Ac like that you know bias towards the girls the Trans girl do because when you stand in your truth you never have to go to meet people where they are they will eventually come to you and if they don't you better off without them because I'm not going to we live facade I think it's disrespectful to women your mother your associate Aunty for us to say I was born in one apple just like a woman I don't think that we trying to figure out who we got a woman who she says we wake up trying to figure out what she says a we are you calling me a man you are and what does the tea points ballot because like Madison all the time she doesn't necessarily have the same mindset as some of the girls she embraces so sexual now all of the Trans Girls they want new brand new booze young Thai Budi none of those things go with me right now now booty no tight everything loose and falling ars and I told I talked to Craig about this a lot I feel like I'm excluded from certain arenas areas because we don't I don't speak the same language I don't speak the same oh I don't have the same idea in the same thought pattern is there and a lot of times they want you to be wet craig a mountain but always sending your hours we are the lgbt community segregated divided broken racist sexist ages all of it and we keep asking changed my formula. I know exactly how this works I know what this is I know that our fellas in the gay community straight community I know where for feathers of the black community for somebody else to fix US understand that they include us we have to include them I don't want their shit they don't like each other they shoot is that we can't open and it's not about oppo now or bathroom right to me I wanNA fight for equality for real we for gay marriage we fall fall fall for gay marriage I understand what you're saying flame about there being petty but it's also a battle and it's a battle it's a battle it's a battle because there are people that are really think about a game ended up getting married just because we had the privilege because we had the privilege not just because they really want they break up in the game fight over engine Christian draws in the at this current administration don't like how you look and you have dedicated your life was service you could have lost your life over there or lamb people lost limbs lost lives woman's Love is the closest we'll get to unconditional love on this because I believe the super loyal and they are logistic and for the love of this man just say I live in this great home or my kids a set for life we won't and this is the meaning us we won't we why people were offended by the word training because monopolized off the word training for years I didn't understand because it didn't you have such a relationship currently with women only transmit very masculine lesbian women gathering is it the Bush that makes you fit the twenty two I'm a victim of it and I'm also an attacker because at one point play I didn't understand twenty years of your life and military you've been overseas over in a correo where were they were fighting to terms or three times and now because nothing I hear you saying the same thing so both sides of it because you're not a monolith just because you all trans women and just because we're all black people that mean that we think alike on every issue oh I'm not I didn't come to choose to say I am on the forefront for the Trans I'm not sending on the battlefields of fight boss I want open doors that we don't even really has line lost their fucking man's shrapnel all kinds of stuff and because he man because you live your life a certain way you kick out the military you lose all your if it's a mad about that you make somebody called you a he or somebody address looked at you the wrong way and told you you could use this petty I get what we gotTa Pick Better Battles Profession I tell my son I love you and I'm and he knows that the the the is not the nickel work to love behind it was affect me but when I was looking at how many people lots of people I try my best even in our community not to say that I do my best gay divorce rate right now is probably higher than the games rate because especially with the gay me because me and are not loyal winded when ship for the devil's advocate do I do that when I say Nigga no nobody complaining about being called Nigger like their urine redo where they do it affected by that type of stuff you're going right back to what I said earlier we are not happy unless we're in a fight we can't keep asking for inclusion on wor and not fix on sheep I do think that there should be a fight on every place that is there is a problem I do feel you get what I'm saying and just because I'm a victim of that I'm excuse me I'm not a I'm killing each other because of whatever reason so here we come begging like CEOS at a circus for me see me see me see me accept me accept me you accept you done which before because what you're doing now this is all I'm saying we all make mistakes we were young we said things that we might regret it but I'm not gonNA apologize because hint one had any other I'm not disagreeing with what she's saying but I'm also saying that these things are also important for the people in the fat so yes speaks our community as a whole before we go outside asking somebody else to fix that shit that's in all areas thank you ms the last night of the damn girl please which says something earlier too about I don't think we were filming at that point but US says something about you're really interested in the issues they're really really but I do know better because I'm fifty four I'm not twenty one so I know better so do better when I can't especially when it comes to life yeah this is the thing that that makes me admire you a lot is because you stood on there and like me say that I've changed I just started there's word that was created by white slave way back in the day we as black people took back the power of that were calling each of a Nigga and we say it with love the children but don't apologised for what made you this person because that person made you this person period out there saying I understood not to have empty I'm saying don't you apologize for what made you this businesswoman all of that was learning this yes and you still alive to tell the story nobody checking before she pops up on the thing you you had this house before you get this podcast and before you got logo don't discredit what you have what means you take words and you give words power you want them to have in your life at that time yeah training had that power over you don't you apologize no it didn't have it Dan all you have to do is go through it you think you make a mistake you ain't made no mistakes everything you do gone already knew that you were going to do and the God that I serve the off every Yoga Yoga 'cause you'll guide them for don't produce love I don't know you've got I don't know who the hell you maybe worship and trump because trump my we also are black and we know what the the power of the word nigger of them break down the origin of the word nigger because I love that we have a place where we can discuss our differences and our likenesses make each other things because I'm not here to change your mind the way that I see that it could have been used in the militia but I I did not sister you can you can't re evaluate something and then look at it not somebody else and it affects them in a way that it was really it was detrimental to who they are and I have some type of empathy as a human being it'd be like you know what I'm not saying yes so this is where my problem is we always looking for a fight how about let's just make it work how about less you might not be here to change my mind I want to hear your views and I'm a student so if you're going to teach me sit me down to tease me don't though parade don't will hurt our sales and there won't somebody else not to hurt us and I've always said that I've had lots of issue Craig battle a lot when we when we start talking how's that for us as a whole science some of them yet remember I mentioned when I was talking about them kicking we lose jobs because you can how many sisters that she started out we're not here to tell us so all were guy deeper you you had no control over God's architect your mic was already done and why I agree with me baby when Miss Mary say okay it's okay for fuck that you see Mary said it

don't block me from working because you don't agree with my views I'm not saying anything harmful or to hurt you what I'm saying is how I feel now you can show me another way I'm willing to learn I in no way don't don't argue with you about the fact that you point out that there is a problem in the problems within I feel that that we we are self destruct nine I'm never going to be sick 'cause I made money afterward training but I what I'm saying I understood this I it may not have affected me but it affected is look the Bible if you break down the whole Bible and take away all of words it could be one three pages God is love period the been anything will self destructive as African American self destructive his LBJ people we just was self destructing to we will we who was at that time in my life I'm somewhere else now so they said when you know you better than ain't always shoe because I do some field but Thornton parade and blocking me from work and be no Internet and give them ten thousand people who don't like me that's not going to help me at all in fact that's going to enrage me and make me hate you really Basho that fund the Trans Woman because the Trans woman was was in early parts of my career bashing me all the time and now there's there's something out there always constantly the issues with transit gay and it'll be all this stuff because there are times that I their stories are because there's a story that I want to report on that I mean not because I don't Oh that's it you hit it from a Christian woman who cooks hope so they on TV to monitor we do people lose their jobs because let me tell us colony well guess what I'm saying like we it's just like there's a story that I'd like to cover why why did I even know I didn't know it was the same because they trying to get their voices to be heard I have a platform it but craig you understand what I'm saying no I I actually do I see both sides of it but I'm not on on it didn't help if you use it and now you apologizing for didn't it did because you don't apologize for something that you did in the past because you wouldn't hurt anybody that was that was your way you made elevate divorced now and

Git Mark Your calendars July the fifteenth you'd need to rush over there together as a community one says you said we follow up on the umbrella with Martin would not monolith but we follow up on this umbrella of people that get together and do some sheep wrong because there's an issue that needs to be did needs to be voiced and in that instance I would think that you should focus on the issue that needs to be voiced and not the person that's being effective but am I also still human beings who feel like bitch Yanni to watch which I'll do why y'all doing 'cause you never know who you need he's trying to erase but we get grades trump societies of this gay community they voted for trump why why would we part of the gay community three so we have to take everything but that's not what we're

you laugh flame his flame sing real real things but those are real real things to flame going up and down but you can tell me how to feel I'm a woman I'm a woman you might be a woman you might feel just like a woman go pee there are a lot of it is real things to meet you but there are things that flame is leaving out in the because I don't like to discredit women might WanNa try and say oh I hate fish how you you hit your mom do you hate your mother you when when I hit texts compensation yes it's okay for you to use the pronouns he and him with flame it but you know I I'm just trying to get my words right and I'm GonNa talk say Craig projects that when people use use it in a derogatory way or the negative way towards people that this is why we need flames voice we need Laverne boy we need Janet's voice we need my ain't nobody just me I'm your bitch of UK say Rhonda Me Bitch on what you can do straight people love lane flame has a platform or four steps into a platform ten times bigger than tes mess have the money and the wherewithal and inequality any relationship with a man I'll care what is the band in a relationship because we'd hostels that's the hustle with us the woman that that that that also is a drag queen there's many different layers to flame the as we need different voices because this is different burgess a different book it might be the same type story S I can't take can't tell you what we impersonate now they not in person they not a bunch of them doing now but we I'm personally woman and I'm not taking nothing for my transfer doc but it is different so different experience different experience will what you just say matty this is it all rose to would like that type of conversation perception voice yes they feel like well she said we and we just see what we want so we wanted to operate and have a margin burning down then rainbow flag in front of Somebody's house no and I don't care my roof repairs don't be on it and maybe it's off with his hand that's all I'm saying to we accept everything everything the including us it has their own views everybody has their own experience right but you see that the gate the straight community love me that wasn't always the case and I didn't change me too order mind state big flame has children massive LBJ don't some do but latte stone flame is creates a wall of separatists between all of us honestly Seton let me tell you what let me let me let me explain to you ask you that I'm going on what you see fall in line with them I stayed me became because it does because flame if straight person is listening and fighting for what's real the day Donald Trump went into office the lgbt she came down off who is Sane Day Donald Trump is erasing all yeah I was gonna say that was but sh- flame can't be the voice for transportation you can't be and she can't be responsible for carrying the moniker yes sounds good to them it sound like yeah because that's right it sounds these ways and you know people are GonNa shoot me up down here for this because I even more visible now with the work this coming towards her and if you're saying as a trans person that you're okay with he and that kind of thing that the world a whole responsible and I'm not saying no I'm not telling her to change her views of this this is why it is important for different variety of I'm not Chaldean awful because they rely on what a fat is he's still a Nigga I`Ma call him him what is this about a heated and study aw her or not or what it would have to because that's what they believe because that's what they already because flame is still and will always be in a header ak you because you're not a convenient and he didn't know that he just figured that we all was cool like because me and him have such camaraderie at the comedy club this is my friend they believe as she's okay with that right I need them to know don't you don't get don't fuck up like that you're getting that confused comedy world see you let what's his name Ah not accepting of that they lean towards someone make stated that she's not trying to be this is just as true but because you'll be because flame becomes the great big person yeah because Orr in that because just like we're Tyler Perry come about that's where we draw the line because that's not what we do because my opening is my look so with the win if he was to say that to me and I was cool with that do you know how many years I've fought to get in the mail comedian yes I felt for fifteen they wouldn't even speak to me in the Green Room I will go out and blazed the stage nobody would address me in the green pin of course it does just threatening but Craig you honest again I hear both sides and I was saying this but amongst my peers I got nothing so I this is why I embrace it because I wanted that for years and took a long time for me fighting to get there so you make an impersonal because Rodney did that don't mean that everybody's going to do that he was so comfortable me because we work as Comedians on stage Joan with each other he just loves his man look I I love my people but they are very disrespectful to girls you the gays Optima to the Trans the dish appear and I hear what you're saying because you're saying now flame is going off Netflix stop she's going into the stratosphere so she's GonNa be pain is if Romney Perry felt comfortable what about all the other string people who feel that comfortable they feel like do Hughley even though he had to respect you but of them are and I'm not talking about my mom and my mom folks we're not talking about that Oh tomorrow the people that slipping with already with these already they're very nigger nigger would be so what's what's the homeboy you lie she lets you okay and their jokes that I tell like that was funny but in her belief that it's hard to believe by the way and people that believe the way that she believes or or take that they can treat me that way because they because they believe we're going to be who they are I'm telling you think I went through all these twenty using the comedy world without the name calling the threats and I know they still had man that is wonderful to me it's love to me and it shows respect US support I know you don't see it that way because you live with trans life fully all the time as a trans woman I don't waited for fist-bump or penalty back good job flame gray said I never get so it's not that I go smash the stage and audience love me Ta which I'm very involved changing in the way you just said for Manohar restrict my children I change my children I hadn't changed society but for me it was it was fantastic but you so you not okay so now here's just walked by how do you not love a transplant twenty four seven when you have breasts the hook this was debate did you ever have a conversation with your kids to like monkey is stopped me and went out brisk for the first couple of years was strange because I'm a single parent and have in their lives what you to say that again was fine we're smart the CIA Caitlyn Jenner Caitlyn one you said before there something like that because my here's the difference with that I've been in my kid's life since conception I've never missed the date or a beat so I don't have to explain to me the people who are really comfortable with Trans experience may

Bob Beamon, Former Olympian

"Carello everybody you're looking live at fans Ville a college football utopia. With a rivers flow with ice cold. Dr. Pepper mission where every day is Saturday in everyone's a fan, even babies and the seasons never change because the only season is college football season get a taste of fans Ville this fall during a college football game near you Dr Pepper, the official Drake, a fans Ville grab some today. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy chef. You're going to be joined now by a man. I've known virtually my tire life. A man who fashioned one of the greatest moments in the annals of sports fifty years ago this week in Mexico City. When he broke the world long, jump record by twenty two inches jumping twenty nine feet two and a half inches two and a quarter inches shattering. The world Mark that was just over twenty seven feet. I'm speaking of course of one thousand nine sixty eight Olympic gold medalist. Bob Beamon Bob, thank you for joining us. Great to hear from you. And this is a special week for me. I know Bob, I can't believe. I mean fifty years. I was actually I was not quite yet alive, but I feel like I was alive because I grew up with stories of of what you chief in Mexico City. My father wrote a book about you a biography of you, which he titled the perfect jump. One of my favorite of my fathers thirty three titles and you guys had a very special relationship, and I feel like to some degree anyway, I was fortunate to inherit some of that partake us back to October eighteenth nineteen sixty eight. You had been the silver medallist year before at the Pan Am games in the long jump previously known as the broad jump in. You were certainly one of the favorites for the gold medal and you're competing against eager tear Ovanisian and Ralph Boston who'd won the golden sixty in the silver and sixty four. How confident to what degree did you think you could emerge with the championship in Mexico City? Whoa, Lee Pan Am games happened in nineteen sixty seven, and I think that that was probably. The greatest experience that I can have and being in the international arena, it was getting me ready for the big Olympic that that would be in nineteen sixty eight. So I I was learning one. It would take to stay on top or be in the mix of of getting that gold medal in the Olympic Games. Of course, I took second in the in the long jump and Winnipeg, but it was a great experience for me. I I it's kinda proved to help me down the road for sixty speaking with Bob Beamon who fifty years ago this week on October eighteenth nineteen sixty eight set the world long. Jump record shattered the world. Long. Jump record jumping twenty nine feet two and a half inches twenty two inches farther than any human had ever previously jumped. And in some ways, as many people have said since then, although there was there was some great competition. The eighties in the early nineties with Carl Lewis in Mike Powell who would eventually break your record in Tokyo at the world championships in nineteen Ninety-one. Jumping twenty nine feet four and a half inches. You still have the second longest jump of all time. I mean, did you do you ever try to put that into perspective? Bob, that here we are half a century later in only Mike Powell and only once in Tokyo. Is anybody ever. Farther? Well, I think this week I'm just really visualizing they. They're jump in terms of, you know, the fifty years that it has laugh at and in addition to that it, it's it's the Olympic record Meyer Olympic record, still stands. So I have, I've lost a world record, but I'm in. I was in Mexico City yesterday and they. They have the main Dame, the Olympic training center after me. So it just made me just feel so good that that the Olympic record still stands out two years when also that Mexico City or Mexico still has offered me my feets some fifty years ago, not Beeman still the Olympic record holder in the long jump at eight point, nine meters or twenty nine feet two and a half inches, and Bob bet sixty eight Olympic track and field team. We had a discussion about it on the show few weeks ago with the author of a new book about that remarkable moment in time in that remarkable team, you could certainly make a case that was the greatest team ever assembled in track would be hard to deny that the gold medal. Are you the gold medal for Lee Evans gold medal for Tommy Smith at two hundred meters gold medal for Jim Hines, one hundred meters, dick Fosbury in the high jump Bob Seger in in the pole, vault Al order in the discus. I mean we could go on and on the four by one hundred four by four hundred. I think did Randy mats and win the shock put too. Right. That's right pop. I mean, and then of course, you know what happened with Smith and Carlos in the black power salute after the two hundred meters. You yourself had a history going into these games of of standing up. To big, it's you were suspended when you were in college for refusing to to compete in a segregated event. Can you tell us about that? What happened was it was a movement to human rights. What were you know what the boycott would have dead. However, all the athletes blackout decided to go ahead on and compete in nineteen sixty eight Olympics. They. So I I wasn't going to my past the sixty eight games because you just really never knew if you get hurt or your interest with not goes towards making it a nineteen seventy two things. So I said, let me. Take advantage of of of what is going on now. So I decided I decided I'm gonna go no matter what. So what happened was that John and Tommy Smith. Made a protest with the black glove, and they got suspended. By every bud, the head of the International Olympic Committee it. So you know, that was pretty alarming and disturbing to have that happen to to one of our teeth. They to actually see these guys go through just nothing, but k, Bob wanna. You know, one of the interesting things about your story, of course, because this is the urine, which Brundage as the head of the International Olympic Committee. And previously the head of the US Olympic Committee enforced strict codes of amateurism meaning Olympic athletes couldn't monetize their successes in the games. They couldn't have get paid by sponsors. Even though of course, everybody behind the iron curtain was innocence of professional being paid to compete in their sports. You know that uneven playing field. So you had to go pro to make money after you broke the records, he, you didn't jump va. Very much in official competitions after the record. And you never again jumped twenty nine twenty eight or even twenty seven feet in competition. If you'd be able to dedicate yourself the way that athletes now can because they could be professionals and make a lot of money while they can continue to compete in events such as the Olympics and all the track and field events in Europe. How far do you think you could have stretched your record? I probably would've stretch my my competition. Here's I've probably be trying out for twenty twenty. Now. But, but I think if we really look at and and I know that you follow us, you know, through through the data that has. Has come up was that Adidas, Puma began its major fight of who what athlete was going to wear their shoes and how much they could get out of each of the athletes that would wear issue and went to go metal. It began the fight of how of marketing really started or athletes making money. So you were in the middle of all that you were wearing both their shoes? Absolutely. I war a war primer and the preliminaries and Adidas in the finals. So I wasn't. I couldn't. I couldn't make money, but they gave me. They gave me at least twenty twenty five fares shooting. As early for looking at it today. I think the young athletes today would be laughing, so hard. And what had happened with me, but it was truly the beginning of of what they saw that athletes could endorse shoes and products of each of those company. We're speaking with Bob beam in the nineteen sixty eight Olympic gold medalist in fifty years later, still the Olympic record holder in the long jump at twenty nine feet two and a half inches. That's eight point, nine meters on the metric scale. But before we let you go, it's just an honor to be speaking to you, particularly this week on the anniversary of one of the great feats ever in sports. When you think back about that moment in time in my father was always fascinated about about this moment. Always fascinated him in one of the things that interested him was your personal story, which is so rich and I, I. Would I would ask our listeners to go look into it more more than we have time for right now, but you you, you found this perfect moment and you were just a kid at the time. You were twenty two years old. This perfect moment. No one could have even imagined you jumping this far or anyone jumping this far, you kind of destroyed the event for a while. What is it like to achieve a certain kind of perfection at twenty two and and have that. At the center of your life for so long, very happy about it. You know, they've also included in the dictionary a turn. That they use called beaming with. So you know, every every moment with chick Yuli right now, I'm just really thankful that that people remember me fifty years ago. It's certainly been a a wonderful journey Bob Beamon. It's always a pleasure to speak to you, sir. Congratulations on all the celebrations of the anniversary of that spectacular feed in Mexico City. Fifty years ago this week still the Olympic record holder still to second longest long jump ever in competition official long jump ever in competition. Bob, Hope we get a chance to see you soon and speak to you again soon. Thank you for coming on the sporting life. It's my, it's my project. I'm Jeremy shop and you can listen to new additions of the sporting life every Saturday and Sunday. Morning on ESPN radio and ESPN app beginning at six AM eastern time.

They don't call me that it's just like the people in in the business. They call me that. But everybody calls me, Madison a mad, easy or medicine. Mattie soul. Miss Hinton hidden. If you always know that you had a big long, guess it didn't know that. I knew that. When I how did you know that in the face? Didn't slap me in the face. But I was swimming in the pool, and this is when I was young. Yes. Because I did start out as a boy, ladies and gentlemen. I did you heard it here. In front of I had tears because I was an escort at this whole sand for table salt. He stamps for too much. Toge out before. Swimming in the pool like about from a house of all boys. And my my brothers. Have I have three brothers and my keys were like, my brother. We all lived in one house. Honey, we were not poor. But we were not rich. And you know, we survived off of family, and how many people was in the household. Total was six boys. My mom. My husband and so six three Brady bunch. The. A black Brant. Yes. Here's the story of which name Brady. And we were we had a pool of ground before Hurricane Andrew above ground poo poo. And he was like look at it. Look look look at what? Oh. You know, you have one this is not that you're skinny dipping skinny I was swimming in it just came out of the pay got stuck in the filter, and you can't keep their brother down in doubt as you. Well, my down. Now, I think because I heard girls tell me that my brother has caught up speaks long. And I'm like was he bigger than me? You know? I think there's so gross. I would say like if you have a big dick you're of destined to do porn. That is true. You know? But some it's it's not about doing porn. It's about porn is business. People think that people like to fuck fuck. And now there are some bitches like the fact, but I'm not layers the porn as an excuse to excuse. Okay. I listen, I support that. Well, I mean, that's that's what you like. But I am an extreme businesswoman. Entrepreneur new opinion. Media balls you travel. It was it was it a causing because I know for some trans women and people in men that there's a lot of things -iety when you present yourself publicly such and pornography is a lot about reveal your body and making yourself vulnerable because you have any executive about that. Well, yeah. Because sometimes I'm nervous about my weight, my weight fluctuates, sometimes your weight was more of an issue for you than being transgender China transgenders the best thing I can ever be. If you transgender, and you have not kept last off that bitch crazy. By catalyzing must capitalize. Honey, you are a work of art. You are a gift from the headache. Now, some of them are bricks, and what are you gonna do if your pussy up, Honey? Pussy then takes hormones one takes woman's classes. Honey, in the mind yourself in your mind that are due looking woman on the feel like a woman on the ends up on the outside. It's not displaying. So I need to take the necessary things. Now, I do understand that everybody does not have the finance financial resources to do those things or the willpower. Right. So that takes a lot of energy to transition. It does some people just don't transition 'cause it's too much of an effort and exclusively. Yeah, it's very costly. So do you do have bricks that are that are out there that that that look exactly like bricks and stuff like that? But you have to take your time and your transition we want to transition overnight. I'm guilty of it myself because I have such a long backstory, I'll give you a piece I used to work streets longtime ago, I'm about thirty years old. So I have a long history of along life history. You said black doesn't crack black don't crack, Honey to Horton, pale stale. Yes, it doesn't pay. Stale and black don't crack you heard it right here. Radio show, but I used to this was long long time ago. And I got a big ass and big hips and stuff like that. Because in Miami. It was a competition. It wasn't about being pretty it was about who can stop the car. Everything was based around survive. You were stopping these cars because you had this you were as a prostitute on the street and you had to eat. So if a girl has a bigger ask you a man don't see your face first. He sees your. Nice. So if he sees a big ads going down the street he's gonna pull over like, hey, what's up, you know about? So I did get caught up into the whole silicone thing or whatever. Trying to rush mattress or whatever. Even my body is my body is not hard. Okay. My body is like volume tone. Yes, you know, silicone even though. I didn't do it overnight. I still like a pumping part part. Is there some moment in Miami who just got arrested because she was pumping people, and they die. Oh, you talking about debt shes? Maybe I don't personally I actually actually have had an experience. Yes. What happened? Well, I mean, you know, and this is a no way any shade, Tim is debt or whatever. But you know, I have I have a little scarring little just little bits of starring whatever. But it was a life lesson for me, you know, me being older than her. I opposed to have known better than dealing with the under the table situation, especially with someone so young and don't have any medical experience and and stuff like that. I should have had the thought of. Okay, Mattie, you know, better. But it was me saying Chinese similar a s because of the year in the moment, grow, the Home Depot and get yourself a caulk gun because that shit is going to fuck you up you up. Go war with some medical grade silica. Yeah. And some girls have it some of the pumping doctors do have it. You know, some of them just literally used Home Depot ship girl zero. And she'll fuck you out. I mean. Yeah. Phidias put I think she was using. It was mineral it wasn't it wasn't. Now, let's vouch and say that it was mineral oil. It wasn't the first time you got injected with silicone. How did that feel say shit? Like the sensation was like it felt like someone was. Peeing on you? It's. The way. Way. It was it was running down the leg. Or anything? No, okay. It was running running through my. I was so scared. I feel like UP Japan. I felt like that. I was I didn't wanna die. Yeah. Sometimes that's coking break off. All right long, your body reacts by heating up fever, still scant associate. I was nerve. I I got pumped when I was about nine eighteen nineteen years. This is old so housing, but I wanted to do. And that's the big problem with with the transgender women. We want to do it so bad. We would take risk because everyone overnight what to overnight you wanna be a woman at all costs at all costs. You wanna have that you want to be perceived by the public? Yes. Finnan and women have curves. Yeah. So all you ain't got no curves. Your man. People women coming all shapes and sizes just being a mess. Please. Please, please. I'm a barrel of fun, Honey. So don't take anything I say when I take some of that shit. I say. Are you are you sure you're tasting people and be like? I am feminine. Because I mean I clock down to. Oh. But it doesn't matter. See it. I've come to a point in my life where I've been through enough life experiences to understand that those people that are not paying your bills or those people that don't have any affect over your total will be are irrelevant. So they can call you step across. Stand across the street and commun- may have fifteen times on as long as they not calling me broke the when they start calling me broke. Then I'm gonna get. I think that's at the core. I don't want to bring this up again. Because I think we kind of like talked about. With all our guests this past season, but the controversy over repulsed drag race clocking challenge and the use of the word shemale and the backlash transgender bloggers head, and then your video kind of video went crazy went viral. And at the core of all this discussion. I think is like not calling somebody what they don't wanna be called. Right. And I I'm not sitting here condoning dates okay for, but it's just like, okay. They've called it so away. And so what I add to that conversation is I say, you know, as game in we have been really really good about reclaiming the word gay and even the word faggot. I hate that. Now that word I hate. But we've in some senses like it doesn't really bother us that much. Phagocytes when when Alec Baldwin used people there was an outcry against that. And so the whole thing with the shemale is like most of us gay men or like get over girlfriend. It's like, listen, I embraced my slur words usually to, but that's not for that's not for us to make that decision. And I didn't want to make any suggestion in any way that they were not supposed to be offended. But my problem was they were questioned my questioning my validity as a trans woman because I was not offended. Oh, you must you must identify with the game because you're not offended by the time. She mail. I'm like bitch kiss my ass because let me tell you. What term I don't associate with Honey broke not don't associate with. Don't go. So she with homeless, I don't associate with those types of words. So don't think that because I didn't get offended because S H E M A ale was something that was displayed on a on a very popular show. Did not offend me. And the word shemale or it's or tranny does not offend me. If you got on Twitter, and you search shemale you'll see all this hate all these assholes a lot of haters. Ooh, girl. You're broke. Get on Twitter. You. Nigger and cracker. And and baby words like that like words that have been have been like onto opposing size for years. Those words are are. We gave them power black people used the term nigga. Now, we took the power out of the word. We took that back. You know? I don't condone that either. I don't think that we should be using that term because we know where it stemmed from. We know the harshness of some of our our ancestors last words, they heard was dad nigga you understand what I'm saying. So tranny is not as not an extreme term to me because okay, I am a trained. But I'm not a nigga. You understand what I'm saying? I am a trans woman. But I'm not do referred to transplant as tranny. No, no. Like most of the women. I know dues that we in private conversations. Yeah. We talk if we're out we say, you know, she's a transforming or her name. I'll just say her name about being respecting. Yeah. People you know. And if you're coming from a place of respect or you're paying the price of a reverence. Well, I mean, we all go sit around rupaul a tranny. But we say we say tranny. I mean, we just having general conversation. What I'm saying? Like, you have people don't understand heterosexual America. Only sees black and white. Okay. If they know what you were born. I don't care how beautiful you are. They say Maine or tranny or shemale, they just that's what they what I say to people like you is that you were born to be an ambassador to bridge these worlds together, and you're doing that. And and for to Ripon, God bless rupaul. I love rupaul is like I want to see you be the person who brings us together. You know, like rupaul can do that. He has that power. He has that power. He he has such a strong influence like, but I think this kind of this controversy kind of scared him a bit or. Hurt his feelings taking it personal. I don't think he's afraid of the situation. I personally think that he liked which I don't get to have that. I don't have time for. I don't have time for that. Like, I'm such a positive everybody say love. Yeah. Everybody say love love him. But it's hard to say love when you're still have hate in your heart. You know, not that he has eight in the heart. But there's a lot of unresolved anguish and pain. You just won't you just like for him to say. Yeah, I think so because he's so powerful, and he's just been very cryptic about it. People that are outraged like, you know, the animal trust that rupaul will do this. Yeah. I trust in you know, how the secret over the secret proceed as if this change will happen, and it will happen. You'll be in season seven. I mean, he could even come sit. Ooh care, we got room mail. It would be like it's just now when they say, ooh, girl. I'm like where where's the Xi MU? Yeah. Yeah. It's like. It's like. Hey, girl. You got a secret message from rupaul or hey, girl. It's a little Tele granny. So great with catchphrases come up with stuff. You know, having the same thing over and over again gets a little 'cause logo edited. I don't think we're all to wonder edited it for logo fixed. Yeah. They're like you fix this. And they're like, I'm not gonna fix that. Let me tell you. I say all sorts of stupid shit on the show. And I regret it. And I wanna at it it out, but it takes time to find that shit and pull it out, and then reapply. Came from your heart at the moment. Sometimes we speak. What what how we feel at that moment. You know, and that doesn't make us bad individuals. That's just how we felt at that moment. Von you feel. That you made a porn video dresses Michelle Obama giving a guy wearing Obama mask blow job. Honey, like the first lady. The video tumble of duty of the firm. Volley? Well, Honey, what was the call Evelyn? What did I call it a video? It was called Oval Office. It was called Mr President. Mr President is thought I was to get some real bad backlash from that. You know, what I'm saying that video that that video and DVD actually got nominated for most outrageous scenes something for award. I'm kind of pointing Michelle and Barack set around and watched it. Listen, I'm gonna tell you something you said a copy of. Have the secret service women? Guys are fine though L. Yes, come in, you, I? Coming together. I mean, you people don't understand porn is porn really is in. Everyone's everyone everyone whether it's people have secret stash or and I watch porn will you better baby. Very often though. I think it's so what was your first time lake. Were you nervous on a camera? Yeah. You're saying has you. I'm never nervous of anything. Like now that my careers changing around. I stand on a stage in front of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people, and I'm standing there and not just come out of. Jess god. Honey, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, whatever come to my to my mind. Like, I I don't have any fear anything 'cause I've been at death death, excuse me death's door many times. And I'm like these fucking people. Like if I ain't that hundred gonna kill me. That's what I think a lot of new performers don't realize the audiences there to see you win triumph. Yes. And once you embrace that it's like it's like to come to see people that love you and people that hate you entertain them both and make them pay hail. Transition out of out of the sex work into film and then into becoming a personality now. You just you just do it. I mean, you you. I people say, oh, well, she does porn, and she's a this. I get people with that negative stuff. And I'm like, well, Honey, you know, I have to peel to everybody. There's the man that Jack soft, and then there's the man hunted wants to laugh, so do you think that they actually the porn past actually kind of helped your career because it's like you're already a recognized. I mean because when I started doing things like men were contact me say, Mattie, I just wanna tell you. I'm so proud of you. I've watched you grow as the person, I've watched you blossom from a small flower to eight a large tree, and you you're very strong. Now, you you have a voice right now if you were tree which tree would you be oak tree? Answer. Lack? Did you? Very Barbara baba ball. Hires? Yeah. Gradulate Barbara Honey on you know, gracefully walking away from the view. And yes, funny. She's one foot in the grave. He's not gracefully walking. Why she's using stroll Walker? She why does somebody said they fired her didn't fire. She had a owns that. She owns still these. Yeah. And we'll continue to and she knows his. She's a great judge. Well, tour there's never a farewell come a bit. When Oprah that. She was ending the Oprah Winfrey show that while you still interviewing people. It's called the next chapter the next chapter. Yeah. And you know, in some ways, I actually kinda liked seeing Oprah getting out of the studio and going to people's homes, and yeah, she used to do that old show where she just show, but people's house, what's for dinner. Let me now. What's the next chapter for you? The next chapter for Madison is to be on love that word you use it in ambassador. You are what I like to do is I like to live my life open and public. So that so that trans women who have went through similar struggle struggles. Like myself can see that. There is a way out. There is a way there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It is just all you have to keep on the path. We're kind of conversation is you have with a park Merlo. She was a guest on our podcast, and she was one of the people that was really kind of calling rupaul out on the shemale dates. She was really she didn't like a lot of things that I said because she felt that I was a supporting a abuse against trans women and verbal abuse. And and miss 'gendering trans women, and I explained to her very softly because I don't fight big big wars with big words and books and all that I told her, ma'am. Each one of us have our own life. We have our own struggle. We have our own path. That is yours. This is mine. It's okay for us to disagree with each other on certain situations. I I haven't walked in the shoes that she walked in. And what you feel about trains tranny. And all these these words, so I haven't walked in that the way you walk in. I've walked in this. And this is what I've done. This is the way I feel when I speak I speak and people that relate to me agree with me people that don't agree with you. It's okay. There was Malcolm X. There was Martin Luther King. There were people that they were on the slain, Malcolm X and who's the miam-, Malcolm X? Okay. Kind of like, you know, in some way. Do you consider yourself the radical, and she's the conservative or well, I mean or the mainstream and the and the extreme I mean mainstream has means nothing to me because if you don't have she has a lot of people, she writes for the post, right advocate impose, and I I took my hat's off to anyone any trans women. In the words of Laverne, Cox, any trans woman that has a presence in the media. I applaud and my hat's off to them. Will they say that stuff about me, probably probably not? But I have a lot of influence over people a lot of influence in the media. Just just start right now. I'm listening to soldier boy and Nikki Moniz song. Yes bitch. Yes. Now, you know, looking at my videos on vine and all this stuff. I was saying. Yes bitch. Yes. And then you got all these straight people remaking my. It's just a part of pop culture. So they can't say that. I don't matter. What I'm saying? Have I stepped my pussy up in in the way that I try to put things out in universe. Yes. Because I'm really coming to find out that there are people that really value. What I say, they've value my opinion. I have to say, Mattie. Okay. Let me think about this. I before I released his into that miss fear, or whatever. And there was some things that Parker termi all she asked me. And I liked this question. She asked me she said Madison at she really tried to put me on the spot. So let me ask you. This wish she said let me ask you a question. So do you think trans women are? Really women. I said. In the mind. Yes, she said, do you believe that trans women are really women? I said in the mind. Yes, I do believe that because gender is identity genitals sex. And what does she say to you after that? She's got I wish I wish I would have saved the tweet. What I think she said something like, okay? Well, you don't think that they could physically be this and the other and I was like, ma'am, I'm sorry. I'm from a religious background, maybe because maybe because I have religious influence the bible says he made Adam and eve, that's what the bible say they've done cat scans on on brain scans on transgender women before they even transition, and they have the different brain patterns. Okay. Well, societas with the gender. Hey, and I don't I don't dispute that physiological difference between a transgender woman before transitioning and a cyst gendered, man. Well, maybe hey, I follow him falling another category. I don't know. But I think there's same thing like in. In the mind. The mind the mind is a part of your body still. Separate those two. But. It is. But my thing she asked me, and that's the way I answer the question. I don't know if she thought I was gonna come back and say, no, I don't think I think the men, and I think people think that when I say, I was born male that I am a man that doesn't that doesn't make me like identify with as a woman. Now, tell you. I I I I did this stuff. And I have to be honest. If people know anything about me, I'm an honest bitch. Okay. When I first started transitioning, it was four six shoe will gratification. It was because I watched women I admired women being taken care of by men. And I would see the kind of man that I want. I couldn't game in couldn't do it. Because he liked other men. You know what I'm saying? I like the way that I man liked and loved the woman life and taking trips to the woman and took care of a woman. So my first experiences in transsexual was it was sexual it was it was it was sexual. But after I live the life. When I started to really say my God. Like, I'm really I really am. I'm Jay, you know, you come to my house. You wouldn't even think that there's a man that lives there, or or you wouldn't think man live there, you think all a whole white lady live there. Oh. Live there, you take a lady with a lot of house. Thank you. Thank you. I would like to live in your. On your pussy. Mike feed off. You compare your windows as wide as your hat. Does your back Honey, pick wide shoulders doors shut Madison the window open. Do you think that we're having so much of this question at this point in time? Because now, it's it's we are becoming more mainstream. We're becoming more mainstream. And thank you, Paul for actually displaying our lives on television. And you know, some people are gonna come down to me because I said there, but people look at us as gay like we were part of the gay community where the trans women are not they're going to see us. It's a part of the gay community. We have to take the platforms that we are giving an explain to people that want to listen, there's some people that are not gonna wanna listen it on its education. It's it you have to take that platform and make them understand. If they don't understand it's fine. Fine comfortably in yourself. Because it in yourself if you reach a small group of people you've done a mazing thing twenty fourteen it's been a huge year. I mean, you can't deny right? And part of it is as Laverne the rise of Lauren Cox as an actual. Working mainstream transgender actor actress producer. I mean, what I really liked to see is Hollywood casting transgender actors playing any role because I think the big criticism or the big debate is getting lost in the wanting transgender actor play a transgender character. And I said that's not important. What's important is that we wanna see actors working, and sometimes they discriminate people for all sorts of reasons. And unfortunately, transgenders one what I mean, we have to break the cycle. We have to break the cycle her. She has a producer now needs to start casting trans women and other role. Hello lana. Wachowski listen. I mean, she has the producer. She has that power. Not she has that platform. Now, she got the money, but she has that platform now to do that. Once you get to an area where you have a platform to to make a change do that do that what's your family's take. On your becoming an internet celebrity when my mom now. She's like, oh my God. I was in the grocery store and somebody recognized me, and I love you miss Mary. Get used to hunt because you ain't seen nothing yet. In your family will be like, why do you have to do those videos job at a telecommunications? My mom, actually, she did that I first then she started seeing my mom started researching me, really your mom was Google. Yeah. She started that can be dangerous. She knew I like, I don't keep never kept it. I did adult work. Never because you can't keep that type of stuff away from parents watch your porn vitim mom and dad when I did at wonder woman's kid. Did you see one to one? One mom died. That's get like I spun around in turn to wonder what my mother does. She say baby. I ain't never no wonder woman to be that fat and. That was that was the craziest seven and she says she says boo so creative like USO creative. You you have so many talents. Use your talents on something else. I was like, mommy, but you know, we all have sex you had sex to get me. I mean, that's what some people tell me. And probably they tell you is like, you're extremely intelligent person. And if you wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer, something, you could totally do it and make be rich. But I'm rich at what I did that stuff like I had money before the rest of why these girls are not just getting money. I had money before them. So nothing that they can hurt me because I've had money before them you did work for a lot of different. Telecommunications company. Yes. And you were saying that there were more concerned with which bathroom you're gonna use instead of your job performance. They were that's that was that was the biggest issue. It was which which bathroom where you're gonna use. Because one of those raggedy ass bitches said that they came in the bathroom hunter. And I was standing up in. And they heard me saying, yeah, I was like what why would I stand in the bathroom, and in a man's voice say, yeah. What what kind of ignorant? Well, she was trying to get you into trouble. She was, but how can you give me trouble for using the bathroom and axed human resources, ma'am? So you're gonna put me you're gonna make me use the man's man's room. And would if I'm standing in front of the stall, my panties all the way around my ankles, and my skirt pulled up, and I'm standing there. Just draining in high heels draining the laser and a man walks into line. Fuck you know, and I live in Miami. That you feel safest in what I told them was it we can either do this to easy. We have the hardy at my Joan Crawford on their own fifty one percent of this company. We can do this the easy way the hard way hunting. 'cause this ain't my first time at the rodeo bitch can either use the women's restroom or you can open up a bathroom specifically specifically for me in the back. Take your pick. They do. Well, they I wasn't finished. I tell them you can make a bathroom specific specifically for me in the back or how use the men's room, and and now allow one of those men to attack me Honey, and I can own shares of this company take your pick because they put your endanger. Well, that's the thing. I always say anybody's going to use the bathroom that they feel safest in because when you gotta take a shit tasha's. Take time. To fuck with anybody there to take shit. They end up opening the bathroom in the back specifically for me. And I and no shade. I don't know if girls I've taken full advantage of me being a trans woman full as I knights bathroom. It was okay. It was mine. It was but it was mine. People be have to be nice if they wanted to use your bathroom. I took the power there Meshal and there's a men's candy. No, Honey, they couldn't put a man in there. Just a summit up. We have to take the power a wave from the people that are, oppressing us. When we take the power when we take the negativity they give it give us, and we turn that into power. Then we are strong people we're strong. We have the take those words like shemale and tranny and turn that Chit back against them and stuff like that or whatever and call them. I think two things will happen. Either. People will. Reclaim those words. But that debate will never end where will forget about them like the word gyp for gypsy. Like, nobody knows what that means. Because I was like what the hell is there? You have to go into an to do some research and find that there's like slur words that just go out of use. And then there's some that are like I mean, that's why people love the N word because it's powerful. It is Phil tap. It's fill of electricity yet is and it's hard to let go those things it is. But we African American people are wrong for still using it. We are we wrong. And I'm like, you know, part of me is kind of like, you know. Words are just words they are. But it all depends on the force and energy. You put behind that word. You understand what I'm saying? That makes it powerful, you know. That's just the way I feel we we give it the power, by the way, we we give it is it a situation too. Is that we're trying to control the weather in the sense that like nobody really controls language languages in. Organic thing. We have freedom of speech we live in America. Yeah. This is America. If you look like a fuck, and man somebody's gonna call you fucking, man. If they think that you're trying to call you this going to have seen. Am I land free and over there? I've seen. Real women tranny. Seen. Have you not seen the bigger? Your ass is your now, a trendy if your asses huge your training, and there are some women that have naturally big ashes. And then there's some women that have unnaturally big area. I've been a Portillo's there's some big ass. Have seen the same doctors that we've seen now they have his gigantic asses. Then when they walk out in public saying tranny, are you a training or you do like vis-a-vis Yano like what's her name got into trouble on of who was that? That said she looked like a shot clock. Wilson Carney Wilson was on the talk, and she said that visa viane. Oh, the the mistress of the racist bath clippers owner, she's read as transgender to her and. Thought about Harker Carter pucker. She's her. Yeah. How can you? You can't get mad at somebody sees baby. You can't everybody have your is people. Don't see somebody may look at me and say, she looks nothing like a woman nothing, and that's fine to me. But. But. Look like one transfers it doesn't look like another transfers. And so what is what is? So what's your opinion of Honey dip, Honey tip is this transects worker who is suing Eddie Murphy for one point two million dollars. But we're not really sure exactly why. Baby. It's like I said at my last long. Okay. No, no Shay tiny deal because I don't know. Trying to get a great name Honey dip, isn't it's a it's a good porn name. Good hooker. Name a good back pain now church. No, it's not only did my Honey. You know, I just feel this is the way I feel these are my feelings and know Shay to miss Honey dip. Okay. But if you're listening, Honey, I see no shave you knew, you know, I don't know the relationship that she and Murphy here, I'm quite sure that there wasn't a relationship between her and Eddie Murphy, we as trans women have to understand these are in their mind. These are heterosexual men that are doing a down low thing that they're doing with us even if they publicly route with us in the car down down a street that nobody's on. They're still having a secret relationship with us you as a trans woman have to get that dough up front. They don't do. Right by real genetic women wouldn't the fuck makes you think that they're going to do right by you'll trans gendered s you gotta get paid. Don't give the whole before you got the gold. That's right. You know, when you deal with when you do these high end individuals because I'm quite sure he was a client when you deal with these higher clients. He's hiring individuals. You do you can't was when I was when I was escorting heavy you can fall in love with with with your John? You can't do that. You can't have an pretty women. Yeah. But Pretty Woman thought movie like in real life. She would have ended on his frying. Yeah. But you know, she she should've kept those jewels. And all that stuff because you already know the outcome of that. That's honey. That's a man that my dear is a man men are very I've learned see these girls. Don't do. They don't. They don't do porn. They don't they don't the I ne- we're doctors, and lawyers and teachers they don't know this out of the stuff because they don't deal with the dark, man. Okay. The man that come. To come with escorts and call girls, and this is the unfiltered man, you know, deal with the man that comes to you wanting your your vagina, your asshole European is your mouth, you know, that there from the door. There is an invoice at the door. You know, this stuff, you can't feel some kind of way when these men have access to a plethora of other chicks and other beauties and and other cuties and even she feels this year's promise things. He's in give it I mean, they all promise us like she's not the only one dealt with with with Eddie Murphy, and she's not having the wait a minute. I gotta say this sounds like idea. I have not touched Eddie Murphy. So. This lever. Honey what? Can you say some names? Tell you something I would never ever tell let me tell you. Why would never tell because the way my career is going now, I'm not gonna have my face dirty. I can't stand next to a person and take a picture because they think they're going to be involved in some type of scandal. What I love about rupaul. Is that rupaul is when he's up in drag and beautiful and stuff like that. He can take pitches from the likes of fifty cent all the way down to Barbara Walters, and it's defect. It's personality. He's he's who is there's no dirt on him. Like, our you know, he's he's going to put you out that child's. So it wasn't the president United States is what you're saying. No it was. No say to miss Honey dip, and I hope that I hope that this turns out to a great thing for her. Because the last girl they had an incident with Eddie Murphy mysteriously fell off the of a building and died. I asked rupaul point blank on this podcast. Did you or did you not go on a date with Eddie Murphy because there's tons of rumors? She's like, no comment. So that means you did not. They don't mean she did it just means like you don't wanna come on. Now, you can't put yourself in stuff like that being being a great figure like that because people feed into shit like this ogre she did. And like when trans women do stuff like that that to me pushes us back like that pushes back under the under the cover of our man, I can't fuck with the whole deals doing deals put me on blast. I only wanna be don't even come into room. I don't want to cast the girls like they say like I've been a room with comedians and other actors and producers and stuff like that. I've been in the room with these people, and I tell them from the jump. Listen, let me break something down to you. The lowest common denominator, darling. If you don't have Michael wings. You've got to worry about it. Okay. So we. We're only gonna do whatever business that we're here to do. Okay. And nothing sexual, but it's interesting because I think that you're in a difficult situation that everybody thinks that all your fucking every single one of your friends, you know, and as transgender woman in the public eye and celebrities hanging out with you the public's going to seem that you're having sex with that because the public the public public people are idiots my brother, I've brothers. So sometimes when they see me with my brothers, like I've had girls put my birth to decide that you know, that to me am I I really. We came out of the same hole. What do you think? On say salons JC is clear. Glad we get some real topics now. Elevator to get up here. Maybe he is. Now, there's only two things Honey that happens when yoga husband and Yosu when your husband is fighting either you'd until your sister that your husband been being air as she mad about their or Llosa's and your husband was fucking each other. What do you think really what are the two which one do things the most likely? Because he didn't really fight that like what we grab your leg. The rumor is is that she was dropping his name the at her friends into a party, and he was just like no trauma navy at people in your party to fight about came into my fam- fistfights with my sister over smaller shit. But did you see the tweet that was supposed to be a fake tweet? Oh, did they say something you you hit her? But she won't hit me something some tweet. It was do you think they're they're saying listen families fight? This is a private matter mind your own fucking business. I mean, I think it is. But there's they're public figures. So this shit going there should go fly right out. Reportedly paid a quarter of a million dollars for that video fish, do you see the what they made back? Dash was news in the middle of the night. Just like her album dropped. Do you think I mean celebrities might be able manipulate this to sell albums of why aren't you finding with us instead of giving us? Dropping a new album. Hallway, I'm going to make appearances and put songs out there. Whatever you know, what I'm saying. I'm gonna let my record labor do the rest and stuff I'm not gonna I'm not gonna use any scandal to try to sell anything. Because in the end is not going to give me that's the gaming toss. What's your new album? Well, my new album family of ten won't often. The elevator. What? Later. Oh, my new album is coming out. I would release the name of it. But I don't wanna do it right now. But my new single is called that girl. I'm signed to a record label. Call the American commission. Excellence is the is the executive producer this news. Yeah. Just as a sweet, I just did this, so whatever, and we have been recording recording. I've taken a lot of my catchphrases and made them into song and these are high energy songs, and they're going to be workout free to work out to it's going to cater to everyone. That listens to if you get when you get the album, you're gonna just sit there, and you listen to a lot of stuff that I'm saying a lot of my catch. I'm I'm gonna you guys here. Just a rough step your pussy up except he put up is one of the tracks on the first single off of that. Is that girl you listen to step you pussy up when you go to over GYN? It was real Jope. Was it? You know, the album is the Adam is going to be great. It's it's it's gone up for everyone. It's made for everybody. But it's I'm really channeling my roots my game. And I'm very very proud of the album because the album is is just it's me. It's me you'll be able to meet Madison right there. No. She's to your soul on it. So this music available on may twentieth. Oh, so it's not even out yet. No, I've just gave some team. All right. We got big campaign. I just did. I did a lyric video for the first which we're going to be dropping a Memorial Day. But the first single will be out on may twentieth on I tunes, it's called that girl. And it's produced by the American commission, you can put tears Madison there you'll be able to call you on Twitter to find Twitter is at Madison teal and the number one. Stands for. Oh my God. What did I? Fernan lewis. I want to say what Stanford right now. Atlanta. There's a fake study around. Everybody's passing the truth that a survey was conducted asking American parents, what they would do they found out that their son or daughter was a homo sapiens. Seventy percent said they would kick them out of that house. That was busy questions. They ask Jimmy Kimmel when they do like the man on the street. Leads me back to stating that. People see black and white and their dumb home. Sapien human being. That's like when you're in grade school and people epidermis this showing, and then they don't know fame. Fame is just to educate like, ma'am, it didn't say homosexuals at home. And that's part of the thing why that's being spread so much because LGBT folks are human beings. We're all homo, homo, sapiens. God, but it's just people this dumb. They don't take the time to look at anything. They only see it right there. Front of him. Oh, homo sapiens. Oh, get out. There's a real study going around. But it's pointing out the obvious that one of the biggest challenges facing medical research on diseases that affect African American men is that our government is putting so many of them in prison that it makes it impossible to study. So a lot of medical firms and research that's being done on black men's health has to be terminated. Because the subjects of the study get put in prison. So let me in jail pretty much whether saying for the studies that's the one to sign up for the study. So they're trying to pass legislation to allow if somebody is put in prison your friends. Your friends? Let me just finish that saying this. So they're now trying to pass legislation to allow prisoners who have been already in the past part of studies to continue those studies because in the past in the nineteen seventies. And sixties they were doing medical research on prisoners against their consent, though, they were like, here's your food, and there's a pill inside there. I don't know what it is. It might be some radiation. Krizner's, of course cheese. Okay. Before we move onto the next sovereign Lord. I just want to send a special Pri up to heaven, Lord when I tell you. We just sit here, and listen and learn that America, the United States house some of the most stupidest people in the world, Lord, please in that same tree down that you did Honey the tree of knowledge and give us all that fruit. A man can I get an? Honey, that was crazy. So all black meaner G and they don't want homeless. That makes it much impossible to actually do study because you need a number of people. And so if you're sunning sickle cell anemia, for example, and seventy five percent of the people in your study get sent to prison and the study, then they can't continue. They don't know what how to treat people. They do put shit out an atmosphere like that therefore type of shit out of people can't believe that Bush. People. We're actually recording this time l- Tena Asli on video you can see Madison's friend background. Your head is there Dr roller partition, please sweet California just passed a Bill in the assembly. It's called the California's respect after death act in the Bill will help ensure transgender people have their authentic gender identity reflected on their death certificates because so many times the families get involved or the people they don't know who they are and this market, male or female, and now sometimes you really have to fight for people to have that. And so now there's going to be law. That's great. That's great. Because it's in my will this is this is what's important to make a will. This is important about stepping your pussy up in my wheel, it states that my because my mom is is based she's a Baptist southern Baptist. She was gonna put me in a suit. I put it in my wheel. Honey, she cannot bury me because I didn't live in a suit that's in my wheel. And then everything else like my all the stuff that I own. In my house, and you know, my money and stuff like that. You know, it's to be broken up in whatever like my brothers who ever if I pass away before my mom, then that's what it stated for her to not be in a suit and just make sure there's twenty two inches on that win. He wanted to then I'm going to be buried hunting in a ball gown wonder woman. No, no, ballgown what part of it is it like you're already dead. Just throw my body off a funny show. Respect me while I'm alive. Fuck it. Forget about it when I'm steel. I know that know like I'm gonna get the last word, Don. No, I wrote that way I've written sunny in my wheel. So my mom, and she and I had a very strong position about, mommy. I'm not allowed to do that. Because even though I'm dead. There are people going to be standing over me. You're gonna have to hear this stuff. If if I pass away before you, and I had the same conversation. We were sitting around the lawyer because I have stuff so I have to make sure that you know. I'm proud that. I have I don't care. What anybody says about me? I'm proud that. I've I've taken limits. Eliminate and I have a successful business for myself and owned things, and I have a little monies and on the stab broad, and and I have things that when I leave die. I can leave a legacy behind or leaf things we have from my brothers and their children, and I wanna make sure that if I pass away that they know that that there was that girl. Do you see yourself in the future having children adopting? Maybe. Yeah. Doubting. Children. Could just adopt me if much easier. Much too. Big for what I'd like to you. Darrow Hughes on Facebook is asking are you are you happy? Well, I'm becoming happy. Now. Like more I'm becoming more happy because I'm actually. At one point in my life. I didn't I regretted doing porn at one point just for a split second. I regretted it because I was like damn, you know, once you get involved with something that you stuck in shit or whatever. But but through social media and other channels that allow people to to see I'm a more than just. I'm more than just that gummy bears. I'm more than that. And it just made me feel like, you know, just I regretted it at first. But now that I see that people love me people wanna be around me want to be in prison. People don't even think twice about it. Oh, you do porn. Okay. Char whatever. Let's talk about the news talk about sports talk about what's going on in the world. They wanna know what I have to say. And I and my words and my life are affecting other people's lives. So that makes me feel more and more important. I'm happy that I feel now that I'm a gift to the world. Now, I feel that I'm becoming a precious commodity to the world reputable before you leave. Thank you. Hinton? Thank you for taking us to church. We did go. We did. We did. On a community. The one.

The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap

Howard Bryant, ESPN The Magazine

"This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy shop. Welcome to the show. One of our old friends, the 'Skin senior writer columnist are tennis maven Howard Bryant Howard. Welcome to shop. Thanks for having me, my favorite time of year. This is right in your tennis, wheelhouse, of course this time of year. And at the French Open, we had both the expected Rafael Nadal, winning his twelve title, just in Paris, which is obviously insane. Unfathomable. And Ashley Barty as party, the Australian who took off two years from tennis to become, I guess, a professional cricketer, although she had no experience in that sport has returned obviously to the tennis fold has been rising steadily through the ranks last couple years. She wins on the women's side. What did you make Bharti's victory? Why loved it actually? Because I think that this is one of the interesting things when it's almost sometimes you look at these conversations, and I try really hard not to fall into narrative. Just watch the matches and see what's happening. There's nothing better than tennis in that regard as well, because the because the renting's are so dynamic. And so you had all this period where it was like, oh, well, you know, Serena's winning all the time, there's nothing that no competition. But if you watch the women's game there are plenty of different players out there. And I think it's really great to when you come up to you come off the hard court surface at after the AUSSIE open. And after. The two American masters one thousand then you get to clay and all of a sudden McClay on McClay court. She start seeing different players emerge Ashbury has been rising for a while now. And you're wondering when she was going to sort a cry crossover because she's playing so well, and that title is there for the taking and she got ended down on the mid site, as we said, you know, when I was growing up when you were growing up, there was Roy Emerson, who had twelve total grand slam singles titles. That was the most for the men. It seemed unapproachable for longtime six of his titles coming Australian that seem ridiculous. And now we've gotten a Dow who's up to what is it sixteen total eighteen eighteen total? I'm sorry, Roger's got twenty right. And Djokovic got what fifteen. Has has Raphael del ruined, the French Open, or, or is he gives us more reason to appreciate it? Oh, he makes it better. You think? So more reason to appreciate him in makes it better. And here's the reason why I mean because once again, we talk about these things in narrative, and it does feel inevitable. It certainly by the time Rafa got done with Dominic team you were you were thinking, oh my goodness. He just runs through. But he really didn't he he, he was destroyed in the Australian Open by Novak Djokovic. And I don't mean that to be hyperbolic, he got beaten straight-sets, and it was his worst loss at a major major final ever. And you're looking at this until you've got Djokovic has an opportunity to hold all four majors again for the second time in his career. He's already proven that he could crush, though, which he did. He goes into the quake court season. It does not playing particularly well because he had to withdraw at Indian Wells against against Roger so he's his health isn't great. His greatest rival joke had taken care of them. Then he goes to the surfaces where he dominates. And Fabio Fanini takes him out at money Carlo, and he loses to team and loses sits pass and in Madrid and Barcelona. So he's going into he's going into Rome, without a title than twenty eight for twenty nineteen. So it's not like this was this was giving. He finally starts to find himself a little bit. He goes out he beats joke bitch in the final in Rome. So now you're starting to think, okay. Maybe RAF is there. And then he turns it on, and that it wasn't a given that he was gonna come into the clay court season come into rolling girls and gives dominate everybody. You have made an argument that, that both joke of his end team. We're playing. Better than Rafa in that tournament. But once that tournament starts, all of a sudden, he turns that light switch on. We're speaking with Howard, Bryant columnist and senior writer for yes, PIN the magazine who's been covering tennis for so long and so well. And I see what you're saying about new Dell but, you know, the fact is, he's won twelve of these things, which is ridiculous. Exactly. Ed Ed, it's a little bit to me like the way that, you know, Bob Beamon kinda ruined the long jump for a long time with when he broke the record by twenty two inches in nineteen sixty eight it's, it's, it's a little bit like Sergei Buca, the poll fault. It's just like when somebody pulls away so far ahead of the rest of the crowd, the peleton, however, you wanna put it. It does it somehow diminish the event or is that silly wave? Look, again it why don't think it chilly. But I, I don't wanna use words like lazy, and I don't wanna I don't wanna talk like that to me. But what it does sound to me is that we, we've become a bit jaded. I think we still do we still enjoy the journey of the games. I mean, for example, this is the exact same arguments, which in gears for a second. This is the exact same argument. We were hearing with the warriors. Oh the ruin the game three into and finals. Yeah. And I'm not saying that they got the straight up because obviously they had in your east. But this is the reason why you watch the game. This is the reason why you play the game. You know, the ROY the warriors one championships when their opponents were injured. They went in twenty fifteen when tire you're having an Kevin love were both hurt. They win six games. Then, of course, you've got the twenty sixteen final which was amazing because dream on get suspended and you had to go through all of those things. And so. To me. I still watch the game. I still find a lot of joy. And in that journey, and how the championships are one and how they're lost. And if you're only focus on the end result, sure it looks boring because the end result can be predictable. However, I remember time and you remember this is well, when people were talking about I the patriots headed dynasty, and then they didn't win for a few years, only because they didn't win the championship. Imitates was supposedly did years, ten years, exactly ten years. But in those ten years, they went to what six AFC title games, and they went to one Super Bowl and Kyushu roles in lost them. Both they left to the giant, so it's not it's not like they weren't a great team. We fall into this idea that if the end result is what we expected. Or if the end result doesn't produce then we can create the labeling them, so saying I like watching the game and seeing what's see what happens. And if you watch that NBA final. Was nothing boring about it. I wanted to see could the Toronto Raptors actually close. And they did. And believe me when you saw that game six after blowing game five at home and limitation game. It wasn't a guarantee that they were gonna I don't know what happens if that thing, though, seven I found it. I still find it to be a really compelling, journey your true fan, you're better. You're better man than I am. I'm not Bob Ryan, not Brian. But I'm but I still love watching the game. Among us is now a he, he goes everyday for those of who are listening, don't know Howard knows this. I know this, but, but Bob Ryan will drive six hours round trip to go to a high school basketball game interest. He, he will not. He'll see hill, watch basketball till the cows come home. But, you know, for me with, with men's tennis now it's part of, it's kind of a microcosm of the larger issue and I was fascinated. You probably were aware of this, but Chris Clarry from the New York Times. Great tennis writer. There tweeted before the French Open that there is only one man in the world, I believe it is under the age of twenty eight who is so much appeared in a grand slam. Singles final, and it was dominant team. And they're still only one man who's under. Maybe it's insane. How the old guys have been dominating? When he pointed at the same time, I believe, for with his eleven and McEnroe right with his eight head one all of their grandson, singles titles, by the age of twenty five both of them, and they were both retired by twenty six. Also, not forget that we're talking about three arguably the three greatest players ever, you can certainly make a case for that. But it's just been going on for so long when you see I mean when when is this going to end when somebody? Big enough and bad enough to beat him. And I don't begrudge those players at all. I mean you, you know, you gotta if you wanna be the best you gotta beat the best, right? And this I don't understand this whole notion that they somehow the sports are being. We watch the game Jeremy dominance. I wanna see the do you wanna see two teams eight and play for championship? Mercy to video Cortines knock the ball around. I don't wanna see that now. I love the grape. I've said I feel like a little turnover is good. You know, little fresh blood is good being. That's what I, I wish there was. I there isn't one. Exactly. Hey, remember, two thousand nine one Martine photo shows up at the US open, crushes Madonna in the semi final, and peace fetter. They're gonna championship. That's how you do it. Looking Novak that Djokovic Novak Djokovic, twenty eleven comes in these Fedor NBC bell windy championship. This is what you're supposed to do. And I think that again, I really don't wanna sort of the labor this, but I do wonder do we watch. Why are we watching these things if we don't want to see the best of the best of the best? I know that for me when this is over, I'm gonna be real sad about it. Because these are the best tennis players, I've ever seen if you like the sport. And if you love how the game is played in respect the excellence. How can you not wanna watch Serena? And how can you not wanna watch joke, a vision federa, and Madonna, and to see them all at the same time this reminds me of what the old time if you say when I was a kid. Oh, well you should've seen as mantle and the do you know you should've seen those teams play together you should've seen will and and Russell. I'm here for dynasties. I'm not here for sort of. I don't I don't wanna see some eighteen plays six seat in the Stanley Cup like the devils and the kings one year. I wanna see the best of the best place Howard before we let you go, who's gonna win Wimbledon. You're gonna tell me right? You're gonna tell me it's could be Serena and Roger. I you know, we used to we used to say when we were on the old sports reporters. Don't ask me those questions. But obviously, you've got Rodgers got eight of them. Joke vicious defending champion. You know, it's a, you know, when you get to grass the big server show up, so you had rounded me, Richard final. You've had truly three two final. You had Kevin Anderson reach a final last year. So you'd know that you're going to some six foot eight guy out there is going to be blasted aces on the on the grass so met her underestimate that I, I have no feel for this. So I'm gonna go with the defending champion. I'm just gonna say after joking vich left the dominant team. I'm gonna say Novak is favorite. And here we go again at the big three controlling everything Howard Bryant. It's always a pleasure, sir. It's been too long. Thank you for coming back on the sporting life, call, again, anytime, I'm Jeremy shop, and you can listen to new editions of the sporting life, every Saturday and Sunday morning on ESPN radio and ESPN app, beginning at six AM eastern time.

Then do real hopefully listen to episodes one and two at this point and I got a message from my friend Sabrina couch. She was the victim's advocate on this case and spent a lot of time with Stacy's family in the aftermath and she sat with them in the courtroom for the trial. I ask Sabrina. If she thought that Stacy's mother would be willing to speak with me and offer some more candid details about stacy and her life. Well she was and I had the privilege of speaking with her and this is our interview. I'm Addison and I'm stacey reputable neither. Well it's been over fifteen years. It's really good to talk to you. What can you tell us about stacy? Xinhua person she wasn't incredible child an incredible baby. She did everything early very loving very very free child. The dream trial the one. You have no problem. It wasn't until her father. Turn your back on her. Why was pregnant that she started having problems and that was about nine years old from there it just kind of borrowed I remarried. I had I had another child. She's very doting on her brother. Had A lot of demons never felt she was good enough to be loved and she acted out quite a bit. She had a very rough teenagers and young adulthood with alcohol and drugs but she was trying to turn herself around she. She dropped out of high school following year or two years later. She went back and got her. Ged and she made. It made a ninety eight percent on her pets mean. She's very smart but he also was very nine in the respect that there was no such thing as a stranger believed what she wanted to believe. She figured she could handle anything. Get out anything deal with anything. She was very strong willed. They're stop well very passionate about animals and things that she loved in my household there is there. I I have a lot of my kids have whatever they wanted. Pretty much though. I've dealt with bearded Dragon Tarantula. Snakes Oh my fellow constrictor hamster my bird Barrett that dog you name it. I've had every kind of credit you can imagine and those were some of those were hers. Oh yeah wow so she. She really did have an affinity for for animals. Which is now that speaks a lot to her heart. I guess where I don't know the word with a fantasy but her again animals return the turtle. Well if you think about it the turtle it has a very soft inside and a very hard outer shell and it has those thoughts. Joey eyes and a smile and they're very gentle creature. That's what she identified with and that's kind of what she was like. I mean he had a tough near you but inside. She was very sensitive and very saw her. Yes appointment inner father per lack of self esteem and some things that she experienced tormented her horribly. And your she just buried them and alcohol you know. There's all kinds of people that drink to excess. And she didn't and she went straight into it. When stacy was you know hanging out with the NATO. Do you have any background on how they met or anything like that? Yeah a little bit. Because she had started using drugs the end she was working with me temporarily and I made early I was not gonNa be Cardi and yet that and she moved in with a guy she met Benito lived in the next building over and they were like quad and he lives in the next unit over day. Suck up a friendship. He would give her a ride. They go to the Flea Market. She talked about different things. Not WanNa her. More notable experiences go play. Pool DRINK BEERS IN. Pick up the TAB by or something and I called her and I told her you're setting yourself up now. No no no no. He's just a friend then are now no. He's not no no no no as she didn't. WanNa believe some people who have intelligence or they're smart but they don't have that other smart you know what I mean. I guess it's just reading other people. Maybe yeah she trusted everybody now. Nothing's going to happen and you didn't believe I mean it if she had her mindset something one way if she thought the sky was blue and it was ray. There was no convincing her. You know you couldn't tell her that. This person has an ulterior motive. This person is not a good now. I'm telling you this person that's not a good person. I've got a candle now. You don't the she really was looking for affection. I guess in just the wrong places right. After Christmas. In December of four I was at a birthday party for a friend of Mine and mine. Were celebrating a birthday. That was the weekend of January third and she calls me and she said I'm done. I'm going to quit. I'm going to get my job back at the restaurant. I'm going to go back to. What did she want to study? What was her interest? She had about animals. She had talked about veterenarian global she had an interest in criminology. I think she was just trying to figure it out deep down past all of that superficial stuff and things that were out of control. It sounds like she was really really trying hard to turn it around and she wanted to make a new start she worked in. She was really trying and camp You had a big heart. She was back child. That broke all the rules when she was an infant came home from the hospital weighing nine pound four ounces twenty two inches long feeding every four hours not every two into within two months. It was every six hours the best personality she walked around each year. It didn't take her long together to very smart very very smart. You probably got the trust thing for me. Because I'm too trusting. Her Dad will get her every couple of weeks every every month until he was married and she was expecting a child and basically essentially couldn't come back visit. He was a very. I'm kind person. Basically you're on your own ghetto so it wasn't so much tough love as just see later bidding care attitude with her she well she can go be beyond revenue word. He actually said that that she just go be a hippie. I live in the woods now when I got additional child support. He wrote a letter to her telling her he no longer singer Christmas and birthday present. Because I was getting tremendous amount of child support and I pay for for them. Now that's heartbreaking for you for her for your whole family. Yeah I was. It was tough I just I can't fathom out. He could sit there and say that she did it. Yeah what went through your mind when he testified at trial. Can you talk about? That was a joke he he. He's working well enough to communicate with her she. She knew absolutely know Spanish so for him to have to happen interpreter. That was all a sham opinion. He knew he'd been in this country. Long Union I don't buy that. He couldn't understand and you say that she carried an eye and she cut him is ludicrous. Because that's not who she that kind of person she was she. She would've fought with him if he was attacking her or she would have been trying to get away. I know that and I know that she was attempting to all nine one one. He killed because of that. He didn't want it costs and she were hurt from hitting the windshield. I don't believe she got out of the car willing. I believe he grabbed he he. He pulled her out. I have relived her experience a thousand times and I believe that after the car accidents truck accidents. He got out and bear in that. Not The intersection but off to the side. He got her off to the side and she tried call. They were arguing and she tried to call nine one one whether or not you know. They started arguing or fussing or fighting. Or what but I know. She started running and she could run well real well because of her leg from having had a car accident. I didn't know have a little issue that actually switches a lot of my not just my reconstruction of the case but my my thoughts about it that she could not run where very well of her hip had been fractured. I didn't know that yeah. Her Pelvis was fractured in three places and her leg was broken in a spiral from the ankle to the knee. She never really regret regained her strength really well in that leg even though she bartended and waitress and it it was still kinda run. Funny Yeah I'm sure it was quite painful not not balanced going back and thinking about it and reliving it. She ran therefore that Hutler on her back. And she have fallen. I mean ran into that bomb and fell down and he chased her down there. Because it's the footed the berm at the tree that poor she died. I went there. You went to the scene that weekend. Yes the Sullen for. Actually medicine planted plants. There had a memorial. There put a Christmas tree there that year. I had a stone turtle and a stone cross there and somebody stole a car and a few years later that land up sold in that area got bulldozed before I knew it of cross up. I've close to where I could remember at the sidewalk. Where that was. I think I ended up being a little bit further down. It was hard to remember exactly where it were. Somebody don't know who or how many people but in the beginning there were rosaries hung on that cross and there must be fifteen twenty rosary hanging on that cross. You have no idea who put them there. Now there's an Eugene new construction building there. There's an apartment complex and when they were working on the area. I went down and I asked him call them about the Cross and I ask myself that. Y'All are going to get rid of it. Let me know because the construction site put the bent around the cross instead of removing it when they put up the landscape sensing that whole area landscaped so there are plants around it. They left my car. I went not long ago and got her name on on the car and cleaned up around the area and I go. You know from time to time and put flower Not having a grave by we. I didn't bury her. She was cremated and on her birthday that following that year. We all my family went to Cumberland Highland and had a picnic and we spread her ashes in the ocean. He took a very over to Cumberland Island. And we all went to the The we had our picnic and spread her ashes or that a prayer together and my brother had an his wife had brought a box of rose petals and so we spread the Rose pedals along with the action. She looks over walkies over actually her her daughter and my son Chris. I know she watches over them. I know she watches over everyone. I just wish I could see her. Doctor There's one thought that you could leave everyone about stacy what would it be shed so much potential? She didn't have the chance but then on the other hand I think God saw her efforts hurting soul that he took her home. And that's how I have. Does that help you cope with it? Oh definitely definitely I know. She's not hurting anymore. She's not in pain and her fola is if he'll Susan. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me. Do you have any parting thoughts for everyone Hud Hellum? You love them in our now. It's been fifteen and a half years since Stacey left this earth and this was the first time I got to speak with Susan. I didn't get to speak with her at trial or in the intervening years. And I regret that if Susan strength is any indication of Stacy's inner strength. I can just imagine what she could have become. So here's my request to you when you see a sea turtle anywhere photographs in the ocean video. Think of Stacy. Thanks for listening

Watch version of our TV towers. Usa IPHONE APP users of the iphone APP will get limited version installed on their compatible watch. It's the ninety nine cent APP in the APP. Purchase to unlock the full. Watch APP like Manna. Say APP a few more times story. Glenn turned out Nice. And it's one of the first uses I've seen of the compass in the series five apple. Watch and he sent us a link to a youtube video to check it out. So we'll put that up at the website. Thank you Glenn and Ronald for the TV towers. Usa APP and for Your Pal. So I watch videos actually pretty cool Imagine on your watch and you're trying to aim your antenna. You WanNa know where the tower is A. There's literally compass on the watching. You just Kinda turned. And then it tells you when you're lined up with the with the tower and it's very easy to point your antenna so. I think it's a really cool APP Go check it out. He's been working on this for a few years and he supported us and his shoutouts always been about bringing attention to that APP. So would that. Let's move over to. We've got a couple of emails to talk about the first one is from Tim and he says it's time for a new receiver. Replacing my Deaden S. Nine Twenty. W would something newer generally speaking. How USEFUL OR IMPORTANT? Are the pre outs on a receiver. I'm looking at a on Kyo. T X ours e seven forty versus the Dennen six hundred age versus the Amaha are x eighty and So it's not a hundred percent necessary if you're going to do Most you're GONNA WANNA make sure that your has enough amplifiers a lot of the lower end. Receivers don't have all the amplifiers needed for at most. Although they can decode at most so you would need an external amplifier. In those cases they do provide PRIETA. N-. There's no other way to do it. But if you're in general if you're buying a receiver with the pre outs the only time you'd probably need that is if one day decided. I'm going to get a different better amplifier. That's better than what's in my receiver. So let's say I spent six hundred dollars. Seven hundred dollars on a mid range amplifier and there is a really good amplifier that. I want so you can still do decoding and everything else. You like in your amplifier. Hdmi switching. But you can increase the fidelity of what's being output by running through separate amp. That's really the main reason why you would care about on on a Apr. Yeah I mean it's the like you said to add those extra if you're ample only does seven channels but you want to get nine or eleven or if you want to treat your your receiver as just a processor right and use it And you can upgrade your receiver more rapidly in you invest in really really high quality amps. Then you get the pre outs and by really good amps. That you're gonNA keep for a long time. But all the sorry all those units that he described the Dannon and the have pretty good amplifiers in those cases. It's not I don't think it's that important in your trying to get to that next level of audio sound right or you've got speakers that are just really inefficient but sound great for whatever reason you want to make sure you put a better amp on them. Whatever some people are particular about those kinds of things and our next email is from Ron. He says I have a question for you. And I haven't been able to Google a satisfactory answer. Hope YOU DON'T MIND. I did all of my direct TV services at and T. now and satellite and signed up for Youtube TV bought a few roku players and can't figure out the best setup. I have older. Tv's ten eighty seven twenty. But everything I'm reading tells me to hook up the player through the HDMI on the TV. Wouldn't I WANNA go through the APR instead or maybe I just buy a TV with roku built in for the office and Bedroom? I have an ancient thirty seven inch. Levy. Ah that works just fine but definitely an artifact at seven twenty p an artifact in that brand love your brandon thing. It's been around for a while. He says any appreciate any advice. Hope you're well. Podcast still sounds great. Thanks Ron for the email and if you have older. Tv's they probably don't support audio return channel on the HD if they do then you can use audio return channel to go to get the surround sound to your receiver if they don't and you want surround sound for the rooms that you're running those Roku in then yeah definitely plug them into the receiver and run the receiver. Hdmi up to your TV just for video and use the receiver for audio You probably not finding that on Google because Roku is going to give you the simplest and easiest way to install things which would be just running straight to your TV and in most cases where people don't have a receiver they're just using TV for sound you know that's the easiest way obviously the most direct way to do it So the two ways to get around sound would be used audio return channel on your Hdmi or like you said Ron run it through the receiver and then run the video from the receiver up to the TV. Yeah that's exactly what I told him. Brayden and we didn't talk about this before some very happy were on the same page A side note. I bought my mother and father in law an Olivia. Tv back of maybe ten fifteen years ago ten years ago a longtime ago at a black Friday the one and only time I got up in two in the morning to to go out black Friday shopping and it is still working You know you hear about a lot of TV's that just didn't stand. The test of time is also seven twenty p but for what my mother in law watches. It works just great and the company's gone but their. Tv's are still around. That's the amazing thing to me. Remember we have a podcast history with that company they were? I called Syntax Brilliant or Syntax and they merged Burlington or something like that and they've made elk. Tv's way way back in the day And I think we interviewed a couple of people from their company and then they rebranded as a levy when they went to flat panel and then unfortunately in make it. Yeah it was so we had it was at the HDTV conference where we sat down and interviewed the The CEO the company was really cool. 'cause Brayden made me feel legit. I think we'd only been pot gassing for about eight or nine months at the time in here we had a CEO of this company. That was talking at the. Hdtv conference to us that we felt great so it was really cool and then their marketing person Kept in touch with us and she moved on to some other company so it was. It was fun. I have very fond memories of that company all their. Tv's back in the day. Were really good. Tv's it's just a shame that L. C. O. S. DIDN'T Find a way to To work in flat panels know all right moving on a news. A Google appears to be rolling out Dobie Vision. Hd support on Google play movies spotted by flat panels hd play movies has now started showing up with Dolby vision support on limited collection of movies specifically to films right. Now joker a simple favor and they've both been lifted with dolby vision. Hd Our support. It's unclear if support is available more widely but Searching for Dolby in the play store brings up those two titles. They appear to be compatible Android ON THEY APPEAR ON COMPATIBLE ANDROID. Tv devices with Dolby Vision logo appearing in the movies listing technically this HDR standards should be supported on other platforms such as Roku. But it's hard to verify that Because the APP dozen list which standards or resolutions a film supports. So they're starting to work over. Do you think Brandon Dolby. Vision is going to become the defacto. Hdr STANDARD. I don't know man I think he's just going to be one of the multiple You'RE GONNA end up where you have like. Dobie and D. T. S. audio standards you'll have Dobie and hd are ten and ten plus or whatever I don't know that one's going to sort of BLU ray. The HD HD DVD. Out of it Do you think we're GONNA end up with one. Well you know I said that in I forgot about the whole Adobe digital and D. T. S. And for the most part yes is on every single thing that you watch as well but everyone thinks dolby digital And there's a lot of S. DIEHARDS. Who doubts the only way they WANNA listen to it but when they went to true hd DDS had their version of that to. It was almost imperceptible. The difference so became Pointless to argue. I know some people are going to argue with that statement but when it sounds almost identical to what the sound mixer did what else can you do to it and so I now There is some difference in how they do it but the one thing Dobie does they provide a lot of support to the studio so that you master you movies in Dolby vision and I don't know if that support helping driving it but There's a lot of support for that and my projector dozen support. Dolby be vision. So I'm hoping someday there's a firmware upgrade that allows that to happen. Dt has just Kinda pile on their. They have their object oriented or three D audio format and was called D. X. or something but we always talk about atmos- whenever we talk about the additional channels and the high channels we'd mentioned as atmos- so for some reason dolby even the DDS has like competing offerings saying dolby digital and Dobie atmos- have sort of become the defacto standard And that's kind where that's kind of where I was leaning when I asked you that. Question because Yes Diaz. Is there a big company? But dolby is the standard. Yeah all right in Samsung Scott a new TV for you dubbed The Terrace. The culet television starts at a hefty. Thirty five hundred bucks for the fifty five inch size and that's because it's an outdoor. Tv The prices go up obviously from that thirty five hundred bucks. Roughly four times the price of an equivalent indoor Samsung TV ten times as much as bud- budget models cost. But for the outlay you'll get something designed from the ground up to survive outdoors. They've got a fifty five inch for thirty five hundred bucks a sixty five inch for five grand and seventy five inch for sixty five hundred dollars but it is water in dust resistant rated to Ip fifty five enough to withstand contact with harmful dust and low pressure water projected from a nozzle for reference to apple iphone eleven pro Max and the Samsung Galaxy s twenty ultra are both rated higher to Ip Sixty eight but to be fair at TV mounted on a Patio. Probably doesn't need as much protection as your phone does hopefully your. Tv WON'T DROP INTO THE POOL SAMSUNG. Also tout's the TV's high brightness two thousand knits and reflective screen technology and adaptive brightness those features are typical for a high LCD TV. But even more welcome of course outdoors where the image has to compete with the sun. The matching sound bar is a twelve hundred dollar unit the H. W. L. S. T. Seventy t also. I P fifty five rated with sound tailored for outdoors by the company's Audio Lab in California connects to the TV via Wi fi and Bluetooth also accepts aleady voice commands like Samsung Standard sound bars but does not include a sub. Woofer a special terrace. Tv mounting kit is included with the bar and is shipping now. So interesting that it's ten times the cost of a budget model so you could go through ten budget models in the time that you would need to have this thing in service in order for it to make sense I guess. Waste wise or ECO friendly wise. That's not the right way to go. It'd probably be better off by the Samsung but budget wise. I don't know. Can you think you'd go through ten budget? Tv's in the time it would take to You know what the what the ten the I if that spread out over ten years. You're getting better. Tv's each and every time I to you. So I was doing the math in my head too as you're reading it but there was one thing that caught my eye. It's the two thousand knits. So if you're just GONNA put it right in the brightness a completely unprotected this is the way to go For whatever reason if that's what your backyard is but let's say you've got a gazebo. Some sort of Pergola. Something that's going to give you a little bit of shade and you can build some sort of enclosure around it. Then I'm thinking go for the the ten time Savings because I don't think it's I think it will last more than a year if you have any kind of protective covering over in other words just to keep the water away from it and maybe what you could do is make those completely enclosed when you're not watching it like have some sort of pulled down a door or something and then it could rain all at once outside and you're good and then when you're going to go outside in the backyard than you The you know the other thing is a lot of places. can't really even use them outdoors say in the winter or something so you just bring it in and put it in your basement and then when the weather gets good you pull it back out so again. I think if it's out in direct sunlight you're gonNA want this one but otherwise I I would go the ten times cheaper. Yeah you're right if you have like a winter period where you're not hanging out outside for extended amount of time pulling it down and bring it in in the garage or whatever and then take it back out when the weather gets better is like a twice a year occurrence. It's not not that big a deal but if you have like if you live in the snow and you've got a Jacuzzi out in the back and you sit there when it's cold out in the winter. Maybe you would want a more weatherproof. Tv's you could watch while you're sitting in the hot tub and funny I have a huge concrete Like bar a barbecue bar and the other day we were having some company over and I brought out. I built a Little Portable Stereo with Bluetooth at brought that out. Just put that on top of the bar and connected to my phone and listen to music but if I had a fifty five inch. Tv. They're not that heavy and let's say there was a fight or some kind of sporting event. I could easily have brought that out. Put It on the on. The bar plugged it in and be done with it because you can use a set top box because I have good wifi out there and I'd be able to watch anything I want out there and then when it was all done I could. I could put it away so Again I don't know for me. I think if I were to buy a fifty five inch actually for word. That was my backyard. I could probably go with a forty inch and by for like two hundred Bucks Buy. I think I think so. My answer is no answers. No all right last story. Sr email for a news for the day is qube viewers can now stream content from their iphones devices. Such as televisions with Apple's airplay. The company is also working on adding chrome support to its platform next month and that would have been something I thought they would want. From the beginning I understand. Qube is meant for the phone but sometimes you might WanNa watch it on a bigger platform and I I don't know how difficult would be to add but anyway at least is coming. Do I phones and airplay in crump cast soon right on and digital movie. Ticketing Platform Atom surveyed fifteen hundred movie goers about their moviegoing intentions in the midst of theaters temporary closures due to the Covid nineteen pandemic and the responses. I think some of them surprised me a little bit to be honest with you but the first question that they asked was win. Will you be returning to theatres once? There's a movie in theaters that you WANNA see. How quickly will you return to the theaters when they reopen and the highest number of responses was within one month thirty four percent twenty five percent said immediately twenty one percent said wait for a vaccine eighteen said two or more months and only one percent said never? I'm never ever going back to the theater. You know I think if they keep the movies somewhat day and date on the streaming platforms. I fall into the one percent. I'm probably never going back But if they go back to the old model of putting them in the theaters I I don't know maybe i. I don't think I'd wait for a vaccine but I'll probably wait a couple of months for them to figure out what the new system is okay. So you're talking only because you want to figure out you're waiting for the kinks to be worked out of how to go to a movie Post this okay. Not because of any fear or anything no I just. It seems like it's going to be a mess for a while. They try to figure out. What seats are you allowed to sit in? How do you stand in line what you know? I just I wouldn't deal with that. It'd be more hassle than it's worth to go to movie in the theater but once they get that figured out and it seems like it makes sense and there's a really good movie out that I can't watch at home I'll probably go back are. Yeah well I never stopped going because of this simply because I wasn't going already so for me it would have been a because I already wasn't going but The I immediately if I was probably what I would have done at this point in time. I I want to get out and do things and that would have been a nice diversion and then So the next question asked was in order to feel confident in going back to movie theater. What is the single most important condition that must be met and forty? Two percent of the people said spaced seating within the auditorium. I saw that and I was thinking. Okay how are they going to do this? You're on a date. Are you going to have a space between you and your date or you go with your wife and kids? You're all coming out of the same family. The how. How do they manage that? You know what I'm saying so I. I don't even know how they would do this. And let's just blanket say every other seat is Every other row in every other seat you just can't sit in and that's just the way it is. You WanNa go to a movie you and your loved ones are not going to be sitting right next to each other or all tickets to be presold and you buy in a group you can sit together but then they cannot sell you know a and how are they going or whatever so I get. How are they going to monitor that a lot of times? They have these great concepts. But it's like how do you do it? So let's say they had every other seat Saying you can only sit every other seat lights go down. I'm not my girlfriend. Just slide over you know. And then it may be an usher comes in and separate to. I don't know but that just seems a little flashlight comes by the only thing I think it is. They physically removed the seat in that. That would guarantee it so i. I'm curious about that. The to your point wait till they get the kinks worked out all right so then. The next thing was heightened cedar cleaning procedures and to me. That's a big deal. I would love that and the thing is. Why didn't we have that before? But just you know. That's just my own opinion near the masks required for staffing guests. I hate wearing my mask. It is hard to breathe and I do it one required but is a second amount of a place that says you don't need a mask it's off because even when I'm woodworking I wear because I WANNA keep the dust out of my nose but is because I wear glasses. It's hard to breathe without fogging up glasses so I have to get those things dialed in and then the question is are you wearing it right it. Just the masks. Her are difficult to deal with in. I think it would be very hard to watch a movie wearing a mask with especially with snacks right. You WANNA eat popcorn. Drink your coat whatever. You can't have a mask on good point you know. It's social. Is the movie theaters. All their money on concessions. So that's sort of like kills the whole the whole profit for the mask but staff is easy. You can force your staff to wear masks. But it'd be tough to get the the guests to wear masks but this is what they're saying. The single most isn't to them and that's only fourteen percent so not many people. Are that concerned about it. And then social distancing in the lobby ten percent again not very many people concerned about that an temperature checks at six percent so the movie theaters do you think they have a tougher Go about it than say other types of businesses. Because let's say you're going to concert. I would imagine a concert. Has the same thing because it gets. You know it's dark and people are are on top of each other. I don't know how you're going to do this with any of these kinds of things. It's almost like wait until Viruses completely gone. If that's even possible right so wait until they have a vaccine or herd immunity or whatever but yeah live sporting events and when think about you know at halftime or seventh inning stretch? And everybody's going out to buy a hotdog or by NACHOS. How do you do social distancing? The lines are already ridiculously long. How do you make it so people can actually fit and get in line and get their food and then some of this is you know how Howard Theater is gonna be able to stay in business and be profitable if you can't sell as many seats per theater per showing a movie because you have to have space seating so people can't sit right next to each other? Maybe you can only sell in a two thirds or half of the seats. That you could sell before heightened theater cleaning procedures means. You're paying people more to work more more staff on on hand. You got. Buy more masks social distancing in the lobby and in lines mean probably less people are gonNA go buy snacks. Because it's just more of a hassle. It feels like the going to struggle to make this work in a profitable way or wishing that on them at all. It just feels like it's GonNa be tough to get this stuff figured out. Yeah they'll probably just raise prices and that's why I think The home is were a lot of this content is going to be consumed and I do believe this is kind of the beginning of the end of movie theaters as we know it. I'm not saying movie theaters are going to go away. But I think it's going to change. And how they do it As a result of this virus I think only sped that transition. I believe this was going to happen anyway. But maybe over a period of ten or fifteen years. I think this is just GonNa make it happen sooner. All right and then Speaking of home theaters with projectors we found the top ten projectors based on a price range over at project central. We're GONNA go through the they have different categories so they have like under a thousand under three thousand under five thousand and over five thousand. We have links to the entire list. I believe they have ten of them. We're just going to give you the top one in each list and if you WanNa know what else is going on Go to our website and click on the link so I up as the under one thousand and the it's the OPTIMA. Gt Ten eighty HDR and this information is from Optima here. The OPTIMA GT adhd are is built for Gamers with short throw for easy setup and mobility ten eighty P HDR QUALITY. Four K input compatibility thirty eight hundred lumens for ultra bright performance in ambient light in enhanced gaming mode with one hundred twenty hertz refresh rate. The projector delivers a point. Four millisecond response time to ensure blur free visuals with no lag. The GT ten. Adhd are easily connects to a variety of gaming consoles media players and additional entertainment sources. It's the perfect game. Time companion and it is a ten. Adp GOP it has a short throw so you need to be three point eight inches away from the screen to get one hundred inch image on one hundred diagonal image on the screen? It goes for seven hundred ninety nine dollars and this was the September twenty nineteen model and then jump to the under three thousand dollar categories. That optimus show this is also from OPTIMA. Supercharge your huge screen experience with the thirty four hundred lumine. Four K ultra high DEF OPTIMA you. Hd Fifty X projector engineered for movies and gaming the YOU HD fifty x delivers incredible detail and vibrant colors. That bring the cinematic experience home. Gamers can take advantage of the ultra fast ten eighty P two hundred forty hertz. Refresh rate for blur free visuals with outstanding. Smoothness combining the blurb bursting refresh rate with enhanced gaming mode results in sixteen millisecond response. Time or twenty five millisecond at four K for a competitive gaming advantage resolution is Thirty forty by twenty one sixty thirty four hundred lumine. It's a lamp of course and it's about eight foot nine inches to get one hundred inch screen. So it's not a short throw. It's more of a typical throw distance. And it'll set you back fifteen hundred and ninety nine dollars all right and then in the under five thousand dollar category. This is my projector and another optima and believe it or not. There are other projectors on the list beyond the Optima but anyway so the Optima p. One delivers a razor sharp. Three thousand eight point three megapixel image allowing views viewers to project up to one hundred twenty inch image from just inches away. The optimus CINEMAX. I'm going to call it cinemax. P. One incorporates the latest mart plus features from optima including smart home compatibility with Amazon Aleady in Google assistant capabilities. If this and that support for seamless smart home automation would smart IOT devices and easy access to streaming services like Netflix Hulu Amazon prime through the OPTIMA marketplace the OPTIMA smart plus technology users can take control of their home theater with voice commands including power on and off the projector and pausing content and more and this is thirty. Eight forty by twenty one. Sixty deal it's a laser light and it can Throw a hundred inches from twenty two inches away. Now this grid. The device itself doesn't have to be twenty two inches away because the like unlike the other projectors The Lens is at the back of the projector so if the projector is like an additional eight or nine inches. That is what's included in that twenty two inches. Because I believe you only have to be about from the front of the machine about eight or nine inches away from the from the screen and it goes for thirty seven ninety nine all right and then the king the over five thousand dollar category swooping in and stealing it from Optima is the. Lg ELECTRONICS ISSUE EIGHTY-FIVE LA and LG says seeing is believing the sin. Abeam ultra short throw. Projector will throw a huge image with the brilliance and clarity of four K ultra high death at an incredibly short distance from the source. The issue eighty five. La's image warping function allows you to adjust screen distortion and set up a more precise screen using the twelve point adjustments. Onscreen GETS YOU A thirty eight. Forty twenty one sixty D. L. P. Resolution twenty seven hundred. Antsy lumens brightness. It's a laser projector as well and you can get a one hundred inch screen from only seventeen inches but again that same calculation seventeen inches to like essentially the back of the project or not the front and it's barely over five thousand dollars at fifty seven ninety seven and that is the July two thousand nineteen model but LG swept in with at least one item on the list. That was not an OPTIMA. And let's see so so I really am a big fan of the ultra short throw because now that means projector technology can be for anybody you do not need to have wired ceilings for HDMI and have power and then have it all mounted. It's very simple to do in fact I mentioned this before my next. Tv is going to be another one of these projectors. And I'm just GONNA get one of these screens and plop them on the wall and be done with it. It works great during the daylight. In fact I Brandon. I mentioned last week where I released a video on how to set up. Hdmi C E C control. One of the comments that was made on the video was that wow. I can't believe how bright that projector is in full daylight and had nothing to do with the HDMI. See they were just impressed. That it was so bright in full blown daylight and that does blow me away as well. Aright and then A lot of our listeners. Ask Us what's the best way to set up a distributed AV system and mainly for audio but sometimes they'll talk about video is well and in the old days of analog. It was a complex task that required a ton of wiring and heavy equipment But now that we have internet protocol almost everywhere. And that could be wired or wireless. It's much easier to do so. These are some things that consider setting up a distributed Av System before we get into that We'll talk about what the advantages are. The advantages are somewhat obvious. But you make use of an existing infrastructure both wired and wireless to distribute audio seize your to expand you can add more ports to a router you can add more devices on your Wi fi it also makes things like video wall simpler to do. And there's also size and cost analog equipment is bulkier and more costly and you have to get all of the amplifiers to run the audio all over all those analog lines run throughout your home So doing it over an IP system is simpler smaller sleeker. And you still have to wire but I think it's easier to use. Hdmi wires than having all those analog cables because he just send one HDMI Y or to your closet. Sorry Ethernet I said H E an Ethernet. Because in the old days you'd have to send a left and a right channel for audio and video so that was three cables to get one Av source up to wherever it was going But the infrastructure. The wiring topology is about the same thing. As I mentioned it's Kinda you wire everything into say a closet. You could even have your equipment there and Any distribution amps or whatever. So it's a start apology. But you don't have to do that so you can wire all your Cable Era Ethernet and your Ip to there but you can distribute the content your Sources for instance your Apple. Tv's your receivers Your Sonos all those kind of things can be distributed. So you don't have to have everything in a in a cabinet but you can't if you want and then run speaker cable to wherever the speakers are and another advantage is that you can mix and match different technologies. You get a lot more flexibility. I WANNA say a lot more flexibility. But you get a lot of flexibility allows you to you know mix things in and out because you're you're all going over that single. Ip Line versus having the the hardwired lines in place that are kind of fixed to that system that you put in when you put them in the walls and it's hard to expand So if you wanted to change things out in the future add more a different kind of capability or different kind of functionality. It runs over that same wire. That's already there You get different formats different. Resolutions all transmit over that same infrastructure without doing any conversions Makes it more flexible? And then so you might want to look into. Hdmi and the format that's coming out as Hdmi two-point one and you will want something. That is two point one compliant and there are some companies actually selling that. But there's really no way officially to test two point once. It is not an official two point one compliant cable so one of the things to look for when you are looking for a cable that claims to be two point. One compliant is look for the reputation of the company. Is this a company that you worked with on other cables and DID THEIR CABLES MEET? What their claims were if they did then. There's a good chance that they're going to do the same two point one because the specs out but there's just no way to test it yet at at the time of this recording and I know that's coming very shortly and then you'll have officially stamped two point one cables but in the meantime this is kind of what got look for And then do your research about the cable itself Look at reviews for instance of somebody else may have already bought this cable and they're trying to run They're leading leading or bleeding edge. They got eight K. TV and they're trying to send it eight K content so look and see if they're able to do it via those cables. Yeah and then the counterpoint. To the fact that you can mix and match different technologies. You do have maximum flexibility. But that obviously comes at a cost and so when you're looking to build it out one of the things you want to think about is can you do it at least from your initial go? Using a single ecosystem. Rice products are designed to work together. Seamlessly that's the way the manufacturer bills them installations easier. Setups easier additional devices appear in your control apps without the need for programming and it most maybe provide a specific name and location for the device. And then you also have a single point of contact for customer service or googling or reading up on things so it gives you the expandability to say. Hey I can mix and match different technologies. But when you're planning it out and you're building it I you know one thing to think about is can you build it out so at least you're I go your one dot o? Implementation is all within a single ecosystem. It'll make it simpler for you. You know in a really great example of that is Sonos. So let's say you started out with Sonos and the very everything works seamlessly together with their sonos APP and and is great but then somewhere along the line you decided to buy an apple product and they have this airplay to well turns out luckily Sonos has airplay to and you now have some other devices with airplay to there's an issue so now disown. Splaine airplay does apple blame Sonos and that has happened where companies will say. Well that's not an issue with our product is an issue with the with the infrastructure or whatever and that makes it a little more difficult but if all you had were sonos products in your ecosystem then Sonos is GonNa have to try and figure it out and they can't point the finger at someone else so these are just some concerns to think about. And I've been in situations where I've had companies pointing the finger at other companies than it does get a little irritating. Yeah in another advantage though. Not even mixing and matching different technologies but mixing and matching different products from an existing vendor like a Sonos is running things over. Ip It as soon as better devices and more functionality and can do more things you can take out an old one and put in a new one and it'll just work versus if you had hard wired lines run for a specific device even within an existing manufacturer if they upgraded might be that the wire that you ran the cable that you ran doesn't work with the newer device but over Ip. So you know you have that that growth expandability capability Even within a single ecosystem that you don't always have If you're not going over Ip so hopefully that will give you some things to think about if you're about to put together Av OVER IP system distributor audio distributed audio and video If you build something like that let us know.

The Sporting Life: 10-20-18

"Welcome to the sporting life with Jeremy shabby. Over the next hour. A track and field legend reflects on a pivotal moment in American sports history. Every moment with chick Uley right now, I'm just really thankful. People remember me from fifty years ago. It's certainly been a a wonderful during his Dan author, Gary Myers looks back on the famous breakout between Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, and then head coach. Jimmy Johnson took over teams losing a million dollars a month, and he turned it around within two years then became a high revenue, but that wasn't enough to him. All the accolades will go in towards Jimmy, and and that was the problem. Plus Norman. Chad says two time SuperBowl champion as seen better days. Ally manning is done. I love the like if you've been overrated for years that he's stupa balls tremendous. But if you watched you I, I watched all of you is regular season games, glass tennis while years. She just as not been in the top tier quarterbacks during the regular season. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy shop. You're going to be joined now by a man. I've known virtually my tire life. A man who fashioned one of the greatest moments in the annals of sports fifty years ago this week in Mexico City. When he broke the world long, jump record by twenty two inches jumping twenty nine feet two and a half inches two and a quarter inches shattering. The world Mark that was just over twenty seven feet. I'm speaking of course of the nineteen sixty eight Olympic gold medalist. Bob Beamon Bob, thank you for joining us. Great to hear from you. And this is a special week for me. I know Bob, I can't believe. I mean, fifty years. I was actually I was not quite yet alive, but I feel like I was alive because I grew up with stories of of what you chief in Mexico City. My father wrote a book about you a biography of you, which he titled the perfect jump. One of my favourite of my fathers, thirty three titles, and you guys had a very special relationship, and I feel like to some degree anyway, I was fortunate to inherit some of that, but take us back to October eighteenth nineteen sixty eight. You had been the silver medallist year before at the Pan Am games in the long jump previously known as the broad jump, and you were certainly one of the favorites for the gold medal, and you're competing against eager tear Ovanisian and Ralph Boston who'd won the golden sixty in the silver and sixty four. How confident to what degree did you think you could emerge with the championship in Mexico City? Well, Leah Pan. Am games happened in nineteen sixty seven, and I think that that was probably. The greatest experience that I can have in being in the international arena. It was getting me ready for the the big Olympic that that would be in nineteen sixty eight. So I was learning one. It would take to stay on top or be in the mix of of getting that gold medal in the Olympic Games. Of course, I took second in the in the long jump in Winnipeg, but it was a great experience for me. It kinda approved to help me down the road for sixty. We're speaking with Bob Beamon who fifty years ago this week on Cobra eighteenth nineteen sixty eight set the world long. Jump record shattered the world. Long. Jump record jumping twenty nine feet two and a half inches twenty two inches farther than any human had ever previously jumped. And in some ways, as many people have said since then, although there was there was some great competition. The eighties, early nineties with Carl Lewis in Mike Powell who would eventually break your record in Tokyo at the world championships in nineteen Ninety-one. Jumping twenty nine feet four and a half inches. You still have the second longest jump of all time. I mean, did you do you ever try to put that into perspective? Bob, that here we are half a century later and only Mike Powell and only once in Tokyo. Is anybody ever. Farther? Well, I think this week I'm just really visualizing they. They're jump in terms of, you know, the fifty years that it has laugh at and in addition to that it, it's it's the Olympic record Meyer Olympic record still stands. So I, I've lost a world record, but I'm in. I was in Mexico City yesterday and they. You have the name Dame the Olympic training center after me. So it just made me just feel so good that that the Olympic record still stands out to is when also that Mexico City or Mexico still has offered me my feets some fifty years ago, not even still the Olympic record holder in the long jump at eight point, nine meters or twenty nine feet two and a half inches, and Bob bet sixty eight Olympic track and field team. We had a discussion about it on the show few weeks ago with the author of a new book about that remarkable moment in time and that remarkable team, you could certainly make a case that was the greatest team ever assembled in track. It would be hard to deny that the gold medal for you. The gold medal for Lee Evans gold medal for Tom. Smith at two hundred meters two gold medal for Jim Hines and one hundred meters dick Fosbury in the high jump Bob Seger in in the pole, vault Al order in the discus. I mean, we could go on and on the four by one hundred four by four hundred. I think did Randy mats and win the shot put to, right. That's right. Bob, I mean, and then of course you know what happened with Smith and Carlos in the black power salute after the two hundred meters. You yourself had a history going into these games of of standing up. To big, it's you're suspended what you were in college for refusing to to compete in a segregated event. Can you tell us about that? What happened was it was a movement to human rights. What were you know what the boycott would have been? However, all the athletes blackout the decided to go ahead on and compete in nineteen sixty eight Olympics. So I I wasn't going to my past the sixty eight games because you just really never knew if you get hurt or your interest with not goes towards making the nineteen seventy two Olympic things. So I said, let me. Take advantage of of of what is going on now. So I decided say I decided I'm gonna go no matter what. So what happened was that John and Tommy Smith made a protest with the black glove, and they got suspended. By everybody, the head of the International Olympic Committee it. So you know, that was pretty alarming and disturbing to have that happen to to one of our team. They to actually see these guys go through just nothing but k who sticky with Bob beam in the nineteen sixty eight Olympic gold medalist. In fifty years later, still the Olympic record holder in the long jump at twenty nine feet two and a half inches. That's eight point, nine meters on the metric scale. But before we let you go, it's just an honor to be speaking to you, particularly this week on the anniversary of one of the great feats ever in sports. When you think back about that moment in time and my father was always this moment. Always fascinated him in one of the things that interested him was your personal story, which is so rich in I, I would. I would ask our listeners to go. Oh, look into it more more than we have time for right now, but you you, you found this perfect moment and you were just a kid at the time. You're twenty two years old. This perfect moment. No one could have even imagined you jumping this far or anyone jumping this far, you kind of destroyed the event for while, what is it like to achieve a certain kind of perfection at twenty two and and have that. At the center of your life for so long. I'm very happy about it. You know, they've also included in the dictionary a term. That they use called beaming s. so you, you know, every every moment with chick Yuli right now, I'm just really thankful that that people remember names. Fifty years ago. It's certainly been a a wonderful journey Bob Beamon. It's always a pleasure to speak to you, sir. Congratulations on all the celebrations of the anniversary of that spectacular feed in Mexico City. Fifty years ago this week still the Olympic record holder. Still the second longest long jump ever in competition official long jump ever in competition. Bob, Hope I get a chance to see you soon and speak to you again soon. Thank you for coming on the sporting life, not blood. It's my pleasure. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Gary Myers has been covering pro football practically since the dawn of the pro football era. He's the author of five books about the game, and his newest is how about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team, Gary. Thank you for joining us and German. It's my pleasure. Gary. Why the Cowboys other than the obvious that everybody talks about the Cowboys. No matter how much they are irrelevant to the conversation of who's going to win. Why a book now about the Cowboys? Well, I covered the Cowboys in Dallas for the Dallas Morning News from nineteen eighty one to eighty nine and it was it was the most fun time of my career simply because they were just so important so much part of the fabric of that city. That every story I wrote seemed to be in the paper at least the sports section, the most important story that they and I left there a few months after Jimmy and Jerry got there in nineteen eighty nine, but stayed in touch with them and wrote about them. And I've always just wanted to do a book that encompasses, would I call now the three years of the Cowboys? The Landry era did Jimmy Jerry era and the Jerry without Jimmy era. And and although they haven't been SU bone over twenty years, they're the most. Valuable sports franchise in the world at about five billion dollars and and the most popular sports franchise in the world. So I thought this was a good time to kind of pull back the curtain on that franchise, see how it operates. I spent a lot of time with with Jerry Jones and also is three kids. And I think there's a lot of information that has never been written about before we're sticking with Gary Myers about his new book, how about them Cowboys. Now, of course, that's that's a Jimmy Johnson quote from the glory days of the early nineties when they win three Super Bowls in four seasons to under Jimmy one with his guys playing for Barry Switzer had his Jerry feel about the title I didn't run by them. I pay. Stories that was my, that was my. Suggestion, my wife who not always a big football fan, but she's actually got a great sense of humor after she read through the book. I was gonna say, she must if she's married to you, Gary. Right. Oh, thank you very much. I appreciate that. But anyhow, after Jeremy, she goes, I got the perfect title I go. What do you got? She goes, how about Jerry? Does Dallas? And I actually thought that this is a family show, Gary. We can't go there. Well, I know, I know. But you know, we wouldn't have been any references to what the actual movie of Debbie does Dallas was about, but I thought it was really funny because in essence, you know, Jerry is the Cowboys now he certainly is. He certainly is, you know, I can't understand why. Now I wanna talk about you were there covering the Cowboys through the eighties? And of course the team was interesting, although it wasn't great for most of that period of time clearly. And in fact, at times it was lousy. But the quality of the people. Covering that team. I mean, that's unparalleled. I mean, the nineteen eighties in Dallas that market the talent covering four, the three papers, the morning news, the times herald in the star telegram. I mean, that must have been the kind of. That working that beat. It must've been, it must have been exciting. And at the same time, terrifying always worrying like whether you were going to scoop the other guys or they were going to scoop you before before you had a chance without question it was it was exhilarating, but filled with anxiety and and you're right. The towns that was at those three papers during the eighties, it was just amazing. I mean, when I first got in the morning news towards the end of the eighty, one sees that the columnist with skip Bayless. And so I worked with him for a couple of years before he, he went to the enemy. He went to the times herald when I've stayed friendly with skip over the years and working with him was just, I mean, I learned a lot. I was twenty seven years old at the time and and and skip was just such a polished com. This that I, I really did enjoy working with him, but, oh, he, he was unbelievable. I mean really was, and he was always spa. Got on, and it is assessment of what was going on with the team. He was tough on Landry I, it was just terrific. But you know, I I live in these two apartment complexes for one for four years, and then I moved the last five years. I was there and you know, I don't even know if they have is anymore, but the newspapers, I used to get the morning news delivered, but I never want to increase the circulation of the times herald so I didn't get delivered, but every morning at seven o'clock. Oh good to the box back in our day when they had newspaper boxes, I certainly do, and I think the, I think it might have been a quarter then and I stick it in the machine. And the first thing you know, you open up to the to the to the sports section of times herald going, please please don't want them have a bannered story that I didn't know about. And really I lived in fear of the eight o'clock phone call from my sports center. You know, why didn't you have that? Unfortunately, in eight years that I was there, I. The times we'll go out more of those phone calls about my stories and vice versa. I'd like to think that, but it was. It was the greatest newspaper War. I think in the history of this country or at least in the last, you know, forty or fifty years, and the battleground was the Cowboys. So any journalist who enjoys the job would just, I mean, it was just so appealing and knowing that if you had a big story, that's all they'd be talking about in the entire city that day. And then on the cases that you get beat because everybody gets speed, there's there's no worse feeling that I've had my career. Again, we're speaking with Gary Myers about his new book. How about them Cowboys inside the huddle of the stars in legends of America's teen Gary, you cover those guys for decade in the eighties, you saw the rebirth of the team with Jerry Jones came in, he brought his college teammate, Jimmie Johnson. To me, you know the story of the end of that relationship Jones and Johnson is so sad because there was so much potential for further greatness. What made it impossible for them to continue to work together? That's a great question. And I think when they were losing early on, especially when they were one fifteen in the first season, it bonded them because they were getting criticized some everywhere they looked at. You know, these guys are over their heads. You gotta bumpkin from Arkansas owning the team, a college coach from Miami. I don't know what they're doing trays that does play in Herschel Walker. This is worse than into the Landry year. So they had each other and they leaned on each other and they became really close. I mean, they were, they were okay friends in college and they room together on the road because of the 'cause it was by their last names Johnson and Jones. But it wasn't. They didn't room together because they're our best friend. Ends, but they became really close the first couple of years in Dallas. But then when they started winning, they're just wasn't enough credit to go around. Jimmy was getting all the credit to building the team up which he did. I mean, that was his strength. He was a great coach, but he's better in personnel and and Jerry just, you know, he took. He took over team, Jeremy. That was losing a million dollars a month, and he turned it around within two years. They then became a high revenue team, but that wasn't enough for him because all the all the accolades were going towards Jimmy and and that was the, that was the problem. There wasn't enough credit to go around and it turned out they couldn't stand the sight of each other up to five years and Jerry pay Jimmy two million dollars to leave seeking Gary Myers about his new book, how about them Cowboys. And when I think about, you know, the fact that it will be twenty three years at a minimum between Cowboys Super Bowl victories. That's a Suming. They win this year and all of that. A potential. You know, there are a lot of easy explanations, you know that that, you know Jerry was too much of a sentimentalist for years, and he wasn't a cold calculated business or football personnel guy in the in the model of a Bill Belichick. But there are a lot of franchises that have never been new, Super Bowl still. There are even more, of course that have never won the Super Bowl when you think about Jerry Jones's legacy. Now, of course, he's in his seventies. He has been running a team for thirty years, not as a businessman, but as a football man, what what are the thoughts that come to mind? I think that. Will be criticized. He's in the whole thing because with a tremendous businessman, he is like you just mentioned and how he changed the way the NFL the business and taught multimillionaires had to be multi-billionaire is, but I think his downfall on the football side of it is falling in love with the idea of having the title of general manager and it should have just been more of those titles. Okay. Jerry, you can be the general manager, but we're going to run the football part of it really. And he he's rolling up the sleeves and he's involved in all the football stuff and whereas he's not that he gets. Article or that that much of a a tyrant, that if he gets out voted in the in the draft room, he doesn't insist and the Johnny Menzel situations. A perfect case. He was only one that wanted take Menzel and he got outvoted and didn't force them to do it. But I think his downfall is not being not hiring a general manager q. compete with the Ron woolfe sin and the and the George Young and and guys like that who Bobby Beth herd's and don't polling. And he needed somebody like that in there who can really run the football operation with the Cowboys compete on that level and Jerry a lot of his decisions you saying, based on emotion and and bad information and he, he just, he won't give it up. I mean, I have a whole chapter in the book about Jerry's a general manager, and I guarantee you when you finish reading that chapter you're going, why is he. This, he's such a smart guy and he wouldn't run any of his other businesses. This way. He just doesn't know what he doesn't know. I guess that's what that's the best way. I can phrase ego gets in the way sometimes for these things we're speaking with Gary Myers, the New York Times bestselling author, longtime pro football writer, and TV presences. Well, on on each views inside the NFL. His new book is how about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team and Gary. Before I let you go as New York guy, longtime New York, sports media guy. Of course, we lost Dave Anderson at the age of eighty nine. Who I mean, you know, in addition to all his talents which you can read about, you can hear about, I never heard anyone say Edward back, Dave. He's one of the two gentlemen of the business. I just wanted your thoughts on Dave and his legacy. You know, it's it's interesting that I'm not a big Twitter guy, but in reading all the tributes, Dave on Twitter from people who whose lives he touched in one way or the other in the media. I, I've never seen anybody be so universally loved as Dave and my experiences with him. He, he was so good at his job as a Pulitzer prize winner or noble as post, wasn't it, pull it. Yeah. And he was a better person than he was as a writer. He was his. He never has a tainted. One help anybody in the business. It didn't matter if you work for the times or not. You can always go up to date and say, ask him a question. He's love sitting around the pressroom before giant jet games and just talking to everybody. And I really learned a lot from him and he was such a gentleman, but he wasn't like he took it easy on his subjects. I mean, he could be biting in there, but nobody ever held it against him because he's such a, he so professional. And he was one of those guys also that if he wrote something negative, he would make sure to show up in case anybody had a problem with it. And I think that's really admirable. Something that I've always tried to do, you don't wanna be a guy that ripped people, and then they don't see if it three weeks. So I hadn't. Seen him in a number of years. He even after he retired from the times he would come around to some giant jet cans, but I hadn't seen him in a couple of years, but but just really a wonderful man, Kerry thank you for that memory of Dave, Gary Myers new book is how about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team. It's always a pleasure speaking, Gary. Thank you so much and hope to have you back on the show at some point soon. I would love to thanks so much. Have me on Jeremy. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. This is the time of year when it brings us tremendous pleasure to welcome to the show. One of our favorite guests and as regular listeners know, we don't use the designation legend lightly on the sporting life, but it applies and it applies a hundred percent to Norman Chad joins us now, Norman, thank you for being with us. Let's get this over quickly and painlessly as possible. So we can have a safe segment and move on with the rest of our lives. Norman my producers, tell me that it's been difficult booking you what's going on, what what's going on in your life? What what else do you possibly have going on that could be more important than being on the sporting life? That's interesting since I get served court papers all the time in the same spot, right on my count on the person find in America. I'm listed in the phone book. People can find my cell number. You're the people are difficult. So I'm glad it. You should work in Washington. Turned it around. You know what I've noticed over to actually, it's funny because you used to write about him so much. I remember when I was a child and I would read you in the national and you would write about Howard Cosell who was still nominally in the business at that time. And before that, you'd been writing about TV in the post for the great George Solomon, and it seems to me over the years. It's almost like one of those art projects where the photos dissolve into each other, you're becoming Howard. I can't believe I, you know your GPS went on and I couldn't believe when I realized this is the direction you're going with this. I have not become Howard. Okay. I think you're becoming Howard. I mean, that's a compliment. He's one of the great figures in in the history of television. Yeah, we'll have become Howard. It's because ink-stained wretches like yourself down now. Good. I can't believe you still doing the sporting life. It's like twenty nothing. We we give too much regard to the sporting. Like how many times I have to tell you this. When it come onto the, you want you do the gardening life. Why don't you do the health maintenance organization life wants do the operatic life for operatic life, but what does the word is off? The sporting life has no meaning. I would be happy to. Nobody pays me to talk about that stuff. They barely pay me to talk about sports, how you just two million other people talking about sports need a one billion number or podcasts be run out of Applebee's. Why don't you go to a different direction? I'll tell you this. So here's the difference. Norman, we're speaking with the great Norman Chad, the couch, slouch the poker fishy Nado recently inducted into the world poker hall of fame with, I think ninety nine percent of the vote on the first ballot. Okay. I'm not in a poker hall I speak. I made that up voting fan. There is a difference. I know you did so. Okay. You know the difference between this show and all those other shows Norman is this is the show, and this was just the other week. We'll have a conversation for twenty minutes on this show with the author of a new book about the World Series in the deadball era. Okay. Nobody else does that. That's what's special about this show. Nobody else's talking about deadball baseball. We had a segment once. I don't know if you remember this with great George Kalinski the great photographer official photographer of Madison Square Garden, and he he had a published a new book. It was a collection of his photographs of rabbis around the world. That's the kind of stuff we do on this show that nobody else is doing. You won't hear that unlimited. And do you know why no one else is doing that, you know, that know what don't you do something on the sociology of turtle white on the Galapagos. If she how many listeners you get deadball era, please. What was the second one? You mentioned rabbis George Quincy's rabbis book. Oh. Hop is. Do you have a legitimate question? Do you ever do Jim and air you want to deal with today? You know, it's, it's interesting that you mentioned the Galapagos because, of course you know, Charles Darwin, the beagle origin of species, all that stuff. Diversity of life of Lucien. The other a couple of weeks goes in Seattle, and you know who is on the airport, speaking of evolution, Jane Goodall. You seriously saw Jane in Seattle airport. I saw Jane Goodall, and we took a picture I asked herself. I think she might be the first person I've ever asked for selfie. You might be the first person ever asked her for celsius. Well, it's very possible. You know what I want to talk about those in all seriousness, semi legalized gambling. Since the last time you appeared here on the sporting life, gambling has essentially sports gambling. That is has essentially been legalized throughout the forty eight contiguous as well as Alaskan Hawaii. How is this going to change the nature of what you do? I would imagine that there is a mad rush for your services. Ios, you'd think there would be before answer that you just reminded me when he said the forty eight, contiguous and Mabel to answer your question. At the end of the says, we ever kept their what you're not what US states are furthest north south east and west, why you that later. Now, as far as I can, that's easy. Go ahead, speak I, it might look easy to make. I know you're smart guy through this before, but that's gonna probably be able to get that. But you would think that I would see if there was like a scouting combine for gambling media stuff. You know the equivalent of the NFL, whatever you have to go through all the chops. You think I'd be like a first round draft was I'd be like a lottery pick for gambling in this country on the media? Yeah, it's done virtually nothing for me. Okay. I actually got a call from Fox Sports to ask if I wanted to do their new, lock it in a one hour daily, whatever it is that's home. I think about it and then they never. They never called me back. They I got, I got eat out my cousin Sal, but before we get, I don't wanna. I don't wanna trash present salaries. Man, I'm sure he has last date, but. But the key with the gambling being thing, you know, we're not gonna. We're not gonna have a million people a million millions millions and millions and millions of mills people now becoming having a gambling problem. Well, small numbers, but the curtain is gonna be pulled back on this as you can watch. Watch lock it in you watch the TV. Gee, there's horse racing network. Does a Sunday morning. I think everybody's be doing gambling, but the curtains be pulled back on the whole on like the wizard of Oz or the wizard of Oz back there and you'll find out that nobody knows anything. All the experts are wrong half the time or more like the rest of us. So that's the only thing that's the key point. You know, Norman, I'm working on a thirty for thirty about Buster Douglas and his win in Tokyo. February eleventh nineteen ninety. Where were you when that fight took place? Now, it's interesting. I, I don't have a good memory for most sporting events, but I was on the couch and I the national pet just started the national sports daily. The late lamented, national spa. Daily, which has been replaced now by the much much hated and tainted the athletic tainted and take just my wow, that's a strong statement. Go ahead. We'll get to that a moment. Okay. They just started publication. And actually that was a gambling thing where I told people with Mike Tyson, you know, I don't care if he's a forty two one favorite. He's gonna win. Fifty straight fights. No one's going to beat them. So you lay the forty two to one odds? I can't. I think BUSTER was a forty two one on. So I was an absolute shock when at whatever time in the morning because I was not watching the fight when I found out that buses midnight. Yeah, it was midnight eastern time. Yeah. Well, anyway, when I found whenever I found out this Buster Douglas beating Mike Tyson, I just thought it was some type of plank. I didn't think it was possible. So I was shocked. I remember writing about it on what I wrote about it, and I would have lost that bet. I would have lost the, you know, taking Tyson's forty one. I believe there were only it was six or seven American reporters covering the fight. For the print media and one of them was your national colleague Sam nelin oh, I remember Sam. So he was at the fight. Sam was at the fight, I believe. Yeah. That's right. So you're working. You're working. You're looking at thirty on a thirty for thirty. Well it's on busters whole story basically up through that fight and we're calling it forty two to one. And you know it was only the Mirage that posted odds auditing realize that either I when he sometimes you have a fight or you have something that they don't, they can't. They just can't put a lineup for because all the action was go. One way that's fascinated under the Mirage, two that not only that, but it was forty two one. Of course, the underdog wins in the Meraj still made money off the fight because there was so much money on Tyson at forty two to one the people, Betty like sixty thousand dollars to win fifteen hundred dollars as stupid as I would have been. If I had sixty grand, I would affect sixty grand a win, fifteen hundred dollars. Well, that's a very interesting thirty to thirty. But I think once you're trying to do something on the ball boxing era, which is. Much more interesting. Deadball boxing prize, not familiar with. It was actually started by Abner Doubleday and this is when boxing's all they were all they work. They each were in the reasons the deadball air is because they both just wore a batting loves and they had a catcher's mask on, I will not have you on this show Norman besmirched. The name of one of the heroes of Gettysburg. I, I apologize. I have to apologize. I do look forward to the thirty on shed the couch slouch. Before we let you go Norman, it's always a pleasure. You'll I manning done question is that I mean, that's a fair question behind mighty on your on your east sixty thrown with your career and perfect life and bomb. Sitting here with a wife might allow this morning to read off. It's an IBM. Ally manning is is done. I, I love the lie. 'cause he's been overrated for years. I mean, the two Super Bowls are tremendous, tremendous. If you watch you lie and I've watched all of you is regular season games for the last ten or twelve years, like do he just is not been in the top tier quarterbacks during the regular season. He was way too many interceptions and so on. So ally, I, you know, you'll have a good career afterwards doing whatever he does book asking commercials. But yes, he's pretty much done. Norman. Chad is the couch slouch. He's our friend and we love him. Thank you Norman later later in the show, please answer the US states that are north south east and west. Let me know if you've got it right. I'll let you know. Thank you to Orman. Thank you very much. I'm Jeremy shop and you can listen to new editions of the sporting life every Saturday and Sunday morning on ESPN radio and ESPN app beginning at six AM eastern time.

"Great news. There's a quick way you can save money, switch to Geico Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price, and it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance go to Geico dot com today and see how much you could save. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy chef. In nineteen sixty eight Mexico City. There was controversy. There was turmoil, and there was also unprecedented success for the United States Olympic track and field team among the gold medalists on that team. Arguably the greatest team ever assembled in the sport Bill Toomey in the decathlon at order in the discus Tommy Smith in the two hundred meters, Jim hides at one hundred meters you could go on and on so many great performers, legendary track and field athletes, and of course much of it. Overshadow didn't even mention dick Fosbury in the high jump Bob Seger in in the pole vault and of course much of it overshadowed by what happened with Tommy Smith and John Carlos on the medal podium after the two hundred meters with their power sloop. Well, all of that is the end of the story that begins with the qualifications with. The trials for those Olympic track and field competitions, and they are the subject of a new book by Bob Burns, the track in the forest, the creation of a legendary nineteen sixty eight US Olympic team in Bob Burns joins us. Now, Bob, thank you for being with us. You Bob, I didn't even mention even Bob Beamon who's achieve in Mexico City might have been the greatest of all his achievements twenty nine feet two and a half inches in the long jump. A breaking the world record by twenty two inches a record that would stand for twenty three years. And now even all these years later, fifty years later only once in competition. That was my Powell with a world record in Tokyo in nineteen ninety one his anyone surpassed min in Mexico City up. What made it possible for team with so many incredible individual talents to come together this particular place in moment in time. Whereas he said it wasn't phenomenal group of people. And I, I mean, I guess. Where held the trials, you could say that they could have held them in Elko Nevada, and it was still would have been a great team, but because of the Mexico City Olympics were seventy three hundred feet. The United States Olympic committee decided we need to have a tiny camp and the final trials at a similar altitude, and they wound up picking eco summit which is just outside of late south Lake Tahoe, California. And they built a track in the what was basically the parking lot of the little ski hill, and he was they left hundreds of trees in the track, and these guys were up there for two months, and I think it bring them together. It's still an individual sport, but you mentioned all the turmoil that was going on that year. This was kind of a respite in what was a lot in a lot of centers really hellacious year speaking with Bob Burns bet his new book to track in the forest, the creation of legendary nineteen Sixty-eight US Olympic team. And and how did the trial in this. Case really helped shape and mold that team that would do such incredible things in the fall in Mexico City. But main thing was that it was the first time that the trials were held on the Olympic schedule, and then it's also the first time that they had a training camp before, and there's lasted six to eight weeks. So then they almost two hundred people were up up at Tahoe. Most of them were living in prayers across from the track. They were together for a long time, and you know, I mean, obviously it got more serious as the trials came closer, but I do think that it led a lot of athletes realize that Tommie Smith and John Carlos were just like them. I mean, they were people trying to win an Olympic medal, and I think it did brain guys together, and I certainly it was an incredible means before world record set it go summit. And then as they were six world record set by the US men in Mexico City. I just think that that time up there was. It was. It was something that will ever be replicated. They've never done it since probably won't. And it was. It was just really an almost all of the people admit it was just one of the greatest time. So their lives, which is an interesting thing to say, because you think of what was going on the boycott movement. Harry Edwards was among those people. I guess you'd put it suggesting strongly advising, some of the athletes not to partake in the game. Is that a fair characterization of what was going on? Oh, yeah, definitely. The I mean researching Harry got his much more press than anybody leading up to the, you know, the Olympic Games. He admits in retrospect that he never expected the boycott to work. He was. He was managing it as a as a statement more than that. And by the time they got to echo summit or boycott. The aperture decided we're not in a boycott. We're going to quote unquote. Do our own thing. When we get to Mexico City, they were spending income to eco summit by that point. So he was sort of out of the picture, but it was still everything was there were a lot of news people up at Tahoe saying, what are you guys gonna do? What are you guys gonna? Do you gonna this that? And so there was particular pressure on Smith, Lee Evans and John Carlos who were kind of who were the three main guys of the Edwards group out of San Jose. The Evans degrade quarter-mile and we're speaking again with Bob birds that his new book about the nineteen sixty eight Olympic track and field trials, which of course are prologue to the great performance in Mexico City. So many legendary performers and performances. Many of the greatest athletes ever in their specific disciplines. I come to my interest in this topic through heredity. My father wrote two books about u. s. nineteen sixty eight track and field team members. Bob Beamon and Tom Waddell who finished sixth in the decathlon and would go on to found. The gay games to meet the beam in achievement is singular. IRA talked about that. But so of course, his order who won his fourth consecutive discus in Mexico City. And if you talk about an athlete who knew how to perform under pressure who found the absolute best in himself when accounted most, I don't know if anybody surpasses our order, but he was always in rough shape going into the Olympics. Where did Allah order stand when he was at the trials that go summit? He said, unfortunately, I'll just really say I started working on this before some of these people pass away, so I I wasn't able to talk to order. And he said that was the only trials where he was worried about making the team. He finished third, Jason investor was was the dominant throw that year. But it is interesting that all of the other athletes were, you know, the white guys that were watching both Silvester and order up there. They were all just in their heads, they were going, he's gonna be Seles during Mexico. Oh city. 'cause I mean order you what you said about him, I completely agree with he was the conflict competitive. We're speaking with Bob Burns about his new book to track in the forest, the creation of legendary nineteen sixty eight US Olympic team. And of course you know the, I seventy five years you could. You could say the I ninety years of limping track and field competition. The US was utterly dominant and the Olympics for long portion of that time amounted to glorify track and field competition. That was the most important component of the Olympic Games. Things have changed somewhat. You could argue over the last thirty forty years and certainly the US does not dominate the way that it once did in track and field. If nineteen sixty eight is the apotheosis of US dominance in track and field. How do we get to that point? Why? Why was the country producing almost every discipline, at least on the men's side guys. Who would be legends wasn't part of it was a, it was a bigger. It was more popular sport than I mean, I'm, you know, going through the archives of newspapers. It was. I was just amazed at how often you know college dual meets were on the front of a sports section. I, I just think there was more I would probably some of those athletes might have been lost to a different sport now I to me it was I don't say it was in the baseball football basketball class, but I think track was probably fourth or fifth, and then you know the list of top American sports. And as you said, we had dominated the Olympics other years before that, certainly. But this this team was primarily it was a speed and jumping team, and those guys Tommy Smith and Bob Beamon. Those are those are among the very best of all time. Bob. Why did you want to take on this project fifty years later? Well, it actually I had written about it in two thousand. Prior to the Olympic trials coming to Sacramento because it was the first time they've been in northern California since eco summit. And I mean, I found it was really a fascinating subject just that they, you know, put this track in the middle of a forest, but it wasn't until twenty fourteen when I kind of spearheaded a effort to make eco summit a state landmark. You know, when you see those signs by the road, and for that ceremony in two thousand fourteen a dozen of the guys, including Smith and Carlos came up or the the forest service put on a an event and just in being around those guys, I just thought, wow, I wonder if there's a book and this and Portuguese, I found somebody that was going to publish it. And I do think it's a, it's it's definitely an unusual story. I've always been fascinated by the nineteen sixty eight Olympic track and field team. In fact, when my favorite mementos my father left me is a nineteen sixty eight. It's an Olympic flag. And it's autographed by many members of the men's track and field team from nineteen sixty eight. I think Scott order, it's got Mel Pender dick Fosbury Eric Klein, Eric Klein, interestingly enough, the triple jumper, signed it twice. Rick Sloane who I think finished fifth into the cat line. Ralph Boston, Randy Matson out order Bill Toomey Jim, Ryan, Carlos. I mean Jim Hines was the fastest man in the world. So I mean, look at this right? Jim Hines won the hundred meters. Tommy Smith when the two hundred Lee Evans won the four hundred. Willie Davenport won the hundred ten meter hurdles. The US won the four by one hundred US won the four by four hundred five, very when the high jump Seagram won the pole vault beaming on the log. Jump Madsen won the shot. Put order, won the discus. Toomey won the decathlon. I believe it's it's ridiculous. And at the same time, the American women were not so dominant, but Wyomia Taya's won the hundred meters Madeline manning when the eight hundred and the American women won the five four. By one hundred. Has there ever been such an aggregation of talent on one men's track and field team? If I would say no. But I mean there are you could say the nineteen sixty two Olympic team with phenomenal. But I think the combination of how good they were with the politics that were surrounding it to me that just kinda me. It just gave them a place in history that probably no other Olympic track team will ever have. So I mean, I would say, no, that was raised, win, win. The trials are taking place. What are the indications? What clues are there that there is going to be this? This moment this climactic moment in Mexico City. And I'm talking, of course about what happened with Smith and Carlos after the two hundred meter final. Do mean for performance wise? What? No. I mean, I mean. There was going to be some kind of a a reckoning in Mexico City politically. Says that he, he came up with this idea or he started really thinking about that. He had to do something on the victory stand. When the team left eco summit and was in Denver for a couple of days he met with a call. Ex-college teammate named s. p. Sappho and s t set remembered that conversation s he played for the Denver Broncos at the time. And he said he could just see it and Smith that he was extremely preoccupied. And it was just like you said, after all, we've been through this year, I have to do something and he was he was the ringleader, he and Evans Carlos kinda came on a little later. And I think the the actual, you know, raised fist was pretty spontaneous once they got to Mexico City, but all of the athletes they they did little protests like black socks and things, but spending Carlos obviously put themselves out there. And I mean, they were kicked out of the Olympic village. They were. There was this a major controversy after they did that the some of the US team claimed they wanted to go home. But I, I think that they were just kind of stewing on it for a couple of months. Particularly Tommy Smith Jesse Owens was among those people who scolded them came into locker room, told them in effect that they had acted in a manner unbecoming athletes representing the United States. He would later have a change of heart. In fact, he titled I think one of his books I have changed in reconsidered the implications of nineteen sixty eight, but but in INSERM now, of course, Smith and Carlos are our heroes at the time. How were they perceived to me? That is one of the most interesting things about the whole deal. I mean, I was a young kid. My dad was by no means a racist, or I mean, he was a liberal and he did not like what Smith and Carlos did. I mean, I'm a sixth grader watching it. I didn't. You. Have my own really opinions. I think there's all they were their lives right afterwards were terrible, and now they're considered. I think you know bomb said that he's feed them at the White House. They, I think people realize that you know, in the context of all the violence and things that have happened in American history, that what they did was actually a pretty, you know, pretty noble gesture, really. I think most most people have come around on that new doubt. We're speaking with Bopper instead his new book to track in the forest, the creation of legendary nineteen sixty eight U S Olympic team, and I'm going to come back again to in before we let you go. How far did Beamon jump at the trials? He jumped twenty seven, six, which was passed the world record. He only took like two jobs, but it was wind, aided, he, it was by that point. I think even Ralph Boston knew that this guy was going to be very dangerous if he could get his steps down. Beaming is an interesting part of the second. Summit story because he had he had been kicked off the team you tap because he joined in a boycott of a meter BYU. So he was his training on his own for like two months before the trials. And when he got eco summit when he says, is that you know he just latched onto Smith and Carlos and Evans guys who really worked hard who were, you know, had good training habits, and I think that his time up there being in says that it it just, you know, totally took him do different level, and then you saw what he did in Mexico City. Why? Why don't we have long jumpers anymore? Who can challenge the records that have stood for so long? That's a good question. We've had some, but we, we certainly haven't had the Ralph Boston Bob Beamon, Carl Lewis, Mike Powell type of town in the event. I don't know. Maybe they're doing other sports. It's amazing that beaming is you said, I mean, yes. His record was broken in nineteen Ninety-one by Mike. Ow, but it's still the second longest jump of all time. It's amazing fifty years in track and field. Really and and correct me if I'm wrong and Bob of for all of his talent never jumped obviously twenty nine again never jumped twenty eight again and I believe never jumped twenty seven again after the jump in Mexico City, you're correct your your house slowly, right? He jumped one more year and jump fairly well. Then he retired. He joined the pro circuit for a little while and showed you know he was good, but no, he never even came close to that yet. We've been speaking with Bob Burns about his new book about what you could argue was the greatest team ever symbol. Although there for the most part individuals competing under the same banner, not in a team sport, the nineteen sixty eight US Olympic track and field team. So many legends on that team. So many gold medalists. The book is the track in the forest, the creation of legendary nineteen Sixty-eight US Olympic team, and it's been a pleasure having Bob Burns here to talk about it. Thank you, Bob, thank you. I'm Jeremy shop. And you can listen to new editions of the sporting life every Saturday and Sunday morning on ESPN radio and ESPN app beginning at six AM eastern time.

Ep. 2: Old Poop, Ticks and Getting Drunk

"From meters world news headquarters in bozeman Montana this cows weaken review with Ryan cow gallon. Now, here's Cal this week talking about among other things, copper lights copyright as classy name rolled poop, fossilized feces. If you are the issuer the layer Downer of a cop relate, you are its author biologists. And anthropologists are interested in copper relates because they are evidence of the animals behavior rather than morphology as in you can tell what it's been eating which is telling in addition to old dried up Deng today, I'm going to touch on fish birds, poachers, snakes ticks getting drunk and general outdoors goings on. But before we get into the news from big wide world burst. I'm going to tell you about my world. As it turns out and still recovering. From my Turkey hunt in the spring green hills outside of Nashville, Tennessee, I woke up the other morning with the Tennessee tech, a hitchhiker, if you will and bedded in my armpit, this was troubling for a number of reasons one is being in your mid thirties that just doesn't feel great question your ability to clean yourself. And then there's the simple creepy feeling of discovering parasites on yourself on my way, home from Tennessee sitting Nashville airport this where it gets real exciting hacking away at my emails, and the delta lounge I feel an etch and find tick embedded on the back of my arm man, that sucks than I felt another drop out of my rapidly receding hairline and on my shoulder. This was enough tick activity to get me fully grossed out up out of my seat into action. So they're am completely strip naked. Bathroom of the delta lounge performing a full-on tick check where I find it tick embedded in my scrotum. I only bring this up because I am big on honesty and quite sincerely. When a man finds a disease carrying parasite, and what the old timers would call your soft parts, it's real sinking feeling ticks attach themselves to host by questing, which is climbing to a vantage point now allow them to either grab or drought onto an animal's. They pass by tics and carry a number of diseases, most notable being lines disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, which are both bacterial infections that are introduced to humans through contact with the offending tick ticks need to be attached for twenty four hours or longer in order to transmit so catch Murli prevalence of tick borne illnesses is steadily increasing in the US. For instance, there's been an over three X increase in confirmed lines cases since nineteen ninety seven now onto fish for those of you waiting on the Minnesota whitefish record to be broken. It's been a long time. Coming quick facts about the lake weights issues. It is the most commercially valuable freshwater fish in Canada here in the states, sometimes regarded as a trash fish Europeans. Her mad about the row commercial white fishermen who harvest fish trip with trap. Nets can make as much or more from exporting caviar as they do selling fillets. Any house the Minnesota whitefish record from nineteen ninety nine has been busted by first time ice anger, his thirteen pound nine point one ounce. Whitefish came in at almost thirty inches in length and twenty two inches and Gert in Montana. We'd call that a big Whitey. While the angler was nude ice fishing. He's an old hand at noodling for Flathead catfish noodling or tickling is when you catch a Flathead by inserting hand into their mouth and allow them to bite down on your hand when the cat bites U-Haul it from the water the catfish noodling record is eighty five pounds two ounces the all time Flathead record for regular fishing with your standard old drought and real setup is over one hundred twenty three pounds that fish was from Kansas. If you think pulling fish through the ice or ground them by the mouse, sounds cruel or if you think who cares. It's just a fish take a look at the case. Michael Ray Hinson, not to be confused with the wonderful, Texas musician. Mike appea- Hinson Michael Ray Hinson was charged with one count of abandonment of an animal and three counts of misdemeanor. Cruelty to animals Hanson was victim from his home in New Hanover county, North Carolina and left behind neglect. Did six inch Oscar fish authorities found the Oscar in deplorable conditions with parasitic hole in the head disease. Yes. Hole in the head disease. Apparently common problem in countered by aquarium and who's ius. Good thing for handsome, New Hanover county district. Attorney Ben David determined that animal cruelty statutes, don't apply to fish, as the DA stated, we take very dim view of anyone who would abuse any creature greater small think about that. The next time you see a bunch of goldfish in plastic bags at the fair or having forbid in the bottom of your fishing bucket. Speaking of protections for fish check, this one out it probably goes without saying that fish in the desert or rare. But would you guess that death valley is home the rarest known fish on earth the devils hole? Located not all that far from Las Vegas, Nevada is part of the Ashman does complex which is in turn part of the death valley, national park complex is comprised of seeps and springs. Bring fossil water which is water that seeped into the aquifer millennia ago to the surface. What could be more tempting than water in the desert, right, right? Devils hole is a seriously protected place. Ten foot fences highly controlled highly monitored in two thousand sixteen small group of board drunk and armed desert welders decided for reasons unknown to go for a swim, the boys get through the fans and insured order. We've given illegal skinny Dipper in devils hole. Skinny dippers. A convicted felon in possession of a shotgun during swim. He manages to step onto the small shelf of rock that is that percenter of life at devil's hole. When the National Park Service crew is made aware of this violation they show up to investigate as it turns out, it looks as though the disturbance of the pool in devils hole resulted in the death of a rare pup fish when I say rare. I mean, the devil's hole pup fish is one of the rarest fish on the planet is Teini shimmery. Blue fish is only found there in the waters of devils hole. The devils hole up fish has been on the endangered species list since the list was created while we don't know for absolute certain at this fellow killed the pup fish circumstantial evidence pointing very decidedly in that direction. So what's the punishment fewer in anything here? Let it be. This. Don't go drinking and messing with the endangered species. Act are skinny dippers was finally sentenced recently and got nine months in the clink for the essay violation. For months for the trespassing and destruction of property and has to pay fourteen thousand in restitution, the National Park Service and top it all off the Queen Mother of all punishments pon release the devils hole skinny Dipper will be forbidden to enter federal public lands for the rest of his life. And this is where I start to feel bad for Dipper, this guy and his buddies made really bad decisions deplorable when he think about wiping species off the face of the earth for the sake drunken, dumb assery things, they'll likely regret for the rest of their lives and should mind you, but imagine you live in Nevada and you've been banned for life from eighty four point nine percent of your home state eighty four point nine as the percentage of federally managed to land in Nevada. You've basically been sentenced to live in Las Vegas. And that sounds cruel and unusual. The me and the spirit of reform. I'd rather see the dip percents to cleaning up the desert as opposed to being banned from let's go from little blue fish to the big and too. The alligator gar. A couple of guys on the brazos river landed a seven foot seven inch alligator gar weighing in a hundred ninety eight pounds the head alone with twenty five now this sounds like a beast, but the world record game out of Texas and went two hundred and seventy nine pounds these creatures date back to the Cretaceous period. Meaning alligator gar have been swimming for at least sixty six million years. If you watch the movie Jurassic world, the dinosaur jumps out of the water and eats the T Rex hybrid at the end. That's Moses sore the Moser and the Gars swam at the same time. Obviously, the gar is still around and the Moses or ISM. And that's how we get the term living fossil some of our favorite living fossils, horseshoe crabs snapping turtles possums and the tastiest of all the American pronghorns antelope. Here's a few more fun facts about the gar scales. Stretch are called allows Moyed scales. Scales that don't Gan. No it scales. Gar- have Gannett scales? Making hack series bite without affect one reason. The garment have stood the test time. His in addition to regular old fish kills the gar has specialized swim bladder that acts like a long this specialized swim bladder allows the guard sip air from the surface because of this the gar can inhabit low oxygen water other fish can't I just flipped a few flies at another guard species the spotted gar down in Texas few weeks ago on the Lionel river really need fish. You should definitely check them out. Light public lands as I was saying Nevada as good chunk of them. But soon the sheep ranch Ma. Mountains that is which you can see from the airplane window when you're landing in Vegas may soon be closed off to the public. Ouch right now. The US military's asking for an additional two hundred and twenty five thousand acres of the mountain range for bombing practice. That's the size of two thousand two hundred fifty Disneyland's. If you include the new Star Wars expansion there are few problems with this one being that these mountains happen to be some the best desert Bighorn sheep habitat in the world once upon a time, it's estimated that we had around two million, Bighorn sheep. That's both Rocky Mountain and desert bighorns, thanks to unregulated market, hunting habitat loss and disease the ladder, which remains the primary threat to sheet that number was whittled down to roughly fifteen thousand by nineteen hundred now we're back up to around seventy thousand sure not perfect, but we're out of the big horn dark ages and getting there any sheep that still on the mountain is there because we fought for it. That's certainly true. The sheep range bighorns. For decades conservation organizations such as well chief foundation have worked their asses off to conserve the sheep range and at six hundred desert Bighorn habitat, improvements, water improvements and plenty of other hot sweaty work. We're talking hundreds of regular folks, donating time and money on behalf of wildlife. Let's not piss that away. Get off your butts and act now, call your elected officials if you care about desert bighorns and public access of wild places I understand the needs of national defense. Let's play the long game here. What's wild should stay wild. We're not gonna run out of degraded landscapes, so don't worry about that and the war on wild sheet. Now, we're going to talk about things that should be and things that shouldn't be up near a northern border with Canada on lake superior is IOL Royal National Park. I o Royal is a remote island chain in the northwest corner of the lake a car free, Michigan wilderness, where at least now it is moose and wolves room somewhat mysteriously. I showed up on the island in the early nineteen hundreds either they walked across the is to get there or someone brought them out there and cut them. Loose wolves showed up in nineteen forty eight. Having crossed an ice bridge between mainland Antero and the island things have been up and down since then the wolf population got his highest fifty but reasonably dropped to just two inbred as all get out. Meanwhile, moose are kicking at at a current estimated population of around fifteen hundred the National Park Service recently released four gray wolves to help the wolf population out, and they're preparing to deliver twenty or thirty more over the next five years at a cost of two million dollars. You might wonder why we'd be flying animals back and forth to a national park parks. You're supposed to be places where nature is allowed to run course. Unimpeded by man. Granted it sounds a little bit like zookeeping. Well in this case it has to do with ice cold weather, ice bridges. Between the mainland our oil. We're more common in past decades which allowed some sporadic coming and going of critters but times of changed now it seldom freezes good enough from nineteen ninety eight until two thousand eleven a solid ice bridge formed only once in two thousand eight from two thousand thirteen to two thousand seventeen I all Royal was connected to the mainland only twice and in those instances only for a few days somewhat. Ironically, one of the wolves that was flown out. Save the wolves that can't get replenished due to a lack of ice promptly left the island on you guessed it and is bridge. It's real complicated out there on our oil. You wanna know something? That's also pretty interesting up until the twenties and thirties island was home to links and caribou both of which banished without any restocking efforts from us. Humans are we smarter now we're just different onto Florida. According to a two thousand four study twenty six percent of. All mammals birds, reptiles amphibians, and fish and southern Florida are non native we're talking Guana 's snakeheads to Laputa parakeets and over a hundred and fifty other species, Florida, even has feral monkeys climate around. It's the non indigenous species capital of the United States all add that Florida means land flowers Spanish. So that's nice returning to nominate of's. They've got the Burmese python. Living down there. The biggest has been recorded over twenty three feet in length and two hundred pounds in their native range of south East Asia. They didn't think they could get that big in Florida at least until now in big cypress, national, preserve researchers captured a seventeen foot female python that weighed over a hundred and forty pounds and health seventy three eggs. They caught it using the Judas method in the bible Judas betrays Jesus in Florida Judas was a male python with the tracking device that they released. So he could go out and do what male pythons want to do which is fine. Females. Give them some time. Tracking back down see who he's hanging with in. This case it was one hundred forty pound girlfriend confirming beyond out that Florida can grow big snake. Big snakes can only get big by eating wealth. According to studies by the US Geological Survey in Everglades national park. There's been a ninety nine point three percent decrease in raccoon observation and ninety eight point nine percent decrease in possum observations and an eighty seven and a half percent decrease in Bob cat ops or Beijing's. The most recent surveys have shown that Marsh rabbits, cotton tail rabbits and foxes have quote, effectively disappeared, of course, non-natives caused us more than just native wildlife. According to the nature conservancy invasive species cost the United States about one hundred billion dollars per year over west Florida few states, you've got Texas send they're all proud and beautiful rattlesnakes oil rigs sh. Shitloads tigers. If you don't know what I'm talking about. I mentioned Tigers. You should have listened to last week's episode of this show also poachers doing it for the Graham Instagram that is deeds done for the Graham might lead a poacher time behind bars. Recently, the Texas operation game wildlife crime stoppers hotline started buzzing about an illegally taken wild Turkey. Perpetrators spotted the bird roll the windows down squeezed off shale Blau and ended the life of the spring Turk. Apparently, this wizard of multitasking caught it all on video and loaded up for his followers common sense would dictate that you first off should not roll down the window of your hunting rig to blast Turkey or any animal for that matter in most it's shooting for the roadway in any fashion is illegal. Secondly, don't post your legal activity that Instagram and share with the world. I appreciate the easy job. You're making for the game wardens, but I don't want to be associated with you as part of the hunting community more from Texas. Remember that opening bid about cop relates? Here's why brought that up in the late nineteen sixties archaeologists collected over thousand samples of human produced cop relates at Caen ho shelter in south west, Texas. Just recently. These samples were re examined by an archaeological team from Texas. Am in one of the samples they found a small rodent apparently eaten whole which for people living around kane'ohe shelter was not abnormal life in the desert has its challenges and another sample. The team did get a spreads a surprise in the form of what appeared to be a whole rattlesnakes including snakes hide head and one centimeter long fact, according to the authors of the report, quote, we propose that a likely explication for the ingestion an entire snake is that the individual did so for a distinctly ceremonial or ritual Listrik purpose, and quote, you know, there's a joke in the archaeological community something you've dug up doesn't make sense call it ritual Listrik or ceremonial and move on thing is I can think of few things I've ingested that were certainly not ceremonial or ritual Listrik though that still make it tough for anyone to propose. A likely explication for my behavior. From our technology desk. Engineers at Cornell lab of ornithology have created at the request of a professor in the department of evolution and college at the university of California Davis, a sage grouse fem by request for these lovely robotic ladies of the sage was inspired by the desire to understand sage grouse reading habits, specifically how manmade disturbances affect breeding efforts on and around lex which are communal breeding areas where male sage grouse compete for females through elaborate sexual displays scientists remotely drive. These robotic bird renditions, which sport next journal frame that's wrapped with female, sage grouse, skin and feathers and further fitted with all train wheels. The mechanize lovebirds are fitted with camera to capture male behavior up close and personal sometimes too close stranding males have repeatedly mounted and attempted to breed these female robots then again, they've also been reported to mount. And old dried up Kalpana tough times for sage grouse love making. And lastly, a word from that wonderful, Texas musician I mentioned earlier Mike appea- Hinson, again, don't confuse him with Michael Ray. And some the guy who neglected his pet fish? Kohl's. Special.

I'm going to touch on fish birds poachers snakes ticks, getting drunk and general outdoors, goings on, but we four we get into the news from big wide world, burst. I'm going to tell you about my world. As it turns out, I'm still recovering from my Turkey on in the spring, green hills outside of Nashville Tennessee woke up the other morning with the Tennessee tech hitchhiker, if you will embedded in my armpit miss was troubling for a number of reasons. One is being in your mid thirties, at just doesn't feel great question, your ability to clean yourself.

Not only bringing this up because I am big on honesty and quite sincerely when a man finds it disease-carrying parasite, and what the old timers would call your soft parts. It's a real sinking feeling ticks attach themselves to hosts by questing, which is climbing to a vantage point now allow them to either grab or drop onto an animal as they pass by ticks, can carry a number of diseases, most notable being Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, which are both bacterial infections that are introduced to humans through contact with the offending tick ticks need to be attached for twenty four hours or longer in order to transmit.

For instance, there's been an over three X increase in confirmed limes cases since nineteen Ninety-seven now onto fish for those of you waiting on the Minnesota white fish record to be broken. It's been a long time. Coming quick facts about the lake wait, say she is it is the most commercially valuable freshwater fish and canned here in the states, sometimes regarded as a trash fish, but Europeans are mad about the row commercial white fishermen who harvest fish trip with trap nets can make as much or more from exporting, caviar, as they do selling, fillets, any house. The Minnesota whitefish record from nineteen ninety nine has been busted by first time ice angered his thirteen pound nine point one ounce whitefish came in and almost thirty inches in length, and twenty two inches and Gert in Montana. We'd call that a big Whitey. While the angler was nude ice fishing. He's an old hand at noodling for Flathead catfish, noodling, or tickling is when you catch a Flathead by inserting hand in their mouth, and allow them to bite down on your hand when the cat bites you up from the water. The catfish noodling record is eighty five pounds two ounces. The all time Flathead record for regular fishing with your standard old route and real setup is over one hundred and twenty three pounds that fish was from Kansas. If you think pulling fish through the ice or ground them by the mouth sounds cruel, or if you think who cares, it's just a fish, take a look at the case of Michael Ray Hinson, not to be confused with the wonderful Texas musician, Mike p Hinson, Michael Ray Hinson was charged with one count of abandonment of an animal, and three counts of misdemeanor cruelty to animals Anson was a victim from his home in New, Hanover county, North Carolina and left behind neglect. Did six inch Oscar fish authorities found the Oscar in deplorable conditions with parasitic. Whole had disease. Yes. Hole in the head disease. Apparently in common problem, encountered by aquarium, and who's ius good thing for Hanson New Hanover county district attorney Ben David determined that animal. Cruelty statutes don't apply to fish as the DA stated. We take a very dim view of anyone who would abuse any creature greater small think about that. The next time you see a bunch of goldfish, and plastic bags at the fair or heaven forbid in the bottom of your fishing bucket. Speaking of protections for fish, check this one out, it probably goes without saying that fish in the desert or rare. But would you guess that death valley is home, the rarest known fish on earth? The devils hole located not all that, far from Las Vegas, part of the metals complex, which is in turn part of the death valley, national park complex is comprised of seeps and springs. Bring fossil water, which is water that seeped into the aquifer millennia go to the surface. Well, it could be more tempting than water in the desert. Right. Right. Devils hole is a seriously protected place, ten foot fences, highly controlled highly monitored in two thousand sixteen and small group of board drunk and armed desert welders decided for reasons, unknown to go for a swim. The boys get through the fans. And in short order we've gotten illegal skinny dippers and devils hole. Skinny dippers, a convicted felon in possession of shocking during swim. He manages to step onto the small shelf of rock that is that percenter of life at devil's hole. When the National Park Service crews made aware of this violation. They show up to investigate as it turns out, it looks as though the disturbance of the pool in devils hole resulted in the death of a rare pup fish when I say, rare, I mean, the devil's hole pup fish is one of the rarest fish on the planet is tiny shimmery blue fish is only found there in the waters of devils hole. The devils hole up fish has been on the endangered species list since the list was created while we don't know for absolute certain at this Bello killed the pup fish circumstantial evidence pointing very decidedly in that direction. So what's the punishment? Learn anything here. Let it be this. Don't go drinking and messing with the Endangered Species Act are skinny Dipper was finally, sentenced recently got nine months and the client for the violation. For months for the trespassing and destruction of property, and has to pay fourteen thousand in restitution to the National Park Service and to top, it all off the Queen, Mother of all punishments pon release the devils hole skinny Dipper will be forbidden to enter federal public lands for the rest of his life. And this is where I start to feel bad for Dipper this guy and his buddies made really bad decisions deplorable when you think about wiping species off the face of the earth for the sake drunken dumb assery things. They'll likely regret for the rest of their lives and should mind you, but imagine you live in Nevada. And you've been banned for life from eighty four point nine percent of your home state. Eighty four point nine is the percentage of federally managed to land in Nevada. You've basically been sentenced to live in Las Vegas, and that sounds cruel and unusual to me and the spirit of reform I'd rather see the dip percents to cleaning up the desert as opposed to being banned from let's go from little blue fish to the big tooth. The alligator, gar a couple of guys on brazos river landed a seven foot seven inch alligator gar, weighing in a hundred ninety eight pounds, the head alone, way twenty five now this sounds like a beast, but the world record game out of Texas and went two hundred and seventy nine pounds, these creatures date back to the Cretaceous period. Meaning alligator gar have been swimming for at least sixty six million years if you watched the movie Jurassic world, the dinosaur, the jumps out of the water and eats, the T Rex hybrid, at the end, that's Moses sore, the Moser, and the Gars, swam at the same time, obviously, the gar is still around and the Moses or ISM. And that's how we get the term living fossil some of our favorite living, fossils, horseshoe, crabs snapping turtles possums and the tastiest of all the American pronghorns antelope. Here's a few more fun facts about the gar scales stretch are called allows Moyed scales scales, that don't gamble it scales. Gar- have Gannett scales, making can hack series bite without affect one reason. The garment stood the test time is, in addition to regular old fish gills. The gar has a specialized swim bladder that acts like along this specialized swim bladder allows the guard a sip air from the surface because of this, the gar can inhabit low oxygen water. Other fish can I just flipped a few flies at another guard species spotted gar down in Texas few weeks ago? On the Lionel river really need fish. You should definitely check them up like public lands as I was saying, Nevada has a good chunk of them. But soon the sheep range Ma. Mountains. That is which you can see from the airplane window when you're landing in Vegas may soon be closed off to the public. Ouch. Right now, the US military is asking for an additional two hundred and twenty five thousand acres of the mountain range for bombing breakfast. That's the size of two thousand two hundred and fifty Disneyland's. If you include the new Star Wars expansion, their few problems with this one being that these mountains happen to be some of the best desert Bighorn sheep habitat in the world once upon a time, it's estimated that we had around two million big orange sheet. That's both Rocky Mountain amd desert bighorns, thanks to unregulated market hunting habitat loss and disease the ladder, which remains the primary threat to sheep that number was whittled down to roughly fifteen thousand by one thousand nine hundred now we're back up to around seventy thousand sure not perfect. But we're out of the big orange dark ages and getting there, any sheep that still on. The mountain is there because we thought for it. That's certainly true. The sheep range bighorns. For decades conservation organizations, such as wild cheap foundation have worked, their asses off to conserve the sheep range and at six hundred desert Bighorn habitat improvements water improvements. And plenty of other hot sweaty work. We're talking hundreds of regular, folks, donating time and money on behalf of wildlife. Let's not piss that away. Get off your butts and act now. Call your elected officials if you care about desert bighorns and public access of wild places. I understand the needs of national defense. Let's play the long game here. What's wild should stay wild or not gonna run out of degraded landscapes? So don't worry about that. And the war on wild cheat. Now we're going to talk about things that should be and things that shouldn't be up near a northern border with Canada on lake superior is IOL, Royal National Park. I o Royal is a remote island chain in the northwest corner of the lake a car free Michigan wilderness, where at least nowadays, moose and wolves room somewhat mysteriously. I showed up on the island in the early nineteen hundreds either they walked across the is to get there. Or someone brought them out there and cut them. Loose wolves showed up in nineteen forty eight having crossed an ice bridge between mainland Ontario and the island things have been up and down since then the wolf population got his highest fifty reasonably dropped to just too inbred as all get out. Meanwhile moose are kicking at current estimated population of around, fifteen hundred the National Park Service recently released, four, gray wolves to help the wolf population now and they're preparing to deliver twenty or thirty more over the next five years at a cost of two million dollars. You might wonder why we'd be flying animals back and forth to a national park parks or supposed to be places where nature is allowed to run. Course unimpeded by man granted it sounds a little bit like zookeeping. Well in this case, it has to do with ice and cold weather ice, bridges. Between the mainland. Our Royal we're more common in past decades, which allowed some sporadic coming and going of critters, but times have changed now. It seldom freezes good enough for nineteen ninety eight until two thousand eleven a solid ice bridge formed only once in two thousand eight from two thousand thirteen to two thousand seventeen I'll Royal was connected to the mainland, only twice and in those instances, only for a few days somewhat. Ironically, one of the wolves that was flown out save the wolves that can't get replenished due to a lack of ice promptly left the island on. You guessed it an ice bridge. It's real complicated out there on our oil, you wanna know something that's also pretty interesting up until the twenties. And thirties island was home to links and caribou, both of which banished without any restocking efforts from us humans are we smarter now or just different onto Florida, according to a two thousand four study twenty six percent of. All mammals birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish in southern Florida are non native. We're talking Guana 's snakeheads to lappy a parakeet and over one hundred and fifty other species, Florida, even has feral monkeys climbing around. It's the non indigenous species capital of the United States, all add that Florida means land of flowers in Spanish, so that's nice returning to non natives. They've got the Burmese python living down there. The biggest has been recorded over twenty three feet in length and two hundred pounds in their native range of southeast Asia. They didn't think they could get that big in Florida, at least until now in big cypress, national preserve researchers captured a seventeen foot female python that weighed over one hundred and forty pounds and held seventy three eggs they caught it using the Judas method in the bible, Judas betrays Jesus in Florida Judas was a male python with the tracking device that they released so he could go out and do what male pythons want to do, which is fine. Females. Give him some time. Track him back down. See who he's hanging with. In this case, it was one hundred forty pound girlfriend confirming beyond doubt that Florida can grow. Big snake big, snakes can only get big by eating well, according to studies by the US Geological Survey in Everglades national park, there's been a ninety nine point three percent decrease in raccoon, observation a ninety eight point nine percent decrease in a possum observations, and an eighty seven and a half percent decrease in Bob cat observations. The most recent surveys have shown that Marsh rabbits cotton tail rabbits, and foxes have quote, effectively, disappeared, of course, non natives caused us more than just native wildlife. According to the nature conservancy, invasive species, cost, the United States about one hundred billion dollars per year, over west of Florida few states. You've got Texas sitting there all, proud, and beautiful rattlesnakes oil rigs sh. Setlow tigers. If you don't know what I'm talking about. I mentioned daggers you should have listened to last week's episode of this show. Also poachers doing it for the Graham Instagram that is deeds done for the Graham might lead a poacher to time behind bars. Recently, the Texas operation game thief. Wildlife crime stoppers hotline started buzzing about illegally taken wild Turkey. Perpetrators spotted the bird roll the windows down squeezed off a shell blouse and ended the life of the spring Turk, apparently this wizard of multitasking caught it all on video and loaded up for his followers, common sense, would dictate that you first off should not roll down the window of your hunting rig to blast a Turkey or any animal for that matter in most states shooting for the roadway in any fashion is illegal, Secondly, don't post your legal activity to Instagram and share with the world. I appreciate the easy job you are making for the game wardens, but I don't want to be associated with you, as part of the hunting community. More from Texas. Remember that opening bid about copper lights? Here's why I brought that up in the late nineteen sixties archaeologists collected over a thousand samples of human produced copper lights at kane'ohe shelter in south west Texas, just recently. These samples were re examined by an archaeological team from Texas. Am in one of the samples they found a small rodent apparently whole, which for people living around Kaneko shelter was not abnormal. Live in the desert has its challenges in another sample. The team did get a surprise surprise in the form of what appeared to be a whole rattlesnake including snakes hide head and a one centimeter long fat, according to the authors of the report, quote, we propose that a likely explanation for the ingestion of an entire snake is that the individual did, so for a distinctly ceremonial or ritual, Listrik purpose, and quote, you know, there's a joke in the archaeological community is something you've dug up doesn't make sense. Call it ritual, Listrik or ceremonial and move on thing is I can think of a few things I've ingested that were certainly not ceremonial or ritual, Listrik, though, that still make it tough for anyone to propose. A likely explanation for my baby from our technology desk. Engineers at Cornell lab of ornithology have created at the request of a professor in the department of evolution and ecology at the university of California Davis. A sage grouse fem by the request for these lovely robotic ladies of the sage was inspired by the desire to understand sage grouse breeding habits specifically, how manmade disturbances affect breeding efforts on and around lex, which are communal breeding areas where male sage grouse compete for females through elaborate sexual displays scientists remotely drive these robotic bird renditions, which sport next rental frame, that's wrapped with female sage grouse, skin and feathers and further fitted with all train wheels the mechanize lovebirds, fitted with camera to capture male behavior up close and personal, sometimes too close.

Not Russia that interfered in our last election. Shift said the evidence.

The Japanese raise a tree Sabban Cy tree, the bonds trae takes years and years to call avait and about it is an art. They're absolutely beautiful. The bonds. Tree is anywhere from twelve to twenty twenty two inches tall, it can be anyone of a number of species of trees, what they do is when the little tree pokes. Head above us. All they extracted. They tau some of the feeder routes and tap roots and they carefully shape it and they watch it grow as I say it gets eighteen twenty twenty two inches tall. Now, there's a tree out in California called the general Sherman. The general Sherman is nearly three hundred feet tall is wide enough that you could literally drive to automobiles through it side by side, engineers have estimated that if they were to cut it down and sell it up into lumber that they could build thirty five five room houses, now the interesting thing is, is the bonds, add tree, and the general Sherman. At one time, we're approximately the same size each way, less than one three thousands of an ounce when they were seeds, but the bonsai tree had his growth, stymied, and stunned the general. Airman fell into the rich soul of California. It was nourished by the richness of the solve by the sunshine and by the rain and as a result, it grew to forest giant now, neither the bonds, add trae now, the general Sherman had a choice, but you have got a choice you can grow. We'll talk of course. These questions post are short and simple because it's Facebook, and if they're not short and simple, you don't get a whole lot of response. But, you know, the concept was rating your personal performance. Of course, the best way to do that is looking at Ziglar wheel of life. And I know that you could find that thing online, if you search Ziglar wheel of life, and find it even where it's got kind of the rating system, and you can rate yourself there and come out with a score. And that's a concept that we're talking about here, and people related to various areas that they felt like I'm weak here. I'm strong here. But looking at that I looked at it and I went down. And I thought, gosh here I'm doing ten. Here's a seven years, a six, and I said, I honestly I probably about a seven right now all throw at you. Tell us CEO's Ziegler how you rate. Wow. That's a good one. You know, an check back on this on a regular basis because every time you teach it, you've got to be like, where am I going to ask? Right now. I'm feeling pretty good. I'm eight plus sweet. And a lot of that has to do that. I'll be honest. I got an elliptical. And I've been doing that. It for two and a half months at charts everything. And then I bought one of those scales does body mass index and fat percentage. And, and it's kinda cool track and trends, and it's weird, you know, but when you get diligent, one thing, it just kind of leaks over to everything else. Yes, exit. Good. And then if you kind of go lax on something guess what else happens it leaks over everything else, and drags down? So, you know, not tens for sure, of course, I have high standards on that, but feeling pretty good. I love that you said that because I do find that we have somebody this in coaching, and personal development, somebody who's trying to get traction and trying to progress, sometimes just finding an area, whatever the area is where they can progress helps as a catalyst for everything. I've seen people that are wanting to start a business, and it was finally getting their act together, and in a little bit and doing a five K and just that achievement helped them to go. I can't achieve something and they went and started. Business, and that was a catalyst. I love that aspect of it. Tom. That's true. Well, so here I'll it's also running down through some Brian Lynch. He says a six to seven. I was at a higher rate a few years ago when I was part of a coaching or mastermind group. Okay. Just as we talked about one area leaking over into another and help in all those areas, I would say as an ingredient having I don't know how you want to how do you want to categorize accountability or kindred spirits is we know that is massive as overdoing this anything solo, you know, this is I mean, bottomline simple sacred. Find somebody who's already been where you wanna go and make a commitment to them. And it can be a mentor or coaching or a mastermind doesn't matter. You're going to get results that way. Because there's something about the human spirit where we see people going faster than us. It gives us encouragement. And then we. Gotta check the boxes and report back man. That's when the rubber hits the road. That's that's good. Okay. So you said it right there. Check the box of Susie Bradley's next year. I know Suzy she's amazing. She says I'd say, I'm a five or six right now. I'm gonna slump with slaying. My goals, and feel frustrated how I'm not as focused as usual. So now I'm literally starting to use my planner and setting attainable daily action steps filling those boxes, again, of course, we're going to shamelessly talk about the Ziglar performance planner. But whatever you're using if you're using a notepad and paper, if you're using your Google count, or whatever, but something where you have to do that. I'm currently going through this met pro metabolic their personal training program, and I have to go every day and say, what I ate here. What a eight here what my exercise is knowing I have to do that is great talk about accountability, and I am slain in that area nutrition and exercise right now. I'm ten. Over the past two months, because I have somebody who's watching. Here's a tale. When you get in a slum, whatever your big goal dream passion is whatever the big thing is what you need to do is break it down into bite sized chunks. And then honor the process, let's just say, you know, it's a big giant gold, that's going to take a year in your kind of in a slump. It's kind of so big. You don't even know how to approach, it break, it down into a one quarter a three month and then, and then a one month and then a weekly and then just auto the process. Check the boxes every week on what you got accomplish that week. That is the greatest way to get out of a slump in this area athletes will do the same thing. You know, they don't perform. They don't hit. They don't you know they lose time on the track. Whatever it is. They go in and they, they take reading and windows at my peak, and one of my doing now, and then they do the fundamentals all over again, and that will get you out of the, the, the. Slum chick Chick-fil-A. They hire people based on track record of success. So Chick-fil-A franchisees, people who wanna come in and own a store. They really investigate. Do you have a track record of success while if we'd been around the block long enough, all of us have a track record of success for certain period of time in something, let's go back and look at that analyze what we did in get out of the slum by breaking down? Hey, I can do this day. Here's my goal for the week, whom I hit it. That is great. Yeah. I would say one of the biggest benefits to my personal progress and success overall was my athletics Vienna. Pro cyclist in that one area. Gives me context and fuel to perform in so many others. And we see that all the time. All right. This is like the personal executive coaching session with Tom throw this one. This one's good. You're ready Matt Horne here. He says it depends on which area of life. I'm continually working at self talk and appreciation of my day job, to continue to try and work diligent diligently, which I don't enjoy as it doesn't bring fulfillment. So I'd say a five or six there, however, I'm studying to change in my career, which is in line with my skills and values, which is so motivating and inspiring and for that I am at nine. This includes my personal development as well. Then there's health say, I'm an eight even though I'm injured and can't play basketball at the moment. That's my first love, he says my family probably a seven and my thoughts on what could help me most right now. Now is changing my day job to something that is in alignment with what I value and can contribute to something bigger than me. I'm trying to figure out what I can do to achieve this as we speak. He says, I'm in in sales, and as an as an excellent Beatty account manager, what does that business development manager? I think a need identify companies that meet my criteria from there, I will not look for vacant jobs, rather call and apply. For a new job creation with that business and show them where they could gain value from somebody like me. Ideally, I'd be looking for four days per week position to free me up to work on my studies inside business of coaching in summary. I'm struggling to perform at my day job due to the disconnect in my values. My perception of my company's direction and the lack of ability to truly influence other people's lives, positively. That was a great overview. He wins the submission award. Jesse knows all right? Yeah. So there's a there's a sense of urgency, Matt, if, if the values that you aspire believe in, if you're the place where you're working is contradicting that in other words, you're a person of high integrity, and you don't feel like they're doing business with integrity than integrity is going to make you make a decision to move quicker than maybe what. If it's other things like their priorities are just off, or you really love serving here, and they're serving over there. And so it's, it's not that they're wrong, and you're right or vice versa. It's just it's not a fit, then I like your plan of actively seeking out what it is that you're going to do. I think the most important thing is to not a to do nothing to either advocate, or or just say, okay, I'm going to settle for this. You gotta get energized on your y when you're on your wise, really driving you, those doors on the other side will open up. What's the clarity of the why? Well, beauty. Hey, on that interesting. You say that because I had one here, I thought was interesting. Tony Chung says I'm sitting pretty at zero right now. Kevin, I'm taking a much needed break, and I thought that was interesting because I, sometimes people there is there is a season of cycles of saying I need to rest. I need that Sabbath. That's sabbatical. And in that I would say, Tony, maybe you're not at zero. Maybe you're to ten right now. If you feel confident, and joyful, and stopping and resting, and I know that, that's one for me, Tom, that sometimes I struggle with always pressing pressing, pressing striving striving striving. And sometimes I need to go on that beach trip and sit on the beach and do nothing for a while. But I would say that is doing nothing sometimes if it's restorative is very much doing something, what do you think? Yeah. You know, it's funny, I'll give you know, on the personal spoke which in the book choose to win. I talk about. It's about creating energy. So if you're taking a break to create energy to go for the next big Kush, man, that's you gotta ten out of ten on that. But you look at other ones like physical, man, we should never go to zero and physical. 'cause that's sure that's just so hopefully donate, you've got X. I mean, hopefully you're just looking at it as far as you know, production or performance in a work environment or something like that. But man, this should be the time to double down, or your physicals attend your personal attending relationships or attend your family's Ted. And you're just fueling the battery. So, yeah. More context would be good. But sure center, I. Our this, this saying of this guy seasons guy on the beach, and the guys on the beach in a hammock just watching the sunset fishing. And the guy says, you know, he says, you know, if you if you went to work and got a job, you know, someday you can do this all the time. And the guy goes, well, this is my job. So he's catching fish to provide his wife. Yeah. In, in so I like that. And one more thing. Or maybe this is back to Matt's forgot to mention this Matt do a journal. While you're in this process, because if you're going into coaching you're going to deal with a lot of people who were go right through the same thing. Yeah. Absolutely. Well, here's gosh, a couple, I'll just run through Josh helmed. I'd say a strong seven my performance always goes up in seasons. When I have strong accountability from, like minded mentors, coaches are friends. We hit that already on one. It's such a strong point Allen province. He says, I would say a six and be more time efficient and accountable to the time blocks that I have put in place would help and then manual floor as he says, I'd say, I'm an eight I lack on sticking to my daily routines when I did them regularly. I felt like I was on fire with Tom, you mentioned your book choose to win. And of course that famous saying of the fastest way to success is you finished it to replace bad habits with good habits. So when we're talking about routine that comes over that was a consistent thread in the posts here of gotten out of the habit of my daily routines. And I just the more we do these shows Tom where people I interview. I don't know if there's anything that stands out more to me than that is just having that daily routine that you stick to as much as you can and not falling off of that. I hear so often people say, I just I fell off the wagon, I stopped doing that. And that there to some degree kinda like you say in that there's some areas that we don't want to get get two zero. I think that daily structure even if the eighty twenty rule I stick to it eighty percent of the time. And in on those days, I do eighty percent of it, even if it's that consistency, consistency consisting will absolutely annihilate intensity. I have a friend. His name is Aaron all on row in east part of the Texas, Texas FFA foundation board. In. He says this you know, dad said you were born to win in Aaron. I don't know if he made this upper he's quoting somebody, he said, you know, we're not born winners, and we're not born losers. But we're all born choosers and, you know, I agree. I do think that were born to win that we've got every opportunity to win, but it's choice in gosh. She know what a habit is just the same good choice made over and over again. That's one good habit. Is I haven't found anything in this is practical K, this isn't theoretical or philosophical? I'm just saying, practical haven't found anything more practical than setting aside that I thirty minutes at least of the day to just you happen to the day of the day happened. See does something to the rest of the day when you do that quiet time putting the right stuff in organizing planning doing your one thing man. Noser just powerful. Concepts. And if we can do that every day, if that's the habit that we never break it just sets us up. Well we're gonna have before long. I don't know. In the schedule where it's gonna place in relation to this show, but a finally be talking to how Elrod he's the miracle morning guy. And it feels pretty irrefutable on that morning time. And can you do some good habits in the middle of the at the end of the day? Sure. But the chances of you not doing them something coming up life happening are very high. And then the morning is what's so much sets the tone that it's that it's so powerful. But man, I just want to give grace to how hard that is for so many people in the lifestyles, we have today in the work schedule's, whether it's nine to five or eight to six or seven to whatever or the midnight shift, and then school schedules, that dictate so many people's lives, if you've got kids and those start early seems like it's earlier all the time, and it is flat out difficult. I. Through a long season of really struggling with that because I've got older kids now. And they're the ones that, you know, they want stay up late and have deep conversations and have fun. And you can't do it all. I can't do that NBA up with my little kids and get up early. Enough something has to give and it comes into that prioritizing, and sometimes I have to give up good things sometimes they're even better than good. But for the really great, I just have to either so many nights Tom where I think about your testimony of your dad nine thirty hits. And he says, well, kids what was his line. I don't know about you, but I'm going to bed. I did it. I did it last night at about nine thirty when they're wanting to watch oh, we got to watch the other show. Because see what happens. I said, guys, I'm out I'm out because it's precious to me to wake up when I do which is going to be five thirty or six and have my time it makes me better for them as well.

So go again, met pro dot CO slash Ziglar. With on here. Some read through three real quick. Because these are these folks need some inspiration, Tom Deo. He says, I'm at about a three and debating if I want to try or just say the heck with it. I hope miracle happens I have faith that it could. But I'm not placing any bets on it. It's all he offered. Here's another one Thomas Alinsky. I met a three swift kick in the rear or smack in the head. We'd get me to realize that I need to write stuff down because I know I can do this cat Zena. She says a three and a half might PTSD was triggered recently and back to the basics and that my focus is shifted to me, and being okay, I'll be back shortly. That was three. I pulled out of some others as well. Then obviously just saying they're not doing well right now. Speak to that. It happens to all of this life does happen. And I want you I do want you to speak at it. You're Tom Ziegler? Right. You're never supposed to have a down day. Right. Yeah. Oh man. And you know what's weird is a lot of times the down days come right, when it should be the best way. Let's even say let's go further. Do you ever had it down season, Tom or it's more than a day? Oh, I've got probably a down year. Okay. Yeah. Me too of a, you know, let's face it, you get rocked you get hit, you get hit, you get hit. And then if you're a leader, if you're an example, if you're encouraging others, you, it's very, very trying and very, very delicate on who you share with. Right. I remember I was talking to a business leader and he suddenly had to throw suddenly had to close his company, and he left a lot of people hanging. And some of them wrote to me because I knew the whole situation and they said, how could he could he encourage the whole time and yet do this without giving us any warning, well, his problem was is he had a buyer for the company who looked like they were going to buy it out and preserve all the jobs that he had? But the only way you could keep that intact was he could he had let everybody know things are good. Things are looking good. We got things on the which. Is all true. He couldn't share with them. Hey, if this deal doesn't happen, a might have to shut the company down. Because then enough people would've left that he couldn't have done the whole thing. And so a lot of times as leaders, people we get into those difficult situations where we've got to leave from the front with optimism with hope with this is what's going to happen. We speak the truth in the fans and on the inside, we're getting torn up because we're you know, we're having to make adjustments and this thing didn't turn out like we wanted to. So man, I get it. And then I don't have a TST, but I know I've got so many friends who had that. And so kind of Xena when you, when you say that my goodness, it's, it's okay technology got that. And you gotta go take care of yourself, right? I mean, we have a lot of people who we know through the show to deal with it on regular basis. And that's perfectly good. That's what you're supposed to. In. But to deny it to deny something like that is not as it's not gonna get you to where you wanna go as fast as you need to get there, and who and Thomas three. Right. The stuff down man, I'm with you. And for Thomas. I'm saying Thomas. I'm saying this tongue in cheek if you need help Ryan to down on your band, Sears jitters, the deal, I'll do this any listener. Okay. I do this with weight loss. I do this with anything. Just send me a check for ten thousand dollars. And then every day text me that, you've, you know, just take a picture of your planner if you written plan of action every single day any if you do that for sixty days in a row, I'll send you your money back. And if you don't get to keep the money, I've never had this opportunity fail. It's amazing. When people have a real concrete loss that's about to happen now. They stick to it. So I was I'm saying that tongue in cheek. But that's kind of the mindset you've gotta have. It's costing you that kind of money, not to follow through on that. That's, that's great any I was gonna say, these folks, I would encourage them to find. A lifeline, you don't have to fix everything today. But find a lifeline something's going to keep your hope up there. And, you know, I do want to speak to them, though, that there's a for those of you who are faith based, and believe in a God. There is also an opposite force at work, that wants to keep you down. And I find so often when I'm in that place or other people are that they're often lies that we are accepting. There are bad Trues, we accepted, and we were leading our self image be derailed and just to be aware of that fight you. It's not usually an easy snap to go. Oh, now I'm aware of that, and snap it in to fix it. It may take awhile, but at least to know that, that you are not your don't believe everything you think how's that. And that there are there are some forces that don't want you to be. Well, I know it's a high positively perspective to say, hey, the universe and the universe or God. You'd pay down your. Is conspiring to, to make everything great for you. I don't always feel that Tom. Sometimes I feel the opposite in and I'm left to myself, and I'm left to hold on as a lifeline. Those core truth that I believe, to help me dig my way out. Jennifer here. She says, I fluctuate between two and nine this month, it's a nine last month to, I'd rather have highs and lows in a steady five. I'm a believer and soaring with your strength. So when I'm aligned with the right job, the right fitness plan, the right relationship. I soar when one of those is off. It knocks everything off for me. I also don't believe tennis possible this side of heaven, because I never perfectly spiritual. So I'll never have a ten will couple interesting points there. Would you rather go from two to nine or be at a steady five course because we also think I'd, I'd like to be a ten all the time or nine or an eight but play, it's interesting because Tom is when I read that I thought I understand that. I think I probably am somewhat cyclicals that mean that you're schizophrenic or chaotic, I don't know with life things do happen with. Hey, how about you? I asked you about your yourself. How about your dad? How? About Mr. zig, Ziglar himself. You saw him up close and personal. Did he stay at a ten all day every day all the time? You know in different areas of life. Nobody does. It's impossible. You know, he was always working on his way. I don't know the Ziglar jeans man. We, we retain ice cream. So, you know it's hard, right. It's hard. You travel a lot and life gets in the way. And but here's what I would say. Jennifer is I like I like what saying that I call base camp. And so what I do is I try to elevate my base camp every year. So I try to look at every every my life, and I'm always working on, and I might be in a five or seven or nine or, you know, maybe a ten for day in one area because I maxed out in something. But what I wanna do is look at where I am today versus a year ago and say, hey, you know what my six today in would have been an eight last year because my foundations more stable, I have more breadth more depth in that area in so in plus the more, we know the more we can do right in the more. We know the more we know there's more we gotta learn and the more we know there's more connections that have yet to be made that we need to bake. And so that's why you know, it's like. Could an eight year old soccer player be a ten in comparison to all the eight year olds but one compare and to you know European top league. Absolutely. But the point is, is we're, we're in a season. When seeing, hey, I'm going to be everything I can be right now. And, and Tom day. Oh, this is this is how for you what I would say is you look at the areas of your life, you always have a choice in every area in, it's always right to make the right choice and for your health, the right choice might be as simple as and I'm gonna make sure I get in a glasses of water day. I'm gonna stay hydrate. It I'm going to get enough sleep. You know, just whatever is. And so, you know, we may feel like cash, you know, everything's come against us. We've got a big setback or dealing with these issues, but we can still choose to sit and watch TV. Or we can choose to take a walk. We can, you know, we can choose to play the negative tapes in our mind. Or we can choose to go to the Ziglar show and just get it downloaded good positive stuff and chatting by the way for our listeners and go back to the early episodes, there would be twenty and thirty minutes. Eclipse, if you're looking for just some boom, go do that. We always have that choice. And so, I think at the base camp idea of always looking at myself in comparison to your ago or two years ago is my foundation, more stable, do I have in my if I'm climbing? The mountain is my base camp where I feel comfortable at higher altitude that I wasn't year ago. I do want to what you just said about the earlier shows. I mean folks, I start, we're, we're nearing show, seven hundred when I started though there were gosh, two hundred or so podcast, that were just clips of zig Ziglar. So obviously, you can go to Ziglar dot com and purchase things. I always have I'm getting ready to go on a road trip, and I'm going to have the whole disks series to listen to the what, what is it a success? What's the big packet of motivated? Yeah. Okay. So you can go get that Ziglar. But my gosh, right here on the podcast. If you go to the early podcast, I mean, I play clips here and there, just like in this show where it may be a minute. Maybe five minutes, but you listen to twenty minutes straight of the best stuff zig Ziglar has to offer absolutely free. So feel free to go back to those early ones. The unnumbered ones are just a clips and really for the first couple of years that I was doing this. We played. Really long zig clips as well. All right. Here's one that I want to point out a couple of resources in regards to as well. Karen Miller white. She says I'd say I'm a strong seven I need to continue to assign tasks two blocks of time that always strengthens my performance when nearly the entire day's scheduled in it allows for everything I want to do. Well again, we talked about the Ziglar performance planner you can get that Ziglar dot com. I'd also encourage you to go back, and I didn't grab the number, but just recently, we had an interview with Michael Hyatt about his new book free to focus its even if preparing for making that schedule looking at his book, it's really masterful, and especially looking at the arena, his middle section of cut is what he called it. What things can you delegate? Automate in eliminate I it's a great place to start first before you take everything and try to schedule it. What stuff? Do you need to not schedule? Or can you automate doesn't need to be a part of your schedule or delegates? Somebody else's doing. It is a great resource. And then this one Tom, I want you to talk about this is great. Travis alexander. He says, I would rate myself at a six, what would help. Most is setting in accomplishing goals. I'm very driven and strive to be better everyday. However, I get lost with setting goals and seeing those goals, hit, even minor daily gold. I feel like seeing that you've accomplished what you. Plan to accomplish would create momentum in you and seeing the little winds would give you more confidence towards reaching major goals seem to get lost in goal setting. I just need to discipline myself to deliberately ignite intention, every day that being said, if I can cross the bridge of goal setting I feel that, that, that alone would take me to an eight and inspire me on my journey to eleven right after that Lorena more, she says, Ditto to that will Tom goals. I mean, I think when people hear goals Ziglar is not far behind. I mean, it's the Ziglar brand Ziglar company that is probably number one, if you type in goals, it'd be interesting goal setting in search engine. Ziglar is going to be up there. So that said, you and I did a great show and you talked for a good while about us, don't know if it's a study you did, or survey that you're that you were aware of on goal setting goal goal mindset and problem solving share with us. Yeah. So one of my friends. Consoled and in some research and this is what they discovered. This is kind of interesting. There's three types of people out there. There are people who are very goals driven. There are people who are very problem solving oriented. And there are people who just see opportunity. The goal setting mindset, the people who just love goal setting. That's only about twenty percent of the population. About eighty percent or the problem, solvers, and these are the people who really get a kick out of right in the to do list down riding out all their problems, and then checking them off all day long, then that smaller set, you know, you'll see these, these are the, you know, the true entrepreneurs who just look at everything is operatives and said they're wired a little bit different. But here's the great news, if you're more problem, and here's the thing. A lot of problem solving oriented people they feel guilty because they just can't get excited about setting goals. And so I wanna do a mind shift, you know, a Jedi mind trick on you and Ziglar. We have the seven step goal setting process. So the first step is to write down your goal. The second step is to write down all the benefits of achieving the goal. The third step are the major obstacle to mountain, you've got to climb in order to reach this goal and then it goes to the people in, you know, that she got to work with the groups and associations that you need to do it, the skills or knowledge, that you need to learn. And then number six is the plan of action number seven is the due date. So those are all goal setting. If you're a problem solver instead of writing down the goal, I want to achieve just write down the problem. I want to solve. Number two, the benefits to solving this problem. In other words, actually achieving a goal or solving a problem, the same exact system works. It's just how we phrase it. And so, but we tell our when, when we take control of our mind and we tell our brain what to do her. We tell our body, and our brain what to do the choices, it's gotta make because we're giving an instructions and we say, okay goal setting promise I'll same thing two sides of the same coin. It's just how approach it when we walked for those steps. We are far more likely to achieve it to inter solid the problem or to get the goal we have tons of stuff. It's dot com on goals. In fact, I have a whole section in the book on choose to win on goals, which I highly recommend by the way. It's, you know, near and dear to my good stuff. It's good. Tom, and I'll wrap this up here, it would be interesting, as I'm thinking about this just personally, if we go down the Ziglar wheel of life, if we go down. And look at that folks, that again, it's physical is I when physical nutrition, I put in their number two family and friends relationships, three mental four financial five spiritual six career business seven personal. If I go down through those, I think that if I if I listed that out there, some of those spokes in some areas within each spoke, where I have goals. There are some where my my, my muse my avatar in essence is a problem, and there are others where I'm opportunity. I think I could find that'd be an interesting survey to do to how do people see those because I really associate with those three different things, I think somewhat to some degree. I do associate with all them depending on the spoke. So that's interesting. That would be a you figure that out for the next show. I'd love to do it. I'd love the note would be really interesting survey to do. But I, I hope that gives people freedom to look at that, man, if you get strung up in goals, Tom just gave you some great methodology to do that. But also. Yeah. Think about what would he talked about. Are you a goal not speak to you in this area of your life? Is that a problem to fix or an opportunity to go after I really liked that Tom? It really rounds it out. Well, hey, so I'm gonna call this one, the free coaching session with Tom and an on that folks. I mean Tom does do executive coaching zig does executive coaching Ziglar does. And if you want to you're interested in that Goede, Ziglar dot com. It's amazing, the resources that you can find to really dig in, and especially on a topic like this to get help and get direction, and I'll tell you folks, this, and I think you'll trust it because you trust Ziglar.

Financial Decisions You Hope Your Friends Make

"Should you buy a second home? How 'bout boat an RV Tom share? No. These things are horrible decisions. But the decisions your friends might make its Brian Preston. The money guy restoring order to your financial chaos. Retired investing taxes you got financial questions. He's got financial answers. It's Brian Preston the money guy. Yes. So what we're going to cover today our financial decisions because I think we talked about this in show prep. We can't call them mistakes by themselves inherently solo but financial decisions that you hope your peers or those around you may. Well, here's the big thing. A lot of what we talk about on the show is helping our viewers listeners not make the big financial mistakes. Go derail their path to financial independence. So we'll tell you a few of these things today are massive things that very well could be mistakes if you. Don't have your financial order of operations. Right. So, but that doesn't mean that these things can't be a blast. So it is financial mistakes that you truly hope your friends or relatives will make. So that your back pocket doesn't get punished. But you still get to have the fun. That's it. That's start off. There's a few house cleaning things we want to jump into first of all money, God dot com. If you go to the website, you can sign up give us your Email address, your zip code. Why do we ask zip codes? We want to know where you live in the country. In case we start doing some love things and find out where we have more than three people in one area listening. Did you just drop a nugget in there that we might be taking the show on the road intially? I mean, I don't want to we're not setting dates yet we won't be in your town may fifteenth. But definitely give us give us your your Email address and your zip code. Here's the second thing, we're grow, and as you can tell we have a set. Now, we we're adding listeners and subscribers constantly so much. So that we now need a money guy employees. So if you're a person we're looking for an injury. Level position that can grow with the show. So if you're a person that's got an understanding of basic finance, a hunger for you know, good content and then just connecting with the money guy family. We want you to reach out to us. Bo what Email address you'll meet attached to this. Yeah. Shoot me an Email. You can send it to Bobio at money guide dot com. I if it's something you're interested in you'd be at somebody. We're not looking for virtual employees, and we want somebody who's willing to good there live in Nashville or relocate to the Nashville area and would like to be part of this. This budding enterprise. You're ready to jump into this. Yeah. Let's do it. So it's not hard to see out there in society. I mean, whether you go country music you hear the song where me a boat narrow yeti one ten from one of my neighbors. You know, it's one of his songs. And then we got hip hop artists. Rappers have been really talking about their consumption live lifestyle for for decades. The thing I think is interesting is that as humans. We are hard wired to want to stand out from our peers, that's right. And a lot of times that can manifest itself in through consumption because we wanna buy stuff that we perceive will be fun as well as make us stand down service sort of. So I'll put together here's a few of these that, I know financially might not be best for your back pocket. But they sure are fun and the first one second homes. Yeah. This one is so funny to me because this isn't one that I feel like so often people tell us this is an. Aspiration of theirs. They will know that they've finally made it when they're able to have that beach house or that mountain house or that second home or whatever the case may be rather than being a symbol of not making good financial decisions. This is sort of the Khuda gras of making good financial decisions. At least as far as Robin Leach would suggest to us, and I would mitt I have fallen prey to this hour. And so I can share that Moore wisdom comes from experience. So it's good when you have some some decisions that might not have gone. Well, I think even talked about this when in our financial mistakes up over. But here's why these things are siren song. Let me give you the Brochiere brochure. Hop points appreciating investment potential. That's as real estate right known real estate, obviously making more of it unless you're in Hawaii. So those little joke there at the end unlimited vacations. Oh, if you if you own a second house, you can always go there. You're the boss rental income. Comb. Yeah. If you're there part of the time, why don't you use that as a way to generate more income for yourself tax deduction? What is not to like about sticking door favorite uncle? That's the big one. And then Bo you wrote this one access to different weather season. Yeah. If you live in the far north and you get like twenty two inches of snow. Every winter you may want to have that Florida beach house where you don't have to deal with that Weinstein to give more than twenty two inches. Yeah. I don't know. I'm I'm from the south. We went on south we three inches, and we freak out here. So that's why the twenty two sounds like a blizzard does. So let's talk about this from a hard data fach because I think a lot of them you mentioned, Robin Leach and he pass away not too long ago. But you know, if you're a child of the eighties or nineties, you know, lifestyles of the rich and famous, and there's so many things that are put before as by the marketers and the industry the cottage industries that are convincing us to consume consume consume that we think the next decision you making your path to success. Is probably doing something like this. But what are the actual numbers say four successful people? If you go look at Dr Thomas, Stanley's, stop acting rich book, this is the the data. He had on second homes. Sixty four percent of millionaires never owned a vacation home a beach bungalow or mountain cabin. So over one half of all folks chronic than half more than sixty percents sixty four percent. And then those are this. I thought this was this is why I kept this that this is from the first time we did this show. But I think it gives you perspective on what got us into the real estate crisis of two thousand eight through eleven to two thousand eleven was then according to the national association of realtors second homes accounted for four of ten residential home sales in two thousand five so that was before we had the downturn. And the typical home buyer was fifty two years of age with a median household income of eighty thousand six hundred. Wow. That does not sound like somebody that ought to have multiple home. Does not sound the profile of someone who should be diving into a second large real estate projects because when I see old data to go see if I can find newer data was interesting for me to see that. If you look second homes only account for about six percent of the total real estate marketplace. What is interesting, though, if you like Florida is a lot of it. Yeah. Yeah. Florida california. I mean, it was amazing. You know, there was only a few states that accompany accounted for like half of the second homes out there. So since you seen the brochure high points of all the potential appreciation, the rental income the tax deductions. Let's get into the reality of the situation. And here's what I'll promise a sprinkle in here. I'll sprinkle in my own life experience in this little bit too. So that you can hear the story and here, my my, whoa. Tell on why you might need to be careful with this decision. So for a second home. A song about the buying. Yes. So obviously when you go to purchase any sort of real estate transaction. There are transaction costs associated with that. There are closing costs associated with it. And if you're not paying cash for the property itself, they're gonna be financing costs. There's an interest charge. If you're going to own this thing over a long period of time, a real estate commission of six percent. I mean, the thing is real estate is an illiquid asset. It is not something that you can get the whim of selling tomorrow and getting the cash just doesn't work that way. Even in a good situation. It takes time to turn it back into cash furnishings. Here's the thing about furnishings when I think about a bed or a couch. You can get seven years out of that. Right. Seven years. They advertise on the TV when you're with rental property because problem with rental property is nobody treats it like, it's there's they treat it like rental property so couches last at most three years beds. If they don't steal because you'll put a waterproof mattress cover, but they'll get stolen in the first year. So it goes six months where people are sleeping on without the waterproof mattress cover see replacing the at every two to three years. It's just it's horrible. How much it costs to get the secondary house yet? Great. And I don't even think about I mean, obviously, if you have renters in there, it's going to have to replace stuff. But I think, you know, everyone whoever has bought a lake house, and even if they weren't planning on writing it. They just wanted their secondary house. They didn't want it to be empty. They still wanted every room to be furnished and they wanted to be decorated and they wanted to look nice when people came over it's hard enough just to do that stuff for your primary residence. And then you have to double that cost to be able to do it on a secondary residence. The price is certainly. More than just what the sticker on the pamphlet says maintenance. Ooh, this is the one I think that you've gotten burned on the most right? Well, I mean it ties into the furniture or the turnover the furniture, but then the other thing because we all you heard me say a large portion of secondary home market is in Florida. A lot of that is coastal. We all want to be near the ocean. There's this thing that side effect of being near the ocean. All the air has salt in it. So everything corrodes a lot faster. You put on new light fixture on the back deck. It's corroding in just a few years. You put a heat in air system on top of the roof because most is like a condo where the heating and air on the air on the roof. So you have to hire a crane to pull this put which. Right. The put it up on the roof maintenance is a mess in editing count, the additional cost of utilities because you know, what another thing about a rental property nobody treats it like it's their own when they pay him for utilities to they leave the doors open. They run the air conditioner fifty dollars. I mean, they sleep five degrees colder when it's a rental property than they do with their own house all that stuff adds up to two on going cost commuting. This is the thing. I have an annual golf trip. They kind of started on the back of going down to my vacation rental property to do annual updates to K, and then we'd play golf that's how to lure some additional workers down there. With me is that we'd get around of golf. Fortunately, now that we've gotten rid of the the the the condo. We can actually focus on having fun. And that's the problem. I think with with secondary homes is that especially secondary rental property that you think is in a vacation area when you actually get to use it you you don't get to use it during peak town rise, you won't the rental income you end up using it during off seasons. And then a lot of times you're running around a WalMart mattress stores. You do run around all kinds of things trying to keep up with the maintenance of it. Well, you you make a point about community that even if you are someone who may. Maybe you live in the northern United States. And you want them beach house in Florida, you're probably not going to drive down there. Every time he needed to go for a pair. Or you do want to experience it. There's additional travel cost where maybe if you had a different option just go somewhere closer to home that was driving. You wouldn't have to pay for plane tickets, or whatever the case may be. So it's an expensive endeavor just to get back and forth to your vacation property, and I probably have jaded this a little bit because of Mon experience because I put this in there is more of a rental property than just a straight up secondary home. But I know with renting because we all think that we're gonna make more money from a rental property, the management company takes a huge cuss. Right. I mean, they're usually the ones that are coming out on the end of the whole transaction. And then when you do get tired of it. I know we had a lot of trouble. We had one of the the owners of my condo. They just change the life. There was some marriage changes going on. So they decided they wanted to get out of it. So we all decided we want. It's hard to sell. I mean, it just took a lot longer to sell them. We thought and once again, you're facing transaction real estate costs and all kinds of things that you just didn't count about count on. And then let's get back. I want to kind of close this out to that fools. Gold of the tax deduction is I hear so many people think I'm going to rental property because I'll get a great tax deduction and everybody here's because there's articles all the places say that you can deduct up to twenty five thousand dollars a year from your rental, hence, the problem is as soon as you make a hundred thousand dollars of income up two hundred fifty thousand that deduction completely phases out. So you'd have to take it every which I get you don't get to take it. It just sits there and a cruise every year, and essentially taunt you when you do your taxes until you actually liquidate that holding so all of these losses are just building up in the background. So not only is it are there transaction costs is in his sometime expensive to get out of ribbon difficult to get out of you, don't even. The tax benefit if you're a higher income individuals until you actually are able to complete that transaction. So a lot of people were then probably think, well, that's okay. And we'll get a lot of personal use out of this property problem is if you use the property for more than fourteen days a year you jeopardize some of the deductability of all his expenses that I just talked about. So you can see that. This thing is wrought with tons of booby traps. And and things that you have to be somewhat careful with the advice. We always give people is that the money is not made on the actual running of the property if you truly go get into real estate. And so I think this is true with all real estate. It's all in what you paid for it on the purchase price. If you got in at a really all the people who probably bought in twenty two thousand nine two thousand ten during the market collapse. Probably did okay because the purchase price. And so on the intrinsic it's all back to Warren, Buffett's, intrinsic value discussion. The problem is if you're doing it for. Cashflow it's not going to work. But here's what does work if you have a friend. If you have a relative that owns a beach condo. It's awesome to go use their beach. I think about a lake house someone who has a lake house with the boats and the jet skis and all the toys. It is fantastic to get to reap the rewards and reap the fun. And joy of that. If you're not the one who has to foot the Bill on I'm still reading reading Johnson Coleman's book because we're having on and not to distant future, and he talks about how it also creates a boring vacation because you're going to the same place every year when you buy your vacation now, I will tell you that actually garnered a lot of negative comments on Twitter when he pushed rival shack because there are people said that they built a lot of childhood memories and other things from going to a family instead, but but to each his own if you won't variety, you probably don't wanna own a vacation home, we live in a world where there are some great alternatives to actually being home because we say this all the time Brian instead of going out and buying a second piece of real estate. At the beach or the mountains add up how much it's going to cost for you to carry that every year, you could pay for some pretty nice vacations with that annual expenditure. You're gonna spend on owning the property and with things like the R B O now Airbnb, it's not as difficult as it once was to get to the beach pretty cost effective when my buddy who does all the organizing for that goal trip that I used to do for maintenance on my condo. We for the last three probably four years. Actually, we've used VR B O and home away which are owned by the same company. Same ownership get some beautiful car. I mean, we don't even do condos. We do houses that are pretty close walkable distance the beach, and it's cheap. 'cause it was off is kind of off season. When we go off trip in the early spring. So is a lot cheaper. I can truthfully now get to split this with everybody goes on the golf trip, which is a real sweet deal for me when I was taking everybody down there to play golf. I was paying for. Yes. Think about that beach condo. Oh was mom. You I covering that to to large agree. So it's much better to very healthy alternative to consider renting somebody else's vacation rental. So so funny as again, if you're someone who just listened to us the I two or stitch or something like that. And you're not watching the live shows. We do a livestream. We have a live chat going right now. One of the listeners says chimed in and said, hey, why are you guys think about timeshares? Oh, man. You could not ask for a better transition point. Because guess what? If I just told you owning one hundred percent of the time doesn't work out. Well, how about partial Tom Tom show? That's actually our next point. But here's my thing about Tom shares. I think everybody should have a healthy skepticism to end it any industry that is built upon. Pressured cells and people who have to give you something to get you there like big giveaways to get you there. I mean, there's a reason that they'll give you park tickets or give you free hotel stays they'll give you one hundred and fifty dollars two hundred dollars Algiers. They are they are essentially trying to get you in there. So that they can put the pressure cooker of of getting their high pressure sales person on there. And then getting you to make a decision that you might think is a good decision now. But will you think that same thing in five years in seven years in ten years in fifteen years, Tom shares? I mean now there's a whole cottage industry that gets you out of these things now, but they're pretty tough. That's right break, those contracts as a reason companies like Marriott, and so forth have jumped into these things over the last decade. I mean, that's what we get questions all the time. Whether it's via the ask the money guy series or just through the money on website and one of the questions, we often get is how. How do I get out of a timeshare? I have this thing. I can't move away from what's my way to exit that a pretty big red flag should be. If you're participating in something that other people know is really really difficult to get out of. I think these things have evolved. When you first timeshares I came on the scene, you are essentially buying weeks in maybe a specified. Structure building camp area. Now, they've gone to these point systems. Right. These point systems have added a level of complexity that you almost need to be an engineer or an accountant to something in an analytical background to where you can understand the administration the research the complexity timeshares are not easy necessarily to deal with all his points anymore, and I pay attention to the maintenance cost. I was shocked to see it's not a lot of your ongoing annual payments every year. You're required to pay. Not only do you have an upfront costs timeshares. You have an annual maintenance requirement those things go up. Yes. Not static in time. I mean, it is not something where you're walked in. And usually they go pretty quickly. So it's not uncommon to find out that your ongoing annual maintenance after you know, a few years goes by gets to be bigger than what you could just go rent that. Same vacation for yourself, which is less than ideal. When you're supposedly financing this thing to give you a great economic alternative to financing, your vacation in the future. One of the thing that really one of the things that really bothers me about timeshares is that when they're most often like when their pitch to you is when you're actually on property, and you are in the emotional high of how much you love this place, and how much fun you're having. And how much the film at the families having in a second. We're gonna talk about some alternatives to consider. But one thing we get all the time. When a client comes back and asks about a timeshare, you don't wanna personal friend says, hey, I just did this thing, and you won't believe how good this deal is always. Okay. Wait a month comeback to real life live at home. Do your thing for a month. And let's talk about this thing. It's amazing how much the shiny not shininess and gloss Innis of that aware off if you can just remove yourself from the emotion of the moment. That's the reason they make you said that the seminars. That's the reason they try to sell them win. You're on property. Truthfully. Is great advice about most things. Whether it's. New cars, anything, that's shiny. They kind of occupies your brain. Give yourself a little bit of time to dodge us the emotional side of of the entire transaction. Here's the last thing. I want to close out on before we get to some alternatives for you to consider is that begin with the end in mind. Now, we know that that is from the seven habits of highly effective people. It's. It's also great advice when it comes to timeshares because if you begin with the end in mind, you'll be thinking about the fact is a bodice timeshare bind to this process m I actually buying into an obligation for my kids because it is hard to. There's a reason think about this that guy who comes on every morning on your cable news channel telling you that he's had so much success of getting people out of timeshares. He's obviously not doing this for charity. Right. He's getting highly compensated to get people out of time shows, how bad is a scenario that you're willing to pay somebody enough money that they're advertising on morning, TV to get you out of something you paid to get into be very skeptical of anything that's sold you through high pressured sales, and they have to incentivize you to be there. Just doesn't add a great point that you're making one I have a wonderful client who work with one of the things we're doing some state document review for him. And he said. You has these timeshares that he owns and he's paid for and has the pieces. He's like, okay. Well, I want to leave it this group of people, you know, siblings or nephews or friends or whatever and ask them the question like, well is that what you know, is that what they want because essentially what you're doing by leaving real estate to multiple people as your your sort of forcing their hand to go into business together and own something that they may or may not want own. So that's a big estate planning thing you think, but even if you have kids, then you have a vacation property or a second home is that something that your kids want to actually owned together when you're not here any longer. It's an important thing to think about so about what's the alternatives to consider you guys probably watching as Bron dislikes timeshares. That's actually, absolutely wrong. I'll love staying in timeshares, and I just don't want to own or be the one that's responsible for the financial obligation associated with that timeshare anytime, I go to Disney probably the last three times we've gone to Walt Disney World, I have. And a Disney vacation club property. Yep. I don't own Disney vacation club property in a way. I do it is there's this website. I go to called DVD request dot com. It's David vacation club rentals. And I'll just say last time we stayed like I was down there. Not too many months ago, we stayed in bay lake towers kind of one bedroom. They had to foot there. The couch folds out into a bed. They have a chair that folds out into a bed. So both my kids at separate beds. My wife and had a separate bedroom. There's two bathrooms the kids have their own bathroom. We had our own bathroom had a washing machine. We had a full kitchen. So we can have cereal or oatmeal before we hit the parks. It was spectacular. And you can do this. There's so many people out there selling points and David's vacation club roses made it better. I get nothing by the way. I get nervous about sharing this tip because you say to your now, I'm worried everybody else is going to glut up the system so that I have harder times for myself when allied to go. To DisneyWorld, but his deadly nothing wrong with vacation club property is just you don't wanna have all the financial obligations. There's another one read week dot com is alarmed online marketplace for timeshares. So you cannot only buy and sell them, but you can also rent them. So if I'm hearing you right? It's very easy in the world, which would live now technologies made it where you can enjoy all the benefits or a lot of the benefits of what a timeshare property has offer without having to actually own it yourself. It'd be the one that comes out of pocket for those costs. Now, they've gotten smart like when you go to the Disney vacation club rentals. They will have special fireworks parties, or, you know, desert parties or some only for true Disney vacation remembers, but I'm okay with passing up on that elevator ride to the roof. When I think about the fact that I'm not tied to that property other than that week that I'm doing vacation. So that's a nice thing to consider. So it's so funny man our audit. Again, got the livestream. I've got the comments common. So then right one person said. Hey, what do you guys think about timeshares? Well, this other listener just commented. Hey, you know, our vs could be a great alternative to a vacation home. Yeah. We'll do. We'll do our I'll put our views before the next. Let's talk about recreational vehicles in RV's fall into that. I think boats fall under that, you know, a lot of people. Here's what's in the brochure on our visa, and what people like them, the qualifies a second home tax deduction. You dig mortgage interest deduction on them. But the problem is they depreciate like automobiles. It is a tax deduction like a house, they depreciate like an automobile. Unfortunately, they're not very fuel efficient. Right. I mean, these things still burn a lot of gas. There's good chance you pay somebody to let you keep the RV their. Yeah. Because most most places you can't just keep parked in your front yard. I can't keep it parked in your driveway your pick on one of my next door neighbors. They've moved back to Chicago. So, and I don't think he was since the show he bought an RV in the last year or so, and I think, and I I don't know if he'll follow this as far as I know he's all used it twice. Okay. I'm not going to say how much you paid. But it's not cheap. And I know he was paying one hundred one hundred fifty dollars a month just to have it part just to park somewhere that wasn't silly. Facility. And I mean, it seems good on in theory. I just don't know that that pull behind is gonna add as much value because everything in the brochure looks better than it is reality because you know, you have visions of your kids and the birds singing and the kids enjoying the campfire. And you're telling some story when you are seventeen and the kids all sitting there, you know, on the hands listening to was more likely to happen is your kids are going to be ticked off that they're in the same room in the back bunk era together, they're going to be pulling each other's hair. You'll be mad earned through your dad. I mean, it's just Barney through your data because that's what I had this crazy vision. I was go rent an RV and go out to the Grand Canyon in my teenagers like dead. You'll hate me because they'll burn through the data before we even lead the state, and she's right? I mean, she's exactly right. And then the other thing I thought is that. Sure. RV's or fun. We love Georgia football. Yep. Go. We're both BULLDOGS. I was you know, if you can have a friend if you go down to Jacksonville, the Georgia Florida game, if you have a friend with an RV, it's Rockstarts minute is rock star status any football game to tell gate and stuff like that. Especially with some of the RV's that they have but d one own it. No, you won't your friend to have to clean the black and gray tank after the weekends over even though two black and gray knowing that maybe that's the gross stuff. Oh because we're thinking about armone. Yeah. Is all encompassing. That's the black tank is the gross. Oh, the great tank is what you're comes out of the sinks, washing dishes feels pretty gross. So somebody has to deal with that stuff. I mean that is all part of owning the weird never thought about this before have you ever thought about it? Do you think he goes? I mean, we've all seen Christmas vacation we we've all seen where he dumps it into the down in the super. It's it's less than ideal. It's better to build those memories in that friends RV. So what's the healthy alternative to an RV cruise, America dot com? You can actually rent they have over one hundred and thirty locations when I did this show a few years ago talking about RV's, they only had one hundred ten locations. Yeah. Now, they have one hundred and thirty locations across the country. Go check it out. You can go rent a camper and RV and see if it's something you really like look this is one we have a lot of clients. They say that one of their big retirement goals as they want to go get an RV and go around the country, and that's great. That's a goal something you on do one thing we always encourage clients to do especially that ever actually done that trip before rent one and go on a trip to see how you like it before you actually write a check and pay for one. It's a fantastic easy thing to do to at least test drive it no pun intended to make sure that makes sense for you and your family. So this next one. Of course, I'm gonna we're gonna talk about boats. But I gotta get it prop hang on hang don't know. Get mad. Don't get mad. I'm coming right back. Did you know he was going off screen for just my memory of this cold medicine is so horrible that I had some great comments that I wanna make sure I get him in here about this next one so boat break out another thousand. This is Michael he might be. I don't know if he's tuning in or not, but breakout another thousand we've all heard the joke that the two best as the own a boat is the day you bite and the day you sell this. Right. Why what happens with all humor? There's a little bit of Jerusalem in all of it kind of makes it good. And then here's something I since Michael gave me a joke. I'll give him a little piece of advice that he said that his father gave him. He knows bothers. He's the advice. He gave Michael was you never find a toy in boat is a toy. And it's that's actually. You know? So it's really good advice. If you think about that because boats. Here's here's the visual visual give you think about it. They always have a brochure with some young scantily clad woman. Right. It's on the boat with you. It's the best version of yourself. It's once it's the same thing as the RV GIS in the RV, they got the kids all looking and everyone's smiling. But on the boat is got this hot. You know spouse with you here on the open water. It just seems great. You can practically smell the air coming into your nose is as you're on the open waters. There's boat shows where they get off sided about it, the thousands of people from all over. But but the problem is they never talk about the cost of maintenance the cost of storage, the fuel is just all these things drag on you. And here's the stats that kind of blow my mind when you think about a boat, according to this is same book, Dr Thomas Stanley, stop acting rich. Ninety three percent of boat enthusiasts are not millionaires. That's worth repeating ninety three percent of folks who would classify themselves as boating enthusiasts are not on paper million. I can tell while you're freaking out because when you think about the order of operations or the pyramid pyramid of your financial wife abode has got to be on the top. It's like the cherry has only after you've accomplished all these other financial goals. But obviously of ninety three percent of boating enthusiasts are not millionaires. Somebody got the order of authority Chatelineaux out of kilt. Their ears is this will flip the script. The other way seventy percent of millionare's of never owned a boat. So seventy percent of those folks who were interviewed by Dr Staley classified as millionaires have never owned about majority of and that's more than the majority of the lion's share. But a sliver of thirty percent of them bought a boat at some point in their life. It doesn't even say their curb boat-owners. Either just just says that at some point that made that decision. So it's one of those things where I think it's fun. If you can have a friend or relative who owns it seven days a week, and you just the friend that shows up on the Saturday or Sunday or the holidays and gets the ride in the boat. And all you have to do is throw in for gas. That's I would say win that's another negative. I mean, I had a very, you know, one of my friends is parents had a boat boat. House is still have a friend in Georgia has a great boat house that I love going to boats and stuff, but the thing is the marina gas stations rip you off. It is not a deal. So all your smart people who own boats have five gallon containers. Rodney around their pick up trucks where they loaded up back on. That's how it's just it's just the gift that keeps on giving. Here's the alternatives to consider where the boat is Bo clubs. I mean, if you're able instead of buying a boat that you go regret and have depreciation and all kind of things maybe ease into the decision by considering a boat club where you know, you can pay just a monthly fee, and then you also get access to more boats, and that's only if you really had his it so much so or maybe you're awake border or your outdoor enthusiasts. And this just makes sense for you consider doing something like that. So you're renting that opportunity versus really chunking down a lot of money on a lifestyle. Now, obviously this varies depending on where you live and what part of the country, but a lot of times we've actually seen that the cost of boat club. Memberships is at is the same or less expensive than the cost. It would cost for you to just how's your boat at the marina. So you could actually have access to a number of different boats in different type of boats for simply what you would pay to keep your boat stored there because one of the things the boat. It's like an RV you gotta have somewhere to keep it. In most places. So this is the point of this show where if you listen to this show three four years ago when we originally did it that's where we ended it. But bow this is where you've added a little bit of extra flavor. Well, I'll like do we put some honorable mentions in here. And I thought this was pretty good. We added here's some other things decisions you hope that your friends and family will make so you can benefit from golf club country membership a country club membership. Here's what I just did a quick Google search the average annual cost of a golf club. Membership was six thousand two hundred and forty dollars about five hundred and twenty dollars a month. And that's just the ongoing cost most country clubs have a big initial cost right that initiation fee capital cost if they're doing renovations on the property or putting in new greens on the on the putting greens. So that's country clubs it's much better. If your friends or members than if you are, you know, I have I have a great friend. And he we used to live in Atlanta. He lived. Down and had a country club membership for a golf course down there. And I used to love that I could always go plus one and get to pet get to play pay to play and I didn't have to pay the annual or the monthly dues. It was a wonderful. I'll tell you once again this wisdom comes to experience. I'll lived in a golf community. It was one of those things kind of like you go through your scale of operations of what success looks liking your brain. And I thought being a member of golf club was part partisan. When you know you made it it is. And he is crazy. How society creates this can consumption based upon what you think successful people should do. I joined a golf club. And it was one of those things where the initiate a paid initiation fee, then had ongoing monthly expenses, and it was fun for that season of my life. But you feel like you had us sometimes played golf not because I want to play golf, but because I was trying to get my cost of money back out. And that probably didn't spend that time with the family. That probably should have. And I'm not picking on my golfers because I love a good round of golf too. But it's just that that money. I mean is it the best use of that money and truthfully golf clubs are struggling a little bit? It is something that is that is having a little bit of trouble. I thought this was before get season tickets. Yeah. We put this one on here. Here's something. I did a quick search trying to find some financial data to share with you guys on season tickets because we love both of us were season ticket for Georgia BULLDOGS. When we lived in say, I've been pretty fortunate that I've been able to miss a lot of these mistakes that you've kind of done a lot of these. This is one that I hit the season tickets is one that I had as well the problem with season tickets, especially like a team like Georgia where you have to keep renewing your tickets, and you have to make a charitable contribution to get access to get the privilege, the privilege to pay for it. Was you keep paying for the tickets is that you want to keep your tickets. So you kiss you stay on this. Treadmill of the process, even when you find out that you're no longer really going to the games or what if you start having. Now, we've had to really good season go Kirby, but I've had some a lot of seasons with Georgia football that I was paying a lot of money for these season tickets in this just there wasn't a lot of market value Chinese seats. And that's what we talking about college football. There's actually research out there seatgeek does research on the value of NFL season tickets. There's remember there's thirty two NFL franchises their research showed from this is back from twenty fifteen on the pulled this that ten of the thirty two NFL franchises approximately a third. Okay. You actually better buying tickets on the open market than you would buying season two. I mean, it'd be more cost effective to buy their research show that it should not work that way, you should not be benefiting from just buying on the open market versus getting the insider Vange of season ticket, but it makes sense below. There's a lot of fun. We're here Nashville. Now, we have some dear dear folks, that we love who are huge fans and they have season tickets, and they will swear by them. And that's awesome. We have some employees that are resemble the, and maybe again, it's ordered operations doesn't make sense. Are you buying them appropriate? Word of operations is still standing by one of my favorite things is when I have friends who are the season ticket holders, and they invite me to get a game exactly right or work for a company that has season even bettas in there, even better seats. And maybe they come with Alexa, Sloan that we get free drinks and food off of it as well. You see Alabama's a winning all of our employees just ran into the window right there. Company season tickets. The last thing you put this one on here bone. I thought it was pretty good was that it is funny. It's not only buying things or season tickets or boats, or so we talked about how like I've mentioned like if you go on to Las Vegas. It's fun. If you travel with somebody who enjoys the gambling more so than you. So that you can watch their housing and not feel like, and I will tell you. I had last year. I had a college trip where all my college buddies. We haven't seen each other in forever. We decided we'd go meet up in Vegas. The problem. Now, all these guys are pretty successful. So I was thinking man we're going to get out there. And we're gonna have a good time. I was an I'm not a gambler, I will tell you. I'm much more quick to run a casino than I am to gamble in a casino because I'm looking for the five dollar tables, if they have something less than a five dollar table now down to downtown Vegas. And watching them spin carnival things I'll do it because I'm that cheap. I was the gamble. Or out at his group. So again bling trip when nobody gambles is not a good trip. So that's what it is. Nice. If you're going to do some of these thrill seeking type vacation or other things is nice. If you if you're not wired that way to have somebody who is right. So that it kicks up the fun of the experience, that's kind of an honorable mention. Yeah. If you can have someone who has a higher risk tolerance than you to kind of make it exciting in my opinion. That's a lot more fun because it's a lot more fun to be able to Pat them on the back and say, it'll be okay. That'd be the one that's getting patted on the back. Now, I know a lot of you go watch this show on YouTube, and then you're gonna get some negative comments. 'cause you go tell us to grandparents had this boat house that you had some of your best childhood memories. That now you plan on doing the same thing. With your kids is go be a we have an employee this go tell us for predator tickets are the best thing, and I'm not I'm not I'm you've kind of already said this. I think everything on this list could be priceless and we have shared that is. Much better to buy experiences than it is to just go out and buy more toys at op occupy your garage. Your closet and end up in Salvation Army at some point. Right. So I'm not shooting everything down. I think the biggest thing we'd like to tell our viewers and listeners is make sure you have your priorities, right? Everything in your financial life should have a plan. Your army of dollar bills needs to be need to be a good fill general when a good fill general creates a plan, so not a single dollar is wasted or waas without a purpose. And I'm worried that we heard there's a lot of people out there financing lifestyle boats of RV's of second properties of timeshares when they don't have a plan of action for that army of dollar bills. That's what we're saying. We're not here to pick on all of these things as quote all financial mistakes. Some of these things really could be great for your family. Just make sure your checking all the boxes going through that odor of operations and be. Being successful with your financial decision making. That's the let me give you even go a step further homework. Go out there and look for our financial order of operations episode. Great upset, maybe we even can link to it. And it will be a great way for you to kind of have a resource tool to help you make the right decisions for your financial life. So guys is you can tell we have a lot of fun sharing this type of advice. We we hope that you are the person you've reached so much success that you have all these and more in the fact that not only have you reach financial independence. You have enough success that you could go by the boat. Go by the season tickets, go on golf trips with your friends and still need a financial adviser. But you get to a point where all the decision making all those toys all those decisions are going to need somebody to give you a second opinion. When you get to that point of looking over your shoulder, and you wanna make sure you're doing right. We want you to kind of remember the the money got team, you know, bound wealth in the above. Cycle. We give you all this free advice. The only thing we ask you to pay us back is when you get to that level of success reach back out to us and give us a chance. So one of the things we're about to do is at the end of every one of these live session. We're gonna do a Q and A we're going to h some questions if you're someone who's out there listening, I tunes your check us out on Stitcher. Iheartradio, come to one of the YouTube live sessions, you can actually see what our faces look like when we make goofy expressions. You can watch Brian go offscreen come back on screen. Reindeer lingers. You can we don't have any of those. This thing is so pure, so clean. None of those. And then one of the most fun things would do with the very end of the show. We answer your questions in real time. If you have financial questions or you want to ask us about, hey, I'm thinking about this timeshare, should I do it. Or how do I know what to do Roth or pretexts we're here to answer those if you haven't checked out a livestream come check it out start asking.

Thank rocket mortgage DOT COM and Gyco for sponsoring this program so What's new in your world straight? I let yesterday was such a monumental day. I completed the mile and a half of trenching. Hooked up all the. Pvc turned on everything and glorious water. Just like I was back in the in the Chinatown Saga with John. Huston story you know where the water's coming from the north. So the out. And I'm Ron Mulholland and I let that water flow baby. Dan Is there an exterior? Pbc that is in a comes on a spool like packs. Yeah string out for one hundred feet probably would have been a much better idea but since I was so you know so such a rookie at this. I went the Lego style. I just assembled everything. He asked the tax. You know PECs great because you can use it for drinking water the Pvc Oh you can't use well you can. You don't WanNa use you. Don't want to use it because it it definitely leeches all the you know the BPA's and stuff okay so the the the PVC route. Is You buy individual lancs. I think they're twelve foot. Maybe they'll you can you can get them twenties at the supply so you can't twenties. And then they have all the different configuration. You know and couplers and then you know. I have a meters coming off main lines with the little half inch screw in attachment than you plug in the Brown plastic tube and then that leaches out to smaller strand tubes to then get little plants that you want to put an individually but you know what. It's so such a relief. I feel like maybe I'm a winner again. I think he may have the realm of winter. Winter I I was doing some tile doing some flooring stuff doing some sinks stuff some bathroom stuff. It's funny I had you know you and I like to focus on those who don't like to work and study them. That's exactly right and I had this new and it's interesting so I've always had this psychological thought which is guys that don't like to work come up with reasons not to work and like. I said I have three guys working. Two of them love to work. One of them hates work. And if I show up randomly to the shop or they're working at any time of the day any weekday. The two that love to work will be working away and one doesn't want to work we'll be looking at the manual or something and if aid them like. Hey what's up ago? That's ozzy immediate defensiveness rights thing. I had to call the place I did. It's like always always on the run and yesterday was I think one of the most interesting concepts and I don't WanNa work which is He was supposed to hang a wall mount sink on the wall. And there's obviously a mounting plate that goes along with it right and then like French cleats onto the wall right French cleats. Yeah right so kind of a you know. It's it's It's it's It's not a pedestal sank. And it's not built in the cabinet just hangs off the wall for the mid century by right. Yeah mid-century little little Sink at the park. Kind of thing in the bathroom so I by the sink. Two of them actually and I come walking in. He's shuffling papers around. Everyone else is just working. And he's kind of shuffling papers. He's studying careful yachting so shadow him. I go hey you know what are you. What are you doing? He has a diggity. No Mound Domino's no mine. Not and he's got the things circled and he's got an Arrow to it. You know it's not know mount and so I I go and then he does this one. I tried to call the place and it's like Oh God I first off. I don't know what language Ozzy speech but there's nobody on the other end. Who could understand what he's asking for by you know but that's that in itself the sitting the the idea of being caught but pretending to be on the phone on hold could burn at least forty five minutes well. He wasn't pretending to be on the phone. He said he'd already called them. They don't have any answers. Bob Blah so then I so then he hands me. The brochure hands me the instructions with the that circled. And then I go down this God damn rabbit hole of I get on the phone with Matt. I Tell Matt I I go see in the back of the shop. I'm like if we have any brackets brackets. I've got a wall. Mount we start talking about brackets. Were Awhile then I Call Matt. I'm like Hey Matt you ordered sink and it didn't come with a mounting bracket and God damn it I hate it when they sell you something and it doesn't come with a part and they don't. I don't mind when they sell it separately but when you're ordering the sink they have to tell you it doesn't come with a mounting bracket and I'm talking to man. I'm like why the fuck wouldn't come with the mounting bracket like in the box. It's it's the only way you could hang this sink on the walls as bracket it's it's pieces sheet metal or medium grade thickness metal. It's it's about ten inches wide and two inches tall. It's a fifty cent item like. Why wouldn't come to? And so I got mad on the blower Matt's calling the place and Matt's on Law. I'm looking this shit up and a certain point and by the way there's drama there too because Matt is in the middle of trying to create his Cinco de Maya recipe for his Margaritas knee-deep and GUAC and rock salt. And he's guy can you the blender going in the best really sleeves or getting into all barely going into the blender and so and I I gotTa Give Matt. That speech was like. Hey if you're going to buy one of these sinks you gotta ask them if it comes with everything 'cause he's idiots are too dumb to tell you to get the stupid mounting bracket now. We've gotta find the mounting bracket and Blah Blah Blah. And at some point Matt gets back to me he goes Looks like the mounting bracket comes with the sink. And I'm like Oh yeah kind of says it on. The instructions are in English and Spanish by the way and then I go. It comes with it. And then he's like yeah comes with it. And then I B because I'm sane because I'm saying I go well. Ozzy probably opened the first box. And it didn't have it in there. Maybe but open the second box and see it's in there just opens a box in there. So here's what I'm saying. I Guess Matt and my screwing this thing up or not. Yes that is one hundred percent. True Ozzy. Yeah he's he's a character. The the box is twenty two inches by twenty two inches and it's seven inches deep. Like I don't know how you could miss the mounting bracket when you open the box. Hey Matt was did also say on the instructions in English and Spanish that comes with the bracket a definitely sit on the website. You know as soon as you said there weren't didn't come with the law. The first thing I did was look at the item details online and sure enough. They have a little column. That has little check marks of what it comes with what it doesn't come with. So for example does not come with the Faucet but it does come with the mounting. And then did ozzy just find did. Or how did that work so? I texted Ozzy per year instructions. You know can you please open the box in if the wall mouser there and then he texted me and I quote yeah the odor have of the parts takes all right so doing now down one bracket or they in both boxes. You'd have to ask the person who is on the site. I have absolutely no idea. So but what do you? You're going to have to send ozzy another one which is obviously open a box and says there's no bracket in the box then. He opens the other box told him they opened the other box. And now there is a bracket in the other box. So you've gotTa send him another tax. It should be fun asked him. Did we not was there? No bracket in the box or because that's what we have to decipher and do dance. Do you think ozzy can read and Spanish? His Lang? His native language is he's Nicaraguan. Okay Carlos Mencia. The comedian is Nicaraguan. One time we said to Carlos Mencia to talked to ozzy to interpret for us or something. Yeah Carlos Men Steve said. I have no idea what this guy what language he ozzy my he could be. Croatian no spent he's Nicaraguan evidently people from his homeland. Don't understand what he's saying either all right and he he likes it. I know he likes it because when I show up. And he's not doing anything and I go. What are you doing because they obey dad and I fuck it. I'm leaving ozzy might have special needs. And we don't know it and we assumed it was a language barrier there. It's it it's it's very possible because Ozzy's English is exactly as it was twenty five years ago when I met Ozzy right exactly. Begs the question when you when you arrive in this fine land. Is it on you to learn the language to make transition easier? I would I would safely say see. Well there's a lot of people that don't want the English only a lot of politicians talk about how it's discriminatory and Blah Blah Blah but ultimately if you don't speak the language tough to get on in the in the country you're in so and if I know and the guy that has worked for me in the past for so many years is really actively trying to get better and learn the language and I told him you know this is how you can interface with the rich class on the west side. It makes a huge difference for you is what he's doing it right actively doing anything. That's Ozzie Ozzie. Saying all right so we just wait because man may have missed. It was mad indeed wearing the puffy shirt and making the Margaritas yesterday when the whole thing transpired his back put. He's back without a loss of connects. Quick Thinking let's answer some questions. Shall we do that? Yeah What do you got matt or Gary or whomever well? I'm not sure if Matt's around so I will take over here. We have a video question If you give me the slightest moment here I will pull up the name of the gentleman. It looks like Matt is having difficulty with his connection. Correct so what we have. Here is a video question from Francisco and this is a three part video question. And they're all in the same room but the topics are slightly different and it was a little long. So what we're GONNA do here today. Is I have broken it up into three different videos and you will. You will be able to tackle one question at a time so let's start here with Francisco's first video question as man stromer. Get it on Eric. I've got some hot tile related. Talk for you. I am thinking about ripping out this shower Tub Combo and was going to use the Kirti Board. Which is made by? Schlueter as to do all the surround waterproof and I think it's pretty effective from what I've seen. One thing I had a question about was looking at the old contractors. Were they have a pretty thick a gap between the wall and the tile here and then as you go down and shouldn't get pretty flush so I don't know if that was their attempt to plumb the wall but what do you recommend I do to avoid this same? Look I've heard wet shimmying study before I put the board on would be good but we love your your recommendation all right. Paul are second all right so you got this thing where you WanNa make tile on the wall plum but the wall is in plum so now when you get to the edge of the tile your inch in an eight at the top and you go down to half an inch at the bottom and it's not a fantastic luck I would be. I would bring back the drywall. You know another half two feet from the shower toward the door and re sham all the studs and make them at least start the transition to plum and then make your shower around plum as crazy you again because when you're using the board it's all specifically one size and you can't ask air and float randomly tiles as you're going up the wall round don't Ya. Yeah I have grafted onto studs before first things first. The Wall isn't that big the bathrooms not that big strip the whole Goddamn Wall right at get it down to the bare starts right. And it's the wall where the spigot goes in the shower head goes get it down to the bare stutz. Then throw four foot. Level are six. What level on those starts and don't forget? I'm sorry to interrupt but don't forget when you're doing the plumbing of your studs also you gotta go horizontally and make sure stuff. Isn't poking out further than the one before it. So you can use mounds in wall. So it's it's both directions up and across go ahead now if you WANNA for out a stud. There's three ways you can do it in my mind. If you're out by three quarters of an inch at the top you can take a piece of one by three go horizontally just the way across the top. That's a great idea. And then go down to half inch in the middle horizontally all the way across or or of space it out a little bit and and make sure that you hit with your. Drywall boast those strips you put across is they'll suck in. Obviously obviously we're GONNA need some screwing for the drywall. But that that's a faster way to plum out every single every single stud Other way to do it the difficult way to do it is to pretty much. Put a level on each stud and go okay. I'm going to rip the tough. Kat Rip a one inch two zero of two by four and just surface mount that like right right to it that that takes a little bit of skill in the skill saw operation department. Yeah and usually WANNA cut off of two by six because you've got more meat to work with a little more room sometimes if you're lucky and I've done it this way to I've also done those cuts free handed on a table. Saw literally just free hand. It's a little. Tricky takes a little experience. The other way to do it is you. Just go ahead and get two by fours. Cut Him to lank and sister them onto the side of it and use timber screws framing decking screws side. Screw it just just put it next to it. You know I if in fact there's no plumbing or electoral blocking your whatever you have to work around that but you'll just take the studs and shift them all over an inch and a half and put them to the side of it and you know you could literally just put it next to it and threw it through screw it now putting notching or not whatever and that's a pretty straightforward way to do it and if you do that which. I like as well make sure you run a lie a string line from your far wall on the right all the way across at the point where the the two by fours are going to be coming out from the wall so that those lines are all those two by fours are all coming out the same exact he out from the wall the first things first thraw couple of strings on there really get them where you wanna go top and bottom have that ending point top and bottom of cassette wall could be out plum which it is but it could also Bo in a little bit or bulge out a little bit. You know what I mean. Get THAT FINISHED. String going all the way across top and bottom go go meet it and then also keep keep in mind too. When you return on in your shower enclosure you may or may not be square. That wall may not end up being square because it looks like nothing is square in that house. So don't be concerned if you put a you know a a a right angle on that corner and it's not square as long as the walls flat. You won't read that in the AL in echina- not all right. So what's the next question? Gary all right. So here's part two from France Cisco Second Question I have for you guys is. I have this shower valve which is pretty seized up. I can't turn off the water at at the valve and it's not able to turn so I'm wondering is this just know. Read this out in getting a new one. Is there anything worth saving in here? I'm pretty sure way because I mean let's check real quick so from this from this angle. We can see that what they did is they just went over the existing drywall and made the tiled installation on top of the. Drywall doesn't even look like Green. Board does no it. Doesn't it just looks like drywall. That's that's crazy. Get IT OUT. Get it all out. It makes you discuss drummer. You disgust me tile man man who bleeds grout a combs hair the not strath. That's thank you I'm trying. I'm crying tears of sealer tiers of sealer. A man doesn't use a towel but uses a sponge trowel or a free sponge trout often when he steps out of shower. You mean for dabbing for dabbing right all right so this is bad. Get it all out. We got that part figured out The vowel the shower vow in new is easier. I I don't know you can give stuff a shot of penetrating oil. The have liquid ranch and things like that You can penetrate it let it. Let's soak overnight. You know tap on it a little bit seavy can free things up. See how it works but this I would just start fresh with this. Yeah a valve at a big box stores. Like one hundred twenty dollars you know. Just get another one over All right sorry. Go ahead Gary all right. So I guess we'll move onto part three from France Cisco here and that is right here and then the third thing I had was. I've been just testing this for a leak and I've got this stoppers here. I turn it on filled. The TUB and over a few hours leaked out. I'm not sure if that means I have a leak around the edge with like all plumber's putty or is it. Just the stoppers not so watertight. I'm above the garage but the garage is finished so I can't really get into the plumbing. So do you think I need to rip this tub out and check the plumbing before I go and Redo all the tile or is there a simpler way to make sure? I'm not leaking water thinking. Oh much get it out. Not The top you can keep the tub drain out and do a new assembly. Because if you're gonNA open everything up to do what we've just said you should do. You can reach behind. Get all that and have access. Once the walls out get start over get a new drain. Drain Assembly I find. Adam what do you think is I messed around with adjusting them and unscrewing a making them longer and shore? It just wants. It's Kinda done it's done. In my opinion it's probably leaking through the the Stop Arts old old takes a couple hours to get down so that's not bad. I mean you can take a bath and being there for half an hour and make it. They also make those thin rubber just stoppers. The thin kind of ones that look like a little saucer that they're like patterns or like daisies patterns that you put over the drain. I think you're thinking of the no skid maybe by but you know there's that if you can access it access it and you know when you tear out the wall see your access is Start tearing everything out and and see what you can see what you can get to and not get too. I'm I'm I'm not as worried about the stoppers. I am about the tile and the wall and the hardy backer the schlueter stuff you're gonNA put back there in the new the new valve and then also can we just give them a little demo advice. When you're when you're re- ripping all the walls out for the shower put a painter's tarp in the tub and then cover the top of the tug with blue tape then put a piece of plywood on top of the job just so that when all this shit falls onto the TUB. It's on the plywood and it's easier than slide that into a garbage can to remove it as you go all let me hit Zegers eaters site solutions around one.

What Matt Status? It does look like he's on here. I was literally just on the phone with Ozzy Right now. Who ignored our question about the mounting plate in his now. I don't know exactly what ace. But claiming that the faucet that you guys picked up that somebody took parts out of the box in its missing arts and now he's once again talking about a manual sending me a picture of it right. Now wait a minute. Oh my God you guys I understand this. I'm just watching. The News and icy ozzy driving on a slow speed chase waving what looks to be some sort of mounting bracket and giving the finger orders. I'm sharing with you guys right now. That that he sent me it is upside down. I don't know how to flip it. Here he's impossible to understand. I mean he just talking about the manual and the Faucet and I'll send you a picture in time completely ignored everything about the other mounting bracket. So were what did you. How did you ask the question? Adam is asking. Was there no bracket in the first box? Are we missing one bracket still right to which he responded? I do a that's correct. That's GonNa take approximately what he said to me. Send him another picture. And we'll see what he set now. Re-send him that tax and see what he says. Yes it's tough. You can't communicate with him but listen. I have a question for you because I have done this in my life as well and I wonder if you have P do you. Do you think you cast people in your life because you have a need to have them there for some reason to exercise the analysis or the idea of China help somebody along or you just need that person's representation out in the real world to reflect off of who you are as a person. Well I understand what you're saying and I do like to be introspective and think about things like what is my part. Yes what part of my plan. But I think Matt would back Yup. Which is I realized. Ozzy didn't work a long time ago and I got rid of it. And then he stopped me. He stopped me. He literally styling. I kept putting them off and I kept winning mov them off and he finally like pin me down and I felt so bad for him. I just said fine. I will employees you but I yelled at him twenty five times. You have to work. I can't do it the way is there ever with has there were. Is there ever wisdom that comes unexpectedly from Your interactions with Ozzy? Coming from him does wisdom ever show up. No skirting amount of entertainment. That goes along this. They're also has it. Here's what I'm saying. I remember many has it it. Here's the question should be asking. Has It ever worked out? Yes that is when you're when you're talking to someone in your going listen to me. This intimate have to do this. I cannot tolerate. Has that ever worked out. I will tell you when my nephew came to work for me about two weeks in. I like pull them aside and I said you need to get your Shit together. I will fire you. If you do not get your shit together you have an opportunity here but you have to get your shit together. That ended up with him. You know riding us a letter telling US f ourselves and quit like never eat. Never works when I was when I was like twenty eight. I had a Catholic little brother did. Oh you mean like assigned hugh assigned to me. Okay Gotcha right. I was part of the Catholic big brother. That's Kinda sweet. Why'd you do that? You just wanted to support people. I've got in Helmet Lane. That looks like an idea picture me. Yeah what happened to that kid side from all the sexual harassment? Garriga says I shouldn't talk about it. I don't know we're trying to run nate down. We we don't we don't know where he is. I don't know where he is. He came and visited me. So even even from that age you showed you have a big heart grumble and and you bemoan all this shit. I think you have a sweet big heart. That is trying to help people. So they're well. Thank you so fuck you man I do. I do try to help people but only those who help themselves so I was a Catholic big brother and I met my guy I was like twenty seven and he was like I dunno thirteen now he was probably eleven or twelve when I met him I had him for a couple of years and I the reason I did it is because I was in an Improv troupe. With a guy named Paul and Paul's wife Mara worked for a period of time with the Catholic Big Brother Organization of Southern California Los Angeles. So we would go and perform their Christmas show. We do performances for the Christmas show and stuff like that for the Catholic big brother. Oh you mean Improv troupe would perform yes I gotcha and so a certain point she she. I guess she would say like a big brother. You should be big brother you know. And so that's why I became a big brother. I didn't I didn't open the phone book and go look up Catholic but you could have easily passed when she suggested it. That's Tro so I I did sign up to be a big brother. And when when your big brother you the commitment you have to do some evaluation and interviews and stuff like that but the commitment is like every weekend for the first year and then after that you can be a little more intermittent but you can't be flaky. So this guy's got to be in his mid twenties now I you know a one. I laughed when he basically I just turned eighteen. Like aged out of it and I was probably only thirty one thirty two or something when he wasn't that much older than he was. I mean you know. Relatively in twenty eight he was fourteen or something like that. They so he doesn't reach out to you at some point and acknowledged this. I think we should hunt him. Down and tar and feathering. Because I mean that's come on man. That's amazing did that well. I didn't have that much to offer at the time because I was pretty poor but I we we went to the beach. We go to Taco Bell. We got a magic mountain. It's yeah go to the next and stuff like that and The picture you saw was like the big brother Picnic or something that they've every once in a while anyway I at some point. He met a girl online. Wasn't much of a ladies man but he he met a girl online and this is getting back to the message for today. Okay I he wanted to call this girl who's like in Kentucky and this is back in the day I mean this is nine thousand nine hundred ninety three nineteen ninety four and he wanted to talk to this girl and I said he said his mom won't let him use the phone because his mom didn't have any money the call to Kentucky was expensive and Blah Blah Blah. He said I should okay. I'll tell you what nate I'm GonNa let you use my calling card remember. They had calling cards vary day. I'M GONNA now. Meanwhile I wasn't making any money I was living in a house and lie locker sent With two dudes it was three of US renting a house with no air condition. No heat or anything. Just ranch style. US up in the foothills and I was working as it was like Chris Chris at that or somebody else. I was with Ralph and Portland. Okay I don't think I know those guys go ahead. Ralph went on to rock. Ralph Garman Karaoke. And Courtney Cox went on to be producer below deck. I think what he what he works on amongst other things anyway. So we're all just live in that house. I didn't have any money driving Zuzu trooper. I was working teaching boxing. Classes is making like literally twenty bucks a class and then I was doing carpentry in the afternoons. I have much money or much going on but I had this call and cart and I would say to the nate. This is where it's all coming full circle lasy. I said to nate nate. I'm GonNa let you use my calling card to call your honey bunny in Kentucky and then I paused and I said now listen to me. Listen to me. You'RE GONNA use it sparingly. You'RE GONNA USE IT. You can use it everyday. Talk for five minutes and then cut yourself off. You can't just keep going on it and you're going to use it you're gonNA talk to your new. Gal and you're GONNA pay me back for the Mount that you rack up calls to Kentucky all right. He worked at like the snack shack at the school or something like that. He made four bucks an hour. I said I'm going to keep track. We'll get my statement at the end of the month. I'M GONNA keep track of it all the calls the Kentucky. I'm going to add those up. You got to reimburse me so you can have a scarred I trust us his car do not overuse discard we get to. The end of the month was four hundred dollars. You don't have that kind of money. I don't have that kind of money either. So use it sparingly use it responsibly. And you can use it and I. I gave him the card and then two weeks later my phone was cut off a new. Some new. This was this is back when people at home phones am. I have cell phone. My home phone was cut off and I was like what the F. and I walked I went into like. At and he is Burbank and waited in line. And they're like. Oh Yeah we cut your phone off and like. Aren't you supposed to send me one of those warning letters? It says you're late with your bill. You need to pay your bill. I've seen those late bell things a whole bunch of times in my life. You get a little heads up. They give you a little more as they're like. The activity you ran up on your card was so fast that we just cut it. So where were they? Were the calls too or was it all Kentucky. What do you think stromer? Oh God all Kentucky of course my God. How much do you think he spent a back then? Three hundred two hundred and fifty three hundred bucks. It was Stuart fifty or three hundred bucks. I didn't have. It was two hundred and fifty bucks. He didn't have and my point when I have conversations with people such as Ozzy saying hey man I will hire you back but you have to work. You cannot do what you normally do. I can walk in there and see you shuffling papers all that you have to work you have to. It never works no. It just doesn't work then I was Gonna say to you like. Did anybody ever have to say that to you? Now right you were never said by somebody. You gotTa Hustle War now. Do you know how many times I say out loud to either Matt. The Person Punisher find a lear or Mattie Andrea if somebody said to me if somebody's spoke to me the way I speak to other people like when I get sing song and I go. Hey I'm GONNA ask every single week for this. This isn't GONNA end row. You better be prepared. I'm GonNa say this all you know. Seven o'clock means seven. O'cl act it doesn't mean some y'all hire you but you have to work right companion. Put a pistol in my mouth. I was GONNA fucking pistol my mouth halfway into their discussion and just blow my head off. I I couldn't imagine I have conversations. People Super Sings like. Hey Man I'm gonNA keep asking for a so. It's not going to go away so you gotta be prepared like I have that. All I do is talk to people that way. I don't know why they're impervious do it. But I guess that's how you get to where you are. Yeah and you know if you don't recognize a potential mentor. Then you have no. You don't deserve the mentorship. You don't all right Matt. Did we find out anything about Ozzy in the mounting play? Yep so he is claiming a bracket and screws are missing which means to professionally packaged items from Lowe's and one professionally package from Home Depot. He's claiming two of those. Three boxes are currently missing parts which that is a conspiracy. If ever I've heard one well it it can happen that people take it out verse stuff in Boxes. I it can happen the thing about. Here's thing about Ozzy. You'd never know 'cause he wants it to happen like he wants to take a ticket admission thing and then he's gotta go the hardware store then he's gotta get on the phone that he's got to go on the website and it's like my thing is. I put it aside. Go to something else than but handle this later. I I hear you all right as you know from my research lows does not sell the bracket on its own. I found another random hardware site that might have something. But I'm your guess is as if that's GONNA fit. I'm at a way. Where did the good news is Sean? At the other shops a world class fabricator go there. You GotTa Lead Jack that thing out if we had to buy. Here's the whole thing. This is the other thing that people never quite get it stromer. You probably live this. If this is coming from Sean if Shan says to me I opened the box it was missing bracket were short one bracket. I go okay. We're down if Ozzy says it go all right hold on. I'm coming over there. It's three hours. And he's Oh is fully successfully executed his plan to perfection. If this happens right they get you sucked up in confusion vortex. Now you do a lot of. I'm coming over there. Yeah you know how many I mean. Well look no further than that young. Kaelin from last week. Remember the Green Ball all right. Let's see one more emails question per we? We do have an email question and if it wasn't already stated please email us ace on the house. Adam COROLLA DOT com. There's no pictures for this one. Shurmur on twenty seven in closing on my third house build than Tasneem is Rodney. The whole first floor tile and of course tile in the bathrooms and showers. The builder won't seal the GROUT lives. My question is it seems like there are tons of different sealer products that vary price from fifteen to over one hundred dollars. What product should I be getting? Is there any techniques and applying? I should know about last time I tried this. The grout lines didn't seem to be sealed at all and again. That's from Rodney in San Antonio. I don't know why the contractor won't seal the crowd but really. It's not a big job. I mean it's literally like you get a gallon of sealer. Customs makes a good product. You put it on an with a sponge and you just rub the lines. It'll take somebody if it's a huge twenty two hundred square foot footprint of a house. It'll take half a day maybe so you WanNa do you mind by the way. If it's a point of contention with a sale and it's going to get weird then just you do it who cares. It's four hours of your life. Do they have sealers with sponge? Applic- applicators that are built in like shoe Polish. Yeah they make like they make a role. It's like a rolling foam applicator. That goes in smaller joints. But if it's a big three sixteenths joint. It's not going to do it. It's better to just use a hydra sponge and a bucket. Poor the sealer in it and have at it. How often should you know I don't? There is something that people don't understand like if you have a stone counter that counter needs to be sealed but it also needs to be resealed periodically which I think people dropped the ball on. Yeah I think once every year is fine and again. That's when it stone it's really easy. Make sure if you have a glossy stone polished surface. Don't use glossy sealer You know what I mean just and if you have a honed surface don't use glossy sealer. You gotTa always use just the neutral so it just looks like water because it'll show up in mess with finishes on on each of those products. Good Advice Stromer.

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:00:03 hr | 1 d ago

"Why are you shopping here?"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. Tired and yet, very beautiful taste in women's clothing. My Mother's clothing was always quite nice. The terrible taste in men's vogue. He was one of those guys were straps with plants. There's one of those guys award like the same t shirt nine days in a row filthy disgusting. My father. How can this be? How can you? How can you wear this this as I would go down to his apartment and slam twenty on the table and say turn the air conditioning. was just. So. Hot. The Tony Kornheiser show is on now. This is why I have windows open in my house even when it's twenty degrees outside, just I don't like it when it's too hot though your house gets warmer every single year and faintly smells like old hallmark channel. Yeah and yeah. But I don't that's not my doing I'm running around trying to correct that I'm trying to be the anti-kremlin in this whole. Gazebo. God Michael is here six feet one inches apart properly social distance. I I guess I should start by saying that I did not watch not one minute. I. Did Not Watch one second of the debate I. Voted Last week by mail I assume it will be counted. I am not undecided I. Know what I'm going to do I didn't WanNa Watch it because. It does not bring out the best in us. It doesn't. So I did not watch a second of. Michael You did you Watch fifteen twenty minutes? No. I watched the first hour I wanted to see foot what it was like with the around the Horn Mute Button your frankly given that you PTI your anniversary Yom I sorta figured you have reality just sorta come out of nowhere throw the crinkled up piece of paper at the end of it so So yesterday was the anniversary we have now done nineteen full years on PTI, nineteen full years which is Remarkable on television to do the same show. Even if nobody's watching like nobody, it's still remarkable to do nineteen full years and I did. I was unaware of it if you would ask me. How many years have you done? I knew the amount of years. But if you ask me what was the anniversary date I actually thought it was in September. I thought we started about two weeks after nine eleven. We didn't. We obviously started in mid to late but. Doing the prep shows why don't even remember prep shows I, just thought we went on the air in other words. The official history of the is show I don't contribute to that because I don't. I, don't get the dates right? I don't remember anything about it. I remember saying to many people it wasn't going to last more than a couple of months I do remember the the target number for the show was in terms of ratings. If it gets, it'll be ahead. Yeah I do point three. was point three. The show that we replaced was the Roy firestone interview show that had been on probably for twenty years as well. and that was just you know it. Everybody got tired of that including Roy firestone I believe although Roy firestone and I are not close. So they told us if you had a point three you good 'cause that's what he got a point three. You get a point for your ahead. Then I added the line. If you got a point, five will carry around on chairs. Within the within a year, we were getting a point a to a one. So we were hit. And and I'm the most surprise will says, he's never surprised maybe he wasn't but I was the most surprised person on earth because I as I've said, many times, we had two years guaranteed and the third year at the option of ESPN. And I never I was just happy with two years guaranteed. I didn't quit my job at the post Mike didn't quit his job at the post we never thought it would work out. So it's all this many years and And it is. Now for me, it's actually a career. It's an unexpected. It's an unsought I'm very grateful for it, but it's actually twenty years. You'd say that's a full career. In the minds of most people. Not only am I not a newspaper Sportswriter I never was in the minds of most people I've been on TV, and that's what I've done is been on TV and maybe they know about the radio and maybe they know about this podcast but it's mostly television I got very nice messages yesterday very nice from among other people my friend Anthony Black who works for Delta. Airlines from Jimmy Crowley from Scott Sadler, who I played golf with from Pablo Tori from Luke Russet from Mike Rizzo and I got a phone call and a nice charming phone call from Scott Van Pelt. WE CHATTED FOR ABOUT FIFTEEN MINUTES So you know how long I going to do it? Well, as I said to somebody yesterday. To Bill Hoff famer when he wrote he, he was the first person to inform he works in public relations at. ESPN, he was the first person to inform me that it was nineteen years. I. Wrote How got I was going to retire today so I guess just retired tomorrow it'll make it easier. And he said, well, you can't retire nuts. But I mean I do I do think about it. I do think I'm old I'm seventy two years old I do think about Michael this is like. This has been going on essentially adult life. Yeah. Your entire. Mentioned how long it's been I went to college where the show had been on for enough years where it was you engine college in two thousand and four thousand force and we've been on, you're going down dormitories where people would come back. It was appointment viewing, and now you look at this your grandson read came to your house last week and went home and was in disbelief when we turned on PTI and he just looks like Grandpa Tony. Yeah see here. Yeah. No one you you look at this perfect storm where the style of your show you you you would never have considered yourself a TV person nor neither would Mike. But the way they're newspaper sports writers away that afternoon sports programming was evolving which you guys started the way that dvr was coming into its own, which was the the perfect device to capture that made late afternoon show for when you got home from work, and then really when when social media started. Taking off a decade into your show people were actually interested and wanting that smart dialogue I was reading some of the comments on the instagram yesterday and and people were just so grateful that you're not just another TMZ shouting show at each other or even when he do disagree and sometimes that's just for the show the disagreements but you're willing to engage in you're willing to to meet across difference. It's impossible not to to realize how important that is in this year. Yeah I you know. I'm I'm that's nice and I agree with all of that. It never gets tiresome. It's tiring once in a while, but it's never tiresome. I love doing it I love Wilpon. I love the fact that unlike other shows we'll bond can say something and I can literally roll my eyes roll, my head and go what are you talking about and that's good. You know we can do that to each other and he'll yell and scream I don't care about your statistics junk. Go, these are not statistics facts statistics. So that relationship is is good. There's not there's not an upper hand to that relationship. There are a lot of shows where there's an upper hand that that doesn't exist with us. We've been doing years you work together at the post winning when he was the intern twenty well, he was only intern for a year I mean he was hired the moment. Got There. Everybody knew he was really good. So I got there in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, he was in the summer he was an intern in nineteen seventy-nine hired full time when he graduated in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. So we worked you know twenty years together before we ever did this and I used to make fun of him when I was writing columns is to call Mike that toddler town wilpon and he always had a good spirit about all of that and we became pals and and now we have this incredibly long lasting career and. Then now, the only question is, when do we get out when do we get out but thank you to the people who've liked the show and? And who wrote and and said Nice things. I had one small thing to say Niger. You're involved in this are Powell Wendy Rieger I was. I was utterly unaware of this Wendy. Rieger had revealed a few days ago that she'd had open heart surgery. I think it was valve surgery, right? I don't know the details of it and she's going to go on television. She's going to go on television yesterday to talk about it and I started to watch but I stopped I, stopped watching because it wasn't her it was during talking about when you Rieger and I knew I had to take the dog out and I didn't have a lot of time. About it but I guess she's I guess she's well when I found out about it and I was utterly unaware I left a message on her phone and I did not I didn't expect her to either get it or you know respond to it and she has not responded to it. But one of the things I said was I bet you were the prettiest girl in the or that day and I did say that. You talked to her or you texted her Nigel Yeah texting back and forth I would. Say Hey I go through you do all right recovering she said thank you, Tony. Left great message on my phone. Love. Love you guys. So and she's she's out in her palatial spot in Rapahannock rapahannock rabbit Hammock rapahannock county. and. You know she's out there where her furniture's perfect. My God I mean she sits in the furniture. You just say, well, that was that's so well decorated I. Look at my own house. I just shudder at how often. and. How lived in it looks and like I know that like this is ready to move out is to reactions of people have when they see me one lately as if they know me they. Oh, my God, you're thin. Are you ill you dying and the second? Is You live like this? This, it's changed. You live where now it's you live like this. He lives like this I'm. I'm I've provided enough money for my children. I'd really like to live nicer. I'd like to live in something that looks a little bit nicer. MEMBER HEX I know yeah.

The dodgers have to be Charlie Morton and Charlie Morton his unhittable in the postseason he's like the third best postseason pitcher in office no to what the fourth or fifth didn't get. To lift.

This is sent to us by Kris Van Valkenburgh who writes what's the difference between a trampoline a Banjo you take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline. My friend Brennan Shafer Been Honing his claw hammer technique in his put out several albums. He has emailed you to get permission plays music on the PODCAST I? Think you guys are really liking. This is called Louisville Burglar. This is playing in Jason Lockenfora Banjos Great. It's the most distinctive sounding instruments just absolutely great Jason joins us now I'll just start with this because it's local for you and I know on your radio show you probably had to talk about this that Dez Bryant is actually going to join the Baltimore Ravens is that is that a real fact that this point it it's trending in that direction as we speak right now it's not official, but he's back in town they're giving him another look see. and remember they worked them out Geez tone probably to. Go. Yeah. Tees and. and. At that point you know. It wasn't no one was was blown away He looked like a guy who could still play in the league but how much of a difference maker right and we drafted a couple of receivers Boykin going into his second year we're going to keep him starting for now and you know what? Stay in touch and see where things go. Well, they badly need another. Element in the passing game besides mark. Andrews their tight in in Hollywood brown the there one receiver really can get downfield And I don't I don't think that this does move if they do it. precludes them from doing something else at the wide receiver position they're exploring a bunch of different trade options but the thing about the expanded practice squads is now it just gives you a lot of flexibility. You can stash a veteran there you can work them out and practice with them. For two or three, four weeks whatever it takes, and then you know at a certain point, you feel like he's comfortable with you know parts of your playbook. Are you think he's better than what you have in these packages are those formations. Then you can kinda you know, start bleeding them into your offense and and see where he fits at this stage of his career. I. Think he's more of A. A tight end type than he is really a guy who's going to win twenty, thirty, forty yards downfield I. Don't think he's GonNa hit guys with double. Moose but he can make contested catches. He could be an interesting target for Lamar in the red zone he could probably still high point the ball he knows how to box out he knows how to use. He can win hand fights. He's always been a strong physical guy, and one thing he's always liked to do is get down and dirty blocking. Well, these guys run the ball a lot and they expect a lot out of their receivers blocking for the running backs in their quarterback. So I you know is he going to be a game? Changer I don't think. So the other thing he provides this team is incredibly young besides Mark Andrews, pretty much. The entire offense is on their first contract they're all twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, five years old Willie snead is like twenty seven. He's the elder statesmen I like Willie snead a lot. He doesn't have an NFL resume. That's GonNa Command. I think part of this move is getting somebody in there with a different energy with a different set of experiences at a different point in his career and chains that that that vibe up a little bit to bring another sort of dog into that group who's done some stuff in this league 'cause the Guy Ingram and it looks like he's being phased out in the run game. I will say this that for people who want small numbers on this Baltimore with the explosive offense that they have, they have seven touchdowns from the tight end position. They have only two in six games only two from wide receiver. They also worked out Antonio. Brown. Not officially but Lamar Jackson worked with Antonio Brown and his cousin Hollywood Brown don't tell me. You'RE GONNA look at him to. I if they make the move official I don't I. Don't know why they would. You know really spend any more energy on Antonio Brown bringing both those guys in with really sort of shock the system and trump yeah. I would be that would be a shocker to me but like. Do I think they asked about Adam stealing when they inquired quite absa bleep and Lutely do I think they'll sniff around on Golden Tate on Marvin Jones maybe Bouchard Perriman with the jets who isn't a big name but is a true burner who they drafted in the first round twenty fifteen. It didn't work out here but he looked good in Cleveland for a minute. He looked very good in Tampa Yeah. I know that they are being very proactive and seeing what else they could do. At that position. Let. Me Get to a couple of things that happened last week that surprised me just by the margins, Arizona. Kill. Dallas ran two, hundred, sixty yards on them. Tampa Bay killed Green Bay ran all over them I. mean this is to me. This was very those games were very surprising. Should I be surprised? I think the nature by which Green Bay lost and and the quarterback really I mean they got the early lead, which is what they're all about and Aaron Rodgers literally handed it back in two possession sequence that did that's we passes. That changed the tenor of the game and that allowed the bucks to settle into their offense and due to the packers what everybody wants to do the packers team seem to? Not Get there two games slow or through the scoreboard or through mismanagement you you run on them with any volume you can expose that defense i. mean it's there for the taking. If you WANNA, take it. If you WanNa go that route now when they're up fourteen nothing at the end of the first quarter, it's very easy to talk yourself out of it but. not a very good defense the pass rush which looked amazing last. September and October you know and it's it's dairy Smith impressment. Their productions way down. The overall pressures are down and they still can't stop the run and that's why I've always kind of looked at them with a little bit of a jaundiced eye because if they don't win the turnover battle and if they are trailing at half halftime I don't think they're gonNA come back with a whole lot of people the other Games really surprised me off thousands. The defense does nothing except occasionally. Get. Some saks like it's it's that's really all they seem to want to do you know. Mean all the Smith. My I don't know might mess around lead the league in sacks it's really not gonNA matter. How many of the SAX affected Games led to wins? It's kind of like what they on offense to hold lot of passing yards largely hollow because a lot of it was acquired after the game was in doubt and When they really need to play in the fourth quarter and close games, it's generally not there. Yeah. This leads me to something interesting the Philadelphia Eagles in their last two games. One against a good team didn't win were in a position to tie against Baltimore and last night there down a lot twenty, one ten, I think they're down or something like that and they win the game question wins looks terrible for three periods every single game and I know Wilbon hates him just thinks he's stinks to high heaven but the last two games in the fourth quarter Carson Wentz has been money. What do we make of that? I. Carson Wentz was really a one man army against the Ravens he could. They could not protect them and all you got hit sixteen times He got sacked the time they were starting. An offensive line that consisted you know, Kelsey and four guys who collectively I think have been eight NFL Games And he kept. Bombs a wet like he would find a match up he liked and they started going after Marcus Peters and he was taking an incredible amount of abuse to try to pick up chunk yardage and it kept working He makes huge plays with his legs. is this decision making still a little off? Yeah and and as part of it, the offensive line and a lack of protection. Yeah and there's a part of it him trying to do too much too often. Yes absolutely. But that's his football team they're going to run away with that division they have their by. They're coming. They're they're going to be as healthy as they've been in a long time erz still won't be back Sanders probably still won't be back but Jason Peters will and Dallas Qatar will, and that last night was sort of a preseason for a lot of these guys who have been hurt most of the year like the Sean Jackson hurt again. But they will have more options at the receiver position and some of the guys they have there are developing and Howie Roseman is maybe the most aggressive. GM in the NFL and he's going to trade for a linebacker or do something else to help that football team before the trade deadline. And I think that team finishes five hundred or above, and I don't think anybody else in that department. When's more than five games? that. Okay. Good good to know that by the way. The World Series Ratings were terrible the NBA playoff ratings terrible. The NHL player ratings were terrible. How have the NFL ratings been so far? The last Sunday windows have been pretty strong. You know even compared to recent years now across the board. I think things are a little down but everything's down and there've been some interesting studies just about overall sports consumption and where eyeballs are going and turning to because of the pandemic because of you know election that. Seems in. Feels like none other in recent history of this country Because, people are scrambling to figure out you know how can I work from home and how can I navigate my kids through school and some virtual and some are so I think if you view it through the prism of where we are right now and how different twenty twenty s many thing we've ever seen before. NFL is doing incredibly well, especially compared to other sports and it's still winning the night on Thursday night and Sunday night in many cases by wide margins is where it was in two thousand fifteen. No. But I don't know if we're ever going back there just because of how much the landscape has changed even just with technology between now and then and how many more people stream now and how many people are just consuming in different ways. I'd let me get to. A game this week that there's a fabulously interesting small statistic. Pittsburgh. Tennessee will play since the merger. This will be the sixth time that teams with records of five or better or playing against each other in the previous five games or in other words one, hundred percent time. The winner of that game went to the Super Bowl went to the super bowl when you look at Pittsburgh in Tennessee, do you see that? I mean I I don't think it's out of the question for those leads to represent the AFC City got to Baltimore. Yep Yep no doubt. But the titans now were were like over calendar year. With Ryan Tannehill at the helm, it is a robust big boy offense the running back picks up an extra fifty yards per game just by having tentacles presence there because you have to respect the downfield past game, you have to respect play action in a big way you have to worry about Aj Brown and these guys beating you for double moves and him putting on a dime. They they can score points and they can do it a lot of ways and it's not just you know ground and pound you although that that is you know ideally what Mike Gravel would like to do but I love the offense I'm still not sold on the defense but. There aren't too many teams that I that you know you feel like are truly balanced right now. The steelers might be as balanced as anybody. It looks like, David, Decastro they're all world guard is going to be back for this one and and he hasn't really played much football this year I'm interested to see that offensive line. They have got a little long in the tooth and some spots there and how that holds up but bet is looked very good. They need a secondary receiver to step up besides Klay pulled Juju Smith Schuster been a passenger Washington seems to catch a ball. You know every two or three weeks, but but that's really it. You see them show up at once blast play and then he hasn't no one else has really integrated regularly into the passing game and their defense they they lost you know. Their central nervous system, their Middle Linebacker Devin Bush. that. Tornadoes Yell you know next man up okay. This guy spleen I don't think he's possibly be close to the athlete. That Devon push was and the titans don't have their left tackle Lewan for the rest of the year start to affect them as the sample size grows. This'll be an old school game. You know they are to bare knuckle teams, I lean to? Pittsburgh. because. I do think there are a little more balanced and I have some issues with the titans defense but these teams are both legitimate and if either one. Messed around one a few games in January and got the Tampa I wouldn't be shocked. Okay, that's good. Jason Plug you plug your radio show as we always want you to do. Thank you.

He's fourteen thirteen in one. But I do have from Jim Flynn in Colebrook Connecticut this particular email Tony I have diagnosed Jeff Ma and he has what I found to be. TGI or temporary jets insanity. When he says quote I see value in the jets. If he does that again, I suggest you organize an intervention, your reaction to that just off the top. No jets with week Unfortunately. The that they don't seem to be very good. No. No, they aren't very good. That's they're the worst team in the league statistically and visually the worst. This this happened right and when this happened you, you will end up seeing value on the death I probably going to wait until. darnold comes back has flacco does not seem to be much more than a corpse so I'm probably staying away from them. Until they get darnold back but I think when Donald gets back there'll be some value on them actually. You liked Arnold obviously more than I. Do I think he's terrible I. Mean I, just think he's terrible. Will where do we stand on Wednesday? It's it's interesting. You would bring that up because we just had Jason Lockenfora on and we talked about wentz whence is terrible for three quarters. But in the fourth quarter, certainly of the last two games wins has been superman. So it's hard for me to be dismissive of wins. How that you? Know I I I you know the. Couple, of weeks ago, we talked you APP win debate. When do they pull the plug on winter when she and? My father said guys still have a ton of talent. I don't know what's going on like you said in the first three quarters of the game but certainly. That lasts throat of Boston Scott and the catch live. Insane. Yes he's five foot six. He's five six that you don't usually see that. All right. What kind of games do for us. We're going to take we're. GonNa. Fix game this week we're GONNA take, Dallas plus the one against Washington? Obviously, this is a pretty big reaction to what people saw on Monday night where. You know. Dolphin do not look like he had it the the cowboys not look like they had it and and they you know got blown out by Arizona. But. This opened dollars favored by three and his moved to Dallas. Now getting one I just think it's too many points I mean I don't know i Washington should be a favourite against Dallas in in any situation and I think dolphin will end up being fine I think people have the thought last last going into last week that he'd be fine and and I didn't really see that much to deter me I mean Zeke put the ball on the ground twice and in. Dallas. With defense was not great and Murray made a bunch of plays but I like Dallas Whistle one here. Okay. What else? I take the lions plus the two I. Think if you liked the lions maybe watched the game because it could go up but I liked Al Detroit plus the two against Atlanta. obviously Atlanta had a great game last week surprised everyone beating the vikings playing really well but Detroit has been a team they've walked to you know to good teams and they lost the to a Chicago team who's obviously than people think. But again, they had one and and they won their other two games against bad teams. So expect against the bad team and Lennon, they're gonNA win this game. You one with Detroit last week or the week before been on Detroit before one why? Jacksonville they dominate in that game and so yeah, it's definitely a team I'm looking to back right now. Okay next I'm GONNA take the Browns minus the three against Cincinnati Again, just like the testament to dislike makes too short. The bengals not being a very good team. and You know struggling bit offensively obviously people like for the only question here is, is Mayfield and his health. there are some concerns there but I I think this line to short hard to pass up taking Cleveland here. So yesterday on. We did a happy anniversary to a college game in which Mayfield mahomes played against each other and the offense was insane set records all over the place most combined yards by two teams most combined yards by two quarterbacks, Mahomes to it eighty eight times and gained seven, hundred, thirty, four yards, and then rushed for eighty five yards. It's like the greatest performance of all time at that point Mayfield was far better known. Mayfield had gone to Texas tech and left and had actually if I had the research right had hosted mahomes in his official visit to Texas Tech. I don't know that you even know this because it's outside of the bet, the process thing. But your sense of of how far mahomes has come and what you see mahomes when you watch him, what do you think? mean his skill set is insane like we've never seen a quarterback that's been able to make throw that he's been able to make and. You know I think. After his first year as started, there was just incredible. You know talk about him. I think the the interesting thing is we've had all these other quarterbacks coming into the league that have. That sort of athleticism but his accuracy and ability to buy time on plays and then make the throws. He makes I think he's the best quarterback in the league I would take him I would take him over Russell, which is which right now is probably the only the only person. That's close. Okay. What other games? New England minus one and a half over San Francisco this one's weird. New England opened. Over a field goal favorite, it's got all the way down to one and a half although New England looks like they're gonNa get a bunch of players back this week. some of the offensive linemen and some of the defensive players New England with terrible last week and yeah hopefully, there are many reasons for that like practice not not practicing. Practice Clare's San Francisco going to last week I mean last week you said they stumped and they but they beat the rams. Yeah, they played well against the rams, but they really just held on and that second half right the first half they kind of surprise them came out did a lot of you know they did a lot of sort of direction and tried to get to the edges with. tvos Samuel and get the ball to kill and so. I think in this game where they've got to travel all the way east and and you have a New England team that that you know like in this in this is sort of the ultimate. Fellow check era game versus Brady are game like in the. Radio, this would be shirt for sure be a game. The Patriots would dominate and bounce back. So without Brady and just spell checker they going to be able to do that to keep their pattern going. Okay, and what else you got. Two more I'm GonNa Take Jacksonville plus the seven and a half against. The chargers obviously Herbert's been great so far this year and and people have. High expectations. But he's still a rookie quarterback and and some announces is a fair amount of points for a team that doesn't seem. Ever be able to you know blow a team out or even keep their victory the team, the chargers because easily be what four and one right now but there one in four. and so giving seven and a half points to Jacksonville team, which is great. We talked about their hated them last week you thought they were slop. They, they are they. The point spreads is the great equalizer in seven and a half points is just too many points for the charges to be giving. Okay. What else and then finally we're just GONNA take the seahawks minus the three and a half against Arizona. Even, though Arizona had a great game against the cowboys. They actually did it all kind of on big plays. There's their success rate, which is something that people look at like the ability to basically convert third downs and have have play success. was very low and it was really just a big plays turnovers that made them dominate that game and I think it gets the Seattle, team? That has. The rest is is has value in Arizona Zoff a short week. I think this is this plays very well into Seattle hands to to win this game comfortably. died. So if people tune in Tibet the process, they can hear about this and college games as well or just Pro Games easily college and pro. I don't think they call it this week. 'cause we had a guest, but we do both typically. I was able yesterday to attack Wilpon on this thing to big ten and all of the moral superiority of the big ten about how they're going to protect all their students and now with the biggest outbreak of corona virus in the entire country, they're just GonNa dial in for the dollars and start their season again I knew you'd have been proud of that. Role curbs on only gonNA. Be Around for what November third the ones that wants to November thirteenth never we'll get to play right. Right. It's going to disappear. Thank. You Jeff. Jeff. Boys and girls. And again, the name of the podcast that he and Rufus p his bet the process I, have a little extra time I wanted to. Talk. About something that was in the paper today in the paper for me is the Washington. Post. The capital weather gang they usually pretty good right. Mike. Good. So Jason Salmonella wrote a piece in which he asked one, two, three, four, five, six, seven weather predictors. Go Pass Kip but jazz diplomat list seven people meteorologist I. Guess they're meteorologists what the outlook for snow would be in Washington now last year we had virtually no snow. We had less than an inch of accumulating snow and conversational snow you know. Yeah. So so great because it it really crushed Chuck Berry nothing that's no angels really check bell and crushed. Melissa. Malays can take your kids out in the snow. And all of that and made me happy. Because I don't like Snow I. Don't like to walk the dog in snow and fall and break a rib which has happened to me I don't like. It's personal. Yeah. I. Don't really like snow conversational attractive hallmark chance to Zibo. Snow is fine but shovel snow. No good. So, there's a guy named Joe Girardi who predicted ten inches, ten inches of snow, which I can live with Todd Crawford of the weather company which is owned by IBM predicted seven inches. This is all more than ten times what we got last year but not tariffs nothing though over the course of a three or four months periods, Cohen of atmospheric and environmental research predicted nine inches, Paul Dorian of perspective weather perspective whether this is scary, he predicted twenty point five inches any wrap around. Alberta Clippers they went point five inches saying many signs point to colder than normal conditions this winter across the northern us including the mid Atlantic region and the virtually snowless winter of last year is quite likely not going to repeat itself. Paul passed a lock from accuweather said, ten inches ten inches. I could probably live with ten mat rogers of the commodity weather group said ten inches well, and Dave tollerance of W. X. Risk. I don't know what that means. He predicted twenty two inches. Says it's a mistake for forecaster to solely rely on La Nina in their outlooks and that other factors support a snowy forecast. Notably, he says warm ocean temperatures offshore in the Pacific northwest are quote dramatically different from anything I have seen over the last twenty years on quote if these warm weather warm waters persist. Tolerance expects a zone of high pressure to build over the western united. States which would cause the jet stream to dive south and east quote. This would favor below normal temperatures and a stormy weather pattern but with the La Nina, most of those storms still stay north of the mid Atlantic. Well, that's not what he's saying. He's saying it's GonNa I'm just saying what the experts will these guys are experts. So so Nigel, feel about this I mean everybody's predicting substantive snow though only two people are predicting crazy snow. Yeah. The guys Bronx. was going to be twenty two inches. I think may do that just to say. Hey, look at me. It's going to be a catastrophe this winter and the other I mean ten inches it makes me angry unlike you Conversational snow I wanted likely falling outside my window maybe gathering on the lawn and that's it don't on the road so. I don't want to come not allowed to shovel it middle caught little twelve years you on swear snow sweeps. What am I think I think with everything we've got to see what what the the model show for Kip and would sort of drawing close maybe maybe get him on the next. Month or so to get his accurate prediction for us but no I see in my crystal two inches or less that's what I'm predicting. Predictions of ten inches over the course of the entire Winston onto these are nothing. No. I want someone to say we're getting a blizzard. We're getting it here and now. Last week here for you for the boys, I would have gone I want one snow at least I can roll the hammer up into a little snowball and have his brother, push him around snowballs at them. But nothing that's GonNa actually nothing that's GONNA turn parking into on my street into more of a mess than what had already is are you going to come here and shovel me out? Well, I'm already here for set times a week. So yes, I, have a feeling I will that would be great all ice for you that would be early and often yeah be how We're good.

Let me get to some email here from will Shinsegi in Silver Spring Maryland I'm sure you've heard the famous Jackie Green joke about Sinatra. Remember we mentioned Jackie Green a couple of shows, but maybe some of your listeners haven't shaky used to tell this joke Frank Sinatra saved my life five guys were beating me up and I heard frank say that's enough. CECCHI said it was a two story and there were five guys Roland. Denny writes in I was working silver, Spring area Monday morning, and I noticed low flying helicopters. I was also curious what they were doing flying so low repeatedly do you think they could have been looking for the Naked Guy Walking. Along drug for you've got to be with his show a long time number way back from Gary Tuchman failure or Muck, and Fowler Maumee Ohio, your recent references to your at the turn payday bar brought to mind my father's forty year ritual of always sliding zag nut bar. In my golf bag whenever it was my honor and privilege to first caddy, then play golf with him. Until his passing I don't mind telling you that your simple references brought back an avalanche of memories of Golf, played and Zach nut bars shared at the turn with my hero while I also love payday bars the question remains what is the best non chocolate candy bar easy after forgetting to put a fresh bar in your bag for your first round of the year it's the one you find in your bag unopened from the previous year from me it will always be. Zag. Nut. From my dad from any, I played golf last Friday had to pay day bar the turn instead of my usual hot dog I was hitting the ball well on the front and continued to play well, enough to have my best round at twenty twenty payday bars will now be a staple at the turn and hot dogs will have to wait for fenway barbecues. I'm fifty eight years old when I turned fifty, there are parts of my body that I never paid attention to previously my eyebrows nose here here now growing like wildfire and require constant grooming about two. Years ago my feet went from size nine and a half to an eleven wide finding fashionable shoes that fit and don't make me look like an old man. With Velcro, straps uses as a challenge I heard about the great deal for the bass pro boaters on your show and they had eleven wides I ordered a pair I couldn't be happier until you sales guys contact the Hershey Company and G H. Bass. And sign them up show sponsors from Josh her he says attention Mr Anthony or when Kornheiser? Wow hurtful respectfully Josh Earth Executive Vp a ball quality pinnacle golf not. Really. From Al, Deluca in Griffin a few years ago I was playing golf with the customer in Evansville Indiana. It's a nice course but an old one, the lots of parallel hit my drive to the right one hole into the light rough as we were approaching the whole, the group playing the next all was departing from the general area of my ball. We could not find my ball needless to say we assumed they could not find their ball hit my bull two holes. Later we're on green getting ready to PUTT I've been down to mark my ball here thought I look up my customers on the ground. His head is bleeding and a ball is rolling to my feet. I pick up the ball and go to aid my customer. We stopped the bleeding we're headed for the hospital. When I look at the ball, it was my bowl. So not only did they hit my ball instead of theirs they proceeded to hit an errand shot with my ball and did not yet four to warn us to the uncoming shot incoming shot and hit my customer in the head with my ball. My customer was fine with a couple of stitches and he continued to buy from me. So all good you cannot make this stuff up. Ryan from Mercer Pennsylvania. So you had to play pinnacle instead of title list and was actually in Taylor. And millennial stole your ball. What a shame maybe Louise's glick could write a poem about it. And from Jeff Jenkins Gao F F and says asked Nigel how to pronounce it. I was sad into recently learn of your disdain for Geoffrey chaucer having been named after him. I've endured almost a half century of the butchering of my name by Americans and other. English speaking people particularly in the south. Now, I must endure the scorn of the host of my favorite podcast as well as yours. It is my sincere hope that you look the other way and acknowledge the greatness of the man is equal to Shakespeare. If he was the equal who's great I. Just I had some trouble with on Spencer. Not In that league. Not. In Italy from Mark Corriere, Korean Ellicott city. One of my favorite parts of the show is reginald a monkey picks over the last few weeks listening to you and Michael Sing Reginald's theme song I'm convinced that either you both have the worst possible rhythm ever or there's a pretty substantial tape delay in what you were hearing in. Singing you both off consistently by about two seconds singing the song. Sean. Is that true? A we delayed on that it's more like a half second bit. Yes. Wow I wish I, wish Oh explanation I wish So when I play, it gets recorded immediately it's trip to you and then your voices subsequent trip back here takes time and then it gets recorded. So we shouldn't probably sing along since we're not actually singing along I. Think it's rather than go log at home if you're out on your by everyone is always. To wear. White. A man. Four. Then the.

Hour 1: Cowboys or Eagles

Hour 1: Cowboys or Eagles

"Well well what's going on everybody welcome into I take Molly Camrose Max Kellerman you ready to do it again I'll write stephen how we doing and good morning you're doing everything good real look at this Matt Matt Matt Nice Young Lad Bali look at the dominant franchise coach quarterback that's the combination Doug Peterson Super Bowl winning coach already Carson Wentz elite talent WanNa look at the long run here the eagles have a better chance to win the super bowl the cowboys for several reasons one what's the fastest way to suit to win a super bowl when hurt defense what do I talk about when I when you look at the chiefs when you look at the rams even at times when you look at different teams with these high powered offenses it's good to see him out there and this defense is legit there is no question about that and so when I look at it from that perspective I'm thinking all the ingredients the elements on some of America's first of all the narrative about his financial as opposed based on what we've seen I think you have to give the edge to the cowboys despite their two game losing streak because they have a quarterback that we know can play regardless of how he struggled Alaska you bet real clear it is not impacting that with me at all Stephen a let me ask you this Cowboys Eagles tied atop the division they don't face this gala is back Jason Witten has been a solid security blanket in short yardage situations I think we know what he can do despite his age or what have you you need I would have to give the edge I look at the Philadelphia Eagles and Gaza dropping passes there's health issues we're still wondering about cost and went cla weeks they have an elite running back Ezekiel Elliott who struggled the last couple of weeks but we know he could do what he can do they have a number one receiver in Amari Cooper Michael he's playing is frankly laughable it's just not the way it's it's too much on both ends of that before the season ends if the playoffs started today maybe even then you'd have an argument the cowboys just lost two games to like soon as teams got decent they lost but from the standpoint of of of of how how durable he's going to be etc destroy Jackson hasn't been back right now the cowboys definitely deserved edge because we know at at least that we know it elite talent though he hasn't looked very good recently but we've seen him play at MVP level for thirteen games of the season before he got out for this moment right now I would tell you that the cowboys are a better super bowl bet then the Philadelphia I mean if I assure you I would change for the team is too much for for back to equate his performance stats or one loss here these first two or three games matt can't be critiquing everybody else and not have y'all support on this Thanksgiving it's also important for the season and Komo a leader of better leader and I think he's working on it but when I look at these two teams Jason Garrett will eventually hold the cowboys back Doug Peterson they're more complete team and they have all the ingredients needed to implement into this into this scheme of things or the acquired a degree of success that we're talking about late after losses to the drew saints in the packers critics say his success is predicated on a Zeke Elliott's neither amounting to much production on the field here's Jerry Yeah I think I believe it or not I think for the moment it would be the cowboys now obviously I picked the eagles to win this division and I think at the end of the season it'll probably be the eagles but if we're asking this question right now he's dressed for the fall season all right guys let's get it Dak Prescott started off the season speaking of on a tear but as looked pedestrian of this week they take on the jets Faulk I've Sam darnold back and then they face the eagles the following we could he thinks the better super bowl contender is it the cowboys or Philly uh-huh a dominant defensive team against the run they have a stout run defense a super bowl winning coach of very talented quarterback and right now hello porn star Jimmy himself I mean listen when you look at it from that perspective and you can see the quarterbacks out there with the capabilities to do damage and I pointed the offensive line where the cowboys are you know famously excellent at this point but the eagles are actually going into the season they were a little overrated right now they might be point out that in this football era you better be able to match up in your secondary man-to-man you'd better have some athletes back there that can get it done so the used are not a perfect team I'm not taking them to win the Super Bowl but when you look at the kinds of teams that win super bowls it is the coach quarterback combination but for what I don't believe in there's something about them you go I don't know defensively really what you're talking about to me is always run defense I mean the proverbial you the it has going for them I can't denied affected the Dallas cowboys deserve the edge at this particular moment in time look every team has a weakness and you're right Doug Peterson and Carson Wentz do you like that in the moment of truth or do you like Jason Garrett and Dak Prescott give me Peterson and Wentz what I don't doubt that I'm certainly not gonNA doubt it against the cowboys I think they'll figure it out but if you have to make this choice right now looking at both respective rosters and see what saints wait like that team why because that's a team with a dynamic offense that can defend Doron could defend against the run that's the eagles the eagles are Stephen by the way they're tackles even lane Johnson on the right side and of course Jason Peters on the left side win healthy that's it it doesn't really get better than that so you look at all the real you have to go against Detroit with Matthew Stafford they they might have to go against Jerry Golf in La they might have to go against Russell Wilson they might have to go against Jimmy Cintas can help your business get ready at Cintas dot com that's C. I N. T. A. S. dot com cintas provides a wide range of national football league. Well chances are Max if they're gonNA make it to the super bowl who they're going to have to go against they're going to have to go against a Dallas they're going to have to go it gets a green bay they're going for more than ninety years the company has worked held businesses big and small look more professional and run more smoothly cintos focus on the details so you can focus on keeping your you know you be Max congratulations on that one you just wanted argument because who the hell's go I'm not gonNA argue that last point that black cat he areas and now right now Stephen F. Sean Jackson's out the guy who takes the little the defense the offense is not gonNa look exactly the same and I've talked much about Carson wentz leaving to learn underrated in terms of still be able to achieve on the line especially with their tackles went healthy I mentioned the run defense there other things to like about the eagles but it comes down charitable causes and community events get Cintas and get your business on-track this place look haunted mats mops restroom supplies first aid and safety products fire extinguishers and testing and training and compliance courses cintas helps customers get ready for the workday services that enhance his customers image and it also helps keep their facilities and employs clean safe and looking their best with products and services including uniforms listening to the first take podcast more than one million businesses Tracinda's to help them open their doors with confidence get sentas and get ready for the workday learn how house of what I would call a double edge sword on one hand we have the eagles what's their weak link mats their secondary the fact that they can't defend against the past they ranked twenty seven and sleep in the car now at the Geiko weeds which today for twenty four seven access to licensed agents so after the grounds were embarrassed look at it from the perspective that Peterson and Wentz can do some things for you but Swanson that defense even though I like Schwartz's defense coordinator that defense that second they got the I got you there but again we're talking about we're talking about Philadelphia he was like you can say Peterson and went but remember that defense was we'll push the eagles forward well listen that's what I'm betting on so there's no disagreement here but the reason why I don't think you're in a position to make that argument at this particular moment in time Max August visit veterans but that's not really about the linebackers as much as it's about the coaching one of the cowboys ever figured it out in the moment of truth week leak is is defending against the past I don't think that bodes well for the Philadelphia Eagles and what did they manage to overcome it they'll figure out a way to work around that sure on that note we bring our Guy Marcus Spears Marcus how we doing I'm doing well I'm doing better than Freddie Kitchens Oh you don't think about those two creepy girls come stay with ast truly frightening against the run where you would think they would be stout those linebackers but those lines asked about this the other day off cameras I can't understand I love van Russian these guys ace of your franchise who happens to be the number one overall pick in the draft a couple years ago who hasn't looked anything as expected and as advertised a in defense of his squad we're not panicking all right we're GONNA play the next game all right there's a eleven more tune ity because somehow someway you manage to ingratiate yourself with the number one overall pick franchise you go throb of quarterbacks coach the what happened both teams are using their aggression against them especially savvy coaches. You don't think you'll figure that out I don't know Steven when of always he is a problem they fix not against Iran we know what they can do it gets to run against the past that's what the Eagles have to worry about meantime the cowboys quarterback that is a one constant of situation after another making headlines for anything but actually playing football games and so when you look at it from that perspective is running at its best and touch delivers everything you need to open your doors with confidence Cintas is a proud fortune five hundred company that is involved in over four hundred even peddled this right look just because you can coach up the offense which he did when he was the offensive coordinator last year with Baker Mayfield that's different than running a whole team and you know what yeah that's the truth Stephen I'll start with you do think it's time for browns fans to panic I think so I think so I think that you have the floated narrative as popular to say nowadays no one can say store anymore we have to call it a narrative no story but the story has been that kitchens is a first year head coach and we weren't going to be seen as perpetual football purgatory now here we are in a situation where we're being reminded we've got a second year quarterback in options in eighteen starts the team to win three under five hundred they haven't met expectations you've got to come up with you know trickery and ski album and remember why they had a chance to all these in the postseason because that depict showed up on like they did during the regular season when it got blitz by that same all states franchise so we toward offense coordinator to a head coach in a year and when you look at it from that perspective we start struggling the way that they've been struggling ultimate The niners on Monday night football and a thirty one to three beat down and Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions were sacked four times their head coach Freddie Kitchens had this the season a couple of things and I was talking about this even before the season the schedule in the middle like early middle schedule was going to be very very tough it's putting new team together rookie head coach the whole thing plus the trade for Odell included trading their star pass blocking guard Zeitler stories that we're telling may in fact e true but just pause for a second or at least let's let's put the brakes on a little bit here and slow it down we knew going in Nia do your head coach is a rookie who by the way somehow some way with all of these coaches out there working their tails off a decades starving for an his Co. is I mean I think he's completely twenty five percent of his passes in the Red Zone Cuba is around twenty nine point eight he's thrown twenty two inches read the franchise broke off. 'cause I'M GONNA agree with Eagles Vikings this weekend we'll see if anyone takes the lead there hey I'm only care manure to get one win and their next three games at least they can't lose of course they gotta get away the next three games to would be preferable obviously but they could go on a by the way they got the bills at Bengals guys they can go I expected them this season to go on a tear in the second half you're right guys if you're going to say look dolphins at steelers Bengals Act Cardinals Ravens who they've already beaten at Baltimore they tell you the good news here let me tell you the last seven games of their season you tell me the real real tough one here steelers repeat line pieces start to play together that usually takes a minute as when when you throw a whole bunch of new pieces to get their new head coach and you have a rough schedule that takes a minute but how are they going to replace him and what I say Stephen early on they might get off to a slow start three and four maybe even two and five I could see it as the as the new offense things in order to get Odell Beckham Junior football and he's throwing fully Qbr and your quarterback comment on top of it all you know you've you've got for that obviously he deserves it because it's in the win but when you look at this team beyond who they're gonNA play they have no identity they check out we we praise them for the Baltimore game but honestly that was just handed off the niche up explosive plays and they did things so if you give Freddie kitchens crazy on the penny has nothing to do with the schedule every problem we thought Cleveland had would have has come to come to fall right look I'm GonNa give I'm GonNa give you three examples I number one the first year head coach he's having a hell of a time trying to call the right plays from weekend goes it's always a tough place to play because of altitude and all this kind of stuff so or not this kind of stuff because of that so we knew it could be rough going early the fan base is going to rain down upon you because the mentality is going to be wait a minute maybe we looked at this all wrong we were so excited about the talent and so's excited about the fact that or something like that after seven weeks mix you watch football or you're watching them play Oh yeah it's time to panic and the reason is the broncos too so let's say in the next four weeks they need to wins they could make the playoffs they could make the playoffs in the AFC north if they're if they're three and four even know if this guy their franchise guy that they talked about since last year when he ripped off seven games by the way when a schedule like you just mentioned the head coach and who's bright idea was to put that together these are the kind of things that they now find themselves in because of what we've witnessed for they looked bad it's not just that they're two and three it said here come the seahawks and the Patriots and then even when they get softer team they gotta go at Denver like at tankless Great Service Geico you twenty four seven access to what I said Egypt's creepy girls to see our room on the strengths last year what made everybody so high only six of those six of those seven wins all of those teams had losing records it has nothing to do with who they are do y'all approve do he'll kill I think it's autumnal appreciate it thanks very much I mean 'cause y'all approval it kind of highlights is the fact that all of a sudden you're remembering you've got a first year head coach you remembering with all this talent that you have your quarterback as a second aspe- jar with you the first five games of this NFL not time to panic yet understand why you would say that but not time the panic yet and I'll tell you why it's easy for US plane they have no answers from week to week throughout the NFL season about who they are as a team might might say oh the beggar has catches in the last two weeks he's the highest paid player on your roster he was brought over to make this offense prolific and Baker Mayfield another weapon you look at Jarvis situation more gracefully than he has he continues to impress Those things actually happened you say we don't know if they have the talent at quarterback fair to ask whether or not he's elite let's keep in mind the niners right now score was deceptive the worst part about the game is when they fell down big they kind of they didn't have the kind of fighting them you'd like to see that I throw a touchdown pass to make it fourteen ten that was handed to the niners who then scored that's a huge swing in the game I'm not saying they would have won the game but according to a lot of them metrics for what that's worth guys are the number one team in football I don't agree with that but they are undefeated and they're considered the best team in football and Baker Mayfield Lakers was cancelled Wednesday just hours before it was scheduled to begin adding to the fallout from a recent tweet by rockets GM Daryl Morey that showed support for Anti and the Patriots Baker posted a four point two QBR that was on Monday night football the NBA cares event in Shanghai involving the Los Angeles Watch so far we've surrounded him with arguably the best per talent that you can in the league and we can't figure it out I'm sorry three is troubling and that probably points to head coach which is why I say that story may be true but let's not panic yet okay the you might WanNa panic when they face the seahawks government protesters in Hong Kong the NBA would only say that calling off the event which was supposed to benefit the Special Olympics was not its decision a fan of that was scheduled for you look at the schedule we know that they have the talent per se individually to compete almost anybody in the national football league the said the League would still donate computers to the center the Lakers proceeded with a practice Wednesday that was closed to the media team source told the ESPN the Lakers in Brooklyn Nets are scheduled to play the Wednesday also cancelled on Tuesday an NBA cares event with the nets and education center in Shanghai was cancelled by the Chinese Government NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Attic over the outcome and reaction that followed Maurice tweet but he noted that we are not apologizing for Darryl exercising his freedom of we have a lot of issues that they're just and they uneasy about it okay let's say they do like I said that story may be true I've told that same story about kitchens in the way the I'm telling you right now that within that building when you go on weekend and week out there asking themselves this is a real legitimate question this is not for me to power on Baker Mayfield but have taken place but with that being said I don't know why you wouldn't panic and I know that's what coaches the polls to say we're not panicking but you better believe that within that building first two preseason games and the country Thursday silver is expected to address both teams later today silver speaking in Japan on Tuesday said he and the League are apology onto the last eight games of the season well first of all first of all I disagree with you about the Kareem Hunt Element because again whether it is nasty is Kareem Hunt is as a player the browns being a playoff team and they're gonNA be look if it is a bright spot they benefit off of their division and how bad the other teams are for the unfortunate things or at a point this year where you asking yourself is this guy good enough to make us to take us over the top you have to you have to ask that question based on what we oppose Adam Silver's claim to support Moris right to freedom of expression the statement read we believe that any remarks that challenged national sovereignty and Sedna statement posted to their official social media count the broadcaster indicated the decision was prompted by earlier remarks silver May Japan quote were strongly dissatisfied actual interests but not always mutual values and from time to time the difference in our values rears its head and what could be more stark than eight minutes Max I want to start with you what do you make of the latest NBA China developments. What I said yesterday I think stands here United States China we have the statement out of China that we disagree with the idea that freedom of speech extends two topics say I understand Baker last year second half to the season was one of the best quarterbacks in football it throughout college he was a cut above everybody else the core American values and especially like a league like the NBA has celebrated the individual and she'll stability are not within the scope of freedom of speech here's further reaction from players and coaches Russian Chinese state broadcaster TV said it will no longer air the two preseason games? CCTV is also reviewing all cooperation and exchanges involving the NBA this is for a lot of businesses around the world on the one hand economic exchange is good because it opens things up cooperation and the idea of once upon a time is already struggling with the roster that he has which is why we will marcus but then there's the other thing Max that I will ask you a question this is question did you think that they would get each of the last seven games of the season do you like I see a sin every sit there they should be favored every single one of those last seven games except compared to what we've had to live through the last three years big difference big gap leadership wise encourage wise tolerant of speech like what are people so scared scared of words your social stability national sovereignty is threatened by the words of dissidents okay that tells you rush as it's as it's being framed by many I think I think it's a clash of government ideology right the communist government doesn't leaving this that doesn't mean they're they're people don't means that they don't and the question in terms of the NBA just as business doing business in China and MHM silvers been very supportive of that and we're GonNa talk about Adam Silver and a second this is not necessarily a culture trysts in which case China would would kind of win that conflict and so far the answer has been no in this not entirely maybe how actually unpopular of current government is and the point is that the NBA made the choices many businesses have around the world know we going to take place and then the question is is would would kind of with American ideals be subordinate to business reason why it's time to hit panic is because their issue was not telling the issue is disciplinary issues structure the issue as an identity the issues certainly I think it's I think it's easy to simplify this by saying I don't know of anybody in these United States of America that would district I can disagree but everything you say I have the right to do that and I have the right to So-so and that's good that's good that's what this NBA China developments. Let's be very very clear about what I think should happen I think the NBA if China is going to continue to take the position because he's something special it wasn't like it was some scrub not only that I think the part that you're missing Max is that that's an additional body to appease on a football field which Freddie kitchen a dicey situation right now you could use the phrase that cooler heads need to prevail or whatever the case may be but I think this is one of those situations where it's geopolitical issue it would spread democratic ideals immidiate has because there's a pro democratic force in China but also there's another side that says no you're enabling a repressive government that is in we'll cancel games we won't Air Games are obviously you have people like Rachel Nichols pointed out so accurately so when she appeared in China with Lebron that at this particular juncture the players shouldn't be there the NBA led by Adam silver with the support of Doc Rivers Gregg Popovich and nick national sovereignty and stow social stability no that they released the statement that flies directly in the face the body as far as I'm concerned in the United States of America you leave that for Adam silver to handle and get those players out of there because right now it's a dicey so they might or may not be I don't know but what I do know is that it's a dicey situation basketball players going over there to play games and so you know I'm here for Adams to freedom of speech felt great again so should ultimately leave China right now max let me just read this again because I don't want to Misquote Adam silver who is very thoughtful essentially saying that the league was apologetic over the outcome and reaction really do and I think he's taken a lot of unwarranted criticism because I felt like oh here comes the Chinese effect right this is not the only business and but that were not apologizing for exercising our freedom of speech do like the way he has handled this situation as the Commissioner yes Lori is attached to it if it wasn't daryl morey be someone else who said something or did something but eventually this this clash of ideologies was a halfway across the globe but Adam silver at first is of course protecting his business interests the nature of business you WanNa keep that very important business relationship this country is about freedom of speech and we should always have sleep all right hardened pop dot co-signing there on the commissioner it's clearly incredibly dicey it's political variety we've got politicians like Ted Cruz and others speaking out and as a result it just means to me getting perfect behavior what's is did Adam silver make the optimum move every step that's not really the way to judge someone's behavior Adam silver has now been the team looks and everyone said the thing about identity what's there at least offensive identity at least that they gave the Baltic jumped ahead it was gonna be there they're going to run it a whole in that way but then came right out and said we support unequivocally our players right to say what James Many several years ago thousands upon thousands of people outside disco round there wasn't even tens of people out there willing to greet the to find themselves in because of all because of the fallout of all of this I wanna get to silver and I understand what

Thank you for joining me today. Hello Lauren thanks for having me and then we have boomer the bearded dragon. Who was our special guests on the other special guests on today's podcast? What do you have to say all right? That was a great speech boomer so glad that these two wonderful people and bearded dragon are here. Let's begin with some bearded dragon. Fax Andrew. What is the scientific name of a bearded? Dragon? Pa- governor. You killed it. And they are reptiles. Their diet is Numb Nam Navarre. Yup they all know and their life been in. Tiffany is about ten years but they're listed in the wild is a little shorter five to eight years Noyce so you may be wondering. This is a lot of people's first question. How big are adult beard dragons? How big do they get well under the answer to this question there up to twenty two inches when we got our beauty seven and a half inches now? September twenty seventeen. He's now nineteen and a half inches. Sometimes they're pretty fat but he's still looks when he's running away. Even though he is an adult most of his length is in his tail up they way up to eighteen ounces as about one point one two five parents. Sir Nice Yeah. He isn't super heavy though about him. That like is difficult to hold him is that he's fingernails get long. But we don't cut them because you don't know how because we don't want to torture him also only torture with baths but that's about all right. What do they eat? The animals make up about seventy five percent of their diet as adult bearded dragons where fruit and veggies. Make Up the other twenty five percent. Animals INCLUDE CRICKETS COCKROACHES. Worms et CETERA. Food and veggies include Kale. Mango et CETERA. Are Lizard primarily eats roseberry's Kale Salad and we got him a strawberry bearded dragon salad dressing. Yes they sell. We have tried all the different types of insects and have settled on feeding him horn worms every day which isn't particularly healthy for him as the doctor or not the doctor. Just the the pets by the mets claims. They're like eating a hot dog every day. You know I think he likes them. I mean he's not. I mean boomer boomer what do you think? That was a great great. I think he really likes food. Sounds like it so maybe wandering. Can YOU POTTY train? Your bearded dragon is impossible to potty train. A bearded dragon. However you can train them to poop in a specific place we just kind of Kinda gross but if you WanNa hear that we training yes if you want to hear what we do keep listening emmy will go and extremely explicit detail if not skip ahead maybe thirty to forty seconds. All right here we go. Lizard is kind of ridiculous near fees is poop in his terrarium. I think he doesn't like the smell. Yeah we tell people that we potty trained him but here's would have visitor household if he needs to go. He basically runs around his terrarium in like jumps on. The glass wall is making a racket looking at US assistance. We get him out input on paper. Towel runaround for bit before pooping which is often prompted by the listening tail. Yeah it's Kinda gross farts before we so. I'm sorry about this that you're listening to the sped on any you. We wrote a paper talented in dog poop. Bag thrown away and get a clorox. Wipe wipe gun the area where he pooped for in this process. He just watches us like we are his servants. That's a lovely poop story all right. Let's move on. What do they need supplies? You need to buy a terrarium. If you're planning on keeping them while they grow up which I sure you I hope you are. You should buy minimum. He just jumped into the microphone. High boomers I worry. Violative of a forty gallon terrarium. Here's a list of other supplies taken from Miami Bio screen top. Which makes sure they can't get out the top Cherian and it holds the lamps. Yeah our place to so like a just like a rock or something that has like a heat map over basking heat lamp Hiding site for privacy so like we have a little cave he can go into a UV. Be Lamp which is like isn't like to be like I don't really know something like that anyway. So you've You also need a thermometer a humidity detector which we don't use those too much. It came with our area. He bought like a set spray bottle. The torture your Lizard. So he's wizard you'll when him in every single way he never drinks water really really funny but he gets mostly from worms. Let he might. We have bubble wrap down here on. He's thinking about popping going over the kind funny Eating dish to eat out of drinking dish. Even though they aren't day or night drinkers drink may prefer water. No I'm just kidding. Don't like that or sand. So it's like okay. That's a bubble rope Arkin. You'll get him. He's about to go into the closet. Okay he's A. It's like a you know matt or sand for them to walk in him We recommend a hammock could because he just shows up Dan seeps up there in his pretty cool yeah he likes the Hammock. He he relaxes here. Ci laxes So you might be wondering. Are they good pets? Yes they are very cute hands on an semi chill. I mean it. Sounds like this kind of chaotic right now. But you'll see one thing that you may want to know about them. Is that kind of hibernate at least art. Arlos or does it doesn't really move much during the winter. You won't Poop for weeks on end. He eats but he doesn't poop you just kind of sits there. We tried like we've considered putting him on like figs. At that point. We get scared but eventually but once spring comes around he runs around the poop once a day plus he's super loving and he likes to cuddle at night so he's really really sweet. He Falls Asleep on us. It makes a smile. We we really love our beer dragon. Right Andrew. The Best. His name is boomer Totally recommend getting your own. Not not the mean. Yes so other things. He's running away other things you should know. Don't keep two males together because they will fight. Don't keep a male and a female together because they will mate basically if you WANNA get more than one get either two females or get ones that have lived together since they were babies. Maybe they'll still may not really sure but I think that sounds better than getting just two hundred never seen each other before. They don't require a ton of attention but they should be fed daily and God not to play an poop and don't drink much water but it does take them a little bit of time to warm up to you so don't expect them to sleep on right away. I think it probably took me a week. Plus sleep on me. He did pretty quick. Yeah Andrew the favorite. Actually mom's a favorite now but originally Andrew Rosa favorite second favorite S. So now we'll talk. We'll tell some stories about our dieting horror stories as described them so originally. We Fed him crickets. That was our first decision was to freedom crickets because that was what they recommended and I think he liked them. I mean but there were some issues. Am I right so They were really Kinda of gross to have around the house. We had them in a box inside of a box and yet somehow one night my dad was in like he was on a business trip. We got home from Mexican restaurant. So is my mom my brother and me and my I tell you. We were sitting down to the ice cream and door desert endure homework. We saw cricket topping around so so basically all of the credits had got out in hopping. Right alarm madhouse in on the carpet. And if we remember correctly the last thing we had bought it was like ninety crickets. Yeah there were ninety small to medium sized crickets running around our house. I got Ken cents per cricket so I got like ten bucks and I'm kind of terrified of crickets out they. My mom wanted to deal with them but Eitan homework so I had to go near the room and the poor people. Andrew was just picking up crickets and smashing left and right. It was just so disgusting. I kind of. That's kind of gross. But I mean nobody else would do it. Yeah and then eventually. They ended up vacuuming. It was one of the most terrifying nights of my entire life and I think it was a traumatic experience Cricket and then and we got a lot of ice cream. Yeah Go Andrew. Now until this okay. This story gets terrible so it's not as I kind of have a fear of crickets ever since sense of experience. I don't mind them in a while. The guy like hearing noises win their Outsi- he just jumped. He keeps jumping. He is really active right now right anyhow. I don't mind Graham when they are outside making. They're pretty noise and like it. Sounds good I I like it. But if I don't like them on their inside so eventually we you have to like move up the Kirk sizes because otherwise it can be too small whatever but we never really wanted to give him a large crickets because one if you give them too big of a cricket pretty fast it can kill them from like you just ran across keyboard. You can kill them from indigestion here. We don't want him to. Oh He's GonNa try to jump on the kindle. Yes twist move. It's not lived on not to worry about but okay let me continue But you don't want to crickets. 'cause there can be indigestion and that could kill them and you just want to ease into it so we bought her first thing of large crickets and they are huge. I am telling you they are huge. They had wings to. They kept making super loud troops. They did not get out this time. But we're so scared that we just let him go we actually. I was genuinely terrified because they started chirping like in our house and I just did not like that noise inside of the room. I ran outside and I freaked out a little bit and so then the next day. We we release all of them into the wild and my dad did not like that very much. Because it's money you. They were like huge. Yeah they were discussing it. Misys gust or Andrew tell the dubious story okay so are dubious also cockroach. They're like mini. Cockroaches is disgusting the kind of a big rally police the but so we used to like have this food dish that we fed him with now. We kind of feed him with like tweezers. A Long Story Short Short Short Short. We WE STOP FEEDING HIM. Crickets after both those experiences inserted one hundred percent debut. Keep going okay so So they they could get out of the food dish which was pretty tall now. It's our salad dish so it works well but they are gone out into the terrarium and they hid behind so has like a styrofoam wall that he can come on and stuff in the back of history like survived off of the the start with the styrofoam can make like Kennels in they all died out eventually but like but it took him so long to 'em band like ever cleaner history this enormous cockroach. I swear these things are huge and everybody was scared of them. And so like somebody. Ocd Data Andrew. Pick THEM UP TWEEZERS. Throw him outside like in the water feature because we are those things are huge. They literally eat the Styrofoam in there. Somehow still alive and that thing eat boomer not actually like it's like big enough that I- boomer definitely couldn't eat it and self. Yeah it'd be terrifying but So we also stopped feeding him cockroaches. After that experience we stopped treating them to Dubya. And so then we transitioned to hoard worms. You're happy I did meal worms. Oh no he. He tried when he didn't like it. He hated it and home. Sued yet. Horn worms which are not like worms. You find in the ground. They're like they're actually -Til Naval Horn on their head to really pretty to make. It seem like there are actually pretty. You go search up horn worms prefer like a creamy color but caterpillars but yeah he loves like three of them day he he really likes them. I think and he really enjoys salad every day with the raspberries we call. We think he might be a drag queen because he he likes to step in the raspberries any gets like read all over himself so he'll have like what we like. It looks like Nail Polish and lipstick. It's pretty awesome eats. The RASPBERRIES LIKE LIPS. Turn Red. So it's funny. He goes full drug we mode and some other things that are about him is that he he licks you. It sounds kind of gross. But it's Kinda like he looks down and like looks you. It's kind of like a dog but like not as cute. It's like it's just like the split second. He opens his mouth when he was really hot. Too like like a dog to relieve the hot heat these pantene but he doesn't do anything. Sorry from Right Kramer later and then he robs his tail around your arm. We don't know why he doesn't like snake. I think it's kind of like the old soon. Yeah like if you pick them up on Doug backdrop his Taylor on your arm remember the time where he just jumped on Hannity like Oh till at store okay. So we had him out he. He hates going outside because he's like afraid of the birds birds and stuff and we have like a bird feeder in her backyard so like no soap but once we brought him out and he just jumped right on out of my hands. And I'm like I was like for six Pectin nine with one but but he liked fell right on the pavement. Any hid behind the thing. We keep our cushions for chairs. Big like container intellect scare way enemies. day like they call got some other called bearded dragons. They puff up their beard. They're like they're black. They're January neck and it Kinda just goes black and it's enormous in a beer yet. It looks like a beer. But it's to scare off. Make them look bigger so any they also flattens out to make them look bigger. That way stops what he did. He didn't turn his beer black. He still pretty scared Our parents or at least mom. I don't think I would just work better but he We had to. We got him with a thing. He calls Gotcha statue got. He was like really scary. Looking at pick up Trimdon it was the only time anybody's ever really scared of him. But he's not scared he's yeah he's Super Nice in Q. And I think he enjoys contact because he always wants to get out and hang out with us. Some O- one of the fun things that I dealt with him recently Right when quarantine started actually is I bought him by him costumes. Off of a website cold Beard ease or something and it's great. They are the cutest thing and so I bought him. I'd see I bought him a Burrito blanket. Once we actually have with him right now I think he likes that. The basement to gets cold. Yeah but he's Nice Fuzzy might not end so he's got Burrito blankie and then pampered beauties. And then. What else we buy him. We bought him was the cost. It was a shark cost because we have a really big shark costume. Somebody always works for Halloween. And so we. We dressed up into the photo. Shoot with him in the little shark costume in somebody in the big shark it also unpressured Bassem Dinner. I turn price got like the hat. Seattle we've got a little pampered beardies. At and it's so cute on him and he really didn't like the shark costume but it also is too small so it's Kinda awkward but he didn't like it I think only because he's just not used to having stuff on him but he didn't mind the hat honestly it was really cute. He yeah he soup ladle wizard yes he's but he. It was fun to dress them up. We don't torture him much but that was one of the fun times we did. And he doesn't like when we spray him but when he sheds behalf to in because it helps it. Come up and you can't pick it off. And so he Hanley. It hurts like it hurts off embassy burners us with the person when we got him said Yeah So he doesn't like that one weird thing about them is that they bulged out there eyeball sometimes ca like stretch the eyelids or something so that they can. It's an attempt shedding so that they stretch out to kind of peel off so they don't feel as it's creepy. That's like the one thing. I'm always a little scary creepy. But forgets snotty takes seconds. Yeah he's done with the best but he's super q shedding. Were is pretty big now but yeah. He is a really good pet. I would highly recommend getting the dragon because they're super superfund super cute WADA. A good memories with him. This guy's pretty fun all right boomer. Any final thoughts about phone running around boomer. What do you think well bearded dragon? It sounds like he wants to buy a bearded dragon. Thank you for listening to our presentation and thank you to the wonderful special guests Andrew. Hello and boomer right now. Let's do weird impressions boomer. Yes we all talk for him but let's go to the altro by. We forgot one story. Oh yes so. When we're looking for Lizard Dragon. We're going to be went to all the different petsmarts I think. Yeah because we wanted to find the cutest one. Oh we got explain the difference between regular fancy. We'll do that in a minute. Okay Oh yeah yup but we wanted to really pretty one a but so we looking for them The first one. We went to the bureau dragging merely running away from the hands. Mine had a traumatic experience. Yet we were talking about how they didn't want to be scared. Don't do Hoon show those people. Yeah so we didn't get that one. We just went through different star but people were like also looking for beer jug at the same time so it was actually really funny. 'cause the next door pet store we went to. They also ended up there but they're like five minutes after so we got the good when we got boomer we got OPTIMA right here. Nine pre sure they got the element they're equally as nice but Bucher was like the Superior Pretty Su- per pretty he's orange. He's got like stripes straight. He's going to be the cover art if you WanNa look at him. He's super. His eyes were like metallic Brownish early pretty Orange Too. Yeah so Let's explain the difference between regular versus Crafty Greater Dragon. So it's really down to visit visible characteristics so a normal bearded dragon has scales which are off but fancy had smooth scales in texture which is funny because everybody always thinks they're going to be super rough but he's super smooth and usually pretty. I think that generally there prettier There's two different colors we call like the generic. We got like the pretty generic like when the an ugly. I mean not that there ever ugly. But he's like really And so we got that one. He's got like some orange but lot of cash to and then. And then there's other ones that are like albino worked on being all by weight but has like super cool because like. I think those are called the Rankin Dragon. Something like that but then So those winds are white and then the mind the wild ones are actually black and they blend will normally but sometimes they blend into their surroundings. A video around but By you can always Google also but this one Lucius thumbnail. It shows a super orange one one of the white ones that just like semi clear so yeah they've got like red wines orange ones. We got what we called a citrus tiger. Almost 'cause like sorta brown sort of orange yellow really pretty. Yeah so There's like how much time tonight one like silly yellow Nuts white and black. You know so. It's just up to the Individual Dragon. They're Nice. There's lots of different colors that you can find. Yeah there's lots of different colors you can find out there. So it's Kinda cool there.

Elgato Cam Link 4K, Key Lights Reviewed! Windows Quick Removal, Urban Axe Throwing!!! -- TekThing 224

"Go ahead yanked that thumb drive. Anytime windows is finally ready Gatos, candling, four K and key light and some serious acts throw and all coming up on tech. Thank you patrons without your support by patriarch dot com. Last tech thing we couldn't make show for you going the crew that makes tech thing possible at patriot dot com slash tech. Thank thank you. I'm Shannon, Norton. This is tech thing where we have something useful in every single show. Oh my goodness. We've a lot of useful stuff in this episode, actually. Well, okay. So we we have been upgrading video lifestyles a little home studios that we're building. It's fine. It's fun. I got a pretty short to the point Email from rob who wants to make his twitch streaming look better. He says that video you shot at home for the sixteen sixty looked awesome. How did you do that? It's true. It looked amazing. Thank you much. It's it was easy. Just changed everything. Sorry. I was I was watching a video program that kind of mocked sort of ideal mid-century housewife where it was like it's easy. I just do a lot of speed and pleasing. Leasing which actually in context was unbelievably funny, but the trick was to change my long webcam out for a better camera. And so this is what like traditional webcam video looks like. And this is what might webcam video looks like now, literally the difference is changing everything so key from me on this. And I'll explain why in a couple of minutes was now Gado Cam link, which is this USB dungle right here. And it's so cute. It's so tiny it even does windows. And if I hold it the right way the logos. The right side up. So I picked up one of these and recommendation use it they've put a USB extension in the box because when you have something this big singing of the back of your PC. Generally, it's dangerous. Yes. All you. Gotta do is shoved back against the wall. And here that terrible cracking always, but they put it on the box and. So that's getting me video from a Sony as six thousand camera and the lens it's on this helps a lot too. So instead of the sixteen fifty millimeter kit lens, I have this thirty five millimeter F one thousand eight prime lens on there is fixed focal length, so you know, to adjust the framing on this. I have to sort of move it or away from the camera. But it Hoover's up light. It is great for mediocre lighting situations. He just great for using natural light beautiful and also used a dedicated mic for audio which I was actually using before when I was recording podcasts on my system at home because webcam mic audio socks. That's true. USB, mike. That's what I usually use that. I actually have a man I have a scarlet to I two and all digital converter. And then I thought eight broadcast headset that goes along with this or use a lot of Mike with that. So this thing right here, I've been wanting to buy one of these a couple years, it's the major will USB three point zero captured dungle the excellent one hundred g USB tash HDMI. It is a really nice piece of hardware. It is incredibly well reviewed. They also cost two hundred ninety nine dollars each. So when L Gado dropped the one hundred thirty dollars Campbell Inc. Four K all I could think was I can't has better Skype video on my laptop. For less than half, the price of the major. Well, okay. Let's go to decent rep. They doing video for quite some time. Some people have noticed are having some issues with the Cam link and one of the problems with. What are the problems with video capture device problems is like wifi problems? Everybody's got a different house camera. Everybody's got a difference, computer. They're getting into. And I also will be honest. I've done a ton of ten P captured this I haven't really done much four K capture. It's rated for fourteen at thirty frames per second ten in EP at up to sixty frames per second Gatos, like we're good to go with MAC OS euro, ten twelve or higher windows ten and they want a fourth gen quad core core, I five CPU or better as with video games. Right. I would suggest this as a minimum questionable entry level and the higher up the food chain you go in the more cores you can throw it. Everything goes on in your computer, the less likely you are to try to throw your computer through a window. Not that either of us have ever wanted to throw a computer through never never not at all or network for that matter. Online. If your camera will work with this thing, they have a whole list of supported cameras a lot of the question is whether or not there, you can get clean video out of your camera, which is a subject, I'm not going to get into. Indepth right now because it gets weird and crazy pretty much any gopro. These are also by the way, the ones they've actually tested most of the Sony cameras on here. And the, you know, in many cases, for example, Nikon's should be able in theory to do this with an actual output on the cat USB put on the camera itself. What are the things you'll find out not news to you news to some of you is recording video for extended? Periods of time is very revealing of the challenges you can run into when using a digital camera for video. So we've mentioned this before right to avoid EU customs duties almost all digital cameras heavy thirty minute cap on recording video that tested has an amazing article that talks about why that is. And Allison you detested dot com in the show notes fascinating. And it totally like broadens your mind. As far as a why that cap is there it's random it's stupid. It'll really piss you off guess what it has to do with firing video though, really battery life on. On a lot of digital cameras. I can shoot hundreds and hundreds and thousands and millions of still pictures, twenty minutes shooting video tops. It seems like that. But this is all it's funny. This is also a two thousand fourteen camera design, so you know, to along the two so I have one of these slick little extra adapters that puts a dummy battery inside the camera. Okay. So we got a thirty minute cap on there, which you can modify the firmware to remove and we have a power dafter. So we don't run in a battery and then overheating can be issue for many cameras because digital cameras are usually primarily engineered for taking still pictures not for capturing video for four thousand hours of time. So with the six thousand what the community is figured out. Is you open up the back, and you leave the battery opened battery cover opened down here, and you open up the lights up all sorts of all sorts of thermal thermal opportunities will fall, and it's funny, right because camcorders, and and sort of video citric cameras engineered to get the heat from the chips to the outside of the case. Of so in this case, you can open up all the panels, or this is crazy YouTube dot com slash fixed. It they actually cracked open the race six thousand put heat sink material in between the chips in the back of a camera. I am circling this. I want to be able to do this. Because what happens is if you're. Yeah. My cameras away too pricey for me to go after that I can pick these up used for about one eight the price of what you paid for your cab six. So it's a little less threatening. It is still pretty threatening. But it gets critical, for example, the first time I use this for video. It was by a window not as hot sunny day. But literally it was shutting down every ten minutes because it was overheating. Then it opened the ball. The covers was okay. It was easy like thirty minutes. And then I realized well, okay. I need to make sure it's not an open sunlight, so if what a record video in the desert when it's a hundred and five degrees. You may be doing really silly things like bringing a fan onto your digital camera. So yeah. Better camera better lens. Ten ADP USB HD, my captured abayas extra no power supply along with a headset. Microphone of your choice equals way, better video and audio than a standard hundred dollar webcam wrap. That was a lot more work than I thought it was gonna be. Well, we hope that helps. And of course, if you have questions about online, streaming video graffiti, photography and audio. Let us know ask it type thing dot com. My Skype looks piecing. Now, though does. Yeah. I have been working on building a home studio just like Patrick has. And I sold these brand new Gatto key lights over at CAS. Hello, bright, light back in January. So they were brand new constantly sold out on Amazon permanently sold out everywhere. Yeah. Pretty much like currently, they are unavailable. But if you're careers, they cost one hundred ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents plus tax. So here's my big question about that. Are they worth it are these little hunks of joy and expensive nece worth it? So these are geared towards twitch streamers alternate backwards. So it's not like blowing out your eyeballs actually, turn it off right now. But since I do. A lot of like guest hosting for my home. PC? I was pretty intrigued about how these things work. So as soon as they came back in stock on Amazon about myself too. Don this one but two because anybody with a studio like anywhere knows that you should have a couple of lights. We should put us in the context professional lights. You know, like I want to say a rodeo flows or think of the ones that I wrote a lights. I I think wrote on the full it's a really cool, but then like six seven hundred dollars a piece traditional flow lights LED lights might be six hundred thousand dollars. If you get into the really hardcore Hollywood stuff, it's easy to spend thousands on the individual lights. So in that context. This isn't that expensive in that context? This is pretty cheap in the context of comparing this to like newer, which is also on Amazon this is really pricey. Yeah. I mean new ear. I've got several of these at home. They started seventy dollars for a four hundred and eighty LED lights. This is more than good for for less than one light. You get two lights and a set of sands and stuff, but we'll talk about that in a minute. So these are wifi connected studio lights there may to allow for like really quick and easy streaming from a gaming desk or a battle station if you will instead of coming with a tripod light stand that come with these nice little dusk melts. So you can simply mount this straight to your desk the connect to your computer via a desktop app as well as an Android phone, and or I o s phone as well, if you're an apple user and can change in temperature and color. So the light comes with a power plug as you can see here, and it's extremely long, which is wonderful, especially if you have smog dusk. They don't solve generate the light now. Do you not have an external or internal battery on here? So you can't plug in a battery and make it light. And then go portable this is supposed to be stationary. And then you have the desktop poll mount which can be extended as well. And I'll let you know about the heights and everything like that too. So to set it up you simply stick on the light. And then you stick the light on the pole and clamp it to your desk. Like so today, and then you tighten it. And you adjust it to the desired height that you want and you plug it into power and the poll mount here can go up to twenty two inches or forty nine inches. You have a nice long availability to you in case. Like, I don't know, maybe you're really taller or something. And then the clamp here can extend to two point three five inches. So it has plenty of space for like, really. Fairly massive desks. Yeah. And then you just turn on then you install the desktop and the mobile app, which require either windows ten or MAC OS ten eleven you have to be on the same wireless network, which is only two point four gigahertz. That's the only maleable one cheap. You. China jewel. Yeah. Connect it. But once you go through the process, it'll be connected until you end up resetting it into reset it. It's actually a pretty simple process. All you have to do is hold down on a button for about ten seconds blinks three times. And then you turn back on. And that's all that will factory reset it. Now, you do have to do that any time. You switch wifi networks. So if you intend to take this into your work studio, and then back home, then you would have to reset it. Each time the same name on your network at home and at work. Yeah. Then you want to have to deal with that the big attraction for this though is the wireless connection that allows you to set the brightness temperature affects with desktop and the mobile app, they're very very small. But they include everything that you need. There's a power button right in the application. There's also a brightness bar. So you can make it super bright or make it really dim. There's a color temperature bra bar as well. There's also a settings menu. Oh, if you need to update the firmware, which takes less than a minute to complete. I had to do that. When I first got it in the mail. You can connect as many key lights as you need, which is nice if you have like multiple workspaces, so if you have like a photography space and your gaming center, if you have six lights, you can connect all six of them. You can also rename them. So it's really easy to tell which one you're messing with whenever you're using them. So the light here it uses one hundred sixty premium Osram, LED's Osram is a German company that sells e LED's and components for LED's and stuff like that. And they do range in temperature from twenty nine hundred up to seven thousand K, which is Kelvin. Yeah. So they extremely extremely blue. If you want them to be so the face on this as a smooth Opal glass, it gives it a nice soft box effect. And the brightness is an adjustable twenty five hundred Lumine. So it does get very very bright as well. If you are just top. Yeah. That's like it will make you look like a ghost. If you're using this. With your phone the Android app looks exactly like the desktop app. So there's no learning curve to it whatsoever. And it can also be controlled with an El Gato stream deck, which I'm sure a lot of streamers who already owned stream decks will be like, oh, that's wonderful. Because all you have to do is set it up in the software and then just click a button, and it turns on in. Then you can set like your desired settings and just click a button for that. So it's very very simple plug and play really easy to use. Now on the plus side. This declutter is your desk lighting, it is flush against the back wall. It requires no desk pace, there's no tripod associated with it, which is wonderful because it's very very minimalist. It's like low profile you see a lot of twitch streamers, and they have big old school soft box. Yes. Like HR? So it's nice having something that's so flat. So low profile it's also really low on heat to when I had this turned on. And it was like staring me in the face all like yesterday. It didn't make me feel hot. So you won't be sitting in front of like hot lights throughout your entire gaming session. Now, the same thing can be said for like the newer LED lights. Those don't get hot either. And they cost half the price. So keep that in mind. It kind of depends on what you're looking for of course for the price. But the newer ones aren't as minimalist now, I would love, and maybe this is just like totally out there. But I think this would be really cool if they added Amazon echo or Google assistant voice control. I think that would be so cool. This is if the opportunity it might be. Yeah. But honestly, like how often are you going to change your color temperature and brightness settings like maybe brightness? You'll change quite often. But color temperature I feel like I won't change that much in your room. Well, that's just me. If you have multiple lights were complicated, light sitting this nice to be able to walk in Alexa, or Google home. Turn on the lights. Yeah. So I think it's pretty cool. They are really really expensive very expensive. But I do think the price is fair after I've been playing with them at first I was like, oh, I don't know. And then I started playing with them. And I was like, oh, actually, I think they're worth it. Given how easy these artists up? How integrated they are with the workspace. How premium they feel because they're all metal all around and how minimalist design is. They are top quality. So I think they are worth the price. If the app was Jenky or the device itself was made out of plastic which it's not I would probably Baltimore at the price. But they are metal. They're heavy duty. And they have very very easy apps. I think El Gato has a winner here in. I was quite surprised when I started playing with it. But now, I'm definitely going to keep these. They're awesome. I'll be very curious. Hopefully, they get another supply because they have been sold to at this point. Yeah, it's ridiculous. Like, it's so hard to get these things and you have to dive in as soon as you see that there in stock. So we were talking before about those new year lights. We have a ton of these in the studio that we use right now. And what's crazy about these? For example, you get to with stands for one hundred and thirty six dollars, and you can kind of see. If Google Google if Amazon will open up there are a mixture of white and yellow LED's and to get their maximum lighting is kind of problematic. Right. So in theory, they go from fifty six hundred k which is a sort of a standard daylight and all the way down to Tunstall lighting, which is around thirty two hundred k and that's cool. But what happens when you take a look at these at the actual brightness of them. And this is for a slightly different sort of cousin lamb. If you have all the way down you have all the yellow lights, and you get fourteen hundred and fifty lumens, and if you have it at the highest temperature setting you get fourteen hundred and fifty lumens, but if you want all of the brightness you end up with a temperature of forty two hundred K because it's a mixture of the white in the yellow lights. That's fascinating. It is fascinating also laughing. There's also the new LED five hundred ultra high power, which has this makes me laugh, so hard it. It doesn't have a fancy wifi control. But it does have a remote. So you can sit at your desk change. You can sit at your desk and change the Kelvin temperature on the remote. That's actually pretty pretty cool. It is pretty cool and those also sell for sixty bucks. But they're probably not going to be as bright is that. Yeah, you could buy four of those for the price of one of those or eight of those for the price two of those seven of those probably don't forget the tax people. Well, hopefully, I didn't like blow your balls out with the brightness of this thing, it might be role as I was recording that, but yeah, it does get bright. I don't have a way to actually test that I don't have the devices needed to be able to test the brightness. But just from personal opinion, they bright they really bright. Let me know if you have any other questions about different Ohka algata products. We did buy these ourselves like they didn't send these to us or anything like that. We would love to check out other products as well that are like home studios or streaming us to super fun, very professional, looking Skype or Google hangout environment. Yes.

Or just Email us asking tech thing dot com and a big shout out to our patrons. Patriots dot com slash tech. Thing you pay the bills you make the show possible. Our thanks to you. Join the crew that makes tech thing happened at patriotair dot com slash tech thing. Huge news amazing development. You're gonna visually. Stop manually. Checking flash drives safely. Remove hardware is taking care of him windows. Ten I never safely removed, my heart. I started safely removing my hardware for the first time. I actually always do it. Noah's ten oh, that's not that I run that much anymore. I started doing it and windows. Ten the thumb drives we use for our teleprompter kept getting corrupted would manually. So if this is a wonderful read, we'll talk about second windows. Ten version eighteen o nine later chain default removal policy for external storage media. So quick removal now fault setting for external drives as if windows ten eighteen oh nine and I want to give a shout out to the crew at the verge because they pointed out this is actually pretty much been the standard since October when eighteen nine I started rolling out. This is an exciting. This is kind of exciting, and I also had to say. The whole windows read when does send version eight hundred nine and later change in policy for extra source media. I'm really enjoying that title is actually a really interesting read if a brutal title there are actually two modes quicker, movable and better performance. And so what better performance does is it caches right ops to the extra drive? So it doesn't it? So basically, if you've ever gone to copy large filed your system and your system with. So if you had better performance, it will catch that information slowly metered out to the USB or whatever kind of external drive you have. But then you have to use a safely remove hardware process because you made yank the drive before it's done and quicker mobile. It's just vamp getting the information onto the drive as fast as it can who cares about the user experience. So apparently all those thumb drives I crept in the past few months work done writing, the two K textiles to them for the teleprompter. Really? I got all willy nilly today. And I ripped that thumb drive out. I had zero issues. Yeah. So that was exciting. That is good. I still I it'll be interesting to see how long it takes me to unlearn manually. Injecting the files and also want to give props to the verge for editing article to point out that doesn't mean you can remove the thump drive while it's actively writing files to now that so it's writing just let it be. If you have that green bar on your on your file manager the drive, but once it's complete you go for it, buddy. Do let us know if you have any questions about USP's escalating dot com. Questions. It's more ideas for power cycling, the old cable modem, come in from y'all Dr KYW tweets, a modern version of the old programmable outlet timer works great. This is the fantastic. If you've ever had the dial ones, and I feel like I was I was looking at one at a yard sale recently. This is the century seven day, heavy duty digital programmable timer dual outlet to people. Thirteen dollars. Sounds excellent. And you could set that up to reboot your cable modem every twenty four hours and your motive and your router you're capable of annual powder. What if you could like ten minutes separately like for you one another Matt aka endpoint what a one tweets, here's another alternative for controlling main sockets? There's uses a raspberry pi and wirelessly controlled sockets from energy costing about twenty pounds. And he has this amazing how to on this for controlling power sockets using a raspberry pi. And it is pretty slick actually because he sent it up. So that when his chrome cash shows. His home network. It turns on his sub woofer. And then when he shuts his television in his chrome cast down if turns it off so mad love that very very cool. And a really nice said at the I y instructions for that one. Yes. Thank you for sending the DIY instructions to we also got another viewer suggestion for digitizing, your old tapes. This one comes from Brian at crash box. Who tweets Costco, offers video digitalization use it recently for a couple of old VHS tapes with good results. Video yearbooks from high school would share the results, but there's the rights to others likeliness thing. Oh, yeah. Legalizations? Also, it was the early nineties the fashion it burns. Yeah. I know what you're talking about. That's why I will not share my video yearbooks from high school as well. You have the big hair. Yeah. Super curly super frizzy lots of big here and also big big glasses and braces. Nerd life. We would also like to thank heck five for the studio space.

Friday Four

"I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel, so I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try, get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor switch to Joel check, OJ dot com. Slash sports. If you don't smoke, Vate, don't start warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. They one of next generation Lakers what. And the first basket career I expect him to dominate. I really do have no wars in the will of then we'll bring that not using yelling MP Steve penny arrested is accused of tampering with evidence. How many more times is USA gymnastics going to fail. They keep making the same mistakes over and over. Again, they're brought up the ceremony. Will I something cruel the draw of regret into the pillow remorse. The league newest breakout star is just everywhere, and they fuzzy are inch creature. But you've come off the collective high of LeBron LA just remember he's got eighty one more regular season games to go. Already. This one, the Friday forum, Ryan Smith in for bobbly thinks he's k. that for six months. Yeah. Yes. Our general? Yes, not only by the way, a collective scream for joy. I would say for the NBA return this week, major league baseball producing to stirring league championship series with the possibility of dodgers SOX World Series, showdown looming and USA gymnastics finding itself again in hot water over questionable decision. So what's new there? So what's new here, though? One of our panelists, he's becoming a season pro. Don van Natta who's ready to throw Derek jeeter under the bus Dagan to. Yeah, ready to ask the age old question by the way, doesn't everybody know how to throw a football and Jeremy chap who just on a scarf again, and now he's got to start wearing an Ascott hopefully pretty soon. This is not a mascot. I, it's not that cold Chilean. Part big stories today, the return of the NBA and think about this folks fueled by months of off season drama LeBron to l. a. and Jimmy Butler making practice. Great. Again, come to mind the league is finally back and already fueling new intrigue. LA got a taste of reality last night. And now the phrase of the day is instant oatmeal. I'm going to get back to that in a second and Houston. They're wondering if this Carmelo things going to work out after their opening night drubbing and that's just the Western Conference. And that's how good things are right now in the NBA. But let me ask you guys celebrate the instant oatmeal comment. He said, you know, teams don't like instant oatmeal, which to me actually goes kind of fast. I don't understand why that's slow anyway. What are you? Not instant oatmeal. Well, he said it's not instant me. Who am I take some time to jail, but all quick. Quick. He'll takes a long time too steep LeBron to LA. Yeah. What are your thoughts? Okay. So for me, the most interesting part of this, especially hosting the show yesterday and we showed footage of LeBron compelling footage of LeBron walking from the locker room. You say, filling in the bobbly? Yes, filling in for Bob Lee. This show watching him walk. The discussion around the Braun often, why are we covering LeBron so much? And he could no question could not be at a more fevered pitch than what we've seen almost every day of the last one hundred ten days since he announced he's going to LA. So I would like to in my own way answer a little bit of this question about LeBron in sticking with the food theme of instant oatmeal. I will say that Ron really is mommy. He really is mommy. Oh, wow, real Brooklyn. Okay. Just on the co? Yes. Let me hitting all of our census like LeBron is not like a lavar ball where you could sick of the one thing he's doing LeBron is extremely likable to a lot of people extremely unlikeable to a lot of people. He put themselves in situations where there's a lot of controversy over what he's doing. Like obviously, we cover him in everybody covers him to an extreme amount, but I just wanted to throughout the food metaphor there to be seen as a hipster, but what I need to be seen, but is it too much it is it probably is too much, but one of the things that I'm really fascinated about LeBron in LA is he's finally now going to be a mentor. He's embracing this mentor role. He's the superstar mentor every single time. He went to coach exactly, especially who's coach, which will make it. That's right. But that's the one thing I think where we may not see overkill. I agree if if the Lakers are fifteen and thirty and they could be this team has a lot of challenges, then we'll see how interested the national media is in the Lakers come Jan participating this discussion under protests under protein. It's the first week of the season. It's an eighty two game regular season just because for you. Consett got started. I mean, this is where the middle of the baseball. What are they called? This is the sports. What is it? The equinoxes. Good point. We're in the middle of the baseball playoffs. And yet we had a countdown clock counting down to lebrons French this thing, so everything because we said it was everything. Does it make it everything? You know, there's a difference between perception and reality and we gotta take the glasses off and say, hey, guys, it's week one settled down, so so. So when you saw the shots aren't, let's put the LeBron somebody who spent all their time coming up with how is career. These are LeBron's career field goal attempts and the context is how much time somebody's spent on three years. Three full years of like hint, just pull that up on the internet computer. I thought nobody had done that before, and now we have it. That's great. Nobel prize. Well, let's talk about this moving on from basketball, even which Jeremy. I'm sure it's very happy. Now, controversy in sports this week, United States gymnastics and everything that's been going on with them this week. Two things really Steve penny. Let's take a look at this. I. The former head of USA gymnastics is behind bars for constructive per my attorney to assert my rights under the fifth amendment. Prosecutors, say penny impaired the investigation how many more times is USA gymnastics going to fail Steve piney. You are collared resigning from your position to give a sponsor ability to someone else for being the environment to let this monster thrive. An incredible week for USA gymnastics. Yes. Yeah. I mean, we haven't even gotten to Mary Bono. They've had three leaders of the organization in about forty eight hours. It seems like and to hire someone whether or not you disagree with her politically whether or not you think she stepped over the line or instep over line with some of the tweets that have been believed. The point is to make a decision about who's leading an organization like this through time of turmoil. Wind is at odds and trying to regain the trust of so many athletes themselves not to hear their voices on it before the decision is made and then have to react after they say, what are you kidding us? This is where we're going someone who in some ways tangential directly, perhaps involved with the investigation someone who they claim was involved in the cover-up. Someone who has demonstrated, however, you feel about it and insensitivity towards the voices of athletes themselves. It's like. This is insane. Let's get some context to all of this. I Mary Bono was brought on by USA Geeta lead the organization left after five days after sending that tweet protesting innocence. Colin Kaepernick saying she was at a golf tournament showing herself blacking up the Nike logo. People responded harshly to that. And when you mention the allegations against her law firm, there was some sense. The law firm knew about the abuse didn't say anything. And then the other part of this though is Steve penny. He is the former leader of USA g and he has been arrested on suspicion of tampering with evidence moving documents from the Karolyi ranch. The national team headquarters win the investigation was going on and not only that he seemed to offer one of the investigators involved a job according to some of what we're seeing. Let's take a look at this really quick too, so we can set it up for folks. This was he apparently had emails and text messages going back and forth. And this was one of them just at seven pm on February. First of last year. Mr. penny wrote to this FBI public affairs officer in Los Angeles, seeking the bureau's help. In the communicate. He noted. This other stuff about wanting possibly there being a job available. I mean, this kind of stuff is very hard to defend for USA it is and you know the language that Steve Penney used in that Email is we need some cover here. He actually is alleged to have offered a job to the head of the FBI Indianapolis. Olympic FBI agents day Abbott, we need some cover here. There's the rest of the j. Abbott who is the head of the of the field office in Indianapolis, this this story keeps getting worse. Just when you think it's gotten hit rock bottom. It gets even worse and Steve penny. I mean, the his lawyer actually had the audacity to say, there was no conflict of interest in this offer on its face. There's a conflict of interest if you are under investigation, and you're trying to basically put an FBI agent in your corner. The whole thing really stinks. His lawyers have said that they were not trying that he wasn't trying to offer job. They've said that he will be exonerated and he doesn't have the authority to offer a US Olympic Committee job, and he certainly could have input with Down's doesn't look at him as if that's what he was offering. But really strikes me here is that this is one of the rare sports stories where we've hit such a tipping point that there doesn't seem on USA gymnastics part that nothing seems to be able to be covered up for them. Like you look at Michigan state because of perhaps the m- the tons of money. They have as a public school, you're seeing a lot of that come out, but you also can see them circling the wagons and not letting everything spill out when it comes to this USA gymnastics story. I mean, it's very rare women's sports that you have so many watchdogs and so many media outlets invested in it that they're actually tracking down every movement and revealing it to us. This is unprecedented when it comes like a women's sport and it speak for the idea of what a lot of people have been saying, which is get rid of this board, start anew. And you know what I would like to see. I would like to see them include some of the gymnast Aly Razman Simone biles others on that board. Right. Do? Yes. And do things new, they're going to be forced to do something like that. Not because they, they know it's the right thing to do. Right. All right. Well, coming up a new meaning to the words, Northern Lights and a big star passing on the NFL. Tell you about that under reported stories and villains next. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like this, it's good. It's it's, it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and j. u. l. dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. Outside the lines is brought to you by Modell oh, as messy. How brewed with a fighting spirit since one thousand nine hundred twenty five. Welcome back. Let's jump right into are under reported stories of the week, done on big star, turning down a big league. Yes. So riana was the first choice of the NFL to perform at this Super Bowl coming up in February and Atlanta. We didn't know that until yesterday because last month maroon five was announced to be the halftime act. Riana said no to performing because she's protesting the way the league has dealt with Colin Kaepernick. She's standing in solidarity with him. This is a great move. I think by riana and now maroon five is facing pressure. Amy Schumer this morning said that maroon five should not perform at halftime. So there are consequences to this Colin Kaepernick collusion case. It's costing America riana as the halftime act at the Super Bowl this year, and it makes look like scabs right now. Yes, it does not imply. That is what it is calling it like she sees it, but it is there you go. So my under reported story is Kobe. Bryant was cut from the jury of a film festival. The animation is film festival after an online protest over his rape case that he faced back in two thousand three. As you recall, he won the Oscar last year for his animation. He's become very big in that world. And in two thousand three, he was charged with sexual assault. That case was dropped. When the witness chose not to testify, he did settle a civil suit, but there was a change dot org petition out there. A couple of hundred people signed. And this festival responded and asked to take him out of the jury, which you think it's a sign of the times. I mean that had that kind of Kobe, by the way, put a positive spin on it basically said this motivates him even more to have a film studio that embraces diversity and inclusion. But it really is interesting that those one hundred people in that position could could change him being on that jury. All right, Kate, Aaron, Hernandez? Yeah. So my under reported is the spotlight team series on Aaron Hernandez over at the Boston Globe. It's a five part series and they're also doing audience with also a podcast. Now let me put why. I think it's under reported in context because last time I checked it was the number one podcast on itunes. So a lot of people are listening to this, but I think within the sports world, the discussion of what this means about how we see Aaron Hernandez does not seem to be taking place me because if you read that series and you listen to it, it is providing a well rounded, look at what created in who created Aaron Hernandez and bad decisions, environmental conditions. Now it's justification for his behavior, but it does offer us more for perspective than just categorizing Aaron Hernandez as a monster. So for any sports fans out there who haven't yet tuned into that or read that, it really is worth journals, dimensional picture, which is important, Jeremy. So my under reported in terms of its impact on sports, not under reported in general, is the fact that our neighbors to. North have legalized the use of marijuana for practically all purposes? Right. I think becoming only the second country essentially in the world lung with Uruguay to do. So, of course, we have teams in all of our major professional leagues except the NFL that are situated in Canada and all these leagues have rules against marijuana use. How are those laws going to now can form with the national laws of Canada's going to be an interesting thing to see it's going to become even less tenable leagues to continue to enforce anti marijuana rules when it's entirely legal in Canada, and that's going to be something leaves a really going to have to grapple with, especially so we learn more about the potential affects of marijuana, helping athletes who are in pain. The league's would argue that the collective bargaining agreement rules. I wonder if is going to try to challenge that and say, let's bring this to court, not in the NFL. All right. Let's talk villains. You know, Jeremy. This is our. I'm excited. About how much time do I. We just about this recently. I mean within last couple of hours that Wimbledon the last holdout the last bastion, the ledge of ten seconds left. Ornaments standing in terms of no tiebreaker in the fifth set is going to a tiebreaker next year. If the match is tied at twelve games apiece now that's still twenty four games before we get through tiebreaker. That's good. But that's not the point is Nirma who in two thousand ten that was seventy to sixty eight seventy two sixty eight. And that's what we need more of intended. Look, I thinking about this is England. All right, this is did Wellington say, you know what? If we don't beat the Polian by walking off the water. It's also means more betting opportunities when it goes to seven. The UK people are betting in real time on these games. So we're going to miss out on betting opportunity that did the light brigade, say. Getting dark chart. That's the Russian guns. They should shut. This is about this is about stubbornness, it's this is about an hour is about shit, right? Yeah, I'm better. He's flabbergasted folks. It's an abomination. All right. Let's move on. Thank goodness. Okay. My villain is the and I'll sort of break this down quickly. The g. league has agreed to pay really superstar talent up to one hundred and twenty five grand. We've seen that incredible move their gives players another option as opposed to going to college. The NCAA basically says, yes, it's another option. College is still the best thing. You've got the FBI trial going on in New York. The recent allegations of coach is being involved in payments. Those relegations by the way you've got the NCAA saying, oh, you know what? We're investigating the problem I have with all of this when the NCAA's perspective is and some of this is for legal reasons. Everybody else's acknowledging the idea that payers are being played. It is the eight hundred pound gorilla in everybody's room that follows the sport and the NCAA. Continues to turn a blind eye like it doesn't exist, and that has to change. Something has to be done about the issue of paying players. You cannot stand on the sidelines while everything happens and simply say, college is better or we're looking at it, they have to make a move and it's gotta be soon or they lose all credibility. It's a really tough situation. My villain is Derek Jeter, Derek decided to dismantle the Marlins beloved homerun sculpture out in left center field knows tearing it down and putting it outside the stadium at three zero five every afternoon. It will. The flamingos will world the Marlins will spin. The fountains will spray because Miami is in the three zero five area code with. Here's the, here's the really absurd thing. Jeeter's replacing the sculpture that everybody in Miami loves Rio in four hundred places for fans to stand and have a beer. So we're replacing something that people love. It's very Miami with more empty seats. Can I say. Is that wrong. It doesn't look like Yankee Stadium. You hire a Yankee to take over the team. You're not going to keep the kitsch. And of course the Rockies had on their Twitter feed the Rockies had actually photo shopped Homer in there right field. I don't know if we have a shot of it, but. There we go trying it on for size. But anyway, very upset. Upset, not in Dallas, but outside of Dallas because it's something that happened? Yes. My villain is Conor McGregor for his football toss. How. Looking very much like manning here. Is unclean. I have. Because where was the preparation for this? I know what you're from Ireland. I know that you have hurling there and you have soccer there and you have rugby there and you don't have oblong. But again, preparation is key preparation opportunity here, and instead of rising to the challenge, that's what we got for Conor McGregor, and I found it embarrassing for him and people. Our dose clarity just explode. He does next up. We've got a lot more to come. Anthony anthem fit for a Queen and a Halloween costume. I promise you will love. Now you're going to love it. You're all going to buy. You know you're going to by Geico, presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects visit.

Last time, Jeremy and other class act. My hero this week guy. I've known all my life fifty years ago this week. Bob Beamon broke the world record in the long jump by twenty two inches jumped twenty nine hundred two and a half inches eight point, nine meters. It is still the Olympic record. Fifty years later still the second longest jump ever recorded in competition only surpassed Mike Powell in one thousand nine hundred one in the world championships. It's an incredible record. Incredible moment of perfection. Beeman never jumped twenty nine again twenty eight or twenty seven again it is the singular feet. In the annals of traveling, feel lympics that mom years later that same Olympics say moment is well, John Carlos Smith raising a fist, Kate. My heroes are the Charlotte Hornets for restoring their court in a way that makes all ninety kids feel tremendously excited. Now you guys take a look at this time lapse about it. Now, the horn is just went really bad way with their uniforms. We didn't get to see the full court. It looks exactly like they did in the ninety s back with grandma playing for them and Alonzo Mourning those colors logo. Thank you. Thank you. That's right. I went away from that. So looks like we have some time left. Let me talk about my hero. You know there is someone in Philadelphia who came to fast. Gritty and everybody. That's my hero costumes.
