Small businesses thrive or struggle amid pandemic
"Never in my wife, have I seen an economic situation is confusing. With the Cross currents that we have right now. We have tens of millions of Americans they continue to suffer mightily from unemployment underemployment. Medical problems, financial hardships. is just crazy and then at the same time. That are doing quite well. One area where people were very very. Unhappy and suffering mightily. Is the small business sector of the economy. And certainly, there are small businesses that have been devastated by corona virus and had a brutally hard time. Many businesses that have shut down for good. The same time other small businesses. Are doing quite well, and this creates these cross currents that are so. hard to understand and so confusing. Well. The NFL I be, which is the Trade Association for Small Businesses National Federation independent businesses puts out. A survey on business attitudes every month. and. This is what's crazy. The, what they call their optimism index. is at one of the highest numbers ever at one Oh four. Back in late spring, it was at seventy five. At, the same time. The uncertainty numbers are way up which speaks to how confusing. The current economic situation is. Businesses. Very, significant number of businesses that have survived. Wildly enough are thriving now. and. People. Are once again. Investing in their businesses, the number of business owners in the survey who are expanding their businesses is rising. So that's why. It is. Such a befuddling time because it completely depends. On what kind of small business you are. How you're being affected by this, this is why certain cities or regions. Are being brutalized. By our current corona virus influenced economy well, others are doing quite well the oil region tourism regions just absolutely being hit over the head with a two by four. Massive job losses. That sort of thing, and then other areas are doing quite well any area of the country, any metro area that is very heavily technology oriented. Doing extremely, well, certain manufacturing sector's doing well. The good of this is that we are not in a cyclical downturn in the US economy where basically. Everything, is doing poorly in everybody is pessimistic. And the environment we're in now helps create. A better and quicker recovery then we might expect otherwise during a recession. But there are a lot of businesses and a lot of jobs. That will not come back until the cloud of people's fear of infection from Corona virus lifts, which I am putting at some point. Late summer early fall of twenty one. So. There are people among us who don't fear Corona virus. But. There's a larger percent of Americans who do and it has shifted how they live their lives, what they do, and what they'll spend their money on, and that's why the economic situation. Is So. Choppy.
Why My Mother Has Two Phones
"A micro audio book about life in befuddle men just for you. Our story this week is from BB, Nicholson who you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is. Why my mother has two phones and why it's driving me crazy. My mother lives with me. She is one hundred and one, and she is as attached to her telephone as a phone addicted teenager. Where's my phone? She asked every thirty minutes when she first moved in which led to a massive search that involve digging through the crevices of her recliner shaking out the blanket that covers your lap groping under her chair rippling through the overflowing contents of her Walker and delving into the pockets of pants, which is usually where we found it. It isn't a smartphone and she doesn't use the camera figure. She doesn't use any features for that matter. She has a flip phone. All she needs to do is flip it open to answer which is sufficient for the ten to fifteen calls. She gets every day he yes you heard me right she gets ten or fifteen calls a day. Sometimes she talks for several minutes laughing answering questions and ending the conversation with I. Love You too when she hangs up and I asked her who it was. She says I have no idea. She got a call the other day from a stranger who said, do you WANNA prayer today? She hung up on them My brother and sister called several times a day just to check up on her and their favorite topic of conversation is food. What did you have for lunch? That's sounds good. What's for dinner? I don't know what bb is cooking, but I guess I'll have to eat it whatever it is. Mama's phone is her lifeline to the outside world even when she doesn't know who's calling or even if they only talk about food. But two phones are one phone too many. By now you're probably wondering why she has to phones and this is where I need to confess. She used to have one phone and I accidentally washed it. I sent it through the washing machine when I put in an armload of clothes and the phone came out laundered and dead my brother and sister told me to immerse the phone in rice which I did but it didn't work phones don't often survive a trip through the washing machine. My mother is on my brother's family phone plan and when I told him, I washed it, he said he would get her another one in the meantime. She couldn't go phone homeless try taking the phone away from your teenager and you will know what I'm talking about. So I got her a track phone from Walmart called the relatives and friends who are responsible for her ten or fifteen calls a day and gave them the new number. Mama was happy again, five weeks later, my brothers new phone arrived I called family and friends again and told them to switch back to the old number. This sounds like a simple thing to do. But it isn't her relatives and friends are a decade or two younger than she is, which means they are in their eighties and nineties some of them don't here. Well, some of them don't process well and none of them understand why a woman who is one hundred and one has to phone numbers into months. But we finally got it straightened out. Everything was fine for a few weeks until something terrible happened. I washed her phone again. I had been checking her pockets carefully before every wash until I didn't. So after ruining her new phone I reactivated her track phone only this time around I ordered a phone pouch on a lanyard she tied the pouch to her Walker and her phone dangles in front of her all day. There is no chance I will wash a phone in a pouch on a lanyard tied to a walker. I had to call those same friends and relatives and tell them her number had changed again, which confused them but I finally got the message across and they began using her track phone number. Then my brother sent her another phone because she's on his family plan. Now. You've got to call everybody and tell them her number is changed again smirked my sister who was visiting when the new phone arrived. It's not going to happen. I can't deal with it I said, and that's why my mother has two phones. They both fit in phone pouch and she gets to decide which one to answer when somebody calls. It's a bit of a challenge. She already thinks she's getting a phone call whenever the phone rings on television. That was the phone on TV Mama. You didn't get a call I tell her from five to fifty times before she catches on and puts her phones back in the pouch. Sometimes, she answers the wrong phone, and by the time she gets to the other phone stopped ringing. Then I have to call back whoever it was because she can't see well enough to dial. But it's worth it if it keeps Mama happy I

"Mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life in befuddle men. Just for you our story. This week is from Andrew. Not who you'll find known medium DOT COM and here is how to escape your children's bedroom without waking them. I hear at least one of your offspring is a light sleeper and also requires your presence by their bedside until they have entered rim. How wonderful light sleeping and dependency are signs of extreme intelligence? Probably of course. That doesn't make things any easier. You're trapped in their bedroom right now aren't you? You've tried to get out four times but your child somehow stop snoring and wakes up every time you move remain calm. I know you've been there for several hours but I have a few tips to extricate you from your current predicament. One stay low. Assuming you're lying on the floor. Don't try to stand up and walk out of the room. I don't care if your child is sawing more logs lumberjack. At a logging competition standing up beside her bid is a recipe for disaster instead. Flip over on your hands the knees and crawl a safe distance away from the bed. A safe distance might be anywhere from five feet to seven miles if necessary crawl all the way out of the room out the front door down the street to the convenience store in the corner and ask the store attendant directions to the nearest deserted island. Use Your Gogo gadget arm to hook the doorknob on your way out. Open it ever so slightly and Shimmy gap. This won't work but it's still fun because it makes you feel like a Middle Age Ninja. What does this sound like too much work? Well I have one question for you. Do you love your child or not to replace any squeaky floorboards and recarpet with an extra thick pad while it might seem like replacing your entire floor. After your child falls. Asleep is impossible. Just think of all the banging and loud cursing your fitfully. Sleeping child is only programmed to wake in response to you trying to desert her any other noise no matter how loud is actually fine so go ahead and rip up that dingy carpet and bolt down any loose boards. That keep foiling your escape. Make sure to use an extra thick pad to dampen the sound of your movements and the screams you emit as you lie. Face down. Utterly demoralized practically devouring the plush fiber like. It was your last meal as you wail plaintively desperate for relief. Don't worry about getting perfect laying new flooring in the dark is hard if it's not perfect though. It won't help your escape and if it is perfect. It also won't help because your footsteps no matter how muffled reverberate with the unmistakable sound of betrayal and abandonment three work on your core strength. Let's face it no matter how well these tips work. You're going to be standing up and immediately sitting down when your child's startles awake at least one hundred times per night while you're lying on the floor in the dark trying to answer in penetrable questions your child lobs it. You like disheartening. Confetti bombs develop your core strength by doing a hundred or so crunches what happens if a dragon breathes fire on you while you're on the toilet. Oh dear how are we going to answer that one? Try One hundred more crunches while you're down there. Contemplating core strength isn't very useful for escaping the bedroom but everyone likes toned ads right four. Remove your skeleton. A recent study found that the leading cause of waking sleeping children while exiting their bedroom was creaking bones. Do you have creaky bones? If so it's time to make a change kiss that pesky skeleton goodbye and sweet freedom. Hello sure removing your entire skeleton one bone at a time until you're nothing but a helpless meet sack might sound extreme but look do you want to cling to your precious bones or do you want your child to grow into an adult capable of trusting others and maintaining lasting relationships. You could only choose one and really things will be much better without a skeleton. You will no longer creek like a rusty windmill. Every time you move and you'll be blogging across the brand new carpet and out of that bedroom in no time

The Care and Keeping of Your Extroverted Partner: Quarantine Edition
"Actor audiobook narrator and writer. I love telling and sharing stories about the strange experiences my friends and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life in befuddle men. Just for you our story. This Week is from Sarah. Lofgren who you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is the care and keeping of your extroverted partner. Quarantine addition extroverts are beautiful snowflakes. They're also annoying as hell thousands of years ago. Everyone was an introvert because the outside world was a dangerous place. Filled with tigers and centaurs also plumbing hadn't been invented yet so bathing was less common. This made social activities such as feasts and parades uterus affairs that no one really wanted to attend quarantines were easier back then sure there was no such thing as modern medicine and please don't. Google play boils but as long as people weren't sicker dying they pass the time indoors. Much more pleasantly as we killed off tigers and centers and as bathing became more common. Some humans began to find joy in the company of other humans. They went to sports games on purpose. They went to parties for fun and not just for free food weird. I know today we call these people extroverts. Extroverts can be wonderful despite their many faults. They're like beautiful puppies excited by all the possibilities in a crowded bar or an EDM festival. This behavior is confusing but endearing. Some of US have even partnered with extroverts not realizing that one day there would be a pandemic and we would end up quarantined in a small apartment with these lovely people wanting to murder them. Two hours into quarantine was your extrovert already. Whining like a puppy with both hands pressed against the window. Do they pay surrender. Living Room unable to even acknowledge the existence of books or paintbrushes. Are they dramatically proclaiming that they'd rather die than sit still and watch a BBC miniseries for eight hours my friends? I am sorry? Don't murder you're extrovert. The two of you can do this. Sure we're living in extraordinary times. But there are ways of managing this whole experience to make it more bearable and murder free for everyone involved. Create fake humans for them to talk to extroverts derive energy from interacting with other people. If you're the only person you're extrovert has to interact with for a long period of time. Things can get very ugly. The solution create fake humans. And use them to populate your quarantine area old towels can be shaped into bodies relatively easily dress them up in your clothes then drawn expressive face on a basketball or volleyball and use it as a head. If it worked for Tom Hanks in castaway it will work for your extrovert. Keep them entertained. With Puzzles and games. Extroverts need constant stern stimulation activities the rest of US consider stimulating like reading a novel or learning to embroider. Our pants don't do it for them. So considered treating your partner like the Otters at the Aquarium Everyday. Toss them new toys or activities to keep them mentally alert and engaged for example in case their daily clams in fun ice shapes or encourage them to practice swimming and quirky patterns. If it works for others it might work for your extrovert. Pretend there are monsters outside and stop bathing there with me here if the previous two steps don't work you're only remaining. Option is to return to a time when introverts were introverts and extroverts. Were introverts to remind them that the outside world is terrifying field would not only viruses but wild and hungry animals stopped bathing and convinced them that no one else has bathing either. Place a music from the dark ages on your iphone make tiger noises while they sleep and pay people to lurk threateningly outside your window. If you can create a sense that the outside world is terrifying and stinky
Episodes We Love - Emotional Abuse
"Was twenty seven years old. I had just moved to Portland Oregon. I just finished hiking on the Pacific crest trail on came here to make my life a nail and I was staying for a while with a woman who was really really one of my dearest dearest friends. I met her less than a year. After my mom died and She was a few years older so almost immediately. We became Not only really close but there is this dynamic where I was essentially enamored of her and she of me. She loved me so much and I loved her so much and often people when they met us would think that we were actually lovers and she would say these extraordinary things to me like nobody will ever love you the way I love you. Sometimes I imagined myself what I was doing on the day you were born and of course not only. Is this exciting? I think for anyone to hear when they're on the other end of that kind of love but you now I can really look back and see that. I was merely needing that particular kind of love because I was an orphan I was grieving the death of my mom. I didn't have a father. I was really alone and this friend opened up her heart to me and she felt very healing to me. Even though what I've come to understand is her. Love is extremely wounding to me too. And it's taken me years to recover from their relationship. I had with her because I knew in the relationship. This was happening but later I really came to understand it and that is that it was emotionally abusive relationship and she did a lot of things that you know later. I could see more clearly. Were really not in my best interests that were really destructive and manipulative and controlling one example. And this was very The kind of beginning of the end for me is that I had just Brian my husband and we've gone out on one or two dates. I hardly know him and I came home from one of our dates and I sort of sat on my friend's bed. My exuberantly told her about this guy. Brian I just met and my friend said to me. Do you love him more than you love me and I said of course not? I don't even love him. You know I only like him I I could. Our relationship could last another three days and I could never see him again for all I knew at that point and she said we you do something for me. Just one thing. Don't see him ever again. That's what I said inside myself. Wow and I said well what do you mean? Why would I do that? And she said I just don't want you to see him again if you really love me. Why can't you do this one little thing? She was extremely articulate. And so she had this way of being able to take things that I said in sort of turn them around so they fit into her vicious that. You don't even love him you but you love me. That's exactly what she said and I could never win an argument because she was so smart and she knew how to use language. In a way that I left me feeling kind of befuddled and also the only thing I could ever say as well that just doesn't sound reasonable and what took me forever to come to grips with and I think every person who's ever been in an emotionally abusive relationship relates to this is that I couldn't see clearly what was healthy. And what was unhealthy. What was reasonable on? What was abusive and part of why? I couldn't see that clearly is. The upside was so high up. She was an extraordinary woman right. She was one of the best friends I've ever had. That still feels true. Sadly and I got really a mashed in that Thinking that she couldn't be so bad because she was so good and I did disentangle myself but it took me years to to psychologically disentangle myself Ya. I think that being in an emotionally abusive relationship. The deepest loss is the loss at the south. The loss of the ability to think clearly about not only what you want but who you even are how did you get here and I was mired in that for a long time. Well after that relationship

I don't even need to publish bestseller or start a company. What's more I'll let you in on a secret? You too can avail yourself of this potential windfall. The beginning of my ride to riches occurred in the summer of two thousand thirteen gene on what started out as an ordinary day it ended as an ordinary day to but my assessment of the day as ordinary even even boring goes to show that the least significant activities. The stuff we are tempted to write off as forgettable are the things that catapulted catapult us to unexpected rewards. I remember the day. Well no or maybe not so well but I can reconstruct it. I was in the kitchen feeling those first pangs of hunger that surface when you've already had lunch and it's not time for dinner and you can't focus or do anything much until you've had something to eat. I could have reached for an apple or a banana but my craving was for something salty salty artificially flavored and devoid of all nutritional value. I reached for the giant variety snack. Pack I bought IT COSTCO CUSCO A few weeks earlier. Only to realize with dismay that all the potato chips and Fritos were gone. The only thing left was cheese. He's it's if you haven't figured out where this is going by now. You haven't read today's Wall Street Journal. The story is on page. Eighteen eighteen. Three women are suing. Kellogg's the manufacturer of cheese it because they feel misled and they want justice one the plaintiffs Linda castle purchase cheese. It's approximately three times in two thousand thirteen from Grocer in Torrance California her lawsuit and her pursuit of justice stem from the assumption that her cheeses contain more whole grain than the label would lead one to believe so what you might be thinking who cares if Linda Castle but she sits and believe she was consuming a health food. There's a sucker born every minute. According to P. T. Barnum. But here's the caveat. The cheeses were labeled whole grain and and although the box explains that they contained five to eight grams of whole grain for each twenty nine grams. Serving the plaintiff felt deceived received. Mrs Castle and the other plaintiffs are seeking damages other monetary relief and declaration corey relief. Whatever whatever that means although a federal judge dismissed the case ruling that the whole grains wording was factually correct and the label would neither mislead nor deceive a reasonable consumer the? US Court of appeals has reversed the dismissal. Here's where there I come in and maybe you if you've eaten cheese it anytime in the past eight years the plaintiffs want a class action suit consisting the of anyone in the US or its territories who has bought cheeses eight since two thousand ten. According to The Wall Street Journal there there are thousands possibly millions of people who bought cheese. It's all of whom munched away happily without formal complaint. The more I think about it the better I remember that fateful day when I reach for the cheeses I can still hear the bag. Cellophane Russell smell the cheesy odor. Her Savor the crunchy junk food. Taste my husband probably qualifies for the Class Action Suit to the other day. He fished just a bag of cheez. Its with a two thousand one expiration date from the back of the Pantry.

Googles Pixel 4 gets a really, really early tease (The 3:59, Ep. 571)
"The. Welcome to three Jinan Roger Chan. I'm Joanie Solomon Google decided surprised, everyone and dropping photo of the pixel forge next flagship phone and something that's supposed to come out until the fall. This is highly unusual. What do you think I'm here for it? Yeah. More transparency show us what you got don't. Let all these leaks legs set the tone in the conversation. That's true last. I mean, the pixel three light the budget phone was leaked completely before got launched Google does so maybe trying to get ahead way ahead of everyone. Right. One thing, one theory that are in lob opposed was idea that they teased out the square Cambe special multiple cameras. The iphone is also supposed to have one and traditionally, the pixel four launches the iphone. Maybe they just wanted to say, hey, we got here. I don't tell us where copying the iphone xactly. We were here first. All right. Let's talk about deep fakes and manipulate content. A video of Nancy Pelosi doctor to make her seem drunk made the rounds last week. Prizing was last week. Maybe two weeks ago, the surprising, how the different social networks, reacted Facebook kept the video, but added the fact check articles YouTube pulled Twitter actually kept on sort of suggests that like there really are no consistent rules about how social networks dealing with this content. And this seemed like they had no idea how to deal this content, and what experts say is that is a real flaw in, how're going to address, even more elaborate manipulations, like deep fix in the future. All the experts say what we need not only consistency in. In policies on social networks for dealing with it at the networks themselves, but also across that they engage with each other, and develop best practices also share resources, the only way they can really address these things if they worked together note that's not something, they're incentivized to do include be weren't in this situation rights, given how different Landale acted. And you listen to a house hearing on deep. Thanks there any highlights in terms of what they're talking about. It was definitely a theme throughout the conversation between the house representatives, and experts on the panel that social media is one of the key weaponization factors. Distributing, this sort of disinformation. And so it wasn't unreasonable for there to be these kind of questions that take these networks to task. Did you see the big Zucker Berg do? Yeah. Supercomputing all but and you know that came up on the panel like they brought up the Zakar thing. And one of the panelists experts noted, obviously, when this video says that Coburg says that I can control the future, obviously, that's not true because if he could he wouldn't be in the message and right now. So, you know, even the fact that I it is difficult. There are defects that are satire that are so Atlanta, they cannot actually believe it's hard to decide win something needs to be taken down under what circumstances, who target is. What are those? What are those rules yet? The point of the story that queenie wounded looking at the consistent reactions was. Yes. There's sometimes a line, their words. It could be parody. It could be commentary. And I think that's kinda wives social networks right now. Our little trapped in terms of like trap, but they're little befuddled in terms of how to deal with these videos. Right this content. Lastly, you want a review of a twenty seven inch Android tablet built into a GE oven hood, sticker price, only twelve hundred dollars a steel steel, would you want to put this thing on your oven plus side? Gotcha recipes and your YouTube videos on how great their in front of you in the pot. Yup. Downside putting all those Electric's right of an over. Yeah. Yeah. That's a little weird. The battery their power source. It's got all that, grease just like there's a lot of cleanup involved here. I don't know. It is on top of another hoods. Maybe. All right. That's one of the story.

And there's a lot of fascinating things that this is a portrayal of the nuclear meltdown at the Sonoma plant, and the aftermath, and it stunning because it is the most accurate portrayal of everything Soviet Union I've ever seen.

"How wa I'm all right? How are you guys doing great? Is taking this question. Overthrow by you, this let's start here. So she's pats in week six the Rams saints in a week nine of the four teams since those moments that I've referenced week six nine which team has changed the most and you could go either positively or negatively. Wow. I'm just inclined to say the patriots because they just do whatever they change every week. You know what I mean? Their finance team one week their power team the next. They don't blitz it. All they blitz every down. You know, they just continually reinvent themselves. I think if you go back to that point in the season, you know, Sony, Michelle had not played a whole lot of football games at the beginning of the year. You know, it was getting into shape, and then was kind of in and out of the lineup for few weeks. The run game has certainly evolved. You know at that point. I think people were like, oh, Josh Gordon might become a big part of this team that never really happened. And now he's gone think grunk and Tom Brady maybe a little healthier than they were at certain points around the mid point of the season and into the end of the season. I guess I'm I'm I'm sort of an inclined to go with them. They're they're so healthy right now. The by you know, came obviously had a great time for them and their shaped Shifter's by design. I guess I go cat know. I'm not a big believer in in. It's kind of a lazy way of explaining success or even failure team turn it on and off in maybe certain players can do that. But collectively, I think it's really tough to do that at this level. However, I do believe there is something to be said for maybe leave it a little something in the in the creative tank playing a bit of a benign brand of football, not divulging too much. You think that the pats straddle that line on purpose where they knew that they could win this division pretty much just by showing up and now it's money time, and they put up a little bit. Do you think that they can actually do that? I do think they do you don't we saw with the the office of line gimmick thing. They were the ravens a few years ago that we befuddled. You know, all the tackle eligible and all that stuff. Eventually they changed the rule. I think they certainly held trick plays back in the past and saved them for this time of year. I think they've saved special teams quirks for when you know emergency break glass now, we're empty the tank. I absolutely do. I'm sure there's things that they put on tape against the chiefs not a lot. But a player too. Just because there's, you know, checking mcdaniels and Florez are thinking, okay. They're gonna see that a line at you know, what I mean it's gonna look like this play that from week six, but we got a completely different. You know, we're doing something completely different out of it. I do think there's no substitute for mine. Power in this league safe. They've got no shortage of it. They're smart player. Smart coaches, continuity. They demand a lot out of these players and they deliver. And I'm sure there's some things they probably haven't worked on a whole lot since the summer that. Showed up in practice a bunch this week. Now, whether it manifested softened the game or not you never quite know because this is game situations, whatever. But I I I don't think that's giving them too much credit. I think there's something to that. Like, I'm looking at quarter. I'll Patterson, I know they're all healthy ostrich. Now, he only touched the ball twice in that first game. He touches the ball more than twice this. Yeah. You're probably right speaking, you talk about coaches there in preparation, and this is a little bit of an aside from the championship game. What what kind of head coach? You think Brian floors is going to be because it seems like that is maybe a done deal down in Miami. There's some some stories coming out about him. He grew up here in Brooklyn, probably of in the Boston College, and he's got this intensity about him. And it's like he was groomed for this job. What's he going to be like as a head coach? I I think it's kind of like quarterbacks man, I think you have to look at the totality and everything around around him. And you know, it takes players takes ownership, you know, everybody being lockstep and they've had issues with that in Miami really forever. But I think you know, you look at the GM there, Chris Greer and him and his dad have strong ties to that patriots organization going going way back before bowel. Check was there. And I think that they will be of one mind and how they approach some things they're probably in ways that they. Haven't had that synergy between football operations in the coaching staff in the past. I think Stephen Ross can become a good owner. It hasn't manifested itself yet. But I think with the right people can be proven to be a pretty good NFL odor. But boy, they got to figure out the coin panel. Find a quarterback. We're never going to know how good of a coach is because it's you know, what I mean, it's not gonna be best coaching. Obviously if you're not getting at least above average play out of your quarterback. You don't you don't have a chance, and they're going to have to figure that out whether it's teddy Bridgewater and somebody in the draft. Whether it's an older guy like flacco or foles is a band aid for a year or two to get to maybe a deeper draft class. I assuming those are going to be some of the immediate conversations between, you know, the the GM of the coach down there once Flora's finished coaching. But I think his demeanor. There's a lot about him that I think portends good things but nobody's one in Miami. Emme? Nobody's one there. So it's hard for me to be like. Oh, yeah. That's going to be a slam dunk. That's fair. Jason lockenfora, of course, NFL insider CBS sports chase with CRT and Tierney. Yeah. You get all go all the way back to Don. Shula. Miami. I mean didn't win there. Yeah. Conversation with the greatest coach ever. You're right. A guy who we do consider a great coach. But still has to take step is Andy Reid. How how important is this game home gaming probably clear debt, you know, that whatever that monkey off his back in the in the divisional round, but home game weather kind of suits exactly what you would want for a home team, ugly, nasty, etc. How important is this for Andy Reid? You know? He's going anywhere for awhile. He's got a really good young GM their breviary to who he works. Very well with he managed not to lose anybody from his staff, Dave tobe, his esteem special teams coach interviewed for head coaching jobs in the past. You know, Eric the enemy impressed a lot of people didn't get a job just yet. And he's got my cafes quarterbacks. Coach who I bet you as a head coach this time of year from now keeping audio. So he's got all that brainpower their Mahomes is a pop even if they lose deported free agency, you know, their their position pretty well. I actually think it's less probably that Talita emotionally taxing for him to go back a year ago when they're hosting a very mediocre titans team that's sort of backed in and they're up twenty two to ten or whatever it was. I think it was twenty two to ten and the kid misses a field goal and Marietta comes back down. And you know what? I mean, we all know what happened there at that point. They knew that Patrick Mahomes was really good like they loved them. They were obviously they were about to make that trade. But like, I don't think anybody thought he'd be fifty touched. Downs. Good as a rookie. So I think you know, he's not in a bad spot. I think last year was probably with knowing that this is it for our Smith, and knowing you're about to take this really big gamble at blow out a guy was an MVP candidate for a basically a rookie. I think you know, I think he's all right. He's gonna have other bytes at this. Apple I think with this quarterback in a in a way, though, does that make it worse because the more bites that he gets if he doesn't actually get to the core. Yeah. Right. Yeah. You can look at it that way. Hey. Couple of news items here to Jason lockenfora, of course, camp shoulder. We know he's banged up. Doug, it from new ownership here saying that I'm not going crazy with that one. You know, I they got I think that's a young owner, you know, answering some very hypothetical questions and probably going down a road that year or two from now, you know, what I mean when he's dealing with the medium, or or at least used to it more. He probably doesn't even entertain. No. So I think when you go back and watch the full context of everything it's basically him addressing a scenario where well, let's say Cam still can't like no one right now six games not going to be able to throw. You know what I mean? And cutting into the summer he's sort of adjust. I let's say he can't then what do you do? And he's like, well, I don't hardly get a quarterback here. So you know mean if we have to put them on ice, we'll put them on ice. But like, they're they don't have medical to nap totally right now that are screen on. It'd be screaming like emergency. You know, this is, you know, dire his seasons in jeopardy shoulder. So we'll have to see how it plays out. But I think you know, the next time that comes around. I don't I don't know that he's willing to go down that road. He's got a list of there's something to be said for forgetting reps not just under center as a quarterback get reps in terms of the microphone. I hear ya. You gotta learn how to take those in an answer. More of a nine ways, you know, creating. Starts freaking out. He has a good, dude. And you know, what I mean, you you wanna be as forthcoming to a point. But when you start dealing in hypotheticals like that that involve medicals, and then people read on people just see those quotes. It's like all my guy. Yeah. Let's lavar would say stay in your lane. Lane. You mentioned flacco before. And I read some good articles this week on CBS sports dot com about percent. And it's funny. We really haven't frost his name into the the pack of quarterbacks the falls in the flack goes and and the tattoo hills who could be available as a one or two year band aid, stopgap, whatever I like them take a lot of strong strong action on the market. How do you think he's viewed? I think that Chris Bowden is being smart how he's handled. This. The giants are the. The colts general manager. He he that kid. You know, he's played quarterback in this league one games. And even that season, you know, the the tire season played with the team stunk he acquired himself fairly. Well, there's a lot of smart football people who believe that. He's a starting quarterback in the NFL. So I would look I would be more inside to roll the dice on him. Then then even a false just because of the potential upside I would rather give up for me, especially if I'm a team. Well, the team is gonna get falls is probably Jacksonville. They're not who they think they are. But if they were who I think they were for younger quarterback like brusett and and starting the reboot now. Yeah, I think hold out for I don't think he'll take less than a high to for him. I know talking Ballard about percents last summer at training camp. He wasn't gonna take less than a one for men. We'll see how these kids look at pro day the combine and everything else, but he and Bridgewater or the only sort of young options out there already established in the league who are attractive to people. So yeah, I think I think they're in a pretty good spot with trade, and he could also be dealt in season that he's also the perfect guy who if heaven forbid, there's a, you know, year the eagles whilst you know, Sam what the Bradford when you know, what I mean, we're going to deal Bradford because teddy went down. I mean, if something like that happens in OT as or or or contending team loses their quarterback in late summer. You're going to get value for them. Yeah. Jason Williams about a minute here. But Scotland is just been reported as his parting ways with the Dallas Cowboys anything bigger to this that we should know about. I mean, this is somebody who really was he was coaching life support a couple of different times in the regular season..

"Awards and asking Zach Lowe of TV show every Saturday now on ESPN two and they were talking about the Lakers and remember one Luke was on the hot seat with all that stuff and the admonishment with Magic Johnson. Well, apparently that hasn't gone away. The other question in LA now to is. What is Magic Johnson do with Luke Walton if this team keeps winning if they get into the playoffs with a pretty good seed. How's he going to listen, we know since LeBron since Magic's taken over they they had been hoping to get their own coach. And at some point we saw play out in the meeting. They had early in the year where magic really went after Luke, and I'm gonna games was on. How many how many games for the tongue lash like eight? I mean what's going on? Yeah. And so if they're gonna go to genie bus and be able to sell her on replacing Luke Wallin it better be trying to do it off at season when they missed the playoffs or off along losing streak because she has been fiercely loyal to Luke wall. And that was. Her her higher, and every way, and you know, so far, so far, she has kept management awesome. They've allowed magic rob blanket change everything there. They haven't been able to touch the wall. Magic's view of a coach remains Pat Riley, the you know, the fiery old school. That's his view Luke Walton doesn't fit the mold of what he sees in a head coach. So I said last week when Mona was in here. I said this Luke Walton stuff, he's not he's not magic sky. This stuff is not going away. People were yelling at me telling me, I'm a hater. I don't know what I'm talking about. And what I would say is even a right? I know what I'm talking about noticed. So that's w that I'm gonna take. It's it's totally unfair. I was gonna say there's there's the being right about what might happen. What should happen? It sounds like you're saying this might have. Footling befuddling and for the reasons they just described how he possibly justify it. Assuming that they keep winning and play magic. Listen you. I'm laughing at that. What validated? It was that past went up in the congregation and drops at gospel on everybody. And when whoa drop the gospel was like, oh, you know, what I can actually see that happening. Now, he gave everybody vision of what supposed to look like, right? It makes sense though. It makes sense that that was a Jeanie Buss higher was not a Magic Johnson higher the twenty team Lakers though, like everything that they wanted before the season and the laid best laid plans, it's all come crashing down. Been government. Yeah. And this is another perfect example of it. I think and Byron Scott was in here the day that that stuff happened with Luke. And I asked him look, that's your boy. And he's like, yeah. Man. I believe all of it. That's just who he is. That's that's how he does business. So like he wanted done a certain way, and he wants it done fast, and that two and five start was not ideal, but I- woman Ramon, and I were talking about was that he is not out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination. And it's clear that wage believes that that's the case happens if they finished with four seat. I think Luke's Luke's job is going to be decided on how far they go into the playoffs. Like how deep they go in year one. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I think that he needs to get at least to the conference finals and your one. Yeah. And honestly, why don't they get wiped out of the warriors four games? I could see being like a that's just a guess. Okay. No. Don't write it up aggravates. That's just me speculating. Yeah. All right. So here's a nail that I had to take clearly after watching the Green Bay Packers here over the last several weeks my pick that the Green Bay Packers will be representing the NFC in the Super Bowl not looking. So good. Looking so good. You are air Rogers BFF, what the hell is going on. There. Just story about him guys. It's the culmination of a lot of bad drafts. Honestly and Rodgers playing worse than usual this year. He's not a bad quarterback. He still playing it an above average level in my opinion..

"Ten twenty k John McIntyre for rod Pratt with political millennials Bethany Helmand Brendan's helps this from the New York Times. President Trump told the White House counsel in the spring that he wanted to order the Justice department to prosecute to political adversaries, Hillary Clinton and former FBI director James Comey, according to people familiar with conversation. The lawyer this is Trump's White House lawyer not his personal lawyer. But the guy who's just supposed to advise him on the law. Donald Mcgann rebuffed, the president saying the had no thority to order prosecution. Mr. Mcgann said that while he could request an investigation that too could prompt accusations of abuse of power to underscore, the point Mr. Mcgann had White House lawyers write a memo for Mr. Trump warning that if he asked law enforcement to investigate his rivals. He could face a range of consequences, including possible impeachment in other words in layman's terms, you can't just say, hey, attorney general go investigate these two people don't like them. And what what among the billions of things that befuddled me is he doesn't seem to understand that you can't lock her up or prosecute somebody. If there's no evidence of a crime. No, he thinks he's the president. He can just say it in happy. It's not just right wing nutbag talking points. Do not actual criminality make if they did Hillary Clinton would be doing fifty years for horrible Email long Nancy Pelosi, and every other democrat Barack Obama. They had all be president. So we know we know the president views himself as the sole arbiter of truth that was actually an article that was earlier this week where somebody basically positioned out in latest statements in his comments outwear. Nothing is true. Unless he says it so if somebody said that Mr President we heard that you were very upset this week because of the midterms he goes who said that I never said that means if I never said that it's not right? So he views himself as a so arbiter of truth. So he sees that these people are doing illegal things in and the people you see online on social media and the people who call in. They believe the uranium one is an illegal thing. The Email thing the Benghazi that all these things that have been investigated in litigated to death still need data under candidate nothing ever happened. Because there was no evidence of any wrongdoing. Zippo zero my last name, zilch. There's nothing there. There's like the Benghazi investigation is my favorite one. I absolutely love it. If somebody would bring it up an argument with me because the very simple fact is it was the longest most expensive investigation in the history of the US congress longer and more expensive than Pearl Harbor the nine eleven commission. The Warren commission into the JFK assassination more expensive longer than all of those. They absolved her of all wrongdoing. Even after all the money all the time in eleven hours of in-person testimony. They Republicans absolves her of all wrongdoing yet, it still gets brought up or the uranium thing or the Email anytime you say Hillary in Benghazi. That's all anybody has to say the only people that bring up Hillary Clinton are Republican. Yes, we don't care. There's three died in the wool partisan liberal hacks here right now, we do not care about Hillary Clinton. We never bring her up. The only people who do are Republicans. That's it.

You are wearing a Red Sox t-shirt. How do you not go to the game? Waiting for clinching game, which is probably going to be tomorrow or Sunday. The World Series stood by the way for all. These people think the dodgers are out of it. They're not out of it. I mean, they did what you're supposed to do is lose the two games on the road. The Red Sox had the home field advantage, and they played like it. The dodgers looked like they'd never been in Fenway before. Which is the most befuddling thing of it. My issue isn't will the dodgers become a different team at home. They will become a different team at home. My question is can they get out of their own way? Yes. Puig knows the the appropriate depth. I know in right field Dodger Stadium why he's playing three hundred forty feet deep. I'm exaggerating right field of Fenway is beyond me. But but it's gotta be more than just the dodgers waking up at home. I have all the faith in Walker. Bueller? Despite the fact, he just learned how to shave I have all the faith in him. But I don't have faith necessarily in Dave Roberts. I'm sorry. He got him here. But some of those decisions in Boston. Confuse me joining us how to talk to World Series game three from FOX. And they'll be network is J. P morosi joins us now on the line of the richeisenshow. Am I going over the top a little bit too much on Dave Roberts being too harsh? Well, Andrew good afternoon. I I would say this that Dave Roberts is managing the team. Now about the same way that he is managed them all season long. And of course, running up against very very good competition right now as part of the reason why team is down to and really I had less of an issue with the game one decision on the right left matchup and bringing in Alex would there than most did, however, I'll make this big picture point that event to the World Series. And Cody Bellinger was your analyst MVP the young players that big part of your team suture, and he does not start either the first two games the World Series. I realized that that they were opposing left-handed pitcher both those game. Games. But I think Andrew to some extent. I I agree with you in the in the way that you've got to put your best team on the field within reason. And I think sometimes when you do things a little bit to buy the book, I think it may be stifles your team a little bit. And I I think the the ballpark atmosphere Fenway park, the weather a lot of those other factors working against the dodgers there. But it did not seem to me that it was a a free flowing team that the at bats were all that relaxing in rhythm in the same way that Boston's were and I I have to think that that some more involvement from your best player in the previous series by the health. All right. I'm not suggesting that he doesn't have Dave Roberts doesn't have autonomy here and the right to make his own decisions. But these lineup decisions are they organizational decisions. Or is he making them alone wall sitting on the plane flying to Boston? I think organizational is probably the right word to use their Andrew. I think Think that that it's. it's to me. This is the way that that modern organizations view the manager's role. I I grew up in the game. I think back my first years covering baseball almost a decade and a half ago, and the the managers seem to be these all knowing people with decades of experience in the game which Dave Roberts as well. But that they they were left to their own devices in terms of lineup in their game decisions..
