"You watch Stephanie rules interview that's in quotes because it wasn't live, I believe it was edited. I'm not sure. Did you watch that yet? I saw clips of it. And there's some sentences. I just didn't follow. I think he's impaired. And I believe Stephanie was doing, you know how it's easy to give fall into a softball interview when you feel sorry for someone. You give them the answer and the question. Can I play this for Brett, please? Sure. Brett Barrett cut number 16. How to serve all Pennsylvania voters. It's a very big state, right? Think about western PA in Pittsburgh where the economy was thriving before COVID, filled with tech companies and universities. There's probably all sorts of people. There are thrilled about student debt forgiveness, but go 30 minutes outside to beaver county, where there's likely voters who are saying, I just want a good kindergarten. I want a good 5th grade. How do you serve both voters? We've got a complicated economy. People want very different things. I just think people need to understand and be able to recognize what their lives are really like. And we believe and we know that we actually do that very important too.

Your Taxes Will Be Funding Classroom Culture Wars

"Let me explain it to you this way Massive amounts of money were spent by the federal government to subsidize the unions and their members And you from here forth will be paying for that With your taxes We'll be paying for that with your taxes Some spending choices have fallen squirrelly at the intersection of COVID-19 And classroom culture wars Schools in California spent 1.5 billion on teacher training that included implicit bias training New York pledged to center its COVID-19 relief spending decisions on diversity equity and inclusion Significant portion of the federal funding was earmarked for online teaching Which of course the point was to get away from this Washington D.C. public schools received 87 million in the second round of relief funding But D.C. public schools did not reopen for full-time In person learning for the rest of that academic year In fact the district did not end its hybrid remote learning model until the fall of 2021 Despite having taken in by that point more than $300 million an extra federal funding Then there's luxury projects And whitewater Wisconsin one school district used 2 million in federal stimulus funding it received to cover the normal operating expenses and its budget This trick officials then used the money that had been freed up to build synthetic turf football baseball and softball fields at the schools

Julie Hartman: It's Such an Honor to Work With Dennis Prager

"Right, let me throw you no curveballs. I'm going to throw nothing but underhanded softballs because I'm loving the Dennis and Julie podcast. You must be having a great time. I saw Dennis. He and I appeared in South Carolina the other day and in the green room we were talking about the podcast. Dennis has described you, of course, is the real deal. He says, despite her young age, Julie Hartman has become one of the most important people in my life, every generation seems to produce a tiny handful of brilliant and morally clear people who are also courageous fighters. She's one of them, I thank God I found her. That really has to make you feel great. Such high praise from a guy like Dennis prager. You have no idea. It is such an honor to work with him. You know, Mike, just two years ago, actually two years ago right around now during the height of the Black Lives Matter riots in the summer of 2020 is when I discovered Dennis, and I remember sitting just downstairs in my house on the couch reading his book still the best hope and then his Torah commentaries and listening to the radio show and thinking, my God, if I could ever have a conversation with the sky fast forward now I have a podcast with him and he's one of the most important people in my life. So I just pinch myself sometimes. And we're all lucky.

Kyle Mann and Joel Berry on New Book 'The Post-Modern Pilgrim's Progress'

"I warned you. That there were people crazier than me in this world. You didn't believe me. And I said, you know what? That's on you because I'm going to find them. I'm going to bring them on the show as my guests. I'm going to force you to see that there are people even crazier than I. One of them is Kyle Mann, claims to be the editor in chief of the Babylon bee, who believes that. A lot of people claim a lot of things. Managing editor of the Babylon B is Joel berry. Anyway, that's what they claim. Let's see what they have to say. Joel and Kyle, welcome to the program. Thanks for having us. Thanks for having us. You guys claim also to have written a book called the postmodern pilgrims regress. You want me to just take your word for it? Is there any proof? Can you offer my audience any proof of these things? No, that's all fake news. Yeah, it's entirely fake. Another elaborate satire. Yeah. We didn't expect these kind of hard hitting questions from you, Eric. I'm a hard hitting journalist. Okay. This is not fun and games. I don't throw softballs, okay? I want answers. So you guys claim to have written a book called the postmodern pilgrims progress. Let's say you had written a book, let's say such a book exists. Let's say the book is brand new and available in paperback. What is the book about? And I think most people listening to the program are familiar with the Babylon B I would think, but feel free to talk about that if you want. Absolutely. So yeah, we wrote a book that we claimed to have written a book that's a modern take on the on the pilgrim's progress that bunyan wrote. And this is an idea that was bouncing around in my head for quite a while that if we were to take bunions approach to allegory where you have Christian meeting all these people who are like very clearly one to one representations of people that we encounter in the Christian life. And we were to have them encounter people that maybe we encounter more commonly today. Everybody that we talk about that we mock in the Babylon bee kind of represented in this allegorical

Supreme Court Justices Face Threat Over Leaked Draft

"I want to argue that with you because if they've got 5 firm votes and they know that they're going to overrule roe and Casey and they've just got to let the descents put their descent together and maybe the chief does a concurrence like he did in citizens united while joining the majority. There are lots of things that could happen. But if there are 5 votes to say we're going to overturn roe and Casey, the present danger to justices of fanatics is real. And I drove past Sunday last. The softball baseball field where the Bernie Sanders supporter stalked prepared and tried to kill half the Congress. And we have a number of fanatics in this country. And if you incentivize them to do something, like harm a justice, I just, I'm not comfortable with that. Remove the incentive. They can't change the decision once. How does releasing the vote remove the incentive? Because it's not a judgment until it issues from the court as a judgment. And so if a judge were to try his or her car off of a cliff tomorrow, by accident, the majority vanishes. They have it issued a judgment. So it can change into the last day. But that doesn't. I mean, if the vote total becomes known and it is to overturn roe and Casey, I don't think that changes. I mean, you're knowledge of the procedures of the Supreme Court exceeds that of most Americans. I think that if I had lunch yesterday with a I had lunch yesterday Republicans voted to take away a woman's right to choose.

"Our stars across the SEC. We're just getting started here in Gainesville, Florida. We are here all week long. We have so many snacks in the back to keep us fueled and ready you knew we were getting there first, but first we gotta get you to a and M South Carolina coming up from Florida here in just a few minutes. These two teams did not face off in the regular season in a and M still winless in SEC tournament games, sorry, Tori. We'll see if they can change that tonight. Paul back over to you. And thank you very much. And we'll be going back to Gainesville in about 20 minutes. First, let's go to handsome after all those women to go to handsome Joe next. Hello, hello, Joe, good afternoon. Rob Paul, my mom. Hey, that's all in natural. I mean, that's what you are you doing better today. I always worry, I went home last night worried about you. I am, I am, Paul. I had some wealth of somebody I didn't know we had a bad accident this morning and the elementary student takers had a regular four year old daughter and our daughter in the fourth grade didn't make it. And also, and that's read by elementary school. So that's a bad thing for the town, but yeah, I'm doing a lot better today, but I want to talk about actually fortunate NAO today. Now, I just want to add to that. As far as these skills getting weaker, they have already been wakeful. I mean, Alabama, Georgia, House state. We can't get these goods are still going to get ballplayer. I mean, because they're just so many athletes out there. And they really go on change. Maybe they need to make some different leagues, a lot of division two, maybe expand those or something, but the rich is basically just staying rich anyhow. So it's not really affecting anybody. And this guidance said that somebody might not want any Paul. It's like in high school, your quarterback hit data could all have the town and be the richest man in town, but every ball player on that team going to block hit and do it. Because they're athletes. That's what they do. I mean, everybody makes the same amount of money. So it makes more of it. That just part of life. It ain't really going to think. I think it's good for the players to finally legally get them some endorsement monies. I mean, because. They put in their life out there, you know, they risk some serious injuries. A lot of plays and this is from maybe not high school, but every college out there, Paul. I mean, they deserve the right to do that. Whether it's your and a up here in Florence, Alabama, the. Restaurant won't respond to them. There's nothing wrong with that. But then that got to take away from these other schools. Yeah, we might get a better player from another student, but we've been doing this through history anyhow. I mean, so it's really not. Joe, hey, let me say this, I'm really glad to hear you're doing better. I just looked at the time. And we are officially out of time for this program. We appreciate all of you for being a part of it. Some really interesting guests today will see you right here tomorrow.

"Florida. Welcome into the set. We're gonna be tied here all week long. I'm Alyssa Lang, Tori Vidal is Caleb bro, Madison shipment. You guys ready for a big week? I'm so ready. Oh my gosh. Waiting all year. We really have. We've been counting down from when we were in Tuscaloosa. This time last year crowning a champion the Florida gainers hoping to make it two host schools in a row hoisting that SEC tournament championship Tori. Let's start with you on the desk. Welcome to the squad. Let's turn it for you. Oh, well usually it consists of me sitting at home watching you guys on TV and now I feel so honored to be here up at the table talk and some good softball. How exciting is this time of year, Kayla. It's the best time of year. And these teams, they're gonna lay it all out on the line. It's winner go home and it just gets you so prepped and ready to go for postseason for the NCAA tournament and this is a big stage and I can tell you right now you're not gonna find a conference tournament better than this one Madison. I don't know about you guys, but this was always my favorite time of the year because we were done with finals and we got to feel like professional softball players for the postseason. Everybody spending all this time together competing out there on the field for a championship doesn't get better than that. Maddie said, I was ready when I had stopped doing homework. Basically did what I said. So it's surprised at all. We're very excited to be here in the postseason, but guys, this has been an insane, crazy, all over the place regular season, the bracket wasn't actually set until just a few days ago, the final day of regular season play. Maddie, how would you describe what we saw during the regular season? Absolute chaos. I can't remember a last time where it actually came down to the very last pitch thrown in the regular season to figure out where everybody was going to shake out. In the past, it was always kind of, if you had an idea who was going to be at the top, who was going to be at the bottom. But truly, two through 9 spots this year in the SEC came down to the last pitch thrown on Sunday. And I think that credits the offense is in this league because, you know, the pitching is good, but the hitters are what set this league apart and just one through 13 in this league, everybody can play. Everybody can swing it. And you just never know who's going to win on any given day. And then 9 times out of ten, it's because of the performances in the batter's block Tory. Yeah, and on top of that, we're seeing a lot of match ups that are just fresh off of the last series of conference. You see LSU Mississippi state. They just came off a series, Georgia olmes, so it's going to be interesting to see in the fourth game of their series how it's going to end up. One team we had absolutely no doubt about coming into this tournament was Arkansas outright SEC champions of the regular season. They came into Sunday knowing they were that number one seed, but we wanted to talk about last year's Arkansas team versus this year's Arkansas team Kayla, what do you see being a big difference? Yeah, I look at last year's team and they were good. They could hit the long ball just like this year's team can. But the difference is all of the batting averages one through 9 are up this season. They just are more consistent and then you add the impact player like a KB size at the top of the lineup that's the catalyst that in my opinion is the best player in conference play the best player in the league this year. What she's been able to do to set the table at the top has been the difference and why they've been able to win some more games this year, but I think to be that more complete team. Yeah, in talking about complete Lenny malkin is another one who last year you heard about her, but wasn't necessarily hitting for much average, more so power numbers, and she came back this year saying, I want to be able to hit for average and power. I want to make a big contribution to this team. And that's what she's done. She's come in really been able to raise that average and stay consistent with the power numbers. Yeah, Lenny said she really worked a lot with coach Michael on her mindset, her approach, not just going up there to swing and put a ball in play, but to see what pitches she could swing at to put a ball in play with authority. So that's why we're still seeing those power numbers, but also that increase in batting average consistency as well. And of course, we got to talk in the circle for that. We got to talk about Mary hath and shanice del's and the job that they've been able to do all season long. I think we all knew coming into this season that Mary happ was going to be awesome because she always is, but them being able to add Chinese that has that hard drop ball that of course, you know, she learned in one day, no big deal. But they compliment each other so well that I think it makes it really difficult for offenses to prepare for them. And I think what sets shanice dels apart from maybe a Mary happened a lot of other pictures in this league is that she came in new. She came in as a transfer. This is her first year in the SEC, not a lot of teams knew her. So she had the ability not only to add that drop to kind of make her gain a little bit more well rounded out, but nobody knew her coming in and she just came in and surprised a lot of people. It's like being a freshman all over again. Nobody knows anything about you, but when we were talking to coach difo, you know, she said, yes, she has the drop ball, but she also has a really good rise ball..

"SEC now all week starting tonight from the SEC softball tournament in Gainesville. And we are back. Great to have you here and let's check out Denver, Landon. I'm sorry, in Tennessee. Hello, Landon. Go right ahead. Yeah, I'm glad if you take my calls, I missed your time well. Thank you. I was just wanting to ask if you what you thought if you thought that coach Apple had the two C volunteers program headed in the right direction. Most certainly landed, I think he was the best of the new coaches last year. And I think he did the most with what he had. And he didn't have very much. I think the season was remarkable. And I frankly think what hinden hooker and some more players coming back. He has a chance to get off to a really fast start here. I think Tennessee should it beat Florida. Could rush out to a four zero record, which would be fabulous, especially with LSU and Alabama coming up next. Hey, thank you very, very much for the call. Rob is in indie. Rob gar ahead. Brother Paul, how are you? We are well. Thank you. Good, long time listener, longtime reader first time caller. I used to listen to read to you, we were headed down to play millsaps, college, Birmingham southern. Well, thank you. Appreciate you taking my call. My question is, what? I feel like I feel like the NIL is long gone and that toothpaste isn't going back in the tube. But what they have to get their hands around is to transfer for a portal what do you think that down the road we get ourselves in a situation where maybe kids can accept the IO money until they're enrolled in school, which brings me to my next question. How far away are we from a kid who's going to hold out because he doesn't have enough NIL money, but he's enrolled in school and on an athletic tender. And what do you what do you think? What do you think that these teams are going to do in those situations? I'll hang up a little bit. Yeah, rob. Everything you've laid out there is a possibility. We saw the situation a couple of weeks ago at Miami. You had a basketball player who came in, got in IL money, and then you had a player on the team who said, you know what? I'm out of here unless I get more. I thought we went through last season with remarkably few problems. I might sure I heard of any problems because it was so new and quite frankly, virtually nobody was making much money on most teams, you had about 25% of the players making anything and most of them were not making very much. This year will be completely different. And I think that's why everyone is talking about it. Thank you for the call. Very much appreciative. Let's check in with Dave, who is in Mississippi. Hello, Dave. Hey, Paul. First time caller, listen a lot. Loving the salt life down here at the beach. Thank you. Anyway, the reason I called two or three quick points, I was a college athlete and I went to Florida state, but high school and West Virginia and coach B recruited me along with you might know Tommy pridemore. I played against Ted. And I go down to Florida state. I kind of made the staff mad the way it turned out. And then lo and behold, he comes down to the seminoles. And after spring ball, it was come on in, son. We're going in a different direction. You want me to call Marshall, and that's where I ended up on my people from West Virginia. And these people need to know, these are one year contracts. Our coach can pull that contract anytime he wants. So these kids, if they want to transfer out, should have no problem. People need to know what goes on. And the NIL, the second point real quick is college football is nothing but the minor leagues for the NFL. And why these ADs and presidents don't get together and say, look, donate some money so all these student athletes can get a hundred bucks a month or whatever. I got two granddaughters playing softball one at my Alma mater and the other one down at those low life Gators and I send them grandpa does that thing. But these kids, some of these kids come from poor, they don't have enough for pizza. And why the NFL, they get all of our product, why has it somebody brought that up? Well, those are all very, very good questions. Thank you for the call. Let me check in with Ron, who is in Ocala, hello, Ron, go right ahead. May I how you been, bro, I love you, man. Ron, thank you. I'm good. Really good to hear from you. Thank you. Man, I'm great. I've been doing good, but listen man, I've been listening and I'm just getting a little bit too here. Because it seems like history is repeating itself again. This is the sad scenarios we had back in the day, Paul. When I used to talk to you and I know we had the bad light with the bad coaching or whatever. And so now I see that we're doing the same thing over again. I see that you guys are assuming that Florida is not going to go ahead and take care of the east outside of Georgia. And that's just ridiculous. But what we got going on with AR over there, come on now. Let's get back to reality. Tennessee is not ready yet, and you just Kentucky. I'm sorry. I know what happened last year, but come on, let's wake up. Let's wake up still Florida. Ron, I know we heard from Barrett Chile earlier who's very high on floor. I guess I just need to see it. I will say this. I think Richardson is a phenomenal player. I don't think Florida in any way was as bad as the record last year. I mean, I was down in Gainesville. I saw that Alabama game. I saw how close they came to pulling through. I'm so sad for my brother, Mullen. Because he's a brother, he's still family. But sometimes and I hate to say this, you know, pride or whatever you want to call it. It gets ahead of us. Listen, you still got Joe that these kids are 5 star kids. You got to put them on the field. You have to, you have to be smarter than that. And those situations. And it wasn't just that. It was all the other stuff from the year before. All of the had on the dance where he dropped the LSU game in this and that. Listen, I'm telling you now, if y'all was thinking, y'all about to run over Florida, then you got another thing coming because I guarantee you will be right back with Georgia. And Paul, if you don't believe me, with Tennessee, we can go ahead and put back on the Jersey again. We can do a ten Darryl. If one foot ever receiver going out, he already know what the puppies is like. So stop barking online and all of that. I'm still the Don right here. Well, one thing that hasn't changed, Ron is, as a Florida fan, your attitude is the same as it's always been regardless of the record. I appreciate and applaud that. Hey, thank you very much for the call. Let's continue. Denver is up next in Florida. Hello, Denver. Hi, Paul. This is Denver I'm a first time caller and they were raw and I'm a big gator. And I was looking in Todd mcshay's top drop.

Dave Carder: The Danger of Spending More Alone Time With Your Friend

"You begin to spend more alone time with a friend than with a spouse. And you say, no way. Oh yes, this happens easy. If you're on a softball team, a coed volleyball team, if you're on a warship team at some church and you're singing at rehearsals and if you're in a mission feeding the poor or if you're on a hiking club, you can very easily spend more alone time with this friend than you do with your spouse. It's unbelievably easy to do. If your spouse does not have access to all your conversations, then in this culture they don't email and texting and all kinds of ways you can relate to each other. The spouse doesn't know what's half the things that's going on, that you're communicating with.

"Can fish welcome to the studio? Thanks, Eric. It's great to be back. You're not just in the program. You're in the studio with me, breathing the same oxygen. It's not zoom. And it's not zoom. All right, so I always ask you the same kind of softball question when we get together, hey, what's new? Before I do that, I don't want to assume everybody tuning into the program knows who you are and what you do. So let me see if I can describe you. And then you can help me clarify. You are a quantum physics major at Princeton University. And you then got involved in, what do we call it? Healing ministry, you stumbled into John wimber's church in California with your mom who is very ill at the time and you told that story last time we were together, we need to get into that. But the point is you saw insane miraculous healing and you decided, you wanted to get involved in that. You have been involved in that. You've had a business career, but you are now a full time traveling the world literally under the Aegis of orbis ministries and orbis orbis ministries dot org. And you preside over what we call meetings, gatherings, where you pray for people and stuff happens. And I've been there and you wouldn't be here if I didn't know this was real and true and that you are an authentic person. So what can we add to that before we get into the details of what you've been doing lately? I guess I'd just say, even though it may sound like I've lost my mind. I try to present myself as a rational and sane human being, but who happens to love God. And I've been privileged I would say to see all the miracles of the Bible essentially. I mean, there might be one or two. I don't know that I've ever seen the sun go backward in the sky, but oh, I saw that. Okay. But I think sometimes there is this thing, it's called the credibility gap. When you start telling stories about these Scandinavia, are you for real? Nobody lives this way.

How Do You Convert a Science-Driven Person to Jesus?

How Do You Convert a Science-Driven Person to Jesus?

"How do you convert a science driven dad to Jesus? Oh my God, talk about a softball question. How do you convert a science driven dad to Jesus? This is really simple. In my book, is atheism dead. I basically go to some lengths to explain that not only is science not the enemy of faith and faith, not the enemy of science. On the contrary, actual science inevitably will point to God. Which is to say, parentheses Jesus. It's inevitable. So the question really is, does somebody have the ideological purity and honesty in intellectual honesty to follow the evidence? If you're really science driven and you're not ideologically driven as somebody who has adopted a naturalistic materialistic scientist philosophy and you call that science because that's not science. But if you've adopted that philosophy, you have a predisposition and animus against the God of the Bible. And what I'm here to say is that if you follow the science genuinely, the science will lead you to faith in God. And I think in the book I make it clear that what we call science actual modern science comes inevitably out of Christian culture. There's just no way around it. And I give you the details in the book. So the canard that sciences at odds with faith or faith with science, it has to be exploded. People have to understand that that's not true and that anybody who's bought into the idea that I'm pro science and that's why I don't believe in God, you don't know what you're it's like saying, I'm pro math. That's why I don't believe in science. I mean, it's a meaningless statement, and you've bought into something. So I think that if you're dealing with a person a friend or a relative a dad, you know, you want to be kind about that. I don't think you want to be, you need to be in their face, but I always hope that my book will help them to see that they've missed some of these pieces, probably and they need to recalibrate their

This was we're talking about, we're not even talking about softball questions. It's like he gave her the ball and the bat. And allowed her to guide this conversation. And Hillary Clinton is claiming that president Trump and his ill and that would be us were the ilk. We used to be the basket of deplorables. Now we're just ilk. That Hillary Clinton says that a demagogue has taken over the Republican Party. And sadly, the Republican Party has gone along with him. And for the life of me, people who I knew that I served with who fall in line on the outrageous accusations they make, whether it's against doctor Tony Fauci or pretending that what happened on January 6th wasn't an insurrection, honestly, they have hung their spines up on the wall as they walk into their offices.

Rebekah Lyons Discusses the Title of Her New Devotional 'a Surrendered Yes: 52 Devotions to Let Go and Live Free'

"I'm going to ask you you know the softball question that i ask A writer of a book the title. Okay by the way great title. It's called a surrendered. yes Fifty two devotion to let go and live free as surrendered. Yes the softball question is what does that mean yes. Well none of us want to surrender. Usually never choose that But what i've learned is. That's always a nudge a whisper. It's a. It's something that prompts us. That usually takes us to a place. That's going to shift our life possibly or shift our everyday. Maybe it's a posture. Maybe it's a decision of growing families shifting careers moving across country. But then i also think it's very much in everyday practice of gratitude of forgiveness of surrender really just accepting. What is so that you can actually get that out and then to kind of interrupt that and show you what a healing journey looks like. So what prompted you to write a devotional. I've actually thought of doing that. At some point because i have a lot of those kinds of thoughts and i think that's valuable thought and if it's a valuable thought you know it probably didn't originate with you because truth is truth wisdom's wisdom. It's it's from the lord but like when did you get the idea that because he obviously britain other books but when you get the idea that you wanted to do a devotional devotional well. I've found that the themes i kept writing about. We're always surrender. Just this acceptance of the way things are instead of fighting against. I found that my anxiety was really rooted in pushing against her fighting against the obstacles or the barriers. In my life that i would come up again. And so that would actually increase anxiety by fighting against it versus accepting it and then finding the peace lead my heart and so i just thought if this is a a season of life like my anxiety journey started eleven years ago panic attacks and then it's now been a healing journey for a season. It's like part of that. Came a dovetailed with this. This acceptance this release saying god okay. i don't wanna live life the way life never looks the way we plant anyways so we can either get mad about that and be frustrated and fight it or we can go okay that that serenity prayer grammy the the wisdom to accept what i cannot change but then to know the difference of the things i

So when you were starting out how are you thinking about what was possible for a career in tennis. I played team sports as child. I in a lot of people may or may not know my younger brother. Randy moffett moderates are birth. Name became a major league baseball player. So sports is in our blood. I dad was a good athlete. My mother was good athlete.

While i go out to have my first session with clyde and at the end of it i knew i wanted to be the number one tessler in the world but then was amateur and i didn't like that because i grew up around pro sports pro met. You're really good at what you did and amateur. Music was a hobby so one of the first things. I wanted to change sport. As far as being a professional sport it were none really no options as a child for girls and today there's still many more options for boys. What really happened though. What really changed my life. My epiphany was when i was twelve. I was just daydream. One day and realize that everybody who played tennis for white shoes and white clothes play with white balls and everybody who played was white. And i asked myself whereas everybody else. Where is everyone else. So that was my moment that i dedicate the rest of my life to fighting for equality for everyone everything i've done. We'll go back to that moment.

Who Decides Which Sports Are in the Olympics?

"So the delayed twenty twenty tokyo olympics happened the other week complete with thirty three sports and three hundred thirty nine events including four new sports and to discontinued sports. Brought back from the dead. That's the funny thing about the olympic games. The games themselves change almost every time in terms of new events. You might have seen the karate skateboarding sport climbing or serving you might have. I didn't what i saw. The olympics was mostly clips on my favorite memes site. The resurrected sports were baseball and softball. Last seen at the two thousand eight beijing olympics the international olympic committee had decided to make a commitment to the youth by bringing sports to them in urban environments. A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country. How much would it cost to hold and broadcast the event and how much value the sport would be to the olympic legacy.

"This big banner that said bong hits for jesus and they got disciplined. And i mean when you really think about that i mean okay maybe material disruption but can anyone take a joke and off school grounds however the majority of the court mostly the conservatives on the court did not think this was okay and so the way justice. Breyer has now categorized. This decision is like oh. You're on a school trip and you do something that you know makes the school and the students look bad and it's about drugs and so like that's not okay. I would argue that. This decision which. I think is called morse. Versus frederick should have a whole lot of precedential value going forward. Let's talk just briefly about this. Nca case emily. This was a unanimous opinion and found that the ncaa banning universities from offering kinds of educational benefits beyond scholarship. So things like extra tutoring and laptop laptops and that ban was was not. And i think what is interesting about. This does not open the door for ncaa athletes to be paid directly but it it does not allow that but it does open the door to this argument being made more directly. Especially when you look at the concurrent opinion that cavanaugh wrote which has lot nowhere else. In america can businesses get away with agree not to pay their workers a fair market rate and the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers fair market rate. Yeah i loved that. That was great. Kevin is a good writer He really cares about college sports from what i've heard. So is this a big case services. Small case it's a big case because it indicates that the nc double a. is basically been operating with some giant exception to antitrust law. Which is that. It sets these rules for how students are. Athletes are treated how sports are conducted. And it's basically price-fixing and it's been the heart of its just ificationbut is now pretty much like dead and not justification was like the reason that college sports exists and has an audience is because it's amateur and so we can't pan eu on or provide these benefits because we have to preserve its amateur nature and the problem with that argument. Of course. Is that as justice. Gorsuch points out in his majority opinion. I mean this is just a billion dollar industry. In which the coaches the administrators are making million dollar salaries and the students are effectively getting nothing and some of them get drafted into professional sports. But some of them don't most of them don't and some of them get injured along the way and we also know that often the quality of their college education really suffers because they're spending all their time doing their sport so i think it's really important that that kind of really false justification of the nc double a. has been broken and you know the question is what are the ramifications going to be in the short term students are going to be able to get more of these education related benefits clearly down the line. Are they going to be able to bargain for much more. What happens to all sports that don't that are not lucrative and don't make any money right because of title nine we have these rules about equal representation along gender lines. We have lots and lots of like teams like you know. I don't know gymnastics sailing tennis. Whatever the don't make any money. They cost a lot of money and then to some degree the football and basketball and hockey programs that generate revenue support those other sports in like. I don't know enough about the money part but through a huge degree to a huge degree. Okay so now you should start talking. Because i don't really know that much about how this works except i'm really interested to see if the whole structure changes. Well i can give you only my limited exposure. I got when i did the piece on returning to college During the age of the pandemic which would have been august of twenty twenty and a lot of what was at issue about returning was being able to return the sporting teams to the field particularly the football team and they were gonna put thousands of people in the stadiums and not have any kids in the classrooms right wherever it because it brings in so much money. Not just the playing of the game but in terms of raw alumni. We all love our team school. And we're now going to write a check. So what i wonder is. If in the argument you talked about the salary of the coaches whether it could also be claimed that the schools benefit because of the distribution of the money to the other departments. Whether that's another way in which the school benefits economically in the athletes. Don't what i wonder emily. You expect or could imagine. Let's say someone claiming on the badminton because you can imagine a race to the top or bottom depending on your point of view in terms of giving athletes. You know it's going to be the not only the best possible laptop that they're going to get but they might also get some other things that would be really stretching the definition it would basically be like income but they'll find a way to to argue around. It would a badminton team. Persons have a legal claim to say. Hey i'm is good in my sport. Sure we don't make much money. But i should get the same kind of inducements or would that not be the kind of claim that would come to challenge this. I mean i don't really think so because if you if you imagine that there's no Effective cartel and no price-fixing. Then you're just at market rate value right and the badminton. Players market rate value is significantly lower than the star football players market value. I mean i guess..

"It is a good week to have been a student at the supreme court at least student who is on a team or trying to get on a team so emily can you quickly brief us on the two big decisions this week involving students. Yeah so the supreme court finally took a case about students rights to free speech when they are off campus and in particular when they're writing something on social media and a student known by her initials. B l one case in which. She had challenged getting suspended from her cheerleading team for a year because she wrote yes brandy levy brand. And what. what's the actual quote again. The fox school softball. Cheer fuck everything okay. Snapchat with her middle finger raised. Yes so she won and it was an aide to indecision justice even briar a big accomplishment at the end of this term. Just noting that for justice briar. The dissenter was clarence. Thomas also known as his penultimate term. And what's important about this case. Was that the court lay down. I think what should be obvious. Principles for schools principals like legal principles not principal leaders. Which is that students have to greater free speech rights when they're off campus then on and there's this funny phrase that briar used that the schools are nurseries of democracy and so they should be helping to instill in their students the value of free speech. Even if you disagree with it you're supposed to defend it. Felt the word. Nurseries was a little much like training grounds but have been nicer high school students or not in nursery school. But i think that general principle is important. This case doesn't go very far. This was a really a lot of ways. Like a set of easy facts right. It didn't involve an attack on a teacher school administrator it wasn't bullying sounding off in a way that was critical of her team. And yes she used the word fuck and other than that. There was really nothing wrong with it and so it didn't rise to the level of a standard. The court has used before which is that. In order to be disciplined a student speech has to substantially disrupt the workings of a school or like impede on someone else's rights. There was just nothing like that here and so there are a lot of unanswered questions going forward. And let's talk about this case and then the nc double a. Case later. Emily i. I found myself strangely. Ambivalent about this case agreed that. Of course this is this didn't rise to the level of disruption certainly would have voted with the majority but in a social media age off the off campus on campus. Distinction is really weird and not. It's not tenable that this was what she said was to a snapchat group that included huge numbers of her classmates and it involves something having to do with school. It didn't this was not a case. That involved her saying something. Racist or sexist or homophobic. But you can imagine that like people do that and there those if you do that and it's not directed at another student or and it's not directly about a school activity could that be conceived as being disruptive to the school the just the boundaries of school are so porous and the boundaries of speech are so porous in an age of of social media that it's it's really hard to yes. This is a pretty easy case. But i feel like there must be a billion other cases which are much harder where the obligation of the school to maintain kind of order and to not allow bullying and harassment to take place would be pretty significant and where they're going to have to be able to punish students well so let's imagine emily. You can tell me how you would phrase this question if you were teaching in. Let's go. Let's imagine she had put a a teacher's name in that list or be a student's name. Yeah that would be a different case. And i think the court made that clear because they talked about attacks on school officials verbal attacks amien and serious bullying and harassment as separate categories. They weren't addressing. they also said that. A student's speech off campus that was political or religious in nature that there would be a high bar for schools to be able to discipline. And so i think some of the categories are talking about david could fall into that realm bright and yes for sure there have been much harder cases. I mean. I remember a case. I think it was the ninth circuit. So maybe california of a kid who was wearing a t-shirt that was critical of gay people in school and bat is like a much harder situation because you can see how other students and other people at the school would feel about it. But that's also that kids political speech rights. And i i think the material disruption standard is a pretty good one for in school. I disagree with you about social media. I mean yes. It's very porous and yes. It can have an impact in school but if you think that everything that kids right on social media is is hot or for school discipline first of all you put a tremendous burden on the schools to actually have to monitor and police all that speech. I mean that is just a mess for them and second of all like then. Kids have no sphere of privacy effectively. I mean no spirit of free speech that isn't affected by the rules of school of note hundred percent but it's it's different than when we were kids when what you could say would be limited to. The group could say it to publicly. Not you couldn't say. In this massive forum that encompasses the entire world and in these groups that encompass significant portions of the school in which which are not official school groups function as quote paris school groups. And yeah i hear you. I if she said in the snapchat group like like fuck you know the black girls who made the squad think. Yeah right i mean. I guess you could argue. That's political in nature but you could also imagine that have been tremendously disruptive in the school in a way that would clearly meet the standard for substantial disruption right. I mean there was a a speech case from school a few years ago where these girls were accusing another girl having herpes and got disciplined. And like i mean come on and it was it was first of all was seemed false and defamatory but also it was incredibly cruel and it was a whole bunch of them and that kind of thing you start to feel like okay you can really see how that would infringe on the student's ability to be at school that the overflow effect of the social media into school would realize level. We're talking about. But i mean i do want to speak up for one of justice. Briars key principles. Which is that. School sometimes are clearly in the place of the parent right in loco parentis latin phrase but sometimes they're not and some of this. We have to leave to private resolution within families even if that creates discomfort. I mean we just. I just don't wanna see my kids entire discipline you know kind of like inculcating values to the school that they go to especially because school attendance is basically compulsory right. You're not choosing it exactly. Emily can you explain the difference between this. And the court's decision on bong hits for jesus mostly so that i get the chance to save bong hits for jesus yeah well. The court issued this decision several years ago in it. So the facts of this case i mean i think this was a bad free speech decision. I also think now. The court has drawn a circle around it and said it like stands for. Its own thing. What happened was that they were passing the olympic torch and the kids were like a block away from the school or at least off of school grounds and some of them as a prank unfurled..

"Yeah that was a good rent. I liked that. That was great. Let's just leave this topic with the question. Emily could tucker become an elected official. Could he actually successfully run for president. His audience is four million a night. He doesn't have the profile trump did he is of course known trump in the conservative circles. And they've all heard of him and he's he's probably the most popular media figure but he doesn't have this worldwide reputation that trump did and certainly reputation as a successful business person but is he. Is he a legitimate reasonable candidate. Or yes. I mean legitimate. Yes he is a candidate who can win. I mean. I think i was reading somewhere that. Tv personalities are the most underrated political candidates as a general matter. like one. smart thing to do is go find them and recruit them to run for office for either the democratic or the republican party depending on your political leanings and tucker seems like this sort of giant for example of that what did the examples besides donald trump. I don't know just that. Apparently tv personalities have name recognition and high approval ratings. And so you can capitalize on that. I'm sure there are other examples of like local and state office. Just not thinking of them. One thing that we should support your previous assertion david to those who were not immediately in agreement with it about the idea of. I'm you know zola. Big joke is that that's what fox news has claimed in court that basically carlson shouldn't be on the hook for anything he says because it's obviously hyperbole and everybody would take it in the hyperbolic manner in which it's presented. There's a second part of that. Which is the sort of. I'm just asking questions you know which is like is bleach really a refreshing midsummer afternoon. Drink just asking questions you know. It's anyway so that. That's i mean that's being asserted in court by his employer. So it's i think that's an important part of assessing. That argument david was making bridget. Are researcher points out. Al franken and ronald reagan to cancel right in with many many more. Make us smarter than we actually are. Slate plus members. You.

"Say we were ever been friends. We were certainly friendly back in when the daily caller started. We and i did a series of online debates an emily. I think you know a john. Assume you know member weather. I've ever met him. Which i he's both like he's genuinely really funny and really smart. He's really funny really smart really quick to me he's the human embodiment of something. We've talked about a lot which is one of the sinister phenomena of modern life. Which is this. it's a joke. Oh what i'm saying is a joke. But and if you don't take it as a joke you're a smoke and pompous fool. But then you squeeze joke and squeeze the jokin can squeeze the joke until eight. It's not funny and be then people start to then it is. You mean it as a joke so you can get away with a joke but you also were deadly serious about it which is a lot of what sort of the four chan chan sixteen chan. Thirty two chan world and tucker kind of does this in television form really really well. So ben smith the media columnists of the new york times wrote a piece this week. Which is part of why we're talking about this in which he was explaining. That tucker is a really helpful source for a lot of journalists and that that's part of why he embeds view at least gets kind of free ride sometimes or just that he's shaping trump coverage sometimes with these kind of insider anecdotes or criticisms of trump world. And i think what strikes me. And i i don't really know tucker is that he was of good matt funny really sharp magazine journalists like he did more sophisticated work than he's doing now on television and he was good at it and he seems like he should know so much better than the way he's performing on television. And so you know. Whereas with someone like sean hannity you think like will. This is just the strict. He's been doing forever with tucker. It's clear that he's capable of actual real work and not just like feeding red meat to the right wing. And i think that is tantalizing for other journalists. This notion of like. Oh you're you're part of our tribe. Oh but wait. You're doing something totally different. And g could run for president in twenty twenty four and be the kind of demagogic successor to donald trump. Well twenty thousand people read his story in the weekly standard about whether there was an abortion crisis that people aboard boarding down syndrome babies back in nineteen ninety five and four point three million people watch him every night now so you can certainly understand that. He might think that what he's doing now is more important than what he was doing. That he could still have ink. Stained fingers david just like the rest of us possibly trade away from that. No of course you're right you and there was. I don't know if he is the highest rated show in the history of cable television or has had the highest rate is rated show history but one of the two is true so this is not just a person i mean what is the opposite of what i described as his audience enjoying the outrage of those they find already outrageous which he serves up he also plays a seriously important role in the liberal world. That rush limbaugh used to play. Which is here's tucker's latest outrage. And that's another unhealthy part of the general addiction to outrage and at the physical level addiction to outrage. That's become a part of our political hobbyists. So what do we think about that. I find it very confusing. Like i remember years ago at slate. You know. i was very resistant to the peace that was launched by the what felt like kind of fox news provocation. And you know now like tucker makes up some conspiracy theory about what the fbi being behind january six sir some latest bologna. And then you see like a serious article in the new york times or the washington post know. The fbi is not behind this conspiracy theory and that kind of fact checking in debunking is something that the mainstream media takes much more seriously as part of its like obligation Right now and i just never sure what i think about it. Well we've talked about this before there's studies that show that what that ends up doing. Is that the fact. Check ends up for some people legitimising. The original crazy claim right. Or you just can't remember whether it's like even just repeating it just now i was like. Oh god i've now like imprinted it on myself and other people will and this is a part of a public conversation that he's only one major player in but now you have politicians who full-time say things. They know not to be true. In order to get fact checked so that they can a have promotion of the underlying thing that they've said that is untrue. Because it hurts somebody and then be can take bridge at being fact checked by an organization that they have all along claimed is out to get them. None of this is on the level and all of it is in bad faith and what's so damaging and so cynical and so dangerous to the human experiment is that we should be bending over backwards to give the benefit of the doubt to people to make sure that there's not misunderstanding in what we say to run the traps before saying something that we know will appeal to emotion that will cause people to to jump out of their skin. Not because we're responsible for people's bad reactions. They should think for themselves but in a busy attention shredded world. We just happen to know that. That's the way people bay. That's why those peekaboo headlines that used to be in slate and the and the provocative stuff that used to be in there. I always was hated so much. Because you're faking people out your tricking them. And you know you're doing it and you're using your art trick. Them and the argument that ultimately people fall back on is the one that slate editors used to and that newt gingrich used to which as well to get people to learn. You have to shock them. I i don't think we have that second. Beat people don't say oh. I've been shocked. Now let me have a calm discussion and thoughtful examination of this idea. You're putting forward that ain't the way it works and we know it ain't the way it works. Sorry that was a wonderful rift..

"And i mean there's some anecdote that suggests that's the case but there's also data that suggests there are in the jobs where this is supposedly affecting things. There are sufficient people applying for those jobs as there are openings there are areas washington post has a great piece although i think it may be in. Ap's where it talked about. The the areas of the economy saw mills for example where there are actual shortages so you have two openings but only one possible perspective employees per opening but in and other places you have sufficient people looking for jobs sufficient to the openings. You just have more of this churn happening. And what's interesting to me is the churn. That's happening is redefining labor. And that's happening in the economy and potentially redefining the way we think about work. But then you have this public policy effort on the part of the joe biden to redefine what it means. Sticking for example childcare and elder care in infrastructure argues essentially that those barriers to economic activity particularly for women of having to take care of kids and having to take care of your elderly parents are as significant a barrier to economic activity for those people as bad roads or bad bridges which is a redefinition of work. Really interesting. looks like it's not gonna work in terms of the infrastructure bill for right now but it was an attempt to redefine work. The saw mill case has really interesting because it case is all about a lot of different things. It's like they're not enough sawmills. They're not workers but it's also that this is a really hard dangerous job and people are not paid that well so the wages should wages have gone up quite a bit in sawmills. They've gone up ten percent in the last year. They should probably go up a lot higher and you'd get more people willing to work in them because they'd be better paid and what's interesting to me is they're all these categories of work that people slightly. They don't never say it but they slightly look down on and they they look like well you work at a starbucks or whatever and all work is dignified work. Essentially you're scamming old people out of their life savings that is not dig nuts. Not so great. Maybe that's not work. That's a crime but any any category of work that we think of as being worth it is it is filled with dignity and people should be paid. You should be paid. According to the status of that work there should be paid to how partisan and how valuable it is productive. It is and it's good to see that that side of it the value of what it is to the labor rather than what it is the corporation being taken into account more than it has been well. Also i mean to go back to your important point about how the government has been basically like shoving people into low paid work. There's an irony in seeing politicians in states like missouri and arkansas complain. That wages are rising in these rural communities where they have things like sawmills like. This is the kind of work that the traditional american you know male work that we don't have enough of in rural communities and has been blamed for all kinds of things from like the depletion of the population in those areas to the opioid crisis. So the idea that he's governors are saying. Oh we don't want the extra federal unemployment benefits because we don't think that wages should rise just seems kind of backwards you know as we redefine work. Our conversation about inflation is maybe needs to change because inflation is created by these increased wages as companies. Decide to pass along the increased wages. They're having to pay their workers onto the consumers and the the sensitivity to inflation as a political matter. I mean obviously people who live on a fixed budget don't like inflation but there's so much political sensitivity to the increase in prices and how they affect people on spending and on the consumer end but we don't talk as much about the inputs that are the result of increased wages that create a better life for those people in the wage earning end right right the inflation versus unemployment. Teeter totter that we've been on. It's been so heavily weighted towards keep inflation down and let unemployment go where will because inflation is such a threat but truly we should have more inflation than we've had that would be better for the country it would be worse for people on vics deep come to be worse for certain kinds of people who are investors but it would be better for more people switching to the this remote work question so emily do you think the dispersal of the american white collar workforce to homebase. Work is good or bad. It depends on the nature of the work that you do. I think there are a lot of jobs where people it's better both for the employer and for the employees to have some regular contact. It's not going to be true for everybody but there some amount of like generative stuff that happens when people are together. I know that there. There's some research suggesting that is like way over valued and maybe that's the case. More generally speaking. I just i'm sort of attached to it from my own. Experience are here is a topic that makes me kind of queasy. Probably you listeners. Know gabfest listener habits tucker carlson and his influence on american life which is a lot more than i wish it was tucker has eroded trust in vaccines and masking. He has said really terrible. Things about immigrants would be immigrants and their effect on the united states has tacitly promoted a a white nationalist or even a white supremacist ideas. About what the united states should be. He's caused waves of harassment. Descend on various journalists. Why john has he become the tribune of this really. Mean spirited politics that demonize and derides and flirts with white supremacy. Well because i think he's good at it. I mean he's very good at pushing these buttons and he's very good at certain kinds of argumentation. That are in a negative partisanship world. Highly beneficial and useful. And i think donald trump's rise is both a symbol of that and also proved proof of concept and i think he's. He's very talented at playing. In this in this area and the ways in sleight of hand he uses in the way the appeals to the emotion in the the logical leaps he does i think gar incredibly powerful and he has an audience. That is thrilled by being fed evermore outrages about the people that they find outrageous i guess i know tucker some he and i were..

"One the f. school f softball. Cheer f everything edition. I'm david plots of the city. Cast here in washington dc. I am joined by emily baz. Lana the new york times magazine and yale university law school. Hello emily and by john dickerson of cbs. Sunday morning and face the nation and a to be named later new project which doesn't have a name and therefore cannot be named hello john dickerson the john dickerson. Experience that that'd be great john dickerson's excellent adventure the experience it would involve like carrying a guitar around having a little notebook that you're scribbling all the time looking soulful that's right. It'd be great petting the dog. I think you've got three quarters of the pitch right. There show would be great. It would be so popular this week. We'll talk about. What is the future of work in the post pandemic age and will offices survive then tucker carlson how did he become the vox of a rage full populi and are we stuck with him forever. Then to supreme court cases empower students in one case. Ncaa athletes in another case. A high school student bellyaching online about cheer plus. We'll have cocktail chatter. What is happening to american workers. It is wild. They are abandoning retail jobs in huge numbers. Those who avoid who can avoid coming back to an office or avoiding coming back to an office. They're seeking higher wages everywhere. And perhaps coincidentally. We'll talk about this. We're also undergoing the fastest labor productivity gains in decades as employers are adding labor saving technology that help them get through the pandemic and now helping. It's helping them get through labor shortage and that is creating productivity increases in productivity. So emily is it good or a bad time to be an american worker. I think it's kind of a good time. I mean this is so surprising to me. I was so worried about the aftershocks of the pandemic and how it was going to affect people especially lower income people and it actually seems like there's been this jolt to both employers employees and now obviously i'm like wildly generalizing because it's so hard to say anything about the national economy but there are sectors with traditionally low paid work those kind of crappy and people just don't seem to be settling for it to the same degree and so the employers to some extent are starting to offer perks. Offer to pay more. There are a lot more teenagers working this summer in particular than there have been before and i think that workers are feeling like they can be more picky about the conditions of their work about how they wanna work how often and then of course there's the whole fascinating topic of removing work especially in white collar jobs and how much that is going to be just a much bigger presence in people's lives than it has been up until now one of the interesting points that's been made here is that it has effectively been government policy in the united states to push americans into lower wage jobs. We don't say that but the effect of making it hard to join a union of not raising minimum wage of allowing large numbers of low-wage imigrants is to create a situation where there's always a push to make it hard to get welfare for people to take the jobs that are available in those jobs can be set at wages that are not livable. And there's an amazing amazing statistics. About the percentage of americans who are an extremely low wage jobs and it's much much higher than the percentage of japanese or the percentage of germans or french who are in low wage jobs because we have made that government policy and all of a sudden because of the increase in unemployment insurance because of the kind of of the pandemic because of these jobs shortages that policy has been turned on its head and there are a lot of people who seem to want that to be our policy. They want it to be like oh employer should be able to hire whoever they want whatever wages they wanna pay a lot of people like our corporate overlords and the politicians who take big donations from them represent their interest rate. But in fact the policy should be and this has been a policy that has been made it's been more concentrated with republicans and democrats. But it's really been pretty universal. I mean democrats have been kind of on the free trade side of this and the immigration side of this to a certain extent too but the policy should definitely be like we want americans to get the best jobs at the highest wage that they can that they want not that we want americans all working every job that is a possibly available. You want the jobs to be at the highest possible. It's interesting that we've had this kind of reset where suddenly there's whole categories of jobs that people are unwilling to take and it's it's exciting. I mean john. If people are not working in their turning down jobs they lazy. no good knicks. Which that's what we're in a row. Where interesting match over. What work means and what the dignity of work means and there is this moment we talked about this. In the early stages of the pandemic weather would create a policy driven recap reappraisal of policy and at the time the argument was busy. Trying to survive to have the reappraisal. I think we're having the reappraisal now it's happening in two arenas and the question is which one is the more effective in the public policy. Arenas you suggested david. There are a lot of republican governors. Who believe that there are lazy. No good knicks who are sticking with their unemployment checks and not going out to seek work..

It's just it's it's my call to do I love people and to be able to give back and just really impact people in the best ways possible. It's just special. It sounds like you obviously are highly involved with your community and you are getting recognized for being highly involved with your community. It looks like you have been acknowledged a number of times, winning looks like in the University of Arkansas the female community service award and obviously you love giving back. So what is it like being acknowledged for having such a passion for giving back in me having such a passion for being involved with the community outside of sports. So I was on the SEC. I was named to the SEC community service team two years in a row so being acknowledged by the SEC for that out of all of the universities that are within the SEC to be named to that was pretty special and addition to boost. It was the first year that they did it this past year. I was named to the University of Arkansas female student-athlete community service award. So being able to get that off. Individually it just I mean it's good to be acknowledged for the hard work that you put in but it's selfless work. And you know, honestly, I don't need an Accolade. Um, because I just love doing it being able to be recognized was super special. But again, it's just it's just a great opportunity super special to be able to impact people and God back. We hope that you continue to give back especially with the holiday season coming up actually my boyfriend and I were going back up to Massachusetts, which is where I'm from were driving up this Thursday..

It's like you had such an amazing experience and you obviously grew both as a woman and an athlete while playing there for the duration of that time and I am very curious to hear how excited an amped-up you were to be able to play for your home state. So you didn't even really thought of that far away you literally I think you mentioned you were just three hours away from where you grew up back home. So what was it like playing for your home state and having your family members? I'd assume that they offer. Able to go watch and play so it was like having that backbone having your family go watch you play. And yes, let's hear about that experience. Well, like I said earlier in the show when you grow up in the state of Arkansas, you are a die-hard Razorback fan. So it was my dream to play for the University I go out there. I got to put on that Razorback red have Arkansas across my chest being able to step out on a field and see all of the faces in the stands and all of the little girls who I was once in their shoes up there call in the Hogs. I mean it gives me like chicken even still thinking about it to this day for years of getting to fully immerse myself into the university just put so much into the softball program and represent the state being from the state of Arkansas. It's an experience like no other and I will be the first person to say just like everyone else in the state that one you're from the south. The state of Arkansas backs you up and supports you so much great fans great environment great atmosphere and getting to be in between those white lines down softball game out in center field and get to look around and see those three thousand plus people who would come to our games where in the Razorback logo on their chest calling the Hogs home?.
