"This. Distinguished looking gentleman on the back row. Wasn't the back rail of the chapel. It was the back row with image off and it was into place a usually sat. Larson told me the story of the visit. What tom had asked and bishop had told him a bishop by green completely with his approach. And of course. I wondered to bishop larson about whether or not Tom was any relative to other christoffersen. I think at that time bruce. I'm not sure that you knew that. Or a hewlett even raise that with 'em so we didn't know that right. Yeah the creek. I didn't figure out until a month. Two later that tom happened to be related to to christopher's and it didn't cross my mind. That certainly wasn't his being welcomed with not contingent upon being related to somebody important or or anything else tonight and jump into that for a second. Because i've always felt like that was a particular blessing of that circumstance that i didn't have to wonder if by interaction with my church leaders was because of my brother wise but the other ones and that this was the answer that they would give to anyone who who had the same desire that i am. Now i've been really grateful for that in the timing of everything that happened to reopen. My relationship with time wasn't known until later right on but he wasn't a concern to us at all more importantly we were just concerned that as award family we gather around and strengthen and blasts and and that welcome. Tom and Tom got to know people in the ward. And i would see him there. I'm i finally asked me with them and just support. What bishop larson had said. And then we became friends over a period of time including berry memorable dinner between he and its partner and my wife and i where we talked about a whole bunch of things at a restaurant in canaan and the at a wonderful dinner together and relationships were developing both thomas. His bishop and tom with his state president and we were It became close friends. And that aided i think tremendously and whole process it's beautiful. I love that. I'm trying to figure out the best way to ask this at the. Nih this because it may some people listening may not fully understand but as bishop you're sort of always thinking about different things because different opinions on the ward. What do people think in person coming. Just make a statement. Will they make their relationship with their partner. Obvious to the point. That makes others comfortable so i would guess for for some bishops bishop arson sitting having this individual. Come to your home and say i'd like to attend with award and of course you can come but did you feel tempted into saying as long as you do this and don't do that and be sure to not draw attention. They're you know they. I don't want to be fully loving but again as bishop as an administrator you sort of think about those things that go through your mind. Look i can get rent from my mind a little bit or one of the things. I did immediately following the conversation. That initial conversation meeting tom i had was. I asked tom permission. If i could share our conversation with award council so that they were both aware of the conversation. I had for very clear what i had said to tom. In network council conversation was not a discussion about. is tom. welcome but it was a conversation with no prodding encouragement at also me about. How do we make tom. You're welcome and his partners. And so you know. The group was very embracing a know kind of across the leadership of award. And i felt that was an important message to san antone tone to set but at one point tom you know asked me what. What do i say if people ask me if i'm married and i i sort of jokingly told palm i didn't live a good idea to lie a church and so she should be very open and transparent and honest i guess i i left in the back of my mind. You know tom. I could fan the intent of tom's heart in our meeting and it was not to barge in and make a statement it was the come and worship and strengthen his relationship with his father in heaven so in the back of my mind. I didn't really worry about you. Know what a penis partner show affection to each other in sacramento appropriate. I thought i would probably talk to him. Like i would any other couple. You know you'd bam's yourself lower insurance unless you know. I never really worried about it because this is in any way whatsoever tom. Pensions were told. They were which was becoming worship and strengthens relationship with his father. in heaven. your this great and going back to that. That conversation hadn't worked council was something. The council responded well to and and better prepared them to talk about it. Look i think. We benefited a lot from our geographic location. Being affirmative right outside of new york city where you know people in our congregations familiar with much more familiar with the lgbtq community and they're very employers diversity efforts etcetera so there really was no gas or moment all when people looked at each other like. What is that they're talking about. It really was a conversation around gush. Should we assign home teachers. Got how can we include him in this or that it was never a debate about is can welcome. It was really just. They offer conversation around. How do we do our best to make him and his family. Welcome love that. In an i ask. Those sounds ridiculous. And the part of me as as i asked that but because of the day. It's not a big deal. When somebody's shows up to church you know regardless of their background. But but you want to obviously bring your to speed ensure that the questions are answered there to sort of get ahead of it but at the same time. Not turning it into this okay. This really different persons coming. And we've all got to be ready right you have. I look i feel. I feel the hard slow. The board members were ready to see kind and loving calm to anybody else. Who through the door. We we seen that witness that in the past whether somebody was a different ethnic background or socio economic background there was a lot of there was just left at the door and i think that made it easy for the word members to deal with it. I think probably helped. In ability to watch the dylan and feel somewhat welcome and i think an important other point. I would just emphasize us that welcoming and accepting for tom with not conditioned upon him showing some measure of progress toward becoming un. Gay or.

"Brought up Uber to me at last night at the action said all these teams are now dropping back in pick and roll on defense the way Hebrew would just hang around the rim the Lopez brothers Rudy Gobert on and on could he actually be back in the league if he wanted to and I said he didn't get out of the League because of his defense he he was run the league because he couldn't do anything on offense anymore he couldn't shoot. You can run. You couldn't do it but his career arc in this whole as a side character in this whole thing thing is like really fascinating but what till your point though. How good were you really if you were nearly neutered by ever well and so all of this this is derrick? Rose gets injured and all of these sort of like the pacers sort of rise up into this like semi void in the East and like in the big picture. They're just there that back like they were the third seed that you're the knicks. Were the second seat. They're a good team. They matched up well with the heat but they they were a good team. That was inflated flavor. By how bad the east was top to bottom. and like in the macro sense there's no metric that screams like this is a legitimately dislike championship caliber eighteen and the heat limped by them. But as you said they were a really good matchup for Miami. They defended the hell out of them. Paul George was like exploding onto the scene. Those are fun. Series is is your larger point though that one of the reasons that perhaps Miami gets overlooked for that four year period is because there wasn't excellence to meet them. There wasn't enough excellent missile in the east guide. Great once Lebron left and all the other teams like okay. Now we can win or Jaanus Yonathan. The sixers sort of naturally emerged into their prime. But the east was just I. It was really really bad. I I'd have to really study it. The East might have been better during his time in. Cleveland was during his time in Miami. The competition to get out of the East might have been better and you can say if you were looking to diminish what it is that they accomplish that what was coming to meet them in the finals of from the Western Conference it had been a great attrition. Right when you go from James Harden Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook together to all of a sudden the Popovich Spurs the Dallas Mavericks. Those are all very different teams. You know what I mean and you didn't know who the hell was gonNA come out of. That's why the argument that the their one shot away from going one in three. It's interesting but you could do that to allow the teams that won championships. If not for this than this if not for this and this and it's not persuasive so much to me also because those two spurs teams were awesome historically awesome teams the team that beat them in the finals. The Spurs team of two thousand fourteen. The revenge team I at the time I think had the best scoring margin in through the playoffs of any team ever in the history of the NBA. They destroyed everybody including the heat. The thunder were the only team that push them will actually get Dallas. took him to seven random in the first round but the bottom line is they. They were unbelievable team to split against that team. That's that's a nice outcome. I don't care if it took a crazy ray Allen show you were at that game I assume right yes. I was not at that again. What are your memories from? Where are you are you still in your proper seat when I was Still in my seat yes As I recall we were making fun. John of Stugatz because he had left the the arena and was trying to get back in the he one of those guys yes yes he went and he was like Banging banging on the door and I remember being Bothered that everything that team had been through. That people were so many people were leaving so fast Just because I thought that team deserve better as somebody who I mean they came I. I hadn't been writing about sports. It had been many many years since I've written about sports and there was that that team that electricity that connection to the city that vibrant I Yeah I was working that night as I was many of those nights writing and I was just sort of stupefied I sat there. I didn't process all of it the way that you normally would. If you were just just watching a game I was confused like did that just happen. Wait a minute because the size of it. That so much had built up to that moment over three years Three years right. Was it three years. That are third year together. Yeah that yeah it was it. It just sort of felt like it mattered in a really unusual way and I I was in that moment Not a not much of a professional. Well Hey look that I mean. I don't know what I did on my pro. I was not probably fell off my couch in astonishment. That that that that had happened It's the greatest shot ever. I think it's I think it's better than the Kyrie Irving shared. Better is the wrong word. But I I think it's the greatest shot ever and that's why they signed Ray Allen. That's why hi Fred Allen went there and and you know they're they're. It's not an accident that he hit that precision of it is not though when you think when you go back and you know you know how meticulous ray was like the number of things that have to be coordinated for him to know the spacing on the floor you know you know how obsessive compulsive he was about preparation right and so if you could deconstruct like the steps. He had to take to know where he was for them not to have to go to replay to find out whether or not he was actually behind behind the three point. Line or not Yeah that was pretty cool. Cool moment I gotta go back and read. Did you write a game story like a column from the game or something. I gotta go back and to see that I just remember reading some of the details. This was afterward just it. This would require some reporting on. Just how many years of preparation went and into the specifics of Ray Allen knowing how to get to that corner that way because that that situation was not unique damn because of the number of times in practice I mean I. I don't know if I did have OCD. But the way that he was proud would practice would be kind of OCD and so he just sort of knew the dimensions the court by feel and then of course they go onto win game seven. It's actually when you think about the emotional gut punch it's to disperse credit. That game seven was as close as it was in required. A couple of big defensive plays in in a big Lebron jumper to win the game and that was that was a tight game. All the way through is that the one where Dunkin missed the layup that was like two minutes left they almost lost game seven. What are the only times you will ever see? Tim Duncan this show frustration on the fleece. I believe he slapped the floor. I was really angry with himself. Ephraim stetch dot and then for the Spurs and the Spurs were out for blood the whole next year day regrouped from that. I'm not sure any team has ever regrouped from gut and that's not even a gut punch that's like your guts are literally ripped out and thrown. That is stunning though. Isn't it that that team just didn't break at that. That point that somehow that all those guys would come back at that age and and put on that particular onslaught where they ended the Miami Heat and et with with a total whimper. That that entire experiment ended the wrong way. All that loud noise ends at the end with with a whimper. Because of just how good San Antone tone with with the spurs passing circles around them engine nobly on an injured leg dunking on Bosch in the last game in San Antonio and Ginobili didn't dunk all that much by it by that point in his career.

Might be one of my top ten games ever have just from Lake. Since I've been doing this professionally was game. Six of the Spurs Thunder Conference Finals to get into the finals. It in twenty. ooh I remember watching that game in a bar. That game was crazy. So that's so that series went and remember that the thunder in two thousand twelve had upset the spurs burs. Who had won twenty in a row in to get to the finals that the thunder were a bad match? Up for the Spurs and the Spurs into it a Missed the first two games because they were so much younger like it just felt like all fast twitch muscle visor arms everywhere arms and dudes jumping in my face enough spurs geezers or like yeah. We're smart we can pass but like these arms. There's allow arms all around me right now. It's like the athletic guys that the Y.. Playing against the dad who's forty five years old but has played for a long time and he's got like the roly-poly pudgy moves and stuff and once athletic is figuring without a little bit del guys in a little bit more trouble than he thinks. Baca misses the first Games Spurs. Go Up to a thunder roar back to to win. backend returns through Spurs game five at home three two game six and okay see Tony. Parker gets hurt in the first half they throw cory. Joseph in WHO's like an unknown seldom use any scores a couple of baskets plays well and I think it's closer tied or something at halftime and then close the entire second half it goes to overtime. Quite Leonard has an insane scene chase down block of Russell Westbrook somewhere. That's series was. That was the has I think once the Spurs got by that. I've never really talked with them about that. I'd I'd bet they viewed that as like we respect the heat but I think they were pretty confident in that series against the heat that they were going to win that series. I think Oklahoma City was almost as much of a Bugaboo Kabuki. them the spurs can feel pretty good about the idea. I know it's looked back on as the warriors doing it. But the spurs in some ways can feel pretty good about out ending both the Miami thing and the o'casey thing because the o'casey thing was supposed to be a lot bigger and better than it was and San Antonio with its ability to who'd old man their way Pass that Oh Casey team like I don't I don't know if Westbrook and durant relationship ever recovered from it because you remember during that series series it was all. I think that's where it started. Hey this westbrook's inefficient like he's I felt like that was the series where that began. I might be wrong about that. It was already going on before them but I maybe it exploded in that series. Like me shield. He's the Meat Shield for Durant durant. Never gets any criticism. It's all Russell Westbrook's fall. Even if he scores forty five. I felt like it started. During that series my recollection might be run but you are ahead of the game mathematically then you you were doing more efficiency analysis before then you might have been talked. Maybe I don't I've I've never been a huge rust guy. My is a great players sides. Think he's a little right. That's all inefficiency that. Yeah it's hard to. He shoots really poorly snow snow around it. One of the worst three point shooters by volume in the history of the the worst. The worst I just know the spurs when that series was tied to the thunder they were really really worried that From talking to people in that team they were there was there was a moment where they were like..

"November. He'll be back for survivor series where you're getting conflicting reports or or how confident were you that he'd be able to come back from this well. We were hopeful obviously because we knew that we stumbled on to the to the OUGHTA say that we've had in years maybe ever arguably but there was no guarantee on rather he was coming back. The diagnosis was if he heals as we think he can and he might then if those stipulations are in place ace you might get him back in a couple of three months but it had a lot of things had to happen and get in play before that was that was possible title and I know that you know he he had a bad start with football things like that but we didn't we weren't realize this nice to know society narrowing of the spinal cord so there was no guarantee when he was coming back and you can't booking you can't go out your back when I was looking at house shows at that time and I was I couldn't go down to my booking ago. Okay I'll do three months here. Then I'll book Stephen Card in three months wants because it would have been false advertising because we weren't sure that he was gonna come back at during that timeframe forever so it's very touch and go very very tenuous nerve wracking to say the least that you want to get your guy back. That's you're planning on giving a bunch of carries too so it it was a challenging to say the least every day. We got updates. I made more more than one trip to San Antonio from Stanford to go. Check on him. He saw great right Dr there named Lloyd Youngblood of Aleve. This Fella's name is great and here's the thing he was local. He's an expert in the he was local for St and St trusted to guy and that really meant the world found a doctor that he really trusted and it can be discovered zone at home in San Antone tone twenty got that taken care of so no guaranteed man. There's no guarantee at all this. It was very hand hand ringing. You know we weren't sure and so every day I would be on the phone with st or Deborah his wife's have taught and and make sure that what's going on how you feeling today the tingling or this that and the other and he was going through a gamut of emotions you know these very emotional guy and that's one of the things that has made him great and the things he does. He's got he's very very passionate and so he he was he was a he takes valley's Conrad on his moves mood 'cause he didn't know either eat enough his career and he was making a lot of money eight just on that house of five hundred grand just on the house. He'll made a proctor. She's twenty five thousand dollars at night well. This House is two hundred and twelve grand here for about I know talking about the the the bad Ed Blood House half a million dollars right. No bad blood was to twelve. Was it really okay well so he made made over ten grand on the House Sologne five percent of the gross and then he didn't pay per view money so point being that he'd never made that kind of money in this whole entire life eh seven years starving in Memphis work you know in Dallas. which is you know a dysfunctional world so he finally got to where we WANNA be well that one stop shop and he w here we we we are and then you know he was very it was very moody very emotional that his dream was over and all I could ever do it was just continue to courage him that your dream isn't over? It's it's not over until the doctor tells you over and he has said that so give Mother Nature a chance to heal your big ass and then let's see what happens you you you mentioned a minute ago that you would call the house and check in with him and I'm sure Tomlin just runs together but at this time ever still married to Steve and I think Steve was married to Jeannie any Clark what was what was that dynamic life in late ninety seven. I mean we know that you know just reading. The tea leaves that genie in Steve. We're going to get divorced and ninety nine. Does him being homeless. Tom Had added pressure because Rick is talked about on the Rick Flair show that he didn't know how to be home after years and years of being on the road all the time when he's actually home after his retirement he didn't know how to be home. He just he had ever experienced in his relationship suggest before because he was always gone first of all I POW Josh those two marriages confused well. Here's the thing Steve was facing the heartbreak of not being able to get back in the ring and continue this amazing run that he's just started. We're just getting under just getting released and rolling and he was living in a bad marriage so him being home wasn't good at all and so I missed he had a surgery youngblood later on but you know he wasn't good slot. It wasn't a good space right there and that's why I think that you know calling him on a regular basis sitting little notes or whatever helped it it let him know that we're still thinking about him. You know occurred vista call every now and then what he could so but it wasn't a good environment I prefer Steve It wasn't the ideal healing environment with his career in jeopardy and his marriage in jeopardy it was a great place to be for him well and the WWF ring as where he really wants to be and you gossip gotta find a way to keep some attention on him. Keep him in front of the audience keeping in hot but you've got to be creative because he can't wrestle and unfortunately he's got a lot of hardware. He's one half of the TAG team Champs and he's intercontinental champ. We know at Ground Zero. They're gonNA around new tag team champions and unbelievable to say it's the head Bangers who wind up winning which we've talked about before and The stunner on these authority figures is is what we're going with during this time you catch a stunner sargent slaughter cash is a starter and famously at the Madison Square Garden Raw Vince would take the world's worst honor who comes up with the idea of him rebelling against the Authority figures and just issuing stunner since he can't wrestle because this is something that in hindsight if he wasn't hurt. I don't know that this would've worked as well this this probably helped him get over just as well or as fast as anything he could have done in the ring one. Have People love to see the stuttered delivered. We've seen that lately when he goes back to raw few weeks ago steagall talking about about part of me he was the Big Star Card that includes all the guys that are paying massive money to right now today to be made of Enersen be an insult tickets nobody in the current. WW Roster is as over even today is Austin is today and on that occasion back in those days you know and that era a he was he was he was Hogan like evolution. They're just something there that every time you saw Austin in person you were impressed and it was a memorable memorable moment without a question so he steve just we did what we could do with him. The thing about him not being able to wrestle. They're the the real deal was he's not he wasn't able to take bumps right at that point in time but it could deliver a sternum 'cause the stunner donner he he he he landed on his ass and he can control that pressure control the the impetus of it and people came the Steiner just like they did last meals on television so it was a daunting but the one thing that they love more than anything anything other than him drinking beer was starter and he could do both those things under his current medical situation he could drink beer and he custodes people and he can talk so it was we did the only thing that made sense that was within the confines of being safe for him and while all the while still entertaining the audience because they got to see what they wanted to see the September eighth observer would report the Mark Henry was headed to Calgary to train under Bret Hart and Leo Burke quote. WWF is trying one last prayer. We'll see if they'll ever get anything out of their multi-million. Guarantee contract that gave Henry before the Olympics is to send them north well. I think that I was involved in that and I think there are others in the administration that revolved Vince signed off on it. I WANNA say if I'm not mistaken. Mistaken Conrad that bread hard had had ample amounts to do with this decision because Brett was have been trained by a a- At certain points had had influenced Leo Burke and Leo is a Canadian wrestler very sound fundamentally a a lotta respect from the guys because there's ability to coach and teach and refined ones game and remark needed essentially some one on one tutoring and coaching them up mark was always very good at being coached more often than not once once he got a little bit of seasoning and once he got some experience within the locker room and he was he was very coach. -Able marks also smart guy. He knew that you know some were running out of patience worth in the Administrative Vincent. Are Those guys I here's the thing man you get a four hundred pound guy that could dunk a basketball this this this regarded as legitimately the strongest men in the world. All I just believe the Oh promoters deal that you've got to tie everything humanly possible to get him up to speed so he can contribute. That's the potential at least that's what I thought was with frustrated at. You know he's lack of progression he just wasn't he. He wasn't developing as quickly as we had hoped he was not he was the smooth and you know it wasn't a tight fit for him as far as the tightness of his match sometimes the mark trying to do too much and we didn't need him to do those things he just needs to be the strongest man in the world and use strength as as as ticket to get into the dance dance and then continue to evolve what she did so I'm glad that we didn't we didn't wash her hands of mark and that we didn't release and the multi million dollar deal. I guess it isn't multi may is making about two hundred grand a year Salaam that ten years two million but it was like he got paid you know nfl money he's got good money Conrad but the money he was getting paid aid was not he's made about four grand a week something like that so what kill them the house it wouldn't kill them and make man's retirement plan obviously so maybe that's delivered over spoken..
"san antone tone" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"And from right here as we're humble host on the show it is wednesday today. Happy hump day august seven two thousand and nine thousand nine and we're back back in the normal ocho command center back in the alamo city countdown city san antone tone. Remember the alamo never forget and back door normal schedule. We didn't have episodes on monday or tuesday. I was filling in on e._s._p._n. San antonio is the blitz and with those being you know the first two days back. Things were kind of crazy. The cowboys were off monday so it kind of worked out well so it is wednesday and hope your day a has been going well so far wednesday mill the week baby making our way towards the weekend and we have a lot to discuss when it comes to the dallas cowboys specifically with regards to zucca elliott i think because that's kind of the subject that's got everybody on edge so far and again. This is wednesday august seventh so this is obviously a fluid situation so far zeke elliott has not reported to dallas cowboys training camp and hey i mean what can you do about that. What can you you say you know. There was the anderson report from e._s._p._n. On tuesday zeke was prepared potentially to miss time and the regular season and this kind of set everybody ablaze twitter was on fire after this and i asked why i mean because he's holding out right we've known that he's holding out for almost two weeks now and and so the news that he would be prepared to miss time in the regular season is in fact news. I mean like how is that. How is that new information. You know we we knew that he's obviously that's literally what he's doing right now and so the whole august sixth thing was kinda put to bed and to kind of explain explain that we wrote about this it'd be t._b. But so ziv to not report by august sixth and everybody talked about how he had to report by august sixth in order to gain an accrued season <hes> <hes> if you want to get to eventual free agency now the thing about zeke is he's on a rookie contract with the fifth year option that has already been exercised so the twenty twenty season will in fact saxby his fourth accrued season so he'll still hit free agency in two thousand twenty one. If that's ultimately what happens you know that's assuming no contract extension but now zeke elliott has to report next year so you know his cards are on the table if you will but their cards that don't have to be played for a year so oh z. could take this through the regular season if he wanted to. I mean that's that's a real possibility and i've mentioned this before. This is a non zeke point but the cowboys have to win their first three games okay and i don't you know if they are two in one. I'm not going to freak out or anything but if this team you know wants to win a super bowl and there's obviously suitable the expectations. We've heard a lot of players in a lot of people associated with the team say that that's the kind of thing they wanna do this season. They have to be three because their schedule gets really tough. The second half off basically from the game in new england which is the sunday before thanksgiving from that point on..
