NFC West: Who will unseat the 49ers?

"So glad to be joined by Candace Silva of the rams wire as we go around the NFC west try to figure out who's going to unseat the forty Niners if they can be unseeded at the top of the division cam covers the the rams the rams who apparently are the hot bat right now to win the Superbowl at thirty to one what the hell's going on their camp yeah apparently they were the most popular Super Bowl bet of the last I think there's some were the bachelor come in anywhere on the rams won the Superbowl which is surprising because they've done nothing in the past okay two months to really bolster their claim as a Super Bowl contender in it's been a rough offseason for them so they got a bounce back in to see them as a Super Bowl favorite or not people will favor but to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon for them to win the Superbowl surprising I mean obviously they were just in the Super Bowl now might about a decade ago by our current time frame standards but it was two seasons ago and they still have the same quarterback they still have the same head coach where has it gone wrong we know what happened last year it in fact but if if people are buying in why would you say don't hi this is biggest issue right now I was really surprised that they essentially ignored the the office of identity try to remake it or bring in much talent really on the opposite line this offseason they refinance or what works best it brought back Austin blight who could play guard and center I'm so really they're sticking with the same group that they had last year there's a lot of competition really the only position that sat on the opposite wanted at left tackle with what danger what work right but the other four spots where they're gonna be competitions with Bobby Evans and rob Stein at right tackle Austin Blake and Bryan Alexander in the guard position is kind of just a mishmash of players who are relatively unproven at the NFL level so I would say that's the biggest issue switching Todd Gurley out for can makers they hope is going to be an upgrade at least hopefully in the in the explosiveness department because we do the regular Todd Gurley last season and he kind of seems like he's past his prime with the old me injury in right usage so they hope that with the improved often combined with these guys developing the younger guys and then a a better run game they're going to hopefully get back to their roots from the twenty seventeen twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen season that also supplying plan doesn't seem like a very good one considering that they're in a division with the forty Niners who I don't think I'm being a Homer here by saying that they have a pretty darn good defense of line like that that might not be a good match up for them yeah that's one of the best defensive line principality and you're gonna have it you're gonna have such a us a big mismatch every time that these teams square off because the defense of life for forty third San Francisco so good you got Nick Bosa all the guys on the interior Erik Armstead so there's gonna be tough match ups all across the front when these teams square off twice a year and you're not gonna want to right now in blocking these guys or Bobby Evans are often blight it's it's gonna be a tough match up for all these guys what's M. brings us to the cornerback what what went down with Jared Goff I mean I don't know what it was it all just smoke and mirrors in that Super Bowl season was he figured out I mean there there's been plenty of arguments I've seen a lot of smart people say listen as soon as Matt Patricia showed how to basically not bite on the play action it was game over for the rams they still made the Super Bowl but last year was not great is there any realistic expectation around the rams that they can make it jump now with you know maybe acres and there is the full time running back yeah I I wouldn't say your golf was just smoke and mirrors in twenty eighteen I thought he was a legitimate MVP candidates for most that season and then they kind of have that by the crazy Monday Night Football game against the chiefs and ever since then he's just more grass than not been the same player it was it was he was really terrible on play action last season which was a surprise but again that goes back to the office of line you just didn't have time to to get to a second read he didn't have time to to turn his back to the defense on these armies clashing passes so that a big impact but he's a player who I know they gave them a hundred thirty four million dollars but at this point in his career he doesn't seem like someone who's going to really master the issues of the rest of the offense it's not can overcome terrible off in one place so for him in the rams to really bounce back it's going to take an improvement on the offensive line golf getting back to how he was playing in twenty eighteen and then that running game coming alive and that seems like a lot of that on because it's it's everything coming together as a cohesive unit but I mean with the talent that they do have they still look really good receivers with concocting Robert wood acres and Henderson at running back our promising and golf if he if he lives up to his contracting really pleased the way the FHS quarterback showed the ram should bounce back nicely I like Henderson he came out of Memphis right yep yep he he really was under utilized last year yeah they were kind of well I wouldn't say stubborn sticking with elderly but he just didn't get many opportunities but when he did when he did get some chances he showed his show computer production yeah if you could once against the forty Niners last season to worry bounced off a few tackles and I mean he he's a smaller guy he runs hard and he he he also I'm interested to see how they utilize them with Cammy Kerr's

Memphis Police Union Head On Calls For Reform

"Simon Congress many cities states and countries say that they want to reform police practices but any reforms we need to go through police unions Michael Williams heads the Memphis police union and joins us now thanks very much for being with us Mr Williams good morning how are you fine thank you Sir I want to ask you about the commercial appeal newspaper there points out that the the twenty nineteen city budget called for two hundred sixty million dollars in police services but just a little over four million to housing and they suggested that maybe giving more people shelter it might be a wiser way to spend tax dollars and even bring down the crime rate how do you spell that it is it is hardly wholeheartedly I don't necessarily agree with the funding police but you know this is something I've been working on not just as a union president but as a citizen and as a native Mississippian we have started to spend too much money and economic development we've diverted too much money of course tax dollars into pilot when you live in the second most violent city in the nation which is massive aside from what happened to Mr Floyd which was working near active and there is money it's just a matter of prioritization we are not a bank we are a D. that the citizens pay their hard earned tax dollars which I am one of and we deserve to have a better amenities better core services and not necessarily spend all our money to make the rich richer well let me ask you something that might be a little tougher than than just money if I might put it as that well Kerr twenty eighteen there were reports that maybe the Tennessee bureau of investigation should be the responsible party for investigating officer related shootings officer involved shootings in Shelby County which is in Memphis would you advise your members not to submit to interviews in and give statements to the union right what a good deal everybody thinks that because you're a police officer you want to separate me from being a Christian everybody's entitled to their Fifth Amendment rights just because I'm a police officer don't necessarily mean that I give up my constitutional right and we encourage officers to give statement but if you're going to compare all day on the guild's statement and they should be covered by what we call god I can't even think of the name now well was that after I did give me a chance to follow up anyway recognizing that their citizens in every US citizen is entitled to right right not even close off incriminate yes exactly but what about the idea that of course police officers are also public servants who by the way are entrusted with sometimes lethal force and and that they ought to submit themselves for interviews the responsible parties as soon as possible in the public interest sure well that's not a problem but also you know just as any one of this country I love this country and what this country is built on no one everybody's innocent until proven guilty number two everybody is entitled to representation you know you try to paint not necessarily you but they're individuals I try to paint unions this organization we don't set policy so when they talk about reform and all that well we don't the city of Memphis state Tennessee legislator legislation base that policy we don't we just abide by the policies that they sent for now only just like any other organization that has the ability to say that we like this or don't like that but that still doesn't determine what policies are going to be set so you know I think that there's a bigger agenda at play when it comes to unions across this country everybody's represented yeah let me ask and we just got half an hour left we went about the forty eight hour waiting period before an officer accused of misconduct can be interviewed about it would you be willing to give that up in collective bargaining no because just like with anything everybody's traumatized when they go through a dramatic situation I'm a combat veteran and I definitely understand post about express disorder also understand so therefore when you start coming at an individual right after something happens you know it's just like a citizen our system has the ability to either talk or not talk and that's something that everyone continues to try to take away from of police officers that I don't think that that's right Michael Williams of the Memphis police unit thanks so much for being with us you're welcome

N.B.A. Owners Set a July 31 Restart, All in Florida

"Zach Lowe's senior writer for ESPN in host of the low post podcast. Zach. We're GONNA have basketball We think we're going to basketball. We'll see on July whatever July thirty first, or whatever, but yet knock on wood back on everything. Knock on heads. We stay healthy enough to have basketball. That's true I should never say anything definitively these days, but we are closer to having basketball because the NBA Board of Governors met on Thursday in voted twenty nine to one on a plan for the League to return. Return to play in Orlando at Disneyworld, twenty two teams, eight regular season Games in possible plan term, involving the eighth and ninth seeds We're GONNA have a lot of time to break down the logistics of all this how it's going to work from a public health perspective, weather not can work, but I wanted to bring you on today to talk about the basketball ramifications of this decision. Why do you think they went this particular route? Well. I think as you might expect. They were trying to balance money midst about basketball and love the game all at, but I think that it's mostly about. How can we maximize? That's why they didn't just take the sixteen playoff teams. They've tried to threadneedle of. Volume of games. Fairness to the teams that were in the eighth spot when when the seasons stopped in some potential excitement for play in teams, particularly the teams that were chasing Memphis in the western, mathematically had a decent shot, a much better shot than usual with seventeen eighteen games left to catch them. I want to talk about New Orleans and Portland particular, but I I wanted to ask why not think they went with six additional teams? Instead of four was America just clamoring for some wizards basketball, so watching the wizards. It's sort of like playing roulette. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose sometimes you leave the building weeping uncontrollably. The one thing wizards are not. This season is boring. Both those teams really wanted to play I think part of it was probably well. If we're going to have a plan in the West, it's GonNa Look Kinda dumb. If we don't have a plan in the East Lake of we just take the east team so I guess we gotta take someone. WHO's the least crappy east team left? Okay Washington. You get in well, then we have to balance it. So who's the next lease? Crappy West, okay, Phoenix urine I, and then suddenly twenty two. My opinion and I said this from the beginning, it should have been twenty. There's a hard quality gap after twenty I see no reason why these teams had essentially zero percent chance to make the playoffs are going through all this rigmarole adding seventy or eighty bodies. Me The reason why it doesn't really make sense to me is if you had told me okay, the western conference is going to have a plan tournament with three four five teams, and it's GonNa last a week or ten days and we don't want the Eastern Conference. Eight playoff team sands Washington just sitting there waiting I could buy that, but displaying tournament is not a tournament. It's one or two games. I just don't. It doesn't make any sense to me why those teams? They're not to pick on them. I just thought so get it. The PELICANS obviously were playing much higher level Oncein Williamson came back, and actually had a better point differential than Memphis for the season stopped Then you've got the blazers who are nearing full health right, which was due back after an injury marsh before all this happened. and. In hair and Nerkez the deck and Oh, I think he's hurt. His leg. Oh, his leg is right. Narco hits the deck. Which of those teams do you think is better situated to make it in Portland was also slated to have a decent easy scheduling. Everyone focused on New Orleans easy schedule because it was the easiest but Portland in San. Antonio were slated ABC. Schedules. I think you would have to go with New Orleans. Only because a they were playing really well already in. Be Like it's it's. It's exciting that use of Norwich and Zach. Collins are back in their. If their backup for these long layoffs, but they're also back after long layoffs in Nurkic in particular is coming off one of those traumatic leg injuries that it usually takes people a while to get maybe a year. Even a season at took Paul George Longtime for instance to get back to what they were before. So I think you'd have to go with new. Orleans but I would not underestimate portland.

The Kindness Of Healthcare Workers

"Let's start with a two thousand fifteen story about how a doctor. Her young patient and his family created an inspiring connection during the darkest of times. Here's the story sheer members at all. One night. I was giving my son Nick a bath as he turned his head I noticed the lump on them. It kind of fell like swollen glands, but it was big. First thing the next morning we were at the doctor's. He said he has cancer. I remember like falling to the floor crying. You know he's six years old. And I said we need to get him to Boston. We had gotten a call from the ambulance transport that he was coming I laid on the stretcher, and then they put him on top of me unbelted us in I remember pacing the floor before he arrived they open the doors and took the stretcher out I. Mean to me. It felt like there was like one hundred people standing there. And I remember melody being there and I remember her just comforting me as we got off of the ambulance. I didn't realize who she was, but I just remembered thinking all right. I'm glad that she's with me. My name is Rosemary Jensen my name's Melody Cunningham. Malady was Knicks Oncologist Nicholas was he had a hard time adjusting to people and melody he never did. He really didn't talk a whole lot. At first in Q. is just angry and afraid, but he loved practical jokes and I am more than happy to be the recipient of practical jokes, so he would put a whoopie cushion in the chair, and then of course it down and. Neck with chest, roar with laughter over and over and over and just. Swiped the heart. Right out of your chest. Knicks doctor for two and a half years, but at that point she went to a different department. Even though she wasn't his doctor, she was still involved. He loves the. Three and a half years he had twenty three surgeries. When he said to us, you know mom cannot gonNA. Die I didn't say no. I said I don't know. Nick was really sick at that point and melody came to the House. which is like a two hour drive from her house to my house? You don't see doctors doing that. Nicholas was all about the army. She had brought down her dad's purple heart. And Nicholas wishes like in awe of it. I remember bringing the Purple Heart out and talking about what it meant. And it. My father died in a car accident when I was actually Knicks Age. He. Pondered that. After I left. I know rose talk to me about the fact that he seemed. Uplifted and strengthened. And so though he never said the words and asked about dying, think in that moment we had that talk about him dying. One morning his breathing was really heavy. His nurse came in and she said. Is there anybody you want me to call when I said I need to call melody. Rose called me. It's like five thirty in the morning. Absolutely no question in my mind that I was going to be there. Off She didn't have to be there. She wasn't as Dr. But she was there. We were laying in the bed pretty much the whole day and I remember her just like. Hold my ankle. Charlie my husband someone side. I was on the other. She was behind me. She was there the whole she didn't move. I truly believe that when you can't care you. Can always he'll? Or try to heal simply by our presence, and often that presence is a silent present. And then when I felt like they needed, it lightened I would tell stories. We laughed because they were quintessential nick stories, and then of course we cried. For many many many hours. Fifteen or eighteen hours. These breaths were continuous. And then they slowed. And then they stopped. I remember laying in bed with them is holding them. And just waiting for that next breath tocom. But, it didn't come. And then I remember hair melody say he's gone rose. I knew he was gone. I just didn't want it. I didn't want him to be. That reality comes in. I think like a Su- NAMI. The funeral parlor came to get him. And she helped me dress some. She walked out with him. The constant communication with melody helps me remember Nick and brings back all of the joys I had with him. I'VE BEEN LIVING DOWN IN MEMPHIS, for the last nine years, but we still stayed in touch, even after all these years later like I'll be talking to her, and she'll tell me a funny story that I forgot. He's to rollerblade around the hospital all the time. Over the loudspeaker we had to be like Nicholas Johnson get back to your room or you're grounded. She remembers it all. Care for a family.

Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb

"Today or conversation is with music city icon drew holcomb. And you may remember that. We talked to drew's manager Paul Steal a few weeks ago. But here's the thing you need to know about drew. He absolutely refuses to be limited by other people's labels yes? He's a killer singer and songwriter. And believe me you're GONNA WANNA listen to the end of this episode. But he's used that foundation of singing and songwriting to lay a platform for becoming an entrepreneur. An investor a business owner. The guys creative he's disciplined. He's an absolute anomaly. But all of these different roles and qualities they've come together to make for a pretty remarkable and outrageous life but as you will hear his path toward becoming one of Americana Music Most beloved and authentic figures. It was one that actually started over twenty years ago and it was birthed out of a tragedy. I played music all throughout high school. I was your classic like Gout. The Guitar Planning Life and Learning Songs and having fun just with friends. I didn't write a song until I was a junior in college. I went to a personal tragedy the summer after my junior year of high school at a younger brother special needs who passed away very unexpectedly. I was actually out of the country and music was sort of thing. Kinda got me through it so really for me. Music was this personal sort of healing anchor. Anchor exactly I've no thoughts of doing it professionally especially talented at that time. I don't think so. No no not really I mean I was. I was fine You know I always had a very sort of ernest. Hard-working like plow through it. Sort of ethic involved in scouts and was in the student body organization. And all the things you know at school. I Love School. I always student so I went to school to college with the intent of going to graduate school to study. History on my goal is to write books and be a history professor so that was the dream now somewhere along the way. My junior decided to go study abroad and I studied in Edinburgh Scotland and I didn't really know anybody so I took my guitar with me. You know that was like my main hobby was playing guitar and I just started writing songs like at night. I'd finish my work or whatever three roommates. A Frenchman Franck Thomas the German Dave the Canadian and drew the American. That sounds like the makings of a killer ban. Yes that's right court. What are you studying in? Scotland studying church history so studying sort of like a variety of classes but Studying sort of fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Scotland. Studying the early sort of early Roman church so sort of. Constantine through you know the the break-up of the Roman Empire so just like nerdy stuck just had your guitar with you the whole yet. I wasn't writing songs about any of that stuff. I mean it was informing you know in a way but now I just started writing songs and really. It was diving into that pain because what I knew I was GONNA do. I started writing songs because my senior project at. Ut was an oral history about my brother. So I was interviewing fifty to eighty people. Nurses doctors friends teachers cousins. Who grew up around him in his life. And I was trying to figure out why this like kid. With Spina Bifida made such an impact when he his funeral was like twenty five hundred on my word so I was just personally curious and also just thought it was a great way to sort of put this history stuff to work to do this oral history and so part of that was started writing songs about that. Sorta as a sideline and extending come home from Scotland and start my senior year. My friends start playing songs for my friends. They're like Ayman is a pretty good. You should maybe give this a go so I started looking some gigs in Knoxville. Like at bars and I'd play covers and originals. Invite my friends out and this mentor of mine. Basically told me so. Hey man graduate. School can wait a year to like. It's not going anywhere much to take a break. Do this music thing get a job. See what happens. And that was in the fall. Two Thousand and three and here we are in two thousand twenty. Golly that's crazy so when you started doing it and you were playing in those bars. You couldn't have been making much planning those bars. No it's probably pretty scrappy beginnings for a while. I would assume yeah really four or five years of absolute scrap absolute scrap. Was that whole time where you think to yourself. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life or were you just filling time. During that season I was enjoying sort of the process of seeing the country of convincing by then friend to date me and Mary me I was enjoying the freedom I really found a lot of freedom and being my own boss that was like also and I was like well. That's pretty cool. And then also the same time I was sort of looking at the writing on the wall of the other dream going man. It's like really hard to get a real decent job at university especially as sort of a you know another southern white male just like there's a lot of those PhD's in history saturated market. So I just honestly the part of it I was really loving the business and I was finding satisfaction in putting together the band and the recording process and learning I was growing. I felt like you know all these things. I didn't understand about music. I mean as a kid you get a record and you think Oh. These people just got no room. They've set up. Some microphones push record. And that's what you hear and then you realize that. Oh It's actually this incredibly long and arduous process but very satisfying process and so I found myself enjoying it and just kept going based on my dad. You know I'm just GonNa keep doing this until it stops growing and it didn't. You're still. Here is your idol dip. It was your dad. Supportive or your parents supportive as you were kind of pursuing this dream very supportive. My Dad always jokes. He says he has all these friends that tell him like. Why did you let drew do this? And he's like I let drew do anything you know. He's twenty one years. Old graduated from College Emmy debt which was Nice Ozone. Scholarship makes a big difference in your twenty two years old about. Can you pursue this dream? Well I have all this debt and I gotta get a certain amount of money job or can I like try to do something independently with it of hamstrings you? So I didn't have any deaths and my dad basically told me like. Hey Man if you're gonNa work hard at this your mom and I are in your corner like let's go for it and actually took me guitar shop and bought me like the nicest guitar he could afford and said like this is our send you on your way thing you know. Wow so very supportive stuff had other people say like I wanted your parents. Let you do this crazy thing. Let me amount of adult. Yeah that's right. You don't have to have your parents permission but it sure helps. Psychologically I think to have people that believe in you that in your corner day deal but also. They weren't covering like they weren't paying for you to do they work. They work funding your dream. But they were supporting your. Yeah but I gave me alone ten grand and make my first record but it was expected to be paid back. And did you pay of course? I figured you're probably not still in the payment plan. No I read this in. I think it was rolling stone. That wrote it. It said while working at a Memphis studio in the early two thousands holcomb started playing small bars on weekends and eventually found himself zigzagging across the south in old Volvo Wagon and putting nearly three hundred thousand miles on the car and five years first of all. Is that true very true? John Actually totaled at around two hundred and forty thousand miles and took it around mechanic and he he made it drivable not put another ninety thousand miles on it. That's insane you're going all over and then it says initially. He says he was barely making ends. Meet playing at the most random coffee houses and community college. Lunch hours anywhere. That would give me a little scratch to play my songs. So that's a pretty accurate representation. Those first few yeah definitely and you know some of those college. Gigs were literally community colleges noon and they had these entertainment budgets that they had dispensed they bring you in. I'd bring my own P. A. And severe that set it up in the corner at start playing and literally a third of the room when they realized the somebody was sort of interrupting their lunch would put their headphones on to listen to their music. While I'm playing in the corner so you had to have pretty thick skin letting you know their checks cashed and that's how I was able to afford to keep going so it was complete survival. Did you have moments where you were just like? What am I doing at least two or three times an hour? When I was playing shows seriously though you know sometimes about halfway through that period is when I got married. Ellie was a schoolteacher and then after a year of teaching administered go on. The road means so really my last year of doing a lot of those colleges she was with me and that was so much more fun because we were just getting the car and just laugh at how terrible the experience was you know like. I said they were the gigs paid and that was the right around the time we started having some success with songs on TV and film. This song live forever came out which did really well On. Tv show. Parenthood was the season. Finale montage moment and we got paid enough to get a van and we started getting asked to go on tour other singer. Songwriters. Dave Barnes and Marvis. Are these sort of smaller. You Know Club. Things were also starting to really make real fans and then it became. Maybe I want to do this for the rest of my life. Real to that point it was like this is a big.

"John Mirant Journey Jackson fresh off a nice late night flight from Atlanta like this is the glamorous life of the NBA right. Like what time did you guys get in here last night Probably like one closer to very late. You Guys Jaren Jar. Like how much do you guys my sense? Is You guys? Do everything together home on the road. What what. What's what's it like having a guy who you connect with right away who you see there. You know you're building an organization. They're building an organization around. And like you just intertwined and the way you guys all right now I mean you know it makes it easier on the basketball court just because you know all chemistry's chemistry but At the end of the day I think it's just it's unique. Sr Ganic I think were closed group overall and we all seem to get along. Usually just 'cause usually because we're all young but I will say That it just Kinda just happened you some. You really can't can't put a finger on specifically why but it's good. What did you know about this Guy John when you get drafted by Memphis? You know. You'RE COMING MEMPHIS IT number two. What did you know about? Jaren Jackson started watching Fan. We kinda talk after the lottery. You know trying to get to know each other after I got drafted. It just went to another level again like no laughing joking all that time visual learning each other just carried over to the floor. What's it been like being without this guy on the court here? The last few weeks plane without it's been tough you know Not Too many guys can do he do on the floor He does a lot for us. spreads the flow out Protect a pain dominating. The paint was just a lot of things that you can't just add up to but she just got God and just compete each and every Jaren when you get drafted fourth and COME TO MEMPHIS. Last year you probably could sense. You're at the end of one era. Conley Marcus Saul and the team was going to cycle into. What would be the next Thera? Wha- what was it like early on last year with playing with Conley plane with the assault and then seeing the thing start to break apart over time and knowing. Hey I'm going to be kind of front and center on this rebuild here now when when the front office starts making moves you usually get wind of you know things are going to start changing Mike and Marken. Everybody did a great job of leading in doing but they did for so many years that they kind of put the team in a great position. Where me and Dylan at the time. Who were there can make an impact going forward and we know how to carry ourselves handle ourselves and then we add him it. Just it makes everything easy so it was quick though because last year it was a completely different team has come. It's now completely whole thing now. How much do you guys hear about like Memphis is used to have like a partnership right? It was Marcus Hall and my colleague for a very long time. They accomplished a lot got to the playoffs. Every year advanced in the playoffs. When you listen to the fan base or you listen in that community and even maybe around the building in the organization about sort of standard those guys set like professionalism and how they went about their business. Do you still feel it around the organization a little bit. Did you hear about it? A Lot. I mean. Of course you hear it a lot. Those guys meant a lot to Memphis But I mean we're a new team like you said So we just go out and just try to us and instead of liberal somebody else life You know just go out and compete. Just play together. Shot to get wins. This was you know how it goes when you have first year. Second Year guys. You're supposed to be in the lottery. You're supposed to take your bumps over few years and then maybe two years from now you compete to get the eighth spot is a seven spot in the West and here you guys are holding down the eighth spot. You've done it with injuries with guys out with some teams on your tail within your group. Was there much conversation earlier about. Maybe we're a little bit better than people think and maybe we shouldn't be putting any limits on what we can do. It is not easy to make the playoffs in the West. You guys know what you go through every night. But what was the conversation among the group about that? Maybe this would be better quicker than than anyone else imagined. We was looking to the future. We always focused on. The president thanked the first message. We sent out to each other worse. We try to be good now. So we'll doing that. We could Practicing hard you know just trying to get better each and every day Just trying to continue to learn grow. We got a young team we had some vets. We got some young coaches. So does everybody know just bought into what we have to do. Learning everything and then once we got clicking. We just went on a row. Now I think from from the start. We knew our building what we're capable of. But like you said you know. Stay in the president's key I think when you stay in the present and do just your habits. Every day everything works out the way it should if you just put in the work and you know that's what we did and we've always been confident in income from anything and income from Windsor. We just were GONNA have the confidence regardless to go out there and play because we're doing what we love at the end of the day doesn't doesn't matter for winning or losing. Brennan do the same thing. Yeah Jaren you've seen Gye. He's had two plays this year that I think John has gotten more like made more. Highlights gotten more attention for to miss dunks right than anybody gets on made ones the. Kevin Love One earlier this season and then Anthony Davis the one the other night like. Are you guys waiting for him? Like one of these days. He's one of those is going to go down against one of these guys right like like you get a little closer on those. When he's put trying to put one down on seven foot all star guy in this league. Are we getting closer to seeing it? I mean you've already seen it as well and there's a lot a lot of crazy he's missed. But there's a lot of crazy nineties made and you're gonNA see a probably a lot of both for a many years but he's got to remember that at the end of the day that's that's not all to his game You know those dunks are crazy but you know the other parts of his game. The fact that he's able to read the flooring has like he is the reason why we're getting wins. And that's pretty much all I care about at this point. Do you fear for his safety? And he's he's ten feet up in the air flying. He's it's a hard landing on those zero party like all right. Don't get hurt doing these. Maybe maybe on a couple of hours but I you know body control. He has good body control. So you know we work on. We work on stuff like that Landings and jumping and stuff to make sure that doesn't happen so yeah I'm not. I'm not worried about do in that moment. What is how in your mind. Are you calculating? Sort of the risk reward of one down on somebody about because you get caught up in the air you get hit or is it just instinct. You just see the rim and just go just go always address of my mindset was just finished play Honestly don't care who's under the go Stood I say my set. So the one. The other night was a moment. You thought I got this one. I've got this one just caught the back door and we're just going to finish They ended up quality to charge. But I mean I just wasn't able to get our before I wasn't able to get up for They call it Scotts turf builder. Thicker Lawn has announced.

nation will be for the articles of impeachment and whatever else they're going to be going on I know the the house Judiciary Committee just finished up on I guess whatever rules they're going to go over yeah it's going to be the rest the rest impeachment and that's exactly what the plan is there going to hurry up and do this go and check every box that along the way and make sure that the members of the Democratic Party don't have the option to leave town without impeaching the president then they can you know make sure that they don't have more people to fact and not present in the new polls are out it's a big swing in there was a poll simple the came out so Levin point swing and the last two weeks of people that were in favor of impeachment you are no longer in favor of impeachment are among independent it's four and a half points overall nationwide but in swing states the numbers are significant in swing states and so I think what you're saying now is Democrats realize they made a mistake and their chart hurry up and see the mistake through I guess to put it behind them so that may be it's forgotten in time for the twenty twenty election is that the font no because it looked when you've got a big civil war this growing within the Democratic Party right now and that is look Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler and Steve Cohen for example these types of Democrats they are in districts where they're not having to worry about losing their job because of impeachment what the problem is and and it seems like in leadership the only one that really realized this is Nancy Pelosi but she also wants to make sure that she stops because I house she is is trying to figure out how do you do this without losing these other member these other people like I said they don't care I mean you know if you impeach Donald Trump it's a personal you know then data for Steve Cohen he hates him you hate him since day one anyone to stick it to the man he's in a district where you can do are irresponsible partisan hack relax yes or a cute you know which is what this really is literally overthrowing the will the people because what his mentality is I don't care about trump's orders because I don't represent the misty color does not represent you if you're concerned that if he doesn't listen to you if you're a Republican he doesn't listen to you if you voted for Donald Trump so he doesn't care that he alienates you because in his district he can do that what with the Democrats have done those and lefties other Democrats literally let them hang out to dry and it's it's pretty pathetic then Ferguson joining us on the show this morning and I guess they're supposed to be a Democrat debate Thursday night but I was talking with tiny J. powers a few moments ago and that may not even go down due to a worker strike there in the area yeah which is in that ironic yes don't you thank I mean it's it's hysterical those strike would make you not have a debate it would be an embarrassment but it's a match and if this happened in a Republican debate it would be wall to wall news coverage I'm sure the Democrats will you know just kind of in the media will just kind of overshadow it and do the bare minimum reporting act like it never happened yeah Ben Ferguson joining us on the on the program what else you gonna be touching on look at later on today yeah I think we'll be talking about this the politics of these poll numbers are errors interesting that come out while this talk about that one of the crime report as well as for Clark with some of the crimes committed in which you get it on this really cool weather as well all right then all right get a few flurries this morning thanks for getting up and have a Cup of coffee with us and we

"Associate editor of the Memphis business journal, our friend Megan Nichols. Megan. Thanks for joining us. How are you? A hope you are thawing out like the rest of us doing well. Good morning guys. Yeah. It's great to have you back on the program. Okay. Big announcement from Electrolux that seems to be making all the headlines what's going on with Electrolux? Yeah. So this is certainly the big headline. Yesterday was news that the Electrolux Memphis plan is going to be closing in twenty twenty so at its peak plant employed more than a thousand people currently has about five hundred and thirty employees locally, but the company is apparently consolidating its cooking products appliances business to Springfield, Tennessee. And it's going to be reinvesting in that plant Electrolux has previously stated how about ten percent of its North America revenue came from a Sears, essentially, so Sears bankruptcy has certainly had a negative impact. But Electrolux received a significant amount of incentives for its Memphis facility. So still lots of questions that need to be answered. But there were apparently not clawback provision for those incentives. So currently the state in Shelby county remain on the hook for a lot of that original investment to get them here. Now, meghan. I know what a clawback is. But for those that may not know in our audience. What does it clawback when it comes to a pilot? So essentially, it's if they were to leave before the pilot wants to expire, there'd be some provision where the incentives, and they might have to pay back where they then send it to be called off. So you kind of it's a safety net for our investment. But that was not in that contract. No, we're going to have to wait and see on this one. Oh, I wonder if that was a cut and paste wonder about that Meghan Nichols associated or the Memphis business journal joining us this morning. Other big company news FedEx retirement age. I changed their. Yes. So there's two kind of things that came from the board of directors this week with FedEx, I other notable news was Dave bronze Accu the president CEO. Fedex just was elected to the company's board of directors. So that decision is effective immediately. But the board also announced changes to the company's corporate government guidelines so previously. There was a mandatory retirement age for seventy five years old now that age requirement only applies to nonmanagement directors. Fred Smith is currently seventy four years old. So that's the adjustment in that rule. It'd be yeah. It'd be kind of weird to boot the founder of the company. Yeah. Meghan Clark tower getting a new tenant. Yeah. So little headquarter relocation news true. Temper sports is getting ready to move its headquarters to Clark tower. So true temper, which is one of the leading manufacturers of golf shafts is currently headquartered out and turnament drive in Southwind, but they're going to be moving to Clark tower in east Memphis, the company said they wanted to be in the heart of the city, rather than the suburbs. And that's kind of a larger plan to grow their local employees account by fifteen to twenty percent in the next couple of years. They wanted to space it would help attract some new talent. So that's supposed to be built out this spring, and they'll be moving in shortly after that. So I guess a warning into be careful for folks over at the Lenny's and over at the vitamin Shoppe and Home Depot if they start testing drivers on top Clark tower could be a problem across right? Four five six seven and eight you're hitting it off a Clark tower. Megan Nichols, the associated or Memphis business journal checking in with us this morning, Pyros one of my favorite pizza places in town. They've they branch out to not just hot food but cold to.

"William bell at pure stacks, sixty eight Memphis story new box that commemorates the incredible year that nineteen sixty eight was for stacks records and also in American history and the history of the civil rights movement to and we're gonna talk more about nineteen nineteen sixty eight. But I I want to hear a little bit more about your own personal history with stacks records, which I understand began long before that in in the early sixties. So so tell me about first signing with stacks. What was the what was the deal? Came to stacks that to the attention of stacks. I had a vocal group called the del Rio's. And they wanted some backup singing behind collar Thomas's. Gee whiz. So that was how I came to stacks to do some backup work with my vocal group, and we cut a couple of sides stacks like this the way we sound the sound and everything and we cut a couple of forty five during that time with stacks and nothing major happen. But chips moment wanted to sign me other solo artists, and eventually I signed, and I was the first single male artists that they signed on the Stax label because they were satellite records earlier. And so I signed on with them. They had Rufus some Carlin and the head them. Marquees, but the male artist, I was the first one that they signed that really put them on the map with you. Don't miss your water. So that was your big big single in nineteen sixty one. Can you tell me a little bit about what the studio is like around stacks at at that time in those early days. Kind of bland that in the early days because it was a a vacant theater building. And they converted it into a studio. So we just had bam minimum of things to work with. So we had to be really created without sound and everything, but it was a place that had an unusual sound just great musicians that came through and we developed it, and and nurse didn't honed it and made we didn't know it was going to have this kind of longevity. But it did. And we made at a career out of it. We're gonna play a little bit of that first single that you're that you're mentioning you. Don't miss your water until your well runs. Dry. Can you tell me maybe how some of the creativity that you're talking about like having really get creative? With the space applied to to making this song. Sound the way that it does? We were like mayhood kids all of us were Dinu Booker. And we went to same high school. I knew David porter Isaac all of us were just kids in the neighborhood, man. When you say. Okay. And and so the actual recording of it was just getting a bunch of young kids together and seeing what kind of talent and how we fit in. And we just worked at it. We really had led going to university we had to hone our craft and learn how to really right correctly asong that told the story and three verse, of course, a less, and and it was at the beginning trial and error. We went through a lot of musicians that because it would not only about the talent. But the middle attitude, and how you fit into what we would doing and the kind of music because we were at that time, which was not fashionable. It was during daren't segregation years, and we will. Mixed crowd mixed. Racially, and but we inside the confines of stacks. We will one family and that was important, and we just really created some just dynamic creations there in terms of music. I wanna come back to that very special place that that stacks occupied. I think in a racially segregated Memphis in nineteen sixty eight and a little bit. I know that's a really fascinating an important part of the story. But where we are right now, we're we're in nineteen sixty one and I wanna play a little bit of you. Don't miss your water until your well runs dry. So here we go. Now. You don't miss you..

"And this is a pro every day Mark the same way all of our guys like we don't have guys who take plays off. We don't have guys who take practices off, you know. So I appreciate it. So when a guy says something to you, you know, you're probably in the wrong, which was you know, that to be that line between staying true to what you believe your values are thought out over the summer in a preseason of how you're going to do things and how you think it fits your group? But then to be able to just go off of it. And that's that ability coach has to have. To say to stop saying. Let's just keep doing it 'til we do it right versus. Maybe we're not doing it. Exactly. Maybe we should do it differently. Well, I think what it comes down to is understanding that it's not about you. And the only thing that matters is what's happening with the team. So if you've got something that you think is unbelievable. And you know, you put all this time and work and all this. If it doesn't work for the group of guys that you have it doesn't matter. So if you go into a situation with the idea that the team is always first then it makes your decisions easy. You know, you don't have to sit there and rethink it. It's it's not about us as coaches it's about what's best for the team. And you know, I can be wrong. You know what? I mean. I got no problem with that guy tells them, hey, you know, this made work a little better for the group that we have I'm open. It's easy. Obviously there's certain core principles that we have. But you know, whatever's best for the team as far as long as it is for the team. It's not what's best for me as. A play or me as this player me.

"I mean, we're not playing exactly the same. You know from a defensive standpoint we hope to get after you offensively. We are shooting more threes shooting a higher percentage from three that type of thing to kind of keep up with where the league is going. But we've got a mindset of you know, we're going to get after you defensively we're going to try to play harder than you every single night. We're going to try to be unselfish to me. That's the city of Memphis at I've seen, you know, in the short time that I've been there like you couldn't coach the Lakers play this way. Right. Right. Yeah. It's identity the market.

Memphis, what Memphis state, and then, of course, university of Memphis and all the players who've come from there while it still a relatively newer NBA market. It's a pretty sophisticated basketball market. They appreciate how you play in the way do it. And it's a high Q basketball town to which I think is, you know, it's a unique situation where you know, they see what's going on. They recognize it. And they understand it. They come to our games. They watch what our guys are doing. They watched a style that they play they watch and recognize the extra pass they watch and recognize the extra rotation. You know, you go out in about town.

"Harry one welcome in to another addition of the wochit, pod Herron Manhattan with Memphis grizzlies, coach JV, Bickerstaff GB. How are you? I'm doing good long-term. Ben traffic was crazy. Oh, yeah. You what what was longer traffic from the airport to lower Manhattan or the flight from Memphis to New York? It had to be the it's always it's always like that. When I have to go from jersey to Brooklyn some nights. I'm like I could fly to Atlanta faster, then go twenty eight miles right in the car to go over to bridges. This point in the season. You guys have gotten off to a terrific start. Who are the teams either you played or new prepared for or you're watching and you're going while because I think some people look at Memphis and say, hey, I'm some are surprised I think others aren't they just see that you're healthy? But who've you played this year or who have you watched. And you said hey that team. I like what that team's doing that team surprise me or I that seems maximizing what they have right? I think the Tina stands out. Most of my mind is the clippers the job that doc has done the the group of guys that they've assembled and the way that they're playing, you know, everybody says they don't have a star. But they have a bunch of really really good basketball players. They got guys. They're back court may be one of the best defensive bag courts. You know, the young kid is really really good defensively. Avery Bradley is really good Patrick Beverley is really good defensively. And then obviously they got guys like to buy his hairs gala Nari, Lou Williams who. Can score the ball. And then you know, give mantras at ton of credit. You know, he's come up huge form you had him in Houston. Yeah. Exactly. And it was he was one of those guys that it was like if he got minutes. Good things we're going to happen because he just plays so hard. And I think he's gotten better. He's learned how to use the length of his arms to help him finish around the pain early in summer league when he played force. He would get his shot blocked a lot when his rookie year. But he's figured that out. Now, he knows how to move the ball around. He knows how to use his body to create those opportunities for himself. So give them a ton of credit for giving better. I think this year has been an example, clippers are great example of this. But this year has been an example of we all make lots of sumptious come into a season, and what it's going to be. And it's like, oh, it's just gonna be Golden State Boston. They both got clear lanes to the finals and maybe for Golden State. That's still very much. The case wants healthy Boston has struggled more and they're figuring things out. But when you look at the standings twenty games in which usually appoint. Organizations are saying they're starting to decide are we buyers are we sellers who are we where do we fit in the league? I think there's more confusion among teams of who they are even an who others are than we've seen other years despite into the into the season. Yeah. I would agree. I mean, you know, there's you know, you look at the standings you watch games. And there is some some guys that we thought our teams that we thought would be shoe ins to be in whatever position whether in the playoffs out of the playoffs. And you know, there's not that clear. Cut separation between teams. So it's fun. You know to be a part of it because every single night, you know, even this early in the season, you're still jockeying and you're hoping to give yourself and opportunity in April. But you know, the Portland's of the world the clippers of the world we talk about like, they're people who have been, you know, surprising. So to speak..

"Now, back to last podcast on the left. Admittedly with buyers, there was actually more evidence for him being the murderer than there was for the west Memphis three, and we'll get an all that later. But as we know, just a scant bit of evidence does not emerge for make suppose the point of all this is that while the cops did investigate buyers more than other parents buyers wasn't the only parent who should have been looked into, then there was the matter of Mr.. Bojangles the restaurant? Yeah. Really. We notice when the beginning of in the beginning of the devils there was like there's a map of west Memphis. And the first thing before I said reading, it was a arrow towards the bojangles in town. I was like, is this just like their impromptu city hall? Is that. Rent out the party room for most court case. It's a pretty good deal free app. It's a problematic name. Is that correct? Bojangles that I don't think so. Okay. Mr Bowe jail, you know, the Jerry, Jeff Walker, I know the dance for you Ben, the old soft shoe. Oh, absolutely. Well, I hope he has. I hope it's hard shoes for walking. So at around eight forty on the night of the murders, a call was made to the west Memphis police department from bojangle's fast food that bleed black guy entered the restaurant and hid in the bathroom. He left by the time, the cops at arrive, but there was plenty of blood, for example, scrapings were made that night but were quickly lost. Oh, brilliant. And this is only important because a hair belonging to a buck dude was found at the crime scene. Very interesting. And it's possible that at the very least they could cross reference to the DNA eventually because it was ninety. Three DNA wasn't like a super strong thing just yet, but in the future it could have been possible. They could cross reference that hair with the blood and they could've seen like, okay, well maybe it's the same guy here, but they lost the samples. Now I just don't understand and maybe you guys can tell me a little bit how the hell do you lose the sample? Don't you just go. On like, how does that happen? Mr. bead. Okay. Well, that makes sense. I'm not saying definitively that one of the parents or the men who came to be known as Mr. bojangles is the killer or part of a killing team. Excuse me here Mr. Marcus Mon is Frederick bojangles Representative jangled, and we wanna say, we would like to frown upon the use of this possible suspect and being named Mr Boge because it does not reflect the pinion of bojangles. We just feel that people should eat the chicken. Absolutely. The point I'm trying to make here is that there were very specific lines of investigation that the west Memphis PD Khuda taken, but didn't from the very beginning. The words of Jerry driver and Steve Jones carried some weight and both the community and in the police department, it seems I though that the lead investigator detective, Gary Goetchel treated. The whole satanic thing is a very unlikely. Third option get Joel. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Buddy. Looks like a two reminds me of Hugh minds me of the bad CD dude from Ghostbusters to Gary gets you'll. He also sounds like he was born with a kangaroo patch, but in his lip just made for chewing tobacco much. That's my two pouch. So get, you'll held a press conference concerning the murders, engage three options..
