We are the minimalists, and we're here we're actually taking the month of February. Also, whether you're listening to this on your favorite podcast app, or you're watching it on YouTube. Hello youtube. We are we're taking the month February offer sort of regrouping, we're we're tidying up a little bit. I got my back Scott to heal. Yes. She's but has to heal. My gut. No, what did I say? Doing a colonoscopy this week. That'll be fun top and bottom anyway enough about my butt and got into Ryan's back where we're taking the month off and doing some healing. But we did record four episodes for our patriotic audience. So I'm want to say, thank you. If you are a patron, the means you're supporter of the show keeps the podcast one hundred percent advertisement free. Thank you so much. We did four episodes of the first one was about happiness and also, depression and anxiety and relationships all of the world's important questions with that one. I don't think you remember at the same. I do. We did get a whole lot more personal what I've realizes I this is sort of like patriot has been away for us to sort of get are rough draft ideas out there workout new materials sort of like a stand up comic like where you go to front of a small room of people, and you try out these little bits. And that's what we're doing right now, we're answering people's questions on the fly were reading articles were picking out dissenting points of view were disagreeing with each other about Marie condos tidying up, which was actually the second episode. We did we did the the life tidying magic of gentrification. We linked up gentrification in tidying up. And I don't really know how to explain it took an hour to really dive into those topics, but it's different from what you might expect also two other episodes, branding and products talk about products that add value, we talk about branding. And why that's a problem or maybe how we can turn it into less of a problem. And so we have a lot of stuff over there on patriot. If you want to join us over there it plays in your regular podcast feed. Or if you went the videos, you can watch those as well just patriotic dot com slash the minimalists, and you can also interact with the entire community of patrons over there.

There were place environment, Egypt, sodas, full of ID's you can easily implement so that you too can be a business that Kay's are you ready? Then let's go in three, two one. Everyone. Thank you for joining us or businesses that care a special series of the mere mortals unite podcast, don't forget to subscribe anywhere including Spotify that you subscribe to podcasts so you won't miss another great episode. I really search all over the world to find people who understand that businesses that truly care about their workforce, create not only a better more engaged workforce, but a more successful business and basically a better world to live in today. My guest is Ryan McCarty and Ryan McCarty with his friend and colleagues. Scott Moorhead wrote a book called build a culture of good. And the reason I. Had Ryan on is not so much that he wrote this book, but the story behind the book I'm gonna. Let Ryan explain it to you because Scott originally hired Ryan to change the business that he already had. And from that came this gold book, which I'll talk about a little more high Ryan. Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to be with me and my audience today. Absolutely Julian. Thank you for having me on. I've been looking forward to this. I love businesses that care. I love this conversation. Thanks for having me on. All right. Let's start with how you met Scott Moorhead. How we real. You win. Right. What my e tell you to get you kidding obscene on here? We can say when we think that channel, no. So listen to us so we could get away with. Yeah, absolutely. Well, I spent the first twenty years in my professional career nonprofit work. So I did everything for ministry as a pastor to missions, work in Africa, and after school programs, and most of my experience was in the nonprofit world and one Sunday morning I get on stage and I'm speaking about your y equaling your way and making sure that you didn't just wake up every day knowing what you had to do as a list of tasks that you knew why you're doing work while you were living like meaningful fulfilling type of life. And unbeknownst to me out in the audience was the CEO of the largest Reisen retailer in the country. Scott Moorhead. I didn't know who he was. He was not normally there, so he didn't really know much about me. His wife actually dragged them to church that morning. She said, there's this crazy pastor guy with tattoos and. And he drinks beer in the as a mole. I had a mohawk at the time and Scott needed to be convinced to show. But that that message resonated with him because he was having a moment in his career in life where he was looking at his business, which is third generation business in in the wireless industry and very favorite phones wireless. Absolutely. But growing exponentially right in in the real risk that we have in terms of growth when we're growing business, as we may lose what makes us special when we first started in Scott, knew that his employees were not showing up to work every day feeling a sense of film it because they sold another phone, right? They were only showing up for paycheck and so he, you know, after service came up to me and said, I need to get this message to all my employees. Let's grab lunch this week. I still in who he was, right. So by the time we. Launch, I know little bit more about him, but then it, you know, I find out he has thousands of employees in over thirty states across the country. In the US and in in he again is very successful to growing business. Hell tell you the story in his mind. He thought Astor's give free advice. I'm just gonna. Bring this pastor out, give him some chips and salsa over lunch Blair vise beer and take this over to my exactly take this to my company. And he said, Ryan, how do we do this? How how can I bring this. Right? Yeah, yeah, exactly. And my response was hire me frail, yeah, I didn't. I had no ambition outside of what I was currently doing. I woke up every day I felt fulfilled and I knew that my work had meaning. And he didn't hire me for several months. It's a longer story, but he had a traumatic brain injury and slipped on a skateboard was lifeline to a hospital in. So the story is it took a traumatic brain injury to hire me, and that's the funny part of it. Not really funny, but it it did take that in and we really embarked on asking how can we engage employee's on a soul level, the kind of work that I had done. I really like that on the front of your book at says, letting your employees bring their soul till worm. I love that. That really resonated with me. Yeah, their whole being right whole being, you know, businesses human endeavor because life is in just because we leave the house and come into a building or work work, doesn't have to be separate from purpose Ryo. In in business doesn't have to be run separate from purpose either. So I had done Larry Martin, yeah. So I've done very purposeful work for over twenty years in the nonprofit sector of business in bringing that soul kind of work into the corporate world is really has been a fascinating thing because I came in not knowing people really do show up just for a paycheck and they don't like their job. They just do it because they have bills to pay in, don't have a sense of meaning and fulfilling type work. And so we really embarked on saying, how do we engage people? How do we scale this to every employee get everyone involved saying, I wanna stop me for a second because I know we're not gonna have enough time. Already our four. I'm going to ask question at some point. I just have this feeling you're going to say, hire me. Exactly. I'd like you to give me a short synopsis and the audience, a short synopsis of when you went into that varieties in conglomerate. Sure. What is it that hit you first and what I'm interested in because we're not gonna know all the steps. Where did you start? And why did you start there. What I did was we started with the backpack giveaway which sounds just like it's a give away a one time event type thing. A lot of companies embark on that, but it was very aligned with the location of where the stores were very localized in created in emotional disruption. So so what we discovered works not through knowing what we were doing is scaled up what I had been doing for over a decade in my small town of giving away twenty five backpacks of first year fifty, a hundred two thousand to giving away sixty thousand backpacks, school supplies across all the states through every employee actively handing a backpack to a child who was really in need of that backpack. So this was a tangible way for people to give back and care. No sales gimmicks. It was not kind of thing. So the people on your stand, you are. Giving a backpack to an employee. You give a backpack for those who don't understand this concept or haven't heard of it filled with school supplies and the employee gives it to a child in need. Is that how it works? Absolutely. We had. We had some stores the first year with the kids with their parents lined up in small rural communities. You know, we had parents walking up with tears, sheriff, frankly, in there is this this was more than just, yeah, we're going to give back, you know, some backpack right? Once in, you know, immediately we knew that we touched the hard soles of the employee's also the communities in customers that they were serving down now they haven't other connector ago. Yeah, it became an emotional disruption met with a very understand this very authentic and done for the right reasons. This wasn't a PR push. Bush remark Ryon pain here by the way, here's a free card for ten percent off your comeback. None of that. None of that, right. You know and it on that from the very beginning, we weren't going to turn this into a gimmick. We're gonna do it for the right reasons. And so the next day I went into Scott's office, we had emails that we couldn't even read without tearing up people employees whose experience on that moment. In that day they gave away sixty thousand backpacks within about thirty minutes across the country. It happened that fast night, you know, we were just in tears at the amount of response. We got back from employees that never been part of anything emotional like that in Scots response was, how can we keep doing this next week and why did you think that would work? I mean, what was it that you saw when you went in there that you thought while they really need this? Yeah. Well, you know, again, I had done a backpack way for over ten years and I saw the impact it had on people. I knew that had an impact on those that were giving in also those that were receiving. And I knew we needed to find a really quick easy way of scaling good across thirty five countries in, you know. So it wasn't like we couldn't be complex, had to be very simple, easy adoptable. It's in a, I think that the word you used in their scaling at because some companies are really small, but when you're really big, like what I d you have has to be scalable. And sometimes that's very difficult. So I just want people to understand that this is a very scalable idea in a pretty easy way. I'm not gonna say it's easy by your. We have done it again in my small town with just a few people, you know. So it's scalable from a few people to over three thousand. Today. Now we've given away this year included. It would be eight hundred, fifty thousand backpacks school supplies, but but what we decided to do as let's not make this one time give away or one off of van. We needed to create a predictable movement around this is so it became quarterly good that took place on grand scale. We called it big good in them. We had our good where every store in department h Hugh is actively involved in giving back in an individual goods. So there was big good. Our good in my good. It was a three tiered appro to giving back in happen. Courter Lii in it was predictable in it wasn't oh, by the way. Next week we have this giveaway or anyone wanna sign up for three months from now. It was what you debt. Yeah, like if it's random good than it's not the DNA of the business and we wanted to build a culture around doing good while as is the phrase in fielding these things into the fabric. Work of the busiest. So it just like everything else you, right? Yeah, it becomes who you are. Right? Not just what you do as a by the way we do some good on the side. Exactly. Who are you are exactly that's what you were talking about before. So what else is there in your toolbox for building culture of good. So we really help businesses now now that we've learned a lot because we're practitioners, not experts going in educated in this field. We really came into it doing the right thing for the right reason. So we have workshops with companies to help them find a cause the lines with the core competency of the business, which is another secret to this, making sure that what you're doing a lines with a good that you do. So what you do is business is accompanied where you're located, your customers who used serve has to all be aligned your employees passions. So. That's a good forty six hour workshop with a company to identify what is there is that worth doing? Because there's a lot of good in it's worth. It's all good is worth doing, but is it going to really is going to make sense to the strategic intent of your business? And that's that's really what we do with companies. And then then we introduce what we've discovered is being five promises that if made over time by individuals, teams in the workers -ation can make a sustainable, cultural movement manageable immeasurable. So this isn't just, let's add some philanthropy into the business. It's what you're saying. How do you weave it into the fabric of your company in those five promises in? I don't know how much time we have to go. Can face them. Yeah, care about care about people in the world around us drive the business to greater success so that we can do more good. Connect with those around us, inspire others to do good with us and be authentic. With our words in actions, they seem very simple Berar not that how my goodness in what's really creative about our approaches, there's observable behaviors that align to each of the surrounding than subjectively Mehan. If you're my customer mind, play in saying, Julianne DO care about people in the world inside their businesses with care, right, right. So that care. But what if what, if I put a list of observable behaviors in front of you and you really have to objectively look and say around getting, I can really measure how much I care, right? So we measure it through a radar graph over time where employees will measure themselves in their team and our organization, we collect that data, it's it's discovering. 'cause that aligns with your. Business in does good in the world. Aligning that with your employees in customers, passions in then introducing the five promises as a new language within a business. How we talk about culture isn't just a, we have a fun culture because we have, you know, being bagged chairs in, you know, on table beer on Fridays, you know on a ping pong table really is these are observable in their fun, but they also there's accountability around it. We say, if you're gonna work for us, it's going to be a place where we care where we drive the business where we connect, where we inspire one another in. We're gonna do it offensively Scott to be genuine in real. That's great. And this is a good time for us to stop for our sponsor.

Okay, Ryan, we're back one of the things that I wanted to talk to you about, and we will have the five promises on in our show notes or people to look at. I did want to mention before I forget that the book they wrote build a culture of good. They'll be a link in the show notes to it as well. But what I really liked about the book is it isn't rainbows and unicorns, well, this is a beautiful culture. It is. This is the mud that we slug through to get a good culture and here the mistakes we made. And here are some of the barriers you'll run up against. And so I find it to be very useful because it's talk about offense. You keep talking about offense ity and I think this this book is an example of being authentic. So I really appreciate that you talked about, you know, 'cause and passion and and before you talked about not just what you do, but why you do it in you and I both know Simon cynic talks about this big. Y all the time, and I talk about it in the trainings. I do too. Would you talk a little bit about his? Everybody has a little different, you know, bent on it the the importance of knowing the why of what we do. Absolutely. You know what we do is a list of tasks that we must get done. Why we do it is a higher sense of purpose. I, it comes from a place that compels us to do something because we know that the result of doing it creates the type of impact in the contribution that we feel a sense of obligation to the the, the why many times becomes I go to work for a paycheck, but we get lost when we're asked why. So I asked employs all the time people all over the world. What do you do for a living? And we have an elevator pitch for that, right. And then I say, but why do you do it in? There's always hesitation and our, why is that greater sense of purpose? So my wide comes from my own pain and tragedy my past, where as. Six years old. My mom was diagnosed paranoid, schizophrenic, and sadly, and tragically committed suicide within the year. My dad was a heroin addict. I had a teacher that I had forgotten about from the age of six to thirty six thirty years later. Walked up to me and introduced herself to me in said Ryan, when your mom committed suicide, I was there at the funeral. They called me. I just want you to. She said those three words, I was there in the classroom. You start crying just wanting to know Ryan. I would be teaching pick you up and let you crime shoulder. And she said Ryan in filled chills right now, saying this in, and I tell the story all the time, but she said, I just wanted to know that I was there. You know, there's a moment in our life that we're gonna look back on. Our life and its legacy. The life we lead is the legacy that we leave in for me, the legacy of teacher that was willing to become more than just a typical teacher Ryan were than one who instructed in a classroom. Why? 'cause she cared right, like something compelled her to do more to be more to give more to sacrifice Moore. That's our why. When we don't know our why we do just enough to get by to get a paycheck or to get through the day or through the week are why is that thing that wakes up earlier keeps us up later, compels us to give more into contribute more as it's are calling. Rang, I think are y also makes us more open to care for others and Maggie impersonal are professional sell. When you're gonna work and you're doing your job and you just want to get. Get out right adults that fifty some odd percent that Gallup calls. The people were unin gauged, and I call him drones and you need drones. I think, you know, you need drones, so I'm not gonna say they're bad people, but when you can have drones that care, you know what I mean? Like I don't think everybody has to be super engaged. I think the idea of when we get to a hundred percent engagement like that's gonna happen. Okay. So some, we don't wanna be a manager. They don't wanna be a supervisor. They wanna be the worker bee. I was one of those in life. I liked being the worker bee. It made me very happy to be the worker bee. So you know, but still knowing your why you're doing it. Really opens you up. I think to caring about the people around you, your colleagues. So I could be a worker bee, and even gallop sees me as disengage, but I'm engaged in what I'm doing and and when I know why I'm doing that and how I feel about it, then I'm open. I'm open to help my colleagues as opposed to just going in a cubicle and staying there right -solutely. But through cubicle job, you can do a maze ING amount of good in the world. This. This'll this'll trivia when Scott hired me the first two years I was in a cubicle are, yeah. So you now where you are, it's what you're doing in the why you're doing it. That's what you got on the inside as it's your purpose right at your calling. I like to say that we find are calling when our greatest passion collide with our greatest contribution to make the world better. Doing this podcast, you got it because this is your contribution and your passionate about, and this is my labor of love. Exactly magin if every employee or most employees are a lot of the employees woke up everyday knew why they were going to work and they felt passionate about the work not because of their what because of their, why they were able to see their contribution in their productivity, made the world better place, regardless of whether they worked in finance or not, or marketing, everyone can contribute to this good if the cause aligns with the business. That's why it's crucial. Yeah, an I one of the my focuses on businesses that care is talking to in a cease wheat leaders who understand that creating a culture that people can care about, which means, you know, I talk about purpose online, what by the way and people knowing their purpose in how important is that people know their purpose, not in. In the individual motions are taking every day, but at the end result, so sometimes I use a realtor, you're not just filling out paperwork and showing homes. You're giving someone new place to make memories like that's totally different. Right? But that's good example, and I don't care what kind of business you've had. 'cause I'm very happy to say. I've talked to tons of different kinds of industry from landscaping to movers to technology to real estate to now phones. Yeah, and no matter what they are when they build a great culture, everyone in the company understands what the greater good is. What are they doing. And you feel like you're part of something bigger than yourself in when you see your peers carrying it becomes so much easier for you to care. Nobody wakes up in the morning and says, I really want to be disengaged with where I'm gonna spend the next eight or nine hour ride, I guess, routed article that said, I'm pretty sure people don't get up in spend their days going. I wanna be stagnant. You don't want to run anymore in the future. I don't wanna be were thinking to say, yeah, exactly. I don't wanna grow. I don't want to contribute. I'd really prefer to be miserable. Hope. I get a paycheck at the end of the nobody. I've not met one person that really is like that. And so it really falls on the organization in the company and the leadership to say, m. I giving, are we giving each implied permission to care for mission to bring their soul to work? You know, we used to have like bring your kid to work day and bring an animal to bring. Your soul to work every day. Finger ways to bring that. Yeah, absolutely. Sold the work every day. I like that. So that's really, that's really what we want to see his companies all across the world that relate to the culture of good message more than just theory or philosophy, but want to say, how do we build a gold? You're good in our business in what is available for us to really begin that work. It takes work, right? It's not butterflies in, I forget what you said earlier coins and unit classes, rainbows. I had a better flies into the mat. It will be by the time event talking about done. It takes work. It is work and and I'm sure you feel the same way. I mean, I need to work with a company that understands its work and there's no end it sound like, okay, we'll do this for three months. No, you're building something that will last forever. And I always say only if you wanna be successful. Cloture cultures moving all the time. And honestly, you're building culture whether you're intentional about it or not. Right. It may not letting culture by. Exactly. And we always say there's no such thing as perfect culture, but years doesn't have to suck in all. In all my idea. Right. Last language. That just puts it right out there, but it's true. It's absolutely true and you and I both now that a lot of times changing culture to be a culture of good, moving in a direction does not take a lot of money. It takes a lot of brain compassion and dedication and deliberateness if that's a word, but being deliberate is really important. It doesn't take a lot of money, but it has profound impact on the results within a business. Absolutely is one of the greatest business differentiator opportunities, but it can also be greatest risk and risk to take. I think while the risk is not taken it right of car, that's the greatest risk is not being intentional. It's what you said. You end up with the culture that is actually does the opposite. This engages. So we wanna see employees show up. The word excited about their their work in their live customers engaged with more than just in exchange, or you know, you know that really are connected the cultures. Well, and then the community in the world that they're serving that businesses serving that it's making the world better place. That's what we want to see happen before I let you go. I'm interested in in the answer to this question. So before you went to Scotts company? Yeah. And the difference now, what's happened to his retention? Right. It's his retention is has gotten better by twenty percent it saving his business. Now it's retail, right? Stating his business, five point, eight million dollars a year just in turnover. It's sad that that's big. That's one of three aspects, you know, recruiting. Good talent, retaining good talent and customer loyalty. And those are the three parts that I see are highly enhanced by having a great culture for business owner. That says, while I don't really care much about culture, but then you talk to they care about employee retention in a hurry to recruiting the right kind of talent they care about the customer loyalty. Yeah, and I'm like, okay, well, you just described what culture does. Apparently you do care alkyl triggers it out now at, yeah, even I'll go out into the world and convinced more people that, you know, this is a great idea. And I really do believe that every company that believes in creating good culture and creates better humans in their workforce creates a better world than I'm a pebble in upon kinda girl. So. Yeah, but you can make some big ripples. Right? That's some big change, take place in sight butterfly effect, and we get it again today. So thank you Ryan so much for joining us today.

But if you're going to build them with Allah g he's got some of the biggest hands in the NBA. Nobody wants to be guarded by him because of what he can do on the perimeter with those hands, and they're calling his sneaker, the claw the claw with a K. It's the only time I've seen LeBron James actually scared. Many of you might think he was scared when he couldn't post up JJ Berea and at the end of that game when he passed the ball a lot of times a thousand times in the last five minutes the other time I've seen him scared during the finals at the height of his powers is when he was at the free throw line turned over his shoulder and saw the Leonard was checking back into the game and started cursing to himself. That's about the highest compliment. You can give is not. Yeah. That's that's probably the highest compliment disco is say anything during this commercial while they just put out a press release yesterday announcing formerly the long rumored endorsement deal with new balance and Kawai was quoted in the statement. His quote game speaks for itself. And that's the way you gotta go with him. If you're creating a marketing strategy around him now, speaking of marketing, the other conversation, I wanted to talk to you guys about is Darren Revell Darren rebel is saying that the alliance a f- the new football league wasn't willing to. Offer Colin Kaepernick, the kind of money that his demands suggested. The reports were twenty million dollars. Darren reveal is saying it was more than that than Colin Kaepernick was asking for. And I will ask you guys. I think he'd be worth a lot in terms of advertising for your league. If somebody were to sign him he should be asking for a lot there. If you're going to ask me to compromise the principles that mean collusion case against the NFL and the idea that I've clearly been literally blackballed. What's that worth is what I wanted to ask you guys like never mind. I don't want to have the capper Nic conversation. But I do want to ask you what is it worth? When you got your big ratings almost three million people I night because you're just tied to wrestling. It's how the XFL started and slowly over the course of that game Saturday night, the ratings disappeared and slowly for the XFL maybe quickly for the XFL the ratings disappeared. They started five times as hot as the af. So I'm asking you guys this question. What do you pay capper, Nick if you are starting league just so that you could get that same buzz that Nike wanted that same? Oh, we're edgy. But it's not really edgy. Everyone's tired of this conversation, largely, you know, this isn't actually edgy. But here we're going to get a burst of publicity. What's it worth? Man. Is it worth north of twenty million dollars? It is for cabinet, right? Cabernet joined to do that. If he's going to to make a big show of going. I wanna play football some well somewhere, but the NFL doesn't give me real freedom. If he wants to make show, and then turn that into his platform. The af where he's the signature player in the league that doesn't have stars of any kind. Right, Trent Richardson's, the biggest name the coaches. I guess have some coaches of the biggest stars. Yeah. Christian hackenberg. I guess, you know, a guy who was close to winning a Super Bowl close to getting to another Super Bowl. I think many people feel he's still play the NFL. He'd be like a top fifteen quarterback in in the NFL on men. Yeah. That's that's worth a lot. I'd certainly him. Asking for north of twenty million dollars is not ridiculous. I want to ask this question. If you are Oliver luck being paid twenty million dollars, hold the XFL. It's not I don't think it is. It's absolutely ridiculous making what he made in the NFL. I now, but this is a league with a startup league. But this is a league that is desperate to get a superstar to get a star played in the league. It's explosion hackenberg super absurd for him. Like, they don't have that kind of money. You don't know that this is also league all the players base salaries two hundred and fifty thousand dollars come on. And it's not guaranteed. Colin kaepernick. Look, look, you don't this is not taking a side on the capture Nick thing. Oh, be careful about that. We don't want to do Capri talk. We do not want to capture Nic talk. Everybody was doing it for a long time. Everybody got crazy. And we all ran in different directions to here, not doing camper, Nick talk. That's not what we're doing. We're not doing rights talk. That's not what we're doing. We would not do that. No, no, man. We wouldn't do it. But we're not doing it topic. Nope. I'm not even saying the name but quarterback wants to make twenty million dollars when the rest of the league is making a hundred and fifty thousand absolutely absurd. You get that quarterback you win. Whatever their championship game is right. Oh, no. No. Yes. You that? It's Gary watch Gilbert. Did you watch the Orlando Apollo's? No, I have a tough tough team to beat Mike. How many people would tune in just to see because they have more violent hits on the quarterback? Colin Kaepernick getting lit up rooting rooting for. You know, you'll you'll draw the fans who are rooting against Bella check against Brady against Nick Sabin Floyd Mayweather, you're the people who root against them. We'll route to see Colin Kaepernick destroyed by one of those giant head. I mean, it's a testament of like what social media is. Because you'd think that the quarterbacks are getting hit more, and there's just like one person in the corner saying they can actually only send five guy. I know. But that one guy lost his helmet. And if Tom Brady were hit like that the national guard. Would have flown into change the rule. The contracts are three year contracts for two hundred fifty thousand dollars so he'd make essentially three hundred times whatever players making in his locker room. So what is the number though, I understand taking sides on this. I understand only the money. We're not talking about the mud lock right issue, and you making three hundred times, but everyone else is making winning him making twenty million dollars would be the most locker room divisive thing and in his career. Donlevatar mummy. Do you think this me up still gots don't do y'all? And as poet Kennedy. Visit our show with stow God's on ESPN radio an egg on Twitter named Darby Watson writes in drop the capture Nick talk. He's a has been and a won't be again. It's not even worth the two hundred and fifty guaranteed K of the F. Get they show. You are. So right Darby. We need to stop talking about the tired. Tired topics in sports. You caught us. You're correct on everything you said, we need to talk and we're behind today because I take his way ahead of us on this. They've been doing it for thirteen minutes. They've got Isaiah Thomas. The story of the day is who's better LeBron or MJ now Scottie Pippen commented on this the other day, and he's had a lot of conflicting viewpoints over the years. But I know Mike Ryan, what do you who you calling? We need to mobilize the forces that I didn't realize that this is a LeBron who's better MJ day. I'm sorry for starting with copper, Nick, you're so right about this might try to sneak in some Tibo, that's the first take formula. But I think they are way ahead of us here. Mike they've been talking for fifteen minutes about who's better MJ. Lebron right? But in case you want to go to Scottie Pippen's take on the matter via e ski to got it from four the win. There is a timeline on how much Scotty. Pippen. It's changed his opinion on this topic. Would you like to know I just want to hear sound of Scottie Pippen contradicting himself because at this point Scottie Pippen is no longer. In fact, put this on the poll game at lebatardshow, what is Scottie Pippen, top fifty basketball player of all time or guy who will give you contradicting opinions over the last ten years, Michael Jordan on here's his most recent take on on the matter. And then I'll give you the time on a how he's flip lot in terms of statistics the Broncos right there. And when you look across the board not just scoring check. This check his rebounds. He's probably Jordan. That's right. Talking. Okay. Now, another sound what I look at LeBron. He's not what Michael was as a player. He's not even what Kobe Bryant was. Oh. Or those people applauding. Those two opinions. Can't really coexist. Well, yes, they get. Well, they have for a while. Because in may of two thousand seventeen Scottie Pippen said LeBron hasn't even surpass Kobe in December twenty seventeen Scottie Pippen said LeBron probably head of Michael Jordan. So this could mean that he has Koby number one overall who knows week later. Lebron needs six rings to surpass Michael Jordan a week later MJ over LeBrun definitively may of twenty eight teen it's unfair to compare LeBron and Michael Jordan is unfair. It is unfair. Yes. And February of two thousand nineteen abroad was not what MJ was as a player or Kobe. All right. So now, you have all the information. We pride ourselves on giving you all of the data. And my question to you is this given that we've given you this much data. What the hell the Scottie Pippen thing? Please put it on the poll at lebatardshow at. Just that. Yes. Or no, what the hell does Scottie Pippen think about this? I think where he said this stuff is a very big deal. I think we need to look into this. I think he'll say the thing that makes him popular in the city that he's speaking in. I'm serious about this. I think if he's in Chicago, then it'll tell you that Jordan's better. But if he's anywhere that LeBron's by applying. He might go by thank he he's more. He's more from the stugatz school of fraud casting where he just says whatever he wants that moment and takes no inventory whatsoever of what he said before consistency is not a real passion on this particular subject. I understand. But I take inventory of whom I'm speaking to I do I do that occasionally, you know, like, so if I was at Chicago public speaking, and that would be funny me, public speaking. I would absolutely say Jordan is the best. But if I was in L A, I'd probably say Coby so Bob Ryan is going to join us here because we're behind and he's a basketball thority, and we need to catch up on who's who's better. Lebron or MJ? And so he'll join us in a second. But I need to update a couple of things here. First of all gear. Mom, and this speaks to what an idiot. You are. Yeah. Just I take sitting here talking about the topic of the day. And what are you wearing me out with this big foot and alien excursion thing you got a hold of consent. Go you said there's an update here. And you're missing the big story of the day because you're concentrating on the nonsense. So where are we with this? All right. So here's what's happening with Jose Canseco. So we reached out to that number Morgan a couple of days ago didn't hear back yesterday. Morgan got back in contact with us and told us this is the deal for Jose, Canseco, Jose Canseco will choose five lucky people and even compared it to Willie Wonka balloon and all this stuff. And this is how it works. You have to pay five thousand dollars to be one of these five people, and then they'll put you on an RV with Jose, this leaves out of Las Vegas, and then they're gonna drive this. RV to what was described as a big foot habitat where you will see very likely a big foot and you'll get a tour of aliens. Now, we said hold on a second because we kind of need a camera for this payoff to work out. So how can we arrange following the RV with a camera crew? And they said because of the fact that it's a very secret location, and it's a big foot habitat that nobody knows about their kind of uncomfortable with a camera following the RV. However, however, they're opening up blind bidding to let a TV crew follow this once in a lifetime experience. We gotta get in on this. We gotta get on this. We're gonna blow the budget right here. We gotta get you on that RV. No matter the call. They also made it very clear for some reason to say that Jose can take a really doesn't want anyone to bring weapons now you need to give them half of the money upfront in cash, and then the day of you have to give them the rest of the money in cash. Which is not shady at all. We do that. We'll give him all the money in up front in cash. We need to we need to be winning this. What happens if you don't see Bigfoot or an alien any money battles and stop at that stupid. Just shut up shut up. That's not one of the possibilities. Kansas of is. He doesn't up as big. That that's absolutely happening. That's really why I'm super interested in this. Because I want to see what it is. That's passed off as a big foot habitat and Bigfoot the desert of Nevada always known as a hotbed for Bigfoot activity is included in case that was a conservative anyone romaine the desert Porsche some executives around, and we need to be at the top of the bidding on this also Mike where are we this nightclub owner grunt men gave approval on the the restaurant reservations down. When are we playing that to me are playing that in the eleven o'clock hour, Dan? Oh, all right. So that's coming up soon. Here. We got the okay, Stu gods? Threatened grat men. The live owner said Coby Coby was noon yesterday. His Kobi is five AM every night. So he did give us the clearance. Donlevatar? They'll never wanna championship. Not good enough. Doesn't have the clutch. Stugatz. Why do you keep doing that? These days they live at our show. With this Stu guys on ESPN radio. Now clearly were behind on this story. I take his way out in front on it. Okay. They started their show thirteen straight minutes of who's better LeBron James or Michael Jordan. So we've called in our maximum effort. Our maximum expert. This is the guy knows more about basketball than anyone around here. And we will get to the important topic of the day with him. But I we've gotta do because it just takes precedent around here. It's hard to explain, but we just have to do. Explain your tweets with Bob Ryan, Mike Ryan claims. He's the best guest in show history. Bought Ryan's been doing it across decades. He was carrying Tony Kornheiser for years as a guest and now he's carrying us as a guest. Let's start with explain your tweets, but we've got to at some point here. Get quickly to the the discussion we're already behind on that. I take is dominated this morning. You have some sledding do. Nine today. Three. He the best Ballo on Twitter at globe. Bob, bryan. From fifty five to sixty nine Bill. Russell played for sixty championships. USF Olympic Celtics. He won fourteen. It was hurt and fifty eight sixty seven was only legit laws greatest documented winter ever. This is true. I think this is the most self explanatory tweet imaginable. And I don't think enough young understand the scope of what he get into time. He did it the issue is whether or not he could come in and dominate today. The issue for everyone is what you do in the time and place that you were placed and in the time and place. He was placed he was by far the most dominant player and most dominant winter. And and in the history of American sports. No one is even come close to matching that resume. I would say though, I would argue that given the difficulties of the sport that Tom Brady is getting into that conversation, given how everything is chain. He's getting he's getting closer to that conversation. You doesn't have to win eleven to be the same up. I think fair, and I will listen to that argument. And I leave me I'll make the case that that showing up for nine Super Bowls is just an unimaginable thing in this day and age, and the fact that they've done it at eastern it with all these different teammates. The thing they share in common, Dan, as the fact that they both performed in Boston or in Boston area is that of they Russell over a period of thirteen years. Had no teammates left. Not even a coach nothing left from when he started. He was the sole the connecting thread and Brady, of course, is only got no teammates remotely around that make the time. He's coach he's played. But he does of course, have the same coach at the only difference. There is the dog lovers Super Bowl it. Does it need controversy? Yes. We had a thing with this week at Westminster in which of a dog that won. A breed skipper g was not quote. It was ineligible for the final best in show competition because of a conflict of interest of judge that was done business, or, you know, connected with one of the owner of the the skipper Jay now. This is something that should have been voided. And then they had a worse controversy. Oh, I think in the end, and when the of winning the judge selected the FOX terrier, and a judge it turns out that the guy who not only knew the owner of the small world, I understand that. But he's known to be a FOX terrier guy was a FOX terrier connection. So a my question at the end of this was is there world so small and insular that such conflicts are unavoidable. They couldn't find enough people that would be free of any perceived conflict of interest in their Super Bowl. And this is a big deal. This is the oldest second oldest sporting. Competition in America, second only guess to the America's Cup. I digging this is worthy of Ted wells investigation. Bob. Well, you know, it's I he's probably got a lot on his plate. But you know, and in the end if I said, if they don't wanna find anybody, I'll volunteer I'll judge next year. No problem on the movie best in show, an all-time movie. Oh my God. Let me they came up. And of course, in the conversation into fall out of the Westminster people on Twitter, say just go have a lap and watch best of show to which I say to everybody. Yes. If you haven't seen best in show is one of the funniest grade. Put it on the poll. Guillermo lebatardshow is best in show. One of the best of the funniest movies in comedy because I agree with it. I want to hear more about Bob being judged. Most people would pick either a golden retriever or a lad, that's why we need an open non conflicted mind as best in show. Judge like me. Yeah. Well, that's true. Because they are the dogs of choice for most people that more people have a are either have or are glove a. When spinning out Bob spit it out. When I grow up in the fifties. It was a cocker spaniel. Now, it's golden retriever or labs. They are the dogs of choice oaken deny that. Somewhere along the way palm ING became according to PA announcers, a dribbling violation you may call it carrying, but it's Pommie and this happened because I was watching a game of our gut called performing against the Lakers. And and then now they're calling discontinued dribble. Well, when I grew up it was palming. And and and I said what they should really call us. I owning because Alan Iverson's, the one who who completely put bombing as a legitimate thing that nobody even questions anymore, and you know, I it's very very rare to see it. But that's just an old fart thing. I do you know, I mean once in a while about showing people that were language has changed, but the print the crime remains the same act. Well, Bob Ryan on Twitter as who's better pistol, Peter James harden, and Bob you tweeted peed had sixty eight and NS g without a three. This is true. And it's an interesting. I don't know why somebody decided to make that compound. You know that was the question, but, but it's hard and hardens the flavor of the moment. But harden as great as he is. And I respect what he's doing. And I respect his talent will never be the folk hero that pistol was possible on refusing the making Super Bowl prediction on around the horn. I will never apologize for not making a big the only pig worth anything is one backed by your wallet. Really what difference? Does it make? I said this thirty years I used to hate it. When with the paper would make you do predictions preseason or zip whether Super Bowl whenever I hate prediction. So worthless. The only predictions that a worth anything or those when you back up with your wallet. When you put your money down. That's a that's that matters. Otherwise, I don't care what you think. And I don't care what it play the game. That's it's not the idea is the idea Billy do you have any objections? Anything you love to wrestle with Bob. Ryan disrespectfully. Do you have anything left with only got thirty seconds left in the segment here, here's something. I'd put my money behind Bob. They should allow Matz in the dog show. Well, we can have that discussion. Yes. The dog. So that would be great. Wouldn't it? Does that the mutt? The mud. Yes. Absolutely. I it's you know, it's a bit too. Think about good good. Good. Call Billy Cashmore of the donlevatar show with. Stugatz. Ten to one eastern on ESPN radio on ESPN news to God's ears. Nice to have a helping hand especially when it's act season. And that hand is attached away licensed tax professional, but turbo tax live.

Tax live would CPA's in e as on demands he details at turbo tax dot com. On the subject of Michael Jordan versus LeBron James. I have adopted a very classic have my take in heated to position. It is followed the Broncos aims speaker stronger faster, even and capable of guarding every position from the point guard to a seven foot center, he is a magnificent basketball player, and and probably the best individual to us. Oh who has ever played this game? However, Michael Jordan who was the man in question before the Lord LeBron Jordan for that honor is the most ruthless competitor ever among position players who handle the basketball centers have to wait. There's someone else who initiate the action. But among people who initiate the action by having the ball in their hands. Nobody was more ruthless than Michael Jordan. Therefore, if I were playing for my life. I would want to have Michael Jeffrey Jordan, but I would rather watch LeBron James play. So there. That's port center brought to you by vivid seats, it's easy to find awesome seats, any games. Go to the app store or Google play and download the app and at that promo code jams at checkout to get ten percent off your first order, go by any seat, get a vivid seat. I feel like that is the final word on this discussion. We don't need to talk about it anymore ever. Again. Bob Ryan has nailed the disc bound by simply calling him. Lebron jordan. I think that from now on we could just do it at that way. And it'll be fine in end the discussion are you more inclined to listen to someone when they say Michael Jeffrey, Jordan because I am. Oh, yes. Move up. Put it on the poll, are you more inclined to listen to somebody when they say Michael Jeffrey Jordan's, just like New York football giants. Okay. I have to listen to what you have to say. A couple of things here that I wanted to get to in this hour. You will hear the restaurant reservation? Stugatz. I don't know. Whether he made it successfully didn't make it successfully. I don't know anything about this other than every year. Stugatz. Makes my skin crawl physically. It leaves my body and leaves the studio disgusted not wanting to be close to any of his shameless badgering of employee's with lies so Mike. What time are we gonna play that? Because we've gotten the approval from the live nightclub owner that we needed. So don't dismiss the great, David. Grunt man. Short hair, not just live story and several other nightclubs before the ultimate success of live, which was the hottest and still is the hottest nightclub in America. I think where we aired here is the fact that we were asking him during daylight hours. That's the problem we were seeking approval on this. Yes, we were runs only awake from midnight to six s right? Just like Patino. So Mike when are we going to play that Stu eleven thirty AM eastern tunnel boy calendars one and a half hour from now the restaurant reservation, we should have brought you yesterday. Speaking of Stu gods to potty again is the number one, podcast and sports and recreation. He had a surprise guest appearance by Kenny, gee, I saw that Kim Kardashian sent out what you got for free. Kanye was got Kenny G in a room full of roses to be serenading her with his sex and Stu gods. Got that for free on stupidity and you can live like a Kardashian on stupidity. If you downloaded subscribe rate and review immediately. And also thank you to all of you have made me kind number two. Yes. Because you are a powerhouse army, and the people have spoken you very clearly hate south each session. Where's that? Right. Track. Two has bringing up the rear ten ship of the Levin. Tarred and friends network is the friends carrying the bloated corpse of lebatardshow around well past his prime interviewing people just sort of bullying, the guests into being interesting bringing up the rear with winded breath stupidity. What happened with Kenny G though, you saw this right? Kenny G, Mike. Are we going to get him on the show? Explain what happened how Konya west hired him to just wander around a room full of roses for Kim Kardashian. He tried to steal the cost a lot. Stugatz might have gotten the bargain of the century on stupidity where he serenaded his wife with Kenny G for free just calling him. And how much do you think Kanye west paid for all I can't even imagine? I mean, obviously, I didn't have Kenny G in my house in my living room doing it. But I don't care. I didn't pay anything, and I wouldn't pay for that. I mean, it's getting to come through it for you want us to reach out to Kenny. I kinda a little worried we'd been leaning on him a little too much resilient is very stugatz of us. But he doesn't seem to object. You're right. We are leaning on him a lot, but we also helped him a little bit in this regard. We thought Kenny G was a joke to like we thought. Oh, Kenny G soft music. And then he started come home with us. And we all fell in love with him. Are we hundred percent certain that Kim didn't do it for? Anyway, because it just said Kenny g's in our house. And would it be weird for Kim to set a thousands of roses for Connie on Valentine's Day 'cause when the cameras one over to kinda he was so happy to see Kenny. Gee, I felt it was Konya doing that for Kenya. As is everything in life. I don't think that Kim Kardashian had anything to do with it. I think Konya wanted to treat himself to some Kenny. He did it for all of us. Also because I was incredible. If Konya finds out he did it for free on the phone granted, not my house. Do you think he's going to be upset with Kenny G because I'm worried about that for people that don't know they set up like almost like it looked like a thousand single roses in a room. You'd think they set the roses up first, and then Kenny G like no his way in or did he start there? And then they put all we have to talk to him. You guys have watching tire video clearly when the cameras swings over you see that there is a path. More Kenny, gee, I really just when they shoot it from the other side of the room, it looks as though he'd just been standing there prone as they set up all these individual roses in stemware. Well that does answer the question. So now, we don't need to talk to Kenny g's takes away a little bit from it to actually. It does it cheapens it for you. Yeah. I need no walkway. And I need to be able to wonder how do you get in here? Just figuring it out. I'm with you like a maze. Yes. The the walkway was a bit of an architectural wonder, it wasn't just a straight line. There was some curvature to it in an actually made the whole thing. Look even nicer trust me on that. But it cognac set up all the roses or did he pay paid someone to do it? Right. Oh, dude Khan, they took their Instagram video when they left the room now everybody knows islands are better than pladillas. Everybody put that on the pole Guillermo at lebatardshow does everyone know that islands are better than peninsulas. Do we have that sound of Bob Ryan, sometimes when he gets very excited Stu guts what happens to Bob Ryan. And look, and I've told you before we were in Jacksonville for the Super Bowl, I was profoundly sad. Because of how we were covering the sport in a city that didn't smell very good at the time. And I was just we were covering the sport the way, everyone was covering the sport. And in the middle of this Bob Ryan who loves sports more than anyone. I've ever known. Bob Ryan wanders off to a Jacksonville college basketball game because he just wanted to be around sports. But sometimes he gets so excited that the thoughts come out something like this and in. Totally understand. I know who does understand back there. I know Billy. I saw your soulmate Brian. I saw you look when he started stumbling around on the floor getting caught in his own words. I know that you started gazing at him longingly. It's been a long week for that. Because Greg one of those moments also this, okay? But no one's had the moment that Billy had again. This was his big chance to rip old money executive Charlie Hume who is just unconscious, by the way, just wandering around shaking hands with everybody trying to climb in the business. Jim gray meets him and says how is Israel, Charlie. It's just all foul all grace has graces take a picture of me. Charlie. Let send it to grandpa. It's unbelievable Charlie is going to be running ESPN soon. And it's going to be awful for everybody. Because all he cares about his meeting famous people and shaking hands with them. So Billy had his big moment to take out Charlie on the air. And this is what it sounded like well, Charlie sent Charlie had this Charlie as far as I know. Just Charlie's title in my. Is anyone ever going to beat that? Because ROY challenged your earlier this week. But the Bob Ryan, Mike, I heard it as being longer than that. So the Bob Ryan ended up disappointing me on second hearing because I thought he stammered a great deal more than this. You know, we can't play anything after we play Billy tripping over Charlie. Let's let's just play that. We can't do anything out than that. It's over. Well, Charlie sent Charlie had this Charlie as far as I know. So just Charlie's title, stay. Stay look, man. This is what the funniest part of that is. And it's the spoken part. Billy went home and thought I cut him off thought him thought I unfairly I was cut off. All told told his fiancee that he was just getting rolling. And I ended his rugby Charlie sent Charlie had this Charlie as far as I know. So just Charlie's title a money. You're going to stay. Do not them off sooner. I played it. I'm like when he got to the third one. I'm like can't go amidst. Any he's been and I'm like, I underestimated him. No. He can I wonder if he might have gone five Charlie sent Charlie had this Charlie as far as I know. So just Charlie's title gonna stay on. Donlevatar? How do you feel texture right now? Like, you fired off that text making fun of me. What's a wheelbarrow? Dan, make fun of me because you were going to catch me with the word slippage. And now, I've turned it around on you, and you've been doing something wrong your entire life. Texter? Stugatz. Like, you pounced on me there. I'm gonna show, Dan. And now looking that mirrors their what's looking back at you. As a cackling me, you pounced on my ignorance, and I ignore is yours DC's live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio before we get to Kenny G who apparently has been made available. So we will get to him. We have to play. What we think is the most disgusting thing we do around here. I have vomited on air, Billy, eight an onion. They're eight an onion raw vomited Pablo Tori, eight pig's feet. We believe that what you're about to hear is the most disgusting thing we do. It's still. Goncz always getting a restaurant reservation. Come on. Whom is being Cindy, oh, hasten, the how are you? I'm doing well mobile. You can help me out a bit of jam here. Maybe you can help me get out of it. If possible. I I love the restaurant, and as, you know, the big day's coming Valentine's Day, and my wife, and I we went there for first Valentine's Day, we love Komodo, and we want to go. And now it's fifteenth time flies when you're having fun and now fifteen Valentine's Day, and we want to go back again. And I know it's a little bit late in the process here. But I'm thinking, maybe you can help us out with a reservation on Valentine's only it was up to me. I would put you in. But we're really committed for that day for dinner service.

And so I know the owners well, plus, listen, here's the thing. I could do for you that no one else could do just just hear me out.

They can do it for the daytime for him. So sorry. What you told me in the Email? Pretty sure corner you could just kinda stick me or maybe stick someone else's not nearly as important that corner.

I believe STAN STAN, I believe Scott van pelt this music, Mike that you are playing. I think that Scott van pelt would be about what's happening this weekend in Miami that your so excited about that involves this particular song from a different time three points got to gyp shin lover on the Bill. And didn't you say there's a room where just this will be playing the boiler room van pelt? Is this your jam from from from Maryland as right here like with this get this get Scott van pelt to do the running man back when he was at the university of Maryland lovers definitely in the rotation. Recep great music, and I'm sitting here. And I'm listening to you all chuckling through the update and like Zenit ships and lovers. So. Yeah. We ruined. Where the goes up to up to you guys again. That's a good one. I'm wondering what else would be in that group. Right. We can have that conversation for a while guys in their forties. Like when they hearken back to a musical time. When they didn't know what they were doing, but it was kind of magical. I'll drop the line right now you online. Yes, go. Let's go live. Scott van pelt? We have him on actually shame this golfer that I I to know what Scott's opinion is on this. My guess is Scott is going to side with coup cheer that would be my guess because now saying that they had an arrangement prior to that event in Mexico where it's all the guy. Hey five thousand dollars for the week. What are your thoughts here Scott van pelt because we've been thinking about what we've been trying to send the stugotz army the way of Matt Kuchar because he got one point three million dollars for winning that tournament and only gave his caddy five grand. What are your thoughts? There. You you gotta do better than that. Now. Now, here's the thing. I I've talked to a bunch of players and some caddies about this. The there are caddies and players that that have this type of range might you say, hey, here's the number for the week. It's X for this. And it's whatever like, but you can't you can't like maybe you want to cap it at something crazy like, hey, if we have a great week, and we win give you whatever but five can't be your ceiling, and you can't play the one. Here's this caddy in Mexico, and he doesn't make a lot of money. Anyway, this is pretty good Wiki. Can't you just can't go down that road? And I I'm a guy to me to be accused of being a anything other than a generous Tipper, particularly when a generous tip is has been earned is is something that I am. I recoil at that. I would never wanna be that guy. So in this case, even if you have an arrangement you just do what's right? And you say, hey, listen, I said, I was going to give you five I'm gonna give you seventy five I'm gonna. Fifty whatever you think is okay now for the caddy turnaround. Sam supposed to get the ten percent. Like, if you had a deal, you know, that that that hard and fast idea, you get ten percent of a win that that's maybe that's sort of an old say wives tale, but as purses grew a lot of caddies players sort of had their understandings of what we would you know, what bonuses would be tied to win. But this guy's a one off just just giving give him give him something far beyond five and move on with your life. So I signed with the catty closer to the cat in the play. There's there's a middle room that they needed a middle ground at that. They needed to get to that. They haven't gotten to shipping container help me out here because I'd like to put together a rankings at ESPN. He's talking about doing the right thing. Like in terms of people at has because we can be polarizing the gas bags, but then pelts one of the likable guys. It's Kirk Shan. It's more like the decency rankings when he's crushing you. Okay. You're a turt-. And so and so so. Tator wears gotten in pelt on the on the rankings in terms of just fundamentally decent people at he is behind. I mean, I got him like right behind Kirk. I can't put on a head of Kirk. He knows that. He understands me. I I have Tim I have Linda Cohn. I have Bob Lee. And then maybe s. What I'm way I'm away. I'm with of oddly, Linda, way way above and it's true. I was just going to say that Bob he can be prickly. He can be don't tell don't tell him. I think you're on it with more more, certainly a tough more and more also beats I think he more interest in terms of being decent. Randy, Scott, sneaky kind. But I I haven't this is not internal info. I think I've seen something in terms of q scores. Scott van pelt is the top. Okay. So what's the right amount? Scott don't do. And you just did it. Right. You got sign number of. Well, they came back with an extra fifteen thousand dollars. They upped twenty thousand. That's not enough. What okay as the fundamentally decent guidance and conscience of this company. One is that split split the difference? It would have been one thirty for the win. And you said you're paying him five for the weeks that would have put just so it you should be at seventy but make it more to say seventy five and we move. On made a ton of money. And he was just saying Kuchis have good guy. He's he's he's a decent and great family. Well, like this is just a fumble. This is is a three putt put it in a horrible pun here. He's just he missed the marketer. Give the guy seventy five grand call it a day. And that's and that's highly fair, especially if you went into the week with an agreement just seventy five nothing for coach to write the check just Senate seventy five and you're wanting to divest of it. It's not as normal caddy's, Scott. So what if what if I present you with this scenario where Kuchar won the tournament, despite the caddy meeting, the caddy's, don't you two hundred out? Here's an eight iron and coaches go and I can't hit to right? And he had so coocher pulling out the club's not the Gaddi with and this is done now that stugotz, that's an entirely fair and reasonable discussion to have because maybe he won if spite of the fact that he's getting the wrong numbers guys degrees. He says it breaks left and right at the end of the week in the guy was. Castrophe? But he wanted to fight him. That's the part. We don't know. And we do this where we wanna shame. Shame. Shame. I'm just so here's the thing at the end of it to write a guy that check for that number. I it doesn't dent his his his, you know, ability to go to the ATM and withdrawal hundred you know, fine. Just just carry on. You know, it's it's a problem. It's to rate like everybody's decided he's cheap bastard, and they're gonna end, and that's what they've decided so him writing that number now doesn't buy that back. See what I'm saying? Put it on the scrolls. Scott van pelt calls coacher, cheap bastard. Like, that's what it sounded. Like, you are the responsible guy, you're clean here. We're the ones in the sewage. How do we bury this guy out? How do we bury the cheap bastard like by creating so much public pressure that he can't stand it anymore? And he has the help the poor caddy aims co-chairman. He'll he'll probably I mean, I don't know if it's too late. But I. Saying that that's the public perception your you're feeling that trying to use me saying that I said, and that's not gonna work. But there's you you've done your part. You've you you, you know throughout the bat signal here. I am telling you I'm giving a guy number like to me. That's that's a reasonable buyout. I ask you lebatardshow. The man of rolling in the sewage is if he writes that number we good can you say he did. What was right and you move on to your next target or call him only after being shamed. Correctly by Scott van pelt a public forum. Did he in the strength to actually say what what a dip bleep by an achiever one to boot even VIN pelt is going after me on the radio. Can I ask a question that would be much? Do I have twenty seconds to ask a question or some gyp shin lover you get one one of one of their would ask the question as a Logan this'll be better for the local hour. But as as terrorist who comes up to to to south beach rarely how do I get out of south beach without? Having to take fifty minutes to get five blocks to merge onto all road. You can't you can't go. That's my day ever travel by. Yeah. That's it out there helicopter submarine as it's very crowded. I thought about the the the copper, but I mean, I've need Kucher money to do that. And I have to. Thank you, Scott. We appreciate it. We're gonna send your weekend. Dancing, shake those hips. Hell you. Donlevatar friday. I'm getting into the weekend. I want to get my drink on. Stugatz. Got open up the club open. It. I would open it now. But is the computer buffering there? It is these live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. We're going to open up the club in a second. Also, it feels like we've got a bunch of good polls as well. I don't wanna say that. I have been totally humbled. But there was a plate of chicken wings outside. I was about to have lunch into Gotcha. Just came over eight eight of them and just looked at me while licking fingers Sadi number one session number ten and just ate all of my chicken wings, while I was having lunch just came over. And then walked off. These are the solo projects that end up breaking up rock and the good news though. I think is all of this falls on their laboratory friends, you take credit for all of it. That's what I'm gonna do at lebatardshow that seems like a good plan at limits. Hard show is where you vote on the polls, Billy. So you're not gonna get us. Anybody? There's not going to be any caddie gotten today. We're gonna have to wait until next week. He's going to run you around for sat next week. I could get aid caddy, but not the caddy onto all right?
