"Walk away and quit. What do you mean, talked at the beginning of this hour about Simone Biles at the Olympics. So she had. She's the most decorated female gymnast in Olympics history. She's always been a steely competitor, and apparently last night she had one bad vault. Walked into the locker room and then came out in sweats, and she quit because she needed a mental health day. And have you been following the story at all? Yeah, a little bit. I just saw you know that that whole thing she wasn't said she wasn't right mentally right? And so I I was just very critical of this. Not because I mean mental health is very real issue. I understand that. But I saw this just celebrated your with tweets from celebrities and from today's showing People magazine and how strong it is to quit. It's been my experience that no strength is to to fight through adversity. And, uh, and the question I answer this whole frame it to you. If Russell Wilson had a bad first half in the Super Bowl. And went into the locker room at halftime and then came out and sweats and then explained after the game that is mind just wasn't right. So he quit. Do you think that would be celebrated or would be criticized would be criticized. I'd say it's a little different just because there's so many people relying on him. And that's just an individual sport. But but no. Yes, but this was the team competition. She didn't quit only individual gymnastics. It was the team come. It was Team USA missed that part against everybody else. So, yeah, so they are counting on her? Yeah, I don't I don't understand. Like when it comes to mental health. You're like everybody really backs off of that, because you know it's it's your health. Um, right. And you choose to do with your body and your health. You see what I'm getting at here. You get to choose that. Yeah, It's a little uh, so anyway. Yeah, but I mean, I don't know why it's celebrated, and I guess you know if if it was my kids, I would be like, you know, some of the greatest things I've done in my life have been overcoming adversity. You know, and and getting through those kinds of things you know, and getting through whether it's mental or physical or whatever, so and I've had both, you know, as a professional athlete, and the times that I've snapped out of those things, I've been very proud of myself. I'll say that So, Yeah, it's It's just kind of a weird world because I saw says her boyfriend is so proud of her, right. So, yeah, it's just a very different reaction. And then I don't know if it what that says about How we view the Olympics. You know these days? Well, I just think I think Culture has seeped its way into sports, and you know you mentioned you played at the highest level. Uh, you know if one of my kids had quit at halftime in the state championship game I would have been mortified and and I would have done everything to try to talk them through it. And if they just now I just need mental health break in the second half. I I can't imagine that And I don't think any of the kids would have done that. And I don't understand in Olympia doing it, and I certainly don't understand the media all celebrating it. Well, it doesn't surprise me that the media is celebrating it, but, um, yeah, just a It's a different world. I don't know. But you know, it's funny. We were talking today to Mike Blowers. Who does. He does the games? The Mariner games? He's fantastic, Great storyteller. Everything. And you know, we were just talking about how many throwbacks are there on this Mariner team. And he says he just started naming them off because they got that guy would be on my team. That guy would be on my team, so just a bunch of old school guys that don't let you know those kinds of things get to him. Baseball really mental game, right? I mean, that's In fact, my friend are a great reporter Chris Sullivan. He just texted me and he said Glad the Mariners student quit when they were down seven. Nothing last night. Yeah, I kind of what's that? I said, I kind of did. I can't. I was like, Okay, I'm fast forwarding through this game. Right, so it was so much fun and so rewarding, but see, that's that's what you get when you suffer through a little adversity get some great things..

How Zamboni Driver Helped Carolina Hurricanes Win Big Game
"We can't begin the show without talking about the biggest story to hit hockey since what out. Foster Scott Foster. Probably the Glorious Song I don't know so. What was the last hockey story to get on the today? Show Leyla Anderson. Probably and you know what's interesting about it to me. I mentioned Scott Foster. Is that happened two years ago and one of the more interesting things the way he handled in the blackhawks handle is he got all these requests. He was asked to go on Jimmy Kimmel and the Today Show People magazine. And he turned it all down because he wanted to be about the franchise throat. Meanwhile Dave Ayers technically property of the Carolina Hurricanes Right now. We know they don't say Tom. I'm going to rename top golf. Airs Ball David Errors. Of course is the forty two year old goalie from Whitby Ontario pro previously experienced in the Allan Cup Hockey League where he played for the Norwood Vipers. For Eight Games He was the is the Zamboni Goal Zamboni driver for the Toronto Police H. L. Affiliate the Toronto Marlies He became just the third emergency goaltender in the modern era to play in the NHL when he went out and played for the Carolina Hurricanes against the Toronto Maple leafs on Saturday evening the marlies Zamboni driver playing for the enemy and You know he beat the leafs as everybody knows but are you surprised that the like the hurricanes if there was any team in the league where I was like. This is a team that could play that. Well in front of Amateur goaltender like maybe Dallas would be the number one. Maybe the islanders would be just by the systems they play but Carolina basically saying you. Don't get the PUCK ANYMORE TO THE TORONTO. Maple leafs was something. That was entirely predictable in this. In this scenario my opinion I don't think the hurricanes got enough credit for this guy getting the win one hundred even like after the Game Rod. Rod brindamour comes into the locker room. Talk about how the team played in front of that guy for that guy. Four David eyres eight. Which is an incredible thing. And you know what I was just talking about. Who Remembering when his team had a goalie. That didn't show up. She showed up late so they they had to play six on five. Like we couldn't score a goal on the empty night. Even I mean it's amazing. How the mind works how. The effort level works in that Carolina Hurricanes team. You can't say enough about. I Mean David. Eyres only had eight eight eight saves on ten shots. I mean you know you put a lot of guys in the net with a a modicum of of skill In the position and have that performance in front of them. They're going to have some success so all the credit to him for stepping in there and getting in front of pox but man that I mean Jake Gardner was just laying out out there. I mean it was unbelievable to watch imagine if Michael Hutchinson head that Michael Hutchinson now property of the Colorado Avalanche. Because of course we're going to talk about the trade deadline. But you know I think the reason why this story resonates with so many people is that in the little child and all of us. It's the dream of a fairytale at forty two years old. He's the second oldest player ever to make his. Nhl Debut. And I guess just to put a tie on this as we get into the trade deadline talk. Think BACK TO MEETING SCOTT. Foster one year after his big day where he was the accountant. Ben Saved what was it? Fourteen minutes of scoreless hockey for the Chicago Blackhawks against the then mighty would peg jets and you know he didn't do any interviews for a year and he said at one point. I called it the incident and I had to tell myself just because you take advantage of an opportunity doesn't mean you can enjoy it so I'm just glad that day there is enjoying and enduring with all of us because we all seem to be enjoying it
