Personal thin. Yeah. I mean, if people don't like it, they can't they could fix it. I mean, they could. Yeah. No. They totally. Yeah. So this is an auspicious day in history. This the day after the fifteenth anniversary of Facebook. Yeah. Yeah. That too. Yeah. But more importantly, our hero is five years old today. I'm talking about. Who am I talking about Mary Jo? This is his the fifth anniversary. I I vividly. Remember our shows which and this went on for months talking about who might be the CEO who's the candidate. And they can't you know, Meg Whitman Allan Mulally eligible. Allie was the by my favorite choice. Former CEO at Ford a lot of people thought it was going to be him. Aleta change to Sacha who. But in the early days, Stephen eel up was kind of a favorite of many. And then Michael. There are so many came in acquisition. He was a the Nokia. What came back he originally for my suffering. He ran their office business. Right. Kevin Turner, even was bandied about at one point who was the seat. Oh, and a lot of people at Microsoft freaked out about that because he was not that popular with the employees mustache gun. They're gone. Yeah. Can we say with some certainty that they actually even though no one realized it at the time did the best possible thing to hire such such an adult? Yeah. I know other names sound so pathetic in hindsight. Yeah. Well, actually, you know, what the big differences between him and most of them is that they are either old guard Microsoft's, right, which is really what the company didn't need and doesn't need right or just old guard CO types, which you know. Yeah. Alan Mulally is not gonna really cleverly say, oh, he might. He might honestly the you could have been like the Gila meal of exactly like many of those that you describe just from outside the industry. Yeah. I mean, how do you put somebody in charge of Microsoft, who's never worked in tech? Yeah. It's like we have office in office three sixty five. It's like forty mercury kind of exactly. Of it that way. But you know, what I feel like when the remember the day they announced that in Adela was going to be the CEO which was February fourth. My first thought was oh, you know, what it's going to be the same old same old. I really did think that because he had been there already twenty plus years, and he wasn't a real household name. But I was thinking, okay. What's he really going to do to shake things up? He's been here. Too long. He's already kind of accepted the way things are. But that was so not true. Right. But you know, what nobody outside the company knew him. It was impossible. Fewer anyone else to have guessed the change agent that this guy would be in just the. His his whole life perspective that has permeated the company is something. No, one knew anything about you never would have heard about any of that stuff. If he was running bang, or you know, what an executive on the server team whenever he might have done. It. I mean, there must have people internally that guy. Guy. Yeah. Yeah. Him up through the ranks. And he he his last job. I was head of server and cloud. So they knew he had the potential to do this. Right. It's possible. There was evidence of this in his own organization at the time, it's equally likely that there was a, you know, I don't know if it took the form of an actual questionnaire. But you know, obviously, you go through the process of trying to become CEO, and you this obviously a back and forth occurs. And and I think you know, what is your worldview what how would you change Microsoft? You know, I that has to have been part of it. And I think they would just intrigued by his responses those kinds of questions. Yeah. You want here. Weird coincidence. So in a bomber had already announced he was leaving that was already done. And so I was doing I was doing a story about I was the last person to get Steve bomber to interview him. And so the what they did was a Hemi gore around an interview a bunch of people who have been his direct reports. And I talked to all different people in the organization and the last person they me talked to as an adult. This was in two thousand thirteen so the year before he took over, and I kind of felt in hindsight like it was an audition in a way not with me like making the choice. But how do you handle the press? Right, right. Yeah. So my personal connection to this is that my when one of my best friends at Microsoft was such Adele as speechwriter and award and when he became CEO. I thought I was like here we go baby I'm in and where it was longer his speech. You want to become such an speechwriter or did you just think oh here? No. I figured I have. Now, we have a confidence to the CEO. This is going to be amazing. And of course, all the people around him. Visit whatever we're out because. Doing this from the corporate times. Yeah. Chris Kappa cell is going to get some say in this. He was and they knew ward was completely leak you sieve to Paul thurrott. So. You cost him his job. I don't want to say anything. But. Thank you did actually don't. He ended up leaving Microsoft, but that nothing to do with it, and he was descended. He like many. He was like, yeah. I can leave. I've been watching PBS's, Victoria, Alba Queen Victoria, and it's kind of like Queen Victoria, where now you're playing in the big leagues you get. It's all different. You got a nice new robe to wears better hat shirt Queen Victoria's England is being like the Addams family where everything's kind of black and like wrought iron that was after out died. Yeah. But no, she. Well, I don't want to go to Queen Victoria's story because it's not really germane. But, but it is it must be or you know, or going from being a governor to the president or whatever it's it's a big. It's got to be an interesting transition. Handle it like superbly he took. Well, it was really because of what was his very first act. His first act was bringing office to ipad like that was one of his biggest before that. He is he killed the surface. Many. He did that to wasn't the very first thing out of the door. He says, oh, and by the way, we're not doing that. And I hate Nokia. Right. The thing. So I would say those are very well. The the ipad office thing was obviously a public thing. Right. So and I'm sure to the world that was a God. This is not you know, bombers, Microsoft wasn't. It wasn't. Didn't just invent shut up. Yeah. Decision to make that happen. And then the delegate to execute it. Right. But it's like when you go to prison. I don't know if you've ever been to prison. Please. Dominance right at the beginning. Right. Yes. The only ships someone, but he to instead of shaving someone he shift surface many. But that, but I'm not I'm kind of being facetious. But I'm not really because you he was very very much against it. But he was also very decisive from the beginning and say, let me get the hang of the lay the land couple of months. What do they call it? When you he had a mandate. Right. And I think none of this stuff was rise to anybody. Right. So his feelings about Nokia his feelings about surface many. You know, whatever I think these things were well understood why before each and when they hired him they knew they entered. I, you know, I this is honestly as much credit as we will. And should give such Adela for what he's done. I think that Microsoft institutionally deserves a lot more credit for understanding the position it was an how it needed to change? And that a guy like him was necessary to drive that change that Bill Gates coming back. Some guy who had been at the company for eighteen years, very visible. Obviously in line to be CEO was not the right way that they couldn't do that that one of the issues with Steve bomber is that he was the George H W Bush of that thing where he was going to continue the tradition of the previous guy. You know, they Microsoft mistake to be fair to bomber. He did for the company did very well. Of course. I didn't. I didn't mean it like that. But when you wanna make but the world has changed now. So it's years down the road. Everything's changed agree Microsoft is going to slowly disappear and Bill coming back baby. So yeah, let's let's something new I you have to give him credit for doing this. Most companies can't absolutely, you know, it's incredible. This is a case study in business school. Now, it is it should be. It'd be a rare thing, you know, you got Steve Jobs coming back to apple and you've got a Microsoft pivoting, basically turning its back on traditional moneymakers to go to the cloud compared to apple right? Apple was ready to go out of business. Steve. Dubs kinda came back. And then really came back, and he was able to institute great change at apple because there was no alternative they were going away, Microsoft had billions and billions of dollars and huge businesses and would not be disappearing for decades to come. But they still understood that they needed to make this change in made it, I it is super impressive. It really really is. Because they were on a path to become relevant over time. You know, not immediately the things things like that don't happen quickly. But for Microsoft to make that dramatic of a change when they made it is I I really think it's a it's a triumph. You know, the the people I wrote a I wrote a thing this week talking about looking back at five years, and it was very interesting to get comments on this on Twitter and kind of see where the line was drawn. Like there were most people were saying like what we're saying? Which is it's amazing. What he did? And you know, it's really quite an accomplishment. The people who don't like what happened are consumers? Right. And they're the ones who like I hate that. He's the CEO and he killed everything. I love windows phone in the band. Do that though. It's about one hundred people this province. Twitter. Is it amplifies? All it. Does. It does. If there were that mean, people using the band, and and windows phone is still be around. Let's face it. It's not the that's not the issue. I, you know, this came up most frequently during the windows phone, demise. Right. Because there is actually there was a sizeable user base. I realize it was a small percentage of the overall user base. But they were very vocal. They're like a lot of technology guys like people love the Amiga back in the day, or whatever they they felt really strongly that this thing that wasn't doing. Well, was so much better than everything else. And they couldn't understand why I still have you know, company would give rid of it saying, why do they kill the Amiga? That was the best thing ever. I'm a mile. But. But when you look at it pragmatically like he did it was as hard as it was terrible, as it might have been to fans of that platform, and the other things that Mary Jo guys you mentioned it was necessary. Right. Yeah. This this really was never going to be a focus or major business or whatever super successful. It. Just wasn't and. Yeah. It's hard that you have to separate the emotion from the Ideo. Real life stuff. Well, clearly, go was absolutely. I can remember for a decade talking about Microsoft, stagnant stock price, and we were, you know, people like John C d voire Eck, and I were saying, well, we don't get it Microsoft. I mean, they're they're doing so well, why is their stock price flat? Apparently, the market knew something. Point out that since the Dell is tenure in last five years is tripled the stock price. One of the things. I don't think peop- I think some people who listen to this podcast will understand this and say, yeah, of course, but other people who don't follow Microsoft is closely may not know this. The reason makes us stock price is up is because they did this really smart thing where they got Wall Street to stop looking at shrinking windows and instead to look at growing cloud, right? Even though the cloud businesses small compared to the windows and office business. They said, hey, look over here. See this commercial cloud thing or or making up. Go look at that. Apple has accomplished with its services business. It's the same thing tiny tiny business compared to I fun. But it shows great growth. Of course, it doesn't small, you know, the the thing that's interesting about, Azure, in particular. But I would say Microsoft's overall cloud business is generally speaking is that they achieve great growth, even after achieving great scale, and that is the Mark of something successful. So, you know, Microsoft's cloud businesses combined today are are bigger the windows, but Microsoft's individual businesses. The cloud businesses are our hair smaller than the the business that runs windows for sure, but windows, I went to San Jose always as you a year ago had seventy six percent growth, Azure, this past quarter had seventy six percent growth. Right Wall Street is complaining because it's not ninety percent growth like it was two years ago. Guys. It's a humongous business. Seventy six percent. Growth is crazy plus seventy six growth on a much bigger number that we don't know. That's the point when Azure was nothing one hundred percent growth year over year was God of court. You should be doing that. Seventy six percent this far in when was Asher announced in how long ago was that. It was a long time. Probably years ago. It's incredible. I know. Yeah. But that was one of the things that he and his team hit that was so smart because instead of every quarter, it was like Wall Street's looking at windows going in and it's starting to shrink, and, you know, here's Google over here with these cloud services, and you guys don't really have this. And they're like, hey, let's do this. Let's make them look at this number. We're going to say we're going to get to twenty billion by a set date, and they did, of course, made that right? It would be a fascinating thing to kind of examine the many many ways in which they tilted the conversation through such things as private clouds, which is just a renaming of something. That's the old thing we used to do. But now we're going to call it a hybrid a private cloud. You know, hybrid clouds that combine which are really for a lot of businesses of probably just simple on Prem servers that access some online service like anyone would in the twenty first century. But now that can be called a hybrid cloud, and Microsoft, they're the only ones that have a hybrid, cloud or cloud. I mean, it's it's it's a very effective form of marketing. And I think that's what impacts Wall Street, right me tamp. It doesn't it doesn't have to. I mean, it is an always. But in Microsoft's case, I think the reality of Microsoft's fundamentals was very strong during the Steve bomber years when the stock price literally went nowhere for like a decade. But since such an Adele has taken over this. You know, it's it's got that new Microsoft smell. It's it's exciting. And it's fresh in. It's new and some of it, isn't, you know? I mean, the biggest business they have always cracks me up more personal computing is comprised solely of old school businesses that nobody wants to talk about anymore. It's like windows XBox, you know, surface. Yeah. That nothing to do with the cloud for the most part. Yeah. The other thing he he did. Well, and it continues to do. Well, for them is the whole focus on partnering. Because know, the old Microsoft was doggie dog choking throats, cutting off air supplies, the new Microsoft be love everybody. Got a big fan of stuff. All right. We'll partner with everybody. We love red hat. We love us a p we love these guys you then turn around and ship that guy in the back, then I would applaud it. But literally the just embracing these people there. You in the shift? Do you even know? Yeah. Man. The whole focus on partnerships and being a good open source citizen, and all these things that it's like, how can you say? This is bad L A. It's great, right? Everybody loves it. It's. This is them. That's helped them a lot. Fisher. I yeah. You can't argue with it. Or I mean. I mean, I mean for us as journalists it's not as fun. It's more fun to cover companies when they're fighting than it is when they're friendly, right? Oh, for sure it's the only thing that's made the last twenty years. Interesting. Honestly is when these two like two or more of these companies face off against each other like some kind of God Zillah versus King Kong thinking too crazy Japanese movie, you know, we're like, it's awesome. Like, the the rare occasions like Samsung and apple in court or Microsoft obvious that the antitrust for any the antitrust, apple, Google, whatever. It's that's ups. Awesome. Qualcomm apple today is like that. You know, these companies deserve each other. It's excellent. Microsoft. They're like we love everybody. What's going on here? It's like a cult. I mean, like Microsoft execs from office showing up on an apple keynote stage and being like Keanu apple invented the sing in here. We are with office to support them. It's like, wait. What? I'm doing touch off his first on ipad. Yeah. As you say that's the but it's pragmatic. That's the word. I think Mary Jo has in the notes. And and that's exactly that's exactly what I that. If you had a describes guide one word pragmatic, you you look at stuff that I think previous leadership teams might have said God, you know, surfaces kind of going gangbusters. Let's just do the men even though it doesn't make any sense, or, you know, well, we did spend one Nokia Nokia. Like, why would we throw that money in the trash? I'll try to you know, let's try again. And I he looked at it more pragmatically and said, no, no, no at any said, yes. To things that you know, either wouldn't have happened or would have happened much much lovely under. Wrote off the overture. Acquisition thing. I think that happened before or I mean. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I think so, but okay. And you know, we want to be balanced, we're journalists here. So we've been praising this guy. But I got point out Mary Jo Foley. How many you've interviewed him, right? Yes. I haven't ever noticed your shoes. He never did. But you know, say he he wears some of the nicest shoes I've seen on an executive that. I should he bakes more money than almost every executive the United States bomber notice your shoes. Right. Can you? Remember that era of that little tidbit is kind of self centered. He wears the shoes. Is it doesn't use the shoes for kicking us? And he never wants jumped across the stage thing developers developers. Not he did not. But I will tell you it in the couple of times I have gotten to talk to site in the della informally informally the thing that impresses me about. This guy is how much he listens to an actually answers. What you asking him as a question? That's unheard-of. I will I don't like to interview CEO's for the re for that reason. They just don't answer whatever's on their on message. It's like there's three people. You don't wanna interview sports figures, we came to play politicians and CEO's? And it's because they're never going to answer your question. Right. I mean, he can be very sloppy. We've heard this. We've heard, you know, all the like pot high level talk from him and. What was it that that that can note the ignite k now, it's kind of a low point in my life. But. Yeah. Keep me saying on that. Which is scary. But yeah, that's right. Right. But but when you get him one through a little shade. I wanna point that out. No, no, she's right? Usually, she's the one talking me down from cliff. Okay. Well, it's not one of the things we can you know, we throw things off of each other. And so I will often go to Mary Jo and say, do you think this is a little too strong for Twitter, and she's like crazy? You know, you have somebody to do that important Paul. Yeah. That's right. I don't usually get to do that for marriage. I she's very even killed as you probably noticed. But yeah, the ignite that ignite thing, I literally ready to explode. I I've never seen that. I was just like my God. Is he going to say anything like anything like anything come on? Something took it. I took her side several times. And I said you can't do what you're planning on doing. And she's issues all she was really upset. I said you can't it just can't do that. And Finally, I stayed in. But you know, I think he's much better one on one. Like just keep like, he'll ask you something. He'll actually like wait to see what you say. And then he'll respond. It's it sounds so simple. But this is a sink. Yeah. Yeah. Publicly, I think we've broached the issue with him and his role. I think his strength in a public forum where it's like a trade show. We're going to go to build in a couple of months or we'll go to ignite again in September two. I guess it's Slater in the air this here, but he shouldn't come out. And keynote he shouldn't come out and talk for two hours. He's a little too robotic a little too light. I don't know how else he doesn't really seem to say anything of substance. But that type of thing is actually nice when you wrapping up, and you want a high level overview, and I think that's what he does. Well, he's done that in the past. And so I hope to see that. And plus there's a big draw for people to it's the CO Microsoft lot of people in those rooms are there for the first time and have never seen the guy live and they'll look forward to that. And it will keep people in the seats. Not that they have a huge problem with that for sure. But I mean, it's something for people look forward to instead of being on there for two hours. You come on for thirty minutes of easier for him. I think it'd be better for everybody. But he he does well at that. I would say. If you look at it. You you mentioned highs and lows here. So what are what are the lows? In my opinion. I think I think he I think he started off on a rough foot. I mean, he did what he had to do. Like, we said he was very pragmatic. But one of the very first things he has to do is lay off eighteen thousand people like that was like his first year, right? That may be good for those eighteen thousand people, but obviously it was for the stock price. But then everybody else. That's excess. That was the result of something that happened before you got there. Right. So, you know, it's like it's like when a president comes in and the economy's going gangbusters, and they kind of take credit for it. Even though the the things that impacted this happened months ago before you ever showed up, but when something negative then you always can point to the previous guides. Actually, this never would have happened to me. I just course correcting here. Yeah. If drama never comes out. He'll be blamed for that. By the people who think that will be the most amazing device in the world. I actually think he's making the right choice in keeping it back because there's no value proposition. That's different enough to merit at launching in. We know about it. So if it doesn't happen everybody like see look at that guy like he's holding back progress. And he's he's not daring, right? Microsoft has never publicly this products, right? It's pretty they can always point to that. But things get developed all the time. You know, our carmakers come up with these crazy shapes. They never see the light of day. No one's going to hold it over the head of the CEO that they didn't make a car that looks like a block or whatever, you know, because some group thinks that's an awesome, shape, or whatever it is. You know, it's a weird thing that we have to worry about that kind of thing. But. I mean, but, but every time something happens where we think something's going to be this amazing thing. And then either gets killed or folded over like Cortana is another one, right? They were so far ahead with Cortana. And then suddenly it's like, hey, guess what we're giving her much more of a backseat. Was his anniversary literally five years ago. Like this. It was February is Monday. What year was up before him Xbox One Fono was that two thousand fourteen I think it might have been. Was it? Hira low. Well, it's definitely a low. And and I mean that. How it came out? The launch of it was a disaster. That products should have done a lot better than it did and they've been scrambling ever since. Now, the one thing I'll say the process eight, but yeah, but, you know, their response to that defeat has been amazing and actually kind of parallels the whole Sachin Adela thing they've really not because XBox is now dominating the industry or anything, but they've embarked on such a gamer friendly strategy and are doing all the right things for the future that they've really set up XBox for the best possible future that it can have an I honestly that's been for me. Anyway, it's been kind of are inspiring to watch that would never have happened. I don't think if something bad hadn't happened. I so Xbox One was announced may twenty thirteen and released in North America in November twenty thirteen so year before so before that, okay? But yeah, that that's something that you have to think about with him to as I noted in my piece is when I think when he started as CEO at my guess was he's he was going to sell off XBox, especially because he seemed very focused on the enterprise, and then instead they doubled down on gaming during his tenure, and they promoted Phil Spencer to the senior leadership team. And it's like, wow. Even more of a while now because as of today, Phil Spencer's on a senior leadership team. There was no one on the senior leadership team that directly is responsible for windows. Right. I mean, the I in some ways, that's and of course, I part of it is just what windows is right. You can make a case because they have done. So with products like office, where there's a transition to the cloud that makes sense server does this with the online services like, Azure, XBox is going to do this with these ex cloud and other online services windows. Not exactly right. It's it's that's the one big product. They had from the past that doesn't have a seamless transition to make to this cloud. I our that might explain it. I mean, that might be all that, you know, all there is to it, except if you look at it through my stuff three sixty five right, then it's just a a bit player in something bigger. Right. But the other stuff in Microsoft, three sixty five the management. Stuff in the office stuff is far more online services base than windows as I mean, they're they're trying to service windows, like it's an online service. I, you know with mixed results for sure, but it's very much. You know, it's a it's a client platform. It's just it just is. I mean, obviously, integrates felling services. But is it? It's a different kind of thing. Yeah. I mean, the bomber error was about protecting windows. If you're going to kind of put it in a nutshell like everything every decision was about we gotta keep our cash cow safe and protected and under Adela that just got blown up, and it's a well, we have windows, but you know, what that's not our future. We're not the windows company anymore, and that's been something. He's made a point of of its since the beginning, basically. Yeah. We're going to talk about a major exception to this. But not unique to Microsoft, but just you know, we cover Microsoft, so we see it very much in our world. This company has focused on changing brands. So that Microsoft is the brand and that the. The things that were products at one point or whatever are kind of deemphasize, and they do that in different ways. They changed the surface logos on computers to say Microsoft. They changed the name of Azure, Microsoft, Azure, with office three sixty five is becoming Microsoft three sixty five it's not universal. But they've kind of emphasized this thing. And I think Microsoft is a brand. Is a good one. It's it's a name that people trust. What a slogan that make. Suffer you trust from me for the company employees love from track. Yeah. I like it. It's a and yet unique. Well, I think do you wanna talk about the senior leadership team or salts as it's no I do want to mention this. Because so many times we attribute decisions being made it at any company to the CEO, but three -ality is they have a whole group of people around them. And if you look at Microsoft's senior leadership team, this is like the inner circle of people who make the decisions, and and who the della looks to when he has a hard decision to make it's kind of interesting who's on there right now, we mentioned Phil Spencer is there and nobody from windows, so they have a gaming person. No, one from windows, the person who represents windows on this team is just joh- somebody who almost no one outside the company's ever heard of he's he's the guy who heads up office, three sixty five and windows, and an oppress mobility, insecurity, so he heads up a huge chunk of Microsoft. But he's. Kind of a hidden quiet player other big names on their you know, they've got Judson Altaf who heads up all of their commercial business, which is all their business sales. He's a really big name got three still there. He's one of the hold-overs who still their red shirts. Got goo- still doing the cloud in AI stuff. But yeah, a lot of these people are new who who they I mean, the one the one who you hear everybody talk about as being a big and positive influence on the della is Amy hood who is the chief financial officer like whenever you talk to people. They're like, yes, she's like gutting really taken a real hands on role at this company, and she's helped push through a lot of the hard decisions. So that's kind of interesting. The CFO is doing that. Right. Same ruth. Poor edit, Google is gap. Given a lot of credit as a CFO for full of end. Yeah. Yeah, alphabet. Yeah. Which is kind of interesting. I noticed that they're in their conference call I, you know, the one thing those folks all probably have in common, which might not have been the case with say as an SLT from ten years ago is that they are removed enough from the past Scott goes exception. But where they can look at these things and kind of a cold calculated way and say, well, how does this make sense for us as a company, whereas in the past I think they would have been an emotional thing around windows is the most obvious example. Well, we got to keep doing this. We gotta keep throwing resources at windows or adding new features to windows, every six months, or whatever it is. And I think, you know, today, you don't really see. And the, you know, a push for that for a top or support for that. Maybe from top. One of the one of the true veterans on the SLT, by the way is Chris cap. He's he's layer still. But you know, stock I was thinking, oh, he he's come up through the company how he did. But he runs this thing which is a big online engine now. And so that's that's fine. Chris cap is marketing, I'm sure Amy hood has had her effect not just on such Adela. But on the company as a whole, I mean, I don't know how she does things. I don't you know, we don't not privy to these private conversations. But you have to think there's you know, she's going to pull it. The giant parchment base spread chains. They look this is where the money's coming from. We got to be smart about this. And she was she was in Adel as chief financial officer. When he ran server and tools, so they have a long relationship. Dating way back. But yeah, it's it's been at five interesting years. And I think if he lasted another five which I don't see why he wouldn't I think it's going to be five equally. Interesting years with more crazy totally non old school decisions happening. Yeah. Yeah. And I I've not made an effort along these lines. But it would be interesting to kind of compare Microsoft when he took over to Microsoft when he leaves and then to do the same for St. bomber. And I bet what you'd find without really knowing is that the Microsoft under Steve bomber. Look, very similar. You know? I mean, there were a lot of rewards and things Microsoft's always kinda shuffled the Dax as far as what the businesses are. And all that. But I think St. bomber it was, you know, it it started as kind of that traditional Microsoft, we know from the past, and it, you know, they were obviously making pushes into new areas and so forth. But I bet Bennett very closely resembled. The old Microsoft, whereas I think this Microsoft's, you know, he we might not even recognize his company. It's a great success story. I think it's really. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Bravo. Let's take a break when we come back. We can talk about the the more down to earth daily gritty grind of a windows. Journalists agree. And twins. But first. Yep. I'll save that for your tip of the week, Paul. Yeah. I I actually asked Mary job. She was cool to me saving it for them. Because it is kind of a thing. But it's a thing. I think the word I've seen is cringing. Cringe taxi that's twin's coming up, but I word from what was it's hot. Now. I'm not talking about the worst sobbing next year. Sushi that hot stuff is hot. But I'm talking about what Sabi hot cloud storage. You know, people are really moving to the cloud. I mean, there's no question about it, every company Google, Amazon Microsoft hopping on that bandwagon. This is we just we're talking about it. This is the the trend of the decade. In fact, it's estimated that by twenty twenty five. What we'll be one hundred sixty three Zeta bites in the cloud. That's one hundred sixty three and twenty one zeros in the cloud. That's a crazy amount of data. And there's a good reason people are moving to the cloud in most cases, it's efficient. It's affordable. And in many cases, it's more secure than your on Prem storage. You know that because it's managed, you know, professionally. But naturally any company is moving to the cloud or is in the cloud. Now has concerns has legitimate concerns. In was Saab is addressing those with this -rupt of technology that's turning the industry on the on its ear when they created carbonate. It was these guys are super technologists. You should if you wanna ever just read about an amazing serial entrepreneur read about David friend going back to I think he was graduated from Yale and started Arp synthesizer coming. I mean, just fascinating guy. But he and Jeff realized that they could they created away which a patented to lay data on disks sequentially, not in blocks, but sequentially, which is faster more efficient. And it means it was sobbing. They did is first recarpet. And then they said we should do this for cloud storage in general, take the technology. We've we've really perfected over a decade and use this for cloud storage. And as a result was Sabi is eighty percent less expensive. Eighty percent and six times the speed of s three of the industry leader six times faster for eighty percent less. Plus, there's one tier of service is very simple. They do support the as three API's you already know how to interface with it. You already have all the tools, you need it works with everything that works with us three, but they have things S three won't do. For instance. They don't charge you for egress free unlimited egress. You don't have to know charge. They have a I think a category of data that is super valuable called immutable data that can't be changed. So if you're worried about ransomware or employees or whatever screwing your date up, you can designate certain data is immutable. And it's even more secure. That is fantastic. It's so well done it's hippo fenra and CJ I asked compliant, and they did something. They also learned carbonite they have something they all the worst Sabi ball physical drive, which lets you migrate PETA bites data's simply quickly securely and get up and running fast. I understand this is a new name to you. This is take you know, you're maybe not sure about this. Everybody knows Google Amazon, and Microsoft, that's obvious. I just want you to fourth name to the list. If you're looking for cloud storage, just at one more name you make the decision, although I gotta tell you the boss the CFO Ruth poor ads can be very happy. When you say I'm gonna say eighty percent for six times the speed. Goto was Sabi dot com. Click the free trial link down at the trout says a terabyte free for a month. If you use the offer code windows. It goes to unlimited so store a bunch of stuff up there. Really bang on it tested. And I think you'll agree with Saab as hot W A S A B, I was Sabi dot com. Use the code winners. I'm not expecting you to just say, okay Leo's said, so I'm going to do it. I want you to go and try it and compare it to the big three. And I think you'll see why we're really high on Sabi was soppy dot com. Enter the code windows, Paul and Mary Jo Foley. We're talking well, literally windows windows, seven more on the not the usual windows end of life. Yeah. But there's a hope. Well, this was kind of an interesting little tidbit that I found out this week. So he knew that Microsoft was going to offer these things called extended security updates for windows seven to business customers, not consumers and mostly large business customers. But we knew and we knew they were going to charge per device. That's what we already knew. But when we asked them last fall, how much are you going to charge? They said, you know, what you have to go ask your partner for your Microsoft rep. We're not going to tell you which made me think maybe there wasn't a set price list for this. But there is I've got I got my hands on the price list. And it's interesting because it's a lot lower than many people thought. Although if you have many devices that you want these things for it's gonna cost you, so if you're an enterprise customer in the first year that windows seven is no longer supported by Microsoft for free. You're going to be charged twenty five dollars per day. Device to get the get the extended security updates for the year. If you're on pro you're gonna pay double you're gonna pay fifty bucks a device and from there every year for the three years at this happens, and is allowed your cost whether your enterprise are pro is going to double so year, two for for enterprise customer fifty dollars per device to keep getting those patches, if you're I'm pro one hundred per device ear three if your enterprise, you're up to one hundred dollars per device, if you still want to keep getting these updates and not move off of windows. Seven windows, seven pro users are going to pay two hundred dollars per device if they wanna keep getting these security updates. If you don't do this windows seven isn't going to stop working after January fourteenth twenty twenty but you just won't get any security updates which is risky. So I had lots of people asking me like why is it so cheap? Like, I thought it was going to be millions of dollars. So I haven't theory about the poetry, Sherri. Yeah. What is your theory? It's it's low it seems low because it would be low. If this was something anyone could do. Right. Exactly if you as an individual could pay twenty five dollars years when the seven front of the year, a lot of people would probably do that. Anyway. But this is I have the feeling based on the wording. I went back and looked at their original announcement, which is actually pretty vague and pretty short. It's part of a bigger announcement. I looked at the little chart I thought about the the end you've got to quote, right? You had. I think it was you who got a quote from Microsoft, which was also delightfully vague at the basic gist of this is. You need to talk to you Microsoft contact like whoever it is. You're paying for your windows license is the person you're going to go through. And I think what most businesses are going to find. When they go through that person is a they never got the same with the pricing and be they're never gonna get it because they're not going to be offered it. And I think the reason the pricing is so low as it is literally because Microsoft is going to choose which companies can get us in which can't. And it's going to be the biggest companies and the net cost is actually going to be astronomical because of the number of seats, those companies might have I think medium size small businesses are never going to be offered this. Yeah. Because I think there are, you know, especially in the first year, I think there is some places might say, you know, this is actually gonna make more sense for this. This'll be less costly than moving to windows ten. So I that's my guess is that this doesn't represent some kind of a retail value of this thing because it's really based on volume. My guess was this is like an estimated retail price. Like, this is what you know. We'll if somebody says how much is it will say this price. But if you're a big huge customer with like a hundred thousand seats that aren't going to be ready to move. Let's make a deal, right? Okay. That's absolute that. So that by the way, that's true that that that's a fact. Right. So there's no such thing as a hard price for windows in the enterprise. That's why you don't. That's why there isn't a cute little webpage. You know, how how much does consta- dot com or whatever we can go and see the cost of windows consumers, pay a price for windows, but businesses played pay different prices. It didn't you know, Microsoft got into trouble for doing this with the PC makers. Right. Remember back in the day. This is the thing. Actually, they probably still do a form of this. Right. I'm sure the world's biggest PC makers pay less for a windows license to include a computer. Then do you know? Then does Bob's white box PC company or whatever. Yeah. Right. I my other thought was well one reason I don't think Microsoft wanted these prices out there is because they want people to think it's hugely expensive. Right. So they they want people. It'd be like get off windows seven isn't gonna cost me millions of dollars right or or it's low because they know many people won't be ready. And they would rather see them stay protected and take security updates than go out there like Cowboys and not take security updates and keep running it. I did your your notion of, you know, different companies with my pay different prices was I started considered this earlier. And I I was imagining some company seeing this and saying oh, great. You know, I thought this was going to be more expensive. Let's contact I Mike yourselfer up, and they come up with a price sheet for those guys that they push across the desk where it says, oh, no for you. It's one hundred and fifty dollars not twenty. You know? And and that's the thing, you know, there's a risk here. If the prices are different for different businesses that what we've seen is a price that doesn't reflect you know, what most companies going to say is see in a negative way. Yeah. That's a good point. So just to make really clear to anyone listening to the show. Most of you are listening to the show you won't be able to get this at. All right. You have to be a volume licensee of Microsoft, you have to be running enterprise windows, ten enterprise, preferably or Perot. You you have to be a big customer, basically. And I know a lot of people listening to this show were like small business or or or people who are like, yeah, I'm a mid size business. You you probably won't even be able to qualify for this. I don't think I don't know. Absolutely, not education at enterprise customers will be able to qualify for this. But I've had a few people reject me and say, you know, it's kind of counting on this. I heard you talk about it on windows weekly. And I'm like, yeah. But it's not for individuals. Right. It's not for you taking it and putting it on your home PC. That's not as this is four. Right. So this is this is a thing that pertains to bigger companies, but still it's I thought the prices were very interesting. And one hand, I'm like, wow. That could really add up if you had a lot of seats and the other hand, I was like it's not that. It's not that expensive. I'm not sure I had a notion of the price. Well. So the way they used to do this was under custom support agreements, which were very much written for a particular customer, and they could be millions of dollars per year like easily millions of dollars per year. That's why a lot of people were like, I better get off windows XP, you know, because I'm paying X million per year. But again, like you're saying Paul, I think it probably varies by customer like the NHS. Did they charge the millions of dollars per year to keep patching X P? I hope so. Yeah. It'd be less. Yeah. It's still kinda interesting the price doubles every year right now, if you go back to their original announcement last September October whenever that was it the wording they used the time was just that the price would increase every year. Doubling as doubling as an increase. There's no doubt about the. That's a big increase. Do we assume that three years is it? They've only talked about that. We've only seen that they can be assume that's going to be the end of that. Twenty twenty three. Yeah. It depends. How hard hard line? They are about this. I mean, X P they kept extending things because people aren't moving off. And I think they learned a lot of lessons from doing that. So yeah, I guess it would depend on how quickly people move and how many people are still on windows seven by twenty twenty three in. Maybe they'll reevaluate what the right strategy is. Then. Do you think it's fair to say they'll never have this problem again, essentially, right? The way that windows. Ten works is. You know, the support timeframe is shorter. They moved people on new versions and companies also eventually move up along to new versions, but I saw them I shouldn't. But I I assume windows ten kind of solves this problem. Right. Does X XP and seven will be these. Kind of unique major upgrading things because of the nature of the software at the time. Even if you're on windows, ten long term servicing channel, there's a cutoff date for support. And I don't anticipate them continuing to extend that they roll you next L TSE version when it's available right, right? I would think so I mean in in in the nature of windows ten is such that. I don't think they've changed it enough where this would be hugely disruptive from most companies. I think even as I say that it doesn't I mean? But it's you know, so many people say like when I when I wrote about this. The one of the big things on Twitter was are people still on windows seven. It's like guys. Yes. Like almost half of Microsoft's Windows installed basis. Dhillon. Seven I don't expect numbers. But it's forty something percent. And it's something like six hundred million computers. I know, and and the reason isn't all just because people are afraid of windows ten or because their apps aren't compatible. I mean, there are a lot of different reasons. People are on seven sometimes laziness, sometimes, you know, my hardware won't run it, and I don't want to buy new PC yet. I mean, there's lots of reasons for businesses it's tough to move. Tens of thousands of. As an individual. You know, it's like jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. You know, you don't you don't break something potentially that works. You know, you don't screw with it just as an individual right as a business, especially when you rely on special applications, I think about this all the time out in the world. I go to the dentist and they have this dental app. They use the x rays come up. They do scheduling on its special made for this business. I don't know what the compatibility requirements are. But I can assure you that the people that run this dentist office could not care less. What version of windows, this is they just need it to work everyday reliably no-one screws with that, you know, that is the case in businesses all over the world all kinds of different businesses. Just not screwing with something. That works is reason enough, not upgrade windows. I mean, there's there's also the training aspect, although it's not that's not as huge as it used to be with moving from seven to eight but still ten looks different. I mean, it, you know, if you have users who are like, I don't know where my cheese just went now because I moved to ten. Don't store your cheese in one drive. There's. Getty's, Azure for the cheese. It's we beg. If it's got the right long term servicing plan. Don't put the cheese in the data lake. Oh that would be missing. Cheeser my data lake. Okay. Never cheese jokes. Windows. Ten nineteen h one. The reality is mixed. Seconds on this topic. So there's another Bill last week. It added win thirty two apps to the ability to bring win thirty two apps windows mix reality. So I feel like, you know, I don't think windows mixed reality is taken off in a dramatic fashion. But, you know, by adding mixed reality capabilities to windows, they've made it easier for people to adopt the stuff, and you know, fi-, find apps and games. And all that. So it's it's it's not it's not like a negative of it's fine. They've certainly improved things since the initial release. There have been some big things in the mix reality world, and you know, the ability to see outside of the headset. One thing is kind of a big deal. Right. I mean, that's one of the weird problems whether you can walk into walls stuff. And so I think improving the application compatibility with the platform is certainly smart. So I'm not. So we're expecting that hollow lens rollout at mobile world congress right Mary Jo we are. And I don't know if you heard they are definitely streaming this. So that means we'll definitely be here. You will be here at eleven in the morning. I wouldn't here at eight in the morning, and we will because Paul is going to be in the auditorium. Well, that was a smart move on my part. But I I do love Barcelona. So you're they maybe all stream too. Yeah. Someone. So maybe we get you on after our stream because it's a Sunday morning for me at a I come in and do the radio show, but we will be covering that. We'll stream that live eight Pacific eleven AM eastern is at in February twentieth. That Samsung's event of it's you must be the week after. So it's Sunday. Yeah. It's six twenty four is Sunday. Are we excited? We think it's the whole lens to rate. So could be interesting. Three because they skipped to exactly I'd like to see how different it is. They've had a couple of years. They have four years. Yeah. Almost. Yeah. Says announced but so there's been three two. Up vamp it up. They've also learned a lot about the market which has changed considerably for years. Yes. I don't told you like the I don't know if they'll announce it or not, but they're working on the ability to just use your hands to interact with objects in space. So it will do hand detection, isn't that nine eleven to wait a minute using your hands interact with objects in space in so, but today, you really need a controller for that. Like one of the big things that hands for that. But okay. Yeah. I know what you're talking about. Nobody you know to grab an item and interact with it. I mean, it's it's mixed reality. Be real reality. Our our? But one of the well, but I think it's one of the interesting evolutions of McDowell is beginning they're going to be these JR. Remember, the gestures like they had, you know, we're going to do this stuff, and it's not precise enough, and so hololens like mixed reality platforms, eventually added controllers in the kind of funky looking in Spain know, they look like a Star Wars proper something, but they lot they give you away to interact with objects in a more precise fashion, and that they're actually trying to overcome that. Because obviously what's more natural than using your own hands. Since huddle ends is being pushed more and more as business device. A lot of these applications you're using it with their things like repairing something see you want to be able to see your hands work with it. Right. That just makes sense. Cool. So you can get electrocuted in virtual reality Di Di in real life. That's a good question. We're gonna find out. I hope. Twenty four so yeah. The twenty fourth eight AM Pacific eleven eastern and Mary Jo and I will stream it at Twitter TV slash live. We'll be watching the Microsoft event and commenting on it. So I'm looking forward to that be fun. Yep. And then there's build. Yep. We just did build. So what's new currently I've agreed to get a one note tattoo during build over. The course of this podcast somehow. Laura spreads Brad idea. Bradstock tattoo looking at me. He cries at the thought of meeting. He told you you had to. This is like, rich woods and may. And maybe some other people. I'm sure by the time I have one tattoo look like it's like the tattoo, but without less self-loathing. So now, it's a purple like this the purple like I'm wearing a purple shirt, you know, it's like a principal get tattoo. No considering it. Don't Paul, you know, they can't be removed. You do know that right where he gets it done. Dumber things under the influence of alcohol getting tattoo. I I have a twit tat to which I deeply regret. Yeah. Where is it some of my, but we'll see? I did it for a good cause for unisex raise a lot of money. But I still regret it. I would actually pay that amount of money. Not to have it right now. I don't feel that bad. It's I don't see it. That's the problem. Mike caboose, but my wife decides it every time she sees it. She has to say something probably not going to put it on my. But put it somewhere. You're. That's all I'm saying. Learn the lesson that I've learned. You got something. Why isn't that coming off? Yeah. So. But going to Seattle me. Thank you for changing the subject. Thank you. May six eight th which is a Monday to Wednesday. Yes, overlap slightly with Google. I o which is may seven Seventy-nine. Why why did they do that again for the first time now for the second time it is it worked? So. Well, last time they said, let's do it again. Registration opens February twenty seventh which is pretty soon. Wow. Yep. Wow. And they say on the FAQ on their website that the agenda will be posted in late February. But I don't think that means the session list. I think that usually gets posted much closer to the actual show. They're have all the talks, but. People will come and go before that, you know, what's going to happen. A edged IOT cloud. Will they talk about windows? That's the real question. It's sad that we've become a drink again. Yeah. I think I would think they would if they're going to do windows light, their chrome OS competitor. This would be a very good place to talk about that. I think so too mostly because bet just happened. And I actually think that wouldn't have been a horrible time to announce it Microsoft did do that special education event. I guess it was two years ago. Now were they announced surface laptop. I mean, I suppose they could do something like that. But I yeah. This seems like a developer thing, you know, the way Microsoft used to real things like this. Remember, they would go to the developers for while device makers. I if they had to developers next, and then they would kind of speak to the general public. Yeah. I think it makes sense. I would like to see them talk about like bringing more win thirty two apps to you WP. I'd like to see him talk about windows core OS, but you know, it it if passed recent builder an indication we may not hear any of that. Yeah. It's going to be a lot of cloud cloud. AI is not. Yeah. They'll be a giant book. It will have eleven hundred items Senate that they're not saying. Five of them will be sort of. Yeah. Sort of wind related. Maybe they'll surprise us. Let's get crazy. They won't. But yeah, maybe. Think about went to do windows weekly that week, of course. Oh, right. Right. It's on a Wednesday Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, rain, we're probably going to be I I mean, we would we would fly home on Wednesday. I wonder. Good. If we can switch. Abilities are there. But. I mean, it's cool to do it just because then you have all the fresh news. But we can we can see. Plus we have to see how they're going to handle pot. A podcasting at the event, which we don't know some also. Because of the time change though. I mean, it we might eleven o'clock might be right in the middle of everything. But yeah, we come up. We just tell me when when the once. Yeah. Yeah. We'll figure it out. It's not that far do some kind of a live thing there and begin. I don't tell Alex. Well, I mean, it's he just came in the door and said. It's it's months from now. It's fine. It is it's three months from now. It's three this is we this is like five months this year him not having to do anything special. Don't say that. For us. I mean for you. Yeah. For them that he's not special on a daily so special. He is so special. I forgot that Microsoft had a quarterly report your earnings. Yeah. Anything important to say there. It's just business as usual, really. Say. All. Oh, this is definitely stuff to talk about. Yeah. I mean, what the one thing I can took away from it was how everybody's been blaming chip shortages for earnings shortfalls, even though Microsoft and never earning shortfall. They did talk about chip shortages affecting things like windows and office great making that up. I'm not getting I think this is fake Intel process up. September until actually warned ahead of the holiday quarter that they had experienced an unexpected jump in PC cells modest jump was the term and they're scrambling to meet demand. You know, because you know, how it is. When you going to best buy all the shells Ramtane. No computers, anywhere. Nobody can buy computers. That's not sense. And the thing that's crazy about this is they weren't going to have trouble meeting the demand for high NPC's, which of the premium computers, the gaming computers that are high high margin that actually make money. The problem was the lower end stuff as if there was some wellspring of consumers that are like I just wanna Ford it all computer, how come the right? All these choices at best buy or wherever I'm going for this thing. I I don't think that ever happened. So PC sales fell last year. This isn't why sorry and. I was fascinated see Microsoft use this excuses. Well. I don't I don't I don't think it's real. I really don't these did across the board. I mean they used to slay. Why office consumer was down? They said chip shortages. They did because I was going to buy office. But I couldn't buy a computer. I I just don't it's nonsense. Yeah. Yeah. I even asked their head of investor relations. I said, so you know, how the windows seven upgrade cycle. Like, are you getting a lot of you know, kind of penguin from that or anything, and he's like, you know, there's this chip supply issue. Unlike we. Oh my God. That's amazing. So I was curious what you're going to say there because they were very this is I love this kind of thing. You know, we've talked about we've used the term chatter. Remember, you know to talk about pulling it information for various sources, you know, like we worked for the CIA or something Microsoft uses the term signals right Sentate AB hood during the poster earnings conference. Call said, we know that the signals we get from especially our commercial customers is that there is a healthy demand for the value that exists, and that is not the same thing as a healthy demand for windows. Ten. That's crazy. What's she saying? Here is nothing, you know. And so your question with the seven packs, right? Like, I'd be like, yeah. You know, what we think there's going to be a huge uptick in blow. No. He's just like, you know, you know, it's going, but I like I mean, I can't guarantee, but I really feel very strongly that this chip thing is nonsense, and that Microsoft is not seeing the uptick from windows seven to ten that. They were kind of hoping for. I'm kind of thinking that too. Yep. What can we blame? What have we got Intel says chips or don't play cod? That's it. No way. No way. Yeah. It was very it was a very subdued reaction to something. I thought it'd be like, yeah, it's going to really ramp up. So, but no this is going to be like. Hangover? These companies are like, oh, my God windows seven is support is ending. How come Noah told us this? Okay. And also the what was really up significantly in the quarter was surface. Which isn't too surprising, given how many products they launched in the last part of the year. They had the surface go laptop to surface pro six the headphones. Right. But they didn't talk about chip shortages for any of that. Right. That's true. That's great. You know? Well, you know, what they did this year that I think was really interesting is they backed away in a very material away from their premium only strategy, right? And they did that in two different ways that really I think bumped up the volume of sales which for company for a business. That's a small surfaces is is very meaningful. You know, the first one obviously is they introduced a four hundred dollar computer right significantly lowering the entry level price of getting into surface. Right. And I personally think that thing is garbage. But it doesn't matter. What I think you see some it looks like a service pros for any bucks. They're going to sell a bunch of these things, of course. So that's done well for them. But you know, the other thing they've done that. I think it's a little less credit in Eason maybe more attention is they've significantly lowered the price of their mainstream computers, primarily surface pros six now in surface laptop to right, if you look at the prices that these things were available at during the holiday season in particular. They were hundreds of dollars off compared to what their predecessors were a year ago, and that makes a big difference in when you I just this week. We start something. It was like a surface pro bundle with type cover eight ninety nine. You know that that product a year ago was twelve ninety nine. I mean, it's that's a big difference. And I think we're seeing that reflected in the in the sales of surface PC. I think it's smart. I think this is the retina. Commercial cloud also was up famous. Not real. Five dynamics and some other cloud stuff all mushed into this group of things closed commercial cloud is now it was hit hit this past quarter nine billion up cloud. It's like when you take all of the colors of Plato you have and you extreme them through a single whole. And it's this kind of get Brown a black or something. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. Other than that though. Anything else underlings? I mean. Mention was XBox. Because this is fascinating. Xbox overall gaming revenue was only up eight percent right year-over-year that was the same gain. They had had the year before interestingly XBox hardware declined nineteen percent, Microsoft blame this on the year ago benefit from Xbox One ten but didn't ex- I guess that was was that a year ago or two years ago shortages chip shorts because it isn't Amdi. Well, so anyway that was done nineteen percent. But saw the thing that saved the day software and services jumped thirty one percent. That's actually really impressive. Right. I'd only grow for percent last year. But then in the conference call what you find out is this is classic. That growth is almost all from what hood said was the continued strength from a single third party game title. Meeting. Why? Hadn't happened XBox would've would've made less revenues than it had a year ago. It's wild. It's from fortnight Saturday's since fortnight stuff in the Microsoft store, and they take cut like apple does is that. But they're saying because four nights free in purchases an XBox. That's what drove it. That's incr-. It's incredible. What an incredible admission, you know. So would you look at the information they provided at the time of the earnings announcement. You would've thought they had a double digit software and services growth. This business is going gangbusters. No, it's a game. That's available in all platforms. It has nothing to do with Microsoft. They just lucked into it. It's a stunning. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. Xbox. But I mean, that's that's the crazy truth right there that that's really interesting. That's why they need to become the net flicks of gaming exactly then that flex can stop doing that purchase. Isn't screw them over to you? But that is that is actually fascinating I thought so. I thought so I was the single biggest. Trump didn't mention fortnight. Yes. Last night in the state of the union. Clearly, a fortnight dance is giving us the the oracle dance. I'm learning. I think I can do it now because what I learned is that you hit it because the other way. Are you doing the floss? I'm pretty sure that predates for night, but then again sort of all of those dances. But honestly, it's fortnight is the reason the economy is good shape. Clearly. That came from a company run by an insane madman is fascinating. But yes. He make on three billion dollars seven billion dollars. This year is Greg. I desert is he a nice guy. Tim bar ten bucks. It self is a rip off it's the rip off of every. No, but battle rail game the shows. I think very interesting thing in this whole business, which is it's not the idea. Yeah. Battle royale, it's all based on the hunger games anyway about it's how you implement and pub g which was first and there and did it and. Loss to fortnight same game. And I think I think there's a lot to be studied there in how other one, you know, how you know, how you know. It's big as that call of duty at it. You know, here's my prediction. Get ready. Yeah. They added a battle royale four nine. Yeah. Fortnight is the new social network for kids. They don't want to be on Facebook at Facebook should watch out. They're worried about snap. Chad and other. No, it's fortnight. You know, it just reminds me of and I don't I'm not going to remember the exact timeframe, but it was probably the late nineteen eighty s. Sorry. The late nineteen ninety s Bill Gates was interviewed and he was asked about his competitors. And whoever the person was said who is who do you consider to be your most dangerous or biggest competitor? And he said, Nintendo. Wait what? That was the point of his answer was to surprise the person. Right. It wasn't. You know, word 'perfect a Lotus or whenever company had been around at the time. Like he was looking to the future. And he was saying this thing, you know, this company from Japan superpowerful and the super popular and Microsoft didn't have a gaming thing at the time. They've been have XBox. And. What you just said is sort of similar to that. You know, you look forward to well, how are these things going to evolve? And is something to be said for it. I mean, I, you know, I just. Netflix has already said, they're number one competitor is not HBO not Amazon. It's four night that screen time spent on fortnight is actually hurting net flicks. So they need to give a four TV show go, and then it's history repeating. Yeah. I four night is I you cannot overstate how important it is. And the reason is is it is that crossover mainstream success thing. I did this example with my wife the other day, actually, where my wife doesn't care about technology. Certainly doesn't care about videogames has not heard of a lot of the things in our business that are kind of big news in our little world. She knows exactly what fortnight right, right. We go to a minor league. Baseball game is fort night all over this. They're doing fortnight dances up on the Jumbotron, like, this is the thing that has invaded mainstream society. You know, it's just it's that's how big it is. Wow. Yeah. Who to thunk it, right? It's crazy. I guess battle royale is even predates the hunger games people are saying. Starting Rasa lender on real tournament. Did unreal tournament. Have that one man standing less man wins? Sure. They did. They had all kinds of day. Headline. Thanks. Yeah. I usually play capture the flag so unreal. Tournament wouldn't have existed without quake, which wouldn't have existed without doom which wouldn't have existed without wolfenstein. Lost wealth. Doesn't count. The paddle Ray, Al, according to Miriam Webster, the I no use of the words battle royale, sixteen seventy one. Thank you. And now the moment Mary Jo Foley's been waiting for the XBox news of the week. I usually start the segment off by telling Mary Jo she has nothing to worry about it's gonna go. But you have something to worry about. This is going to go slow. So. Good Mary joke. Make a Cup of tea the cat. Oh this actually back. Yes. Sorry. There is a bunch of stuff going on speaking of four. So I see that the marshmallow. What did he stream one hundred million? People watched him DJ fortnight. That's the other thing. That's crazy. But for night is just the the money. I think honestly, the success air isn't the game type necessarily it's that they've turned this into any sports phenomenon. Could I've Eleni real sports yet fascinating. Now in a year. Probably it'd be replaced by something else. But for now. Maybe we'll have legs. But you know, what I think we've moved in a direction. I don't think we I it's going to evolve, but it started it's a new social network. And it could be you know, look at this marshmallow concert. It could be like second life. It could be where people, you know, the beginning of the metaverse, right? I don't know. I don't understand he's kind of virtual. I, you know, they have virtual casinos. Now. What are you doing this weekend? I'm going to a virtual casino. You know, I'll save some money. Yeah. I don't know the steak restaurant probably won't be as good. What is that? Well, you're not a big gambler. If you're a gamble. Literally put up to go to website and gamble is that what you're doing. Yeah. That's different. Okay. So. With regards to XBox. There's like I said there is actually some big news one is that Microsoft is moving XBox live to mobile and presumably two other screens. I think the quote was we want this to be wherever you are. You know, and that makes sense when you think about X cloud in that Microsoft will be streaming games to basically any device that you have you could kind of foresee a future where these games are coming down to your phone, your, tablet, your computer, obviously in your ear XBox? But you're smart TV perhaps in the future, Roku. Apple TV whatever it might be. And I think that's the point of it. But one of the things people are starting to wonder is if it means something beyond that are we going to see a growing collection of XBox live games on the iphone. You know, that are literally games you buy in their store, but they go through the XBox live system and have achieved minutes, and you know, support cross platform play perhaps or continue a game type of thing which there are buying versions of this kind of stuff here and there. But at this might be a more much more formal push down that path. So that's it's actually really interesting. We'll see how that evolves. I guess Microsoft. I think it's I think they own thirteen game studios through acquisitions, and then some they just recently started up today that thing has been called Microsoft studios. I mentioned earlier in the show that Microsoft typically is getting rid of product brands, and using their own corporate brand, this is actually the opposite of that. They are gonna call this thing. Xbox games studios. Moving forward and focus on the XBox game for branding. And you know, Mary Jo mentioned earlier, she there were various times his trip me as well thinking that maybe Microsoft, spinoff or sell XBox. I think increasingly XBox stays on the Microsoft umbrella, but it is treated like its own thing. And that for the gamers that care about this stuff. The brand is XBox. They think of it as XBox, you know, for my kid. I think Microsoft had kind of a cool brand because Microsoft was halo. You know? I think these days it's XBox trying to start forget interesting. And this is just gonna bring us up to see exactly what the games are sorry for the white light. But Microsoft today or last night, maybe announced the games will be coming this month to XBox game pass. And this really really good ones. Shouted the tomb raider joins the initial what was it called some rain here tomb raider definitive edition will be available tomorrow along the Walking Dead the complete first season, which actually completed that's an awesome game. And then BMX pro. But the biggest game perhaps this month is coming onto what's the date February fifteenth crackdown free, right? So that's the biggest delayed. What's that? I thought the what is the destiny clone? It's going to be. It begins with an a anthem anthem. I thought that was gonna be the game of the month. Have we changed? Our minds. Is anthem on experts game pass I o not on game pass. No. But I I think for crackdown. Okay. For game pass. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. The reason it's interesting is because Microsoft has pledged in the past at all of its but would not call XBox game lie. Xbox AM studios games will debut, Dan date retail and on game pass. This one is Xbox One tenant enhanced it's a XBox anywhere game. So expects anywhere XBox that doesn't sound right. When I say, but it will also run on windows ten if you buy it, and it will be available in game pass. I mean, I as I was saying to Brad this morning. I mean, you could make case, right? If you're not sure about game pass pay for like six months again pass. It's going to be basically the same price as buying crackdown. You'll get crack on in the other that would rushing when see this. CFC's came out. That's a no brainer. Yeah. It was cheaper than buying. Right. And you know, what you know what game passes? It people have called it the net flicks of gaming, it's not technically because it's not, you know, you don't stream the stuff, but the way it is light net flex is. It is to gaming what Netflix is to TV shows where it may not be exactly that NBC show. You wanna watch on Monday night, or whatever, but they have this selection, right, and increasingly it's really high quality and Batman returned Arkham and Batman Arkham city are available on XBox game past our we'll be this month. I mean, it's see that's how I play games. But somebody like you sit down you're gonna always boot up calling duty, right? Which is a problem. Right. So I am I it's hard for me. It's a it's an addiction. Right. So let's be honest. What it what at this is? I mean, but aren't you more Representative? I would say, I don't know my. Game here. I'll play a game that not neck next night. I'll play different game. I the the the I don't know the number of people who will only play the latest game in anyone series. I don't know that I'm in the majority. I don't have a lot of evidence to back this up with. But I look at my talk to my son about the. Got the name. It doesn't matter. There's a new there's a new battle Royal game. That's out right now. And I've zoned on the name it begins within as well. It's free. It looks awesome. It plays. Great. We'll see what happens to matter. Matter time, how long does it take to create a battle royale game this game looks amazing? So like one of the things that's interesting about the four-night versus pub g thing pudgy looks like a college game, it's kind of realistic graphics for nine s kind of cartoony graphics. But because of that it runs fast as a latex. Yeah. Apex combines the graphical quality of duty with the speed of fort night. And it is amazing. So it's something to look forward to. So might look at it. I guess it's out now. But my my son is over the years. He started out on early games, including by the way on all the unreal. Tournament's on the PC, very fast moving games. But he's played different things over the years. You know, recently, it's been like overwatch. He does fortnight. He we talked about this today's going to check it out actually today. I mean, I I think that's more typical like maybe like some kind of game. You know? Maybe eventually gory. Right. Right. Well, that's true. There's games. I I don't play any driving games sport games. Yeah. But if you did. Dr there's some selection of driving game. But I will play experts person shooter that comes along and probably battle rouser, the new hotness. I know from you know, breaking the traditions breaking the way that you do things is hard. And like, this is something my wife, and I have done over the past year with TV where we literally don't watch or even record shows on TV anymore. We just watched shows that are on series on ethics and or on Hulu are on Amazon. And we like the ability to binge-watch, we don't care if we we don't have to see it live. We don't have to see at that week. We can wait. We wanna see the whole thing at one time. And it takes a little while, you know, but I wonder if something like that might be possible for me in video games because I look at this. I don't say this is a no brainer. Because I think I'm giving you good advice. This is a no brainer. I mean, this should be no brainer. For me. It kind of bugs me that. I'm not taking advantage of this. Because I think that you're not in the minority and difference is a video game. You have to spend some time just getting up to speed. Yes. More of a commitment than saying. Well, let's just see if Barry's any good, you know. I mean, I so. Okay. So, but but gaming for me fulfils, a certain need in it and with based on my own schedule. There's a certain linelessness to call of duty that can jump into a game and jump out, and I could work I can jump into a game. I can jump out. And I could work these adventure games are like destiny, whatever you have to focus on right? And I I don't have time to focus. I can't do it. So, but I wonder, you know, like, call duties, sixty bucks, sixty bucks. I play it for a year. It's another sixty bucks for the get all the deal. See? So I'm spending one hundred twenty dollars a year just on college city. This would cost me less, right. And I would get a hundred and something games. Do you get DLC? If you're if it's game pass, you get every bit of the content. Probably not. Depends on the game. So all of the stuff that happens to game pass is based on the publisher. So for example, and have to bring it up. Let me sit I can't bring it up. There was an example of this. To to. Let's see. Excuse me. I can't remember which one it was. But one of these games. But you're getting all the deals and remember which one it was I'm sorry. But yeah, it it depends on its its, Spence. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think has great for me. But I'm probably not a typical gamer because I just so I wanna see what see if these like, okay? Played for five hours in them board. And then I don't know what the size of these audiences is. But I think on the one end is the biggest audience casual gamers, th they might pick up like a little puzzle game the standing in line on their phone, and then audience games don't lend themselves to casual gamers, do they know? But I think they're in the middle there there between casual gamers in me like that not at has to play the game. That's an I I'm just super laser focused on this one thing. Do not care. Yup. I shouldn't ask questions. I'm sorry. Very please drawing a free. It's an interesting question. No, this is important because this is a big part of Microsoft's business potentially this game pass thing. And I'm just wondering is that is it a natural audience or we've seen these things before. And I don't know. I mean, I I had the actually never stopped paying for it. And maybe that's the secret the Invidia G force go or whatever it was called. It's the same idea except it's streaming. It's not download like game. Pat. I would pay Invidia never to update my g force driver ever again. Is there a service for that? Disruptive thing. I like the shield a lot. I really did. It showed. You get update is all the time. Yeah. Yeah. Have we I think we really be this. I think you have really. I e it is a new month. I just throw it real quick XBox. Clive gold has been as rotated. This is another good month for that. By myself when months comes to say rabbit, rabbit, rabbit and to go check and see what the new games are those I have to do those. Yeah. Our show today brought to you. And then we're going to get to the back of the book with tips and all of that. And maybe some cringing Microsoft advertising. We. Yeah. I'm talking about the twins. But first, let's talk about last pass, man. I don't know why anybody who listens to this show or any of our shows is not already using last best, please. I mean, you got to use a password volt everybody knows that you've got to use last pass to generate long strong completely random and for that reason unmemorable passwords, not your uncle's birthday. And your maiden name. No, that's bad. That's wrong. Something really juicy. Good long. Crazy. You would look at it. And you won't remember it, even if you type it in five times, that's a good password. But you didn't. But you say Leo, I know what you're saying. Leo, you see I can't remember that. That's the whole point my friends don't write it on posted. Nope, stick it. Last pass. It's a password vault. That is second to none. Very strong security, Steve Gibson's vetted and giving it his seal of approval almost impossible to brute force alas past fault. And that vote by the way his own. Only decrypted at the device level which is really important because it means nobody not even last pets has access to your stuff. Only. You do I trust it so much. I put all my passwords in there. But also my driver's license. My passport my social security numbers. My SSH keys, my PG p private key. It's all in there because it's safe it secure. And I haven't now on every device. In fact, I just wiped and set up my pixel three again. And of course, the very first thing you put on here's last pass. Because it didn't it auto fills your apps as you're as you're logging into foreign and seventeen apps on here. You think I'm gonna go one by one type the passwords n no auto fill. And now in Iowa's twelve. Same thing. Auto fills makes it so easy. Now, if you if you and I'm sure you are as an individual have good password hygiene, you doing all this, right? But if you have a business are your employees doing almost, and I can tell you as a business owner, they're not they are the ones right in the password on a post it note and putting it on the screen. They're the ones using monkey one-two-three to log into your business account your checkbook your database. They're the ones sharing passwords. We know employee's a majority of place, not only shape passwords with other employees. But with people not even at the company. Last past prevents all that. You have absolute admin oversight one hundred different policies, including setting masterpass requirements. We require to factor works for the Yuba key duo, Google Thana care actually last pass as a great authenticated app, which is really cool because instead of having to type in digits, you know, like Google cater it, just it works like the Microsoft authenticated. It pops up. A notification said are you logging in approved. I love that. With last pass enterprise. You can also restrict access when somebody leaves the company. This is like a no brainer for businesses. Last pass is the number one. Most preferred password manager Tressler more than sixteen and a half million people and forty-three thousand businesses. So if you use last pass at home, I don't need to sell you on last past. But if you aren't using it in your business, you'd better get going. Last pass dot com slash twit last past dot com slash twit. You could choose from last pass premium for the individual us, we use at home last pets families, but there's also last past teams for small teams of fifty or fewer and then last pass enterprise. That's what we use it twit. And you know, what's great is. I what I do is. I sit up on just did on my iphone my because I need needed to install office. Right. And so I have to use the corporate passer, which is not my personal aspect. But last pass lets you have with one log in access to both your personal last in the enterprise last past. So just put that on my phone, and my laptop so that I can log into office. I mean, I can just go on and on. And I shouldn't because well, it's I think I got the point across last pass enterprise, go to last past dot com slash twit. And join the forty-three thousand businesses who use the best password manager of the mall, the king the number one password manager. The last pets dot com. Slash twit. And now. The trusted Paul throughout. If he's forgot to mention got observing. I did achieve master prestige last week, by the way. Oh my God. We out to you, Paul a Rockwell. So just so we're clear what that means. It's not really a reflection of skill so much as it is time spent playing a game. So it's it's time. Did you mean? Yeah. Well, we. All have different things. We'd like to do. I know judgment. I'm not judging honest, I'm judging mates fine. Just think if you had used that time to learn to play the guitar you'd be. Play the stairway to have it right now. So concert. All right. Okay. Well, that's interesting. Anyway. Microsoft today released a series of videos and also a blog post exhorting its users not to buy office twenty nineteen which is really funny because that's a Microsoft product. And the rationale there is they make us other thing called office three sixty five where you get the same apps. You get an office twenty nineteen but they're more capable because they're a they're updated every month. Be. They are cloud connected and any get all these other capabilities with office three sixty five including the ability to install all of these apps and also the mobile apps on multiple computers. You get one terabyte of one drive storage kind of goes on and on. And I I have to say, you know, I I I agree with this one hundred percent one hundred percent man here is the twins challenged. They brought in a bunch of twins. Both of them had totally non scripted. Yeah. Totally non scripted crap. What did I do? How did this heavy? You even do this here. Here's some other twins too. So confusing and they gave them off his twenty nine thousand nine the stand alone in office five. Oh, man. Yeah. Oh, man. Yeah. I don't wanna see me polisher resume started jobs. One had the intelligent features in word. Thanks officer, sixty five the other had just pulled off the other one had this piece of arson. Themselves. Hundredweight for you. Yes. Come on. This is just a Mississippi stupid. All right. But let's make this little more pragmatic. The videos are whatever they are. But I look this up because I stopped thinking about the stuff. Microsoft still sells office, right? So office. Two of them next to each other. That would do it for me that did do it hundred fifty bucks for this product only for one person. Now by the remember homes didn't used to be multiple PC's is one person one computer the home in business version, which by the way, I couldn't figure it even what the difference was the side by side comparison may them look the same. It's two hundred and fifty dollars. So a year of office three sixty five home is ninety nine dollars. You get all of those apps on for six different people on basically an infinite number of computers. You get all the MO a full power the office mobile apps. You get the one terabyte of storage. You get sixty minutes of Skype calling per month. I mean, it's just it's just a no brainer. This is obviously if you need the stuff you buy you get office three sixty five and somebody kind of went back and forth van Twitter. They were saying, well, you know, family of five I by five of these things, you know, one hundred fifty times five is whatever number and we're gonna use. Them for five years. You know, it's not that much better of a deal to get office. Three sixty five. Yes, it is. Because you. Stories you're getting a multiple notes six it's six people down, by the way. It's basically an infinite number of computers. You can only have them active on ten at a time. It's it it's affecting deactivate one to use it on the other. Yeah. You don't have to do anything to find. You just it just keeps working. It's it is a no brainer. And you know, we talked about XBox game pass because I'll never stop talking about experts jumps, right? But it is approaching that level of value. I would say for what you get for gamer in that case, you know, and, but this is the this might be the original no brainer from Microsoft or really is. It's definitely worth. Well, I it's. In my office, three sixty five because I asked Russell. Paying for a seat for on the Dennis version of it for all his time. And what I didn't know. And I just asked him and said, but does this business can I installed on multiple computers? Yeah. Same thing. So the terrified. Of of wondering the difference for you is a couple of differences. I mean, the the slightly different Email client on the web slightly different one drive with additional capabilities and complexities on the business side. There is no sense of multi user, though with the business version. So when you buy a license for that? It's yes, whatever it is. You want to use on my lap time. Yeah. But you can't give it. But you can't get into fiber with me. It's all me. It's so if you wanted if you wanted six licenses six people he is the thing you'd have to pay fifty dollars time six right, whereas with office three sixty five palm you pay ninety nine dollars. That's also still a good deal. Joe? Yeah. Okay. Yeah. For sure I just wanted people understand the difference. Right. No important. Yes. Important distinction. So Opik wise Google this week, you want to notice the word bunch of security announcements this week, gogo, Microsoft and other companies. This was tied. I think where they call internet safety day. I guess was Monday so Google actually both my picks are tied to that. So Google announced an extension for chrome called password checkup, which will examine the pass. Reggie you've used recently. And then the ones you're using as you go to make sure they weren't part of one of those data breaches where you know, some number some huge number passwords were apparently leaked online, and they just want to make sure you're safe and so forth, and they will give you security notifications as well. Stalled instantly. Yeah, I did too. It's this is the no brainer as well. Tied to this Microsoft authenticated, which is the cater to use my phone picked up security notifications of its own. That's actually really useful. Because obviously it posts it. What's up this notifications? When you try to assign in need to use to have air, whatever. But now it will prompt you gonna read the list here. Sorry, every time I open my screen at my face lights up. But so if I can find that what is the list of things? Just sit here and read my own article till I find it. I guess. Gosh. So basically if there's suspicious behavior gets your account. It will pop something up. And if it's not you you can then resolve it from there in your password, adding a new phone number Email address signing in from a new device or unusual location. God bless you. Thank you, all those things. Yeah. Yeah. Also, super smart use. Yes. I I actually really liked the Microsoft authenticated. You can only use it with Microsoft products. I kind of almost wish it was like Google. Thank you, can you can add other ones, man. So it's time both. Oh, okay. Anymore? Okay. Now, they're interchangeable Google. Well, what do you use an iphone iphone an pixel three and a note nine? On a on a pixel three or a Google phone. Those things the Google authentication stuff is kind of seamless. You don't have to use the app, and I love that. Oh on an iphone? You can keep kinda do it. You have to use a Google app. So literally Doug lap. I think it works g Malto, but you can use a thin Decatur. So what I found on an iphone is actually have to run the app sometimes to make it pop up. And it's a little, you know, less seamless, but if using an Android phone, it's awesome. The Microsoft a thank cater save your accounts across devices or two after redo it each device. Do you know what I'm saying? Hey, hold on. I just. Us for that reason. Because I just I do it once with offi. Here's the deal. It does it on. I get I I hope I got this. Right. I think it does it on Iowa's only. Okay. And that's obviously, I'm sure that will change. But that's Andy. Yeah. That's a big thing. If you have a list of ten accounts. Yeah. You don't wanna losing one and open yet. That's a is a huge pain. I think on Android. It doesn't. I'm sure it will eventually it. I think I've got that. Right. I think I think it works. I west but not an Android. And it's free. That's great. All right. I think we should take it over to the distaff side for our enterprise. Pick of the Winnie to pinch Mary Jo issue still with us. Oh, Mary Jo. I am I have kind of an interesting enterprise pick of the week. It's something we heard about at at ignite last September. And we've heard absolutely nothing about it since the Microsoft managed desktop. So if you remember what this was it kinda freaked people out at the time when it was announced it was the idea that Microsoft would actually sell provision your computers. They manage your windows. Ten updates for you. They they'd like handle it like they are your systems integrator, and you can just sit back and let them run your show. Sounds good in theory. Some people didn't like the idea like I don't want Microsoft, controlling my desktop are other people were like, I don't want this to be windows three sixty five which it's not. But I was trolling around in Microsoft, doc, see other day, docs, dot Microsoft dot com. And I kind of just came upon mixup managed us top in the documentation. There's a ton of new stuff in there that hasn't been announced or formerly introduced. But if you're if you're somebody who's like, hey, whatever happened to that Microsoft manage desktop thing. You should go look in the duck site because they've got a number of subsections. Now that explain things that were kind of sketchy when they announced it, then we didn't really know how it would work. They've got a section about. What does it mean to be a device as a service IT as a service? What are the prerequisites? How do you add an admin contact? There's even a change history page in it showing you all. All the things they've added to the site since they announced this, and there's quite a bit of news sections and content that you can click on inside the change history page. So if you're somebody who was wondering, hey, whatever happened to that. Or if you're somebody who's like, hey, this sounds like a kind of an interesting idea, you should go. Check out the updated docs for Microsoft manage desktop is there. Is required enterprise license. You have it uses windows ten enterprise as part of Microsoft's three sixty five. Yeah. It's not for normal people businesses IT guy for your family or something they wouldn't so far. This is a big business type offering. But you could imagine one day just like they're gonna do Microsoft three sixty five consumer, maybe they would do Microsoft manage desktop consumer. Good idea. That would be a good idea. Enterprise. Pick number two. Right. This is a feature that's not brand new to windows ten, but I feel like we don't talk about it a lot. And some people may not even know it's there I'm talking about quick assist in windows. Ten so if you knew what remote what was it called remote assistance was in previous versions of windows the successor to that is called quick assist. I'm Petrie dot com this week. There's a nice sinked little to'real about how do you set this up, and how do you use it? So you if you're a business you could use this to do remote support for a remote office, or if you're a normal person, you could do it to provide free mushrooms. Nude? Yeah. If you're if you're a normal, you might wanna use this to help your parents when this like, I'm thinking about my mom here. Especially who when I say, mum, click on Internet Explorer. She's like, what do you mean? I don't know what that is. So you could use it for that too. If she if she were on windows ten she's not a windows ten. Yep. That's going to have to happen by January next year. So yeah, quick assist. If if you kind of arrest the about it or never heard about it or wanna see a really easy fast tutorial, go to Petrie dot com, and they've got a little post up there. But that now in the continuing saga of Mary Jo Foley learning to speak Dutch. I know. Pick. I'm like I'm going to butcher every part of this fair pick. But it's worth it. Actually, this is my beer pick limit. I know the peer pick is west a letter in twelve. How do they do on that Westville Letterman twelve there's just a a random consonant stuck? Got to be Flemish. This can't be Dutch Dutch is more more vowel focused. You may have heard of this fear though. It's at one point not long ago. It was voted the best beer in the world. It's a Belgian okay Belgian quadruple quad ten point two percent. I get to have it during the Super Bowl when I was fun. Luckily ahead this beer to look forward to because there it was pretty fury whacked by the time. There was any scoring. People you non-football, speak, quiet. Oh you patriot fan. But this beer was the letter in twelve from the Saint six burry, I'm not even going to attempt to pronounce that in Dutch or whatever. It's to be Flemish because it's it's it's in Belgium. Okay. Yeah. It's a Trappist beer it's a quad, which means dark fruits Brown sugar, really, smooth and delicious so easy. I love built in triples. What is this better? I mean, this is thirty three percent better. Leo. What are we what are we tripling or quoting? Is it the hops? No, actually, they're quite different triples quads. I know I should know this right off the top of my head. What makes a quadruples are like eating chocolate cake. So this is just more like that. So I think I think of quads as being more like like those brandy wine bears as Bryn Varley. Varley one. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. Got that real sugary kind of thick. Have like a spicy quality in a good way. Not like a fruitcake way. Corn syrup is it. Yeah. Has no corn syrup. Surprisingly, unlike other beers that shall not be named. We wouldn't have to send the dragon number. If you paid me, but I give them credit for going after corn syrup that would be awesome. That we thought that's for Butler. That was fantastic. Although it made so many people mad, but that was kind of finding people who's defending mad. It made the deferred. The corn liquid sugar the probably the single biggest contributor to American ability. Sugar time you drink the beer, that's you know, turning turning into alcohol. It's just as right? I presented make it with corn syrup. Leo. By the tears made a far more. There is made from barley any starch will ferment. Yes. But if it's beer. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But this is not that a quad as the as the one hundred eighty degree opposite of a beer with. And you were able to find it in SF one of my friends bradtha to a little Super Bowl party. And I was like, yes, let's let's break that out loveliest vest with Rin from. Quadruple fistful? That'd be the the six six cents s s and does you did that? Around this in the United States. Yeah. Yeah. I think my friend. Brought it back from Europe you can find it sometimes in the United States look at that bottle. It looks like it's actually been stored in an abbey since the twelfth. As Britzka app. Any can't beat the score. Now, two hundred it's one hundred hundred eight beer in any way. Holy cow. It's definitely it's definitely one of the smoothest beers. I've had like you never know. It was ten percent ever. Well. I know by the end after after like, if you drank a whole one of those you would definitely not no. Paul's doing I'm going off carbs in a couple of weeks, and I don't. You're right. Ken now. Yeah. Yep. So yeah, that's my beer pick. It's not easy to find. But if you ever get a chance to try it it's worth finding. Paul Harada Mary Jo Foley. You are just the darlings of the windows set. That's been call that so many times, but he says that.

Use intro at checkout and get the discount in this week. I had a bit of a different discussion. I spoke with poppy McDonald the former C._E._o.. Of Politico who a year ago left if the publisher of for a new type of publishing physician managing director of U._S._A. Facts a nonprofit organization set up by former Microsoft's Steve Bomber to bring data to the forefront of government and in turn to our democracy poppy and I discuss whether weather data can truly be nonpartisan at a time when the most basic facts are in dispute how U._S._A.. Fax Targets both citizens and government officials and whether politicians really want to agree on a common setbacks in the first place hope you enjoyed <music> poppy welcome to the PODCASTS. Thank you for having me back so yes you were here before but in a different role because you're Politica then your President C._O._O.. Politico and then he left about a year ago to go to U._S._A.. Facts I I did for those who don't know what is U._S._A.. Fax U._S._A.. Facts is bringing government data to people in an accessible way and we hope they will use that data to inform the decisions they make so whether they're a voter or a member of Congress trying to decide is our country headed in the right or wrong direction we think that should probably start with the facts and not start with partisan rhetoric and so we're bringing government facts to the people okay. Steve Bomber started us he did he is our founder. Okay nonprofit nonprofit nonpartisan. It's funded by Steve and he wants to just his only intention is to give it as a gift back to the public a gift back to the public <hes> what attracted due to go this fro versus in another publishing job or just continue to build politico well when I heard about the opportunity and I think in the environment that we're in right now right where it is fake news and partisanship and <hes> a tough tough environment for media right now I think both in terms of the revenue side and how do we support journalism but also <hes> how do we break through <hes> in a time especially in in Washington up of fake news. I got this call from a head hunters said would you consider an opportunity in Seattle and I thought I'm from Oregon back to the Pacific northwest. That sounds pretty fantastic but I hadn't been able to find an opportunity in the northwest that would make me feel like I was having the kind of impact packed I had been able to have in media and then I heard that Steve Momma started this organization and I was familiar with it but about how do we bring facts back into the discussion and how do we make government data accessible to lawmakers into citizens citizens in the same way that when he ran Microsoft he had access to data and he leverage that data to inform decision making and it sounded like a a mission that I could definitely get behind in one that I could see being very hopeful for media I and for government leaders and a regular citizens so contributing back and having a positive impact so I was really excited about the opportunity. Did you have any skepticism just having been in Washington for awhile. <hes> you hear a lot of C._O.. Types they were like the government needs to be running lake a company and you know <hes> now we have <hes> kind of a business fan but I it was really a brand executive <hes> but in the White House ah there's things never really there's a big difference between writing a government and and running a company even if the companies the size of Microsoft absolutely agree and I think what gave me less PAS ingredients. His YASIM was just hearing from Steve about what is your real intention like. Why are you really doing this and he's like honestly I just want people to have access to the data and his history was leaving Microsoft and he has a philanthropic initiative through the bomber a group where he's trying to lift children out of poverty kids born into poverty have a very limited chance of being able to get out of that bottom twenty percent and so he was looking at what are the gaps in government spending? I don't WanNa spend more do more. Initiatives should've where government is already successful <hes> in in trying to find that data months and months later with <hes> finance people from Microsoft and policy folks and data experts trying to gather just information about how does government spend money <hes> how what are the outcomes <hes> where is where we making progress <hes> he said Gosh was this hard for me to get access to that information. I can't imagine how government leaders or let alone regular Giller people can get access to decide. Are we moving in a good direction so there's two sides to it right and this is nonpartisan. Okay which is we'll get to because that's really difficulties <hes> but there's two sides of this one is is lawmakers right to allow lawmakers makers and those in government to make better decisions right but then there's regular citizens. Those of us were citizens <hes> for us to be. I don't know more active in in democracy but you saw business us. Here's my here's my skeptical a lot of times people use <hes> dated not to make decisions but to defend decisions they arrive at the decision beforehand and then they look at the data that supports that decision and then it goes into the powerpoint slide you you surely have come across this. Absolutely people are going to use to back up their opinion or to make their argument or their case. That's not what U._S._A.. Faxes doing at the end of the day. We're just providing the data now. Could it be that Rachel maddow and rush limbaugh used the exact same data to make your very different case about what that little at the border <hes> you know. I think there's the the data shows that like the number of I I guess detentions are down and then <hes> one side says while this shows that getting tough is the right policy and then the other side says while it's hot and people tend not ought to historically if you look at the data across the border when it's hot it would be better when it's cooler I guess <hes> and the the volleyball game just goes on and on and and they're using the same data. Absolutely yeah I mean so we have data right that shows border apprehensions are down significantly so in nineteen eighty. They were seven hundred fifty nine thousand today there about four hundred four thousand right so you could use that data to say one person being apprehended at the border. <hes> is too many people or right. I mean so you can argue anything you want but I think our premise is that it should start with agreement on the facts and that if both sides can use the same set of Faxon accent I think that would be helpful to media right where you hear people say. If I turn on Fox or I turn on M._S._N._B._C. I'm hearing completely different stories and I can't make sense of what's going on what if they turn those on in heard the same set effects but then heard different solutions to there's problems I think it would create a lot less confusion a lot more trust in media and in public officials said do you think that can help move things back to I o sick of like you know kind of like a football game like politics USA mostly between the two forty yard lines and this knowledgeable will work but easily between the two forty yard lines and certain there'd be a certain group of people thought you know the government should have more involvement in the the economy or society and you have certain group of people who think it should be less ask but we sort of you end up between the forties these days. It's it's like all in opposite red zones if you will. I guess it's a red and blue and I wonder whether or not you know one of the missions is to is to bring things back to operate in between the forties and whether if you can agree on an underlying set of a fax based on data then you're just I mean like everyone's it's a shouting past each other exactly if you can't start with agreement on the facts and then have a conversation about how do we want to move these numbers. What's the outcome we want to drive toward? Can we agree that. This is the outcome want <hes> and then we can disagree about how how best to get there right is the outcome. We want that no illegal immigrants are crossing the border and then. How do you think we best do that? And how do I think we best do that and then let's watch the number to see if we get to that outcome. I that's what's typically happening in a business <hes> and I think just just government being able to start there would be really hopeful right. I was in businesses have like C._E._O.'s who like you know the ultimately get a make. The final call and I think is our C._E._O.. President is is finding out now. The Government Minh is a little bit more complicated and that's that's by design. That's a feature not a bug because there's a lot of different constituencies in a in a gigantic diverse country like ours that is very true right so there's not one one dictator who gets to make all the decisions not the C._e._o.'s and businesses are dictators but <hes> there are. I think this can be a good foundation for <hes> starting just effects biggest discussion and I experienced yesterday we were on Capitol Hill and we're in a broom of fourteen senators <hes> and it was a bipartisan group of senators hosted by Senator Schumer and Senator Romney and we just were walking them through the facts and you started seeing some discussion about <hes> if this is the case if if people aren't actually living longer but we're spending two hundred twenty one percent more on healthcare we want to drive people having a better quality of life. How do we do that? What is something we can do as senators and there was really positive discussion happening and I think that is not the narrative you here in the media or what you see on television when you hear <hes> kind of partisan backbiting and <hes> it was you know gave me hope okay so there's hope yes so explain what U._S._A.? Facts is doing because I mean you're you're. You're collecting a lot of data because I mean look the government collects a lot of data already. It has a census which we will address because even that becomes controversial it has <hes> the the Congressional Budget Office. It has many different <hes> organizations that are dedicated to collecting data about our country about its population <hes> about its it's government <hes> and they're supposed to be nonpartisan most of these right so where is the data coming from that U._S._A.. Facts <hes> is I guess I mean you're. You're basically layer on talk of data. That's already been collected right. We are so we are going to about seventy federal agencies and one hundred twenty one government data sources and bringing it all together <hes> in to show US government sources. I was just U._S.. Government source of no like you ended or nope. We're just focus on the United States right now and that there are ninety thousand government entities in the United States so just to get the data from those ninety thousand gives us a lot of running room where at the highest is level right now we're looking at how does the Federal State and local government collect revenues and what are those revenues. How do they spend and then what are the outcomes that had striving for our country? <hes> obviously people beyond government have an impact on those was outcomes of what we just WANNA see are Americans lives getting better or worse. <hes> we'll let people make that decision but looking at things like graduation rates in schools or kids in eighth grade were proficient in math and reading so we're we're collecting that data together we are next up now is to add the state and local data but as I mentioned we've got ninety thousand governments to Goto and so it's a big initiative <hes> and the data is hard to gather right in some cases. We've had <hes> a local state government. Say Bring Your it is technically public but sometimes it's on P._d._F.'s <hes> and so we're having to scrape data off a piece of paper. You visualize the data in in user friendly ways. Yes which the government does not. I mean anyone is dealt with government data. That's like a it's a mess. It's a user friendly ways and also just common sense ways right so if you were trying to figure out what is the government doing to help kids in poverty while you'd have to go to the Department of Agriculture budget which is where food stamps said you'd have to go but at the Department of Education budget right you have to go and look for to get headstart funding so you're going to different agencies budgets which aren't really organized by trying to solve a problem. They're organized by budgets of individual entities. So what are you are. Are you just gathering the data and then visualizing the data or are you making calls because I mean this is where like you can get conflicting data on the same <hes> the same topic and <hes> you know you might need to normalize normalized that data like are you like how do you make sure that you're not going to be accused by one side of the other of manipulating the data <hes> even if it's just being done you know in a in a statistical way well so we report government data and we link back to the original source from the government right and so if people want to know. Why did you choose that particular number in some cases we are having to make a call? There are strangely like two different numbers. I reported for amount of veterans in the United States which ones it's like. The government and there are good reasons why there's like a different count but <hes> yes sometimes dude. You have to make a call but we're always linking back back to the source and if so people know that you know it's not like we just magically like let's get amalgamate the numbers and come up with our own count <hes> sorts of truth. We'll be right back. What if you could reach the right professionals the right way imagine the best place for markers a place where you stand out a place that has exactly the people you're looking for an even better? They're looking for you. That would be a place like Lincoln. Lincoln ads ads can help drive the results markers like you care about the most whether that's building your brand all the way to converting revenue and driving growth to redeem a free one hundred dollar linked in AD credit and launch your first campaign go to linked in dot dot com slash digital that is linked in dot com slash digital for your free one hundred dollars at credit terms and conditions apply now back to the episode <hes> but you you're publishing basically nuclear an annual report truth kind of interesting and also like a version of like ten k yeah so were the S._e._C. requires corporations to do an accounting right where they publicly report these are the numbers and they're factual and they make the C._E._o.. And C._F._O.. Sign and attest to those rights so that investors in those companies no like an accurate and truthful hopefully accounting of what's happening in that. We're running a loss again and so oh for the government right. Why aren't they also reporting to citizens who are investors as taxpayers in their country? <hes> here's how we're doing is the government here. The revenues were collecting. Here's what we're spending it on and <HES> here are risks. Here's our corporate structure picture right our government structure so we are producing that ten K <hes> an annual report on government and then on our site real time publishing new data as it comes in from the government so I think the cliche when it comes to data's like garbage in garbage oh well how concerned are you about the partisan manipulation of data. I mean we saw this in the census. <hes> fight everything becomes a fight these days <hes> and so I know in previous interviews Steve Bombers said more data's better data you just want more data and then it'll end up being better <hes> in this situation you could say that by adding a question on the census about citizenship that gives you more data so that's gotta be better on the other hand you could say by adding a question to the census a you're gonNA get less data because they're gonNA. There's going to be a group of people who make a very realistic decision decision not to participate in the sense because of that question totally fair and I think where we came out on the census is we are an official partner of the census. We want everyone to get counted. <hes> and we're pro people getting counted right. We think that's having good data which would mean counting every person accurately who lives in the United States and where they live and how they live is an important part of having good accurate data <hes> now we stayed out of the discussion and obviously that was decided guided by the Supreme Court about like what questions should be asked <hes> mostly when it comes to advocacy. The only thing we're advocating for is accurate <hes> real time reporting of data in agreement on what is the data. We're going to collect the government so that there can be some standardization because you can imagine as we're trying to go out to ninety thousand governments having no expectation in terms of what they collect when they were reported how often they report it makes her job really hard <hes> and so that's really are only advocacy agenda right. You've been around politics a lot so I mean how realistic is it that politicians are not going to try to manipulate the data because the data is I mean it it really does impact so much when it comes to do the representation and therefore the how we appropriate power in this country I mean we can we've seen this obviously with gerrymandering and <hes> with how you divide up congressional districts and who gets just the the fact of of how many people live somewhere makes a big difference. That's why this is a big fight right. I mean it's about power ultimately in Washington <hes> so I'm sure when you go to senators you know they're like wow these these the state looks great and we can agree but like ultimately it's about like fights for power and how realistic is it that politicians will not just see manipulating the data as the surest way to shoring up power. I think where we see <MUSIC>. The bias coming into the data is when people are doing predictions or forecasts or analysis right our analysis you know somebody extrapolating yes and so <hes> we have been cleared that we won't use <hes> any <hes> basically any projections or any future forecasting data even if it comes from government source so even like a C._B._o.. Estimate or something right and I think those could be manipulated to try to further partisan agenda so we're staying out of that business the only thing we do use his life expectancy <hes> and Steve is even uncomfortable with that right <hes> because it's estimating how long someone's GonNa live he really prefers what is the actual age at which people die so we show them both together but beyond that no forecasts and it's just here is the data as it stands. How do you judge how successful U._S._A.? Facts is so I think there's one part art which is how many people are reaching with government data. How many unique people are coming and <hes> looking at government data? How many people are subscribing to our newsletter? How many people follow us on twitter or on facebook publishing metrics Turks? Yes I mean our goal is really to grow our audience but then there's definitely a second piece of that which I would say are also publishing metric metrics which is our people engaging with that content right of what are the page views time spent on site and then are they actually doing anything with our content. I'm so we hope to see people sharing our data <hes> citing our data if they're in the media or as a politician and so we do want something more to be done than just we grew big audience who happened to hit our site briefly. We WanNa make sure that people bar leveraging that data to inform democracy so I I'm sure Steve Bomber is is very results-oriented <hes> and so a lot of these are sort of leading indicators but like ultimately the goal is to you know perfect are imperfect democracy. How do you how long term figure out whether it's moving the needle there? I think that is going to yards attribution questionnaire vast. What we have agreed on right now is <hes> a first step is let's grow? The audience so Steve's made a big personal investment <hes> over thirty million dollars at this point in terms of bringing all of this government data together. I think also also Los Angeles Clippers contracts thirty three million thirty three <hes> he's worth sixty. Oh good yes S.. GotTa deal great excitement over but <hes> in our other the other exciting passion project that Steve has which is U._S._A.. Facts <hes> so we've agreed. Let's grow grow our audience a second piece of that is to do more with our data and so we want to do more storytelling ultimately I think there's a very small percent of the population who just loves like going in and tinkering and diving into data and databases and just checking out data and trying to make sense of it themselves so we started doing more publishing around the content not taking an opinion but just showing hey what are the trends were seeing over time. What's the data you should be paying attention to right now given what's in the news and then the final piece of that is to make are data <hes> easier to discover so really working on improving <hes> search off platform and on our site so we want people if they needed a piece of data to be able to find it on Google really easily <hes> and then adding more data's we talked about the fact that I think think when people ultimately do come to U._S._A.? Facts and they say well that's interesting only thirty four percent of kids or proficient math to probably going to know what's happening at my kids school and so making sure that we have that data so that they know about <hes> how his life where they live in their ars zip code in their neighborhood and their school district. So what do you hear from lawmakers because I mean that's an important constituency when it comes to you know using data in in ways that that at least push look our government's always going to a message always has been messy but I think most people would agree at this point. It's gotten probably too messy. <hes> where it's not grounded in like a common understanding of facts like I mean you mentioned a meeting the ahead like the other day <hes> <hes> explain a little bit more about wh- do you see a desire there among the participants in the political process to have a set of facts that they agree on that. It's it's in the name U._S._A.. A facts but I I I don't know if we have a set of facts right now that that the country and particularly it's politicians broadly agree on completely fair so we've gotten really enthusiastic response from members of Congress so in April when we launched our annual report we met with Speaker Pelosi and we met with leader McCarthy and they both said this is important this data that are lawmaker should have access to please come back and brief more of our constituency so we were on Capitol Hill yesterday did five different meetings met with about a hundred eighty percent members of Congress House members and senators and we had really positive reaction. <hes> people said this is really helpful from the house was debating minimum wage and Steve said flip to this page flip to that page you can see what are the types of jobs people have that are making under minimum wage. How many people are in those jobs? How would that an impact them? How many are actually like using this to to support their families exactly yeah so I mean going to the data to think about how would this legislation that I'm going to pass really impact the country <hes> and so we got positive reaction of people saying thank you for doing this? Thank you for putting the state of together and and keep doing it and keep coming back and keep engaging with us in this is something our staff will use <hes> and that though us to help inform their thinking so so far. It's been very positive I'd say even with federal agencies where at some point we might be a bit of a thorn in their side in terms of hey we need more accurate data. We need <hes> meaning current data right like you haven't published data and over a year they say foia us like put in a freedom of Information Act request because and tell you force our agency to focus on getting data reported and timely manner were just not right and not because they don't want to but just because the mandate of <hes> Department of Agriculture is the lead like it's extremely delayed it is it's too late and I mean not. I think not for codifying. It's a big countries so it's really difficult to to figure out I mean it's just like even like the economic data you know the I don't everyone writes about it when it comes out and like it's it's only like in retrospect that becomes anywhere close to be being accurate because I mean the counting I duNNo. Let's the whole system seems very complex by necessity. Because it's a gigantic economy it is and and we do think that while the current what is happening this month with the jobs report or what is happening this month with border apprehensions. That's relevant right. The job of the media might be to cover potentially well. It added like this many jobs and then like you know I I like three quarters of the year later. There's like well. Actually the number was different so really why would we focus on is historical trends right so we think that there are plenty of people covering like what's happening today. And that's the news media right and are those numbers completely accurate oftentimes they do get revised but our goal is really to provide historical context that you can look back and say well compared to twenty years ago when trump says this is the best most booming economy ever. Is that actually the case. Does the data play that out or when it's you hear from politicians like oh all of these illegals are coming across borders and unprecedent fashion look back at the data and put some perspective to it so that's really where we hope to Insert S. Some sanity and some context into the conversation okay any insights to your previous life now that you're I mean you're still in publishing to a degree but <hes> it's different you. Don't I mean it's not a for profit entity any the insights you have now sort of to the the other life you lived in the publishing industry about how it should be using data. I do think in the I made the comment earlier about <hes> as a consumer of media hearing from people that they feel like they read one publication and they read another and they're getting completely different stories or they turn on the T._v. and it's Fox and M._S._N._B._C. that it's eroding trust in the news because they're what is the foundation of truth so I think where media can leverage data from independent sources and compliment that with the human intelligence work they're doing right the exciting quotes <hes> it can bring trust back and I think is a reporter.

Is LA Becoming a Clippers Town?

"Ever since he bought the team back in two thousand fourteen clippers owner Steve Bomber has been on a mission. You're soon Yi shot Taylor's everybody WHO's here tonight. Take on Chuck Taylors. In a city. That's synonymous with the Lakers. He's trying to win championships and went over. Fans and with the clippers and Lakers said to square off on Sunday the Knicks. Bouba joins us to talk about how bombers mission is going how these teams matchup against each other and whether or not Los Angeles is starting to become a clippers town. You know there is a whole part of Los Angeles that is not Hollywood. That are the people who take the bus and work three jobs and really have to grind to make a living from wondering and the athletic. I'm under skelter and Davidson. It's Friday march six and this is the lead. It felt like something great. There is something about the emotion for the past her. Because was a story it stays with you. The lead supported by Light. Box ever heard of lab grown diamonds. Ladron diamonds are essentially chemically identical to natural ones just made in a lab at lightboxes. They've hacked the process to grow gorgeous stones every time it starts with a tiny piece of lab grown diamond heated up in a plasma reactor temperatures nearly as hot as the sun after about two weeks. Those little seeds grow into full stones. Now here's where it gets really interesting. Lightbulbs lab grown diamonds aren't just made the same every time they're all priced the same. Each carrot is eight hundred dollars mind blown even cracked the science of colors. You can sparkle pink white and blue. Check them out at light bucks. Jewelry DOT com slash lead in use code lead for twenty five dollars off. That's LIGHTBULBS JEWELRY DOT COM SLASH LEAD. L. E. A. D. and use code lead for twenty five dollars off so your son. What's it like to be at a clippers? Press Conference when Steve Balmer is at the podium. Well the his first press conference as the clippers owner was a pep rally. Not IMPRESSED CONFERENCE STEVE. Where he came out there glaring. Lose yourself and he's fist pumping and high fiving. Everybody and he's coming out like it's the first game of the season and he's being introduced to the crowd like a flare and that really is set. The tone I think for his ownership tenure over the last six years where. He's been very unconventional you. You never know what he's GonNa say you know there's GonNa be a couple of viral moments over this past summer. When he introduced Leonard and Paul George he was very animated during that. These notes say I'm just to be here today. It's pretty cool pretty cool. Those two guys got a kick out of that and relaxing onstage. He definitely is someone who I don't think we've ever really seen before. Because he does kind of spasm with those gestures and he turns red when he's you know go yelling and screaming and you never know what you're going to get what was the bomber. But that's what makes it so entertaining and exciting. And he's an ex. Ceo of Microsoft. But not your typical computer geek. No not not at all. He's not the typical techn- erred. He was the the basketball manager for his high school basketball team. He was the football manager at Harvard. East from the Detroit Metropolitan Area. So he's always been involved in sports in kind of had a jock sort of mentality's still very nerdy a borderline genius. You know he was the one who graduated from Harvard. Not Bill Gates and Steve. Top class and one of the smartest guys in the world. So Steve Balmer bought the clippers back in two thousand fourteen. Right after a very dark chapter in the franchise's history from the NBA Dow Sterling banned for life. After that caught on tape racist rant now says he will not fight the for sale of his team instead. He wants his wife to find a buyer and some big names have expressed interest. What was the feeling within the clippers organization as Donald Sterling went out and Steve? Balmer came in. It was shocked. It was relief. Donald Sterling really viewed it as a way to make money not as a way to run a successful basketball organization. He was lording over the franchise in a way that it there was no hope it was basically like one. Is this guy going to die? He owned the team for thirty years aside from the personal stuff which we can really divorce from his ownership but if you wanted to look at strictly what he did as an owner the touristy cheap in every regard trading away players Not Resigning key pieces. I mean the team was always in the lottery yet. Rarely re-signing those guys because he was so cheap and did not want to pay guys and didn't really care about the encore product so as a owner in that regard he was one of the worst owners. If not be worse donor Not just in the NBA but in professional sports really the the bar was set so low that anyone coming in would be an upgrade on on Donald Sterling but the fact that the bomber has come in and really establish himself as probably a top five owner over the last five six years. And he's in that conversation. I think that that is really been the biggest shift in the clippers organization. And since Steve Bomber arrived this organization has really been on a mission to build its fan base in Los Angeles. What have the clippers been doing to try and attract more fans? I think the key would the clippers strategy on how to attract more fans as ban it. Not only distancing themselves from the Lakers but almost being the antithesis of Lakers in you see that most recently with their L. A. R. WAY CAMPAIGN SUBSTANCE OVER FLASH GRID OVER GLAMOUR. And a lot of the billboards and messaging behind that the we over me streetlights over spotlights people of our city sweat and bleed uncelebrated. We play for where the clippers have really tried to appeal to the blue collar. Fan In L. A. Because they they realized we cannot out showtime the Lakers. The Lakers are Glitz and glamour. The Lakers are Hollywood. And if you really look at the identity of the clippers most recent successful team lob city. There was a showtime element to that. It was it was fast breaks. It was the flashing of Chris Paul and his passing Blake Griffin's dunking gave Griffin just over the top of for bucket. That was kind of a flashy team. I think what the Clippers realized kind of post. Lob City is that they can't go toe to toe with the Lakers. The Hollywood nece the star power to the GLITZ Glamour. The Lakers will always win that battle. Because you know they're the Lakers in the history of sixty plus years of To a hall of Famers all those retired jerseys to the clippers really decided to go all in on Grit and toughness in the blue collar kind of aspect of L. A. which to them was an underrepresented area of La Proud of what we did. Last year. We had a hell of a team played the right way. Har- riddy resilient actually the clippers about. I just been great news that there is a whole part of Los Angeles. That is not Hollywood that that are the people who you know. Take the bus and in work three jobs and and really have to grind to make a living. I have to say as someone who lives in L. A. You really do see these billboards and advertisements like everywhere. I mean they're on buses freeway exits buildings and I think has been working because Everyone kind of knows everyone. Seeing these billboards everyone can can recite them and it has become a thing in La and it really is true to the franchises values because they are the underdog. In comparison to the Lakers. They are scrapping and fighting to try to get fans in kind of create their own legacy to be a clippers fan over the past. Thirty five years you had to buck the norm of everyone in La. Kinda grew you know the Lakers are not only in la establishment but really a global establishment so to be a clippers fan in la before Blake Griffin. Beat before Chris Paul. Before Doc rivers before Steve Bomber. You really almost WANNA be in your own lane. WanNa go against the grain and go against the norm so the clippers kind of leaned into some of that and Steve. Ballmer and the clippers have been investing a ton of money into basketball in the city. A big thing. They've done has been renovating all these youth basketball courts around the city. Every kid who gets fired up about basketball get me fired up so just incredibly excited to see kids out. There who clippers owners are donating ten million dollars to give off three hundred forty four basketball courts a little rehab and one of the benefits of that is I think earns goodwill for the city. And if you're kind of thinking about it strategically now if you're five six year old you go to your school and you know. There's a giant Clippers logo at center court. And there's a clippers logo on the backboard of your basketball court and that stuff is kind of ingrained and might not convert a bunch of fans. But Hey that's that's you know more than they're going to convert be before otherwise. So I think the clippers have been strategic in that. They've been smart with that. And Steve Balmer also has a plan to improve their stadium situation which currently is not great. So right now. The clippers are the third time in in staple center behind the king's behind the Lakers. It's been a point of frustration for the team. Even back before Steve Bomber but especially since he's arrived in the clippers get stuck with the worst dates. They always play these Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Games that the players don't like playing at those times So really the clippers are always picking third. They have to deal with the purple seats. The the Lakers retired jerseys in and banners and I mean look you walk into staple center. There's six seven Laker statues outside and really everything about staple center is associated with the Lakers. So it really is like the House that the Lakers built the house that Kobe built the house. Check BILL AND I. I think for the clippers. The last kind of part aside from winning a championship is having their own arena. Having their own home. You know that. That's the way Steve Bomber as framed. It like we want our own home and their lease was staple center ends twenty twenty three twenty twenty four. So the plan for the clippers. Is that twenty two thousand four summer to move out of staples center move into their new arena in Inglewood and start the twenty twenty four twenty twenty-five season in their new home but as of now they're actually not allowed to build a new arena within a certain distance of the forum. The famous arena. Where the Showtime Lakers won so many championships of the floor here at the Forum last year's championship manner. The Lakers tonight tied to become the first team to win. Back to back championships. Boston Celtics very same floor. Back in nineteen sixty nine. And so Steve. Balmer solution is to literally try to buy the forum so that he can build his new arena. Right down the road. Is there something symbolic to that? Yeah I th. I think it's a boss move. Steve Bomber can out spend any NBA owner. And it's not really close by the end of this process by two thousand twenty four when they move into the new arena. Assuming it happens he will probably have spent somewhere between four to five billion dollars on the clippers. And that's a lot of money but it's Kinda Chump. Change the him You know as crazy as that sounds and I think what it's showing is it's a commitment to staying in Los Angeles. It's a commitment to providing the best Experience Four Clipper fans. He wants to give them their own home that they can be proud of. They don't have to look up. And you know. See something kind of covering the Lakers banners and kind of know in the back of their heads like this is the the Lakers house really with the capital. One SAVER CARD. You earn four percent cashback on dining and entertainment. That means four percent milkshakes with the kids in four percent on music with your pals you also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in capital one. What's in your wallet terms apply? The clippers have beaten the Lakers twice this year. What have you noticed in those games? And what are you going to be watching for in this match upon Sunday? I've noticed that Leonard has been the best player on the floor in both games. George Finds Leonard Backs in falling away is eighteen. Colli Leonard. Lebron James. Anthony Davis to me are the best duo in the NBA. Their numbers back that up but the one thing that can kind of swing not is quiet. Leonard's just individual brilliance and he's really come into his own as arguably the best player in the NBA and really the most unguarded player in the NBA where he can create his shot against any defense against any defender. Davis right now picks up Leonard on the switch Leonard. A three pointer. Good those off the dribble threes there. I don't know how you guard those. Those are just end. That mid range shot over past year. Plus is basically been automatic. So really looking at the matchup. The Lakers don't have a great defender to throw at quite Leonard Danny Green Avery. Bradley case EP or too slow cal. Kuzma is an good enough defender and Lebron can probably do it. But he can't do it for a full game. So what you've kind of seen I think. In both instances has been quite Leonard. Feeling out the Lakers defense. And then kind of just gone off the Lakers do of the size advantage. And that has materialized. In the matchups great players matched up Davis turned szucs. Was Right too much for the Lakers side of things that the most interesting thing is what happens with Anthony Davis because on paper the clippers. Do not have anyone that should be able to guard. Anthony Davis Everyone's either too small not strong enough not long enough But they've actually defended him really. Well they've single covered him You know sometimes they'll send a late double. Sometimes they'll send a soft double. But what what the Lakers have kind of fallen into as just posting up. Anthony Davis isolating him and letting him try to go to work against the clippers and the companies have done a really nice job of getting into his legs pushing him off the block and forcing him into a bunch of mid-range Jumpers which Anthony Davis can hit but he has not hit consistently in the first two match ups. And you have on. You spoke with us a couple of months ago about some apparent chemistry issues within the clippers. Much of that around Kawhi Leonard. And the way that he fit in with this kind of gritty salt of the earth kind of team. What's the latest there does? It seem like those issues of more or less been resolved now. The issues have gotten better from what I've heard. They're still there you know they have not been fully resolved. There are still issues with preferential treatment with sort of some of the locker room dynamics and just different personalities and and guys not fully clicking and but everything is masked by winning. They have been playing better since they made the Marcus Morris Trade and added Reggie Jackson so for now I think things are fine but if for whatever reason this team under achieves that has something to keep an eye on into watches as maybe some of the stuff behind the scenes not going as well as his team needs to during the playoffs and coming back to this question of fans. You know the clippers are the home team on Sunday so theoretically at least they should have more fans there than the Lakers. But I know there have been plenty of times where this matchup has actually felt more like a home game for the Lakers. Is that still the case Clippers home games. Have I think gradually shifted over the years You know like I think there is a point where it was over. Fifty Percent Lakers fans or at least it felt that way in the arena. The there were so allowed and overwhelming. I remember During the heyday of the Miami Heat After one game John J Jordan Had a quote where he said. This felt like a road game Staple Center having so many Miami Heat fans in the crowd But it's been the Chicago Bulls the Boston Celtics. Even the Golden State Warriors for Shark. So that's also something. I'm sure they're going to try to work out in Infix with the new arena is making it way. More of just clipper fans have icing on the secondary market to to some extent. But I'm going to be interesting to see how the dynamic is on Sunday because at the end of the day. These two teams are on a collision. Course they're most likely going to face each other in the conference semifinals or conference finals. It's the matchup. Everyone wants to see To a lot of people it is the NBA Finals of. You know whichever team comes out is probably going to win the title of course Up to Oh and season series so they have that advantage right now but I think everyone's edge of their seat and I'm very interested to see how plays out and you'll von overall is Steve bombers quest to build this team's fan base working yes. I think. It's probably working more marginally than they would like because again. I think the Lakers are just such a cultural Establishment in Los Angeles. You know they really are in my opinion the team of a but I think this is going to be a long for the clippers. Short-term BUTTS TRY to maximize his champion window with Kawhi Leonard with Paul George. Try to win a title within the next four or five years hopefully even multiple titles and start to kind of shift the conversation shift the history head into their twenty twenty four arena with some momentum. And then you know long term looking at the next decade. The next two decades three decades. Let's win multiple championships. Let's establish a culture and a history and a brand in our new arena. Let's continue what we've done around the L. A. Area giving back with with you know building basketball courts. Different charities and initiatives and that's really been what they've been trying to do us in Steve. Lomas become the owner. You're on thanks so much for joining us and enjoy the game on Sunday. Appreciate it man. Thanks for having me. You can follow Yovany. Buddha's coverage of the clippers and all of Steve bombers boss moves at the athletic dot Com. Hey I'm David From Los Angeles. I've been clippers fan for eighteen years summarizing from Detroit so I grew up a huge pistons fan and so I'm really anti Lakers fan so when I moved to La. I had to choose a basketball team. Not Being Lakers fan shows the clippers and this is when they're horrible to and I just kind of stuck with them and now we got and you know we're looking we're looking positives. My name is Chelsea Reba. I moved to La from DC about six and a half years ago and the wizards. I mean they're not great but I love basketball. I've always loved basketball. And they play so when I moved to La. I was like. Oh probably be a Lakers fan. I like purple also. Everyone's a Lakers fan. But then I got here and I saw the prices and I was like under your Clippers Fan. And it's been great. I like seeing. More Clipper bumper stickers. I like seeing more fans out there. you know. I think it doesn't take away from the super fans who have liked it for so long. I feel like clippers ran is someone who's there to have a good time there because they like watching the sport not necessarily for cloud. There's a lot of influencers who go to the Lakers games like. Yeah just rich people wanting the they go to Lakers clippers is more like I like the game. I almost relief clippers more to the dodgers. Like if you like them you love Them. You have to Enjoy losing It's almost like counterculture to say. You're you're like in the clippers so cool on another level you know. Everyone loves a winner and if they can bring home a title this year. This'll be all about clipper town. So much the Lakers. In fact they would be a huge defeat to the Lakers clippers. One and all this year here are some other stories. We're following add the lead. Parana virus concerns aside. Olympic athletes are prepping for the upcoming Tokyo Games.

July twenty six and I just WanNa start this show with the same enthusiasm and energy that Steve Bomber had at the Kawai Hawaii Leonard and Paul George Press Conference just fired up to be here today pretty pretty cool. I love that guy. He is Howard Dean as an N._F._l.. Or as an N._B._A. Governor I almost use the Oh word right dykes. It was great like watching him. <hes> at the introductory press conference he just like explodes with energy. He's got it strikes me as a guy that has like a tasers hooked up to his genitals every time his his heart rate increases beyond like seventy beats per minute just keeps them going until he passes out. He is so much fun. We predict I mean we wasn't like a big production because everyone saw this coming put the coli Leonard Robot mixed with Steve Bombers over the top insane. Insane energy is a match made in heaven and Jane Silent Bob Yeah Pretty Much I Nikolai to show up for games like a black leather duster yeah and then in and see bomber just going absolutely insane and end on top of all of that credit st bomber. There's definitely like an owner cool that excuse me fuck out. There's definitely a governor do that happens. When a guy you know because a lot of these guys made their money either being nerds or whatever it may be they buy it says a lot of money and being a nurse there is there's a shitload of money being near daring revelatory every fucking Dana's instagram story <hes> so they by a team the first years they're still themselves then they get a little cool mark Cuban Cuban member when Mark Cuban used to go to maverick's games with Baggy Jeans and Maverick Football Jerseys <hes> that Look Yep st bomber credit to him he still looks like he is ready to present like the new update to clip in Microsoft Ninety eight with his blue button-down shirt Khakis and sweating through all of it de- definitely still works on slide shows and spare time? He has like a million people that work for him that all do slide shows. He's still like his home. Screen is like the powerpoint websites. Make sure there's no upright for him. You know what I need into yeah. He hasn't gone to- no he's not to call. I hope he never ever gets to nerve. I can't wait for the clippers to make a deep run in the playoffs to see how bomber talks about the officiating in between Games. If he gets screwed to cry he'll cry or he will just what Adam silver. You can't find a man for crime matter of fact. That's the that's the last thing Adam silver would ever do because he is on a full war against toxic masculinity and mental health has hashtag. Let bomer cry E. I can just imagine it yeah he he wouldn't have any coherent like statement to make he would just get in front of the Mike Start to talk and then just start balling and sweating and saying how much he loves the guys in how they work that clearly work work work a quirk can't he can't not give a Microsoft presentation from the late nineties and everything he does. He's got a great nerd body type two. I notice about Steve Bomber but his it looks like he wears a large from the shoulders to the bottom of the nipples. Got Thorax is a large and then everything else below that is like a double X._l.. Right and he wears these polo shirts that look like they were at one time full button ups that he just had him together and got rid of the bottom buttons. I love him. I love him.

We have our training camp tour coming up so you're GONNA WANNA get barstool gold. Sometimes I see these football guys that's right. It's going to be great continent. Sometimes I wonder how many people that listen to part of my take have no idea what we look like whatsoever because there's gotta be. There's GonNa be a percentage of our audience at right yeah. That just doesn't know <hes> you probably are for the best not knowing sometimes but I'll say this today we look good. Yeah we have really swag in Iraq and the Hawaiian Polo. I'm rocking a college hurt which is always first time whatever you have a caller on hake and I both are like you got court today yeah exactly what he got live a life leisure. How many of those shirts did you buy a lot of this? Yeah what my style I'm exclusive when you when you're overweight you have a choice and the choices lose weight or where designs and patterns that shield your band tits. You feel like you're on the ladder like you're neglecting the shirts that you used to wear before you know. It's more of a summer thing. I'm not gonNA wear this fucking January. You look like a senator at Jimmy Buffett concert. That's exactly the vibe I'm going for. I WANNA be like if you see me. You're like hey that guy could either you know go have a Margarita or smoke some really shady wheat exactly that's a perfect image for that is accomplished. I think I've just peaked as a human being all right so training camp. Yes we have the classic training camp. What outfit slash vehicle do people come in Jalen Ramsey came in a bring struck? Yes the packers are riding their bikes like away every summer. <hes> you've got mad fucking massacre shots so cute. It's so cute. Matt Patricia is crushing the arrival game this year. He's got a motorized golf cart as the half the division of the N._F._C. North. It's becoming the division of carts. He's got leflore. WHO's out there driving his golf cart around with the Achilles injury? When that stricter he just he just concentrated like I don't feel great for Matt Patricia? I just saw we've heard feels like a bowling injury. He strikes busy guy at one point drop the bowling bowl and his foot this off season didn't WanNa make a big fuss out of it yeah but he's showing up in a car. I want as many coaches as possible in that division to be driving around golf carts put like little balloons autumn sorts like Mario Kart. If you get hit by Eric Pass it pops with three times practices over <hes> we had tree Cohen came in one of those very unsafe like weird cars. The road stirred where there's two seats in its three wheels. You wheelers gives the fuck Outta me yeah. I don't like that get rid of that. I don't like that I mean it's probably more stable than a motorcycle driving those through for that yeah when you see a person driving one of those things you just think like okay nobody has ever resold one of those cars. You just totally totally right. You just drive it until it's done yeah. Please please get rid of that and then <hes> we all metaphor for running backs career. It's actually perfect metaphor. We have <hes> injuries and then also suspensions <hes> till Luanne from the Tennessee Titans and he got popped for. P._D.'s seems like he might be innocent so we'll just say we have is back. Yeah we got us back. We got your back man. He said that he took a polygraph too. Yeah he's prepared to turn those over. I'm sure goodell will take that to always one hundred percent. He will accurate. He's pulling the O._J.. Defense right he'll spend the rest of his life looking for the real piss correct so you got it we we we will also guy shop every morning looking for it. We got your back also Ezekiel Elliott holding out he was not on the plane pain to go out to are they in Oxnard California so he did not get on the plane. We Got Plane Watch but there's a good chance that his ego might just be on a no fly list yup given his past indiscretions. Don't want him touching stewardesses Mitchell showed up carrying a cooler Mitchell did he did okay okay now works. I like that I like the old packed lunch or so. Well no I it depends because there's some teams that have sold out on training camp and it's the worst where they basically just do it at their practice facility and then everyone gets to go home the old school rule like the bears still do it on a college campus so the you guys you guys like these three hundred pound lineman walking in with toilet paper and fans. It's awesome. That's the best that's training. It's just like us the pictures I think he posted one of Kyle long walking out there was the old picture of Charlie Whitehurst Right Kyle Orton carrying a guitar with it's like that picture they got when they <hes> who they catch. It was like Dan Zig walking out from a store carrying a big bag kitty litter. It's always funny pointing to see like these legends just yeah there's millionaires. Oh I need to bring my playstation and a bunch of like a bunch of like Diet Cokes Yeah Yup. I S school so we brought it. He was it a nice cooler at least or was it like a classic Coleman Yeti. Oh yeah that was an ad yet. He seems like that's a classic gift for a quarterback to give his offense. Lineman shrew getty doesn't need like pay people frats one of those they're above it. I'd like to get to them though the opposite red bull yeah. That's that's when you know you made it. When you know rebelled as neither they just give people red bull right and they're like will you just you have a shitload of followers we just tweeted out with their Dana holders and still alive and he's just a walking advertisement for so?

This guy is walking walking bundle of energy. He's the future the franchise. I think we're all behind. Daniel Jones fucked up. That's what that actually might be a plant from Archie to motivate Eli. That's not as way about idea just rattle that cage. I was actually this is going to be bad news news for Daniel Jones if he does get the star job just because of archie yeah because the big cash cow they've got. It's going to be tough to like believably market game. Warn fake Eli Manning Merchandise. He's the backup quarterback yeah. No they'll find a way I'm sure uh-huh find a way for spot duty at the end so that they can sell those fucking get them in for maybe get them in for a wildcat play out wide. I'll say this Eli manning would be an excellent wildcat quarterback where your job is. Just stand up and look click. Your mom lost you at the Mall Yeah and get one yard yeah. That's exactly what it wildcat. quarterback needs to do all right before we get to fire fest a quick word from <hes>. This is Kinda funny. We were talking about. P._D.'s the boys it's an Amazon TV series yeah so superheroes. Everybody loves them. They swap out of the sky and save the day they give out. They give you that warm cozy feeling that everything will be all right but what if superheroes weren't all they seemed what a superheroes embraced race the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame abusing their abilities and manipulating the public recklessly vein ego driven image-obsessed in all on a quest to gain limitless power who would stop them. What that's where the boys come in a rag tag group vigilantes? The boys are out to save the world from the good guys. They're not doing this from the goodness of their hearts. They've got bones to pick with the soups. They're ready to expose the truth and they're willing to fight dirty to get the job done. Our heroes have no idea what coming for them based on the best selling graphic novel the Amazon original series the boys premiers July twenty six only on Amazon prime video so check it out July twenty six fire Fest Hank thank and then we'll do our mount rushmore art have a few the first one is that I thought we weren't doing fire Fest Yup. Thankfully my life is a fire fest so I am moving next week originally the place that I moved into someone to know they told told me that I can move in. I don't need that. Why didn't you move? That's the that's not the WHO buys some pizza. He's totally can move in July twenty ninth and my lease ends July thirty first so I was like that's plan then yesterday. My building told me that the person who owns the building has a friend living there so I can't move into August I but my building currently is telling me I have to be out July. So you have everything up you have to move out at eleven thirty at night and then drive drive over and move in at twelve thirty you you get a truck. You put everything in there and then you just park it overnight I've had to do it sucks oranges. It's terrible terrible. It is terrible but that's what you're going to have to do. You just put it on U-haul then parking somewhere safe for the night and then move in the next day. If I can sucks. I've done it. Just sleeping your truck to sorry because I'm going to have to do it. A moving company might be able to handle that. They probably deal with that stuff all time so yeah they might be able to do it so yeah. Figuring that out is is my firefighters. You have enough for moving company. That's not a mean I hope that money Florida's actions no like hanks possessions possessions. Do you have gained some cabinets okay have you do you have acquired cabinets rewired cabinets woved so the back of prebuilt and when I put together we'll prefab the place moving into doesn't have a cabinet in the kitchen node like clothing cabinets. Oh Oh okay all right yeah walk heroes to put your body body plates in shirt so so how many two of them what else T._v.'s got multiple T._V.'s heck no big deal a lot of close couch. It's mostly for the t shirts honest like the amount of t shirts that you acquire working at this job. It's astronomic but my point is he doesn't have I currently run. It's not like you're moving like a big dining room table enough huge sexual couch now you might be able to you might be able to pack this thing. We'll we'll talk off air. This is exactly why I never plan on moving. Even though I don't really like New York that much I just I hate moving more than his verse go. I moved two years ago. Okay keeps raising. The rent and I'm like Ren Sunk A._M.. I guess I guess I'll have to stick around what I'd rather not move. When I moved here I literally put my stuff in the back of big car into a loft so I had like a small cars worth of stuff and then I bar your car move last time? I've never move oh for real small Compaq S._U._v. but it's still it's a little bigger outside. Small sounds like an average smallest Fuck Compaq S._U._V. World is such a it's fraud city yeah because it's just a car and then you have like you actually don't have as much truck room as you wouldn't. A normal put a dog in and it's too and it's already crowded. You get to feel like a little bit taller than everybody else driving around. That's basically what you get any others not okay P._f._c. what he got okay. My Fire Fest of the week is <hes> I agreed three months ago to play in a rugby tournament next weekend and I forgot about it until like last week and then people started making travel arrangements and I haven't played rugby about three years and I haven't really kept my body. How do you say in shape <hes> over those three years and <hes> I've got to shoulders that need surgery that I forgot about and I if I come back the Monday after this tournament with no broken bones that will be a tremendous success are just putting putting you on pre alert for for handicapped P._F.? T just don't go. We've talked about this. You said he already paid for the the House that you guys rented that means you can more so don't go by saying hey guys. I'll still pay for it. That's my favorite spot to be when I when I canceled like a Bachelor Party and I'm like why already paid so you guys can't even be mad at me so the thing is I know I told you that I had paid. I I plan on paying so pay no. I haven't paid J. Your penalty fee. I will be paying for the. It's going to be bad. A rugby terminal like this is like a fire fest because it's an a tiny any town there are going to be like tents weird hotels set up that normally don't accommodate a lot of people we shitty meals out the field <hes> I. I just sounds awesome. I game plan is maybe play for the first twenty minutes fake injury then a nice move is as you get to drunk on accident. I had too many beers so I can't play and then you just sit on the sidelines arrested time yeah or just don't even play just get drunk. Skip the fake injury. I'll just stay drunk. Show up hammered. Yeah my liver livers yeah. I'm throwing up. It must be allergies. <hes> you know that's that's a pretty big big ones. Yeah I am going to go and I'm probably part <hes> all right. My Fire Fest is since we're like halfway through the summer. I got my email for for my pickup basketball game that runs in the fall in the spring and see who's in and I think it's a joke but the guy who's running. It said we're GONNA bring back shirts and skins okay. I like it. I think gets a joke. You just have to get their early enough to make sure shirts every time. I don't think I complain if it's shirts and skins now. I think it's a joke so there. There's always an outlet for that like sometimes when I played shirts and skins you get the guy that's wearing the white tank top the wife beater no that that can accounts no you have have to go shirts and skins. What did we get you one of those t shirts? That's just like a naked ladies body on your skin type two. That's that is the worst. There's IT's a joke. It's got to be a joke but it is fire fest because I'm actually sitting here saying I cannot play basketball anymore. If it's shirts here's what you do you offer very generously to buy Jerseys League to or the thing I've thrown out every time. Wasn't anyone bring a dark shirt and a light shirt. You can do that and it's easy but everything maybe we'll go back. Ah Design for Jersey then you can just show up and be like hey yeah but then I had his Jersey and you know you'd lose that's true I would every Saturday morning. I'd wake up just furiously looking for my Jersey Yeah that I can't find because I don't know where I put it because I never put it in the same spot and and then yeah everybody else has to remember. There's no chance <hes> all right. Should we do our Mount Rushmore Hank you ready <hes> all right so this is the mount rushmore of youtube videos in honor of having Kodeco and Noel Miller on the show their interviews coming coming up there to really really funny comedians tubers tubers <hes> so we thought it'd be perfect time to do.

It's a professional youtubers. Yeah I mean like yeah. I'd say we on the other show we describe ourselves as the the bad boys of the Internet good well. We're GONNA have a bad boy turf war but they said do basically our producer Hank said that you guys are US <hes> west coast us okay without the sports. Oh okay so we'll talk about sports.

Put Him in the ring with like a bunch of wolves from Scotland Yeah. Why does Dana give him a chance? Yes yeah that's our U._F._C.. Talk Tubers. I feel like sometimes youtubers. Get a bad rap although it's kind of deserved at times but just the name youtubers yeah. It's like a lame title right yeah yeah we are youtubers but like we do now. We do a lot more than that like. I was like we had cast music. We do live shows all time so it's it's <hes> entertainers I would say I liked your song short kings anthem. Oh thank you king myself. We've got a bad rap for a long time. It's like you know we suck it titi standing up San Diego boss when fucked it all up. He said US back three three hundred years. He's also declared himself to be the M._l._k.. Of Short people back that we have to disavow we have to uniformly early all this real short kings disavowal Bagel Bosman Yeah I looked of I was looking to don't ask me why successful short dudes and like top ten was like Genghis Khan Hitler Oh shit although it was horrible angry James Madison though there you go wrote the constitution there you go shout out so I wanted to talk quickly about the transition from Viney vine to youtube that you guys made fine every now and then I'll actually sit back and like man. I Miss Fine Yeah. That was a whole world that I feel like. We don't even have any of the content from it anymore. Yeah it's like it's like you have little like floating floating bits of it but now it's not like that yeah I mean I I miss. It definitely was like <hes> yeah. There's definitely still a gap like where vine used to be right like nothing is filled it right tick tock. Maybe like there's a there's a couple well good videos on tick tock now does most of it is fucking bazaar by an android phone. It's preloaded on there right. That's why you got the weirdest fucking people. It's like the U._2. Song that they gave everyone when they bought like an ipod it is windows ninety eight thousand X._p.. preloaded with back. Yes actually surprised me that nobody's he's recreated vine. It seems like it'd be a pretty simple APP to like just redo right because people loved it. I think most part vine was a popular advent. Just twitter didn't want to keep it up. You know what I feel like vine was it was just like sharable snapchat like host shit that now they would they would would not want lasting forever but that's what was good about vine as someone like a hundred followers. It'd be looking bashing the cigarette on my boyfriend in a million trillion pleasers it. There's there is a second version. I think that the guy who founded is working on he was working on and then he shut it down and now he's back working on it again. Yeah and I don't know it'll be interesting. It feels like the biggest gap is like the whole Vine Stars people who became super famous for these like six second clips and then never had a something else they lost as well. You guys obviously went to Youtube podcast. You're successful in a million different ways. I feel like there's a whole group of people who are super successful on vine and then history just lost them. <hes> yeah like our yeah. We started meg gone. That's how we got our star the loser let's talk about you have see again. Yes trust me your cooler for not knowing what this is mad. com was a weird thing where they took like basically fuck boys from vine some dude and he he made like touring business out of these like it was like a boy band with no music Lou Pearlman vibe yeah yeah yeah money off all their names I like the business model yeah and he and he took these young dudes around and and like he would just sell meet-and-greet tickets and it was like real creepy but they were always at the convention or like the Convention rooms at like the Hilton and stuff like that and then like girls would lineup to meet them and then do they the this thing or like a lot of moves right. They're pretty sick but they had one where they wrap their hands around someone's face and put the thumbs on the lips and then kiss wives are some the sound so it's not sexual assault so real yeah. This is what the world is Miss Vine. Is that guy that started that apartment complex that he'd just run out divine stars remember article on Vines Yeah Yeah Yeah no no dude but for maybe the same all right so do you guys you guys obviously like live online in a lot of your you know. This is cringe videos that you put up are talking about the Internet and the weird culture on the Internet sorry for the sirens. We have a sweet studio where just hear sirens good man <hes>. Do you guys ever get like bummed out looking at the Internet too much because that happens to me every now and then we're. I'm like man this socks yeah. I mean like I don't Know No. Don't do it okay good. That's a good thing I've seen too much. We had for instance on last show. Someone tweeted that the <hes> figured out that the office every character except Jim Pam and Oscar voted for trump and now he's like depressed about it really that you're this point where the Internet like depresses you this much it it just it's such a weird concept to me to have the Internet. Fuck your brain up so much that you can hate something used to love yeah. I feel like that's how deepened the Internet you get to these people where it's like houses real world yeah. I mean like one thing that kind of I guess like would start to bummy out his when I'm like digging too hard for things to like. That's that's what this format sort of like requires you to do you like after a while. It's just like it so that's why we've started making like different types of videos and stuff like that and you know make them more music and stuff because it's. It's like digging videos to make right right right. You get to depress you a little right. You get to a point where you get to almost like to deepen in the these people are real conversation with the friend who is not online at all and then you realize how trivial inconsequential some shit that you care about next yes. There was something I think U._S._A.. Today had like a front page article last week about what a wife guy is so there's this trend on the Internet ed like people making continente their wives that filled on a cliff the other week yeah Oh yeah Oh yes the white they got an email sent to them and they call these guys wife guys now which I guess really are just husband's got an internet term for it now and there's an article in the front page age of U._S._A.. Today and if you weren't online and you read that you'd be like what fucking world in my living down into the weeds to really understand how fucked up your brain gets all right online. You Know Yeah Yeah Yeah definitely we. It's funny now because people watch like you know us like reactive videos and stuff and they'll send us stuff and say you guys should react to this and it's just like some person with like a thousand subscribers who's maybe just like little clueless Louis or not self aware and it's like he just wants to blow this guy's life up and like what he's doing is weird but Jesus Christ. They're not gonNA look at this Morono right right yeah some responsibility finding that line <hes> how much you guys are both from Canada. How how much is has that helped <hes> critique? I guess Internet Cultures Internet culture but I feel like a lot of this is Americans being very very weird yeah. I'm like fake Canadian. Oh I was born in Toronto but I moved to L._A.. Real Young AH Y yeah right yeah pretty much cody. You're real Canadian real blown Canadian all the way there is a Canadian Internet. Different is the same everything ends dot C._A.. fucking really we are the Canadian pranks just like <hes> paying for somebody's pink too much for some hang off your for someone's Tim Hortons in your backyard awesome Moose content video the other day just a moose chilling out on yard. Yeah the sprinkler was so hot that the Moose was just laying down on a sprinkler all the time and they're like no. I have seen Moose like like plenty in Banff and shit like that. Though here's a huge was the Canadian snow the white just moose instead of deer replace Bambi with the most doubling down honestly tell me anything about Canada and I'll I'll believe yeah. I know that it's only a couple hundred miles away but you could seriously like Moose are actually the ones that animate all the cartoons the elephants brush. I'm curious with this because I think we have a similar feeling of at what point we like Yo. This is actually job and we can do this full-time because we kind of got we went ass backwards into this profession and eventually along the way we're like wait. This actually pays well and telling people you're a podcast. There isn't super embarrassing. Even though it's still is what do you do on a podcast or what point we like. This actually is a profession now fully new. You knew professionally off ten years ago. Yeah Uber's weren't real yeah yeah shoot <hes> well. It started with cody had he got his visa changed so we used to be software engineer so he because is visa change he had to quit and he had to become like an entertainer so it's kind of we're kind of so making videos together and he was figuring it out and then <hes> we really weren't making that much money wasn't enough like coming from being software engineers having a salaried wait salary yeah and then basically switching to okay. Let's like what's really try and figure out how to make money on content and that that point it was like youtube videos. We were like monitoring but like not nearly enough right live L._A.. Right and I and so then I got about a year into that. I got laid off from my job as an engineer. We're going to the same company and Cody said <hes> don't get a job. Let's let's go for broke like fuck it and so we start a podcast and then and thankfully like we started Patriot in that kind of like put some stability in there <hes> from there we were able to build on top of that <hes> I. I guess we both would feel a little bit like because we're so new to it. It's not like official not there yet yeah so we we feel we have to hustle real hard. Make sure it's you know it's lasting right right. What do you would? How would you describe what you do to somebody who just like meeting somebody new on the streets or something software engineer? Oh Yeah Yeah and I do comedy on the side there ever any point where you were a little bit nervous putting to be putting so many eggs like Youtube S- basket like their monetization baskets like if they change their algorithm or the business model or something I mean it's GonNa fuck with us yeah but that's the reason why <hes> there's so many ways to monetize now. If you're a creator that it forced us to like figure out different streams like yeah when youtube like when it was going through that apocalypse shit that's why I started a podcast because it was like longer form stuff was easier monetize yeah and and so like it just forces you to kind of adapt. You think it's like any anything yeah. Do you guys ever do the fake videos on Youtube where it's like an explosive headline and there's just static picture. Someone tried does the Mafia boss got shot and killed in Staten Island. We put up a youtube on our channel that was like explosive footage of Mafia boss gunned down and then it was just as picture wikipedia underneath those always get me always get sure you've been in one hundred percent. Such bullshit works graph Urbina. WHO's evert knocks out cardio? Shins is a picture of his instagram here my thoughts on news evert some random talk to you can headphone microphone scratchy Shit. Yes you're not the WACO watch. Watch the whole thing you start to see like hey guys. Is that like that's code for you. It hasn't say it's youtube requires it by law is it's like the pledge of allegiance always also just like if you're if if one of your videos isn't doing as well as you thought it'd be just add gone wrong at the end of like or band commercial those toss those and headline gone sexual gone sexually wrong gone sexually wrong is good one commercial. What do you think is the reason why people do so much dumb shit online? Put It on line. That's a good question I mean I think that's kind of Ma- so we do like a series called Steamy tweets on my channel and the way I would describe it as like people don't realize the Internet's available to everyone. I think it's like some people upload stuff thinking that the Internet is key like it's just they're part of the Internet and it's like now man. Someone's going to find that put that on a blog <hes> as I think that's what it is also just think there are people that just want that attention yeah true thereafter it true. Have you ever uploaded something. That was is actually cringe on your part that then you got roasted foreign. You're like Oh shit. It's not so fun being on this side of it <hes>. We've done a bunch of crazy stuff yeah but if you if you like I think if you make yourself the butter the joke like we don't take ourselves to seriously. I think the way that I just said cringe thirty four year old guy was probably pretty fucking true. They'll make yourself your joke and because that's what I love about the Internet is I laugh about all these idiots but I realized too if I were twenty two. I'd probably do the same shit yeah exactly yeah yeah yeah. It was aboard teenager. I'd probably be saying the same shit yeah I mean. That's also it like you think about. I Dunno on your fucking sixteen and someone's dad had a camera and you're like let's make videos. Those videos are dumb as fuck yeah awful favorite porn star on twitter and you're like maybe I'll just shoot. My shot might work offer Amazon wishlist yeah. It doesn't work center the follow up cash APP like hey thank you miss my Amazon gift. Just WanNa say again for you really really get. Just you know. Look your feet or what.

This is one that we just record down the street. Projects came out in February simple symbol shit for part of my take do pop punk so my own so yeah. We got to figure out a way to get that fucking Song Mexico. I have to apologize to you know all because you got verified on twitter. What does a few months ago yeah yeah all right so you tweeted? I'm just verified on twitter and now I'm ready to like Yeltsin Airlines and that's been my brand for really long title. Hell no no it's it's you were spot on verified on twitter. You're legally obligated to yell at like Delta Airlines when you're boarding takes ten minutes longer than so I but I yell on behalf of other people so if people are having problems blue check marks I always hop in and just tell like Delta skull. Fuck you exist assists and then you ask lab and I miss the message but I also remember looking. Are you actually a Vegan. No no no okay so you gotta take that out because we're we're Vegan. I was like this guy saw I swear to God I saw Vegan in the profile is like I don't like this guy. I want to him swear to God. I thought the sarcasm was obviously go right yeah. You didn't understand my sarcasm. I didn't understand yours that word jumps out though if you see that in a sentence or whatever it's like that's the one you take it. Eh Business Opportunity. I said I'm the first Vegan with S. Yeah. I don't know he's like never mind. I thought it'd be a fake Vegan with ASS would be would via to like I don't know I yeah are are you heavy Yeldan airline yet yeah fucking got in America. American Airlines asks over. D._M.'s got Dr Day up. Oh I wish I had found out of skull fucked up Ah yes. I'm actually probably on a list because I actually do tweet like American. I'm going to SCO fuck you on the F._B._i.. Note and if you look at my d._M.'s it's all to like Delta in American Airlines asking them to to telling them they need to fix someone. Else's flight lights nevermind yelling. At where do they fix well. The joke is that they will usually respond and then I'll just take credit for being like see got it done obviously doesn't gets fixed ever on these stupidly <music> online. They don't give a shit fuck and I always love how airlines response you on twitter the person that does it always puts their initials at the end of the tweets from H K. Oh Yeah I know H K Yeah Helen Right Right. Oh yes remarkably good typer apologize for that because I I'm being totally honest. Vegan threw me off. I don't think I'll ever collab- with Vegan okay being totally can know that I'm not Vegan. Thank God probably have I loved the Vegan. You just don't know you well. I WANNA take that back. That's great and retro very cringe. What do people <hes> most commonly recognize you from? If you're walking down the street <HES> <HES> it's a mix like <hes> like we can tell who is like sort of a fan of what like based on what they say yeah so it's like a come joke podcast. Listen scream sugar gay. It's Youtube of course yeah yeah and then ah no one really like knows just for music so I'll I'll get real bros.. Burn which is weird because people will that one takes takes a second for people. They'll look me like 'cause like for Youtube like they watch. I should all time they looking at my face all the fucking time right so it's like they're they'll just freak out right away. They'll know but like real bros.. It's like I think that's wait was south do burn which by the way there's no funny answer to that. Go No no not at Fox me up because I can't say anything. That's funny in response to well. You could just be like core of course hepburn yeah but then they're like now you say put it back on them. Just do burn yeah. No you should just around yes right now. Is it weird you guys being in that. This is probably another similarity clarity. Where you're you have a level of fame where people recognize you like? We don't feel famous but people look at our faces all the day all all the time yeah recognize us yeah but and then the best is when someone will say something to us and then there'll be a random person. Who are you yes well? I can't really explain it. Yeah Yeah Yeah yeah totally we. I hate that it's worth so much to that happened to me in starbucks the other day this waiting in line.

Yes hey hank actually pulled me aside earlier today because this was trending on twitter and was like what is the Clinton Body Count Hank. What did you think that it was? You were like excited to find out about it. Yeah I mean I thought it was talking about sex thought it was like you know kids these days in the talk about like what you're number is. They'll be like what your body count right so. I thought it was GONNA be funny. Hashtag with like you know. <music> scandalous actually could have been with Bill Clinton thought and that's why was like Oh shit. There's going to be funny. Ha Ha embrace two thousand tweets and I was like Bill Clinton killed more people than he's fucked <hes> so I don't know so it. Just it's a theory that just started so yeah this started I'd say back in the mid. Nineties people freaked out because they thought that the Clintons were murdering all their political adversaries right and former friends <hes> it started with the guy that made the Whitewater deal with them. Should I forget the guys named skipping in my mind right now but it's pursue this day and so anytime anybody around the Clintons dies they're like Oh. The Clintons killed them again this this Hillary Hillary can't beat Donald Trump in an election but you can get away with two dozen murders so this is because Geoffrey I've seen a was like maybe committed to tried to commit suicide or got beat up. I think he was just jacket off. Was Terada Fuck for more of the worst human time he was on the floor of his jail cell and so that's why got brought up again but this is I I always just assume like house of cards was written about the Clintons I think he kinda was right then restored but then you have to think like bio pic if this was true Anthony Wieners Dick would at least be cut off by now if not killed entirely true true so there's some there's enough so basically we can prove the Clintons didn't murder a bunch of people by the fact that they're still a few people alive. Yes anytime could defend anytime. Anthony Weiner's Weiner POPs up yes. It does several times a year. That is all the proof that you need that there you go although I would. I would really like to see Hillary. Clinton tried to kill somebody moves breaking loose where you have a lot of cows in the kitchen today <hes> the Celtics actually just signed Taco fall which is exciting okay and I wasn't the breaking that was expected right well. That just happened to oh would really like as I was saying breaking news but the other breaking news also just happened is that these song of the summer music video has finally dropped. It finally dropped a drop today late but I think it was worth the weight well north shout out to probably the best bar video. I've seen like quality wise area hood Buddha Ben really strong it together for us yeah the Song of the summers out now. We're just decided that we would write a song called the song summer kind of a little Chico smart. Yeah I mean you listen. If you're listening to this right now and you haven't heard the song summer your loser and we'll put it at the end of the show and we'll put at the end of the show is only one way to fix it and then we'll make you a winner the show yeah look at that and P._F.. T don't you have a concert coming up good question but can I do Saturday on Long Island right. You nailed it. That's inside of Long Island at McKay's Saturday night. We will see you there.

I'd art teacher take Sabbatical radical ones in that's inspirational like everyone says like they're like Oh. My English teacher in Ninth Grade Really Made Me Love Books Your art teacher taking a long vacation made you love vacations. Just not tower knew what it meant. I think that's part of the job description like if you're an art teacher feature you just ended up you get high for like a month and cold sabbatical. He'll undersell sabbatical actually just means like if somebody's too important to whatever company for you not to fire them you just say they're taking a sabbatical until things cool down for a while Maher's taking sabbatical. He's yeah yeah his entire. Life is just jobs and then something happens and he takes us and then another job yeah <hes> so learn more at built with chocolate milk dot com. Thank you wonderful <hes> all right next up before we do Jimbo's. It's Louisiana who cares we know Louisiana. It's Louisiana who wears who cares leanna who cares Louisiana Louisiana who cares good segue. I do yeah good point. Nobody in Louisiana does right because death valley just announced today that they are going to sell beer and wine inside inside the general seating areas who tiger stadium in two thousand nineteen. I love it. I love it to take every L._S._U.. Home Game Not that you wouldn't anyway but the crowd is going to be very loud never going to never gonNA waiver and some people are saying. It's not a great idea to them. I say who cares and also fuck you walk you. You don't know Shit about Louisiana. If you think this is a bad idea we'll take a sabbatical bitch yeah because would you rather have ninety thousand sober. Louisianans in a stadium probably not nope. It's like doc. Would you rather wander into a grizzly bear pen if they're really super hungry and they haven't eaten in a long time or if they're all fattened up on salmon yes exactly you want Hank Cottam you. Yes you want these lease Annan's to be nice and liquor up. It'll be more fun for everybody everybody. I'm excited for this finally finally N._C._W._a.. Stadiums like this is ridiculous. It took this long whom the hey maybe we should sell beer <hes> at the fucking football game. I can't wait until some drunk Cajun. That's been like sneaking stuff end for years. Here's calls himself. The Rosa Parks or this law still ended up bullshit here twenty four years by cores light Hank Jimbo's. Let's do it. The return sub fit cat boss baby P._F.. T in Hank I'm a lifeguard and I have to watch little kids learn to swim the other day a preschool standing next to the pool and out of nowhere. He fell in face. I instead of jumping in. I just want to see if you could swim back up. He didn't depend seconds. I went in. Is that dumber understandable. No it sounds like football coaching understandable because you just assume that he's going to be able to swim right. Why would you be the pool? If you can't swim. You know what you also probably saved that kid's life because that kids are GonNa be terrified of water and he'll never go near another pool and other lake another ocean again so he's never gonNA drown. Oh you did your job this is this visuals very funny because I think I'd do. The same thing like kid falls any like well. I'm GonNa wait and see if he's got this so much to get slowly sinks to the bottom like thought. Is someone going to get that kid all right next what's up guys. I was drunk and I was impulse buying clean tickets to go to the T. U.. N. Michigan game at Ohio State. They aren't even plant and then disease T._T.. U._N.. I don't know what that is the North Ooh Jake they're useful. Wait the Games not even the Games in in our all right everybody your car. This is not a cop over this Pete tweet at all Business Pete and calm fuck head. They aren't even playing the game at O._S._U.. This year tonight Arbor and I accidentally bought plane tickets to Columbia the country. I bought plane tickets to fucking Begajah no-fly insurance either. I booked a hotel room in Bogota as well. I'm fucked okay all right little spin zone for everybody just go. I've been in the same boat because I actually have to tickets for Michigan State at Ohio State this fall that I bought last fall when I was trying to get into the Michigan Verse Ohio State Game <hes> so I have those remind me to sell them. Yeah you gotta get rid of those soon yeah. That's that's tough break but I say just go to Columbia. It's a wonderful wonderful again not a drug guy. If you WANNA pick a country to go to you could do a lot worse than Columbia yeah really yeah. I mean there's trucks murder listen. I want to just make it clear. I think hanks and tired knowledge about the country of Columbia comes from Vince making committed in entourage and is not wrong Escobar's Escobar's thirty thirty that is wrong Columbus when there is a wonderful place none of that is wrong all right. I got in the backseat to buckle again this. I'm going raw dog here. From Jake's so bear with modules I got in the backseat to buckle my son and his car to avoid a Florida rainstorm. I buckled him in and couldn't get out of the car because the child lock was on. I had to climb over the center console into the front seat of my blow average starter vehicle Toyota Corolla and then my son told Xiaomi head poop towns like dad problem so you put your son in a flood. Yeah sounds a lot like the first person yes sounds bad. That sounds bad all right. Let's you one more thank you measure of Noah just instead of an arc doc had just a Toyota Corolla. He'll get in the only real drive only got room for insects C._D.. Player six this changer the world's GonNa be filled with insects small lizards avalon had a six six discs changer talk about luxury. I'd one of those in the back back my Volvo all the machine put in there yeah. That's got dammit. That's that's a big time like kids. Don't even know <hes> and it took like six minutes for it to change from one out of the car and go to the trunk to put a new CDs all right. This is a good one sub P._M._t. but especially P._f.. T I mean impulse decision in bought a puppy last week because I thought she was cute now. I don't have time for literally anything she bites. Everything in my house shits all over the floor and listened to nothing. I say I know once. I'm through the puppy stage. I'll be happy with the impulse decision but for now it's overwhelming P._f.. Did you get Leroy when he was a puppy and do you have any advice on taking care of pup I did. I rescued him. When he was a puppy from his parents Yup? There weren't amrried. I rescued him from his parents and the best advice I can give you about owning a puppy is just take it with you everywhere that you can <hes> and just hold it and walk with it and people you can walk into a lot of places that like I took mine to work all the time. Take them out like nine sometimes more often than you think that you have to take them also tips I I rescued Stella. When she was nine months old? She was not housetrained. That's probably why the family that gave her away gave her away but <hes> get like roast beef or some kind of really good meat from the Deli and just give your dog a little piece every time they go to the bathroom outside while they're going to the bathroom yeah. That's how I got her house trained. We literally be peeing eating roast beef out of my hand kind of weird visual none of them saying it but that works well it helps if you're like big cat and you just walk around raw dogging lunch. Tommy lasorda happened have that on you make a big deal out of every time they go to the bathroom also leave your dog in front of a T._v.. With <hes> with sports on with green so that hopefully at one point your dog will acquire the sixth sense of brick news yeah and then one day his instagram page will pay for your future sons tuition.

Episode 21: Jerry West NBA legend, GREATEST NBA EXECUTIVE OF ALL TIME

"I'm so honored to have today's guest on the podcast. Our guest is Jerry West. Yes Mr Clutch himself. Jerry played on the L._A.. Lakers for fourteen years and as one of the highest scoring players of all time he is also probably the most successful executive after his basketball career Jerry opens up about his childhood and the struggles he encountered growing up how we found basketball and even his superstitions you definitely don't one and miss this one so stay tuned and find out how D- Jerry West use his attitude inhabits to achieve all of his successes so today's podcast is one for the books in my opinion and probably a lot of other people's opinions because we have Jerry West on who really does represent represent the statement the man the myth the legend because you really do transcend that you are someone who's had success and virtually seems like everything you've done and I think what you're saying before or even started rolling was that's not even like you're not you don't define yourself by basketball. That's just what people always WanNa talk about so I guess it's a good place to start like who is Jerry West and and what drives you you with drives him you to be so good in virtually everything that you touch well. That's a really interesting question. I think it all started back my childhood. I think many times you go up in an environment this lesson desirable things that you would want in a family <hes> probably didn't exist in my family and I think it changes your perspective on things because at that point in time I would just trying to survive my family's trying to survive and I think the negativity in life as a child certainly scars you <hes> you can go to ways you can eat or try to choose as a path pleasing for you more importantly to have these dreams that you don't dare tell anyone because growing up in a small place at that point in time someone will laugh at you <hes> but that's the only thing I when I look back in my life of any success I've had my life. It was really because I was dream. When I was a little boy I was a complete loaner then the kids going up this little small little community to anything ally that I loved the outdoors I love to go in the mountains by myself? Wondering what I was GONNA see every time I would go. I would always get up to top the mountain and it's probably be a lesson. I've learned for life sometime. You get the top of the mountain and you see very same thing that you saw when you climbing up the mountain and a lot of people think by getting to the top the mountain climbing the tops <music> peak that that's very rewarding sometime the view there's not so good and I think people have real misconception of what's important in people's lives and what's been important to me in my life. Life is at my dreams where something I was able to live. I picked up a basketball when I was ten nine ten years old just out by Mysel- picked it up and and you know ah propelling it up between your legs like when you're a little kid and he couldn't get it up. They were installing enough all the bascus of were were tim feet but no they sound corny very rarely. Did I play on a court that was anything other than than dirt hurt and if they'd be rainy or muddy for some reason this allured this game and just crazy ball picked up changed my life forever and I was so glad that people never forget probably when the cruelest things everything I've ever heard in particularly when I was young I was like eleven years old and my next door neighbor and everyone ran through each loans lawn <hes> to get home mm-hmm. I never walked anywhere Iran. We never had a car never went on vacation never have bicycle until later in my life and so I was I was like forced ago at an early age. It'd be honest with you and there wasn't any way I wouldn't run up the hill down the hills. It would just just enormous energy I have but these people setting in our next door neighbors and here I am not bothering anyone and one of the things that came out of their mouth was Oh my God. What is Jerry Ever GonNa do these light? That's worthwhile. I'm ten years okay. When I heard that it was it it hurt okay it hurt because I had to go home and avenue while it was going to face it home grew up in abusive household as my other siblings did and I think that color and a lot of lessons that day you never never give up okay never and I was determined that somewhere along the way something positive is going to happen my life and all of a sudden I picked up basketball as I mentioned before and I had always that was a dreamer academic myself and situation at a very vivid imagination in the thing? That was probably something that I've taken with me. Forever is is that for some reason when people say no I used to say yes and it has served me well but the from then on I was when I was picked up a basketball I was coach. I was the announcer first and foremost but most importantly I was the official wow and so in my life feel-good went home. I could miss ten straight shot now. I'd make the last one I find a way to put a second back when the clock when I went home you know I'd conquered the world and going my house. I never knew what was I was going to face but I'm sure there's a lot of kids out there that experience the same thing when you're or by yourself basketball the rudiments of basketball can be learned by yourself and this was before way before we had all these instructional videos going to camps which I have never they couldn't afford to go but it was a pretty remarkable time in my life and I did. I did always things feel good thing H.. A. Love to fish some people fishing be slow hot summer day a humid. You said there'd be roasting right but I would always stay out there until I caught something and it made any difference when I started I wasn't GonNa quit and sounding very personal persevered persevered and you had a mental toughness and a discipline to always kind of keep on going no matter what even as a young that that was pretty much the through lion your personality and no question the other thing you know to earn money because it was this was a sparse household in terms of Ernie in terms of money being around. I used to all jobs that no one wanted to do and I hear people days well it. It was minimum wage. I don't know what I was making doing these things but I cut everyone's law ideal dig anyone's ditch. It was always going to be perfect so consequently anytime that a neighbor had something to do that asked me to do it because they know I'd do. It and I'd get paid sometime dollar and I'm going Oh my gosh all the money in the world and acer take the money and it was a rug in our house little tiny place we lived in and I would take this money and put it under the rug now and sometimes I forget about and my mother will be taking sweeper and going around and here she was his lump in the thing here might be ten or fifteen dollars there that I had earned and and <hes> that's how you know bought a basketball about my bought my fishing stuff and then I started to get into hunting there wasn't much around into to hunt but it was just a unique childhood that unfortunately I had to show with myself. No one knew what was going on. Mind is crazy. This crazy thought process young age because you had a difficult difficult childhood and you had abuse and all that stuff that also propelled you to want to sixty like the gave you that that Ri- to get out of there that fear failure that you'd still stay there if you didn't make it somewhere so did that help you kind of push or were you. Oh yes but a lot of way there's so many obstacles I was really little tiny and real a wind blew had bloom blew me away skinny but I think thanks the thing that was really interesting to me and maybe the first time at ever felt incredible rejection for trying to Leeann athlete how always really fast no one could catch me and so that was a strength that could run and jump even a little age but I remember the first time I tried out for the basketball team of the seventh Grade A and I was so tiny and so almost intimidated by anyone who was in command <hes> I was brought up and still very much today yes or no sir thank you please person and it wasn't until I got the being the ninth grade that had a chance to play on my junior high school team and I was looking the other day. I don't know why I saw this picture of me and in this uniform and S._M._S.. Oh My god God what happened here. Okay how skinny little kids look like wastes trying to do something made you feel good and even Dan. I had no clue that I would ever be get enough. I would you just somebody who loved to compete and boy so my life changed that summer my summer my ninth in going into high school tenth grade. I grew about out six inches one summer but I didn't gaining weight. I looked like look like crane skinny and but I'd gotten to the point where I grew so fast us we had this set of stairs and it's a little house we lived in. I would run up in the fall down rundown and fall down so it was pretty <hes> pretty funny to all of a sudden I grew and I was happy about it but not to be able to. You had no balance. You had. Nothing like everything happened overnight but I think the interesting thing was is that all of a sudden because I got taller I felt I felt like belonged in the real world and then when I got to hide that year I got high school I was like six three hundred forty eight pounds and and I played junior varsity team mm-hmm we played all the same schools that are high school teams played and obviously I wasn't good enough then to play on Varsity team but something happened. I started playing real well in these games and <hes> the J._V. Games and coach decided to promote me up to the varsity and the coaches head coach assistant coach they were both football coach and so they bring me up there in the first game I play escort fourteen points in the last quarter of a high school game against one of our arrivals and we wanted game and I wanted to play one more game that was another rivalry voice Charleston Highschool okay the Big Charleston Highschool Sake capital and I go down there and I broke the navicular not bitten INVICTA Abon but metatarsal bone and so they put me in a cast and so my whatever left of my varsity career was done in the doctor a walking cast and the doctor says will what you should you do. I said well he's he's sitting pretty much. You can't break these things okay well. I broke seven of them and the funny part of it was I was still play basketball with this with this cast on and there was really some funny things. Oh my gosh so you know you played on baskets. Were you know not stationary and I remember one day. I was playing some guy I was shooting a shop and I remember the character peg-leg Bates okay as long ago. He's the dancer and I got hit on this thing and then knocks me out in the hall in the school principals homeless hitting out the door and that was kind of you know one of the funny things hangs it can happen with that but it fortunately healed without any other any problems and then my junior year again I just gotten better and you know I've learned to shoot myself and always was a pretty good shooter but I got to the point where I was much more competent and still had not lost the ability to run in jump and <hes> so by the time. I got to be a senior in high school. <hes> by the way in junior high school school had average about twenty eight points a game. I had not one college offer and playing in the best best competition in the state and then by the time I was a senior we win the state championship kinship and played it West University where of course recruited to went to school. I wanted to go to my state university and I'll never forget that those days in the state tournament I said all the state scoring records all the rebounding sounding record and fouled out of both games with a lot of time in one game often wondered scored forty points and had about twenty rebound years ago but <hes> <hes> but I didn't play hardly last quarter valve out but we'd had a big lead and we went to stay championship which wasn't expected and all of a sudden these offers started coming. There's some incredible stories. Wait about the recruiting process and frankly I couldn't take it anymore. I went home one day and there was four coaches from four big universities setting this little chairs outside of my house on a little. Tiny porch my mother was over there drinking coffee and hot and human and she said to all for these guys and again I was really quiet and shy as he said all four guys she said you know I don't really care where he goes but wanting to go to West Virginia so obviously she was swayed by that but it was probably the best choice second made with all the crazy offers I got and obviously to point in time. People were pretty loosener recruiting. What was it like that then like? What kind of offers would you beginning back? Then versus how it is now it must be a huge discrepancy will for me then and it was. I don't really want to get into it because it doesn't make any difference but my father didn't make a lot of money but I could have actually gotten paid about three times what he got paid going to school by number school and something always always always been reticent to talk about because it really wasn't there wasn't a lot of governments on athletes going to school but it was flattering to me but I didn't get one thing for going to West Virginia University but there's two best decision I made in my life. Well and why do you what would you. Why do you say that you think that was the moment that was a that changed trajectory in your life beyond when you were at ten years old and when someone said to you what are you ever GonNa make yourself? Do you think there's another one of those moments. I'm pretty loyal okay and always have been and just I'd gone up there. One time. When I was a kid with my brother-in-law point in time he sends to see obviously and they took me to a game up there and I just fun excitement in this little gym that was about sixty four hundred people jammed pack and I couldn't sleep after the game and as that that's pretty exciting but I wasn't thinking about playing in West Virginia University at twelve years of aid but it's the best season have ever made a lot of the state of West Virginia? I love the help people are back there. It's it it really is probably the foundation of WHO I am today. I'll never forget where I came from. The state is important to me. They've universities particularly important to me and frankly been charity my choice and <hes> I will never shirk that responsibility because again the foundation my life while to learn they're the people they don't have a lot in particularly today as the coal industry is faded out and not as viable it state that needs reawakening <hes> they have a workforce their hardworking people and the thing they know is hard work and it's not there anymore so <hes> I have a home in West Virginia. He's spent three months there and yes. You can't do it because I have a son's going to get married on August attainable well. He's a nicer man. She's Nice Young Lady so I'm hopeful that this'll be your son. He works with the Golden State warriors correct and his Mary Johnny Johnny West and he's married he and Michelle we first Golfer offer. It looks like a pretty impressive Matt say you can just feel feel the closeness they have and <hes> somebody always says soulmates have had have had a couple of people in my life and that have been my soul mates and and you just do something special about those people that you don't don't ever forget. It didn't happen very often hundred percent so so I was Gonna ask you a question. A little bit earlier about European do believe that raw talent or mindset is more important when becoming great at anything basketball. I know you you seem to have very very strong you discipline and competitive nature but how much of that was also talent or did you with more the mindset of your drive in your wanting to be the best and well I I would say that there's a couple of things you know. Some people are born differently their minds organize differently and particularly athletes and the one thing that if I was GonNa ever pat myself on the back that have always been competitive competitive no matter what they know losing is not in my vocabulary and I've learned how to lose but it's still don't like and and then just raised how raise it talk taught me the significance of how how important it was to compete at a high level. You know a lot of players point in time. I hardly ever went out in my room. When I played it was all basketball and I think that thing that mattered most was after games? I was really hard on my cell and when I got to the point in my career when I felt academic the outcome games and it was a number of years I could affect the outcome the game if we lost I would go back to my room and I would kill myself in criticism not a healthy thing to do and in and it's it's a curse to live of with but that's how I was raid not raised but that's how my mindset was getting to get into different level felt that was one thing was very important but once you get to where you physically mature and when I came into the N._B._A.. I wait one hundred seventy two pound one hundred seventy two pounds and I was six four and a half everyone used to say six two and a half and I had forty and sleeve linked to that makes hugh lot bigger and it just something that has competing in certain players I started to get to the point where they didn't concern me and I don't mean that respectful leaving the I just felt that I had an edge and not only physically but competitively mentally mentally ill absolutely and my mind as say my mind. I don't forget what players do I can go back over the years and talk about players and their strengths and weaknesses in my mind was like an encyclopedia so even for the Games and you don't have the same kind of preparation you do cames. Were you might play through sometime four nights in a row in different cities. That's hard to do Atari on your body but as you go along and more experience you have you don't have to weigh about what someone will tell you about what these players going to do. You have in your mind and I think that's one of the things that when I look at my life while maybe it'd been simple for me to play the game. I'm always said one thing that determines players who stand out in every era would be the people whose seat a game in slow motion. If you're going fast all the time it's too fast that allows these people that truly are above the others regardless of what the people throw the term superstar around so loosely today that it does it doesn't. I don't think it's there might be at any given time top. Stars are true superstars. I would never go there because I was slight some people along the way they're just players. I've had respect for an all generation starting from sixty or seventy eighty ninety two thousand two thousand ten two thousand twenty coming every period you see a different in different players and we're starting to see really very gifted players early age. They have been so schooled in terms of a you cams uh-huh camps were that are skill cams and the ones who identify themselves. Obviously you'RE GONNA get the most attention and sometimes when I see the ones who get the most attention. He Watch him go to college in some. I'm a lot of hit that wall. They can't be get the on that wall and that's why they get into N._B._A.. As great as they were and going up and all the accolades they received going up they get that wall and they came. Breakthrough is one quality that you look for when you could. You have such a great I obviously for talent. They'd say probably the best ever of all time is our. It's obviously gut instinct. I think that you feel it but is there. Something that you're specifically looking for is it. Well people always talk about basketball I._Q.. Unfortunately we have. I don't say unfortunately a part of the game. Today is the fact that we have so many analytical people involved in the League and many times as way people into thinking that are presenting facts disguise truly better than someone I don't. I'm not a big Fan of analytics and let me tell you why they I think they're great teaching tools. I think they're great for coaches as as skylight to go left ninety percent of time if a guy that's good enough and he's really star. He might go with ninety percent of time. He's still not gonNA stop him. He's GonNa find a way over here but there are so versatile. They're going to get to the other side too but I think the one thing you can't look at. You can't look you had a heart. You can't look mine. I think a lot of mistakes made in her have been for years in people overestimating and drafting for need <hes> to me about skill the person's desire to compete excel right so it's about their mindset about their competitive how mental toughness again how competitive they are how driven the are to be to be the best I guess right. Would you say you were more competitive in your while. You're playing basketball or as an executive now. We're going to impose as a player. It's a different kind of competitive. You know you're not only playing for your team playing for the city and you playing for the fans so I don't know how players think today but that was I felt that was a great sense of responsibility ability to try to win for your fans. You know you see the free agency today as I say I've always been a pretty oil person in my life. I would've loved to have had an opportunity a a free agent to see if I could be tempted to go somewhere else and someone would not be able to try to influence my thinking. If I were going to be a free agent by presentation station showing me you know the city live in the glamour. <hes> all the other opportunities it was strictly about basketball to me tricked me and today because an enormous amount of money the agents and a game the way it's played today have been the most significant chain in basketball that I have seen all my fifty fifty some years in this game the agents they dictate where players go <hes>. I feel sorry from the some small market team <hes> but I don't know how you level the playing field. I really don't but it's okay for people to seek <hes> and I'm not critical players at all. If you WANNA go somewhere you go. There's one time in my career. I definitely did not want to play for the Lakers because we're told me really oh. Yes well does matter Matt of what happens. Just don't say yes or no. That's the most important wow and I wanted to leave so badly but yet I didn't have the opportunity but I would've left might have been a mistake but I would've left city. I love playing for the fans watching the game. Grow thing involve only team to west coach and look at first team the Lakers today look what happened to this franchise since they've been the city the first team here ever forget when when I got here hell no one even knew what basketball was about baseball and football awesome. I'll never forget I two games. We played here than the all sports arena. There was a calendar over the thing and so first night there was like four thousand eight hundred twenty the next night it was like forty two hundred and he get there and playing and I was used to playing a sellout corral golly and the atmosphere we had to be playing the New York Knicks back to back game and you know offshore. Certainly we wanted to win that almost felt that they were forty eight hundred transplant a New Yorkers rooting for the Knicks and to see the way the franchises grown and to see what's happened to the Lakers here those obviously the most special lawyers in my life to be able to play there be able to coach there for three years and have an opportunity work with incredible owner. Jerry Buss was really pretty special you know he believed in me trusted in me and we had such that's a different relationship <hes> for someone who's working with someone and learned a lot from him. If he was a good guy he's a man of the people and so my ears Tuesday were filled with a lot of fun excitement saw off a lot of winning and that's all this city become a Laker city not a dodger city not Aram city they eventually down and at one time I can remember the dominant and we run the last page. If three newspapers in town now all of a sudden we have one daily newspaper in Los Angeles Times and other newspapers in smaller areas that don't have the same circulation they we used to have and all of a sudden Akron remember the Herald Examiner and you saw the Lakers creeping up from the last two second phase and all of a sudden most dominant team town great thing for me to see I can imagine that's kind of like an I'm telling you I'm Canadian and my first job was that the raptors and it was the same thing because it was a first year it was an expansion team and Toronto's also hockey and baseball all and it was the same thing and slowly but surely the raptors will now I mean I was going to even I didn't want to even start asking you of course about the obvious current affair of the coup that you're able to accomplish with <hes> No of course what's going on at the clippers because I figured it's all over the place anyway but but that was the kwaidan amazing thing that you accomplished well. It was me never never one. One person to be part of it was really fun. I worked for me credible people now I mean really incredible as good as any fun office I've ever seen in this league and impeccable owner Steve Bomber and you know. I don't know if I'll get fined for this. Say it anyway if I were if I were young player was ever be able to get involved with Steve Bomber at this point in time this I'd have to listen to him. He's a pretty amazing man for the enormous success. He's had never always talks about his wealth <hes> he's he's like Jerry Buss really he's like Jerry Airbus. He's a people person Jerry was more conservative but this one is more enthusiastic but if you're with him and his wife it's just amazing how how ground the day or it really is pretty grim. I love hearing that because exactly what you said from what my perception is Steve Bomber. He's he's known to being one of the wealthiest men in the country and what you know and then when you say he's also down to earth and seems very normal. That's that's a that's a big compliment to give somebody well. He's he's great. He really is I you know I don't like to go overboard on people because set at a number times about him but here's philanthropy is beyond belief really and he keeps quiet and he and his wife together. I don't even know what they do in terms of giving but he's just it's one of those people like your next door neighbor right. You'd never know if we get to know her next door. Neighbors probably not very often. That's very true but it's nice to know. I feel like that actually means. It's very authentic genuinely. He's not doing it for rare bracket to to Brag or look at me but it's more coming from the right place which is his heart and like I said when you're have that kind of wealth and that kind of success you know you tend to not really know the person so to hear that that here that he's so will kind and authentic genuine generous as he would be if you were in a meeting with him and around him the CR reacts with People Treat People. He's he's pretty amazing and south which enough to be now here with him. This is my third year. Obviously I'm getting to the end of my time as involved in this sport. I've been around a lot but as I a final resting place sometimes been three other teams in Memphis with lake. Mike Heisler who is an incredible guy himself very philanthropic himself and with the warriors unique ownership group up there air to cease this success they've had and friends are made up here and to be involved with this group. I am today the clippers the final say have as I mentioned for Oh my goodness they've had the best of the best doesn't make any difference Steve will left will lead no stone unturned in order to have the best of the best care. The players treatment at employers is paramount paramount in his mind and when he gets arena built it will be the best arena in town. It will be the best arena in the league. He is as I say he is. He's a Man of vision and thing that I I love about him. Is He is competitive. I mean really competitive where other people you know. Does he take an active part very very much so does he tell a pseudo-draft no but they're such interacting. We have meetings over there. I don't know what teams and leg would do this. We have meetings over there. That are all the basketball people a lot of my former coaches are scouts and people who contribute we might and have twenty twenty people twenty five people in a room discussing players disgusting you know how can we get to this point in time. Would we be able to move here to get this player. <hes> the openness of this organization is amazing mating. It's not a close shop and when you get in environments like that. Those are really healthy really healthy and again. I don't want to say that there's other organizations not like that because you're more it closed in. Everyone's afraid of we leaks well. The leaks many time come from the same people who WanNa close shop you look at a very popular figure in this league reports stuff Adrian Whoa Jankowski he has toys come out before before their mouth there and housing it. He maintains a gray relationship with the agents <hes> he made your great relationship with G._M.'s and so if you're going to tell people depress though saying why why why not why why people in the front office I make a true quietude him but I have with our guys. It's not ego driven. It's Oh my gosh the kidding ribbing that I get which I love. I don't like anyone to be benevolent. Never to me. I don't want him to be uncomfortable for me and I don't want anyone to thank many better than anyone. I'm not I want to rebound people want to have fun and don't take themselves to seriously but take what they do seriously yeah yeah that's true. That's also a great life lesson as well right like everything you're saying. I think it doesn't just apply to basketball. It applies to everything in life and the traits the qualities. It doesn't matter what what what industry you're in. Hey Hope you're enjoying join US episode. We just want to take a quick break to tell you.

What are your superstitions? What were they back then? Are they set in same day well. I'll give you one. It's it's really stupid before game. I used to two sticks ago okay but at ter men have I've put to have over here and have one whole thing it with like a stress reliever I and so I would come in halftime. I do the same thing get a freshman. PUT HIM UP. There always ran out third always I would kill to get out third really so where we put them over there where you putting them. Are they like you sticking them somewhere. Put him up in top. We had a little shelf yeah okay at the end of the year. At the end of the year. There was a big pile of half sticks up there. Really that's a cute one. Give give us one more. I'm sorry give you one more superstition bill. I used to have the same way hit a game every day and here in Los Angeles because of the traffic there'd be a fifty car wreck. I wouldn't get all I wouldn't get which stay on that. Stay there. I don't say it's a superstition but eating habits habits were really different. When I started everyone used to have like a stake in a salad right right as I went on? I couldn't eat anything I wouldn't physically get sick and so I used to eat it like one o'clock the same thing every day. I'd have a Turkey Sandwich right and I would have water and a half half a scoop of L. Ice Cream. That was my pre game meal really really not a full scoop always a half scoop right the superstar again I could eat anything never gained weight but obviously as you get older for some reason <hes> you don't want to eat as much and with me. That was one of the things I was if I didn't do the same thing I took a nap every afternoon I would tape around the curtain peak alight coming through you really carry tape with me on the road from the trainer to take my windows up so I could take a nap and one time I'll never forget one of the funniest thing ever happened. We had a Friday night a game in Los Angeles and we had a first game of a double header in New York the next night that's one eight Aa so we flew there. We get there by the time we got. The hotel wasn't the traffic and New York like maybe a quarter seven and I get into hotel room. I take my windows up. I was really tired because I couldn't sleep after games. Anyway never slept on a plane so I've been up all night and finally went to sleep and all of a sudden I hear all this barking barking working barking so I come down to managing us as I said the dog barking next door and I was again always very polite and said. Is there any way to someone could just go check and this this gentleman said to me so why I'm sorry we're having the West Minster dog show all staying here at the hotel on my God. It wasn't fun with the worst part. We played the next day in Boston and afternoon game in Boston right. Oh Gosh Anyway. It wasn't fun traveling that way that was not wow so then yours. What are some superstitions or how about this? What are some habits that you do now are they? Still we'll have similar ones. You still have a I guess you not. You're not playing so you cannot that Turkey sandwich or the or the sticks will no. I have very several APP. It's okay I do I to me when I go to a game. Now I look at it from a different perspective. Okay I try gotta be. I try to be a scout particularly with younger players. Are they getting better. Does our coach need another player. I think one of the things that was important to me when when I was involved in and making decisions for a team I have a voice today and I do really express. My opinions are important to me if I'm going to be working with someone and one of the things that I've always felt that when you go the game um you watch these young kids and some of them coming out so young today they lose your competent very quickly but more importantly you know sometimes you see mistakes they make over and over and you point him out to our you know I do regard to Lawrence. Fine coups are President G._M.. Appoint amount to him and so to me to get to the point where you're communicating things that you see. Maybe we'll help this kid get better so you're gonNA need someone to work with him. You need to get better at this. You need to get better. Here's you need to be more alert here a stupid thing like the sideline. How many guys time do you see gas step Alabam? Normally it's the same person listen all the time to foot work even with us even with Veterans Okay and on the corner threes and not a lot room down there if it were cash to be impeccable another thing watching the ball you have to be alert. Your head has to be on swivel but I think thing that I most enjoyed when I was being involved with the team was going to say is particularly player you'd like to have maybe we get outta requiring for you and you'd be surprised how many times in communicating with other people in obviously general managers would one communicated within and now you have agents calling. I think you should call him about this boyer. You can't do that. That's not the way this works. You should communicate with the executive running his team but unfortunately landscape is really changed right. It sounds like it but it seems like you still keep adults old school like you still are doing it the way it used to be done. More and it's succeed era succeeding. We'll have so many different people training them arguments or have their own trainers training game with their own trainers and they seem to have confidence engineer name but you add a lot more people in sometime when you had a lot more people you have people in the staff. Maybe that's her specialty and do they feel slighted. I don't know that answered that question but I think with the point today to power that the players APP today and I think you know who was it said this talent you haven't leg unfortunately the talent and all leagues is what Makes Leagues go right right. What's his person saying when he said that I think it was more Cuban but it's it's always a talent driven and the players today or my goodness are getting more bouncy to have a lot more craftiness Kathleen astuter game they have they have some zigzag in it which makes them better? This game is a second largest game in the world today on soccer I do nothing. It's going to stop growing. I think it's going to become and they're playing basketball in India. Who all's at at one time when the Al Ming was playing in this league there were seven? I think it was one hundred young Chinese kids that were seven feet tall or more who were playing basketball. What was the impetus for that right? Yeah me right exactly they play basketball in the Philippines. They love basketball and they have professional leagues. Australia's producing some good players and certainly Europe is a fertile hurdle place for many N._B._A.. Players today so it's becoming a worldwide game the N._B._A.. Denigrate job in Africa because you know we need if you look at the players today long range e players. They come. There's so many big kids in Ukraine area with their huge and in Sao and South Africa today. These kids are really tall but they're the N._B._A.. Has Gotten Button so involved in some of the African players who played very successful in this league have gone about their way to try to contribute back to their countries. That's a good team and what's integrate the great thing I mean I that's opportunity in life is the most important and it's not always about athletics. Okay people telling people we have so many displace kids today and they might have completely different interests and it's great for me to see people get involved who are influential who can provide resources for these kids to have a chance to live. There dreamed very much like myself and tons of N._B._A.. Gay pointers tons of other athletes and all sports absolutely it's really important to pay it forward and give it back to your community to give other people the opportunity because a lot of it is opportunity. A lot of people can be very talented than have all the other characteristics but they don't get if they're not giving that opportunity. It's it's kind of yes. I noticed well as we have. You know we have so much money in a lot of few hands of those people would be a little bit more discipline. I think thinking where they usually give money. I'd like to give him again. I'm not preaching to people but to see these people who have enormous. Well get involved in youth today. Let's country and participate right absolutely yeah. It's probably the best feeling the world to do something. Give something to young kids. They never forget it. They never forget it absolutely and that's what makes the world go round right you if you if you were given that opportunity tune in have the ability. I always think it's you have the ability to help somebody. Why wouldn't you help somebody where you should right absolutely good one hundred percent as you get when you give right? That's who missed the other saying so. What's the day in the life now so I of course we know what the clippers and what you do? But what time do you wake up in the morning like what's your would you work out do exercise you. Must you still don't run like forrest gump anymore but maybe close you know. I try to work out when when I have the time but being here today that's one day else allied AMMO extractive pound plus get one of the things but no I tried to do that and and when I'm when I'm traveling ailing in some time it's not personal with not for me. You thought you find is difficult to keep doing those thing and I have my own gym and home I stretch I <hes> I <hes> lift weights on a treadmill. <hes> when I'm in town a lot I have a young lady comes in stretches me. I try to be disciplined and what to eat. I'm not much of despair used to like. I like wine very much but I've been cutting weight cut way back on that but the thing that probably I love to do most is read alive Lawrence from reading about leaders about giving stories of people people should go back and look at today's in the south when we had slavery <hes> people just study some the leaders back there. It's pretty remarkable what these people have done for cause and the players frankly most admired when I was playing the ones that would take a stand. Today's players have incredible platform right Oh with social media and everything nothing else now credible platform and I wish there were more that would because of the enormity of their popularity and the wealth today that's the best. He'll forget all their careers okay if you're good at something funding. You don't have to tell anyone you might have to tell anyone but the thing that will you know they're they're images employer. Their record will live forever but the greatest impact in the world they can make helping others absolutely is there is one book that you recommend to people read that you have. Oh my gosh so many I read probably three books a week. Wow Okay we reading right now where the three books got to reading a book on Malcolm X. was fascinating. <hes> just got through reading a book on George Washington and during the during the war in one thousand seen what seventy nine fifty nine times plot to kill him by his own soldiers. I just got through watching a documentary on Martin Luther King. It was pretty stirring. I read things that sometimes when I travel might read it risked mystery book but I try to re things that are meaningful may leaders why they were great leaders and some of them have commonalities and they're different and you know people we see players okay that are out there jumping around a look at this leadership ability trust me. There's many more quiet ones that are better leaders and tough reminded. Those guys are constantly calling tension. Absolutely I actually agree with what you say. If you're good people will notice you don't have to tell everyone goes yeah but <hes> that's not really the society we live in right where people feel they will say society is changing all the time okay. It's changing all time trying but I think there's lessons learned regardless of what area you have gone up your life. I listen. I told you before I've seen time there's no phones in how no T._v.. And a house no air conditioning and I see all the amenities of people have today with all smart people in the world. I wonder if artificial intelligence it's not going to run. This world and scary is scary and that's that's the trajectory S. what's happening. That's the wave of what's going honest gets to be that way more and more what Albert Einstein say years ago he's concerned about artificial intelligence years ago right pretty amazing isn't that isn't that kind of it's kind of scary. We how we doing okay. We got about five more minutes okay. I'll I wanted to respect your time okay so when I was Albert Einstein Yes oh yeah I also saw that your big fan of Malcolm glad well yes. I like him to another fellow Canadian by the way I know that he's he's different. He's very different. The blink blink in particular was really good because I'm Kinda blinked person seem like the name that can make quick decisions. Are they always right no but they are more nearly right because I trust my own personal judgment but again the more you read the more you study people the more you experiences is an exposure. You've had to people all shapes. All kinds Paul nationalities. You can learn from a lot of people in the one thing that I know is that I have learned more. You're from people who have been no just the average person and I've learned from people who are supposed to be leaders and some people are leaders by definition only absolutely true. What would you say then considering that? You're considered to be a leader in an icon. What would you say you are best and most proud accomplishment is of everything? It doesn't have to be profession. It could be anything I think the balance I have in my life with myself because you're not careful. You'll get overwhelmed with winners player rarely did you did. I get criticized. It was hard to criticize me because I played the game at a level that during my period of time that was really I you know I was a great late game player but I'm not sure I think one thing is. I'm pretty balanced. I don't like publicity at all. A lot of people would say that's not true. I get embarrassed by it and it gets to the point. Sometimes you just all appraise you get for certain things people have contributed more to me in a lot of things have been that I've been involved with and I ended up getting the credit I written letters of apology. People have worked for the fact that I get so much credit and they don't get enough. Wow that's very unusual to feel that any. Where do you think that comes from? Let me ask from your childhood because people don't want you to be honest. That's always there's a lot of times. I'd really like to be an always thought. I'd like to write it. The final chapter in my life okay wouldn't do it because I'm too honest to write things that I see that I just wish people would do a little more more differently. Respect the people that you work with okay respect them. There's some people that I don't care for but I don't in him period I would never I don't hate people period <hes> the way they treat people disrespect sometime you see <hes> people who work in this league. Everyone wants to win. I hope everyone went. I hope everyone with but this is so hard to win in this league getting more difficult because of the rules <hes> the way to game has changed changed the way it's officiate. It is just a a cycle. Sometimes we go through <hes> but I just I love people. I really do and I wish enormously wealthy because that will give it away every penny well. I think that you should be writing. A book called Life Lessons with job by Jerry West because I think like we said why your white you took from basketball can be you can you can use that and transcends any any industry personally or an professionally and I think what I got from this is that you are. You're really good at like picking up on like Imo you're very emotional emotional intelligence picking up on nuance of how to deal with people and you're very empathetic and I think that's probably from what I got. This is my opinion. That's probably what makes you so good and what you do. We'll again praises you get I had someone to send me a seal with this ball with the ball on it snows okay and I had really been getting a lot of criticism awesome for a couple of things one trade in particular <hes> that people were fans were upset writers and they felt like it was ahead of vindictive modus person I coached team had great respect for him but anyway make long story short. This person sent me this with the ball wants no still have it on bathroom counter you too. They said life is about balance that starts thinking life is about balance and I said to myself oh my gosh all the incredible things that have been set about me some way to praiseworthy and now I'm getting this uncomfortable <hes> version that really was. I felt bad about trading person. We traded him. I didn't trade him. We traded him and I realize I said Oh. My Gosh life is really about balance. If people say great things about vow to all the time it's not real in particularly people in the press for people have social venue. It's not always true well. People always happens then people tend to believe their own hype right because the more coupon craze you you get you get like an unrealistic sense of self right. That's what happens so do you not so you do not believe not not do not believe the hype but you try to stay grounded as if something that you do do even as a ritual to Kinda keep you stay humble and grounded besides the deal that you look at every day. I guess that could be what it is. It reminds you every day to stay balanced while remember a every day. I'm just like everyone else. Ah Okay I had a head of life. That was a fairy tale life in terms of my basketball life as I say those days are coming to an end and I will look back and say thank God I've met incredible people my life and also look back and I will say there's some people in my life that I was just to see by and they don't balance silence. Everything has been like oh my gosh. How did someone come from a place at five hundred and have met the people in my life have experienced things in my life? There's very few that can say that and no one gave me anything along the way earn everything that I've received hard work hard work or work in the skill and yeah and the combination go combination nation of skill. You don't have hard work. You're not going to do anything okay right exactly tease everybody exactly so I guess basically I don't WanNa keep you any longer than I have to so <hes> so what is that one would to describe you. Give me your your strongest trait and your weakest trait and then you're free your free agent my weakest trait so forth worth southward ever felt that was worthy of anything again attribute that to how I grew up a strongest rate is that I I love to give and I really liked people who would be a two to answer that to enters. I'll say I really like you a lot. Thank you very much for coming on this podcast. It was an honor. I know you don't want to be praised. She gets you get uncomfortable so I'll say I really liked having you. You're really cool guy and maybe we can do this against some time if it works out world thank you very much to appreciate. Thank you very much Jerry West guys you can find him basically anywhere online.

The Sedano Show [Hr 1]

"All right. I've had it. This is the last time I played it today, of course, because it's a ml even after I thought you had it because when I showed you on Twitter. Which we can't discuss now that is just well, thanks, you sure we can't discuss. I'm pretty sure we can't. All right. I'll let you guide us there Mason Ireland brand candidates skis in for John and George Sodano is here getting ready for his show. We should just go to the to the igniter. You wanna go to the state. We should just go straight to it. Yeah. You ready? No, no, no, not now. We should not have the break again at this point. Yeah, I don't know why we break. Yeah, let's just get one long just because we broke away late on the last one. Yeah. Dodgers started line boss over there. Looking at you dodger starting lineup is offered a night. They're facing Freeland really good lefty. Chris Taylor leadoff, Justin Turner bat and second Machado, David freeze, clean up Matt camp, Brian dosier key care nana's Austin Barnes. There's your splits for you a hundred percent right handers except for Clayton Kershaw. Right. And that's what fan graft said. You should do it. It. It's ever let us astray. Yeah. No, they start lefty. We're gonna start. All righty. Yeah, that's the way that's the way they roll over there in that front office. And what do you think of that? I listen. I've about it exploit every single edge you have. So we talked about yesterday. How Arab said in the postseason it's different. He'd like for them to be more consistent with their guys. Palm. So here's the in the regular season. I love it and ultimately baseball game of math. Okay. Inquiry ability, right at its core. That's is Athen probability the last time I actually played fantasy baseball. Okay. And daily where it's super crazy and you have to play guys every day. I would change my lineup every day and I would reflect based on matchups and that's all they're doing. Is that the Corbo I know analytics is a word that freaks people out and just, you know, I, it scares them for whatever reason, but they're just using information to Crete match. I like to call it knowing stuff. Yeah, it's just knowing. It was their fault for not giving us a catchier name when they first introduced lyrics that that fray sounds. Gary. Down nerdy. We just hired Steve over there. He's our director of knowing stuff. Yeah, yes. And stuff like Lee Jenkins is the during Bank, it's what is that? I'm so jealous of Li even know what it is, but I say Cellis jelly, fantastic writer. Li Li like my wife and I joke that Lee is and and his family's like sort of the idealized version of hours. Yeah, because they and I both went Vanderbilt, right. He is a sports writer of just vastly. I mean, he's arguably the greatest storyteller there is. Yeah. Not just in sports. I'm talking about in general. I think when it's all said and done, we'll be like the sports writer of this generation him in what's the gentlemen from Mississippi that that works SPN Paul fine right now Thomson, everybody from the south, right, right Thomson's, probably one but lease right there with. Like he's got like. Yeah, I don't know what his is a total of. She's also a freelancer and like is more successful than my wife who's also funny that's graduate around the same Jenkins Jenkins light. Poor poor man's Li like land Stevenson, the versatility of land Stevenson makes him like a destitute persons LeBron. Destitute came as wouldn't you want to take a job with a professional team that's a made up JAL? Wouldn't you want Harvey because he's paid more than what he was making. I was always go back to writing the one way I'd become a clippers fan. Hired me to John all in if that happened. I don't know exactly what lease job is going to be. I don't think vivid nation research that what it is he's doing interviews going to interview people, their Scouting's going to interview the players to try to really understand how they tick. He's going to apply journalistic failures. But what this job is now in their heads is probably gonna look, very different in six. I think it was. I think Steve bomber read a goodly Jenkins article and said, I, I need this. I need to work is something to be said for that guy's really smart and good at what he lets smart people hire him and we'll figure out what to do with them later. I'm surprised that more professional teams don't take that approach because the one thing you don't have a cap on is your front office and you could spend and you should spend as much as humanly possible on it, whether that scouting whether that's information, whether it's just he's really smart, will figure out a way to implement him. The dodgers have Seventy-three GM's and it's why. Bombers were thirty six million dollars, right? Like him and gates in those guys created this thirty six. Well, I saw him on real time with Bill asthma. By the way, he's what you see is what you get. He allowed and he crazy. Plenty and funny thirty Bill. You meant billion. Thirty billion. He just eats. It's one of these deals where Lakers fans who blow off the clippers shouldn't because he, no, I'm going readily wealthy. Will he's going to build an arena in Inglewood that I don't consider them blown up. I don't understand how things gonna make seeing nichole. Emmy. It's not that arenas. Not gonna make money, he's building for fun because he wants his own building for his team can spend unlimited amounts of money and like, yeah, the clippers have that approach. We should have who I don't know who the best trainers. We should get that the best of that the Lakers are starting to get back into that mode. Something that kind of went away for, I think that you should spend whatever amount of money. It takes hire a bunch of specialists distance to the president's like those offensive, video coordinator, all that, whatever you could create makeup anything as long as that guy's smart and can help that girl. Here's here's the truth. I mean, you know this George, the the Lakers were not on the cutting edge of annal of no, and they've beefed up recently. I mean, Houston, Golden State San Antonio Boston. They're the guys that installed their own sport view cameras before everybody says, let's give Lou all dang that kind of money, right? Like that doesn't exist in any formula. What about the what. About the question that shows you should show up at Timofey Mazda Rx, stepping. Equation, but aren't you super jealous you would? I would want a job, give me a made up job with the professional franchise where I can just hang out and do that. What they're saying. Gopi. Smart. Yeah, and just be what I'm good at in his case, it's really be really smart. Man. I'd take that heartbe. We need to learn tape. Balmer. We're available. Wait a minute. We know what do so hard will kick. I would have a hard time Mace and he and if you can't you your salary right now instead we want you to be our marketing five-year deal. We just you just told me glow off the twenty Twenty-eight Olympics right now. Host profit mindframe now. Yeah, Mace told me that double your salary come on Steve. Yeah. Do Trudy. I would probably do it would be sell out. Everybody's got a price Hajer I would would be it would be made Trudell said it would be Ireland, Ireland and cabinets. That's what it would be. If I got the Lee Jenkins deal, that's a sell out. Yeah, look Natura Delle thumbs up. I would take that deal heartbeat. I would want that. As a matter of fact, I'm jealous that I didn't go up two bomber and ask him for that deal before lead. It should've Trudell hukum. You haven't used your interviewing someone insured. Before we get to the start talking and then we're going to play the stage. Do this job for the Lakers. Why haven't you? Yeah. What's your favorite part of the show? Is that the stager. No, the stage. I, I'm not sure you're talking about. You'll know he doesn't know the radio lingo. Oh, oh, it says is, is Otis is little. Yeah. Yeah, we're in Georgia. No. I mean, the best part is usually when I walk in. Of course, I haven't seen a long time. I know you doing ready for media. I'm very ready to start months of speculating about LeBron we get to watch. That's good weird, right? Yeah, I'll be at the Rams Vikings. We you wanna come. Find me in the boys will be their first NFL game from twins Mace. Nice. By the way we're guy sitting I, I've yet to get tickets, but actually, George said the best bought, oh yes, wearing Viking. Is it in the sun. You're a night game. Yes. Right. Twenty nine. So every good one? Yeah. Sit over bias section six Vikings fans for sit with all these other sons. Yeah. I mean, well, the boys like both. I'm gonna let them choose as they get aloof. What the the skull mean? It's it's like an old Swedish it. It basically means channel. Let's go Chiro boats and stuff right to do with rowing boats. It's like a, it's like the rallying cry for the violence of you know of, let's pass. Yeah, exactly. That's what it is. So you're excited. You're like your your team's legitimately good, the Rams legitimate good. This is the best match of football. This is showdown right now. I hope this is the championship game. This is a preview of that. Should make a bet on the game. Oh yeah, we got to the play. No right now. Loser shaves their head neuro Lou. If you lost, there's no chits shapes their hat. Just know shaving just before the legacies, I, I will say that I think the Rams are a little bit better right now. Do. But the Rams get between the Vikings, the Packers, the saints, the chiefs, they got them all every every potential matchup of Super Bowl or NFC. How cool is saying we should go to Mexico City, Kansas, Kansas City, and dams and Mexico City can show you around you ever been to Mexico City? No, never been Dr. Patrick Mahomes can throw football l. Tutut wolf. That's right. Like six by the way he's so he was written fantasy. They have ESPN has is number one for this week. Now I of course I get it six three hundred forty yards. Last week we down the hallway throw eighty league with Aaron Rodgers. Last week I played the homes and I think I'm doing in this week. You're over added last week. Yeah, you should write Mahomes and Aaron Raj because I got Mahomes a little bit home late. Yeah, because he was like usually the eleventh or twelve or some Ireland and fantasy this week. He played drew Brees over Mahomes. I mean, same thing going into that. That's a smart play, right? You think against Cleveland at home New Orleans. I mean, the thing was you knew it was gonna be shootout though because neither Pittsburgh or the chiefs of defense. True. So that's and that's why he's good because the Rogers actually has a decent defence Packers and he hasn't had to do quite as much actually. I think Sunday will be really fun. I mentioned to see, I've never watched a San Diego Chargers game before, so this'll be have ever seen them. I was going to say it's going to be a shootout with the defenses or what. Due by the way, do expect us to be both offenses. Really good. The Rams defense is also really good. Yeah, the chargers defense would be better if they had Bosa, which we probably won't know, is it going to be? Don't even know what the spread. Here's what the over under to because it's not gonna be Kansas City Pittsburgh though, because both teams have better defense the way this is setting up. Okay. Guess Ramzan. I'd say Rams minus six and a half. Now. I'll say guess what? That's what my say, five and a half. I'll say seven, seven. The correct line is, oh, wow, you're on Rams minus seven. Wow. That's under forty eight and a half. Really loves the ram. They're currently the odds on favourite five, five to one I believe it is. I think if you were just nationally get an idea of who the Super Bowl favorite is, I think honestly, right now they're sentiment is ranked because you just watching as we all do prisoner of the moment, the NFL, but you watch the patriots, get dinged up. The eagles don't look like the eagles wenches coming back back his for his not look. Great, Kansas City's defense is not look good. Yeah, or the Vikings looked good, not great. So yet they I mean their opponents of nothing good. But they have done, what do? Yeah. Yeah, they're being by thirty. I mean in the case of the cardinals are terrible, but only allowed them past the fifty yard line. If the Rams wanted to win that game sixty five, nothing they could've. Yeah, absolutely. Over didn't get over midfield until the last few minutes of the game. Johnson just looked like a disaster. Actually, he sits heated. They wouldn't even throwing the ball, which was the one thing this week is perfect because the like a good, but not elite charters team. Yeah, ahead of what start, you know, then you get the stretch where you see Minnesota and the saints and the, you know in the Packers. So it's really nice Bill and you get them sands Bosa most likely, which is huge because he's, I mean he had the chance to be right up there in the defensive player of the year. Do you want to find the igniter for you? Yeah. I mean, we go over there. We've really, there's nobody there. Oh, there's an igniter over here. Oh, yeah. Mazen is so strange to be in here when you're here in Ireland is not at its strange. Now, what what happened? I've I've no control over any of this. Okay. So every day at this time are approximately this time we play thing called the stager. Staging, Georgia's show the half hour. He's been here wasn't enough right lane into you who George is and why he's. Yeah, this is this is the stager and then afterwards I don't talk right George takes over to go home. So ladies and gentlemen goes to dance office for half hour. Don't forget tomorrow. The guy that got the tattoo the Mason in Ireland tattoo cruel and Flora's hosts faster is there isn't there? Did Keyshawn Johnson John's? Oh, Morales is always rally soldier. He's always chasing are bits, is he? Yeah, wait is that's not a real thing. Ours is a real. Keyshawn tattoo beforehand though, come on. Keyshawn Johnson tattooed on me. Let me tell you Pinera. I have walked Nara sandwiches forever. Have walked out of this building with him, and there was a time where random dudes just wait for him to walk out autographs Keyshawn Johnson. That's why you don't think there could be someone with a tattoo tattoo. No, Brian, I can't remember if they still fasttrack from your podcasts or from Thomson Trudell got up from one of trash. One of the two from. The one that was really good. You stole fasttrack Hawes all the sudden you and Michael Thompson doing, I forget what you call up. What. Fasttrack is derivative of Mike tub. How is that shit because you always that show. The morning shows version called the morning shows version of lane was actually excellent. The the morning version of very funny fast-lane funny thing about it was though that they pretended like they were. It was the first show in radio history than it ever top stuff. Radio. Ever with that. You are one of the first and best for suck. Radio shows that they're, they've been around for that long. Lee Hamilton was the original volleyball line is open, big, big time. Sports radio personnel? Yes. And Jim Rome on the high speed sports wire. It was Lee right? Boom, Costa Mesa, studio city. Sean, you're here from you. Show me your you remember that show me your lightning bolts. I remember coming to southern California all the time in hearing him say that it was hilarious. Now they call the high speed sports wire, your phone net. Your phone? The wire ever rip out wire copy. I did watch it year. That's whole different. I actually go back to when I was working a minor league baseball ticker all I remember the core ticker that would come through all the updated out of town score, which is basically what you have the. They call the bottom line on ESPN with actual paper exact. Yeah. Out when the guys reading off the telegraph doing the play by play and they hit the the wood on the bat, like I wasn't there for that. Did do that into lead Ohio footage of Steve? Ronald Reagan did that. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I do. Yeah, no, I, that was pre I think it's impressive enough when people call games off TV. I've seen that in soccer. Telegraph. Yeah, that's real. Oh, no. We've talked enough ready. Let's go ladies and gentlemen. The stager they go Mace. Maces is still here. I were to breaks behind. So just we'll go to break your in two minutes Mace. You still here. Don't leave your glasses. He go play like a stager. I don't believe it was vanity play. That was more of just, hey, let's let's not go to break. Yeah, let's go to break. So this chair is so hot by may center. I enjoyed your EMMY performance. Congratulations. Yes, yeah, it is. It's fantastic. Brian seed. Actually, not that warm. You're saying Mason's is very. Hi, it's like cranked up with this is all about. I do wanna talk about the Rams here because I think what happened yesterday Trudell and we're gonna break your less than a minute, but I'm telling you what happened yesterday was eye opening to me as far as what the future holds for the Rams and I'll tell you why. Just a second, I sit down shut you down the house. Today's guest co host, Brian horse is gonna stop by at six o'clock. We've got a lot of stuff to get into your. Let's start with the Rams because that was kind of the conversation. We were having amazed before they left. I mean the best thing in the NFL. Yeah, they are the best team in the NFL peak on are they are Pete Carroll and the Seahawks being in real trouble. And if you watched that game, there's no way you can look at them and say, they're not. And yes, I get don't. Baldwin is hurt and Russell. Wilson looks different because of that. But the Rams division stinks Trudeau. It's things and it makes think as much if not. Close to what the AFC east is with the New England, Patriots. And here's the thing. I think this is great for the Rams for a number of reasons. Number one, they'll have the division, I think on lock for a long time or at least a good number of years because I don't see a path for any of these teams to get better anytime soon. They way too many holes here. There's nothing obvious right now. I mean Garoppolo looks good, but it still seems like it's gonna take a bit on five hundred team. Maybe there's a disaster and Seattle now look, you did like Seattle more than me before. That's one of our, I did defense defense. I didn't think they'd be a playoff team though. I didn't have them in the playoffs. I thought they were about eight, nine win team. Yeah, but here's this point is they're not that good look at how much if you're Rams fan, just look at the patriots run here. Now, I'm not saying that the NFC west is going to be down for fifteen years, and I'm also not saying that Jared Goff is Tom Brady, but what I'm saying is this the. Treats l. having a week division helps them because to me, football is a battle of a trillion and they get to save their bullets basically because the division stinks. So they don't have to use those bullets until they face equality opponent occasional face a quality opponent or in the regular season, somebody in the NFC, whatever, or the Pittsburgh Steelers or whatever, but come playoff time. You really haven't seen everything the patriots are capable of yet. Their schedule is much weaker than a lot of the other teams. That's a very interesting argument. I'm thinking about it. I'm trying to think of another sport, but I'll just use college football for example. So if you're Alabama, are you better at the end of the season if you have played against the other teams in the SEC stink, which of course we know is not a thing, or is it the opposite in out in the patriots is the flip side, their divisions stunk for years, they win, they get to the playoffs. But since there's no playoff other than the fourteen playoff in college football, it almost seems like. It's helped Alabama to it's helped. It's helped them to play against good competition in the SEC still manage to win, right? But square that the college game to me is different. I think you're all I while you're not doing it professionals. So there's that professionals need time off. The game is more brutal. You batter yourself more in the NFL than you wouldn't college. I think all of that stuff is different. Your body's completely different when you're dealing with eighteen nineteen twenty year old kids, the recovery time is different. All that stuff matters. So if you're not taking the, the beatings that you're taking, if you're division was tough in the NFL, it only helps you later down the road. Plus you also since you're playing sixteen games, you're also you're going to get your individual games, but then you're playing much more outside of your conference as you might end the college. So so in that sense, I think you're right. And so if the Rams then they get to go in and potentially eat and feast on these teams in their division and maybe play a couple more backups, you know, maybe save some snaps for different guys and just just tally wins, right? Because if you're telling those winds in than you can afford to go on the road in lose the game when you have to go at the patriots when you have the AFC east or whatever show as long as this division stinks in the NFC west for the Rams, I think that you're gonna have those remaining bullets that New England tends to have because of playing in the AFC east and the NFC is more difficult than the AFC. So what happens is come playoff time. Your New England has played games in the first round. Whenever they, let's say, they don't have a bye man. They've played some weak teams in that first round game. If they've ever even been the third seed and not had a first round. Bye they have a better shot. Whereas in new in the NFC ban that first round is crazy. You're playing legit, tough teams. All those teams can be super woke. We saw we saw that hurt the Rams last year, right? And then you had same thing, then Minnesota, they get a really good win. Tough win the last second against a excellent New Orleans Saints team, and then they have to go at Philly. I, it's just a, it's a, it's a real meat grinder to try to make it through that and that's after. So that's that's the flip side to this argument for the patriots. The AFC is just been down the last couple of years, whereas in the NFC now that's the one thing for the Ran's even if you win your division and you know, and even if you secure a by, you're going to have to play a really good team most likely in that first round. The other team, basically the best way to describe it. Give me the path of least resistance and the Rams looks like looked like they're going to have the path of least resistance at least for a while to get to the playoffs. Yes, but but being in a tough conference, then you know, it's it's still probably tougher to get to the Super Bowl. It's going to be easier for them because of the division as opposed to the NFC north or the NFC south, which is unbelievable. The Viking, the Packers were both going in the bears now look like they're pretty good all that stuff and look, I again, I none of it is a given, but it gives them much better odds, at least in my opinion. I'm curious to see what people think though, like do you want the past the path of least resistance? You should be happy with this as far as I'm concerned. Seven. Seven, seven, ten ESPN eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six just things I notice in yesterday's game. And it's funny because Kirk Morrison was in here yesterday and we were talking about this game for like maybe two minutes Trudeau because it just popped on when we were on the air. And he said yesterday, Russell Wilson is good quarterback, but you can defend Russell Wilson. You keep him in the pocket, and he's a different passer, and I was like, yeah, I totally can see that. And yesterday I got home and I'm watching that game and basically everything Kirk was saying happen and man, that's the type of thing you see. And you say to yourself the Seattle Seahawks are in a. Very precarious situation because they've paid Russell Wilson like an elite quarterback, and there is part of his game that's flawed inside the pocket. This is not me saying gas bag, radio host. This is Kirk Morrison, eight-year line com. Augusta, I'm totally that. But that's not necessarily just my opinion here. That is the opinion of a professional linebacker who played eight seasons in the national, but and I agree with that. But I don't know if that narrative was out even last year, right? He was still somewhat the golden boy. The golden child is that what is not that the defense called him, but the fence was still somewhat intact last year. I'm just saying though that the the perception about Wilson was more that he was this the next up and coming great quarterback. It wasn't that he had this glaring weakness and now that Seattle as a whole doesn't look as good. We're starting to the magnifying glass because he is now the one getting paid. Yes, he gets more of these scrutiny in its in when you actually look at it like that. You're right. He's not going be a guy, and I don't know if Jared Goff would be that guy either. If. You had to bail the Rams out more. I don't know if he can live up to that standard, but he's certainly have to start. Jared Goff is a better pocket passer than Russell Wilson Bagger. I don't even think that's debatable if you watch the two here, here's what I what I mean. What does he have a different? We like he has different weakness right that we, he doesn't. He can't run in make the same type of place outside of the pocket is Russell Wilson. So that would theoretically be the the opposite scouting report that you would have in Russell Wilson for God, it would be more, hey, chase him out of the pocket, creates a pressure on him. And then we don't know if you can make the same type of plays downfield and that's the, that's the thing. So if Wilson is really good to summarize if Wilson is really good outside of the pocket, Goth is pretty good inside the pocket. We don't know the type of degree you can make plays Russell the more accomplished quarterback. I'm just talking about this one specific skill set which is playing within the pocket. And again, Kirk sitting there telling me yesterday, watch for this and this is exactly how it all played out yesterday, but you're right the minute they, they paid Russell Wilson that changed everything for them because all of a sudden they're window close. You have to start over again and I'll tell you this. It shows by the way that we should give a lot of credit to less need. Because less need, then they're paying Jared Goff nothing. He was the first overall pick in the draft. So he's not Russell Wilson who was making seven hundred grand for three or four years. Yeah, he's making decent Coyne. He's not making the crazy coin, but he's making decent enough point where it is a factor, at least in the salary cap. And yet they still been able to maneuver the roster and the salary cap to the point where they've added all these weapons both on offense and defense for him for the team to be successful in Sean McVay, Deby's accessible. So less the deserves a belief, ton of credit for making this thing work. The longer that we've gotten away from Jeff Fisher. The more credit lessening has gotten in my mind. If anybody's mind in, it's almost it's easy now to just say, oh, if needed been making more these decisions himself than maybe the Rams would have been better. But clearly Fisher had some power, and he was influencing the type of players that they were bringing in because the second that he left, we've seen things going. Whole different direction. McVay gets a lot of credit for that, but sodas less need show. What do you think the window here is for the Rams if you had to guess because Seattle has its own holes Arizona's disasters, you pointed out and you look, San Francisco might be the team that can ascend, but their defense is in great. Yeah, there. I mean, they're, I think San Francisco's pretty good. Like they give Minnesota game in the home opener in Minnesota. That was when they look decent in week two. But yeah, they're nowhere near what the Rams are in this show. The Ramsey does how long in this division? Well, another four years. So yeah, I think I think three or four years is a good one because that's how much they locked up. Their main guys for Goff is gonna make. So I think it's seven point six million this year, eight point nine next year. That's five percent or let or less of the right. And so that's the big thing. So even though you said it's not it's not Russell Wilson? Seven hundred twenty. It's still quarterback. It's a bargain, yes agreement for this. That's as good as he is. So you can utilize that money elsewhere. So I think that that's in football, it's dangerous with the exception of the patriots in this all time. Coach quarterback combo, right? It's it's dangerous for me to look more outside of that, but that's a nice window in the NFL. That's a nice window thinking, hey, you're the best team in the division on talent. You're going to get better because some of these players are young and you have GM now that shown that he can bring in the type of players like Peter's like, sue is all of a sudden the new stadium's gonna come. That could be a whole nother attraction, so it's the team's only gonna get more popular than it is in LA where it still kind of a blip and it's starting to get bigger. So I think you're, I think you're right to portray this as a not just a team for this year, but it's got a chance to to continue to be a real presence. They are absolutely building something that's going to be good for a long time. And by the way is a massive part of that, right? He's he's the one thing that's the constant, I think for just the combination of him in Snead. Kazlo Trudeau you've seen this man, you've worked for organizations. You've been around this for longtime the best organizations in sports. They're aligned from the owner. All the way down to the assistant coaches, man, they are all on the same page, and the ram seemed to be that now, whereas with Jeff Fisher look, it was kind of his thing, right? It was his baby. And at the end of the day they had to realize we have to kinda separate from him because if not, we're going to be stuck in mediocrity or worse for a lot longer because he just felt like he was mailing it in. And that's where the Rams are. Now they've created in a very short amount of time something that you can really get behind as saying this. It just made me think a USC and the flip side. Yeah. Well, that's what we're going to get through next. There's bad news for USC. We'll tell you what that is in just a second. All right. So small business owners got something to tell you. You want to clear and straightforward communication. I well clear and straight for communication is crucial. So an CNC says, one thing that actually means another -idn't get really frustrating, for example, t. says they fast internet for what they really know what they really mean is the basic internet was slow starting speed.

"Feels a little weird whoop. Whoop with a. Away 'em song underneath it. But what we're gonna do what you're gonna do. We did. Yes. Well, wait, what LA one ask me? Then only didn't they lost to the bucks. I'll talk about the clippers. Oh why? Transition. My brain. We care about the clippers. Sure. Sure little bit. I mean, we don't care care if they're winning. We're gonna pay a little bit more real estate value up. Co-chair a their coach. That's exactly kind of put a an end on that whole thing. I really well. We'll see left the door cracked cracked barely cracked barely crass. Lakers. They played last night. They lost last night. That's what they do of late there. Thirty one and forty brook Lopez had a big game Casey p a big game for the Lakers. But all right. I mean, we're just getting to the end of the line. The next big thing for the Lakers is what are they going to do with their coach the next big thing with the Lakers is when are they gonna fire Luke Walton if they're gonna fire Luke Walton, and we've talked a lot about it yesterday is what are they gonna do? If in fact, they make a move from Luke and whether or not Doc Rivers was going to be a part of their future while Dr kind of put an end to that yesterday here. He is well job and the Lakers coach number one. And I'm going nowhere. I can tell you that straight up front. I'm going to be here until Steve says get out. All right. So that's doc saying I'm not going to be the Laker coach. He went on to say later, you know, magic. And I are friends we'll always be friends, but we had an extension earlier this summer that we agreed to that. We have a verbal agreement for a contract extension. Now, maybe there's a little bit of wiggle room that it's a verbal agreement and not a written one. But that sounded fairly definitive that Doc Rivers is not going to be the Laker coach. Well until Steve decides he wants to do something different. Now remember yesterday, I talked about all the different reasons why someone may want to leave what seems to be a good situation. And that is a could be because behind closed doors is not as good as you think it is. If you believe that Steve bomber isn't a kind of person science and extension trade you then you weren't paying attention to Blake Griffin. If you believe that Doc Rivers, perhaps doesn't fill a little bit of certain kind of way to Jay came in and took over a job of his I don't know what to tell you. So just because things looks rosy on the outside doesn't need the one hundred percent Rosie on the inside with that being said if the man says, he's staying I'm say, he's staying, but that caveat that until St. says goodbye, fizz is a lot. Steve says goodbye, I'm not going anywhere. All of those sort of things is coach speak s they have a coach right now. Right. If you say, you know, I'm not talking about that the Esco heavy. If you say, well, I don't have any plans on leaving. That's was just go. No matter what you say. People are going to say. So you say they have a coach I'm happy here. I don't I'm not going anywhere. But yet and still Steve bomber myself had a conversation earlier this year, and he gave me an opt out. Right. What does that? What does that mean? I can opt out of the summer. You opting. Did you mean to say you're opting in? I don't understand. Why did you give us that information about the summer being able to opt out? Well, my read it was that he said to him look if you want to go, you can go and Texan, I don't I'm not looking going. That's why what you were saying those e about maybe things on the outside or different than they are on the inside. But this I at least feels to me like an honest assessment from one of the people that is inside that I'm content. I'm happy here. And we talked about this yesterday to the idea of winning a championship with the clippers or at least putting them in a position when a championship. We're getting close to champ. Chip for the clippers that something that's never happened before. And maybe you know, when you hear him say, my job is not done when dockside something like that. You wonder if my job was not to use this to get closer to the next spot. A wanna take this team this organization place that they've never gone before? And we're not there yet. You do understand coaches changed a mind key is change underwear. Them. Is not a real one. You know, coach Shazia mine, and they they'll tell you stand up. They'll look you square in the face in just lie there just who lied to you, the ally, you buy it hook line, and sinker. And then out into the day. They'll say, well, you know, just was in my heart. You know, my wife, and my kids we just made this decision as a family. There's probably best to move on. And they have a different challenge in life in regular. Okay. But I thought she was going to say, well, yeah. Thought about it circus's changed and the word. Verbal is the scary word if you're a clipper fan verbal those. If you're a Laker fan, the word verbal gives you a little bit of, you know, slim hope that you know, we can say we're going to do something into Kice point. You know, saying I'm going to do something and doing something or not always the same thing. I need to see the ink. Right, right. I need to see it as you just telling me that's not gonna do agreement you in a playoff run. I get it. You're not gonna. Don't want to upset the apple cart. Is that what they call it or something like that overturned for turn overturn? I thought it was upset the apple core that one. Fillings can make no you don't wanna upset the apple cart. You don't want. That's by some tools for the cabinet. Whatever you say the cabinet the cabinet. Yeah. When some thought on the drive home. I think that is a thing. I really. People. Okay. You didn't you also did no play like a cowboy? I mean can't play dead cowboy movie. You love that. Right. I like it more than the coaches change their mind more than kids change their underwear. Socks say, you know, say a lot of different ways. But, but I think when you look at where he is he could always change his mind in the clipper fans, they don't wanna hear that. But it's the truth is in the middle of a playoff. Fra doesn't want the players to start thinking about doc. And here you don't wanna start doing. There's also this in that is doc is a coach and. He's kind of coached at likes to coach. He also likes to move. He does. But this is remember he's on ease of was he moved wants to get far from Orlando, but he moved from Boston to to to the clippers. But if you remember his house was the Orlando. See for Memphis. You remember his stop in Orlando? He's not Larry Brown doesn't move every two years. Remember, his stock flirt. And then you remember his stop here in the clippers and the one of the things that's been consistent in terms of looking at how he does things these past nineteen seasons. His that he thrives without a superstar that he actually knows how to coach up young players. I'm not gonna say that's what he prefers. But he's really good at it. He's done now for three different franchises. So you have a squad right now with the clippers. That's young point. Gotta just turned twenty one the rookie like this the young squad that he's not made a playoff team. He loves this coming to the Lakers. You gotta LeBron James who's not a spring chicken he pregnant trade for another superstar. And then you pregnancy around them with veterans. That's a totally different coaching different jobs in the then what he's doing right now the same thing. He didn't Boston. Reality cages. I just don't know which he prefers. I'm sure he likes to winning that came with having those guys you wanna chip with that. But he's also really good at what he's doing right now. Just remember what I told. He's a flirt, you know, what he likes to dangle his name Orlando go back there Landau. I don't know if I wanna stay, you know, just all coaches, do you you said some I hadn't considered before. Yes. More in the idea of I'm just going to squash this because we're getting ready to go into the place. I don't need any of this. We saw what happened with the Lakers when there was knows surrounding their organization when the Anthony Davis deal with the young core and it basically nuked their season. They just they came unglued from that point. They've never been the same since then. And you wonder if doc saw something like that? Or just instinctively knows I'm not doing that. I'm just going to shut it down. I'm not throwing remind stank. But in the back of his mind, he's he's knows that. I'm just getting rid of this for now. And we get to the summer. We're gonna talk about it again fr from my experiments my experience. And in professional sports when you get to the end of the season and coach's name stored or they got mutual interest in area TC nine times out of ten that coach leaves and goes to another team you start hearing that think about this. As we go to break, you think about in the break, all the coaches names you start hearing. Oh, he may come back to coach. I think he's thinking about it. And then as a press conference two days later. Of the Laker deal for Anthony Davis or what they were trying to get done for Anthony Davis. Kobe Bryant weighed in on what he thinks they should do in that sense. That's coming up next. I don't have a run down. So I don't know. What's happened? I need to do. I got two people talking to me at the same time. I don't know Keyshawn. Johnson is today the first day of spring. Yes, or no. I don't know. How to look it up. You're the one that told us. No, I didn't tell you that acts you if it was your storm Jonah lead. It's tomorrow is tomorrow think so. I say today, I think it's tomorrow. The the. Vernal equinox is today. It's today was right there you go keys J clan. You were right. When you didn't know. We didn't have the answer. Now. You're right. Use it. So. Pay somebody and they can help me with the answer and get me through. Well, that's what Google's for the exactly equinoxes today. I spring welcome. I feel like there should be like light rain, some blue pink flowers or wasn't light rain. Be raining on and off throughout the day. So be careful out there traffic drought. Excuse me. Ada spring. No, he's a pitcher for the dodgers. So it's light rain mist in the air handed out. Do do do you say in and out Spanish, I may wanna use that later. What did you say in and out? Anthro? Oh boy. Fritter then through you got right down type it so much being in professor go right ahead. Request Wednesday, by the way. So if you have some incentive, Chris, and at the Rajin, we'll put it together for you. Coby was talking about what the Lakers should you forward? With regard to Anthony Davis in the core. And this is his advice. Kobe Bryant's advice to magic and LeBron. I think it's just a matter of being patient. Obviously, they'll make smart decisions you have opportunities things pieces that you can trade assets and things of that sort or you can stay with the young us. We're extremely talented and have great upset and let them the velo either direction you go should be a good direction. And how about LeBron if he would asking for some advice as guy who has been the face of the Lakers yourself for such a long time. What would you advise him? No. You just gotta keep pushing seizes like this. Or would make the championships worth. He's got to stay with it. It'd be fun. He also said that go like this before winning championships. Oh, yeah. Member he wanted to quit. He wouldn't trade it. It's called post Shak. It's the swish Parker air. No. I said did go. Go to this prior to winning any championships. Oh, no. Because he wasn't the man they were on sent when he first got there. They had shock and they were going like this. They were climbing better. And better better note, thirty thirty one in what forty thirty one thirty one forty thirty one in forty. Yeah. They wouldn't have thirty one before I'm just listening to cope when Shaq, but when Shaq with to Miami, and it was a reboot or. Yeah. It was a struggle. He was giving you thirty seven a game and still couldn't get them to five hundred. I remember that. But I'm just telling about when he started the whole run and shack also excuse me Coby also said that if you get a chance to trade for Anthony Davis, you trade Francini Davis. This was this is not a you protect the young guys at all costs that you'd be caused that. If you get Anthony Davis, you do it. And if you miss fine, you still have a strong plan B. Did you got an opportunity to develop these guys they're going to get better? Lebron's gonna make them better. But he was. Unambiguous in his assessment that if he's Anthony Davis. He said he's not just one of the best players league right now is one of the best players ever. And I think that this is this is what magic wants is what LeBron wants in this. Kobe clearly kind of maybe saying, hey, get ready. I was I was scratching I was scratching my head yesterday. Because I was talking to somebody dowdy in the basketball, really heavy in Georgia. Donald I said, I was talking to somebody. Dow, gee, I thought they was dowdy and. In. And he was telling me, you know, he goes to me, which was was fully says, you know, all his Anthony Davis. What does Anthony Davis ever done wouldn't wiz? He ever wanted any major. Okay. Yeah. He out of the first round, he eight years key. He'd been the league. And I'm sitting here. Well, however long is big oven seven and I'm sitting in. I'm thinking about cell. He he's a basketball guy. He and he was like to think about it for him. And I'm like, yeah. You he says what does he ever if you all that you can put the pelicans on your back that you really can do some because if you looking at it Jaanus and you looking at it them type LeBron antipodeans they put their teams on the back in. They really move something. Oh, no. He just was. Say wasn't. We're hey, he say wasn't a great play. I know what you're saying. He just giving me his professional opinion because I never really thought of. No, no, I I hear executive saying, and there is a degree of truth to that. But we just talked about Kobe. Three rings give you thirty seven a game can get the Lakers to look like anything like you could be as great as great can great can be. But if you don't have something to to help, you you can drop I mean, think about we'll Chamberlain Chamberlain was completely unstoppable. Celtics, repeat them every time every single around. Remember, I mean, you're talking about average fifty points game. Did you ever see what play? No. But I can read. I you know about that. I like, let's see what my eyes. It says fifty points a game. You know, doesn't matter. What the era was he was. Yeah. I gotta see it though, the game not a chip to show for it. I hear what you're saying about Anthony because we I didn't say it was being told what you're what you're listening in this individual is Dowd into basketball like, no other. And I just was like, okay. He makes a lot of what you're saying. It does what he was saying is you don't empty you don't empty, but you're not it's not empty by definition. You have LeBron it's half full at worst. I think we've oversimplified it not us just the the idea of basketball that if you have a star player therefore, you should be in the mix. I think you kind of have to flip it on its head. I think you have to have a star player to be in the mix. But just having one doesn't put you there. An Anthony Davis is the perfect example Davis is on the shortlist of best players in the league. You're not getting past five or six before you're saying his name as one of the best players and into the guy that you were talking to his point is they've had him and. One one playoff series. They'd be Portland last year. And that's it. They haven't done anything outside of that. But it's more of the starting point in the end point because Anthony Davis having him hasn't really got you much. But if you have him, and then you can surround him with the ancillary pieces, then you got a chance to do some damage, and that's where the Lakers LeBron right now. It's not just having LeBron. That's the beginning of it. But it's not the you gotta go get the complimentary pieces or the secondary piece and Anthony Davis is so funny because if I told you that in thirty the Braun, and then you got to other players with them that give you over fifteen fifteen point game over fifty about fifty percents shooting. You would think that would be enough, but it's not just personnel. Clearly, it's also about Xs and os. Anthony Davis has suffered from a lack of direction from the front office as much as anything dealing with Xs and os. He's had a couple of coaches. I think he has a very good coach right now in Albany, gentry. But with that being said. If you don't surround them with the right pieces. It really doesn't matter. How great a player you are pagey might trout really matter because you look at the clippers who went again last night, not a single all-star squad. In fact, I don't think they had a guy. That's maybe all star team on the squad as Lou Williams never made it I don't think lose ever made individual individual wars. But I'm thinking made an all star team. Nari has made an all star team season. Yeah, kids. So you're somebody go into the playoffs without a present or past all-star squad. It takes more than just talent obvious and a coach in an organization that has a direction and a plan executes the plant Rams and the raiders both of them. Brought defense to town keys take it or shake it next back to the Bobby Brown. Are you one of those guys? You don't see it? It's never happened. Yeah. Exactly. Tell me about Bobby Jones cones paid linebacker the nineteen thirties. And all that. I don't Bobby Jones cone all those names. Not gonna do they got three or four names. And he was drained here. He was the greatest moment. I didn't see it. Sorry. Didn't it? This was the beginning to end right things. This is that last album. Yeah. This is. Nobody humping around. Doc day. Then you watch documentaries and find out this make believe they too for some hoping later, we got some stuff. How do you say in Spanish again anthro photo? Yes. Yes. Here. Hold on one second Travis. No body humping around. Humping around my bags hurt. But I still got a little little something something Rams and the raiders added defensive players yesterday time for keys, take it or shake it. But. So in a rundown drivers, they should have been ready. They should have been ready. We thought that it might happen. It did happen. The Rams at linebacker pass rushing specialist. Clay Matthews to a two year deal. Take it or shake key taking for the Rams. Linebacker, and it's not cost him a whole lot of money. They gave them a two year deal, which is really a one year deal with a try out or one year deal with a pardon. The second year where they say, hey, we're going to give you this as a going away present the thing with him is he's got to stay healthy hit three and a half sacks last year. You know, if he can stay healthy, he certainly could provide some depth obviously to that defense in way Phillips somewhat minute Namur with him for quite some time. Now, he finally gets an opportunity to put his hands on him. We'll see if he has gas. Let's say isn't this? Say isn't this funny getting to do ever somebody who can't seem that they used to have a is always feel that way? Though, they always want to touch you in the end when you're on your way out because they think they can get that last bit. Jeff hide. No. You got one knew. He's a little bit of a change in scheme in what they're doing going to benefit him at all. Or is it just it look is birth certificate is what it is his dominant in the NFL is what it is. And this is what it is. He has a formerly great football player who isn't anymore. Well, I think you gotta look at he could play inside linebacker to because he did that a couple years for the Green Bay Packers as well. As the stand up outside linebacker on the rush side. So if you if you looking at it when they lose baron, and you say, okay, they saved themselves six and a half million dollars by allowing him to go in a pickup. Clay Matthews deca, do some things with sue not soon necessarily, but with Donald and those guys in front of them, then it's a win win for why not take why not take a stab at what you got to lose. Yeah. I mean as long as they're not doing it at the expense of somebody who might be better young. And it doesn't feel like they are. Somebody. I don't know if they can find somebody that can do it at a cheaper value. Then a guy who's already been doing it for ten years. Are we going to get a? Georgia to since we picking up all the. Packers. We don't need that to happen. The Ramsey because Aaron Donald gets to the quarterback as often as he does as tackle in his getting twenty sacks season. But fact of the matter is the Rams did not get to the quarterback. They're kind of in the middle of the pack when it comes to sacking the quarterback this maybe gives them a little bit of an extra advantage go to the raiders, and we talked that they were visiting yesterday. It's official vaunt has birthed one year five million dollar deal with the raiders take it or shake it keep going to take sake. Here's the interesting thing about taking this one is because when you look at birth. He's you know, he's had some issues on the football field. But that's what I that's what I want though on my team. I want the nastiness I want a guy that's playing violent. That's what it is. I want those collisions. I want him to scare. I I want him to scare the opposing team as much as he can. I want them to think about when they come into the middle of the field. It's dude that's ready to do some harm new you. He's not very nice. You know, you don't want that guy. You want somebody who's going to do some harm guide? Here's a bad guy. That's what you you wanna you wanna sit in that room. You want that team? If you're sitting in that room for that team say this dude here, he's a bad guy. You keep your head on the SUV when you watch out for him. Because if you're not looking he's going to do something to you. And then be suspended for the four games after that eight is long as he doesn't hurt my team. I'm all for taking. Here's Andrew Hawkins talking about the difference of playing with. Burfoot and playing against him playing with them. He brings that edge to the game that every team needs. Yes. He does things to get you in trouble and penalties. But when you're in the game on your team in the locker room, and you need a play, you know, you can rely on. These are really good linebacker playing against him might have been the scariest part of being in the NFL when you're planning. It's a guy who has very little regard for rules or fines, and it doesn't matter. Once he makes the decision to decapitate you. That's what's going to happen. It's scary. I don't doubt berry. You got this. Do you going across the middle something that I worked my tire career, and they go tell you this do be careful key because he's going to try to hit you when you're not looking now you going across the middle. You you not even focusing on the plate you. Where's he he's dropping? Okay. Russell. He dropped me. He may look me up. Do you feel the part of the reason scared, but you know, little receivers you would have been cautious. You wouldn't have been scared. Do you feel as if because NFL is making such a conscientious push to for players safety that they're looking at guys like birth differently and their targeting them in terms of refereeing and making sure that that guy is not going to get away with stuff because they're trying to send a message league wide about Claire say easy, easy. A poster child for you know, whatever you wanna call it violent place. They already know going into the game watch out for you. They already know it very quickly Randall Cobb former pack wide receiver Randall Cobb one year deal with the Dallas Cowboys five million bucks. Take it or shake gonna take it. Thank would it. They added another slot receiver. They lose Colby's -ly. You know, he's better than take on Austin. He's better than guy hurt. I forgot the guy Raj the one that got hurt. Not. But the other. Not. I know you're talking about. Got hurt. He's better than both of those guys are so you certainly if Cobb is healthy, you certainly get an upgrade at despot in the slot. If for that Prescott when he's had an inside receiver doing work. He's been a hell of a quarterback. All right. So there's one person in Oakland who did not like vaunt his perfect will tell you who it is next. Okay. Courtesy of Curtis Purdue on Twitter this classic from Travis. Yeah. That's true. Streamline it. Well, look time is important. All right. We got stuff to do on a Sunday afternoon to get him in and out the is three hours, the very first I went to that was not black. It was over with my thirty five to forty minutes. I looked around. Did they love her? Where's choir coming out moving them along? You know, we don't like to mourn to much three hours each year. He's just go downstairs get the spaghetti dinner three hours. Then you gotta go to the burial site. You got to dry slow, Dan. You gotta go to the house and get the spaghetti. And all that, you know, there's always the, but that's a that's a man that might be a five hour little. Right and start to finish funeral funerals. Like to go to the church, and then you go to the graveyard. Yeah. Two days. Right. Like you very much. Yeah. Yeah. But you know, what they do love. Because you know, you say did they love her? No. Daddy. That's right full to show. The people is added again, Tom we're giving away. Hope they Wednesday tickets of four pack of tickets to the L A F C F L AFC game every hour. You know, we don't do this Saturday LAF see in reality Salt Lake, you know, there from Utah. Oh, go ahead. I think in California. Yeah. They're gonna go ahead. You ever? Go ahead to hits Keyshawn. No. I'm sit in this section with the thirty nine forties. No thirty to fifty to shop out there. People making California the game is at seven thirty. Now, here's how you can win. Call eight seven seven seven ten ESPN caller seven who can answer. It is here did key take it or shake it on the ram signing. Clay matthews. That's right. Keep listening because next hour we're going to give you another chance to win. All right. So vaunt has perfect is with the raiders and vaunt perfect is a guy that his what do we want to call it reckless play to be charitable did not start in the NFL? He was reckless at Zona state. He was record high school here. This is something that his fault him from his time as a as a high school football player. Mike Mayock in two thousand twelve who loves now at least by title, the general manager of the Oakland Raiders said that vont has perfect was quote, non draftable. Here's what he said. I put this tape on with absolutely zero preconceived notions. I watched three tapes and really didn't like him as a football player. I think he's a non draftable kid for me. He's a free agent. So I guess if we had any confusion whatsoever as to whether or not Mike Mayock was gonna make personnel decisions for the raiders, we now know because vaunt birth is a raider and Mike Mayock didn't like him at the time. He probably changes to now. Because of you know, what went on in Burford career how play in on top of that the defensive coordinator Gunther coached him at Cincinnati linebacker coach for several years. There didn't became the defensive coordinator. Who's now defensive coordinator raiders now may act never had Mayock is there as. Tally evaluator, not a decision maker this not fool ourselves. He's a talent evaluator. What's the difference? He will be evaluating the talent scouting basically air for not be making the decisions on who to sign who not sign to trade him, not trade. That's all John grooten. We he's just there as a go between between grooten and the rest of his staff and group could lean on him asked him, of course, because he's busy coaching. So he can always go into his office and say, what do you think about this guy put the film and take a look at it? We think we should do this in ECE sounding board. Maybe he's not making the ultimate decision. But if he's the one, okay? But if if I'm Jon Gruden I go to Mike now and say, what do you think about this player, and I come in at that point? I'm going to have a great deal influence on who were signing who are not because I can tell you. This guy is a bum. He can't play dead in a cowboy movie. Yeah. Say I love this guy is guy we gotta get. But at the end of the day. John's not listening to you, John John minds already made up his mind is made up. That's why a year ago he had his own style of Scotty. Reggie McKenzie had his own so McKinsey, those guys do a John would just basically go with the bee's. I which is his group. So why? Yes, man. This guy earn his decisions. Yeah. That's and he's a scout. He's basically a scout. What he's been doing for the NFL network over those years for the draft and looking at tape into. It's basically a scout. A glorified scout would attack as general manager and coaches in people personnel people you can go back and revisit a lot of comments made by about players in these leagues all the time about dating like this was this. This was that because when they miss they don't want to admit that they missed ever admit that they missed got. I think this was probably in terms of in terms of. May I may this was one of the worst things he could ever see it. Well, actually, there's more no more worse because I just looked up the couple of collections of because he's been public figure analyze talent as you said. Got some hits. And I got some MRs would you like to know mailbox hit so misses first missions? I knew you were missing. Because the hints I'm gonna tell you. I never even saying thing about hits. Andrew luck. So you're right. Here's a quote, the kind of projection I want to make with this player is Steve Young off to fill is he the kind of person you want to be the face your franchise. He says, yes. Who's the player? He's talking about. Johnny manziel. Uncle boy is another one. I think the safest pick is blank blank has very good that I would compare to Matt Ryan who is he talking about. Mark sanchez. Gets better when he misses I'm telling you, he's top ten pick. I believe in blink. Who's the Percy's talked about Blaine gabbert brain gabbert. He needs to back if milk Nells. Stop talking about quarterbacks. S three MRs. Yeah. Give me some good. Just give me some good. You want some good help him out here. Okay. All right. All right. So here we go. He's explosive off the ants. He's tough. He's twitched. He's got a little edge about him. When I watched your day clown. Cleo Meck, oh, but that was a real strength. Wow. I think someone is going to make philosophical and schematic commitment to this kid and change what they do a fence. I can't wait to see. Blink. Lamar jackson. He was a Lamar Jackson fan. That's D, isn't it. Yes. He's a starting quarterback there rare. Flacco out of town that wasn't an easy one. You know, it wasn't an easy one. But we don't know if he's right yet either. No. We don't know if he's right saying that he deserved to go in the first round people were both sides. I'm okay with him going in the first round. But you we can't call that a win yet. I mean, all of a sudden they forced him to throw a forward pass in the playoffs. They wouldn't a first round. That wasn't a win was a stiff that the Browns. Casey, Eric, Casey Weeden. What was the name Brandon? We he was a first round or two James was a hit for him. He's a good player. Yeah. So he's he's has some Darwin James was the number one safety on the board. Right. He's a all pro in his first year. It was a hit come home. Stop Johnny Manziel as Steve Young. That's that's not missed. That's a miss of catastrophic portion of aim Gabbard ten pick blank hours. Leasing lean Gabbard lasted a few seasons in the league. Johnny Manziel went from the league to out of the league to candidate to the af he's. Ten minutes. He said Mark Sanchez was the next Matt Ryan that. That. First of all Ryan is about year more big him. I mean, come on whatever man fifty. What's kim? Fifty. What's the latest on the US's scandal headline in the morning, stat skin Dole's? There you go. That's next.

Week in Geek: Amazon's delivery bots

"It'll be fascinating to see how Amazon's prototype navigates the street. You know, if it's truly supposed to be autonomous. What happens when it gets up to a stoplight? I don't have a lot of faith in teenagers. I guess imagining rolling down the street and now kids on their bike riding up to I mean blind bikes end up in the lake what he thinks going to happen to a little scout rolling near and dear apartment complex or whatever the digital generations cow tipping. Everybody. Welcome to geekwire. I'm geekwire editor Todd Bishop. I am sitting editor Monica Nicklesberg geek life reported Kurtz, Lahser making his triumphant return to the show. You had a great interview on the podcast recently with some dude who would only use this flip phone and here you are now in the big time. He hasn't called. He hasn't texted either isn't a semi gifts your way. Hey, we've got some fun stuff to talk about this week and some meaningful stuff. I I want to start with the surprise from Amazon of the week. And that is the rollout of the autonomous delivery. Robot named scout? Which monica. Got a dog named scout. Geekwire office every day. So she's been really flustered by this news. I saw my thought we'd wasn't scout was the name of the first treasure truck. If I'm not mistaken must be a popular name. For people who miss this story. It is a basically a cooler sized robot on six wheels that rolls around, and it's Thomas, but the whole idea is that it can deliver goods items that you order on Amazon to your door, essentially, although it calls you to come on out and get it. Amazon is testing this in Snohomish county north of Seattle, and they have six of them they're package delivery robots. And this is just the latest example of Amazon trying to solve what is known in the ecommerce world and the shipping world is the last mile as mile, but it's not so good yet to that. They can do it just on their own. They have to have people walking along with them during this test period is is this the future is at a novelty. What do you what do you think of this? You know, I was miss as messing with net leave yesterday who wrote that story as it was break. I said hurry up and write that. So I can make fun of which I never circled back to do because I feel like I make fun of Amazon a little too much. But you know, I like the idea of of solving this problem of too many trucks on the road or fossil fuel burning vehicles. That are, you know, hauling packages around their neighborhoods, and you know, and if it's electric robots or selectric drones or whatever that that can sort of simplify that process or solve that or even if it's bicycles like like UPS turning to Seattle, I'm all for it. But these things these things, and they just I said to net the first thing, I said was how's that thing? Get up my porch steps, and so all right now, I gotta be home to accept the package. It's a big enough problem when I'm not home in packages, are stolen. So now, I've got this cooler looking thing that rolls up in calls me and says camman outside you've got a package, and I feel like that's some of those things can be worked out. But it seems like there's a more fundamental problem here, which is that I can only see this real. Not really working in cities. And my understanding is that cities are not really were that last mile challenges. So confounding, I think it's harder in rural areas that are served by the US postal service, but not really any other shippers to get the packages to people's doorsteps, and I can't really see one of these tiny robots going like miles and miles through a rural area. So it seems designed for cities where there are a lot of options, including bite, quarriers and other ways that it's not that hard to deliver packages to the door. The the whole notion of getting rid of these giant trucks of scaling this down. Now, of course, this is basically doing one or two packages. I would assume as opposed to the giant well that's in the back of the UPS truck. But I I like the idea of the small efficient. Energy efficient and environmentally friendly way of doing it. So that's kind of cool. I also like that Amazon is doing this in the Seattle region, and that's kind of my own personal thing. But one of my concerns with HQ to is that Amazon will start doing a lot of this prototype testing elsewhere in the country, and frankly, maybe I'm just a geek this way. But I I love the fact that we get the things I hear like Amazon fresh pickup the treasure truck, Amazon go, and maybe that isn't a widespread concern for anybody. But me, I mean, I guess it depends where the executive team is. But it's hard for me to imagine them. No longer doing that testing in Seattle. Maybe it's just because it's always been done that way. But I don't know. I can't see it Amazon fresh pickup or one of these tiny robots rolling around northern Virginia. We'll never I mean, New York. I mean worlds if it plays in the big city in the Big, Apple, right? You know, that's true. But New York is also pretty unique. It's I think Seattle is more. Similar to wider range of mid size cities. What was the name of that retail store that they opened in New York? Gosh is the one where it's all the popular Amazon products. It'll come to me, it was an alternative retail store. Yeah. I'll figure it out. Anyway. So that was kind of cool. This is a concept that many different startups have tried this idea of sort of ice chest on wheels that travels around one of the startups that I saw that was doing this CS a couple years ago, the consumer electronic show their big issue is traffic lights. So it'll be fascinating to see how Amazon's prototype navigates the street. You know, if it's truly supposed to be autonomous. What happens when it gets up to a stoplight? I'm also curious whether this will go the way of drone delivery, where I mean, I don't know what the latest I heard on that was, but I felt like it was supposed to be making more traction than it is now or if it'll actually become something that we see on our streets, delivering packages. I think the F A regulations are part of big part of the issue there in the US, and why Amazon is doing the initial actual commercial deployments of drones in the UK. I think it rely. I I don't have a lot of faith in. Teenagers. I guess magic. Sing rolling down the street and now kids on their bike riding up to it. Certainly these are probably being deployed from a larger vehicle that's not far far away sorta like drones will come back to a mother vehicle and get a package and then fly off. But man, look, I mean lime bikes end up in the lake what do you think's gonna happen to a little scout role into your into your apartment complex or whatever digital generations cow tipping. I think about this. If you think about the ultimate manifestation of this vision. Will we have just little robots cruising down every sidewalk? Oh, yeah. There goes the Amazon robot just like you would see the FedEx or the UPS truck. And oh there goes the WalMart robot. Now, delivering to I don't know. There's a reason they made it so cute. I mean, it's kind of scary concept. But you look at this little blue like it's just a door -able. It's this little blue munchkin robot that rolls on by who wanna see that. It's got the little Amazon smiley face underneath the prime logo. So it must be great. Right. Everybody's happy. All right. So that is the new Amazon autonomous package delivery robot so autonomous. So this thing is self driving. The whole idea is that it would go down the sidewalk without any direct control. Although clearly, they do have to have some kind of human intervention at this point. It's called scout. And it's being tested in Snohomish county north of Seattle wonder, why Snohomish county a little odd. But here's the thing. If you've seen one of these let us know at tips at key, choir dot com, we prefer video photos, if you can get an interview with this autumn has robot that's the plan or the human companion robot. But seriously, we've been trying to track down we have not yet founded as of this recording. But there six of them, deployed up install mish county. All right. So that is our first news story. We're gonna take a break. We will be right back on the week. You're listening to geekwire. Welcome back to geekwire. It's Todd Bishop with Monica Nicklesberg and Kurt Schlosser. We are talking about the biggest headlines of the week on geekwire and the broader world of technology. Monica. You were tracking some technology that actually helped to influence the outcome of the election in a legal way. During the mid terms. Mexico's the story. Sure. So we learned that Alex Andrea Cossio Cortez. Now, a congresswoman from New York used a new app, and it really helped her campaign and helped her cinch. The really historic primary victory that she won over an incumbent who had held the seat for two decades. Everyone predicted that she wasn't going to win and it was three weeks from the primary. She was down in the polls and two members of her campaigns tech team developed this app that has now been formally called reach at the time. It didn't have a name, and it allowed them to canvas voters a lot more effectively, and it actually really moved the needle on their voter turnout and engagement. What exactly does it do to enable this and are their privacy? Implications of collecting voter information tell us about this app. Share? So the traditional way that grassroots campaigning happens is campaigns. Have these voter lists that are it's a hit list of voters who seem likely to be persuaded to vote for their candidate. And they'll either knock on doors or use an app to text or dial these folks, but they're kind of seeing diminishing returns. And if you've ever been contacted by a campaign, you might know that you're not always that inclined to talk to them. But what they found was that while they're on. Cheers. We're getting kind of weary of those traditional tactics they were constantly outed events talking politics and meeting people often people who were supporters, but they didn't really have any way to record their information. So that they could follow up with them. And so that the campaign could add them to their database. So this app is a search engine of a campaigns entire voter database. And anywhere. You are. You can whip it out if you're talking to somebody you can look them up really quickly survey them record data about them. And it's just a way to canvas in a more natural kind of by more natural means. Really help her win. Or was it one of those things that was just a little bit more soft in terms of the the way that it impacted the campaign like they feel that it impacted and helped her engage with voters, but are they able to quantify it actually. Yeah. So of all of the likely voters that they contacted during the campaign. Fifteen percent were contacted using this app and of the people contacted using reach. They saw fourteen percent higher voter turnout than those who are contacted by traditional means. So those are pretty significant numbers. Interesting. So this is now rolling out to other people. I'm sure this is going to both Democrats Republicans libertarians they're sharing this broadly right to improve the general state of democracy. Not at all. No. But it is spreading so after they developed his apple and saw these meaningful results, they weren't necessarily planning to roll it out into a startup, but they started getting contacted from campaigns all over the country because the kind of world of very progressive politics is pretty tight knit including a candidate. Who's now running for Seattle city council named Sean Scott, he described it as this legendary app that he'd just heard murmurings about and wanted to use in his campaign. So they decided it was worthwhile enough to start their own business called reach. And it was used a beta version of it was used in fourteen different campaigns during the midterms, but there is a catch. It's only available to Democrats and in general elections any democrat can use it. But in primaries, it's only being made available to candidates who sworn off corporate donations. Interesting. It's kind kinda like technology is a hammer. Gerber a lever. I guess they're not shy about their. Goal there and Bishen is to enable a progressive politicians to have more leverage against corporate donations, basically. So it's really interesting to see this spread to see the local element of a city council candidate using it. And I'm just curious to see where this goes. Because it kind of reminds me of the the way that the Obama campaign used a lot of technology and grassroots organizing in order to make a real difference. And he was also an kind of an underdog candidate in the beginning like. Oh, see. Are we going with a OC? It's a lot easier to say, Alexandra Cossio Cortez. What's so hard about that? I like it. I like your story and initially when I saw it. I thought it was in this context. But in the context of her larger sort of internet presence that she is mastering in these first few weeks of of her term in congress and getting recognition for. Yeah. It's actually really fascinating what she's been able to do with technology. And it's something that other progressive candidates are definitely looking at and trying to emulate. This is something I traded with Sean Scott about to I don't know if you follow her on Instagram Todd, but she has a really personal casual kind of a lot of people say it's very authentic presence where she'll be reading congressional documents and making instant Rahman on Instagram story and just talking directly to her followers about the fact that she still doesn't make a lot of money, and she is eating cheap food, and our she'll do, you know video carpool karaoke in the car, just, you know, record her road trips. It feels like she could be your friend telling you about. What it's like to go to congress. And then you combine that kind of personal engagement with actual data. That's pretty powerful it is. And I think that it really speaks to younger voters who feel like there's this big gap between them and their elected officials, and her whole thing is, narrowing that gap, I still come back to the privacy issue. Like, if you're sitting there and your voter, and and you're talking with the Representative of somebody or perhaps even the candidate herself can't imagine her pulling out her smartphone and filling in the database, but still I like. I know I'm happy to consider voting for you. But I'll give you my vote not my data that you should mention that. Because I think a lot of people don't realize how much publicly available voter data. There is I wrote about another app earlier this year called vote with me. And it's pretty fascinating it uses your contacts to search the voter database, and it can tell you which friends and family members have voted in the past election and previous elections, whether they voted democrat or Republican, and so you can even search through and see like I want identify my friends and relatives who are in districts where there might be a swing seat or are. They might be able to make the make difference close districts. I wanna see if they voted like me in the past. And then I want to send them a message saying, hey, I just want to remind you to vote in this election. So there's actually a lot of information that's already out there. Even though it might feel a little invasive string. That's great now that obviously is one story of the season. Congress is back in session. The government is not running. But. These this whole new wave of representatives, including AO see are in office and obviously making lots of headlines. The 'nother moment of the season right now is NFL playoffs. Kurt lou. You are. You covered one of the stories from the weekend that you almost need to see the video of Bill Belichick throwing the Microsoft surface. But describe what happened in the patriots game this past weekend. It's almost like we watch these games now once on sour beloved Seahawks have been eliminated. It's it's necessary to sort of keep an eye on. Whether there are tech angles for us that that kind of manifest themselves in these games. And certainly it did with last Sunday's game between the patriots and the chiefs, and it's a familiar story because the Microsoft sideline technology has come up in these stories before because it's an easy thing for players and coaches, take their frustrations out on when things aren't going right much different than the printed out black and white photos that they used to look at on the sidelines. Now, they've got this tablet in hand. And Bill Belichick has been a vocal has been vocal in the past about his disdain for these things and for the technology, but he was using on Sunday. And. And play. Call didn't go his way, and he slammed the thing into the turf picked it up took a few steps and then hurl that over his bench into the crowd. I was going to say it did it actually go into the camera and track the flight of the of the surface pro just kind of followed Bill as he turned back around with his hoodie on and and watch the game. But it was it was enough to get some some reaction on Twitter, obviously, including from Panos Panay that the Microsoft hardware chief, and he kinda did a video grab of his television. And was like, and then he throws it. And it was just him laughing in the background was was a nice, Microsoft reaction. But he did tweet that don't worry we test for this sort of treatment. See I love that spin. Because in the past the reason, the Bill Belichick has thrown those things because he was frustrated I believe with the technology. It wasn't giving him what he wanted here. I think he was just frustrate. With our situation. And so then it becomes a stress test hardware. Don't worry. If you get one of these. You know, you can throw it all you want stomp on it. And it'll be fine. I think Microsoft should definitely do a Super Bowl ad around that sort of my God, if they're not they should be whether it's with standing players or whether it's real footage. I think they could have some fun with it with themselves. That's great. All right. Those are a couple of the news stories that caught our attention this past week. We will be right back with the random channel. You're listening to geekwire. Welcome back to geekwire. It's time for the random channel that moment of the week when we talk about all of the random items that we were buzzing about behind the scenes this week Monica Nicklesberg what you're random channel item for this week. I really captivated by buzzfeed's. Big scoop on the Russian investigation this week and the fallout from it. The scoop was that BuzzFeed reported that Trump directed Michael Cohen. Longtime fixer to lie to congress about the company's dealings in Moscow in Russia. And it just I've been fascinated with it more from a journalist perspective because but speeds, the only publication that ran with the story that had the story. It was a scoop and the special counsel's office put out a statement kind of denying it but not with any specifics, which is so hard to do something with as a publication. And you know, I just I watched their editor in chief gone nightly news, and he really fervently defended their reporting that they had it on from several sources, they stand by their still reporting the story, they wished that the special counsel's office was more specific. But you just have to be really you have to know. They're really sweating as the only ones with a bombshell story. Like this having their credibility questioned and having anonymous sources, so not really being able to do more than just say we stand by it. Do you believe it it seems like something's off? I think that reporters have a stronger motivation to get things right until the truth, then special counsel investigators who have a whole host of other motivations. Well, I don't know. I mean, I this is all complete speculation. But I just looking at it as an outsider, I think that serious journalists like the ones who reported this story there due north as the truth. It's it's to get things. Right. They don't always get things. Right. That is their main goal and the special counsel's office. Their main goal is to protect this investigation. I can see why they would wanna manage their own time line. So something may be off. But we just won't we won't know at least not in the immediate future. And I I do feel bad for these reporters who are in this position. Watching that BuzzFeed saga unfold last week to that was like Friday night that the special counsel released that statement late and that I think that BuzzFeed story came out Thursday night and then BuzzFeed to their credit came back early this week like Tuesday, or so with another story on how they had, you know, hundreds or thousands of pages of documents showing that the plans for that Moscow tower were more than just casual conversations and sort of contradicted Rudy Giuliani and all his claims about how it was going nowhere. It looked very much like it was headed somewhere. I mean, these stories are really complicated and anonymous sourcing Israeli complicated too. Because he can't know the agendas of everyone who doesn't want to put their name to something. The other side of it is that running pharaoh put out a tweet or statement saying that he declined to run with parts of the story because he couldn't substantiate them, so interesting. Well, the one indisputable thing in all of this is that tower. It would have been spectacular especially Putin's penthouse. Oh my God. Yeah. That was the whole idea was that they had specifically said they were not going to sell the condo on the top floors that they were going to reserve that for a gift rate for Putin. And but the interior of that did you see like the atrium where it went across the stairs. It was it was it. There's no other word for it. But tremendous. Marble columns. Gold-plated? All right. Here's my random channel item. I've been a longtime fan of basketball, the folks who've followed our new numbers geek podcast know, that I've been digging into the numbers behind basketball and this past week. I got a chance to talk with sue bird, the WNBA legend about the numbers that matter to her. It's going to be on upcoming episode of numbers. Geek, but the cool thing was. I've come across his game that I like to play with folks in these situations where I give them a document that I take key information away from and then I have them explain how they would read that document that relates to their specialty. And then guess what the document is without the identification information. So in Soubert's case, I gave her a stat sheet from a legendary college basketball game that figured largely in her emergence as a star. And it was so much fun. I'm this is this is a giant tease because I'm not going to tell you any of it. I'm just gonna tell you subscribe to numbers. Geek subscribe to the podcast, we talk about all sorts of cool government data. But we also have lots of fun with sports, and entertainment, and Peter Sehgal is going to be coming up soon as well. Talking about the numbers behind running Peter cycles, the host of wait, wait, don't tell me and avid runner and running columnists. So anyway, I'm having tons of fun with this podcast numbers. Geek with Steve bomber the. For Microsoft CEO, and the founder of USA facts, which is our partner on the podcast. And if you haven't checked it out, I'd invite you to do that at geekwire dot com slash numbers. Geek, she's like how fun it is. For you to give someone a worksheet thrilled by giving them homework. It's not just a worksheet Monica ministry. It's a mystery. It's it's later on. I actually I also gave Steve a an income statement. I mean, if you wanna talk about fun when you get a mystery in can I think fun. The mystery income statement, oh my God. It's like you take away all the identifying characteristics of the company or any of the company's name and have him tell you how the power reason income statement. And then try and guess which company it is. Anyway, I'm better at it than Steve not yet. No, I had to give sue quite a few clues before she even recognized that it was one of her games. Let alone which line was her. No, he was he's a wizard at it. He in both cases that I've done this with him. He's figured it out with very minimal clues and down. Seek. We're gonna have to turn the tables on you and see if you can figure out something you like give me gig wires financials, and I could try and tell you I don't know what year it was. There's something story traffic are exactly. So anyway, that's that's my random channel had them for the week. I'm also looking forward to the geekwire bash and this should be your random channel Kurt. So the geekwire Basch is are an annual festival as I call it. Our geek festival carnival. Yeah. I see banned the word carnival very controversial word inside the heat wear offices. I banned the word carnival. I think there's a negative connotation to carnival. Connotation of carnival. It's cheap small town. God wrote. Okay. All right. I like festival better festival. It's because it's more of a festival you've got three ping pong tournaments dodgeball tournament. You got settlers. Settlers baton foosball, line or chill. Reality. Video games board games yet you name it. And for the first time this year this giant event that we hold every year is going to be open to all ages. So Kurt your son. And my daughter have beta tested this as kids in the past. And we let them run around even though it was kind of against the rules, but just to see how it would would fly with with kids, and we're gonna have a junior geek zone this year. Yeah. It's your son loved it. Right. Highly recommended it's you know, it's a great space for your kid just to sort of lose his mind and go explore and and with with its sort of wide open and more kids there this year. Hopefully, I think it'll be more exciting in that regard. And the robotics challenge that we're hosting is sounds like a neat thing for kids to sorta catch that bug. Absolutely. So that's the choir bash. It's coming up on March seventh at CenturyLink field of. Vents center in Seattle. You can find out more and get tickets at key, choir dot com slash bash. It's very self serving random channel item. But I gotta tell you. I mean, like both the numbers and the geekwire bash like, I'm I'm I'm all in on this stuff. So I it's genuine genuine. Okay. That's all. I got anybody else got anything else. All right. Well, hey, it has been a lot of fun over the past few weeks. I think many of you know, that we made the decision to no longer do a radio show every week. We're no longer on. Kiro radio, we are frequently on KYW Monica, and I and Alan Boyle, and others and Kurt are all on KYW frequently, but I kind of like the fact that we don't have to worry about radio segments anymore. We can just sit here and talk. Although we've reverted to our speed talking Monica I can curse now. I mean, I don't think I have yet. But I like to have the option the potential is there said that a half hour ago. This thing up. Yeah. Just what freedom. All right with that. Don't forget to subscribe to the geekwire podcast.

No More Old Guys

"Hello and welcome to the collective podcast. We are are doing a dog shows which we do periodically. Why not why not we are in l._a. To altogether here today because i know some people have been following the saga today ladies and gentlemen. I got my chinese visa with one week to spare <hes> which may not sound like. It was a tight time schedule but i was a little bit worried about. Did you see any babies in line with you. I heard several takes newborn babies dozens of new wealth at least a dozen newborn babies were that's all young. Look who's with us here in l._a. Spend my <hes> my partner on team u._s._a. The last two weeks and i appreciate she ate that as an australian. I'll be rejoining them. I know for sure now we rejoin them and shanks and not withdrawing aaron fox although my wife would like the withdraw to spend more time with my family and this is ramona shelburne and ramona. We're in the studio in l. A. where you recorded or at least i should say tracked your thirty for thirty podcasts at his out today the sterling fare now. I'm just going to say stowing. Fair's fair surely fares fares. I because there are many there were <hes> you talk about this. All day and i know this from book tours. I don't want to overburden you with blabbing on about about it. We'll talk about a little bit but i'm good. Will you honestly it's been my life for like the last five years. It's like my side hustle right the last like every time you might see ramona for the last year she well. We've got this interview setup for the podcast for the podcast and i got a flight of detroit to talk to blake griffin for the the podcast and i got i mean you've been working on this forever and you feel when you listen to. I listen to the whole thing you feel the weight of the work. If that makes sense you feel the all the interviews you feel the the editing the music yeah you're you give it in a very much more more docile and professional tone than in this podcast so you have you have memory. How long were you in this room. God so so mario ruiz sitting over here. He's our engineer right now. Chris morales over there. <hes> adam bryant our producers and sound engineers here at e._s._p._n. E._s._p._n. l._a. Radio <hes> they have seen me have many many meltdowns in this room because tracking a podcast narrative podcast like that which is just like five hours a romance which unscripted this is actually what you're just talking right here. You just sit here and talking to a mic like when you do the pike cast. I have scripts that i'm reading. I have to deliver every line perfectly. You have to do each line like three or four or five different times because you wanna give them different cuts to work with sometimes sometimes your voice sounds a little different on each day like i had a little routine i would come in we. We spent like very many days in here. It was like me raina kelley from the undefeated who is like one of my really good friends in the business was the story editor on this and my my producer julia lowry henderson. She literally flew in from australia to like for mental support support and like helping me track because it's not like that easy to read scripts like this is an actual job that people do so yes so. I didn't the last this book that i wrote that the previous wrote <hes> i did the audio book and it was very difficult took three days. I was exhausted this last audio book. Someone else did it. So what does that tell you yeah. I mean it's it's so you didn't get tips from liev schreiber. I'm not a trained actress and like there were parts. I mean you know because you've listened to the podcast. There were some parts that i had to read that were fairly uncomfortable. I really into donald sterling's depositions and like. I thought i was going to have a harder time with it. Then i did like the first couple of times i was like laughing and then i was like nope just get into character. Just be donald j because there's some sure was on the on the podcast floor that donald's from the stories that i've heard donald sterling's stirling's <hes>. How do i want to put this artfully. He was not afraid of showing off off his girlfriend's and he was even not necessarily at times. <hes> shy about certain acts with these girlfriends not necessarily in public but where people could see him a fair statement yeah. That's a very fair statement. That put that artfully enough what you call it. I mean i don't i don't wanna listen. There's no prudishness to the pie. I literally like you know. There's even there's some stuff that you couldn't say that. I know the stories that you know. I've heard stories about plane. Rides and country car rides in country clubs and polo lounges yeah all that who's gonna play you in the movie. I don't know that'd be good. <hes> it was interesting <hes> doing this because usually when you write a story you don't put yourself in it too much. I'm not one of those even when i do long for my very rarely will take the first person but i sorta have to be in this like. I'm the narrate habits i mean. You're a little bit but it's not like i mean i mean just a few moments where i'm hop- i'll give a few monologues here and there but it is it is interesting when you are sort of like the reporters journey right like there's a couple of these holy moments if we can do that in this podcast though well well machines okay. There's a few of these like oh my gosh moments comments they go where i still remember being in my car calling david craft from the news desk in paying fifty so that when when they're gonna when they were gonna sell off underneath so one i don't want to give away the podcast but the negotiations for bomber steve bomber bomber to buy the clippers were amazing actually to negotiations both about purchases of team that you discuss in here. One is when jerry buss plus bought. The lakers couldn't get the mighty together at the o. Literally ramona the eleventh hour when when did jerry buss call donald sterling it was like eleven o'clock at night and they were needed to close in the morning. I assume the jerry buss have been trying to know somebody close to lake okay fell through so he thought he had enough money to close the deal with jack kente cook so jack kente cook so when i'm tracking this. I'd say jack kent cooke. That's a hard one to say. We're tracking the light grew up in washington so so he he had one of the most expensive divorces in california history right he until the records and tell them and tell the sterling's if they're smart for that. It's just easier to stay together and keep your money together. <hes> but jack has to sell the team and jerry buss basically wrigley like stalking him because he just wants to buy the lakers and all the holdings and he it's this really complicated real estate transactions yeah he had to buy the kings the lakers the forum some ranch up in fort to hone yeah. I want to know more about this ranch like this. I had to be a nice piece of property nice. Actually i think they're like drums. Daddy was like in the podcast. He's an agent who used to. He was like the like the west wing yeah. Okay you know the delay hill character okay so he's charley early like he's like the smart kid who's like. I law school and i'll bet i'll bet jerry buses. Bodied men could tell stories about bodies yes but drove down. They said like he one of his jobs was like go up to that ranch and come up with a plan what they do with it like should we do a winery. There's like tours so he's so he's <hes> he doesn't have enough money at the very end three million dollars short financing fell through and he calls up donald sterling at like eleven o'clock at night and goes over to their house and he knew jerry buss new donald sterling because they were both. She's like real estate guys in l. A. in the seventies and then a mutual friend named frank mary-anne who was actually stole part owner of the lakers and frank was like the social connector. He was like the guy that knew everybody. The mogul behind <hes> bus mary on enterprise i think is the name of the corporation that owned a bunch of apartment buildings around los angeles angeles and so donald goes yeah. I'm interested in n._b._a. Partners but i don't i don't really want peace of the lakers i i just i'll buy the apartment buildings from right all by i basically basically bus couldn't find financing his sell off some apartment buildings at the last minute eleven apartment buildings in santa monica what those are worth now he sold them for three and a half million dollars for like the last three and a half million needed to close in the morning like they went to the bank and got the money literally like went to the bank and got the money and that's like how jerry buss was able to close on sale. L. and jack kent cooke wasn't sure jerry was ever gonna be able to pull that off because it was really complicated real estate swab. It wasn't just a straight and money transaction for more time. They needed close. I mean that's how it goes yeah. He probably wanted somebody else. Want by the so okay so then that's that's. That's a good stories told at more length than we just told there but the other one was when balmer bought the team now to to go over this donald sterling had been declared mentally <hes> <hes> was it incompetent. What was the incapacity incapacitated so now shelly sterling has a team and basically. I want the podcast but she's got a deal with the n._b._a. They're going to sell it so she's taking bids but she had to do a sale the team in like ten days ten or twelve days so the mental incapacitation is what's called a plan b. This is her lawyer donald who furtive other plan bs <hes>. There's this <hes> there's this really kind of riveting detail that i i i keep thinking there's more to but i think it might have just been a matter of course but the sterling family trusts have been changed in december and reflect and it was changed out a clause that you do <hes> fairly frequently with older people that if one of them is found by doctors to be mentally incapacitated or not capable of managing the trust or being a partner and this all this just went down in may april when the recordings they were made in and around september okay so according to like six or seven months old but the so this is on the calendar so they make a change to the to the trust in christmas and then right as a member of the playoffs first round going on so that's just at the time so so he gets to see so they go through the court case he has declared <hes> mentor here this all back up a little bit so they so so the recordings recordings remain and the only reason they ever come out is because shelly sterling sterling actually sues vis-a-vis on blackmailing yeah. This is a black male thing but it was is because shelly was suing her and she just wanted her to drop the lawsuit. She's like i don't wanna give back this battling it kind of the whole point of being in the way. He gave her four cars. I yeah why do you have to give a mistress four cars and was always a bentley range rover ferrari. I heard one story about u._c._l._a. l._a. Some for our dealer that sold the solar sold them. The car was like two hundred fifty thousand dollar car actually like ran into a clippers employee. It was like all your boss was just here and that's when the clip employees knew something was up because donald wouldn't have driven a car like that was my thing like so he bought a condo. I don't know what this condo looked like week. She store for now figure out who covered this told me like they can always tell when view is home because it was like she wanted. One of those cars was out there like it was always so you know she and shit like cholesterol license plates and decker. She wanted to be noticed. <hes> was funny. She used to live in this apartment. It was like crappy little apartment in west hollywood and when and we were reporting this we actually went to the apartment just to see like the upgrade that she went from like once he bought the duplex. It's literally one street over. It's like on the other side of the apartment hartman but like that's l a real estate. You can save his new york home. You know it's like you're one street over and you're you're. You're from like your starter apartment. That's probably way overpriced that you you even when i moved to town and you're trying to be famous the duplex that your sugar daddy buys you all right so shelly has long story. Short show has the ability to sell the team so she's got sell the team even a short period of time you know these n._b._a. Team sales. They get negotiated for months. Sometimes like this just joseph cy who just bought the nets <hes> from mekelle procure off that was negotiated of course of years okay because he became a part owner that flow. She's gotta do the deal in ten days or skipper. Take with ten or twelve days something like that. <hes> so now tell the story of when there's people putting bids inch shell he's got a middleman lawyers taking the beds but then but then what happens they everyone's coming on number oprah oprah ones by the team and david geffen wants to buy the team and it was like the a bids and the money was astronomical and there are those who have suggested that maybe that was part of the plan that that was part of the design like make them public to drive up the public short amount of short amount of time so you have a distressed asset but it's a very valuable distress asset. This is a team in los angeles. There's really thirty beachfront properties in the n._b._a. This is some great beachfront property. This is this is l._a. And there's not a whole condition of like it's gotta that'd be sold before this n._b._a. Board of governors meeting on june third so they have twelve days to sell the team and if they can't do it then the board of governors are gonna vote to sell the team. We're going to be tied right up in litigation for years. It's gonna probably who knows who knows what we get you next like. I don't know if the players would come back. I i there's a lot of people were saying like might just disband the team like what would we do have been having but like this was like we were totally unchartered territory because donald tie things up in court forever but i think the thing is like yeah. I don't think these buyers were getting to her. These offers were getting to her but steve balmer so her phone number steve bommer like shelley's kind of a night owl so she's she's out in malibu and steve bomber. <hes> calls her up at seven o'clock on a friday morning and like totally wakes up and he's like hi. My name is steve ballmer and the clippers and hold on hold on this one right here second by the way shelley's this is not what shelly extorting told this story on the podcast yeah. This is from her memory. <hes> you're going to buy the clippers and you just call up the owner and say i want to buy the clippers. That sounds basic. It sounds like how you try to buy a used car. That sounds like steve. Do you just get right to the point right. Go for it yeah and she knows what he wants right and he got our phone number and he probably probably on like five cups of coffee by that point. Damn yeah totally yeah. You're right or a microphone and then she doesn't know who it is because she's like groggy and sleepy. She thought it was steve. Bomber like bomber bomber. She calls it a friend of hers and she's like as as i just got a call from steve bomber and she's like it's not bomber bomber balls and he's microsoft. There's like twenty billion dollars and oh okay and they end up going to i think nobu she she took all the meetings at nobu she would go out to dinner yeah and and <hes> ballmer just really charmed her and she really trusted him and i think one of the biggest things for her when she was deciding who she was going to sell the team to was not just the money although that was obviously important but she wanted to go to one person because her donald had been family ownership and she wanted she didn't consortium. She didn't wanna multiple owners. She wanted like one person cleaned. Quick sale and i mean it's not like about the cash bid the negotiation. This was the negotiation was she's like she wanted to billion billion. She said he goes well. How much do you want said two billion now. We've had three teams sulfur over two billion now but at that time though but the bucks had just sold old for what ramona's six hundred million five hundred fifty million okay now i realize the bucks not the clippers but we're just a just a frame it and what the net sold with barclays right. They were different transactions yet. Don't pay attention to that <hes> so the <hes> just the clippers. You're not buying any property that the sterling's actually still own the clippers this practice facility yeah that that that really nice to imply vista so all the renovation work. That's been done there. This summer boehmer's been paying for it but it's still owned by the sterling's interesting okay so only sold the team all right so so he off so she says two billion which again is a crazy number at the time it's it's a ridiculous overpay a three and a half times the last franchise just sold right and forbes valued dammit less than a month less than a billion right okay so she says two billion and he says what's his counter-offer one point nine so that's a funny thing. That's hilarious yeah. That's just like well. You never take the first offer right. You know you know but one point nine. It's like the price is right. I'm gonna come right under the number right son. Go shooting position <hes> so she says no. I want to so he he greece to to like right. There and it's one the team he just lost on the on the king and the other thing was there was all these bidders and i remember like reading these bidders and they're they're putting their bids together and they're trying to determine how much to offer okay with our accounts. We've decided to offer one point four seven five six billion. You know bombers like i'm just coming over the top and and the other thing that you described in this podcast was donald's meeting with bomber is donald sterling before he sold was his team here at least half of his team. He met with them. This podcast that i just find amazing ramona. What was that conversation so obvious samantha who was donald's lawyer <hes> and donald had one lawyers name's max bleacher. He was like this eighty year old guy who had represented him when he moved the team from los angeles but let this guy named bob assuming he was like he. He's like a real lawyer. Max is a good lawyer like a while ago but you know it was. Let's say he was not in his prime. Okay and things happened so quickly in this case like by the time so many comes on. It's like everything's already done. It's like you know he was still interviewing for the job like two weeks. After the tapes come on it's like too late already so many comes in and he's just triaging you know you just trying to give them some real representation triage whenever and in the middle of the trial while he that he arranges a meeting between bomber and sterling at stirling's house over in beverly hills and he bobby said it was a couple of hours long and i. I don't know if they were just trying to get sterling subtle. I think that that was my guess and that's kind of inference there because it was pretty clear. Sterling was gonna lose in the court case and the sooner. He says he goes donald asked him. Do you really have two billion dollars as an and then. He looked like he didn't quite know who he was and he goes okay. I got it and he got real. Close the sale and on a goes well. That's the stupidest thing i ever heard right. This is what i love and that's why you got two billion dollars in cash. He goes needs said you have two billion dollars in cash and he goes yeah. I got it yeah and then donald said well donald. That's stupid ever heard because you've got two billion in cash be like investing. I mean like donald a real estate guy you would never he would never have rush you. Go buy something and how that appreciate and so when you take you take the money and you let it appreciate and and then you claim depreciation on your taxes price pretty good game. That's right pretty realistic. I i just like i just like the story about how like st bomber has two billion dollars in your stupid and bobby has this great line about it being a changing of the guard hard right because we've seen this in the n._b._a.

You guys both live here this year in l._a. Is going to be it's going to be by the way co. I have his <hes> his braids engineer. Do you have his hair <music> out braids in. I was a little disappointed back in yeah so i was other event were donated a million backpacks <hes> <hes> to schools all over southern california and he announced it <hes> with a <hes> with a nonprofit and so there were a couple of actresses. They're like um condition now and busy phillips and so he spoke really briefly reading from something and he could barely hear him talking into the mike now now. He was taller than the mike but he was so shy and like later. I talked to jim hill. The esteemed jim hill. Jim hill was like to the t._v. Personality here. He's like wow. This is really shy that manage shy you could tell and he went to go talk to a class and then he was out the door and gone on like we saw him walking. He was gone well. That's that's who he is. I mean kawhi is his co. I i mean it's like like it's going to change because he came to l._a. I mean he you know earlier. In the morning he went stopped by his old elementary school and talk to kids and everything and he's you know he's trying to reestablish his roots again in southern california <hes> i think it's a really good thing they have paul george on the team because so much of that public facing role roll off of shoulders co i can just go play basketball and he has totally allow redid everything johnson award winner like every yeah. I think one of the interesting things about the clippers is going to be when the season gets going and we when we were going to do. We're going to judge them. I think they're going to be great. Team has never played with if a guy like paul george. This is a pretty gigantic departure for him. Because in san antonio it was a system based operation and in last here in in <hes> in toronto he was at the center of the universe <hes>. He's never had a sort of a star to share with. I mean yes tim duncan. Yes john nobly but there was all about the system there <hes> so it's a <hes> it's gonna be like just you know my experience being around these. It's new create super teams like i really do expect. It's going to be a challenge in the clippers have a bunch of travel in the preseason. They're they're. They're doing a training camp in hawaii which is beautiful the full then they're going to japan but i don't know if that's going to be good or bad or they're not gonna. I think the rockets rockets. I'm sorry strike. Doc does want to go to japan but not this year. Maybe in the future well. We won't be going again because the reason they're going well. I say her the reason going to be head of the olympics yeah <hes> but yet to go all right that works out of a better are my my. My brain was right on that but i just i just think that the clippers i'm gonna try to temper expectations coming out of the gate. Really i sort of feel a little bit differently about the lakers. Curse the lakers schedule. Ramona is so favourable in their first twenty or twenty four games almost like it's setup that but brian kinda likes to ease into seasons. I think they gotta have the gas down from the start. I understand why lebron used to play that way because he was thinking in about june. I don't know why would care about a three game losing streak in november but with this title the west is going to be i in my my mind. Especially the lakers i fourteen i fourteen games are really the first fourteen or at home ten or at home but it really ten because one one of them is in staples right. The clippers quote unquote road game and most of those games are affecting the other four road games. They have only one of those teams had a <hes> had a the <hes> made the playoffs. I will argue against what you think that the lakers everybody thinks the lakers are gonna get off to a quick start and yes lebron. James is going to be motivated. He hasn't played an entire postseason along time where he's just had time off but this team has a lot of new parts again for the second straight year. Okay i know oh that they're going to china in our coaching staff. They have a whole new coach even know each other. I know and yet. I still think they've got like here's the thing we've talked. Doc buds before on this podcast. The lakers schedule is is a football season schedule that means all of their games generally all their big tough games backloaded after football seasons so especially till christmas. The lakers scheduled towards christmas is very favorable. They've got it in my mind that fourteen in games. Let's just assume they anthony davis and lebron healthy. It's gotta be ten and four wins yeah. They got a they like. I know that this sounds so naive to me to say oh the november and december matter in the n._b._a. For the lakers this year i think it matters they gotta get plus. You don't want the pressure to be on vogel right. How many clicks lebron gotten off to under a new coach silence. That's all i'm saying and here's and you one hundred percent right if the lakers are five hundred after thanksgiving and you know how much heat is on frank vogel especially we you don't see lebron talking to frank vogel. What's your impression frank so far. I think he's a great guy and i think so far from what we've seen has interaction with the bron- in the very very small snippets. We're seeing at these little workouts and things like that. It looks good. It looks like franken invested in supporting yes. He came aimed his press conference. He's come to other things he's been. He's bent. He came to <hes> then the lakers have like a workout or something and he came spring training summer a week practice he came lebron has been more present in a summer with a coach the nato. It's hard not to like frank. Frank is very personal and lebron does have whatever report frankly plato. The plan may times. I think that's going to try to make a go of it. That's i know some broken record here. July and august lebron are not january february brian he can have all the best intentions in the world it not any sort of conspiracy and he just the the the switches and the competitor comes out and he can turn us back on you lickety-split like wendy. They have a stretch. I think at the end of november early december eight of nine games on the road. It's it is a tough tough stretch and these are the type stretches that like if this team is learning each other other and still having a rocky start. Those are the type of stretches that just like they pressure star search. I remember like dockers used to use this analogy before for like early. Season wins like putting money in the bank. You just you know yes. They don't judge a team december first and say whether they're going to be championship team although historically stoically teams get off to a good start typically championship teams <hes> and you put those in the bank so that when you hit that eight out of nine on the road or you hit that were you know. Lebron's lebron's got turned ankle or anthony. Davis got a sore knee or something like that and you lose four out of five or five eight you withdraw from that the lakers we'll have to put some wins in the last years lakers team did not hit his stride until christmas day in golden state but then lebron got hurt and rondo got hurt that night and everything collapsed after that the reason why i would make the argument of using the clippers. You don't know how fast of how fast start clippers will get. I actually would argue the opposite. I know paul. George is going to be hurt naming expecting acting paul george early on but that team has chemistry already. They have the best bench in the league. They have doc rivers and a staff. They added tai lue. They have continuity even though they are adding in a superstar but that's superstars game seems tailor-made to that team already. That's why i think the clippers are going to get off to a cook. It starts in the lakers. I really early like with the clippers have just in the sense that they have this team that pushed the warriors six games in the first round look great they play. They play hard. They hustle the only question i have and and i think this is a good problem to have is. The clippers had one of the most deadly combinations in the league last year with that pick and roll with lou williams and mantras herro home. I got got it took down the warriors a couple of times and scared them. A couple of what is what happens to that now and it's fantastic have okay. I mean my assumption function would be that they will get their little segment of the game to play that way yeah because they knew last year when they put that crew on their that was their advantage. Their advantage was their second unit was going to destroy the other team's second so to me. This is the same question for the lakers who is going to be the third guy. <hes> i know coups methinks he's. He's going to be the third guy and maybe he will be. I'm not there on kaku. How could he not be the third guy who else could be danny green. Almost i'm not saying he's not he's not slotted into it. I'm saying can he be that guy. I think coups can score of anybody the only score anytime he wants the only thing is you know he was. He was actually pretty good at adapting his game to what he needed to do. Last year <hes> other people needed like the ball in the hands all the time like i think that was harder on ingram ingram and lonzo winning lebron had the ball so i think coups plays awful lebron fairly well. I think he's mature. I think he knows what he's the reason why he's still there cracked however however <hes> the rest of was game is the part that that is the question is. Can he play defense at this level. Is he going to be a guy that can create his own shot. <hes> ashok thirty percent from three just like i know he's working now. I know i know that's your your points. While taking can he be the third guy uh-huh because otherwise pretty soon they're. They're gonna pay me. This entire western conference season is who's got. The third guy like is yuka utah okay. They've got go bear and <hes> donovan. Donovan is is is mike conley. The third guy will be the third guy free. Damn good third guy yeah right. That's why people people are excited about them. You know denver okay. They've got yogesh murray. They got your mama. Who's going to be the third guy and is it going to be gary. Hair is going to be somebody else. You look at portland mccollum damian. Who's the third guy you look at you. Look at the the the warriors will the ngelo russell fill in the shoes of klay thompson and then is that third guy is his dream on you know who's the third guy that to me is is the story. The western conference sounds like a sitcom and i'm looking at. I'm looking at the lakers and they have a classic classic case of that acoust- argue that he shot thirty percent from three last year sure didn't shoot the ball very well so average eighteen points almost twenty points. I don't care about the points per game average. I care about efficiency. This is not two thousand one you know he can just be like pop and don't focus on the plus minus. I think plop is aware of the plus. My point was he's not gonna take any one off game which but coups defensively really is an issue frank vogel said this when i asked frank vogel specifically like hey can you see coups potentially being that third guy the first thing vogel mentioned was defense and he said we know he's an effort guy and we can we can work with that first and foremost for young guys. He shows the effort and he goes. We can work with that. Coups says even if he doesn't make team u._s._a. He's already become a better defender because he's been in these pop practices and he's been going up against guys who are playing way harder than say your normal pickup game. During the summertime i mean they experimented with them a little bit and knowing that the exhibition game they put him at center and we've seen in in some of those u._s._a. Practices coups get sealed off inside the paint real quick and that guy was score pretty easy. That's not who he is yeah. The lakers have mismatched a little in this match roster there. They have two of the best big men. I mean i'll pull the brandon is a sort of a big man guy. You can play inside to the best we've ever seen the league but they don't wanna play that position by the way the one defend that position. I think you have hit it on the dot windy with this injury to demarcus arcus cousins depending obviously than go out and get another big. We don't know who's gonna be dwight. Howard's body may not be there mentally. He may not be there as well. Joke him noah same thing with his body. Me strobe showed some flashes at the end of last season even if they go get a young guy. Let's say tyler zeller type or something like that. I think lebron is going to have to play some center this year and i think there's gonna be some convincing. The lakers are gonna just be like forget about the number five forget about the positions. There's just going to have to be sacrificed from guys whether it be kouzmin things like that. I know you're shaking your head head right now. 'cause anthony davis isn't even like playing center but i think at sometimes they're going to have to look at that. I think you can probably get away with that in certain individual social situations. I don't think you can ask them to do that. On any regular basis they just won't do it especially if they don't get somebody who they can use as a big body or let's say they ended up using one of their roster spot on say like carmelo. You know i'm sorry what i think i i. I think i think carmelo is he is. His name is being mentioned well they would be. I'm not saying they're going to do it. That would be in ramona. Don't you think dwight howard to lakers is just insane. Yes i use that word but okay. It's all right. I it would be very surprised if that ends off what you think they need. Yes and what about carmelo. I feel like that's. I don't hate that as much as the dwight idea okay. I guess i can agree with that. <hes> that's a sentence okay <hes>. That's the only way i don't. I don't watch the okay l. Go the reason the the dwayne idea. I just think there's too much history here and while he could be helpful to them. I don't know how much you can play really in the one thing that you need after this boogie injury jerry is somebody who's gonna stay healthy and you can count on depend on. I don't know maybe i'm showing you depend on him. I mean he might high risk reward. I suppose but he's been hurt so much like mainly. I think another big injury risk. Maybe i'm showing my age here. Just have this parade of guys over. The hill under lebron teams teams over the years. They never work out. Never i can't tell you the amount of like thirty five to thirty eight year roads that have come onto the end of lebron's teams benches over the last ten years. I can give you the parade of names. I'm not gonna be they. They range from shack. You know to eric damp here <hes> to tyson chandler you know and it just doesn't work. It's just like you've got to have a guy who can help you there. I see it happen over and over and over like even lebron even weighed aide coming to the cavs. Even the weight has some stuff left in the tank. It was a bad idea. It didn't work it just you've you need a role playing young guy who wants to just and there are people there veterans who can fit that kind of like. I think you bring a guy like let's say jamal crawford. A good personality doesn't need to take over could do something like this. I mean i liked you all but i know the guy. No old guys know old guy yeah. I'm gonna play this by the way that apply to that applies a mellow. Yes no old guys they. They need. They need look. I think of carmelo was going to be a laker. He would have been a laker many times over. I think that doesn't it seem that opportu last year when they don't have anything left at to play before they could've added him and they chose not to right so. I definitely think there's wanted to do right by him. If you're a lebron and right by your friend and just give them a thrown a lifeline so we can play for the lakers and rehabilitate his image in his career. That would have been the time to do it well now. They can do because a demarcus but there but i think the reason why hasn't happened is because there's there's some pushback in the lakers organization as there should be. I mean like bibi jerry stackhouse <hes> would you hold that roster spot for equal the dow jamaal magloire yeah it is not the same type of players those kind of it was still very vibrant in the league last year even though as ages ages of their <hes> no man i just you gotta get you gotta get a real but they need another big because you can't. You can't anthony davis allah. Allah is a is a separate issue you dollar if you can get freaking. Take him and then you worry about your by kinda. Kinda like the real melancholy thing to me is i did. The lakers are gonna have to offload boogie. They're they're going to have to cut them out right now. He's not cold not today but at some point they're going to need the roster spot there that are gonna come al right or they're going to try to trade him. He's got three and a half million on his salary. He actually has some value in a trade balance but i don't like. I'm sorry they're gonna probably have the say goodbye to boogie like he. Literally may not be around the team. That's crazy which is what happened like andrew bogut signing with lebrons kathy and broke his leg and i know that bogut had a few minutes last. You're bum. You're saying like these were like the guys were saying like it's crazy. I mean there's a lot of guys like there's no shortage of available centers. I mean i could just go down a little marching cortott julia. There's there's plenty of guys out there by the way i don't even i i remember watching him toward the end with john wall wall and i felt like he couldn't move well. Tie is a little bit tots a little bit better than i wouldn't hate the you know like tyson chandler tyson tyson great locker room but i think physically nobody has. Nobody has a bad thing to say about tyson chandler taylor but <hes> his body just tried lying tried so hard. I know people are talking about joe kim no i. I know that joe kim. Noah had a bright spot too with the with the grizzlies last year but you need a guy who can play fifteen twenty minutes every night or every other night. I don't know if joking they just look i. I guess i could be wrong but i just i i just i just don't i can't i can't i just can't do can't spend any more time on this but you you know with you on the idea that you don't wanna have players with a ton of baggage coming because it usually doesn't end well. I would say go that not every single. One of those players should fall into the same category. That's a fair thing to say. You know. I i mean tis carter. You know he gets job every wouldn't want them to sign this carter either with all the respect to events relationship with i'm just being honest <hes> well anyway i mean it's a it's a terrible blow and both here's the thing here's a here's the thing that you know i think fans actually thought the book was like an average twenty five and ten feel lakers this year that was that what he was going to do but he but he could have helped them he could have helped them when a handful of games yep and he can get them doubles ninety might not <hes> he might have been a defensive liability but you know on nights and anthony davis rest. You had demarcus cousins. I know i <hes> you know he's. I know he hasn't always made the best decisions but i i don't have a bad thing to say about him and i feel i feel bad that this went down this way and i feel bad that they're probably going to have to cut them and he wanted to be around the team at some point the cold business right and and you call the lakers hold if they had to do that. It's just they they literally will need the roster spot. He's getting a paid three million but <hes> all right well ramona. Thank you for spending some time with us and your busy very busy. Are you tired of the ad and every on stephen a smith show and he was like how you doing man. I've been on it as many shows as your.

[150] Playoffs, Luke Kuechly retires, rookies get recognized

"Condemn water on the Goddamn Huddle. I'll tell you when you're gonNA water break. Welcome to the buccaneers observer. PODCAST this this around. I'm Ali Bay is January. Fifteen twenty twenty. Been Awhile few days. Let whole ongoing Ralph is hibernating donating September fact checks followups was Carson Palmer with Bruce Arians the entire time. Ba was was in Arizona and the answer is yes. He started all sixteen games in two thousand thirteen. He started six in two thousand fourteen. He ended the season on on injured reserve. He's started sixteen games in Twenty Fifteen fifteen and two thousand sixteen and seven and two thousand seventeen. He ended the season on injured. under-reserved that year to follow up. What was our wind? Lost the last eight games of the season. We went five and three man. We should have won that last game Atlanta so picks fix okay but we let them come back too. Said there's I got the winston interception video in the works. I've got them all cut up and everything. I'm actually kind of surprise. I was thinking there was going to be more of wisdom getting hit Receivers receivers dropping the ball and stuff like that. But now the vast majority of them are just he'll make dumb decisions vast majority. Oh that's not Terry Bradshaw said in the Peter caussed announced that he makes them dumb decisions but he wouldn't trade it and he terry from that he's allowed interceptions too and it was kind of the same thing like when you are throwing at leg in in the middle of the Thri you're like wow I really should not have thrown out. One Way. He throws so many passes in tight windows and he's he's used to throwing own up a lot of passes that are just fifty fifty balls anyhow Odds are when you do that. You're going to get a lot of interceptions but a lot of them were just you know what do you think. I think I'm a thirty. I'd say seventeen eighteen of them were just don't decisions or bad. Decisions are half follow-up Steve Bomber was the CEO of Microsoft and is the owner of the La Clippers. Well okay so he was both. Yeah Yeah Yeah they tap. I reminded me of the Steve Bomber when he came out from the press conference for rule. You don't even watch the NBA. How do you now you just thumbing? You see these this clip so st bomber Giovanni. He's got he's never been married. Doesn't have kids so he's like a big kid and he's got his house. I if I'm correct this'll be follow. Shut Your Pie hole right now. Oversees Seattle Stadium. And he's got. It's it's like a big showroom of his collectible he's got Jimi Hendrix's guitar yeah. I remember that it's the same guy. Thank well now. I Steve Bomber owns the La Clippers. Didn't die he's the Microsoft done. Yeah I'm looking at right now so I don't have to do a follow up on this one and you're thinking of Paul Allen who was co founder of Microsoft an owned the Seattle seahawks until he died you guys look can't tell them apart follow-up Eddy izard. Santa that you're thinking was dressed to kill hell. Yeah one of my favorite standards. Good stand up. He's Funny Guy Quirky he was. He's in a lot of a lot of movies as bit parts. But I think it's an acting career forever got off the ground and some other stand ups. I've seen with him. They just weren't that good but dressed to kill is really good thought there. My top topped him. I like my standup foul-up Ola. Kellen winslow junior. We asked how long he was sentenced to. This is crazy. 'cause we went over this story in depth multiple times just goes to show how easy Vienna's to forget everything. He pled guilty to sexual assault charges. And the deal could result up to eighteen years in prison. Rather are they in a life sentence. He's being retried on H. He was being retried on charges spanning sixteen years and stemming from five five accusers. He pled guilty to two of them raping unconscious victim and felony a sexual battery. If he had been tried and convicted victim. All charges he could face life in prison but the plea agreement sets his sentenced to twelve to eighteen years and he hadn't been sentenced yet. The last update was in November. Okay so he's still sitting there waiting to be sentenced. We got some news this week. Brenston Button Buckner when the raiders. The buccaneers former defensive line coach and he was defensive line coach. The raiders was fired by Jon. Gruden why was he fired because he you did a good job with the defensive line it went from like twenty seven th and run stopping the eighth and about the same with their pass rush to. I have no idea. I'm going to guess that had more to do with Jon Gruden than it did with Brenston buckner much. I have no information back that up. We got a big league announcement today. That luke equally is retiring a crazy. I can't believe that he's not even thirty yet. He's still young book tomatoes in the League. It He's twenty eight and he's just like you know I just don't have it anymore. I just don't WanNa do. It rewrote. He got the concussion got knocked. It was on the field crying that was crazy. He could tell uncontrollable That's probably what he's got. PTSD from the one concussion. Did he give a reason why he retired now. He probably will in his retirement speech. Well he did like a three minute video that panthers posted and he just said that he loves the game but it's just he can't do it anymore. Kinda like Andrew Luck. It was the same thing but with the injury. He had all the injuries as well. That's really GonNa Kurt Panthers. I mean it's a complete rebuild and he was their defensive leader. I guess they're just going to have to rely on Gerald McCoy. Just just kidding on one year deal so remains to be seen whether he'll be back. Yeah so I mean who else do they have on the team. That's like a later right. Ben There you figure you got a new coach. You need a little bit of continuity even through all the rebuild. You would like to have it. They got Mario Addison. Addison Bernard Butler air greed. And then who was it. They got hurt defense along Guy Don Cherry POW the nobody keithly. Yeah I mean that's once in a lifetime player that's crazy to me as he had the potential to be one of the best whole revere. Yeah I mean I guess he could still be but I mean he's just cut in his career shore he didn't go out on top that's for sure bottom of the division contenders jinx for us. Yeah and someone pointed out. Maybe David won't get a little more law was let's keithly out Atlanta Vision. That's true but they always been his shadow. The League Sameer didn't yes. They were both drafted in two thousand. Twelve David it was drafted. The second round he was the fifty eighth overall pick. Lucchini was drafted in the first round. He was the ninth overall. Pick so there you go. He had that Knack for reading reading the play. They said he was film. Junkie in the film room all the time and would sniff out plays thank God. We don't have to deal with that anymore now l.. Hopefully McCaffrey will retire. Maybe Greg Olson to Greg offline definitely I think definitely thank. You won't retire interested to see what happens at the new coach and Cam and all that mouse. We're looking at a new Carolina Panthers Football Team I know and it's already starting out pretty fine and the offseason. They got some good drama. I wonder if Keith will go and do an announcing job probably not kind of soft spoken. He probably just wants to go into the woods and fish. They wouldn't you do that though. It's like what you always say with players being injured like you get paid you make millions of dollars and all of a sudden. It's like I don't want to go out there and do this hard crap and get hurt and you know. I'd rather be at home in my pool. All her COVI- yeah driving my cool car kids then on any of them there. Well you know there are some people you know if you drop them on an island they would spend their whole life. Cut Down every tree on the island is for something to do. You know there's people that just like to just do stuff. He might be one of those guys. Football is stuff. Yeah it would be really hard for me to go out there and work that hard. Put myself that much risk on a continual basis. Especially once you make you know. Fifty million hundred million. What's another? Let's the ten million you know you can live very comfortably off sixty million for the rest of your life very comfortably and these guys none of these guys. That retired ever have to worry about money because I get a job anywhere just being a spokesperson just because they played him. NFL that movie Curtis American Hero. I thought that was a really good depiction the picture fictional course but based on a true story right can't remember very good depiction of what happens to these guys after they retire when their whole all purpose has been football and then all of a sudden it's not right right and they they end up spending the rest of their lives sitting around talking about football but the glory days have you ever ever met a former football player or someone who's ever even sniffed the NFL. Immediately tell you hey. Hey you know how you know. Somebody's vegans don't worry they'll tell you two minutes we'll tell you I mean I can't blame him more than I've ever done in my life so oh I'm sure I'd be talking to people that talk about meeting people in NFL. Oh Yeah my family. They knew Johnny United talk about like our claimed everybody in your family. Somebody that knew somebody. I never met him. I think he might have been dead by the time I was born but everybody in your family has a Johnny United Story. I don't think he was dead Malone was born and never met him he died in two thousand and two. Yeah I definitely was born on the same man. I really robbing the cradle right. We got Devon White and Sean Murphy bumping were named to the NFL all rookie team about that have awesome. That is awesome Murphy Bunting Doll Rookie team and has got his show again. Just how. Well the media's intertwined in everything. The all rookie team has voted on by the pro football writers of America the PF Waso. It's all some association. He paid his Taylor. Put it in your resume. And they they just vote on whoever. I'm sure somebody like our Kaufman or somebody is probably a member of the PF. W and and he put in Devon White Sean Murphy Bonding never like really. He really came on towards the end of the year. You know. After he got hurt he was out. Games got hurt after that. He didn't play too well for for two or three games but then he clipped man he he started the playmaker so good for them. I'm glad they got some recommended recognition. And maybe Eh. Jason Light should get a little bit of credit people just as Maj was his draft. Everyone's going to say it was be what Emmer works. Jason Light makes the phone call right. Oh and the Atlanta Falcons are getting new uniforms year ruler. Yeah we have a picture of them not yet. We got a teaser trailer. Basically I think they should have Donald Duck on the side of the game changer. Uniform colors the blue and white yellow. Be Out there and McDonald Douglas. I would everything's GonNa take allow and everything. They've changed throughout the years but they've always stuck with you know the main theme it's more black now. Used to be red and white. Yeah one of them. We're GONNA GIVE NEW UNIFORM J. Taiwa I love award mark. Offset this on this podcast. GAZILLION times of Network Mark to me is just a piece of art I love it but what might get tattooed on her back to me. The looks Nice. The helmets fantastic. Nick I have seen crown. Yeah the crowd I have seen version where instead of having the flag and skull on the helmet. It's just the skull with the swords awards. I like that too. I was like that's pretty cool so I could deal with that but I do like the how they enlarge to flag they modernized it. More Sharper Lines got rid of the column over over with the skull. Maybe Michael Moore fears. I really really really really liked the new logo And I like the word Mark Uniform Design you know as far as the pattern goes on an actual clothing see great but the numbers gotta go gotTa go. I don't mind the reflective coloring adult bother me too bad but it's just the alarm clock in is really really hard to read. This is from a selfish and a practical view always practical for watching watching the film. It's really hard to read the numbers you know when you were looking at the coaches fill the numbers on the shoulder pads can't read them at all at all and numbers on the front earn back. It's really hard to read them. Especially if the circuit bunched up a little better so yes the uniform pro from head down. Let's change that Ahead Okita keep that mark. I love that word. My guys a hate though. The buccaneers word mark hand from the mid nineties till we changed his to this new word. Mark always hated that thing like clip art clip art So they did a great job with that. It can't get everything right but it'd be nice. It'd be nice to see a little bit of a change. I don't want to go back to orange. I've seen a lot of people saying that. Let's go back to the throwbacks outta mind. Having a throwback uniform every now and then but as far as permanent now don't want that Sherbert man I like server what rides are famer colors red black so you know. Let's keep them colors. You wanted to look at Alcan's fan you you you already like. Julio player my favorite player But you want. The uniforms wanted to look fierce and intimidating. I think the League's getting too far away from intimidating uniforms. The other kind of all go into that college at Arena Football Eagle. XFL's coming out a couple of weeks. Yeah and speaking of which Mark Cook is going to be their in house. PA announcing the press box for the media and helping on Game Day road. Congratulations salaciously hallmark. Cook is the guys from Pew Report. Sal congratulations for his new role. Good job who get paid lots of money for it sat a part-time spring Gig so good exposure anyway. The buccaneers released some key dates. So let's run through those real quick February twenty four aren't through March second. Is the NFL scouting combine. So that's the next big thing. The end of next month got about six weeks to that March tenth. Claude awed offseason March ten. We've got the franchise tag deadline March. Eighteenth interesting yeah. March eighteenth eighteenth. That's the twenty twenty league year. The beginning of that and free agency begins so march. Eighteenth marked on your calendar March twenty ninth through April roll. I is the annual lead meeting. Maybe we'll hear from being there. I don't know April. Seventeenth is the deadline for restricted. Free Free agents to sign offer sheets with their current team and then April twentieth is when clubs with returning head coaches. They begin offseason workouts to the week later than new head coaching. Yeah and then April Twenty th through the twenty fifth is the draft House address. You know maybe meeting to start getting into the draft or something because it would make awesome. We'll do all these mock drafts. I really can't stand those neither guessing. It'd be different if there was some skin in the game like if it was like fantasy football where you know you had your mock drafts. And he said had it in his one depending on how many you got right. You have competition. I could get into it. Maybe but all the speculation and they're never right there never normally after the the first three picks it's chaos after that I mean like look what happened last year when we took all these defensive baths like right in a row and everyone had a meltdown until until about November when they started clicking and then. Everyone Kinda quieted down about. Those bazaar are picks. Yeah they're upset. We didn't get a pass rusher in we end up with the best pass rusher in the league this and we do who like watching the draft especially the draft being. We watched the first and the second picked high then. We're usually not to drop usually. We're picking twelve fifteen. Were with an four. Okay let's look that minimize these fact checks. I now a fourteenth you were correct. What for so? We'll probably be pretty drunk. Yeah I mean that'll be at like eleven I'll L. definitely be asleep at the white. I have no idea. I mean we don't really need any body. Of course you know we always say offensive line. It never hurts to draft offense lineman. You know it those guys in getting ready but I I don't see any need we have so it's a crapshoot also all depends on whether we keep Jayme is. Yeah so I think free agency has more of an impact on the team for us and the draft especially this year last year. He was the other way around. When we didn't have any money for free agency Yoursel it was all about the draft? Yeah our whole secondary was about the address. Does what thing I really do like about. This team is that we're very homegrown. You know we don't have a lot of free agents on this team relatively. We've we've got a lot of starting guys that we've drafted in Davis Winston my Gavin's more pet Smith Kappa Demar Dotson. Rachel Payne Barber. Do we drive them. UNDRAFTED undrafted free agent. Two Thousand Sixteen. So then you know we got Golden Godwin everybody in our secondary. Just yeah yeah Devante David Devon. Why did I like that? That's what I like. I like having homegrown teams. I don't like a bunch of mercenaries free agents. You know that way you can. The the team is more likely to stay together longer. And you get to build a bond with these guys you know when you've got teams that are constantly flipping out trading is is now that you just don't get the cohesion. Yeah in the fan base doesn't get a chance to really get behind on you know these one year guys to your guys. It's a mentality. I don't like that win now mentality that you get what free agents to try to win this year again. It's fantasy football fantasy football's who else mentality and plus get sick and tired of having to figure out guys numbers and names every year snow in the real reason Selfish Okay I WANNA talk about the offensive line and the run game. We've touched on. I think every week since the season end in but friend of the show long-suffering suffering bucks fan on twitter tweeted watching the forty niners and cheese. Just makes me sad sad that the bucks of zero creativity in our run game. Y Why can anyone answer so I thought that as a perfect Ralph question and we'll Gosh could have given me some notice before you were fun. Find when the blindsided adopted the blocking bucking one hundred percent and it seemed like it really fell off as the season went on like early Liane. We were phenomenal in the run blocking very good run blocking upfront. But then you know and we do a lot of we block with are tied ends. We do a lot of passion aftertaste blocking with our running backs we use blockers in unusual ways. You know we we. We Bring Chris God within have him block. We'll have mike ever get louder locker. Yeah Chris got the size. He's he's tenacious. So you know we got a we use a lot of guys to block other than just offensive live in the run game and they're just not that good at it yet you know. I don't know if it's the the way they're being coached or whatever but you know like OJ Howard. He just does not seem to be into to the blocking aspect of it. He has no problem whatsoever with Linton Geiger right by you know what I mean. It's not like he's not trying but he's not giving a whole lot of effort and that's all tanks especially in the running game. These guys screwed up and you know your ears tackled. Behind the line of scrimmage and that happened lost quite a bit not not as bad as it has been previously guys seriously. Getting tackled monologue scrimmage. But you know they get up to the line of scrimmage or a little beyond and it's just a wall you know bodies and they I just can't go anywhere that's what I would say is the EU watch if you watch the Baltimore Ravens You Really Watch it on all twenty two to see the the full view of it but you watch the Baltimore Ravens and out even though the forty niners in there You know when they block there guys their offense of line is getting serious push and they're opening hoping hugh tolls. You know. We weren't doing that you know we're basically just getting on our guy and staying in there and hoping that the runner can find a place to squeeze through. And then you've got doc coming in from the edge from our titans block and correctly and they were getting beat or whatever so yeah I one hundred percents I. It was the blocking. I wouldn't say it was a scheme I would. That sounds a running backs. Although are running backs we'll say this. They like contact in Ronald Jones towards the end of the year. He was getting more shifty trying to avoid people a little bit. Yeah paint. Barbara doesn't do that at all Barbara. He sees her over. I can't tell you how many times I saw where he would have an open field. There'd be one guy in front of him and he would run straight straight-forward that instead of childhood Juki shifty like roundout we just don't have the feet will Rokos was doing it too. But then towards the end of the year Eve's they don't allow the some of those big run he had towards the end of the year word all hill. You know wasn't like we were opening up huge. All I got you WanNa see good run block and watch the Baltimore Ravens Savings. I mean those guys. They just knew how to blog. They didn't in the playoffs. I can't believe to diseases. Woke up on. It was a Tennessee. Yeah beatdown epic such agape. And now I'm rooting for Tennessee. Okay I don't WanNa talk about the run game in the quarterback Iraq was for BA advocates for a balanced approach. He's he really believes in it passing running and he's at fifty fifty they gotta be equal. Wall are nearly equal as we go as they can be. You have to have both to have a successful offense so I wanted to see if his his theory translates to his scheme or his results. Let's put it that way. And so I went and looked at his tenure at Arizona to see how his rush defense ranked compared to his. I mean his rush offense ranked compared to his path offense and and unsurprisingly his run offenses were not great and his past offenses words in twenty twenty thirteen. His run offense was ranked twenty third in the League and the pass offense was thirteenth twenty fourteen now Carson Palmer did and this season on I are in this year but in twenty fourteen. Their offense was thirty first and their path. Offense was fourteenth. Twenty fifteen was the exception exception. This the exception their offense ranked eighth David Johnson's big your and their path offense ranked second so they had a top opt-in offense in both regards. Those either went to the NFC championship Muslim. In two thousand fifteen now Zia the year two thousand fifteen season. Yeah that's the that's already in twenty sixteen. They're run offense ranked eighteenth path offense ranked knocked in two thousand seventeen again Carson Palmer homer ends this year on the run offense ranked thirtieth in the past offense ranked fifteenth so in all but one one year they were in the bottom of the league for running but every single year they were in the top half of the League for passing so I think theoretically be I probably believes in having a solid run game but his scheme gets better results. ooh What the past you could tell watching the games that the running is really just secondary for us it. It's not a priority and if you think about it it was the same way with dirt Cutter Dirk Koetter brings and Dan Roggio Peyton Barber Donovan. Smith Alamar Pat Ryan. Johnson was Dirk Koetter. Alex Kappa Jameis Winston. John Without was lovey. But Dirk was there. Mike Evans and this team has been built for the past four years long before I got out here and especially with offensive Lineman as Joe Gilbert said in his press conference last season that in college the offensive linemen. I'm an art really. Blocking the way they're blocking and then it takes a long time to develop them so in kappa. Our pet and Donovan's case where they've been developed with the buccaneers that was dirk koetter developing them so in his scheme their path walking you know dirk guttered in favor of the run either her so this team has been set up for the pass and it started before I got here. You can't see US having a top ten rush offense anytime. Yeah well now. I think that's going to be what's in vogue with Derrick Henry taken as far as they have and you brought up that most of the teams in the playoffs layoffs are running teams the top four of the top five best running offenses this year made it to the playoffs whereas the passing offenses offensive did not none of the top five passing offenses is. They're crazy. How fast that flipped? I think tackling the big part of running running and it just seemed like you've heard me say this a million times we're facing for buys is really kind of ruined mentality of football fans. We WanNa to see the points we want to see the plays and all that Either running the football is not that exciting really especially. If it's just you know four five yard runs. I mean everybody loves the big you know. Twenty plus runs but most running teams. Are you know they're gonNA get four five yards the WOP and this. This is not exciting unless you're old school foam so most teams have gone to passing. It's where the points are at where the fantasy football points are at and defenses. finches are set up for that now. They're not set up to stop the run and well in the rules. Favor the path to all these roles about hitting the quarterback protecting the quarterback and then defenseless receivers and then the pass interference rules. They all really favor and they've made it difficult for the runners themselves. They can't lower their heads and tackling the big thing in the NFL. I mean the past few years. We've been absolutely atrocious. The buccaneers had been atrocious tackling. This here we were good at it. Gives a B. B. Plus most teams are just not really good at tackling anymore. And they're they're not built. Don't to stop the run in the sense of that you know if the team just keeps pounding the ball panadol powerball. These guys get tired. They get wore out and they get they get tired of tackling. They don't WanNa get hurt. Part of the kind of step out of the way a little bit at what I began year. I said whatever whatever teams figure out that runs away to go now. Because everybody's defense is set to stop the pass. They're going to do pretty good. Tennessee was a testament to that. I think because that's really all they got is there now. I don't think think that's fair to say Mariota had Derrick Henry to did he I and then Mary out against bench because they're sucking and Ryan Tanna held comes in with the same personnel and gets on to the NFC Asi Championship. But I think Tannahill it does make better decisions than Mariota Mary outages. He just made horrible horrible decisions. You know he's very athletic guy he was good at You know scrambling and stuff but as far ars making decisions down the field. He was bad at it. Tena Hills very good at it. And he's not. He's not a great quarterback. He's almost like a manager wjm manager but he he can see down the field nowhere to throw it to that tomato. A doll the differences between those two. He's not a great quarterback I don't think he he's the reason why tendencies where there is a reason why it's just that Tannahill doesn't screw up as much as Martin Marietta. I don't know I think that he will look at that offense. And that's Ryan Tannehill offense. I think he's running. That shall we say he didn't throw many passes now he had like ah yards. Yeah so I mean he's just not doing a whole lot he's just not screwing up when he does doing Doug Mariota was he just. He was hesitant. He would make bad. Add decisions he'd make bad throws and they make the stakes. Danielle doesn't seem to make that many mistakes. But if anybody can if the chiefs are anybody can stop Derrick Henry and make Tena Hill. Throw the ball and win the game. I don't think they're gonNA go far. But that's the thing nobody's been able to stop Derek. We couldn't even stop him. But that's because they were hold Desola- only I knew that was coming on now is obscene. Two Games off into line held. That much in one was at Tennessee game this year and other Washington game though you like to game let Washington Llamas holding us. All named you're so salty okay. Hey let's talk about play offs that we didn't do podcasts. After last weekend. So I do a recap the Games. What was the first one? We watched the Vikings seahawks who replied. Oh my Gosh I can't. It was so long ago and I it wasn't that fun snooze festus except for the trinity became. KFC Games again now. The Vikings played the forty niners. That's what it was okay. Vikings Forty Niners Ralph's every year surfing the web. The Vikings Forty niners that typical kind of how we expected it to go. And now we're both all of our super bowl. Picks are completely wrong. That was the last limo. He gets close teams minutes. That's true yeah all right enough fair enough. The forty niners just like a solid team in quantum Alexander made his debut since the Since his injury eight at play a whole lot but yeah I I don't even remember he'll make any plays he might have been but yeah. That was kind of a snooze fast too. It's like the Vikings really couldn't get anything going to tighten the ravens game. That was interesting to watch Justin. How crazy to woke up while I now well they did the same thing? That New England the week before that coming up for sure Baltimore was going to beat them I now they had the more Jackson flustered. He now and he was like throwing tantrums on the lie. That was not good leadership the display thought towards the game he was he had his attitude. Were I'm just GonNa win it myself. And he started doing all his running. Yeah so great runs Dan. But but here's the thing we've seen this before giving he is Gimmicky Everyone you know. I guess a lot of people started giving him a hard time after this loss in the play offs. I think it's more we said last year that we didn't think they were GonNa do that much this year because he was gimmicky that people figure it out figure A. He's still so fast though. He's got speed on his side but as soon as he slows down he's done I mean it's we saw it with Three Cam Newton Colin Ellen Catherine. I mean the list goes on you. It's good to have an athletic quarterback that can scramble when needed. Yeah but when you have these quarterbacks that run well and try to carry this mother shoulders and do every. It's just not GonNa last long a you know you might have a year to a good greatness but then you're going to get hurt. There's there's no getting rid of. That's usually what triggers is the injury like. Rg Three. I mean he took him to the play offs and then not hurt and that was it. Where's where's the just and a BA? You know he was a running quarterback. He held the rushing touchdown record for quarterbacks in Virginia Tech Michael Vick didn't even break the record. It did get broken in two thousand sixteen. I forget what the quarterback's name was but an in his book. He says the same thing. You cannot rely on your legs as a quarterback he he will never have a running quarterback I think Janus is like the closest that he would have. I'm not a big Fan. No I never i. I can't really think of one having great success by that. I'm saying win the Super Bowl. You know it's the generals. Those are the ones that win the Super Bowl. Well we're we've had this exact same conversation. They tend to rely on their athleticism autism too much and not enough on skill. Now Lamar Jackson he does have an arm. Don't get me wrong. So if he he I think he could make it relying on his arm alone. But you know we'll see it's not really a style don't ever do in the running. quarterbacks Kinda tend to try to be heroes Alma unlike like Russell Wilson you know I mean He. He's athletic. He can Enron but he doesn't doesn't have and that's why you should do it. I think and Winstons like that when he gets happy feet. A little bit too much for me but Russell Wilson's a very good field general. But he's also athletic enough to be able to mess defenses up by running for twenty yards of the ATO. He's he's smart about it all right. Let's move onto the Texans in the chiefs game. This was our only one that we differently. And who was the winner. Who Won? He lost. Talk Right now molly you pick the winner just barely barely won by like twenty points. The South it was what twenty one twenty four. Yeah we really guard the chiefs not showing up in the first quarter Texas that run up the score that much and then the day only score. What like seven points after that wanted? Shout Marissa it all of a sudden it was like Bam Bam Bam Bam Kansas. The city just started firing at all just added to show up. I guess they were arrested in the first quarter and it seemed like the Texans just didn't know what hit them they couldn't stop. They couldn't do anything they could could get any offense and it was the opposite the week before against. They play the bills where they were getting. Shut out the Texans were and that what was that. They showed up towards the end of it. So it's like they can only play one half new here. The seahawks packers game. So Boring Town Really GonNa win. Oh Yeah I was surprised. They didn't. It was a close one. Now Lamba such a hard place to play and it was cold. Uh The the packers. Just don't impress me this year. Luke Air Rogers. I never want to see him do you anything for the forty niners you got to John Lynch and they beat us years always a sweet sour thing. You know you're like don't want him to win because they beat you which you do WanNa win because it makes you look a little bit better because you got beat Miami right if they go to the playoffs look like a bunch of punks. What's that make you look and the titans it's the same way with the titans man but the underdogs sound rating forum? I'd like to see the titans. Forty niners super bowl. You not good smashmouth Super Bowl. That would be fun party to the championship. Let's make PECs ruge since you one last week. You gotta go I all right titans chiefs. I'm going to titans. I don't think that they have a great shot. But I haven't had a great shot against the Patriots or I didn't think I remember game. I was like all put money down. We ask you to comment. I will never do that. Ah I was joking. I wasn't expecting people to put money down on. I should never say that. Don't spend your hard earned money on what I say. Just give it to me. I got I got to go with the titans to but I know we're both going to pick the forty niners of the Titan. Like how do you pick against the chiefs chiefs at home. They went twelve and four on the season. They walked up on all right just to make it different. I'll pick achieves all right. See atop the hats. The titans were nine and seven going into the playoffs. Ridiculous come on the only to be by nine and seventeen and the playoffs. Was it a microwaveable. Their head coach said he would. He went cut off his penis for a super bowl case. All all right so next. We've got the packers at forty niners. Aren't you absolutely. Don't WanNa pick affects just pick. The forty niners liners. Don't go Steve. So we are that one okay of their boats on Sunday. Dang it okay so we get a free Saturday at least Olga okay. That's how you call it. You know during the season I get used to be able to do stuff on Saturday football Sunday but the last two weeks like her house is trashed. Haven't been able to glean. That's my Saturday thing. We've had playoffs every day. So all right well keep an eye out on the Youtube Channel. If you WANNA check out the analysis I have on James Winstons all thirty interceptions breakdown down on that. Hi How are you on it. It should be up to more kill tomorrow evening. The Friday the latest. Just say Friday. Give yourself a cushion Friday Friday Friday. Well if you want to go and subscribe to the channel and hit that little bell or whatever and you'll get a notification when the video comes up it's is GonNa be the first in a series of videos during this off season gonNA show off his sacks to it might be the next one I do show how many of them were due due to the offensive line. How many of them were due to the running backs? Not Blocking. It's going to be. I think people are GonNa be surprised at how many were do that. How many were due to the tight ends now? Blocking and in how many were due to Jameis Winston happy but think people are going to be surprised by that video. You got anything else. I go down. Oh we did watch. Mike Lavigne's play fortnight tonight. Yesterday it was a what was it on twitch twitch rivals. I thought they were GonNa have like a camera on Mike Evans. They didn't announcers. Were just talking and Mike Evans. Skin like sounds cool. I don't understand. Here's the unfortunate though but I don't know anything about giving us a call of duty story. Though I understand like minecraft craft kind of like more than four night and more the roadblocks you can tell preteen children team teen tinge son about that make you feel all right. That's GONNA wrap it up for US till next time galax.

Rebranding and Demanding

"So today on high noon Levian Bell is handing out apologies to fantasy football owners and we'll also examine the spike Murray hiding out near the heavyweight champion says he doesn't want to be so heavy. He wants to be right. I suppose us but we will start with the clippers who for now are called the clippers but they plan to move into a futuristic new arena in twenty twenty five five and they might overhaul the teams aesthetic new logo new colors even a new nickname. We have a once in a lifetime chance to step really steph our identity up another level level owner. Steve Bomber says Pablo. How do you feel about the clippers by another name. There is still the clippers and for me. It's not so much about a name in any of this. It's about the product. The Lakers acres are the Lakers there are no lakes anywhere in Los Angeles. They have a history or on a show that is called high noon. It's not noon right now where we are however what's the bomber wants to do it seems is hit hard reset on this organization because he has the power to do so because he has lots of new ambitions in so that's part of the plan and I do get it on that basic level. Was I going to accomplish if they do the time to wash the clipper nece off of the Clippers was twenty fourteen if you were going to do that do that when you bought all the team you were getting. Donald Sterling out of there they have reached a point now where clippers is not associated with being terrible. Clippers is not associated with being the most embarrassing franchise is in the N._B._A.. So they could wind up changing the name and doing something else but I feel like most of the heavy lifting has been accomplished especially considering this. They've built this team to win a championship really in the course the next two or three years if they win that as the clippers you're not changing the name. That's the part that matters here is about what is going on with the basketball as you said I.. I don't think they can possibly change the name if they win a championship but then again. I also thought if Kawhi Leonard won a championship in Toronto. Maybe he would not go anywhere else. I do feel like this is a team not the same but I do feel like this is a team that looks at precedent and says why do we have to follow that in general but I do think there's also a danger here right a danger in and what is the next name going to even be because for all of these stink associated historically with the clippers Bomani clippers right now it works. It's fine people get it like I think the focus group experiment might actually lead to something. Perhaps even more humiliating yeah but I mean their name has never been a problem. The problem has never then being called delivers the problem when it was a problem was that you were the clippers you are not the clippers anymore. Okay also worth noting Steve Bommer. You look up is wiki pages. Timely market stuff doesn't have the greatest track record and try to take a business in a whole different direction right just worth considering here but no they've already done the hard work here and and I think that's actually far more amazing than people give credit for being like we now have generation of players who grew up in live long enough with halfway decent clippers that they don't find it embarrassing to go sign up and play for them. That is a drastic change directly related to Chris Paul and Doc rivers and Blake Griffin like those three guys changed changed his game up. You can let this right now. If you want to change that logo that Guy Right there on the wall you go ahead and do that is by the time for that that does not really need to be. I was GONNA say people buy lots of jerseys because of designs but no one really buys them based on the name up next is a familiar name Ezekiel Elliott who's off training and Kabo San Lucas Lucas while the cowboys are camped all of which is why Jerry Jones signed Alfred Morris running back and also weighed in with this. You don't have to the have a rushing champion to win a super bowl but Emmett was the first one to do it and that's one of the dilemmas at running back is that the League knows knows that you can win super bowls and not have the Emmett Smith back. There are not have Z.. Back there. Oh what do you make wake of. What jared has said and done so far is supposed to say no? I really don't get in here. I don't know what we're going to do. That wasn't an option. It's also what he says. There's fairly disingenuous considering considering. They took him number four overall in the draft. This was actually your philosophy or running backs the you don't take a running back ray. You did it make that decision before he played it down they he was going to be the centerpiece of your offense but look what's. We're at the point where we are. You have to justify the fact that you're not. GonNa pay the dude and once you do that. You say you don't really have to have a rushing rushing champion now. Zeke's value is way beyond simply being a Russian champion if he is going to be that but Jerry Doin- what you gotTa do when you don't WanNa pay somebody well in Jerry's defense here. He is right about the larger observation about. Do you need a running back to win the Super Bowl. It's just weird here because this is a situation where Jerry Jones doesn't feel. I don't think like this is personal. Donald him this up personal to Ezekiel Elliott in this way. It seems like Jerry Jones is just saying. I know that you are the greatest running back in the league. I don't even think he would object to that notion notion that running backs as a category. There's a reason why they're the second lowest paid on average rate above long snapper. That's the reality of the position in two thousand nineteen gene and Jerry's just saying from the long-term perspective. That's not something I want to invest all of that money into yeah but he didn't really talk about that. Though on the long-term perspective ready talked about specifically is what running back and do it for you right now. There is no more disingenuous argument than you can win without insert thing here you could win with a hobble. PEYTON manning quarterback you. You could win with Trent dilfer at quarterback go through all kinds of other menial castes that have won super bowls. Nobody's going to use that as an explanation for why it is that you don't need Aaron Rodgers now of course the difference is is the idea that it's easier to get another running back than it is to get another decent quarterback. If all you're asking. You're running back to be decent. Go look at what the cowboys have been without Ezekiel regulating the time. They've had him versus when they were there because if I'll Dak Prescott an I'm Amari Cooper hey man our ability to get our money. Kinda hinges on you. Give him his money because if he shows up we you perform and then we get our money if he does not show up. We don't play as well. There's a wealth of statistics indicate that about both players but the more money you give Z. The less money you could wind up giving them yep like it's a complex circle. That's in place but using general running back rules when talking about one of the very special ones as not unless that landed with me yeah I think the context context has to be the salary cap of course but you're totally right. The long term might be what Jerry actually has ground to stand on but the short term. Everybody Needs Zeke if they WANNA win right now all right. Let's go to Calamari skin rave reviews from teammates and cotton's training camp Larry Fitzgerald SIP quote. I've never seen a quarterback come in so quickly and be able to command an offense Pablo phys play with great quarterbacks going back damn near to Neil Lomax you buying his praise and the number one overall pick. He's played with a lot of quarterbacks. This would be his twenty first. I and the funny thing about that list of twenty quarterbacks is Carson Palmer Kurt Warner and then he'd deep steep drop off and so this to me Bomani sounds like hype it sounds sounds like training crap propaganda and I am bullish on him as a talent on Carla Murray as a talent but we have to also see about this newfangled system that cliff Kingsbury. He's bringing to revolutionize the N._F._l.. Only newfangled in the N._F._l.. Is a pretty old old established system in college at very least but when Fitzgerald says is that I've never seen somebody come in command and offense like this. I would hope he could command the offense. It's the one he's been running came in and they're like yeah. We got this brand new thing for you. It's called the air raid. No they're saying hey this. Is this thing light which you've been running before which is a whole part of the reason why we drafted you in the first place is because you were a perfect fit for for this offense so I believe that he has command of it. What does offense is going to do in the league with that guy is going to do in the those are separate categories but he is wildly athletic with a cannon and arm in an offense? There's new to the N._F._l.. At the very least I expect this to start well because most of the so-called newfangled offenses start Steve spurrier started off with a bank chip Kelly. We started off with a bank early. It's probably going to go well when we're really going to start seeing the story on this is about week eight or nine and that's when the defense is will start adjusting to you. That's when it turns out that O- Carla Murray sorry can talk to David Johnson. He can ally his receivers at the line. You're saying that that's when the nice new car smell because just about everybody. Uh If you start off at some level of nominee thing about him as a quarterback at that height is going to be had they scheme of stuff over the middle because what happens with those little guys playing quarterback is they're gonNA throw a lot of out out routes and stuff like that but what can you do with the middle of the field when you gotta do this drew brees who basically just craned his neck out as far as it'll go in plays on the top of his toes. That's what he's got to do you to get that done. That's where we're going to see about Murray and I gotta say someone who's about five foot ten myself getting on your tiptoes. There's an advantage there right to stretch it all the way out. Make sure that your back straight relate buddy sixfold coming up next the U._S.. Women's national team going to get equal pay. I knew this brought to you by New New York Life. We know that life doesn't fit into any one plan so start a plan that flexes with yours. I can't believe that Gerald presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets look here comes a one point seven percent decrease in overhead. Hello everybody everybody now. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on Car Insurance Geico you projected increase in Organic Q._3. Revenue you believe at Geico could save you. Fifteen percent or more on car insurance is coming to you from the seaport district at pier seventeen brought to you by chase case we did notice spiders are just like us. Spider apparently has seen itself in a mirror. Yeah I do this at home. This is me this is absolutely me except I'll do like wind-ups. I'll do like marked dryer into the Mirror fifty thousand times. It's fun money. We have to talk about this U._S.. Women's national team story because while the world champs await mediation for their gender discrimination lawsuit against the U._S. soccer soccer's refuting the claim that it pays the men more than women in the first place a federation factsheet tells the Women's higher guaranteed pay their clubs salaries in the national women's Soccer League which subsidized by U._S. soccer a U._S. W. N. T spokesperson meanwhile calls all the accounting a rubes so Bo. What do you call that well? The counterargument that the women's soccer team is making an Khotan by the men by the away is basically that the accounting gets a little funky that they're not talking about base salary which is what is important. They're also talking about the more money being invested in the Women's sports subsidization of the Women's Sports League which is not exactly counting as salary here but the Version of these things it doesn't really sell so I feel like they probably did okay with the audience they were seek and even though it's probably a bunch of nonsense yeah the audience they were seeking. I think is is not actually even in the mainstream at this point. This is the weird thing to me about this fight. It's not the French national team or the German or the Spanish manager Brazilian that is the Women's national teams foremost opponent. It's U._S.. Soccer throughout this entire run through which they've become the most popular dealers soccer players from America in the world. It's not been their opponents. It's been their own federation and so the own Federation here their federation here has bungled angled this. Why would they do that right? They haven't analysis that they said independently audited which brings you to the complicated numbers that you mentioned but I want to see an analysis of that analysis that says actually Lee publicizing. This ahead of time is actually good for our P._R.. Because that's the thing that this team is really good at making even better than signed us what I'm saying like the person that says I wanna see an analysis analysis of the analysis is not who they are talking to and there will be just fine passing that off because most people are not saying. I want to see an analysis of the analysis right. They're not going with that but it's it's basic respect stuff. That's all this seems to come down to as in most things with a wage gap whether it'd be by gender by race or anything else is just a basic level of respect that is not president. If you don't believe the base level of respect not present what's his name right here Carlos Cordero Narrow Texas out we believe in U._S.. Soccer that all female athletes deserve fair and equitable affordable pay and finally but not last winner of the Golden boot the tournament's top scorer and the Golden Ball the best player Megan again wrapping. Oh here's all your baby how you pronounce your name right but you cute in on equitable there why talent because it's not the same thing as equal equitable is based on some notion of fairness in the fairness as being determined by the larger group equal. That's the same about the money. Equitable is what somebody thinks is right and they seem to think it is right to pay them less. The argument seems to go pretty clearly in the other direction but the only way that swings back somebody go have to miss them games. I don't know if the courts don't do it right and of course just might but if the courts don't do it somebody will have to take the fight to that next level. I just wonder in U._S.. Soccer realizes how wildly unpopular their position is because on the one hand. I understand if you have a deep analysis that makes you feel like hey the word is getting out there all the way sure point that out but on the other hand if you women's soccer team decided to say we actually deserve more than the men because we're winning our games aims and we're really good. I think that that would also be very popular and so what they're getting is neither of those thing I say I haven't seen the polling but don't assume wounded because the position is popular among your friends that it is popular among everybody s the same thing that happens with paying athletes. Everybody I know is down with the majority. America's not should coming up next while Levy on bail apologize fantasy football players. I wouldn't do that for you done. Listen to this. This is what I go through every trouble during our show you it's really yeah see here's the thing though sensors just berry. I feel like I got shut up. Well people tell me you can't ain't do that to them. We kids but you can make your bird show. We need to put some respect on the payer communities name that parry sound like a baby. All those parents warn people about drug dealers Columbia remember that story it was a big story parrots. I just want the pair of shut up. Is that okay that's fine. Quo People need to understand that I came this far aww Chubby and all that far I could go actually being in good shape and looking good heavyweight champ Andy Ruiz about his plan to get in shape after knocking out Anthony Joshua in June Pablo reece's rematch with Joshua. We'll be on zone before the end of the year. So what do you make of releases decision to change what's worked for. I am hardened by this. I think this is a good decision from the medical perspective. His nutritionist has doctor must be thrilled to hear this but his agent must be really worried because because this is why we love Andy Rees because he has a lot of himself to give. I want that guy. I want the guy who looks like he edited himself into that fight because I was shocked when I saw it and was tickled by the way this guy looks. Are you talking about the like the medical community forget that that's not a dude who needs to be fighting being heavyweights by the world class. It worked out that one time that does not mean that you need to try that for a second time that is a man who looked in the mirror sent himself man. I got lucky Keith and I have to be careful of. I'll go come out here and I'm GonNa do this again. That'd be said you are correct theirselves fascinating about America's which is why y'all hate fat people really like like you fat person. Does something ironically athletic like this right here. This is the brand this is who he is and if he stops doing this and he becomes somebody that's in good shape then you go resent Zittau because he not fat like you well not you but People who are worse when they decide to slim down purely from the entertainment perspective of others for their own well-being but again we don't love them. We objectified them right. We just like I'd say you're is either for us to laugh at or to laugh at while you do something well even though in the end we are ultimately still laughing at you but we do like portly people who do incredibly athletic things that is that is what we do. My Boy Rod Black Guy who tips check out his podcast. He always makes that point when he goes to. He's a crossover dribble away from being. Everybody's friend tastes like shelby basketball player. They really looked at but just imagine for instance if like if Dan levitan decided to lose the bunch wait. I'm just saying it'd be different. Dan I love that Dan. I just wouldn't love him to the same proportion because he decided to make things a little better for himself and not for me. I'd take him just as he was. Oh sorry very. It's not even that sweet. It's just like you no dad only like you. If you're fat man changed my life look at this watch this for Dan. I gotTa Watch you could if you stop being cheap. Today's number cost effective by the way four hundred six. This is a custom suit. Supply jackets made to measure. How dare you but four hundred six is the the number of touches? Levy on bell led the league with in two thousand seventeen but after sitting up all of last season in a contract dispute with the steelers Bomani the man took a moment to apologize is to fantasy football owners showed that tweet so Bo does bell really oh the fantasy community this apology sorta does he owe a tool of course not he goes out here trying to get his real money people's out here trying to win money and they fantasy leagues however point that I've made about the the N._F._l.. That they need to understand is once you started selling fantasy football. You started selling the League as a block as opposed to selling individual team these players now belong to everybody in a way because the fantasy team now with Levy belt think about this for a second people hatred registered like there's a special hatred anything comes up which I didn't really do anything anybody does not not like he played for a team that that many people root for he played for the browns. Why would people have such a distaste for Tran Richardson Fantasy Football. That's why they'd have such distaste and we love you deliver. Do I make him. I keep her if you made him. You're keeping you wrote them out all year long or you burn a good draft pick auto chances. Are you now hate levy on in a way that you probably shouldn't so maybe an apology is a way to make the nation warm up to him a little bit. I mean you mentioned Trent Richardson. Remember Brian Westbrook Brian Westbrook literally one is team game name by taking that fall before the goal line and it was very smart except that it you know messed up all these fantasy owners days and so when it comes to this apology will it work in terms of winning over those fantasy owners of course it will. They want to hear nothing more than wow. You're gonNA touch the ball. Maybe four hundred five hundred times a game but I ask you this. What's the real difference here between fantasy football and gamblers because I feel like this is warm and cuddly and N._F._l.. Approved but if you say you know what Las Vegas Vegas gamblers out there. I'm sorry let you down. I feel like maybe we wouldn't see it the same way you have pretty much aw enclosing. Here's some guys who she use these skills to make more money doing something else like seriously. How do they have all this time. Check this out here. Yes yes here. We go man. I turned on inverted like fish. Wedge makes drop there here we go. There was a fan there that here we go hit them. Steps keep going. The record is not <unk> over yet. Record is not over yet. Yo you'll go and they'll go there. You go I joe. This is really really really impressed. It is here's the thing I'm saying about this dorm looking at that neighborhood. I'm looking at the age on those do which was houses dish still live there because I feel like if you've got all these salads and this understanding the physics and everything else. You should be somewhere being a civil engineer instead. Eh You like damn. I forgot to take the chicken. Mama go beholding as someone who grew up playing the game mouse trap. Did you ever play Mousetrap. They won't accept the whole thing. That's that's what this is. The Internet has found a way to monetize potential mouse trap engineers and for me in an age when like computer editing is real easy. There's something quaint unlovely about kids being sincere about this whole project. Do you mean kids look at those people. Those aren't children. Bill Yeah Yeah No. It's a good point anyway anyway. Enclosing is a very serious take on the bronze parenting that I feel like America really needs to hear right now. Just kidding take out this tree so we're in Spain. Oh this is a ceremonial tree felling and could have been bad in fact so great for momentum the blue but watch the guy who is pushing the tree saving saving all those people those people say what the hell they think was going to happen like somebody was. GonNa Catch Nail here in all likelihood good but they all live and we can laugh about it now questionable coming up next laugh if they did.

Now your host Fred Wally took the word on my mom jarred right centreback home. The bottom line is Yankees hardly one on Thursday and it promised a yeah young friend of his that he was going to hit a home run hit three and that double and of course he had a chance for the fourth and we're somebody hit three home runs. I'm I'm not sure that's ever been done in the history of baseball before that's ask mark grandstanding because he's been around since eighteen sixty nine and the Cincinnati reds playing their first game. Hey Mark has anybody ever the game of baseball overseeing four consecutive games with at least one eight play one eight hundred eight seven eight seven five two nine rick in Las Vegas at one eight hundred eight seven eight play wreck welcome to the show. Hey what's happening bread. Let me ask you think marks having some technical difficulties. You're very the old <hes> you remember that ever happening before or is that a first in the history of baseball. It never happened three times in a row for mookie Betts today you know there's home runs or some of the story. The Minnesota twins are the first the fastest team team ever in the history of baseball to get to two hundred home runs and it's whatever it is oh I'm watching all the games that I watch all the games all every night and on the V. Package and I watched the foul line drives and the white sox are going to have the netting all the way down in an you know Rick's talking. We're talking about home runs but what we're saying is hundred ten miles an hour from the bat and and if it's in the field of otas seventy five woman died dodger stadium last season season Rick shouldn't every team in baseball have netting coast to coast all the way down the sidelines <hes> the right field line the left field line and let's end this possibility of little kid dying or a seventy five road woman dying. What do you think it's it's a cure fred red? It's unfortunate that it's got to this now. Everybody used to take their gloves to ball games and I I don't know people are on their phones are doing something not paying attention and more people get it. You know I the net cameron not gonNA come back to my face. If if it's coming at me there's no getting out of the way the ball traveled two best you you. You're lucky jerk your head out of the way I if you can do that so I guess you know like I say security. It's moving that I think marks back with this technically marker you. They're here all right so the bottom line the bottom line mark is what do you think about netting from the right field line all the way to the left field line so we can stop anybody from getting hurt because again earlier this beginning Tuesday or Wednesday damn watering down the right field line was a line drive and I realized the netting netting sort of bothers the way you can see the game but I think the most important issue is safety is not well. I'll tell you I know you and I have gone to agree to ball for Lada years. <hes> I think it comes down to cell phone use of these stadiums where people just aren't paying attention to a certain extent is why why they're they're getting hit now. <music> I don't condone the three year olds eight year olds or wherever got hidden in some of these cities Shitty but I think <hes> now the player and fan experience is going to be you know kind interfered with because now you've got to Nettie running at five year. Old Kid can get hurt. You can't watch the kid all the time. The kid is moving around I I would. I if I'm bringing a five year old or I'm bringing somebody that granted guys that foul balls the the one that was killed dodger stadium last year. The lady that was <hes> in the reserve are the load section eighteen. If I recall so how far is letting GONNA go <hes> if if we have the dodgers are saying they're they're going to extend it. I just think it has has to be done rick. What do you think you have a kid? How how do you control the kid? How do you watch the kid the entire time and a line drive coming? I agree with mark just like I said people aren't paid as much attention but if you go to a hockey game once that clears the top of that glass the you know there's people bullshit also in direct line. I was at the Broadmoor arena in Colorado Springs and I saw lady catch one right in the forehead as she forwarded take a bite out of her baggage. You Watch the rest of the OX gape. It does come with the winter territory in some sports now. I don't know Fred I think one of the things people are neglecting to think about is what about an outfielder running for foul ball down the line that he gets tangled up in the one time. The guy's career is is mister ended to you know it might actually really stop him from going so I don't know how that would hurt an outfit or chances of getting injured one way or the other folks. What do you say out there? I say extended as far as you can and again I love baseball but bottom line is the number one things should be safety. One eight hundred eight seven play one eight hundred eight seven eight seven five two nine. No we're not far away from the football season. <hes> talk about the odds of your favorite team right now in the future books in the Rams uh-huh the Patriots and the chargers would be all in the top three or four or five but what do you think well. We all know that if you go to the Super Bowl you really don't bounce back into the playoffs to follow although in Europe western New England paid or not GonNa make the playoffs but <hes> I don't. I don't think they're getting back to the Super Bowl because you know now now. You've got to raise the level but I like the steelers champ in you know would the browns are on the uprise chance to wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.

Let's go to rick who is watching listening on fourteen hundred in Las Vegas wreck say thank the browns have a chance or what are the odds of future book odds on the Cleveland Browns. The bookies are just already planning their vacations in money's coming in the rams nine to two chiefs five the one patriots five the one the one St. seven to one. That's the top five loop at the brow away if you say okay let's take a parlay the raiders the raiders are going to play the browns in the A._F._C. Championship game to you go to the Super Bowl odds. Could you get on that matchup below six hundred fifty. One just doesn't seem enough. I think probably can't well let me say this if you're in L._A.. Charger fan you have to hope <hes> Melvin Gordon get signed and if they don't sign him I think the chargers out of their minds just because you've got a shot this year and it's not a great shot but I think in talent I want you to Siriusxm to eleven and Larry. Hey what's on your mind. Hey Larry Hey. I'm happy Laker Fan Clipper the Lakers Clippers ranker's Christmas Day. I'm not sure who's going to win. I think both teams are set up. Well Lakers set up for the I may be set up for the regular season. Let me just say this so I mean it's an awesome Sarah and it's is not against Jeanie Buss his lifetime of business and so it's Jerry buses job as a dad add to let his son get an opportunity and Jim bus didn't do a good job with the Lakers genie's. He's not a mean person but I mean hiring magic was not a good situation so you got Steve Bomber Angeles newspapers about moving tanglewood and it's going to happen after the twenty-three season because they still have deal with staple center until then. I'm sure it's going to be a beautiful one billion dollar stadium that Steve bombers going to build but Larry let me throw it to you. I mean if you're a player. Aren't you going to lean toward the team with their management. I think clearly the clippers have even the score maybe past us in the management department of but the Laker brand and this being a Laker town. There's always gonna be that dries well so I think it's kind of either Steve at the moment stable and they've been in the past year. The magic problem was a little bit of a Devakula's who say but I think that you know this has always been a Laker town and the clippers although they've the great strides and it got the management team to do it <hes> they still have a little bit to overcome and I think <hes> as Muhammad Ali eight teams that could win it in the last or actually six in the West and to the east and I think the Lakers with the prime can Anthony Davis Anthony Davis who can draw fifty on anybody at any time <hes> collide control forty on any buddy but he has to work workout more so the Lakers have some insight outside advantages clippers have a deeper team that our team's speed <music> Clippers Lakers obviously l._a.. We'd say seventy five twenty five Laker town but I think it's changing I really do is management if the clippers showing itself to be better mark. What do you think well covering the clippers last three seasons? Thanks you guys. I just think it's the the CIA engine of the Guard is is is in full effect. It reminds any more of a jared Paul team. Everything really has to hit right for the Lakers to make the playoffs because on the other side of the coin Kawhi Leonard One in Toronto not a big cast of guys and now he's got some young studs in in clipper land here. I think it's a clipper bucks final in you know I thought it was going to be this year. Rick in Las Vegas Living Listening on Kiss H._p.. Do you have a viewpoint. One way or the other well yeah you said Said Jim Butts didn't do good with the lake. That's like saying the Germans didn't do good in the world wars. I it's GonNa come down the health. You know you've got you've got the big two do and in both places. It's going to be cool rivalry. They've all been teammates. They all like each other. They all get get along. Well you know Paul George and our to revenge us just fan Dan but the King Lebron is thirty five years of age. How many game did he miss last year here and presume he's going to be able to play entire season without injury? So I mean you know healthy. You Got Davis in Bron but I don't see Lebron playing eighty games protect Davis again. There's going to have to play slow ball all with a big guys shooters and I do think the inside outside the pick and Roll Anthony Davis and I think Anthony Davis is greatness lateness. I mean I remember about nineteen people in the N._B._A.. In history have averaged twenty and ten seventeen ever in the hall same and two of them currently play for the Lakers on luggage and give us anything <hes>. We're GONNA have to say ball. We'll be in good shape. <hes> provide a week dodge injury but Larry I wish you the best and very quickly. I know you have kids are would you drive inglewood with the kids. Instead of UH the staple center once the brand new arena is built by Steve Bomber. There's no difference geographically to me. It's where I can get a ticket at a reasonable reasonable rate and it looks like that's going to be nowhere near as zoomed as far as the off market is concerned and also I I think the clippers have raise ticket prices tremendously but it's still not close to the Lakers ticket price. Hey Larry Gray quick thing. Go ahead can't believe what Paul George said at that press conference he yeah that he had a good relationship with okay see management and that they work together to make that thing work once it was not a case of things all right very thanks for the call very very much folks you can call one eight hundred eight seven play one eight hundred eighty eight seven eight seven five two nine.

One eight hundred eight seven eight play one eight hundred eight seven eight seven five two nine meanwhile for minimum wage athletes out there weekend athletes athletes out there. We got Dr Jason. We're slow with US and he has devised their thera gun Dr Borislav welcome to the show. Thank you good to be a war. I heard a rumor that you didn't exactly just just sit down and just devise this. It's sort of happened. magically a couple things happened that had to what happened. Is that there. How did it happen say magically I think when things were happening to me that that caused the the only they weren't magical but looking back on they were in two thousand seven? I was in a motorcycle accident actually on my way to my one of my last test in Chiropractic school and <hes> had a guy cut me off the freeway on fifty five miles an hour and I didn't win the Hello I ended up with a lot of soft tissue damage in my neck and down my right arm and <hes> I was in the position that a lot of people are you. You know my insurance wasn't <hes> I wasn't in a good position <hes> financially to be able to pay for a lot of this <hes> treatment I was going to need and so I was looking around for something that I could fix myself with or at least a modality the minute clinic you know just leaving chiropractic schools going clinic you try and purchase pretty much modalities as you can to help clients and <hes> you know the ones that I had in my clinic that just didn't help with my most Fisa. Keep paying <hes> long story short I I found that vibration works <hes> another brother minds a chiropractor and then an accident prior to mine and he used vibrated on his pain and so I thought wow there's something to that <hes> started using the same product that he had after getting his advice and found the vibration worked but <hes> the way I use it. I was actually turn this machine. On about the size of the cocaine I put underneath my armpit. I would let it vibrate vibration would make the pain tolerable <hes> US fascinated by the concept <hes> in two thousand and eight beginning of two thousand eight. I created it's something for myself. <hes> not ever having the idea that I would ever show up anyone. Let them sell it <hes> and it works. I got myself better veteran a few months. <hes> put it away. I was done <hes> patient came later that year with them are injuries <hes> and his insurance was the same as mine was and I really related to this guy and I thought I wonder if it's works on him and it did <hes> so I was accidentally or magically as you said I was the first patient this guy was the second and I started using it on you know my patients in the clinic study using Asian on somebody that I worked with in it. It really has some pool benefits to it so from two thousand eight to two thousand fifteen I created five different versions perfecting it as I went along the way understanding more and more about the custody therapy and what it does to the body and then all of our bodies <hes> and it's it's been a fun ride talking to Dr Jason Worse Law who has devised a Thera- now mark. You're an old guy. I know you're a weekend athlete. Slow pitch softball and things like that. Where do you hurt well? My back injury. <hes> was a yellow for real size and going went through therapy and everything I thought the best thing I did was when I was going through therapy they lay on this table and they strap in it was almost like you're in a straightjacket and it would separate the <hes> the nerve that they hitting the l four l five and <hes> that really he worked for me. <hes> I did electrodes <hes> for a while and stuff like that but none of that worked. Are you familiar with that thing where they lay on the table only strap you it's supposed to separate <hes> yeah nerve from all my gosh one of the best things and it would work work and <hes> because I can't even walk for months Doctor Those are those are called distraction tables and I I have those I had those in my clinic and at some point in my injury I got to the point where I could be on one of those that I would actually use their again at the same time all right so what you're saying and is there a gun. Would you would work on the back because I've got a disintegrating disc. You're telling me Thera gun would work on my disintegrating disk and I wouldn't need the spine surgery. Tell me yes no sorry man. I wish I could bear some better news there thera gun actually these tension mentioned the body and any time you have pain inflammation in the body of pensive <hes> your ease both of you with your issue. There's a lot of people suffering these things and when I say suffer it's it's the symptoms of the injury. That's happening to your body and a lot of times most times. The only relief he really did is when you're getting P._T._O.. When you go see someone that's working on you and what arrogant does is it provides the opportunity to put this on your body and sitting areas and there's a scientific scientific facts about how it actually does override the pain signals to the brain so you can sort of shut those down <hes> but so I can tell you it will help you with is your symptoms but it won't make that disintegrating come back so it's not totally magic well? I mean sometimes it is okay so athletes. Get how you know. We're not trying to sell it for you. But how do people find find the Saragan. Where did they find a surrogate? <hes> we have instagram <hes> yet but if they're on <hes> are are you can email us at that. You can email me at D._J.. W DOT COM and you reach out I I answer my emails. <hes> water website during dot COM <hes> you find some Amazon I read actually has a lot of content either supports the education and we have an APP. They were GonNa ask you can find that you have store. It's simple <music> easy ways to use this product in your life that kind of brings your daily activities back till you want them to be so we think they've without paying the percussive therapy released tension body whether it's from a workout like athletes or considering I call are sitting in the chair. It really does working as quickly nucleus part of the reason this is all right so what kind of athletes have used it for what kind of <hes> injuries <hes> you know. I think it's important that you bring up the athletes that a lot of the athletes that I started working on two thousand twelve <hes> we're using it for performance enhancing. They weren't using it for injuries. <hes> it would it would loosen their muscles. Give them a better feeling. What's happening to the by so when you see the <hes> on the side of a bath the N._B._a. n._H._l.? Major League Baseball we're in all those leagues. A lot of these guys are using them so performance enhancing effects it actually leases the muscle that gives your joints and muscles a larger range of motion and it helps them understand where they are in space which is called appropriate -ception option also had guys that have little tweaks here and there you know they pull it kind of tweak a hamstring they mess up their shoulder and to be able to have have something like this in their life they can use you know without having a physical therapist. Follow him around <hes>. That's that's really where a lot of these guys are using it but the P._t.'s the physical therapist and the physios are the guys that are usually working on the injured this just sort of ties over that time between when a P._T.. Get his hands on you. When you're just living your life hey mark? You're on the doctor Jason Worse Law. I'm sure you've got some questions because you're no guy with injuries and with the pain around your ninety well. I'll tell you the first two things I would go after if I'm pushing it to the athletes I'd be looking at Adrian Gonzales the former dodger Roger spokesperson on this <hes> with you or with Clayton Kershaw had back problems any thoughts on those two guys love Clayton Kershaw. We we do a lot with the dodgers that they're they're. They're home team. You wear in Los Angeles so we got it makes it a desert taking care of you know there's the EH protocols. We have our our for warm out separation recovery. Actually I'm died using during their workouts. <hes> I'd love to get my hands on those guys okay so the bottom line is if you're twenty five. You're not gonNA feel as much pain after your workout and whatever you're pitching in the major leagues you're not I think you're going to be able to come back sooner but if you're Clayton now on your thirty thirty one <hes> somebody like that that might need it more than the younger person and I think our audience is probably between twenty five and forty five so it would be perfect situation for some members of far audience so obviously you first of all you would agree that it would probably will more older older athletes versus younger younger athletes would use it and would need it which agree with that absolutely and you know. It's funny when you say that because a lot of the things that I hear from <hes> athletes I I I was with one of about a week ago who said to me. If I've had this. When I was playing I think I'd still be Kwang and I hear that a lot <hes> a lot of these guys as they age they start to understand their bodies? More there starts understand that recovery abilities they start. I understand their position or the sport and how to prevent these things and how on Jimmy so I think perspective changes a little bit obviously become a little bit older than athlete but recreationally it and health and wellness. This is for all of us. Whether you're pro sport practically a recreational athlete we WANNA WANNA be able to do what we love doing every day or every weekend every other day and it's it's really more about our consistency and if you don't take care of his body the only get one of these and we take care of this whether you're getting paid millions of dollars to play basketball. You're just hanging out with buddies playing basketball your ability to continue to to do that is how you take care of your body and that's really what we're trying to do. Whether it's my mom with foot problems or or you know you name the athlete in what sport they're in it. It really does allow them to have the power and control in their hands to take care of just the day to day routine <hes> kind of maintenance thing Dr Salon thirty seconds because we've got to go to a break.

Something you probably don't know about me is that when I was younger I used the show dogs. My mom is has been a dog handler for a long time she showed first obedience and then confirmation and they will say the the obedience training of her dogs has really suffered. Since I was a kid human she used to be really cheap soon. As the founder of the Obedience Training Club that was in her local area she was one of the the first and that was her thing but then she went on to confirmation confirmation. I don't know what confirmation right so they have this in actually almost every animal out there has some kind of confirmation like fairs or something says when you stand the animal animal up take a look at it and say this is either close to whatever the standard is the breed standards they call it <hes> the American Kennel Club calls or it. Is You know this is uh ugly dog right like how pretty is this dog based on a set of guidelines Brita supposed to look like right so the breed standard right like you're never gonNa make it English bulldog pretty but you're gonNA make them look like they're supposed to look and I did that for a period of time because because then you know it's it's what my mom did and I had an opportunity to it so one thing that I'm really proud of the K. C.. The American Kennel Club for is as they had they started a program called see it's banned the breed and obeying the deed not the breed so banned the deed not the breed add it was basically focusing on pit bulls which the American Kennel Club considers Mutts all right so they came in defense defense of a breed that to the best of my knowledge they do not recognize that this they don't they don't consider the pit bull breed right now. What does the American Staffordshire terrier terrier which is the pit bull is kind of from this to some extent but yeah so a pit bull is just just basically a you know a month by the American Kennel Club standards? I'm not gonNA take the stance that it's a Mutt. I don't actually believe that I I think that it is <hes> developing developing breed. It's it's a recognizable name. You know what everyone almost everyone. I think knows what a pit bull is and and can recognize nice one pretty pretty likely I think they're changing over time to when I was a kid pit bull would have a much smaller head <hes> much much less of a broad chest than they do now now now they look like <hes> bigheaded bodybuilders and with pointy eared bodybuilders but you know a pit bull was bred to to some extent I mean American staffordshire terriers bulldogs of all sorts they were bred is fighting dogs and they have that lineage and you can decide what as a matter of fact my my mother has a French bulldog not anyone's idea of a fighting dog right right but we have a Doberman and he was you know just not quite good enough for show quality so he ended up at our house and he's great I love him and he is eighteen months and she is eleven years old. She doesn't mind playing a little bit but he really likes to play a lot so every once in a while just get a hold of his face and hold on because that's what she was bred to do at some point or another he'll he'll go wander off and you know get hurt enough that he wanders off youthful exuberance right so I mean but a a French bulldog is considered by pretty much everybody to be no longer a fighting dog by any stretch of the imagination. It's a it's a companion dog just likes to hang out and sit on laps. Dobermans on the other hand and our people are scared to death of these things for whatever reason I think it's the point years now well no remains have been I mean when I was growing up. Everyone thought Dobermans were were the chemical aggressive dog right. I think that was probably bulls came along. Where do you think that came from the I think I I know I'm just GonNa Guess? You don't have any idea okay magnum P._i.. Had Two beautiful black dobies that were that guarded the I don't know the the Comic Relief Guy's house so this is his name in Hawaii. I remember Higgins or something. I don't know if that's what it was ages. Since I've I would not the one to to know that but I I watched the show I enjoyed it. It had FERRARIS DOBERMANS helicopters gunplay. What do you want for Michelle? Tom Selleck the Tom selleck well. I guess yeah I can't say the Tom Selleck. was that exciting to me. But what what am I stash. The guy still has anyway the basically basically I'm proud of the A._k._C. for their band. The deed not the breed campaign that they brought out in order to defend something that they don't even consider a breed because I I think it's the right thing to do and I want to read an article here from untamed science about what is the most dangerous dog breed and I think people are really WanNa know this. I mean how what have you heard. What's the most likely dog to bite you well? Everyone knows it's the pit bull I. I think a lot of people have heard that I've also heard Chihuahuas <hes> I've heard rottweilers Dobermans German shepherds and up German shepherds but those those are police dogs. They're police trained to bite you. They are trained to bite you that well. That's part of the point here in mind you but if a dog is a a police dog trained to bite I mean does it not count. Should it not should every bite from a German shepherd. Police dog not be counted in the list of you can't count those those are police dogs doc Saint John Okay all right. I just WanNa know I I obviously don't believe that just but somebody does somebody does once the most dangerous dog breed everyone and their mother has a story about being bitten scratched or even attacked by dangerous dog it can become such a problem that some areas have enacted breed in specific legislation. That's they're using the term P._S._l.. I'M GONNA try to stick with breed specific legislation though outlawing breeds of dogs that we think are dangerous like pit Bulls Doberman pinschers Shire's and German shepherds but which breed of dog is actually the most dangerous one well. Let's try and looking at actual data rather than coming up with emotional judgments about about P._d.. From the little rascals which dog breeds a P._d.. I think would probably be called a pit bull.

It's it's mark with you and Michael the number eight five five four five zero three seven three three eight fifty five four fifty freeze and freedom and we're talking about all things dogs <hes> you know at this point specifically reading an article about what is the most dangerous dog but I you're welcome to call in about anything that you find interesting as a matter of fact we have I I I would credit our chat room with this story anyway because <hes> somebody was talking about it in there and it's an interesting topic. I think people like to talk about which dogs are most dangerous because somebody's always he's got a story and as a matter of fact another topic that Kinda gets people rattled up sometimes docking tails or Clipping Ping ears. Oh yeah I I that is that is abusive. I cannot go see I. I have a dog whose tail is docked and ears are clipped lipped because I've got a doberman right and this is how it's done. I'll get into that here in just one second. I WanNa tell you about bitcoin dot COM bitcoin dot com was <hes> it's it's launch. A trading platform called local DOT BITCOIN DOT com allowing you to buy or sell bitcoin cash via dozens of payment methods like pay pal then mo how bank deposits remittances meeting in person with cash there are no more I._D..

Let's talk about cropping ears. Yeah I why why do people why would anyone cut that tape of their dogs years right <hes> couple of reasons so it originally started because fighting dogs. You don't want them to want or even a dog. That's intended as a car dog. You don't want somebody grants ear. You don't want a dog to be able to grab a hold of its ear and give it a disadvantage so you know hopefully nobody's just making fighting dogs but a guard dog. It's still makes a certain amount of sense but you look at a Doberman and you still have these long sort of ears and it seems like they've you've there now stylized as opposed to really being cropped for that purpose but the advantages one of the major advantages is if you've ever had a floppy your dog you spent some time likely dealing with yeast infections and you know sort of stuff that goes on in the year when the is not opened up. I'm sure you're familiar with say the German shepherd looks its ears or pointy and open whereas a Beagle for instance has a floppy ear so the the floppy ear is a disadvantage from a health standpoint the probably optimal situation as the way a wolf's ear is but dogs where they become domesticated domesticated. You know over time they've used became floppy because I don't know I don't know what's probably the same reason that a killer whales dorsal fin doesn't stick up when it's <hes> <hes> in captivity for whatever reason to happen now you know you have floppy eared dogs and and I get stuff gets in there and it can't it can't come back <unk> out YEP causes infections okay. We had a Saint Bernard that we kept at my house for several months as a friends and they they had some issues so we took the dog great great dog awesome dog but I mean I can't tell you how much time I spent laying on top of this dog. What my wife went fiddle in his ears <hes> pretty much every single day we were doing something by the way God bless that apple cider vinegar it sure did the job all the medications we could get from the vet nothing but apple cider vinegar fix the problem somebody out? There's <music> apple cider vinegar. I can't remember what the name of the the one brand that everybody knows but it has the mother in it. You know what that is. I don't goop at the bottom. I guess I just despite the store ran apple cider vinegar. Let's go to the phones. We got greg calling in from New York Greg. You're on free talk live you can hear me what's on your mind. <hes> okay well. I hate to do plug INS and advertisements but <hes> I want to talk about. It's something that I think your <hes> your listeners would be interested in <hes> I work for a podcast called politics weekly and this Friday. There's GonNa be a twenty twenty. <hes> Libertarian Debate <hes> that is going to be off <hes> some of the candidates include <hes> Arvin Vohra <hes> Knack Abramson thin Thuraya spas so this is a libertarian party debate the Libertarian Party. This is the one that went on in Massachusetts. This is just a podcast debate audio so they like got it on skype or something and everybody got into a chatroom yeah okay. How long is it one hour and five minutes and if I listen I'm GONNA find out which Libertarian candidate I liked the most yeah there are four candidates that participated there Arben for the final repeated over and over again because now now you're getting on my nerve? I'm already promoting podcast on my podcast all right <hes> for free so yeah I mean I think the people people probably should take a listen to this stuff if they're interested in the Libertarian party politics but I don't know about you greg but I'm probably GonNa vote for whatever the Libertarian Rian is <hes> no matter what yeah <hes> well again non-bias person. I don't typically feel my politics on on there. I do a lot of the debate but I thought a lot of people listening by the interested yeah if they're undecided which libertarian and it's good to do about it. What can they do about you know wanting to the their particular candidate to win how do they? How do they handle that well? I know that <hes> there's the Convention Convention in Houston next year. They're gonNA Libertarian Convention and <hes> people who go I know it's expensive but people that go can't vote for who they <hes> who they want to be on the ballot for president and vice president <hes> but <hes> it's pretty interesting the podcast the all the Kennedy made their cases and they all did pretty well <hes> but <hes> it's GonNa be a this Friday. It's GonNa be on spotify anchor out podcast and if you don't want to listen to all that then on Saturday it's going to be on Youtube on the election each channel all right well. Thanks for the call appreciate it Greg. I can tell you this if you basically if you really care about who the Libertarians put up in in two thousand twenty then the best thing to do is to sort of get a hold of your state party now and ask them. What's it take to be a delicate because I know for one thing you you got to pay your way to to Houston and pay for your hotel room and all that stuff that stuff out of your own pocket yeah because they're not gonNA? They're not gonNA throw you the cash for that. Don't even have the cash. I don't think that so you can expect the Republicans or Democrats at the Convention to pay for your stuff either so I mean I don't think that's unusual and I mean what I hear. Here is a lot of people complain about what goes on in the Libertarian Party. How are they put up this guy or that guy well? Now's your opportunity yeah. If you want to change the way they do business than then get involved. That's all you have to do or you can just sit on the sidelines complain. That's always all right. Let's go back to the story here. Where <hes> that I got actually from the chat chat room discord dot freetalklive dot com you get in the chat room there? It's actually a Phil Collins and a few of the the the folks that are in there chatting about all these things how all things dog related and if it's the Real Phil Collins it's Phil Collins.

You are free to call in and talk live here on the airwaves the number eight five five four five zero three seven three three eight fifty five four fifty free as in freedom. It's mark with you and Michael. You can call and talk about whatever you want but we're talking about dangerous doug breeds and well. You know it's up to you. Talk about what you want. <hes> I want to tell you real quick about an advertising program that we've started here on free talk live life and it combines radio digital and print all in one. I think it's amazing and I think it's going to really change advertising using <hes> herbal at least at the very least be important advertising sometime in the future and we're involved in. I'm glad that we are so if you are a business owner. This is really for you. <hes> the what the program is basically an APP you get a one two three DOT freetalklive dot com. It's as easy as one two three. That's why we use that one two three DOT freetalklive dot com and it's an APP that will allow you to take pictures and then send the pictures to yourself so like physically cleaned so the pictures are taken on your cell phone and then you say I like this one this one this one this one and then they they send the prince to you now. The prince have some advertising zing on them because nothing in this world is Free Ladies and gentlemen and it's it's. It's a special micro. perforation tear looks just like a it was cut so it it'll look great but but anyway then you get a picture and the advertiser had their ad in your hand because direct mail is very traceable. They know what the results are going to be when it comes to direct mail but most people throw that crap away so do you want direct mail that has a far greater response rate which is just a that's what guesses one two three dot freetalklive dot com for your business. One two three DOT freetalklive dot com going on on with this article here from untamed science dot Com so which breeds or more dangerous talking about dogs of course of course aggression is is only part of the issue a ankle biter may be more aggressive but isn't likely to kill you in general big dogs are more dangerous but is the legislation against certain dog breeds warranted while you're pit bulls off and targeted with breed specific legislation. It's time to separate the fact back from feelings according to two thousand study more than half of dog related deaths between <hes>. There's a seventy nine ninety eight twenty years were reportedly caused by pit Bulls rottweilers however more than twenty five different breeds of dogs were implicated in dog caused fatalities as well most dogs that are actually caused deaths have certain physical characteristics their large very muscular and have a low center of gravity and extremely namely powerful jaw muscles many of these dogs or even bread to attack and protect other animals and people. It sounds pretty bad head when you look at it on the surface like that so let's dig in deeper I it's pretty hard to identify pit bulls in the first place. Don't believe me check cut this site. They got a link here. <hes> it's sort of genetic termed a generic term to begin with. That's what I said. The A._K._C. considers a matz it doesn't really apply to any one breed of dog aww except the American pit bull terrier in fact one hundred thirteen studies show that it was actually pretty common for media and official counts of dog breeds to vary in cases where people had been killed by dogs so okay so you can't actually identify a pit bull by breed because it's not really a recognizable breed breed. How do how do they get away with banning it then if you can't identify what is your banning well if the that's the problem is is that there is no way to identify something as a pit bull? Oh No. I'm sorry officer you think this is a pit bull this American Staffordshire terrier or whatever you say also oh this dog killed somebody. It must be a pit bull in bears resemblance at all yeah yeah so is the dog kills somebody. It's a pit bull. That's how you do it yeah second. There are millions of pit bulls in the the U._S.. Right now most are loving family members so what causes a could pitbull to go bad the same study pointed out a host of factors that led to people being being killed by dogs. Most dogs who kill people share common backgrounds. They're usually left chained up outside away from the family where they would develop normal social. You'll behaviors towards people it really is tough to master human social interactions. Just ask any introvert like himself. That's funny. <hes> many are also so abused by their owners. Most people are killed by dogs tend to be small kids wandering the dogs property and the dog who's never seen anyone else in suddenly trapped freaks out according to this is another thing is is that ladies and gentlemen don't just walk up to a dog with your hand stuck out and expect the dog to be fine with that you gotta give give give the dog a little room not every dogs this way. Most dogs are going to be fine like the vast majority of dogs. If you wander up hey puppy and you got the handout. Even if you get it out to smell or whatever you've got going on most most we find with most will be fine. Yeah there will be exceptions and but you get bit. You'RE GONNA be like that happened happened to me. I was doing everything right no you weren't you weren't according to Dr Heckman. Some people also get pit bulls precisely because they have a reputation as is a vicious dog <hes> they then house them in these exact conditions and boom before you know it you have a perfect storm headed on a collision course for eventual disaster of course some dogs do attack outside of these circumstances for the most part though dog death spoiled down to a simple factor mismanagement and unfortunate circumstances the good news we can guard against this as a society but maybe not how you'd think the another thing I'd like to say is when you get a dog and it's young take it around kids introduce it to the kids. Let it see because it they don't necessarily understand not every dog understands why these little full human like creatures make all this noise and run around and it's frustrating to them so you know you got to socialize the animal with kids another thing take it around people of other races because they otherwise they don't know I mean dogs dogs have been with us for fifty thousand years and they determine you know this particular tribe or that particular tribe is their tribe and they you know the the smells the look you know whatever of that tribe they got it. They understand the other tribes are a threat which they probably were a threat yeah back then they might they may very well have been so help them out and just introduced them to different people different genders different ages different races different all the stuff just so they get an idea of what's going on and they don't freak out on it makes makes perfect sense to me. It does when you think about it dog breed specific legislation. Does it really work and a word now. Some places like Manitoba. Actually we've seen successes with breed specific legislation many other places though they failed why it turns out there are several reasons the major reason why breeds in specific excuse me <hes> legislation work is that it really doesn't treat the cause of the problem. The cause is not pit bulls themselves the causes mismanagement by <unk> owners many of whom happen to be attracted to scary dogs like pit Bulls and put them in high risk environments that as they said leaving them outside chained up but focusing on the thing that isn't causing the problem local governments are actually shifting resources away from more effective preventions like finding and fixing bat owner situations furthermore breed specific legislation trains people to view the entire breed as bad but it's just not the case yeah it never was and you know that's one one of the things that that I always thought was ridiculous about about pit bull bands because you'd hear about it about one every every year or two some city was banning pit bulls because of you've a pit bull went crazy and it was never the pit bulls in the first place it was it was the owners abusing the dogs. It's the same concept as I'm GONNA. Ban <hes> guns or you know whatever it is that they do. I'd like to point out that there is one gender in America that commits more than eighty percent scent of the violent crime really. Should we not do something about that gender ban them bad band that gender I mean this is you're talking about. Eighty percent of of the violent crime in the United States is committed by males males lock them all up but as a male I I'm just sitting here going. That's those violent violent people not me. I didn't do it right. I didn't either banned.

We've been talking about dogs. Here's this animal that has shared with us for tens of thousands of years. It's difficult to nail down exactly win dogs and man sort of hooked up but it probably started with wolves hanging around for the scraps or you know some canine. Let's let's just husak terminology way back in pre history yeah way back in pre history probably fifty thousand years is the numbers I've heard but I've seen people posit one hundred thousand years ago and I don't see why not they call what we are. Modern men and modern man likely existed for two hundred thousand years so one one hundred thousand of those years we had no interactions really with dogs except to try to hunt him down and kill them and I think that probably for a a long time the dogs would hang out get the straps and they'd we'd probably take a few here and there for for food or you'd you'd feed in the straps that you knew you couldn't keep and then when times get tough you take the ones that <hes> you probably take males you know how breeders are you know. Any livestock is done you take the males you leave the females and you know those kind of things and over time they became probably the kids went out and played with them. Some of the puppies could happen 'cause plane puppies visa's Fund and then you know some of the dogs hung around others became as they became adults more more shy of of humans if they're if they're exposed those two humans as puppies they're they're more likely to be domestic just right and then <hes> just over time they they sort of self selected the ones that like humans more kind of hung around more the ones that disliked humans went away and the distance yeah those kind of things and so anyway we're reading this article here about what is the most dangerous breed. It's from untamed science dot Com and I think it's been great. They really go over some of the <hes> the best stuff and then I wanNA talk to you about docking tails hails. That's one thing that you mentioned a couple of segments back that I just didn't understand anything. Why people do it Yep? Let me just finish up the article real quick <hes> so finally finally banning one breed won't solve the bad owner problem because if you outlaw one breed they'll just find another one and ladies and gentlemen think back over time which was the bad dog breed in the sixties. The seventies the eighties nineties. I'd venture to say the bad dog breed in the sixties was probably just me guessing icing here. I wasn't alive German shepherds the seventies Dobermans the eighties rottweilers the nineties pit bulls. Maybe yeah that's pretty much been pit bulls ever pickles ever since let's see let's see for example if you outlaw the American pit bull terrier than someone may just get a Presa assert canario or Connie Corso. There's a big mastiffs instead to other dog breeds with vicious reputations concourses Chai Kandic canticles animal so what's the most dangerous drug breeding the world the surprising answer none dangerous breeds like pit bulls or not anymore aggressive shift towards people than any other dog breed on the on their own as we saw the dog aggression study the fact is they do 'cause most deaths these that does does point to a larger problem dog owners. It's actually a complex interplay between genetics that give dogs the tools to be dangerous and people who actively early nurture these qualities where they might not otherwise have developed so that's really the issue. It's owners instead of the the dogs themselves. Dogs are dogs. The owners are making them do this right so about tail. Docking people tend to get whipped up about <hes> ear clipping and tail docking and it's not that I'm I wouldn't claim that these things are necessary anymore. So we have a doberman and both these things is true in them. I didn't do that to him but I know the people who did the we he was. He was destined to be a show dog. He's gorgeous his feet S- play out a little bit now you can say well. That's ridiculous reason not to be confirmation whatever well well it isn't a ridiculous reason because they have a breed standard and that's why I've got a gorgeous dog who's kind of duck footed and he's great at the House. He's fine fine. He's a pet he gets to do what he should have been doing all along which is hanging out with us and he's got his ears cropped a point up just like dobermans would and he's going to study little tail which he wags when he gets to play and you know that kind of thing but why would you cut the tail on this part of its spine for God's at seic. Why would you do that? Why it's there's a there's good questions first off? It's there have been a certain you know you gotta wonder under what about some of these studies. Some studies say it doesn't matter at all other studies say the animal feels pain differently now that it's tails been in duct or whatever the reason they started we're doing it was a variety of reasons in the past. Basically if a dog is a fighting dog you don't WanNa leave a tail out there for the other dog to chomp on. If the dog is a guard dog you don't want an attacker to be able to seize them by the tail and whip around remember. There are very few dogs that are as heavy he is a full grown man and if there are hunting dog you don't want them to have a long tail when they go out on the brush because if they're they get excited you know like a hunting dog loves to hunt like nothing you've ever seen you pull out a gun. They know what it is. They're ready to go. They like tearing at the door to get <music> out and their tail is whipping back and forth at a tremendous rate so they're excited. They've got something cornered or they're pointing at something or whatever it is that they're doing their tail. L. Smacks up against a sapling or tree and breaks. You know it's a small spine. It happens all the time another one that I don't find signed to be the most convincing as long haired dogs have long hairs on their tails and so if you get rid of the tail than you have less long to clean I mean I'm not so sure about that to be clear doc details. These days are all all about aesthetics all about preference now. I know that the American Kennel Club claims that you don't have to dock your details or clippers or whatever in order to win shows now I would say that the people who do these shows now. I heard a but in in yes there's a big but the people who do these shows have an expectation that the ears entails weadock so we didn't have to in my family didn't have to it wasn't my family but anyway the people the my mother was working with didn't have to dock this dog's ears and tail. They just decided to do that now. I prefer the ears tails to be done and the reason I prefer that is because I don't WanNa have to clean ears out on a regular basis. You know these yeast infections and that kind of thing and I don't have to deal with the broken tail on a dog but you gotta understand. Everybody's got their biases and I know I was raised with his bias. I'm clear on that. I was raised with breath dogs that we had schnauzers Dobermans rottweilers. I the only thing that had any detail at all was <hes> my mother's Manchester terrier which it looks like a little doberman anyway. Have you ever seen one of these. I'm not sure if you think about a min pin miniature pinscher they kind of like a bigger version of that okay so all you have to research this for yourself ladies and gentlemen you have to determine. I don't look at dogs like people I think that you're you know when it comes to your young son. You shouldn't go ahead and give them a circumcision because at some point in his life he's going to be able to make that decision on his own so you shouldn't do it. That's my that's my belief and my but I consider dogs to be property best. I can tell they don't really have the sense to have their own volition so so I prefer to tell them what to do and I make the decisions for them. I decide they're going to get vaccines. I decide their ears are going to be clipped and I decided their tails would be docked. I've never done it myself. I've never clicked a cat's claws off but I've had a cat that was given to me most of the animals that I've ever had in my life they arrived. It's yeah you know and I mean you could choose to call the dog that I have a rescue. I think I think it's really hip at this point to call things rescues but he was Kennel dog and now he's happy to be in a house and you know we're we're working on potty training and making all those things happen. It's it's a little harder with an eighteen month bulldog but you know if you have if you have thoughts on dangerous dogs or why ear cropping tail dockings unacceptable.

How do they react to that? The chats very happy to be included. Chen likes to be chatted about so in this case case apparently Uncle Sam's back at <hes> trying to knock on the back doors your computers yeah. They're they're still going at it. I'll try to read the story here. My tablet will cooperate <hes> so this is from ars Technica Attorney General William Barr says that technology firms can and must put back Dorsett encryption so can and must yeah this is <hes> this has been asked for before by the government the the the Justice Department has been asking for this since the early nineteen nineties. You know what would happen if you put back doors in and then allow the Justice Department to collect that information on how to get in those back doors then heck sores. What do they call them? Black hat hackers yeah black hat hackers will find a way to get into those very same well. They'll I will not only find a way they'll find the door. They'll find a way in the door or they'll find a way into the justice. Department's Computers Get <music> all the TS and then release them on the Internet and then everybody's all everybody's back business then everybody can can decrypt everybody's but they haven't thought this through apparently early well they've thought through they don't care what does the government care if your computer is hacked into and available to WHO <hes> various folks care about your safety and they don't they don't that's the answer that does take a little time for people to to process but they don't they don't care about your this is not about your safety at all. This is about about law enforcement wants to have access to information freely whenever they unwanted sure it preferably without a warrant and they lose information relatively quickly and easily. It's not like <hes> you know. It's not like they. They don't have this information gets gets passed around and that kind of thing happens when humans have information they pass it around. It's not information if nobody has it. That's true you know the I should probably just get into the story then Yep so from Ars Technica U._S.. Attorney General William Bar today which today was last week launched a new front in the feds ongoing fight against consumer encryption railing against the common security practice and lamenting the quote unquote victims gyms in this week quote the deployment of warrant proof encryption is already imposing huge costs on society bar claimed in remarks mark are the huge costs that my encryption that I use on a regular basis like every single day if you use whatsapp if you use telegram mm-hmm if you use any messaging APP that isn't s._M._S.. What do you think that I the facebooks I._M.? As encrypted <hes> Facebook Messenger is is is encrypted now kind of there. There's supposed to be moving to full end to end encryption. I don't think they've finished that yet but it's in progress. Look at all you you get doers out there using encrypted software beyond that beyond that look at going to Amazon or Ebay or making a purchase online using your bank's website using your banks app on your phone just checking your balance moving your money from from savings to checking all of that realize realized encryption to and you want to weaken that security yeah I mean let's just weaken some more security as though <HES> <hes> why not just handouts you're logging information to your bank account yeah just yeah just posted on on the bulletin board at the laundromat. See How long that lasts right and I'm sure that will break the cops hearts if you get your your bank account broken into because it won't change their life at all yeah they're. They're not gonNA care because that's not what this is about they. They just want to get what they want whenever they wanted sure I mean having the ability to put a subpoena in and get this information not good enough yeah getting it with warrant not good enough getting without a warrant may be good enough getting getting it whenever they want with with not even having to ask that's that's their ideal. They you WANNA be able to go in and just sit down at their computer and say I want Joe Blow's financial records and get them instantly without talking talking anybody or doing anything. It's like N._C._I._S. Yeah. They wanted to be like it is on television. Pull it right up so this tablets little small because this website isn't mobile friendly so this was bars claiming remarks at a cybersecurity conference last last week which one they didn't. I figured you would know just because you're all in into all of this stuff. Could you explain that if between a black hat white hat hacker tonight a well a black hat black had white had her basically which side they're playing yeah. White hat is the so called good guys they're. They're doing things like penetration testing going into a company's systems finding out where the vulnerabilities are so that company can fix them. The black hat is going in to exploit that company to that company that person whatever to get what information they can to sell it onto to perform from whatever other crimes are. They're gray hats <hes> no there's there's a there grey areas. Okay I know one. I don't think anyone ever Oh really yeah. I just wondered if there were any other color hats. I know that there's a there is a red hat out there but that's that's for Lennox red. Hat is the name of Lennox Company. Yeah okay so gone not to be confused with trump's Raddatz. Trump has a red hat. He does have a red hat. Okay this is not this red hat all right so Barr added that encryption quote seriously degrades law enforcement's ability to detect and prevent a crime before it occurs end unquote as well as maybe grades I mean as though this has ever happened for you can't degrade something. They haven't happened right. Okay the F._B._I.. is making has been making seeing this claim for years that their so called going dark. They're losing access to information that they think they wanna have though the claim is bogus. They've even getting more information than ever. They might as well clean it because then that might get them what they want to get. Let's go to the phones here yet. Julian calling from North Carolina Julia Neuron Freetalklive.

Live on on Youtube so we may be getting listeners from these places that that don't realize that we're also so on radio stations yeah and the only place that these things go out is unfortunately twitch and some of the video so our video streams we don't have because it that has video as a component. We don't have the ability to drop that off so in a lot of cases these are the the youngsters occupying these video platforms that most most want to hear themselves say these things so they may not necessarily know that they're not getting on the air on two hundred radio stations when they do that stuff but <hes> yeah we <hes> we we did cover the topic of religion pretty thoroughly on Saturday nights. Somebody called in and and <hes> well push my buttons and we're off to the races so there you go. Let's go to the phones. You've got dave cullen in from Colorado Dave. You're on free. Talk Live Guy I have. I have an update on the New Hampshire. Laurie lists situation. We've talked about that for right. The Laurie List sorry list the list of New Hampshire police officers with credibility problems so you know that hat I decided like Oh yeah more bad news about lease and there anything practical about this <hes> the government tried to keep secret was on of course the guest <hes> well now <hes> someone is trying to make practical use of this Laurie list scandal <hes> a gentleman of fishermen fishermen who <hes> was arrested in the I had a trial thousand seven or at least it was the two thousand seven case he was he was I guess convicted <hes> <hes> salting police officer and <hes> so now he's saying oh here's what some of the officers uh-huh testified at trial there there were they were Laurie. How did he put it? They were <hes> they turned out. They turned out to be on the Laurie list. Well the headline reads quote man claim State Withheld Lori this conduct info on to Lebanon police officers unquote that implies that they were on the loyalist in some form or fashion but that's not precisely what I can say at this point just just right the state could have withheld that they were not on the list which doesn't seem particularly relevant. You wouldn't think so but this is this. Should I mean they should open up all kinds of cans of worms in a constructive way for the state <hes> because now you're gonNA have all kinds of lawyers looking at this going oh I could do for my client. I there are all kinds of people who've been convicted saying uh-huh. Maybe I should go for an expunged or maybe I could go to that or maybe I do or what whatever you know. Some other states have this. Laurie list kind of thing I I know I don't know I mean you would be surprised if they don't right. I mean you know usually I've heard a few other states.

The Free Report Online today at gold silver dot com eight hundred five two five nine five six ICIER T._A.. GOLD SILVER DOT COM so we've been talking about <hes> U._S.. Attorney William Bar who's been calling for so-called what he calls those responsible encryption and this is something that the governments have been calling for for a twenty five years what they really want is a back door into encryption so that they can read anything anything. That's currently encrypted whether it be your facebook messages would to your mom or your facetime chats or what's up or you're her shopping on Amazon anything that's encrypted. They want that information. No matter what the information is they want the they want all the information and you know. I don't know why they want all this information. It's I'm pretty boring guy. When it comes down to all look he's gone on Amazon and he's a U._S._B.? CABLE BECAUSE THEY THEY WANNA have access to get into it anytime they want without what should scare you is that they want. They want to have this access without necessarily surly having a warrant yep that's exactly what they want and the way they're proposing to do and by the way they lose information all the time if you give if they get this information mation they're gonNA lose it and hackers all around the world are GONNA use it to get everybody's computers and it's a terrible idea last month. The Department of Homeland Security lost a whole bunch engine of information on border crossings on the U._S.. Mexico border you cross that border. Your personal data is out there now great yeah yeah they it. It happens all the time. Yes they do that information. Big Corporations lose it too. Oh Yeah it's just another good reason not to to use these these organizations so Michael. You are a computer expert guy. What can people do to prevent the government from getting their data or anybody forgetting their data? Frankly <hes> obviously the biggest thing to do is just not generate the data in the first place but that's really really difficult to do on the Internet today second beyond beyond that is just insist on uncompromised end to end encryption wherever you go whether that's between you and your bank or between you and your friends on facebook book it has to be end to end with nobody listening in on either side or in the middle because if they put these back doors in the encryption not only well the government be able to get into it but hackers will be able to get into it too and this is this is something that's important because they've already put back doors into the phone system. They hackers Zor already getting in there yeah there was there was a big diplomatic fallout back in two thousand five two thousand six when hackers got into the Greek cell phone network okay and they were listening to calm they were listening to cell phone conversations among Greek government officials like the prime minister and all that so they were saying things that people wanted to hear yeah so hackers were listening to the Greek government officials through a back door that was for law law enforcement use <hes> interesting so this has happened before and they wanna make it happen again the while I know that the Puerto Rican governor was just brought down down by leaked chat logs. I don't know how those chat logs were leaked or any where they came from or anything like that but they could have come from anywhere probably his computer wherever and this is one of the things that disturbs me. The most about government snooping is that I know they don't want. They don't want to know anything about me because I'm not that. I'm not exciting citing and boring. I you know I'm just a married guy that doesn't cheat on his wife and runs around and you know does things that this house your kid you ever area dog. You've got nothing going on. That's fun but the judges the politicians the captains of industry many of these guys are not all pure whereas the driven snow and if you can get information on these people then you can control them to some extent blackmail and so so well. That's a <hes> that that becomes a much more interesting situations so I don't know anything about this governor in Puerto Areco but I know that he's getting lambasted right now for some chat logs where he was you know they were completely inappropriate. Writing may may have been the he may have been the best governor in the history of Puerto Rico for all line now. I don't believe it but he could have been and clearly. Somebody got a hold of some information that made him look bad well. There's information information. We'll make anybody look bad you me every politician and that information can be used to control so we you want this in the N._S._A.. The C._I._A. to have information that can control politicians judges and captains of industry because that takes the sort sort of diverse checks and balances that we've been told our whole lives are so important and concentrates power into one or two intelligence agencies and makes those people in that agency vary very power full and if that's not bad enough not only if you put back doors encryption not only only the U._S.. Government agencies get access to all of that foreign government agencies will have access to it organized crime. We'll have access to it. You may not be interesting on your own but you know people's credit card numbers get stolen those things retail value of about fifty cents on the dark web so you you steal enough credit card numbers in aggregate they get sold in bulk bulk and then <hes> criminals try those out in some of them work some of them don't how does the United State's government passed this whole backdoor often. They're saying we want access but they send their computers around the world and then they're saying what to China or which governments get access which ones I don't have to be part of NATO. Do you have to be part of the U.. N.. Do you have to be part of you know which which organizations get it which ones don't because I don't know but I do know that they are spies in the world <hes> so do you want Russia. Do you want China. Do you want maybe even North Korea ran to have access to your data on your computer if you do you are even more boring than I like. All you're doing is sitting there playing solitaire or something. It's by the way too much cheaper solitaire machine then whatever you paid for your desktop. If that's what you get on your phone now yeah you don't have to do that. They went back doors to that to the number eight five five four five two zero three seven three three.

I I'm very interested in this sort of notion of creating your own wealth from <hes> wherever you want to be of course it's really attractive to to think you can be on the beach in Fiji and work for an hour a day and and make enough money to live for ever. I guess I've kind of done it here with Free Talk Live. We could do it anywhere in the world then again. You'd have to drag in a long to do it but speaking of anywhere in the world world there are some people that are deciding to coalesce to congregate in a place in the world. You probably wouldn't expect them to go. The desert the inhospitable pitiful desert of Nevada. Oh from the Washington Times storm area fifty one turnout overwhelms Nevada town Las Vegas. Let's the closest place to this basically at first the owner of the quirky alien themed Motel Down Nevada highway from the mysterious area fifty one didn't take posting for a prank facebook event too seriously. Nobody took it seriously not not at first I then her phone started ringing. It doesn't stop our phone stopped ringing Connie west of the little odd lay in a little alien illegal alien n <hes> in toll the the the the Las Vegas Sun the ten room motel bill is one of the few businesses in Rachel a town of fifty four residents fifty four residents now gaining celebrity status among aviation the Asian and U._F._O.. Enthusiasts attracted by the posting about a September twentieth event dubbed Storm Area Fifty one. They can't stop all of us. They can't stop all of us. More than one million. People have responded to the Internet posting calling for people to narrow to run now. I don't know anything about neurotic do you have you seen it some kind of anime thing where you run with your arms holding your arms behind your I've seen it I've seen them the they have these characters rushing rushing headlong sort of had had forward body forward but arms backwards and you know it's a cartoon. It's yeah it's a cartoon I not. I'm sure you're GONNA do very well running like that in real life but but they're calling for people to narrow to room run at three A._M.. Into the remote U._S. US Air Force Test Area Nevada desert that has long been the focus of U._F.. Conspiracy theories the face forward arms back running style style is favored by characters in an anime series now route to make sure I get it right. They can't stop all of us the post jokes. Let's see them aliens yeah. Let's see the Malians all right. The military is warning people not to try to enter the once top secret cold war our site which is posted <hes> m patrol as part of the vast Nevada test and training range so I'm thinking about going to this I like planning to go to this is <hes> actually you'd better book your hotel soon. Because what I've heard is that all of the three hotels within a hundred miles they're booked solid it already so well one hundred miles Nevada's within excuse me vegas eighty four miles from the fifty mile whatever and Las Vegas can can handle this yeah. Are there a million hotel rooms in Las Vegas. I don't I don't know the answer to that but the Internet does <hes> but however her Las Vegas of any American city <hes> can can handle this better than it how many can absorb a lot of people. I'm sure rooms in you better plan on US though because people if this gets serious than than plane tickets will sell out today there are about a hundred and fifty thousand hotel rooms in Las Vegas not a million not a million not a million but not even you really couldn't even bunk up with this number if I can get a power outlet. I'm in pretty good shape. That's about all I can say yeah. You'RE GONNA find one of those in the middle of the desert no <hes> but you know any any any one of these locations that I can just plug dug into I'll bring my own <hes> extension cord and I can plug in and then I'll be okay. <hes> I have a place to sleep. I'll have to be climate controlled. You know that kind of thing. I'll be in pretty good shape but I'm very curious as to who I am going to meet at this event a cover as a as a journalist this is this is is amazing. I definitely wouldn't want to be there yeah. I WanNa be there absolutely because I think it's going to be a fascinating but I say this if you plan this this far in advance if there are alien bodies or whatever they've got going on at area fifty one when they open them right. Why wouldn't they have moved them already? I mean they're not that dumb. Where would they move them to? I mean I don't know that they have them there. In the first place one of these underground bunkers that they have outfitted for the president when the big one comes yeah I. I don't know I don't know anyone any one of any location is better than and the place where all of the <hes> Internet loonies have decided to to storm in a certain fashion like the government does not want to set up machine-gun nests casts and mow down a bunch of Mall Ninjas. No they don't but you you can be sure they're going to they're going to have some kind of military response well. I Ah yes so I hope they have some kind of response and I suspect that responsibly nonlethal and maybe they've just got those are they got those trucks that they can you know shoot you with sound waves and then you begin to feel ill the yeah the the ones that the ones that caused you paying yeah. I've seen those there's a there's ones that just make you feel sick and <hes> there's all kinds of non lethal stuff that they can do. This'll be great training exercise for them to employ the rubber bullets and the to bring out toys tasers and you know the big electrifying nets or whatever the God they have. I have no idea what they've got but they can handle this and if they don't show up then yeah this place is gigantic by the way it's not like if you're just gonNA run through the fence and say oh there's the building with the aliens in it. Now a million people were there. They can do just about anything. Admittedly they cannot stop them all but I suspect they've already moved all this stuff. Whatever what if if they had anything there in the first place and I suspect they don't want the aliens the fact that we know we believe that there are aliens at area fifty one says all I need to know about? They're not being aliens at area fifty one. If I mean you don't get to be a colonel in the United States military by being tell mass and you know any colonel can be like well. It looks like you're on the Internet that they believe that there are aliens at area fifty one and the have believed that for thirty years so it looks like we're moving this stuff to that remote base and nome in Barrow or you know one of the many islands someplace that you can't get too. There's a there was I think military bases off key west that nobody can really get to know the dry Tortuga is at the very least had a military base. That's a national park now. There might be others there. I did see a military base on Key West but it may be shut down. I it doesn't make a difference. They have remote places far away from everywhere where they can put whatever it is that they that you might find line. That's embarrassing them at area fifty one sticking in Guantanamo Bay nonetheless. I think this is going to be darn interesting yeah I. I really WANNA see how this place okay. So you know you're right. You could just take it out. An aircraft carrier. Just put out the ocean good luck finding then eight five five four five zero three seven three freetalklive.

A lot of them answered that will we affray to cross the border by we have to the U._S..

This is by Clifford Public Service. We are member analysts reported era line at Public Service Dot O._R._G.. Want to talk about what I want to talk about right. Now is area fifty one and a million people that have said that they are going to storm area fifty one. They can't stop us all. They can't stop us all. Let's see them aliens. Those are the quotes. I think this is just exciting. I mean the Internet has I can't think of any time in the past. The Internet has has come up with this site kind of idea. Let's all get together a huge. This is basically a giant flash. Mob and flash mobs are usually put put together in a more surreptitious fashion. This is a facebook post this. They're not usually announced publicly this. This is not only announced publicly but two and a half months in advance publicly right so every cop soldier sailor airman and marine within a thousand miles of area fifty one can easily be mustered up to do whatever it is that they need to do and other firm under a million people agreed they cannot stop them all however I think that the they just get rid of whatever the alien body or whatever it is. They claim that they that somebody thinks they might have there. Yeah you were saying that they could just move all the aliens out before the before September. Whatever the data's right they didn't even have to have a location to move them to put them out on a <hes> aircraft carrier? Try to find them now. Internet yeah try to storm in aircraft carrier with new Rudo run the routine around this is great <hes>. There's there's they've got other stuff here but they're basically people who know nothing about modern military techniques trying to storm and air force base in rural Nevada should be lots of fun going on with the article here from Washington Times after refusing for decades to acknowledge area fifty one even existed the CIA declassified declassified documents in two thousand thirteen referring to the eight thousand square mile installation by name and locating it on a map near the dry groom lake bed. This thing's things about eighty miles outside of Vegas by the way North West. The basis been testing ground for top secret aircraft including the Youtube spy plane. Now I happen happen to know a pretty famous YouTube pilot not that there's very famous in the sense of Youtube pilots right well. There weren't that many youtube pilots now. This guy happens seems to have had more time in the air in the youtube than anybody than any other pilot ever and let's see in the nineteen fifties. Let's say top secret including nineteen fifties and then later the B. Two stealth bomber any attempt to illegally access the area is highly discouraged. The Air Force said in a statement released discouraged edged. I like that kind of <hes> verbiage because it doesn't threaten out outwardly outright blatant in your face threat right. It's just you should really think about your life choices before you do yeah yeah. It's a bad idea so it just it's amazing so this little this little hotel here the little odd lien alien. Whatever this hotel is apparently just being inundated with calls? They've got ten rooms. They've been booked solid since the day after this facebook post and and there's phone still ringing off the hook goes on here. It says the West West <hes> this is the person that runs the the hotel in I think motel no tell motels what this west is apprehensive about. What might happen if a big crowds arrive? It's a little a little scary to think that many people could descend on a town of fifty four people. How can you prepare down the state highway? Three seventy five dubbed the extraterrestrial Highway Linda Looney at the Alien Research Center Gift Shop and Campsite told The sun she was concerned about the effect of the facebook I post. I don't think it's just a passing fancy. She said Lincoln County Sheriff Keri. Lees said he doesn't expect many people to actually show up well. All I intend to if they're GONNA show up. I'm going to be there just to talk to him. I want to get some video. I want to get some audio. I want to call in interviews. Yeah the county spokesman Ben Rally tallied up one hundred eighty four hotel rooms in the county but Lee said five hundred or a thousand sudden visitors could create traffic parking congestion issues in a jurisdiction with twenty six sworn sheriff's deputies in about fifty two hundred permanent residents mostly in rural towns including Kelly and Tae P._o.. Che Panetta and Alamo bringing pull these people I mean even ten thousand people coming out there to of the desert therein their one hundred eighty four hotel rooms. They've all got to go. Stay back in Vegas or throw up or throw up tents something. They're worried about a thousand people showing up. Let alone a million. I mean many factors higher. I don't know how you get a million people in there that it's a two lane road it just is a giant parking lot yeah well. The good news is most of the land there is flat most of the land. There isn't the kind of thing you're going to sink into so you could probably park your front wheel drive car just on the side of the road yeah probably so and you know it'd be fine. I don't know I think the started out as a joke but there there are many there may be enough people taking it seriously and it could be a problem. The Sheriff said someone is going to get hurt and people may go to jail. It's not anything to joke about. Let's talk about the jail for a second how they don't they're not gonNA have enough jail space for they're not gonNA have enough room in the back of their cop cars. I mean doc. What did I say twenty-six Sheriff's Deputies in this county twenty-six Sheriff's deputies no police likely and this is a county that's? I don't know how I didn't look at how big the county was. I did look up where this place was. In Nevada County is out there. They tend to be real big. Every every everything's still big out there yeah county map of Nevada and I mean I can only imagine what happens if this many people show up yeah if this is in Nye county which it looks like it could be it could be Clark. Clark is huge wjr likely the size of guests in Connecticut Clark County is is we're Las Vegas. That's correct. Every everything else is outside of isn't it. It looks like it's closer closer to Lincoln County which is probably the size of say. I'm just guessing here. I just gotTa Spit Ball this from looking at the size in Nevada. I'm guessing that this is the size of say New Hampshire and Vermont combined as far as I know I'd have to get a map to to look and confirmative as I I know the area fifty one is in that big green one there that night county county it could be they actually mentioned this P- poaching poce poce whatever the town is here in the articles so I'm tending to think it's the one next to that Pinaka yeah maybe that oh OK P P oce be OCE Kellyanne Tapio Che `Pinaka and Alamo or in this county of fifty two hundred permanent residents. This town down has fifty four people in it. Basically you know there's probably a diner this in a gas station and the Gift Shop Gift. Ah The gift shop on the campground headed out towards area fifty one so you can go there and take a picture of the gate that says get the hell out of here my guesses. I don't know I haven't been to any of these places. I've never gone to area fifty one. If this is a real thing I'm planning on going out there and seeing it. I may not now. I kind of want ago. I don't want to die over this. I can assure you but I'm curious and you know I mean the basic. I think you'd better if you'RE GONNA go. Oh you better bring your own sleeping arrangements. Yeah you pretty much have to I mean you could you could stay in Vegas but you you still have to drive out there and you better start driving at three o'clock doc in the morning at three o'clock in the mornings when they start when they start doing it. Yeah you better God knows. I don't even know so three o'clock in the morning is six o'clock in the morning East Coast Time East coasters will have an advantage because some of them might actually get up at six o'clock in the morning to go to work so showing up for this wouldn't be that terrible well. I think the government even the government is this dumb the you know that we already know that they can move whatever they would need to move out of there if the best thing for them to do is to just open up the gates and get ready tour all right. Come on in everybody. We're going to walk through going to take a look at here's where the here's the big big airstrip. You know. There's the there's the control tower stealth bomber.

I'll turn it down. I do have a loud voice. Everybody tells me I'll tell me with that. Loud voice <music>. I'm going for it. The the the issue to me is I really want a Republican form of government that that doesn't involve itself but in the protection of individual rights so you mean you want this constitutional government that was sort of laid out in the United States federal constitution many many many long years ago that they <hes> you know really didn't stick to very well right. I know I don't actually want back. I'll say I want one. That's similar to that but that has that the the correct improvements I mean number one the violating the constitution. You ought to be a punishable well. This is one thing that they'll tell you in a lawyer in school school. They'll tell tell you a law that has no punishment is not yes. It's it may as well not even be a law. You can call the Constitution United States the highest law on the land but there is an art in there any form of punishment for anybody who violates it yeah well the big issue. Is that it it's it's a tiny tiny trade. It's A and I'm talking about. You're talking about an imaginary tiny government because the United States will not not in that what they have i. I'm going Ford five orders of magnitude larger than it should that'd be. I you know I'm really serious about this.

I moved here to the Shire because there's other people around who take liberty just as seriously as I do.

I've always wanted to change the world so I moved to the Shire to join people who who were actually working towards doing the same thing.

It's mark with you and Michael and and we're we've been talking about this situation where a whole bunch of people are intending to show up at area fifty one and storm the place yes but you're welcome to call in and talk about whatever you want and Wesley. The G. has called in the Wesley. What's on your mind? Hey Mark I <hes> I saw that you made a radio show about. It's about a week ago and <hes> I'm <music>. I'm on a plant based Diet and I've been on for about a year. So if you have any questions on you can you can ask me like well. Do you have any questions I don't honestly remember the <hes> the show on the plant based diets whatever that might have been but <hes> you know we we talk about <hes>. I'm happy to talk about anything. The what happened was Ian and I went to Burger joint in Las Vegas. It was ridiculously over-priced Christ but everything is it's Las Vegas and we both got one of these impossible burgers. That's that's the new Vegan Burger that the the impossible companies come out right and there's another one called the beyond Burger and I can't speak to the beyond they didn't have it but I presume that it's a you know a competitor editor to this impossible burger and thus it is as good as the impossible burger. I am no advocate for the the Vegan folks or anything like that however I am a fair person I believe I believe myself to be fair. Every Jack Hole on the Internet thinks they're affair too by the way and I would say that this burger was as good as a preformed burger that you get at the grocery store made of meat. That's what I've heard I. I've only read reviews of the impossible Burger because we don't yet have a burger king here. It's supposed to open soon but whatever whatever it is that it's supposedly it's very difficult to tell the difference between the impossible burger and a regular ground beef burger. I would call it a fine burger. I wouldn't call it like the Best Burger verner in town or anything but usually that has that has a lot to do with sort of the cheese the toppings the the grill preparation and things like like that. Have you tried one of these <hes> Wesley. I've never tried the beyond burger or the possible breaker I know that at the <hes> <hes> The Monitor dot co OP grocery store and King Monday has those beyond me yeah yeah sorry for mispronounce no problem they do have <hes> ah beyond me and they also have like other beacon mock beats. I've tried Vegan pizza with the vegan cheese and honestly yeah I. I couldn't tell the difference it was. It was pretty good. How long had you been Vegan or whatever not not meeting whatever whatever your terminology used to wish to describe yourself with how long had you been at before you had the pizza right so I had the pizza when I was in Manchester and a couple of weeks ago and I've been Vegan for about eight months before that okay and I've been like kind of like a traditional Vegan you know like getting potatoes and rice and beans you know not really eating these as I plant based meats or anything right and I think that first off this is what the Vegetarians and vegans of the world need to do is they need to provide those of us who want to eat meat with some alternative and second stop telling lies like this is cheese? You know when it's is just something horribly horribly. If it's not my cheese then it's not cheese right and I you know I'm not into this. My philosophy is this is that that first off the amount of meat that of the average American eats is probably too much. It's probably not a healthy amount and that the that livestock has necessary for a functional sort of farm ecosystem a lot of people WANNA want to get rid of livestock. Entirely you need livestock to tread the the the ground and coupon it and do all kinds of stuff like that but I think that's probably there's still probably a way eight way way too much livestock and the factory farming that goes on <hes> chickens and hogs. I don't think it's as much with cattle but then again I don't know that much about cattle we raise as them when I was a kid and they had plenty of pasture and all that stuff we just took him to the slaughterhouse and off. They went so you know I I really WanNa talk about the environment but I do agree that you know I think we both agree that people consume too much media and it has like sound effect on the environment. So what are you that somebody should know about a plant based Diet because I don't really have any questions. I guess I'm much more okay. Eh One question third with one thing. I've heard about plant based diets is that it's apparently I've heard that it's difficult to get enough of protein is that what do you do about it. It's not difficult to get protein on bayside one fact every plan has protein Nana's have protein apple approach to eating plants throughout the day or easy to get to accumulate a protein and <hes> sort of high in protein or like Broccoli beans and grains. Nobody's ever going to say Broccoli's bad for Korea. There's just never going to do it right right so broccoli is high in a lot of different nutrients also calories so that's a great that's a great combination and a lot of our life that they have you know a lot of vitamins and they're only like five calories per serving or something. It makes one wonder it's the Brussels sprouts and Broccoli and several other vegetables are basically from the same plant that has been bred to do different things things and the cruciferous vegetables is what they're called. I don't know off the top of my head. Maybe one of them's cauliflower baby I don't even know but it's interesting that they they have different sort of vitamin profiles than the others and they're basically the same plant weren't they bred to be different though they certainly were selected selected to be different. Yeah indeed well. You're not dying. I'm not dying. No I'll kind it's a hard thing I know I know that you can put nutrients and plans to Win Guardian you. Can I just spray them with like a like a nutrient supplement and then you can have a plant nutrient. That's interesting so what are some some of the things that people ask you about a plant based Diet while a lot of people do S._p.. Where do you think your protein on? Some of the people like fed fed people worried about where to get protein. Sometimes people ask me like well boy am am. I like okay fine. It's like it's healthy but it's going to be like so disgusting or something like no I in fact a lot of <hes> Vegan meals on. They're very quite a tasty because of all the different plants the each have their own kind of flavor and taste to them so you can have the very flavorful dish which is if you will. I think somebody's got to be ready for a real lifestyle. Change to say that you know I I'd like a medley of <hes> peppers and onions NHS and celery and whatever here rather than a nice big cheeseburger and I think that the the beyond Burger of the impossible ruger people are really taking the right route here which is finding plant based alternative to the food that people want to eat because I know if I've not not gone for a little while without eating. I'm getting hungry. I'm looking for Calorie. Intensive payoff comes from a certain set of tastes taste profile and that's where I'm going to be in. Nothing's going to change that all the <hes> at my house. We have a lot of green drinks is what my wife calls him. I come swamp water <hes> they are they. Are there plans that that have been run through a blender important ear right. It's it's basically a vegetable smoothie and they're good for four forty five minutes or so. It's like eating an apple then I'm hungry and then I have another one and then I'm hungry and you know could have some Tahini or are you can have some <hes> some nuts or something to stave off the hunger for a few hours at that point because that'll be helped. Write some really a good for that feeling full or like potatoes. They're the highest <hes> on this tidy index and things that are not so good smoothies because they they go through your system really fast yeah that makes sense well.

That's not worth complaining here at all. You have to forgetting. You're you're you're forgetting about the golden rule. He who has the gold makes the rules and and combined with might makes six right the contract is there but if you don't enforce you're right then and that's part of everything that I was gonna say that the ties into the the fifth area fifty one one thing showing up the whatever contract you have whether it's an ancient contract that you don't really see as a contract or it's one you signed with ink on paper this afternoon when you got your cell phone or whatever that you do believe in neither of them mean anything unless you're willing to show up and stand up for your for your rights with the last line of Defense being showing up with your body and so for instance showing up at area fifty one is it's one of the ways it's a model that should be used all across government. You don't have to show up and fight but if you show up and and just be present so that it's your scene and then and confront address the issue be seen refused to go away resist legally make work for them be like make them heard cats. Eventually you win if you look at that model it's like the the only model that's ever really one in these kind of things whether you're Gandhi or Martin Luther King Civil Rights struggle the only model that really ever works is when when people get that you know the American revolution you finally get fed up enough that you show up with your body. You know and you don't even have to fight. If you show up in significant again number. The other army walked away because they know they're going to die if they don't I will agree with that. Most of the major successes throughout human history three at least the recent history have had to do with people showing up and it doesn't have to be it likely will not be successful if you're ready to do violence or whatever but people that are committed and but at the same time you know large groups don't aren't very good at getting what they want because they they get tricked pretty easily so they're the famous quote from Alexander. Haig is let the march all they want as long as they continue to pay their taxes and what what happens is is that they'll concede right like the though they them those right the government <hes> people will say all right you can have what you want and and then everybody goes home and they do something that kind of looks like what you wanted them to do but everything just continues on as usual. I think that's a mistake. I suggest you don't March. I suggest you show up and you park your ass and you camp and you don't go any damn place until you've got everything that is yours and secured and then you go back to your normal life and the second they apt act up again you go back and smack him in the face once again until they can't take it anymore and remember the the difference between if you're on the right to uh without defining righteous when you're on the righteous side of something you got a lot more stamina in Tunis because the other side by definition he's a <hes> what's the word a mercenary and the mercenary is not going to stay and fight to in in the mud to the death uh when things get really caught when all they're getting to one hundred bucks or whatever they're getting. They're going to leave way before you leave. quit way before you quit. How hello how do you get most of the American people to actually stay up for much of anything season for a stranger things? Try and you're trying to do it all at once buddy. If if people when people see that there's a small group whether that's ten or twenty or two hundred that shows up and and and and stick two it doesn't get then then more will join the a few more will join in a few more will join and then the momentum will grow in pretty soon. It's an overwhelming momentum as opposed to the other models where we get a million man march and we we merchant million men in there for twelve hours and then it's all over well uh-huh anybody anybody can wait that out but if you if you go in <hes> you know you know sports that you can logistically support and and taste to it then more and more will continue to join you and the other stars tied. We'll start getting real worried real fast as they see the numbers continuing doing to increase as opposed to one big wave them and then gone so. I think it's worth mentioning at this point. It's certainly doesn't fit all your criteria but it's worth mentioning the bonus war. The bonus war was an event in. I think it's like the nineteen thirties might have been the nineteen twenty s I think it was the thirties okay and World War One vets were promised certain benefits and they wanted them early. Basically we're poor and we're hungry and we want our benefits now and they went to Washington D._C.. Many many hundreds if not thousands of them. I can't tell you thousands I wasn't prepared for this. They were camped all over the probably tens of thousands of him I guess and they camped out all over the recall the mall this big giant Grassy area in Washington D._C.. And and I think it was macarthur who led or Pat Macarthur in patent were involved in this attack on Americans <hes> which actually resulted in some deaths chiefs didn't they shoot some people. I don't think they shot them. I think they said some things on fire and maybe there's some trampling or something but it was a cavalry charge on Americans by Americans Akins for just Americans wanting some stuff from the government that they were promised now. Would I say that I don't think the government actually violated any contracts and that circumstance but people wanted what they wanNA. Go ahead David and your point is and I'm cutting you off. I'm setting you up a little bit but your and your point give my point is is that sometimes people get organized and the government will use military force against you right yeah right however what I would say that situation and then <hes> in my week knowledge of history there were I believe there was something known as the Whiskey rebellion which would have been something similar <hes> but if you take those two the situation in especially the one that you familiar with it and comparative to the model that I suggested I'm I'm GonNa speculate that they didn't <hes> they were. They were close host <hes> from what I know but I don't think they adhered as closely to the model that I laid out as I would have had would have said yes to them if they wanted to win <hes> their their <hes> their campaign there. Thanks for the call David I would recommend to people to check out Erica Chinua. Ths Book why Civil Civil Resistance Works is there's another author there but I don't have her name arrest <hes> but it's <hes> it's it's elucidating the circumstance why civil resist works. Don't you hate that feeling in the pit of your stomach. When the police pull you over most people have no idea how to handle it properly and they promptly get fed into the municipal fee generating meat grinder or maybe you recall that feeling you get when you go to the mailbox and see one or more letters from the I._R._S.?

If Spanish is your first language which we're about to start a daily Spanish edition of the daily hope broadcast. It's going to include the same inspiration on Practical Bible teaching that I've been sharing on daily hope for the past six years but it's going to be in Espanol. Here's a sample of what our Spanish speaking friends can look forward to hit him as we didn't live Ellen say similar Yan look at single blend near the borough status these answer some planets ballots will be in that nobody some planets that little doodle spirits. Would you help me get this word out to people who speak Spanish as their first language we have always had the desire to to share the good news of hope with everyone everywhere and with five hundred million people who speak Spanish in the world this will open up a brand new audience of people to hear about the love the joy and the peace of the hope of Jesus Christ. The Spanish broadcast will begin airing on September second on on Pastor Rick Dot Com. That's Pastor Rick Dot Com. Do you WANNA know the secret to accessing the abundant life. If God promises in scripture then stay tuned this is pastor Rick Daily hope the Audio Broadcasts Ministry of Pastor Rick Warren well today today we continue with our series called the keys to a blessed life in it rick shows us from God's word that peace and fulfillment in our life worth and relationships chips is available to each and every one of us if we're willing to do things God's way in just a few moments. We're going to tell you how you can get the life breath giving d._v._d.. Study Kit for this series you can find out more by going to pass direct dot Com or by texting the word daily to ninety nine zero zero zero zero while you listen to today's message here's Pastor Rick Warren with the final part of a message called Your Ministry of mercy now. Let me give you two more and these last two you have probably never ever considered as acts of mercy but Jesus taught mercy and even quotes Hosea six six both saying the reason you don't get this. You don't understand the full meaning of mercy so so let me give you two more six away that you can practice your ministry of mercy this week is this bill bridges of love to the unpopular build bridges of love to the unpopular. There are people in your circle people who live on your street read that nobody wants to hang out with people who you work with that. Everybody tells the joke behind their back. They may have those quirks or they may have a different lifestyle or they may have a different belief system or they may have a different religion or they may dress differently because of their culture or whatever but they're not on the in crowd. They're not popular. They're they're the outcast and this is a facet of your ministry. That's often overlooked overlooked building. A Bridge of love to the unpopular is what I call premeditated mercy now you often think when I say premeditated you think premeditated murder but I'm saying premeditated. Mercy involves intentionally they building friendships with people who don't have friends and intentionally building friendship with people who were unbelievers and intentionally a building friendships with people who seem on the edge are not as loved our as accepted in the mainstream because because of their religion their lifestyle their looks or whatever now why does God want us to build bridges of love to the unpopular and specifically unbelievers because you cannot win your enemies to Christ you can only win your friends and before somebody's going to accept Christ they've got to have a bridge to Christ and before they WanNa know Jesus credible they wanna know are you credible and before they know Jesus. It's a friend they WANNA know. Will you be my friend and long before anybody comes Christ. It's somebody's gotta be friend that person you cannot win in enemy to Christ you must win in them to yourself before you win them to cry. You become a friend. That's an act of premeditated mercy. Here's a good example all of it Matthew Chapter Nine the Bible says Matthew Who's one of the twelve disciples matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to to be a dinner guest nothing wrong with that but then it says along with his fellow tax collectors and many other notorious aureus centers now if you're in the I._R._S.. I apologize to you today so a little bit different today. You may be unpopular but you morning notorious center if you are a tax collector but in those days here's why tax collectors were considered notorious centers. They were allowed skim whatever they could get so tax collector for Rome could come in and say Caesar would say I want one canary from every household and and the tax collector could come in and say I need ten Harry from you and you had no recourse. There was nobody to appeal to you had to pay it. It was like extortion then he could pocket pocket nine and pass on one and so the worst job the most unpopular job because they were all cheats they were crooks. There were swindlers where the tax collectors and and they were right out there along with prostitutes and lepers and they didn't have drug pushers in those days but that kind of level of people that everybody despised so it says Matthew invites Jesus and his disciples to his dinner as dinner gas along with all of these people they'll repeat his fellow tax collectors and many other notorious centers. Here's the Pharisees. That's the religious leaders. They were indignant. Why does your teacher eat with such scum? They asked his disciples and when he heard this Jesus replied healthy. People don't need a doctor sick. People do go learn the meaning of the Scripture and he quotes Jose Essex six. I want you to be merciful. I don't want Your sacrifices this for I've come to call centers not those who think they're already good enough now. Follow me on the logic on this. The Pharisees are attacking Jesus for hanging out with the wrong crowd and Jesus says you know what your problem is guys. You don't understand the true nature of mercy because they thought mercy was simply forgiving people and helping people who need help no forget mercy also sue includes building bridges of love to the unpopular and Jesus says it here he says I'm going to a party and I'm going to party with people that nobody wants to hang out with the ill repute the unpopular the fringe the negative the criminals the riffraff. I'M GONNA go to a party. Jesus says why because I understand mercy and you don't and you don't and he says has gold learn the meaning of Jose Essex six now. I want you to notice because it got a lot of truth in here. It says Matthew invited circle. That word invited question question. When was the last time you invited unbelievers for dinner? That's an act of mercy. When was the last time you invited? Have you ever had any notorious centers in your home. Besides you the sides you you WanNa be merciful now. We're getting where the rubber meets the road. Do you even have any it close unbelieving friends do you if you don't. You're not like Jesus. The problem is as the longer you're a Christian the more you tend to hang out with other Christians and the fewer non believing fringe you get. How do you expect the good news to get out if you don't have any friends unbelievers and you're not inviting them over for dinner if you're not you don't understand what mercy's all about Jesus says go learn scriptures now notice it says says matthew invites these quote riffraff these unpopular the non loved people of society over for dinner and it says the religious people are indignant? I want to warn you that if you truly listen if you truly begin to live a life of mercy the moral and the political legalist will criticize you they will attack you and they will get mad at you why because they did with Jesus it wasn't it wasn't the riffraff of life dislike Jeez. It was the religious people because he hung out with the wrong crowd. It's like a Democrat hanging out with Republicans or Republican actually having democratic friends for dinner or another religion or another lifestyle or someone who is involved in some kind of sent you totally disagree with if you begin to live a life of mercy you will be Chris. This is the motivation behind much of the criticism that I get why because I make friends with a lot of different different people I have friends who are Muslims and I have friends who are Jewish and Mormon and Buddhist. I have friends French who are atheist. I have friends who are gay. I have friends who are all kind I spent when I'm not at Saddleback. I spend most of my time usually speaking speaking to groups that I totally disagree with why because I'm practicing the Ministry of mercy and Jesus hung out with people who were different than him. This is the motivation now they've come to him the PHARISEE say why do you hang out with this scum. Come let me ask you whose socially unacceptable group in your circle by the way they call them scum anytime you use a put down or humor against somebody else you are being unmerciful now. Jesus wasn't afraid of guilt by Association for two reasons. He knew who he was and he knew what his mission was. He knew he was he didn't need the approval of Pharisees he knew exactly who he was and he he knew his mission to seek and to save that which is lost and if you know who you are you don't need the approval of the legalist. You don't need the approval of the critics you don't need the approval of the self righteous who set them up as jury and judge on your life you do what Jesus did you you go have parties with people in order to win them and love them and share the good news and show mercy. Jesus says to always guys go learn the meaning of mercy when they accused him of guilt by association then number seven one more and this is going to surprise you to Jesus taught that to have a ministry of mercy you must value relationships over rules. You must value value relationships over rules now if you're a rule keeper that just grates all the wrong ways and particularly if you're in the H._R.. Department and you have policies and procedures Jesus would say put people before four policies put people's needs before procedures put relationships before rules and regulations he would say choose love over law. Let me give you a very important insightful incident Matthew Chapter by the way look okay. This verse up on the screen Romans twelve thirteen ten says love is the fulfillment of the law so if you're doing the loving thing it's genuinely for their benefit not yours for their benefit. You're doing the right thing now. Look at Matthew Chapter Twelve. Here's another time Jesus Jesus has a run in with a legalist pharisees another time Jesus was talking walking through some grainfields on the sabbath and his disciples. We're hungry so they began to pick some grain and eat it now. Some Pharisees saw this as religious leaders and they protested tested. Your disciples are breaking God's laws by harvesting grain on the Sabbath okay. They're they're rule keepers I but Jesus said haven't you ever read what King David did when he and his soldiers were hungry he went into the House of God. That's the temple and there he ate the holy bread the consecrated bread reserved for the priest and Jesus says to the Pharisees Heresy You would not have judge these innocent men talking about his disciples. If you knew the real meaning of scripture I want you to be merciful. I don't want your sacrifices there. It is again he quotes so Zecic six for the second time for I am the Lord of the Sabbath now get this the pharisees come and say your disciples are breaking the law that Jewish lot says you can't harvest grain on the Sabbath. They're harvesting grain away and Jesus wait a minute. They're hungry. They're hungry. I'm the Lord of the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath and he's saying here soot love before the law I put I put people before procedures. I put relationships for rules and regulation regulation. He says you guys don't get it because you don't understand the meaning of mercy he says I want you to go and read that scripture. If if you knew the real meaning of the scripture I don't want your sacrifice. I want your mercy then you wouldn't have a problem with the cycles picking some grain on the Sabbath. They're hungry doc. I want to dare you to do something very risky this week. Not Pick granted the Sabbath but I want to dare you to commit an act of premeditated mercy with one one of these categories yes. There is attention. Yes there is a tension between mercy and Personal Responsibility Eddie. Yes there is but I have personally decided that if I'm going to air I'm going to err on the side of being too gracious to merciful and to forgiving because if you're going to air that's the side I would rather err on. Oh that makes sense so wait a minute rick. Can you go. Can't you just go overboard on mercy. Absolutely you can Jesus did it's called the cross the cross with arms outstretched. He says I'm doing this to be merciful. Father Forgive them. They don't know what they're doing. That is the most over the top example of mercy ever ever. He let them beat him. Whip him score. Jim Spit on him. PUT A crown of thorns on him and he never retaliated waited. He absorbed every one of the blows and then what's his response father. Forgive them. They don't know what they're doing. Paul also I was ignorant and unaware of what I was doing. Can you go overboard on mercy. Yes you can look at the cross. It's way way way overboard. Maybe you've never accepted. God's mercy to you. The Bible says in Titus three five it is not by works of writes assistance we have done. We've talked about that last week but according to His mercy he has saved us the Bible tells us in Hebrews Four sixteen let us approach approach the throne of grace with confidence for there we will find mercy mercy and grace to help us and our time time of need if you haven't accepted the grace and mercy of God you need to do today now. I want us to close a little bit different way today. I want you to buy your head's right now but I want you to keep your eyes open. Okay so if you'll bow your head and keep your eyes open so you can look at your message notes and what I WANNA do is I want to end by asking you to consider some personal application questions and then doing something about it in these the seven areas of how do I be merciful so I'm going to ask you a question and next to each of these numbers. I want you to write down Amoun- An initial just the first initial of a person that you're thinking about okay so number one how merciful be patient with People's quirks. I want you to write down. Who who has irritating quirks that? I need to be patient with this week. Nobody's GonNa see this except up to you but you can just write down the first letter of their name who has irritating quirks that I need to be patient with this week week right down a name number. Two who around me is obviously hurting that I could help this week. Can you write down name. Can you write down in initial. If you can't think of anybody who's obviously herp earning. It means this. You're you're not paying attention. It means you're so wrapped up in yourself. You can't even see the people around you who are hurting okay. How about number three the third one give people a second chance? Who Do I need to give a second chance to this may be tough for you but this is the Ministry of mercy? Who Do I need to give a second chance to write down an initial first initial somebody you can use this later on this week? Number four do good to those who hurt me who has hurt me that I could do good to who has hurt me that I could do good to number five. I am to be kind to those who offend me. Who offends me? Maybe it's a comedian. Maybe it's the politician. Maybe maybe it's somebody but you can write down a name. Maybe somebody close to you who offends me that I should start praying for who offends me that I should start praying for rather than just being offended by them. Maybe if you're close enough you could be kind to them. Number six build bridges of love to the unpopular who's the outcast who's the unpopular person person that I could build a bridge of love to who was the outcast or unpopular person I could build a bridge age of love to work in my community the soccer games here at church anywhere and then number seven seven who is an unbeliever. I could invite over for dinner in the next two weeks. Just like Matthew did WHO's an unbelievable. I could invite over for dinner in the next couple of weeks then invite them to church. This friends is your ministry. Eh Of mercy heavenly father your word convicts all of this as I look at these seven things I think of lacks and faults we this is in my own life and I pray that rather than just hearing the word we would do something about it. Give us the courage to be merciful. Give us the courage to this week to do. Radical premeditated -tated acts of mercy in Jesus Name Amen.

Roman coins had the image of the emperor in contrast to Jewish coins coins for the temple where specific so you might be trading and Roman coins commerce they wouldn't work in the temple. You had to have temple coins and that's what the money that was a legitimate role for the money changers to be making that conversion okay because the problem they were in the wrong place. They were in a place of worship not outside. That's the that's why it was offensive and so the found in the temple those that were and so forth and when he had made a scourge of small cords he drove them all out of the temple and the sheep and the oxygen poured out the changes money overthrew the tables and he said to them the sole dubs take these things hence make not my a father's house a house of merchandise. My father didn't say our father my father. It's interesting that there's only one time that Jesus didn't refer to him as my father that's that's when he hung them at Cross and Belet out my God my God why style forsaken me. Why didn't you call him father because he couldn't he was in our shoes? He was in our place and we have no capacity to grasp what really went on there. We'll be dealing with that later. In the Study of the Gospel my father's house and it's interesting Jesus being portrayed here as inflexibly religious righteous. I should say flexibly writes. Most people have the impression that he was only meek gentle and compassionate. We're in for a big surprise. He is capable of anger as we see glimpsed here. We're going to see him in a different light. Beware the wrath of the lamb. I preach on this once and someone sent me some bumper stickers from my car. Beware the lamb. I kind of like that. That's pretty cool. Okay remember everyone of us up in Nazareth in Luke four he's synagogue and he calls for the book of Isaiah Reads Isaiah Sixty one verse one and two and we face his reading shuts. It says this this day is that scripture fulfilling ears when you compare what he read in Luke four with Isaiah sixty one you discover he stopped at a comma. He didn't finish the sentence the part he didn't read was and the day of vengeance of our God he stopped at the Comma close this day as the scripture fulfilled the other will be fulfilled that commas lasted about two thousand year but when he comes back it's going to be a very big surprise. In terms of the Jesus comes back the vengeance of our god well her seventeen disciples remember that it was written the zeal of nine house had eaten me up and that's a quote by his disciples from Psalm Sixty nine some sixty nine is the most I quoted some in the New Testament for other reasons not for this another part of it that is worth your beware of versus eight nine to that described his childhood days of how he and his mother were made mockery of because he was apparently legitimate legitimate how the drunkards made up songs about them down the tavern but he and his mother that the tension within the family among the children they don't know who Jesus father's stigma of illegitimacy hovers on him and his mother for over thirty years we all know about we have some glimpse of his pain and suffering on the cross. Most of us have had have no grasp awesome what he put up with for thirty years as a child so that you and I could have an unblemished family tree as and we quoting psalm sixty nine moving on verse eighteen then answered the Jews and said unto him what sign insure onto us seeing that they'll do these things always looking for a sign it it'd be interesting just to collect the different places that the Pharisees or wherever asking for aside and he will have just finished something really wild and look for a sign jusin senator them destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. What's he talking about? Okay see this is this. This phrase will be misquoted quoted during his trial we get to the end but and in three days there's this three days come up again. Is there a connection of this three days and three days of numbers and the Jews forty and six years was this temple and building and will rear it up in three days. That's the rebuttal to the strange remark. Destroy this temple three days see Herod's Temple. Actually it was a massive rican restoration of Zebra probables temple built the days of Nehemiah the the reconstruction of the temple began about eighteen A._B._C. and was continued to about sixty three. If this is forty six years from the beginning that would imply that this is all occurring about twenty eight eighty if Jesus was born in two BBC as we suggested the possibility of if previous session and this would make him about thirty or priesthood age to age so it all would fit together by the way forty six years but of course here the John Explains but he speak of the temple of his body well we not and understanding that that's the story this temple his body and three days we all know and it's three days between the the crucifixion and the empty too but he's equating all of this to himself his temple right. I wonder what this means in comparison to the ashes of the Red Heifer Procedure seven times in the scriptures by the way it also declares ye are the Temple of God here. We have Jesus pointing to himself as equivalent to the Temple of God right but you'll discover that seven times in the scripture the same designation is given to you. We'll come to that in a minute here too to speak of the temple of his body but he answered instead of them. This is back on another case but it's another place nice. Were you looking for a sign center them in evil and adult generation see after assigned but they're shell no sign be given to it but the sign of the Prophet Jonah but for us Joe was three days and three nights in Wales belly social the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth well that tells would you that Haiti's is the Geo centric concept at least conceptually and of course he's linking Jonah and his experience to him predictively which tells you something about Joan. Most people don't know I I believe from the text in John Joyner died most people don't they soon that he was just survive. He did survive it but he went additional terms used and she always the abode of the dead. The departed spirits a grave and shoulder to different things three days again. You Know How many times you see three days well see new life on the third day in Genesis one we looked at that Abrahams offering of Isaac when God told Abraham to offer his son that was three days that the son was dead to him and that's what he was nineteen points that out Abraham new he's acting out prophecy. That's that's why named the place in the mountain and again two thousand years later on that very spot another father would offer his son on we're on Christmas. We always say Isaiah nine six per unto us. A child is born unto us. A son is given those are not synonymous child is born occurred in Bethlehem son has given occurred on both true but they're different aspects joining the great fish. We've just looked at that one. The total were in when he hangs on the Cross. He says I'm a worm and noman the word he uses Tola. The toll is a worm that attached herself to treat as Lara becomes a source of Red Dye and three days at peels off white. Though your sends a scarlet they should be white as well. It's a three day process that is alluded to it. Frustration by the Lord of across Rehabs Council Rahab is strange Pun. The Holy Spirit uses to put three days between the Hebel Trauma Hebel and hope of the Tikva three days in in Ribs Council. It's another study the wedding had conner we've just been through but also had a three third day emphasis both in the front end of it and in the procedures invoked and of course Israel's petition for repentance as a prerequisite to the second coming in Jose and last versa five first part of six so three days seemed to be relevant up to all of this and we could go through each one of these but let's go on here when therefore he was risen from the dead his disciples Zyppah remembered that he had said this unto them and they believe the scripture and the word which Jesus had set so see they may not have understood it when happened but upon reflection Jonah saying they understood later basically no surprise now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover in the Feast Day many believed saved in his name and when they saw the miracle which he did so it was a fruitful time apparently but Jesus did not commit himself under them because he knew all on in and near he needed not that any should testify a man for he knew what was in man pretty dismal close isn't it so Israel spiritual status blinded priesthood. We saw that earlier in chapter chapter one they had a joyless nation they were that wine is the flavor here and the desecrated temple discover and it's interesting interesting to me that as we peel the onion on numbers nineteen but that whole procedure had to do do with the temple disagree temple so the Third Day's emphasizes the critical aspect. It's linked with the temple we you notice that of his body apparently a ritual separation from death to life and it's not a sacrificer offering itself take advantage of a pass symbolic death. The death of the read the game with the actions of Red Heifer and Jesus is of course our high priest. I'll l. let you chew on these spray them through and see if you feel there's any connection between the whole connor experience and the the rest of the chapter where Jesus speaks of himself coming up on Thursday meanwhile though let's get back to ourselves we are the Temple of God that's declared seven times in the Scripture in First Corinthians three nine six nineteen and sixteen and if Asians too and Hebrews three those five are by Paul and then we have I peter two in First Peter Four by Peter Obviously so Paul four times as Peter Twice but I'm always fascinated when I see the architecture by more than one that tells me the architectures by the Holy Spirit not the stylistic ballistic of some particular Penman so when we get the first five there's an insight you need to be aware of Ah Very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit and so and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in this passage is where we get the the insight one of several places the insight of what's called the tripartite design the spirit the soul and the body in that order spiritual onto the soul which drives the body. We get an upside down. We let the body we'll our appetites and but anyway that's part of the problem we get an upside down and so it's interesting is another thing only the word of God can discern the distinction between the spirit and the so and where it's my authority for that well several but Hebrews four twelve is authority for that for the word of God is quick and powerful sharper than any two sword piercing even to the dividing asunder of Solo spirit and of the joints and marrow and is the discerning of the thoughts intensive heart. This is the reason that psychology is doomed to frustration because only the word of God you can discern between the spirit and the soul psyche and so psychologists doomed for that very reason if you've done a study of Automata computer sciences you know that it's impossible to discern the architecture of an infinite state machine from external behavior whether you know it or not you are an infinite state machine mathematically speaking and it's impossible to discern your internal architecture from your external behavior that's dictum of theory of Thomas John Boehner women and others and that's exactly the dilemma that psychology faces because they're trying to infer your architecture from your external behavior. It can't be done as you infra-state machine so as we look at this again we've looked at this be the past with using the the Tabernacle as a model here we can see the outer court being the body the holy place being the sole of the self if you will and the the spirit in the holy of holies there's a parallelism here your body so as the tripartite design on the Tabernacle would seem to be an approximation at least of our architecture. That's why he can say seven times. You're we are the Temple of God. If you say temple you're going one step beyond this. Those were those became the elements of the temple and so it's feasible get into all all of this from the same point of view set aside the furniture for the moment and take a look at the zones here we have the body we have the soul and the spirit but there's something different here. There's a couple of elements that deserve attention at this is this is amplified in the materials of my wife's ministry called away copy and be transformed or really develops practical implications of this kind of architecture because it also deals with these strange wouldn't storerooms which the hidden chambers that seem to be <hes> correlative to what we call the subconscious those things that can affect our behavior but their subconscious to us if we if we don't deal with improperly and but the main point is is there's an area where you make choices that's between the soul and the body and the porch if you will and it has significance this may sound strange to you but I invite you to get acquainted with my wife's materials <hes> the way of a copy and the be transformed materials because they're the profoundly relevant in terms of practical guidance in these areas because we have the greatest commandment we have the greatest commandment I think we all know it right. Jesus quotes Shebab from Deuteronomy six five Thou shall love the Lord God with all their heart with all my so with all my might and Matthew Twenty to thirty seven one place where he said now you'll love Lord that God with Iheart so and with that mind and the question is is is is that sounds great but how do you do that with that will require you having some insight as to what do we mean by Heart Sola nine. I don't think that mine means brain. They're not the same thing heart soul mind and what do these things really mean and my bride spent twenty years tracking down every Greek and Hebrew word that in any way related to any one of these to get their usage and discover all kinds of discoveries which is what led to her family heart so in mind well see. We have a system architecture. If I have a computer here obviously I've got hardware microcircuits memory and those things but does that tell you anything about the behavior of the computer. It's Sir inspired for I'm not at all because it all depends on what the south the hardware simply eight residents for the software the software determines what happens when I push what buttons and there's a user interface and there's internal interfaces and there's a machine language all here the point is is that my problem tonight. He's I can't see you can see the temporary residence that you're in okay and so you know we can. We can simulate that hardware got man. It's pretty simple to switch on and off you either on the Oh with women. It's a little different and so while you guys laughing you like a remote there too has some so we can play with these things ideas but you know the truth of the matter is is that you have a physical body. That's correlative to the hardware environment flesh bones circulatory system. It's it's et Cetera but you also have the software part of you yourself your actual self call it soul aloha spirit mind whatever your thoughts themselves that makes view has got nothing to do with the physics of your body. That's not a physiological tissue and it's the parallelism of software in the computer and the software that makes up the real you that I want to highlight here because some things we know about software that might be worth your understanding if software if we're has no mass a light switch it's on or off can be storing a one or zero but it doesn't change the massive it does. It weighs the same whether it's on rough right software has mass if I take a little diskette. We're using different things but you remember the little diskettes. I'll just use that as my example here and I weigh way up blank cassette it weighs about seven points. If I load that cassette with a million bytes of software we seven tenths announced didn't change the mass I can even send software through the airways and it's off because no mass and so I can go through that she the real you is as software and hardware and itself modifying history dependent space transcended but that you know it has no mass. We need to understand that if you've had a background use of time you know that that time has various mass acceleration gravity if you're outside. If you had no mass you have no time software has no mess so it's not restricted to a time to me that means you are eternal whether whether you're saved or not you're still software whether you're safe or not the dilemmas where you're gonNA spend it. That's what it's all about. He turned his longtime and that's what we're going to deal with in depth in Chapter Three of the gospel of John So we'll accession we've been waiting at Connor and the cleansing of the temple we have the water purification tucked behind the scenes at the wedding of Ghana. We have the tripartite residency highlighted by Lord himself in Chapter Two and it's up to you you to reflect the connections that have not really been made in our literature between the two halves of this chapter and we've had some topical optical tutorials here we obviously went through the Red Heifer in the background of the water for your vacation and we talked about personal architecture in terms of saying destroy this temple raise it up in three days and so for our next session. I want you to prepare by studying John Chapter Three. It's a very rich chapter. It's in that spirit then you might also read numbers twenty one the familiar tale about the brass serpent brazen serpent and there's aspects specs that that may surprise you where where is this strange remedy that God has Moses use numbers twin whereas it explained Blaine anywhere else in the Bible so weird deal whereas it explained and how is this event in numbers twenty one significant apologetically the word apologetic. Maybe a new term to you comes from the Greek word apology which means speaking in defense is the discipline of defending a position through systematic use of reason in the second Peter Three fifteen be ready. He always to give every man and answer of the hope that is within you. That's a call you're not GonNa win anybody through apologetic because it's not a it's not not a logical issue illogically either but the point is you are called to be able to defend your position rationally and that's what apologetic says. We don't spend a lot of time on that because I'm not sure it bears fruit usually but we shouldn't be inconsistent with so the question is what do we learn learn from number twenty one. That's going to be exemplified chapter three. That's useful to S- apologetically that's your challenge for next time and so <hes> apology is a practical tool but it's not an end in itself so with that let Stanford closing where to prayer father. We thank you for who you are. We thank you for your word and we thank you for the mysteries the lie behind these metaphors we Redo pray father the Holy Spirit you would eliminate the text that we might understand precisely what it is that you would have us in these days.

We're quick to realize that evangelism took place not within the church but on the streets reits growth occurred organically when men and women heard from their neighbors about Jesus and became saved today on insight for Living Chuck's Wendell Gwendal helps us discover the implications for our own generation without any review of yesterday's program Chuck his jumping right back into our study in the book of Acts Use titled Today's message and e ticket for reaching the lost they realize growth is going to happen because us as we are making Christ known God begins to add to the church those who were being saved in in a few miles from us we have insight for living that is broadcasting the Gospel in sixteen languages around the world at Dallas Seminary. We have of a body of sixteen hundred men and women being trained to take the Gospel around the world and we have emissions pastor who is motivated to the point orange taking a team of men and women with to land at to pick a state and say let's adopt this and go there and put our hooks into these individuals. That's just one of a number of things and just as the Lord lead those people to speak to individuals and to share the great news so he's doing that with us and it's taking off. I made some observations when I read those same verses that I read to you a few moments ago and I bowled him down onto five. Let me give them to you. I they were unique and creative in their outreach it had had not been done before and it was very creative how they went about some time in a synagogue sometime on a street corner. Sometimes they did it in a setting where there were were there was a riot about to happen some time they did it as they were being beaten. They spoke openly of Christ as I could have read for you from chapters four and five of acts we need to remember that our missionary outreach must remain unique and creative second. It was not limited to the church gatherings want to emphasize that because that's where we've gotten off in the twentieth and twenty first centuries if if I were to ask if someone were to ask you how could a person come to Christ you're going to be tempted to say why bring him to Church and let Chuck Tell Them Uh why. Why are you want me to do that when you know enough to tell him yourself and your there knowing them and able to follow up with them and spend time with them? Evangelism isn't a church thing. Vandalism is a Christian thing. It's the life of Christ being shared with someone else else. We need to remember that evangelism happens outside the church so that the people of the church might then grow while meeting and gathering together. Get the steam up. If you will in the huddle we have so that we can run the place through the week. Here's a third observation. It is usually connected to nonreligious events. It was usually connected to non religious events when they were imprisoned. They witnessed when they were standing by those who were dying in sickness. They witnessed when they were at the Public Square. They spoke of Christ when there were personal conversations not religious conversations. They were just talking about life in general then they may Christ's no. We need to remember that. Let me say fourth. It was never the result of force or coercion. No one was ever manipulated or made to feel shameful or guilty when they were presented with the claims of Christ. It was winsome therefore convincing it made sense because it was appealing. It was gracious. Maybe small when I read in race deadman's authentic Christianity this thought he says it's always seemed unfair to me that many churches in some Christians keep careful records on how many converts they make to Christianity but they never keep any records at all on how many they drive away from Christ. That's so stegman. Fairness furnace would seem to dictate that both sides of the ledger should be maintained for the fact is churches often turn far more people people from Christ then they ever win to them and frequently. It's the most zealous and Orthodox Christians who who are driving them away the reason is though they may indeed be true Christians themselves the lives they are manifesting investing is a false Christianity. It is as phony as a three dollar bill true. There is a false Christianity. Eh which is practiced by those who aren't Christians at all there are many religious frauds who have never been real Christians uh-huh and there are apostates who give every appearance of being Christian for a while and then throw the whole thing over but surely the most subtle title stratagem ever devised by the temperature to deceive and delude men is to take genuine Christians who truly know Jesus as Living Savior and mislead them into practicing Sham Christianity which they sincerely believe is the real thing it can't of course be detected by a doctrinal statement or adherence to a creed for this type of Phony Christianity is always Orthodox Orthodox. It is frequently very zealous in feeds upon consecration services and dedication meetings it uses all the right terms and behaves the proper orthodox manner but the net result is dry people from Christ rather than bring them to him in sharp contrast. There is the real thing authentic Christianity as it was intended to be when it is manifested it never requires advertisement or publicity. It has a fascination about it that that will draw people like flies to honey true it may antagonize many when they find out what the secret is but the initial character of authentic Christianity is to attract and compel L. Admiration when we admire someone we wanna know the secret of their lie in when they make themselves accessible to us us and they're willing to tell us the secrets. We're ready to listen. Let me tell you a story then. I'll get to the fifth observation I made when I was in the Marine Corps. I was stationed

221: The Secret History of iPhone

"Nia calling it. I phone twelve years ago this month Steve Jobs announced a wide screen ipod with touch controls revolutionary raked through internet communications device, but it wasn't three products. It was one product. Yeah. We got it. Steve. It was the iphone. Welcome back. So great. You could be here. I'm Rene Ritchie. And this is vector on January nine two thousand seven Steve Jobs. Put sneaker stage for what was the most incredible keynote presentation of his life of a life filled with incredible keynote presentations, actually was really just that moment where even before he announced it, you know, he there was that like horizon picture of the apple logo just with sort of like, I don't know if the sun or the moon coming up or whatever there's some light coming up behind the apple logo, and he had a very long pause. There any said the day that have been you know, winning three and a half years four. And I remember saying, you know, the way he did that the way he paused and the way he delivered it, you know, the the poison the the calm in his voice. I just felt very genuine and you felt like he really meant it, you know, in St. was always a showman salesman. But that felt like a really genuine moment just before he stepped. Out in front of the crowd jobs assembled his team and told them to remember the moment the moment before I phone because in the very next moment. Everything would change every once in a while. A revolutionary product comes along that changes everything with the iphone. They'd be going for three jobs carefully set up. Absolutely, not down the physical keyboards and the stylus features that dominated the blackberry. Nokia Motorola in palm smartphones of the day, then jobs introduced the multi touch interface that let phone smoothly pinch to zoom. The physics based interactivity that included that inertial scrolling and rubber banding and the multitasking that led him. Move seamlessly from music to call to web to Email and back again. Yes, I'd like to order four thousand tastes to go. Please just kidding wrong number. Thank you there. Technologies that have now become commonplace across the industry, but back then they looked like something out of the movies out of science fiction. Then there was the price. Now these phones sorta do music, but nobody uses them for music is they're not very good. And so they end up buying an ipod to go with the phone. We know we sell the ipod. So how much more than four ninety nine? Should we price iphone for four gigabyte model? We're going to price it at that same for ninety nine no premium. What's? And we're going to have an eight gigabyte model for just five ninety nine the entrenched incumbents in the smartphone space where some of his harshest critics that was after all their jobs. Ed, Colligan former CEO of palm we've learned and struggled for a few years here. Figuring out how to make a decent phone PC. Guys are not going to just figure this out. They're not going to just walk in Mike Lazaridis, former CEO of rim, now blackberry talk. All I'm hearing is talk about the iphones chances and enterprise. Apple's approach produced devices that inevitably sacrificed advanced features for aesthetics. Steve bomber former CEO of Microsoft on millions and millions and millions of phones year apples ellings zero phones a year six months, they'll have most expensive phone by far ever in the marketplace. And let's see. Let's see how the competition goes Google original iphone launch partner was both more perceptive and more agile. They don't really but danger the next generation phone platform created by site take mastermind and former apple employee Andy Rubin, they'd originally focused on making a windows, mobile, blackberry, Nokia style. Keyboard phone competitor, determined to make sure Microsoft would never dominate the market and Google out of search in the mobile future. They so clearly recognized would be the next big thing. Google then CEO, Eric Schmidt was on Apple's board of directors and on stage for the iphone event. He hadn't told Rubin. What apple was doing or that Google de giving the iphone maps and YouTube Ruben was shocked, collectively, they realize Microsoft might not dominate mobile at all apple might. So they spun around and refocused Android entirely at iphone, of course. Schmidt hadn't told apple and Steve Jobs, Google and Ruben we're doing either. But that's another story for another video. Platform. Experienced purple started out as a massive original surface table style proof of concept initially intended for a tablet something closer akin to what became the ipad. And Steve said, do you think we could take that demo and drink it down to something big enough or small enough to fit in your pocket? Just to test multi touch inertial scrolling rubber banding try to move it. Nothing will happen. So that's when I started thinking about what can we do to make feel still alive so mouth that some kind of gift to that's what sold it? And so we go through we go through the whole thing. Again, see was pretty much blown away when I saw the rubber band, nurses, scrolling. And a few of the other things I thought it might God we can build a phone out of this. And I put the tablet project on the shelf because the phone was more important. Apple originally had two separate purple teams a more conservative P one team led by the ipod teams. Tony fidel. Well, we tried thirty forty different ways of making the wheel not become a. A old rotary phone and a more day shis p two team led by Scott forstall previously on ten what will cannibalize ipod sales. And one of the biggest concerns was cellphones. The fear was that P two would take longer to develop. So apple would release P one. I to hit the market sooner. And then follow up with p two when it was ready. But the p two team was so driven so driven the ended a beating p one two key milestones. I was sort of generally hang attention to what you know, what was happening on the P one side. And what I really wanted to do was I wanted to show working functionality on P two before there was working functionality on p one p one was never needed P to was the iphone it had gone from a bunch of giant disparate parts to components on a board to a Wallaby to a wall ABI to a phone and from a dream a risk again a hope to a reality. In addition to everyone, I already mentioned from Bob Mansfield platform technologies to Tim cook. Operations to fill Schiller's marketing to Katie cotton's public relations to release software to Kim Boras program office to well, the list just goes on and on the iphone was incredible team effort at apple the team effort of a lifetime. Great Christie bass owning Imran Chowdhury, Mike Mattis and others have been working on the human interface and interactivity for a long time already. But there had also been a debate about whether the interface should use app kit like the MAC web kit like safari or something new the app. Get delegation was all interested, and they'd come back and said that app kit has too many other desktop 'isms that are buried in there. And and probably too much baggage to make app kit, a viable alternative you have to remember. I'm the Sar of all things web of apple that time, and I'm going back and forth. And Scott looks across the table says. Don, should we do this weapons tonight said much the retations some my own people know to something new one and would come to be known as you I kit the original plan was to make it. So that stocks and weather and maps were you know, were these things that were really just widget sort of in the OS ten cents of of the word. But I remember there was a meeting where Steve was kind of playing with some of these widgets and realized that they they just didn't launch us fast as the, you know, the native apps, and they didn't feel right. And they didn't do all the things that the native apps did. And so there was a quick scramble to convert those all to sort of native apps to get him off of HTML and CSS and things like that. Can cushion does have been part of the safari team had peeled off to build a virtual keyboard? Because that's how things were and are done at apple. I realized that the shapes of the keys which didn't change from your perspective as user as a person typing, but that the keys could change shape. From the perspective of the software, for example, if you type t and then h will what's the most likely letter that you want next? Well, obviously e and so what would happen is invisibly. The key became larger MacWorld wasn't a finish line. It was a shot from the starting pistol, Johnny. I've Richard HOA and the industrial design teams work had largely been completed something like phone everything defers to the despite, but hardware engineering still faced challenges. Steve Jobs crash. The pre-release plastic iphone screen with the keys in his pocket. So we asked the team to come up with a better solution. They turned to Corning I need a transparent material that doesn't scratch, but at the same time it is highly damage, we should invented a new chemically hardened material put it yet define any commercial application for it. The team spun on a dime and got that glass into the iphone, and now, of course, gorilla glass is rampant throughout the industry, and Richard Williamson's mobile web team was still racing as well already gotten. In that relatively full version of safari up and running based on the same web kit rendering engine developed for MAC, they'd also taken Google's location data and created the best maps implemtation ever seen. I'm mobile at least today, but they were then tasked with adding a YouTube app as well. We had a good partnership with them when you to we developed the client just like we did with Steve Jobs. Meanwhile, it was still teasing the iphone are you still on track to ship when late June late June? That means like the very last day of June or was yeah. Anticipation was growing on June six two thousand seven Steve Jobs, again took to the stage Mosconi west this time for Apple's worldwide developer conference, but I do have one last thing. I want to talk about and that of course, is the iphone one of the biggest question marks remaining about the iphone was what about developers it was taking everything apple had just to get the iphone out the door. And there was literally no time to even have a meeting about what a native iphone app. SDK would look like much less build it in time for launch. So we've come up with a very sweet solution jobs announced web two point oh apps as the immediate development platform it runs securely on the iphone. So they don't compromise its reliability or security. He didn't say it at the time. But the thinking was it might take another two years to go native. Of course, the same team ultimately managed to get it done. In one other thing jobs announced was the launch date. The iphone ships on June twenty-ninth p to became m sixty eight or iphone one comma one it had a three point five inch LCD screen at three twenty four eighty and one hundred and sixty three PPI and a proximity sensor ambient light sensor and accelerate that could automatically rotate the screen to match device orientation a quad band to edge data radio eight oh, two eleven BG, wifi bluetooth, two point. Oh, FDR in arm based eleven seventy six Jay's Ed bracket f- bracket s processor and power VR MBA light three d graphics chip and one hundred twelve megabytes of onboard ram to nand flash. Based storage tier one for gigabytes. The other eight gigabytes with a fourteen hundred mil amp hour battery and a two. Yeah. Two megapixel camera. There was a three point five millimeter headphone port though, it was recess so much only the skinniest of Jack's like apples ear pods could fit in. It could also be charged and critically sink to itunes. By the same thirty. Pin dot connector as Apple's already exceedingly popular, I pod what the original iphone didn't have was CD and video rebbe data network compatibility that meant it couldn't work onto the US big four carriers, Verizon and sprint. Not that it mattered. Verizon taken a hard pass on the original iphone, and so it would launch exclusively on singular which had just rebranded to AT and T. The original iphone also lacked GPS or support for faster three g data speeds. In addition to no, hardware, keyboard or stylus, the iphone also didn't have a removable user replaceable battery or s cart support for extra storage. None of that pleased. Existing power users of the time, nor did the absence of an exposed file system copy and paste or any form of advanced text editing and MS either already in the works awhile before because we knew that we wanted. But the novelty inexperience were so good many people simply didn't care about the missing features or the higher price tag lineups had been for. For days outside apple stores, especially flagship stores like the glass cube in New York City where they went around the block and then around again anticipation was stratospheric competitors were dismissing it media was calling the cheeses. And then the doors opened the initial reaction was positive. It is the most beautiful the most radical smartphone or hand held computer. I have ever tested. Scrolls like Budha as they say. Radii phone on a steel ones ten to give it a nine. It's enjoyable. It's fun. And it's just a great great phones. But the price did prevent iphone from getting into as many hands and lives as apple wanted. So at the September five two thousand seven the beat goes on music event. Steve Jobs, not only introduced the first ipod touch. He announced we're going to focus on just the gigabyte model. The gigabyte model is not going to sell for five ninety nine anymore. Starting today. Effective immediately going into this holiday season. We are gonna price the eight gigabyte model of the iphone at just three hundred and ninety nine dollars. There was still no subsidized price even on contract. There was movement. Like, I said the iphone was incredible team effort inside apple the team effort of a lifetime. And if you're ever interested in being part of a team like that. But you don't know where to start take a look at brilliant. Really? Let's get started each day everyday by solving real problems using real concepts and applying them, and if you like the daily problem, then there's more like it in the quiz on the left. So that you can explore the concepts in much greater detail and develop your framework. These provoking challenges will lead you from curiosity to mastery one day at a time. So what are you waiting for go to brilliant dot org slash vector and get smarter and closer to your goals every day, thanks brilliant. And thanks to all of you for supporting the show. The original iphone ended up selling over six million units in its first year on four carriers in four countries. Now, apple sells hundreds of millions of phones year on almost every carrier in almost every country. And it ties everything together from MAC to watch home kit to health get carplay to airplay home pod. Air pot. I cloud apple music and a lot more to come. Steve Jobs told his team that the world would never be the same how utterly right? He was looking back. Now, twelve years later. What do you think of the original iphone moment? And what do you think coming next hit like hit? Subscribe. And I don't know maybe take a moment to tell a friend or two about the channel it really helps a lot and then hit the comments below. And let me know. Thank you so much for watching.

226: Was iPhone XS priced too high?

"The prices to get them high. That's a singular way of expressing a sentiment. That's become all too common. Since apple announced the iphone ten s an iphone ten s max last September. So are they and if so is that what caused Apple's iphone pain this quarter? Welcome back. So glad you could be here. I'm Rene Ritchie. And this is vector Tim cook was asked the question. He was asked the question directly during the QNA portion of Apple's Q one twenty nine thousand nine financial results call yesterday, if you look at what we did this past year, we price the iphone ten s in the US the same as we'd price the on ten the year ago, the iphone ten us max, which was new was one hundred dollars more than than the ten hours. And then we priced the ten all our. Right in the middle of where the entry iphone eight an entry iphone eight plus have been prized. Now, I'll go over the historical pricing changes in the US in more detail in a minute. But so far so clear the foreign exchange issue that Lee Lucas spoke of and the call and in made that difference or amplified that difference in international markets. Cook also bought the exchange rate's up with Reuters. Right before the call he said apple is rethinking how it prices. The iphone outside the United States after largely setting the price in US dollars, which made the phones more expensive in local currencies as the dollar strengthened in markets with currencies that weaken considerably against the dollar over the last year iphone price increases were obviously more cooked told Reuters, and so as we've gotten into January and assess the macro economic conditions in some of those markets, we've had it to go back to more commensurate with what our local. Prices were a year ago in hopes of helping the sales in those areas, but that's outside the US what about inside. So so yes, I do think the price is is a factor. I think part of it is is that the affects piece and then Secondly in some markets as I had talked about in my in my prepared remarks. The subsidy is probably the bigger of the issues in the developed markets. So let's just break all of this down the original phone was expensive for its time real expensive. What should we price this thing at well for four gigabyte model? We're going to price it at that same for ninety nine no premium. What's? Ninety nine dollars. And we're going to have an eight gigabyte model for just five ninety nine and that was on contract at that price point. It prompted Steve bomber. Then CEO of one of Apple's biggest rivals at the time. Microsoft to say it was if not delay. Functionally the same thing six months, they'll have the most expensive phone by far ever in the marketplace. And let's see. What's the special? Let's see how the competition goes. But if there's one thing history is shown us about apple is that they're not afraid to change course to iterative. Sometimes in a big way, you know, the iphone started off at five ninety nine for an eight gig iphone it now sells for three ninety nine for naked guy phone, and we wanna make it even more affordable. And I'm really happy to tell you that the iphone three g is going to sell. For one. And that's for the eight gig model, the sixteen gig model just to ninety nine on contract, which was the only price almost everyone in the US saw at least for the first nine months off contract, though, they were up to five ninety nine and six ninety nine pricing for the iphone three GS stayed the same. And even though it contained the first ever retina display and FaceTime camera. So did the iphone four the iphone four s off contract though, went up to six forty nine seven forty nine and a new eight forty nine tier? And that's where I phone pricing state for the taller iphone five and the touch ID equipped iphone five s I'm only focusing on the flagships here, not the experiments like I phone five C, which was an iphone five in a colorful plastic shell that's slid in under ninety nine dollars and one nine on contract and five forty nine and six forty nine off the bigger iphone six also stuck with six forty nine seven forty nine and eight forty nine range, but the even bigger iphone six, plus which also had a slightly better camera at one hundred dollars to the Bill making it seven forty. Nine eight forty nine and nine forty nine iphone six s was the same again. But we'll iphone seven kept the six forty nine seven forty nine and eight forty nine the iphone seven plus and it's all new to camera portrait mode system crept up twenty dollars to seven sixty nine eight sixty nine and nine sixty nine iphone eight which added inductive charging also added fifty bucks. So the pricing going to six hundred nine seven ninety nine eight ninety nine and for the iphone eight plus forty dollars going to seven ninety nine eight ninety nine and nine ninety nine. Then came I phoned ten with its pricey edge to edge all Ed display and a stick approach of nine ninety nine and one thousand one hundred and forty nine iphone tennis kept the same pricing, but added a one thousand three hundred and forty nine dollar option. Iphone tennis, max fo the same formula as a previous plus models by adding one hundred dollars to the Bill, but only for the bigger screen the cameras day the same one thousand ninety nine twelve forty nine and fourteen forty nine again, I'm sticking to. The flagships here. But apple also released the iphone ten or last year. It took over the old iphone six plus price point of seven forty nine. But without the usual jump to the second here just seven hundred nine and then normal again to eight ninety nine at the same time though, apple retired. The previous entry level iphone e which was at three forty nine and four forty nine and made the iphone seven the new by at four forty nine and five forty nine. So many numbers searing all that down though, we have the base price for the brand new iphone going from four ninety nine in two thousand seven to either seven forty nine or nine ninety nine in two thousand eighteen and that's a lot even though the price of everything from a movie ticket to a car has shot up considerably over the last ten plus years, and what you get in the latest iphone is a Star Trek, the next generation warp leap over what you got for the first one the difference in pricing is still lot from apples point of view. Not that Apple's point of view really matters to customers. We're the ones buying this stuff. But for the sake of completeness. Apple's charging more for iphones, but making less gross iphone margins which are dumb things to look at as they discount pretty much everything, but raw materials they've gone from seventy four percent for the iphone three GS in two thousand eight to an average of sixty percent for the ten style. Iphones in two thousand eighteen fifty three percent for the deeply discounted iphone S, E, gross margins. Company-wide most recently peaked around forty three percent in two thousand twelve but we're down to just over thirty eight percent last year and some would point out that with all the new services revenue which is traditionally much much much higher margin. It could be masking even lower margins now on hardware products. Like I phone so even with higher retail prices much higher prices apple is making less money on I phones than ever before. And if they'd kept retail prices lower, they'd be making even less money likely significantly less. But again who cares about apple? This is about us. What cook also stressed and has been stressing for a while is that the loss of subsidies and the exp-. Measure of full iphone pricing has caused sticker shock primarily in the US. But in some other markets as well for various reasons, I phone subsidies are becoming increasingly less common in Japan. For example. I thought purchases were traditionally subsidized by carriers and bundled with service contracts competitive promotional activity frequently increase the amount of subsidy during key periods today, local regulations have significantly restricted those subsidies as well as related competition as a result. We estimate that less than half of iphone sold in Japan in Q one of this year were subsidized compared to about three quarters a year ago, and that the total value of those subsidies have come down as well while markets like in the EU have always trended towards full price in the US and a few other places most customers only ever saw that one thousand nine on. Contract, but then t mobile started leading the charge to decouple device subsidies from monthly rates in order to make the monthly rates sound lower and with variety and completing the market transformation a few years later, everything changed. It was great for the carriers and the perception that competition was driving down prices. But what it really did was shift costs back to the vendors hard. And you know, full disclosure. I got a lot of this wrong. I figured it was in no one's best interest. Not apples or Samsung's. Not any of the vendors and not AT and T or Verizon and not any of the carriers to show those full prices up front. So I guess they would lean more heavily into the leasing programs which effectively provides zero percent financing on new phones. And only advertise the monthly cost of those phones. Instead, they did both full price and monthly price may be in an attempt to show how little the monthly price was compared to the full price which again was good for carriers bad for vendors because the sticker it really did shock. All people saw was that full price. Glowing pounding like neon. Like techno costs subsidies exchange rates margins. Ultimately, none of that matters. Even if I phone price increases were in line with inflation and the increase in quality and diversity of components and new features and we factored out exchange, and we didn't give a damn about the margins. It wouldn't matter pricing is an intensely psychological more than mathematical equation in the market perception, really is reality and the perception is the prices to get them heart, and as evidence by Tim Cook's comments, apple knows it and is working to change that perception trade ins, for example are being experimented with as a partial replacement for subsidies. They work for apple because ultimately, they get more devices onto the market, and that increases the user base and that plays into Apple's new ecosystem narrative more people with iphones means more people to sell accessories like watch an air pods and services like music and Apple Pay apple is also arguing total value. Now more than just up front cost from higher quality materials and manufacturing. Two more capable chipsets to performance enhancements for older devices to free support and educational services from apple care and today at apple apple is making the case that when you buy an iphone you get much more than you pay for it, especially a couple or a few years down the road. This has led to some investors and analysts complaining that apple is making iphones to valuable and making them last too long. But we do design our products to last as long as possible some people hold onto those for the life of the product and some people tried them in and then that phone is then redistributed to someone else in. So it doesn't necessarily follow the one leads to the other. But fiery, Tim, cook on the record by absolute favorite. Tim cook address that on the same call yesterday. But I'm convinced that making a great product that is high quality is the best thing for the customer, and and we work for the user. And so that's. The way that we look at it. Apple could also obviously cut prices, but either using less expensive components, including the exorbitant amount Samson currently charges them for all that panels, or by removing some of the components, for example, there've been rumors at apple remove the sweetie touch module, and maybe replace it with haptic, touch or maybe not with anything things like that could drive the prices down. Now, I don't think anybody really wants to buy a lower quality iphone we've seen that historically with the rejection of iphone five c and even all the shade thrown at iphone ten art before it got into saner smarter, reviewer hands. If anything iphone ten and ten s show that apple wants to make higher quality iphones and again apple hasn't been making iphones. More expensive. Apple has been making more expensive iphones. A lot of the increased cost has gone to increase components like that Oleg display to depth and portrait mode cameras. The twelve bionic. Apple is thinking long term here. Not short term. That's also what makes just cutting margins tough. I mean, it sounds like the best possible answer to most customers because. Apple's money that gets lost and not ours. And I mean, screw apples money, right? But the market already down values apple more than any other major tech company and losing margin would be an amazingly effective way to bring even more punishment on them from Wall Street. More importantly, apple attracts, and retains talent the designers and engineers who make the products through stock incentives and devaluing apple stock is a great way to repulse and lose that talent. So apple has to be incredibly careful with not only the levers it uses to pull but just how fast and hard. It uses to pull on them figuring this all that is going to take some really nimble really out of the box thinking exactly the kind you can home with brilliant in just five minutes a day. Each brilliant problem provides you with the context and framework that you need to tackle it. So that you can learn the concepts by plying them if you like the problem and want to learn more, there's a course quiz at explores the same concept in greater detail, everything from algorithms to neural networks to machine learning to these thought provoking challenges will lead you from. Eighty two mastery one day to time in no time. So what are you waiting for good are brilliant dot org slash vector and finish your day a little smarter every day, thanks brilliant. And thank you all for supporting the show, whether iphone pricing really is too high or not that's the perception flossy knows it and Tim cook just set as much ramp up. We'll take care of some of it as capacity increases, for example, and more high quality suppliers. Come online component prices will drop same with two depth camera. Modules apple will always pack new features into new iphones, but massive leaps forward like iphone ten will continue to be stretched out over many years. Not every year trade ins, if they become generally accepted could mitigate against the lack of subsidies. But so could the iphone upgrade program if apple could just break out of the US roll with it internationally and figure out how to make the messaging less up front, shocking and more overtime compelling. If apple really wants to get big into services. I is a service is potentially one of the biggest, especially if it comes with other ones. Like, music, magazines, TV games and more all for one reasonable monthly price. Same with making the case for overall value breakdown, everything you get for every dollar you spend, including the longevity, the support the education and everything else. Don't just throw the price up on the slide show, the value, you're getting over multiple slides, and of course, land on that sweet sweet spot where people aren't just willing to pay. What you ask, but are happy to pay it for what they get that way people stop complaining about how damn high phone prices are and go back to preaching. How damn good iphones are period. At least that's what I think. Now at love to know what you think kit like hit subscribe.

Making Gov't Data Usable - Olivia Martin, USAFacts.org

"We, hope everyone is. In, this pandemic and the myriad crises of the moment, how many facts about the environment in the United States do you know? When you're looking for these facts, do you look to the federal government? As a reliable source, a new nonprofit founded by former Microsoft, CEO, Steve, Balmer has compiled a treasure trove of government data over decades from all levels of government, federal state and local about all kinds of government issues, including healthcare, and yes, covid nineteen immigration jobs trade race and the environment as part of our series, commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day this year we're going to explore the facts about the environment, so here's one interesting one quote. The Federal Government spent thirty seven point nine billion dollars in two thousand and nineteen or point, eight percent of all federal expenditures on the environment and natural resources. And State and local governments most recently spent sixty three point eight billion on the environment and natural resources, including about half of that on national parks and recreation services. So what all these fact main one of these numbers mean today we're going to find out from the data analyst at USA fax this Organization founded by Steve Bomber and she will help us make sense of this massive collection of environmental data.

It's a stressful time, so be kind to yourself and take care. I'd like you to meet. Olivia Martin the data analyst. Analyst at USA fax I mentioned WHO's passion for the intersection of Economics, and policy led her to this research and USA facts. Welcome to Green Connections Radio Olivia. Thank you for joining us. Thanks so much for having the Joan Oh you're welcome. You're welcome, so let's start with the basics. The USA facts website says it's a nonpartisan site looking to provide data as. As a free service to help the public understand the government's impact on society. So how does USA facts collect this data USA facts goes to these government sites which are very diverse in the ways in which they present in represent data, and we aggregate and contextualized that data to make it accessible for our users I. believe now on our website we have. Have data from over seventy different federal government agencies on our website, and now that we've begun collecting data respect to Kobe I, believe that number is in the hundreds as we've gone to each and every state public health agency to collect data so everything we get on our website comes directly from a US government agency and we believe that's critical to to our. Our mission and it is a lot of work, but it's something that we're really delighted to provide as a service, the American people because as taxpayers we pay a lot of money for these agencies to be compiled news reports and producing this data, and we have so many really at researchers and scientists who put effort into creating this data and we just. Just want this data to be accessible incomprehensible to the average person right, so it's all based on tax. Payer point is how how are the American taxpayer dollars? Being used correct absolutely, so you said something interesting, you said you're aggregating and contextualising data was drill into that a little bit. How are you I? Mean as you said they. Each agency collected in different. Different ways it sounds like but talk a little bit about how you're aggregating in contextualising the data you find absolutely i. think something that's really critical to our mission is is not to inject our own bias into the data, but sometimes when we find government data in its most raw form, it's it's something that's not quite usable. For example you know For example when we collecting data on the number of Cova cases in each county ny, states. There's aggregation Vets required so that you can consider the data in Orange County California at the same time as you're considering Harris County Texas. Unfortunately until we were doing that, that was not something. The US government was doing a regular basis so sometimes agregation means bringing together data from different government sources and bringing it together in one place so that you can have a contextual and holistic view of what's going on I. Think there's other ways in which we contextualized data as well. We often try to stick to really simple understandable contextualized. For example, hoppy leash, adjusting data can have a huge impact. When we look at things about how government spending on topic has changed over time for example for large government programs such as Medicare social security, having conceptualization, such as population, adjustments or inflation adjustments allow us to really focus in on the trend itself rather than getting muddied by well government spending is increasing. Because our population is increasing I think we try to be judicious in our use of these conceptualization, so, but I think they do offer a valuable service to our users as they help. Make the data more understandable. Because, it doesn't all come in the same formats, even right. But how do you know it's reliable? So for example I've heard about many people including climate scientists that I know personally who were fired from their government jobs, federal government jobs, and even some of the state level, because they were collecting data that was unflattering to the administration's positions or even to the state governor. For example, the woman is a climate scientists I know a few of them actually who were fired for collecting climate data, and there was a woman who was collecting Covid Nineteen Data and Florida, who was asked to doctor the data to make it look like cases we're go. We're going down. When in fact they were rising, and she was fired when she refused now. She's by the way since started her own. Website to distribute the data that she has this accurate. But so, how do you know that what you're getting is really reliable and it's amazing to actually have to say that, but. How do you know that's a fantastic question? Joan I think at USA facts we do hold a belief that the agencies that we collect data from our the top tier agencies staffed with teams of statisticians, scientists and researchers who are mostly. I think separate from the political ongoing today. I think it's obviously impossible for any group to be completely separate from the politics going on today, but I think we do have a lot of faith in the civil service and the the more policy based research agencies. However, I will agree with your point that we are always advocating for. For more and better government data and I think there's always ways in which we want the government to be doing better and providing more for example. We just released an OP ED last week. Sort of lamenting the lack of data there is on a police brutality and police violence United States and we cited government data sets were out there, and we pointed out the ways in which the government needed to do. Better so I think my answer to us that we do have faith in the government agencies that we pull front and we are careful in reviewing their methodologies. When we get data from them for the same time, we're always constantly pushing an advocating for more and more transparent in more frequent government data, because I think we have to keep pushing for that fight and pushing the government to do better at south, so you do you do look at the methodology because all methodologies are not created equal absolutely cool, so do you try to verify it in some way? That's a great question. I think it depends on the source. I think we do tend to rely on US government data, but there are times in which government data sources are known to not be as reliable as you'd hope one example of this. This was we were looking for data on people who had been killed by the police from the Centers for disease, control and protection. The CDC and we'd known based on the methodology that the CDC uses for this data set for example they only look at death certificates, and we know that there is issues in how the cause of death is sometimes written indebted to. If it's disputed perhaps too for agencies, and we knew that we were looking into that data, there was likely to be under reporting, but I think that was a particular case. We were aware that that might be the case. For the example of environmental data, there are other international agencies. Data could be compared to I. Think we always do try and keep in mind. These sort of sanity checks to make sure that. On targets. But I, think the data that we were able to find particularly that from for example, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration in that from NASA I think is really on par with a lot of international agencies are saying about the state of our climate. But I think that's a great point. Well I. Love The your Sanity Checks I. mean if it doesn't smell right, or if it's you're getting conflicting data from two points, it's always good to to double check and kind of back into it a different way, right? So. What surprised you the most you're on the front lines of collecting this data and analyzing it so in looking at the environmental data that you've collected. What has surprised you the most? That would be I think we need several interviews to cover all. Things that surprise me in this report, but I can give a high level of the the three topics of the seat of the Earth report was trying to give context on a few things that surprise me in each, so we're trying to answer three questions to the extent. Could US government data? I think only providing preliminary answers for some of these, which were how to energy and emissions. The United States compared to the rest of the world. What is the state of our environment climate with an emphasis in the United States duty as using US government data in three? What does the US government do to manage our environment and I I think in each of those questions, really fascinating surprising things. Were were lifted up with respect to energy and emissions I, think you. Many of your listeners, probably aware of kind of where we're at with respect to renewable energy were curly. The United States is at nineteen percent of our energy coming from renewable in nuclear sources. Ending though was surprising to me to see that in a number. I kind of had idea we're well. We're pretty far from one hundred percent, but I didn't have an idea of what the actual number was I think seeing that concrete number was surprising to me and I think also seeing the geographic disparities in in how states how renewable states are was surprising to me for example Washington where USA facts is based consumes fifty percent of its energy from renewable nuclear sources i. I believe the majority of that is Martin Credible hydroelectric resources locally, but I think that geographic disparity was fascinating to me with respect to the environment climate are many way. Shin, that you're this, I think. I was again fascinated with respect to air quality that as nation air quality hasn't been been improving I'm however when you look at air quality at different geographies or different cities, the stories are starkly different wos Angeles has been improving from one of the worst places in the country to something. That's moderate air quality where there's all there's also been more rural states that have actually had worsening air quality over the past few decades, and lastly within the government section. Something that shocks me here is just how much of the land in the United States is managed by the federal government. Twenty seven percent of all of our land is managed by a federal agency and I think I was just shocked by this. This is something. Maybe we know in the back of our head that the government is really important, and a lot of the land we see is owned by them, but I think again seeing that concrete number applied that abstract idea. My head was was really powerful for me. Oh I bet it was you mentioned that there were some rural states where the air quality has gotten worse, which ones? I believe like Wyoming was one of them. I would have to go. Look at the report and Act that later, but it did not work in a large amount. It was just contrary to the national trend think it brought back to me the importance of contextualising data that if we find one finding that finding might not be true for all the demographic groups or all the geographic groups that finding is covering. So I think that's something that really prize you. A fax is breaking the data down and looking beneath the trend for different disparities in that trend might. Might be experienced in different groups different areas well I think that's totally true. I mean I I spent my corporate career in marketing communications, and I found that in marketing research and I would hate it. When I got a market research report that had the equivalent of you know, increase the bench, six inches and I'm like no, this is the know. What are we missing here? And then I'd go back and look at the methodology and the guts of the real report and I'd find that. Women wanted this. This was especially when I was at Chrysler in the electric car division, but they were like well. Women wanted this like what here's a great one. You'll like this so. Of The market research says that women that men buy cars, they're the main purchaser of of of vehicles period, Ben buy cars. However if you look at the data. In a married couple? What really happens is the woman says here honey. Here's five cars all drive pick one. Who is choosing the car. So you know it's a whole different. It's a completely different paradigms. So cutting goes to your point of you've got to look. Pardon the PUN under the hood right, so tell us a little bit about that I. Always thought the transportation was always like second two buildings, the buildings and transportation we're one and two in terms of emissions in the US right up until twenty seventeen electricity generation was the number one source of US emissions, but it was in two thousand seventeen, a transportation took this as a the largest source of emissions, and this is for all greenhouse gas emissions, not just a carbon dioxide so I think that's really an indicator that people are relying more and more on these these single use vehicles, spite other attempts to change that fact I was. I'm always surprised to see how low for example residential. Energy consumption is as a source of greenhouse gas emissions. That was also a finding in that chart that we provided in the report, but yes. I think that's something that we absolutely need to watch and push our policy makers to watch that rowing source of greenhouse gas emissions from the the transportation sector by the way I would watch any mapping that you get on one of the hearings. I saw yesterday. Interviewing Raji Pov the FCC broadband and he pointed out that the maps that the FCC's using to determine how much broadband is distributed around the country are completely wrong at least in West. Virginia And any caught a reggie. PA frankly kind of off guard about it, but he said you know. Where are you getting your data from? And and I forget what Pi said and and mansion said I can tell you because I lived there and I drive around. These areas do not have these towers. They're just physically not there, so you're maps are wrong. And then he turned to his colleagues on the committee and said check your maps for each for check the out for your states. Because don't go by that data because they may well be wrong, you could hear a pin drop in the room was you could well imagine? Yeah, that's I. think that's something. Something that can sometimes happen with these lower levels of geographic data I think when we're looking at the state level data as we are on this report, I think from the IRA I. Think Has Pretty Reputable Agency. We run into issues like that, but that's fascinating well. I was surprised when I was in the electric car business that there was a lot of day. That wasn't available. I mean for example this. The speed limits on many roads are not actually universally collected. The only people who have them are on the it could even the town level it might be on the county level, but it can be even on the town or city level. And if community has been growing a lot, the those maps can be wrong. I mean I've literally physically lived in places that were growing so quickly that the maps were out of date, and it was actually keep asking about the accuracy of your data because it's just I know you're the point that you're trying to make is the data that the government collects, but I would be even a little bit more suspicious if I were you about it. Especially when political agendas can interfere with getting valid data, but tell me what was the toughest data to collect for? For the state of the Earth report. What maybe what data will you looking for that? You couldn't get or you were unable to get or where the gaps. What do you? What was the toughest? There is a lot there i. think just to respond to your previous point. I would say that I think one of the reasons that government Dita's often so outdated is think the very careful government agencies a very long time to sort of roll up their data from you know the school, the school district to the next level of government all the way up. So we've experienced Moore's frustrations about how long data takes to roll up, but I think your point is valid. One reminds me of. Maybe we should be less frustrated that I think the Times in which it takes government along time to roll up. The data might mean they're being very careful to make sure it's as accurate as possible. But to respond to your next question about what data was hard, find I think a lot of government data was was frustrating frustratingly hard to find I, think just for this report on the scene of the earth we combed over thirteen or fourteen different government agencies to find just for this one slice of data I think one worthy was really great data, but it was very very difficult to work with with the air quality data provided from the the national. Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration I think it's something that you're not really equipped in. In we didn't have a great data, scientists and some great data engineers on our team that we would not have been able to work with something I. Think is fascinating, really speaks to the quality of life for Americans but was in a format that was very difficult to work with. I think there were other areas of data were I struggled. had hoped to to find it for example for endangered species. I was somewhat disappointed by the data I was able to find. I was only able to find for example. The number of species added. Per Year rather than a more robust picture of you know. Exactly how many? Animals are endangered or threatened in where they are. What types they are I think the data. There was somewhat limited I also one of the. Other difficult things is while I was able to find this data on. How much of the land in the United States is owned by federal agencies in managed by them able to find exactly how much land was managed by the Bureau of land, management, versus the Forest Service. I think each federal agency differs in how they report in on how they use the land for example again. The National Park Service's very clear this these are all the ways in which we use their land. This is how many acres for this for that, whereas for other agencies for example, the Bureau of land management getting that concrete. Picture of how that land is used was difficult, so I think this is one of the problems we sometimes facing government data is that it will clear picture at a high level, but because of the kind of decentralized way that government data is produced reported. Different agencies have different standards of how things might reported. And same thing goes for the federal government might report something, one way or a state agency might report it another way I. think that's one of the continual challenges we face working with government data, but something that we think is is still worth it. Oh, sure. Do you ever try to reconcile it like for example you poor? We started our call. You mentioned the MCSE National Council of. Of Science and the environment they have a lot of environmental data earth, a network themselves partnered with you on the state of the Earth report. They have some data. Do you help? Do you try to validate it? From external sources at all I think like I mentioned before the beginning of the interview. We definitely do sanity. Check what we do. You get from the government, however as A. As a nonprofit that was founded on the principle. Only using US government data. We would use data from another source, however again I think it's important to sanity. Check again like the example I provided before or the the CDC is reporting five hundred or so people who are in. Encounters with the police per year, whereas a lot of other organizations kind of agree on Oh this numbers about thousand per year but I think the instances in which we found those. Disagreements with respect to environmental data were very few, if if not based on the agencies, we selected for the data. We used Oh. That's good to know so. What are three ways that the average person sitting at home or in a park listening to this? What are three ways that they might be able to use this data in their daily lives either their daily work lives or in their? You know daily purchasing. Purchasing behavior or something I think I would be to go visit our state of the Earth report at USA, facts dot, Org, and and get to know the Clinton one of the things that we really try to do in pride ourselves in which I think some government agencies, or even academic research institutions can fail to do is making the numbers approachable anything. We really rely on advanced visualizations interactive components to make our. Our data approachable I. think Getting to know getting grounded in the facts is is a great first step, and I think the second thing I would say once you've gone grabbed. The facts is to talk about people. Talk about them. With other people I think one of the things that were so proud of at USA. Facts that we really have a very diverse in bypass bipartisan audience because we're a nonpartisan organization I. I think our state stated the Earth report has already started to foment and encourage these kind of conversations that might have before been grounded opinions and feelings, but I think these conversations happened in more productive ways than grounded in the same common set of government facts that I think that's a big were proud excited about and I think the third thing after that is getting gauged specifically. Get registered to vote. Get fired up about what fired you up in this report, I think numbers can be interpreted a number of ways, but we put out numbers that are meant to inspire you. That I think one person might see a chart in interpret one thing in another person might interpret another way, but we really do want people to take action based on what they see in learn from the data. I would encourage anyone who reads. It gets fired up to to get registered about to reach out to their policy makers. And always advocate for for better data from our government, because without that I don't think the policy will follow him. That's a good point. Yeah, advocate for and I would say advocate for some consistency in the data. You some standard so I mean it's. It's almost like each data set was designed around the thought process of the person who happened to be in charge. At the moment, the report was developed, and then we had the work to do to to bring together as one holistic picture of our energy, environment. because. There wasn't an agency providing that holistic view at the time. Yeah, no, I get that so before i. let you go tell us. How did YOU CONNECT TO USA Faxon Steve Balmer wide always been very interested in in the government in the ways, in which our government can do better in the ways in which. Government connected to data and technology I think. I went to College Stanford Nice all these really brilliant people who are great data technology, and they had like absolutely no interest in applying any of those skills that they learned toward government or the issues related to government, and I think I was very frustrated by that. and. I was fortunate to have gotten connected. To to hear more about USA facts at Stanford. I think I was really inspired by the work that you say facts was doing and that I didn't want to be one of the people who had gotten these data technology skills, and apply them to something. I wasn't passionate about think applying them to the setting of making government better was something that really excited me and I think also I've done at Stanford a lot of work on a get out the vote and an encouraging youth voter. Voter engagement, and I also saw this disconnect that a lot of students didn't know whether they should vote, and they didn't know where to get unbiased information about the issues on voting. That's also something that inspired me to work with his facts, because I think our mission of getting comprehensive contextual incomprehensible facts out there to ground the conversation. The United States was something a service that was clearly missing to a lot of my students in friends in in college I think is continuing a service missing. For the American people, so I'm excited to keep working at USA facts in and see us grow on the promise that we made all that's great. That's great so normally I. Ask about giving career advice, and so you're still early in your career so I'll give you a choice. You can either share something that you've learned already in your career that you think would be valuable for other people, or you can tell us what it is that your still looking what kind of advice you would like to have. What burning career question you have and I'll take a shot at it and you know maybe who knows who will respond as well. That's that's great. Yeah! I think it's maybe somewhat hard for me to give no best career advice as I am early in my career. Though I would reiterate I. Think Advice I've heard from other participants in your show is about I. Think not letting barriers. Get in your way, i. think particularly when you talk about women and data. I think even in college. That was something that I continually saw my friends getting weeded out of these courses, not because their abilities were up up to what they needed to be a because, they they just felt intimidated, or they didn't feel like it was their place i. think this is something that. That continues to frustrate me because I think it's a trend that continues out into the world of of data, science and technology for women, but I think that's something that's been covered a lot, so I think continuing to push yourself and to have confidence. Your own abilities is advice. I would give anything that's that's about it. In terms of career advice, thank you so much Libya. Do you have any final thoughts before we close? No, this was.

"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from nature's way celebrating its fiftieth year seeking out the best herbal supplements. The earth has to give learn more at nature's way dot com. Hey there it's Peter as you might have figured out weekly. When you tried to listen to our show and got somebody else's or tried to listen to another show and got ours. We screwed up NPR made a change to our web servers that we didn't expect to have any effect on our podcasts, and we were wrong as far as I know. This is the first mistake of any kind NPR has ever made ever about anything. And it feels oh odd the change forced a bunch of episodes into NPR podcast feeds resulting in downloads. You didn't ask for it? Also made it hard or impossible for you to find listen to your favorite NPR podcasts. We're really sorry for this especially because trust me last week's. Wait was fantastic. Best ever. I feel terrible. You didn't get to hear it. We fixed the root cause of the problem shortly after we discovered it, but it took a while for that fix to make it to all the podcast apps. I'm told it has to do with the size of the tubes. The internet is made of if you unsubscribe from this show or any other NPR show, please take a minute to resubscribe it'll work. This time if you are still having problems just go to NPR dot org slash help. We're taking steps to make sure nothing like this ever happens again for one thing. No more letting the kids manage the podcast servers during take your child to work day were dumb with that. It was a bad idea. Thanks for listening and now onto our show. From NPR WBZ, Chicago. This is wait. Wait, don't tell me the NPR news quiz. Hey, Arthur Miller step into this crus- Bill. I'm Bill Curtis. And here's our host at the chase Bank had a Tory of in downtown Chicago, Peter Sega. Not me. Interesting today later on to be talking to Microsoft co-founder. Steve bomber he is. We believed the richest guest we've ever had. But of course, you're true wealth is measured in your friends, and this just in he has more friends too. But I as many of, you know, the NPR podcast feeds got all screwed up last week people who've tried to download our show got for example, how I built this instead for which I apologize and the people who wanted to how I built this got us for which I apologize even more. So this time you can hear us. We wanna hear you the number is one triple eight, wait, wait that's one eight eight eight nine two four eight nine thousand four. Let's welcome. Our I listen to contest it this week. Hi, you're on wait. Wait, don't tell me. I Peter Gabriel Galvin the Washington DC capable. How are you? What do you do there in Washington? Well, I'm a student at George Washington University. But I'm also an analytics for Amtrak. Well, that's exciting. So you're doing the trains how the trains doing. They've been doing. All right. I love working Amtrak though bar. It's a great job. And I get to meet a ton of great people every single day that's going to get free train rides. I do I get unlimited business travel and get a handful of personal passes, but kinda hard to ride Amtrak to where I'm actually from. But you know, where you actually from San Diego, California. It's great, man. But the time you go home to visit your parents you have to turn around and come back. Well, welcome cure show. Gabriel let me introduce you to our panel this week. I up a writer and performer you can see in the final season of veep on HBO. It's Peter gross. Such the Washington Post. It's Roxanne Roberts. And it's a comedian performing June twenty-first of the twenty third at cluster fest in San Francisco Civic Center plaza in the Bill Graham civic auditorium. Joining us for the first time, it's PD agrue. Hey. Give you a welcome to the show. You're gonna play who's Bill. This time. Bill Curtis is going to read for you three quotations from this week's news if you can correctly identify explain to them, you will win our prize any voice from our show. You might choose on your voicemail ready to go. Absolutely. But here we go. Your first, quote is from attorney general William bar. He's talking about some male. He recently got the letter was a bit nitty. Mr. bar, apparently just didn't appreciate the tone in the letter. He got from whom? I believe that Nicolosi. Peter's big Nancy Pelosi sends letters. Thanks for coming. This is the letter that was leaked this week. It turns out that had been sent to Mr. bar by this gentleman right after Mr. bar had sent out his summary of the Miller report. Oh. No wasn't our president actually writes letters. Really not doing too hot right now. So I'll give it to you. It's Robert Muller. He don't. Better. After years of silence as he was viciously attacked by the president and his allies slandered and threatened a special counsel. Robert Muller had enough his fury. Ignited? He rose up clenched, his fist and typed a letter which was tough because with his fist clenched. He had to use his nuts. So Muller sent this letter to William bar criticizing the way bar had distorted Muller's findings about President Trump. The letter said bars summary did not quote capture the context nature and substance of the investigation unquote bar then summarized that letter to the press saying, quote, Robert Muller says I look like I've lost some weight. There's just such an unfortunate amount of not conclusive stuff. That's going on. Yeah. Feel that way gets it just feels like leading up to the report I feel like everybody even on both sides. You just want like some definitive answer. This is just yet. Another thing closure. I want closure. I want like the last scene of a movie and we're getting like page four hundred seven thousand page. I think a lot depends on what movie you want to see the last enough. Do you want to see like the last scene of return to the jet? I will all the walks are dancing on indoor. Or is it more like lasting of the godfather? Everybody's dead. To look in those two choices known as ever said this. But I'm choosing e walks over the guts. It's more like the sopranos where it's just black. And then you get to decide what happened. So that's what's happening. It's like there's there's like no definitive thing. And then even Muller's letters like I disagree with the conclusions. That you drew about like, he should've let it it was like, you scoundrel, what would have been much more exciting. One of the interesting things about this. That didn't get a lot of attention. This week is that Muller and bar are old friends bar talked about this during his confirmation hearings. They've known each other for thirty years, their wives. Go to bible study together. Of course, bars wife insists the ten commandments are really just suggestions. More than anything else. Imagine how like incredibly awkward these people's game night is they all get together bar, and Muller, or wives. And they're like play scrabble, and it's Robert Muller's turn. And he takes two years. All right Gabriel. Here is your next quote. The fact that it's twenty nineteen and we're dealing with. This is ridiculous. That was a student at UCLA who recently found out that she has among the many people who might have been exposed to what disease making a comeback measles. That's right. Is of course, the disease. That's so contagious. You caught it just because I said it's named Justin. America had eliminated measles. But then people started saying, the measles vaccine was bad for you. So now there are seven hundred reported cases of measles nationwide. And people are freaking out. Parents are trying to deny that they are the problem. No, my kid doesn't have measles. He's a bodybuilder. And that's just bacne. And front knee. Armenian face, knee Heine. So many people responsible for this crisis this anti vaccine crisis. There's the right wing nut jobs left wing nut jobs religious nut jobs, but for -tarian nut jobs. It's so great that in this divided time, we live in all sides can get together to do something deeply stew. Now, the question is yours this cruise ship infected this Scientology ships. So the question is I don't know about. I don't know about. All right. So it's something bad happened to the Scientologists. Science. By the way. You come with you. Assassins in the dark. In the Bronx. So yes, there's this Scientology cruise, and they have been quarantined often island in the Caribbean. Because there's a measles outbreak on board is crazy because measles is not the worst thing to ever happen on a cruise health easels is an upgrade from what you usually get on a cruise. You're talking about the entertainment. Gabriel. Your last quote is from a Burger King customer. If you don't tell anybody. They don't know that man was talking about the taste of a new Walker. The Burger King is selling the first ever Walker that does not contain. What right. Meet me. Very good. Impossible. All Patty, the taste is amazingly. Like beef Burger King offer them as a limited experiment was so successful. They're extending it nationwide. Which could mean that non vegetarians are choosing the burger which is a mazing or it could just mean that anybody who goes into a Burger King is beyond carrying what they eat. Anyway. It's great. It's terrific. I honestly they're terrible off this tastes like beef. But here's the thing. It's still really bad for you. It has to be in order to taste that good. It's got all kinds of fats to make it take that juicy taste and listen to some of the ingredients. Right. Soy protein concentrate. Methyl celluloid so leg haemoglobin. It does sound so hungry. That sounds gross. Just try listing. The ingredients of a typical fast food hamburger head tongue kidney force. How did Gabriel do in our quiz? You got two out of three. And that is good enough for. Thank you. Thank you to blame. Hannele is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news Peter an investigation by CBS news reported this week that some schools are frantically using scotch tape roses and old gum to try and teach kids what they're trying to teach kids. What it's like when your school's budget gets cut. Can I have a little well, it's like well, sometimes when a piece of tape and arose love each other very much the trying to teach of sex, Ed. Yes. Fair. These are the methods used to teach something called abstinence only sex Ed, which is sort of like, starvation only cooking. So for example, a teacher will stick a piece of tape on a student's arm, and then tell the kid to pull it off. Right. And then they hand the tape to the next kid. And of course, at that point the tape is like hair on it. And it's like put it on your arm. Oh, it doesn't stick as well. The second time, right? Which is why you should never have sex. So I get the gum. But how did the roses rose works in the summer way? Is what the do the teacher says, here's a beautiful rose never been touched, isn't it? Beautiful and you hand it to the first kid in the first kid hold. Well pass it to the second kid. Second kid gets it and they pass it around the class. And by the time, the rose has been passed around with very many, shall we say partners. It looks bedraggled entire this slutty rose. The one kid in corner. Who's like didn't get to hold the? And then there's the. The other kid. That's like I like thorns. Coming up we go. Visit some landmarks bluff the listener game. Call one triple eight wait wait to play. We'll be back with more.

I'm Bill Curtis where you're playing this week with Peter gross Roxanne Roberts and the Abreu and here again, unsure host at the chase Bank auditorium in downtown Chicago. Peter sago. Don't tell me walk the listener game one triple eight, wait. Wait the player game in the air. Hi, you're on. Wait. Wait, don't tell me. Hi. Chad Lander, I'm from Bloomington, Indiana. All right. And what are you doing Bloomington? I'm a special Ed teacher for middle school. That's a challenging job. Do you? Enjoy it. I do enjoy it a lot. But counting definitely the way. It would also this crab it. So what do you do to relax after a hard day school? I find cross-stitching in baking both like relaxing and rewarding hobbies, really. Welcome to the show chat. You're gonna play a game which you must read to tell truth from fiction Bill. What's CHAD'S topic? Stand up Streep tower of PISA, we must do everything we can to preserve the world landmarks, we have which is why for example, gyp, shins brush and floss the pyramids twice a day this week. We heard though about a landmark in danger. Our panelists are gonna tell you about it. Pick one is telling the truth you win. Our prize the waiter of your choice on your voicemail ready to play. Yeah. All right. Then let's hear first from Peter gross. The Sydney Opera House is a cultural landmark and source of national pride for ustralian. But this week the staff there discovered a shocking fact opera might be destroying the opera house the current production at the theaters new work by the Australian composer, Oliver Bailey called outback it's billed as Oklahoma meets lion. King set in the Australian outback the first act closing numbers meant to duplicate the sound of a kangaroo stampede and sung by one hundred member chorus of all bass parts, the lowest notes. Men can sing as the song begins its mezzo forte and allegro not mind you, but pretty allegro then the excel Rondo crescendo kick in and it is definitely Jay. And also pretty fricken. Night shift, and we are all the way to presto, and fourteen c MO thank you very much. But by the end, it is full on prestige CMO and fourteen. TCC mode. So, you know, it's fast and loud. During the performance Tuesday night, the stage, we get to sink and several performers lost their balance and toppled over adding an unintended touch physical comedy to a dramatic. Kangaroo slaughter at intermission engineers, examined the stage and discovered cracks in the foundation Justice sopranos can shatter glass. It turns out all that base. Was literally shaking the foundation opera. House officials are raising money for payers and Bailey is being asked to rewrite the opera to be less destructive the hundred kangaroos stamp people. Now, it'd be a ten koala stroll. And the bass parts will shift to these slightly higher. Baritone? Register the notes are so high. I feel like Kastrati said renowned talian Bosso Giacomo appre leave. Also, what the heck is show about. Anyway. Semi opera. Your next story of a landmark in trouble comes from Roxanne Roberts. You thought travel made you were Bain and sophisticated. Yeah. Right. Turns out most of the tourists on Easter Island. Have the maturity of your average twelve year old the famous in mysterious stone statues erected between eleven hundred and fourteen hundred AD are threatened because so many people are ignoring rules by climbing on top of the statues to get photos of themselves picking the giant noses of the sacred stone heads, these juvenile pranks are compounding. The naturally Rosen of the fragile Canaan rock all for cheap. Instagram laugh, quote, I'm troubled by the lack of genuine interest in the island in its people university of California archaeologist JoAnne van Tilburg told. Newsweek, scientists estimate that the hundred and fifty thousand tourists per year. Could ruin the world hair to site destroying both the ancient art and the local economy so island officials are creating new strictures till limit access to the heads. So yes, you can choose your own adventure. But you can't pick it snows. Ruining mysterious. Ancient head Easter Island by picking their noses your last story of historic site. In danger comes from Peter dabrat. The great clock on Big Ben is a fixture of London along with Buckingham Palace. The tower of London and fog. But a new survey says seventy two percent of Brits under thirty have no idea. How to read the clock? Why doesn't it just tell me the time like my phone? Says twenty four year old Londoner Lindsey Davies those hands confusing, especially because they don't have fingers. They should call them arms. And why the Roman numerals, I don't speak Roman. But change becoming member of parliament Royston Brimble says the outdated clock is quote, pure codswallop. Which is the most British sentence ever. He wants Britain to modernize. So he's proposing that an LED digital clock crawl be attached to Big Ben right under the old clock. So quote famous clock tower can be enjoyed by many literate generations. Here are the three landmarks of world history. That might be in danger is it from Peter gross the Sydney Opera House being shaken to pieces by an opera inside it from Roxanne Roberts. The mysterious heads of Easter Island being eroded by tourists picking their noses or from PD dab root Big Ben which is endangered by the fact that nobody knows how to read a clock anymore. At someone who worked with young people and have to tell them what time it is all day long. I'm gonna have to go see your have to go with C that you think they're gonna put a digital readout on on big band. So that kids these days that that's your choice. Yes. I think I have to go. You've chosen than PD story. Bring you the correct answer. We spoke to someone is doing their best to try to preserve this landmark and one of the things they like to do is pickle the statues pick their nose or approach the statues and touch them. That was Dr JoAnne. Von Tilburg, director of the Easter Island statue project talking about tourists habit of picking the noses of the giant heads. So you were fooled by PD giving him a wonderful debut on our show. The point I in this game. If you so much for playing thank you take care. And now the game were accomplished people come on to try to do something not generally worth accomplishing. It's called not my job legend has it that when a young man named Bill Gates asked his college dorm mate Steve bomber to come help run. His new company called Microsoft, bomber wasn't sure he was just looking for summer gig didn't want to commit to a real job. Well, forty years or so later, Mr. bomber has retired from his job as CEO of Microsoft. He owns the LA clippers of the NBA. And he's created a new nonprofit called USA facts. Mr. bomber welcome to wait. Wait, don't tell me. I just I is that story true that the Bill Gates asked you to join him in this company. You're like, I don't know. Like, I don't know drop out of school. What did that need my parents college, and they want me to drop out of business school? Little skeptical, but Bill, what's the smartest guy ever knew. So that was a real positive thing. Right. And so you didn't drop out of college like like build it. He had done that you dropped out of was at Stanford business school. Exactly exactly I do have a degree of leave. I probably. Terrorists were very very happy about that. Did you ever Lord it over Bill because at least I graduated Bill. You know that would've worked for. And curious about this, your parents, you say your parents hadn't gone to college with the first person in your family to do that. So when when you said to the mom dad, I know you've supported me, and I got my Harvard degree. But now I'm going to drop out of Stanford business school, and I'm going to go do this thing. The ideas that everybody will have their own computer. Did they like say, okay. Mic sense. No. I would say, you know, I don't know what the protocol is not your show, but they lost their. They. They actually they actually had some good questions though. My dad asks what's where now this is eighty was the craziest question what why would a person ever need a computer? Right. Did you did you believe in it? Did you actually had Bill or whatever convinced you? Yes. This is the wave of the future. Everybody's going to have their own computers. We're gonna provide the software. Well, that's kind of what I thought. And then I move up here. And within a month. I taught Keith Pete. I dropped out a Stanford business cool to be a bookkeeper for a tiny little company. So I started talking to Bill about dropping back at Stanford. They would take back and Bill whenever he was trying to make the most he'd bring his dad six feet seven of brought them to dinner, and he said speed, Steve you don't get it. We're going to put a computer on every desk in every home, and I was mesmerized antiquated. His dad. You while you were I mean, there's a famous photograph of the Microsoft staff in the early days. Bill Gates and his partner Paul Allen the les, Paul Allen. And I'm not sure if you're in that photo that I'm thinking of but man, they thirteen I wasn't here. When the gang of thirteen migrated from Albuquerque to they looked so nerdy. Looks like thirteen people with thirteen asthma inhalers. Was it really like that? Were you like hanging out with guys with pocket protectors because you're a pretty big guy? You were an athlete where you like hanging out with these guys going, what am I doing with these nerds? Well, it was pretty nerdy place. Writing software gritty nerdy profession, and by the way, dude. I was not an athlete. I was team manager which some. Some. You were like a big guy and you played sports that you were the team manager. I was a big guy in a math major. I can hear already in your voice your famous enthusiasm. There's a very famous video from must be twenty years ago with you. Oh, you're a developer's conference, and you and you start shopping. And you're kind of undis- going to be blunt with you because I think you can take it. You seem insane. I'm not in the business. I wasn't quite sure who you were. And I'm like a crazy person has taken over the stage at this Microsoft conference is like is that you is that like the Steve bomber that your colleagues new good a few different size. Because one thoughtful and kind of deeply thinking another little rougher on the edges is third. I got them all baby. When does that side the side that we saw that famous video? When does that the bomber tend to emerge when the clippers are down thirty one the warriors in pull the comeback? NBA? Everybody knows you were an early employee of Microsoft that company did very well. You had the wherewithal to buy the clippers. Is there something about your life? That would surprise people who might imagine. What a life of a man like you is. Well, I think probably the most surprising to most people when I was a kid and even into college, I was very very shy person. Really? I had a hard time speaking up in class when I started my first job, I met a guy that day. He describes it this way high bomber and my hands are really sweaty. Because I'm really nervous to meet you.

Senator Michael Bennet became the twenty first announced democratic candidate for president which causes a specific problem for the Democrats. What is it? I'm going to say is it the debates were they can only fit like they were going to split them up in two debates, and they could only put like eleven on a stage or there's not enough room at the debates. Okay. That's exactly right. We've known for months there too many Democrats running for president. But now it's official. Now, the first democratic debates say debates are scheduled for June with ten candidates night for two nights twenty spots. Now, there's an extra candidate in the DNC is not happy about this. They don't wanna be accused of favouritism like they were in two thousand sixteen. So they've adopted a policy of pretending we love all our kids equally. The dining room table was only so big. So they're going to have to make Pete. But again, go eat in the garage and the car. It sounds like more like wrestlemainia than it does like there's twenty people. Yeah. I wanna see I want him to do nine each time. And I want him to do it in the Hollywood squares. So the DNC has a plan. They're going to get up at the first debate. And they say this debate is overbooked. So we need volunteers to take a later debate. For three hundred dollars voucher and a guaranteed spot in the cabinet. Pedia authorities in Norway say they've captured a Russian spy who is it a beluga will. That's right. This region fishermen spotted this beluga whale when they noticed it had this equipment harness on it. That was labeled Saint Petersburg. Further evidence. It was a spy came in. They asked it species in it said wail beluga whale. They tried to get the whale to talk by waterboarding and man was that not affecting. So the Russians didn't even deny that said. Yeah, we've been using Wales to spy for years. And also, we are told you're submarines don't taste good. Get on them. This news is tough for the reputation of Wales. So far in toll. Now seen is innocent in the affairs of men, especially killer whales who are now going to have to explain man. It's just my species. I work at the agency as an aunt. So I have two questions. Yes. Russell. All right. This harness. I saw a picture of this wail. And I felt like it looked like it was too small for him. It looked like. Training. They grow up so for that. This way.

Short hills, New Jersey. I grew up very near there. In fact, when I was growing up my mall, the one where we went malling was was the short hills mall. Changed a lot since then I hope so it was pretty. Is it still there? Tell me it's still there. Still there. I try to avoid it at all. Welcome to our show. Debra bill. Curtis is going to read you three news related limericks with the last word or phrase missing from each if you can fill in that last word or phrase correctly in to the lyrics will be a winner. You ready to play? All right, great. Here is your first limit my office. Space cannot be beat. It's a curbside kid sweet by space. I am marking with three bucks for parking my desk is set up on the three. Yes. Exactly. Right. Discos off the church and co working spaces cost thousand bucks a month. But it turns out you can rent a cozy little rectangle of workspace for as little as two dollars an hour as long as you're sitting there with the turn signal blinking on your desk pulls out. This movement of using parking spaces on the street as office space started in the bay area and has spread as far as France. It's a lot like we work, but instead of having to deal with annoying co workers, you don't know you just keep getting dinged in the but by minivan. Do you have people over to like I'm going to press you with my luxury? We're. People are actually doing, and it's sort of a protest against like real estate price figures. People bring their desk, they bring power cables, they hook up their lamps. They have meetings. You know, it's like right there car just next to the no there's no car they just deaths on the package. On the package. Feeding meter the meter and this is legal. Apparently, there's a law that says you have to put a parking space. The meter. You can sit there seems like a loophole you'd say. Loophole. So big you could drive a desk through it. All right here is your next Limerick. The girl in the live report snorts men once wore them for indoor court sports when legs aren't Wimpy. Then you can go skimpy. Hey, man slip on these really short. Short short. Yes. Short shorts shorts despite. Figure that one out how terrible they look Prada. Fendi Massoni are making shorts for men that are very short. That's the new thing go towards the life man by light do they mean, the light pallet part of your inner thigh. Short shorts or miniskirts for men are hitting the racks this summer, they're being tastefully styled with blazers and ties for professionals were paired with shame teens for that embarrassing. Father look. How much do they call? They cost of course. Hundreds and hundreds of dollars because you're supposed to pay this for that sort of thing. This is a scam. That I think they're running on men that of course, they've been running on women for probably centuries, which is they say, well, you had to wear your shorts down to your knees. You buy a bunch of down to your knees. And the next thing, you know, you've got to buy them. So they hardly everybody can tell if you're Jewish. I mean that. All right here is your last Limerick four couldn't fish ears. It's a up who will not run their mouth like a faucet if secrets you harbor tell priests or a barber the pope told them both. They can't little tricky gossip. Yes. Gossip. Pope Francis addressed to gathering over two hundred hairdressers and beauticians. Apparently, he had no pope ING to do. So. And he told them to avoid the quote temptation of gossip that is easily associated with your work, unquote. Then gave his next pronouncement asking the sun not to shine. Where where was that? It was apparently I think it was the Vatican that they came to see him. And there was like, hey care dressers. I know you're stereotype is it's kind of cool that he would know that that's the stereotype of. Well, this is the pope of the people the Popolo day. So as it were he knows what's up.

Mason and Ireland HOUR ONE

"And. Ladies and gentlemen. We welcome back to their show. Hey now, Jeff Katz v here. What is going on man? The product scum has returned. I fought for. Yes. You know, I put on my co host this week, Greg for some reason does not like you on the show, Greg. Why is that? Why don't you like Jeff Katz on the show? I love Jeff Katz. No what I basically I had to go to truck. Ultimately, that's the move. And so now, I did I Trow lunch. And now the book me, so that's a good way to play. I actually had we have orders of things of that. We the people that we get we normally have Ramona. Ramona's not available. Brian cabinets? He is on the payroll. He is here. They're contracted lawyers. Yes. They are contracted. So those are the people that I go to the most is Linda Cohn of a contract yet. No. And a contractor her. She was a winner catcher get a contract. I mean, that's that's not that's way above my everybody. AB n always being ago sheeting. That's what I'm doing. I'm negotiate. When does the FOX GIO close? When there's going to be an influx of new capital coming in as these properties are exploited. I think that they can afford both for Linda Coenen myself year deal make that happen. So there's some fascinating stuff today. First of all Kevin off is going to. Join us because starting today, and this is something I will do renew my season tickets. What's not to renew? We went to the Super Bowl. And we came that close. And there was a point at which Brandin cooks if he not that. I'm stuck in a moment. There was a point at which if Brandin cooks had been able to make that touchdown catch. It would have been ten ten and a jump all the rest of the way. Instead, we lose that game. What fifteen to three three? Yes. Three points in the Super Bowl. You can't you live like that. You do like data. You kidding me? That's true. I've known you longer than that forgotten on for a year, everything sticks with me it sticks. I have a very long memory. So first of all there's unbelievably interesting stuff today. Like some days, you you wake up, and you're like what the hell are. We're gonna talk about today woke up, and it was like look at all this. This is like Christmas morning. There's so much good stuff. So I what are you? What are you doing in your in your life? Now had lived in New York. And now, you're back. I I took the Steve Mason plan, basically, the Michelle Beedle, and I both she came out of it better than I did. I believe, but basically we all went dude New York for a little bit and went. No, no, no, no, no, no. You ever lived in New York. No, I enjoyed it. After say time, it's a fun thing. And I got to do some ESPN New York out there. Those guys were really cool too. But ultimately both business is up recite. Not rough up little old, ladies and poodles. That's how I wanted it to me. We're looking for little old, ladies poodles. That's right. I don't resource base not less, and then ultimately girlfriend and is split up. That's that's okay. That's okay. I liked her to for a long stretches on these things. I like to I'm knee deep in unhinge now, which is not a euphemism it to nap. And it's fantastic. Okay. For whatever it's worth, I'm fine. It's it's going well, but no happy to be back in a bunch my businesses mostly all here. Anyway, it made more sense. And I think frankly after almost twenty years here one thing you realize like New York, I love visiting love going there for long stretches. I'm L guy at heart. There's just no question. Yep. I am also in LSI permanent period. I don't think I'm pretty much here. All right. So it's been a couple of months since Steve bomber. Announced that he's going to build a new arena in the brand new sort of you know, I did buy personal seat licenses. So I went in and got you did. Yeah. I did. Oh, went in and got the entire demo on what that whole sector is going to be like an Inglewood is going to be like its own world. It's going to be like LA live in Inglewood, and maybe even bigger more elaborate because there's a gigantic. State of the art football stadium. They're shopping there's residential. There's there movie theaters. You know, it's it's going to be locked and loaded, and there was a point at which Steve bomber decided. Hey, I'm going to build an arena over there for the clippers in this new will call it the Rams sector ram sector. That sounds very very futuristic. Well, that's all right. Yeah. By the ramp you've been cleared for the ram sector enters by the ram stadium. And as it turns out there were some conversations about maybe the Lakers moving back to the form. And a lot of this stuff has come out because of a freedom of information act because there's litigation between MSG and the city of Inglewood. And so all these documents have come out, including emails between Jeanie Buss, Linda. Oh, Rambus and Irving as off who is about as big a Macher as you could get that urban as off when you look at the from the eagles such as the history of the entertainment industry is had his fingers on all sorts of. Yes. So the day before the clippers announced their plans to explore building this new arena in Inglewood Irving. As off floated an idea to genie bus and top adviser, Linda Rambus about a move that could undercut the clippers and prompt a seismic shift in the Los Angeles sports landscape as off emailed. Here's my dream rebuild the forum from scratch, Lakers, plus music, boom. I love the fact that he used boom, boom is extra emphasis and Joe accepted buoy as well in that feels feels like organic to L Irving as off. Yeah. The Lakers now say that the vision will not be realized, but they do acknowledge in a statement MSG approached the Laker. About the possibility of returning to the form following the end of the lease at Staples, which is twenty twenty twenty-five nothing came from the discussions, but emails between that the times uncovered the LA times uncovered indicate that they they kind of went down the road a little bit on this thing. And you know, what they should have stayed on that road. I have said for a while. This is Staples is now a twenty year old building and perfect at perfectly. Nice building. Right. But there are now fancier cooler arenas, all over the NBA in it is not any longer a state of the state of the art arena unquestionable, and, you know, especially now when you look at your lake doing up in in San Francisco Francisco now with the with the warriors, you know, these arenas are getting more and more high tech in elaborate in this would have been a chance for the. The Lakers to build something within the within the confines of where most of their history has been made. I mean the forum you'd think about the Showtime air to go back there would've felt so right? And specially a new state of the art building, I think they should have pursued it, I also think like, frankly, the economic rationale is a big piece of this. Because when you look at how the ownership of staple center works at self, and I wasn't I if you're genie bus in full disclosure. I I've done business with genie. I know her like just as that will call her my sort of you on this, but just dollars and cents consular few colors your view of this as well. Why wouldn't you if you are the buses, and you have the Lakers removing any, you know, a decade removed from success? Not even why wouldn't you look at the Jerry Jones's of the world, and the modern owners who actually own if not all of their new arenas, but the vast majority and say, wait, we're the Lakers. Why aren't we doing? So the arena businesses moved into direction where it would they would be doing malpractice to their business to not kick tires on. Right. And they and they definitely did. And you know, what I was. I mean, it's become a cliche. But I think I'm the originator of the expression. What's new what's next? It is it is an adapter die world. And you've got to figure out what the next move is. And the clippers will always be the clippers whether Balmer realizes this new arena by the ram stadium or not, but that's significant to build a brand new arena and from a revenue perspective. And again, I personal seat licenses are being used up in San Francisco for the new warriors everywhere. Build a new arena without PSL's though. Wouldn't this be an opportunity for the Lakers, which are essentially a family run business to increase their revenue send it straight to the bottom line? And invest, and I know look, I know if you're a Laker fan, you're like could pay personal see licenses, but you know, from a from a perspective of let's generate revenue. Let's push more revenue into, you know, building out the arena absolute high-tech aspects to it like avid San Francisco. Invest in scouting invest in analytics invest in sports science all of those things all that revenue will help to create a better organization. I just think they missed the boat on this. Well, you can't criticize the Lakers for not keeping up with the Joneses on sports science and stuff like that. And then say, no don't explore this. Because as you said, they each Dr one another I think, frankly, if there's a lesson to be learned from the LeBron Lakers era, particularly it's that the Lakers need to start being a bit more mercenary and how they go about handling their business and recognize sort of almost putting Lakers I above anything else. That includes your. Superstar players that include your. Warm feelings with your partners in the current arena setup. The arena deal expires twenty twenty five. I believe if I'm read the article correctly, that's not that far away in terms at all. And so given that given where the league is going in a world of sort of keeping up with the Joneses. I frankly, I tended air with you the the one question I have when it looks when you look at the Inglewood complex. And I think this is an genie even intimates this in the emails that were leaked the pressure. That bomber is going to face when you look at the war between MSG and AG and the concert booking wars that Goliath if he doesn't have an ally in that arms race, he's dead in terms of being able to book outside events beyond clippers games. And I think we all understand the economics. Don't make sense for that to be a clippers only dark every other night arena. But that is the sort of war that will go on in terms of holding talent. And I don't know that bomber can win that war unless he overspends which he certainly has the money to do. Yeah. The one great their nickname for bomber is off. Yes, it is. We'll tell you what that is. Next. It's fantastic. And by the way, I think it's gonna stick from. Now. I think you're ever going to be this is only going to be what we call him from this point forward. He's no longer. Steve bomber. No, we'll tell you who is next. Mason Ireland Jeff Katz in for John ESPN LA. For me and other drink. We're trying to say what we're going to do for opening day. We wanna do you know it's opening day. Two weeks from today on ready to weeks baseball baseball. We'll talk about all the new rules that they're working on right now, which is some really really cool stuff. And and some stuff that really has riled up, Greg. He's really riled up today about some of this stuff every day. I'm always Ryan purist. You're like George will. He takes one little rule, and he's like I said, that's the whole those rules. It was an air major leagues or one rule is had issue with those it out. Do you worry to hijack hijacked? You worry about the way. We're all baseball fans here about the way that baseball handles their messaging, and how botched the last two postseasons of Ben when you compare it to how the NFL and NBA handle their their off seasons are not postseasons off season. What do you mean their message like hot stow like the idea of free agency and the the way? The issues with the union and the players I feel like baseball kind of loses some steam when the season ends when you question NBA NFL. There's always excitement they know how to keep that sort of scoop of everyday there's a little new story too. Right. I mean, look at his doesn't do that. We haven't done a lot of it. But look at NFL free agency right now. I mean, you know, Dell Beckham junior to Cleveland and Levy mbelle to the jets and Tonio brownie every day stores like there's a constant where's teddy Bridgewater going to decide in Miami. I don't know if he might. There's an art to this and baseball doesn't know how. Well, and the problem is actually let's let's hold that. Let's us an expression that I really hate. Let's put a pin in that. We'll get after it later, and we'll get after later because it's a it is a good subject. All right. So if you're just tuning in, we're talking about the fact that at some point the Lakers and Irving as off who's executive with MSG did consider the idea of the Lakers moving back to Inglewood into a completely rebuilt form. Now the forum if you not chance to be there is for for my money. I was there to see museum onto neck. Oh, you I almost went to that show. And I'm sorry. I'm told production-wise it's pretty spectacular wise. They do an unbelievable job. But that is the state of the art place to see a concert. I saw Bob Seger there two weeks ago. And it really is a site line wise, if you've never been you've been a where gardens since they redid it same guys, and it's the same thing the sight lines from everywhere, it, frankly. The answer measuring status to shame contravention. Yeah. So, but this the idea would be this would have been completely rebuilt for the Lakers to return in twenty twenty five. Now, a member Lakers. The bus family owned sixty six percent AG has twenty seven percent, which probably would be sticky since they own staple center and Patrick soon. Chong is a minority investment LA times owner, correct? Yeah. He's now the time zone. So there were some emails going back and forth. And again, all these emails came out because of freedom of information act filed by the LA times involving the city of Inglewood and the MSG. So the one thing that comes up in these emails is over and over Linda, Rambus Irving as off Jeanie Buss. They all call Steve Balmer balls. Yeah. A l l z. With Z. That's how ball's falls vulnerable Dan balls, the put up with one morale Niners, isn't that a cool nickname? Yeah. Hey what Steve bomber? I would own boss. That'd be like, I'm all into that. I don't want. You don't think? So. No, no, listen. I think you, and I are both still upset that they abandoned ship the or ship head the former mass ship which was really before chocolate. Condor that I think that there's problems when the clippers were very shipping. Yes. That's true. There's probably money to be made with this the canon that shoots out the t shirts. Yes. I see the little rubber bouncing with like Steve's head on something take that home. So some of the emails this is from urging Irving as off to Linda Amazon genie bus, and Tim Leiweke tomorrow AM there will be a press conference in Inglewood. They will announce that balls in the clippers have optioned land on century boulevard to build a new arena. We were blindsided and not involved in the process. It's a long way to for wition. But we should talk about how it impacts the Lakers forum at cetera. So like Wicky, thank you. That's a name that hasn't been dropped in this that he cannot be glossed over who's he with now who's he was he went to the president of age e then he went to Toronto. Right. And so apparently if he's in mess g Ken how that adds a whole extra wrinkle of this history. Like is a big thinker, man. We are sitting at LA live was that was baby that was Tim. Jeannie, rope BAC. They're all crazy. This is a joke. Why would Adam let this happen? He has no vote. Unfortunately as off responded, it will be a long legal fight bus than used a nickname for as off, which is another nickname. I would I I would love we need to see you nugget become wonderful nugget nugget as off. That's unlike Jay, you'll remember the Owen Hart usage of this isn't a little more affectionate. I believe in this show. Listen to listen to this line. We need to see you nugget didn't ball. See what we did to my brother? He will have nothing, but clippers basketball Whoopie, he sleeps with the fishes didn't balls. See what we did to my brother? I'll that's awesome out gesture. Yeah. By the way. By the way, nugget is what I call my daughter when she was born. Oh, it's my little nugget your little nugget. They're affectionate. So balls, and then they go on when's Lisa dodgers have been discussing. But the neighbors they're already up in arms, blah, blah, blah, for concerts year talking about how really shy sometimes on concert venues and finally g says, I think about the vision you and Shelley had when you re imagine the forum, and how you made it happen. I believe you can do anything in. As off said, here's my dream rebuild the form from scratch, Lakers, plus music. Boom boom for emphasis. And this is one of those areas where sometimes I question men good that they considered it. Right. Good. They explored they'd be wrong. Not you. But how would you not at least have these conversations? But there is some imagination that is required to think a couple of moves ahead on the chessboard. And sometimes I think the Lakers are guilty of just staying the same. They're not thinking forward. They're thinking what used to be? Our championships are banners all that stuff with Kevin arnovitz on here yesterday. And Kevin was talking about how the Lakers might be better served by operating without all that history in their head. But just we're going to operate like a mid market team. And we're gonna do all those things that amid market team would be we're going to team build we're not going to necessarily. I don't agree all the time. Okay. Explain actually. Explain now coming up. Yeah. Balls balls. It's a good team. So all right. Just talked to my friend John Patterson last week. He owns test a monster, Huntington beach, Mazda, and all I can say is. Wow, I so arnovitz Kevin arnovitz was on here yesterday with me and Ramona, and he suggested that the Lakers should think of themselves or at least operate as not a team with all this history. But as a team that is a rank and file mid level mid market team. And do all the things the kinds of things that that team would do you disagree cats, by the way, and for John I think that's bonkers. I'm reminded of the great Rick James, quote, cocaine's a hell of a drug. I don't you're the Lakers. I'm sorry. You that's like going into a war and saying, you know, what we've won the majority of the wars that we've fought. Just for the thrill of it. Because wars changed a little bit. We're going to leave out these incredible tactical weapons that have served us very, well and every war ever. And we're gonna go fight the war on the other guys terms. Now that doesn't mean you evolve and figure out new ways to use those tactical weapons, and perhaps reconsidering the strategy of how you deploy them. But that I root for a mid market team. Steve it's like, I'm telling you see how the other half acre. Let me put it this crazy be more like Houston. Well, first of all the more like Houston. Houston is not a mid Mark. They're not the Lakers. They're not a team that they're not. They're not the Celtics. There are team that they want you in my life in year out is in the is in the chase. And I watched that game last night. Had James harden had a reasonably good shooting night. They beat Golden State last night granted, Kevin Durant and play. But to me, that's that's the one team that. Can give Golden State or run and year. And they gave him a run last year. They're the one team they operate. They they operate with a vision. And sometimes I wonder that you when you look at the history of the Lakers, you're gonna look at these six years and see that no team in the NBA has lost more games in the last six years than the Lakers. The Knicks not the sun's eve, no. Raigmore thirty misses the longest stretch they've ever not been in the place. I'm a huge Detroit. Redwings fan, right? Went to the playoffs. Twenty five years in a row, we won four or five cups. I think in my lifetime five I believe four actually hold on. And you know, what we're terrible now. Because that's part of what happens. Now, here's difference like the Lakers because of our position we're probably going to rebuild way faster than anybody else. When I don't see the logic also say, I think the Houston comp is flawed. I don't think that's an accurate copy not amid market team there attack ten market if I'm not mistaken with huge traffic big. Team. Hold on is the bucks of they're doing it. Right. As a mid doing a, right. That's the one. I would point to okay, the bucks. So the bucks have basically done this by finding sort of hidden. Chris Middleton gets cast off by the piston right on into something Jaanus. They take take. Exactly, right. So no one saying, you can't know that was still using some point Lakers at some point. It has to be fair to say, what are we doing wrong doing wrong getting played you're getting played by the biggest brand in the league and his name is LeBron James, and it's time to cut the junk and start playing back. That's what's going. All right. I'm tired of this. And I'm on the air and a year, but sitting retired. People specific people ending what up what was the line that Sodano us yesterday was a great line. It was from someone else's article about the fact that LeBron is somehow able to manipulate all of these able to influence dodge any of the blame. He's been he's he's able to influence moves without taking right? That means he metals and gets away with it. So here's the reality. Traditional basketball contract is as such I- franchise acts contract with player y for z number of years for this amount of money to hell. No math. I'm sorry. But the idea is that it's a basketball contract with the attempt to go win and play basketball. We're gonna market you. We're gonna you're going to give us your services on the court. We're gonna market you to sell tickets merchandising at at at a dot. Okay. That's the normal conceit. The reality is there's not a Lakers fan alive. And you can't look me straight in the looking you straight in the LeBron James come to us Angeles for basketball, first reasons, I think he came for both reasons. So the answer is no because by then both precludes basketball, no for Houston walk and she same time. That's bunk. It's junk pick something else that rhymes it stunk. Okay. The reality is Lakers fans are smart enough to see through this. They're not idiots. They've watched Kobe. They've watched this made me appreciate Coby so much more because Kobe had ambitions and all this stuff. But he never got the sense that like it's going to get in the way of basketball waco's fans of sat here they've watched. And I'll shut up he has sat here he's been injured. Yada, yada. Yada, yada, fifteen projects. Get announced that he's intimately involved in. Now, you've had background entertainment. I've had background tamen. These things are done without a little sweat equity. And so you can't tell me straight fatal focused fancy through it in the wake of using a legitimate devil's advocate opt to optically, I think this does look at Maine when you're in a recording studio on a Sunday night as the ANR guy chains album and the next night you don't play against Golden State, optics terrible. A party in Toronto last night party in Toronto selfish thing to do to shut it down that the Lakers get a better draft position. But he won't do though he won't need to start you back. Okay. So back, I see both sides shut it down. I I root for them to lose every game. Now want him to get as many ping pong balls as they possibly can. I'm sad. We're in the same tank of take on mode that we've been in the last few years, but by the way. Russell leading team to the playoffs. Well, yeah. In the east, but that's right. I look I agree with that part to explain a young Kennedy. Tired of watching the guys that we had turnaround and bloom somewhere else. Dangelo Russell, Julius packed and fans are smart enough to see its Mason Ireland. Jeff Katz is here ESPN LA IDS piano, lay by the way. Greg look at this half Cup of coffee. You still haven't finished even that's not even a half Cup. That's a three quarters. I drank a quarter this coffee. I'm dialing bat. You were saying you were debating was cold brew versus something else nitro. I don't know. What is playing right now? It's nitro group debating just not having coffee here genetic. I don't know for this more caffeine less caffeine. I'm not sure with als gonna but I'm dialing it back you by the way needed. I'm on the diet coke you need to ramp. It down didn't help brand taints having a genie out of the bottle for the first time in eighteen months. Your coke? That's death in a definite kits horrible for me. I know that's Lisa liquor death liquid death. All right. So your point. I think was LeBron James has to his not focused enough on basketball that he came here. No, he's he's he's he's he's playing he's using the Lakers for his own mercenary needs. And the Lakers. I'm simply saying instead of just don't think he's here to win. No. I think you said to win. I think he's gonna win to be great to win. He has said in multiple interviews. He doesn't have to win. He's the greatest of all time right already. But I don't believe LeBron James is is here. Oh, I don't think winnings. The priority. I don't I'm sorry. Okay. Let me ask you. Okay. So we just had the conversation about how we if you're LA if you're Lakers, you sell the Laker experienced and the heart attack part of that is show business is you can do deals you can make movies TV shows. You can you can do. That's what LeBron. So this is what he this is what he wanted. And it's what the Lakers have traditionally source. No question about that. And people could say Kevin Durant made a movie and Oklahoma City. It wasn't very good Kadiria ring made a movie in Boston. He doesn't wanna be a star. Now. Apparently, I know I have to recognize that LeBron is the single most powerful entity in the history of the league. He's the most powerful brand. He's more powerful Brandon the Lakers at this point. And so that, but I mean, you've never seen an individual. I mean, he's look they signed up for the e ticket. Lebron extremes. They knew exactly what they I'm not suggesting they were innocent or Nayef's in the dealing of it. But. I'm simply saying that at this point. I I don't know how anybody could look me with a straight face say he came here because he was going to it was his easiest path to winning basketball because. No, that's not as easy as path. Right. So it was about having a home base that was in closer proximity to his larger business, right? That was the driver of this. Agreed. The Lakers job was just not bungle it. Yes, sickly. And so all I am saying is that a guy who goes in with that mentality. I'm sorry. I'm not going to believe like he's Larry Bird. Magic Koby guys would Jordan who would cut your groin off to win though. I don't see that. I think that ultimately this is kind of his who do their farewell tour every five years if he wins. It's great. And let's be honest, even if he wins it is at best in a rod in New York situation here, but this is a segment. Who are at arm's length with him. And we'll never get past it because they saw Koby given. I mean, literally saying he can be criticised Koby all over the place one area. I would never criticize him is the mini stepped on it. He wanted to kill your tears is Kelly's and he goes makes those two free. Throws bron. I'm sorry. I just I use my own eyes focus. Okay. So what last point up he to you can't do that movie? Steve with a ton of CG at cetera. When you're the star of that movie, and you're in green Stanley, you can't tell me the prep for that movie. Which is a movie that is prepping going that that has not divided some of his attention removing the fifteen other shows, I tend to think that really smart people and I put LeBron in this category. Have really smart people around him who are doing most of this stuff also someone else's based they're just going to crop his head honor crop his head. He's got to be dressed his motion cap stuff and all that all that business. There's no much but somebody else's right in the movie somebody else, directing the movie LeBron is not beyond announce. Sing it a couple of weeks ago. He's the star of the movie you have to do this through hair and makeup. Sure. Doing do doing during your during your off season. Do you get the when's the movie can we check win the move wanting twenty two or twenty and that's I think this summer. Okay. Yeah. Movie that is starting shooting this summer is in pre production. Now like come on, you know, how LeBron is involved in pre production. He's the selnow the moon involved in pre production. Oh, every movie I've ever worked on the star. Still gotta do all sorts of testing. And I'm sorry. I don't I don't buy that. Somehow maverick Carter is running this on the bronze just comes in on like wing. I'll tell you what beamed in off shut up and dribble that was maverick Carter's project. Lebron's name is on it. But a lot of this stuff. Lebron his name is is on it. But other people around him the rest of his team and believe me, it's a team. I'm are doing the heavy lifting. Lebron is the star who swoops in finishes the project cells that does a press junket in it's over I. God bless you. I wish I got the benefit of the doubt from people as easily as you seem to give it in the case. I think Lakers fan see through this. I do I'm sorry. Certainly some do. They're definitely people. But if you put the blame on somebody for this season, it is not LeBron James it is the front office. It is Magic Johnson. And it is rob plank. No, no. They're the ones that made those choices. They're the ones who said. Yup. Lance stevenson. Yup. Regime rounder? Yup. Jovana cgi. Yup. Michael veasley? They're the ones that put that roster together. Is there a single move on this roster removing the outside the end of the bench that LeBron has not approving? I come on. I believe he did collaborate. But in the end, it's the it's the guys who make the decisions that have to own the mistakes. Okay. All I am saying that we have to start judging the Brondby by the reality that he's a unique animal in the history of the league, and he's got an outsized level of power. And as we saw in Cleveland and everywhere else when he says jump. Usually management says how high I think with magic spent exposed in this. There's plenty of blame to go around. But the idea that LeBron is not okay ING approving or disapproving every like Madeline Kahn in history of the world when they lined up the mentioned, yes note. No, yes. Not. That's literally what he gets to every move. They make people know this because they see the history. So it's your contention that LeBron is making all the player personnel decisions on certainly has final sign off on any major move that Drinan sign off. Yes, greg. What do you think? There's LeBron final sign off on play. Like big player moves when they went to trade oubsade. It's I said to being taken Mike Scala, you think that was LeBron's new. No, the final sign off is Robin in Robin magic. You'll they ran a by them. In this sense. No, I don't think. Do I think that hold on? Hold on just because every the big moves the Rondos, the Beazley's the Stevenson's the mcgee's. Yes. Absolutely. Hold on. Kevin batches your let his vase rancher on. Right. His fingerprints on it. He's the one that is helping with those moves. He's absolutely saying I agree with these moves make these moves. So the the fingerprints are on him. The final decision has to be on Robin magic. They get the most of the blame Robin definitive it. You're saying, Robin. Magic are the ones that have to say, no, this is our organization. It's it's incumbent on them to say, look LeBron we signed now we're gonna make the basketball decisions that we think are right. This is not how this is how it will brain works. And this is exactly what what Saddam was saying yesterday was that he is through other channels. He's not the one actually saying the influences moves without taking owner she's going through he's doing it through social media Carter. Well this. This is the greatest player. Era right now, you should not get what do you? Get a disproportionate saying on his retirement to 'em. What's the point of of signing players that don't work well with him or that don't make another words you have? No you've signed up for a three year window you've signed up for three year window now. There's three years left, and they aren't necessarily going to be LeBron's best years. What is the point of putting him with somebody that he doesn't at least say? Yeah. That work. Well, that's the larger debate. And that is really why I would argue the Lakers should use him right back and try to lure Anthony Davis. So I'm not convinced is coming because I think Boston alternately still has the better deal. Well, no, I think I think Anthony Davis Lakers stand. I think once Brandon Ingram had the blood clot that that makes him. I listened to Brian Windhorst on his podcast yesterday and Brian Windhorts for saying he's talking to general managers who are like. Yeah, we couldn't trade for him. Give it given the uncertainty of it. So when you look at that situation, and the reason why the Dangelo thing, I get it. He's in the east is this we've seen so many players now. That take their full rookie contract to divide. I don't disagree with it there. I would try to air to their time line and use the Bron to maybe give us the got. It might not be LeBron. That's the guy might be. He's the lure for the guy that grows. Well, Angelo, Netherland DeAngelis was never going to be the guy that he is in Brooklyn here in LA. I don't think you know, that I think that's I think it was this delight every two big. He was not. He was not a leader. That was the big in New York. He's got rid of MAs gobs needle the biggest part of that. Is you got rid of MAs gov at the same time? No, he's and he has said it, though, Daniel Russell himself has said there was the best move of my career. I've I've not the man I am not not here in media market where there was humor there on medium. Right. We'll get New York is. But Brooklyn, Brooklyn, sure. Yes. It's just in the number one. This not Brooklyn Brooklyn is not the same thing as New York. It is eight hold separate and. Lesser. They are Brooklyn is less than his not New York. I mean, it is in New York. Yes. But it's different than being the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn nets those who separate brands, right? So because him being in your on this kick to I mean, I I don't want. I'm with cats catching one this. Lebron is way running Ronnie's the heart of the team, and he does need to take dial. It back a little bit of what he is in charge of what he actually wants. I don't want a coach is for LeBron. I want to coach for the rest of this is disaster disaster. I think Tyler is going to be the next because. Yeah. Because he was so great. He was so healthy last. That's exactly what you don't need to be doing. I think it's exactly what you need to be doing at the comfort level. You've got to be able to give LeBron who he wants to play four you've got to. I'm actually with cats on other is where are you eight New York? That's as good as this cats. All right coming up next Kevin demo off the vice president of foot. Aw operations for the Los Angeles. Rams will join us that I think the tunnel right. Yeah. Season. Tickets have have come out today. It is renewal time. That's what I'm going to be doing. There is all kinds of stuff going on with the Rams as we get ready for the next season. We will ask him about the fridge agent moves the acquisition of Iraq. Weddell what's going on with Todd Gurley? All the important stuff will hit up with Kevin coming up next. Mason in Ireland. Jeff Katzen, Johnny SPN alike.

A tweeter writes in helpfully. When are you guys going to handle? How bad the sound is from Billy Chris Greg Roy? It is unacceptable that you have not fixed this in two weeks. I don't want to become defensive about that criticism. I would just say to you that there are certain challenges that are making our show a little bit more difficult or a lot more difficult than it usually is and tensions are high stu gods just yelled at Roy for the First Time. I've seen in about fifteen years doing this Roy. Through his headsets a in in in a rage Stugotz has been trying to soothe Roy. Sense it has not worked. This is why divorce rates are already up all over the country. Everyone is sick of each other. We are tearing apart at the seams. And let me be defensive on your behalf year to that person who texted in shut the hell up. Okay seriously. Like we're doing the show very difficult conditions and I understand. Everyone is living under very difficult. Conditions Right now but we're actually trying to do a radio show that requires a lot of communication. You will never know from the way we do it but requires a lot of communication and we value the voices of Roy. Billy Chris and Mike and it is hard to get to them right now. So we're doing the best weekend but I'll be defensive and I will tell you shut up adult text us again. Thank you Guillermo at Lebatardshow is show. Tearing apart at the seams at Lebatardshow we've got an update all of these polls. We've had three days of Poles and we haven't gotten to reading any of them. We will do that before. The show is over but Earlier during last week I should say we were talking about just owners billionaires and I was talking about Micky. Arison the Miami Heat owner and many people because We've talked before about the idea. The Greatest Gulf between sports fans and the people who play sports. It's a bridge made of money because it is the place where a lot of judgment rains down and people don't have compassion generally for the millionaires and billionaires. There is something about having money in sports that makes people slightly less human so because I find fascinating and also stressful. What it is that some of these people with big money are enduring right now because no one really prepares for the apocalypse. And I don't know what Micky Arison monthly bills are. I have found fascinating that when I look at this situation. Not taking a side when. I looked at the situation of what's happening with the Miami Heat. And its owners as he ends up having a real crisis on his hands in the cruise industry a cruise industry that. I would make no arguments on behalf of bailing out. I don't believe that a cruise industry or a casino industry especially not cruise industry where the taxes aren't even paid in this country. I would not make any of the arguments on behalf of we should bail out a cruise company. But I do understand how it is that this would be a hugely stressful time. No matter how much money it is that you have the idea that you're basketball franchise has always been a toy. That doesn't even make money. It barely. It barely broke. Even during the Miami Heat's Lebron years now. There is money at the end of this. When you sell the franchise and like Steve Balmer. You end up paying two billion dollars because you WANNA franchise. While I wouldn't make the argument that it was an act of altruism either that Micky arison offered his cruise ships to Donald Trump as hospitals. Because I'm guessing he wants some of the money that would come or the government aid that would come. I'm guessing there. I don't know anything about this but I find the entire situation interesting. Like why wouldn't people imagine that if you're hemorrhaging money that is in the billions not the millions that that would be a stressful thing. No matter who the hell you are especially if you don't see any wearing the distance relief coming and only relief that you that you hope on is what will the country bail me out. We'll the government bail me out like what? What is it about people that they don't understand it? I'm not? I'm not trying to engender sympathy for anybody. I know that many of you and our audience for some reason have limits on your compassion and your empathy and your sympathy. But what is it about what? I'm saying that people can understand that that would be hugely stressful situation. No matter your wealth. Because they're comparison shopping their stress and their situation is way worse than Micky arison situation or more Cuban situation. Those guys the owners wealthy people they have resources that most of us do not have. They are staying nice houses. They're going to have a lot of money whether the Cruise Industry sinks or not Dan no pun intended Micky. Arison is going to be just fine. So they're comparison shopping and saying listen. I don't care about that guy stress and what he has to do and how much money he's GonNa lose. Because I am sitting at home and I'm not working in. My stress is for greater than a billionaire stress. That's what they're doing. If I may just out of curiosity how is it that you know exactly that? Micky Arison is going to be just fine. I'm just curious how it is that you would know that. I understand how you would arrive assumption. But given the given the general state of where we seem to be headed as an economy and given that you've got politicians right now arguing on behalf of we need to keep the economy alive more than we keep our old people alive like. I'm not sure that anybody is okay in this climate. And that's fair to answer your question. I don't know if he's going to be okay but people like myself people just assume that he's going to be okay like. Hey Mickey is GonNa be just fine. Even if his company goes because maybe they think he invested wisely. He's got a lot of money they just don't care they just assume that he's going to be five. Maybe that's totally fair response from you but most people just kind of feel like hey regards what happens here billionaire going to be fine after this is over. Yeah in this country. We just really don't allow billionaires to go broke especially if have those companies and even if you take carnival and the industry the cruise line industry as a whole doesn't get bailed out in the way that it's being reported in the news at it. Might he still has the asset at the Miami Heat. He no like. There's a lot of people that are losing their businesses right now and having to decide whether or not they go with a car micky arison is going to have to decide whether or not he wants to sell the Miami Heat. I would be curious if you guys what what's a number. I would have to put in front of you for it to reach you in terms of what the monthly bills are for someone like Micky Arison to have no income coming in and again. I'm not sitting here trying to make any argument. I would argue the other side. I would not bail out something like the cruise industry here but where would I have to put the number to get anyone's attention on what the monthly bills are? And I understand Steve. Balmer sits here and buys the forum in four hundred million dollars. Cash that that. There's no one listening audience right now. Who has any concept none of what that is to live in that world where you can buy something with four hundred million dollars cash and have it represent only ten percent of your well? Oh I wouldn't want Micky arison problems right now and that's horrible decision. I know it's like a situation that none of us can find a connection point to do. I have to decide whether or not to sell my professional basketball team for a billion dollars. He's got a I'm envious of his parachute but I'm not envious of the personal life decisions that he has to make week weakest problems right now a lot bigger than mine. Not Envious of the problems. I am envious of the parachute that he has but might people would love to trade their problems for Mickey's problems. That's where it comes from. I don't WanNA trade for his problems. I want to trade for his solutions. You want to right now like you want to give you right now and I give you this given what your life is right now.

Wireless SCAPE THE CORONA VIRUS IF you're here to escape the corona virus You will not be able to do so in about fifteen minutes. We will have an expert on. We've got a bunch of questions to get some insight that we need and some answers to our questions One of the questions that still got have has is. Why can't we have Gulf at Lebatardshow on twitter? Put It on the poll Guillermo. Why can't we have Gulf? Yes or no I heard Mike and STU got to talking and STU gods want a movement some petitions. He wants golf. He doesn't understand and I'm yeah I mean I don't know what the limitations are. He doesn't understand why. We can't have goal. I mean we were were headed towards a place where we were just GonNa have golf. We played the first round of the players. Championship up in up in Orlando by that area and so Mike and I were talking yesterday because we miss sports so much that not only do. I think that we should have golf. A two thousand twenty that we should have golf and that there's a way to get golf. Done Two thousand twenty thousand individual sport. I'm not even certain that we shouldn't be playing tennis. I think we should probably be playing tennis and golf at this point like. Just give us the good stuff. Give us the majors at the very least you know. I can be talked into tennis golf. I'm having a really difficult time wrapping my brain around why we just don't have this sport it's a solo sport. Oh but you have the balls going into the pin into the cup and you have other people touching the lead the balls there make a deeper cup. I don't care I I read copper. We can have copper golf clubs. Well guess what you don't have caddies anymore. You can walk. Oh but what about? The TV broadcasts stationary cans. I just saw this. Why don't we have golf now? The let me explain to you with a copper comes in because they closed the golf course here now. I was playing golf like all weekend. Last week I was playing. I was playing by myself. I was not hitting the ball into the cup because I didn't want to reach my hand into the cup. Because that's the one place or touch the flag but why can't we have copper flags and copper cups and why can't the ball go into the cop and go through a little bit of a car wash like a hand sanitizer car wash and just show up on the next day that I'm with you? We have the science for it every time I watch a major. We're moving the holes every round. Why not put a washing machine underneath underneath the pin? There's guts I don't get it and look. I know that we have TV. Broadcast Rights in the masters are big deal fine. We won't play the Masters Under this but at least play the Valero Stugatz. That's it. I listen. We're not asking for the. Us Open. We're not asking for the open championship the PGA The masters. Just gimme the Valero. GimMe two of the top fifty players in the world. GimMe that tournament. I'll watch it. Golf will be the most popular sport in America. Tennis singles is five doubles completely out of the question. The question the question opening up a US Open just as a for a tournament in Connecticut. Somewhere I feel bad for the Bryan brothers. Great Americans loved the Bryan Brothers. But YOU'RE GONNA have to sit this one out just so low and look nobody's going to be fetching balls. Guess what unlimited balls unlimited balls yourself. A ball you don't touch the other person doesn't touch the ball. We can have tennis. This isn't the most difficult thing in the world. There is no reason we shouldn't have at least Gulf or just Valero just give us a Valero. Just the Valera. We'll take it and it's simple. I mean listen there. It's an individual sport both of them except for doubles tennis. Just test everyone. And if you test positive for corona virus you don't get the Valero your body. Temp is ninety nine degrees and that just makes me uncomfortable. You Sing you go ahead. You welcome to the Bolero Tennis Tournament Connecticut. That's all we're asking for man. I feel like you guys didn't have much there other than the desire to say the Valero against at lebatardshow on the twitter poll do you know anyone who fervently follows doubles tennis Bryan Bryan also not even the Bryan brothers followed double status and put it on the poll as well game or at Lebatardshow because festus zeal put on the poll you remember? Festus zeal the former NBA player. He says he misses hugs. What do you miss more Gulf or hugs at Lebatardshow Because I think you golf zealots golf sell. It's a little bit crazy. You were but I can't. I don't have a good argument for what it is. That's to God's and Mike or saying I mean they're right now because we're not totally quarantined as a country until we're totally quarantined as a country. Why can't you roam around big public spaces? I feel like golfers. Don't get near each other. You might have to carry your own bags. You might not be able to have a caddy or anything. But I think I'd like to see that too. Well thank you. I mean I can get a double espresso but I can't watch golf tournament. The Valero giving Alario we are going to have in a second here. A disease and infection expert. That can explain to us. We've got a lot of questions. We're going to ask him some of them next. Espn radio is presented by progressive insurance. Dr Greg Poland.

He's a specialist in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic. In Minnesota in two thousand sixteen he went on. Jimmy Kimmel live and taught Guillermo Jimmy how to wash their hands. If you remember that I feel for the state of your life regardless for years later Dr Greg. Poland joins us now on ESPN radio. Thank you for making the time doctor. We do in my pleasure a lot of questions. What would you say? Are Some of the biggest mistakes people are making right now? Because they're not properly informed. I think one is that they think they know how to wash their hands but they don't. I have never seen a layperson. Wash their hands properly. I think the second thing is people have a lot of misconceptions about social distancing and about how effective it is. I think the third thing is just how serious this really is. Even younger. People are taking them one at a time. Then what is the correct way as quickly as you can explain it to us? What is the correct later off your hands. What you want to do is walk is wet. Your hands in hand washing is better than hand. Sanitizer you get two soap on your hands and you're going to spend about twenty to thirty seconds washing your palms your thumbs in between your fingers. And here's what everybody forget the fingertips. That's the important part. Because that's what you touch your eyes nose and mouth with and then rents and then turn the handle off. Open the door of the bathroom wherever you are. If you're in a public washroom with the paper towel so water. I Water Warren. The hands hand. Wet Your hand wet then get to soak because you really want the lather. Reason handwashing is superior to hand sanitizers. Is that your physically washing bacteria viruses etc off. The soap has something that decreases surface tension and gets rid of hand. Oils dirt. Nukus whatever's on your hand hand sanitizers cannot penetrate or into dirt. So you know it's if that's all you have use it but hand washing better stugotz. What do you have for the doctor? So when should we use the sanitizer it sanitizer bit overrated doc? Is that what you're saying? No it's just it is not as good as handwashing now. It's better than nothing of course and I would call it second best. You WanNA use a ham sanitizer. That's at least sixty to seventy percent alcohol. You WANNA put a quarter to half dollar size. I see people scored a little. You know peanut size. That's not enough and you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA wipe it over your hands the same way I demonstrate in the video to get all aspects all surfaces of your hands all right so we feel good about the handwashing here. I know I have a bunch of questions. I know. Our staff has a bunch of questions because no one is certain what to do here. Doc I'll start with the mail like am I supposed to go out and grab the mail from the mailbox because I have heard that I should let that mail or packages sit outside for a couple hours to a day before I go outside. And get it yeah. This is a complicated one because nobody has demonstrated transmission from the Mail on the other hand. We know that the virus can be recovered from paper and it then then it's a question of how long does it actually last on that paper? So you're talking about statistically improbable events and yet they probably occur. So what can you do? Well the safest thing would be exactly as you said if you can expose them to Higher outdoor temperatures to sunlight. That certainly helps. The other thing is open your mail and then go wash your hands. Billy what do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota? Ostriches first off. I'm a crazy person. So you're wherever that I go to wash my hands. And here's some of the things that concern me. One eye open up the sink right my hands dirty when I opened up the sink so I try to do it with my elbow. But I've been opening doors and pushing buttons with elbow so I feel like I'm dirty it so then I washed my ange rate and then I have to close the which is now probably infected. Because I touched it before the that my dirty handwrite dirty Elmo and then if I want to get something driver hands. I've touched that with my dirty hands so if I go to touch paper towels regular towels to dry my hands with infected with the germs that I just watched off my hand previous so so it depends on whether you're in your own home or you're in a public washroom. Public washrooms are the worst they are danger zones for these viruses bacteria etc so you can go ahead and turn the water on with your bare hand. Wash your hands. But then turn the water faucet off with the paper towel. Exit the bathroom with the paper towel in your own home. You might have paper towels right next to your sink so that you can open and turn on and turn off the water using Napkins paper towel. Whatever so you're not doing exactly what you're talking about which is re- contaminated Gas Nozzles Supermarket. Debit machines. How dangerous those things you know again. No no way to quantitative but we do know this and I know what I'm about to say sounds really simple but but just bear with me a minute. There's nothing exotic about this virus. You cannot get infected if you don't breathe it in or don't introduce it to your body with your fingers. There's only two ways that we know of so think through what that means if I don't breathe it in okay I'm socially distance I'm not around sick people maybe even in public. I'm worrying self-made facemask. Cause and we can go back to it but that does help Those are those are really important. Things that that people can do and they tend to think. Well let's not very high tech. It's not gonNA help me but it really does help. And then the other thing that we talked about is washing your hands. You now prevented the only two ways in which you can get infected holding your breath around. People is helpful. Well he's interesting. My wife and I were talking about that when we were out running last night. And we said you know. What if we're if we're going to run by anybody and they're coughing or anything you know we're GONNA maintain a ten foot distance because these large respiratory droplets can't go that far. And Yeah you might hold your breath for a second or two until you pass that person billy. What do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota? So if I every time I enter my house do I need to change my clothes or might just being crazy person by doing that because I go outside and on my clothes and I'm like well germs. Let me take this off. Let me put this in the hamper. But then when I leave again on my outside close on again so that doing anything or it might just be neurotic. Let me let me approach this way what I'm recommending to people is what I call can textually appropriate layers of protection so find a healthcare worker? You Bet you change your clothes in the garage and wash those clothes Ideally even before you get in your car onto public transportation or how however you're getting back and forth from work for you and I No particular reason to do that now. Nobody enters my house including me without washing my hand. Nobody comes into the house without sanitizing their hands. Nobody comes into my house. Who's ill I'm not I? I am not around other people. Nobody gets within six to ten feet of me. Those are the things that we can do now. The the surfaces that you're talking about you can hardly help touching if you're going grocery shopping or putting gas in your car. It's okay to touch those. It's not going to be absorbed through your skin. But here's the key thing you gotta sanitize your hands before you start touching things you're gonNA touch repeatedly or before you touch your face or eat. Chris. What do you have for Dr Craig Greg Poland again specialist in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota a doctor? Can I burn my two year old to our house in a neighborhood that has a pool a community pool? Obviously we're not touching any of the lounge chairs or anything but can I bring my daughter to the pool safely. If we're not touching you know we don't. We don't have any evidence that you know. Unlike something like polio. Back in the fifties or other water borne diseases that corona virus would be would be spread that way. The issue is this How likely is your kids to be in the pool and inhale water where I see people sneezing and coughing and water getting into their nose or mouth and they spit out into the water. How likely are you to come in con- into contact with that right away depends on whether the pools coordinated or salt water so? I personally don't think that's a great idea. I don't think it's very likely that you can sort of in a bubble walk into that community pool. Dunked yourself awhile in the water get out not touch anything not come into contact with anybody. I I just think. That's an avoidable risk factor. What are some of the best questions? You're getting what are the questions? Were not asking that we should one of them is just how serious. This is You know when you when you look at it Just two days ago in the US we had about thirty thousand cases. We've got almost fifty five thousand cases. Two days later we had four hundred dead. That's doubled in two days and I think people don't have a full appreciation that and this is a bit of a difficult concept but it goes this way what you're seeing now reflects events. That happened two to four weeks ago so we are not even at the peak of this thing yet so to begin talking about well. We'RE GONNA I. I've done this for two weeks. I'M GONNA start to relax. A little bit would be mistake because there is this two to four week lag period between people getting exposed getting symptomatic getting sick enough to no longer be outside or or expose themselves to other people and then finally have having to be admitted to the hospital. I think the other thing is this false notion. Younger people are not at risk. It's true that they're not dying. At the level people my age and older are but fifty percents of the cases in the state of New York for example are between the ages of eighteen and forty nine forty percent of the first twenty five hundred patients admitted to hospitals in the US. Were between eighteen and fifty so this this misperception that. I'm young I'm invincible. I'm not gonNA have any any particular problems. Just not true. How bad do you project this getting? Well it's really hard to know and I get asked that a lot in it gives me new of sympathy for the weather man but you know let me just give you the outside scenario. These are the speedy fees numbers. Okay not mind the CDC estimate is that if we do not engage in the strict social distancing handwashing everything we've talked about by December. We could have a hundred and sixty two. Two hundred million Americans infected with twenty one million of them sick enough to be hospitalized in two hundred thousand to one point seven million debt. So let's let's not fool ourselves. This is not just the flu. This is more serious than that. It is affecting People and being transmitted in growing exponentially it has not mutated in any negative way but it nonetheless causes considerable morbidity and mortality especially in the older people or people who have chronic medical problems. The one the one other thing I would caution against is you hear a lot of really Leaning statements about drugs that are being tried that worked in such and such disease etc. Please be really careful about that. These have to go through clinical trials before we know that they help and not cause harm just because the drug helps in one disease doesn't mean that it won't harm in another disease it has to be carefully studied first. Stugotz one last question for Dr Greg Poland. Yeah dock with all that being said and understanding the serious nature of. What's going on here? Should we be playing the Valero Open? Golf Talk I mean I don't I don't know a lot about that. I've hardly had time to watch TV or or hear any media. But I think the principle is this. You do not want to bring groups of people together where you're going to magnify and amplify transmission that we had all the founder. It's called Valero. It's like two of the top fifty in the world. I mean it's golf. We're not near each other. Give us your comfort is if you can maintain you know six to ten foot distance. Go for it yes thank you Dr. We appreciate the time all right guys. Thanks Duck yes. This is from Tiger King. Right here. I am told that it's lips thank you. We will get some facts on his documentary. We've got an expert coming on in ten minutes. Who really embedded himself in the life of all of these crazy people who are being featured in tiger king. Apparently this is a lot of lip. Synching though Mike Ryan and a lot of other people have been fooled by this guy. Singing voice wait a second. Yeah that's singing. Voice isn't coming out of JOE EXOTIC coming out of Joe Exotic. I refuse to believe then. Voice of an angel his lyrics define us in the next hour. We will find out why it is STU gods. His father yelled at him. And yes we will get to that in a little bit. But as I said we've been talking about this tiger king documentary. Put IT on the poll. Guillermo please at Lebatardshow did this thing. Not Get real for you until three hundred sixty five waffle house waffle house restaurant closed. But what are some of the things got you want to know because we've been talking about this Netflix documentary? It's about exotic animal. Owners big cat owners primarily and they're just crazy people crazy people we've never had. I think what's happening here is a lot of us are being enlighten to what this world is. And it's just basically the private zoo world and it doesn't seem like you can exist in and be any kind of sane. So what kind of questions do you want to know? Fr from this gentleman who has been immersed in all of these worlds for a while now and his super informed. Because we're GONNA talk to him in about ten minutes. Well I have to episodes to go so this could be tricky for me but I am interested. I want more information on this angel investor. And what happens with him? He apparently comes in to save the day to save. Joe EXOTICA I want to know if the EXOTICA EXOTICA an exotic erotica just did their Hashtag looking at him. Just looking at him. I understand why it is. You would arrive at that conclusion because he is as erotic as he is exotic right. I want to know if the animal reserve that wife. If she actually did kill her husband like Joe Joe Proclaim. She did many many times. They made a video about it. So I'm interested in that as well. Okay so again. It's it's part comedy and it's also about a murder attempt and possibly a disappearance as well that's next.

Were nineties a yeah. I guess they still show up at some of these big nice. We're having mosh pen and in an e._d._m.. Festival where it's down the house if you haven't seen a videos of of shack in the Mosh Pit oh you have to look for what what did you say to me before. I'll look like Clifford. The Big Red Dawn. You saw that somebody tweeted that too. I was looking at it is now mind that I wanted to put out is Shaq Shaq hangs at the world's largest sausage part. It was all there wasn't one dome was on the Mosh Pit. If you're a group of guys where a bunch of sweaty guys are bumping into each other throwing each other is that like I don't know what that's called but in my neighborhood that's not that's not called the mosh pit. That's called something very very depth de l. what's going on there. One woman that comes to these things I must be. She's in the back now. It looked like the cast of the young and the date Lewis speak to that. I'M GONNA say it didn't look like it was funny to watch shack in the middle of Mosh pit. Oh my God man amongst boys guys love and to get a leading people out of the way guys pushing shack trying to get him. He's just throws resolve to them that everything that was. It looks like it looked like an awesome time and that was one of those tops shirts. The checkout at Walmart always tells us he shops at Walmart you talking about the tank anywhere <hes> he wears those all the time got him at Walmart of course he did. I give him for like eight dollars. That's what he does a fertile impact for like one of the ones where you say to check how how did he get smart so rowe chick because he's buying Walmart.

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

59:03 min | 1 year ago

Best Of: Izzy Gutierrez

"Slam Jam Ben Dick. What are you doing warming up to the game? I will all the Games I watch even when I can't get tickets it helps bring stadium atmosphere to wherever on watching all the diaper daddy doesn't again. Come on on fix save it for the air. We've got a game and check out vivid seats. It's the easiest way to get all the tickets to the Games. You want to go to vivid seats for the winning baby. This is the best of the Donlevatar show with the Stugatz podcasts. Dan is off today. Israel Gutierrez is sitting in day Big Day just man you today baby all day long. Just me and you radio and TV. Dan will be back tomorrow not radio. He will be on highly questionable tomorrow with me. Being Greg Cody will do the radio ship. Yeah I gotTa go tomorrow. Sorry thank you. It's the it's the greatest news I get every week. Israel is going to be out of town. You know what I actually wanted to ask you about this just completely out of the blue but around the orange turning you into a little bit of journalists a little bit of a worker. Well forcing you to do some research for your own right. It's forcing me to do some research. <hes> I don't want to do too much research for obvious reasons <hes> it's work but yes they are turning like I am coming arm with facts would stats because I know that's what impresses reality S. He's the one you gotta impress like he absolutely drives that ship and he can change Stugatz a little bit he got any has is and I appreciate the opportunities that Tony and Aaron Solomon and Josh for all the guys have given me on that show but Mike gave me the best advice about around the horn. We'll get Steve Bomber just a second my told me early on stoop because I'll go on forever with a take Mike. Mike's like you got to come out of the gates. I five seconds with your strongest stuff. That's the advice you give me right. Man set the tone at so. I think I've done this show seven times. I have one win. That's pretty good that it's important to get that sat out there early. Because then you get that Nice as little three or four point burst for that take and then you can go wherever you want from that. Maybe adding a couple at the end but you need that stat to get three or four point burst for your answer. What's the thing that reality will deduct the most points for because it happened to me recently last week? As a matter of fact I had like busy I had seventeen point lead over second-place. I was cruising to my second victory and I did something. We'll tell you what it is going to want to hear your response. I did something in which really it was so bad. Reality Deducted fifteen points for my score. If you contradict yourself in a take right that I mean he will point that out immediately. This one doesn't seem to be a problem for you. If you sit on the fence at all if you don't pick one right he will and he will definitely meet you and take out some points <hes> and then frankly if you just don't make any sense which is a potential situation. He doesn't like cliches if you hit them with like a hard cliche right. I noticed that bad jokes jokes get you. Another thing is never you say you agree with someone else's point because he'll number Yang here to agree with someone else's point your own boss was right Blah Blah Blah Pla- she starts getting Plaski makes a point that you were gonNA make and he simply goes first then you have to you know you're on the fly hi. You have to think of a different take. How does that work? Is You have much more experience with this when you have a take planned if the first three people kinda say what you were going to say. Do you just call an audible right. There and complete change your you got to otherwise is it just becomes a ridiculously boring not change your opinion. Just go off on a little bit of a tangent a little bit of a tangent you guys talking about James Harden. I'm GonNa Talk About Eric Gordon very quickly. Just something a little bit different and the work where it gets really tricky is on showdown or what we call it right showdown okay. I can't believe we still call it facetime. I can't believe apple hasn't taken that away from us but when we get when you get to intellectual property I'm surprised we haven't hit apple lawsuit. Eh Get on it legal. We if you're in showdown and the person goes I and that was your take because that's usually a one or the other that's usually a dirty demon of debate thing <hes> yeah that's when you gotta switch it right away and you gotTa have a backup and just take the other side because you just WanNa win. You're thirty seconds at that point. You've already planned. You've got your facetime ready. You did you did work actual work and now you WANNA win. Reality is a big soccer fan. Yes okay. This is a soccer fan. I don't know how big he's bigger than me. I know he's an Italian soccer fan but he doesn't wear like Sola. He wears can speak soccer with my visits where I got into trouble. I forgot these lots on sound. Do you have that because that was one of the topics on the show <hes> he's compared someone's asking him to compare slots onto an M._l._S. player. What's okay? You didn't already know what happened right. Oh No don't tell me you just lost your way and just started saying soccer's dead play the he has lots on Sanford and you said you're the best player in major league soccer. There's another player in Los Angeles Carlos Villa in this. He's got nineteen. Goals twelve assists in his team is leading major league soccer. Do you still consider yourself the best player major league soccer by far because they fit in in his whole the cars twenty nine. He's playing Melissa uneasiness prime. When I was twenty nine where was your big difference and he's right and so I said that I said listen with lots talk saying it's a soccer's dead? I said what's lots on saying is accurate that the numbers are basically the same at the age of twenty nine but lots on was playing it gets tougher competition. It's only like that and he gave me points for that but then even then with the name right in front of me on the television screen I couldn't remember Carlos Velez name ads so I just said whatever his name is. No Daddy started deducting point after point after point after point and suddenly I went from I the fourth just like like that is Latin sounds vaguely like Liam Niessen he does there. It's intimidating scare. You know the real beef you have here though is would he have deducted the same amount of points of what he paged it that Bingo more and what he atlas and I love what he had no clear with woody's role on Mike. I'll tell you what he had no business being in the final to the showdown okay had no business being there that day own the show and somehow what he paid found his way into the final two and I was on the outside looking at you get legit mad when you don't win I yes I do take it very seriously. If I'm going to do the research and try out stats and stuff I WANNA win. She means open the email you the research he means forget the best player in M._l._s. the second slot on proved himself right right in front of my face bed. It was sitting right on the television screen goddess steak. I still owe I I will never be able to do a show around the horn with you well. I'll have to leave town to do in around the horn with Miami Miami. Oh Wow that's right or all have to leave town. I one of the other can make that happen and we'll go do P._t.. One of those days tell them to have me do around the Horn you do around the horn. We'll make it all got that hustle. That's that's his trademark getting the vacation and expense <hes> it's great find a way to get a bureau cam out in the Hamptons. Just do anything make a phone call into a local affiliate and you're good expensively dire vacation. I've got ten minutes in Sioux falls at meanwhile. You're the back nine at pebble. Oh beach. I got an update. Stu Falls Level Beach. Oh I might be leveraging around Pebble beach myself to Stu faults that a lot going on. I spoke to them yesterday. Mike I need update you my apologies because I meant to start with Steve bombing shame on me but I'm glad we had the conversation about around the Horn I now I now know the tricks of the trade so a man who has enough enough money okay enough money. He has accumulated enough money to buy the fifteen most expensive franchises in the N._B._A.. Ed still have five billion dollars. Leftover acted like a complete buffoon yesterday today.
