His ron is so over and it is in and look. That's the way it is with him. Like you don't in boxing you know. Father time is undefeated area. Father hundred defeated but in boxing. There's a guy like like you know forming could come back at forty eight and like stay in a fight and get a few like good licks in on a guy and win. You can't do that in 'em out high or a story destroying so one or two weird. Plays your foot unique control as you get older. You're gonna break when you kick it on. Someone's elbow like when you're younger it bounces off when you're when you've done that for a long time and you're on your way down he's got osteoperosis. Alright also waits a great point though. Just like just for the sports nerds. That's a great point because you have c. m. may you have to worry about so many things and there's so many people who have different backgrounds so fly. Connor is a striker. Or like you look at ronda. Rousey she wanted to run where she fought. People weren't great strikers and she looked undefeated because she was using judo and then submitting them. A once she fought to sh- rikers. She's got a marsh. Yeah so it's like conor mcgregor. Now that the sport has evolved why he hasn't been there and they've started incorporating their's leg kicks right and obviously be showed the blueprint. Just get right into like people are gonna fight him that way from now on. They're not going to stand at a distance and let him strike so he's over and so that's why it makes it so hard and have a long run. It's because you're gonna face somebody from a discipline that you have a weakness because everyone has a weakness it'll be in style can be your weakness and pick on it all right. Finally england choke so hard in the euro cup. This shocked so her city multiple chances to win. They sat back after. They scored in the second minute. And the subs they brought in at the end completely. Cold had them shoot the last three. Pk's i don't understand that at all. I don't understand the strategy of the actual peak as where they kind of trying to get cute with it instead of firing it up into the top corner it just to me every single thing about it to win it the pressure of being at home at wembley and winning that thing the first time england winger gave you a shot. All you do not deserve to. It's such a shame that it was like the three black players on england who just got your like if this Yeah oh all england. Sportsman's are part of the national front. That's what we've learned at this point right now. It's so annoying. It's like i'll actually. Some people on social media are actually getting arrested. Which i think is a good thing. Yeah you know it's the thing where you realize. Soccer in europe is specific thing that makes you realize how much more racist europe is an aura. God do they have whole sections that are just doing nazis. Yeah mean because like you go like they are right wing. Party here is like less taxes and you over there. they're right. wing party is like we're not seized. Jesus christ so racist over there like am i. I wish a white guy would missed. I i was like. I wish that it just wouldn't have been these three young talented black players who were brought in too late mega it just to me. You say they kind of set about fail. It's so rough. It is so rough. But i am glad that people are getting arrested so rough. The way soccer ends like i. I don't wanna start a revolution here. But i should. Soccer needs to figure something else out than than not kicks the so anticlimactic i would say for real like i mean deficit sudden death. It i would like take off a player for each sudden-death so now you're down to like eight nine players. So there's more space like someone will score in that scenario. And i like thai. The goalkeeper one arm behind his back our thinking or we have on the sidelines. That comes out. And he has a gun and he just randomly fires onto the field and over. There you go. So he's blind and he's just wiring up your person in his life who's been shot before you have been shot in the lab so we were shot in the leg.

Why should be like it's fine. It's mexican coke and a lot of sugar too much. Do you have a dull onset diabetes. All right let's talk about Let's get some quick. Hits with. Yanis pappas here we go. You ready The olympic men's basketball team. We kind of alluded to it before. Loss is i mean. They beat argentina so that was a guest stepping back but like into the mix. But i mean what what do you think is the problem because i actually think popovich is the best coach and one of the coolest dudes ever so like. I don't think he's the provident. Take the right personnel. Have the they don't have the big man right. I think the rest of the world has gotten better guys. I really believe that the rest of the world has gotten better. I mean you look at lithuania. You look at a lot of these teams have nba players on their teams and if not nba players the nba level talent. I mean it's just because it's gotten better. And i will say fatigue may have something to do with this me because of corona what did they have like a two month break and then they went seventy games in one hundred and forty days. It's ridiculous so i think i think that's why we lost a lot of players premier players in the playoffs to injury. Yeah you're telling me. The clippers wouldn't be in the finals if Quite and go down. I mean in. Now he's really down with the acl surgery. He's going to be down for next year. So the whole western landscape is is changed. But it's interesting because you said that. Who's who's the most exciting player in the nba. Right now luka doncic. He's not an american and he's gonna play for his country and who's the mvp yokich yokich so don-shik and yokich to me is the new rizzoli isles. The best player the best all around player. You gotta say johnny so those are three three guys right exactly. That's it though. Yeah i mean truth. Those are the facts. Those are the data that shows you. How like david stern had a plan. The old rabbi had a plan. i'm going to grow this game internationally. In such a way in the dream team coming out and playing in barcelona and ninety two was the beginning of all that. We're gonna grow it in such a way and so and now to me that is the total cashing in of that whole thing. Is that if you are the best players and players that everybody loves. They are three players. That are american born incredible. And i think that we we have to recognize that. And it'll you have to realize we're a basketball powerhouse. Just like brazil is a soccer powerhouse. Argentina's and it's a global game now so like we need to send out. We need to like not. Just throw it together. Throw a bunch of stars together. We gotta like pick a team that were good for the teams right. Like a rebound you need. You need put guys at jell together you. Obviously they got the best coach. There we gotta start looking at it like Like the world cup. It's like dude. I agree teams are better man. These teams are better now. Scrape point all right. Let's move on to The congress which happened last weekend. And i know we shouldn't pay attention to look to jake. Paul it's like looking. It's like watching an accident as you're driving on the highway. If you stop to look at it you feel like you're contributing to the traffic behind you and you're like why are we doing this. But in some ways. Like jake. Paul like i. I hate to say he's kind of on the right side. The argument now and so the question is how soon does conor mcgregor devolve to a place where he fights jake. Paul j. paul who has four inches on him and thirty pounds. Okay i think conners five nine hundred fifty five jake. Paul is six one two hundred One eighty five or one nine so like he's got a forty pounds in three or four inches. Whatever i mean. He is like a different person fighting different. Like do you think he's too fragile. And is this where this is going. It's like you can't ignore it fully because it'd be a huge payday for conor mcgregor and that feels like swale. He wants right now. Well i think it's not gonna happen. Because i think tyrone woodley is going to hurt. Jake paul us think do you really do. Yeah i say again when is that fight habitat fights in the end of august. Tyron woodley is i mean. He hasn't won in a little while he is forty or something like that. I think he's lost his last four fights but he's a former champion and unlike ben aspirin who was not not a striker at all long. Zero tyron. Woodley was a strike. He was he was grappler but he can strike right. He can strike hard. He can hit you hard. He knows how to move his head. and so he's going to get hurt because he's a real fighter. So i think that this jake paul. We'll get hurt by him. And then jake. Paul's status will drop. And i think Mcgregor will never fight. Jake paul in. Because he's he's already rich man he doesn't need. You can still fighting them that next pori fight when they fight again is he's got like a twenty five million dollar payday right there. And he's like i'm easy. Athletes top of the forbes list right now duty may wind up fighting pori.

"Him play. How how amazing athlete. He was jealous herschel. Walker and herschel walker to and just talked to one of nine herschel walker personalities and j simpson like you know he killed even after he retired. His strength was still he had this main. He's it's not easy to completely sever all you know so like i've tried and i only got half way right. Sure so to get to cut. Through all the way through a jew it takes takes. Oh no but seriously like you see it happening. Now in the exhibitions in basketball rest of the world has caught up to america american percent america. When you when you out the bradley beal like you can't just put out bradley beal and expect it start. We gotta start doing a little. Cloning we gotta make a couple of lebron's we gotta do what the russians did do brawny out there man. He's on his way he showed out at his. Aau gay but no no no. You're right like we need to put the best players we with the best team out you like. You don't want chris paul out there okay. Yeah obviously you can't play right now but you don't want that guy you want you want What's his face. Jrue holiday over. Chris paul that like whoever's putting this thing together so i'm watching the nba finals. And it's it's this is relevant to what you just about bo jackson. Bo jackson was a size and speed. That you just don't normally see. You might see guys as fast as bo jackson now. They're not big. You might see guys as strong as bo jackson size wise. But they're not as fast and they don't have the moves they don't have the football iq and they can't do that so he put it all together. And it's when you think of like jordan or lebron like you look at jaanus onto takubo. He's okay look us to lesser known. Ones yeah other jaanus that matters in sports but not as much as you you look at the other. Jaanus the greek freak the other greek freak that he his his body is so insane and the way he can just bullying and just knocked people off and then just be standing in front of ram and just dunkin. It's amazing but he can't shoot free throws so you're like there's a plan to gum up the thing we can stop him. There's a way to stop him whereas again. You look at chris paul. And you're like wow this dude you want him to have the ball at the end of the game because he knows what to do he's never gonna make the wrong decision if he gets fouled. He's going to sink his free throws he knows how he can hit the shot with the brook lopez and a hand over his face. He's amazing but he's also six feet tall. He's probably the best short point guard in history. I would say better than john stockton if we could pull john stockton away from an anti vaccine rally. We could ask him about that though. Shorts down your shorts. Now but a bush donning take get a prick in your arm so we said if his shorts running higher they'd be a belt if the shorts it'd be a mini skirt miniskirt. But the the idea that like you. Then start to say well jordan. Michael jordan just had the body he just was it. He was six foot six. He was the right size to take on guards that were smaller than him. He was the right size. He had the ability to jump in a way that people just couldn't guard him so he could defend and he could any sunk shots and he was a winner. It was like you you start to understand why the best of the best of the best when you see these great players playing right now. You're like they're still not jordan right. Well i was gonna say i mean. I think he had all that but then he had that psychopathic of being born without emotions. Yes and being like a horrible person helps you. If you're a great athlete because look kendall gill had the for example just to think of someone random who had that prototype ethical six six. Yeah athletic will. I mean you you put them with michael jordan probably You know his verticals probably similar body. Athleticism didn't wanna rip your throat out. He was so it's like would ted. Bundy have been a great point. Guard probably k. But he took a different path. He put up numbers either way the numbers he sold saying when people talk about the intangibles you have to include you copy as something. That is an advantage in whatever you do. You're going to do good so me. Covered by emotions. Being unencumbered by emotions is very valuable in a competitive field. Agreed agree totally. So let me ask you this. Because we just went through wimbledon where naomi osaka was like. I'm not playing. She's just her feelings. Yeah opted out feeling so so there is like so part of me is like i understand why john mcenroe makes the statement which he got a lot of blowback for where he's like you know we didn't worry about that shit in my day like you just sucked it up and you played but then you so that's fine and so we got to see great stuff but then like wait. Didn't bjorn borg. Almost kilims eat tried to commit suicide a little bit later. Yeah that probably had something to do with him sucking it out sucking it up during the times where. He probably should have spoken about how he was feeling. Or how about. You know like that. You start to see like serena williams can tell like she never gonna win another major again. She just is never going to a grand slam again because she has a kid and when you have a kid you're like my attention is now my focus is not on this thing right here. So she's also fifty. So i mean she's all she is remember when we when we were kids like you're sixteen. You played to twenty three and then you were an old caveat. Caveat is another example. She liked play when she was fourteen. Everyone's like she's amazing. She's great and then she was like no. I gotta smoke some pot and get out of this thing. Crag she did a little crack. I mean the the was the nice part. She did a little crack. She did a little bit of crap. He's like little crack and then came back and won a major so too and she did that and it has family where she was. She was only taught to cook sauce the that she even got into tennis and got out of her. Dad's house a lot of credit to capri hoti toy. Hell yeah elliot and a lot of credit to say about beyond bjorg. That's not a big deal for him because he's swedish. I mean swedes wanting to kill yourself. One time a year is just part of their culture. I mean it's just it goes. Just it's like yeah what you do just say like this like this cold front it will it to pass it will pass and maybe you might pass this. Yeah like three quarters of the movie. The girl with the dragon tattoo is essentially. No i mean. That's that's true. But i i do think there. It's good that we're kind of talking about. Hey man this. This pressure is a lot but at the same time. You then have to say to numale sock okay. I'm so happy you're having this conversation because people need to talk about how they're feeling about things and you should not use. Keep it out in the open. Is there a way for her to be open about this stuff and at the same time. Be a champion. Like i'm like i can't just say i'm not going to do the interviews afterwards. Because she has to vote why she's getting paid millions of dollars. She is always a candidate to win. Just papa papa papa in and get out on the grass that she resenting yeah but listen you can't be too hard on her her mother's japanese which means they raise them. You know the work ethic for the japanese is a lot harder than we so like we grow up. We're like what do i want. Do want to be a comedian. I wanna be my brother. what do you wanna do. I wanna sit my old apartment. Do podcast we have a different work ethic like i think. They handed her racket while she was in the womb at the precious asserted in there and they tennis kids a lot of these times. And you don't any kid you see. I think the majority of them any person you see on the professional the you didn't have a childhood. Yeah you did not us instead of being a kid and now i feel like people are saying okay. I need to. I need to be a person. I need to be like. If any gymnast. I've ever seen who's like men on the us olympic team. Anyone have seen interviewed afterwards. As like. i wish i had a child. They're all are like it's like the old story. What's the old story. The guy who's like a ceo fortune. Five hundred guy goes down to this little island. Do you know the story. And he's fishing on this boat with this fisherman local fishermen who takes him out and he gets them and he goes i. I have a special spot where we're going to catch fish all day. It's the best. And i know this spot. And they go and he has the best day of his life and they catch so much fish. And so the ceo's like man let me help you okay. I make businesses. I'm here's what we're going to do where to get four more boats out here k. And we're going to be catching this fish all day long. He's like i know all the spots and that we'll get a boat in every spot right and then you take the money from all those things and you don't even have to pay for it. Then it'll be money making itself for itself. I'll contact all these ways to get the fish out to other places and you'll make money hand over fist and then before you know it you can retire. And he's like so. I can retire. So i can come back and do what i'm doing right now right. I gotta do all that god damn work so that i can come back and do the thing that i love. We just did all day today. And maybe not now is like i them. I don't want to be the greatest of all time. I don't wanna maybe that's too big a price to pay. Goes back to what you said you have to be inherently an asshole. Your drive has to be so strong to want to embarrass other human beings to want to be the best in a way. That isn't human if you have any shred of humanity inside of you. You're not going to be a champion champion. I'll take a little taste. Yeah i mean just don't meet your heroes. Okay because you know seinfeld's a hero mind. When i met him he told me. Don't look at me in the eye. And i was like. That's why guys the greatest. He is the greatest of all time. He didn't say that Also had something to do with the fact that food on the side of your mouth when you did. Yeah i mean. I'm making that up. He was totally nice nice. Let's take a quick break when we come back. We have three stories in the world sports..

"Which is the stupidest rule. I hate that i mean it's like the. Why give the team the advantage. That was won by a bunch of guys that aren't on that team number one and number two. I think voting for the all star games should be changed. I think to me it feels like and we talked about this last week on the show but it feels like Student government it's a popularity contest. Like you tell me fernando saying it's no longer determine okay so for nando tatis. Junior is one of my favorite players okay. I think he's one of the best. He was miked up during the game. Yesterday and Vladimir guerrero junior hits a home run and tat says something to him at. Joe buck is in his ear and say something to him as he runs by. He says something in spanish that we can understand and stephen smith lost shit about that kidding but the point is that like he said something to him as an totti's just starts laughing and i'm like how do you not love this guy. This guy is the greatest. Not only is a great player. Not only can. He jumped in the air. And then while he's in the air jump even higher video game style. He will never not be voted to an all-star whether he has a good hat first half or not. he's never going to not be voted in. So i think the coaches and sportswriters should pick the starters and the fans pick everybody else. What do you think yeah. Well you had that same issue. I think with Like in basketball. I remember when i was playing. He would like. I don't think he retired. And they still voted him as the next three years. Yeah he was just they. Just there's certain guys if you have a whole country behind you or if you have a great personality or yup if you know how some hackers who can really get in austria. God it russia. Yao-ming was running a vineyard and they asked him to come back. Wait a minute. What apply love was running vineyard and the players. I think the coaches and the players should the orders starters. Yeah and then let the fans vote for. Yeah let the fans vote for the relief pitchers so the middle relief pitchers. That's all you get you. Don't get the closers. Nobody the middle. It's crazy like the closer gets a lot of credit but he only pitches for like three outs. Usually the it gets a lot of credit. He gets shelled all the time. Yeah often games are won or lost with your bullpen. And those guys. I mean they get no credit elect a sweatshop of baseball right under all under appreciated they created a stat for them holds right but no one likes. He got into the hall of fame with two hundred and fifty seven holds. No one will ever say this but it is true. So i with more holds is jeffrey epstein folks but janas think about this the idea that like if you start. You aren't going to have that big of an impact unless you hit a home. Run at the verbiage really. The impact happens later in the game in the all-star so you wanna be a starter but you want the chance to win game like you're saying or close the door at the end so it's it's important to be the starting pitcher max. Scherzer pitched three outs. And then corbin burns came in and he pitched corbin bernsen in major league. I'm like this sucks terrible. You know what it is like. I truly believe the all star game shouldn't be taken seriously like just lean into it not mattering. It should be a break for the players that you'd be a fun thing for the fans they do. Fun games like have have have like have a fan. Going to water tank and then have pitchers dunk the fans. Yeah you know. Great homerun derby three point contest. Yes those are the fun to dunk contest. That's what you want to see. You don't really care about the game matter. Yeah so. I say and i've always wanted to see this. Just put a regular person and they have to put a regular person on their team. John s gets you decide. We're able to put your two outfitters like this and put that person in the middle and like have them cover all the ground and it's gonna cover for liability it's now you talking strategy now. It's like okay so you got like a mom of six from saddle creek new jersey or wherever and she's from bethesda maryland and now you've got to put her in and you got to find a play. One a context. How great would that be to announce it earth from wisconsin to bradley beal. She feeds she ally of all the deep left field. Sheila abramson underneath it. She's camping out. There is no way she's gonna to catch it. She has her person. If you wanna know how difficult it is to just to just catch a normal fly. Ball watch the homerun derby where these guys when they don't hit it out. Have you ever seen ever a kid on the field. Catch them on. Yes i know. Most of these kids don't have dads but still nobody. Nobody has ever so randy. And i we did a special for espn years ago. Trying to get jose ken no into the hall of fame as utility man and we went out onto the field during the all star game and it was in. Houston minute maid park and we try. I tried to catch a a snake. A line drive a line drive from from albert before you got on the field. Did they give you buzzers to know where the ball's gonna be hit or l. to jose. Altuva right is. That's the system works a certain way so so so Pools hits one and it's like curving towards the left field line and i'm in left field like we're playing the wall. Basically we played in high school. We're like we. We're doing like we know how to play baseball. And this ball was dropping and curving towards the line so fast i couldn't get it. I couldn't catch it. I had a beat on it. I knew what i was doing. I was in like shorts and like a jersey and add my glove on tennis. Shoes sneakers like at every chance to catch. The ball was thirty five. You're not gonna get it because these guys play on such an unbelievably different level. You can stand out in the field. But you're not gonna but i love that idea a normal person in the normal person you gotta cover them up. That's watching that if you can hit like let's say if you get chapman out there and if a normal person can hit hundred and three hundred three mile an hour fastball. Then that family gets the kia right. Oh if you if you get a hit of aroldis chapman and you're just a like a banker or a. You're just like a guy who dollars now z. A million she'd get the bobby baena contract a million dollars every year for the next thirty years from the matt's that's a good one and if you hit a ground ball just as a consolation prize you get to live in cuba guy. Hey come dream yet is which is the drab. It is a dream. Here's what what do you. What did you make of watching the home. Derby obviously want soto beat shohei otani in in an epic battle that went so routes you know we went to the overtime for a minute. And then they tied at that and then it went to three swings. An i mean it was just an incredible and soda to his credit was just bombing. But how much do you love this. Otani kit like it is hard not to love like i don't give a shit that he doesn't speak english. I'm like this. Dude is the coolest japanese superman i mean. It's it's incredible. I mean this hasn't there any other person besides ruth. i think it's on par with and i really do. I know it's it's. It's a separate thing but in terms of like shocking. Nece you know like in terms of shocking me or at least new some new to me. It's on par with bo jackson. Playing to sports on snyder's like it's just. It's just beyond like more like bo jackson. Because bo jackson was actually pretty good on the royals like he was he was wasn't bad man dion sanders was not a bad player on the braves. 'cause i remember when like didn't they have. There is an thirty grade thirty for thirty. Where lewd like three different events and tried right lay on all the things. Yes but bo. Jackson was like a legit player for the royals. He was in the mix for them. Yeah he was an all star. Incredible when you think of what he did. You're like that's just.

It's the unpredictability of at all. Never knowing when the next big moment will happen. Huge wins and crushed dreams. It's the drama of it all. You just can't make this stuff up that's the nba. that's game the nba playoffs are happening. Right now don't miss. All the action is welcome back to the show. We are so psyched to have this dude on. We've been a fan of his comedy. is rare that dude's do sports and comedy to. It's a very rare thing. I made some. Comedians are fans of sports. A lot of them hate sports which is kind of why. A lot of people got into comedy. 'cause they're like the athletes gave me shit and so now but we also feel like you see it in the way that we do. There's a lot to make. Fun of in the world is sports. There's a lot to sort of dig. There's a lot of blind spots that athletes have or of course. Talking about janas pops. Hide him buddy. Good good and you're absolutely right about that. And the best and only way to make fun of sports is with other comedians. Because i've had a sports show your you are not allowed to make fun of the athletes to the athletes. Like the publicist coming right away. They're like okay. We have these deals. Don't say anything. And they tire arms. One hundred were based at like how they like. You guys should have a sense of humor about yourself. Like life is good for you. You're making tons of money. You're you're doing what you love to do. Like aaron rodgers gets it. Air rodgers makes fun of himself. Aaron rodgers cuts himself down in his like relaxed. Like this thing. Aaron rodgers gets it. Tom brady does not right. Yeah and it's like look. This isn't a dictatorship right. You're not king john un. i can make funny. Stop making me feel like this. Is north korea. This is america so a very jeeter. I want to joke about how you should be in the hall of fame for putting up pussy numbers as well. I mean he put him. I should be able to do that. He put eric teeter where you should be in the hall of fame for for gift baskets given issued a record ami so seen record athen bodyworks hall of fame. First-ballot or right there crabtree and evelyn. You're at the top buddy. He's the collects classy. That's class like you see someone and then in the morning there's a gift basket for you. Boom top co op. So so nancy junk. That's he preparation. He it's attention to detail. It's understood having a game plan before you go in. Did you watch the all star game by the way i did. Watch the all star game. I didn't watch this all star game did but i did watch the home run The home run. What you think is the most impressive. I mean this hasn't been done babe. Ruth it's pretty crazy. Does pete alonzo to you. Feel like chrome magnin man. Like a guy who hasn't fully evolved yet. I feel like he's watching him dance. And i'm like you're not really dancing to the music and yet you can take big stick and hit ball very very far. I think he just reminds me of a guy who wants to hit things. Hard right and thank god. He's playing baseball and not banging on like kids or something right. Yeah no i to me. It feels like a guy who's figured out a way to get around the current steroid testing right. He's many figured so whatever. He's taking his so. Undetectable dude his traps. Like you could probably you could like take a sledgehammer to even get a dent into that. He has no. He's going to have a great recipes career and then we'll probably lose him just like ken committee right recipe or not or not. Let me ask you this about Pete alonso because you're new york about the mets. He is like amazing. Why can't the mets give any run support whatsoever to the greatest pitcher of our time right now in the national league the mets. I think they're curse. I think some type of transfer happened from the cubs to the mets. Yeah where they sort of just took purses don't energies never created or destroyed it changes forms transit just went on the transfers. We're what we're doing now is just like just like we're dealing with the delta variant with the virus another strain just dealing with another strain occurs stat has mutated to the mets. Yeah it is it shows you. How much of sports is mental. How also shows you. How much how ingenious. Yeah just in credit like the fact that they can transfer they can do. They can cyber attack they can. They can move curses around their frustrating fan bases. It's kind of amazing when you have to give credit where credit is due. They are a cera tissues bunch. That is absolutely well. I mean i. I kind of like the mets have a lot of pieces. They should end. Also the national league east is just garbage. It's dog shit so like anybody can win. Like top. the whole national league is dog shit because when you the except for the dodgers when you think about it when has the national league one the all star game can you remember who was president. Like never god. I mean before the iphone was his. Yes maybe i don't even remember and you can't even blame the d. h. advantage right because they they switch it every year corral. Why do you think that is d because look the dodgers won the the nationals one. So you've had it's not like only american league teams are winning. It's not like the golden state. Warriors in the member of the west was just so good for so long and no one the east. You're like the winter champions. Not gonna come out of the east in basketball. It's like there are nationally teams that win whereas the team may be is designed better to win and if the astros hadn't cheated them. The dodgers have won in two thousand seventeen to one. The last national. The national league has won three times since nineteen ninety seven. That's unreal dude thrown time. Should i think part of that is because they won league has the word american in it. Yeah and so you know a little more patriotic and then the other side. Maybe they're flirt. With communism i mean. I'm no i'd also i'll say this network we're flirting with nationalism in our country and maybe there they've got the wrong way we do to sixty three to nineteen. This is like michigan versus ohio state. Nineteen sixty three to nineteen eighty five so that twenty two years span than the american league won three times so the balance of power has shifted so in the last twenty four years twenty three years. The national league has won three times in the american league has won twenty times now. Are they still doing the thing. Where the this the winner of this game.

"Going to get it all that with him. But i don't know if you watch the all star game. I did watch. All star game received nine like at approximately. I want to say. Almost eight point six eight point six million people at. It's actually the home run. Derby eight point. Six million people watched it at its height. Do you know what. Nba a game three of the nba walkie. Nine million nine hundred so pretty close people who are saying baseball's on life's i mean baseball's on life support. It's interesting that we're that. I bring that up only to state okay. Basketball has its you know. The storyline basketball are fascinating. An amazing you've got you know. You've got chris ball vying for his first ring. You've got Jaanus speaking of janas papagiannis enter toco. Who has an opportunity to. i mean. He's literally putting the team on his back on his injured leg and trying to carry them across the finish line. Tim franchise that haven't had championship. Ever if two years or ever devon booker and deandra who looks like he's uncle drew's uncle. His great uncle. Great uncle drew. Its name but there isn't a new york team in it. There isn't the lakers lost. It ever agrees. Don't have it san francisco. So it's kevin durant is not in it. Smaller market teams. And so the problem is you're just not captivating the general population people who aren't fans. What are people who aren't fans of basketball going to latch onto the casual fan. You can't just say. I'm watching. Lebron james watching the greatest of all time watching steph curry. Who's fun to watch has fun while he's playing. I'm not a fan of basketball. But i like watching them. You're not hearing a lot of that right. What you where you are hearing. That is in baseball. In which is why the homerun derby was so watched Which was it was fascinating. Pita lonzo just crushed the hell out of the ball. It was but i would argue. The reason why people were watching was shohei otani of course. Hey showed up money showtime showtime. This dude is amazing. He's like a myth. He's so big he's like. This almost looks like a cartoon character. Come to life like if you're drawing like character of japanese you don't like superman like a japanese superman mike that he literally came out. The pages of a comic book can throw the ball with fire. Coming off of hundred miles hundred hit digits on the gun as a starting pitcher and crush the hell out of the ball in one. He's got some of the most the quickest bat speed. I've ever seen his bat. Speed is amazing. His swing his ability to turn on a ball effortless. Incredible he is amazing and he is the face of baseball now this week. Stephen a smith stepped in it big time. And what are we talking about scale. Come on scared. There is no skip. He he literally stepped in it and the truth of it is he. He could have avoided it so easily. So for those. Who don't know stephen a smith. Who's the outspoken pundit for. Espn essentially said that shohei otani will not be a mask superstar because he refuses to learn english speaks through an interpreter and essentially without saying it was like. We're not gonna get behind this foreign dude right and then to his credit stephen smith i would say he went ninety percent towards a full throated apology k. I he's thinks he went one hundred and ten percent. But i saw it as ninety percent. Okay to a full throated apology to any. Did say i'm sorry. I didn't realize that my words would cause this the fact that he didn't realize it like we should also take a look at. That's the ten percent that i want him to take a look at but you know an and he needs to say the step further and say i need to look at the way i view all these things and the way i prepare for these shows because i was lazy and that was wrong a week earlier. He did a take on like. Why aren't we marketing this guy more and then he said well there's no way to market this guy because he's refusing learn english end the end. Now we're having the discussion so to stephen as credit. He's putting the discussion. He's putting himself out there to be like. Let me be the lightning rod to then have this discussion. Which i think is great in. Espn in there. They actually did handle it. Well by bringing on asian american writer to sit and talk to him about it in and literally explained to him why it was so hurtful in which ways and stephen took it man i give him credit but he could assaulted so easily if he just would have done a quarter turn and said shohei otani is the best thing in baseball period hands down. It is the greatest thing in baseball period. Maybe one of the best stories in the last twenty years exactly so he. He's amazing he's incredible. He deserves to be the face of baseball. And i think it can happen now. Am i worried. Here's why i'm worried. And i'm not worried for me because i love him. I think he's incredible. I am worried. Because i think there are elements of our country. And i think this is wrong elements of our country. That won't accept him because he speaks interpreter and we need to blast that out of the water. We need to have gone at it from that angle same angle. He's basically saying the same thing right. It's just he's it quarter turns it so that he's on shohei side. It's a completely different thing. So he gets his point across that this might be a layer. That regular people won't be able to get behind but he sang it from thing of like. We need to eliminate that. I think he doesn't even have to go that far. I think it could be as simple as he could have said. Look this guy is the best thing that's happened to baseball. In a very long time period. He has good looks also. He's good looking dude and he has charisma. You can see. He has hurries. Mma president and the stephen as like if he wants to. And this is if this is only for him if he wants to make a dent in american culture beyond baseball if he wants to become a personality a marketable in the same way. That lebron is marketable is the same way that other guys remarkable if he wants to find his way into the public consciousness in american take that next step to cement superstar on the michael jordan level of things he may have to learn how to speak the language of the country that he's in order to connect with people on a non baseball level if he just made it about that and if he said look and and then again maybe point to like. You said that's you know. Unfortunately the reality of the situation. I would love to change that but you might have to change this first day. You are a voice. stephen a. i love listening to on the radio. News fantastic love him. He is a voice of inclusion for african american rights for minorities. All for my all the time so i think that's also why this felt like a weird swipe like he wasn't the guy to be doing this. I could see if alex jones went out there on done. Some right and i would have seen stephen a come to the rescue and say that's bs. That's bullshit don't do that. It just felt like he made a misstep and dry to clean it up. But i agree with you. Didn't quite go all the way he. He needs what he needed says. I need to look at all the things and not be so lazy. They're and that's it. And say. Look i i i pride myself on preparedness. I prepare every take care. I research in and i have my take airtight. But that one wasn't and i need to prepare. And so you know what. I actually think shohei otani could be the type of guy that maybe doesn't need to lose the interpreter. And he becomes this ananta valenzuela's interpreter he zero for now. Fernando valenzuela didn't need to drop the interpreter in order to capture. Everyone is dead. I think he could be this new thing that this sort of nonverbal thing this sort of you know he he could rise above in transcended insults way because his plan the field by the way people are going to imitate not the way he talks but the way he swings the bat kids are going to just imitate him and wanna be him. Come to the ballpark. Nobody comes to the ballpark to say. What's the internet. What's his soundbite. No they go to. They go to watch him. And this guy's the most watchable. I'm baseball like bigger than anybody else bigger. Mookie betts you're gonna justin turner. I would argue bigger than mike trout. I would argue. Mike trout too. So i mean maybe the problem is he's in los angeles in anaheim which is like being in the witness protection program but you know what with mike trout coming back. Maybe they make a run. Maybe this little postseason run really to get my conscious of everybody. I love him. Stephen smith just just go that extra ten percent and say i need to prepare better and i was lazy and then i. It's all behind you all right. That is it. That is our top. Take we come back you. On his policies. I'm so excited to get into it with him. because to have a comedian who got a comedic take on. The world of sports is like having old golden.

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'
"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'
"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps
Perspectives on China and global power
"How will the struggle for power between China and the US play out. And how will it determine the future world order, Fred Stedman, put this question to China expert, Ron meter he was reviewed a series of books looking at the issue from different perspectives. Ron, thanks for coming in. You looked at a number of books for us in a book Sesay about China and the west. And what struck me right? From the get-go was that you talked about this interaction between these great powers, China and the west, the US is being almost unique in its complexity, and I thought, why is that? Why is this more complicated than other great power interactions, that we've witnessed over the centuries? I think it is different. And the reason fundamentally is that we've never seen an engagement between two different types of regime that are so closely intertwined so different in terms of their values. So if you think back to the Cold War, we had at that time, basically, to political and economic systems, which were fiercely opposed to each other, but they didn't actually connect all that much. Of course, we were all terrified at the threat of nuclear war, but the Soviet Union's economy was not a major factor for the west and vice versa that AKU. It's not remotely true for the People's Republic of China. It is the second biggest economy in the world. It is now a primary economic actor in pretty much every single continent of the world and the United States. Of course, in China have been entwined in terms of finance for more than twenty years, more like thirty. Really? So the fact that we now have a rising China, which from the point of view of many liberals in the west but elsewhere has variety values particularly, of course and authoritarian type of government that is very different from what a liberal government would put forward, but it's not a place that we can simply close off or ignore that provides dilemma that was still right in the middle of solving on both sides, and one of the aspects of that. I think I'm right and say you say there's a choice there. Do we engage more with China and we're seeing this stuff that's happening in the world of technology while way, and whether it should be allowed to be part of the five G project or do we push back and one comes with a security risk? And the other one comes up tension financial economic risk that. That's lemon. But let me give you a specific example. Let's take away, which, of course, it's become this company that in the UK where we're sitting. Now, nobody had heard of probably not nobody very few people a year ago. Now, of course, is a headline every single morning on the news usually pronounced in a variety of other creative ways Hawaii audit wrong is not an upset. Right. I've heard is one prominent politician refers to it as Hawaii, which is not quite the same thing. I think that's not so much of an issue. So ten twenty years ago, we might have said that the biggest threat from the Chinese technology sector was that they were basically borrowing without commissioners, the polite way to put it intellectual property from the western world from the US from Britain from Europe Chinese would basically, taking technology that they hadn't paid for an putting into their machines had to be stopped. That is no longer the main problem does exist. But the wider problem is that actually China is now producing its indigenous technology to a very very high standard. So the reason that the United Kingdom, for instance is having a debate about whether or not, they put while way equipment in the five G network is nothing. With intellectual property theft. It's the fact that the cheapest highest quality most effective broadband network. You can have is made by hallway, and if you don't have that, then you're basically saying that you have to give an alternative company, the rights to put in the network that may actually not be at the moment, overs, higher quality. So there's a genuine balance between quality. And as you say, the question, whether there's a security risk or not, that's a new dilemma, not just for the UK but for the entire liberal world fascinating, I wanna come onto the books now because we get a perspective from China. So it's a bit more about a few from Beijing in terms of how these relationships are going to develop, what China sees its role and the other they have different conceptions of types of political systems, one of the books. I've reviewed in this particular China books essay is book leadership in the great powers by yen Shu at home. Professor yen is a very senior scholar in China. He's at Ching-ho university, one of the top institutions in that country. And he's become known. I'd say of the last. Twenty years or more in that particular field as probably one of the three or four best known most respected analysts of China's international relations. Now international relations terms without getting too technical. He's what's known as a realist is the accusation that sometimes put Henry Kissinger, Henry Kissinger, his pushes back and says, he's an idealist in realists, clothing, or was that effect. In other words, what professor yen believes is that power is the thing that actually makes a difference. So that's the position he's always had. That's why this book is so interesting, not just about him, but about China, because it makes actually in some ways rather, different case, a case that, if China is going to take fullest vantage of its rise in the world. The fact that it is now the second biggest economy in the world, and may by GDP be the biggest one within ten years. The fact that it is this huge international actor than it has to change the way, that looks the world, not just talk about power relationships, but also about what you might call the human relations, the narrative, that surround saddened, professor Yannis jesting that it will be time, maybe not yet but. Quite soon for what he calls, a more humane, the what he used the humane view of how China should relate to the rest of the world. Now that is in a sense, part of a process that we've also seen earlier with the most recent hegemony in world politics, the United States, which of course, became a power that had more battleships and more fighter planes, than anyone else particular during World War Two, but really seduce the world through what's become known as soft power. In other words, having a story to tell the world, I read professor Jens Booker saying that China has got the military. It's got the realist power. Now, it has to find the story and does he believe the Chinese leadership is current inclination to they buy that will this is one of the things that you have to read quite carefully in the book. It's not I would say a book to necessarily put next to a thriller at an airport. You know, it does take a bit of time. But I'd say get a glass of wine, give it a good going over, because it's well worth it prevents. The end doesn't at any point in the book talk about the current leadership, so Xi Jinping. The current president of China is not mentioned for Donald Trump is Donald Trump is along. With a few other names. So the United States certainly comes into the line of fire, you might say, but the wider question that he also is one that is very relevant China, which is, is the current system that China's operating, which, as we know is one that has been economically, very, very effective in terms of growth rates in terms of creating a kind of middle class, that's now, see very, very powerful in China and creating a sorta prosperous lifestyle that many consumers in China very much enjoy, but also really closing down political discourse. Is that going to be the way in which trying to get to the next stage in the implication? It's an implication of a statement but it isn't implication, is that maybe China's going to have to go beyond that if one looks at conclusions that he comes through. And again, this is very interesting because it is so much view from Beijing from thinker who is well respected both in the western China in that field, is that there's not going to be a war. This is not a story about a confrontation between China and America on the military front. But the is going to be a sort of battle for ideas and the dominance. Spouts largely economic in the Asia Pacific region. He does say very firmly the Asia Pacific region is where you're going to have to look, if you want to see what comes next for world politics. It's moving away from Europe moving away from North America. The Pacific for yen is where it's at right. Which is also the subject of one of the other books, that you looked up as referrals, China and Japan which comes to some interesting conclusions. I think it's fair to say it makes some interesting observations. It absolutely does Ezra Vogel is a scholar, but also a diplomatic figure who has actually sort of seen the rise and change in America's relationship with Asia, over the decades, he served in the Clinton administration, as secretary of state, and he became very famous in the seventies earliest that with the book who Japan as number one, which was on every business leaders bookshelf, as well as the cost many scholars, but he's always been a speaker both Chinese and Japanese and this book is about China and Japan, their shed history, which he points out, actually is not always as confrontational as it sometimes appears. We tend to think, of course of. The second World War when the two countries did have a massive conflict, of course. But he also points out that, for instance, if you look at statistics in the last few years, a few years ago, when tensions were pretty high between the two countries something like a million million a half Chinese visited Japan pass, not that many that number last year two thousand eighteen is more like eight million. So if you look below some of these surface rhetoric is saying, actually, there is a more cooperative story about economics about tourism about cultural values that are shared the maybe means the countries aren't as far apart as they might be. And this is I think, part of the white of Vogel, viewpoint because he comes from that generation of Americans who sought as part of their duty. I think in the post World War Two era to try and create a sort of agreed shed set of values in a stable community in East Asia America course, encouraged that in Europe, very successfully European Union NATO and so forth. It's never quite worked out in the same way in Asia. But that hasn't stopped a lot of those people actually, I think trying over and over again to create that similar sorts. Of stability for go. Yours decided mentioned former administration official, but other American voices take sort of more by guessing old money once say hawkish view new picked up on one someone. I believe you're actually at one point taught Jonathan ward who's written a book China's vision of victory which sounds alarmist oil is very concerned, and feels the American needs to be much more assertive in its response. That's right. Yes. New Jonathan ward. I taught history when he was an Oxford where I teach. But this book is very much about current affairs, and it's very much about policy not about history as such. And yes, I think it's fair to say that the argument he puts forward in the book is one that says that China is used the phrase hawkish, I'll say, clear and present danger, that's probably the phrase that comes to my mind. When reading it now, should say the book is one that has a great deal of information in it. It's got a lot about military power, and how China's building up its navy in particular. It's got a lot about economic power, and also of course a lot about values and the argument there, essentially is that. The United States, whether it wants to or not is going to have to deal with the fact that China is there to challenge the United States. So in a sense, that's a different story from the end should tone story where he's basically saying look the Americans and the Chinese are both going to be in the Pacific, where they're going to have to engage with each other. What story will, maybe it's time for America to actually set down the red lines if you can set down the red line in the Pacific Ocean. And actually say thus far and no further so between them those books actually point out in some ways, where the difference of view comes in terms of what's going to happen in the next decade in that Asia Pacific region. You mentioned around all the books that sort of sense that there are tensions, there is a competition of ideas, but the, the authors dancing, we're heading towards some military confrontation. And that things will be settled through dialogue to share that. I think you can see a generational difference in these books, which was as I say, in the essay, it's was reading them in tandem, because they all say something slightly different than they make up out of the picture for. Yang Tong speaking from Beijing. But, you know, with I think quite measured frame of mind. The argument is about to powers that have to live with each other, which have the potential to be confrontational, but not necessarily military sense. Maybe more on the economic sense. I think it's fair to say that as revivals book is talking about the areas where you can find agreement rather than disagreement between the actors and that in a sense, reflects his long decades of experience in the region. Jonathan ward is of a different generation. He's in his thirties. He's living, right there in the policy world of Washington DC right now, and the world, he sees is a much more confrontational. One, one in which America and China have different goals, different values different viewpoints. And that maybe just maybe those can't be contained together. Now, we're going to have to see what happens to work out in say the trade war between China and the US whether that actually could reach something more like a confrontation, but reading three books makes you realize that actually all of these viewpoints exist simultaneously. In part of the existential struggle almost is about what? Which one of them is going to prevail. Ron amid. Thank you very much. Thank you for it. That was Fred Stephen F teabags editor talking to Ron Mischer director of the Oxford University, China center. Thanks for listening.
