"What's worse january. Six or stranding americans intentionally in afghanistan. What's worse if you're if you're one of those you know hyperventilating about january six and you think those people on a rotten jail for the rest of their lives and seriously. How long are you supposed to be locked up for trespassing. How long are in january six. Let's see this is timber seventeenth. How many people are still in jail. Because they put their feet up on nancy. Pelosi is desk. I get it bad thing to do. Punish them arrest of charges. Lock them up for the rest of their lives. Do you know how the fear of god has been put into these people and their families how their lives have been destroyed because of their stupidity on january six. Now you could argue. That's as it should be because what they did was a really stupid thing and it was. They became useful idiots for the beast. Those few hundred people became useful idiots for the media machine and the democrat apparatus and biden and all of us liars who pretend now january. Sixth is pearl harbor times nine eleven times ten. They gave them an opening to vilify trump and make him look like he orchestrated it which of course he did not had nothing to do with it. So now there are acting offense again around the capital because there's going to be a few hundred people marching around with signs tomorrow. Complaining about the people locked up still on trespassing charges. Well two things could be true at the same time the protesters tomorrow going to dc would be right in objecting to people rotting under the jail for the rest of their lives because of january sixth. It's also true that what the people did on january sixth was idiotic
The Port Chicago Disaster
"One is quite sure exactly what happened but at ten eighteen pm there was a loud crash. The seminars reported as sounding like metal and timber falling down. This probably a crane or one of the booms which had collapsed then. There was the sound of an explosion and then a fire about five. To seven seconds later there was a massive explosion that destroyed the entire facility. It was one of the largest explosions in history up until that point pilots in the air at the time saw a fireball three miles into the air. The blast was felt in boulder city nevada. Four hundred thirty miles away. There was damaged onto buildings in san francisco forty eight miles away debris landed over two miles away and the plane which witnessed it said it's all white hot debris shooting past it. At an altitude of seven thousand feet. It coastguard fireboat near the pier was thrown six hundred feet or one hundred and eighty meters away where it eventually landed in the water and sank. There were three hundred and twenty men and the peer when the explosion occurred all of them died instantly. Two thirds of the dead. Were african american enlisted men who were working on the dock. In fact this explosion by itself was responsible for fifteen percent of all of the african american deaths in the second world war. I've got a previous episode on the halifax harbour explosion during world war one. The portugual explosion wasn't quite as large. But it wasn't too far away the biggest difference and the reason why the fatalities were lower. Portugal is that there were no civilians on the base. There were two hundred and fifty other injuries and of the men who were killed only fifty one wherever identified an inquiry was launched only four days after the explosion and the ruling was that it was probably the fault of one of the enlisted men. Nothing was mentioned about the poor safety conditions and the lack of training

Light at the End of the Tunnelfor Air Travel?
"While they have been quite a lot of new developments over the past fortnight in terms of international travel some bad but also some good in summary getting back to australia over the next couple of months unfortunately looks like it could be hotter than ever but this finally light at the end of the tunnel with talk now of opening up. Australia's international borders at least for some states by the end of this year. There's been a lot to take in so joining me now. To dissect it all is travel agent and regular guest on this podcast. Allan lamb from netwave. Trevor woke mellon so back in july listeners. Might remember the sterling government javier. The number of passengers allowed to arrive each week into each of the different states and so the arrival caps before july would there were three thousand spots a week into sydney melbourne and brisbane with age taking in one thousand people and perth and adelaide were taking in five hundred thirty passengers. H week bought from july when the government half those caps that reduced And the so. The number of passengers allowed to come in on commercial. Flights into sydney was leave. One thousand five hundred a week. Melbourne brisbane dropped down to five hundred passengers. Awake and perth adelaide. Down to only two hundred sixty five eighty per week. The impact of that was already quite devastating but that was only supposed to be until the end of august. Sadly last week the australian government extended those halved arrived caps until now the end of october and that in fact they didn't even have the courtesy of announcing this publicly. What they did is they just informed the airlines and the airlines have now had to stop dumping twenty seven thousand. People in total of flights. Were booked on over the next two months ellen. What does this mean overall in terms of flights to australia. Unfortunately we've seen a lot of flights get canceled. Four raza timber and in some cases. The of started cancelling fraud type as well as even that reduction kept now in places where the toyota That means that a little flat to being played cancelled and the can't cancelled innocence operating That means is. I know your passengers being carried and the cap is now low at two hundred sixty five seeing some of these carry about ten passengers and often the majority of these business plus fortunately with adelaide is not as many airlines flying in. So because it's mainly qatar airways flying they tend to be taking a hard number sir about thirty forty passes per week into add

"Timbers review of once upon a time in Hollywood lead with an argument that there is a moral imagination hard at work. And Quentin Tarantino. Hi. You called him a devoted if prankish priest at the Order of cinema who understands that the movies are essential to making sense of an insensible world. What did you mean? What I meant is that, um there's reality and there's storytelling and one of the reasons that I'd find once upon a time in Hollywood, so moving is that I think it's the most personal Movies that Tarantino has made about his love for storytelling as a way to Mixed reality. And to Mm. Why do we? Why do we tell stories? Why do we put narratives together? Why do we go to movies? Think about that 1969. When the Manson murders happened, we're coming out of Many decades of a factory town that existed to make happy endings to make dreams to make stories in which the Depression didn't wreck people's lives. We won World War two before we want it where things worked out, and it stored people. It started today. These movies, the stories started, these people who were immortal we thought were immortal. Even you know, as we're reading about scandals, they have a certain larger than life. Godlike quality. Um, what happens in 19? 69 is a brutal dismantling of that. And, you know, as as Tom do already mentioned, you know, we're coming out of 1968 and the horrors of that year, with politicians and public figures being murdered. But there's something about Sharon Tate. Um, a beautiful young actress. You know, eight or nine months pregnant, Um, butchered the way she was that Um, undid. I think a lot of people I was 12 when that happened. I remember for me. It was sort of the first since That even that, coming after 1968 that something was out of completely out of joint and untethered at the sort of the center of the moral universe, said that you know that the beast had been lists something with slouching toward Bethlehem. Um and The thing about this movie is that guarantee no For the really the first time he's he's played games with history in in World War, two with inglorious Bastards and with slavery and Django Unchained. This time he's talking about something he loves. Most more than anything in the world, which is movies, which is Hollywood witnesses period that he grew up in, and he and he sees benefit this time of innocence. That was that not only changed How movies were made, but changed how people processed reality and it changed. What kind of stories we told. You know, you were talking about how Rick Dalton would end up starring in Chinatown. It's pretty. I would lay a pretty even about that. Um if Sharon Tate had lived, Chinatown would not have ended with Evan Evelyn, already dying. The the point of that movie is again the insistence that there is no moral core. There's no other universes. Chaos time. I'm dying to ask you a quick digressive question. What does it mean to call this an audience picture that the and that's some audiences cheer at the end of it. Oh, it's that one of the more fascinating things about this movie and I've seen it twice now and Tom, you should go see it a second time. It's really, um It's a different experience a second time when you know what's coming, Um is I mean, I think you know when this is on streaming, and we're watching it at home alone. Um, with family. It's going to be more of a solitary experience when you see it in that communal setting of a movie together that that disappearing Venue where we used to go see movies as a matter of course, and before we all stayed home and looked at them on their phones. You have this cathartic experience. It's a genuinely cathartic experience, and some people laugh in either horror or shock or delight and some people wince and look away and and it's It is a guarantee no violence, but it has a purpose. Um, I'm more of a purpose and actually sort of a moral purpose and one that throws it back on the viewer and says, Well, what do you think about this? Is this too much If you think it's too much are you actually defending? You know other Manson killers? I mean, you have to come out of this movie with questions that you then talk about outside our questions really is who is? Tarantino. After all, Here's another immigration not least he is a micro historian of the film biz with imagination. On top in Vanity Fair Online. There is a terrific video conversation between Tarantino and Leo DiCaprio, who plays the stalled actor Rick Dalton. Tarantino made up that character pure fiction, but he's come to know the guy intimately. As a maybe bipolar type of that era and a very real person. Listen to this. The clip starts with DiCaprio and then turn, Tino It's the day in the life of a man sort of going not only through an emotional breakdown but a trend and a transition in his career, and the realization that time is sort of passed him by the culture has passed him by, but Creating a character that is literally on set working on a job that for the first time, he's been sort of challenge now, Rick about your hair. Well, what about my hair? I want to go with a different hairstyle. Mhm. What is happening more dish? He will you, you you you want to look like a hippie Rick Dalton represented a certain type of actor that came out in the late fifties and the early sixties. Few spots on some television shows few smaller parts and like military ensemble in the background of submarine movies and stuff. People that are comparative to him would be people like Ed Burns. George My Harris, who was on the show route 66 Ty Harden, who was on Bronco and then eventually he landed on NBC on a TV show called Bounty Law. On the same year over on CBS. Steve McQueen landed on a very similar show about about a hunter called Wanted Dead or alive and for a period of time. They were kind of similar and fame and and popularity. They were a certain type of leading man. That was promoted back then handsome, rugged guys spent their whole careers running pocket Combs through their pomp adores. But by 1969. They never saw this happening. The culture had changed. And now the new leading man is not he man kind of macho guys that put pomade in their hair. It's skinny, androgynous, shaggy hair type guys. So now it's Michael Sarah Zan. Now it's Christopher Jones. Now it's like the hippie sons of famous people like Young Michael Douglas and even Arlo Guthrie, starring in movies, You know Now, if Rick is going to get a part of one of their movies, he's probably gonna be the cop who's busting them. Rick doesn't understand any of this stuff. As far as New Hollywood is concerned. If he was offered deliverance, he turned it down. What No one wants to see that. I want to see that he's wrong, but he doesn't know that it's the Hollywood he'd been taught. It's.

But if you guys are in there, we can't do our job. The differs us from going in there, so please. Listen to those mandatory evacuations.

Downtown seattle to the federal district. Court house walked the clerk's office Presented it to her. She looked at the caption and she said. I've been expecting this. This was a complicated lawsuit on its face. It was about spotted owls but it was really about old-growth but it was really really about finding out whether the government was breaking the law or the lot self was broken. The first law in question was the national environmental policy act its main requirement. Is that the government. Tell the truth and disclosed the consequences of its decisions team. Andy's contention was that by underplaying. The spotted owls population requirements by sticking to the number five hundred. It wasn't telling the truth. The other half of the lawsuit was based on another law. The national forest management act and it says the plan that you adopt for managing these force has to protect to survival. The viability of all native vertebrate species. The core of their argument hung on just this one sentence but it gave all the power to scientists. Not politicians are timber. Executives did determine what constitutes a viable population. And basically it meant. You can't knowingly drive in animal to extinction. We said look these plans. Don't do it because spotted owls.

Building The First Sustainable Farmland Investing Company with Artem Milinchuk
"What exactly is farmland investing less specific on this and then how does farm together actually work absolutely so farmland investing is very much a real estate investing but it does have some unique qualities. real estate investing means that when you buy a property you typically expect it's priced to appreciate either through just longtime trends or through improvements and then you expect some sort of income from rental income or some other revenue streams and farmer is very similar so something that a lot of people don't know is that forty percent of farmland today is rented so farmers very comfortable renting renting out land. When you invest in farmland you buy a piece of an existing farm that farmers typically rented out or contracted out to inexperienced farmer. A newest investors receive cash flows from that land and participate in price appreciation and farmland has appreciated by almost six percent in the last Fifty years annually. Fire nation these kind of numbers and the type of opportunities. You need to be thinking to be outside of the box. Because that's my next question. Artem is how exactly does this. And by this. I mean farmlands compared to traditional investments. We were talking stocks and bonds which should be considered the more traditional investments that you know of course these days with things like game stock and all these other crazy things going on in the world are stocks really that traditional like who knows what the future is going to hold. But how does farmland compare absolutely and when we talk about returns we also want to talk about brisk so investing is two sided coin Since nineteen ninety-two farmland has delivered on average Annual total return switches price appreciation plus income of more than ten percent annually. And that actually compares really favorably with stocks with bonds. Even with real estate with infrastructure timber other asset classes out foreign actually outperformed almost all of them and then on a risk basis which is another way to think about his volatility. Farmland volatility is only about seven percent in that period which was much better than stocks and very comparable to real estate And

Ojibwe Historian Discusses the Problem With America's National Parks
"This week. A conversation between tracy hunt and david troyer about how to make america's best idea better. I'm julie longoria. This is the experiment. A show about our unfinished country. David grew up on the leech. Lake reservation in northern minnesota. It's near what they call the mississippi headwaters region and it's about one hundred miles from the border with canada. The border lakes are basically how we travel and have traveled for centuries for generations. Native people would use these waters to visit each other and trade among different villages. It's basically a highway a watery highway and when he was growing up a new national park called voyagers was opening up right near there. Basically the part was plopped down in our yard. And david says that's the way a lot of national parks were created all throughout history. You know i think. Many americans imagine these national parks are made out of these. Untouched pristine natural landscapes. That's not true. People were living there. I like glacier. National park was established. Exactly a black homelands and the black feet reservation. Boundary was pushed off of what became glacier so they took the land directly away from black. Beat the black. People weren't allowed to hunt or fish or trap or harvest timber or worship within the confines of glacier the parks were set up in such a way as to deprive native people of our homelands and our treaty rights. The parks were just another way of taking. At least from native people.

He knows he wasn't elected that he's just there because kennedy was assassinated.

It's never really out of mind for either of them so at dinner that night with the doctors. She'd heard what they thought about his fitness. And we're going to give him a thorough medical going.

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach
"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.

Exactly how many jobs are at stake is a matter of considerable dispute ten to fifteen percent. That's all but it was a lot more complicated than owls versus jobs. The timber industry was already undergoing massive changes that had nothing to do with the owl an economic recession in the early nineteen eighties drove a lot of meals out of business. And those that survived adopted new technology the resulted in even more layoffs in the nineteen seventies. It took seven mill workers to turn a million board feet of logs into lumber in today's modern computerized mills. The same amount of timber creates two jobs or less. The recession hammered the final nail in the coffin of had once been thriving timber unions in the northwest and then there was the issue of exports timber companies were exporting raw logs overseas without milling them. Here i which meant they were exporting. Those mill jobs to some workers including those who have already lost their jobs. Say the real problem is in exporting raw logs. Well israel over the course of the eighties even before. The owl timber jobs that had once paid a premium turned into average wage jobs. These were just like the changes.

I was usually making big money. Timber was the economic lifeblood all the small towns in the santa canyon and many of the small towns throughout the northwest. If you didn't have a job at the miller in the woods you had a family member or a neighbor who did it and your kids probably played on a baseball team sponsored by the local timber company was a good. You know then. It was a good feeling and the seventies and eighties. We'd figured we're going to do this. Forever stephan planned to log until he retired. He even built up a business.

"Ten cutters in the morning. Then you'll be compensated very well for. So what was with the rush. Well there was a court date on tuesday and there was fear. The judge could side with environmentalists and put this logging on hold so the followers were racing to cut the trees. I was on the ground. It was kind of a done deal so on easter morning stephan. His crew got up before dawn piled into their trucks pulling snowmobiles and headed into the woods where they were met with surprise. Logging crews arrived at five thirty this morning to find thirty protesters who sealed off the entrance to the site. The protesters were standing shoulder to shoulder across the road. And holding signs stating save our old growth than earth i. The loggers stopped and discovered the media. Was there to this morning. Confrontation seem possible but both sides chose to talk about the issues rather than fight over them. it's not. It's not a yeah this argument productive. You got a cruel man. i'm paying.

Our views were dramatically different about the situation. So at that time there was any there wasn't any middle ground you know. They just didn't what that timber cut. They didn't want any timber cut. Stephan in the lagers have been hired to cut the trees but they weren't the protesters real target. That was the logging company that bought the timber in the us forest service which made the sale many people today might think the forest service is all about taking care of for us but its main job at the time particularly in the northwest with selling trees to the highest bidder for most of the twentieth century foresters and the government viewed trees as crops. The plan was to harvest the last of these ancient giants and replant them with saplings. But for protesters these trees had a completely different value. I drove here in eighty five. And all i knew about oregon was there were lumberjacks and big trees. So i stopped and fell in love with it and never left cotija. Juliana moved to eugene for college. The city was a hotbed for liberal activism. The day before easter she went to a non violence training. And just as it was ending someone rushed in and said they needed people to protect some trees. So caccia volunteered. We arrived about midnight and it was full on stuff was happening. There was people with walkie talkies. Greediness activists have been fighting for years to stop logging in this area. It included groves of ancient trees. Were so beautiful.

Stagecoach has also been axed for twenty twenty one a riverside county health orders said both festivals were quote gatherings of an international scope unquote so too big a risk to take in a state that still battling some of the highest numbers of covid nineteen cases in the country.

We all had high hopes back then right well. April came and went and justin bieber did not come to a city near you. Both live nation and eighty g were forced to make significant staff reductions and their executives took deep. Pay cuts and this. Latest cancellation is more bad news for ag presents. Because it's the parent company of voice which put on the coachella and stagecoach festivals together. The festivals were projected to generate more than seven hundred million dollars in overall economic activity in two thousand nineteen over one hundred million of that was expected to be injected back into the economy of indio california where the festivals are held and on top of that. Nine thousand concert goers were expected to stay in nearby airbnb so that number had doubled from twenty seventeen so the coachella cancellation is a loss for g loss for indios economy. A loss for anyone hoping to rent out their house for the festival and well even the artists scheduled to headliner missing out. That's a gig.

"Of one toe. One other scores tonight, Vancouver beat Montreal 31, which allows them to leapfrog San Jose and San Jose drops down to the bottom spot in the West and FC Dallas beat Colorado. So that's another thing that helps San Jose because Colorado is sitting right now in 10th place with 13 points. Eso they're within striking distance of San Jose to pass them as well. So Again. The earthquakes with this draw dropped down to 12th in the west. But they're right back at it again on Saturday night hosting these same Portland timbers here at earthquakes Stadium That one's gonna be 7 30. It'll be on knbr 6 80.

But be sure, Teo, check out everything on my social media at Ted Raimi Media will keep you abreast of the latest with regards to broadcast coverage and we will be seeing you again on Saturday night is the earthquakes take on the timbers. But you know a lot of good things to get in here tonight, even though you're disappointed, only walk away with a draw. Light. We did see But in my opinion looked like a good performance from Jackson. You're that Jackson. You'll looked as potent as he had in recent memory, and that's one of the things that we kind of have been waiting to see Jackson. You'll have been really He's been pressured a lot. His stock has risen. He's got a target on his back, and everybody's come after him, and I thought that he did a good job and responding to that and having a nice performance. So it was good to see a nice night from Jackson. You'll Jacob, back in your ex played Well, J T Marcinkowski played. Well, I thought that Vasco had a good night. I thought that Rios didn't have his greatest night ever. But I thought his work rate was there. You liked what you saw from the subs and Wanda Lawsky and Salinas and Fiero. The quake just right now unable to get that final finish and ableto find themselves three points, so We'll be at it again Saturday night at 7 30 right here at Earthquake stadium, taking on these same Portland timbers and again it will be on KNBR 6 18. I know you're saying Ted again against members. The pandemic schedule is weird that much I will say, And I think you can all agree that it is weird.

"Cup in Chicago with you know we played four games at home. I think are five games at Walmart. I mean it was awesome deserved. Respect is proud moment for me in the club but yeah they went. You had to go through to get this tournament. CanNot. Say enough about that. I would also say we you started by saying Portland. Timbers. Not just in the last right a long history. Club with changed names, they've changed stadiums they've changed leagues like this is a very north. American championship because people have one things that don't exist anymore people want multiple things they're the only ones several. People play them things teams dropped out there was sixty teams in the country than there was ten amateur teams proteins. So it's a very North American trophy, and you know we've talked a lot about the history of molest clubs. You go to DC United Stadium or their officed. They've got trophies in there. I've never heard of and they're happy about it because they get to put silver things in their office. So the Portland Timbers get that no matter what but I think. To to Doyle's point, there was a level of competition. It was a scene tournament. It was a tournament with a high level investment players like you can pair it open cup in the difficulties. You don't have Toronto Montreal and Vancouver and open. Those are three big teams with you know great histories that are coming into this competition. So it'll stand I think pretty strong and they'll be the only cascadia teams have ever won MLS has back. I'm pretty sure they'll enjoy. Yeah I. I do want to say I. Don't think this is the last time. We'll see analyzes back tournament. I. I do think that the League is going to figure out how to work to the schedule at some point because it was too much fun. There was a lot of skepticism about it at the start but by about their game, it seemed like there was a Lotta by it among the fan base. Now, it's just a matter of figuring out logistics and how to make sure it works economically. But there does seem like a hunger for it amongst mls fans look I just pray that this is the last time we see it in these circumstances right in the middle of the pandemic and that, and that is part of it. As part of intimate. Yes. Repeat that over and over and over is that it wasn't just about the competition in the field, which is, which is really the basis of it, but it's also about the sacrifice that the players made and the coaches made and everybody made to make it happen like it's such a one off thing at some.

I think the the the I I mean the first game was in two thousand seven. May of two thousand seven.

I'd I'd met with Don in Mark I'm with my family actually in two thousand five looking at San Jose but you know when we talked with the the ownership Prior ownership that there was a lot of the steer clear these Timbers Army folks we banned these guys for flares we.

This deal was consummated with Saddam. Stan Hey remember us. Let'S GET MLS PORTLAND. That's awesome so as we look towards the the Mount Rushmore. We've debated this lot for certain teams and Kinda gone back and forth even personally with the clubs that I've played for as far as you. How do you choose between your head or your heart a little bit and You know there's people that mean so much the community in certain ways and the club and then there's just sheer talent in performance on the field you've got a unique perspective of course as an owner but also someone who shares the passion of the fans. How would you make these? Decisions are What type of framework should we be looking at this through? First of all this is not my favorite list get cleared that it it the the outset. I'm thinking just in terms we've got a couple of obvious decisions first and foremost I for the timbers but I think more just the impact. The individuals have had on the club. You know I think you need to have a certain amount of tenure with the club. I we've got almost ten years history this would have been our ten season and MLS hopefully will be our tenth season. Mls If we can get a return to play going in the right way But So I think we've had some success and individuals who played obviously big role in that success. I mean it's it's difficult decision process to go through. I mean we've obviously got a lot of tenure in history as a club pre existing MLS. I mentioned Jimmy Conway Clive Charles. John Bain you know. There's a lot of people that you would argue. Should BE I. At least those three would be on the short list of of names. That would probably be on a you. Don't want those three at least from the NSL era on Mount Rushmore. But we're not doing that today. so I think it's more I I think there's an off-the-field component to it but I'm probably my opinions more of a team locker room on the field kind of thing. All right you see that from an unique perspectives. Kaelin said. Let's get it going. I have three names that to me would be there. And then it gets quite murky. So I'm curious if your names to start with matchup so who would you put up? I goes up I as we get out the chisels for the Timbers Diego Chara so I I'm GonNa with the two-day goes on medical. But but he'd be my might number one and also he was two thousand eleven signing so he's been through with us but the whole ride and me. I don't need to talk up charted to you guys I mean I again. We talked about being able to spend an entire interview. Talk about what's lifelike Panic situation. I'd much happier topic would be just talking. Char I mean he's he's the greatest individual ever such a great guy off the field. Such the consummate team player. He leads other people. You know. Take bigger risks. I mean he's just capable of cleanup at different levels. Passing is unbelievably accurate and underrated You know he's the Talisman in heartbeat of of of this club and he has been you know since since two thousand eleven so He doesn't get all the accolades he's only been on one all star team. It's really been only in the last several years. He's been getting the appropriate national as you. Lonzo was kind of six eight that that guy talked up a lot more. I'd take Diego Char over him in a New York minute so showing. They're both great players. Tell me about scouting him. It's a long time ago now but when you're building that first team to sign a player would have the impact that he's had the consistency it would be. It's a dream come true. Basically what did you see back in those days? Did you see this possibility? Was this in your mind at all or was it just. We'll see well. It's it's a good story because first of all I'm not the Scout. If I try to be scout we'd have big big issues. I I pride myself. On letting the shocker. People do their job in getting myself to a position where I'm at least able to evaluate them but Gavan went to Columbia to to sign or hey per Elisa to scout in ultimately sign hyper Elisa. Who's if you guys remember was a striker on our team ended up having a really bad injury and Columbia. The cut his career short but was a guy scored our first goal at home when we be. Chicago fire but he called me on that trip. And he's like look this There's another player that we're looking at Diego Charlie who's by the way there's a little nuance to his. Last name's pronunciation of any Spanish speakers are not going to try to pull it off. But it's it's I'm mispronouncing Cha Cha you know if I try to get it just right. I just think I sound a little stilted when I just let the record You know he he's like this is a guy who I think. He was twenty four years old at the time. Were be you know a bigger span for us a significantly bigger but this guy. We could build a team around. I think you know. He said I think he'd be the best eight in the League And we are looking at it is is is is more of an eight than six. Obviously he plays anywhere in the middle. Does everything but And I said And and that's the story of how he was signed so we didn't he wasn't in Columbia to look at him by design. They watched him play. They watch like five or six games. He actually John Spencer was on.

I love soccer I mean I grew up playing by just even now I think it's it's getting here it's getting the United States got even on the weekends for example you're getting European occur NBC sports primarily all the Games are available on ESPN plus we're getting an opportunity to watch it and when you watch a soccer game with an amazing uncrowded with amazing atmosphere there's just nothing like it and I think you play in if not in in one of the if not the best atmosphere ears in the United States and Portland Timbers and the timbers army what is it like going out there for a game with the Timbers Army by you I agree with you I think it is I think playing playing in front of Timbers Army and especially when when they're supporting you it is definitely one of the best environments in American soccer and it's you know and it's funny I saw this story before but when whenever somebody before I even played for the timbers when somebody told me that they weren't really into soccer they didn't they couldn't really get into it I would always tell them you know wait until you go go to a game in Portland go see temperatures army experience gaming Portland and you'll see kind of what it is like I think I mean I've never been to Europe like that's what I'd imagine that you know atmospheres in Europe or like that's what I'd imagine like atmospheres being around the world so go experience for yourself because you won't really get a grasp for it unless you see it first hand you know to play and have them have your back when you're out on the field you know it's just an incredible boost you walk out of the tunnel I mean there's no better feeling from me walking out of the tunnel for warm ups and you know most of the stadiums empty but the timbers army section is full and they start saying your name and they start they start seeing they start there's cheers and you know it's it's almost impossible to get goosebumps every time you walk out there so for me it's you know every time every time I've gotten the represented timbers and especially playing fronted timbers army with them having my back you know I I don't take those moments for granted so they're super super unique but it's also it's very special to be a part of I can imagine I mean I see it college football is I think the closest thing.

"Tell us about that story about when you thought you got drafted then you realized that wasn't the case yeah so like you said you know i was expected and you know you go through. Do all those mock drafts and and you know and your name's up there a lot so you're expecting. You're expecting the day to go your way and so i'm just sitting in. I'm just sitting watching the computer here and watching it and waiting for my name to get called and you know as it slipping at each round goes by. You're getting a little bit more nervous than there's that feeling of. You know. I can't eh almost like disbelief. You can't believe what's going on and like how could this be happening to. You and you know all that all those feelings that you get when something's not going your way but yeah i saw sitting there with my girlfriend. Who is my wife now at the time and we're just watching it and you see from the university of south florida so immediately. It's all right. Yes like it's finally happening. You get that joy that excitement and it was one of my team. His name was bernardo and you're and they called his name and and it was just from there. I just shut the computer off. I i think i think my wife and i went to aaa or something and you know just tried to just try to regroup but it is you know that you it's and you're excited and you're and then you think it's finally your moment and everything you've worked towards is is coming true and then having your name was obviously <hes> a nice little nice little <hes> punch in the gut but as i said manage just like it's just like with everything in life you know. Professional sports is professional. Sports is a little bit tough and it's it could be ruthless at times and you know it's it's just something something that you know if you can if you could do that type of that type of adversity and you can come out the other side then you know you're going to be better for it. Will you proven that because you that it didn't end your journey. That would have been an easy way to give up and say listen. This doesn't going to work out for me but you kept on pushing right and we'll share the podcast that you did with your team and you're talking about your journey through threw. It ended up on different teams that you find your way to portland after being a backup after being i think real salt lake rate and having some success and then finding your way which you have to kind of think new at the time that you were going to end up in portland and you go to portland and you ultimately get last season so we're talking about the eighteen nineteen season then you have an incredible run you do incredibly well and you end up winning and going to the championship game of the what an experience that you guys be kansas city kansas city to go to the championship. It's a play in mercedes benz stadium in atlanta. Which is i was there. Last year wasn't their first born about my daughter wanted to taylor swift concert so we ended up their selves my first time seeing places amazing and you ended that be there and that i watched the game on tv gave you read what an what an atmosphere because first of all all your fans were there because the portland timbers fans obviously are traveling atlanta united has done incredibly well which i think is a huge spectacle for the emma last but like you're going all the way back to thinking. I didn't even have academy soccer. I played high school ended up at u._s._f. I wasn't even sure if i was gonna play. Don't get drafted when i thought i was. I ended up going through all these situations situations. We talked about being backup goalie. Maybe not having great seasons leading him bad goals or whatever that may be and you end up in portland an amazing city amazing place with amazing fans and now you win the semifinals in your off to the championship like what was that like to win that semi final game knowing that you've made it to this point in your career and you were the starting goalie for the portland timbers. <hes> you know it's funny. It's funny you when you when you hear somebody else say all those things. It's kind of it's cool. You know what i mean. When you hear someone else someone else's viewpoint of you know your career and where you're at and the different cool moments. It's <hes> you know it's cool. It's cool to hear your viewpoint of like my past and the and the path that got me here and you know i guess i was a little bit of an outlier in in terms of you know making it as as far as they have and and getting to enjoy that moment but you know when you're in the moment and even now you know i'm i'm as you said i'm recovering from injury and i'm trying to trying to fight through that push fat but you know even moment. It's still not something that i've had that. I've looked back on and really been able to take it all in. You know it's <hes> you know i don't. I don't view that my career has reached reached owns that i'm looking for. I don't feel like i don't feel like <hes> i'm at a point where i can really sit back and take that moment in and really enjoy it for what it was yet because you know ultimately <hes> losing in that game still hurts <hes> losing losing that game. It'll hurt me probably for the rest of my life but you know. I think that's a good that's a good question for for you know maybe when maybe when i retire and and i'm able to look back on all these moments and really take them for what it's worth but you know i'm still in the mindset where <hes> that's that's kind of where i expected to be. That's kind of where you know where my path is taken me but it's always it's always the you know the place that i wanted to end up in and and unfortunately you know of course winning winning that game in kansas city and making it to that point was was something that i'll never forget in the and the joy that i fell on on that field in kansas city knowing that knowing that we've accomplished what we accomplished as a team and reaching the finals was was so great but you know like like most things in life <hes> later it was <laughter>. It was cut down and you know how great i thought kansas city was probably just how bad i felt <hes> after that game in atlanta so oh it is cool like it hasn't been a very journey and it has been a very fun and very fun <hes> pass so far but at the end of the day i still still haven't still haven't captured that that trophy. Which is you know what the what the goal is so. Hopefully you know. That's a cool moment but hopefully it's definitely not the best moment that i'm going to have yeah. We just keep going forward right. You're just trying to get better and you're going to have setbacks like you're dealing with a shoulder injury right now. I understand it. You know it's crazy because my wife she's got a bachelor right now and she's not at a plane as an athlete. I mean she works algae trains but just to sleep in the uncomfortableness that she has to deal with going through rehab and dealing with that like i know what it would look like for someone who's an athlete that now has to go through that and your landed on your shoulders. You're doing all sorts of crazy stuff and you're throwing your hands in the air to try to get the ball over. You know super athletic players so i get man. I get what you're saying how you'd hear it from my perspective to say but that's all great and you learn from those experiences but you keep moving forward and keep getting batter. It's almost like the golden position continues to evolve right like we've come a long way with that to where the goal is. I've seen are now seen as many times sweepers right there an extra extra defender when you're expected to play the ball of your feet to where you're not that old right but when you were growing up maybe that wasn't the way you've i don't know if you've had to evolve with that of having the play play the ball with your feet more than when i started playing the physician yeah yeah time so <hes> that's that's a good point. You know it's it's it's a position that's evolving and you're you're supposed to have your feet more and your distribution supposed to be a lot more accurate when you know when i was growing up and going through high school and college collagen was pretty much just capable as far as you can and you know. I was really good at that. I <hes> i joke around a lot but i'm gonna try out. Try to be a kicker when my my going the report but but it is you know it's something that as a professional you know i had. I had to evolve a lot. <hes> you know even though i made it to this point. It's something that i constantly have to work on and you know you're constantly trying to get better at this thing that of jaws about twenty two twenty three. It wasn't something that was stressed about and it really wasn't something that i worked on too much so so now you know as a professional and as thirty and i've been playing. I think this is my ninth year. Playing professional wrestling is something that you know. I still try to work on every day because it is you know you did after you know they say after you die so i think for a guy growing up i'm going to growing up like me going to dish in west different than it is now so i'm just continuing trying to adapt or else you know the game. The game moves on without you if you don't so how about trying to get better at what have you now it's kind of wild we can look at sports and how sports is being disrupted whether it's analytics or positions change into the style playwright but it's true i mean you see it in business. Social media comes in or different technologies. Come in and you see a lot of businesses well. We've been doing this for twenty years so we're going to keep doing it that way. Say well like you said adapt. Dot you have to refine you have to be thinking about new ways of being innovative with an you're also doing this and this is another thing that drew me to you because <hes> athletes have this the opportunity you have this engagement with the fans no matter if you're on a small team or small city or what or a big one and you've just attention to what you're doing and if you have a story way to tell an s._e. This ambitious even if you have five people that are willing to listen to you right that these are opportunities to tell your story and you did that you got an a podcast. You guys is created your own podcast as athlete andrew plane and you're practicing and everything else you have gone in and i get it. There's a lot of downtime but a lot of its rest. It's like we're gonna take on something else. You you created a podcast. You went on other pockets. You're coming on this podcast. You don't see athletes doing that all the time. I get it because there's so much so many different things you have to do different places you have to go you. Gotta ask you though as an athlete. Why did you wanna start a podcast. I think you know initially started. <hes> my my live team may in buddy zero balancing the other on it and initially started because you know we were traveling a ton at the beginning of the season and our preseason trip was it was a month long and you know he's going to be here nine a hotel room <hes> for a month and you know for us. It was something that it was something that we felt would keep us busy and you know i think especially when you're in that preseason mode if you're just wellington on if you're just rolling on every day training or if you're just dwelling on soccer twenty four seven for a month.

"One of the first things i want to start with. Is i all soccer. I love soccer. I mean i grew up playing by just even now. I think it's it's getting here. It's getting the united states got even on the weekends for example. You're getting european soccer walker n._b._c. sports primarily all the l._s. Games are available on e._s._p._n. Plus we're getting an opportunity to watch it and when you watch a soccer game with an amazing uncrowded with amazing atmosphere. There's just nothing like it and i think you play in if not an in one of the if not the best atmospheres fears in the united states and portland timbers and the timbers army what is it like going out there for a game with the timbers army by you know i i agree with you. I think it is i think playing <hes> playing in front of timbers army and especially when when they're supporting you it is definitely one of the best environments in american soccer and it's you know and it's funny. I saw this story before but when whenever somebody before i even played for the timbers when somebody told me that they weren't really into soccer they didn't they couldn't really get into it. I would always tell them you know. Wait until you go go to a game in portland. Go see timbers army experience gaming portland and you'll see kind of what it's like. I think i mean i've never been to europe <hes> like that's what i'd imagine that you know atmospheres in europe or like that's what i'd imagine like atmospheres being around the world so go experience for yourself because you won't really get a grasp for it unless you see it firsthand to play and have them have your back when you're out on the field. It's you know it's just a an incredible boost. You walk out of the tunnel. I mean there's no better feeling for me. Walking out of the tunnel for warm ups and you know most of the stadiums empty but the timbers army a section is full and they start saying your name and they start they start seeing they start. There's cheers then you know it's it's almost impossible to get goosebumps. Every time you walk out there so for me hits you know every time every time i've gotten the represented timbers and especially play in front of timbers army with them having my back you know i i don't take those moments for granted. They're super super unique but it's also it's very special to be a part of i can imagine college. Football is i think the closest thing.
