Unfortunately david you know. Have direct access to pam. Shriver the way you be having to use secondhand quote also from this celebrated article but she said the sad thing about the whole thing to me was that besides the physical and emotional harm. That was done to monica. One of our great champions. Is that this guy in the end. Good exactly what he wanted. Steffi graf won the next four slams off to monica seles with stabbed Instead of schools did return to the tour in ninety five and one one further slam the australian open and ninety-six something.

It was where. I felt most safe and mesa secure..

A Tang into some of the stuff that we may have talked about on the previous that we did as well are you guys seem like you know me so well I. Do. Now Want WanNa. Hear it from you. You've been getting so much press this last month because of the thirtieth anniversary of your Wimbledon final. Did this catch you off guard? Yeah, did really kick me off guard for for two reasons first of all that it was. It's been thirty years like I. You know. It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on.

Yeah, it's not what ends one guy from England that Chris Ghosn. He always puts stats on there, and so you know sometimes he'll you know bring? He makes me I tell him all the time. He keeps me relevant, but he comes up with these stats out of nowhere in plug. This one just kind of took off so I think because they don't have one with him right now. It's you know it's.

"steffi graf" Discussed on Hall of Shame
"You know I grunt getting into bed I doing anything correct. An interview after her retirement. She was asked if she ever regretted the grunt. and. Grunts was hate. They're even asking her about regret. Yeah, unfortunately, I was seventeen years sold, and I was like. Oh, I'm make sure everybody likes me. She said when she was young and still coming up. She wanted to please everyone, but she realized she wasn't out there to please people. She was out there to win. And then once I realized that you know you got to be an individual. Whatever it is, whatever makes you win that point? Point and for me as part of my game, and this is who I was, and you know some people liked it. Some didn't but I wasn't out there to please people. I was to win tennis tournament. Yes, girl let a girl grunt. I wish that I was like so sure of myself as Monica was. Yeah, like you know in mean girls, they're like ice. How Regina George Wearing army pants and flip flops so I wore pants. And that was me. That's probably still me. Good for her for sticking to her guns. Sure I'M GONNA. Say Monica Seles, is a Billion Times Cooler Than Regina, George because she's a nice little. Yeah I hear you good for her for being like this helps me win. This is my game. Don't tell me to change it. y'All shut up to add to this gender nonsense around the same time that the grunting controversy was peeking, she also rolled up at a tournament within you short haircut, and at that point, people were like she's like the aggressive boy grunting away. It's totally that felicity. Keri Russell Shit all over again. You know what I mean. Anyway so this young woman is dealing with all this nonsense, and at the same time she's dominating the tennis world still winning and being number one in a very competitive. Including the also dominant Steffi Graf Kudos, love it so in January nineteen ninety-three sell us. GROFF faced off on the court of the Australian Open at that time, sellers had taken the number one ranking from Graf and the tension and competition between them was very high like they were the top rivals in women's tennis.
"I'm Saying Goodbye": Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis at Age 32
"Don't know if you share my sentiments. This was news. That is not remotely surprising. We were all expecting this. I think Most people had already pre filed. The Maria Sharapova retires column and yet I gotTa say it feels you know an hour into this but Feels a little weird definitely I. This is not like Last time we had big Sharipova News at SL which was of course it. Two Thousand Sixteen and that that was a big surprise. This like you said I think we all saw it coming. It was a matter of when and not if so for to be now is I think a pretty normal timing given whether she's going to play Indian Wells and Miami probably would have kick started her into the French and Wimbledon and then sort of. You're playing out the year at that point so for her to call it quits after all. Cheyenne this little gaps. Seems to make sense but I don't know what do you think? Yeah ranked ranked three seventy three. Something had to give here. This is a five time major champion. Who you did not think was going to play the wild card game for very long. I I guess I would perhaps suspected she would have played Indian Wells. It's an event where she's had success. It's two hours from her home in southern California she would have gotten a grand sendoff But you know this. This is I had these two competing instincts with Sharipova. What what do we know about her? She is fiercely. Driven fiercely competitive. She is and always has been. I think we can talk about this a bit later. The consummate professional and those are really dueling instincts when you're ranked three seventy three and not playing it anywhere near the level that you're accustomed to Part of you probably says I can fight through this. This is just more adversity. I can overcome. I'm better than this. I just need to work harder. I can get my body right. I can get my mind right. I can get back. I don't WanNa go out like this and another part of you says surely I can't have this indignity. I can't be losing round after round early. I'm not seated so I'm playing tough opponents. My Body's giving up on me so I think you had and they came from the same place but they're two very different ways to react to to the same core instinct and today she said enough is enough. I mean I think you're right that You know February is a strange month in tennis. And I guess you know we're we`re. There's no perfect way to retire from the sport and we see even within tennis players very differently. Some players go on this goodwill tour and some players like Caroline Wozniacki says look. I'm going to pinpoint this as my last event and go ahead and prepare your tribute reels. And I'm GonNa play this event knowing when I lose my last match. That's IT and Sharipova. We've seen other players. There's players do this as well. Sharapova pulled us out of the blue and it's it's a Wednesday and she's not at a tournament today And retired in her own way. So I don't know I mean the other. There are a number of questions that stem from this whole conversation and jump in any jump in anytime here. I mean I think the overall question when a player retires as we assess legacy I don't know particular bullet points. Jump out at you Jamie. I think I think highs and lows complicated legacy Of course is going to be attached to share over The the craziest thing I think if you look at the timing now she's ranked three hundred seventy three which says absolutely nothing about her career but to your point. I mean she was at the point now where she was trying to come back and she's nowhere even near the top one hundred You know not even winning any matches and it's it must be really hard for her honestly to you know given all that she's accomplished. I think we said thirty six. W titles obviously the five Grand Slams all these rivalries quote unquote particularly with Serena Williams which is also another interesting conversation to have but I think it was probably getting difficult for her to continue to be you know struggling and Her her legacy given you know the the MELDA NEOM and the ban will always thou always be part of her story? Yeah I think you're absolutely right and today should be happy day. Celebrate a five time major champion. I mean I was looking at her staff and I think we forget how good she was for for a variety of reasons. I think to the casual tennis fan. They were misled by two. One is the head to head with Serena that you reference. She beat Serena Breakthrough Center women. Final Two thousand four and then she loses whatever. The math twenty two is the derived. So lose eighteen nineteen matches to Serena Williams And I think that to the casual fan that we say rivalry. And then we sort of have to amend that to say with a lopsided rivalry which might be an oxymoron. The other thing about Sharipova that I and I wrote about this that I think is a great Sort of misleading bid about her is she had this regal disposition and she endorsed product after product. And it was very upscale. And it's Evian Cole Haan I remember you. I remember walking in New York and seeing her on three different billboards for three different upscale products. And there was this or of elegance. She was selling herself as much as she was a brand. She was selling sort of cosmopolitan posh elegance in yet. The tennis was. I was called her sort of tennis. Gym Rat I mean. It was not elegant tenants by any stretch and Jud admit to that and she was in her own way your own six foot one inch which she was a grinder and she was not what you call an athlete. He wasn't a graceful mover. She did not play graceful elegant tennis and I always thought that was really to her credit. That you'd see her on the back court and she'd be doing her footwork drills because she knew that was an area to improve and she would be working on her serve which always gave her fit in part because of the shoulder injury and she would grind out matches and she would win tough matches. She did not. This was not the female Roger Federer and I think tennis fans of course know that but I think casual fans see all of this aura of elegance and assume she played that way and that wasn't the case at all I mean the the screaming grunting grinding sweating. You'll brushing the hair that had managed to her forehead. That's the Maria Sharapova on the tennis court has an athlete And I think you know again I want to just this should be a day to give credit to someone who had a tremendous career and five majors. Yes but thirty six titles almost forty million dollars you got to number one. I mean this is really an a-list career and you know she had the misfortune of playing. At the same time Serena Williams and there was a lot that went into that relationship beyond the tennis. That probably did not work to Maria benefit but you take away. Cerita you take away. Venus Williams seven majors. Maybe Justine Henin. Maybe Kim Clijsters and I think it's very easy to make the case. Marisha published one of the top five players of the Post Steffi Graf of the last twenty five years and tennis so this is really a remarkable career. And yet as you mentioned if we're going to talk about her honestly. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Which is you know a a doping ban. I thought a very clumsy handling of the doping ban. I thought it was very out of character and off brand of her to have been so sloppy. Not just in the violation but then in the aftermath and how it was handled and some of the the the the press conference that we referenced and she was never the same player after that and you know co correlation is not causation and may simply have been that. She was a little sport and she was in early thirties and players get older. We see this on not just in tennis but in in sports in general I mean thirty two big number in in women's tennis but it was not supposed to end with a doping band and a ranking that drifted deep into triple figures so overall macro great career hall of fame player but there is a tinge I think of bittersweet. There is a little bit of disappointment. That This wasn't the way this hall of fame career was supposed to be a gift. Compare what we saw a month ago when Caroline wozniacki is out there on the court and our families there and she's toasted and all of the players are making tribute videos and were. She's crying but she's saying I'm not sad and she does. I mean I talked to her the following day. She was all gussied up because she clearly had been doing the spots around. There's definitely a difference of a decision on your terms and decision that was made based on your body and The time of your career. You know it's it's very different in comparing into. What was the Yankee especially given those? The Yankees recent title in Australia just seemed very full circle for her to do that. this again is random but also very expected. I think one of the things I always sort of liked about Sharipova was Her personality in in two ways. I think we talk. You talk about her on the court sweating grinding shrieking. I mean everyone. I think even if you're not a big tennis fan you know share Provo. Because maybe she made you mute the TV while you're watching a match and that's something that a lot of people will probably joke about but you know she worked hard in the court she was always like fierce and and you know a competitor for sure but she also you know. I remember processors and and interviews where she's actually has a very great personality and and you know quite opposite of that fierce competitor where she could be funny and she was actually Kinda Witty and and You know there was a a side to her personality. That was very likable. When most people on the court probably saw the opposite so overall she's a huge name. In this sport she's one of the handful that transcends just tennis you you mentioned her and she needs only one name There's only a handful of those type of athletes so I think She will definitely be missed. I think we're fair to

Go ahead we often I like to do is I'd like to give you the option of choosing things as we know we once table the Navy skype penis which we still haven't gotten back around to eventually will will eventually return to the subject of the Navy skype penis. I'd another one which we could do about a person who set of baby bird to an animal shelter via Uber because he was too drunk to drive who saved us. We will table that like the Navy skype penis it will come back at another time and we will ask this question because <hes> the Atlantic League have became the first American professional baseball computer. Call balls and strikes has happened last night at their all star game <hes> the plate Umpire Brian Debris our he wore an earpiece connected to an iphone in his pocket.

I would change to this robotic strike zone today I would have it installed at Fenway Park for the dodgers game tomorrow night night if I could the Umpire's union but it was on the show today but recycling about how hard it was to get a drug testing program past the empires are going to fight this but it is ridiculous to me that the the strike zone in major league baseball is determined by how big or small the umpire is. They should have an automatic computerized strike zone in if it was up to me what happened today I never agree with your baseball takes except for this one degree good tomorrow anymore. Robots generally in baseball we should but they brought needs to be there because the strike zone changes so often doesn't matter who's behind the plate. It's so even if they're big small doesn't matter they'll call an outside strike strike and then a ball on the very next pitch when exactly the same right now.

I bet you but evil no volume Carol Brady goes no dice. She's like, don't you tear us maternal instinct's against me. I am just as indicative and unreasonable as Amen that was recorded just yesterday, the funny or die studios in Hollywood where I visited a chat with Jonathan van Ness and Aaron Gibson the series creator and director, she's like don't you dare us. My maternal instinct's against me, I has been dictated and unreasonable as any man. She's like, don't you tear us nine maternal instinct's against me. I am just as reasonable. And I am just as and unreasonable as any man. When I sat down with Erin Gibson, and Jonathan van Ness after the shoot I ask van as how making time for gay of thrones works logistically with all his commitments for queer eye season. Seven shows the last season, I was in Atlanta shooting queer eye. So I would shoot queer eye Tuesday through Friday and get on a plane, and then come here do gave thrones get back on the plane, go back to Atlanta. And now this time I have said spoke to New York, and so Sunday mornings, I get up and I pop on a plane, and I get here, and then I come to show with everyone. And then I go home, and well, then I pitch all my jokes before everyone else gets pitch their jokes, which is really nice to me. So everyone's could stay up till midnight. And I tap out at night. And I'm like, oh my God. I'm so tired, which is the joke. But really I am. It's a lot like. We need you to be amazing on camera dies need to go to bed. What is it? Like when you guys are watching it is it like being Theodore everybody's talking about to the screen like, there's just constant banter. You making knows what does it sound like this new method where we're doing like one of our people will yell out the number. So it's like a scene one seemed to because we're all kind of writing while we're watching it. So there is some healing of the screen usually from me, but we turn the lights off we have snacks. And we right. We really are. There's a lot of typing are other tradition is that we always have ten degrees. We've had ten degrees every single year and shocked. Not sick of it. There are so many recaps of game of thrones. And what's amazing to me is how quick and how thorough they are? And when you're thinking about how you were going to both recap and episode and then do something. That's funny. How do you figure out? What is I? Because is it important that you get the story. Right. I and then at the jokes are what order they come in. I think it's always about serving the purpose of how Jonathan has regurgitated this show. So in my mind is always funny. I, but I do want this to be a cheat sheet for people who maybe don't watch game of thrones. And maybe one not feel like they're an outcast in society at work. So they do know what's going on. But first and foremost, it's about making this show funny, and allowing Jonathan to shine his very specific and hilarious light on a show. That is the most McCall thing on TV. The other thing that you guys seem to be really intentional about is making sure that you have the most latest pop culture references possible. So. So you just did an episode where you have a mayor Pete reference. There's a reference to the Boeing seven thirty seven max is that always like what happened that day that we can incorporate how do you think about what is and is not funny or worth including well, I have to say, you know, in in the episode from last week. It was all about Martina Hingis. This battle had more downs than Martinez. Hang stories his career. So I things are going great. She wins drilling open in ninety seven. Well, then she screws up at the French Open by serving underhanded, stuffy graph and gets booed off the court. But then she goes on to the lay at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, then she just positive for snow, which she denies. Let's what they love about. Our writing room is like it's really we are going to we're going to get an each we're going to go big. We're going to go niche gonna go. Now, we're gonna go eighty six we're going to go ninety four you don't know. Also, we might have a revolutionary war thing. Like, you just don't know what you're going to get last night we joke because we couldn't remember if we'd already made it, and it was a nodding hill reference, and it was. I'm just a dragon Queen standing in front of a murderous asking her to surrender. So how does the Martina Hingis reference come in? Because it goes on for like, two minutes. It's all of Martinez, tennis Greer the ups and downs. I forgot that she got popped for drug offence. There is a lot of research and detail in your Martina hanging story, we'll happen. There was as we air was trying to figure out a great analogy for something that has a lot of ups and downs. And we wanted to get through the battle scenes quickly because it was just a lot of carnage is a lot current and all the ideas that were coming up for something to had a lot of ups and downs. Just weren't feeling quite on the gay of thrones brand win all of a sudden Martina h'angus's underhand serve to Steffi Graf in the ninety nine French Open just leaped into my head. And I was like it's Martina Hingis tennis career, which when anything sounds like oh my God. It's Martinez tennis career

"Hey, as you know, the Austin city council has approved the biggest budget, the city of Austin is ever approved one billion dollars a day after a few tweaks that included consideration of setting aside money to guard against possible tax increase caps before the change their minds, as you know, the state legislature is expected to pass a law that says cities cannot increase taxes above that eight percent marker without a public votes. The mayor's, you know, testified against that. He wants to be able to raise it above that without your permission. So what they did yesterday very quickly as improve a very big tax rate. So that they can prepare for state lawmakers making laws effect the city council next session. So in other words, we need a little extra from you. Because state law may may prevent us from getting your money in the future. So we want your money now. Oh, thanks for asking. Sure. You got it. We'll get into that in just a few minutes. So you have to do is ask but the controversy. She continues in Dallas Dallas police have taken a proactive approach after an off duty officer shot her neighbor in his apartment last week by mistake. Now, the they swiftly admitted that officer Geiger was in the wrong. They expressed their sorrow and compassion for the family and the victim. And they turned the case over to an independent investigation team. They also reached out to the family of the victim immediately. Now their approach has helped tamp down some of the anger in the neighborhood. There has been some protesting. But now we're waiting for a full independent investigation on what happened. What was she thinking when she went to the wrong place and pulled a gun and shot that man in his own home five one two eight three six zero five ninety Tammy all the title show. Good morning. Hey, Tammy warning. Okay. So my comment about doubt is is that it doesn't matter that he's black. Nothing to do with it. But she's still slightly wrong. And she needs to be punished to the full extent of the law because she is a cop. And if you feel like you wanna excuse what she's done, then maybe put your loved one in his place, and they're at home and opened the door and are shot and killed. I got you. I'm trying to put myself in everybody shoes here. Both in their shoes. I'm trying to to based on what we've heard which really isn't all that much. I'm trying to put myself in everybody's shoes here, Laura. Good morning on the title, Don show. Good morning. What's on your mind? You had something to say about the US open controversy and Serena Williams and the only. Yeah. I was there. I went. I'm a tennis pro here in town and splayed professional tennis. I played when Steffi Graf played for you probably know, Don prior. He's also a former tennis pro we've actually met I've met all the prior families of the dad helped raise the money for a neighbor of mine who got spinal meningitis at near the go go anyway. That's the whole story. I take first of all I went to go. See Serena the history of it. Right. So you guys, I don't know if you know, but she was going to tie Margaret Court for twenty four grand slam. Right. She has twenty three. Yeah. And so the crowd. It was amazing. The whole atmosphere was amazing, and they were really pulling for training. They weren't really against Naomi. And it was. So everybody really wanted a lot of stress as you can imagine Serena's coming back from you know, a baby year ago tweet to surgery after she had the baby with everything. And you know, obviously, Serena has some past things that happened in nine and ten that rightfully so I think, you know. Absolutely. She was in the wrong with some things that she's done with the things that she said, I think the the women's thing, I think it was it's more about what men can say and get away with and the ra-. I mean hell broke three rackets during the two weeks of US open. Nobody's talking about it. Okay. So it happens in what she's talking from a women's perspective is that she feels like that. They can't be as tough. Or is mean, or whatever is it. Now, I'm not trying to get on. Whatever whatever whenever men do that. They're outspoken and strong. But when women do it, they're hysterical and crazy, right? Right. Exactly. So I think that's where she was coming from. And you have to remember, she's a professional athlete you're out there. There's thirty five thousand people watching it's crazy atmosphere, and it's like the adrenaline going. And then she's going for tying Margaret Court. Now, the coaching thing the thing that gets me she wasn't even looking at him now. So that's on Patrick for coaching. But the penalty you get penalizes the player, which stinks, right? So he wasn't even looking and then she is what takes it very personally because she's like she's never been called in twenty years of playing professional tennis for coaching. So all of a sudden, she's lost the first set. It's tied in the second set. It's anybody's game. Now, all of a sudden she gets a warning for that. Now, it tennis a lot of times you can give soft warnings to both sides coaching. So right away he chooses. I give a warning when she's never had one for coaching. And then on top of that he could have said to her could you kind of the whole thing instead of not what the referee the job of a referee is to get in there. And basically try to keep things that day. You know, what I'm up against the clock here. I got what you're saying. That the issue that I have though is what about Naomi? No, I agree. And I know I don't have a lot of time. It's so there's so much to it. And and when I heard y'all talking about this. I appreciate you talking about women's Senate. That's wonderful. But I just don't think it's simply that Serena was in the wrong. There was a lot of things that went wrong from the outside in it looks like she has a star athlete. That's having a hang onto it looks like she's just having a difficult time ending her career gracefully. But this was the only thing that happened. I'm not judging by this weekend. She was just one weekend. It was one match. I know judge her the entirety of her career based on that one day. I just happened to be live on is really unfortunate that that is the headline not the winner the Thailand gone show, if somebody is suffering all the time with severe aching arthritic knees..

He he could no longer claim that as part of his identity. So then what do you have? You have a black hole and you know he already had problems in two thousand and eight with what was referred was the time is burn out syndrome. But on closer examination, it probably had a lot to do with how his his identity hard fizzle to dissolve to nothing and looked as though he was getting life together. Yeah, he was doing bike tools and Italy and Spain, and and I think in Switzerland. But it's obviously it was obviously Bill on shaky foundations to to some extent, and they have now the solid ground under its feet has gone again. And I mean, I think our offensive that he wasn't ideal. The worst possible circumstances Hollywood was involved in. It was yorker. So therefore, of course. Made headlines in one sense. I think not might be a blessing because it's been all of the German press in the lost three or four days, even launched home. Strongest come up to say that he's willing to help. So there is there's a sort of collective. Realization, this guy who's in who's in a pretty bad way. But you know, that's not to say that. Everyone will kind of club together and an lobby around. Around him. On we, we've seen situations in other sports and another. Whether in show business and anything, pull gas going football way.
