Amazon Alexa Gets New Voices, Including Actors Melissa McCarthy and Samuel L. Jackson
"This month. Alexa is going to sound a little bit. Different on july fifteenth the tech giant rolled out an update to its digital voice assistant to include a second voice option. As you know amazon's assistant typically has like a feminine sounding voice with this update. You can change that to a more masculine voice setting this all up his quite simple. You just say the assistant's name followed by quote. Change your voice and quote but that's not all there's an additional wake word you can use in place of alexa. That new word is ziggy Basically it works the same way instead of saying the primary name of amazon's digital assistant You can say ziggy instead. If you're a fan of gigi and you've never tried to swap out the wake word and you kind of want to try it out. Anyway you have some other choices to You can use amazon. You can use echo or you can use computer And the way to do this is really simple. Just like with the change. Your voice option. You can make a query to the assistant and say change the wake word to whatever you want Another way to do this too is open up the app for the voice assistant go to the menu. Select your settings than device settings. Then you go to the device that you want to update with this new wake word and then you choose the when you want and that's it now if you don't want either of these options for voices you can actually add a little bit of celebrity flare After introducing an option awhile. Back to add actor. Samuel jackson's voice to queries amazon is much similar offerings featuring actress melissa mccarthy an nba legend shaquille. O'neal so the way it works is you kind of ask them directly as you would amazon's digital assistance. You might say hey shack. Tell me about the weather. Hey samuel Tell me about the news today. And it works exactly the same way and they will read everything in
I've Hired Several Coaches, but No Improvements. What's Wrong With Me?
"Hey i've hired three business coaches. They've all felt like a waste of time and money. And i haven't seen any improvements what's going on. There's something wrong with me. My doing this wrong. what's happening. Well i want to answer this question to make sure i also address. Everybody was listening. That my have a similar question thinking about hiring a coach or have higher coach. Maybe didn't see the results are looking for on a star by saying i have gone through this several times. I've hired coaches have a lot of experience. And not all. My experiences with coaches have been the same. I i have to say a quick If you have a coach if you hire a coach and they give you instructions if they give you a action items to do a plan and you don't implement you actually do the work it doesn't matter. What kind of coach you have. You have to actually follow through. So i know this kind of obvious but a lot of people i've met along the way have hired coaches and ask them. How's it working out like not so great as it will. What does the coach advising you to do. All of they're telling me to do xyz. We'll have you done xyz and they're like a not really not sure. If i should and that really is the biggest red flag for me when it comes to hiring a coach. Don't go down the road of hiring a coach if you're don't a hundred percent trust this coach and believe what they say you should do is worth doing because the whole point of hiring coaches saying. Hey i'm allowing somebody else to advise me on how to move forward. And i'm willing to do what i need to do to make. It happen very similar in sports. You know one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time is phil jackson. He coached michael. Jordan scottie pippen but he also coached the lay kobe bryant shaquille o'neal a lotta great players but these players would not be great would not achieve their level of excellence if they didn't allow themselves to be coached if they allow themselves to follow through. And do what the coaches asking them to do.
Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?
"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.
SPACs: The Backwards IPO That's Taking Over Wall Street
"The hottest trend on wall street. This year is a spec. That's spelled s. p. a. c. constantly house backs backs best back frenzies. Back actions back is the new black former house speaker. Paul ryan's got us back. Shaquille o'neal's got us back and the youngest self made billionaire ever just brought in all that cash through a spec. What the heck is a spec will let. Npr's camilla Explained in an ipo or initial public offering. You start with a company that wants to go public and then investors toss a bunch of money at it. A spat or special purpose acquisition company kind of flips that around investors pool. Their money together. I with no idea what company they're investing in then. That pile of money goes out and looks for a company to merge with the company gets the money and the stock ticker with a lot less paperwork until recently this was not a well regarded way to go public. They have this sort of shady origin. Story right rodriguez is a professor at the university of georgia school of law. There are these blank check. Companies really had a bad reputation a lot of blank check. Companies were outright frauds. So the federal government. Crackdown suspects added more safeguards to the blank check model like investors can get their money back if they don't approve of the company that gets picked but they were still on the fringes of the financial world until now and probably done one or two huge back combinations a year for the last five years until this year and then i would say the of the market just exploded. Sarah morgan is a lawyer. With the firm. Vincent in elkins specs today over fifty percent of my practice this year. Why now well if you look past the bad reputation specs have some real advantages there. Faster than ipo's and have less uncertainty for founders. Both attractive during this really uncertain year. Austin russell is the ceo of luminary a company. That makes lighter. That's like radar but with lasers it's used in self driving vehicles. He founded the company as a teenager. Now he's got contracts with companies like volvo. It was time to go public and he saw the appeal of a spec. You've got the process end to end and in a like four months as opposed to having to spend huge time distraction for the better part of a year or two and he'd seen several well respected companies. Do it i. it's pretty cool. His spac merger earlier this month made him at twenty five forbes's youngest self made bilionaire. Today's specs have clear benefits for founders. Like russell who can go public with less paperwork they can also mean big bucks for the sponsors who organize them in fact sponsors make so much money if they close a deal that some critics worry. There's an incentive to merge with a mediocre company just to get that payday and that raises a big question whether this spac craze will be good for investors shiver drita says the risks are real because the flip side of making things easier for companies is inevitably that the risk of fraud to investors goes up. I don't know anyway to square that circle some of the sears specs have performed badly on the stock market and others have raised bigger concerns after zero emission truckmaker. Nikola went public through respect. It was accused of fraud which the company denies despite the skeptics the spectacular rise in specs shows no sign of fading away camilo domino npr news.
New Adam Sandler Halloween Movie on Netflix
"I, guess sort of mixed reactions in mixed recommendations from me but Brad let's move to you. What have you been watching? I watched another hitchcock remake Huby. Halloween. How many I saw the original but this one is a steep departure. From that. No. This is the new Adam Sandler movie that's on Netflix's Halloween themed obviously, and I went out of my way to watch it because some people including an article that we published on slash home dot com. I don't remember who who wrote it and forcing them. Sir Jacob can tell me here in a second, but they actually said that this movie was funny. And I just WANNA say? No, it's not. I I will say I did laugh a few times during this movie. There are some some funny recurring bits and just a few things that I was surprised just funny jokes that suddenly caught me off guard. But this is just another weird movie were Adam. Sandler puts on a goofy voice and this is one of the voices where you can barely understand what he's saying to because he's mumbling all the time. And it's just has such a weird story and it has these tangents that don't ask anything that don't make any sense like. Shaquille O'Neal's part in particular. Felt like it was super shoehorned. into the proceedings and then. You know you have Julie Garner's character who is yet another woman who is inexplicably infatuated with one sandler's dimwitted goofball characters and I just I don't know how or like. Adam. Sandler his point and like why he's been stuck here for so long 'cause I had also recently rewatch the wedding singer went to talked about in the quarantine stream and recently big daddy because I found out that my parents had never seen and I love both of those movies and they are genuinely hilarious not even just funny by. Adam Sandler movie standards. They're very good comedies and just movies like Cuba Halloween in Sandy Wexler which Steven Brill also directed there. So far, and away you know the kind of comedy that Adam Sandler used to be able to make used to have like characters that were fleshed out and felt real while also being funny and like not just these goofy characters and that's not to say that you can't have comedies that have outlandish characters in them. But whatever Adam Sandler is doing with these kinds

Does Influencer Marketing Work
"Does having your business or brand promoted by a celebrity by influencer by tastes meagre in your market really work does it do more than just awareness as actually convert into actual sales? That's what we get into in today's episode. The first thing on a mention is that influence their marketing has levels. Okay. Now, everybody is going to be able to afford to use Shaquille O'Neal's influencers or Kardashian or the rock for that matter. Okay. But for most businesses, you don't need these big celebrities. You don't need these big names will you actually need is somebody who has a following? The has an audience that would be perfect for your products and services somebody who's really need. But has raving fans, I'll give you some examples. Pat Flynn is considered a influencer in the blogging community, the online business community. The content marketing community converted is a email marketing service for creators for bloggers. So pat is a big deal in that space. So when PAT promotes converted, it's going to move a lot of business because. I actually love what he says love what he does and they'll do a he recommends. So if he promotes convert it to his email emails on instagram on a social profiles does a Webinar that's a perfect match for converted. They're actually GONNA make more sales from Pat Flynn whose only known in that community. Then let's say a B. Actor who's well known but maybe doesn't have the following in that space. There's a cycled CAMEO DOT COM. The has celebrities that are well known household names that are willing to give shout outs and some people even endorsed businesses. Now, this might look. Cool and seem nice and maybe ego boost for your business. But it's probably not gonNA move a lot of sales because Kevin from the office is really not the authority in your niche market is not somebody people really trust in terms of a recommendation it's kind of cool thing to have, but it's not really gonNA move sales. So I really want to impress upon you today is you wanna find celebrities in your niche in your market who are the people that have the biggest following who is the biggest name in your niche if you're in the swimming niche WHO's the biggest? Swimming coach that everybody knows about in your country if you're into snowboarding who is a big snowboarder that is on youtube though has a following that people watch. You don't have to go with the household names, but the names that are known in your niche are really powerful because they can really really influence their audience to buy your product. So how does this all work? Well, I recommend when it comes to an agreement with an influencer is do a combination of a guarantee minimum plus commission. This allows them to have some skin in the game and want to push your product and. Promote it and recommend it and use it and give a testimony. So something like this would be like You know you're gonNA share this on your email list you're going to do a Webinar with me and you're GonNa you know post this on your social profiles, three times in one week and We're GONNA pay you. Let's say ten thousand dollars. Now this is just a figure I just pull out of my head. This is something that you can negotiate. It also depends on the following but in addition to the ten thousand dollars you WanNa say, Hey, use an affiliate link. Here's the link and you're going to get twenty percents on all sales. Again the percentage pulled out of my head. You can come up with the number of that's right for your business. But the point here is that they get a combination of cash upfront for doing what they do or even still fifty, fifty, five, grand five grand. In this example, you know five star five after the WHO fills obligations, and then they get the ongoing commission for any sales they get. So they can continue to promote you beyond the minimum commitment and they become sort of a partner with you.
NBA teams kneel during national anthem as season restarts
"Night, the embassy isn't got underway. And of course, there was a lot of attention being brought to what would happen during the national anthem. There were two games last night, and everybody kneels every single player, every single coach, even the officials. They all take a knee for solidarity with the national anthem. So I was curious as to what the broadcasters of the game on TNT, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley had to say, kind of surprising, actually, listen to Charles Barkley's response here. You're going to hear from shack first and then Charles Barkley type of God. They say you should do is you should do that. Everyone has their own platform. You know they're on their own brand. I'm proud of every one. And my thing is Listen. That's not the mean different things to different people. I'm glad these guys all unified where the people people don't kneel. You're not a bad person. I want to make that perfectly clear. I'm glad they had unity. But if we have a guy who doesn't want to kneel called the After me some to him, he should not be vilified. Listen

Probably GonNa Start with a ninety eight Eastern Conference Finals Course Bowls Pacers Jalen. You're there how do you remember feeling about your team's chances headed into that series against Chicago? So the unique thing about an athlete is that you have to have something that I call a rational confidence. I've sat in the locker room multiple days of my life and said that I was better than Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant Shaquille O'Neal. Tim Duncan none of them could guard me. None of them had a chance. That's what you have to tell yourself or you might as well not put on shorts and the shoes and you know that you're the underdog and you're going against all time greatness so for us. We wanted to end the height. We wanted to shut up. All of the Jordan stands so on the floor. It was like we about the eliminate Mike in not have him. You know have two three peats but not on watching the doubt. I'm like how we let this do laying on the couch with potbelly drinking every night. Smoke CIGARS BEAT US. That's what I'm thinking. We should have beaten down more. May Be more bad news team like you're seeing that year. Your coach by Larry Bird who obviously knew Jordan very well from his playing days. What did he tell you guys about how to defend on him? Both you know one on one and as a team. What would he told me? Because I was coming off the bench I was a young pup. I had the plate. Percentages is that I'm GonNa put you on twenty three scorn you twice. I'm taking you out. That was instruction. And so I'm like all right cool I'm GonNa just follow him.

"Michael Jackson Jackson Michael Jordan excuse me once had a chance to make one hundred million dollars for not much more than two hours of work and he turned it down for sure you think that's a true story yeah one hundred million who okay well tell me okay so his agent said they're not being very specific but he said this is according to his agent and it's a quote all he had to do was other than giving his name and likeness make one two hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down god bless him he's been so successful it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not do things he doesn't want he's very very selective in the things he wants to be involved in yeah I mean unless it was some like tawdry it get them more role deal for a hundred million dollars even if you didn't keep that money you could have changed other people's lives yeah but then you could you could argue that a whole bunch of wishes worth two point one billion dollars I credit him okay we're not taking it okay so he doesn't need it oh goodness no he is he has his own brand I mean the deal that he has the jump man logo with Nike he owns the what was the NBA team the Charlotte bobcats were real I mean this dude is he is doing fine I I think that's awesome that he would just I also want to find out the percentage under million to two billion are you gonna get some rice throwing out your rice I was but you know he's so protective the reason he is so loaded one of the main reasons is because of how protective he is band of Michael Jordan the brand is still like this ESPN documentary that's on right now is the most that we have heard from Michael Jordan ever ever ever yes he you never did you interview so you never see more like him more Fallon or anything like that he just lays so low he didn't get into the commentating business like Barkley did in like Shaquille o'neal did he is always just taken this this different route and there's been this this sort of like smokescreen around him which makes the entry so much more I mean he's been out of the league for twenty years and his shoes are still the hot issues that sell each and every year everybody wants a new pair of Jordan so if that hundred million if he felt it went against the brand that he had carefully curated for all these years hi Tony has nice enough money where he could be like now pass and don't forget is Hanes commercials yeah is he in the commercial I haven't seen one recently but I always remember he wasn't you know not too long ago yeah he was on a plane we have the Charlie Chaplin mustache and he was telling people about his aching neck member who suck but yeah yeah T. shirts in his underwear talk about underpaying planes yeah generally frowned upon death have not seen that one

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner secretly competes in rodeo events
"Arizona Diamondbacks left hander Madison Bumgarner has been competing in rodeo events under the alias Mason's Saunders and even one of twenty six thousand five hundred sixty dollars and a team roping competition in December according to a story published Sunday by the athletic Bumgardner was told I told the website that he has discreetly competed in rodeos for awhile including in March of last year two days before pitching for the San Francisco Giants in a cactus league spring training game he's been roping since he was fifteen or sixteen and said he's been added so long that quote it's just part of who you are he's the twenty fourteen World Series MVP if he agreed to an eighty five million dollar five year contract with the Diamondbacks this past December and I'm sorry Courtney if I was the diamond backs I wouldn't be thrilled to find out that my ace left hander yes competing in rodeos in the offseason this is the same guy who got injured on a dirt bike do not remember that when he was with the giants and that was a serious injury that put him out for a very long time no wonder he was performing I guess you want to call that under a pseudonym or a fake name because had you found out about this the Diamondbacks might not have spent eighty eighty five million dollar a gigantic sum over a five year contract on this guy I mean it doesn't make any sense like I understand the thrill of competition and this is who we is but these risky things every sport has stuff like this written into players contracts that you cannot do I mean I always go back to when it when he got hurt in San Francisco a few years ago do you remember the month Taylor's thing when he was with the warriors he fell off the scooter when he went back to Mississippi for the offseason S. lied about it yeah that was a story that came to mind and I feel like any time something like this it comes to the light I'm not one of these people is like all the cool funny look how cute of the story is I'm like what is he thinking like you get injured and made these you know these are animals eat these things have a mind of their own they're powerful they're strong and certainly he's you know well conditioned and knows how to be around horses but you know that to me is way too big of a risk if I'm a professional athlete you know the prime of my career to take but you know he's done it before and that he is you know we don't really get that much of outside having serious injuries at receiver big penalty from the team for you know the motorbike thing according to have the details how did he come up with the alias of Mason's Saunders instead of going with you know his own name Madison Bumgarner sell it this came from directly from the athletic article that broke the story said quote if you competed as Madison Bumgarner every phone camera in the area that would have been trained on him he said so he devised Mason Saunders the surname is the maiden name of his wife Allie Mason is a shortened version for Madison and it's something allegedly his wife called him out in public so people don't recognize them so very clever I'll give him that but I don't think the whole thing is a buzz saw her story totally bizarre and the other thing is you know if this was an NBA player everybody would recognize them already because NBA players are actually recognizable it just goes to show you how anonymous baseball players are that the most clutch postseason pitcher maybe of all time can compete in rodeos and nappy racket I think what I know it's wild lake in the in the fact is here like he continues to go what do these very risky things it just doesn't seem to care yeah if you get caught I mean there's the photo in that athletic article where he's smiling and you know he's with I guess that it's a two person thing that team roping so I hope twenty six thousand dollars I hope that Madison Bumgarner did not keep that for myself given the gigantic contract he just signed in December the but yeah he looks he's not there we is in this picture I mean I just think it's hilarious how almost incognito so many baseball players can live their lives in that matter just because they blend in because they're not these gigantic athletes by and large I mean they're not six eight or you know they don't think Shaquille o'neal out there everybody would be able to tell if you're you know for the most part with NBA athletes I just don't understand why when you have hit the genetic lottery anyway to be able to throw the ball a hundred miles an hour the end and to be able to make eighty six million dollars really it's more than that doing this why you would ever risk your body or put like what your fans in your organization is rooting for on the line so recklessly and you pointed out he already ruined the giants season aired my fantasy baseball season which is far more important Courtney by falling off of that dirt bike a couple years ago and here he is I guess he says I'm just going to live my life and Diamondbacks GM Mike Hazen told the athletic that quote he was not going to get into discussing specific contract language but you pointed this out that we know the player contracts have I can't imagine that the Diamondbacks are cool with their ace pitcher also being a rodeo road being a cowboy literally let alone they don't want to be a Dallas cowboy let alone in being a literal cowboy well I just remember a couple years ago at the end I felt combine whistle and was talking to Mike Zimmer about you know the quarterback situation at that point he had said that Sam Bradford had a degenerative knee I come to find out later that offseason I was speaking with Kyle Rudolph who said that he went skiing with Sam Bradford that off season right around the time of the combine so I'm thinking to myself you are here you are a health concern and you're going skiing or you could very easily risk tearing your ACL for a third time and you already had your season cut short because of injury like I wonder if these guys just do it for the thrill or maybe they just don't care because they have ungodly amounts of money to begin with if they feel like they can the kind of invincible they can do whatever they want but you do wonder like this has to be in contract language if you cannot do things like this because we know across sports there's certain things you're just not able to do I it's a liability reasons you ever been to a rodeo Courtney I half I went Mississippi when I work down there the show but county fair rodeo I've been to the Cheyenne frontier days shout out if you're listening in Cheyenne Wyoming on the ESPN radio affiliate there I gotta tell you it's oddly it is oddly entertaining but the the thrill of it is almost that you think that the that the ball right is just going to charge and block these cowboys into next year it is one of the most dangerous things I have ever seen and I never in my life once thought you know what it be cool to jump in there with these bowls and try to try this on for for my but how do you even practice you know you kind of just have to get in there and and take it on right yeah I guess I guess so what I mean I've seen the photos of Madison Bumgarner I'd taken the horse around the warning track at AT&T park when he was still a giant I just think that that's who he is this is got this guy is a country bumpkin at heart from North Carolina and I I just think that he grew up this way and it's always gonna be a part of him so he feels like Hey I'm an able bodied individual and I also have more money than anybody at this rodeo thing I'm gonna do what I want and it's somebody else take issue with it I'm sure they actually would found out about it right now well look I know why it's so good in the clutch in game seven of the World Series because if that that's nothing compared to facing down the eyes of a bull

Kurt Angle first of all. Thank you so much for for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me on. And let's see you're over here with them. WWe promoting the new bt sport. Yes exclusively in the UK for the two thousand and twenty busy day few. Yeah we started early morning and we're GONNA go out tonight we just have like a a gathering at bt. Not and. I think it ends at eleven o'clock but we started early morning and this is normal for for sports entertainers. Yeah do a lot of media so going a huge wrestling fan on A. You didn't have sky in your house. Yes so I was like an a young kid by Cole I was Afam. wrassling bottom was on the subway channels and I didn't have sky the watch it as much as other guys. Yeah but I was obviously a world of high beg ables. Did you know when you first joined. Because obviously in these this day and age social media the Internet you know how truly global the companies and how far you're reaches but were you aware in in the late ninety s just how many people were watching worldwide now. I I didn't watch wrestling. I didn't grow up watching it. I start watching it it would. I started so when I saw the company late ninety eight. That's when I started watching I do WanNa come on those days. But he's okay. You got quite like to find Natalie about your amateur wrestling career because as a professional sportsman. That's something that you were known for his part of your. WWe character but actually that was a huge part of your career and your life you were in a family of rest is your brother's arrest sits right yeah had four brothers. They all wrestled. They were all very successful. I was the youngest. Didn't really like wrestling. The START WITH I. I like team sports. I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood. It's a lot like this and There's no spring underneath It is self mutilation. You're you're basically beating that crap on yourself because you're allowing. I mean people were throwing around and take your head off with a clothesline and the object. You're bumping on his plywood so it was very abusive in the first day. I I didn't like it and I decided to hang in there. I came back the next day and I continued on. I got used to bumping and and used the pain so eventually didn't bother me as much but I'm paying for it. Now see a leg generation before ours. My Dad's generation. They would not really look favorably upon the tablet Ali. But what these guys do is take some serious stick their body. There's some serious injuries and stuff. It's you know your two weight world champion. And you've taken many punches to the head and body is is anyone WanNa taking a lifetime. What is what is pain to you guys? How do you manage pain? Do you ever get used to it as ever become less painful or do you just become used to living in that place. It's something you get used to. And as a young boxer I think Jimmy Moore. My trainer is spoke about this and said that you can tell from a very young age or someone hazard or not and it's normally a kids barn and if they take a punch annoys on they don't cry and they punch back it's like you can't make the Paean it's like I don't know what obviously adrenaline carries you through a lot of it but it's not like a real specific. If you punch me in the arm Ni- I would feel feel more pain than actually punching ahead fate strange sensation. It's not nice but it's very very hard up. Manassas gray but law detainees. I've not been able describe pain amateur wrestling pro wrestling. What are the worst kind of pain that you can describe? And how do you deal with those. I think the worst pain I had and I still have it now as an amateur wrestling right before the Olympics I got thrown on my head and I broke my neck and I didn't know it. I kept wrestling again that day. I ended up winning the US Open and that put me in a good position to make the Olympic team for the Olympic. Trials made me the top guy so I didn't have the Russell the mini tournament Face the winner of the mini tournament. I was the guy that the mini tournament faced. So Oh i I I couldn't get passed by any doctor doctor. Wood Passer would allow me to wrestle so I eventually found a doctor and and he said the only thing you can do. You can't train you just would just stick in a neck with Nova game and you won't feel the pain. And he was right every match. I had at the trials and the Olympics. I got twelve shots. Novacaine the back of my neck couldn't feel it for about an hour and Russell and then an hour later I'd be in a lot of pain. You won the Olympic Games uh-huh with a broken neck that's insane quotes and wwe also. Yeah yeah I broke both my hands. The last vote doesn't ideal and it wasn't wasn't nice but it's hard to imagine when the pinnacle of Your Sport Olympic Games to be competing against the top guys in the world with a broken neck does that. I can't imagine boxing. We're broken hand. We are called you a few weeks ago and you said this is the most pain I think I've ever been in the radon especially she'll have a little bit of bone removed from the right time but there there was a a tendon that had ripped and it needed stitch together without that Han was give me more than than the left hand which has seven unscrews and appropriate and at night. He's but just because it had to have some work done the Tandon It was It wasn't wasn't nice. I WanNa ask you a question. Did you know ahead had a time that you're gonNA be suffering after your career from the injuries. Would you go back and when you do it all over again I we do it all over again because obviously enjoyed every bit of my career. I've been very successful more successful than I probably would have imagined. I've been lucky enough that my injuries alot. My last night I broke Mahan but previous my husband really suffered injuries but I would one hundred percent hop gum heart do it all over again. What about you? I don't know I mean I'm I'm hurting pretty badly my knees my back my neck. Sometimes I think about you know what when I go back my quality of life right now socks so I do have a lot of suffering. I had a painkiller addiction overcame about six years ago and you know stay clean and struggle. In the way I have been very difficult. was there a lot of pressure even when you had injuries week in week out to go and perform Tom. Did you ever feel that. You couldn't say no part of the problem no I I. Nobody ever forced me to do anything. There are a lot of times. I had a a great doctor that you gave me off had three neck surgeries and he was very easy to manipulate. So you know when I broke my neck and I had surgery I would talk him into clear Amina go back early and At the time he didn't have their wellness policy L. A. C. set where they had their doctor clear. You we go to our own doctor and I was able to do that a couple of times where I should have.

But the you have understand that when I'm on these guys. I'm also speaking from facts, so I wanna say disappointing because guess what you kind of three back games and the games account. If you close those out before I'll be forgot so who's had more disappointed. However, if you go after twenty eight in a regular season, and you drop down to eighteen especially this round. That's not good knows told I was told that maybe you're PPG's, you gotta have five sometimes you gotta have seven and the great ones ads but a kit. So you know, and that's called being dominant.

First of all, let's review just a couple of things here before I let you go. I would be whenever you got in the O Z pissed off zone. I wasn't anything from what I said. First of all, my wife would have killed me Susie. And then Secondly globally. Against with even if he did something. Thank you. Okay. All right. Then I guess you walk. I'll take credit those everybody that could cause it's to get. In our profession. Sensitive, but I was on work and get your second. So even said something crazy, I would watch it, and I listened at I'd be real myself, which so most of the time, I is about pretty we should have memorial. And you can't get mad about that. 'cause it's the truth. I was a terrorist. But I get this off that, you know, don't get my respect. People don't play Tim. Also, I would say all that stuff. We've only day Roberson. I don't think he could give me an autograph kill them. So all this stuff was stuff that motivate. Well, I mean how. Yeah. Forty nine. But if you're made to those that I think that you'd never be a great big man inside cut some grass. You are who you are great big lassos. But you are who you are shacking. That means you're also still in the peo- Z like you were with Charles, and Kenny and all the other day. I mean, it's when you get in the peo- Z, I could see it on the air because again guys like sat get in the POC herbs gotten in the peo- Zee on the air with me, and it's tough to get you. You know, all time great athletes out of the Z on the air. I felt for Ernie a little bit there. But he started laughing how long does it take you to get out of the POC on inside the NBA show? Probably well. Because you know, the with those guys even when not guys area exploded areas like you. You can say whatever you wanna say just to take McKinney. Chuck when they get me an as I know that I can't do not doing good believe because we're brothers. So I don't know if you have any brothers rich. But I'm sure would that be brother.

It's fun to watch. I'll tell you that because they love what they know..

"He is many people will just sitting there stream on green to you could say that he's playing in similar role to green the running an offense through him. In the same way that the warriors is Bj Armstrong points out that that they run the offense through Draymond green and the nuggets are one win away. And if the rockets pull it off. They have home-court advantage in the Western Conference finals. These are facts. These are all facts, you're right. And and if the box move forward, and it's a I mean, it's we can sit here and say, you know, everyone's assuming okay being old school. Sixers Celtics Eastern Conference files, sharp, elbows, bad blood. I don't think we're getting that. And I think we had the exact opposite is the way thinks it right now box raptors, but as we're sitting here right now, it is totally possible. The Denver finishes this series off. The blazers hoping to push a game seven, but they're terrific. I mean, Maury Millsaps they are terrific. And we were talking about that the last couple of days with Irv and Mitch Richmond. Who sat in their a team unless you're a die hard fan. You're not seeing a lot of them. You're not seeing them a lot of national television. Oh, you don't really know much about them. So you're really getting introduced a who these guys are you realizing jokers one of these fantastic young players twenty four years old using Jamal Murray. Same thing guy who can really fill up the box score and score thirty plus on a on a given night. And you're really learning. How entertaining and fun this team is right? You know, Michael Malone the head coach or worrying about him. So they're really a fun team. And forget their the two seed like you just said if the rockets somehow pull this off. Yeah, they have home court advantage Millsap, also a second round, selection, you know, and and minimal just put a little point on this. And then I'll let you know who's on the show, and it's gonna be a lot of fun. With with the nuggets playing the way that they are. And the reason why we don't pay attention to them is again tonight is warriors and rockets Michael wilbon on the show top of our three. I mean, this is it we're talking about the warriors the champions the rockets who last year had the best chance to beat them. You also have again the team that the nuggets are beating right now in the blazers that first round series between the blazers in Oklahoma City thunder featured, obviously Oklahoma City trying to get into the realm of rockets. Warriors with former MVP Russell Westbrook. Mr. triple double himself with Paul George who Oklahoma City acquired and then remarkably kept even though the Lakers had a welcome mat out four Paul George with LeBron James here, and then you also have in the Western Conference. A Spurs team coached by an iconic first ballot hall of fame coach, I mean, I could go on and on. And so the reason why I mean the Lakers got better run nationally than the nuggets. For sure sure will bombs going to be calling in from Oakland. And we've got a die hard blazers fan on the show to lament. He's non other than the actor who plays dollar Bill stern on billions, which I appeared on Sunday night. I was called evading that caper since January. You really worried that a nice shot that in January and his the scene was fantastic. I couldn't have been happy the way it all played out. I got so many tweets from people snuck up on a lot of people. Kelly. Aucoin is the actor's name. He's in. Also, he was great in the Americans house of cards fans of the blacklists know him as well. He's a diehard blazers fancy. He's gonna call in talk basketball and our billion sane sweet. And Liam Cunningham is on this program. He is a really wild new national NAT GO show called the hot zone. And it's a heck of a cast. That's in this as well. And he's joining us on this program and our number three. He also plays.

"I mean, if the bucks don't win the series. I'd be so shocked, I'm bucks or the Jaanus is unbelievable. And then you gotta give it up to the nuggets. 'cause we're you know, there's that bright shiny object that game pivotal game. Five tonight in Oakland that bright shiny object known as the back to back world champions who are either ten wins away from a championship right now or two losses away from a remarkable season. Finish that leaves that taste in Durant's mouth as he heads towards free age. You wanna talk about a team blowing up a man, I think warriors lose the next two games. We're going to see some big chain. I mean, I think we're all assuming that if the warriors don't make it out of this round. It's game seven loss at home. You don't really think the the rockets are gonna pull off two more wins in a row. Tonight's pivotal game. Five go, home and wrap it up and six. Oh, man. Rocket rocky tonight walk it rockets win tonight. They're going to win at home. Then you can't say that you got to you got back to. Let's let's take it one at a time on that front. Okay. Let's say one of the time on that front. I think must win tonight for Golden State win four in a row against Golden State. That is in that they played really well during the regular season one three out of four I get it. When harden had blood coming out of his is walking off that floor down. Oh, two in Oakland. They accomplish what they needed to do. Get to this game tonight tied at two apiece. Which few people thought possible based on the way that they lost the first two games in Oakland and harden. Yeah, no doubt. Being unable to see clearly. And then again, you gotta give it up to the nuggets. Dude. Give it up to the Denver Nuggets. Who are slowly but surely making their way through the playoffs with a big game five blow out of the blazers last night. And this guy Yokich. Well, I mean, I've heard his name pronounced so many different ways Jokic Yokich Nikola Nikola. I mean what he is though is maybe the best second round draft choice. We've seen. In a while. And it's it's an interesting group right here. This guy's a second round pick a forty first overall selection of the two thousand fourteen draft seven footer from Serbia, and he is just been nothing short of an absolute revelation. Shooting from all over the place playing defense run in the floor. And then his best ability might be passing. The baseball passes the link to the floor the finding of his teammates open. I mean, you know, when I talk about how great the second round pick..

"Final results of the poll question. Mclovin. We had the great who's the greatest score, Michael Kobi and Harvard and Michael. Ran away with it. It's the I don't know how you phrase it. So I could actually win the poll question, but it's it's the most versatile offensive weapon. And I think harden is the most versatile offensive weapon end. Look, you know, maybe it's semantics here if I if I finesse it enough, then you'll agree. Yeah. You're right. James harden is I think he's the most versatile offensive weapon in modern day basketball history. A lot of people coming at you with the era different in the defensive. And I get that in you know, what would Michael be now in what would Kobe now in the three point shot. That's the difference. Hardens ability to shoot deep. Separates him from a lot of players because Kobe and Mike could get to the rim. A lot of guys can get to the room. But you know, he's got that ability to go twenty five feet fifteen feet or dunk on you. That's that's rare. What did you? Learn Todd rob gronkowski. Put a dent in the Lombardi trophy by using the data bunting baseball with it wasn't thinking, mclovin.

And I think Reggie Miller is going to work with him this summer all talk to Reggie again about that. Because he he kinda hinted at that and said, you know, I'm I'm gonna get in the lab with him this summer and helping with his jump shot what we learned..

But Ville L M reaction perk. Killed Ellen beach reaction post game is the reason why I thought he did that with intent because, you know, Jared, Allen's a guy who wants to block your shot and Embiid, you know, gave him a little bit more emphasis there, and then he laughed about it where he was like he felt bad. But and he started giggling Zeile that that that made him guilty. So you have to move to know him in bed on those. The last that because when I'm be says he'll sorry. You're not sorry.

"So, but but then I love you. But you might be wrong on this big love and backmile. You know, I got you shocked. But my point is shack the that way, James harden beach. You is he's the most versatile he can shoot the three he can shoot mid range. He can get to the hoop. He can dunk on you. He draws fouls. I just think as in Jordan and Coby, you know, unstoppable, but hardened beach you he can score on you in different ways. Now, I know the game is different. But I'm gonna give you two times. Okay. Caller with the Hanjour the rule. They let you do. They was going to direct you the way they wanted you to go. So now the question is if we still ahead on rules in place, whether it be able to do that. I don't know. I'm just saying. Well, I think hardens mastered the current rules. I think we can both agree on that. Right. Okay. All day every day. Move on the grace of play I've seen on time. But you just said to best of all gods. He's not there yet. And he's got to have postseason success as well. And I think that's really what's that the glaring omission from his is resumes hardened hasn't done. Well in the postseason. Why is that right? I don't know. I mean, you know, you you live. There's always the saying you live by Joe Joe. Joe takes a lot. So, you know, and then you know, this year has been even playing well put big numbers, mafia. Or is that he may get tired. Then the you no longer. This thing goes over doesn't happen. I want them to have great success. But we shall see. And that's why you know, the playoffs always exciting. This. You never know what you're going to get. Have we seen the likes of Zion? Williamson before in the NBA. Of course. You killed Bron James. Yeah. Oh, Robert tractor trailer. Charles barkley. We have. How successful do you things? Ions going to be because you mentioned those guys in some guy's worse. Successful in some guys weren't. It's hard to tell you six of them the most successful about oh, God, he can shoot a little bit. I really haven't seen them. Do a lot of polls moves because the team that they run run run. He's going to do very well. But, you know, the postseason inserting games, you gotta, you know, slow it down, you know, take advantage of mashups and all that stuff. I woke him well as well with the drought and coaching them. But you know on the break on the fence breakage. Amazing a freakish. We and he's definitely don't be them. One bit. However. Just a name. I haven't been hearing that should be hanging bowl bone look for bowling bowl. This kid can do it. All okay. If you had the number one pick. Well, if I had someone pickup I'm gonna go with you know, it was on. But I'm UCLA putting on those all euros NBA teams. Yeah. Ball bowl is Vogel is Greek freak without this rinse.

"I mean, how much some it was scheme fell. Like remember, these to do all that pre snap off everyone figured that out yet sweep all that stuff. Yeah. I I would probably sell the Rams with that. The number there from Vegas. Yep. Oh, any fan base have higher expectations in the chiefs? You gotta be insane with Mahomes. What guys like twenty four years old? I wouldn't have high expectations this year. If I were a cheese fan, I would start making. I would I would like plan to go to the Super Bowl this year. Oh, I wouldn't. I I'm saying I would have that level of hope my team. But but I don't know what's happening with tyreek hill. So if if the most dangerous player in the NFL gets suspended now you've got to replace him. You have to replace the hunt as you're running back and you got Kelsey coming off an injury. And what does Mahomes do for on court because everybody now has at least sixteen eighteen games with Patrick Mahomes that they can study and figure out. Okay. What are we force him to do? What does he not like to do is great as he is every every quarterback has faced this. You know, they eventually go Kay. We're going to take away that or we're going to force you to do that. And they'll try to do that with Patrick Mahomes this year, but with those weapons, you know, you can make. A case. Nobody had better skill position players than Patrick Mahomes tight end great wide receivers the most dangerous player in the NFL. And you had a running back who was great as well. And you know, you're not quite sure what you have going into this season. So my expectation level with Kansas City would be tempered because I don't even what I'm going to have on defense there. They lost Justin Houston deformed. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm not quite sure what I'm getting with Kansas City. They're the Browns. I would lower my expectations. I would I would I would want to be pleasantly surprised if I'm a Browns fan where you go. Gosh. I hope we get you know, back to seven or eight eight wins. That would be great. If you happen to get to nine or ten great celebrate party. But I I would go in with some trepidation there because all of those personalities keeping everybody happy, and then you got a coach who's never been a head coach on this level before. And you got that front office that. That owner that sometimes getting away. I'd like a segue. Try for trip. Next, tempered or title, but it did do. But I was always amazed. That ESPN could sponsor just about anything just about anything. So when you say that a six pack of hot question. I'm ever had to do the cores light, silver bullet six pack of questions or something. Oh god. And we bring in Sean Salisbury for that, Sean. And then we would always tape it during the afternoon prior sportscenter. And then you sit there and you go question number two, the cores lay silver bullets six pack of questions that Wendy's. Triple. Three questions for MAURICE Jones through. They did sponsor anything everything. They did. That's why they're worth a couple of billion dollars already poll question. What do we have? So I put up who's the it's unfair to put up as a poll, but who is the better offense player. I think the best the better, I gave Jordan Kobe and harden, and as you'd expect it's Jordan poll everyone voted for Jordan. Yeah. And what happens is people misconstrued this that, you know, I'm saying that James harden is better than Michael Jordan. He's a better. He's a more versatile offensive weapon than Michael in Kobe..

"Browns in Annapolis colts, LA chargers. Philadelphia Eagles all those teams are nine and a half or Bob in win. Expectation basically expected to be the playoff teams, which of those teams would you say like, Ooh, I could see going south the Browns. Your pooh-poohing. I I don't want to do. But I I have a coach who came out of nowhere to become the head coach. Freddie kitchens. I I don't know if he can handle all of this mean, we we look at Baker Mayfield, go boy. Yeah. He was crazy surprise people. Odell Beckham junior who's gonna prove people wrong. Jarvis Landry got running backs. Kareem hunt gets a second chance. Like, it's it's right for disappointment is much as we want to go. Boy, this could go great. Are you saying the Browns are back? Back to being the old Brown and that would be the Browns of back. I hope not because that could be a really fun team to watch. And even if they start to implode they could still be a fun team to watch. But you got a lot of personality there, and I got a coach who you know, you haven't been there. He'd never been. There was a head coach came out of nowhere. Mclovin. I have. So with you. I don't you feel like either eleven or four who knows I feel like ten or six if all goes well for the Browns not ten and six, but there were there'd be six and ten or ten and six what about the Rams at ten point five that feels like a little top heavy for me right now there were three. Yeah. But but they geared up to to go to a Super Bowl and they got to that Super Bowl. You know that you brought in some guys, and I just don't know what's happening with Todd Gurley. In dominic. Sue is gone. Do you that defense, you know, that secondary those guys year older Goff? You get Cooper Cup. Back is going to be completely healthy. I do like the other wide receivers there. I just don't know if you have a number one receiver there. Yes. Mclovin possible. The NFL figured out Sean McVay little B's during the playoffs the win total. I mean the point started going away.

"You let man city Tottenham yesterday. Dan. I did it's an instant classic. I did I did watch in class. And yeah, I did watch that yesterday a little bit. Anything else? I need to know from that us five. Great seconds right there. Thank you bang. All right. Shaquille. O'neal will join us coming up in about fifteen minutes. We been talking a lot about the NFL schedule. And then we got sidetracked a little bit. I was watching James harden last night do it again. And I just thought and I've been feeling this this year, we got past the James harden fascination, it didn't take long, but then you go. Okay. Yeah. He put up fifty in fifteen and seven rebounds. Whatever we're waiting for something to happen with him in that is the playoffs because that's where you know, you put your stamp of approval on a great player. It always comes back to that. When you say, well, what did he do in the postseason? How many championships did he win? If he gets by the warriors. Okay. That that's that's an accomplishment here. But he's got to have some post season success. You know, when you start talking about great players of all time we start counting up rings. And we do that in all sports. Maybe not as much in baseball. But we certainly do in football with quarterbacks and we do in basketball, which is with all players because your greatness, usually comes down to what did you do in the postseason might not be a fair litmus test. But that's what we do. We count rings we count championships and his greatest James harden is he doesn't have much postseason success to show for that already the NFL schedule. And I looked at the raiders and felt like the NFL was going to send them off with some nice parting gifts, and hey, you don't wanna play in Oakland. Well, and you're going to go seven weeks without playing in Oakland. How's that? And they got you know, these one o'clock eastern time zone game. They got seven of those the last time that happened to a west coast team two thousand two so the raiders I think got a really tough schedule, and they could probably take it personally. They're the patriots have an easy schedule. But it feels like that's because the AFC east is not very good. But also when. You think of your team right now? I don't care who you who you root for like you. You'll look at it. And you go we could surprise some people. Maybe maybe maybe we could get nine wins here. Maybe we could slip into a wild card here. I don't know. If you go we at no shot like what fan base goes. We have no shot this year. Miami. I think they're over under his four and a half Redskins not a bad team. But the quarterback situation. Yeah. But then you go, you know, what we trade for Josh wrote? What have we got drew lock in the dry like you you convince yourself that, you know, want. Maybe who else would be up there. Mclovin. But I got the Redskins. Schedule is brutal. If they draft a rookie, they're not putting him out against the schedule. Let's see the other losing teams. The giants are still pretty low on the the winless where do you where do you put them? They're probably six wins. Aren't they? Which what's Vegas had the giant. Yeah. The five worst teams, according to Vegas over under of wins. Cardinals. Bengals dolphins giants raiders in lines. That those all teams Vegas expects them have six wins or fewer so lions raiders Redskins. Giants dolphins. Karnal cardinals bangles are very low to. Yeah. Different casinos. Yeah. If I'm a Bengal fan 'cause I probably look at this is the final year of Andy Dalton now. Fine. Thank you. Oh, breathe new life. They're gonna they're gonna start four one. I looked at the schedule. They are. I did exactly what you said fads, and then they finish four and twelve well, then someone gets hurt like every single year and stop it seem like the Bengals are the only one who has injuries that. There's certain teams that get more injured the Redskins or the leader in that clubhouse. They have thirty guys you're such an apologist for Andy Dong, busy. He's so underrated. He he was doing great when you're there were nine to one. And he broke his thumb on it last year..

Like, I never knows like Jordan Kobe and LeBron they got to do things. I could do I wanted to be a force in the middle that people were afraid of. So I don't get offended when people do not put my name in that category. That's not what I was looking for. Okay. So the three if you had to choose one is the greatest of all time, I don't like shoes. 'cause I know all the guys, but for me see Mike do some things never seen either. The guys do what that Mike use USA tell opponents when he was going to do and how and how he was gonna do it. I know the way he did he just you know, he wasn't.

And at some point the best has to fall. But the best always stays on top for long term. Like, I remember bird matches going back and forth. And it was just great TV. Great great for these guys. I know, and I I loved it too. But I don't I don't think that days ever coming back though. Right. I mean, don't you think 'cause it seems to me that that that you're hearing Anthony, I it's it's an obvious play to get to Los Angeles. Otherwise, why open the window now for New Orleans fans to be so pissed off about they already just apparently removed him from the video of inch for the team to be introduced the pre-game hype video for the team moved Davis from it. You know, he's hurt right now. Anyway, they took him out because they don't want him to. Be booed. The only reason to put yourself through two and a half months of being a public enemy in your hometown is to try and get out of there right now. So that's the move. And then there's an idea that Cairo would be willing to come now. Because he said that he apologized to LeBron that for not realizing the bronze style before. I mean, it looks like that's coming together. Right now, it may you know, the question of ask yourself all those pieces coming out lay. Can they still be Golden State owned thing? I agree with you. I think this thing is there. Anybody right now? No, you know, I don't even need to finish the. Well, enough awhile because Steve Kerr has plan. Unbelievable basketball like four or five a legitimate stars team. But they play store unselfish slot of team. When a lot of great time on it. But you know, one guy wants to all the ball too, much one guy wants to sheep, forty three. So I mean, he's Steve just having moved the ball is actually a excellent brand to watch. Like, I've watched many times they always play the same way and stuff curries just unbelievable Lancair d Mark. They're they're they're definitely gonna be a tough team to be. But again, when you dealing with sports, I wanna team to challenge them and to try to be able to beat them imagine like underdogs Milwaukee facing the final and beaten. That's a great sports story that we can always tell seven games though. Right. That's the issue. Again, Brady's here and his ninth Sukhpal his first all he had to do is just four quarters against nine. Yeah, right now. So does that make him to go? Oh, okay. Oh, no. No, no. Yeah. That's that's too. Besides family when you agree. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I mean nine and he's doing it at age forty and forty one back to back Super Bowls, and you know, as you pointed out about super teams he's done it with different running backs. If he did have Randy moss at one point. And almost went perfect. But it is just those four quarters in the same way the four quarters he came up with against Kurt and Marshall Falk and Isaac Bruce Torry Holt to to win his first same could happen for golf and everybody else this weekend. Happened for Eli twice. I mean happens. The reason why love him because he never panics when the Super Bowl was when they were playing the falcons, our sit next mug different Willie McGuinness and we sitting in the box a whole bunch of fats.

"And and so we felt hey, well, maybe were guys we can coach him up in mold him into west coast offense of kind of guy. That's all and everybody passed on Tom Brady, as you know in in everyone, but nine soon what you're saying. But but Tom went to the Harvard of the midwest Tahoe. Let me Tom Tom wasn't too much slower than than than the goat farmer. You know, or this shepherd or whatever you wanna call him. I mean, what do you mean? He's Tom God love him. He still has the slowest forty time of quarterbacks in the combine ever. Okay. So he's not fast so much for the forty time at quarterback, right? But speaking of the Harvard of the midwest, that's a misnomer. Alright. Let me ask you a question. Okay. Which school which university yester- of higher learning has the most quarterbacks to appear in the Super Bowl. Let's open that up to the audience, which you know. I know what that is the one that you you coached at Cal Berkeley, mice Cal has five quarterbacks that made it to this game. Can you name them? I've got I've got you are not I've got blood got golf. Thank you Aaron Rodgers. Yup. Vince ferragamo? Yes. Damage now, beginning Warren Beatty. Who are the other two Joe Kapp? Wow. When did he play in the Super Bowl for the Vikings? Okay. Or act and and Craig Morton. Okay five, and I think the next best is three. So why did I say that? I have no idea. CJ Anderson's from Cal to thrown out trivia throw a smokescreen up because he draft Brady that basically what's happening right now. Are we going to break you got some else? Is he coming?

You're going to do a rap video. No, I'm not gonna do rap video and Monday, we recorded over there where they do ludicrous and everybody else over there is this big time studio. Bob Whitfield from Stanford owns the place. So this is part of game day morning. Yeah. Oh, my running against you. God, my wife doesn't see it because she will not be there.

"Carol. I've known forever back in the day. TSP n we'd launched the NFL network together. And and they're you know, the Rams are. I mean to say, they're ready. I mean, they're not breaking any any news. Everybody can't wait to display the game right now. I know ready to go. But I mean, what lesson did with CJ Anderson. Dante Fowler was the mid season. And he was the one who created the pressure on breeze that led to the interception and overtime. Obviously dom. Ensue and a keep to Leib and Marcus Peters, and then Brandin cooks only acquired but paid girly. Not only paid Aaron Donald paid. Everybody's happy in everybody's ready. Yeah. And and that offense of line is dynamite. But the patriots one is to it really is a terrific match up. It is really is. And I'm I'm glad we're not talking about the saints. Call non call and all that we if you went to. But it is a good matchup in that Rams team. Probably patriot fans. Yeah. There's like this. But I think the Rams have the better roster from top to their eight first round draft choices on their defense alone. I mean this team is stacked and not to mention the guys they have on offense to their stacked with great player. I don't know how less needs a forty and all of these good players. You know, can't keep them all forever. But no, this is their window. It helps to have gone in his first contracts, it's imperative that you have right. A quarterback with training wheel contract yet to be able to afford all these because when golf signs big one a lot of these guys are gone, but they got another year to do this. But you know to get all those guys on board and then just out of nowhere. Just go get C, J Anderson. Are you kidding me? A smart so Steve Mariucci here on the rich Eisen shoney's a perfect to talk about Tom Brady with since he was one address GIO Mani Giovanni Kamasi in front of him. And I didn't know anything about him being goat farmer. I really didn't at the time. So it was you and Bill Walsh. She did. It wasn't just you. Right. Who drafted karma Z? Now, you didn't have even Brady on the board. You even have him on the on the board. When you went with Carmody. Do I have to go through this again? Yes. What makes you think? I just did this in radio row. So so here's what happened with Tom Brady coming Kurt Warner and get drafted either. Nobody drafted the guy. Nobody you cut him. Yes. We cut him because he wasn't ready. So so. For most just taking ELS right now. So here's the deal rich. This is the way we love each other. So in Tom Brady, we had the same agent. Don Yee, I didn't even know that. No you do. And so, but here's the deal when you put your board up your draft board in the National Football League you have to especially at quarterback because that's the crap shoot call him. I you don't know. But there are different categories of quarterbacks. We had a guy named Steve Young. I dunno. If you ever heard of all, right? And he was an athlete rich. He was four or five. They were gonna move them the corner at BYU know, and then these give me one more chance and then they kept met quarterback. He was that type of an athlete, and so and he wasn't ready to be done yet. So we were going to get a young guy young athlete, mold them or whatever. And so. Tom Brady was in a category of the dropback quarterbacks is was in this category. We were looking at that category. We're looking at the athlete quarterback. Jio karma Z maybe because he was a telling I liked him. I don't know what he was a, but he was a Rhode scholar. He was four seven guide. He was point guard on the basketball team. He was in that athlete category..

"Game day morning host. We've got our more out. How long do you think this meetings going to be so on an eight and a half hour show? Yeah. Well, it's got to be two and a half hours three hours. Yeah. Then we do some radio for Kurt Warner hurt one while I mean, Kurtz, got a face for radio. So we're going to help him out. Yeah. Right. Yeah. We're do that he's going to do the game again. I know he's calling Super Bowl. Yeah. He was Tuesday. Yeah. What do you think is gonna happen Sundays? I have no idea. And It was it like. was like coming on. Last week. You know with the final four I love final fours. Whether it's college basketball or pro football rights because if your best man at your wedding. Yeah. Is turned sixty four yesterday. It was really his birthday. Yeah. Anyway, Purdue got him the other day, probably you probably texted him heckled him. I didn't do any such thing. Because we all know, it just doesn't matter till the big ten championship. Which is when I will text and heckle I'm going out there to Chicago. You wanna go no to the big ten tournament. By the way, is is this even cold too cold for you, what's happening in the mid west, even for you. So fifty seven below in Chicago wind chill, you know, schools are canceled usually cancel school because days, but not cold days. But that's football. Whether to plan a picnic where I'm from fifty seven. So you don't have any idea what's going to happen. And so Sunday's think about it. I mean, you think about it those games last championship weekend. They all going overtime. Then just it's hard to predict a winner. Risers so many good team. There were probably six or eight teams that were good enough to get to the Super Bowl out. Yes. Which is good at the league wants the league wants some parody at the top. Anyway, and try to raise up the bottom, and I think that's happening with Cleveland, but all of the games that Brady has been in the Super Bowl. And there have been many all five of his wins are come from behind win game winning drives to win the game. And all of his losses are game winning drives by ally. Manning or foles last year, you know, what I mean, they're all close. This is coming down to the last drive. So you don't even have to watch the first half just show up and watch second half. Because it's going to be determined in last five minutes. I don't that's how it's been. It's turned into an NBA. Game is what you're saying. It's unbelievable. And so that's that adds to the drama. I always like to watch the injury report. It looks like pretty pretty much anything right now. You know what? And I the only guy that I'm concerned about we're gonna talk about it. No. It's not it's. Yeah. When did he get hurt? He kicked kicked it from the early half half court as you like to call it, you know, and and he's hurt this plant leg was in a boot all week, but any real good. I'm worried about girly. They say he's not hurt. You know, what he I watched that game? Again, the other night which one which the Rams and the saints and in girlies not playing much he's in there. You know, more than you think you only had five touches, but he's passed protecting when he's in there. He scored the touchdown right before the half. And I figured oh, maybe he's feeling all right now after a couple of drop houses. Well, third quarter begins at C J Anderson for the next two drives. It was bizarre in girly wasn't. He's riding the bike at one point. He was Asian airy bike it my experience. If a guy is a little bit hurt. Yes. They wanna play there in your face. Put me back in. You know what I mean? And that wasn't the case for him. He was mellow. He was okay with it. And so it seems to me that he's hurting he's concerned about his knee. So you know, and how smart was less need to to pick up CJ ours. And telling you man that is a well. I mean less did you see he care last night? I did. Yeah. I did had dinner with the general manager and his lovely wife..
