Sports on the Sidelines
"Has been postponed that was march eleventh when an announcer called off the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz game. Just before tip off. Most of US remember that day it was the day. President trump announced the travel restrictions from Europe. The day Tom Hanks and read a Wilson said they had tested positive for Kovic nineteen and the day the NBA suspended the rest of the season after Rudy. Gobert the Utah Jazz Center head tested positive for the virus. You may remember go bare as the player who touched all the microphones at a Utah Jazz media event as a prank. He didn't know he was positive at the time and later apologized for it. I'm a huge basketball fan myself so I was crushed when I heard the news of the NBA suspension. But of course public health comes first to me that really was the watershed moment in the entire. Corona Virus Cova nineteen conversation and not just sports but in our culture. Christine Brennan has been covering sports for three decades. She says she hasn't seen anything like this in her entire career. I think it woke the nation and the world frankly up to the significance and the seriousness of the corona virus pandemic after the NBA suspended season. It was like a domino effect. Major league soccer in the NHL have suspended their seasons for now while Major League. Baseball is hoping to open season in May according to ESPN and the NCWA cancelled it spring and winter championships as a wolverine go blue. I love March madness. It's one of my favorite times of the year. I even had tickets to the final four this year so I was really disappointed when that didn't happen but the threat to our health and safety was too great and it wasn't just the safety of the fans it was for the safety of the athletes to eleven thousand. Olympians expected to compete in Tokyo. This summer had their plans. Put on. Hold the Twenty Twenty Summer Games now postponed until twenty twenty one. The Games have been canceled three times before. But this is the first time they've been postponed and of course even a date. That far ahead doesn't come without concerns. Christine Brennan told me well we in the summer of two thousand twenty one. We'll people feel comfortable. Flying on planes overseas will the Japanese fans feel comfortable being in big stadiums and the answer is over and over experts. I've talked to. We have no idea. We just do not know but by that point of course a lot of these. Olympic athletes will have lost months and months of training. I just don't think we know yet and I think that uncertainty is so difficult for athletes. Consider that Olympic athlete. Their whole lives for this one moment. I was hardly know just as we train for for almost a year to two years. Just make the Olympic team. That's odd the beater Amman. An Olympic distance runner twenty twenty was the fifth time he's qualified at forty three. He's also the oldest American to run the marathon in the Olympics. You know before before the device you have a goal does the one thing you have like road races coming up you. Have you have something to get ready for this time? Everything's on the air. I just training just to stay fit and the sports world isn't just waiting on the sidelines. In the midst of the Pandemic Major League Baseball is now participating in a nationwide Corona Virus Antibody Study League employees spouses and players volunteered to participate to help give a better understanding of how prevalent this virus really is so I go is not to get an obese specifically back to work go in our research is really to get a bit of understanding of what the true prevalence looks like across the nation. I spoke with Daniel Lichner. The president and lab director of the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory. They were great pot down in a great organization because the head nationwide coverage that we could access individuals that were I seem to matic regular part of the general population. You know from team owners all the way down to hotdog vendors and be sales people on Game Day and everything in between you're looking at the MLB it sounds like sort of a microcosm then of the country Representing different demographics of our country. Can Can you talk me through how it was administered? Then in how quickly then did they get results? Some people could do drive-thru program where they have a bunch of their technicians. Physicians trainers and the Individuals with the drive through. Stick their finger out the window get fingerprint can get the result literally in a matter of minutes and it seems like most people would fundamentally want to know. Then am I now essentially immune can I get infected again? I think which too soon to say what that immunity looks like now. The federal government is slowly making plans to reopen the country. As I said earlier president trump has asked major league sports commissioners to be apart of that conversation the commissioners have a tough job. They're weighing a lot of things. In making the decision of how in win to get back to work commissioners work for the owners and their league and and the owners are going to want to start playing. They're going to want to start making money again. They're not liking the losses the financial losses that they're taking of course no one is the commissioners also have to weigh the very significant health risks. Not just for the players and their families and the referees and the coaches and the TV people and the and the media people But also the fans in the stands. And if you're drawing people into a stadium and if it becomes a corona virus hotspot and all of a sudden explodes. That is the fear of every commissioner in every sport you open up too soon you bring people together and all of a sudden you have another corona virus bomb sports says we know it may not be the same for a long time the NFL draft. Which starts tonight. We'll be held. Virtually for the first time as was the WNBA draft last week. The League plans to start its regular season in September and the draft helped set that into motion. Here's NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in an interview with ESPN. Obviously it's a different year for all of us. We had to make modifications in our offseason program We've had to make significant changes to our draft And those are all appropriate and their right to do. And we you know part of what this is about is continued to work from home by-product from home continue to do things we're supposed to do and be prepared. There's also the possibility that spectator less sports will become the new normal Christine Brennan predicts that will happen at the PGA men's golf tournament when it comes back in June and the masters in November. We could see an a masters without spectators. And that's GonNa look very strange to a lot of people. Although my prediction here is that within a couple of days of watching some of these sports events. If you watch a baseball game without spectators day is not gonNA look a strange the next day and by the third or the fourth day. You're going to be totally used and you're just going to be happy. You're watching baseball again. I think sports is walking a very fine line. It's kind of a tight rope. We want sports back. It'll make people happy it'll signal this openness that maybe we're we're coming out of this and yet you don't WanNa move too fast. Olympic runner of the Bearman thinks that the twenty twenty one Olympics will be a history making record breaking year. But I think he's GonNa going to unite us. I'm just GONNA have so much energy like a lot of things. Going every athlete winner represent contract because they know what their country went through so everybody wanted to do when do their best Magic Johnson also remains hopeful America. All of us who live in this great country that we live in. We need sports especially in a time like this but only if everybody is safe

G. Willow Wilson Creator of Kamala Khan
"This episode g willow Wilson, she's a comic book author, and she wrote the first marvel comic with a young Muslim woman as the hero, Kamla, Han aka MS marvel. So when I was in high school, I was kind of a giant Goth. I was the kind of insufferable kid who, who would say that they were not actually cost the Gosper, too pretentious, and that I was above that of. But Nevertheless, I wore the really dark lipstick and like the fish nuts, and the pseudo Victorian jackets, that you could find like buffalo exchange. Yeah. I mean, if you looked up Goss in the dictionary, you would have found a photo of me somewhere. Fortunately, for me around the same time, sort of the late eighties early nineties, this British wave of very literary experimental comics started coming out. And I ran Pedley became obsessed, and one of my absolute favorite series, as was the case for a lot of people was Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Which took a World War, Two era, kind of be list, super hero and turned him into this mythological dream king who goes on adventures with all kinds of different, mythical creatures and kind of deconstructs, western mythology from a really interesting point of view. So, you know, for me as like a fourteen year old fifteen year old mega Goth this was huge and revelatory. Not just the story itself, but the medium of comics. Sandman told a kind of story in comic book form that I didn't really know was possible. It was kind of my first exposure to these more literary more adult kinds of comics, when I was a kid comics were still considered very much a kids, medium, and particularly a boys medium. There were not things that were marketed at girls. There were very few books out there that were adjacent to the superhero world that were marketed to adults so to see a comic book that was very clear and open in its love for that classics Hooper hero story. And yet, at the same time talked about Shakespeare and Chaucer and you know, brought in a very Joseph Cambell kind of U of mythology. Just expanded my understanding of what could be done within the pages of a comic book. I want to take a quick break to tell you about another podcast. I worked on it's called the big one your survival guide. We walk you through what it would be, like, if a major earthquake hit Los Angeles, and we help you understand what you need to know, to survive science and journalism, and immerses you and the experience of being in a huge earthquake. Don't be scared. We help you prepare. You can find it today wherever you listen to this show. Okay. Back to tell them. I am. So as I remember, the first time I found Neil, Gaiman Sandman, I was at the apartment of a friend. Who is I think about two years older than me and had graduated. And they were already living on their own. And so we're, we're very kind of cool and grown up in my eyes. You know, the, the people who live, there had also been giant Goths. So there were clove cigarettes, which were still legal at the time sitting around, and, ashtrays, and that's kind of always what it smelled, like, which I like the smell of. But it had that kind of late nineties, Goth aesthetic, every all the windows were kind of draped in, like, JoAnn fabric in sort of dark colors. It was it was just that kind of place. This apartment had a collective library of all kinds of great stuff, and they were all reading Sandman, and they had they'd just sort of made a rule, you can read whatever you want, but don't take anything out of the apartment. But because their library was so big. I was like, nobody will notice if I just kind of sneaked these back issues out and read them on my own, so I did. And. It was one of those reading experiences that, that kind of sticks out in your mind as being something for which there is a before. And an after he read this book. It made me feel a lot less grubby as a Goth it, oh, it was a very unabashedly Goth comic. And it was kind of cool to see something with such a huge cultural impact that was kind of headlined by this very Goth guy with white makeup, an extremely scruffy kind of Robert Smith, secure hair, and it was kind of a nice affirmation that you could do the stuff. And it you'd be kind of like a mopey teenager. And yet have cool stories that meant something, and that we're all to uplifting, and we're about hope. So, you know, it was in, in that sense. Nice to see Goths doing some kind of artistic service for, for the whiter were. The kind of storyteller that he was was very influential, and then as I got a little bit older. And I I saw him a couple of times back. This is back when he used to tour. I was also very impressed with the way that he approached writing and being a writer and it being a human being. There was one instance, in which I saw him along with a bunch of other really amazing comic book writers, including, I think Peter David, at MIT just a few days, not more than a week after nine eleven. Nine eleven happened just a couple of weeks after my nineteenth birthday at the beginning of my junior year of college. And he you know, I was I was very much a college student, I was kind of going through a late adolescent. What does it all mean phase, I become interested in, in religion and started to sort of rethink what I assumed about life, and purpose and are, are sort of our place in the universe. And like everybody, I think it was it was a tremendous shock. I think particularly people of my vintage kind of elderly millennials or Xeni, all's had never known a time when the US felt really threatened. The Cold War was kind of over, there was a sense that we were separate from the rest of the world or that nothing could ever interrupt. That period of prosperity into which we had been born and so nine eleven just massively shook the foundations of our generational experience and especially being in Boston at Boston University, the feeling of ongoing threat and vulnerability was quite high. Two of the planes had taken off from Logan airport. There are all kinds of rumors circulating that, there were still a terrorist cells in the city. And so it really did feel like a war zone in many ways, and it occurred to me, just sort of walking to class that this is the reality that so much of the rest of the world faces every single day. And somehow we have managed to avoid it for this long. And now here we are just like the rest of the world. as we did for a lot of things during those weeks after nine eleven we kind of hung around to see if this event was actually going to happen because a lot of them were cancelled. And it was clear that, yes, it was going to happen. It was still going on. So we, you know, we decided okay, well, we're not we're not going to give up this, this chance to see all of these amazing authors and artists on stage at the same time. And we decided yeah, we're going to go. We're going to we're going to do it, despite the sort of aura of anxiety and dread. That was kind of hanging over everything. What was interesting to me is the Neil Gaiman was the only one in his kind of opening words who never mentioned nine eleven once everybody on stage when they got up to talk that was what they talked about. It was it was about superheroes in nine eleven. You know, I think one of the people on stage envisioned this world in which wolverine was on the plane with the terrorists, and sort of got up and, and hit them with his finger spikes. And it kind of rubbed me the wrong way because I remember thinking, you know, this is not the time to pretend that are fictional heroes are gonna do us any kind of good. It's too real. It's a nice thought that yes. If we had these amazing heroes who were always in the right place at the right time that they would have saved us, but they didn't. And Neil Gaiman got up and never mentioned nine eleven once he just sort of told a story, I don't even remember what it was that he talked about. But by the end of it for about thirty seconds. We all forgot and in a weird way, I think that prepared us to have them were serious conversation versus the. Yeah. Wolverine would I've got him if you'd have been there, which, which just felt very tried to me. The reason that that stood out to me was because it illustrated, very neatly that for a storyteller in a time of great national tragedy upheaval. The way forward is not always the way through that sometimes we assume we're in a position to attack things head on. And yes, we're gonna fight, whatever it is or or get through whatever it is. And it's, it's very easy to blur the line at that point between storytelling and, and just sort of shallow saber rattling. But what he said at that time illustrated to me that it was possible to speak in a deeper key and not to pretend that you have the answers that you need all the answers. You know, everybody was was in an incredibly tense somber. Reflective mood, and it I think brought a lot of us especially who are about my age. I was eighteen at the time into the realization that we are all mortal that, that, that nothing that we think, is a turtle is eternal, and that the world may be didn't look the way that we had been taught growing up,

Michigan state though, one both the head to head meetings. This season February twenty fourth in Ann Arbor, seventy seven to seventy and then eight days ago in east Lansing, Michigan state one again, seventy five sixty three not only winning the game but waiting the big ten regular season title, this rivalry Michigan. Michigan state, great not only in football. But in basketball to Michigan head coach John beeline says could be the best rivalry in all sports. I think he's far as anybody's Michigan. Michigan state fan. It is that it's not as sexy as the Duke North Carolina game. We're we we may have NBA players here. Hollywood star. Hours or whatever. That's okay, show me another place where they got two people in the state. They've been to four final fours in the last ten years. We have four championships. They got more than that in the last ten years. Right. You got gray rivalries everywhere. But not ones that are playing this deep Marsh, not not the ones that say, they they sweep us. We sweep them. We split day. Sweep bus damn they split. It's been a great particularly the last nine years we had to get our thing going a little bit. The first few years were good to us. But after that, we shot we got we got two great programs. It's not a great fair states. Great for college basketball to clean programs. We both have had injuries we still maintain. Our Billy to be good at the postseason. Right. We both have guys go pro allot, we still maintain that. You get good people. You get great support for your administration in these two states and these two universities, and we get great fans and alums Michigan state Spartans twenty seven and six overall. They were the co champions of the big tender in the regular season Tom Izzo steam, the number one seat in. In this big ten tournament after buys in the opening two rounds? Michigan state beat Ohio State in the quarterfinals seventy seven seventy yesterday in the semis. Michigan state with the route over Wisconsin, sixty seventy to fifty five Michigan state led by big ten player of the year. Caches Winston third in the nation in assists. He averages nineteen points per game ends the only player in the country, averaging eighteen points, seven assists and shooting forty percent from three point range. Big man, Nick ward is back and healthy. But still hasn't gotten his legs underneath them in playing just two games since returning from a broken hand Tillman Matt mcquade, they combined for nineteen points per game while six seven Ford Kenny joins is starting to turn heads as a senior as now averaging eight and a half points and nine rebounds per game head coach Tom Izzo, Ken. He's probably been the guy. That's changed. Our teamed throughout the last two and a half months. You know, he is one of our best defenders he is our best rebounder, he is her mom, maybe our best condition guy, and he is really figure. Out how shoot the ball. And does it. With a high percentage and Kenny deserves a lot more than I probably given them. But I think KENNY'S putting himself in a position where there's gonna be some basketball for Kenny after college Michigan state their deep. They're talented, and they know how to win especially in the postseason. They're going to be a tough match up. Again, the third time around for John beeline talking about a team that has just played great basketball all year long played a very demanding schedule the injuries, certainly I feel bad for the the two injuries that they've had the fact is they're playing at a high level rate now like they had they had no injuries. And so you got to you understand you get one of the hall of fame. Coach is incredible at his team's execution on offense and defense, and we haven't played well against them. And that's because they played so well against us. So Bama third time we go we're going to go after the championship. Again, you only get so many chances to win a championship a chance to do it. Right now, we're going to every weekend to win this championship. Because we didn't get the last one Michigan wolverines twenty eight and five over all the number three seed in this big ten tournament. John team led by freshman Ignace bras Davis and his fifteen points per game. The big ten freshman of the year shoot. Forty six percent from the floor. Forty two percent from beyond the arc Jordan pool. Exhibitor Simpson part of Michigan's three guard backward. They combined for twenty one points and seven assists per game. Senior Charles Matthews is healthy and averaging twelve and a half points per game in the middle. John Taskey averaging ten points and seven rebounds per game. This Michigan wolverines team balance an offense and really tough on deepens top three in the country. This is a signature John beeline coached team. I think it's it's pretty consistent with the teams. We've always had low turnovers right team. A lot of skilled guys it will share the ball. We've had over twenty assists. The last two games guys will share the ball a lot of shooters skilled guys a big a big center who. Shoot a little bit. And it just that's that's the identity of many of our place now, and we've got really good. If you compare it to other teams, you all the way back to Darius Morris to Trey Burke, the Derrick Walton to save your Simpson. Great point guards make very good teams. Michigan and Michigan state two teams familiar plan on this stage, the Spartans there's is their seventh appearance in the big ten championship game going for their sixth title while Michigan is going for their third straight big ten tournament title and come in having won ten in a row in tournament. Play coach beeline says there's just something about the postseason and his team's only I could say that must be something. We're doing all year long. It might be mid major mentality way. Before that, you know, how you play the season doesn't mean anything you've got to win your tournament. But I wish that there's nothing intentional here. We're just trying to get better every day. Right. And then I think if you go into tournaments, and you're usually a team that doesn't beat itself during the. Season. Maybe add some success then but this is not intentional. It's just it's just happens. Sometimes should be a good one. It's the battle of Michigan between the Spartans in the wolverines when we come back. We'll get you.

With twenty touchdowns on his career. Well, we knew the the weakness of this Nebraska. Northwestern defense was their secondary. So yeah, Michigan wanted to come out. Throw the ball a little bit trying to tack that weakness they need to go out there and be Michigan. Do what we're good at Picton year has three hundred sixty four yards of forty six carries back to throw Patterson getting pressured rolls out to his left buying time. He's gonna run up over the thirty thirty two thirty three or he's knocked out of bounds by Blake Gallagher. Nobody opened again as shape Patterson goes back to throw on first down, excuse me. Total yards for Michigan zero on on this up to this possession. Ninety three for northwestern zero for Michigan in total offense wolverines on that scramble by Patterson. Get three yards. So it's second and seven ball marked at their own thirty four the protection has been decent. It's not like he's been under duress immediately. It's just that the secondary right now with north western is playing extremely well. They split Higdon out to the left Patterson alone. In the backfield. Gets the snap books. Throws. He's got out in the flat makes them in miss at the forty over the forty to the forty three yard line where he's going to have a Michigan first down there. First of the day down on the sideline duck card. You guys were just talking about the atmosphere. It is a really strange one. It feels like a bowl game to be honest with you the fans are probably just over fifty percent in favor of northwestern. But you look at Michigan until now I I out of the game defense hasn't gotten stopped without giving a point special teams put them in bad field position. Check all the boxes of what they're not doing well early in this game, they go pistol here. Patterson turns around visit hidden Brexit around the left side. He's got room. He's. Into north western territory at the forty nine yard line. So the wolverines get over the fifty down to the forty nine yard line. That's a gain of eight it will be second down to rains Jared McGee safety runs Higdon out of bounds. And they've been able to get the ball into the number one playmaker. So far this year. Koran Higdon both of the last two plays two plays ago. They lined him up like you said as a wide receiver let everybody run down field. He just stood there. And they told me both very simple play. And now Patterson's call a time out again. And he was uprising and FOX was way down the clock was way down. And he's looking at the referee wondering where did our time go. He's really surprised that that clock was so low, and I Jim Harbaugh wants to get an answer on that. Do what's go on the sideline? Doug. Did. You see that? I you know, what I did notice the play clock on play but shape Patterson walking over to have the team huddle. During the time out was talking to the official and. Earlier in the game. Jim Harbaugh was referencing. His hand was referencing the game the play clock. That's the second time. If that's what they think happened. That's the second time.

Speaking of people who might remember the last time that Indiana beat Michigan don't look Bill cubits betas. Quite fully remembers that day. Don't ask why the can any of you can any of you give me the year. And Michigan last lost dark day to Indiana. Reminds you while you're thinking about this? Michigan has been through the following. In the time period between say, nineteen ninety nine and the president, the rich Rodriguez era, the Brady Hoke era lows lower than previous Stoorikhel lows unimagined by any Michigan fan, including really old Michigan fans as bad at it as it has been ever for the Michigan wolverines. How long has it been? What was the year that Indiana last beat Michigan? So you said since nineteen ninety nine I'm gonna guess it's nineteen. Ninety nine. I'll say two thousand. No, no. That was a clever fake Spencer you mind your your question with misinformation which steered me directly into the wrong answer. I've been outwitted. I will give you a clue. All right. A clue. All right, since it's further back. Than either of your guesses and nineteen seventy four. I was going to give you a couple of songs from the last time. That I don't. I don't.

Walk like an Egyptian by the bangles alone by heart shake you down by Gregory Abbott. I'm unfamiliar. I wanna dance with somebody by Whitney Houston. What year in nineteen eighty eight very close. Very close ninety. Seven nineteen eighty seven Bill cubit. Was it Martin county high school in Florida? And so was this betas. If we can't assume that Ryan. Sorry. Sorry, logically. Ryan, we have to talk about this year fascination with Bill cubits. Penis is gonna just submarine this entire podcast Eve's. You've said this for eighteen episodes. And yet this podcast continues. I'm dead and lurching forward. Like Wisconsin offense. Yes, this, this was nineteen eighty seven. That means Indiana has not Indiana didn't beat us anytime during the troubles. They didn't beat us at our lowest. They didn't beat the worst Rodriguez James. They didn't beat the worst Brady hope. Teams they, they still they got every chance in the world to do it and they still haven't done it admittedly last year, respectable effort by the hoosiers. I mean every year, the really, really, really, really close every year. You're, you're both getting lost in the detail. What's important is not the winning streak or Indiana's failure to end it. The important thing is that this is the game. This is the game. That's when you'll see you'll see people other rivalries have, oh, this is the iron bowl or, oh, this is in the war. On I four. This is the game. This is the one we talk about. It's why it is the end of our schedule every year every year on ice giving believe me when I tell you that Michigan Indiana the most blue versus read the most important game, this decides dynasties the state out north west north, south west, excuse me, thinking about northwestern again, I'm the first person ever do that. I'm simply going to count this as our second victory over Notre Dame of the year. I think this is the year Indiana breaks the streak because. That's how important the game is. Disagree with that one, not with you, they're going to. I was thinking about Bill, Cubans painless. I won't lie. Yeah, I would go ahead. This is this is another noble effort by the hoosiers but they collapsed late. I think this feels like a thirty five twenty one thirty five twenty one mind. You're not scoring those offensively. That would be goes. I think. I think if it's a it's a Michigan Indiana game. It's gonna need to be thirty five thirty four and a half. If we can do that Indiana's got the ball players running to score the winning drop kick, and he, he misses something like that. Pardon me? I'm just almost died..

"Second it's a two point game jordan pool who is a freshman as we now know hits a game winning offbalance three from way deep at the buzzer and jordan pool and the michigan wolverines advance to now the second weekend and now they're going to the sweet sixteen but that's what this sport is michigan could not have water if they fell out of a boat down the stretch but all they needed to do was hit one shot down to a two would have tied the game a three wins it and they get that shot to fall and we've seen the script before and the nc double a tournament i'm sure we've seen in a different years i'm sure we've seen it in the first round but earlier today we also saw a similar script and that script was in chicago game came up against tennessee viola chicago was dominant they're up by ten points for most of the game you thought they were cruising to victory over chicago was the team that even though they're an underdog and they upset miami in the first round on basically was the buzzer beater then in the second round in this game when you're going up against tennessee and you look confident for the entire game you're calm the entire game and then in the final three minutes they get phased by the moment in the final three minutes like michigan they get sloppy with the basketball they turn the basketball over they missed shots that they've been hitting the entire game and you're starting to think okay now a little bit different because michigan was the favourite oil chicago is an underdog but you're starting to think that midnight is going to strike twelve o'clock on my oldest chicago and at that time when i'm watching this and i was admired by their confidence and the way that they were plying up against miami i picked them to beat miami and for most of the part up against tennessee i was saying wow this confident team while this is an aggressive team this is a team that they have the mindset that they're going to win the basketball game and then with three minutes to go you saw that all evaporate and i put the tweet out halo chicago has been cool and calm.
