"Sports with katie. Nolan is fueled by gatorade. Whatever path you take the greatness gatorade is there to fuel it. Greatness starts with j. i think sandy's domino. I actually love well allegedly. I don't think you can just say. I think we might get a phone call that hello fat lips. Welcome to sports. The podcast into the question mark but i wish could just start with what happened to travis because i still don't know and i know you guys don't know but this is the most teased i have a story. This podcast has ever had. Travis texted sent a group text to the union. And i this weekend. Saying something to the effect of i need to. I have a story. And it's a picture of travis with his lip busted covered in blood. But this is the podcast instead that ends with the question mark and it starts with a question and so i'm katie nolan. He's travis like me. She's chris kid even spoil and this is today's question it's in the way. Hello katie and the union. This matt from grand rapids. I'm currently at a wedding. Where i know only the bride and groom. What's your go to Meet strangers at an event. My is honestly while it's very strange. not going to say it not gonna not gonna lead with my openers Love you mean it. God this is christina. You said it. This is towards my nightmare for me if i can. I'm trying to do this with a dash of self-awareness. I'm sorry to say this. it's harder now that there's a possibility people might recognize me. Because i'm a stranger but i don't know for sure that everyone else. There's a possibility that i might not be able to blend in. Which makes it even weirder. Because now you're just like be your best you alone at a wedding. I know what to do with myself. I've never been in a situation where i only knew the bride and groom but i have been to one where I was dating. It was my boyfriend at the times friends and he was in the wedding party. And so i i barely had he had you hung out obligations to yes yes and strangers but a lot of them were like. Oh you're matt's girlfriend. So i could hang out and they were nice enough but it just is a. It's a weird. It's like being at a party. You weren't invited to what it feels like a party of people you don't know and they're not gonna kick you out but like did you want to be here really. I'm here to support these people who i like. It's tough. I don't think. I have a go-to travis. I bet you crush in this situation. There's a few places one is if there's a cocktail hour yeah because it calls from mingling can move around yet but don't you don't wanna be that person you just goes up to people at a wedding. And so how do you know the sal where we so one thing is if they have little tables that people are kind of hovering around you can join especially if it's If they walk around with like or There's really good ones. Those can be kind of the icebreaker. Like who in which way travis. Let's imagine i'm i'm bringing around trae. You're standing at a table. I'm bringing around a tray of stuffed mushrooms. Ready seem just about stuff. Hey do you guys want you. Want some stuff mushrooms katie. You should really try these. I had one earlier and they are really good. Oh that is great. I love. I'd be like okay do you. Even if you haven't had one yet you can lie just to create that conversation travis's saying start new friendships off with a lie and look. I don't want to endorse that idea. On the grand scheme but in in in this little tiny level of like at a wedding. Or you're probably never gonna see most of these people again. I do endorse that. You can have a little tiny lie just a small one not one that if these people do somehow become your very best friends it's going to come back to bite you in the but like don't tell them that you were once on. Mtv show making the band and you lived in the house and you almost made it to open. But you didn't. Because ashley parker angel beat out. Don't tell them that will make you seem cooler and more interesting. But that's gonna come back to bite you in. The bus told me like the six girl danny to kane. Nobody remembers she will. They all were six of them. I've seen you just missed the cut. I don't even man yes. The farnsworth bentley. Anything travis says is going to be better than anything. I can think of because when you when you started your scenario with high stuffed mushrooms. Am i instantly. Panicked like say so. Anything is rather unique. Mushroom yeah i would. I would eat it and then just drops on my dress. I do something weird with the napkin. Second i put it in my mouth. Someone asked me a question and now i'm awkwardly trying to like swallow all of hole so i can answer the question like start choking us. Yeah oh my god. It's a disaster. If you're dying we if you're alone wedding brought up an important point you don't have any allies don't eat. Anything with small flecks a parsley in it. Because you have to ask if you have food in your teeth and you will go the entire leading with your teeth. Travis go ahead the other thing though is if you only know the vitamin groom that means that you can hit the dancefloor and just go wild. It really does sound like travis. Experiences freedom in this situation is read. You and i flourish rushing sense of. Everyone's gonna notice we're alone and not talking to anybody and travis like you don't know anybody go dance and lasting. I wanted you as dance. Because then now my body's moving around and i'm by myself and see yeah and people know that i'm the loser. Dancing by myself and travis is thriving. Go to the kids. Go to the little kids win over the little kids or the old ladies and then people will be like. Oh that's nice guy. I got the grandma on your side. That's the great thing. Go ahead travis. I know you can't put in because you got that big old lipin. It's hard enough to talk. We'll stop you're right though you go dance like if there's a little girl or the grandma dance with them or through just a group of girls go over there and like try to dance with one on spin around because then the rest. The girls like oh i wanna dance to. Yeah well the spinning around of its we see you. You know we see right through that when you pick up a little girl near the stranger and you're trying to that's like people always use that as a way to win over a bridesmaid. They're like oh really. Take the flower girl and give her a spin. And it's like yeah. We've seen this move before it gets. We're not impressed by anymore. But then also you. You're going to be seated to dinner. So that's where it gets weird. Hopefully no nothing view and they sat you a bunch of people some of whom were also there alone. Hopefully you're not. The lone loner at a wedding. I would say that's that is the opportunity when you're at that table. I hope that the and groom new me and loved me enough to put me at a table with people that can mingle with that way. I make a friend at that table and having one good joke don't be a ham but having a good joke. That gets a laugh at the table and then shutting the up for the rest of the night. We'll go really far in gaining you friends. Not being the person who has to do. And i'm saying this like as a cautionary tale to myself who has hammed it up before and then loathes herself the next day throw out a funny thing or do one helpful thing for the table like everyone saying that. They didn't get any bread. You go up to the maitre d. or whatever they're called and be like our table get need branka. We got some. Then you win over the table go get around a drinks from the open bar for the whole and then boom you've got people who are like that person's cool. They're not just here for themselves if they're buried in their phone. It's not because they're weird. We should avoid them. It's because they're alone. And that's what i would do if i was alone. It just wins. It gets you on there. You get the benefit of the doubt by their hearts with alcohol. Yes that's my. That's what is allusion and or sneak off to the bathroom and call your favorite podcast. That seems like totally normal. Human behavior to me. And i appreciate that you did matt and i'm also really sorry to have said that out loud because it brought travis payne because travis can't smile without his entire face hurting and i need to get to why because in my head travis got into a fight this weekend and i must know everything behind it but i bet actually happened. Is that like somebody opened the car. Door too fast. But anyway i digress the number if you wanna ask us a question like what the hell happened. Travis is eight six five six five five seven one. Please don't ask that question because we're going to hopefully get the answer now. Hi it's friendly banter. I'm fine christina. You're fine travel. I'd watch ref happens what's up. Remember a couple of podcasts. Talked about like stubbing your on your bed frame boy. Yes all my face. You can't stop a face that's not. I'm not letting you cannot stop. No so i will. I tell the story the side of what i remember that i will talk about peace in my night together. So i i remember. Bring home from from a friend's house junk yeah k. Why else do use uber. Yeah i just wanted to know because you don't have a car. I don't know you don't know the parking situation head. The next thing i remember is Running to the sink. As i'm just gushing blood and like holding it in my hand to try to you know i listen. There was only two droplets of blood in the kitchen. Like a sink. Look like a murder scene. So then like i'm taking tau. Somehow i had the wherewithal. I took club soda. Douse my bedroom carpet. Ooh there's not a speck of blood no way so i had always heard that you can't use it's either. Don't use colder. Don't use hot. But i never remember which until it's not a useful but on blood you're supposed to use either very colder very hot water and that's one of the other the year. It kind of my own accord one of my friends. That i knew that i was with and when i did i didn't have any. I didn't know what time it was. I didn't know like what is happening. How much did you drink. A high drank a lot. Why what was the occasion friday. It was a friday night. all right And in reality looking back at my uber was at one twenty. Six a m. Okay bad boy. I was fastest. Nothing good happens after midnight. Cam nolan was right to call him at three forty five. Am forty one. And then the next morning putting pieces together. I took my contacts out. Oh that's good. Have you ever tried to do that after having already done that. Have you ever been drunk enough to take your eyeball and realized already. Take your contact over the contact case there yet. Well that's where if you were with it. Sure when you wear daily's flick them wherever or you're drunk and you just see capital away. Close the cop. I had a cup that i had with me. I put within the saint. i had changed So my two working there yourself until the unfortunate so my two working theory is the. I don't know. God the first one is i was walking to bed and i had a vertical fan by the foot of the bed in that by my bedroom door. I know i hit it because it's broken demolished and then i'm guessing i tripped into fell bashed my face into the side of my bed frame. Because there's there's lots of blood on the inside of the bed frame. Oh my god and then so theory one is close up before enqvist. God forbid anything. Any other crime happens in your room. You don't want those specs of blood to come back to haunt and then by the blood that was dried on one side of my face is the theories is that i then knocked myself out and lay. Lay out yourself out for there for at. I'd say anywhere from an hour to two hours before i came to it. Working theory number two is that i got up at some point to use the restroom and then came back and fell. But i don't remember falling well regardless you felt because you smashed your face. I had about like a billion whitelaw's though a billion what white cloth. Oh my god. What flavor every flavor. So i i. I've had i had more white clause that friday night than i've had combined in my life because usually i'm okay. I like bring my vodkas not care if you don't do this disclaimer. Don't this is a bad thing to do. This is the wrong behavior. This is behavior that is not to be emulated or aspired to. That's just a the views tweets of travis rock whole do not reflect those of this podcast so after i called my friend and he was like if you need if you need to get taken somewhere like call me whatever. For some reason. I decided to facetime my mom and she couldn't sleep five in the morning to forty five time but yeah like that makes o q forty five. She watching world she a talking to her. The next day she was like i had issues. I couldn't sleep. So i just happen to like kind of be awake and talking her she was like you know trying to ask me what's going on and she's like i'm surprised at like how like well you seem right now like i was like together like like not now. I think the adrenaline knocked the drunk out his me. Yes that's actually take that happens. That's body calms. Treat body chemistry. That's like when you start to when your body kicks into a we can't. We're not around anymore. Something's going on your body hits panic mode. You're no longer drug next day. We'll brother news in at college in a kid fell down the staircase. And he said he came around the corner and som- laying there and his body was like you're not drunk anymore. Get this man to the hospital. I went into my phone like the history. I'm like all right. Let's see if i was on chrome to like if i was determined i wasn't on my phone at least on chrome like past time. I got home. So i'm guessing that i gave weird. I'm pretty sure. Knock myself out and gave myself like a mild concussion. Just napoleon hurt no big deal today. Did you have enough to eat that day. I actually eight. Yeah i ate before. I left to go the party. And then we have Pizza and wings there to party pizza. Yeah because the only time that anything similar has happened to me. I pieced together and it was a little simpler. It was 'cause i had gone to too hard and started to freak out as i was trying to go to sleep and then i remember saying to myself. Oh if you drink water when they will do it you yeah and i remember reading somewhere that if you drink water it could make you less leg day And so i went to the kitchen. And then i woke up on the floor and i was drooling like crazy puddle. Drool on the floor with me. Because i waking up healing my face off the floor and being like why. Go to sleep on the floor. That was weird. Then i got up. And i got into bed and i'm laying down on my white sheets and i kinda was like hold on. Maybe that wasn't drool. And i picked my face up blood and there was blood all over the floor and my pillow case now and i went in. I ran into the bathroom and my like tooth a scarf from it had gone through my lip. I had gotten out of bed to get the water and then just hit my knees to the ground from full standing needs to the ground face to the ground so it was like a thud thud son so my knee was all jacked up. My chin felt like a piece of the bone chip off and was floating. It was ter. And i was also it was still leg day so i was freaking out. It was really bad and you can see on the wood frame on the bed. Like on the side. There is like a couple chips where i'm guessing and teeth. Your teeth teeth leia. they're they're all there but there's sore and then on the inside as were it's the worst and inside of your lip. Yeah oh oh you're not going in there that's what that is not good. Luckily my sister-in-law's you go to a doctor. Did you just like clean it up. Facetime my sister-in-law a saturday morning who is a midwife. i wanna say. And she was like morning technically This was all saturday morning. Technically was three and she was like no. You're fine and then. I liked today unlike center photo. Mike are you are. We sure. there's a lot of white. And she's like. That's it trying to scab in your mouth and like are you doing like saltwater. Incidentally that's the band names scab in your mouth and she's like saltwater nco. Mike yeah it's like okay. Well that's like that's kind of like the same thing as like peroxide it's gonna make it by quite but it just here put adage approx on something yet bubbles and gets all white be. It's hard to sleep because then it just like you just think about it. That's one thing. Is i when i finally tried to go to bed after the drilling down like the amount. The cheer pain was brutal. And inside. put a An ice pack on my face. And i woke up in the morning is strike was on the ground. So i'm pretty sure like passed out with icepack on my face to have you should get origin will have joe stuff rules. I've had enough mouth accidents. That i'm very familiar with or adult whether it be balls off the face or leg day i've never I've never gotten drunk and smash my face. But i've definitely injured myself. I think the most recent was probably about a year ago i Had come home after drinking and also decided to take a little trip to the gym. Little late night sess- after midnight bank. I don't mix oh yeah. Nope doesn't mix well. So i was laying in bed in decided. Okay now. i'm starving. So i get up to make a little like late night snack. I don't know what it is machakos. I truly have no idea. Because when i guess what happened was i took a plea out of my cabinet in turned and must've either tripped over air or something and fell to the ground and i didn't hit my face or anything but the pleats smashed on the ground and then cut open my hands. Also and when you're a fun fact when you're drunk your blood is thin and it just comes pouring out. I had like chopped my hand off inside. I look at the at the time. I was like That's going to hurt tomorrow. Didn't feel anything in the moment. I just saw all the blood and was like yeah. This isn't gonna be good. Woke up the next morning. My entire like arm was just in utter paid. But haven't i haven't smashed my face. And hopefully i don't know if you can see there's a fine line right here. Yeah yeah. I see That's like. I'm pretty sure that that's the the baseboard. Try friends broken to travel. Buddy what are we doing. What's the lesson we learned here. Don't put a fan for your bed. Were you walk in the bed when you walk in. It might scare you. Cause you to walk into doesn't even work tripped over. Show you think defense broken like theirselves into it. Maybe fell into it. Maybe you tripped over something else. Maybe your brain was just like we're gonna shut off for a sec and then you fell into the fan. Don't be maybe your victim blaming right. Now that i can ever work again speaking of like demolishing your fan because either you trip over it or you fell onto it but it's broken have alleged into something and just totally broken. It is sober face tripped and fell. Yes but tripped and fell into A standing laundry basket like one of those plastic ones you get from like target or something fell into it and leg just destroyed it when you trip and fall into the wedding cake and you're like oh no. I don't think that's ever happened to me. But i do specifically remember the feeling of fear when you would break something that belonged to your parents or you did something you weren't supposed to do when you were a kid. I remember there. Were these like three hanging photos on the walls of my bathroom. And i was blow drying my hair and i lifted my elbow up and bumped just a little bit one of the pictures from the bottom so lifted it off the nail that it was on slid down the wall and smashed and i remember the feeling in my body that was immediately like i want to go back to five minutes ago when this happened and i want to be that katie and i wanna stop blow drying my hair. Because i don't even need to do this right now. Because i don't want to deal with the consequences of what's about to happen to me such a terrifying feeling of dread when something would break and you were a kid and you were like all in trouble and dorsey part is so. I've had mashed potatoes. Macaroni cheese ice cream. I've had a worst part. Yeah attracted sounds in. What are you talk to eat like a grown baby. But you don't get the satisfaction of like food. You're just like well they. Blenders blender technology is very evolved. Now you could probably blend a steak right up. Look my water bottle like i can score it because it hurts to dislike live pucker up so i just like skirt every time anytime soon so that was my my weekend. It sounds like a good weekend in general not. Nothing happened any other days right. What's i didn't hear you said you'd nothing happened any other days. You didn't like lose any money or no. I laid here for the last two days. So that's i mean me too same. I mean i had the majo- again but there was not that much wasn't a whole lot on yesterday. Was a bummer. Yeah well speaking of things on manifest on. I mean season for coming to netflix. This is not an endorsement now. Anyway this is this is. This is a disclaimer. This is a support. Group is what this is. This is helping each other bravely with our names on it. Non anonymously manifest quick. Refresher course is a is a just detached from reality Scripted show that was about a group of people on plane that disappeared and then came back to something later that how many years later in house five and a half years later and to the people on the plane it was it had been five minutes and to the people that are the rest of the people it had been five years And and what happens all the things that ensue from that and boy does it go off the rails and then it gets back on them only to then. You're not even on a train anymore. You're on a plane. It's dream logic that the show operates on but it sucks in the same way. Lost did where it's like. You can't give up till we answer these questions and didn't answer any of the questions and then it got cancelled and everybody was like and it now. It's back which is simultaneously. Great news and awful news. The great news is light at the end of the tunnel. I'm going to be done with this. Show the awful news is twenty whole episodes more of the show. It's an hour long right. I think so. Yeah if you're doing twenty episode season. And i'm gonna binge it but they're going to break. I think they're going to break it up. You're not going to release all twenty whatever either way. There's twenty more episodes of the of of this and if they don't wrap this show up. I will devote my life to destroying the people involved in creating it. if it doesn't come to an end that make sense and be pissed yet because the pain of watching how it ended was at worse than my face really that both. I appreciate speak only for yourself. It's worse than the pain that your face caused you but your face is causing us pain as well at this moment and i'd compare them. I'd say they're appreciate the amount of people that tweeted at us about manifest was simply amazing. We've got informants dude. We've got people who let us know when news related to us is occurring. We literally have a source for everything. I know and it's incredible. I'm telling you i've said it before. And i hate to brag but we have the greatest podcast audience of all podcasts. They're the smartest which backfires for us sometimes because they know a lot more than we do every time but but they're usually pretty gentle about it. That i just stupidly opened the red at while in the middle of a sentence and got distracted. Because it's hard to look at people talking about you and try not to focus on it. Did you know that each eight to eight is like the big. There was a huge like manifest movement on august. Twenty eight because of the flight number. Oh god makes sense. Oh god yeah. I saw a lot of people tweeting at us at you. Guys was collateral. She's never seen it you to do with this. I haven't seen it. You guys have told me not to watch it. So i was home alone all weekend. My boyfriend was away. So i take that time to just find the weirdest strangest whatever i wanna watch on tv I really for a minute a really long minute on saturday night debated starting manifest. Because nothing else on do you. Who watched instead what. I watched cooking with paris hilton. I actually and let me tell you. I can't let me spell yoder move here. Thought my decision was you know it why were in. They were right a ball. Anybody who's looking for something so mindless that combines my favorite things which is a cooking show and just stupid reality. Tv this is the show. She brings on famous friends. Kim kardashian also internet internet people. But what's fun name. Any other people who else coal-rich richie doesn't count have you even scotland's that'd be amazing nikki. Glaser is on. It and says whitney cummings they were both on it It says she cooks the whole thing. Is she picks a recipe and that invites a friend over they cook it and then they eat it and everything about it is just. It's just so it's so paris all of her all her like what they cook that. It's so hot they cook. Every what's crazy to me. Is she talks like she's like this so hot like as she's cooking and i'm like i love this. I'm eating this up because it's reality. Love it trash. But they're also cooking and they're not bat like she's not a bad cook so it's like she's actually making god held in paris hilton. Become a good cook. Good for her definitely never needed to know how to do that. She's a turkey aside help in the mount and everything like all right maybe or maybe she just likes to cook. I mean people can like to cook. She could be a really good cook. And i'm going to choose to believe that parasol in is a very good cook That i absolutely love it. It's six episodes or twenty minutes long Go and love it and binge-watching all in one night if you want to like i did It combines the best of all worlds basically cooking reality tv and it's mindless you don't have to really pay attention. You have to like the specific worlds. The christina seems to like i understand if you don't like people go right ahead interest not pay attention but if you do happen to like all the trashy things i just said go right ahead and love it. What did i do this weekend. I watched tv. I think not even i. I listen to podcasts. I watched a little tv. Oh my god. Myrtle threw up on dan. All know we're sitting on the cow. He had come home from the road. This was the weekend us was to go. But i couldn't go. My mom got sick and so key came he left. He came home saturday night. Really late sunday. We were sitting on the couch talking to each other for a couple of days. Heavens great conversation and then all of a sudden It she normally will do her her and then you know she was she. She was on the couch with her head on dan's lap. And she just all of a sudden just went pie and just cuter wholemeal in between the couch cushions and onto dan's leg. And so we were like what like. I was so stunned and it was armed. It was upper body day. What do you call it when it's not leg day but you go to the gym armed day chest chest day drops going girls had chest. You don't say traps day. That would be a very specific day. Anyway it had we had hit that we had hit our workout so it was so funny and i was in such shock that it had happened because it came out of nowhere in the middle of like an important conversation and i were having that i was like i kept going. How could it was between. I was on the verge of like laugh crying and also crying because my couch was now going to be covered in dog puke It was. I just crumbled to the club soda. Cleans it up probably to what. I don't have clubs soda in my house. Because i don't drink vodka soda and you wouldn't either unless you also had a bottle of tito's like i don't have club soda my house but thank you for the advice. Two days late leader. We got it out. It's fine but it was just you know. Imagine you're just looking at the guy you and you're having one of those really nice sundays and there's your dog and everything's great and you're all said and you're both like what what. Dan pulled his shorts off. It was like a whole thing but she seems to be. Okay now i think was having some sort of an allergic reaction. Because her skin was all underneath offer was all red and bumpy in certain spots and then our year was all red. And i was like damn i gotta take her to the vet tomorrow and then. She woke up today and she was fine. Everything was fine. She ate her food. She had no problems. It's very strange. Why clause you have spent a weirdo. Probably a lot. We're trying to piece together night. But her memory's useless because she only remembers a couple of words so yeah not really helpful and she can't really communicate with us but yeah i think that was the i hate to say highlight of my weekend remember last week when i told you i had the best pizza that carbon pizza from the antique bar bakery had obviously talked about it at length today and saying that i had my best dinner when he wasn't there and so we order. He was like i hate to do this. But would you wanna order again. And i was like. Why do you hate to do that. I would love to order it again. We did and i was so nervous. 'cause you know when you rave about something and then you show it to someone and then it might not be and he took one bite. And he's the best thing i've ever had. And i was like yes and then halfway through when we're still eating and watching probably jeopardy or maybe the challenge He turned to me and he was like. I've thought about bringing up how good this is again three more times. Every bite is good. And i'm like i know so if you happen to be in this very specific neighborhoods. Go to go to that restaurant and get the pizza because it is incredible the challenge. We haven't talked about that at all. You haven't watched it. No no. I watch it every wednesday night. Yeah it's This season it's bothering me because it is simultaneously taking itself too seriously and it's leaning too hard into the we're like an action movie so it's like these useless explosions that have nothing to do with the challenge. Like literally the thing. They're competing in but they're just supposed to make it look like fast and the furious and then yet they're also leaning too hard into the where the fifth major sport and it's like you can't be both you can't be a movie and also a sport you have to pick which one you're trying to be yet i notice they love to do you know the explosions to make this crazy. Challenge when all it is. Is somebody dropping things out of an airplane. You catch him. You put them in a bag. You run to the finish line. Like is very simple. They need like i miss. When there was like five people working out and the rest were just hammered and land by the pool. Now everybody works out all the time. I remember when it was like evelyn was only one working out. Yeah yeah not going to the gym working out. That's different but yeah so it's it's good it's good. Ct is starting to look like old school. C. t. in the sense in both senses that number one. He seems like he's being less responsible than he was before. I think he might be single now and the number two. I hate to say that these two go hand in hand but man he looks hold. This isn't the fifth he's not nath. It's not the sports so we're good right now. They're trying to see. Ts reminding me of when i had a dumb crush on him back when he first started being on tv. But that's neither here nor there and not to be shared as public knowledge. That's just between us and our close friends who listen to this pod who feel remember complimented a few minutes ago so you should be nice to main. Pay it back by not telling anyone. I said that. See tease pretty hot. And that exactly that particular brand. Unfortunately does it for me because of where and when i was raised. It's not my fault a product of my environment. What else i can. I ask you a question. Do you guys watching youtube. Yeah well specifically what what kind of. It's a good question. I mean like people. Talking about youtube and youtubers no have they. I was watching a video the other day and somebody bleeped the word attack. They were like he attacked her and they bleeped the word attack. And i was curious about that because look i haven't been. I haven't watched youtube videos and wild. I don't know what their whole deal is right now. I know there's a lot of things you've got to get around in order to make your ad sales ad since money or whatever and there's like guidelines and stuff i know have missed a couple rounds of those since. I used to make youtube videos. What are we doing are we. I haven't we just bleak words. That sound mean now. I don't know. I think maybe i don't know if that's a guideline or like a rule. I don't know if maybe they're just trying to be sensitive to the audience which i get. But there's an oversensitivity that has a negative effect. Yeah because if you are the way. I see it is because i've watched videos where people get like bleep crazy and now you're leaving too much up for interprets confusing. What what are you leaving out because if your bleeping out something that's really not that bad to be saying in the first place then now. I'm assuming far worse right. Or it's also like i dunno. Let's just follow the story. Say we're like person to the person so that we can have that out in the open. Now we can assess it and discuss. Because if you're bleeding divert if your bleeping the verb than how do i yeah. Yeah trigger weddings. I understand or like heads up. This is sensitive content. We're going to be having Vivid descriptions of whatever but Bleeping the word violent is like what are we doing. I'm gonna pick a word episode and disability bit even though it bad and then you have to go through and bleep every every time we say. And we're not gonna pick that already like these are just since since fragments. What's happening on the mental health. Update house every. I mean travis. Are you in the protocol right now. I think physically it then blends into mentally. How are you doing. I'm just a little worried about your brain coach. Try to take my helmet. And i said no. I'm staying on the field now. I worked yesterday on sunday. Getting any headaches any residual headaches headache early today might still be from the little ones like bright lights. Don't bother me. Not getting like nauseous or anything but i mean i'm member working theories i knocked myself out some guests and i add a little concussion but you know at least there was one. Knockout this weekend. Send you got to play through some things sometimes. I mean that's not no you don't Again the views of travis have literally never reflected the visas potassium through it. You can take a break. Take talk. I saw yesterday. That was really funny of that. Trend words like how bow now now now and it's like you take a picture view looking and saying the opposite and it was a person being like taking a break for your mental. Health does not make you selfish and then during the freeze it was like unless it's me you're doing okay. It's taking a day off and doing nothing does not make you lazy unless it's you to themselves in a mirror and i was like boy. I've never related to talk more than this one. We were like everyone. It's okay except me. I'm the worst. It's bad when i do it so. That's my mental health update. That's where i'm at. I'm trying to figure out what my life means. And what i want to do with it and i hate thinking about any of that because also big. I hate when every. I know this sounds stupid but when everybody goes what you want and you're like i don't know somebody to tell me what to do next not me i don't have to do it. What do i want to sit in my bed and watched dumb. Shows all day duh. It's not viable. what why. What am i supposed to one. Oh i did absolutely nothing this weekend. So all day yesterday Laid in bed. Watch take talk. I saw take talk like that. And the caption was something like What anxious people do And it was like you know talked to therapists and then during the freeze frame. It's like Random body aches and just ignore it and just like that like things that come with being anxious and or depressed where your body aches. Your scalp is itchy. And you don't know why you're over thinking it and you get random headaches and you'd like stress headaches you don't know why all of the signs of hey i should take care of myself but i'm too anxious to then further to consider the way on which i have to take care of myself. So that's what i did all day yesterday Let's fun talks that just further told me that i'm anxious. So that's all right. Let's do nothing about fog it into bed. So that's a victory. That is exact compared to travis. We all won the weekend so travis. Thank you for your service today on the podcasts. I don't know. I was going to have travis. Tell me the news now. I feel like he can't use his mouth. Mets given fans thumbs-down obey players. I should say yeah One of the paul brothers watched it chavis. Dan came into the room in the morning and said tell me without the immortal he no. He walked into my room into the bedroom and he goes. I owe you. I'm going to give you fifty dollars. And i was like why he was like. I wanna watch that. Paul brother fight and i was like no i said no and he was like i think i have to and then i watched him. I'll tell you more obviously but go through the progression throughout the fight that i went through the last time i watched paul brother fight room like okay. Welcome to where i am now.

I feel prepared traveling on the other hand. I don't know how much he'll be able to offer considering he did not watch any listen. I'm playing her okay. That's doesn't use it as an excuse you're choosing to play. We tried to take you out of the game. You're choosing to play you. Don't get to then say every time you suck that you play in hurt okay. You can't but i his podcast brought to you by so tell me how you want me to tell people about mandy As if you're steve.

Let's let's undea -ception they're designed by the country's top softness scientists to be the softest thing you've ever worn period. I feel weird saying period in this context.

Go to me undies. Dot com slash nolan. That's me undies. Dot com slash nolan ipod. We did it what happened this week. And other than what. What happened in sports travis. So heavy byas and francisco indoor from themselves in a little. Pr problem They've been losing a lot lately. The nets have. Yes and as a hobby. Baez who's newly acquired from the cubs cross home plate. He gestured with a thumb down sunday. Yes sorry yes. Okay sunset right. So it's back to back wins for the first time since august twelfth and he gave comes down with both to stuns as he crossed home plate and then i don't know if he was asked about or if he just volunteered at and he said i played for the fans that love the fans. But they're going to do that talking about doing. They're putting more pressure on the team. When did they boo before. Whenever they've been booed during the losing streak okay and so he was basically giving the fans thumbs down. Okay and then mets President sandy alderson. Gummy read it. It's long and this is the message for mets president. Sandy alderson in a post game press conference today havi by has stated that his thumbs down gesture during the game was a message to fans who recently have booed him and other players for poor performance for poor performance is very hard to say. I would have struggled mightily. These comments and any gestures by him or other players with similar intent are totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated is still his statement. Mets fans are understandably frustrated. Are these is still his. Because there's no end quote. Mets fans are understandably frustrated over the team's recent performance. The players new organization are equally frustrated fans at city. Field have every right to express their own disappointment. Booming is every fans right. The mets will not tolerate any player gesture that is unprofessional in its meaning or is directed in a negative way toward our fans up. This is insane. I will be kneeling with our players and staff to convey this message directly. Mets fans are loyal passionate knowledgeable among other things and more will that was me. That's my edit and more than willing to express themselves we love them for every one of these qualities. So here's the thing. Yes booing every fans right. Sure i guess. I don't think we're living in a time. Where fans need to be reminded. They have the right to do what they want. In regards to the way they treat athletes. I would say that the pendulum is ready to swing the other way. We're fans kinda start to act more responsibly. Because we've found that their ability to interact with athletes and Affect players either physically or mentally during or after a game that the fan proximity to players sometimes has felt a little too close over recent years multiple examples that we've seen of that so it is weird to me to be like every fan has the right to boo. Nobody said they didn't what happened. Was the fans got booed with silently from one guy ruth two thumbs and they're it's like what so does hot you're saying harvey by is does not have the right to boo fans. I don't yeah basically. They're saying you know the players have no right to then retaliate. In say stop doing me like the fans are allowed to boo. That's yeah allowed to say. This feels like one of those situations. Where if i didn't hear from mets president sandy alderson about what happened. I'd be like yeah. of course. I'm not going to hear from the president of the team because it doesn't so shares if look you if halvey by is giving you thumbs down as a fan makes you angry then you go ahead and exercise your god given apparently right tabu but like you either either should make you go okay. I get it. We deserve that or it should make you be that stupid. What do you think that you sucked. And we booed you because you sucked. But it shouldn't either. One of those options doesn't mean that the oh how dare he have you by as in like that. You booed him. Is he being petty. You could argue that is do you guys deserve it. You could argue that but you can't argue. That havi by is is not allowed to express that he doesn't like when you boo him. What a weird stance to take across multiple paragraphs of a statement. I don't think anyone asked. The statement was really weird. And then i do think he buys if he i don't know if he was asked about or just said it. I think he should have said like it's just a little thing. That were you know we've been doing in the locker just i. I think he could have done better. Not just like yeah. We're going on doing the fans here. He whether he says that or not. Because it the way i see it is if you're a fan and you're expressing your right to boo and then the player you or team you are doing then turns around and gives you a thumbs down and now you're offended. What are we doing. You can argue again that you don't like it that you think it's silly that you think it makes them look immature. You can have an opinion on it but that doesn't mean that you should be like you can't do that to me and i don't know he. He can't retaliate. Yeah it's almost like this statement makes met if i were a mets fan. I'd be like shut up. Sandy like don't say that because now you're making us look like we can't take we can take it so like mets fans like okay. Sorry we booed. But i'm also not sorry and we're going to buoy again if you stink and this is so silly. This feels like hobby biocene. Like they're putting more pressure on the team like harvey. Well sure i mean again travis. If you wanna make the point that you think it was stupid. You're welcome to but i think the bigger point to be made here. Is that the president of a team coming out. And basically overly he's pandering to the fans of like our fans are great. We love all of their qualities. And you will not be mean to our fans. But we're going to overcharge them and ticket prices are going to go up even when we suck and we're gonna trade guys that they wanted and we're going to like these whenever a front office says that they take these opportunities to love their fans. they're making a non existent comparison. No one was saying the sandy alderson did not come out and do this. But he did it because he wants to be the guy that looks like he's wrapping the fan. I think sandy's dumb. And i actually love allegedly. I think we might get a phone call. If you say that he acted stupidly. You can class his actions. But you cannot classify him as a person and i love havi buyers and lynda actually the thumbs down. I think it's hilarious if they did. I just think. I wouldn't have come out and said what what it is that we're doing it why not. I don't know i just talked about it. Be about it. I liked it. He's about and then the how he addressed it and was like well. If you're gonna boo me. I'm gonna give you what you know. But he did it. And i'm like yeah all right. That's how he feel the mets owner tweets. I miss the days when the biggest controversy was the black jerseys like you. That's what i'm saying. The mets have this front office that seems to want to be perceived as one of you guys like a fan. It's just like i'm just like y'all but it's like yeah except you own the teams so you have more power than we do and when you use it to say that our team can't give us a thumbs down because you like everything about us that's cool but can you win a world series please. Could you put together a team that accomplishes the thing we want. Can you feel silly silly all around. So let's do the note i do. I give you two thumbs up for that segment. Thanks so much One of the paul's our poll expert. Yeah a resident. Paul expert christina paul expert. Yeah i'd ask her. Which one sues jake. He's the younger one idea. Nope japan his haircut indicates that he's the older one So jake paul fought tyron woodley Taryn woodley's a ufc fighter. This was his first time. Foxing question mark which. I just couldn't stop thinking the whole time and we won't rehash this a million times but imagine being a boxer and watching these to headline a boxing fight in. You're just like what you've never done it before and you're gonna do it for the first time as the headliner against a bigger youtube star Jake paul is remains. Undefeated is spoiler alert. So he's now four and now In these fights that he's picked the other ones didn't last very long. This one lasted the distance. All those rounds and even people like ariel hoani continued to say on the broadcast that i watched that This gets a lot of people. Don't think jake. Paul is a boxer and this removes the question from their minds. I think you can unequivocally say now. He is a fighter. I was like i don't. I don't know that you can tyron would lease and you listen. I'm a dummy and depress anything i say from here on out with. I'm a fight. Sport dummy i dunno damn thing but what i do know is the tyron woodley. Stance did not look correct It was not really a boxing stance. It made their height difference. Look a lot bigger than it. Supposedly was if the tail of tape was to tell. The tape was to be believed It it just didn't there weren't a lot of great punches It made me feel saddened side. Which you know is my default setting at the moment but this helped me right along. There was comfort in watching this because it was so sad. There was no knockout. Like i said it was. It was a split decision. One of the judges scored it for tyron. Which didn't make a lot of sense in a lot of people saying that it was rigged or something then afterwards. Jake paul talked. I was just going on and on about how great of a fighter tyron woodley is which is the opposite of what he said before the fight which is how it led to the fight happening and no boxing is a sport. That's all about promotion but it just does feel now here on the other side of the looking glass. Thanks to the pandemic. The way i look at sports now where i'm just like. Oh so after you beat him. You're like he's a hall of famer and that was specifically part of the argument that he was making to defend himself. When you guys got in your i quote unquote fight. That led to this challenge. That led to this fight happening. It just is like of course how convenient for you so anyway. He said nothing. But nice stuff than tyron. Woodley got on the mike and he wanted a rematch right away which i think if you had to pick for me the saddest ways it could could've ended. That would have been it that you know jake. Paul just said that he was going to take some time and relax for a little because he's been nonstop training and he just wants to chill out because they asked him if he was gonna fight the other guy who used to be on love island on what's going on in boxing but they're just picking people off stuff and putting them in a ring and make them fight each other and i don't get it and i'm not gonna pretend to get it but i am going to say it feels weird from the outside but i guess the guy who used to be on love island who won his is with the guy. No what is his name. Fury no tyson fury. That's no no all you'll look it up. i have i have brooke. Well what i think is the the absolute saddest part of this entire time. If you're yeah you're right. It's very tommy fury after the fight. Paul and woodley agreed to a rematch. If woodley wait hold on wait wait. Wait wait wait. We're getting wait wait. We're getting there. We're getting there was detoured after the easiest part. Excuse he's gonna. I won't you next. Let's get it own. Which means something very different when you say it with a cheeky accent. He so he. He had said that after his fight so then when he was when jake paul was on the mike and he was asked was like look. I don't know maybe. I heard that he had challenged me. But i'm gonna take some time off. And then they put tyron woodley on the mike and he was like i want the rematch. I want a rematch. I think i won. His punches. weren't landing. I blocked most of them on a rematch. And i wanna prove myself and then aerial awani went over to jacob was like okay. What do you think do you want a rematch. I was cringing. I was absolutely cringing outside of my body. At this point i was like. Please don't please don't because if he says he doesn't want it it's going to be so embarrassing and this is already so embarrassing and i just feel sad and dan and told me the last time he saw tyron woodley fight. It had been uncomfortable. I mean he's forty years thirty nine years old. He's just it's all weird. So we asked jake. Paul arriola wanted and jake. Paul was like Yeah i don't know. I was so nice to you. I only said nice things which was like. I hate when people do that. I hate when people take the quote unquote high road in the second year. Like yeah we still have an issue with this. I took the high road and it's like we're still driving. You're not you're bailing on it immediately. You won't credit that you said nice things about me. That's not how this works. But anyway that's what he said and then he was like i'll do a rematch if he gets a tattoo. That says i love jake paul. And then tyrant they aerial. How lonnie even ause begging him in my mind not to took the mike and went over to tire. Would you get up tattoo. And he said yeah bet and then they shook on it and always like you have to. We have a tattoo artist here right now and then i left. I got up. And i left the couch. We're clearly not gonna do this. I can't watch this anymore. And dan was acting disgusted. He was like. I'm changing the channel and i was like you brought this into our house. You did. i watch this fight. You did this and as of right now. I have spent fifty dollars on this because you haven't paid me back yet. Which he had demanded the money. Back for the floyd mayweather fight. I was like. I need that fifty bucks and i need it now. And he had a fifty dollar. How exactly it's my money. And i need it now and so that fight happened. I didn't so. I turned it off before the tattooed travis did it happen are no idea. I refused to do any research. Google watch ice on this on this topic. I don't blame you whatsoever. Because i think this isn't so ridiculous. I just my biggest question. Is it for jake paul. I don't. I'm not saying that. He is not athletic or that he can't fight because he has. He has trained. He is in great physical shape. I do think he can hold his own but why are all of his opponents. Not boxers just taking people whether they're retired far removed or not boxers and having them box him why. Why are we doing that money. Christie his argue e so yeah money first of all and also. That's another thing. Jake paul said is of course he wants a rematch. Wants a payday boxer and fight working. He's doing he's doing it it's promotion. It's like if he can beat the next. It's heat starts with somebody that you're like why anybody could be that guy and then you get one step closer to the thing in one step closer to the thing and then you get there it but what i don't like from that argument is that it's like the people in charge of putting the fight on should be like that's not good enough. You're next fight has to be between you and i don't care if we can sell it. I want it to be quality. I want it to be a good fight. It was hard to watch boxing. Because it's if you don't watch a lot of boxing and then you only ever watched the big fights you watch the good boxers fight each other. You can kind of see the complicated dance of it all and wouldn't to people who don't box box each other. It's like that's not technically right. That's not technically correct. Even if you don't know what is technically correct like it doesn't feel right. It's not as smooth. It's very jerky. It's very weird. If the fight ends in our owellry. I'll fight you again if you've got an i love me tattooed like why disgusting. It's just wanna put your name on another person's body forever is like real. It's just real colonizing energy. And i don't like it like why are you putting your flag in this man. Just let him walk away. You beat him at a sport that he his job has been closer to than yours ever has and now that. Isn't that enough. jake paul. Why do you wanna put your name on him. Another thing and this may be a controversial opinion. But jake paul was talking about bullies. He was saying like. Hey you're bully out there. Don't do that don't bully. And then he was like. I used to be a bully. Because i was yelling. You definitely were a bully. And he's like. I used to be a bully. And then i realized that i could put myself into other passions and so i have a charity. That gets both current bullies. It sounded like into boxing. And i was like. Maybe we're skipping a step. Maybe we don't immediately get bullied into boxing. Maybe we don't get bullies to stop a being a bullies by teaching them how to punch. I don't know maybe that does work. Maybe it's one of those counterintuitive things that ends up working light. It doesn't outweigh. It's like are you. Are you aggressive to other people by a gun. No no no no. We're skipping a step. You're skipping this step in between public you gotta stop being a bully and then once you've stopped being a bully we teach you how to fight and then you do that technically and you learn about fight sport instead of trying to fight other people. But you can't skip the step where they learn the bullyings bad and stop bullying a pimple and jake paul. While i know it's a great shining example on a hill that you guy who wasn't a boxer can just kind of become a boxer by speaking it into existence. I don't think that's the case for most people and especially most bullies. I don't think that they can just be like. I'm gonna be jake. Paul because there can only be one jake paul in and unfortunately that's not even true. We have two of them so it doesn't make a lot of sense as a pitch and i just feel like yes. Being anti-bullying is great. The message just felt like it was getting a little muddied there for for me to your point about like putting on a boxing match that is legit. The problem is worth watching. Boxing is a sport. That just is ran. So bad indies showtime rousers. Aaron these there in the entertainment business. So they're gonna they're gonna sign up for these because if they don't take it someone else is gonna take this jake paul fight deal and run with it and make money but until he is you know legit fighting at like he's only getting drug tested But what i think's going to happen is he's gonna slowly ended up to where he can get a legit fighter who then what's going to happen is he's gonna have to lose soon. So you're gonna get to a fighter that people can respect at least by name who will lose but it will make a lot of money which brings the the rematch of more money. It's all a deal and people complain about it by the fight. That's like saying that any website that wants to make money should just put women in bathing suits on there. It's like you. There has to be a level of institutional like all right. That's too far and it just feels like boxing like well. If people will pay for it will show it to you and it's like you can't there has to be a line and it feels like boxing does not care. Are these like the if he's not being drug tested. Are these not like officially sanctioned. How officials are but like while. I'm i hate dumb not going to watch. It is it not basically w no what. What's the difference. Is that what you're saying. Oh the product. they're putting out payment. Writers. it is it is very it is a it is a sport. It's it's you know they really physically are doing the things other than you know the whole punching punches and getting head. Yeah no. I'm we're making different points part of it. Yeah scripted. it would be a problem. That's why people get mad when these things seem to be rigged this kind of what. I'm talking about where there's this idea that it's all for the money. It's all for the payday but yet fans are upset when things are rigged. Wwe fans don't get upset when things are rigged. They get upset when they don't like the way that they were rigged. When they're like. I wish you had rigged this way. It's like kind of accepted but these are pretending to be or purporting to be fights. And i mean the one floyd mayweather where there was still fifteen seconds left and whichever paul that was turned to the audience and like pumped his hands up. Like this sucks. What is this. It's not real but it's saying that it is so that's why it's incredibly different. Wwe which is just like you sure they tried that at first but then once everybody was kind of like. It's not real. They were like sure. It's not real. And so what it it's just entertain you. This isn't this is supposedly. They've got real people who know about fighting talking about it. They've got the guys that analyze. It's on showtime. It was a showtime boxing. They're calling it boxing. I just feel like if i were a boxer. I can you just call this something else. Somebody real that will just knock him out. But i'm guessing it's in the contract can't knock him out. We think that's in the contract. I bet you they signed a contract and there's a nondisclosure and it's i why would you sign a contract that says you can't knock because because if you're tired woodley who needs some. Who has something to prove. Because i bet you you you don't and you do this song dance you get paid x. Amount in the money that they can get is worth. I'm saying is does everything a price tag on it. It just feels like every time. I look at society now like damn. There's a price tag on every thing. Whatever happened to. I wanna be a good. I want people to believe in me and we'll see how good i am at this sport. Now it's just like. I want people to think that's what i'm here for but really i am getting pay and i get it. I get it to a point but then it's just like it's you and again i get it to like wait. What's the point. I in the pot. All watching. Mrs paul be so excited proud of two minds about it. One i'm like that's cool. She's really proud of her kids. And then to like my mom just being straight talk with me. My mom would be like you got all this success in all this money and now you're to go get punched. You wanna get punched now to go. You don't have to do this. You can go do something else you can do. Why are you choosing this this very violent dangerous sport. Why what is why were this. Come from but you know your is your own so do with it as you will. And with that with that segue not as somebody reels. Your own katie nolan. Naomi osaka naomi osaka on sunday. Tweeted a notes app right but actually wanna rare. Good notes apps on twitter. Yeah one you actually want to read. She wrote the title of it. The title of it was high and she wrote. I've been reflecting over this. I'm going to read it in. Its entirety because i read it last night. I was like cheering while she wrote. So i'm going to read it. I've been reflecting over this past year. So grateful for the people around me because the support i feel is completely unparalleled recently. I've been asking myself. Why do i feel the way i do. And i realize one of the reasons is because internally. I think i'm never good enough. I never. I've never told myself that. I've done a good job but i do know i constantly tell myself that i suck or could do better. I know in the past that some people have called me humble. But i really consider it. But if i really consider it. I think i'm extremely self deprecating. Every time a new opportunity arises i thought wow why me i guess what i'm trying to say is that i'm going to try to celebrate myself and my accomplishments more and i think we all should you got up in the morning and you didn't procrastinate on something champion figured something out at work that's been bugging you for awhile. Absolute legend your life is your own and you shouldn't value yourself on other people's standards. I know i give my heart to everything i can. And if that's not good enough for some than my apologies. But i can't burden myself with those expectations anymore. Seeing everything that's going on in the world. I feel like if i wake up in the morning. That's a win. That's how i'm coming. And i would also like to say i've been reflecting over the past year. I just reread her whole statement. And just say that. That's also what i wanna say. Because it's exactly what i. Because i carly when i read this i was like i carly. She's a she's so great. She's so good at expressing her thoughts and boy did some of us need to hear this kind of stuff to remind us that there is a point where it's like you're you're good enough and the hardest times to hear that or believe that or when you're not doing the things you normally used to do that people would say you're good at that if you're you know changing job or you're not working as much or you lose a job or your. Let's say you're a person who's like a musician and you can't go out on tour all of that over this last year in whichever ways the pandemic has affected you and there are myriad ways in which it could as caused people to kind of see where they've gathered their value from their life where they've found themselves feeling affirmed feeling like yes. You're good even if in their own minds. They were saying no. You're not you're not good enough. Don't stop and then things kind of were forced to stop and that voice in their head was still going but they weren't getting any of the feeling like they were adding things so you're trying to tell yourself that you don't need to hate yourself in your head at the same time that you're also not getting external praising support in ways that you needed before and i think that can screw with you and so two here say that like you got out of bed today you did it is i mean really true you up thing that we needed to hear i. It's just very hard. Yeah it needs when you hear it from somebody else. 'cause you're like oh good because i could not get my brain to sing that song and i needed to listen to it so i'm very grateful that someone played it. It's also like looking at it from her perspective. Her her life is basically a pass fail and not not like how she thinks but like how we look at so unless she wins that tournament everything was like a failure and so the conversation. We had about second place in the olympics. It's gotta be a struggled in it's also deemed good enough and then the second that you win. It's like oh now. I gotta go focus on the next thing and you'll see like i don't care if you don't consistently win gold. Well you did last time. What happened like what did you like decline door. You're not as good as you were or we constantly hold athletes to such high standards. And i mean honestly even day to day i. I know i hold myself to sometimes impossibly high standards and it's refreshing to hear someone say celebrate yourself for even the smallest of accomplishments like you don't have to be someone in the limelight or someone who has a million twitter followers or people that are looking at them and scrutinizing their their past fails you could just be the average every day person and you're down on yourself for whatever job you're doing or you know your your parent in your heart on yourself or how you parent your kid's in this and that you're doing great you got out of bed and you're doing great simple as that if if i may good news by mac miller is a song that when i'm feeling this way i listened to so if anybody needs a song a genuine like actual song That's a good one. I would like to say though if you don't get out of bed and you stay in there for a while. You're still doing well. Oh yeah i'll have to get out of bed. Literally i figure you opened your eyes and then you and then you went back to bed and went back to bed just means closed your eyes than you did it. You did it. You got through another day those all you had to get done. Life moves fast now. Like i was saying this to dan before the beginning of the pandemic back when former generations. When someone was like all right. I got three things to do today. I gotta go to home depot and get lightbulbs. I got a go to the grocery store. Get my groceries. And i have to. I don't know one other thing Rented book my travel for next week. Now you could get all three of those things done in. You could order your groceries online. You could order the light bulbs that you need in like a click and you could whatever the third thing book your flight. Click click click. You could get those unin a couple of hours and then you could do nothing else for the rest of the day. And then he'd be like man. I was so lazy today but we were eight because we can do so much more so much quicker now. I think that we're all like i gotta keep going. It's like you don't you can you. Did you accomplished and now you can do. Whatever you're next thing is mentioning the grocery store. You made me think of something. Can we enter friendly. Ranchera fast Yep this is friendly rancher a segment that doesn't exist except in travis's mind. Why is it when people like drive into a parking lot. They immediately like forget how to function as a driver after. I want to target the other day and it's like the second palma parking lot. Everyone just gets amnesia. And can't they forgot drives. In what ways. Travis do people seem to you as if they've forgotten how to drbble stopping when they can easily can drive through like you've got the right way go ahead. They're pulling out. Maybe they haven't driven a car in a while and the little nervous at their mirror is getting a little too close to that other car. This bothers me in a rush for your target. I'm wanna go target. I'm in and out so then. Just park somewhere far away. Do i had to go get some ice cream more. Joe yeah stuff while now that you've gotten your rant out. I need to then circle back to the original discussion. I think through the pandemic. So over the weekend i was watching Kevin hart heart to heart Who too many hearts whatever it is. It's hard to heart. obviously the pun intended I watched his inaugural miley cyrus. Who you can't stand you. I know anyway. I watched his interview with miley cyrus. Who i absolutely love forever and always And she said something that. I think really resonated where i think throughout the pandemic. It taught me this where for so long. She was taught at such a young age being thrown into the limelight and fame and celebrity. And all of that is that you need to constantly be going going going going. Can't i can't sleep if you're not up at four. Am doing this. And if you're not working late if you're not the first in at work in the last to leave you're not doing it correctly. You're not winning. You're not you know the first to do it And that's just not sustainable lifestyle. It might be for you. But it sure isn't for me and so i think throughout the pandemic a lot of people at least myself have realized that that constant workhorse mentality takes such a toll on you physically and mentally that it's okay to have days of lazy or weeks of lazy or you know the the small window of being productive that you just talked about a banging out all of your errands in an hour and then doing nothing. The rest of the day should not be viewed as a wasted day. You've got everything done. You didn't spread it out over twelve hours more efficiently than we used to exactly. And so i think that you know. Naomi osaka's message is not only very true and yes powerful. But i just think it's definitely you know it. It should resonate with everybody to say you're fine. You're doing fine. You don't help your compliments instead of beating yourself up for. Not you know you make it to do list and you knock three things off but you had fifteen on it and you're just like man. I failed today when it's like no i succeeded. Tomorrow's only has a twelfth things on it. Now because fifteen minutes three is twelve. And so i'm i'm moving forward. I'm accomplishing things. I'm a champion. And i think that's a good mindset to have. I'm sure people will be like own those allied set of a quitter. But those people are idiots and i guarantee haven't won as many things as naomi. Osaka has so to say from their computer screen that she would have. The mindset of a quitter would be hilarious. Just be nice to yourselves. I think is the overall goal has people aren't always going to be nice to for you. What's this what's this next to. Cristiano rinaldo was Rumor to believe in union tez and going to man city. A manchester united fan was upset and burnt a man menu rinaldo jersey that he had been you really every time they do this. Your lighter money on fire Quite literally but like on the eleventh hour man city pulled out and guess who came in to make an offer with the event as to acquire manchester. You say you vent as was at manchester united. Yeah yeah so the fan. That was dumb to begin with gut. A just a nice dose of karma. Did anyone check in on him. No well. I don't know if anybody checked it on it but i just in loved it because just how dumb like it's either you dumb or you're doing it for clicks which is still dumb but i just love that now. This jersey dead. He's spent money on. He could have been wearing. I feel like you just have to stop being a manchester united fan now. I feel like you have to because you can do turn around and root for him that is you jumped the gun and now you have to pay the price. You're not allowed to root for cristiano. Because you said you hated him before. Anything was confirmed. So now you're kicked out and you have to go root for somebody else who knows. It doesn't mean you can refer whoever you want. We won't tell you who you have to root for. But i'll tell you a campy and that's manchester united because you've been kicked out you got ahead of yourself. What if he was gonna come. What if he was coming to united anyway and he saw you burned the jersey and decided. That wasn't okay and made the in demanded that manchester united with the mets do and like scolded that fan for doing that. Like you could have caused the whole international incident. And so i think you were acting very recklessly and the price that you'll pay for that. Is your phantom. Find a new team. I love this. I support this. Yeah that is the. That's my verdict. Do we have to talk about trent doodle. How to just seven there we should. I was being sarcastic in the sense. That just i don't want to He there's a video he. I guess coaches a high school team. Now lipson academy yes He was there's a video that surfaced of him screaming at one of his players Bodos ya oh sorry the it. It was weird because only found the kid's name out in trade in trent. Dilfer 's apology. And i was like just felt weird so important to know the game in which Coach dilfer was this angry. They won sixty two seven. So it on luke. Blowout probably wasn't close game. Tensions shouldn't have been that high but the video shows him grabbing the player inside the shoulder pads and steering him away from the team on the sidelines. Yell sit down now. It was a tight end. Four son of former. Nfl kicker phil dawson. I didn't know that. I didn't either and two thoughts with like we throw that out there. I'm wondering if some people put that information out there it's like to like does it to change how people might think of the story in which wire that he's not gonna oh hit hit will his dad she'll dawson is also the special teams coordinator on the if my dad was a coach and a team in a coach. Talked me like that. My dad would have been pissed just because he would have wanted the opportunity to scream at me. He would dare you. This is why i coach softball team. So i can scream at her it yeah. He's the special teams coordinator. And he was fers teammate. On the browns in oh five th this makes it weird or to me but anyway twin. We should give him his a platform. He released a statement. I want to address. The incident are silent during friday. Night's game versus independence that has drawn a lot of attention. First and foremost. I take full responsibility as the head coach and leader of our team for not de escalating and emotional situation with one of our players. Bo dawson is one of our finest student. Athletes bodies all the characteristics. We're looking bo. Plays the game with the right kind of passionate as an inspiration for during a moment of frustration in an attempt to get our team to play with more disciplined. Sixty two two seven. I unfairly singled. Bow out somehow. Bo dawson has been portrayed publicly as the culprit in the situation when in reality i should have been a better leader and shown greater wisdom and discernment in how i handled this incident overall. I could not be more proud abo- and the rest of our team for the handle the emotional nature of each game the compete. Who was saying that. It was boastful. I'm guessing that there was a lot of people on twitter served it. Yeah i mean look at. We've said this before there's many different ways to what's the actual Idiom there's to skin a cat which is always been weird to me. Who's skinning hass skinning. Cats can we. There's a there's a bunch of different ways to coach a team. There's a bunch of different ways to coach the same like within a team. There's some ways to motivate that work on. Some people's people are motivated by competitions and people are motivated by a compliment. Some people are motivated by like a loving supporting environment. Some are motivated by pushing and pushing not physically but like pushing somebody. It'd be better than what they think they can be. Everybody's got different motivation. Ways of being motivated. It's part of being a good coach. I just don't think screaming at a kid is ever to me the ineffective one. It didn't look effective To me the way it was being received by the target so it it. I'm glad i guess the dilfer has said he takes. Responsibility should have escalated. Emotional situation I i don't watch a lot of lipson academy games. So i don't know if this is par for the course or if this is an outlier But i think especially when you're coaching high school aged kids. You don't have to go so hard it was sixty two two seven I think you had it in the bag so to the people like you put your hands on monkey. He had his hands the whole shoulder pet. I don't have that big event. I think it was like the moving part. I'm torn with your words. So he you. You're saying that the so he like picks him up from the front of shoulder pits couplings. It's he walks in back holding onto show. I think it's bad optics. But i don't think he was like there's a big difference between like putting your hands on a player and what trent dilfer did m. i. opinion. I think if. I saw somebody doing that with the shoulder. Pads in. Like a hype. Me up conaway. Let's go to that would be different. i think. no. I'm saying i think that. Grab of the shoulder. Pads paired with anger to me is like you don't need to be doing that. That's scary has your have you ever had anybody grab you by your shirt. I've i've had my face masks grabbed us a player but by an opposing player will know by the my coach grabbed it and like did what with it but you pullman like he'd like grandma facemask and pulled me and like i. I'd say more of like a stern like a yell. But i mean what what did he say. Don't remember i was like twelve. Is he like you stupid idiot. You should have gotten or was it like come on. You know governor facemasks leak you know. Get to play right or something like that. Okay i just. I just have to see it could have just been. My mom grabbed me by my shirt. Once like picked me up. It was very scary feeling. It's not a good feeling of your body. Being controlled by another person on that immediately started crying and was like i did that and it was only time. My mom's ever. I think apologized to me for something that happened when we were yelling. I was very little but It's it scary. Who have handled it differently. Of course yes but yes. Is it so wrong for a coach to yell at a player. No but he's not just yelling at a player. I'm not saying that you can't yell at your players. Yelling happens not saying it. Tell them all that. They're beautiful rays of sunshine. I'm just saying if you're trying to again. Sixty two seven. I don't know why there were emotions. But he says he's sorry he didn't escalate an emotional situation. And i'm just interested to know what got so emotional. That game wasn't on the line. There wasn't some crazy need to pull together. This is all hearsay. But there's some posts on social media that There was one post. It is here's There was supposedly there was. He had a penalty. I saw ben. Someone else tried say that he came by and said something. Trent exactly what happened. This is useful right because we don't know and because the internet's full of liars i've seen people on message boards. Say they went to high school with me and undescribable person who is nothing like me so it's People on the internet just lie because they want to participate in the conversation. I'm not saying that he should be fired. I've never said that. I don't like saying people that's not a thing i do. I'm saying it doesn't seem like you need to bring it that hard at sixty two to seven game at lipson academy when the kids. Dad is also on the team. Okay but that's just an opinion. I think you take the score out of things. Why why would. I take the context out of the situation because you consider the context keach coach things happen. That's how you would that. That type of coaching would be effective on you when your team is winning. Sixty two two seven getting screamed at like respond. I honestly did respond to like. I had teammates coaches like news. Like good coaches know like certain players. You have to you. You can't yell at every player that say you'll get the same response to me. That's how i would. I responded is the yelling that were me. I'd teammates said it did it. So i think it's i i. I think that it's kinda getting blown out of proportion. I mean well that's going to happen because it's social me. Kill for my sold on. i was solid. Oh yeah it's yeah. I think it's aggressive and i think like you said there are times where that is useful. Maybe this was one of those times based on the information we have. I don't feel like it was but it who am i. I don't know i'm a dummy. So i think you shouldn't do that but travis thinks you should. What okay here we go. It's f. one time. Who wants to take this christina. What you said. Dr watch it but also said via twitter that he had not seen a single second of it so i did read up on it just in case wait wait. We have to start the beginning. This is where we always fail an f. One there was one race this weekend so races the way one works is that you have your qualifying races leading up to the main race on sunday so the main race but just to preface all of this it had been raining all weekend down a whoring monsoon rating all weekend so from the get go from the very first qualifying race. It's been bad weather and so obviously player safety driver. Safety is of the utmost importance so going through the weekend. There was hesitation about driving just given the conditions of the day so going into sunday. It's pouring rain. They realized that the conditions are bad. they get everybody out there and from what i saw. They had two laps with the safety car in front which means basically the safety car is just bringing them around a few laps for the formation. Right exactly yeah for the formation lap they pit and a bunch of drivers or saying the you know visually. I can't see anything. That conditions are too bad. We need to wait this out and a lot of fans were getting angry because the rain didn't seem as bad from where all the fans were but the drivers were saying the way. The course is with the trees and the asphalt it makes for really poor visibility so it's basically just kicking up all of the water that is already sitting on the ground basically like when you're on the highway you're following a car didn't water at you. Yeah a lot of the guys are like. I literally can't see the guys brake lights in front of me never said to me. I can't see. I'd be like yeah. Go take the race should do so. The broadcasters are like you know we've got to listen to the guys that are saying hey we're out here driving at hundreds of miles an hour so anyway. They have three hours to get the race in the reasons to be done in three hours. And you're given x amount of time the race so that i don't know by the design of their schedule. They can't move to like monday like their schedule. I guess is really condensed postponement. Nascar had you can. They can just push it to the next day. Why their schedule as it's currently constructed the can't now there's people saying that needs change but that's how it is right now you race on sunday or it doesn't have three hours to get exactly now the day is going on. The rain is not stopping They tried twice to start the race. Where the it looked like. There was a lull in the rain. They tried to get everybody out there again and then at the rain picks up so eventually they ended up calling it. But here's where everybody got angry which rightfully so so with. I do not know the rules of now's car or any other type of driving but with f one. There's no you need to get x. Amount of laps in for it to be considered a race. So for now car from what i've seen online and people can definitely correct me if i'm wrong you need to have seventy five percent or fifty percent of the laps completed in order for it to count as a regulated race with f one. There's no rule of that so when they decided that points were going to be awarded for the top ten drivers although there were technically no official laps raced that got fans angry understandably so were like. Hey why can you name. Let me pull up exactly who case so max. Verstappen came in first. George russell set based off what third base offering qualified. They awarded they. Starting position was their final half were positions. Hey yup so fans were were mad saying they only went around the track. Technically three times in two of those laps were behind. The safety car and the third was for four formation. That the that doesn't count as even a fraction of the lapse that they actually do which means if we were using like nascar ruling. It wouldn't count as an official race so you shouldn't have awarded points for those top. Ten people top ten drivers because no no lapse racing raised. Yeah so now the Faa formula one race director. Michael massey basically described the whole incident the whole day as the most hectic day in my role not only as race director but his safety delegate so he basically is saying that. You shouldn't be both well. Maybe you should help. But basically he said that this is now the perfect opportunity for us to sit down and create. Those rules is for us to you. Know talk teams. Yeah that's how. I see it as he's basically saying we've never encountered something like this and we understand. Fans are upset. Drivers are upset but now we have the opportunity to sit down and create the rules. That nascar has come up with a okay with this happens again. What do we do. Basically is what happened. Is from what i saw and from what i understand. Yesterday was an entire show. No race was actually raced and points were awarded although drivers did not actually complete any laps and fans got mad but then f. one said hey. This is our opportunity to actually figure this out so that you know with this comes up again. We know what to do. And that's where we're at and thank you christina those comprehensive except you only left out one thing. I'd like to know what happened. What an and waving his origin. Let me know this is. This is a neo four sporran. Yeah oh sebastian. Your mouth on the on the outside scab okay or dover the inside neo sworn for the outside. Oh okay sebastian. Vital was like when they decided to do like the formation Talking to his team he's like. How is this weather any different than before. He's like they just want this for the money in tv. Basically calling him out lewis hamilton. Like every fan deserves their money back because he goes everybody else. Got their money's worth today. The fancy get their money back. Yeah i don't because i don't watch but sometimes from the outside f. one feels like real housewives where like afterwards each one of them is like i say this thing that furthers drama. And someone's like well. I think this of drives the netflix show. It's a whole bunch of divas. And i i like it. I'm not saying that. Yeah it's a nice big compliment. Is that like us is going to get me into it if it's like. What did this one bitch about this week. But as you're about to get to all of that is nice. It all pales in comparison to this headline. I saw was hamilton lewis. Hamilton had a traumatizing bathroom. Experience ahead of f one race at spa so lewis. Hamilton had gone to the bathroom ahead of the race and told his crew about his experience. I was getting ready and it was broadcast. I'm glad i went to toilet. The one i went to someone had dropped a crazy bomb in there. It was the worst thing ever the f. One driver then added it's going to haunt me for life was referring to a poop we can all make got safest because i mean maybe it would haunt me for life if i went into a bathroom and there was a bomb That would scare me. It's literally a bomb scare. That's those words. Go together frequently. But i guess what he's saying is somebody so my question is you're lewis hamilton. One of the jarvis. I'm guessing you're not just going to like a public restroom like no. I don't know you might. It's got to be. The only people should be used. The one that he's going to i'm guessing are like the mercedes people like someone on. That team dropped a bomb. What i'm saying. Actually if i may just argue in the opposite you'd might be surprised because and i know this isn't the same i know i'm not actually lewis hamilton but When we had tv show it was called always late aired on espn for a second. There they would. The live audience would line up in the hallway at the office. And i would if. I had to bathroom before the show. I would have to walk down the hallway past them. All say hi. 'cause it's would be very weird to not and then go into the bathroom that they were also in and go to the bathroom and then walk into the studio. It was the same bathroom in the building. So you don't maybe it's the same public you don't know maybe it was one of his and you also cause i don't know what bathroom he was using. Because i was watching the broadcast. No is The broadcasters the announcers or making jokes saying that this constant interference of are we racing are. We not is screwing with the drivers Time yeah exactly. Because they say you know. Obviously you don't want to eat something or drink a lot of liquid before you start racing because you don't want to have to go to the bathroom mid race strike. Get off the pot as they say exactly so as drivers are just kind of hanging out now for a couple of hours. Guys are getting hungry. Need we should see if anybody peed their pants. So is the story that i find interesting. What if lewis hamilton was like all. I got to get in those granola bar real quick. Because i don't know if we're gonna race all look now. I gotta go to the bathroom. I'm gonna go quickly to this. One might not be the nicest also an argument to be made that lewis hamilton. Dropped the bomb you on the smelted delta. I mean that is the oldest rule of the book. So he's like first of all he starts saying he's glad exactly though i wonder if he well he he would deny it. I bet if somebody alleged and that would mean he definitely supplied it but he starts by saying he's glad he went to the toilet and then he said the one i went to someone had dropped a crazy bomb there. It was the worst thing ever is like. Why are you glad then. A wonderful glad because you feel relieved and then you immediately were like. Oh they'll know it was me then so i should quickly pivot. Take a quick. Do they take left or right. Turns i should steer my steering wheel sharply to the left and say it was awful. And i'm never going to forget about it. Whoever went in there. I went in there before them that way it was. I mean how many times. I've been one an airplane. I've gone into a bathroom. Had it smell bad. And when i come out somebody was waiting to get in line and i have at least thought about saying out loud. It was like that. When i got there. It was the guy before me. I don't know how much you've been paying attention to people getting up and going to the bathroom but the guy before me was in there for a really long time and i just was in there for three for like three minutes and most of that was like washing my face. I'm really that wasn't me. It was the guy before me and most times. It was the guy before me most times. We have one more voicemail that we get to take eighty in the union. This is alex in cleveland. Ohio and i wanna know mainly just katie christina's answers. I lived in ohio. My entire life even lived in columbus. But i do not like ohio state. Talia those a raider. I already know. Crabs his answer so he doesn't need to talk but the other two you please discuss love. You mean by alex. I love you and i mean too. I wish that were a rule that worked on this podcast. That already knowing travis's opinion meant that he didn't get to say it because we just he can just sit out the whole podcast. I already knows opinion on everything and he still says it so. I bet he's still going to answer you even with this facial injury. He looks like he cannot wait to say what he thinks. I'll say this. i'm missing. Crucial crucial information. Alex do go to ohio state. And because if you didn't go to ohio state you're not a you don't have to if you born be born and raised in ohio and you went somewhere else and you could root for that team. But he doesn't bring that up. Which makes me think that he didn't go somewhere. That had a football program in that. Maybe he just isn't a college football. I'm a missing too much information. But i would say no. You're not a traitor. You don't have to be a victim of your own circumstance just because you were born in. Cleveland doesn't mean you also or whatever is that what he said. Born in cleveland lived in. Cleveland is currently in. Cleveland has been in columbus ohio. Yeah you don't you owe nothing to y- to the to the university that didn't teach you that you can. I don't think you're a trader at all now for michigan. That'd be a different story. I have a lot of questions. Because i myself born and raised in connecticut. Grew up going to almost every men and women's basketball game at the university of connecticut with my grandparents and university of connecticut. The university utica yukon. I just wanna the university. Actually utah is key thing And i ended up going to kentucky for school. And i did. I don't root for yukon. I root for kentucky. So i don't consider myself a traitor because i didn't go to the school. I might have grown up watching the games being a fan when i was younger but as i got older i pivoted and made my own decisions. So if you didn't go to the ohio state. I don't dude. You're a traitor. I don't also it's it's important to note alex. What are the reasons. You don't like it if you don't like it for. I don't know valid reasons than i would say good for you. You're free thinking individual. Who has decided they don't want to be associated with that program. Says at you to travis travis plug your ears. Everybody born in the state of ohio does not need to be an ohio state. Fan that you do have to route passionately for the paul brothers. Who are from there so that. That is the only caveat state. Don't have to like ohio state. But they do have to love both polls and you actually so i've heard is If you want to fight one of them you have to get tattooed. I love one of the paul brothers on right. I love paul. that should cover it. Yeah that'll do it. That'll actually knock out both of them. So you're find chavez. Did you wanna say anything or think. Alex little stunt here one thing. I'd like to know his host even accept you because if not lao okay. I don't think he's gonna stunned. No that's not a bad thing but like why are you hating from outside. The club can't even get in. I understand because let's say because he didn't get it. I get it. You had a major that there's a school that has it. That's it's a better school for that. So like if you were growing up and you were from columbus and you decide to root for another team. I need to know why you're rooting for that team. If you have a valid reason not a trader need to now. I think what he means that he'd like to know i want to know who he roots for. Yeah yeah and why. What school did you go to. I just am curious alex. I think we're just locking information. But in light of that with the information that we have. If we all had to make a call i would say no. Not a traitor christina. You vote no not a traitor and travis. You vote hung jury for me. Yeah we can't show you can't say hung jury for me that doesn't make that would make the whole jury hung. I'm just i. We would all have to got to have jury duty with you Right now right now. I will say not trader. Okay right now. So that's it decided. It has decided not a traitor until we hear more information private spoken. But you don't have to call back. We can just leave it at that. Alex run well you can. That's it for this week's for sedition. A sports shout to gatorade into a underpants. Whenever it's a shout to me on these it sounds like i'm saying like shadows to my underwear but it's the company shots. Yeah and china to the college football podcast. Very creatively named if travis hasn't made it clear yet college football's here. If this if that's your thing then check out the college football podcast. Paul finebaum friend of the show curb street. he's nice he's i'd say friend of the show i think he'd be okay with me saying that. David pollack never met him. Can't vouch and others will be hosting this year. So other just going through a roster mrs jeopardy they'll be posting episodes sunday through thursday this year Oh speaking of which i know. We're in the goodbye put. Update on jeopardy. Did you see that. They're hiring a minder that mike richards will have a mind. North korea like a person who's gonna like follow you around. He doesn't screw up the process of finding on your side. I mean he keeps his job and they put somebody in charge of him. It's like just put that person in the job and delete the richards. Let's just my osmose. Thanks for listening now and then again a second time on a difference training streaming service or to or you could always leave us a nice review wherever you're listening to this podcast but do it on applebrook. Because that's where travis reads them but he does love them like this one from j rod rocks at that so much like the kid screen name that i had a crush on in high school that it just put a little flutter through my my body. Do we remember the kid. You ain't got no. It's jay rock but remember when you would put the little special noises on when someone would come on.

Im me am them. Anyway that's how. I'm feeling right now. Don't delete it and make it say jay rock five ten by the way i'm jay. Jay rocks five ten. That says quote.

And then you think what is your favorite one wonder. Thank you love. You mean by nick love you mean it and i believe we've told you this many times before and travis you know these have to be really good questions in order to use nick for massachusetts because if i recall correctly for massachusetts has had like seven voicemails on this podcast also has a friend who eats hotdogs with peanut butter and mustard or something. Something gross. wasn't that nick from massachusetts wire saying any words. Is this the same. I don't mind. Member is definitely the same. Nick is the size of a pea in yours. Some hamming help. How many knicks from massachusetts are really calling into the pa mean. I'm sure there's more than one but there can't be that many. Yeah i'm just gonna assume this. Is nick from massachusetts and couldn't future. Just start changing up. The city's things googling while we're having it to try to find out if my favorite's actually are nope they're not they're not one hit wonders. I will say i will Give you one while year research and who let the dogs out. who who. Who didn't they got on a i. Don't think so. You know what dan and i did. The entire first versus today just extemporaneously. While sitting in the living room was called the bad touch bloodhound bloodhound. gang member. Me baby no. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah makes me sad and upset. And i can't deny that fact but that's not my favorite one hit wonder man anytime. There's a question that's like. What's your absolute favorite this thing. I'm like well. I don't wanna answer just in case i forgot one. That really is important to me. Yeah i have a. It doesn't have to be your favorite. What are some good ones that you write their favorite nicholson said he wants. No our favorite. I don't know if this is my say right off the bat. I don't know if this is my favorite. If i put more thought into it i might come up with another one however a few years ago somebody that i used to know i i think. Go with the goatee. That's how you that's a good one. That's abandon him. Yeah do you remember chicken soup with a soda inside. Who is that. That was lil mama. No that was cheated lip gloss law. Kim young be enshrined. I never knew the answer. So searching empty boxes jesu chicken noodle soup the soda and let it rain and clear about god. Please please. don't please own edit this out. Please leave this. Please let it rain incredible. Clear it out that watching him do it was. Oh my god. He's still he's still you always letting it rain. And he's also clearing out to see travis at a wedding dancing. I was thinking the same thing but then christina. But then i simultaneously thought like. I don't think i ever wanna see a wedding. Did you just put your hat on backwards. What's happening to to i don't know man. that'd be cool now. I love to go pull the shopping cart at a wedding The invisible double dutch. That's like a lot leading stuff from ten years ago. Lawnmower not so much Yeah going shopping. At the grocery store launching water. Werner's the sprinkler. All that what about stacy's mom is kind of wonder i think so. Was that fountains of wayne. Somebody else was from memory folks when i get them wrong. It's okay. I'm just trying to remember them. Teenage dirtbag by huitus all. That's a good one. That's a good yes you do. What's been in every movie ever. That reminds me along the same lines. my own worst enemy who sang that. Because i've never heard anything else. I don't know who's things but i actually proud me. Yeah yep yep. that's a good one. I heard i heard that a cover band saying over the weekend. And i heard it and i haven't heard this song in so long and i've never heard them come out with anything else. What about sex and candy by marcy playground. Remember that song no sounds familiar or was blind melon. A one hit wonder. No rain is are these too old for you guys. are you not. Are you not familiar with you. Can't say too old when i am. You're a if you don't know sex and candy than you weren't watching. Mtv in the night late night these early two thousands. It was on trl. I saw it probably. It definitely was cool. Achey brady heart. Billy ray cyrus. Oh god but it's a fine song but it's certainly not your favorite. Oh that on people go not even close to my favorite let to radicals that song about you. Get what you give. That was in everything back then. Radicals don't give up. Wasn't that new radicals. oh yeah. That's the dreamers disease o not song. What about the flag. What about flagpole sitta who things flagpoles. This is good. This is what people if you did. Prep for the podcast would dangers. That a one hit wonder because that song slaps the fact that if you don't know it that most likely was like one hit wonder if you're someone else coming up with it you you definitely know that song these are all over. Every song i've said is a popular song. I'm also really bad at especially when it comes to one hit wonders remembering the title and the artist. I just can't do. It's the same thing when it comes to remembering the actor actress in a specific movie. I just can't think of it. Have you thought of teenage dirtbag yet in recognized it. No i haven't i you you have to know i'm sure if we played it. You know it that. Sounds fucking slaps and then just last one for you to have context. You really. don't remember this song. yeah. I know that one that second candy just sometimes remembering song name with your song. The wait was natalie imbruglia. One hit wonder. No i feel like she's had a few bangers. Ooh might just be torn. I have no idea. Who's a j m. Well i'm gonna say teenage dirtbag i think. Mix coleman yeah thanks. Are you ever done that before. You know who's got need has got our number saved in their phone. It's nick from massachusetts. Kaley as it nick for massachusetts knows how to cut through the clutter if my personal test. Nicholas me and leaves a voicemail. Yeah that's it. He doesn't yeah he just leaves. Travis ah he sends him a text. And then travis has a voice actor reenacted voicemail voice that nick would have left because he doesn't have to leave voicemails because he's nick for massachusetts. But if you're just a regular listener this podcast you could also save it in your phone. Travis is phone number. Is i'll let me get it zero five six five seven five seven. Yeah he knows it to. It's now put it in your phone and the leave us a question. Hi hi. it's one day man. I have really thought it was thursday all day long. And it's not always happens to me. I think my brain just thinks that weeks or four days long and so it gets very confused in that middle day where it's like what's this one for. You were the one that actually was on time. Christina talim dude christina connect and we're like chatting and i'm like it's like ten after she's not even in the dock. Yeah i'm like senate tax what you're like We set five when i was a dance apartment in the midst of building a sofa and i was just like let's ta is five. We said we were going to do at five. Yeah in travis. And i hopped on at three in the afternoon. Then we're both. But i feel bad because you weren't texting me until like three fifteen or three eighteen and i was like man. They've been sitting there thinking i'm coming technically. They're wrong but even still. I still felt bad because usually we were just chatting it up having a great and really you were not coming. Yeah we had a great point. Moral of story i i was. I did the schedule right right win. That and putting together a couch today got things in one day to home down katie. And then i've got a big l. Because i can't go with dan this weekend i was supposed to. My mom got sick and she can't come watch. Myrtle i gotta stay here with my dog. So that fun exciting thing. I said i was going to do. I'm not doing it yet. But maybe soon maybe you still hanging out with myrtle. so that's the upside. Yeah i still get to be around me. Who i love. And his great and who when we both left today to go build dens couch and then i came back. She acted like she hadn't seen me like i had left for war. That's the best it is. It is christina. But at the same time i think my dog's going to have separation anxiety and one hundred percent think. Moral of the story is just like i don't. I'm not going to go to work anymore. I e tailing young. Yeah yeah. I'll just produce content of my home and my dog will never have to worry about the separation anxiety because we'll never be separate. Maybe i have a touch of separation anxiety as well. maybe. I don't like not being around my dog. Let's get you a cardboard cutout when you're not there she has. Oh god that's terrifying. She has a Eye infection and the vet gave us an appointment. Boy do i having this out loud. But the the last time they gave her a eyedrops and this time the doctor said it are they doctors. Yes right the vet said that. Yes there dr larry. Their animal daughter putting putting in the. I was a lot easier than drops because a lot of people miss with drops and look at. Dan and i was like i. Don't miss but okay. So i went to put in the and it's remarkably difficult. You have to pull her eyelid off her. I zero smith. Humans are used to do that because we play with our faces and we have opposable thumbs but a dog. I realized when. I did it to myrtle in like this. Must be the first time anyone's ever done this to you that you felt your eyelid separate from your eye. And guess what she reacted. Accordingly she did not like it. And i was trying to say like translucent lotion into her pocket. And she didn't like that and it was very hard to do and i think all ended up doing was smashing on the outside of awry. And now i don't know she's gonna get any better so it's been a tough day hasn't been that hard. That's just got frustrated. Because putting lotion i is. That doesn't sound send up for. I guess my mom used to do it. When i had conjuncture vitus but i'm a human who has at least even just a little bit of reason. I'm not a doctor and you can better. If you're administering medicine talk to myrtle you know a constant state of conversation with as much as i would love to believe that dogs can understand what we're saying. And although jim for long enough you start to believe it because they start reacting to things you say and you're like what's up. I knew you understood. Were smarter than say. I would like to believe that they understand everything you're saying but it's obviously very different than human who you're giving medicine to say. Okay you will be fine. Uh-huh yeah so. I didn't enjoy putting lotion into my dogs. I and Knock going away this weekend. And i built a couch and i feel like that's it. That's a productive day. It's not really maybe today but not like just is more speaks more about me and what i declared productive not oh i got the best meal i've had this is a literal highlight of my week has been got delivery from a place that i've never gotten before but i've heard about but i've never gotten delivers. It doesn't seem like one of those restaurants that can just bang up delivery. It seems like one of those places you go and it's all about atmosphere and it's old and it's cool and so but i was alone for dinner so i was like. Yeah whatever. Emma try this place and i ordered. It was a french bread pizza with pen. Chetta and i think pesto. But that wasn't even on there and then a deep fried so breaded encrusted poached egg. Some it was on the pieces. Yes eat wants amazing good. It was the first time. I've been into like a food. And you know when you're like. Oh this looks good. I hope. I think it's gonna taste like this and then you take a bite in. It tasted exactly how i wanted it to taste. It was a so good. I'm already thinking. I stood in my kitchen and ate it. I didn't even like get at Set myself up a plate. I didn't grab drink. I didn't sit down like that. Excites rules the so good. What on the menu made you say like. I'm getting that. Was there a photo next to it or was it just no picture. I actually order too much food because it's not possible. I didn't know what to expect. I also ordered a skillet cookie. That i haven't even eaten yet. 'cause i didn't have rule love cookie i am but it was delivered with ice cream. melted but i'm like. What are they going to do about that. They can't do anything ordering at school cookie. I love school cookie by. That's that's one of the things that you have to get there. They delivered it undercooked. Which i think was their way of being like you can pop in the oven. I think that's what most places would do. All it said there was no picture. It's a carbonara. Italian bread pizza pan. Chetta pekka reno and krispy poached egg and amazing. It was in credible and it showed up like in. It looked like somebody had made it in their kitchen and put tin foil around it and sent it to my house. It was in like a metal tray for you paying in. Yeah yeah it ruled and so shout out to antique barn bakery in hoboken. It was a delicious. We leave a five star yelp review for you. Yeah if you want to. But i don't think you've ever done that in your life. I think it would get flagged. They'd be like this is not somebody must have hacked. What is this five star five cyber up bar staff no. I've left surveys before. I you know what i'm a little offended by that are you. Where have you left. Because i know there was one restaurant near read that my dad and i only five serve us all the time back off. Okay what mr derived. I'm sorry what name name some of your other favorite places to leave five-star reviews and he could place. I go to if i i like it. I'll leave a review great. I'm sure that'll help boost their business. Not saying the name of it on this widely listened to them right. Now i'd cast so well okay Christina well today what's up. Today's been a day. I get to it. What christina can you adhere to the dock. At least three format the font christina wrote her little friendly banter notes in size seventy five font in the dunk. They do seem today has a day. I say okay. let's hear it. Nothing like super annoying has happened is just one of those days where i woke up sad. Everything that's happened to me today has just been like a like really so i have a whole bunch of laptop issue is i didn't have connection to my email for ninety five percent of the day So it's just a will. Yeah but it's also been a hassle vacation. People are trying to reach you all day via email and your boss is texting you like. Hey why where are you. And i'm like oh hey sorry on the phone with. It for six hours were super sucked. but the highlight of my day so in the midst of all of this. When i'm sad or don't feel like doing anything when i'm in a funk i ignore everybody and so i don't i don't tax people. I don't answer the phone at my mom will think i die because she didn't. I'm not answering anybody's text or anything so my grandparents called me this morning just to check in like they always do and i didn't answer them because i looked to the phone and was like i can't be fake happy right now and they are the cutest people and i don't want to explain that i don't feel good so i let it ring. They always leave a voicemail and the thing that cheered me up is the fact that the only people who leave me voice mail on my phone or my grandparents they leave it together because they always call me on speakerphone. And as a duo message Let me see if i can play it ring. You cleared out afterwards What do you mean travis. Shut up all my is trying to be. Yeah i all right. You like sat on it. You were so proud of yourself and it went right over my head all right. Let me see. Let me know if you could hear this show major. It takes exactly twelve seconds every time you know it's them. I only heard one. Because i know they're gonna do like hi. It's gramma hi. it's calling. He sits there and waits for a grammy. Gets rid of all the details. She's the one who talks and then sometimes he'll try at the nato love you but doesn't he doesn't do the talking. Grimy does the talking but it takes are exactly twelve seconds to call and she always says oh by the way. My boyfriend's name is mike. I don't know if i've ever said that. I thought she will always call doesn't ever Doesn't ever forget mike. Social always a high. Just calling to check on you and mike. I'm like you so precious. That's really cute so yeah it was. Don't understand that that a missed call handles that. And i think i appreciate it. I think it's sweet like my dad will be like hey k. Just say hi Just want to let you know. I called so. Give me a call back when you see this. Thanks dad i would have done that if you just called. And i didn't answer and i saw exactly. I'm not going to explain that to them. That like i guess. Leave you you call me. i see it. I call you back yet. Don't need to leave memorial smile I love leaving voicemails. The upside of it is if you ever had a day or something you know back in. Just play it and here the news because my mailbox is always full because i never deleted because my voice mailbox is literally full of poppy home. Poppy sell grammy. Grammy sell coupons. Same voicemail over and over yup exact same voicemail. What's the long like. How are they all look the same way. Oh yeah i mean. I'll just go down the list here. This one is the one that they left. This morning was twelve seconds. Yesterday was eleven seconds. Last last wednesday was twelve seconds Last tuesday seventeen seconds to say. I'd say maybe answer the phone christina. Yeah sounds like your your grandparents. Health millennials yeah screen. Phone calls a lot. What can i saw voicemails rule because if there if you're me and you hate i used to have a legitimate phobia about talking on phone and i'm still not very good at it. It's just calling to make a doctor's appointment. I have to play through how the conversation is going to go a million times in my head instead of just existing in the moment and delays when they ask question that throws you off guard. We're like a lot of receptionist. I don't know if that's now a bad term. But the people who received the phone calls and answer them at doctors offices a lot of times. It's it's their jobs. They do it all the time but they just don't realize that you're like i don't know what i'm doing in you know all these things and health insurance makes me anxious because i never really understand any of the words associated with it. It's just a whole mess. But whenever i used to have to make a phone call that i was like. Oh god i pray that i would get their voicemail so that i could then just be in control then i could be like. Here's the three things i wanted to tell you. Call me back and you can. But i already got the three things out some not mess it up but now i don't have to because i have well on there. But that's they don't bleep it out. They didn't pay for today. Knows such thing as a free lunch. Sorry bleep bleep. But not today. Dan when we first started dating was still ordering food by making a phone call what he would call order pizza. Even if the even if the restaurant is on one of the delivery services he'll still call he did not even half might on the right side like i go pick it up. Oh yeah. I guess when i go to framingham food more often but that's just because i assume that they don't have every restaurant. The game changers making reservations on an app and the game. Changers reservation bleep that app. That does the bleep bleep. I've no idea what the app is. Just sleep it. I and i don't remember the last time. I called a restaurant to place my order because everywhere around sucks because when they answer and if it's allow bar it's like most of the times they don't answer if it's cold or they can't really hear you and also at everywhere around. I am fortunate to live on a very busy road. With just a plethora of fast food chain and all sorts of stuff. So i i always get food. Delivered always get food delivered. I'm never like because. Even if i did go pick it up to me. I view it as it's a waste of my time because it's right down the road just have bring it to me trying to boost the economy helping out matters. Yeah give great steph travis. Would have you been getting up to in the last couple of days. I realized it doesn't take a whole lot for A reality show to get me hooked. Oh boy we got so. I was watching bachelor in paradise and they kept having previous for the ultimate surfer. So i the altar surfer so i press record and they had monday and tuesday episodes. It's this giant manmade pool that ax to they can always guaranteed waves. But there isn't a whole lot there with factual surfing. But there's drama because the people like all know each other because they're all like in the surfing circuits like the festival. Tell no there's a slight one dude spoiler alert. Don't what's the next thirty seconds if you're hooked basically got eliminated because he got caught in front of some girl drama. That one girl two sets girl. There's a group of girls that didn't like another girls girls So yeah so. He got caught in some woman trauma. And that's what got me. Hooked also drama. I don't really care about the surfing. Like give me more of that and so yeah. It's now the dvr says recorded worst elevator pitch for this show that there were girls and then actually girl drama. He didn't lady stuff. And i was like the surfing's bad and it's manmade the note. The surfing is really good. But it's like nobody watches reality show for like that. They matter no. I will watch project runway for the fashion. I don't watch bats. Bats bachelor to see someone is he. Love you watch for the love. I watch it for trainer simply be watching it for. I saw today the discovery plus or maybe just regular discovery. They're doing a show where they send somebody to space. It's like it's called. Who wants to be an astronaut. Or like america's top asked and i. It's one of those who wants to walk. It's a competition and then they're going to send the person to live for like eight days in the space station yet. no. I'm going to pass on that. And i saw and this is just i think i saw but i didn't check that they're going to film a movie in space like they wanna film. I guess like tom cruise movie. They wanted to do me early. Make armageddon space. Well travis. are you sitting down. That wasn't filmed in actual space. So i think the the novelty here of the tom cruise thing that again. I think i saw shirley the authentic google. Tom cruise space movie but I'm ca- how pissed you think clooney is that he did space movies and they didn't do it for real. Tom cruise gets to be the one as russia's a sean people roger. This is the new cold war. Russia is racing to beat. Tom cruise a nasa to be the first movie shot in space. All right the russian space agency roscosmos roscosmos at sounds like rock lobster. announced thursday that it had selected its crew to headline the film which will be called challenge. Okay all right so russia is trying to get. We're we're now competing to be the first person to film a fake moon. Landing on the moon. Isn't that ironic. You'll be the first be on the moon win. Award for that'll be the rock. Fasten fears fifteen. Yeah can you imagine is jeff as still shooting people up into space via airplane. That he says is like you know. Thirty seven him. I thought i was just for him. I thought it was like any billionaire. Who wants to get from like one country. The next in like a minute. Just you know pick billion dollars. Stay greenland it. it's good it's happening already no way. I don't know that's what i was asking. I sell this environment in a time where we're like. Oh owning a private jets irresponsible at this point. And he's like. Hey gimme a billion dollars. And i'll fly from the state to this. I'm just trying to get my food delivery to get like five minutes faster growth. What's different about amazon. Now where it feels like every product being sold is a deep fake of the product that. I'm looking for his on choice yet. Or if i'm looking for. Let's say bleep the name or who gives them the clorox bleach wipes they're just disinfecting wipes actually non bleach. That i'm used to having. And i'm looking for them. And i see all these different things that look just like them from afar but when you zoom in it's like not sold by clorox museum in this yoga different from this logo and like nobody is saying that this isn't cool. Nobody reputable dealer just. Yeah i just want somebody to sell me the thing that i want. And now they're like free. Delivery for prime members should be there by september twenty eighth. And i'm like that is. I thought prime the thing i was paying for was to get it in two days member when that's what it meant because i do but sure as i hope you enjoyed edging space groping shoot him. Honestly he on moscow's involved in this tom. And then there's what richard branson to last. I the last big news story i saw him in. That's admittedly not paying attention was owned an island or something. What's he doing busy number one thing when you type in his name. And you go to news Virgin orbit to go public virgin orbit.

One not gonna notice anything today. Saying the podcast. We're talk about what travis jeopardy k love that. Jr smith update okay. We haven't it'll be tech talk. I can we get away from it. I cannot continue to walk a tight tightrope of this post. I will get no you asked for. One must piece of information. If he was okay we will have that. You have a follow up. I have sources source seals. Wow look how happy he is. He has one. I know i pretty crazy the podcast all of that. Wow more than you was unnecessary. You don't know how many sources she has her grandma grandpa those two sources grammy and and now. I'm already knows they're in the cia. Today's podcast is brought to you by gatorade. So travis how do you want me to tell the people about gatorade as if you're dealing with the back seat driver like i am actually as if you are the backseat driver okay. Hey gatorade knows that. There's many pass to greatness so how you get there is totally up to you. And i'm not gonna tell you which way to go not going to be like acce- driver about it but yeah no i know you do and i do. I just wanted to say. Because i drive this way a lot that sometimes you gotta grind it out you know you gotta get up early and put in the work. Even when you're not feeling one hundred you can go that way. If you want to i was. I was here waiting for you. Okay I also assume that you know that. Sometimes it takes staying focused on a goal knowing where you wanna be an after poor everything into get there because a lot of people don't know that it's kind of like a locals locals only know that route. I'm trying to stay focused okay. You stay focused. Oftentimes you just need to dig deep and shows them guts. But that's just me. That's when i drive to be brave. Never let anything stand in the way of what you can accomplish but you know honestly sometimes early days where you just have to like get in the gym and some gains and elsewhere gets drunk. What's up. I'm trying to get there. Are you going to get by putting in all the reps and getting stronger each day. But that's the goal. We're we're trying to the goal. It's just we'd get there a lot quicker if you put in all the reps and you got stronger each day. It's fine whatever path. you take the greatness. Gatorade is there to help fuel. The journey because greatness. Star to jay graves. It was fine. It felt fine like you get on the ad rates trying to get into character college football. What is going on with the grown men in charge of college. So what is their deal. That's the anat at and ken. They all work it out in therapy please. so you have the alliance which is the ac sample the alliance. The no no no no. that's what they are calling. I actually think that we need to come with a better name for them because they have zero creativity but the acc big ten and pac twelve have come together for a collaborative approach basis. They won't say it. But when the sec acquire texas and ou they got scared and worried about what to do so they get this alliance going. Oh the foot. We need to slow down. Because already i have been have been confused. College football infrastructure confuses. The hell out of me because it feels like anyone can kind of do whatever they want sports about student athletes and the better of the university isn't up. I'll tell you right now. The only thing. I know for sure. Is that what you just said is not true and that the only people who ever say are like high ranking officials off the record in articles. They're always like. I don't know i think we should be paying the kids. It's kind of expletive. It's like you're not doing anything about it. But so when the big twelve lost. Oklahoma and texas to the sec. People were getting nervous. That the sec was going to be a super concentrate. Hauer and ironically situation. We used to refer to as the power five conferences. That really isn't going to probably exist much longer. started to get nervous about If all of the power is consolidating with the sec and ironically and espn then they needed to do something to become an equally powerful so that they don't all get sucked up into the sec. Which honestly who cares every school's always going to have football. So what i don't understand is why they don't just go okay. We are all in the sec. None of this matters anymore. It doesn't make any said to me. I understand conference being scared that something might happen because the big twelve now is in a bad position but the big twelve is not included in the alliance so well that's part of also the alliance. They came out and said the three commissioners actually spoke on it yesterday. There is not a contract of any kind between the three conferences. And they said this is built on. Trust if you need if you need a contract than it wasn't ever on trust now we gotta find that shown toward historically on trust has known to wild. It was wild. And i'll tell you what. I'll tell you exactly the people that don't say things like that. It's businessmen that are successful. There's no way you get to that point where you're just like no. We just trust each other. No you know that it's an a contract you have to put it in a contra lawyers spend four ever on those contracts. It doesn't make a bit of sense. Why am i logged out of twitter. This is something. I was prepared to So asked about the communications with not having a contract. Big twelve jim phillips. Who's the acc commissioner. It's about trust we've looked each other in the eye and made an agreement if a parentheses a signed contract is what it takes to get something Considerable done then. We've lost our way. And i know it's legit. I lay and they agreed with me. It's legit If you guys need a contract and you're you're just a bunch of liars. You must only do business with liars. Because if you did business with truth tellers you would need to write anything down. It's all about the is if you about teams jumping ship. And you're you're the goal is to stabilize college sports college football than you would get a contract this this because i bet you would say that if you wanted to build a house you should probably build a solid foundation. You can't live in a solid foundation. I need runes decorative roof elements are have time to build a foundation. And if you need one then quite frankly you've lost your way but what this comes down to is a couple things. One is these three conferences get together and create a quote unquote voting block. I don't know so that's quote unquote. I think you can just say voting block. Allegedly i don't know and then it's basically in any room where there's a vote happening. You would assume these an alliance survivor. Yes these will all vote together to protect their now shared interests or whatever they called it collaborative approach and then the other thing is. They're about they want. So if you're a big ten the ideas that you will play conference games and then you will play. One against the team will play against an sec team. In the pack twelve team acc teams notre dame counts by but these contracts ohio state for example has game scheduled already in the twenty thirties. And so. because that's just how called sports have always been the scheduled games five or ten years advance so theoretically this idea wouldn't happen until the twenty thirty s unless you're gonna unless you're going to buy out the teams that you're scheduled to play allowed to schedule them that far in advance. What did they might dad booking a family vacation. That's always been. I've always thought it's dumb because when you schedule a game you think it's going to be marquee at the time but then there's the things that happened between now and then that are going to impact. Yes this is exactly what i say to my dad. Every time that he's like so what do you think cancun in twenty twenty three. I'm like dad. I don't know maybe made ask me in twenty twenty. Two twenty three asked me the month before you need to go. what are you talking about. Why are you booking the so far. They haven't said it but it sounds like they're basically trying to block the sec from scheduling big non conference games because if those three are scheduling with each other. That doesn't leave room for this. You see the only other power five would be the big twelve but the has already been talking about expanding to ten conference games. So if you do that they don't really need you. It's a whole mess. And then you have the talk of college football playoff expansion and this is where goes into what you're talking about with. The spn is the tv rights in are they. You know they're going to hold off until the contract ends and this it's they won't they're trying to say oh it's about the students and this and that here's a quote. We need to make sure we have shared values. We keep appetite academics. I we keep integrity. Our honor and collaboration together. Kevin warren the awful commissioner of the big ten who is the worst ever new right. We'll roll allegedly. That was travis. He's new that's not. that's they're all new right. Acc big kevin. Commissioners kevin phillips. I needed confirmed. This came over from northwestern which is why i think it helps The big ten in the pack twelve could not do this deal together. They need the acc and having kevin phillips previously coming from the big ten helps and then you have the pac twelve new commissioner. Who came from mgm. So he has how he operates is more business money. I kind of mentality. And so he's kind of student. Athletes i sorry sorry. Sorry free education. It's all it's all about the kids. And i am as big on education and kids. He's been kind of the worse with this ally gave her. This is a pack. Twelve push that it was pac twelve. Who wanted this pac twelve. Who asked for this but you think pac twelve would want them to sign and put some ink constant pavements. It's the pac twelve. That has it's her. Tv contractors awful. They're the pac twelve network has been useless for. Why don't if the sec is getting as big as it is and if if they continue to expand outside of the two teams that just joined them. Why don't then everybody else form a conference and we only have to like what baseball does the american league in the national league. Why don't wire. They're not just to then if if there's all this other chaos and there's all these other conferences i can't figure it out. Why don't they all just joined together. And then it's the can rename the sec. And now there's too because you have in professional leagues. You have thirty two teams with sec adding texas and oklahoma. You sixteen right there. The the idea that many people put out there is go to four super-conferences. Yeah because so that okay instead of two than just yeah floor. All different regions of all four regions of the country dead people getting bended the mountain west. The mac. that's one right. That's the name so their goal goal would be. They'll want playoff expansion. Everybody should actually want playoff expansion as much as like the pac twelve might be offended. By how great sankey and bessie see in texas home. Kind of made this happen and then are pushing for expansion. Because it helped se playoff expansion will also help the pac twelve and these other conferences. So yes while. it's as he sees. Maybe a. they're the one pushing for it. The most it still is better for you than the current playoff format which is a whole thing. Just seems like a real mess. I'm chain of people trying to grab power. It's all because other conferences. I think got mad that that she see either wear texas and oklahoma or they call them. Here's the deal. If texas oklahoma called the pac twelve the acc or the big ten. Those three conferences would have taken those schools to you. Can't map sec for doing this. No i don't get any. It doesn't mean listening. And then the other thing is the the big ten is you when they joined the acc in the pac. Twelve is the whole academics and our our schools care about back. I'm excited i think it's like a issue which is like the collegian association of the academic side so they try to use that as like the front while the money did they realize how transparent it is. That's the part. I don't get about college. Football's you're just like this all seems like they're lying to me. This all feels like ally. What's the real truth like twitter. Twitter joined together and everyone's like dis- mocking this press conference. This is cool the the big takeaway is nothing's different as of today about change. Nothing and thing. Everybody's just now we're going to be friends with these people if that's okay with you again at survivor okay. We'll speaking of friendships and enemies alliances made and broken everson. Griffen play for the vikings for ten years. And then he left went to the cow. He went somewhere between the cash. Joins the giants. Thank you In his he's now back with the white house. You're right you went to the cowboys and then traded to detroit detroit. That's it He he during his time away for minnesota and like i said he's back now tweeted some things and i wouldn't even say they're necessarily controversial but he tweeted a kirk cousins asks. Thank you at the vikings. I should mentioned biking not the official twitter. What he didn't do period at viking. So it's like everybody's got to see it true. I think they changed that. I think i heard that they had changed. I thought they went back to though. Maybe they did at vikings kirk cousins is ass. Thank you Goes on like ask zimmer. If he wanted kirk they'll tell you the truth who wanted kirk cousins question mark question. Mark was lots of question marks. Which maybe he's doing. What most people on the internet claim to be doing which is just asking. The question can't get mad and just asking a bunch of questions so now like i said back with the vikings which means he's going to have to face the ass and and he said in a press conference that he hadn't spoken to him yet but that he was gonna and i. My palms are sweating for him. Oh yeah but i think in that situation. The only thing you can do is come with receipts. I think if you're ever in griffin you have to be like. Hey dude my bad but was up with your monday night. Football record or like. Hey but what was up with that one game. Completion percentage was like thirty five. What was up with that. I mean you going to defend that it wouldn't you objectively say that's ass so was i wrong but i'm sorry i said it. I really am sorry. I said it and i hope you can forget that. I said it is kinda michael. I'm kind of hoping that you'll forget. I said that Not that i think it because they might still. But i'm not gonna i promise i won't say it again we're everson and i were kirk. I'd forgive you. Thank you so much thank you. Well also made you a friendship bracelet hoping that this would be the outcome. I might not wear it but thank you. Oh kirk i have a question for you. If training camp started on july twenty fifth. And you haven't received any sort of apology or anything and it's august twentieth now. How do you feel Managing ssd blocked on twitter when fox sports one hired him and i was like. Hey can you tell that guy. He's got unblock me and have a conversation with me about it and they didn't and i was like yeah. Who did i think i was but it i so i can understand but it's also just like he's it's if you're kirk i'd reach out i'd be like hey dude it's ass i was just wondering If you wanted to up now that you're back so so i have cousins isn't gonna get vaccinated. May kirk can bring that plastic plexiglas city builds himself for his qb meetings. I can't wait for the first like either bad game. Her cousin great game. I don't i can't he can't be mediocre. The for i needed to be really great or really bad so at either proves or disproves the tweet how about this the first bad game that everson griffin has do you think kirk cousins tweets that everson griffen his ass. I sure hope so. Just tweet and emoji look. You're entitled to your opinions but when somebody calls you on him don't lie. Don't grovel just be like. Hey my bad. I just really thought that you had a bad game. Did i have to rub it in absolutely not. But you're then you were sacked five times spring. The receipts come with stats. If there's one thing. Katie nolan knows. Get those stats right and people will really respect you. Numbers number numbers or my whole numbers our favorite. Jr smith news. Ncwa cleared him to play golf. He almost said hockey and actually would be weigh in on so he's been cleared. You've gotta fun actually okay. So at north carolina a and t which is an hp correct it is they have cleared him to play golf which means that he can. He can doesn't have to still also auditioned again Doesn't you still have to try out or is he done that already. But teams got one important. Okay but i don't know that. That's i've got an issue. He already enroll in a degree in liberal studies and begun classes but now he'll be able to play college sports for the first time of his life he'd been committed to play college basketball north carolina under roy williams seventeen years ago but opted to go directly to the nba instead where he was elected. Eighteenth overall blah blah blah. I have an issue. And i have an offer. Which one do you wanna hear. You offer his neither. The issue is there's players that are waiting for them to aa to let them know if they're cleared to play college football and this week zero starts week and when they actually have games most of the team's next week and they still don't know if they're cleared to play and two double eight. You have time to figure out. Jared smith can play golf a sport that doesn't need and the kids that are waiting approval. They can play up to the plate and clearly as other players look to move. It was still hasn't gotten their hiatus linebacker that is yet to be cleared to play. So it's just an ohio state university just him. There's other people. Do you want my offer now. No but i bet you're going to give it to me listening unsolicited so lebron james also never went to high school. Lebron james college is i'd like to offer him to go play culture award higher state. What i'm sorry. Walk me through. Explain to me what's happening here. What brian james like jerry. Smith skipped college I'll have that in common. They have a couple of other things not income. Lebron james was an all state receiver his junior high school. Okay have a massive hold on a second finish. He is now in the nba so he has not so he could return and go play sport like they're busy. Travis yeah but still lays actively playing on sport. What are you sure retire okay. Here's my water brewing. Why do you do this. What is happening. You're more couple podcasts. Ago when you listen to things to say that of this very story that you were mad because they were gonna let jr smith play only and it was. It was this in particular where he was. I know there was only angry because it was compare. he could get it to dunk on tibo. It didn't make any sense. He wasn't genuinely mad. Travis is never genuinely felt an emotion on this podcast so with that being said. Are you just going to allow. Lebron james to walk onto this is this is absurd. Lebron james has a job. Legit lebron james has expressed no interest in going back to school or playing football it before and we skip the story for that katy. Do you want to feel better about yourself. I don't think you have the power. I don't think you can give that. We were worried about the fernando tat cheese. We'll be talk video okay. All right well. I'm starting i'm all right. I feel a little better. She allegedly been told by my source at everybody. Involved is cool with the. Oh my god. You're good it's still doesn't change. It doesn't change the rules of the podcast.

Gatt q. u. ip dot com slash. Nolan quip the good habits company back to you. So speaking of sexy. What's up so there is a poll. Who was there well worth the fernanda t. Some people were calling him sexy. Not us not would never culture mascots. There was a poll may of ranked the best worst and one of the categories for mascots sexiest up so gritty college. Sorry also allegedly also. I'm assuming you mean in their suits not outside of them and there's also one unsexy but so the sexiest Mascot was a willie. The wildcat from north wester. Wait this america's favorite college mascot there was favorite sexiest. Okay but sexiest willie the wildcat or was best cat Wait did he get best and he got best in sexiest. Excuse you can't be the best and the sexiest wow. I didn't realize that in sex in the city which is like nobody marries the best of their life. you can't be best and sexiest. That's not how that is supposed to work. Those are what's the point of having two different categories. That's like giving miss congeniality. The person who wanted all. I want my sexiest mascot. And i want it to be separate and i also want to know if the people running this whole are aware of or in any way familiar with the furry community and if those were invited to participate or if that was too i just wanted to those who being asked who told her the sexiest mask. Here's the better one. Which mascots do men and women find sexist men found mr commodore vanderbilt university's mascot where women said the blue devil from duke is the sexiest syria and anina esi. We are saying but who he's got a big head who is hamadeh. Were we need more female mascots. That's what i'm learning the sexiest college mascots in america. Willie the wildcat. Which i think they must have just had he must have had a voting block a quote unquote voting block. He must have had a lot of wildcats friends. That logged into this and voted. Because he's just he just is wearing jersey. The number two is army mule from the united states military academy. And i'll bet you that's because he's naked. I'll tell you right now. Looking at one picture of him and it sure looks like that. Meal doesn't learning close. And so i think he was robbed. Not being voted sexiest. He's clearly putting in the work in the effort and he's showing up committed to his cause the give them some cat making a funny face and then mr commodore is the third sexiest and then shasta from university of houston. I assume that the woman. I don't know there's two then there's the bird from the united states air force academy thought a sexy bird by any stretch of the imagination. I've seen Sexy bird temple is sexier than the bird in which ways travis specifically now. These aren't athletes. So we're allowed to do this. I feel like it's wings. Just like they. They're out further. Just you know john. Press husky completely got voted as number six on sexiest because of the name. Jonathan is these clearly voted on by a bunch of people who came of age when jonathan taylor. Thomas was was hot jonathan. The husky is not hot at all. He looks like he might be the kind of mascot. You introduced to your parents but that's very different again. A completely different category than sexy sammy the spartan that's a cartoon man. Yeah but so is. Shut out san jose state university though that's dance franchising. Ncwa college football but so so is scarlet knight and blue devil. They're both cartoons kind of sexy He's got disney prince vibes blue devils bad boy image aware in that case. Though unlike. what's your deal and how come you're blue devil. You're not blue means arms blue shirt so any person wearing a blue shirt. He's got a believable. I ask the sexiest thing is is a bs. Because i'm pretty sure so on the unsexy side number. Four is cocky. I'm sorry on sexiest mascots in america. Number four cocky from the university of south carolina. Okay so game cock ski from university of california. That's the ugliest best in my life. It looks like a teddy bear that you buy at a discount. Oh my god. It's yellow and got stuck out in the rain to. Oh my god that is so funny. What's glaze blaze could be sexy. The university of alabama birmingham alligator crise. Nothing wrong with that. i honestly think number three champ. I think he is a cutie. Lucy blaze is kind of like a wild card of the group where you're like some people find that sexy yet but you're unsure like you just can't trust them yeah. I think that's why big blue came in from old dominion came in fifth for at least sexy because It people really aren't into the monarchy right now and usually wearing or a bear with a crown. We can't crowd we don't live. They blew his on. Prince william and mary insider shorto. Yes yes yes. Were you having these conversations with. Were you silent or were you silenced. me doing oprah but mascots can't talk so he was he was silent was he silenced. I think it was silence. I think he was actually made side. You should take a little crown. Deal did methodology. The study was conducted online with a total of guests. How many participants fifteen hundred right beget one thousand. Two hundred sixty six. It was fifty five point. Four percent male forty three point six percent female and one percent non binary ranging an age from eighteen to seventy nine eighty five percent heterosexual. Okay so that's This is geographically using four regions defined by the us census bureau which are the south west. The midwest in the northeast survey participation was heavily weighted in the south. Four hundred seventy four and then basically like to seventyish for both the other. Okay so this was A thing that somebody put time into and for that thanks. I guess worst. College mascot in america is pistol. pete from oklahoma state. University and number two is purdue. Pete we sure do. We don't like pete's university of nevada. Las vegas is sorry. Nevada is hey rib. I think he is face rules. But your name having an exclamation point in it. What are you panic at the disco. You can't be hey read because then if somebody wanted to say hey you. They'd say hey. Hey rub and that's the stanford tree quite literally. Looks like a child's are play chanticleer. Awesome shanta clear sean sean. I think the chant declare is great but yes article. Remember one the nittany lion. This picture is not doing any fighters. Oh my god he looks like it's like you know like that You know that thing where it's like you ask your boyfriend like wet smile. Like that's her picture like. What's the picture you show all of your friends. And i hope to god. No one's shows the nittany nittany lion life. It's a really ugly picture. I feel billy. The warrior from the university of hawaii is just a person. Yeah i feel like he's he has like an unfair disadvantage because he's just a guy in some body. Pain is the demon deacons from wake forest. Looks like mr pena on a motorcycle. yeah he does. Notre dame came in as fourth with the most offensive mascot toe. And they're back on it though. We had a most offensive category. It's in there somewhere. I'm trying to find a i. Don't see it okay. So tell me more about. The cause wasn't notre dame's mascot. Weren't they an irish institution. Yes aren't they. The leprechaun will not saying didn't wasn't it made by irish people with irish heritage. They said it's worth noting. There are no comparison between notre dame's nickname and mascot and the indian and aware names mascots used by other institutions such as. Nfl team formerly known as the redskins. None of these institutions were founded are named native americans who sought to highlight. Stop you for one second. Don't put the word in your statement if you date. It's that easy. The former name of the washington football team. It's very we said it. And then they say it and it's like what's the okay but anyway. None of these institutions were founded or named by native americans who sought to highlight their heritage by using names and symbols associated with people are symbols standards. Celebratory representations of genuine irish heritage at notre dame heritage we regard with respect loyalty and affection. I'll just plead ignorance. I don't know a lot about notre dame. I will say the only thing i know about. Notre dame is the fact that my boyfriend's family all one hundred percent irish They are notre dame fans and they'd have a he has said to me. He has absolutely no problem with this. He's like i'm not a notre dame reveals a rich and respectful connection to ireland and the irish people that is so ingrained that over time the university chose to honor that history with the iconic nickname four of the six religious just as four of the six religious. That can't they must be missing a noun for of the six religious who founded notre dame on november twenty six eighteen forty two with french priest. Edward sorin were irish. Okay so number. One for two states baske- osceola and renegade san diego state Aztec warrior. Hawaii comes at number three the notre dame and epistle pete's number five. I don't why because he's packing. Okay i don't know that there's a i don't know that there's value in asking people to rank the most offensive mascot feels like i don't know on the same poll that you're asking sexiest sexiest. Doing what is this but okay. i think. That's i hear that. I hear you but congratulated the will Wildcat yeah for a big win or can we talk about jeopardy. We need and so. I was reading an article in it was either new york or the new yorker. I know that's a distinction that most smart cultured people can make. But i know that i signed up for one and thought i had signed up for the other announced. Signed up for both so. I had to read this article about how this has been completely botched and it seems like in this being the replacement host replacement for alex. Trebek's rest in the most piece as the host of jeopardy. It seems like it really did happen the way that we all laughed thinking it happened. That the guy who was in charge of finding the next host picked himself. We've found out from that ringer article that this guy who was in charge of the search and picked himself was in charge of the price is right and let's make a deal for a little bit and during that time was the subject of some lawsuits that ended up being settled about discrimination. There was a story about a woman who was a model on prices right They had laid off a bunch of models and then after that the woman went to them and said that she was pregnant and mike richards Said something along the lines of Allow who wouldn't right. After i laid off five people sort of suggesting that had she come to him and said that she was pregnant before that he would have later off for being pregnant and a whole bunch of things like that along with he had a podcast. Which i now know was called the random podcast which is alone enough to make me go. Don't host jeopardy and it's not just ram dom it's r. a. n. d. u. mb. The ran dumb podcast. And so on that podcast. He had some. Just you know not untypical. I guess but very unrefined views on women and their roles in society and the things. They should be expected to bring to the table to make mike richards. Happy basically saying that one piece bathing suits make people look frumpy and fat and ugly. He's just seems like a guy who has opinions. It shouldn't be set on television. And there's a lot of people like that in the world but most of them don't get put in charge of finding the host of a beloved television show and most of them don't then give the job to themselves. There is an interesting piece of information about how he how there was a a a a step taken in the midst of all this that should have indicated that we were headed in this direction. Which was after alex. Trebek's died and they were in the process of you know figuring out the moving pieces of who was going to take over. Mike richards went on camera and gave the tribute to alex to announce that he had passed away and to say that they were gonna keep the show going. He went on camera. Ended that instead of somebody going and giving the tribute. Like maybe i don't know ken jennings. I'm not even saying it should have been him but this guy we had never heard of who had only been the executive producer of jeopardy for a couple months warmer executive producer. They asked him to come back wherever yeah he left but apparently was like was say apparently was like he was the one that was had a list of names of like he was like. Yeah this alex had been sick. People knew he was going to be at some point either leaving because he needed to take care of his health or unfortunately passing away and they were. They had kind of started the search early in the sense that they didn't want it to happen in them to be caught. You know with their pants down for lack of a better phrase and so they had prepared for this moment and then Mike richards became the ep. Mike richards gave the tribute. Mike richards ran this search with all these auditions mike. Richards was in charge of who Which tapes were sent to focus groups so that they throughout the whole search jeopardy sony. Mike richards they were all saying that they wanted to take data into consideration. That they weren't just gonna bring out all these people in audition and be like he seems good or she seems good. They wanted to use the data but then mike richards was the one who sent who chose which videos to send to a focus group so he could easily have picked the worst of any hosts gig. I don't know or he could have picked his own best. They also one of the hosts. I think it was Lavar burton was like his stuff program. He was counter programmed to the olympics. Burton to do it. They put him on during the olympics only gave him one week when they gave everybody else two weeks. The whole thing sounds top to bottom like it's been a mess. So he was removed right. The last time we talked about this was removed as the executive producer. We said that they thought he was going to be and now today. The news has come out. He is still he will be returning as the executive producer. Lost we talked. He was office hosts. They were reviewing his role as the ep and sense than he's still there and sony's top tv executive. He has signaled that he expected the crew to move forward from last week's uproar. Excuse me sir. The question that i have is explaining what what are this. Guy's skills listed. What is it. He brings to the table that no one else could bring to the table. What is this loyalty to. This person is why they're like. Hey remember that thing. Everybody was talking about last week. Let's just move on but it's like no no wait a minute. What he decided to put himself in the spotlight. We uncovered a bunch of crap about him. And now we're like owning move on. We'll know we know about it now. Let's talk about it this so there's a the the line in the new york. I think it was in new york uric magazine that made me send it to you guys and say we need to talk about it because it's not my bed. Yeah but that's from new york. Mass isn't it There is no pleasure. Being derived from watching alex trebek's legacy trashed in real time by the sleaziest host replacement process since jay leno conspired with nbc. To screw over conan o'brien instead the industry veterans. I talked to this. Is the off the author of this article. Who i will tell you that is in a second last week. Were objectively sad about the whole mess and even angry quote jeopardy is an american institution. One told me for them to sully its mark on society with this sort of embarrassment to put it through this and tarnish its reputation. It's a crime. And i was like yeah. That is exactly. I'm very frustrated. This entire search. The article goes one of the articles. I read today went so far as to say that like it's not fair. That hosts like aaron rodgers. Put so much work into trying to and talked about how much it would matter to them. And as i was reading. That article is like yeah well not. I don't agree with all of it. I don't agree. Do think that it just seems wild to me that this guy was this brazen that he was going to give the gig to myself. If that's cool and everybody was like no it's actually not It's actually not cool. And he did it anyway. The things that he's done is bad enough to remove him as host then. I'm sorry things done from an from behind the cameras roll so it's not like all right behind the camera in in this weird reality people could argue that you could argue that the things he did wrong as a i guess you couldn't because he did it as the host of a podcast. The things he did wrong he did as a producer he got a host role. People found out about the things. He did wrong as a producer and he got fired from the host roll and gets to keep being producer. Doesn't make logical sense to me because it's putting him back in the position that he had weird power that made people uncomfortable in certain situations and it in this article. I believe the former ep. Either confirmed this idea. Be said lisa bronfman rockies schmidt which should be promoted to co-executive executive producers quote. They have been with the show for over two decades each and fully understand what the show has become so clearly. You have two people there that are more than qualified. And don't i'm i'm assuming could be wrong lease and rocky. Don't have you know things in their past. The et. michael richards has question. When did mike richards say or do the things that he did not team. I wasn't fourteen. He said it yeah. I know it's not like oh will win. Was it i. I know that's not saying that. He regrets the way he talks and that it was supposed to be laid back but he had to female co hosts in ways that he like you ask them to show him nudes that she had taken on her phone and she was uh go and it was just he just seems it's a producer who has always wanted to be on camera. It was like water cooler. Talk is how they described it that it was just a known thing that this behind. The camera guy clearly had aspirations of one day being on camera because he had been on camera but on lesser known shows and he just had always wanted to be a host and look at somebody who works in a lie or used to at least work in television. I've met producers where you're like. Oh i under this person wants to be on camera. it's just a different role and it's a different mindset and it leads them to take different courses of action that that a a sole producer who was happy being a producer and wanted to be the best possible producer wouldn't've have gone those directions. I just don't understand why this guy would want to continue also as the executive producer of jeopardy. It seems strange to me. I'm guessing there's i mean we all know the secret. Now we all know you on host. So what go hosts then. But if he can't host it he doesn't want to give up power. That's not how it works sir. No puts you can't do that. I'm not disagreeing with your boat. You said why he would still want to produce. I'm arguing with you if your hand because it's cathartic so but for him it's like okay i can't host but i i was still a good producer so i'm going to continue producer. Says do says everything that had gone up. Also said on his random podcast that he He doesn't know trivia. He had ken jennings on as a guest in he was like i really don't have a mind for trivia. i suck at all trivia. i'm so dumb at trivia. Oh so let's have you host famously. The most famous trivia show do so on this question. Do you need to know trivia trivia show and you could say the guy who hosted before alex back i apologize. I'm forgetting his name. He was not known as some super smart dude but alex part of his charm was that you felt like he could play and be fine. Upmarket the prices of very smart yet doesn't put that's every show is different and the one of the charms of alex. I'm not saying it's a requisite for doing this job but it is i i. I'm searching this guy. I'm doing a full body scan to figure out what his thing that he brings to the table. That makes him unique and in his auditions for other reality shows. I believe it was the former producer of jeopardy or somebody who saw his old auditions and they were like. Yeah he was fine but he really didn't bring any unique charm. He seemed like a young college kid doing a convincing impersonation of a game show host. And it's like that's exactly. You can't have that. Alex was alex. Alex was charming in his in his ways he had his. He was an authority figure. But it was also always said. The show wasn't about him he was just the host. The show was about contestants and you believed him. His delivery was just very like not upper down but it was the way that it yeah and it was just like so when he said something like even was funny like he didn't break character even that's not saying he was in character like he always hold together and that's his thing and i will get like moments where you could. My favorite thing about alex is there were moments where you could see sneaking through his disdain for somebody his annoyance annoyance with somebody like you. There were these moments where you're like. Ooh alex doesn't like this contestant as much as he wishes that he did or like. Oh alex loves this contestant and thinks he's sweet little moments and and and mike richards is is gonna give us that so. Who's going to oversee a search now. Because the ep while i don't think the final say that should be often the search and he can't be involved at now know what i'm saying is isn't the article that katie sent us earlier. Didn't it say in there. They're going to have somebody else. Overseeing him said i think so so so he now is under like watch in his position conducting the auditions. He was the person who who would talk to the guest host. And tell them what they were supposed to do and walk them through their audition and one of the articles alleged. A lot of those the not contestants. The people auditioning didn't even know that the guy they were talking to was their competition. They didn't even he wasn't supposed to be in the running and then he inserted himself into it but it was. He was weirdly involved on both sides of it and didn't disclose that in the ways that he should. I think the search for the new host is just all sorts of messy. And i obviously don't agree with it. I think what's unfortunate is. And i don't even know if unfortunate is the right word but alex was such an incredible host that i think that it's it's just making this whole you know replacement of him that much harder to watch how it's all unfolding. Because he's so irreplaceable. That it's like this is just such a mess. And i that even be hard but they found and now is even harder typically. I don't necessarily agree with cancel culture that there is a way where people were not opening this box of worms at the end of this podcast. I'm just. I'm just saying very quickly that there are certain situations. Certain people can apologize and grow from mistakes. But i don't see that here. Because i think he's very much dislike. Oh sorry let me. Keep my job christina. Maybe you didn't see the party that said he has to go to sensitivity training now so one is training. He's saying in this situation yet in this situation. He's like please. Just let me keep my job. I'm sorry i'm reading more and i had. I don't know if you saw the stunned look. It was one of the things that he had asked for. You're talking about photos. A quote booby picks. He asked one of the females and so now Sony has tapped veteran business legal affairs executive at the studio suzanne praet To take a more of an active presence on the creative direction and strategy and so. She's going to oversee mr richards. Like if you have to be somebody to oversee you if you need a babysitter then maybe you shouldn't be babysitting. This isn't college where you relate to practice so they send a j over to your dorm to make sure you're awake and going to show up to practice now it seems like it is for some people so it's disappointing. And it's a bummer. But it was really cathartic for me to see somebody get about jeopardy so that i could be like okay so i can be this mad because i'm very mad. Well that's the thing. Is i in college. Every soft and we'd be hanging out and drink and watch jeopardy but i can't tell you the last time i watch jeopardy but i've read that entire article night text you afterwards. I need a drink. Yeah it is a a mess. It's just a mass but a lot of good reporting Oh yeah that's right. I was gonna say the name of the person who wrote the article and it was joseph at dally. Unjustified alien was phenomenal article. Yeah i just liked it because i had so much passionate and i was like i could. This is good of catharsis speaking of catharsis getting things out of you. A hotdog we can. You want skipped us into smell because this is important so study claims that eating one hotdog reduces your life by thirty six minutes. Researchers at the university of michigan school of public health department of environmental health sciences. Say that eating. Just one hot dog shapes thirty six minutes off of a person's life researchers determined that consuming one eighty five gram serving of chicken wings odors more shaved off three point three minutes of life. What is this. What hold on this. Sorry hold on The third period largely due to the detrimental effect of processed meat no-no the however however consuming peanut butter and jelly sandwich increased person's life by thirty three minutes such as i assume that's supposed to say other foods such as salted peanuts. Baked salmon and rice with beans also saw gains between ten and fifteen minutes. If you are oh yeah the little. I added this record. This last one was made doing research. Numbers never lie in. Just the nathan's hot dog eating contest alone. Joey chestnut has had one thousand five hotdogs so he's lost twenty five as if you're chestnut at all 'cause if you're keeping balance of numb of minutes gained and lost in your life i think more power to you. I feel like thirty. Six minutes is exactly how much i've always felt like. I'm gonna lose when. I eat one hot dog and therefore this news didn't shocker. Upset me it was more like. Yeah i deserve that. When i ate that hot dog. I knew exactly what i was doing. If you had told me at shaved like a week off my life. I'd be like damn hot dogs for me but thirty six minutes. Think about the last thirty six minutes of your life you do without though but if you have to jays yeah then you get to go back to living normal. So here's what you should take away from it every time because numbers never lie time. You eat a hot dog immediately. Eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And you've only lost three minutes thrown. Throw him have some salted peanuts on the side. And you're not having a hotdog with peanut butter and mustard like nick from massachusetts friend is actually just mixing together. Peanut butter and jillian hotdog. Maybe it's actually brilliant because it's it makes it's plus minus zero on on your life minutes. Do you think wings. One eighty five grams serving of chicken wings. I wish we could figure out how to serve chicken wings and you re universally referred to them as something because eighty five grams. What's that is that a pass out. How many wings is that is that a wing is that. I have no idea what that means. Potato grounded as of your life. Also that's an all beef hot dog. Oh i don't think. I'm eating an all beef. Hot dog are am i. I don't know. I always thought they were just kicking action of stuff for the way to go bacon. Yeah i guess kosher. Yeah okay. I guess it is. I honestly park frank. That's all beef. Yeah well guess there's probably different. I mean how dogs are gross folks delicious. But they're gross. Okay okay that's fair. that's loney sandwiches. Disgusting get baloney and shoes sandwiches live. But they're gross. they're delicious comes from his gross. It's delicious it's a new this. We don't need to know what you don't need those thirty six minutes. You really do i. Would i mean if you told me a chick. Just one. Chicken ring takes thirty six minutes off your life. I'd still eat chicken wings. I will never stop eating chicken wings. Chicken wings are one of the best minutes at some point. If you've got kids irresponsible to eat another chicken wing. I think this this is just going to. I don't mean to be the person who disbelieves science in a year like this in this current climate. But this sounds like a whole bunch of bs to me. This just sounds like. I'm dying very soon so or you're not eating enough. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches writes hotdogs. People love your fifteen minutes tear. Let how do they possibly. That's what i want to get. One hundred people did you. How do you know. I can't even somebody pay me to eat hot dog what job. I'll be the study. Pay me to eat like. I don't know nine hotdogs and drink nine. then they'll see when i die all right. I think we have time for one more voicemail but before we do that. Today's podcast appropriately.

mean this guy's fault for our freedom and we'll get into all that stuff but ronnie first i'm gonna ask you a question i would have to believe you've probably been asked countless times what in sam hill possesses you just sit down at a table show hotdogs in water and then shoved them in your face at the most rapid pace you could possibly muster how does one become motivated to do this well what i what i tell everybody is i i'm just a competitive parts so if you if you have be a over forever gamer pickup basketball and the guy you know diving die before the ball and things like that so there's nothing else in the world that i'm the eighteenth best that if i was the eighteenth best baker you know i'd be out there baking cupcakes every weekend this is one you know this is what i got i wish out the eighteenth best quarterback in the world you know i wish is the eighteenth best point guard in the world but this is what i got and i like competing at the highest level and a that's pretty much what drives me what makes you eighteen how is that decided it's kind of like the college football rankings like who really knows what goes on behind that right you know three people three of four people go into a room and they come out and they they they update the rankings though i just moved up twenty fifth eighteenth this past week so i think i read that your first like you before you were deployed in what the two thousand twelve maybe to afghanistan something like that yeah did as well afghanistan right so you decide all right i'm gonna i'm gonna take this moment and i'm gonna get my hankering for competitive eating handled how did that go down what was it like the very first time you sit down at a table in the goal is out eat everyone else will i'll i'll start from the beginning it's a pretty much a i got orders the goat afghanistan like two weeks before i had to leave a lot of people know about a year in advance so i went and did a couple of restaurant challenges like he's the scene that tv show man versus food and ended at seven pound pizza and a three and a half pound burger and i put those down pretty pretty easily actually so the whole time i was deployed to afghanistan i would i was thinking about this a lot of the people at the point where you know encouraging me an insane i have to do this so when we got back from afghanistan and we start at are vacation are opposed deployment leave it just so happened to be there is a safer qualifier in atlanta and i was stationed at fort stewart georgia so it lived up so perfectly like i had to go do it and a there the the guy who wind up winning i finished second in that contest he had been aided by the water like before the clock this 'cause i was like i was like there's no way i'm doing that's gross a so you know i i got into it in you know you get you the entrance music the the end sees hyping you up the crowds cheering for you it was such a great thrill that i mean i would start from the very first bite once you're stature describe what you look like i'm six foot one about two twenty the two hundred ten pounds depending on how big a separate a and i'm i'm a professional wrestlers so i stay in the gym a about five days a week i asked the you know perform in front of people and pretty much my underwear so i have stay in shape that go were gonna get in wrestling in the minute like i'm so cat innovated value what you're like a are we've had a chase rice on no if you're a country music guy but there's worthy artist is name is chase rice and he is unbelievable full life where he finished second on survivor any of the country music star now and he played football at university of north carolina i call in country music forrest gump you're like you're like usa military forrest gump i mean you have all this all these amazing little facet it's a viewer life in it's just so interesting in how does a guy have you have you always kind of been around to ten to twenty when you put down a seven pound pizza and a three and a half pound burger where you do tony actually this is the story of me is i was two hundred pounds when i was twelve i was told at twelve years old like i was i was told by doctors straighten up and they have a heart attack before i was twenty a so when i was nineteen i joined the army and i was so out of shape like my first pete eat that not only do like thirteen pushups m like a seventeenth set up i was only a i was on the track for so long during the two mile run that a drill sergeant ran up to me i was like you gotta get the hell or skews me i don't know if i could say he's like you gotta get out much yeah he's like you gotta get the hell off my track because a forty two year old female with a sell by now so i was a completely out of shape and that was one of the motivating factors in jordan the army a loose i've always wondered it'd be a professional wrestler since i was a baby and i was like well i'm completely out of shape so and i'm i'm undisciplined and all that so how do i a better myself so i got into the army and i i don't even start really go into the gym it's about twentyone hoosier wrestling hero a brock without a doubt what is it about him so much charisma i when i was growing up it it seemed like everybody was either a stone cold or or goldberg fan and i don't know what it was but even as a little kid always remember the cheer for the bad guy for a lot of that time you know the rockwood stone cold the rival so who is megabyte ronnie that's that's me that was my nickname when i was deployed to afghanistan i did ity while i was in the army and i still do ity work 'em but why was deployed you know everybody was like hey you gotta come up with a nickname almost every competitive eater had a nickname at what am i sergeants came up with megabyte it just it was as soon as i heard it i was like that's it and you know everybody else pretty much agreed with me so i've been rolling with that and then megabytes pretty good for a competitive eater i mean that's like the competitive eating transformer mega by the way i like it so when you go into a competition like you will is this the fifth time how many times have you done the july fourth nathan's challenge so twenty thirteen twenty fourteen twenty eighteen in this year so is our hearts are you're going into you're fourth experience here how like life is repetition ronnie right and so how has your previous experience prepared you for what you're gonna try to accomplish this season and what is the goal this time around i think the gopher me would be the hit thirty five which would be about a fly actually about six higher than my personal best i had a huge gap between contests so i call i didn't qualify and twenty thirteen they brought me in as a military special appreciation gas a twenty fourteen that said the hell with that like i'm gonna qualify like any other leader in a qualified in charlotte north carolina and then from twenty fourteen of twenty eighteen outlaws sesing qualifiers it took me a long time to get back the nathan's and i think i was just so happy to get back there at twenty eighteen that it was a i didn't really put in the work i needed to do good in the contest i was just happy to be there inexperienced it so this year a i that's behind me like i'm i i'm not there to soak it up i'm up there to be as good as i can as a professional eater right this isn't a charity were going to win right right were going to write it done so water as the qualification processor nations like how do you how does that work so that many spots at the table but those around anywhere twelve this sixteen sixteen qualifiers that are held around the united states leading up to the fourth of july the top man at the top woman from each qualifier a goes on so this year i did my qualifier cincinnati reds game which was pretty cool the hotdogs in that stadium right after a baseball game what's the work you said you had and put in the work what's the work so i just like any other professional sport out there like you you've got a tray a you've gotta practice hotdogs you've got practice you're technique you've got a stretch out your stomach you gotta get used the children at swallowing fat 'em and that and that takes time and that and that hurts and that is just like any other sport the more practice you do the better you get at it how doing like how often do you show hotdogs and you face how how's this work so i would do a well trained schedule's been like now is for the past five weeks i did a five minute practice round so the nathan's contest is about ten minutes ball so i'll set a timer and i'll eat as many as i can in five minutes a some of those practice runs what i'll do is i'll drink a whole bunch of water before i start that practice round so i'm practice and eating gwob full so 'em as far as a data day goes i drink about four gallons a day a four gallons of water a day keep my stomach stretch though do that just sounds miserable you know it just sounds awful i don't understand the the laura i can't grasp and it's i i understand that like it's it's hard their grass and i don't i don't know what it is you know that makes us want it to this but it's i feel like if you talk to somebody who's the olympics brenner like improv his life on a daytoday basis probably isn't that good like he's probably out there running a you know ten twenty thirty whatever miles a day like anybody any top athlete is you gotta put in the work is just out is anything i'm sure even with their job like you you gotta put in the hours we get the despite you're at no question man what's the weirdest eating contest you participated in hard boiled eggs oh god i just threw up in my mouth how many there brutal yeah i think i did somewhere around sixty two to sixty five hard boiled eggs eight minutes i really just wrenched ronnie i just wrenched right here on my eyes are watering i have that about the feel about myself right now the worst about that contest was that it was done in kentucky and i was still in the army at this time and they were like a thirteen hour drive back so i had the sooners the contest is over at the hot car and drive back the ford stewart and i barely made it a in the morning formation for t t l let me tell you this dude i was driving back with all for windows down the tires on how how often do you deep you because you've eaten too much in do you do you ever practice like getting rid of all that access yes so for me i feel like a i'm not a big fan of sticking my fingers down my throat i think a now when you get to the i'm out those some of those kenny like you you have to for safety reasons but if if i eat a good amount and the food stays down i'm okay with that a but if it comes up i'm also not gonna fight it i did they a strawberry shortcake eating contest two weeks ago and i did ten and a half pound the strawberry shortcake in eight minutes and i had to get rid of that or i would have got diabetes like five thousand over what what eat like if you're if you're going out to eat how what do you order how much do you eat it do you always gorge how how does it impact your desire to eat a meal i i don't think i'm ever fooled to be honest with you like there's just a point where i i stop eating like if i wasn't worried about my shape or if i wasn't worried about a my health i would easily be six hundred pounds as 'em so i eat a lot of a a high volume of low calorie foods eight alive fruits and vegetables they eat a lot of boneless skinless chicken breasts a somebody somebody you look at my grocery bill would be like man you must love chicken it's not that i love is the only thing i could eat the stay in good shape how long until you feel normal when you eat sixty two hard boiled eggs like you said was thirteen hours back to where you were going how how long was it before you feel right i i would say the next day a lot of time at these contests even when i made thirty hotdogs that to ten minutes like i can honestly go out they eat again in like an hour from at i went out and got dessert after a contest before so it's it's it's a time limit thing so after ten minutes you know they shut us down i'm done eating for them but an hour later i could i could go again this is fundamental but how is it just you're bodies accustomed processing all that yeah i think so what i what i always tell people is that i think you either born with it or you're or you're not bored with it and then how much you wanna trained at is is how good you're gonna be so i don't know there's a lot of us on the on the circuit who will do a contest with each other that contest the b twelve it then at eight o'clock will go out will go out on the town that night and will put down like five six box with a pizza between us where i where i were all circus circus animals y'all ever done a beer chugging contest like man you know you wanna know about the the after party after the fourth of july where it how's that going down is that party it is a it is a lot of beer be in drink and i think that kinda correlate what you're eating ability we we we could all put about where were out on the town at new york city on the fourth of july is about to eight pm on a lot of karaoke a lotta a lotta ragged ragged on each other for how each other done it's kind of funny where all competitive with each other but were all pretty friendly with each other too so i after the fourth of july you you wanna sit there and you wanna do is good as you can but at the end of the day walk up the joe you walk up to those other guys in those props and i know this is a great time is is definitely my favorite day of the year the fourth of july it's mine too so y'all put down let's just say they average okay there's twelve people at the table let's say you're averages thirty is that a fair at the table yeah that's a good a good number okay so you you've on average put down thirty dog's with bonds in then y'all go out on the town and drink a case of beer you are legendary that is unbelievable it's a we i think we all would have been pretty popular in college so no doubt are so a couple more things and i'll let you i'll let you run brother a you said a moment ago like a backup yuban if for safety reasons you have to be what's that mean at what point does it say but they become a safety issue i think it becomes a safety issue when you're taking it too much sugar when you're taking it too much sodium were when you're taking too much fat a i did a podcast a about a month ago and it was called the name of the foods called able fevers but it's a it's a dangerous dessert it's basically a pancake ball and i like seventy four though i wasn't back a bird like they they were very sugary they were they like i wasn't concerned about my safety but like when i put down a bad amount of strawberry shortcake with that amount of sugar in there like i'm i'm just not gonna keep that in my body if i don't have to so you're still really young a we appreciate you time in afghanistan brother an you're thirty years old what what do you wanna do like when when ronnie looks down the line what what what does ronnie won't be i i mean i've i've said it since i was four a i want a headline wrestlemania an it's it's taken me a long time to get to this point in my life where i've started to become a professional wrestler i had a i had a lot of different things and they got in the way remotely down in the way of life took me in different directions before i could get the point where i could do this and a i've i've been doing this for about a year now and i'm getting into it so much later than a lot of kid but i i have to believe it myself that one day i'm with the headline wrestlemania or or was the point like i just know anything i didn't i i wanna be the best at it i'm just gonna keep believing in myself and and so you know i'm i'm not breathing anymore more pretty much do you have social media accounts like people yeah so you're so you're work yeah a if you wanna follow me you could follow me at megabyte ronnie that's m e g f b y t e r o n n i e megabytes smell smell like a computer megabyte a i'm on instagram and on twitter at if you're out there you're listening to a lot of support me like i i would greatly appreciate that unfortunately in professional wrestling skew social media status is kind of in my opinion comes in the play a little bit too much and i i'm thirty years old i'm a little bit behind in that game i don't i don't put out a whole lot of content but i could go on there and you could hit that follow button it's gonna help me out a whole lot because of products see see that and think i'm more popular than what i really am so there you go there by follow megabyte ronnie we appreciate you man thanks for sharing your story with us hey no problem already thanks thanks so much for having me on i really appreciate it that conversation with ronnie was brought to you guys by ziprecruiter ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire and travis what is urinalysis i'm thinking of what you just heard ronnie i can't might be upset with seriously ziprecruiter might be like who look man there's no way around it man the nathan's hot dog eating contest is an institution artists in american institution the dude every july fourth i think it's perfect everybody likes hotdogs on july fourth but good lord it's disgust i like so we at work you other day they have a cup of hot dog so i had i had like two that's good i do and i had before that i don't know the last time i had a hotdog but who's a solid effort that's enough but it's not seventy four i think that's what it network rani said joey chestnut eight seventy four hotdogs last year in the seventies so come in water and just oh they're using it to a time is oh just watching them like dumped those things in water and then devour them whole oh oh it honestly makes me almost blow motor like i want as my hot dog i'm gonna sit down you have a cold beer something like that tito's maybe hewitt yes and enjoy it puts a little catch up on it i'm gonna catch a guy with a hotdog like that's what i want you know what i do to this might be weird like hotdogs way i again ali ali in every now and then on july fourth of like i'll have turkey donald you know of course you have a turkey dog yeah i've turkey in so i what i put on i love to put all money is ketchup mustard and slow oh no no no no no no no you can't do small coleslaw rule mandated under rated it isn't under rated garnishment for like burgers certainly for barbecue sandwiches if you're eating barbecue ain't you ain't got slow then you're not doing it right i feel like smallest people met her own mardi well you didn't grow up in the south travis is that could be as a southern thing so i will give you a i'll give you that i've been eating slow first long as i can remember so i don't know that it's an old people thing and if there's no people think oh y'all geriatrics come on over my house will have a legal like my grandfather would always because we think you're gonna you're gonna have mine i am i actually had also rules as long as it's cold as long as the coal is in play you can't have warm slaw warms law is disgusting 'cause i'm not a mayo guy males disgusting which is eating contest i don't know how they do that i these other day were mcgann are talking about dukes mayo own a home mardian mcgee one day anna gotti other day a senate senator machine note about dukes mayo an ati tweeted it and everybody in the world throwback back to new charles not a helmet no oh you know this company that county whatever i'm not a mayo guy no thank you not interested in college so there's like for like six months there's nathan's hot dog restaurant like fifty every structure fifty cents the way what's really gonna join wrapped in bacon and then barbecue sauce some sweet baby wait a minute so a dog with by wrapped in bacon with barbecue sauce on maybe raise barbecue sauce i think it sounds pretty good i'm like i don't know how long will do that right it pepper jack cheese the go with it like he got you need a trust alone dog bro maybe next time i'm down lincoln north altright when i'm somewhere south maybe that's what i need well all right well we appreciate ronnie a lightning us with all of those very unique details and i did not know and i have honestly long wondered how one becomes a competitive eater what you're training regimen is and you do that the train that gross me out that he drank so much water just keep it stomach stretched out i just don't god bless them i mean if they could make a living and i bet joey i i haven't i don't have the google up right now but i bet joey network this property pretty good you're doing pretty well for himself you know considering you know he's been at this game for a while but man i i think i'd rather work like 'cause they can't even enjoy the food right it's according to the internet which is only worth as of two thousand nineteen is eight hundred thousand i think that that's a that's paper that's pretty good living i mean for a man who eats hotdogs in again i had the great opportunity to make joey last year he had just completed it in indianapolis we were any andy to cover ohio state northwestern in the big ten championship football game an we went to saint elmo's steakhouse are you aware lean downloading driving in in my heart saint elmo's in the shrimp cocktail artists legendary there shrimp cocktail will light you up like the fourth of july jones's can't breathe it'll fix yeah it it the horseradish in it is so gnarly need hit you square in the membrane man end you're crying in water doesn't help no like nothing helps coil the burn so you just have to sit there and wait on the burns dissipate so joey had just completed pleaded hey shrimp cocktail eating contest oh man oh yeah man the poor guy looked like hail his eyes were all puffy like could you imagine shoving all that shrimp cocktail and you're face as hard as you can go as fast as you can go for whatever i mean rani said most contests are eight the ten minutes i would never make it through their take made emergency room and give me life support will think about this is gonna burn when you go in in no matter what you do after it's coming one into with each other oh you're burning again like oh yeah it's not gonna feel good coming out the other side brother yeah way that like no thank you like would you rather have joey on one day undiscussed like 'cause he's like and he's a legit texas joey and let's see if we could wind after he wins 'cause there's a thirty for thirty coming out tuesday texan see a competitive eating thirty four thirty right yes about joe in kobayashi right yeah dude i can't wait to watch that although i don't know man i might get sick you you like the only thing that you might be able to win is like a cliff bar kind bar eating ironically i have eight eight make chocolate mint cliff builder protein bar sitting right beside my phone as we knew it because that's where you could that competition i could win that sound like how many how many could you eat and like five minutes i don't know man i'm not sure because they do make you gassy right so i mean that could end up being the issue i won't be gassy nobody wants to have like a like that's another thing about the competitive eating is like imagine i hate being bloated i hate how that feels an ronnie just told us they eat thirty hotdogs on average bridge among the group and then they go out in manhattan until two pm getting smashed anco beer and you mentioned being that bar and you see those guys walking in i can't imagine how they must feel i want next year can we get you follow them around until they go like until they're done so maiming maniac engage in a cold beer part yeah just go party with a mall the bar has to be thinking oh there goes on every beer we have although you're a total poser like you're rolling in with chestnut and ronnie well it's worth avenue to the document it yeah that's right i needed and obviously anita hill ronnie pump up the social media following speaking about ronnie speaking alcohol i ask you this last week you sent me a text a couple of weeks ago about you go into the liquor store yup and like i like a consent former waiver something you had the silo weird so i am in south jersey leaning any nine are family we have a home here an a near the beach and so but the liquor up here costs exponentially more than it costs oh yeah carolina so laney asked me to go to the liquor store north carolina before i came north lane he's in love with this new stuff called deep eddy you ever heard of this year's yes that's voc it's a it's a vodka with like it's a fruit infused by you're gonna get limit you could get like lemonade we do all sorts of flavors peach limb i brawl peach lemon grapefruit and then about a fourth the fourth cranberry baby high cranberry i bring for different types here an eyeball a a couple bottles for myself about a couple of subsequent bottles

This thing is up one hundred and thirty two percent in the last seven days over the last couple of weeks this saying has gone from like forty bucks two hundred and fifty bucks and now it's back down to one hundred and twenty one but you think about a joel like we're always looking for these different coins that could maybe mood and all those those of oh what about these small cabin the high volume great projects but like right in front of your face is buying ans- sitting there and it's at what total total market cap now eighteen billion dollars now buying ads and man. I remember this thing was just like pennies. And you get it so you could do trades cheaper on buying anson here. It is now hundred and some odd dollars. Not even done the graph. Gret tokens up. One hundred and thirty one percent ox zero x was up actually twenty one hundred twenty three percent and cardinal ada at one hundred and twelve percent. And those are. Just the tokens out. We're up over one hundred percent this week. I wish i had some bnb. I do not back march of last year so basically eleven months ago it was ten dollars and thirteen cents and then if you follow it along it's pretty much up up up and then it gets to like the last week. It goes show swing right win. When was it at ten bucks dollars. A march fourteenth twenty twenty. It a taking your bitcoin at that point which because it was about thirty. Eight hundred bucks yeah. Did you know that. This is the picks and shovels like people are using by nance. It's a great platform and it's interesting that buying ads has done what it's done and then coined based never created a token and they're going the traditional ipo route Yeah i think that That easy got it right actually. So we'll be interesting to see now as far as the downs for the week. There aren't any if you're coin was down for the week. Then you probably were not in the top one hundred. There's like a couple coins that had minus two three four five percent. Each other was down a little bit. Us story is bitcoin. Heather was down a little bit. That doesn't count down point o. o. One swap was down a little bit. I mean it only went up four percent. That's kind of like downy theorems kinda down this week. It only went up six point three percent. Yeah jane was kinda down at only went up nine point four percent. Yeah up anything. Less than two figures is down for the week adam. You didn't gain a hundred percent of this past week then you suck shit coin. Banishing you for bankrupt. The big story is bitcoin. Of course elon. Musk announced that tesla would start accepting payments in bitcoin for its products but they also revealed that they have a stake of one point. Five billion dollars worth of bitcoin. Doesn't it make sense that somebody like elon. Musk would lead the way because there really is going to be a domino effect. You're right we're going to see it. I think bitcoin was down to what about forty two thousand after hitting highs of forty eight or so and then it went up to over forty six thousand now. It's at forty seven and seems discounted forty eight earlier by the time the show goes live. It hit fifty three thousand by the time. August thirty to tune. It's up one hundred and twenty thousand dollars just total nonsense if you'd watched some of the stuff that banter that's going on on the twitter as you'd like to call it You know michael sailor. Who is the ceo or the one of the head guys over there micro strategy. Who's a lot was having a conversation with with elon. Musk about haymaker stockholders. Proud get some bitcoin on your on your ledger. You're worth all. This money converts on the bitcoin. La la and he asked me. Lana zak asked like oh well. Can you do this. You know big amounts or something like oh yeah and they don't have a conversation next. That was a couple of weeks ago. Next thing you know elon. Musk puts big hashtag. Bitcoin in its bio and couple days later pow The the the the records came out that that Tesla put one point five billion dollars in in bitcoin. So far right this is just this is just the beginning. And they haven't said that they're gonna accept crypto yet so when a correct that from that article. They said they may start accepting bitcoin payments. But come on they will. why why. why wouldn't they zealand. Musk in the emmys talking about bitcoin. we'll get. He's talking to doj coyne. He's making all kinds of tweets about doj. And we'll get into doj here in just a little bit. But i think this move by tesla. According to this article on bloomberg that tesla trails only micra strategy in their treasury. Bitcoin allocation yes sailor. Who you just mentioned. They have three point. One billion in bitcoin and micro strategy. You have been that much on that about bitcoin. It was way cheaper around fifteen twelve to fifteen. So yeah you know does the might have in a little earlier than that. You know what i wonder. What peter schiff has to say. Act stupid schiff. We'll gold is actually down right now. I took a look at gold and silver prices today. Gold is at eighteen hundred and twenty five an down from its all time high of two thousand silver sitting around twenty seven dollars an ounce. You know it's really interesting. What yesterday just out of curiosity. I'm not buying any silver. But i looked at j. bouillon where i have purchased from before and their stock of physical coins is still incredibly small In from their inventory the cheapest one ounce silver around on the site is thirty two dollars an ounce the current spot prices twenty-seven it selling they're selling for five dollars over spot price right now. We're celebrating lower than forty right with the prices. Come back down and it's still it's like. The physical supply of silver is low and if they weren't trading all this you know five hundred x on paper. The price would be mooning you ever the after but the their excuses they have to artificially keep the price down because they need silver for electronics these smartphones and all this stuff and so they can't have the price of silver mooning so they create all this bs paper as you mentioned so. Who's gonna be next traffic. Who's who is going to be the next company major corporation to step up and hit invest in bitcoin. Yeah well you mentioned in the in the teaser of the show that there are some rumblings and some rumors going on that. Maybe apple might throw down a few billy on some bitcoin. Would that be crazy. Because they've been kind of against you know crypto and bitcoin. I remember whatever You know facebook came out with their currency and then and then tim cook came out and said no. We don't think that any company should be a part of this and can grits caesar for the state controlled things and blah blah blah and. They've been very difficult for companies to actually even have functioning wallets and and different that you can't mind crypto and you can't do some of these other things on crypto but man if they decided to do a little something on the bitcoins relating about it because the you know square has thirty million monthly active users and they reported one point six billion in revenue from bitcoin. Nothing about apple's installed user base of one point six five billion devices if they wanted to get into the crypto business they would be instantly disruptive instantly. I mean they would overnight they would shoot up the charts as one of the crypto leaders and we're talking billions and billions of dollars. Just by doing that. I mean they. I mean they're already printing money. Let's face it. But tim cook could go you know. Print some more crypto bom. And they'll have already bought you know or or who knows. Maybe they're already accumulating. I mean do you really think. Apple's not accumulating everything. I don't know if apple as a whole is doing it but there's probably a lot of key people who work at apple. Who's doing that. But i mean think about that. I mean the one of the easiest places to buy crypto coin base right so you can connect your bank account but think about apple pay. They already have your bank account information. They already have your credit card or your debit cards right there and it could almost be like a version of like coins. Zoom or crypto dot com card where you can convert your crypto cash and then use your cash at any place and then every time. They do a transaction. They get a little piece of bitcoin and if projecting that bitcoin over time is going to continue to rise and rise apple would be foolish to not do it. Dan wise cop is a portfolio manager at toronto investments in the said late last year that apple investing team between ten and twenty billion in bitcoin would be more profitable in the long term than aggressively buying back stock. It also acts as a hedge against inflation. He said that back in november when bitcoin was what twelve thirteen thousand or so i mean if they had done it then and they're sitting at forty six thousand. Now this is interesting to the final stat in this coin. Telegraph article says that apple has a market cap of more than two point two trillion and two hundred billion cash on hand hypothetically enough to buy twenty five percent of all mcquaid in circulation really intricate about that because they you gotta try to buy them and like the not boost the price too much because then you end up posing yourself. I mean that was one thing that michael sailor mention is that they bought those fifteen thousand bitcoin but they did it over several days. Little portions at a time so that they didn't impact the market you. I think they're actually buying and selling and buying the trying to like get good deals on but yeah you were saying what was the price. Ninety days ago. Bitcoin ninety days ago indus in november bit. Yes like november thirteenth. Which is you know. basically ninety days ago Bitcoin was sixteen thousand. Two hundred bucks. That was already starting. It's you know we had that one big thing where it was like okay. Bitcoin been over ten thousand dollars for one hundred days in a row that whole we had that conversation multiple times and then shortly thereafter man. It was literally like bitcoin one hundred days in a row. Oh look at what's happened every time. Bitcoin hit a major price point and then was for one hundred days in a row and then boom shortly thereafter. It was like ten twelve blah blah blah blah blah. Up like it was at ten thousand eleven thousand dollars in mid mid october. And then here. We are at Just just just today. We had forty eight thousand. That's an all another all time high. It's like we're having an all time. I like every other week. It's getting to the point. Where like it's like okay. Another all time. High whoopy-doo amazed eighty thousand dollars. I know it's it is. It's not like this is not even a doubt in the minds of any of us. I can't imagine what circumstances would be for bitcoin to not hit fifty soon. Even if there was a dip. I It's going to happen pretty soon as a result according to this article on bitcoin dot com. Bitcoin has overtaken gold. In the united states. As the fourth most popular investment vehicle the first being stocks fifty four percent of people voted for that thirty five percent. 401k and cds and insurance thirty one percent said real estate thirty percent said bitcoin and cryptos and then it goes apple shipped mutual funds and only burcin said how he said it. If he was still alive he would i would. I would say this i. I would think that you know what. What investment asset would be most attractive to people but like dividing those out a little bit like the stocks. Like you know which stocks are people are most like. Where would bitcoin fit. If we're if we have like the top one hundred stocks and people are investing in those four one ks or gold or silver. Or whatever. I'd like to maybe not just all group stocks okay. Stocks great but which stocks like are there whereas bitcoin fit in like on the top ten most investable stocks no not not just stocks as a category but like what tesla apple amazon. What are people most interested in. What what is this thing you. What's a stock. I don't know that word. It's like a stunk. A strong stunk. I know yeah stocks sparkin. Yeah in the stunk. Wars are heating up in more about that shortly. But i wanna make sure you guys are hopping in two chain games.

And you can play as travis myself by driving the bad coin cart. It's superfund go. Download it now. Chain games dot i o. And check out all the other cool things that they got going on over there love. It love that platform. Great job adam. Barlow out to you my brother. Here's some news from reuters that Police have seized sixty million dollars worth of bitcoin. However they're like what. What's the password. Fifty million euros from a fraudster but they can't unlock the money because he won't give them the password. Here's the thing. He probably doesn't know the password. It's like it's hidden somewhere not just gonna remember the private keys unless you're like one of those like super memory people. Oh it's three c. G four capital h. Like what i mean. It's it's a long character right. It's shot to fifty six and seventeen hundred bitcoin and They're they're trying to crack the code to access that seventeen hundred bitcoin yet. They ask him but they wouldn't say he probably doesn't know it's on a piece of paper somewhere it's on it's probably it's probably stashed in his crack repository did that. Yeah tory here's my. Bitcoin is password. Yeah that's lot of money at He was arrested and the price of bitcoin has gone up significantly since yours arrested more than a couple years ago. And so it's now worth more than sixty million dollars. Probably not going to let him out of jail anytime soon. Because use your postcode. We don't have a pasco but he probably doesn't even have it who knows. He finds his codes on the blockchain. So doesn't necessarily have to be on a wall it's on the blockchain. He can probably access it somewhere else but That is that is interesting. You gotta gotta have that pasco decryption keys to open that up and Sorry police good news. Bad news out of nigeria. They are cracking down and closing things in nigeria. That's the good news. The bad news is that. They're cracking down. crypto accounts. So yeah this is a slow. The role of nigerian princess. You know emailing us. I mean horrible you. So first of all nigeria's the biggest economy in africa. They've got over two hundred million people there in one of the most bitcoin interested countries on the planet and now they're basically saying that They're banning crypto accounts and that their countries. Sec has said they're qualified cryptos or to be securities. They said that last year another banning cripple counts. you know that's that's really sad and Yes all transactions. From crypto are banned in nigeria. And they've had this this blockchain startup economy. And it's been it's been lost over there as well and you know when companies when countries say. Hey can't do this or for one. There's gonna become a cd. Underbelly people are gonna do it anyways and use. Vpn's what this really does is. It really hurts. The the un banked and really hurts the people who were counting on that and hopefully they keep their bitcoin. And then guess what. Maybe you're able to travel out of the country and go do a transaction somewhere else. And i don't know i don't know what to tell you but to ban hanging to ban bitcoin well there. It's not only nigeria. This article from daily coin dot com says india may fast track. Its bill to ban the use of bitcoin and other private cryptos. And they're trying to go what they call the ordinance route route which would allow it to be passed into law quickly. Yeah well that's because they want to have their own central bank Digital currency right. They want to say this is the one you can use. You can't use that one and you know what this just goes to show people who are in government very rarely do they actually look out for the their citizens. They normally look out for their own pockets. Man's what happens in most countries. It's just crazy a lot of corruption. i'm not a big fan politicians in general but that's what happens again. Power people who crave power gonna do power things. Dr garrick heilmann. The head of research at blockchain dot com stated. My hope is that. Indian policymakers will recognize how counterproductive. This legislation is withdraw. Such bands have been contemplated in the past in india and even attempted in various other countries. Proposed bands have typically either been scuttled before implementation or largely. Uninformed i like that he used the word scuttled a you get. You know dr heilmann. You have ten points and half a bad point for using the word. Scuttled congratulations you. May pick up your winnings from travis right so i was watching the t. the twitter's yesterday and there was lots of rumblings from s. J w we're talking about how bitcoin bad because it is so much like dress and so harbaugh and as they get in their gas guzzling vehicle and drive away But there is some merits to that. Bitcoin does consume more electricity now then argentina and thinking of this though. Bitcoin is just one crypto. There's a lot of other cryptos that are out there that consume much energy at all and so i think that it is interesting. Especially after tesla invested heavily in bitcoin. S j w started coming out and really complaining about it but really. They're probably complaining because they don't actually have any and they wish they had some It's not fair that we don't have redistribute your bitcoin us subtle be fair. Those were not doing anything in. We're living in mom's basement and we need bitcoin to not fair. You guys have. We'd all do that. We mentioned doj earlier. Of course elon. Musk has been tweeting about it. Pretty regularly and mark cuban. Who i really you know. Congratulations on your success. And being a billionaire. And all that. But i do not admire the guy personally. He said doges not a bad. Look for crypto users. Okay yeah mark. Cuban said some words. Yeah well you know what. What's interesting is mark. Cuban actually launched his own. Nafta they basically sort of like the cameo then he goes. Tell me what you want me to say. And i'll send you this. And i'll put it on the blockchain it'll be there forever. And then he was going to charge somebody x. Amount to do it. I think it was gonna be like thirteen thousand but ended up sitting in for free. It was He's he's and he's doing lots of outs about nba top shot and he's big on nfc's nfc's was the thing that actually made mark. Cuban finally realized that bitcoin crypto is important. He realized digital collectibles. He's i wait a second. I own the freaking dallas mavericks. I can get this card and own this and the value saw the values and everything popping up. I think that was i think is what woke up cuban. Welcome to the party. Mister cuban another story here at the last minute service travis. Because it's another doj story. It's your on. Bitcoin dot com the headline mysterious doj coin address absorbed twenty seven percent of the supply. The top twenty addresses capture. Fifty percent of the supply has must said how much doj he owns. No but that's that is that is crazy when you see when you see the you know the masses like on tiktok and read it and buy dollars by house. Do they realize that the top how many how many accounts fifty of the top twenty address hold more than fifty percent. This how these people have been watching this address. It received its first doj february. Six two thousand nineteen got five hundred doj sent to it then sixty doj were sent to it and then another two transactions after then all of a sudden the address received over one point six billion doj in a transfer in months later the address took a massive amounts of doj coin and has amassed over twenty seven percent of the supply. of course there's speculation Musket said to the public that doj might be as favourite crypto currency. He'd been tweeting about a lot. Some say could be him who knows. Well lord knows he's got lots of cash scholla and It is kind of funny to think about. He did on must did tweet this out. Because the future currency of doj coin to the moon. i mean. if you're him you have all that ridiculous money. How fun would it be to say. You know what i'm gonna. I'm gonna buy a crap ton and supply i'm gonna be king doj right and it always to a few things say a few words and the price goes name. I'm gonna be king of the shiba news and they show all hail me as such. Yeah well everyone loves does and if you like stocks and does then you're going to like stock wars which we'll talk about the letter. Indeed we will. Let's talk about for a moment. It has rallied up the charts a hundred and thirty nine percent. Why because now they have on the tests nat integrated smart contract functionality. Which of course is what is driven. If theory him to the height set has been. There's you know there's a few were here at the top of the list. That are smart contract based coins. Of course we've got a theory. We've got car. Donald a polka-dot. You know in the number five slot chain link in the number nine slot. There's you know the the ability to build finances doing a bill on a platform these are platforms that are building the the the highways the shovels and picks as you were saying for all of those that want to come onto the crypto space and build. Their coins does look at all the things you can build on nothing. You can't build shit on doj literally. I actually an interesting thing over here on the side of this coin. Telegraph america's oldest bank bien. Line melon will start to custody. Bitcoin has interesting news. Also robin hood melvin and citadel executives are going to have to testify on the game stock issue before congress won't probably about nothing. Yeah i'm sure congress kinds of insightful questions about that because because they know others article here daily coin about plans to be excited about in q. One twenty twenty one. A quick rundown of them shows some of the ones. We've mentioned cosmos is one here that issues scale ability and blockchain's polkadot is another electron him did not know. This electron is listed in here. We've been advisors for electronic. We're still waiting for it to get back to that one penny. Ico christ though right. Yeah and I guess it's a good time to mention that You know one of the cool things about electron is there any task platform and i actually Used any task for a research project which didn't cost very much. And they got a great researcher. And i mean they get paid in eighteen tokens and they're able to then tap up their electricity if they're in the right countries or tap up and top off their their cell phone minutes so it's a pretty cool ecosystem. I'm glad to see that they're on this list very very nice you know. I saw an email today from electronic. They were talking about. How you can build your. Nfc's on any task in. We've had that work done there. And if you look at the nfc world heart. It's it's blowing up all over but really. Our focus has been primarily on wax and this article came out on decorator dot com. That says that january was their biggest growth. That you know they've seen in a long time month over month. There number of daily active wallets grew from nine thousand to almost twenty one thousand. That's almost one hundred forty six percent growth. That's huge and we're you know you. And i are just eyeballs deep and wax and worth seeing all of the properties in the launches. Were seeing stuff like bitcoin come out in. Having hundreds of thousands of people want to bligh blocks of their collectibles and they sell out in a second. It's likewise what it is insane and looking at this. I mean that's a really that's a really good telltale sign nine thousand almost twenty one million and one of these that. I've been watching this thing like. Here's all these great properties and holly sales that are happening on the space and i was really cool. Innovative stuff happening on wax. And it's almost like it's the greatest known secret to the crypto world and the prices have been around anywhere between three and a half cents to four and a half cents and just kind of lingered there for for a couple of few months and maybe because of the whole gruppo crypto season. Boom going on right now. I notice that waxes today. At six point two cents as nice as see mo move it up nicely and there's just there's a lot happening You know if you're am has problems and this is why we've got side chains like matic flow which are helping to solve those problems at a theory but if during that its core if you wanna move anything on chain the gas whose like yesterday I'm a fan of sandbox. sandbox dot. Game our friends at animal co created. They sell out land on sandbox super super fast and i logged in yesterday. 'cause i bought for plots. I don't know couple years ago during one of their land sales. You can't build on him yet. But i've got these four pieces of land when i logged in. It said. Hey you get a free smurfs and not for being a sandbox landowners. So i went to claim and it was sixty dollars in gasps to claim the spree. Nf so i waited until it came down to about twenty five. And i'm like yeah. I'll pay twenty five bucks to get this little know collectible smer fifty my wallet for a sandbox but this is a problem In on wax. You don't have these issues in look a lot of your joining our blockchain heroes telegram now or block or the The bad crypto telegram. Saying you know you're coming over because you've heard about on the show if you're within earshot and you are because you're hearing us right now join us Income down this rabbit hole. You a lot of you have been with us from the beginning and you've come down the crypto rabbit hole. Do not miss what's happening in the nfc world. I'm not telling you to spend money. I'm not telling you ten best. I'm telling you. Comm check out not just what we're producing but what others producing as well. And it's the telegram that encapsulates all of those things as t dot me ford slash bbc heroes. Where are doing some evolution on that to creating a hero. Hq on this cord. that's going to be some. We'll be doing some really cool stuff with that to give out some hero today on the show or week given week about some here today. I'll tell you what. Why don't you talk a little bit about this next article here on a daily coin dot com all about entities. That was written by some dude. And i'm going to set that up. Yeah yes so the nfl. T market overview part four by this guy named joachim. Joel overlord joel. Considering her job not forget we had a landowner square. Boats cultus landowners. Yes talking about uplift. Art putting love on the blockchain big fans of michael blue and his uplift dot art. We really liked this guy and artwork that he creates and the songs that he creates with the artwork because they like their own little sort of movements each one and one of the things that the michael blue does is. They take a big portion of sales from all their nafta's and they go towards building a pain for a school in haiti and so mark. Valentine's day Michael and his wife. Francesca who is italian while she wrote this poem called. What tom. oh something of love Hold on here detail. Yama live on that what it's called. I'm so his wife is like a poet and wrote this thing called a tama. Which is the italian word of love and and they've actually create these little fragments and there's going to be these two always going to be these twelve to our many events and you can pick up these twelve fragments then you burn them. That's gonna turn into an nfc music video and And then so buying these different portions in in an offer that what's cool is that a big percentage i think fifty percent actually goes to To funding the school in haiti and so using nfc's and love to help educate a country. That's been through some craziness recently. Some big shots of them and nice article services yoko. Thank you. I like the words. I like to use them when i right. It's amazing how that helps with articles and you know they're not the only ones making stuff happen. One of the the biggest properties in the video game world is cap calms streetfighter. Huge came after. You know my teenage years where i was doing fighting games but the next generation really picked up on it. It's still strong today. And they are releasing their first set of digital collectible trading cards on wax. And that happens. What's the date for it. Think the eighteen on the nineteenth nineteen street fighter dot cards is backwards and it's going to be a twenty four hour sale starting february nineteenth at noon eastern and then the unpacking and the cracking and all that stuff happens immediately after the sales over so the next day. I actually yeah. The back sales will go on sale on the eighteenth at noon and then go for twenty four hours and they end on the nineteenth february eighteenth year right and then for one day and then at february nineteenth at noon eastern the unpacking and the cracking and the crafting and all that stuff begins and you can actually create new cards by taking these cards and then mash them together and create new special card. So there's going to be lots of stuff down at various different variations. They call it a crafting system and it basically will take your card. You'll combined them and you'll get a new higher level card all the way up to ultra rare for crafting crafting bonus and this. I personally think this is gonna be huge that they are going to sell thousands and thousands of packs in twenty four hours and why. I think that it's first of all. You've got a known brand right. Everybody knows streetfighter and they've been giving away a free. Nfc every day for the past three or four days and basically it's a sticker it's a circle and f. t. that has one of the fighters on the the nfc and they're giving it away for free on atomic. You just have nowhere to go to get it while every day over those twenty four hours. Ten thousand of those are being claimed. I've not seen any free. Nf t have that fate of interest. I've seen some that. Have a couple. Three thousand maybe but ten thousand there are people that are rabidly waiting for this product launch. Yeah from street fighter. Two superheroes on the blockchain or purple here on global news wire the apparently there's a new blockchain heroes digital collectible. Nfc trading card set his parodying the wall street bats scenario and the whole game stop. And it's called stunk wars This is our mini sats version.

Great, greg. Thank Commissioner of the southeastern conference joins me to discuss all of the variables of his job things that he faces every single day his greatest concerns as he moves forward in that role the greatest challenges that he faces every single day when he sits down in the head office down there in Birmingham, Alabama. What it's like to actually be in that head chair compared to what you think it might be how he got here his amazing journey from Auburn New York where he grew up to Birmingham as the Commissioner of the southeastern conference and not only that we also discuss pressing issues in collegiate athletics today, like potential player compensation his thoughts on whether or not these collegiate players should be compensated for playing major college football or major college basketball. Whether he believes in the current system that is the college football playoff. What is his thoughts on potential expansion? We get into many different things, and it was a fascinating conversation one that really inspired me certainly one that educated me, and is going to have the same impact on you. Look this man, Greg Sankey is in one of the most prestigious most important most scrutinized roles in all of sport in this country Commissioner of the southeastern conference, and what an honor to have the opportunity to spend twenty five or thirty minutes with him really digging into his leadership philosophy his path to now. And what he sees when he looks into the SEC crystal ball moving forward. Here's our conversation on the Marty Smith's America podcast with SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey. So Greg, let's just start with your path. I don't know that journey house a guy from Auburn New York end up as C Commissioner. How's that work? Well, my quick vision for life was to be coaching and teaching at the high school level, and I ended up right out of college working in a college setting or in the master's at Syracuse had complete an internship did that and Louisiana which was just one of those great adventures in life and then from northwestern state university in nacogdoches Louisiana to their conference office and became Commissioner of that league. The Southland conference at age thirty one. And during that time to know Mike's live mics and upstate New York. I was born and raised in Utica, New York, and we became friends and one day he said, would you ever think about working in the SEC office? And I said I haven't but I will and that put me here and and had some. Some success and opportunities had some chances to leave and then and stayed and then went through a full search process upon Mike's announce retirement, and boom here we are. That's the the quick version. Where could you have gone if you so chosen to leave? You know, I almost there was a a weekend where I was the athletic director Colgate university. I went through that search process actually went up to visit with the trustees, and in some ways, it was a great professional moment in some ways. It was one of those low points on my professional life where I said, you know, what the day of the press conference. This really isn't for me. So those who've seen, you know, Bobby Cremins, Billy Donovan, there's some great people have said. Yeah, that's the right job. And then wait a second. So I pulled one of those was involved in a search min America conference that went down the road along way back in about oh nine and and just decided that wasn't the right situation. A number of things that came to me in college athletics. You know, I've always wanted to work in sports, but in an educational context is opposed to a professional level. And you know, just was always challenged here and was learning every. Day and decided to stay and again that the opportunity to be part of the search for the Commissioner manifested itself. And you know, it's now been over three and a half years in the seat and things are going. Well. I think they're going very well. I think you made the right choice on that path. And I wanna get the philosophy and all that in a minute. But stay in with the theme of growing up. Did you grow up? Syracuse fan. Oh, absolutely. They they made a run at the final four under a head coach name, ROY Danforth. And Jim boeheim was an assistant in nineteen seventy five. It was John wooden last year's coach at UCLA and UCLA one that that final four, and I I was listening on the radio at that time and the big east conference did not exist. They played in. What was called the CAC and went through its turnament format. No much smaller NCA tournament format, but mardi that was when this notion of college sports came alive. I was eleven years old. It was also that year when when I won the cleanest desk award at school, which if you saw my desk right now that was the one month in my life. My desk was clean and the the prize was a book, and I chose they call me coach, which was John wooden biography. I actually still have the book that I won back in sixth grade in nineteen seventy five it's in my off. Office and I'm looking at it right now. And all of that was a moment for me that that kind of created this notion of going to college having an opportunity to work in sports. And you know, maybe some some way somewhere way long down the road. I might be able to work in college sports setting. How would you describe your business philosophy? Well, business leadership there's kind of a much announce that fit in there. It's high expectations for the people around me, the expectation is for myself to act with integrity. I learned a long time ago that I have to live by a set of principles that inform my priorities. I want my family to be able to thrive, but I also want to work hard. And dedicated way, I want to show up to work with people who are excited about what they do. With whom I want to work I wanna set high expectations and see those expectations achieve as opposed to always have into to prod and move people along I think that in what I do it is a highly relational business. So we're talking mid morning. I've already visited with four athletic directors on phone calls about looking forward type issues did the same thing yesterday. And that's a thumbnail sketch of the priorities, but we also want to excel at this level there are high expectations. So we talk about from vision graduating every student athlete winning every championship and having the opportunity to change the world because of doing those two things very well. Who and what shaped that approach? Well, me and my dad is as a welder, he's a union pipe fitter. And my grandfather was his stepfather. And you know, there weren't anything that we're not any paid vacations. It was get up early and go to work. I had two summers where I actually worked and the construction of nuclear power plant where you know, you're up at five you had to be on the job at seven you worked at the ten hour day. The pay was good, and you work six days a week on that job. And you know, it was kind of work and come home and rest and go back to work, and it was just that cycle watching him. And and knowing how he met the needs of our family, my mom's energy, there's a lot of of myself that I've taken just from watching them not because they sat me down and said, here's the way life has to be. But watching how they live my mom earned her college degree. In her forties. They never overtly said you're going to college. But it was like this expectation that was always present along with this really significant work ethic around care for family, and and maintaining relationships around you, and then, you know, through my professional career, I've had the opportunity to work with four or five really really good leaders. And then stop and watch other people around me Marty. One of the great things for me is I've been in these rooms since nineteen eighty nine with the athletic leadership from division one. And you ain't gotta sit in the back and watch and listen and learn a lot if you're smart enough to do that that you don't always have to be. I didn't have a phone to beyond the check Twitter at that point. So. Much more engaged listening opportunity to all of that combined to make me who I am today. And part of the challenge for me is that it's not static that that learning has to be a lifetime commitment, which is central to. I am. Who do you think you are right now in January of two thousand nineteen compared to who you were on March thirteenth two thousand fifteen when you officially took the job as the Commissioner of the southeastern conference. Yeah. Good research on dates there, man. You know that day the there was a relief. I remember I gave you my my bile, my wife, and I at the end of that that day back in March of twenty fifteen had a moment where I looked at her, and we hogged, and I said at work, and she said what worked and I said all of it the decision to take a job to not take a job to be on this committee or go to that meeting or or not go, I said it works. So on that day. There was a great sense of relief today my stomach continually is in a not if you will just the intensity of the role. You don't know what it's like to sit in the chair at the end of the hall until you literally sit in the chair at the end of the hall. So I had the opportunity for six and a half years to lead a smaller conference. I knew a little bit of that the intensity here is is much greater than anything. I'd ever experienced. So to really get to the question, I have a much greater awareness about the significance of what I say. And its meaning on a national stage, and so much more careful perhaps than I have been much more intentional about taking time for myself every day, otherwise my days and or just overrun with issues. I'm a lot more open to communication seven days a week because I understand better today. That's the job, and I'm probably more focused. I'm more focused on what's next than what is. So our staff has to deal with what is today from time to time, I engage in those issues, but the real expectation is that we're looking to the future or around the corner to see what's next and make sure that we're fully prepared for whatever realities may manifest themselves. What's next? Yeah. That's a good question. You know, we we. We just went we just completed football season. And during that football season, we were talking about what's next, you know, the the world of attention around officiating and every sports very different. So we have been in meaningful discussions about. How do we communicate more effectively about that aspect of what we do? We've taken a long look knowing that in twenty twenty three we have a conclusion date around our contractual relationship with CBS for broadcasting or first pick football games, we announced in November and affiliation with evolution media, creative artists agents see television, which is five years in advance of that date to help us prepare because that world is changing so quickly. You know, we're waiting for a judge's decision in some litigation around college athletics. Part of your question. We'll be. Answered by that judge's decision. And and what plays out next we wanna make sure in the future we have high expectations. So I see in this conference. Continuing enrollment increases continuing hard to believe but continuing increase of attention, and we've got to prepare for that from a public relations and communication standpoint. As we move forward, you were discussing not knowing what it's like to be in the big charity into the hall until you're in that chair. I can't imagine what they won must've been like what what what was the first day. Like when you were in that chair here you've had all these years of print in the SEC system, the SEC administrative system. But now, you're the guy what was that first day? Like, I'm gonna talk about two first days if I may so my my first day officially is Commissioner was the Monday after our spring meeting and destined back in two thousand fifteen and I purposely on that day because it was June. And we didn't have any. Of our contest going on. It was all postseason. I took the day. The right. A whole bunch of notes and letters and emails to people who helped me get here to just say, thank you. And I done some research. I wrote to my second grade teacher who was one of those people that you just remember inspired me as a young person. I wrote to my college baseball coach about a particular moment in my college experience where he helped me understand what leadership really was and at that point. I wasn't at the end of the hallway sitting in a Commissioner's chair as a freshman on a baseball team who was a backup catcher. And he intersected me and helped me understand more about leadership an author named John or Berg who in a moment in my adult life when I needed to rethink how I was living encountered a book he'd written called the life. You've always wanted. And I saw that title. I'm like, hey. Yeah. That's like the the secret. And it wasn't a secret. It was just a a moment where I had to rethink. Some of my commitments and principles that I talked about earlier. So that's that's really what I did on day. One a lot of phone calls. They to reality started to hit though. But the next week I moved into the Commissioner's office, Mike sly my predecessor after our spring meetings was was packing up and moving out that week. And I remember that first day sitting at the desk, I now occupy at eight in the morning kind of overwhelmed for a few minutes because I visited this very office in nineteen ninety eight when I was thirty three years old. I was Commissioner of the Southland conference was coming here to meet with ROY Kramer. And remembering the first time I walked in here thinking while I'm in the office of the SEC Commissioner a place on that that day when I was actually in here I occupied. So I dealt with the offer about fifteen minutes. And then again, I think something walked through my door came to me on the phone where you're like, oh, you're the leader now and the distinction between. Kind of being an adviser. And then being in the chair to decide is one that that I can't overstate, you know, when you're when you move into those roles, and again, I'd had it before you're listening to advisers, or when you're an associate Commissioner executive associate Commissioner, you're saying here's what I think. Then ultimately, the Commissioner has to decide and that is a change in and mentality. Where you listen, you listen, and then you decide as opposed to being able to just contribute to the conversation. And and that was present in both of those first days that you're alternately decider on certain issues and those decisions have impact you noted that book it intrigues me. What did you want to do differently? How did you wanna live your life differently? Well, my first visit ironically to the SEC office was scheduled for September of ninety seven and as I traveled here was in the Atlanta airport, and I passed out and ended up spending a night in the hospital. With a regular heartbeat. Cardiac. Arrhythmia atrial fibrillation is what they called. And I was at a time where it at that point. I was in my early thirties to kids wasn't sleeping exercising wasn't eating. Right. I was drinking a ton of law as and there's a Seinfeld episode where Kramer got pre law taste, and he walked out of a store just jittery and talking fast and flat out that knock me on my back in you know, in that moment was in a bathroom when I passed out and needed some medical help you get through that. And you're like, wow. This can't stay the same. And I spent about six months visiting with a cease wheat people if you will live. I lived in Dallas at the time vice presidents of JC Penney and a company called EDS that Ross Perot, it started MCI, which the predecessor of rise and number of other folks just to say, you know, how? You balance things, and then I bought this. So six months of not trying to figure out, you know, how do I balance work and life and family, and I ended up reading this book and in the book there was a line. That said the problem with chasing balance is not that it's too great a ago, but it it's too. It's insufficient. I'm like, wow, I spent all this time, and that alter just kinda how I thought about things that you wanna make full commitment to your your wife, your children your job. And it created a probably a five year effort to say, here's the characteristics that describe me principles or priorities. If you will then inform principles that then inform my priorities. And it was a good experience of not had a similar health problem since I'm much more diligent and exercising. I I probably should be like you and drink more protein, shakes and less hamburgers. But you know, life's a progression. So I'm not quite there. There yet Marty? Yeah. I have an issue. I'm a little bit neurotic about all those things brother, but you are doing. Well, you look great. You know, you noted a moment ago all of those things in the what's next question like the pending television negotiations and all of those things I can't imagine the quantity of challenges on your desk. But what would you say are the greatest challenges that you face his SEC Commissioner, well, if I could just reduce a one actually have five pages of like revolving priorities that I review and things move on and off it just quickly one is the amount of transition. We've had leadership roles we have great leaders on our campuses. My predecessors had the benefit of really stable leadership at the presidential level, and the athletic director level, you know, we have athletic directors who served for fifteen twenty twenty five years. And those life cycles have shortened. So that causes the need to reinforce why we made certain decisions reinforce a culture of collegiality. That's worked really well, even in a very competitive situation. And I placed that one actually at the top of the priorities because for any organization to thrive there has to be cohesion and collaboration among its leadership to make that work, and we're reinforcing that on a regular basis and I'm grateful for the infusion of new thinking new thoughts and new perspectives. And also that those have those individuals have embraced the culture and being part of the southeastern conference in such a unique way. So so that's one, you know, the changing media environment. I put two or maybe one a we have great agreements with CBS in ESPN, and then the SEC ESPN network, they work really, well, but none of us can be blind. To the fact that media's changing all around us, you know, like you, and I are doing a radio interview. We're we're doing a podcast well five years ago, there were some of those things, but we've seen that aspect of media mushroom where you can go to deliver specific content. The people what does that mean for the future? How do we adapt? How can we make our are televised contests more interactive? How can we provide programming that attracts people in and it may be a more niche driven? But there are a lot of people that wanna see certain aspects of college sports in different angles, including behind the scenes, so that's second. The the the litigation issue is real. And I never want to overstate that. But we may have to adjust. And it's a it's a reality around college sports. We think we do things incredibly. Well. I I watch right now. Young people. Who are have finished their careers at our schools, are perhaps pursuing NFL careers or even some who've decided to transfer and over and over on their social media. They're making these statements about how great their experience was at their SEC university. We have to keep that at the forefront of what we do. And we wanna be all tra- competitive. We've got some of these pressures here, but fundamentally when you get through pay culture, you get through media get through litigation you always come back to say the support and experience provided door student athletes in this league has risen to a point where it is second to non where if you want to challenge yourself competitively and be supported in a marvelous fashion, we can do that in the southeastern conference, and that's not really a challenge that's a reality and something that we should embrace. So those are four quick issues that are are kind of top of mind and almost daily circumstance much of it though, being very good. Because we're doing things really well and the SEC. So there are a couple of questions I'd like to to hit you with on issues and collegiate athletics right now that are that are kind of overarching not just in the southeastern conference, but nationwide and one of those narratives right now is about player compensation. Some folks feel like amateur players at the collegiate level deserve to be compensated. It's a very complicated issue. Greg very complicated. What are the variables involved that make that difficult from your perspective? Well, there's there's some realities which is the the revenue has increased significantly over the last fifteen to twenty years the compensation provided to individuals, particularly coaches generates a lot of headlines in that creates some perceptions you see at our level full stadiums full arenas full baseball stadiums. And we have. We had the issue introduced both both by student athletes. Current and former and through some of the litigation efforts going back to the O'Bannon lawsuit. Obama versus the NCAA. So those put those those rallies put the issues on the agenda on the other side. I think we in the college athletics have done a poor job communicating about how well supported student athletes are in their endeavors. So these these compensation issues may lead the headlines. What's what's not seen as this vacant support structure that's built into each of our athletics programs? Be it academic support medical support nutritional support or the new manifestation, psychological, mental health support for student athletes. I have been clear that I believe the compensation the really the financial support provided the student athletes should. Be tied directly to their educational pursuits and their competitive endeavors, and that's the appropriate level. We moved to cost of attendance my first year as Commissioner as part of scholarship. So there's more to help student athletes meet their needs as students that's provided through their financial support. I think that is is where the limit is. There are there aspects of travel their unique here in we don't exist as a professional league in we shouldn't exist as a professionally. We wouldn't do that very well compared to the NFL or NBA what we do. Well, is we educate seen by over twenty graduate patches on Alabama football players playing in that national championship game. And that's model throughout this league. I don't want to sacrifice the educational endeavor for expansion further of the commercial endeavour around college athletics. Already challenged with that now, and we have. Responsibility to keep that narrow so that young people have four or five year experience to pursue their education and also to succeed competitively. What an answer. Wow. I appreciate your candor. That was great. And you know, what Marty people disagree with that? In the beauty of this is we ought to be in in dialogue. We should share our perspectives. And opinions I have respect for those who do things differently. I seek to understand before I'm trying to be understood. But at the same time in college sports, we should never lose direct attachment to the educational mission. Over universities. That's been a challenge for a hundred years. It'll be a challenge for the next hundred years yet, we do we do support young people incredibly well in the southeastern conference. I just I go round and round and round about that particular issue, and we don't need to get off in a rabbit hole. But in my mind like in my in, my heart. I say, no, they shouldn't be paid. But I'm also not them, right? Like, I'm not those men who were out there playing ball and getting this education and all these things in their coach is making. Seven and a half million dollars in these stadiums or full because their names on the back of that jersey. So I really do see both sides. A couple more things, and I'll get you out of here brother, another thing that we continually hear especially in this past month is the whole playoff expansion narrative. It's an ad nauseam. Everybody has an opinion. What is your position on college football playoff expansion? My position is that the expansion of the national championship competition from two hundred the old BCS format to four under the college football playoff format has worked very well. It worked well this year, and it can continue to work well in the future. And that's where my focus in support is might the current system be improved in different ways. I it may. But I'm not an advocate for expanding beyond for. And I'm one who suggests that any of that consideration. It should be a very deliberate. If you look at the expansion from two to four that was a ten. Year process, and I wouldn't wouldn't I'm not one who is inclined to open the door, but every year apart of our responsibilities. Commissioners is to look at what happens in the playoff and make sure we're meeting our original objectives, which I'm one who thinks we're doing and doing very well. I'm with you. I like four very much if we also understand that I jumped in there just to follow up. I went to seven bowl games. And I started with a six and six Vanderbilt team playing on on ESPN and the textile and Thursday night that was an important opportunity for that team. I went to the Capital One bowl and watch the Kentucky team that hadn't played in that bowl reach ten win season for the first time since the seventies that was an important opportunity for that team in a whole lot of things in between that are are part of this ecosystem, which doesn't include the fourteen playoff. Couple more promise on. I'll know you. Your life to worry about. I saw on your social accounts a photo of a neon sign. That's that states. Do something. Great to brag a minute. I what do you feel like you've done? That's great during your time as Commissioner. Oh, wow. I I think there's a lot one time. I put together a sheet. So I'm gonna put it the top couple of things we've done around student at between created a football student athlete leadership council men's basketball student athlete leadership council and a women's basketball student athlete leadership council. These are highly recruited scholarship student athletes that were missing in the traditional student athlete advisory committee work and to be able to bring those individuals in to identify some issues to engage them in deep dialogue about what's happening around their experience on our campuses. They're experienced around conference or national championships. And what they see for themselves is at the high of the meaningless right behind that. We created a student athlete career tour. It's happened. Every December for the last three years where we bring in about twenty eight student athletes, and they've been the Delta Airlines that happens in Atlanta around our or football champion. Ship game. We brought him. Delta Airlines Chick-fil-A UPS Atlanta Hawks. The Atlanta Braves any number of others to to say, look, you're about to go through transition from being a student and an athlete into a career. We wanna help facilitate that and we've had people young people have jobs out of those encounters as as our career or they've had career opportunities. And we're actually trying to figure out how to multiply that that that opportunity that career tour, you know, around officiating my first year we were talking about hey, could you centralize replay? So we have more correct outcomes. I think what we've done in football has helped improve our officiating. Not that. It's perfect. But that was a monumental and a resource commitment of great importance. We've done the same in men's basketball, the continued competitive success. We went five national championship. Chips last academic year. We finished eleven or set in second place on eleven different occasions some of those SEC teams, but the ability to actually elevate our sustained competitive success even over the last decade is an important point of pride the SEC graduate. Patch Marty is one where we were trying to figure out how do you convey that were educating young people, and it was a lot of work. And actually the folks at the university of Arkansas helped us with the final design where when you graduate, and you continue competing you get to wear that emblem on your on your jersey on your uniform what I never anticipated was how much that would mean to a student athlete who gets to put that patch on after three and a half four years of higher education and then walk out onto the field. The track the court the baseball diamond the softball diamond with a patch. It says there graduate I've watched. So so. Media feeds from student athletes, showing incredible emotion and even more emotion than when they actually received the diploma that they get to walk out with that designation. And what what you hear is? There's been a lot of student athlete focused work that we've done while sustaining competitive success that that ranks among the compliments of significance. And I'll say they last for this because I could give you a thirty minute podcast on everything just on accomplishments and progress, I'm really proud of our staff of the people that I work within this office and their engagement, and dedication, you know, all of these things don't happen by themselves. So I can come up with an idea and have some help and figuring out whether it's a good idea or not and then people have to carry forward, implement, those ideas. And whether it's the just means more campaign that you see on our advertising around. Our venues or maybe a little thing like that graduate, Pat, the patch the execution of our staff makes that possible. Last thing you are in one of the most prestigious most important most scrutinized leadership positions in sports. What makes it good later someone who's prepared not fully, but fully prepared to take on the issues of the day. And that requires a commitment to lifelong learning in education. No matter your position or your age. There is a humility that must be present that acknowledges, I know a lot. But I don't know everything. So I'm going to have to rely on the people around me the ability to block out, the noise, and the critics and focus on what you believe is a leader our priorities and the principles that informed decision making and you have to make decisions and and live with those outcomes and be fully prepared to live with those outcomes. I've had the opportunity to learn from a number of great leaders. Whether it's an interpersonal relations. Ships or through different learning, whether it'd be reading or studying those individuals, and in each I think show those characteristics of humility engagement in lifelong learning the ability withstand the pressure and the ability is still defined space and time to enjoy the outcomes of that leadership work. Well, you've done a tremendous job the proofs and put in as we say down south, man. I can't thank you enough for your time for your insight, and it's been such great joy to spend this time with you fellowship in man. Thank you. Thank you. And part of all of it is, you know, I put on a pair of jeans and pulled on a ball cap and go to a dirt track and watch car racing for a few hours every summer. That's that's one of those enjoyable aspects as well that keeps it centered. It was wonderful to be with you at the dirt track. I could tell that you were in your element. And you were at home, and you could not. I don't think we could wipe the smile off your face with a pressure washer. That was fun. It was fun to see that was that was good good. Good evening. Thank you. When you guys told you you would be fascinated. I'm I'm fascinated. I want I just want to make sure you guys understand when I chatted with Greg. It was eleven o'clock in the morning eleven AM to about eleven thirty or so something like that. And as you heard him say he had already had four extensive conversations with various athletic directors within his conference about pressing issues within the conference or within their respective programs before eleven o'clock, he's had four in-depth conversations mardi you're forgetting something that C officer in central time zone. So it's only ten AM for him. That's a very good point. That's a very good point Travis various studio that Buckeye education coming through right there. Somebody came to somebody's not partly cloudy this morning. Some of us may be otherwise. But what unique perspective on what he faces every single day. And I appreciate it. His candor about those issues that are pressing whether that's evolving media that CBS deal that he was discussing. It's up in twenty twenty three is going to be the most coveted collegiate property maybe ever that SEC number one game of the week is a gold mine. And so that negotiation is going to be very interesting to see how that unfolds, and of course, it's been a staple on CBS for so many years from uncle Vern, and Gary to now Brad Mesler, they do such a great job. And it is a staple of collegiate experience. It always has a big game feel and think about it that three thirty window and SEC that's a standalone game. There are no other games on on the games early or there at night at three thirty window. That's one game all the eyeballs and the. South are on that game. It just feels important. Right. You know, having grown up in the south it just that game. Just feels important. Am I wrong? I mean, look man, your your a midwestern kid you went to Ohio State. You're a big team guy to the hill. But am I wrong that that particular game just feel so important? I hate to admit it. But you're right as much as I hate that slogan. It just means more. They're not wrong. I got a little taste of it this past year going down there LSU, and it really does mean more to them. If I would have had forty five minutes if I would have had forty five minutes with with Greg. I was going to ask him who came up with it just means more. I'd love to know who who said that comment. Maybe that'll be our follow up conversation. We'll get into that. But just a fascinating conversation and someone admire in so many ways because I couldn't do it. I couldn't have all of that on my desk every single day in every single minute with. So many people counting on your leadership. And so many every move you make be having such tremendous aftereffects. And I'm not misinterpreting what I heard he unequivocally doesn't feel like collegiate athletes should be paid in a different structure than they are right now. Right. That's what I heard corrected mince any words, and I meant what I said aftermath of his commentary. I I really see both sides. There's a very distinct feeling that comes with college football and college basketball, specifically that it feels it just it is a business, but it doesn't feel like one in a lot of ways. And I think it's a separating factor. And I liked that feeling but I'm a forty two year old guy who benefits from that? Right. I have my career because of that I'm not Zaylon Williamson or Christian Wilkins or Trevor Lawrence. It's or to a tongue of I lo- or any number of hundreds hundreds of players. So in forget hundreds. I mean, you got to think about I mean, you heard Greg mentioned, Ed O'Bannon. I mean, this thing this goes way way back when you think about Jalen rose when we we had Jalen was our second wasn't. He the second podcast Travis. So I think he was the second podcast, and you go all the way back to Jalen and Chris Webber being overseas when they were on the fab five and seeing their jerseys or whatnot. They're memorabilia hanging in the window and going, wait a minute. Somebody's making money off of this in Amy. And so a genuinely see both sides in a very complicated issue. Some people are are extremely many people are extreme on either side of the issue. Maybe I'm maybe I'm boring. I'm living on the fence on that one. And mardi. You have a different perspective. You get to know these athletes on a little more personal level than the fans. Do just watching on TV. So you see what they go through? And what their life is like an understand why they want to get paid. Absolutely. That's why again, this is a whole other rabbit hole. But these young men that sit out of these bowl games. Good for you that I would I would if I'm the Andre Baker. Or if I'm Lynn or for net, or if I'm Christian McCaffrey, you bet your ass. I'm sitting out think about we'll we had him on the podcast is a wife and a daughter think about so one bowl game was that one bowl game really gonna do for him and his career was the planning going to propel him any further up in the draft. But an injury could have heard even worse. I'm so glad I'm so glad for Jalen Smith that he has had such a tremendous career. I'm so happy that the Cowboys waited on him that they did take a chance they took a chance and drafted this amazing player from Notre Dame who against your buckeyes headache catastrophic injury. And the Cowboys waited on him, and he is a phenomenal football player. And I'm glad that that worked out for. But that was the moment that was the line of demarcation right there. Jalen Smith where these. Guys went wait a minute and their agents bright who their their potential representation. Wait a minute. I don't know if we should be playing in his game or not and when Leonard and Christian made the decision to sit I think it just changed. It changed everything. All right. We're wait. We're way off the reservation now, but thanks so much to to Greg Sankey SEC Commissioner for his tremendous insight. I'm better for it. And I'm certainly smarter for it. Thing about this. He's talking about not wanting to be the guy to replace the guy. Commissioners think he had that role. He had to go in there and fill the void and replace Commissioner. Mike's live who was a huge influence in the college world just that name. I mean, just that name, right. Like, Mike slab mean that name is synonymous with intercollegiate athletic excellence. And you're right. Thank you had to come in and follow that. But. No pressure at all in man. He has thrived. He has done. Just such a tremendous job in a hard job. So as you guys know always intrigued by Twitter, and I just think that it can be the greatest of mediums and the most amazing things can happen. And I also think that it is a cesspool of hatred. I saw the most interesting thing. So I can put video up of Trevor Lawrence throwing sixty two yard touchdown pass. Whatever the number was two Justin Ross or I can put up a video I can be standing on the sideline right beside Daboh Sweeney. When he's going crazy when they have a pick six on the third play of the national championship game. I could put those videos up, and they'll do thirty forty fifty thousand views whatever I can be standing in that exact same spot and post a video randomly just thought. It was interesting the way that the moment unfolded where a young lady runs out on the field to protest something or other and the enforcement law enforcement folks, take her off, and I just happened to be standing right by the path through which they took her and it did how many of us now Travis. One point something million. I think honestly gonna be check. And that's just from my feet. Who knows what it's done from other ones. There was another Twitter account. That's still the video posted as if it was there's an a five hundred thousand sewn just on that one. Yeah. Right. And I don't even know what mine is I know it's more than a million. I'm probably it was a million before I left the stadium. The other night, you have one point two million. Okay. So you're looking at one point seven at least one point seven from my feet, and then whomever, this other feed was that took it and. That's I mean, it just is there something weird about that. Like what what is that traps? Explain that to me, I like to believe she was protesting that a high state should have been the college football playoffs. Works for me brother at a work for me. I guess I can get behind that spoken like a scarlet and gray son of the Buckeye nation. Thank you guys so much for hanging out what an awesome opportunity to interview SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey, again appreciate his inside in his time. I learned so much. I'm appreciative of Travis scheduling that interview with the Commissioner so preciado of Louise being crazy enough to let us do it.

"The Marty Smith's America podcast is presented by T, so official watch of the NBA shop at US not T so shop dot com. Welcome to the martyr swissamerica podcast, all you, five and icon legend in the sports broadcasting arena on the program this week. And I'm thrilled and humbled that he took the time to do it Brent Musburger who, like me is the sports soundtrack of many of those of you listening, your life and certainly your youth. I can remember sitting on the couch with my daddy as young man as a boy, sitting there with dad, and watching the NFL today on CBS with Musburger, and Jimmy the Greek and Irv cross and all of those folks and back then there weren't all of the channels in, in from which to gain your sporting knowledge. Whether that's news highlights whatnot new stories and back then there was. Just that show. And there was no sportscenter yet. And there was no ESPN yet, and all those things it didn't it didn't exist in his certainly social media. And so those guys just became we welcome them into our homes. They became almost family members with what they gave us from an entertainment, and news perspective. And I have been in the last couple of weeks. Binge watching sports history, documentaries, thirty for thirty s and a football life on NFL network. I really liked those a lot rewatch the cinema movie which if you guys haven't seen it, please go find it, it might be the greatest movie I've ever seen. And you know we just a couple of weeks ago on here talked about that. Hurley Haywood movie with Patrick Dempsey, all those things. I've been watching them a lot and I just don't watch live TV anymore. I don't know why I just don't I would rather sit down and read a book or certainly spent time with my. Children outside, then I would to sit in front of the television. But when I am really immersing myself in history, and the icons of yesteryear that really shaped my life, and that kind of storytelling in any way, as watch these movies, I've noticed that Brent Musburger is in damn near every one of them, whether it was calling Lakers, Celtics or sitting alongside, you know, as I stated Irv cross, and Jimmy the Greek and those folks on NFL today man, he was there for most of them. And I'll tell you I will never forget standing on the hill above the backstretch at New Hampshire international raceway in two thousand seven and I'm standing there nervous, as all nervous as hail. I, I was so nervous because I was actually on the pre race. The NASCAR countdown pre race program to report some news story, or give insight into some news story that was breaking in the sport of the time. And at that time bridge. Rent was the host of our NASCAR countdown show. And so I'm staying on this hill with this camera in my face. My heart is beating out of my chest. Because Brent Musburger is about the toss it to me on live, national television. And I could not believe that Brent Musburger was about the talk to me on TV and I remember talking to my daddy after. And he could not believe that Brent Musburger actually said my name said it on TV pretty damn cool. And just that guy if it was an important sporting moment since nineteen seventy five he probably called it, other than, of course, the miracle on ice, which was Al Michaels, and we all know, we've heard that the you believe in miracles a trillion times in our lives. But man, Brent was the voice, he was the soundtrack of so many of those iconic moments so to get to spend this time with him, was very, very special for me. And you're gonna. Learn a lot about his path. I certainly did. But before we get to Brent, I want to just discuss hiring with you guys because hiring can be really challenging, but there's one place you can go where hiring is not challenging.

Why ZipRecruiter dot com slash mardi. Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire very few minds or smarter about the history of sport than Brent Musburger. Why because Brent lived it and man, it was so cool, spent thirty thirty five minutes with him here is my conversation on the Marty Smith's America podcast with legendary sports broadcaster, Brent Musburger. Man. It's such a pleasure to welcome to the Marty Smith's America podcast, a legend among legends in the sports broadcasting realm, Brent Musburger, who, if it's been a huge moment in sports in the last thirty five or forty years, even man, he was he was either there or he called it. And so it's just amazing to, to spend this time with you, sir. And I always like to discuss what people helped you and were influential in your journey. And you've had such an amazing journey who were a couple of those people that were real spearheads that believed in you, in a neighborhood, you to have that career, you know, more luck and timing played an incredible of role in my in my journey, when I was a newspaper man in Chicago, the CBS radio station, a transfer from all talk. Over to who's an information and the sports cast or at the time fellow of the name of Rick Weaver was very uncomfortable doing the two minute news updates and he wanted badly to return to play by play and talk radio. So he caught on as the voice of the Miami Dolphins when the NFL expanded down to Miami, and the radio station of general manager about Bill O Donnell at hurt me, simply as a guest of Hugh times. He called me over. I was a columnist at the time that this was American and he, he offered me a job, which paid me considerably more than I was making the newspaper and I had a family started at the time, and I wanted to buy a house, suburban Chicago. So I told him. Yes, I think I could do that. But I opened whose paper at least Bizet, and I went over to the managing editor, and he couldn't believe that I was willing to give up a newspaper column to return and become a radio broadcaster full-time. And when he didn't offer me a dime more. I said, look, it's been great. I've enjoyed it. Thank you very much, but I'm going to radio. So I made the transition over the radio and about the same time the news blocks on the stations the local stations start to expand because there was no ESPN. There was no cable. There was no place to go for the sports information, especially locally. So the TV station was located the same radio and they asked me, who kinda commentary of for us. We we'd like to see and, and we'd like to think about using you as a commentator. And so I being a newspaper man, I do that. Well controversy more her hair. So I taped about a minute and a half as I recalled a commentary suggesting that the Chicago Blackhawks Detroit either Bobby Hall, or stand Akita and around that on a Sunday evening, and it broke the all time negative phone list, down below at the television station. So that first part of the week the general man. Major call you want to be full time because because of the response, he got out of it, and I said, listen, I'm not going to suggest that the cubs trade, either Arnie banks around Santo, or go from there. So the mindful that that was a one time, only Bobby homes, damaged heathen. I laughed about it for years to come. They went on to win the Stanley Cup together. And obviously, the Blackhawks didn't trade either one even though Bobby later wound up playing for the Winnipeg Jets in the in the rival Hockey League that, that started up. But when I was with the television station, fulltime general manager by the name of Bob Wessler was moved by CVS to New York to head up the sports division. And that's when Bob decided that we needed a live pregame show, which led to the NFL today. So all of those stops along the line, but I'm already a lot of a lot of young people asked me, you know, how, how do I become a sports catch? What do I do? And going hard for me because I was in the right place at the right time. And I attribute any. Great intellect. I just think that I was very very fortunate. When I got the opportunities along the way, I knew that I had this opportunity and I made the most of it during the time. So it's very difficult. When I started out there, we're not a lot of sports catchers. Like I said earlier, that was no ESPN. There were none of the cable outlets, and so you really relied on the local television stations, but it's been a it's been a wonderful journey as it began. I fell under the influence of, of people like Harry Carey not always good, because Harry, and I would drink tonight at the night away, sometimes, but, but he was one of the great characters that I was around been Scully. I was fortunate enough to work with him, dick Enberg o- on the way all these guys that I knew. And it was a great era, to, to be sportscaster, growing up. And that's just a long way of saying, a whole lot of people entered into this, and I was very fortuitous and. I loved I loved every minute of it. I can relate. I'm very similar story. I'm a newspaper man as well. Studied print journalism in college was a newspaper writer out of college. And then this new thing happened called the internet. And I became a writer on an internet site and on and on. And then out of nowhere ESPN called one day, people believed in me and believed in my passion and my pro-choice, and I've been so blessed by that. So I have I can relate to what you're saying. Now, I want to go back to Harry Carey just a minute. What the hell is it like drinking beers with Harry that must be the greatest time a man can have? You got that, right. Marlena for like never had to pay for it. Every was really extremely generous and keeps loved me the up at that time because I was doing the ten o'clock Ripley central time zone. And so the news block would come up at ten o'clock in New York, of course east coast. The local news comes on eleven but it was ten o'clock in Chicago and the lights at the time. So his games were. And so he would he had a place called Tommy O'Leary's that I would walk down to, and he would drop by a he was already holding court. Harry Carey restaurant had not yet started up. So he used liberties basically as a base. And, and it was it was wonderful to watch. I learned a great lesson from Harrier that is when a person comes up to you in a in a setting like that designed, I graph you talked to he would he would stand there at the bar and sign. In every napkin and every Cup program. People in the world was hanging out, and then they would leave him alone and other announcers, and how I and we shared anecdotes, and I just love sitting there and listening to attack. Harry Carey, I, I, I will never, I will never forget the evening, somehow we got on the more of a topic of passing away airy set to the group. Now listen now, listen. Don't you any of you any of you ever allow them to cremate me because all burn for fifty years? And of course after laughs and always other around it was it was awesome to be around, Harry, he, he actually tried that hire me to come into his, his relief announcer with the cubs at WGN to work middle two or three innings, I own ously. I hesitated before. I. No may cave me a few nights sleepless nights one of the great characters of all time. And in that particular era baseball announcers, where the top of the sports announcing food chain, that's no longer the, the situation television, especially football has replaced baseball as the as the number one, go to sport for majority of the American population. But back in that day when I started out baseball was number one in Harry Carey was clearly the king in Chicago. Why did you say no? You know, I know I'm not quite I think I loved. I loved CBS. Was don't give about CBS at the time of the NFL today had started up urban and Phillips, and Jimmy the Greek were were great friends online. So I just thought no let me stick with what I'm doing. They've given me this great opportunity, and, and I did I had long meetings with the. There were a couple of times when I almost left CVS, the other one was ruined Arledge came and wanted to hire me one so the Howard goes so role on Monday night football. And that again lead simply plus nights on my part. I came I came very close. A ruined probably would have said yes to the ABC offer knowing how controversial I was about to become if I stepped into that because I knew what wanted we talked about it for a long, long time. Frank Gifford was the play by play man. And they, they wanted a little more vinegar to go in there with the all time good guy Frank, and then they would have had an athlete. I don't know that was at the time would have been would've back to the three-man booths. And now Rune flew off to an affiliate meeting in Hawaii. When I called back and I would I was all prepared to tell him. Yes. And then I couldn't reach you in airplane. It by the time he arrived over a hollow. I had a change of heart and decided to, to stay at CBS at no time in either of those that I go back and ask for more money or try to negotiate, they were both. Great offers and I gave them both serious, serious consideration. Wow. Isn't that amazing having earlier your path might have been completely different to Lutely? Absolutely you. You've noted the NFL today a couple of times and, and as a little, little guy, a little Tyke. I can remember watching it with my daddy, every Sunday. And he was it's this titan. It's this institution. That is in terms of sports broadcasting. It was the it was the example by which all that became the NFL pregame shows was founded. So it had to have changed your life dramatically. How did it change? Oh, absolutely. Well, first of all. It made me it made me completely. I mean, you know, first of all you came in with the last name Musburger, I didn't change it back in back in my day. A lot of announcers on television, actually changed their last name. For example, Jim McKay was actually Jimmy McManus. And he had already changed his last name. So there was this unusual last name along or last name then broadcast personalities used, and it became known strictly through the NFL today. I was simply an unknown commodity out of the city of Chicago. And so the, the NFL today is responsible for, for every bit of my career. Once I moved to the network level in New York. I mean that's the show that gave me a presence and, and then people knew who I was because of the NFL today, and it was as you say, it's at the standard because we were I and it was Bob west sorts. To go live and have live halftime and post game shows at the time because and then particular time Pete Roselle Commissioner with I was already very, very friendly, with, because he'd been a PR man with the Los Angeles Rams and everything back in the day before he became Commissioner back in that day, the NFL, made sure that the networks works really profitable of regarding their coverage on Sunday, especially CBS. That's how Roselle cut the contract with the with the networks after the prices soared for the individual franchises in the NFL that change completely the, the team owners wanted to milk, every dollar. They could out of television simply because of their costs. So the networks had to move at a different direction to get back what they were paying for this great programming. And so they expanded. Yeah. Fell today was a half hour Sunday as you know. And now I think goodness say they won't upwards of two hours because. They need that commercial revenue to, to pay for what they what they're paying the National Football League. ESPN obviously doesn't have Sunday games, but they have an extensive pre-game show because they need that revenue to, to pay the league what they owe for their rights to to Monday night football. So became more of a money game after that. I I've always thought that we had an advantage only going thirty minutes, let the problems which the Greek and Phillips, because both wanted airtime during the thirty minutes, but you could be, I think more suspect, you could you could offer stories of people were interested in a rather than just sorta droning on and on. Which is sometimes the case, because you don't have that much to go on with the games having not started yet on a Sunday. When you run the long long pregame shows, but it strictly related to money and, and nothing else what change. But during the, the NFL today it was the Grossberg. For the for the National Football League. That's what they, they took over clearly is number one when it came to the hearts and minds of the American sports fan for us. It was great being a part of it. And having this show go live, and I loved loved every minute of the of the NFL today. When CBS fired me nineteen ninety that particular full, I'll never forget the first out of the rancid, Montana. I couldn't even turn on the television set. I just walked kind of round out in the fields and went out and made friends with a couple of horses out there and talk to them. It was such a withdrawal for me, because I missed I missed the action on that on that for Sunday. Probably probably I'm not an unhappy person. I've, I've an optimistic person that was probably the toughest day of my broadcast life was not being on the air, and that fall of nineteen ninety. On that opening Sunday of the national football because I loved, I loved every money every even even the controversy that erupted, which omitted rake and, and things like that. I loved every minute of the NFL today, it was it was great. Yeah. Whatever I was able to accomplish broadcast, and it's a result of the NFL. I don't think it's any question about that. You noted that your surname suddenly becomes one of the most recognizable in entertainment. And so you got famous. I mean you there wasn't Twitter there wasn't the internet? There weren't all of these countless myriad outlets to consume sports news or entertainment, there was you guys. So I you guys became really famous. How'd you manage fame money? It's kind of interesting. I never let it affect me one way or the other. I think sometimes we go out to dinner and my wife was bothered more than me, people would come up and. Trude at the table. And, and so I guess, I guess the most valuable lesson that I took from those days with Harry Carey is that when you're out in a in a public situation, you, you belong to the public because that's who made you what you are responsible for, for whatever riches and fame that you have. And so that you, you owe to be nice back to the public. And if you and if you wanna scape that you simply go home and read a book or talk to the family, and voided, I, always, I always had that I, I knew when I could be real real private. It's just go home to Arlene. And I I was very fortunate. You know, we've been married now fifty seven years ahead, the two boys and always had nice homes for two and always enjoyed. So I knew I knew how to find my privacy. But when I would go out public restaurant or wherever airports, whatever. Nobody wanted to come up until I knew that everybody I knew that Akron had their own team. And they had their own and about sports. It's a point. And, and I was always kind of interesting, what people had to say because I knew that they also knew more entertaining than I did. I didn't know as much about all the teams as, as they did about their individual team. I knew a little bit about every team, but I always I always kinda kept my ears open as I traveled through this and, and I learned a lot. I learned a lot from the folks out there, but I never you know, I wasn't why I got into the business to become famous. I love sports. I was not a good enough athlete. I would have preferred to a played, I would have preferred a major league baseball player, but I was never never going to be that good at any particular sport. But I always knew even when I was six years old. Rounded, because I enjoyed the rhythm of it, I enjoyed the competency, the now I love to in my spare time as I have done the last couple of weeks. I love the National Hockey League playoffs in the NBA playoffs. And I watch I watch every night and marvel at the at the athlete's ability that's out there. And, you know the Indianapolis five hundred is is coming up. I've been interested in how they're pushing and I'll be watching the race on on Sunday and seeing how they do. So if it's if it's competition, I just enjoy it. That's, that's the rhythm of my life, who is your favorite athlete to cover whom you got to know personally. Well, it became characters after a while probably the most important to me was probably Mohammed Ali simply because where the radio station I. One thing that I had done for them as a newspaper and I had gone down and gotten more those interviews with Mohammed all eight. Now, an interview Muhammed all the back in the day was basically asked a question and get out of the way he would take it from there. He was he was the ultimate show. When are we go down to his house on the south side of Chicago? He had converted. He had become a Muslim at the time and you would go into his house, I knew the bodyguards would be in there. I knew they would be standing at the end of the whole their suit, jackets covering up. They were both packing every day, but then they would let you go in, because Muhammad view from being on the air, and in Chicago, and he loved to entertain. So he was certainly he was an important car and in my success because of the interviews that I would get from just showing up for the tape recorder land with a camera down probably the fellow that I. Really got to enjoy how go, thanks because he too was such a an easy interview. I love this optimism. I loved his smile, the people in Chicago loved him. The manager of this time was how Lopez, and he was such a gentleman. And when I traveled with them, he taught me basically all about baseball, he'd been a hall of fame catcher in his playing day before it could get managed or the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox. Those people were were important to me, because of their availability, whenever I needed an interview, but there were so many and then, and then later, I developed a very close relationship with Pete Rose sort of an unusual way because he had come in as a player, he was an expert during the World Series and the NFL today. And the next week should be the Greek was taken ill and we all knew that P like to take a position of football drawn games. And we've. Brought him in it handicap games, and even now, clause Vegas. When I run into Pete after one of his autograph sessions, you remind me that it was a better handicap than than Jimmy the Greek. So, so it goes it goes on. And on my day, the one difference and is that we were much closer to the athletes that than the BDO folks are today after a baseball game. For example, I might go out drinking with a young. Dave. The butcher was a rookie pitcher with the Chicago White Sox. But we wouldn't know more about of writing about divorce are having maybe one, too many beer, and then getting back peers and they're getting back to the hotel room because it wasn't due to start pitching for another couple of days. Those things we, we were friends have relates back in the day. Yes. Sometimes we have to criticize them, but, but dick young the new York Daily News talk me that when you criticize an athlete, the one thing that you must do if show up the next day you. Walk in there and you give him a chance to disagree with you. And I learned that lesson and whenever I criticize an athlete, I was always there. You wanna talk to come on, and we had, we had a much better relationship than than the media does today. You know if an athlete went into a bar in my time, there was no cell phone picture of him. Nobody was going to send out over Twitter. It's a lack of privacy for, for an athlete today. I'm sure it has made it very, very tough on on some of these fellows. So it was an entirely different time. What impact does the loosening of sports gambling, and it becoming more accepted have on Pete Rose's opportunity to be a hall of Famer Brent? You know, mardi it's, it's a very good question, given it I've given a lot thought. The, the problem the problem with me is that I've thought all wound problem in my point of view is that I have. Felt all pretty blooms in the hall of fame and I have said at the bottom of the plaque it should say that he was suspended in whatever year for gambling on baseball. I don't think I don't think we should ignore this. I think is a vital part of the of the narrative about the game and, and certainly about about Pete Rose it, obviously down the road has has to help him in some regard. There's going to be some powerbroker who's going to agree not agree with me, but he's gonna come to the same conclusion that this guy belongs. But we should not ignore. What happened to him in the end? And so, I think it will come to pass due. I think it is close. I don't get as close at all. But I think it will happen someday. There's another fellow who, who certainly belongs in the hall of fame also in my mind, and that's Barry Bonds. I was around I was around Perry's father, Bobby bonds, quite a bit, and Bobby wound up having problems with alcohol. And so then he had to go to rehab took the cure came back and was clean and was able to go on with his career and his son before he got into whatever anabolic steroids. He he was involved with was a tremendous athlete for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Everybody remembers berry with the San Francisco forty Niners as well. They should. Because that's what the homerun prowess came to the forefront. But it it's hard to know more now. Whether or not we have an entire wing in the hall of fame, or the you people tend to forget that what Mark McGwire and Sammy, Sosa with that one year helped bring baseball back and both probably. Yeah. Yes. Baseball back with that great home run. Chase that they had. So, so all of those are controversies that will let the baseball people sort out, but beyond a shadow of a doubt Pete Rose belongs in the hall of fame. Let's stay on that topic because it's what you do now out in Vegas. Of course, you do such a great job out there with, with the program, you guys do focusing on betting, and making sure people are making the right bits and, and taking care of their paper. What do you think is the greater broader stroke impact? Brent of people accepting sports gambling more readily today, you know. It's hard to put your arms around one reason, mardi, first of all, I think there has to be a concern and care. I have said, all, even though I'm in favor of legalizing it because when it was illegal people were doing it anyway. And so, I believe that it should be carefully watched but not everybody should jump into it. And I hope that youngsters don't think it's easy because it's not in a game. I football for example, is a Greek always told me the football is not rounds and they get those crazy bounces things like that. I'll be asleep a gambling in particular had had a huge part in the in the rise of the National Football League point spreads. That was a stroke of genius by the bookmakers, who came up with that. Because if you were just picking winners on sided. But when you add, the element of the of the points British like that element of weights to jockey over twice. It's it's a lot. It's something that I've always been interested in, if fascinates me, I don't how difficult it is to win on a on a regular basis it fuels and I in the games, I think white now the media, the media has jumped on it because it was a forbidden fruit. And suddenly, it's legal and I think I think. Going to become more like Europe. It's there, but you don't pay that much attention to it to be perfectly honest, when you go over last year, for example, I was in London with the with raider for football game. So I made it a point to go into the various bet shops. I haven't been in London as often as I was I do that. That's basically every street corner. You've got two or three of the competing bet shops, and quiet there. There's certainly not as laborat- as, as our sports, which are the United States and. You know, people are not thinking about the Premier League in terms of gambling twenty four seven and I think it'll settle into that rhythm of the United States and just become part of it. If you wanna if you wanna take a position on the Toronto Raptors in the Milwaukee Bucks when they go back up to Toronto. Raptors looking to close it out and they will be slight favorite in that game. If you want the money line, or you want to give the more it's going yet, but you can sit there and enjoy that game without having without having wage around to. I mean, that's when we will see what kind of a rhythm, it's settles into over people in particular years Gulf, they like to bed during the turn amount as it's unfolding. They'll see particular player that they want that on, or they want to bet against someone in the United States, people are opinionated before this team is going to win. So hey, I I'm not quite. Sure that in came wagering is going, go to the extent that it has over in Europe. There's a lot of time or in a soccer match of the Premier League when you can make different wager. When you're watching in particular a basketball game, it's very hard Tibet in game because things move so quickly and fast now during that period, the bookmakers don't have as much time either. So somebody wish are about numbers and has an idea can can move quickly and, and make a bet. But I, I'd like to repeat, it's not it's not for everybody, not every youngster should think that he can retire because sports better, and I don't think you have to bet to enjoy, by the way. But I do think that because it exists, and because so much money has been involved that we need to have it legalized, and, and we need to watch over politics, the problem with the politicians as they want the tax revenue. And if you look at the books out of Nevada, it doesn't generate nearly as much revenue for the state as say slot machines. That's the that's the profits when or the in the state of Nevada, if a book makes four or five percent, and it given months. That's very, very good month. And I think the politicians have an idea that you make twenty thirty percent of these sports bets, and you do not. So I think it's going to become part of the American culture, I think it'll settle down right now. Everybody's making a big deal out of it. I know that your boss's ESPN bills studio, I think Bleacher report is putting one up. And of course, the heart of it in the United States will always remain to be Las Vegas. For more prominent bookmakers are and it's a lead up to a Super Bowl. I always thought that one of the things that public wants to don't who's favored and by how many points, but that doesn't mean that everybody's going to bet that they're just interested in it as a as a point of. Reference. And that's what I always thought was a huge part of the of the sports gambling business. Cover more things my man and I'll get you out of here. You were talking about horse racing jockeys a moment ago, and I have never experienced anything in my career like standing on the race track at Churchill Downs a couple of weeks ago when that when that seven came off the tote board, and everything shifted, when the stewards, disqualified maximum security from the Kentucky Derby. I can't imagine what it must have been like in Vegas. What was the findings impact of that decision in Las Vegas, Nevada? Matia. It was. It was crazy. I thought when national security, I came down. Everybody was kind of stoned to tell you, the truth that I you know, normally like you have in March madness and there's a buzzer beater, somebody knocks down when you basket the, the room explodes that didn't happen with this. There was kind of there was kind of quiet. The, the horse player the daily horse player in Las Vegas. The majority never expected him to come down. Okay. But they felt that was because it was the Kentucky Derby, that they would leave him up, Ed and that seemed to be the opinion. I mean it went on for more than twenty minutes that seemed to be the opinion. There was not a lot of shouting and yelling. They were just waiting for it to become official, of course, more gutters, who have maximum security in, in the particular race. I've seen all the different angles as, as you have sent men. You know I, I find myself I find myself a green now with the stewards. However, I wish that they had a rule that they use an English source racy. I would not have dropped him all the way down to whatever wound up being sixty seventy play after the one of the horses interfered with it faded way back. I would have placed him no worse than third in that particular race, which they can do in England. I don't think under any circumstances. He would have faded out of the money. Yes, yes, it was a dangerous situation. World will believe it was first impact that, as he came out, you know, in the one angle, he did move out two or three lanes. But I but think it was it was more shock than maximum security came down than anything else to standing there real time on the track waiting and waiting and waiting and then. When that when that seven came off the board it, there was a noticeable. Audible gasp, that washed across the hundred sixty thousand people there. And I was looking at my producer, and she was looking at me, and we were like what in the hill just happened? And then the booze started to rain, down well, along with the rain and the mode, and it was just a it was chaos at that point, it was unlike anything I've ever covered. Speaking of great amazing moments that we've covered I would love to know. And I'll let you go after this, this'll be a hard one for you Brent. What is the greatest game you ever called? You know, Marty. I have never I can't decide that. I've been around too many. I've been around too many games. You know, there's a there's a song it includes allies country and western song, which I love to listen to out here, Montana that yesterday is dead and gone. So what I'm hopeful of is that when the Oakland Raiders play the Denver Broncos on that first Monday night game on ESPN radio, the raiders at that becomes the greatest NFL game that I've ever covered. Because I always concerned myself the most about tomorrow, because that's the only I could control. And I've been around so many great games in the past the two that I think that have appeared on television, the most so I'll give you the two that I get asked about the most. One, the famous hail Flutie, Doug Flutie in Boston College rallying against Miami. College football and the other was triple overtime in the NBA on a Friday night in Boston between the Phoenix Suns. The Boston Celtics game five of the finals, one by the by the Celtics and the three overtimes I get asked about that because they replayed the most. So I guess I would go back to those two simply because I get I get asked the most questions. I'll. Give you a close with anecdote about Flutie, because, as a result of that, of course, we became great friends because we've done so many shows together about the end of that football game. But. As it unfolded. In following the penalty and Doug pulled out to throw the final hail Mary pass into the end zone which was which was caught. I didn't realize I didn't know I couldn't tell who'd caught the football but I was fortunate enough to have a graduate of Boston College, and the truck his name was Kevin O'Malley. He was an executive at CBS. He knew a lot about broadcasting. And he reached over the producers shoulder, he pulled the talkback. He back and said Brent, it's falen Gerard falen to which if you listen to that, I don't believe it going on. And then maybe after a little time lapse. I throw in the name so Doug and I are doing a anniversary special on the play. And I tell him the anecdote that I just told you and he says to me Br. I tell you the truth. I didn't know who caught it. I said, come on, we should know. He said we after we collapsed on the field. And everybody's hugging, and we run off the Orange Bowl up into the tunnel. I've got the center, right next to me, and I said, who caught the ball and he goes, Doug? It was your roommate failing. Oh, it just just some of those little things that happened democrat moments in sports. Well, you absolutely are, are one of those soundtracks of my youth, growing up in into my professional career. And I will tell you this, I will leave you with this, one of the great moments of my professional life was two thousand seven. Greener than grass, I've never made television before in my life and I'm at Daytona. I'm in Daytona Beach, Florida and get on the elevator in hotel in Daytona Beach, Florida. And I'm scared as hail. And I don't know what I'm doing and into the elevator walks, Brent Musburger, and I'm on this elevator with this icon, and I'll know to say Hello. Did you shut up to show? Reverence detail me per sheet them, what are you, so I just kind of nodded my head and said, Hello, sir. My name's Marty Smith. I'm one of these reporters over here for ESPN and you whether you minute or whether it was true or not, man, you go. Oh, yeah. Martin. I know your work appreciate you work of read a lot of what you've done and the door opens. And I'm like, I'm in shock and you exit the elevator. And the first thing I did this was about a year before my daddy died. The first thing I did was I. Got off that elevator and I call my daddy and I said, man, you're not going to believe this Brent Musburger might have been lying to me. But I think he might know who I am. Daddy thought that was the coolest thing of all time. And I still do. So thank you. I know we were drudge brave Marty. I know who you were. I still follow you guys at ESPN. You know what I mean? Yeah, I know. And I appreciate it so much. And I know you're busy on. You've got a big day coming up here. So thank you so much. God bless you. And we appreciate your time and insight, sir. Thank you. Thanks a lot Martin. My man we'll talk to you down the road. You take care of Asir. Keep up the good work. Man. What a storyteller. I love it. Thanks so much to Brent. Forgiving me so much of his time, and thanks to ZipRecruiter. The reason you guys got to hear that is because of ZipRecruiter that interview was brought to you guys by ZipRecruiter dot com. Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire. I love what he just said there to close the interview about Doug Flutie Travis because you talk about iconic moments in college football history, something you and me or as passionate about as anybody on this planet is iconic college football moments. And he called the Doug Flutie hail Mary in the Orange Bowl against the Miami hurricanes. See, I knew that one that I knew that was going to be what he picked, because it's so iconic and it never gets old to here. I was hoping that he'd pick a couple of other games that I was slightly a little bias, too, because he's, you know, for me, he's the voice that I always hurt because he's always calling the highest state games and to stick out for me. One is. Versus purdue. Holy buckeye. And then when a highest beat the team up north that same year. His words were, let's party Columbus, when they punch their ticket to go national championship game. Those two those are two. I remember where I was for both of those games. I mean it's crazy. What I think about is course you weren't born yet, I think about being eight nine years old, and that just nasty Celtics Lakers rivalry in the NBA finals that seem to be staged annually in the Boston Garden and the great western forum and Brent Musburger called those things, along with Pat O'Brien was the sideline guy. And I just remember his his presence man, he commanded those moments seemed, so massive as a little boy, in the middle of nowhere Virginia with three channels on television and me. And daddy locked in on those. Games just with bated breath every single thing that was about to happen. You can it's those games of from my youth were so indelible. I mean I can Nate you got magic Karim Kurt Rambus Byron Scott, Michael Cooper, Michael Thompson, clay's dead. All those guys are, are in my mind, and that's, that's the Laker side. You know, you got bird, perish Dennis Johnson. Kevin McHale chief Bill Walton. Like I do I can remember it so well so vividly because it was so, so intense and Brent was right in the middle of those things, call those games. And I just just so cool to hear his perspective. And as I said to him there during the interview it just blow blew my mind, a head to call my dad and tell him. That man, I talked to Brit Musburger and daddy. I think that man might know who I am. Maybe. Wow. I've been very blessed with those kinds of moments in that one was special to me, and I appreciate his time. So I think I failed you and we've forgot one question to ask him, which now we just wanted to have to have him back on is where how did he come up with the you're looking live because that's the thing that's list. It's almo list a thought about it, but I wanted to get him out of there as quick as I could after asking them all that other stuff, because that's one of those ones, you know, that that's, that's his saying everybody hopes to have something like that. Like he's got one it's. Four of them, man. And you are looking live is certainly the most recognizable. So thanks. Brent learned a lot. He might be like, I mean, what are we got four or five straight guests? Now that we got to have a second installment. So we'll add him to that list, and we'll ask him about you're looking live now it's time to discuss something about which Travis or if not experts than we are at least well practiced. That's choke and beer. And this is brought to you by Tico T. So is the official watch of the NBA each one of T, so's time pieces delivers quality performance and traditional luxury. This is graduation season guys. So this graduation season. Make sure to get the NBA fan in your life t so watch the tea so krono XL is a great watch for those looking for a sporty krona graph with Swiss technology at an unbeatable price shop now at US dot T, so shop. Dot com. I've been forty three years old for a month now. Six weeks Travis still hadn't got me. Let's go on expert. They may be I just don't know what's going on, man. They like they are obviously invested in us. So all you gotta do make like your Tito's liquor. It's like vodka. Call the CEO of tesol and tell me one interview then we'll get some watch. But if not, we'll settle for a couple of watches. Yeah, you can say no. That's cool. Just send us a sin. The Sibusiso krono XL, two of them. That's all we're asking for. We do appreciate an all seriousness t-, so's belief in us and support us because look they support us so that we can keep this thing free for you guys so that you guys can listen and not have to pay to listen. So thank you so much to t-, so antipathy cruiser, now let's get chugging be. So mad already. So one thing that I've really enjoyed about the NBA finals is the fact that when they're playing Milwaukee, there's a Chuck and beer contest on the Jumbotron, and it has made the what's that offense of lineman's name Travis David about Yari? It's made him famous. I mean he's made it famous, he's everywhere, all over social media, Instagram, Twitter chugging, these beers, and I will tell you, my man could chug a beer. I mean it's gone right down the pipe man right down. Don't see you. So at game five in Milwaukee of the Eastern Conference finals, this started happening again on the Jumbotron. And so the Landman says naming and Travis David TRE that could be wrong. You David, so David is sitting right, beside Christian yelich? Right. And so, David pounds, down this beer and he looks over yelich yelich, chokes down his beer, and then they look across the court at Aaron Rodgers so Rogers, it's his turn to chug is beer. And Rogers is not impressed with yelich. He says, no, he only had a half a Cup. I'm not impressed by that. So then Rogers he chokes his beer. Well, I don't think the Matthew Stafford the Detroit Lions quarterback was very impressed with that. So they're the restaurant him and his wife and some buddies or whatever they put it on social media of Matthew panel down, his cO bear so that then led Travis in me to this debate that we've had for the last few days about what NFL quarterback would be the champion of Kobe chugging, and I have two on my list that I think will be in the finals. Not think it could be Baker Mayfield versus Josh L. Cleveland Browns against the Buffalo Bills makers bakers are good one to go with I mean, look bakers one hundred ten percent on everything Baker does. And so, I bet you Baker I'll bet Baker could do it. I'll bet he'd be really good at it, but Josh, Josh Josh's big old, boy, I'll bet he could. I'll bet he could erase a beer, real quick to I'm thinking of Josh on this one, I just feel like a little bigger guy. Being up in buffalo now with the bills mafia feel like that's kind of like a prerequisite. I assume that his combine or his special work out with the bills that they're like, listen. We don't care about your forty like what you're Chuck time, because our fans can't have some do just sipping on some Pino. We need a guy that's going to go out there and chug some beers. So that is our homework for you guys this week. Hopefully, some of you guys watch the last waltz your homework from last week this week we want you to send us a note on Twitter machine at Marty Smith. ESPN at Travis rock. Hold send us a note of why your quarterback will whoever your favorite team is why your quarterback should be in contention should be considered as the greatest beer, chugging among NFL signal. Did you see Aaron Rodgers as tweet afterwards? So he sent it to the bacteria, and he said, make it scotch next time. Oh, so he's gonna make him making some excuses. Also trying to say I'm a classy drinker here. I need, you know. Scott. Listen Aaron lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Green Bay, Wisconsin. They don't drink scotch. His diet should consumes bear town, beer cheese, Kurds. Yeah. So I think he should what he should do is, is look, the guy is in my opinion I think he's the best player in football. He blows my mind, man. The throws he makes the comebacks you know he's captain comeback. And so he is really, really good. If a ball he needs to up his game with a co bear in his hand. I Philip rivers might be a sneaky, just fear guy. He's a sneaky. Oh country. Boy, I bet he could pan onto like he wears a bolo. You can't wear a bolo without being able to chug beer. Does he wear a bolo? He always wears a bolo. He loves Bolos so that, that's awesome. Yeah. Loves his Bolos Richard petty wears a bolo should I start, incorporating a bolo into my repertoire, I don't know. It maybe depends on what the event, you're at all. Those both those are pretty. Do I think I will want an eighth grade basketball, Mr. McGraw coach girl, used to make us in eighth grade basketball, we had to wear our nicest clothes to school on game days, and we grew up in Paris Berkman? It's a bunch of country. Kids. We didn't have the nicest clothes, and I remember one day I laid out my clothes before I went to school. And I had like some navy pants like, you know, navy pleaded khaki pants whatever I had a purple shirt. Lavender shirt, I had some kind of paisley tie that was purple and green and blue and I thought it tied everything together, I was wrong. So I put away the tie and I went with the bolo so we did you have when I was like your dad's tie. It was my, you had a bolo tie that age. I think all of us I feel like it was a thing for the Spartan eighth. Grade basketball team back in one thousand nine hundred nine was this at the same time of your cornucopia bad decisions? Same era. So you're. Cornucopia bad decisions, plus a bolo. I, I assume you didn't have a girlfriend pretty solid. I had all kinds of girlfriends. What are you talking about? Man. I see let me think if I think about my girlfriend, I didn't have a girlfriend in eighth grade. No. I did not. I had no girlfriend. I wonder what the reason was in seventh grade. I'm pretty sure seventh grade. Seventh grade my little girlfriend will share Rackliff. She was a cheerleader on a Peirce Berg lines and I was a play for the pairs Berg lines. Pop more football team. And I don't know. I don't remember share let me hold her hand or not with the cornucopia of bad decisions. Probably not. I can't imagine the cornucopia, plus the Bulla was really attracting too many of them. But many thing about the cornucopia of bad decisions coupled with the lavender shirt and navy pants and probably I had on some old like cons. I probably, you know what I put up a thing, the other day, I'll put up a tweet the other day. I don't know what made me think of it, but I just got to thinking about my shoes when I was a kid and I had to Walter Payton kangaroos, I had to Walter pain kangaroos that were navy orange and white. They were the sweetness ruse, and they had a tongue pocket where you can put your milk money, and I probably had those on along with my navy pants, and my lavender shirt and my turquoise bolo tie. Now, this thing was sweet may, and it had like a turquoise, Jim thing in the middle and some silver on it back, end the Dicky's to be wearing to the Ronnie. Dunn. Be wearing that thing out to the show. Is this back when you were in Dickie's to oh, for sure? Oh yeah, man. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We whatever reason when we were throwing. Hey, we decided it was a good idea. Not to wear shirts. I am. I am you know what I call being ginger? Right. I call it. Ginger vitus. I'm here. I am. I got this ginger Vitus and you just burn to a crisp. And then you turn white, again it just doesn't make like I don't know what I was trying to prove man. I don't even know what to say. Yeah, I'm glad I left you speechless. All right. That means we meet on that amazing bit of idiocy was story time with and Travis brought to you about thi so t so the official watch of the NBA shop at US dot T, so shop dot com. And before you close it out for its mardi. I've been getting some good request on itunes.

It Just Means More

"Hey, y'all well-to-do Smith American podcast thirty nine. It's a great, Greg. Thank Commissioner of the southeastern conference joins me to discuss all of the variables of his job things that he faces every single day his greatest concerns as he moves forward in that role the greatest challenges that he faces every single day when he sits down in the head office down there in Birmingham, Alabama. What it's like to actually be in that head chair compared to what you think it might be how he got here his amazing journey from Auburn New York where he grew up to Birmingham as the Commissioner of the southeastern conference and not only that we also discuss pressing issues in collegiate athletics today, like potential player compensation his thoughts on whether or not these collegiate players should be compensated for playing major college football or major college basketball. Whether he believes in the current system that is the college football playoff. What is his thought on potential expansion? We get into many different things, and it was a fascinating conversation one that really inspired me certainly one that educated me, and is going to have the same impact on you. Look this man, Greg Sankey is in one of the most prestigious most important most scrutinized roles in all of sport in this country Commissioner of the southeastern conference, and what an honor to have the opportunity to spend twenty five or thirty minutes with him really digging into his leadership philosophy his path to now. And what he sees when he looks into the SEC crystal ball moving forward. Here's our conversation on the Marty Smith's America podcast with SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey. So Greg, let's just start with your path. I don't know that journey house a guy from Auburn New York end up as SEC Commissioner, how's that work? Well, my my quick vision for life was to be coaching and teaching high school level, and I ended up right out of college working in a college setting or the master's at Syracuse had complete an internship did that and Louisiana which was just one of those great adventures in life and then from northwestern state university in nacogdoches Louisiana to their conference office and became Commissioner of that league. The Southland conference at age thirty one and during that time out to know Mike's live, Mike, upstate New York. I was born and raised in Utica, New York, and we became friends and one day he said, would you ever think about working in the SEC office? And I said I haven't but I will and that put me here and and had some. Some success and opportunities had some chances to leave and and and stayed and then went through a full search process of pawn Mike's announce retirement, and boom here we are. That's the quick version. Where could you have gone if you had so chosen to leave? You know, I almost there was a a weekend where I was the athletic director Colgate university. I went through that search process actually went up to visit with the trustees, and in some ways, it was a great professional moment in some ways. It was one of those low points on my professional life where I said, you know, what the day of the press conference. This really isn't for me. So those who've seen, you know, Bobby Cremins, Billy Donovan, there's great people said. Yeah, that's the right job. And then wait a second. So I pulled one of those involved in a search min America conference that went down the road along way back in about oh nine and and just decided that wasn't the right situation. And number of things that came to me in college athletics. I've always wanted to work in sports, but in an educational context opposed to a professional level. And you know, just was always challenged here and was learning every. The day and decided to stay and again that that opportunity to be a part of the search for the Commissioner manifested itself. And you know, it's now Ben over three and a half years in the seat and things are going. Well. I think they're going very well. Think you made the right choice on that path. And I wanna get the philosophy and all that in a minute. But staying with the theme of of growing up did you grow up Syracuse fan? Yeah. Oh, absolutely. They they made a run at the final four under a head coach name, ROY Danforth. And Jim behind wasn't assistant and nineteen seventy five. It was John wooden 's last year as coach UCLA and UCLA won that final four. And I was listening on the radio at that time and the big east conference did not exist. They played what was called the CAC and went through its turnament format much smaller NCA tournament format of mardi. That was when this notion of college sports came alive. I was eleven years old. It was also that year when when I won the cleanest desk award at school, which if you saw my desk right now that was the one month in my life. My desk was clean and the the prize was a book, and I chose they call me coach, which was John wooden biography. I actually still have the book that I won back in sixth grade and nineteen seventy five it's in my off. And I'm looking at it right now. And all of that was a moment for me that that kind of created this notion of going to college having opportunity to work in sports, and you know, maybe some someway somewhere way long down the road. I might be able to work in college sports setting. How would you describe your business philosophy? Well, business leadership there's kind of much nouns that fit in there. It's high expectations for the people around me, the expectation is for myself to act with integrity. I learned a long time ago that I have to live by a set of principles that inform my priorities. I want my family to be able to thrive, but I also want to work hard. And dedicated way, I want to show up to work with people who are excited about what they do. With whom I wanna work I wanna set high expectations and see those expectations Cheever as opposed to always have into to prod and move people along I think that in what I do it is a highly relational business. So we're talking mid morning. I've already visited with four athletic directors on phone calls about looking forward type issues did the same thing yesterday. And that's a thumbnail sketch of the priorities, but we also want to excel at this level, they're high expectations. So we talk about from vision graduating every student athlete winning every championship and having the opportunity to change the world because of doing those two things very well. Who in what shape that approach? Well, me and my dad is as a welder, he's a union pipe fitter. And my grandfather was his stepfather. And you know, there weren't anything that we're not any pain vacations. It was get up early and go to work. I had two summers where I actually worked in the construction of a nuclear power plant where you know, you're up at five you had to be on the job at seven you worked at the ten hour day. The pay was good, and you work six days a week on that job. And you know, it was kind of work and come home and rest and go back to work. And it was just that cycle watching him and knowing how he met the needs of our family my mom's energy. There's a lot of of myself that I've taken just from watching them not because they sat me down and said, here's the way life has to be. But watching how they live my mom earned or college degree. In her forties. They never over at least said you're going to college. But it was like this expectation that was always present along with this really significant work ethic around care for family, and and maintaining relationships around you, and then, you know, through my professional career, I've had the opportunity to work with four or five really really good leaders. And then stop and watch other people around me, mardi one of the great things for me as I've been in these rooms SAM's nineteen eighty nine with the athletic leadership from division one. And you gotta sit in the back and watch and listen and learn a lot if you're smart enough to do that that you don't always have to be. I didn't have a phone to beyond the check Twitter at that point. So. Much more. Engage listening opportunity all of that combined to make me who I am today. And part of the challenge for me is that it's not static that that learning has to be a lifetime commitment, which is is central to who. I am. Who do you think you are right now in January of two thousand nineteen compared to who you were on March thirteenth two thousand fifteen when you officially took the job as the Commissioner of southeastern conference. Yeah. Good research on dates there, man. You know that day. There was a relief. I remember I gave you my bil- my wife, and I at the end of that that day back in March of twenty fifteen how to moment where I looked at her, and we hogged, and I said at work, and she said what worked and I said all of it the decision to take a job not take a job to be on this committee or go to that meeting. Or are not go said it worked. So on that day. There was a great sense of relief today my stomach continually in a not if you will just the intensity of the role. You don't know what it's like to sit in the chair at the end of the hall until you literally sit in the chair at the end of the hall. So I had the opportunity for six and a half years to lead a smaller conference. I knew a little bit of that the intensity here is is much greater than anything. I'd ever experienced. So to really get to the question I have much greater awareness about the significance of what I say and its meaning on a national stage. And so I'm much more careful perhaps than I have been much more intentional about taking time for myself every day. Otherwise, my days are just overrun with issues. I'm a lot more open to communication seven days a week because I understand better today. That's the job, and I'm probably more focused. I'm more focused on what's next than what is. So our staff has to to deal with what is today from time to time, I engage in those issues, but the real expectation is that we're looking to the future or around the corner to see what's next and make sure that we're fully prepared for whatever realities may manifest themselves. What's next? Yeah. That's a good question. You know, we we. We just went we just completed football season. And during that football season, we were talking about what's next, you know, the the world of attention around -ficiating and every sports very different. So we have been in meaningful discussions about. How do we communicate more effectively about that aspect of what we do? We've taken a long look knowing that in twenty twenty three we have a conclusion date around our contractual relationship with CBS for broadcasting. Our first pick football games, we announced in November and affiliation with evolution media, Creative Artists Agency a television, which is five years in advance of that date to help us prepare because that world is changing so quickly. We're waiting for a judge's decision in some litigation around college athletics. Part of your question will be an. Entered by that judge's decision, and what plays out next we wanna make sure in the future we have high expectations. So I see in this conference. Continuing enrollment increases continuing tarred to believe but continuing increase of attention, and we've got to prepare for that from a public relations and communication standpoint. As we move forward, you were discussing not knowing what it's like to be in the big charity into the hall until you're in that chair. I can't imagine what day one must have been like what what what was the first day. Like when you were in that chair here you've had all these years of print in the SEC system, the SEC administrative system. But now, you're the guy what was that first day? Like, I'm gonna talk about two first days if I may so my my first day officially is Commissioner was the Monday after our spring meeting and destined back in two thousand fifteen and I purposely on that day because it was June way didn't have any. Of our contest going on. It was all postseason. I took the day. The right. A whole bunch of notes and letters and emails to people who help me get here to just say, thank you. And I done some research. I wrote to my second grade teacher who's one of those people that you just remember inspired me as a young person. I wrote to my college baseball coach about a particular moment in my college experience where he helped me understand. What leadership really was and at that point? I wasn't at the end of the hallway sitting commissioners chair as a freshman on a baseball team was a backup catcher. And he intersected me and helped me understand more about leadership an author named John or Berg who in a moment in my adult life when I needed to rethink how I was living encountered a book he'd written called the life. You've always wanted. And I saw that title. I'm like, hey. Yeah. That's like the the secret. And it wasn't a secret. It was just a a moment where I had to rethink. Some of my commitments and principles that I talked about earlier. So that's that's really what I did on day. One a lot of phone calls. They to reality started to hit though. But the next week I moved into the Commissioner's office. Mike's live my predecessor after our spring meetings was was packing up and moving out that week. I remember that first day sitting at the desk. I now occupy at eight in the morning kind of overwhelmed for a few minutes because I had visited this very office in nineteen ninety eight when I was thirty three years old. I was Commissioner of the Southland conference was coming here to meet with right Kramer. And remembering the first time I walked in here thinking while I'm in the office of the SEC Commissioner place on that that day when I was actually in here I occupied. So I dealt with the offer about fifteen minutes. And then again, I think something walked through my door came to me on the phone where you're like, oh, you're the leader now and the distinction between. Kind of being an adviser. And then being in the chair to the side as one that that I can't overstate when you're when you move into those roles, and again, I'd had it before you're listening to advisers or when you're an associate Commissioner executive soci- commissioned. You're saying here's what I think. And then ultimately the Commissioner has to decide and that is a change in and mentality. Where you listen, you listen, and then you decide as opposed to being able to just contribute to the conversation. And and that was present in both of those first days that you're alternately decide or on certain issues and those decisions have impact, you know, that book it intrigues me. What did you wanna do differently? How did you wanna live your life differently? Well, my first visit ironically to the SEC office was scheduled for September of ninety seven and as I traveled here as in the Atlanta airport, and I passed out and up spending a night in the hospital with a regular heartbeat cardiac. Arrhythmia atrial fibrillation is what they called. And I was at a time where it at that point. I was in my early thirties to kids wasn't sleeping buzzing exercising wasn't eating right. I was drinking at ton of law. And there's a Seinfeld episode where Kramer got free law tastes. And he walked out of a store just jittery and talking fast and flat out that knock me on my back in you know, in that moment was in a bathroom when I passed out and needed some medical help. You get through that. And you're like, wow. This can't stay the same. And I spent about six months visiting with a cease. We'd people if you will live. I lived in Dallas at the time vice presidents of JC Penney in a company called EDS that Ross Perot, it started MCI, which the predecessor of rise in the number of other folks, just to say, how do you balance things, and I bought this six months of no it's trying to figure out, you know, how do I balance work and life and family, and I ended up reading this book and in the book, there was a line that said the problem with chasing balance is not that it's too great ago. But it it's too. It's insufficient. Like, Wow, I've spent all this time, and that altered just kinda how I thought about things that you wanna make full commitment to your your wife, your children your job. And it created a probably a five year effort to say here's the characteristics that describe. Me principles or priorities of you will inform principles that then informed by priorities. And it was a good experience. I've not had a similar health problem sense. I'm much more diligent and exercising. I I probably should be like you and drink more protein, shakes and less hamburgers. But you know, life's a progression. So I'm not quite there yet Marty. Yeah. I have an issue. I'm a little bit neurotic about all those things brother, but you are doing. Well, you look great. You know, you you noted a moment ago all of those things in the what's next question like the pending television negotiations and all of those things I can't imagine the quantity of challenges on your desk. But what would you say are the greatest challenges that you face SEC Commissioner, well, if I could just reduce it to one I actually have five pages of like revolving priorities that I review and things move on and off just quickly. One is the amount of transition. We've had in leadership roles. We have great leaders on our campuses. My predecessors had the benefit of really stable leadership at the presidential level, and the athletic director level, you know, we athletic director to serve for fifteen twenty twenty five years and. A- and those life cycles have shortened. So that causes the need to reinforce why we made certain decisions reinforce a culture of collegiality. That's worked really well, even in a very competitive situation. And I placed that one actually at the top of the priorities because for any organization to thrive there has to be cohesion and collaboration among its leadership to make that work, and we're reinforcing that on a regular basis, and I'm grateful for the infusion of new thinking in new thoughts and new perspectives. And also that those have those individuals have embraced the culture and being a part of the southeastern conference in such unique way. So so that's one, you know, the changing media environment. I put two or maybe one a we have great agreements with CBS ESPN, and then the SEC ESPN network, they work really, well, but none of us can be blind to the fact. That media's changing all around us like you. And I are doing a radio interview. We're we're doing a podcast we'll five years ago there were some of those things, but we've seen that aspect of media mushroom where you can go to deliver specific content. The people what does that mean for the future? How do we adapt? How can we make our are televised? Contest more interactive. How can we provide programming that attracts people in and it may be a more niche driven? But there are a lot of people that wanna see certain aspects of college sports different angles, including behind the scenes. So that's second. The the litigation issue is real. I never want to overstate that about we have to adjust. And it's a it's a reality around college sports. We think we do things incredibly. Well. I I watch right now young people who are have finished their careers at our schools, and our perhaps pursuing NFL careers or even some who've decided to transfer and over and over on their social media. They're making these statements about how great their experience was at their SEC university. We have to keep that at the forefront of what we do. And we want to be ultra competitive we've got some of these pressures here, but fundamentally when you get through pay culture, he gets remediate get through litigation you always come back to say the support experience provided door student athletes in this league has risen to a point where the second non where if you want. A challenge yourself competitively and be supported in a marvelous fashion we can do that in the southeastern conference, and that's not really a challenge that's a reality and something that we should embrace. So those are four quick issues that are are kind of top of mind and almost daily circumstance much of it though being very good because we're doing things really well in the SEC. So there are couple of questions I'd like to to hit you with on issues and collegiate athletics right now that are that are kind of overarching not just in the southeastern conference, but nationwide and one of those narratives right now is about player compensation. Some folks feel like amateur players at the collegiate level deserve to be compensate. It's a very complicated issue. Greg very complicated. What are the variables involved that make that difficult from your perspective? Well, there's there's some realities which is the the revenue has increased significantly. Over the last fifteen to twenty years the compensation provided to individuals, particularly coaches generates a lot of headlines, and that creates some perceptions you see at our level full stadiums full arenas full baseball stadiums. And we have had the issue introduced both both by student athletes current and former and through some of the legation efforts going back to the O'Bannon lawsuit. Obama versus the NCAA. So those put those those rallies put the issues on the agenda on the other side. I think we in college athletics have done a poor job communicating about how well supported student athletes are in their endeavors. So these these compensation issues may lead the headlines. What's what's not seen as the significant support structure that's built into each athletics? Programs academic support medical support nutritional support or the new manifestation of psychological mental health support for student athletes. I have been clear that I believe the compensation really the financial support provided the student athlete should be tied directly to their educational pursuits and their competitive endeavors, and that's the appropriate level. We moved to cost of attendance my first year as Commissioner as part of scholarship. So there's more to help student athletes meet their needs as students that's provided through their financial support. I think that is where the limit is. There are there aspects of travel their unique here in we don't exist is a professional league in we shouldn't exist as professionally we wouldn't do that very well compared to the NFL or NBA what we do. Well is we educate seen by over? Twenty graduate patches on Alabama football players playing in that national championship game. And that's model throughout this league. I don't wanna sacrifice the educational endeavor for expansion further of the commercial endeavour around college athletics. Already challenged with that now, and we have a responsibility to keep that narrow. So that young people have four or five year experience to pursue their education and also to succeed competitively. What an answer. Wow. I appreciate your candor. That was great. And you know, what Marty people disagree with that? And the beauty of this is we ought to be in dialogue. We should share our perspectives. And opinions I have respect for those who few things differently. I seek to understand before I'm trying to be understood. But at the same time in college sports, we should never lose our direct attachment to the educational mission. Over universities. That's been a challenge for a hundred years. It'll be a challenge for the next hundred years yet, we do we do support young people incredibly well in the southeastern conference. Yeah. I just I go round and round and round about that particular issue, and we don't need to get off in a rabbit hole. But in my mind like in my in, my heart. I say, no, they shouldn't be paid. But I'm also not them, right? Like, I'm not those men who were out there playing ball and getting this education and all these things in their coaches making seven and a half million dollars in these stadiums or full because their names on the back of that jersey. So I really do see both sides. Couple more things, and I'll get you out of here brother, another thing that we continually hear especially in this past month is the whole playoff expansion narrative. It's an ad nauseam. Everybody has an opinion. What is your position on college football playoff expansion? My position is that the expansion of the national championship competition from two hundred the old BCS for that to four under the college football playoff format has worked very well. It worked well this year, and it can continue to work well in the future. And that's where my focus in support is might the current system be improved in different ways. I it may. But I'm not an advocate for expanding beyond for. And I'm one who suggests that any of that consideration should be very deliberate. If you look at the expansion from two to four that was a ten. A year process. And I wouldn't I wouldn't I'm not one who is inclined to open the door, but every year part of our responsibilities. Commissioners is to look at what happens in the playoff and make sure we're meeting our original objectives, which I'm one who thinks we're doing doing very, well, I'm with you. I like four very much. We also understand. And I jumped in there just to follow up. I went to seven bowl games. And I started with a six and six Vanderbilt team playing on on ESPN and the textile and Thursday night that was an important opportunity for that team. I went to the Capital One bowl and watch the Kentucky team that hadn't played in that bowl reach a win season for the first time since the seventies that was an important opportunity for that team in a whole lot of things in between that are are part of this ecosystem, which does include the fourteen playoff. Couple more promise. Your life to worry about. I saw on your social accounts of photo of a neon sign that that states do something great to brag a minute. All right. What do you feel like you've done? That's great during your time as Commissioner. Oh, wow. I I think there's a lot one time. I put together a sheet. So I'm gonna put it the top couple things we've done around student at between created a football student athlete leadership council men's basketball student athlete leadership council in a women's basketball student athlete leadership council. He's are highly recruited scholarship student athletes that were missing in the traditional student athlete advisory committee work and to be able to bring those individuals in to identify some issues to engage them in deep dialogue about what's happening around their experience on our campuses. They're experience around conference or national championships. And what they see for themselves is at the high of the meaningless right behind that. We created a student athlete career tour tappan every December for the last three years where we bring in about twenty eight student athletes, and they've been the Delta Airlines that happens in Atlanta around our football champion. And ship game. We brought him. Delta Airlines Chick-fil-A UPS Atlanta Hawks. The Atlanta Braves any number of others to to say, look, you're about to go through transition from being a student and an athlete into a career. We wanna help the silicate that we've had people young people have jobs out of those encounters as is our career tour. They've had career opportunities, and we're actually trying to figure out how to multiply that that that opportunity at career tour, you know, around officiating my first year we were talking about hey, could you centralize replay? So we have more correct outcomes. I think what we've done in football has helped improve our officiating. Not that. It's perfect. But that was a monumental and a resource commitment of great importance. We've done the same in men's basketball, the continued competitive success. We went five national champion. Chips last academic year. We finished eleven or set in second place on eleven different occasions, some of those two SEC teams, but the ability to actually elevate our sustained competitive success even over the last decade is an important point of pride the SEC graduate. Patch Marty is one that where we were trying to figure out how do you convey were educating young people, and it was a lot of work. And actually the folks at the university of Arkansas helped us with the final design where when you graduate, and you continue competing you get to wear that emblem on your on your jersey on your uniform what I never anticipated was how much that would mean to a student athlete who gets to put that patch on after three and a half four years of higher education and then walk out onto the field the track the core. The baseball diamond the softball diamond with a patch. It says there are graduate. I've watched. So so. Media feeds from student athletes, showing incredible emotion even more emotion than when they actually received a diploma that they get to walk out with that designation. What what you hear is? There's been a lot of student athlete focused work that we've done while sustaining competitive success that that ranks among the accomplishments of significant and I'll say they last for this. 'cause I could give you thirty minute podcast on everything just on accomplishments and progress, I'm really proud of our staff of the people that I work within this office and their engagement, and dedication, you know, all of these things don't happen by themselves. So I can come up with an idea and have some help and figuring out whether it's a good idea or not and then people have to carry forward, implement, those ideas. And whether it's the just means more campaign that you see on our advertising around. Our venues or maybe a little thing like that graduate, Pat, the patch the execution of our staff makes that possible. Last thing you are in one of the most prestigious most important most scrutinized leadership positions in sports. What makes it good leader someone who's prepared not fully, but fully prepared to take on the issues of the day? And that requires a commitment to lifelong learning in education. No matter your position or your age. There is a humility that must be present that acknowledges, I know a lot. But I don't know everything. So I'm going to have to rely on the people around me the ability to block out the noise in the critics in focus on what you believe is a leader our priorities and the principles that informed decision making and you have to make decisions and live with those outcomes and be fully prepared to live with those outcomes. I've had the opportunity to learn from a number of great leaders. Whether it's an interpersonal relation. Ships or through different learning, whether it'd be reading or studying those individuals, and in each I think show those characteristics of humility engagement lifelong learning the ability withstand the pressure and the ability is still defined space and time to enjoy the outcomes of that leadership work. Well, you've done a tremendous job the Senate put in as we say down south, man. I can't thank you enough for your time for your insight, and it's been such a great joy to spend his time with you fell shipping, man. Thank you. Thank you. And part of all of it is, you know, I put on a pair of jeans and pulled down a ball cap and go to a dirt track and watch car racing for a few hours every summer. That's that's one of those enjoyable aspects as well that keeps it centered. It was wonderful to be with you at the dirt track. I could tell that you were in your element. And you were at home, and you could not. I don't think we could wipe the smile off your face with a pressure washer. Was fun. It was fun to see. But was that was good good? Good evening. Thank you. Told you guess told you you would be fascinated. I'm I'm fascinated. I want I just want to make sure you guys understand when I chatted with Greg. It was eleven o'clock in the morning eleven AM to about eleven thirty or so something like that. And as you heard him say he had already had four extensive conversations with various athletic directors within his conference about pressing issues within the conference or within their respective programs before eleven o'clock, he's had four in depth conversations, mardi forgetting something that's officer in central time zone. So it's only ten AM for him. That's a very good point. That's a very good point Travis various student that Buckeye education coming through right there. Somebody came to somebody's not partly cloudy this morning, some of may be otherwise. But what unique perspective on what he faces every single day. And I appreciated his candor about those issues that are pressing whether that's evolving media that CBS deal that he was discussing. It's up in twenty twenty three is going to be the most coveted collegiate property maybe ever that SEC number one game of the week is a gold mine. And so that negotiation is going to be very interesting to see how that unfolds, and of course, it's been a staple on CBS for so many years from uncle Vern, and Gary to now Brad Nessler, they do such a great job. And it is a staple of collegiate experience. It always has a big game feel and think about that three thirty window. See that's a stand alone game. There are no other games going on the games the early or there at night three thirty window. That's one game. All the eyeballs. South on that game. It just feels important right? You know, having grown up in the south it just that game. Just feels important am I wrong, look manure midwestern kid, you went to Ohio State? You're a big ten guy to the hilt. But am I wrong that that particular game just feel so important to minute? But you're right as much as I hate that slogan. It just means more. They're not wrong. I got a little taste of it this past year going down there LSU, and it really does mean more to them. If I would have had forty five minutes if I would have had forty five minutes with with Greg. I was going to ask him who came up with it just means more. I'd love to know who who who said that comment. Maybe that'll be our follow up conversation. We'll get into that. But just a fascinating conversation and someone admire in so many ways because I couldn't do it. I couldn't have all of that on my desk every single day and every single minute with. So many people counting on your leadership. And so many every move you make be having such tremendous aftereffects. And I'm not misinterpreting what I heard he unequivocally doesn't feel like collegiate athletes should be paid in a different structure than they are right now. Right. That's what I heard corrected mince any words, and I meant what I said aftermath of his commentary. I I really see both sides. There's a very distinct feeling that comes with college football and college basketball, specifically that it feels it just it is a business, but it doesn't feel like one in a lot of ways. And I think it's a separating factor. And I liked that feeling but I'm a forty two year old guy who benefits from that? Right. I have my career because of that I'm not Zion Williamson or Christian Wilkins or Trevor Lawrence. It's or to tongue of Loa or any number of hundreds hundreds of players. So forget hundreds. I mean, you got to think about him. You heard Greg mentioned, Ed O'Bannon. I mean, this thing this goes way way back think about Jalen rose. When we we had Jalen was our second wasn't. He the second podcast Travis. So I think he was a second podcast and go all the way back to Jalen and Chris Webber being overseas when they were on the fab five and seeing their jerseys or whatnot. They're memorabilia hanging in the window and going, wait a minute. Somebody's making money off of this in Amy. And so a genuinely CBO sides in a very complicated issue. Some people are are extremely many people are extreme on either side of the issue. Maybe I'm maybe I'm boring. I'm living on the fence on that one. And mardi. You have a different perspective. You get to know these athletes on a little more personal level than the fans. Do just watching TV. So you see what they go through? And what their life is like and understand why they want to get paid. Absolutely. That's why again, this is a whole other rabbit hole. But these young men that sit out of these bowl games. Good for you that I would I would if I'm Andre Baker. Or if I'm Lynn for net, or if I'm Christian McCaffrey, you bet your ass. I'm sitting out think about will Greer. We had him on the podcast. Here's a wife and a daughter think about so one bowl game was at one bowl game really going to do for him and his career was the plan going to propel him any further up in the draft. But an injury could have heard even worse. I'm so glad I'm so glad for Jalen Smith that he has had such tremendous career. I'm so happy that the Cowboys waited on him that they did take a chance they took a chance and drafted this amazing player from Notre Dame who against your buckeyes Headey catastrophic injury. And the Cowboys waited on him, and he is a phenomenal football player. And I'm glad that that worked out for him. But that was the moment that was the line of demarcation right there. Jalen Smith where these. Guys, went wait a minute and their agents right who their potential representation, wait a minute. I don't know if we should be playing in his game or not and when Leonard and Christian made the decision to sit I think it just changed. It changed everything. All right. We're way we're way off the reservation now, but thanks so much to to Greg Sankey SEC Commissioner for his tremendous insight. I'm better for it. And I'm certainly smarter for it. Think about this. We always talk about not wanting to be the guy to replace the guy Commissioner Sankey had that role. He had to go in there and fill the void and replace Commissioner. Mike's live who was a huge influence in the college world just that name. I mean, just that name, right. Mike slob mean that name is synonymous with intercollegiate athletic excellence. And you're right Sankey had to come in and follow that. But. No pressure at all in man. He has thrived. He has done. Just such a tremendous job in a hard job. So as you guys know always intrigued by Twitter, and I just think that it can be the greatest of mediums and the most amazing things can happen. And I also think that it is assessed pool of hatred. I saw the most interesting thing. So I can put a video up of Trevor Lawrence throwing sixty two yard touchdown pass. Whatever the number was two Justin Rawls or I can put up a video. I can be standing on the sideline right beside Daboh Sweeney. When he's going crazy when they have a pick six on the third play of the national championship game. I can put those videos up, and they'll do thirty forty fifty thousand views whatever I can be standing in that exact same spot and post video randomly just thought. It was interesting the way that the moment unfolded where a young lady runs out on the field to protest something or other and the enforcement law enforcement folks, take her off, and I just happened to be standing right by the path through which they took her and it did how many of us now Travis. One point something million. I think on let me check and that's just for mafia. Who knows what it's done from other ones. There was another Twitter account that stole the video posted as if it was there's and define hundred thousand zone just on that one. Yeah. Right. And I don't even know mine is no it's more than a million. I'm a million before I left the stadium the other night, give one point two million. Okay. So you're looking at one point seven at least one point seven from my feet, and then whomever, this other feed was that took it and. That's I mean, it just is there something weird about that. Like what is that traps? Explain that to me, I like to believe she was protesting that a high state should have been the college football playoffs. Works for me brother that a work for me. I guess I can get behind that spoken like a scarlet and gray son of the Buckeye nation. Thank you guys so much for hanging out what an awesome opportunity to interview SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey, again, appreciate his inside. And his time. I learned so much. I'm appreciative of Travis scheduling that interview with the Commissioner so prescient of Louise being crazy enough to let us do it. And thank you to you guys for your commitment to it because I love to hear your feedback. Please let us know your feedback. When you listen, I'm at Marty Smith, ESPN travis's at Travis rock hold and we love that feedback. It's appreciated go on I tunes and subscribe rate in review. Let us know what you think there. I know it seems trivial, but it matters to. Us, and it certainly matters to the bosses that you gas scrabble eight in review, so please do that. And as always do I wanna thank our military before we get outta here. There's a reason we're free, and it's because of our women in uniform who work every single day away from their families sacrificing so that we can be free and live in the greatest country in the world. So thank you so much to our military members. That is episode thirty nine of the Marty Smith's America podcast. Thank you guys for listening. We'll catching next time around.

Quack, quack, quack Mr. Cristobal

"Espn college football. Podcast hosted by paul finebaum. Matt berry. I yes it is sunday tradition. Unlike any other it is the espn college football podcast. Five days a week. We get started here on sunday. Mornings with paul finebaum berry. Hopefully you're having a cup of coffee ice spicy. Bloody mary whatever. You're doing to wash down at your saturday of college football. Good morning. how are you. I am doing great man. I was just Participating myself since someone else's talking to me today that When was the last time. Jim harbaugh was smiling and ohio. State fans were frowning. It's been a while yet. you know. That's a great place to kick this thing off because it was the game of the week to slate than otherwise let a lot to be desired and it was oregon traveling into the shoe to take on ohio state. Oh and nine against ohio state was oregon ryan. Dad never lost a regular season game. Twenty three marino and paul. We sit here sunday morning. And here's a sentence is probably even more bizarre than what you just said. What a day. And what a win for the pac twelve th. They've they've had some you know they. They've had some very impressive. Wednesday almost had an even more amazing day with a colorado and in position but But they give back a couple of other places but none of that matters when you when you think about. This is the biggest game of a weekend that that really because it's so early. I mean i'm still struggling to used these marquee noon. Kickoff matt that it sets the tone for the day as opposed to aware that game normally would have been should have been frankly in prime time where we waited all day for it and it. If you're an ohio state fan you don't remember anything else the rest of a day and if you're a fan of mario cristobal which i am you start thinking in your mind. Is he a nice job in in in taking over for willie taggart. is that right right. Well the dagger. What a name from the past. Yeah you know in our producer of the stars here travis. Rock oldies ohio state grants you know when when when you go to ohio state. You had that game you were put out of your misery by four o'clock you gotta just move onto other things but it is studying to me in a season. Where and big picture of this. Look without gabon. Tiptoe strive got four. Am brain without came montijo in this game. You thought okay. There's no way they're going to be able to stop ohio. State's offense ohio states defenseless can be able to shut down anthony brown. Jaber down the rest of this offense but when you look at the big picture with what comes out of this we've already seen clemson lose a game and we've already seen ohio state lose a game. And what did we say at. The beginning of the season is the same four teams every year. Alabama clemson ohio state oklahoma in now two of those teams. Paul already suffered a loss in week. Two met i. It just goes to show you that even though We get paid the same. The the pundits are having a bad early two weeks because Yeah i can't tell you how many conversations i had may june already figuring out the playoffs and already having those two in and i think it's great Cinch pretty obvious to playoff. Expansion is not happening anytime soon. And i say that twenty four hours removed from lacey conversation with gregg sankey of the sec and on that committee We are going to see a different look. And i think that's that's good for the game and i'm not saying ohio state can't find a way back although they're going to need many horses and seeing eye dogs to help them because we're because right now. They are struggling team and a couple of people Criticize them after that thursday night. Game against minnesota and people people push Don't worry about it. Were there was plenty to see in that game that you're portended this. And you mentioned tibidow. The idea of them winning the game without him as is mind. Boggling fees the first overall. Pick and jesse joey and i were talking yesterday. About geena came on wisely playing. Could he played and my thoughts on this paul. He's number one overall pick. Based on a small body of work we saw against fresno state. You could probably argue a heisman trophy candidate. If you're mario cristobal. You're thinking you know what this is a big national stage for us. Then everything would be right in front of us in the pac twelve to go in the conference and back in this conversation so for cristobal too. I don't wanna say gambling. Because i really don't know the status of his overall health for grits to sit him and they were out without one of their other best defenders and then go in there and get the win. You have to start wondering now is this a case of as you said. Ohio state didn't look great against minnesota they to the second half by the way minnesota guy everything they could yesterday but is this a case of oregon being better than we thought or ohio state. Not being as good as we thought i am going to attend a little. Bit toward oregon. Here that's only because all of your ohio state fans have told me how great they are and you have to believe fans don't you so another thing to point out and that that's a play selection of joe moorhead who i- maligned often as the mississippi state head coach where we forgot. What a good job he had done at penn state and and how they stay they were hurting after he left. And he's a brilliant offensive play caller and all all all the scenarios in. This is one of the thing. I like about this Is this really exercise. Some of the demons of two years ago. Remember that opening weekend when oregon flat out blue a game win against against auburn And it cost him dearly Probably cost him a tie. A playoff spot that you're so i it's still. It's still a little hard to to to put your teeth into what's wrong at ohio state other than some of the obvious fundamental situations that we've seen for two weeks they can still find a way back but i will say that. There's a team from iowa this lurking. Here's what we know about the big ten on sunday morning is is we kind of. Don't know we think we do. We still believe that. Ohio state is the best team in the conference. Michigan gets the win against washington. We knew that was common because washington was just one of those teams that had a ranking to them that didn't belong in and the athletes are different. I say this over and over and over again just watching yesterday watching sixteen hours of football the athletes at ohio state. that's it can light debt. Sprite tack on stay awake watch. Hawaii play But the athletes. That ohio state trots out. There are still different than the ones that michigan puts out. There are still different than the ones. I will puts out there in iowa. Got the win and cy hawk. There's still different. And they're still the best team in the big ten. How far that goes towards the end of the season. The thing that remains to be seeing yeah again. I don't think we can. We can solve anything else from ohio state right now until the season plays out and i know that that's disappointing to the hot. Take twitter verse. But i am not going to I mean last week. Many were burying clemson. But it wasn't because of clemes and it was because of the acc. It's not as easy to bury house eight. Although the home loss is is pretty bad You compare that to a neutral site game. But i don't think though. I don't think the game this game per se is going to cost ohio state down the road. I think if they run the table and win the big ten That will correct itself but it still a lot to digest. And it's it's a it's just one of those inexplicable moments that it wasn't so much that we didn't think it could happen. It was just we. We're just conditioned under ryan day to think that he'll find ways to things that urban meyer didn't urban meyer loss games on the road. Losing a well. Let me correct myself. He calls himself a national championship. In two thousand fifteen. Losing the michigan state at home. But i just didn't see that happening first time. Ohio state history that they've given up at least thirty points in the first two games of the season and as i look at their schedule paul they've got tulsa got akron and they hop into big ten play again at rutgers maryland at indiana which is no longer a good game based on what i you did early seasonal as they find their way back the only ranked game as of this morning that sits on their schedule is penn state at home and so i'm gonna apply the same logic to the ohio state argument on sunday as we did last week to clemson may were in a slug fight with georgia. We looked at clemson schedule. Like where are they going to get the quality win so parliament asking the base. Mosquitoes legis reggie there at michigan. The annual rivalry game michigan state. Looks good mel tucker your to they want a couple of games will wears this quality. Wind gonna come now from ohio. State based on what's left best shot would be the big ten championship game. And that's a long way off. But i think that's really it and that that would probably trump an acc championship game. But i i. I i think if we learned anything man we frankly didn't learn because we're talking about right now that we probably should quit doing college football playoff calculus in september i. It doesn't work very well and it's not stop us but i that would be my only answer to you that if it all plays out like the predictor seo will then they'll they'll have one decent game two to mark during the season and quite frankly At the what iowa will what will what do you think they could be ranked by the end of the year. yeah in they just keep winning spencer. Patriots looked good yesterday. In that cy hawk. They've now beaten iowa state six consecutive times and with the cycle. Every year i buy into the mat. Campbell mystique follows common back brock parties coming back. Xavier huts higher tight end room. The lime. everybody's coming back. And i just don't know what it is about him. I want that feel good story. But it doesn't appear that we're gonna get it again because of an early season mishap. No and i don't know how many times Somebody tried to convince me or probably you that i will stay with a playoff team and i i was showing some college football elitism by about laughing at it and i'm going to continue to laugh at it. We were trying to figure it out like what is it like. Why is it and look. I don't want to take anything away. From what matt campbell's built in ames because the vada toll you five years ago that iowa iowa state would be a featured game on saturday with kyle is game day parking. The bus there we to laugh at each other so it's still to a point where it is a good story but in time of program gets an opportunity on a national stage to make you believe and then they do just the opposite you almost go back to the mindset. You were because you you're again you're told hey they're here and then you watch the game for three and a half hours you know like well. That's that was an adorable storyline. But they're not. You don't get a moment like that. Very often i can. I don't i don't choose the sites of game day but the is going back to iowa state anytime in my lifetime is not good. I mean that is that is your moment You have to. Ucf game day. A couple of years memphis had gained. You win those games. Because you don't get those eyeballs. And quite frankly i don't really care about iowa state the rest of the way you can prop them up and say oh. Well that's going to be a great game You got oklahoma and all these spare me the conversation. I'm officially done with iowa state. I've been over hyped too much on that program. We've invested a lot of emotion in them. So as chris leak that bear from college game day. He's been trying to tell anyone who listened to the dark horse darkhorse but now iowa kirk ferrets they continue to be the dominant program and the state of iowa and i love peaking at the schedule in the early part of the season. Is i peek at iowa schedule. I'm always looking like who's going to be that team. They've got kent state next week. Colorado state then they hop back into big ten play against maryland on the road but much like ohio state their first real test again is against penn state and then right now on their schedule the only other ranked game they have at the moment. This means by them is out wisconsin. So as i peruse some of these big ten schedules. I'm paula up. I'm looking at it. And i'm trying to figure out. What kind of resume is this. Conference gonna have by november. What what Who is this league. What is this league. The dominant program in this league just got thumped by a pack. Twelve team scored nine indicative of what we saw. What is the big ten here as we sit here on september twelve well a new to help iowa certainly as a standard bearer. I'm not ready to To call penn state. I mean they'll have a big weekend coming up on in the national spotlight. And that's good and you know going out saturday. Night and beating auburn Is not going to advance your cause very much matt. They'll have to win a columbus. So i think it comes down to those three and i know some in ann arbor. Are you not forgetting the most obvious. Yes we are know. Good for for jim harbaugh to win on a national stage. It's been a long time since i remember that happening. But you know that game. That game was devalued before it began because of what happened to washington the week before. Yeah and you wanted it at. I was excited coming into the week. Because you know to rose bowl. Matchups pac twelve big ten washington michigan. Ohio state oregon. You'd love to see these on new year's day in pasadena may split. Pac twelve got one big ten. Got one as we move along to week.

Arkansas texas steve sarkisian feel-good story week one getting the wedding louisiana. Sam pittman continues to change things there at arkansas. This is going to be an sec. Game coming up texas one a bit of. Espn they wanted the taste of the sec. And paul. After saturday night taxes got a taste of the sec and they didn't even get it from one of the better teams in the league with all due respect to arkansas. They're still on their way up and top to bottom texas. Got be no. I spent the weekend in. Fayetteville matt and while the enthusiasm was high and the hatred towards texas Never dies This this isn't even a middle of the road going into the season. A middle of the road. sec team. I mean we're talking about in over the sec Two years ago. With chad morris and and last year three wins. Which really should have been more but i have to give sam pittman the credit. I mean he. He's an an unorthodox head football coach at a major school. You had likable guy who probably had one shot ahead in any any. He hit the lottery and he's made the most of it and i'm not saying he. His season is done But beating texas. Matt it's hard to explain how important that is. This is a an intense rivalry and they look good. Doing it. just wasn't just a a bad field goal that hit the upright and dropped over. I mean they. They just pounded texas. They eviscerated the longhorns and as far as what is next for texas. I think we we read way way way too much into louisiana that that was a good team last year the clearly a totally different species this year and in arkansas. It's going to win a few games but what was most important is. They're they're building program and they had eight thousand recruits in for that game and they'll they'll benefit from it as well. Yeah what was it like there fan. I've been there a couple of times and you could for people who've never been to fade bill or on the campus of arkansas. I will tell you that area. That northwest corridor of arkansas. Those facilities in that area. You think well house arkansas crew get kid that campus in those facilities in that stadium in you forget that this was once a very proud football program with good lineage. It they can. Just get that thing resuscitated. You've got another problem in the sec west. I think arkansas has always been one of the really good jobs with perhaps too high of expectations pot. What were people saying throughout the week while you were there. There were optimistic but they knew. And even sam pittman told me this yesterday that you know that they have. They have a long way to go from a recruiting standpoint. but but here's where they had the advantage. They have an advantage moving forward when when you're on that campus. That there are no distractions. It's arkansas basketball great too. I mean it really is They've won championships in basketball. But it looks wonderful. It's a one it's a one sport state. there's nothing else other than the university of arkansas. And secondly it's one of the most misunderstood areas areas of the country. I mean you think about fayetteville like man that's gotta be. You know like a one horse town wrong when you fly into fayetteville you you land in a place called rogers arkansas which is thirty miles out and you ask yourself why in the world with the university of arkansas. Have an airport thirty miles out. Well let me tell you why you go on this country road from the airport about four miles and you land in bentonville arkansas. Which is the headquarters of walmart. And that's what makes that town tick. You just have no earthly idea. The engine that that fuels north west arkansas. Because i don't want to go. I can do a whole like i'm trying to sell you on our on walmart. But walmart's the biggest retail company in the world and if you are a vendor for walmart and you live in hartford connecticut you move to north west arkansas. Because they're not coming to see you in hartford you're setting up shop right there because it's so big and it's so expansive and there's also a couple of other fortune five hundred companies tyson chicken yet and it just so happens that those two are big benefactors of the university of arkansas anywhere in the stadium and not see their signs and i'm just wondering With nfl having landed. How many how. Many young are arkansas. Football players will be doing something this week for walmart. Yeah i love you guys. Were there in we kind of branston to this discussion. Because you're right People rightfully who haven't been there wouldn't know they wouldn't know that there's a ton of money in north west arkansas. It is one of the most affluent well to do areas in anywhere. Forget arkansas. it's just too good looking area and with tyson and walmart you. You're talking about two major major major major billion dollar corporations that are sitting there next to what could be a power school in every sport imaginable. And you got one more billionaire to mention who was there who was there and you know. Yeah yeah jerry jones. He was part of the sixty four national championship. Team with jimmy johnson. And it's you're talking a lot of money. So i know we went off five minutes. It sounded like you know we're doing wall street week here but you have to understand in this current culture of college football moneymatters money does matter and sometimes we'll get into this and there's always arguments because i'm gonna i'm gonna hit. This is paul with the lack of sleep. I got you just amazed by the segue. I'm to give you. But sometimes in coaching we fall victim to sizzle over substance. No one in their right mind unless you are connected with the program understood who. Why and what. Sam pittman was doing getting this job. No-one we were like oh okay that you know if you knew arkansas football you knew passed you new coach there okay. Good story simpson's back but you're thinking well wait a second. You're going to hire this guy. That's a virtual unknown to run an sec program with a lot of money attached to it. That's the steps the substance. You know what this is. All higher was a couple of years ago when willie taggart buried florida state. It was mike norval in all of some. You have a team. I have never seen. I can't remember the last time a program or a school gave away goodwill from week. One and a loss like florida state. Mike nobel did against jacksonville state last night in one of the most inexplicable endings to a game that i've ever seen. Yeah and i think we can quickly remove man. It was like a disney movie. Sunday night with milton. Mackenzie milton and you felt bobby bowden in the stadium. Okay we heard it. Don't bring it up again because there's no excuse and that everyone by now has seen the video. I'm just trying to figure out those two defenders who all they had to do with sneeze and tackle this guy. What were they thinking or are they doing in town them. I mean you give up a big pass. Understandable your plane premium but come on. The effort was disgraceful. That's coaching i effort in leading. We were onset getting ready. Doing halftime of the byu utah game. Get ready to do that. We're we're getting ready for college. Football final in our producer in our ear. And he's like you guys are never going to be what happened. We had the tv on joey. Jesse and the tv's in the monitors and he says to us this executive says to us or watch the replay. He says jacksonville state. Just beat florida state on a hail. Mary and so. We're already entertained by her. Watch the replay. I've never seen gallo at this time of night. Be so animated in my life when he said that wasn't the last player like what are you talking about it. Because that wasn't a hail. Mary was well no no. It wasn't a hail mary. He could not believe that in fact it wasn't it was a normal play with florida state man to man coverage in the final. Play the game getting beat and not being able to tackle a receiver from jacksonville state to end a game. No you're right and by the way couple years ago jack state almost beat. Fsu and they. I think they lost it on last split-second kick or something and you know jacksonville. State has got a good football reputation. But i'm not building up. I'm just saying that you cannot take any and it's one thing not to take a school like that seriously at the beginning of the game. But you're down to the final play. Maybe show some intensity as it looked like flag football. Yeah let me just reach out and you get within three inches guy. But they deserve to lose and it's just one more black mark against The acc and we. I just monday afternoon on our show. At all i heard from. Fsu fans man. The spirit of bobby. Don't watch out for us clemson better. Yeah no no. None of us need to watch out for you anymore. Yeah if you peel that back. A little deeper. I thought just pure effort wise. What florida state deal with. Notre dame was great. Look good for them but if you started peeling back some of the layers of decisions that were made in that game and you really really really paid attention new questioned mike norville going for fourth down so early in that game which ended up being the difference. You questioned him doing that. review that ended up icing his own kicker who ended up missing the field goal that ended up being the difference and so while there is a positive body of work to go off of. You saw decisions in gaming. It's notre dame moore. Bell made you take pause and then all of the seed season sudden. You see what happened. Last night i was. I was trying to the last time we team. That was such a feel good story waking up on sunday morning. And you're like you know what this is worse than we actually thought there are. There are a lot of major upsets in in college football history. Where the next week. The team blows it but they usually don't blow it to jacksonville state so that another black guy for the acc. When you had an opportunity to to to make that palate taste a little better. After week one pin goes into your alma mater. Tennessean gets a win a four hour game. It was fun to watch it with no tainting to watch. I don't think there's any argument that ended. Hooker needs to be the quarterback at tennessee. Moving forward and i saw joe milton. Look joe milk to create a player. If i was going to create an athlete on a video game. I'd make him look like joe milton. He just can't connect with wide receiver. He overthrows just about everybody. Yeah that was as you look not to spend much more time this season on tennessee but it but as you look at their schedule This was the most important game On the schedule because it was really the only way they get to being eligible Because they're not going to be. Florida georgia alabama. Just go right down. The list of of of kentucky probably So so this was their mom and they let it get away in a game. They should want and honored. Johnny majors and johnny majors won national championship at pitt and he got fired at tennessee. Figure that one out for yourself. Yeah it was one of those big. It was a. It was a weeks later games. And we had to find one or two that would entertain us and that was one of them in one of those teams in the in the. Acc that keep an eye on because they've got a really good nfl quarterback and pick it. Seems like he's been there for a decade. But we're we're trying to get the point of the season. Paul through two weeks Trying to find a team here in a team there who can make things difficult for one of these ranks teams. I dunno kit it. Maybe i thought. Nc state was going to be it and then they go to starkville and just get their teeth kicked in that has to be one of the most disappointing losses on the board. Because that's a team that the acc acolytes were trying to make all of us believe was was legit and they you know they. They got run by team that that needed a field goal the previous week to be what it was that louisiana. One of louisiana's louisiana tech. I'm sorry there's so many down there So i really gave him. Mississippi state life which You know they have lsu coming in two weeks. So they're they're they're they're playing but then you know nc state. You can't take them too seriously anymore. And again i genuinely feel badly for jim phillips a new commissioner of the acc has to be wondering what he got himself into. When you look at. And i'm not going to get into miami. They were celebrating beating appalachian state like they had just done. Something is that gourmets on the most frustrating teams in america. I just cannot figure. Out how the state of florida if you really want to dive down this rabbit hole and i guess we will since we've already started looking at the premier programs in the state of florida miami with what they've got going on florida's state those two teams look at the state of the state of those programs and poets. It sat with florida state. Miami miami once again we bought into false streams with them and they just. I don't think it's a disastrous program. I think there certainly ahead of wherever she was right now but it is a sad state and florida. Now's is another story that is about to become center because the gators are you telling me Hosting the biggest game of the weekend such a good segue because we do get to that with florida. They got out of their game yesterday. They go and now. It's florida alabama week. Alabama took care of mercer forty eight to fourteen barring health issues. Dan mullen has a very interesting decision to make a quarterback because based on what we saw from anthony richardson. Yesterday he came up. He was limited a little bit. After that touchdown run for the kid was three of three hundred fifty yards two touchdowns throwing four carries hundred fifteen yards and a touchdown rushing paul. It's no secret kids from gainesville. It's a good story. The offense just moves better with anthony. Richardson and now. I think john mullin has to make a decision. Not only for this week against alabama but going forward for the rest of the series with the sec east. Yeah and everything. I'm telling you now is courtesy of tim. Tebow because of hurt him now two straight weeks in meetings talk about anthony. Richardson just think of tim. Tebow and in two thousand and six as the understudy. Chris league who helped win a national championship coming in situationally and tibo has been raving about him. But at this point you're right Does dan mullen make the call and put him in. This called her. And against against alabama. The one thing i will say about alabama and i don't know the injury situation. They lost key player last week anderson. They're all world player got banged up and he is questionable. That's a big deal. I mean he is. He's the best player on their defense. Which is saying something. And i i know the story in alabama has been saving going off and everyone is was complimenting. Saying yeah you know. It's a good thing he went off. What did the teen listened to him. Matt i'm wondering sometimes. Are these ranchers going on deaf ears. It's fat right now. I mean look forty eight fourteen against mercer and that it's not you don't look at it's alabama dated to beat miami forty four. Thirteen beat mercer forty eight fourteen. Would you get out of it. Yeah and both games they were they. Were you know. They gave up cheap touchdowns at the end. And that's understandable. I think that irritates sabin but the only way to overcome that is the lead your starters in which you don't wanna do. I think you expected that last week. And this is a very big game. And it's i. I know that sounds every game with alabama's a big game but a lot of florida people began the you're thinking they had a real shot at tied. And and you know. Most of the focus was on the game on october ninth. There's not may not be as much on that. But i think the confusion of quarterback In is is a serious problem for the gators It's at the swamp i mean. Do you think you think they've got a shot at this juncture. I think is going to be difficult. I just i just firmly believe in the only way. I thought they could win. This game early on was if bryce young shaky in the miami game and just simply was not developing. But i don't think that's really the issue right now. Yeah it'll be really that. I now that first will taste of sec football that we get this the three thirty kick on cbs. That's the prime. Do they get the the best. Pick so alabama at florida you learn a lot about some of these teams in the early part of the season. But it's funny. Because you and i both worked for florida quarterbacks. I've got a handsome jesse palmer that i deal with every weekend. He was a quarterback. Obviously under steve spurrier and he's been saying the same thing. So if you've got heisman trophy. College football legend who walks on gainesville water and tibo. And then i've got palmer saying the same thing. I mean you would think at this point eight mullen but again. Barring held his hamstring's okay. This morning pull the trigger. Let's roll and maybe you have some because how many times we've seen at paul. You go into a season with best laid plans with your starting quarterback all of the season all of a sudden you find this gem that just gives your team that little extra boost. Yeah i i think was this. If this game had been in tuscaloosa i might think otherwise. But but i think you can gamble making the call at home. It's not that difficult. And i knowing dan mullen. I'll be surprised. Dan mullen is for for all of his genius he. He's pretty conservative. Sometimes and i. I'm not sure i'm going to see him. Make that change. I think he he hell. The the injuries situation is probably the key for richardson. If he's not one hundred percent. I don't i don't think you'll see him start and i think he's i think it. I don't want to waste a possession against alabama but i'd almost rather see jones at least start the game and see what he can do as opposed to letting urging the other guy going there and just bomb not that he would but he could play alabama's defense home home away or in the walmart. Parking lot is not a good recipe. You know in in in coaches love doing this all the time. They love keeping the other coach stamp off balance rights. Now nick sabin is going to have to guess is going to be mraz. It going to be anthony. So i can't wait to watch thanks. We got our first full taste of sec football. The weekend you'd mentioned taxonomy. I wanna touch on them briefly before Get mad here with one final thought. I don't think that hanes king injuries gonna work out well. I think it's a little bit more severe than we know. At least on this sunday. I do want to point out tape in the sunday morning until there's probably going to be more news that comes out about this injury after we're done taping zach. Cal zodda looks too big for the moment. The mobile look too big for that causa. This hanes king injury makes texas am average at best for the rest of the season if he's out for the year. Yeah i was in you know give credit i mean he. He did come up with the play that one the game but the play the one the game on the road against colorado is is not the same as you know coming up with plays In baton rouge your At home against alabama. So you know all the credit in the world but let's get to reality here Is a team that that is going to be devalued right now while we watch and see how they handle it. they have arkansas before alabama. I know i know they're fans have only looked at the alabama game. But you know they'll they'll they're not going to see a lot of competition but they will see arkansas and i agree with you You know he was. He was hard to watch at times. And and hopefully king will come back all by the way. Even a healthy king had not been very good this year so he was not an anyone ties with race but they keep paying jimbo they keep paying jimbo and the quarterback luke haines might end up being good as young as a highly rated recruit. But this guy's the quarterback guy needs quarterback well unfortunately in college football. You just can't go to the waiver. Wire this is his guy. And i had people tell me that he wanted to get him in a year ago against kellyn monde instead of. Keller mom you just couldn't pull kellerman. Kellerman was the first college football. I eight year starter. I think matt and finally jimbo is telling people we finally got our guy. He's going to be great and and he has not been so. Yeah i i worry. A little bit about am Time could help them. Though with the schedule being more middle middle middle of the season versus right now. I don't remember why i read. This could be on one of those. You know southern football blogs that. I go down every week just to just get a finger the poles but there are something that iran and you would know more than i am keeps extending our extended jimbo Have to to make his salary even higher because they see lsu struggling and they're all paranoid that let's just say coach l. Just doesn't make it that they're they're paranoid of lsu coach jimbo fisher's is at an actual thing. It's funny you would ask me of all people to speculate on on speculation May i'll explain it very succinctly if i can Five years ago. Lsu thought it had hired jimbo fisher Remember the story got out. And jimbo's agent jimmy sexton to represents. Almost everyone felt like they needed money. Lsu balked jimbo backed away and they got stuck with less miles. All of a sudden less could do they. Texas story was bouncing off the walls. So they less comes back losers wisconsin. He's fired four games later. And by that point jimbo was was not interested What happened what happened next. There is a conclusion of the story. All you were ready to go out and do something. Scott woodward higher jimbo fisher for seven million dollars a year at texas. Am let me ask the classic question. Where does scott woodward. Currently reside the answer is baton. Rouge at lsu. There there there there you have the puzzle solved about why the next athletic director. Ross bjork gave jimbo the contract extension and it's fascinating because in the coaching world. And you're right. Jimmy sexton controls the coaching world. You always leave this extent. Fans far away like widely extending the sky the famous Remember from a couple years ago as well must champ getting extended it south carolina after having a an average season at best. And he's no longer the head coach dan so these one more one more on the on the extension meter. Yeah i'll i'll i'll raise you will muschamp which made no sense and give you a jeremy pruitt at tennessee getting a contract extension after two miserable years. I don't know why they don't get held more accountable. They being the administration. That does these because it is just you strap yourself. Then you get yourself into a bigger by out and then you're financially strapped because you give a coach who hasn't done much more money all right and finally you got to say you got the same agent jimmy sexton in the final thing on that before you go. These athletic directors on unfortunately make too many decisions by reading twitter. Wow social media continues to be the downfall of society. I think we knew that coming in paul. You know how. I am on a on a bold statement. I made the bold statement about ucla. I'm still riding high on that. When i'm gonna hold on on that but here's my bold statement. Is we send everyone off on their first. Nfl sunday the season. I'm telling you. I am telling you. Watch out for auburn. Got penn state this week college game day parking the boss. Sean penn state and auburn. They look bone knicks. They looked so different in this bryant. Hartson offense first time in program history. They've scored sixty points and free two games of the season. I'm telling you watch out for auburn. Well there. I am not going to laugh at it because you can't argue with success. You can argue with the competition but they will be severely tested this weekend and and i think for a golly bo knicks. He's he's never had confidence. He won his first game against oregon. And after that it was a it was a it was a roller coaster. Ride because gus malzahn was not very expressive when it comes to creativity. I'm not. I'm not dismissing it. I'm also not agreeing with it. Because look i know is alabama state. And i know they were going to win. But here's what. I posed to jesse and joey when i said this yesterday. Just watch out for auburn. 'cause they look really good. What would a gus. Malzahn team had done against alabama state. What would a gus malzahn. Coach team has done in this game. Yesterday there would have been a sloppy game Probably like the alabama mercer game right. And what do they do. They go in there step up in their throat. Sixty two nothing make it zero doubt going into by the way. The penn state game mouth zona malzahn coach team could've made this game. Sloppy gone into a big gang. Team was ahead. I don't know there's something about all new. Well it's a different mindset. He's got very good coordinators. And mike bobo and enduring mason. Who came over from vanderbilt and hartson is a motive on the most serious minded coaches. I've ever met the guy he was he was doing a good job at boise. This is not somebody who just got hired off the waiver. Wire i mean this is. This is a coach so is going places. So that's the big game coming up in week. Three as always look sunday morning when you download this we appreciate you. Listen to it that we both have long saturdays. Paul's traveling all of the south to get back home. Ahmed bristowe from eleven thirty am till about two forty am so a little slow with our thoughts on sunday mornings with coffee kick and end the bloody marys get made. We're gonna get through this together. Paul we've got fourteen weeks left of this. Yeah no. I'm good. I i sometimes i. I've had people who listen back and go man that. What were you thinking. And and the answer is we weren't. Here's what you're going to get on sunday. You're going to get complete exhaustion honesty. Which a lot of times. It's hard to get the most people so we appreciate down. We appreciate list will be here each in every sunday. Mornin and gimme one bold prediction before next sunday to give me a good one. Yeah i think. We're going to find out about alabama in gainesville for the first two weeks. We've gotten false reads. I'm not predicting anything yet. But but i think i think alabama the curtain will be Brought either up or down on them in terms of their greatness you know could they get exposed or do they go down there and just pound florida and make a statement and leave no doubt i love celts.

Quack, quack, quack Mr. Cristobal

"Espn college football. Podcast hosted by paul finebaum. Matt berry. I yes it is sunday tradition. Unlike any other it is the espn college football podcast. Five days a week. We get started here on sunday. Mornings with paul finebaum berry. Hopefully you're having a cup of coffee ice spicy. Bloody mary whatever. You're doing to wash down at your saturday of college football. Good morning. how are you. I am doing great man. I was just Participating myself since someone else's talking to me today that When was the last time. Jim harbaugh was smiling and ohio. State fans were frowning. It's been a while yet. you know. That's a great place to kick this thing off because it was the game of the week to slate than otherwise let a lot to be desired and it was oregon traveling into the shoe to take on ohio state. Oh and nine against ohio state was oregon ryan. Dad never lost a regular season game. Twenty three marino and paul. We sit here sunday morning. And here's a sentence is probably even more bizarre than what you just said. What a day. And what a win for the pac twelve. They've had some you know they. They've had some very impressive. Wednesday almost had an even more amazing day with a colorado and in position but But they give back a couple of other places but none of that matters when you when you think about. This is the biggest game of a weekend that that really because it's so early. I mean i'm still struggling to used these marquee noon. Kickoff matt that it sets the tone for the day as opposed to aware that game normally would have been should have been frankly in prime time where we waited all day for it and it. If you're an ohio state fan you don't remember anything else the rest of a day and if you're a fan of mario cristobal which i am you start thinking in your mind. Is he a nice job in in in taking over for willie taggart. is that right right. Well the dagger. What a name from the past. Yeah you know in our producer of the stars here travis. Rock oldies ohio state grants you know when when when you go to ohio state. You had that game you were put out of your misery by four o'clock you gotta just move onto other things but it is studying to me in a season where and big picture of this look without gabon. Thibault strive got four. Am brain without came montijo in this game. You thought okay. There's no way they're going to be able to stop ohio. State's offense ohio states defenseless can be able to shut down anthony brown. Jaber down the rest of this offense but when you look at the big picture with what comes out of this we've already seen clemson lose a game and we've already seen ohio state lose a game. And what did we say at. The beginning of the season is the same four teams every year. Alabama clemson ohio state oklahoma in now two of those teams. Paul already suffered a loss in week. Two met i. It just goes to show you that even though We get paid the same. The the pundits are having a bad early two weeks because Yeah i can't tell you how many conversations i had may june already figuring out the playoffs and already having those two in and i think it's great Since it's pretty obvious to playoff expansion is not happening anytime soon. And i say that twenty four hours removed from lacey conversation with gregg sankey of the sec and on that committee. We are going to see a different look. And i think that's that's good for the game. And i'm not saying ohio state can't find a way back although they're going to need many horses and seeing eye dogs to help them because we're because right now they are struggling team and a couple of people Criticize them after that thursday night. Game against minnesota and people people push Don't worry about it. Were there was plenty to see in that game that you're portended this. And you mentioned tibidow. The idea of them winning the game without him as is mind. Boggling fees the first overall. Pick and jesse joey and i were talking yesterday. About geena came on wisely playing. Could he played and my thoughts on this. Paul is number one overall pick. Based on a small body of work we saw against fresno state. You could probably argue a heisman trophy candidate. If you're mario cristobal. You're thinking you know what this is a big national stage for us. Then everything would be right in front of us in the pac twelve to go in the conference and back in this conversation so for cristobal too. I don't wanna say gambling. Because i really don't know the status of his overall health for grits to sit him and they were out without one of their other best defenders and then go in there and get the win. You have to start wondering now is this a case of as you said. Ohio state didn't look great against minnesota. They needed the second half by the way minnesota guy everything they could yesterday but is this a case of oregon being better than we thought or ohio state. Not being as good as we thought. I am going to attend a little bit toward oregon here. That's only because all of your ohio state fans have told me how great they are and you have to believe fans don't you so another thing to point out and that that's a play selection of joe moorhead who i- maligned often as the mississippi state head coach where we forgot what a good job he had done at penn state and and how they stay they were hurting after he left and he's a brilliant offensive play caller and all all all the scenarios in this is one of the thing. I like about this Is this really exercise. Some of the demons of two years ago. Remember that opening weekend when oregon flat out blue a game win against against auburn And it cost him dearly Probably cost him a tie. A playoff spot that you're so i it's still. It's still a little hard to to to put your teeth into what's wrong at ohio state other than some of the obvious fundamental situations that we've seen for two weeks they can still find a way back but i will say that. There's a team from iowa this lurking. Here's what we know about the big ten on sunday morning is is we kind of. Don't know we think we do. We still believe that. Ohio state is the best team in the conference. Michigan gets the win against washington. We knew that was common because washington just one of those teams that had a ranking to them that didn't belong in and the athletes are different. I say this over and over and over again just watching yesterday watching sixteen hours of football the athletes at ohio state. that's it can light debt. Sprite tack on stay awake watch. Hawaii play But the athletes. That ohio state trots out. There are still different than the ones that michigan puts out. There are still different than the ones. I will puts out there in iowa. Got the win and cy hawk. There's still different. And they're still the best team in the big ten. How far that goes towards the end of the season. The thing that remains to be seeing yeah again. I don't think we can. We can solve anything else from ohio state right now until the season plays out and i know that that's disappointing to the hot. Take twitter verse. But i am not going to I mean last week. Many were burying clemson. But it wasn't because of clemes and it was because of the acc. It's not as easy to bury house eight. Although the home loss is is pretty bad You compare that to a neutral site game. But i don't think though. I don't think the game this game per se is going to cost ohio state down the road. I think if they run the table and win the big ten That will correct itself but it still a lot to digest. And it's it's a it's just one of those inexplicable moments that it wasn't so much that we didn't think it could happen. It was just we. We're just conditioned under ryan day to think that he'll find ways to things that urban meyer didn't urban meyer loss games on the road. Losing a well. Let me correct myself. He calls himself a national championship. In two thousand fifteen. Losing the michigan state at home. But i just didn't see that happening first time in ohio state history that they've given up at least thirty points in the first two games of the season and as i look at their schedule paul they've got tulsa got akron and they hop into big ten play again at rutgers maryland at indiana which is no longer a good game based on what i you did early seasonal as they find their way back the only ranked game as of this morning that sits on their schedule is penn state at home. And so i'm gonna apply the same logic to the ohio state argument on sunday as we did last week to clemson may were in a slug fight with georgia. We looked at clemson schedule. Like where are they going to get the quality win so parliament asking the base. Mosquitoes legis reggie there at michigan. The annual rivalry game michigan state. Looks good mel tucker your to they want a couple of games will wears this quality. Wind gonna come now from ohio. State based on what's left best shot would be the big ten championship game. And that's a long way off. But i think that's really it and that that would probably trump an acc championship game. But i i. I i think if we learned anything man we frankly didn't learn because we're talking about right now that we probably should quit doing college football playoff calculus in september i. It doesn't work very well and it's not stop us but i that would be my only answer to you that if it all plays out like the predictor seo will then they'll they'll have one decent game two to mark during the season and quite frankly At the what iowa will what will what do you think they could be ranked by the end of the year. Yeah in that they just keep winning. Spencer patriots looked good yesterday. In that cy hawk. They've now beaten iowa state six consecutive times and with the cycle every year i buy into the mat campbell. Mystique repulse common back. Brock parties coming back. Xavier huts higher tight. End room the lime. Everybody's coming back. And i just don't know what it is about him. I want that feel good story. But it doesn't appear that we're gonna get it again because of an early season mishap. No and i don't know how many times Somebody tried to convince me or probably you that i will stay with a playoff team and i i was showing some college football elitism by about laughing at it and i'm going to continue to laugh at it. We were trying to figure it out like what is it like. Why is it and look. I don't want to take anything away. From what matt campbell's built in ames because the vada told you five years ago that i iowa state would be a featured game on saturday with kyle is game day parking. The bus there we to at each other so it's still to a point where it is a good story but in time of program gets an opportunity on a national stage to make you believe and then they do just the opposite you almost go back to the mindset. You were because you you're again you're told hey they're here and then you watch the game for three and a half hours you know like well. That's that was an adorable storyline. But they're not. You don't get a moment like that. Very often i can. I don't i don't choose the sites of game day but the is going back to iowa state anytime in my lifetime is not good. I mean that is that is your moment You have to. Ucf game day. A couple of years memphis had gained. You win those games. Because you don't get those eyeballs. And quite frankly i don't really care about iowa state the rest of the way you can prop them up and say oh well that's going to be a great game. you gotta oklahoma and all these spare me the conversation. I'm officially done with iowa state. I've i've been over hyped too much on that program. We've invested a lot of emotion in them so as chris leak that bear from college. Game day he's been trying to tell anyone who listened to the dark horse darkhorse but now iowa kirk ferrets they continue to be the dominant program and the state of iowa and i love peaking at the schedule in the early part of the season. Is i peek at iowa schedule. I'm always looking like who's going to be that team. They've got kent state next week. Colorado state then they hop back into big ten play against maryland on the road but much like ohio state their first real test again is against penn state and then right now on their schedule the only other ranked game they have at the moment. Who knows what this means by them is out wisconsin. So as i peruse some of these big ten schedules. I'm paula up. I'm looking at it. And i'm trying to figure out. What kind of resume is this. Conference gonna have by november. What what Who is this league. What is this league. The dominant program in this league just got thumped by a pack. Twelve team scored nine indicative of what we saw. What is the big ten here as we sit here on september twelve well a new to help iowa certainly as a standard bearer. I mean i'm not ready to To call penn state. I mean they'll have a big weekend coming up on in the national spotlight. And that's good and you know going out saturday. Night and beating auburn Is not going to advance your cause very much matt. They'll have to win a columbus. So i think it comes down to those three and i know some in ann arbor saying. Are you not forgetting the most obvious. Yes we are good for for. Jim harbaugh to win on a national stage. It's been a long time since i remember that happening. But you know that game. That game was devalued before it began because of what happened to washington the week before. Yeah and you wanted it. I was excited coming into the week. Because you know to rose bowl. Matchups pac twelve big ten washington michigan. Ohio state oregon. You'd love to see these on new year's day in pasadena may split. Pac twelve got one big ten. Got one as we move along to week.

Sec nation was in fayetteville. Arkansas texas steve sarkisian feel-good story week one getting the wedding louisiana. Sam pittman continues to change things there at arkansas. This is going to be an sec. Game coming up texas one a bit of. Espn they wanted the taste of the sec. And paul. After saturday night taxes got taste the sec and they didn't even get it from one of the better teams in the league with all due respect to arkansas. They're still on their way up and top to bottom texas. Got be no. I spent the weekend in. Fayetteville matt and while the enthusiasm was high and the hatred towards texas Never dies This this isn't even a middle of the road going into the season. A middle of the road. sec team. I mean we're talking about in over the sec Two years ago. With chad morris and and last year three wins. Which really should have been more but i have to give sam pittman the credit. I mean he. He's an an unorthodox head football coach at a major school. You had likable guy who probably had one shot ahead in any any. He hit the lottery and he's made the most of it and i'm not saying he. His season is done But beating texas. Matt it's hard to explain how important that is. This is a an intense rivalry and they look good. Doing it. just wasn't just a a bad field goal that hit the upright and dropped over. I mean they. They just pounded texas. They eviscerated the longhorns and as far as what is next for texas. I think we we read way way way too much into louisiana that that was a good team last year the clearly a totally different species this year and in arkansas. It's going to win a few games but what was most important is. They're they're building program and they had eight thousand recruits in for that game and they'll they'll benefit from it as well. Yeah what was it like their fan. I've been there a couple of times and you could for people who've never been to bill or on the campus of arkansas. I will tell you that area. That northwest corridor of arkansas. Those facilities in that area. You think arkansas crew get kid that campus in those facilities in that stadium in you forget that this was once a very proud football program with good lineage. It they can just get that thing resuscitated. You've got another problem in the sec. West i think arkansas has always been one of the really good jobs with perhaps too high of expectations pot. What were people saying throughout the week while you were there. There were optimistic but they knew. And even sam pittman told me this yesterday that you know that they have. They have a long way to go from a recruiting standpoint. but but here's where they had the advantage. They have an advantage moving forward when when you're on that campus. That there are no distractions. It's arkansas basketball great too. I mean it really is They've won championships in basketball. But it looks wonderful. It's a one it's a one sport state. there's nothing else other than the university of arkansas. And secondly it's one of the most misunderstood areas areas of the country. I mean you think about fayetteville like man that's gotta be. You know like a one horse town wrong when you fly into fayetteville you you land in a place called rogers arkansas which is thirty miles out and you ask yourself why in the world with the university of arkansas. Have an airport thirty miles out. Well let me tell you why you go on this country road from the airport about four miles and you land in bentonville arkansas. Which is the headquarters of walmart. And that's what makes that town tick. You just have no earthly idea. The engine that that fuels north west arkansas. Because i don't want to go. I can do a whole like i'm trying to sell you on our on walmart. But walmart's the biggest retail company in the world and if you are a vendor for walmart and you live in hartford connecticut you move to north west arkansas. Because they're not coming to see you in hartford you're setting up shop right there because it's so big and so expansive there's also a couple of other fortune five hundred companies tyson chicken yet and it just so happens that those two are big benefactors of the university of arkansas. You can't go anywhere in the stadium and not see their signs. And i'm just wondering With nfl having landed. How many how. Many young are arkansas. Football players will be doing something this week for walmart. Yeah i love you guys. Were there in we kind of branston to this discussion. Because you're right People rightfully who haven't been there wouldn't know they wouldn't know that there's a ton of money in north west arkansas. It is one of the most affluent well to do areas in anywhere. Forget arkansas. it's just too good looking area and with tyson and walmart you. You're talking about two major major major major billion dollar corporations that are sitting there next to what could be a power school in every sport imaginable. And you got one more billionaire to mention who was there. Who was there. And you know elia jerry jones. He was part of the sixty four national championship. Team with jimmy johnson. And it's you're talking a lot of money. So i know we went off five minutes. It sounded like you know we're doing wall street week here but you have to understand in this current culture of college football moneymatters money does matter and sometimes we'll get into this and there's always arguments because i'm gonna i'm gonna hit. This is paul with the lack of sleep. I got you just amazed by the segue. I'm gonna give you. But sometimes in coaching we fall victim to sizzle over substance. No one in their right mind unless you are connected with the program understood who. Why and what. Sam pittman was doing getting this job. No-one we were like oh okay that you know if you knew arkansas football you knew as you new coach there okay. Good story simpson's back but you're thinking well wait a second. You're going to hire this guy. That's a virtual unknown to run an sec program with a lot of money attached to it. That's the steps the substance. You know what this is. All higher was a couple of years ago when willie taggart buried florida state. It was mike norval in all of some. You have a team. I never seen. I can't remember the last time a program or a school gave away goodwill from week. One and a loss like florida state. Mike nobel did against jacksonville state last night in one of the most inexplicable endings to a game that i've ever seen. Yeah and i think we can quickly remove man. It was like a disney movie. Sunday night with milton. Mackenzie milton and you felt bobby bowden in the stadium. Okay we heard it. Don't bring it up again because there's no excuse and that everyone by now has seen the video. I'm just trying to figure out those two defenders who all they had to do with sneeze and tackle this guy. What were they thinking or are they doing in town them. I mean you give up a big pass. Understandable your plane premium but come on. The effort was disgraceful. That's coaching i effort in leading. We were onset getting ready. Doing halftime of the byu utah game. Get ready to do that. We're we're get ready for college. Football final in our producer in our ear. And he's like you guys are never going to be what happened. We had the tv on joey. Jesse and the tv's in the monitors and he says to us this executive says to us or watch the replay. He says jacksonville state. Just beat florida state on a hail. Mary and so. We're already entertained by her. Watch the replay. I've never seen gallo at this time of night. Be so animated in my life when he said that wasn't the last player like what are you talking about it. Because that wasn't a hail. Mary was well no no. It wasn't a hail mary. He could not believe that in fact it wasn't it was a normal play with florida state man to man coverage in the final. Play the game getting beat and not being able to tackle a receiver from jacksonville state to end a game. No you're right and by the way couple years ago jack state almost beat. Fsu and they. I think they lost it on last split-second kick or something and you know jacksonville. State has got a good football reputation. But i'm not building up. I'm just saying that you cannot take any and it's one thing not to take a school like that seriously at the beginning of the game. But you're down to the final play. Maybe show some intensity as it looked like flag football. Yeah let me just reach out and you get within three inches guy. But they deserve to lose. And i. It's just one more black mark against The acc and we. I just monday afternoon on our show. At all i heard from. Fsu fans man. The spirit of bobby. Don't watch out for us clemson better. Yeah no no. None of us need to watch out for you anymore. Yeah and if you peel that back a little deeper. I thought just pure effort wise. What florida state deal with. Notre dame was great k. Look good for them but if you started peeling back some of the layers of decisions that were made in that game and you really really really paid attention new questioned mike norville going for fourth down so early in that game which ended up being the difference. You questioned him doing that Review that ended up icing his own kicker who ended up missing the field goal that ended up being the difference so while there is a positive body of work to go off of you saw decisions in gaming. It's notre dame moore bell made you take pause and then all of the season sudden you see what happened. Last night i was. I was trying to the last time we team. That was such a feel good story waking up on sunday morning. And you're like you know what this is worse than we actually thought there are. There are a lot of major upsets in college football history. Where the next week. The team blows it but they usually don't blow it to jacksonville state so that another black guy for the acc. When you had an opportunity to to to make that palate taste a little better. After week one pin goes into your alma mater. Tennessean gets a win a four hour game. It was fun to watch it with no tainting to watch. I don't think there's any argument that ended. Hooker needs to be the quarterback at tennessee. Moving forward and i saw joe milton. Look joe milk to create a player. If i was going to create an athlete on a video game. I'd make him look like joe milton. He just can't connect with a wide receiver. He overthrows just about everybody. Yeah that was as you look not to spend much more time this season on tennessee but it but as you look at their schedule This was the most important game On the schedule because it was really the only way they get to being bowl eligible Because they're not going to be. Florida georgia alabama. Just go right down. The list of of of kentucky probably So so this was their mom and they let it get away in a game. They should want and honored. Johnny majors and johnny majors won national championship at pitt and he got fired at tennessee. Figure that one out for yourself. Yeah it was one of those big. It was a. It was a weeks later games. And we had to find one or two that would entertain us and that was one of them in one of those teams in the in the. Acc that keep an eye on because they've got a really good nfl quarterback and pick it. Seems like he's been there for a decade. But we're we're trying to get the point of the season. Paul through two weeks Trying to find a team here in a team there who can make things difficult for one of these ranks teams. I dunno kit it. Maybe i thought. Nc state was going to be it and then they go to starkville and just get their teeth kicked in that has to be one of the most disappointing losses on the board. Because that's a team that the acc acolytes were trying to make all of us believe was was legit and then you know they. They got run by team that that needed a field goal the previous week to be what it was that louisiana. One of louisiana's louisiana tech. I'm sorry there's so many down there So i really gave him. Mississippi state life which You know they have lsu coming in two weeks or they're they're they're they're playing but then you know nc state. You can't take them too seriously anymore. And again i genuinely feel badly for jim phillips a new commissioner of the acc to be wondering what he got himself into. When you look at. And i'm not going to get into miami. They were celebrating beating appalachian state like they had just done. Something is that grim as one of the most frustrating teams in america. I just cannot figure. Out how the state of florida if you really want to dive down this rabbit hole and i guess we will since we've already started looking at the premier programs in the state of florida miami with what they've got going on florida's state team look at the state of the state of those programs and poets. It sat with where florida state. Miami miami once again we bought into false streams with them and they just. I don't think it's a disastrous program. I think they're certainly ahead of wherever she was right now but it is a sad state and florida. Now is another story that is about to become center stage. Because the gators. Are you telling me Hosting the biggest game of the weekend such a good segue because we do get to that with florida. They got out of their game yesterday. They go. and now. It's florida alabama week. Alabama took care of mercer forty eight to fourteen barring health issues. Dan mullen has a very interesting decision to make a quarterback because based on what we saw from anthony richardson. Yesterday he came up. He was limited a little bit. After that touchdown run for the kid was three of three hundred fifty yards two touchdowns throwing four carries hundred fifteen yards and a touchdown rushing paul. It's no secret kids from gainesville. It's a good story. The offense just moves better with anthony. Richardson and now. I think dan mullen has to make a decision. Not only for this week against alabama but going forward for the rest of the series with the sec east. Yeah and everything. I'm telling you now is courtesy of tim. Tebow because of hurt him now two straight weeks in meetings talk about anthony. Richardson just think of tim. Tebow and in two thousand and six as the understudy. Chris league who helped win a national championship coming in situationally and tibo has been raving about him. But at this point you're right Does dan mullen. Make the call. And put him in this cauldron against against alabama. The one thing. I will say about alabama and i don't know the injury situation. They lost a key player last week anderson. They're all world player. Got banged up and he is questionable. That's a big deal. I mean he is. He's the best player on their defense. Which is saying something. And i i know the story in alabama has been saving going off and everyone is was complimenting. Saying yeah you know. It's a good thing he went off. What did the teen listened to him. Matt i'm wondering sometimes. Are these ranchers going on deaf ears. It's fat right now. I mean look forty eight fourteen against mercer and that it's not you don't look at sale alabama dated to beat miami forty four thirteen beat mercer. Forty eight fourteen would get out of it. Yeah and both games they were they. Were you know. They gave up cheap touchdowns at the end. And that's understandable. I think that irritates sabin but the only way to overcome that is the lead your starters in which you don't wanna do. I think you expected that last week. And this is a very big game. And it's i. I know that sounds every game with alabama's a big game but a lot of florida people began the you're thinking they had a real shot at tied. And and you know. Most of the focus was on the game on october ninth. There's not may not be as much on that. But i think the confusion of quarterback In is is a serious problem for the gators It's at the swamp i mean. Do you think you think they've got a shot at this juncture. I think is going to be difficult. I just i just firmly believe in the only way. I thought they could win. This game early on was if bryce young shaky in the miami game and just simply was not developing. But i don't think that's really the issue right now. Yeah it'll be really that. I now that first will taste of sec football that we get this the three thirty kick on cbs. That's the prime. Do they get the the best. Pick so alabama at florida you learn a lot about some of these teams in the early part of the season. But it's funny. Because you and i both worked for florida quarterbacks. I've got a handsome jesse palmer That i deal with every weekend. He was a quarterback. Obviously under steve spurrier and he's been saying the same thing. So if you've got heisman trophy. College football legend who walks on gainesville water and tibo. And then i've got palmer saying the same thing. I mean you would think at this point eight mullen but again barring held hamstrings. Okay this morning. Pull the trigger. Let's roll and maybe you have some because how many times we've seen at paul. You go into a season with best laid plans with your starting quarterback all of the season all of a sudden you find this gem that just gives your team that little extra boost. Yeah i i think was this. If this game had been in tuscaloosa i might think otherwise. But but i think you can gamble making the call at home. It's not that difficult. And i knowing dan mullen i'll i'll be surprised. Dan mullen is for for all of his genius. He he's pretty conservative. Sometimes and i. I'm not sure i'm going to see him. Make that change. I think he he hell. The the injuries situation is probably the key for richardson. If he's not one hundred percent. I don't i don't think you'll see him start and i think he's i think it. I don't want to waste a possession against alabama but i'd almost rather see jones at least start the game and see what he can do as opposed to letting urging the other guy going there and just bomb not that he would but he could play alabama's defense home home away or in the walmart. Parking lot is not a good recipe. You know in in in coaches love doing this all the time. They love keeping the other coaching staff off balance rights. Now nick sabin is going to have to. Gas is going to be mraz. It going to be anthony. So i can't wait to watch thanks. We got our first full taste of sec football. The weekend you'd mentioned taxonomy. I wanna touch on them briefly before Get mad here with one final thought. I don't think that hanes king injuries gonna work out well. I think it's a little bit more severe than we know. At least on this sunday. I do want to point out tape in the sunday morning until there's probably going to be more news that comes out about this injury after we're done taping zach. Cal zodda looks too big for the moment. The mobile look too big for his causa. This hanes king injury makes texas am average at best for the rest of the season if he's out for the year. Yeah i was in you know. Give credit i mean he. He did come up with the play that one the game but the play the one the game on the road against colorado is is not the same as you know coming up with plays In baton rouge your At home against alabama. So you know all the credit in the world but let's get to reality here Is a team that that is going to be devalued right now while we watch and see how they handle it. they have arkansas before alabama. I know i know they're fans have only looked at the alabama game but You know they'll they'll they're not gonna see a lot of competition but they will see arkansas and i agree with you You know he was. He was hard to watch at times. And and hopefully king will come back all by the way. Even a healthy king had not been very good this year so he was not an anyone ties with race but they keep paying jimbo they keep paying jimbo and the quarterback luke haines might end up being good as young as a highly rated recruit. But this guy's the quarterback guy needs quarterback well unfortunately in college football. You just can't go to the waiver. Wire this is his guy. And i had people tell me that he wanted to get him in a year ago against kellyn monde instead of. Keller mom you just couldn't pull kellerman. Kellerman was the first college football. I eight year starter. I think matt and finally jimbo is telling people we finally got our guy. He's going to be great and and he has not been so. Yeah i i worry. A little bit about am Time could help them. Though with the schedule being more middle middle middle of the season versus right now. I don't remember why i read. This could be on one of those. You know southern football blogs that. I go down every week just to just get a finger the poles but there are something that iran and you would know more than i would that the am keeps extending our extended. Jimbo have to to make his salary even higher because they see lsu struggling and they're all paranoid that let's just say coach l. Just doesn't make it that they're they're paranoid of lsu coach jimbo fisher's is at an actual thing. It's funny you would ask me of all people to speculate on on speculation May i'll explain it very succinctly if i can Five years ago. Lsu thought it had hired jimbo fisher Remember the story got out. And jimbo's agent jimmy sexton to represents. Almost everyone felt like they needed money. Lsu balked jimbo backed away and they got stuck with less miles. All of a sudden less could do they. Texas amazon story was bouncing off the walls. So they less comes back losers wisconsin. He's fired four games later. And by that point jimbo was was not interested What happened what happened next. There is a conclusion of the story. All you were ready to go out and do something. Scott woodward higher jimbo fisher for seven million dollars a year at texas. Am let me ask the classic question. Where does scott woodward. Currently reside the answer is baton. Rouge at lsu. There there there there you have the puzzle solved about why the next athletic director. Ross bjork gave jimbo the contract extension and it's fascinating because in the coaching world. And you're right. Jimmy sexton controls the coaching world. You always this extent. Fans far away like widely extending the sky the famous Remember from a couple years ago as we'll must champ getting extended it south carolina after having a an average season at best. And he's no longer the head coach dan so these one more one more on the on the extension meter. Yeah i'll i'll i'll raise you will muschamp which made no sense and give you a jeremy pruitt at tennessee getting a contract extension after two miserable years. I don't know why they don't get held more accountable. They being the administration. That does these because it is just you strap yourself. Then you get yourself into a bigger by out and then you're financially strapped because you give a coach who hasn't done much more money all right and finally you got to say you got the same agent jimmy sexton in the final thing on that before you go. These athletic directors on unfortunately make too many decisions by reading twitter. Wow social media continues to be the downfall of society. I think we knew that coming in paul. You know how. I am on a bold statement. I made the bold statement about ucla. I'm still riding high on that. When i'm gonna hold on on that but here's my bold statement. Is we send everyone off on their first. Nfl sunday the season. I'm telling you. I am telling you. Watch out for auburn. They've got penn state this week college game day parking the boss sean. Penn state and auburn. They look bone knicks. They looked so different in this bryant. Hartson offense first time in program history. They've scored sixty points and free two games of the season. I'm telling you watch out for auburn. Well there i am not going to laugh at it because you can't argue with success you can argue with the competition but they will be severely tested this weekend and and i think for golly knicks. He's he's never had confidence. He won his first game against oregon. And after that it was a it was a it was a roller coaster. Ride because gus malzahn was not very expressive when it comes to creativity. I'm not. I'm not dismissing it. I'm also not agreeing with it. Because look i know is alabama state. And i know they were going to win. But here's what. I posed digestion. Joey when i said this yesterday just watch out for auburn. 'cause they look really good. What would a gus. Malzahn team had done against alabama state. What would a gus malzahn. Coach team have done in this game. Yesterday there would have been a sloppy game Probably like the alabama mercer game right. And what do they do. They go in there step up in their throat. Sixty two nothing make it zero doubt going into by the way. The penn state game mouth zona malzahn coach team could've made this game. Sloppy gone into a big gang. Team was ahead. I don't know there's something about all brand. Well it's a different mindset. He's got very good coordinators. And mike bobo and enduring mason. Who came over from vanderbilt and hartson is a motive in the most serious minded coaches. I've ever met the guy he was he was doing a good job at boise. This is not somebody who just got hired off the waiver. Wire i mean this is. This is a coach so is going places. So that's the big game coming up in week. Three as always look sunday morning when you download this we appreciate you. Listen to it that we both have long saturdays. Paul's traveling all of the south to get back home. Ahmed bristowe from eleven thirty am till about two forty am so a little slow with our thoughts on sunday mornings with coffee kick and end the bloody marys get made. We're gonna get through this together. Paul we've got fourteen weeks left of this. Yeah no. I'm good. I i sometimes i. I've had people who listen back and go man that. What were you thinking. And and the answer is we weren't. Here's what you're going to get on sunday. You're going to get complete exhaustion honesty. Which a lot of times. It's hard to get at of most people so we appreciate down. We appreciate list will be here each in every sunday morning. And gimme one bold prediction before next sunday to give me a good one. Yeah i think. We're going to find out about alabama in gainesville for the first two weeks. We've gotten false reads. I'm not predicting anything yet. But but i think i think alabama the curtain will be Brought either up or down on them in terms of their greatness you know could they get exposed or do they go down there and just pound florida and make a statement and leave. No doubt i love it. i love it. Do this again with you next sunday. Remember it's a five day a week. Podcast is the espn college football podcast. Paul finebaum i'm matt berry.

I I want to thank you for moving the podcast taping time because y'all need understand Brandt is a father to y'all know father and Mia my middle one had a play and that is very important. And so my man Brandt understands fatherhood. So he moved the time. Thank you, sir. That's how you get off on the right foot. Yeah. No problem at being a dad who misses all kinds of stuff. I I realize important to make those what he can so easy to do. Happy will make it. I'm sure she did awesome. She did man. It's fun to watch. It's just inspiring to me to see our little people that we made be honest age like that and be so confident it fills up my tank, man, but. Dad's there little girls and dad's special man, it is it's impossible to describe. I've tried to articulate it. And I just don't know how yet because the feeling that that that love is inside of me is just beyond description. Maybe someday I'll be able to put it into words. I don't know you're pretty good. I think you'll be able to figure it out. Thank you, brother. I say, let's let's start in Nashville. You're a lifelong Nashville guy born and raised never left. I gotta know. Like when you're coming up. You just turned thirty eight right? Happy birthday. Thank you very much. I did. So when you're like at grocery store when you're little boy did you ever run into Waylon Jennings or anything? You know? No, I've gotta know quite a few of the country guys here in town just because of most of them are Goff junkies. Most of our killing time during the day when they're traveling or when they're in the city doing spot, so they all playing golf, so I've got quite a few the is that way. But yeah, you'll run into guys around Tassell, national, so great. I remember growing up in town and seeing Garth Brooks run around tally time and Alan Jackson, all these great country stores are growing up here, national and just normal jobs. It's going to, you know, going them all shopping going dinner at certain restaurants, whatever it may be everybody kinda leave him alone. But do thing nobody really coming up in bother too much. And I think it's part of the reason why there's so many these guys and still live in Nashville because they love they love the vibe here. They let the people and they love living. And and Nashville was grown immensely since. I was here's a kid. You should become a little form town. Now, it's turning this kind of new hip city. So it's it's been fun to wash transform those exactly where I was going. It's my favorite town in the country. I live in Charlotte. I love Charlotte. It's a great place to be. And to raise my family. I'm moved here right out of college. Because I was chasing race cars at the time. New. I wanted to be in NASCAR racing. And that's why moved here, but and we've stayed here. But man, I have been I have a lot of buddies in country music too. And they keep telling me, you gotta come to Nashville that town is an awesome town to consider it Charlotte with art. I think it's so inspiring to be there because of the artistic boom that it's experiencing. How have you seen it grow during your lifetime? I mean, it's unbelievable. When I grew up pretty much everything else out of downtown was touristy with a few country. Bores wasn't really well kept at that time and wasn't exactly the safest place in the world. When all young kids seven eight year nine years old now, and where the town is grown used to be all farmland, you'd be really, you know, horse farm tattle farms, whatever it may be and now to see the city span the way it does the way it has the way the city smart four thinking, they're gonna Beth a lot of money in downtown really clean, it up it really embrace the tourism aspect of it and brace, you know, the business of of all the different companies come to town, whether it be shit at the healthcare companies are Megan the street, really voice. Those things, you know, technology, a huge proponent of this. And now this are typically come from the last five years, it's been really unbelievable gonna change take on this new you feel like you're part of metropolitan area. There's always little different sects downtown now go and have a great time experience everything, and I tell people all the time don't come to Nashville for for just country music. Come come natural for a great food scene for great music scene. No matter what you I listen to a great art scene and for the people and people would make it so special and such. A welcoming place people kind of go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. I really wanna embrace anybody come here and experience. I'm a lifelong country music fanatic and anybody that knows anything about me knows that some of my greatest heroes or Waylon Willie and cash in Chris, and I've always been captivated with that outlaw seen and it's funny man back to daughters, daddy's daughters win in week three of the college football season. I had LSU allburn in Auburn and that was win hurricane Florence was coming through Charlotte. And so lenient I took my whole family with me to Auburn. And after the game, we just drove. Okay. So you have a daughter the daughter having American Girl doll, of course. Okay. All of them do right. So both of mine have them. And my mea the girl that I went to see my daughter did the play today. She has an American Girl doll that is a country singer. Tenny grant is her dull. So she is nine in infatuated with Nashville. So we just drove up from Auburn to Nashville since there was hurricane in Charlotte. And we took our daughters to the Reimann we took him to the blue bird and dude to see like my passion through there is was a fascinating experience. It was also that town just rocks. I could go on on my I've gotten. Good fortune have always great musicians come through town fortunate. Take my dollar do really cool things and my little man to do it with me. And it's been fine. You last night. We went to basketball game early games. They're in school. You have to take them down there. And we actually beat Arizona state to do stuff like that they'll check of as little vents and see them kind of chair Pash that you have with them and see them experience half, honest point anything, there's enjoying spend time with you and having fun with you. And it's so cool to have those moments like that. And we have Reimann is a is a is a must do you? Come to town. The Bluebird cafe I lived there for about three years about literally five hundred yards away. We're on walk the blueberry pie once a month. And check it out through a really cool be able to do that here in town and just experience. What what what what all national how offer so which country singer that you've played golf with is the best. Back in the day. Vince Gill was really good. He's he's got a little older now. But he he could really hit it. He's you know, you'd always give me a hard time. If you always say what you let why are you let back. It's our player out drive because he could really smoke it back in. You know, Jake a really good player. Charles Kelley grew up in a gust Georgia, laying bellum really really Klay pretty good. So there's quite a few guys right now that are going. Clay, Walker's golf junkie. I've seen plan all the time. So an air churches kinda new to you know, it's funny when I hear you on your podcast talk to you right now, you sound eerily similar to church. I'm sure you've heard that before on seem like him. But you talk I mean, yearly similar I do not seem like him. But yes, I've heard that many times and that includes my own children. So. And so they hear about him all the time. And I have heard that before damn I wish I saying like him Brandt. I don't know. I don't know if I'd be doing this podcast right now be interviewing me instead. So I read where your grandmother introduced you to the game. What was it like that was did you play with her? What was what was that? Like. My both my grandparents are from small town millionnaire nowhere, Missouri place called west plains, Missouri. And she was the manager of the country club there. I guess you'd call it country club is the only golf fortunately down. And so we would go up in the summertime spent a couple of weeks with my grandparents were divorced. My grandfather. He's been a week with him. He lived a double wide trailer out the the best time. It was awesome. And my grandmother, we'll take it to the club. And she just loves go play golf all day while she was working. So that's how we got introduced the game. I was six years old Vic my Bose nine or ten years old time not the first time we really played. My dad was the baseball player growing up started picking up golf when he got later in life. But then really at that time was playing may once a week with somebody's on the weekend. And so that was kind of arch Dutch, and she got her first set the golf clubs, and from there just kinda ran with his voice, my Bose, you know, obviously been the younger, brother. I kind of did whatever he did. And he got into Goff a little bit. I even more so in golf and just loved it. And that's how I started playing. And then my dad kinda took it rain with excuse to get him out play golf on the weekends. I think and so it's something we did that family. We a bunch of great matches me and my brother and my dad vice versa. It was a lot of fun. You know, like a lot of great quality time on the golf course. When did you know, you were better than the other guys? My mom still has this thing didn't kindergarten when you fill out what you wanna do for your life. So this is right after I got my dos filled out this whole thing about being on PJ to or playing golf for a living and all ever wanted to do it never had any other passion to anything else. I was always parents always joke. Drove into that. You need to have a backup plan because probably isn't going to happen. Don't meet the first your bubble. You know, not make it, and I never really kinda registered with me. I always thought I was going to do it. And I just never had. I guess I had the right mentality for it. My brother's really really talented. He played ole miss all American player, but we're polar opposite mentality on the golf course. He had a terrible temper really talented, but just could never kinda let bad shots go go next shot and kind of figure it out. I never really had an issue with that. I was always kind of glasses half full. I mean, it's gonna work out. It's gonna be fine kinda guy. And this was really lucky. I guess I always had a bunch of. Stuff happen to be on the golf course. And I really late. Fobel grace where a loss term I should have worn or anything like that just gonna kill building confidence. And always kind of thought it was gonna work out. And luckily did 'cause I don't know what I would be doing. It did What was that moment? Like, then if it was such a childhood aspiration and dream when you are in your car. Yeah. The poor the coolest thing I got to do. I wonder US public's tournament. When I was twenty two years old and got the plan the masters of the named her. Now the first moment where I was really like good college player. I, you know, making stuff in new gun had a chance but to go play in the masters in Amador such a cool experience. You know, it's something to stay in the crow's nest of the clubhouse. I'd never been to professional vent for play in the masters never going to be tour vent by never played with BJ to a player. So I had no idea what I was getting into. And I remember walking out the first morning and they open the first day to eight o'clock in the morning. The first patriots to walk on property. I call about seven thirty in the morning that I parked. My car driven down from Nashville, and I parked my car in the in a bad spot patron crosswalk their toes, I didn't move it. Of course. I'm freaking out. You know, they kicked me out his place, and I ain't been here for a night, and they'll move the card. It's weird feeling being there on property when there's no there's no page. That's coming Irie goes down on going there and taking a shower walking back downstairs eight fifteen and saying, you know, thirty thousand people on the golf course and walk down the wrong, turn and win the champions locker room and seeing Jack Nicklaus VJ seeing all fill know all these guys and around about Iran back up there. I don't know if I can play today. I don't know put it to you in the ground is just overwhelming, you know, being a, you know, kids Nashville trying to come down here never seen professional vent never met a professional player. Really? And I remember if I can handle this stuff, I can go out there and play with these guys and somewhat keeps together I can do this. Because I was just totally ill-prepared. We never had any idea what I was doing. And I made the cut on the number play four rounds and then playground the weekend. But I did it. And so when that happened. Okay. I can handle this kind of stuff. This is about never ever been by career. I figured out that kind of leads me to the next question. And if this is redundant. Just say, so, but my estimate I feel like golf pressure is different than the pressure of other sports because other sports athletes are somewhat removed from the fans golf you. Guys are right in it, man. I mean, if you shank t- off you're going to laser somebody's teeth out. Right. You guys live on an island. Windy. You come become comfortable with that island. It's funny. It takes time at the hardest thing to do sports kinda block the noise outright to realize that you know, sans right now in my career. It's just like a wall people I never really make contact. I try to like when I'm walking between holes to be smile on polite. Be nice. But you don't really see faces. You just see blurs of of colors to be in the moment. But it's the the thing that people don't realize about golf every other sports, the most part of the reaction sport in that the actions, constant you don't have time to think you're just reacting to what's going on and golf. Completely opposite. You have you know of five hours of run off. Course, you really only hit, you know, eight minutes worth of all shots. Six minutes worth of all shot. So you have a ton of time your mind to create all these hurdles that you have to overcome. And so that's probably the hardest thing about being dealing with pressure is not the actual thirty seconds. When you hit the shot. It's three minutes up to that thirty second. How you handle it? How you get your mind right space and of how you kinda get yourself into the right frame of mind and the and the the the Hillary stuff. Yeah. The outside stuff becoming not that big of a deal, you know, don't worry as for general most golfers love being individuals because it falls on us if we fail. It's all our fault. I can't blame catty came under coach in a day. It's on you know, you gotta find a way to get it done or don't get it done. And I think most golfers love that. Now, that's why it's really tough when you play guys play team golf Ryder Cup golfer presents cut off. 'cause it's so different. You know, 'cause you you're alive. On eleven other guys, you feel almost doubly intensive pressure because you don't wanna let your teammates down, and we don't deal with that on regular basis. It probably one things that probably tough watch team sport is to kind of get is seeing how much you know, how tough that would be. How much more pressure would be on those jobs because they got another guy's depending on them. How much will push him to kind of get over over whatever they're trying to get over. How many guys you sports psychologists? I think everybody used one one at one point or another in their career. I think I've been through three or four trying to help you get in the right frame of mind. I haven't used one five ten years now. Yeah. I think every every guy wants wants an answer to a question that most psychologists cannot answer when I feel terrible when everything's going sideways, and I'm on the eighteenth hole. And I've got, you know, billions of twenty five million people watching me at home on TV. And I got. Thirty people out here Washington shot, and I feel like I don't know where it's gonna go. What do I do? How do I get it in the fairway? And you know, they have their they have their, you know, kinda checkless you go through. You gotta find out. Everybody's different. You'll find out how to do it yourself. You gotta find out. Okay. This is what my tendencies are. This is how I you know, I've tried this before it didn't let the trial and error period. Like how I handle the pressures is how I get through it. How I could hit a shot. I know I have somewhat conference I could pull off and believe in yourself enough to say, you know, what I'm gonna find a way to get it done. And that's one thing. I love I've taken away from giving. No Tiger Woods a little bit with no one that is bad as I feel overall shot. No matter how nervous I get. I know Tiger Woods still exact same way. I mean, the reason why he's probably a thousand over par on the first hole his golf career only so nervous about the pro on the first hole every time it up, and so if Tiger Woods nervous over. Then I should take comfort in that fact, knowing that he feels exact same way I do on the level playing about how do I handle he's the best ever handling? I've gotta find my way of handling, you know. So that's probably them bigs help me last ten years of my career. So that's something. He readily admits. He's that nervous on the first heat. I e every time he no he's like if you're not nervous not nervous than what are you doing? That means you don't care about the outcome of death. Not invest in the process that means you're not invested anything that interest. Because when you go playing event and your T off your writing a score down at the end of that round. And that's gonna reflect a thousand percent on. If you do the work that you you're all set you're supposed to be successful. And there's no hide from that number eighty five on tour shot fifty nine onto or so I seen all both. You know, those streams of that. So and there's nowhere to hide all goes in the ground. You're scores me there for everybody to see. So you better be nervous better care about it. Otherwise, all the very good at it. We'll get fifty nine and a minute, man. To especially when you bogey the first hole any minute. What's it been like for you guys? Tigers peers to watch him have this resurgence. What was it like to watch him win? Again, you ever seen anything like that before lot really know, you know, it it's been so cool because he is kind of opened up out here in the last six seven years since his injury and really got to know like personal level, and it really ever have. And no one tiger from, you know, six seven eight nine when he was dominating everything and everybody but a ton to see in struggle and thirteen fourteen fifteen the come back. It's been so cool. Having such such a unbelievable story. I played with my Tampa this year in the last two rounds chance to win early on the year. And we were in the second to last group on Sunday. And I was playing terrible. And I found myself openly rooting for Tiger Woods to win a golf tournament. Yeah. We're trying to will every putt form to go in. I said if you'd asked me the security guy, so there's no way in hell. I would have ever rooted for woods, like I'm ready form right now mess, just because of this great redemption story, should I mean, you know, it was so bad a couple of years ago. You know, I remember watching shift at Phoenix. And I was like I don't think anybody can come back for that. You know? And no, no, no one what I know. Now that he was in that much pain. He couldn't couldn't bend over enough shipping to chip it fall. Normally that's why he had those chips for the year. Now all make sense back. Then I didn't know nobody knew what was going on. And so we always wanted to get better. See this kind of stuff we saw this year. See the scene at east lake on Sunday on real. I don't care who you are. I mean, I made my kids watch it. I wasn't there just missed out. So I was set there on Africa guys. You gotta watch. This you need to see this is the most important sports figure of of my lifetime. He's the reason why we live in this house. He's the reason why I I may play for the money L play for play. Live the life that we do. So we sit here and watch history being made it's coming back. Nobody's ever really ever had to deal with and it's such a cool moment, and he's just become a friend who got on tour mentor to bunch of guys just seeing back have fun again and seeing on that was his kids, which I think any follow out there. Tell you as you know, it's really cool your kids and see you be successful in your career kind of share that with a little bit a really special moment. As part of the reason why it's drought. So hard right now. I think so too had the great blessing, and it's a blessing to sit with him for quite some time before the masters last year and get into all that and everything that he managed and him telling me there were days when he just couldn't even get out of bed, and when he did get out of bed, and he put his feet on the floor just fall on the floor, and he couldn't get up, and he couldn't even lay in the floor and play Legos with his kids. They'd want him to come out in the backyard and play any couldn't even lay in the yard to watch them. Kick a soccer ball around. Because his pain was so dramatic. He just had no choice. He just couldn't. And the way that that stripped him emotionally and whatnot. Was was so dramatic that this this this reemergence, and this resurgence is all well and good. He's enjoying playing golf again in certain at this point winning again. But above all, he's happy. He can walk down the street with his kids. And I was so fascinated by seeing his owner ability in saying these things, and it felt a very odd may be misguided connection to him there. It was very cool to see. Now, they've got it all the one thing I've gotten a real out of everybody's gotta know of last six years as different person than he was fifteen years ago, you know, fifteen years ago, it's all about winning thousand percent of winning all I cared about. He was gonna play with is extra super nice play with. But he was. Never go way to try to help. You never go way to spend time with you. And it's been totally different. Now, I think being outta golfer. A couple of years. I remember when I made the Ryder Cup team sixteen assistant, captain literally got the point of my wife is like you can answer that phone as long as it's not because his tiger be on the phone for an hour and a half. That's how that's how much he missed it. That's almost was talking about what we're the Ryder Cup team. Our successful Howard gonna win. Here's how did stuff and all these things showed them how much you still care about the game of golf how much he loved it. And so that's why I think everybody two were so excited when we realized how much she loved and how much and how hard he worked to get back to where it was very rare. You see that pay off second time so hard to come back. Once you lose confidence. That's tricky thing off me you see all the time. You see it and really sports you have time to think about field. Okay. Precede a lot feel and football. Just tough time to think about stuff all the time. You have all these going through your head and you start getting those negative thoughts in their match. It's almost like a a dark deep dark hole. You go down. You can never get out of. Speaking rough moments. No two thousand fourteen was a real tough year for you. What did you? Learn about yourself at year. You know, how much I love what I do. You know, if you don't love what you do. And you and you struggle like that it's always tough. You know, you you deal with injuries. I've dealt injuries of all kinds of things tough year, not not much standard. And and not up to what I I try to be. And so it's always tough when you have especially great years ago, it's tough to kind of while pill saying I'm not playing that was I got figure out why nobody blame myself. I gotta go look to mirror figured out. Really redouble my efforts know, I thought I was working hard enough. I guess I wasn't. So we go work harder. Yeah. Figured out. And you know, you you need to have a great support system. You know, you need to have of lucky. You have a great wife and two great kids who don't care if I win or lose they want their dad home. They wanna play with dad. You've gotta have that great balance. I tell people all the time. I I want one time for kids I've won eight times since and in the same time. I kids are seven years old. So I was on tour. Six years for kids and my oldest kid now seven years old. So there's a reason why I believe that. Because I balance in my life for the first time, I don't live and die by every shot. I don't let a bad term it linger and cost me from next week. I'm able to kind of move on and not over work myself. I used to when I was younger my career out worked so hard that I would practice myself into bad, Abbott, Lew. It'd be on the range all day Brexit on something to the point where overdo it to the extreme. And so kids have given me that release to be like, you know, I need to get time away and make sure I get my work done. It'd be grasses and the golf course. And but my kids school for clock, I'm home. So the time with him and fun with don't be that. It looks like a lot of you guys are buddies out there to me, you know, just from a far and the outside looking in. I saw this had the great opportunity interview Tony female last year as well before you know, he kind of became Tony. Unowned blew his ankle. And then had that great masters and all those things. And so I saw a photo that he posted of you. And he and all these other guys, I think cooter was in there. Some other guys like that Ellen shot from the Emmys a few years ago. What's it? What's the challenge of building relationships when these are the same people, you're fighting for food every day? It's tough. You gotta have that balance. Right. You're gonna have that balance of Saint. Hey, these where traveling circus, right? Every week when anew city we put in the same hotel travel. Same, you know, either hop on Schick share plane, right somebody or or airpor- or go to dinner with them, whatever may be pipe optional. So you always have your buddies to play that you go along with. And so most part two was really that. We're really lucky we got a ton of Greg to right now. We've got a bunch of great young kids are playing great fun to be around much old guy. There's still hanging in there playing golf so fun time to be traveling being onto because you have somebody out be around but come Thursday through Sunday. You know, I I remember when I I can say I can tell the story now 'cause I've got James will ever playing Sunday pebble in two thousand thirteen Ambra Puerto we cut we're getting the first James that we were in the last. Group and James is is the time with me for the league. He's a rookie onto this the first time going out and James great guy. Really funny. It'd be around just love gotta gotta this. I didn't really know what that time. So I told my Emmer partner who's Toby we'll hear Nashville. He's a really fun guy to be around there by two minutes. I Toby listen today is worth I don't want you talking to Jamestown one bit. You're not making comfortable is not your buddy today. You a my buddy you stay away from him. I don't want him to feel anything but play golf today after about the temple James playing. Great. And I was playing really good. And he was kind of sensory places point. If Toby you can go talk to them now, go have fun with them. And that's mentality. Gotta have onto or you're able to separate on Sundays that no I know for fact on Sunday, Tampa tire not gonna go out. And I don't blame him. You know, it's his job ago work and try to win on Sundays and that's deal Thursday through Saturday. Pretty good. Have some guys got part time. On sunday. It's a different ballgame. You trying to win trying to be successful. It's not my job to make sure this guy has a great time on Sunday. I love it assassin baby. Asan's out there love it. So speaking of being an assassin, let's discuss this Wyndham round. All right. So you bogey on right shoot a fifty nine eight damn fifty nine. I can't imagine. What that must have felt like take me through what you even remember about that out of body experience. I remember everything about played terrible on Wednesday a couple couple over Paul pro-am Thursday getting up, and I was going to try to swing out the day. Let's go with this. My head to good needed somewhere straight, and I'll be found and he'll make couldn't get around. And I snapped with my first of all trees terrible shot made bogey. I don't know if this is gonna work like a few more holes and see if it works kinda hit some good shots next you holes made along I think about four back even for and started hitting a pretty good sorta pretty solid shots and rogue hit where I was looking like turn turn it. Three hundred par they pay the things working pretty good dried it things are going. Well, all of a sudden, very one two and three foot on on those first three holes six hundred four through twelve holes. Still not really thinking about fifty nine. I poor five seven hundred four man to rig around and hold out on my fifteen fold from the fairways to get to non nine hundred four with reels play the first time, I really thought about fifty nine and I had chance earlier my career shoot fifty nine on the European tour China, and I lived on the last hole got really nervous kinda freaked out. Didn't didn't really handle it? Well, you know, just too afraid of talking about it thinking about it, you know, embracing. Yeah. And so told myself, I'm not gonna do that. You know, I'm not gonna sit there and. Be afraid of fifty nine or talking about her being whatever. And so I guess the next par-three and hit a five iron two feet. Knock it in for turn power, tools ago and playing sticky messy Yama Billy horseshoe. We'll walking AT box. Toll boats. God man, it's not gonna get any easier. This. You know, I got to wedge holes left to eat thirty opportunities. We're gonna I'm gonna fifteen hundred it's gonna find a way now like screw this up. I got nobody ever gonna get my career. She not maybe it's getting kinda crazy some serious. I'm going to happen. You're gonna see today. And I met a short birdie putt on eight. And I was so mad man that was four foot or down the hill should be. Gimme a and I missed it. Mad at myself got to non fairway and just on the fairway might wanna do it? She hit the fairway hit the twenty feet and. Walking up to the green building horseshoe. Like, I guess I was wearing a purple shirt and shouldn't wanna purple shirt today. They you you if you did you could probably have like I I do right now mean I'm gonna tell you right now, I'm gonna make I'm half the stuff. That's me talk myself into doing it dealer ham. I really believe I was going to do it on. Sure enough came off went right in the middle. And you know, the time is really cool. I didn't really realize what what it meant. There's something cool to do a lot of guys have done it back to my room afternoon. You know, I'm probably had three or four hundred techs probably more checks. I got for nine a different win a golf tournament ever my career, you know, and I realized kinda start thinking what cool moments that was. And then, you know, porta history that nobody ever take away from me. And then the nurse hit me. Like, oh my gosh. Man. Now, I'm gonna win the golf tournament. They can't screw this up. Just set yourself up with out of five day. You can't be of the fifty nine at lose a golf tournament. You know, so recipe. Brutal by the. Ever had onto or deal all that pressure and expectations. Luckily enough they will get down on Sunday. So for someone who isn't like a hard core golf consumer or player or person who's not avid explained to them. What is fifty nine? Fifty nine is more of a mental barrier. Right. Fifty nine is says most part seventy two seventy seventy seventy one seventy two par golf course. You know, anywhere under school join nine God's issues shoot under sixty six the barrier as always kind of like the four minute mile running trying to use some other people understand that. It's guys can't do it. Just very rare. When it happens hitting for the cycle and baseball, maybe something like that doesn't happen very often. And so it's more of a mental hurdle. God's great rounds. The whole time we get closer there. But the nerve stick in, you know, you're going along feeling great the whole like it's four feet wide. You can't make you know to make mistake if you tried then all of a sudden you start thinking about well could go wrong or how your she done? All said, you get nervous and things are changing. So it's just complete mental hurdle. How get over it and do it. And you know, it's something cool. The history books once you got on it. Once you guys done go on to win. So on you know, I'll be proud of that one for back. I'm already kicked you to loan. A couple more not get out of here. Brother. Good. I got nothing going on. So I was really fascinated by the Ryder Cup this year because I feel like our expectations were so high and everyone expected so much and then it just didn't happen. I mean, it just was a bad effort. Right. What was your reaction to all of the drama that stemmed from that loss? Yeah. I think it was you know, I wouldn't real happy with the drama afterwards. Just because I know Jim really well gonna play golf, and I know how hard he worked. And I thought he did everything right? Yeah. I I think every guys ever played on fifteen. We'll tell you the same thing when we went Ryder Cup. They're capping get way too, much credit and lose Ryder Cup to get way. Too much blame. I think Davis did the exact same job and twelve as he did in sixteen and twelve he was a horrible captain and in sixteen he was the best after never so I I've never understood, you know, people try to blame the captives for something that happened today. If you look at how we played. European team played unbelievable. They made a ton of pots they hit the ball in the fairway seem like every time. There's a porthole right in the middle of fairway. Golf course. Schumi? Call the cost for the ball fairly on the rough grown up and they pinch. Did that to make sure that they we had to play their game? You know, we played at sixteen and Hegel team really wide fairways though, rough with all of our guys can bomb. You know, they can all hit drivers nine miles Europeans for the most part can't keep up with that way till we turn into Verdy fast. And so that's a home-court advantage and France the exact opposite. It turned into a USO. The fairways real narrow rough Israel thick to really tough horse to be successful. So we had to play their kind of game. And so it was just bad set forth gin with but then to hear all the bickering kinda afterwards. You know, wasn't real big fan of. And I think for the most part about team to same thing. Jim did a great job. They didn't make the pots, and they need to you know, you gotta have a lot of luck to win one of those things. I don't care anyway, this your. Team played unbelievable. Just like we had a lot of sixteen when we wanted sixteen. You're gonna have to win those things. So I just didn't. I didn't think it was good fair to Jim Jim worked so hard. This. Why did a great job? I thought they thought of everything pretty much just just didn't work out that say in God's on us didn't play good off guys are things or somebody else on team. Me either agree with you. So so you're hardcore Commodore, and I love it. Hell I should make a t shirt says that but they'd sell pretty well. What do you think of Derek Mason vest last year? I love it. And I got one the house. I mean, how how many coaches are a dance of when they beat Tennessee third straight year. Like, I love I love me. He's great guys. Great coach kids and the kids to play for absolutely level. I mean, he's he's he's a fun guy to be around can't help. But love him since five minutes with and so I'm all in on this. I hope giving birth long day. He's an amazing dude really enjoyed being around in. My love is perspective. I love his intensity. And look fact is it's that that job is one. That is not easy. It's not an easy job to be the football coach at vandy. And he's done such tremendous job. I couldn't be more impressed with him. And I know doesn't he does stuff the right way as everything then goal? Say does stuff the right way, treat people the right way, and his you and get a lot of new age it in it's going to help them out a lot. So we're excited to see Malcolm Turner, just got the job to head of g. Each the delays or basketball now Geely so we will lure him in. So I think everybody knows excise the neck of the next eighty over and help Mace kinda get get where he wants to go. So as vandy gab what what what is van de over Tennessee? What's that mean? Yeah. I guess it's like. Little brother beating up on big, brother. You know when they both got different rival. You know, never really happened that much when it does you never forget about it. You know, for purposes, there's no way Tennessee should ever lose Vanderbilt football and the history the tradition the recruiting base they have the fan base. They have you know, it's pretty remarkable as of annual fan I can say that because I grew up in the state. I I understand Tennessee's football brands so strong. But for whatever reason multitude reasons they've had a lot of functional there and so since on for us to kind of get back on top of them for a few years. Yeah. It's been fun being a hold out over. And I I don't think even railfan has illusions last forever. Tennessee, should and will be strong again some point near future, but the fun to have this over for while. And so, you know, it's kind of you know, the one thing we always had basketball seem like every year. We're putting our top twenty five team in basketball due early nineties. They're legit or the real deal. And Rick Barnes done a great job up. There was a great hire some studs in there to play basketball. So it's been you know, it's it's something we it's arrival. So anytime, you be rob. You're you're excited for you. No matter how how she turns out. But I'm used to be. We always say get fire. The Vanderbilt gets lose your job because that's one thing. 'cause he did not like putting losing Vanderbilt anything. I read the you were in China and say your lawn to wake up for a game. Oh, yeah. Every time. Every time travel overseas. The great thing about this day and age sure able follow your team's wherever you on the world. You know, you're able to go being trying to waking up at three and watch animal games, Australia this year did same thing. So it's it's. Yeah. ES to watch ESPN app has been great for me on their all time. Check, check them out. We read and washed on the tarmac for playing that on Saturdays. And Sundays went west. You know, the first awful not afraid to call our phone out. Check it what. While tournament. Oh, yeah. Attached to dude, that's like a walk in commercial my bosses, they just related that. I mean, I guess to me. So that they know what happens come on. I don't I don't I don't think they'll find you for what the hell. Right. Exactly. But trying to you know, we're football fans day real real Jenner football fans. I think. I think that's absolutely fantastic. Man. I mean, I thought it was like I don't care how many strokes behind you are it's all focusing all tucked in shirts and all that stuff, man. Oh, it you realize that Pat on Saturday Sunday teams plan, you're not afraid to pull header caddy. Hold on your phone for your white into shock. You kill Tom. The whole time. So you'll see what's going game. Guys. It was the Larry's how about how about the fault that brand snicker if he's not playing so great in tournament is checking out the Vanderbilt Commodores, his beloved Vanderbilt Commodores on the links between hosts they're just like us, y'all further all ages Kobe. This is a non paid ad by Brent Senator. Yeah. Completely not mean. And that was the beauty of it. Like it just cracked me up. I was kinda like, wait. What you do? I thought that was fantastic. They're just like us. It's no different than us. All see all he needs a little bit of country music and a cold beer in a console that golf cart. And I'm sure his game. Looks a whole lot like mine does I wish they could ride around and have some cold ones while they're golfing may to we need to have big discussion at some point about the that tiger feel deal the match. Yeah, they need. They need your spruce. It up by spruce it up. I mean, redneck it up a little bit and. Let the good boys out there watching them, and you know, riding around on carts, some beverages have some beer, I love it. It speaking loving it as being a co bear we're going to try something new in the mortgage Miss America podcast. We're going to begin asking. Our interview subjects the Dan lebatardshow poll questions in guys who are fans of Danny, and Stu and the boys know that throughout their show that created a phenomenon with that show. But part of that phenomenon is there po- questions if some random comment comes up they ultimately, quote, put it on the pole, and they put a Twitter poll up and the response is ridiculous. And so we thought it would be funny since we have access to these great athletes or musicians or whomever that we should ask them some of these poll questions and Brandt was our very first victim check it out. Okay, before I get you out of here. Have you ever? Are you aware of the Dan lebatardshow? Of course, I hear I hear you on there all the time. Okay. Very good. So, you know, about their their their daily polls that they do like these spontaneous ran on the polls. Yes. Yes. So as part of my podcast. I'm going to ask you some poll questions you good. Okay. Here. We go. Did you know that your nipples are as unique as your fingerprints? Just not know that nor did I just learned something is the spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy's. The absolute best hangover cure. No come on. I'm from Nashville, spicy chicken. That's what we do here. Did you know that roller coasters could cure asthma? I did not know that is that fact, I don't know. But we'll have to look that up on web dot com. Do you own underwear with holes in them? I don't think. So now. No, I don't think. Laney would let me either does the Dan lebatardshow have the dumbest smart people or the smartest dome. People. Combo of both. Is the in Stephen a Smith really necessary. That's a good one. I got no idea. What is do? We know that stands for. I do not. I have no idea. I will ask him is this in John C Reilly really necessary. It must fits better for some reason, doesn't it. Yeah. Kind of wrote has a little bit better. Roll off. He's finding new golf ball like finding a crisp five dollar Bill. It is for everybody. But me. Yeah. You get free ones free. Free is zero black with white stripes or white with black stripes. I'm a block of white sets. Under disea- putter. I had growing up with black white stripes on it. There you go winning. If you had twenty four hours could you find the flip phone? Yeah. Good. Do you sleep with your sheets interrupt? Only psychos would amend word. I'm with you on that, man. I don't know how anybody can have a man to more. Do you? Do you fling the pill and sling the rock? Is the person who says throwing the pill a jackass or an irredeemable tech? I'm gonna go there. Jackass actually, pay men. You sir are a superstar. And I did I loved it. Thank you so much. That was awesome. That was just anytime. And I'm big fan of yours. Congratulate your success math all tobacco NASCAR date. I'm glad to see. How successful you've been? And how much fun you're having that looks awesome to keep it up. Thank you, brother. Appreciate you. Hopefully, I'll get on there and see you boys soon. Yeah. Please do anytime and love to have you on the road. We'll get we'll get you behind the ropes fun with you. You love. It sounds. I'll hold the phone Bill. I'll keep you updated on scores. That's right. You can start texting going on days. Be good, bro. Thank you for your example. Anytime appreciate it man to. Alert a lot of things on the mornings Miss America podcast from all these amazing people. But the I will say I've never learned anything quite like the fact that my nipples are as unique as my fingerprints. At least according to the science that is the Dan lebatardshow. I'm sure McGee knew that. Let's chat with him about this McGee. Did you know this no? But I did not. I'm glad to know what I spent a lot of time studying this. But I have let somebody is. You learn something new every day and did not realize that if I did commit a crime that they can catch me bum nipples. Wow. Well, I think I told you store that. One time we're riding bikes like little BMX bikes when we were I don't know probably fifth grade. And I had a buddy go over his handlebars and he lost one. Like lost rash? Shredded is right off. Yes. Some question is I need to track him back now. Because when it grew back was it unique. Or was it a duplicate? What was before if you if if you remove your finger prints, I think they grow back the same way. I don't know what movie was it. Where dude cut off his finger nail or nothing and his fingerprints was seven was that Brad Pitt movie. Yeah. Always in all spa movies. They always put their hands in acid or they rub rub. Like flick seal or something owner fingertips that was him. I'm surprised that. There hasn't been like a hillbilly headline where guy got caught because his nipple was the DNA. Oh, that's come. Now. We'll be we'll be looking for that. Now because Florida. And. That's a great transition into redneck nece now one of the greatest country boy movies of all time is smoking a bandit way down. Everybody who has any inkling about McGee and me understand our infatuation with this movie. Now that led to a recent discussion that Travis and I had here and a hashtag called new bandit where I asked you guys to send us who you thought might provide the best new age smoking abandoned cast. So I had to bring in expert. I had to bring in McGee to get his perspective on this. All right. Let's run it down. All right. If you were how need them if if McGee was how need 'em two thousand nineteen and he decided I'm gonna put a brand new smoke in the bandit two point. Oh on the silver screen. Let's run it down. Who would you cast in your dream world for smoke in the band at two point? Oh, new bandit as bandit, mcconaughey. I think it's very good one. Okay. So Matthew, mcconaughey, whoever it is number one has to be legit southern. And number two has to have the charisma like Burt Reynolds who by the way, people all rentals born in Michigan. What s fine? He grew up in Florida like at Florida's a life. But yeah, I think we're kinda hey could pull it also you, okay? I think McConnell as an absolutely tremendous call on my list. I actually had Vince Vom. Yeah. Okay. I went Vince Vaughn Burt Reynolds because he has that smart ass right approach to everything and that super ability to be very dry and very hilarious at the same time which Bert had in spades. And so I think we've both done really well here Travis did you even make a list? So I'm afraid that I could offend both of you right now in these next dealer award is probably urban Meyer, something that's actually even worse. I have never seen smoke in the bandit. Okay. Well, my God what any hospice it's era a lower c- of tea like every day. I'll make that my homework. Yes. Yes. That is absolutely your homework and with us it's got to do with being American. I will back on the mardi Milton life. I'm back mardi Mckee program. I think in two weeks, I will watch it before. Then have a full review for you guys. Okay. Hit the real vers that I'm at his TV need to find like any to online somewhere, you need to find the real version on it spend three ninety nine and go to Netflix and watch version, please please come on, man. Come home man moment failed him McGee we have failed. I thought we were doing a good job of. Educating America on all ways, southern but apparently, we are failing miserably in our own house. If Travis hasn't seen band yet. Okay. Moving alone. Who plays Carey in mcgee's new bandit? That's a good question about. How about a Anne Hathaway? Oh, an hat. What that was a quite a pool where that was really a pool, but she could pull it fantastic. She's got she's she's kinda got that Sally field like always going to look younger than she is thing. And I went to same. I went to same route. But in terms of my choice. Yeah. But I want faith hill hard. Yeah. Yeah. Eighteen good faith Von Roll with that. Yeah. I think faith who could be a really good Kerry. And you know, she just has that that net girl next door down home, but blow you away beauty that Sally field had by the way. Just as an aside. Laney's reading Sally field's book right now. Okay. Moving low. Well, everyone should read a everyone should read how need to stuntman. That's one of all time favorite boxes if ever. There were a great promoter of great promoters. It is McGee and how need him one of the greatest stories I've ever read on ESPN dot com that opus he wrote on them about what five years ago six. Yeah. He came to the track to promote this book. It was me how need him and Harry Gant sitting in the la- radio room to media center. Daytona? I you talked about trying to play it cool. But on the inside going Balkars, I'll I'll play the cool. But I I was I was clearly a fan can all older spec to get a cannonball run is still. I would watch cannonball right now. So yeah, they're remaking that which I think you, and I should be in that going. I'm sorry. We should let's make our make our stake state our claim right now, we should absolutely be in a cannonball, run remake. Our agents are ready for your call immediately. Yeah. We will. Yeah. Who's directing it? Well, the guys who did Reno nine one one. And nine to museum at some of those and one of those guys think went high school, my wife, so I need to fish should be cast in a two for sure actually, she should probably be in my smokey in new bandit. Yeah. All right. Yeah. I I want us to even if we're just in one scene driving through in a car. It's it's a, you know. Yeah. Even if we're just like extras, and we wave at the cameras by nice cream cone or something did, you know, this you probably did know this because you're like mainland Roddick about smoking ban it, but I did not realize offer. God, I guess that John Schneider is an extra. All right. So I'll give you know. So they shot a really bad. Made for TV, quote, unquote, sequel for smoking just called the bandit and boroughs had nothing to do with how need directed it. They shouted in Monroe North Carolina right after I graduate high school and couldn't find a job. It was living with parents in John Schneider. Played like the sheriff that was chasing the bandit. Yeah. I see him. All boy. Extra in the original. Yeah. That's fantastic. Joklik os into new and could you get on that Travis getting getting bone and or Luke Duke on the radio show? I'll work on it. Thank you. That's it. That's imperative we need we need to do that. Okay. Who who snowman? This is tough because. I'm trying to think of like Jerry Reed, obviously was at the height of his country music stardom when he took that role. So I'm her fict- role. Oh, yeah. I'm trying to think of current like country music artists. A lot of people said Eric a lot of people wrote. Yeah. Said they felt like chief should play snowman deceit. Would he like to do acting? I think he'd be awesome. It's no, man. But I actually I actually have two white yokum. I have another country. Still yokum would be an awesome snowman. Yeah. Nagaa smart ass, and he's on he's a little over exposed right now. But oh, Luke, Luke, actually, Luke, Luke, Luke Luke would be fantastic. And and and Blake Shelton yell show. Likable. Great snowman he'd be great. And he and I guarantee you he could recite the movie the regional work for when you get on that to those Buford t mines good. I got a good be for. You give me yours. Kenny powers will. Yeah. Yeah. Danny McBride, Dan abroad is the right answer. Danny McBride is definitely Buford. T justice. Yeah. Because like the perfect personality the perfect like look everything about it, man. He's the perfect for t-. Australia would big anus and. Have a little leanest that I don't know. That's right. Call or not. But. Anyway, we'll hear was my for big little Lena's. I I was thinking we'll fail for big anus because he's like six six that galvanic use the leanness. Yeah. That would be very funny and those to those to which other I'm Percy you can say Zach last name that elephant. Micheals? He's a he's a fellow. He lived in Raleigh. Like, I does hometown number three for me. Yep. Hometown three homes, a big stop for you. He went to NC state. That's why whenever he plays a complete idiot. They're always an East Carolina fan. True. A couple of movies mentions, the pack and hangover. Yeah. And in in one of the hangover's he says I can't the third hangar. I can't go to secondary can't go on this trip. Because some the backstreet boy Noah Jones, one of those are in Raleigh Raleigh. Durham my mind is blown right now up this revelation here in the campaign, whatever it is where he runs for office against we'll feral he's he plays this kind of just complete idiot. And the guy was like a big East Carolina fan, and it's all because Zack what's to NC. State hates skill art. So we've decided that now we need to I really like McConnell. Hey as a call on bandit. So let's go with that. We'll go McConnell as band. It. We're going to white yoakum a snowman. Yup. We're going are we going to faith healer Anne Hathaway? I'll say can have an axe off. Yeah. We're going. Yeah. We'll Faeroes big anus. Yeah. We're going Zach galvanic note, mardi say his name it galifianakis. Proud of you. Yep. Yep. I've made it up as I went alone. And I think we've created one hell of a great cast. Oh, yeah. For new bandit telling you, I won't steal won't hear from.

We do little enough coffee were always get you through it. Now. He was a terrible cycle. I was explaining this to them all my buddies the that at the show that night the second show where. Okay. So I had had so much Jack and coke. Friday night that a barely slipped Friday night into Saturday. So I'm telling you a bear. I don't I don't really know if I actually went to sleep how combined did you to get Friday night. I got ninety minutes or so into bed. I'll I'll I'll say I got three hours so combined. So we're looking at we're looking at four and a half five hours total combined in the bed. I don't know that I was like leap that whole time. But I laid down and got up. And that's the problem was this. It wasn't that felt terrible. It was the coke because I don't I don't drink caffeine at night. I always have my morning coffee. It's like the sun coming up for me. It's the most vital part of my day. But I don't usually have any caffeine after maybe nine o'clock in. So I lay down in a I'm like, I can't in my mind was spinning because we had to show coming and then I get up and go do the show, and because I was such a mess. I was pounding coffee throughout the show. And so when we got done with the show, I got back to hotel room. I'm like, dude. I can't sleep. Hey shaken. Oh, yeah. Well, it also just a pure adrenaline of making award winning television and radio that alone show. Yeah. Miami didn't show, but I expect to get lost in the mail. Yeah.

Sports? with Katie Nolan

1:32:38 hr | Last month

Think of the Children

"Sports of katie. Nolan is fueled by gatorade whenever path. You take to greatness gatorade. They're there to fuel. It greatness starts with g. They did cut him a break. Tim tebow catch a path. Press passes because they're hanging in front of me. I saved them. Why why do we all save landlords. I don't know. But i have all of them and they're pretty cool. Welcome to sports is what i meant to say next. It's the podcast that end of the question. Mark start to the question. I'm katie nolan illustrious host. She's christina whoa high. I don't know why like that in the dock. And i'm ron burgundy she's christina i. He's travis on. I change it up a why did you do to change of all the things the doctor change up and you changed that up. Because the other voicemail last week was sentenced always and christina. So i wanted to allow. He actually has a resul house. Dots feels like performance. Change travis but we can get to it in that into what that is after the voice mail. Which is this is it. Here's today's question. Hi katie christina travis. This is ben living in boston. So i've kinda got a little crush on a bartender at my local watering hole. And they think there's at least a little something on her and now no katie as a woman who used to be a bartender. I'm sure you have to deal with this situation before. And my question is. Is there a way that i can give her my number or ask for hers without embarrassing her or bruni unwanted attention to her while he's trying to work or is this something that i should forget about and just be happy that i found a good bartender at a good bargain. I have a report with. thanks a lot. That'd be meet by. Ben i love you and i mean it and i want you to look at me look at me. I contact you You and i are going to make it through this. I'm going to give you some tough love here. I'm going to be honest with you. But it's because i love you and i mean it. The option b. is what you should do. You should be grateful that you have a good bartender that you have rapport with and you should. If it's like a bar in your neighborhood that you enjoy going to if if this person is very interested in you and you don't make a move but you're not you're flirting. It sounds like you guys are flirting. You stay flirty. If they really want it they'll start to drop hints. And then you can decide. It's kind of like dating a friend where you're like. I'm sacrificing something. A lot of people don't have a really good friendship for you. It's a really good bar with a bartender who at least has facial recognition of them and a moderate interest in their needs and thoughts. That's depending again on where you live because you never really know if you live in like a college town that's hard to find. Maybe it's easy for you where you're at the sounds like a pretty cool situation that you have. If you decide to take the risk. I will give you one piece of advice and that is when she is at work. Don't make it seem like you are treating it like you're on a date. Does that make sense. Don't show up at my work and sit at the bar and kind of hold me to the expectations of girlfriend slash. Hold yourself to the expectations of boyfriend before we've even breach it's like a lot of people use it as a substitute of they know where to find you. It's in a social setting can come eat a meal and it's there's no way for her to not be interested like if she wasn't interested it'd be bad service which is against her job. It's her job to give you good service so just if you are going to take the leap be conscious of keeping those two things separate your potential romantic interest in her and her duty to have to sit in there and serve you and talk to you in order for her to make a living. That's all i'll ask. There are ways to do it. You could slipper in note but you have to be very like i realize in this moment you are essentially backed into a corner. You are not physically backing her into a corner but if there is no interest from her and you and you ask to aggressively you are backing her into a corner. Because there's no way to be like Man i have to. This guy knows that. I'm gonna be here all the time. I like this job. He seems fine. You know you don't want just don't back into a corner. You both are being quiet. Am i being too harsh. No i think one thing that might be is. He's find out without making obvious if she's even single first of all we need establish a and there's more subtle ways to do it than so. You got a boyfriend yet. No one little sneaky way maybe hop on bumble and drop that mileage down to under one mile and see her profile pump. So that's not a bad idea. Look i'm telling you if the girl is interested she'll find a way i had to put the. I made sure dan new. I was single. Let's say that. I made sure he knew. I like kept bringing it up in conversation in what i thought at the time. We're subtle ways that now i'm like no i don't think i'm being subtle basically was like. Yeah well i'm i don't have anyone i have no one. How are you. i'm alone. I did. I said i'm alone out. But he's not ass in men honestly. Listen we tell you most things we are telling you most things just lists in the the problem is it's the listening also putting the two and two together and like okay. I'm was. I'm hearing what you're saying. Oh that's what she's meaning and we're not always the best that i know you're not i know but you can talk to katie's point of deciphering whether or not she's being overly nice because she is in a position of if i'm nice to you you give me tips and you pay me well and i make a living off of this. When you work in that sort of industry sometimes people are overly nice and so you need to decide whether or not you're mistaking this connection for her. Just being nice and being good at her job versus is she actually reciprocating what you might be feeling. I've been in situations where one of my guy friends did. This exact same thing asked out a local bartender. it was a bar that we frequented all the time. Our favorite place. They went on a few dates and it didn't work out. He took it really hard. Didn't go to that guy. And then it ruins ruin bar. 'cause she's not going to quit her job just because this is a bar do frequently now. It didn't work out and sent her. She could see him. he can't see back. Yeah it's you just have to take all of that into play. And i'm not saying like paralyze yourself with indecision. I'm just saying think through it. Make sure you've got the emotional. You said you're in boston right. I just i have to my instinct is saying that she that it may not be mutual. But i don't know. I'm not there and i can't tell you that all i can say is there's no harm no foul. If you're respectful immature. Yes just don't take a swing that you're later going to be like. Why'd i do that. Just be measured about it. Just be a honestly mature about it. I think i'm trying to think of the times that it 'cause i've i mean look. This is not me bragging about myself. Can i please speak honestly without having to qualify it by saying that. I know that i'm not prize. But i had guys hit on me. When i was a bartender. It's something about like. I've said this about men. If you take a guy that you would normally deem even through personality and looks and not rating people but like let's say they're seven on whatever your personal scale is in your brain and you put them behind a bar. They could get to attend it. Something about they're in control of a room. They're like watching people do their jobs if they're good at them is is attractive like watching an athlete. Play sports if that's the kind of thing you're into watching. Dan do comedy for me. I'm like man. It's been a really long time. Wanna go watch them do comedy again. Because he's good at it. And i find that attractive so watching a bartender be personable and charm. Entire bar can make them seem more attractive to you. But you don't know that person as well as it might feel like you do. Which is the point of an and it doesn't make them a liar some good at their job when you go to a bar you wanna relax and be comfortable and feel like you're with somebody that you can talk to if you want to. You don't have to talk to you don't want to. It's a delicate dance and being good at it is difficult My point was. I was trying to remember if there is anybody that had ever worked. Don't put your number on the wrist. Slid it over put a note. But you'd have to write a note it would have to be like. I don't wanna bother you about this at work but i would like see outside. Yeah you would have to make it known. That was not like a. Hey your hot number. Kind of say respectfully. Yeah and i've gotten guys that right mean things on the receipts to try to get you to call them. And you're like well that ever world i you can't negligence and go out with me why you can barely do it in person. There's no way nagging works in written form. Please don't try this again. The only time. I've ever given my number to somebody who asked is because i felt if i didn't i couldn't come up with a good way to say no or i don't know how to say no the meeting by phone and i'm like yeah i have a. I don't want them to think. I'm a big meena later. I'm like well. I'm just going to not respond. So now i'm a metoo so i'm jealous. That ben has like a local watering hole that he can go to and like report the barton. I wished i had a bar here. That like i go to like you. Walk in and the barton already knows you and travis there's one bristol's the size of your hand so there's nothing in that area but there's gotta be something somewhere around. Yeah i mean the second line of cheers that people forget is and they're always glad you came and if you if you're bartender knows your name and date them and then you guys break up our know that the bar staff is going to be glad you came so just keep that in mind. He gets it he's from boston. He knows you're breaking up with the entire bar. Not just her or him see. Can't i wish you the best band. you sound. very charming and probably d- handsome. I don't know but you i. I know the best will happen for you. I do want to like at least go for it so it doesn't think like regret it. You know what he's gonna do he's gonna write on a no listen to this. Podcast time stamp. She's going to listen to it and be like oh boy i quit my yes she quits her job. He never goes back to that bar again. There we go. Oh man. I miss it sometimes and then other times. I don't isn't that nice four of most things. What what travis. You can't at the very end of everything. Say the odds of everything we just laid out. I'm not saying just make it awkward everything but find enough information of. She's i find out if she's single. People don't ask a cocktail server. If she's single she's just gonna gossip about you over the french fries in the but if you you're friends with somebody else there then maybe they can somehow. Oh that's in second grade. My friend wants to know if your friend is single or my friend over there things. You're cute no do you wanna date me. Yes no circle one. I think that. Listen as george strait check. Yes or no work. I mean then. I know i just told you to listen. But don't listen to travis. Listen listen to. George strait check yes or no to sign. He just did that thing. Where you referenced. Something respected so that. I can attack your take but it's not your you're checking the and now take well. That's the ben. Thank you for calling. And i hope this is an well or don't ask i mean both are fine. Let us know either way. Yeah let us know. I guess Chavez listens to these now so he will actually be looking for an update from you. Ben if you have a question or somebody who works interests called. You can always leave us. Voicemail hits eight six zero five or six five five seven one. Hi going on back on thursday. It's wednesday for us but we've been recording it on thursday and then putting them out on friday and then now it's so it's going to people who are listening to this. It's on thursday. Now what how are you. How are things. i'm good. how are you fine. fine amari. good your eye. Makeup looks different today. isn't i just have mascara and nothing else. Maybe that's why that's it mascara has stopped working for me. It straightens my eyelashes now. I don't know what's up with my body chemistry. But i will curl them. They'll be curled. I'll put mascara on and they'll go straight. It's annoying especially because everybody and their mother has eyelash extensions now. And i've i haven't put on a fake eyelash in i've warned fake eyelashes once. I miss him. I've never know how to put them on once i put them on. I don't either but when somebody puts them on for me they look so much better on television than just your regular human eyelashes. The one thing that the one like makeup you go ahead traffic through vs you've got this. The eyelash like clamp thing. I don't understand how anybody that uses. Those lake used it enough time the first few times scary. You feel like you're time you get a speech from whatever person taught you to use it and they're like okay now if this hertz say something but you wanna push it right and then it becomes muscle memory. Then you're just like a at those curled. I love how though this is a sign of just like when we do this podcast. We're just throwing on raynham close. It's like the slightest little makeup or something of someone a haircut inside. Oh you look really nice. If i put on even just like tinted moisturizer travis's like you don't look awful today. You saw the other day. Well today it was. I had to add tv. I overslept today. Woke up to dambiyn. Like hey you know it's ten o'clock and certainly not as i am still sleeping. I thought you sleep like eleven. I usually do but when highly questionable on it films at noon. I have to find out what we're talking about. Figure out what my dumb ass is going to say on a show with two smarties Find out what's funny about it and then get myself looking. Not even i'm not even fully. I still slack off get missile freddie. I need to get my haircut you guys. I think i've said it enough now that i think next week it's going to be cut. It's just at the point. Now where i it's so long you can tell. It's not a person who hasn't gotten a haircut. A person who is like not trying not to get their haircut like yeah like now you accidentally off my head. Yeah look like a twelve year old. It's like your parents aren't taking good care of you. Go get your haircut. So i have to do that And i will. What else. So i got on facebook today. Okay for now. They're yeah we're friendly banter. We already answered the second. we say. Hello there used to be a cage door that would slide open or closed. But that's all right. Tmp got it was. It's the first back for school for my brother's kids And so you've got the photos And the oldest one is a freshman in high school. And i'm not doing well. Why because it makes me feel old see when you put seventh grade and fourth grade freshman. I thought you a freshman in college and two of my little cousins iced. I still call them little because in my mind they are still children. They're both entering high or college. You're still child but they watch. I'm what twelve year old zina still feels like. That's still feels like. I'm so much older. I'm twelve years older right now tv privileges for you this week academy macaroni tonight. But they They're entering college this week. Both moving into dorm rooms. And i feel very old. Yeah i don't have any nephews or nieces yet and boy am i grateful for that but at some point. I'm also going to be begging my brother to hurry up and give the family and niece or nephew because then my mom will stop. That's that's a fun day. Gave them myrtle. Hey you got one. I've travis if i could tell you how many times i've used that argument like we've got myrtle. My mom really does love myrtle. But i watching old home. Movies control that rhythmic gymnastics stuff. I saw so many clips of like my mom with me as a baby and man. My mom's great with a baby. Oh i don't recognize that in me but she is so good at taking care of a baby which might explain a few things about me and my baby and then for some reason okay. My niece the school that she's in they don't go to school. It doesn't start till nine. Isn't that what it always was. I don't go for the stomach. Was once i get to middle. School is seven thirty five. I was i. Maybe it was very early like six. Am was always weird or because it was older the the it was later it was earlier. The older uganda and every study of like adolescent sleep patterns. Is that like you need it. More and children naturally wake up earlier anyway. So it yeah. So it's it's backwards. But i'm sure there's a reason that makes sense like work and stuff like dropping kids. I don't know either way waking up early for school man. there wasn't. I probably made it to homeroom four times in high school. So i never had an issue in this two shows the sports news that i was i wake up at six. Am go downstairs and watch sports center and get dressed like during the commercial breaks and then leave at seven. Yeah i feel like. That's all my memories of sportscenter are from getting ready for school in the morning. I've told the story before about how my brother ran down the stairs. Because my dad was like cavs top ten's on and my brother ran down the stairs and slipped and fell and cracked his skull on all my god and i was getting ready for school in. This is back when my mom cut my hair to be. You know really short and so getting ready meant that my mom had to blow dry. It had to blow dry it into this cloth. Otherwise i just had this. I just looked like a beetle. Not the not the bug. The singer and so i. I didn't know how to do it but my mom did. And so. I remember. And i remember this hating myself for it as i was doing it but my brother was being carted off to the hospital. And i was like. Who's going to do my like i do you understand. I get leased relentlessly for this every day. When it's done perfectly. I go to school like this. I'm gonna get laughed out of the building. I understand kevin might be in pain but you gave me. You signed up for this life lady. You said my hair was going to be like this and when you said that when you made that decision you signed yourself up for life where yes doing. Your daughter's hair has to take precedent because she's already getting made fun of relentlessly as it is. That's why you should have went and fell down the stairs and culture scoping you. It's probably why. I threw myself down the stairs when i hurt my ankle because they seem to take by this exactly they by injuries so play by this i would have been late for school every morning but by the time i was able to drive myself i was a senior in high school by parents. Got me my first car We just had nowhere to park. We had plenty of parking but my sister. She's three years younger than me. So she was a freshman at the time. So i By the time. I was able to driving could have somebody else in the car. So i would drive my sister to school with me every morning. We are the exact opposite. She needs to be there twenty minutes early. She's a straight a. Student like five point. Oh she's like super super smart. I didn't really take that approach. And so on the way to school she would be like. We have to go faster to get there. We're gonna be late. Oh my god like why. Why are you going so slow. Why are you dilly-dallying. So one morning. I remember because it says because why i don't wanna be so 'cause i'm dreading walking in new orleans perfectly explains how much how little i cared. And how much she cared were on the way to school. I hit a bump. And i got a flat tire and i have it. I know that. I'm driving on a flat tire and so i asked my sister said hey. Can you poke your head out the window and see if the front tires flat. Because i don't know what i'm going to be able to do about this. And she was like no we have. I'm gonna miss homeroom like we've gotta get there. Okay fine so we're like right at the bottom of my schools driveway. I make it up to the top but just barely. I don't even have time to turn the car off and ask my sister for help. She's already out the car running to like through the front doors of the school so she's not leaving for home room not leave for home room. Meanwhile i'm like don't worry i've got the flat to hire. I guess so. I like i. I walked inside and was like hey. Can someone help me with this flat tire. I wasn't even park my car in my parking spot. Because i couldn't get it in there and they were like. Yeah we're going to. I watched so much the story. All i can hear is that stupid gecko going somebody you you send my parking spot. We designated part. Did you actually have a reserve only because we did. The school was so small. I graduated with like ninety something people so we might go. That many parking like we didn't need that much parking to begin with anyway. So oh my god the our school the freshman or underclassmen if you could drive had to park in the bag and the seniors and juniors rod in the front yeah. I didn't have a very big. I remember renting spot from a person who lived next to the school. Parking in their these people would just sell spots in their driveway. that's unreal. yeah. I mean i went to a big high school. We used to be a north and south. And then by the time i went there. We weren't anymore. So wow big school but what. We're talking about being afraid. Let you know what happened to me yesterday. Okay let's hear it so. I oh my god i just read it. How little little. As i don't know how old but i would say under five for sure. Okay story so. I care so little about my appearance when i go out in public i like do for you the listeners who can't see i wear these same red sweatpants that i have on right now these right there. Same with me but minor blah. I wear these same rental adidas. Like i dunno old sweatpants that i've had for god knows how long i wear like rip shirts mismatched. Fuzzy socks slippers. I don't care. I don't care about you hate it. Why do you hate it. I hate when people were different socks. You need to wear the matching socks. Don't wear yellow crane saugus. Naturally i don't match my t shirts to my sweatpants. I don't care. I'm going to the girl restore am just there to get my stuff and get out. So yeah i. I was wearing these sweat pads. I had on like my boyfriend's baggy t. shirt and slippers. My hair's a mess. I have no makeup on. I get in the elevator for my apartment building it. I'm on the third floor. So we stop on the second and a mom and two of her children get in baby and had to abandon a child between one and four one five. It was walking and talking so okay. I'm standing in there and i could already tell that the mom and the daughter. The kid had been arguing about something because she's pouting and mom is saying you know it'll be fine. You're fine we get out and we're walking through the lobby. And i hear the little girl go but she's wearing her. Pj's in public. Oh my god. I was a great point. That kids going to be a lawyer. So i turned around and her mom something to say. H my face. The ari and i went. Oh my slippers. Because then indeed i am wearing my. Pj's public yes. She's not wrong wrong. But you should be apologizing to the mall. you should have turned around and been like. Oh sorry about when you guys saw me. Come and you're like that's not going to help my argument. Grown lady dressed in her pajamas. After we just thought. I was offended and i was like no no. I am not offended. Because i give that little girl credit. She saw what she wanted. Which is what. I was wearing said. Mom look at that. Why can't i be that. I would have gotten grounded for talking back. But i'm making valid point. This woman is wearing pyjamas. she's a grown woman and she's wearing her. Pj's in public. Why can't i at first. When i saw this on the rundown i had one take. I now a different taking the take tickets. You still in your apartment building that does not public. You can go. That's a hard to count. That's not out in public. You can walking into the parking lot area like we were going out into the public area. Yeah but had you. If you were at the grocery store in this could set it up like all right. Yeah no i understand. I mean might have a point like you're still even still. It doesn't look. Let me tell you what hurts is when it comes out of nowhere and it's for middle school aged middle groups of middle. They terrified if you can avoid walking past them. Please do because. I remember fourth of july a couple years ago i was like china height myself up to go out. I really didn't want to. And i was in hoboken and i'd have to go all by myself into the city to meet people who had been drinking all day so i'd give myself like a monk. Eighty go do this. And so i made myself. I got all cute. Golic festively cute. Did my make up. My hair was curled. But i was like take a shot be confident and i walked out of my house to get my uber and like four or five middle schoolers on bikes road and one kid laughed really loud and then another kid goes your solo and and i just stopped in the middle of the street and was like why. Turn around and go home. I wasn't but you but you have to remember that. That's the evolution of children. You get to an age. We find out that your words means stuff and but you don't realize that you shouldn't just constantly have an effect on people that are you don't know it was. It stayed with me. It hurt a watts. It hurt even more that it was. It was probably the exact same group of kids. Who made fun of me. When i was their age but then i just was like go. Get drunk and i did do that. This wasn't like do what i do. This is learn from my mistakes. But man yeah. If i had a little kid. I was in my. Pj's i would laugh. Because i've been through now that i've been through. Yeah that's rough. When i got my first backseat shot. I got it in my car. So i assumed second dose team derna. What up that. I was going to get the shot in my car again. So i was wearing some sweat. Shorts and a tee shirt wasn't looking like a scrub but it definitely wasn't interested in public. Yeah and the second shot. You had to go inside. That didn't appreciate the lack of a heads up. Should have put on a little card. Thank you let them know no. I didn't At least middle schoolers around to say you were ugly. World is different post cove it and we're not even post yet but like i used to. At the beginning. I would be putting on jeans every time. I still try to put on jeans. Every time i go to the dog. The dog park which is now why. When i put genes on myrtle goes nuts. I'm like i got normalized genes in this house. Because she just thinks it means he gets to go play with other dogs. I used to put them on when i walked her. And then. I got to a point where i'm like. Okay if anyone has something to say about me doing a lap of around my apartment in sweatpants adidas slides than they can call me. They can take it up with me. I just i care so little about like. I've always worn what i wanted. I haven't like. I have such different style of clothing than like my sister and my mom. Some of my best friends i just. I don't care what if. I'm comfortable my first and foremost if i'm comfortable that i don't care as long as i like what i'm wearing. I start developing personal style. That can evolve. Because i don't have it whenever i have to go to a red-carpet i'm like your guess is as good as mine i. I don't know what kind of say your fashion is. I'm like i don't know. I don't dressing up for things i'm very. I'll tell you if it looks good on me. But i'm not yet but there are things like i'll look at myself at an outfit that i'm like no this looks dumb on me and the person who's helping me is like no way this and if they're convincing enough and i wear years later i'll see the picture of me in that outfit and i'll be like that outfit is so cool but at the time i'm i'm so behind so that to me proves that i genuinely just needs somebody who knows what they're doing in that department to tell me what to do. I don't have personal style. I just like to be covered up. And i don't know good looking cute enough where i struggle is summertime where you want to go out but look nice like i have lots of like t shirts and i can just throw on a pair of shorts but like if i like go on a date or something summertime and i don't have here like shorts like it's that's where i struggle is the summertime nice clothing ads my like wintertime thrown jeans and a plaid button up of some kind and i'm good to go but it's the summertime. Where stroke on your feet so a lot of times. It's just like the slip on bands or that's like all where those with jeans and shorts but then in the wintertime. sometimes if it's wintertime cold. I have a couple of cole haan sneakers at all wear. Oh second or third. I am a big fan of cole. Haan boy i didn't know i also have like a borderline obsession with fun. Dress socks in the. That's easy. He adds up. I of like fifty years away session. I think yeah that's fun. We'd like that's for weddings and stuff. That's not fair. no you could wear like jeans. Invite up when i go into work. That's fine. What a fun thing travis. With the socks. I just said today on highly questionable that i don't know how to wear socks. I understand that they're in now like showing your socks Every time i do it. I look Like a mistake doesn't look like i did it on purpose. Kids nowadays is like the thing they were in their nike's or whatever like the socks are like showing. That's saying you're supposed to share your socks now. it looks. I put putting looks cool on them it looks. I don't think it does. Because i'm so like i'm stuck to what we did. I don't think it's cool even though the masses think it's like i remember having a make my own ankle socks back then. They didn't have no show sock. Yeah i it is. I wear socks over when it's only when i'm wearing leggings. Though do i wear socks. Travis hates this. Don't get worked up into a lather to pull them up over my leggings but in any other situation unless i'm wearing like tall boots to where they're gonna like rubbing against my ankle or something. I don't like my socks showing what's up with me. Oh i don't know. I feel like i've done nothing since we talked last because it was really only two days ago while it really. What about four days ago. You went saw pablo exactly. I finished in treatment. It's done i came around on that other remember. I told you there was a new therapist in the new season. And that i wasn't sure yet i came around on it. She's great. it's an incredible sees. No oh my god you remember because i definitely citizens sweetest thing. I assume you guys tune out. When i do this. Yeah it's a really good show. And i really recommend that if you like good writing and if you don't then don't watch reality shows no i don't like good writing i know but it's like like reality shows for that reason i don't know reality shows though you're not watching them and paying attention to every single word they say. Are you zone out. Sometimes you think about yourself think about other things this show you have to like. Turn your brain off and focus on someone else's problems which for me feels like a vacation along those same lines Have you ever gone back and re watched like. Let's say a season of tv. Show that you really liked and there are episodes. You completely you ask me right now. What happened in stranger. Things season one which i watched and loved. I have no idea. Because i felt like i love the show. I was so invested. I watched it while it was happening. And i do this with entourage all the time. I'll go back and it's one of those shows right. Well that's a very much is watch you. I'm just saying meant you'd all. The problems are resolved by the end of the episode. There's a cool cameo some hot woman that's unattainable becomes the new it girl and then it's very much a show that you don't have to focus on everything they're saying kind of show but there are episode like i watched this religiously and binged watched it and paid attention to it and then i'll go back. I'm like wait. When did this happen. Who is that That happens all the time. Isn't that i've just feel like this weird. It is but it. It's also like how much stuff is in here. Our brains that we like need to make room for. And i used to always yell at myself because i remembered the lyrics to every song but i can't remember like my dad's birthday. Yeah or like the now just studied twenty minutes ago for an exam and so now when i'm a when i'm like forgetting a tv show instead of seeing it as like man. Why do i forget. I'm like oh hey thanks brain for doing the thing. I wish you did with song lyrics which is forget them and make room for other stuff. Yeah file those anytime it. Did your parents ever like if you messed up on a test or something like you can remember. These song lurks became. Remember these questions use that as you're like oh you remember those pointless things and you can't remember when it comes time to take a test mike. Yeah but i bet you know justin timberlake birthday. That's mom sounds like when she's yelling at me she talks like still my parents bertha. It's like why have facebook still I honestly haven't been on facebook in. I haven't been on facebook as myself in many years. I for birthdays. Unless yeah i if i have a notification that usually tells me like hey so and so's birthday is today that i'll check it but i i'm so bad with like wishing people happy birthday and other. That sounds bad. But i am so bad with remembering to tell people happy birthday. I've even see on facebook like. Hey it's your friend. Taylor's birthday and then i don't. I don't go wish her. I just didn't want to have to deal with the friend. Requests and deciding who to say who gets to just a very weird thing. Request is still pending. That's a different quests. I mean my my profile pictures still from garbage time. I haven't changed it. It's either read idea. What mine is. Because i haven't had. I never like. I always saw people like accepting friendly work with and that makes sense to me on its face and then the other half musical. Then what is the keeping me separate from public me. It was just like a. I don't want to have to do this dance every time so i just didn't keep checking i don't maybe that's why daniel snyder hasn't accepted my request. Because i don't go on. My facebook doesn't go on. He hasn't he does he. Wants to keep it separated. I'd like to think because katie doesn't go on her facebook that that's why he has an except i don't know what i'm choking on but it is unpleasant. Don't die please. what else have i done in the last few days read. I'm reading another book but it's not like a cool book. It's like a book. They referenced a lot on treatment. That was like i'll read that. But it's like an old psychology book and so while there are some truths that still ring true. There's a lotta like old ways of thinking in it like there's this whole part about how any no woman would get her nipple pierce if everything was about. Her childhood was good and it was like well. What is this. Wait a second making valid points. Two seconds those paragraph about. What are we doing here. It's just you could see all the shame that still involved in those things back then boy the world. We're all trying to figure it out. Have been since the donna time. Ain't it something anything else now. No okay well. That was bantering friend. Louis which is really what the whole podcast is. Now just kidding. We have a lot of things in the podcast today. Some of which travis what what are some of which an update on megan and her status playing on the united states national team record spoke on last time. I don't know can't really t's a mistake. You made last week. Tim tibo oh we have to. I knew he was. He's our lebron. Mlb getting a little Interesting talk to say it. It's we're going to look. That's a minefield that topic. When you said we're gonna talk on the gas. I was like. I've kind of backed myself into a corner here because some of the step well hold it christina because when you see it don't don't pick on it you sorry for yelling It's okay we'll get to it. What else an update on the taunting rule and Nfl you roll your eyes. No one sees that. I but i also went which i think part of it. Yeah anyway continue throat role. I can compare myself to jamal adams. We'll find out why. Okay i mean how coming up. I bet i bet you nothing in common with yet but i'll bet you. That's not a tease. You do that all the time. You gotta give the part of it that makes it. It's okay we'll get better. It's just a broadcasts but before we get to all that stuff that we're going to get better at as we go. Today's podcast that you love so much brought to you by simply safe. So travis dare. I ask how you'd like me to talk about simplisafe in honor of the read it in honor of meeting stole it from Yeah i'm giving them credit. Well all read. It didn't come up with one idea. An honor of the sports right at somebody on there. A doctor with a bad bedside manner travis. You've got no you've never had to do. Mla format did you. Because you don't have the site a source. No i actually did was was emily because then i go to a website called citation machine dot com all the stuff. Yep who didn't all right doctor at bedside manner how you doing today. Good listen before we talk about the results of your tests and we do need to talk about them. I need to talk to you about simply safe when simplisafe home security founders chad and eleanor lawrence design their first carry system in their kitchen. They did it for a very personal reason. Their friends just had their home. Broken into i happens happens. I have nothing to say to make you feel better about it. Happening i just want you to know that does happen. They were struggling to find security system. That was simple to set up. Would make them feel safe again. Which i understand making people feel safe is with simplisafe has been doing ever since that moment. Fifteen years ago by the way you results concerning you have anything to save yourself. A can i talk. Can you tell me about the results. Well why don't you tell me about the results because there's no way you don't know what's been going on. Did you lie to me. And the thing is simply safe just makes it so easy. It takes two minutes to customize system on their website simplisafe dot com slash nolan. That's their website. That's not a promo code. That's if you can only order this. If you go to simplisafe dot com slash nolan. Everybody knows that. Are you pushing product. While i'm not pushing product are you pressuring ally about told me you drink once a week and then you wrote next to it. Socially that doesn't mean anything to me. We both know you're lying and lying. Your doctor is not okay back to simply safe. They have highly trained security experts whenever you need them whether that's during a fire a burglary a medal emergency medical emergency or even just you know some other lie. You told. Maybe your pants are on fire. Because you're such a liar. You could probably. I don't know how they'd help you. But i bet they'd try. Do you think. I have a bad bedside manner because everybody else in this world qods you. I'm trying to be real with you. How many drinks per week do you have once socially okay. And how about non socially couple.

I looked at your file. I think at least can do that. I will set the security. So then when i go to the bar for my one social drink that there's you wearing a mask. Yep that's simplisafe dot com slash nolan. These are hard because they get sent to simply safe and sometimes when they're like hey a guy who hates person. Then you're like well. I have to also sell the products. And sometimes they get mad but we'll see we'll see we'll see. Tell me about the news. okay what how. Oh it's tim. Tim has been released by the jaguars they cut him like. First thing tuesday morning even they didn't wait considered even away. Which i guess actually is better because you don't want to go through practice and then get cut but why say you're gonna do it at four. No that's just the deadline. So maybe they're maybe there's like two players where you're like. They did cut him a break. Tim tebow can't catch a break. Just not a pass. This fall tim attempt to return to the. Nfl's a tight end after years of playing quarterback is will end also. Baseball is over the jacksonville. Jaguars released the two thousand and seven heisman. Trophy winner tuesday as part of the first round of roster cuts tibo posted a message on twitter shortly after he was released in which he thanked the jaguars for giving them a chance quote thankful for the highs and even the lows the opportunities and the setbacks tibo wrote. I've never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure. And i'm grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream thank you to the jaguars organization and everyone who has supported me in this journey and we know that god works all things together for good romans. Eight twenty eight okay. Well by after he got cut. It's like let's just bash him. Tibo like all right travis. I'm starting to notice that it's starting to your very sensitive when people say anything. Negative about tim tibo. It was a point that i tripped over last week. Trying to make to you. But i'm curious to know why it is. You think tim t-boz getting picked on. While i know why but i just don't get like why would somebody trying something. Why would you want to put that. Put him down for and basha so he tried to give football one last shot at a different position the way the world works people. Put down in bash. Anybody who does anything. That's i think in. The funny thing is is growing up. I was not attempt fan mostly because he played for florida beat ohio state status freshman year so irrationally just didn't like him but now i'm like i think i'm president of fan club. I'm not sure. I think so too. I think everybody agrees you are the president of his fan club and look i've met him. He's very nice. He was very nice as far as our personal interaction went which they didn't run very deep but he'd seemed very kind. I was a little uncomfortable by the worship for him that i've witnessed from other people. It people like reaching out to touch him in like asking him for their blessing and not. That's not me. Judging religion i grew up in a religious house. Not you know a strict religious house but we grew up catholic. It just felt very. I dunno that he decided to come out of retirement very randomly just to play tight on. I thought it was funny. I never thought it was going to go very far. What's that a lot of. People wanted him to try to be tight end back when he insisted he was a quarterback and he refused to do it and then he came back and did it and people were like. Yeah you should not years ago. I think that's why the one thing that bothered me was the whole. He stealing a spot. Can we be clear that more than one thing bothering you do. This whole thing has upset you from day. One anything short of tim tebow being named the starting tight end was a slight. No i was okay. I didn't think he was gonna make the roster. But i was okay with people you stealing a spike. He's if he made the roster he wouldn't be stealing spot and people wouldn't be saying that i don't think but if he if he was actually good then i wouldn't have enough to play that position. I think a lot of people wanted him to not get cut so then they could go. Oh urban meyer. Keeping tim tebow which maybe they would have. But then guess who's in control of the narrative. Then tim tebow good enough to make it to the football team. Go just be good enough to fee on the sh shut me. Basically people are always gonna say something always you just have to be like well. Are these people right. Are they wrong. And i think on this one. There's a lot of people who called it and then it happened and then now they're like people love to say told you so and that's what's happening now but it's it'll go away in a few weeks anyway. Yeah if he stops trying to play sports. If there's another sport that he's dreamt of gopher give it a try you know what i think. I think that it's just like a beer league. Ab- you could be owning a beer league somewhere you could be. The best people could clamoring to play with you in a pickup game of whatever. You wanna play. Tim tebow but instead you just go do that. Just go be the biggest fish. Yeah i think that it's unfortunate. That drives your dreams. Travis driver and make gymnastics to your to do. Wait travis. i am not what point the the point that he made about how people were basically making fun of an athlete. Who wanted to try something. I'm not making fun of the fact that a guy wanted to come out of retirement and try it because he's not a bad ashley. I just thought it was silly that why why now why i it was. Just why y and he's he clearly showed he wasn't good enough. So katie whenever a shot somewhere so to have more. You wanna say. I'm done urban. Meyer said we knew that was an uphill battle for tim. Players loved him. Locker room loved him but it was the right thing. it's like. Yeah all right. He's a great guy. He just had a good tight ahead. Sure sure and i don't see the everybody's just got chill on him a little. I'll get over it. I don't think you will. But i will talking about it again next week. What because there's going to be like games and stuff so yeah okay. What else happened So do you remember the whole taunting the point of emphasis on it. So giants owner. John mara is one of the people that is on the competition committee and he came out and said that they were We get kind of sick and tired of talking. That goes on from time to time on the field. We try to balance the sportsmanship with allowing the players to have fun. There's always a fine line there but none of us like to see that. It's just a question of whether you can have rules that can be enforced and without taking the fun out of the game too but nobody wants to see a player taunting another player. I know i certainly don't and to your point you always say who's we the competition the first time he said. It's yeah so i did a little. The competition committee includes Rich mckay owner of the falcons. John mayer owner of the giant stephen jones jerry's son who's also president mark murphy. The packers as some of the bears than mike. Tomlin john. elway sean payton. And ron rivera mike. Maybe the competition committee should have a couple players on that allowed. They would never say that allowed you that i mean it's the nfl you make up your own rules right. You allow anything. They're not going to allow that. Then ron rivera came out and was like you know a speaking afford also in His big thing is we. Don't need the pop warner and pee wee football kids seeing this That's always the buddy children. Because i'm marching in their culture. It's it's it exists a lot of it. The funny thing is that the one that they're they keep talking about is the one in the super bowl when what's his face. Antoine winfield yes. When winfield did to tyree kale hill what tyreek hill had done to him and he gave him the peace sign which is just a peace sign awesome and they said that that was the thing that made them like. Yeah we got to get this out of our game and like look when we talk about sports and other countries or it's sports in other situations and some of the words being used in taunting. That's a different conversation. I think think that most of us would agree that we don't want football players to be using racial slurs and derogatory words to talk to each other on the field that being said flipping a guy a peace sign because he did it to you. Earlier in the season on the biggest stage in the sport is not something that would make me think we needed more rules. And it's just weird that these owners who are billionaires. I think are all of them. Billy can you just safely. Say that or do i have to say these owners who have lots of money and control spend it trying to force respect like not taunting if you really wanted to get that mentality out of the game would take a lot of other behind the scenes. Smaller moves than just making a rule. That's like you're not to. It's weird that somebody so competitive because in order to get that much money you do have to be pretty competitive in this capitalist society. We live in the In bo made a great point that these some of these guys are second generation. Money that don't have the same understanding of it as the people who earned it before them but you have to have some sense of enjoying competition and like you know taking taunting is just being like take that well. So i when i was reading this what i think is funny as you're telling a bunch of grown men who to your point they have to love competition that's how they got to the highest level of competition in this sport They should see the way. I play drinking games with a bunch of my friends. And how like competitive and aggressive. I can get and then tell a bunch of grown men who worked there but off for an entire game that if you make a great play can't say anything to the other players there hell yeah exactly bodies on the lives. That'd be like hey don't be proud of yourself when you finally get that guy back competition and i think that if as long as it. I'll say what my boyfriend told me. One of the first times we played drinking games and we opposite teams. And i got a little too competitive. He said There's a way to talk smack and then there's a way to not and You just got to be respectful as long as it's all in good fun is safe. Fun in air quotes competition like. You're not being disrespectful. You're not using racial slurs or derogatory terms. If it's all within good clean fun of competition why do we care. I know they're unrelated. It just frustrates me. When it's like owners want them want to tell players that they have to not taunt because of the kids. They want to be respectful because of the kids. But then there's like make tickets cheaper so you can go to the game. Yes that but also. It's all hypocrisy because it's like what about when there's an issue with a player off the field that fans would like you to address exactly and they're like no it's fine he's fine. I think you shouldn't out part your games. Yeah kids see that. So it's like don't tell me it's odd that they're choosing known as the prime example of how to set the example for kids when there are so many other aspects so we could be looking at where it's like. Hey also ella wellheads playing pee wee football barely. Any of them are anymore. Aren't they isn't like pee. Wee football just. Oh i don't know about that but can we. Before he finished this topic. I want to dive quickly. Into what drinking game do you really get route up. The most pristine i need. We need to get more into this Well i was playing. While i was playing flip cup the last time that i got really aggressive but pretty much any drinking game. I love competition. I love playing sports. And now. Because i am a washed up athlete i choose to choose to play drinking games so because i know why washed so i therefore i could no longer participate in the competition of the sports. I grew up playing. I now turn to drinking games and those drinking games are of the many variety. I can play beer pong flip cup cornhole with a drink in my hand. That's a drinking so and are you a sore loser to then No ashley really i. I don't think so. I think that it depends if the opponent is being a sore winner like rubbing it in my face. Then i'm gonna get mad like why just as the winner you don't like as well i was. I'm a respectful winner. But i'm not i'm not gonna rub it in your face but if you rub it in my face that i'm going to be a sore loser i just wanted to say on the record. I feel taunted by nfl owners. All the time. So i loud anymore. I'd like to throw a flag on the play. yeah. I'd like to stop being personally victimized by the nfl owners. Thank you yes. You're making the referees already. Have a heart of job as it is now. If the police have someone was taunting or not it will also what constitutes a taunton. Can they say like. I don't know like can they after a plane like. Yeah i did it. Is that taunting or like what spin the ball. That's ever happened so i don't think they've ever had on the anyone's ever said yeah. I did it. I signal i down. I don't know. I don't know i this feel so stupid. It's so dumb. There's plenty of other things that they should emphasize that should be their points of emphasis before this. But okay then you put some players on competition committee or at least a former a former player to it's former player. I think is a lot more likely that an active player they'll never have an active player By the way winfield junior was fined for the peace sign host for peace side. Come on for the peace out that had been done to him. But i just trying to spread peace. No fun league. That's for sure. What else travis. So now onto. Jamal adams in how i feel. I can compare myself to him. Okay you're at how with. I've been waiting with baited breath so it took five months negotiations thirty million dollars and guarantees and a piece of mother motherly advice for jamal adams to get his deal. Done michelle adams had helped push the deal through Jamal adams said she said my full name. When my mother says my full name i think i need to pay attention that you can relate to my will. My mom was always travis. Abram and then when i was like feeling cocky than i'd go rot cold the end and then i'd iran. She used full name like first middle and last name she would know she would just say i i and middle on me. And when she she dropped the when she is the middle name with it. That's when i was like. Oh we must stop I do that to myself. I don't think. I don't know if my mom ever did it to me but whenever i do something really dumb i go catherine bethnal and oh but i don't know if i do that because my mom did or if it's just because it's a thing that people's moms do. I don't think my mom used it very often with me. I think if anything it was just like. I would make like stupid mistakes like accidentally backed the car up into the mailbox when i first got my driver's license and instead of and who has the trash no me to those little things. Mike online spied so start a on the stone. My mom never say christina elizabeth. It was always my dad going. Jesus christ chris data so there is a difference when my dad said that i was like so shout moms and dads but wait how the whole story he didn't finish the actual story so she texted him a paragraph and told me that you don't have to prove anything to anybody you did enough. We're happy as long as my family's happy and i'm happy. I can come and do what i love to do. That's all that matters to me travis. Cut the story off to get to the part where he gets to jamal adams who surprise. Let's the better part is says you though says you paragraph He got his bag. Yeah that's really. The takeaway is good for jamal. Pagan paid the deal. A volley of seventy two million over four years twenty million signing bonus which includes thirty eight million guaranteed so all of you who tuned in to find out the specifics of a contract. Because you know that's what we bring to you here on sports there. Those are courtesy of travelers sports here. Nobody says that more news in a second but today's podcast is also brought to sponsor. So travis tell me how you want me to the people about sponsor and your gatorade add voice. Gatorade dell's there are many paths to greatness. How you get there is up to you. Sometimes you got grinded out to get up early and put in the work even when you're not feeling one hundred one hundred one then it hundred p. Sometimes it takes take staying focused on a goal knowing where you want to be in that you'll have to pour everything in to get their other types. You just need to dig deep. Show some guts to be brave and never let anything stand in the way of what you can accomplish. Then there are the days you just have to get in the gym and see some gains put in all the reps and get stronger each day. But whatever path you take to greatness. Gatorade is there to help fuel. The journey because greatness starts with j all right what else. Poor josh rosen man. How many teams has josh rosen bandwidth. Since he was drafted. the fish. This was his fourth house loved. He was he was drafted it the tenth overall pick in two thousand eighteen. He went from what the cards to the dolphins dolphins right to. He's in the bucks practice squad to the bucks parts. Now with the forty niners. I when josh rosen was first drafted he was the one who In his post getting Not right when he walked off stage his post. Getting drafted interview was basically like every team. That drafted before me made a big mistake. Not picking may because he felt like he should have been drafted like top three I i like to that. And i like i wish the best for him and it's just what i'm so sad for him. He's got like. I truly fell. When he went to the dolphins i felt like he just wasn't getting the shot he deserved. Because i felt like he's an actual good quarterback but now at every time he goes to a different team. I see things like he wasn't performing or obviously underperforming and practice and this and that so is he just not good. I think i'm wrong. I think he's not good. Let's hope he gets drafted by the cardinals. The cardinal is ethically bad the fire the coach after one year would just fall. It was the situation he was dealt. And then they take color murray. So i'm like oh a fair shake and then it's like yeah then. He went to the dolphins and the draft. One time one team. It's like maybe not fair shake on a bad team. Maybe there's a change of scenery and then it's like the dolphins but then the dolphins drafted to and they want him to play. Not i just feel bad for him due to. How do we go back to not feeling like most sports stories. Now that before. I'd be like oh you can make a joke about this now. I'm just like oh right. Okay because i thought he let's see what a signing bonus music you're gonna move all around the united states. I don't i feel all the places that he went. You had eleven million dollars signing bonus drafted makes me feel a little better. Yeah i mean on the bright side. You seen a lot of the country so nice place arizona arizona emmy tampa tampa. You're listening. tampa is nice place. It's probably not the worst miami. You like miami better than middleware connecticut. Yeah i mean. I've lived in ohio indiana now. That's why i'm saying. What about you screams miami to me. You're allowed to like what you like. You don't have to just like the stuff other people say is i love the sunshine in the water. Yeah there's a lot of other stuff too well. I love georgia georgia and florida. What in the world does that have to do with says who you don't to ever been there. Shorts and florida are like jelly. It might be the capital. I don't know that seems like something we need to explore is florida the capital. I feel like california has a lot of Feel like the mid. West has a lot of george to They're all different genres of george shorts capital the world Gainesville florida see one thing here. He just googled it. And now we're going to say that because some website that won't exist tomorrow said that they were the torch capital of the world. You are this listen. Confirmation and florida love their. I can george. Yeah but florida is another. It's another place down there. It's like some little country. Okay fine. I fight with you. Take my word on this. That's how i end literally. Every argument. I just don't want to here. Yeah just you're right. You're right and i'm wrong. Curated shorts okay. What else So a man that was working for Pj tour stole thousands of tickets. For the uso ben and sold bomb and profited more than a million dollars in apparently the fbi was the one that like informed the pga about this. What so he sold. He sold three point. Four million dollars worth of stolen tickets so a former employee of professional golf's governing bodies still thousands of highly coveted tickets to one of the sports for mayor. Events sold them year after year and pocketed profit of more than one million federal employees said. Prosecutors accused robert fryer the former assistant director in the us golf association us the taking office of conspiring with two eastern pennsylvania ticket resale companies to provide twenty three thousand passes to use men's open between two thousand and thirteen thousand nineteen. That is are there total. Damn that's a lot i get. If like each year a couple disappeared. Sure they allegedly paid him one point one. Five million for his efforts in resold tickets for combined profit of one point seven million. They did not. Prosecutors did not identify either of the implicated ticket resale businesses in announcing the charges but the acting. Us attorney accused fryer of exploiting both fans and his position at the us. I mean that's a fair accusation being levied in his direction. Dang i just wanna know how how does the. Us not learned of the theft when contacted by federal authorities. Over months ago they've taken steps since to implement a new ticketing platform. I mean that is like he got away with that for a long time From twenty thirteen north of three thousand tickets a year man point four million dollars worth of stolen tickets. That's the charges of conspiracy as well as wire and mail fraud conviction on the most serious In federal prison for up to twenty something tells me I mean what a what a crime. What a weird and specific alleged crime if it like you. Do you think that he does this in other walks of life or do you think that this this gulf thing was his whole rack of this was it because he worked for the us right. That's right that's right but if you're going to do it gosh i i think you need to play like all right. We're gonna be on the criminal side for a second here if you're gonna do it alleged to be you need to play a long game and only steel like you can't seal twenty-three can't still three thousand tickets. I mean yes you can and you know what says that. He ran the seven years that he did it. He did it for sure. But i feel like i it. It doesn't seem like he would have been caught earlier. Had he done. It's like i think he kind of nailed it. He might have gotten greedy. It's like maybe if once you get away with that many tickets in the first year maybe you should go down every year. But i don't know that's i don't know why it's weird now. The titles don't really mean anything because associate director right. That was his title. Yes sounds to me or assistant director. Oh i said high up enough but it feels like nowadays. That could be the entry level position like i don't actually know what the assistant director does. The assistant director of the ticketing office associate gets slapped on so many. I know sodas assistant assistant can mean nothing can mean little. It can mean like that means. They're younger but it can also mean like no they're actually pretty high up there second-in-command. It's very confusing the way we title things now. I'm wondering if it's easier in golf. Because i don't know if they like. Have the exact amount of tickets every year because there's no seats each year. This guy even got into golf. You wonder if he got into golf in the first place because he was like what sport can i rise through the ranks of just. He'll all themselves. What if the whole thing was a long con- pro more. Is it more of a breaking bad. Whereas the situation of his life dictated that he was going to end a four and a what trabzonspor love breaking. Just dumb of you for not having seen its you. Your whole personality is like you love breaking saw. Good it's all good you your life will be better after having watched breaking that. That's not even a recommendation for every person out there. That's specifically for travis. Okay so after. Friday night lights. I will then insert breaking bad okay. That's smart but i don't know when i'll get to it so usually bend on the weekends and we've got something coming up okay. I bet if you tried one breaking bad you would. But i heard is breaking by the one where you need to watch like five or six episodes like. You can't give up early. I wouldn't have given up early. I don't think when they process a new show or a show that you should watch with okay but you have to get through the first few episodes or you have to give it to you before you get no not now going into thinking the first few episodes suck. Don't don't listen to say. Should i date this guy. Well get attached and then you won't break up with them but are they the guy to date or is it just going to be an unhealthy relationship. Really really rare. Six months are gonna suck but seventy million break his. I think breaking bad was right away interesting. I don't i don't understand mad. Men was slower but breaking. I believe breaking bad was right away interest. People say that about breaking bad where they say like the first couple of episodes or super. Slow don't go into it thinking that i loved right away. He the thing happen. So i don't think from what i remember. I trust stop watching it. Don't hold it against me if you don't like it take back your time. I won't be offended. i don't watch it. We might not be friends. Seems like you're gonna love to go once you're going to nonstop say i'm the one who knocks just feel like as soon as you get what christina you can't katie just said if you don't like stop and like we had been good and then you throw in that we can't be friends and now i have all personally christine on. I are two different people in this is a good time to remember that he or she draws a different line. Draw different line. We don't always draw the same line most times. We do draw parallels you know. Most of them are parallel. Sometimes but that's just called wisdom exactly christina agrees with me. Because i'm right. You know not because she doesn't agree with. Ucs girth driver. You're never right. what else. Oh speaking of your number right. What's the say i. I correct myself on previously on sports. I got megan pinot and super confused. Then also thought they were married. They aren't married so few corrections that we had to make on mondays. Couple huge correct that in most in most human lives a would be the only big events you have retirement and marriage and you assign them so and you were wrong so just a minor redaction but but i own the mistakes. Yeah was wrong. We're trying to make you go. But megan piano has been asked about our future shows. Actually on spain fitz on. Espn radio and she's such as not yet. Okay so that need to take some time to think about it. She said did she go on to say. And i really wish. Travis rock hold would shut his mouth and nuts in. Keep my name out his mouth. I really wish would on there like i'm thinking about it. I'm actually not retired Cato text me thinking that. I was because her producer said i was and actually i'm not. I'm not yeah that'd been great one. You would've loved if she had said like the lame stream media keeps reporting that. I've retired in. What she meant was you. I would have to pop out to you. You made my day not retired meghan piano for now. Yeah the conversation is always anguished in your mind or people. Don't think about it. But i've been thinking about it. She does i i can. I have you not rooting for that. Please okay but if she does you had it first. Everybody likes that if that were how it works. Then you could just tweet right now. That betty white unfortunately passed away. You can't be the first that had it. You have to wait till it happens when it comes to like retiring death at at some point everyone is going to retire at some point. Everyone's going to die. You can't just throw it out not make any sweeping accusations. I don't intend to die. So but for katie and other fans. I hope that she does it and i hope that i've remained wrong. Okay yeah thanks travis. Katie and other fans noticed how he's separated us from anyone who doesn't meghan regina fan. I discovery everyone but me. Yeah okay we've arrived at the worst possible topic to discuss and again like i said. How did this podcast famously. Not objectify athletes christina. I'll let you know when to watch. I don't watch it Travis let me ask. You is the link that you put in here. The one that i said i had the one that was like. Oh that's well that's something or is it the first one. It's the the first one. Oh i guess major league baseball has been using talk the way people use to talk. But it's just i guess alarming because it's major league baseball and it's they're kind of using memes and talk. I don't know i guess. Memes is like trends yes to sexualize their athletes can watch this first one okay. But it's the second one that got me to the first one. I got me So what it. Tell us what you saw lethal why i need. You need you to talk. Now what is bad why it is. It's just a bunch of players with the with the the voice in the background in. It's it's just so bad just a bunch of players the heart is and they're just. They're saying that they're all hot. They're all hot cup. Like you have a cupcake cupcake. Cut case yeah. So it's it's it's it's shohei ohtani for the first like you have a cupcake me describing tectonics welcome to katie. Describe as a picture of rare junior. When i like you of a cupcake and then the last part that it says is back my but like jerome. I'm unemployed okay. Then okay now christina let me send you the other one. Okay not not worse. I wouldn't say worse. I would say that that first one. I was it that one is worse. I guess and double down sure. This was like oh But it also was. I don't know. I don't want to say this. But this one is objectively sexier. I'm not trying to say it. I'm the production of this. One is sexier this when you could say. I don't know works better. I'm trying to copy the tweet christina. I'm just very flustered. Gimme one second all the time. You need jimmy senate tour. I'm putting it in the app right now right in the dock. No way see your face though. Travis you saw it no no i mean i know. Can you describe it. Please just so is this so it's not a it's the music where it's like Put your head on my shoulder. Cozy like it the beat drops and he's now first of all is this fernando. He's walking slowly towards the camera. Just throwing the ball up and down and it's a very nice at first and then all guy drank cute. And then he the beat drops in he gets real gets a red room and you just see his like outline de the trend for those who don't know the trend and so now he's sexy dancing in the red light Here's the thing about tick doctrines. Sometimes they weren't and so sometimes that one let me say this. Can i say this it resonated. Can i say that that one resonated with me is that a safe am. I allowed to have my own without do you can. I say that. I am the target audience of that post. We should add so he had been out with an injury and he returned. And so this really really leaned into fernando's back and we are going to put out some tape. Talks to promote him being that bat was it a bad strategy. How they could say that. I just wanna know who who in the like. I have imagined that the people that run the tape accounts. Nobody talks to them. Whatever and they are like on an island during like emma. My interaction with jesus. These classes are falling off my face. My interaction with people who have to do social media for a big entity is that usually. I mean very hard working. But they're not in. This isn't true of every organization. But they're not always able to just walk up to an athlete or person and be like. Hey bud i need this thing now. A lotta times the relationship is like can we get this real quick for social. And what i think i like. What major league. Baseball's doing and i'm not even entirely sure that i like it other than liking it as a consumer kind of in this way. But i'm trying to dance around It seems like the players are in on it. And i hope i mean i hope so kind of one but the first the first one with the cupcakes and the drums. Well that was just very legal. Players have no idea about that. Like they're just like slow mo like it's an ice oh of just them so it's like a video video that they have they have fernando danced for He didn't day how well let me say. Let's not talk any more about what it doesn't moves around. Just go on. But we don't know if you made that video four with that song intended yet you think. So why else would they say. Hey can you flip your hair back and run your hands through it like you just got like you're in wild things. Yeah i mean clearly Well i don't know. Maybe it's the cynic in me that's like man. They've been sexualizing. Female athletes since jump. So i don't. It's tough out behind upset. As long as they're look consent is important as long as this is something that you're player also wants to do. Then i say go an weird yet. That i was a little weirder. Because like you said it's stock footage and then they're basically putting emojis on it and i think it's a lot funnier if the real story is that major league baseball had no idea. This had any that that they were all just like. What do you mean. it's a tick talk like that's doing did you. Listen to what the sound set. Rob manfred like tic talk. What is that yeah. I don't think to. Yes or no does rob manfred. We're talking. i'm going to say business wise. Yes my halted a tic tac this weekend. So that's i mean she wasn't wrong i mean she was. She's by asking you for tic tac. She said she very clearly said. Oh what what telling needed hack. And i said oh it. It's talk but you're so cute. So i you know if they don't know what do you think is on. What do you think is on. Rob manfred for you. Page actually. I don't wanna know the cupcakes drums. All right. don't sexualize athletes list. I want to be a. But if i say yes unless they want to be fernandez he wanted to be sexual in this clip. So i can know if i like this clip or not but for the record. We did not sexualize them. No no no no no no no no and any sexualization. You think you might have heard. That's you projecting i am. I am not still watching this clip at all. So that's you that's doing that. Maybe take a cold hard. Look at yourself in the mirror. Okay be the change you want to see in the world. Maybe a cold shower. Maybe a cold shower. Maybe maybe take the rest of the day off a lot of things you could take. But play voicemail travis unless i'm connecticut and the announcement of carbon retiring that my question is if you can see one athlete come out of retirement and then do a new different sport. What athlete would you wanna see. Which sport would you wanna see them do. And why it by Well the easy answer will. One of the casino is soccer. Carli lloyd football. We've already seen that. She can kicked field goals. Is that your answer. Travis was something tells me you might be pandering. I've got more okay Tim tibo handball. I mean he needs to stop trying. Though is what we've been getting hat a question about come. You need a player to come out of retirement and you're going to say tim tebow when he quote unquote retired. I don't even know if that's official like a day ago. Pick somebody that you miss all right my turn. I'm gonna go big papi david ortiz. I want him to play. I play something fine. Like cornhole or something like nothing. That's 'cause i know physically. He can't he can't run. You can't do anything we can't. It's why he retired. Tiptoed a whole sexualization of rodman to be a boxer who i would like dennis rodman to be a boxer interesting. You know what. I hate about questions like this i. It's exactly why. And every. It's exactly why i'm just not a test taker. And a like insert trivia. I just blank. It's like when you ask the question. You could ask me this in any other setting. And i might be able to come up with fifty people but then right now because it's important. I can't think of anybody what you'd have to do. Relax your mind and think it. But for me i run through all of the sports that exist and all of the retired players. I'm trying to do too on at once. And i can't find him both at the same time you need to trust yourself. You know the answer. Because i used to be that way where it was like. Oh no no. They need me to answer. You just have to be like answer. But this is because it's two categories. Calvin johnson okay. It'd be interesting. sure sure how. 'bout how 'bout can pay. But right now is i just want to build robinson. No box horse racing the that so go get five. Could be. Watch that yeah. That's a cheating answers. Tony romo in golf okay. I feel like he. That is just like it's gonna here isn't he. Basically already there Pga tour though peyton manning competitive grilling that would be survey fun to watch grill. I don't think anyone would be that good of on the grill. I don't think he's that good seeing like a master bartlett guy like a dan. Yeah but see. I see him as the basic like what are we gonna have in all yeahs burgers and dogs. Yeah probably everybody manning. i don't see the smoker I didn't see you lie. Manning being a really good fisher a good. I don't need any more of him. he can stay retired. I'm good with eli manning. Disrespect solid begs though Trying to think there's got to be a good one out there Dwayne wade dwayne wade poker in the long jump. Oh maybe vince carter. I'm just thinking of people that can sell vince. Carter for the high jump long dumb idea for a sketch that never turned into anything. So i'll just blow it here. But if we ever got vince carter. I wanted to do like an interstitial where it's just him at a restaurant ordering chicken fingers and then when he orders dipping sauces. The like waiters can't control them so they're like again dunkin every time he goes to a restaurant there like a dunking. It dunk the amazing. It's stupid so like for my favorite players growing up so maybe it's a blast to watch of course anyway. That answers your question. Emma them down. I mean i feel like we let everybody down ben. We really actually now. Ben i feel like i was to meaning ben's going to be i feel like we been perfectly we gave them. We presented all information domain. The top of the dock. Because i forgot what the first question was out about gender one. Yeah yeah yeah to date bar. We gave him great advice. Okay well that's it for this week's edition of sports. Every time we do two now. I at the end of the second one. I'm like oh. That's the end of the stuff i like doing this week in. I gotta wait till monday to do this again. To simply safe and gatorade don't miss abbey's places. It's a new. Espn plus series soccer. Extra is retired again. Abbey's places only her name started with a p. Like the guy who.

I wasn't good so go. Listen to the other one. I feel like performance review. So i was gonna ask you. How did i do today. Hey good i you know. I after monday's podcast when ransom extra laps and watch some film reflection. I was tuesday. I was really nervous. Like i turn my phone airplane mode for whilst she's going gonna call. It just won't ring. I didn't want you to call and cut me. And so as a little nervous there for a while. But i didn't call but it wasn't because i wasn't supposed to cut you but now that we're here you made it. You made the cut for now but then we have another instead. Slow called in a favor. I'm okay with that. Oh no now you understand giving up his place. Would've sacrifice myself attempted though i bet you would have an honestly. You're not alone. Unfortunately that's what scares me or you could leave view wherever you're listening to this podcast. Which travis reads he loves them so much like this one from mr unlimited junior guide. Remember one russell. Wilson was doing that is. He's still doing it. It is the worst bit unlimited. Oh god i want to punch myself in the face just saying this is one of the best pods about sports. Ranked somewhere between one and twenty. Allegedly i see a lot of people in sports media. Tweeting out where they are on the sports podcast charts. And i'm like god. Imagine checking because i don't wanna not. I think this person. I've read it as whenever we're talking. Numbers were always like a plus or minus. Show moving onto a dental. If you got the joe. I got the you didn't know if i got the joke. She created the show. I got it. Oh no i think travis might actually created that one by accident. Either not agreeing with christina. While floyd i just find it funny i was standing up for you. The cultural dynamics podcast are all off. I gotta get out of here. I gotta get back in bed. Lastly don't forget that you can always leave us a voicemail that will fight about at eight six. Oh five oh six. Five seven one. Say goodbye christina by figure by travis love you and boy do i need it.

Frenchier Toast

"What no god. No i object. No no no you hear me. Whoever's listening no don't granton this sparkly bracelet that you used to wear a lot of in in honestly high school and then i think college. I went through a real bracelet making phase with my college. Bff maria lido. Shout out so shut up. Hello those Welcome to sports. It's the podcast. It ends of the question mark but it starts to the question on katie nolan. He's travis going on. I paused after katie nolan. Like katie was going to say. Hi and i was like waiting. Hi this is. Today's question brought to you by dr pepper college. Football's back and so are the fans returned to glory with fans ville by dr pepper. The one fans deserve. Hi katie christina. Travis this is dennis from dc and t- from new hampshire to leave a voice now in one take we both just graduated law school together and i'm moving away to be a lawyer for the navy. We became really good friends just by studying and drinking together. And we're really gonna miss one another. We're little worried about this distance. And i wonder if there was a friend that you guys haven't seen in a while and what you miss most about them. Oh thanks for listening and we love you and on how can you god. I love you and i mean it. There were two names. And i worked so hard to remember one and i never get it right and so i i get names already but i think one was steve. I take and this is dennis from. Dc from new hampshire de steve denison steve. It's two dads they're friends. This is the best i love. So much Oh was not the cutest i do. Also on say it wasn't the cutest member that right. it was scripted. Had to be because they nailed it on the first day. You're the lawyer scripted yet. Denison steve don't show up on their both receiver. The office me denison. Steve are the peak of preparedness. And look i'm not knocked opposite of this podcast. Yes wait a minute. The best is when you agree to and then take offense with the assessment. Like yeah totally wait wants how dare you i can say it. You can't Denison steve who love each other very much and are going to miss each other man. I miss a lot of things about a lot of my friends. Yeah i think. I was actually just thinking about this the other day Probably because i saw tech talk on it but somebody was mentioning. How you aren't prepared for that feeling of once you graduate college when you're with your friends. Twenty four seven. You're in a place where you can see your friends the people you wanna see at any time of any day because you don't have a normal person job yet you don't have other responsibilities and you all live in the same building. Exactly you live at five steps frumpy cherry close so you know when you move away from that and now you have jobs in lives and everybody's busy the older you get. I'm realizing the harder it is to coordinate meeting with your friends one time a year i. How sad is that just the harder it is the older you get. Is there a smarter richer. Social scientist i guess would be the job. That's working on concept of like why can't we all just live essentially on college campuses with our friends and our family right. That would be a little self. Sustaining echoes i. Guess that's how it used to be. You'd be friends with your neighbors now. It's like no. I know enough people. I don't need to know a lot. More people People neighbors. What am i gonna do. Knock on their door weird. I've pitched these two ideas to my group of friends that i went to college with is we all moved back to columbus and his buy houses in the same neighborhood or we all just by john enormous mansion that has enough kitchens regan separate but then you just all there. Yeah i mean like there's a point in your life where you're like okay. I think i'm done with roommates except for you know if you're going to get married to somebody and have kids those essentially but if it you there is still this like very specific joy like dan and his roommate who were roommates for so long that they were essentially in a domestic partnership when they moved out recently and dan found out that mike his roommate is was gonna live like a block and a half from where he was moving to he. It was like this and he'll be right around the corner. Which was such a great feeling if you happen to have somebody in your building. That is your friend. I imagined that is the coolest because you just like can go knock on their door and be like what's up on a hanger. I need to hang. That's the best thing about like. Your close friends is union. Sometimes you don't have to knock you. Just open up the door and walk in. Yeah that's why people watch the show friends. Now they're like this. Show sucks so unrealistic. It's a yeah. It was closer to realistic a couple years ago. That across the hall from you would be your gear your dearest friend. The apartment never made sense in terms of money it. It never made sense that those people who know stupid jobs can somehow pay for that rent for that apartment with that window. Situation they have. But i digress. What do i miss the most about my friends or the television show friends. Take your by mistletoe. You what. I miss about my sister in law. Who was my friend before my brother married her. But it wasn't my friend. I look sound too mad about something. But i would. She counts as a friend is what i'm saying. She's not just family is sitting on a couch next to each other watching a she watches. Tv exactly the same way. I do and i've never met anybody that watches it the way i do. Which is you're playing a game on your phone and half paying attention to the show. You're basically listening to the show as a podcast and looking up. And i only do that with certain. Tv shows that. I know i can do that too. Which by the way. I'm gonna tell you in friendly banter. I mentioned entire new show. And i've so many opinions on it loan but i missed sitting next to julie not having to talk but when one of us would talk the other one would stop both things they were doing watching a show and playing a dumb game and and listen and then we'd laugh and then we go back to our phones is. She's just the greatest data. And i miss her and ms so much. Oh yeah i think it. I what i've noticed the last couple of years. Is i try really hard to you. Especially because i've moved back home to connecticut. I didn't go to college here so none of my college friends. Consider my closest friends. None of them are even within an easy plane. Right of they all live across the country. So i've made it a really big point to reach out to them. Text them as often as i can just to say like. Hey checking in like seeing how you're doing because i know that life gets busy but it's specifically two years ago. I realized that i had lost touch with one of my college remains. Angelica who. I love very much. What any anjelica. 's oh. She's the best. We were roommates in college senior year. And we've been friends since freshman year and we super closed. once we graduated she moved to atlanta. I moved to l. a. Life got in the way we hadn't really kept in touch. But i texted are a couple months ago and was like hey i feel like we haven't talked about anything in a very long time. Let's reconnect and now it's like the floodgates have opened a french can old. And it's like those. Are the people that i love the most where it's like no time pick up where you left off exactly. And she is one of those people exact same way where it's like. We could be sitting in a room not talking. Nothing's weird She's one of those people who like when she sees a funny medium or like a funny video. We'll just text it out of the blue. And say i know you find this funny nine at nine times out of ten. I find it funny during that time. It's time the ten th time But yet i just. It's those kind of people that you gotta tennyson. Steve if i could give you one piece of advice it would be to try to now or or soon. Set some sort of annual date that every blank we blank so for my dad i grew up knowing a lot of his childhood friends. Because they used to hang out in some of their basements and they were called the cellar dwellers and then they started this thing where they just do the cellar dwellers every year. They do a golf tournament and so i would find that and hang out so i like no my dad's friends that way. So it's like as your lives split or there's distance between you if you keep that annual thing going some sort of a tradition. It's harder to go. Oh my god has it. Been six years since. I've seen steve That way you guys always have that thing that you gotta do that. You'll fit into your schedule. I think they should make it. September eighth and honor of voicemail. Yeah also every eight guys should listen to this podcast. Well that wouldn't make sense. 'cause i'd like them to listen to it more than once a year. Did i just cost us to listeners. Know on. September eighth oldest. Go back and listen to this phone on top of like you know what if we you're gonna have to do it twice so you're not exempt from the having to listen to it twice every time you listen to a podcast. I you do have to listen to it again when they're together one of them we'll just turn the volume down. Yup also that all so then we can hear it. How every year on september eighth you guys meet up and you buy an iphone and you create a new account and you subscribe to this podcast. I think that's genius view showing no that did it plus one every year. Yeah leave us a review and put travis's name somewhere in it. it doesn't have to be a complement. And that way he will see it. If you can make it look like a compliment. Five stars in my name. And then i'll grab it. Yeah and you can bash me. Save the salon in this podcast. But i think i've forgotten to bring it up. Recently you only have to click that last star. If you wanna give us a one star review click the one star all the way to the right and it'll give us the one star review. So just ooh was one starve. You clicked the the furthest star. It's gonna look like they all light up but it's it's it's it just clicked that one stars ignore that. Yes hebrew you. Actually it goes right to left so is on the right so that's just a reminder If thank you for your question we love you guys and we mean it. i hope I dunno maybe be pen pals. No you'll just text each other impel sandra. It'll just worried just worried. I was stay together. So i won't sleep tonight. Thanks to denison steve. But if you have a question that you want to see what depression thinks about it You could leave voicemails phone. Number's eight six. Oh i'm we'll sit eight. Oh six and that would have been wrong. You know it say it with me eight six. Oh five oh six. Five five seven one x glasses sometimes. They're a little blurry. Myrtle likes to lick them. Hello it's going on. Hello i just wanna say before we get into the things that you guys in the docks it let me paint. The picture started at the beginning. The only people. I really hang out with socially during any given week. Are you to In dan it's myrtle who. I think i've already said on this podcast. I talked to too much like she's a human. I do that at the dog park now. And i get looks that i'm like oh i'm too close to my dog. I need to put a little bit of spain now. Now that's that's on that that's not people aren't close on our. We had been walking to the dog park. She was like. I don't have to and i was like if you poop. I'll take you to the park. She was like. I don't have to poops. Kept giving me oliver little signals. You'd have to poop we get to the dog park. She put it right away. Ran into the middle of the field and pooped. And i walked over and i was like i knew i didn't believe you when you said you didn't have to poop a guy look over at me and was like what i was like okay. She told me on the way year. Yeah it was. I was having a. You're catching abc and Yeah but the point of this story was that i don't really interact with any people except you guys and so friendly banter has usually just been like catching up with friends and figuring out and now we've gotten to a point since you are my only friends. I think that we talk about stuff before we start doing. The podcast and i will never be more upset than i am. Now the fact that travis's dating life has moved to an off podcast friendly banter. We are getting updates. But travis as he is wont to do an absolutely well within his rights is like can i. We not just talk about my life. Personal life on a podcast. I'm like what do you mean. what's what's that boundary. I don't have that. So but i get it. 'cause you know my name's on it so we we got some updates but the reason you guys haven't isn't because it's not popping off it's just because it's a personal. It just feels weird to say. Because i don't think i've ever said that being said i heard travis that you found an easy way to make french toast. I mean jesus. Christ i'll be. Let's hear it during a time. Dealing with my lip know searching for things to eat that were you know different but easy and pepperidge farm highly enjoyed my time dealing with your lip because people still call it that my mom lisa system given me lip but now i feel like it sounded wrong because nobody says that anymore. Travis sorry go ahead pepperidge farm. Has these different breads at lake. There's a cinnamon raisin there's All different kinds of you know. Flavors i guess you want Lift what flavor But so then the other day. And i got one and it was french toast. Oh and so. I was just eating it dry and i'm like I'm just wet. It did use. Run it under the nano okay. Then i was like you know. Today i was like yesterday. I was like are i can start in you know food. I'm still being cautious. But i went and got the took the french toast. And it's like think that cut What cracked open a couple eggs. Put the french toast bread and their third on the skillet and not have to worry about like adding all the other little ingredients that you would for french. Any other little ingredients seattle cinnamon and sugar and maybe some vanilla. But it's mostly just egging breads. The breads already season for me. There is no seat. what are you saying. Here's dan. I understand what you're saying but you've also just described the entire process of making a normal. Yes you just made an extra french toast. You've just made an extra french. French does bread though that makes zero sense to me are encountered something like this. Was the french toast bagel at panera. And i was like what. And that. I get because it mixes. The flavors of french toast as in like syrup included into a bagel is zero that makes sense european flavor included in french toast bread or is it just bread. That has more egg in it. No the bread like it tastes like french toast okay. I don't need that and look. I don't mean to be a jerk. It's just sometimes there are technological advancements that we make as a society that unlike we've gone too far. We don't need that french toast. Bread is one of them an act that i can use to turn my lights on an office another The switch works. Just fine the app. What if my phones dead. And i need the lights to be off the mega broken and i can't get out of bed. Jor well then you you person with a specific disability should be granted some sort of assistance to achieve that. But i don't need my apps to be doing the you don't need just your own to turn your lights off you can have like licensing alexa. Turn lights off one of the most frustrating things about existing in the world right now is how many different places like literal places and also internet places. You have to write to jot something down. I don't have just one note pad where my thoughts are. I've got my notes app. I've gotten multiple notebooks in my house. I've got google drive. I've got My email sometimes just email myself stuff. I think the motion rush rating thing with martin examiner technology. I hear that. I'll raise you to all of the different streaming services. Many one thing. What tv show jay said somebody's. I want them altogether and resell the idea of cable yet. Like it just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. That i want to pay one person and have access to all the things i needed. I don't wanna pay each seven dollars especially when they change like oh. We just negotiated now. We got rights to this. And it's like well now. I have to go get that stupid streaming service. What also doesn't make sense to me is when multiple streaming services have the same tv show but some of them don't have all the seasons and now it's a bit. i'm so can one place for one show yum on. I just here. I thought you guys would be excited about my french toast. No we actually were so excited about it that we talk about something else that bothers so disappointing barely. Wearied totally veered away from your french toast. Then this is now my friendly rants about this wanted to get it out there. Try this travis. A silver lining to me face planting into my the way travis that it's a sliver lining seriously ever lining. I i like a silver lining ten me face planting like what what i don't. I always bite my fingernails. 'cause i 'cause it like what do you want fingernails home. Do you think of value. I could open up the salt container to put it in my cup psychiatrist mouth. Al two point that you said i have fingernails. I started thinking. Now how do your fingernails relate to you bashing your face seattle dot there. And the first thing i thought was christina. Can you get your grandmother on the phone so we can get to pick out a color manicure with grammy. Oh oh my god. She'd love that to christina saying she wouldn't christina's phases every does grammy driver a pick her up. Oh she'd love tragedies cheap prefers not to drink all the time and then he's not gonna do it. I ditch grammy. All right so grooming will all reveal if you grammy finishing ditch. The podcast a hand with grammy. Wow okay to make that sort of a statement. I mean we. We said i mean you. Don't i mean christina. You've you've literally ditch this podcast to hang out with grammy. She's my grandma is it's starting to hurt me so if we could just go back to what we were talking about. Which is travis fingernails talk show host. No i don't wanna talk about your stupid. Bread is already french. toast becoming more french. Toast anything that feels for. That bread wouldn't identity crisis it's going to be like. I thought i already was french. Toast why am i being dipped in egg. Whoa is that a skillet. So good for you travis. Hope that keeps you up at night. Maybe it enjoys the heat. Maybe it enjoys the heat. My god well okay so while you were making your more french toast than french. Toast toast I watched i watched on netflix. Last night. I don't know if either of you have heard of this. I live in the state of connecticut and had never heard of this so on netflix. There's a sports documentary called untold crime penalties And it's about The danbury trashes. Yeah the the nhl the minor league nhl team That came to danbury connecticut and was owned by a seventeen year old I had no idea this was a thing it was in the early two thousands so i think they said it was two thousand and four five so i had to have been supper cylinders miss. It was before keep going so anyway. I was a child and i do not remember this happening whatsoever But i texted my dad. And i said hey do you remember danbury connecticut. Having a minor league hockey team owned by a high schooler a literal teenager and he said oh. Yeah i was you know. It was literally like drama every single night mad was like it was comical because it went on for way too long i encourage. You ought to watch it. Because it's kind of mind-blowing that we all just as a society sat back and allowed a seventeen year old to run a hockey team directly into the ground. So go check it out. It's well worth the watch Especially if you enjoy. I love hockey for the fights. This is all of that plus drama plus more so it was actually after. I was wrong to correct myself from earlier. I it was after. The islanders Those in ninety six remember when the islanders had that guy by the team and he didn't have enough money to buy the team. It was like so. what's funny. Is they reference that in this doc. How they referenced. Tau like that happened. And then there's a seventeen year old is like well. I have the money here you go. It's like crazy but you're also a kid so anyway it's worth the watch. Go watch it. Yeah they didn't malice at the palace of that. Doc to doc series right. But they're all episodes. I stopped watching the mouse to palestinian. Very quickly usually bias. No because i wanted to about the mouths of palestine. I don't care about in this instance dramatic neil like where he came from. I just want the documentary on the fight. Because that's what. I thought it was going to be on and starts out everything you know. Docs like present the context. They have to lay the foundation. This is why this thing mattered so much. If you pay attention to all that boring stuff. Travis it pays off later when they get to the in. Then you're like. Oh wait till you which the perfect segue for me to tell you what. I watched on netflix. This weekend and the weekend. It was yesterday tuesday. Wednesday cares days urges and foreign concepts at this point. They are all the exact same and honestly right now. The way life is going saturday's my least favorite day the week. That's how upside down. Things are over every day can be a weekend if you have the right attitude. I actually don't mind a tuesday. Tuesday's might be my favorite now. Suddenly quirky weeks removed for me. Saying that tuesday's suck doesn't matter nothing. Matters is the point is i watched click bait. Have you seen like the ad feel. Like i'm saying heard about it but yeah i've definitely seen the ads. It adrian grenier vehicle about a guy from entourage about A guy here's the basic concept a guy who's a father and a husband and a brother. Those are his main roles is kidnapped and video is posted of him online holding up signs where he says. I'm abused abuser. Of women at five million views i die and so i thought by the preview that the interesting thing that would be examined in this show was going to be how humans use the internet and whether or not society or the media would feel responsibility to cover this type of story a certain way so as to not encourage people to go and watch the video. I couldn't have been more wrong. It was basically a like whodunit. Murder mystery. show it's believe nine episodes so for the first three four. Maybe even all the way to five. It was a show that i had on in the background. And i was like snickering at and being like well. That's two convenient. There were a couple moments where it used like law and order logic which for those who are unfamiliar. It's when a detective needs to narrow down suspects in walks into a bar and asks a bartender if you remember one person that was there. Two fridays ago in the bartender goes i sure. Do remember that guy and provide some very pivotal detail. He ordered a white russia. Yes he remembers the exact thing that matters that you needed to know with no digging into that at first and so i kind of dismissed it as like. Oh god it's another manifest. And i'm not gonna stop until i know the answer to the ultimate question that the show is asking so i'm gonna watch the whole thing but i'm not going to pay attention to it and then by episode five. Maybe six might have even been as late as seven. I was like somewhere in the middle. I went home and then all the stuff that was silly before. Because it's really slow. The first few episodes all that stuff. I started to figure out why it was there. And i was like oh wait. I know who did it and i did. The math and i was so proud of myself. And then i won't say anything else but It turned around and now. Here's my dilemma. I can't tell if that's related to the fact that in between those episodes i went to the gym and starting to worry me because now i feel like stupid and now it's still stupid but i'm stupid and so it seems smart or did it actually get really pretty good in the middle and i think i think it did get good in the middle but there are still parts of it that are like oh this is stupid but it's actually. I think i would recommend it. I don't know. I don't. I've been debating watching it for a while because i keep seeing you Commercials on on the scale of What's a show that you love. Hong catch fire. Okay on a scale. Manifest and halton ocana skill of manifests to halt and catch fire. It is a manifest dislike the ground floor. Everything goes up from there. it is a. I'm trying to think of another comp because obviously on that scale it's not a number it's another show but i just show that golombek. It's a little bit above below dame tv channels. It's above that because my opinion on the challenge is low this season i do not. I'm not enjoying it like i used to. But now i have a good understanding of where you this is actually helping me out. I don't know if it's helping a mystery. And i always say in the annoying way that i say that like i like to be rewarded for the things i noticed in the show. This show does a little bit. There's a little bit of an infuriating something but it's it is interesting. I don't know that. I ultimately i'm not even saying like oh i loved the ending. 'cause i've got issues but it. It was interesting enough. If you're looking for something to watch and you don't wanna go full manifest. You can go. Click how about that. Don't go full mantis. People like never go full man if people are tweeting about it that they've got involved with it and i'm like i know you know what's funny though it's the thing that would i when i see someone say this show is insane. Why does anybody watch it. I go wow watch for punishment. Apparently but then meanwhile the entire internet is yelling at me to watch ted lasso. And i'm like. I just don't think i'm gonna so i was not against ted lasso but i definitely wasn't even remotely on the same level of enjoying it the way my boyfriend and the rest of society seems to do I just thought it was a little too cheesy corny. The first season christians and took a hit. I was gonna say. I forgot what was me. Basically share her honestly could have been up. That i was talking to you about this. Who said You know if you allow yourself to just enjoy the corny and enjoy the show for what it is and not compare it to. oh well. this isn't what i thought it blah blah blah. And if you don't if you just immerse yourself in you'll enjoy forever. So i did that for the second season and i actually really really like it. I don't know if that's going to change your opinion of wanting to maybe watch it. But i was definitely not interested season. One season two full blown into it. I really enjoy it. And i actually look forward to the scared of. I think what. I'm most scared. Because i've been analyzing myself to try to find the answer to this. Like why is it. That i just keep watching everything else and i won't watch ted lasso. It's because i know it's probably a symptom of my depression. That when i watch things now. Tv commercials People in public celebrities. Talking i a grown. I'm just like you at people are falling for this. I think that's probably my depression. That thinks everything sucks but it is. I think i'm afraid that ted last so is so universally loved that. If i watch it and i don't like it that i'm like okay the world and i just do not see eye to eye. It's just gonna like the fear liking it. everybody else. Does he put meeting your hero love or it's like finding out that like oh you are. Your opinion is unpopular. And it's like okay. And how. I felt about game of thrones though when everybody has loved that show and i do not like it whatsoever anytime i say that to somebody who obviously really likes to show they all give that same like really like what you have and that you actually best thing about a abaid finale. Like a bad ending is that you'll probably end now. If you see it people will be like oh man. I wish i didn't get as into it as i did. It's like yeah pay off. I actually watch. I think like four of the lonzo just stopped something mike. It's not that i hated. It was just like alka back. I'll watch didn't captivate you. Also in a very dark phase. Like i told you i'm listening to park guests. Where people described the scariest moment in their life like. That's where i'm getting my content really intense so by gosh by. Golly asher do love soccer. It'd be like yeah. I don't think i could do this. I definitely think you need to be in a different mindset. You need to be wanting and welcoming. Because i get in those moods to where i'm like i can't like it's exactly why i had to either. Stop watching below deck in watch something else or why only watched below deck furling four days straight. Because it's comfort. I don't want to veer from what i know. I'm liking right now All right well. That's friendly banter right. I think we covered it now. That we're thirty minutes in the podcast. Oh by the way. Halfway through christina talking there i realized i haven't been recording this whole time so my recording at three. It's only that's all right. I'm recording individual track. Good i just I do this thing where i move the window down. So it's underneath the zoom window. And then when i click on it to click record have to remember that. I'm clicking to switch windows. And then i have to click record so i technically have to click it twice by always forgets. Lucky you i record everybody's individual tracks just in case. I'm just saying travis i'm sorry a- you don't need to say you're sorry that we're good. I'm sorry how many times are you gonna make say two more times. Sorry travis god you forget it. Say on the thinks today on the podcast. When we got travis mack. Jones has enlisted his girlfriend for help with the memorizing place. Wayne kiffin got a headline lane kiffin. Anti okay lane. Kevin waiting right next bill bell check not trusted not trusted. Yeah dumb but all right. Stay tuned stay tuned. He said folks mack jones who thank you so much. Thank you so much. I have been trying across multiple platforms on this the worldwide leader to get anybody to engage in that dumb bit with me match. Aunts What happened with him and his girlfriend so he went on a radio show in boston and talked about how it for him. It's easier to visualize the place if it's instead of just looking at playbook actually go out there and like run routes and different. You know more visual delight example. Yeah and he said that his girlfriend has been helping him a memorize. These plays and then he's been throwing the ball into the net. And i've got a few issues matt jones. Oh boy those ideas. I feel like he jumped from story to talk about the story. And then we can get to your feeling. We were argued. I think that's really allow are so. Here's good. I just wanted to say it. Sorry go ahead. But that's fine this This story to me. And i think tha probably most girlfriends is Is like saying. Water is wet. Like a Girlfriends are behind the scenes of your favorite athlete helping them crush it constantly. Keep them together. The only time y'all talk about us is when you think we ruined it when you think we are the reason that they Can't throw a spiral. How dare jessica on mexico. But i will say most of the times when you aren't thinking about us. We are in some ways contributing to that man. You love so much. So i this story a while. It's all well in good. I think we should not treat it as if it's like. Oh this one got his girlfriend to help like bitch shoot. Think helps the jokes. It's we help mac. Jones is the only who has ever looked at his girlfriend's and say i need some happened yet it And also let this be a note to men you can ask for help. We're very good at giving it. Actually i think it's has already use society does guys you got to figure it out. Don't ask for help but when you do Most times. I think you'll be surprised that you'll get like a i got i left to Very helpful creatures so travis. Now that now that that's out there. What are your issues with mack jones by the way her name is sophie. Scott sorry i hate. That's like a pet peeve of mine that were like mac jones's girlfriend mack. Jones girlfriend her. Name's sophie sophie. Is this awesome. Be running around and help you memories playbook boat macaroni and she worked on victory formation. And get down on a knee. Why oh bars travis. Alright how he said. If if you like it then you should put our rain on it. Okay here's another one. Yeah we do. Walk-throughs jones confirmed upon follow up questioning. I just kind of throw Do them with her. And throw into a net. Why can't she be the Throw her the ball while you get to the net abbas lousy. That's why it's really not the direction. I thought this was going but now i'm so happy you know what i'm realizing. That are radicalization of travis. It has a danger of veering into pandering territory. Where now he knows that he has to check his opinions when he gets here to be like. Oh if i say that. I think it's dumb to let your girlfriend help you. I'm gonna get yelled at on the internet. So instead i'll say a much better point but we gotta keep an eye on them and make sure he's not just saying things like he's not gonna throw her the ball because she doesn't want to hatch said he's worried that he's gonna get used to having a good receiver and then the games he throws the ball and it's not caught with the receivers. The patriots have trying to argue that. What what women think is that mac. Jones's girlfriend is better at football than a professional football player for the new england patriots. She worse joke. But it's also just like you couldn't possibly believe that to be true. The patriots have many professional football players. Okay name a couple. I don't have time. But they have them is what's important and one of them was all you could do it. Yeah so i started yesterday. That was like. I think it was from profootballtalk that was like. I don't think any of you could name to people on the houston more than two players on the houston. Texans as i was like. Why is andre. Johnson trending and then i was like oh people are trying the name. Houston texans. so that's i mean it's a good guess. I would've guessed what. I would have guessed. Who's their quarterback. Well we don't know do we. We know the starting quarterback travis quarterback early just said it. Yesterday is now. I definitely saw it. I definitely saw on the lower third. You want it was like recent. It was like three day. What what's the what's how clue a katy hint He has told us how he likes his name pronunciation Pronuncia pronuncia created flag. Odd throw a flag on the play pronunciation nc. Now i'm doing a thing. We're making it so that you can't edit it out. You can't edit it out and edited out. It's it's He's gonna find a way to at that out. No all live it yes. I'll it even if you promise in the future. Do john late. My gosh it's going gonna keep coming just kidding all even promise. I'll do it Christina did you have any thoughts about mac jones's girlfriend sophie. Scott good name is a really great name She should keep it. Don't go sophie jones. Who is that's not her. Google there and there's a an older woman that i was like. There's no way and i was right. There isn't a way it's a difference if than sophie scott. Okay moving on Okay lane kiffin. That was the teas that we got to your favorites for college football baby. I watched so many games. And i love conferences and rules and different overtime rules island especially here in more money that the people with besides the athletes may i love. I love pass interference. And i love. I love how rich people that aren't the players are love everything i love. I love regulations ahead so k. Ole miss in louisville played monday night on saturday lane kiffin tested positive for covert. He has vaccinated. They tested positive. So it wasn't gonna be able to coach on monday night however They won his contract stipulates for any power five non-conference victory. He gets a hundred thousand dollar bonus so even though he was not the coach there. The team won. And he's getting a hundred thousand dollar bonus this year for the victory that he did not coach because that makes total sense not only did he not coach in and let that sink in right. That's the story but nobody coached. He didn't name in me. Is the is the silliest part of this job not only did he earn a bonus for not going to work or doing. I mean. i'm sure. I know there's prep. There's lead up. There's game planning i understand. But he didn't co yeah he didn't do the right. Let's just assume that that's let's all understand each other. He didn't coach games. Got one hundred thousand dollars to not literally that day not choke to work and essentially proved that you can do it without him and so it's even more insane that somebody you could do it without. You'd give extra money too. But that's why. I love college football baby. Nothing like saturdays in the fall tailgating not letting athletes eat two slices of pizza. When they're only supposed to have one sex scandals can send is a blurry concept So is so. That's what happened right. Yeah cool a also. I see here that he pays he gets paid by the ole miss athletics foundation. Which is not is private organization. And i'm telling us man. I'll douse fisher. I'm confused as with most things in college football. Travis i'm coming to you from a place of i didn't i don't know much about the area and so every time i see something i'm like. Well why did you guys let them get away with that. And i no one can ever give me the backstory of like what. How did he how can they make. How do they do that. They pay all of his basic compensation as well as bonuses. So i don't know this is. This is speculating here. reckless speculation time. A lot of states have laws in place on like how much a state employees can make so then rather than skirt those so them what they do is then boosters command chevrolet not that's Yeah i don't know about this one but like that's why when you see like a coach fired a lot of times. The school doesn't actually pay the buyout boost. Your comes like put rooster money katie. It's everywhere. I get it and i get it but i also like. Didn't anybody notice that it was getting greedy and broken exactly. How a loophole. To pay your coach. But you said that you can't find one to pay your players. It's like what are we doing. Why are we letting them do. I get it. It's no one's nothing's gonna change. I don't want people listening to think. I don't understand how money works. I mean i don't. But i don't understand it's a lower and i understand that we allow people to use it as the excuse for why they do things a lot of the time I guess i'm just less willing to accept that as an explanation anymore at this juncture in my life where. I'm just like really you needed more. We needed to pay lincoln. Four point five million dollars. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me and maybe it's just put aside industry but if you don't pay then another aaa yet. But that's how it should put the kids. What about the kids. It just seems like everybody kind of agreed that they wouldn't ever get paid and everybody else could get paid as much as they want to their students. I katie. I know i see. I know that it's just that i I don't know. I guess. I just don't buy at least. The athletes can get some sort of money now now. Starting yesterday later released it not any. We don't get to already be like. Hey what big improv. Their name image and like this. It's better than nothing. Yes it is. It is better to ask store but it's better than guys set this system up in the first place. I was sleeping. I wasn't paying attention if i had been here. I wouldn't let this happen you. You're so blinded by your lifelong lsu phantom that you didn't get involved and they know the minutia condoleeza rice had it under control. I mean if you can't trust condie who can you trust more in this story. That upset me let me check. He's gonna get more bonuses so he'll get upset later in the year. Yeah that's right. They also do season tickets. They do bonuses. He gets bonuses based number of season tickets that mississippi sells that feels like look the only real relationship i could have to. This is when you remember when you were younger and you had to sell candy bars for your own mike now the worst but if you one if you sold the most you got a prize in so you know. My dad had a hustle about it. That i don't all version of that yet. I don't know if it's necessarily legal. But i am saying if i were That's what i'd lane. I would be like okay. I need to devote an hour a day to making phone calls to get people to buy season tickets. Wonder if he just buys himself. Oh and then. That's what dad would do. But so when i was like local businesses and leave them on and be taken take a take a candy bar and then we would or maybe they would sell them with an updo god he buys them selves sleep. At all. think it's a legal. I remember our deal in think. Middle school was Magazines which actually at the time was easy because all you to go to people that had already had magazine subscriptions and just ask them to renew it through you so then you get some tale but then because the people are already. They're buying stuff that they don't need or whatever like they're getting. The magazines like many book were acquired that we're now my niece. She's on some white club. Soccer team dealing. It's you know it's x. Amount of dollars and to pay for it. The league has it set up where the kid or parents or whoever can go work concessions at like A texas ranger baseball game or a concert where the rangers play whatever and so you go work for an hour and you just give the money to my brother will go at these concerts a work the concert selling beer and he gets to listen to the concert and his. It's it's a different ball game these days with kids and how they have delayed pay for things. They're not going around selling candy bars and pizzas. What the hell. That was right of passage. I guess we pave the way too. Yeah i'm guessing the com. I'm guessing that each of you had a kid in high school. That was going around so candy and told the skull found out and then like shut him down no like candy dealer. Look we had a kid that would go to sam's club by a bunch of candy. Brilliant brain sold out of lost silicon valley. Now i'm like. Oh i just opened his trench coat and have a nut. -rageous five. Do you remember the scholastic. Book fairs borough. Yes so in book for fifth grade. I had to have been young. It was like fourth or fifth grade. There was a kid in my grade. Who would like just by a bunch of stuff like with like twenty bucks. His mom gave him from the scholastic book. Fair would buy a bunch like One of those Bookmarks and all sorts of stuff that like kids want and he would seldom at recess and we would use like our lunch money and stuff like that too. I his and i remember. I remember that happening and like the recess aids being like what is this no. this can't do tiny capitalism. I can't have this. please don't do this. And those are great memory. Thanks for bringing up their welcome. People don't trust bill belichick travis. Tell me more so The athletic had their third annual agent survey where they reached out to twenty-three certified agents their asked all thirty thirty three of thirty three. Sorry oh they were asked. Twenty three questions and one of them was among the. Gm's and front office leaders whom do you trust the least eagles. Gm howie roseman. Had seven notes came. So that's i just want to point out. That's the most votes eagles. Gm howie roseman. Got the most votes and then patriots. Billy be here is the least trusted. The headline says bill bell check amongst trusted in recent survey shore. Buddy isn't the least trusted right. Article off howie roseman. Put a positive. Did you call him. Billy yeah i love i i want somebody at a press. Say billy beat. I want that. I want this to catch on. You're welcome well actually. If you're going to use that you have to credit me for it. Thank you very much to credit the podcast. If the drive into the podcast likened san diego christina on sports with katie. nolan's says. Yeah yep this is becoming a whole thing. And i don't think it needs to. I think i made a great point. Which is that. The headline is misleading. This is click bait which you can watch now on net flicks here. I'm gonna come to you. I'm gonna come to your defense though and that in what sense i think it sounds like the agents are just upset because bill for the longest time is a shrew gm and gets things done and wins. We're like road. I quote i quote from an anonymous agent. Which say it with your chest. Okay i quote. He's not deceitful. We just haven't had a good relationship. He fights hard for what he wants. And i do the same in the opposite direction. That is not a not trustworthy that is not. he said. he's not deceitful. he's not a liar. My also like pick apart the quote though he goes we just you know he's he doesn't stuck i just don't like him whatsoever in everything i do. Is he wants what i what he wants. I want what i want. And they are at odds. So i guess i would say i don't trust him. Here's another quote. They always have a plan in place and they know how they plan to use it from a communication standpoint. They're not an organization where you can have a conversation about what's happening with your clients. Is that about the nutrients that's not about these are all about. It's what it sounds like. His agents are upset because bill. Belichick got the better of the in negotiations. Yeah that's how it's not an antagonistic relationship. Your agent exists to say the things to your bosses that you can't say because if to maintain a good working relationship in order to do your jobs jesse i'm here to defend bill here. I know i'll go to the last one because the last one's funny too. It's not that he's done anything wrong but he's team. I always all the time. Yeah like he shops for due to take that approach he always had the franchise. Qb to get away with that. This reminds me of when and This is very Self centered but there. I made a video on always late once monologue was about wnba pay disparity and how the conversation about it is such a mess that people think that the women are asking to be given lebron james money right now instead of that. It's like they're what they're actually arguing force. I broke it down. And then this guy made like a forty minute youtube video. That's called like katie. Nolan lies on espn and oh god lays my video and then talks in the most boring. I mean duda forty minutes show they tell me i have to keep my monologues at eleven minutes tops. And i'm like this guy thinks people want but people do people wanted to listen to him. Talk for forty minutes and all. He does at the beginning of every sentence. He's like now while she's not technically wrong and then he talked. So you're saying. I'm right through another clip of me and he's like that stat is correct. But in you're like okay so you're making a counter point and that's like okay so then again. Tell me where i realized not agreeing with. Someone doesn't mean you don't trust them. It means that you don't agree with them about different. Me wrongs i'm not. I'm not a patriots fan. I am not ability but these quotes are exactly what you said. It's well we don't have a good relationship but that doesn't mean he's a bad purse said or gun thing wrong per se. It's like you're that they should be and these are all anonymous so i don't know why they're all they all sound scared with. They should say is that like yet. You don't trust the guy who knows the rules inside out in knows exactly how he can tiptoe the line in knows exactly he needs to you. Don't trust somebody in a negotiation. Who's a lot smarter than you. But none of them will say that mike at your point. It's anonymous air at al like sarah out of rain. That's what's funny is. It's all this and they're all like i just wanna let you know he hasn't done anything wrong but we don't know who it is. I don't want him to be burnt out. Yeah just say just put your name on it. Your gender beating on everything travis. Just paused the podcast. He could play me the audio of what we're about to talk about and if you haven't seen this video you need to go watch it now. Stop what you're doing. It's worth it. Travis what's the story so hard knocks which few thoughts on that. We'll get to after this plant. Wait trayvon digs dad. That in is a cornerback for the dallas cowboys in. He has a son aiden who is a huge debt preska fan and so they had they had it set up where they were at Missile ice cream. shop At the star where they practice. And they're you know he's got his dak prescott jersey on and he's talking about how he wants. Tax number and n walks favorite player lead is fo w he sounds like a little he sounds like rudolph hi in walks back and i think he was just like so flustered and dak ask him his name. He says he's aid. Goes in your patrick. Mahomes sake have on any said it. Not patrick mahomes dak prescott good to meet you the most adult for your offer so deck ends up signing jersey for an puts. Not patrick mahomes on this is all he you and this was hands down the best moment of our knox and second best. I don't know what is so to your point. I have to admit katie. At beginning of before it started. You said it was going to be awful. I thought it was gonna be good You're right. Oh my god i get your right today. It was collecting on debts. I just found my. I like to think Common sense and jerry jones and nfl films. Thank you guys so much. This is such an honor. You'll be right. It was like at the the final episode was like you know the cuts in at one day so much people in the room and in walks of coach like we hope to have you back on the practice squad like they just. They just caught him in a giant room. All of them together. Like not person is that was that was might have been the worst hard knocks ever literally. The highlight was jerry jones. Salting his donald sandwich his aid and calling back. Patrick mahomes kids. Voice is cartoon cute and that was a horrible. They went outside afterwards and was stern on the ball and like but he started running around doing like little like jews. Love tom. little kid parents do is negative. Co-boys aiden average. Okay okay okay. Yeah next to another one today. I don't know we don't of course not next week. We'll get next week. Okay what's the next. Oh kovin documentation for stadium and tree. So there's a few teams The seahawks on tuesday became the third team. Along with the raiders. And the saints. You're going to have to be proved that you're vaccinated to go in. And i make sense because there's a full blown mosh pit section right behind the enzo. Let's also they're wanting to put on a rage the saints. The saints are a doughnut. Can't open to what happens in vegas can't stay in vegas if you're not vaccinated what i'm saying. Yeah i feel so bad fateh words per usual and no constantly like this is me dancing trying to get him to come on. These are funny. These are funny. What's funny that might wear one another ninety nine. Get you deal on this. Snickers snickering midnight. Were just here. Just levin life and smiles to himself but then continues on point. But you're talking about something he'll just start texting. Fine travis. tell me about the story about kovic. Nineteen i feel bad for the people that are going to be taking the tickets and having to go through this mess and deal not for nothing. I'm the line that it's going to create. That's going to cause more of a situation than it would. If all the questions of the people are like. I didn't realize i had to bring the imagine. The people are going to have to put up with who have been tailgating and who are drunk and who are coming into an nfl stadium after a year when they couldn't do that in a card or got drunk and it fell into the bob dole. I swear both fake ones. Like how are they gonna to seattle specifically. They have a high tech option. If you wanna go that route where you can upload proof into an online portal. And then if you don't wanna do that. You don't have the capacity to do that or you don't know how to do that. You can bring your vaccination card and they will be hand checking them like. Tsa you'll go through and show them and they said that they have people monitoring for four degrees. But i feel like if you don't say that like that could one of those things like a sign in your pool that says the chlorine turns a different color when p pretty sure that doesn't exist but that people just write that so that you won't pee in their pool and you know what the right i never did. I mean but you. Are you a bartender thing about just the pain of dealing with like carting people. Oh bartenders didn't do that part travis. Bartenders carmelo time. I were the main bar that i did most of my working at was at a bar where they check your idea at the door. Twenty bucks for every single fake. Id confiscated really. Yeah so that would be smart. I would say nfl if you compensate the people who like a balance for every fake they catch. Yeah all the fake Vaccine guards it's going to be in the. Here's what's going to happen to the portals gonna crash. Oh what's what also so now. I have a question because what doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me is when when they do things like this where it's team by team state by state so now we've got certain stadiums that are enforcing the vaccine card in order to get in but others are not so you as a fan. What's what's the difference between you going to. Let's say you're traveling with the team. You love you go to a game for in a different state couple the week before then the next week you go with this team to the seahawks and now united states where some laws or at state level and some are at you know nationwide federal level This thing that's confusing to me is do the seahawks have one hundred percent vaccination rates because if you need to be vaccinated. Enter the stadium but they don't have to be vaccinated. Deploy argue that. They can't enter the stadium unless they're vaccinated unless there's some sort of an exemption. I'm not familiar with it. Seems like in vegas and new orleans and were we just talking about seattle The all the players should then therefore have to be back. Sorry come in. My name's wilson. Let me sorry sir. You don't have your car you can't come in. I mean doug baldwin please come on thrill technically is an thought source are the rules are rules or are they not. The rules is the question. If it's a role that we all have to follow. This is like during the summer when i saw people in the stands wearing no masks and coaches on the floor with masks mike i just don't understand what the rule is. What are we doing It just feels very inconsistent. But what are you gonna do. That's how i wrap up all my code bit stories now. Well well well what it is what can you do. It is what it is. What a day you know there were stories to get to. But you're saying that there aren't that's all i had that doesn't mean that there aren't more stories. That's just what i grabbed. No i mean. I felt like i thought i saw more Again we're not gonna talk about the wfl but there was a Interview with the new washington. Spirit president and meglena. Lenihan who i told you last week you should listen to and follow. Maybe it was two days ago. I don't know That you should probably read where he basically says that he doesn't know the women's game as well as some other people but that doesn't mean that he can't be president and just watching women's soccer internet react to that quote has been very funny. Mia quote unquote president. Have i been trained to be president in the way some others have gone to business school ben in other fields and then come to lead an organization like this. No but i come with fresh. Is i don't necessarily ended up there. I don't necessarily know the women's game as much as many people in this many people in the soccer world. Not like as much as some people it's like. I don't know the women's game as much as a lot of other more qualified people do. But that's okay too coming into this with fresh eyes might be what the organization needs. Yeah it might be. There's a tiny ants that you are exactly what the organization needs even though it doesn't know it But i would say who. Are those other people who know more about women's soccer than you and the through them would they like to president Then then i also feel. This is the part of the podcast where i scroll through my twitter bookmarks to see what i cared about. What did you have that. You had something on twitter. That was going to bring up on. I think about it. Oh what was. Because travis was too busy looking through his phone to find what he wanted to talk about. They realize you were saying dan christina. Give you the reaction that it deserved the spot and your state you grab a grub. After a victory was a thrill list guide. You guys remember thrill list apparently still around and it that this some you know those accounts on twitter that have check marks but they're just like max preps and you're like what is this and then you look at it and it's like we're a leader in high school sports. Maybe that's a big one. I don't. I don't follow high school sports because i obey. The law doesn't feel like a thing that i should be doing at this age A little icky right and so but you know those thrilling in guy ism. I worked for one of them. But so they put out one of those icons that says like what. Icon katie really. It's just like a a info-graphic found it. What state has the most iconic game spot in every state on the united states is replaced with the logo of the most popular post game spot in their in their. Oh this is fun eight. No it isn't fun because you're at all none of it's accurate. I don't want to hear how inaccurate it yeah yeah. So hawaii's is. I can't even tell what that says. So i can't some pizza. Great alaskan now. That's why you're right. I was looking at alaska hawaii. That's the day. I'm having zippy's in and out is California's water burger is texas mass. Up new york those borrows true. They watch the office and said let's do the that was exactly like the officer. Auntie ann's one's going to anti after a victory going to their also mall also massachusetts. being dunkin. donuts isn't wrong. We do hit dunks on the way back from the game but it's on the way to somewhere else. We're not partying at dunkin. Donuts like qualities at think. This is a dunkin donuts. parking lot. Connecticut's subway which is why old. That's the dunkin donuts. When i imagine going to subway to party. Should i ask my boyfriend. If after uconn football games they would go to subway party. This is after a victory so they wouldn't know sure jersey is blimpy and wendy's what's maryland. Wait wait hold on these two go together. New jersey is blimpy's but maryland. Looks like it's jersey.

Y'all i'm no one more of these dates. I thought i would. Tennessee is crystal and then kentucky is kentucky fried. Chicken ohio is wendy's illinois is up your local naming all of my states. You guys are not impressed by. Listen to christina's question did i. My apartment is right. Next to wendy's. So i went to wendy's so yes you personally give him. I went to win after win. So run dinner. I'd doesn't equate for me. All the article doesn't say did travis. Rock hold goto every go to wendy's after every single occasion. it's just after victories. And yes you did. Oregon has a place called papa. Murphy's taken bake pizza it's actually good now fall but don't it's taken bake. Is that just like you get it at a grocery store and then you make it at home. It's not looking for. Are they giving you frozen pizzas. You asked it's not frozen so you call and you have them put whatever you want on it you go pick it up take it home and then you bake it when you order. It's also not as your it's pick it up and then you may get the worst of both worlds if to leave your make it yourself and you have to make it. You're the only upside as you get exactly what you want on the pizza you. Why don't you just call me when you order a pizza and yeah but it is getting demanded. okay well. Cold stone is apparently where the state of arizona that one's arizona next to new mexico. Sure proud of herself. Known the all these states. And you guys are just like you got alaska. Hawaii i know did but it was really brief and we moved on from that Florida's burger king that tracks. No tracks tracks that tracks. Drunkenly got up a. I almost called it a mcchicken. Eight one of those. What are the long chicken sandwiches at burger king. They drunkenly eight one of those walking down the street in miami. So that tracks nice. I haven't been to a bird dave. pk lounges. I don't know if they're actually called that but they have the dane cook joke in florida. They have a b k. That sells drinks weird. Swain's how're yeah exactly Was that everything travis. Is there anything else in your in. Your life is went by way too quickly. I know i agree. And i only recorded half of it which is troublesome. I saw tweet that. This can't possibly be true. But i wanted to bring it up here on the podcasts. That eighteen percent of americans have personally invested in nf. And i was like excuse me Let's all assad commercial today on. Tom brady around he said. He's getting into the crypto game. And i just wanna say i vow to not do that. I don't know what that is. I don't trust that the people who know what it is aren't gonna take all my crypto. So i'm not doing the crypto game. I'm not going to put an ad out. Where i tell you to buy the sports coyne. I'm not gonna. I don't know i don't understand it. I think you're being sold nothing. And i don't like that if i'm going to sell you. Nothing is going to be in the traditional sense. A podcast where. I don't give you any sort of information that you need and i just waste two hours of your time but not gonna make you invest. There is a story. Tom brady is complaining about jersey numbers again. No well he's not wrong is weird i one. I actually even just watching them. Yeah i know. What did he wasn't. Bill is so a couple of the cowboys players wore different numbers in the preseason than what they're gonna wear on thursday when they play the buccaneers. And he's like. I'm watching film and number. I'm like although an players. They number niagara so in his mind. Let's say number eleven. Does this this and this will number. Eleven is now a different person. And so that to me. I actually agree with that too. Because then it's like you can't change jersey numbers midseason lightly zong. You're changing or jersey number before every game. Because that you know to tom's point how do you watch game film and prep well. Tom deal with them. No not me. I'm anti because it's illegally. I'm contractually obligated to disagree with travis and everything he says. A bit bill belt does have an issue with it. It's really be billy beato. Yeah we going for one more voice military.

Sports? with Katie Nolan

1:24:29 hr | 2 months ago

Drama at the Dog Park

"Sports with katie. Nolan is fueled by gatorade. Whatever path you take to greatness. Gatorade is there to fuel it. Greatness starts with g. You're just calling a stupid. They're picked maybe you are. Hello bubbles. Hello tiny little bubbles Welcome to sports. Why are you so frustrated bubbles q. No i'm okay with that one. The podcast it ends of the question mark but start to the question. You guessed it guys. That's travel i'm katie. Nolan travis is here. I'm the ghost christina's. Hey i wish you don't want. It was me who chose to say the twos thursdays. It'd be guests in tuesday's of and i should have just never done that. Why did they do that. Do this to myself. We'll do your defense at the beginning is like a meghan bill. Do podcast. With travis. And christina is i am completely being blind to the fact as i look back on my life that it was a big question mark whether or not this would be able to be done twice to some people. Yeah it's you know it but it's closer to an exclamation point. If not a period you know sure. Yeah all right. Welcome to the podcast. That discusses punctuation marks in heavy detail. The question mark in its name. So that's what i that was the my goodness you're back to a question mark It's thursday we have news to talk about but before we do that. I forgot i have to say that it starts with the question. So right. here's today's question. Hi katie traveling christina. This is from utah. I'm the one who broke the olympic torch. Don't worry still have my job job. I love and the head coach at the high school and we industry-leading world pretty excited because competitive trading is up for full consideration to be part of the twenty twenty la olympics and. There's a few other sports to cross and some others. I never heard of but my question. what for activity. Do you wish this. Part of the Thanks let you mean by. Oh zoe i love you and mean it to. There was so much in that there was so much to talk about but one of which being the cheerleading is up. What did she. What year is that twenty twenty six twenty eight twenty eight. That's i did not know that i didn't either. That's also curious about the international cheerleading. I was gonna say society community. I wanna see what that's about i've never thought of. I mean this is just me being from here and dumb I've just always associated cheerleading with like american football and so i haven't assumed that there is a wide international community for it but that's again i'm dumb. I was going to say the same thing. i think. This is just like my dumb showing. That i didn't realized we had international cheerleading. I can't wait to spend my day finding out more about it. Thank god. I was wondering what i was going to do today. 'cause i was ever those days we wake up and you look at it. And you're like it's bleak. There's nothing or is that just like the depression cool. It's probably that let's power through it. I was looking at my day. Like what am i gonna do. I'm already on season. Four of the sopranos mkx. What am i gonna do. Oh i'm on season five of southern charm. Now i was on season here. Hold on wait. We're not friendly battery at the point was. I'm now glad to look into international cheerleading. So thank you for giving full report next week. That's right question was what's the sport that you would like to see in the olympics. That isn't and you know since trampoline is already in. Is it still leonard. They get rid of it. We should check. But i think it's still in. I can't think of another sport. That i would need to get in. But i do think. I don't know i've when you would support what what sports. Oh i don't know if we're ready for that yet travis when ha. I don't know if we're because people get really freaked out when you call each sports athletes athletes in. There's a i don't think skip bayless is a brain can handle. If we started calling east. He would talk about that nonstop he would just be like. It's preposterous but i'm getting my memes of sports people who get paid a lot of money Confused do you think if e- sports was introduced to the olympics that it would finally break the stigma surrounding east sports and those data while his as athletes. only story. that the only story that we're gonna talk about today is kind of similar to this which is like stigmas in order for them to become stigmatized. Do you have to kind of go through the phase where they're still stigmatized and you have to fight through that. So i think putting i just feel like ea sports right away in the olympics. I don't know if people ready for it. But i would. I mean that'd be fine by me. I was gonna say american football but i also think that it would become a huge contract thing. Nobody would do it. And it's also terrible for their health and it's a game that allegedly could slowly kill them so don't think that other countries are like it. That's why you know that's why that's why you wanted to see just to see. Speaking of trampolines bring back slam. Ball is slam ball even a sport. That's what i said bring it back. We'll you'd have to. You wanna bring it back. Directly to the olympic weight goes straight to capture the flag cornell. Do they do that. Capture the flag is not a sport. You're naming games. These are games. listen. Zoe said activities there again. Yeah i man i. You can't add activity olympics. Only is a child's game. You guys aren't taking the question seriously next to you gonna say tag. I mean i would watch olympic tag. Would you not watch olympic tag. I would red rover foursquare say four corners heads up thumb. I never played four square. I do not know the rules of foursquare. I never played one single game. You know why because he had to be popular to play four square. My school shoutout nerds. There's never truly a winner in foursquare so you couldn't do that. Because i thought about that one. Because i love foursquare. I played to watt or stream jump roping. Don't they do like jump rope. Competitions action stuff. yeah. I don't think you have to call it. Extreme jumper up. That's when you do it on a cliff. Ooh thank you just yet doubleday. I saw gotta kick it up. Was what was the disney. Jump in or something. Maybe cordon bleu. Yeah yea yes great movie. What other sports could. What are some sports. That aren't because i remember not that long ago being like softballs not like there are sports that you found out samples for this year. It's not going to be just because japan. It seems like we'll get permanent part of the olympics. Do that sort of. How do you get to do that. Decide that we're only going to do it for a year. That doesn't seem fair. What is it like was either too young or didn't make the cut off this year. You shouldn't be an decide that it's interets out. Yeah i don't agree with that. Yeah me neither. But i think there are some other sports that you'd be shocked aren't in the olympics. I just can't think of any of them right now. We don't do any sort of. Mma fight offers. Do we do any sort of mma fighting no. There's taekwondo and judo and they should do something like boxing. I'll yeah well. they have boxing. We should talk fighting. What they make them wear tanked boxing. The guy's angrily these tank tops from. They say it's weird. I've got a real pet peeve with wardrobes in the olympics. now. Wow we boy. Can i not wait to get into that yes. We entered the question. I think our our consensus was flip. Zoe thank you so much for your question. If you're listening to this and you're like whoa this brain. Trust i must. I must have my question answered by them. Well you're not alone and you are in luck because you can leave a voicemail for us and we'll do this to it at eight six zero five. Oh six five seven one. Hello you to hello our we doing. You know it's another day. I could have done without today today. Just i woke up. I m like everything that's happening on mike. Okay why okay. Who cares and yeah. I don't know what it is about this thursday but to it like top to bottom you know. Yeah i have plenty of those days. So i have a question but i've been i've been wanting to hold onto this so you know wanna question. Thank you by the way for the exclusive content. Don't you guys feel loved and appreciated travis. Saved his best. Takes us on a take. It's a question. So the olympics has equestrian. Do the forces have to come from the respective country. Also by the way. I'm now realizing only reason you saved. This is because you somebody told you to in your twitter replies. Because i saw it really. I think you said something about a question and somebody was like. Save it for the pod. What was your actual question. Do the horses have to come from that respective country. Also i would assume no. I think they should be i. Actually i would assume yes. I wouldn't assume that the i was thinking you meant the breed itself from the united states of america. If it's gonna be. I bet it is. Yeah because it's like american owners. Wouldn't i would assume that that horses born and bred in the classroom they could. I don't know if they need to be read. Like i could have purchased the horse and then the do you want me to find out. I just don't want to be winning with an american horse rules for. I mean this is what i'm googling. Equestrian olympics rules for horses. Do a questions bring their own horses to the olympics. Here's how it works. Obviously the horses have to be flown to the tokyo olympics to compete in equestrian. And it's a very involved process. I think you should have to do it. With the horses in the In the area of the you show up and they give you a horse. Yeah we'll give you a horse. You just drink a number out of the hat and you get that there's no collusion. You can't collude with your horse. You guys don't have an existing relationship. I know this is a dumb take. Its horse steroids. No i don't think you can travis north saying that's what that's how you solve it a behind the scenes show they were loaded into. This is more about. This is answering the question of did you get the horse to the olympics. Which actually is not the question that i have but it costs thirty thousand dollars to fly a horse overseas dollars plus business business. That's for the extra legroom. Yeah just the for the emergency exit row and it has to give verbal confirmation that it can sit there. And it's says nee amendment to oh derails in this podcast is off them. Every horse has a passport but unlike human athletes. They must be microchips to travel. They also have an export health certificate. Okay or since passports. That's fun a horse. Passport the ra. I'm not going to be able to find the answer to this question. But i would assume that. It's whatever the barn farm. whatever it's called the ownership. I don't know who does the horse get a medal. That's your thing like you. Who can who. I assume that whoever. I've never seen on the podium. Where the horse st. They're not like next to the horse on the podium. Which i think is messed up. Yeah that's true you should put. You should have a horse podium to the work. The worst did a lot of the work well. I think that you could argue that. The work is telling the horse with to do. But you're right it's like it's like letting only the coaches stand on a medal podium for any other sport. Yeah yeah and that's not. That would be preposterous. I don't basketball. The coach doesn't get a medal really. Yeah i've never wondered that before. But i guess in other sports do coach get the middle. Like maybe that's why that swim. Coach was so fired up. No he doesn't because teams have a slew of coaches travis. Said or like you can bring you like your personal coach. sure Your life coach interesting. Well what were we talking about. Oh your question about horses. Yeah i don't know but but sounds like fits their horse. So you're welcome. I think everybody else do in the last two days anything. I watched a lot of southern charm. I went from. Yeah that too. I will do. I went from season three of southern charm on monday to now. I'm on season five. Yeah it's heidi feel about it You know at the point where you know when you when you watch reality. Tv and you're just happy that watching other people's drama makes you feel better about the point where i'm like well. Now i've watched so much of it that it's starting to make them sad. You gotta take a break. Yeah tap out. I i know that exact part. And i've been there and you're just like i'm starting to feel badly. Yeah right to invest it. Like okay but really. I didn't like the way she handled that situation. And now he's unfairly like retaliating. Now i'm way to invested. I need to take the weekend. Step away then come back next week. It's again like i said last week with it being drugs. It's like you can't let your body get too comfortable with it. You gotta take a little break so that you don't get to accustomed to up your dose and start like binging f boy island get so once it starts to feel like that you're just like let me take a step away and i'll come back to you. I'm guessing christina. You hit where the show actually was taking place during code which we watch his show. Reality show that took place during kobe. It gets really like depressing specific early on. You're like i remember that phase where i thought. Oh it'd be only two weeks and that's where they're at in the show then hits and you're like watching stuff that you just lived a year ago happy and so that's i don't think i mentally prepared for that yet because i think i'm still upset with all with all of the effects of the pandemic so i don't think that i'm mentally able to watch everybody else. A reality show go through what i'm standing. We thought it was going to be to me yet. Like And it's been over a year a year and a half Six six six sick awesome cool. I'm so sick of it. Me jails over. Travis may be over. I'm working on it. try it could what else. What have you done the last two days nothing. Nothing watched the sopranos. I took myrtle to the dog park. I saw a dog get. There was drama at the dog park yesterday. He's myrtle involved in no. No myrtle keeps doing this thing at the dog park. Now we're she'll just like run away for a little and play with a bunch of dogs sniff some butts and then she'll just come over to me and sit and look at me and i'm like you want to go play. It's you can go play it. She'll just like sit. And then i'll and then i'll be like go ahead and then she'll walk away and come back and sit. It's like what are you doing. You're the mayor this place get out there. Shake hands kiss babies that she's like. I'm not about this drama life. Yeah i think her. Her hip is really starting to hurt her. And i think we have to go figure out what that's about but that aside there was drama that we saw it pop. Hip nice travis is doing a call back to the title of our last episode. So if you wanna pause and give that the recognition. It deserves good so on our way on our way out of the park. Some real drama went down now. I'll be honest. this is all alleged. Okay so i. I didn't fully see but it appeared to me like one of the tiny fluffy dogs like like a like a not a teacup yorkie but shiqi haired but sm- yup like maybe like a shitzu small that picture that type of dog and then there was this other dog. That was like the almost like the dog that aaron rodgers has in the commercial. But it's not that dog but it's like a smaller like a but it's not very small whatever regular dog. That dog was barky because barking lot. And then i think it bit. That other dog had that dog in. Its mouth oh just going in the was like yep yep yep yep yep yep and you know when dogs go to the park to that point travis They do sometimes. We'll like nip to get your attention but got there's a line and when the line is crossed and i think it was because it looked like the dog was like firmly in the grip of the other dog like it didn't there's no blood or no wonder how to go. I think yells like. I think that dog is in that other dogs mouth as soon as the little dog got free. It sprinted across the park while still crying sprinted across the park in hid behind. Someone's legs all by that person's reaction it wasn't their owner so the dog was just trying to get as far away from as possible from the other dog and so i was just like an owner of the dog did nothing just like held. Her grabbed her. Dog's collar not even grabbed. That sounds too aggressive. Just like slowly was like what are you doing. You're not supposed to do that. And held its caller. The dog park sometimes seems like a lawless place. Sometimes it is travis. Sometimes you get people who come in and bring full bullet treats and you're just like what are you doing. Why would you bring candy. That's creepy then. My dog will run over and just jump up on this guy. And i'm like what she wants. The treats that she can smell in. That's why all the dogs are following you because you brought treats to the dog park. what are you doing. But it's a lawless place. So then myrtle. And i packed up her things and we headed out. Well she got drink water. I but then we had one myrtle have to tell you about the situation. Did she get a better look at. It just was like hey look mom. I don't really wanna talk about a- still kind of fresh. you know. We all saw that. And i think we all know how dogs feel about it and i. I don't want to let you know if i have history with that dog or not because boundaries. You're my mom not my friend. And it's important to me that i have. Yes something like that travis. But myrtle was she was just very like look. Please respect me and got it kid. And then we went home and we watched seventeen more episodes of the sopranos. All when you say what. Have i been doing since we last met a lot. Yeah my answer a whole bunch of stuff for the me. Yeah this is the only well. Not the only but this is the issue with a thursday is. You're like well. I haven't really done much more talking about except you know. Forty eight hours and slept. I slept twice to sleeps. I did to sleep so should be three sleeps though. Oh well oh. There's your mental health update. Look the the thing about medication is doesn't work right away in boy. Can i not say that enough. Because today is i woke up and was like i hate it all everything said and bad but we soldier on because this podcast brought to you by cancer. Get out of a gatorade water bottle do that thank you so much spawn con. Send me stuff gator. No what don't use me that way. Don't travis what. He's like me what i have to know you. Won't that's not supposed to don't sell out for gatorade i will. I will sell up on my. What do i get a sports travis. Rock hold do you want no but you could get you could sell yourself out to. You could get suffering gatorade today. I heard today on the gas. We're going to be a quick one in which is now the curse you know that we're going to be here for four more hours. There's gonna be a quick one. I just wanted to talk about bio stuff. I find it interesting. The national discourse on it has also been interesting And so we're going to talk about a bunch of aspects of that mostly. I think unless there's anything else you guys want to talk about like j. lo and ben being back together. I don't know that we've talked about that on this podcast but it's making me really happy new. Save that for monday. I think this podcast. We can just focus on simone. I think so. Yeah i talk about scarlett johansson. Now i haven't done enough research. Yeah because that's usually a thing you love to do.

Simone biles withdrew from the team competition at tokyo olympics. On which day was this. Because now i get confused because we wake up to the news but it doesn't air tuesday morning. We woke up to it. Because i went up and you were like i'm still gonna use it even though because we kind of talked about it last episode. We talked about wasn't didn't stuff. Yeah she hadn't pulled out yet Of anything and now she so tuesday she pulled out of the team competition and then wednesday she s out of the individual all around trek so those are the two stories and the the reason given was a mental health. She said once. I came out here to compete. I was like no mental is not there so i just need to let the girls do it and focus on myself Not surprisingly people had a lot to say but before we get blurry action. Twitter dot reckless shockingly but before we to the reaction to the thing Look we've been getting better at discussing mental health as a society. It's something that we've historically not been great on. I mean even watching documentaries about things that happened relatively recently. The one that i'm thinking of right now is britney spears just the way that we handled things in the public in the way that Not just women. But the way that people are scrutinized in their humanity gets lost in fame and Accolade it's like we just don't treat them as people It even looking at like from a couple years ago we've come. We've made progress. In the sweat progresses conversations that bad at having we slowly get better at having them and then you look back and you go. Wow we were really bad at that before and it's horrifying but it's a good sign that we're moving away from it. We've been getting better at talking about mental health. But the way that sports fans are the way that they engage in conversations was something that somebody on one of our interview episodes brought up that it was like this tie this sector of fandom this these types of fans engage with each other in certain types of ways. Sports fans like to debate. They like to argue. This person. sucks this person's good. there isn't as much room for nuance and that kind of conversation and so we were always living in a world where it was going to be difficult for people to accept mental health as a reason that someone can't compete the way that they accept an injury like a physical injury is you can't. They can't compete yet because it doesn't seem as real or whatever it's not as there's no evidence you can't be like look. This is my arm and broken. You can't necessarily do that with your brain and so when this happened. I'm so proud of simone. Biles like not to make this personal in a weird way but it it. I've talked before about how hard it is to come onto a podcast and be like hey. I'm having a hard time doing my job because of my mental health. And that's the amount of people paying attention to this podcast as we've found recently people reporting things like it's news when we've talked about it at lincoln's park has no one's really listening and that's still stressful as hell to come forward and say mentally. I'm not here right now. And things up and for simone biles to be in the spotlight being called the goethe being talked about in on the cover magazines in commercials. She's one of the stars. People are focusing on at the olympics. And she says like hey mentally. I'm not here right now. That's dangerous for me. And i'll get in the way of my teammates. Winning will get in the way of their chance at success. So i'm pulling out of this a backing out of this. I have to take care of myself for her to do that is so it's almost like she might be so young. She doesn't realize how brave is type thing but she's gotta know that that is incredibly difficult because of the reaction that she's going to get from people but she did it and i'm i'm i'm so like i don't know i'm just in all of her ability to that on an international stage think about this she about retiring and not competing in these olympics. And one of the reasons that she said that she wasn't going to is going to compete was that she could continue to put pressure on the usga because she's the face of unfortunately larry nassar and so if she goes away. They don't have that person there and that discussion might get. I wanna say swept under the rug. I discussed but by by her being there. She forces people talk about. She also can she can force us. J. to make changes the unfortunately some of these other girls can't have had because they don't carry the power that simone has so she went into the olympics with that already on her back and then at an all the other things it. I can't imagine what she was going through. Tis an incredibly impressive human and in the number of ways you know she can do things that that no one else has even attempted in a competition and then also go through what. She's been through and no to advocate for herself and stick up for herself. She's an incredible human. And i hope that she feels that way. Because people certainly didn't it was almost like people were mad at the people who said it was brave of her like the reaction i saw was people being mad that the narrative that was kind of emerging was. Wow how strong of you to recognize that and take care of yourself and then the second reaction was like. She quit on her team. Would you mean. She's brave are we encouraging people to quit now and it's like i saw a the dumbest tweet ever yesterday Where somebody was like michael jordan quits in game seven of the nba finals. These celebrated as a hero or something. And it's like this is not your compare. Your analogy is flawed. That's not at all the same type of thing that i was trying to think of an analogy to to try to help explain it to people who don't know and can't relate because listening to gymnasts talk about the twisties a thing that i don't think any of us knew about before and now are familiar with is like sh. They were saying that your body wants to do it wrong. Like one gymnasts was talking about how when she went up for a flip or something. Her body was twisting halfway. And it's like no no. That's not how you do the move and it's just you have to like unless you have to go through the basic steps and kind of reteach it to yourself and it's a process and so the way i interpreted that as is like it's like a file is corrupted on your computer and you're supposed to run the file you can run it. It might screw up your computer. It might make things a lot worse in the long run it might work but chances are it's not going to or you uninstall it and reinstall the file and run it then. And it's like if she had had the time if this had been happening to her earlier than she could you know on learn relearn and then go compete at the olympics. And be this mon byles at. Everybody was hoping or expecting to see. But if it's happening to you at the olympics you'd can't take the time to unlearn and relearn. You can't you can't do anything about it except protect your safety because also if you don't if you're not feeling well for a basketball game you're not at risk of snapping your neck in half like if you're not mentally there and you're gonna flip through the air like that it's very dangerous people compared it to like you know it's kind of like the yips but imagine if was if you missed this putt you could potentially fall over and break your neck. Yeah like scary. Like one supposed to do a two and a half twisting vault and she wanted a one and a half. I mean the the fact that i just went back to the jailing the for second people like oh you know he never quit on a game seventy well. He did kind of actually leave basketball because of a lot of things going on in his life and play baseball. Because you mean don't pick the guy who quit and use it as the example. I think that what the most frustrating things it took me. I didn't want to react. Initially and i wanted to see what everybody else was saying. And i think know uh three were on the same page with us but i think with the most frustrating thing that i kept seeing was people saying if i were simone will first of all you are not and you will not ever be. I think. What's what's frustrating as when especially people who don't understand mental health in a sense that you are lucky that you don't experience in zaidi. You're lucky that you don't experience depression or you. You aren't going through something. Like what simone is going through on an international stage. It's unfair of you to to say. Well i would do this differently if i were her. Will you're not her. You don't know what she's feeling you don't know what she's going through in what what was i. Think is what's most frustrating as people don't realize the amount of training and what she's dedicated not just her life and her body but everything about her. She is dedicated to this sport. Not not just the last five years but her entire life. It's all led up to this point and we watched her for two weeks out of the year. But we don't see all of the other competitions and all of the practices and everything that goes into this moment and so when you see her stepping away the people who are saying. Oh she's quitting. She is letting her team down blah blah blah. You don't know the years of tears and broken bones and depression anxiety all of that stuff. That's gone into getting her here. She said she wanted to retire and she. Her heart wasn't fully into being in this olympics. Anyway it took a lot for her to get there. And i think it took it. Bravery is one thing. I would say but i think it took a lot more out of her walk away from it because she's dedicated her entire life to this and it's unfair for people to say she's quitting. She's not quitting. She's saving herself because the sport is so dangerous and it took so much for her to get here to begin with. And i think that people don't see that they just see. Oh she's walking away. she's a quitter. Why if i were her. I wouldn't do. She's leading rusher exactly you. I would suggest to most adults in most situations especially when talking about someone you've never met personally and you're not similar to just don't try not to start sentences with like well if i were this person because it's like you don't know you don't know you don't know what it feels like unless you can somehow relate to being an individual athlete at the national of national fame representing your nation. And you don't know what you would do. You don't know how scary it is. You have no idea and just you don't. You certainly don't have an idea better than she does. And it just seems like an unwillingness to hear out a woman telling you what is happening in her brain. It happens to be a woman in this situation. I'm not trying to make that larger point necessarily. It's just like this person's telling you like hey. I'm not cool to keep going. And because of the way that we are people were very quick to bring up kerri strug and that it was so indicative to me of Well i mean a willingness of like who were willing to Indict for things and who were willing to celebrate but also the the difference between a physical and a mental inch injury like kerri strug had to be in a great mental place to overcome the pain of her injury. That was physical. What simone was saying that she was having trouble mentally. So it's not that cheap. Why is she now a quitter. Your kerry strug didn't say that she was having trouble mentally if she had been she wouldn't have been able to concord this pain be in control of the situation. Simone said she lost herself in the air. She was not in control mentally. It's just seeing people be like kerry strug did. It's like what no. How are you misunderstanding. That so completely. It's not the same quote. I had no idea where i was in the air. You what i feel. Every time i watch her do flips. Every time i walked her do flips and twists. I'm like i'm getting dizzy. So for her to say. I'm dizzy is like oh boy. That's bad. that's very bad later. Designing land yes to the to the people that said like she quit on her team first of all her teammates. No her. they don't feel that also her team in this case is us g. a. Whatever it is they quit on her and longtime ago so she doesn't know what bam thing to that organization and then like or to anybody else. Pain is something that i just live with injuries. She's talking about how she's always just always in pain. there's been a calf. I have partially torn two or three times. A broken rib o. Yet turned out my toes shattered and five places in the last olympics. Oh this body. It's starts when i wake up. I can tell you straight given that the reader deserves. Oh this body. I can tell you straightaway if it's cold or not because my bones will shake i joke. I joke my friends a lot that i'm going to be in a wheelchair at thirty. My body feels like maybe it's an it's thirties or forties. Maybe older it screaming and yelling at me. I mean that last sentence and she. I know for different reasons put same. My body is screaming and yelling at me as well she guys. It's this is the thing when people are like gymnasts aren't athletes or this board or lake. Assad difficult you're beating up your body when people ask me a lame rhythmic gymnast who quit. By the time. I was very lane i had. Boom people are like you ever get hurt. My ankle was sprained every other week. It just is how it is for. Real gymnasts like the flipping type of gymnasts. It's pounding your joints constantly. What i think is is messed up in. This situation is when you make those comparisons to athletes who by all accounts it every bit of props to them if they were in the mental space to be able to overcome a current injury to then finish competing which is something they did not have to do To make that comparison to now. Oh simone you have to show us a physical in order for us to you know. Accept the fact that you're walking away. I think is so wildly unfair. Because they've necessarily said that. I think it's just more hidden in what they're saying. It's like it's like the quiet part of what they're saying is like if you can't see it you don't believe it exactly. I think that's what people have a hard time grasping the fact that it you know. Does she have to play through a broken bone for you to believe that. She's tough and that she deserves to walk away from something that none of us have any any You know leg to stand on when we say oh you quitting. She's not she is if anything she's getting ahead of the game and saying hey if i go out there and launched myself into the air and twist sixteen times four land on the ground. If i don't do that with a perfect mental stability. i might kill myself. I might land the wrong way and break a bone. My my back might break. I might end up in a wheelchair. She saying these things to say. I'm saving myself. Because i need to be in the right mental space to do that and i'm not full. Yeah and pulling out of the team competition. It was the most helpful thing she could do to her team. Exactly she's a way could have exactly and it just seems like people. I don't know wanted to see her perform so badly that they are. They wanted to not make. She hated her for doing that. And they just they don't they don't. I've watched them on something today. Just clip that. I saw online where they basically like. We don't have to prove anything to you or like. We don't owe anybody anything at sucks for her. But it's actually a good way that it was simone because he magic one of the other girls they don't have a like the star needs to be the first person to show. That meant often. Step away. Because i can only imagine it. There's probably women and men that have had been the same position but they are that attitude where they have the ability to career more that people would identify them as the person who because it's still like worse as you said we're still trying to work that way like may- maybe restrict didn't want to compete but back. Then there was no no win. Hell that she was going to be able to say. I can't do it. Shooting crushing reasons with the gymnastics program. And i don't think no was usually an option you heard. Michael phelps talk about it like it's yeah what did he say. 'cause here's the thing as i say we're getting better at having these conversations. They are difficult to have. And when i was watching one clip. I'm michael phelps was like. He's he's right but he's we still talk about it. Sometimes in these vague terms that then people get confused by or just. Don't you know what i mean. We're just here the same terms over and over. And you're like say the same thing don't say around. The thing was basically saying that these these athletes. They need someone there that they can talk to. That can protect them. I hope this is an opportunity for us to jump on boarding and blow this mental health thing even more wide open. It's so much bigger than we can ever imagine going. He admittedly has gone through things himself. You know not comparing the not the same but and then. I was watching the olympics last night and they brought up this australian swimmer kate campbell in two thousand sixteen. She was the favourite to win hundred free in her words. Chote finished fifth and australia. Take swimming like we do our gymnastics and got ridiculed and then two years later she wrote this open letter to dear key keyboard warriors which i didn't even know about until now but it's like almost just perfectly says what these athletes are going through. Here's part of it. So here's the point that i want to make. Let's change the way we view failure. It seen as a dirty word something that we should be ashamed of. But let me tell you. It takes a hell of a lot of time. Effort diligence perseverance and above all courage to get to the place. Where failures possible. Because it's the same place where success as possible instead of shaming people. What's applaud the courage to go and do something that we're not breaking up there capable enough to do ourselves like it or not. I still did a better job out there than interview. Could i have one thing to ask before. I go and that is to be kind. Think before you type before you begin to limber up your thumbs ask yourself. Are you qualified to level of criticism and salt. That's at your fingertips. That's you what i'll tell you who's not gonna listen to that keyboard warrior. They tuned out. Were valid points. But i'll tell you exactly who's not gonna you know what they're not only going to not read it. They're gonna read one line in it that they take a an issue with and then they're going to just type type type type because that's what they do. That's what they do you have to. There's a certain level of like people are going to do that. But when we when she writes things like this when she says things like this when anybody does and take a stand like this and speaks up for like hey by the way. It's it those people are still going to exist. But they're gonna be less and less you're not necessarily converting them. You're sort of bringing out the people who probably agree with you but don't see views like that expressed often on your platform kevin love. Yesterday i had something very similar that he posted on instagram What i've found in believed to be the truth. Is that once your insecurities are out in the open. This becomes your weapon therefore disarming everyone else you can't use me against me understand this by being open about your struggles you flip vulnerabilities into victories. The mental freedom comes in knowing once you put yourself out there. The other side is a reward of community and belonging to simone and others who have openly shared their story. You're helping many continued to lean into discomfort invulnerability. Don't deny your story defy the ending. Like oh shoot. Kevin love okay. Go all think about it. Naomi asaka was atlas keyboard. Warriors getting crushed because she did. Some photo shoots that when they were did when they were taken. I don't know that came out. How dare she do some photo shoots when she's not willing to meet with the media like those two are the same thing i think we we as observers and people who you know you. You don't participate in the sport. You are not the athlete. You were not in their shoes. Had say that too loud. They'll get upset. Have but these people in managed just like you or i people but these people who just can't see clearly to see you're not in their shoes. You don't have the right to criticize what they are doing. Because you might have done it differently. You don't know how you would have done it because you are not there and you didn't go through it. You're not going through the mental anguish. That they're going through I decided i'll never understand keyboard warriors who get on their soapbox yell about how we think about that along. How else i if. I weren't if i didn't have a twitter platform if i were just a a when i logged on i had. Let's say i don't know one hundred twenty followers. What would make me so mad. That i would have to log into my account and tweet at that person that i hated it or that. I didn't like it or that. I didn't like a decision that they made. And i i don't i can't think chavez you feel like a good resource for this is a person who bad reviews like what one of the reasons that. It's very easy for people to do that. As you can go on and credit twitter account at five followers and not be held accountable for things that you say so. It's easy to say. That's why like i have a rule that if there's not an x. amount of followers if someone says something to me i i wouldn't even respond and with a point now if there's a legitimate point to what they're saying vidartes somewhere followers but if they're just sitting there they're just going to bash you and they're like they're clearly and their their profile photo. Is you know rainbow or waterfall like fall. It's usually mean a dog or just a little silhouettes of bergson as though the twitter makes it so easy. Because you can't for most unless you're stupid enough to put your name out there and say things you're not going to be held accountable for things that you said you can go out there. And say they log off and they forget about the things that they said and then the person that reads it in the back of their head. I think they argue about it with the people in their real life than putting a lot of your aggression out onto the internet and it's really aggressive like it's really potent aggression it's seeping out and other places of your life as well you're mad at something else. Goes lately when people yell at me about stuff when they project their political anger onto me. When all i do is like i'll write a joke. About something like responded. Someone's tweet with a joke and someone will be like you lands from the mike. Do figure out who your mad at and then go work it out with them. Because it's not me. I just made a joke. It was very funny. It had nothing to do with any of the things that you're yelling about. Police go figure out where your mouth out. The other thing is now. And i've even made jokes about it with the money. Now when i've said it it's if someone loses a job in. Everything's i'm not. There's mental health issues that's different. I've always said you know like if coaches fired. He's this bild's twenty million dollars on my the i'm speaking of just strictly sports but like there's a lot of times where people go to work for their job and they don't have the ability to call out or deal with these things so they they're making the money that they're making the athletes making millions in. Its oh if i can go into work so can you or you can do these things and i think the money is where an. Another major disconnect. Oh for sure absolutely that creates this. They make so much money their life and their job is so wildly different than yours. Their job is to workout and eat right and train and entertain us on a level of the international stage where they're supposed to win us gold medals and we somehow feel like that entitles us to say. You're a quitter if you can't do that. The money thing goes as well with Olympic athletes as it does say with simone with simone. It does though you're right the from endorsements and stuff but i mean like mostly olympic athletes. You're not like damn you guys make so much money. Because i think so it. So let's say it's one of the other women that was on the gymnastics team. I don't think we're having this backlash but part of it is is simone's profile compared to that so it's that it's so doesn't i'm not i'm not i'm just saying l. Her name gives us all right to say she's quitter. Not saying it's right. I'm just saying that. That's how i i believe that. That's just how would have went down. Yeah because i can't a number of things who like eiser a number a number of things that i can't name only name. One other person on that gymnastics team and that's just because she happened when gold in the individual all around. What obscenely so crazy is these people who are yelling at simone. It's like okay. Can you name any of the other gymnasts number. What do you know anything else about this sport now but you guys need to understand that outrage is an industry outrage is a thousand percent a profitable industry and they are going to just keep doing this and and people go to it like moths to a flame because it seems interesting and passionate and it's crazy it's not boring. It's not boring outraged. And so people just kind of fall for the like. Oh yeah. you're about that. Gymnast they just distill stories down to a headline making yell about. And you've got to know that's going to happen. And stop giving those people your eyeballs your clicks your money because those people are just playing. You like a fiddle. They're telling you what to be mad at when if you really were to come over and like listen to the thing. Pay attention if you had the time to pay attention to everything. You'd know that it's not that big of a deal. It's not the way you see it. It's this way and if all you're gonna do is read a headline you're not going to get the full story. Let's just how it's going to go and what's also sad is. Let's say that after the she withdrew from the to the team and she was able to work with coaches trainers or whatever and get herself right. He imagined she would have had to face backlash if she then went and the individual all around like she was literally in a no win position. Then yeah not that. I did i. Not how decision saying. It's like she literally. That's the new thing that people would have been complaining about his. Oh she couldn't compete with the team but go to the olympics and compete in all the events she was supposed to do and win gold if she did anything less than that. There is going to be backlash about how she was over. Hyped or about it could have been any million number of things all that she like. All we allow for wiggle room is is like do exactly what we think. You're going to win the gold. Be the best and if you do less than that will then every story about you was ally and you're actually not talented. Which is sick. i love that. It's the coolest thing about society. I think we'll she still was scoring really high so she's silken a competed and helped out the team like unc could've broker back. Yes could add I saw a story so last night. Maybe it was too now. I'm confused again. But to so she pulled out of the team competition i then she pulled out of the individual all around and then has she pulled out yet from joel events so no i saw somebody Wondering like why she didn't just pull out of them all at once. And i also saw somebody say that once you pull out of an event in your no longer competing you have to leave the olympic village within forty eight hours. Oh and so. I feel like those two things might be connected because seeing her root for not just her teammates but other gymnasts loudly from the sidelines. Is that even what's called From a next to the matt a it's like she's there it was awesome. She's there being supportive and rooting for people. And just you know having a blast on the side mats. And i wonder if it's like she can't pull out once she pulls out she's going to have to go if that is true. Abbott to the list of things that that alleged by the way that's just me making a guest based on two back to i'm going to act as if it's factual and if it is added to the list of just idiotic things at the. Why wouldn't you let her stick around. Maybe they would make a special exception again. I don't know this is just me saying those two facts seem related. But i guess maybe it is entirely possible. She's still going to compete in the individual events. I for her. If she gets her mind i hope she does. But i also hope that she doesn't just you know what you should hope for and i will hope for and everyone should hope for is that she's at peace. I hope exactly for her. I hope that she's not feeling anxiety or anguish related to this decision. I hope that whatever the decision ends up being she feels like okay and that is it. You know so. We wish her piece travis with like you were going to say something but now you look like you might be frozen No i was just seeing. If there's anything else that i put in the stock. I put a lot of awesome things. How did you know i wanted. I wanted to try to make sure that i was informed. Oh that's really sweet. Did you learn anything new Learn about the the twist which is just scary absolute like i can't do a cartwheel. I mean that's travis pathetic. It's no it's not can most can. Most adult men do a cartwheel say. Put it on a pole. Because you're a man. What do you mean you mean. I think i think most adult women can do a cartwheel most adult women. Yes most adult men. I would say now travis. You think it's not weird that you can't so you would not. I don't think i don't think it's that naturally be get older. I think men are much less flexible and they don't care to fix that so most men can. I've been flexible since i was fourteen. So you don't have to be flexible to do a cartwheel and play helps. I was just gonna call golick but are they on the radio. He's literally on the air. I was just going to call and ask if he could do a cartwheel. I mean you could call him. I don't think he'll answer. Why would i do that. He's on the radio. Jimmy give you the hotline number to get on to the show. I know though. I wanna know are red. It's thoughts on if most. Do you think most adults who identify as male can do a cartwheel. I can tell you know what twenty one after he can or can't hand cannot he can't even touch his toes. Damn either can you do a cartwheel. No dances now. Let's go so. I mean i think think you guys don't know what a cart wheel is. There's no way you that you'll know what a cartwheel wheel i. They're not just call a stupid there. And maybe you are what. You can't not do a car wheel. You just put your hands down in the nuclear leads down johnson yesterday on hugh and i'm no longer chain for you. It's not like a front handspring or a back handspring. I've never been able to do a back. Handspring i can do back. Walkover it's handspring's for slows. Its handspring's or the untalented. Were you just slowly. Walk yourself over yourself cartwheel is. I'm offended how can you not do it. Do you want me to like move my computer and try to do in the hallway. Of course yes. I was trying to see if i have a room in this house for two mcdyess. Knock on this is going to be bad. How can make sure we don't see it yet. Make sure we can see it. He's not he's just for the autumn wearing. There's my keyboard almost almost all the way buttoned up flannel red and blue checks and doing this in front of someone's office. Oh god this is. He's going to break something. Oh gee us pay was close. He did like a round off. Well i would say where i would deduct points. We'll wait till he sits down and we'll give him. We'll judge them. Hey travis can you hear us got you. Where are the judges. We're going to give you your demerits now. So we'll take my difficulty though i was in the difficulty of a cart. Wheel is very low. It's pretty easy. But i was. I'm in jeans and a hallway at work. I mean engines again. You guys are overestimating flexible. You have to be your hips. had eaten. Get your hips up. They didn't go over you the way they're supposed to. They wanted us side. You took a wide turn but and you landed two feet at the same time which is fair. It was going to do it back handspring after that. Yeah no no no you were in no position to do a back handspring. As you're facing entirely the wrong way somehow you ended the cartwheel quote unquote facing the way you start. It was doesn't was creating my own. It was the rachael to the raw. Now you are naming you deserve. Simone biles sale after your inability to do heart was able to wear those like. What are those pants at. The guys were in gymnastics. I think i would have been able to complete it better tight. Are they tights. What do they want to see. Some crazy should look the shoes that you wear in rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder if they even still do. This redneck gymnast sticks. They were these little half. Oh my god look at them. Did you google. So i feel like i twisted my back. Could i get workman's comp for that no because you did something dumb in the office yet but it was like little toe sacks you put them over just your toes and you put those a rubber bands behind your feet behind her. He'll man. I used to have like big scars from where the rubber band would dig into. My foot aren't those the weirdest thing you've ever seen. What's what is the point of those. They're sodhani rhythmic gymnastics shoes. And you're supposed to do with fifteen minutes ago. Don't bother now cares. This is like a weird ballet shoe. Almost kala felt like not as you've seen those before. Travis way to tell me that you go to websites nap before i took dance lessons as a kid. Yeah but those are rhythmic gymnastics shoes. I think specifically. I don't think you see them much all. See there's a difference in the back. Yeah yeah there's no back. It's just the tow. It's just a little sack that you put over your toes. Why even wear them at that point. It's a great point. I'm gonna send you guys this video because we've only done an hour and we'll wrap on this. But i had another always meltzer by the way i know we're gonna get there. I i had to go through old rhythmic gymnastics video of me because I might be doing a thing. I think i said this already for pablo for espn daily. Were i'm the rhythmic gymnasts waiting for this. And i anyway. I had to go through old video and i found out during the doing of that. That we don't have any from my actual when i was older and did it and got my gold medal like older but i have like my very first meet. It's the only video i have. It's like oh man. I can't ever see if i was good. Or if it was just in my head to shore but i did find this video of me that i took a little video of to send a pablo as like. This is the quality of video that i have in the haircut. This is during warm isn't during competition but this is when i was I mean this is probably just starting so what. Oh the video me the one with the mullet. Katie jay leno hair omar helmet hair. Look like i got a helmet. That's not a how a and could use some work with the toe at the end. All right travis. I know but i you q at the end like i did. I toes and i was like. Why does my coach always yell to put my toes and now looking at that video. Like jesus while you're you're damned does like you kind of do it and then you look at your girl next to you and you're like oh that's how i do it. I wasn't all that good guys but anyway that's me with a mullet. We'll just assume that that other girls like an age bracket above. I think that's michelle. I think she was. I think you might be ripe. Chelsom might have been my age. I was very tiny for awhile. Who's the little lady. You should try to do that again. Give rhythms nasa chance. It has become in the olympics. Once started being able to watch other countries that really take it seriously do it. I was like oh this was going to get too flexible for me anyway. I was going to hit a ceiling in this sport. Anyway because they border line there borderline contortionists. They can do stuff. That i'm like all right. I have some of it. I don't have that that is wild. I remember a girl who started with her. Starting position was she would Let me try to do this with words instead of visuals. As if you're doing the snake you know how you roll your chest onto the ground. Kick her legs so this was her. Starting position held the ball. This little ball. That's the apparatus between her the souls of her feet and held it over in front of her face. Whether starting position can't with her her legs rolled over. Travis as we aren't we all that was their starting positions. When i saw that in the olympics i was like oh i didn't only words on the ground basically. I didn't only stop because my team dissolved. I stopped because i would have stopped for another reason. And it's because i can't end my body. That way at my body physically does not fold that way. Germany moves named after. You know not a single one except probably getting a deduction because my ribbon touched the floor. He couldn't name that after. That happened all the time. You're not supposed to let that thing touch vogue around baton and as you get older they get longer. The ribbon gets longer and longer so you have to kant. It's not dead ribbon was another one. I gotta lot dead ribbon was when you're not moving in any way it's just hanging there And when it touches the ground. Also bad man my wrists. I had strong risk kid. 'cause you're always doing those circles spirals with the ribbon it's just this over and over pretty cool The coolest pretty cool sport video gonna sell it right now. Yeah you do that. I'm going to sell the video of you. Doing a half cartwheel jokes on you have the video of that. Yeah yeah.

That's high you may believed wondered so there. There's still too. Yeah oh it's me back up you back. Hi i'm back. sorry lots cut into their. There's right now we're over two eight months ago.

Easy mode everything. Get life Life emotions dating dating there. We go dating. Set it all on easy mode please. Yeah i would say ooh setting something on easy mode. I would say like inside triggers like being able to like talk yourself off a ledge after you're becoming anxious put that on like make that user bay to navigate situations. Yeah travis is like. I don't get that terms like just tell yourself you're the best remember that there's some like i'm like i'm just in a funk but i usually can just work myself out of it. Yeah the whole working myself and adapted the funk. I was born in it i listen. I'm i guess. I'm blessed area where there's times where i'm like man. I'm gonna flunk. But i'm able to go to the gym poor drink sick. Watch cool i get in a funk and two i can't get out of bed for six days funk and i nap for eight hours i get in a funk. I tell myself that. Because i'm in a funk i deserve to be in a funk for is funk sucky new suck in you should just stay out of everyone's way everyone wants you to leave him alone because suck in travis's like oh. I'm gonna to the gym i today. I'm like you know rep a couple. Barbells all rep a couple barbells talking about you sound sound like me. Rep a couple barbells. And now i think in the bar bill area of the gym. I'm in the. I only like doing weights. Cardio and i we don't get it's cardio machines. I'm not over there with some big boy. No we're the machines in cardio that's it for me. Yeah cardio get how to use most of the machines. I mean if commercials are to be believed. Olympic athletes are working out with nordictrack. So i mean but wasn't really want to sponsor me. Give me one a nordictrack travis. Why here do you need anything. I mean the sierra stationary by. He's doing well stationary. Bike would be nice. I thought about it. And then i was like. You're such a poser. i use it. I know for day if i had a stationary bike in my apartment. Wouldn't use it closed behind on exactly. I was sure it would be a laundry bike. Because i you know i do so much laundry. I you know what. I have a complex about setting my video game too easy mode because i feel like feels like a like a like. I'm cheating respond while it lasted all on my frozen again. What do you mean. I'm right here. You got your back again. Can you hear me. You have a complex about why. I'm really sorry about setting video games to easy mode because it feels like cheating. It's it's feels like well. This is made for someone who's never played video games before. And i have so i need to just admit that i suck instead. I can't put it on easy. You're like if you're cruising through it you need to up. It's okay if you want to share this. So here's like my go susu shema. I started playing it. I admittedly wasn't in the space to like. Learn how to do something. New and the buttons are kinda complicated but somebody was like you gotta just put it on easy mode. Can't and that's probably what i should do. Because i'm having a hard time. But i can't because then i'll be like well not gonna replay the whole game and i'll never wanna tell anybody i played it because all know deep down that i played it on baby mode be baby and then go point katie. Yeah but then you'd have to replay the whole game again now. I already know what happens. I'm very story motivates. Once you beat the game you don't go back. You never played again sometime sometimes. Like if god god a war there was a there. Were like once you finish the story. You're not even close to being done because you can still go beat all the valkyries and you can still go to that. One like muscle heimer whatever. We have to run around and do timed challenges. There is still stuff to do. I'll play games like that. But i won't go back into the story and replay the story again usually that bad. I don't i don't think it's bad or good. I think it says to your own. Just when i used to play like i ask no mad at me. I'm not mad at you. I mean it's so. Matt you bought the game you paid for you. Live your life how you want to. But i think for me. It's just like you read a book and then maybe someday you go back to it. You can reference it that you like after two years but i don't yeah you're right. That is gotta read bull. But i can read articles homeboy tuned. Aren't we wait. Wait so this is the part where you're thinking we're doomed as my part where we're doomed while travels to be fair literally eight things over. The last two days have made me go. We're doomed and again. I think it's important to disclose it might be the depression But yeah we're doomed. I don't read books. I can read ten things that has happened that you like all right. We're not doomed now. Not a single thing has made me think we're not doomed so i don't think you understand how this works. Everything sadden bad and mean all the time. Just hang out with me. Katie stern k. Okay hanging out as exhausting christina just typing something and looking for something but for some reason the way you were typing bouncing in a way that made you look like a boomerang nice you like looked like a boomerang of yourself. Like what is getting a christina on a loop. I olympic sport. What from the first question and our discuss. Oh also known as frisbee golf frisbee. Golf ultimate frisbee ultimate frisbee. Where you're running around here which could be another while you're talking froth yeah. Do both sure it's like equestrian in dressage. It's like if you're going to bring the horses. Might as well get more out of them. If you're going to transport those frisbees all the way over here might as well use them twice. Yeah okay. I feel like a podcast. Need to put us in control early. Not travis moore to say they need to put us in control of the olympics was the take by the way. Yeah because. I don't think that that's true. I think there's a lot more involved than than maybe put control of. What games are competed with. And then also we oversee uniforms. What okay yeah. We didn't even get to this. So i do want to hear it. What is your gripe with uniforms. The box i'll bet you guys. It's not anything that's like. You should be able to wear whatever swim cap you want. I bet it's just like i don't like the way they have straps. It's the one is the boxing. The guy's wearing tank tops like are they singlets or are they shorts and then like a tank top on okay Then there's one of the Beach volleyball teams for the women. Usa there visors at they're wearing like maroon That's not read. that's true. well. I can under- he's add a red. That would bother my. Ocd with like if they were they wearing red for other stuff that clashes because that bugs me. It's enough that bothers me. I can't remember exactly what they were wearing. It bothers travel. Then why do the guys were like agenda pants and gymnastics. But why don't the women exactly those pants look so comfy. the sweatpants several like popular back in high school. Girls always were like i forget the material as your reclined. Yoga pants no that yoga pants. Whatever like victoria's secret so sweatpants settlers terry cloth sure. That's what they look or the lower. It was closer. That's the one that's what they look at. Uc jumpsuits man when we were When i was rhythmic gymnastics ing. We crushed velvet was in for the lien tartans and we had a velvet and crushed velvet. Leotards there were like purple and black and white and then we had these warm. That looked like trash bags. They were awesome. I would absolutely wear them now but they Wouldn't fit 'cause. I was a baby with a mullet. Should bring you had a mola. Mola blown mullet. That's my favorite katie. Yes she katie she. She still hearing zaib aside. She comes out anytime someone anytime. Someone says that my look scott me my job. I'm like do you understand. Why look like in my in my head. You understand the me i see. It's that little dork. I look at the mirror. And i see a mullet i am. I'm still her so it's still uncomfortable for me. Thought about growing stop you. Should you know early enough. I you with one. Who is the the high school number. One quarterback prospect yours. Yeah that haircut. According to me is very common. Oh she went to like a thing where she was going to watch him and she was like. Oh just look for the guy with the bleached-blond mullet and she's like there were multiple guys with their high school there. There's a thing with the program. They bleached their hair. He's just kept with it. I mean coastal carolina. Last year ted gallagher and salads kelly started rocking. Mullets analogy the quarterback. Has it the coach. Promise that they won the conference they would he would grow out. He's growing one. Like after team has molitor at malton fad. But so here's the reason i basically is. I'm single and if there's a if everyone to find a girl. I don't think meeting with bowl is going to help i'd have to. I think this must also meena said that she asked aren't don't you want to. You know meet girls. Girls love it. You see how the difference with him is. He's the number one recruiting the country going to state and he's played quarterback at texas. I'm thirty-three-year-old ironic haircut for him. Thirty three years old living connecticut. It's exactly it's irony is what it is the difference between him having that haircut and you have in that haircut sh- funny that he has for me. Just say to you travis. I do fully support you getting that haircut i would It would actually be one of the few things that would bring me pure joy if you showed up to the next podcast with a bleached blond mullet definitely wouldn't believe it and it's gonna take more than one week our mullet okay. Well to the to podcast from now on is take your hair to grow out. Because i know guys get their haircut like every chief haircut cut a lot. Get one this weekend. Oh god it's i have to get one. I think i might just do it myself. I did. I cut my own hair a couple days ago just ends just dead ends in my head. I think it's going to be easy and it's actually. I'd like to put that on easy mode. I wanna put cutting your own hair on easy mode. Yeah i want to push your plucking my eyebrows on easy mode but susie though no. It's not it's painful still hurts and if you if you pluck the wrong hair now all of a sudden your eyebrows are off. They're not they're not twins anymore. They're like distant cousins. they're not supposed to be twins. They're supposed to be cousins. Are they Your eyebrows are supposed to be cousins. Not twins thing within. I'm perfect for that. Because i have one. That's got like a minor to different shapes so one of mine is constantly raised. I'm like the rock. Maybe there's different guys and girls because it doesn't hurt for me just flip the middle and it's gone. It doesn't hurt. Here's the thing. It doesn't hurt once you've done it a bunch of times. I've been plucking my eyebrows. Since i was eleven. I wish you saw the sideburns. In that video i have been there. There's no nerve endings. Left on my center does all the worst is when you have to lock under your eyebrow like right above your eyelid. Vat is painful now. See still nothing. I got my face. Laser d- when before laser technology was made to be painless. I had my face shot with lasers by a woman who is just learning how to use it so she did it for free. It was my mom's friend it hurts so much and still it didn't take it off but it's i feel nothing on my face and to keep the bushings down instead of like trying to individuals. I just we'll just pull a few out and it just keeps it. Do you do with your way. You're indicating that looks just like travis. What how you're just like you preen you. He's doing it right now. It's very unnerving. Okay okay all right. I think we're done now. He suss. i think it's i think that's it for this week's condition sports out to gatorade and i'm sorry shots in the meantime show featuring menas osorio such so. Check out our podcast. Why is he the way that he is. If you need another reason to listen not sure why but if you insist nobody covers. Nfl like meena. If you still aren't convinced. Her dog is on the podcast. How can you say no how can you can you say no to that conflict. Tros wrote i mean he makes a good point. How can you can you say no to that and big. Thanks you guys for listening now. And then that second time. Maybe that's second time you'll really hear the hair. Come out of travis face maybe we hear the rip noise and you know you wouldn't wanna miss that so definitely be sure to listen to it. He's still doing it by the line. Pretty disgusting right we see it or you can always leave us. Nice review wherever. You're listening to his bug. Which by the way travis. Region travis loves them like this one from stephen fan thinks that says hi. Katie chavis in christina katie. Your openness bump mental health makes me feel more human. This podcast is about sport. But really it's about the human and all of us even when i don't agree with travis a little. Yes that's the review. that's that's our michelin star. That's what we're going for. Lastly don't forget that you can always leave us a voicemail numbers eight six. Oh five oh six. Five five seven one. I feel like we are due for an all voicemail. Podcasts soon i feel like no we've got leave of like screwing around that i'm i'm ready for. We put in an ask to a big name this week for an interview and we haven't heard back but once you do that it's almost just like until we get the yes. I can't think about interviewing anybody else. So i would just say mentally. Prepare yourself that maybe we're not going to interview till we hear back from big name who it is. It's like reasonable to think we will hear back at some point. It's not like unaccessible big name. You know michael jordan or something. But it's our michael jordan. It's our michael jordan. So that to him. That's who is going to reach to next. let's shoot. let's go step down. Yeah ask him this person bigger than michael jordan. Let's see if he's available shoot shoot for the moon land above among the stars whatever they say yeah something like that. Yeah okay those are two different. You're saying two different two different thing but reminds me. Let me read a quote for my inspirational quote. Book valence of wow hello.

Sports? with Katie Nolan

Chicken Little

"Either way mr davis your house is staring at me. And i ask you to please stop. It's evil is directly into flow battle scars. Welcome to sports podcast. That ends the question mark but starts with question. I am your esteemed host. Catherine beth nolan. He's travis she's christina in. This is today's question. Hi katie travis and christina. Dust is melissa calling in from boston. And today is september first. And the reason that i mentioned the date is because i'm starting to see people decorate for halloween and or the fall so my question is when is the right time to decorate for halloween or just seasonal fall. I looked it up. And today is the meteorological fall. Which i guess is apparently september october november but the fall equinoxes is september. Twenty second hasn't happened yet and then obviously halloween. Is that the end of october short. So what they what's the right time. What do you go by So thank you guys so much for answering my question i love you and i need it and i hope you have a great day and a great fall i think melissa i love you and i mean at first of all second of all your voice is like a delightful ray of sunshine shooter shown nice third of all you are definitely like the president of your local chapter of the pumpkin spice appreciation committee. I can just tell. I know it and you know what i appreciate that about you. We've turned pumpkin spice into a punchline in the last few years but i do think people with genuine pumpkin spice fall passion. I'm into that. That energy harmonizes with mine. I i'm going to try this new apple thing that starbucks house because that sounds more up my alley but i don't take anything away from those of us who love pumpkin spice and then your question i just wanna say thank you for thinking that i have a any sort of information like. I'm a resource to let you know. When you're supposed to decorate your. I think there are still some christmas decorations here at my house. I didn't what september blended into. Yeah when you said it was september. First i gasped. I thought we were still in june. I have no idea where we do. You have the christmas lights above your bed that you had up there. And and and the only reason i hesitate there is because they've started to fall off and i haven't paid any attention to them but they're definitely still piled there yet. It's i would say. September first sounds right to me. I don't. I hear a lot about the equinox. But i used to work at one and so i don't really acknowledge its existence anymore. It's a really trying time for me. Selling people expensive gym memberships. That i knew they couldn't afford still kind of a mark on my soul so i don't acknowledge the tunnel equinox But you know it still comes and goes. It would be too late to decorate for fall at the time of the equinox september. First sounds right. Once back to school stuff starts happening. That feels right. It used to be the vm. As when the vietnamese were on. I knew summer was over. I don't know if that's still the case. I don't know if they air at the same time anymore. But i remember that being like man we just had all that summer and now the night that i wanna stay up late. I'm in school and i can't. It's a vivid childhood memory. Mtv used to be a pretty big cultural force kids know that sounds crazy looking at them. Now but They were important to us shutout. Kurt loader september twelfth viva's a yup all right decker that's decorate. You heard it here first. It's time to decorate for fall or halloween on the vm. It should be done by. Vme's at your due date. So i i think she's in my opinion there. There's two answers here. You can start decorating for fall now. Yes halloween you need to way. I agree. I think i agree with you. I think fall you can start so you disagree with katie. Hold on katie's yes well. Well i don't know what what katy officially said. I know that i agree with you. By saying you can decorate for fall like september. I that seems appropriate. But i better not see how decorations until the first of october. Because why would we put us. You want your tonight a little aggressive but hunkin well decorated and a jack-o-lanterns declaration. May maybe that's what how do we. How do we separate. That's all i'm asking you. Pumpkins is yesterday. So i will say yesterday being tuesday. Today's wednesday right. Yeah yesterday being tuesday. I got my nails done with grammy. Like we shout and shout out like a pale pink to this. Weekend's you gotta you gotta go neutral. You know labor day wedding. Oh yeah big labor day wedding weekend and now you've said that before well. It was a well. It's not my wedding. So i didn't. It's not god. I'd say we're not my wedding so i didn't pick date That's where katie. I will meet for the first time. No my what replied But yes yesterday. After i got my nails died and grammy said oh. I have something free in my car and i said oh. Why did i forget something at your house. Bought me no she. I wish she bought me with kid. Like a little decorative. Pumpkin into other warms. My heart she is so precious. She while i was at home goods the other day i saw this pumpkin. I saw pot homegoods. Now well there. It's a fake pumpkin. Oh because she said. I wanted you to have a decorative pumpkin because i famously do not decorate for any holiday ever So she said. I bet your apartment can use decorations and i figured i would get you this and i really do. It is the single decoration. That i have. It is now sitting on my kitchen table among all the other crap that setting up there but we have a pumpkin in the middle of the table. Thank you growing. So i would say go ahead throw up decorations now. I just did as of last night. When can cobwebs go up october. First that's halloween. You're saying october. Fathallah wayne. I don't associated cobwebs with fall who i associate cobwebs with. Halloween is macabre around. Yeah my club always true but maybe they could show look at things are macab right now. I think you can start decorating for halloween last year. I i don't see an issue with decorating for halloween. A tiny little bit early. Because i don't like yeah. Yeah i think it's just because i don't like halloween that i'm like i don't. I don't have an appreciation for the decor like i do for christmas christmas. Throw the lights up and have the tree up all year long. I think it's just because i don't like scary things and i don't appreciate halloween like a lot of people do that. I don't wanna see the decorations. So i think maybe my opinion is a little bit here because i just don't like the decorations but hey if you wanna throw up now. Whatever makes you happy. I just think you should wait until month that it celebrated pushes garland of leaves that are colored different colors around your porch. I'm just describing what my mom used to do. Mama go ham on halloween easter replaced. All my mom's got scarecrows in the have the lights on our porch aired. Replace with black and orange light bulbs i remember that being the coolest thing this so cool tim. Legler goes all out. Yeah how do you know that They they sent a letter. Sent billy up there one year for holiday like the halloween show. 'cause he'd he takes frightened scaring kids. I don't like those big inflatable things either holiday. If you've got a big cauldron with a witch add it in your front yard. It's like what i like it. Yeah you're right. Appreciate level people go to later. Yeah yeah but sometimes in the creepy muse scared. There's been a honest. There has to be cohesive theme. You can't just throw up like two or three inflatables on your yard and be like a decorated for halloween like what. how is the ghost. Interacting with the goblin. They don't seem to be acknowledging each other's you can't have santa over the nativity scene. That gets very confusing for me. I don't know just have a little cohesiveness in your decorations. Melissa and now that's a i feel like we've really answered this question as we are the leading authority sports podcasting for decorating your home You may think we're not experts but you're you're domin wrong. We are and look at all those good answers. That wasn't you melissa. You're not wrong. I was talking to the alleged hypothetical person. If you have a question about cooking cleaning other things. I'm really good at numbers. Eight six zero five zero six five five seven one. Hi guys. I have to be honest. I'm moody d today. I am very good reason. I am moody myrtle sick. It is it is. I'll save you the it's like a hot lava coming out of both sides of her. I mean all over the place and then there's just things happening in the news and then there we're in the middle of pandemic and then i read that like people were going to get rid of a hive of murdered hornets and then they got attacked by them. Which sounds like you know a plague of its own. Everything feels bad in scary today and that's just energy. I'm bringing just wanted to acknowledge that off top. So that if at any point you're like what's up with katie. That is that is. What's the world is up with. Katie today. and she's just going through it but she's here on podcast share. She's a little late because their vet doesn't take appointments but then it kind does take appointments and it gets really weird about what time you have to be there and then it kind of keeps you there for a little bit longer but you know what the vet loved myrtle. The vet said choose the sweetest dog in the world which that that has met a lot of dogs so it was very redeeming for me. But something shocking. The highlight of my day. Well i mean. I just think it's nice to have your worldview confirmed by your vet that like your dog is kind of special and brings a very special loving energy into rooms that she's in and then just me telling people that yeah poop that she ate and then puked i don't know man. Donahue are disgusting but also the sweetest things in the world and she spent a long morning shouts to dan who Cleaned most of it and Shouts to that lack of sense of smell because it came in rather. I gotta believe that like that is just like i. It's gotta be able to most important thing. Yeah i was gonna say that is super power in this situation. It is like if i had no sense of smell perfectly fine cleaning up all of that. He was like look. I'm glad you weren't awake for. He's like because. I can't smell anything and it was. It was tough for me. He's like i gagged he would have Lost it was like cool sick. Look over at her and she's just like how she's like a martin like crazy thing is she can't fit in our bed with us. It's a queen and like we know we wish we had a king but we just don't at this juncture and if it working i think she could sleep with us but there's just too much flipping and flopping and dance too tall for her to sleep in there with us and last night we fell asleep with her in the bed and we were like. Maybe we'll see if this works and then the midnight. I woke up and like okay. It's not working. She keeps kicking dance. I moved her into her kennel and then in the morning when she was crying and dan woke up. She had Pooped all over her kennel. So i'm like what are the odds. Imagine if she had been in the bed. Oh no. I think. I would've called older loud. Deputy allow if i woke up q. And was covered in dogs. Hot would i would that be. Could i do think i could just say that like hey. My dog pooped on me. I'm gonna take day. I'm gonna take a week. Go would just sign off the rest of the week. That's that's right so silver lining. She didn't do it on me but very sick and it just makes me sad because you don't want your dog to feel sick. you know but she does. There's not there's not a lot you can do. I just keep telling her that she's really special and she's doing a great job and hopefully and she'll be okay eventually. We should understand me. Yeah the vet was so chill about it. I was like okay. Here's exact times that she did exact things he did and here is the amount of time between times that she was like. I'm sure she's okay. Like oh okay do you guys. Are you aware of what happens when you google the things i just said because it's the opposite of what you just said. Which is that fine. Okay yeah it to every time. I google it. It's like oh that's what's up your dogs dying. But she's not she's okay but chicken little chicken little today. The sky is falling. That's actually the first roll ever played in kindergarten in a play. Maybe it was even pre k. I was chicken little. And i feel like that. Little tiny chicken today. i never was play christina. Were you I don't remember now. I don't think so. I don't remember ever be your kids so bad. But i wasn't good at any of it and so they were like no and now I was in the choir. When i was little because i wanted to be a singer and that is a failed career. I mean i feel like when you're in middle school. Everybody had that thought. Like i was going to go up to be mariah carey christina aguilera. I just knew it. I just news. Then you know things life gets in the way but that's definitely my destiny was definitely where i was headed. What about you travis. Or you the voice of your generation. No i can't sing. I can't act. I never wanted any of that. Triple threat never one of my life. Do you want travis. I don't know to be able to smile and have it not say thirty years to not. Who's a research things. I'll go on in a mike. You know trying to research. Make sure that. I'm like okay. And everything he look bad and mike. I think i'm dying. You know like our semi mouth is gonna fall off cool. how do you just sluggish. Oh just because. I can't like eat. Any you like nutrients good food. I wasn't sleeping well. What was that thing. The tech bros. Made up like two years ago where it was like. Don't have time to eat drink. This and then they named it soil which made a lot of people who were familiar with the movie. Go you have it. So here's the problem. Though with even by drinking things. I needed to be like an escort bottle because it just off on this podcast. How dare you I was going to but it was. Just what the weather today. I was gonna go to mcdonald's and get chicken nuggets and then cut them up like get something i've had. Yesterday i went to a place to get some donuts. Not gonna say their name They they call munchkins like rhythm apart cycle. You like a little bird little bird and it's getting better but like the scab on the outside it like you know when you're talking smile it starts to like wanna break open you should drink insurer. And it's in the worst location. He should drink ensure when i got hit in the face with a with a line drive. I had to drink insurer for a week. It was what is that breakfast. Think it's for. I don't know if this is true. I thought it was for older. People like a meal. Boosts to give nutrients and stuff but it's in liquid form so it's like insure desert. Yeah it's not. I wouldn't call it the d. word i would say it's like a no. I'm was quoting khania. Oh of course the wire as if we would pick up on that my bad. That's my bad my bad. I haven't listened to through the wire and in a minute. Insure for dinner. You didn't say it in the right inflection. The emphasis was on the wrong head. I couldn't imagine if i like broke my jaw like not being able to like eat. Anything and everything. You're like jaws wired shut. Has i might see my cousin. Had that happened. Where she i forget. What exactly happened is a softball. Injury saw fall related injury. I think it was from what i remember. I was young when it happened But from what. I remember She was standing behind home plate and it was practiced but her teammate. Like was messing around and the bat came like she flung the bat backwards and at clutter you. We had interest withrow kershaw. Yup broke her jaw. I remember her having like her. It wasn't for a very long time. But she had her jaw wired in place because it has to heal properly they have to lake reset your jaw But it was terrible. She couldn't talk. She couldn't eat anything properly. She needed to be like fed through a tube. Like this is hair. Nash potatoes jazz. I used to eat those country. Crock mashed potato mashed potatoes like three loss. Four days now Bad i've been. I've been making a lot of like a root beer. Floats airline love a root beer float. Shout out to a root beer float an oldie but a goodie a classic opposite of shoutout to a coke float. Something that. I think people kept trying to make happen but just was not working for me all right so i will omit the one i've been have and this is a coke. Zero zero floater using fat free ice cream briars ice cream but only going pop. I have my houses for my check and cokes. And so let's have broken at least here at least you're doing with what you have. I mean the doctor the vet said to me just feed her bland food like chicken and rice and then she just kind of looked at me. And then i looked at her. She looked at me and she goes. Or i can give you food can that i have here and i was like. Oh i schedule. I don't even cook for myself. You'll meet a cook for my dog. Which honestly. I'm probably going to the only thing that could motivate me to make chicken and rice Would be 'cause my little baby hurdle needs it but it is funny that when my dog is sick i feed her. The diet that the A former Suit at espn shadow. Glenn jacobs used to eat day for lunch. He would just eat boiled chicken with rice. And you have a sick dogs Diet you know back shutout glenn all right joy to eat this chicken and rice. It's like the default meal for men trying to like cook and be healthy and it's like our air me just you can't see them. Let me go the easiest route chicken and rice. That'll work well. It's a staple you know who doesn't love larry chain. Yeah like you're trying to prep like one for the week. Be simplest thing to make chicken and right. We're if you're a woman or if you're not quite frankly. I used it the only my specialty mule. When i was in new york city with zero money was i would buy those little one minute. Brown rice cups chop up another kado. Which i was using like a quarter of kado per bowl of this because avocados were expensive and again i was broke. My cereal came bags. And then i would put chicken and black beans brown rice from the microwave avocados black beans and chicken and it was delicious. I felt so fancy. Sometimes you can weirdly. Toss a little all three dollars yet. Do whatever you gotta do. The avocado itself was three dollars. Honestly get like the nora sides are so surface. Don't you have to still cook. Those though aren't though still on a stove top nope in the microwave. Ooh girl technology is crazy in it. Moves so fast I watched a documentary yesterday. While we're still here in friendly banter. I just want to say it was very. It was very heavy. But it's not new. I don't think but it was called rewind. I watched it on amazon. I think on amazon prime and it was one of the most like i. Don't know interesting documentaries. I've ever watched it's very heavy again. It's it's about a kid who experienced sexual abuse as a child and he's going through his home movies and talking about it. But i don't know it's if it's something you can handle. I can't recommend it enough. It was Just fascinating To just watch like see a slice of someone's life like that a life that you all hope that you and the people you love will never have to experience but that some people still do to be able to get insight into. That was a really really interesting. So i don't know random movie recommendation from me but not even a with my chest recommendation. Because i understand. It's probably pretty tough to watch. But it's that's where. I'm at again reading a lot of kirkegaard Feeling like the world is ending searching for purpose. That's the the brand of katie nolan. That we get today. So i could pretend to be the other one but it would not be very convincing because like i said i wanted to be a theater kid but it never stuck off very good actress. Is it just me or documentaries. Like the new cool. I feel like there's doctorates nonsense. Good i i never thought i would be but why big recently little they would show us the most boring. I don't like this happened. Then this happened or maybe. I'm just remembering it wrong and with my adult brain and maybe we just didn't understand the depth of what they were trying to say but the they just didn't documentaries. You're so well made now. So i love them. Are you pro. doc travis. what's the last docu What's the latest one thing. Because right before i watched rewind just to buy you some time i watched one called the woman. Who wasn't there about a very famous woman who survived nine eleven. Had this crazy story enjoying like became the head of just was just about to watch that. It was going to widen their reports of it. I'll be honest ahead on the background. While i was doing other stuff and by other stuff. I mean like a crossword puzzle. Because it's really popping off over here for me very active social life So i think i missed a few by my own Not paying attention nece but there was a a it. It was very fascinating to see the people in the Survivors group talking about her on camera before they found out that she lied. And then after. That was what. I was so fascinated but seeing as i had heard about. This one of my friends was talking about it and i was like that sounds fast. That's like the biggest lie. I think the moment they were talking about the anxiety she felt as she was trying starting to figure out that her line was about to be exposed. And i'm like. I can't even imagine i would be so. Oh my god this god. It's just like your whole everything. You're a bad this isn't good. You're a bad you might be a bad person which is always a terrible thing to have to consider so terrible that most people don't ever consider it. I don't know if it's the last one. I've watched by david foster off the record He's this award winning composer and producer. And you name the artists like he's worked with them. It was like an awesome. I want to say. I watched the i either watch that one and i watched one on quincy. Jones are watched one on quincy jones which then drove me to david. Foster wanna like it was it was unreal. Travis i think so too no key you play any instruments. We've done this now. I wish. I i wish i could play the piano. What do you love so much about. Music well one thing is with music is it. Can it can impact your life like one song can change how you feel very few things out there like i mean religion obviously something but like music as like three minutes of a song can and patch your life. And i don't know as you can always find something to relate your like from a song like ninety nine percent of song might not relate to you but you can find like one little piece. Yeah so you can identify with an can kind of just get through things like you know. You're sad it can make you happy. You can just the. I think music is very powerful. I think you're right. This fascinates me a question. I've been mulling over my head recently when you listen to music. How do you listen to it. Do you listen to playlists. Do you listen to playlists by other people. Your own playlists g. Listen to like what i do is. I'll put my music. I'll go to songs. Hit shuffle and i'll just skip. I mean i'll skip sometimes if it's songs in. Why do i have this on my ipod. Mostly whenever hamilton comes on out of context. And like i'm not going to this. I feel really bad. How often. I skip songs from the hamilton soundtrack. But i just do random shuffle. But i'm like. I bet some people are like. Oh i click on the songs i want and i make a playlist dan. Does this really cool thing. Where every month. He makes a playlist of the songs that have just like entered his consciousness new names it after the month and then he listens to it for a month. I've done something similar. Where i on my spotify i have playlist that are labeled Either the apartment. I was living in the time period. I was going through. Like i have a Late night flight. One when i would take red is from la back home To connecticut so i had like a late night flight playlist so that was like my la playlist. That i had one. When i moved to national it was called like national fall Because i was really sad. Boom like a bunch of really sad songs. And i just i moved to nashville And also when i had gotten like reintroduced to country music and like better country music than what i had ever really listened to because now i'm living in the heart of it So it's a bunch of like stages of life. So i think i i also have like i've playlist like that. Where sometimes like when. I'm working out or running errands or something. I'll throw on the playlist of a mood or like one of my previous life periods. And i'm like. Wow what was i going through. I had this song on there where it will bring back like emotions or like memo yet. What i went through during that period. When i made that playlist I love making playlists. But i would say i'm more so enjoy listening to play made by other people because i like hearing what other people compile into a place and i love like discovering new music so like if i if you've made a playlist and i know that i like the type of music you listen to. I'll listen to your playlist. Because i want to hear what what songs you have that i don't. Yeah because it's like what have you encountered in collected person with similar tastes to me and like you know we all have ways that we run into things so it's like if you like stuff that i like. Then let me hear all the songs that you like. Because maybe yeah. Those songs haven't crossed my path yet. But yeah i get that. So high-school college. When i had an ipod. I would have a bunch of different ipod. Talk about the music. I listen to on it does that. Make me an old edmund. Like don't have that on my ipod. I didn't want to correct you. It just doesn't it makes you sound like an old the people who don't want highway we all had ipods. Yeah on my ipod shuffle. Let me loan. But now i use pandora so obviously there is no like. I can't cure it my dealers so i pick artists the like and then look so if i listen to music going to bed i usually um pick phil. Vassar is a country singer. Songwriter is more like in the nineties. Bell like he plays the piano so like his music is yes lamar soothing. And then so obviously you're gonna get song similar to that like i love their church but the last thing i need to go to bed is for him to play snorkel smoke and now i'm already like now you're wired he can't be like red solo cup. You know that's not going to get your sleep trying to get that i get the or if you drink enough out of a red solo cup you can just go to sleep right there into your oscillating fan. You know. I mean that's also alleged option right cool. That was a random thing about music and anyone else have. What what do you mean was a nice. I didn't say that. I liked it. And that i was happy about it. I'm devastated that that happened to you. That fan is going to hear from me. I'm not a fan of that fan. You guys did you do anything interesting since we talked to each other like is your dog throwing up and also pooping allot or is that. Just just men's jesse or you mashed potatoes and coke floats. Mashed potatoes and coke. Floats the travis. Rock hold story there. We go this all counted as your mental health update. I have not looked at this dock as much as i should. It's been a whirlwind of sad and mad and dark and gloomy here. But travis can tell you. What's today on the podcast. Came newton no longer with the patriots. Who who knew. When did that. Bill bill chick some interesting comments on a govett Bryson de shambo. Don't see that story is. I can't wait to talk about We have more mets drama and like theories series and dumped drama I prefer the dumb. But i guess we'll get to both And then of course jeopardy. God there's more. Deputy and i'm through here mark davis house. We're gonna talk about mark dame's house looks like a spaceship spaceship airport. So that's neat but first before we get to all that. Today's podcast is brought to you by gatorade. Travis what how. Do you want me to tell the people though gatorade the substitute teacher but you're trying to be cool. We have absolutely done this recently. As it's i wish we get visual elements of this podcast for our listeners. Just going to do a dumb impersonation for the fifteenth time about a sports drink to a guy who's lip is bleeding. Okay then how about this. I'm in the head space. I'm in the head space unless this is our only add. Read an newest. Whatever it is. You're about to say. I was gonna change it up and Maybe it is the The head football coach. That is a teacher and it's the last appeared in the period before the big game. He doesn't care about any against too much character development for me kind of method. And i've never met this person and so on and back to the cool substitute teacher. Hey guys ta. What's up y'all on your. I know i'm not your teacher but for today. I'm your teacher so i'm just kinda like cool. Teach you know you can just call me teach. Gatorade knows there are many pass to greatness guys. Take your seats. Yeah yeah it's totally chill. Just grab a seat How you get there is up to you. Sometimes you got grinded out you know. Sometimes you gotta get up early and put in the work even when you're not even hey guys could eat the chatter down. Okay 'cause Gatorade knows you need to get up early and in the work. Even when you're not feeling one hunted you know when you can't keep it one hunted. Oh no fun guys so. Sometimes it takes staying focused on a goal knowing where you want to be an that. You'll have to pour everything in to get there and where there is now again. Is our seats. Can we get two hours seats. They do so much. We've been in class for five minutes now and so sitting down should be pretty easy. I love that. Is that a spit ball. That's cool i see. The technology has advanced. Since i last made those are guys other times you just need to dig deep and show some guts be brave. Never let anything stand in the way of what you can accomplish. Except i am going to stand in the way of of you accomplishing passing those notes. Okay guys honestly. If you just let me get through this. I'll let you spend the rest of the class with your head down in your desk like taken an app. Get through. Honestly guys okay. I wanna be your friend. But you're about to a very different teach and that teach is mean teach right so let me just finish the ad read. Thanks sometimes there are days you have to get in the gym gets and gains. Okay put it in all the reps and get strongly today but whatever path you take to greatness and i sure can tell your all on it. Gatorade there to help feel the journal because greatness starts with g. honestly whatever you want. I'm gonna go. I quit boom. 'wow get do they. Give out awards for that kind of stuff. Because i think that might have been award. Winning also met it. Thank you could you. What's cove it. are you ducking ono. You're getting something What happened with so cans. Not on the pats anymore released him on tuesday in a stunning move. Really share with now The smack jones's team who jones who Cam newton Week ago honestly time flat circle between a week or two weeks ago. Somewhere in that time range got there was a miscommunication a much interrogated but never clarified miscommunication. That he went somewhere on an approved trip but then didn't get a test from the right place or something and what was exposed in all of this was essentially that cam newton must not be vaccinated because he was being held to the rules that the nfl has put in place for unvaccinated players because again this year the nfl instituted rules that are different vaccinated and unvaccinated players said decision that they made and now we are dealing with the consequences of that bill. Belichick has gone out of his way. Now especially in light of the urban meyer situation to say that. It's not the reason that cam newton was cut. He elaborated on those comments to say things. I imagine we're getting to later in the dock that aren't super But i think that it look. I am so sick of tiptoeing around talking about vaccines. It is something that i couldn't have thought more passionately against. When i was a child you would have not met a single other person who was more against a vaccine than me. Because i was scared of it because i'm afraid of needles because my body does not like it. I tried to find every excuse in the book to knock it vaccines. You're not anti vaccine shot like in a vitamin sure. But it they couldn't and that was explained to me and did i like it. No but did i do it yet. Because i had to go to school. It was required of me. I hated everything about it. I understand it's different from the reasons people are against it now. But it's very frustrating to me that it's like why i had to suck it up. We all have to suck it up. This is how this is how you have a society. This is how you have a civilization that survives that evolves that grows instead of just eating itself like this is what you have to do to preserve humanity which is supposed to be something that we care about. I love personal freedoms. I believe so much in personal freedoms this is not one of those situations. This is not a personal freedom situation. This is a if you're not getting vaccinated. The this this virus this pandemic will morph into variants. It will become worse. it will keep going. It will become resistant it will start to infect the it's it it is it just seems so logical and i get very very very frustrated. How much people. I dunno almost become too singularly focused on the politics of it. Because it's been incredibly politicized and it's been very very effective. I don't think that people who are sucked up in this narrative are dumb. I think they're just being sold a convincing story. And it's just very frustrating to me to sit like now. There's just don't say that he was fired because he wasn't vaccinated. Don't say but then on the other hand we're like wow a guy's not a real athlete if he doesn't play through an injury and endanger his health. We've got such a warped view on what people should and shouldn't give up or risk for football or for baseball or sports or their jobs. Just feel so disconnected to me from like caring about humanity about making sure that other people who don't have the same luxuries you'd do to keep yourself safe or to get yourself healthy once you become sick because there are people with easier access to healthcare then people than other people and a lot of times. It's those people who are making the creating this narrative that the whole thing bums me out. I'm so sick of talking about it. I'm so sick of thinking about it. I'm so sick of sickness this apartment. I'm sick of all of it. The one thing. I'll say with on the athletic side is we. We've heard some people come out and they're asked about if they're vaccinated and the one thing that i said i was willing to. I'm willing to listen to you and hear what your reasoning is. And then i will. Then you know kind of decide. But i never heard any athlete. Come out and give a reason that was like okay. Yeah that's the way point. It's like i wanna do my own research. I wanna learn more and it's like that's awesome now did you. Did you learn more. Tell me what you learned. And also when it's like i wanna do my own research research. Are you going to like i get that you you don't want to just make the team brings in people and you're supposed to make decision on the spot but me doing my own research in their c- you're putting off having to make a decision that you've decided it. It's i think we've said this before. It's a lot easier to not do something than it is to do something. And so when when what we need is to motivate people to do something. If you don't wanna do it you can kind of just make an excuse. And not do it and i think this is one of those things that's like when i see somebody just appear to be making an excuse to not do something they just really don't feel like doing. It frustrates me. Because it's like you know who didn't feel like doing it me. And i did it and i have trouble doing literally anything right now. Those are my cops the cops are. They're not mind but they're in my neighborhood. They're not falling you on the highway. The cops in your pocket. Yeah those are my cops Just you know the the one other thing that i did when like the for the vaccine is like i being discussed i was like i'd probably going to wait on this because at the time i was like kind of being a russian and then once i knew some people that got it then it was like okay. I'm good and now for the people that were like. I needed to be you know. Fda approved will. You've you've lost that boards. I know it just feels like everything has the ability to be. If it doesn't confirm the thing you thought then you can ignore it and it's so it's so defeating to me as a person that's like man. Words are powerful. If you can use them effectively you can you. Can you know communicate how much something means to you and it just. I'm starting to feel like that's not true. Because people still just log on and yell at me about hippo and i'm like what is anybody talking about. This is a sports story to say on the same network where for years people have echoed the phrase the best abilities availability to go on there. And say that if you're a backup quarterback which it seemed like cam had been deemed to be and you're not vaccinated then it's a bigger your then you have you might not. There's a bigger risk of you not having availability even if it's just because you'll have to quarantine for longer in a way that a vaccinated player wouldn't have to. It's not saying that vaccinated people can't get cova vid they can. That's why everybody needs to get vaccinated. It also lowers the Effect that covert has on your body. That's important that keeps people from dying. It's not a magical cure that makes the whole thing go away. It's a process but delaying that process is going to drag this for so long. And it's going to just keep having lasting effects on like generations of people millions and millions and millions of people have had their lives up ended by something and we have to start fixing it or it's going to spiral out of control. It's going to compound with other issues. I'm so tired who kim's on on the patriots anymore. i don't think he got cut. Because of either. But i think i don't think so either consideration is a terrible thing i know. That's i agree with you on that. Because i think that when i know i think you have this the dock when urban meyer was saying about good axioms yes so i think that i guess i'll save what i have to say about that when we get to it but basically i agree with you. I don't think you should be wronged for taking into consideration as to whether or not you're keeping players because your personal reasoning for whether or not you do or don't want to get vaccinated. Take that out of the equation. If you're unvaccinated you have a completely different set of rules which then impacts the team and the way we go about our business and so i don't think a coach or the entire south wrong for taking into consideration where it's like. Hey i'm not saying about you know shame on you for not doing it. I mean i be in my head but for you know. I'm not saying that you're wrong. I'm saying that because you've decided to not get vaccinated. You have an entirely different set of rules to follow. And that is now impacting. How do your job and how. I conduct my job and i understand why the nfl pa has to argue this or take up. I believe it was announced that they're investigating or around the urban meyer situation. I understand that because that's the nature of the relationship between the nfl and the nfl pa that everything is. They have to advocate for the players. Right there steward yet. This has cleared another other situations with a personal conduct policy. Like it's their job is to advocate for the players. I get that but it just feels like it isn't advocacy for the players to say that they should be. It's like this is ultimately about public health which includes the health of the players which includes the health and safety of this league and the people that the league is comprised of. It's just exhausting. Let's how many how many vaccine stories are in here. Three we get through three and then we never have to talk about it again over speed next so bill bell chocolates asked about it and he had this he said i would just point out that. I don't know what the number is. But the number of players coaches and staff members that have been affected by cove in this training. Camp who've been vaccinated is pretty high number. So i wouldn't lose sight of that and my favorite thing that i've seen so far was actually not for many of our peoples from rain twee. He goes Players that were helmets. Get concussion so should we stop wearing helmets arguments that if they were to wear less helmets that people would hit less hard. But there's also the argument that you don't wear pads so you don't get hurt you pads so the other guy doesn't get hurt which kind of relates to a vaccine situation. It's about giving. I hate it i. I've been running in these logical circles for a couple of days. As you learn the other one will speak fast. Pass the quake it saying that there are people who have been vaccinated. Who are getting sick. It is not the argument against vaccines that you think it is. That explains Variants and mutations and Which is explained by the fact that we have not achieved herd immunity. Which is something. We thought we'd be able to get to pretty easily. I also want to say shot up to the nba who's ninety nine percent vaccinated as a league while yep and then urban meyer is being in the jaguars reinvestigate because he sits under the fact of you know cova everyone. Everyone was considered about roster cuts. That was part of the considerations such as production. Let's start talking about this and also is he vaccinated or not. Can i say that. That was a decision maker. It was certainly inconsideration and this is what should've say it. But yeah this is what led the nfl pa to open the investigation. Which now he's come out and said that it wasn't the reason that cuts were made but it is funny to hear urban meyer college coach coming from a place where he had power and there was no union representing the athletes. And just say like. I'm pretty sure i'm not supposed to say this. Can i say this. And then you're like if it's a question once you're in the nfl. I think you're supposed to not say it. And then actually ask someone if you can say it. But i said this on hq today. The quiet part is getting confused with allowed part a lot lately to the point where It sure is confusing to a lot of people So urban meyer This is like when somebody that you disagree with makes a good point. And you're like okay. Yeah i know it's the worst. It's i good for you. Who you and. I both have stated our lack of love of her urban meyer chavis beckoning for us to keep going into poor and come on in. Get to the next story. Which i'm very intrigued about. So i will just say that it pains me to have agreed with urban meyer. Who i normally disagree with. Are you like the one that i put in. Or that's next okay. 'cause you say you that we're gonna talk. Mark davis. the owner. Right of the of the raiders is moving to vegas and he has bought a fourteen million dollar home. No i have not looked into the nevada. real estate market is since two thousand and nine when i was leaving college and considering moving out to las vegas with a friend of mine to like work for year bartending and just make money and save it and then figure out what i was going to do with my life. I didn't do that. But i thought about. It and part of the reason was because a friend of mine. And i could pay like four hundred dollars a month for rent and have an apartment with jacuzzi and like bedroom kitchen anna and just so much space for no money and so. I don't know i'm sure it's changed. What a volatile market. But he spent fourteen million dollars on this house and that is in the desert. I think gets you a lot and so pictures of this alleged house Or on the internet they were. I don't know if they were trending. But they sure crossed my timeline today and It's fifteen thousand square feet silver and black and it has a five thousand four hundred and twenty two square foot garage fi. Just google that now. It is square foot garage. That is just his house. Go home no. It looks like it. Looks like a an an aircraft carrier. Yeah it looks like a spaceship. What's the what's the ship. That the avengers us. Yeah i was just gonna say like hell is the word. I'm not enough of an expert in that world to know this but somebody's screaming at their podcast right now so i don't know that but i did just do a quick cost. Comparison living In new york. If i just do this number out here doesn't if you your salary is one hundred thousand new york you can have that same lifestyle and make fifty seven thousand and las vegas numbers made more sense to me because i bet that's a very interesting stat. I mean it's cost of living is basically fifty percent cheaper. Wow yeah this. Also if you zoom in on this one picture and christina google that they're only the one picture or their multiples now So i clicked on the first article. Let me just go to images i like. I assume this is a model. This is like a three d rendering. Yeah i mean. This is young rating off up so bland. It just looks like a bad resort. That like he just looks like yeah. It looks like totally uninviting business resort like it doesn't look fun. It looks cold and unappealing but the second year look at the pool. The pools have a pool and not look fun. Well on building behind it. there's just something dystopia and when you think about the zoomed out on this photo a little bit further and it's just this palace. In the midst of desert it's chance like a feels incredibly opulent to have a pool that has little pools inside of it in the midst of a desert. It doesn't as easily the coolest part of the whole thing but the building itself is giving me very big darth vader vibes Which is like it could turn into a jeep or it could turn into a giant Robot that can attack godzilla if need be yes. It's transformer house is that what is under. Is this like a club underneath. Like what is underneath that i love others smarter shop door his house does he not have one. No it's served. Haircut is pretty bad now. Is that aside pool or those side pools on the left and right because it looks like there's areas where there's lounge chairs in what appears to be and maybe i'm making this up but it looks like ankle deep water that a chair a lounge chairs sitting in which would be the most ideal sunning situation where you're just like laying there and then you can kinda scoop some warm water because it's shallow enough. I mean that's a cool idea. Mark davis. I'll give you that but that's literally all i'm going to give you. He's he also needs and maybe is just not going to be in the hotel by the cabana areas. He needs like some Water misters because it's going to get hot out there. So if you're sitting outside the pool lake. I mean i don't think he also got all around the outside you'll see. His pool has has a fountain around it yet. And he's got tiny spitting walk a moat. Yeah his his pool has a moat are right. Maybe you're right. Maybe that's marble and those are statues. I thought those were a little water. Bubbler thing no. I think those are little water. Bubbler things inside of the moat. That goes around the pool. Either way mr staring at me. And i'd ask it to please stop it's evil is in. Its looking directly into really does have evil is have you stare directly at it like i feel like something. Bad's gonna happen like it's like. Don't look in the i kinda thing. I don't think i have like a design aesthetic. i think i'm pretty basic. But i think the older i get the more i'm like. I don't think. I want my house to look like a spaceship. I mean it's cool. I don't mind staying in a hotel. That's got really modern style. But i don't think from my house i want it look so cold. It looks so. I've thought long and hard about this because i love interior design. I love going on youtube. And when i hit the gym hard and go on youtube i find myself in a rabbit hole of watching anywhere from like an affordable home all the way up to like a multibillion dollar you know something i'll never be able to afford And i've thought really long and hard. About what. Ideally my dream home would be and even if i had expendable money like that. I don't think. I don't think that's my aesthetic. Either i don't. I love being cozy and that house is far from cozy. Okay information. He bought this. He bought the slot. I six million last summer his neighbor. Okay is gene simmons. How far it's like his neighbor. How far away. Seven miles leg. Yeah i was gonna say how many miles away is. The neighbor took a helicopter nice. I don't i know. I know warning warning. I'm about to get sad again but it's just harder the more on this earth to watch people. Just be like yeah. I got the money to fix that. And then watch people that are like. I could never even dream to have the money to fix that. Just it's a lot but good for you. It's today's episode name good for you. Happy housewarming with yeah. Let's make sure we send you gotta like a a go fund me for a house you have a registry. Can we send you a gift. One send for a how how out lars l. on allies to anyone other than a huge mark davis fan. And also if you're out there and you're a huge mark davis fan. Please call in numbers eight six. Oh five oh six. Five five seven one and that's right. I did just do that for memory. Was about to say why. You're stan i need to hear from you. I need to know why. I need to know what it is. Did it start ironic and become real. Because i get that rob ryan but it's still. I just need to know. I do so. Please let me know. That's mark davis. Is house folks. How you do a topic on a podcast. What else grayson de fan. Both lame brooks kept. God do not like each other travis. Are we on side. Because i haven't paid full attention to this. I think originally. I was on team kepco and now i think i'm on team the both of you just handle this. Exactly i've been team brooks from the jump. I m hearing hipster name his first three albums or don't bricks kept cut. What's the origin. Story of this It starts with pace of play. I believe is the deal is where i started and that was how though i don't know because if you're giving us beef as much credit as i think may be proving it deserves. You could say that. This was the origin story of bryson dish. Shambo z- I don't wanna say glow up. But i also don't want to say beef up so i'm gonna say say honestly our considering down membership iron palace Yeah clint boats and banging isn't he. Why because brooks kapka came back in was kinda was the is is muslim and then bracing into shambo was like i'm gonna be the muscle guy. Yes a was always been yemen. A dozen johnston always big into working out and then bryson start doing that. And yes and now and then pay supply either way what i can tell you is that this seems remarkable. Wait what hold on Two thousand nineteen pace of play was brought to many years for this to be going on. You know what this this gives very much you know bryson is the younger brother and brooks is like i didn't i and now you wanna do it. Mom cantero care h. I felt bad about saying it. But i was like this. Feels like you called mom. and so. here's where we're at. So so you'll remember that there is like a video that leaked of of brooks doing an interview and bryson walking by and brooks like rolling his eyes at him and then people started yelling brooke at bryson at one tournament. He got really mad at them and told them he was going to get them kicked out. I think allegedly at another tournament. He did get people removed that were yelling at him. And then all so. When i started brooks was not there brooks posted a video on social media with one of his sponsors In like hinted at it in about fans kicked out and did some promotional thing where they sent product To fan so he was kind of egging it on and then but then brooks see them. Bryson said like no actually. I'm like not mad. Look i'm not even mad at all. Actually think it's funny. Actually which is exactly what you say when you're mad online and if you've ever seen online this is actually really diagnose. Actually i think this is absolutely hilarious and the noise you. That's me crying. It's actually laughing so you're wrong and i'm fine with it. And then so. So now the commissioner of the pga tour or is it the president. I think it's commissioned reject commissioner j monahan. We'll just call him bomb because this is exactly mom mom stepdad. Yeah hey mama and basically said that. It's really disrespectful. And it won't be tolerated from fans and that they could risk facing expulsion for again saying brooke see when bryson dish shampoos golfing so it feels like this is what christina was talking about it feels like bryson to shambo was like you guys better stop it. I'm gonna tell my mom and then my mom's going to tell your mom and then you're gonna be in big trouble. It sounds like what are cast. Say when i'm getting shot a lot in war zone. Where i'm like guys. My mom said you have to stop in. I'm on my mommy and it just feels silly to me that he's doing that so publicly but to each his own. He's not mad. Actually he thinks it's very funny. And even a couple of golfers made fun of lee. Westwood's like i've been called lumpy use the clark among other names that i can't mention on off of for the last twenty five years and now you bring a ruslan james. Han said calling bryson anything but his real name. We'll get you thrown out of a golf tournament. So if one of you call me kevin nod danny lear Sangmu bay. we're going to have real problems. It's just. I mean here's not to again. Make this about me. But for years i feel like people have been telling women on the internet or people of color on the internet to like. Who cares about your twitter applies. Just ignore them. You have to just ignore them. Why do you read them. Why do you give them a platform. And then somebody calls bryson dish shambo brooks and is in and people are like. That's mean you can't do that and we'll kick you back. Say you're going to be allowing there anymore. call me broke. see if you call me brooke. I'm like this is nice. That you're calling me is than you know. I'm having a pretty good day. People call me mina. Kimes on the internet. And i'm just like i'll take the compliment aren't even it's fine. It's fine to me. yes. I am please. I would love to pretend. I was for a day just a day but anyway golf. I clinton yates made a really good point today on highly questionable sometimes the days that i do. Hq by the time we do the podcast recapping. What happened. This is the most internet's i leading a hq recap but clinton doing this thing where they wanna be viral. They wanna be you know attract a younger audience and have cool stars and then they want they also want to not like have the repercussions of like this is what happens. You truly people that come to your you get dumb petty drama and you're not handling it in a way that's going to mitigate it because you know what was his name jay jay mama han just google. The streisand effect like brooks is going to be the most commonly said thing at golf tournaments moving forward. Aren't they paired together for the writers ryder's cup called. No they're going to their beef us. Either they're not going to put them together no way. But here's the thing. Like i get that bryce and may not like it but it's bringing more viewers and more viewers means more money for you and other golfers embrace this lean into it the differences cup. Gaza is built for this Burkes is not built for this No he's he's the kid who got pushed on the playground and it's not fair. My mom said you have to let you play on a breaks out. Is the energy if i could give you some advice. It only hurts. If you're not examining what it is about it that bothers you so much like just sit down for a second. It'd be like why does it bother me so so much. When is there truth to mockery. Answer is and what it is about it that bothers you and then you can start to make it bother you less because you'll understand what what sore spot it's pushing on because clearly it's pushing on a sore spot for you but like this band aid of a solution is making you look like you're incredibly sensitive about something that isn't that means so like i know it stinks but examine it and figure it out because if you can figure that out and then kind of turn it back around like when your parents tried to explain to you when you were younger that if you ignored your bullies it would make them more mad because you just wouldn't be. It's all that all them with kindness. Self laugh at it be like this is don't tell us you're laughing at it literally laugh at it because when you're like i'm actually laughing and then people are getting banned from golf tournaments than i don't think you're actually laughing. I think you just want me to think that you are find out through get some sources find out what is gonna wear each day for the tournament colors and just tag the wedding. Sit in his see like funny about it. Handle the mockery. Yes it's just like. I don't know i don't know or talk to them about it and be like cases really starting upset me. It's really upsetting you. Be honest with the people in your life. But don't don't i'm actually laughing. The mets serious news. Out of the way i so we can then do the other news. Yeah so the gm. The acting gm was arrested for drunk driving. He refused to sobriety test. Believe refused a What's called breathalyzer but he failed a a field sobriety test. He was sleeping in his car at like four in the morning Nino here easily coming her. Wear on the night This is according to jeff passing night of the near metz zach. Scott was arrested for allegedly driving drunk. He was at the connecticut. Home of team owner steve cohen sources tell a fundraiser for the teams amazing mets foundation was being held at the house and the mets certainly are amazing and the mets say We were surprised and deeply disappointed to learn the swearing about his alleged. Dui like bro. Here's the team owners house getting drug Like maybe get an uber home and just watch out for fans. Yeah so that happened. But in thumbs-down gate it's thumbs up. Sorry i oh okay okay. How silly and so much easier. These stories are to talk about. Hobby by as and Francisco lynn door. We talked about this last podcast. Were giving thumbs down to mets fans and booing them and then when asked about it they were like look. They boo us. When we're bad when we're good. We boo them. They got it wrong. We hold them accountable and the nets ownership who clearly as aforementioned have their together told fans that it was mean and not cool or told the players that it was not cool to be mean to fans and the fans are just great top to bottom. They love everything about them. And they aren't to be criticized like that so then hobby by gets up to bat and it gets booed thumbs down and i will say one guy brought a sums a cut out of a thumbs down to the stadium and then he held it sideways. All that work yet one. Actually i ate choice. So i'm going to this guy's creative and he was letting them know that you know what the jury is still out on. What i think of you guys. I'm going to wait and see your performance today. And then i will give you. Are you part of mets ownership. Because you're giving way too much. Credit to mets fans are reading. But i've ever heard of the situation but sure. Let's pretend this guy was going to wait and see ben harvey by his on. First basis is in the ninth. He was the go ahead run and he scored from first base on a was it. A hard drive was a line drive in the infield either as bobble by the left fielder i know that but i think whatever he scored and then they showed fans and fans were giving them two thumbs up because he scored the winning run and i waited for hobby by his to jump up from his slide into the plate. And give a thumbs down to the fans and he didn't yet double middle fingers or even just one thumbs as you could go creatively and i just think. He deserves a lot of credit for ending the narrative there because he could have been like. Now you're giving the thumbs. Now i'm going to do. This could have just kept going just like look. Scored the runs were even now. Let's just chill out then. Their gm got question. Do we know if the fan with the signed and adjusted thumb. We don't but i i in the rose colored world that you live into. Let's just imagine. He flipped that frown upside down in everything or right side up or he thought hobbies by and everything was fine. Harvey should've went alex. Morgan just pinky out celebration teacup Speaking of women's soccer there's a lot of stuff going on in the nwf wfl. And i have been seeing it tangentially. But i have not given at the deep dive. It deserves because of my current mental state. And so i just wanna say very quickly that everyone should be following meglena. Hanh who i think wants to be on vacation but can't because so much is happening in like ownership and for an offices and stuff like that so read up on that. Follow meglena hand. She's great And hopefully my dumb brain will get to work on understanding it soon and we can talk about it. But we're not going to talk about it today because existentialism so back to back back to the mets. I guess how soon to the mets mark like. Use this to make money with thumbs down on shirts and stuff. I don't even care have lost the ability to care so that means it's time for us to talk about jeopardy because if there's anything i can always care about eight. Geo party was an exclamation point. What's the update. Also so mike is out as the of jeopardy but also wheel of fortune and before we get into jeopardy. I feel bad for wheel of fortune. Liza because this whole thing and guys the cuban another amazing show and we'll fortunes getting no luck at say jack I know that as he was necessarily crushing it. I think that's a position that could be filled. And actually let's just get into. It is being filled by friend of the podcast. Michael davies from embassy. Row who some of you may know. And why would you. It's okay if you don't was the technically executive producer of garbage time soon. Applause if you think i didn't send him a text away When i saw that he's in charge of jeopardy and wheel of fortune on an interim basis. He's got his own stuff going on. You may know as the host of one of the hosts part of a delightful a partnership called men in blazers. He is. I was just like hey. This show means a lot to me. I'm glad to see somebody that knows what they're doing in charge of it and i gave him the thumbs up so you know i just love how day like. They made a decision. They they thought they could get past it in the employees could like move on like it was. Yeah it was like in. What world did you think. Saying him. Being in the limelight. Finding out the skeletons in the closet and then he goes back to his normal day job. Where like all right forgetting we knew all of this in letting is it a lot of the behind the scenes stuff. People are trying to make it like he just said some bad stuff on a podcast once. It's not that it was indicative of his management style which is job we kind of saw behind the scenes that he was sketchy at his job. So i know it's really easy to just be like cancelled culture. Everybody said dumb stuff in their lives. But this doesn't feel like that to me and it feels like minutes. Could just because i'm very close to it. I consider myself very close to the show. It means a lot to me. And i read a lot about it. It just seems like we found out. This guy wasn't very good job and then they were like. Yeah but we're going to keep him on. That's the it's an institution that means a lot to america. I know that might seem trivial and stupid to you. But travis was talking about music earlier. I was like i think that's how i feel about tv. I've always loved tv. It's helped me learn about people and places and things. I wouldn't probably see on my own. Because i've always been a person who doesn't really leave their house. It's just kinda now. I'm enabled to really do that. Tv was like a gateway to world. That i didn't understand. It taught me about types of humor taught me empathy and jeopardy is ben around and unchanged for the most part for very long time. It's it's like a tradition a modern tradition and this person yet sacred to you person who didn't seem like he gave that much of it about it to be quite honest was in charge of it almost tried to make himself the host of it and it was just like hey get out of here. It wasn't like i'll dare you ever have a controversial take when you're trying to make a joke it was. Hey You you kind of meddled with process you are going stand like a questionable person. It wasn't like he tweeted something that should have been said but he did it when he was like twelve years old and is like it's coming back. He said this a few years ago. And you've just you couldn't ever position was the time it was the time back. Then it's like. Yeah yeah okay you. I understand the point. You're making things were different. You could get away with saying a lot more back than have you examined. Why now things. The culture doesn't appreciate do you. Have you spent time thinking about what has changed in society and not just that people yell at you now when you say do you understand the issues. People took with what you said or are you just like. Hey that was back then rica. Just honk woman's boob in the middle of a podcast and everybody would laugh. What are you have you processed. What it is people are trying to tell you understand. Why culturally where here now. What does it mean to you. What lessons have you learned. How specifically when did you realize that what the way you used to be was offensive or borderline harassment. When did tell me the story of when it clicked for you so that i can go allow. I recognize that journey. I'm not always perfect. But when i figure out that i was wrong about something i do really work hard to understand why we don't make that mistake again. But when you just say how was a different time back then then all you're telling me is that you're you're not really consciously. Yeah about the times are different. You didn't say. Hey dude. I screwed up. Here's exactly how. Here's what i've learned. I had a conversation with this person who opened my eyes to the fact that the yada yada. You're not it's like. tell me. Tell me when you learn so that people can watch learning moment instead of seeing that in a moment when you're being attacked for the a thing you said her thing you did that the only way to escape it is to just go. Hey was different back then not to mention you handle this ho search ethically bad to for most important her also search that we've had in recent memory there is if i remember being shocked that they were going to replace alex so you showed that clearly your motives are not in the right place so we're not clearly if you wanna give him any benefit of the doubt. It's like we're just saying i'm your your motives. Do not look clean so if you want me to believe that they are you have to show me a lot of people on the internet are trying to give the benefit of the doubt to all the wrong people when all it is is doubt you're allowed to be doubtful of people and ask them interrogate their motives and find out why they did it and make them answer to it but a lot of people are like you don't know you don't know when it's like i don't know that's why i'm asking and i need them to answer in and intern. If if i'm allowed to which you have the right to exactly what you said. Interrogate the motives of why you did this. Why you said that you know whatever it is. He has the opportunity to say. Look i made a mistake in. This is how. I've corrected myself but that that never happened and he never. There's no explanation for anything. Then it's like well. I don't really believe you then. I don't really think that you should be in the position that you are so not really sad to see him go. It just makes me sad like to have a tv to tv. Shows run by essentially a lot of overlap the same. These are very successful longstanding. tv shows. And if you're a wheel of fortune person that's good for you. I am jeopardy person. The messiah then have franchises like this fumble. So it's like fumbled at the goal line with. This is easy they had. There was unfortunately because of alex's illness there was time they had a chance to prepare for this happening. And then still it just was like what what you and then a mess and now there's all this controversy surrounding it which means that. There's going to be a lot of high expectations on whatever happens next and it just feels like this whole mess should have been avoided not just could because it could have but it absolutely should have. If for no other reason than like out of respect for alex. I know there's probably people listening to this being like it's a tv show lady get over it but the more i realize the impacted television is had on my life. The moral like this is something. We've always brushed off his trivial and stupid and yes a lot of times. It is but it's also just like a world window in your house. We put cool quality stuff on it. That makes people smarter and encourages curiosity. We can also put garbage on it and you can eat garbage every now and then but like this show. This should never have happened. You know it's more than a show to. And i'm not a fan of saturday night live but a lot of people are and that's that's jeopardy was something a staple that they used on their show. When you do something like that that shows how important something is. You're paying homage by making a funny skit about it transcended. Just you know what. It's original purpose was travis is take is brought to you by homage t shirt company that makes every shirt that he owns. He is desperate to get you guys to send him a t shirt so not paid for and i might get yelled at for it but you cannot believe that one and just say you missed it yet. Jeopardy's my sec. That's what i've learned. It just means more you know so upsets me but speaking of college note speaking of college ball. What speaking of products in even if your answer is now are we not allowed to talk about bishops. More oh i know there was i. Haven't i've one idea. No i've been told a single thing that we can't it's it's there's a lot of layers to it. Whenever i so deep i know whenever i see a story that no one else is talking about on our network i feel like it's probably a memo. That was sent to my espn email. That i can't get into. And so i try to but i mean that is a wild lay. What a story stole many layers. Let's get the just quickly. A team called bishop's more played. Img academy which is basically a all-star team for football is this. I can understand how the younger is. It is a high school leaving legitimate. Okay it's done in bradenton florida okay. played up in canton against the school called bishop's sycamore which is allegedly from columbus ohio. I'd never heard of it and during the broadcast A niche and. Tom loganville started hinting at one point. Basically the same like we background. We fact check these players. They are not d one recruits they. The roster's don't match up and that's what kind of set the radar often so every all these reporters are watching the game. Because i am. G is littered. i mean there. Is that their team. Probably has at least twenty teacher. Division one players and it comes out does bishops. More team played a game on friday The address for the school doesn't exist. The website looks more of like a blog Oh esa which is the governing body for ohio. High school sports they have not They won't accept them into their their. You know their club. They can't sit with club so they're not allowed to participate any like sanctioned events. They told us there's multiple layers this because at first on the broadcast looking at the clips. It was funny like purely funny because it felt like the they got one over on the system. They you know showed up and they weren't as organized and it was kind of like. How did anybody believe this was a real school. And then as sometimes happens. The narrative got a little deeper on the internet. And we found out that these kids weren't being treated allegedly some. The kids are of high school age to put rumors that some of them are like post. Grad kids yes some at the minded. Yuko there's so many layers to it and then he came out and said you know her for something like this. We outsource there's companies that come to us and say here we have these gains for you. They set it all lebanon. You know yes and so. This other company says we had no idea The head coach has been fired. And then i saw on twitter today. pulp apps of Dan patrick show so we reached out. They asked how much for the interview. And we're like you're not paying. And then they said they're not available in museum in one. One of the coaches was like on twitter. Basically trying to defend like yeah like. We're not volunteers. It's the problem is there's so many layers far. I probably have missed things. Yeah i feel the exact same way. Because i think i saw something that the coach was alleged to have been the one kind of running this. I don't necessarily want to call it a scam because again. I don't know enough about it stories that you're like i sure. Do wish this was just surface level funny instead of the part behind it but yeah instead of like this so yeah instead of all of the different pieces of information where you're like it's funny but now a while we're on this weird before it was bishop. Sycamore was another name and they got changed. And then what's actually helped them in this. Alleged scam is kogo has allowed them. Teams need games and they've made themselves available. I mean imagine having the idea of like. Hey what if we just made a fake school. What was that movie. Oh when they like created their almost college it was like a it was like it was something like a fake university southern something institute of technology because it was s-h-i-t but i can't remember the movie was oh i mean this this idea of creating a charter school. That's basically around squirt. That's not crazy. There's been a bunch Accepted yes i would. Yep this is why. I get so mad when people are like oh. Athletes can't celebrate like that in the end zone. Won't somebody think of the children. And it's like hey. Hey won't somebody think of the children that are genuinely playing and being exploited in this league for the financial benefit of older non children. Want somebody think of those children. Why are we focused on these little surface problems when it's like. How was this allowed to happen. And i n g also played them last year. You can't tell me that they did it. They said sick more is fantastic. Fake school limp. I mean that might be ninety percent of the reason for their success. I hear bishops sick. More and i'm like hey that sounds good prep school. There's also multiple schools in the columbus area. That have the word bishop. What they they did that so it would blending. I'm wondering if they did that at and you make it sound like a you know a private catholic school because ohio is littered with private catholic school. So it's easier to blend but where they screwed up was conning themselves on. Tv if they if they're not on tv like yes. Some people are like mickey. Do you know. I think eighteen two thousand eighteen years years. Oh my god. Let's say now. This has become impressive. Yeah this is But it's fine to take the subsidies screen but like if a niche and. Tom don't make those comments. I wonder if it's a story I'm sure it's like it's like you rob. You robbed the wrong bank. Should've stayed at your low level a terrible lesson but a lesson than the stick at your little like you know on the pop okay cool. I'm glad we did that but now let's get to college football story. Thank you for letting me do that. I was so worried that you were going to be like we. Can't they said we can't no. I wanted to avoid it. Just because of how many layers were. And i know that i bought it and Shout out to those kids. Let somebody to worry. Dion sanders Son of kids Gotta deal with a beats by jura ansa Brandon bass eter. The game has not played a game. He said yeah. Okay this coming in and well. That's awesome like that. Yes i mean. I feel like if there's ever of safe bet you're just like tian sandra's kid cool. You can absolutely sign him. I'm tracy if i have it in your how many followers he has. Its under real some of these kids and the amount of followers they on instagram. No that's another thing. I find wildly impressive. Where nowadays because so many younger kids are all growing up social media. It's just. It's funny to me. That i had like four followers on twitter when twitter became a thing and they were all my friends who i said follow me. I'm just the people who knew me like twelve people young and my journalism class in college and being like just had a chicken. Parm like oh man. I miss mistress station on the way to school player being taught what tag was and being like. what is he talking about. I don't understand this at all but the now these kids have millions of dollars. And i'm like i don't i don't know how you handle that and then you remember the kid that Left high school early to go to ohio state. Yes no maybe reportedly has a deal. It's worth one point four million dollars but he'll never know what prom is like the. So that's what's how boot most likely is not going to play this year. And i'm guessing at one point. Four is gonna be spread out over three years which is still a lot of money though to knock not playing good for him. Good for him if this bothers you. It's like yeah. That's the money that i mean anybody listening. It's like that's the money that's been there. It's just finally now going in some of the directions that may be. it should've worn. Also some of it is just now above the table. Yeah exactly oh yeah well. I ten out of ten times. Skip prom for one point two million dollars just through just making that very clear for like a thousand skit for one hundred dollars. I would skip it for free. But if we're putting money missing johnny boy missing problem would be more would make you more interesting than not miss. The you'd probably miss it and be like man it could have been. This could have been this and really you would never know that it actually would have sucked so the only value missing of going to promise that you find out that promise and all it's cracked up to be it's like The one that got away because if you never go then you never learn the lesson that it's not what they tell you it's going to be and so that would be a thing to live with other than that get me outta prom. Tell katie. she's got free. Twenty chicken nuggets with sweet and sour. If she doesn't go. And yes god you could give me a six piece. And i'd be like yeah. You might be any fries and on on. Yeah it's not. I got wendy's last night and i just got to say they're not for me. It's a chicken chicken mcnugget. Till i still have delivery. I've got tacos on the way i'm very i'll tell you what i'm having for dinner. Why did i didn't even tell you guys at the beginning. The number one reason that i've been feeling very emotional and attacked by the universe. And it's because there's a hurricane named kate in the way that the national weather service or whatever. It's oh my tweet. We really like. I am trying to make sure i'm Not thinking i'm the main character that i'm not like hey this about me but the things that it's tweeting i'm like dude me like stop just sitting here and just dragging yesterday is like the epitome of comedy so the national hurricane center tweeted a tropical depression kate. Kate still a poorly organized depression. And i was like. Hey yeah and then today. They tweeted kate not expected to struggling. Kate not expected to last much longer. And i was like all right. This isn't funny anymore. Is this really dark. So shout kate for not causing death and destruction. I love that for her. But i don't love that she's struggling and i'm gonna die. That's not not put that narrative into my house. Please and thank you. National weather service national hurricane. Whatever i don't have to get your name right. You're you're slandering me technically. I think it's liable reich's. It's written whatever travis. I think we have time for one more voicemail. That's going to be brought to you folks by dr pepper. That's right college. Football is back as travis's let you know. And so are the fans. Return to glory with fans ville by dr pepper. The one fans deserve guys. this is alex from akron ohio. I was just listening to that. Is the last protest so to the other. Alex from cleveland ohio. This alex is also not how stay fan Oh no why let's get to the question For some reason this popped in my head. When i was listening to last podcast. So if all the colors in the rainbow were in a hunger games style. Battle royale Do you think would come on top of you mean. Wow oh hire you l. alex. I love you. I mean absolutely love fingers. High o the so. Are we going. Roy g biv here so red yellow green blue indigo violet. And they're in a hunger games style battle and to explain what that is. It's isn't it. Every man for himself in the last one is okay. So it's a battle royale and and when you say that they're fighting do you mean like better colors so the best color wins or is it like i honestly think the argument should stand for itself. You say. I think such and such a win. Present your argument okay. That's great okay. So i would say before to the winner. Can i ruin everything. Yes no. I think early on. You're going to see a line between blue indigo and violet. Absolutely yes absolutely. Well i'm just going to put it out. There is gonna win at all. I think read. I don't know though. I think one of the first ones out number one seed yellows out early oranges probably l. early. I think indigo got a fighting chance. I'd like it to. But i think violet is makes indigo not matter as much green i think has a fighting chance but ultimately read i would say honestly i think it comes down to green and red and red powers being held at. What is it being held out as it being outside the woods right with and they all talk all the words green can blend with the with the league an over simplification of the concept. Which is why. I wanted to establish ground rules and parameters. There's no rules fighting for these reasons. Number one seed comes first in the roy. G bay is the capitalized first letter if he were to use it like an like and i know you'd also capitalize the g. and the b. So i guess it coming down to red green and blue makes a lotta sense. I also think that red. If you're drawing a rainbow could get away with omitting any of the colors except read. I think that yes. Spain always the top color that is used. Because it's the edge it's where you can see the defined but then the middle can get a little murky. I just think red is the predominant color of a rainbow and actually now that i'm thinking about a yellows kind of big in there too. I think yellow is too soft like sunshiny to where i think. That yellow would be overpowered simply because the outlook of yellow is happy and sunshine. And read per famously is the color of violence. So i think red would end up winning. The only yellow even makes it. Like isn't the first one gone is a red slake. Hey stick with me. Oh yeah yeah yeah. Take up to go around roy. If it actually becomes roy. V bill green dies first and then it's the red orange yellow alliance versus the blue indigo violet via alliance. And then it just is what every into it. out as men in blazers famously. I believe has said everything is a battle of red and blue. And that's really what everything boils down to politics sports it's always the reds versus the blues. And i'm a red. You'll never walk alone so you'll never hunger by yourself. My grandpa is used to say right. Breadwinner red wins. Alex glad we can clear that up for you. I hope you sleep account. Alex please call in with another one of your questions. yeah please. that's it for this week. Second edition of sports. This is the second one of these right. Is it wednesday. What is this. Today's this chicken used gatorade and dr pepper. Also showed it to the thirty for thirty podcasts. And the undefeated present the king of crenshaw this four part series examines how nipsy hustles life death and legacy impacted the sports world particularly the nba.

Sports? with Katie Nolan

2:05:05 hr | Last month

Act Like You're American

"In sports with katie. Nolan is fueled by gatorade. Whatever path you take the greatness gatorade is there to fuel it. Greatness starts with g. I would get a second from microwave because long regular science. A full fridge with an ice now as twin. Hello hello invisible. Friends of mine. Welcome to sports. The puck assists. Answer the question mark but it starts question. That is what it feels like most times. It's me travis. Don't push play yet. It's not time yet. I'm katie nolan. That's travis going on she's christina. Hello we still have intern nate lou. And here's today's question. Compressed for yeah whenever you're ready high shady union and nathan nathan part of the union currently in cincinnati airport. I have a question for you every time i'm in an airport. I feel the need to drink soda. I don't normally drink soda life And i'm wondering if you all have anything like this In your life for instance a lot of times when people go to a baseball game they feel the need to get a hotdog. Most people aren't really sitting around eating hot dogs all the time and Wondering if you guys have anything in your life that when you go someplace it really Traits of crazy and you All right love you mean it right. I love you and i mean it to I don't know if you knew the podcast or you're familiar with the concept of sammeng it but you really almost set on your way. You gave the reason you ask the question. Which is you only drink soda at the airport and then you you were like for example and as soon as you said for example and like you already gave an example. Don't give too many other examples because then we're just going to say those. I don't know if you've noticed that about us. But if you put us in a certain mode we kind of stay there and it's not good for the creativity of the podcast. Regardless i love you and i do mean it and i'm really sorry that you're in the cincinnati airport. I don't want to give the exact same answer as you. But i've said before i really only drink ginger ale on planes it is as i've mentioned champagne of the sky it's just tastes fancier up there. It's like a bubbly fancy. It feels like champagne for some reason when you're when you're thirty thousand feet or however high you get above the earth usually with my pinky out when i have my ginger ale on the point. I don't want to give like oh you're at an airport and you said soda so minds as soda. Airport related thing. I think that's me being lazy. So i'm really trying to think of it and i will say and let me before i say this. They don't smoke kids but the hardest thing about quitting smoking. Cigarettes was driving anywhere because before associated driving with smoking. Cigarettes like long drives. Were very very very difficult. So i think that indicates that there really is sometimes a connection between performing some task or going to some location and doing a thing that you don't normally do i just can't think of my best example of that but i bet you guys have examples. I must say the cincinnati airport. It's not even in cincinnati. What didn't we already go over this in kentucky kentucky really grateful that we did already go over it and i deleted that fact because i have for my brain and to know that i deleted that one. I'm proud of myself. But anyway what you do in certain places travis already took mine some trying to think of new it was even if i quote unquote lame christina. It's not like you'll be original. Think of your own well christina of all the hills for you to die on. I don't know if that this is the best one. Because i have a different one. That's why what's go ahead Mine is whenever. I go to the movie theater a half to get candy. And it's i don't ever if i'm at the grocery store if i'm at a gas station i'll walk right by candy. But what am i theatre for. Whatever reason. I have to get popcorn and candy whether it's something like skittles sour patch kids or something chocolate. It has to be candy i. This isn't really the same. But i will say whenever i go to a cvs. I have to buy a nail polish. How often in my painting my nails. Not all about all. But whenever i go to. Cvs let me just see if they've got. I went through a phase like that with lipstick. And i'm like why am i. I just wanna see what colors are in this season and add to my collection of unused full nail polishes nathan. Do you have anything. Mine's not really like craving necessarily. But i don't normally wear sunscreen but went i'm sunburnt. I wear sunscreen. All that sounds backwards best. Now you're not you're not you're put on before yeah letting your your experienced dictate your future actions numb. But hey gets that more than a kid with add. So i'm not going to judge you. I just feel like putting it on afterwards is still good right. Yeah still doing some. You still are not really help. Getting more burn. Yeah it's not helping at all but feels good. It's cold travis. You find anything in your brain yet. No well i do see you looking so hard. I know entre editing through piles of trash looking for something question. So i i was thinking when you said ginger ale i only drink ginger ale when i'm sick and that as i grew up we're like your stomach wall so i didn't know the actual reason but i grew up thinking anytime. I had a cold or time. i got sick. My grandmother would be like well. Did you drink ginger ale. And so now it's and it was really like this soda can probably wasn't helping to grandma's check the box. What's the same thing as like. Whiskey like a baby was like put a little whiskey on the tanker on your finger. Canker sore take like whiskey. According to my grandpa my grandpa whiskey could solve every problem. I don't know if this was unique to my family. But what i associate with. Being sick is flat soda because my mom used to take coca cola and she would stir it until all the bubbles went out and then we would drink the flat soda. I don't know why. I don't remember what it was four but that specific taste now always makes me think of being sick baby always at seven up when i was sick Similar to ginger alright kind of missing the important part which is gender the gender similar. But it's carbonated so yeah the same sure. Do you have one or no travis. Before i move onto my next question. Based off of chains question go ahead is nathan in the union. I feel like that's something that we need to address. Have you invited him. Formerly to the union is there a process if he when he leaves does he have to. I don't know. do you have to band the. How does this work. I mean this is. Nathan's last week with us though. So does that mean that he's initiated just for the week and then he can't be initiated makes this sound like a fraternity more than a union. We're dealing with some labor laws in california. Okay so it's their stuff happening behind the scenes up the right. Now it's out of control out of our control. I can't possibly be anyone else. Gone onto stuart and asked for him to be formally accepted ginger ale people taking almost none of which this has been can answer your desk of the no. That's right. I think this is where you're getting confused cristina. You'd think that union means that you guys have equal say and travis is demonstrating for kids at home. That's not always how it works. Sometimes there's a person in charge of the union and that person's kind of role hybrid dictatorship union. There was a meeting last spread it. I think you're in chicago convene. Wow i don't like i just want to say for me. I just for the record. I'm i don't like this. I don't like the way the sounds. I'm not sure either practices. But i also for the record again am not in the union. Nothing to do with it so any complaints that you have. I mean i. It sounds like i have nothing to do with either. So you did start the union katie. What allegedly told you did tell us to unionize. I told you to unionize. That's me supporting you. That's me rooting for you. That's not me having anything to do with what this union has devolved into okay. Please don't shane. thank you for your question. Very good question and two very good answers you gave which are probably better than the answer and a half you got out of us but at least you learned that i have a lot of nail polish. If anybody else has a question they want tangentially answered. You can always ask it to us on our answering machine. The number is eight six zero five six five seven one. Hi hi How's everybody doing. What's today monday monday. How's yours. how's it hanging. it's monday it's another monday. Yeah it's crazy how they keep happening isn't it how it's now you get through the week and you're like and then you're like wow again monday. Hello we're really doing this all still doing this. What do i have to do to get you to stop coming back. What what are we going to do to get monday to just be like you don't want i don't want this relationship to work. They don't appreciate me and then it just pieces out forever. Happy monday has everybody been. How's your time. How was your weekend a to do anything. I started binging. Friday night lights on net looks. Oh solid show skip season. What season does it go nuts. Two or three. Don't say anything that's no. You've never seen it. I've never seen it is friday night. Lights is your entire personality. It's like you've seen varsity blues. You've definitely seen the movie. Friday night lights when it came out. Okay you in my head. You've seen the show you've seen the scene The replacements you've watched every football movie that there is. You've watched every sports movie that there is. You've never seen friday night lights. Nope wow well good. I'm i've been seen either travis and i was thinking about starting it so maybe we can net party and watch together. Wow oh thirteen catchall. So that was shut down real now. We get to see if nathan's going to try to catch up or he's just like it. I don't wanna watch friend travis. That badly cut up. Because i forgot that the challenge starts on mondays. I yeah i was gonna tell you can bring it up the waiter season I don't know the details. But i know that there's a bunch of people from different survivors like there's a few from survivor in the us. But then there's a bunch of other that's a. That is an intersection of travis's interests very excited. So i have below deck the challenge and bachelor like i had to move below deck. I'd to record the second airing of it 'cause my dvr is on overload isn't bachelorette over. Didn't she pick what a time goes down to the final three now but i think this might be the final episode or second to last hours and they stretch it out. Oh it's too many weeks. That's when i stopped whereas i cannot invest three else gone but it's still just makes me feel worse about wasting time. I'd much rather waste time on something that could eventually in my career be like. Oh well when. I was watching the sopranos. The way they did that with that is a smart way to. If you're watching three hours of a woman you'll never meet pick a man. She's probably not really gonna stay married to for forever. You're putting more time into the relationship than they are. It doesn't make sense The challenges called spies lies allies. You know what last year they leaned a little heavy into the spy words and theme. So i don't love that. I'm going to just be honest but i bet it's going to be great and i'll watch all of it. Tonight is a sneak peek episode. Actually wednesdays the official. I'll see you don't even need to worry about. It sounded like you felt very overwhelmed by all the is that the sex you like this let let you off the hook. Stress-free you've got an extra so sneak. Peek episode is just. We're airing the episode early so that we can combine ratings and two nights of airing instead of one. Yes like a giant trailer right steph. No it's definitely the episode. I think they did this with the when they brought the real world back when they did the reunion show. They're like we're going to air the episode but pretend it's a preview. It will get my attention. I because i have devoid devoid twitter than ever get into. I've tried i've tried to. I'm not forcing you to if you cannot re our conversation with your significant other than don't watch three hours of two other people dating each other. Having a conversation do thank. You should get into the challenge though christina christina. That'll be worth your time i think. Can you hear my air conditioning. That just went off. No okay good all right. Is that in your way to try to get away from watching the challenges. The twenty seasons or something isn't it crazy. How many seasons yeah. You don't have to go all the way back. I would not recommend that. Even i only wear it. Should i start. Started brand new. We're could just start now and then decide if it's something that you like and then you can. Have you know. go to sleep knowing that. There's a plethora of content to await you when you awake. Well it but if you like season you know who the people are but you can figure out the rules. They play katie nine. Yeah just infinite. Were basically Encyclopedias of knowledge so it starts when it comes to the challenge. Such a dvr or you can watch it. Sneak preview hard knocks comes online at nathan. Thank you dallas cowboys. I remember sports the thing that i wanted to work in podcasts. Can we talk about those a little. All right what's that cowboys cowboys easy. Yeah the i us is. I don't think they're gonna let us see anything. Oh i think they will. Because their publicity protected franchise the patriots out publicity. He's not about truth telling to the media. He's not about like transport. Air our dirty about publicity. Which is exactly what i'm saying. They're going to put on shiny front thrust their offices where they practice where you can watch the team practice from office spaces that people use this team is all about is all about what whatever gives them the most publicity so they're gonna show there. You're going to get more there. Jerry loves al your talk. You're thinking that that show is about football still instead of realizing that it's about the business of football and being watched the stuff that happens off of the field. So yeah maybe. The offices overlook the field. The offices glass walls. No there's there's no transparency on that side of it so that's not going to be as interesting. I don't think head and ride and die for the patriots would be terribly uninteresting on hard knocks. Because you're not going to see any of the drama you wanna team. That's got a mess of up front office and there was there was a there was a fight at practice between them. And the rams there and dawn. Aaron darnold so Aaron donald. I said like where are we going with is aaron sam. They became one even if they don't show us the real drama. Hbo will figure out a way to make drama and make it exciting. You know who who produces hard knocks the nfl way to just. I'm just saying. I'm just saying she wants us to be about sports now. Also follow You know what the highlight of my weekend was. And i'm not being sarcastic and actually don't feel guilty about it at all. The highlight of my weekend was last night. I got up out of bed. Shout out i went out into the living room. And i said you know what i'd kill for right now. Dan said what am i was like a dairy queen. Vanilla cone dipped in cherry and he was like i've been thinking about a blizzard for. He's like for two weeks. And i was like i can get us zipcar and he was like. There's one three miles away and i was like. Oh my god. We're doing this so we rented a car and drove to dairy queen and sat in an eight what we wanted and then we drove back. What kind of got a reece's overload. Something special the commercial the one that saw yesterday and they tropez derek win today. But it was closed. And i was gonna make of quick detour. Dairy queen is something i so associate with suburbia just because of my personal experiences that you could always drive to it after softball practice or like after dance class and then you drive home but living where i don't have a car and where everything's like you take the subway or train or a uber uber to a dairy queen. What do you do see the so weird so it was such like an old school comfort thing for me to get into a car drive to a dairy queen. It was lovely. We had a blast. Like you're seventeen and went on a date with dan when you consider that the majority of denies relationship has happened in a pandemic. it was like one of our day. It was like a date it was it was it was an actual out. We went out on a date. It was really very happy with merlet home we. Dan was home. I'm like damn we're gonna be gone for an hour. She'll be totally fine. Yeah it was. That was the highlight of my weekend. That's what i have to share. Anyone do anything more interesting cristina. Would you get into I didn't really do much. But on friday night i went out to dinner with my boyfriend and his parents for his birthday. His birthday was last wednesday. I'll have him we He was so what's funny is and i'm slowly learning because we We obviously started dating right before the pandemic just like you and dan and so we haven't had much out like much to do outside of our apartment and just like family gatherings and so the more we eat out at restaurants go out and celebrate things. I'm learning like more about him. Our relationship so i've noticed. He doesn't like celebrating birthdays. I love celebrating other people's birthdays. I don't i could care less about mine but other people's birthdays. I wanna get you all the gifts. I want to the second. You open your eyes. I'm singing happy birthday to you. Like i'm celebrating you all freaking day. And he hates it. He doesn't like attention. He doesn't like gifts and i'm like well. This is me. And i'm giving you all of it so all day. It was like birthday extravaganza for him. I got balloons for the apartment. I was like every time. I saw like happy birthday. And he hated it but We took him out to dinner and once we got home. I'd been waiting all day for his birthday present to get delivered. And i was really annoyed that it wasn't delivered on his birthday so i didn't wanna say what it was last week because i knew that he would listen. I didn't want him to hear what it was before he actually got I got him an led sign. That's like Two of them. One is jameson irish whiskey. Because that's his family's favorite shot to take because they're very irish. But then i also got him a jets one and what was funny was the guy.

The podcast travis watched rhythmic gymnastics. We're going to do a lot more other stuff. But i do have to be honest. That's what i'm looking forward to. The most is discussing a sport. Perhaps the only sport that i am underqualified person to speak on sports is maybe the most qualified to one of the more qualified to speak on. Let's put it that way. Even that i'm like i don't know the rules have changed a lot since i was a kid. But we're gonna talk about rhythmic gymnastics and also all the other olympic stuff because those are done now and then in the second. Half of the podcast. We'll talk about all the other sports stuff like what's down there. I put michael thomas down there if you feel all talking about it. Coffee coffee didn't see anything about coffee. But i don't know what that has to do with sports. Stay find out stay tuned. I mean you think he'd understand teased by now. But i think we'll get there eventually before we get to all of that and there's more than what i said so just stick around. Today's podcast is pretty quick.

Could you do the entire pot as nasty if you had to. But i wouldn't do that was don't i wouldn't some of those pauses between words. You're like what just say the next. We won the olympics right. That's how it works. We want olympics united states. You you say we had thirty nine golds and one hundred thirteen total medals china. Who came in second sorry to them. Thirty eight golds need to wear my glasses for this doc. Yeah this is so tiny. Eighty eight total medals. So we owned you. We just went in there. And we smoked. Everybody hundred. Thirteen baby is out good. Did we do good champion window. Badmin- i in the olympics. I said when's the last time we came in. I in the olympics in two thousand sixteen. Oh the last talk. Well well there. Isn't we got a bit of a sports dynasty winter olympics between that wasn't there. Yeah i don't know about that one. That one doesn't really count as much. What's it How who's to a real opinion. Who is that a common. Take that people. Think that Summer olympics are more olympics in the winter olympics was that actually i need the more. You talk in fact that you're kind of smiling. I don't know if you're being serious or if the well you've gotta assume didn't the olympic source countries that compete in the winter olympics and the sports agnes norway. Norway finished first with thirty nine. Total medals told me how. That's good for them though. That's thirty nine the winter. You should crush at that. And they thirty nine would give you seventh-place bouquet became fourth. It's the winter olympics. it's not as inclusive. There's less events what you even because all these events like you need snow and ice and different things to compete track and field boom run throw gymnastic sports basketball soccer a the views of travis rock hold do not the best union or espn So travis feels like the winter olympics. Don't count okay. Jv game before the varsity game. They're raised beijing is like in six months. It's very soon this olympic thing of skipping a year. i think we're going to underestimate. It's like we were walking and then we tripped and then we ran for a little bit. And then we're going to go back to walking. And i think that's gonna throw us off over you mention nbc. They like just got through that time for winter olympics. Let's go well. didn't they. Just unload a bunch of sports rights anyway so they have they. They do have space to filter. The jv game will it'll come around. Oh my goodness we've got a great roster of talent for it look. I'm ready for the olympics again. I feel like a couple of years ago and maybe even like five minutes ago. If you had made a convincing argument to me that the olympics should go away forever. I'd be like absolutely economically and just globally and what it does to. Yes sure maybe. We should have four four permanent venues across the world and rotate between them. So we stopped building all these new stadiums that then just go to ruin when the olympics are over totally but then at the same time. If you were to tell me that now we should go to an olympic every year. I would also be like. Yeah i love the olympics so torn forever or olshan. Never be done ever again. It's a humanitarian crisis. But i also love. I think they rule. So i don't know what to do with that but you know i guess i'll just look at my iphone and feel like. Oh you have to feel that way about everything everything that you love also sucks for a reason so anyway. Let's talk about the olympics since it's going to be our last chance to do so for a month or two men's basketball because you have to always start there. Don't you know women's basketball. The women's basketball team won their seventh consecutive gold medal. Shoutouts we've got a shot up brianna stewart. Who has an insane resume stuey four-time nc double champ four time nc double a. tournament m. p. a. Three nc double a national player of the three time all american wnba rookie year wnba mvp two-time wnba champ two-time wnba finals mvp three-time w all star time wnba. First team euroleague champ. Mvp finals vp. And two-time gold medallist. Did you gotta breath reading all that. What's crazy i was gonna say. What's crazy is leslie long. Sue bird is the greatest athlete of all time. The watching the women's basketball team and i'll be honest. I was watching the gymnastics. A had it on tv. But i wasn't giving it my full attention. Because i knew they were going to run away with the game which they did but watching the joy afterwards watching them celebrate was great. It was. There's so much happiness and you could tell they worked so hard for it and they got it. And i loved it and shout out dawn staley. The first black head coach of the us olympic women's basketball team seventh consecutive gold impressive across the board women's basketball. The boys also one right. Yeah they were also there. They beat who they beat. France right in the final eighty-seven eighty to a game. That looks closer on paper than it felt when you watched it. But after they had lost you know in the exhibition games They lost to nigeria. They lost australia. People were upset then. They got to the olympics. They lost to france and people were upset again. people were like does usa basketball suck. Are they the worst The answer of course always was no but is now a resounding now They do not suck. They are not the worst. But kevin durant believe it or not is holding a grudge kevin durant and draymond green. Believe it or not are upset. About what the people had to say and they're not letting it go. Raise your hands if you are surprised by that. Great nut surprise. But i love how katie just came out and was on camera i g live or whatever it was sane instead of just tweeting it from burner count. Kevin durant is a study in evolution. Right because he's us he started out as guy with burner accounts who would log onto the internet and just yell at people and defend himself from the behind a mask and then one day all he got called out for it. People got caught doing it. They call them sensitive yada yada. I think he stopped and then all of a sudden he just was like you know what mask off and then just started tweeting it from his own account and then now is just like found. I hope some sort of peace in just saying what he thinks and being like. I don't care i don't know if that's necessarily how he feels. It's important for us to remember that. What people present on social media is not exactly always representative of how they feel behind closed doors but i do think that katie is this argument that like he went from having to log on to say it anonymously to saying it on camera now of like is what i think and i think that's a great lesson. I also think that some people do the opposite of that were they just log in and say things and they don't consider that they don't need to be said but that's a different argument in this one. I support kevin durant and his evolution online. And i think these players had a right to the amount of hate that they were getting while some of it was legitimate. I think they had a right to come out. And call callao the people that were doubting him and saying they're fourth-best and the people travis not just the people which is a vague generic term referring to anybody who said anything bad about the us basketball team but draymond green specifically kendrick. Perkins you talk a lot of a lot of act like your american is the greatest number honestly. Air and excitement very much could not be more excited. He went on to say in his post game. Press conference draymond green quote. You turn on american sports talk tv. You've got guys like kendrick perkins doubting us. Somebody needs to teach these people some loyalty. How about you cheer for your country. But then when guys don't play all you need to go represent the country and then you lose hit a little bump in the road and everybody's oh everybody's caught america. You're an american to act like it do your job. I do some media stuff. I understand your job but when you talk about a special group you better be sure you're right and a lot of people got it wrong and trust me. I'll be posting those guys. I'll be seeing everybody. I found who said something. No one holds people accountable anymore. But i will. I feel like i'm with the draymond on some of it but it also feels like you know when somebody's finally feels like they're right or like they have ground to stand on and now he's on revenge stand on the ground and then they go a little too they take. And you're like well. Whoa whoa like like. Where's your loyalty to the. I mean you're talking to an industry. Sports media that for so long was told. They could not have a rooting interest. I understand that in the olympics in your united states you rooting for the united states. But there is a weird. I don't know sports media does still sometimes try to pretend it isn't biased in a way celso kendrick perkins was never rooting against them. He was just giving his his stance in his take on the team. That doesn't mean that he wasn't ruining that's the one i think where trae months wrong but man i love mom. Yeah this is. that doesn't surprise me. I don't know why sounded surprised. You seem like the kinda guy who would you know maybe punching opposing player in the groin by accident. During all i know is he said you're an american too. And i love it. Yeah he did say that Let the men's basketball team. Also very good. i mean. they're not as good as the women's basketball team but kevin durant. There's an argument to be made that he's the greatest olympic basketball player of all. So that's where i just. I can't buy into most accomplished and greatest dream team had a better shine. That will i just think lebron. Kobe were on the olympics. And they're better than take those two k. d. Michael jordan is on the olympics on your olympic kevin. Durant has been. I don't wanna say faithful to the olympics. But it is the first word that popped into my mind. He'd he'd i think kevin durant just purely loves basketball. And i think that's a joyful thing he genuinely just loves playing basketball well which is cool but not everybody i think does you don't have to but i love that about kevin durant. I do think it's fair to say that. The world hasn't caught up to american basketball but the world is catching up at. I mean not even. It's not just basketball other sports olympics. And you see all of these other sports out there and countries being more successful and we'll consider thing in threes. There was a the game against australia. I think like the. I think the united states missed the game right before the game against france was australia right and i think the united states missed their first like ten threes. And it was like. Oh this is going to be and they figured it out because they they do. And 'cause you know gregg popovich is no scrub But y- i think it's the these other countries are are all focused on you know when they if you can take down america. So that's like they can also play together a lot. More than the united states teams do Many of them. So i don't know. I think it's interesting. Olympic basketball is interesting to me. It also feels weird. The timing of it right now like free agency happened while they're there and then now they're gonna see now. Summer league is starting and it just felt weird to me that we went from like the finals to olympic basketball. Basketball's isn't taken a break. Three of the guys went from nba finals. Two days later jumping on a plane and find a tokyo crazy on together. I bet kristen drew. We're we're all for being on a plane with devon devon wanted to be on the plant so they want in they're upset they're not upset but they're coming for you. Did we say anything bad about them. I don't remember now. We said that we love them when support them and so you know i think draymond should also make sure on his little revenge tour that he shouts out the people who who were american remember. They too were american and they acted like it. It's good point. He's been doing a lot of quote tweeting. People are critical. He should go find some twitter compliments. You know act like you're americans. What else the allyson felix made history chew on her eleventh olympic medal in the four by four hundred final She's passed What's his face. Now right carl lewis. Face carl lewis since the most disrespectful thing i've ever said my life so she's now surpassed carlos's most decorated olympian in american history. Doc yet no yeah. I was trying to do it from memory my memory so good testing it out. I liked the final bullet. That you put in the dock there travis. It was an incredible race for team. Usa that's helpful. Sometimes i just copy and paste. But then i was reading about her story. You know giving birth and almost just the trouble. She went through there you know. She had her baby at thirty two weeks. Emergency like all the different things that she's like done gone through just makes her even more amazing person to accomplish the things that she's done. Yeah yeah i think you know not a lot of people knew her story and you know how like all of the complications that came with her pregnancy and giving birth I actually. I saw a picture of the other day. She tweeted it out where she's with her daughter and her daughter's wearing a t shirt that says my mom's faster than your mom was like. That's so cute but They've ever allison felix is incredible. And i think you know when you. I was also reading more about where she came from. And what she's gone through and she's been very methodical with how she came back to running. I know she cut ties with certain sponsors. Who i won't name who We're kind of her. Nike wanted to cut her contract by seventy percent after chatter train. Draymond and coming for you but Yeah they wanted to cut her contract because they wanted her to go back faster than she was ready to and she was like. I almost died having a baby. I'm gonna take my time. Thank you Good for her. She came back. She crushed it good for her. Yeah what else. Olympic marathoner molly. How is it sidell. Sure sure have a beer for her after she won bronze. So when's the last time this is this woman's third ever marathon that she'd never way interest doing some reading on her. She ran track at notre dame but she did like the ten k and that stuff in this legitimately was like her third to. She knew i was when she qualified for the olympics. Then she did the thoughts nuts at that doesn't make any sense to me. I don't understand that. No i was trying to read. Like i'm guessing. She's probably ran a marathon here. They're like for fun. But like for like legitimate marathons but who'll runs a marathon. Had the olympics not been postponed. Her second marathon actually would have been the olympics but because postponed she ran the london. I should probably squeeze another one in insanity. Can you imagine your first ever marathon. You qualify for nolan no christina. I'll tell you right now. no. I can't imagine even running a marathon candidate. I go turn watching run a marathon. Yes i that's she finished in two twenty seven thirty six but talk about another person. Her story i was went down the rabbit hole. Um with her and she like a friend has a podcast you went on. It was talking about how she dealt with like eating disorders which lose weight which weakened her bones and she's owns like ocd like all these different things that she's like battling with and for her to go through that and then run the marathon. Third ever when lebron's is just absolutely insane. And then afterwards when she was you know the nbc set up a lot of cameras with the families and afterwards she told her family to. Please drink a beer which is just love that i us from wisconsin. I love it yeah. Of course. I love it because a lot of those of talk backs of families awkward. I don't know if we're yeah. Say that but there was a lot of like delay. Look i understand. i hate any live. Hit where there's a delay because there's just awkward like thank you bye okay. That's weird but the for a couple of those families were like. Why are we still turning to do really tough. They were shoplifting. The problem was early on. They didn't tell the competitors there so they surprised them but then the competitors didn't know that they could like talk to them. Yeah there was confusion about who could hear who there was a lot of waving and smiling with the anchors dropping out waiting for them to talk and just being like it was very it was weird. It was weird. And i get it. But i'm grateful for this moment where it's like. That's what was supposed to happen for me very cute for in that one night and you get the feeling a lot of the videos you feeling in your stomach. You know when you're about to cry cry. You can say second hand embarrassment for those ones where i'm like. Oh just say something say something the ones we're talking to the family and you're like oh no similar to the feeling i used to get when we would ask regis a question. He wasn't expecting on tv. Guest asked regis philbin. Something and i was like. Oh come on read. You've got this. You got this. You know the our through come on. But he always surprise me because he's regis philbin and he's very good at making television to twenty seven thirty six just to reiterate third time ever running it to twenty seven thirty six content wise without commercials that's like three episodes of below deck. And i have done that without getting up from my bed and in that amount of time. This was able to run. I'd give a gold medal for that. Katie thank you so much. Thank you i was gonna say but i do think i've been putting in work and i've earned it. I'd like to thank my team in the union. Also nathan which you could ask me to drink beer for you. If you want to hear. Travis i can do that. Because you're waiting for my permission Aren't you already drinking. one volleyball. Women's volleyball won their first olympic gold. Were you awake for this travis. The match didn't even start until twelve thirty nine do it. I up because i was about to. I was about to stop watching the olympics for the night. And then i was like we've never won olympic gold because the us women have won a lot of national competitions but they've never won gold in the olympics and so it was like well. I can't turn it off now. And so why didn't and i watched it and it was awesome. This was another one where like the people watch. Parties were cool because the watch parties were former players. Who were like walnuts. Bonfield really rooting for like come on. We need this. We deserve this. Go get the gold. And just the their coach Cards for yeah. He had been through some stuff in the like cancer and he didn't tell anybody because he didn't want it to be about himself and the only reason he's started to was he wanted to let to remind guys to know. Go get colonoscopy is when you're fifty fifty five and so on yeah. It was a really awesome story. And i've said this before but the people who do the booth like the play by play for women's volleyball is awesome. They're very interesting and cartridges. Like one of the say one of the main figures in turning around. Us volleyball like even when you're watch like the men's or the beach volleyball the announcers always referencing carts. Like he's kind of like. I guess he's the leader of their union. Yeah i guess. He won gold as a player in eighty four and eighty eight and then he won golden beach volleyball ninety six Way before your time nathan. I don't think you're born yet. I was. I wasn't born yet. What an eighty six eighty four eighty eight ninety cents said eighty six. No weren't born yet in ninety six right. That was a good year. Ninety six a good year junior olympic. Don't nathan don't even say that. I wasn't born in nineteen ninety nine. Okay all right all right we get it. You're not in the union. You don't even know what a skin care routine is yet because your skin is still new. And what's wrong with this skin. I fully it. Yeah but you don't wear sunscreen. Sunscreens thing that you wear every day once. He hit thirty just in case. 'cause they don't yes you're supposed to do i put on a good moisturizer with spf. Every morning supergroup shout out to the us one gold. That's great we're excited for them. It was a really great story The team just seems like they click very well which is great rhythmic gymnastics. He arrive so the qualifying rounds for group and individual and then the finals. I believe were saturday or friday night or said it doesn't the timing is confusing Travis what did you watch. So i saw the group you saw the replay of the group files zoom aired on and the next year and it was like shortened the whole thing and so go ahead. What did what were the thoughts. I was impressed. Were you when they through the whole hoops up and in it lands and like they're just hoop sorry. I'm sorry they're just trying to forever call them hulu so when they throw the hoops in the air when they throw the hoops and they they come down to the person like well look their foot and kick it over in her to keep it up and at bounce over the other person. I'd grab it in like trying to manage watching. It is intense. I couldn't great it. There's too many things going on at once. Thrown bowling pins in the air at some point and i was impressed with the group. I watched the group for probably a good ten minutes. Ten minutes senate i. It's not their fault. John wick who was also so they kill his dog or call or is he still mad about the first dog. No he was brought back to. He wanted out and person put in the little thing to pull him back in killed another dog no no no the because he came back in and one of the people helped him get out. The first time was forcing to get back into kill sister. I'm just gonna say that he was still upset about the first dog but fair but rhythmic gymnastics was the only thing didn't know is they don't have to submit the routine ahead of time But judged on the difficulty of the team of the routine during routine but they said the you kind of have to know they kind of been judges kind of know what it's going to be just because you have to know what to like watch for. Yeah but i'm shocked that they don't have to submit the routine yet. Go and i think what makes it interesting about that. Is that like if you know in the prelims. Let's say you know. Belarus is like oh this team has more difficult routine. We need to up one of our skills. They can do that Which is an interesting. I japan watching japan's did you. Did they show that in the replay. I didn't say japan japan question. What was the routine. Because i saw something. But i don't know what it was and i don't wanna say japan's routine was the hardest routine to watch i've ever seen in my life. It was the hardest for you to watch our hardest to do hard to watch the red balls now so this nope in club. It's who who've been bowling pin a so you the apparatus so this situation. There's five women on the floor. Three of them have a hula-hoop and two of them have. Two pairs is usually seven pieces of equipment out there right depending. Sometimes it'll be if it's hooping ball than just five hoops three hoops and two balls but it because clubs common a pair there's more and so that complicates things but so at the beginning of the routine. The groups will leave around the. You'll see around the floor out around the matt. Outside of the perimeter you'll see extra pieces of equipment and basically those are if your who gets away from you or the club bounces out of bounds. You're supposed to pick up the basically the penalty replacement apparatus. Otherwise you could be chasing a hula-hoop around jim trying to get back on the floor so to put it needs to me. What happened with japan. Is that one of them. Missed an exchange so who was thrown in the air that they were supposed to catch and they missed the hoop and they. I think at this point she went to go. Get the replacement ono. So that happened. I and the girl grabbed the replacement hope then so now on that side of the floor there is no replacement but in your head you may still think there's one there because there's a replacement hoop supposed to be over there. So then another exchange was and the woman was closest to wear the taken hoop was taken from so she went to go. Get the hoop out of the formation and there was no there so then you see this moment i was like. Oh my god where she was like. There's no hoop. And i would have run across the mat to get the other hoop so i'm just gonna stand in formation and do the moves without a hoop and then came the moment that she was supposed to toss the hoop she didn't have to and other person on the some looked over realized a hoop was missing and had to grab the extra hoop and while this was happening. The rest of the team you can imagine. These exchanges are like hoops in the air all at once. We're one girls throwing three hoops that are going to three different and so when one person is a little off it's a mess when two people are scrambling to figure things out and the other three half to keep going. My heart was in my throat. I thought they were going to just stop and be like we're done. We're not doing the routine but they finished it and honestly. I know this sounds like a but i was like good for you for finishing it because when you miss a step in a dance. I'm trying to think of what. I can make this relatable to you travis because i know the rhythm has never gotten but i feel like so. It's like when. I thought i had one more beer left in the fridge. And it was gonna give you competing and everything kind of sequential and all of a sudden you miss one. It's very difficult to pick. You can't pick up where you left off. You have to pick up where everybody else went ahead without you. So it's like you have to speed through the moves in your brain and try to figure out where you can jump back in in the fact that they managed to do that and yes it was hard to watch in. It certainly didn't score well but the fact that they could still finish at the end of the music on time was like good for you guys but that's a sanity. I was so anxious for them. It was like no no no what they need is a ballboy an hoop boy. Well i'm sure that you know. They re examine their rules and they're scoring after every olympic. So i bet. Now's the time travis if you wanted to lobby at out there. What's the governing body. Tweet them the. Us nope the i owed g. I have no idea Do you get is their credit for like how high a hula-hoop is thrown in the air. No but one crazy thing about it. That i think doesn't get enough credit but they did mention on the broadcast this year. Is the air traffic control of it all because if you have five. Let's say because like you said christina the other thing that they had to compete and it was either all five of them had ball like a ball. That's what i saw three head. Hoops two pairs of clubs in that situation. If five women are throwing a ball to another woman on the floor thing you don't think about at elite competition but that happened to hold the time in the younger levels. Is those balls passing in the air at exactly the same height and bouncing into each other off of each other off of the matt. So it's like the thing it's crazy. How rarely happens given that. It must be very difficult to throw in your coordinate how to imagine. Roll them in the air across the you told you. Tell the people throw on your right side yet. Will they communicate about how who's gonna throw lower and who's gonna throw higher so you don't necessarily get points for high close but you get the points in the sense that it gets over the other hoops and doesn't causing throwing a ball. You posted a of yourself. During rhythmic gymnastics off. There is a toss in that video. That upsets me that you can't see it. Where was the toss. It's really small. I put tossed it into my own hands but it does go up in the. That is my first competition. Ever which if i may air out a family grievance i have at this moment the orinoco i have access to. I went through my families. My family like digitized a lot of thought. It was all of our home videos. No-one library the only. There's a video of my looks like my final competition which i believe was in west point. There's a video of the group before us that we've never met. We don't know. I don't know any of their names. I don't it on twitter and see if you can find them. It was like my dad was just filming the competition. So the thought was there. He wanted to get more footage than we needed. Problem is recorded over the footage. we needed. Which was me and so. I don't have any video of me. Being good at rhythmic gymnastics. The only video. I have is my very first competition which was pretty good for my very first time dancing with a ball. I didn't drop it. You didn't throw it in the air. I gave it a little toss. You could have thrown it and did a little spin and commodores the footage. They aired on a highly questionable. The way you can tell it's my first meet ever is. I'm doing very common thing with the hoop. Which is you circle it. I'm showing them. I know you guys can't see but you circle it around your hand like that. I'm so unused to that feeling and to motor skills. In general as i believe i'm five to seven years old. My other hand is out on the side kind of doing the same stuff. Do not with the other. When i saw that clip i was like man. I was so uncoordinated as a human being to be coordinated enough to dance with a rope and hoop and a ball shouts to me. So i'm sorry travis that it launched the ball into the air but did you see the splits because that's the splits with no hesitation. I have a serious question jokes. Aside about the hoop in the hula-hoop is it like what's the difference between the hoop they use a hula-hoop i couldn't tell you well. It doesn't have stuff in the middle. It doesn't have the like balls in the you know how when you do a hula-hoop noise doesn't have that weeds or say could you. Could you use a hoop from rhythmic gymnastics and do a with. Yeah yes you could make a hoop out of wood. Metro just curious. What the honest differences. Yeah well we ordered ours from a a. You know a reputable steeler There's one in every county. The only the only event i saw was a replay of i think and i could be very wrong but i think it was bulgaria. One and the like all around group-group all around yet and they were all of them had just read balls and they shoot. Yeah they did. They did both routines but then they compare they like all around. Okay both yea. Because i saw that routine where they were all just tossing red balls at each other and it was the most insane like i just. I don't understand the coordination. The there are girls like that are just blindly throwing this thing behind their back doing splits and flips and catching it and how and again i will sow the more fascinating thing about ball for me is when you learn that they are not allowed to grip it so like watching that routine time. They every time they would do a lay back. Which is when you kick your leg up and your you bend backwards. Every time they do one of those in the ball they have to turn their hand so that the ball can rest. it's supposed to rest on your palm. What's not allowed into more insane. Yeah separate your fingers basically. Yeah you can like you. That's why a lot of times when they do hold onto it. They hold it with their palms and put their fingers out. So you can see that. It's being trapped between their two palms and they're not holding it A ball while so the balance that's required for that is insane. I wanna see simone biles take a hoop shuck. It up in the air. Do a bunch of little byles. Things and then at shattering disrespectful. That's incredibly disrespectful. I think he's distrustful. What like the way that it something that they added this year. Or maybe just in any of the twenty years. Since i've done it is that they're allowed to pick each other up. We were not allowed to do that before. You weren't allowed to support the weight of a teammate. On another team so like they. Now do these lifts and i was like. Oh that's allowed now. Because i wasn't allowed before but something else that happened that absolutely triggered me was in the individual competition which they during the day on nbc. Because there was a huge controversy that we will get to in a second but one of the women during the ribbon. Exercise got a not in her ribbon. Oh not good at all and man. When i tell you that something that i haven't thought about in years but the the watching it happen to somebody is genuinely the definition of triggering. I was like. Oh my god. I remember getting a not in my ribbon during competition it makes it so that all those little things they will harrell's and will they're called spirals but the it makes it so that that your patterns don't stay tight and you can't do your. It's just a constant deduction you get you get points off on everything you do after that. Because there's not in your ribbons can't stop fast undo it But then that would undo it. You can just stand in the middle of the floor and untangle and not what sort of mental presence do you have. I would be so hold on almost got it. Hollywood take me an hour to panic at untying. Not with a bunch of people watching you. I've watched survivor with under. These knots all the time they get done fast anyway. What they do now with the woman did now was that she just swapped it out with the penalty ribbon and she took the penalty but blake would just sit on the side. The individual all around was controversial because there are two. I mean everything about the story fascinating. There are two russian twins a their names are dna averina and what's the other one alina arena arena averina and dina averina. They were favorites to win. People thought they would take gold and silver. They didn't suckers the woman suck ashram. What's her first name. L- annoy The woman from israel annoy ashram one. It was wild. She had a great routine. She dropped her ribbon which was when one of the averina twins thought that she was going to be able to overtake her but she didn't and guess who wasn't happy about that. The ceo of the rotc putin everybody involved in russia which this group technically isn't right because they're not but they are. I don't know how you're supposed to avoid that. But okay so russia was mad about it. What's interesting about this story. They they did this thing where they Went to what's the appealed it basically which you can do in happened way too much in the finals. If we're being honest but the the judges reviewed. I think all they can change when they review your scores your difficulty so they can review and be like. Did we miss something. And then they can increase it. But they can't decrease i also think is the case And they were basically like no. We nailed it. You were wrong. She lost by like point. One five maybe point zero one five nope point one five and so they did the review and they were like no she one and then right away. Russia was like no. What's interesting about the story is all the different forms of social media used for different people from russia to say that they had a problem with this so right after it happened. It stanislavov pause pozdnyakov. Who's the president again. Ceo of the rotc. We we would like to have answers to a number of questions. He wrote on his instagram account. We will seek a thorough probe into the judging situation at the olympics by the relevant technical committee will make every effort to ensure the transparency of this process. And we'll make its results pub public so then Averina lashed out. I wanna say on twitter. But i could be wrong or maybe this is just a statement that said we'll get to twitter and a second. I don't feel it was fair today and it was obvious from the very first apparatus when i got a lower score so i can't say that it was very fair. I can't spot any obvious mistake that i did the. Rotc called it a an injustice on twitter. The rotc posted a statement by averina that read in part. My conscience is clear. I still believe that i won. I don't know what that. I don't know what that's about. A prominent russian judge is prominent. Russians accused the judges of bias. Dina didn't lose. She won but unfortunately the judging was aggressively unjust That's the president of russian rhythmic gymnastics federation said that to our t. which is not just russia tv. I don't know if that's what stands for but to me. The coach said it was simply a disgrace to rhythmic gymnastics and then A russian foreign ministry spokeswoman maria zakharova fumed accusing the judges of committing forgery in front of the whole world. Those who started the russia phobic war against the sport could not allow this victory. Zakharova said on messaging app telegram. I what's that Like a messaging app is in social media. That's just like text right. So the knicks saving these coaches realize. There's more apps out there to message either. Gonna mark cuban is upset. Nobody posted anything on cyber dust. But anyway shot to israel. This was a big win for them. i it was a. She had an excellent performance. I'm old nervous to speak on this. Because i'm assuming that vladimir another russian oligarchs whatever listen to this podcast but russia so that's your safe it hack me now. They're not but this is in russia. Right it's rotc has oh yeah. This is against russia. No no no. This is against the rotc. Nothing against you guys. It's funny that the country that had the biggest states sponsoring cheating scandals upset about something that they probably shouldn't be allowed to compete in the end to that. I'll say it actually isn't the country itself It's again the rotc. So when we're talking about state sponsored the rotc can't be legally so it's a get it. They're like look if keating's not allowed stop doing it. I never understood how they can get the judging. Any of these sports that are judged. It's like you could put some real pressure on those people. How many judges judge each routine. A lot for nick masks for the because that was that was going to be my. My question is because there's so much going on. I feel with rhythmic gymnastics. You need you. Need multiple people would say fourteen dollars you so you need like ten to fifteen after each round like you need to talk by kay. This is what i saw. They each have an individual can. Go watch jurisdiction. So it's like. I'm looking for this and then a lot of them there's payers so they'll they'll each watch for it and then compare to make sure i just feel like when you're putting people in charge of the scoring that allows people to manipulate people. People are manipulated so whenever people at the judges yet. It's like oh can they. Contact those judges hurt them. I hope not. I hope they have. I just don't. I can't imagine wanting to be a judge for an olympic event in an event that certain countries competed or olympic committees that represent certain countries because those countries aren't allowed to compete. Because of how mean they are seriously they take this. I just imagine you had an Bellere's tried to remove a woman and now she was luckily able to cause a scene at the airport and stat story is seek asylum. She's now auctioning off one of her medals to like help out whether athletes like what is she is she. Water happened yet. A funny feeling people might not know the story. She was leaving her vent and then she was put in relay which apparently she's never done before and posted on someone like sneakily came to her and there were like you need to be. You're going to be on this tomorrow or something. Like that wasn't didn't somebody visit her and tell her she had to run this event and so she post on instagram. That a she was against this and all sudden the belarus olympic committee was taken to the airport and she caused a scene at the airport to where they tried to just put her on a plane. The authorities got involved in a couple of countries than she was trying to get asylum in a couple of countries reached out and now she's going through the process of she. She spoke out on not wanting to run an event that she was told to. And saying that the belarus olympic committee slash guessing government was forcing her to do something and so then they tried to force her to get on a plane and go home to which she caused a scene and now she's in jail the she's in jail no because she got asylum. She's an airport and people like she asked for help and people helped her. Her name is christina Her name is christina. Symons sciutto She's a belarus split sprinter. She said her while she had talked to her grandmother and her grandmother was like do not come home. They're talking about you. It was in She arrived in poland That's where she's seeking asylum. I believe you just don't realize like with some of these countries how serious they take their sports and the pressure that these other athletes are under like we look at it as you know our athletes going over there and they're enjoying having fun and for a lot of them. It's you know it's even more pressure because it's life or death for some of Yet she said that men came to her hotel room and they said you should say you have an injury or something and Get on the plane and if you don't do that This was her then quote than i can get some problem in my country which is like imagine people being like. You're gonna say you're hurt and you're gonna leave the olympics with us tomorrow on a plane in. If you don't do this there's gonna be some real trouble waiting for you on the other side That's terrifying that is terrifying. Yeah and Yeah let's just terrifying and there. I saw this really interesting thread. That i'd probably bet travis won't find interesting at all but it was. I'm i feel really safe. Assuming it but Let's see let me pull it up. So it was from sports insider at sports insider and it was basically based off of this interview with he thorpe. He's an australian gymnast and it was talking about how in men's gymnastics. Travis is already looking at his phone in men's gymnastics the men don't leap and aren't judged on the artistry of leaping it's tumbling only assembly not so modern. Men's this is from the thread. Modern men's gymnastics emerged in the late eighteenth and early nineteen centuries to prepare men for soldiering. Women's gymnastics had a different agenda to prepare women for their roles as wives and mothers by teaching elegance flexibility and good posture and so in men's gymnastics the things that they receive credit for doing our about strength or balance. But there isn't a lot that they get credit for in terms of artistry which is You know women's artistic gymnastics a lot of it is leaping in quarreling and smiling when the sport settled into its current form in nineteen fifty to the women were left with four events to the men six in early versions of the women's code of points. Phrases such as harmonious flexibility and feminine grace appeared So like the stupid like to point my toes and smell after is where women get can lose points and mendel yet. But i think mostly it's about leaps. It's not more as much about smiles. But it's the same vein like jumping up in the air and doing splits jumping up in the air and switching your legs from one split to a second. Let's called switch leap. you're basically for your floor routine. Yeah does that make sense to you trying to so even on floor exercise where there is overlap. There are different demands for men and women. For example simone biles proven herself equal to men and tumbling but must also add dance and leaps on top of the acrobatic requirements. So that stupid stuff. I hate this stupid should she. She just like eighteen quadruple backflips. But oh yes yes to roll around on the mat for ten seconds to hit that that specific thing near taking the opposite stance of what i think. He's trying to say which is if men were able to gain points for dancing and leaps. How beautiful could the men's gymnastics be. What what. I thought was such an interesting point about this is that the implication is an. I believe this is something thorpe himself said. Is that influence in. Sports should be unit directional so men should influence the way women do their sport but women can't influence the way men do their sport and he thorpe is saying if i watched simone biles and i see her. Do a gorgeous leap. And i'm like i want to be able to do a leap like that. Why does is it. Seen as negative if a man wants to imitate some of the aspects of the women's Game i guess young. i'm i'm here. Yeah and so. I just thought that was really interesting. Insure auto and i think it had started with. I think the men were showing off on instagram videos of the leaps that they could do and people were like. Isn't it crazy that if they do this and competition they won't get credit good also allow another spot for it to the sport to grow and someone can do more things and be better. I like the of of. I don't think i've ever heard somebody say it. So plainly that like we really don't let women's sport influence men's sport. We always see it as like well. The are just trying to be like the men and even just subconsciously. That's a negative connotation to have with women's sports. They're not trying to be the men men could learn something from the way the women do it. Not that it can go both ways. The only thing i can think of is in the college game for basketball the women have gone to quarters and the how the fouls are for going to the free throw line for team fouls and everyone has said the past few years that the men should adopt what the women are doing. But that's about the extent of ago and women's leg women's sports are always viewed as you're learning and taking things from men's sports in order to better your sport but it's never the other way around where men can't ever look at a women's sport and say well they do something really well. We should adopt that. It's always women are supposed to be modeled after whatever than men are doing. So i support. He and i think we all should. Because i know we all talk about gymnastics a lot. So it's one of those things with the olympics gymnastics right now. So it's like. Wow we've gotcha. Let's talk about this aspect of gymnastics all agree on it and we'll move forward and let everybody know today's podcast is brought to you by. And if you're not going to let the men do it then the women shouldn't be judged on adult bs. Yeah that's fair. If gymnastics a sport where tumbling is all that matters and let's make the university of side. Yeah you decide. Nobody can be neutral. Okay more news in a second but today's podcast is also brought to you by better help. So travis how would you like me. Tell the people about better help. How are we gonna follow up nasty. Lucan because i was talking to a person read it who i. I don't know they know who they are sure that they know who we mean ordering from cheesecake factory. Menu can't decide what to go.

The buffalo bills signed quarterback josh allen six year extension and the deals worth hundred fifty eight million dollars with one hundred and fifty guaranteed a one for sports. That aren't olympics. So my reason being though is at three forty five. His agent called and said it was basically done. If i'm josh bro. Hami till it's done first of all. Yeah you could have just waited a couple more hours second of all. It's not even done yet. So now like i got my hope sub. But it's like they're still. Could something could happen now. It's three forty five homemade so go to sleep with you. Tell me that. I'm going to have one hundred fifty million guaranteed dollars like come on but like i. I can't do this. Yeah basically done is weird. If you're just wake me up at four when it's done pregnant were like yeah. Well that's a weird comparison to make but a so that it's like. Don't call me to tell me that you just heard back from the guy. You're waiting for a favor on in. You're like i think it's gonna call me when the favors bills signed it yet. Let me know when we've crossed the finish line. Unless i mean if we cross the finish line at three forty five. Am and a friday. That's totally fine colleges. Don't wait wait till me. It'll be a little bit definitely. Don't wake me up to be like we gotta wait a little. It's wake me up when we knew what i was doing. I was sleeping so maybe he needed like a social security numbers something. Maybe he needed to design stuff. Each of has that info. Yeah well maybe you lost it. You know it's not safe to write it down also down on different pages. One hundred and fifty million guaranteed the first thing you buy going to be honest nothing. I don't i don't spend my money that much. I don't think but i guess car. Yeah we'll have more than i ever thought i'd have and when i got the track was like i don't know bank. Put it in the bank. But i a car our purchase. I think i would. I would buy a house. And then i would also like i would buy a house and then make sure that you know if my parents needed anything. If my grandparents did like i would. I would donate. Jj pick it. 'cause i like marmon everything. What's going on with certain nations. That may need financial relief. And i'll try to provide that to them. I mean if you want me to go absolutely crazy surabaya super ya hair. She was our capitalist between. It'll be fun adventure around. I'll have kate with me.

I don't have to like clean. i'd buy like a place. I can go. That isn't here chef. Yeah i would. I would get a second. Microwaves because college by a regular science fridge like a full fridge with an icee. I would maybe get myself. Not at twin bags. God will i actually act like one of my goals in life is to have to microwaves because that always making frozen food goals of a twenty two year old always complicated math when i wanted to do to like a main like a frozen main dish and like an appetizer side dish. I can never figure out like the combination of fire them at the same time. That's the whole point. you make the appetizer. You eat it. You make the dinner. Sorry i meant side dish like mainsail. I get it microwaveable got it. I love this so much. I'm just picturing him po. Poking four foles in hungary man and also in a side of like mac and cheese. That's a really good one but yeah that's one day in life live in the last. You could buy chef also jeff. Y'all some fancy. Kitchens have two ovens or like nope i want to microwaves took. No i believe in you. That's the thing. I like about this goal nathan is. I could see you achieving it as soon as next year to. Microwaves is well within your reach. You could achieve this when this podcast is over. You could go achieve the goal to go to target for that. Don't put that much pressure on. Don't tell me has to go. Cheap guys you don't have to achieve your goals today. Which is a fifty dollars really. Depends on if it's a good one or not the fact that you have no idea how much a microwave is a lot sixty bucks black and decker for sixty dollars for seventy second microwave today. Let's get this done for you. I love this. Katie nolan and i with one hundred and fifty million. I would give it out to a bunch of nathan's who all they really want is a second microwave. You know things go to school and all right so what did you. What did you take away from. Your internship will make my dreams come true. What was that second. Micro microwaves better. There's nothing better than when somebody in your social circle expresses one of their dreams and it's something that you can help with just like hell. Yeah dude dream. let's get you that. Microwaves today it's this isn't difficult. This isn't like change your life type stuff of like. Oh we've gotta get you this and this now just get you that microwave and also make sure you've got a good What's it called when the power goes out because you run too many. Microwaves at once. Make sure that make sure you know where the boxes switches makes yet. When something goes wrong. I just push them all. I don't know why i don't know anything. Why am i allow. Dona so yeah. That's why i put the story at the top. Yeah that's a good story that to. Microwaves a this. Is the coffee story. Ut's so poorly. At the beginning of the podcast. What is it travis. Let us have it. What we've waited this long for dan. Campbell is back at it again. Lion's head coach dan campbell. Who once famously said that. What they were gonna eat people's kneecaps some kneecaps. You wanted to bring you wanted to bring like a lion to practice and actual lion if axe body spray. Where a person. He revealed his morning coffee. He gets to vinci size. Pike place roast from starbucks and large for any of you out there who just don't understand what that means though. Isn't that what the venti stands for. I believe it's a big drink. And he has two shots of espresso each of them so we get to large coffees and that adds to shots well east so this is a question. I don't know if we know the answer to how many shots of no but you don't they don't come with never mind i was gonna say when you get like a lot and you add shots to it when you get a venti law tae. Isn't it like already a couple shots. So at some point it being event he coffee and the amount of shots he adds to it the shots because they have to go up as the size goes up. You understand what i'm saying. It will be crazy if you got a small coffee and added to shots of espresso. Because there's only so much coffee per yet it'd be so it's definitely not ask shocking that he gets two shots of espresso in one coffee. But reading this this little factoid here one venti of pike place with two shots is four hundred and ten milligrams of caffeine multiply that by two. You get eight hundred twenty milligrams. That's a crap ton of caffeine prison clinic up to four hundred milligrams of caffeine. A day appears to be safe so one of those coffees. He's already over four hundred at four ten. That's roughly the amount of caffeine and four cups of brewed coffee. Ten cans of cola or to energy shot drinks. You can drink ten sodas and a day probably the sugar. People would probably say no sugar free. Yeah but then you don't wanna drink that much aspirin so much caffeine. He must be just wired of. Coffee is four hundred milligrams. And he has eight hundred twenty. So he's essentially having or so comes guessing he can't function without it at this at some point. Yeah it's like at this point it once you start drinking coffee like that. Your body is going to become more dependent on it. It's not gonna give you the same kick it was given you before just letting you maintain your he's gonna have. I bet if he goes too long without coffee gets headaches. The having gone so in sixteen years. Wow that is too much. And now i know. That's tough to say about dan campbell. A man who's usually very even keeled. But i'm gonna say that's too much dan campbell. Turn it down. Dan campbell for your own health please. You think dan campbell. Listens to joe rogan. I bet he does very listens to three episodes right. It's just feels right. They just go hard when you think you're going to quit. Don't quit keep going. That dan campbell go to a beach. Sipa water that. Dan had water. I'm wondering well. Maybe he drinks. I mean i don't know he's around athletes. So you probably hydrate speaking a witch. Everybody take a sip. Go ahead if you've got water near you take a sip stay hydrated move of my glass. Ought to go same out. What's going on with michael thomas. So the he recently had surgery on. I believe his ankle that he was dealing with injuries. Last year sean. Payton came out and said that he you would have had it sooner. I believe there's been some back and forth. And then michael thomas posted a thing about do. You're lucky i. I'm not saying what the truth is or something and he got. He got surgery when he came back. And the argument was that he should have gotten it done in the off season. Because now he's gonna miss they might have to put them on the pup list. He's gonna miss at least six to twelve chains. Slut tweet change the. I don't like being called the pilots. Because i like to think of myrtle at the top of the pup list. Yeah i like to think of cute little puppy. Yes but here's the deal though. The public has usually a bad thing in football. And why should pups be associated with bad things. Wow okay i mean if i hear you i see you but i feel like it's called a public. You wanna call it the catalyst. Yes i do actually. I'm just kidding. Just a joke dogs. I'm sure they're not. Though so. Michael thomas might be a catalyst. Yeah gold so he. The comparison i saw to it was the i'm not gonna ruin my summer From west dance of like not going to ruin my summer not gonna get my Surgery during my offseason. I got hurt on company time. So i will. I'm company so i will recover. Yeah exactly. I am so Didn't they sounds expected to mess anywhere from like the first few weeks to like the entire season and anywhere in between either is for a team that's running into the worst cap issues And the just the fact that they don't really have much on their team And michael thomas being one of the greatest receivers. This is a bad. This is bad but then yeah like you said today. Travis i think he tweeted Like you can make me look like the bad guy. As long as i don't tell my side of the story essentially those aren't it's not dead quote but it was something like that and this is in nineteen signed a five year ninety six million dollar contract to. Yeah so it's going to be hard to unload if that was something that you wanted to do. I'm trying to you know what i do. I just always try to be like well. Where could he possibly be coming from that. This is makes truth. I wanted and it's like what is it about the team. You think he'd not saying that could what he say that people would be like. Oh i was gonna say maybe jameis winston throwing the ball is so your point there being that he doesn't wanna play for a quarterback that is jameis winston after having played for a drew brees. So michael thomas doesn't come back. I would say. That doesn't make me empathize with him. I would say. I guess it makes a little bit more sense but i wouldn't say it's the it's the doesn't make you look good. It wouldn't also say. I would say that if that were the case that wouldn't that wouldn't make him look like the hero for uncovering some truth about the team. I think it would just make him look a little bit more selfish. What if it's there was something with the medical staff on the same side hamble now basically reports say that michael talk michael. Thomas said he wanted to get second opinions From like other doctors. I'd seen something about that. So that's i think that's signs. Indicate that if he has something to say that he's not saying assuming that he's you know being honest when he says that that it may be something medical staff-related which is gets complicated. Because i i don't know about the controversies on that side. I just bet they exist and once you go down the medical side of things with Profession with anyone. He sporting professional college. Whatever the medical staff ultimately gets paid by the team and so while you hope because they are doctors and trainers whatever that they have the players health in mind. There's always that it just becomes a potential conflict of interest where we exactly there is biased. But there is an interesting an incentive of getting the guys back out there sooner and yada yada unlike. Michael thomas could come out and say. This is a hippie thing. I can't talk about it between your doctor. I so technically no. It's just an ordinary travis. That people understand what you're like other people can't once the information's out hippo. I have no. I can't violate hippo. i'm not a yeah. Well i could be. I'm just busy today. You know we'll try tomorrow. So that's michael thomas. That's it sounds like it's going fun got swimming. I gotta figure out fantasy getting back into fantasy focus. Don't do it yeah. i didn't larry fantasy football fun. No last year. And i and i was way out of a loop. I love fantasy football. The reason i don't finish football up money more is it was taking the fun out of the game for me. See that. I have the opposite reaction. I think that adds fun for me. Yeah it'll get there christina. It'll get there. It'll get to the point where you're like. This is now from it. i got it. I just. I'm enjoying it for now. Because it's giving me the incentive to watch all of the other games that i probably would have done for work related job titles anyway but I feel like. I have a rooting interest. Which is the whole point of fantasy. That's the thing is. I want to want bill. Watch a game in. If i don't perverting interest enjoy the great game for what it is but if i played bad. I'm now rooting for that player. In it i bet. Loss then affects my over. Well my overall being and i mad because i might have lost a fantasy and ultimately i was going to watch the game anyways choi so it's now bringing me down so i was like i. Also the most the most fun part of it for me was like the draft in the trades and once it got started in so i just stopped playing fantasy football. Okay i know. I totally see your point just like it for the opposite reason nathan but to your point a Like like you. I didn't play last year. But i wanna get back into this year and travis if that if that brings you a lot of pain that prime means you don't gamble either. Nope personal question. No gambling the legal where you are anyway travis. So that's against my me here in new jersey. I can gamble. All i want hip thing nathan. So please respect my okay okay. Thank you Leo massey is leaving barcelona and big soccer sad. Sad day day. There was this old man at a gate like crying holding his message irs easy. How long was he there for a total like say thirteen. But i i was gonna say like seventeen eb depends on what you're gonna go by. Because he's like started at like they're like when he was thirteen at the youth level. I think maybe seventeen full years gang. Why he's not there is like the crazy part. The of soccer the is twenty one years tiny one says a thirty four year old has been at barcelona for twenty one years became. It's all top goal scorer with six hundred eighty two dang good. He's one of the biggest names in international sports. he's arguably the greatest soccer player ever yes but arguably a year ago he wanted out of barsa this year. He wanted to come back but barcelona literally can't like he. He tried to take fifty percent pay decrease and it still wasn't going to allow them to bring him back in. Because of the rules with what a salary can be according to the revenue. They they need it. They need to get like seventy percent of their salary of seventy percent of what they're like revenue is and even with him taking a pay cut. It was still gonna be more than one hundred percent. I was going down the rabbit holes a day trying to figure out like figure out how it happens but apparently a lot of soccer clubs are just operating debt massive national debt millions and billions of dollars. It's and they just keep just keep accruing it because they need to keep their top player burs alone just signed. Joel guero don't they. They just spent a bunch of money on a bunch of people. That's why this was very confusing us future money. And that's why switzer's any sense this when things become about money my brain's just like i'm going to have a little nap. You guys figure this out. I have no ide future. Money does what does that mean it. Their spending debt. They're spending cap with alita dropped from. I believe it's six hundred million euros to two hundred million. It's so that's one of the reasons at barcelona madrid wanted. The super league was because of the immediate cash and one technica
