"They shouldn't be on the ballot next year. I don't want to play in the game. Don't put him on the ballot. I think it's a reflection of today's generation where you don't appreciate the fans voting you on the team. So for me a lot of these guys whether the peers voted them on or whether the fans voted them on. You do not show up as disrespectful, not just at the game. But to the next generation of players So you're saying as long I'm assuming Assuming like injuries, you make that a valid excuse, like maybe something going on with the family if you just don't show up because you don't want to show up, never be on the ballot ever again. No, no, not just the next year. You should know about the next year, you know, and that should be some kind. There's got to be a way to penalize. These guys are not showing up. Obviously injuries totally different, but even still show up. You know, I mean, I I understand. My You know, my ex wife was pregnant. Uh, during might second all Star game and I still showed up, You know, I mean, those are some things that you know what you miss funerals, Miss Weddings, miss bursts of you kids. That stuff is going to happen, but you still should show up at least to participate in some of the other stuff. There's a fan fast. There's there's all these different dinners where there's a lot of corporate people that go and you you need to show up because that's what keeps the game going. That's what keeps the next generation going. And I think that a lot of these guys not doing that. Is very disrespectful, and it doesn't show a lot of taking forward and paying this forward to the next generation of player because then there's going to be another generation is like, well, Hey, these guys back in 2021. They didn't want to go. So why should I go? So for me the bad precedent to start not just showing up, but the injuries totally different thing. If you're injured, you should still at least show up. You just don't play. Rob Devil here with us. How about these All Star game jerseys? I'm not a Big Jersey guy, but they're putrid right now. Horrible, horrible. Listen, first of all the problem, and that was a player reps. The problem is that there's no do thinkers and Major league baseball love. The NBA does this. I love the city stuff. Love that the we do color rush stuff in the NFL if you're MLB You know, continue some traditions. The one thing that Rob Medford has destroyed with now going back on his seven inning, double head or stuff that was lame to begin with. Blaming cold bit of everything. And then the runner on second. Listen, it's uh, softball League. It's major league baseball. It's the highest level you've got to set a standard. It's the bar stop lowering the bar of Major League baseball, so I mean they need a new commissioner. He also needed loves the game that will carry on the tradition of the game. To understand that the guys playing it deserves respect that the game deserves. Stop trying to do all these students gimmicky things. And so their clinic. The uniforms are gimmicks. It's joke. I think that you know the one thing. Opera Kansas City. I want to see the royal blue out there. If I'm the Yankees. Fans. I want to see the guys out there. They don't have the names on the back because we know who our players are. Cup. Same thing. Red Sox Anything. My wife's a huge Red Sox man, you know, seeing that little be on Xander Bogaerts chest and a Navy blue uniform doesn't do the Red Sox in uniform. Uh, you know, justice, So for me, it's just it's all these gimmicks. That you're taking from other games. It's really not helping baseball. Carry on 100 and 50 Year tradition. Rob Devil, I can't stand the commissioner and Rob Manfred. I've been very critical of him before. Would you want to see Theo Epstein? I feel like that's the name that a lot of people go to. Would you want to see him? Be Commissioner? Not absolutely not feel is right there with Rob Manfred, Listen, I don't need Harvard, Yale guys to be the exhibition er, I need something that loves the game to be the commissioner Rob Manfred, a great labor, loyal lawyers, Collective labour law. You know, I mean, my business partners lawyer love them. I don't. I don't know if you know he's the right guy to be the commissioner of Major League Baseball, you know that you've got to find someone I'd rather have Bob Costas. As the commissioner, you know, bring bring somebody like that, or Jim caught or somebody that you know, Please 30 years in the major leagues that is going to understand. Listen, the only way we're going to carry on baseball, especially in this country is we've got to go into the urban communities that we've got to rebuild and have more African American athletes play baseball at every level. Like I coached five AU teams here in Connecticut, and we're going down to Ripken this weekend. We're going all over the country for my kids to experience it. I have. Dominican players, Puerto Rican players of African American players of Asian players. I'm doing my best to try to, you know, rebuild baseball around my community. That's what Major league Baseball needs to do You You've got to get these kids to love baseball and Gimmick ng things like the the the runner on second or robo arms and all this other stuff that's not helping. You've got to get these kids to fall in love with baseball, uh, the way I did watching Reggie Jackson on TV as a kid. You know, watching Steve Garvey, watching all these other guys play their hearts out. You know, when I was growing up in Internet IQ it So for me, that's where it is, You know, with all the other stuff that they've under the game, the last 10 years, you're not getting a lot of inner city kids wanted to play it. So, Tony the face of Major League baseball right now, in your opinion. Not my opinion. My opinion. It's it's Xander Bogaerts. It's Francisco Livedoor. It's a wants Soto. It's even, uh you know, uh, Acuna Jr. I mean, yeah. Otani is great if you're on the West Coast But the kids on my teams they loved Lynn Door they love. I'll tell you what, all the kids were the eye Black just like to tease junior and I've coached on the West Coast I've coached on the East Coast from the East Coast. Uh, these kids, they they love who they love..

"On the League in the ones that were not allowed to be on the League and I'm so happy like when somebody you know in this industry when when they didn't even pass but they were like we're just GonNa make a pilot that was initially a big blow. I guess this room this didn't work like we gotta start over at you know at the beginning and I'm like I'm so happy that that happened. Because we actually found the voice and and unfortunately that room was great like. I said incredible writers. It was just like a totally I just read all the scripts this past month it's just a totally different version. Makes Sense just not to cut you off but like it also makes sense, it'll be a different version of knowledge because they're starting to make this show in two thousand seventeen but then you're making it twenty twenty, those three years like in terms of media I just think we've had love craft country we've had watchmen like we've had. These shows that are. Like more honestly speaking about the black experience I think if you're making this shit or making league of their own, the stuff that you were just sort of referencing weirdly. I can't imagine why this is true. I know a lot about this subject and I know that some of the stuff that you're talking about is that like black women were not allowed to play in the league. I also know. That there was a lot of actual clearness going on in the League and solely interesting. I just think it makes sense that there would also be a stutter step because. TV changed so much. Excited tuna today. Yeah and I think that like you know even in the past seven eight months. Yes. Drastically and I will say like listen it only. It only has made us. I think initially in twenty seventeen in two, thousand, eighteen I was most nervous about people being so obsessed with the movie and this being a very different take. But the original pitchers like it's a hander, it's really a two hander between. I'm going to it's it's to hinder between the character I play Carson who is a white woman who goes to try out for the League in what happens when that door opens and it's about this character Max, who's a black woman who goes in? That door doesn't open and she's based on a handful of women who ended up going to play in the in the Negro Leagues with men, and that was always our pitch and the and that was a part of the initial room, but it just has been like more and more those two narratives. and. The League, the the new Latin narrative in the league part is the queasiness that was not really exploited on the film. Those through things have only been more talked about and represented, and and we felt like gathers dislike so much there to kind of dive into. And the the past year especially I mean, we shot the pilot and then you know. Everything that's been happening in our country in the world we're like. Okay, I feel good about the choices we made on this show I'm excited to go into writing the back half of it. You know I feel good about the characters we have like it'd be. It'd be different if we had just shot the pilot and then we like hadn't made it'd be like, oh no. Yeah. Absolutely. May I know that you talked about The like fan the Phantom of that movie which is so. Broad and so deep What about like your sports history? Jock. It's funny. I was growing up I grew up. Outside Philadelphia. You, know very! And integrate way. The the women sports around me were like wildly competitive. I my biggest soccer I played travel soccer. I really good at travel soccer kind of until I started smoking weed. And then my like priorities shifted, and I also I come from a family where where visual artists like very important ended up going like art. But a lot of my friends growing up ended up going to play like college they got scholarships for from across in soccer to Georgetown. It was a very my high school. the women's teams were like incredible. So I ended up playing not really at high school because they were so good and I didn't take it as seriously but I went to overnight camp for a long time as a kid. And it was like. Predominantly Jews and my high school was no Jewish peoples as the only Jew. And so I was like good at sports at home. But when I went to Camp I was really good. So I was like really good. With all of the other Jews, not so good with the non. Top Jew in sports I was pretty good all around all around but I did I played softball for a long time soccer again was like my sport I played basketball a little bit Yeah. I was I was jock probably until I was Yeah I couldn't I couldn't do like actually actual school sports. That's still asked I asked for specific reason which is like. I something a little older than you but we're not such a different generation but my sister. Is like three years older than me and. Because of wind title nine happened like the actual trickle down of that like she sort of just over the cutoff where like travel soccer soccer teams that thing that I have such context for like that wasn't a thing. So like three years how she added on like the the like the town we grew up on, you know they had. Like a soccer league in Softball League and also like I was a swimmer and I was basketball player volleyball clearly I was all of these things in she liked just played softball and was kind of bad at it like that was for full access point for sports how in the direction of dance but It's just very interesting because like I know there were some..

"They played really well in the national park, but I always felt Strategy. That game was better even if you had a manager that was on American League club that had been actually manager before or play than actually it's just not a normal routine, and it's not even the manager of the players. It's just the plate. You're losing. What happens when you come to the national ballpark? You're gonna lose a big bat. Or you're gonna put your big bat in a field near a sacrifice defense. So we call that the Vladimir Guerrero slash 2010 world serious. That's what we call that. Yeah, That's exactly what it is. You know? I mean, David Ortiz. I mean, you always have good first, you're like, do that. But it does the getting there. You know, Like, you know, just they just thought that way, you know, like It just was one of those people. When Ugo American Lee do think, though, that there should still be. We still play our game. We have an extra hitter. It's really good. Not really, though because of the venture. A lot of times your strategizing the pitch a certain way, you know. Oh, you're pitching a certain way to like, Okay, I've got a I'm going to keep this guy in the game. I'm gonna force them to pull this hitter out. Or I'm gonna be warming. Ha vea toe, force them to the side. If they're gonna leave this right, Ian, or put a pinch hitter Ed, and then they put a pensioner. I burn him. You don't say like there's so much strategy to that. And both used that a lot. Like if there was a bunch of lefties in a road any hobby, But for me, he would put me in because he would say, I don't really care if they put this lefty and I bring it Affeldt, and they're going to put a writing and I don't character faces, right. He's just fine. To force you guys to think a little bit more Where in America you don't have to think much, and and I I just feel that As a pitcher. You're trying. You're trying to picture I would pitch around guys knowing certain situations were in play. We couldn't do that in American league, you know, and it was different and you knew those guys in American Lee. I mean, they call softball League man. Those guys are all swinging for the fences. Three run homer. You know that in America internationally, For whatever reason, I felt like you could like. Mix and match pitching wise a little bit. They didn't have all Big Bopper because of the strategy. But man, I thought, What's the National League and everyone to go back to American League, So I really didn't love playing against American League team in their ballpark, Mediate Man. I've always been pretty good. They just can't get it. They just can't get it done. But man, those cats are always dangerous team to play. I thought when the giant plate of at their ballpark for me it was. I thought I felt like they played better against his there at their place. But Do you remember? I heard you and when you're talking about pitching, and obviously you don't want to, you know, throw bad pitches and then so it got me to thinking, Yeah. Pictures remember their pitches with remarkable accuracy, and I'm wondering for you. Do you remember? Any instances were you threw a really good pitch like you just thought that was it? I mean, that's exactly where I wanted it and the guy hit it out. Or do you remember a pitch? We're in a situation. You threw a pitch and it was just a brutal pitch. And you thought, Oh, we're in trouble here any their swing and miss or hit into a double play. Yeah. Uh, Politically 2040 world period, so play that got turn the double play that got turned on the panic, Crawford. That all supposed to be right there That all was artistically. It was a thinker, and they just kind of fun. But if you look at it that that little in that Paul could have been. Oh, look, I mean, it got hit pretty hard anyway. That's what panic. That's why that place stuff because that ball wasn't hit Stop. Oliver hit that ball pretty solid, but it just sunk, so he caught the top of the baseball, right. So I kind of got that. That's why I think so. But that pitch right through it. I was like, Oh, no. And then you're like, Oh, yes. You know, like that, Like you're like Lotus. I can't stand your shift. I hate shift, but they were shifting right there. That's what happened in that field for sure. You know there's a pitch Tio Goldsmith, the only homer in Boki Course Pokey and I hope he's listening. I'm still mad at him for it. Okay. This dude was over 10. All right off me. I mean, I mean, it's not like he hit well off me. And so we get in and came pitching and I come in for Cain and gold and I get it. I get a ground ball. We don't turn the double play and I gotta face Goldschmidt both she comes out and he says, Here's the deal. Guys this dude has been carrying. This team for a month. He's the only guy I get it done for him. Just picture out him. Don't don't without walking intentionally here, but there's two out and when I walk in, they just don't give amazing to hit. Throw it anywhere and he begin to change. Because his thought process was if I get him out, was a lefty on deck after that, start the inning, right? And Goldschmidt was over 10. So he was thinking, Look, you didn't see that well, but he's too hot right now. That will give me So I'm sitting there like a fastball way off the play ball curveball in the dirt. You know, Curveball in the dirt. I'm three out, right? The Buster. Call the fastball, But you see, I don't even hit. I'm pretty sure it was. In the batter's box. Not even on the chocolate lets a Goldsmith dives out in hit a homer. And I'm like I see it go the fence, and I'm like you've got to be freaking kidding me. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I said Yeah. I'd be freaking kidding me and and I looked over came and keep looking looking at me and he just shaking his head. Like every time you give us a shaking and I kind of look at him. I'm like I'm like, Okay, Nick came just looking at me trying not to be mad. Pulls his hat down basic shoved me. You know, I'm looking at him and his girlfriend going around like staring at cake. I want to say I'm sorry and well, look at me. So I'm super mad because I'm like that wasn't even freaking close man. It was not even close. We'll get the next gotta ground out right Copper to first or whatever. Ground out out of the come down of the bench. Came there kind of look over at him. A kind of plain looks over at me and I'm like Hey, man, I'm really sorry. He gets up and he watched five aces will talk about tomorrow. Greater love friend. So I go in. I go into the so I'm like other couples from my throne over the years. Yeah, man, That was so that was leaving. I don't know how you kept what I did that like whatever. So I'm pretty pissed about it. And then both checked me in at night, and he's like, how you doing? I'm fine. He's like, all right, even pitch and get it, so don't worry about it. I'm not worried about it that all of the clothes that was that's where I wanted. It was. It wasn't even close. So we pulled in the office the next day. So then both he pulled into the office. And get you in the principal's office. So we go in there and bust her sitting there, and I'm looking at Buster, and he's just kind of like, uh, I'm pretty sure I know it will be about But I'm like. Yeah, well, I got you did Don't worry about it. He's a guy. So we're sitting there and vote like a man like Didn't we had the meeting right? Like we had. Do not give him anything. I said boats. The ball is Eight inches off the dish. He's like it was in the air, like throw the term on the dirt, like, throw something. It was in the air We get to it is way too hot for a situation like that. I'm trying to get him to chase the throw Your split tow your curveball's and hopefully he gets aggressive.

LGBTQ community celebrates Supreme Court ruling on employment nondiscrimination cases

"Gerald Bostock joined a gay recreational softball league seven years ago, signing up for the HOTLANTA, Softball League his job in the Child Welfare Services Department for Clayton County. Georgia. He was fired for quote. Conduct unbecoming of county employ. That men he didn't have health insurance. He recovered from prostate cancer, but it set in motion illegal fight that led on Monday to a landmark decision from the supreme, court, which ruled six to three that the Civil Rights Act of nineteen, sixty four protects against discrimination based not just on race and gender, but also sexual orientation. And now Gerald's name will forever appear in constitutional law textbooks. After reading Justice Neal Gorsuch as majority opinion, validating his right not to be fired, simply because he was gay Gerald reflected on the journey from the den of his home. When I lost my job, it was my dream job, so imagine having. That, you went to every day and you enjoy doing it. the habits suddenly taken away from you because you decided to join a gay recreational Softball League I lost my income I mentioned that I had lost mine insurance while I was still recovering from prostate cancer I lost friends in relationships with with many colleagues. I had to sell my home in that community. So the Germans been difficult. The court ruling grouped three related cases involving employees who said they were fired because of their sexuality or gender identity. Gerald was the only plaintiff still alive to see the outcome Amy Stevens. A funeral director who was fired, because she was transgender, died last month of kidney failure after attending oral arguments in her case. Last Fall Donald Zara. A skydiving instructor who was fired because he was gay, died in twenty, fourteen, leaving his sister and partner to advance his case. Gerald, who's fifty-six plans to return to a trial court in Georgia to fight his case after all these years of legal roadblocks, he and his partner Andy toasted with champagne last night to celebrate the ruling, which he hopes will bring a little bit of sunshine. In some dark times. He told my colleague Samantha Schmidt that more work remains to be done. He wants Congress to pass the Equality Act which would enshrine nondiscrimination protections for lgbtq people in Employment Housing Credit Education public spaces and other realms of American life. The state of Georgia has also yet to pass a hate crime law. He, says joining the gay. Softball League was one of the best decisions he ever made. The arc of the moral universe is long. But it bends toward justice.

"This is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm very that was Kelly and I'm ari Shapiro outside the Supreme Court this morning the atmosphere veered from festive too fraught ahead of arguments in a major LGBT Q. case hundreds of demonstrators with rainbow flags as well as dozens of TV crews found themselves suddenly herded away by police when too suspicious packages were discovered early in the morning both proved to be the nine the argument before the justices however got intense as NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports the showdown involves a set of cases testing whether employers are free to fire workers because they're gay or transgender Gerald Bostock won awards for his work as the child welfare coordinator for Clayton county Georgia then he joined a gay recreational softball league within months I was fired for being gay I lost my my livelihood I lost my medical insurance and I was recovering from prostate cancer when this occurred it was devastating Amy Stevens after working for six years as a male funeral director in Michigan was fired two weeks after she told her boss she was transgender and would be coming to work as a woman Bostock and Stevens challenge their dismissals in court under the nineteen sixty four Civil Rights Act which bars employment discrimination quote based on sex in the Supreme Court today the retirement of justice Anthony Kennedy looms large Kennedy a Reagan appointee was the author of every major gay rights decision for nearly two decades his absence and the presence of two new trump appointees could very well determine how these cases are decided who wins and who loses just as Brett Kavanaugh who replaced Kennedy ask just one question though it was instead justice Neil Gorsuch the other trump appointee who was the focal point Gorsuch who's been adamant advocate for reading the text of a statute literally admitted today to a bit of a conundrum addressing ACLU lawyer Dave Cole Gorsuch said assume for a moment that I agree with you on the textual evidence but it's close it's very close shouldn't the justice take into consideration the massive social upheaval that would ensue from such a decision wouldn't it be better to let Congress do it lawyer call replied that the federal courts have been finding discrimination against transgender employees for twenty years and there's been no a peaceful dress codes and sex segregated bathrooms have not fallen he said there's been no tumbled Gorsuch would play both sides of the issue as the argument unfolded well the court's other conservatives generally seem to support the employer's position that the nineteen sixty four law does not protect gay and transgender employees just as a leader for instance noted the Congress in nineteen sixty four didn't have gay and transgender employees in mind at all if the court were to interpret this statute now to prohibit discrimination against gay and trans workers he said the court would be quote acting exactly like a legislature lawyer Pamela Carlin shot back that there were many kinds of discrimination Congress didn't specifically in vision in nineteen sixty four that the courts have consistently found to be covered by the broad words of the statute justice Ginsburg chimed in that sexual harassment was not even a legal concept in nineteen sixty four and yet the court decades ago founded to be prohibited contact under the nineteen sixty four law the game employees got more help from the courts other liberal justices justice prior suppose a Catholic ended you get married the employer fires the Catholic why he's not against Catholics but he is against inter marriage that argument prior suggested is much like the argument the firing a gay employee is not because of sex justice Kagan pointed to what she said was the simple test that the court is used in these cases for decades with the same thing that happened to you if you were a different sex or religion or race all categories of protected people under the statute just the sort of my work at what point does a court continue to permit invidious discrimination we can't deny that homosexuals are being fired merely for being who they are not because they're performing their jobs poorly knoll Francisco representing the trump administration replied that sex means whether you are male or female not whether you are gay or straight but just as Gorsuch suggested that if the employer who fired Bostick was given truth serum the reason he would likely give for firing Bassac was because he was a man who liked men it was one of the moments where such seems to side with gay employees but there were many more when he seemed to go the other way a decision is not expected until spring or early summer Nina Totenberg NPR news Washington for students thinking about college taking college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT that's a big part of the process most high schoolers know the drill you sit in a

"I thought I'd drop by last week. I do recall. Let's talk streets was talking there. So we're playing softball. We have one empire. Right. Because it's a it's a co edits a socially, you know. It's not supposed to be too. You know, we've noodle at always get one guy. There's always one guy. Yes. Usually on the other team this year. And that's probably why we're not winning any games are record is a one in five I believe, but this is not part of the idea at all day. I'm thinking about baseball, right? I'm thinking about you know, I'm watching the NBA playoffs. Tune. I'm thinking about like all the times we have to we have to sit aside while the the refs are looking at plays in their own little box, right talk as he'd Secaucus which is where they usually go to to a guy in a room with a bunch of monitored to figure it out, and you'll stop touching the Mike and his point there, you won't touch it again. My hat, and it wasn't lined up anymore. Pitching today is a way for maybe that unpire who's behind home plate to call that second base out faster and easier than he would normally because that's that's ninety feet away. There's some his got a call that play. Right. That double that double play or three or softball ego for the softball league. So today, I'm pitching is a little company called base being okay? And base beings our bags that laid up when you. Okay. So what you do when you're making that play at second. We have we have that that Nike, Ron technology. Okay. We got the chip in the shoe. Okay. And the chip. I like that very very unfair to me actually is. So when you touch that base with your shoe, it brings a certain color. Okay. But you're going to ask now like, well, how do you know, if the other guy is tagging the base? How is he going to be called out? He's got a separate chip in his shoe in the blue team and the red team that'll turn blue. If the blue team touches the bag I to get the out in touch red. If the red team touches the bag, I okay, the runner, averse the infielder. Here's though if you're out for space firms since crown ball shortstop net first basement, it's standing on the base waiting for the catch. Right. So, but the first base in this scenario doesn't matter we're talking about second base. Because once he's off the base. It's no longer illuminated. We'll save blue team is batting. Let's say blue team, bats. Man on first. So there's the base is currently blue because he stepping on it unless he's taking lead. Right. All right. So grad ball the shortstop ground ball shortstop. All the shortstop player has to do is throw to the second basement or touch second base right say the second baseman runs to second base. He stands on the bag. Right. And then the shortstop new saying because he doesn't have the ball already faces eliminated. Will. That's the chip is also inside the ball glove proprietary. Chip to chip in. Your the chip in the shoe. Fielder. Shipping off hasn't. The chip in his head where some. He's all he's looking. Another ten bucks and hire another umpire. Weekend. We can move this up to them to as well, David. Well, I don't think he I think there's a better way to do this system. I think aloud grown drone Pires is what it should be. I I don't think you're giving the right amount of respect. It deserves to be honest because I think look we already assume everyone's got the chip in the show, right? Yeah. I don't think it's asking that much more to have it in the bible. Nikes involved directly partnering with Nike and we've been in talks for a couple of weeks about the chip move 'cause they do some type a chip with them shoe with their running. They do the run chip. That's all track. Dave, and we're working with the bluetooth Dongo Finn and all that fun jazz too. So okay back to your scenario people. What if you side into the base headfirst in touch with their? That's fair. That's that's fair. We don't actually in softball. You're not allowed to dive headfirst. So we're not going to deal with that issue..

So it's harder for him to like be allowed to be gone all the time. But but but like for me, it's cool because you know, when Brad and our and those we played on teams together. So we were we were hanging out together. And we both wanted to travel a lot you deal with that. Because you are always on some ways television. Right. Somebody's radio. I you are a very busy person. It has a person who's been in a relationship for the majority of their career. I've founded not not tough. But I sometimes catch myself, especially this last year my life catch myself. I may man like how much is my relationship suffering right because of the amount of work and the joy that I do have within this industry. I don't travel as much on the regular that. It's. Problem. There was like a stretch last year where I had two months at twenty flights in two months, and I I was never home. And it was like overwhelming looking right. But the most of most of the time it's like a week or so in Miami every month or month and a half or two and then a couple of days here and there, and honestly, we're both really independent people. We spend a lot of time together we do a lot of things together. But we're both totally fine. Doing our own thing.

He'll be up in his office watching something working all being the living room watching something work. Sometimes we'll be in the same room watching something together. But it's not like when people complain. Like all my husband, always watches that. And I hate it. I can't you just go somewhere else something else because we do not like that. Where it's got to be every second. I'm glad you mentioned that part because people outside of this industry and outside of radio and TV especially in the sports industry. Go. Oh, yeah. You sweet gig. You know, you talk for four hours a day. Just go home. And I'm like, bro. You don't you? Don't wanna talk right for at least forty minutes. I'm like buffer zone with this. I get up on a normal day at five thirty in the morning consume everything I have to consume get ready for his show, you do that show.

Organizers sets about finding a venue and trying to raise funds, but it wasn't all plain sailing. We have to overcome people giving us the use of the facility so that we can have different sports there with a gay community. We had to overcome any kind of separatism that men might have had with women are just weeks before the first games got underway. They were hit by a lawsuit from the United States Olympics committee. They insisted on us causing out and taking off the word Olympic on everything. We had made posters pens. So we had volunteers on our offices with pens and wideout crossing out the word Olympic from everything. Matter of fact, the metals where the hardest one we already had them all printed up. It was Galen pa- games. And then we have to catch it and take off the word Olympic, and we fought that all the way to the supreme court. So as far as overcoming all we made headlines, right? But not the ones that we wanted at the time despite the last minute changes the games went ahead is scheduled on the twenty eighth of August nineteen eighty-two..

"Dot com. Twenty-five to diamonds wreck live line, we go. We find Frazier Sitel from emerald partners of of course. Frazier. Well, known as an author the practice of public relations, idea wise, how to transform your ideas, also rethinking reputation Frazier. Is it true? You also wants a spokesperson for the Rockefeller family. Yes. That's correct. David Rockville, I worked at the chase Bank where David rapport the chairman for many years, and I work with him. And then I was fortunate enough to be spokesman for him for decades, absolutely brilliant. I see and hear you all over the place this morning going to kind of draw down on Nike, Colin Kaepernick, the new campaign. There's a lot of push back initially on this. But you know, Nike is is thirty years. They've been doing the just do it campaign. They don't care about initial. They look at long-term. So long term. Do you think they're gonna come out smelling like a rose on this deal? Yeah. That's a very very. Perceptive observation Joel most companies abhor controversy, they run away from it Nike embraces it. They always have been edgy. They wanna be edgy. They wanna be abrasive. They wanna have buzzed. They wanna have people talking about them. So this was clearly a calculated risk for them. They knew what they were doing their customers are teenagers and young athletes and the NFL and NBA players themselves who generally support capper neck. So so this was a real calculated risk. It's one of those things to where it almost seems like they're kind of in the president's face. It almost seems like they're in the military's face to a degree. I mean, when you say sacrifice everything a lot of people go to the military, but I've seen social media posts from people that are in the military. It's like he's right. We fight. So guys, I can can say what they want. That's what makes America. Great. Yes. And and night, he understood that they went into this with their eyes open. They understood that a lot of people. People were going to be infuriated by supporting capper, Nick. Because a lot of people don't like cabernet. They don't like what he did. Obviously, he's not nearly as heroic as they say in the ad as as the people you talk about in the armed forces and the police, but Nike understood that they knew they were gonna alienate them they knew that people are gonna burn their shoes. I personally have retrieved. My Chuck Taylor converse sneakers when I'm awarded the MVP awarded the almond softball league dinner, but Nike knew that starting out. They went into this with their eyes open. So if you Frazier are consulting someone if you're talking about branding and marketing, and the idea that the only thing worse than them talking about use them not talking about you. What is the nuance of this because there are people that know how to bring outrage, but they don't know how to turn it into dollars and cents in our capitalist society. So what is it about Nike? They can do this. But they. Still turn it into dollars across the counter. Well, they support a lot of charities. You know, Phil Knight who started Nike was Republican. So they balance their act. I don't think you're gonna see a lot of ads with cabernet. They've made their point. Now, the real loser in this thing. Once again, of course, is the NFL because NFL sad for the NFL has signed a long term deal with Nike, and if they don't like capper Nick, and neither is you say does the president. So this will only exacerbate the NFL's problem with his fans and with the president. So it's a lose lose for the National Football League. Always great always interesting Frazier. I appreciate the time very much Frazier. Sitel you can pick up his books. You can follow him emerald partners. He's just one of those guys at right down the line. That knows what's going on eight..

I shine the light up against a bright wall, and so it China back at us rather than just got some plants that are being well lit from the back. And so I found that I think in the same way, I actually compare athletes to musicians a lot in that. I think we understand that musicians are kinda like angsty and so that's why they found music a lot of athletes, like smarter ones who are not just like I'm Mike trout and I hit home runs probably founded as a way to like combat some sort of feeling a little off or whatever. And that was true for me. I just, I love the feeling of peace that I got from being on the basketball court. It also allowed me when I was playing games to put aside the reasonable studious kid. I was and just lose my shit and just slam dunks. Slam slam dunks but slam dunks. Yeah, slam dunks. So just like I think behave in that beastie away that is not encouraged by the world and which was like inside of me, but I didn't feel how I could connect that to the outside world. Right the right way. My problem with not my problem with sports, but. Sports. As a kid. I didn't fit in in school and I was picked on and I tried desperately to do the sport stuff because it was like, that's what you do. I'm from a small town. So everyone joined the softball league. You know, the mini whatever was called when you're little and then everyone did the soccer and everyone did. And so it felt so wrong for me. And it's interesting when you are who you are from the get-go and I, I hate group activities. I hate groups of people and I would be like eight years old being like I go the frigging group of people all these idiots. I gotta I gotta try to fit in all these people and I actually wasn't terribly unathletic I, I was, I choked a lot. I choked now I chip and I'm not being gross. I just, you know, when something's right there, I always fuck up and I've been doing that since I was a kid. So I wasn't the worst athletically, but I also would just choke if the goal was right there, I'd find some. To screw screwed up. But I found that the kids and I'm extra better, but I found the kids that played sports that were girls to be awful human beings. And so I'm not anti sports. I'm not like this, like, you know, fuck football and like so stupid. 'cause I actually, I'm a huge football fan. I loved the Buffalo Bills. I'm diehard bills fan. But when it comes to kids and sports, I have such a bad taste in my mouth because the coaches were the parents that were the cool parents in town, and my parents weren't the cool parents. And so I was benched even though I wasn't the worst player and so I became extra bitter against sports. Well, yeah, I think it. Sports are problematic in that it does kind of encourage. That be steel behavior that I was talking about when you multiply times hormones and peer pressure, it can lead to like people acting like Dicks, right? Especially when they're seventeen or eighteen or nineteen years old or five or six or seven, or eight or ten or eleven or twelve. And I think we also, I don't know if this is an American thing exactly. But like we tend to emphasize team sports which could be construed as good, but we don't talk a lot about like tennis or golf or things where you could just express this muscle without having to be in a group right? Like we don't. We don't train that ever seen the movie grease. Sure. Okay. Okay, great. Sometimes people haven't seen grease and I go, what are you seeing grease on my butt. Danny Zuko. John Travolta wants to show off for sandy. So he like goes out for sports teams, like how about an individual's for because it was just like punching guys until we ended up doing track. Yeah. And I mean, I don't think on track. End up doing track, but I hated it because then the pressure that I felt when the gun went off and all of a sudden I'm racing against them Astles that I didn't want to be on a team within the first place..

"Straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. So I'll said, so the guest we're efforting is right Thompson, who has a phenomenal piece in ESPN the magazine this week about Dale Murphy and how there's this whole generation, particularly in the southeast who believes domer- for should be in the hall of fame. The baseball hall of fame induction ceremony is Sunday. It'll be Jack Morris, Alan Trammell Vladimir Guerrero who mentioned earlier who would be wiffle ball player. Jim Thome who'd had a can o Jim Thome e who should be on everyone's all time. Looks like you should be on your softball league team Griffin, rip Chipper Jones. And Trevor Hoffman. And we're in the funny Marty when you get to certain age, it's like the guys you watch their entire career another. Yeah, it makes me feel really old. Like what those guys are going in. The hall of fame, right? Trevor Hoffman was the I was he liked the first real closer. I guess maybe Dennis Eckersley might have been the first real closer, but Hoffman was at the guy that I remember that came in and just therm nothing but smoke. Yeah, and but then like got crafty and he's of the group. He's probably the most is numbers are crazy, but of the group. He's the one that people seem to have the most reservations about, but he was there man like there was who else were the lease? Myth lease myth hall of fame, John rocker, John rocker. John rocker lasted a second, wasn't he closer though? He was starter was who's closer goose Gossage hit Googlers. Goose was the first goose was the first one of my life that was just was like just came. Just came in throwing smoke and. Yeah, but those closers were the best, but then but then you had the guys that were like great and then weren't so great. Like Bruce, Bruce suitor closer, Billy Wagner. Billy Wagner was the man son? Yeah, Billy Wagner grew up near me. He's from tazewell Virginia. Went to Fareham college. The little teeny, tiny Fareham college, of course, Moran Rivera, but goose was the one hour reduces the one that came along and I thought and then other ones, though there's some other ones that are scaping me right now that. When unique personalities when we look like maybe not kids. But as we were getting on towards high school college, they were some guys, I'll think of it as we go. I'm still working on joslin. Trying to think. Francisco rodriguez. I mean lease myth, I love Lee Smith lease. Myth is a really good call man. He's tall. Yeah, right. Eckersley was the guy probably though. Yeah, see. I'm so old armor when he was was a decent starter, but. Why didn't he? Yeah, you break. I want to Braise about small malts basically two different careers, which is wise in the hall of fame so. So bring up del Murphy because of the peace right Thompson road and full disclosure, I'm sitting in my office right now with a framed portrait of del Murphy, like standing in front of the American flag, holding his golden glove. And so, yeah, if you grew up in the part of the world we did and this is the super station era. And I, I knew so much about the cubs and the Braves, both because you watch them on television every day. You watch cubs in the morning. Watch brazen night. I went to a cubs cubs Braves game one time with the church youth groups that with girl, and I thought she would be impressed at my overwhelming knowledge of both teams and all scare. I mean, because if you watch both of those teams every single day all summer long, you know, every summer of youth it became will you know when Rafael Ramirez the plate and I'm going well, you know, he really struggles on so. And so or about Bob Horner. Yeah. Bob Horner, Jeff, Treadway Jeff Treadway. Wow. Cam Zane Smith?.
