"And we have matter of fact. We have 7 national touring exhibitions and so we are always on the move. Like I said, I want everyone to come to Kansas City. But if you can't come to us, we'll come to you, just let us know and we will bring one of those exhibitions out to your area because we want people to have access buster to a story that is still not a part of the pages of American history books. And it was not a thing that was every time people didn't want to know about the Negro leagues. They just had no way to know about the Negro leagues until this museum emerged. And so it is still very much in common upon me to make sure that I provide access and I hope I wet your appetite to the point that you want to come to Kansas City and experience this wonderful museum. All right, one of the great Negro league stars, of course, was satchel Paige. I mentioned to you before we started. I was gone. YouTube last week, and I saw this interview that he did with dick Cabot. And I don't know what year that was. My guest was like 1970, 71. And I just love listening to him talk. And he talked, I think he said he would, in some years, he'd pitch as many as a 150 games, and what I loved about sagittal in that interview was you could first off, I mean, clearly he's one of the best ever what he did, but also the confidence and the acumen and the understanding of him. And so I'm going to ask you for your favorite central page story, but the comp that I had as I'm listening to them and I'm watching his body language, I was like, that is Pedro Martinez. You know what I mean? Like, Peter Martinez was 5 foot 11, but he would stand on the mound with that little rye grin that he had, like this is going to beat you. He knew he was going to. Yes. And he was looking forward to matching wits against you. And that was such a as buckled mill would say, you might beat him when he was out there messing around. But busted when he was locked and loaded, you couldn't touch it. And so one of my favorite stories is actually the story that I initially heard the great Vin Scully tale. And then I had it verified where why did Herzog with whitey and George George Brett, mister Herzog is over at the K, they back at one and sweets holding court. Everybody said, well, mister Herzog and Georgia back there, why don't you go and say hello to him? And I do. And the first question I asked him I said, I heard the story about you and satchel page, I want to know if it's true. He says is absolutely the truth. Well, the year is 1956. Now, if you believe that satchel was born in 1906, which I absolutely do not. But that would make him 50 years old now. And he is now pitching for the Miami Marlins in triple-A. And he is pitching highly effectively whether the man was 50 or possibly 60 years old at the time. And so who was on that team, a young outfielder named why did hers are? And so they're playing in Rochester, New York. And so busted the Rochester team have a knot hole in the outfield wall. And they had a promotion that said, if any batter could hit the ball on the fly through the hole, you could win a $100,000. Well, man, it was virtually impossible. But mister Herzog says, he decides he's jogging. He took some baseballs with him because he wanted to see if the ball would fit through the hole. Well, there's just enough circumference to squeeze that ball through the hole. He goes and gets satchel. He says, satchel, you always bragging about how great your control is and how you can throw a baseball over a chewing gum wrapper. Honest to God is true. He did not warm up using home plate. The old man warmed up, he would have to catch a stick of foil chewing gum wrapper on top of home plate and wherever the catcher moved to chewing gum wrapper such a right over the top of the chewing gum wrapper. So you always bragging about how you could throw baseball over chewing gum rapper. I bet

"Hi. Welcome to KGO. You're on with John Shea. Go ahead. Mhm. John so real quick. There was a great book called Whitey about Whitey Ford isn't there, So when you first brought him up? I remember that it's difficult. You can't say that word anymore because it's you know, like people in Colorado with KKK mask on, but so what? We used to go to Candlestick. I was four or 56 years old or something. It was 50 cents to sit in the outfield and they had a lot of doubleheaders back then there's no such thing as double hitters back now and so, but we will walk around and they let us leave the outfield. Bleachers and go to the front and he would come out and sign. I have signed baseball card from him and all his teammates. He was the nicest guy. This was before they started making a stand in line in paying $50 for an autograph. I imagine exactly, And I couldn't imagine Willie would ever do that. No, I can't. I couldn't imagine either, John. You know him? What do you think? Would he charged for an autograph? Oh, yeah. Who wouldn't? I mean, that's what the thing is with. Really amazing. Top salary was $165,000 right? He missed out. He didn't have an agent. There is no free agency. There is no union. And after retirement, the eighties blew up and all of a sudden their autographs were worth something he wished he would have kept his cap in his uniform and his glove. Uh, because he didn't know they were going to be worth anything. And so that's when in the eighties, all these players who some of them didn't have much money Suddenly they became popular on the autograph circuit and the card shows and which was great for them to the pensions weren't what they are now. So that was their way to make a buck and profit off their baseball career because they certainly didn't do it as players. Let's go to Damon. Damon is calling from San Leandro Damon. Hi. Welcome to kgo your I'm with John Shea. The book is 24 life stories and lessons from the say Hey, kid, go ahead. Oh, hi, Pat. Uh, I just want to say about Willie Mays. He's about all time Favorite ballplayer and, um He was actually almost signed by the Boston Red Sox. Also Hank Aaron, imagine if those two guys have been batting back to back, it probably would have had 1000 home runs in that ballpark. Well, what happened? Why didn't the Red Sox pick them up? Well, they they had raced at that particular pass at that particular time. They didn't want no black ballplayers. They would've blast They were the last team to integrate. They were the last team to integrate fund. Black ballplayers are concerned, that's all I want to say. I love Willie Mays. Yeah, well, they shot themselves in the foot, didn't they, John? Damon is absolutely right. The Red Sox were the last team to integrate with the Bay Area zone pump See Green in 1959 12 years after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier. Ownership with the Red Sox, Uh, scouted Willie Mays. And guess what. The Red Sox is double a team played at Rick Woodfield in Birmingham. And shared the facility with Willie's Birmingham Black barons So no major league team knew Willie Mays like the Boston Red Sox. I was talking to Willie the other day about this And he said the Red Sox could've had be easy and Imagine that the Red Sox were awful for a long time because they refused to have any minorities on their team. And every you know the American League was slow. The Yankees were slow. The Dodgers were first. The Giants had the most diverse clubhouse in baseball in the early by the early sixties. But even in those early years, it was quoted as the Giants didn't have one or three or five. They had two or four So the black players could room together because even then they couldn't go to the restaurants with the white players that can go the hotels with the white player. This is Willie Mays being denied, and he's absolutely right that the Yankees scouted them out of Birmingham, the Dodgers, the White Sox, the Red Sox, the Boston Braves. Who blew it. All these teams blew it. The Giants won the lottery. They gave him the money and Think of, if not just Boston, Damon. But what if Hank and Willie were on the same team with the Braves and the Yankees were in on him as well. What if Mantle and Mays We're on the same team who play center field, But all these teams had reason stupid reason he couldn't hit the curb. He's not our kind of guy, and obviously a lot of racist owners just didn't want a black man at that time. And it just they all look silly it all you know they You know, they spent the rest of their time regretting it, obviously because the great maze could have turned any of these teams in the dynamic wall clubs. So, um, is there any footage that you know of where people actually recorded the games that were played in the Negro leagues? It seems like there were so many fabulous players that those would have been some amazing games to watch. Yeah, You're right. And I mean, there is actually I've been in the Negro League Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, and I recommend everybody go there. It's just a fabulous place and Bob Kendrick, the president is remarkable. And he has quoted in this book speaking about how Willie Mays validated so many Negro League players who didn't get the chance. Right? Uh and and Willie, the teenager on the Birmingham black barons is the soup. Or starve yet his teammates Who were all very good, some of whom should have been in the majors. Um one or two were but only for a short spell. Already Wilson, the shortstop, Bill Greece and the picture they had just cups of coffee in the major's wife because of the color of their skin. The white team's wanted the superstars. If we're going to get average players to sit on the bench or You know, be a platoon player or be a relief pitcher. We'll just stick with the white guys. And that was a shame for all those teammates of Willie and all the people who came before Willie. But Willie in Hank, and all these wonderful ballplayers validated the careers of all those Negro leaks. Some you know, some people might have said Well, were they good enough? Of course they were good enough. Major league Baseball wasn't good enough. Uh, you know, as it turned out, um and Babe Ruth faced inferior competition because Babe Ruth never faced minority pitching, or, um, yeah. You know, there was never just Gibson, you know? Cool. Papa Bell, Oscar Charleston, Satchel Paige. None of these guys were able to play in white baseball so How good were those players? Really? I mean, they were fast. They were wonderful. All these white players, superstars. They were great, but maybe they wouldn't been as great if they say if everybody was allowed to play in those leaks and compete. Yeah, Exactly. John Shea is my guest. The book is 24 life stories and lessons from the say, Hey, Katie wrote the book with Willie Mays and we'll be right back with John on K G. Okay, we get it. You don't want to be hearing a progressive commercial right now. So let us tell you something You do want to hear. You.

So if you go out to a baseball game, you know if you wanted to see the Yankees, I mean, the Yankee 10 strikes were enough that Yankee Stadium was enough to draw people Negro leagues. They needed to drop people because of the style of the play. It had to be entertaining so well. He was a teenager fresh out of high school, Actually, not even At a high school quite yet when he started playing with the barons, and that's how he learned how to play the game that you play it well, but you also play it in an entertaining fashion. And there's no doubt that Willie and his generation who did come out of the Negro leagues influence Major League baseball for the better. It opened up the game to a diversity of style diversity of skin color. That's a debt of gratitude. We all Oh, and I hope we never lose that threat because it is an entertaining game because of that great stuff, Tom.

Peter had the great idea goes well, why stop here Because why don't we have, he said you've been telling me about this Negro League Museum. I've never been. I said, Well, it's amazing. He is. Well, let's let's have somebody fly out from there. Does. That guy is gold marker available to work here can be our to run some of our events. I'm just asking the way he's getting stuff done Over here. Story flew Bob Kendrick out from Kansas City, and he remembers you put him up in downtown Mill Valley. He had that great line. Could Bob comes from, you know, Bob comes from barbecue. Are you saying downtime of beautiful Valley in Poly right next to the old sweet water in the old newspaper water, but it's beautiful. It's where we had my mom and Dad's 50th Anniversary party. Beautiful spot anyway. Her father goes down. You just want to get a cup of coffee.

Oy, Lottie was one of the listen to a ball game and get a cup of coffee in the morning. You know what I mean? So and then regular coffee to two stories, and that one is that then he wanted to play golf at the Olympic Club, and we couldn't do it. Cause was a Monday in the club is closed. I took him out to Mill Valley Beauty. You know, I was like I felt when it's really, really the third hole. You gotta walk up this steep hill. We got to the top. And he says Who? His man, Brian. All this milk this healthy mill valley living is gonna kill me. Nice what he said. I had a great line. But anyway, he then he spoke at old Mill School. Our beautiful little school in town at the auditorium on a Saturday afternoon. He did a speech to the whole. Town we got we packed the place but 300 people in there and he told the story, So when he flew out, I pick him up. The airport was the morning Jim Davenport was having they were having the funeral for Jim Davenport, Oracle Park and 18 T Park. And I knew that Willie was going to be there and Barry Bonds gonna be there. He wanted to talk to Willie and Barry about the Negro League Museum and get them involved and get them back in. He always wanted to get some face time with them. So I said, Well, we think so. I told Mario Elliot, is it okay? If I bring Bob Kendrick to this thing? It was a private affairs only like 50 people there because what do you mean? Is it okay? Of course. Bring Bob Kendrick. You know, so we went really spoke very spoke anyway. Then we had this, Mario said. I'll get you a private audience with Bob because they kind of ushered Willy out of the room. We did it on the club level. And we and so Mario that gives us the high sign we go on the elevator down to the You know the area where you enter by the back parking lot by left behind left field so well. He was in a golf cart there waiting. And Bob Kendrick and I walked out and and Willie remembered Bob from a previous meeting. And Bob was like, you know, here's a Birmingham black baron. Yeah, and they just start talking and talk. And I'm just sitting there, man, I just got there and then They start talking old names. This guy, that guy, this guy Satchel comes up that satchel baby because I never get first time I faced Satchel. He's out 16 years old. First time I come out. The first pitch is so hit a double in the gala cheese. Good Lord. So next time I come up and essentially looks at me and he just looked at me, Nagy. He throws a fastball right past me. Strike one. Fastball right past You. Strike two fastball right past me. Strike three and he says Now go sit down, little boy. Classic classic man. Now go Sit down, little boy. Awesome. Uh, s O Satchel took him lightly the first time and tried the second time. Do we think Satchel was their great question? Well, that was pretty 47 7 1947 48. So so he was probably the warty or something with me for the love of God knows there's no pitch count on Satchel Paige. Just you wanna get real mad? Real quick about something with Willie? We were looking at his baseball reference pages for duties. Talking about it. You get lost on that thing. You just did. What? He did it again. He would've passed. Ruth had it not been for 52 53. But we're looking at this. How about this Hall of Fame votes? 409 at a 4 32, who wasn't putting Mazing the whole can't vote for what we're doing is not completely a lot of flaws. Maybe next year will be asked Amazing voters from Master Ross Homestead.

"And that's where I got to read, you know, see some of the great players off all time, including with Henry Aaron came through their Mudcat Jim Mudcat Grant, and I know you cover all these things. But that will be a conversation for another day. Well, I mean, let me quickly ask, we just lost him. Karen, of course, just a few months ago and one of the genuinely great not only players but people and one of the most important people in the history of American sports, and so many ways. Tell me that you're saying that you saw him play when you were a little kid. I'm minus that my grandfather regale me with stories of when Hank Aaron will come through there, along with Jim Mudcat Grant. Cool, Papa Bell, you name them. They all came through Hattiesburg to play And it was not a typical for there to be double header games played them because certainly back in segregated America. That was one of the principal forms of entertainment for the fans. Then he even told me about Satchel Paige and the hesitation pitch back then greening that folks just couldn't hit and just to think. Hey, Greeny! What was Satchel Paige was? I guess he in his early forties when it got to the major league, and they even outlaw Of the picture then, and it wasn't as effective as it was early in those days, So that's why baseball was my first love. My folks thought that I was kind of become a picture, and I played C Y O baseball greedy against them. Some of my teammates there's a blonde haired kid named Steve Garrett, who went on to play in North Carolina. He was a multi sport star, Greenie, a gave up baseball because of this, and it practiced. I'm standing there in the batter's box, and I know Steve has got an array of pictures. He went to play a Chapel Hill, North Carolina Chapel, help he This pitch Greeny. I see it coming up. That's the curveball. Of course, he didn't take this long. Well, that curveball is gonna break in about a nanosecond. You know what? That's a late breaking furball. What's going on here? I dropped into the dirt. And, of course, the ball at the last nanosecond went across the plate, Stevie, right, so I gave up baseball because I did not have what's but the will to stand in there at that time. That's when I picked up. Basketball is my love. Probably wise screening in the great JB one last thing I wanted to ask you Because a little birdie whispered in my ear that you have a story. I'm going to find fascinating that involves Len bias and I am dying to hear it. You know what Greeny. That was a tough story of this was when I was working with the local CBS affiliate, W. USA, and, of course, being a basketball star here in the area, blessed to be working on that station and Larry Bird with the Celtics was so excited when they the Celtics drafted Len Bias it was going to resurrect his career. His enthusiasm or important was Larry Bird was consistently a beast on the basketball floor. But The Celtics were thrilled when our back who was a friend who's lived here in Washington, D. C. He was all excited when I got there early morning news and the call that Lynn Bias had passed from an overdose. First person I called was red are back. He always called me Brownie. And I said, Hey, I still call him coach. I said, Coach, I'm just calling to express my condolences. I'm so sorry to hear about Len bias as I'm sure you are. And Len Bias was a friend. And Red says waking up with a groggy voice. Brownie. What are you talking about? I said, Oh, Coach, You mean to tell me you don't know, he says Browning. What is it, and I told him what the situation was. And of course, that was a very tough phone call, and it shook up the world for sure. But that was one of the It's actually a low light, but certainly a significant amount of stone and I got a chance to talk with the lens. Mom Lenny's bias. Another's. And, of course, his brother also passed not too long after that, but Mrs Lonnie's bias in the family very, very strong folks. And, uh and I thanked him for giving me access during that time to tell the tough story. You broke the news to our back that Len Bias had died. You know, let me just finish it by saying We probably are talking to a large number of people who are not old enough to have seen Len Bias. People like J. Billa's tells me all the time because he played against him, Len Bias would have been One of the three or four best players in the end before 10 years if he had not died before he ever got a chance to set foot on the court. Most people I think, know the story of that tragic death. Tell people who don't know just how good a player he was going to be. And again, you're right, greedy and you'll have to put some context for those who won't remember back then. But David Thompson, as you will recall was just phenomenal athlete in the SEC conference, and he and Lynn Bias used to have some flat out wars. Nickname and what it may not be very delicate, and you know how athletes green and give each other's names. They called him horse H O R S E because he was the strongest, of course, could leap. He loved the crunch time. You could give him that ball in crunch time, and he would deliver using what they thundering slam dunk, But he was flat out a phenomenal basketball player, and we couldn't wait much less Larry Bird and the Celtics. For him to get to the NBA to see what he was going to do, but flat out one of the all time greats ever in college and I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to see what he would have been in the NBA green. How tragic I mean, died of an overdose right after the draft and never got the chance to play in the N B a at all. James Brown. What a what a pleasure. This is. Thank you so much for taking all this time for me The best wishes to your daughter with the excellent taste and be well best to your family. And I hope we get a chance to do this again soon. Thank you so much. Green into your wife, Stacy and your two kids as well to have a great day, buddy. Thanks so much for having me. That's a pleasure. James Brown with me here on ESPN Radio.

I've got you name it. I've got it. But Koda standings from baseball Prospectus are something I love to read and that website baseball prospectus. Is awesome. And as a baseball fan, I love reading their contacts. So this morning it popped up in my email. And then I had a few people tweeting at me, Cat Man. Have you seen this? Pecota standings. Are they run their proprietary computer program for every single player once 95% of the player movement is done. And then they say, Okay, Here's where we project your team is going to finish now. Obviously, injuries trades in season late adjustments and additions can have a factor. First of all, Jonathan Hood baseball survival. In the American League, who is projected to have the best team in terms of winds. I don't know. Yankees Yankees 97 Ad 970.4 and 64.6 97 wins. Tampa finishes second that division 86, Toronto and 80 for the rest of the track. The A L. West Houston. Seven games clear of Joe Maddon. Angels. 93 wins to 86 wins The A L. Central What is the Order of finish for the top three. Well, it should be the White Sox. But something tells me that they have the Twins. First socks second. And a 13 could be the Indians or You know, uh, the Royals Minnesota wins the division with 90.6 wins. Cleveland finishes second with 85.7 and the White Sox limp in 83 wins. There's just no way There's just no way that there's no way that the Sox are third in the American League Central. There's this note. Listen, I could be pie in the sky and tell you that they're going to win the division out, right? I don't know if that's the case, but they're not third. You're not third. I don't know what you do what you're doing there, but they're not good. Not me doing it. All right. Well, I don't know what you're what you're trying to do there, but it's not third. Okay, Let's go to the National League. Don't second, eh? So what? How many wins for the socks? Did you say 83? Well, then I don't understand what they're talking about there with all that talent that the Sox have as a team that was in the playoffs last year. Was it not? Yep. Going or am I having a fever? Dream sock? The Sox were in the stocks in the playoffs against the A's last year. They were so so so now they don't get a bump up to at least the second place again. I could say for sure they could go out, right, But I'm not gonna do that here in February. But at least they'll be in the playoffs in the mix as the number two spot so their chance of winning the ale Central is 13%. Cleveland 25%, Minnesota. 61% of the time wins the division. The Cleveland makes some blockbuster deals that I missed here in the winter. Yeah, they got rid of Francisco Lynn door. And then what? Not a lot than they did They sign Satchel Paige? Yeah, he's back. Okay. Buck O'Neil. Is he over there, too? He was actually meeting with them today. Okay. Deal. Josh Gibson. So I don't know what So what? What did the Indians do to solidify themselves in that spot? I do? I don't know. Okay, so they're doing good pitching, okay? National League. The team with the most wins is obvious. It is the L A Dodgers. They have the best record in baseball, 103 and 50. It's one of 2.9 of 59.1 on your dial. Yes, correct. The San Diego Padres will finish seven games in arrears with all they've spent 95.6 wins and then no one else even close No one even a 500, Activision and L. East. Is a runaway for the Mets. 95.5 wins Washington who spent a ton 85 Philly at 83 Atlanta, who many like Barely over 500 Miami who was a playoff team, 68 wins an awful team. The Braves get pretty tonight got slipped that far back? I don't think so. Okay, I know the Mets of the hot name. You know, it's Steve Cohen, the new owner and all that I I don't see that. So here's Here's what's funny. You're gonna push the Mets all way to the top, just based on their off season, But you don't give the nationals whether you have the nationals was second in that 10 games back. Hey, the Mets will win the division, according to baseball prospectus, who's usually very accurate by the way. 77% of the time..

It's crazy equals seven and wins four. He's way behind. Brady and old timers will say 50 years from now, because you know the eyeball test. Holmes is already better than Brady's ever been by quite a bit if you just eyeballing him. And by then the numbers will tell you the same thing, actually, but in terms of accomplishment, leadership all those things. 50 years from now, some old timers going to tell someone Brady deep Mahomes when the homes of them his pride, and Brady was 43 the homes was favored in that came, you know, like it's going to be very, very difficult.

Brady's gotten lucky. He's also genetically gifted, obviously. He pays attention to like rigorous preparation and all those things. I'm not going to say there's going to be a cliff.

Not only opened the doors for other African American players, it also signaled the end of the Negro leagues. And the story goes. Very short story.

"This is balance of power in Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Western. Want to recap now? What happened just a short time ago. Way now have the formal document in which President Donald Trump through his lawyer's response that one article of impeachment, claiming that he incited sedition against the United States in and some of substance what the president says his number one. You don't have jurisdiction because I'm not present anymore doesn't apply to me so with the whole thing has to stop. Something that was argued actually, and was voted on with majority but a narrow majority agreeing that they could go forward, and that's really suggested a question about super majority voting to convict also going on to say whatever I said, whatever I said about what I thought about the election, whether it was appropriate or not. Whatever I said to the mob or the crowd on the mall. That was protected speech constitutionally, and the Constitution protects even unpopular speech, basically saying, what I said was not very popular, but it nevertheless has protected so we now have a better sense of what President Trump is going to present for his case, although I must say in a quick perusal of the document, he goes pretty light and the election was stolen, which is rumored to be something he wanted argued strongly that there's not a lot of that in this document. At this point, that would be so that's the pleadings. Now we're gonna have a trial We expect starting sometime next week in the Senate. Let's turn now from the trump impeachment to President Biden and President Line's actions on climate he signed as Syria's of climate executive orders last week. And he said in doing so that it was not only climate day. But it was jobs Day, as well as his policies would create millions of new jobs for the economics of what he is proposing. Let's go now to Bloomberg International economics and policy correspondent. Michael McKee. So, Michael, what is he talking about? With all these millions of jobs, basically David, he is trying to make a virtue out of necessity. There are millions of people who are out of work, and many administrations come in in that situation and proposed infrastructure plans, which is exactly what Joe Biden is doing, but he's casting it in terms of jobs and casting infrastructure. In terms of green energy. Let's take a look at what would have happened Had we not had the coronavirus recession, you could see the blue line if we've been growing at the 2019 pace all the way up until today. This is where we'd be in terms of GDP instead of down here. So this is the space that Biden wants to fill in. You look at the jobs that he is trying to teach support, and that is in the energy sector of the green energy sector. You know, Satchel Paige once said, Don't look back. Something's gaining on you. Well, this stuff in this category The the renewable energy jobs are gaining rapidly on the jobs that we used to have our were the foundation of our energy society. You look out in the oil industry and look at wind and solar and how many jobs and there's a million 500,000 jobs in the auto industry, building traditional cars for up to 500,000. Or hybrids and Elektronik vehicles, so Very quickly changing, and Biden wants to move on that This is the sort of summary of his plan infrastructure, build, rebuild bridges and roads and things but also build the green energy of the future. AUTOS TRANSITION toe alternative fuels eventually phased them out. That would be after he leaves office. Then you would have the federal government spent a lot more on transit cities over 100,000 would get money for transit buildings upgrade those Upgrade four million of them to make them more energy efficient. And basically you end up with a carbon pollution free power sector by 2035. That's his goal. Whether he could reach it or not, is another question. But if he can, it probably does mean a lot of jobs. The question is how many get lost in other industries? And how does that balance out? Mike. That was great Recap in any any hit that includes Satchel Paige and has got to be a winner. Thank you so much to Bloomberg's Michael McKee. Joining us now for more on this is Ellen Hughes Crime like she is senior resident fellow at Third Way's climate and energy program. Earlier, Miss comic served as the chief economist of the Ford Motor Company and at the Department of Commerce. So, Ellen thank you so much for being with us. Give us your take, as an economist on president bind, rather bold predictions about the creation of jobs from this climate approach. I appreciate Michael's set up. I think he's absolutely right. When you look at the jobs that are going to be created. As a result of this plan, you can see how the capital markets are already moving there. And the technologies advanced such that just taking autos in particular The battery cost has come down so that now when a customer goes in tow look at different products. I'm going to see that an electric vehicle is going to be very price competitive. So starting from that core, what the Biden plan did was really build out and say, Look, the technology has moved their capital markets air moving there were going to nudge it and get the flywheel going even faster. And it gives you a lot of optimism really, that we can achieve this kind of reduction and carbon pollution. As we look out over the next 10 to 20 years, it's really where everyone is going and if we don't get there My God, We're gonna lose a lot of competitive force against China and Europe..

Larry King. And I was reading one of the stories online this week about Larry after his passing and the line, paragraph said in an era filled with Star news men. Larry King was a giant among the most prominent questioners on TV and a host to presidents movie stars of world class athletes for that quarter century Larry King live on CNN was highlighted by more than 30,000 interviews, which seems impossible 30,000 interviews. And this jumped out to me. With an affable, easygoing demeanor that distinguished him from or intense TV interviewers. King perfected a casual approach to the question and answer format, always leaning forward and listening intently to his guest, rarely interrupting. Larry King was fond of saying, I've never learned anything while I was talking. And so I want to take a couple of things out of that description of Larry King's career 30,000 interviews. Presidents. Movie stars world class at class athletes. And the the ability that perfection he had in Doing the Q and a probing to find out things about The individual. He was interviewing the story of his the way he approached authors. He did not. Read the book Prior to the interview. He did not like reading. He didn't like reading a whole lot of background on his guest. His answer was always I want. I want to be surprised. I don't wanna know. You know a ton of stuff about I want to be. I want the curiosity be real and my response to be real when I hear something for the first time. And Larry was really good at it. It's something I'm not really good at listening so so intently that he'd have the perfect follow up question. I don't think I'm very good at that. Um, toe. Listen to the answer. I will. I like structuring an interview. I have a general idea of what I'm gonna ask going in. I'm not rigid enough to ask every single question playoff of answers, but He He do interviews without anything written down and just he would wing it, and he was spectacular at that. Here's my question. Saying, Well, what's the topic lands? Tell me. Here's the topic. We'll call this in honor of Larry King will call it sports talk Q and a Give me Give me a sports figure. Pastor present. Living or dead. Give me a sports figure. You'd want to sit down in an interview. And what would you want to ask them? For example. Can you imagine sitting down with Paul Brown? And talking with Paul Brown about the innovations. And he came up with the way the game was his vision for the game. Could you imagine asking Paul Brown about his decision to pass on Bill Walsh. Named Tiger Johnson, the Bengals coach. And then what? He thought of what Walsh went on to become. Can you imagine if you ask Paul Brown what he thinks of the Bengals franchise. Over the last 30 years. What the franchise has tried to do and what the franchise has accomplished. I would love and I'd make it like a round table. If I could. I would love to talk with somebody like Satchel Paige. Or Josh Gibson or cool Papa Bell from the Negro League and ask them about the burn storming days of the Negro League and the talent that we've, we've heard some stories about, but to have them really tell the story of what it was like facing a cool Papa bell or what?

If you're just going to go for a walk down the street In the hopes that you won't step on a syringe that can make it through the bottom of your work boots. You can watch junkies shoot up on the streets of San Francisco easily. Openly and regularly without any problem, and now suddenly In the pandemic. They're concerned that they're getting too many homeless people. There because they're too generous. And helping home was there putting homeless people up in luxury hotels? They're putting luxury of the federal government is we discovered yesterday? Will probably pick up the cost for this. So we're paying people to stay at the Ritz out in San Francisco. Homeless people is a nice place to shoot up. But this news this compassion Which isn't really compassion at all. You would still be a junkie. There's no condition that you not be a junkie. It's just you go get your hotel room, which I'm sure is gonna be trashed, and we're gonna have to pay to repair as well. As federal taxpayers. But homeless people are hearing about all the wonderful treatment and tolerance out in San Francisco. And guess what's happening. You're getting more and more homeless. People trekking up San Francisco because it's good thing. So what London breed, the mayor of San Francisco is saying now. Is don't come, And in fact, if you work here by April of last year, we're not going to help you. They have a lot of homeless people out the same Francisco there fill up and they have to go retroactively, because what if somebody Becomes homeless if you're not registered as a homeless person by April of last year.

If you were not On our list to receive support and care and are homeless system as of April last year, and you basically came to San Francisco, thinking that there's an opportunity for you to get help in some capacity. Unfortunately, we will not be able to help you. We're not going to jump the line. Or someone who just decided to come to San Francisco yesterday. We are not going to help you view this came yesterday, or, you know any time in the last eight months or if you lived in San Francisco. And you lost your job because I locked down the city and now you're living on the streets were not going to help you either. You were only going to help the Junkie homeless person who's chronically homeless who was homeless long before. Any of this, which I would think. And perhaps this isn't the most compassionate of thoughts. But I would think that those of the people best suited for, you know, being able to live on the streets. Say, just saying. We're not going to jump the line for anybody. What's just kind of funny because the other day, Tom Friedman, Who is a columnist for The New York Times.

What Tom Friedman was doing is saying, Look, I'm politically connected. I'm important. Somebody reach out to me. I've been trying to pull some strings and I have been able to do it behind the scenes. So now I have to make this appeal. Publicly Add to that the story yesterday about Hollywood rich Hollywood types. Lying around the country cutting lines to get the vaccine offering of the $10,000 a shot two doctors to get the vaccine wanting cuts and cuts and cuts liberals. We'll definitely take cuts when it's for them. But when it comes to the compassion, caring for other people like the homeless out in San Francisco, they're not interested. You can't do that. We will not skip the line. You just get in line. Now. You can skip the line to enter the country just do so illegally. And you're in game on. You can skip the line of your rich Hollywood guy and comply anywhere to get the shot. Or you just willing to pony up a lot of money to your doctor and your doctor is Lacking and ethics. But not in the name of compassion for other people. No, no, no, no, no. Can't do that won't do that. We have standards. They're flexible. They're liquid and they don't apply to us. But damn it. We have standards. Liberalism. Let's go to the phones, Shall we? Let's start with my buddy Bob in Parkville. Hello, Bob. Welcome. Good morning, my friends, the place of the mayor of San Francisco. It's just I'm getting right. Just go. Uh The order and use that policy the year in our southern border, kid, I know, cutting the line make up your mind. Can those suckers following the law? What a bunch of losers want to talk about the telephone and In the pen of this president. Yeah, having office right now. I've told him the audience over the years, but this guy's a phony from the word. Go on. He's a coward. He skipped the line and doing that now when they asked him why, then you said, because I had other things to do. 58,000 and died. Maybe the man that took his place in line went to Vietnam and died. You know, one of quiet, not you. That man took, uh, fighting this place. He was dead instead of, but it's simple is that I'm not saying that happened, but it's a possibility. It's a definite possibility. But what's what's telling Bob is that Joe's never been asked about it? No. I understand all that was a Democrat. That's why, right, uh Satchel Paige wrote of many years ago, My father implied behind Satchel Beijing, the old awake and he wrote a book called Don't Look Over your Shoulder because Something might be catching up with you and everything is going to catch up with this jackass in the office right now, is that the word truth? If he's going to screw up somewhere alone, all right, and not just once, but many times because that's the way he is. William built It's who he never admit that he ever made a mistake in his life. Well for that to happen. He'd have to have to be somebody willing to point it out. Besides Peter Doocy, who's the White House correspondent for Fox News, and he only gets occasional questions, so Yesterday, he asked him what they discussed with Putin when he discussed with Putin as Joe Biden was walking out of the room. Bob and Joe Biden just responded. You He sends his best, and he just walked away and the press corps gathered there laughed now, if Donald Trump had done anything remotely close to that flippant of a remark as he's sort of shuffling out of the room. That would have doubted in it out of him. The whole story the whole rest of the news day, But Joe Biden condone it because their fans I would have been really horrible at covering the that wasn't alive during the Beatles. But if If I were covering the Beatles, and there were some scandal, I'd be really horribly because I'd just be star struck by them. And, you know, then that's how the press is. We are getting propaganda and fan letters from, you know, the basically newsletters from the Fan club. Not journalism. I appreciate the call Bob. Is Joe. Hold on a second. We'll take a break and we'll come back and get you could I'm getting looks from Gary. But first, did you know there's an average of 10,000 baby boomers retiring every single day? That's over 36 million new retirees in the next 10 years, all starting to collect Social Security. And sign up for Medicare.

"satchel paige" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"And you know when a legend like Hank Aaron dies, especially someone like Aaron who I, You know, hear of, and it almost feels like folklore because of what he was able to accomplish, but obviously Playing his career, But before I was born, I think it's always helpful to add some context to what he was actually able to do as a player and that the challenges he faced in doing so in his time and help me do so I'm joined now by a friend of mine, My old boss at Sports Illustrated in the co director. Of the hammer of Hank Aaron. Film, Josh Oshinsky. First of all, Josh, How you doing, Man? Robin, What is up, my man? I missed you, buddy. That's the same here, man on. You know if I know two things about you. One is you have an extreme passion for documentary of filmmaking document documentary features and two is you have an extreme passion. For baseball. When this project came together, I think it was in 2015. What was the impetus for it at that point in time to to profile Hank Aaron at that moment? This is for a serious called major league legends. And this is something that I think baseball is. Still struggling with which is how to take the You said it the midst the legends of you know that everybody knows by one name the baby. Right, Ted, the splinter Hank and turn them into a conversation. That's just a little bit cooler. We should really be talking about Henry Aaron in a completely different way. That's not so stayed. He was a bad ass, and I wish there was a way. For the national conversation to get that sense across right that, you know when he grew up in Mobile, Alabama. He was growing up in the equivalent of the basketball scene in L a today but instead of Ron James and dire Williams He was growing up in a time where it was willing. The Covey and Satchel Paige and Billy Williams. Right, it Z. That's that's really what we wanted to get across with this series, and what I still to this day would love to figure out a way to get across the people about Henry and Yeah, I saw some of it last night. It was airing on our M O. B network. I think it's also available. Amazon Prime video. If you wanna check out the movie itself, and yesterday, Josh, you tweeted that you spend a day. Mr Aarons House. Once we made a movie about him, obviously the one we're referencing and you wrote his life was hard in ways most of us could never understand and his accomplishments truly staggering against what? He stared down daily. Obviously, he's chasing Babe Ruth. Obviously there there is just disgusting and vile racism, you know that he's facing in doing so. But when you say is life is hard, can you contextualize? That a little bit so people understand just what this man persevered through in accomplishing what he did. So I think everyone knows to some degree about the letters that.
MLB Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The Negro Leagues
"Baseball is marking the anniversary of the Negro leagues created 100 years ago. The league's showcased black baseball players players who couldn't play on the major teams because of the color of their skin. Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was Tear before the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that players try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination, so they slept in the buses. And they couldn't go in places to eat so one person would go to the back door. When get food for all the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust to segregation and racism he saw in the US It wasn't easy to see all the problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just want a if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass father one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month. The museum has pushed back its year long celebration of the centennial to next year and renamed it Negro Leagues. 101
