"And i think we could go on forever with dan evans to talk about qiming. He has daughters jason and he he gets it he gets exactly how monumental this is an super cool to hear some of the personal stories to okay. Here we go jason You have predictions are tradition and the draft is coming up on wednesday. I'm going to say the bulls are either gonna take ball or trade up data. I think that there's only one generational talent in this drafting still no-balls need a playmaker of the both need to actually win and drop in the first time in forever. So i think the bulls are gonna get lamelo ball somehow someway with artur services a new general manager or vice president best operations. That is taking the bulls. Ready to make a splash. And i'm gonna just throw in a little caveat there that we are taping this on monday. The day that kim ing was introduced by the miami marlins so few days before the draft. And if you're listening to this episode after the draft go ahead okay Then my second prediction. We are off the heels of notre dame pulling off an incredible upset against clinton A little over a week ago. So i'm going to say that both notre dame and cleanse make the cows football playoff. I think the fighting irish went out up until the championship club. Trevor lawrence back trevor lawrence and the tiger. You're gonna wind up dan but it won't matter. Both teams will make the playoffs. It'll be great a lot of fun By final prediction is today. Like you said it's monday The ncaa out today that the ncaa tournament will be held in these same city. All every single round will be held in indianapolis where it's likely i'm just gonna say right now. I don't think that we make it all the way to january Three of any error. Allot of preachy. A lot of free concerts play tournaments already been scratched due to covid so. I think that there's some sort of issue whether the nc double. I takes a two week break or they scratch a lot more. Non conference tournaments I just think that we're in for a really rough and into the college basketball she. That's production rough beginning to college basketball season. I hope that everything just because we got out of the tournament thought I just don't think she's hey. By the way you sound so much better. And i want to let our listeners know when we were recording one of our earlier episodes You were really under the weather and we didn't talk about it on the air but we were concerned But you were not Covert positive. So i was not. Yeah i think had. Which certainly isn't pleasant but i always go negative been sanitizing. Wash my hands wearing a mask. That's why i was kinda caught off guard by the fact that i was sick is You can never take too many precautions but at the same time. I think it just goes to show that everyone needs to be a little extra careful because you can be like me and wipe out seemingly every single risk and you come down like on my desk bad for day so This everybody keeps getting careful. I'm lucky that i think Kovin gonna continue to take cautions and ruined sir. Okay let me give my final thoughts because this is a big show topic for me. So i'm just been balancing since the news this week. All it takes is one. One woman. One woman doctor, one woman dentist, one woman police officer, one woman vice president, one woman baseball executive, one woman sportscaster . That's all it took for me 40 years ago to know that that's what I wanted to be a sports caster. Not a female sportscaster. Like Dan Evans was saying, just a sports caster. All I needed was to see Gayle Gardner doing it on Espn to know that I had something in my future. That I would love to do. And now Kim Ng, Kamala Harris and so many other women in everyday careers who don't get the notice right now. All of you will have an opportunity to influence girls everywhere because all it takes is one. One person to stand up against the norm one person to go against the practices. Just because it's always been that way one person to be strong enough to force change when people ask why it took Kim Ng so long to get a general manager job in baseball when she has been qualified for 20 years. It's because all it took was one team owner or president to force the change that can be set in any arena where women don't get the board positions, the jobs, the rights as their male counterparts. Don't wait for the next generation to do it because you think well they'll take care of it. It'll be a natural fit it's inevitable. Many of us waited decades for the inevitable and it really didn't come. Remember in 1923 the equal rights amendment was first introduced and it took nearly 50 years, 1972 before it was actually passed. That's an entire generation of women, a lifetime, and another nearly 50 years before a woman vice president, a woman general manager in baseball. Seriously. See what I'm saying. It's been almost one hundred years since we started talking about equal Change rights. is not inevitable. It can take that long if you let it. Don't just go with the consensus, as Martin. Luther King said you can mold that consensus. Don't take the safe way out, do the right thing and be the one who stands up and forces that change now. You could do it for your daughter your granddaughter. Your wife your sister. Don't wait for someone else because tomorrow does not promise anything.

"Your mom was one of the pioneers in chicago when it came to sports broadcasting and happened to be woman and i think for people like your mom. I think you see the world changing. Were far more respectful and aware that it can't be a boy's game anymore. It's time to let the best people in the room. And if they happen to be a woman so be it. But i think the great thing jason. She checks a lot boxes. She's an asian woman who didn't play in the big league. That was such a stigma. Twenty years ago. Oh you didn't play in the big lake. My gosh i heard it well now. I think young women wake up and they say there's somebody looks like me in that role and until today really until friday. No one ever saw anyone looking like them in that role. And it's fifty. One percent of the world's population now suddenly is asian american woman years. The general manager of the miami. Marlins i think that alone or give hope to not just young women. Asian american men. Suddenly we say wait a second. Here's somebody looks like me. I can be that person. And i think for that. Our society is better off today. I have said that for so many years that all it takes is one seeing one person that looks like you in an industry to say. Oh my gosh that's it. I'm going to do this. Okay i want to do this. And that's what it took for me indian. You're so right. The number of people that she is going to affect the in the future generations. This is personal for a lot of us. And i'm still getting emotional right now because it is that big of a deal. Can she handle it mean. Just that's a lot of pressure on one person's shoulders and we don't mean to make it a bigger mountain than it is but truly when they are in the decision making and the hiring and the firing that is when we have progress because they make decisions on who gets some of those jobs. Great clink peggy. I think first of all yes. Undeniably qualified has been qualified for probably about fifteen years I remember sitting in our pool in los angeles with our feet in the water and she had just been denied one of those opportunities and i said listen.

"You know so. I don't see now if you could get chris carpenter to manage to coach and that'd be a great get car has some really interesting traits. We saw what he did on the field. You know i'm saying. Saudi did eleven in the world series. Great career prior to that but just a leader in every sense of the word players gravitated toward him when he spoke people listening. You know he's kinda got that commanding personality. You mentioned the game changing and get a little bit younger and and a little bit more. Flashy you know it. It's tony gonna have the ability to change. You know if you bring in. Chris rock and they're going to have the ability to change. Because it's not what it was five ten fifteen twenty years ago you know as far as the players expressing themselves differently and and the unwritten rules are starting erase as we've all seen so i think there's gonna be some give and take on both sides. Motorist this marriage to work. But i do think it's environmental higher anytime you can bring on and tony larussa. I think i think he gotta do. Y'all honestly i'm still just before and a few interviews talking about this. He's the greatest baseball mind. I've ever been around and i mentioned some pretty good ones and it's taking nothing away from the guys. I played for because they're all phenomenal managers but he just was excellent in a lot a lot of areas. That's really interesting.

"I'll tell you what Olin is really becoming a very good analyst. He's got great eyes on the game great personality that it's always a joy to talk to him. Let's see Jason time for your predictions. What are you got? All right Peggy. I just I don't know when I'll be free agency is going to start but I will say that the White Sox are designed Trevor Bauer's are going to break the bank first hundred million dollar cost deal in team history to me often and not just come inside my second prediction that they are not going to hire Tony larussa. I don't know where that came from the hiring a 76 year old to manage. One of the youngest teams in baseball just sounds really counterintuitive me. My third prediction is that the bowls when the NBA draft comes I believe there's a few weeks to three weeks. They're going to draft lamelo ball. So lots of exciting name can be coming to Chicago. No, lots of lots of turnover between the Blackhawks and bowls and the White Sox. It'll be very interesting winter. You can know we're really not going to see Chicago Sports except for the Bears over the winter months. I loved it. Hey, it seems like it's been forever since we all faced the first shutdowns of our cities due to the coronavirus Pandora if you have your second not looking too beautiful, Austin, Texas, and we don't have to worry about a thing. Oh, come on. What here's my final thoughts that was back in March for all of us and Jason you sound like a whole different person you were down in the dumps. You were depressed that there was no Sports. No college basketball tournament. All the games were put on hold opening day for baseball was ruined everything now. It's seven months later and not facing what they are calling the second wave here in the Midwest and just like the squirrels and all the other animals. We too are starting to hunker down for a Long Winter. It's not going to be easy because Have to tell you something. I had a great summer. Honestly, I cannot remember the last time I truly truly enjoyed being outside whenever I could I played a ton of money. Yes. I played a ton of golf. I played a ton of golf had the best year of my life. I was down to a what was I down to a 13 handicap which was way too low for me, but let me let me just interject. Really. I remember three four times a week over the summer coming down stairs like 11:30 being like, where's where I thought it was listen. We were we were given the opportunity to be outdoors and some fashion playing golf being on an outdoor patio eating at a restaurant that had outdoor seating. It's one thing that the pandemic has done and it's made all of us grateful for what we do have. I truly appreciate the restaurant industry workers who are still hanging on by a thread. Our businesses but became really creative and worked tirelessly to give us all a place to be friends and to be social to the golf courses that changed how they did business again. I could enjoy things outside. I don't know what the next few months are going to bring but it feels an awful lot like it did a few months ago a bit helpless until as Mike Ditka said after he was fired in nineteen, ninety three this too shall pass.

"Not going to break two or three tackles and go to the house. So the birth Are missing that kind of player. I'd like to see them improve their with their running game and their offensive line working together. Cuz look at here's the here's the honest truth about the Bears to be honest with you. I'm an expert on it. There's not a lot of talent there and they have to they have to get in a room somewhere and they have to admit that to themselves. So when you don't have to have a lot of talent you you have to be all in by that I mean, you have to contract your details, you have to give maximum effort on every play. You have to be better than the sum of your cock. So when you asked me where they have to approve by position-wise, what they have to do is they have to improve all eleven guys have to be a well-oiled machine artists authors really doesn't have a chance so they have to go in every time thinking this is a gang fight. It's also 11:00 working together to pull this boat on a field do everything right. For example. You cannot on 34 come across the middle and a crossroad like Miller did and then run backwards you can do that. Okay, the offensive line has to be able to recognize run flip pick em up and give their running back or Kris and only way you pick a run place up is you all work together really really? Well. What do you think it's going to take because clearly no matter how many times you win like, you said earlier like all the matters at the end of the day just wait in the Bears have done that so far with the exception of the game against the against the cold. So what do you think of Acres have to do other than judge when to finally make the fans happy because although I'm not in Chicago from what my mom and some of my friends and saying it seems like people still can't like can't just be a happy with a good start off. Well, yeah, that's just a Bears fan, right? I paid her for thirteen years and I you know, you understand that and sometimes these new guys coming from out of town like a big bows and they can understand it. But yep. Is this the way it is right in when they're going to you know, what the what the Chicago fans want to see obviously is an offense that puts up 24 to 30 points a game. Like everybody else is in the back and then if he has dominated like they have them but my guess is you're only going to get that if you get a bunch of turnovers in a bowl starts popping out, but the problem is that happened last week and the Bergen it still didn't look really good. So if you're waiting for the offense to look really good looking play some really bad defenses and still haven't put the bone in don't still have it moved the ball consistently on the field. So I think we're pretty much looking at identity wise of what this team is for the rest of the season. I love the Spurs defense. I think everybody loves us. Friends there is I don't know what you can complain about with this Bears defense. They've only given up eight touchdowns and 19 points a game. I mean, that's nine touchdowns 18 field goals. This is them Numbers are amazing. And I almost look at it. Like the first couple of games. They felt like they were in preseason mode. They they were kind of getting into shape especially Robert Quinn, but now between Quincy and Hakeem Hicks and Khalil Mack the pressure that they're getting up front allowing the guys in the back to make the plays and they're making the plays. This is like old bear football that everybody loves but I want to ask you cuz I know we only have a minute or two left. I want to ask you this Olan the penalties. I have a different. I have kind of a boxing mentality when it comes to penalties like yes, they can be stupid. And yes, the Bears are like tied for last or tied for the top with the most penalties. Whatever in the NFL they can be stupid too many men in the Huddle stupid stupid stupid. We know that Nagy isn't trying to you know, pull something over in a Bill Belichick kind of weigh. Those are just stupid penalties on defense. Well, this is how I feel like late hits roughing-the-passer. Unnecessary roughness, I know we're trying to protect the safety of the players, you know Olin sometimes those are wake-up calls that you kind of need to put in the head of an offensive player that holyshit. These guys can hit and and almost to the point where they're going to start hearing footsteps. And and it doesn't bother me as much what's happening with Kyle Fuller off. The only thing you don't want to happen is for the refs to start labeling you as one of those guys and now they start looking for it, right? But but the good thing is if the refs break down film like Thursday, we know they do they'll see that that he's not being dirt. He's actually trying to hit them with perfect fundamentals which his shoulder you guys head out of there. So hopefully the Reps Thursday that they're making a mistake and you're you're totally correct about this defense man. They are fun to watch their defensive line. You know, we all know the names Khalil Mack Hakeem Nicks and Robert Quinn, but this Mario game Words, I watch the game with the Panthers. He beat the left guard three times in a row. So they're going to win if guys like Mario Edwards are Roy robertson-harris are Brett Urban are going to win there was a guy on match up. This deal is going to be unstoppable pay going to be honest with you. So yes, you wanted to defense plan on the edge a little bit and honestly, I'd like to see a personal fall from an offensive lineman eventually at this month. They get that kind of mentality to where they're hustling down the field cleaning off the pile of giving Max effort. I definitely I am not worried about Kyle Fuller actually. I mean, he's got a very high level he's very he's smart you take advantage of he knows how good that decrease the line is. So he takes calculated chances on this shooting on Route, you know that the receiver and have a lot of time to run double move. So he took his own he knows the balls got to come out and then he just hunts the guys crossing over the middle and push very good hits on them. You know, you could say he was there a little early in that. You know the one yep. Action picked it off and went to the end zone but you could also argue that that doesn't get called very often in the NFL. So I'm hoping this a little bit of a bad luck there on the calls from the referees because they could have gone either way but this defense I don't think you worry about it. I think they just keep playing exactly the way they've been played and a guy that that needs to be mentioned besides Jalen Johnson. We played really well for a rookie. It's tashaun gipson the added him to the secondary with Eddie Jackson and those two guys wouldn't be surprised if the secondary expert guys suck at bowling or these guys who work for ESPN. I wouldn't be surprised if they say that Gibson and Jackson or the best safety combination in the league by the end of the year. Wow. Hey, I think you're right to I think they're missing a Kyle long little scruff, you know that kind of that fire on the offensive line of times. All right, we're just about out of time, but I just have one comment to say and log All in the Bears signed Manti Te'o this past week and I just gotta say that fifteen years ago you and your teammates would have had a field day and in the locker room with a man title. That's all I'm going to say. You know, I would.

"They gave Robert Quinn 70 million additives. Okay, the Bears offensive line, we all know needed help so they went on and got Germain ifedi for league minimum. So now now we're not very confused why the Bears all kind is not plain great football game right now, right and it's just even when I when I used to play for the Bears for years people would ask me that question what's wrong with the Bears offensive line and and trying to be a good teammate, I wouldn't say a word but my what I wanted to say, I have you looked at the draft pick since we got here right? Have you have you looked at who we've signed? I remembered 2009 the offensive line was terrible and and I had a conversation with some of the month. We gotta we really need to improve our offense right? We're going to get get color killed here. And so what they did is around the side Julius Peppers, they put another Hall of Famer on a defense of Brian Urlacher and in the club. Discontinue the next year why is your offensive line so bad and I just keep looking at the people would ask the question that they man. I mean, all you have to do is look at draft picks and look at who we sign is free agent and you figure out why we don't play very often decided the line. Yeah, they're buying Toyota's on the offensive line and Porsches on defense. So it's a little it's a little different. Sorry about that chase of go ahead with the exception of the offensive line. Which what other unit on the entire team. Do you think needs improve the most in order for the Bears to validate their their Good Start? You know, what I what I'd like to see an improvement on is David Montgomery just or somebody. I don't know who they'll get artavis Pierce or or Cordarrelle Patterson or so. You know, what I'm getting to is when when all Chris lines does give me your whole you have to hit it right and and here's a problem with David Montgomery, even if you know, I love the way he played he's not going to break two or three tackles and go to the house. So the birth Are missing that kind of player. I'd like to see them improve their with their running game and their offensive line working together.

"I watch Nick Foles press conference. And he you know, he got he got emotional over being questioned them about them not being very good. And I think coach Nagy was irritated to kind of like, you know Peggy my my answer was a welcome to Chicago and you play off with a really good defense, right? So, they'll get used to it, you know, as long as you win games nothing else really does matter. I mean, obviously when you look at them from an analyst standpoint, you're wondering when they get into that wage work or if an office desk or twenty one point early or three touchdowns. Can we score 28 to 30 points which they have? I think they get the bulk. Is it put up 30 points or the phone number? To go to Indiana fell but like you said pay you and you watch that defense, they're extremely good and they got one thing that a lot of good teams and teams that have good success with the formula of the defense wins games. They create chaos with a quarterback and they speed up the offense is clogged which creates turnovers. So that defense to me on film look up to dominate not only been six weeks, but that's secondary to find the involved the defense side how good they've been playing is that secondary is playing really well also, so so, you know and thought we'd love to say there's no pictures on the scorecard. I don't care how you got that birdie. A birdie is a birdie a win is a win but we would have loved for it to be beautiful and to be you know them be a great well oiled machine, but how long can they sustain this throughout the rest of the NFL season?

I'm yep Peggy kusinski 12 time Emmy award-winning sportscaster at NBC Chicago for Seventeen years. I'm the baby boomer. I'm Jason and I am dead. Now I can't even say that Jason. I don't always get along because the fact of the matter is that for the first time in his lifetime 18 years. Jason is living away from home at college. So we really can't fight at all. Yes. We do still share a mutual love of sports. And Jason is super lucky because you get to watch college football games. How is school going Jason? Who's going really really? Well. I've never really good time down here. I've met some good people. I've gotten all my schoolwork done when football games have an experience winning football, but the weather's great food. Great. People are great not really too much to complain about. I love it. What's it like going to live football games? Cuz we we here in Chicago have no idea what that's like, it's really really nice. It is really really nice. It's something that I feel like they all took for granted back before covet. When you run out something for a couple of months something that you really care about if it's the joy when it comes back so then do a few football games that you've been a really good time again hadn't really win to one too many of them. But regardless, I can't complain of happy to support the back in this episode the Bears. They're five and won three games shy of the Midway point of the season and yet Jason, I don't know if you can figure this out in Austin, Texas, but here in Chicago fans are not happy. It's the typical Chicago Bears fan that is not happy with the five. One record. It's perplexing. The offense isn't great. The defense is great yet. They are finding ways to win people in Chicago are not happy. Does that surprise, you know God no that does not surprise me in the slightest. Yep. Pause me know but I will say that the people from Chicago that I know here everybody's married. I didn't know if my buddies who were going to school across the country that a big Bears fans are even more excited. So I think that what you leave Chicago may experience of losing first and it's a lot easier to let the team. Yeah, it's been the typical you're you're not happy with the success and even Matt Nagy last week after their win over Carolina and Nick Foles felt the same way they were like, listen, we know it was winning ugly. But she is at least let us celebrate that were five and one. Yeah, I don't even think of the Carolina win was winning ugly. That was a game like where they thoroughly LED from like kick off to kneel down and that was the first win where it's a matter of fact, I think that we should all it for full quarter from the Bears and the Buccaneers win. Absolutely. Nobody should have been complaining about the Falcons win. I don't see how you complain when you come back from down twenty. I could see now the line when was dead Was really messy and the Giants win, but the last three wins and the last four games has all been born depressive as they went along. Like I said, the Buccaneers win this more impressive themselves when Panthers win was more demanding than the Box went and now playing the lands on Monday Night Football at home is six point underdogs. This is the biggest test of the season and if the Bears can win this one that I think.

"Sorry, we do not have any of Jason's predictions this episode. We will check in with him down the next show, but I do have some final thoughts when remembering Gale Sayers. I can't help but recall covering the Bears greatest Return Man ever. The game's greatest return game ever the greatest Devin Hester. He once told me that he doesn't see uniforms or Defenders when returning kicks rather. He sees colors home. He was the most dynamic player. I have ever covered for the Chicago Bears everyone held their breath on the kick. No one knew what to expect but not many came to expect touchdowns every time he forced teams to change their kicking game playing eight of his 11 NFL seasons with the Bears Devin Hester. Was the most prolific return specialist in league history holding NFL records with 19 kick return touchdowns, 14 hunt return touchdowns and twenty return touchdowns, which would include punch kickoffs missed field goals fumbles and interceptions a three-time pro bowler and part of ESPN's all-decade team Devin Hester played in a different generation, obviously than Gale Sayers and yes, he heard all about the Kansas, from reporters who were constantly comparing him to save or maybe from his dad who was a big Gale Sayers fan has two reminds me of stairs off the field as well. Very humble quiet. Shy thought they did they're talking with their feet on the field in 2022. Devin Hester is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. There's never been a return guide to be elected to the home. Of Fame but there's never been anyone like Devin Hester. Remember Gale Sayers impact on the league and only seven seasons. He was a running back and a return box. Yes. I half back and returned guy into the Hall of Fame. You have to look at Devin Hester changing the game of football in the eight of his eleven Seasons playing for the Chicago Bears and 2011 Gale Sayers was quoted as saying Devin Hester deserves to be in the Hall of Fame no.

He passed away in September of 2020 at the age of 77 from dementia. Now for my generation. I did not get to see him play. We were of the Walter Payton generation. He was typically who your fathers and uncles and grandfathers would talk about while we watched Bears games. He was their favorite running back Sayers was inducted into birth.

His career was over at the age of twenty-six Sayers was a sight to be seen the Great Hall of Fame linebacker. Did Butkus was drafted back-to-back with Sayers in nineteen sixty five the two of them taken with the third and fourth overall picks bucket said he never came up against a running back like Sayers in his career including O J Simpson adding. No one could touch this guy NFL commissioner Rodger. Goodell said Sayers was one of the game's most exciting players electrifying and Elusive and Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey spoke of stairs rare combination of speed as the game's most electrifying Runner dangerous. Kick returner. Yep. Well as his relationship with teammate Brian Piccolo, which many of you know from the movie Brian's Song McCaskey said it's so well, the movie is messaged fifty years later that Brotherhood and love need not be defined by skin color Gale Sayers was a sight to be seen five-time All-Pro averaging five yards per carry for his career choice. He led the league in rushing 4956 total yards one scoring six touchdowns in a game 39 touchdowns primarily all over the first five seasons because they played so sparingly in seventy and seventy-one. It was a joy to watch the films of Gale Sayers. It was like poetry in motion. So many people would say and it truly has been wonderful to hear so many people reflect on one of the game's greatest running back. And return men in the history of pro football. Well, you can't talk about Gale Sayers without obviously talking about the movie that has made more men cry than any other and that is Brian song. But what you need to know about the movie is before there was a movie there was a book and it was called Brian Piccolo a short season written by an amazing woman who was a Trailblazer in Chicago and accomplished journalist and author first female sportscaster in the city of Chicago for television. This is folks were talking about this is back in the seventies right home and she was the first woman to report from the live from the Superbowl. She wrote the book Brian Piccolo a short season. She is Jeannie Morris, and this is the book in which Brian Crain song is based off of ingenious. So kind to join us right now on the podcast Genie welcome and thank you for taking the time to join me. Well, thank you Peggy. It's good to talk to you again. I woke. Talk to you for a while. I know I love it. You know people should know Jeanne as a mentor to me because I'm by many people think that I'm a Trailblazer in Chicago and I always correct them know Jeannie Morris is the true Trailblazer. So and much more accomplished Genie. Let's let's go back to the sixties and the seventies the the Chicago Bears back. Then you had an intimate knowledge of the team you worked closely with them because your husband at the time Johnny Morris was a player for the Bears. How did you come to get to know? Let's say nay Sayers. Well, you know the football that the the subculture of professional football which you're pretty familiar with I gained a kind of birth Viewpoint of what it was like as a wife of a player for ten years before I ever started writing about it or went into television and off. It still fascinates me and it did Then and Gail of course was drafted. Not sure I think Johnny Played with Gail maybe one year off and their their their careers crossed over not very long, but Gail, but when I started doing television and we started rioting, I spent more time getting to know the players and so I would meet every new rookie one way or the other and Gail was of course with chronic Kansas Comet a lot of attention and I would I remember trying to interview him and really wasn't real good talker. And so I got acquainted with his wife who was each of a gal and I remember doing a story where I had to work around it was a workaround or a limited most of the talking and gals in most of the running so it worked out real. Well, you know, you could do that with TV you substitute the visuals 4 a.m. Sometimes right, right, right. So what what was your impression of him was he was he quiet was here. He was a very quiet guy right off a quiet. Yes, and and as all players are and you probably worked with them enough to know kind of insecure about his work even though he's brilliant.
TV Ratings: Emmy Awards Drop to All-Time Low 6.1 Million Viewers
"The 2020 Emmys thatjust happened on Saturday night. The ratings were not great. Although people did say that they enjoyed the show, a lot of people watched online and So they got about 6.1 million viewers, and I think they average usually for that show 11 12 million viewers on the night that it airs. It is one of the bigger award shows. Actually, I always think of it as being kind of the Oscars. The Emmys. The Grammy's are the only ones I Really care about the I completely forgot that it was on to the extent that I was shocked when I saw That every there's Yeah, like I went. Oh, my God. That happened. And I'm supposed to know that And I didn't. I didn't. I just So I can see. Look, I've been listening to people on the sports talk or would ever talk about how ratings air down for for and and all I can think of When I hear first of all here, a sportscaster bitching about the ratings or something, I think, dude. We didn't have sports for months now, all of a sudden you're back in this taken for taken it for granted thing, like, be glad you have something to talk about The idea that your bitching about the ratings being down, I think ratings they're going to be weird to follow in every Avenue, every lace and it's just a matter of do you want to keep Consistency in place for when things go back to normal, or do you just want to have nothing on It's up to you, You know, I mean, I really right. I'm glad their stuff to watch. Thank God there's football. I don't know the thing about the this ahh 72nd Emmy awards, drawing 6.1 million viewers. I actually sort of blame ABC, because while I was aware that they were happening Because I knew that the creative Emmys were happening last week like I had been watching so many stuff coming up, so I knew those were the precursor. I didn't see any advertisement for this nun on Social media. Not not any on TV. Not that I'm watching. Like network TV all the time. I just think Less fewer and fewer people are actually sitting down and watching network TV. So fewer and fewer people know what's actually happening on the thief on the 34 big broadcast networks, So I'm not super surprised by this actually way more people watched it on Online in some form or other And that's the other thing. I think ah is causing of a knish you for ratings is that I don't know that someone watching on I keep going back to the NFL, but it's another big ratings. Boom. You know, I mean, they're a lock their the number one TV show every time footballs on it wins. But people are watching on their phones and on their pads and there, you know, you say, Well, why would you? I can't explain what young people do, and an old people couldn't explain what I used to do. That's just the way that's youth. You can't explain it, but they watch on their phone and until that that way that account ratings that's going to go unaccounted for. Right? Well, it's not, and I have gone accounted right that may have gone unaccounted for. For the grant the Emmys as well. You're actually saying that, um, about 11.9 million Total social interactions happened on the on the show for Sunday night. And they say that's up over 100% from the 2019 Emmys. So I just think people don't sit down and watch TV the way they used to, and TV if you want to survive, has got to figure out a way to make that work for them on the other screens that are available to all of us.
"Sports blogging" with WhiteSox Dave - Episode 028 - burst 01
"You just said your redline Radio podcasts how do you get players on? We'd do other huddling on our own so you don't go through the team. I if point no boy I always give them the a heads up. Yeah. Like a professional courtesy. So if like Giulio or a Redan or you know Danny Mandich was on last week or two weeks ago, those guys I'll do is hit me. Hey on this. And they they like that are style of interview. We. Don't talk a torn about baseball like we'll talk about college. Or Video Games or music or you know what you put on your accounting be sandwiches like that kind of stuff. So it's like It's Stanford I'm Kinda let their hair down a little bit and just beat themselves. So it'd be like that and they enjoy doing it. So you are you around the team are you allowed to be around as a reporter? Do they the players know you or is everything done remotely? While right now we have to be remote I. if like they've given me processes when I've asked for them but that's not what I'm here for like there's enough people that like got merging a good friend of mine like those guys all do a great job. like covering the team from the beat writers perspective I. Don't try to do that I try to cover it from the homer fan boy perspective, and that's why that's made us successful and way. So when is Steve Stone coming on Redline Radio Broadcasts? We will find out meeting tonight online last night. Last. Night Stock Math winters a friend of mine very rayfield and He won talked he came in our office today and they do the video for the next day that they earned the broadcast I was in I can't him come into the office from video I'm not positive. They're GONNA wet Like me being a video or they're going to allow it so we'll see I didn't see anything wrong to him like I and I. Hundred different time go at week or so. He said that like fans shouldn't be carrying about wins and losses right now that we should only be happy baseball back I disagreed with him I'd say, Hey, like we haven't seen a playoff team since two thousand twelve. We. Expected a team to be really good this year they just started one in four like what did you expect the reaction to be any blackmail for like? Think, Long. Neck or anything and I never would I eat don't like he one of the smartest guys you can yeah, ever pop into. Site dating wrongs we agreed any black me. He didn't WanNa talk about which whatever but I made a joke of it, and now I think and of course, people took it too far and were you know sending him tweet about me that are completely false and everything and He he like want nothing to do with me. But if that's the case then I'm GonNa, do my job and have fun. So. Do you think that his reaction was just like a straight up no tolerance to like going back and forth on twitter or do you think the he in a way like knew who you were or knew about the barstool brand just didn't want to deal with it. I think that I do not think you know. He's he's seventy three years old look throughout the day. So He's obviously a little out of our demographic. I'm assuming he's not living on twitter like you know all of us millennials are used as and so I do not think he has any clue. Once. We had our little back and forth and like I said, I, wasn't like I was mad at the team because I like better I think and I said I, I don't think I'm not worried about the team I met that seems underperforming which they underperformed Carlos or Don came on the podcast after he got shelters I start and he's like suck last night I'm terrible I August insider first innings to nothing I can't be putting my team to nothing like they knew it to the players knew it. They weren't mad at me nobody else's mad at me so why why he's Like. Everybody was in agreement with me that the team was underperforming and that's always said and he and he was not have actually I. think he was in on the joke for a while until people were like taking it too far from Bharti retreat, which was not what I intended whatsoever so.

"The sportscaster and her son is brought to you by Elektra, flex a global leader in electrical conduit for over sixty years makers of liquid flexible conduit electrically connecting our world. Do. Hello everybody, and welcome to the sports caster and her son were sports bridges the gap between the generations. I'm your host Peggy Kozinski twelve time Emmy Award Winning Sports Caster at NBC Chicago. For Seventeen years, I am the baby boomer and I am Jason Commander I am eighteen years old. I'm going to be a student at UT Austin in two weeks I write for go Joe Bruin offense side. So we don't always get along but as we like To say we do share a mutual love of sports and that tends to get the conversation started in our household. Thus the sports caster and her son podcast came to life. In this episode I have always booked our guest. I have always come up with topics Jason, and from time to time, we'll discuss some ideas but I have generally driven this podcast for the last year and a half almost right and so I decided to let Jason Choose. Who you wanted to talk to today. So in this episode, What Are we doing? You probably wish it went down like that but in reality you didn't have a guest. So I decided that I would take the bull by the horns. Topic you never said Oh I'll do it. I'll come know he's in the kitchen a couple of days ago you were like. We we have to get more at least one more episode before..

"Okay Jason Time for your prediction. Predictions I wanted to say there was such an easy prediction I missed and it came true today. So. Today, the Miami Marlins had fourteen players and staff has positive. That was so predictable that was so predictable and I'm so upset the major league baseball just I I don't know if they assumed it wouldn't happen I. Don't know if they thought that by the will of God, they'd be able to have a sixty game season and. This is so predictable and so foreseeable and I'm so upset that I didn't predict this because now. What happened And it's just it's ridiculous I. Don't I. Do not have enough words to describe how annoying it is from a fan standpoint to see the NBA. Can can procure this bubble. The NHL can pure bubble but the MLB players association was so damn against a bubble, and now we are three games into a season and one team is going to have to feel a team tomorrow of all guys who have not played a major league baseball game before and half of their staff who have not coached in Major League Baseball Games before and Major League baseball shot themselves in the foot, the shot and selves in the foot. So. Anyway, my three prediction. I'm going to say that the NBA finishes season easily. It's been so far so good in the bubble there was the incident with Lou Williams leaving an ongoing to magic city, which has become a big joke on twitter, but it's really not funny. It's really not funny because if he sneaks back into the bubble and doesn't tell anyone that happened, you're putting lives at risk so I'm going to say that. Mba caught that early enough it's not gonNA happen again. NBA going to start and finish. The season will be a lot of fun. Okay. My second prediction, I'm going to say that. I'm going to back up on my prediction last episode and say that there will be a college football season bought it'll be abbreviated and not everyone's going to play. I. Think that. Some conferences you're going to play some won't. Some teams are going to cut the season short. It won't be an authentic college football season, but we'll still see guys out in the field hitting each other and cutting catching passes. So that excites everybody and then finally, I'm going to say this is a non sports action I'm going to say that. The majority of us that are going away to school are back home by Columbus Day. I do not just the more I think about it. The less doable I think that school is because you're bringing in my case. Thousands of people forty, five, thousand people into one area, and you can test them. All you want be you're not going to be able to control what people do when they are not obligated to be in class at that time, people are going to leave the cities or the college towns people are going to go home. People are going to do things that put their wellbeing and therefore the wellbeing of their. Roommates and people living in their dorms and people that go to the school people at the shop they go to the restaurants everything putting everybody's lives and wellbeing at risk I. Just don't think it's doable their way too many moving parts, and if you're having a hard time getting professional athletes to listen, you're going to have a really hard time getting college students to listen. So that's my prediction. It sucks. It's. But. I'm just going to be straight up and be realistic I really. Hope. I'm wrong on this one I really hope I'm wrong on this one. I just don't think it's possible. Well. I don't even know what to say that just gave me a that's a bummer I I hate the idea of you coming home. Ready to get me out of here. Here's my final thoughts. You know I told you this before I grew up watching the blackhawks on little black and white TV that was in our kitchen. Our family kitchen on Odell Avenue northwest side of Chicago I. Remember specifically Saturday Night Games. I'm not sure why I remember that but. I think they were on Wgn TV and you would wait to see bobby hull and Stan Mikita. Walking up the steps that were from the lower bowels of the old Chicago, stadium where their locker room was up to the Ice Tonio would already be out there in net for warm-ups There was so much drama to it with the music the Blackhawks Song playing in everything I didn't understand the game but I loved the speed of the fast pace. It was the middle of winter in Chicago and it gave you something to cheer for. Then hockey kind of just went away like we were talking about for so many in Chicago it became so irrelevant. Until Nineteen ninety-two Chellios in JR Jeremy Roenick. It became a personality driven again with a really good team. They helped sell the game of hockey again but eighteen years than of mediocrity again and hurt the franchise and they came back they rose up from like a Phoenix from the ashes thanks to tapes in Kane and embarrassed Patrick Sharp. Campbell Buffalo and once again, we were all watching the games with the family and that's what sports is supposed to do. Give you memories gives you something to cheer for take you away from whatever else is going on in your. Life, it's your escaped, and that family time has been so precious to all of us growing up because you get to watch your kids become a fan as well, and so with sports returning in at least them trying to return during Cova, my hope is that it is here to stay. My hope is that it brings families together again gives them things to talk about gives Jason is something to talk about on the phone when he's away at college and. Makes some new fans of maybe some new teams and maybe a new sport as well. So thank you to the Chicago Blackhawks because that's what you did for us as a family, and now you can get back to winning. Thank you to the Chicago. Blackhawks. Brian. Campbell you can find him on twitter at B Campbell underscore fifty-one. Also I'm Blackhawks TV and Colin Frazier as well.

"Kind of authenticates with at least one you're watching the game in the views of the pitcher throwing. To the to the batter, it kind of authenticates it because you don't just hear that noise in the background, so then the only times really that you'll notice the no fans when there's a fly ball in play foul, ball. It won't be hard to notice, but at least more casually, it'll make it a little bit more often, and who's the team? which team is the one that came up with the cutouts in the? Adult. Korean Baseball League started doing that, and then the San Francisco giants the first MLB team to do at the white sox doing for the first homestand. Actually the cuts already sold out so Cut outs of like season ticket holders just to fans. You could purchase it. I believe it was for seventy five dollars for the first. Sold out almost immediately so That's pretty funny I. Like that okay, so that's baseball NBA. Where do we stand with the NBA NBA is my favorite re. Start the top twenty two teams in the League so nine Eastern Conference Teams Thirteen Western Conference teams reported to Disneyworld Orlando They staggered it to where the bottom eight teams came first and the next day, and then the top eight, and they're all staying the. Same Hotel, the middle later staying. In the. Same Hotel all the players coaches staff had to quarantine for the first forty eight hours, and then they can go out and one of the best thing so far has been seeing on twitter tracking the NBA life because there's been a lot of complaining about the Food A. Lot of people saying that these players are privileged privileged. They shouldn't complain about the food. Hotel one of the most popular thing so far has been players have been fishing lot golfing. I remember. I saw a video of Donna's hassle on the heat ordered like a million Amazon packages. Patrick Beverley ordered like some really expensive wine and like a wind kit, so it's been so funny. It's so much fun to track. So the NBA they will start on the thirtieth I believe. Major League Baseball starts on the twenty third with every other team starting on the twenty fourth. So that's where the first Tuesday okay, so the NBA is more of a contact sport. Does it concern you that the risk is higher? It would seem in the NBA for player to player contact to. Transmit the disease, so that's why the bubble for the NBA was mandatory, because if you can have every single player at one point or another test negative, if you can get the negative test rate all the way down to zero percent by the time the game star, then.

You think we'll have I don't even know why baseball's even going to start. Why not just start it up next year? Basketball football's got a chance, could you do you think was the any sports? Yeah, I do I think by the end of the summer we will baseball. We believe there's an agreement in place. So by the end of July. They should be starting a sixty game season. Will be easier for them to play all their games at wide world of sports, the ESPN complex and. ORLANDO. Hockey hockey. Worry about because that's one of those sports that could least afford to lose any momentum of fans in a season, so they can't. They can't play I just think that it might be interesting with such a short season for hockey. It may end up being the best thing for them because everybody will be watching everything once it starts because everyone will have missed so much sports that might almost be like an NC double A. Tournament with hockey that everyone just gets into it because it's like a round robin one big tournament. A. Football will be interesting to see what happens in the fall right now, so many guys in training camps. The college training camps are are getting sick again or testing positive, so I'm just not sure how you can actually play. You can't play football social distancing. I'm not an idiot, but you first of all. It's one of the sports in which you're. You're dripping with sweat. You spit into the guy across the line from you into his. Is You know? You're you're on these piles these after a tackle? Exchanging you know you have a lot of your. Your body fluids our I. Just don't know with football how safe it's going to be! But I'm I'm interested to see it to be honest with you. I'm interested to see each of the sports because as fun as it's been to hang with your family and to kind of get back to maybe slowing down a bit i. I'm back to wanting to cheer for something and root for something so yeah I think we're going to see sports, but you never until the end of the summer I think. So, how will the Chicago bears do? Wish you say forget the virus. You know there's the schedule. How are they? GonNa! Do I well since I'm more of a fan now I like the team that they are building I like the competition that they have brought in at quarterback with Nick foles. If that will spark Mitch Trubisky The defense is. Happen! Never No, No you said Park and I just think of an old model t and Spark Plug No. You never know listen. It's the defense. The Defense Cook Kerry this team of the often just be right. You know passable. Now go now, go across the lake. How do you think they'd Detroit? Lions will do I don't care. Let's go!

We yeah, if we go if we go all the way back, thinking you, said Doc, you know and and today the world is talking about race and whatnot dock, and I were talking about Race Relations Yep. I mean decades ago it decades ago. It reminds me Steve and his producer. Marcus or if you remember. Our radio show, we were the. First, to ever have a float in the gay pride, parade and we had Dan the gay American. We've had Danny into Rome. You're trying to have a baby I was just what we were doing was talking about what was really happening in Chicago, and throughout the Midwest and and it really broke ground in today to this day. I still have that attitude you know I might. Be a lot older, but I'm. Still thinking outside the box is they say you are too, and you know what? I never really thought of it that way with doc that you and him would would have some really funny bits, and really what they were were eye opening exchanges as to. Stereotypes that we're going on. That still go still goes on right now. I can't believe you guys got away with some of the things that you did that was twenty years ago. Well one of the things that I'll never forget is I sent dock and Jerome. To a very wealthy neighborhood, and they were just walking down the street with television set. It was river were. And and and. And the cops came within ten minutes, and that was actually we did that on Martin. Luther King's birthday to see you know how far we had come and those moments. I love the show, but more importantly I love the audience because they were in on it, too. As far as you know, we did everything together with the audience.

You know I was like nine ten. You know all those years and you just didn't want to see. You're getting punched or him punching someone else and everybody's screaming, and so it was, it was Kinda rough until I actually started playing myself. you know starting in high school, so yeah, it was. It was rough watching that. Sure you watch the last dance documentary. If so, what were you takeaways? And especially? What are you remember from the two series against the jazz? Yeah we did watch the whole thing It was very well done I. Thought Sort of painful watching it over again. Yeah, but your dad. You had the line of of the episode asking Oh. Was that with the score? Ever. If people that don't know him and his weird humor really thought that he looks like a done tonight I'm like no, you don't understand his humor.

"So I heard you just described yourself as a guy from Tallahassee where there's a lot of rednecks so what in the heck is a redneck. Do in Chicago. I mean let me just set the stage for you in case you haven't thought about this in the last forty eight hours or whatever. There's been a long list of big names who have coach not only baseball Chicago football hockey basketball. I mean has it sunk in that? You are joining the list of of coaches and managers in. This city has not done that redback figured that out. I think it's slowly from processing that. Ah such a sports town to is it is. I was walking around yesterday And all the bears gear and what was going on Poke in your head into These bars and the windows and seeing the hockey on last night. You know the Blackhawks plan It's sports town. They're passionate about their their sports here in Chicago and I love that. I don't I come from a small college town of Tallahassee Where we you know we like our simple things and it's just you get to be a part of the city And I'm already connected in one way and now again trying to make history and no in the expectation of these fans. These people how passionate they are. I love it. I love the expectations. And what it carries. Because that's what I want to be held to. That's what I want do. I didn't come back just to be the you know the so-called manager in that Title I want come back win championships. I WanNa do special things make history. That's stuff that's driven me as a player at the end of my career. Once you're part of that and you get to touch taste that That that's a that's a great feeling. That's what I want to get back to. You brought up the bears so you know what it's like to win in this town and you are the toast of the town when you win last year. The bears were a double link away in the playoffs. They were the toast the town now. Four losses into a season and everybody is going crazy. Are you prepared to handle the losing in this town? The winnings great. It's the losing that can be tough. The winning is great but I think if from a player standpoint and also from a coaches or managers standpoint the winnings. You're expecting so when they come your you're onto the next one. Losing are the ones that drive you crazy right and you're passionate about how to fix it and how to how to go to work and and get better. So that's what you focus on is how to continue to get better and and hold your group to a standard. That is winning. And I've seen a lot of winning Over my years of playing and what that entails and what those expected patients look like the the losing drive me crazy. I'll tell you that I don't WANNA lose I. Winning is a passionate thing for me and I've been a part of losing and it's just not fun for anybody so that's not on my radar. I want I want to continue to focus on the aspects that I know that entail. They come with winning. And as long as I can get my players to adhere to that to trust each other respecting one another Effort their focus on a daily basis. That's all you can ask if your players talents. They're here the talents here in Chicago. That's going to quit to winning. That's all I WANNA hold these guys to is just those standards that I've seen over my career as a player of winning see brought up Tallahassee. You come from a family of athletes. I mean your mom might be the best athletes the family. I'm just saying she was who players she played. Bass Harry any woman that played basketball. She's like good in my book. But your dad your mom your uncles so I get where you get your athleticism and how to be an athlete. But how does that help you become a manager? What is it in your upbringing? That's that's going to help you in being a manager. Yeah? I think Speaking of Tallahassee in that town it's just shaped who I am and it starts with my mom and dad and and it and it talks about people the right way being honest being humble. It's not about me this whole process. It's about the players about this organization. I'm just going to be a small piece of the puzzle just like I was as a player That's all I want to be. A manager is a guy that if Attila's facilitates winning that leads this group that that you know continues to motivate impress onto the things that I believe in and so as a lot of those qualities of respecting Each Other and building that trust and building relationships. There's the things my parents emphasized and staying humble and and the great moments right because there's your one loss away from being Komo especially in a market like this so. Theo had a conversation with you back in your playing days in Boston. How how much did that change the person that you were and the person that you became at that point in your career the honest conversation about maybe the perception of you at that time? A may have been the most important conversation of my career and a turning point for me if you look after that It was really all uphill after that With with the winning and who I was when I started to pay attention to and the attributes that I started to notice and others and how they feel. Those are the things that I noticed after. Theo told me About my reputation and had that tough conversation and I'm so thankful for that I think sometimes we always want to be positive in warm and fuzzies for him to tell me that A and I became a free agent so there was really beneficial for him than just being honest and open. He could have not had any conversation with with me but he chose to give me some some some true open honesty about my reputation. I can't think Enough for that Is a big turning point for me? Something started to take notice of just how I treated other people and made sure I tried to be positive in anything that I did not that I don. I don't feel like a super negative person but just being aware of my presence and I love how you brought up in your press conference at the whole GRANDPA Rossi images overblown the behind the scenes. You had some tough conversations as well whether it was with John Lester or maybe some of the young guys so without throwing anyone under the bus give us an idea of what the toughest conversation is. You have had to have with teammate. Oh boy yeah I mean there. There's There's a small story about Anthony. Rizzo and I In Pittsburgh where His first at Bat We're bases loaded against a pitcher that I thought he should have a lot of success. Off of we'll just say and And he rolled over and into a double play and we scored run one rice the first pitch and wrote over And we and scored a run and he came by backed by and sat next to me and I guess I was really quiet. Prompted him to say what he got was wrong with you and I just Kinda like what's wrong with me. I'll tell you what we want to hear from me from using you're telling me you were focused during that at bat and you gave you were locked in because this guy this guy through your first pissing and you wrote over a double play like you're better than that guy. There's no way you just getting getting your an RBI. And just kind of probably more than I should have gave him a little bit of a tough love and luckily for didn't punch facie listened. He listened. He listened to the criticism. I was actually given and Next to he at home run into in your home run and he rounds bases and he comes in and starts yelling at me and I was. Hey Buddy if you need me to motivate you like I can. I can be a jerk every day. Trust me So yeah just some of those things. I don't know if there's a tough conversations just those things when you see down the wrong way and you see a lack of focus just to make sure you call that out. I mean chores and I just early on his career when he was catch and some things about his body language on the field and And how we get our butts kicked and he was catching and Just went up to him as he came up like. What's wrong guy like I can do nothing right lane? Well One your body. Language is terrible. Everybody's the whole team is looking at you like you're the one that's representing this group and and you've already given up and you know just just some choose my words right but I know that I care and there's passion and I think that goes a long way. So at what point in your playing career because when you're a player you WANNA play. I mean we all get it. We've we've all been there. You're not thinking about five years line. Ten years down the line. At what point did you say I do? Have the best seat in the house whether it is as a catcher or is it on the bench. At what point did you say? I think this is something that I could be building on it and I'm going to start taking advantage of this. I think I think just I think we yeah. You're right we all WANNA play. And that's a that's a tough balance but be comfortable with your role knowing my role especially when I was year Just catching John so I only I the bench four days and had to find something to do and paying attention and how to contribute in that way. That's all I WANNA win. So a finding you're finding your role in your voice From MMA bench position was important to me and so Just looking at the game how I can help out how you can you impact. How can you influence guys on what I'd learned and how to have that Impact guys especially the younger. We had when I first got here. So that's how I looked at it as is how can I help us win and facilitate winning through everybody and teach them the lessons that I've failed on help guys out make those same mistakes. Everyone likes to joke that. Espn is like the training. Ground for guys that want to go on and Make the next step but truly what is it in the preparation as an analyst? That did prepare you. Were you looking at it in a different way for the first time I think You start to dive into the numbers more than you do as a player right and that was a little bit of my front front office role. I got to see some of that stuff to your diving in What strength and weaknesses are of the team are and how the match go when you studying for a game and things are going to talk about the game you get into background strengths and weaknesses of the pitcher and the hitters and how.

And I do this so and you're my son that that's not GonNa Start the holidays. They outweigh. You cannot start out by saying unfortunate. Why would you say that? Hopefully that was just Joe. I was just trying to be funny. Okay thank goodness so it's thanksgiving. It's Thanksgiving season so today we just want to thank everyone. Thank all of our listeners. Know guest today just as talking about Thanksgiving and some sports and have a little bit of holiday. Cheer Jason Do you like to? I love Thanksgiving thanksgiving good football good food off school. Great Vibes being passed around love Thanksgiving. It's everything I'm all about. What do you like that? We do for Thanksgiving nothing necessary in particular. I just like it feels like everyone's always in a good mood on Thanksgiving. Don't have to worry about school. Turn school all that week. Yeah Watch football have good time. That's part of why I love it. It's so simple back right. Yeah it's not and we always do Thanksgiving on my side of the family and the Kuczynski side of the No. There was one year where we didn't. Oh that's right when you're you did go over in the bears in Green Bay. And how was that? It was really good. Actually it was no offense intended but it was really fun. Yeah well so here's the difference on my side and the Kuczynski side. I have nine siblings plus spouses plus nieces and nephews plus aunts and uncles so we tend to have like forty it can be over forty sometimes at Thanksgiving and it gets a little crazy. Doesn't it it doesn't. It does a little crowded. I wouldn't say a little crazy. Yeah it definitely gets crowded and so our tradition started and. I don't even know if you know this but my late mother Grammy Joe. We always called her grandma. Joe Joanne Kozinski she and her sister Mary used to trade off hosting Thanksgiving and aunt. Mary lived in Park Illinois. No oaklawn I'm sorry almost Oak Park Oakland Illinois and my family grew up on the northwest side of Chicago and so we would rotate each year. Whose House we went to for Thanksgiving and so now fast forward. I don't know thirty. Forty fifty years later we rotate between some of my siblings. So the next generation we take turns hosting and I love to host. I hate to host well. Preparation wake up and immediately. I'm thrown it into the battlefield decision to clean up as well. What's the battlefield? Why wake up? I got on stage. It's like I get a second. Can you move the table? No seriously I mean God forbid I like wake up instead. It's like you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA do this this and this and oh by the way you're not getting paid for it you're expected to and don't stop stop and you're about to say this is the price you pay for. We pay rent. You have to do know I mean if you don't have the decency to give me like forty five minutes to wake up. I'm clearly not going to really enjoy hosting too much so thank God. We're not I was. This is so hosting next year. Maybe I won't come home. What come on. This is so typical. I'm sure many of you have these same conversations with your teenagers so you could. The Jason is seven ten inches also. Pay Their teenagers to help them. So what? I'M NOT GONNA pay you for helping out around. The house filed disaster next time. So you hate when I host because there is just a shitload to deal okay. Another former hosting and I don't mean this in a bad way but it's not like every all forty people come at the same time so sometimes like you you always have talked entertain. Whoever comes early right true and it's I mean it's always a different person every time so it's not like you expect someone to come early. It's just like and then like it's kind of awkward. 'cause it's like if you're GONNA come twenty minutes early. It's just me downstairs watching the bears game I can't really entertain you like twenty. I know it and then you're upstairs setting up heads upstairs. Setting up right. God knows were Shane Style are. It's like you can't talk to family. I can talk to family. I don't know if I can do it while watching the while watching the bears game see. I'm with you though. I like to watch the game. I don't like doing something social during the game because then you're not really watching the game while doing something social during the game. I just not with family. Yes go ahead and say it just not with not gonNa say what family so our tradition with my family the Kuczynski family. I love it. I absolutely love it because we have such a big family and a couple of years ago. We're at the point now where we're moving furniture out and putting extra tables down and a couple of years ago what I did was I did Numbers on all of the seats. And then you head to pull a number as to where you were going to sit. I'm quite sure that didn't sit well with some people because people like I got a good seat last you. Where did you sit? Who Remember but all I know is that I felt like we had nice conversation. I was pretty close to the food. My side of the table got called to go up first. So that was really nice. I was positioned by the TV which got turned off about ten minutes into dinner. But no I got a good see last year. And it's probably the only thing about hosting you can rig the seating no you can't. I DID LAST YEAR. You did not see you went through and look to see what number. I wanted you kidding me. But you didn't know who was going to sit around you like which cousin or uncle or which enter which siblings. I I like that. I'd like because it forces us to talk to each other. It's also bad things sometimes lie. I mean if there's like forty some people there it's like you have the same level of motivation to like like they're okay. Oh there are certain people like I'm not saying anybody in particular but in any scenario when you're in a room with like forty some people there obviously certain people like you connect with better Churchill and there's some people that maybe you'd rather like be more interested to talk to you than others shrill again like not saying anyone particular that any scenario lunch at school. It's like okay. I'd rather sit in between these two people because I feel we're going to have a nice conversation right rather than these people were. I think I'm in struggle to carry on a conversation right so I don't know sometimes you never know though unless you actually have a conversation with that person you walk and you go casino. I never really talked to so and so before then it was actually pretty cool. But you need to understand. All the variables are going into account for Thanksgiving dinner. You have food priority. Right number two alcohol. Sorry in the morning. You're only seventeen number two. Obviously you're positioning okay. You don't want to sit right in the middle of the Big Table. Damn while you're not getting up to use the bathroom right or to get drink right or one of the first people to get food right and if you're at the far end of the table and you go up and that food's already been completely decimated. That's another issue right so number two seeding very important okay. Number three who sip is incredibly important. Trill because it's pretty awkward. If it's like Thanksgiving and like you feel people around. You don't WanNa talk to you or vice versa. You know it's like come on but if you on the flip side if you've good seat by people like you really want to talk to cough cough not share Stella. Oh it's really nice because that would be his siblings refreshing. It's Yeah you didn't want people to think I was talking about one of our cousins now so you get to enjoy the food. You'd have nice conversation. Okay what's next They go number four another reason. Why matters like how close your the Food Right? Odds are. You're going to finish eating sooner. So then you can go back in the basement can watch little more football than you would have if you can escape escape. Yeah but you have to help them. Pull the clear the tables have I ever helped with that okay. This is going to be known and listen. The guys help most of them. Okay and you're going to learn that. Your Dad helps stay tuned to find out how goes so. You will start helping next year. You're going off to college. I'm telling you you're going to make want WANNA come back. You will make me not to come back. Y'All come back own carello you can eat. Buffet looks very enticing. For Thanksgiving Nicer to say so. You will graduate eventually from the kids table. No I haven't been at the kids table in three years and if I'm at the kids table this year is going to go down but it said Uncle Tins House. There's not going to be much of a choice and there's not going to be much of a choice. There's there's like six seven tables so everyone you know it's going to be what it is. It'll be fun it's going to be great we will. We will always okay. Can I just say that the kids table argument has been going on for probably fifty years in our family? The kids table settle the plate of food. Going my car and enjoy nice Thanksgiving dinner by myself easily. We all all of us have been at the kids table as adults and it drives US crazy. So it's hard tradition the series because the kids are actually growing up. And then what else do we do? We do the we do. Oh the wishbone thing. If I'm hosting we do the over tradition. It is but it was cute. Cute little never works. Well got it. Which of the White Sox win the world series every year. That's happened even finish over five hundred. Not even within ten games of being close five hundred so won't be participating in that wish for every year. Okay tells me favorite food my favorite. I actually like the Turkey. And the cranberries lives really really unique. Well what should I say? I like sweet potatoes. But I'll tell you what's good that we always have at Thanksgiving is like the Salad. But it's not really salad. It's like Caramel apple sales. It's got like the marshmallows Apple Salad and Kathy. That's really good. Yeah that's what else do this episode posted between now and then you're listening. Please make that this year. That would be an can't be okay because one year we'll one year just didn't show up at Thanksgiving that a complete mood derail. That was terrible. What else do you like?
