93: Find What Tickles the Soul - burst 03

"I think a lot of I think a lot of the, you know, at a certain point, I think we reach a place where, you know, listen, I don't need any more character. Life can take it easy on me now. And so I think I had a lot of the grit again just rural Tennessee and especially rural Tennessee where I was, I mean, I wasn't in the absolute deep, deep, deep, deep, deep Woods, but in the 70s and Tennessee where I was out by Hendersonville and gallatin, not like it is today. There was not a whole lot around. So I had quite a bit of what we would call character building and grid just growing up in a single parent home. By the time I got to Los Angeles, the LA part was just trying to build a career in an exceedingly difficult profession where I didn't have I didn't have any nepotism. I didn't have anything, I didn't show up here with anything on my side for lack of a better phrase. Yeah. Well, national was a totally different city back then in the 70s than it is now. I mean now it's the home and hard of a lot of productions, both movies and radio and television. That was not happening way back then in the same way. Now it's Nash Vegas. First of all, it's the number one bachelorette weekend destination in the south. It's number one, even more so than Atlanta. And number two, I mean, yeah, my mother was a country singer, but there's a very famous train station Alan in Nashville called union station that actually country songs have been written about it. It's beautiful. They refurbished it. When I was in high school, it was boarded up in dilapidated. So yeah, you didn't go past, you didn't go past 20th or 21st street towards first street to downtown. When I was a kid or you were looking for trouble and that would be just past Vanderbilt. So it's a very different city now, yes. Yeah. As I say right now, I mean to Nashville and there are many areas that you would stay out of. I mean, it's a totally grown up city and it's safe. It's prosperous. It's really become uptown. Whereas it used to be a hole to begin with. You are correct. There were distinctly places you did not go. That is correct. And now it is. It's just, it's just blown up in the last 15, 20 years. Unbelievable. Yeah. For sure. So do you remember any stories along the way that you can tell the audience? About that journey? Several of them depends on which ones we can allow on air. No, I think we, when we tend to use the word journey, doctor leica, we, a lot of times, as a country that we're very result oriented and I respectfully understand that certainly as an athlete, your result oriented, taking tests where result oriented, and so when we look at journeys, sometimes we wind up just looking at the end of like, oh my gosh, that person is so and so they've gotten to it doesn't matter what industry it is. And so when I tend to look at some of those years, I tend to look back at some of the moments when I should have looked at myself and gone, what the hell are you doing? And one of the key ones for me would have been what I chose to go to Atlanta for two years. I won an event in New York. And I could have gone to New York, but similarly, New York back then, Manhattan back then is not the Manhattan you see today. I mean, people who have not seen Times Square from a perspective of the early 80s to where it is today, Times Square was a place after one or 2 o'clock in the morning, you would just get killed. And so I had been there and for this event and as a guy who grew up in the rural south and who also was a golfer, I didn't really see myself hanging out in Manhattan trying to haul my sticks on the subway somewhere to go play golf. So I chose Atlanta, but I also went to Atlanta with a very old car, $200 in my pocket, and the only person that knew I was coming was the gal who was to be my agent. So I had to I slept in my car for three days in this abandoned Sears parking lot. That is in really upscale Buckhead at the time. It was just this big abandoned building. And it was kind of downhill and there was behind the building thing and I thought, oh, that seems safe. And I literally slept in my car for three days, and then my agent had a client that was in the catering business. And she had a couple of kids that they had moved out. She was an empty nester. And she was kind of a whack a doodle. She might have been kind of a functioning alcoholic. She was funny. And she didn't live that far down peachtree. And I rented a room from her for $50 a week. For about 6 or 7 months and then one of her neighbors was a lawyer and he knew somebody who worked at this really fancy restaurant downtown and he helped get me a job. And once I had a job for 6 or 7 months, I had enough money to finally move out and get my own place. So that's the beginning of a journey right there. That is the beginning of a journey and how did you get motivated? A lot of things were stacked against you. You know, a lot of things, you know how many actors try and never meet their dreams. How did you stay motivated during that process? You know, that becomes the intriguing part about that question for me, which ironically, I've asked a number of people on my own myself. Is we get into the we go the direction in my opinion of nature versus nurture. And I'm someone who believes, I don't think that it's 50 50 personally as a guy who was almost a psychology double major. I do believe we're a little more nurture than we are in nature personally. I think our environment of how we grow up has a little bit longer lasting effect on us and maybe the nature part of us remains a little more a little more hidden, but not always. I think that the way I grew up with just a sister and a mother who was not home very much and was sort of a latchkey kid who learned a lot on his own and had to grow up pretty fast. I think there was just a nurtured part of me that quitting wasn't really in my vocabulary. I don't know if you want to put words to something like that such as stubborn or cocky or defiant or I don't know. It doesn't much really matter. Even just going to the event that I went to in New York that I won, we didn't have any money for me to go to that. I literally had to go around and raise the money to be able to even go on that trip and when I wanted and that's a trophy that sits right

Shopping Malls (MM #4048)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. The way we shop is changed so much over the years. In my younger years, it was going to the shopping center with all the parking spaces and you'd basically have to go from store to store outside in the cold, exposed to the elements in the late 60s into the 70s and 80s, the shopping mall became the big thing, but as time wore on, people began to turn away from the shopping mall. When I started coming to national in the 1980s, the shopping malls that were here are pretty much all closed now. But recently, the one that used to be the big daddy of them all here in Nashville, which closed down in the early 2000s, has been bought by the city. And what once was Hickory hollow mall then became global mall at the crossings, is now going to become, well, a little bit of everything. There will be a school in the former Macy's. Part of them all will become part of Vanderbilt university's medical center. And who knows what else is going to be? I wonder what happened to the shopping mall and why it was so important for such a short time and then gone almost as quickly. The mall culture of the 1980s and 90s is now long gone. And sometimes when you try to tell young people about it, they kind of look at you and stare. They don't quite understand.

Nursing (MM #4039)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. The nursing profession is one of the most stressful, sometimes frustrating jobs, even though it can be very rewarding at times. But a recent court case here in Nashville is changing all the thought process for a lot of people in nursing because it's causing them to reevaluate why they do what they do. And is it worth doing what they do? Here in Nashville the former Vanderbilt nurse was found guilty of criminally negligent homicide based on a lethal dosage of the wrong medication. This isn't anything to do with the pandemic. It goes back to 2017, where a local nurse accidentally killed a 75 year old patient because she administered the wrong medication. Courts went in and wanted to find her guilty of reckless homicide, the jury came back with a lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide. We've already had one nurse come out in Nashville, resigning her position because of this particular case. And while we're not seeing the numbers grow yet, nurses around the country are paying attention to what happens, because just one mistake, possibly yes, could kill a person, but more importantly than that, could put them in jail. And that's scary.

Speaking Of Logos (MM #4021)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason yes, I was talking about the new logo for Vanderbilt university, but they got me thinking about other logo questions I've had recently. Watching a lot of the NCAA tournament this year don't know why particularly. And I've noticed every uniform has multiple logos on them now. The NASCAR you got logos all over the uniform. Everybody's used to that. In the NBA, we now have one corporate sponsor, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been good year because they're nearby. A lot of teams have different sponsors. I think FedEx is on the Memphis Grizzlies uniforms. But this year in the NCAA, you've got the NCAA logo. You've got the logo of the manufacturing company, whether it's Nike or Adidas or whoever is making the uniform. And then you've got the American flag or some kind of logo on there. And one of the schools, I think, has their 75th anniversary logo. And then you've got the team conference logo. So you've got four logos right about the stirrup area and all these uniforms. And I got to wonder why. And what's next? Advertising logos on these uniforms? I understand wanting to brand a school, but I don't understand why the NCAA needs their logo on the uniform. I'm not making a lot of sense to me. The American flag logo, wonderful idea, but do we really need that?

New Logo (MM #4020)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason we've had a little bit of a controversy here at Nashville over the last couple of days and it's not that big a deal. Vanderbilt university has rebranded themselves with a new logo. They're still the Vanderbilt commodores and they're still a great school, but what used to be what they call the star V, which is just basically a block V with a star around it is now gone for a different style V a lot of people are saying it looks like the University of Virginia logo, which is a V with crossed swords, or it looks like Villanova's V logo. I don't know how you brand a particular letter, although with that said, my company intensity media has used the I with an exclamation point as branding for 20 years. But for a major university to rebrand everything they do after so many years of using the same logo, was kind of shocking to a lot of people. That has got a lot of people upset. Now, of course, if you're a Vanderbilt alum, you probably have more of an allegiance to the old logo. But for Vanderbilt, the only thing that's changed, not the colors, not the people, just the logo. I don't care one way or the other doesn't bother me, but you don't notice it quite as much now because when you always saw that V with a star, you knew what people were talking about.

And maybe they're tired of being typecast or detroit as one especially if it's quirky right i mean especially if it's like you said you can do a thing that most the average of the population can't can't do has never tried. Yeah i think. I think sometimes we wanna just surprise other people. Maybe even surprise ourselves. We just get you know. Life is too short In that same to why not. And there's just this empowering like you know when you learn that saver that champagne bottle. You're learning to whistle. I would love to do that. Whistle the way. And i think you instantly be higher of all as a As a as a gym teacher. 'cause like coach because that was all that would just it just feels Like a sense of renewal to me. You know you're not just this older person. Moving through live trudging through your comfort zone. Closed off the exits. You're kinda like stuck you're holding pattern Funny little sort of buzz phrases online that you know nothing nothing. Nothing grows in a key in your comfort zone. So they which i felt like is you know is true. That's that's where the growth comes. Speaking of words another word i like Which means novice neophyte And that actually means newly planted. And that's sort of the way i felt about all these these things i was starting that there were like little gardens and i was i was sort of tending them and they were. You know some some moving along better than others some. I forgot to visit for a while. The weeds had grown up But but it brought me delight to kind of revisit these things and see how much i'd come along since the last time and just to see all that growth i love that and i. I think you're so right to that as you get older. It certainly makes you feel younger to learn new things to discover things about yourself instead of feeling set in your ways and I on this podcast. Love to talk about neuro plasticity and the idea that we can actually change our brains and who we are and how we reacted things by being intentional.

"vanderbilt" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain

"They could do. They could do stupid things and not not feel bad about it. Well there's also a real pride and i. I've mentioned this before. And i mentioned this with with justin like when i learned how to play the clarinet as a kid. I was so proud of being able to play. Even the simplest thing that i would play it over and over and over again and as adult trying to learn the guitar. I wasn't proud of hot cross buns. I needed to play something much better immediately. And i never allowed myself that that time to get better because it was too frustrating to me to not be as great as i was at the end of playing the clarinet after ten years or however long it took me right to be great so think that stands out to in something like like singing. There is a subjectivity to certain artistic endeavors. That i think allows people to say for instance. Whitney houston is different from me. And i will never be whitney houston so i can be in the middle or i suck right. There's like a 'cause. I actually do think there's a god given sort of and i'm not religious but that sort of idea of like maybe idiot savant is a better term or some sort of way that like there are like mozart or people who sit down at a piano and somehow can remember all the things they just heard him. Play it right back. Like there's there's some of that play with music and with certain people who can write and perform with almost no with almost no training but then there's that middle group of people that are all great and they have to get better and learn and use the skills to get better but then there are people who really suck like. They really can't hear that they're nowhere near the note. Do you believe that those people even could be taught proficiency there certain things that it's just not going to happen for you. Yeah this is. This is a very real concern because i hear it a lot when i asked people if if they'd be interested in singing the said no i'm tone deaf and there's been research on this and they've actually looked into your the number of people that are technically tone-deaf like as a medical condition. It's extra small. I mean maybe something like one out of a hundred people or two out of one hundred people but based on what people tell you it sounds like fifty out of one hundred people tone deaf and as i mentioned the book. It doesn't help by the way that you know some of the songs we are. Actually we actually do sometimes sing in public like happy birthday. Or maybe the star spangled banner are incredibly difficult songs. Sit with their. So you have this condition where we barely sing that every time we do it. Everyone does it badly because we're doing this challenging song that we haven't practiced and you know it. Just it's a self sort of vicious cycle there but Yeah there are certainly you know but there are people yes. Some people have a have a leg up and whether that's a better ear for music which itself could be trained however but you know there may be their voices just distinctive. I mean then then you kinda get the Quality versus quantity. But i think I'm a firm believer that that everyone can get better. I 'cause i just just quantitatively. I have on my iphone. An app called It's called pitch perfect And it has you. Has you scales sing scales into the phone..

"But i had never thought about the number of parents who basically dropped a kid off at ballet or gymnastics or whatever and then sit there for an hour detailing on their phone while somebody else's learning this new skill and trying this new thing and the parent is just kind of killing that our. Maybe they do some work. Maybe they have a conference call. Maybe they run an errand but that kind of visual of of the two different stages of life one is. This growth period in one is stagnant was really fascinating idea of of what kind of spurred you into thinking. Why do i keep dropping her off to learn all these things while. I'm never doing that. Yeah and i just saw that time. It's your time and i. of course. I was usually the person like sitting there just on my phone while she swimming While she's doing this. And these were things that i had not mastered so in some cases i didn't even know how to do at all and i found and i just found. It was strange that not that may people made. This conceptual leap. I have talked. People know very interesting people a woman actually in the chicago area. Who was taking your kid to karate classes and this was the thing that was only for kids but then the instructor at went had his idea to start like a mom's karate during the day so it took a little bit of courage for her to get up even to do that But then she. She found that she was loving karate than the instructor actually canceled that class and he kind of combine them all soon. She was doing karate with her kid neighbor. Even doing they're even doing bouts sparring And kind of the same dynamics like you'd think there'd be a size mismatch whatever but but karate like chess is one of those areas where kids can do you know as well as adults they even it finished with her actually going to the national some sort of national championships and actually winning something and her son being in the audience which i thought was a great yeah great reversal of the usual thing. Which is you know. Parents taking their kids all over ed. Not that there's anything wrong with obviously taking your kids to soccer and watching them win. But why does it have to be one. One-sided why do we just give ourselves permission to essentially give up. I mean you can be productive. Parents still take care of your kid and have tufts have time for the stuff on the side for your own. But i would think that like the yogi we're talking about you know a lot of people never get to that stage because they have this Sort of interior fears and voices Telling them that they're not going to be good enough. That's too late. They're not the right sort of person that does that. They're not talented And those are the sorts of things..

"A. h. terms and conditions apply. So you mentioned your daughter. And she was the impetus. I think for this latest book beginners. Which so i had This yogi on. Who is sort of a mogul bow in the yoga world justin stanley and she's known in part for kind of breaking down the barriers of expectation. For what you look like if you are someone who teaches in does yoga. She's a heavy set black woman. I should say fat because that's the word chooses for herself. She's a fat queer black woman who found herself surprised to learn that other people were surprised that she did yoga. She thought this is the thing that everybody should do. But she started in grad school. And in the podcast. She talked to me about the idea that she needed to. In the moment of taking this hot hot yoga class walking in there decide. Did i just pay thirty dollars to talk shit to myself for an hour about how much i suck or am. I just going to let myself try. And if i let myself try. And i suck and i fail. What's the worst that can happen. And how we don't do that later in life. And she and i got to talking about how we're also comfortable being proficient that failure no longer feels like an option then we just stopped trying new things. And that's when somebody from my twitter suggested your book and then Out so perhaps. They have a google alert on the name of the book. Very good on them and here we are. And i'm fascinated to talk to you about this concept because after that interview with jessica really started me thinking there's a. There's a nike ad. That's out right now. That as a bunch of kids trying sports and being bad at them and we so rarely glorify that instead we show the people who are the very best to have earned the sponsorships in our beating. Everybody and this nike ad sort of subverts. All of our expectations about what it is to try new to embrace the beginner stages and your daughter essentially having to learn all the things we learn in life is what is what inspired this real. Yeah absolutely. I mean she. She like most kids at age four. Let's say was still very much a beginner. Like a beginner life you that everything is new to her. And you know it's it's a wonderful time of just exploration and discovery so we were playing a game of checkers in a library and she saw this chessboard. She said well. That looks kind of relate. Cool like those little like knight figures and all the stuff and can we play that. I was like I don't actually know how So that was a very awkward moment for me Wonder what you know. Why did it never learn this this game. It's it's actually a little bit of intimidating game..

"vanderbilt" Discussed on Racing Rundown: A Horse Racing Podcast

"I talked about how this was going to give us. A clue are the alfred vanderbilt. I should say was going to give us a clue on the east coast. This will give us a clue on the west coast There are some very good horses in here. This race is even more wide open than the alfred. Vanderbilt is which is really hard to say because the alfred vanderbilt is a very wide open race. But you've got former grade one winners in here. Greatest stakes winners this year Cc rocket is a horse. I believe we gave ceesay rocket the mid year eclipse award for sprint. Because suzy rocket had won two races at oakland beating whitmore full time and but ceesay rocket is coming out of a loss albeit that was going a two-term mile at lonestar. So i'm really tossing that race in considering him. Brickyard ride has run very good races this year. And you know you look at former grade. One winners from last year dr shovel Great race last year in the del mar futurity collusion allusion reno huge race in this race last year. And you know he. He's the horse ultimately that i am going to go with and i don't like taking horses off huge layoffs like collusion illusionist. Coming off but a couple things allay my fears about that number. One sees one off a very similar to this going back to his time between the american pharaoh and his allowance race at santa nita in may of twenty twenty very similar. Layoff to what he's going to be coming off here. Hasn't run since the malibu stakes but again it's seven months approximately with that in eight months approximately. I don't care to do the exact math for but very similar layoffs. And the other thing that i'm really hoping for is there's a lot of speed signed on in here so i'm hoping that they go radioactive in the first quarter. First half this race and i can get collusion luge. Come late and pick up his second win in the bing crosby stakes another very wide. Open this is. You can make cake. Basically every single horse on the exception maybe one or two an on going against the grain usually usually fedral. that could likely Form up. I i i try to find a horse. That's gonna come. From behind like a collusion. Dr tribal cd rocket but i just really really like procured writing here earlier on in the year when he wanted to san carlos. I'm basically said he's thinking you know is the best spoon on the west coast navy. One of the best in the country. Of course he had to bad runs after that but is winning the doors. That was so nice last time out. He got a. It's as awful as say a better jockey away better jock more experienced jockey as a way better idea of how to ration out a horse with as much speeded brickyard right has out a ration. Mount super nicely. I mean he's shown that and his winning the thors echo. Last time out e- crossword was so much left in him too. You can see on the gallup out. His horse had plenty left to give. So i i just really liked it and racist. We've seen him being able to sustain extremely quick fractions and still finish off the race. Beautifully most notably saint carlson twenty one and three and for the opening quarter forty-three in four for the half and there was a ridiculous numbers to put up and even more to win by oaten links in almost drawing. Clear your company at the same time. So i really liked brickyard ride. I don't think the practices are what will get him on. But it is worth noting. This is probably the toughest race. He's ever had to run in with you. Know great one winners scattered all over here. So it'll be interesting. I know it's rockets. In the most probably the most particle pick to say this but it also feels like spot to try and beat him in. And that's why i'm gonna go go against them with procure and now that we've finished the saturday races. I do want to turn it over to erica. Since he will not be able to give out picks Since we have not received those entries for the two greatest stakes races at one at saratoga unwanted telemark for sunday august. I of those being the amsterdam and the clement hirsch respectively. We're not gonna be able to give picks when the entries are finalized. So i will give him the floor to just talk about what he thinks based on what we have now with nominations and further races what he thinks of those two races and then after he's done i will have picks once those entries are finalized and we have the poster on everything. Yeah i mean. These are two excellent races and increases that no matter how they the under drawing out I think they're they're basically down to two horses apiece Starting with the amsterdam it's jackie's warriors. Strain the clock oliver. We want as long as jackets for your doesn't do what he did. Last time he gets out of the gates his time sets open in a great position. He should be able to to run a really big race again in. Get the job done there. He's absolutely better than nineteen venturing. The clock on an even playing field. So as long as that's what we get. It should be jackie where we don't love saratoga too. So the that could help him out. A lot of the west coast. I'd want to get to horse race. As time goes by verse. She there's the devil. I do think she does. The devil will have the edge You know she. She's proven to be able to take race anywhere as time goes by able to beat up on pretty weeks fields and even last time we saw her after battle.

"Is actually a strange thing and it takes a little while it does being as blind as we both are. You're wearing something. And i was glasses. Where only for forever. Because again i think when i was a kid there were like well. We can only have a hard lens. And when i was a kid i could not get a contact of my i well. That was the second challenge for me. Yeah i remember. It was an you know when you're starting to like sense that the very patient optician is starting to get annoyed and then you have the flops of like you're on stage or something took me ages forever. My mom like because. I remember the first time we got context. We tried them out when i was thirteen. Because i had been wearing glasses to second grade. we tried about when i was thirteen and my mom had to put them in my eyes every morning before school. Wow like whole we'd have to. I'd have to be awake thirty minutes early to get context. How long would the process be. Probably thirty minutes. Getting to context was it like we did did ever go and just easy and then the other one was a strong once in a while and it was it was it was a nightmare period. So i did it for a week in the news. Like no one's going to get classes again. Yeah and i never mind glasses. I still like to wear them all the time i think. Even if i had contacts like rarely available in my exact prescription. I would still wear glasses a lot. I now go back and forth. Because for many years i only wear contacts and then i had my glasses got banged up and they never got another one and then was one of those situations then. It was wearing a pair of context too long and it actually started to break down in the my. I know i didn't know because i'm i'm bad at like there's a lot of things i'm good at and keeping track of and there's certain life things that i'm just like. Oh right yeah whoops you know that kind of thing like thank god for auto pay and things like that totally and now try to alternate them. Because i forgot that it's not good for your eyes to just have A lens on them all the time. 'cause about your is breathing or or whatever and so after getting a bout of dry now alternate so when i'm reading especially but it takes a minute to shift over so i can. I can finally put in the context of myself now but like the first like few weeks of me doing drag with contacts kayla had put them in every time well and then also. There's the potential to get makeup in them. And then it's like i always do context. That's the first thing i do like. Yes nigga shower context even before moisturizers. Its context i because i always my eyes is will just water. Yes out better than the put anything on before the contact that makes sense yet. How long has your make up a regimen. Had all you like to from ready to like from not in drag to walk out the door three hours like that's how much time i give myself like that. I know like if. I have three hours to get ready. I know i'll be able to do in time. Like i won't have to be rushed because the i fucking hate being rushed. Yeah well it ruins everything. I hate it ruins my entire vibe. The rest of my night is is is is a rough one in my mushed. There's no pulling back from that. Once you're in the pool you can't get out. I always myself three hours. Yeah that's good. It's always good to give yourself extra shaving. Shaving showering getting face getting.

"Time i was on the way back from a liquid lock in which is something that churches did in arkansas at a place called wild river country. Which is like a big waterpark. Hawaiian churches would all come together and they would rent it out from like ten to like four. Am wow yeah. And so all these youth groups from different churches would all be wild over country on the way back. We were on a big church van and my friend was playing it on the radio. And she played that and She played with more time and she played. What was j.lo's for song. If you had my love that those are the two songs that i remember hearing britney just took me to a whole new level and then like it was. She's my first cd. She was my first baby. When we're ties my first everything. wow now. how many times have you seen her in concert. I've only seen twice while my parents hated her really. My parents are like crazy religious. Okay and they are always. Were always telling me that. I was putting a used her as an idol in the false idols in front of god. Wow do like her more than jesus. She has catchier songs she was. She was everything she was like. The britney's like like making me feel okay about my sexuality at such like in my formative years were she was. She was at for me. she was at. She was my introduction medina I had no idea who. Madonna was until brittany until the kiss now. Not even the kiss it was brittany are madonna did a t shirt. She did want a brittany t shirts. Some of the promo pigs for the music album on okay and so. That's because of that. It was on the brittany site. Yeah and that's how. I found out who madonna was because i bought the music album. Which is i think my. It's what i keep saying. My favorite. And then i go away. I do love this other one. That album was the music. Music is one of my favorite albums to listen to. It's a skip album for me. It's great from start to finish right whereas confessions grape isaac. I love confessions spaghetti. Veterans is amazing. Confessions is her last great album for me. Personally i got. I listened to everything with you. But after i listen to music and i started like learning and researching madonna. Then i got the immaculate collection. And that's when madonna became such a huge deal for me. You must be true through there. Oh my god yes. And of course i mean. That's one of the greatest music documentaries ever. And i think my favorite scene might be warren. Beatty really camera is that i love that because it's so he's so pissed off role at its greenwich. So real right exactly. I mean there's so many moments in that. But that's the first thing when someone mentions warren. Beatty i mean and i love his filmography. That's the first thing. I think.

"To vanderbilt that is of course the only sport that they ever win anything in so good for them our friends at buffalo owing added scurry out and scurry back in felt like maybe i was not being as gracious as i should but i had to come back on air our friends at buffalo wild wings have dropped off today's delectable treats they're being open now to see what flavors they are but when you don't care as much about what we're eating as what you could eat so later on in the hour you will have a chance to win thirty boneless wings too at buffalo wild wings Dow, it's coming up later this hour parmesan garlic. What am I fades? And mystery flavor. Ooh. Cheesecake bites. like i said you don't care about what we're going to eat i'm happy about it but you can win buffalo wild wings coming up a little bit later this hour two eight six zero four six that is the text line if you would like to jump aboard and way in good talk in the first hour of course the big story locally today is that president trump has issued a memorandum that would allow service academy athletes to defer their military sent key points they said sorry sorry military commitment there's a lot going on in the studio right now i'm a little distracted their military commitment to pursue a professional sports career and i am absolutely on board with that idea and president trump said as much in his memorandum these men and women only have a finite amount of time to pursue a professional sports career they have decades upon decades to serve in the military and it's just a matter of practicality to allow them to defer their military commitment It's not telling them that they get out of it. Just they don't have to go in immediately. Now who made up the rule immediately? like do i get a day off or go right in but i think that president trump made the right call here and i do think that air force along with navy and army will reap some sort of of benefit from this because now if you are among the most exceptional athletes and you feel like your life alternately will have a higher calling then you can go to these military academies and you can have the career that you will always want it and isn't that what institutions of higher learning military kademi or otherwise are meant for to be able to put you in a position to pursue the career if you went to c._c. and we're business major could you not go try to make it big in a band for a few months for a year or so before you get into business i mean that's my that's my biggest thing is who says you have to go in immediately why is that a thing you know not everyone is as fortunate as other people are when it comes to being immediately placed in their career of choosing some people have to go round yes the air force academy provides that for graduates and that's great but just because you go to school for something that is your oltman goal doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to explore other avenues and we're not talking like you get this deferment so you can you know wander around going to open try outs we're talking about like tucker bone in griffin jacks and all these guys are drafted straight into the league and that's and that's the thing is we're gonna have to wait and see what the conditions are if the if the pentagon and the dod approved what are the conditions because like the obama administration was you have to be on a roster you have to make the roster like jalen robina he got drafted you would have had to make the fifty three man in order to defer his service right is that same thing going to be in this one or is it going to be a little bit different where it's like yeah you can you know you can make you know go to try outs you know we have to wait and see exactly what these conditions are going to be yeah i think so because i do think even though it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for somebody who because not everyone is majoring in air force right like some people there are people that are in there majoring in in in management that are majoring in quantum mechanics or whatever there's air force offers a lot of majors that other institutions do so to me it's not the worst thing in the world if somebody says wide really liked to start a business right out of college i don't think it's the worst thing in the world but i but i do think when it comes to the professional sports there has to be there has to be something in place you can't just declare yourself And that's what the what was it, the elite athlete program, the high performance, whatever they called it that was, what that was for? We're going to determine. Whether you qualify for this, which would allow you to defer. So there's. wiz is right you're going there's going to have to be something in place in order to keep people who just feel like trying out sports and it's like well no and it's being is going to be when it comes to hockey and baseball like the you know you have to be a certain level if you're if you're going to your service like if you're going to the rocky mount vibes can you defer your service where we see karate right ready is at the believe at the same level he's in rookie ball i don't think he went too low a. right off the bat so there's already something that exists with the air force that allows it i know i'm not sure army and navy have the same thing maybe they do maybe they don't but we're in colorado springs i don't care about what they're doing i care about what air force is doing exactly so it exists but now it's now it's The law of the land, you know, is what Donald Trump. class athlete program you have tried to get into and then that's when nick ready had to go having to go through i think he's still trying to go through that right i don't think he's officially been deferred yet yeah tucker bone was place for the switchback going through the same thing but now he signed with the switch backs has contract in place in that should So yeah keep him with the switch backs and allow him to defer believe. So I. i think this is i think this is a good thing and this is what institutions of higher learning are supposed to do i know it's different i know it's not the same as going to cow berkeley or see you or whatever but still at the end of the day it's an institution of higher learning is to get these young men and women ready for their career chosen career path and if it's more practical for them to pursue the sports side before the military side than i have no problem with it our poll question today is that as well basically do you agree with the memorandum that president trump has sent out and we'll see how the military response to their commander in chief because The they over Obama administration put something in place like this, like, we'll said and the military overturned it. Yeah, so DOD it wasn't Trump. the dod came out and the dod the dod said no yes so that's true but for me one thing i would like to see in there is that you have to help with recruiting during your off time i all i and that's what i wanna see that in there and we got there was a tweet earlier that i saw and i will correctly attributed to the right person here momentarily but just while it's top of mind and my response to because he was talking about some kind of reservists stat it or whatever and i and i'm not going to pretend that i understand everything with the military mo my bottom line is to your point whatever they can do to help out the military branch of military while still making sports the priority that's my thing they need to make sports their priority in order to have a real chance at playing in the n._f._l. major league baseball the olympics whatever they need to make their sport their job that is what they do but if they can help out a cruising office on the weekend or i don't know whatever that looks like that's fine but that has to be that that's the argument that we're having here because there are guys who you know are on like reserve reserve retired retire reserve military list or whatever chris guilty whose strength coach with the packers now he was on that list for while i believe ben garland was to the broncos yet i just want these people to be able to make to put the military side on the back burner while they pursue it if there's a way that they can help out then that's great and i'm and i think that there's a lot of hours in the day and you can help out but the Way that it is mostly in place. Now is not really. disposes the side gig and he can't be it can't be we cover professional athletes it's not their side gig you have to let your life be consumed by it and if you can find some time or if the military can kind of help you volunteer whatever then that's great but sports has to be the priority for these young men and women or they're not giving themselves a legitimate shot of achieving their dream or following that career two eight six zero four six we'll continue take your thoughts on president trump's memorandum and like i said i gotta talk a little bit about this m._l._b. all-star election day did you vote in it and do you like it better wheels and i both voted but we have yet to say if we like it better than the old way will discuss that next.
