"Training's been shut down and we just continue on you know where I stand I'm sorry for so I found it very introducing reading on this before I came in which I'm doing prep work that's what I should be doing first time ever the blue jays nobody even tested positive somebody showed symptoms and they shut it down and so what wasn't clear to me about some of these facilities was there testing on the way in because that's the big thing right like the university Houston last week had to shut down the workouts because six guys were showing symptoms but they never tested them on the way in and so I wonder with these baseball facilities our guys actually being tested on the way in they're in there that I just have to ask you you know when you say sports has to continue is that for our I'll say are not yours but are entertainment purposes only is there or is this for financial gain is just to keep people employed because I know you're not talking about the millionaires and billionaires why is it so important for you to have baseball back let's say or NBA or NHL back right before we start football why is that so important it's a great question and it's not important I just think I I don't make it sound like it's important I mean I don't was adored you would be risking people's health but go ahead I don't know what the difference is between Zion Williamson or who's the hot and NHL players Sidney Crosby I don't think I don't understand what isn't it they they're getting tested on the way into these bubbles they have access to great medical staff they can easily be quarantine they can easily be taken care of I don't want to play under those conditions have you seen some of the rules that they have for the NFL and the NBA guys and that's what cracks me up watch the play like that it was funny you know I saw justice Winslow say yesterday the NBA doesn't care about our health I've criticized Adam silver but a lot of things the one thing you can't say is they don't care about your health what are you gonna throw away a deck of cards after you use it when you can't wear a headset after your plane but while you're playing video games you can't tell me the NBA doesn't care about your health now the question becomes again Arnie it's very simple all arms I I don't think it's quote unquote important I just don't understand why we're making exceptions for athletes who are universally in shape not in a in a health risk group and we're also telling anybody by the way that doesn't want to come play that they don't have to come play and so my whole thing is what why are we making exceptions for them when I go to target today and there's a hundred fifty people working their **** off that don't get access to testing every day that don't have the best medical professionals that can't easily be quarantine same with the waitress at my restaurant I I don't understand what the differences well I'll tell you first of all what do you do to keep the whole all of United States unemployed Erin is that is I mean is that why is Williamson exception you have that's two to ten minutes Sir why he thought if it was up to be that we would be playing sports they would be able to port that would they not be that that's when they'll be at a point I would say but shut it down well he's the the the players are set to lose one point two billion dollars if they do not come back this season I was from the owners making that type of money the player salary they've already made Moster salaries in the NBA are we talking about the NBA now you have I'm just talking about E. sports I don't even know what the hell sports we're talking about anymore Bobby marks from E. S. P. N. yeah said that in total two billion dollars of revenue would be lost which would include one point two billion in player salaries if they do not return this okay so that's with all the players who've already received most of salaries but you know what who cares about the money what what does the money have anything to do with this when you're told me what millionaires are going to lose the salary and what billionaires are gonna lose and profit because I don't give a damn literally just said the whole world can go unemployed you're asking NBA players to be unemployed because we were just because they make a million dollars as opposed to fifty thousand dollars they're allowed to one employee you yeah yeah yeah yeah that's exactly right that's exactly right not all of them all of them that is exactly right so you're noticing okay billionaires and millionaires make so much money I'm not worried about them no word about Mike trout is four hundred twenty million dollar contract okay I don't care about how much the players are making and it for you know if they don't have enough money in the billionaires I care about the folks like you said working at Walmart and you know working at target and work at the local diner they're the ones I got to be worried about don't compare those people you're sending them back to work we have to go back to work dozens I don't have to go back to work he's twenty one he's healthy I mean you might not be healthy no money into much McKinney but I'm I'm all of a sudden the back to work it just doesn't have to be a media can I wait why do I go to start the NBA now can I just say you know what I give up let's just wrap up it was just forget about the rest of the twenty what is it twenty twenty one season now and take the rest of the time off you got July and boom we're back for the next year in the camps in August they give you a month why can't we do that it is just another month but that that happened why is that why do we have to finish up this damn year what what are we going to do that so you're saying bring them back instead of bringing them back for games on July thirtieth bring them back for training camp for next year on August first is that we doesn't I thought that's what it sounds like you just I'm trying to buy time here I'm not trying to buy some time okay so instead of making a finish up this year give me some time give me the rest of August maybe participate number I I I need time I I I kids in the back down to what happens if there's not a very nineteenth it's June nineteenth and you and I can't play basketball as I say it's going to be any safer on December first when we may be in the middle of a second way and it may not and that's all you have to ask you about that that's my whole point you have to go back at some point go back in a safe bubble environment where there's so much testing if your argument is just we can't come back till till there's a vaccine I don't agree with that but it is it is that it's at least a logical argument but to push it off for three months knowing that we probably won't have a vaccine it doesn't even make sense or not even three months worth in the June I'm talkin I I what would start next season well for what the NBA that that will start in.

"Larson who wants who wants to mandate at least follow the Bill to require two state agencies who happen to have football teams, Texas university of Texas to play their game on an annual basis that to say the legislature king get involved in sports when they want to when you think about a law. That says if you're gonna compete in a major five conference with with public institutions in Texas like Texas Tech, like university of Texas university, Houston etcetera that yours athletics departments at private schools are not the whenever somebody files. A public information requests. Then you've got to you've got to meet that request that you are no longer outside the bounds of public information requests. In talking about like TCU's and the Baylor's of the island. I mean, the controversies at Baylor, for instance, in how if you know, in my view had something like that happened at Texas Tech you could fill the lower bowl with the hard copies of requests. It would come in from media agencies. But Baylor there's been a lot of talk about art browse here and there and the coaching search, but nobody knows what happened where are you on that? Do you think that they ought to pony up on public information's at providence petitions does that give a leg up to others on a competition basis? Well, I'm on comfortable with with the private schools that able to hide behind that. I think that that's obviously when your institution, and you get money from the state to operate that's kind of the rules UP play by it it. It's tricky. Because in one way, I mean, if they're not taking public funds that they should have to play by the same rules. But if we're going to speak to if we're going to speak to the fact that does that it helped TCU and Baylor did that did that help Baylor not help to us? But that allow Baylor to operate the way they did for many many years, which was a bit sketchy. I think you know, that that's that's I think fair assumption based on people not being able to get into business, you know, in figure out exactly what happened. And why happened how it happened and all that stuff? So because you know, schools they the providence petitions they had behind that a lot. But you just can't you can't they're not bound. To have to tell you anything. They don't want to that part is tricky when it comes to the controversies that we've seen certain places I look forward to. Eventual state Senator Chris level fouling Bill, the private schools are no longer exempt. There you go. Thanks for crossing the fence with me there, buddy. And have a great time on your trip in.

"So there's a lot of changes that happened as rule to coming down here a lot of growth, and the reason that they wanted this center was primarily astronaut training was it was at Michigan troll. What were the primary reasons? Well functions. The space task group was tach to the Langley research center and. They wanted is separate center for humans baseline it. Just really wasn't humans. Absolutely. And so they needed a new center there were discussions about where it put mission control. They weren't. Sure, Michigan troll was actually going to come here to JC initially. But they convince the administrator to bring it here. But yes, they needed a place to train astronauts. They needed a place to put our engineers, and they wanted the astronauts and engineers to work closely together on things like interfaces. We also needed things like you. You realize we're close to the water. They wanted to bring in space craft by barge. Houston was a great place to do that. They also needed a convenient airport. We have an airport just up the road. They also want an universities. They wanted to live in a in a place that was full of vibrant, cultural community Houston. Definitely was. So, you know, Houston had a lot of perks. All right at what point did in the program. Maybe it was when we decided we were going to the moon that the lunar curation facility started coming into play that this was going to be the place where move rocks would be right because it was all focused on the human. Yeah. Man to the moon and return him safely before the decade out. And there was nothing in there about and while he's gonna pick up rocks and bring them back. It was all about the humans and getting back safely. But you know, as the training progressed as as we went through mercury juvenile we get into Apollo and then people start planning for the actual surface excursion. Oh. When I was in aerospace engineering because I thought it was all about that cool flight back and forth to the moon in the space craft and the rockets, but really you have to ask yourself. Well, why are you going right? This was obviously, very political geopolitical driven thing. But but nowadays, you know, we ask ourselves. Why are we going back to the moon or Mars, and it's all about what you're gonna do on the surface? And if you don't really have any plans to do something on the surface while then why go on first place, but it was reversed during the Apollo. So we are we were going to the moon. So since we are going to what are we gonna do when we get there? And the obvious thing was geologic field work. So NASA brought in geo. Scientists also worked with the United States Geological Survey USGS to train the astronauts in geologic feel work what to look for how to employ long live scientific Instrum. That's and then they decide. Okay. Well, we're bringing these rocks back in there on this moon with no atmosphere, no oxygen interact with Iraq. So any in you're bringing a Houston with the very, humid atmosphere. Lots of water in our atmosphere here. So what are the specification? What do we need to do to protect these rocks? And so a lot of work went into what we now have is the policy. Apple curation facilities. You mentioned you talked on Ryan Ziegler. He's running that. Now. So yeah, science was was very much. I won't say it's an afterthought. But it came later in the process of getting to the moon, and we're going to bring these rock Bax when he'd to protect them when he'd the science labs to understand the rocks. We did have Rice University university Houston, just right up the road, you know, and a lot of the early scientists came from those institutions, I don't know if you ever talking to Dr window Mendel, but he was here during a Pala. He grew up a Houston. Boy went to rice, then went out to Caltech. Well, I went to Caltech I any went to rise. But so, you know, we drew you talked about one of the draws for. Why would the manned spacecraft center be what we had these two university systems that we could pull from? So you know, the the lunar sample curation facility started being assigned..

"So there are business competitor so it's is just a very interesting story to work on i got a lot of questions let me start with this did he know before he got me society was gonna leave coaching that it was going to be to own a chickfila or is it he decided to step away and then looked at his options and that was the thing that came out you know they have a good family friend who owns some chick fil a's and they had asked about the business and so his wife had told me so twenty limiting gets fired from the as the head coach university houston after the two thousand fourteen season and he spent about fourteen months out she said she noticed a change in him because he'd spent so much time around the house at around his kids and he got to spend more time being being dad and you know going to dance recitals and going to fly you know coach them in flag football and going to basketball practice and soccer practice and all this other stuff that quite honestly as a coach and certainly as the head coach you don't have the time to do do and so i think that was when the seed was planted in his head and then they had you know he got a job with jeff brom who they went back to their days at louisville and their families are closed and he moved the family to bowling green kentucky and then obviously brom a year later from that got the purdue jobs so tony move and i think they ended up moving back to they finished out the school year but then i think the family moved back to houston so it's just you know it's kind of a challenging timing and then i don't think he found out for a while that you're going to get this opportunity because as i said the rates to land a chickfila franchise for pretty long odds so once that happened then they were able to kind of make this work and you know as i said in the story jeff ron told hey you know some for some reason he don't you want to come back to football you know you're just give me a call and i'm waiting for you paneth thing so you know it was a sweet story on that regard you know by the way this is.
