There's a lot of offered a season forty one thirty earlier and at forty one hours in which which is longer than original the eighth straight through or resolve on vesey street through and those are both pretty long games. Really give that into perspective. Her fungus does three games. Not they are. Because you've gotta again because again they're saying straight through you're going to naturally games and in yonkers they're gonna shit so it's gonna task but that's not bad.

I think skyros nearing four hundred now and then morals doubling the threes. Probably not as much as much as i like to say more indus higher. I wish but that's about it. That's why my highest game is three hours. That's of course not going into stuff where you can just like infinitely play it like syms. I probably have a thousand hours in but that's a little harder to gauge. Because it really never ends at all. You can't actually do everything more with it.

Houston Rockets, Washington DC's Wizards agree to Westbrook-Wall trade
"Westbrook. John Wall trade. How much did that affect any kind of action with that MBA trade happening today? Not much yet. I'm sure Will Seymour in the coming days. You have a wind total for the Houston Rockets sitting at about 36. The Wizards is sitting at 29. I mean, how much are things gonna change? It's mostly because of walls, health And whether what type of player he's going to be when he gets back on the court because we haven't seen him in a while. We do know what you're getting in Russell Westbrook. So I'd say, maybe just maybe the wind total and all the futures will adjust positively for Washington and a little bit negatively for Houston. But then again, Houston hard and Westbrook. Maybe they weren't really getting along. So who knows how much of a negative that could really be? I would say with Houston, we're waiting for the other shoe to drop right. It all comes down to whether or not James Harden's gonna be traded. So I'm looking at all things under when it comes to Houston. The owners talking about slashing payroll, They traded Westbrook. They fired the GM. They fired the coach hard, maybe traded. I think it might be a real rebuild coming in Houston, Have you looking at the under on the wind total there.

Rachel Nichols On NBAs Return To Action Outside The Bubble
"We've been getting clarity about what this season is actually going to look like so it scheduled to start december. Twenty second and the finals are expected to end sometime in july. But i wanna talk to you about everything may or may not happen. I guess between those two dates because this is not going to be a bubble situation. Now what are the broad strokes of what the league is planning for this season. I think one of the most interesting things that's going to happen to the nba. Is that the situation in the country. Should hopefully all fingers crossed significantly change. Through the course of the season rachel nichols is the host of espn's nba show the jump. She's been reporting on the nba for nearly two decades. It could be. Maybe i'm being optimistic that there's enough people in this country vaccinated that the numbers of of infection or lower in deaths are low and that we have a full city to city. Travel fans in the stands. Nba finals when right now a majority i think of nba teams or at least a big chunk of them can't even have a single fan in the building. And i think that the nba is smart and taking sort of month by month approach. They're not even planning to release the full season schedule at the beginning of the season. Has it ever happened before. I don't think so in any sport like it's it's it's all a little bit up as they go along because that would imply that they didn't know what they were doing. And i think the nba has shown they really do know what they're doing as much as anyone can right now but we don't know so much about what's going to happen in this country that i they can look at the first chunk and just say okay. Here's what we're gonna do at the beginning and we'll see after that give you the basics. Though in terms of how many games we're playing year where they're going to happen. What are the fundamentals of what the first half of this. Season's gonna look like right. Well they're trying for seventy two games in quote home markets in home arenas. They've talked about trying to do the puzzle pieces of the schedule in a way. Where teams if they're you know a lotta times. Nba teams love to tell you how bad the league offices screw them on their travels. Because you know if you're portland and all of a sudden you're going to miami and then you're going to utah and then you're going to new york and then you're going to denver and then you're going back to brooklyn you're like i was just in new york. They're going to try to not have that happen. The thing that they have on their side this time is that there's really not concerts at arenas to schedule around the ideas that if you travel to a certain region of the country baseball style you can maybe play all the teams all of which is great and they've told teams when you do travel. Obviously they take their own plane they will get to a hotel but a hotel with other people in it so they've given them rules and there is this you know. Nearly one hundred fifty page rulebook. They dumped on the teams and thanksgiving weekend and one of them was. Hey when you're at the t. motel. Your guys can't use the gym and the only way they can use the gym if the hotel agrees to clear every other hotel guests out of the gym keep it closed for the entire duration of the stay. Have it cleaned between each player when they use the hotel gym. I mean there's just that's the level of Of sort of detail. They've gone into which is great but the bottom line is you're playing a sport on like football. Unlike baseball that has played indoors. Where the guys are breathing and sweating wreck on each other with no helmets or equipment in between so the league. That didn't have any player. Positive cova tests through this whole last. Six months of on-court play is going to have them this season pretty much guaranteed. So you're in the bubble.

"It that way. I think they said that to would had what six weeks practice and the regular season they treated that as maybe his preseason and once they felt like he was ready enough to play. They felt like it was time and they wanted to see him in action. So i think it was a rough because fits was playing really well and they didn't look at it that way. They already had a plan. That hey tool that gonna play. Regardless in the twenty twenty season it just was a matter when cameron wolfe our guest he writes for. Espn dot com. You see on espn. He is the dolphins beat reporter. You wrote also this week. And i think it's dead on the dolphins defense for all the talk about to And whether or not he's ready and who is throw into the dolphins defense. What's going to win this year for them and get them to the playoffs and they're kind of overlooked on a number of different levels. Let's start with their secondary their quarterbacks make a lot of money but they're very very good. Avian howard and byron jones. These guys are kind of the same body type and their votes mother corners. This is going to be a very difficult game for brandon allen to throw in in and it would be that way with joe burrow. These guys are really good. Aren't they know this. This defense in the secondary in particular you mentioned is and then one of the nfl. I think the stat that really stands out to me is last year the year. Everybody was saying they were tanking or laughing. Stock to league. They were thirty second in scoring defense and this year there second scoring defense so they've jumped thirty spot and scoring defense in just one year. And that kinda shows the turnaround. They've had spent a lot of money. Free agency A lot of picks in the draft to really build this team up and maybe the biggest acquisition was getting exhibiting out. Howard back healthy. He missed eleven games last year with a knee injury and this year. He's leaving the nfl in your section. So they've been able to play a lot more aggressive. Defense played a lot of men than and and they really have confused. Defenses with their scheme and So i think it's a tribute to bryant floors and his defense.
Bill Barnwell on Bears versus Packers
"Watching bears and packers and aaron rodgers to the surprise of literally. Nobody just decimated the bears and mitch trubisky forty one to twenty five so i wanna turn this conversation to the horse race. The mvp conversation because there really hasn't been a wire-to-wire front runner. This whole time. We've seen the pendulum kind of swing. Russell wilson kyle murray. Was there for hot. Second mahomes obviously and aaron rodgers who remains squarely in the thick of it after an off season full of drama around jordan. Love being drafted at quarterback and yet there is aaron rodgers just dominating again robert tanya and guys at touchdown to robert tanya made aaron rodgers the eleventh. Qb in nfl. History to pass for more than fifty thousand yards the second-fastest so where are you on. The whole rogers ram vp. Okay so i. I'm inclined to pick. Patrick mahomes by choice right now. And i think the only thing separating those two with russell wilson third is that one disastrous game. Rogers had against the bucks earlier this season. And i think if you're going to make a case for rodgers. Mvp to start with the idea that he's doing more with less and mahomes has to work with. And wilson has to work with the homes of course has a dominant group of receivers with Terry travis kelsey leading the way. Russell wilson has decay metcalf and tyler lockett and we talked about this before the season. Rogers has devante adams and a lot of question marks. Rogers has injuries and opt-outs affecting his receiving corps from week to week and on top of that. The guys who are extra showing up are posting the second highest drop rate for any quarterback in the league and yet when you put rodgers back there even against a very good defense which the bears are. There are stretches this year. He looks absolutely untouchable. The bears had no answers for him on sunday night. So the other

A Rare Conversation with Former Philadelphia 76ers GM Sam Hinkie
"Sam hinkie. Welcome to espn daily pablo sam. Let's be very clear about what's happening here. You don't really talk to people in this way very often. You have reminded me for a long time as a mixture of like all the complimentary to it. I hope you receive. But there's like a jd salinger aspect. Maybe greta garbo is more your speed wizard of oz kind of thing. So why are you breaking. Said silence with me. Right now is you're you're lifting expectations. I don't know if i keep up. But i'll i'll do my best. I do talk every day. Adjust don't talk to you and your colleagues at espn on television. Every day I it's not every a chance to guess up on your friends. Who just had something awesome happened in their life. That happens to coalesce with a bunch of my life. So that's why yeah. Well let's get into it. Because daryl morey your former boss colleague. Your friend just got hired this week. Two year old job. Which is president of basketball operations at the philadelphia seventy sixers. What was your reaction to that news. Stoked i'm stoked. Now it's a i think is great news. I think it's very much he's a. He's a good higher. He's a great har. It's a really big move the franchise for carolina belt with a bunch of people that i care about and i just think it portends really great things for the future for the sixers Remains to this day remains meaningful to me and so Stoudt first of all. Did you know before i knew which is to say. Did you know before woche tweeted about this on wednesday afternoon all paulo the nature of compounding trust with people over long periods of times. Being careful about what you say. Well you know The important to me a maybe. This sounds facetious. But it's me it's important to me to earn. Trust the bill and a lot of ways. One as you do that as a be careful about what you know when you knew anything. So i can sense the drawbridge raising a little bit slower dzhumber where one minute end to to our conversation and here you go with like zingers zingers. I'm trying to scale the castle. And and let me let me let me try something else because i understand that completing. That's these days. Tell me about private conversations. You wouldn't mind sharing your social security information as well. That'd be very helpful. But i want to get into what you mentioned earlier. Which is that. This coalesce is around your story as well in a way that makes you very timely person to talk to on the record at a sports publication like espn daily. I mean the metaphors. Sam for what has happened this week that i have set that i've landed on that. I'm settling a pod. Is that the philadelphia seventy sixers. I mean they kind of just hired their ex wife's older sister so in this metaphor. I think you know that you are the x in this case and i wanna ask you first about that. I mean this must have felt in some way as much as you're excited about this and stoked by the way godsend for sixers fans everywhere like i would argue that. It must be kind of weird. Also eight hasn't begun yet so we'll see a suspect they'll be on occasion. It'll be a little a little strange but mostly it will be great. I that's a. You're only a mind like yours would come up with a with an analogy like that. It's i think of it as a obviously a good thing for daryl and something He wanted to do which is awesome. And i think a good thing for the sixers and you know. God bless him for getting to that answer. I think it's i think it's a great answer. And regardless of the oddity of it make my simple. I've been sixer fan and rockets fan more than the other teams for a while. I can continue to school. Yeah i want to know how much you've actually gotten to watch year-old team your old franchise. Have you gone to see the philadelphia. Seventy sixers play basketball over these last four years since he resigned from the team. I watch a bunch of for sure. I don't watch every game. And i surely don't watch all of every game. I live on the west coast and so Post dinner a lot of nights. You can catch the fourth quarter. I'm as guilty as some fans that game close Turn on the game's not close in. It's not that interesting with a minute ago and you you know. Live to watch another day. but yeah i i watch a bunch and i i keep track a lot because i care about how they do and i care about a bunch of the people there i care about you know. What's the people on the floor. So i'm i'm a fan from far.

You know, it felt like every 15 minutes. We're breaking in on SportsCenter. With updates about is Nick Saban's test positive. Is it negative? I mean, we kept going and going with it. And now that you find out this man actually does have symptoms. I know. He said that he has a runny nose, and it's nothing like super catastrophic and he was a little horse in his press conference, but He is one of many college football coaches, um, including several in the S E. C. N o Dan Mullen had it who now have the Corona virus and are now dealing with this And you know, my thought is This couldn't have happened at least to any other program that has more reinforcements in place to prevent against things going awry before a massive Massive game Cozy, you know is doing everything in the right was sure. Absolutely. I mean, that's once again. We can't villainize there vilify people forget in the prone A virus at this point next day, been said it that panties like I go home. I go to work. I don't know how I got it and You know that program. Um, given who's next in line and who's going to be taking over with, you know Nick Saban watching the all 22 during the game. I know that he can't have some magical headset to put all of the conspiracy theories out there. He's not watching the game and calling the place. It's not like Hugh Freeze in the hospital bed calling place of Liberty. It's that level three wishes probably could. He will have a really at halftime. I mean, he will be on the phone with coaches trust me, no doubt at halftime, but Your point. He did speak today after being diagnosed positive with the coronavirus. Here's a head coach of the number one team in the country next saving on the just on a couple days right now the IV but a couple days before the Iron Bowl, his head coach of Alabama Was informed this morning that I had tested positive.

"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty

Real Madrid Cruise Past Inter
"Allie moreno joins us alley weeping harsh real madrid and rightly so but they pulled a performance. I when it was needed today yet. They did and even before the red card happened. I thought that the we're far better than inter Deploying to where you just saw full control through the with grows and moderate and then look at rutgers helping defensively other guards serving us to link and even have to sometimes drifting inside and you just saw team that was fooling controlled through the middle area of the field in doing that Enter just been having sort of said. They didn't have any sort of connection to martinez or luke outcome for a long time in the first half even at breda to read you read build the momentum building momentum really caring the procession really carrying the pace of the game and enter was merely reacting to that. I thought it was a flat performance when you need a little bit of life and energy and urgency for inter he just. Wasn't there a little bit of life early on in the second half and that was about it appear team and they were the two point here. And what was wrong with said today vega question. Obviously it was not enough to put real madrid in into any danger and The control the game from the beginning on after the the red card of and Yacht it they look the whole game like the the certain winner. It comes in a very delicate moment right now for for my team because obviously in a championship in almost area league. they're fighting railway through. They haven't taken on a rhythm yet and the expectations are very very high in milano. The people the adobe they expect they expect a championship winning the title ahead of uber. Because that's filed too long since it happened the last time and they were expecting big things from the champions league so now it looks really kind of ugly if they can go through in the champions league and and create only more uncertainty around around into milan right now
The Truth to Shining Brightly & Letting the World See You by Shirley of Daring Living
"The truth to shining brightly and letting the world see you by shirley of daring living dot com. Today i wanna share one truth shining brightly and presenting yourself in this world how it all started and some background into my past. Last weekend i attended a series of events held by mpg. Tgi where house honor to connect with a group of exchange university students from taiwan is a program that was involved in during my graduate years so group that holds very dear to my heart was again at the event. I saw my old self. Who as if. I was back there in the organizing team with them just a few years ago struggling and carrying along with me the overwhelming burden of school. The pressure of meeting up to appearance appearances. Society's expectations the constant struggle to finding my passions and most importantly the desperation to reaching that never ending benchmark of set forward for myself. I was never good enough this time. However i was the bystander with much more communist and openness than before i felt the exchange tunes hopes dreams aspirations for the future also saw their personal struggles of finding themselves searching for a place to belong in this world this experience stirred up a gentle reminder. I think we all deserve to hear about presenting ourselves to this world while also staying true to who we are. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine in this society and organizations today that a certain type of people that everyone looks up to in order to be successful even during my years in business school in every class we were encouraged. Step onto the stage and take the spotlight own. The room with confidence communicate inspire people with our ideas see. We were taught to be leaders. Not just any type of leader. The extroverted charismatic leaders that were highly valued. Sometimes the idea you need to communicate is so important they have to take the stage to express them to the right people but being the center of the attention is not where everyone thrives for me. It is not where i thrive is not where i can be myself. You do not have to be in the spotlight to shine. If you not feel comfortable leading group or being in the center of attention it is okay was important is you must understand yourself and find the best method and environment that suits you where you can effectively and truthfully express yourself and what you have to offer. I used a model these attention loving sociable charismatic extroverts and thought i had to be them in order to be successful in life but the truth is everyone of our personalities is so different. According to the myers briggs personality test we generally group are personality traits in this world into sixteen different types out of these sixteen half of them are extroverts. Matt of the eight only two of them are considered to have the natural charismatic trait mehan. Tj and ian fj. So what does that mean for. Those of us who do not belong as an emt j. or espn fj. While it means that you simply cannot pretend to be someone you are not and he should not have to be even if you are one of the two leadership type personalities. How much do you understand yourself. Be aware of your strengths weaknesses. Any environment that you are most comfortable in but of course these personality tests are just a start because they are just categories and still don't fully define you dive into your past experiences if think about what you enjoy doing try different hobbies follow your curiosities engage and take part in different groups and communities find out the best way for you to express yourself to the world. Perhaps it is through art through inventions through the internet to writing or through verbal communication. What kind of environment. You thrive in his through one on one conversations or in small groups or in a big stadium with hundreds of people to work better by yourself or a team. We are all different. Don't ever compare yourself in your situation with someone else's focus on yourself work on yourself. That's the only way for you to grow what the world needs while we really need are all types of people portraying different strengths in this world. Q. imagine what it would be like if the world is filled only with allowed charismatic extroverts and actually be pretty scary place to be and nothing would ever get done. We do need charismatic. People in this world to inspiring gather people together a will. We need also are quieter introverted. People and leaders who prefer to stay behind the scenes and are not afraid to let others take the spotlight. Moee need our brave people who choose to believe and follow crazy leaders with visions. What we need are committed people who follow through with what they say and can put words into actions when we need are open minded people who can really lean in and listen first before speaking while we need are kind people who have compassion and can show empathy in this cruel world. What we really need are people who have strong self awareness who are honest and truthful to themselves so that men return they can be their best selves to better serve this world quote. Ask yourself when makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive

They can run it. They can cover Peters to leave. The Rams are stack. This is the year, but soon. Are they to download? I'm wearing this shirt. Oh, okay. Okay. Oh, do you? Oh no, no shirt or college football. Don't make me Diego Maradona. Good. I was close to picking the rain as a maverick. Sean McVeigh was on my radio show today by didn't wake congrats on the new show. Donald show. Donald show three thirty to seven on ESPN LA afternoon, but I'm going with that. He is. Listen to what I said a few minutes ago I sent he is on a mission. He is going to carry that lack luster roster because he's so great. He is going to carry them to the promised land. That's how great he is. You got the wrong l. a. team and you guys have the wrong conference. NFC love. Whoa, I have an LA team playing the Super Bowl. You do? Yeah, it's not the Rams. They ain't. Just losing to the saints of this saints. That's a bread, same gonna, win on cures, white. Let's make this quick. Look last year. Pay miracle actually got them eliminated from the playoffs. It's true. They would've gone to Philly. They might win that will not gain on go to the Super Bowl to play against the past true. I think this defense is better than last year. The weapons that drew Brees has now he didn't have it for a long time and he'd also have to throw the football fifty times per game. He'll only has to do that like thirty to thirty five because they have a running game. This is going to be very balanced. Sean Payton drew Brees are going back to the Super Bowl to play the chargers and they're winning the trophy, but he can't win the regular season MVP. Well, That's that's good. good because jewelries beating his old team, that's a story line. Did you ever ran. Rivers apps chargers. Potential. See what Tom Brady has to say about that. We'll see he's bringing his good l. a. voodoo who that is Ryan. Good to see. Thanks for dressing, buddy, see, man, Ryan.

"He's gonna have either for a long time. He's a special talent. I'm gonna go with Patrick Mahomes. Andy Reid is ruled. My home, Andy Reid. It's gonna be fun that he can work with any quarterback. And when you give him a young guy, we've seen what he's done before. Remember Donovan McNab very quickly was able to become one of the better quarterbacks in the league. I think the home of the much bigger stronger version of Donovan with a look at your arm. I think they've got a ton of weapons on offense. I think that's key. Horner's stink sent me. That's gonna. That means they're easy office going to be out there a lot. So they Mahomes going to put a big numbers. I love the combination of Mahomes and read. He's going to have Howard show. I'm gonna throw in somebody really quick because there were three wide receivers taken in the top ten of last year's draft did nothing Corey Davis of the titans. Mike Williams of the chargers. John listening Bengals somebody's gonna do something out of that trio. If not all three, they'll have some good preseason. I like Ross. Most likely to disappoint, we're going to start with you Georgia, not you, you're never disappointed, right? Some of my wife says, oh. The Oakland Raiders are going to disappoint. I think there are five or six win team this season. I even thought that before the little MAC trade, I think the trade was an atrocity. You trade the best player on defense, arguing football league. You get you're getting two first round picks you had to give up a second, and you're basically gonna use those two first round picks to chase the next Khalil Mack. Yeah, it's just stupid. Hey, they got fullbacks, right. They got a lot of fullbacks. I'm gonna go with the eagles look, waiters employed rife, Ochoa t the eagles book. If Carson Wentz it's going to take his time to come back, which I think it's a good idea. You don't have to Russia this season. My not be at spectacular, has two thousand seventeen for the eagles. The current world champions, I think they will be the biggest disappointment. They might make the playoffs. I don't think there's no way you're going back to the Super Bowl. I think they'll still make the playoffs. Because even though I thought all those teams, we're going to go over when we did our over owned your segment. But there's been some is been some injuries, and that's kind of changed my opinion of division. I think I think you're right about that fellas by far the biggest disappointment. Again, this season, again, Dallas Cowboys. Why? If we had L. ING Ingvar. are what else is new. If we hang our head on one thing for the Cowboys, it's been well. They got the best offense of line of football. Anybody could run behind their life. We'll guess what they're hurt. They're sick. They're torn up. They don't have. They don't have a wide receiver they are in shambles. And guess what? If that defense is on the field for low enough, they're going to give a point after point after point in debt Prescott here, no air Rogers. He ain't no drew Brees so Dallas Cowboys. Oh, did I mention Jerry Jones. So after the raiders the Cowboys, the Super Bowl champs, I like your style. We speak truth. They're good. We'll see if it rings true most likely to win the MVP Mao. This is easy, Aaron, Roger, easy or like I like going out on all did. Look back. That's obvious kale. He's got to greats high-density, especially that digit of Gini Graham, his still get some good weapons. The opposite line has to play a little better. They have to protect them a little better than last year. But look at Rogers in terms of talent. He's the best quarterback in the history of the NFL, but he's got to deliver. And I think he will. Those numbers will award in the end. It sounds good. That's spicy. But let me name guy who has yet to be an MVP is thrown for over five thousand yards in NFL. One that brings us we've ever seen to ever do. It drew Brees drew Brees has been a Super Bowl MVP. He's been a pro bowler. He's been every. Other sin under the so yes, but other than being MVP the league and this is the year he's got a young supporting cast. He's got Kamara behind him. He's got a defense that is young and exciting, and this is the year for the saints..

"Is thirty six and all brand slam tournaments. After meeting honest Aisha, seven Stover of Latvia. I believe that happened in straight-sets question who is more important to their sports Serena tiger Ryan. You want to start. Yeah, I'll start. I had to think about this Serena Williams. Probably the best greatest female athlete of all time and we can tape it a step further and say, could be arguably the greatest athlete period of all time. All that set Tiger Woods is a guy who literally puts butts in seats. He's responsible for the. Highest ratings in golf history. So we're talking about somebody individually who's more important to their sports. So No, no. no. So true. I'm saying Tigers golf, I'm gonna with tiger. Look. I also struggled trying to make up my mind. D only win in which I can find something to find a difference between them to is go without tiger still has some good gophers like, look, if you go through Sunday and tune into c- DJ Rory mcilroy produce half. You're gonna watch that. You maybe we're not watch that Email Teddy's without Serena, who are we really watching? Nobody pretty much that's the difference of their impact. So that's why I lean Lord ciders just as light margin. This is how you decide this. The math always wins out here. Okay. And the math says that, yes, there is a drop off when Serena doesn't play an turnament, but it's a much steeper drop for golf when tiger is not involved tournament. So that to me just settles all of this. It doesn't diminish her importance or is it just means that his impact is larger because I think that the reality is this when you're watching tennis tournament, even if you're not interested in the other females, there's still the men's side of your bracket watching show that that's part of the equation, right? Whereas with golf, it's tiger and everybody else that you're watching. Watch it casual pants different, but that's what I'm that's a different, but let's brands but the the numbers are there even for just the women side of the bracket. The drop off is not as steep than it is one Tigers not involved in a test. Those are the facts. Okay. But let's just blows out first of all. I think both sports are in a lot of trouble because both these athletes are reaching probably the end, maybe maybe a few years left for both of them. But the thing is Tiger Woods. Therese just point is struggles to compete with the best gophers in the world. Serena who's been in the game for twenty years. It's still the best at the sports far. And these young tennis players cannot beat her and. To your point, the young gophers are proving to be or getting to Tigers level tennis. You can't say that. So now it is, I think a lot of trouble because when Serena leaves, there's going to be a void these young and on the men's side with federal adult veteran adul- tennis used to be your twenty eight and you're done, right? They're going to their mid thirties and still dominant. That's Natalie alarming Sunday at the masters. If it's mcilroy against lefty, you are watching. Oh no, I'm not. I don't care. Sergio Garcia. America's watching US Open final Saturday. If Serena's not playing nobody better. Those are. I grew up watching tennis. Okay. So they said the same thing when Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert were we're leaving the sport. Oh, no one else is gonna be able to carry the man to, and then you know, Steffi Graf came and then was demographic. There's always someone coming more names in tennis far, more Aston years. That hasn't been anybody that has approached the Serena's. That's because Serena's show great. But we thought the same about ten years ago, someone else will emerge understand they're more brands are more names in tennis than you haven't. Golf is just not the same. I don't agree about, hey, why we're here. Yet we watch Serena and tiger this week and it might do it. All right. Coming up next the two thousand eighteen NFL. Efficient way.

Dave Chapelle was on the Maui wowie. That is true. Yeah. Tell I just wonder if it's a little too underproduced.

You're wondering who's going to be on next. There's there's a lot of things going on in there. I mean, everybody wants to know if I'm not mistaking what are these athletes? Anything?

I think it's called the the hype too. I know he was. Join the fun now. Hey, I want to tweet if LeBron's doing it. I'm doing it and I'm gonna do better. One is I, I would love to say, tweet this or that. Clarify. Video. Bidder. Camino right there. Well, I'll say what Ryan that. I think it's fair to say more hype than he was with the NFL season about the start. You know, this is going to be the touchdown celebration. It's going to be that and and people doing the the false. Yeah, silver not stand still anymore without doing the flaws doing that Dan. So I'm glad you clarified if LeBron's doing it. I'm doing it again.

I'm making money move or a radio producer spot when he comes in their day that you know what that is, that's good choreography.

"Well, the one thing that I understand about Ramsey's he's saying, if I can guard him, he sucks. That's the that mentality of a cornerback. You gotta be cocky. You gotta be Eric. You got to be the baddest man on the planet, but when he keeps hitting headline come on, he's turning into the lavar ball of quarterbacks in the NFL every just twenty out at this point. He sucked. Matt Ryan is garbage. He's garbage. Grump. Kids count, Super Bowl rings on a playoff win over him, and Zan is look if it was that easy to guard that man with a cornerback. Don't you think every team in the league will do it every blueprint we'll say we're all going to be watching Ramsey week in and week out. Honestly, it's the first time. Longtime, you're gonna be like, what did he do right himself. Target on his back that pressure though, but he's not me. He has a boring job on the defense. If he's really as good as he says, nobody throws outside. So maybe he's trying to, you know, make people mad, get a little wild, try to go out him so he can get some intersects I, I'm not sure it's just bringing into though you love when sports nerds love to pull out analytics. There's analytics that Ramsey saying proves that if you really do the math when a cornerback is against grunk, he does not perform as a player he should know better than how are you wanna dive into analytics and you should know what you give us the run game because he's going to take their cornerback and running into the ground.

This is great because I feel I thought Draymond lower Haight LeBron he said, he's the best player in the world and pointed out that he should embrace the title. Listen with Draymond had to say. Ron over the last four years became LeBron James and it wasn't nothing to do with winning. There wasn't under do stats. He found himself. People didn't start to view him as they've you him. Now until he became net force that man to say, I'm here for years. He shot away from Santa. I'm here and where he started to say. I'm here. That's where he became, who is and no one would ever said that until he did it himself. LeBron James embraced the whole on the best in the world. Well, I remember from playing against the Bron witness switch started to happen. He was very unsure of himself named Dr. Trying to. But the one thing about LeBron he questioned the jump shot him hesitate and fourth quarters, and then all the sudden it was this confidence maker miss. He stepped up to take the shot. And I remember in Miami, Dwayne, Wade, kind of pass the torch and said, hey, Brian, you're the best team. You're going to close out these games and he became a headache. He learned how to win in Miami. So by LeBron taken that over and just knowing he is who cares what you say, what you think about it? He's the baddest man on the planet. I love them and talented. That's the thing he knows. He doesn't need to say everyone else's saying for him, so he knows this ready and it's not bragging his true, but still he doesn't need to say it my wrong in this. He's not only broaching. The greatest of all time conversation is crossing over into that Ali status figure figure transcend. I thought of Ali, I am new greatest of all time. Everybody loved that.

Bush bushes like Ali in to that degree, people even more you making elite athletes aren't braggadocious big Hoppy prime time. He's point LeBron James does. It need to brag, but you see it in his presence when he gets on the court when he walks in a room, he just commands a respect that everybody can love and can see. He told you agent like fine, wine. He dropped Hinson, their hints as you guys know. I'm a soccer guy and soccer is king all around the world, but he may be the most important sporting figure today. More than messy. You agree John? No, messy. And then you go LeBron that conversation because of his social active because of everything he does because of who he is, and he's in that great conversation big, is that for ballplayer? Because we know obviously basketball has a ways ago in football as far as catching the real football? Soccer. How big is that? For an American athlete to be known around the world. It's it's an incredible feats because you look at players that Cristiano Renaldo incredible feet. His Bangor in the term conversation. Most people still say, Diego motto, Gonen Pele for the best ever LeBron that best ever conversation because he changed. If you remember in new known as early days, he played with a chip on his shoulder. He had a lot to prove he's being compared the Jordan very arrogant. Now there's a more humble side. He grew the Amish. Here's the answer is the Amish mirror, mature, LeBron again, he let's speak for itself on the court.

I'm not so sure if Sam can show what babies already showed that ownership group, what he's already showed them to get rid of Terry Bridgewater with the defensive pieces they have in that division. I I think think he's. he's invested in this guy and they show some best in whatever shampoo he's using because he's got. The only downfall is that he's not on the sideline with a clipboard, the helmets covering that amazing. We wanna see that orange Papa pompadour. Well, that's the exact reason. I liked this Josh mccown. He has the perfect coach and it's a nother player. It's a backup. Every time. This guy makes a mistake. Everything he has to know something. He can go right to Josh mccown and say, hey, what I do bad on that step, what do I have to do better? And he's gonna Lau knows about those mistakes near about this. One thing they say about about darnold. He's the type of player that doesn't make the same mistake twice and Hercules, you know how valuable it is. Professional athletes do learning is vital, but he will be the jungle quarterbacks in the nineteen fifties. To start a game. He's twenty years old right now. He'll be twenty. One plays older. He plays with a poise guys have seen that media's gonna do eat them alive. But then again, do they show excited because they've been so thirsty for a great quarterback that they will. The fans will give a little leeway. I don't feel the same pressure as Baker Mayfield. Baker has more of a brand the jets. I feel like even if he goes in, he plays Batty throws one touchdown to interceptions. You'll be seeing that highlight of that touchdown, pass it through and saying, hey, he's the future. Here's the big problem. Reincarnation of Mark Sanchez. That's. He was great until the butt fumble. Out to the biggest stars in the NFL have signed some huge contract extensions, a Ron Aaron Rodgers. We'll get richer, thirty, three million dollars a year with the contracting worth ninety. Eight million while Beckham as you know on the five year, the ninety five million with sixty five mil guaranteed drinks around either one of these guys Hercules, which player has the better value here, better valley hundred million times a Ron. No quarterback that is more talented. There's a position, all sports, more difficult. It is Aaron Rodgers now has some toys. Got devante atas got Jimmy Graham, you know who who owed l. Beckham junior has to rely on ally. Right. Look, I've been saying for your skies. No matter. What are you gonna say is probably thought you came up with. He's a A bad bad man. man. Ago, steven. Trevino. Look, you could you could win games without without Beckham junior. You can't win without Aaron Rodgers and the stella's Spillers fellow. Yeah. Old Bill Beckham junior is one of the most talented receivers we have ever seen play the game of football. He's speedy. He shifty, he's athlete. He's got amazing hands. And all that said he's crafty heard Rogers account by himself for eight wins alone far. If Odell could throw the football and go catching himself, I may say, okay, give Give your your shot shot at. at. But right now, I mean, come on, are we kidding cry? Just position alone. Good quarterback. Good wide receiver. I was trying to find the flip side of his argument and be like, how can I? How can I argue the band. There are few elite receivers you think of Odell Beckham junior, Julio Jones and Tonio Brown Brown doesn't much for give you guys. One case. I remember Jake delone was in Charlotte. Yeah, and he had Steve Smith in his prime. And if you playing fantasy football time, the loan would come out with three hundred yards receiving or excuse me a passing, but guess what? Two hundred of those yards..
