Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955

"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained

Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'

"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

The Incredible True Story of Squanto

"In 1608 before any ships before any people settled in what's now Massachusetts, I never knew this, because we all know that the Mayflower landed there in 1620. Chris, you knew that? I did at one point in my life. Right. So 1620 is when the pilgrims land at Plymouth. Sorry. But I always assumed growing up that that's the first time that anybody came to like what's Massachusetts. But I found out that's not the case. And the story of squanto, which I'm going to tell right now, which just wait, wait till you hear this. It starts in 1608, and it turns out that English trading ships would travel from Europe from England to Iceland, Greenland make their way down Nova Scotia all the way down and they would trade with the natives. Now I never knew that. So the natives were familiar with English sailors coming and trading and giving them knives and pots and pans and they would give them pelts and whatever. And they would trade. I never knew this. Well, in 1608, a group, a group, a ship led by a captain hunt lands or drops anchor off of what is today Plymouth Massachusetts. And the braves come down to the shore to trade with them as they've done before. Well, just so happens that this captain hunt was a bad man, and instead of trading with the braves, they whack them over the head, put them in the long boat, take them out to the ship, throw them in the hold, sail to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. This is 1608, one of the braves was a 12 year old. Boy named tisquantum. Now this is true story. This is all documented. I've done the research. Others have done the research. It's true. So he has bought by some kindly friars, who seemed to treat him well. Teach him the Christian religion, and this is the part that we'll never know how this happened. But they arrange for him to be freed and to travel to London. Now imagine from malaga Spain to London. So this is an Indian from what is today Massachusetts, a Native American, a patuxent, makes its way to London with the idea, and this is where it's crazy of getting back across the Atlantic to go back home. I know. It's like being on the moon and saying, so when's the next ship going back? There's no next ship going back. What are you talking about? But I guess the idea was not insane. He worked in London from what is it around 1612, 1613 for four or 5 years with a family called slany. This is all documented. This Indian named squanto to squantum learns the English language. He's there when he's there when Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, we're talking Shakespeare is writing his play. So he's in London. This Massachusetts Indian, and this is years before the pilgrims ever get to Plymouth rock, crazy, right? In 1618, I believe 1619, a ship is found. For him to go back to his home. And he's going to translate obviously because he knows the language. He's going to be on the ship working with these English as they're stopping, you know, and he's going to be doing the translating and so on and so forth. So somehow he gets passage on a ship. The ship ends up having to spend the winter in I can't remember if it was Iceland or Greenland. It's in my book. Where does it say? Newfoundland now, hold on a second. Anyway, the point is that it took them quite a while to get there, right? So they basically, no, it was Newfoundland. Sorry. They spend the winter in Newfoundland. And then the next spring, this is like 1619, they bring him to what's now the coast of Massachusetts drop him off. Thank you very much. Goodbye. This sounds crazy, right? This is document. This is a true story. So a year plus before the pilgrims land. This Indian has made the journey from Plymouth to Spain to London, spans 5 years London, learns the English language, learns the ways the English, and then ends up back where he started. He finds his way on foot to the village, which is right where Plymouth is today, right? Village where his Indian, where his family is, they have all been wiped out. In ten years, he's dreamed about getting home, he's dreamed about returning. He's dreamed for ten years. He's thought in his mind of doing the impossible to get all the way back

The Committee to Unleash Prosperity's Phil Kerpen on the Inhumanity of America's Child Masking Policies

"Welcome back to one on one with the cofounder of the committee to unleash prosperity, Phil cur pin. Phil, you've been very, very charitable to the interpretations of certain so called health policies coming out of the federal government. Does the charitable interpretation is it plausible? Can it be extended over every aspect and I'll focus on one right now? So maybe herd immunity was they want to encourage people not to protect themselves what have you. But when it comes to children, I find it very difficult to see a charitable interpretation for anything we've seen. You've mentioned it yourself. The incredibly low figures. Of children who aren't sick with something else, the conclusion is if you look at the statistics, they're basically immune. They don't catch it or if they do, they don't even realize it, and they get over it. So kids are not vulnerable. Instead, they have to wear masks everywhere on planes in schools. I walk past this little pre-K every morning. Drives me insane. The kids are outside in the sandpit playing with bloody marks on its child abuse. And now we have the. Well, we've got the new vaccines and you can do it to 5 year olds next. This is science denial. They say conservatives in our science. But if they're basically immune, then why are we asking why are we vaccinating? Is there thusly is there a charitable interpretation for what the CDC will walensky what Fauci? What school administrators are doing? I don't really have a charitable interpretation on that. I think it's been outrageous. Look, I mean, you know, it's not zero risk for children, nothing in this world is, but it is normal. Children, it is no dangerous for children than any other respiratory virus. And so if we are going to subject children to this disruption to all of these interventions, then logically they would be permanent. There's no luck. There's no logical endpoint because they were never at any more than normal risk. And we've been much worse than this regard than the vast majority of the world. There are some other countries that mask down to age 6, which I think is outrageous. Countries like France and Italy and Spain go down to age 6. Nobody goes down to H two, except us, maybe Japan and Korea. But no one no one in the

They may have spent wondering whether the government in question still has all marbles in one sock when a given government starts picking on writers and novelists and artists of any description. It is announcing itself as tyrannical foolish and deranged. Such is the unhappy if altogether unsurprising point arrived at by the regime of daniel ortega president of nicaragua as demonstrated by its issue of a warrant for the arrest of sergio ramirez.

April, 1779: Spain Enters the War

"April seventeen seventy nine. France and spain signed the treaty of iran. Wes which effectively drew spain into the war. With britain for the past couple of centuries spain had been francis traditional ally and britain's traditional enemy while spain did not share francis enthusiasm for american liberty. It did harbor grudges against britain and welcomed an opportunity to settle some of them by entering the war in the late seventeen. Hundreds spain was near the height of its worldwide empire. Spain of course had been their first european power to colonize the americas following christopher columbus's revelation that an entire western hemisphere existed and was available to be conquered after columbus returned from his first voyage. Spain claimed sovereignty over the entire western hemisphere. It did so. Even though columbus only had limited information about a few islands in the caribbean about a year after columbus's return spain and portugal sign the treaty of tour to see us which essentially recognize spain's claims to all lands west of vertical line drawn through the atlantic ocean the treaty was designed to recognize portugal's claims to some islands in the atlantic while seating to spain all the unknown lands further west in fact unknown to both parties at the time. The line seated. What is today the eastern part of brazil to the portuguese which is why brazil became a portuguese colony. In truth though when the vast size of north and south america came to be understood there was no way. Spain would be able to occupy or defend its vast claims to the hemisphere britain france. The netherlands and other european powers were not parties to the treaty and did not recognize. Spanish claims to the entire western hemisphere but spain was the first to establish a colonial empire for more than a century. Spain conquered most of south and central america as well as many caribbean islands. It was not until the early seventeenth century that other european powers seriously began to consider american colonies of their own

The Domestication of the Potato

"How many foods that we eat today. All around the world simply didn't exist in the old world of africa asia and europe corn chocolate vanilla peppers green beans pumpkins. Tomatoes and squash are all foods that were completely unknown to the peoples of the old world. Perhaps the most important neural food. However was the humble potato. The potato was originally native to south. America it was first domesticated impro- anywheres from five thousand ten thousand years ago. It's really hard to tell because potatoes aren't very well preserved in the archaeological record. But we know that they were being grown. Probably when studies were first being built in mesopotamia specifically they were probably first domesticated around the area of lake titicaca high in the andes mountains. The first confirmed evidence in the archaeological record comes from the year. Thousand five hundred. You're the coastal city of n con just north of lima peru. The potato was the primary food stuff for the incan empire. Potatoes cooked by ancient peruvians. We're not too dissimilar to how they're cook today. They were baked or boiled and might have been mashed. Potato is pretty much have to be cooked in order for the starches in them to be digestible by humans. Some potato varieties had toxic compounds that required soaking and clay and water to leach out the toxic substances one popular way of processing potatoes in the andes was to make this involved repeatedly leaving them outside to freeze and then thawing them. The next day this freeze drying would go on for three to five nights then they would be laid out and stomped on to remove any remaining water. The result would be white. Rock looking thing not too dissimilar from appealed potato but because it was dehydrated it could last for years. Potatoes had been domesticated all the way down the andes mountains to southern patagonia. In what is today chile prior to the arrival of europeans. The first spanish explorers to the region led by pizarro in fifteen thirty to recognize the value of the potato but when they brought them back to europe it was mostly for consumption by the south american people they brought back with them supposedly and i know this because i actually paid a visit. The first place in europe to grow potatoes was the garden at the monastery in guadalupe spain. It was a place that queen isabella frequently visited.

"My friends and relatives visit here to not do that. Space on an economic decision which is to make any difference to them because they were never going to property. Anyway if you find exact right property and this is exactly what you need. Don't miss out on ended up. Buying something isn't right and this isn't exactly what you wanted. You know just because you're waiting for the process to go down. That's to me the wrong decision hank about whether you're in it for short medium term or the long term really important think about in terms of value of property. And wha what is going to do. Let's talk about another. How can i put nightmare situation. Possibly brexit for the listeners from the u. k. is brexit something to be worried about for buying in spain. He said the be would people didn't want say i. We've we've done the c word so we might be what news me thinking. I was going to be the not one on this podcast again. It's such an interesting scenario. What i have seen spoken. Nationally and locally are for example by on the head of and lucia and also my own local men is that you know this very simple view that spain didn't offer brexit didn't initiate exit. And they don't once oh hold any animosity was brits. They have a long long relationship with the uk with uk. Taurus and uk investors and. They don't want anything to change as much as possible. Obviously they're still within the eu but the actual the outlook and dave approach that feed into was brits down essentially the same effectively. They are going to help to keep things as normal as possible. And i think they're going to try to estimate. Sure that as little as possible changes you can see. The spanish government is doing as much as they can to minimize the impact or any negative impacts. Brexit has on their relationship with the brits who will come out here as always so comp to spain is as investors other talking about breakdown of the costs of buying a property in spain hidden cost when we watched that tv program. A place in the sun and the like. Oh you can get this lovely little villa for two hundred and fifty thousand euros but you know. They didn't talk about all of the other little hidden costs and taxes and legal fees thing. Could you just break it down for us. In layman's terms. You see the ticket price of our house. What else are you going to have to pay more or less. How much would it be crazy documentary. A few years ago and the document entitled why. It's impossible for you to pay ten percent closing costs when you buy property in spain. Start off by saying the closing costs you. The taxes in additional arm cost that you pay over in about the actual purchase. Price of a property are -standingly high When i arrived here in spain the two thousand six it was fifteen percent. Which is what you would budget. So i always use the simplest of numbers so if you're buying the property for one hundred thousand euros and that was the price of the property.

"1978 new constitution just briefly about that. It was a very all-encompassing Constitution. Well kind of form did that Constitution too? Well, it was the first time Spain and had a constitution and has had quite a lot of them in if you go back over the centuries. That's the 6-volt 1812. Yeah, there was that was drawn up by all the major parties. This is the main important Point unlike the other constitutions, which would probably drawn up by the the party in power and not much else is drawn up by the Alianza popular the Socialists and Communists. There was a cattle out who represented the catalans and the Basques so long it was a constitution designed to be accepted by everyone except the extreme right? Which still supported Franco the counter Benadryl off. Except for the extreme left to the left of the Communist party, which also fought that you know, so democracy was a sham. It's was designed to give Spain vehicle stability which all these years on what since 2015 we've had four elections. So maybe and this gets it's not worth going into this but maybe on some points. It has not been able to give political stability that it hoped to have given it was modeled. I think to some extent on the violin Republic Constitution and maybe a little bit on the box again Constitution. It has a few strange things like which still cause annoyance if not anger among some people I'm speaking on for example how the Catholic church is named in the Constitution where yes, we are setting up a non confessional State unlike the Franco state which was a eminently Catholic stayed off. In the Constitution, although it says that Spain will be a non-professional state. It's still has a sentence on the Catholic Church as kind of being the sort of historical religion of the country and Ed that may explain why even today when you do your tax return there are two boxes. You can take a box to give a certain certain amount to the Catholic church, or you could take a box not to go to the Catholic church, but to go to sort of ngos and all that kind of stuff. Yeah, and many people are squirrel wise in there a box for partisans wise and their books and Muslims wise in their box were Jews true that's been talked about a lot and something I found very curious the first time I saw that on a tax declaration form. Yeah, so we are not not as non-professional as far as as for example, you see the Catholic Church here is still influential in education and in you know matters of family values as they call it, you know, I mean some of the demonstrations have been dead. Here are ostensibly or not organized by the church in one way or another we'll never be allowed in France. Another big thing to come out. The Constitution was the creation of the autonomous braking autonomous communities, which I just wanted to touch on, you know, after a very centralized State under Franco about this Devolution known as Cafe para todos Cafe for all what do you know? Why was it called that I definitely urge that expression except presumably it would make it means that you all going to get the same kind of coffee. Yeah, which actually not the case know because the best country is a pecking order the best country has got pretty well full autonomy. I mean, it has its own taxes. It has its own police force teaching English language in schools of people wanted and lots of other things. It is by far the most autonomous region in Spain. If not in most of Europe and then you have a sort of order that goes down from that and as you know, the catalans would like to have what the bass. And if not Independence, so it was a way of diffusing in in the late seventies when that happened. I think I'd offer Suarez was sort of very concerned that things might get really out of hand and the best country which remember there was no terrorist movement in Catalonia. There was a terrorist movement in the Basque Country, which was extremely offensive to begin with. So I think this was seen as a way of defusing Basque tensions as it turned out it didn't diffuse a at all because at a regarded the 78 Constitution the Parliamentary monarchy and the Devolution of power to Regions as meaningless kind of wolf in sheep's clothing almost exactly they were pushing for independent best country song If not independent Marxist Basque country and it didn't go anywhere know enough for them. Yeah, but they were not ended until several decades later. So yep. The transition to democracy ultimately successful. You would agree. Yep. I agree. I mean what can pick holes it's very easy from today to pick holes in something happened forty years ago. So which is I get rather angry when they put Amos people start talking about L recommend. There's a dent on the 78 regime and of course regime for you and I English speakers and also fought Spanish has a certain connotation we do about regimes we tend to think they're sort of authoritarian. We don't call the UK regime or the they obviously with regards the Constitution as questionable and would like to change chunks of it. Personally. I think it's some things can be done. We mention a Catholic church, but basically I see no reason to open up the Constitution and start all over again. It's highly complex and demands referendums and elections and God knows what time I think of a part has been very low to Tinker around on the Constitution. I mean, it's one should remind us out that it's not something set in concrete. Although the political class tend to regard it as something set in concrete one massive there which doesn't get talked about much these days is that if Prince Felipe including Leticia get run over by a bus tomorrow as the law stands neither the daughters can take over because because the Constitution demands that it goes down to them mail are whether he's the oldest or not long, as you know, Phillippi was the youngest of three children and one car was not the oldest but he was the mail so obviously at some point unless they think that Felipe's Immortal they may have to do something about something that's a minor issue. But even that even that they've been loath to do because I think they feel well if we open it for that then people are going to say, okay you're opening it says it off.

"There was Gordon Martin and then BBC correspondent was sitting in a room somewhere. I think he thought the room father was in a hotel and he had a microphone in his hand fit like the one you're holding and he was standing close to a window and obviously some policemen noticed him from Down Below in the street and pointed his rifle with a rubber bullet in it and fired it which not only smashed the window, but it's smashed the glass. That's Gordon had in his hands. He was holding a microphone on the glass probably whiskey or something that then gave rise to a place. Test whoever handled in the protesters greeted by a policeman who said something along the lines of you, press come out of my nose likes not. So anyway that didn't get very far off incredible about the electrical first time since February nineteen thirty-six, which is how many political parties r7070 political parties around 4,000 candidates or vying for a song about 350 seats in the parlament. It may even be more than $70. Anyway seventy s a huge amount. We have 16 parties represented in Parliament today. That's also a lot but seventy wrong thing, but the really only a handful of it that counted interestingly the party that supported Franco policies and principles outright gained less than 1% of the vote in that election and 77. He's over the UCD, which was hastily put-together. It was six and a very loose Alliance of 16 disparate off. Parties liberals Christian democrats social Democrats conservatives all that kind of major importance as well put together. Basically, it's a sort of party mm oversee the transition. I think it was probably an idea to some extent of Juan Carlos that he wasn't quite sure who was going to win the elections, you know, what would have happened if the aliens took one which is the popular party today today. Would they have he wanted Suarez to continue Suarez realized that if you continue to have a party is very quickly put together shortly before the elections that was 77 and eighty-three was dissolved. They got a hundred sixty five seats in nineteen seventy-seven and they got 11 seats in nineteen eighty-two which were the long run by the Socialists under the slogan para el Cambio for change, which was you know, hit very well what Spaniards majority of spending birth What would happen if aliens are popular one, you know, which which was basically, you know revamp Frank Lewis to some extent pretending that they were Democrats standing themselves. It didn't change you CD. I think had a short life and you know, it was designed to have a short life almost. The other incredible thing about that election is that there would have been people voting that have never voted before in their life a whole generation of Spanish had never voted before I love is worth living in Madrid also have a house in a Pueblito of the province Quang kokor buendia and during that election. I guided a t from ITN news. They said they said oh where we don't want to fill them and do where can we go to get a feeling of their real Spain? So I said, well, you know, I know this really is quite well cuz I have a house there with bought it the year before and Seventy-Six. Yes, Daniel for a Honda. So we went there. This is the village that had no paved streets wage. No running water. There was one phone which was Run for the daughter of a guy ran a bar. Had to book a call go up there. There was no school at that time and off the film crew decided to fill part of it in the main bath the bar Obispo and to the horror of the Spanish Embassy in London because they complained about page news item like a five minute news item. Yeah. Well Adolphus was was giving his televised address on the eve of the election idioma espanol, normally service David a political question a lot. Of course the peasants in the bar were all playing cards and drinking and not guys had their backs to the TV and were not listening to Donald office thinking Which is far as the Spanish the damn Spanish Ambassador in London was concerned was kind of you know, I sort of you know wage Why were we filming this? This wasn't you know, the real Spain? Why what we filming in Madrid or somewhere and we felt very much. It was a real Spain cuz as you've said many of these people have never voted before and their lives the owner of that bar was empty Obispo is a family Biz who later became the mayor of the village many years later. I asked her which party he was going to know more or less the same as I am. Yeah, which part he was going to vote for and he said, oh the partido Vino Tinto the red wine party every bit of like saying they had no idea who was going to vote for a tall is the bar still there an office is closed. He's retired last year and his son doesn't want to take it over it's closed incidentally one cuz I've it's real I mentioned the village of its what it it's shortages that same thing is today, you know, we have our paved streets. We have a running water. We have electricity which works not like before whatever time there's a Thunderclap the lights would go up anyone wants to help once a phone has a dog. And we have brought bad times have changed. Yes it most moment. It has be my micro micro Cosmos of the changes in space. I took me to talk a bit about the back to forget the back to the Oviedo. There was consensus and the reformist right and the left and there was this unspoken agreement for some time not to rake over the past and then in nineteen seventy-seven there was a law passed the amnesty law to Iraq and that do you think that that packed worked at the time keeping those skeletons firmly in the closet? Yeah very much. So, I think it's been miss misunderstood or misinterpreted that Pat. It wasn't although it's called in English two packs of forgetting. It wasn't in the sense that everyone was expect to forget all the nasty things that happened in the past. Basically, it was a pact that the political parties in The crucial final years of the seventies were not going to make political Capital out of whichever side. They've been off during the Civil War for pretty obvious reasons. So so I think that was the key issue. It didn't mean which some people have interpreted as meaning you couldn't write about the past month on the Franco final years there were plenty of books coming out which were not favorable to Franco. Georgia was home at the Catalunya came out sometime before Franco died. I think when I think one little box is cut out, I don't know which part is it was the president of the think tank that I worked for the elcano Institute Espinosa did his Doctorate on a man call home and bust a row who was a socialist and the man who tried to negotiate a kind of truce with Franco in the very very final weeks of the Civil War. That didn't suck. And then when the war was over he was arrested and he died in prison. Well Amedeo wrote his Doctorate on that very man, and nothing happened to him. So I just gave two examples to show that The Pact Factor they Oviedo even in nineteen seventy-seven left alone.

"But I wouldn't do that talking to Tim Kirkman at Spain and fit Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz won't wanna get of course, to the other people who were inducted, but looking at the very small relatively percentage for bonds, you know, to to to go up, and and what we've said before about how much you need to. Increase year by year in order to make it feel like there's a likelihood you're getting in does this sort of tell you that without a total sea change in public opinion over the next three years. Those guys aren't getting in the that's what I see from today. Now, things can change cheap mind. Edgar Martinez started at twenty five percent and ended at eighty five percent. So you can make push. But there's no baggage with Edgar like there are like there is what those other steroid guys. So in the end, it's a very tricky situation. But to make up sixteen percent of the vote in three years is very hard to do. And there is still a large faction of voters who say if you have a connection to PD's, no matter who you are. You're not getting so Tim when you look at this hall of fame class aside for Mariano getting one hundred percent of the vote. What else stands out to your mind that history will remember to make this particular class special? Well, Mike Messina should have been in his first year eligible for me pitches entire career in steroid era. He pitches entire career the American. League East a D H league. He pitched two-thirds of his games that tiny little ballpark in Baltimore and still one to seventy games with a winning percentage that only ten guys have ever matched with that many wins. That's how great he was one of the smartest players have been around and ROY halladay to go in on the first ballot. I thought was wonderful again over two hundred wins with a winning percentage that high like ten other guys have done that also and one of the great BULLDOGS ever. I wrote the story it's on dot com now, but they were gonna take him out of the game after eight innings, and no one takes ROY halladay out because he wants to finish and nobody wants to finish anymore. But he did so Charlie manual and rich dooby the pitching coach and the manager had their hands out to shake his hand and say, thanks for a great eight innings. We're going to bring Brad lidge in and Halliday walks. Right by them does not even acknowledge that. They're they're not one word said, there's no confrontation. There is not an argument and. Rich dooby looked at Charlie. It's a well. I'm not taking about. I'm not taking them out. So they let him pitch the ninth because they had so much respect. That's who ROY halladay was Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz at Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio talking Tim Kirk about the latest hall of fame class..
