"Team once, let's listen to Vin Scully's call of it, the great Dodger announcer. Of course, the Braves were playing the Dodgers that night, right, Erin waiting deep in straightaway fastball high, Satterfield goes back to the pen instead. Yeah. What a marvelous moment for baseball, but a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia. What a marvelous moment for the country in the world. A black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep South for breaking a record of an all time baseball idol. I was reading a story about his career, and it said that it was difficult for him because he was in a Smaller market in the South. Just wanting what you ran into him and you were up in Philadelphia and then Chicago. Bigger cities, bigger markets. Did you experience the hate that he did? Well, I think the biggest thing it wasn't publicized as much until he did get close to, uh, Babe Ruth's record, But, you know, being in Milwaukee first on not being a flashy player like a maze or Clemente here, some of the other flashy players and then and then actually Post publisher. I think the policy wasn't as strong. But then he went to Atlanta and Turner of bought the team and Turner Broadcasting Company televised Ah, lot of games on TV, so this popularity had to becoming very popular. Interesting. Kevin Powell is in our sports office. Avery great to talk to you. I guess I don't really have necessarily. I'm doing great doing great. And not necessarily the specific question. But I just love hearing stories of former ballplayers about whether their teammates or opponents, I guess, just do you have any on field stories that you'd like to share or even off the field about Henry Aaron? Well, the biggest thing when it came to Wrigley Field, and, uh, I mean, he was a line drive power hitter, and you didn't have to hit the ball long to his out of Wrigley Field. You get up in the air, or even on the line with the ball jump out. There was a lot of players that myself Bill hands Katie Holtzman, which night he had our respect, because the fact that he couldn't make a mistake because you have a fastball up in the strike zone. He his eyes popped out. He didn't He wasn't about to take a fastball, right? Yes. So you said you held them to two home runs. Which of your teammates? Did he absolutely own. You know, you could tell names. You tell stories, but he had close to 10 off Tom Fever. I'm really fine Pitcher Hall of Famer, but, uh, can you hold still held him down. Kenny had a no hitter against Atlanta and And in the mid 70 so many, I just think that the respect you had for such a power hitter when you got him out, you consider yourself lucky. Kenny Holson was the home run hitter himself, right? You can't Can you have a pretty good ballplayer? Yes, I know that he was pretty proud of his home runs, and it went from time to time. Um, So can I ask you a question? Kind of curious, But Fergie thinks it is because you know, there's still Barry Bonds technically has the most home runs, but that's a whole nother conversation. Hank Aaron pre steroids era. How do you view Stats and and all that sort of thing. I know it could be quite controversial when it comes to people talking about that. And what Barry Bonds dated or did not do. How do you view who the real home run? King is in baseball? Well, you talked a lot of veteran players, and they still consider hang care the definite home run hitter than the World Series of being the world champion home run hitter, But you know Boston in a narrow where No players accused of taking certain things, but for hitting a 755 home runs. That was remarkable feat. I don't know the answer to this, maybe you guys do, but so Aaron came out of the Negro leagues, and just this year or last year, they announced that the Negro leagues Would be recognized as a major league. So Kevin will his home run totals go up. That's a good question. Forget I was that was kind of the first thing I thought of was how our stats going to be affected. I haven't seen anything like that change, Fergie. I don't know. Maybe you have a better grasp on it. No, I haven't heard a thing. I'm not sure. I think Hank only played one or two seasons your right leg, So I'm not sure how many home runs. He was 17 or 18. When he played in the Negro leagues solved. Not sure there was a story that when he was a kid, he met Jackie Robinson in his hometown. Robinson was going around to different towns, encouraging kids to get their education and, you know, go toward a good career and things like that. And he said. That was when he saw his future. So let me ask you. When did you see your future Because you spend a lot of time on the ice. Way I look first the hockey player and then then I school pretty good basketball player, but I didn't really see how good I was until I went to winter ball that second year with Cal MacLeish in Philly organization and I developed a pretty good slider. And I could see that pitch was gonna probably get me to the big leagues quicker. I was getting players out a little easier than just sort of thinking fastball. Running Sounds small, but that slider really turned the tide for May. When I got the big leagues it really, really helping. Was it hard for you to quit? I mean, I'm sure you knew it was time to quit. But what was it like in the year two after Well down screen got me to come back when I came back to the Cubs, 82 83, then spring training of 84 hey, had said that they were going to the team is going another direction. They wanted younger players and I just turned 40. So when they said that they didn't need my services anymore, I went on home. It didn't haunt you. I mean, you know a lot of guys who'd do that their whole life. It's kind of tough to make the adjustment. Why I had a farm ranch in Canada and my father and I were taking care of that, but breaking quarter horses. I just thought that I almost 19 years the big leagues. I stayed long enough. Uh and, uh, time to go home. Like I got an answer on the Henry Aaron statistics. So he played they have a cut off of 1948 for transferring the statistics from the Negro leagues to Major League baseball cell. He, of course, played a few years after that, so his stats Would not increase. Listen. It was great for you to join us on this day as well. Remember, Hank, we're gonna talk to George will a little bit later as well about his significance in baseball. Great to talk to you any time, Fergie. Thank you for joining us today. Alright. Alright, guys, we'll talk again. You're listening to Chicago's afternoon news as we head into the news with Kim Gordon in a minute or two. Let's drop in on Henry Aaron and part of his acceptance speech at the Baseball Hall of Fame Shia Majesty of this occasion, and it's significant.

"Oh Yeah. At La live and. They're they're fighting COVID. They're they're fighting L. A. in County city ordinances, and if you go down there, hoping to watch it in the middle of the street, you're gonNA find out that the Games aren't on. So. Heed that warning if you WANNA weigh home stay home with. With your family and and. And it's GonNa be weird celebrating it that way. But I would imagine there's going to be a lot of zoom and online parties going on tonight. Yeah. So we talked about this a little while ago Lebron James in the idea of being a Laker. Here is Lebron on Laker fans not caring about his past resume or one what I've learned in a Laker that the Lakers faithful don't give a damn what you've done before until you become a Laker, you gotta do it with them as well. They don't care about your resume. At all until you become a Laker, then you gotta do it as a Laker and then that respect. And then here's Map Matt Barnes commenting on exactly the same thing about Laker fans. Oh, absolutely. The Lakers have one of the realists Ross in your face fan bases, and if you remember when he first came here, two years ago, a lot of people loved the move but a lot of people weren't happy. I instead, he had to really earn a stripe because everyone wanted to put him on that Laker Rushmore Ready. So he's in the process of earning everyone's love respect. He'll win this first reading this year any other a chance to win another ring next year. But when it's all said done, he'll be all time Laker. Great. You'll be all time laker favorite and We'll be able to hang their jerseys up there one day imagine eighteen months ago. There were people who were defacing Lebron James Murals. Not. Tonight. Not Tonight. There are a lot of people here who have proven a lot of naysayers wrong you out on the Front Office down to the coaching staff down to the players. And they still got one more wind ago Y'all got to get that last one. But when they do a lot of people going to be vindicated, that's for sure. Don't you think that Kobe is going to be just completely infused into this celebration when it happens no question I mean go back to when ad hit the game winner against Denver Gobi. Yeah. Ran Down the sidelines Yellen Kobe. Tonight there in the Black Mamba Jerseys. Twenty twenty will be remembered even when the Lakers win, the title will be remembered as the year we lost Kobe, of course. And in a lot of ways, this title be dedicated to his memory. And it. Okay. So I mentioned. That A did you see what Vanessa out? No. I did not that that was great. She out of either on Instagram or facebook that. They. She said, she heard they were wearing the Black Mamba Jersey. She said Mamba and Mamba Seated Jerseys activated go lakers. So maybe even there's a there's a wave of Kobe emotion that rides as an undercurrent you're going to see tonight and maybe Sunday and Tuesday winter how long it's GonNa take by the way Scott Davies tweets is from Australia he's getting ready for game five have baked on. Australian. Favourite. Cake Pavlova Hashtag Cakewalk Hashtag whoosh. Hashtag. PGA. Pita your. Your movement has spread down under. Yes. We're everywhere man we're everywhere. Yeah I mean that's the one thing I think Matt. Barnes said the realist Ross Fan base the one thing I'll say for Laker fans and by the way, I, think this goes along with with with other sports I think dodger fan I mean there's there's just such a great hard core basketball crowd that follows the Lakers when we talk about Laker twitter, you're talking about a lot of unbelievably engaged unbelievably emotional and unbelievably intelligent fans. Your takes on the Lakers whether it's on twitter on the phones or whatever I mean you guys are smart. That's one of the reasons why this job is such. A good job is we know we've got really smart locked in fans out there listening everyday and let's face it. They're very few teams I would say at the NBA level there are only to. The judge themselves on championship. Or Bust even Paul Pierce admitted after the clippers blew that three one lead. Well, we didn't really think we could win it in the first year anyway. The Lakers never say that right Laker say either we win the title or the season was a failure. You Miami you gotTa figure, which is a five seed was just kind of happy to get their oh thrilled to get there. Yeah. But the Lakers. If and when they get this last win that to them is complete validation because if they finish anywhere else if they finish two through thirty, the season was a failure I wanna play you something from Jalen rose something.

"Hunt auctions. Sixty seven year broadcasting career of in sculling. There's so much comfort in voices and growing up. I was fortunate to have. Great. Voices they're on the radio and you know for those people in Los, Angeles Chick. hearn, and then you had been I mean. You were spoiled how lucky is that and I grew up I had Al Michaels was the voice of the Cincinnati reds for a couple years and I then had Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall and you just heard them and it was just it was comfort. It was home no matter what was going on with your team to have that and I always felt bad for those who grew up in. A city that maybe they didn't have that voice that was there for a good portion of your childhood because that's when the voices really resonate because you get you just grow up with that that that's that's that voice you hear, and that's like mom and dad, and then the play by play Voice of your your favorite team and have that and to hear that and for those dodger fans who've reacted. And don't thank me I wanted to have been on and I'm glad that you you got to hear him because it's been a while since unless you're on twitter within but. A lot of great memories there and I love that for all of you young broadcasters, there's nothing wrong with being quiet. and has been said no I had somebody gave me a critique. The best contribution Vin scully had was that he didn't say anything and Ben said I took that as a compliment? Because? Vin always allowed a game debris. And I we over talk and over analyze and then I. think it was always a tip of the cap that Vin was saying to you the listener. That, you know a lot about this sport you're listening to or watching. That I don't need to tell you everything. Were with this together and I. Never. I never take it for granted when I had that opportunity to talk to. A lot of great memories sir. All right.

"You are listening to the Dan Patrick Show on Fox sports radio spent a lot of time talking about Lakers rockets last night you also have a game seven coming up tonight with Celtics and the raptors nuggets in the clippers also going at it a lot of college football this weekend not necessarily great matchups Paulie what is the best most competitive matchup this weekend in college football most competitive. It's not the greatest sleet. But you have some Marquis Teams Yay action. Notre Dame starts with Duke now that doesn't sound like it'd be tough but falls a lot better than it used to be Clemson wake forest doesn't do a lot for. Missouri State Oklahoma new fence. But Duke football is. Not to football from a long time what is the point spread there with Notre? Dame and Duke. And is that at Notre Given Twenty at home? I still do to cover W. do don't don't bet on Chief Sandal the Texans Thirty, four, twenty, Clyde Edwards. Allaire. The H is silent goes for one thirty eight and a touchdown the Lakers three one on the rockets and I would say pretty much done with the rockets there. You start to look at styles and I love to see and we always talk about regular season and postseason. It's the same way with other sports like the NFL. Isn't a style that is sustainable in the postseason like the titans. You know you do that during the regular season nobody notices you do that in the postseason everybody notices because now you're just running the ball down people's throats. San Francisco is a running team last year the colts running team last year the packers are running team last year I. Think the cowboys are going to be more of a running team this year the seahawks are running team. We talk about the proliferation of passers and the numbers here, but you're seeing teams at still wanna run the football need to run the football. And you protect your quarterback that way as well Kansas City last night this the first time I think in Mahomes his career that they ran the ball as much as they did. And you know you're not going to touch him. He got hit three times last night. The team had thirty four rushing attempts. That's the most any game started by Patrick Mahomes. By the way. MAHOMES is Mr September. Now he might be Mr February as well but he has thrown twenty six touchdown passes in the month of September with zero interceptions. He has not lost a game in September. He's now eight no in his career after last night's win. Stead. WHO's asleep at.

He's going to be talking baseball on all three of these formats, and here was his Welcome to Twitter moment. If you wondered why Welcome to Twitter was trending today. It's because everybody wanted to welcome the goat Vin Scully to Twitter. Hi, everybody and a very pleasant good afternoon to you. This has been making his debut on social media, and it's nice to be welcomed. I'm delighted to see if I can't serve you in any way of shape or form.

I think what he was alluding to more than that. You're not gonna have a hot mike, where he says that dirty son of a You know, from the side of Caesar. Some guy he didn't like along the way.

"Been Scully on with our good pal. Tim Cates over there at 5 70 am is another three minutes or so of Vin Scully. Probably talking with no notes in front of him, right? Just talked on the phone. With Tim Cates. Let's get back into it. Here we go. Think Dong with Vin Scully's joining social media. I think his handle is going to be the Vin Scully Then Scully, what this is we get ready for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. Then Clayton Kershaw's Now 32 years old. He's having himself a really good season. So far. He just passed Don Drysdale for Number two on the Dodgers all time strikeout list on Ly trailing the great Don Sutton. Should we be surprised at anything Clayton does anymore. Has he solidified himself in your mind is one of the Dodger all time? Great pictures? Certainly without a doubt, you know, it's funny when we talk about Clayton Kershaw. I don't really think about is no hitter or his consistency over the years. The first time I ever saw Clayton pitch was in spring training in Barrel Beach and the Dodgers were playing. The Cincinnati Reds, and I didn't know anything about this kid named Clayton Kershaw, who's coming in the pitch, and the Reds had a big first baseman named Sean Casey, kind of known as the mayor. The mayor because he greeted everybody who arrived at first base anyway. Casey, who was Oh, very good hitter and a power hitter, as well was now gonna face young Clayton Kershaw. So I kind of Lynch forward to see how It comes out. I got two quick strikes on Sean and he then through Casey as good a curveball as he has ever thrown in his life. And Casey was frozen at the plate watched strike three. So when I see Clayton pitching, I can't forget that scene way back in spring training. And that curveball that was unbelievable. And that was the introduction to a young kid who has all the stuff necessary to succeed and the best of all for Clayton. He's never let out. He has never taken anything for granted, and he's as hard a worker As there is on the team, So, yeah, I have a lot of memories of Clayton especially being with him all these years, and the no hit is great, but I just think of him is that young kid who struck out Casey, then great to chat with you again? Great to hear your voice. I know the Dodger fans look forward to hearing from you. We'll check in with you in a couple of weeks and hope for the Dodgers can keep on rolling. Oh, my gosh. Yeah, well, let's see that one of the 24 10. That means is only 25 games. 26 games left, and it's abbreviated save them so we will probably dust off the asterisk and the plan. For the fact we don't have 162 games. Good being with him. Always great to check in with the great Vince goalie. Great to hear his voice will check in within a few more times between now and the end of the regular season Thoughts with Vin Scully made possible by our good friends at Mercedes Benz. Devin Scully, Look at that man. In a great interview. With Tim Cates over there, boy. Good being with you, Tim. I think we'll use that as a drop of the home. And how many people can you talk Teo in 2020 that have an incredible memory of Jackie Robinson. Oh, yeah. I mean, by the way, when when he traveled, you know with Jackie Robinson, I think is his first or second year and you know, you would think When you're 80 or so You know some things you're not gonna remember of. He remembered every detail of that trip. Yeah, that's incredible. I mean, that's that's you know, that's 70 years ago. And at the time it may have felt fairly unremarkable. Because when you're in it, you don't really know that you're experiencing history. That's right. Yeah, I'm sure. I know. I'm sure he didn't. Absolutely. I mean, when somebody asked me Like, Hey, you know, somebody occasionally say So. What you do on the show last time, like I have no idea. Um yeah. Ah, Who do we have on who we have on? Ah, what Yesterday was I'm going to say Tuesday. Yeah, okay. Mark Toms was not here. Um, talked a little about the N B a game right? And the retired jerseys? Yes.

"That'd be better especially when you have the complement of running backs. I think the rams will have without. I have fifty percent early. We're just having call. You have to change your name to something with an Algorithm Larry. We're not. We're not doing doing this. I I agree to some say. Oh well defensively. I would've loved for them to grab a middle linebacker definitely Greg. I thought that will be something that they would do. But you're teams are GonNa wait 'til after today so after today you can now sign free agents and it won't go against you in terms of your compensatory picked. Right because the Rams Lawson you know Don Dante Fowler in free agency so they'll probably get a pig back so today when you sign players after four PM Eastern one PM Pacific then. They won't count against the compensatory. Pick things so you can go out and get a veteran guy that can fit in. There's will so we're we're worried about the draft and I keep telling people George Greg telling people. I'm just not so sure how. This season rookies will have a substantial impact on teams right. No offseason program with no off season work. Ota's minicamps you're going to have a bunch of young players coming in trying to learn the offense or defense literally in a matter of weeks. I think this is going to be the year of the veterans. And if you don't believe me a look yesterday at what the New Orleans Saints did in picking up Jameis Winston to backup a drew brees. You're starting to see that teams realize that even the forty niners kidding. Trent Williams trae. They're getting young. I mean older veteran players who can help you right away instead of maybe somebody's younger players to make an impact. Let's go to the phones before I move onto the raiders. I want to get your thoughts on the raiders team. You played for John. Inventory wants to back Greg Up. He wants to give Greg A wwl. Go ahead John. Yeah all the reason why I want to do. That is because of coach for a number of years and when it comes to your graphics. I think they're going to get your best players in your top ten after that pretty much. Everybody bounces out. So when you're picking after that you WANNA fill spots you feel you need and then you're looking for the guys that are eligible people that you can't teach be better. I mean best example. Tom Brady wind up being the best one of climbing John John. That's a terrible example. The six round quarterbacks become the greatest of all time that's only happened once in the history of the sport if it was that easy tease to do it all the time I give you that but you want to feel your knee. Okay that we'll we'll we'll address. Let's address that okay. John we'll address. I don't agree with that. But thank you for the call. What was the what was the major need if we all before Thursday started or for the rams case before Friday started if we said the ramp. What is the rams biggest need? If you only had one pick in his draft you could draft one player. What with the rams draft running back that would have been running back. Okay got right away so after that you just Kinda go with the best player on your board. Sometimes you upgrade other positions. You don't have to always draft knee. That's what gets people in trouble. We got to draft a neat. Well what if there's a player on our board? Who's actually than another player in a certain area and we can upgrade at that position. I'll probably do that instead. Yeah I agree with you. I go best player available. I figure out the talent situation first and then find a place to put the Laura you wanted to weigh in on John. Ventura trying to back Greg Up. Yeah he was horrible. I was like damn. He didn't help you out at Greg Shining at your bag. It didn't work out so well. I wished today that I had that I was at the studio and I had access to the soundboard. I KISS UP KISS UP. Sounds because that's all Laura does if it's whatever. Oh George absolutely big kissing up sounds when I get back to the studio. I'm going to destroy Laura with this being. Wait till he's over to. I've got in your back. Remember the one time you assured she had you on the sweatpants out there. What Kirk before. We move onto the raiders. Are you okay wearing sweatpants to the grocery store yeah? I'll do it all the time. Thank you thank you thank you know. They're not interested in that with this heat wave though now no not now but a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of quarantine. Sweatpants Kirk. Yeah no no no. No no not during quarantine. This is all a tree corn. Anytime wouldn't go to the grocery store. Thank you thank you very much. So anyway The raiders what did you make of their draft why I thought the first round pick the first one twelve thought. That was a great pick. I didn't believe that Henry Rugs was going to be available for them at twelve. I had him going to the jets With you know for Sam Darnold but they went with Beck and they pick the tackle to help out their young quarterback with rugs available. I said this is who JON GRUDEN WANNA. And this is a a raiders. Pick right a four to seven. Forty one of the fast guys in this draft. Yes that was the great pick for them now. The only now the other pick pick nineteen. That's the one I scratch my head a little bit on Damodar Net. He'll be twenty four when the season starts you talked about Van Jefferson being a little older receiver. Arnett is going to be an older defensive back and I got a little heat about this on twitter this weekend older people but this is just. Kinda my opinion George but is sometimes feast or famine right. It's risk versus the war when you draft Ohio state cornerback. Because when I look at all apple right remember he Li- Apple. You could win Gary and Conley will die who was drafted high. Who's already on his second team in a short span? Not all how state cornerbacks are going to be Denzel Ward or even Marshon Lattimore. Right you know they can also be the other to like. We mentioned he. Li- APP or Gary in Cali. Are these defensive Bax benefeciaries of who the boasts the chase. Young's of the world right by those defensive. Lineman have helped out those quarterbacks. So that's why it's always for me just a little buyer. Beware on that but outside of that. I thought the raiders had outstanding draft. They've got their some of their needs. definitely met and I guess they have this pipeline between Clemson University in the raiders so now five players in the last two years from Clemson drafted by Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden. They love them. Some clemson Cleveland fail. Man You WanNa go you WanNa what is it. What was it that he said? He goes to a program to program when coaches all video. Yeah but the raiders had a good draft. Though they did they stuck to what they had to. And like I said the rugs pick is just outstanding. They needed somebody who can stretch the field we knew about last year. The Antonio Brown thing didn't work. Yeah so rooks comes in Hungary's ready to roll. He'll give them. I think that top top end speed. The raiders went out and got another piglet. Lynn Bowden junior running back quarterback wide receiver man. He's going to be a gadget. Guy For the raiders. So it's interesting. Draft for the raiders. Because they got a lot of talent and I think it's only only help them this season. I we're up against a Gimme a letter. Grade of Kirk Morrison's teaching skills right now at the Morrison School of Higher Education. Just a letter wall right. Now I'm on about A. B. Okay Fair working on my patience right right well thank you so much for stopping by. Kirk always appreciated. It sounds good always a pleasure. Thanks TO KURT. Thanks to me. Thanks to Lauren.

"George specifics specifics. The specifics like you're trying to ask me to write all right specific words that I like that we've rattled you like we've told rattled you today. It doesn't take much. That piazza in his book. Said that Vince. Gully was crushing him. Because Vince said Hey I when he was trying to get his contract done with the dodgers he put on February fifteenth deadline and Vin. Scully was telling them like. Hey what are you doing with his self imposed deadline? And what are you GONNA do? And the way that he put in the book was the way the whole contract drama looked to them. Many of whom were taking their view from. Scully was that by setting a deadline insisting on so much money. I was demonstrating conspicuous. Lack of loyalty to the ballclub. Vince Gully was crushing me. Why how bad you say anything bad about. Vin was taken him out by the news. No he was just saying what? Are You doing why you go? What is going on with your look. I love Vince. Gully and do we know he's okay now from the fall like what was it. Seemed like he was okay. Right good yes and I know we all love Vin scully. But look there's a rule right. They'll be talking about another man's money man. You know what I'm saying. He was loyal to the ball club. Used my Kbia was not and if I remember correctly they offered him like a one hundred million dollar contract when one hundred million dollars was a gigantic amount of money listens to Liz. I know Vin scully. Just like the next guy. Okay he was the soundtrack to baseball as I was growing up. He was calling the world series. When I was a kid. Okay I was. I didn't live here but I knew I listened to him every year. Call the world series when he was doing it. So here's the thing and I'm gonNA open up the phones right now. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn as much as you love in. Scully is it still not cool to be talking about another man's money. There's nothing that Vince. Gully can say Moro. I know you love Vin scully. I know you're a dodger fan. I it is it okay to talk about another person's money like that now. My money's my money in your mouth. I love in but I got hot. Take Shiloh George. I Love Van. But you can't be talking about other people's money man like you know what? I'm saying he wasn't saying like oh. You don't deserve this amount of money or that you all you're saying is hey. What are you doing with this ultimatum and February fifteenth deadline? It was nothing to do with the money. It's still it's still about money. It's about the contract wasn't it was about the contract saying are you loyal to the dodgers or worried about your money. Let's go to Gelato drew to help. Settle this go ahead. July drew drew Bergman here those fighting words or fighting Atkins when you were in about another man's money his bread his Lupu. Yeah yeah had chicken as Marshawn Lynch you know and I love but no you do not do that to another man. At all the time there was no social media. Then so people were like Piazza's right. They were getting most of their input from Vince. So Bergman dead wrong but he can use ramp to can you tell. Can you tell Bergman? He's taking now. He told Berkman King of that statement. That's a good drop right. They're eligible run back later. Bergman by Gillette or droop today just not my day or week or whatever you WANNA call it at this point. I'm not. I'm not going against Vince Gully. I don't care what any saying you have to go against him. I mean the man is a saint but it doesn't mean that everybody is infallible. Like occasionally you can do something that like. You're like okay. I don't agree with it. let's go to Ted and Fullerton. Ted How are you doing all right? Yeah I don't think it's bad for visual artists as on my talk about it. Yeah what's he doing? He's been laws team to the team. I get it but would you be cool if someone at your job. Blake was talking about your finances. I don't think that's cool. Well those under contract baby. I'm not under a contract. You know already okay. But what if what if what if you are the best employees at your job which he was at that time and someone who ate? Your boss is telling you a man. Why do you want to raise? We should all get raises. Then and you and your response can be one producing more than everyone right like. Why are you? That's not a cool conversation to have look at it that way but it was like that though. I mean he was asking him why he had a deadline on on his contract. I would have given on your contract Mica because sometimes you got to play hard ball with the man. You can't let the man keep you down. That's what they said in a movie. House.

"Steelers there were games that were winning a lot, and that everybody else was kind of United that they hated those teams because those teams are doing well, I never thought Boston would be in that situation like we from nineteen eighty six to, I don't know, when the pats beat the Rams that fifteen years was really dark late, especially like by the end of the weight. Nineties, j I remember Gerry Callahan. Calling what was gone? Loser Bill who's a real, and it was just dark. And it makes me think, like it really could like to me anything's realistic now. Like the clippers getting collide, and ripping off five titles seven years, like shore. I would, I would the worriers becoming the team of the decade was inconceivable eight years ago, and they became the team of the decade. So I just feel like it to me. It's ownership that matters more than the city government. You look at the guy. Governorship. Sorry, you look at the Knicks the Knicks are getting it shut out of free agency. It's amazing. You have all these teams that have Cavs space. They have probably the most fans of any NBA team. They're gonna get shut out. There's eight marquee free agents. They're gonna go over eight. And the only reason is because of the owner, there's no other reason nobody wants to play for that guy until he sells the team that's not going to change. Bella check. I have a theory on this. So everybody knows VIN Scully. So VIN, Scully was so great as an announcer in Los Angeles. You were not allowed to be a Homer as a broadcaster in Los Angeles because VIN set the bar. So if you were a Homer, you're a hack in Los Angeles, you had to be at least somewhat dignified. Well, read articulate because VIN set the table for LA broadcasters. Bella checks, on the same for New England that Bella Chac, basically, stole a red. Sock city made it a patriot town. And he's so academic and so smart. That Brune executives and Celtics executives and everybody in the city is like, oh for Christ's sake. You have to embrace analytics. So raising the bar for Belet has one and is literally taken the blue call a football guy and made a mockery of you think James Jones than the opposite of New York. Well, the difference is lower. You don't have a ballot check their parcels embel-, check left. Bella check has set a standard in Boston, which is a bright city anyway embrace. Analytics, be the smartest team in the league. If if you don't you look so small compared to the patriots, we're just smarter than everybody. And I think the, the same Scully equivalent the bell check permeates. I guarantee you in the Bruins the Celtics, there's.

"Okay on Saturday, Milwaukee, Brewers legend, Bob euchre spinning inning in the FOX booth with Joe buck and John Smoltz, and it was well received nearly across the board. I heard it was. It was great to cameo raised hopes that VIN Scully would follow suit. Once the NFC s returned to l. a. on Monday, but the retired voice of the dodgers declined. When contacted me the LA times VIN claimed he just wouldn't feel right stepping into the spotlight quote. I don't want to just take a bow Scully told the times I just don't feel right doing that. It's not false modesty. I just don't think I belong there. There and quote, let's say I put you Steve Mason in charge of project Scully. Your job is to get him into the booth somehow for one inning. Is there anything you think you could say or do to get this done. No. All right. I've got an idea has let me just let me explain. Let me let me explain on that. So I've always always loved what Johnny Carson did when he retired, he never saw him again. Never saw him again. I think that's the Vince gully plan. Well, he was. He was grand marshal, the rose parade the January after he retired, right? Yes. Okay. Here's the one thing I would have taken a swing at and I don't know if he would have done it, but you tell me if you think it would have worked. Your FOX Cam FOX. You go to him and say, remember that the first game of that series was on the thirtieth anniversary of the Kirk. Gibson Homer, one events, most iconic calls of all time. Your FOX, Kirk Gibson, has Parkinson's your FOX. You go to VIN and you say, we think we've got an opportunity here to do something special and donate some money to a great. 'cause we will give you a million dollars to give to Parkinson's charities. If you come do an inning with Joe Jack buck's son because Jack had the other icons, right? That's Joe is already said he would just step back just with euchre if VIN came into the booth, I would. I would out of the reverence I have for him just step back, but Joe would be there. He'd be sitting in the booth in the same booth that van and Jack and all those guys made the call eighty eight. You put the number for Parkinson's research up on the screen, and you invite Kirk Gibson. I don't know if Kirk sable travel. I think he was in Michigan, so that might have been a non starter, but just for one inning on the thirtieth anniversary of the Gibson Homer, then. Calls in inning. The the number for Parkinson's stays up on the screen. FOX donates a million dollars to Parkinson's. Research VIN does one inning and says goodbye under those circumstances, don't you think Vince the type of guy who would say that I could do? Yeah, I think for a good cause like that in a million dollars, you remember he was on our show as guest once and the reason he was on was because someone had a charity that needed attention and then he was on twice and VIN called a, yeah, because then he came on because he wanted to wish by a Miller. Congratulations when the kings won the Stanley Cup, if it's not about him, VIN will respond. And I think FOX may have missed an opportunity there. Now if LAN Rosen's listening, lawn would is pounding his steering wheel saying, I've told Ireland a million times, Vince not doing it. He's not coming back for any price for any reason. But I think presented with those exact circumstances. Kirk Gibson on the day of the thirtieth anniversary million dollars to Parkinson's research, put the number in the screen for the whole half inning. I think VIN under those unique circumstances might have gone for it on for it. Yeah, mine of I mean, Charles Freeman, tweets, how many times does Mr. Scully have to say no respect his wishes. Well, he'll Charles, he'll get asked every year until he dies. He worked till he was eighty nine. I mean, I don't think we will ever. Seeven do another game. I think you're probably right. But boy, it would have been great when you did grace stick ya. I love. Here's union last Chack of right..

"Doing Phillies broadcast on radio, and he said, good evening by Sam on everybody. And we've all done it, of course. But no, I listen to. I used to get my bedroom, my folks house and I had a transistor radio and what a great joy to tune in to fifty thousand dollars stations. And I think that the relationship between baseball broadcasters and fans as much more. Tight than it is in almost any other sport. And it's so many of those guys have one path. I mean, Harry Carey, Jack, bucking in Saint Louis answer Kogyo. They were Mike people. Oh my gosh. And if you if you listen, you learn VIN Scully is maybe the greatest broadcaster ever. And I was lucky enough, oh four, five years ago to to be given the VIN Scully lifetime achievement award. And if the event was held here in New York and Bob Costas was a previous winter. I mean, it is a murderer's row of memorable broadcasters. And the next day I was down at my mo-modern getting ready to deliver the commencement speech and then doesn't travel anymore. So he did his introduction of me from Dodger Stadium broadcast booth. And Bob Costas gave me a call and he said, I, I'm sorry, I missed it last night. My son was graduating from college. I said, I understand why you weren't there. And he said, I've just got ask you a question when then skelly introduced you on tape. Did that cause the hair on your forearms to stand at attention? And I said, absolutely is so just to be associated with him. But those guys I listen to and I grabbed the trans. Trans- transistor and go under the covers, and listen to all those Katie k. and Rhys. Berg all the fifty thousand watt stations that were prevalent been than no, I think it takes us back and you know, I remember the summer. It was sixty four of the kid and the cardinals a panorama and they were they Harry and Jack would Senate to Katie k they would go to Philadelphia. It was just a different time when and as you obviously transitioned to television. What prepared you for that because you were suddenly dealing CBS with the criminal crown? Yeah, I was. And I knew that. I mean, the biggest, the biggest job start I ever got was when Tex Schramm general manager of the Cowboys. We have transition and my I was doing color my partner Bill, Mercer, and always wanted to do major league baseball. And the Rangers came to town from Dallas. Yeah. And so Bill took that offer and played buffet spot opened up and I had never done radio play by really of football, never and tax selected me and made made an author. And he said, obviously, I think you can do this and he asked me, well, what do you want to do ten years? And I said, I would love being a network play, play guy, and he said, well, I'm offering you a chance to get started. We have a hundred nineteen stations on the Radio Plus count, and if you can do it and I obviously think you can the network will find you, and that is what happened. So I was plucked out of not obscurity because the Cowboys were and route to becoming America's team first time name. So by NFL films and Schramm always. Denied that they grabbed that title marketed come on. And my first game ever this, I, I hope you'll find this interesting. My first game ever was oral you at Kent state started big, regional, really, regional, and Don. James was coach and I'm memorabilia freak. I save a lot of stuff. And years later I went back and looked at the game program and they've got the staff and Don. James had to graduate assistants, Gary Pinkel, and this guy named saving and Nick, of course, we we've had fun now since I worked with him so many times about pretending that we both were remember that not, but I've said publicly on Alabama broadcast.
