Big look like the saints are going to set up shop in the dallas fort worth area.

"The book is an anecdotal biography. In part one where. I interviewed him on several different topics about muhammad ali about his newspaper career about baseball memories about how he was a jazz musician in harlem in new york in the early in the late nineteen forties. And how is failure as a musician and the way he like studying music kind of affected his writing how he saw the rhythm in the rhythm of music the space between notes that kind of affected how he writes. I talked to him about that. I talked to him about a number of things about rambling. Eddie robinson and yes. He wrote about these things in his own writings. But i wanna kinda fresh take and just megan delivering the questions to him. So that was kind of my approach for part one originally. I just had an idea of part one of a book and then Mentioned briefly if time permits identity part two of the book which is probably twenty five percent of the actual word. Count maybe thirty percent. I have to break it down. But i interviewed close to forty people including a few people that passed away. Some of them were his contemporaries other people very prominent in sports media. Today i'll give you some names here If i may michael dave anderson was a longtime columnist times pulitzer prize winner. I interviewed dave anderson. Dave kindred i mentioned about lee well ali and jerry and dave kindred. We're very close. The three of them and jerry green. I mentioned earlier. Are you aware of ira berkow the new york times.

So now that you've written the book and published it what's left or what's on the horizon for you. I think it's probably a better way to set in the near future. I'm trying to promote this e-book through programs like yours. I hope to kind of research the budget for what it might cost to self published. A paperback or find a company might like to have an interest in this book. I sorta wanted. Maybe this selfish. In my thinking. But i sorta wanted editorial control over the content where i kind of had a vision for what the book by be and i didn't necessarily want interference like cut this out. Cut out cut this out. I viewed it kind of as a project that might be something that sports fans might be interested in people that are interested in media in general and also maybe the target of a third audience.

Miami Marlins Outbreak Wreaks Havoc on M.L.B. Schedule
"Major league baseball season got underway last week. But so far it's been rough. More than half of the act of Miami Marlins players and several coaches from the team have tested positive for the Corona virus. As a result, Marlins games have been postponed through at least Sunday. But despite concerns over additional outbreaks, Major League Baseball officials have so far balked at the idea of canceling this truncated season altogether. Here's MLB commissioner Rob Manfred discussing the Marlin situation on ESPN on Monday. I don't put this in the nightmare category. I mean, obviously, we don't want any player. To get exposed. It's not a positive thing, but I don't see it as a nightmare. We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play. That's why we have the expanded rosters. That's why we have the pool off additional players. And we think we can keep people safe and continue to play. I've got J. McManus with me. Now she's the director of the Maris Center for Sports Communication and a sports columnist for the New York Daily News, Jane Great to have you with us. Oh, thanks for having me it. Rob Manfred, who We just heard MLB commissioner. There sounded pretty confident at least that he was going to be able to keep his player safe. But the Marlin situation sounds quite alarming. Tell us, you know how things have developed since the first cases were identified on the team. The proof is in front of him hasn't been able to keep his players safe. So the question is, what do they do now? The way that this developed was after a game in Sun on Sunday, where the Marlins were playing the Phillies before that game player had had tested positive for the Corona virus and the team of wanted to play that game anyway. And so I went ahead and played and of course, that Opens the door to exposure not just to the Marlins players, but also to the to the Phillies. And to anybody who's been working in that clubhouse. And so what you have, then is you know one test, turning into multiple tests in an outbreak and a team one of the 30 teams not being able to play going forward and quarantined in Philadelphia. Until they can figure out how to move this season forward

actually look at the Washington Walgreens only because of the running and a lot of larger like kind of minding your time through a middle fourth inning facility for get to the good stuff one moment

"League Park in Nineteen Ninety Major League. Baseball owners looked at minor league baseball and said wait a second. Why are we putting so much of the bill? If they're having success and the two sides almost walked away from each other it got bad enough there every December. There's a winter meetings where everyone in baseball professional gets together and that year they actually went to their separate cities. They didn't they couldn't even get together. Cooler heads prevailed and a deal was reached and that kind of led to. I would say almost thirty years of detente. It really hasn't been a contentious argument until we get to here in twenty four all right so let's set the scene for what happened ball on the one hand. Minor League teams had a pretty good two thousand eighteen season. Attendance was up spirits. Were High Right. Yes absolutely on the other hand. Federal Appeals Court allowed. A class action lawsuit that alleges that Minor League players are being paid less than minimum wage. And this could cost Major League baseball quite a lot of money right. Oh absolutely and there's in essence a minor league player right now has to show up in February or early March. They may get paid from June to September even though they're required to be there from February to maybe October major league. Baseball is facing some potential for You Know Court liability there and major league. Baseball has already come out and said for next year that they are raising salaries For Minor League players. They have said one of the reasons that they want to cut. The number of teams is the idea that would allow them to pay those remaining players more than they do under the current system and that leads to the proposal. Mlb made in October in a nutshell. What would that proposal to Major League? Baseball proposal was going to go from one hundred and sixty to one hundred twenty. That means that every major league teen would have four ticket buying clubs low a high a AA AAA as you might imagine the the reception from Minor League Baseball upon hearing the proposal to cut one fourth of their membership was we are strongly vehemently an utterly opposed to such a plan so both sides met at these winter meetings to talk about this. Describe that scene for me. I've been going to winter meetings for close to twenty years and I would describe it as probably the frostiest winter meetings that I've ever been a part of and to be honest at the winter meetings. There wasn't a whole lot of progress. Made what Minor League Baseball realized after. That was the the best hope of winning. This negotiation was to win the battle of public opinion and win the battle of political pressure. And so there was a pretty intensive lobbying campaign afterward where you saw. Us representatives from all around the country mayors governors all kind of trying to turn up the temperature put pressure on major league baseball to back away from this one twenty point then everything changed right right so then of course. The Corona virus forced teams to send players home from spring. Training Opening Day was postponed and even if Major League baseball returns without fans in the stands. Minor League teams likely won't so what does that leave these minor league clubs for revenue almost nothing. They'd had a normal off season. They had staffed up to be ready for what they thought was going to be a very successful season. They had bought all their allow their merchandise and all that they're going to sell this year and then right before the season starts where in the off season. You don't make almost anything. I mean the the minor league teams make their money. When people walk through the gates. They bought a ticket. They're gonNA buy a hat. They're going to buy a beer. They're going to buy a hotdog. All of that money just was turned off right before it started. So how did that change this conversation? It dramatically up ended it. I would say we went from having public pressure and political being. Mlb's strongest weapon in this negotiation and on both ends. The air almost immediately went out of the balloon. I there are bigger things going on in the country right now obviously not to diminish this. But they're just are and on top of that minor. League baseball is a sales driven. Business will not having that schedule not having that certainty when someone says to you. Are you really going to be here next year? That adds more difficulty and really adds more epidermis on the minor league side to get to a deal where there is no similar time pressure for Major League Baseball and now it looks like Mlb is going to get what it wants right. I mean there is no deal yet but there seems to now be much more of an acceptance on the minor league side that it is going to be a hundred twenty full season affiliated clubs but MLB is publicly professing to ensure that these cities that currently have affiliate baseball have baseball whether it's going to be an independent professional league or whether it's the Summer Wood Bat League where college players where they come to play in the summer so baseball can survive if you have a stadium and you have an operator who knows what they're doing. A lot of these cities baseball will survive. I don't want discount though. You are GonNa lose something because Vladimir Guerrero Juniors now playing for Toronto but it wasn't that many years ago that he was playing the Appalachian League and so any way around that league of of really small towns. You had the chance to see a guy who's going to be one of the biggest stars in baseball. That part's going to be taken away. And there is something that I- romanticize about that because it's formative of my baseball fandom so when Ted torn out. Gm of the Clinton Lumber kings tells the Des Moines Register that MLB is using the Cova nineteen crisis to force. These changes through. Is He right is he? Overstating it the way I've had to put to me is if you were trying to design a way to ensure that this plan went through. You couldn't do something much more effective than what the corona virus has done this happened. We're talking last October. It may be something like no. I'M GONNA fight to the last degree to save my team being affiliate baseball. Well if that owner gets to June of this year and they're looking at their balance sheet and there's a plan in this where they continue to have baseball going forward in an economically sustainable way and potentially there's compensation which may help to be honest. Pay Some of the sponsors and all that you aren't you owe money right now. That may sound a whole a whole lot. Different now because we've gone through an almost unimaginable circumstance..

Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur.

Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living.

Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or

"Sports columnist for the Toronto Star, welcome to the program. Thank you. So we'll get to Leonard in a moment. But first, we know that Toronto's had like several years of good, but not great teams. Can you talk about how people are talking about this? I don't know what the energy is like in the city. Interesting excitement has never been hired never, and this is a franchise with two and a half tickets almost failure. And even when the team was good. Seasons tended to end in humiliation James that this is something I don't think we ever seen in the city before you walk around the city now and you hear people talking about the raptors you can hear the sound of the celebration if your condo towers downtown, if you stand out on your balcony, they finally captured the city and I don't think the team has ever truly done that before now quite Leonard was traded to Toronto before the season. Right. And it was seen as a big gamble because Leonard, you know, is a free agent next year. He might be eyeing a team in southern California where he's from is there a sense that this is kind of now or never in terms of winning title. The funny thing is for most people, you might be able to look at this and say all this success, the way that the city has embraced him and team all of these things would naturally lead to Leonard being more inclined to resign in Toronto, and we just don't know the case because he's a famously Paik individual. Nobody knows. What you really want in life. Basketball teams early good that might not be enough. People are talking about him as being one of the greats. Right. You're hearing, like Michael Jordan comparison being thrown around. Can he really carry the team to a title against the warriors, though? I don't think so. That people do is that defensively this rafters team is as good as anybody in basketball right now. It's a team with I. Attila the intelligence offer Rossio defensively, but to beat the Golden State Warriors, they're gonna need more guys to make shots offense Leonard is great. Need more than one great player to win in any playoff series? Much less against a championship doors. The NBA has pushed for expansion north for decades. But is the rest of Canada at all interested in this. I mean is this candidacy? This is someone who is from Vancouver, who was a grizzlies partial season ticket holder, and then watch them leave. So. Yeah. Toronto and Canada are two separate things. We've got about seven million within the general area of Toronto out of thirty five or thirty six million people in the country. It's the mega city and it's different. Ethnically culturally financially to the rest of Canada and basketball's. Does run along those lines in that it is very much a Toronto team? But this is the first time I feel like and it's still you can tell a little bit from television ratings. But the team seems to be crossing into the bloodstream of the rest of the country. What happens when you win? When you make it into a cultural curiosity. In addition to being a sporting, and does it help to have someone like Drake courtside? Think for some people that does power celebrity is something that is immensely, powerful, and he's someone that just adds to the level of attention. That's happening here. This is going to be the first championship series for a major sport in Canada, in the internet era. And every bit of neurology helps and Drake is a part of that Bruce Arthur's sports columnist for the Toronto Star. Thank you for talking about the raptors with us and best of luck. Thank you.

Being a Coach's Wife: A Blessing and a Curse
"In you, come in contact with a lot of coaches, obviously in this profession, and there are some. Businesses where you can separate where you can have a career your wife can have a career, and yeah, they they may intersect at Christmas parties or occasionally. But but they are not really. They do not run. Contemporaneous -ly to one another. Where if you're the wife of a coach there's nearly. Yeah. You you can't just act like, you don't know. What I mean, you are you're part of the team. And that's that's you know, you always hear that phrase, and some people may be offended by in terms of a great coaches wife, but you understand it and you live and die. What what happens? Your family or your system coaches. They're just they're all into just as much as your system. Coach it may it's a tough stuff and now again athletes can go back to my life and athletic. I were the reason I went from point a to point b in every step of my life. So it has been very warning for me going through that process. But I did see I was at a crossroads, and that's why just I chose that the family over that lifestyle in that profession in and I'm glad I did looking back. I do miss it. Just like every coach just like every player miss when they retire. But what's best for your family has to take prison over there now, and that was a sensitive interview listened to Seth because I I know people that are close to say, and and they know how tough that for gene, Texas wish was on him and his family. Yeah. In his his last year got a little bit off the rails. As you remember. And sometimes these things are are Neville. And I think if you're an athletic director like Philip you want the decision to to make itself easy. And I think last night it did maybe he feels that with one more game and a road trip coming up tomorrow. It's better just to get out of her way and let her finish that. And then regroup before the the chimney. She'll be playing again team would be playing again probably on Wednesday. I think maybe Thursday, but these things move quickly and as a head coach. When there's no way to avoid it. And I know I I know coaches say all the time. Well, you know, I'm I'm gonna bubble. I don't know what's going on. But when you have the lead sports columnist in that community who's been there now for thirty three numbers. Write a column that's published online at noon today, saying the head coach should be fired. There's no escaping. It. Will they'll work something out with Holly? They're not they're not going to fire her Holly. I know they work at a separation of that. And there will be it will be I have all the faith and coach former hiring a good coach.

But I guess you'll tightly fall granted than that. So I don't know about that some people commie a sports columnist and and on top of that. I do lots of fun things like, I'm the president of the North American association of sports communists. I ended the journal of sports economics law, and I do lots of fun things. Looking at the intersection of sports and economics. So let's talk about the economics of the Super Bowl. You know? It's the biggest cultural event of the year here in America. I mean, it's it's like we have the World Cup every single year. But it's just this one game. And it's become more of a. A thing. It's become more happening. It's not really a sporting event. You think about how many people are going to get together on Super Bowl Sunday or the, and and you know, they're going to eat and they're going to watch the game. And they're going to talk about commercials and all that kind of stuff. But really, they're not even football fans. You know, what they're fan of is conviviality, let's get together and have a little party, you know, let's drink. And so is there any data that lets us know what that day, not not as not as a sports team or not as bringing the game to a city, but that day itself what kind of impact does that have on the nation economically. Well, certainly we know for individual products. It's a huge day. For example, it is the single largest day of consumption of academies in the United States. Well, you gotta have you gotta have guacamole for for the big. Game. So for individual products. Boy, you are really depending on having a good SuperBowl. 'cause it's a long wait for the avocado growers until next Super Bowl. Sunday, avocado Christmas. Chris it's bad day to be a chicken because new digress ties told us the number chicken wings, it consumes also a bad day.

"Twitter feed at sarahspain at Nick, free del at Spain and fits well, if there were no media members voting on the hall of fame, then you couldn't blame the media for what happened to Tarallo ins, right? If it was just hall of fame members and the folks who run the hall of fame voting, then there'd be no one to blame, but the hall of fame itself and that's something Dan Wetzel Yahoo, sports columnist said in his story, voter fraud, why sports writers shouldn't vote for sports awards and Fitz and I were both one hundred percent on the same page that it should not be requirement to get into the hawk. All which is the legacy and not a TV show to say that you're going to show up for the ceremony. You either were graded football, one of the best ever or you weren't, and whether you show up and give a speech has no bearing on that, but we wouldn't be mad and all the people that decided to hold their vote for Teo because of how he treated the media or his teammates if it wasn't up to the media to make that vote. So free. Pretty clear Bill barn wells into this. Do you think free del that they should stop having media members vote for the hall of fame? No, I don't believe that's there. And I, I say that as a media member myself, that's where my bias is, but the issue I'd have is you're, you're never quite sure how many of these hall of famers are watching that very closely. And I can just tell you an experience of dealing with MBA hall of famers in talking to them over time. The guys still love the game. But most of the guys that I've spoken to, they just don't watch it as closely as they used to. So it's never going to be a a great system in how this is all adopted in how the hall of fame institutes, their guidelines. But I think it's the best that it can get at the moment because if you're trying to find. Only hall of famers to make these decisions your banking on. In this case, a lot of guys who may not really follow the sport that closely anymore. Yeah, I think that's a great point. I understand woetzel's argument here, but I don't think he's right in saying the media shouldn't vote for MBP's rookie of the years coach, coach years, all stars, etc. Because it shouldn't be up to the fans. The fans are non digesting. The majority of the league, the way that media is they are going to probably be biased for their team and against their rivals and not using the proper protocol and voting based on the criteria. And that's why I think it's also idiot when years down the road when we're trying to decide the legacy of a player whether that's hall of Famer otherwise. So often we use metrics like all pro seasons, not all pro, but Pro Bowl, Pro Bowl is one or NBA all stars when we have been voting like member the years where it was just stuff in the ballot for ya. Coming. It's not that he wasn't a great player, but member when, gosh, who's the guy that I'm blanking on NHL that they ended up. He ended up winning MVP to horse. We don't remember his name, sir. We remember Bastagli. Ecstatically in deserve it as much as I like him, and he's certainly shouldn't have been traded and sent down in order to avoid it, which was the NHL's terrible mishandling of not wanting a guy that maybe didn't deserve the honor to be there. He was anyway and they made his family move and otherwise to try to stop it. But that's why fan voting is because then we try to use that honor that was decided by fans to decide the legacy of these players, but the media is different. Yeah, they were certainly going to be some media that don't vote the right way that care whether that player gave them good quotes or otherwise. But I think for the most part, it's a group of people that understand the expectation to be unbiased that put in the work that care about making a vote based on knowledge of the player knowledge of the league and the competition, and you're right. I don't know that there's a much better way to do it except for maybe current athletes and coaches, but I'm sure you can think of some. Reasons why that's not ideal as well..

"Congratulations. This is the dumbest article I've ever read and I was like, oh, go ahead and click on that. Let's see what that's all about. And it's it's a story about Stanford star. Bryce love. And Dennis Dodd is very angry, a CBS sports columnist with Dodd with with Bryce love for not attending Pac twelve media day and let me just be you the beginning of the story. Bryce love wanted to be here. He really did the nut balls outside and Hollywood Boulevard. During Pac twelve media day wouldn't have fazed him the media's knotty questions inside the lows. Hollywood hotel may have, but that's not the point. The Stanford superstar. Tailback was here in spirit only that is if you kind of nineteen Eighty-four big brother, projection on a ballroom, video board, love joined the media day via Skype. So first of all. When you joining a meeting via Skype, that doesn't mean you're in spirit only that that's that's when you can't attend something and you send a message like have some drinks for me. I'll be with you in spirit. No, he was. He was with them on a screen so he could actually interact with them. And then dad goes on to hap- -solutely rail on love for missing what amounts to a fluff fest media day show that is already incredibly over the top. Considering we're talking about Amateur Athletics, and I get it, it makes you lots of money, but that doesn't mean that when a player misses this fluff fest in July, you take him to task, especially when he's missing it because he's going to class. He's trying to graduate in December. So he's taking more classes over the summer and he is not only taking classes just outside of the regular. Time, it's because he's a major in human biology who's interested in pediatrics and stem cell research. This is about as good an example. As you can get of a student athlete, we can show up Skype eating, even blow it off. He just wasn't there in person. The way the story is written is so odd. He Cl dot claims that loves absence sets, dangerous precedent, and also sort of pseudo threatens by saying that Stanford forfeited a bit of leverage to protest. If love doesn't win the Heisman as if not showing up in person to July event should affect how he or anyone else votes for the Heisman. I, my mind is blown Nick and you obviously Greek as you thought it was fake. I looked at you a really through it like, no, this is for real what Sarah everybody's entitled to his or her own opinion. The the larger issue to me is that we're. In the end of July, and there really isn't that much going on in the sports world. But this particular take and it is very hot. This is all day scorching hot take. I don't agree with and I've read Dennis as stuff for a long time. I'm a huge college football fan, but if we're going to start knocking athletes who don't show up at at some conference media day, come on now who truly is it really that big of a deal. Also like, listen, I'm not gonna take to task everything about the article, but it's worth noting that there's just sort of a series of thoughts thrown out there that don't tie to each other. He says, Stanford is that place that walks. The academic walk. Love is majoring in human biology with an interest in pediatrics and stem cell research in January, the Heisman Trophy runner up decided to come back for his senior season, what's not to like, which is what we're all asking. Right? What's not to like like all of this. Oh, what are you so mad about? And then you follows it up with some media who showed up here. Wednesday, didn't know that the conference marquee player wouldn't be here. So I guess that's what's not to like as you didn't get a heads up that you would interact with him via screen instead of in person. And then he randomly throws in that interpersonal connection is still important. We have a certain chief executive who chooses to govern by Twitter. No. And my throws a mention to the president and has nothing to do with anything, and then he finishes strong with at Stanford. They don't necessarily chase trophies. That's fine too. It's just that we thought we knew your Bryce. We wish we knew more..
