Remarkable leadership sign up by going to remarkable PODCASTS DOT com forward slash. Thirteen days and. Now here's your host Kevin. Hi I'm Kevin I can vary and I'm here to help you reach your potential as a leader and a human being. Welcome to remarkable TV today. We're talking about the comparison trap. Are you ready? Let's get started? We're talking about the comparison trap not the parent trap. But I'm using my parent my father as the example for this episode into set the table for the idea of the comparison track. Now you may or may not know that. I grew up on a farm and my father. I spent all of my time around my dad on the farm and he was tremendously skilled mechanically. He had great hand eye coordination. He had great visualization skills. He had a tremendous set of skills that allowed him to be highly mechanically inclined. He could look at something and see how to fix it. He could hear something and see what was wrong. Long before he picked up a wrench so I grew up with someone who was truly outstanding in these areas. So I grew up thinking that I had zero mechanical aptitude because in comparison to him I did have zero or very very little mechanical aptitude. I had that belief throughout my young life all the way up through high school and all through college all the way up until the time I got married got a job took a bought a house and met my neighbors when I found out that. Wow I have more mechanical ability than I thought. I have a lot more mechanical ability than a lot of people that I am now. Interacting with suddenly what looked like zero aptitude suddenly looks like maybe the seventy fifth percentile of aptitude around mechanical skills and inclination yet. I was comparing myself to my father. Who was maybe at the ninety eight percentile in the skill area? And that is the comparison trap. The trap is comparing our relative weakness to the great strengths or greatest strengths of someone else and when we make that comparison when we fall into that trap some bad things happen for of them specifically and let's talk about them now when we fall into the comparison trap. It saps our self-confidence listen my confidence around mechanical stuff was not high for some conscious and subconscious reasons but the reality is. I didn't have much confidence in my abilities so I didn't want to tackle things because I didn't feel like I'd be successful at them. And of course if data was around I just handed them to dead anyway. Sapped my self-confidence number two the comparison traps saps our energy. We don't have any self confidence and we don't think we could be very good at this. Like where's our energy level really low and so without self confidence and without energy? What action are we gonNA take very little not much motivation to take any action? The comparison trap us to be cynical. Let's the logical advancement of the first two. I could never. There's no chance. Why would I even try? And lastly the comparison trapped leads us to quit whilst the logical progression and no self-confidence I have no energy. I don't think it's possible and so why would I even try? And so we must avoid this trap because the trap comes because of us again comparing our relative weakness to the greatest strengths of someone else my ability to be mechanically inclined as my father was never going to happen but when we solely focus on that thing and say man. I'll never be as good as them. We miss the chance to learn from them. Our job is to avoid the comparison trap and focus on continuing to strengthen both our strengths and our weaknesses if these are our strengths and these are weaknesses. This is what we want to build. On both strengthen both recognize weaknesses recognized drinks work in conjunction to build them together. See Our opportunity. My opportunity to learn from my dad was to learn from him not to try to emulate him or compare myself to him in that particular area because for every area of strength that we see in someone else's I sure wish I was as good as them as that. They've got something that they're thinking. The same thing about u. Our goal is to learn from but not emulate or compare ourselves to others. Beware the comparison trap. Let me close with today's tweet. Comparing your weaknesses to the great strengths of others is a losing endeavor. Strive to learn from not try to emulate others if you like this little story.

Four Myo for military podcasts. On this episode. We're GONNA do something a little unique. We are invited into Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment. And we've got some really cool guys sitting at the table and pause joining me on this episode and I guess and I think it'd be really nice for us to dive into some of the things that we get in terms of questions I know you guys do in terms of social media and Such where people have the opportunity to reach out to you about what is it like. How do I get in all those types of things so I want to start first? Maybe with you guys introducing yourself. Good Morning I'm captain young on the Regimental Recruiting Detachment. No I see and I manage a twelve man team that is stationed around the United States. I've got a few of those members here with me today. Basically I'm the manager of a twelve person unit within the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment composed of active duty Rangers who recruit and serve as the conduit between volunteers off off. What we know. Is the street as well as inservice volunteers who all want to come to the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment? So I've got a couple of them here with me today and they're going to introduce themselves. Explain our mission and exactly what it is. We DO STAR. First Class Bishop on the recruiting NCO SC Work alongside with captain. Young is generally for us Work with my recruiting Illinois. Is We have them stationed at six locations throughout the world and what we do. Is We go all the it locations? We're talking to those individuals interested kind of letting them see the process in order to come to the same Fifth Ranger Regiment. And then we're also recruiting those inservice individuals. So that's going to be Steph. Aren't anything's GonNa talk a little bit later. And he's kind of helping with that process okay. I'm just curious for the both of you guys. If you guys can give it a little bit of your background as to how it is that you even arrived here. I know that there are many different avenues. that we're going to talk about for people getting into the regiment. What was the row Kinda? Give me an idea for the both of you guys. Okay yeah so I came in as a eleven bravo or eleven x Ray. I came with option forty contract and what I did was I went to. My recruiter told him wanting to be ranger? Show Me Love and Bravo's eleven next series. It was like that's what I WANNA do. Do you really have a good idea of what the Rangers were? But I knew they cool guys. I wanted to do that. So when had signed up for that? And then from that process I'm GonNA end to Osa. Went to the rip at that time so the ranger indoctrination program which is now the ranger. Assessment Selection Program Back then it was a four week process. Kind of went through that graduated went to My Ghanaian Battalion. Okay and you ended up at Third. Bat is over at third bed. I was there sobbing in eleven and a half years now spent majority of my time there before I came over to over to RSD as Aaron Co and then now working as a recurring attachment. What I find so fascinating about that. Is that lease back in the day. And I think it's still pretty true. That two years is about. The average are three years for guys being in regiment. And one of the battalions or and so when I meet people that have been ten. Eleven fifteen years blows my mind. Yes kinda Kinda the perk of being here in the regiment to where we get that stability and we kind of settle down in one location and you get grow with the same guys Just Work Year Round. So yeah yeah very cool and you you sort of have a similar story. Right Start Tagami. You're launching introduce yourself yummy. I am the four banning liaison for the recruiting attachment My principal duties as the banning liaison or to go to each infantry one station unit training company and conduct briefs and then cast screen All those soldiers in that company figure out who wants to go to the Ranger Regiment provide them a volunteer statement And give them the opportunity to volunteer to attend RASP. I also do the same process with every airborne. School Company So Infantry Oh sit and airborne school company every Class I conduct briefs take volunteers and get them assignments to its end. Ask them the opportunity to join the Ranger Regiment So like sorry Bishop I I joined the Ranger Regiment with an option forty contract The I kind of had the benefit of having a close childhood friend. He spent four or five years in First Ranger Battalion. So before I was even in the Army I had a pretty good idea of what the arrangement was about. And what made them different than the rest of the military so coming tonight? A good what I was getting into account the challenges is GONNA face Along with that relative who's also in the ranger admit So I went to basic airborne rasp with assigned a Third Ranger Battalion Kind of similar aren't Bishop. I haven't been in quite as long but in about nine years but I spent almost eight years in the same platoon This is the first job I've had in the army Outside of the scene that is assigned to and I I graduated from Rasp so it's pretty equal opportunity. Yeah that's again. That's pretty rare that you get to do that. It's funny because now you're doing you're the first ranger I met you know your counterpart again like fifteen sixteen years ago now and I was in school and I went with the ranger. Mine to a writ brief rasp breeding. I didn't want to go. I had orders to Italy and I thought that's going to be real cool but my buddy couldn't go without his battle buddy so I'm sailing chair and so he's just like you showed some Videos that people on dirt bikes and people jumping out of airplanes and stuff like that and I never made it to Italy. I just ran down the street to rip and DOC so change in lives man. Yeah I mean it's a it's a cool opportunity it's I think the real goal of of the job like from a broad spectrum standpoint is not trying to force kids. Devante here but you know somebody who's in airborne school and they're gonNa go to. What seems like a really cool installation which probably is going to Vicenza with the one. Seventy third super co opportunity but A lot of them. Just don't know that there's another opportunity right down the road or RASP that it'll be very different and probably a little bit more difficult but Equally cool probably cooler depending on who you ask so just trying to like. Get the word out that It's even available to them. Yeah no I think. That's absolutely crucial. Because I was looking back I remember. I didn't even know what a ranger was. I just knew they were cool guys and they have special hat and they kicked a bunch ass. And you know I didn't know how to get there. I didn't know if it was an option to me if I had to go to my gaining unit I or whatever so before we get to certain Anderson. I want to go back to captain. Young because captain is being an officer how was it that you came into the pipeline yourself so unlike these two fine regency owes it took me about seven and a half years to get to the Ranger Regiment? So back in two thousand eleven. I graduated in commission from Indiana University. I was in. Rotc Grad Reserve Officer Training Corps Grad I went to infantry basic officer leader course ranger school as a platoon leader in one hundred and I and a company commander in the eighty second and finally applied and very grateful to to gain acceptances organization. So I if you're an officer you can apply a number of different windows within your career from from zero years to twenty years in service and essentially get hired. Now you were a first lieutenant when you came in or were you already a captain. At that time I was a second lieutenant when I commend you. Okay yes and I reached the the regiment as a captain. Okay See that's new to me as well. I always thought that first lieutenants were typically the the way in not not beyond that correct so You can apply as a First Lieutenant. Typically after about a year with your first unit or duty station reason we do that as Allow some maturity experience on the job as a I attended as well as an officer evaluation report once we receive that there's a number of different documents and requirements That coalesce to form a full application and then we determine if that particular candidate is a good fit for the regiment will onboard them through Rask's to which stands for Ranger Assessment and selection program too. It's a three week program for e six to eight and Oh twos to threes and even fours. Which is I threw majors. I'm glad you mentioned that because those individuals who are on active duty right now that may be looking either officer and enlisted and they be thinking. Okay I'm too far removed to be able to get into regiment. You know that was something I wanted to do when I was a young guy. Now I'm an east six. I can't do that you know. Yeah the answer is yeah. You can't absolutely not and they should not De-select themselves allow us to do that and allow us to train you and determine if you're going to be a good fit. Yeah I knew I remember back in the day. The pipeline for a lot of first lieutenant even coming in was If you were a second lieutenant the best way to do it was to go over to Korea that timeframe and get your First Lieutenant in the regiment really at that time frame and Tracy may remember really liked I lieutenants coming in with Korean experience because you are on the DMZ. You know you you have the option to to really see more of what it would be like and you know so. It's really cool now. That here all of this because I think it's much different or I just wasn't you know aware of that information so I appreciate you sharing. That started Anderson. Not Forget you step arson. I've worked here at Fort Benning. I'm an in service recruiter. I basically answer most if not all emails that come into us. I've been in Ranger Regiment. My entire career which I went Option forty eleven axe back in two thousand eight and Went Oh set airborne than rip than Came to first battalion and I was there until two thousand seventeen and came up here to be recruited. So when you year recruiter you're not seventy nine. You'RE NOT A or you're not you didn't go to use direct and get the badge and all that then no. I'm still eleven bravo right now. Okay see people might hear that and they go. Gosh Sam Start Anderson. He's a recruiter. I just wanted to clarify one of the good guys. But let's rewind now that we're talking about that and go back to you know use a wreck so a lot of people are not again really sure if this is something that they want to do if they are they go down to the recruiter and they say hey. Listen I've heard about this thing called option forty or they may say it'd be a regiment Being Regiment and I was. I was on the recruiting side. I was on the bad guy side. So you know we knew that when you went down to maps that it was going to be the guidance counselor after you made it to the adds value made it to the physical. You're going to sit down with the guidance counselor and you're going to get the options laid out as what in. West is Uber Qualified. For you know based on your green color blindness and hearing and everything else that went into your physical And if the individual didn't know to ask for option forty there may not because they they may be looking at specific. Mos The needs of the army at that time for him. That's going to be the first pitch they're going to lay on them and then the second pitch is going to be. Maybe what you want So what I tell people is that. Listen if you don't see the option available and that's something you're dead set on then go back. You don't have to enlist that very first time and this is not something you guys got to answer just putting that out there for the people who are listening who may be interested. Go Back Down to the maps you know. Second time third time when the option forty may not be available. Or we're going to talk about other routes still may lead to that same path that they may not be familiar with. So let's say you get option. Forty any come in. What does that really guaranteeing individual coming in with an option forty contract so you option forty contracts guarantee you the chance to actually come to rest so anyone who doesn't have that they're Gonna. They're GONNA go through. They have an option for contract will go airborne school then go to their unit within the army That option forty. That's guaranteeing you the chance to come to the Ranger Assessment Selection Program and actually try out for the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment There's no guarantee guarantee you're going to be wearing a Tom Brady. It's not like you're GONNA go through. Get that option. Forty Mardi there guys gotta make it the gotTa make it the airborne you've gotta make there's no guarantee once he gets airborne school or Osa any basic training really because we take all option. Forty is this all day? Molested series But those individuals. They're still going to have to pass the course Whatever that basic training curriculum is. They're gonNA have to pass that. Once they pass that then they'll go ahead move onto a it or if it's eleven series. They're going to be no set. They're going to pass that and then from there that's when they're actually gonNA come to us and then they'll have to pass our standards and then once you do. Pass the rest standards. You'll go to airborne school and we still require you to pass those. If you don't pass that then it's still going to be option forty contract but most individuals they're going to pass Airborne Schools Fund school. Go go there live for three weeks. They're gonNA come to their gaining battalion. Go and then that option forty contractors that guarantee which battalion. You're going to go to or does that depend on something else. So option forty contract. The only guarantee that that gives you is the opportunity to attend RASP Beyond that that's that's the only guaranteed option for you Which battalion you end up at Typically is going to be based on the needs of the regiment so based on your Mos Which Battalion needs another ranger of your mos most most That's where you're going to end up There's obviously like we're human beings here to you so there's extenuating circumstances that can affect out one way or the other on a on a case by case basis but generally speaking when you graduate rasp then graduate. Everyone school you're going to go to the battalion that needs you with your specific skill. Set the most. So let's back up to a little bit because it's not just infantry they can get into regiment right and so there's a ton of different MOS's so people are listening to this. They automatically assume that a person that's in you know becomes a Ranger and works in Ranger Regiment is assigned to arrange arrangement is eleven series. That's incorrect completely incorrect. So there's over one hundred ways to be arranger. I think we're up to sixty seven. Mos is on the enlisted side With some of our newest editions being the cyberwarfare soldiers seventeen series and then for officers and warrant officers. Don't WanNa forget warrant officers. We've got about an additional thirty to forty and we have some very a niche like Functionaries of officers that serve on the regimental staff so there there's an abundance of ways to serve as a US Army ranger in your respective MOS. I think I like what you said. Initially you said something about let s de-select you don't start de selecting yourself so again if you come into an mos and you think doesn't match well okay then submit and find out you know. Let let the regiment say no. We don't need you I think that's that's a good way of putting it so once you get in and you're in Osa you mentioned earlier that you're GonNa meet you because you're gonNA come in to The hosts it. And you're GONNA lay out a presentation about how to be arranger what it takes to be a ranger. Yeah absolutely so as the as the fort. Benning Liaison I work on my office is on Sandhill in infantry basic training. Land over there so There's about forty basic training on Sandhill and every time a company is in cycle About Midway through a little bit after midway through their training cycle on his ait. I'll go over and conduct a brief and kind of lay out what it means to be in the Ranger Regiment. What we do what it takes to get to the Ranger Regiment. And at that point Anybody that wants to volunteer to attend RASP has the opportunity to volunteer. There's some some hard fast qualifications to join the Ranger Regiment. That I go over but once I have screened all those applicants anybody that volunteers goes to rasp after they graduate. Oh Sit In in almost every way volunteering for rasp in sit is functionally identical to coming in with an option forty contract. There's zero difference in pipeline No difference in pay commitment to the arm terms of length of service or bonuses. Everything's the same so just because you couldn't get an option forty with your recruiter. Because they do sell out right. There's a there's a given number of option forties available each fiscal year. They're spread out geographically across the country. So if recruiter is telling you that hey I don't have an option forty to offer you right now. They're probably not lying to you. They're probably telling you the truth because for your given. Mos that you're trying to enlist as they might just be out. There might not be any more contracts available for that year But if you qualify. Otherwise based on. Gt Scorer citizenship eligibility for security clearance. And that you're active duty you go to basic training and ait we have so there's liaisons just like me at Fort Lachica Fort Jackson Fort Lee and Fort Gordon so if you go to Afc at any of those locations You're going to get a recruiting brief just like I do at the Infantry Osa companies opportunity volunteer there and like I said functionally identical. They're coming up with an option forty contract. You're you're targeting. It sounds like the locations of where the MOS pipeline Are Going to lead into regiment. So you guys are located at those specific locations where you can get those resource. Yes correct sewer we have liaisons at all of installations where there's you know. Ait advanced individual training for the majority of molasses that we hire in the Ranger Regiment will I think just based on manpower we can't support every single AIT location and have have rangers everywhere But the the biggest installations that produced the most Soldiers in that. Mos is that we're trying to to acquire and we have liaisons there. Anybody also had an installation that we don't have liaisons whether it's Fort Sam. Houston if you're sixty eight series or Fort Leonard Wood You can always reach US via social media. A recruiting email address Reach that way and we can help you get through the process as well. Yeah that's that's one of the good things we do. We also have a l no fort seal Who's handling that location? But those locations like science guy who was saying. So you're Fort Sam Houston and Fort Leonard Wood. We're actually there last week. Doing recruiting trips for those individuals given an opportunity to go ahead and volunteer statement. And we're trying to hit those locations where we're GONNA be out there at least once every four to six weeks so that way every individual who is going through a ait. We'll see us at least once and then they'll have the opportunity to volunteer. That's great you guys. A ticket on a road show so we traveled costly And then sure we'll get into later also with the in service groups but we're going to all the installations this kind of giving them the brief let them know what we do Just kind of spread spread the knowledge. Everyone know how to get into the regimen. Make Dizzy as possible. So if you are in service and you WANNA come to the regimen. What does that look like so for anybody? That's in service on the wants to volunteer for the Ranger Regiment. What we require is basically from your dod source email we want your most updated s Rv your soldier record brief in PDF format. And we go over a screen and make sure you're qualified Then we'll send you out a rasp one or two packet depending on your rank so once you complete your rasp one or two packet. You send it back to that. Email the some five recruit at so. Calm Dot Mil and we'll make sure it's complete and we'll send you a HR's reservation if you're four moldable or below five or four. Promotional and higher We'll put you on the NCO hiring portal to get approved by the are salmon gaining battalion. Csm's before you'll you'll get your rest slot now if you're not qualified base off your S. Rv will actually tell you what you need to do to be qualified if it's possible. Wow so you're you're kind of meeting these people in the middle. It's not just like in the old days you know it's like here good enough or you're not good enough and sometimes aren't even really assessed Before this Atta you don't look ranger. Which really really old school. I think Even before my generation. You're actually going to meet these people in the middle a little bit tell. Hey you're not quite there yet but these are some of the things you can do to get there we'll we'll send out PT programs if you need it If you need to improve your GT score or get a secret clearance Or if you need to way because of the state so like some of this is going to run into just like. Gt Scores for one thing. How we talked about me in the middle of right now require one oh five. Gt score for you to come to the regiment. But we're going to build a wave cases as case by CASE BASIS. We could wave it down to ninety. Gt score so just depending what your mos is everything like that. That's where we're going to kind of work with you and we could get you down to ninety if you're a qualified individual pretty much Right now all of our eleven series. They're not going to be able to come in with the waiver. They're going to have to have that one. Oh five if they're in service individual or coming from Osa All other individuals of is going to be basically minded to where we could wave it down to. So that's just that's just one of the things we're currently doing. But that's GonNa Change all the time just depending on the manning of the regiment. What we actually need so so one of the themes I'm hearing here is. Don't these select yourself over and over again. This conversation which is very different than what I guess. It used to be what they might always been that way. Not The de-select Yourself. You gotTA show up and do it and if you make it you make it but. I don't think anybody knew that no outside. Yeah right that's awesome and then there's another opportunity right because after. Oh said you've got airborne school and I know you guys used to come into airborne school as well. Yes is again. I being the forbiddingly as on a brief infantry airborne school as well so with airborne school the the process is very similar Typically it's going to be day three of course At zero five in the morning. So it's a it's an early day but anybody that's interested in the Ranger Regiment can come out to that brief and same same kind of format right like who. We are what we do what it takes to get to the Ranger Regiment And then again the opportunity to volunteer if you're interested And then at that point Again same same screening process Find the qualified applicants. And then they're going to get put on assignment to attend Rasp so for the airborne school brief just like any of the basic training briefs You have to be an ICT. Soldiers initial entry training soldier. I mean you're in training status. Haven't arrived at a permanent duty station yet in your career And if you are that sort of soldier you can volunteer in airborne school and then immediately upon completion of Airborne School We COME AND PICK YOU UP. Bring you over to the day of graduation and you are in the pipeline to tender. Ask but as soon as you graduated from airborne school okay. So if you are an airborne school and you are currently in service at a unit would probably talked to Sergeant Anderson in that case. So because you'd be an in service absent so if you're if you're in-service There's there's nothing that I can do like on the fly to get. That is because there's a lot that goes into the unit probably paid their tdy to get them to airborne school right. You belong to somebody you. There's somebody reports. He's I can't pull you out and put in there. It wouldn't work so I have them. Come to the brief pretty commonly. I can answer their questions. Get them contact info. So that when they get back to their unit They have all the information they need to get. The process started. I also thought I heard something in the conversation where you guys had mentioned that you can go from. Oh said you can go to rasp in not the airborne piece in between so is that now. The situation yes. Another current situation is we're going from Osa to Rask that we're going to go ahead and send those individuals to airborne school We're just kind of doing that. Because it was being sold for the option forty contract as as sign option forty contract. You'RE GONNA go to basic training. You're going to go to your ait. You're going to go to airborne school and then you'll just drop your contract and then you go to the regular army. That's going to be able to get that Just airborne slot and you could be an airborne unit so that kind of counter that we have individuals actually coming in with the option forty contract. We're going to send them to rasp after Osa before going to school. So it's Kinda helped our numbers and we've seen a change in how many people actually quit. Voluntary withdrawal I when it was flip-flop. Okay so that's a positive increase. I'm guessing yeah so it's been a positive increase for US awesome. We've decided we're GONNA come to the Ranger Regiment. We've got our RASP date we pass it. We get our Tampa Bay and then I guess we've come promoted now. We're going airborne school but then we get to our unit look and we sort of expect you guys must get asked this question a lot. They WANNA be a ranger. I WANNA be a bad ass but what's it like when I'm there? So what sort of what do you? What do you tell these people? So what I typically brief two soldiers Slightly off topic. I kind having to do with like the don't don't de-select yourself The rasp it's it's only eight weeks long for Rasp one and that is the that is the entirety of the pipeline to join a special operations unit. We're pretty unique in that way. So rasp it's it's an eight week. Training pipeline with assessment and selection built in. That's the only touch point that we have with soldiers before their full-fledged Rangers in the Ranger Regiment so it's important not deflect yourself because the rash mcadoo super good job of figuring out who is a good fit organization and who is not So when you attend draft. He's had to go there with your best foot forward. Make sure you've prepared yourself as much as you possibly can attend rasp and then let us select you to to send you to a unit to a battalion So once he gets a battalion now rouses only eight weeks long we can. We can build on the fundamentals that you've learned during basic training and kind of teach you some slightly more advanced marksmanship Some breaching Training a little bit of medical training But then from there you're going to get thrown into an environment where you have team leaders and squad leaders her all extremely professional pretty experienced and have a very good grasp of training Rangers To like a a very high level rouse was going to get the the rough. Edges smoothed out But then your team leaders and squad leaders at your battalion are going to be the ones who truly like train you and make you into a ranger in the ranger regiment. The super super fast paced environment. You're going to feel like you're going a million miles an hour the first few months of your there But it's super worth it and it's it's going to be a lot of work but you`re. GonNa you're GONNA see vast improvements in yourself whether that's physically tactically technically everything in pretty short period time. Okay so I'm going to show up and I'm not just putting on my Tamboura and then thrown in a dip and kicking my boots on a desk it's going to be pretty intensive training. Dan I guess yeah. That's one of the common phrases you here in the Ranger Regiment is that it's super easy to get there but super hard to stay. It's a very competitive environment So graduating RASP is step. One You're going to get into the Ranger Regiment. Graduating from RASP. But the things that are required of you to stay in the Ranger Regiment It's a very high level of performance professionalism discipline So you're GONNA show up having graduated RASP. And that's a that's an accomplishment. I mean not to downplay at all but Your performance once he gets to a battalion and you start training and deploying on and being expected to perform yourself they perform as rangers should be performing That's what I truly gets hard so okay because a lot expected of. We've actually talked about that. Before we try. To tell people that you earn that Beret every day. And that's you know that's how I remembered it and I think that's important but I think when people want to know capable what is what is that like and why is it so difficult and challenging versus the conventional army. What would you say I'll say differs mainly the big thing safety breathing thing before the weekend's your first arms go and talk to you in pretty much every safety brief. They'RE GONNA have their hands up they're going to have The Beret in one hand and then just an empty hand and the other is going to be your scale. Any decision you make. You're GONNA HAVE TO WEIGH THAT DECISION. But are you gonNa want to make this decision loser? Tampa Bay or you're GONNA make the bad decision it'd be so that's the good thing or special thing about the regiment as we have our offense which is released for standard so if you're not upholding the ranger standard you will. You will be released. And you're going to be sent out to the regular army conventional forces so that's why we've kind of had that scale that way make decisions. Do you WanNa keep that Tampa Ray or do you WANNA move out to the conventional forces. So that's a popular thing and that's what kind of holds individuals accountable to where you have to work. Every day you have to earn your spot in the regiment. Maybe in the day in the life you can explain why Ranger Regiment is so important to the army and in what you guys do as a whole the ranger regiment is is between three and four thousand person organization that responds to the biggest national threats to our International Policy and can be deployed worldwide within eighteen hours. So that's a very unique capability that that we bring to bear. There's a couple of commonalities between all rangers and one of the things is that they like being part of organizations that are bigger than themselves so the belonging to a team especially a team that holds itself in such high esteem and standards is very important to a lot of us and The difference between the rest of the army and this organization. The army has standards as well But this this unit I can attest coming from the regular army after about seven and a half years of experience. This unit Upholds the standard without question. It's a common question to ask. How many times raft? Prove myself arranger. And it's every day and we we actually honor that Every year every ranger has to take the standards we have to pass the same physical requirements We can't have any pending. Ucf J. or you end up. Getting are so It it's a very pristine organization in that regard. And so what are some of the things that you guys enjoy most about being rangers in your careers? You guys have all been here for a long time with the exception you captain young And you've weighed that beret against that empty hand quite few times so obviously it's not just pride that there are some some other perks. What what are some of those things you just Abbott? I think there's a lot of people that say. Hey listen I don't know if I WANNA go there because my perception of what that is inside that fence is maybe very different than what you guys obviously from your longevity year. You're living at so if you're living that standard and you're living that lifestyle. There must have been something that kept you here. That's not all it's not all hard work in training right. I mean it's not it's a I think a lot of us say it's a love hate relationship because it is hard on. There's lots times when is really hard. But there's lots. Don's when you get that German fulfillment everyone here's like minded individuals. Everyone's very driven motivated You don't have to tell individuals what to do here. They're going to. They're going to assign themselves to go ahead knockout task. They know we have certain training coming up. They're not gonNA wait for their team. Leader their squad leader telling cave near Kim light bundles or negate any just any kind of thing like that created. They're going to go ahead. Take the initiative. And they're GONNA START WORKING. They'RE GONNA start preparing They'RE GONNA be ready to do whatever the next assignment and so. I think the biggest thing is everyone. Here is self driven they're motivated like personalities majority of individuals. Here they come from sports teams things like that. They've been on the higher teams. They WANNA keep achieving more. So I think that's that's just the biggest thing everyone wants to achieve and everyone wants to be around individuals who are going to achieve. Because that's going to push you to be a better a better soldier a better ranger. I think there's kind of two important points here we talk about. Everybody goes to ask One thing we felt dimension leading into like this point in the conversation is rasped as the exact same for every single candidate whether they're Cook a mechanic you know an IT specialist and infantryman. It doesn't matter. Every single candidate is expected to perform in the exact same way the standards of the same for everybody. Everybody does the same training so when you when you graduate after eight weeks. The Cook's have shot. Exactly as much as infantryman have the mechanics have done just as many breaches as you know. The the combat engineers there's zero difference In terms of the three battalions so we have three infantry battalions first second third capability wise. Those battalions are identical different special operations where there's like different teams or organizations within that unit that specialize in a certain thing Every ranger design is key capability wise. The same raw capable of the same mission set and what provides for us is a little bit of continuity You know I've gone through like a deployment and training cycle. There's there's zero like Extra work that needs to be done to ensure that we can do good handoffs overseas or go home and pick up training And then along with that. It also gives us a lot of kind of flexibility as an organization we can. We can perform missions as small as a team. Size element doing reconnaissance all the way up to like you know back in. Nineteen eighty-nine operation just cause as regimental level airfield seizure. So I'm having three battalions are capable of the same things at a very high level Gives the regimental commander in the army. we're pretty adaptive flexible force that it can use like at at varying levels of of size and how they actually implement the force and at a moment's notice it sounds like from just about anywhere in the world very quickly. I think it's important to make people understand that everybody is going through the same thing and same challenges on a daily basis. There's an equal mutual respect. And it's and it's a little bit different. I think when you're out and you're maybe assigned to an airborne unit Or You may be in the conventional army or something like that that you may not still feel that same camaraderie that you guys feel there. There may be some disjointed nece. You know combat support versus combat arms or something but in regimen. Here you guys are. You're on an equal footing. Absolutely all speak to that so shared hardship builds cohesion and camry. And I think that's a value or touchdown that the regiment live spy. And also to digress. About what Tagami was talking about. I WanNa make sure that we mentioned the other two battalions and the the parent organization the Regimental Headquarters so there's also a regimental special troops battalion. Which has a reconnaissance company communications company and an Hec as well as A very essential which we're gonNA talk about a little bit The regimental selection and Training Company. So that's a force generating company that is that gateway or pathway that enables initial entry training soldiers and and other inservice volunteers passer through to become rangers and then also our newest addition which was stood up in May two thousand seventeen which is a regimental Military Intelligence Battalion so that that has a military intelligence company and a cyber electromagnetic activities company as well In addition to Hec so all of these forces Fall under the regimental headquarters which is at Fort. Benning Georgia and they coalesce to form this. This Ranger Regiment. That's very adaptive and has a lot of organic capability. You know one of the things. I think that stands out to me in this conversation though is around You guys your longevity and how you speak so highly of it and being. A part of the unit is What type of leadership traits do you think that you guys gain being a part of a Special Operations Unit? And maybe this is again. Wants to a bit of a comparison but I just think on a daily basis. There's a leadership style in a way that you You you learn how to be a special leader in this type of environment and those are the soft skills that you're going to take along with those hard skills as you separate out of the military. So what do you guys think you know whether you've been in the conventional army or not? What do you think you're bringing From a soft skills perspective either back to conventional unit. If you decide to go there if you go out and you transition under the military to the private sector all weigh in on this one is to start. Then I'M GONNA kick it to the incident but so it it's embedded with our four charters so when I say charters there's four generals that essentially wrote letters outlining the regiment should be in part of that. Is that the regiment is responsible for being the best. But also benefiting the Greater Army so officers in particular serve on a rotational basis. So my clock has taken all be out of here in about a year and a half and I'm entrusted to permeate these best practices and lessons learned back to the rest of the army. So that's that's definitely one of our touchstones so for me in terms of leadership in like kind of the lessons that I've learned Having spent about eight years in the same scene You had the opportunity to see a lot of change over you know. Multiple platoon leaders multiple platoon sergeants. I went from riflemen to weapons squad leader in the sample teen. So every single person within the platoon at some point changed while I was there But the one overarching thing that I kind of took away from that eight year. Experience is that at the end of the day The whether or not the platoon was going to succeed or fail wasn't based on. You know the equipment that we had or the training that we were doing based on the people within the platoon so understanding that as a leader The most the most energy that I should be spending on anything should be spent on the my subordinates. On people I am working on training amend developing because At the end of the day I'm going to leave at some point. I did leave and my protein is still doing well and not to my my credit to the credit of the the people who are still in up lateen. We're just kind of understanding that You know when I when I last you know Third Ranger Battalion. The rifle that I use the night vision goggles I use. We're still there but that didn't that didn't affect anything So learning while I was there to hopefully my legacy range of retirement would be you know affecting my subordinates. In a way that would make them good leaders or you know hopefully better leaders than they would have been if I hadn't been there But that's kind of been like the the big overarching lesson that I've learned in terms of leadership. I find that really unique. Spend a little time in the regular army and you would find leaders that they would. They'd mentioned they develop you but they weren't invested on an emotional level like they were Into Ranger Battalion. And I think it's important to point out and you guys probably agree with me like you. Form a bond and Cap'n young. You probably can see the difference you walk into a platoon and some of these guys have been together for six years eight years. You know some of them longer to get more investment from your leadership. I think maybe you guys agree with that. Yeah I think I think with that investment to So we like the you know the ranger creed. It's kind of like the guideline of of how Rangers should live their lives And part of that guideline means that as Rangers. We should hold our fellow rangers accountable to the the the principals like imbedded in the ranger creed so if we're doing are doing our jobs and we're being accountable to each other that means as leaders as subordinates peers we're holding ourselves to that standard on and off duty so you know my my responsibility to ensure that. I'm helping out my ranger brody's doesn't just you know exist while I'm at work at the range. Whatever the case it exists twenty four seven three sixty five. That's always my job. Yeah there's somebody who's left The regiment I can say that there's a distinct lack of support once you leave that circle the I haven't found anywhere else. I don't think there really is a parallel for that. So that goes back to happen young or what you were describing that. That's kind of responsibility as leader. Especially an officer come in to the regiment and Served in a leadership role. The take those same traits as much as you can and apply them back into the conventional army so that the that those forces are trying to understand what it means to have. Cohesion team work Good leadership and understand that you know. We're clearly doing something so we can accomplish a mission later on so it's important to today's mission is just as important as that mission that we're training for as well and I think that's what you know the idea the antenna a lot of regiment as well as to breed good. Nco's good officers and in this type of setting so that you can go back within the conventional army. Continue that or at least bring that out there. And as I think I think just like Steph starts talking the ranger creed this kind of. We all live by that. That's our that's our pride and joy. Basically that's what that's the morals. That's everything we WANNA do And then it says we're going to set the example for others to follow. I think the biggest thing is those individuals we work with. Were training those individual. So even when you're a leader when your squad or platoon sergeant your training individuals below you to actually take your job No one's against each other like you want those individuals to come up. You want those individuals to keep going. You want to see him progress and you want to see him succeed. So I think that's the biggest thing like we're talking Individuals here have been together for six years eight years so I know everyone says it but it truly is a family here. We have a lot of younger rangers. Things like that too so everyone within the platoon. Even when we're not at work works over one of the tunes hanging out to go so the weekends we're altogether at barbecues like going out hanging out of to the bar. Whatever we're doing everyone stays together so you have that bond and I think that's what makes us Italian. That's what the commodity comes from and then that's where we're able to hold each other accountable so once we do go out to conventional forces We're leaving that same motto still set the example for others follow and we'd get out there and it's a little different because individuals do come. They're there for two years three years. Then they're going on to the next assignment so we get there and we've seen what it looks like We know how individuals can work together when they do get on board. Everyone's on the same page. We're trying to accomplish the same goal so once we're out there just makes it a lot easier. I think that's where leadership comes into effect. We're trying to get that same like we're trying to get the same results from the regimen. It brings individuals where it's kind of accomplishing and kind of makes that makes that the mentality of wherever you're at you know. I think that applies to everyday living no matter where you are with your out in the private sector. You're in a conventional army. What you just said I mean the whole idea of being an NCO Definitely is about to make those people below year. Subordinates that much better to replace you. It's it's the lift them up not to lift yourself up. It's not about you trying to get more trinkets and you know more awards and stuff like that. It really is supposed to be `bout that so You know definitely if you're in a unit and the Conventional Army you're not finding that within your unit. You can certainly wait to the next PCS or you can put in to to come to regiment. It sounds like If you're really looking for that because that's what you you experience here on a daily basis. Yeah exactly so we get the schools like we get schools and we're going to the schools. That's what happens with our leadership so when you are a private that's when you're going to all your schools when you're a sergeant that's when you're getting some of your cooler schools Your squad leader. That's when you're pushing down your privates you want them to get those same opportunities. You want them to come up and training also. So that's where you're kinda start separating yourself to worst not your training like to make yourself better on your training to actually progress your career. That's where you kind of made that switch and you're trying to bring the guys up underneath you and then everyone's kind of progressing together. One of the things that we get a lot is what is arranger. And of course you know there's ranger school and there's Ranger Regiment. And so the question is are they won in the same Sodas Ranger Regiment run ranger school because the whole idea is to become a ranger and it just seems like that's the right progression but that's not the case right one belongs to trade. Ach One belongs to a so-called Special Operations Command so there is a difference between the training and the real life situation on a daily basis. But everyone of you guys also has to go have to go as once you become a leader identified as a leader to go to ranger school so differences between Ranger School and the Ranger Regiment. primarily Ranger School is a school is run by the army. It's based on combat leadership and learning how to lead patrols and other people when they're extremely tired extremely hungry physically uncomfortable all that. It's extremely worthwhile school. Nobody in the range original ever tell you that that ranger school is a waste of time. you gotTa Ranger School. You'RE GONNA learn a ton about combat leadership and a ton about yourself probably more by yourself then you learn about Combat leadership but that being said it is. It's a school anybody can go to ranger school. And you branch of Service Ranger School will host. You know soldiers from foreign militaries Anybody is eligible to its end ranger school. The Ranger Regiment is a Special Operations Unit We share the word ranger in our names. But that's about where the similarities Begin and end is just in that single word Part of service in the Ranger Regiment. On this this may be part of what confuses people sometimes to become an NCO or to be an officer in the Ranger Regiment. You will go to and you will graduate from Ranger school if you don't graduate from Ranger school as a combat arms or less You're you're eligible for release for standards from the organization We send everybody ranger school. Because it's a super good way of It's a good benchmark for leadership potential so just like Rasp Is Competitive and based on assessing and selecting the correct people to join the Ranger Regiment ranger. School is it's a good vehicle for determining who we should retain within the Ranger Regiment because of the potential that getting a ranger tab demonstrates so if you go to ranger school and you graduate and there's another soldier that goes to school and does not graduate. We can with like a fair amount of objectivity say that the the soldier who earned a ranger tab At some point in their career has the potential where it has a higher potential to be a good leader And that's the sort of soldier that sort of Rangers were trying to retain within the organization which is why every single ranger goes to ranger school. Yeah and that's I'm glad you stated that because also I think it goes back to our earlier conversation about. Don't de-select yourself so if you've gone through ranger school you can also still apply for Ranger Regiment. It's no different but the fact that you have ranger. School is not an automatic qualifier. Yeah absolutely so having Your Ranger Tab macy ranger qualified and being the derangement makes you a ranger. Bright simple as that should dispel that we had a very long probably an hour and a half conversation about this subject trying to explain it to personnel from the navy and the air force because they were trying to say what is the ranger. Well there's a ranger and there's a ranger in okay so yeah Ranger Ranger and it got to a whole like to our conversation. I think it went to one o'clock in the morning. And then we were finally like we're just GONNA end this picked up the next day. Unfortunately but this is a heated conversation about what is arranger. And and how do you get into regiment? And I know that you guys on social media win like us when you ended up posting something like that and you see a soldier who has a ranger tab but they don't have the scroll they're not in Red Ranger Regiment. You know they go with that person's not really arranger this and then there's a whole debate goes on about one hundred and fifty comments on post by appreciate every single one of you guys coming on certain. Bishop kept young certain Tagami and start Anderson. Thank you each for coming on the show and sharing your experiences and what you guys have done. I think it'll be only educational but I think a lot of people are just really curious about Ranger Regiment which you guys do on a daily basis What it takes to become one and then not only that but why would I even WanNa join and then when it comes to the time when I leave there? What are the benefits of why he served in if I make the transition? How easy is it going to of what the lessons I've learned here to the private sector? I think we covered every single one of those things. I appreciate. You guys taking the time to join US thanks much.

"It's president trump getting ready fringe independence day speech for a campaign rally had not become politically until this week critics say the president gets part is that it could be a legal problem i'm noel king here with rachel martin and this is up first from npr news in twenty twenty census forms are being printed now but president trump is still fighting to include a question about citizenship even though the supreme court said no kennedy administration try again and getting out of gaza is difficult but things there are so bad people are finding away you cannot start a new life you will hear what people told npr's corresponding there about what is driving them away stay with us for the news you need to start this independence day this message comes from npr sponsor pinero a listener of your caliber has signed taste taste that favors at smoked chipotle lay chicken wrap with a new cold brew from their get them on the go with rapid pickup breakfast that's bad not fast food from era food as it should be patriotism or partisanship that's the question surrounding president trump's plans for the fourth of july celebration here in washington dc that's right today the president plans to given independence day speech from the lincoln memorial on monday a reporter asked him if he thinks this speech will be for all americans and the president said yes but then seventeen seconds later he started talking about healthcare policy what the democrats plan is gonna destroy the country's gonna be horrible horrible so not exactly nonpartisan but if he gives a political speech today that could cause some legal problems with the white house npr white house correspondent tamra keith is with us this morning she is also host of npr politics podcast happy fourth of july my friend how low happy fourth of july so president trump has a history of going to events at are not supposed to be political and then sort of making unpolitical a what do we know about the content of speech today well and as you say he has gone to places that are really not supposed to be politically lake like in iraq the day after christmas talking to the troops where he started attacking democrats in the middle of his speech a white house official who declined to be named a says they spoke on background said that the speech today will be all about celebrating america eric at the flag members of the military specifically said it will not be politically it is eight salute to america that is that is what event is being called but you know all assurances about what president trump will do or say have to be taken with a grain of salt and critic sorority objecting to the fact that the white house gave vip tickets to the trump reelection campaign and the republican party the handout to supporters now they defend that saying well this is a pretty common thing if if it was on the south lawn of the white house we'd be doing that and they also say that members of the military and their families thousands of them have also gotten these vip tickets so we mentioned that there could be some legal jeopardy for for the white house if the president makes overtly political speech what might those problems be their laws preventing the spending of government resources for political purposes so if the president's starts attacking democrats are talking about his reelection campaign that could be a problem i spoke with brennan fisher of the campaign legal center he says that a the the campaign might have to reimburse if if this turns politically if this does become a political event then the president's campaign pain or rnc should certainly reimbursed treasury for those costs and this is already shaping up to be a much more expensive fourth of july celebration then passed celebrations and i think there's at least be appearance that the costs are going to benefit president trump's campaign so be interior department has been organizing this end a congress could bring the interior department in for hearings and try to collect a if if this were to happen at someone familiar with the matter told me that the white house is well aware that some people may accused the president of making this a politically event and the ethics specialist with in the white house and lawyers have been looking at this closely end that the plan is for the president's act within all applicable ethics rules just fast would this be the first time a sitting president gives us national addressed like this on the fourth of july well harry truman did it on the hundred and seventy fifth anniversary of the declaration of independence a end there hasn't been one since then though remarks from richard nixon were piped in nineteen seventy a and it was a big mess it ended in teargassed will end the weather report isn't so awesome for washington dc tonight civil thunderstorms denver keith thank you appreciate it you're welcome all right the fight to keep a controversial citizenship question off the twenty twenty census seemed all but over this time yesterday we were telling you about how the justice department confirms it forms were were already being printed without question without the question but now a justice department official says they have orders to keep looking for a way to ask the question on the census now those orders apparently came in the form of a tweet from president trump once again npr tells you the long joins us to talk about all things census hardly i don't think we're gonna see a for a while and now here you are because there is another unexpected development here i am this was also unexpected apparently a from unexpected by the justice department attorneys representing ministration in these cases what happened what happened essentially was that they realize that a the position that they thought they were representing administration that they were ready to move forward with the twenty twenty census without a citizenship question ashley president trump doesn't necessarily agree with that and that he wants a judge justice department and the commerce department to try to figure out is there is another way to ask for citizenship question on the twenty twenty census a in time for it to be added how how could this even happened in the supreme court saying no you can't include the question for now the supreme court also allow the administration to make another case in court essentially the supreme court said we if you can give us another reason if you could explain another reason that is not the reason the administration originally game which is that this question could help veteran force the voting rights act that could better protect the voting rights of racial minorities majority the supreme court said that that reasoning quote seems to have been contrived contrived so they didn't buy the administration's justification for the question but at the same time they open the door they're like okay if you could make a better argument you can come back end end try to do that what what critics say is the real reason for the question there a lot of series that plaintiffs in these multiple lawsuits over the citizenship question the most recent that's come up is that this question a through files of the geo pd redistricting strategists they believe that this question could ultimately be used to help politically benefit republicans and non hispanic white people by redrawing political districts after the twenty twenty census based on the number of u s it is old enough to vote not on the number of total residents in any given area that could ultimately benefit republicans so that's one theory another one is that is this a way to use the responses so that these census numbers on that and determined how many congressional seats each state gets yeah after the census if that number could exclude noncitizens but that would be problematic for the court we would assume unsettled count these would be a legal questions i would certainly be challenged in court so what happens next i mean who knows but what's your best guess well these a job of station is facing a deadline friday two pm eastern is when a federal judge in maryland says the justice department attorneys have to represent whether or not the trump administration is going to try to fight for a new reason for the citizenship question and and if they do the judges ready to reconsider allegations that adding the question was a form of discrimination and also the conspiracy amongst ministration officials meanwhile the census keeps getting printed exactly without a citizenship question as far as we know all right impaired honey lo wong 'em maybe will see said maybe okay thank you appreciate it you're not gonna hear from people in the gaza strip about why they say they won't be there for much longer years years of conflict in blockades have made life in the gaza strip very hard now the white house has this new proposal to invest billions of dollars in both closet and the palestinian territories but that's not gonna happen anytime soon and thousands of gardens in the meantime have been leaving despite the fact that it is very difficult to do that all right npr's daniel estrin has been covering the story and joins us now from jerusalem so daniel this is something you just noticed right as you were going back and forth to the gaza strip you just seized on the fact that there were fewer people that right well yeah it's it's really been a major topic of conversation in gaza and every time i visited recently more and more people i have gotten to know in recent years were gone or they were packing their suitcases it's been really hard to leave gaza in recent years it's been under blockade by egypt and by israel's because hamas the militant group is in control there but now what's what you have is is a rare window of opportunity to leave because egypt opened its border last year it was a kind of goodwill gesture and so now we're seeing a real brain drain doctors surgeons web developers my own journalists colleagues who have left when you go to be gyp shin border it's really noisy and busy and authorities are calling out travelers names on loudspeakers and i want you to meet one of travelers a twenty five year old college graduate data coordi and he was about to say goodbye to his family and you see these are my brother is a really bad for me to leave them and also a really bad to leave my mother and my father but the epicenter for seek a better future because i mean if i might be estimates are that of at least thirty five thousand people maybe a lot more has left a godsend mostly for europe i mean free of her more than a generation life in gaza has been difficult almost unbearable bearable what is what is changed now well i i think life keeps getting worse i mean there were the things that we've heard about for years the wars the violence between israel and hamas the spotty electricity the bad drinking water 'em recently hamas moss's crackdown on people pro testing them but a big factor now that's driving people out is economic there's no real economy in gaza israel restrict certain goods for security reasons the palestinian government in the west bank is also cutting money to gaza and you've got this booming population of young people with college degrees in newark youth unemployment is about seventy percent so people were saying we have to build our live somewhere else but there is this plan rights jared kushner the president's son in law and the guy who's heading up kind of trying to fix the middle east went to the region led this conference in bahrain and end ruled out this plan that has been geared towards reviving gaza remind us what's in there and how people are responding to it yeah it's it's a multibillion dollar plan offer infrastructure for trade jared kushner wants to create a million new jobs he wants to open up the palestinian territories to the world but up palestinians don't see any hoping this a cushion her says very clearly none of the plan will go forward without progress on a peace deal and guns don't see that happening anytime soon and so godless just be latest chapter in this great exodus of people fleeing the middle east npr's daniel estrin force from jerusalem daniel thanks

MMP EP:33 IS HE A GOOD MAN OR JUST GOOD AT BEING A MAN
"Podcast unkempt chasing getting into I always ever evolving you know as a man yes it comes with a lot of responsibility but it is can be neglect the man what exactly his role eighty way like roles of men we put them in one category but they are I I know we have this general idea of when you hear about a man's role in if he is protecting his woman we generally the idea of if you protect me that means that you're just going to why are you going to provide you know safety for me Oh seven days a week day he's literally just financially that's the only thing we consider so if a man makes a good lead live in everything is but what if he's not providing for you spiritually or emotionally how's he still measuring up to his provision as is he still fulfilling the role and being protector he is Super Dope Eh provide new some material things like he got you mark Wright and he's a loving father we can't say I love you to his wife is he still being is he the bill in the role of being a man full innocence right because when you ask a lot of women like what do you really love about your husband wasn't one thing that she's GonNa say aw happened then we always think about the role up providing providing is what is the one thing on your mind you provide work with working security bay because he he's a provider so he made sure that mortgage pay that rampage the car no the Internet of the kids up all things for him I was real intentional on not warning accolades for that right don't make me feel good because this is my this is my son I don't want financially one hundred percent this one thank you provide but we sat alone this one thing provide for me right work in a sense of if somebody that I do all right you are protected from danger when you hit a top take the protect and provide take those two things to start adding layers on top of that that's when you start to get to masterful level exactly he's such a good provider armament we had this conversation actually like a year or so ago at this point and we always say when we see oh happy birthday to my credit for something that I have to do at the end of the day right bills need to be paid right that's like everyone doesn't matter if you do even work weapons you know I need you to show courage so that you can stay ground in you know cover me riots if something is going go spring into action right and I think we Kinda referencing I think we representing the TI in John Gray situation the American so especially use your endurance you let it go ahead use that I need you to if you know she will be going it's kind of like we had our son and you know we knew even here we wanted to we work in progress but we knew we wanted to do things differently so well we spent time Ashby like oh I'm ugly bitch look like mistake right like run questioned being right there will be in the comments and say you guys are listenable reason we love him so much and it will literally always be because he's such a good provide of all the things that you can be right okay yeah into certain degree I try to live in the world where I don't get credit for things so yep powder you back I appreciate you came must allow you but at the end of the day could you do what else could you be doing because I think exactly so when you think about protection right the essence of that is what you are established in defend the boundaries right you got to create everyone else thinks that they have a right to go ahead and give their opinion but the thing is a happy hateful exactly so that's the difference opinions dope insys of identity that since trust I mean there's that live that some other persons should not be able to cross with view that Yo man the whole which month he's probably still at least three deals exact something and then even there somebody's paying for the house taxes on it on lights or whatever else the groceries just because he is something wrong does that mean that everyone else gives to cross the line to talk about his wife the same thing the public person do you have the right to cross those boundaries or she absolutely protect the Rollo Protector Z. Y. winning a y'all's having threesomes he went ahead and he had to get on the side like you don't know necessarily the dynamics there but I'm always right I expect you to use your physical straight I expect you to use no well we action wait now proven sorta come tiny's appearance or whatever because he knows she gets the booty surgery you know some things is not sell flattery but breath seemingly was like he was confessing to cheating but then they flipped instead it was emotional affair about like you know I guess John Gray whenever they is talking about will I think they have like a sermon something right where it choice even if I didn't protect you won't role as far as protecting your heart in protecting our marriage at that point yet I still have to protect your reputation and it's thank those public shout. TJ Maxx he deserves his big house because the way that man right I'm talking about this book specifically a lot of his books in November someplace else is only now coming from one area I guess this was waiting when who has a job you got different streams income right that's they teach you people are coming at your wife I don't care if it's man woman child if they are crossing the boundaries of now disrespecting your wife do no matter what the liberal but I think most people always think that when your past in your money is always coming from the negation when if you like a real passer like right because I think people always I think he's the gate even if you would win through situations yourself like Oh man nobody wanted to look crazy you are going to swing back and do what ask questions lane right because to that degree what type of person would you if you just about idly and say well as far as when it comes to that public demonstration of you know you're protective role you should be able to emotional fears that can cause more damage physical fairs that sounds crazy but such but should he also because his problem allow people kind of person are you to throw somebody needs the bus like that you might say oh girl I wasn't trained right this is he was cheating on you bags he didn't get your shoes for kids thank you know half a half right I know have a have she got what was coming to write I told I told her this was going to come right and they can get such a gray area but at the end of the day to kind of unpack some of these things the whole time it was like you know one of my coworkers who will right right D- misconstrue but is levels to right and I think me personally always say when things as I start mature I would never put you in a position in the crazy dead I mean even if I hurt your heart I expect you to not everyone else hurt me as a woman I want you to let everyone else hurt me and they both denied that it was actually physical now was a bogus yes yes absolutely yes absolutely especially must be mad L. story up in the streets that's GonNa come back in and it lacks you you know what happened in the spring he to see that you see I want to know more about you more about meeting you right because that's when it crosses over into something else I guess they didn't even Reference Bible stuff I mean you deserve no coins because boy oh boy oh boy do we come up with the words and the movies he put together and stuff like that you just aren't you it's just like cousin did something or your friend it don't matter if they went down at that party with they fight and close all and swung on a person hey tell me just because I do this one thing I shouldn't have different three minute message burt cell is just that that fact right but as a man I know it you might hurt me that but it hurts worse than so many more people I thought in my face that and I think we learned really early St Kinney Nelken your snapchat can we go snapchat right snapchat crazy night and I look I know that's not you doing here he said I want twenty thousand dollars right now I'm telling everybody right away and I won't tell everybody number two what and I'm GonNa Destroy Right in the dot com it'll be about the most profile and this is an extreme example but the most profound example that shameless remember shameless when Ian knocked on the door Una beginning right when I'm Kinda out and I think because we have so much loyalty a history it a strike me different tea CR here's somebody looking obsessional he right way rather that be me right as opposed to somebody leave in the she's going to know I desire a thought if I want to write moved to Kalamazoo and start a new business right to the couple in the GEIC air knock on the door and it was like a doctor or some rich doctor that he was flirting with doing something within the look he needed some money really Bailey he found out what a doctor leave the doctor is Mary so he knocked GonNa do the doctor opened the door hey transform them into something of value you want to provide more than just you know material notice now at this point I mean independent or whoever it is at this point there's no secret that you can tell me that that I'll in into get them up when we decided that one hundred percent transparent hundred percent trailers while everybody benign what's going on in our relationship on the outside of what they think they may see realistic thing to me when you're providing you are providing you know in monetary value of course you also provided the roof over my head I'm confused and I'm thinking oh how could he do that and he said Berry we have a guest at the door and he's like he eh you are providing what like a resourceful miss you are also providing me a space think about when you want to provide for someone you take the lives materials from life and you know whatever it is smaller you always be the first person to know exactly so it only get into those provide a rolls we separate ways so I definitely got a different way of thinking about things we start to share the same values but make no mistake I mean he personal spiritual emotional physical growth I'm GonNa grow so it has synonymous change right I'm going to do things differently I don't want Mattis Kate as widely as a home you step in how out Bernice I'll see what he does else I've checked her last pitcher her nails pink in males pitcher green and look she achieved bitch she took him back and they all these new world just be calling his wife in the in the comment section to say this Greenie this greedy man she always sticking around would I want you to be going in because that just causes friction argument right so you are awesome our resource and I think in a way to win it becomes the this is the most simple yet complicated thing it is because I'm trying I'm always figuring you out I don't know if there's one reason where you can think that protective role is protecting me from also for sexy family or maybe I'm going to something my job I need you to be the you don't even have to say anything good that energy those whispers those couldn't is you know and it's kind of like with Jay Z. said on at four forty four out like I would never town goes on and you'll get closer but it will be drastically obvious somedays day you two different ways of thing like we grew up how to master those differences because the thing that's if you master it there bring you close together in if you don't that's the that's the very thing drive you parcel isn't that funny that's why we always say relationship it seem and that's what and that Masculine Feminine Energy though some differences that's what really brings you together it makes it so much richer book you have Dan the day jumped into the idea being like there's more than one way to protect and provide right and so you have to now learn how to mash those I'm going this way and the other person's going that way in a positive way as coast to utilize this test you're not it's no use salsa salsa will always be able to reach them we always changing because we promote growth both started smiling and laughing now that's an extreme example but wake up on can you went up on Mac os this ganglion where I shouldn't have to be alone you're my response to worship would be in a relationship right you should be my resource that means that when I have something and I'm going through because we are in the same person we are now we are so I know we're one just like dislike when he occurs and so even you a stupid broad but there is no no no no you just you know I eat paths which you find as a week anymore I'm on this Kale Salad you need to get into you like you've switched our that no more no more ear to provide me with a voice of reason just in even in our think this is a simple for me and but we get this wrong a lot because we are natural fixers go out hunt we killed and we we bring back the deal we cut it open it you know as she cooks all but just somebody to listen to two house was an example of that right to see chaos going around chaos women just fighting each other yelling and screaming and POPs just sitting there watching TV like if you don't if you don't do that you will look up years mommy don't even know associate anymore because when I seen those examples and I think that to be honest we ain't doing that right now right it creates a certain order but without that it could be chaos so I think we as me as Pacific we can't do better edges is not going down because if you would school at a taller bigger Schroeder and everybody else alpha male and say certain gear right toby to provide so I am program to provide is like the movie johnny five right it's literally he's direction right sometimes you just need you to list and I think that is one of those things that people could always a mess just as an example of course it's not just I'm going to protect you from the group group remain standing on the corner I'm GonNa put my Meringgi let them know you take in and you don't feel comfortable chances of her being attacked by family member who are the standard of the chances of our own children make hustle as you have to protect I need to work so hard and put my hand in my head and saying so deep where I can tangibly create the world that we wanted to live in a hill we think these ah that I'm stuck in one mode but sometimes you have to be able to kind of go in and out and when you say protect big old buildings give bill and all of these things these phones in these and not to say women right of course women involved in those things too because I think it's the same energy combat protect isn't just oh just one thing and even providing just easing just going to work raby big about after protect you from your own insecurities because the chances that those being trying to attack you and stab you up like his golden movie goes on day nine in the do jump out make be like that where you are so focused on one thing but at the same time got creative like that because somebody got focus somebody got to say exist yeah but that's how you that's I think so often men I think the term was metality that are re- where we can get stuck in Joe woman from her children sometimes those kids those kids will test you Haitians to a certain degree up in communication because why you are actively listening to me and you always want to come up with a reason to be like Oh man this is stupid of you the this this this the store right but sometimes I think a lot of its own I will go back to sometimes because sometimes she he was going to be generous that's the role of a man when you make something out of yourself everyone expects you to give back so that's an anything you make so if those the definition in the dictionary arrived at some point man POPs POPs was work he's tired he just wanted to sit back in as he wanted to just watching TV he wanted his little things he wanted US TV evily drink still gonNA bring home a check on Friday right that when his family members came a calling he cause a scene like obviously he had made it why why it comes from those Chavalit things that you've seen him both his father was gone his mother was murdered so who is it every night she must be but the chances of summer fest happened in this almost slim to none but the chances are being insecure about something the only be listening you need to be listening and thinking about Lebron James last legitimately airborne for like a Mo Brian you acting a fool a man knows that you know when they when a man knows once he knows a hundred percent everybody knows what he wants once you're not on the they will be gone for weeks truck driving be gone police at a time there he started working closer all day come home in because Dan he has now taken the role of any of that like extreme Mama's provides anything like wants to get back to your community you make it in your family right thing that you're supposed to also provide footage but that's your template l. he just wanted his full he wanted to TV and he wanted peace and quiet even at my sisters and my Mama was well in fight do whatever he knew that he he only knew took provides usually a story behind the story but but we don't we don't ask enough questions we just mentioned extra we assume perfect professing his love for his and that goes from your front providing for you I should be able to professing my love for Iraq it's me professing let everybody know you might women come protect you I- professing that if I'm going to provide for you you're my woman to provide for you it's one of those things the family houses right so now that's him and now the next up is you got so you do a certain thing is not you just doing other that's his thing that was his role he is he jumped into his man role as saying that he was he was if it was the it is just it's crazy right so you have all those different things at Kennedy teach you as you grow in you can think of another role as a man as far as the fire just so extreme but the chances to stop happening we've been watching twenty twenty whatever like some of the crazy things that they have done like almost like drove across country that you knew you wanted Eh last Thanksgiving at the at the Thanksgiving Party when I say she was my woman and we were going to get engaged here now on the same page and I don't want to backtrack now look stupid stick in there so we think about all those type of things as far as they are same energy you are working around dangerous in risk you are eliminating the competition when he prevented wow jobs Lucielle you've been program to this is what you've seen right and I think my brother because it's funny I I barely resolve rather than I do have a brother I have a younger brother along those things started to become shared and that's when they always call those the common three P's own provided protective professing it is this year given us this way on the side of the road right and hitch people up on cars cut is a dangerous job and tell everybody even come from Chicago thing I'm really afraid is God and having a tire blown out on the side of an expressway right they wash windows like the seventy fifth floor like bro You really bad right yes yes so because you're a man that has to be metric good just because but last night when governor because there's people who are good at are you a good man are you good to be in a man Santa Game you provide the professed the love you protect does that mean that you're the best man out there we always like to say there's Oh I also talking to the Tomio Wendy and I say shutouts totalmente because when you just mentioned dangerous jobs and I'm thinking that these guys pull up on girl the in due like now I've just protected her from all types of random this could be happening just ignore obvious the nature of right a somebody breaking your house and just killing our kids and I want to do something for you doesn't mean we neglected kids but we have to keep our union right and so to a certain degree I have to guide you and novelty right we need to have fun together we need to kick it that's how we keep it a thing because if everything is out of duty right right how do we keep that energy fence off woman oh that's how he heard about a full awhile right let us know it's not just a fling gave is huge that's funny I notice even we like you guys brains I am bringing home the Bacon but I'm not providing anything more for you are not doing enough providing novelty from you because I've talked to women whereas why because you profess on what you don't WanNa look stupid said it out of my mouth Damn Whoa what do I do act like big on forget what I said Crikey I can't make it but it goes back to that modality row row how do I switch out of this model fluent back into another schedule laugh together like well do the kids want to see that movie to Bra I'm not talking about the key is right now right and just because he has to be able to know that he can't just stay in a specific template or role that just go boom boom report counts all students you have got to be fluid you've got to be just a good person while trying to be a good ask each other's energy as you grow is being a good man is not being a good woman is you must know potential Kabila one time he didn't even give he just had that serious fast and look I gotta check to see if they still in the house right it's so quiet is being a father you know just maybe a good friend good in I think I was talking to a young lady murden though is make another no prices see what happened when he is you have to go ahead and to create an environment right where you can blog and right right if you're creating something I have to let the kids know that they came back alone those tell you anything but you can learn a lot from a person that doesn't hold open doors with person behind little stuff that you almost have to really be you look great man are you good at being a man would play off of what I said I came across a while ago that was just like you know just because you good to meet your we've got to balance it out that is you level up in your as a man or as even a woman you've got to be able to go into different roles like I have to appreciate be Human Dobie Aropa don't be a robot unlikely you cannot be like I'm following this I must go to this orders and just protecting dreams to rival we do certain things and put your position talk specifically blade to be able so you can be your wholesale tissue level are you just following the template of being the man are you just saying hey I'm going to go ahead go to work but look you in thousand dollars right and I think some things are about season right sometimes you make all year to a few months where you may happen just dog out and I was protecting you just sounds like I think he's he gets dated went out there with them crazy we'll bre somebody you have an a dog a couple months so that we get this new house or whatever you get this new promotion same vice versa but really you really bought this life it wasn't willing to look look look these McDonald's 'cause I ain't going house nice dreams when love is the problem exactly Lo Wu you gave them money you gave me what I think on the trip I can go on a trip Ryan so does it in here being good at the man means users able to be able to perform the male role cups family you know you wanna be complete I need you to give her ideas really when she needs you to listen to her ideas to protect you have to protect from all types of outside things attention to because it's so easy to overlook right if you don't say excuse me if you bought them back so you show me love but the all night and I was walking it's like you know what I went to go somewhere on the day right and say hey let's get some uh style let's go get a bottle out as department look so whatever it is and would it be a complete provider meaning that you would provide monetary monetarily you won't be able to provide a home you want people the new flooring watching the window which I would buy crazy part about being a man as well as protecting her from herself sometimes family you know out dangers risks things like that and you also want to be able she lied let people know that this is my lady so just keep you in that distinct masculine potential a couple of weeks ago when I told her you could learn way more from a person's character more than what they're telling you you have to if someone was telling you something you have to
UN Secretary-General's opening remarks at press conference
"Ladies and gentlemen of the media. Welcome. It is good to be with you ear in presence that also to be able to contact. So many of you slow our technical virtual. Mechanisms. The covid nineteen pandemic is a crisis unlike any lifetime. And so the General, assembly session will be unlike any other two. We have a full program and the stakes could not be hired. Our world is needing grimace of milestones when million lives lost to the vitals. Meanwhile. ALGEBRAIC remains out of control. Today we are seeing a report documenting what the United Nations has done since the beginning of the crisis and what the world still must do. DIVIDERS is the number one global security threats in our world today, and that is why in March I called for a global ceasefire. May Appeal resonated with member states, civil society, a number of armed groups across the world. And today from Afghanistan to Sudan, we see hopeful new steps towards peace. In Syria Lebeau grain and they'll swear ceasefires ostend steals in the fighting. Can Create Space for diplomacy. In Yemen, we are pressing for a ceasefire confidence building measures and the resumption of the political process. But the cross these and other crisis spoilers are active distrust is the. We must persevere. In. My speech to the General Assembly on Tuesday. I will make a strong appeal to the international community to mobilise all efforts for the global ceasefire to become a reality by the end of the years. We must seize every opening in the weeks ahead and make a new collective push for peace. This is also the moment the international community needs to come together to defeat the vitals. Many hopes on vaccine. But let's be clear. There is no panacea in pandemic. Vaccine alone cannot solve this crisis certainly not in the near term. We need to massively expand new and existing tools that can respond to new cases. And provides vital treatment to suppress transmission save lives especially over the next twelve months. But stopping now. A vaccine must be seen as a global public goods. Because covid nineteen respects no borders. We need the vaccine to be affordable and available to all. Peoples. Vaccine. That means the quantum leap in funding for the act accelerated and it's Kovacs facility. For any vaccine to work. People across the globe needs to be willing to take it. But with the spread of the vitals, we are also seeing a proliferation of misinformation about the future vaccine. This is fooling vaccine is and see and igniting wild conspiracy theories. Mistrust, in vaccines is on the rise around the world. We have seen a lot of media reports of large segments of the population in some countries indicating their reluctance or even refusal to take a future covid nineteen vaccine. In the face of these little disease, we must do our utmost to halt deadly misinformation. We must also do far more to address the global fragilities dividers has exposed. Even before the pandemic was veering far of course, in efforts, we radicati poverty. Achieve the sustainable development. Goals. And we were losing the battle against climate change. Greenhouse gas concentrations reach new record highs in two, thousand and twenty. The Northern Hemisphere has just experienced its off summit on records. The world is burning. And recovery is all chance to get on track and TAME the? Flames. Recovery must be aligned with the sustainable development goals of the Perez Agreement on Climate Change. Recovery Must Be Green.

Effective. Multilateralism. On Monday member states up to declaration marking the seventy fifth anniversary of the United. Nations and committing to a reinvigorated multilateralism. They will also invite me to report on our common agenda for the future. These will be an important process of reflection and I will report back with analysis and recommendations. Already across the anniversary ears. We engaged in a global conversation with surveys, Paul's gatherings in person and now online. We placed special emphasis on the voices of young people and the results are striking. People are thinking big. About transforming the global economy accelerating transition two zero carbon in shooting universal coverage and the racial injustice and ensuring that decision making is more open and inclusive. and. People are also expressing an intensying for international cooperation global solidarity. And rejecting, go to low nationalist approaches and divisive populist appeals. Now is the time to respond to these aspirations and to realize these aims. In these seven versity ear, we face our own nine, hundred, forty, five moments.

Take i think we all do at this point No you do have a radio of worst. How did what was your introduction to barstool. Oh follow dave for a while but the journey of me getting here is crazy. I i got a job with espn baton rouge which is the lsu flagships earlier. This year had done a lot of radio stuff being a guest for four years. And so when i got that job in late june especially with kobe going on. I mean i was like hell. Yeah i'll be here for five to seven years and ecstatic to do it and what happened to get me. Here was watching. The ole miss kentucky game on october. Third and ole miss scored touchdown in overtime to win it by one and i was just going nuts because we thought for four years and this is like the turnaround lane kiffin and my our producer our producer playboy more news.

I was sitting at a rate for the show. And i just jumped out of my chair and it was like. Wow i just got a job offer from boston to deep to your personal and you guys have kids now. Single kind of yes. Single basically only a couple of months. Before i came up here but not did you sign borstal odd now term so called fan. She wasn't ready for the big leagues. I she went to school at. Nyu up here. Actually from louisiana. She's been giving me a bunch of city tips and fired up up here. Were you in the city. So he'll hell's kitchen baby ochre but we got an airbnb. We actually more playboy more to us up here to fucking name Playboy we're just going to gloss over that playboy playboy morning he he was he was and he was with the espn baton rouge and is now up here too. We a room together and he found this an airbnb hell's kitchen. We've got a great value on early january. So we're still looking for permanent home but we got a good bridge situation now like some as much. My wife is from Mitsubishi from jackson and she didn't take to the city. Well she's just because it down there in mississippi. I mean people are hospitable. They pride themselves on hospitality. Hello good morning When she started working in the city. She's like you motherfucker just rude. I don't get it. You see you see somebody in the morning you say good morning you passing body you say hello you like you acknowledge each other. There's baby understand his people in the city. If you walk in an elevator and you got to get to the thirtieth floor on your way up you're gonna have to say hello and good morning to everybody. Do you want to do that every day. You walk into the building. He's gotta like i do it is. It is two seconds to say listen type. It took a while to adjust. Now she gets. She's more on on board with it. How how have you just to new york i. It's a faster pace of life but this being cove it makes it. That's all slower down. But man i'm love it i to be honest i don't really been up here for one night. Monteiro life in two thousand and eleven and the venture of this whole journey is intoxicating. I mean it's just so much fun to come up here in my mid thirties with a clean slate and get to the culture appears. Great everybody's been are you. I'm thirty seven thirty seven cents to. Because i did the poker things like poker thing right. Ten years inside of that was kind of what i did tomorrow thirty. Which is well. Because i think people here polka players in guys who don't shower for four days dark glasses and just grinding. The tables will reported a little bit a little bit immolate twenties. Man we out a great situation down there in new orleans because the new orleans poker games you know you'd have like so many tourists come through. There was whether there was like a gas or mardi gras or saints game. Whatever they were just you say so. Huge huge yeah family. Who that baby out baby. Black and gold fan with super bowl even miami when they want. Yeah yeah. I got fifth in a poker tournament three days before. It didn't even plan on going when i was playing at world series. Two one of my best friends is marks colson. Okay also yeah man. He's off women. Wow that's awesome man. what a career. He had one of the best rookie of honor question. You asked me your big poker player. How much money have you made playing poker. Oh okay well. It is what people would always ask. How much money do you make a year. he's trying to ask what's underneath. The mattress is probably not a ton of like when you when you play seventy fifth in that first world series poker ninety grand on get three hundred and something cash there forty but the thing i'll say is this day. We people don't understand behind. The scenes is the main of a ten thousand dollars. Buy in. I mean i put up like two thousand and sold the other eight thousand because that's out works in the poker world. There's a lot of you know it's a smaller community. And if you've got a good reputation and people know you're good though invest in you but like to justify investing and a ten thousand dollar poker tournament. I need at least half a million dollars to justify that your other when you were doing all these little tournaments around the super bowl and stuff are you going. What's a typical by. I don't know if we're gonna talk too much about rounders instrument typical buying what you walk in your trip is essentially you pay for your trip if you do well right like what are you walk. Walk home with so that tournament. That i was talking about there was right before went to miami super bowl. I wasn't going to super bowl at all. And i got fifth at one hundred and forty people order five hundred and fifty dollars in cash for seven thousand in that one but right when i got the seven k. I'm like man. Money's gonna come and go black and gold super bowl especially after katrina and the whole story of the rebirth of new orleans. I just bought a fight. And i gotta take a twelve hundred so it's a little easier back then than it is now and i was like front row. The upper deck plans to do a poker content. Baroin donate has poker podcast. You got any i went. I went on the podcast and had a lot of fun with him. Jake tool who. I used to play with a lot of full tilt back in the day. He's really really good. You teach public. Because i've never played it and i have a poker table in poke set. I never played poker plan with barstool and poker and a lot of my content is. I'm gonna go super hard during football season at the football. Gambling in the sec. In new orleans and all that but during non football season. I'm definitely taking this thing on the poker. How is this going to be to play world series of poker with the behind me. I feel like. I'll have like advantage with almost home field with that crazy of this fan base. But what's great about poker's. I used it to get to see the whole country plan a poker tournament. Go to i like going to the mountains. In north carolina you know pin gaming which we're partnered up with mayor star blackhawks colorado awesome poker action there right by denver and i used it to travel around the country and get to see different cultures and stuff and i still love to do it but in my thirties. It's a lot better to have it on the side to where if i don't lose my light bill not feeling so help me out with the winning the thrill of poker because somebody who's not into that world where they don't pay too much attention to it west. Where where do you get the rush. May i love the. Let's see i'm kind. I love the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in the big tournaments. Because i love how you can risk you know two or three hundred bucks and win fifty k. If it goes right i mean. What else can you do that in life. I've soldiers legitimately done that. A bunch of times not selling drugs the poker thing. I've put up fifty bucks one ten or twenty thousand like that used to be a regular thing back when online poker was at its heyday if you find anything else in life where you can have that kind of return on investment on one kind of tournament. I'm not saying that every day. Obviously there's ups and downs but you know i. I just never really found anything else. We could do that. You'd have to hit like a twenty game poorly and if you're been sports. We have a lot of pros so so-called a word to call it. What would you call the stew. Finers the rico. Brasco do as sports adviser so we have a bunch of visors at. Stu is known as the sports gamblers right. I mean most of them suck most but some are good and evelyn. Evelyn super. because you know. I'm assuming that you're brought up here for gambling content right. They brought me. Dave saw the brandon walker thing. Is i think the big reason. I got brought up here with the nba and so diehard mississippi state. And he's been house. He's been attacking mississippi state so much hate in their heart very they just. Hey it's so hateful they just. What are your thoughts on brennan walker. I he he he. He's really hard at the oldest fan base up here. You don't back down. He no he doesn't he's been he's been he's been cool he's definitely been cool to me and often get to do a lot of programming with them and he's been nice to be in the office but i still we get this egg bowl coming up in a few weeks so i'm not going to get too close to the saturday after thanksgiving dinner oxford and then we've got a bet where the winning team the winner gets to chunk eggs because it's called egbahl sure to throw eggs outside at the loser and apparently they're saying it's like you get throw as many eggs as the final scores points. Have you seen the state's been looking here lately. I better get. My right arm was branded. Loser's gonna be out on the street and you can launch exit them. Yeah and then you get to save a couple of eggs that you can crack on them at anytime for the next year or having a bad day. Eighties chirping at me on the radio or like i don't want to hear this today and save those few exile those last few bed precious. But i think it's going to be a really fun. We're getting on the fan. Base has been super supportive because branagh walkers been giving them a lot of crap forever year here and so there's a lot of people fired up here. Does your guess blood. Your love for the has only started because you went to the school. Or will you grew up. So my family has a farm the mississippi delta by greenville three it used to be caught soybeans now like That kind of the greenville area. Late washington runner. He's from india nola mississippi delta at highway sixty one The mississippi blues always got so much great music history and culture. That you talk about somebody of my father-in-law is A well known bass player within jackson his family's riddled My wife is started. They're very interesting to the music culture and in texas. anyway. I've been out to the delta. 'cause he was actually perform down there and it's it's almost like a movie set. I mean he's like all rich deep south all kinda sound like you all got that you know that the seven twenty two but you talk about music. oh man. mississippi's birthplace of america. You're fine you're fine like a five year old. That could just crush go tar too old man who can create like every everybody's entrenched into music man so i love the mississippi music and culture and so i grew up in this will be dealt. Well my family had the pharmacist. This delta went to ole miss. My mom was law. School at ole miss and his family and i ended up living in oxford for ten years because it took so long for me to get that damn degree got it right. I finished i look i. It was a big deal for me to go back thirty one thirty two. Because i came out of that gambling world we're money super desensitize and it was a faster lifestyle. And i went back to ole miss and worked on the salad line. And the kitchen it proud larry's and you go. Let me just tell you. It's about larry. That's the music venue in oxford restaurant. That's where they have all the shows but let me tell you it's a long special fall from getting seventy fifth in the world series for ninety k. To make an eight dollars an hour on the south lawn and it's the best thing ever did because it humbled me salad. I need it probably a couple more of them to be truthful but at that actually really helped me going back to college. College kid can reset reset my life and reset my priorities which is and You know leaving new orleans you got a little while down there so kind of needed to go out there and please don't say come on but you've been watching it elections wichita i.

So that was the election. I was watching and super super. I'll be honest. i'll just said south there. i'm independent. yeah. Yeah i stay. I as far as my content and stuff goes as far away from that. As i always say this. Look people care as much about how i vote. They wanna hear how bet on these games. You know. I know. I feel like i know my role that i'm entertainment and i'm cool with it but a lot of people hear your accent assume you're one way of course the deep south and so they're going to say this kid super conservative and i'm not. I'm not that way too. Fucking ole miss. Joe johnson guy. I am good family. Senator roger wicker from mississippi republican law. School my mom. So i do know very very very well.

We have our reporter in dixville notch. Isn't joe biden. You have to know what you're feeling is about pennsylvania say two things and then we'll drop everything objectively. This is a better show when this is about the cousins and cousin trista on monday and fridays. When you are those you can do whatever you want. But when me or trent or the host and is planned beforehand that it is our days. Don't try to make plans for our show because we are in charge. Just second a ball be quiet. Let's move on second second. how would you feel. How would you feel if trent ri- said that. Oh friday without talking without talking to you said on the air cheshire. Can i say. Can i say something. Can i turn last. Person is if we were to say on friday that something big was going on air and cousin. Mike doesn't can. We come on the air on friday. Ken commune trae. Come on the air. And we invite fights. We invite casey vital and these people control without. How would you worry about that. murray can you. Can you step in and give some perspective here. I'm going to step in. We have a report from dixville notch. Get the democrat. Took a five nothing lead for the first time ever feel. Something has happened to say something here that i always say. 'cause amari murray whenever we have any discussions about this show at all what i always say to cousin. Murray no matter what we say in the end it doesn't matter. No no it really. That really doesn't matter. What does matter is who's going to be. The president of freaking united states that matters both of my listeners have clicked off exactly i know eight thousand three hundred seventy six six five. We have calls coming are ready. Cels congratulates interested. You're on the show exactly does income me. Repression is a what is going on in the state in which you were born cousins. The place that places the calls up to him. I can't even get them to get it to stop argue. we now. you're interrupting him. Tell i think going. On in pennsylvania through a first of all the way i think pennsylvania goes. I think the election gives will close. I don't think it will be decided. Tonight's nights whether the trumpster wants to bring in the national guard and the pennsylvania attorney general wants to call the election. I it's not going to be decided in night. What i do know. Is that specifically my hometown district. Which it's not my district anymore. Because i'm in new jersey and i said this last week the registration numbers for my hometown where i grew up our up like five hundred percent generally democratic area and it is it is generally democratic. So would think. I'd i'd say actually it's probably already split around me. Actually but the philadelphia. The philadelphia city area is mostly democratic suburbs. It's split fifty fifty. My hometown is like in that area. So that i do but i think the people that are registering to votes would naturally vote democratic in that area. The area that. When i was with you and your dad that we drove down. That was a beautiful area. Very expensive is auto republican or democrat or split pretty split but some areas lean heavy republican some most areas street basically forced trump's gonna do what i'm worried about. This might be incredible to believe cousin. Mike but the more wealthy areas specifically around philadelphia tend to vote republican but middle-class the lower class areas will be voting democratic split. It is like. I mean the meteor absolutely totally flooded with Advertising unbelievably so more than you ever saw a. You're not there. I think that's everywhere everywhere. Maine the setting records. Yeah have you spoken to you while i know what. Your parents leanings friends if you have any spoken anybody back home. I think it's been pretty exhausted. Exposure for everybody just tied of it. Exactly and i don't think tyrod and i genuinely don't think especially where i grew up. There are people truly on the fence and he can bones in the arena. Where they don't know who's voting. Yeah you are. They have today. Everybody knew they have all these rallies last couple of days. Who's the people who listen these rallies already have made up. Thank their mind. why are they. They're not a supporter. I mean i think it's right. Why are they listening to one of the other if they if they just want to You know just fuel there Already the decision. You wanna hear pleasant trista go on. What are you going to let him. See what you're gonna say smell. I said you wanna hear a good opinion from somebody. Outside of philadelphia vinnie from delco vinnie. From delco vinnie. Del town boys delaware county. Okay yeah right outside right outside of philly alco. I want to six thirty this morning. Devote a lines and all the polling places in delco or already an hour and a half away at six thirty. It was crazy every they are. What's alan is that a democrat or a republican area. It's very split. It's very split fifty fifty. Everyone was getting along though. Everyone was just happy that everyone's out and voting and polling Watchers people are helping out the polls they were saying from a percentage wise. It'll be the biggest hurry out in election since the nineteen hundred or take cousins. By the way they were still women's suffrage they're women could even though they suffer from percentage standpoint. It's the biggest turn-out since nineteen hundred creighton. I ask you a question when to mckinley election and this election is kind of split area. You said okay so when you when you were in the year. The polls w- signings wi with the candidates. Did you get a feel for who is more paying attention to that particular location. Actually everyone was just talking about how awesome it is that everyone's out there and voting and everyone already made up their mind. You know people were going to go for. Everyone was decked out in rather decked out and blew. It didn't matter it was. It was good friendly environment. Everyone was happy to wear masks and social distancing People who are going to vote one way where where we're wearing masks can people are going to go. The other way definitely would not wearing masks. And no one. No one was social distancing. It's freezing well. y'all got online. It's six six thirty. It was about thirty nine degrees. And everyone's huddling together trying to get that house that morning drinking in delco. That's exactly what we were doing in the presidential like Just like the how. Many people voted for Bill clinton while drinkers. And i call cousin. Vinny having been alive for seventy three years. Okay and i one thing. I've always thought that. I had pretty good intuition about different things. If i'm gonna go out on a terrible windy day in stand in line. And i'm care where we're talking about two or three hours right. Generally i think it's the people that are anti anti trump was i. Maybe i'm totally wrong about that. But if you're going to go you got a real mission. And i know they were trump. I think i don't think so. I think it's the opposite. You do you ever know the trump people you might be right. I just think when people have a real well you know the guy's already the president you know which we know and somehow you feel i just think that the incumbent no matter who it is. It's very difficult. I think took to motivate people in the way that you gotta be motivated. He can do is motivate well but motivate at a rally. Might be a little different than to vote that. This is such a close election in pennsylvania. That i think getting people riled up. I think that the people will go. The both both parties are going to go as much as they can smitty. I can't of ask a question. Yes sir yes if you if you had bet money today what do you think i mean you. You must have an opinion you must. I do have an opinion I on cousin. Murray's point I can't speak for the people who like willingly. Wait in line and go out to the polls. I think there are people from both parties would do that but i will say new registered voters signing up. I'd be shocked if that wasn't the merger. The majority wasn't voting democrat. But my opinion my opinion right now. I still think it's a toss up. I still think that they are a bunch of people who refuse to be polled or closet. Trumpsters like in two thousand and sixteen. Who are going to go out and vote and skew this election. You're already seeing it in in cousin. The people who the democratic voters have already voted. It's the And the republicans are the ones. That's what everybody says are the ones that are are voting today this so seriously. You're saying you just don't know and you're hot you just don't know no. I don't think it'll be decided today. I know that. No pennsylvania won't be there they don't stat Pennsylvania won't be decided. The election probably won't be far if florida goes up by. I think he's going to be biden's gonna lose them. Florida taxes in texas florida or pennsylvania. Goes there goes. Did you guys see that a that article that i sent you about the villages in florida largest retirement community in in in the country. And there's a bunch of shy biden voters that will not admit to being converts from trump to biden because there are people who are like spring weed killer on their lawn. They're pouring beer and their golf carts. All of these trump supporters are basically doing all this like election warfare and their eighty. Five years. old can do whatever you want to my lawn but you touch my golf cart. That's the end skin. They're writing trump in weed killer on their lawn. And we kill and we'd villages is a whole. This is an amazingly watch. Was the biggest play biggest condominium place. I don't know when the country maybe they asked where they get the most. Std's to read that years ago. That y y you reserve the condo seven condos waiting cuza matt because a math from florida or you go check in what's up because from rolando morning cousins gonna walk coffee on my way to go vote right now was every now isn't it. And where's he from from. Orlando florida taking over the. Let's hear what. What do you think's going on. Well we live close to downtown orlando and it's Pretty blue or Any indication. I put money down on biden to win florida based on what i've seen but again out four corridor you never know. Does he. usually he usually does. Did you said democrats usually win your area correct. Can i ask you a question. when you're looking for girls villages he's from the ira aids range. But maybe years isn't he. He's a long way from the villages. Indo no villages about an hour away look roles. It's a great time to you. Know the other thing too is. Thank you very much places with like. I know in texas also in north carolina. they're talking about. It's been such an influx of younger people coming in north carolina's a big example of that Because of big national companies relocated their charlotte charlotte financial raleigh raleigh rallies. That's gotta play over. There isn't charlotte when the biggest finance places to go and what else charlotte. Raleigh dallas has a pretty big Like financial investment banking austin columbus. Oh connecticut hartford use up. And they say that the old people's stamper going to biden because of the covert. They can't see the grandchildren and all that stuff and the younger new voters are going to a trump. it depends. I think on where they are. So if you're in a place where propaganda is high. Then because i was listening to a podcast about florida. Specifically that's where i learned about the villages and they said that they they pulled a bunch of people who were early voting in florida that were older and they basically said listen. We don't blame trump for covid We don't think that he could have done anything differently. And yeah the viruses. What the viruses and you know. We still support him and it was very hard for them to find older people. In those key areas of florida that were converts from trump to biden. But that could be again. That biden that shy biden voter. That doesn't want to admit your orders and then you've got these quiet Trump who exactly so cousin. My cousin murray you asked us. Who do you think is going to take this down. And i happen to think biden is going to win and i think he's gonna win handily and unfortunately that's not going to be the end of it. One hundred percent no matter what happens. It's not gonna be the end of it but you know what else. I just lost my train of thought. I lost train. It'll go to the courts it could very well go to court and by what they say. What's going to happen is that trump is going to be ahead in today's voting because republicans vote the day usually when he gets enough electoral votes. He's gonna Do declare as a winner. Click which i'm not gonna lie. I mean that's just brilliant move. It's is it legal. Is it right no no. it's not. It's i sat up the problems. That are gonna ex exactly. But if that's the only way he can take this down in his best chance of winning four more years it's funny. How the president is supposed to be the savior of the voting process and free america. And he's trying to He tried twice chip away intimacy seven thousand and he was saying he was saying that two thousand sixteen election was going to be a scam until he won. Then all of a sudden everything was just Derek bader who is a sixers reporter actually brought this up and it's very interesting that if we found out that trump would like might be doing that through like third deal or backroom. Shenanigans like it would be a lot bigger deal than it is the fact that trump even though he didn't outright say that he was going to do it the fact that he has denied it. And it's he put it out there kind of makes it seem like okay if this was behind the scenes and we found out about it through like a leak. It'd be a lot more of an issue or if biden claimed that he was going to do that. Holy shit good. God is everything he did. I that that caravan that That took over the bus route. And he said oh they were just protecting patriots possible if condemn it. Then we're in some serious. I mean he didn't he didn't condemn white supremacy during a debate. That's that's a bit of a problem. Cousins our room on the on the plane to go to zimbabwe where we can be safe. You and i think folks talk. I want to say something. I can't tell you how unbelievable this all is to me even now. Oh yeah and we've cousin married. I used to talk when the trumpster was. We used to say when he was all always talking about running that it was just for publicity and then when he finally did it that it's come to this that the i'm not talking about our little catfight there before i'm talking about. What were you even talking about now. Which we could be talking about. I'm sitting here. And i'm saying i. I am still incredulous the day before that would happen. I was gonna ask about that but in a minute. But i can't believe that this is what it's come to. I just can't believe it's even though it's been going on now for four years i can. Cannot i still have a hard time accepting that this is what's happened. I if somebody would've said to me way back when i when he at any point four years ago whatnot i. It just boggles my mind. This is where we are in this. I didn't think it was possible. I honestly didn't but if the anybody could have done this it would have been him exactly. Nothing he's done and no matter what he says. People go nuts. it really is like a cult. Yeah well cousin murray. That's the one thing that this is open or two and it shouldn't be for anybody. i guess. At this point there was so much division in this country. Which ain't gonna go away no matter what the results are absent that it's it's mind boggling. People that are so unhappy not on this show obviously this morning but obviously the suci ya so. Many people are so unhappy here i. It just boggles my mind. I've got a question live yesterday. That that i thought about very very hard. Somebody asked if we could see a cousin. Landlord presidency in the next sixteen years in initially. I just laughed off but come to think about it then. I'm not running. i'm not very possible. Exactly if he put his mind to it and like started now epochs start now around sixteen years. Have a cabinet position. You have to know you have to know politics a little. Do you do with a cat. maybe not. I just got new cabinet. Because maybe not. I think i think cousin because landlord doesn't pageit's is personable smart and charismatic. Enough that if trump could do what he did i mean i think i think it can be easier for a cousin landlord to do this. Not to say that he would be as polarizing or or seemingly. You might be various times as cousin trump and do whatever it takes to win even though that's like sometimes what you have to do apparently in politics. But i'm going to have a gun that yeah. But but like legitimately. Dave portnoy could be president of the united states. One day doesn't doesn't sound good. I i'll tell you one thing following up on what you just said. I think we are right for somebody to come along. Love blue and not be todd with any one of these existing situations and like a breath of fresh. Iaea though a lot of people are dying for at this point. I if somebody said someone said these things happen in democracies where you get and lie like trump and then you vote them out and then but and that shows what the country's about is that we voted him out but if he gets reelected that shows what the country is to accept that. But the you know something because amari because you and i have a certain view of what this is going on now which. I think pretty similar. There's a lot of people that if if if the trumpster loses they're going to be very very unhappy obviously especially close. Yeah and. I don't think even if it's not close. Yeah i think they're going to be unhappy. And you're saying you think well what you said it's kind of. I don't think it's where we are saying. Well people will say well. Thank god we got a system that works etc etc. Those people especially trumpsters are going to say no. This system does not work. And we're going back to to the to the bunkers. I don't mean archie bunker. We'll go back to the bunkers and we're not leaving and it changes the whole bedrock of transfer of power. Absolutely these things he saying now. Maybe the most outrageous thing these said all along he say what he asked to stay to survive and many again smitty they. Are you think things about you. Better board up your stores and all that stuff. Yeah of course. New york's militarized. Sooner is doing it too. We were talking about this yesterday. Right mike mike. You're like don't go. Don't go walking Maybe you're a few days. Last last night i went on. Some balls isn't as bunker probably an hour and a half walk. I went on like an hour and a half long. Walk down to flat ironing greenwich village in all of the buildings. All of the buildings were boarded up. Some balls turn down and secure a podcast because he was scared. Any bolovia actually to porn star podcast offers tomorrow in both said absolutely not tomorrow is a quiet day. No you're kidding down no but it is It is scary that That stores have to do that. And how do you compare. Because murray how do you compare this to the vietnam situation. Where all these students and people well. I think the comparison is everybody was polarized about one issue whether you were on our win or whatever. It was one issue mainly except for the race by was also the but Here is just a matter of i read or are you blue or trump. are you anti-trump. And that's it and of course you had a president that was saying in a in a in an address. I'm not running again. Can you pitch it. Can you picture this individual saying. I've decided that. I am too controversial to many people. It's too much tumult. And i'm just going to get out of the way so we can have the process. Continue and get to where we went and by the way lyndon johnson was saying that he wanted he wanted he he wanted to straighten things out. But i'm gonna get out. Get out of the way to help that happen. Because i'm too controversial. Yuck j. couldn't get away. Get out of the way of his own hog but getaways press house about gore gore could still could to gain absolute the supreme and look at john john mccain and the good old days of john mccain saying we all gotta come together after he lost yeah i mean mccain kane in two thousand could have done a lot more to fight for himself. A lot. more in this country could be a lot different But we do have to take a break right now. Eight hundred three hundred seventy six six before we do reiterate this at the end of the show. Please get out and vote. It doesn't matter if you think that your vote doesn't matter or if you live in a state that won't decide the presidential election there are still state elections. They're still township elections in which you might not that matters if you live in. Danvers middleton or peabody. Sally cairns. Okay if you don't think like the local stuff matters it matters and the older you get the more bullshit you have to go through if you have to deal with the township ordinance or a homeowners association that is derived from the shit matters to get out and vote from the local to the national level.

I'm i'm not gonna lie here. I was hoping that we would be able to create. That was the worst thing i've ever heard. That's nothing you just said made sense or tied into last night at all that we feel pretty confident. Who the next president is going to be at this. I mean i would think you do. Yeah i would. I would have thought you when it came out from the gambling standpoint. This massive swing of bite being fatal. You not understand that. Joe biden is pretty much on the doorstep of victory. I honestly didn't now. He's the big favourite now when it matters when things are about to end. But i thought you would have said from the gambling standpoint try. I don't support any of the book. Besides forces sportsbook. So that's what i didn't know i didn't look at any lines so i didn't also know biden was gonna win right now. Okay the barstool sports.

Yeah the mac. Some of the most entertaining college football. You'll see it makes no sense. It's nonsensical football. It's oftentimes really really bad football. And it's on the threshold of so bad. It's quite good because you just never know what's going to happen. You never know what's gonna happen is ever safe. No leaders ever sell. And nothing is better than rooting for misfield. Goals and cheese and turnovers in mac and twenty eight and a half and six games back. It honestly happen in three games. The first three games.

What's the story with this friend. And i'll say the same thing i said to the last two guys I am in charge of putting together. Pick central an entertaining show for gambling purposes against me on other times. There's a person i know. I just don't want i just don't want the beef between you guys to overcome the show because there's a person who is so sensitive that when you come on the show he leaves he is entertaining. He's more entertaining than us. So i have him first and when he's not in you slide in. It's very simple. it's very simple. It's not a gambling when show. Then it's a rico. Show enrico variety hour. That's what it is. No it's a gambling so it's absolutely gambling show and i understand that you're upset that you're not getting right now but you're in today and you're choosing to talk about him.

I'm not gonna sit here and change my day because they can't get over each other and they can't talk to each other. I'm just going to one. And then i'll do the other. That's what i'm going to do. That's a lot easier to do in that than having tried to do both. Yeah and i officially not in a beef. I have too many beefs beefs. Five and a half. Maybe that's just something. You guys live exhausting lives. That's why had one. And i and i was like you know what bury the hatchet. It's i can't. I can't live with her so much going on so much shit happened.

Why am i looking at a website for the The cheyenne mountain zoo. Cheyenne mountain zoo is in colorado springs. Colorado that makes this story about that. That is the only zoo in the world that you can spend a and you walk up hill. The whole day Cheyenne mountain zoo is awesome. But you need your hiking boots on because that is a that is a long day at altitude down there boy. You really team with the information i can. I'm an asshole okay. So you're not an apple new or not you The two the two mississippis to i'm loving it. You guys are doing well together. I'm sure that's gonna end and you'll hate each other soon but for right now it's working and I enjoy the show. Thank you very much to apologize to us bro. You think it's going to know you think it's going to Right we were we need to. I need a little bit more research. The first state. I said that probably we need to do more research. I think there's something called. Zeus somewhere in wyoming. We'll talk about that. He commented on the denver thing. I've been to that ameristar blackhawks colorado. I played a lot of poker. There got poker. Action is beautiful. I'm really pumped at sports gambling. Going there that's a gaming property. I plan on going out there and spend it's time for sure if you play poker everywhere pretty much and united states. Yeah i just use poker to get out and travel and see the country and see america. And i love it and i'm telling you man star black colorado the best thirty sixty limit games in the nation period. That's what i've always thought that. I've always thought that that place has the thirty six years Stephan you have your hand raised. That is definitely a zoo in cheyenne. It's like penguins and everything i know. I know the shine mountain zoos in colorado springs. I used to live under it. Fun fact hewlett. What are we doing a soda. No no no. I lived in colorado for one year in high school and i'm not even kidding. I lived under the cheyenne mountain zoo and i went to shine mountain high school for one year. Now you just said that. Now well i think i think why you said that because if you google zoo in wyoming it brings up that they have wyoming toads which is an endangered species at the cheyenne mountain zoo in colorado springs colorado. So i googled. Google cheyenne's zoos. I figured it would be in cheyenne and cheyenne mountain zoo. And that's why. I asked him and then he told me i still think somewhere in wyoming is a place you can go to the zoo. Twenty four hundred zoos in this country folks fifty states. No do the man. We don't say no. I just said fax. No i'm saying that none wyoming can we actually Talk about. I have a couple of questions about the games tonight. Okay on talk about their first games. Obviously do you think the big spreads are. We should be taken the plus team. Because it's everyone's going to be rusty well first of all of spreads is against akron. So you have to treat that one differently like football history. Last year this is more towards toledo and bowling green. Yeah so that even jumped a little bit today from twenty to twenty four. Those are those are i. I'm twenty you ask that i'm looking at my car. I'm playing for the six games. And the two. I'm staying away from our the spreads so i guess in my mind not even thinking about what you just asked. I said my mind told me to stay away from those. Yeah i in. Buffalo is like a big spread. I love buffalo. Pa- coaches great buffalo bills that lines. I remember when me and rico. Nine and a half was nine and a half on monday now. It's thirteen have. I still love. They got. I think we were talking. They have two of their the quarterback. I think's back both are leading rusher back. Love the line I like their coaches mazing. I love kent state the most tonight. I love dustin. Chrome doesn't chrome is the best quarterback and eastern michigan. Who they're playing the breaking in a new quarterback a new leading rusher. They lost their leading passer leading rusher leading receiver. They lost everybody offensively and can stay can score. They've scored five thirty points or more in five straight games. I did some research. And they got tied their top receivers back to. I did a little research on it. Great combination at the end of the year and can't state finished the are very very strong. They had really strong into the year. Do you think do you think you and i are heading towards hating each other. I think i think it's gonna be fun. I think i. I think we're gonna. We're we get along a lot of stuff and has some common ground south stuff but the the old mistake stuff's going to be bloody and i'm here for the blood in the streets on that as i am really pinpoint you as a blood in the streets guy but when it comes to the overall no but with the egbahl stuff i guys feel like. It's a little weird like the egbo is cool and all but you both stink. That's cadillac beauty. I think that's part of what we get along with. Is the common ground of being. You know. Not the elitist. Fan base thing in sec. Because i think what makes a true rivalry so great is when it doesn't matter if you're good or not. Yeah and. I think that's been even talked with a house in michigan. Even though we have been good house has been better. I think that's been even the difference of why or does he just kicked their ass years. Think in ohio. It's almost like if we just had a terrible year of we just smack michigan. We could go to sleep happy. And i think michigan doesn't care much about as much about the game that's why we just beat the shadow them every year and we're just combination being talented and more talented and wanting it more is why we just run it up. No you're always strictly you being a much better football team but it isn't. They wanted the golden pants and just giving it just all these things. we do. were more talented. Obviously but we also wanted more and that is why we win by fifty. Instead of thirty. Ohio state bama and clemson are three teams that i don't think really have rivals right now. They're each other's rivals playing different conferences. They just meet in the playoffs. I think a lot of state michigan hasn't been a rivalry recently a competitor one. Because it's just better than everybody in that part of the country vile definitely not super competitive geraldo teams at the win at some point spare. Even auburn's been feared obama but they beat them. If few for the fact that almost hasn't been nothing years. It's not that big of a deal. It's not that big of a deal. That i guess the fits shale ankle injury. You guys had to break his ankle. You had to do it on purpose. Yeah no one can she. You guys see the the wrestler last week with the knees discussed. Yeah that was rough almost was so young throw me. I didn't say was a video of a wrestler jumping on an independent wrestler jumping off the top rope landing and his his knees folded their own. Way yeah it was. It was gross. It was towel. Which rand was the fucking. Mlb last night that they're just handing out awards while the fucking biggest night in america. I mean the biggest right. It was their gold glove love to do everything to make the stars just not stars. But can't you like someone has to be like. Hey guys. let's move this to wednesday. Let's melissa thurs like to see the fucking bachelor moving their show. I think you should move the fucking gold glove award where no one even ship before. Now they're really not going to give shit all right eight thirty three. So let's get a couple of calls in here and then we will go to break. And we'll break down the mac when we come back a lot of law soccer here. We got pack. Twelve pack twelve is coming back this week. I'll take that one. I got brett in new york. Wants to make a pack twelve pick. Go ahead brett. I guess Looking at the usc arizona state game. And i'm pretty sure the kickoff here for money and over there. I think has to go under those guys are gonna be have sleep so just wants to Yeah it's it's very interesting. Playing essentially nine. am games. Thank you thank you very much for the call. I haven't factored that into my my question. Right i keep saying on tv. They're playing noon games. I've sitting there. They're gonna play at nine. Am ar under. That's what the caller said. I'm asking us do you think that's screams under. I don't know if i think it's one of those. That it it on on the service that might say that but you could also argue the other way and say the defense might be slow. The i think the defend might be slow. I don't know and also doesn't give them any chance to go out that night you play it like one o'clock you could kind of get yourself your plan planet nine. Am you're going to bed at like some. These players are going out college. Football players are going before what they're lockdown out. There lockdown surely practice drank before football every ever know college. Football teams are in hotels the night before especially right now and they could get a drink no matter what i don't think that's gonna starter stopped based on this when you have something at nine. Am do you drink fucking. It's not a crazy fucking holiday going out. They're not going after the game right before the new. That game is better. If you don't get upset that i state when we would play noon games you'd always see the players at the club at the bar that night but when they played like seven thirty at night they don't get to go out and say all schools. You play a lot of prime time games so when you get that noon game for them it'll be nine. Am but in this case you get like a noon game. You're ecstatic to go out that night after the game the friday night before any calls. We're all game. You're not gonna see a player out in that town. I'm just telling you they find. They don't have to be out there. Will they a drink in their hotel room. That could drink at their apartment. I'm telling you that happens. I mean they. They might begin some pussy. But i don't think they're drinking. I feel like these guys drink. I'd rather drink to get pushed. You'll you can't be having you can't be having sex before the before the games they can. That's night before testosterone. My high school coaches say. That's all that wasn't a cause for concern that time for me right. That wasn't really on your code suffering high school much. Yes and no. I'm good coach. Anyone on this show was getting there. You go to the coach. Hey coach i did not get pussy last night all right. Thanks to have some confidence. That's you know what. That's why i'm not getting any girls coach told me not. Let's get one more call in here in michigan. We'll talk about the akron. Zips go ahead. Todd guys Yeah i just want to talk about the game tonight. So i really like akron. Plus twenty and a half plus. It opened up plus seventeenth. Done that all the way to plus twenty and a half now. I think westerns going to win. Easily but western has zero defense. They haven't had a defense. Pj flick left in two thousand sixteen. And i really see akron. Being able to put up a good amount of points. Nice to just keep it within that number. That seems to me like you like the over. I also like the over. And i also like akron over sixteen and a half point Akrons in akron is a tough a tough memory. It's hard to put your money on a team that went. Oh and twelve and lost so many games by so much last year. I haven't talked about it publicly enough. When i when that whole jack mac thing i've with akron. I called my father much. My dad bet sports as well put me onto it as a child. My dad I call about that game. I didn't move apartment sex week. He didn't help me move. I love how you say. I haven't talked about it publicly. Like you're talking about some sort of a sexual scandal in your past talking about drug use guys skies. This is not something that i would normally talk about but I told my dad about line and he wouldn't help me move the next week. We'll because i told him. I was like yo shits happening. Cocoon and then he was like yo they know show you tell you was going to help you move. No he was like yeah. I'm not helping you move. Okay aren't good. that's fair though. There was no argument from me. I was like you know what you're probably right. I'm we have to lug the ship myself. One thing i look at is the consent. What i'm doing gambling. Consensus percentage of bats on each side. And anytime it's eighty percent or higher. I run for the hills because it's to public. And i'm seeing like eighty five percent on western michigan in this game but that's like a key number. I look for eighty percent of our. I'd get concerned that's a good. That's a good signal. Good flag my my only counter that would be. I wonder what akron's public knows. Look like last year when they were getting blown out every scored like forty three points. Last six games or something. I don't want to miss out on that. Eighty five eighty five percents like yeah 'cause akron fuck instincts and then they show up and stink. I'm gonna be pissed. Yeah but even the public is stupid. No i know the public but it's also that's not. It's not hard to be stupid when akron what they did last year just to look at what they did all right so we will talk about all of that when we get back. We'll take your calls. We have a couple of calls waiting on the line right now. We will break down action. Everybody's going to be there in philly tonight have and marty and enrico and pick cannon and talk about them action. We'll be right back on pick central. Take the papers. And the get those cast pantheon you To the ac. It's friday in warm asphalt the biggest city in america. And i'm looking at a man who's not on one but he's malleable. He can become. What am i looking at. And we've given up on dan you you're a uruk cube of marble so ready to chisel away the ac we've got Brandon rhone said. He needed a personal day because of some national news. I have no idea what he's talking about is pretty sad. Take care of kids very upset. So couldn't imagine raging raising a kid at a time like this. How do you tell your child at georgia flipped. Yeah i'm gonna own until we get a coffee mia coffee. Does anyone want one. And then i'm going to hang. I think most seven-year-olds. Oh no georgia flip. Think he kevin meryl trump launch. Guess yes. I'm going to get very politically astute. You keep staring at me. Talk about a florida. Georgia line One of the one into the way. I would've predicted the opposite.

What can we do to to get you guys on what can be and i own coffee right. And that's what that's the most classic. I'm not on one by saying i'm on one visit. You don't worry. I'm just going to the concert with roger as friends. The only the only political statement. I have about this past week was there is a guy who tweeted it at like eleven o'clock on tuesday night. Maybe more ten o'clock tuesday night. Saying i bet. Big cat is crying in his wife's arms right now and then. I went to look for tweet this morning. And he deleted his his whole accounts whole account. That's the only thing i ask for. That made me chuckle. Were you crying. In someone's arms were handicapping. Football on tuesday turns out he was wrong on many accounts. I just love the. I was so wrong. Delete the whole thing leading. That's what they do. They just make whole accounts just to go at a specific person and they get called out once in. They're guns though. This was kind of the perfect election literally are gone so i think gonzo did that to me. Yeah yeah this was the perfect election in terms of If you're like an apolitical political person watching everyone meltdown as auspey swings. Were like you had meltdowns from everyone. I thought it was hilarious. Watching people discover gambling lines and ultimate indicator when trump started going up his gaming odds. Were better now. Talking about deport. Noy but yeah. But trump trump called lex. That works for me. I was like minus whatever. That's the holy shit he's gonna win. Trump has got it. Independent outside is getting dragged right now online but i will defend him in the fact that like he truly just wanted to be. I on anything. Didn't matter in that moment he was going to call. If if if joe if christian doors what's her name joe dorgan jo jorgensen jo jorgensen had been the odds favourite right then. He would have called her. He should've aimed his sights lower. He should've called like alabama for trump. Yeah yeah. I'm going to be the first one. I'm calling it right. He should bernie. Sanders has gotten reelection. vermont. Yeah yeah i'm calling it yes. That's our political talk. Good talk all. I had something. Yeah awesome people. No i have no man. Your silence speaks volumes. Connection was incredible office.

What you say you do cool things a lot. You implied that it was a lot. Coolest thing equals thing. You did all week. I was on my first podcast when you walked into day. Portnoy's fucking office. This is that i forgot. Those this week was that this week was monday. Dams tuesday believe it could have been monday. Also let's do that. Friday's what's cool thing you did this week.

That's and that's pretty cool. Cool man shit. I haven't done anything. Cool really during the am trying to think The the lamest thing i did this week was i updated my bitmojis haircut. It will still long delay. The fact that you use snapchat at all no for the ordinary layman. You use my fantasy. League is. that's how we converse snapchat is that not. Everybody has an iphone. Yeah why what's the problem with conversing over not everyone having an iphone. You can't like name the group it's not that's it. That's only if somebody like reacts to a message sucks. Oh yeah yeah nick. Toronto laughed at. Let's let's get rid of that. Stop reacting to text message or do not to. You always been really bad bad taste bad. Take because agree there. I would. i think what you're getting at. And i agree with this portion of it is the over reactors but that's all reacting is a necessary evil to end conversations to give the thumbs up and then don't say anything and then it's over and you give me a thumbs up. I'd rather have nothing. No i think it's a good way to show that you saw the tax right. Okay i'll do it with pictures a lot. Yeah where it's like. you know. Okay you can do the love and you can do the ha right but in on instagram. No just do no. Don't do instagram double tap in heart. Oh you can like something. That's kind of. I also sending providence providence. They can see that. You saw dea and don't don't just send a single emoji. I like to do what. I like hearts early. Fire emoji or like a laugh emoji. See you're thinking of nothing. You can respond to that. You're thinking about this the wrong way though because like i do i've one group tax with a bunch of my friends that i i have a rivalry with one of my friends and i will thumbs down everything he says. That's all stop down on his ass cal just thumbs down for if you're going at this. If he says a joke that you don't thinks funny you just question it. that's good. Yeah that's why. I love the youth. Owens the man you keep us young. Yeah you gotta think about it differently. Katie you are right over on wrong. No but the overreacting that pisses me off. Hand love everything. I said like yeah like like someone like if i'm on my way my way my way thumbs up you know that you're expecting them right. Yeah or like yeah like. Thanks for that. Thanks for doing that today. I am taking a back. It's a necessary evil to we're eventually going to be conversing in emojis and like thumbs up in ha-has there will be no conversation anymore which i'm all for. You won't get to that point. I want to get to that point. I don't want to talk to anyone yet. How he thumbs up the ha ha heart emoji the haha the thumbs up of the You're going to be a layer is going to be a tower of emoji.

Welcome welcome welcome. Thank you back. Thursday on c. c. k. the whole gang's back together Do you what do i gotta push to get a gentleman. Tv's sound skype. So we hit him up We hit him up. And he didn't pick up jared. I'm here the close it out yesterday because we're doing starting nine and then they called and i it was like you could hear it on the phone. I got see that beautiful muggy yours. I got see i got to see the twinkle in your eye. I gotta see the smile upon the face. I wanna see rocket his glory smirk. Liger that you know what that that is the look of a boy who's in the that's a look of a boy who's in love and and what's the opposite of what this is requested love. I suppose i think it's well it usually unrequited when you love someone and they are not showing it back. I think andrew is the smitten kitten. Kevin i'll let you tell the tale. Because i don't know what you want out there and what you want private jared but there's a lot to tell there is a. There's one rule that i've always followed here on c. c. k. and that has Provide too many details on ongoing relationships. Gentlemen never asked he never tells but let me set the scene for those who are just tuning in today a couple of days ago. No a couple months ago. Jared has told the world that we talked about celebrity crushes. And who's your coming back years year. I it was from twenty nine thousand nine. I said i had a dream. That i got andrea russets number and then i woke up and was super stuff so jared picked you know. His number one celebrity is was somebody kind of attainable. And obviously that's how it's playing out but you know when people say you. Megan fox or take beckons sale. Or you know all these megastars. Jared was smitten for a youtube sensation. And now a singer named andrea russet and He has done creepy things like. Dm or that. He loves her constantly on Nonstop on instagram. He tweeted at her here. And there and then and so this has been an ongoing kind of joke slash conversation and here and there she would like a tweet or reply to something here in reply to someone else with a tweet. Jared on a tweet but then this week. We made first contact. Something happened and and what i. I though by the way i love this shit this is what like me and my friends particularly one other friend. We're like chicks when it comes to this stuff like i love to workshop text i love to think of. Here's how we're going to get her to give you number. Here's what here's what you should do to get her to take her out on a date all this shit. So this is. I love this. I i eat this up so two days ago. Three days ago this point. I don't know what it was. We what was the first she said. I'm looking for a boy to be a music video and the rocket was like halloween boy. I could be on a plane right now. She she replied and she showed some interest. Then we come on the radio show and we start work shopping ideas and the rocket. Says you know what she's really been into the election. I'm going to take a picture with i. After i go. Vote after you voted for. Joe biden. right. Jared you had the i voted sticker and you took a picture of that. And she replied. Now that's sexy man. I i got jared saying kevin like get this kevin is e the that sexy and jared leans in and says like i'll be on a plane ten minutes ago and then then again. We're text on the side. I said you gotta slide. Now's the time to sliding get to the next level because there was also this concern that maybe she was just like looking for a guy in a video or maybe she's just doing some twitter fund for some cloud and some followers. Because it's like you. You know you have your own following so like let's. Let's try to make it personal because you want it to be that way so you slide and i'll let you take it from here because i don't know what you want to tell them what you don't though i mean all i said was i'm just gonna leave this right here and i put the number there what's goes no fucking around cut right to the chase. Here's the digits do what you wanna do with the vape. I'm just gonna leave this right here. Which is i think a great move of ballsy one because she could you know what she can do. She gets okay. I'm gonna leave that right there but yeah breaking news. She didn't. She didn't leave here so last night. She tweeted that she wanted like a hug. And the so the first one. The first time that we talked on twitter was because she asked for the boy in the music video and i said was hey and then last night. She tweeted that she wanted to hug. So i was just like. Let's try to running backs. Hey that's the power sweep and tech mobile whatever. Just play again running back so to her credit she just copied her tweet from when she replied last time she was like. Don't don't get my hopes up if you're not in la with okay so when you sent me that again. I i was like already saw this tweet like three days ago. I as you both hoppy only play. She's ready to jared. How old is she twenty-five okay. Good good. I was like really hoping that you know if you were like yes. She's nineteen hundred fuck. She'll be twenty six next summer So she's a libra. She'll be twenty six next summer on july twelve. So i mean the watching a budding romance folks. Yeah so like she basically just ran the play like she responded with two this year before she was like my hopes up so then i responded with my tweet from her last week and i said i can be on a plane ten minutes ago and then she said that's fair. And then i cough check your. Dm's cough oh so. That's probably where she did. Like that was actually a smart move by you because she probably didn't see it up until you said that girl like that who either has dm's close gets a lotta dm's like she probably gets a ton of dm's i guess and then sees that now I said to jared we get our our conversation. I said i said well. Did you send a picture of your dick yet. Goes jared goes. No would you say it was so heavy. Cracking up he goes. I'm going to do a video of me. Doing pull up shirtless in the door with my dick hanging out of my boxers. Oh my god goes on a thursday mother fucking thursday obviously were keeping it. Pg here because it's it's for love it's not for not for sexist for love right now. I like the second that i'm in a position to be like. Hey can i. I like to do that. I'll go and i'll take a date. Well that's what i was gonna say. Is you know you've alluded to it a couple of times. You know what i think. I think you have to be on a plane ten minutes ago. But what are you still doing here. I think it's too aggressive to just go. Because then she feels obligated. Charite extremely joking over here. Do not get on a plane flying. Could you imagine that like the love stories where it's like your window holding up the fucking radio. Only i won't be doing that. That's from from jared. We're just going to i guess. Oddly enough crazily enough. I think you're beyond moves you know. Now it's just like if you guys are talking you're talking. Yeah so i don't think it has to be calculated shit anymore. It's just like you have my number. You tweeted your tax semion texan you and then maybe you do the pull ups with the checkout. I don't know. I think. I think the rocket approach does not work here. Like we're going to go i. I'm going to help me twenty. There's there's the boyfriend jared jared jared. There's the rocket there's boyfriend jared and now we're onto a fourth version. Which is the andrea russet potential. Jared boyfriend which. I don't think anybody knows even you. And even her what's going to come next. Love can make you do some crazy things. Kevin so i. I don't even know what happens. What are you thinking right. What do you what do you. What's your prediction for how this actually goes. I think that this is just as blossom. What happened so. I showed you the tweet that i have prepared and i told her i was like. Hey i all right. I have some thoughts about this. If we're talking about things that are maybe too aggressive so funny though. It is funny and you are. I think it works because you have. Your ties is back into what she originally asked right. So so i think you need to okay. That's a great point so that needs to be presented in such a way. That's like pay. Here's my audition tape. Nah so jared did was when we talked about it a couple of days ago his his idea or she was looking for a boy to be in the music video and jared said last time there was a music video it was this guy like choking her and grabbing her and kissing her early goes aggressive. So jared deep. Photoshop deepfakes his face onto that guy in the video. So it's jared lanc. She's laying on a bed where their head over the edge and jared on his hands and knees like crawls up to her and does like the spiderman upside down kiss and i forgot that the whole premise here was that she was looking for video. Boy i thought you were just like hey his video me with my face. Photoshop does kissing you. And i was like whoa buddy but i think you say to her like hey like i know you're still looking for that video boy like you know. Here's my here's my. Here's what i could bring. Here's here's my audition. Here's what it looks like with me. Then i think it's funny and sexy and cute and like ties in. I forgot that. And i remember. You sent me that. I was like. Oh i don't know if that's the move that might be but now. Now now now knowing the kremlin has gone knowing it's a folk the full premises. Actually the move. So why don't you. Why don't you send that baby off. Why don't you fired off right now. Why don't you fire it off right now. We get it because you know what. I don't wanna put you on the spot but it's also when you do these things if you're ever chasing a girl or a guy i guess but usually it's guy chasing the girl and you're asking your friends and you're like what should i send you trying to craft it. You gotta give it some thought but then you also just got fucking do. You'll sit there and you'll stare at your phone and you'll rewrite it and delete and rewrite. It'll be awesome. Be eight pm. You'll be like what. What have i been doing the last six hours. You gotta just do it. So why don't you fire that baby off and we'll see if we get some results may be made me. Why don't we do this. What do you say thousand centigrade. Let's right you gotta just fuck in. You gotta give it some thought. You don't wanna be hasty with it but you also gotta just be like all right. I'm doing it. It's one of those things that so out of left field little little Out even there's nobody doing this ranjha russet. Nobody's making their own fucking videos. No one's being a little self deprecating and weird about it. No one's being the no one's being unique like this you got to say. Here's my audition real. Here's music video. What do you think. Say say what's the day road. Look say here's my audition tape. What's the day rate for this video. Amy have to do something. I have to do something with the video. Because i ask wigs for it last night before. She had responded to my. Hey check your. dm's having having that by the way. I've done it over. Here's what time. I i had more make a full fucking music video for caitlyn one year whereas like my face. Her phase dunkin was in the mix and sent it off as a birthday gift. I didn't have to do a goddamn thing right. Thanks more like four hours. You know but yeah you got like some of the best graphics guys in the goddamn world at your disposal and now andrew gets benefits that. Why don't we get to call in but some at some point. Yeah yeah point. Yeah yeah yeah where. I see this going like i do. Think at this point like we're going to have to go to el all the time. Dallas is out there and we do shit out there like even if i don't go out if say hey let's go on a date and i go there for that reason. I will be in la again. And i'm sure at some point. I'll be like hey i'm in. La it would be funny if we took a picture together so we can tweet it and at least make it look like just you know what you gotta do is go out to la and not see her you know like yeah but i'm busy like i got. I got my. I got my schedule filled up. I don't have time for you. i'm not. I'm not yet. So that's the move to a guy. I disagree. I think that's why you flip it a little bit. But i never had anybody. Anybody like don't do that. Don't do it. I'm gonna listen. Should be on this on all right. Fuck and then there's other times i know that's the point. There's a million other. But i'm not. I'm telling you jerry don't do that. I disagree. I think that i it. It just shows enough flake. She draws me. You've done enough groveling. I think maybe it's time to to show that you got your own your own. What you should do is not make it a big deal that you're going to see her. You should be already in la and be like hey by the way. I've been in la for a couple of days. Like i've got some time like would you want to get a drink. Not just not tell her. I mean i would. I would go about your business. I would live your life and if it happens short but if it doesn't i'd be like yeah. no listen. i mean. I'm film on my show and then like i gotta get back to work so maybe next time right. I don't go to la tell come back. Don't do that. No that's what you meant no go to l. a. and be like. Oh i can't see you. I'm in la. But i have like five shows. And then i got back to york thought you meant have him go to la and then come back and be like no bnl a maybe next time out here will link up because i got. I got all this shit to do. I don't know. I still don't know if that's the move. We got taylor from long island. Who was a part of it. T was walking us through his thoughts as well and now the ship has landed. Taylor ship actually blasted off. The rocket is in full the rockets in orbit right now. What do you got. All the hype. Train funding well scared. Yeah man that's also the fun of this is like you get to live vicariously like we're all textile rested right now you know. Oh yeah. i'm pretty. I'm pretty Pretty poor in life not not really boring but This is pretty exciting. For jared man. You just beat yourself. That's that's what. I'm just trying to taken through this last couple of days. Listen to the show and today just be yourself. And it's like i guess the whole route of like trying to get her on a date. I guess you know flying out there saying you're fucking busy and then just grab a quick drink. I could get dinner or you know. You don't want to throw all your cards on the table right away. Maybe you know I got enough time to smash out at the motel. And then i gotta go back home that maybe you you know what you gotta do. I'm a big a big fan of early on the relationship. You've gotta show you gotta show who you are. You don't wanna be some guy you're not and then six months in you're like well now i've like created this persona. You gotta show with the rocket. A little bit to quote taylor. He did say strike while the iron saw man. The iron is on fuck and fire. I walked in. Say it blazing. We've made progress every single day. Like it's been like three straight like movement. There hasn't been a day where something hasn't happened. So it's kinda just i guess. At this point we see what happens and again. I think I i have a good gauge on. I guess like how things go like via text conversation. So it's like you can get a read like is she actually interested or is this something. That's just funny because it's on twitter so we'll see we'll find out. Love is the air taylor. I love it. We're going to the hype circle right here at the three men gang. Four five five-man with with avery. I mean. I wish i'm super happy. Are you in all right. I tweeted immedi said holy shit with iraq emoji. I was so upset. I missed it. I was so pissed about that. Stupid ass shoot avery. Text me the day after. He's like dude the show. You missed it. Now i know. But taylor taylor is. The is the hype circle ringleaders so not will keep you keep you. In the mix shares rocket keeps the people updated cool. I it's been cool to see like every single day. Just fucking. Hundreds of tweets supporting. Yeah people want to see it happen. Works to our everybody like. I said the other day the joke. It's cliche now to be like. Oh jared remember the time you saved the baby's from you know the the puppies from the burning building and you help the old lady cross the street like that obviously is is like played out but it still does show like that girls by like hundreds of people are tweeting about this guy like in in support of him and i know one guy who was proud of you dominican. Dylan you gotta be loving. Dylan dylan how you feel about our boy right now. This is It's quite the accomplishment. God deli key to that. That's a baddie like you got you got you really is. She's a fucking rocket she's she's something. Listen listen i'm tom this. Everyone's giving advice in this analysis yet. The rocket is half dominican. Man we given them that advice. You santo domingo shot out a little south of your hips can move and nothing else. Now what do you think though you're going to have to hit her up and be like so You know when are we adopting a dominican shortstop that me and you can raise to become a a major league superstar. You think she's going to be down with that. I think so. Yeah i mean career going like she's probably not gonna wanna take time off to be a mom so it's like right. I got this like like you know you're both you're both superstars. So it makes sense that we gotta get cut some corners here and and you know we'll get one of dylan's like long lost cousins or something who's out there right now fielding grounders with a fucking milk carton hidden bottlecaps with a stick. And we're going to be that the bottle caps shit dude. It's impossible what are you crazy. Dominicans doing nothing bottle. You just have to see two three times when he got it. But it's still it's boring really. It seems so fucking hard to me. I bet you'll be able to do it like it took like two or three times. You read the spin off of it and then you'll be able to hit it all right. I'll take your word for it but but yes so There when you this has got to be one of the better examples of you know like shoot shot and going after. We'll see where it goes very very. We're not no. But here's the thing dillon. We were talking about this for a long fucking time. It's very funny to see how that actually unfolds. Where it's like some of these. Things are actually possible. Anything's possible you got. You got to start doing that. A little bit right now. See i I i don't want Star that's for the rocket. That's that's that's for a certain type of guy i don. I don't want that nike like shit. I don't need an interesting. I felt like i remember you doing it like me me that that's the wretched fuck enhance well. My bachelorette girls christina showman. That that she her. Yeah the russian chick every now and then. I just like throw her. Dnb only when are we getting married. And she just last back. But that. but that's that's about. As far as i would go on the star meter if you will. I don't need i. I wouldn't be opposed to it. I'm not to say no. But i'm also not chasing down a celebrity. Your own right. I got i got too much fucking stress drama if i had to juggle international pop star or whatever andrew going to end up. Although i don't know that's what you need is someone who's like i got i'm busy. I you know when. I when i got my kids and i got shit to do. She's like well. Yeah i got even more to do. But i i'm in it for for something more normal but the but you know the rocket is the rockets. Got got some swags. You're going say east coast news. We could take anywhere girl. We want to only live out there. I saved them in indiana. Well yeah but she's now she's gonna live in la girl. Yeah right right. But i always say to fights when we interview East coast guys. You can always tell like there's a immediate difference between like a guy from jersey or a guy from new york and like the conversation just flows better and they got a better sense of humor and they can take a joke and it's just all much more normal than the guys who have been like in la for ever the point that they have like become la guys can attest to that yeah. It's just like nothing. There's wrong with them. It's fine but like the confidence level is different. Yeah it really. They've got they've got the better bodies but we got better. Just doesn't i mean. Of course that helps provide near when yeah with with girls. It's just not nearly as important as as like a if you're an east coast guy who can like like if you're telling us dudes with like fucking twelve packs roy. Yeah it's normal and then like you see someone that doesn't look like that and you're you have the less impressive physique in and look you're not when i'm used young female all over fucking samba. And vince vaughn instead like they fucking to preempt but also but also. Let's not forget that you know the rocket Have you seen those fucking pipes. I mean jesus christ now back in the offseason workout regimen. So i mean how could you. How of course this girl's into it. You see the fucking sleeve. You see him working. The videos just happened to be floating around recently right. You can work it out. I an asshole tweeted that. That's just that's crazy that's circulating around again. You know we're doing three day. Yeah i'm back in like six days a week like we're back in the brock listener training right now. That's a rookie. He's ready to go ready to go. I told you i got. I got a channel twenty thirteen boyfriend. Jared i know that he's still in there somewhere. We gotta figure out what the blueprint is. We've got to figure out wait. Let me just say this. I feel like when we've gone over some of your history. The boyfriend jared isn't always the most confident and the most successful. I don't know if we want that point where we wanted to twenty twenty four hundred wire. That's the guy who was like crows. Your friends are banned girlfriend and stuff. Yeah that was two thousand nine long. What all right. So two thousand. Thirteen jared boyfriend. Jared is is is that was like you were a kid in two thousand thirteen when i was huge though like that was. That was a different phase of jared thirteen jacked. He just he just want to be strong at. That doesn't know mentality. I'm saying like you gotta you gotta have the mentality of like all right in this. This is if you're going to go back to that. You can shave your head and start dressing like you didn't saugus they like it's a completely different person. Now it's it's it's that's why it's boyfriend jared point l. like what that's what i mean. Go to the next level. What does glow of jared. Who's also boyfriend jared. Look like what do you have to say. Although part of me does want you to go back to scumbag saugus do you think of like your final form will go back to like sandals and socks and basketball shorts and scumbag saugus. That's what you want to settle down one day and be married to andrea and adopts them dominicans and go back to being scumbag saugus. So why don't you just do it. Now it's you got a picture of your adopt and from the right spot. Yeah right yeah listen makes you get the right one. Where where would you recommend this one we can. We can go to some of the michael something now. We got a lot of different. Go to fucking puerto rico. You won't get your speaking of Tonight new episode of answer. The internet out with luis gomez louis j gomez fucking thanks allegiance gangs. And he. He's talking about he's puerto rican and he started puerto ricans on a ti tonight. And it is so goddamn funny tonight. Nine pm check the drop you will do you use specifically we'll fucking love it. I don't wanna give it away and that franco back in the day on the radio. Fucking legendary coach is awesome. Give it give it a listen tonight and then call back tomorrow. Don't think all right good. Let sanford north carolina discoveries and has had some advice for you jared. What's up sam okay. Jared do not send that video. That is a terrible mistake. But i get you want to send it to get. Kevin ended up mistake. Because everything's in the public already. So get kevin to send it out and be like. Hey jared i found your audition video and then you can be like. Oh man i think this is taking it a little too far. But then it'll be out there and she'll be thinking about it you you're not deliver responsible for so you think it's too much for him to be sending it. Yeah it's it's like borderline. Michael scott photo shopping himself in the video. He doesn't do it. You gotta get yes. But here's the thing like the whole thing joke. God won't be jared but the the whole thing like he's not sending it being like look how sexy and hot i am. It's like look so. He's making a joke himself seriously. Then i get what you're saying. But i i think that him being like funny dude. Who like this is like a one. Big joke sentence said this is my addition tape. That's safe yeah that's the whole point. You find yourself. I got you but i think. Ac will say that like even the one percent that it could come off as creepy like you don't want to risk that like you don't want to risk putting off some creepy nine fellas creepy sailed a long time ago. A fair enough fair enough. That's true got The other thing would be for him saying when to go out there. Get him to be like. Hey look in three weeks. I'm going to be out there. If you're still thinking about this. Maybe we can work something out and then you could go to that. Sorry i was too busy yada yada yada. Too busy is a bad move. I really do i. You don't want that to happen to you. Well yeah. Of course. I don't i wouldn't i if i if somebody who is clearly me. Here's the thing. It'd be different if jared was like. He admitted he's been creepy. It would be completely different. It always just like being like well right but like if he was like a normal like dm exchange and a guy was okay. I'm too busy. Like maybe would be different. Like she would know he was purposely trying to big timer. And i just would never speak again. I don't think so. Oh the guy fifty times saying i love you and it's like oh sorry but that's kinda the point and i've got to even it out. I think the show presley big timer. You had plans to go out there and do your thing. The problem is directional radio talking. Just us address. That was now but if it was like oh sorry. I didn't have time to see you and it's like on the fifth. You guys spend thirty minutes talking about how you were going to. Big time may fuck you really big time as much as it's like. I just doing what i normally do. This is what i'm gonna do. Here's my plan. I don't care who you are if you find out that somebody that you're interested in and or have hooked up with when you are when you're in the same place and they just didn't tell you like you're like what the fuck gets on a good thing like why would that. Why would that make you wanna be with somebody more. Because that's how the game works for girls twenty-five five. That's exactly what's going to work for a young girl who has guys like fawning over all the time. They'll definitely be like well. I'm not used to this. It's bad idea. what are you gonna do. What was your plan my plan. I'm really just going to wait. Until i have a reason to go to la. Like if i i like. I said i go out there a lot. So if i have a reason to go out to la then i can be like. Hey like i'm going out to la like january like whatever. I've got this this and this the do like i'm free on that thursday. Like if you wanna get drinks or something like it's not like i'm coming out there for because then that sets the expectations too high. Then it's like oh like he's coming out here like just for me and like what if i don't like them like that's weird so you just i'm going out there anyway. Not a big deal. If if if you don't even have time to go get drinks. Then i'm still out there for the reason that i came out there for. That's what i mean. Just do you and if it happens it happens if it doesn't you know no sweat because on the fucking rocket said break when we come back we'll take some more calls Into it for the rest of the day bring it through. Three o'clock here could get lucky.

to find out just who it is tomorrow on the show we're going to go from the Oh cool to hear that Ronnie and and about how old were you when you first became a dad and how to becoming a father kind of changed your perspective on life it's been a wonderful experience and more importantly we've been able to empower a lot of young people and I know that a lot of people gave me that you're a rookie at a lot of things and and the reason that you're a rookie is that there's just so many things that you've never experienced and certain things and and and so I I'm hopefully kind of allow them because they're examples that they've said that ah I always find even today am I doing that with my kids and my finding ways to making sure that they are getting all the did you think about what the teenagers do today and you think about all the equipment you think about all the relationships in before you know it you really with he is a ten time Pro Bowler in eight time first team all pro he is on the NFL seventy fifth anniversary team the nineteen eighties and the nineties all decade went from there playing professionally again with the raiders having a abby success there and then in there to to the San Francisco Forty niners play with the forty niners ended up having a great run a lot of success there and so I'm you know I look at my parents today there's still alive they're great people there people that enticed tough love is is is is what it is it's really tough love and and they've been able to give me a lot of tough love opportunities and and and trying to find a path that they can forge path that they can own and and focusing on yourself and and and the question in life is you know which I always try to think about is you know how are you going to be the best enjoy it was and and I think what you learn about that is that you know how lucky we are that we stood oh can have the ability to be a champion as a dad even though things could be you know challenging for the ways that we were and that's what kind of what my parents are done with me they constantly been you know gray supporters but they've been you know great friends in and you know truly care about their community and care about a lot of things and I just continue to try to model wildlife around how they act how they still do as and and the things that we went through and I think that's summit is a perfect way in a perfect understanding of you know knowing I can kind of model my life around some of the things that they that that they do and and things that they have done which has been really amazing who's she's twenty four wow yeah okay you'll have four myself my mind go from five to thirteen so I'm just getting myself ready for teenage years I if you could just a minute here to hit my

that you have not only response entreprenuer and been involved a lot of different businesses and more importantly I have foundation and I started in nineteen eighty nine call it all starts helping kids a people not really understanding how to use their you know mindfulness in the US their ability to control their having me involved which I think has been really amazing is that I've learned a lot she's learned a lot and then we've learned a lot from it he struggled with to hear Kerri Walsh talk about some of the challenges of being a mom and and being an athlete and that we all have our flaws but we all are trying to be better dead in in the building communities like that and have relationships you find is that we all have you know our abilities to kind of push ourselves we also have our abilities where we and we can talk about it with you know a select group of people but if you have a mental problem or you have difficulties who do you sit with so I mean it was cool to see you know things that are dedicated to data I know you just Recently spoke at the Dad two point zero summit what was that experience like for you it's been tough on me they they allowed me to fail they allowed me to understand that you know you can't always get it right and Oh yeah well let's right here Ronnie how many kids do you have and how old are they yes oh I have four kids have Ryan who is anything knowing knowing what Dad's in in in in in mothers and all the parents that are out there where we are I think that that last piece is a really interesting piece and the reason I think it's an

pocket order computer anchored those all the distribution as well so it can be heard on spotify apple podcasts and many more also you can make money with no minimum listenership it's in DC I they I didn't see kids played with pass and all of a sudden here I am and I'm like wow this is so mazing so cool and and yet eh you know him and a lot of the NFL's that I have on the show here is just 'cause it's a difficult decision for a lot of parents out there and whether or not to let their kids play tackle football so with me I said Okay and and you know we we both decided that you know there was going to be a point where he was going to be able to enter into a high school in and be able to play the game and so he he didn't put pads on before then he played with his buddy down took some time sturdy enough strong enough to be able to play but I would never trade the experience of being young men the question is really around when you start and I think that that to me in today's game it's really centered around but I think they should learn about the game of life of having great relationships in knowing that using count on people to support the challenges the difficulties and I think that the game of football is about the relationships in the friendships it's it's not about this gift of being able to take care of our kids so yeah I think the kids should learn about the game of Football Pratt and I'm I'm I was pretty tough you know they my my wife in kids always said there goes sour you know one the aspirations but to if you think that you're worried and you think that you should not allow that to happen out what we see in terms of the competition I've always felt that there's nothing better of being around great aww that's one of the great things that we did see with the does you know fatherhood programs that they had a bunch of Russell football on the other hand Ryan who when you when when he was younger and coming out of high school I didn't the reason that boy scouts is so amazing is that around young men you get a chance to understand the women that were there sharing being vulnerable and caring and talking allowing all of us to become better at hopefully grow when he got bigger and and became you know a linebacker of all things and and ended up playing the national football league it didn't beep you know take the across precautions and find yourself saying you know what there's going to be a time when I feel like he's urgent lodge and so I had my moment of being you know tough but I I have to do certain things you have to have chores you have to keep your locker clean you have to be able to huddle and do the huddle the right way like I was I enjoyed the discipline of make sure my kids Kinda saw the same things that I experienced what in fact you didn't get your job done so they they're great lessons and in sports provides that and and being a dad you punish a lot of people on the field but what type of punishment did you hand out as a dad what type of disciplinarian where you as a father with the kids growing up you got to remember man I'm military men and learning from them and understanding their issues and understanding the challenges and problems that's you know if if you think about that I chose that because you know instinctively that's kind of the things that I live with I live with a lot of moments where you have to be on time those losses and find ways to deal with those winds yeah very well said and you were one of if not the hardest hitting safety and ever play the game and this is so special yeah talking about sharing his special moment with your kids what was it like to have your family president with you there when you were inducted into the hall of fame on I liked to have great relationships in and have fun and in the lavish love and care and also at the same time no that is amazing heroes amazing leaders amazing people inspired me they challenged me and you know the and and so all those kind of disciplines are disciplines that I tried to share with my kids and more important I tried to share the disciplines of what next to him and it made me realize that there are so many kids that you can you know you can amplify that message to and hopefully and you know it's funny I took my son Isaiah and I took him to the Patriots game when they were playing the giant and it was the I get a chance to see you at the Super Bowl winning the lombardi trophy yeah yeah yeah and you know that's somebody giving you that gift and somebody sharing that with you inspired me and and and now here here I am standing you know we have a guy that's a great garbage man he's unbelievable and we wrote a letter talking about how great he is and and he can point was doesn't have to be a football player you could be the best garbage man and I love it because there's you know the the great part of life is when you have those moments and you're able to share you're able to experience it and you see the season and and we went to the game and we went on the field flip the coin and it was so amazing watching him and looking at I was growing up as a kid yeah very cool and I know you got four Super Bowl rings and I believe you know Ryan would have been the only ones who have been able to see the and I think that sports is meant to have those kind of moments where you know it gets to share with with each other but you also get to learn he's out of little elements and that's what makes you know the relationship of being with whether it's with your daughters or with your sons that made always you are trying and communicating you have a chance yeah right on with that and you have had just incredibly success he would be the the the the kind of man he is today in in the sides that had and so you never know and and he did ah the guy next to you or the person or the girl next to us going to find themselves you know sometimes disappointed on on in how he inspires us and and and and my point is that you know we all strive to be our best and and and it's a great quality the the the sadness and the joy and you know the sadness over losing and the joy of winning and he had a great time a lot of different people in a lot of different ways and you know with all stars we've been able to kind of find a way to empower hiring people to believe that you know your your organization can change the world and so we we help a lot of nonprofits who I don't care if you're a garbage man I want you to be the best at in our member sitting here listening to you I was about twelve thirteen years old at the time and the guys are looking at the whole thing and and and and then you realize that you were once there and and so he had his moment of being but you and help you and and and and whether you win or lose you lose together where you win together and you find ways to you know deal with achievable and the reason it's unbelievable that you're amongst the people that you are the most as you as I was growing up in those winging and to me that's all I wanna do and until one is exhaust life and and try to do as much as you can as like all of us sometimes you're big enough sometimes strong enough in and so I did not play for the people that all they kept doing it and even though the disease was taking their life they just kept playing they kept giving everything Great Deacon Jones he was there and Deacon Jones when I was a kid taking chose that you'd be the best I don't care what you that are startups in trying to get them to see that you know all it takes is an opportunity to help somebody in the service and their kids out there that you know we'll hear and learn that you can be the best and you can be the best at whatever you do and there you see it and be close with it and and and what we what we saw was that things that we see in life sometimes challenges and problems you think you know people that go out and serve to seniors and get them medicines and you can go down all the way bad love is that there will be moments where you're gonNA love and still feel bad because you had discipline and so but star I realized that I'm GonNa try

Can you give us an idea of how you intend to go about these priorities any concrete initiatives of initiatives over a long period of time concerning methods enormous concern occasional poverty and the connections between poverty and many other afflictions and I think trying to get member states to look at those things and see what within those parameters that will to work with others to achieve the whole idea. All members are able to help others times by sure what they have done which is what has not worked and why or what support the will to give to others on a short term basis so it is a whole range of things that can happen if we're able to listen to each other in terms of our needs and our ability to walk together for me to get some problems you will become president of the General Assembly during a time of great distrust between nations. How will you bring them together on the world stage. I want to remind ourselves why this was in the plus plus.

Should we not have relation in south of chaos in terms of ability for example to say pandemics in terms of ability to lose issue even migration and if you issues so when you remind people what might happen and this not not just theoretical constructs this reality that we can draw people to look up and look what might happen if we we do not listen a bit more if cooperate a bit more when we quibble over some of these things are dependent. I remind other in terms of the whole notion that after presented to those members we should shut us to others because could their hair because they also members and they have avoid their things to say we too must listen to it is only through this approach that we're able to achievable do those you've spoken about improving how things are done at the UN what are some of the ideas that you would like to implement some of the discussion which which is all over the place concern how Bettas Oguz able to coordinate their luck to reduce overlap to also learn from what others are doing under reduce noble of Cook.

Do you think it's an occasion to celebrate break multi-lateralism and what it has accomplished or it. It is liberation to celebrate mantra on also to to look at forces that hinder are full achievement of multiple approaches to solving some of the problems do you have any plans for improving gender parody the UN. I think the improvement is really in implementing what we have agreed to that is to Chris Tapes and to also act in a concerted manner to see that no one left behind regardless of gender always order login all elements of representation important agenda subtly given the equality of men and women in south of numbers so this is really crucial and Missions House Sean lead in this it has its this issue but we have seen efforts that are very determined led by the end to make this a very important event and of course Jordan the presidency of three to four we have the opportunity also of dealing with Beijing defy gives us another platform to reflect a club and see whether where would find even more effectiveness of French shortened into equity. I'm going to go back to your second priority. You mentioned education. Can you tell us why it is that it's important for you and how it translates on the ground. Its impact because it's it's really a complex matter. Whoever denied an indication almost everything look at the connection between education and prominent in the kitchen on equality education and I sense of your rights and around the globe we start with more access to education better curricula. We are likely to have less hit. Luckily to better understand luckily but luckily tough quality people are born into second position. It's only education the equalize everything April it is important.

Wants us to panic because our time on this planet is running out. Back in August two thousand eighteen gritter set outside the steps of the Swedish parliament during school hours holding a sign that read school strikes for the climate's every Friday, we will sit outside the Swedish parlance until Sweden is in line with the Paris agreement. We urge everyone to do the same wherever you are now. And Greta is call for action prompted other students to walk at their classrooms and demand change in the name of global warming. Some people don't realize what's happening in some people just they don't care. And they kind of just shoving it away. Ignoring it people in the world of guiding people. Because of inaction by by our government. You know. Compliment to recognize on the verge of did it in. And then only a few months after Greta had started her protest young people all over the world decided to join her a group of students around the world is planning to skip class tomorrow to protest against climate challenges of school students of Steinke protests around the country and around the globe. Students today went on strike for the climate school start for climate has arrived in America. Too small to make a difference. That is the fact is, she has become a bonafide climate change rockstar with constant media, requests. She's reprimanded. World leaders started a movement of hundreds of thousands of students is even been nominated for the Nobel peace prize. It's an honor for me to be here with you today. Together, we are making a difference. We are in the midst of the six mess extension. And the extinction rate is up to ten thousand times foster, though, what is considered normal with up to two hundred species becoming extinct every single day. The rule should. Title, sort. The.

See as our rights, simply carry on. There is no greater threat to our species than the climate crisis in two thousand eighteen we emitted more carbon into the air than any single year in all of human history. The consequences are real and they're happening right now. So today on the show, explore ideas around the climate crisis and what we can do to stop the worst of it because the thing is we are running out of time. So can we save our planet from total disaster? Or is it already too late? Well, forget attuned Berg unless we do something drastic and do it right now. That answer is yes. Here's more from Greta on the Ted stage. To be one hundred. I will be live in the two thousand one hundred and three. When you think about the future today. You don't think beyond the two thousand fifty. By them. I will in the best case not never lived off of my life. What happens next? The two thousand seven to eight I will celebrate my seventy fifth birthday. If I have children grandchildren may, they will spend the day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you. The people who were around back in two thousand eighteen. Maybe they've lost while you didn't do anything for the still time to act. What we do don't do right now will affect my entire life and the lives of my children, and grandchildren. What we do or don't do right now meeting, my generation undo in the future. So when school started in August this year I decided that this was enough. I set myself down on the ground outside the Swedish parliament I- school strike for the climate. Some people say that I should be in school. Instead. Some people say that I should study to become a climate scientist so that I can solve the climate crisis. The climate crisis has already been sold. We already have all the facts and solutions. We have to do to wake up and change. And why should I be studying for future? The soon will be no more. When no one is doing anything whatsoever to save that future. And what is the point of learning facts within the school system when the most important facts, given by the fire science of that same school system kilometers, nothing, our politicians in our society? Some people say that Sweden is just a small country that it doesn't matter what we do. Br things that if a few children, can get headlines all over the world, just by not come to school for few weeks. Imagine what we could all together. If you wanted to. Now, we're almost at the end of my talk. And this is where people you should start talking about hope solar panels wind power, circular economy, and so on. But I'm not going to do that. We've had thirty years of Pepa talking and selling positive ideas, and I'm sorry, but it doesn't work because if he would have the emissions would have gone down by now. They haven't. And yes, we do need hope, of course, we do. But the one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope look for action. Then an only then hope we come. Today. We use one hundred million barrels of oil, every single day. The new politics to change that the owner rules to keep that oil in the ground. So we come save the world by playing by the rules because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change. And it has to start today. That's credit. Tune berg.

157: Test-Optional Policies and Practices
"More than one hundred colleges have adopted a test optional admissions policy in the wake of the coronavirus allowing students to submit an application without an sat for an act score in today's episode I'm GonNa. Talk about test, optional policies and practices college is expensive, but there is financial health available. You just need to know where to find it with her experience in helping her son when. When more than seven, hundred, thousand dollars in Scholarship Money Pam Andrews shares, advice that helps high school students get into their dream college and secure scholarships that will pay for it, parents and deans. This is your place to gain practical easy to follow advice the college process as well as tips from pass scholarship winners, and now here's your host of the Scholarship Shark podcast Pam Andrews. Welcome back to another episode of the scholarship. Shark. PODCAST. I'm Pam Andrews. Your host, and in this episode, I'm talking about test optional admissions. Now, this is a part of our series where I'm talking about sat and act test. In the midst of this global pandemic and I really want students to understand what test optional admissions is and what it's not because although many schools are going test optional because students may not be able to take the test I do want students to understand what it means and really how they should position themselves in the college admissions process. So I'm going to talk with you about what test optional means which. Should your student take and really. What the policies are in how schools really apply a test optional policy Just some general guidelines. So, what does test optional means? Well, it simply means that you do not have to submit a test score when you apply and that's really encouraging because right now you know students may or may not be able to take a test and so because of that over one hundred schools so far have decided to go test optional for students who are lying this upcoming school year. So students who will be attending school the fall of Twenty Twenty One you know many schools have decided to go test optional, which is really Nice. Now, what that does mean is that the rest of your application needs to be very strong. Your grades need to be strong. Your essays need be super strong and your recommendation. So some of those other core pieces really needs to be in place so that you can show your credentials and other ways other than the test score. Now, what test optional does not mean, it doesn't mean that the test is not used in the admissions process. So a Lotta Times students will think. You know they're not going to consider or use it at all. No. That's called test blind and a test blind policy is different from test optional with test optional. If a student submits a score, then the school will consider it when making their emissions decision. If the school is test blind again, there approximately about two hundred test blind schools. It's the school is test blind. Then they don't consider the test at all. You can submit the test, it doesn't matter. They won't consider it at all. But what we're talking about, we're talking about test optional admissions and really schools who were not traditionally test optional schools who are now forced into this condition. This admissions process because of covid nineteen. Now why do college is choose test optional practices. So Pre Cova, D-. Why would a school even consider this? So let me just share three reasons why schools have decided to do this. Normally not because of of course, because of corona virus, but normally. So number one, it allows them to increase their admissions applications when students can apply without having to submit a test score. They find that schools find that they have more applicants. You know more applicants to choose from, and it really does what leads me to number two, it allows them to. Inflate their scores in terms of the numbers of students applying. So now you have more students applying for the same amount of seats, which means you're going to have more rejections or more wait lists, and that kind of gives you that appearance at that school's a little bit more selective because they've had to reject a whole lot more students than they were able to admit. So that's another reason why they do it because they want to Really. Changed their numbers and so by opening up and admitting more students with a you know giving them the option not to submit submit their test scores. It's a way to somewhat inflate the scores in terms of your inflate the data in terms of your at the school's admissions data. And then the third reason why schools tend to t- to go test optional is because of their trying to recruit more students whether that is recruiting student athletes, and so they'll give them the option not to apply with a test score maybe to expand geography. So they'll do that as well, maybe diversity or to admit legacy students. So this is a way that they're able to do that as well. There I'm interrupting today's podcast episode to Tell You about college admissions academy. Now, if you have a high school student who is in the class of twenty, twenty one. Twenty Twenty, two or twenty, twenty, three in college admissions. Academy is for you. We open our doors only a few times during the year, and our doors are currently open for enrollment to learn more about college admissions academy, and how we can help your students not only get into their dream school, but secure scholarships to pay for it, go to our website and get on our waiting list. The website link is www dot. Thus scholarship shark dot com, click on services and Click on college admissions academy. You will then be notified of our next parent information session I, look forward to seeing you there Now I do want you and your student to know a few. Facts when it comes to test optional schools, fact number one, eighty percent of the students do submit test scores. So you know when we look at test optional schools, a large percentage of the students are going to submit the test scores, and what that means is if your student has the opportunity to take the test and they do well meaning that they score at least fifty percent or you know or maybe in the seventy fifth percentile than they really should submit that TESCO score because chances are you know the other applicants are submitting their scores and the second fact is that. You to x your chances of admissions and you four x your chances of earning merit aid, and that's really important because again, you don't want to just get into school, but you want to really get those scholarships and the largest amount of money that students will earn will be at the institutional level. So money at the school level. So again, I, can't stress enough just how important it is for students to prepare for the sat or act, and if given the option to take the test. So let me talk about how schools apply the policy, their test optional policies, and really how they considered moving forward, and there are seven ways. General, that schools do it. So number one, they don't consider the score in the admissions decision, and that's what's called a holistic review. So they're looking at other parts of your student in terms of again there extracurriculars and their essays and recommendation letters courses. So they're looking at other factors other than the test score, and that's typically what students think of when they hear the word test optional that it's not considered at all for admissions. The second way it's practice. Or the policy in a school may be that it's not considered for admissions, but it is considered for placement or academic advising. So you may be able to place a an English one, hundred class or maybe a beginning math course in your major. You know if you maybe take the sat and you score well on the math section or you score well on the the language section or the writing section, you know you may be able to place out of a general, of course. The third way that it's used, it's not required for in state students, but it is required for out of state applicants. So, you may find that school say were test optional. However, if you're out of state, we will require the test. The fourth way is if you have not met or the student if your student has that met the GPA requirement. then they may want a test score. So I'm sorry I really do have GPA cutoffs that they're looking for. and. If your student has not met that, then they may ask for the score to take a look at, you know to assess kind of how your student does. academically. Then, number five, some programs in some majors will require it and what I mean by that, it's typically stem majors. ENGINEERING MAJORS MAY BE PRE MED nursing, they may require a test score. So although it may be a test optional school. If your student is applying for a stem field, you WANNA. Double check to see if the school is requiring a test score for admissions. And number six, sometimes they will require. So you may not have maybe test optional school in terms of emissions, but they may take the sat to test. So the sat subject tests and subsitute that for the AP exam or the IB exam. and. Then finally, I mentioned a few minutes ago that although the school may be test optional for admissions. They may use the test score to determine merit award at that school. Aright. So let's talk about when your students should submit a test. So, if we're looking at non selective schools and that is a school that accepts at least forty percent or more of the applicants. Then, if Your Student Is Above the fiftieth percentile, they should submit it for a non selective school to be considered for merit aid if the school is Jenner's for merit aid. Okay. So there are lots of factors and lots of things to consider. But if Your Student Is above the fiftieth percentile, then they definitely should submit it for a non selective school for for merit for non selective schools for admissions. If they're in the fiftieth percentile than they should submit a test score now. Let me pause for a second I. Know I'm throwing a lot at you and you're probably wondering how do I determine percentile? There are some tools out there a college data You can go to college data, dot, com DOT ORG DOT COM to determine with those percentiles are, and then of course, inside of college. Admissions Academy. I licensed data. So students had that data to really drive decisions inside of our dashboard or college planning dashboard, and so they're able to see how they match how they rank and what are their chances of getting in to a particular school. So you've got options here. You know. So my college admissions. Students had those tools at their fingertips to make those kinds of decisions to help them build their college list. But again, you could go to college data and I'll have the link in the show notes Just simply walk through yourself and Take a look at you know what your student Shit score on the tests to be considered. So before closing I, just want to give my final recommendation. Take the test and choose to submit on a case by case basis. So it depends on the type of school. Maybe the type of of program, really how the school has got to this test optional practice. Did they always go test optional? So had they been doing tests optional at least for three years or more or is this new because of covid nineteen? So you WANNA look at all of that and take all of that inconsideration. But I'm telling students, I'm telling my students who are enrolled in. In College? Admissions. Academy and I'm telling you the listener, take the test. If your student is able to sit for the test, I want you to prep for it and you know get it on your calendar and take the test because taking the tests gives you the option not to submit for schools that are test optional. So it's better to take it take a look at your score. And decide at that point whether or not you want to submit it and how you want to move forward with your school list. So I know that was a lot, but I wanted to give just a brief overview of test optional admissions so that students can understand what that looks like especially since so many schools have gone test optional. So, again, thank you for joining me for another episode of the Scholarship Shark. podcast I'm Pam Andrews. Your host. This is where we help. You take the bite out of college debt.

"Good morning speak when we mullahs. And it's Friday. Morning may the eighth. It's beautiful and sunny. I'm dividing days of mostly in my head by the rainy day or the sunny day or the cold and Sunny Day The day of the week gets lost. Sometimes I just earlier this morning I love listening to the Chicago public radio station and Especially for their news coverage and they have a BBC news in the morning and today. I didn't realize I know yesterday was V. Sock Day the full Moon Day in June and the sixteenth. This one Blue Lotus. I said the fourteenth yesterday the sixteenth is when Blue Lotus ordinarily would have celebrated that at our temple this year SUPPO- Yesterday and it's still a full moon. Today I think so. Enjoy the full moon and have your own. Is We talked about yesterday? Do Your own internal celebration with your with the people. You're a home with and for yourself personally. We can celebrate it for ourselves. And we're celebrating the birth and the and the Enlightenment and the final enlightenment at his death so we can roll all of our big holidays pretty much into one But today is the seventy fifth anniversary for of the of E. Day after World War. Two the surrender of the Germans in a victory in Europe Day and the BBC had a beautiful short tribute to that and it was very moving and they read a letter of someone describing to her husband who was overseas what it was like an England and how people were Winston Churchill spoke and the king spoke and It was such a beautiful time and for years of course in Europe they were still rationing. They were rebuilding and England had been badly bombed and All the all the European countries had been affected and it it was the end of the war the official end of the war in Europe. The that took a little bit longer other places to reach that final end of the battling day as we know but I was I really immediately was thinking about think of how many years Europe was struggling and in a living through a war and such an such a terrible war just trying to entire populations of people being wiped out. And I thought about this co Quarantine that were under and how hard it is for people to to make it through six weeks of trying to maintain social distancing wearing masks and we know when we listen to the health authorities. We're going to have to be Moving into our new future slowly and gradually and so many things will be changing so I think it would be really inspiring to listen to that feeling from people who had been living with the threat of bombs every night in some areas all day long losing their loved ones every day hearing about losses Hearing hearing about the the atrocities of the war as they were uncovered over the years and economies being shattered and I think I think it's always good to put things in perspective is to look at history and see what we're capable of going through and coming out of it stronger and better and so let's let this be the seventy fifth anniversary for V day. Let it be let it be a reminder to us that we can. We can get through everything we can get through. This and this virus is not. It's it's this is not something to sneeze that. That's not the image to use. This virus that were experiencing is getting us into a lot of Economic Pain and people are having so much difficulty dealing with. I think I think it's time for us to have compassion for ourselves and for others and be more accepting of different people's ways of responding to the to the restrictions they feel in the fear they feel and for our own I read Michael Franz X. Beautiful facebook story about a group he was working with and Tree Lanka recently and The the beauty and the dignity he saw from people who've experienced a lot of poverty in isolation in Being a outcast of their own society in some ways so that would be good. If you can read that. It's a beautiful little piece. But he he makes a statement in that too about. We have to have compassion for ourselves when we judge other people and they will. Their response isn't the way we should be responding. So it's I know that's always something we can work with in our practice and we do it the same way that we send loving kindness to ourselves and radiated out we can send compassion to ourselves and understand that We are is not the way everybody else's and that we have our own fears about this. We have our own pain. We have our own issues we're dealing with and we can have compassion on ourselves and then we can send that out to others and work with our difficult people that way we. We need to all kind of step back and breathe. Which is what we're doing here every day and And see that our brothers and sisters that our planet all over this planet people are going through difficult times when we go through difficult times. We often become difficult. People challenging people It's hard for us to deal with things and to work through our pain. It's not their layers to it and I think we're beginning to see and look a look at and think about all the layers to this the rippling effects that are happening happening very quickly in our society and Family people with children of people living alone people people who are more hermit likened nature and people who are more people wanted in nature in their regular pre cova days. Were all reacting differently and we need to take that into account so be. Be careful about not beginning to judge people in the different ways. They're handling things but at the same time keep your own boundaries and do what you think is right for you and don't let your your fear of other people's decisions caused you to become fearful. We can take care of ourselves. Because we're we know what we need and we know we can find the right people to get our information from and to move forward so let's work with our own. Let's work with compassion towards our own fears and our own worries and our own anxieties. And then let's send out the same compassion for others. We have to keep doing that all the time and also find some things to be joyful about an laugh about an have humor about and find the beauty in every day and every minute and then were then. We'LL BE FINE. Move through this slowly and calmly and that's that will be we'll look back and think maybe we'll find all the proud moments of the way we handle things and decisions. That were made that. We think we know we`ll. It'll be a lot of history written about this period so Right now we're experiencing it so we need to live in the moment and be be able to live beautifully. Through this experience there will be grief and there will be pain. There will be suffering and we need to understand that this Changing world that's the nature of this world so enjoy V. E. Day today and listen to some really heart stirring Memories and speeches in the beautiful things from the ending of the war and I think that will inspire you. It's certainly I. It's certainly rang true for me and beautiful listening to some of the memories people have and how they were able to take that break and have have a period of joy and then they had to go into the whole recovery for all of Europe which was devastated in a way that we none of us living in America have in this country and how that they needed that break. They needed that inspiration to get on with the next stage and I'm sure I'm sure it was a life giving break for so many people. So let's sit for A. Let's have a short. Let's do a short sit. Today is Friday. I'll see you again on Sunday. But let's do a short sent so generally close is if you're looking out over scenery that is calming for you. You can let your gaze be out but let it be downward so you not get distracted with too much going on. Let's body had that beautiful straight posture. Whether you're on the floor her walking or sitting let your body feel aligned. If we haven't been getting the exercise we need will feel it because our back will feel a little resistant but it will feel wonderful. When we feel it being straight and upright and lined aligned breathe in and out through your nose just be aware of your breathing in the spot that you can feel it best either your belly rising and falling inhale and your belly expands and exhale. Feel it contract. Her be aware of the sensations. Just around your nostrils feel the air. The coup heiress. If it's cool like it is here. You can feel cool air as you breathe in in. Its immediately warmer when you exhale theory subtle sensations through your nostrils. Breathe him as you inhale that compassion for yourself in as you breathe out. Breathe out compassion for all other. Living beings all viewpoints. You hold. I know that's an impossible task at this moment. I'm sure that's one of the things the Buddha ask us to do. Let go a few points. Let go of clinging to things that we believe in letting go of clinging everything let everything go to things. If by our experience we see things that are true. We've helped those lightly. We are changing all the time right along with the world so we need to hold everything we know or lightly and as we develop the quality's like could will and loving kindness and compassion feeling joy for others and equanimity that balance that Middle Path at Middle Way. Those are the qualities all of us can develop now gradually open your eyes thinking of your loved ones and everyone else in this world may everything we do and think be done for the benefit not only for ourselves but for all living beings. Thank you very much for joining me and I hope you have a Wonderful v day and I hope you. I hope you find joy in the simplest things are in the big events that are in your own life. Thank you bye-bye today see Sunday.

Will you've been presented. By progressive insurance lou roaches will join the team. Keep drizzled over here key hole in the manual play for the rave no more than ten years ago. If you think the pages got a shot at winning the Winning winning the Afc going to the playoffs. You got some beach front property and iowa we got you donate to say arizona beachfront property. I never say. I know west coast. I know damn well. I weigh nowhere near the ocean. Arizona's a little closer. So you could at least say arizona if you want to say they all wanted to make it abundantly. I wanted to make it abundantly clear. Where i stay on all. I'm saying all i'm saying. Is i understand the frustration of the ravens in the pat years in history. They won the game. I don't give a damn. What the monsoon eight thousand up. I don't care if the lights went out again. I don't care if you can forgive jon. Gruden aca forget the patriots and jon gruden. We ain't never had no no beef like that where i can't get along with the man. I just know what he is he. I'm just pushing a false narrative man. Because i i've ran out of excuses you know and we're having this conversation. Obviously because zubin says that that the doing the patriots are done and cam. Newton is fool's gold right now. That's basically what he said and i said to him. I'm not counting the new england patriots out into the mathematically eliminated. I don't give a damn with nobody say because zero bella. Check his the head coach period alma. What might happen indeed. I've said this. Before and i think you're just backing it up if there's anybody that's in sports right now in the four major professional sports anywhere in college your local youth coach wherever. You're listening to us. If there's one person on planet earth that's involved in sports that deserves the benefit of the doubt. Obviously it's bill belichick with track record. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk. Wireless might've just you might have just heard at the top of the program greg. Mcelroy said he wanted to hear cam talk a little bit less smile a little more. He referencing the win on monday. Shaved the season and then upsetting baltimore ravens on sunday night. Bart's old team and they're right back in it. Even though the football power index right now has the pats with just four percent chance to win the division but me say them out. Who did they play before the ravens. The jets on monday night. Okay in struggled it looked ugly was it was playing down a competition and all of that right on the final play winless team. It was the worst thing that could ever happen in india. What did everybody say on tuesday. The way to the ravens get older. Do well god. They're going to do this. They're going to do in then key. They win the game king. They do what they're supposed to do to get the w. and we still have a problem with cam newton. Oh he's not throwing for there's no way so damn what they got the w key loquacious johnson wrong. That we don't is because that's loquacious calling somebody look way. Listen aller one. I learned one college where two week man that was. That was next. No we all understand. The game against the ravens was really. You know. we've all been in those games where the elements can kinda beat the equalizer a tremendous job understand. That collapse campbell was out and they ran the ball and they did what they had to do to win. They wanna convincing. Fashion and bill said they were bill beltway does he took advantage right here of situation football alps game. This is gamed up. Dissolved coached up. You know what i mean and and you tip your hat to them but we know if this was on a on a regular. I don't know. I don't know if all i know is what i saw you want. I don't know details. No i got you. But what i'm saying is like you know dallas to equalize the fact that the elements you know when when you when you know. There's certain things that you can't do with the element is to equalizer for team is so much better than so. Let me ask you this question. Though. 'cause you play defense income you know. Have the ravens ever been able to throw the football rain. Snow sleet sunshine anything. I think they can throw a better if they don't have the elements guys in the ball but listen. They'll those oh bad weather games. Those are equalized because mistakes happen to do. Is you supposed to put a game plan together. based on the week of the whether you look at the chart like we've always done. I one of the things that we do. We go and we'd look to see what the weather's like but the team but the team but the team as living in those elements have advantage because they know more about what the weather's going to be about us no difference between the weather in baltimore and the weather in new england. What is what do you see. How do we look at you. Like man was was so nice. Say damn thing. It ain't color california coming east from. I'll say a million times baltimore below the mason. Dixon as i was saying a million is for me okay. Dc baltimore new jersey new york boston anyway. Hail students go is ice up to defend. The thin meet rains in baltimore through football. Sue new way. I know your name is on the show zubin. Come on you gotta weigh in. It's a different is different weather in new england than it is an book. Zora zuma got to say go away in on. I'm not ams her nwa certified. So i can't really give you the answer for the book. But i gotta give you. I gotta give you one option to weigh in on. It's not that i want you guys to weigh in on something else. And that is essentially this morning's twitter question. The question essentially this morning simply put we talked about. The past are sitting there at four and five right now their ten th in the afc east if you look at it obviously seventeen are going to make it this year but they won two in a row. They got a little bit of momentum. Kim also said something that belichick told the team the other day is we are a little better than record indicates. Only we've can be true but lose it fell. The last two weeks does show us that. So that's really important. That ballot check mentioned that in can put that out. Let me tell you so man this guy. Sitting to my left. He played for the jets and he played for the eleven years. Yeah he does not like new england. So i can't listen to him when he talked about the patriots. I'm like pittsburgh's ryan card. Come on he's going to say certain things about teams that he played a kiss. Is this the reality of bill. Said this was the best that he had. He couldn't do it because of the salary. Cap is the best thing conflict floor. Say it's like come on man. Listen you what i think. This is more about and is less about the patriots. And it's more about the job that brian flores is doing and it's a job. That's that's what's been done in buffalo. I think that this isn't the year like you know when you go against a team. That's been great and you finally recognized that you can beat them. I think it's no more fair with. The dolphins is no more fear than the building when you look at the dolphins dolphins have the easiest remaining schedule. Let me say the dolphins compete. Who i think the dolphins potentially can win this division but they still got to see new england. I don't think that's going to be a problem. I think. I think we're i think we're how great how good that the dolphins have been playing on defense. I think they have no problem. Plan my Playing playing you know the patriots. So i think that they should be a legitimate threat to win the division because they got the easiest schedule in yes what makes their schedule the easiest to remaining in football the fact that they're paying pass that's four and five and they're playing a team that don't have the weapons they don't have the ammunition to get it done so they got a fool you with smoke and mirrors. The trick plays and things like that doesn't say that but listen. We saw last year when we all thought that the patriots were going to beat the tennessee. Titans when you go against somebody knows all your jedi. Mind tricks bill you know. I think that that's the equalizer you saw. Variable out belichick. Bill last year with jumping off sides pressure miami and beat him once. I got that but that was the first game of the season. This team is different football team. This team is believe in. And i think they're inspired and energized by a young quarterback in their plan tremendous on defense. I think brian flores has them believing and we've seen him do this in turn this team around in short order in two years. He's made this team from a pretender to a contender. Okay i'm i'm gonna listen to the raven in the jet against the patriots. Listen you don't think. I hate the dolphins to own all nano. The south beach is undefeated south southeast undefeated. You go down there as other things for you plan more than the dolphins when you go to south beach we gotta break. Go straight talk wireless. No contract no compromise a week one. It was the pats over the dolphins by ten points. By the way they'll meet again in week fifteen in a game. That could be huge down the stretch week. Seventeen miami at buffalo. Keep that in mind. That could be absolutely huge. A reminder. we're asking this morning. We tried to get to it. I tried my best. I'm going to get to it now. Keyshawn jay z releaser. Who in the afc east sixty five percent of you of said the bills again. The football power index has them at about seventy five percent to win it. Still to come cuyler murray. Mvp talk on the field tomorrow night. After the hail. Mary why he owes a debt of gratitude to the guy standing on the opposite. Sideline tomorrow night. That's next it's keyshawn. J. will zubin with bart scott in the house on. Espn radio is brought to you by red box. Red boxes new movies at the box streaming on demand from the producers of us. Don't miss antebellum starring janelle monae visit red box dot com for all the ways to watch big story in college basketball yesterday. Wichita state men's basketball coach gregg marshall resigning after an abuse investigation. That was put forth by an outside law. Firm of physical and verbal abuse against players at wichita and his previous stop winthrop. Espn college basketball analyst. Jay bilas who played in high school in the early nineteen eighty says in twenty twenty. This just can't be happening. This is not the way to coach acceptable. When i was coming out of high school is not acceptable anymore. In the truth is it wasn't acceptable. It is clearly not acceptable. Now if you're not paying attention to the way. Societal norms have changed. I don't care how much you win. Nobody deserves to be treated the way those players staff were treated if indeed. Those allegations are true. And i believe them to be true. Bart tell you what man you ever heard of market correction now. Somebody should correct the him a long time ago. The fact that he's gonna get seven point. Five million dollars is absurd. If i'm one of those kids that he allegedly assaulted. I wanna make sure. I'm gonna get some that seven point five in the form of lawsuit. It's ridiculous that he can do something. Conduct detrimental supposedly that you void your contract. Yeah understand. i hate to chime in on this when i get with. Jay bilas said there but back then now anyway periods never said it was never accepted will never be accepted. I wish a coach would ki ki coach. Ever approach me like this. You never heard me because the guy out there named michael vite tried that and then go away. He thought it was going to go indeed once again. Seven point seven five million dollars heater rolling seven year contracts every year. It would roll over to seven. He could have been twenty three million dollars but they settled at seven point. Seven five million dollars. He's in his fifties. He may coach again. Who knows people are always willing to take a risk on people. We've seen that in sports time and time again. Last thing mike tomlin and the steelers are getting ready for. What should be a simple game right against the jacksonville. Jaguars one of the worst teams in the nfl. Ask green bay about underestimating jacksonville. Played tight mike. Tomlin not falling for that into the trap game discussion. I understand it. S things that you guys like to talk about. But this is the nfl and more than anything to guys know my attitude regarding that. We're not a big ten team. Plan a mac opponent this week every time we step into a stadium plan professionals players and coaches and we got a ridiculous level respect to that and so you know. Write your story. Man follies storylines trap gains and things of that nature. We understand what we're going into in jacksonville. That's group is trying to kick our professional group capable group and we're preparing with that understand. I'm glad he didn't say the pac twelve. That's for damn sure Mitee knows that all coaches across the league knew that and they know that now in green bay new that green bay won the game every now and then teams that are superior than others. Play down to competition. It's just something that happens. You you kinda just nature you fall into the fog of the situation at times you you you know you like. It's not that you know prepare. It's just it doesn't feel good. They're not going full speed sloppy so things happen until you switch turns thinking about the dallas cowboys. They took them all the way to the end. In pittsburgh finally got turned around they won the game. It happens you get two three of those a year for sure z. No doubt about it and thanks to mike tomlin for the promotion. Three games action last night. A couple on espn citing gum. Just glad he just say pac twelve. That's all state offense. Looked amazing man. We'll have to break that down another time for four hours everything dollar but i'm not watching that i'm watching. Id network zone. I'm just i'm sorry. Yes indeed and on that note. Cuyler murray killed the buffalo bills on sunday man. We're still talking about the hail. Mary three full days after it happened. It's a short week because with just four days to get ready. The arizona cardinals are heading up to seattle to take on the gigantic game. Gigantic game in the nfc west with three teams arizona. Seattle and the rams sitting at six and three if arizona gets this game on the road. You paired with the win. They had over. Russell wilson and the seahawks on sunday night football in overtime and suddenly the arizona cardinals are gonna wake up on friday morning at seven and three and sole possession of first place in the nfc west and perhaps an mvp candidate at quarterback. This sean jay will zubin coming to you. Live from the seaport district. Appear seventeen brought to you by chase key. I can't help but notice. Yes kylo was the first overall pick in his draft. Yes but when russell. Wilson came out the other quarterback on the other side of the field. That was getting all the mvp chatter that keiler is now getting he was the seventy fifth overall. Pick even though he was a winner at every step of the way including a rose bowl at wisconsin but everybody said despite drew brees being in the league despite doug flutie having had a level of success everybody said well you know. We really couldn't have drafted him where we wanted to draft him because of his height so we drafted him seventy fifth overall in the third round. He flourished and i think it's been pretty fair to say since that happened. A lot of shorter quarterbacks including the one he's gonna face on thursday night oh him a debt of gratitude. It can work. Here's the blueprint. Don't be afraid to draft me. When i think when you you look at it. It works for certain teens. in certain situations. It was a blessing that drew brees was able to go with. Sean payton in shy pain didn't have a problem. Putting him at quarterback in the rest was history for the new orleans saints championships records potential hall of fame ballot guy. But there's a reason for as long as the. Nfl has been in existence. There hasn't been a large number of under six foot. Quarterbacks that have been successful in the national football league the nfl is a big man sport. It's a large person sport. I know there are the smaller skill position players that have had success. There's a ton of them from defensive backs wide receivers and now. We're looking at the quarterbacks two running backs but lot of the smaller body types have been stacked his former teammate. A guy like ray rice will stat. I mean he was built like a brick. So when you look at that and you look at slider guys russell. Wilson is a thick shorter guy. He's not as slight as pat white. Or even kyla murray kyla murray is really small. Man in this is why this is so intriguing in dominant and when you look at it. He's so it just is different because he if you saw z. Giving like he's skinny though he's not but he's not like he's going to grow and he's gonna he's gonna grow into a pretty probably will grow into it. I mean he probably will but when you look at it he's not small in he's small. He's not as thick as russell or drew brees. Drew brees is in little means not like little. He's not frail. Is so when you when you talk about quarterbacks. Most of the quarterbacks are six feet in above six one six two because they need to be able to see over the off offense line they need to be able to throw throw around guys not necessarily perimeter. Big receivers want to see the ball. Come out of the hands of quarterback. I played in a pro bowl with doug flutie and it was hard as hail. I'm coming from vinny testaverde prior to the pro bowl. So everything. I'm seeing is coming off a vinnie's rhys i could see it. Come out when. I breakdown boom ball out. I'm looking for doug running the cut. I'm trying to find all of a sudden ish shoots are like it's coming out of machine. That's hard coaches know that now. The tide has changed to a degree. Whether it's to whether it's russell and now cuyler baker mayfield when you start to look at these six foot type. In under quarterbacks they're having some success now is it changing will it change forever. No because there's going to always be room for the sub sub zero refrigerator quarterback of the big philip rivers time. But for me. I think every six foot quarterback olds russell. Wilson tremendous You know gratitude. Because he daybreak the mole because not only has. He opened the doors for the shorter quarterback. He opened the doors for the mobile quarterback because before the most dynamic player that this leak had ever saw before russell wilson came in was michael vick. But what was the nocco michael vick. He can win a lot of games for you but he can't win and beat you from the pocket. Russell has found the balance between doing both. He shows you. And i remember mike. Singletary told me longtime ago. Greatness comes in every shape and size and russell wilson was the first one approved can come from a shorter quarterback. They can beat you from the pocket. No win the run and you know we learned something about playing michael vick. I never lost a michael vick every my career but we understood something that the same windows that he used a throw through. Those are the same ones that he used to run through so like where they don't have. The sort of quarterback doesn't have the ability to throw over the top but a defense they found a way to be equally as to be equally as dominant by throwing through the same windows that they run through because at the end of the day most teams. You always going to have a lane. So i think that russell wilson is to is to translate. I think he is the mark but the guy that has made the transition that opened the door for baker mayfield. Open door for lamar. Jackson opened the door for a column. He's going to continue to open those doors because he is one of the most outstanding quarterbacks at this game has ever seen he's doing more with less since lease no boom left in any other quarterback in late. This is an opportunity for kyla. Murray to not necessarily surpass russell wilson if he wins this football game but kinda put yourself in a position where he's going to be talked about as an mvp type candidate in a serious one because this will mark the third time in three tries consecutive the arizona cardinals. Mary have bumped off to seattle seahawks. Stop right there. Think about that key used. Just say that like it's rolling off the tongue. Think about how many other teams in the nfl if the play the seahawks span of three games understanding that division foes. No the seattle seahawks better. Because you're playing. I'm twice a year. Think about how many other teams in the league. If you said you have to go beat seattle one to three times in a row the list of teams that can do that small. It's very small but it's gonna be a challenge going to seattle chance of rain. Sixty sixty percent towel. I'm sure it will increase as get closer to the game You know it's going to be twelve th man but the snow the rain and win all of that sort of facts. Oh so that factors. We're back to this. You didn't even keep you. Just be quiet manually. Let me finish when you take a dome team outside of the dome and put them in that type of environment. It's a little bit different for dome. Teams opposed to a team coming from baltimore where rains or snows code. Arizona size retractable you. Just move them up to up to ninety five a little bit and get them up into foxborough in their dome. Yes it it's retrial. Ever ever opened up there under seventy. Yeah under seventy degrees. Yeah i haven't seen them open it up in a while so anyway. It's a little bit different for them. Look i i think they can beat them. Are the jamaa the key to this football game. It's gonna be jamal adams. You don't necessarily have to spy. Russell wilson russell wilson. Kylo mary. but you've got to pay attention to it. You gotta get him on the ground. See i think he's got to be the edges. They gotta make sure that this kid throws the ball from inside the pocket half to throw over and all those big arm. I think they have to be disciplined on the outside. When you go against guys like michael vick we you say when you get the quarterback depth. You gotta get the quarterback. Deb gotta spend back. Because you don't really do not want to. You saw that last play. What did he do. He broke the integrity. Defense got outdid built off schedule. Plays allowed his receivers get themselves open and put personal defensive backs. I think there's going to be because you can't spy column murray because you only have one spy that he can go inside the his loss. And now you're taking somebody out of the pass coverage that you need to double. You need to double hopkins in christian. Kurt is not in the you know the to sneeze at as well so it's gonna be interesting game but if seattle's wanna win we know there's going to be a shootout. We know the amazon has the ability to win a low scoring game because they do have running game they do have a somewhat. Adequate defence is no defense seattle. And that's going to be a problem. That's going to be achilles heel. The entire year got break. Yes we do. Jamal adams hasn't played a ton this season. So that's something to keep in mind too with regards to just familiarity being out there. Just real quick. I wanted to mention for people that people don't know doug flutie enough. You may not know fluidly. Ten thirty flakes russell wilson. Five eleven drew brees leading the pack at six feet and kyle murray officially at five ten. Whether or not the weather will be an issue seemingly as an obsession for art on the way though obsession can they go. Unbeaten will ask steelers super bowl champion in one minute right after sportscenter. We're just hours away from the twenty twenty nba draft. It's on espn espn radio tonight. Coverage beginning at seven thirty eastern on television on the radio. J. will will be knee-deep in draft coverage he'll be broadcasts. He's still studying. He's going to join us intact coming up at eight. Am eastern talk about it. The wolves have the first pick the warriors with clay and staff back healthy. Have the second pick. That could be very enticing. We talked about the short quarterbacks the long and short of it with drew brees. He wants a second opinion on the rib injuries. He's got five cracked ribs which led to punctured lung. One zero kemin rolled by kentavious stream at one tier barred essentially say drew a little tougher. Nick foles if you've been with us. Throughout the course of the morning. He absolutely was demolished on that play. But he's looking for a second opinion cubs president of baseball operations theo epstein stepping down before his contract was up on the north side of chicago. General manager jd. Foyer will be promoted into his spot. Baseball insider buster only joined us this morning and essentially said. There's no way the end of the line for theo from boston to chicago to. He's only forty six and he says buster does the might be involved at the ownership level. The next go around to bump up sportscenter presented by progressive insurance drivers save with progressive. Save over seven hundred fifty dollars on average. That was a mic drop moment from big ben after their win in dallas which was a little closer than they would have liked ben essentially said. Hey it's america's team. But when. I see the towels and all around the world. The pittsburgh steelers are the global team benz. When a couple super bowls ryan clark has won a super bowl here renegade man and he joins us this morning on the shell. Pennzoil performance line. Good morning ryan. We were crunching the numbers. The music do this. Because that's what the defense of highlight take. And i'll i look at my quarterback. I'm saying coach. Look at this. Get the divas feel. Punt quarterback is under duress down. Now donna one thing ryan. I would say the steelers. The steelers aren't putting much this season at all and they are just scoring drive after dr after drive but the football power index number crunchers ryan. You want to super bowl. With this organization gives the steelers they six percent chance to win out and finish the season at sixteen and in the regular campaign. What do you think about that with picking up just a little bit more. Steam week after week with mercury morris sweating somewhere in south florida. Listen mercury moore's right now is ready for his free style because you don't expect teams to go sixteen and keys played. Sports play both been on extremely good football team. Just hard to show up every week and win. It's the nfl. S kind of what. Mike tomlin was saying like. It's not college. You don't get to be ohio state and be the dominant team in baby out recruit all the people you play and so you know they still have the bills. They still have the ravens. They still have the coats and is it a possibility. Yes but it's also a possibility or was a possibility and probability at times through the first nine games that they would have lost. I don't expect them to go undefeated. But i do expect it to be between them and kansas city chiefs for the number one overall seed in. Afc woody's teams in the nfc. We certainly know ryan will not be undefeated. Who is here right. Who wins. The nfc eastwood the giants. I guess coming back to pack the cowboys. Getting andy dong back in the philadelphia eagles just being the philadelphia eagles. You know what. I look at the new york giants and it's the team had the most confidence in like. I remember when all of this started and we realized how terrible nfc east was. Many people picked the philadelphia eagles because of their coach and because of their quarterback. And we're starting to watch that. Those two people art functioning to their highest level. So when you look at gioja when you look at daniel. Joe was having a couple of weeks without turning the ball over drastically. It looks like this team is playing the best football right now. It looks like that fits please the most intense to most aggressive defense in the nfc. So if i had to pick a team. Today i would pick the new york giant and when i look at this team as well i see a team that has bought into their coach. You know i know joe. Judge was getting a lot of early on about you. Know not named the quarterback not saying if saquon barkley going to be a starter but. I think that we're starting to see some things that he's trying to teach him. He always talked about toughness in. Now you're starting to see their team. Reflect in also whenever you bench top ten pick. It tells your team that everybody is if you can play. You're going to win. And that sends a message throughout the entire teen to. Hey the best players are going to play in. Everybody has equal opportunity. keyshawn johnson. That's important bart j will ensue. Progressive insurance august joins us on shell pennzoil performance line. You have that little bit of a delay there. So sorry about that ryan. Go right ahead. you got him. I was just saying though. Like i remember being on teams where you felt like the best player would play. I remember being in pittsburgh knowing that if a fifth round draft pick undrafted free agent could help us that that guy was going to play and so you practice that way. You work that way and you start to see those things on the field in new york. Giants absolutely reflect who. Joe judge's and right now he's showing that leadership being able to delegate being able to reach people as much more important than the x.'s. And o.'s when you're picking hey coaches ryan when you look at the afc east to new england. Patriots are playing a little better here in the last couple of weeks. They beat up on the they squeak one out against the new york jets and they beat up on the baltimore ravens and got out of there. With w buffalo loses a heartbreaker to arizona in miami is rolling along with to who wins the afc. Now i think it's the buffalo bills but i think they have to win in week seventeen. I think he's gonna come down to that week. I think the miami dolphins have a little bit harder of a schedule going here down the stretch and you know they'll lose some games like the buffalo bills lose one or two win. That game is going to decide when you look at brian floor and with the miami dolphins or doing that team is the sending but you gotta realize the buffalo bills also put themselves in a position where they still have half game lead so going down the stretch with his defense playing a little bit better with josh allen. Kind of being up and down. But we've seen him play. Will the last two weeks other than some erin throws against the arizona cardinals. I think this is going to be a race to the finish that the buffalo bills just edged out the miami dolphins. Let me get this right. Keyshawn j. zubin is presented by progressive. Insurance all join us on the show. Pennzoil performance line ryan when you look at the chicago bears and matt nagy. What happens moving forward with nick. Foles i guess he's on his show. And then mitch trubisky trying to get healthy. What happens after by. I mean in the position for me. I think men aggie has to admit it right matt. Nagy has to come to his team during the bye week and say you know what guys i miss this one up. I was so i was so ready to get get by mitchell trubisky. I was so ready to get over with him to get past and get to. Nick foles that i didn't really see what he could do for our team. I didn't really see that. If i just who i was as a coach it will work. I had not had to take his ego out of it. Go back to mitchell trubisky. Because you've got a defense. Playing chapman is championship caliber. Football and your office is terrible. Offense is horrible. Like i don't know if there's an office in the league that i would pick the chicago bears in front of and so when you have this opportunity with an ageing defense. You don't have a lot of picks. You have to capitalize when you can. And i believe if matt nagy doesn't get this fix that the chicago bears may be looking for a new. Hey coach heading into next year. You know ryan you've been seeing in college merged praises and deservedly sold. The guy's came in and kinda picked off where he left off in college. I think the fact that he's able to be comfortable in the same office of system. And then you look at russell wilson. We've been talking about. How great he was playing. But he's kinda come back to earth you talk about the turnover seven and the turnover these over the previous weeks here but are we overlooking the los angeles rams and the fact that i believe that they're the most complete team within individual eventually offensively when it's all said and done which one of those teams you can win that division. You're absolutely right. I think we overlooked the rams. Because the quarterbacks those other two teams are so exciting and we like we enjoy watching them play. But you look at the rams defensively. They probably have to the best position players in the nfl. And aaron download and jalen ramsey darius williams balling on the other side in the package. Leonard floyd of rushing the quarterback and then offensively when they run the ball. I established the line of scrimmage jared. Goff those weapons play extremely well. I think it's the best team and the most complete team in the nfc west to board. I think that that's the team ends up winning it. Even if it's not the team that we want to watch the most interesting we'll have to keep our eyes on that it's a huge game tomorrow night and it could be a huge game in determining the winner of the nfc west. We'll see ryan this morning on. Get up with greeny and company at eight pm eastern and then would stephen a molly at ten. Am ryan thank you so much a run a single handedly bring him back. The a single handling bringing a narrow collar back. I've tried to address for success. And the super bowl champion right. Thanks very much all right on the way. We haven't really touched on this this morning. This is normally a big deal. Tonight's the nba draft will fill in the blank. Fill in the blank. Who will be tonight's number. One overall pick self explanatory fellas. I'll give you a couple of categories will fill in the blank. We'll start with the nba draft tonight. Espn eight eastern. Jay wills gonna join us here coming up at eight. am eastern. He'll be ready for the draft at eight pm eastern hills to be there to break it down mike. Schmidts draft analyst will join us at eight ten eastern and cash stanley from duke coping. Here's name call tonight will join us at eight. Thirty am eastern. That's your rundown fellas. Here we go fill in the blank key. Fill in the blank will be the number one pick in tonight's nba draft lamelo ball lamelo ball number one pick in the nba draft. They like his length. They like his size like his about five years ago. Many might have been five eleven all of a sudden they do six seven six eight. I mean he you know he's got some pedigree. I could see him in in the morning overall for me. I think i'm going to go with Anthony edwards. I think if minnesota's capes the number one overall pick you got the ngelo russell there you've got karl anthony towns. You know you wanna you want somebody that can be a shooting guard. That can fill up the box score. I think that's the perfect complement. But i don't know i expect more trades in this draft in any other drive before in the nba. You know they like they like potential in youth if a guy is twenty one versus a guy that's eighteen they'll go. I like the guy that's eighteen. This old man's drive to four year type guy draft indeed. I'm sure many of you have heard of lamelo ball. Anthony edwards played collegiately one season at georgia. The warriors got the number two pick that is spicy. They screw it up. They trying to move that one. Screw it up their injuries. How about this quick note on clay clay's not playing a single game in the nba. Since game six of the twenty nine thousand nine hundred finals the game he got hurt. He has not played since. June of twenty nine hundred took the ghost. Words lakers air by climate. We off season. Here we go. This is the big one. James harden will play for fill in the blank this coming season. it's a referendum. Yeah they the deal. Probably want him getting done at some point. That's where he wants to be. That's the way wants to go. He doesn't want to be in. Houston i know. A lot of people are talking about one hundred and three million dollars that he turned down with the extension. But you gotta remember if he comes in new york and he goes a brooklyn he wins. There's more shoe money on the table for him. Not that he needs anymore but also they're gonna give him an extension in may not be a hundred and three million. What's the difference between eighty and one hundred and three much. You already got made bank about five hundred million. i mean. i think it's ran. Its course right in houston. He understands that he can't win. They're the project no small ball ball. Big man it was crazy that he's coming here he's gonna play for d'antoni again and play that same style ball. I know nashes the coach. But i think he definitely plays for the nets because when you look at how the golden state warriors playing. I think this offense were more favored to go to say worst offense. The ball moves can be beautiful basketball. And i think everybody you know will kind of take less to be to achieve more indeed. Mike d'antoni if you missed that story is now back. He's an assistant with the brooklyn nets. Of course he coach. Steve nash obviously hardens great. Play his best play of his career. Came under dantonio fills. Let's combo this one because we want to just kind of run through it. The steelers i lost this season will come against. I'm just gonna run off the schedule. And then you just chime in bony have to add jaguars not a chance raven. Homebrew the ravens thanksgiving thanksgiving. Ravens it comes against raven so that's bartender thanksgiving night. The third of three games on thanksgiving night. He love ravens. The ravens beat the hell out of the steelers. They just had the turnovers. They been checking quick versus the washington football team. You still have to find their first loss if there is one no i think. They think that they have a chance to go. Undefeated run at buffalo. I think they win at bengals win home versus the colts win. At cleveland win. So that's it. Those other teams are going to be desperate. Those who be decimals other teams toward the end of the season. Ain't got nothing right. You taking called the cold. The cold take indiana dome and you putting them in and with this is different india. They got the number one defense in the league and they got a ground and pound type of offense. I believe you know the thing is been what about his health going to get those tough defense. He go against the ravens. You go against buffalo. He against a coastal. There's some of the top defenses in the game. Big bands already. Been you know hamper. If you get to the end of the season would you consider resting. Been knowing that you've got number one overall you know slot locked up. So that's why. I think i think if into all that. Then that's something different. But if he's zuma said quick. So i think that if you get into what you're getting into what he's saying that's different than what i'm saying. What i'm saying is if they decide to play them the entire way. They're gonna go undefeated. I'm in an inappropriate cousin. Comes over to talk too much. Say do your job. The parental lines depres. He likes to call himself all right. So pittsburgh is that mentionable end the season at cleveland. Maybe key says sixteen to no on the line that sunday this year for the browns has been fill in the blank. It's been fine fine fine nothing. I mean the browse man they they. They got a chance to win the wild card. Get a wildcard spot and get bounced in the playoff. But if they get into wildcard. They're the one team that can upset a favorite because they have something they got a decent defense but they have a run game. That is ridiculous you talked about last week. Job coming back over. One hundred yards rushing. You talk about kareem hunt hundred yards rushing. That's the type arrested people success in the postseason. When you know is going to be bad inclement weather if you have a running game you have opportunity to win in this league and polcies. What happened in denver. Ma oh no. We bought allston. Cleveland does have the. Nfl's long ran away. Remember you call it a key no talking about last week but go here. Maybe that extra spot will finally end that turkey. The fill in the blank is the best division in the nfl. Right now. Destination and football. That's tough nfc. West got three teams at six and three niners have four wins west. I've se- seems right. Yes seems really six. And three teams yeah. Nfc west but you could also argue which is crazy. You could look at the south end. Nfc even know the records a weird atlanta in a record we're with the carolina panthers it just they play teams tough. And you know you could also look at. You also can look Afc east side of the jets right. I'm gonna ask c. north. I mean because you just talk about pittsburgh you talk about the ravens you talk about cleveland. All three of those teams can be in the playoffs. Yeah you could do. Afc north cincinnati takes you all the way down to the wire every week. Right to bars. Point and undefeated team leagues only undefeated team a pair of six and three teams and a really scrappy team at the bottom of the division. So that might be the answer. Now that i kinda always good thing. Gold bars it's got. It feels like the right answer. That's for sure. On the way the cowboys need more wins. They might not get him but they might be getting more fans. That's thanks for listening. To keyshawn. Jay williams zubin make sure to subscribe rate in review.

as you know the doctor would let us let us know it was one of those things that you know I always wanted a girl but for some reason it was like the curse of the Rangers uh I'll give it one more year to make my final decision right now I'm going to say I'm going to hold off a little bit it's just it's an experience you know it's an experience something like that where all the guys were you know having daughters and stuff like that so I have a mindset on the name of a girl and how it was going to raise her and you know keeper's single until she's at least fifty and all that but went to the doctor's office and we found out we were having a boy yeah it's Kinda funny too because I have a lot of navy any is a three are turning three this November wow okay also did you guys find out what what happened with them or do you wait till the end oh I wanted to find out Iraq and Afghanistan did some private military contracting after I got out then years after that I became a New York Times bestselling author deals on the show and then so many of them have they call it the frogman curse there they have like some of them have three four daughters yeah oh yeah I have no idea why that is maybe my autobiography titled The Reaper Ri- Set a record for the most kills in combat during a single deployment in Afghanistan from unit. Yeah that's I'm too I never really had a I don't think we you know any of us have a complete understanding of time but I think you know having a child definitely definitely puts that that time perspective into much testosterone I have no idea but it's the same with our with our our unit to you guys go for anymore you wanting done oh man credible nick and you've had so many awesome experiences and wild experiences how did the experience of becoming a father kind of change your perspective on Life Oh the perspective that's what I'm all about and this going through these pictures and you know I don't remember the time of the almost three years now how fast it went by and it feels like I don't know maybe I haven't mark the time I have four children myself and my oldest is thirteen and it's one of those things where you can't help but notice how much time has passed when you're looking at your kids Oh yeah it's unreal what happened is it's all right yeah nick if you could take a minute here to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background do yeah I'm a former special operations sniper six deployments three life lessons that I've learned and vote 'em into something that I am not couldn't be are are yet to discover yeah yeah right on there and you're I think that that changed my perspective on you know the entire outlook on life you know how perceive life and what life is all about the future and Tom the way that you can kind of look at things different and and notice how how irrelevant time is and how precious it is and how fast it can go by well so yeah definitely little theories that I called them theories and stuff like that so writing has always been you know one of my I guess you know hobbies exploring the the mind I'm never you know news Polar Express you know what does that other book that he loves he loves the this book with these little cat boy and this Algal or something PJ MASKS YEAH PJ masks that's my thing yeah yeah is that something would you ever consider coming out with a the time right now it's pretty much a bunch of high fives and hugs and kisses during the daytime we do a lot of reading and stuff like that I keep them away from you know of course the military stuff I don't know if it's always gonNA feel like I haven't done enough others weigh much you know way more than I wanNA teach him and explore with them and and it was pretty much a share kept journals throughout the military and those journals kind of transitioned over to the whole book road but I think the imagination I've always my dad raised me to be that way you know in my opinion I think I should have died in Afghanistan there was a time when I came close to it and I accepted it guys did die and I you know kind of The reaper obviously you said very successful New York Times bestseller and then you transitioned into writing some fiction what was that like for you to transition from writing the autobiography and then writing fiction is that did you've always wanted to do it's always you know been I guess a thing of mine since the seventh grade wrote my first little book collage Pitcher of a from one to twelve twelve months he was born on my birthday and it's always a a weird thing I don't celebrate my birthday anymore it's all about him Jones book or something like that that's a part of my I guess creativity I haven't really explored or anything I've heard a lot and stuff like that I used to be an astronaut but I guess the way my my grades were set up in school it wasn't you know set out to be that way but where I'm at in life right now but it's just Dr Seuss the Bernstein bears stuff that I used to read growing up and we have a little Teddy Ruskin it reads to them and stuff like that eight four them I'm grateful that I'm in this position that I'm in but you know it's something that if you would've told me twenty years ago I would you know not believe it at all so I think that just to keep the go to that to that extent I don't know it would be maybe some years down the line how would maybe translate I think valuable life lessons that you know that I've learned in things that you know I wish I could go back to my old self and tell them you know you know keep dreaming dream bigger are anything's possible and we hear that a lot growing up and as you know huge imagination I remember making a a time of seaney brought home some plywood and stuff like that and in the backyard making time machines and write down all these and and you know we're supposed to be scary novel but it turned out being just a little hobby how it originally started and gotten out of that stage of wanting to explore more and create yeah that's so cool because it seems like imagination is so underrated today with all the technology we have it kind of takes away your open mind and keep exploring and and you know just keeping you I think that's one of the important lessons I think I you know I want to go back and tell kids are till my youngest only stressful more stress than I've ever felt any deployment and he'd gunfights and the waking up every two hours really you know put me in for shock I was not prepared for that had that as a kid one of the original ones and that's so cool there Oh yeah oh yeah not too many kids know about that but it's you know Bernstein Bears Dr seuss shock I didn't know what to expect I mean I almost wanted them to give me like a pamphlet or book or something like that it was you know here's your child and we had the cars he couldn't talk back it was just figuring things out as you went along so that was that was the scariest time of my life and I think the most stressful but a good stress he got in the car and we drove home and it was just it didn't feel it didn't feel real having another human being in the house and you know not knowing how to talk to them and chance to imagine oh yeah and how about as far as I like to read books to your son what is your bedtime routine look like that survival survivor's guilt I guess you WanNa call it but the things that that you know the dos lined up in my life I don't think that you know I'm I'm
