Wonderful! 177: Zamboni Birthday

"Hi this is rachel mcelroy either jose this is griffin mcelroy. And this is wonderful. So a hey. This is our second sort of fill in episode that we are recording immediately after recording the landfill in episode. So we're feeling loosey. Goosey wish we could call them. Okay so i have an idea for what we can call these. Okay because fillon sounds like we're not really putting their heart into it and not. I kinda wanna call it like a dandelion episode. We are just you know. Just like blowing into a dandelions and the little dandelions seeds are going into the future and planting flowers. Well that's good so rather than filling. Can we call these two lion episodes. I think i think people are going to hear that. And they're going to go. I know exactly what that me. Which is my favorite thing about it. So i'll yes. We did just finished recording another episode. But we're but we're now we're warmed up up aren't that's one way thing. I never think about it like that. As much as i think about it as i'm now i'm exhausted and anything goes we're gonna get rough and raw in this one which is appropriate because we never described. Show that way rough and raw okay. Well then it's not going to be breath and raw. Then it'll be very manicured and buttoned up and cooked cooked thoroughly thoroughly roasted. We talk about things that we liked things that were into on. This show called wonderful and a lot of stuff in our lives have changed during the pandemic during during this quarantine time. You've been pregnant for about seventeen months out. I was pregnant. Maybe three or four months into the pandemic. I guess Which makes feel like the whole penman. Basically the thing that has changed. Most i feel like in our lives during this time has been the rise of hockey as a thing that we now care a lot about. I don't know that that's fair to say the thing that has changed. Most in my luck during the pandemic is that hockey has become a thing. That i i would say if nothing else i have returned to something that i used to be a big part of my life and interesting and i had kind of stepped away from Really not until. I moved out of my parent's house and didn't have a bud to watch hockey right and you know it's not the easiest sport to find on television if you don't have cable And i didn't have cable or an app dedicated to hockey until very recently. Now we do and now we do. We've watched Saint louis blues games as that. Is the team that you grew up admiring his now. Sort of our our team and i remember we watched anytime. They're in the playoffs. We would watch charity pretty religiously but the idea of watching every game. Yeah of an entire season of any sport is. It is wild to me that we have done that. But like in this hockey season we have watched every single blues game without fail. And that's pretty wild and so this. This episode is about hockey this episodes about hockey and how it has finally clicked as i guess. It's more about sort of like the concept of sports and why people like them. Because i feel like that's a big topic that i only kind of now just get Have you have you had any passing interest in watching sports or being a fan of team outside of the saint louis blues. I mean baseball and that was largely because from saint louis. Cardinals are a very good team and have always been more or less. Yeah and so. I went to baseball games. Like maybe once a year. And i would watch it occasionally but now hockey's the only sport that i enjoyed and became knowledgeable about like the names and stats of players. Yeah yeah i'm there too and that's pretty wild. also i. i have had a couple of flirtations with sports Where when i i grew up watching the reds by which i mean like maybe a couple of games a year in cincinnati and went to a few games because we talked about this very recently going to a baseball game is is pretty fun. Watching a baseball game on television is the opposite of fund even when they were like in the in the playoffs and it was like they were a great team at year. It was a total fucking snooze. Fest so your dad has always been a big sports fan. Dad has always been a big sports fan. He was a commentator for For marshall football for a while And yeah. I mean growing up because he bounced around a lot when he was younger i feel like he sort of adopted a bunch of different teams. I remember he was a bucks fan and bengals fan and a browns fan to a lesser extent and then was reds fan And yeah has just had college sports too. I feel like he like ohio. Oh yeah ohio state for sure less so these days but but yeah definitely was into that but it didn't it never really rubbed off right so we all played sports at different times in our life but i feel like that's not uncommon each just never we never took it to the next level like it never became a it never became a hobby Either watching or playing sports. And i feel like in the one of the main reasons i wanted to do. This episode is the gag is like oh sports ball and and and that comes from a lot of different places right and not being a part of that world growing up and also criticizing and rightly so the many many things that kinda sucks shit about that world on a professional level across so many different sports. And i'm not saying hockey is perfect and argue. That people like people that maybe aren't alienated by sports. Feel alienated by some other interests like music for example like the more time you invest into learning about something and kind of collecting information and the more likely you are too early. Eight the kind of casual fan. Who maybe at some point. It's just like you know what i'm never going to catch up. Forget it right And i can't believe it's hockey. That made me cross that that divide i feel. Yeah i can't really explain so i this is like this is old. This is like an episode of rose buddies where we decided to talk about things that we liked just casually for one special episode. And i talked about the early nineties with the saint louis blues but that was like that was bred hall. That was the brent hall. We have to explain hoop. He's one of the greatest hockey players ever played the game like i was talking to griffin the other day about the phenomenon in the nineties of fifty goals in fifty games. Like this idea that you could. You could score a goal if not every game multiple goals in one game so that fifty games. You have fifty goals. Which is something that doesn't happen anymore and like brett hull did this. You know like this is a thing that like him and wayne gretzky. And and maybe if you've ever heard of hockey players like these are the ones you've heard of and like this was happening. My hometown and it was enormous. Sure an exciting to watch even though the team was not particularly good He always was and so this was a big deal like in my house and growing up. And and i don't know i just like kind of fell into it in elementary school and and we would go to two games a year. We will go to a game around my dad's birthday and a game around my birthday. That's delight thong And we i'm this is when my dad started collecting hockey stuff. I like waited in line to get a hockey players signature at like a dillard's or something you know we. We went to the hockey hall of fame. When i was in middle school. That was my first trip out of the country was good a candidate right. I yeah it is is a big part of growing up for me but it was always difficult to find other hockey fans as i got older and so i just kinda fell off watching it is it is i mean the the common thing i feel like that is said about hockey as a sport or pastime in america specifically i guess because i don't think this would be true in canada or you know probably russia. I'm not entirely sure hockey fills there. But i imagine it's quite important is that is sort of the less less love loved Child of family. It's not like it's it's pretty cost prohibitive to to get into hockey yet. You know like you can play football or soccer or baseball just like at a park somewhere. Yeah but with hockey like you know even if you played street hockey on rollerblades like you still had to have a net. You still have sticks. You still have role gear gear football. You just need ball did exactly maybe pads so you don't hurt yourself. Baseball even is just to two things in some like. We would lay down jackets at the park to be our basis like. Yeah it's easy to imprint. But hockey is yeah. That's a good point. I've never played hockey. I have played most other sports at some point in my life. But i've never played hockey. Although now i have the bug i kind of do. I would like to play hockey one. I think said this is. I wanna play hockey. Wants with children. Because i'm thirty three now. I can't take my i hit now like my body is not toughened enough. Sort of withstand that. But i do. Mostly i just want to shoot a puckett a net and see if i could make them here in austin who no longer lives here but he grew up in minnesota has since moved back to minnesota and he played hockey like in college. Like rose was playing at an advanced like almost professional level and he joined like a like an adult fund league. Yeah while he was here in austin and we would occasionally go to his games. And kinda bummed. He's not here anymore. Now that we're watching so much of it because there's just a lot of question a lot of questions about what it's like. It's difficult that's the other thing like griffin will sometimes ask me questions about the game and there's a lot i still don't understand about oh sure Because you can enjoy you know the goal scoring and and such without really understanding why certain whistles are being blown but it is it is. Here's the thing. My appreciation of hockey has developed over this season of watching every game. Because i have learned. Why the whistles get blown sometimes and it makes a lot of sense. Yeah and this is the difference. I think between me and you like you're you're a man that enjoys to find out what the rules are right. Strategy is I just liked that. They skate real fast. And sometimes the puck goes in the net. I but there there. There are a lot of misconceptions. I had about hockey. And i think these are the common misconceptions a that that you have that kind of keeps you from caring about it. I mean aside from the big reason you wouldn't care about sports which is just like i'm not. i'm not a sports fan but what's helping crest. That hill is learning about the rules of hockey has helped me see it as a game. I and that has kind of like blown my mind wide open in that like i love games. I love video games and board games. And i love competition in rule set and i have never i for whatever reason i have always driven this. This firm divider between the games. I play and my love of of well-crafted games and sports because of the like physical element of it. Yeah and it's really really easy to write that off like oh well. That's you know it's a different thing because they are strong and hitting each other and doing all this other stuff when really like the the thing i like the least about hockey is hitting of each other like genuinely makes it tough to watch when somebody gets fucked up which unfortunately for the saint louis blues. They are having a catastrophic season of injuries where a lot of their star players are just out of commission. I don't like that when they fight and they do fight in hockey it is so. It's kind of weird it's to me. It's not the thing i'm like. Yeah it's it's not a bloodthirsty this like. I don't enjoy that part of that and it's strange how they talk about it too because i have noticed this a lot and this has been kind of fascinating to me as an adult watching. They talk about that. Play that kind of rough play and fight as a way to like energized the team and energize the fans. And it's like it's a strange way to kind of couch that like what is basically violence of just right. Yeah we did it to really get the team invested. And it's like oh. I don't know if i like that reasoning. Yeah so there's there's a lot about the feels like kind of like this. This is dangerous and and maybe not something that people should be playing. And i think that's true with a lot of sports. you know. Obviously any football fan would tell you like like i don't. I don't know that this is actually something. We should continue to support but there's an elegance to the rules of it you know and and how it works well and also a lot of the violence that you associate with hockey like a lot of those rules exist to prevent violence to once you watch enough high like and you learn about like You can't trip people like you can't trip people you can't you can't raise your stick up above the top of the goal because that's just a stick being up like that could hit somebody in the face and it does like people do get their immediate repercussions you know like if if you fight your out of the game for five minutes. You know if you like trip somebody. You're out of the game for two minutes like they pull you out and sit you in. What is literally called the penalty right and those are the biggest scoring chances. The other team has another thing. That kinda helped hockey click for me is sort of boiling it down to brass tacks which is like it is a game about hitting the puck into the net and then you can sort of see how everything else that happens in the entire game every rule that exists every strategy. That exists is all about like creating opportunities for that to happen. So that's why like. I used to not understand what icing was and it was like the thing i would always talk about when. Why don't you like hockey. 'cause it's just like people bashing into each other until icing gets called a nobody understands what what it means. Is that like if the other team isn't about to score you can't just hit. The puppets can away from the goal and not like foursquare foursquare you know like no no cherry bombs right and then you think like why not just have one person posted up by the other teams by goal and then just passed the puck and get it in there. Well that's offsides like that. That would matt breaking the rules. The rules are very they make a lot of sense. They are there to keep you from killing each other in sport where friction is an afterthought well in some of the stuff is newer so hockey has always kind of been underdog and they have made changes to the game to make it more exciting and more accessible for like more viewers Like a you know. A lotta sports. I guess do this where they will kind of. Adjust the rules a little bit but like for example like the the smaller for the goalie now and so they like. There's there's less room for like Monopoly for the goalie. Like there's more chances to score because of that like there's there's lots of Lots of changes. That delay of game thing is new. Where like if you accidentally hit it out of the ice like there is a potential penalty associated with that so they they have made changes to make it like even harder and more interesting to the viewers. I feel like you can't really appreciate hockey until you sort of know. Why on the ice does what they are doing. And i feel like it's hard to understand that unless you know like what what it means for them to try and put an opportunity together. Also the players you know. I think that's the thing that i i don't know if you really understood or if i really understood like following more games means have a better understanding of the players and what they've been through and how their talents and like how they work together as a team Those are all things we really spent a lotta time learning this year of like watching From the very beginning as they try to figure out like who do we put on the ice together. Who has the best chemistry who works best together. Yeah i watch the beginning of the season you really get a good sense of like who brings what. Yeah there's there's a story. There's like a narrative to each player's performance on the ice and this is like another like you know the cult of personality that exists around talented. Athletes is again like nothing. I've also never really put much stock in until we started watching hockey like this. And now i feel like i know how each of these individual people plays the game and that it must seem like the most basic thing to somebody who's been watching sports for a while but i think it's just a a thing that you don't sort of realizes something you could care about. I feel like that adds a whole nother element to it. This is like personal investment angle in like the people themselves Which then you know Sports sort of create narratives that spiral out from that and sometimes they're not great but like vladimir tarasenko being injured and then like his story is all about that is like i don't know there's a lot of chances for for these narratives maybe like dehumanizing the actual players themselves but before we before we talk more about players should we should we steal each other. We should definitely steal each other away to tell you about rockies absolutely please you know about those shoes right.

What if you go past fifty and then you cross over like let's say sixty nine that's awesome. Yeah still be dead. 'cause you need more stuff than just mimosa. In your body you need bones and muscle tissue and things like that you know. You can't turn into an alex mack mimosa puddle. Do you know what i mean. I love that though. Yeah i do too. that's fine. where's that we're the host of my brother. My brother me and now nearly ten years into our podcast secret can be revealed. All the closer in place and the world's greatest treasure hunt can now begin embedded in each episode of my brother. My brother is a micro clue that will lead you to fourteen precious gemstones all around this big beautiful blue world of ours so start coming through the episodes. Let's starting at episode one. Oh one on. Yeah the early episodes of pretty problematic. So there's no clues those emphasis no no not at all. The good ones clues a hoy. Listen to every episode repeatedly in sequence. Laugh if you must but mainly get all the great clues my brother my brother meet. It's an advice. Show kind of a treasure hunt mainly anywhere you find podcasts or treasure maps. My brother-in-law me. The hunt is on a player. The other thing that we've really become familiar with two is is injuries and s. And how like how much these players are risking. Every time that they go out and play And watching these players come back after missing a few games the only to see them get injured again. You realize like how devastating it can be to a you know really invest in trying to win right and when you're using your body to do it. Yeah i mean. That's a thing about hockey. I feel like is there are players who will throw themselves in front of a shot which i feel a another thing that i've come to appreciate watching hockey as much as we have is. Just the enormous physical told that the game takes on you where a a puck is not a like from a ballistic standpoint. Not a small object to be fired at your body. Yeah at you know. Eighty miles an hour or whatever Well and that's the thing to get the mobility. You need to go up and down the ice like you can't have pads over one hundred percent of your body like you need some movement and so you need some space where your body is not covered. Yes so there's hockey players who are fast like jordan. Cairo who is a is a fast fast gentleman who can get down the ice really really quick but then like he cannot throw himself in front of a puck and he cannot if he gets hit into the wall too hard. He will fall down because he's the little gentleman. But then there's tough then. There's like tough defenders. Who will like there are people whose role it is on the team to do a fight. This is the thing we've learned about. Where like if you see this person on the ice they are meant to intimidate you because if you are being a little too rough with the other players if you are checking them into the wall and like really going at them then they may put their fight guy on the ice and then you have to maybe bianca behavior because the fight guy may try and fight you. This was the thing. When i like when i first started watching hockey. I feel it was a lot more prevalent. Because i still remember there was. There was kelly chase and there was tony. Twist and these were two. Why do they to saint louis blues players whose whole job was to just like really really stir stuff up on the ice and gently had penalties And it was just kind of the thing of like you're going to send them out and if you saw them on the ice you knew what was coming from that psychological aspect didn't make much sense to me intel. I put myself in the shoes of player on the ice right. And this is a thought exercise that i find very engaging while watching hockey where like us see the few seconds that somebody has the puck like in the opponent zone like trying to figure out how they can get that puck to somebody who can hit it in the net but also there is a big man like coming at you very fast and you know that big man does not possess the facilities to stop slow down because this is in your on blades and so it won't be possible for as many stop so you're going to be here in a few seconds pretty hard and pretty bad and all you can hope is that it's a good hair and not a nasty. Yeah and it's also like how can i. But what is the sort of calculation in my head of of a geometry of this pass to make it is a wild amount of focus required and also like oh but they also have their fight guy on the ice. Yeah there are. I mean just like football. There are like there are rules and guidance provided on like ways to do hits that are clean and are less likely to injure people and people you do. learn this But it doesn't always work out that way And that's when penalties happen but you will see sometimes like a player if somebody escaping towards them. You will see a player just kind of lean down a little bit and if that players and paying attention they will just flip right over label. Yeah they will be. Yeah it's it's so in my mind. I feel like I've started to categorize sports into two camps and they are the like a lot of stoppage of play camp like by design and the more sort of the clock keeps ticking down camp like soccer and hockey in my mind are on this thing. I still have not cross. Oh i still don't find soccer very interesting soccer. Is i think hockey without the ice. And the as quite as much hitting and It just takes them a bit longer to go from one side to the other. So maybe that soccer is filmed like hockey. They have cameras all over right. And you're very close to the players. I feel like a lot of time like you don't usually see the whole ice when you're watching a game. Where soccer i feel like. It's very hard for me to get at and connected to what is going on running because the cameras up really high like you're looking at the whole field just by nature of the way it is filmed a lot of times and i don't know what's going on. Yeah but in the other camp is like baseball and football where like football. The in baseball like the stoppage of play is like inherent to the thing. I mean baseball is technically technically. Its own camp. Yeah basically just doesn't start. Baseball could last seven hours no guidance around the another hockey hockey's like the games usually take around the same amount of time they go into overtime and shootouts. Sometimes those are over with very very quickly but baseball could be holy shit you could be in there for the long haul has another thing. They change overtime. Used to be a full twenty minutes of play used to be like a fourth period and they have changed it now nelson minutes and then we complain about this a lot because it is not what i grew up with. Oh no it's not so like yeah. I feel like you have to be watching the whole time during hockey. Because it's always moving and once you start understanding like how your team plays and what it looks like for them to start putting like a shooting opportunity together that's when that's when it like really unlocks that's what that's for me. That was the final step that i needed to like. Enjoy watching hockey as much as we watch hockey now and it also helps. This is a weird season where they basically broken each of the like Leagues down into like these tiny little clusters because of covid nineteen so we have mostly watched the blues. Play the same. What four teams over and over again. So now i also know like what it looks like for the san jose sharks to like start putting something together and what it means for the blues to train like break that which is a deeper understanding of hockey. That is very kind of disheartening. That i read today and makes total sense so some of the best teams in the blue division had a lot of cova cases so they weren't playing the front half so the blues were primarily playing teams. That weren't ranked as well. Yeah so the blues like shot up to first place and it was like they're having a good season and now like somebody wrote an article about how the back half of the schedule is focused a lot more on those like real experts and how their record me may plummet may offer. They don't figure something out there playing with half of the team at this point so i think if they can make the playoffs that'll be a a triumph of the human spirit. Hey here's another thing about being into sport is that you have tv to watch a few nights. Yeah so the blues play almost every other day so unlike football for example where you may get a game twice a week. No once every i mean if you're only following one team. It is one one really monday and sunday once a week day. Sometimes that's just because there's a lot of teams. Okay now. If you follow one team it's just one game knows. Yeah you'll get a game almost every other day sometimes two in a row and there isn't a lotta television right now to watch that we're watching so this fills in the gaps quite nice. I told rachel day. Like oh we're going to do and there's no hockey on right now because we spend a lot of our nights watching start going to bed earlier i guess. Yeah that's a that's a. That's a very rewarding thing. There's there's this is. I think when we talked about doing this episode. Like the. I i wanted to send it back in time to myself when i was very much in that camp of just like you know of a sports ball. How do how do sports. Why when like. I get like i understand it as a pastime. I understand it as a like game that you can appreciate watching i understand. I'm speaking of hockey specifically right now. But probably like i understand why people watch sports now. Yeah and i recognize that a lot of people may not listen to this episode. Because if you're not interested in sports two people talking about it is really gonna push you over. The edge really isn't investment time. Like you know you can't watch one game and thing like i am sports now now like you really have to kind of get to know like how things work but you know what's wild there. There's not really resources out there. That i have found to teach you how to get into a sport or a team. That's true and i mean like it is an ocean is vast ocean any sport even one with like the not as huge following hockey like I there's nothing out there to teach you Is there like a youtube video that you go to to learn the rules of hockey. There probably is but like the thought has never really crossed my mind to do that. I don't know how one we follow the blues. I feel like i know the blues very very well at this point but like how do you find out what the other teams are up to. The sinked way is that is that sports center. I don't know yeah no matter what. It's a big commitment of time. It's a big commitment of time again. Not a clear path. That's really interesting about fantasy football. Because i feel like i have known more people and seeing it happen more times where people will get into football because they have joined some league and they have made arbitrary choices as to who will be on their fantasy team and they start kind of following the sport because they're trying to like win that that piece like i'm gonna win fantasy football because that is a game that i can play on my phone and kind of understand. Yeah that's an enormous. Yeah i've stopped. I don't give a shit. I don't really give a shit about football at all anymore. I did fantasy football and actually did really well. The year that i committed to it. Because you it required a level of attentiveness. right And you know just kind of looking at ratings and making decisions. But i think about that a lot like we have a lot of friends and know a lot of people that are interested in board games yes And so they're the interest of of game is there but there it it just as difficult to cross over into professional sports yeah. I'm always saying that. I've tried so many times to cross over into professionals. It's a different i. It is d stigmatized to me like the concept of watching. Sports are being a sporting fan not to de-stigmatising the apologetic that into that for what is wrong with the league of whatever sport that you're watching but like i don't know we did a live show the other day and the producer of the live show was wearing a minnesota wild hat and i was like. Oh you're a wild fan. Yeah i'm blues fan. Congratulations your team is quite good this year. Now that they're not all ill from covid nineteen and he was like. Yeah and i like a very short conversation about hockey. And i realized i have literally in my life never done that before for even so like even when i was like you know watching every packers game when i was living in chicago. I wasn't confident enough to go up to somebody on the street and be like oo a bruins fan like hockey team team like a bills fan. That was. they have like didn't have that that confidence to do it. But i i don't know it's a weird thing i explain. I feel like like if i were to say why like hockey more than other sports. It would be difficult for me to do that. Because i don't know enough about the schwartz right to really say something about hockey that maybe isn't also true of other sports. Yeah i know. It's just for whatever reason i feel like. I understand what it takes to be successful at hockey. You way more than i do it like what is that. Look like for baseball. Like how do you be good at baseball bat. Really good enough to hit it out. And then you've got to have the right guys out there to catch it. If got like i don't know it will also say and this may be true of other teams but some of it is the fact that the saint louis blues announcers. Oh my god. Do just a phenomenal job. I've not even taken the time to learn these gentlemen's names but it's two of them and one is darren. Darren is the color commentary. Okay the he is the one that like gives us all the nice little anecdotes and just the real enthusiasm for the game and he used to be a goalie. I guess 'cause he talks a lot about the goaltenders are choosing to do the other guy get the guys. She's just teaching. He knows he knows the game. The game got a very great announcer quality to him true and he puts up with a lot of darren's bullshit. Because darren says a lot of two things you need to know about darren and this is. I didn't know that teams had their own sort of announcers that kinda like follow them around depending on. What like what network washington's But darren lisa say holy jump and but that's all he says that's his exclamation. It's just weird. I don't know how you get there. I don't know what kind of life you lead. That holy jumping becomes like your thing that you shout out. But the other thing about darren is he knows everybody's birthday on the higher up. Yeah i am bony driver his son dylan. It's his birthday. Holy shit jaren. What like who celebrating the anniversary. I mean some of this is probably fed to him but he shares it with such enthusiasm. Yeah it's just like oh you know so and so son you know just graduated high school this year. You know and it's just it's charming. I don't know and then you seek watch some other feed from some of other team now wearing asked. This is what has been exciting for us about Investing in an actual like app where we can watch the games as as delivered by the local announcers so you get that like real commitment to the team which makes a big difference yes a it ain't cheap having a subscription to the nhl app but it is it answers a lot of those questions. I pose the beginning of like. Where do you want. I mean that's the thing when i was growing up like this was unlike jammie. Tv like you could and this is true of a lot of people who live in larger cities. Unfortunately not austin like if you have a home team you can watch them on just like if you. If you still had an antenna you could probably watch them on the television. Yeah but we we do not have that now. We could maybe go to dallas someday to watch stars game gas. Yeah that's hockey. It's it is a weird. It's a weird thing to be to have as a as an honest to god hobby especially since like i genuinely thought i had passed the point in my life where i would even consider like becoming a fan of of sport like this and i'm so glad you did. I'm so glad you did because it. It has given us kind of something to do as a couple In the evenings and kind of share excitement for and follow. And and i've gotten to the point where like i will see like sometimes just have on in the background just like highlights like the top ten shots from the from the western division this week and i'll bet mind watching wouldn't mind watching ten very good hoppy goals. Yeah i will like read articles and like look at the press conferences after the game like. I don't know that we can keep this up In future years. But it's been a really nice thing this year. Yeah so. I guess all this say open your heart. Open your heart to hockey. I asked griffin if we should do some research Because i felt like you know should we really educate people on on how the game works and the elements of it and the history and no we decided learn. What icing is learn. What offsides is yeah and then you can more or less kind of understand the flow of hockey Which is a good flow because again there is no friction they move in such beautiful orbits around one another it is. It's it's it's a very good sport so two that's it Fuck all other sports though. Wow except highlight anything. Highlights the hockey of balls. That's not true soccer's probably soccer was. Hey thank you so much for listening to this. Very strange episode. Hopefully we'll be back in the saddle soon. Who knows maybe next week. It would be nice but babies you know life finds away she do.

Kings vs Blues Postgame

"Doubted stickhandling back for doughty. doughty straight away follow US law. It's real good chignons year. Due to the shortage of time we'll get right down to work. This is an all the kingsman post game podcast. Now here's your host Jesse Colin. Welcome kings fans. I am Jesse Cohen. This is all the king's men men and we're bringing you tidings of comfort and joy hopefully merry Christmas happy Hanukkah happy New Year. Dave Jovan are here to try and brighten your hockey spirits even after disappointing disappointing loss. The Saint Louis Blues. We've got ten new questions facing the La Kings for the second half of this season. We thought of on the spots of sit back sip your cocoa and hopefully enjoy listening ramblings. Don't forget to check your e stocking for presents on Christmas morning. We are high above the ice labeled center on the Bob Miller. NOPE NOPE nope not. We are high above the ice in the Bob Miller press box etaples center. I think that's how it said anyway joining me tonight Dave Joe. How're you doing tonight? And as Steve Jesse. I'm doing well and happy holidays to you whether you celebrate Hannukah or Christmas or both or both happy holiday. Yeah now Mary. I would say merry Christmas. Because I'm of that faith ears peers might spill against Hanukkah or Christmas or any any the nor- do I hear. Here's my personal approach towards it as a a a a in the wild North American secular Jew. Well Yeah we're where we're rare sometimes season the wild But no look doc. Look we're all ideologically compromise on all of these holidays right like the original traditions. That started all of these holidays. Or I'm getting way off base here but they're all couched in like you know some form of of Devout religious dogma. That I don't personally subscribe to hear here but when somebody says to me Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays Happy Hanukkah or whatever it is they say well I choose to interpreted that as you're my friend. I Mike Care about you. I wish you well and so I don't get caught up in which version of that message is extended. Well said Jesse so thanks for your host. This show that's right. Merry Christmas look the Kings get their heads knocked in the first period. Merry Christmas or Mary festivus pessimist I suppose it is the twenty third still while recording this You asked me a question right before we started recording. which was Was I surprised that that Jonathan Quick started the second period did ask you that. Yeah and I was not surprised you weren't and the reason I was not surprised was because as you yourself have pointed out many times the first the game back after a road trip stole my Li- yeah mine and and this was a I think in arguably the best road trip of the last fifteen eighteen months. Oh Yeah I don't think there's an argument being made there so this was this was gonna be stinker a worst it come first game back after defending Stanley Cup champion building. And that's the other thing. The Saint Louis Blues are really good team. Yeah and so I- Brayden. Jen can play. He can wasn't used a cane. He was yes you was and not only was he king at one point but I was watching sort of a snippet of the pre regain before the game started and they were talking about their coach Craig Brew and how he was hired last season chief in November now Darryl Sutter was hired I think in December December of two thousand twelve but So there's a little bit of similarity there. But then I started thinking back. You know in the off season the Blues Brandon Ryan. O'Reilly you know. And the assumption was oh adding Rhino Riley will make them contenders and they got off to a slow start and it wasn't working out and they fired their coach and I thought back to Mike Richards and you know so I was sort of reflecting backwards on some parallels rate and you know look the Kings after they won the Cup in two thousand twelve that next season they were awfully good. They weren't weren't as good as the blackhawks but they were awfully good. And the Saint Louis Loser awfully good and this game was out of hand early and so no. I wasn't surprised that they didn't whole Jonathan Quick. Because I don't I mean it was Ford and nothing scoring five goals against the defending Stanley Cup champions on a night when they have already twelve minutes into the game proven that they're rolling. Yeah that's hall order. That isn't tall order. And this team was not Saint Saint Louis was not going to back down the parallels. It's actually that's funny that you bring that up is quite similar with the O'Reilly acquisition. And then you've got like for instance. This year they have Brayden Schenn lighting up the scoreboard and David Perron. WHO's lighting up? The scoreboard. Alex Angela has been great on the back end and they've got solid goaltending so the parallels continue so you had Kotaro and Carter who were lighting it up the in two thousand twelve. You had drew doughty on the back end. Who was yeah? An animal and Johnny quick was safe and everything that got shot his way. So you could. You can see the parallels continue. This is a very good hockey team. It so so the fact act they got beat. Four one is is not should not come to surprise to anybody. Numbers came back after a long road trip I don't WanNa say it's to be expected but it's kind of to be expected right. I mean I think I would've been I would've been surprised if it was four to one. La At the end of this. Yeah and and look I saw I mean whether or not it it quote unquote should be acceptable as should be expected. You know. I'm sure if you ask John McClellan before or after the game you know hey. Scheduled lost their a coach. Like I'm sure where he would reject that. Say everything that you're supposed to say but if you ask everybody the media the fans right anybody who doesn't have skin in the game yeah we we all knew this they were they. Were going to lose your ups and I'm not a senators away. Yeah their minds. I mean they gotta get presents for their kids. I haven't even seen I mean it's been two weeks since they've probably seen there right. So and and the reality is let's just take a deep breath. The reality is this season I said it during the pre-game show they're not going to be as bad as Detroit. They're probably not going to be as bad as New Jersey and so the question is Chicago. Anaheim San Jose. La Ottawa may be Columbus. Maybe even the Rangers take a dip or any of those other teams that I mentioned rise up a little bit. The rest of those teams are gonNA fill out. You Know Twenty through twenty nine th place. There were twenty three through twenty nine whatever winds a. b. and then there'll be a lottery right and and it'll slot out the way it's lots out and who knows maybe Detroit doesn't get the number. One of the point is there is no controlling it so I'm not going to adjust. Spent one season. You know Lose for Hughes and all that stuff spent an entire for yeah yeah. I'm not doing right like since they. This is the first time you and I have spoken since the truck situation. Asian finally resolved itself. Oh yeah since Kovalchuk has been held out of the lineup. I believe their record is a game above five five hundred or maybe they're at five hundred. Now I'm going to have to look it up as well that's interest. I should have known this but the point is they are a completely different team with him out of the lineup. Why is that seriously? Why is that? Because he's not. He's not a good hockey player. Well I would disagree with you there. I think he's I think he's in above average hockey player. Well we we would have to quibble over definition. He's a skilled hockey player right. But I don't think I don't think he's good at playing hockey. I think he is good at the calm. I think he is good at the skills that generally help one be a good hockey player. Okay but I don't think he is good at playing the game of hockey. How about this? How about I throw this at you? Yes maybe maybe. He doesn't fit into the system that the kings would like to. I think that's a very nice way of saying what I am willing to say. which has no longer a good hockey player her? Well I wouldn't go that. Nobody else wants to go that I would. I would just say. He works hard his his yes his work ethic off. The ICE is fantastic Iraq. He's in he's a very nice man. I've heard his information right and he drives a really nice. Yes S. unfortunately when it comes to playing hockey he's not good at it anymore. Well I used to go still has a good shot. Yup and he still can skate faster than a replacement level player. Might I say this though you can say whatever you like I think this is my prediction ya not. I don't know where he's going to end up but if he plays plays in the NHL this year he's going to help someone make a very deep Stanley Cup run. And I'M NOT GONNA say this I'm not gonNA say that that. That team is going to win the Stanley Cup. Not GonNa take it that for sure. Because I don't know where he's going to end up but I think he is going to be in addition to that team while he will be if if it happens he will be in addition that is true whether it all in addition. Well I got to disagree with you on there but we'll find out but regardless I'm looking at it up here. I'm not knocking the Kings for doing what they did. I think I think they made the move that they had to make but that being said if he's utilized on a on a good team in the right situation situations he can really be beneficial to that team this team. I don't think he fits picky pits while he does without. No No. I clearly clearly does not fit the the team. Question is so since he left the team. Yup according assuming that this is all up to date and I believe it is the kings are ten hen nine and three for five twenty three win percentage. Now that's not great. That's bears out over an eighty two game season. That's eighty six points so you're still probably missing in the playoffs. Yup but given that they finished last season with like seventy four or something around that neighborhood seventy one seventy three something like that and they were projected by some people to finish the season with fifty. Five eighty. Six points is progress and given they're already committed to making shifts and rain younger bigger players in the moving out veterans. I'm comfortable with saying this season. They are significantly better than last season. Now that they no longer have global check and and so I am. I am ready to embrace the second half of the season knowing full. Well that they're going to miss the playoffs and knowing full well they are not going to get the number one overall pick unless they win the lottery. So I'm just reevaluating my expectations because we know day. Happiness as measured by expectation. Uh We do know that some wise man once said that many times so rather than talk about the game tonight. Okay as we've just covered you talk about Saint Louis to power play goals in the first period. I mean we look this team. This team is decent five on five. Alex portraying. And they're rough on specialties. Right like that's not new information. No the king's power play is confusingly bad and the penalty kill score parkway golden. I know they did and I saw some people complaining that they only went one for five and I wanted to say like one dollars twenty percent. That's actually it's pretty good. Yeah is a lot better than they have been on the season so I'll take it right but the penalty kill is rough. Um and look Saint Louis. powerplay was top ten. I want to say they were seventh. May Be coming in. So I'm just not gonNA feel bad about losing to the best team in the West one. We're the worst team in the West is just right as Christmas. You can't make me feel like you can't make me feel bad about it right you can make you can make me feel bad about celebrating Christmas on Jewish. But you. But you can't make I was. I was surprised that there were so many Saint Louis Blues fans here tonight. I was shocked what what is with that. Well I mean the bandwagon is obviously of course. But we've never seen that. I will never never been good before. I've never heard that many St Louis Blues van saying I'm assuming what happens. Is that that like every other Lesser City in North America when they're citizens moved to our fair city of Los Angeles. They basically team. They don't but they only leadership off their chest out after they've won something right so like yeah. Blue Sands wouldn't make the tractors staple center because for years. Their team has just been a number one any. They've just been another never ever was right but now they come in as the you know it's Christmas or the reigning champs. They got Jon Hamm on their side. John Hampshire Nigerian and wearing the hat of lies. Is People on twitter recall. The hat lies because he has his hat that he claims he had since he was a kid or something but somebody figured out that the logo on the hat wasn't actually introduced until like two thousand nine nine or something else lose hat. Yeah Okay and it's like I never heard. YEAH HE I. I can't remember when he claims he got the hat. And somebody did the homework and realized that that the worst. It doesn't look as a story. But whatever the guys from stolen Valor Kansas City. Right Jon Hamm and I have something in common I'm sure you have plenty of things in common. Well that's about to is one knows all thing but we we. We both appeared on the same episode of Jimmy Kimmel. Hey there you go jon. Hamm's dressing rooms down the hall from Dave Joseph Dressing Awesome. I don't know I've never been on Jimmy Kimmel. Show Um uh-huh try so we're we're talking about the fans the Saint Louis. Louis Yeah so many Blues Jerseys out there tonight. I'm in a really weird place when it comes to the blues because for four or two decades. They've I carried around an emotional scar on my heart from the Ninety Eight playoff series when kings had three nothing leading in three took a five minute had a penalty and then had four goals scored on them in the in the ensuing. Five minute penalty and I. I was marrying that all these years hated the blues. Wow two decades something about and didn't even go away when the Kings won the Stanley Cup in two thousand twelve helped a little bit that the first sweep kings history came against the Saint Louis Blues. How the Matt Green Goal Against Saint? No it's great like it helps to make you go. It helped a lot okay. Great goal was and my favorite moment. Honestly my favorite moment went in kings. History actually isn't either coupling. It's Dustin Brown scoring the empty netter in game. Four against Louis to secure the sweep. I weep in history and I have never heard staples louder than that moment. That was pretty low even louder than now. I think it's a issue of timing because when they won the Cup in two thousand twelve we had three quarters of the game to wrap our brain around the fact that we were GonNa Win Right. 'CAUSE 'cause they opened up a lead and ranked New Jersey and was just done with the game has been so dominant so then when they finally and and the thing is also my brain exploded when they won so I don't remember how loud it wasn't the building because I all my memories are of internal all of me like realizing within. I'm about to start crying. My father which is something I hadn't done since I was a child anyway. The point is that that helped My hatred of the blues but it didn't erase it completely right and then I think we beat them in two thousand thirteen to yes because they opened up a to nothing lead lead. Yes on the road and then we came back so at them a gentleman. Sweep whatever it's called when you let him win the first so anyway. The point is that I still hated to plant something happened in the ensuing. Four or five years where I just slowly let it go and stop caring about it and then last year when they won the cup is one of those everybody was so on board with it. I just didn't have the energy to be like the one guy fighting fighting against the the ties and I was like whatever so now I just now. They're just another team that happens to be better than the Kings To be honest I kind of miss it kind of like having that visceral visceral hatred. Yeah like Hey. I don't know if you're probably not familiar. But there's this old Vaudeville sketch where a guy if you say. The words Niagara Falls loses his mind and he's on stage and he says like Niagara Falls House land he starts telling the story and then at the end of the story. He's finding sort of calmed down. And then somebody says the Niagara Falls are GONNA triggers. That would be me if you said freak out and tell the story like I remember being at a fan event having too many adult beverages like grabbing some fans who didn't like who hadn't been vans and ninety eight and screaming at them Mike you don't say another just another team and whatever so they're fans it's it didn't bug me. I just look at him and I got like I get it banned like you on the backup. It won't be like that next now Man I've totally lost track of what we're talking about this game they lost. It's not a big deal yet. Moving on Yeah. So so as I said that since Kabul Chuck is gone there about a five hundred team. I think they'll probably float around that number as the season goes on we. Finally we saw they can put together some wins on the road and look you tax too. Metering the road trip. They looked good. Yeah I actually texted you. This team is really good. which which a AH after the end it was before the buffalo game? They still looks good and they had points in every game where they had eight points out of ten going into the buffalo game and then see finished with eight points the twelve because win the game obviously but still in the game. They weren't it's not like they were massively outplayed by the sabres so they were in every game and looked at all the went off without his leg right. What are you GonNa Difference of the game? So I mean I I when I say any point streak goes by either way so but but promising is an Odyssey's six game boy when seen that quite some time look before tonight and like I said we all pretty much knew they were in the night four tonight. I think they're home. Record was ten six and one or eleven six hundred one I may have them and look it up real quick right now. That sounds right but I mean they were good home team with a with an absolutely terrible road record occurred but as I just said. We've seen them now on an extended road trip out. Couple check in the lineup. You've started to figure out and I'M GONNA keep saying the words without Cova check in the lineup which started to to see. McClellan figure some things out you know the the Wagner Cambay Lozad line now lines really good there buzz. And they're starting to put pox in them. They are buzzing. So that's that's a line. I follow copaxone Brown. Like yes co Petar can be a little bit streaky Anna. Somebody many people have waited on line. He does tend to his point. totals tend to dip in December and January. So that's a concern but look. Trevor Lewis is out. They called up. Martin Firkh grunts term in law for going to be in out like. We're we're answering questions. That's all we really. They wanted to do the right. And did I not say in this podcast not too long ago that I was curious when they were going to bring up Martin for you did. I think I did say that you did and I only say that because I get to see him play in Ontario. Haven't been antero. Please come to a game and watch the rain play. It's good to see these young kids. Excel Excel and get playing time and and see them do well But Barton Kirk was one of the guys I think he was leading the team in scoring at the time when they called him up. And he's I've got a bullet for a shot. It's just an absolute rocket like some goalies have said it's the hardest shot they've ever seen. I'm anxious to see him in the lineup. I hope he gets into the lineup. It gets playing time. I think he's going to be an asset to this team and I know he's not one of the He's not in the king's pipeline so to speak he wasn't the guy at one of the guys who was drafted or recruited. It'd running but he is still an asset to this team with with what he brings with his shot and with the way plays the game so I make sure SOC- MARTINSBURG plan. Hopefully that happen soon. Yeah I was curious. 'cause I mean I'm assuming Martin Lewis. I'm assuming trevor. Lewis is out for a while with upper body in jail right the ashes code for a concussion because you know he bought himself a pretty good there in the head but look in October. They were foreign nine in not a good month now in November they were seven five and two pretty good month and in December. Now they're four six into with ninth grade regains left I think so so I mean hypothetically they could wind up going four nine into which would put them about where they were in October or they could go seven six into they got so. I mean we'll find find out but but I would. I would very much like to see this team hover around five hundred for the next three months because like I said you're gonNA wind up somewhere in a in a in a mishmash with you know. San Jose is one eight one in their last hand. Man I'm as four six in their last last ten Calgary while Calgary's actually rebounder six three and one but Edmonton's back on the way down which is hilarious. Yeah you you know Kogyo is Four or five and one in their last taves made a comment today saying like you know we can't keep having this slide on Corsica Avenue they gotta figure out what they're gonNA do the SEABROOK and and Look New Jersey's twenty nine points. The rangers have thirty eight poisoning. The kings up thirty four. So there's GonNa be so whatever it is what it's GonNa so what I WanNa don't ask me what I want to talk about in the remaining time we have this because it's Christmas and I wanted you know I'll give the kings fan something about sure over the holiday sales of gifts. Thanks well some president. I don't know I don't know if my rambling councils the president but we do there will be a present for you Chris Mornings but this isn't it But when the season started we did the ten biggest questions facing the La Kings have gone revisited at every ten games. OR JUST GONNA run. I'm not going to look for the answers. We're GONNA run through the questions lessons right now because the reality is we need some new questions as we've gotten a lot more answers. I didn't think we'd have as many answers as we do. At this point if you have a lot of anti I right now so the first one was what's going to happen with Pierre and foot. Well we got. We already know nine games or three games. And he's in Ontario now. He's the world juniors he not gonNA play more than nine games in the kings uniform. This season next question will Grunstein Wagner progress. I think with Wagner we can say yes even though scoring is struggling. He's playing figuring out like I said we're GONNA regular roles Brunson mostly ex wife knows what becomes available while we know he's gone The next question was what happens to the rest of the defense. They're improving Roy can't klay got caught up and Ruin Walker. I really like Is Jeff Carter viable offensive weapon. I would say yes Is Camping Center. No here's the first and then when we're now number four with the first question we don't have an answer to yet which is what happens the title of the Foley. Oh I don't know but he looks good so maybe he gets worse. Look terrific as of late next question is McClellan Laura coach I would have to say yes percent yes because honestly I think he's the reason John is gone frankly And then which Andrzej. Kobe tired to see season. Good copay tar who doesn't produce points at the same rate in December apparently but still right like pretty darn good. He's pretty during got pretty darn good and then the final and we will never have an answer until something happens. WH- who starts on goal in two thousand twenty one we don't know So with basically half the season left what are new questions like. What are you curious about? How how the rest of the season Blazer depth at center senator concerns me okay? Who who will be the second line center should we should we? Okay so let's ask best. Let's phrase it this way. What is the ceiling for Cambay Lozad in Wagga Egg? Because I got to say there are moments I mean I jokingly asked during the road trip is Lozada the best player on the team right now and I get it I get it. He's not I get it like everybody might be the hardest work. Everybody thinks I'm an idiot. Calmed down he might be the hardest working player on the team or generate. The most buzz on the. Yeah yeah I mean so so. What's the ceiling ailing? Right are they answering his is Wagner Lozad and Cambay a good third line on on non-competitive Seen Mook and take advantage of other teams may be taking their foot off the gas right. That's a good way to put it or can they keep this up for fifty games and actually actually you know what we need the answer to that question and we may not get it. But I'm right little trending that way though that that they are that kind of a line that can do that every night. It seems every night we see the same thing from them. They cause havoc in the other team zone. They may not. It may not pay off in a in a in a goal but they've created many scoring chances and it's just a matter of finishing those chances so can they finish those. Chances will only time will tell like you said. Yeah but I think. Obviously they've proven that they can the the s disturbers down there that they need to be alike right yeah and wreak havoc in zone. Keep the PUCK in the other team zone for thirty seconds. It's a minute minute half whatever. It is I like that line so I think that's that is ripe fair and valid question. The next one what happens will gave Ardi right like yeah does he is he is he. Fine right is gave Is he healthy right. Is that what you're saying. Yeah or is he fine in that he can play and just get through it well. Health is things because it's like. Is he healthy. The answer's Yes. Yes until it is right like there's no all right we've seen nothing to say that he isn't healthy because he's been playing all guess what I mean. Does he finished the season and he's been producing if right if he plays whatever forty games in a Ranger Jersey and he finishes thirty five. That's a success thumbs up next season. He's into Clubs Jersey. Yep moving forward uh-huh is question. We'll just blow your good phrase it as okay We have to include the goalie question because at some point. Someone's gotta go so right. Someone will be moved. Yeah we'll call the goalie triangle. In some way yeah. Yeah Yeah I'm GonNa ruin head whether it's yeah I'm Gonna I'm gonNA switch the copay Tara question the which on Jaco Petar we getting too which drew doughty. Are we going to get. Because I thought he's looked better. I think that's fair right. After they broke up the doughty Walker Combo. I think he's been sort of back to normal right right. I thought he was struggling. May Not be the right word but in in was the word. I'm looking for Sorts of the C- consistent he was inconsistent And then they put him together with Walker they both got better than they split them up. They put Walker with lesser partners. And it's I don't WanNa say it's hurt walkers there's game but his hurt his numbers because as much as we all like Curtis McDermott and acknowledged the positives he brings to the table. He's not as well rounded a defensive partner right so that you know but in the meantime drew doughty I think is played better so the question is are we gonna get an invested focused efficient officiant all star level dowdy or not I. It doesn't work question three three. Yeah you got any anything else you WANNA. I don't know. Should we go back because the default thing is still right. We still need to know what happens to fully. So we've got five so far we just need five more Doesn't have to be ten. I suppose we could just do however I feel that it. That second line concerns me which which one exactly. Well that's why so. What what what is the second? What is the second one? We know what the first line is. And that's actually another question. Who is this? Alexai follows stick with the first line. Well that is. I mean. That's a question. The answer is yes however what happens if there is a healthy Gabriel. Volare Rudd happens if there if if grunts drum starts to shine what happens if any of these guys who are they who are going to be called up or have been called up. Start to play better. Does someone then slot in on that first line. Other than Alex I follow or is he the player to play with. Dustin Brown and Andrzej Kot Petar. Because obviously there's a chemistry there so one of the things I said on the pre-game show tonight is talking about the nine guys that have been named of the world. Juniors Ross is incredible yeah and and I said one of the reasons. I don't care air if the Kings don't get a top three pick. This year is because Blake Lozad is a revelation I mean I honestly just never took him seriously As a as a possibility I he's you know five foot. Whatever he is an anti was an undrafted college free agent and so I just thought reason for that? I just thought it was symbolic right. It was like we're new chart charting a new identity new chorus new destiny and this kid came in. And he you know hustles little buns often so big old Adeboye on it for him and Hey veterans you'd better watch out because we're going to go ahead and we're going to reward hard work so so if you're not working hard you know on you. And then he's great. I mean great like he's not connery. David don't anybody take take my words out of context here but that campaign goal against buffalo where Wagner goes into the coroner gets knocked down decrees over and Lozad also gets knocked over Bu- uh-huh growls the PUCK finds campaign. Pass off that I mean. Come on that's a great. NHL play well. Did you see the move tonight with a little spin around in the offensive zone where he peeled off the defender. I was like what we're that come from. He's chasing guys down on the penalty kill and he's playing defense backing and that lifting sticks. I mean it's good to see he is as an NFL player absolutely so next season and again to get back to the point raised about not caring about the draft. See the second line center. We'll know probably probably not baby. I mean who knows but the point is at some point your cupboard overflows. And you've got Turcott joined wind the world. Juniors you've got campari going to the world. Juniors and you still have gave vulgarity jared Anderson Dole and which is Razzoo's Cooper Ari. Alex Turcott Turcott Blake. Lozada have Sam of like at some point. You start treating some of these guys like Brayden Schenn. Who has we saw tonight? He's a very good hockey player. was traded for a better hockey. Yes so look. Whoever they get this year is going to be great? But it doesn't have to be the next connor mcdavid because as we saw the La Kings one not we ZANU not once but twice. And I don't would you say that any with the exception of drew doughty and maybe Jonathan Quick in spurts was anybody on the kings roster in eater of those years the best at their position like in arguably the best of their position I Glenn One person one person okay. Quick no doubt no. He's not on the team anymore. Jessica Lange Yeah okay all right but again. I think you'd have a hard time arguing that anybody was crunch time five like you. You name the situation. He he was money every time. Sure but but golf buddies but but I mean like switching to the regular season the way you know like sl I would make their best player of the decade list right Justin Williams not making that loan. William Hill might not make the hall of fame as absurd statement. Is that right. That's what I mean right because because that's what we're talking about when people quickey then let him like yes in that moment right now in that six week run or whatever it was when he was unbeatable beatable but I still see people saying like you know Long was the best of the decade. And there Terry guys all right. But that's why I'm not not concerned about people if you're worried about getting your connor mcdavid or your Sidney crosby and don't get me wrong if the opportunities there you take it. Yeah but Jonathan Taves right is not the greatest center of all time. Patrick Kane might be one of the greatest wingers. Alzheimer's that's my steam sport. You've got ability so anyway my rambling point on all of that is if all of the guys that the kings already have in the covered aren't tanny good. It doesn't matter who they get in the draft this year right they all the value of has to be good to read has to be good sure already has to be good. Yeah you know your foot would ask anyway. That's why they drafted them where they did though. Still apparently they are good Ozo- and it's just GONNA take time to hope so prove that So we got four around town we gotta get for more. Did I say the goal said the thing we don't gotTa do ten. Let's just dude. Let me find a partner for non-drowsy there. We go find a regular defensive partner. I'd say regular because he's had several partners this year. Oh you know what thank you. Remember how it used to be Muslim Dowdy. It was six and eight six right. Now it's twenty six eight Rowlett's Six eight yeah. Yeah it was fifteen and eight so so I'm afraid I'm Gonna I'm GonNa take your question then shifted just a bit. I'm GonNa say what happens what what happens with Martinez in forward. Because that's those are. Those are good questions. Yeah 'cause forward as an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year but hasn't replayed game. This season didn't Ontario Monotony Answers and Alec Martinez is probably WanNa WanNa know who is more valuable Hammers Foley but at least on the Blue Line if you had to break it down by position the goal the kings have value in goalies. Whether it's quick Hamblur Peterson and one of those guys would bring back a return to fully. I think is probably the most valuable forward as far as trade value and defense is it's Martinez sure so we're going to go ahead and say what's up with Martinez and forward. Let's say the World Juniors is another question just for asking giggles to more what we need to more questions about how the leadership on this team. How about the players who were letters? Okay does that change copay tar wearing see see but Jeff Carter wears a drew doughty whereas in a does that change at all. I'll raise like this. Is the new leadership group because right even though they didn't all wear letters although some of them did at different times magazine. Migra Shire's right Jesse Williams after jared staal right Robin regear. Yeah yeah those guys and some of them were letter. Some of the time in some of them. Do you know Jerome McGinlay yet curve but but the question is like who are the new right. Who are those guys is a leader that he he was actually leader for me was here? Yeah but if in over example if Darrell Evans I don't I have whatever. But if Darrell Evans correct that part of campus success on the line with Wagner and Lescot is that they're all the same age group that he's the the veteran of the group as far as langer and they look up to him and that he helps them then he then that's an important role that he plays dirties which which is role previously has not had to play correct so who who is the new leadership group. I think that's a good. Thank you good question as we got one more we need one more question and I have it for you. All right. What happens with Alex Turcotte? Odu Mean Does Z.. Player not or does he leave college or does he play a sophomore year right Alex. It's her hot. Stay or go all right. I'm not really thrilled with the World Junior. So anyway we got. We need one more I got it. Okay specialties special teams. They've got to get better like they just got to get better. How do they get better? How much things get better because something I mean? Look here's here's you you bring in a free agent Who hasn't played in the League for a couple years and you signed him to here? But here's here's here's the one something that legitimately concerns me obscene about. WHO's oh nothing? But here's one thing that actually legitimately concerns me about the franchise. I can look at the record with coble chuck in the lineup and with Chuck Out of the lineup and I can. I can make up in my head and narrative that says they were bad because is using the lineup. Now I understand that life and hockey is rarely that simple. They're probably a dozen. If not more different contributing factors. One of them was probably that that he is a bad fit for this team but I understand rationally that it's not that simple emotionally. I'm just GonNa look at the numbers and go. He's gone they're better that's it done. Yeah but I understand that. It's more complicated than what I can't do. Even on my knee jerk reaction like emotional reaction thing is. He didn't play on the penalty. Kill and the power play in any any better with him gone so it wasn't his fault that the special teams suck. Yeah I would agree. Wasn't even remotely let me ask you this. If he let's say he wasn't here to start the season Do you think the kings have a better start to the season with you do. Yeah really yep you feel. That's really why I think no matter who was wearing a king's Jersey for the first month of the season it was going to be rocky because you've got a new coach this year last year this year you got a new coach. He got a new system. You got a bunch of new less clear. I don't think they would. I don't think they're contender right. I just I just think the first month of the season was just a carry over. I mean there were. There were incremental improvements. But I mean I've said it before every time. Todd McLellan used the phrase there guys who can't play in this league anymore to me. That was directed. Did it one person. And I don't my dad always has this phrase that he uses the always says if we see it they they have to see it right. Yeah and so one of my concerns. Your Dad's pretty smart. Let's not get crazy but one of my one of my concerns with last season and with the season before it was that when they fired Lombardi and sutter and and. I'm not saying that it was a bad decision although at the time I was curious whether or not it was a bad decision. But when you get when you eliminate somebody somebody with that much power in organization it takes awhile for the organization to realign. Its does I mean anybody who seen the latest star wars movie anyway and so my concern was that for a period of time You had a bunch of players who had more institutional control then the front office right and I think we still are sort of seeing that. I'm not saying that I don't like the line of I follow Copa Tom Brown but I do think it's curious that that line never changes no matter or what no no matter like. That's that line is shuffling right and and other line shuffle. Yes and so. I'm not saying I'm not saying nothing is good or bad. I'm just saying it limits. The flexibility of a franchise trying to learn as much about itself as possible. But you know what we can't hance learn is who does I follow play well with because he's always playing with Khotan round right now. You could argue that that better too key. You know what I mean like better better to not upset your franchise players because it's not just Gobert are doesn't Brown's worn a king sweater for more games than anybody else and I just heard on kings of the podcast gas. Recently that the two of them are about to become the third. Most games played any two players in insane teams letters. I mean that's that's not insignificant insignificant but like I said I think that there are even get on this. You asked me if I thought they would do better without cold Turkey so my point is I think that last season in the year before that the organization needed they needed to wrest control back from the players and that's not a criticism of the players. I think that's how organizations have to be. You're the power has to rest in the front office right. If you're going to make decisions that need to be made correct end so todd McLellan. We talked about this in the off-season giving him a five year. Your deal giving him as much money as they did. That was a huge way symbolically and and real and and real tangible yeah of of the giving power to the coaching staff taking a back from the player and one of the things that Todd McLellan has done is wheeled really the only weapon that a coach has which is playing on ice time. Yup and I have to believe that's odd. McClellan was the one who said this. This guy stinks. We're not playing anymore like I can't I can't do it right like it's a nightmare doesn't work. Just the nightmares work and like I said it becomes an issue of flexibility if I follow Copenhagen Brown aren't going to be split up and you can't play coble chuck with Carter and you can't play talk with the Foley and you can't plan with Kemp will wear to your plan or where to slot in. Yeah right now. Your options are limiting. Hide a huge defensive. Live play defense now. So you're not putting Guinea Guinea play like a well maybe seventeen and eight. So that's I mean honestly that's and like I said to my dad on a reason episode like I. I believe in coincidences. But I don't believe in eighty one games of this team is awful awful like literally just awful with him in the lineup. Right yeah and take them out and they're like five hundred and again it. There are flaws on this team. That don't have anything to do with Ilia. Cobblestones right. There are. Players need wasn't helping matter he was not how he was hurt. Yeah and and to your point about trying hard and everything. I said it before the earlier this season. If you have six guys on your tug a rope team two of them were pulling as hard as they can in the wrong direction and it doesn't matter how good they Dr. I'm winning. Yeah like just not. Yeah but like I said the special teams. They can't campaign that on him camping. Not on him at all no now. 'CAUSE powerplay has not improved with him out of the line around the penalty kill has only marginally improved. He didn't play on the penalty. Kill anyway so as a lot of rambling. 'cause we okay. So here's ten questions new questions for the second apple boy What is the ceiling for the Wagner? Lozada can't pay line. Are they a third line. You know a good third line on a bad team or can they actually be a good third line on a good day. is good. Just good velocity. Okay what happens with the Golden Triangle which drew doughty arena get. Yup what's the end of the Tyler. Toffoli story who is the second line. What Martinez forward which one stays which one goes or do they both go How do we fix the special teams? Will Alex Turcott play a game in Kings Jersey this season season. And who is the new leadership. I those are good questions are better than the first questions. Those first ten questions were pretty darn good. They were easy really was awful. But I mean when your team finishes second last Zach Zach. I like all right. These are these are more nuanced for a more nuanced the era. Yeah Anyway Jesse you can hear me on various radio stations nations on Christmas I'll be I'll be working on the radio and I'll be spending some time with family and That's about it pretty pretty low key Christmas but you. I'm I am flying to South Carolina. Oh look at you. World Traveler will stay domestic. Yeah stay outside are you. But I'm going to go out to see my dad my Dad Smart Dad and you know and am I stand Lomb and my sister okay. So we're seeing that. Just incidentally I looked up the special teams numbers since Kovalchuk has been out of the lineup. The power play at fifteen percent. The penalty killed seventy six so slightly better but not really and because he didn't play on battery. Yeah I WANNA South Carolina. I'm going to be attending E. C. H. L. Hockey game. Who are you going to see the stingrays versus whoever the Atlanta team is I forget? Now The gladiators that sounds right and the stingrays are the Washington capitals. He C. H. L. affiliate.

Best Game Ever Last Week

"In this episode of thirty one thoughts. The podcast is in memory of brian. Frazier a great hockey fan. We were all lucky to have and many call. The friend thirteen goals a wild night jordan. Bennington goes banana sandwich against the san jose sharks and the saint louis. Blues elliott friedman win thriller in one of the best games of the season. It was unbelievable watching the start of the third period. Four four interference penalty on dube. Nick should be won't be putting nearly gave up the back behind. The net goaltender gets into road by sticking his buddy like that. You've got to put the in here. He's got a though five five front by letter. The shot star bank getting the past. John leonard shirt check tied it up five and the wildest continues at six six meets back harare about a point sharks threatening here. It's burnt over to the bank. Back to ferraro outta burns. He throws it toward the star star. Logie just chip that were shot at this game. Six six out say and then the winning goal later. Oh my goodness gracious way. There's one way to keep me up when it's forty five and nine this game like this six for the blues. Six for the sharks sharks event. Four different one-goal leads to different one goal league gold center the whole time for san jose blue sky. It's six dalla. Tuck city saint louis. Blues are back on top. Twelve forty six to go in the third. The was seven this sharks with six. It's a shootout out in the west tonight. Wow this is gotta be a record. For how many goals golick can let up and still not get hold. It gave david dooby seventh goal. He's lit up on twenty five shots. And i still don't think he's gonna get pulled. It was like watching an old cash register. light up. it would just flat out fun. And i know we've spent some time last week talking about the san jose sharks and thanks. Everyone who who listened to mario ferraro interviewing tweeted in Or texted or de emden about it So i wanna spend a little bit of time talking about saint louis and as fate would have it. These who teams met on saturday night and it was a glorious game ripped out of the pages of an entirely different era of the nhl one that had goals by the handful and goals. Snap in a little bit. What did you make before we get into the game and the saint louis blues year. What did you make of jordan bennington going after anyone that was standing around a san jose jersey fitting went over to their bench. Something was set there and he went right over and gave simic one and now he's gonna go by their player showing some feistiness as he always does now. He's going to go with david. Duke here we go so fired up. Any kid is lifted here live when he's going to the bench after being pulled now kind of stops by. You could see you're going by and then someone wants to set something. Obviously and then he somebody on the back says something but he gives a pond a little. Bit of a nudge right there now. He's going by. And i think this was carlson. There gives them a little fake blocker. Never there and now. He's looking over at duke nicosia yet. You wanna go. Let's go then gives him a little swot linesmen gate in their show. Some fire that kid. This is not the first time this has happened with jordan bennington. He has a fuse. And you know. What did we learn about him. A couple of years ago we learned that this is a guy who marches to his own drummer. This is a guy who argued with martin brodeur about his place in the game. This is a guy who believed in himself when his own organization really wasn't sure it believed in him. And this guy with a fuse and you go back to april two thousand and eighteen. He was actually on loan to the bruins team in providence. Yep and in a playoff series as he's skating off the ice he punches denic martell at the end of the first period in gestures at the fans then a few months later. He's playing for san antonio and while they're getting blown out by the texas stars. He slashed joe less barabbas. He was ojected and then threatened to fight the entire texas bench. You know this is the way. He is wired. This is who jordan. Winnington can be from time to time and i guess he was just incredibly frustrated with the way he was playing. You know but we've seen this before jeff. He's going to have these moments from time to time. He's got a lot of hextall in him. He's got a lot of hextall in and in that he is an elite level goaltender allah ron hextall specifically in nineteen eighty seven. To which i believe you are referring. That game was flat out fund. We mentioned the san jose sharks last week. I did wanna park some time talking about the blues. Let's get there now. Well first of all we should mention that doug armstrong has made it very clear that he's going to extend jordan bennington right now until it's done it's not done but i don't think that's gonna change the blues minds on him at all. People are wondering okay to the blues. Not like this. I don't think that's got anything to do with it. And i'll tell you something else. I think devon dube. Nick wanted to fight him. of course he did. that's why he came out. He just saw to go after two of his own players including eric. Carlson and dubna comes out. He's the new goaltender or a great way to ingratiate yourself with your new team. Plus you know do vickers flato bigger than jordan banning meetings in his to So that added some spice to it as well. I thought dubna quantity go as well. I thought for sure he wanted to fight him. So i was on radio in saint louis on day with andy strickland. Our good friend and strick asked me said you know how in canada do you guys see the saint louis blues and i said why still looking at me like a real good team you know. They've been plagued by injuries. Low vladimir tarasenko is on his way back sooner than later. We'll get there in a second but to me. They're sort of one step beneath a gala stanley cup contender. Right now Like i'll look at you know tampa a look at boston. Throw washington into that mix. Certainly vegas Is in that conversation but to me. They look like one that at that. Second stanley cup tier. How do you see the saint louis. Blues right now. The one that really makes me concerns the injured. Paret go right. Yeah and now. He's playing injured. The last couple of weeks like a lot of guys going out of that lineup could really hurt them. You know riley being one there. Obviously tarasenko is a lethal score and he played extremely well when they won the cup. Falk has been fantastic. He's kind of rejuvenate his career. But i think perico is the guy of all their skaters. If you lose perico you lose. A i think the team really changes right with parade. Go now being out. If we don't know exactly what that is or what the timeline is. I would be concerned about saint louis ability to win and you know what whenever it's a back injury because as you've seen before back injuries can really be in a 'nigma when it comes to diagnosing or putting timelines and it can instantly change the minute you step out of bed. You could feel great when you go to bed one day and step out of bed the next morning and all of a sudden oh what i thought was going to be two weeks now. Maybe turning into two months so that would be my concern. I just look at saint louis. And i say man. The injury bug hit them hard like they have a lot of like legit high-end nhl players on the shelf or in the case of you know alexander steen retired. The gunnison injury was a tough one to watch mentioned that vlad terasenko is on his way back. I thought robert. Thomas was poised to have a breakout season. I i think that one of the things you know. You always want your young players to pop and sorta come out of nowhere and grab a top spot and for the saint louis. Blues jordan cairo. He's been that guy if you look at five on five points per sixty. He's right up to the last time i checked. He was sixth in the league. Like the saint louis blues when they won the stanley cup. No one would ever accuse them of being the fastest team in the nhl much like the los angeles kings when they won their stanley cups. No whatever accused him of being a fast team. This was a very deliberate heavy checking team. That had good goaltending and got great performances and ryan o'reilly was outstanding and that was one of the the major parts of the recipe. The winning who then winning the stanley cup but the minute. The jordan kyros stepped on the ice all of a sudden. They had a speed factor. They had a burner. You know like when who would it have been maybe adrian campaign started with the los angeles kings all of the sudden that slow team just got faster Does it not feel jordan. Cairo has the exact same effect with the saint louis. Blues like all of a sudden boom steps on the ice. And ooh that's a dimension this team hasn't had that's why i'm curious to see when he starts to get more time. Yes he's right around fifteen minutes. Now you're going to make me do actual research. Aren't you all right fine. By the way. I have to say this every game. Craig baru bay. Looks like he wants to murder an official kind like when he played it kind of like when when he played. Yes a guy white like. I don't know if you watch the end of that. San jose saint louis game i did. Those are great game for those views watch. There was a face off with two point. Four seconds left and they drop the puck in saint. Louis won the draw but didn't score and san. Jose thought they won the game. And the referees blew dad and they said no we gotta do it again and and baru just looked like he wanted to jump on the ice and strangles somebody. I have to say this. The whole saint louis team this year. They've had moments this year. And i've heard about it on the ice and just the looks and baruba is kind of alluded to it couple times in some of his zoom calls. They don't like the way they're games get called. Why do you think that is initially. I heard it was. They thought it was too ticky tack uh-huh and then i heard later. It almost became like it went the opposite way and apparently the blues are like just let us play. Okay just let us play the game. This is probably for a deeper conversation will have a different time. But it's not true of every team in the nhl right now. I don't know that guy. I've heard it with them in particular by the way. You're right of a cairo fifteen. Oh three boom. You were three seconds off. Jeff that's just terrible. You should be embarrassed. But i didn't go over on the prices right in closest without going over says bob barker drew carey. But he's third on the team with points eighteen. He's having a hell of a season of fantastic young hockey player on that will kick it off because we have a lot to get to today including your questions at hashtag. Ask thirty one and an interview with andrew parrott defenseman for the own sound attack of the. Oh l. on what. It's like being a player with no lee. This is thirty. One thoughts podcast presented by the gmc. Sierra eighteenth four. Welcome to the podcast. Once again to kick off your week we thank you for joining us and appreciate the download promised couple of thirty one one lead with one today because at this point in the season where the stress can be overwhelming for a lot of teams. Brian tiberg asks this one. What team or teams are most in. Need of a fridge turtleneck moment a breath of fresh shares. Something different something to loosen things up a little bits who needs a little some different breath of fresh air right now around the nhl fridge. Maybe much calgary and vancouver in the canadian division. I would say columbus who five in a row. Ouch dallas really tough. Really tough just everything. They've gone through only sixteen games and the schedule that they're going to have to play to make it up. And then i think buffalo would probably be the last one anaheim had a really rough week two yup how like arizona. They fall behind three nothing. They win the first time they fall behind three nothing. They win the second time. I felt so an ant colorado. There fall down three nothing and get within three two in the last minute but they couldn't tie it and then colorado just said enough of this beat them six to one saturday really really rough week for anaheim. How'd you like that nathan mackinnon goal by the way. Speaking of the saturday holy smokes makes me come aboard and beat. Here's a shot from mckinnon. A cannon scars a quick strike from the cobra and nathan mackinnon will work. I don't care who you are. Nobody stopping that and the avalanche lead one. Nothing on those shoulders up to mac attack. Here's what i what. I love about mckinnon. It's like every now and then he just reminds everybody. You know like you'll fall out of the conversation around. The top player in the game is flavor of the month and someday is awesome matthews for a while and it's connor mcdavid and other players are making noise and then nathan mackinnon does something like that just to remind everybody it seems like like. Hey over here i'm in the conversation. Might just be number one. Well one thing. I do believe jefferson is i do think this whole conversation about the voting is about is a lot about nathan mackinnon in what sense while just the he's not going to get enough love because mcdavid matthews are getting so much attention and you'll normally there's more american base voters than there are canadian base voters by a slight amount. I think i figured out last week. I think it was like eighty two or something like that. But when you separating them into divisions all of a sudden you've got a lot more canadian voters in their division than any other division and a couple of cases including the one colorado's in it. It's kind of lopsided. I do think that that's what a lot of this is about. Is you know nathan mackinnon. Getting his do. I do have to say this. I think mcdavid has been royally in hard voting. But you know i. I think you could make a real argument. That mckinnon has to not to the same level. But it's there and you know. I know that some of the people that have raised the issue about the voting this year. Mckinnon is the guy that they're kind of talking about we pause for a second here elliott and just bathe in the glory. That was just the visuals of minnesota in los angeles on saturday night. Oh beautiful house spectacular. Did that look the green with the yellow with the purple like it was beautiful on saturday nights like to the point where. I didn't even mind that the ice was white. That's how gorges thought the whole thing. I was gonna wonder when i was waiting for that. No those jerseys between the wild and the kings. They were spectacular. And you know what that was a fun game to yup. That was a wonderful game and that was that was a listen a good los angeles kings team. That's played really well lately and minnesota wild squad. Now and congratulations mad dumb but those a real nice move and overtime to end it. Carello for green on the left wing over now zuccarello. This two seconds left. The massive story has expired the while it overtime word. county bob. You're on the flag was narrowing down and you can see dumb. Just jumping in there and makes a little move to us left and goes he stuffs it in and the kids have bench a minnesota wild team now that we should probably park sometime. Maybe even on the podcast later on this week to do something deeper on the minnesota wild won six games in a row. Yup and they're now in second spot in the west and dare. I say i don't know if i've said this since doug rise bra was a general manager are the minnesota wild. Actually fun to watch now. I think they're pretty entertaining. I didn't know if i saw this coming this quickly. I don't even think necessarily they were always necessarily so stale on the ice. I thought they might have been a little bit stale off at two. And i do think that bill garin his made has at least set off a bit of a grenade in there. It's shaken some people out of their comfort zone and capris off has breathed new life into the franchise and the new t shirts. Dollar bill correal. They're so good. Sign me up. i'll take them. Gimme gimme a dozen Those are fantastic. It was like what ovechkin started with the washington capitals and there was hockey joy that sort of breathe life into the organization. Are you getting the same thing with capris often all note. No question about it. He brought a new energy. And you know the new energy was supposed to come a few years ago when sudan parisi arrived and it did but they just never seem to break through and look that is a brutal division. If on saturday night for a little bit there in terms of points they were number. One until vegas banana hyman overtime and pass them. But if you're gonna go through the playoffs there you're going to have to go through you know two of probably colorado's saint louis and vegas probably right. Yep and that's going to be hard. I think we're all curious to see. Okay seven game series. how did they do. But the fact is capri has breathed new life into them. They're playing really well. I think a lot of curious to see. Well the goaltending hold up and i think the other thing is that guarantees gonna have some tough expansion decisions there while the guy that scored the ot winter's been circled from day. One matt dumbo. What's going on there. i think aaron is approached. It the right way. It's the l'amiral away if you've got time. Use it when you let your expansion decisions overwhelm your hockey decisions. Sometimes you have to do it but it can cause problems. And i think that rather than making a bad trade a rush trade. He's kind of said. I'll push it as long as i can. And i think for this team. That's the right message. You know one of the things that were eh again. Who knows how he would have done. He's only nineteen years old but as we see what capris off able to do with the minnesota wild right now. I find myself watching the minnesota wild and cena myself. If only marco rossi could play this year. Yep just to see you know. I gotta i gotta tell ya to like there were two players came back this weekend. I was really happy to see them. Come back i was really happy to see rasmusen. Crystalline and come back. Yeah and i was really happy to see. Ilya samsonov comeback. Yep same like those guys they really had battles and who knows what the long-term effects are going to be. I mean we just don't know enough. But i thought it was great to see them on the ice and that gives me real hope for for rossi to and what happened. Washington wine and obviously buffalo didn't win but just the fact that risked allied was out there. I didn't watch the game on sunday but saturday. I thought he played pretty hard. It gives me a lot of optimism for rossi. I liked that fingers crossed. We should do something More profound with the minnesota. Maybe later on this week or we should do it soon. Because that's that's becoming a real fun team to watch. If not already a fun team to watch let me hit you with one. More hashtag as thirty one is all drop them in like pepper and parsley in the superior throat. The podcast this to us comes to us from chris. Black if specis fake clapper Is his true signature. Move short look at smith. He bid on that initial shot goes down and ensued. Aspera nosy has right there on his knees. Now it's just to the outside and a perfectly placed shot frustration for the top line as mcdavid slams the door but turnover ends up in the back of the net the other end what are true signature moves and your personal faves new to me. It's easy it's the dominant cash. Roll the hashtag role to me. Every time i see anyone try it and do it automatically. It's just dominic cash to me. The one re rules and he goes over his shoulder that is dom they dominate cash role. That is how. I always whenever i hear the name dominic cash. That's exactly what i think much like. When you see that a fake slapshot gordy right. A little bit and fire past the goaltender. You think jason spencer but the hashtag role to me is it. That's my favorite. Do you have a favorite signature move. I don't know if you'd call it a move but to me. It really captured. Who this player was. I loved patrick. Wa when he winks at thomas sandstrom. Okay maybe you know the answer to this. I should know. And i don't. And i'm embarrassed that i don't who's the camera person that caught it that to me is the real star of that moment. 'cause you know the patrick's done it to other players. Who's the camera person that caught that. It is such a great moment french. It's a great moment in the history of hockey. Should find out. i'll ask. I'll see if i could find. We'd never think about who the camera person was. And that person is the star because they caught it. It's such great camera work and we never consider it for a second. And i've always wondered who that person but i'm with you that wink. Wink is fantastic. The j c tremblay flipping the park. Whenever i see a demand flip it high. Jc tremblay. layered. Jim dorey whose nickname was actually flipper. Because that's what he did. He flipped pox but to me the hashtag role for. I do like your idea though. I'll tell you something. The way matthews is starting to hold his stick. He doesn't move his hands while. Not only that but noticeably holding in midair waiting for the pass right I was a driving through my neighborhood the other day and some kids were playing street hockey and you know as i was driving up i could see one of them. Doing it really eh. Yes i like that. And don't forget you know matthew still young got a long career ahead of can score a lot of goals maybe that becomes a thing are eight. Seven has become a thing around the nhl rate now and we mentioned them earlier is losses in columbus. Yep do you have a thought on. Cbj now dropping five in a row. Specifically the last two to nashville. It's hard not to see something coming here. Is it that obvious. They already made two trades. you know they trade Domi for anderson and the trade Dubois you know a couple weeks ago. When when the lining thing happened there was a theory going around that maybe tortorella wanted to go. The there was a theory that maybe he was even sabotaging himself. Yeah and i know someone who knows them and they said that is just not true. That's just not the way he's wired. I've asked a lot of gm's berkey is one of those guys. I'm gonna leave some other guys away. 'cause they're still working and i said you know when you know when to fire a coach and a lot of them say like your team doesn't push back right I don't know what's going to happen there. And you know caroline has always stood fast tortorella. And i'm not saying that. I know he's thinking about it because i don't know that but i'm looking at this situation and the pushback isn't there right and that's when you wonder if they're thinking about it Mark says this one in cherry. Ask thirty one. What's the view of anthony. Mantha around the league. I know he was discussed previously but do people view as inconsistencies as a product of what he has to work with bracket or dozen or do they view it as an indictment on him ultimately with detroit. Find a market for him. If need be off. Put anthony mantha market. There'd be a lot of teams of lineup. Well the thing is too is signed. Long-term right yeah you. Have you have that locked in like. There's some guys i think that. Like if you put their contract out there and people would say you know what. I'm not doing that. I don't want that term. I don't necessarily think you'd be that way with mantha. Like he just signed a four year deal. As average annual value is five point seven. I think that's the kind of contracts that people are going to bet on because it's his first year he's still pretty young. I mean math is only twenty six. Be twenty seven next september. I don't think people are gonna look at him and say that's a terrible risk that we wouldn't take it Do i think people would like to see more from him from time to time. Yes but i guaranteed you. A lot of people will look players in detroit especially the last couple years where there's been a lot of losing while they rebuild and they'll say i'll take a chance on a guy like that and how he would handle a different or better situation. So do i think people want to see more out of him sometimes. Sure but do i think people out there saying oh look at all these contracts across the league that no one will ever touch him. We're saying that about mantha. no. I don't believe anybody's saying that about him. Okay elliott. did you have any idea how confused hockey fans going to become saturday when you try to explain. Nba top shot to everybody. I will tell you jeff. There was a mix they were either really confused or they really got it. And i have to tell you. It went viral and it went to places that i didn't expect. I knew this one was something. I didn't really understand very well. But i did. A ton of research in it a new there was the potential for it to kinda hit a bit of different audience and it did a one of the people who reached out to me. After i did the head he said to me. I know about this and he set me up with uh some other people who i spoke to for the blog which is coming out tuesday but that person then reach out to me again later on sunday and he said you know i got a lot of people in the hockey world now asking me what is this. What is this about. And i think there's two ways to look at what top shot is and what the technology is and it's blockchain technology know cryptocurrency. That kind of thing and some people out there will instantly know what that is other people out there will need to be explained to them. And you know the world is eventually going to maneuver to the blockchain. It is going to be a huge part of our lives and we all don't know about now but we're all going to have to learn about it but like from a fundamental point of view. Here's the way it could change for example hockey right now. If you're a card collector. Say jeff i have a card for sale yup. I license it from the nhl. I pay the nhl to sell this car now. The moment i sell it to you anything that happens after that the nhl or the players have no share of it. Okay you make all the profit that can change. Under the blockchain there can be a function setup. Where every time. That card is sold the nhl or the players or the alumni who are going to be big and all this get a piece get a piece of it because the program could be set up that way. How's the nba setup. I should explain top. Shot top shot for those of you. Who aren't familiar with it. Is virtual trading cards. You all know the hand-held trading card this is a trading card for a virtual world and the example. I used on hockey night. On saturday was a two thousand. Nineteen lebron james dunk. One of the biggest dunks of his career. So what this company called. It's called dapper lane. They own top shot and they created forty nine virtual highlights of that way and they sold them and one man gobbling jesse. Schwartz was actually born in montreal but lives in los angeles he bought one of those highlights for two hundred eight thousand dollars. He's very confident in his investment. And he's a guy with a good business background he's he's a pretty smart guy so he believes in what he's done and he's a big lebron fan so i think you have the combination of a guy who's a huge lebron james fan and a really smart businessman. He believes in what he's doing but basically the way it works. Jeff is every sale on top shot. The company keeps five percent. What about the players. Well that's what i don't know yet and i'm going to try to find out. But if their licensing it from the nba and the nba players association. You know they're getting a cotton again any cut of and that is the difference the difference now instead of them just getting their percentage. The first time the card is sold. Now you can wire it. So that they get a percentage every time these are called moments by the way these digital highlights are called moments every time the moment is sold they can get it and you know where else this is going to be a factor and this is going to be big for. The nhl is ticketing right now. The ticket is sold for the first time. Jeff you buy a ticket from me the team right i get it so and if you resell that you get everything now you can set up the chain so that every time it's resold you get a piece of it. The team can get a piece of it. The technology is as big as the collection. Okay elliott that to me is more interesting than with all respect buying moments like hockey cars that to me really gets my ears up because and might just be my ignorance and i don't know if this will catch on for hockey pardon me says just because as popular in basketball and it works in basketball or people are invested in this in basketball. Doesn't mean that hockey fans will either. But i understand the nhl would have to at least kick tires on it because that's normal business practice. Hey this is successful in the nba. If you're the nhl you have a responsibility to your league to at least investigate it but the idea of getting a piece of the ticket resale market to me is a whopper that to me gets my ears up elliott. Well there's there's two things about that number one. I understand why you're saying that. But on the other side i can tell you. It's a bit of a pitfall because remember the first time the teams kind of did the resale and people were ripping them because they said why are the teams profiting from this. Yep so you know there will be that issue but the teams will take that. They'll take their criticism to get involved in it. I think that'd be fine. I think that they would say look. We have to get our head out of the sand about this thing. We can't pretend that it doesn't happen. We're just trying to get a piece of it because we understand that it does happen. So you're right jeff. There's the collecting part of it. And there's the technology part of it and i interviewed a couple of people. Who are steve. Dangles set me up with a friend of his. Who will be. It'll be in the blog just talking about getting involved on the collectible side of it. The moments and using it whether it's an investment or a fine kind of thing and then there's the technology which is can the nhl and the players and the alumni because the nba hasn't done alumni yet and you know the nhl will look at it because you know the gretzky moments if you can do them. Those will be huge if you can find a way to make money off them in perpetuity. It's going to be massive. Absolutely i and i would wonder if this would extend further than just the nhl elliott. Like if you're the w. h. f. treasure trove internationally. This isn't just. Nhl moments user will a championship moments. These are olympic moments like while olympics will be ioc hfs will be sitting on a gold mine themselves as well not for the nest if the north american market but i would think of like i always think of the world championships czechoslovakia versus ussr. And what that would mean to a check person. You'll it's very good. You see by the way has a deal with this company right now. Jeff i am not shocked at all and you know the other leagues are coming but the nhl is already started talking to them and with the players association and the alumni. It's going to happen. You can't look at this as a pandemic and say. Wait a sec. They're making this kind of money and the players are really involved. That's the other thing here. You know someone sent me a zoom interview where an nba player was telling the reporters. Hey you guys have to get in on this and the reporters are like we don't make nba player money. We can't afford. I was actually pretty funny. Hey animal how can we get. Thirty one thoughts involved in this We scrape up a couple of dollars any moment from this podcast that anybody wants about anybody wanted to pay for looper zone louis. Yeah it's it's the stuff that ammo has stashed from how we talked before the podcast actually gets going going to sell us out and retired a monaco based on that. This is something elliott. Honestly that i want to regroup on this is something. I want to talk about more. Maybe as early as next podcast. But at a certain point. When i'm when i'm more knowledgeable about it because when you mentioned it my first thought was oh and you. I kind of had that like sewing. Scooby scooby doo moment moment about it. But now that. I think about it more since saturday night and into today's podcast and talk it out and this and that resale ticket idea has has been pretty interested as well. This is something that i'm really interested in just to me is is something profoundly. Different and profoundly new. So let's let's pick up this conversation when i'm a little less ignorant about the whole thing. Sure okay from mike hass. If i'm hired at rogers for the position of junior elliott friedman what does my first day look lake. What's my first assignment if someone gets hired as junior elliott friedman. What's their day. Look like for each. I would i. Would i would say you have to replace. Senior dave amber no. I really have a tough time answering these questions. I really don't think my day is that exciting. There's a lot of checking your phone answering tax making call sending out other tax like a lot of the job. And i'm not trying to make it sound like bad because it's fine and i'm not trying to say make it sound like it's hard because it's not like i'm operating on brains or anything like that but it you it's a lot of grinding right and maybe try not turtlenecks. It's grinding and trying on turtlenecks. I think that's what it is. It's constantly about okay. who can i reach out to. Who can give me a little bit of a morsel of information. That i didn't have before that's basically what it is. And then it's listening to a lot of kevin be exa ripping everything you're doing. That's the fun stuff. He'll when's the last time you had someone yell at you like if someone comes on his junior elliott friedman. What's he or she in store for all last week. Okay there was a big one last week. See i'm not gonna talk here awhile for hopes a you might just say who it is. No no no like like i've said to jefferson. I saved on the podcast. Here's of all heard me occupational hazard if you do this job right and it's going to happen from time to time so make s if your job. Today was to be junior fridge. Part of it would include an interview with andrew. Parrott of the owen sound attack. That's next on thirty. One thoughts the podcast from grill to gate. The gmc sierra at fours biltmore smarter and play harder with the industry. I available carbon-fiber compass pickup bed and a two inch. Factory installed suspension lift. No road is off limits and with the unique jet black interior with kalahari accents. You can drive off road in style. Go beyond where you thought you could with the gmc sierra eighty four okay elliott. We've talked about minor hockey. Let's now talk about junior hockey and specifically the ontario hockey league and one player in particular. He's the son of an ex any chiller. an ex. Oh l. or for that matter as well he is and repair it Whose father nathan played in the nhl and the oh l. He's a defense own. Sound attack right now. He's playing hockey in slovakia because there is no ontario hockey league season comma yet. There are many people. And i'm in that camp. I suspect you might be as well. Who believe there will be some type of. Oh l. season it seems as if the winds are blowing towards a twenty four game Twelve and april twelve and may and then a best two out of three playoff format and that's the season for the. Oh l. but as of right now there is no league. There is no start date. There is nothing other than hope. And that's what andrew parrott has to the point where he wrote a letter and started a petition and got a number of his colleagues in the. Oh l. to sign it just to let various levels of the provincial government in ontario and the ontario hockey league self aware of how they are feeling. Give us your quick thought on this story before we broadcast the interview here with andrew. Perritt i think the we all are hopeful that this is going to happen as you said a bit later on in april and may but i think if your a sixteen to twenty year old young man and especially if you're draft eligible and there is the possibility the draft doesn't get moved. It's very tough to hear. Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait and wait some more while the other two leagues or playing and you know who i really feel bad to all those kids in who play in british columbia whose teams are not able to play right now while the around them is going it's brutal. It sucks like there's no other way to say it and you know i give andrew a lot of credits not easy to stick your neck out there but there's going to be a lot of people who are going to own wine and i hope they pay it back to him. I hear you. this is a A brave move by this young hockey player here is andrew parrott on thirty one thoughts. The podcast enjoy. We're very pleased to be joined by a young man who stayed up very late to accommodate this podcast and we thank him for it. He plays the own sound attack of the oh l. He is andrew parrot who joins us from slovakia andrew before we get to the reason why you're here give us via the story of how you ended up in this cova d- season. How did you end up playing in slovakia soa teammate of mine carter robertson actually came over here so kinda talk to him about it. Got the inside scoop. Text my agent just to see if it was a possibility and he ended up making it work. I'm out here with h. k. martin in the slovak to league and it's been a really good experience so far. How's the hockey. It's a bit different with the wider rank. Obviously but it's it's good now. I know carter and i know his family quite well. How did carter. Fair and slovakia be honest. He fared really well. He did really well over here. E- told me that. He enjoyed his time to in that his team enjoyed them over here too and actually kind of opened a lot of is over here for himself in the future. Jeff you sound like you're like buying that you want a different answer. I'm just waiting for someone to rip torn. Carter like i know him well. I know his parents really well His dad jeff and michelle are are friends of mine. And i was just hoping andrew that you'd rip on them a little bit carter's one of my best friends that'll do. I can do that. I gave it a shot. Oh well over you elliot. So andrew the reason we have you on the podcast. Is you sent out a letter last week up petition. And what the best way to do it is to have you explain it. What exactly did you do. And what were you hoping to accomplish. So i was actually on the phone with a team mate of mine mark willie at the time who was also over here playing vodka and we're just talking about how because we're really good with our teammates and talking back home with them. We were just talking about how guys are struggling and everything. So i kinda just started writing my thoughts and feelings on the paper. Didn't really think anything would come of it and actually showed my mom and a couple of people. I respect very well in the hockey world. They go wow you you actually wrote that very well you should maybe do something with it so kind of just try do express in the best possible way. The feelings i felt just throughout this and not being able to play and express teammates feelings as well kind of get the message out there and So i showed my teammates. I obviously to see what they felt. They felt similar feelings as well and they also agree that i should do something with it. So then i. I i try to just keep it with petition. As players only just to see how many players we could get to sign off on to see if there was a lot of players felt somewhere way. We ended up getting a hundred forty-six players in first twenty four hours which i thought was amazing and the whole point of the letter in my opinion was just to raise the awareness of how important seasons to the players in how much guys have been struggling. Not being able to play and watch other guys play right now and we just wanted to be hurt ourselves because a lot of people are speaking up about how they feel and i thought it was just important that as players not being able to play that we got our own perspectives out there so everyone knew how we felt as well. I know that it's tough for all players. But the one part and i'm really glad you included this because you know in in a lotta ways. This is the group of players that a lot of people feel the most. Sorry for all of this are the over. agers Guys that have played their last game in the. Oh l. if there's not a season at all the idea that you played your last game without knowing it. I'm sure is a tough one. You know there was some thought not that long ago. And i don't know where the conversation went in the league but there are some general managers who have proposed adding another overage year. So won't just be for twenty year olds it'll be for twenty one year olds. I don't know you have three twenty one year olds on your team to complement three twenty year. I'm not sure how they would do it. And i'm not sure that falls. But but i'm really glad that you included them because that's generally a group that people don't about enough. I don't think and we don't hear about enough. So i know a lot of people that that read your letter and saw your petition. Felt particularly strong about you. Know the fact you included the as. Yeah obviously i've carter robertson as a really close friend of mine too. And i talked to him a lot all the time and he was expressing how he felt as an overage. 'cause he was saying a lot of guys get contracts there over eight years whether it's american league. Nhl on you look at guys. Just last year and early on my team brady. Lyle had an exceptional year. Gone overage contract with providence. He's doing really well over there. Noel hoffmeyer obviously had a tremendous season for the sixty seven's got contract like the list probably goes on with the amount of guys to get contracts out of years just because they show that step that growth that they took from their fourth fifth year and teams are willing to take them after that. What about the reaction surprised you. If anything a lot of the that have thanked me for to be honest like it's nice to get the thanks for doing it and seeing the thank yous but it's also struggle at the same time because i'm getting the thank yous because they are struggling and because it is hard on them and they felt the same way so it was kind of nice to get those. Thank yous in see that. Everyone else was very appreciative of the ladder. And there wasn't anyone that thought negatively or why did he put that out there or anything like that. So that's been nice. Do you think it moves the needle at the end. Do you think it will contribute to something happening for the antero players. I believe it will. I believe that since as a group of players we got our own perspectives in our own thoughts out there. Now there's been a little bit of while The players are struggling and now we know how they feel in. There isn't a season like what will happen to us. How many guys just quit hockey. How many guys careers are just over. Because this important season. And i think it does move the needle a little bit to push the agenda on having a season this year. Now putting together a A a junior hockey season and we saw negotiations in the quebec league Most recently of course the western hockey league be still hasn't come on board and you know there's a a similar petition going around right now. British columbia about the junior loop and also The tier to loop the cj gel all. These negotiations are very sensitive. The junior hockey leagues in concert with various provinces and so he can understand the sensitivity around all of the all the negotiations. I'm sure but having said that as a player do you feel that there's been too much secrecy around all of it and you're not being kept informed enough A little sometimes. It'd be nice to hear maybe like once a week especially as a player just if negotiations are going well or not because at one point. I think there was a time where we didn't hear anything for a very long while in when you don't hear anything for a while you kind of lose motivation in that process like a lot of guys. I've talked to in actually very proud here are like finding incredible ways to get training and and it's honestly been a year of craziness with guys are telling themselves finding ways to train and things with people freezing weights when the winter lifting and whatnot. It's just crazy and for us players. A lot of our offseason is still a lot of training in no off days. Rarely so lot of guys really want that to go towards a season because that's what we train for and worked for everyday. Now i saw the dave branch The commissioner of the interior league released a statement. Did he speak to you at all. Personally did you have any contact with him. No i have not okay. But i sent the letter and petition to him directly. As i did with lisa macleod and doug ford before posting to social media. Did you hear anything from the provincial. Government did not. I just would say andrew one of the things. I think that happens here and jeff can speak to this from his own experience. Jeff reported that the western hockey league how to deal with the province of saskatchewan and the whol was none too pleased with mr merrick when that news got out which turned out to be true. Because i think these leagues are terrified of angering the governments in any kind of way because if they do that then they could lose the chance of having any games. So i do think that plays a role in this now. We've heard that there might be twenty four games over april and may have. Have you heard that has that been communicated to you at all. I've heard it but it's all kind of in hopes right now. I've heard it. But obviously i don't think anything sentenced until comes from the league directly. 'cause i hear new. Every day is a lot of rumors flying around on what's going on. What not the one thing that i can tell you about the aged off. What i've heard is every meeting that dave branches in the focus is on playing this season having some type of season like we've all heard You know various proposals or ideas. I think the one that eliot mentions is probably The one that it's most likely to land on twenty four games however two months two out of three playoffs and and that's the season but perhaps the fact that it's the beginning of march and they haven't shut down season. Does that give you any sense of optimism that they are at least trying to put something together or else it will have thrown in the towel along time ago. Yeah still gives me optimism that It hasn't been completed yet. I actually just saw interview with david. Brancheau he did with kitchener station. I think and he said something about. They haven't even thought about anything about next year. Which also makes me very optimistic showing that he hasn't even thought about anything share all his focus has been on getting something done this year. Which shows that they haven't thrown in the towel yet because if they have they would have already started plans for next season. That is entirely consistent with everything that i've heard from people that have been in those meetings. The entire focuses on this season. And that's it that's been the main thing. Yeah that's obviously relieving the heroes. A player and i think a lot of players that listen to this will be really relieved to hear that because a lot of us are really hopeful. First season the sharing get back on the ice. The quebec league is played for most of the year. They took a two month. Break the western hockey league just played last weekend. They started up an all in everywhere. Basically except british columbia. Now what's been your reaction to watching all that for me. Personally it's been kinda tough Playing meaningful hockey. I am on the ice everyday. i'm in practices. I'm in a controlled environment. I have my routine back a little bit. But i'm talking to my teammates every day and just speaking to them. They are really struggling. Seeing guys playing getting that tracks for the draft getting noticed by nhl scouts because at the end of day. That's a lot of guys. Goals is getting the nhl and playing professional hockey in some sort of way so a lot of guys are just kind of losing their minds. A home like oh. This guy's jumped so and so up the boards or whatnot while he can't really do anything about it 'cause he's not playing so i know that's been tough on guys what's been the toughest part for you specifically like you say you can live as many ways as you want in the garage You can you know cobbled together. Whatever type of ice time you can you can use whatever training aids you want. Nothing replicates a game we all know that That affects you physically. And it does affect elite level players and the only charleston lately that affects those players mentally who have grown up. Only knowing one way to live you wake up and your day days in front of you and it's that routine what's been the most challenging for you andrew. So at the beginning of kind of the offseason when they came out with their first state. A lot of guys also do this. I know further offseason regiment. You kind of have a that. Offseason plan that you follow and towards the end of it you really start to you grind you everyday is a bagger you're getting your cardio in you're doing as much as possible so we had our set date. I know for me personally. I was doing so much salt by so much of everything. Just heavy faster harder like i was in the best shape. I've been in my life to this point. I think i had the bus offseason. I've had to this point and then it got pushed back again so it was like. Oh god yeah just like telling yourself now you gotta start from the beginning where you kind of get warmed up and then you push it again and you're like oh my god. Those salt by your comment are gonna come back. So you're just like oh my god you're kinda like battling with that a little bit and now after a couple of pushbacks you're like oh my god. Am i even going to play this year. So i know before i even came out the vox was like. Oh my god like am. I ain't gonna play meaningful hockey this year and i'm going to gym every day and i'm i'm doing thirty minutes of the salt lake. I'm like oh. My god. I if i can do this anymore i know. A lot of guys felt the same way with Their off-season regimen to because a lot of guys have that similar plan. I think we're both wishing you good luck. Is there anything else you'd want to add or anything else you'd wanna say nothing. Really kinda. just hope everyone can get back to their normal regiments because actually since i posted social media i've had coaches and staff members around the league. Also say it's tough on. It's not just players. Everyone like a lot of trainers are also struggling. A lot of coaches are also struggling because those daily routines. There used to at this point. So i can just hope everyone can get back to that regiment and the daily routine that they're used to because those are memories that are made for a lifetime and you never forget them. Andrew you may not feel this way but what you did is pretty indicative of the person that you are. There are a lot of hockey players that would say you know what is just my job to play hockey and just got to be ready and damaged. I'm going to get back on the assault by a damn it. I'm going to do a million burke's and yeah. I'm back in the squad rack every day. And i'm doing sprints and you know whenever i get the tap on the shoulder. We're going back to hockey. But to take the initiative to put something like the letter and the petition together and then to send it to the right provincial representatives state initiative to send it to david branch To make yourself public to make yourself available for podcasts. Like this at one o'clock in the morning slovakia. I think it really does say a lot about you like i. I know you might not feel. But i think you should really feel proud of yourself and i don't mean this as an insult to hockey players. You did appreciate that. It's not an insult to hockey players. But like you've done more than than most hockey players would. It's actually funny. I i was a little bit nervous to To do this. Obviously putting yourself out there in any type of situation like this is nervous for anyone but a really close friend of mine. Actually that i trained with a little. Bit is a curtis gabriel. And it's actually a funny story. Our relationship goes back a little bit. Dad coached him when he was in own sound. So he's known me. Since i was little my first year the nights i trained in london that summer and he was also there. We ran into each others. You are you nathan paris on. I was like yeah. Yeah and ever. Since that point he kind of has like taking me under his wing a little bit. So i've just seen how hard he works and then obviously How much he puts himself out there with everything. And it's just kinda rubbed off on me a little bit just to see how much of an impact he's had on people's lives so obviously i didn't do it to that scale. I think he's got a little bit more impact than i do. But i was just trying to help in any way possible while you mentioned your dad there a second ago i want to ask you. You're both you and your father played in the. Oh l. and. I used to go to oshawa aussie watch his nhl career. I can recall going to oshawa every sunday To watch your dad play for the generals. Marc savard was on that team. Jeff where was the first round pick Yon where i think when to edmonson was on that deal go really good oshawa generals team and i mean. Your dad was a robust hockey player. How much would you talk to your dad about his days in the oh l. I talked to him all time about it. He's got some funny stories. A lot of his are. You would never see now. Nowadays in the game like getting like three or four fights in the game ten guys suspended and you have to play with like seven guys on the bench like stuff like that. I remember talking to your dad after one of the games and all he kept saying it was. Marc savard keeps poking guys behind the knees. And i gotta go and fight for him. I'm gonna beat them up feed us. I don't think he might do that though. Because staying on the line with marc savard was pretty Pretty nice. I think that season to my dad had like a i think he's scored thirty goals. That your yep. He's a good player. Who is a good player. He was willing to stick up for mark as long as you could. Stay on the same line. As i'm riding shotgun with marc savard at that time in the h. l. Who might have been the best player in the league. Yeah that's That's quite a feather in that. Okay you're released. You can go to sleep now andrew. Thanks so much for stopping. By and congratulations on the letter and the petition. This has been a lot of fun. Catching up thank you for having me means a lot so usually at this time of the year david. We're all talking about teams jockeying for position. The playoffs coming the excitement of course of building towards that memorial cup. And it's it's much different now as we still battle through this covid nineteen pandemic. We've seen the quebec league Do kind of stop and start. But it's got some games under its gates the the league is talking about getting going the scuttle but we're hearing around the ontario hockey league is something in the way of twenty twenty four games. Maybe in april and may where are we at right now with any prospect of getting on the ice for meaningful. We've done a lot of boggling. Kerber burrell looks after shedding purposes for us is done over forty different schedule models as an example. And we recognize that you know as the plot checks of you won't be able to play the desired number that we wish to heal was too but we haven't set anything in stone because we wanna make sure we get across the finish line with You know public health And save barbara bush the return and of course the government itself so We don't have any curve yet. Obviously we're going to be ready to go for the moment we find out. I'm and that's andrew perez defensemen for the owen. Sound attack fingers crossed. He's playing hockey sooner than later. as we conclude this of thirty one thousand podcast wanted to mention bob ridley who just called his four thousand. Th game for the medicine hat tigers also over the course of his career of the legendary story drove the buses. Well you know we think of broadcasters that have had longevity either in junior hockey or minor hockey we think of bob chase to the fort wayne comets Who games for sixty three years Just wanted to pass on a big thumbs up and a shot in the arm and wanted to acknowledge and respect. The work of bob ridley one of the great hockey callers and the entire c. h. l. calling game number four thousand by the way There was a time was well in the pioneer league. He called Medicine hat as in blue jays games and yes much like he did with the medicine hat. Tigers also meanwhile congratulations. Bob looks great on so in that.

Let's talk it over with jeremy rutherford of the athletic and remember to get those subscriptions to follow jeremy and he is covering the saint louis blues day in and day out and jeremy always great to hear your voice. How are things going. Good to be here dan. Yeah we finally have first day of camp on the ice. Last time we saw these blues in the bubble in edmonton obviously a disappointing. Finish that six game series loss to vancouver in the first round but a lot of changes to talk about a lot of excitement and looking forward to get going. What do you think of just the season in general and how this is going to work with protocols how they've set up the scheduled testing for covid all those things. How how do you think this is. Set up for the nhl. Well they're doing the best they can dan but this is going to be a lot different than the public success. They had an attend toronto. that was sealed. The players did not leave the bubble We know that they thankfully had zero positive tests. Neither bubble the entire time quite a success story or the nhl. But this is different. The players balked at Going back to a a bubble situation and so what we're going to have is Teams playing in their home cities. And they've set up. The schedule is such where you're gonna go to. La you're go to anaheim. You're going to go to san jose just like you did before you're gonna play two games against those teams and you know it just to retract part of that San jose not the sharks play home. They're so they're still looking for a home but the point being you're gonna go to these cities and play multiple games. They're trying to cut down on the The health concern that way in terms of the blues. Coming off the bubble. They weren't very good there including goaltender jordan bennington more on him in a moment but just the blues getting the rust off. Really for the entire. Nhl even for teams at weren't in the bubble but for the blue specifically. How do you think that translate in translates into a very quick training camp and then a drop of the puck against colorado on the opening night. Yeah i think they realize now that they just weren't prepared for the bubble. They wanted to get to their game quickly but they just kind of took that whole build up to the bubble cana casually like we'll be able to turn the switch and they never did and i think they found themselves down against a good thing couvert team and then the just couldn't recover but i think they've turned that page and the biggest thing is. This team is so different. I think if you're bringing back that entire roster and and maybe some hangover because face it you're going to be playing empty arenas still in. The blues admitted that that was tough for them. So i think if you had that exact same roster back you'd probably reassemble here and say gosh. Last time we were all together. That was tough. We're gonna have to to play a lot better but you look at this roster and a lot of new faces. We're going to see mike hoffman. We're gonna see the crew. We're going to see some Fresh rookies coming into To the the lineup. I think you look at jordan tyrod. Maybe he some more time. Robert thomas in top six billion usos going to be the backup goalie. A new captain with ryan o'reilly sudan. We're going to see a completely different makeup. And i think it's gonna make it a lot easier for this blue team. Turn the page. So they lose petro but they pick up krueg. you also add hopping. I would assume that really really helps you power play it really does this power play is going to be fun to watch and let's keep in mind that they were number three in league. Last year that was under marc savard. He's assistant coach was in charge of the power. Play a lot of success. It was fun to watch marks hard leaves after one year with blues. Jim montgomery comes in the former dallas. Coach he's gonna be in charge of this power plant while armstrong signed him. Some tools by coffey went forth in the nhl in power play goals at believe. It's the last four years and tori crew. The past couple of years is number among all defenseman with power play goal. So he's been a terrific in boston. Of course lose got to see that during the stanley cup final. So he's going to have a lot of weapons the question. I have enough pox to go around. It's a good thing that Vladimir tarasenko is gonna miss. You don't look at it like that but flavor tarasenko is out there. He wants to power play. What's the puck It's gonna be tough with all the shooter's lose. Have jeremy rather for the atlantic. Is my guest turning the page on petro. What do you think that's going to be like a new captain. Obviously a guy that logged a ton of minutes in different situations but just turning the page in general. Well i thought you know if you lost alex betraying slow. That was going to leave some sort of shock throughout the first couple of weeks months of the season i really did but we all know what kind of leader ryan o'reilly is so. I think i talked to craig ruby a couple of days ago. Dan and he broke it down into two parts. He said that's with alex. On the ice they bring in tory kirk and he's not the same type of player but he can provide you that offense so they feel like tori groups can help fill the void with Outfit change will leave and in that aspect and then with the leadership group. Alex patrols bennett. Great captain we saw what he did that. Second half of that stanley cup season helping steer that ship after being in last place in league but riley has been looked at as a guy who could wear the c. Since he's been here in saint louis he's going to have good leadership with and shan with colton perico and so i think the blues at least according to craig pike ruby feel that they can fill that void. What kind of player is to recruit in your opinion. His terrific Phenomenal offensively is exactly what you want. Today's nhl He's undersized so that kind of forces his hand in terms of being a guy who can jump up in the rush those passes but then strike like he's got a great shot and he can play physical even though he's an undersized guy and the dan. I talked to a couple. Nhl coaches for a piece a week or two ago at the athletic. All of them said tori group underrated. Defensively there's so much focus on his lack of size that you just don't give them enough when you're watching them play defense. If a larger defense makes a mistake you say all he made a mistake to recruit bakes it. You say it's because of his size he might not be a top era guy who can play twenty five minutes a night but he's a guy who can definitely give you top four minutes. Lot of focus always on the goaltender. But in particular jordan bennington who did not play well in the bubble but prior to that was having a good season so he's in the final year of his contract. This a big year for him isn't it it. Is you know after that stanley cup There was a lot of debate. What he signed a long-term dealer would they go short terms and they didn't necessarily talk about that long term. They decided to go with the two years. This'll be the second year of that contract for jordan bennington and i wouldn't say that he has a lot to prove because He wasn't good goalie last year. Thirty wins one of all three goals in the league that had thirty wednesday but in terms of having the spotlight solely on him. There's no jake allen back them up anymore. I felt like Jake coming in last year did a phenomenal job. Just holding things together. When jordan was playing great. Will dixon montreal now. After the trade and the backups. Villy you so. He's dressed up for fifteen games in the nhl as a backup he's never played. He's a fourth round draft pick. Who's a good prospect. But we're going to have to wait to see until he gets in here. But even if you're a talented jordan bennington it always helps to have somebody behind you pushing it and we don't know about bill yet so we'll have to see but a contract year for earned bennington fifty six game season. He's going to have to carry the load in terms of how they you know with the schedule. Condensed a lot of games in a short amount of time in how they approach using these goaltenders it's not the days of grant fuhr playing every game which reportedly saw him play every game So how how do you think they approach using the goaltenders in in terms of you know three of four four out of five those kind of things. yeah. I talked to craig ruby about that just a couple of days ago. Dan and he said that the early part of the season just going to be a feeling out process remember. They have ten sets of back to back throughout the regular season. So they said the craig ruby said what they'll do is it'll be a feeling out presser early on in terms of bidding probably the bulk. Spot start billy hugh so what he's like but then at some point they're going to get to a situation where they map it out. And that's typically what they do. When they have to veteran netminders. Like bennington and jake allen cut map it out a couple of weeks in advance other not there yet with who so they wanna see how he looks early on before they get to that stage of the athletic my guest the blues starting training camp. And i wanna ask you about ryan reilly getting the see a loved his comments Saying hey this is a new role for me new way to look at leadership your approach on on. What you've seen with ryan riley is is now the captain of the blues rhino riley. To me the guy who was basically born to do this. And i know that He's been with a couple of other teams. Were probably that leadership was in question. Arena rally in fact in buffalo talked about losing his passion for the game. You know people might here by comments and think. How is that a born leader. But this is a guy who ever. Since i saw him show up in a blues uniform has done everything he can on the ice off the ice taken younger players under his wing. I've seen a lot of things behind the scenes. That are just too many to go into detail with each of but a guy who doesn't mind taking the extra time to to show everybody the right way to do things and i think that's exactly what the blue's looking for. Doug has made the comment when you worry about the team or than yourself. That's who they want wearing. The rhino riley is completely deserving of this honor in terms of just a player. Gimme a player that you're excited to watch. Come out of this little camp and maybe the start of the season has a different role and you think in a merge. Is there a player that you're kind of targeting that you really wanna see well the one that comes to mind right off. The top here is is robert. Thomason always been around three seasons. This'll be the third season. He is Showing glimpses of being a terrific player a star in this league. I think he can be. And i talked to craig ruby about him. Said willie opened up camp and a top six. Rowley said yes. I said craig will be at center. And he said yes. He'll be given that opportunity. It's his blue. So this is what fans have been clamoring for a couple years. They'd like to see him playing with tara cinco. They won't get that early on with tarasenko out of but robert thomas if he starts on one of the top two lines at center you'll see a lot of happy fans looking forward to seeing what he can bring this season a couple more questions. I'll let you go. Great in terms of vladimir latimer tarasenko. Do you think the best case scenario is for him in in two thousand twenty one. Well the best thing is that the fans don't like to hear this but the fact that the season was delayed you know if they would have started in december you would a missed a at least three months of letterman cinco and potentially more. But the fact that the season won't start until january thirteenth sink goes reevaluation. Timetable is in february. The blues are gonna take a look at him at that point. That'll be five months post surgery. That doesn't mean he'll be ready necessarily but in the past two other surgeries That timetable has been pretty accurate terms that get back at a acid slipping into a game so we saw what happened. Last time. he wasn't quite completely one hundred. Percents needed the other operation but if they can get him back sometime in february march he isn't gonna miss as many games had started that in december. It's going to be fun to see how this division plays out. You got colorado. We know they're very good. The blues are very good. I can't wait to see the blues. And the golden knights with petro. Now with vegas. How do you think this shakes out in that division. Yeah a lot of debate. I know one fans. I started to hear where that the blues are going to be in the pacific division. They were really upset. And i understand why losers central division teams centrally located up but the one or two of these teams in fact had to go out to the pacific to make it work. The blues were in favor of it. Talked doug armstrong. He likes the fact that once you get out west. There's not a lot of travel in between cities. also they like the fact that if there's a off days which they're going to have that they're gonna have the warmer climates. Be able to do some things with the team but in terms of the competition you gotta think that its top heavy. It's heavier than we see in that central division you have vegas and colorado terrific teams in the central you have tampa bay and then it's everybody else after that so they're they're gonna take the top four teams in each division. Dan so you gotta let the blues chances making the top four out west and then it's going to be a dogfight against those teams like vegas in colorado but man you think about seeing alex betrays the ryan reaves eight times of battle. That's going to become over. The course of the season these night might not be natural rivalries. You're gonna miss the in chicago for the first time in decades. You're not gonna play nashville. Don't get a chance to to relive the detroit red wings rivalry up but this is a situation where these teams are going to play so many times ensure blues fans are gonna get sick and tired of seeing that golden knights local and that avalanche logo near a couple months. How will the blues handled the taxi squad. In terms of what position they'll carry in howard teams approaching that type of situation. Yeah so you're gonna have forty players forty players in camp. That's a thirty six skaters and and four goaltenders. And then by opening night you'll have to get down to max twenty-three roster you'll have six on the taxi squad. This is going to be a good thing for the balloons to have those extra guys around that we all know the reason for it is because of a covert unique guys on hand who are able to jump into the lineup. If need be. Just fly. Out from st louis to la. Get him in the lineup. So they'll have that taxi squad but will also be a craig rupees disposal to call guys offense taxi squad just like you're calling a guy up from the minor leagues activate them. You'll still have waivers and same situation. You'll go through during a normal regular season. But you'll have the guys with you on the team. If you wanna make some switches that could bode well if say a guy like scott part of it is on that taxi squad they wanna get a look with big clubs. He'll be right there. What are you hearing a wrap it up with this about fans in the stands in saint louis eventually and then fans in certain municipalities Down in dallas. You're in texas or if you look at the florida teams are you know. They're they're opened up in many states at least partially. So what are you hearing about. Fans generally speaking with the nhl in the buildings and then fans with the saint louis blues some arenas are going to be limited capacity and some are still in a situation where they can't have fans at all and the situation with the blues. They've announced that they won't have any fans until Late january at the earliest. So you're looking at about four home games where you expect no fans and then they could. Could i stress could open it up to limited capacity. You know dan. I know that Early on that's what everybody is going to be looking at work. Can you play Who's who's gonna open it up to fans up at big question. Mark here is throughout the season. You know what kind of kovic situations are we going to experience or are they going to have cities or teams have to shut down their home games. Because of the cases you could have a situation like a city like kansas kansas city where it's just a city that can host some games. The that's been talked about. So i think once they get rolling That's going to be the bigger issue keeping these venues open and eventually if those numbers go down and they're doing a good job with the protocol and keep them as many people as they can't healthy then slowly but surely getting more and more fans back into their and that's the great. The great news about this is that the nhl is back. The blues are on the ice. Training camp has started. And jeremy rutherford back at it with the athletic loved your work during the shutdown and during the bubble and waiting for hockey continues at the athletic hey. Jr appreciate your time. Thanks so much anytime. dan thank you. Jeremy rutherford of the athletic.

So No. That's emotional for the kid. He's got a daughter who's a junior in college. They headed drive there today. Take up her belongings and bring her car back so again. Everybody's dealing with his differently. My kids are younger so you get their school work every single day. You're essentially home schooling them. And then I have friends who have no kids or who have older kids who are basically loving being corentin and not having any social interaction whatsoever so I think the experienced probably different for all of us but one thing we can all agree on is we want to get back to our normal lives and hopefully get back soon. Absolutely you're based here in Saint Louis but so well connected throughout the National Hockey League The Blues would great chance to defend the cup. So there's so many blues fans that are curious about an NHL season. So I'll ask you. We got good words out of Wayne Gretzky yesterday. Saying Hey I think it may happen over the weekend What are your thoughts on the potential of NHL SEASON? I agree with Wayne because I do believe that. The National Hockey League is going to do everything in their power to play games this summer and award a Smelly Cop Danny Matt. I mean But the reality is the. Nhl has been a little say in the situation. We all know what's up to the health authorities Now the government obviously is gonNA steer which direction this goes in and you know if the National Hockey League gets a green light to play. I think they're going to do everything in their power to get. You know the players back on the ice and You know what that looks like whether you have a tournament you just have postseason dance play. You go straight to the playoffs. You finish out the regular season. Do you have every team? Play the same number games. Whether that's seventy four games. Seventy six games very unlikely you would get to eighty two so these questions that we don't have answers to and I think the questions are the answers to these questions really depend on how much time you have left. I think two rounds of a best of five and a half two rounds of a best of seven in a Stanley Cup playoff format Talking to people around the League to any they truly believe you probably need at least minimum six weeks to get that done. And that's for a best of five in the first two rounds not even getting straight into a best. Which is the traditional National Hockey League format? So again. They do have some runway some time on their side. They've already said publicly. They're willing to play deep into the summer. Even if that means into early portion of September. We're willing to do that. Obviously are hoping we see it in terms of how they would do it for me being a baseball guy. You know a lot of talk of quarantining in Phoenix or in down in Florida spring training sites what would the NHL do well. There's been talk about neutral sites and the University of North Dakota has been brought up. Buffalo New York has been brought up New Hampshire has been brought up. Saskatoon up in Canada has been mentioned as a city and even talking to bill. Daley the the Deputy Commissioner of the National Hockey League and he told me recently that you know ever since that reports surfaced about being willing to play a neutral sites away from traditional NHL markets. He said a number of cities volunteer to say. Hey you can come play here now whether you play within plane without fans honesty looks like We see hockey as soon as this summer. I think most people would agree. It'd be hard to play with fans rallies packed stadium You know you talked to Doug Armstrong from the Saint Louis Blues General Manager. There you know. He says he preferred to play Games. Here in your own. Nhl Market even. If it's with our fence you know. He looks at sports as a luxury. I think a lot of us do and even if it's with fans if you put a game on television Danny I think just for that two and a half three hour period of time. I think fans will take that even if it means. They can't get down to the arena and watch it live just to see your Saint Louis Blues. Whoever your favorite team is playing a A meaningful game and watch intense. Nhl Hockey or playoff hockey. I think people would take that. It's not going to look the same and we're not just going to run right into a situation that looks like you know what we saw. Prior to the corona virus taking over this country it's going to be has to be different We're GONNA have to ease our way into getting back to normalcy if you want to use that word and if it means playing playoff games this summer without fans I would think most fans would take that and I think players have even changed their view on that. Danny I mean you you would appall players you know several weeks ago. I think most players say that's insane. Why would we do that? Play Games without saying but make no There's there's no point in doing that whatsoever. I think now you players. They realized that maybe their only option. I think they want to get back on the ice and I think they'd be willing to do that. I was going to about to ask you that. What do you think the appetite is for for those at and correct me? If I'm wrong the the players did get paid for their full regular season But what is the appetite to play hockey without fans in their opinion? Yeah they WANNA play and their last. Paycheck was due on April Fifteenth. And as it sits right now. They helped Jack and we'll see what they do with it. It could go back into escrow which would go towards duck hockey related revenue pot which determines what the salary cap is every year and how much money the owners get versus. How much money the players get. I think the players realized that if they want to get back to you know increasing revenues and you know at minimum keeping the salary cap flat heading into next season. I think any hockey certainly help in terms of reaching that goal and adding television revenue and whatever revenue they can add towards the overall part of HR so You know I think players are our understanding of that The National Hockey League Players Association has had pretty much weekly calls with membership Colton PERICO is the The player Reps Saint Louis Blues. He's been on both calls. Any player in the League can jump on if they want and so they're trying to educate and keep guys as informed as possible But I think they understand the circumstances and the realization. You're unlikely GONNA play with fans but again the CAP will certainly be affected if they don't find ways to generate revenue in one way to doing so is to play into this summer in terms of how the revenue split for postseason hockey. How does that work between the owners and the players while for post-season obviously the gate revenues? Big Part of that. I mean you look at the blues last year. You don't ticket revenue Sweet sales you're not gonNA have any of that so right now it's television revenue and in terms of how it's you know Divvied up I mean that's to be determined. That's where the two sides certainly speaking right now In terms of the NHL in the National Hockey League Players Association. I mean they're getting down And discussing a number of things Dan including extending the current. Cpa which now is the perfect time to do that. You know outside of just dealing with some of the micro issues in terms of what to do with his final paycheck where you're going to do moving forward here the short term. I think some people with the GOP a are really pushing along with the National Hockey League. I should say To really look at some of the bigger issues some of the macro issues which is to find a way to reach agreement long-term and get this. Cva finalized But in terms of what playoffs would look like Dan? It's tough to say how much revenue one side would get versus the other because everything has been determined in terms of what hockey's GonNa look like in your opinion. Is your drop dead date to make this happen for the NHL? Well I pay. I'm glad you put it that way. Because my opinion I think you know talking to some people. They think they got to have an idea where things are at sometime between may fifteenth. And before you get into the real late portion of the month of May sometime next month we're going to have to have a firm understanding of what that date looks like I think internally they probably have an idea right now I mentioned that six week timetable. That doesn't include a two or three. Maybe even four week training camps get back get guys back on the ice and get themselves back into hockey condition. Not Hockey shape. I think there is a different. I think it comes down just to get back into to condition. You know I was talking to animals about that recently on our podcast and now he's guys stay in hockey shape. He said listen. I haven't played in several years but I still find myself in hockey shank. Am I in condition to go play? Nhl Game no but from a string standpoint. You don't necessarily lose as much as people might think you would But it's all about getting back into conditions. How long does it take You Know David. Back didn't skate for six weeks Prior to being traded to the Anaheim ducks from Boston at the trade deadline. Basically told him to go home and to sit there until they find a trade partner and he wasn't allowed to skate he didn't escape for six weeks and then. I think it took them somewhere around six days to skate and get himself ready to Klang in the NHL game which you get a couple times before this NHL pause so it probably doesn't take players as long as some would think but I would think at least two weeks of training camp would be realistic so again. Maybe we're talking eight weeks and to answer your question. I think. Sometime between may fifteenth and may thirtieth. We're going to have to determine what that drop dead date looks like and you mentioned at the training camp. He thinks it would be only about two weeks right. Yeah I'm not so sure. You need much more than that. I mean. Obviously guys skate. Throughout the summer they come in training camp in shape but you see now danny that. Nhl teams play preseason games after being on the ice for just two or three or four days in right into a preseason schedule now the differences you have go to training camp roster so you have a lot of younger players players who are going to get shipped off to the junior teams are maybe to the miners who make up a good portion of these preseason rosters at least early in training camp so unless I'm getting to are you going to jump right into. Nhl Action again intense NHL action if he goes straight into the playoffs. I mean we're talking about intense. Nhl Hockey. You're GONNA need some time to get guys geared up and ready to play at that level from the Blues Perspective. Doug Armstrong is still busy this last week. A couple of extensions. What do you think that means for Jay Bouwmeester number one number two? What does it mean for Alex Petra Angelo and his future in Saint Louis? Well potential start with that. Because he's the bigger fish obviously and probably the number one unrestricted free agent in the National Hockey League. If it reaches that point I think in the case Petro Danny along with some other players if you WANNA put him in that category. I don't necessarily put Tarot Hall in that category of People Might Tori crew as a defenseman from the Boston bruins. Who has a ton of upside offensively? It has been a good player in this league for a long time Those are some of the big fish that you're looking at. But I think for some of these guys including portraying though. I don't think there's any eagerness to sign anytime soon. I think if you're petro yourself hey listen. We're GONNA play again this summer and I'm on a contending team. What's my value if we win the Stanley Cup again? What's my value? All of a sudden I win as the MVP The Stanley Cup playoffs. Then how does my value change versus where it is right now even though he still considered. Probably the number one unrestricted free agent to be in the National Hockey League. So I don't see some of these guys signing. I think some of the players that you've seen sign already at least specifically here in Saint Louis Marcos Candela. I mean here's a guy who was on his third team this season. I don't think he ever saw for your contract falling into lap. That was a no brainer for him. That was a team to go ahead and get that done. And then you have you know. Sandy blamed who was a young player? Who's a restricted free agent? Relatively easy contract to get done. I think contract like Vince done for example. Much more complicated. Even though he doesn't have arbitration rights he may want a bigger number off the bat and the Bluest Navy looking to give him and it may take some time to to agree on a on a contract with him and let sabre portrayal. I think he's going to be as patient as possibly can. And certainly won't look to sign right now. Jay Bouwmeester I think most people would agree It's very unlikely we see him play in the National Hockey League again. He's accomplished everything you possibly could accomplish as an NHL player. And I don't think he has his eyes set on returning and playing in the National Hockey League. This is the final year of his contract. Anyway and the fact that the blue just went out and resigned Marcos Candela obviously points to the fact that the days of of Djabel being a NHL. Claire Most likely are done. Although if you come back this season he still technically on a team and still be around the team and certainly get a ring if the blues win another Stanley companies. Still part of the team. Even if he's not in uniform building in terms of Petro Can they fit him under the CAP? What will the Catholic like if we come away with no hockey in this in this Summer you listened last been questioned. Yeah I I've talked to players aged about this. Of course will ask you leaks Danny and the presuming thought is that the salary cap is going to stay flat at eighty one and a half million dollars moving into next year the projections or for it to go up as high as eighty eight million coming out of the GM meetings Couple of months ago now in Boca Raton Florida just right before the. Nhl went on pause Even most people believe they would never get that high but that was the rings that built daily set out. Are you know report publicly coming out of those? Gm meetings in Florida I think most people are are are assuming that it's going to stay flat at eighty one point five. Give or take a little bit either northbound or just below but it's not gonna change much more than what we saw for this season so that's GonNa make things a little bit more tricky. I mean that's where you know in the case like portray Angelo How he could be affected. I mean teams that have payroll flexibility could be teams that you consider as non-contenders rebuilding teams teams. That don't have a chance to win. In the short term how attractive would he be to those teams contending teams teams that have a nucleus of players who can get it done and wind today may not have the ability to go out and get a player like Alex betraying? You can certainly move pieces around and make trades and creates space but again. That's where the challenge comes in right now for Alex mccranie. He wasn't dealing with a handful of weeks ago that he will be dealing with now. Moving forward I am of the belief. No Dan that. If you're a top player you're gonNA find a way to get paid. Even when we came into the system back in two thousand five two thousand six. Most a player can get paid is twenty percent of the salary cap. That's only happened once and that came back in two thousand five two thousand six coming into a new system when everyone was saying. These guys aren't going to get paid and that was Brad Richards. He got a big contract. Twenty percent of the salary cap at a time when when people were saying these guys are no longer than make big time money so I still think there is plenty of money to go around for a dollar gallons portraying. He's GonNa get paid if not here in Saint Louis certainly somewhere else. Final question about him then is is he more apt to take. Maybe a little less to stay here with a family a wife that's from here in law's from here triplets editor here born here. Is He more apt to do that? Or is he more of the kind of guy that says you know what? I'm this is my bite at the apple and I'm going for the biggest apple that's out there. Listen it's a great question. I mean he's represented by the make a comparison to baseball Scott. Boris of the National Hockey League in terms of his agency through Newport Sports Bay traditionally like to get the most money for their clients I look at it for Alex Portray Angelo that if he were to stay here. I mean you can certainly make the argument that he'd eventually find his number hanging from the rafters have a statue outside of the Enterprise Center. He'd break historical records semi historic records burning for. Arcos all time games played as a member of the Saint Louis. Blues said Steph matter to him know. How important is that to him? That's the biggest question I mean. Does that matter to him and if it does then. I think you'll find a way to make it work here in Saint Louis. It's not as important not to suggest that he doesn't care her He's GonNa Look Outside. Saint Louis but what I am saying. If he does stagger Saint Louis He's GonNa have opportunities it probably wouldn't be made available to him with other teams just based on where he'll stack rank historically as a member of this organization being the only captain in the history of the organization to ever you get the lift the Stanley Cup You know I mean. How important are those things to Alex Rodriguez? Well we're GONNA find out near future. You're the best buddy great info really appreciate it. You're so well connected and stay safe.

The Kilcoyne Conversation Mark Sauer

"One thing that i've said repeatedly is i love people with great resumes where they sort of switch it up maybe have a different career or go from one big job to the next and the kilcoyne conversation zeroes in on somebody with a more than fascinating resume. Somebody who's also created a new chapter in their life mark sauer. Who was the president of the saint louis blues. He ran the cardinals for a while. He ran the pittsburgh pirates. Not not adverse to controversy either hired by the pirates to sort of gut the team and sell. It had a great run with the blues but at the end bill lawry wanted to sell it and marks our again. The job was slash the budget. We get into all of that. His reputation is sorta the hatchet man that had to kind of always stick to the budget. The controversial. Chris pronger trade. What was it like with the lorries. running busch stadium back in the day with bill. Bidwill and the football cardinals. Were the tenants their marks our worked for the brewery worked for august busch. The third had dealings with stan kroenke back in the day. Fascinating career at that now finds him In his seventies living in florida and the last decade or so he's been real involved sort of inner city projects their kids playing basketball but now even more importantly getting them to the collegiate level not necessarily even sports but just getting kids into college. It's really his focus right now. I have to tell you. I enjoyed this conversation as much as we've had in quite some time. He's a trip man. He likes to give me a hard time. As you can tell didn't help that. I couldn't remember the name of his charity. That didn't help. But a lot of fest any topics including the the economics of it all. He really believes to this day. Saint louis can't support three major franchises. He said if you look at all the numbers he said. I haven't looked at them lately. He said but i used to have that stuff. And saint louis was a bit like cincinnati or milwaukee or an indianapolis where major pro sports teams were. All they could handle so. I hope you'll enjoy the visit.

Hannah's bush subsidiaries saint louis blues the saint louis cardinals the pittsburgh pirates mark. This resume If i didn't know any but i'd say you're impressive. But i wouldn't say that to you how are you. It's been way too long to hear from you. And i welcome this opportunity. Chattel now are you doing. I'm doing well. you know. The sports world has been kinda strange but if anything especially back in april or may it gave us a lot of time to kind of dig in do more long-form interviews or more feature type pieces instead of you know we ended up chasing our tail all the time with. Hey somebody went to for three last night and four strike outs or over four and you know some of that stuff can get of boring. I prefer to. Hey you spent your whole life in sports. you know what it's like and escapes. Oh you escaped okay. Let me put you on the spot before we get to. We are bound for glory dot. Org people should check that out because you're doing great work right now college. God i wrote it down. We are bound for college. I went to college. Believe it or not. We are bound for college. The name of the nonprofit is bound for college or website is We are bound for college. Dot org okay. The website we are bound for. We're off to a terrible start. This we are but that's okay. That's okay we we we we. This is bringing back memories for mark of dealing with me. Okay but taking away your work with bound for college. What was your favorite job. Because i mentioned it you work with the ab subsidiaries brewery help refurbish the kheel center blues ten year. Run cardinals pirates. What is one of those jobs. Stand up more than the other walk. Fall is my favorite job. My favorite job was probably the blues. I i had little background in hockey. That's an understatement but The people in hockey the people i worked with at the blues and around the league or delightful I came to really enjoy a lot of aspects of hockey. And i put it above the pittsburgh pirates pittsburgh pirates by far by far the most difficult job i have read and the cardinals when i was involved there under anti bush. Vows a lot of fun to but there's also a lot of corporate pressure and i was younger. I i didn't I you know. I knew how to handle better time. I got to pittsburgh in on the blues and when you were running the cardinals so the brewery owned it but there's all in in saint louis got some gobbledygook so civic center corporation was what that was a piece of the brewery. I was president civic center for. I guess five five years you so. That was the stadium in the nearby real estate. In the garages that we ran the stadium. You know the concession stands the sweets the advertising and all that the in about halfway through that i was very fortunate to be named the Chief operating officer of the card. That's okay and So i that was my by entree into professional sports and Those are the went in is. Your bush was a magnificent company and it was it was i was proud to work for them and they were first class and everything they did in that. That's not only from the beers they sold and everything. They did at the stadium but behind the scenes. They were just a great well. What in joe torry would have been the manager the whole time. You're there out. He i wish there when Whitey left when why did he resign. And then i was ardo group that recruited joe torry to become the manager So i got to joe of pretty. Well he's a wonderful guy wonderful guy in you. You're the pittsburgh they actually had it going right when you got there yet. Jim leyland had bonds. Baena when you first got there. Sort of their heyday. I mean not like seventy missile feed right into the way you like to stereotype swashbuckling. Cost gutter in a corporate animal. I was late. I was going to be nice. What right now. Let's get to it right now. What are the reasons. They hired me. Episkopi president ceo the pittsburgh pirates In ninety one. I was here. March of banks is they had to dismantle Bonds and bonita and blade that it was way too expensive the payroll for the pirates so I had i love pittsburgh. I love everything about the pirates and the community but that was a hard job. Because i had if they wanted to lower the payroll. They've never gone through this before you know they had ownership that it just don't bought the team a few years previously and then we went to the players strike the ninety four ninety five and we sold the team in early ninety six and we got sales tax approved that funded the new stadium so I realize a lot of detail for you in the afternoon. Martin but those are the pieces of what made a Tenure at the pirates very difficult. But i loved it all at the same time but by way you added swashbuckling. I was just going to say hatchet man. But that's okay you but which in pittsburgh brought you in today say. Hey here's the deal. Did you know going in what you're facing. Oh my gosh yeah they they needed the you know one thing. I one of the many things. I learned an arch. Push the garnered is what you know. Come up with your budget. Be realistic and you. You work the budget and you're loyal to ownership and and you put a as good a product as you can afford. And you know. Don't waste anybody's time wringing your hands or complaining off the record to the media just go out and do it and then you come back to saint louis. So you'd had your cardinal experience your abc. I keep saying subsidiary but were you in charge and you when you left the world it always said you were gonna you to run seaworld and busch gardens that kind of stuff and you understand the sports world. Wanna take that job. Let's put it that way. Okay so now you get to come back. Saint louis and it's a. It's a weird time for the blues. Because they just fired. Mike keenan they still had they still had brett hull. They had fired jack win and they were bought. And i think when you got there they probably. It's right around this time of year. They had just found joel quenneville. I believe also. So this was a sequence. They simultanously fired. Jack win in and an appointed me as president and ceo and lanka lot Helped me as a sort of interim general manager and we went out and hired joel window a few months after that was the transition to the quenneville era. I want i bring this up because you know and i think you have been doing for the dismantling of the blues but you were there ten years and i'm being honest here and being sincere. That was a really good run. With quenneville and winning the presidents trophy in advancing to the final the one year two thousand and one and always being really good just couldn't quite get past detroit or colorado stretcher. Every year the blues lost it was the eventual stanley cup champion. And i know you pretty well. But i've always wondered. Did it bother that bielsa blue when actually the ten year run was pretty fruitful. we did. We made the playoffs every year. Except the last year and the the way when at the end Luring couple years into my My tenure at the at the blues presidency of the lorries bought the team from the all parts. And laurie's You know beefed up our payroll Know speaker swashbuckling meal. They really they got. They're going to win a copies. Produc- will not that easy and you know. We won the president's cup in ninety. Nine two thousand and we got to the conference finals loss of lauch in And they wanted that. You like guessing a one in will pay and then and then lory frankly one of the major. This'll sound may be difficult to articulate. i came to the conclusion that the woolly should solvable. They were losing a lot of money. They were not having any fun. They taken a real tough good one aggressive trying to win the cup. That's about the time you remember the naming lights problem with missouri's basketball leaner too. Yeah okay. They went through that and that was plus and they had just they. Weren't they lose a lot of money. They weren't having fun with the blues. They were older. Don't get me wrong. But they never connected with second louis ever connected with anyone in the nhl and it was look. I worked for the owners. I you know. I don't work no sense. I worked for the guy with the thirty two ounce beer and last seat the last of role with the ownership and it was my conclusion that i thought they should sell the team. I persuaded them to do that. And that started the odyssey of showing it to the checketts partnership and during that process We lowered the payroll in that last year. And that was the pond or trey. I think so. You know you can call me or anybody with with that last year when we were were not good and We lowered to pay will but that was part of selling the team. Get that was part of the process. And that's not fun and so did it ever bother you that you got labeled even though you'd been. She never bothered me absolutely not. My job was the or the ten years of the blues and the five or six years of pirates. I sold those teams three times. Pirates wants bluish twice. Remember i sold it to the i was wanting when we sold it we were and then i was running it when the lorry sold the check. Okay so in that period of dozen years or so. I sold two different teams three times. Okay and i want it out. I was really really tired of just tired of the of the business of running team. Frankel wanted out deal. I mean it wasn't your trade was it mandated by ownership or was it. They gave us a bunch of player payroll budget that can only be reached if we traded pomp. Nobody told us betrayed pronger but the only way to get to the number. They wanted when i say they. They had some advisors okay. They had some advisors came up with a number. they said. You've gotta be at that number so wary and i delivered that payroll bump at that point. It was an absolute or they never. They never told the scooter. Trade gave us a payroll budget that that had to be met and the only way to make it was to move on. You mentioned larry. That'd be gm all and you. Larry is still too. He took a lotta shit to but he had some good teams with him. Wait a second. Wait a second. What do you mean. He delivered a lot of good hockey. He still scouting for He's he's scouted a lot of the players that are on that rosca. That woman called. Larry and i are very close friends. We have such blatant laugh when we talk. We talk frequently. And all. I i feel very warmly about a lot of people Back in saint louis and associated with the boos cardinals for that friendship. Great way and i say to crack as he did like when they wouldn't win or advance. He was criticized but he's still involved. He was in the stanley. Cup parade won the cup. What did it feel like. You'd had a ten year run with that. You knew what it was like to be closed and not be able to get through the knocked down the door. Whatever the analogy is would it mean to you and they want it a good night out okay. My my wife. Donna was out of town and I started the was. It was game seven in boston. My memory correct and and i have a couple of buddies down here in florida. We're good hockey fan. Slept blues fans by the wall street. Wall street guys. Who think they know a lot about hockey you know. So they they were. They wanted to go out and watch the game with me. So we started one establishment. In do i remember right. Martin's blues went up two nothing in the first quarter i into the first period. The petro goal may to zip. And that's when. I actually said to myself which is dangerous. I i said to my sitting in the press box. I said they're gonna do it. They're gonna win the deal. I remember. I remember that kim is the blues. Were distinctly distinctly out skiing out hitting boston. Biwott that right it was. It was epic. And you're like obviously it mattered. You go into the evening and then the fellas decided they were having so much fun. Let's go to another establishment through an expert. Okay and then we we. It was like a popcorn and then we went to third one one bar and you probably still got a bill. You probably still got a bill lawry credit cards somewhere so hell is probably free What do you talk to the lorries at all. No no and when they were in short was cranky ever run. They were kind of mortal rivals already. Weren't they so he was never in the picture. I know stan i knew. Stand from before Just various things when he first got involved as a minority owner of the rams and get new and a little bit and then you know the lorries tried to buy the avalanche and the nuggets in the arena in colorado. That phil through. I was not involved that at all. It's just running lose. And then they turn their attention to the saint louis blues and then parkey thereafter went in and bought the package in denver. I have that correct. Yes that is one hundred percent correct. In part of i think with bill lawry what was going to make it all work and this is what i want to get into with. You also is the finances of sport because he thought. Hey if i can bring an nba team. We pair them up. We got the same building and he had the grizzlies the vancouver grizzlies calming. But they were his team at least for a minute. And then i just felt like with bill lawry wants the. Nba thing fell through. I'm not saying he lost interest but it just wasn't going to work. Glad you brought that up because arguably one of my very most interesting part portions of my might my ten years with the blues when the maurice bought us and they did it martin did their people did not do any homework on stage just came in and bought it okay and That was frankly caused for long term alarmed. Because i don't think they knew what they were getting to financially. Okay now that the same time simultaneously without me being involved at all thank. Goodness day negotiated an option to to by the vancouver grizzlies. Okay and I volunteered and they used me to go up to the in couvert to do a financial study of the grizzlies the nba. And what if they were able to to buy the the grizzlies exercise the option by the grizzlies. And move it okay. I concluded a lot of work on this at some talking about us and having some good meals out man. I like the king and crew for about six weeks now. What are those blues. Tickets kept going up every year. I tell you what. I love and cougar. Such a great city. But anyway i concluded that We would have been a a real upside down bad situation to to By the the grizzlies aluminum to saint louis and put him into the saint louis market and it doesn't surprise me. All the rams left. I was running busch stadium when the football cardinals. Okay so I get a lot of experience. A lot of scar tissue with the economics of the nfl. All the leaks. That was my business. You know i had to i. I was responsible for economics. But only the nhl where major league baseball when i was running those respective teams but how those economic stood up against the economics of the over professional each democ sense. You're in you're your perfect person asked because it's been said if they adjust built bill. Bidwill the stadium. We wouldn't have been chasing. The rams were built the dome would be chasing kroenke back l. a. And all this stuff that's happened. Since do you subscribe to that. That if they just got to deal with bidwill now. I believe and i knew bill. Goodwill rather wealth Very show us very shy. And i know we lost them a to bill reshine withdrawn. But i got the little bit. I you know i was the representative anheuser. Busch running the stadium and bush way own that he was playing. It was not a great situation. I think that he never was interested in remaining never and that he was looking for a more vibrant market more growing market with more potentially founded in arizona I think that the size of the market in the desirability to get to that new market place Trump anything set lewis could adopt anything in the rams left. Your reaction is what not frozen history. Just just fill take that last paragraph. I said and change rename of the cardinals to orient. So saint lewis in. Your opinion is just only capable of two major sports team. Correct correct any chance. In the last ten years with the teens. The express scripts and other businesses that popped up. I think it could have changed. No no i think. That's just my opinion that the metropolitan area that let's say the fourth largest metropolitan areas in the country. Okay saint louis. I'm seventy four years old okay. I haven't looked looked at this data for a long long time. But i used to know that data cole. Cold and Say who is. Metro is closer more closely aligned to the likes of kansas city cincinnati indianapolis and milwaukee who each have two professional sports teams. Okay janet is to los angeles or seattle or denver or boston or or or such okay and and it's just a matter of gross national product of metropol. Would she's not that great compared to other places and if people might be offended about what. I'm saying we disagree with the person. The pudding is the only metropol bear you twice whilst an nfl football do different teams. That's hard to new. Bless there's some facts under white that right. I think. I think cleveland lost to you because of the rams years and years and years come on now come on just twenty forty. I don't want to hear about the forty fifth. I'm getting old okay.

You're hanging around me and you will forget enterprise. Only one of my best memories is a long way to answer. Is i would always sit next to earl. Lost and who's the guy is ram who you still doing doing it. Do you guys ever changed jobs any. It's like groundhog day. Everybody everybody is still doing exactly what they did. Say louis fourteen and a half years. We don't guys warned about that. We we don't change. We're part of the lack of saint. Louis not moving forward. There's no progress. The we don't change professions. We just change stations all the time. Okay but listen i wanted. I wanted to on this college basketball thing. Because i would sit next to to the right of rural and and they were the biggest homer for the billikens. I've ever and the visiting coaches back. In those days would include guys like calipari and in bob hogan's and hearing homage profanity at the west and his old players like within ten feet away from these guys was so much fun and and calipari was there. was charlie was coaching. The billikens that was fun. But yes damn mclaughlin. I big fan. If i could get into the college basketball game so i went out i it was. It was the brass at missouri And mclaughlin has never had that kind of pre-game analysis for any that he's ever bought. Okay and i sat next to him. Was that the center is probably the her insomnia before the arena. And what will you know a cold. Budweiser after the game. And stated a holiday inn. And i really thought crazy colder by martin and i really thought i was in the big time. That's the fan that i wanted to hear. Mark sauer businessmen budget man is a true hoops fan. And i actually in. This is real serious and i and i'm and i don't want to bring up the tragedy or son but i the moment i remember and i was just starting out at at Fox too is when stanford all teams happens end up in a regional in saint louis makes it to the final four and your sons on the stanford team and i remember running into the stands interview and you were bare as you said. It's not about me. It's about the kids. But at that moment and god rest peter soul makes it to the final four with in the building that you work out of that you run. I mean what are the odds. That could have even happened. But you know what you know. That's a great memory. But peter Gear without stanford you know he was. We live in pittsburgh news player of the year. Pennsylvania was heavily recruited what to stanford three year starter to your cap and they went to the final four when he was junior. He's the captain. And we had i i. I went to a lot of games mark a lot and we had so much fun so much fun along those four years with friendships of players parents and families and I'm still very very close. To the young men compete a wound with at stanford and they were football players and they have been kind enough to keep me in orbit very close in some one guy even innovation stout here with his three daughters With us so that you know there were so many. Highlights highlights a plan when they beat because he's rhode island to get to the final four air was was novel that he was in my building. But i think he was playing. North dakota was still a big deal would have been there either way wherever they would have been playing. A little morrow was on that rhode island team missed a mistake guards to katina. Mobely i think and i. I don't know why some of these names are coming back to me ex coach from ucla. You jim jim. Jim here yes. He was sorta greasy was great players. Get the rhode island all just sort of worked out that way Are let's get to it because what you're doing now i'm going to put words in your mouth and say this is more gratifying than anything you've ever done. Is that fair. Like adult wife and her okay or three different things. I ended up doing. I got a master's degree at columbia. And i was very fortunate to get into international business. Travel the world international play all over the world egypt pakistan india brazil everywhere. Got out of that. After ten years or so found my way day bush and then won the lottery. Powerball when should bush got me involved with civic center the saint louis cardinals okay and then that started was about twenty years in professional sports. Saint louis cardinals. Pittsburgh pirates st louis blues. That's about point-by-point years. Twenty four years. trust me. I was sick and tired of that at the end. Okay like i said sewing. Those teams was hard. You know when you get when you get disgruntled ownership that's hard that's difficult anyway so And then i retired. And i wanted to get before and get to the ocean. I wanted to work with Black it's okay my son's great basketball players and we always had a team foul teams were going on trips. And and and i just i just. I've always felt very comfortable. I was on the board. At herbert hoover boys and girls club under flint fowler work and i just wanted to you know like i and i'm still closer for and flash. I wanna be. I wanna go to florida.

What we do is raise money so we can pay teachers to stay after school and tutor underprivileged low-income kids on the act sat tests more listing. Listen where you go to college marquette university quality. I bet you did you. Did you get a sixteen hundred on your. Sat's i'm gonna run a stable. I don't remember. But i'm gonna say no okay i did. I didn't do very well okay. So we supply that extra tutoring kids and we have some football players. But i'm i've fallen out of love with open football players. It's time consuming. I've got a kidney. Nfl he's like our sun creek. Wants new orleans and went to central florida. He's had a great career with the saints. And you hear.

You're doing great work. And i would get these wonderful christmas cards every year with you and it did look like the white shadow. You you coaching. Young african americans. And you'd be in the middle in the middle of the huddle the picture you and my wife and i know who's this i said. Well he used to run the saint louis blues and the saint louis cardinals. What's he doing. Said he's he's in del. Boca vista no delray beach. And and then. So you're doing this work. And we have you on the radio a few years ago and i said sadly mark pulled the kids aside and said we're cutting the budget. We won't be on traffic. I'm just. I'm dismantling the team check. No more no more snack. But mr explain to my wife Donna why i'm doing this interview and who you are so this is the guy who law air if you use a ago. Call me out saying mark. You still cut the budget. Embrace you know ten year old basketball player hearts you know with your bottom line. This is mr sour. How can we can have any gatorade here. You go kid. Here's a spreadsheet on. What's going on her. I gotta tell you this and make sure you talk frank russo model. This opaque make sure you do. Okay i will. I was i was sitting. I've never been. I was just an average high school athlete. Okay wasn't a good basketball player. But coach i can really coach okay. I'm the reverse on the inverse of cruiser model who motto was. Really good player ghetto. But he can't coach with so he knows minority key and i both know cannot coach as he used to come to make our make. Sure make sure when. I get off this call now. I know he's probably doing what a one hour special today on the dismissed the championship. They he was on so you know when he gets passed. That makes you tell them. Mark was talking about and mark scott material. You what you should write a book. I mean how many people were around breath ball contemplating eating book. Serious dig about it. I'm really serious. I'm really serious about year round. Jim leyland bread hall bill. Bidwill august push the fourth. You would have been your boss right. Fourth third thirty. I'm sorry thirty i went. I went down to god i did. I really didn't. I'd reminiscing august busch. The third was a stellar spectacular Ceo and leader in batman did so many things for saint. Louis that saint louis will never know about and i. I wasn't around him a lot. But i was around him enough when he had to make decisions about helping people in flood areas problems in the community. I'll tell you what. I don't know what the legacy of the old old anti bush is. But i hope it's good. Because i was a great company for saint louis break up to legacy and field and i think well i think the the image is been proven correct by so many people who work there that it was a great place to work and that people were treated really really well in that it was a i and now that we're romanticizing it here in saint louis but that it was a special time to have the brewery owned locally Now it's outside ownership. There isn't quite. i'm sure what was the market share back. Then it was ninety percent everybody either. Drink bush wiser and you mean it was a different. It was it. was you know. yeah it was. It's a it's fascinating industry to trace and into hollow because of you know the foreign beers euro beers graph fears all. I know it's i think it's well regarded. I think you know dumb nostalgia and sadness that it's not quite that way anymore. They're i mean they're legendary for every trivia nights town would just call the brewery and they'd say come by friday and grab five cases of beer. You know that kind of stuff is long on. But i think there was plenty of hot shots like you and get on the plane and eating lobster and first class. I'm just assuming that that's how it was. And that's why paid more for my natty light because you and your first class. It's what did you tell your wife say. Hey this guy's kind of an ass but it's gonna be fun. It's interesting my wife. Thought it is still working. She's the chief financial officer of advertise. Okay so I'm actually under her office right now in my car Because we got to do. A running errands So she's she knows. I'm mildly amused by this. You know reminiscent well mark. It's been a lot of fun and love telling the stories. And i have given a lot of shit over the years about but but in truth that ten year run starting in ninety six coming in a tumultuous time after keenan after jack quinn ushering in quenneville began a really good run. Maybe the book maybe the book and include some of those. I don't know if the is if you're allowed to you like the book. It's not going to really address some of the most interesting thing. I've been associated with this. What i'm doing affordable. that's the best. That's the best you know. All this will look back stuff you know you know. I'm i'm still. I've got some great friends. Back in. Saint louis mike claiborne derek. Gould and opposed to plo a bunch of people bunch of people. But i you know the ash with. I don't find that this lookback stuff will be much of interest. I'm just consumed with what's going on with minorities with public education With this crazy place. I live in florida in. it's crazy. okay I love it But it's tricky. And i'm in my seventies And you really go to the beach everyday. Yes you surfin. At times. If i can. Yeah but usually i either ears we. Would you gotta do when you're my age. Martin you've got to take with the ocean gives you so if the oceans flat then you snorkel swim paddleboard. okay If there's a little bit of surf a little bit of surf that mess around with it on my paddle board. I used to surf a little bit more. Okay too old now And then when it's truly rough you just sit on a beach. This is the life. I gotta go back and this is why you're successful. I'm always looking back. You're looking forward that i did. We glendale main street to glendale that i went to cbc then to marquette. And then i moved back in ninety seven and Was i i. I want to say lewis. I'm not poking fun at the media. The sports media sure louis deserve Well by claim but It was it was agreed place. But i see the content. I say you know. I see it through the lens of the nfl teams came and went and You know it was hard so tickets in that lower bowl to the blues games. It was heart you know. I guess it's easy. You wanna cup. That's great but you know we're weird. Baskin eighty ninety bucks back. You know fourteen years ago. Those things were not those tickets from jumping off the shelf. The twenty twenty five dollar tickets pop. They were sold out. You know but we were losing a lot of money back then. It was difficult. But i loved it. It was still fun was hard and by the nba was that was in. You did all that research. And i got obsessed with your your budget vancouver. But was it ever close to come in here or no because you look look. There's not enough. There's not there's not enough. There's not enough of an economic engine in saint louis to support all those teams remember. The rams were that there would have been the nfl. But yeah. I do. Remember the i've got. We were the home.

She is engaged to an MLB baseball player, which I'm so excited to talk about this war because you guys know that my boyfriend is also in the MLB and she's a former Saint Louis Blues is Cheryl Allison. How are you? Hi, good, how are you? Thanks for having me on I'm so excited to chat with you. Let's let's just jump right into it before we even talked about where you're from or anything like that baseball season what the heck is wrong? I know you and I have been jumping in our DMS trying to figure out what what's happening. I say just anybody really know I have no idea a Danny has no idea. I actually was just watching them. Is just now and they're talking about possibly doing a 60-day season, but nothing set in stone and it changes every single day. I heard last week that he was going back this week. And then the next day they're like, oh actually we're not starting any time soon. So I won't believe anything until I see a press release. I mean we find out what's going on. Probably normally motion time, like after there was a press release on it. And after the whole world knows them were like, oh, okay. So that's what we're doing. I am right there with you. It's so sad because I know you guys would there so you have that benefit of living together my boyfriend and he lives in North Carolina. So for us not being able to see each other that much or at all because he sort of quarantined Downing his State because like a lot of sneak around when when it comes to seeing one another because we don't want him to get in trouble with his team, but we're over here trying to figure out like, when do we get to spend the summer together? When can we start hanging out? Is there gonna be a season there was a really funny game. I think Kim Kardashian was in it. I'm going to actually send you it later. It's her it was like sad faces and it says the true mood of an MLB wag. I think it's just so hilarious because off every day not just us like the family the friends the players themselves. I feel like the actual MLB league is up at The Hoots like no one knows what's happening every other day need something new. They're playing baseball and not playing baseball. They're going to be in Toronto, but we don't know if they're going to be in Toronto my wife replace for the Blue Jays. They're going to be done in Florida a great thing is just like spinning in circles. Yeah, you know, I'm not really sure what's going to happen. I think they are going to play at the spring training stadium is what I think is going to happen. I really don't know, Um, it's hard not having a routine. It's hard for a day and he's not have a routine, but honestly, I can't say we haven't enjoyed having all of this time together that we've never had before. I mean normally during birth. All Season, he plays every single day we eat breakfast together and then he goes off to the field and I just do my own thing and then it's like, all right. See you at 11:30 at night after the game, you know, so it's actually been really nice to have that much time together. And yes, we were stuck quarantining together. So definitely a test to your relationship. No, I'm just kidding. I love him but I am home in Saint Louis. Now, we don't live actually live together full time. We will once we are married. We're pretty I mean we're together all the time. But once the season starts in normal life is back up and running. I do work and travel at the same time as he does and I try to see him as much as possible, but we do both have our jobs things going on. So I love that you guys right now with this thing to Ellis and bowls. She's from Saint Louis. She's a former Saint Louis Blues ice girl. We're going to be touching upon that shortly and you guys just wrong. He heard her talking about her fiance with my American accent. I don't think I even say it. So I love it. It's very exotic fiance actually plays for the Atlanta Braves years. He's been in the MLB for a really long time. How did you guys meet? I kind of want you to paint the picture of how you guys met how long you've been dating and then I would ask some questions on how he proposed to you. Yes, actually, it's a really cool story how we met. He did sliding my DM's once before we actually met and to be honest with you guys. I thought he was crazy. He would message me all the time and was like, I really like you like I want to come see you or can you come to Miami who's playing for Miami at the time? And I thought he was really nice and really cute, but I'm not really interested in dating an athlete just working in that environment. I wasn't really trying to do that. So he started sending me gifts home. At me like 12 dozen roses and I was like, oh my God, like I have never even met this guy. Why is he sending me gifts? And then he was actually supposed to play in st. Louis. I think it was. Yeah. It was the first week of July in 2017, and he was like, I'm so excited. I'm finally going to get to meet you and you know, I was kind of planning like, oh, maybe I'll like get lunch with him or something like meet him. He seems like a nice guy, but I wasn't really like not interested. I just wasn't interested in actually having a boyfriend at all or being with an athlete. So I had actually took a trip to visit my friend who was living in Tampa and I was kind of like, oh man, like, I'm really sorry, but ironically I'm actually going to be in Florida the same days that you're back in st. Louis and then he actually ended up getting traded to Tampa Bay two days before I left to Tampa and my friend was wrong. His cousin at the time and they were hanging out and then he got traded so he came up there and we all hung out and then it was totally a God thing and then I did really like him but I was going to like, oh, I don't know if I want to like get into it or like you serious with anybody and the next week he flew to st. Louis on his off day to see me off Channel. Like if you don't date him, we're going to date him and we're not going to feel sorry about it because you're really missing a good opportunity and I was like, oh my God, whatever I'll give him a chance and then she actually got pretty serious after that and we were engaged a year and half later. So yeah, I think that's a super interesting story. I kind of want to ask your opinion on obviously you're in the sports entertainment world like myself and it is very hard dating a professional athlete because at first your kind of like are they going to take me seriously? They have a bunch of other girls that they're talking about. On the side and I know that I went through the same situation with my boyfriend. So you have to put them through the drills. Like they really want to be with me or not because I'm not about to be playing these games. So I kind of like that you wanted to see if he was a kid going to take you seriously or not and I actually love that. He sent you flowers. I love that. I have to go see you. I think that is super cute and so sweet. Yeah, he pursued me for a long time before I caved and I think that just says a lot about a man and who he is. So after you guys have been dating for it looks like you guys or satellite you guys down for around a year and half how was it when he proposed you did you guys want a vacation? Did he do it back home during the holidays. Was it very special? What did your ring look like? Can you show us life is a ring. Okay, my camera is like opposite so it's like, oh my gosh, they're all a rock. You picked up all himself and it's so easy. Default so Timeless. He did a really good job on it. Obviously, it's really nice. But the proposal was really special and where he's from he's from San Jose to Cuba and they don't really do proposals or engagements or even get married most of the time. It's very casual and a lot of people there have kids and they each other but they don't actually like do an official marriage or ceremony everything like that. So it was very different for him and his family and so he really wanted his family to be involved and for me, I just thought it was just gonna be just me and him whenever it happened and I wasn't expecting much. I just wanted it to be like, you know, just me and him not being like to special but his family really wanted to see it cuz they had seen a proposal. So we went to Prime 112 at Miami Beach for dinner. And I kind of had a feeling he was going to propose because he was acting really weird but I didn't think he would have liked his family there. He would do it in front of a whole restaurant cuz he's British. I thought I was kind of like up and maybe not but he was just being so weird. Like I remember I was like what is wrong with you? Like why are you acting so strange and then he called from Champion toast and they brought out champagne for everybody and we did a cheers and then I there was a ring inside of my champagne glass and I actually didn't notice it at all. I have terrible ADHD and I just am not an observant person and I had no idea and everyone was kind of looking around like How's it look in your glass and I like looked at my glass and then I turned around and looked at him and he was down on Monday and ask her to marry him. So it was very sweet and special and his faith was there and it was it was really special. They thought so sweet good thing. You didn't drink your champagne without looking that one of the Dead women God, but it was just a fake ring. It wasn't this ring. He had a ring. It was just a little like fun one. I guess that that smart just in case you lost it or just in case you drank it, but I thought it was really cute that he did that. I wasn't expecting anything like that at all. So was it was really cute that is super cute. I love that you guys have been together for a really long time. It looks like he really wanted to be with you which again as we sort of discussed that it's hard for an athlete to choose who he wants to date or who he wants to marry actually want to do a whole separate episode on that at one point because athletes are very picky with who they want to they want some either future wife dead. Danny is very picky and very skeptical but I do have to say he when he what he wanted one hundred percent and he knew he wanted me and he wanted me to be his wife found. This is really weird and it sounds really weird. And if you would have told me this when we were first together, I would have been like, all right, you're crazy by but when he first came across my Instagram, I came off his Explorer page somehow. I have no idea. We don't have any mutual friends or anything and he said that's it. That's going to be my wife and he said he was nervous to DME. He waited like two weeks and was like freaking out and then he's finally DMV and yeah a year and half later we're engaged. So it's just really crazy technology works like that. So the universe morphing way to put together. Do you have any great wedding plans that you can share with us? I know a lot of it is probably kept secret, but if you have maybe the venue picked out or like a special wedding song you guys might dead. Do anything that you want to share feel free to give us some details on your possible wedding. Hopefully it's not being put off by covid-19. I really wanted to chat about and this is one of the big reasons why I reached out to you. Obviously, I've been following U for a while. I think you're drop-dead gorgeous. I love everything that you're doing but then the Sports World and within being a woman back door and giving back to the community especially being involved with your own non-profit, which we will chat about sports the end, but I am so thrilled that you guys are in an interracial relationship especially during a time like right now with all the riots that are happening in standing up for rights. What is your experience being in an interracial relationship? And if you can share some thoughts to bits of people that might be scared to be an interracial relationship or what it's like to be in one. Obviously you guys are very solid relationship. I mean it is unfortunately people some people still are judgmental of interracial relationships racism does still exist and I I see it happen to add any all the time but I see it happen even more when we're together. Yep. A lot of people don't think that races should mix in a marriage. So, you know, it's 20 20 and times have changed and if people don't have the same perspective that you can love whoever you want or if they are going to judge somebody just based off of their skin color. I mean, that's really the wrong problem and I feel sorry for them that they feel that way. You know, it does happen a lot. I would say more when we are in Georgia. We do get a lot of looks a lot of times especially the grocery store people like look and you know, but then it's always a really really awesome when people look at him or they'll make a comment like, oh are you going to steal that or something and then somebody recognizes him and they're like, oh my God, you're like, can you sign this or whatever and then everybody is the look on their face. They're just like Oh, like he actually made something of himself. Like it's a surprise. You know, it's just it's Dad's the world we live in but times are changing and we are called to be the change and just to be alive life and my advice to anybody that is dealing with the same issue is just to continue being a light and don't let other people bring you down because at the end of the day God's going to page for you and you don't have to have words with anyone that has things to say about you. If you just continue to shine your light, that's all you need to do and that'll take care of the rest. So that's so beautiful. You guys are a gorgeous couple. I hope that I get to bump into you guys on the baseball field this season. I'm praying for it. I really hope I get to see you in either Florida or when we're traveling during the MLB. Then you guys are amazing. I can't wait to stay in touch with you and follow the rest of your journey, but can't wait to see your beautiful wedding photos and that does happen. But let's switch over I won't talk about you grow in a month. In Saint Louis, which I think is absolutely amazing. I've been there one time I went actually talking like working about it last week. Have you ever been inside the st. Louis Arch ND g-arch, if you haven't been in the yard, you're not from st. Louis supposed to be real. I think I've been an arch many times maybe if or five times I know I went when I was real little and then you just kind of like go every once awhile and I know the first time I didn't he was here. They wanted to go on the arch, but it's like something you have to do. It's like a cool thing to do. I mean the view up there is just the a nice view of the is it the Mississippi River the Missouri River Necessary remember, I don't remember. I remember what the cost of phobic it is. Very claustrophobic. So you get this little egg. Yes, and it is very like walk-in fit for people in there. I think actually you can fit five but it's very tight and we're just like growing up and you're like going to the side and it's like I wanted I would like but I knew we were going to die because I've done a bunch of times before and so I wasn't scared but every time I bring new people, they're like, oh my God was happening and then you get out there but there's a nice view of bush ADM and that's really about it. I mean, it's really not that special but it's just something you have to do. Yeah. I enjoyed it a lot. I remember sitting in the little egg and going up. But when I got to the point, I loved the view like you mentioned I remember seeing the stadium. I remember being up top and almost kind of feeling like this way like hitting the heart kind of like, oh my God and my dog It's a fall right now. Like what's going on? It's like an optical illusion, but it was very pretty. What was your experience like growing up in Saint Louis as a child where you a big sports fan? Was there any type of sports that you watch enjoyed in particular as a kid? Oh my god, of course. So St. Louis is known for being a sport City Cardinals baseball. And st. Louis Blues hockey. I did grow up a Cardinals fan club. I wasn't as involved as I was with Blues hockey. I've always been a huge fan of the st. Louis Blues and I still am I actually just got back to Saint Louis a couple of days ago, which was the the history of winning the Stanley Cup. So my mom and I took our Stanley Cup popcorn machine that looks like a Stanley Cup and we put I think we just put like true-life it cuz that's all we had and we drink out of it to celebrate but and then we watched the whole documentary on the Stanley Cup and just tried to relive it because it was the best day ever. But yes, I grew up a page. Hard Blues hockey fan and I think that's just something that's in our blood here in st. Louis Blues fans and Cardinals fans. I've not a Cardinals fan anymore. Do support the Cardinals. I think they're an amazing team and amazing organization. But obviously I have to support my man. And unfortunately a lot of people in st. Louis are very mad at me for that long. He's my man. He comes first. You gotta celebrate the man and show support to the man, but I absolutely love that. You are a Saint Louis Blues fan. It was really tough last year you guys played Boston Bruins my home City in the cop and we thought that we were going to take it and you guys took it home and I actually really enjoyed watching you guys take home the Stanley Cup because I'm well wage, but I was happy you guys want and for the sake that Leila Anderson's you remember that whole story with the young girl that has that debilitating disease and she is a big sale. Yep. Blues band and got to go to the games. So for the fact that you guys wanted she got to experience that and lift up the cup and get a ring. I think that is worth its weight in gold and the best friends will come back and win a game like at some point. So I'm very happy that you guys check it home. Yeah, we've waited a really long time and it was such a cool story. I really hope they make a movie on it because there was anything like it. I mean being from the worst team in the NHL to winning back-to-back games to Stanley Cup champions was just insane that's never happened before and they're just such an amazing team and not resilient and they love the city and they love their fans and I think my favorite part about it was the parade was insane and not only am I right? Yes, of course, I went did I want to be in the crowd? No, but did I have to be a part of it? Yes, of course. I did it was so fun to watch. I mean the players are so involved and they woke. Crowd surfing they were chugging any beer that a fan gave them. They were just so happy. So happy for the city and they are really with the fans. I think the second one the club they came back to Saint Louis, they partied with the fans and they told the fans every day where they were going to be with a cup and the fans were invited everywhere. They went and got to be a part of it, which is really cool. That is super cool. I love following that team. I'm excited to see NHL. It does come back to season. They have been saying that it is sort of baseball every other day. It's coming back. It's not coming back. I said tires are starting to practice again. So yeah, it's definitely happening. It's going to be weird and I don't think they finalize the actual plan for how it's going to go. I know they kind of halfway did but not everything set in stone, but I don't like the way they set it up and I don't think it's necessarily fear. But I guess we'll see what happens. I just really wish there playing in st. Louis. Yeah, I really hope that things get going soon. And you're right. I don't really know what's happening. I've heard them say something about having Canada as a hub a lot of these people are paying actual. Um stadiums. They don't do that. I think for now they are I hope they decide against it and play in their home cities because it's just not really fair to the cities and not hands. And also, you know all of the money that their Hometown is losing because of not playing there, you know, so I think it's better to go to their home cities and I would love to see them play here. I mean my favorite things to do is go to hockey games, especially with my mom and I'm really missing that this year. I agree with you. I really cannot wait to watch some playoff hockey during the whole quarantine. I was actually playing old playoff games. Yeah, so did we I mean, we've been watching past games and I mean, I can't even watch the other day. We watched game seven against the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup playoffs and like we can't even watch it without getting teary-eyed because it was just so special. We were actually at that game the double overtime one that one. Yeah, so it's still like emotional watching it back. But yeah, we've been doing that and my family has been watching reruns of baseball. Also, I've seen baseball enough. So I'd rather see like the future games. I'd rather see my man out there playing than to walk past ones, but just cuz I've been to so many Yeah, I agree with you. I hope that we get to see some of the live games very soon. And I think it's cool that you go with your mom and your family members to watch speaking of your family members. Can you tell us any funny game is growing up in Saint Louis whether it be with your mom or your dad or I would hope you have any siblings like sort of paint the picture of who else and bowls is outside of being a baseball leg outside of Chicago st. Louis Blues. I scroll which we will touch upon next. I sort of want to know like how it was being the young Allison Bulls. I don't know. Okay. So my mom dad is a worship Pastor. So he has passed through the same church growing up my whole life. So we've always been involved with church and my mom is a Sunday school teacher and she also had um tutors kids with dyslexia. My brother is dyslexic and unfortunately the schools here don't know how to address that and one in four kids have it. So it's really special that she does that wage. My little brother is four years younger than me, and he is music artist and he is really creative and really talented. I'm actually in his little studio right now. I don't know if she can see he's like all his stuff setup here. Oh, I love that. Yeah, so my dad and my brother they're both musicians my mom and I live hockey. I'm kind of like the Oddball of the family who is really into fashion and I'm like a girly girl and all of that growing up. I was in cheerleading for eight years, which I think really inspired wage kind of like my love for pageants and public speaking and kind of being out there and not really caring what people think which spiraled into modeling and being wage fluence there and kind of those Outlets of my career that aren't really I guess the normal thing that people would do here. So yeah, that's really it off. Think I mean not that interesting. I did Growing Up Just cheerleading school. I'm sure I've got a lot of really funny and crazy stories with my family, but I just can't think of them off the top of my head, but I'll let you know. Yeah, you come up with any crazier fun stories. Feel free to short share them towards the end. You guys are listening right now to Ellison Bulls. She's actually from Saint Louis or st. Louis Blues. I scroll we're going to be chatting with that very soon. She's engaged to an MLB player, which you guys heard about that earlier. So shut all about being a st. Louis Blues ice girl right after you discuss a kind of likes that you just mentioned your dad as a pasture. I'm big into spirituality. I don't follow One Faith in particular, but I'm kind of I like if you I can't pick up my computer. But if I were to show you I'll show you it later on tonight like directly in front of me. I have like a Christian cross. I have Proverbs 16:3 in front of me. I have a boot off so very much into like the universe and being spiritual and meditating and praying in my own way. But how was it growing up in a spiritual family and what types of advice can you give to those that are experienced? And if they want to learn how to become spiritual and get into meditating. I know that you also do Bible reading correct or Bible study. But yes, I do. I actually do lead a Bible study right now. It's all girls. It's all women for now, but I might expand it to cater to everybody in the future cuz I have got a lot of messages from some guys to that page want to be on it. And you know, maybe one day I'll have him release some of my Bible plans in the study. But yeah, I'm really thankful that I grew up in the church and was raised in that way. Um, you know, I didn't necessarily have to I don't really know how to do this. But I it's not hard to explain. I don't know. I'm just really thankful that I grew up that way because I was installed those values at a young age. And so as you get older and as I'm older now, I start to realize the truth and all of that as like my faith becomes my own and so my advice to anyone that is looking to get into Faith or just really isn't sure what's out there is just to start searching, you know in the Bible it says those who seek me will find me and bring you just have to be willing to open your heart your mind to God's word and really dive into it and those questions that you have in those answers if you pray to him and you look for it, he will give you the answers. That is super special. I'm so happy that I asked you about that because I feel like now that it's 20 20 it's weird to say but I feel like not many people are following their face like they used to and I feel like more people needs to be getting into it and maybe there would be any less writing and less hate like I feel like people need to start crying again meditating again and just becoming one with light and love and I I sure appreciate that. I asked you that question that you were able to answer it for people that are listening but your stroke right back into the sports. You guys are listening right now to Allison Bulls love having you want to hear song. She was a former Saint Louis Blues ice girl. How is it being a nice girl? Of course, you just discussed that you were huge st. Louis Blues fan. So what do you do that to you? You must have been so hyped up. I was so excited. I didn't know if I was going to make the team. I took skating lessons for a while when I was like I think in second grade and I thought Is kind of one of those things that if you learn it before you're twelve years old just like riding a bike. You'll never forget it. And so I got like a Facebook ad I think for the trial and I was like, oh I didn't I forgot they have that. I was like, that's cool. So I applied for it. And then the tryout was actually like the next week. So I just went up to the rink and practiced a little bit worked on my fitness and then I tried out and it was so much fun. I got to be in the game and be a part of something that I'm really passionate about and that I love and I'm just being out there on the ice was so amazing and so much fun. I got to go to all the playoff games. I got to be a part of the Winter Classic which was so cool. I'm still best friends with a lot of the girls. Thought I did it with and I just some of my favorite memories are from that. I do have a lot of embarrassing memories from doing that as well that ice out there is wage. The same as figure skating ice and it's very choppy shoveling. The eyes is actually a whole lot harder than it looks so you have 90 seconds to clear the eyes or they'll be fine. So like you have to be like in and out but do a good job because it really does affect the game and the ice is graded by the NHL. So like you do get a score on it and you have to have a good ice group. So that's why a lot of teams just do like only men because it is a little bit harder for women just because it's kind of heavy. I mean imagine like shoveling snow in your driveway, but like doing it at a fast pace it's a lot like that may be a little bit less than it but it's a lot out there that you don't really see on T. And so it's very choppy and it's not easy to skate on and we took some girls that were on Team USA figure skating that would fall but every time I felt it just happened to be on national television and I became a meme and it just several times off. Sorry about that is awesome. I need to work for the me out there somewhere. I know there I mean they got really big and I would be like I remember after games we didn't have service down in our locker room. So I would walk out to my car after the game was over and think like oh whatever, you know who cares and then my phone would just started being like ding ding ding ding ding and I'm like, oh no either something really good either. I looked real quick on TV or did something really embarrassing and those are time was something really embarrassing. So it's I'm glad you were able to share that long story. I mean have to look at look up some of those memes but yeah, they're out there or not for go find one there. What were some of your favorite experiences being nicer all obviously you had some fun cheap ones where you fell off his lips don't like a lot of the girls felony a nice stuff like you made a lot of great friendships being a nice girl are any of these ice girls actually going to be in your wedding party or Yes, actually, yep. I haven't determined my wedding party. But yeah, some of them will be in there. If we do decide to have a wedding party. We may just do something really small. I don't know I'll know when the time comes but I'm already in one of the girls that I did it with. I'm in her wedding and May so yeah, we we all have been really close and still stay in touch most of us live in different cities now, but we always share the same love of Blues hockey and it's just different. I mean when you're involved in the game you develop even more of a passion for the sport just because you know, everything that goes into it and all the hard work. I'm not just from the players, but from the I screw phony driver's everybody down there works so hard to put out good ice so they can have a good game. I didn't really realize how much strictly where the ice I guess that makes sense because players picked. Yes, they don't want players to probably bang up their knees or get their estate caught like a divot. So I guess it definitely makes sense, but that's pretty interesting. They actually grade it or games that you loved more than others like to do enjoy watching a blues play. The Bruins are the Blues play Calgary Flames. Like did you like any particular rivalry game at work more standoffish? And then also I wanted to know here in the Box things. We love talking about charity and giving back to the community. If you can talk about some of the fun charity events that you were involved with while being with the shack Blues team, that would be incredible as well. Yeah, so my favorite rivalry games were against the Chicago Blackhawks. They're a huge rival for all st. Louis sports baseball and hockey we obviously don't have football anymore, but we won't get into that. But yes, those games are always fun. It was like being at a playoff game. If it was just a regular game. You can't even tell who the fans cheering for when you're not in the arena and you're walking around because both fans are so loud Chicago fans drive down and then Saint Louis fans, it's always half and half and they're really fun. They can get a little too crazy. I mean, there's definitely some fights that go down. We always have extra security when we play the Hawks. So yeah, that was fun playing against the Dallas Stars. They also became quite a bit of arrival and those games are always fine, and I'm sure now against the Bruins we are brewing a big rivalry since we meet you guys in the state. And wake up. I'm not sorry about it. But yes, so I'm sure that will become a rivalry now, but we'll see and then as far as charity events go I did get off to a lot of really cool opportunities with the st. Louis Blues. I think my favorite one was an event called night of superstars and they had last the blue crew there and find Sometimes some of the players would go and some other celebrities and it was all kids that have been through a life-threatening illness or they still have a life-threatening condition and they got to have their their night on stage and they got to perform talent and walk the red carpet and they were all the sweetest kids ever and they were so loving and so often. Joyful despite what they've been through. So that was one of my favorite things that we did. You were highly involved with the st. Louis Blues during your time there and I love that you were able to give back to the community have some fun meet some future potential bridesmaids and best friend off as I was like all in all you had such a great time. And yeah, I think there's definitely going to be a rivalry between the Boston Bruins and the st. Louis Blues possibly even this season. I'm excited for her to come back. I know you're excited for Hocking to come back. You can't wait maybe we're down in Florida together. We were down to Florida together. We can check out some games and go to top golf or something. Yes, you know, we live right by black panthers Arena BB&T Center and those tickets are so cheap like I got glass seats for a thirty bucks girl. I'm hitting you up. We aren't going when I come down there. I should be down there in the next couple of weeks that baseball comes back but speaking of Charity and speaking of giving back. We're going to be chatting about your nonprofit very shortly. Right. Now you're listening to Ellison bowls Saint Louis native. Absolutely love having you right now. She is engaged to an MLB player. She also is a former Saint Louis Blues. I scroll you just walk all about her story and how she got involved and how she's a big ice hockey fan, which I absolutely love you guys just learned that she also loves Bible study and her faith and spirituality, please add us on Spotify. You're also on iTunes guys, please subscribe and you can follow up on all the brake tests that we've had and Allison's episode will be up there as well. What's your greatest your nonprofit? I know you have a nonprofit and it's called you Radiance y o u v radius just like you and I know that it's basically brand awareness to those with skin cancer or women that could potentially get skin cancer. I read something really interesting on your Instagram page and said it's a page. I don't even know so thank you for sharing lights of this the number one cause of death in women ages twenty-five to Thirty. So my question to you is why did you pick a non-profit off like UV radius right here here as you can see her website again Allison started this nonprofit herself. Why did you choose this nonprofit? And why is it so important to you said it's very important to me because I actually was diagnosed with skin cancer last year. I am a very lonely person. I mean you can see oh this cameras opposite of trips me out. But I mean you can see I have most like this so that's kind of a sign that you're more prone to skin cancer, but I did notice that one of them had changed and the only reason I was actually aware of that sign is because I worked in a spa for five years. So I was educated on that but I never learned that in school. I never learned that outside of working as fast. So how long Would a normal person know that they could have a life-threatening cancer if you don't know the signs, so I did have surgery on it and it was all removed, but it was very serious. I had 12 stitches and they took literally everything all of my skin that was there. And you know now I'm even more aware of doing self skin check, but you should always get checked once a year. So my mission is just to educate both men and women on skin cancer education and prevention because it is the deadliest cancer but it is the cancer that you can see in actually one in five people will have skin cancer by the age of seventy. So it's so important to know the beginning signs so that you can get it taken care of before I can become life-threatening were very interesting facts. I had no clue about any of that. I did know about the moles changing and getting your mulch checked out. I'm actually a very lonely person as well. I've actually noticed throughout the years. Works and I was just recently talked about it. I started switching over to wear one-pieces often now because as a kid, I used to be one of those people I don't know you did it. I would like lazur myself and life or oil and just like fake leg a freaking turkey and I was in super tan. And now I have all these like sunspots all over me and just like you mentioned I do go and get my skin checked off like I should do it more often now. But yeah, I've noticed over the years at my skin does change and it is very important to get your most checked-out. Do you have any obviously put up the website. I'm going to pop it up to you guys and guys so has your own non-profit is dedicating dedicated. Sorry to shedding light and awareness on melanoma skin cancer. So if you guys want information on it, here's the website right here u v Radiance. Do you have any events that are coming up? Like how do you guys shut awareness in your community? Do you guys have events do you guys dead? Money, what exactly do you guys do it? Usually Radiance for your non-profit? It is through events. So right now obviously we can't have any events with covideo Anon but I do have a job application link on my website. And so I've just been trying to get creative with other ways to get donations, but I just think the events are the most important thing that we do because it is something that is not fun. Yeah, it's memorable and people are being educated and becoming aware of what to look for and it starts a conversation about it. We've done some really fun events. I think my favorite one was called sun safety and surfing in New York City and we had a class called search set. So it's like it's kind of like surfing so you're actually learning real life surfing skills, but it's a mix of like yoga the same time and we did that on a rooftop in Manhattan and it was so much fun. And we had Moses after always have some really really good gif. Eggs that are high value so I love doing events. One of my favorite things is a passion that I have and so that's the number one way that we really educate people. We are directly we work directly with the Skin Cancer Foundation and they are also in New York city. So I go up there often and go into their office and chat with them and they always give me so many resources to use for education and I also part of our donations goes to funding the Skin Cancer Foundation and they do a lot of really awesome stuff. So they're the ones that have the official research. They rate sunscreens to what is actually protecting your skin the ones that are approved by them and they also offer free skin cancer screenings. They have a chalk that goes around two big cities and that's just that's important because that's the only way that you can really catch it in time is if you actually get checked is very important. It's something that everybody should be checking and looking for both men and women as you are mentioning it's dead. Definitely something that people should be aware of and as we both talked about I mean, he just being out in the sun. I wear sunscreen and I still get married him my boyfriend very fair-skinned very light skinned or something might be like, you need to wear your baseball hat and you'd apply sunscreen like some people are receiving more I think prone to getting it than others. It is a very serious matter. So I love that you can get with that nonprofit. Are there any ways that people can get directly involved with your charity and UV Radiance.com and there are resources on there to where you can request host an event. There's no Nation link on there. You can ask for more resources on skin cancer education and we provide all of that. So just reaching out and sending an email you could also send us a DM on Instagram that works to ourselves directly to me. Those are all the ways that you can get involved. Incredible you guys right now on this link to Ellison bulls not only initiate a Saint Louis native engagement MLB player was a former Saint Louis baseball, but you took her talk all about starting her own non-profit dedicated solely to people that either a have skin cancer and they need to find resources or be that are trying to prevent skin cancer. You actually started this non profit because you yourself found skin cancer on your own body and you mentioned that you wouldn't even have known about it. You didn't work at a young age because most people are not taught about moles changing and whatnot. Is there anything else that you want to talk about as far as UV radiance? That's really all with you be Radiance. We just host fun events and we're always looking for people to donate or other ideas on fundraising. Sometimes we do like a percentage of sales for businesses and things like that. So those always help but the main thing is just getting educated on skin cancer and getting yourself checked in and checking on your friends and make sure I'm sure they get checked. It's so so important very good tips. We're going to switch over guys, please subscribe to us on Spotify and iTunes at the boss babes ways to call off. Let's talk about lazy copas. That's actually one of the main reasons how I found you I believe I I think that's how I find it. I think I was on the waistcoat Instagram. I was like, you know what this girl is really pretty I like her but she seems very shows. I remember sliding into your DMs just sort of like chatting with you and picking your brain and I was you know, what I want to get this really cute headband, so I recently bought this super cute headband. I'm so excited to take it with me to flog When baseball training camp starts again, but yeah, that's basically like what's your involvement with them? And I know you have your own resale closet which is separate from Lacey Coba kind of tell people that are listening your involvement with fashion and why you were so excited to be involved with bicycle. You had some way one of my best friends. She started lace Eco and I kind of helped start it for fun. We were just, you know, we started selling stuff on Instagram and it was really her thing. So I was like, you are so good at this and you're going to be amazing then she got a store front and back I was a model for her brand and I just kept getting more and more involved. And at this point I have now partnered at least Eco and I am selling some items on there and I've been buying lots of different items and soon. I do want to look into manufacturing our own line of things from sole Seco is always changing. We've got new stuff off. Week and it's really fun. I love doing it. It's just a fun thing that we do and it turned out really successful. So we're just going to keep going with it and you can get shop at least, We also have stuff available on Instagram, which is just like seek. Oh well girl. It sounds like you have your hands full you have so many different things going on from running your nonprofit to work with our new house. I saw that you in a daily were you're redoing your closet or something, correct? And you you needed help picking out certain different colored paints if you guys ever decide on your closet so indecisive and so I have literally been on my Instagram every time I make a decision. I'm like, all right, guys, once you were three which one do I help you could just can't decide and like anyone who isn't involved with renovating houses service. Probably like literally all the colors of the same. What do you mean? I'm just super picky and I just like birth. Yes your way but the closet actually was an office and we knocked down the wall and it's not my closet that closet. I've been watching it everybody seeing like them like Alison gets her class or whatever. I'm like, it's my closet. But before you know it we're going to start moving stuff in and half of it is going to be just a Dana shoots. Like he has gained. We're Susan I do everybody thinks that I'm the one that has all the stuff and I'm actually trying to get rid of stuff because my closet style does not match my life style of living in a suitcase and I need to get rid of all the things I have but he is so passionate and so proud about his shoes and he has I don't know if I could guess like at least off like over fifty pairs of like nice shoes like Louboutins Gucci. Balenciaga's like he has it all like he is that's his thing off. I feel like the guys in our lives almost have not better style than outside. Don't get me wrong. We have you waiting with the woman me he's like the gas better shoes than we do now. Oh, yeah, he does bring but you know, the thing is with their shoes. They can wear them however many times they want and they say the same but ours like if you were a pair of Louboutins, they last like five times and then the bottoms are completely done. So that's the difference that is a big difference. They can get they can pay a couple thousand dollars for a pair of shoes and make them last whereas like you just said you wear a pair of heels The Rock Bottom starts to wear off a little bit. Thank you. I mean, that's just how they're made and not meant to wear. Yeah. I feel like they're meant to just be put up in the filth and crap. Yeah. So Lacey cold that's amazing. If you guys want to check out Laci KO again guys, like have all kinds of great items up there. This headband was actually purchased from there super excited to bring Down to Baseball spring training before we wrap this up. We're about to wrap the show up really shortly. Do you have any fun facts that you want to tell the people that are listening fun facts. It can be about anything or like a hidden talent that you might have that you don't really talk about that often. So a couple of fun facts and maybe a hidden talent that you have wage. There are a lot of fun facts about me. I'm actually more interesting than I may seem on Instagram. I guess the fact that stands out the most people is that I have two pet birds and I almost thought about having them like next to me during the show, but I didn't want them to be noisy. But I have two birds add any actually also loves birds and in our new house we are going to have a bird sanctuary outside and we're going to breed parakeets, which is totally crazy, but it was his idea. First and I am so in love with it because I'm the crazy bird lady. So I guess that's a fun fact about me hidden talents. I normally say ice skating but we already talked about that. I am pretty artsy on lacey. KO some of the denim that we have I actually hand paint myself. So that's just a little hidden talent. I have I guess is I am very creative very cool.

E77 - SENS TRADE AWAY ZACK SMITH, MASCOTS, IDEAS FOR SEATTLE'S NICKNAME, JIM'S FISHING DISASTERS

"Okay greetings everybody before we jump in earnest to the project today a couple of words on the sends news of the day yet another familiar name has been purged from the sands roster. Zach Smith was a clubs longest serving current player part of the leadership group was traded traded Chicago for Senator Artem. Anisimov sends really do appear to be over there allergy to Russian players don't they anisimov Nikita Zaitsev Italia Abramov all acquired in the last five months. Let's entertain for a second the notion this deal was made with the sport of hockey in mind. Smith is a center in a winger he six to two hundred eight pounds Anisimov on the other hand ten pounds lighter two inches taller some similarities both thirty one neither guys high end speed both at exactly sixteen twenty one of average time on Ice Smith Twenty eight points last season Denisov had thirty seven. I think that gap is a little deceiving no given Anisimov's power playtime and playing so much with Patrick Kane you give that hockey life to Smith Smith instead that gap probably disappears. I mean how to Anisimov numbers look last year alongside for example Magnus Pay Arvy instead of Patrick Kane. I do like an EC- MAFA as willingness to go to the net and cram in those loose pox particularly in the power play but here standing in front of the most of the time of the extra man that's going to be Brady could shucks office. Smith is a step behind in skill and finish. I'll grant you that but he's also better on face. Offs more versatile brings more toughness to the rink than Anisimov does us and he's a homegrown. I think it's a wash from a hockey perspective for those of you still measuring sends deals in that manner. Let's be honest. The sends did this to save cash just to Chicago declare some Cap Rome out but imagine being sack Smith now discouraged he would have been to be here this season. He's the longest serving senator coming off to horrendous seasons and another one coming up. Probably he had to say goodbye to so many friends and star teammates the clubs prime directive we all know is to save money. Smith would have to wait two more years for the club to begin its commitment to winning an unparalleled success and that's if he actually believes that promise the G._M.. Wanted him gone. Maybe the owner to actually putting woman waivers the new coach doesn't know from a hole in the wall. Now Smith is wanted. He's got a guy in Mark Crawford who believes in Chicago a better team. Some superstars commitment to winning thrilled for the guy and I fully we believe this Zach Smith. The two thousand nineteen Chicago Blackhawks will be a way better player than Zach Smith. The twenty nine hundred Ottawa senator would have been any absolutely deserves a tip of the CAP for his time here Steve Warm Project everybody welcome to the project lighted on a weekday podcast of sports and whatever I'm Steve Warren Law Jim Jerome Longtime T._S._N.. Radio Morning Co hosts denting the podcast wine now gyms in Edmonton. I'm here in Ottawa. Ottawa is so seventy seven hour things James Stevie. I am packing today. I'm going to wait for a week so it'll be a little sporadic. The shows I'm going to do but I'm going fishing so I was. I'm going golfing first of all I'm up. I'm up golf and going up to Sudbury with all my buddies tomorrow. I'll be there till Sunday and I'm going to the French river beautiful fishing area. I've never heard you talk about. Fishing ever fisherman's fisherman's rugged outdoor types fishing seems like the kind of thing you'd try and avoid well. I've been on some great fishing tricks as you know how lucky I'm with the first big my dad used to take fishing at the end of August up to the French river over from Sudbury sort of the last weekend before school and it was until if my father Steve was the worst fishermen ever like my dad was my that was a great guy super charming guy but he was full of Shit sometimes talk he was he would you would always tell people sort of about things that he had no idea about and listen. We've got a lot of both them. When you think about going that doesn't make free consents there how did you my dad was sort of teach us in the living room how to ski we were skiers and we're kids as well and he he'd he'd get them with? There's one of these little exercise things they were that it was a desk that you would stand on a twist back in the seventies just just see what twist back and forth to get exercise and he was he said really what we should have gathered us around to learn how to ski properly. This device rate here is perfect for it and he was twisting this thing big saying this is how you should ski like and I just can't go look I don't think so dad and he say motion at all the same deal at all this and he was the guy who would explain. They're gotTA teach skiing kids. This guy who could only turn left ski steve when he skeet only turn left and then he's he's going on this fishing trip and he's got this this rubber sort of sinker that you can practice out in your yard and he's he's showing us out of cast and every second one forgets to have you ever. You've casted Steve before the fishing run of course you sort of pinch the line and you pull the bail off the on the real right so the lines free and you just throw it out. It's pretty simple just just sorta like you're throwing a football just whipping out there and and my dad every second cast he would forget to pull the bail over and he'd fire the line and it was springing back catch someone in the shoulder and so you take us on this issue trip every year and he would he would sort of destroy the first two hours of fishing by hooking his line getting caught and so much sweater hook you know the the line we get all tangled and he'd he'd have to stop fish so we could fix this line and the guy would have to re Riggott cut the line it was just it was brutal and we went every summer and so I always admired him for that that he did this stuff off that he that he didn't like at all but for the sake of the boys you know we'll take him on this trip and so we did this every year and we're looking forward to it and finding when we got about thirteen or fourteen he said boys. Come on in sit down. <hes> you need to know something about your father. He said I hate Vulcan fishing. We're not ever going again was the end of it so anyway. I'm on my way to a fishing trip. So I remember those days cool. You'll be off <hes> probably be two or three <hes> shows. Maybe potentially we'll see how it all plays at. We're trying to find your spot while you're up there. We have actually got some Wifi. Maybe we can do some shows but they'll be at least a couple of probably where <hes> we'll have a fill-in co host. Hey so so <hes> well. I hope you enjoyed that. That should be fun. I'm sure we'll get some great stories Eddie from that particular trip but when we come back on the show fishing might be part of one of our stories. That's a bit cryptic but we'll get to that in a second lots of sports stories going on right now. <hes> do you own a home drive. A car travel run a business unless you're a hermit.

CHECK OUT THEIR LINK AT Steve W project DOT COM now I got a couple of <hes> interesting bits of Sports Fox News. Let's start out with a web poll though in that <hes> Seattle's a couple years away from its first N._H._l.. Game so our RB computing web poll today is what name do you think they should go with for Seattle's new N._H._l.. Franchise I got lots lots of options. Here's my pick though I can go first Steve Mile Out I was going to give the the names that have been registered by Seattle. Ownership groups are so you got cougars. Eagles Emeralds Evergreens firebirds birds cracking rainiers cracking renegades sea lions seals Sakai's and totems well first of all the eagles is taken Philadelphia Eagles is that wouldn't be the first time we've had two teams from different sports with the same name this Seattle rough riders. That's why should that's what they should be called well the one Ottawa N._F._l.. Team name there and renegades rough riders is not registered though Oh just you know it's been a few years before they doubled up on the rough rider name start Seattle. Sakai's is what I would go if I think I've mentioned that on the show before for and I go with that exactly exactly. I'm thinking that there's a history there and some salmon is the color scheme that they've got on their website right now. Oh No no who's who comes up who comes up with a team and says I got an idea. We're going to go with a Salmon Colored Jersey. Let the hell what the hell part of the piping who's picking this. What is is Red Fisher from scuttle Butt Lodge Steve Def- picking the name? I you know what Steve I don't like any of those names. I don't like any of them. I was sure you'd be Oliver. cougars well cougars isn't bad of course got some feedback online from the Web Bull Jerry Mercer Rights. I'm not a huge. Fan of any of those just like Jimmy. If I had to choose I go firebirds only because I love the guitars xbox Canada rights. I suppose starbucks is out of the question. I've actually seen one media guy decided decided that it'd be hilarious to go a starbucks not that because it rhymes with starbucks I get it. I get it okay so that was our web poll today brought to you by rb computing. We've had some nasty storms lately and that can certainly wreak havoc on your computers and electronics call rb computing today and they will help make sure your computers electronics are protected and now for a limited time get a twenty percent discount on all services for listening to come in and mention. They heard this ad on the project. Those are the magic words to get that twenty eighty percent of services the project RB COMPUTING DOT COM one. Oh six meant in place in bells corners case of the there's a Barn Philadelphia. That's now looking for money. From the Saint Louis Blues over the play Gloria Merchandise in dies that they used on the way the Stanley Cup. The storyline was a few members of the Saint Louis Blues were at a bar in Philadelphia earlier in this past hockey season and there were drunk is in the bar who kept playing Gloria by Laura Brannigan on the jukebox famous song from the nights. You're always on the run now. Doria do it more like Brett Hull. Yeah we went where where where do we go so the guys that were in the bar from the Saint Louis Blues they noted that <hes> No more than ten minutes would go. Oh by before some drunk I yelled out play Gloria and then Gloria would play again and they thought that was funny and it just ended up being adopted by the Blues and then the blues as they played as a good luck charm and then they have all this play lay gloria merchandise that was sold as well so now that same Philadelphia bar is actually looking for money from the Saint Louis Blues they want a piece of the action is not in a lawsuit mode right now but they have hired a lawyer and the lawyer has drafted a letter saying. We want compensation for this idea well. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard that is absolutely absolutely the dumbest thing first of all the song is it's not like it's not like they wrote a song in the blues used it but that's just you know what I'm doing Steve. I'm counter-suing. Okay find the blues counter-suing find the blues for we don't want you guys to be our fans anymore because you're stupid stupid so okay we don't want stupid absolutely GOPI stupid stupid fans and we're GONNA sue you for showing our games in the bar well number again. Remember this Philadelphia Bar. I don't care you're showing Saint Louis Games. We're going to see you. We never gave you the right you know. That's that's what I find hilarious. Their lawyer is comparing them to the Nike. swoosh this usage of this random song. It was place so here's the lawyer. The bottom line is they created this brand and supported the Saint Louis Blues and their fans on the Stanley Cup run other people are capitalizing off something of value that they that being the Philadelphia bar created. If you created the Nike swoosh Nike comes over and says that's a great idea idea. We're GONNA take that and use it promote millions of dollars in goods but you get nothing well the that's unfair now and just I agree the other way. If Laura Branagan were still alive or her estate you know if they he wanted to take a run at things. Even that would be a long shot you know lawyers lers still suffer Stephen Image of being crooked and money grabbers ambulance chasers and all that stuff and the reason is Steve Because of a lawyer like this a lawyer like this who says sure all represent you on this thing because this is a slam dunk this one here boys. I can take this all the way to the bank. No you can't no you can't so this is his name in these one name in the paper paper and it makes me bill from well. He thinks they'll do you think they wouldn't. I don't think they have a leg to stand one yeah. The lawyer knows that I think he's just doing a exclusively as the publicity stunt. I'll get my name at their. I agree. What are you on the Pike? What are you doing Steve? This is a frivolous lawsuits. Your honor I am sorry to waste the courts time here writing exactly <hes> BITs of Mascot newsy a fan of the mascots rural our old co host buzz no longer with us. I don't know if I knew anybody who hated mascots as much as he did. Are you a mascot guy. I remember that I'll tell you what stevie absolutely this is a U._p.. Of course was the great eight one in in Montreal loved U._p.. The Philadelphia Guy is really good but iconic the fanatic the other fanatic but hands down Steve Hands Down the best mascot I I have ever seen ever ever seen is the Chicago Bulls Mascot the guys insane the guys insane. He's hilarious. He's he can. He can super athletic. This Guy Youtube that Guy Youtube. There's highlight reels on the stuff disguised I I suspect he's called the bowl would be would be his name the boy but if you want to see a cool mascot they should take pay all the mascots should take a page of this guy's book well. The New Jersey Devil needs a little work. I'll say that the New Jersey Devil like most N._H._l.. Mascots get some time with their hands in the summertime and so they go to kid's birthday parties and things and so he was at a recent kid's birthday party. Let's he called the New Jersey Devil great name the imagination. There's no limit Steve. There's no limit here anyway so he's a kid's birthday party and one of the kids activities activities are fun. Games is to grab a like an actual parachute and it kind of flop it upward downward and then it falls down and lands on some kids and everybody giggles ha ha ha well. The New Jersey Devil was taking part in that and as the parachute fell and it falls on top of a couple of kids everybody starts clapping and inexplicably at that point that the mascot decides that now is the time to sprint away from the children like they're all in a big ring around this parachute and he absolutely sprints away A. and I'd say about forty or fifty feet and launches himself into a far wall and absolutely shattered glass. That's there and everybody in the rooms like why what just happened and I keep watching it over and over again on social media this video thinking to myself. What is he thinking like? What what is the play they're like? Why is that something that you think is going to be entertaining at this moment in time for you to sprint across the room and launch yourself against the wall was really really weird so the poor kids Steve there had a birthday party there whatever age they are eight nine ten years old and a devil shows up at the birthday party hardy Steve? I'd be petrified. I'd be petrified. I maybe the kids big hockey fan dental the devil with these children what's next what's next listen. Here's the Mascot for the the New Jersey hockey team. It's Charles Manson come on Charlie. Let's let's two years stuff when the kids Jesus you can't have a devil. It's awful for the children good. I can't I cannot imagine Sparta cat or <hes> what's the oilers mascot and they have lost job. They got a new what they got a new and I ran into the library tagger or something yeah. It's a cat cam looking at the oilers mascot right now. I've I've looked up. He's the worst the worst mascot maybe in the history of mascots what what's it called Kanter Chapman. He's a links or hunter yeah hunter of the links. What is that? How do the Edmonton oilers yeah aw maybe you could have put in greasy or something greasy the links you know there's an oil reference at least in there? What is what it's ridiculous Steve? I hosted on the jumbotron at the oilers games four. I got hired you know in the place stops and you've got those hosts now. It's time for the S._O.. What card's GONNA finish? I you know for the fans and everyone gets Free S._O.. Gift Card. You know those deals Steve Sure. I got hired Steve to do it. I thought this is great. I took <hes> back to forty home games or something like that. I said listen. Give me a pair of tickets for it and I did it. How long did I do it for? Let me think Oh yeah one game and then I got fired. Yeah not good not good stevie. Not You're not very family friendlier. You're not necessarily I made a mistake. I did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ran town here so it was it had the town absolutely wrapped every you know people trying to find them and they have to send that descend gold cards postcards and all that stuff you know people are freaking you can out about it but it was all over the news all the time and so I went into the crowd Steve my first my first break when they threw it to me and there was a guy who was about five feet eight inches tall wait about three hundred twenty pounds sounds had a tight ponytail looked a little rough steve looked a little rough right and his wife was a little heavier than him Steve and looked like she hadn't made about six and a half years or something I the joke coming now and I said here they are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Oh No that's a great lot so that was gonna so when I got in trouble for a little bit a little bit and then I went into one of the boxes one of the sweets. And there was a lady who was absolutely hammered absolutely hammered and I said we're GonNa put you on camera. I WanNa talk to you and so what we did. Steve was with unbeknownst to her. What we did is choose? She Goes Lemme just freshen freshen up a little bit freshman freshman off so steve she she brought a little makeup thing and little brush put a little more blush on and stuff like that you know she's and then Steve had a hard time. Steve looked like it looked like a cowboy China trying to wrestle a steer when she grabbed her lipstick trying to put that on her lips and it ended up steve a little high coming under so we filmed that whole lets you uh-huh so she looked like Bozo the clown at the end of this thing just trying to get the and of course what I did was as we know what you missed a little spot there. You'd better you better do that and we had our looking like a just a horror. Ah I said here's one of our great fans and we've through the camera and Peop- I mean people were roaring. It was just you can't is like an M._C.'s dream. Come True Steep when you stumble across something like this anyway so will at the end of the game. The guy called me. Thanks Jim. We're going to yeah. We're not we're not going to pursue pursue you doing this. I said why not well back in those days Steve That's when there were thirty partners of the orders and the lady I it's a sweet. I should've thought who owns sweet must have some money. It was the number one shareholder of the oilers at the time it was number. One part was his wife now yeah so that was that was the end of that bad timing if they if they were being really objective he could to say okay. It was pretty funny if I put the if this woman happened me <hes> General Fan it would have been good. You need to see the big picture. That's all aw 'cause I called her. I also said Steve as I segue back here. Backwards segue Steve A callback ladies and gentlemen the new mascot for the potential part. One of the partners lives. That was the end of that yet steve from a few jobs so I believe that I believe that yeah you know the speaking of Mascot Steve. You brought me back now. This is I'm fearful. I've got this pit in my stomach when my kids were a younger and I and I got to agree you you're driving around town.

You're off now on a Gulf getaway and fishing holiday. Are you going to are you able to going to be able to watch any of the British open when it's going to be it's going to be dicey is going to be dicey and I'm I'm crazy golf fans. You know so I hope so. I hope so that golf makes you Miss Golf Yeah. It would suck but it's on early of course that's right so you can. I saw the other day. The coverage of golf is so so crazy. Now I saw an ad yesterday that the golf channel is GonNa Start showing it at one thirty in the morning which is six eight hours as you know depending on where you are where I am <hes> so it's all day wall-to-wall coverage which is great but I love the golf channel. I really do and they're doing this profile of Tom Watson all week when he was it. Was Tom Tom at turnberry. I think was where he does. He lost the Stewart sinking a playoff <hes>. It was ten years ago but you know we've been talking about. Some of these athletes that we don't like in Tom. Watson's name keeps coming up. How how great he was represented? The game how classy he was and <hes> it's a great piece called Thomas turnberry. Watch it how cool this guy is even in loss you know it was a heartbreaking loss for the guy because he could wannabe bogeyed the last all to tie go into a playoff with Stewart cink and even in his press conference after you know people people were crying people crying and even started saying look this is not a funeral is not a funeral her you know super cool guy well is there a better gentleman like this sports have a better gentlemen that can you think of anybody who comes across as nicer and more gentlemanly than than Tom Watson has through his entire career. Well not only that not not only that by Europeans Gulf Gulf started over there <hes> but Europeans are really into this sort of respect thing about the game a golf and advocate and and mall sorts other stuff that we don't give shit about over here but they they really tried hold to that to the rules of golf and all that stuff Tom Watson Steve. I did not realize apparently singlehandedly. He's one five British opens starting back in the Seventies. The greatest dual ever was him in Jack Nicklaus in nineteen seventy seven <hes> the the dual was incredible got right down the last hole and Tom Watson one. He's one of five times but they adopted him as their own son. This guy was so cool and a bunch of players that the interviewed during the specialized saw yesterday. All of them said that if not for you know it was Tom Watson who brought Americans over to Europe it was because of him that golf exploded over there and U._S.. Players started started to go across the pond to play and I could you think of anything better. Could you think of a legacy for these guys when they ask them all the time. What's what do you want your legacy to be and I think this this is a quote that I heard and I just love it because it epitomizes a guy like Tom Watson who's done so much for the game a golf they named stuff after over there? He's he's incredibly embraced by all the fans and it says Steve at the end of the road we will not be remembered by the size warehouse where bank account but rather by how we influenced others and caused them to realize greater potential and I love that quote. I and I think Tom Watson epitomizes that you know that and the British on this weekend. I don't know if he's playing or not Steve. I don't think so anymore. He's almost seventy years old but but what a guy what a guy you know and I think you know Matt. Kuchar got killed. Steve got absolutely killed and social media when he didn't pay his caddy enough money and you know we brought up Phil Mickelson's name yesterday that that fans love him. He's been very hey cool he did he did one bad thing. Last year the year before when the Greens were so fast he was objected to that <hes> you know objected to the speed of those Greens endings bearing the P._G._a. of America for doing what they did and he he ran down and moved ahead of moving pot he was so pissed but he came back with big regret about that Matt Kuchar who had a rep <hes> how to re reputation of being one of the nicest guys ever but he was cheap he was cheap and he didn't pay the caddy enough money and he came back later and did and made up for this Matt coacher the other day talking about Phil Mickelson who pulled him aside and said look at you made a mistake. You made a mistake. Don't worry about it. It's not the end of the world and Matt Katcher came back and said you know what I'm cheap. I'm too cheap and I've really learnt from that and I'm not going to be so cheap again. I was a lesson well learned earned and I am now. I'm all about being a different guy because of that mistake and cool sort of cooling <hes> well when talked about <hes> in recent episodes about Egos and such and we thought the Megan re piano story story <hes> someone who's got may I mean she's obviously top ver- game top of her sport but this has been a very brief amount of time that she's been on that pedestal for female soccer fans <hes>. Here's a guy like Tom Watson. Watson who <hes> at his sport like he was easy like in his prime he was top three all the time and I never got that arrogant vibe from him once never a situation where he's going to sign somebody's autograph <hes> who's in a in a one on one setting and just sorta like you know walkaway okay get Outta here kind of thing I'm done with you or whatever just always had that vibe of of caring for his fan base appreciating his lot in life and and <hes> you know that quote you talked about off the top I mean what else do you need to know about Tom Watson Yeah Yeah it's at the end of the day we WanNa be known by you know by not all the stuff and all our money but rather by who by how we influence funds others and caused them to reach and realize a greater potential you know <hes> Arnold Palmer Tom Watson Jack Nicklaus Arnold Palmer that you know people love this Guy Arnie's army formed and <hes> they were just beyond class. You know the away. They cared themselves in the decorum that they had so although Steve I've been thinking about the repeal thing okay. We talked about it. Yesterday buried her <hes> and we talk about Matt Kuchar got drilled in social media and repeatable is down yesterday for or a couple two days ago <hes> the story was she killed. I didn't even look at them. Grab the soccer ball signed it without looking at them and handed back without looking at the kids and right and people were killing her including myself but you know what what if you're an athlete Steve. What are you obligated to do? You know what what what are you. What do you have to do away from the game? What do you and some of its Steve? I gotta say I'd be I'd be a little pissed that I'm under the microscope here all the time but some shit is just none of the fans business and you know really this. This girl gets killed. Matt Kuchar got killed in some of that stuff but in a normal day-today life life I should be able to do what the fuck I want. I should be able to do what I want without without fearing backlash now. That's a little naive to think but some of me thinks you know what I can do. Whatever I want I can I can without harming people as long as I'm not doing that? As long as I'm not a freak you know as an athlete I think some of that must be totally frustrating and at some point if I was them I might be telling people you know. Shut up shut up. I can do whatever I want. You can think of me whatever where you want but I'm allowed to do stuff that you're allowed to do all day long. So are you apologizing for your original. Take on Megan Rufino is you're saying no I'm not I think she made a mistake. I think she did make a mistake because of the reality that that's going to end up all over social media. That's a reality for those guys Wayne Gretzky who you know when he when he when he will he was always big it was huge from the time six year old playing hockey and a lot of it. There's there's no private time for the guy soon as he leaves us how Sti as soon as he leaves US House he goes to have dinner at a restaurant or something in no time at all. They're six seven people standing around us table or waiting to get autographs or standing outside the door with a bunch of shit you know and it's all the time all the time half. The reasoning moved l.. A. Was to get away from that when he played Edmonton. That was one of the reasons that was a positive for him not his choice to go to L._A.. But when he did he thought this'll be good I I can get my kids out of the limelight and that sort of stuff and it's true. He loves up in an area called westlake where there's a lot of celebs live up there because it's way away from Hollywood but every time he goes somewhere he's gotta sign. These autographs and I remember Chrysanthemum years ago like how about no grits how `bout just I don't feel like it and leave them alone and he said Jimmy Boy I. I learnt a longtime ago that one of my obligations allegations so I got my head around this is you can't ask me for anything if you're if you're at my house if I am in my own house literally in my own house. I don't have to do a thing I I don't have to sign. I don't have to post for pictures. I don't have to take a phone call. I don't have to do but as soon as I leave my house. That's all out the window. He said I have to sign autographs. No matter how many times I'm asked so that was sort of his deal you know his take on this thing that he figured out that you can fight it if you want but it's never ever ever going to end. You're certainly welcome to do whatever you want. I mean whether you're Meghan Regina Wayne Gretzky or any celebrity. You're welcome to do whatever you want. In terms of in declining it's absolutely free country and as far as consequence though from social standpoint yeah you're going to have to wear that if you decide if one one kid comes up to you and the camera in particular if the cameras trained on on this exchange and you treat them the way that Megan repea- no did in that moment then you're going to get flack forward I'll be protective though of the concept of while I think she had a bad look going in that particular video. I don't think that defines the person and and let's not forget Steve. She signed she did give the autograph K. A couple of a hockey notes before we wrap up the show today <hes> first of all William Knee Lander is gonNA flip to Eric Lindros number eighty eight with the leafs Lindros did wear that number. He was briefly Toronto Maple Leaf. I don't know that his career was anything more than a cup of coffee with Toronto but he's <hes> he's going to go to the trouble wheel. William Neulander is to actually pay for fans to get their jerseys requested crested with his new number so if you've got a New Zealander twenty nine a Willie's GonNa pay for the change to eighty eight. I don't know if really I don't think I don't think player should be on the hook for that. You what's cool he's going to do it. It's certainly consider it volunteered for it right yep to do it. Yeah good hear him. I don't think he showed either a couple of things with senator relations to them. Ghee Boucher is going to be a broadcaster on already s for the coming season. He's GonNa get he's going to be tough deal to get to the the the pre show meetings or rehearsals because he's a firm believer that rest is a weapon and the Anaheim ducks assigned defenseman Chris Wiedeman who was with the sense for a number of seasons. He gets a one year deal. It's a seven hundred thousand dollar on the three hundred fifty thousand dollars in the miners Wiedeman. I certainly wish that guy well because even idea what a great guy was speaking of <hes> of athletes and their personalities in their attitudes he jumps us on twitter one day a couple of winters ago and says I'm going to be at the outdoor rink and Kanada and about half an hour if any kids wanna come over and skate with me and there was a whole see of little senator fans who took him up on that and it was a great moment I thought so Chris Wiedeman good good guy glad to see us found another pro Gig in North America good guy. There is a good guy there guy they're cool and the orders signed someone today Steve. I have no idea who it was. I have no idea how long contract is that is big news so big j signed Josh Archibald of course I I was worried I wondered where Jamal was going to end up and that seems like a good time to call it all right Steve. I'm off tomorrow off my big trip. Wish you were with enjoy safe travels. <hes> welcome in advanced to the eastern time zone lovely can't wait Steve CFL Trivia Trivia. We didn't do any today now.

Postponements, absences and a packed schedule

"Our air conditioning and heating our trade comfort specialists are here to help improve the air quality of your home so call eight five five one hour or visit our air dot com independent the operated licensed in their respective state or county. What is up hockey fans. This is the golden edge podcast. The podcast were the las vegas review journal talks about hockey not happening at least this week. Because the golden knights were basically off because of a myriad of reasons that we will get into ben goats one of your golden knights beat writers for the las vegas review journal. Joining me on the other line is my colleague. Dave fain dave. How's it going man. How you been having seen you as much recently. Took a few days off a lock. The doors stay under house House quarantine do all those fun things. So yeah you know it's been a it's been an interesting few days but you know healthy and safe so far so that's the most important thing right absolutely. That's the key we will get into kind of what we're hinting in here. And what's been going on with the golden knights for the past week or so but i. I want to tell everyone that this podcast is sponsored by one hour air conditioning and heating are a new sponsor. So we're very excited to have them Please go at check them out because if you support them in a way you're supporting us also please check out. All are written content at review journal dot com despite the fact of gold night as we will get into in. You know basically a week as we're recording lesson will not essentially play for a week and a half. our content has stopped. we've had stories. Basically every day on the website including plenty of silver knights stuff leading up to their opener on saturday. So make sure to read everything that we got up there right now as great reviews subscribe. Whatever you podcasts. do this one. We would very much appreciate it all right so last week. We left off talking about the fact that the golden knights played a game against the saint louis blues without their nhl coaches. Things have only gotten crazier since then. So that was tuesday last tuesday. Five four shootout loss to saint louis blues because one member of the golden knights nhl. Coaching staff tested positive for covid. Nineteen turns out. that was just. The tip of the iceberg of the knights had their next game thursday against the blues postponed as well as their games. Know this monday and wednesday. We're recording this. On tuesday against the san jose sharks. Those are also postponed. A three coaches have entered the nhl. Kobe nineteen protocols. Include as well as i should say defenseman alex portray angelo and one player on the taxi. Squad there is no timetable for their return. This is the part where i also mentioned of while i did say that one coach the golden knights did test positive for covid nineteen. According to general manager criminal. We know why the other four people with ninth are in the protocol that covers a lot of things from positive tests to unconfirmed positive to being a close contact of someone. So you know. Just basically. don't make any assumptions. There is why someone on the protocol. The nhl does not officially give reasons why they just state the players that have made it. The team hasn't skated together since that game. Last tuesday to five porsches lost to the saint louis blues. They are expected to practice wednesday tomorrow as we're recording this before resuming their schedule friday against the los angeles kings. As of yesterday monday the knights have had four straight days of negative negative tests according to maccagnan and meanwhile while all this was going on the silver knights had their second exhibition game saturday and then they had a canceled basically right before the third period because a player on the opposing team san jose barracuda had a player test positive for covid nineteen. That results apparently got delivered in the middle of the game. Now it doesn't look like the silver knights have any issues coming out of there. They did not practice sunday or monday but they did return today. Tuesday and everyone that was in the lineup. For that saturday game was back on the ice. also their coaches. Many beaver rose his assistance. Were back on the ice with the team. After helping the golden knights out in that game against the blues last week there was a lot happening and there was a lot for us to go through so mean day will start with you. What do you make of the way kind of all this ended up getting handled from the fact that the knights play the game last tuesday and then had three straight games postponed to the fact that they ultimately wound up with five people in the protocol. Once again that's three coaches defenseman travel on a taxi squad player but all of those players at least according to our quote healthy and doing well i think the last parts the most important thing obviously healthy and doing well. And hopefully we don't see anything in terms of like marco rossi situation I was talking to somebody else. I might forget the term by basically you know. Markelle rossi's a prospect for the minnesota wild who test positive and had covid nineteen in november. I believe in is still having the effects of it right now to the to the extent that he returned to austria home-country basically to continue his recovery to give back to a point where he feels like he can get you know back on the ice in condition in start playing hockey again. I heard some positive things. But those are those are the types of things that you here with all this that scare you and you look at the list and the way that the nhl seem to handle the golden knights situation. I think from the from the fan standpoint. And i understand it. I guess is the confusion of wire. The golden knights games being postponed while some other games are going on in some other teams. You know have players added to the list. They're continuing to practice b. See like the chicago blackhawks. Cancel a practice and then add a couple of names to their list and then play the next day so i think just the fact that the nhl is taking it on a case by case basis that. They're not really being transparent. I guess as you would hope. Obviously they're putting names al but we don't know why we didn't get a clear answer as to the golden knights situation. I think we can. You know without being irresponsible here. I think we can probably at least take him. Crimmins comments yesterday as to it. Know quote moving from the coaches pool to the players pool as these are probably positive tests and that might have affected the way that the nhl viewed the the night situation and these games versus some other teams. I think that's the only conclusion we can jump to buy. I'll say this just from the bigger picture. I don't have any problem with how was handled. I think safety. I is the most important thing but i just look around to the league now and today. We see the situation in new jersey. And how it's affected buffalo and then in turn no the new york islanders in that game being postponed in just sort of the chain reaction that seems to be going on around the nhl right now. We saw kind of early in the baseball season and we had a lot of fingers and toes crossed through all this and you know at least for right now. We're seeing the difference between being in a bubble and being the general public in. What happens when you know. Teams are traveling and i guess mingling in the public in in just the general. You know to use pete divorced term. Lock that's gonna go into avoiding this and you know unfortunately for the golden knights. It happened early in the season where where they weren't able to avoid it. Yeah i mean you kind of hinting at the bigger. Nhl picture there are going to save that for later in the show. But let's just do it now on. The nights are certainly not the only team that is dealing with a kind of covid. Nineteen issues and postponements dallas had seventeen players test positive in had the start of its season delayed because of that they're playing now carolina previously had four games postponed as you mentioned dave chicago As i checked monday had five players on the covid nineteen related absences list Which as you mentioned kind of prompted the questions of will they have five players and are still doing team activities while the knights have one player. And they're not doing a the kremlin kinda hinted that maybe was because it started with the coaches and then spread to the players. But he said you know that's a league decision. I'm not officially sure. So that kinda goes to your point of we don't have a ton of transparency as to why exactly these decisions are being made. Only that they're coming from you. Know the top in terms of the league and its medical experts and then kind of uneven crazier note. Recently new jersey had fourteen players on the in nineteen absence list today. Tuesday recording and it's games were postponed through saturday and you mentioned where it gets kind of scary as buffalo. Had its games postponed through saturdays. Well because it played the devils over the weekend which is not a situation you want now. In terms of the nights the fact they played the blues on tuesday As of today no blues have appeared on the covid nineteen absences soda peers. That they certainly avoided any issues in their locker room. So far they've actually played games against other teams since then But you know as a whole the nhl has already postponed eighteen games this season. And were you know. Considering we started we've january thirteenth little more than two and a half weeks into the season As you mentioned certainly other sports dealt with these issues as well when they were not playing a bubble of major league baseball over the summer of the nfl this in the nba which started a little bit earlier than the nhl has certainly had its own issues and all of those sports so far kinda proven that. Hey you know. We're just kind of willing to push through all of these things and if we can do that we think we're gonna make it to the finish line. Are there any concerns. That you're starting to see. Dave you know maybe even not just the nhl going complete it season. Because i think it's certainly going to try. Its hardest to. I mean how skeptical do we have to be at this point that all thirty one teams are actually gonna play all fifty six of their games. Skeptical at this point. I mean it's a distinct possibility that we could have a situation where you're talking about. Point percentage deciding playoff spot or something like that rather than just straight points standings. I mean i think not to change the subject too much here. I think my one of my concerns. I guess if we're going to use that word or one of the things that jumped out of me about the last week or the situation in general excuse me as i take a drink of my water is what happened with the silver nights and the fact that a test came back in the middle of the game as positive at an ira. I mean reminded me of the justin turner thing in the world series in just begs the question of like. How is this system. Set up to where you're getting tests back in the middle of the game. And you're putting folks at risk and i've tried asset of killing the kremlin in get. I understand from his situation. I think he was kind of more. China answer from the nhl perspective as opposed to the age l. perspective and i think it's set up differently where you know it sounds like from the like you described earlier testing in the morning and when they get results back you're not going to run into that necessarily the nhl. But i just found that so. I guess alarming that you could have a situation where maybe and i went back and looked so like justin turner in his situation. It was. It was a test from the previous day that they tested in. That morning was inconclusive. Retested a second sample and then that came back positive during the game in. So i mean if you're running into a situation where you have inconclusive tests and things like that and you're not pulling people right away i mean then yeah i have a question on. Just what is the protocol here again. That's the age. Ahl that's a little different than the nhl by you know just to kind of put a bow on this. I mean it's i think i think i saw fourteen teams so far. I don't know if that's accurate. Then you go into like the other teams like anaheim had a game with the knights rescheduled anaheim has. They didn't do anything but their schedules affected by it. There's a chain reaction of domino with this. Everybody seems to be affected in impacted by this in if they're not getting the virus than know it's kind of circling around the division in. It's impacting the schedule. So absolutely. I think there's a possibility that you know we could see a by the end of the season teams having a different number of final games. They play and going back this summer. And figuring out different ways to determine who's going to be in the playoffs fishing and our trained comforts specialists are here to help improve the air quality of your home so call eight five five one hour or visit one hour air dot com independently owned and operated licensed in their respective state or county. Well obviously have to see how it shakes. But certainly i think you could fairly say things have been pretty rocky for the nhl so far in these early weeks. A day mentioned kind of some rewards schedules right there so the nights did have a as we mentioned. Those three games postponed one against the blues to against the sharks. There are already makeup dates for all of those sharks. Games will take place in february one. In mid-february one late february a while the blues game is going to take place in late march. And as dave mentioned the knights were originally scheduled to play anaheim in late february but they moved one of those games into march to accommodate the other schedule adjustments. The night had to make my big takeaway from these schedule adjustments is. We talked a lot going into this year about. Oh my gosh. This is a condensed schedule. They're going be playing a lot of games in a lot of days. Are they gonna get tired or exhausted. Now that's been kicked into overdrive at the start of the year. When the puck was i dropped the knights were scheduled to play fifty six games in one hundred sixteen days so very close to you know to game or a game every other day essentially now because they basically are going to go a week and a half between games because they played the blues last tuesday. They won't play again until this. Friday against the los angeles kings. The nights are gonna play forty nine games a ninety six days which is slightly more a game every other day. Just straight up dave. How difficult to we think. That's now going to be the fact that they're already condemned schedule. Has a really really gonna start to squeeze some of the questions that you've been asking players you know before this little pause that we had is just about you know if they're feeling sort of the pace of the schedule and things in it's only going to get us more high impact i don't know what the right the right phrases but i mean march is brutal. I mean if you buy pull it up and you know for listeners. Pull it up. I mean especially you can pick different points out like march nineteenth because that's where there was a game on the twenty second that was added so you go from march nineteenth through twenty seven th. That's five five games nine days. If you want attack on a few few days you can go seven games and thirteen days to end the month. You've got a back to back where you're at the kings. I mean you come home and play the blues ego colorado. I mean that whole month know. You're at san jose early in the month where there's a back to back. You've got back to back at saint. Louis where sounds like they could potentially even have fans now for outlets betray angelo's return march twelfth third. So i i mean i didn't congress up exactly in terms of how many games just in march right that's where i think it's really going to be jam-packed and we can talk about this in the second too but i think that's where we're going to start to see some other guys and they're gonna lean on some other folks whether it's taxi squad or maybe even some some of these h. l. Kids that to get caught up in in. Fill some of these some of these roles and log in eat some of these minutes as well. Yeah so by my count. The seventeen games in a thirty one day month of march. I mean it's just crazy and they're you know have quite a bit of travel involved in that too including a back to back where in l. a. and then have to play saint louis the next night. It's gonna be a lot and to be totally honest about. There are definitely going to be injury and fatigue risks involved here and right now the nice while other teams have been affected by this is no other pacific. Division teams have had quite the schedule adjustment that the knights have had now the sharks Did give kind of a week long break. Because their games against the nights this week were postponed but of course nights are having essentially a week and a half break and the blues were still able to move onto the next team on their schedule. Despite the fact. That the thursday game against the knight's got postponed to see whether other teams are affected or whether the nights are going to end up being kind of the ones that are left really really dealing with this crunch also feels like the right time as we're talking about how many games they're going to have to squeeze in town that could be a fatigue and injury risk. Their death is already being challenged here. Brayden mcnabb went on long term injured reserve last time we recorded with a lower body injury that he suffered in that blues game. So that means he's out until at least february twenty seven. That's the first Game he can return for under the lt. I are rules of coming cutting. Recruitment didn't guarantee that he'd be back he just said he'd be reevaluated when he's eligible to return If you add that into portrayal as absence and you know we just mentioned. We don't know exactly how long alex angelo will be out for. He might even be back friday. We don't know but if he's not back that means the nights would be out there top defense pair for the foreseeable future. So how do we think. They're going to navigate these. You know i guess near term losses dave as you kinda hinted at the fact that they might have to be dealing with pulling guys in and out of the lineup just for injury in the rest reasons the entire rest of the insulin. Start with Earlier i had mentioned there was a phrase i was trying to think of so. It's long haulers Which i bring it up in the context of portray angelo. Because if and i say if because we don't know if he has a positive if he is in fact dealing with covid nineteen you would hope that there's not the long term effects that you wouldn't see anything like mark arasu that hopefully knock on wood you would. i guess. Presumably you would see a situation like the knights had in november where they confirmed that for players tested positive and we didn't really hear about anything. In terms of the facts we heard about the players coming back and skating group for like five weeks or so leading into training camp so you would assume that the four in that case were able to recover and you know again. Knock on wood. It hasn't affected them long term. I just just. I think that's the most important thing here. Like yeah we. Let's talk about hockey and that's cool but at the same time there is somebody's health you know involved in this and if we go back to what Texted to jim. Thomas of the saint louis post dispatch last week. He said he had mild symptoms at the time. So you can jump to your conclusions and you would hope everything's okay and based on kelly crimmins comments which you said earlier earlier. Excuse me about you know everybody being able to recover and on the mend. You would hope that that's short term. Obviously we've seen you know nick. Holden brought up. I think that's sort of the effect of brayden. Mcnabb going on our and nick holden sort of being first in line after that it'll be interesting and and somebody asked me earlier about. This and i was a little hesitant to start. You know speculating because without being irresponsible again and jumping to conclusions. There's a player on a taxi squad that is also in the covid protocol. Now we don't know if he tested positive or if that's contact tracing issue maybe it's defenseman. That had contact tracing with a tarantula or something like that we don't know but if that affects their ability to say install nick haig into the lineup or dylan cognition. If they want to make sure that they're sticking righty. Righty or something like that can go. And you need to fill his spot that way. I'm a little a little hesitant to start jumping to to those sorts of prognostications without really knowing the taxi squad players and obviously killing kermit didn't disclose that but i think at least in the short term. We can talk about nick holden and you know him being in the mix and then all things being equal. I think you would probably go back to seeing some way shape or form of the zach. Whitecloud mccaig pairing. And then you know we could maybe see. The debut of dylan cog without point. We'll have to see obviously approximate back tomorrow. So we'll get a clear picture. Obviously who is and who is out there. Quick back to something you mentioned earlier. The knights had four players has positive in november and You know pete deboer told me about a month or so later that one of those players did have like fairly significant dems that didn't require hospitalization or anything but did kind of basically knock the player out for a little bit and so you know with that in the whole marozzi thing. I think it's just know hammer home the point that i'm sure a lot of people don't need this point but that this is something to take seriously in there. This is something that can have long term effects and obviously even potentially just short-term effects even after players come back coming you look at the. nhl's cova protocol that believe. It says that if you test positive you're not even supposed to work out for you know two weeks basically that you're just kinda supposed to shut it down so it would. Obviously if that were to be the case take you some time to get yourself back up to speed. So there's just a myriad of ways the guys can be affected by this as you pointed out dave through the key is just to make sure these people are healthy. Not just for 'paki but for life and moving forward. I think you know we all know you know people who've had it You know or know people that know people that have had it or whatever it might be and we've seen i think the effects of not firsthand secondhand neo between you and me certainly so you know i think anytime you're dealing with this and it's a health issue and i i mean again i'll circle back to my comments earlier about just the nhl in general. And you know it's funny. Because i know everybody rips on this phrase abundance of caution and it's you know it's easy to I hope. I never hear this phrase ever again and like i get it. I understand but you know what there's there's a reason that that the nhl on these teams and everybody is. Is you know using an abundance of caution because it's Virus like without you know. I'm not going to get political. I'm not gonna get into whatever but you can just you know. The numbers are the numbers. The impact is the impact. And i think anything that the nhl does to try to minimize this and for the most part looks like the golden knights were able to keep their situation under control. You know the three coaches probably popped up within a couple of days. You know as kelly mckerman said it was yesterday. Four straight days with no negatives. We didn't seem anybody else. You know on the list today other than alex portray angelo. So you know. I guess if you're going to have protocols in place and you know that this is going to be an issue at some point you know maybe it worked close to the way that they hoped it would work in terms of keeping up everybody's separate and not having a complete outbreak. You have to reschedule three games. You know to avoid a long term problem than at least maybe in the case of the golden knights. Their actions worked. Yeah we'll have to see what the the short term and long term effect of those actions will end up being because we've talked about. The knights will be back on their practice rink tomorrow wednesday as were recording this they will be back in game action friday against the los angeles kings. They will also play the kings on super bowl sunday. Believe it or not if those games go ahead as scheduled and then as we talked about they are just right back in the mix of things. Because they're going to play a lot of hockey in a pretty short period of time. So it'll be interesting to follow all of that.

The Vance Crowe Podcast

Shaun Newman; Hockey, meditation, dreams and connecting others.

"But i read read. Tim tamashiro book who i just interviewed and in his in his book he said meditation was immediate and so i tried it and it was immediate like i was stressed out. One day hell you before we started here. I was stressed out and it just calms you down and and for me. That's a really really good thing now. I'm jeremy la cash a retirement community. Ceo living in eureka. And you're listening to the vance crow. Podcast welcome back to the podcast. I'm you're here today. We interview former professional hockey player. Now prolific podcast. Or sean newman. Sean is a hell of a nice guy and one of those people that jumps into life with both feet if you look into anything that he's working on whether he's raising money and i mean hundreds of thousands of or organizing bike rides across canada. He's one of those people that just makes you feel like not. Only i should be doing more. But i wanted to do more so i have a blast of a conversation with him. We talk about everything from novels and books to dreams and what it was like to be a hockey player that traveled around the world. And is he going to let his kids play hockey. Even though there's concussions and fights and all those things. I absolutely love sean. Newman and his podcast. So if you're done checking out this podcast go check. His out in particular are vance crow podcast listeners. Might like the one with quick dick quick. Dick has been a two-time guests on my podcast. He's been a guest on shaun's podcast in he. Is that magic link that Brought the two of us together. That sean and i talked quite a bit about in the end so Before we get to the interview. I want to mention that sean talks a couple of times about the book club which were reading jurassic park. And if you would like to quickly finish up that book we're going to talk about it. On the last sunday of the month you can learn more by going to vance crew dot com slash podcast and check out the link to the book club and he also talks about the articulate ventures network which is a place that sean joined and is now a full member of where we get together. We practice speaking. We share ideas. People put up business problems. They're facing they are right workshops. There's all kinds of things and really it's a place where we've set it up so that you can have a little bit of shelter from the storm and be around people that are trying to achieve their goals and some other people around. That can help them. Whether it's by giving them real candid direct feedback or just being a celebratory person that wants to support other people striving for great things. People like sean are there and i hope you will join us to know that it is open to any and all and the only place we ever talk about is here on the podcast. Because we're not trying for growth. We're trying to find people. That really wanna be a part of a group and i think that could be you so considered going to network dot articulate ventures to sign up for the network all right without further ado. Let's go to my interview with my man sean. Newman sean newman. Welcome to the podcast. Well thanks for having me. That's honored well. You are a hockey player turned. Podcast turned giant philanthropist. You're able to generate a lot of energy to get people behind on charity. But let's start with hockey. Because it's something that i know nothing about. You're going to explain the game of hockey to someone that has never seen ice before. How would you do it. I would say it's something similar to soccer except on ice with frozen puck. I mean the rules. Don't go hand in hand but you kind of get the general gist rate. We're trying to stick the rubber puck in the opposite ends goal team. Scores more wins. So you went all the way up to playing professionally. And i think the only people that do that are people that are willing to dedicate huge amount of time and energy in their soul into it looking back on everything that took to get where you got. Do you have any regrets. God no no. They were a some of those. Were the best years of my life hockey. Show me different parts of the world. That if i had been just traveling i man never got to see plus when you play hockey for a town or city. You're there for long periods of time. So you kinda get a feel for different parts of the world and what makes their cultures and people tick and yeah hockey in essence taught me elbow teamwork and leadership and and tommy very valuable lessons introduced me to my wife. I mean nine. I hold you know even the success. The podcast has come from my hockey background. And so if anything no regrets if anything. I'm very thankful to the game hockey and old old timers the tell me all the time. Now that it's my time to give back. And i didn't under- i didn't understand that vance until you get a little bit older and i'm saying this now is close in on thirty five. What they mean as they after. You're done playing. There's this window of opportunity where you can coaching mentor. Kids and essentially pass down those lessons. That hockey has given me and now you can give it to the next generation. That's the culture of hockey in it. It's it's honestly it's beautiful thing. How far did you get in your professional career. Honestly not that far further than a lot of people but like you know. I think most hockey fans you know. You're in saint louis saint louis blues or the nhl while if you're comparing me to the nhl not even remotely close. I was a drop in the bucket compared that But i still got to spend three years in junior high which is considered tier two here in canada. Very good hockey You play from you know essentially sixteen seventeen to your twenty twenty one and then i played four years of collagen not division one division three but once again very good hockey in wisconsin and then i went over to europe for i call it a cup of coffee play in finland for about half year and it was you know two steps below the top league but still very good hockey and so i went far but i mean was i close to play in with brett hall and wayne gretzky and now mccain is for the saint louis blues back in the day no but i had a lot of fun doing it. Hockey's one of those sports that now that everybody talks about things like concussions. You know i used to be. When i was high school that everybody wanted to play football and they wanted to participate in this tradition. But now i know very very few adults that want to put their kids on football team because of the fear of concussions. That does not appear to me to be. What's going on in hockey. It doesn't appear that people that played are now worried about their kids. Am i missing something. Because i'm not actually acquainted with the hockey world. Concussions is a huge a dilemma problem across a lot of different sports. Certainly in hockey. It's there but i played all my life. And i don't know maybe one concussion. Maybe but i can't remember getting a concussion. Not i mean not that you would but i just mean like i never got my bell rung hard enough where that happened now. There are certain guys that have had several. Have to leave the game because of it. But you know football's a sport that's helmet on helmet helmet on helmet after play after planned for player hockey. Big hits but even the big hits. Now it's even more of an game where it's speed and skill and the hitting just as taking a back seat and everybody always looked at the fights and said ali concussions from come from. I've been in a handful fights and never ever had any issues and sort of me concussions. Yeah they're sure they're relevant and hockey and they're trying to help reduce as much as they can but lots of the concussions. In hockey come off harmless plays so as a parent. I'm not concerned about my my kids ever playing hockey. I i think the the value of playing the game greatly outweighs the risk. It almost seems to me that there's way more tradition that remains in hockey. That just doesn't exist in the same way in american sports the way that it did maybe ten or fifteen years ago not not just with hockey. I mean it seems like in the. Us people have transferred to different sports. If you're a football player before now you're encouraging your kids to play soccer if you were playing soccer and now you want them to run further and further away from what they're doing but when i watch hockey players it seems like it is a quintessential part of their becoming apparent when they strapped their kids on skates and start teaching him how to move around the ice two years old. We had our oldest. And you know he didn't escape by any stretch the imagination but yeah i. I don't know. But i listen up here in canada. It's it's life. Hockey is life right like Either reports that are definitely gaining a lot of traction in canada but in small town. You know i'm right on the border alberta saskatchewan where for eight months of the year. It's cold for probably six or seven months of the year. You can literally pick any pond you want and go skate on it is just. It's a. it's a pastime. That's ingrained in our society and it's it's just every kid tries their handed hockey summer better summer worse and and for the most part i mean what it provides. Kids is an opportunity to be part of a team and around like minded individuals in unreal. Sport it strikes me. Now that i've gotten to know a lot more canadians. The last few years. I've gotten to travel there. I've gotten to meet you and several others. That fighting is part of hockey. Like it's one of those things that when you meet canadians you don't think of them as fighters but you you know people like you had said watch hockey hoping that. Something's going to spark off a fight. Why is fighting a part of that game the way that it isn't in other sports. It's it's funny that you can take the nicest individual vance right. Put vance crow walking around. Is he gonna go club somebody now. You put a set of skates on them and lots of people talk about how the mentality changes right. There's a there's an aspect of respect in in the game and so if you are an abiding by you know so-called respect one of the ways to solve that is to drop the mets and does them up and and do that right It's another way of showing You're sticking up for your team and your part of the team right like somebody gets run over some guys being rough on your players and and you want to stick up for them. It's just part of the game. Now i will say like fighting is quickly Not that the old guard wants to see it go anywhere but it's quickly leaving the game. There's hardly you know as as much fighting as there once was. But i don't know it's it's a form of like how. How far back do you go back in. Gladiators were thing and people showed up to watch them. Duke it out right like it's part of our society and it's just a form of the game that was culturally accepted and is now just got a little bit of a taint to it. And they're just trying to find a way to gracefully. Let it slide away into the past and you know if a guy drops his mitts every tenth game. That's okay but we really don't wanna encourage it and we really don't want anybody getting hurt from it the other day. I was Strumming through twitter. And there's this guy named rob henderson. Who i've had on the podcast. But he's just this great he he tweets all these psychological papers and and one of the ones that he posted was a psychologist saying. We've all stood on the edge of a mountain with another person and had this inkling of an idea. I kind of want to push that other guy. And when i i read that i was like no. That's why i don't like to stand on the edge of a mountain with somebody else but then you start thinking about other scenarios really. The psychologist was saying we have this demon inside of this nature. That says there's some chance for you to take advantage of this other person. You're much stronger. And they're much weaker. And you could do something. I don't know if other people feel this but i definitely had that like i could just grab this guy in crush him but then you know what am i doing. Why am i thinking this way and that kind of is what hockey seems like to me like there's a guy skating on there and if i clipped him he is going to go flying across the ice and hit the wall. It was it was. That's one way to win right hockey's just like any other game. You want to win. Don't you wanna win vance. Don't you want to see your team win. While one of the ways you be the meanest toughest sons a bitches out there and you walk in anyone building and you show them respect and if they want to go you drop the mets and you beat the crap out of him and and that that's the way it is right and in the game for a long time that was accepted so you know instead of building still teams. You'd have a few guys can put the puck in the net and the rest of your team was built to withstand the other teams grit and determination. And that's that's fine but now the game is changing. It really is. It's not nearly like that anymore. But i don't know like you talking about battling with your inner demons on whether to be good or bad. I think we all got that like absolutely. We do the The striking thing. When i was looking into ios doing some research because i was like man. Sean newman has this podcast and if you listen to it he asks some of the most interesting and interested questions i've ever heard so i was like digging through the internet and one of the things that i found about you was there kept being people like sean newman. Hockey player is a taurus. And i was like way in the world is is horoscope have to do with anything. Are you familiar with this. So there is a bunch of people that talk about. You're taurus and that your style was very much that way. You're loyal and strong. But then when the anger comes out you're like a raging bull and that's the the mechanism that used and i thought i didn't realize that astrology was so closely tied to the game of hockey while you're the first person to bring that out blah vance. I've never heard that pages into google. Search where where those up for you to see your well. I appreciate the first couple comments. And i have inherited my father. Which is you put skates on me. And i just put vance. You're on my team. I'm protective i. I want to. I don't want anybody get hurt. And i wanna make sure that you know we pull together as a group. The quickest way to pull together as a group is the stick up for one another right it shows camaraderie and it brings everybody tight and then as soon as you do that. Nothing's gonna break you and you go into to put in quotes war because it's not actual war but it it's a form of competition where you're all with a common goal and a common cause so yeah i mean everybody home. My good friends know me as as emotional guy. I'm guided by emotion. And i think probably a lot of us are we like to. I like to control it a little bit. Because i don't want wanna burst out all the time but that's funny tourist. I'm a tortoise. I don't know that that's a new one. You know when you talk about being on a team and the you think about being professional player right where players get moved around and suddenly you went from the team that you were against to now being a team that you're on. Was that a difficult transition to like. Switch up because somebody else is deciding which team. You're on and how your loyalties lie. What was that like. I've always wondered that. So you're asking when you play for a team for acts and then after a year or two you switch to the next team traded or moved on like you got out. You're playing the different colors. One that you used to hate so one of the things. I don't know if i hole put a feather in my cap or what. I never got traded torres comment there right like i find myself extremely loyal so believe is a funny has a funny impact on people. And it's been one of the things that i've learned from doing. The podcast is as a young guy. I was told i was good enough to play better hockey but no team ever believed in it so people would tell me you play good hockey but when it came to try and get cotton all that. All the coaches said the same thing. You can't tell this maybe Sitting over there. I'm only five seven. Let's call it a pretty small guy and in hockey that gets overlooked very quick and what i found in hockey specifically hockey players is when a coach believes in you. We want you. We want vance crow to comply with us and this is why. That statement is invaluable. Like i mean. They will run through brick. I'll run through brick wall if that's just take our relationship vance. I didn't know him from a hole in the ground. What was it like two months ago and now look how much i'm interacting with you because you go. I really like what you're doing all my up. Sure like that's great and so that belief is very powerful so when you talk about switching teams. I put together my cap every team. I went to sure i had moments where maybe i wanted out. Maybe i wanna go somewhere else. But i never did. I played every team through junior three years. My max was three years at played all three years. His junior team in in college. Four years never switched in proli- only played a cup of coffee but same team. And when i came back to sketch one nine years with the same team l. Eight years with the same defense partner until he got a pretty bad accident could no longer play hockey. And so that's how i function. I think there's probably a lot of people function now so switching teams you know. It's all about the leadership of the group. The locker room everything else. 'cause i hopped in advance crows group and it's a really interesting. I was really interesting dynamic. That immediately makes you wanna pull for it and so in my world all teams have ever been on for whatever reason. Maybe i have some of the part to play in that you get in there and you see the good you follow the good and that leads you to where you wanna go. I completely agree with you about people. Seeing things inside of you making those things be able to come out and The example i always talk about. Is i had a mentor. Name pete. he's one hundred and one years old right now and when he has another birthday every time he has a birthday. There are so many people that call him and i've literally been at his apartment when this is happening. He has to hold two phones. He wanted he's talking and then he has to say hang on. I'm gonna take this other call. And he does this. And the rian like switches up and starts talking with this person and says hey i gotta let you go and everybody knows that they're just a part of the gears that make up the machinery. That is pete. But when i look at it really deeply and say how did he do that. It was because every single person that he talked to. He believed in one hundred percent. People who i would write off and be like pete. What is the deal. Why this person is like you know wasted time. But he would see things in them and bring it out. And i actually i think that in you like you. Listen to your podcast. That is actually what you do. You believe in people so much that it allows you to be interested in them in a way that i think is deeply uncommon. Well hey i appreciate that compliment. That that's a very. I hold that complement. Probably in some of the highest of overheard. I don't know any other way to be so. I can't remember what i've read a while back and i can't remember who the hell wrote it or set it but it was a boat you know it's just the way i look at life that there's there's two ways to to live life right. I always say positively spreads just as fast negatively you choose and when it comes to people i believe firmly everybody's capable good and that's why approach everyone is that they're all living their life. I think they have something in them. That can can can be pushed that way. And i think you can learn from everyone. It doesn't mean that. I'm you know if you want so to speak right like okay. That's fair i'll take that. And i add that in the dock at too but you know on the podcast if you pro everybody with the the mindset that they're not complete scum of the earth and they wanna do good and and everything else. You'd be amazed at what they'll what they'll say and what they're thinking about and lessons you can pick up from on I gotta ask with. Pete have interview. Oh yeah well So i've interviewed him twice and like basically by the time we got done at the second one. He was like all right. I'm done. I don't wanna talk about myself anymore. And that's totally. Pete like the thing that makes him who he is is that you only get snippets of pete because for the most part. He's curious about you and i find that he's almost like a psychoanalyst from the freud school in the sense that he's very rarely giving you advice. He's very rarely pulling up his own stories. He's just asking you the things that you should be asking yourself. And when i really try and help another person and i'm and get away from my own ego that i'm like what you should do should do this thing. And i just channel the inner loop the voice that he is left indelibly in my brain. I find that my my help is a lot deeper because really not about i think most people know the answers to the questions that they have. They just need somebody to ask them so that they're willing to take the time to really enunciate. What it is that they already know one hundred percent like. Sometimes you know the answer. You just don't wanna admit it because you know what it means you have to do right. Yeah there's this so right now. I'm waiting with baited breath. I've written this company. That's in spain and they do this. Virtual reality psych program. Where you go in you get to choose your psychologist and you go in and you talk to that that figure. So you've got your vr headset on and you walk in you sit down and then you talk with the person and then you wait a day and you come back and you put the headset back on. And now instead of being the person that is coming to the psychologist instead of you you are now freud and you're listening to yourself and then you have an opportunity to give yourself feedback and the initial studies that they've published on this rate the the the difference. The impact is actually higher than when people go to train psychologists. Just listening to your own problems in giving advice to yourself is vastly out competing people with years and years and years of psychotherapy training and i said to me. This is like something. That's obvious but i'm really glad somebody's proving is i'm really trying to get on their study to see if i can't bring that to Avian and let all of us try it out. That'd be that would be absolutely like that. Would be a lot of fun when when i when i first came back. It's a question. I should probably ask more of the hockey guys that i deal with. But there's this common when you've played you know anywhere between up until you're twenty years old to call it forty. Let's say is an average lifespan of a hockey career. When all you've done for all those years is push yourself and traveled and played in cities and played hockey. And that's all you know when you come out of it. There's like this this void of like now. What and i say all the time when i first got back you could do anything right like you have the world by the nut so to speak can go anywhere you want. But that's almost overwhelming. And so i i came back i I i started work with my with my brothers and my dad's company and just you know as job. I just need to make some money. And it was like two years. And i realized like i don't wanna do this restaurant. My life has nothing to do with family. Just has to do with the work like it. Just doesn't get me out of bed in the morning and so i hired a career coach which i mean. A career. Coach is become uber popular now and lots of people are doing at the time it was like it was kinda i was out of my comfort zone but what i found amazing about the entire process was basically. It was a sounding board because she really didn't say that much. It was a safe space. Where i could say whatever i wanted to say here myself say it out loud and go weird thought and then try and make sense of what you've said and then do it so what you're talking about there is exactly that and instead of just having somebody voice. Prompt you now get to criticize. Or critique what you've said. I think that's brilliant. Actually it's it's why writing is so powerful. Isn't it so you could write it out. Expend the effort of writing on something and then see what you've written and go. Wow there's something there that is absolutely weird. Why would i ever think that. And you can just almost immediately expunge from your mind like oh get that outta here. I think with writing. It's one of those things that when you start to develop the habit it's not like your life transforms immediately. But what happens is if you've started to do it for awhile and then you stop all the sudden you noticed the absence of it and it's like one of those things that like it's really hard to put your finger on how getting those ideas down. How like putting him out there or making them. Concrete is really gonna benefit you and it changes you so indelibly such as like a part of who you are that you can't really detect the change until you're like oh i don't have time to write. And then you find yourself being like chaotic and moody. Or i don't know that's the way i felt unable to get my cell phone stuck and then i started thinking. Oh i need to go do something more drastic when really the answer is no. Just get up ten minutes earlier and right right. you're shit down one hundred percent ashley. One of the things. I got credit to you is by bringing me into the book club. I'm already a part of the book club. And so when you're like you wanna come. And i was like i have time to read another book like i gotta be honest like four years ago. I was hardly reading anymore. I'd love reading growing up. But you know kids in work. And i mean i don't have to explain it. It's it's it's a time commitment. But i'm like you don't want i'll give it a shot and so i forget what her first book was now but it was good and the next one was a connecticut yankee in king arthur's court and i was like we're going to read this really and then i read it and i was like actually i was pretty good so when you suggested drastic park i was kind of like a. I didn't realize there is address park book but to like the movie. The hollywood movie. Why would we read that. And what drastic park has proven to me. And i kind of heard about this. And i just. I don't know if i didn't open my eyes to advance is like there can be really profound things in like not the simplest not that drastic mark is simple by any stretch but like dinosaurs coming back to the world is a pretty simple sci-fi idea but in that book there was a couple ideas that were just like. Wow that's pretty cool. And and i've read like jordan peterson. A couple of others talk about artem and how people get across their ideas through their own form. And i didn't understand that until your book dress park. Well not your book. But the club deciding to redress parkin. What a what a. Just i can't even put my finger on and it just it just hit me over the head reading jurassic park. How in my mind a very simple book a cool little listen along and the dinosaurs will be back can have these ideas that are just so i had to. I had to write them down. Finished the book and then go back to each one of them separately to like. Just dig into me and be like. Yeah that's good yeah. I'm right now. Really into this author named eric houle and i'll have him on the podcast. He is writing. He writes all about consciousness and one of the things that he points out about books. Is that in a movie. You have to infer what the characters are thinking based on their actions that are overt. So if you have a character that is like really angry. They have to show anger and they have to show it vividly enough that the entire audience can get it but you know. Human emotions are really complicated. Sometimes you show emotion when really what you're feeling is fear. So how does an actor. How does a movie show the both the emotional state of what the action is and also the thinking that goes behind it whereas in a book you can add in those lines that add the layers of complexity into what is going on with that character and so for the first time only in a book or in somebody telling you a story you leave your conscious observation of the other. Humans behaviors and actually inhabit the consciousness of other people. And that's one of those things that once you start. Once that starts to click in reading books becomes like more than just the two dimensions on the on the Of the letters on the page and far far more interesting than the movie or the television show absolutely. I just i go back to. I just didn't realize you could pick up so many good things from a book like drastic park. I always assumed it had to come from you. Know i'm a big fan of german pearson. Really when you read that book you have to put your mind in his mom you know. He's guiding you along this path where it's going to be like. Oh yeah that is a good idea where something like. Drastic park comes in like these. You know malcolm giving these long intellectual rants so to speak but in there is absolute gold and if you you know in the movie i almost want to go back and watch a movie because i remember his character and i remember having some pretty good You know him being one of the best characters in the movie. Obviously but i don't remember ever going like wow. That was a really good idea. And maybe that's because you're caught up on the visual and not paying attention to the exact words that are being used but in a bucket it is just so evident and right there. Yeah and in the in the movie they create in you know in order to be able to get the masses to be able to understand what's going on they have to put it into a a hero's narrative arc. That is simple enough for everybody to get on. So you've got the archaeologists that doesn't really like kids and the kids are following him around and then you know that that brings up this kind of should. I be stuck digging up bones of the past or should i be thinking about maybe getting married and having children whereas the book that he's not there at all i mean yes he takes care of the kids but the the the nature under which you can have the hero's journey and all of the different characters arcs are far more complicated and eric who i heard him talking and he was saying that you can do this with television and the sopranos are actually really good example of this they were able to figure out to show the consciousness of tony. What's going on with him. Run of sopranos fan. Did you watch the show. I'm gonna be honest. i only watched like hamill episodes. I've never actually washed it through. So that's it. That's an addictive show. But one of the reasons it's so addictive is by having a therapist for the mobster to go talk with you now can get into his consciousness now you can start standing hey. He showed that he was really angry. But really is conflicted. Or he's worried about his mother and so there are. There are ways to make a movie match up to what's going on with the book but like the book can do it so much easier. You know you can. You can say oh. She shifted uncomfortably as she listened to him. You know try and seduce her and all the sudden you're like wow. I understand all of these different motives in these different things. Whereas in a movie you have to like zoom. In on her shifting uncomfortably. The guy has to be really overt in his advances in order for you to understand it and if you're not those movies get pushed aside like the coach that doesn't believe in you and and the art house film that nobody understands because the director is being too subtle. That's fair. I tell you what i i. Just come back to some days. I wonder if i live under a rock vance right like or just slow or just never paid attention to it and in the last. I don't know it's just a different stage of life. I guess but in the last several years of started to pick up on things that were right there all the time but my brain just overlooked them all the time and now that you see him. It's buchanan's you can't unsee it so speaking of not being able to see it. I i did a little bit more stocking of you. You know. I really wanted to make this interview. Go well so i found your some of your social media some of your facebook one of the things that i observed about your life is that you seem to jump in with both feet you know. I see you dressing up for halloween with your kids. I see you posing for photos where you get in the in. You're in the middle and you've got your arms raised in your smiling and it just makes me feel like man. I wish that i could jump into life with both feet that way. That's that's what it appears to me that you do that you just you're just completely like the water's cold them. Jump in and embrace the fact that cold is now in the way you should live life. I mean i would encourage everybody to do that. I think too often and at times. I'm i'm the same. Tim and with different things. But i mean when it comes to life the best way to learn as as bhai getting in there and getting involved not by standing back and watching the game for a year ten hours whatever it is. It's like no. I want to be in there. I want to be involved. Even if i make an ass myself. I want to be involved. And i found. I went for a bike this morning. So i'm training for this bike trip. So i'm up at five in the morning and it is I don't know what it is. In fahrenheit but in celsius it feels like minus nine so it is cold and i went. I went yesterday morning. And i learned a lesson. I got turned around after about twelve minutes. Because i feel my hands anymore. I was biking and shorts. That was a bad idea. i got to gone. I got a big a jacket on. I got pants on. I never by combatants. And i got big gloves on. I'm like i don't care. I'm going to make sure that i'm warm today. And so i wrote to a light and look over and there's like this guy staring at me at five of the moral. the hell is this guy doing. And i'm like you for a second kind of bother me. And i'm like what the hell's the matter like. I look like a moron. That's fine. I know what i'm doing here and away. You go and a lot of times in anything in life when you're the guy jumping in the water for for the border city connects a few weeks ago where i pedaled it in the water right. A lot of people be like. Oh i don't wanna do that. And and maybe there was some embarrassment on my part like. I wonder how the video looks or whatever but at the end of the day. That's in my head. Most people are looking it going. I wish i could just do that. And i think anybody can do that. They just got to get over this little fear thing. That says everybody's gonna judging all screwing people think like everything's about trying to social media. Does it so well. I just look at all the the negative things that come with it which is like likes and comments and whatever else i just wanna live life and if i'm having fun with it and you know who doesn't wanna dress up for how we just because i'm a grown adult doesn't mean i don't wanna strap on. I did oscar the grouch one year with the wife and the kids and the kids think it's awesome. They see it and they're like yeah that's awesome and you know i went to A dance class. My daughter's dance. Do you think. I feel comfortable doing like ballet dance. Whatever with my two year old house. No but i wanna be the dad dancing and not the one sitting on the sideline because kids pick up on that stuff and i want my daughter to know that i'm here with and i'm okay looking like an ass dancing with my two year old birth three year old now right like i'm okay with that and i don't know that that's the way i lived life. I wish more people would live life that way. Well i think that's why you've been able to make a dent in the world right you. You set out to do a fundraiser. Where you're gonna raise fifty thousand dollars and then you did it and then then instead of being like well let's raise sixty thousand dollars. You're like oh the next year i'm race. What was it one hundred and fifty thousand dollars rate. It was something crazy. And then you did it again. I i got to be very. You're talking about the livestream so we did for the hospital. I hostels been very good to me. I'm sure the hospitals being very good people but the first year was. Can you imagine this idea to raise fifty. You're at shawn's to talk like this to people and every once in a while he's gonna turn the screen and have somebody over here. And i'm going to talk to him like this. We're gonna see if we can raise the money and we raise fifty grand and everybody was kind of like that kind of works so the next year malcolm rag here in town. Who's the ceo of the health foundation said. Let's raise two hundred thousand. I like what you wanted to. What and we raise three hundred fifty thousand. And i was just like i can't take all the credit for that. Hell i'll take little credit for that like we had a great team working around. We had more Irons in the fire to begin with and and just the way the community pulled in was amazing. What it does teach me. Is you wanna make an impact on the world. You want to put a dent in the world. Go do something and then do it. Well and tell people bought it right like. That's what we're doing with his bike trip. I've started out like well. Maybe i can you know. We both know quick. Dick gonna do a road trip to quick now. I'm gonna bite quick dick and i'm going to try and raise some money and that's just keeps snowballing into now. There's a group of six of us going to do it and initially. I was like know if i raised ten grand great while we've already raised thirty five and we haven't even stepped up pedal on the bike yet and i'm going like i'm trying not to stress myself. Oh it's fun but it's like holy crap. Now you're now you're starting to do something that everybody's gonna notice and i appreciate the comment that you think. I'm making a dent on the world. I'm just doing what i know best. And that's trying to bring some smiles bosnia tippety with this bike trip. We're going to try and help some kids out and kids are neared my heart. I got three of them by breaks my heart every time. I hear that kids out there. Don't get what they need like i. That's tough yeah i i. I'm struck by the fact that you actually take swings at things right. Like actually as i'm looking at all of your stuff i think man i really want to really feel like a good example is just jump in the water the way that you do and how do you do it man. I mean you've got three kids. You're a salesman. You've also got a podcast. Like how in the world do you find the time and the energy and the sanity to be able to get it all done while you know my you know my sanity side because you just heard me before. I started this what i was doing. I stumbled upon meditation. I just literally like in the last two weeks. I always look for things vance. Where and i should've asked you this right. Have you ever stumbled across something where you did it once and you notice the difference and i don't know if you have but i read t read tim tamashiro book. I just interviewed and in his in his book. He said meditation was like immediate. And so i tried it and it was immediate like i was stressed out one day. Hell you saw me before we started here. I was stressed out and it just calms you down and and for me. That's a really really good thing now. As for everything else. How do i make time for everything. I don't know i have a wonderful wife like wonderful. I run everything by her. that way. i never wanna lose my home life and then as soon as that starts. I'm going to pull back on. So many things will probably shake some heads of what the heck's doing to lose that and the base of me is my family and as long that's healthy. She supports what i do and so pass ideas by her. She's like you're eighty but if that's what you really want to do go do it. Because a happy sean is good for not only society but for us at home. Your kids see it. I see it and so she lets me get away with a lot that a lot of couples maybe don't but in san that was up at four thirty this morning for bike back home. Help kids out the door to work here tonight. I got a meeting at eight thirty at night. And it's just. I don't know i like being busy. I really like being busy. Do any my down nights. Yes but don't need as many as maybe people think who are. When when you say meditation talk to me a little bit about what that means to you. Well i downloaded an app head space. And it's the one on netflix. To has the big documentary. I didn't know that. And i kinda start watching on netflix. But it's just. I don't know i haven't dug into what meditation is or what it's supposed to do for you for me. It's four minutes a day. I flick on the app. This guy talks to a soothing voice and he just says you don't essentially breathe deep watcher. You breathe focus on that when my brain runs off ten times he brings me back in. And it's just a way to refocus on what i'm trying to you know. Be impactful on in the next hour in the next five hours and for me. That's that's really beneficial because my brain can get going seven different ways where. I don't accomplish anything actually. I just stress myself out and nothing happens. Yeah meditation for me was the the really forced me to have the realization that there are all these voices in my head things that prompt me to do stuff stuff that dissuade me from doing stuff stuff the voices that get me to give into my vices and that i don't control them and that really gave me a very different feeling of the sense of self like who are you if there are voices that say like hey. We should do that or you. Don't have to worry about that or oh look with. That person has that you don't have and the fact that you can't just be like quiet down voice. I'm trying to work here because you have this like sense of consciousness this sense i am me and yet there are these other things that participate in. Who who me is that like. It really starts helping you to understand like for me. Meditation was the the best imagery i can give is. I thought that the vestibule was the entire cathedral and then you start realizing wait. No if i follow any one of these voices down to their different area. I realize this is any normal business of the self of which i know just the tiniest little aspect of and i would never have gotten. There had i not. I had meditation where i started to realize like there. Are these other voices. Yeah you forgot one voice in there. The bitch voice the voice. It says you're tired aren't just lay on the coast or it's cold outside. Why don't you just you know. Stay inside and jaakko Jaakko will nick. He's the guy who probably has coin lately and and you know popular culture but believe me that voice talks to me all the time and and recognizing it for what it is doesn't mean. Beat it all the time. But more than i lose to it and i agree with you like he just got you got different things going on in your head. And it's and. That's okay and meditation probably. That's a chunk of its messages. It's okay right. Just recognize it and carry on with life. Yeah the stephen press 'field says that that voice that's like telling you it's okay calls it the voice of resistance and i found that just by being able to name that voice just by or the you call the bitch like just by being able to be like. Hey whoa whoa no get outta here. That's that's not. We don't wanna do that. We the other voices wanna do other stuff. That's not that i'm totally. I'm i'm with you on the fact that meditation was really important. And i kind of ebb and flow on the different ways that i do and i'm glad to hear anybody starting because it's like a hell of a it's a hell of a drug man. I can tell you that it is you know i was brought up. In a christian family went to church all the time Not a specific denomination. Like just like believing god and read the bible and be good to people whatever but but struggled with. Probably i dunno into my adult life was. I'd never talked to god. I don't even know you know how. What the heck would that even look like did duck. Would you think you're crazy and lake. Whoa that is a out of body experience per se. Meditation is the closest thing. I've ever had to spiritual where it's just like. Wow you can feel that energy like you can once a day. You can feel it and i don't know what that is but it's noticeable and i look for those things all the time because i think too much in our too much. The world is moving so fast you'd never even be able to you know stop and smell the roses per per se. But there's very few things that if you did stop and did it you could notice it immediately as you think about. You know the the prayer the you know the greater the divine any of these things and you talked about wanting to pass lessons onto your children your two year old daughter dancing when you think about dying or no longer being here. What do you want to be remembered about. You know van. So that's that's a large question Just worn. I just want people to you know when i go. I want people to come together. Probably have one too many beers enjoy the night and celebrate it. I'm hoping i give them something to celebrate right like that was that was a hell of a life. He lived and not you know he was taken too soon. Or you know or or you know like a man that was. That was a long ten years yet at the end it was like no. I'd rather the other way. I would rather when i go. Don't worry about. It was too soon or not in the time i had. I gave it everything. And i hope for my kids. I know this in my kids. They got part me sitting there because everyone that talks to be a mope. My oldest has said he is identical to me at that age. Which means okay. There's a little sean already in the making. And i already see it in my other two kids. So that means all like shawn's gonna carry on you know not obviously not me but part of me is there and if we can continue to do that you know like that's a lot of that's pretty cool and as for you know when i'm gone. I just hope people enjoy the time. That i had. Because i'm loving every minute i'm here man. That's the one of the most humble and like profound answers. I ever heard to that. I think there are a lot of people that think. Oh i want my legacy to live on. Or i want the but we are all clear if you get your name. Live on past three generations like. Yeah that's about as far as you're going to get and so to have it be like people come together and they're there have a drink too many and celebrate. The time that is that is awesome. I think that one of the gifts that you're giving your children and it's an investment in and you're doing it for other reasons is your podcast because like who you are comes out. Sue clearly in these interviews. Not just with hockey players like you know. I think you started out as a as a hockey podcast and then wanted to interview some people with wisdom and then kind of spread out to some adventurers and just kind of different characters out in the world but like your podcast is an amazing menagerie of of interesting characters. What are you pulling out of that. Why is it worth the time in the energy. You're putting into it. While i enjoy talking to people as you can probably tell when code when covert hit a month and a half where i was doing a more to podcast a week which to a lotta people seems like a lot and i was going into a dark place. I don't know what i mean by dark place. I don't mean like i don't mean like i was gonna do harm to myself or others or anything that i just mean like depressed was gonna you know be more negative than positive. Let's say and so what i did. Was i kind of flipped on its side and chose right then and there i was gonna do more podcasting so now. I've been doing two week for over a year and for me. The podcast is something. That just i get excited for every single day right like i. I enjoy doing this i enjoy. I never thought. I could enjoy something as much as hockey until i stumbled on podcasting and interviewing people and finding different people and and so to me. That's that's what the podcast gives me all the time it gives me lessons to learn and think about and then research and force me to read and and get better and that's been the. I don't think that was the goal in the beginning. In the beginning it was like a cell phone and see where this goes right. And you're right. It started off the law hockey people. But i had the forethought at the start vance to name it my name so that it could never ever ever get classified or pigeonholed into. It has to be one thing. It's going where. I wanted to go. Which i probably think will make if it ever becomes bigger than it is. It's gonna take time because you're not doing the same interview over and over again but for me. That's okay. Because now. I get to take it wherever i want it to go led me to vance croat. I never would have thought that. And if i'd done just hockey players knows. Maybe i wanted to quick dick. But maybe not right and you know meditation. I would've never did tim tamashiro. he's he's a jazz musician and yet look with. That's done for me. And i just to me. That's what the podcast is doing for me all the time. It doesn't mean every interview is impactful like that but when you culminate him over a year two years or hopefully you know the next ten the impact will be pretty momentous. I would assume yeah. I think you're creating gravity. Well where you're you're there and other meteors that are flying by kind of fall into where you're at and can get into your orbit and i mean you're exactly right had you and i not met. Then there wouldn't have been a conversation between you and rob long. And then you wouldn't have met steve barber and then the conversation that you and him had about bitcoin machines. I would never have heard so like for me. It's one of those things that any time. You start getting like i wish. Some objective measurement looked different. You have to stop and say yet but look at the crazy different things that happened in your life because of this and it's like i always gets like this but i get stuck in the yeah i know about all the qualitative things but what i want is numbers still look at why i was gonna say the one you forget in that line of rob or you'd rob. Steve is quick. Dick however maybe i told us when we when we when we I did when i interview you. But when i first thought of interviewing quick i had doubts about that and it's one of the reasons why quick dick has probably. I have no idea but by doing that interview the first ones specifically the first one and meeting somebody like quick. Who mean him. Have this weird relationship. We've never met in person but at the same time. Now i'm going to bike to them and do a fundraise like it's just it's almost absurd to think about but by me trusting my gut and going no i i really want to do this and if it sucks. It sucks soviet. That's fine has led me down this path of i'm gonna do vance crow and if it sucks it's oxygen that's okay and look you look at where that's gone right in. I have done interviews vance. Where not that. I'm not proud of them at the end but warrant what i thought they were gonna be. And that's okay there just one in a long line right and then i've done lots like you rob that all sudden. You're like wow. That was good and then it spawns into something else that. There's no way i could ever predict what's going on and it brings me. I gotta give you the quote from drastic park. That when i read it i was like oh man that's good. It's straight linear already. The i'll read it. You can come at all right so straight. Linear already is an artificial way of viewing the world. Real life is in a series of interconnected events happening one after another like beads strung on the necklace. Life is a series of encounters. Where one event can change all the events the follow in an unpredictable way and read that and i wrote it down in a land. Yeah that right. There is exactly how i live life. So when you say jumping full-on it's like. I have no idea what this conversation is going to bring. Maybe brings nothing. Maybe somebody hears it and hears me talk. And here's you talking and then reaches out just like i do and you just you have. There's no way to control that. And there's no reason to even think about that but i know that every day is going to present opportunities like that that can take anywhere we want to go and that is a fun way to live life that men like every once in a while. Have a podcast right. Just like well up with excitement. And i'm so glad you brought up quick dick mctighe because he's one of those guys that it was just like. I think i'm just going to interview him. And then boom a whole bunch of other things exploded from that but like so in the network one of the things. We're doing this month. Is we're focused on what i call network theory which is like how to connect your nodes to other nodes and i think a lot of times networking gets put off in this idea of why gotta make business connections because somebody might want to buy my product or hire me but i think of it in this totally different way and having watched pete live this life where he's impacted so many people you're quoted they're really strikes it to me so what we've been doing is every day. I put a new prompt up writing teacher. That had a big impact on you and just tell them. Tell them what they did. Write a boss at one. Point taught you something that you didn't know right to people and make sure that they meet because if it weren't if you don't make that connection happen you don't know what will happen. And in all the way down deep in my soul. I know that if if if you or miriam or christina or mike or any of the people in the network just go and connect to people that were not connected. You may radically change the future and you don't have any idea whether or not the connection when you make. It was a good one but if you try your hardest to make connections between people spark energy you literally changing the world just by a simple email and the fact that you got over. The i don't know what to ride. Or i don't know how to do it. So you saying that thing. Men like me that quote from that that is quintessentially the very very core of like the the. I don't know my my entertainment. My voice that says go do this so profound to me. It's the only thing i would add about what you're doing in the network is for anyone listening. What you've just explained. The only thing i would add as a caveat is when you're connecting to people the way you're trying to do in the network is and do without trying to attract the the good to you. What you're trying to do is give other people the best with nothing coming back to you because that would be like selfish right. I'm gonna hook up. Vance this guy because i can see where it's gonna lead me not only looking at where it's gonna leave. You look at where it's gonna lead for these two people if you hook them together and see where it goes because that in itself may pay dividends may not down the road. But you're trying to do good for somebody else and when somebody does that for you. It's like talking to steve about coming on. Your podcast was probably the easiest sell. I've ever done for anyone. Because in the beginning you hooking me up with rob was just me and you didn't ask for anything in return. It wasn't like hab do that. But i need this in return. It was just kind of like down the road. Could you maybe pull that off. It's like yeah. I probably could. And so that night. I talked to steve dunn. And when you get people to sell you that way other people on that. And then they're like. Steve had no no he had no hope in hell right. He was like now. 'cause that's just like the genuine feel of it instead of feeling like a cheap sales call like oh by the way i need to introduce you to this guy. Well why Because he you know. Whatever that kim. That kim mcconnell you used to. I listened to his interview. He did he had. He's been on one podcast. And i listened to him and he thinks it's funny. He thinks he has nothing to offer. He was talking like i. I don't know i don't have much. I listen to the interview. And i was like in probably twenty minutes bands. He had more profound things about sales. And how network and market that. I've ever heard anyone say and one of them was was networking and just creating relationships but not just relationships like good relationships where you want the best for each other and that those are powerful relationships and you'll never know where they end. I think i so. I have really been focused on trying to put myself in a position to have the best dreams that i can night and so this is actually been the first time in my life where i've had a carrot instead of a stick to not have a beer right. The reason i want to have a beer is because i might have a hangover tomorrow or you know. I don't stay up too late. Because i don't want to be tired tomorrow but now i know if i really focus on getting good sleep i have these dreams where when i wake up in the morning the dreams themselves don't necessarily tell me what i should do but i have these ideas i'm like. Oh i should make sure that kim and sean knew each other. I should just do that. And i do it in the morning when there's like no resistance. There's nothing stopping me. And i just tap these things out and i have found that Listening to that little voice that says oh you want to introduce this person to that person. I stopped whatever. I'm doing right then and if i can't do it right then i write it down but almost always i do this and to me. It's like the people that do. It will see their lives change in ways that they can't predict and they didn't know what they would want But but it's like so deeply important. Maybe the one thing i can add into the world is to teach people how to do this in a way that you're describing where it's you're not doing it so that that way then sell you something or give you something back. It's just that's that's the that's the thing that you were able to stitch together in the universe that will make the biggest difference. I i got. I got a quiz you now. What are you doing to get better sleep than just not drinking before bed or view found something that helps you dream more. Oh so yes. So this guy eric. Hold that i'm really interested in. He talks about one of the problems with modern society. Is that when you watch entertainment. You're basically tricking your brain into thinking. It's having a dream and so because you're you're in the grooves of things you already know the tropes that are already well understood to you and so he basically says the way that you can Amp up your dreams is go. Expose yourself to art which he defines not as like you know what is the museum say is are really like things that you look at listened to that challenge you. That require you to really be like. Why is this something that a person put together you know. Why did they push those colors together. Why do those notes means something to those people and that by exposing yourself to art. You're actually like flooding your neurons with new information and the dreams. Are you pulling things that you thought you understood apart and reforming them into different patterns. And so then when you wake up you have all these revelations that you would never have consciously done but by the fact that you've put yourself in that position to have those dreams so i i try and look at art. I think if anybody wants to see a blog that really will challenge you plan to mls blog rob long key posts art and complicated ideas but if you sit down and just sit with them for a little while. They always generate dreams. I sign up for museums. That put out art of the day and i try and expose myself to that and i really try and kick out entertainment as much as i can so youtube is an addiction for me and i have to stop myself from tumbling down that rabbit hole but i will. I kick out. Twitter feeds. That are entertainment and i try and add things that are that are that challenge me as much as i can. That's interesting i'm gonna that because i Who doesn't want a dream more and have those dreams where you wake up in the morning and you go can't put my finger on that but there's something there and then you think about it and you continue to think about it. I think a lot of people had the dream where you wake up and something that was bothering you the night before or the week before you got the answer to and you're like how that workout but that's interesting i. I will try to the biggest thing that the network did was we did. I don't know if you're in there this month when we did. We're going to try and get the seven to eight hours of sleep every single night. And that's when i interviewed you. And i didn't know what the hell you're talking about at that was really. That was a profound one you know. Sometimes we try and they work out sometimes. They don't that one was really good. So that one i was like i'm going to get eight hours asleep minus whatever the baby time to wake up in the middle of the night four and that was when i realize like oh shit if i get good sleep i start having dreams other things start happening so that was a really. Good one sean. I promised you a time that we would let go. And i'm going to do that now. I will have you on anytime. And let's do this more regularly. If people wanted to listen to the podcast that i think is amazing that you put together. Where would they find that. It's on youtube or apple spotify. Just sean new podcast sean. With a with a you and if people wanted to support your Cycling to go see quick. Where would that money go and how they were starting up a goal funny so i would say Look for social media here over the next month and all the money is going to go to breakfast. Programs for schools around the white minster and surrounding area will fantastic man. Nothing makes me happier than to have had this conversation with you. Thank you so much for joining me. Sean newman thanks.

Interview with Shep Hyken : Amaze Every Customer Every Time

"Cast my name is Kerry Sol's I'm a value growth advisor to mid market companies and the author of the Bestseller Multiply Your Business Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of the three x value goes it three x value growth dot com forward slash modeled for the P._d._f.. Wow My ideal client is anybody that wants to build a stronger relationship with either their customers and even their employees almost all of my books and customer every time and the convenience revolution he created the customer focus a customer service training program welcome speeches go to building relationships and creating a better service or better general customer experience and I believe customers are both internal and external trivia is that in seventeen eighty seven eleven hutchence of Concord New Hampshire invented the very first alarm clock really good point that is not just the external that is both absolutely so question number two what is the problem that you're trying disolve when you think about like my middle market customers those kind of businesses what is the problem that you're kind of programmed solves sure well that's share more information and I I love to write as well definitely today though we're going to cover the topic of amaze every customer every time he is a New York Times bestselling author of seven books including moments of magic the cult of the customer amaze every with seven questions in seven minutes are you ready I'm sitting back I love it the first question is who's your ideal client one of my idols for years definitely but we're talking about customer service today and I'm so thrilled to have you here but before we get into our red presentations LLC welcome Shep it's great to be here now I know something about alarm clocks that I never knew before well see that's why view I want to let the audience understand what ship hike and brings to the table shop is a customer service and customer experience expert. He's a keynote speaker. Where do you come from I hail from the wonderful city of Saint Louis Missouri and here's a little trivia it only took fifty two years but my Saint Louis Blues or finally Stanley Cup Champs I was special and I went to some of the Games back in the nineteen seventies when they beat us in the Stanley Cup four games in a row and you can't see it so back in the seventeen hundreds we had alarm clocks who knew today I'm joined by Shep Pikine of chef have fun coming up with these because I didn't know these things either and I think the really interesting that New Hampshire brings us so much so ship where are you calling in huge question but I'm going to do it in under sixty seconds and now I only have fifty two left if that is I think every company today recognizes the value of delivering a better again shep hiking hey that's great so there's a little trivia about me lots of books well I think we both have that desire to just next time every time so what are we doing now to make sure that customer comes back powerful so based on that what do you see the most acolyte one thousand nine hundred seventy of that season Bobby Orr flying through the air which has become the most famous picture and hockey of all time autographed by Boston bruins number four who at the time just as a little kid was my idol well that's a great experience that you have to hold onto because he was experience the goal is to do it in such a way that not only at set you apart for your competition that differentiates you but it becomes not just something on the front line well you might be able to know in the video behind me but there's a picture on the wall from the final goal of the fourth game of the Stanley Cup we're Boston Beats Saint Louis hits well my favorite bruins aren't happy about that but they had a bunch of Stanley cups this was our great distinction definitely on to question number three what are the typical symptoms of the problem for businesses that you see them experience it's cultural that the entire organization buys into it when an entire organization buys into the idea of being customer focus and that means meters all the way down common mistakes that you see owners making when they try to take care of this on their own sure well first and foremost people think of customer service call it number or a stat does the customer come back because that's really what we're focused on in that goes back to the question we just had we talked about loyalty loyalty being about yes reason what's the problem I don't WanNa lose my customer I wanNA keep my customer how do we do that deliver an experience that makes them one at comeback actually I have when I call the loyalty question which is real simple what am I doing right now to make sure that customer comes back next time see loyalty isn't about lifetime it's about the next time every time the most recently hired then you've got a shot at creating that experience customers have so you're solving a problem because of the reason behind the problem thing or that they talk about that makes them realize they need help right well there's several things first of all there's an old saying Peter Drucker said Deming said it you can't manage what you don't mess as a department and I mentioned this earlier it's not it's a philosophy as part of the culture gets ingrained in everybody you can take a look at the companies that are truly sure so there has to be measurement in place in here's what we're looking at number one what are we can look at customer satisfaction scores for example what are those scores number two John Carlson the former president of Scandinavian Airlines and it's the moment of truth and it's anytime the customer comes into contact with any aspect of the business and that is what I call a moment of mediocrity the moment of truth becomes a moment of mediocrity negative I call it a moment of misery positive I call it a moment of magic so when I want everybody to think about to look at the best companies to work for that's because that idea of culture and taking care of customers internally is good then you'll see there's director we can look at churn how often do we do business with the customer and then we never hear from them again and number three here's the biggest and most important number if you want relation best companies to work for best companies provide from and guess what they're also the most successful companies wow that's a really powerful argument incredible do that like the American customer satisfaction index is a great one but there's a number of studies and we'll do that if you invest in those companies they outperformed the SNP proven aren't over the top blow me away with the most incredible service note Bayer consistently in predictably just a little bit better than average and the customer always count on them that were always followed by something positive in the way to get there is to manage that moment powerful and that's something that and that data is out there so owners can go and find that readily awesome based on that what's one valuable free action that you think they can start using immediately after they hear you speak it's easy just think about it manage the moment and both by the way for your outside customers and your internal they form an impression that's the moment of truth any interaction and it goes one of three ways he said it could be good and bad and yes it can be good and it could be bad and they could be mediocre vessel and they've done studies where if you invested for ten years in the Stock Market for Tanner twenty companies that exceeded customers expectation there are studies out there that thing that service doesn't cost that actually pays creating that experience is really a powerful thing but here's what happens if you look at glassdoor dot com and you the audience can actually implement today that will increase the value of their business based on what you just said so I have this concept that I learned about from as I love doing business with them because they're always friendly always knowledgeable they're always nice they always call back when I need them they always give me the answer even there's a problem and I can and there's six hundred plus videos that I have on there and those are little chunks of nuggets pieces of my speech tips that I do on a weekly customer service tip if you go to my youtube channel which is real easy it's SHEP TV my name Shop S. H. E. P. T. V. dot com right so that leads me to number six what is one valuable free resource that you direct people to that will further help them solve that problem sure gosh a valuable free resources just go to my youtube channel or go to my website hiking dot com because there's a newsletter you can sign up for every week we send what is it every interaction what are they doing right now to make sure that interaction is better than average better than mediocre because the most amazing companies on the planet so you get a great piece that you can share with your team again all of this is free so with all of the experience that you bring to the table what's one last piece information that I should've asked you about that really really wanNA share with these business owners wow I love that what I would encourage everybody to think about is this I think the biggest concept and customer experience today isn't just delivering great service isn't just trying to create that experience specifically I want you to think about being conveyed can't for your customer be easy to business with eliminate friction find the interaction points again those moments of truth for example if I so there's plenty of great information if you subscribe to the newsletter and it's free at the end it's as show this video at your next meeting and these are the types of videos are on Youtube channels your book where identified six Pacific concepts of when I call my convenience principles and the first is simply to reduce friction and think about companies that have done that inconvenient experience and you'll start

This is wonderful you how are things that we are super into one hundred episode. Everybody said we wouldn't make it. That's true who trump my shorts. Twenty-seven I tunes review. They're never gonNA make never gonNA make it to one hundred. If you add the rose buddies years we're we're we're well into the wet thousands who even knows but anyway hundred episodes so special when we got special we were trying to figure out how much elbow grease to put into a Eh and I thought we had agreed on very little and just let's have a day for ourselves but I just looked at your shit and you have a high chart and that makes me feel like a fucking clown so first of all we should thank for the hundredth time probably Bo in an Augusta's for these themes on how whoever the mysterious stranger that created wonderful that F. Y. Yes you tremendous resource and leading for today's episode some of that Shit I was looking back through 'cause I went back through like all my suggestions throughout time and unlike some of that Shit I did not remember dedicating twelve minutes on my life to but yeah I was surprised to find out that I had so we have a few skits skits. We have not really discussed what each of us I mean. We have a general sense of what the other is talked kind of of yet participate in the skit. It's sort of a you know flip best of episode flashback episode. I feel like we're approaching it from a different. Shall we do small wonders. Let's do small one is just touch base anything modern anything now anything happening now you're into. I got something okay turning a bread recipe into a a muffin recipe just more bread. It's more bread folks. Stick a Pumpkin bread recipe. I said I'll just pour these and little muffin tins now the pumpkin muffins and they are the perfect whole snack serving size. Oh my God I love a good muffin. It's it's like an unstaffed hand pie. If you think about it oh salmon into salmon lately. I love this stuff hooper into Sam really into Salmon. I got the bug at Disney world. I don't know why been playing a cool video. Game called outer wilds and it's like groundhog day. I it's setting setting like this solar system that you can fly around the spaceship and solve all these mysteries but you only have twenty two minutes before the sun explodes and so you have to like figure out what's going on but you're on a time limit and then when you die I start over this really cool game really end to that and salmon that I say salmon fish that delights everyone. It's a pink one. Uh No bones in this fish makes it easy for you. Yeah comes precooked from the see. What is a what are we doing here? Well let me let me take you back. I thought it would be good to just just go to our roots. Look at episode. One okay just very quickly. Explain to everybody where we started. Okay okay episode one came out September six twenty seventeen. Oh Wow so. We've almost almost two years like exactly years yeah yeah but I I mean almost to the day and we talked about a lot more topics then yeah. I think we sort yeah. This is before a small wonders and I think we wanted to cover a lot of things. So first I episode Grand Prize Game Yeah Movies about baseball timeless the expression no worries. Oh Yeah Yours were. VR Yeah Carly Rae well specifically the first six notes of Akari jetsons cut to the feeling that goes into the chorus at six months that she she thinks which I'll go ahead and reveal what I've been doing. I worked up some superlatives and I have best Oh. I whipped these up like this morning best overall. I have still the six notes CR. Jason's racing's going into the chorus of cut to the feeling you did a facebook poll asking what the best thing we've ever done is and it was that I was so blown away and I tell you I brought that same poll the twitter okay okay and last I checked what was number one poetry corner well. That's a that's a that's a that's more poetry corner to draw from than than six six notes. I guess well there's there's more poetry in those six notes than all the words of the great barred but Carly Rae was second yeah okay. I think it's worth talking about other things that happened at the very beginning run so as I mentioned I episode US oh nine six two thousand seventeen yeah nine twenty eight twenty seventeen Liz. Oh was I mentioned we were. I feel like we were pretty ahead of the game I'm giving that as far as superlatives. I'm giving that biggest call biggest call. Most improved sounds like we're talking about Liz. Oh has improved. It's that's just a sort of way of saying like we said Loizeau. Our love for Lonzo has only grown over time as the earth's yes and the global recognition of the talent that is Linzo sit every fucking commercial that comes on now has got something in it yeah the Internet something in it from Liz that she has created is awesome. I'm so glad that she has she has popped off the way she has and in in all of our polls Lazaga number three so we did polls and when I say we I mean me yeah yeah did polls asking listeners what their favourite wonderful thing was in the last ninety nine episodes. and Lizzy got number three first and second were kind of back and forth between Carly Rae six notes and poetry corner okay. Can I do a couple of superlatives I pull from. I pulled from mine. I thought you were going to be focusing on your so maybe I've I've talked this up pretty bad but I have some superlatives that worked on going through and I wanted to start with most most confusing and I'm going to give that to and this is how I framed. I Guess Gentle Ball Hitting Games. I don't remember what that means. WHOA was it ping pong? Is it Pingpong U K. I guess I suppose you can ahead Ping Pong but I wonder why you just say Ping Pong. Am I describing pool there. I don't know I saw this. I was like this has to be something. It's most confusing infusing most confusing well. That's actually brings me to another thing so wonderful. F. Y. is categorized by like kind of large groups that they put our topics interesting. Okay so food and drink is one music podcasts is one TV video movies one. There is a giant category just just called other which I think is just uncategorized -able things in that probably Oh my God like parasols outdoor hoses Buggy as well those are objects like I was thinking they would sort of talk more about the concepts that we talk about sometimes to the feeling of relief you get when you open a new container of something how do you is there a word in German that describes that sensation so we according to what we had a total of six hundred and twenty-five wonderful thing in how we are keeping it going earth I mean of those two hundred seven fall in the other category okay excised category food and drink. That's the that's the second most yet talked about that. Make Sense yes. That's like white claw hot dogs hot dogs by the way they came up three times in our in our run talk about hot dogs thrice. Yes you talked about making hot dogs at home. Okay talked about hot dogs at a baseball game okay and then we talked about the hotdog destroyer video still gray. If you didn't hear that episode it was big plastic syringe range that you cut the the needle off of and you put it like a great a great of paper clips in there and then you put the plan hotdog in you push the plunger at pushes the hotdog through the great split it and nobody knows maybe you're making several very small long still hot dogs. I don't know maybe gotTa make that hot dog. Go around around. I'm not here to judge. Let's let's have another superlative got a pair of superlatives here. Okay I have least authentic then. This is one of mine out door equipment you and camping tech because if I'm being honest did a segment on that maybe this segment should be instead most aspirational since I did that segment guys. Do you remember what you were getting but we went to Rei Ari. I we got something but then I just sort of more talked about my fascination with gear and I like Gear Holy Shit. I like gear but like the year I'm buying these days friends. It stays in the home. I am not out there buying pickaxes. I am not out out there buying a new tint over the weekend we went on a gentle walk with some friends and it was it was very hot granted by the end of it. We just okay no. I'm I'm not gonNA we have like a thirty pound child. Also that road on my shoulders. Why held a a wet cloth to his skinned knee? It was an mayor. I'm not going to let that anyway. I have most authentic and that is a nice light jacket. Still fucking great still good wearing one right now still always Lisa Marie condo salad laid out all your light jackets. You know what's a sad fact is I will have artifacts of clothing like a light jacket or a hat that is like a I guess you could call it an accessory and of all of the things actually of all the things in general that I own those are the ones that I am the worst about unlike not losing I lose jackets and hats fucking constantly. I'd lose at Houston Astros hat that I loved fit so great and I liked the look of which is rare for me in baseball cap lost that shit at Disney somewhere do not know hit me up goofy. George gave hit me up by you find it jackets. I love to jackets on the cruise. I love to jackets on the cruise ship. Can I tell you something yeah. You tend to wear jackets when you don't actually need to have a jacket and I think that's why you lose them. No yeah bring them to an environment. It doesn't matter to them and not have better have a might not need them to need them and have do you have another thing I do so I wanted to talk talk about another popular category for us. which is music slash podcast? I have relatives there okay. We have brought eighty two music music top. What's up guys? It's me. Dj Boom blast tonight. I'm going to be spinning all the greatest hits. I'm GONNA play for you thirty one music Dick so get ready strap in. Hey guys welcome. This is w. w. f. b. the greatest all these in this side of the Mississippi. WE'RE GONNA it'll be playing nonstop commercial fifteen music for you. Don't touch that dial. It's got jerem on it. Tell me what your music superlatives are played a couple music superlatives. I've it just like best music that I that I brought Judy Sill. It's the one that like since I did that I like had listened to some of her other stuff that I hadn't really listen to before and it's still the one that is still though Wanna into That's the other one is faith hill. probably don't WanNA bring fails. I also have most I this is the most tragic category that I brought and it was chill hoppe and don't get me wrong. Love Chill hob still put it on when I'm working. I still put it on when I need to chill out but it has sadly sadly defiled another one of my topics. which is the spotify weekly playlist recommendation? No Yeah I swear to God I spend tomorrow listening to who exclusively fuck in like Acapella Japanese black metal we'll get to my fucking playlist would be like an here's thirty more the chill hop songs and it's like a dog. I promise I am so chill. I've the biggest playlist ever of this good stuff like I would like some other stuff now yeah. I guess I guess there is such a thing as too much of a good thing can talk a little bit about poetry corner. Yeah of course you can talk a lot about poetry corner so here's what's kind of amazing to me as I mentioned six hundred and twenty five wonderful things now that includes small wonders by the way okay I have only featured sixteen poets in that whole run. Have you done repeat poets. No you've only done sixteen poetry homeowners. That's weird we have done thirty two new poetry and literature topics icy. Four of them have been by you really yeah. The others have been by me okay because I put best book hatchet because I thought it was the only book I brought one of you had some other books on there some Sifi thing some Sifi thing. Oh I guess as small wonders I wasn't looking at small wonders when to put this list. Okay is probably Seventies. Maybe yeah that was probably it. I actually I strike that book from the record if fucked me up mentally they gave me a lot of horrific anxiety and as much as I love Neil Stevenson like this is the party do not read if you are an anxious person hatchet that one will get you there that will take you to paradise a northern wild reread that in a while though maybe there's some stuff in there you didn't catch that that first time he makes it out alive and the world doesn't explode so I'm gonNA say hatchet a less anxious experience reading experience than seven years. That's not a spoiler by the way it happens like the first chapter. I wanted to give a shout out to the first poet that I think really started the poetry corner which was Wallace Stevens Wallace Steve that was episode five while Stevens is the poet that had a feud with Robert Frost. That's the episode Robert Frost Fistfight. Oh that's a fun title and he's also the poet that had the last is lines for the listener who listens in the snow and nothing himself beholds nothing that is not there and nothing that is Oh Shit Shit Robert Frost that it was I mean that's clearly a burn on Robert Frost right. That's the poem the Snowman Oh my God dip fucking melted Robert Frost. You got fucking putting the toilet famous exchange between while Stevens Robert Frost were whilst even and says the trouble with you Robert is that you write about subjects and fraud says the trouble with you while us is that you write about bric a BRAC. I See I see me the Frost Call Him Frost Man. Damn I want to know more about old beefs. The old art is I hope that quote from a website that is all about literary feud on the website the wait for that wonderful episode one one segment. Hey bad news. I am really burning through my that's okay we can do okay okay. What's next so I wanted to talk about? Something else crashes wombats this has been this has become part of our brand part of our and you know it's crazy we talked about it in the second episode haven't really circle back on wombats too much but they're poop is square and that's great and they kill things predators with their butts and that's pretty great to Griffin and I get a lot of wombat material both sent to us through our Po box ax and also sent to us through twitter and facebook as if we invented the wombat I will say this stuff is all for Henry and it's also good. It's fair as a whole diary of Combat Series of books that we have now they're beautiful and they're very good. They're very charming and cute and also very short which which is great when Henry wants another last book I can be like how about Christmas wombat thank you to everybody who sent us also unlike stuffed wombat is very sweet but of all the things all the things because it's this dog six hundred and twenty-five things could've tamagotchis earn still send US hot dogs. Don't send US hot dogs we don't check the Po box that often. You want to know so I'll I'll pepper in my top five hunger and I were originally talking about doing this episode. Yeah I indicated that we both should pick a top five okay and then maybe at the end of the episode decide what the most wonderful thing is of our first hundred episodes. Oh Shit get out overalls overall overalls also early on not not quite as early. We'll know actually same episode shed. Is that possible anything. I wrote down well. I don't think I wrote it down anyway. Overalls early in the run overalls is one of the first thing I thought of when we started talking about doing this show and I was like Shirley can't make a whole segment out of that but I did and I still love them so much. Yeah they're really good to see a pair of overalls and not known it yeah you and sometimes you have ripped them off of mannequins or stolen them out so part of my top five each item comes with an argument because I was prepared to go to battle timeless functional okay and available to all everyone can wear overalls but should everyone yeah. Everyone should wear overall so functional yeah. Have you ever like when you were an overall. I've never seen when I was three the and I was taking pictures for the Church directory so there's pockets on the side. Yeah there's pockets upfront pockets in the back okay. There's nothing better than like putting wouldn't a pen in that front pocket and just like having it at the ready okay. Now I'm with you. I think that this is a strong contender. It'll probably win. I just looking at the website now going to Paul some random bullshit definitely in my top five a nice mechanical keyboard can't stress this enough. I got these new rainbow like sweet Sherbert key caps on mine and it's just babe. I don't think you understand this is my deck. You know this is the fuck in spaceship. I used to fly through the information superhighway. This is what I use to create eat pete and I got to have it be on lock and since I've gotten it unlock my words per minute having greased my writing is bet that is more by your click clack sound clicky clack San has gone up considered. That's not true. My Land Keyboard was a gaming keyboard from black widow razor bullshit speaking of games. Oh yeah can I tell you that's another category fifty five Game Holy Shit only six of which were mine and mine as you recall are like foursquare and little computer people. I mean those still absolutely now I I have a a best game category and it is animal crossing and that's going to be tough to ever ever be. I feel like it's just it's so good.

We're just a couple of dufuses from Canada and listener show or parish. Stop podcasting yourself on maximum maximum fun dot or i WanNa talk about the best movie that I have brought ooh. I just realized I bought Groundhog Day so best movie from the last twenty years the best movie that I've often the last twenty years here's and definitely top five contender for me is that Spiderman Animated Spiderman into this fight fast and the furious but remember we ever talked about that I mean we talked about drifting so I did an answer Larry. We talk about passing periods Tokyo draft. which is the worst one of those movies so well like third worst anyway? This Spiderman Movie Holy Shit sought in theaters. There's blew my fucking mind took you to see it in theaters. which is like I never do that is going to see a second movie again went and saw the movie a second time with you? In theaters blew my mind again bought it came out on rental or whatever watch that shit like once a week with him. It's like the movie that I have fallen the deepest in love with mm since we've been doing this show. It's so good. It's so very very good. It's so good it's it takes my breath away. Every time it looks so good and I didn't realize there was like an alternate universe mode and the version that we bought that has like extra extra stuff. There's like more spider ham stuff with the what's his face shit who did Spider Ham Shit John Mullany John mullany funny funny jokes. He's got funny jokes for days man always talking about that. Do you want another another one of my top five yeah the Saint Louis Blues I mean that's it man so I I mentioned the Saint Louis Blues actually in our prequel episode while we were still under rose buddies episode seventy seven of rose buddies that came out in July twenty seventeen I did kind of a tester backdoor pilot is they call this just because the things we liked you have mine was the Saint Louis Blues and then when we started going on wonderful and I thought let's bring him in again happened to be the year that they won the Stanley Cup yeah like hey. There's this little song called Gloria. They've been playing in the locker groome. Isn't that fun. Yeah I love that I was listening the whole thing you got me on the ground floor of the Gloria thing which I it's such a powerful sports idea Mendez totally like it's a great song and also a wholly inappropriate song to be the theme song for Professional Sports Team game and it went from being a joke to like like an entire city of people and also the whole Saint Louis Blues like community around the world. Oh like crying when they hear Gloria. It's yeah man that is a huge. That's that's probably most improved for me going from not giving shit about any sports really at all all over the course of like actually getting deeply invested in it was so sweet and when they won I had so many people like on twitter and facebook like reaching out to me just because they knew I liked it because it talked about it on the show I do also want to mention that your dad sent us a like ring like a Saint Louis Blues. What is it like championship ring or something which is not a real thing? I don't think I don't know yeah this is clearly a replica hockey players. Get rings probably do somebody's probably probably make him upset rings or something Johnston's or something like that I he also sent me. A Green Bay packers rang that I could fit my fucking wrist through and every time I it it just reminds me how big these guys out just bill big boys. We convinced Henri that it was a green lantern ring yeah and then I am. I'm also where he's going to drop it on. His foot. Breaks precious little bird bones so I mentioned how we talked about hotdog's three times another topic. We talked about three times. I think through small wonders is terraced house. It's hard not to list terrace has top wonderful thing top like yeah I mean yeah man pound for pound. That's probably that's definitely top five two of the three times it was just a small wonder of saying hey new seasons up yeah. I guess it was during Bros.. Buddies that we did like a really deep dive on the first season that was on net flicks the season we've been watching through like leaf netflix now. It's on Netflix now. While the first there's twelve episodes I think there is there is more basically every twelve episodes when they hit that twelve episode episode in Japan they like release them in one big chunk on Netflix. I'm pretty sure that's what they're doing. It's a good season with that is giving me also lots of anxiety because the drama drama hits pretty early early on this one for my taste it does it's that show used to be just kind of a relaxation show and there's definitely still that element but it is not as reliable as it used to be modest yeah not during during the first two seasons like it was pretty chill and then we got Aloha stay and then that's just a got nasty I dunno folks. It got got a little bit and I had a taste of that venom. ooh His got bit by Master Chef. Got Gotta a suck the PISS and out I also wanted to mention just as a little stat will fun fact okay. We've only done one live show. Oh Oh yeah isn't Austin November twenty eighteen this is something we have talked about doing again. Yeah we have no immediate plans to do this. Snow it will happen though I believe yes us next time. Did we do Austin shows that we can get a babysitter folks. You can believe it. We're going to be doing shows for you know we can do we can we should should do on the cruise. We could probably do one on a cruise. That'd be fun. It'll be fun very you know not. As many people will get to see it but we you know we'd hitch up with recording after Henry's getting old benef- now that we could potentially keep them up a little later backstage and and do a little this kid fucking rex crafty he wrecks crafty and we get complaints dewey. We didn't planes what else can played sound like your son made a homicide mess. Your son made a big Hamas mismatch. That's not true. We took home this off the crafty because we nobody was eating throwing away at this not throwing away leaving them. I the Veggie tray and next yeah last time got it out specifically so that somebody would eat a carrot yeah other food really I had most improved here before we talked about Lizl but I really feel like it's more suitable notable. Here is for bar shaped foods partially foods the innovations the innovations folks are off the charts innovations. Are you talking about different. Partial food's food's good bar shape foods. I mean this is before we got fig bars going in the mix and that's my whole thing right now. I'm talking about fruit route nut bars. I'm talking about those. I will say that those little rice crispy rollers that we get from the Costco that are only one hundred calories for a nice sweet filling snack definitely arshavin cylinder I mean a cylinder can be a bar. Yes who interesting. Yes mathematicians weighing on that place okay. They don't know why we need to get mathematicians involved bar shape foods there shogo those little cliff bars that we give to our son that make him so constipated but he loves the energy. It's I don't think they do. There's fiber in those bar shaped foods Masugi. I'm GONNA say kind of a bar shape food. You're getting a little too deliberately. Okay in Spain the dog Abar Shave food no but the spam inside the Masugi. I think we can all agree is pretty bar. Okay Okay Kennedy is the Lordon and the law and math. Oh I've got a new superlative for you. What's that biggest surprise? I've only talked about one episode of quantum leap that is pretty wild finale or the Pie. Oh it's the one where he goes back into his family. Episode gives me chills. I it was very specific. When I brought up that episode I didn't WanNa say quantum leap definitely didn't want to say Scott Bagyula? I wanted to work my way up and so I said I'm just going to talk about this. One one specific episode of quantum leap so I can return to quantum leap as often as I want I want. I didn't hang it man shows you. How many wonderful things there are in this world that I've I've only had a talk about quantum leap that was supposed to be your quantum leap project where you left into the time line of being able to talk about quantum quantum leap whenever you wanted to hoping one day one day one day that the wonderful segment you do? We'll be the wonderful segment that leads you home. What wrong by putting right by doing that? I don't no no man I mean I like to think that as podcasters the difference we bring to the world is immeasurable. Some some people call us podcasters when people ask me what I do sometimes say podcast producer but sometimes I catch myself and I say I'm a hero all right. That seems totally fair. I have a last superlative here in its best TV and I did put the OC just step off won't away good great British bake off. We just did great terrace house like very important to me very special. Oh see how many times through you watched a seizure forget that I have watched it four times all the way through Sunday. I will make it five California coming back. You're on who lose trap on in. We're GONNA and watch it after this. We're going it's time that the cycle must begin in new it demands a sacrifice. You know what this is another big surprise. I don't think we've we've ever done a full segment on Ninja Warrior. That's so while we were just watching it before we Ninja okay usually made that a small wonder but I don't know that we ever really fleshed rushed out here. I Wanna I WANNA let's go behind the scenes. There's GonNa be a fun episode one hundred segment where we take people behind the scenes of literally every Tuesday from five PM Central Time I'm to ten PM central time five hour period of our lives once a week every Tuesday while this show is is on the air get home at five gay Henry home from daycare you get home. You get his dinner ready when I get him home. It's sitting there ray. He eats it. We watched some kids stuff. Get Him you know going on the Pie do you all the good stuff gets read them some stories. He goes to bed then we usually eat food from the same Chinese place so much so that the person who answers the phone there air knows my name and which of the two orders we continue to oscillate between and surprised. She hasn't memorized my debit card number at this pay now. I think it's sweet that she still asks for it and then we get food at the time Henry goes to bed. We watched the episode of American Ninja Warrior that aired the night before for like thirty minutes while we eat our dinner we come upstairs. Record are delightful show once we're finished go back downstairs finish that episode sometimes you go to bed at at sometimes they saved just real quick. Go back fourth naming Ninja Warrior contestants to see how long we can go. I'M GONNA I'm so bad it just like this but I can give it a shot all right Jesse Jesse graph okay drew Drexel Drexel Drexel Drexel. You're out all right Kevin Ball the Weatherman Ski. I think we can accept like Ninja titles. Also although we have to be careful because then you can just a any ball share in probably some Ninja. I'm GONNA say captain. NBC A camera staying. That's the wildest shit the kid kilowatt we Nausea Richardson the Phoenix so good so good I mean there's Barkley strong. I don't remember Barclay's stock. It's Berkeley stock it and then we got Casey Kevin Zarro retire gone onto the wwe but I still works Michelle warnke Michelle Wonky is really good and then we can move onto a uh on my God flip Rodriguez Goodyear unless I know I know I am trying to think of the woman and who I know the teacher now that's Elissa Beard Dan. I'm trying to think of the woman who always times out at the very end that we he likes some all man. Another yeah can't remember I can't either. There's the island Ninja Grant McCartan. Oh yeah the island in Asia. I think you're out at this point. I think I am too. It was the Cowboy Ninja name. Is something like Buck strongly in this show folks. I don't know why occupies a special place in our lives but damage does it started as this this thing that we did when there was nothing else to do and now it's like. It's appointment television. I think it's the finale downstairs. There reminds me survivor survivor very hey good shows should be back on by this point. It's gotta be soon right US anyway. I would like to in the show. Do you have anything else we'll we'll do. We want to pick a wonderful thing. I mean I mean I feel like we should maybe go with the listeners and talk about the woman that started where did it all Carly Carly Fio- Special Memories why special time we went to see her in concert touched. Her uncomfortably awkwardly wasn't the I think it was just touching the son you're not supposed to do that. It had one or two new albums to maybe to come out the BEE's. Yes I think emotional is out but besides I think came out maybe after we're recording now had store on. It had some great jams. New Album took me a while to really figure out what it was about. It's really it's really won me over yeah yeah so first hundred episodes best thing ever still episode one the six notes going into the chorus aggressive cut to the feeling and they also do like what we remiss. Do you have anything that you feel guilty that we haven't talked about Oh man. I have a big one and this may be. I don't know the latest season of are you. The one was fucking grass the latest season of are you the one which is a show that we talked about a couple of times on rose buddies where there were ten ten men ten women living in a house each one had a match decided by matchmaker and the whole point of the game as they had ten weeks to figure out who their perfect match was and if they did they win a million in dollars and there's a lot of math that goes into it. There's ways to find out exactly you know if your perfect match is correct or not but it's like this big guessing game. It's like a big game of mastermind but also dating but it got really toxic in gross and so we definitely fell off until this latest season. I remember like seeing a news article about it before the season came out that it was going to be sixteen cast members and they are all like like sexually fluid and so like anybody could could be anybody else's match yeah. They were all very open to dating any anybody and it was so like I don't know I feel like I was worried right that it'd be a tight rope walking. There were certainly still moments of toxicity in this cast but it was definitely like the most like the best people who have ever been on the show like in general like it had walked back so much of the bullshit that may turn this off from not only that show but you know like reality shows of that caliber in general and and it was just like a really like a you shipped so many fucking people on the show which never has like it has not happened a long time. It was really exciting because there's a moment in this show where everybody feels like this is a tremendous opportunity not just for us but for us as representatives of this community that is on television television a lot. Yes certainly they really could tell they really started thinking like we've got a win this like this. This is important. This is an important moment and we've got to win yeah. Yeah there was a guy named Danny who like became sort of the the the mathematician they figured out some shit there was an episode where they just. I'm obsessive Samatha this show right. There's a website called 8-o math where like somebody breaks down like statistically who is most likely to be this and it also if you go there you can find out who has been inferred referred a non match based on mathematics and stuff and there's a guy in the house who was like figuring that shit out to along with who carry there were like a couple of people the house where like there was one episode where they just figured out who three of the matches were just using their fucking brains which has never happened before we have heard enough. It's true but that people on that show you're not allowed to use paper and pencil like they don't have any writing implement right and so what they consistently do every season as they say okay stand next to the person you were with in week one okay now go. Oh stand next to the person okay. How many matches did we have in that week and then they really liked the NAFTA visually work it out yeah? I never thought I'd be talking about this. Show again and again. It was not like a season you know free of problematic moments but it was it was like it was a good season of reality dating show which like I don't. I legitimately don't think I can say I have enjoyed enjoyed since we stopped doing rose buddies yeah. It's a big one for me. gone the other big ones that you feel like you didn't it didn't hit any well keeps you up at night the I mean I don't WanNa burn it. I WANNA I WANNA make it into a segment some of this stuff though I feel like I don't know I feel like we're so late like I good place. It's like I feel like is my favorite show on TV right now. We have not talked about it white cloud or so late on anything like that that's office chair Nice Office chair. I guess that's too much like a nice mechanical November. We went through the whole thing. Get Rachel a chair on our last puts. That's right now. I have a wonderful chairman of support. That's a special thing that we share by which I mean you use it. I don't I want you to know I have never nor. Will I ever said you're welcome to sit in the babe. That's yours. I would never so what we haven't talked about enough on this show. I talk about pizza a lot more than we have. I know I know that we have talked about pizza but I feel like it's not enough. Did you not bring pizza we did we. We've talked about it once but I feel like there's a lot more opportunity there. They remember you felt so bad about how basic mateen now I mean. It's still like one of my favorite foods. I don't know I don't want to tell you it now. That's all pizzas again. Yeah Hey thanks to Bowen and Augusta's for real. Though it's a great theme song shopping shopping around for the podcast theme song stress me out so much this one was just like it was on a spotify playlist that already put together and I was like this song kicks ass emailed them got back to me like hours later and we worked out we worked at the all and they were so cool about it and yeah thing things Louis Song for the illustration Louise offered illustration to get somebody that talented to do art for our podcast so great yeah and and yeah just the maximum fun to for having us on the network it's a they've been supportive of us from day one including day whatever like five hundred twelve when we said hey we don't want to do the show that we signed up to do. We want to do something that is less soul-crushing and they were like yeah sure go for it and that was cool. Thank you to all of you. You all have this show so fun to make is so good to make a real punk rock to me sometimes to do a show that is this relentlessly positive in a climate that is so relentlessly negative. Yeah I mean I feel like I feel like this is important and I know that it it's it's kind of silly and I'm not saying that we're heroes but I feel like I feel good that we do this. In this time I I feel like we are definitely on the rain. Slick edge of saying that we are heroes and I'm going to take a few steps back from that and you now remind you of the time that you talked about baby Beluga for a while. You're getting a little big for your Britches. I'm going to sit here and trying to remember what I meant by. I gentle ball hitting games. That's fair. What could I possibly meant by Jin toll ball hitting games? I think I think it was ping-pong. See usually the website will link whatever we're talking about anything. I don't even think are web-post knew what if I google gentle ball hitting games and scared about what's going to happen when you get your results games games. This is a classic ball hidden games from MOM JUNCTION DOT com there were. That's not going to be anything anyway. Tom Thank you here's here's two hundred more hundred more. Hey Hey I have an idea. Okay going forward okay. Hey maybe we lose that home. Improvement Stinger I mean it was certainly cut down on editing time for me but we'd have to replace it with something else. That's fair. Maybe a clip of the quantum quantum leap theme song. Would that be a is there a good low cross section though Babb but what about the bump pom Pom Pom Pom Pom Burner.

And whatever and after a very very bitter eared off season the nhl is back tonight as a recording this for hockey fans across the continent jimmy. It's gonna make for a fantastic distraction from the virus. How are you doing today. the i'm okay man okay. We talked about it yesterday. Hockey cranking up. The unique thing will be the back to back games. Of course the canadian division the guarantee that one of those gain team's gonna make it to at least the semifinals I was. I was kind of tepid about it yesterday. I don't know that sounds. That sounds like a free pass. You know sort of thing. But but i woke up this morning thinking about hockey starting out. That's good that's good. It might be a free pass for the canadian. Teams were terrible. But i think there's a good chunk of canadian teams. That are very good so yeah. A canadian team is an automatic for the conference. Final for sure. But it's not like it's a lesser division. That gives them a free pass. It still going to be well earned even though we're kind of putting in framing it in those terms like a canadian team is guaranteed a spot. It doesn't mean it's not going to be hard right. Darren pang yesterday. We had him on the suspended with me and rusty. You're a big part of that as well and he talked about the sense at the end of the show. So i i was telling you the clip it if you wanted to and use it but let's clipping played right here then. Oh there we go. Here is darren pang Former ottawa sixty seven's goalie longtime saint louis blues analyst and of course always keeping an eye on the ottawa senators. Here's what pinger did say on the spendable 's about the ottawa. Senators fundraisers for cronin colitis in ottawa. In writing martini. This virtual are martini madness. And because of andy scott who is one of the great agents in the game they were able to secure tim students like him on the show. chuck yeah brady. Chuck came on the show as well. And so i thought that's a good auto a boy right there so i like him. I follow auto online especially with brady. I play. I play some golf with brady in the offseason. He's here. I think he's a gamer. Russi you'd love this guy. I knew them when they're really young. I'd met them in the summer. At cam neely's golf tournament. Little kids running around. And if they're anything like their dad or They're going to just great. I mean there's what they're already by the great players but it's nice to hear that their leaders because off everyone is you know not everybody's leader. No they've been they've been brought up in this game the correct way like they like you know like we were out in calgary a couple of years ago and we you know wall waltz one of our mature scouts. Pig wallpa- keith. And so he was with us and you know he was there with matthew and and Walt set it up that the the broadcasters the trainers meet up at Joey tomatoes and he told matthew matthew come on out and meet up with the guys and then he he stood up and said he matthew like this. Is this. what it's all about you know. Take care of these guys and you know you see you see that natural progression like what wafted with trainers what the older guys how they treated trainers and then they get the next generation to treat in the way. Give them bonus money. Whatever these guys don't make a lotta money all those little things this could truck boys. They just know what to do and how to get it done. So i'm a huge fan bottle. I think they've got some great prospects. I think they drafted well. I i think they're up and coming. There's no question about that for me. And i like their coach. I'll be honest. I really like the coach. I thought that was a really good pickup He's got them in the right direction. Yeah i do you ready for that. Stevie on a boy whom shock So there he is darren pang. Is there a nicer guy. In hockey in media than darren pang no bagel. yeah i well. Gordon gordie wilson. Right woody is right up there you know we. We had him on a few shows ago on on the s. wpa and he's great. But darren i. I met him years and years ago. He's an ottawa guy radio. He's i think he went to bell high school. And i know him and i know his sister We worked with his brother to mike at At bell media. Yeah great great guy dares just wonderful you know. Invite you to listen to the show so well-spoken and he's a great analyst. You know i. I pick up his games every once in a while during a during the season pre covert. Anyway i did. And you know he's a goaltender as everybody knows and he was had a great great amateur career as a junior and midget and You know he stuck it out tons of injuries that he had That moved them up and down from the minors and then then he just couldn't hack it anymore so he went to chicago. I think in eighty four play till about ninety and that was the end but he went onto this unbelievable broadcasting career. And what what. I really like about him and i'm comparing him to a couple of other guys who i didn't like goaltenders who were analysts On hockey broadcasts is a lot of them. the the the goaltenders Thinking thinking glenn healy Who's the other guy. Steve who was around for so long. And maybe still. We got two goalies who were analyst gregg melon melon. We us yeah so millan and and healy to Think they goalies never did anything wrong when they when they were breaking down games and goals melon with hanging. Tom apologised he would always he would never say that was that was terrible. That was a bad goal. He would always say oh he'd like to have that one back. That would be the most dramatically critical thing that greg millen added a goalie. There's many things that make darren pang grape. But one of them is. He often points out. What the goal did wrong you know. It's not uncommon for them to go bad move. There shouldn't a done. The butterfly should covered the post. So he's he's really good. He's really but he's one of the most friendly guys great laugh You've got a million stories He's of. I mean you posted your whole life stevie and when you bring guests on it's great but it can be a little stressful if you i don't know how this guy's gonna react at you know we're gonna have to like pull water out of iraq here You know put going to be pulling teeth to get and that happens to everyone but all of this all you gotta do is go like this. You hardly get his last name. Oh ladies and gentlemen. we'd like to introduce darren. Hey jerry what's going on rather you know he was. He was just great anyway. I loved his take on the sense. He's he's he's he's pumped up about them So that was good. That was good through the name. The name for the the minor haughty hockey category. Let me try that again. It through the name for the minor hockey category midget out. Did you know they banned that. Now it's gone. I hope not come on scott on a little midget humor come on. Well i'm we're talking about darren pang to it. What is he four. He's five five. And you know what i didn't bring it up yesterday as i pulled off some of the info bottom off off the deadly accurate wikipedia and they. They said he was so short in that that he had a sixth hole over his head. Rush scott the best line off of the show on the suspended as you guys are russ loves a white claw during the show and darren had the red wine going and z cracked open. Easiest pouring it. Roy said something along the lines through your whole. Yeah yeah it was good anyway. It was you know he was great. Great daddy weighed in on the senate. So what do you think of that. By the way that they've changed all the names around his it's just based on age now you eighteen u sixteen and the like you know my attention span. It's funny it. Bring that up because the other the third show that we do is this is inside. Curling there with kevin martin and more hanson. And you know they're they're always talking about junior curling in you know in sports in general everyone everyone agrees that you gotta keep young people interested in the game. Hockey doesn't suffer from that but but curling does right. It's it's still has the image of an old man sport and then we're gonna lay laying a take on you eighteen. They should maybe move it to you. Twenty two and if not that maybe move it up a couple more years to you. Twenty four this. You have youth games. That started sixteen. I'm just like i totally lost on all that stuff so i. I don't know when when you look at how good the kids are now stephen that they're they're signing them earlier. They're taking their scouting earlier. They're them earlier. They're dressing them way quicker than these in the old days. That stuff doesn't mean much to me anymore. You know When you got kids playing in the nhl at what eighteen nineteen twenty right eighteen year. Yeah so i don't know i. I don't think i need the u eighteen anymore. It doesn't mean anything to me. The age i never watched and go. Yeah that guy. I'll tell you what though he's only sixteen seventeen crazy. I'm talking more about the alzheimer's would look at it and go rolling their eyes right that you've abolished a name like a midget scenario and gone with ages. Across the all ages is always going to be important to classify where kids belong But the abolition about a year ago of the name midget. Some people raised eyebrows. at it. Me personally. I have no issue with it whatsoever. I treated just like all the changes of names like washington's nfl team like edmonton cfl team I totally different. I just don't care about it enough to dig my heels in like. Oh i love the name when i don't care one way or the other what you call it so so but somebody just don't like change. I think is what it comes down to. well then. when are they going to get rid of. Its gone in midget. It's gone to all of these little tykes or whatever these call them all all that stuff you so just okay. You're fourteen year old. Said you eighteen you sixteen fourteen you twelve utan and so on okay. So let's jump in and The thing that grabbed me a little bit. I gotta say was thinking about final cuts. Because that's what it's all about today teams across the nhl right now. Getting their final rosters finalized guys on waivers final cuts and the end. It's all unique this year in that you have to variables these six men. Rosters make things very interesting in how you're going to handle them but on top of all that is yet always sucks to get cut. You've been cut from teams before we've all been cut from teams and it blows. Everybody hates it. But if you're in nhl player with an nhl dream like getting cut and not making either the main roster or this six-man taxi squad that really sucks because normally if you get cut as in nhl you're not really everybody explains where you are in the pecking order where you are on the data chart how far you are away from getting back to the nhl. You just go down to the american hockey league you put your head down and work your ass off and you hope in your mind's eye on molly one injury away from ca- call up well this here in twenty twenty one is so transparent in that. If you don't make that six men taxi squad at least then you know exactly where you are in the pecking order and that is not very close at all to a call up to getting back to the nhl. So that's one part. That sucks cut because of covid. Steve's that you're saying there's no. There's no games in the american juniors. So that's my second point is the american hockey league and the c. h. l. the major junior ranks. They will not be starting their season for probably another month. Now so you have no place to go to work your ass off and get back to the nhl. You're just gonna unless you find a gig. I guess in europe somewhere where i would imagine with their seasons in full swing. They pretty limited opportunities for guys to come over from north america. Airlift them in for what a few weeks until the other season. Start back here it's just a crappy situation to be. Cut here in twenty twenty one in the nhl well and everyone when you're talking about the dream right so so the dream the dream to play in the nfl it trump's every fact about the possibility of you making the nhl. Okay which is you. And i both know and everybody else is. I don't know you got a four percent chance. If you're one of the seven jillian hockey players okay. Who are out there trying to make the toronto the show. oh god it's less than one percent less than one percent so everyone knows that going in. Everyone knows that going in. Except when when you do have that dream and you do get called up or that you are. You do get drafted so that just goes out the window right. It's like we need need. We remind you although we're drafting you today come on up here. Put the jersey on but you got about a two percent shot now. Okay of of making making the big leagues. It's a tough pill to swallow stevie for sure. No-one no-one likes to be told. You're not good enough But it's it's the bad ass world man of professional sports right. It's i. I don't know how they do it. I hear a lot of stories and guys at traded or they get caught in the day of social media. Now they're hard to get a phone call. I don't think anymore. Tons and tons of examples of guys saying i heard about my demise on facebook or so are a twitter poster something so throw that on the heap of a of of you know wrecking you emotionally when when that happens to you. Yeah and speaking a wreck in yourself. You gotta check yourself for iraq yourself when to talk about the evanger canes story. Andrew kane is filing for bankruptcy. We'll get into details about that.

I think if everybody was honest with themselves. Ajay mr had that terrible terrible image. That terrible situation back in february when it had a cardiac episode on the bench in the middle of a game against the ducks and so he collapses on the bench They cancelled the game or at least postponed the game and i don't they ever made. That up is covid hit about a month later anyway. He was revived by medical personnel. Do using the whole defibrillator business and regained consciousness and three days later he had to have a one of those implants to make sure. His heart's normal rhythm is back in play and so he's placed in long term injured reserve shortly thereafter. And he didn't say the about retirement at that point and nobody wanted to say much about retirement. But i think james. We all knew that he's thirty seven. He's one stanley cup. He's actually a triple gold member Because you wanna cop an olympic gold medal and a world championship. So what else do you. I mean if you're maybe if you're twenty four and you haven't made your money and you haven't really gotten that taste of the nhl to the way of that would. This is a veteran whose accomplished everything. And now this seems like the biggest no brainer in. Nhl retirement history to me. Yeah well i was. Always you know crazy impressed when he had that incident. Okay call it a heart attack on the bench where collapse that When he was able to address the pressed whatever that was twelve hours later day. Later that If it's me it's like great career. Thanks a lot. it's been a beautiful ride. I'm out. And i love my life up to now but i just had a heart attack Okay so it's a little different steve. If you're an accountant you know saying well. I can go back and sit at my desk. But you're frigging hockey player hair. So i i. I really looked up and raised eyebrows going. This guy is not retiring right now. What what does it take you know but it gives you an idea of how much they love the game right when he when he didn't. I read his comments this morning to. They're they're kind of interesting. It's it's he makes. Some you know reference to was a great game. It was a dream come true but then there was also kind of this. Negative vibe about shit happens in your life and you gotta give it up. You know it's it's it's going to happen and You know it's come to an end so so it wasn't all roses here. You can go go redes- comments i don't know where it was where you got it from from what source. But when i was reading this guy is kinda pissed you know has to give it up it almost sound like it was sort of a doctor's order something but and we have this conversation a little bit about tom brady right. There's a guy's forty-three why why do you want to continue your career in tampa bay. I don't get it. I don't get it while it's not for us to get because we don't have the competitive fire that these guys do and that's what led them to the top of the mountain in their respective sports. So yeah even though. He's thirty seven. He's just one of those guys that You know ideally he wanted to be dragged kicking and screaming from the game or as you always talk about with rask ordinal. Sometimes you don't in a lot of cases you don't retire you get retired. Right for jabot mr medically speaking. He was He was retired. He had to buy and i bet it was his family that it was at the front of the line demanding retire. Yeah you know. What else is lots of hockey players including the great one. You know that that you and i and everybody on the outside the fan For example just talking about jay bouwmeester. It looks very clear to us. Okay you got to retire dude. You got to hang them up you gotta get you get on with your life. You're young You know you've you've come up against it here. You tempted fate here with with having a heart attack. So do you and i. It looks easy right but a bunch of guys in the nhl. It's like it's easy for you okay. But it's very difficult just as we spoke about how tough it is to make it to the to. The big leagues is really difficult for a guy to come to that day. Right to to feel comfortable with it because they fought so hard you know their whole life to stay in the league to get into the league to get drafted all that stuff. So you know a lot of veteran guys say you do it. You know easy for you. Say it but put yourself in his position and then you wake up one morning okay. I don't wanna do this anymore. And even bomb eastern. His comments said you know this is the greatest gig ever ever is playing pro hockey so they always call for their head you know and and you know when their members of parliament are cabinet ministers. You know there's there's a bunch of shit going down with cabinet ministers who've in ontario for example traveled and another in all sorts of trouble because they travel during covert call for them to quit. You know my dad was a federal member of parliament and he said man you know you you start off in student politics. You become an alderman. You become an assistant to to an mp and all the stuff you fight your whole life and when you finally get there okay it's going to be fifty two thousand people who are gonna try and drag me out of this job you know and i think the nhl so a lot like that. You know so gay. James san jose sharks vander kane is gone. For chapter seven bankruptcy kane has elicited debt of twenty six million dollars and six active lawsuits filed against him where the sharks and loving hearing that news and the stack though financially. That really grabs you. That you're twenty six million dollars in debt. The guy has already made his career earnings in the nhl. Well over fifty million dollars so before the age of thirty somehow this guy has blown through almost eighty million dollars to get where he is right now. Unbelievable how what happened. We know anymore. Details well we do. See him in vegas quite a bit. That'll do it. That's what i thought right away the other one would be. I don't know you you. You bought a bunch of real estate or something that went in the tank. Yeah plus he's active right. He's still he's still playing early. He's still got a long term contract left. He's gonna burn through boy. I mean If he does twenty six million dollars just to get the even. That's about a whole. I would guess that's close to half of the salary that he has remaining in his contract at ease and a seven year seven million dollars per season scenario. So i guess I'm guessing. I mean under bankruptcy. I guess on an the details of bankruptcy. But i do know that you're not necessarily paying everybody back at one hundred percent but it's still it. I mean god that is just such a horrible mismanagement It is a pseudo cry for help. Hopefully gets his act together because that is just nasty again to think to be aged thirty. And you've already blown through eighty million dollars in your hockey life. If you're old stevie money from this guy okay at at what point do you what what point you say. Well we're gonna start getting paid back when he stops paying back okay. Well you'll mill We haven't heard from someone. Wanna give a shout. Where's our got to know okay. Don't worry knew him for five mil okay but Where where have we heard from a vander. Cao's is five mil. No no don't worry about it. He'll he'll at one eight now. It's ten fifty at at. What point are you looking at this going. I don't think we're ever going to get paid back. I should laugh the poor probably in a terrible spot but so his bankruptcy filing also includes a one point five million dollar gambling loss last year. And that's that's part. That's what's transparent. Who knows where we are beyond that seven family dependents. Six active suits centennial. Bank is seeking over eight million dollars monthly income of ninety one thousand dollars one point two million dollar credit to sports and this one i did not know about Or forgotten about a one point eight million dollar counterclaim against a woman in a twenty sixteen battery suit so that is just some of the details of the bankruptcy filing that are in there so it so it just brutal hard to imagine. You don't hear you don't hear that very often right with with especially with the dole being so big. We had gordian right and We were talking about some some salary. Some exorbitant salary of eighty or ninety million dollar deal right and god. He's been around thirty one years. I think now doing the doing the sense right when they came gordon. Who's in florida right for the announcement at the wheel and he was. He was covering sports long before the sensor at two and i said what what was what was cooking back then gordon. We're big salaries back then. And he said i was. The biggest deal was when a guy nail down his two hundred and fifty thousand dollars pension. Yeah they used to kick in and around the four hundred game mark. I remember there are some guys that were around there. I think a guy named believe it was doug shed. He was game or two away or something like that. I think i'm not sure if he got to it or not but there was all kinds of discussion about come on. That's close enough. Help the guy out. And then gordon said now now. Their per diem is two hundred and fifty five k. Ten k. a month or whatever i don't know what it is but you know well i recall just jump in. I recall when they first came out with nhl salary disclosure. There were guys in the league when it first came in in the late. Eighties there guys in the league. Mic and twenty five grand a year. Unbelievable right larry robinson right larry. Robinson was working paving highways. That was like seventy two. This is like late eighties right right. Y'all you often hear. I know a financial adviser. A guy here in inevitably baragan he was. He was wayne's business advisor In in still does it actually needs. He's close to eighty years old. But great guy. Smart guy and you. It was explained to me. One time what happens is when these guys come into the big dole. Okay and people preach to them now. You'll hear your here a lot of talk about get you know. Get your affairs in order when you start to make this big money. Get a guy to manage your cash. Okay get a guy to manager cash and listen to them and what happens with a lot of these guys steve. Is they make the money all of a sudden. They're going to buy a bar okay. I'm going to do that. i'm gonna. i'm gonna invest in a golf course you know. The legendary stories was terrible. And for a bunch of guys and and ian always said you know those guys. Those guys started to say they're going to go into business. Okay the entertainment business or or real estate or something else that they're taking a flyer on okay that they know nothing about he said that's the equivalent of me. Jimmy lace on a bunch of skates. Saying i'm gonna go make a bunch of money in the nhl. But i don't know how to skate right and it was. You know he said there's there's some sort of lure to these guys when they make a bunch of money to to not literally gamble but but but you know not a vegas gamble but to to gamble on a lot of the other stuff you know the end up giving a lot of pressure from other people know when they make that big door to get a lot of their circle of friends coming at them to give him money to invest in money and stuff. it's always about chasing the rush right if you're a celebrity no matter what you're doing you're very famous It's about chasing the rush and if if that becomes commonplace for you whether you're an actor who's famous and everybody loves you and if you're an athlete like vander cane people cheer for you and And worship the ground you walk on you kind of lose a sense of things in the rush that you have as an nhl star. It's hard to replicate when you're not out there on the ice. And you're always chasing that rush. Some people find it in drugs and alcohol. Gambling is a big one. The rush that comes with that so it. It's tough i think. And it's hard to imagine missing something like that is tough when you're making the kind of dough that they will wonderful life and everything but it's one of those walk a mile in their shoes so used to that rush. You must be just bored out of your tree when that rush disappears for whatever reason whether it's temporarily during the off season or after your career is over drugs and alcohol that never takes anyone down. Yeah you're right. that's what. I invested in stevie. I was making pretty good dole back in the old radio days. I i got a good investment. A bunch of coke and booze every week. That'll there's a really good return on that investment stevia anyway. Hopefully the guy can come out on the better side of this god. He's got a lot on his plate there right you gave six seven different examples of. Yeah people coming out. I'm here with lawsuits family gambling debts. Well you remember a couple of weeks ago. We were talking about those youtube guys. Logan and jake paul. These guys are at their boxing. And instead of the blue evanger kane wanted to jump into the fray like. Hey jake paul. I'll yeah anytime anywhere and now you start to go okay. At the time. I was like what is he. What does he have to do with jake. Paul do they even know each other. Like what is the tie in here. He just randomly reaching on social media to fight this guy. Oh now it makes sense. You're looking for a little payday. Maybe an mop up what you owe here on the positive side. Steve wasn't vander. Cain leading the charge here at at black lives matter and social injustice in the league and racism. Yeah he was part of the hockey diversity. Alliance and as i believe right. Good luck to him. I hope he hope he can come out. Like i say on the other side on the good side of it it sounds like a full on one hundred percent addiction. People think about gambling. It's like oh it's just something fun to do but you know if you have that addictive personality. I mean gambling gambling addiction. It is a very real thing and a lot of athletes have gone through. There was a guy for the ottawa. Riders was a tremendous collegiate player and Briefly played played for awhile and the nfl. the think it was the colts. I think there are baltimore then and he came to ottawa to try and be a quarterback here in brazil was all this career but it all came apart for him because he was a gambling. Addict has guy's name was archly. Stor and It's an interesting read to hear about his life and he seems like a quality guy. Everybody liked him but once the gambling addiction took hold it absolutely destroyed his athletic and personal life. Yeah right and what happens to you. You know at the old addiction thing is what happens is when you you sort of begin to dabble in. Jeez i may have a problem here. I kind of look at it yourself. After probably and years years of denial and tons of examples. Where maybe you shouldn't be doing it so then when you turn around and face it okay. I got a problem with this. What happens to a lot of people. with addiction whatever it is pornography gambling food drugs. Booze is they begin to think. Okay i'll just will this away. Yeah i'll just say okay. Don't do that anymore okay. You're affecting your life. You're harming people job family finances and all that but but most people go through. Okay i know. I know this is wrong. I know right from wrong. And i'm just gonna stop doing this when you can't. You gotta get help you get help. It's showing time and time and time again that not many people can kick stuff on their own so it's it's a tough row to hoe. So i wish him all the best you know. I wish. I wish him all the best and hopefully can deal with it in a positive way. Yup you see some of the photos that he's put out there. In the last decade there was a famous photo that he tweeted out. I think it was or instagram. Where he's doing the phone thing. He's got an absolute massive wad of cash. Needs pretending it's his cell phone. He's also taking photos of himself. I'll just wearing his shorts and he puts a pile of cash on his back and he's doing push ups right to show he's training and working extra hard because he's putting money on his back as extra weight Those things don't exactly endear you to people But clearly he's got some issues going on hopefully he he mops it up anyway Closing today. I don't know if you've seen any of the photos of how majestic this could be but there's gonna be a lake. Tahoe event a new twist on the nhl outdoor game of the avalanche vs the golden knights. And the bruins verses the flyers and The one thing about having no fans able to go to the game it really sets up the sky's the limit for playing an outdoor game. And if the won't have to worry about all the amenities bathrooms in the like the stands. How the sight lines will be yada. Yada you just play game and you worry about you know a few cameras around and just put some boards up and it looks absolutely fantastic. The league announced a new event the nhl outdoors at lake. Tahoe and I don't know if you've seen any of the the photos but it sure looks like it's going to be spectacular. Well i do. I do know what that is like. Steve i live out west. I live three hours from the mountains. Aspirin so i got a very good idea what they're trying to do. And that's what. I used to think when they when they first started the outdoor game the the heritage classic was the first one here in edmonton and they played it. I call stadium. It was kind of cool then. Everyone jumped on board right. They did i think michigan michigan did the biggest college hockey game outdoors. Like seventy or eighty thousand people or something like oh the big houses about one hundred thousand. I think yeah crazy And i thought well if you can do outdoor games make him in nicer places you know so it's cool. It's cool that they're going to do this because it is. It is beautiful. There's there's there's lakes around banff and jasper and cameras are kenmore That that they could do this but can you imagine the logistics steve of trying to put an outdoor game together. And he's crazy. I was always impressed that they're able to pull it off. But that's a fantastic idea. That'll be the coolest thing ever to have an outdoor game in the mountains. Yeah it looks beautiful and my first thought when they were doing it was that good they can actually have it like true pond hockey. They're going to be out on on the lake. But the just on the side of the lake it'll be on the eighteenth fairway of the golf course at edgewood. Tahoe resort near the california nevada border and So that'll be. That'll be pretty cool. It will give you that pond hockey feel and like i say since you don't have to worry about fans at all it. It opens it up to a world of possibilities. And i immediately thought. Hey the canal would be amazing and one at one at have install arinc right on the rideau canal right and You know you'll need to put any grandstands because each side of the canal you put the cameras on each side of the canal. Zoom in on the action. It would be fantastic. I think that'd be the best idea ever right. That'd be the coolest idea ever or have it. What's the lake called at the end of the canal up on preston there. It goes into that lake. What do they call it down. Dow's lake yeah put it there. If had practices there. I think i think the sense of on occasion gone down there denote or practice. Yeah they sure have yeah. That's a good idea to all right. We've we've This whole situation. We've come up with the greatest idea ever and so i feel like we can't go any further. We've pete we should shut her down right there. Any final thoughts today. I do steve. We're going to do. We're gonna do an outdoor podcast. Okay we'll wait till it drops you're gonna come out here. We'll wait till it drops to about thirty below here in northern alberta. And we're gonna do some. Imagine the audience steve turning tuning in you know coming in droves to see the outdoor as wpa. I think i think There's a lot of issues there and all the tackle the one by one.

472: Vladdy Slims Down; Mike Weir Comes So Close; Jordan Binnington Challenges Everyone to Fight

"The steve worn projects sports. and whatever. All right welcome again to our little piece of podcast real estate. It's the s. Wp were schmooze ended up and reveling in a world of sports. Whatever stephen jimmy back again james. Laurie be marches here. Springtime right around the corner jays opening up spring training. You gotta love it across the board. How are things you know. I couldn't believe things are stevie. How are you good good. Good good good Baseball is up and going. What kind of my thought. It was kind of like the beginning of february losing track of the days. Anyway cool all good. You know hockey's getting good right. The leash Leafs are killing it. The orders are absolutely killing it. The they lost to the grease the other night but they were kind of like ten into their last twelve games or something. So they're cooking. I'm starting to watch. More games is getting a little closer. Stevie right can start to juggle for position. Okay out my ottawa. Senators going nicely though. They now they got. Beat up by calgary the other day six to three but other in action tonight as the ca- jackson. The inflames play for the third time in in five like extra third time. Get five games together in eleven days. And if they can't get the joke that there's no like we've been talking about the big battles. These is all animosity panning out. Like i would've thought right. But anyway the sensor played pretty well in the big picture. Yeah so. I got so. The baseball is up going sewing. Because i was flipping through my guide and i saw the blue jays in thirty. Mike what are they running. That shit from last year's no no back bay playing games already so that and then i was glued to the set. Today stevie mike. We're on the senior tour. He's played more than i thought. I thought he's only played in a few but he's played a dozen or so. I think already or over his since turned fifty anyway. The guy was leading wire-to-wire back. Nine sunday four shot lead and loses loses shot or actually lose by two shots just like he played so well all weekend aggressive hitting the driver. All the time nolan up you know. Hunting pins in doing all that stuff. I i i saw it on and off over the weekend that i watched front to back today and then he got. I just got a little tight. Stevie didn't didn't You could tell. He laid off the throttle a little bit and and as often happens. You know you hear that. I used to hear this stevie sports go. That sounds ridiculous. But it's very difficult to play with the lead. Want really and then it could see how difficult it was for this guy to play Play with lead. He didn't make a bunch of mistakes. But he didn't make birdie on the back nine and kevin some way onto his final three holes right and kevin sudden southern He came birdie birdie and Yeah just just real demand like an old trout and it just goes to show you that even though this is a former masters winner you know he's had all the injury troubles and dino. He went through a divorce. That was tough and so he kind of somewhere around two three years ago. He just started to himself again and now that he's on the champions tories. Uh he's kinda back and Is playing pretty well and so this opportunity to finally win for the first time in such a long time. I think there's an excitability that goes without thinking and we've all felt it. You know stupid skins game where you're hacking it around with buddies on the weekend is like hey or or you know maybe m. you're trying to make a number right. My number's always. I've had the fantastic day. If i if i break eighty i've only done in about six times in my life but if i break eighty that's always my thing they get excited about for me. It is and so. If i'm like i need to come in with a par on eighteen. I mean i'm just so frequently useless because i'm so excitable right it. Just it changes everything. It does matter play for diapers. Know as they say represent the cool thing about golf is so you're a fan. I'm a fan. Everyone loves golf. You know it's it's it's right in the kitchen right over with the big majors so they they really got. It really got locked in the wall to wall now. They've got big huge sponsors. Huge charitable angle. They've raised a billion dollars. I think over the years when bill b. as in bob billion that they've given to charities of adding badged that ain't bad so it's it's got everything you know but the really the really cool thing it has that no other sport has is. You can be a fan okay. So i'm a big dustin johnson fan ratings playing the best golf he's got the shit kicked up into the seventy eight or something but So i you know you can watch these young guys call caller mark our right and we were talking before the show right. This young goes already won a major The the new breed justin thomas. Who's the other kid who's jordan. Speak-out joe jordan's jordan's older now. He's coming back a little bit. But some if matthew wolf. I think as a young guy with a quirky swing anyway so you can be a fan of those guys okay and then the middle guys are like i am at you. Just mentioned jordan. Rory dustin johnson. Justin rose you know those guys who you know. A webb simpson right there into their third nitric. Patrick reed yeah. There's a bunch of them right. there's a bunch of so normally any fan of sport it kind of ends there. It ends it right. But they've got this senior tour right that all the guys. You like the hallway. Along like mike. We're a huge fan for obvious reasons right. And then he dropped of site for all the reasons you mentioned and now it's like back in here stevie so it's it's a brilliant brilliant play by golf that they had the seniors. It's been around a long time but it dials yen right. You get to watch your guy be a fan of guys. Tell their frigging seventy in. Yeah it's great because you know it's all about we all love nostalgia so i think any sport. The nostalgia factor could be really good. I don't like nostalgia and old timer hockey for example the old nhl players because they've gotten fat they're getting getting slow the thing about and i've said this before on the show i think the thing that the champion's tour works nicely with is that these guys turn fifty and And they still look pretty good for the most part but the actual sport itself. I don't look at a golf swing on the champions tour and say oh my god look us low. That that swing is right. It looks very much like the pga. So it's still pretty good. It's not it's obviously not as talented. They don't quite is far some of the guys but it still looks to a fan watching on tv or in the gallery like the normal pg and that really adds to the nostalgia doesn't kinda record. So that's how i that's why worked so well that that's the reason it works the other re now. Listen i'm not so naive as to think you can't have fifty year olds playing hockey it just it would be. It's hockey's to shitty but senior. Golf is really good. They hit it to seventy to eighty three hundred. You know some of these guys. The other thing is to play all the courses do right. There's ton of golfers we get. We get to go out there. Play golf lots of people are gonna play well golf at any skill you know. Ten is to a certain degree to you. Know that people do it. But anyway i that's why i love it. I was. I sat up today was flipping through the dial Watching curling by the way i win record homes in the final here against enersen who we interviewed on the on. She's she's great yeah. She waltzed her way and she. She wrapped it up in about eight ends against alberta today So she's in the final home in here in about twenty minutes and then i sat in on. I've slipping through. And then i came across the i said oh. Yeah for god's sakes. Mike we're in on. I was dialed right in so anyway loves the sport. Love golf. Waiting on mike. We're going to get to watch them for long time. No yup and we're certainly pulling At least i am for although anderson. We we we're big fans of when we had her on the inside curling she's She's a treat. she's she's lovely And rachel homan his. She's most of our audiences is here in ottawa. Where i am and Obvious everybody's pulling rachel home in two but a the one thing that we should touch on is the fact that she's been brilliant all week and she's doing so while eight months pregnant and i think well yeah i mean i think back and i'm sure you can too when when your wife was pregnant with your kids how. It changed all her movements. Can he hand here to get up from the couch here. And just Just awkward and stuff and to be eight months pregnant and it'd be playing the way she is like just some serious shot making this week. That final shot in the tenth end against quebec in the playoffs. I'm like oh my god. That's fantastic is like a triple raise to To to basically tie up the match and she'd eventually win and i think and just phenomenal. It's phenomenal in any circumstances. But when you know your body's changing throughout pregnancy to still be at the top of your game is phenomenal well. And that's port steve eight months. Forget so oh yeah. Don't forget you gotta you gotta crouch down into the hack there to time know. It's like i've got. I've got hurt right there. That can't be very comfortable for the poor fetus. Stevie in there you know anyway. Amazing maze hope showed. Hopefully she'll pull it off. Might be getting tired to go. They got wacked yesterday. A game nine one by jennifer jones in one of the sort of juggling playoff games for position but They went they had the best record. They went right to the final so anyway in amazing story mazing story of this girl. Even if she doesn't win you know that she. She's pulling this off high level performance being eight months pregnant. Now i wanna talk about this hockey story that popped up on the weekend. And that was jordan. Bennington of course became the darling of the stanley cup playoffs. Not this past year. But the year before helping the saint louis blues when stanley cup and we all were blown away because that year the saint louis blues were dead last overall the nhl in the month of january. And they rallied and real in the league and won the stanley cup jordan. Bennington was a big reason. Why because he didn't come up to the team until around january so great story anyway fast forward to today and jordan. Bennington is While he's talking to the nhl for the way he came out of the game. San jose and saint. Louis have this old fashioned nineteen eighties shoot. Sorta battle and bennington is taken out of the game as sometimes happens when you allow a lot of goals but he does not go soft into that good night or whatever the sad thing he basically snatched. Yeah he basically seem to be trying to challenge every san jose shark. He came across so he skated out. He got the red line. He stopped turned around went to one of the san jose sharks from him and then skated away. Then saw eric carlson and cross him and on his way out. He saw devon. The sharks goalie was chirping him. And they shove each other for a minute. Now they bennington probably goes well. He's about four inches and fifty pounds heavier than me. I'm going to probably stay away from that guy and skate off the ice and So i was amazed though with the amount of people on both sides of fence. Some people were saying all man. 'cause the blues camp came back to win that game while he's showing leadership and fire and And high compete level. I love to see it. And then other people were saying probably non blues fans. They were saying things like what a childish tantrum that was. What poor sportsmanship that was. You've seen the video. Jim what do you think well. It was kind of harmless. Okay so so the act of what. He did there three or four times. You kinda jump the guy. One of the look mate. Maybe a little bit went block. He tried to throw a punch the guy a little bit. I think the second guy and then sort of went over to the goalie and just kind of these innocent trump. Steve really to be honest. But you gotta ask why you wanna inside this guy's head and go what's that what's that all about. Okay you're an experienced goaltender you've been around. No one does that okay. We don't we don't want our goals doing. So what's up with that. So they'll figure that out in the locker room right if it is what you guys are. Shit no one's hitting anyone. And i'm gonna take it into my own hands. Okay well if you're going to do that then take really take it into your own hands. Okay right throw your mask off. Throw the blocker down and go. Fight dum okay. The other goalie by the way skip. So so i i. I'm curious i'd i'd love to hear what the guy says about it. But but i bet it's i bet it's speaking out about his own team and not them. I is my. I don't know what you think right sometimes. Sometimes you'll go after guy because they're just they're assholes right and you wanna take a guy down but that was kind of my guest that he's doing this to send a message to his own team. Here's the other problem with it though. Steve is the league. There's there's an unwritten rule in the league in hockey. Okay is you don't with goalies. Okay we gotta have our goal is. You can't get them injured i. It's vital of position there too. Vulnerable right steve. You can't be checking goalies. They've got all sorts of equipment on the break a leg. You know if rights and they don't do it right stevie they don't people respect the goal is they don't do it you better smarten up pal. Okay because goalies are in a position to be respected and we and we do that okay. We could throttle you lots of times when you're outside of the net and do but we don't we pull up So you keep this shit up though you're asking for trouble. Yeah if you're at their challenging people than Than the card carrying protection. That goalie has is off the table. Where your concerned and yeah. You do have to be careful with that. If you're at their challenging. Is i think that sort of that sort of changes the dynamic. I mean youtube was filled with goalie. Fights where guys are just giving it to goalies because they do something moronic and One thing that's clear is that goalies are allowed to fight other goalies and dugue. Nick was very much ready. This is his quote. I don't know why he skating around pretending to punch guys. I just told him. Get off the ice and calm down is one hundred sixty pounds. And he's out there swinging eight guys. We all get frustrated. But if you want to get into with somebody fine. Nick was more than ready if he wanted. Yeah again i think. I think it was a statement to his own team. I think i think he was looking at them. That'd be my guess but but like y- like like you just can't do that dude. Okay you you hat as a goaltender way. Different stephen some right wingers running around trying to punch everyone is beat the shit out of him right right. So what do you do right. You're you're a forward your a skater and this guy comes up and blindside you punch in the mouth with blocker and then you turn around and go well. No i can't fight you right. Heard of it's unheard of no forward or skater has ever fought a goalie dude. So now you're pissed right. Now you're pissed going knock it off man knock it a rip your equipment off and we'll go or something but like he'd better be better not be surprised next time when it comes out of his net to play the puck or cycle the puck around the back and someone frigging slew foot. Some you know. Evanger cain had something to say about it too because Well he doesn't mind dropping them and he's always a loose cannon and he said. I guess you'll have something to report in his next interview. That guy seems to do a lot of talking too bad. I wasn't on the ice for that. So there's evanger. Cain never shied to involve himself in a story. That has nothing to do with him. But it's the same guy. Remember that after a youtube star one a fight over an nba player. He's immediately takes to twitter. Fight you take you on next so yeah always a loose cannon but making it sound like he would have taken binning to task and i guess smack around. Bit by the yeah. I don't know when they play again. But but don't don't don't blame san jose man if you watch that game when they come up against bennington again and all of a sudden you got got. That's a lot of times. That guys are losing their balance and falling into the goalie. You know boy. that's the fourth net crash. This boy they're having a lot of trouble anywhere catching in it right. It's going to be like you ask for you. Know i think it honestly i don't know there was a lot of strategy to it. It would be what. I would have classified. You know when we were kids as a good old fashioned suck fit. I think the guy was probably upset. I don't know that he had any strategy going. I just think he was in the moment. Just absolutely furious and somebody said the wrong thing and he's losing this stuff like to me. The way to handle being upset with your team's performance is to do what mark are downloaded. The calgary flames captain had just watched is team get mauled by the ottawa senators. And there's probably a bit of stigma around the league. That goes with that right. One thing to lose to the worst team but it's another absolutely blown out by them which happened in the first game. Six to one calgary came back and basically pushed back in a big way and marked yordano in the pre game skate. You could see him out there absolutely barking at his teammates. Usually it's all loosey-goosey goosey everybody's looking at their hair in the reflection of the glasses there skating around and going through the motions jeered. Anna was barking at the guys. Like you know sharpen up. Let's go hostile up. Yada yada that to me is how you kind of get through to the players. And by the way giordano had the quote of the weekend the on ice quarter the weekend he hits connor brown with a big hit and brown goes down in a big heap and he skating away from him. The cameras. the the microphones actually pick up him screaming at connor brown. Get back in the gym chris. Good my favorite's my favorites that avoi- that's great little bit on air. A little bit of chirpin for sure is always a good thing. Let's take a time out here on the program. James when we come back we're going to get into a little more about You don't know pausing you weren't sure there's so many places to go. I know i know. But i will probably talk a little bit about spring training and And putting on a little weight or taking it off in in one place case. So we'll talk about that.

Thirty eight still drive in orleans so as you mentioned a out of the gate as we both did. The blue jays have begun spring training once again And they opened up against the new york. Yankees is very weird for sure. 'cause it's getting mild here. We had a very spring-like day. Here on sunday february twenty eighth home recording. So it's starting to feel a little like spring but you know it's it's been a lot of snow you've had some cold weather out now boorda so it feels weird. That major league baseball is happening somewhere even in spring training and the story with jays today and we'd heard rumblings about it was decided in the flesh dec- the absolute impressive weight loss of one of their young superstars. Well i'm not sure. I calm superstar yet but certainly totally elite prospect and that would be vladimir guerrero. Who's basically lost like over forty pounds. Did you see any of the video. And you're dead today crayons. I did you know he kinda he kinda got away with being heavy right not not to just kept on what. What a brute you know. What a brute guys are monster right. he's going to be something else. In the meantime we'll look at the size of his ass you. You can't be that quick rating was huge. You know like a big guts. And i said this guy's gonna lose weight. That's what i thought last year. You know what watching them play or the end the year before right when he came on so. I'm not surprised that eventually did happen. You know who. Who's the last guy. Steve who could play overweight was a sessile fielder since it was the last yeah yeah right where the guy was but after a while. It's like okay dude. You're done good for him. Yeah forty pounds. Forty two pounds or something he lost. Yeah and i and i don't. I'm not attacking anybody For for carrying some extra weight I'm carrying extra weight. It's like it happens to the best of us but if you're going to start accepting millions of dollars and And and playing at the highest level in your sport. You've got to accept that some people are going to scrutinize. You will scrutinize. You're hitting bill. Scrutinize your defense. And they'll scrutinize your commitment to making sure you're in shape for the season and i think that that's part of what has slowed down vladimir guerrero in that he could be such a. I mean he's a great player. He still great player. But it could be all the better if If he was just a little quicker defensively if he's just gonna quicker around the base pads. And so i think good for him that he's that he's shown that level of commitment to jays hitting home plate steve moore with his. You know what what the great baseball announcer. I had Friend of mine. Who did the trapper games. He was really good. And there was a pitcher named bob. Battista who was in the drivers when they were the affiliate of the california angels and he came back and he played two or three years is back in the eighties and he came back one year. Really fat really fast and i sit and drink. We used to drink a mickey of rum. Al coats is his name and he was the play by play. And i'd go to all the games. I loved and i go sit with them and we'd get snapped. We we drink a bunch of rahman he was calling the games and they bring. I think it was reliever. And they bring the bringing. What is his name. Bob bob bastian out. Bob bob bashing coaches the play by play guy bob astronaut pitcher and it comes in about a thousand overweight you know and he steps on the mound for the first game and and coaches sipping on his rum and coke. You kind of hear him like this mid sip and he sees him walk onto the amount. No wow wow look at bastion here. Taking them out. Well i'll tell you what folks sure looks to me. Like he's he's hit the plate more with this fork than he has with his fastball knife and fork then he has with his fastball. Anyway bartolo cologne is the name that immediately comes to mind for me. Is that He's still pitching. Di bartolo khoza bartolo cologne. You're still going out at forty seven years of age. Big sexy as he's called and he has just been you know. I'm sure it's been fifteen twenty years since he was actually In actual appropriate major league baseball shape but Man that guy hung in there for such a long time and he's still pitching though not in the bigs anymore is currently a pitcher now with demont clova of the mexican league. Also i m league for sure but Yeah he had some great moments running around the base paths in such stretch. Everybody freak out anytime in get a double or something like that But yeah i'd send you can think of other guys major league baseball. If there's one position that lends itself to that in team sports it would be being. Pitcher was the guy for the yankees Oh gosh what is heavy guy. Yeah big heavy guy. He had the snapback hat all the time and Often jersey with ccc bath. Y'all always just retired. I think didn't he. Or maybe not i don't know if he retired In all he did retire. Yeah you're right the other things. Tv is you know if if vladi if they're looking maybe should lose some weight. Maybe it'll pick up your bat speed and stuff right but for sure for sure pal. There's no argument here about your lateral movement. Here is your right. If you're playing infield here pal okay you got this just in dart around like a bullet. Okay okay and that ain't a bullet and you are not in the same category and by the way vladi okay. This is the day of the big fat guy in baseball. Went out with babe. Ruth maybe the last time okay. Just just billion okay. You're looking at old pictures of baseball players here. So it isn't it fascinating to watch babe ruth if you've ever seen any old films of him like it just and he's he's obviously big from the waist up but he had these spindly little legs to go with it. He was just a not particularly athletic at all. Fascinating that That he was his famous and athlete as he was an as accomplished as he was or the other. The other thing right. I mean how they could hit it right little spin lee back or look spending in babes on the other one i was looking at was okay this this baseball glove that you gave me here on it. Looks like my hand is like mickey mouse. Okay can we can we. Can we tie the fingers together. A little tighter okay. Can we put a little more padding steve. Can we double up on the leather. This humming the ball in there and i'm wearing the golf glove effectively right. That's worn out okay and too baggy. Jesus i was always when i see the pictures those old gloves holy man yup and the other thing is like everybody played baseball back. Then you know. According to all the movies i've seen they're all twitchy. They're all sped up a weird way to play baseball. Twitchy and stuff it might have been the actual technology of the there is look like satan every anyway i like it. I'm a big fan big fan. Oh yeah yeah and it's still another month before the real stuff begins but it is cool that the boys of summer are back and that's a good thing because Well right about now. I think everybody's pretty much sick of the winter and sick of being in the house and so the sooner that gets behind us. It'll make all this lockdown stuff just a little easier still with The whole weight thing. Kelly rudy from hockey night in canada at a hot. In just a moment. I so he's basically You can see these alone in the booth. They're they're about to go to him so he's kind of just he's he's all well leads in looking good and he's got sued on the suit might have been a little tight but yeah yeah he sitting there waiting for them to sort of throw to him with a question. You know like kelly What did you think of that first. Period or something like that and while. He's waiting while you fill in the rest. He's got kind of sitting there while there's video with it to folks you can check it out so he's leaning against the desk standing up facing the camera got his hands in front of you know just draped raped in front of him clutching his wrist like one hand and he started out to make sure good for the shot. That's coming up and He's you can tell he's thinking about and then goes to exhale a little bit. You don't give the okay whammo. Fuck the button pops off right open. Yeah and he's to recruit because he's only obviously is only seconds away from them calling action here on the shop and and he tries to looks down and and i think they're rolling.

Today they're glenn walton dot com james as we wrap up another edition of the s w p any final thoughts today stevie. I have a final thought for sure. So years ago when i lived in edmonton with my two roommates we ran out on our rent. Okay we didn't have enough. We didn't have the money to pay pay our rent right so we came you. Stay classy jimmy. You stay into my rent could lower class. You ever did okay so we decided that after four o'clock the guy was gonna come around again looking for the rent so he said let's just move. Okay let's get this all. We didn't have much stuff. We only had a couple of sticks furniture in fact we said well. Let's just leave it. Okay like who cares what this smelly couch. And the rotten beds. Your george thorogood. Song is what you are. Yeah so we said okay. So we just vacated the place de jumped in our cars and drove away. Okay okay. that's what that's what we did and rent was expensive deep. It was four hundred and eighty dollars a month for this whole apartment three bedroom apartment. Like one hundred fifty bucks was just in the fifties. When was this was it. The eight was in the eighties. Okay so that was a brilliant idea. Steve until i'm driving around going. Where am i gonna live tonight. We're here and i showed up on the door. One of my longest and dearest friends at kevin lowe him and i go back as like all the others. Do but we've we've stayed very close over the years and he's a neighbor of mine. He lives of four or five blocks away and i showed up at his door. Okay not not not sort of sheepishly. Head down just. He just opened the door. And i just walked in with my duffel bag or green garbage bag of clothes and said kate kev. I need a room here for awhile. He's like no problem. Okay i get it jimmy. We know you pal okay. We understand no questions asked you down. Because he he lived alone at the time. And so i ended up living there for a couple of months or something enough to get get get an apartment anyway. god bless kevin. I sent i sent you the if you wanna stand downstate. Let's say you're just standing down no standing down okay. Roles tiny. don't doubt now kevin is. Kevin has been inducted into the order of hockey in canada.

Mindless Midnight with ThomasYu - Yu Dive Deep, Fun, and Life!

"Welcome ladies and gentlemen host of the mindless midnight. Show would like to welcome you to the latest episode full of late nights. Humor as we explore. Just anything with our very special guest without further ado carrier host. They can josh. Some content with this podcast. Maybe if i defensive. We ain't commonsense included unless they've been given permission. Hey everybody welcome to the mindless midnight. Show our special guest. Today is thomas you. He's host of the you dive deep podcast. And we're going to get into that as well as a lot of other shit. He's been doing. Stand up comedy. He's been at improv. Troupes put himself out there quite a bit and i'm excited to get into that. Firstly how are you today. Mr thomas tommy. Since we're best friends. Now mcclay tommy. You've earned that right already from light. Ten minute intro. We had i was like these are soulmates. This zoo tom. Now not thomas but now doing fine actually I know we had this plan for a couple of days actually ran in sioux boy. Right up here and then the kind of connect with inter discord Because i'm new to podcasting and you know he's awesome. He reach out to me. He's like i'll take you under my wing. I'll i'll show you the world. And i'm like daddy take show me should decrepit my wings are like there's no like anything to grab areas fucking free fall going in style as she just lord me like hansel and gretel. He's like. I'm just going to act like i'm a professional. Thomas kid just looks up to me. Look good we make it look good for sure. Awesome so starting off. It's really excited me that you do stand up because the thought of me doing stand an not saying i wouldn't be good at it. I'm just saying. I think i might like shit myself on stage and know. What do you mean no you. Don't listen to it. Like a handful of you guys podcast. Honestly stand up is literally like like when i tell people i've done stand up a lot and stuff like that. It was like. Oh wow. you're like a different breed. I'm like jokes on you dude. Just like the talk. And i have like i have such low self awareness that when i'm up there stand up essentially storytelling. That's all it is like you're just up there doing a monologue and so as long as you think of a story like okay now let me punch it often exaggerate some things and consumed on and i. It's honestly fun times. But when i was listening to you guys talk. I'm like all right. These are really good personalities and when he first mentioned that you guys were like comedians self titled comedians. At first i was like. Oh they do stand up like the comedy background. That i'm used to like after hearing you guys talk. I wouldn't know any different like if you guys are like. Oh yeah i did stand up a bunch of times to. I'd be like oh. Yeah i mean checks out. I heard you guys. You guys are funny. So you saying like self deprecating. Oh i can't do it the only reason you probably feel like you can't do. It is just because you haven't like pushed yourself but as soon as you start doing like that was like the thought of doing it as lot scarier than actually doing it. If that makes sense talk thank you for coming so it feels good to hear too but honestly like spotlight's on us bunch of people looking us. I mean granted. A lot of them are drunk. Already feeling you can just like the mike and lap book. That'd be a good way testing. They would just laughing at because shit myself. Walk up stage right. There's just leads twenty second segment or maybe you go up there and you just want yourself to get it out of the way and just let it. And then they don't even like don't even straight up. Don't even acknowledge what happened. The janitor that comes clean the mess is going to have his own routine. That's better than mine. He's like oh my god. This guy went again. I swear to god he was here yesterday. I try okay. This material got josh comes in the deer frozen small down quite everyone's cracking up because they think it's part of he's like komo. My wife hates. Because i smell like everyone's still laughing and so how was your first time onstage. Honestly it's kind of like what you guys are saying. I'm so the very first time. I went onstage. I made a mistake. You would think that the first time you perform you get excited. I was pretty young. I was. I was still in high school. Actually and you tell all your friends you want everyone there to support you do when you perform in front of strangers all ballgame. I could test things out. That i don't think is funny but i want to see if it's funny but like when your friends are there like they know you and you know them so they know trying too hard or get into your own head so i invited a bunch of my friends and things like that and they came and you know they watch and i'm not gonna say i bombed. I didn't do very well but you know terrible either. But i think the mental thought of like all right. I'm just making. I don't know how many were there. Let's say they're like fifty people there at least like my friends and like that and i was just like honestly if it was like fifty straight people that were just like there. It would have been fine. But i think it's just the mindset of that because they've heard some of my jokes that i didn't tell me about long story short. I'm actually like i feel like that was a mistake but like back. Then you would never know like you would know not tim. You're like that doesn't make any sense. Your first time doing but honestly short after the first time was like ripping the band aid off because i like my confidence was low afterwards but then i was like i mean if i go again like is going to get worse so then i tried it again with the nothing to lose mentality and like when you're that young you care about what everyone thinks of you. Show me you care about lakes. You care about blah blah blah. But i was just like a fuck it. Whatever i'm gonna just give it a shot. And then i did a lot better and better and stuff like that. So it's kind of like ironic that you know inviting people you to support you. That kills you. I could yeah. It does make sense. But when i first went into that question i was thinking to myself. Yeah like if you invite a bunch of people it could go one of two ways depending on them. They could make better for you. 'cause they can open for laugh at things that maybe aren't that funny to make. It seem doing great seeing once. You would think that. I have kind friends. You think that their new me who the jumping around. I would tell like a joke and they'd be like i don't get he made me come out to see this. I mean alright. I guess i'll say things on xbox when he gets killed by exactly exactly. So you're you're thinking that. I have good friends jokes on you. My friends carol so like anybody happened to bring like a to throw a little honestly. If that actually probably happen at the time. I probably would have loved it. Because i would take the focus of how like nervous way how i feel like a mean but you know naqibullah story that i got tomato onstage. Yes obviously exactly. Yeah that's awesome man. So so you've been doing that for like ten. Years is from what you told josh right. Yeah actually. I feel like the reason i stumbled upon stand up and things like that is for the of obviously you guys don't know me But i'm actually first generation korean. My parents were immigrants in english is actually my second language so when i was growing up imagine and i imagine like a really. I mean obese. I mean a really fat. I was really. I mean i'm still pretty choppy. But i was like hugh. Yeah like when they're so fat. You see like wrinkles in their arms kind of thing. It was like really bad to the point where like an elementary schools. Yeah exactly some kids would literally asked me like you wouldn't be a sumo wrestler. When grow up thinking back the essay so naive enough to be like. I mean no not really within about it career choice talking to my age like put on a couple more pounds in your their son you're a prodigy out. I'm not gonna lie it if i were that bidding. It does look like a fun sport to protect because well not only that. But this is something that would be worth looking into. What is the life style of a sumo wrestler. I get a lot of. He'll like chile kings right. That's exactly what i'm thinking. Yeah absolutely and i mean they can't take down there they can't even see it so they probably get like pretty little ladies. Go down there and honestly at that point. You're literally at like the. I don't care all i need to do kate sleep and just get it. Do and push this dude out of the ring and make sure somebody's available to change my diaper. You'd walk all right time to eat whether we lose all. I know i gotta say it's very impressive. You know the english language second language better than we know it as our main only fucking language on the more better under the goodest at this spokane. Okay he's well. He's got grammar pretty good. He got mc right here. And i also have like just absolutely be throw. Throw honor here. I'm so happy to see a blackhawk shirt. Anyone hockey i didn't. I don't know maybe maybe this is like a little terrible said but i would not have thought reince scared at all for arche. I'm actually really glad you brought that point up. Because i feel like that's where the whole story was going so when i was growing up i was really overweight. I didn't know really how to speak english. And the few words that didn't know how to speak on a heavy asian accent. Which by the way unless you're really reddish apparently. It's not sexy accident unless it's just australian or british if it's like an asian actor it's not sexy i'll do it all the time whenever back then when i would get in trouble or in trouble i would always if i ever got hold over or if i'm ever with you guys at the mall. Remember where kids in trouble. Oh no i don't know how to speak. I don't know now. Just act like i don't know how to speak english anymore than that. I mean they don't know any better like they don't know me kinda thinks that to my advantage here and there for the most ex- exactly get out of jail. Big know big. I think for the most part growing up. I tried it like get away from that now. I didn't want to get bullied or anything like that. So i was like all right. Don't be stereotypical. Asian kid just like do wet like white people like so. You fit in hockey. My friend come on now. came like all right. I'm gonna cling onto hockey super white. And then so do you actually like it or is it just an illusion. Okay so i really really do like hockey really like football. The most and then hockey is second for me But i mean it's just second me i don't like i do love Hockey so faking. It actually made it into be like okay. These white people are onto something they they like. Good sports i'll follow along. Did you ever hear the story. i think i don't remember. What teen was josh. You might know but there was a guy that put out on twitter. And he was like he was he was a black guy. He's like dan you wipe you been keeping hockey from me. I just went to a game. And this is the best thing i've ever seen. Oh yeah and then got picked up and send tickets and never did. What was it like saint louis blues. But i don't think it was. That was it might have been tampa. It was it was a blue team. Maybe i know exactly what you're talking. It was like the funniest trending on twitter and stuff like that. And i'm a degenerate on read like ninety percent of the time so when i saw there i was cracking up. I was like this is a mazing. Yeah you got that one on me. I do not know how to use it whatsoever. I tend to account. It's like just gave up. I used it. And i got banned off of ten minutes and abandoned media. League is okay. So i got banned from the sub. Reddit called funny stuff because give banned from that. Okay okay this is. this is my thing. I read their little term thing as things like a don't post non original content and that was mainly the big thing. Don't post advertisements fair enough. that's cool So somebody would post like. Oh this is such a funny story about blah blah blah and. it's like a big paragraph of a story. And then i would find i post in there. It'd be like hey. This is a really funny story about when i got a dent in the back of my head from skateboarding which is true. I have dented. The backup ahead from scouring and we talked about it and podcast episode. So josh out. A lot of stuff in our episodes recall him we call them mindless moments. I just posted the link to the story and bright. One a type out the whole thing i just you know. It's a lot in the way. I tell it makes it funny. You know it. Yeah yeah does the state committee. So i did that like twenty times you know was it was it was it was wrong i got i got a message from like a modern auto moderator. That was like even been permanently banned from the sub. Reddit funny stuff. I don't like how if you'd like to dispute this message back home on us rep back and i'm like hey i just posted a link to my story instead of tight the whole thing so promotion is not occurring deaths. I mean you didn't stay. So i just said screw it. I'm i'm kind of done going to. You're not really missing much. You're just like Like have a love hate relationship with read it. I love it. Because it's just. I think all the social media platforms. I'm not really social media too much red. It's the one. I definitely browse around the most just for lacking and stuff like that but if you don't follow the culture or rules or whatever the hell you wanna call whatever read it is. You're in for a bad time. Lake sometimes out compose like a really funny comment and it will get like a bunch of downloads. I'm like what the fuck and then we'll be like but and they'll have like ten million likes and stuff. I'm just like i'm calling it. A day includes definitely a different demographic that it more so chance to. And i feel like there's a lot of kids on there. I mean there's definitely everybody's on there. And i i will say one. We were having a little bit of success with read. It was working out pretty good for us because we would see our numbers on youtube in a lot of the external sources majority started coming from. Read it like wow okay cool but yet i just read it so i'm about to get brigade so nice knowing you guys swatted or something by all those guys you know how to use red definitely. Use it to your advantage ours. We do not know how to read it whatsoever. We are total idiots. I i'll be. I'll be the reds embassador. I'll help out the podcast and all right self promotion. If it's not my podcast go we. Should we just like an entire network to share a look at. It'd be like you don't get it. No no idiot. oh i'd be like nope. yes exactly friend and mark. He's got an email. he just made twenty six. So speaking of podcasts. What is what is yours about. What are you typically talk about. Yes so it's ironically. It's like almost the complete opposite of this. This is a good podcast. My podcast issue. No i'm is about. It's like so. I've been really getting into like a philosophy lately. Mindfulness and things like that. Because i'm of the age. I'm married by the way we're thinking about having a family and stuff that yeah try. The existential crisis is coming to me right now. I'm just like way if i have a kid. I'm responsible for life. But i'm a kid so what is happening so it's almost like i am going into my own brain being like all right. I gotta make myself someone that. I want my dad to be like. I want someone to be looked up to. And i was like man. I'm such a shitty person. I'm going to be a little bit. And so i kind of been going to the self-discovery so the whole point of the podcast it's called you dive deep like you guys mentioned and the whole premise of the show is every single show. I have in new guest on and every episode talks about one question. And it's something i usually pick catering on whoever comes on like i'll talk and be like okay. Because of their background expertise this would be a great question and we talk about questions. Something as simple as just like you know what. How do you define success. I mean that's such an easy question at face value but when you really start to dig deep into it. You're just like okay. Maybe there's more layers or boobs are and then they're like other questions that get even deeper than that. I feel like a one of the podcast. I'm actually gonna be doing this over the weekend. The question is really weird. It's if you yourself was a separate person like in your own life. Would you be friends with that person. I was like okay. would i be friends with myself. I'm like now. I'm pretty annoying. Works yeah like this subject because it would definitely punch myself. The josh would hate himself. Josh would have. I would annoy myself because there can only be one. You know like like if there's another one of me. And i'm like this guy he's saying all the fucking shit. I'm going to stay the fuck outta here dude like no i don't i don't like you. You're no. i wouldn't like him. I don't think i would. I would i. I do philosophy. One of my. My favorites else is a pascal wager. Are you familiar with no. I go when i try to act like i know what it is as you guys. I'm not like oh yeah here. On to josh. What i knew exactly who it is or even better. Oh yes josh inciteful. Why don't you explain that for nick. Doesn't know he doesn't get it. He so dumb. Like the dumbest person i've ever met explain it like as if i'm not that's me. Yeah i would love to and we are going to. We go on your pockets. One hundred percent in. We'll talk about it. It's gonna go on his show both of us on that. Yeah that was the deal i made. That was the deal and they might head jokes on you. I got an audience of four people. So i'm bringing nothing to this podcast. Not a problem adding goodlatte asking fun. It bringing a lot a lot of fun. Talk i agree i agree. So what are some of your. Inspirations for what you do whether it's comedy improv. Just all your life or the podcast. Yes some of your i mean. Obviously we're probably inspirations. Oh yeah i would have to say. My inspirations one hundred percent is i love like the interpersonal relationships that you build with people just talking in general with just people new people like you guys like looking at the technology nowadays like i'm talking to you guys relation to you author. You know the internet and all that kind of it's just cool to me. And so i wanna take advantage and just able to get to know more people. And like i said i'm in this weird nebulous time where i'm just really trying to figure out who i am and the best way to do that is through other people like i have so much. I can learn from guys whether it's podcast here. And just you know eating dad or jazz or to or how to get a cool skateboard injury in the back of my head like there's so much i can learn but an honest word this relationships with people and i feel like podcasting is like a perfect way to do that when you get the new guests on and we're living in an age now where i feel like people don't have conversation especially with the pandemic If people working remotely and things almost all the communication you have unless it's someone in your house is like all through tax so it's really rare where people even talk to people now as you guys have unfortunately probably found out from this podcast. I enjoyed talking a lot. But that's kind of like what the passion has always been whether it's comedy whether it's podcasts. Or whether it's you know any of the hobbies that i have always has that one a trait of an interact with people. Can i have fun. And can i just be able to get to know different types of people and i think that's what it's all about so that would be fair to say that your inspirations are people that talk a lot which means i am inspiration. Mom call your mom. I told you i could do it. I'll be like the goal starring. Hey mom yeah. Tommy used as inspiration. She asks them who is that. Obviously it's my best friend that i told you about your being a bad mom right now. Now i definitely have come to joy as i mean we initially started the podcast. Kinda just me and him and we always had the idea the back where we wanted to have guests. It's honestly become something that's feels a lot more better more better. Take art art. Okay bula back fuck nick. So that was in our initial goal in condo. Find out that we enjoy it more than doing the regular mornings. Look i mean we do enjoy talking to just each other. But as an entire river new dynamic with another person and getting to be a complete and total stranger like honestly like how many people walk by every will maybe used to because it not that we would walk by each and every day and like never never paying me minded under just another body and and it's really funny. Just throw this in there. my wife is like doing. This would be like her fucking nightmare. You know it's like no way. And i'm just like i'll be in line at the grocery store and be like blah blah blah and then we talk and then that happens and she's like no i love the whole sixty thing. Stay away like and i'm just like that's me in person. Be touching right now that has mean instill to this day would be being person but i. I could talk all day to my camera and screen. I mean you were not real. You guys are just a really good program to the lamb. Been a fun conversation setting those good awesome. I love it so so you have pretty good support. Then with what you're doing from your from your wife and your family and stuff like that. Oh yeah for the most part. They kind of. Just let me do my thing. They're like oh. Yeah tommy just doing tommy things. I call that support. Oh yeah. I get that a lot of honesty. A lot of denver's. Of course. They always support me and stuff like that. So when i actually like i said my podcast is super new so i actually told my way of hanging to do podcasts and balls you know getting guests and things like that and do a podcast too. I'm like you understand. It's a great florida beautiful people and she's like wait. You actually know them. Like i mean. I met him through the internet like okay. You have fun with that but it's almost like because it's so new and exciting It's really fun to be able to get things started but I think like by like support by like friends and stuff like that. Like i feel like almost everyone has a podcast. So it's really weird to now go into social media me like. Hey guys. I mean a new podcast and like oh awesome. Get in line. That's like a tenth. When i heard this month so i haven't done a lot likes advertising. It like a crazy amount just yet. Because i want to have a good amount of like episodes. I'm proud of under my belt and then kind of be like okay. Now i have a podcast is the boba and so i think that's why i'm so excited but ended the day for me. I know it sounds super cheesy. I don't really care if i have a lot of listeners. And things like that on my own personal podcast because for me. I'm still having a blast with it. So i'm just like whether you like it or not gonna make lunch more episode one listener or you know one million i am. It doesn't matter. Because i'm still going to do it so it's well that's the mentality that you can't really getting so many people right right off the back or even for a while. It's definitely a long haul. It you the most important thing. You have to have fun like if not having fun if you're just doing this like expecting right away unless you are really cute. Big tits or celebrity. It's not gonna happen. Yeah and our production value or anything but can look as good as it does and do blake. We have a very tight full followers. That's about it but we will we do and we're is that is so important though. Because if you lose your passion and you're just grinding out just for the sake of getting another episode out you can kinda tell not saying like oh yeah you guys are fake but like i mean like right now. We're just bouncing all for having fun just going on different tangents. It's just exciting. And exactly and i feel like that's just like a really good environment you guys set for like guests like me to come on to feel comfortable enough. Just act like we've been friends forever. Be like here and green jobs doing that. It's awesome thanks. let me show you might nipple. You're i was gonna do like one of the one of the first thing. People did when internet became a thing. Here my but noise. That's all we're about to show her anatomy to everybody okay. How many times that a joke already. I think we've done that in a few episodes where we've been buying actually do. Because that's that's a little weird but we. I don't even have to be honest. I i couldn't. I like my nigga. That's that's i couldn't either i. I'm afraid now. I see that since we have zoom. We can see you people on youtube. You guys can all see us like usual tattoos and tommy here s tattooed. I saw you gotta sleep on your left arm. That is kicked ass. My thank you thank you. It was one money. Let's just leave it at that. Oh yeah i know all about that. I got tired of spending money on tattoos about my own equipment at data go-to tommy. You gotta explain on your on your wrist. You got the swastika there. What's that about. So i really really dislike a certain group of people just totally. Just we took does like remember. When i said i couldn't congressional people can't bullying these. Tommy is not self sabotaging. I swear this is a or. Don't edit that out if anything amplify it talking on his fucking phone again. Hundred get help around here. I mean i'm telling you get the worst interns every. Yeah i want you to hear me say that good more all right well to get a tro march. So we started our podcast. Because i went on a podcast to talk about a video game that me and josh and a couple other people are developing and it was really fun and i kinda got hooked on talking a lot which is weird but like i talk a lot in my wife said you need to have an outlet because you're knowing shit and i'm like i don't want you to bring this home just someone else enough. Yeah okay so so. We started our high cast as like a. You know a fun entertaining morning. Show style podcasts. Where people can listen to it and forget about the ship. That was twenty twenty. So that's why we started. Why did you start. What made you. So basically from what i'm gathering it's more people well. Yeah but it's almost like. I wanted an audio diary for myself and i know that sounds really weird but like i said i. There's so much to learn from a lot of different people and like each time. I have someone on an had these type of deep kind of conversations. I always learn so much. And i feel like that's the beauty of why i'm honest when i say. Hey if i have like ten listeners or ten thousand listeners of course ten thousand meeting feel a little bit better. But at the end of the day i know like twenty years down the road and god forbid you know. Let's say something happens to one of my guests at all. My guess. I've been really close friends. How cool is it a memento that i have this. You know documented lots of different conversations with these different people and not just that you know that story philosophical here. But you know when you're on her deathbed you don't think about all the money you have and all that it's all the relationship the memories so like i'm thinking on the road my money and all that but no. I think it's just that that's kind of what inspired me. I want something to look back at and podcasting is really weird because it. you'll get instant gratification. As soon as you're done with the episode well. The editing process sucks. But but that's why we hired connor. So whatever and carter. You're working for you need to tell me this shit that what you're getting well tanker. We have a bunch of herbs over there phanor connor parker like all those dudes. Yeah i got miller over here. He's shit though. Basically we hired lake lake. Dad's lawyer like we hire those guys go wrong an instagram all day leukemia through thousand wasted. So it's been fun and and like we talked about about like the the kind of like the diarrhea an audio diary or or what have you said something really. My wife took it as kind of morbid. Because i was like. You know another reason why i really love doing. This is because like. I don't know like what if i die recently. Like what if. I die soon and my kids can grow up in here. Their dad like talking and doing all of this cool conversations for hours and hours and hours wife like so they can hear you talk about butts and lie and i might say like that you like well. Yeah it's it's fake. I want my kids to me to know. This is neil me. This is me all the time they would see that. And i want my kids like let's say i died and i want my kids like eventually. Listen sure your daddy's going to be talking about asses in in dumb shit but there's a lot of laughter and the kids would like smile and laugh via you know so that's a really big part too is is you. Can you can have something out there that you definitely can never have. Before feick ever and now we can chronic chronic. Whatever time whatever i'm done i ever heard order smith ensured goodest. That's honestly a really good point. I didn't really think which is funny because when my daughter was born i started a complete folder of everything i started writing notes to her on a regular basis in putting him a note pads in saving them all books. Tv movies that downloaded and put into the drive so like she could know what i like. Or what Bertelli no and things like that. So i've made all these different than he said. I never really thought about this podcast. She's definitely going to have a much different than me. Maybe he should keep your side from her. No dude honestly. She's going to beep. Probably just as fucking while may so she needs to know became fair enough fair enough so we are going to take a very quick little break and then we're going to get into our second and segment which is complete random. Bullshit i made a that. I'm still alive and he'll say you're gonna stay if you don't come back. I find him out. I've heard this. I've heard this can do it. I can do it. I'm native american. All right we'll be right back guys. Tommy from you dive deep. If you're looking for a new podcast add to your rotation try giving minor shot each episode revolves around a new question each week. Munir new guests dive into a deep philosophical question. Like do you fear death. Or how do you define happiness. Specific questions geared to the special guest of episodes. Come join me as we dive the at find my podcasts on all major platforms and once again. It's called you dive deep. You can also submit any topics or questions you like me to discuss in any future episodes at ud at g mail dot com out for to hear from you guys take care. Hey everybody we are back from our break. Hope you did something in the break or didn't whatever but we're still back with tommy and we are going to actually. I wanted to bring up something that we were talking about before with with his podcast the process in which he runs his podcasts. I think is really unique. So tommy explained how you find your topic for the person that you are going to have on your show while first of all before. I answer that question i appreciate you letting me continually shamelessly plug my podcast because your podcasts obviously goes out to millions of listeners. Don't mean that in a demeaning. What you guys have a much bigger audience than i do so i really actually do appreciate it. But no my podcasts. What i like to do. Like i said it's a little bit more deeper philosophical but that doesn't mean it's not funny or anything like that it's whoever my guest is. I'm sure you guys know more than i do. Like everyone is different. Everyone has different ways they talk. I'm sure i'm much more annoying than other guests who had vice versa. I'm sure you've had much funnier all that kind of stuff. So depending on my guest. I always like to think of specific questions. I know a lot of times. People are like oh. Tommy must have a list of questions depending on what gets he gets. That's the question they're gonna get. What i typically do is like. I don't screen them. I always have the conversation of whoever is gonna be my guest and be like i would. Just tell me something that interests you or tell me a little bit about yourself. And as soon as i get a little bit of context and stuff like that like spoiler alert. I'm hoping to have both of you guys on for podcast and during that little break got to hear a little bit more from josh and things and when he was kinda explained some things i was like. Oh wait like three four amazing questions. I would like to ask. This guy serves personality of a brick. I have to have a talk. No one's gonna listen to no no not i like to cater it soon. My guess because at the end of the day you can't force our guest to talk about some random topic. I mean you can but it's not gonna be fun or as if i pick a topic or if my guest company be like no wouldn't this be a really fun question to kind of dive into then i'm completely okay. Just throwing out my play and be like you'll let's run with that because i feel like that's going to be really really cool. Absolutely so it's a personalized it's almost like a personalized session of phyllis philosophy that can go very deep and honestly. I could equate it to some sort of therapy depending on where the conversation goes which is really cool. That's i really like that. So josh and i are both going to be on his show separately. Because i'm gonna end up talking too much. Josh isn't going to be able to say march. Because that's i i talk. I talk more josh. Let's just put it that way. So i wanna maui. Give josh time to have his moment. With tommy and then i want to do the before we move on. That was my favorite part. I talked too much and blah blah blah blah blah blah and. Yes yes yes yes means morning shift. That's yeah so that being said we liked to do our second segment of this show where we ask completely stupid random. Ask questions and see where goes we. Have a lot of questions will probably not gonna get to all of them. And that's okay because you'll probably come back on the show and then we'll just we just. We never run out of questions by popular demand. Asian guy that was on there that one time with the tattoos if we derail for twenty minutes because of one question. That's fine that's totally cool. So whatever asked stores come up exactly. So i think i'm gonna ask stupor important. Have you ever eaten a piece of candy with the rapper. Still on it dude. All the time all the time. It's not like a starburst thing you know when people think sexy to do the a. What's it called the cherry stem on. No no. no you upgrade. You unpeeled entire starbursts. T being the fat obese kid. I was like This is too much. i'm just gonna eat it. It's a little waxy. Whatever the sugar is. I want to hear people thinking. They're high oh shut up starburst deliciously juicy okay so i did the same thing. I don't know. I thought about this question that it made me laugh because i remember hearing a rumor going around in middle school maybe elementary school. A rumor going around the daily papers edible edible and i'm like okay like start that good but i mean i'm not kidding. Classy the fuck and reverend kids more d like the now and later so those ones were really sticky and with never able to the entire but being apper so there was always like that little bit. That was kind of like a scar. A little yeah. Yeah my funny story though with the starburst rappers like this was like when i was like middle school. Kids were dumb and then they're all like oh. Yeah it's like a sexy that means you're good at this. And that and i tried to get that done and then when i finally good like tom you know that just means you're good like sucking dick right. I was just like oh. I stayed put okay now with that said i have to get asked. Are you going to ask that question. Would you rather suck suck a dick ninety ninety percent or the last ten percent job right. I see the predicament. I'm in the way continue to suck on vascular hot dog for a long time or get a salty. Okay wait this. Is the last movie. The last ten percent land. Because i'm goddamn finisher all right so percent just for the sake of conversation. Where does the deposit go. Does it have to be deposited into my bank or does it. Oh kirby deposit about what you do with it afterwards if you spit or swallow that's entirely up to you my mouth hole like eat a candy wrapper mansoni and my standards are so low to begin so fair and a half to say i mean that that that it sounds like a lot ninety percent but i mean if you do really damn good job and just get them. They're really quit like that's it you're done like maybe twenty seconds top. No you gotta be real good inspired. You answer my question for me. I'm pretty good at unwrapping starburst represent my mouth and if my middle school life me anything what that mouth do though so you so your. Your final answer is ninety percent correct. The areas kill myself. Gag myself literally. Die so i was. We talked about this with another guest. Screaming ju- good friend of ours. We talked to this about him and we really got into it. And i had brought up a point that i thought was good so we can all answer with ninety percent as well because that ten percent that finished going on. That's rough yeah. We don't know if they happening. They tense up and they stare into your soul in your lucky enough and maybe some deserve. When you're like all god okay. Now i'd rather have done this for like fifteen minutes rather than this last exactly exactly. Okay and then i thought of well if you choose the ninety percent who the fuck is going to say. I'm not sit there so you're a ten percent or wish. We all do that though as guys like that. That's that's the ninety percent of art so your that's true sometimes in your head you know one timing and either oh god already like. I thought i could do better coach. Fritz like god. Finally fucking. I just wanted to get this done ninety percent where everyone has that. Dick you know and let me let me in their coach an issue. So why didn't you just start on the guardian closer offer. This workman teamwork teamwork dream work. That was one hell of a segue because that wasn't a plan that's how drive in old. See that's the thing that's the best thing about this show is is it literally can go anywhere in the purpose is for those of you. Watching listening is to forget about the dystopia that will probably become the world soon so dr. We reminded do So the next question. It's innocent because we didn't know how cool you were. You have any experience with tasers you know unfortunately not and i know that sounds really weird but like remember the age jackass was like all the rage twenty years ago and everyone was when i want you to push down the hill a shopping like all that of stuff and of course know all those guys but like like tasers. It's so weird. Because everything. I hear besides the fact that you probably you know if you get in a certain spot you shit yourself in it besides that. I hear like it's really painful. And then right when he stopped it's gone. I don't know if that's true or not. Like i have never been. I'm not gonna act. Like i know what i'm talking about but it's something i would at least one to allies experience in a really weird way. How about you guys. Is your muscles tense. So hard like really really hard and jokes on you. I got no muscle. It's all fat really a it. I was so an apt. But yet the the actual act of being what were the charges lewd and lascivious thirty. I don't even know what you're joking. I don't learn s. That's actually one thing to say. I and i think our recent guests just and would be very impressed. Audibly surprise restaurant so we just had we just had a a week ago or so. We had a guest on that was. He's in swat team and he's been a cop for twenty years and stuff and i. I'm surprised you didn't tell them. You've never got arrested. Because that whole interview he probably thought you were like a scumbag. That's fine and i got that impression. Especially after that soup earier look of disappointment. He went from laughing to this real quick. When i mentioned like because i mentioned we'd and his face is clearly. What on that's not. When he made the face. I was thinking those. Whenever you brought up the the fricken all the dead bodies he's seen and you. You spun it. You spun it into like well. That'd be a good way to get rid of owner. Yeah your comfort. Louis did bodies okay. Okay and we left our. I laughed at no he. He laughed but at first he was like. Whoa i think that yeah 'cause Definitely something else. So i mean from listeners. If you guys have been seen that devlin check it out but also still conditioned Go anywhere i mean. I haven't even the next question which is I didn't want to i. It's a two parter. But i didn't wanna get one part in front of the other. Basically tell us if you can a story involving a fart. How easy peasy. So does actually happen recently. And i'm a self deprecating man and so you know what sometimes when you have just like an upset stomach all day. It's not necessarily diarrhea. But you keep going to the bathroom you you feel the pressure. That's exactly what it it's not like you even have kuba all day. I'm like oh man do that. Just a lot of greasy staffer. Going on the answer's yes completely. Terrible person with my diet but like i was going to. I was battling this all day. Long throughout work whatever's going to the bathroom here and there whatever and so fast forward to the night you know takes melatonin pass myself out or whatever. I'm like all right. This whatever it it'll be all passed by whatever laying in bed. You know scrolling through my phone like i always do for the next four hours but could never fall asleep and then i feel a little uncomfortable economic like it's like two in the morning. Whatever i'm just gonna rip it frigging written it all of like hold on. Hold on mind you guys. It's not like i'm really. I'm twenty eight years old white sheets. i am married. Share a bed with my white and that's the most recent memory with a far. You know you wanna trust them there. You're you like your own sent. You know what i mean but sometimes dude they deceive you. That's where my trust issues. I think really stemmed from. I thought i could trust myself but yeah dude you absolutely kill. You blew past my question and made it way better. And we're proud of you. I just love it. That's home before i finish it. Though the way the comedy doesn't end there not only did happen. But your wife had to see it. You have to explain it. What am i gonna do. I have a cat. Oh yeah. Mango mango did that in my pants and my under. I don't know how we did it but cats are smart. There's no so. I have to explain the whole situation. Mean like check this out the skidmore pulling your just usually. Yeah so the comedy doesn't have to explain and it's not the best when you have to do your laundry that early in the morning when your wife is art. It's not a fun time. Whatever 'cause maybe. She deals with that at her school. Know she has a heart of gold sheet a special education not gonna really surname or she gets really weird about that kind of stuff but she special education she has heart hardest so big it makes up for the fact that i'm just a total piece of shit so all over the bed the same same boat it's awesome. My wife is like the most humbling nurse like autumn super-sensitive me empty biggest asshole just completely straightforward people. So it's great and its sanity okay. You realize josh. Tommy is here in the same position that that we were in. You got to trevor. Which is what you're doing. you can have a kid. You're not trevor. it's a joke will end up. I ear nick and his lack of time. Es consecutive thank you know. We talked about that on the literally. Only have two hours three hundred sixty five days two hours for myself. So that mean choice is yours. man does that one. she's wise. Just have one agile. I read the manual somewhere. That's how you traps. Ones one one is manageable to like. It's a little tough. But i mean you can get there and then when they get a little older all right all right and then three is just like or her. Like i don't know fuck is happening can pull the age org chernick edges could on pregnancy stake in town near pregnant and then she is basically then like you could just like play it off. You know get rid of the diet eat whatever you want to look legit and they sell those online. It's always comes up positive things. That's something weird but all the time and get results so i'll try it again a couple more times more game or kale anymore. Days in the world. So have you ever been in a limo. I have. I have and it's not actually two separate times. I know i know sorry. I don't mean to be rolling up here but i am literally royalty but no in the very first time was kind of like it doesn't because it's just that cheesy oh go into prom one of those things and so like did i really ride the no because we just go from here to the high school. I don't know why people do that. Like it's like a drive and all let's go to limo. Gosh dude i don't understand anyway But also another time. I went to a from philadelphia. I went to a sixers game and my stepdad randomly. He's like oh yeah. We're gonna go see kobe. Bryant R.i.p koby bryant I got to see kobe. Brian because it was just raining game where he canine via. Yeah kobe bryant. Baseball career went up in flames talker. Come he's now. He's now he's having to deal with a twitter shit storm. Oh by just want to mention. I think this is off the air but today was like one of his anniversary days of yet. Today was the one year anniversary josh. The grand slam cautiously wait. It's been a year since he's died. Yeah but isn't that crazy. It is crazy a whole year. Yeah dude you're wasting away you're wasting your life away feeling to have literally blown away right now. Because i really felt like that only happened like fucking three months ago your sense of time though kind of just especially especially in like kobe times. Where josh yet. I have been in my house like a harvard since february of last year. I have not left for anything but like one doctor's appointment for my daughter where we didn't even go anywhere we'd like. We drove into the lot than like went back on a. Yeah i guess my perception. I five is like really opt holy shit. I did not realize it was year. So it's definitely not too soon and he stands by nominations. Gone now you got anymore so recently died. I've i've never been in a limo. I didn't go to prom. I had a girlfriend at the time. And she's like. I'll be able to get you to go to like calm. I was olympics. That's how that's how she could've gotten you there. She maybe well and then like prom. Time came up and she's like so. I'm not i told you like forever go. I don't i'm not doing it. She's like okay so obviously the win. jock the school dumpster. It maybe i don't really care. Yeah now i've been. I didn't i was only in high school for two months. I didn't do any providence. Care about it by. Did some josh murdered a teacher. And so after. That's why you guys had that swat guy in here because i was like intervention kind of thing we we kinda we kinda rolled it into a probation mike. All in one yeah. They were very generous with us on. They were so speaking of starting which everyone enjoys. Actually is one thing. My wife said to me like if you shit your pants i feel like it crosses the line that i don't know if i can come back from and i'm like where wait wait so if i shoot myself you're saying you won't pursue won't steamy in the same way anymore. She's like. I don't know i'm just worried that if you do i will. And i'm like she sees you as a grown ass toddler. But like if you're not you're glitter own as in baby at that she'd be so disappointed. I mean i gotta be like game. And i gotta watch my farts. I gotta be careful. Like everyday is a struggle man. I watching your. you can't hold on. I just be dreams. Come true just different. My dream is to shit myself. Walk on the life and like kind of like pull my pants and turn flop out in front of her going to do it and you just sit under lab and you just starts smearing around. Doug jump in my wife. Every every now. If i if i did that i think i she would not let like the like i get away with a lot of stuff that you don't say to your dad. You get away with a lotta shit from my house dude. I would go buck and missing in a heartbeat. If i said some of the shit he says so. So i have spanish. She don't take that shoe so like my wife has has has talked before obviously and when she did she knows words to he knows where it's well well well so i remember like i don't know how this came up at work but we were all daring each other to like say it to our wives and i was like okay on. Say my wife. She didn't so this is what i said. She was talking and i interrupted her and said up. You're just a whole for my dick cheese. say probably like like a bucking that cover eggplant emoji. No it was. It was verbal like i said it. Yeah no and then. She literally grabbed an eggplant that she had in her pocket. At the time. No she she went. Roy is and said anyways and just kept talking. Just oh yeah this like that. And that was it because i mean she knows i'm not my wife would have gone off and she would have said you get your ass home and we're gonna have the puck and talk to me and you wouldn't have heard from me or seen me ever again like i would have been devastating. They decided last episode of the mindless podcast. I lost josh. So can you. Johnson grounded in the ground. Yeah but then once they find that my body was dead in a ditch and has been fought by a bunch of homeless people. Nick in become super famous with the podcast. Because it'll be here. Yeah i get people like what i said to my wife so then i felt like an asshole innocent bystanders. I'm just happy to be here. And this guy looks bad. But i'm the guy who she disbands. Whatever that's like not that bad anymore. I mean compared to a you guys gone. I mean clear. So like i said let your dreams dreams man. We're gonna die so sticking man. I love the the segue often. It's just it's what we're all about so getting back into the realm of the very very serious conversations charting where were you during the covid crisis with toilet paper. Where were you at whenever everybody was taking all the toilet paper. Were you in there taking the paper. Did you have how how worried you still need. Willett paper i've got some. You know shit. Hit the fan for you or not or the sheets i mean. I don't understand why you shouldn't bed in your. I don't get no but in all seriousness. I was really confused when everything was going down. Because everyone is always like at some point are normally stock toil you always have a stock and then when everything was kind of going crazy and you saw this chaos everyone you know. I seven five different packs at once. I opened our and so how much we had there and it's not like we hadn't extraordinaire amount or whatever i just looked at i was like i mean. We're still find for like another two three months like do people not understand how to like. Wipe their butts. I don't understand so like never definitely we start to run out but luckily it's never been time read like had nothing at all but wish is really confused. When it was happening i was like i like ab. I just don't use a lot to olympic like. Don't you just use your hand in the wash your hands after. I thought this is how it is like. You know. that's how america americans are that. A lot of them are so stupid it was the funniest fucking thing to realize. People think that they need to stock on toilet paper to wipe their ass as if they're going to have somewhere to put this fucking toilet paper if they if like things are really gone down. These people have no sense of survival. Any kind of resilience like nothing just complete and it's funny. It's actually it really is it was. I thought i thought it was funny whenever my wife texting is like hey everybody's going insane with toilet paper. We just went to costco. And i already had on. So we're good. Head of the family had a lot nair. We already had a ton. So we're like we can just let this ride like we. We're good good. And and not even that a. I don't know fucking step in a shower. Wash your ass like they're still water like i mean. There's so many other alternatives. Everyone i don't know. I thought it was really weird though that everyone connected toilet paper with with the pandemic bake because there wasn't gonna symptom of diarrhea or excessive shitting realize people really cared about having back landman asshole like i tell you a nice because you get you woman. Clean the house. When you're expecting guest yeah wait so then is you never white now. Okay fusty there and then you just go into the shower and wash all always expect my wife to just stick finger to there you go. Yeah so it makes it all the more exciting sweep the porch. Sweep the surprise in there. Sometimes you know it's it's all fun and games it her. Her favorite sport is football and her favorite team. Missed the green bay packers as he really. Is she really a big fan of football. No nobody cares about football here. Yeah ball basketball and baseball awful hockey here. Okay that's why i'm of happy. And mays ago. Yeah it's it's the best in only sport. It's a sport that allows fighting to a degree. I wish they like brought it back to the old where they weren't such bitches about it. It's fighting still is fighting. Still allowed at all or they really try to out. I mean they do try to end it before it gets a little too serious. But i mean if they're fighting they're there fighting. Let let them at it at like that. I haven't lost hockey and a very long. I play the games a lot. Yeah which brings me to a question that is it really all that random. Because you seem like you're nerdy like we. Are you play games soup. Love time recently to be able to play video games but Yeah i definitely play lots of video games. All right. Cool richard richard gaming. So would you like to play. I think i'm in a little bit more casual more recently. Only because you know this whole adult thing kind of sucks anytime. I try to jump into like an rpg or something like that. I hate it when you're in a week because you have a lot of time and then you get really busy when he jumped back to an rpg. You're like where was i. I can't start this like have to start all over. That's what i did with retention to got really far and then i stopped playing two three months and it's a phenomenal game. Obviously return what hell is happening. I didn't even know the other protagonists arthur's name was dutch. I was like who was like what is going on right now and so. I always like a main character or are anyway now. It's a lot of things like that. When i'm more time but i think because i have to play a little bit more casually because i can't segment a lot of time to be able to play. It's more like sports games. I'm a really big sports fan. So i've been playing more that and I can't really play first person shooters anymore. Because i suck 'cause there's a bunch of like stupid teenagers on adderall. Destroy me twitch shot. And i'm just like okay. So this is how you look at and then you guys you guys like sliding and sprinting and shooting like double wheel. Gone like yup. This is not for me. Guys being a little dramatic little sweaty. I still a flame like a and for law means. Who did you mean or do you still mean so okay. Suzanne yada macree and the you're correct raper odds of my may. I have over all over here guys. I'm a good man. i'm not just odd. I don't even know these people. Yeah it's all right now your we'll just oh scattershot. Stop be nerdy dude. I was so mad when they got rid of scattershot tracers bouncer. And you're like. Oh i'm about to end this person's career and you get a touchdown. So do you play xbox or i have xbox that's what i was playing on over watched with a lot and then they started to allow like a little bit of like cross play sometimes here in there and whatnot and then So it's really cool. Because i got to play with people but like i said the older i got the less time i was able to continue mess so i am. I can't play because apparently you need something technical skill in aiming so all the where i like. You don't need a amen. Awesome like good guys. I mean i only play on playstation or pc will link up supply. We'll figure with could carry my sorry ass and i'll just be on the mike being like hawkeye skies. Get on the point. Get on the doing defense us. Justice admitted it's not all that great. Either so i don i mean i was a did win a tournament at an A game bar at out a game bar. So like i was there with my buddy. I was supposed to go to work that day. He's like yellow. Let's go to the bar. They're having overwatch ornamental. One like this is going to be my second day. Third day out in a rose supposed that day. And i was just like bucket. Let's go just so glad. I did because i fucking out. I place my buddy. My girl was there like they gave me. Shit i gotta share from my wife. Feels like that's amazing. You call you call your boss at desperation aids. Okay i missed. I didn't even care. Like people knew i wouldn't care. I'd never pretended to be sick on the never like own. I can't come in. And i'm like i'm not coming in total defined by these days. I'm using the union. That's action it's you just gotta try but from gaming now i wanna know if you could start your own secret society over your own secret conspiracy would would it be startling. Spiracy man. I'm trying to think of all these things that are like unexplained inexplicable off. There's a word there. I'm not the best word ask migrated. When i'm slowly every day all man. I might need you guys to kinda take on this one. I have time to think a little bit Because i feel like. I can figure something but right. Now i'm just drawing blanks. Yes josh. why don't you answer your own stupid question. So i would fully like whole secret society. Goldstone like based on like the known conspiracies of aliens. At what like a real big society someone like a society powerful enough to with enough influence to actually be able to get some answers. Get some solidarity like sir take in some like some pictures or some shit on the inside because like the fact that we don't have anything on Boss now have very minimal for the pentagon. I would like to start a conspiracy by start a conspiracy. Evening started and there's actually liked things that can make it seem really benefit isn't real. I mean there's already so many things that make it seem make designers fuck it. I don't care. So i had. I had i had a. I had a dream quite a while back and we we had episode. Josh and i just talked about sleep and dreams and what we think about sleep and all that shit and i had a dream that humanity went to war with aunts because ants started killing people like they would they would target homes and they would like totally engulf people in their sleep. Eat them alive. Pretty sweet dream nice so it would be funny here by henry combated bad no okay. So long story short. The ants became sophisticated and began building ant hills the size of houses and they would they would like have thousands of colonies in one mega colony and fucked up right and the military for some reason. They combated them by sprinkling this powder on their on their nests on their massive hills and it would put all of them to sleep. Yeah they sprinkle cocaine on them and the honey. Yeah long so what it was. Yeah yeah and i mean that would make sense for a cocaine to be my dream since i do it. A lot was wondering sometimes. When you talk you randomly nosebleed but you wipe it real quick. I didn't know if you noticed. Come come back from break. like paper. Towels shoved up episode. I've ever had in my life so so then once. All the answer is sleep. There would be a dude with a drill drill like a big astro that auger drill into the hill and he find the queen and just like it just crush it and then the ants would go back to normal or i entered the dream at this point after all of this is well known i entered the dream and i looked and i saw this big talk anthill dude and i just charged at it ran ran got close to it and i dove in headfirst to an active hill besides of the house and just right inside of it and then they all started eating me and then i woke up and it was really stupid. Say i don't know if i would have done that but hey more power to you. They weren't even sleep. There is no logic behind what i did. So that's a five second dream even your like all right. Fuck wake up. Let's try this again. You fucking grand of ideas man. It's funny because like my brain crafted this like crazy scenario before i was even in it and then i came in ruined it in a dream stopped. Dude who led this guy. We getting screw it. It's yeah it's so stupid so it would be funny to like craft really believable realistic sounding conspiracy aunts. Were planning on taking over the world but it'd be total bullshit but people with chilean's both hands. Yeah yeah yeah yeah exactly. I think now that has some time to think. I'm actually gonna do a curve ball because you know i'm a piece of shit and i don't follow the rules. But this is my conspiracy. I'm not even making it up. Because i'm genuinely curious and i'm sure you guys have it where you guys are too. So i live in pennsylvania. Last time i checked pennsylvania empires eastern. You know what i mean. But like i don't understand what they do but all these houses in like central pennsylvania central pennsylvania hockey alabama. I don't understand there's philadelphia there's pittsburgh and then like kentucky. It doesn't make any sense. It's like a country like people to anyway. These houses have these stores on them. It's just decorations outside of their house. It's like a big star and it's all over the place. I heard it's a lot all of place in the south and stuff like that was just decoration. They just put a bag of texas for the big lonestar. Yeah that's what i assumed. It was but then randomly you see him in like every other stay outside texas rain in pennsylvania and so when i first got to like i grew up in philadelphia so obviously none of that is around but when i get the central pennsylvania like these stars i'm like oh is that like a tribute like what's going on in my all son in the south so i wanna make up a conspiracy theory that like people put that outside the house like a sign so everyone kind of when they see it they i. I don't like these people just for no reason. I'm just like why is the star out there. So my theory is like incest and just weird ass like oh yeah. We're just be guest up. Bonk registered offenders. Don't worry guys. We big asterix on their houses. Seamer here or their orders theory here. A secret society eighty of cannibals in those stars for each other. So they're like they know like a safe space. Be like yo you come for dinner tonight and as you know we got the dinner yet. -actly exactly searcy theories not absolute truths. I thought we were supposed to lie at some point but we were just saying. It's just the honest truth. Sorry i have a conspiracy theory. Unfortunately by star people do not. Oh they will now. I'm chubby. And i eat starburst with the rappers ons. I mean i'm high on the totem pole. That like we're starting media eat. This time they got you on that list. Nab witnesses at your door step birthday do exactly so but before before we wrap up i wanted to ask you one more just off the wall weird question which de rosas for quite a while. That's okay But it's going to be. What's your favorite zoo animal. And has anything ever happened at the zoo. That's something that's or something weird So argued by a lion chertoff rhino. Let me tell you a story that ear so so me. He was lonely. It was just out. Now's like yo. I'm really good with the mouth but like my hands. I got approved. Something i honestly. I really like marine animals. A lot more so i don't really go to a lot of zoos. But one animal sticks out to me a lot. So like i said a billion times. I'm from philadelphia. Very proud of it. They have a nice little zoo there. The philadelphia zoo. I remember I used to go when i was little because you know when parents don't really know what to do with just thinking of the zoo that'd be fun zoo dream their energy so good hope and all the time when i went when i was at the elephants are fun to see because they're big when you're literally like oh shit there's an elephant not that i have special connection. I mean it's just cool to see. Then they took the free elephants away. Oh sorry we don't do elephants here anymore. And i'm like hold up hold up. We're the philadelphia zoo. I think they're like claim to fame. Is like one of the oldest zoos in america. I was like hold on. It's not like random. I don't want to share to any city. Because i know we have millions of listeners here off but i will anyway like cleveland or something. We're we're not a cool city. It's fucking philly elephants man. What's going on so yeah. It's not really a fun. Story was pretty pissed off and ever since then. I haven't really gone back. Even though i feel like zoos. Kind of You know philosophical sense. I shouldn't support but it was pretty cool when you're little you don't know any better and i was just excited. This goddamn elephants. And then one day i went and i'm like oh yeah yeah. Komodo dragons are over there. And there's a rhino that jackdaw. And okay. wait. Where are the rental sexy ass elephants. And then they're like or we don't. We don't have them anymore. And i was like. Oh maybe they're back now. Because i just haven't been back on suppressed that memory so this nurse give i am wrong. Let me know if there are elephants at the philadelphia zoo again because i will definitely go but Yeah i know that wasn't really a fun story. I'm just kind of venting duct therapeutic. It's all good. I'll tell you one. Yeah there i- conic man so we had an episode about animals. Josh and i talked about animals for an hour. And a half. And i told the story about when i got pegged in the forehead with a rock by a monkey and that was i was like eight monkeys like our to pick out the shit out there right there. They were like they're like the little like little monkeys like really not you remember watching them in like a small cage and one of them just went and just got me right in the forehead. I didn't cry. it was like a traumatic thing. I mean i remember it pretty well but i remember my. Did you say you are. I was like eight. Okay okay says it's a rock but it was just a rock hard. I mean maybe. I don't know i didn't eat it unfortunately too big mistake but i know a man shooter. You never know what to do what. What kind of shenanigans can happen so i just wanted to bring to the table so i can do. What has before. Because you said you didn't really go to zoos like you more brenly. So what is your favorite like. I feel like this is like completely contradictory. Because i don't want them to be enclosures like aquarius. I'm a huge fan of orcas killer whales and stuff like that dude if there's any well first of all any like aquatic life docket or any you documentary really with animals and just like this is gonna be a good planet right. Oh dude amazing. But then like i don't know anytime i see killer whales or orcas or anything like that like you. Oh this is so. I don't know every time. I see anything like that. This is the coolest like usually you're like okay. There's a joke in here. Sorry no there's no joke orcas as much as i you know. I don't really care too much for animals in captivity. I love animals more than than people any but man. they're they're also been captivated for my enjoying. I'm sorry how few out of like the rest that are in the world. And honestly i look at it this way. These these animals are like the celebrities of the world like the animal kingdom instead of human like they're living in luxury got it made fucking there to work for it like maybe not like mixing owned because they're not free ranch completely but i mean i. I'm pretty sure they're not really complaining on the end here in texas. Get popsicles all day during summertime. Big give like these big ass fruit filled popsicles a these people are taking care of these angles. The people that do it the people that love animals more than people like they would much rather work with within and also to be fair. Like i said i know. It shouldn't be encouraged for animals in captivity butts in the other side of the pendulum. Like i never in my life would have ever seen a tiger or a line or an elephant ever in my life in real terms and like you're fucked obviously in that sense away. It's really cool. 'cause like it's really cool to at least see more nature. Unfortunately it's like an berry like fake setting but like you search for zoos. Unfortunately still like. I have never had that chance to see it. Kinda thing is also. it's twenty two. Yeah exactly exactly like why is it. Okay for these animals like ten boxes of popsicles today but i do it and my wife's like ibm like hold on the dress to get all the obstacles last. I checked i'm on top of the food chain. I get as many popsicles would turn it around in like you can shut them down quick. He could be like well. If you're worried about me getting diabetes. I get rid of you because you're so sweet all should i thought i thought something while we were discussing workers and stuff is a little disturbing but if i ever have a chance. I would love to do this. Have my own television show. I want to now have a segment. Where i go into a therapist's office with the little hidden camera. And i like vince. Some ridiculous shit like an film their reactions. Because i thought. I would like to go and sit down at like therapist. Couch should be like i just. I'm really concerned. Because every time i see or orca well i get really really hard and i sleep sexually frustrated jacking off my i make love with nothing. Finishes me until i the behavioral i go i have. I have a wife. I've got kids but there's posters of orca whales in our bedroom. Because i have to be looking at orca whale or i need to know why just wanted therapists be like it's gonna leave me because i keep watching free willie. I think she's catching on. I don't understand what going telling down. Oh what's for movie night. I'll have a free willy to watch. And then my wife blue ray and then slow mo. And then i'll stand. I'll lean against the television screen. And i say free willy grew like as you said all that to their this and got film dude. That big for really funny show. Excitement like i dunno. It just came to me so anyways. Okay one last thing. Bring up before. I say you said you're so proud to be a super philadelphia but you don't care for the flyers on no. I also wires so the whole funny story. The blackhawks is my dad. When he was working he always had his headquarters over in chicago. So like growing up. I we get these little knickknacks from chicago and you know the whole nostalgia thing you kinda gravitate the things that you saw on your childhood so growing up. I was more of a guess. More of a blackhawks fan. If you remember the stanley cup was the two thousand ten it was fires versus the blackhawks. I was totally guide. I was driving around my high school. Playing chelsea dagger's loud as i can. Because that's the fight song and that dick and then as i got older i was like i really do like the flyers. The broad street bullies that are the losers whatever but now i'm a big fires fan so right now at this moment. I'm actually bigger flyers fan blackhawks fan but this was when i was a big fat piece of shit so like i wear like as pajama now. Because it's like so big. So i'm just like oh it's coffee and it shows that i still like hockey but yes so i'm against so you can't you can't trap me there. Were you thinking. I'm going to the park from iraqi jersey and blood i just wanna fit in. I just my cream colored v neck. What's so seductive with a little bit of bacon. I'm just like oh shit end. Where does it start. I love hockey. I honestly have grown to love watching. Just a lot of teams play just because i love this when it comes down to it but when when anyone's going against the colorado avs like a want him to be Rush but this this season's a little wonky with the division. Yeah over it bubble and it's weird. I'm not tireless or but it's still hockey nevertheless. yeah yeah for sure like crappy hockey's better than no hockey at all. Oh yeah for sure. For sure i can agree. Naked there any last questions you have. I'm sorry i know we're keeping you away and you're slow. I'm good i'm good. I'm just going to say not me. But is there anything tommy to you. Want to say to the viewers. Any message of absolutely i. Is that really a shameless plug. But i just want to let Thank you guys first of all for having me on know. This is where we get a little bit sappy. I know we've been having you know a lot of jokes and things like that. But i really do appreciate you guys letting me on here just kind of just hang out with you guys. We feel really comfortable. Just like i said and i said it before we act like we've been friends forever. This was the first time. I've ever really gone talking after route so i think the chemistry and stuff like that while. It's good and stuff like that. I think it's because of you guys. It's you guys. Make the guests feel comfortable. And i hear that through the podcast and things like that and I think it's also been a lot of fun. Just being able to shoot the shit and whatnot and i definitely want to put a disclaimer. You know how acting right now is like when you listen to my podcast. Like if you like. Oh i wanna hear this guy talk a little bit much different. Didn't expect because what you see for me here. This is more of like nothing. I have different sides in things like that. Are comedy more of the fun kind of thing you know different sites. Yeah so. I did definitely just wanted to make that disclaimer. I don't want anyone to be like super turned off like okay. I'm gonna go. Listen to this podcast. I'll be like okay. This is shit. This is not what. I was expecting at all But once they just give it a chance. I think it's a lot of fun it's meant to be more. Like i said philosophic. It's you have to be in a different state of mind kind of thing to kind of get ready for the passwords. This you can put on any time like when you're in a bad mood you'll get for laugh. Unfortunately my flexible. But i i definitely wanna at least put that last disclaimer. Please give me a chance. And if you don't like it just leave comments and softballs. I'm cool with off the sleep. i'll fight. You're you're a comedian you've got skin so it's all can kill what's already dead. I'm dead inside. i will say. Do not go watching. You expecting what you've seen here. Today it is not much more modern full version of top. It actually i. Actually that brings up a question. So i'm obviously assuming because you guys are top. You guys are the podcast. I wanted to be. You guys are the staple so when you guys do all this research to be able to bring me in like you said not. Only my humble. That josh actually listened to my first two episodes. Sorry about that. I know it's really rough. what it meant a lot to me but sue. How did that impact how you came up with show. Because i'm sure you talked to him and you're just like okay. We're getting tommy on the show tonight. I listen to podcasts. I feel like this is the type of personality he has obviously. So how did that go. And how is it different. After honestly our show notes our show. No if you look at it and this is my grocery list. Yes we literally have like your name and your podcast and then like the little bit that that little bit of disclaimer. You gave discord. How you you did. Stand up and you apart Couple improv troupes in. That's when i was like. Oh she somebody interesting that come on and then we kind of like did questions about that and then are stupid random shit so we actually literally as our name would suggest mindlessly prepare. We just tried to nick. Nick himself is really good at keeping a conversational I do. I you just sit here you know and i got to interject because i have massive anxiety about having dead air because we don't ya not edited. These are essentially there live. Yeah edited so. I don't want dead air so like no matter. I tried to stop the show nuts. And he's like no my anxiety. I won't be able to buy you know. I will sit there if they're going so So what colored carpet you have in your in your work and is there a stain that you cannot get out because i mean i. Would you like to talk about flooding plummer yet. I will say though in all seriousness. I am a plumber and it is a very important job from anonymous. So yeah i actually talked about my dead air anxiety on air before. This is the first time. So people think. I'm just like yeah. Just go through that out there. That's fine in my in my head. I can tell. A conversation is starting to slow down. And i'm like okay. I need something. I need something i need something like and i just try to segue into his best i can because we don't edit these so well one thing. I definitely went to add and this is i guess the more philosophical part of me finally a little bit of you die deep is about to come in. I think that's going to be really urging. Because when i hear you and they see these youtube videos they'll see you make jokes at your own expense. You don't make fun of other. Oh yeah on the blah blah blah like. I had this injury but like when they see how going you are how well you're able to flow and things i feel like no one would be able to guess you have this zaidi and i feel like that's a really cool thing to at least bring up because some people might be struggling with it but you could never really identify where it's coming from so i feel like it's really. It's really cool that you're able to share that. Because i know there's going to be a lot of listeners. That are definitely gonna be surprised. I'm like wait. Why no away. But hopefully will give him a little bit of comfort because it comes in all the different kinds of ways and able to come like able to kind of concrete and things like that. So that's restrict show for the discount from like mindless too late. We don substance got something there well then like whenever we're having conversations certain times were all talking and i can tell. The conversation is slowly starting to die out. I start getting really digitally but nobody can see my okay. Yeah yeah alright alright. I constantly playing with crap at my desk now that you can't see like what my answer doing anymore because the before like i figured out my camera settings and stuff like that. I used to be able to see me. I'll play up late with like. I've been playing with these throughout just like playing around depending like folding this order like that's what i do. Yeah i've been. I've been i'm weird. I've been picking off nail. No i just imagined. I've show it and it was like blood all over my finger problem. I didn't take my skin. One thing i don't want to do. I don't want to take too much more time. 'cause i know we keep saying. Oh we're going to. We're going to end it but we not get off this podcast without asking is it doesn't have to be in depth but y'all as rooms are so cool. You have a bunch of movie posters. You look like gist productions to make things better. You've got like a leather chair back. Hell man what's going on there. Can you guys explain. Like what are your rooms are so cool so good so it's funny because so like my wife is at home i met my mistresses house and i got pretty good there that though of course not so i i'm staying. We're we're looking for a house my my wife and three and and so we were right. Now we're staying at my dad's house. My dad has a pretty big house. We stay upstairs when i use the. He's got like a small theater room. It's like a room that he turned into like a hitter. Hints movie posters. Imagine being much. Yeah well i. He owns the plumbing company. That i worked for So i would. I'm not going to say he's rich but he's doing well enough well enough to have a couple of extra bedrooms upstairs. So you know we've got we've got we've got room upstairs so we're still. Yeah so we're staying here while we for our first of all. Congratulations that's awesome. I know like you haven't found the house yet but just kind of looking at. It was pretty exciting. Being able to really look is. I've never. I've never owned a house before i've only rented we moved in here a few months ago and before that we were renting a duplex which was really really cool because it was like having a house because it was it was duplex so it was. It was cool but yeah judge So i am renting. This is exit. Us house partic- house than i have been almost as long as i can remember really And she lives with my parents are so it's just me and my wife and my so. We decided we wanted to do a movie room. And i that's literally just paint like trimmed that i Tack to the to the wall. Wow projectors are cheap. They're lot cheaper than Tv's and for amazing price and these like dirt cheap to staple on the wall about crazy. The ten dollar monkey masks. So yeah. I mean it's really nothing fancy. It looks fancy honestly like if anything's really fancy that i take pride in this room it. It's the case that money got me when he worked at a billabong and in the air is my entire collection. Like my overwatch pops. The only pops up went out on my way to buy a and my other statues figures and bars that my wife is zero. Fought me idea. Why bother with them because nothing you move the dildo get rid of that. Because you're you're messing with way too much i it. It's in the dishwasher right now. Being cleaned special cycle for it no big the sanitation clean. That thing enough brought told you like you need to clean that thing. Every time he likes the extra cross for the extra friction. I it makes sense. Signed rookie over here. I did it. Well shipman textured for my pleasure talking to you guys. I was just looking at your guys rooms. And i was like. Oh my gosh. I see the waterboy. Obviously it looks like spider man over there. That's still. I looked up at yours. And i was like well. Hold up a sec. There's like a theater with acoustic thing with a nice ass leather chair. That costs more than pretty much. Everything in this. It looks awesome. I was like i was talking to you. Get like that was the first impression i got when i first came into the zoom. I was just like what's going on this marine life seeing those things before i like the boardwalk. It's like a shark right. He'll this is my pet. Sir jimmy is just a sugar. But i jimmy right. He's connor. you're gonna lose your spot. He's asleep. this is bullshit. Sorry jimmy jimmy. Just rose up the ranks. Jimmy will actually get the job done. Those juki might be dead though but honestly a dead shark has just connor. Dude asked him to make me a hot pocket like ten minutes ago. Yeah all the shit but guys. We're going to wrap up for tonight. We are going to have tommy back though. Because there's i mean we didn't get into we didn't get into the nerds shit. We didn't get into gaming. We didn't get into a lot of shit that we the next time you see. See tommy with were all going to be the same brand. That would be amazing. That'd be awesome. That'd be that'd be dope. That'd be bad once we get paid. We're gonna fly here and with all the patriotic money that you guys are getting all the sponsorships. I mean as fly me right for sure. To limit was with a limo comes in. He's probably going to be cheaper to feed you so you're on your with. All i need is just starbursts. And i'm good to go. I gotta get my diamond grill. I like i got to get that grill so are waiting on that. That's the first. It's your guys. Sure you guys definitely check out his podcast. It's an extremely interesting idea. I haven't heard anything like it. Like being delving into philosophical topics that are custom tailored to you which is really cool. So it's essentially a podcast where you can. You can really get into some shit that that might be helpful to you. You know it says the says you die if you and if you're typing enough to find it it's you y you just his last name which is pretty damn clever so you dive deep podcast and hopefully you check them out me and josh both going to be on there as well so we will fire links like links are gonna go. We're going to have links for everything that he does that he wants to share with you. We will have in all of our descriptions so out and we're going to have him back. And i hope you guys had a good laugh and have a good rest of your day. I everyone you think i'm sick. Well the only disease. I've got us. Modern life schmidt busting gauntlet of inefficiency and misery. That's one long parade of letdowns. Put-downs trickle down shutouts freeze out. Sellouts numb nuts. Nick and puts a nimrods making every day as much fun as waxing a flaming pontiac with tongue. We're even if you do look into the possibility of some leading pleasure like say if some nymphomaniac telephone operators with the muscle control of romanian matt. Slappers agree to a little strip air hockey. It'll be over before it starts. Because some foul lacking federica cab jackie slams his up your hatchback than a cab is owned by some spanker from a center ria colton wok cowpox who starts chicken chicken bones. John gives you boil on your next. So big polonaises. Michael jordan's autograph that make a complete and even with all this when all this down drag my sorry every morning. Stick my face and the reaping machine for one more day knowing when it's time to flesh the cosmic does pearly gates. I won't be in a coffin anyway. 'cause i'm underhanded. Undertaking showed my heart pancreas and other assorted good and plenty. Same santamaria count. So does anybody really wonder why anybody is hanging onto saturday by the atoms on the tip of their fingernails. Wildlife thirty digits it. Is it really any wonder that i say that right.

And i have the best to co host and podcast has to me right now. I i'm gonna bring in a brother from another mother met i've known for years later. Gentlemen my good friend. Mr tony see was going will which go with may hide umbro or hanging in mac. Thank complain can compliant all right now. It is my pleasure to welcome back. Overturning moose in heavyweight champion So give it up for my man. Me g g one his up. What is what i can. I can honestly say this feels good to be back can play a little bit thank. I can't you're good to have you back. Thank you for checking us out on social media tonight. youtube also wants the kwh atlas up bro All right let's go. waiting either. Started the first thing i want to do is hit you guys up with some hockey. You caught up on some hockey so gene hit us which are in nhl report. That people know what's going down. Well well. I know it's been some time. It's been some time things have happened. Fans are come to some ranks. If you haven't already seen if you've been checking any of the highlights or whatnot certain arenas or allowing capacity or not full capacity but part partial- capacities of coming back to that straight. So we're gonna start this all off with the top sixteen which means of anybody's in hockey they know top. Sixteen teams though. Are the ones going to the playoffs. They're the ones that you want to get their chance at the stanley cup. So as of right now standing off we have colorado in i with a win loss. Record their windsor twenty. Eight loss nine They've won four in overtime points. Sixty points have toronto coming in just recently. Come off laws against montreal. Canadian's tonight For to actually for montreal wins. Twenty eight losses. Eleven three wins over time with fifty. Nine points Colorado or cow yet. Colorado not all around carolina hurricanes coming in third with twenty seven nine four with fifty eight points on tampa bay. Lightning twenty eight wins. Eleven losses to wins in overtime. Fifty eight points washington Twenty seven eleven for with fifty eight points in new york islanders. Twenty seven eleven four wins in overtime with fifty eight points. We have the vegas nights coming in at seven Pittsburgh at in eighth florida. Panthers in nine winnipeg is coming in tenth impotent and eleven. Minnesota's twelve sten is in thirteenth nashville predators. Coming in on fourteenth fifteenth place is new york rangers in in sixteenth place. Pittsburgh are philadelphia. Sorry philadelphia now by did put down the nets. seventeen eighteen and nineteen and twenty teams In seventh right now in seventeenth place would be Saint louis an eighteenth montreal village that will switch hereafter the win loss. That has happened earlier. But What i'm saying is those below or teams. Don't count them out same with blues soup tommy. I want you to listen up your blues. Make the playoffs. There's fifteen games apart for most of these teams left in the season because it's only a fifty six game season so those teams at the bottom end that are very close in point range very well must put the fire on. This is the fire. Time is brunell finished the trade deadline. Everything's done trade wise so Definitely got to put the fire on blues starting to look like they're coming out with some fire i say if they can keep up with a majority portion of their these next fifteen games fifteen fourteen maybe sixteen games that they have left lose could make the playoffs Same going with like toronto. Geyser sitting up at the top six. I was just telling we'll before we got in those top six teams. They might switch a little bit here and there but those are going to be your solid tops. Those guys are locked in the play offs ninety percent of time for your eight. Sita teams like teams. That are sitting in eight seed or botmc tend to fall out sometime so this could be out of the sixteen teams we did going into the stanley cup Who has a shot. It could be anybody and you realize these. These american teams have yet to play any canadian teams in any canadian. Teams have yet to play american teams. So this is what you're ending up when you get to your final four teams really are going to be Sort of an unknown so that set like the because they play seventeen street Seventeen or seven game sets in the playoffs. It could be anything that could happen from there. It's like anybody's so until we reach playoff time. Canada doesn't know how well their teams are gonna fair to the american teams in the same vice versa so versa and nobody really has yet built a playlist for those teams. You have played them. Rate might so hopefully. Hopefully what brought you to. The dance is going to carry all the way to the stanley cup as right now. So just getting into the divisions just making a divisional the west division is the best division right now Colorado sitting with twenty eight wins nine losses. Four wins in overtime. Sixty points in second in that division would be the vadis nights with twenty seven. Wins eleven losses to wins in overtime. Fifty six points. Minnesota comes in third with twenty four thirteen and three with fifty one points in sitting in fourth is still saint louis. Blues with nineteen sixteen six and forty four points behind that division in second place in divisional breaking in vision would be northern north division. All canadian teams toronto leading division. With twenty eight wins eleven losses. Three wins in overtime. Fifty nine points. We have winnipeg jets twenty five thirteen three fifty three points edmonton oilers twenty five fifteen two with fifty two points in montreal with eighteen twelve nine and forty five points so at this point at this point i would say saint louis blues. If you're you still have a chance. shot you have fifteen games to really put to the test. So if you're wearing head now yeah yeah. It's right now at this point it because we finish the trade deadline where it is i know. Lightning is still up there for their sitting Just wanted to let you know there yet. Iranian in fourth overall. So the tampa bay. Lightning is definitely for sure to see as long as they play. Good not saying that. Anything could happen as long as they played. Good definitely gonna didn't play offs so yeah let's see how it goes. Let's see how it goes. There is your nhl recap. Thank you sir appreciate you. Doing enough foreskin nearby caught up on the h. l. Man we gotta let a big going down today on. Wanna go ahead and get started. I want to do in a somewhat breaking a have an earlier this afternoon. We'll jump into it. Julian ed mcguinness cut by the patriots. Tony see does he retire in how good you think. His career was wallace said. I saw a report that he retired. So was it a retired. Oh they cut him. I thought he got because he didn't make his physical year. The impasse physical right past fiscal Right now but you know. He's problem really in one day to the hall of fame. 'cause know what three time champion right three times as and he had some impressive catches and key moments especially in that super bowl against the falcons nam saying but the speculation is going to end up in jail. That to. that's it. I'm trying to figure out. How does that happen. Because scotty miller him. They young a younger younger version of him. Yeah and being. They're trying to bring a be bag. So how are you how they're gonna work. Is it gonna work. you might be. You might be odd man out. And i saw today decide. Giovanni benard from the bengals The bengals cut him. They picked him up. So i guess he's to take the lesean mccoy arrow tableau right going to the shawn mccoy roles so we'll see how that works out wome working for them out to lou. Heck yeah man. Hey man rich get rich. Get richer man. I lombardi trophy you. What will happen when your quarterback making twenty five million. Yeah you can do stuff like that. Absolutely let me go off to the aba rook. Wicked would take a commercial break. We had an upset a big upset over the weekend. The lakers get a get a big win. Nola brian no. Ad over the nets won't twenty six to one. Zero one drum made a very impressive semi debut a lot better than his original debut had twenty points eleven rebounds and of course kevin durant this thing for the nets. Twenty point seven rebounds five steals. Does this go to me. This tells me no matter what roster you have you have to come ready to play right absolutely because without but i'm thinking james harden is the stratus stirs that drink with those two guys kyri in katie. They really need him to get them in positions he know saying. Hey he's a threat on offense. So i don't look too much into that. You know what i'm saying like you say they didn't come to play in the didn't have that third nine rising so let's not forget to career got checked it so s and also be you look at it like the nets. Were coming in hearing. Oh lebron and some of their key players already out so there weren't coming at full force. They weren't expecting a heart team. So you know what i mean. This was just underestimating. Your opponent We see a lot of time in the in the nba. But don't read too much into us if this was now in the play offs and as gained three of the playoffs. Then i'm going to say the yet now you you gotta realize what the team can bring right your adjustments. You better do it now. Because if not they're gonna jump all over yet but we're this is still not. I'm not saying early in the season but still going on As long as other teams. Look at this and go. Hey as long as we bring heart to lakers right now and try to keep them down while they're down that's where they're going to be Rah our right. Let's go ahead and take a quick commercial break when we come back guys. We don't get into kids devait vr. Clowney get the browse over the hulk. The super bowl kay. He helped dan do it. And we got about little bit. Lebron james Are you guys shot by. His injury lasted the full term. So hang out with us guys. We'll be right back. and as w. p. Podcast right here on. Pinfall shines every wednesday at eight pm eastern right before flashier so the paradigm shift Check out k and punisher they bring you up to date on the latest video game new. So that's the double xp podcast right here on wall street all right. Let's ask the kids it javale vr. Cloudy get off over the hump for book. I mean if if he's ninety ninety five percent woody could be then he can help you know what i'm saying myles garrett on the other side but just going see what qatar production. You know. what. I'm saying. You're going to get from him. You know being he's al- he's always kinda nicked up you know. So we'll see if he's able to stay healthy and beat at opposite booking for them and then you got all dale's gonna do. Oh yeah oh yeah. I think this is more of those one of those prosper. One of those guys that look good on paper but we we know throughout the season. He has injuries as issues but on paper the stats state. You know he could really help this team as long like tony. He said as long as he can stay healthy. This possibly prospect or this could probably be a key to help. The browns make the super bowl. I think he overvalued himself so to speak because if you look at his sack. Total is not to doesn't equate to the type of money he wants. He's more of a disruptor than anything else and that's why like about him because he may not get the sack. but he's gonna disrupting store off. Quarterbacks timing and things of that nature and dass while still to come the like it because we're him and myles garrett together man that's narrow that that is very rob lowe problem as long as long as clowning can stay healthy. There's problems and this will help yet and this will definitely further on help. The browns get into the super bowl. You know they they were really good. This year You know so. This is going to be something at this point when you're getting that close to making super bowl. That's where you're strong. Start telling yourself okay. Now now we gotta look at key positions. We got key components into them. This was like maybe a thing that they don't have stats not the greatest overall. But hey he's a guy that disrupts things and that's what we need and the thing that subtle. Kinda back statistics. Little bit that divisiness Account a week pittsburgh. You can't trust pittsburgh past week. eleven. I don't care what type of through you can't i. Don't i don't care what streak they start on if a finnish cincinnati's retooling Ratings they gotta get a pass and passing game. Yeah well. I think a lot of teams i think. A lot of teams wrote throughout the leader's retooling after seeing the buccaneers. Defeat the chiefs and earl. Everybody's wall okay. The chiefs doe have chink in their armor. Can we retool in repackage ourselves. Maybe make the playoffs. So that's what everybody's looking at this point so Initially what i'd be saying here is yeah. This is just a retooling. And if if i'm a smart coach is slash gm. Find those pieces. Where i'm week to retool my team flu. I just think that the rain has mad. It's kinda funny. None of the free agent receivers with. They're just think it's kinda funny that it. They didn't lipid that running game. Now we come in your. I'll i think they're hoping to land a beat us. Why you working now with hollywood him a hollywood brown cousins. But they're working out near miami with the mar- jackson so they're hoping that turns into something that naked land now you notice kind of you know is kind of funny when dez bryant has just released the plan to lead leave you know something about you know something. They're passing game isn't as as advance. Has you wanted to be four quote unquote contender you. What i'm saying they gotta get better on in that aspect. Getting better our guys this. Let's head on over to back to the for second is pick a firm firmed. Lebron james is going to miss some more time Are this like he's gonna be out the full six weeks till may do you g- after you think the latest can hold onto men and you saw that of surprised the bronze not back earlier. Well the thing about it is william. They're gonna de the teams that are behind him are losing wail so that allows key that standing. You know biff six range right. You know. Now they have like. I don't know what they're doing tonight. They're planning knicks. It was early. When i took a look at it but you know they need a game like the other night. That is supposed to lose but win. You know what. I'm saying to help them. Stay afloat making the playoffs because when it comes a game where they're not on equal footing you know. They're most likely going to lose. So if that other team comes to play this point. Here's the thing at this point. The lakers got lebron because they want to go to the playoffs. They did that one already but they want liberal. They want lebron to stay healthy and keep giving them you know creighton dynasty bigger at the end of the day. This does hurt. Because i think lebron looked at it and said okay maybe come back a little earlier but he chose not to because he wanted to come back healthy kudos to him but he also looked at is like my team suffering anyways so if i come back and try to pull them out and then i get injured halfway through the play offs. Any doesn't do me any benefits. So that's where i think. That's where a team from is more of love. He's trying to keep themselves healthy from that season. At least that way he can be more productive than being almost like everything's going to be put on his shoulders now and he doesn't want to be at that position right. Now right. i got your net and it makes sense that makes sense hopefully can hold on because they'd be a damn shame mr playoffs last litter this year. Would i would agree. I don't know. Hey one hundred Out without lebron. I don't see the lakers. Really make they make it. It's like they're creeped into the playoffs and they're probably going to be out first round. That's that's why. I see that if they do make that was a fluke and you can tell because the way casey p is playing. He's not they got that money that money and yeah he. He's going to be a therapist. The third option. We roll up against like broke. Lou got katie kyri. James harden a career that third option. Love their yeah. Yeah yeah and theories assume they a when they may got to win. Yeah man really got to west utah and phoenix. I'm what i want to show you. I want to show you the the so-called moat one of the most amazing ducks we had the other day. share you guys want because i have year. Now we'll get european on it. Give me one second. The second half mcdaniels one on one mode as a smaller man autumn. Rosiere cody zeller all pets. Have rebound fractious word. The filthy us up filthy okay. First of all the on the announcer sound like you have any reason skill to win a ten. What you guys. That don't seven eight tops. Yeah i i was gonna say i'd give it a i give it a strong eight. He had that he had that form coming in. And it was a nasty looking like you know opposed to rise type idea. I wouldn't give it a ten at ten but it was. It was still nasty a gave me that you know ms typeface like it wasn't it was. It was asked but stuff like that. We need to see more of that in the sleet now because it does fire up eighteen years behind a little bit or even. If you're ahead just a bit if you can keep put that dominant in their showcasing. The you know. Hey were coming back or hey you know we're we're the ones put the foot on your wrote keep going you know what i mean. That's that's what the nba. That's what so good about. It is stuff like that. That was mouse. Bridges over clint Cappella could furlough. And and i'll know cappella thinking britain's catch up after jill. Right of the what. He was thinking. I mean i. I mean i mean if this is a playoff game okay of the net bra. You ain't post razzing me anyway the hail you put me here. I mean there's no kobe dunkin. Oh steve nash. Late guided pivot doing. Yeah yeah but i loved dump took the did on you and i loved that i still remember the The the best one. I've ever seen and the state this vince carter in the olympics gal made post rising. The atl main that that's a feat allen itself but doing it in the olympics. Oh yeah this. Vince were mode from no joke. No joan. we're not and he gets a lot of respect because he didn't ring chase nope he did. Not ring chase all so oh man what the so. Let's go ahead and let me get into one more will take another break. I'm a goal to one. That's near and dear to your heart. Tony see we saw that prescott comeback. Throw them in the football i you think. How do you think he looked in an short clip on sort of football. And let me tell you something. Resume making get in this fordism next year. Man man. I just hope it was worth a man. He wanna be. Yeah yeah i mean. I'm not one blind witness cowboy fans was bad deal. No one can tell me when the last sign of quarterback who made the most money in the lee has won the super bowl has been longtime yep and the league is not set up for that. So if you're not thinking of team friendly deals like a pet mahomes and they could restructure it on the backing going. Tough guy happy. I'm not. I have in dallas cowboys. Dallas put themselves into this position backed themselves into it I think they're to have to be the ones living with it and win their fans their die hard fans say. Why didn't we make the playoffs. Widened we reach the super bowl. You can look back to this right here. I mean i mean basically you have shown yourself not only free agent but you may also hand yourself in terms of draft picks to be able to have enough capital to sign all your draft picks to make any other moves on that roster. So or we're already pansy. We all repented mugs laura's while now mandak full bag of tricks yup oh my goodness are gaza. Take another commercial break when we come back. Go talk by bid being would still be happy to keep in past the season. Roskam ask a question who was the better. La acquisition drumming or rondo. So we'll get to all that and more on the sports report give us one moment. We'll be right back worded. Am owner roll. Hello chess now so sued the kosovar says in institute. He two mass all right guys. We are back. We are back. I i break you. Saw was the paradigm shift wrestling. Podcast was our flagship. Show right here on. Streams gets us every wednesday at ten pm eastern time as you break down the bisa professional wrestling. Second was dishonest. Archies podcast kitsch screams on sundays. What time is that. Sunday is I do believe like eight. Nine o'clock central. I think central. I usually were on episode nine of mistaken. Iowa have missed a week or so so but yeah we're going to be catching up on the remember. We do episode and season almost coming to a close. There's only thirteen episodes so stick with us and we might blow special stop at the end and we'll get right in that season to all right so definitely check those shows out right here on pinfall streams all right guys go to the pittsburgh steelers real quick I want to ask you guys. If everything has gone down with steelers earth. Gone now big being. Who's got injuries. He's an older dude Do you think these be damn past season. do all they. They know what they're gonna do after him. So you know what i'm saying. I think they're going to kind of remove play a year to year and water during the year. they're gonna try to hopefully land draft picks off right try to get his replacement in like that. But i think he's on a year to year thing going to keep. I would have to out have to agree on that. I think they're gonna play him. This this season much can get out of them and then try to move made move so that net season if need be they. Can you know make that predict plus mason. Rudolph's this isn't that good right accurate in ready now. He's just not that good. Oh my man who could do. They could do a lot better than that. Maybe if it's money maybe they pick somebody up in the draft right and maybe they took a chance on somebody. I any george. Now has a coaching job at h hugh just like dion. He is coaching over at tennessee. Katie via good coach kind of rebels and kind of replicate some success world. I think the route is going to be the route from now for those guys tried to feed quit. You know as coaches. But i think he's eaten. You'll be able you know more get the best recruits in tennessee they'll probably going to ut. They'll probably give this second or third because you know van. Bill's pretty tough to yeah academia academically. Oh no you got chattanooga new. They're put the producers school so but i think you know you're right behind the bill as recruiting waas absolutely. We tend to see. Were picking something that they want for him as as their coach and they're hoping he's gonna bring something to their into their system so we'll see how the season goes. I guess it's one of those things. Where if i was somebody taking a chance on somebody new coming coach you know you sort of. Let's have the season plays i. You know i mean if you do well or at least semi okay. okay with. this is what you've done. Well what can you bring Net season just see how it goes. I think it's if i was tennessee. I'd be looking at a season per season at this point plus edge. Editor's note the game and he played it at the highest level and as in running back grow. Oh man mel hall of famer all right last question of the night before we roll on a year. who has the better acquisition in la. Andre drummond rundle rondo for me. He's a proven winner. You know what i'm saying. The lakers are going to count. i think they're going to miss him. Especially in the play offs in certain situations. I'm thanking gonna Make a difference for the clippers in the west. Definitely in my opinion. Rondo and i would. I would have jumped on agree with that the clippers. I think the seen somethin' because what they light what he brought to the laker. So you mean the clippers of always tried to grab acquisitions or guys. Who are leaving the lakers because the system is usually similar. So yeah i'd say out agree with that. Rondo was probably the acquisition. I've been drummond detroit to get that lineup with play bully ball to me Become trying to bring back with the hat last year with The white male trying to play bully ball up front. I don't know if that's gonna work particularly with teams that has just as much sizes they do So i gotta go her rondo to he'll get boys in the right positions where they need to be I think the only thing that stops the clippers is the the play of paul. George the playoff will lay of paul george. My regular season paula. Not playoff playoff. Okay right now right now in the playoffs even playing like p. e. so we got to see if he can get it on in the playoffs and keep us sustained so the clippers can get out of there and move on into the aba finals for the first shoot it. Yeah very first time very first time boston after a golden state for some reason but very first off all right all right. Let's go ahead and kill not here for tonight.

Best & Most Memorable Bruins Moments of 2020 | Poke the Bear w/ Conor Ryan

"And welcome in to poke the bear episode twenty four. I'm marinov ski. That is connor ryan connor. What is evan. I'm a film pretty happy. where leaving. twenty twenty and the review thankfully so looking forward to what is ahead in two twenty twenty one because only shed disease is the worst. Isn't it so fund that it's to be a new year and it feels like typically. I mean a new year the same days and whatever but you this year it feels so much different this year. it is just like thank god. This horrendous horrendous year is coming to a close it's funny. It sucks because twenty twenty. I such high expectations for twenty twenty. It's aesthetically pleasing. The the year makes sense. Twenty twenty you know like we've been looking forward to it. Everyone always like twenty years ago and before people always put out plans and then for the year they would always have twenty twenty like you know project name. Twenty six would be done in the future of twenty twenty and the year sucked year. Just absolutely was atrociously. Awful terrible grateful. No good horrible very bad year and it's over or it's going to be over by the time you may be listening to this. It is over and it'll be twenty twenty one Ten years by the way says the won the cup so the ten year anniversary. It's funny because typically in the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season there would be like ten year anniversary stuff probably all throughout the year this year. They don't get to have that because they're no fans So unless they have more zooms lined which thank. i assume. we're probably both going to get into a little bit later. What we're talking about today. S yes so today. We're going to look back on year. There will be some best moments where we'll just sit and stare at each other for ten minutes There were some good moments. There was some fun moments. The bruins had And then we'll look at the most notable most important moments and in that i don't know if are best moments and we will start with that we will start with the most memorable moments most important moments because i don't think any of them were the best moments the biggest. That's the case for most teams right in that. Like the best moments really. I just you know. I was on if you don't win the cup. It's really tough to find like the actual apex of trying to size of the year but unfortunately ruin telstra has really shooting moments. Yes we. I think. We have to address for the bad vote. We get to the good. Yes those are the bad. I'll just go first when you. I texted me saying you want to do this The first memorable moment to me that sticks out in my head as rask leaving the bubble that to me is the biggest one that was the biggest story of the year. It felt like that was the one that generated the most reaction it was. You know i think affected the bruins the most in the bubble short-term they beat the hurricanes long-term they really never stood a chance against the lightning To me you're starting goalie. Leaving the bubble one hundred percent is the story of the year. I think we both got that that notification that the bruins announced his statement about it over just staring. It's like that it's like that matthew mcconaughey post way too much. It's him from true. Detective reese taken the huge drag a. Yeah that's a. that's pretty much. What what my reaction was to that. And i think what a lot of google reaction were to it and I i think just you know you ask the circumstances of the way that season ended The expectations threat team the settings. They were enemy. No one expected at the start of the of the bruins head to go through the playoffs in a toronto bubble hanging up over a a hotel which twenty four seven. let's say had gained so I think that's definitely probably the most shocking moment. I mean that literally showed know. They announced that three hours. I think ahead of game three against carolina might have been. You was because i you know we got the notification. I wrote like a quick story and then being you talked on it about it on for for you to allies as soon as you post it was like five minutes into the game. So i think i think when they were leaving the hotel is when they found out so it was. It was and it's funny. You think back. i mean. I'm surprised in a sense. They didn't say it after the game because we think about it like rask critters not but on the bench because he had an injury or they could made something up. Yeah they didn't they just put it out and like that must have been crazy for the pr team as well. And for the for the bruins general having to figure out how to handle this. And i remember john sweeney was available right before the game I mean it was a huge thing. It's funny i was sitting in bed is the game i think it was at twelve and so i you know i was just coming off. Irvy's middle of summer. I got up at like ten. Not expecting anything you know just kind of slowly out of bed and i texted sierra sierra goodwill texted me and said oh my god did you see red. Omg rask as what like what you're talking about. Omg rask and i went to twitter. And i was like. Oh and i just who out of bed like flew to me. That's the most memorable woman. What other memorable moments did you have the year. I mean other than that which. I think that one's going to have long term ramifications. Because i think we've talked to nauseam on on this part about brass reason for doing it and why i think there's gonna be some bruins fans that are still going to be stuck in their ways. You already put all their stock into you. Know not viewing rats cinnabon goalie. So this isn't going to help. Set is gonna last forever. But i think maybe other big story has to be the one that i i imagine. Every team in any professional sport every person has for twenty twenty and the fact that you know we had an unprecedented shutdown of the season The fact that the bruins who swallows one of those you know it sucks going to what if scenarios because usually those things encountering hollow but you look at that bruins team that you know the start of march was on this crazy ron singletary clucking points. Finish every single game You know had that memorable a back and forth against tampa here. That felt like a playoff game. Be tampa down in tampa a as before. That just seemed like everything was kinda clicking. You still had a few weeks of the regular season to see where a guy like. Andrei cautious fit ritchie. Everything's just kind of going that way and again to the playoffs. Nothing's can take for granted but You look at the way that that bruins team seemed like they were clicking. You you You size up that team in how they were from pretty much training camp words. I mean that team was blocked in from the start after considering how the previous year ended in stanley cup final It seemed that whole team which pretty much the same bras to more or less the fact that they all kind of thing collectively bought in. They're all kind of brought back for another year motivated to kind of rewrite that narrative. I think you saw that on the ice again. You could make the argument that we get to. The playoffs in tampa still smokes. Pretty much every other team. But you also remember that time that I think even victor hedman was hurt. They'd a few other guys or really banged up for tampa during that time so You have a lot. I mean it's tough to do that kind of you. Know whatever will make excuses and making excuses for what what how ended. 'cause you still got you know you still gotta get through that slate but It's only natural to wonder what could have been one. You've had this senate break you. Had a lot of injured players get healthy over the span of the months that they were off So i think that has to far away be one where again. I don't know how much that's going to be bruins fans five years from now. Who are gonna be. You know. Thrown back beers at like sullivan. Tabula members are twenty. Nine hundred twenty bruins. They have want at all. Like i feel like regardless of the sport. Everyone's gonna has put all that on the back burner this year just in terms of just how batch years van but i think when you kind of look at this Bruins team in how. This is impacting. Them i mean. I i think you have a case to be made that This team could have done a whole lot more had not all these shitty events actually transpired. This year i agree. I also think if people would talk about that at sully's tavern If there was no playoffs like if there was no return the season just ended in. That was that and they called it like then. Then that is devastating. Then you can one percent and by the way we can as you said we can still ask the question you know. Would they have made a better run. They were a wagon back in march. You know it's it's likely to think they probably would not a little bit better but again they had the they had the chance later. So it's like you know you have that it's valid. Asked the question and a good chance that they probably would have done a lot better considering that a lot of teams had injuries in the bruins at the time didn't really a so one of those things where i think people maybe the moore's kinda like just those loaded team that should have gone a lot farther. You can kind of view them. And maybe the same. Not the same circumstances but in terms of the results Kinda like that. Oh eight oh nine team. The team that seemed destined to go far with it that way. That season went on and at the end like sat on the kind of blends i view this team through. That team should have gone a lot father and whether it be circumstances within their control out of their control obviously didn't adding ended up happening for them thirteen fourteen as well those teams. I think because you can kind of group in the same category. I'm trying to remember like most important moments in krueg. Leaving was big krueg leaving but again that was kind of expected wasn't expected to go to the saint louis blues. Not that was not the team at anyone predicted for him to go to. But that was obviously big. Where whatever happens with chara if it happens. Twenty twenty or twenty twenty one. Maybe we'll open twenty twenty one with char retiring or returning or waiting for the maple leafs who knows posit impossible in rocket reshad. Yup that was definitely gets Gets jack adams but the the the cruel thing about the positive is that not cruel. It's pretty cool for him. I bet that he's sharing with ovechkin but the fact that he easily could have won. The rocket restart outright heading. Not have said that goal to ma shannon that game against the penguins. The remember that yes. I do i love that. He just got the assistant stead. It's kind of funny to think back. You look back at those easy empty netters they could have gotten and you think we'll jesus christ shoot it. Think i think that porter asked mash end. The next day a practice about it and he was like apostles. we find. He'll get his goals. Don't worry about it. And then you know the pandemic happened and it kinda shit went sideways. But that is one that In terms of individuals stats the fact that positive fifty goals. And we'll it this game. I want something crazy happens. Because he's also not gonna be back until february if it's fifty goals in thirty seven games or something like that. That'd be remarkable. But i think we unfortunately have to wait another year before pasta kind of challenges that stat line. Maybe there's a curse on him. You think back a few years ago. He hurt his thumb. Was out for some time. You know this year gets for covid. This upcoming year gets shorten because he's injured and it's shortened general because he cursed. I don't think a perpetual forty goal score which is not a bad thing to have but fifty goals drinks different wright fifty goals different vibes two different. It's fifty instead of forty. I dunno it is i know. Isn't that crazy. We don't usually do math. And after all that bad stuff. There's no better way to intro. The good stuff then with the best of the best that's bet online dot.

So let's get in to the best moments of twenty twenty is surprisingly when you best moments i was like. What are we going to talk about. And then start said if you think about it there. Were actually some really cool fun. Bruins moments at twenty twenty. Now i say we just go back and forth and will each give ours. I'll let you go first. What is what was your favorite best most interesting kind of moment of the yeah. I guess it's an indictment on the the twenty nineteen twenty season that has nothing to do with the twenty nineteen twenty bruins. But i'm gonna go with zoom reunion for the twenty seven bruins game seven vancouver at the time. In april everything was miserable right on the walking seen. The light of day The numbers in massachusetts across the country for covid where getting think everyone was just looking for some sort of relief or at least some kind of departure from what is going on the last six months at that time and the bruins i mean shadow to them for organizing something like that and that whole lead up to. I think they played every game. That twenty eleven playoff on nessin so like they had You know the game. Seven against entree all they had the the game. Seven tampa bay lead up to that game. Seven against Vancouver and to have pretty much most of the team they are all zoom unedited Just rolling through it It was i think for bruins fans cathodic. I think it was hilarious. Because again you put a bunch of hockey players in in one. Zoom call for Two and a half hours with just no no restrictions on it You're in bad shape when they like cracking open like the drinks and unlike machi brings out vodka and orange. The end of the first payers are shit like this. This is going to go off the rails through a few bottles of wine bottles of wine. you know greg. Campbell comes in hot and just sets immediately at one point. He literally just fighting but just going back and forth everyone else on the zoom call. It's like it's like when you're in one that's going way too long in someone. Just you forgot to mute. It's like shouting at something yelling at the dog. And you just in the zoom call like looking down looking. You can't leave yesterday. I just kind of got got your way through it I think that that has my favorite moment. I think for a lotta bruins fans it was it was one of those ones where it ends and one like you head spinning because of all the all the just went down last two and a half hours but it was just cool to seem like because usually you get those re unions and if it was a normal year they'd have them on the ice you'd have you know we'd be probably be able to talk to few them Before a game and be the regular memories talking to the media but the fact that you had it in a setting like that where these guys roasting each other for two and a half hours. Just shit talking Ryan kesler and like talking about how we hitting ryan miller. Just destroy the buffalo sabres. Like a cool mom and got tim thomas back. I mean you can go through a whole. I did a whole list of the best moments of that when when it went down and it took forever because it would just sit on many little moments during that would just hysterical. It was great as you said because it was completely raw was unedited. It was just you know they let him go. And that was the team those notorious for being fun and interesting and kind of off the cuff kind of stuff in that was exactly what that zoom wasn't again you instead of the time that that was in. You know what happened all around it. It was a nice. It was a great breath of fresh air in a really really really down miserable. Depressing time i. So that was. I was that was also actually on my list. I love that one Another thing that we forget about and this is actually a lot to do with two thousand nine hundred twenty team and this is a while ago now. This was january. I think but the moms tra. I knew with associates the moms trip. And what's funny is i think they'd been struggling up to that point or they a struggle for them was like a few games Kinda that were a little bit. Not normal for them. I three zero three loss. In around the game in nashville they won. And then they had the game back here against Winnipeg with the moms here. I think we've we've messed up the a team on that before stoke z's upper cutting the wall crank so yes folks is happy that we did that but Yes the mobster was big. It was impactful at the time it was fun to cover it with the ejecta. Rusk's mom doing the press conference with them and you just you had kind of all the fun of that you know that everyone was. Everyone was a good mood when that happened in the moms. Were you yelling forum on the ice and stuff so that was a fun little. During that regular season it was a little turning point. I mean not that. I don't think that three game losing streak was going to derail the season. But you did have tampa behind you And that the moms gypsy research jump start a little bit so that was the best moment for me. Those those yeah go through as much as that playoff up in toronto you could price. It was miserable because for most just got kicked out of them again. By tampa the whole setting gnome seemed very happy of being up there. Obviously it was part of the gig right but Seems like assumes that bubble ended in edmonton after tampa bay. Won the cup. Everyone was like. Yeah we're never doing that again. We understand why. But that was not fun I will say that that game. That opening series against carolina had a few good match of so we started talking about the one for me is game for I think that's one wear bruins seemed down and out trailing late in third. He said no energy. And i think that point you know you're you're without to harass kabq wins a game three game four the carolina team Still a team that has been on the cost of breaking out there very good young team. They're going to be even better again this year. They sold under stretching the 'cause who's fantastic player But you view that game game for your trailing is this is either going to be a long series which the bruins fan going to have to play probably tampa and get smokes or they lose for frown which considering they had would be a worst case scenario right then in the third period the carolina. I think sixteen to two in that third period debrusk gets on the board. Here's that that crazy goal. He is leaving is that he doesn't a little bobby or move. And then i think one of the bigger highlights of the child mcevoy. That's only trucking jordan's dodge pop them. I was the best part of that. I think that just on on the bench screaming that never. There's one person like screeching on the on the vengeance soon as he pops them but I think you got a moment like that. And then i think it was thirty seconds later. Connor clifton scored. And then i thank. Masha in scores like two minutes later So i think that that whole game was probably the best playoff game for the bruins during that stretch and i was just kind of a quintessential game where again you issues at The garden wear if you had a four goals in five minutes. Whatever it was The the roof. Be blown off the place but i would probably say that was the best playoff moment to the team in for mac. Avoid and goes big step forward for him. That feels like every year we talk about him making big steps in his development but I think that was a quintessential game. That hole playoff us fantastic to that. It was just another example of just how impact game beyond wasn't he didn't score even score goto february but If he does that. Good transition game all this stuff. He still an elite Defense from indiana and that was a moment that definitely turn the tide for when they really needed it. I agree. I also another important game in that series was game three when i was kinda thrust in their late An absolute onslaught. I remember in the first couple of minutes first. Ten minutes of that period and then lock gives up the goal in the third period. He hands it to everyone. Who wasn't a hurricanes you just shot at him and then they went right in scored and i think it was. It was what two to one at that point. I remember thinking here. It is there goes the damn has broken. Yaroslava lock is going to be puddle and the series is over and locked to his credit completely. Stood up to it all and to me. That was that was huge and that was sort of at a time when like when i remember when they won that game thinking damn maybe lock really has it in him to not only be two hurricanes but like really kinda take steam on a run. Obviously that was not what what happened. What's funny is though when they when the bruins lightning or when the bruins one game one against the lightning. That was another moment where we thought. Oh my god this is a on a run and they didn't play that well in game one and they still won like dan this team they could really do it and then same thing happens. You like the power play. It looked great berge. Ron had that that great. He stole the puck from. I forget who it was. But i'm they had. They had a couple of great shifts like all right. Well this is the way they've been winning games the last five years right. It's gonna be relying top line right now but it works it works. I mean i also think at that point to tampa still seem pretty mortal right. I mean they get. They finally get past columbus but they got five overtime. Guess right that was gonna be another one of that series that game one where it ends in that double. Ot winter for berge around. But don't forget it was at eleven am that morning because the next day i remember just going out. I think the game was scheduled for. I wanna say it was seven or eight o'clock so went to go get my coffee excited actual playoff game in over a year by that point. Got some canoga excited. Get back look at the look at my phone. Like oh okay. We'll this is gonna last longer all right. You know nine pm. I guess we deal with it ten pm a west coast game. I'm going to be burnt out. By the time he actually write this recap but an and just looking at doing the math and being like there. There is no way this is gonna happen. Of course they call it and then I think it was point. Scores like four minutes later But that was just an that was just an early. Look at just how that hole playoff series was going to go for the browns. They just the whole month and a half which is completely bizarre. The best part was they didn't. They never considered. That team could go that deep into overtime. Never in the plans. I mean they legitimately thought about that game being played at like nine thirty ten o'clock at night Which would have been wild wild If that had happened. But i'm glad that it didn't off of that postseason away from that back i'm gonna throw this back again. I believe this was march. February crazies fight against the stars. I think that was march. Opposite was right before the season guy contract that was also the game. I think nick ritchie scored in on like a little wrist. Shot from the top of the circle. That one off like seventeen people Slipped in doing he's here. He's arrived and the best part was when he. Nick ricci scored. That people are like. That's you can produce that. I scored that goal like that could never do that sco feet but so the crazy. I think that was awesome. It was propelled e beat up correctly. So how hounded them and create she's not known for that obviously And that was just kind of funny. Little pink dallas and boston always have great games and they've been on that's been a three theme forever and it's always at the garden. It's never like at american airlines center. It's always when they're at the garden. The games are the best. It was a memorable season open to which it feels. Yes is that you can call it a season opener when it literally happened. I think five years ago now but that was a game where bret ritchie scored on the first shot of the first shot of the season. Alright maybe found in. George w bush there george w bush dropped the opening up the puck. The l.l bean logo came became sentient on the building is screen in hainan scored a wild. It was a wild status for as you said that he feels like five years ago ago forever ago. That feels like it was so long ago and it was what a little over a year ago a year and two months ago but it feels like forever ago. I get my years mixed up now to be pretty like you know every bruin season was. You're the same as the school year. So you'd always have that in your head you know. Oh eight teen two years ago whatever now it feels so different now. It feels like when you had that return to play postseason that felt like its own season. Mansfield so weird But you're right that not. The fight feels like forever ago jeff. Any other moments give any other best moments. I would probably say the bruins last game at td garden which i think was march seventh Which is wild to say that. It's been that long since been actual hockey game over at the garden but that game against tampa bay. I mean you had link five misconducts. You had four fighting mejia's Four three game Plenty of highlights. It felt like just The early preview of what was to come in that playoffs right. It felt like a playoff game. The guidon was going crazy unaware of what was about to hit the fan like five days later pretty much but i mean that just that game just entertaining from the opening puck drop and you had that that sequence at the end of the second period where it just felt like a jack edwards had was gonna explode. There's so much going on. I mean you had like chara. Eating surrogates have stick like fifty feet in the air. Crowley's scores where they they don't call it. There's people just getting like smoked all around the ozone. I mean that that game. I think sandra's been be my. There's a lot of good games like we can. If you want to look at other good ones from the season right. I mean there are some that are in two thousand nine hundred. Today there are limited here but like that blues game In october where wounds were like. Yeah you know. it's a new year. We're not going to look back on. And they just beat the shit out of them from the building from the side of the game. They could have that effort game seven. Yes unfortunately i mean there are a couple of games. Was that game against calgary. Do you remember when calorie scored three goals in the first four minutes. Yes in calgary and everyone's like well all right well this is going to be an l. And they won. The bruins hadn't won four to three. So there's a couple of they always the bruins always have weird game against the west coast. Like they always get smoked in vancouver. That happened earlier this year into one lost nine to three earlier this year and so they always have those weird west coast games Be yeah i think the the game against the lightning in the last game at td garden was was huge. Another moment was mcevoy's first goal. It was the overtime winner against the blackhawks to brusque jumps on top of him. That was kind of funny that and then after that macro went on a tear with points back. Boy i had like a bunch of points in very little games in points. Seventeen so he really kinda just. The dam opened up for charlie mcevoy. Another interesting one and this isn't a a best moment very funny and one that i don't think brad marchand will ever live on was missing. The in the shootout not only has gritty criticize impacts on a lot of stuff. Jeff israel great tweet yesterday Lindsey vonn peak soon on broke up and jeff. St and critic had the sign that said lindsay can do better. Dan listened to new crazy. Yeah the marshawn. Visiting the puck thing especially now that the flyers are in the bruins division. That will give brought up quite a bit. I would imagine this. Yeah marsha few aside from the highlights on the ice in terms of some great goals for pasta knock and all that Had some memorable moments between that he again as you said he was going get chirped. There's one of those things where i think all the saw that and we're like oh no i think ninety eight the nhl twitter was like yes on so He evatt remember when he captured robby fabbri and like yeah hold ryan and brought him into the vange berge like pushed him back out because he didn't know why he was jumping on board with granted. Robby fabbri was on the red wings at the time. So if you have a chance to join the bruins midway through the season you got to take that chance midway through a game through the game. I don't blame robby. Fabbri for trying to make that move. But kevin durant like shit just game so i mean he evatt. He had that one game against when they were in minnesota. So not the game at the garden which is an all time or with the crew doing the frankly tank sally but yala game in minnesota Stole mccoy whose stick like they were just hang up. Hillary's took and brought it to the bench with them. Either brought a bag in like setback through back on the after he'd already sat down so as expected as with every season for the more twenty. Twenty one Brad marchand continues to bring the highlights in pretty much every area of the game right. Oh yes and i expect said. I don't expect it to end anytime soon. So those are my best moments. I don't have any more. I'm wondering if you have any more i don't. I'm kind of out of him. I think it's the one i have is jerem noted. Boston manager on again interviewed for the snowstorm. A great but other than that. I'm pretty much all the highlights. Got another actually. Another important moment was signing craig smith. That can't be forgotten. That was another big moment. Yeah i'm trying to think of funny moments from the end of twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty and the postseason. There wasn't a ton. But yeah i mean. I also notable moment in the lead up to rask leaving the bubble to comment of. This doesn't feel like playoff hockey That was. That was a little ominous. That's at twitter on fire. That actually was ridiculous but other than that. I don't think there was a lot. It's kind of sad because twenty nine thousand nine. There was obviously the cop. There was losing the cop. There was the lead up to it. In the playoffs. There was a lot of fun moments from that season and that whole stretch of time but we we covered everything. I don't think we've we've missed anything and with that that is the end of twenty twenty but that is as the year There is no more big hockey moments. Unless we're recording this on december thirtieth a must've bruins have some big news coming in the next two days Which i don't imagine that there will be on new year's eve but crazier things have happened. Yes but before we go is there. What can the people look forward to at Boston sports journal. Yeah we're going to recap kind of the year that was for this bruins team. I've seen a lot of highlights couple of low lights or we're gonna break that down and then we've got training camp in a couple of days so we're gonna take a look at some of the questions that need to be answered over this to campus is going to be ten days as there's a lot to handle over kind of short so so it's going to be interesting to say the least break that down as well over i'd be ashamed of subscribe there. You can follow me on twitter at khan ryan ninety three and there's no more exciting search with season opening at new jersey. Of course that is the most exciting option. That could have happened. You would have thought you know the bruins. we'll get into this in future episodes. You thought maybe the first game. It'd be like in boston against the flyers or in pittsburgh penguins because runs pretty big market team is that it's at new jersey. Search season knock annoying But at any rate that is poke the bear episode. Twenty four happy new year. Everyone cheers to twenty twenty one being a lot. Better that is connor ryan. This is jeff.
