"Like if we're not competing against each other. We are our biggest Champions if we are competing against each other all bets are off. Fuck you basically in in the nicest way of saying that with love right is like I'm you know, it's it's it's forceful. Well, that's nice that you that you have that do you guys get into like actual fights though? I don't mean physical fights. I mean, you know them.

Like, you know, there's a built-in Advantage but I never got to physical fight. I mean maybe once or twice but not really it just got you know, you just heated and and and exchanges of words. How did you feel about him getting married earlier? I feel like every single person that knows us saw that coming off because he I don't know he seemed I've always been sort of of a Wandering Spirit if that makes sense, and I've never really had a set career like he he works in politics. He works for the governor of Delaware and he's known that he wanted to work in politics from a very young age like as a politician. And so he knew he worked in the city government in New York in education. He works in the state government Delaware in education and he's brilliant and you know so much about this issue and he is going to have a very long successful political career, but I didn't have the same feeling when I was younger. I started out in the music industry. I thought it was going to be like a, you know, a boring white boy song songwriter playing love songs and coffee houses and like I did that for maybe six months my parents were like, please go back to grad school. So I did and I were and I studied music in business and I I began my my career wage all you know, internships and full-time jobs in the music industry, and then I moved in in sort of a weird pivot to funny or die and then got into comedy and so then I was in comedy and now I'm in this like civic education and political So I've had a bunch of like different careers and trajectories and changes either because I'm a TD or I'm just sort of like following, you know, following things following my gut but my brother has been sort of like this is what I want to do. I want to have a family by this age that sort of thing more kind of by the book I write so music was the thing that you were pursuing the beginning. That was my that was my dream. I did music all throughout colleague what my baseball career ended. I did music all through college and I did acapella I didn't I discover but I'm still in the nineties, and obviously we have not been able to play in a while. It was back in in February, but we I've just been doing music my whole my whole life and in honestly the tiptoeing into the comedy world through music is what sort of led me to to find your time.

"Was a consent decree that the the Republican National Committee could not organize Finance encourage poll Watchers of anything else. Nature for thirty-five years. Unfortunately that expired in 2017. So this is the first presidential election since the expiration of that quote unquote consent decree that the Republican boss isn't Bound by that and they have announced an initiative a few months ago to recruit 50,000 poll Watchers and and use 20 million dollars to finance the the these people watching the polls make sure nothing quote unquote nefarious is going on. So that's what I think you answered. My question was going to be what is a poll Watcher. So poll Watchers are supposed to be like Hall monitors for voting off their actual. So there is there is a technical use of poll Watcher in the sense of like lawyers, like sometimes nonprofits will send like the ACLU will send a lawyer to a polling place to make sure it's running smoke in people's constitutional rights are being infringed. So, you know that would fall into the category of poll Watcher the poll Watchers I'm talking about that are you know being reported on right are people who aren't necessary. The lawyers and just parts of like members of a militia just showing up to a polling place with guns and intimidating people from casting their vote through violence intimidation. That seems so illegal. It is except that because of the Second Amendment in service dates. You can have open carry some states. You can't so it depends on the state. But if you're not threatening people with anything, you're not even holding it you just are having it in your holster and standing there, you know you the argument could be made that you're not intimidating anybody but you know, these situations could go south quickly. There could be a confrontation. There could be actual violence on Election Day and you know, unfortunately this country hasn't happened in a long time. But this country does have a History of Violence on Election Day. Hm when was the last time was 1981 was there actual violence or intimidation? I don't know if there was actual violence, but I do know that it successfully intimidated people away from the polls, which is what led to the the court case..

"I'd only had one civics class and that was in eighth grade and I breezed through it because my parents had taught me all of this stuff and it was only because I had the the privilege or luck of being born in DC being having parents who worked this job and them taking the liberty of sharing it with me off. So my early interest and familiarity purely came by by luck and and having parents who taught us to me. What is the definition of civics? So Civics is the rights of responsibilities of being a citizen of the country and it's different from history as you pointed out, which is really like the the premise of the book is that wage when you pointed out. Well you use some you summarized it quite well and what's really interesting about about Civics versus history is that yeah. We are it's sort of gets shoehorn Social Studies or gets thrown into history, but it's sort of like, there's like the rules and the and how things work and then there's the story of how they came up with the rules and the amazing people that gathered in the bathroom and came up with and it just it all bleeds together and they're really different things. There's history which is a wholly separate from Civics there certainly are related and one leads to the other but they are different things and one is sort of the story of how things came to be and the other is the blueprint for us over two hundred years later to know how to operate the country. I mean obviously some of that is I would imagine just because that's how things are always done and people are just kind of that's how we've always done it and these are the textbooks we buy and not well actually, I mean I suspect I've been out of school for a long time but I suspect what is being taught as history is changing a little but the emphasis on History vs Civics is obviously like home part of it is just habit but you suspect there's something a little more nefarious right? So I was pretty surprised to learn that in 1796 George Washington gave this whole speech is final State of the Union and he was like guys we have to teach everyone how to run the country that we just set up for them a few years ago and it didn't end up happening..

"Hello everyone and welcome to frames. My name is Scott Olsen and I am talking today with Beowulf Sheehan. Beowulf is one of the most sought after most successful and I believe most important portrait photographers in New York. These days he has worked in more than fifty countries lectured at New York University and Yale among other places and if you go to his website you will see portrait of people like Oprah Winfrey Twenty Morrison Patti Smith Margaret Atwood Patrick Stewart in Kellyn Paul Simon and dozens and dozens of others. It is a body of work of which I am personally Quite envious good morning. Bill could he's got great to hear Your Voice. I do have a quick thought for you. I've not traveled to fifty countries the photograph I photographed in better than ten by way of commissions however I have photographed people from at least fifty countries and hopefully been able to travel to their worlds in cultures through those experiences. Okay I saw that on your resume and I was impressed and I'm still impressed. So tell me how things are in New York this morning. New York is a beautiful place this morning. The air is cool and crisp outside. I did have a short walk this morning. I am very fortunate that out my window. I have a cemetery so I get to see less trees and I have a great deal of quiet. What sounds I hear. Every morning in this new time of ours is usually One of two things that I hear all either your birdsong or I will hear the sound of a passing ambulance and of course happy to hear the former not to hear the ladder. That is the time in which we live summer mornings in New York. City yes Tell me about portrait photography but let let let's begin where people how in the world could you get into photography? How did you get into the kind of portraiture that you do specifically I into photography being a shy boy and wanting to make friends and prior to the thought of making friends? I wanted to be reacquainted with my father. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. My father was out in my life for a few years and when he came back the beginning of my high school years he had a Konica thirty five millimeter camera. A Long Lens to go with it and when I arrived at high school which was a high school outside of my neighborhood I went to magnet high school for foreign languages. I was busted very early in the morning to get there. I was in the ethic minority in head a world of new friends to make and when I got to school my classmates were speaking about two things with which I was unfamiliar of the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and girls and I knew very little about both but I had been working in the summers and not really spend that money on anything beyond books and comic book so I had enough money saved to become the youngest person in the history of the Miami Dolphins the buy season tickets to the Miami Dolphins. That's impressive I go So what I had done was than I began to use my father's camera and I would take a tripod that camera that long lens invite a new acquaintance from high school to eat game. And I believe my mother had driven been to us down To attend these games and no one ever stopped me. The guards were very kind. They recognize me after a few games. I always went through the same gate that sort of thing and was able to watch Dan Marino or the ball around and make pictures and then make Prince of those pictures and share them with classmates over time developing friendships and of course Getting to know my father again. That's a wonderful beginning there. Is I know an extraordinary event. Though in your early connection to reading and that's possible yes but but I'll let you lead that so when you're asking the extraordinary connection is well. Yeah you you are probably the only you are the only person I know who's ever been bitten by an alligator. Oh this is true this this. I don't know all the people in your life of course who you know but but I'm the only person I know who's been bitten by an alligator and that happened to me in the summer of nineteen seventy six in June of that year. I was of course on summer break from school quite small and my brother and I were playing in the backyard of the home of a friend of my mother in southwest Fort Lauderdale where there are canals and those canals in some cases feed than Their Way West to the Florida everglades and of course. That's where alligators hang out. And some of them sometimes get lost. My brother-in-law had been wrestling. This lady's backyard was time to come into the House for lunch. I had asked the Lady of the House. If we could use your host wash our feet persons they were full of dirt from the grass and the young lady had said no actually better just a spicer feed off the dock and then it'll be quicker and I went I. I remember sitting at the dock. Enjoying splash on my feet and looking at my brother and my brother's twenty months younger than me made his eyes get bigger and he looks down on my foot. I looked at my foot and I saw the alligator close. Its mouth around my right foot and I went to some degree of shock. The allegation let go. He caught the outside artery of my ankle and bloodshot out. Allah a bad money iphone sketch. And my my brother then began to grab my body to try to pull my body up and my mother and my mother's friend of course had come out of the house at this time and they were lifting me from the document onto the grass. The allegation had gone back under the dock. And I don't know how much more time passed or how much blood I lost but I then at some point found in the emergency room of a hospital where my brother was born. Only a few blocks away and doctors worked in saved my foot. Save my leg. There was concern for infection loss and I was very lucky to have for the balance of the summer. Have Gone to the hospital every day to get my foot. Epsom salts to save it and that meant of course not being able to play games at not being able to enjoy summer camp not being able to do sports do much of anything involved mobility and that deepened my reading and then with it of course my drawing and my reading and drawing through my childhood in and beyond began with comic books and then onto more challenging books More INTERESTING BOOKS. Maybe more interesting stuff. The right word say because books are wonderful. And they're very very interesting. Otherwise we wouldn't have these films adaptations of stories that now the masses is seen film but the the books of course comic books would come out once a month and it was great to go to seven eleven after school and pick up those books but I would devour them so quickly and then I really wasn't in the mood to wait another month for the next book to come out so I would just draw stories myself. The drawing worked its way over time of course into photography. But that's a longer compensation which I'm happy to have the most remarkable series of connections though to have a traumatic injury lead to more reading time to then lead to a particular niche that you've carved out a which is a among other things in your portfolio literary portraits. Do you remember who your first contact was in the literary world as a photographic subject? Three things happen within a few months time of each other. I ahead as I began to dive into. This world already studied photography. Formerly I'd studied at New York University. Got My master's there and I studied with the year track program at ICP International Center photography which has a partnership program with New York University and I had assisted. A number of photographers was continuing to assist to learn as much as I could and I done. Independent workshops with photographers. Both here and abroad to that point and within a few months of each other three things happened. I was very involved with the German community at New York University. My mother's from Humboldt. And so I. I'm very enamored with her culture. Her language my family of course and I wanted to keep that going so I was hanging out often deutsches Haus the cultural arm of Newark University and Deutsches Haus had a writer in residence program and the Director of that program had asked me if I would make portraits of those writers so every six weeks there was another writer from a dramatic country and that led to some early Photo sessions with some great great writers among them. Daniel Kinman who had yet to publish a book called the world to enjoy the success that it did went on to become the best selling book in the history of Germany after the Bible it was so successful in Germany that was actually read on the radio or certain amount of time every day overtime. And can you imagine in our lifetimes that happening in this country it? What a great great thing and his publisher saw the pictures. We'd made and went onto ben a reach out to me for commissions for photographs of writers here who were being published by that publisher in Germany. That was one thing that happened. Another thing that happened was that I actually had my start in fashion. I knew a number of people net world. I wasn't really right for that world The Whiter Hilton. All's who at some point I'd photographed had once famously written it. Fashion is for the masses in style is for the individual and I'm very curious by people have style Fashion is perhaps a different thing. And there's amazing amazing latitude for creativity. Some of the greatest photographers in history. made their mark through fashion. But I found myself in photographing for fashion years ago. More interested in the people who were wearing the clothes in what they had to say than the clothes themselves. Oh My F- tell me about what makes a portrait beyond just very good what what makes it excellent. I'm looking at your about. I'm looking at your body of work here and I should by the way pause here to tell the people who are listening if they want to sort of follow along on your website which is Beowulf Shan Dot Com. Spell it out your B O W L F no space S. H. E. E. H. A. N. dot com beowulf. Sheehan DOT COM I'm looking at your body of work here. That's on the website and some of the people there. Their faces are a world known Winfrey for example. We all know what she looks like. It's there's one type of challenge in coming up with a extraordinary portrait of her. There are dozens of authors whose works we may know but their faces are complete blanks to us. How how do you go about bringing them to life as well? What Right Greg Questions? Well I'm going to quickly finish up answering the prior question. Which is that through the fashion world. I was asked to do a story for Vogue. Nippon which is Japanese Vogue and it had a story called fashioned biography. Fashion biography wasn't end of magazine. Last page one page story on somebody who had been in fashion and now is doing things and I photographed a person who had been a fashion model went on to write a memoir about growing up as the daughter of a well-known soul singer and her publisher. Harpercollins saw the pictures after the magazine was published. Contacted me and asked me what charge for all the portraits. That was another foray and then the third was being asked to photograph the very first pen. World Voices Festival of International Literature which very quickly introduced me to a number of writers from around the world and sixteen years later. I'm still at festivals photographer meeting a good fifty plus photographer. Sorry writers from around the world with each and every festival that comes in it's joyous joyous experience for me and that that has fed that experience has just with each year Expand the world of the community with which with whom. I work in literature a to the idea of what makes it great and author portrait portrait. It is a very very slippery thing because there's no single image to my thinking history that's ever spoken to the entirety of a person if that's the goal of a portrait if a portrait has to say this is who. I am good luck features. We're we're everything each and every one of us has been ugly.

These days he has worked in more than fifty countries lectured at New York University and Yale among other places and if you go to his website you will see portrait of people like Oprah Winfrey Twenty Morrison Patti Smith Margaret Atwood Patrick Stewart in Kellyn Paul Simon and dozens and dozens of others. It is a body of work of which I am personally Quite envious good morning. Bill could he's got great to hear Your Voice. I do have a quick thought for you. I've not traveled to fifty countries the photograph I photographed in better than ten by way of commissions however I have photographed people from at least fifty countries and hopefully been able to travel to their worlds in cultures through those experiences. Okay I saw that on your resume and I was impressed and I'm still impressed. So tell me how things are in New York this morning. New York is a beautiful place this morning. The air is cool and crisp outside. I did have a short walk this morning. I am very fortunate that out my window. I have a cemetery so I get to see less trees and I have a great deal of quiet. What sounds I hear. Every morning in this new time of ours is usually One of two things that I hear all either your birdsong or I will hear the sound of a passing ambulance and of course happy to hear the former not to hear the ladder. That is the time in which we live summer mornings in New York. City yes Tell me about portrait photography but let let let's begin where people how in the world could you get into photography? How did you get into the kind of portraiture that you do specifically I into photography being a shy boy and wanting to make friends and prior to the thought of making friends? I wanted to be reacquainted with my father. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. My father was out in my life for a few years and when he came back the beginning of my high school years he had a Konica thirty five millimeter camera. A Long Lens to go with it and when I arrived at high school which was a high school outside of my neighborhood I went to magnet high school for foreign languages. I was busted very early in the morning to get there. I was in the ethic minority in head a world of new friends to make and when I got to school my classmates were speaking about two things with which I was unfamiliar of the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and girls and I knew very little about both but I had been working in the summers and not really spend that money on anything beyond books and comic book so I had enough money saved to become the youngest person in the history of the Miami Dolphins the buy season tickets to the Miami Dolphins. That's impressive I go So what I had done was than I began to use my father's camera and I would take a tripod that camera that long lens invite a new acquaintance from high school to eat game. And I believe my mother had driven been to us down To attend these games and no one ever stopped me. The guards were very kind. They recognize me after a few games. I always went through the same gate that sort of thing and was able to watch Dan Marino or the ball around and make pictures and then make Prince of those pictures and share them with classmates over time developing friendships and of course Getting to know my father again. That's a wonderful beginning there. Is I know an extraordinary event. Though in your early connection to reading and that's possible yes but but I'll let you lead that so when you're asking the extraordinary connection is well. Yeah you you are probably the only you are the only person I know who's ever been bitten by an alligator. Oh this is true this this. I don't know all the people in your life of course who you know but but I'm the only person I know who's been bitten by an alligator and that happened to me in the summer of nineteen seventy six in June of that year. I was of course on summer break from school quite small and my brother and I were playing in the backyard of the home of a friend of my mother in southwest Fort Lauderdale where there are canals and those canals in some cases feed than Their Way West to the Florida everglades and of course. That's where alligators hang out. And some of them sometimes get lost. My brother-in-law had been wrestling. This lady's backyard was time to come into the House for lunch. I had asked the Lady of the House. If we could use your host wash our feet persons they were full of dirt from the grass and the young lady had said no actually better just a spicer feed off the dock and then it'll be quicker and I went I. I remember sitting at the dock. Enjoying splash on my feet and looking at my brother and my brother's twenty months younger than me made his eyes get bigger and he looks down on my foot. I looked at my foot and I saw the alligator close. Its mouth around my right foot and I went to some degree of shock. The allegation let go. He caught the outside artery of my ankle and bloodshot out. Allah a bad money iphone sketch. And my my brother then began to grab my body to try to pull my body up and my mother and my mother's friend of course had come out of the house at this time and they were lifting me from the document onto the grass. The allegation had gone back under the dock. And I don't know how much more time passed or how much blood I lost but I then at some point found in the emergency room of a hospital where my brother was born. Only a few blocks away and doctors worked in saved my foot. Save my leg. There was concern for infection loss and I was very lucky to have for the balance of the summer. Have Gone to the hospital every day to get my foot. Epsom salts to save it and that meant of course not being able to play games at not being able to enjoy summer camp not being able to do sports do much of anything involved mobility and that deepened my reading and then with it of course my drawing and my reading and drawing through my childhood in and beyond began with comic books and then onto more challenging books More INTERESTING BOOKS. Maybe more interesting stuff. The right word say because books are wonderful. And they're very very interesting. Otherwise we wouldn't have these films adaptations of stories that now the masses is seen film but the the books of course comic books would come out once a month and it was great to go to seven eleven after school and pick up those books but I would devour them so quickly and then I really wasn't in the mood to wait another month for the next book to come out so I would just draw stories myself. The drawing worked its way over time of course into photography. But that's a longer compensation which I'm happy to have

Entrepreneurs of intolerance compound COVID-19 racist backlash
"I'm Matt Wells and for this special edition of our lives on podcast from you a news. My colleague from our Chinese service see when Sheehan temporarily based back home while Cova nineteen disrupts every aspect of our lives has been talking to these special reporter about how hidden. Prejudices have been exploited by nationalist politicians and others she describes as entrepreneurs of intolerance to create a frightening new social and political dimension to this pandemic suen spoke to Yale educated Professor Tschumi who was appointed by the Human Rights Council to her key job in November. Two thousand seventeen. In mid April as they su-nam even had rippled from Wuhan to Europe then striking the US with New York City home to UN headquarters the epicenter of the world's worst pandemic in a century Sutton nationalities ethnicities have become targets of racism and xenophobia tax. Maybe my question would be. Why did this happen precisely at the time when we should unite? You're right to say that it's counter intuitive that at a time when there is so much risk and uncertainty that they were also algorithm of certain groups and what seems like increases in intolerant and vegetate. But I think it has to do with the fact that in emergency situations like these underlying problems that exist I just exacerbated. Many of these groups are groups that already subject to latent intolerance and xenophobia and prejudice take the example of Asian Americans will people who are perceived to be of Asian descent in the US. Right now have been subject to xenophobic racist attacks in the wake of cove. Nineteen you can think about say Africans who are being subject to various measures in China right now also in response to the covert nineteen pandemic you can think about Roma who have been targeted in different European countries from being accused of spreading the virus and being subject to extreme measures. Benny members of those groups can tell you the long history of Racial Discrimination Xenophobia even prior to there being a pandemic groups that in general of vulnerable to racism xenophobia. So I would say we should understand these attacks. As naming Bay in many places prejudices and biases that are often latent and in this pan-demic they become even more pronounced and that combined with the fact that you actually have actors as you might think of as entrepreneurs of intolerance certain actors whether the politicians whether they media outlets actually took prophet and to exacerbate into enflame intolerance jumping into the fray and ham referring to political leaders who've been willing to come out the knicks statements that are explicitly implicitly phobic in my statement that you reference. I speak to this example here in the west of the president who keeps Lee referred to the virus as China virus. And you see this happening in different parts of the world as well this kind of statement at high levels of political office if you ask me. Signals in acceptability of stigmatization of specific regions of specific groups of people who come from those regions presumably these narratives actions are very harmful absolutely individuals. On the group's fourth subject racism and xenophobia because they all particularly mysterious. Akina race of the national origin. And sometimes it's because they presumed to be the of examples of Vietnamese people who being attacked and they are attacked sharing to them as Chinese. We're seeing examples in the US of bubble attacks of bushel stigmatization. So when you're walking down the street and let's say you are perceived to be of Asian descent people yes the social distancing but this also goes Glasgow and the kind of wide that speaks to something racial is taking place. There's been examples of spitting and then there's also just physical violence people who are being beaten up because they are presumed to be of Ns necessity or racial designation that is associated with having spread disease which we know this is not Hollywood. It's not salutes are more prone to the virus but this is what's happening in Europe. You have examples of people being denied access to goods and services and some of the examples that I've been looking at which published in the European Union's on the Mental Rights Agency. They just had a report out on cove. Nineteen and there's a section in the other talks about discrimination that talks about people of Asian descent to perceive to be of Asian descent. Being refused the right to rent an apartment people being refused access to healthcare. These are just examples. I'm not saying this is everywhere. Near these examples to highlight in the report they will talk about people at agent descend being denied access to best rants access to schools. This is before. Some of the measures were implemented and then in China Africans fleeing victims from their residents in long show people having multiple seized denial of access to restaurants so those are examples of the kinds of Homs that individuals in groups are experiencing also want to highlight the mental and emotional costs and the IAEA that these groups have to carry as a result of these attacks.

It's a strange trade market for starting pitchers in MLB
"Say a strange. <hes> trade market for starting pitchers which is really for this summer is at the center of the trade market. I was looking at you know sort of broad strokes. There are a couple of potential free agents who are available in Trade Zach Wheeler the mets but he's coming off the injured list to start on Friday. Jason Vargas of the mets Madison Bumgarner is a tweet it out yesterday. These like the image on on Mardi Mais flies family picture in back to the future. He's disappeared slowly. We right from the trade market. I'm I know that the giants loss yesterday but I think in less the giants are swept by San Diego over the weekend I think Bumgarner staves with the giants and they keep him for the rest of the urine they ride out how while they're playing now. Because Far Han Zaidi I either had a baseball OPS first year there. It'd be so difficult for him to continue to try to do business in that town in that organization if he pulled up the roots of this great run that they've been on without <hes> you know giving him a chance has to play it out and so bumgarner disappearing but they're a bunch of starting pitchers being talked about who are under teen control beyond this your Trevor Bauer Stroman Noah Syndergaard Robbie Ray the diamondbacks Mike Minor. Enter the Rangers Matthew Voided the Tigers and there are fewer buyers in there are those type of pitchers. The Astros are going to get a starting pitcher Yankees Braves phillies Oakland twins. Perhaps maybe the brewers although I wonder her if if they would necessarily be a big buyer so it's it's a really kind of a strange pitching market because you would assume that moves you're going to be made but it really comes down to okay which of the sellers blue jays the Indians maybe blink a little bit and come off. They're really high demands to try to bridge the gap with some of the buyers what you read on where some of these guys might land yeah. That's I think your take on the teams. Every eighteen you listed seems likely to at least want to acquire a starter. They want necessarily all do so obviously but I think every one of the has an actual knee and his position in a position in the standings word probably makes sense to do so. I wanted to just jump back to Bumgarner for one second. I agree with you. I date that the public reaction to them trading bumgarner would be very poor right now. The starting seem is not actually that good though they've been outscored they unless they look been outscored on the season. It's really unlikely that they're gonNA make the playoffs Joe Sheehan wrote about this in his newsletter his email newsletter yesterday to talk about how various sites fan graphs in baseball perspectives of the giants playoff playoff odds is extremely low.
The NFL's best and worst offensive arsenals: Barnwell's 32-1 ranking
"Barnwell writes these very lengthy pieces on E._S._p._N.. Dot Com and he wrote a piece that that came out early this morning ranking the N._F._L.'s. Goals offensive arsenals thirty two worst all the way to number one <hes> and basically you know he's considering how the players that the teams have will perform in twenty nineteen. He's not necessarily really just basing it off of recent <hes> recent performance. He's he's he's guessing on what you know. It will be in two thousand nineteen any says also that the as as a preface it with a lengthy the preview before he started ranking them of course in love with is that the arsenals are weighted <hes> the arsenal rankings are weighted more towards receivers than tight ends or running backs <hes> any says also the top elite level talent wins out over depth anyway the rankings start with the thirty second ranked offense of Arsenal Jacksonville Bennett's Denver Miami Seattle and then the Redskins so the redskins have the fifth worst offensive offensive arsenal in the N._F._l.. According to a bill barnwell any rights the investments Washington is made it wide receiver haven't worked out former former seahawks wide out Paul Richardson signed to a five year forty million dollar deal wasn't healthy and Seattle and cautious watches twenty passes in seven games last season former first rounder. Josh DACHSHUND hasn't developed in Washington. Just decline the fifth year option on Dachshund Jamison crowder left the jets <hes> mister relevant Trey Quinn will be as replacement Jay Gruden gruden drafted Terry maclaurin in the third round but there but is there any reason to think Washington is going to start developing whiteouts effectively. This is likely the league's worst group of starting wide receivers while that's the kind those kind the tools you wanNA put around a rookie quarterback and you know the funny thing is according to warn sharp. This is the most expensive offense in the N._F._l.. This mostly costly offense. Well take the field the N._F._l.. Because of the Investment Alex Smith and you know that is not going to write to pay off <hes> yes so I mean again another reason why you you WanNa put this on this limited offense in the hands hands of a quarterback who understands limitations in that case keenum. It's Cole McCoy too but I'm going to operate on the assumption that cultures isn't going to stay healthy so <hes> that's case keenum you don't want to <hes> experiment and test out a rookie <hes> with these with these kind of weapons <hes> especially if you're Jay Gruden and you know you have the expectation or the hope and we're assuming he does is of of having team good enough for him to remain as head coach. You know what's interesting. I was thinking about this as I was reading this early this morning. <hes> that the redskins according to Barnwell look I mean I don't know if it's the worst it's certainly among the five for six worst greg in a starting wide receiver groups and the N._F._l.. And we we know that you know in terms of offensive weapons they don't have much. I mean you have to pray. The Jordan Reed comes back plays thirteen games in his Jordan Jordan Reed again. You got to hope that Chris Thompson is a weapon out of the backfield. The dairy skies pays off as a second round pick and turns into a a guy that with Adrian Peterson is a big time back that that that <hes> Vernon Davis continues to be effective in it somebody somebody whether it's Richardson Dachshund or Harmon or maclaurin. Somebody steps up you.

You know, getting back to where we almost where we started the kids already been given preferential treatment, because he's wearing jersey had previously been a threat. You know, held back number seven Joe is minsters -i and the team had an opportunity to basically say to kid. No, no, we don't give that number out pick another number on the. And then what they chose to do is let the kid wind up, you know, lobby for it left it in Joe's hands, put Joe thighs man in a position where he would have looked like would've looked terrible. If he had said, no, you can't wear it and basically had no choice. So he's already he's already walking into that locker room with. With a revered hallowed jersey that nobody else on the team has the ability to do. That's right. That is true. They should have. Never put it in Joe's hands as far as the decision goes.

"Bob carpenter will be a guest on the show today. A little bit later on. We'll get to the nets and Patrick corbin's. Recent struggles with Bob when he joins us. I don't know in a half hour. Forty five minutes, something like that. Jay Gruden spoke yesterday a work through some of that. And give you the Kevin Sheehan show Redskins quarterbacks starting the opener odds that was a long description. I think we can shorten it up. But the starting quarterback odds for the Redskins, courtesy of the Kevin Sheehan show. It'll be a mix of. Errands odds. And my odds averaged out to a show. Odds on the three quarterbacks right now twain Haskins case keenum and Colt McCoy, we'll give you the odds a little bit later on on who starts opening day, and you know what we can update those throughout the summer periodically right through training camp until Jay Gruden or Dan Snyder, I would guess, names, a starter, whoever that person is that's going to be responsible for the starting quarterback a decision. The raiders got hard knocks Aaron not surprise because John crime, who was on with us last week, basically, you know implied that he had information that indicated that it would be the raiders. I just think it's a more interesting story for NFL fans period. It absolutely makes sense. I just thought that the Laura Vegas would be too strong to overcome, but you know what? It's absolutely between Gruden and between Mayock there with all the cuts and stuff. I, I think that factors in and then all the players have Tonio Brown, you have Richie incognito. You have all those crazy people. It makes all the sense in the world. Of course, it means that the Redskins bright won't go get it for a while. They're in the business of ratings and the raiders are much more attractive to an NFL audience right now than the Redskins are it's not even close. So I, I did I did think that you were onto something potentially with the Vegas thing. But the problem with that is, you know, if you're HBO, it's burden hand, you know, you know, that they're interesting. This year, you can't be guaranteed that they'll be interesting next year. So the Redskins not going to be the hard knocks team. The raiders will be and it will be a good watch. I think it would have been fascinating for all of us to have seen the Redskins behind the scenes out Nash burn, but I don't. It was as interesting to most NFL fans to the NBA finals. I wanted to play a sound bite from the show. The jump the Rachel Nichols show on ESPN. She had Brian Windhorst, who is an NBA reporter for yes. Bien and Tracy McGrady on the show yesterday with her listen to Brian Windhorst talk about the Kevin Durant injury. Obviously were invested in these games. But I'm not a fan of either of these teams. I'm a fan of the NBA I felt sick, Leslie. I mean, I really had difficulty getting over that. And I have only the most little tangential relationship towards that team that player. I don't even know. I don't even know how they're going to go forward from here. And I and I, I saw some some people were second guessing whether Bob Myers is putting on a little act. I know that was that was. Yeah, I felt sick command if you're Bob Myers, magin, if your teammates it was, it was a terrible moment. I, I don't know whether it's worth trying to find blame. I just think we have to look at as a terrible moment that was Brian Windhorst tracing. Mcgrady interjecting there. He's not the only person who has spoken about the Durant injury in that way. And we talked about it a little bit yesterday. But since the game ended on Monday night, the reaction his injury has really traumatized people in a way that is very surprising to me. I, I must be missing something here. I'm watching the game on. Monday night and I'm into the game. And yes, it was unfortunate for Durant, and the warriors that he got hurt and for basketball fans and I'm a major basketball fan it sucks that he got hurt. I would have much preferred a series with a healthy Durant..

"Think the AFC west at least going in on papers the best division in football. That would be my guess, the the NFC south saints falcons Panthers bucks. No AFC west best division with two teams that finish six ten and four and twelve that have chance to make significant improvements from year ago, who are you going to root for in the AFC west rivers or flacco? Good question. I haven't even thought of it that way because I am a big rivers fan. And man, you know, what they got absolutely housed in that playoff game. Remember how everybody was on the chargers in that game. I didn't play it because it looked like a total smell test play the other way the patriots. But I wanted to root for the chargers. I don't know. I I just think flacco is a clutch performer in big games. I don't consider him to be an elite quarterback. I don't have never said that. I don't consider him to be a top ten quarterback. I don't. But I think when he's had the same offense coordinator, and he's had weapons authencity. He's been pretty good. And he's been really good in games. That matter Layton, regular seasons, and in the postseason, and I think you saw a lot of what Baltimore thought of them in the way they handled the exit. You know, it was very classy on both ends. But yeah, I I don't know maybe root for both of them to to get to the AFC championship game against each other. All right. That's it for today.

I like the crazy part about a knowing country houses, the winner is that you really could have made an argument that a number of these courses were impeded to appoint the any one of them could have one and one of them was mine. So I will sit here say tilt until I would've been right in the end is fish, not apposite. But turn let's let's talk about it. 'cause you're you're watching the race in. And I am as well. And I I'm not a horse racing guy. So I did not pick up on what happened as the race was being run. Did you did you notice it when it happened? Well, I was there, and I was in the grandstanded this area called the media viewing area, which is off, you know, under the twin spires, and you know in real time. No. And I heard the owner say this on the today show of maximum security. Gary west you read on it. He basically lamented. This is what happens when it sour grapes lamented the size of the field, which is unusual. Right. And that's why I think no one really noticed it real times. The size of the field is so unwieldy and unusual. Most other races are half that size. There might be fourteen in the Preakness only because of the circumstances typically it's less than that. So it isn't unwieldy size. And so there's an expectation that there are things that are going to happen that are a little unusual but not necessarily illegal, right? And so that's why I think real time. I didn't notice it though, when they showed the replays of it was clear that that a violation occurred. The larger question was what were they going to do about it? Because of what was it stake? I've liken this to the NFC. Championship game that cornerback barreled into that receiver that should have been a flag. But what was it stake at that moment that referee to think about what am I gonna do about it? And I think the Stewart here at the same problem. Like, what are we going to do? Nobody went down. There was no catastrophe. So what are we gonna do about it? Or we gonna go letter of the law. We're gonna let this go. Well, let me ask you about that. If this is, you know, the fifth at laurel on a Thursday. Is it obvious that this is a foul and that horse gets while the fide? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. A million times like that horse veered five lanes away from where it was of course, they would disqualify. Nobody would question it, and it would never come up. It's only because of the stakes here. And in the end the hard part about it is. And this is the part that people don't seem to wanna really grass is. I'm not so sure that country house should be named the winner. He's only named the winner. Because he crossed the line second. You don't really know. What happened with war will which is the one? That was really agreed the one that was bumped or long rates Taty was making a move at the hit the brakes because other that it was going to be a massive crash between the horses. So there are a number of horses that had no chance of winning country house actually really interesting about it is he's the one that put the objection up because he felt that he was impeded.
"sheehan" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Was you need to find out if Dan Bruce right about Haskins because if they're not right next year's quarterback class is considered a uniquely st-. Strong quarterback class that brought a few responses from poppy on Twitter LOL. Wow. Kevin Sheehan C at Kevin Sheehan DC. He's already talking about how to get cat. How to get Haskins out aveer just throw them out there. So you can move on and draft the quarterback next year. Truly amazing. Actually, that's not at all what I was doing. And I emphasize that a the only way you're going to learn if he can do this is to put him out there, you know, the meetings and the scout team it's not going to be revealing at all he's got a play. You've got to put them out there to learn, you know, whether or not he's the guy, you know, you're going to be able to learn some stuff potentially, you know, but you really need to see him play. But I also conceded simultaneously that these not ready. You can't put him out there because you won't learn much that way either. Right. So I understand both arguments might conclusion was this if he is anywhere near. Near ready and the competition with keenum in McCoy is close than they should play them. First of all if it's close competitively with the other quarterbacks. Why would you wait? You know, it doesn't happen that much with I ran quarterbacks anymore if they're remotely ready if you drafted him because you loved him, and he beats out the competition or he's close to beating out the competition. You get them out there. Because you gotta find out if you got it, right? Twenty nine percent of first round quarterbacks over the last fifteen years of become legitimate multi year starting NFL quarterbacks. So the odds are stacked against him at all the others to begin with. So you've gotta find out quickly. If you hit on one of the three out of ten that make it and yes because next year's quarterback draft appears to be very good. And because if you're being realistic, especially if you start a rookie quarterback. It's very possible that you're going to end up with a top ten pick you should want. You should wanna find this out sooner rather than later not at the expense of rushing him out there too early. If he really isn't ready, and he's more of a long term project. I get that. And I'm for that. If that's what they decide if he needs a year or two behind veteran until you turn them loose fine. But if he is more advanced if he is close to keenum in Colt during training camp and even before then get him out there. I think it makes sense. So I did this poll this morning, which has gotten I I was curious off that conversation yesterday about Bruce Allen, which was not a conversation that dealt with advocating for a contract extension for Bruce Allin at all it was actually the opposite. But I did this poll this morning because I was curious to find out actually somebody. Jested that I do this. And I thought it was a good idea. I did a poll this morning just to find out. You know, what people thought of Bruce Allin after this draft. And it was a simple question. Have you changed your mind about Bruce Allin now, by the way, you know, for the one person or two people that asked me change my mind, how well then you shouldn't be answering it all right? If you need me to describe what I meant, you know, I really think your plate your answer than is coming from a place of not close to following the Redskins. If you're following the Redskins. I think you know, what I meant when I said, you changed your mind about Bruce Allin. Have you changed your mind about Bruce Allin was you know, I think self explanatory. And I think it was for ninety nine percent of you. But anyway, I digress. So Bruce, Allen's been doing a ton of national media bathing. In the accolades of of a highly rated draft taking victory laps of sorts, by the way, skins social media is. Celebrating a lot of this as well. They had a tweet yesterday. That said in case you forgot how are draft went. And then they link you to all of these all of these grades on the draft..

"I mean, already they're four and a half out if they lose today and. When they go. Let's say four and six on a road trip including a losing two of three to Philly. They're probably seven or eight out. Well, long season. It's a learning to you're gonna go ahead and play the other one hundred forty something. Anyway. They're absolutely going to. But I don't know. I think there's a lot of starting to be built up anger towards Dave Martinez. Whether you know because even before the injuries, he it's not like they were. Going through people. Then all of a sudden they hit injuries and started skidding. They've been getting moment one here. Yes. So if you if you want to make me make a bold prediction by Memorial Day. Dave Martinez out. There you go. You heard it here. First from. Aaron Oester, the producer editor social media manager for the Kevin Sheehan show podcast and soon to be the producer for NBC sports radio show with Tim Murray and Michael Jenkins. All right lot to get to van pelt will be a guest a little bit later on. But a lot of lot of things to get to first of all from Bryce on Twitter Gruden into Rico. They were two man booth. Right. Yeah. They were we missed that one yet, obviously because the money night booth now is going to be booger McFarland and Joe Tessa Tor two man booth with Lisa Saulters on the sideline and we were trying to come up with recent to man booths. And we just completely forgot about Gruden and Tariq, oh, which I felt was very good booth. Next thing I wanted to get to a was the Redskins are not picking up the option fifth year option on Josh Doksan. That is not a surprise. It does not mean that Josh Doksan won't be a signifty. Part of what they do this year and Josh Doxa. Now knowing that he doesn't have a contract for twenty twenty is going to be playing for one. You know, the the the question about Josh is never been talent. It's always been does he have enough interest in fire in the belly? I mean, that's really netting it out. And you know, that's one of those things I was dead wrong about Josh Doksan. I loved him at TCU. He was a phenomenal performer. He had every single thing you'd look for in a college receiver Gina translating to the NFL. But the things that we never know about right? And in the all the due diligence the personal stuff, the psychological stuff that does he love football stuff. And I think it's been clear over his first three seasons that it's been a struggle to you know, to clearly say that this is something that is, you know, the end all be all for him. There's just been something new. Missing from it. You know, early on it was a claim from some that it was home-sickness. And you know, I know that at TCU he was very introverted, and very shy and had gone away from school at a high school for one year and then transferred back to Texas to be close to home. But you know, he is he's a professional earning a lot of money at the professional level. If he wants this to be a career in long term career, where he makes you know, a lot more money than he's made off of a rookie deal. He's going to have to prove something this year doesn't mean that somebody if he has another, you know, subpar year that somebody won't roll the dice that they can figure them out next year. But it's not going to to acquaint to a big contract. I still think despite what the Redskins drafted in the optimism over MacLaurin and and Harmon, you know, the dachshund is still going to get a really good shot, you know, along with Richardson and Trey Quinn, and it cetera. But. He's gotta come with a lot more probably early on to turn this into. What could be you know, who knows maybe the breakout year be perfect timing for him. Especially now the Redskins haven't picked up that fifth year option, but not a surprise. Couple of tweets that will lead me into a conversation from Allen on Twitter. Alan tweeted me yesterday, so conflict and dysfunction as a Redskins narrative cells on podcasts radio.

You're burying the leader, buddy. I'm not a big self promoter. I I want you to promote me, I'm telling you. Kevin Sheehan the clairvoyant Kevin Sheehan who nail down. What I mean? Twenty five percent of the of of the Redskins scaffolding twenty five percent mess predict. He actually the twenty five percent of the schedule. And which is a hundred percent increase over your best. Prediction, actually, just just to give you some credit for whatever reason talking about clairvoyant, you said when I did the mock schedule a week and a half ago, or whenever it was this year, you're going to get a lot right? It's going to be a record year for you. I'm like, why do you think that well matter of great instincts artist part of the reason was I don't know how or why? But you seem to be smarter than. So so I figured that. Maybe get you'd have a little bit more insight. So not not to belabor this all real quickly. I got four right. Yes. Not exactly for right. I got three. Right. Exactly. But the Minnesota game I did get in week eight. And I also said it would be featured game. But I had it as a late Sunday FOX doubleheader game. Instead, they put it on Thursday night. Let's let's not quibble racers before. I don't think we should quibble about that. So I had that one right? I had at buffalo in week nine right? That's so Petar that you had that one right? Had Philadelphia at home in weeks in week fifteen right? And I correctly predicted that they would close at Dallas in week seventeen. One is is the woven. It's back to back games that he got right back. Yeah. I think the San Francisco game was really close in there too. But I last year the wo- moment was when I predicted that they would play Tennessee in the next to last week of the season on a Saturday. And I got that one. Right. But that was the only one I got right? Yeah. And typically, yes, it's a I think the most right ever was too. So you've doubled while you're that in one year. Thanks to your encouragement. I also I I was very close on a lot of other things. I said that they would open up on the road and I had at giants..

Marriage was very complicated and ended in divorce, and I was a single mom along the way. I taught theology in Catholic high school and that kind of put me in a circle where I did more retreat work and. I am fortunate in that Joe and I had access to father, Richard roar as a mentor and a teacher, and he taught me the any him and I've been teaching for twenty five years. Yeah, the basics.
