Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel
"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were

"Sportswriter Sports are not only is Tom Haver thrown one of the best MBA writers in the country he may have. The best. Podcast name of any podcast. His last name is obviously have Stroh and he has the Havers show podcast as a guy would write of the news anymore. Radio show. I like puns. I like to remember Stroh and he joins us now on the Jim Rome show. Hello, Mr Haver Show. How are you doing, buddy? I'm doing Well, Mr Writer. I, uh I regret to inform people that that's not the only pun on my name. I've got habits stat, which video that I do every week for NBC sports, and I also had a The recipe for this Brazilian sausage grilled sausage that I posted on count the things which is our podcast Network. I posted a video of me making sausage out on the on my Weber Grill. And I named it the Haverstraw sausage. That stretch. I like it. That son I'm I regret to inform people that it's not just the Haver show. There's there's multiple multiple bad puns on my last night, and I just heard something else. I'm impressed by your old school charcoal guy. None of this gas that I gave into when I moved back to l A. You're like You're battling the Coles. You're doing it for real. Yeah, I just feel like in my pampered life of sitting in at my desk with my computer and ah, you know, just sitting in a cubicle essentially all day. Probably good to touch base with our caveman instincts. Every once in a while, unless I think well, it will lose ourselves as human beings. So that's my That's my intent to Ah, to grow a little bit more hair on my chest is I do the charcoal grill in the spirit of your grilling. Let's bring the fire before we get to the analytics. Would you like to Chris Paul? Would you like to guess who you would nominate is the most likely person. To utilize the NBA snitch line in Orlando. You know, you mentioned Chris Paul, the guy that I went to college with at Wake Forest, and so I'm trying to stick up for my fellow demon Deacon here. Every MBA players snitches during an MBA game. You look at a guy who steps on the sidelines and the referees don't see it would've radio opposing teams you know, points down at the sideline and yells at the referees or At the end of a game. If teams feel like the referee's botched a bunch of calls, they'll appeal that game or appeal certain plays. And send it into the league for review. This happens all the time. The idea that an N ba t with With Corona virus. Raging around the bubble thie idea that championship legacies are on the line abroad, Johannes Kodai Leonard coming off a championship himself. The idea that this Mitch line would just be sitting there collecting dust. Sanity to me. Obviously, people are gonna be calling that hotline because if there's any way to say Not only did this player screw up the rules He could have exposed his teammates to the Corona virus. And therefore he's going to be out for the next two plus weeks. And so it's not just Hey, you should make the next game has big consequences when you're dealing with such a sensitive ah, and high tension scenario that we're seeing in the bubble, so I don't know who is snitching and I'm surprised it's happening this early because there's no games that are happening right now, but rest assured. Bill When the game starts happening. This hotline is going to be big time. Harris roll. What would you put the over under number at off off false snitch line accusation against LeBron James I against LeBron. That's That's body. I You know what When you watch these videos on Have you seen the Twitter feed? Nb a bubble life? Yeah, Yeah, it's it's amazing content. When you see these videos like the first day if you notice First day in Orlando. It seemed like all the players going out on the boat were wearing masks. It took like two days before people were like, Hey, I'm not going to wear that any more out of the boat, and it's very rare that you see, you know, players outside on the boats, fishing and having a great time. You know it. It's becoming more and more normal for them to just not wear a mask and like, I don't know that is the complaint or whether it's more like that. Bruno Kabaa Chlo. Rashaun homes, two players that aren't household names, but two players in the MBA were subject to a 10 day quarantine force because they broke the bubble, so to speak during their initial quarantine. You know whether they've got a delivery or they You know, went outside when they weren't supposed to be empty, is taking this very seriously and like I said earlier. If you violate the protocols. It's not like you get a fine you're out of the game for for up to 10 days. So like when LeBron James if I'm LeBron James or people around LeBron James, I am making sure He's following everything to a T because you know everyone is going to be watching him and making sure he doesn't get any You know, exemptions or any sort of perks of being in the bubble and being LeBron James. I mean, I would imagine people are gonna be watching the honest On LeBron and Kawai. Extra extra clothes going forward Tom Harris, or I'm gonna put it. 7.5 and 5.5 of them Come from your former demon Deacons. Greaseball, false his guy. Yeah, I don't know, man. How much of their guys up between the lines? I mean that another bloody won't. If they're playing, If Okay, is playing the Lakers. I'd imagine the likelihood is much higher. And look. These guys are buddies outside the lines, but inside the line You know, Chris Paul hasn't even been to the MBA finals in his MBA career. So like there's a lot on the line for him, too, and when you get to this when you get to the conference finals And teams are going to be extra careful about their activities. I'd imagine this is going to be super super intense, and I don't know if the embassy can act on any of these hotline calls, but At this point, it's low stakes. Talk to me in, like a few weeks when the game's actually start happening? Yeah. Tom Haver stroke here on the Jim Rome Show Bill writer filling in Tom, you are and I said this part of the show, not just one of the best MBA writers in the country, but you look at things you do deep data dives. And look at things from a very analytical perspective. I'm really curious your take here. We're gonna have neutral courts. Right? So your filly and you were 29 into at home. If you're a team like Dallas, that was really good on the road. To what extent do you think? You can look at road or home records and know something about how that's going to translate to what goes on in Orlando. Great question. I think the 76 years are one of the biggest Bennett benefactors of this bubble, and I'll tell you why. Right now, in the standing, they would not have home court advantage. Get in there first round opponent against a Boston Celtics. Boston Celtics have a great home court advantage. More importantly, the Sixers have a horrible road dissidents. In fact, the swing between the home court win percentage for the 70 Sixers and the road win percentage. Is the largest swing. Since the MBA merger for any team in the MBA, the largest Homeaway split. Is this year 70 Sixers so going into the going into the playoffs as an underdog in a series, they would have not only to go and play in Boston for the 1st 2 games. They also have, you know, Game seven on the road, so there will be at a huge disadvantage. But in this scenario, they're going to be at a big advantage. I think even out for all teams, but more so for the 76 is because they were gonna have No home court advantage there now it gets split. The other thing I'll point out is This shutdown benefits them on another level. Because Ben Simmons with dealing with a really bad back injury, and now because of the big break their healthy again, and that is another big benefit for the 70 Sixers that if they started the season Right where they left off back in March. Without a big delay. Things would be very different for Billy. And in fact, brothers listeners at home who are you know, looking to put the money on a team..
What is the best case scenario for the 2020 baseball season?
"You know not only can we not go out and go to the casinos the bars the restaurants there's no sports to watch on TV we got no Major League Baseball for starters and that's very sad in the guy joining us on the line right now what a great journalist has been around for a long time really does a fantastic job as a sportswriter for USA today his name is Bob Nightengale very large following and you joining us right now Bob thank you so much for being with us are you thanks a lot bye sure Sir my pleasure thank you guys appreciate about okay so let's start with this can you give us the latest because we've been hearing from some players and even writing about this and the rumblings about you know thanksgiving and and these dates keep moving because there's so many unanswered questions as you know so what's the latest you can give us at the hopeful the dates of when we might see Major League Baseball what are most optimistic viewpoint is June warned that does not happen but that that's our best case scenario I'd be more realistic way either hopeful of July first July fourth weekend that sort of thing yeah they're willing to play games regular season games in in October probably more mid October and then you can have a whole month of playoffs I think it expand the postseason format in the end you know play all the way up to think skip thanksgiving weekend your stock but they're so pretty much it you know and an extra three three weeks of the season and of the of the four major sports Major League Baseball players have been pretty outspoken about the fact that they are fine with playing with no fans in the stadium due to youth they think that that's going to take place additionally upon opening I think it will be leave some places for sure he's gonna think what baseball person once spoken about that it's just that because I've got paid yet you know NBA NHL I'd have got most your paycheck you guys haven't got a penny those are get paid you know because of security contracts would get paid five thousand Bucks a day for two months beginning on April third but that's it and so I think these guys are standing up we'll do what it takes in a lease at the games I play with are no fans of the TV money kicks in that's a big thing anyway the owners get their money and that and the players will get the money
Author Michael Murphy on 'Golf in the Kingdom'
"This is Alan ship. I am delighted to be joined by Michael Murphy author of Golf in the Kingdom still going strong eighty nine Michael. Thank you for doing this well. It's a pleasure. You have such a unique place in the game Euro Golfing Kindo as in your early forties. I'M NOT GONNA say it was a Lark but it was a you're not you're not a Gulf writer. You're not a novelist it just emerged from you in ever. Since you've been this Oracle you've been this grand old man of letters in the game you you tell shape how think about it. So are you still tickled that all these years later people are still finding this novel enjoying it? Well I I love it. I could say channel that because it was not only the first book I wrote the First Book I never tried to ride and I started it as I was turning forty and it was published in one thousand nine hundred ninety two forty seven years ago so when I was forty one so here we are now forty eight years later and it has. His Life Taught Me. I could ride so that in itself was an enormous pleasure and a big force to shape by subsequent life. I never thought of myself as a writer. My brother Was the designated writer in our family might and he had been a successful novelist and my grandfather had delivered John. Steinbeck and Salinas or you and I were both born and You know rules can get us. Signed the kids growing up and I was supposed to be a doctor and Than the more for me Thought I'd be a psychiatrist. And then got to Stanford and found myself in class on comparative religions of that led me to the philosophy and the way of life that shaped me ever since when I was nineteen and twenty but never along the way there was thought. Start writing books so anyway. When I sat down to write this book really did come in a flood. And it's Been living in me ever since I've written eight books now but that one If it were to be one of my children Children it would be among my books. It was my first child by far the most successful and I would say influential. Books are mysterious things. I like to say sometimes. Ufo's identified writing objects you W os or you are os. Son identified reading objects that can open worlds to people. And that's what's actually happened with this book with golf in the Kingdom one of the things about our shared hometown of Salinas which is just a dusty little farming community in the Central Valley known to John. Steinbeck doesn't have that much else to recommend it. It's not that far from pebble. Beach Golf links which figures prominently in my life story and and was important part of Gulf education. So tell us about your early days of playing pebble with with your brother and of course guys would haunt the Cosby Klanbake back. When he was really a big deal with Hogan snead Nelson and Bing crosby's the star in the world so is important from Stamford but it starts with your golf education before that while. That's right I mean we've had very fortunate childhoods you and I and my brother and Yes we would there be there at the crosby so I get to follow Ben Hogan around and watched him up close and personal before and after his accident. Which was in I guess January of Nineteen forty-nine so he missed that whole year in the hospital but he used to partner with Bing crosby and that was fun and Johnny Weissmuller who was the Great Olympic champion of became Tarzan. And the movies anyway. It was those great events and of course plane pebble which to this day remains by far my favorite course and it has to be. I mean there's of course in the world I think more beautiful than pebble. There are others that when you look at them would be beautiful. But to match the incredible range of moods it gets into with the shifting light the shifting fog the filaments of fog that cut across the fairways and all but anyway quyen pebble seen Some of the players in particular Hogan up close definitely was an influence on on golfing. The King wrote about it will hoge himself makes a handful of cameos in the text. Including what was it? The moved you so much about him well his magnetism on the course then he won eight out of eleven majors. He played over that period from forty eight to fifty through fifty three and he After the accident he paid just eighteen tournaments through fifty-three thickening one ten of them. He won virtually every major so he was the top of the game. He was to golf then way. Tiger Woods has been also the quality of his presence and when he would crack this out Just by the second hole at pebble for those who have been developed. Now it's then built up but there was a big field of practice in the pros as well as the onlookers. Got To sit down and watch him. Maybe there'd be hundred. Fifty people big big arena there watching him practice and it was a sight to behold because he had an immense repertoire of shots to fade to draw low high and the silence and that meant a huge impression on me and. I'm sure that as I sat down to write though I didn't plot the book or shape the book deliberately around him that influence. I'm sure was like an acorn growing into this conscious. Us of what the game could be as a kind of If you WANNA call it Yogi you can call it contemporary. You can call Chamonix even exercise golf itself is what in the eastern martial arts. Would you could call a Kata which is a series of movements. That trigger it is said are esoteric anatomy that is the complete person we are both in the flesh and in our soul are in the consciousness itself and golf swing. You could argue is an unnatural. Act It's not like running or throwing which are species learn to do and could do To survive. But you don't take a tee up a ball and hit it at the on charging tiger you know as a member of the tribe so it's an acquired skill that requires the most gypsum concentration and commitment to play it. Well and for this reason he and other reasons it evokes corresponding states of mind which can be interfered with with strong emotions whether rage or grief or sorrow which can produce by this fiendish challenge to get this small ball into this tiny hole and to go after four five hours over the course of four miles. You know. It's on the face of an absurdity. A why are we doing this? And that can occur to while playing. Why am I doing this but you do it? And you have these incredible pleasures and experiences and then as I've discovered through Responding to the book experience you have to call super-normal Mr Cool or cold. In other words the game can do that and It helps to be in a beautiful place like Pebble Beach. The you bring to this conversation. Just leaps off the page. I mean that's I think why the book is in bird because as you say it's this pursuit of ours is is maddening. It makes no sense but we do it anyway. And we were able to put a voice to having a correspondent. Brad faxon about the book and he said what I love about it is it made it okay to to speak of these things and you gave us in vocabulary to this experience at the golfers of had. But I you can get those tools so you matriculate to Stanford and as a fellow Salinas Person. I know it's not the most open minded place to Nag towns little conservative. But you have sort of a life altering experience stafford and what exactly happened well. I was so inspired by this professor. Frederic Spiegelberg he them a born and raised in Germany and Taught was teaching Stanford Comparative Religions so I got exposed to eastern philosophy and meditation contemplation than and particularly the world view of Indian philosopher. A named Sheera window who had been educated in England very elite education. His family had instructed his patrons in England never to let him speak any Indian language so he wanted to English but he was a philosopher and writer kind of a renaissance figure and developed a worldview. That's been the most basic influence on me. There are many influences of prompted me to do what I've done and of course the mystery is. Why chose this story? I could have gotten so many other directions but I consider myself very lucky. A Norman Mailer. The writer argued that every aspiring writer is given one free one by God and that was my free one and it was the first one and it in turn golf in the kingdom has shown me that this birth of new capacities is much more common than most people realize because immediately upon publication people started letting me know about their mystical experiences called experiences on golf courses. I wrote the book on some inspiration but I if you had asked me then that people would be having experiences you know immediately lawyer. New York wrote to me and was just couldn't get over this book. It helped him understand that. How on this particular occasion he'd been standing on the T. of four hundred yard and there were no players between him and his forces have been the green said he could see clear. A ball marker the size of a dime on this whole quarter of a mile away. Two of his playing partner couldn't even see the green. I got it was there. So he wondered. Is this the sort of thing you're talking about or a woman rights to me right away and says the yearbook helped me in? Because not long ago I was playing the eighteenth hole of at my Country Club as the sun was setting and when we got to the green the sun had set but it was still shining through the green and I felt that maybe this was some after glow on my is some retinal shock or something but when they went into the clubhouse who shining through the walls and it shown like that for three days and I was in an exaltation and thank you for writing the book because I found author who bite understand this experience so when you then I started getting these things. It pushed me in the direction of seeing the genius of sport to elicit this experience but not reported by sportswriters very often. You know there've been a few writers who have glimpsed this John Updike. He recognized this and Bernard Darwin. You know the great writer grandson. Charles Darwin he read the links of either down one of his short stories. I mean he certainly could see it. The mystery of golf by Arnold Hall Taint. So there's been a vein of golf writing that shows this power of the game not only to enchant but to reveal these capacities so that in turn has led me into other sports. And so I've been out to meet with coaches and players of ever since about what you would call the inner game of Sport and that Inter has led me to appreciate how prevalent it is in everyday life but not commonly discussed and recognized until recently. Thank you God for giving me go for the Kingdom as my first book.

At the Races With Nick Tammaro
"Churchill getting started would bind with they're the first really too big weekends they also course got the international later in the meet later in the fall and and that brings in some international shippers this woodbine mile just the mile either northern dancer the more you look at it. I thought was was was intriguing and there's plenty of other a lot of stars on the card including Holy Khaleda and pink Loyd. WHO's I I for a horse? That's one like twenty seven in a row. Nobody seems the talk about him or pay much attention to him. Bob Tillers streaking sprinter and here's a streaking sprinter victim Rio depends on where the sprint destination is. I think might Tapei at times but shop racing form a yes to the windows. Definitely Pink Floyd is is really sort of a marvel in terms of how he's performed well routinely I of course needed him to at least be third in this race last year in the contest and finished fifth so the pink floyd stop it will be nowhere near Wreck Stale Ontario and so his chances tomorrow we'll probably increase exponentially. He's in the early. They put the bold venture early on the card actually in fact when I went to the stakes together and put them up Derby Trail Oh. I didn't even look that that early on the card so I didn't even have to go back in fact I don't know if I did go back and put it up but there are a couple couple of very nice horses here including Carlin's honor the Jack Oxley Breezy York good old Yordan approaching half a million dollars for a chiefs would and Stewart Simon you know a lot of your a lot of your local players in the sprint scene but pink Cloyd is now twenty one twenty six and it really was late last year September October that he started to show some some frings signs of tiring and Kinda sputtered out at the end of the year could. Could he be beaten in here. I don't think so no it looks like he's he's back where he needs to be and I don't really know I guess other than Caroline's honor who's supposed to be particularly big threat to him in the spot so he he should get the job done. I mean it's always nice to see good. Horses do Well York than obviously was in much better form coming into this last year having run a good second pink Floyd Royd individual and and that was also during a period of time where pink floyd was having a really hard time getting out of the gate so he's a little ornery for a seven year old gelding and he had a little bit gate trouble really about four or five races in a row going into last year's bold venture he he's not he still not they really particularly the obedient or when it comes to getting out of the gate or being trained for it but he's definitely a little bit better spot with that right now so I think given that he's he's inform and should be sitting right off of the of the pace. If you worked in may be line to the front end. I think he should be okay before we talk about the Canadian the end the grade to which does start the cross country and will incorporate the pebbles and the nightcap at Belmont Nixon thoughts about last week at Belmont. We talked about this Jockey Club Derby and oaks and the Grand Prix. I talked to Andy on Tuesday. The Grand Prix was oddly contest than I thought but some some quick hits on opening the opening salvos at Belmont. I guess guess I'll try and keep it as charitable as possible. Given I took my shots at it last week but I think they played out largely. How we expected decide thought was a pretty impressive winner of the Jockey Club oaks overcoming? I think by all counsel was a pretty negative pace setup and winning is much the best running down Wonderman who I thought probably got a little bit more the run of the race and the American contingent as we expected in that race as well as the Jockey Club Derby were pretty much no shows and it could also be that the American continuing is pretty thin out by now. We'll talk about the pebbles and a little bit but the pebbles is going to be the ninth race for one hundred thousand dollars or more for three year olds fillies on turf going back to June sixth six and that's insane so the ranks of American horses that are ready to go a mile and three eighths early in September. We're really not very not very robust and and that proved out on the lady side and I thought Spanish mission I I actually thought he was totally out of position and thought that he was about to have a Jamie Spencer Special before he was able to overcome it and get the job done so a little bit. I know that the horse was capable of overcoming his writer. I I would imagine he he should be one of the better distant sources that we could potentially see over here next year given that he's going to be off now until the spring and there's just obviously connections that have problems shipping over the Grand Prix North American Jockey Club invitational brought to you by whatever most pretentious name of all time that was one of the most oddly run races I've ever seen first of all. I don't know how the hell everybody knew. Marconi was winning that race for fun and then to watch the riders of both realm and roaming union gather a hold of their horses so strongly almost as if they were waiting for Marconi to catch up and take the lead after he blew the break so that he could go one sixteen flat it was basically sort of the epitome of what we complain about left and right about American American dirt racing right now and you know in this day and age of sort of turf occasion of American racing where everybody points to turf races races are run like turf races. It's almost as if one horse makes the lead all the other guys say okay well. They're the pacesetter we're just GONNA go ahead and sit back and wait for them to come back to us and the majority of the time on the dirt that just doesn't happen even so shockingly Marconi was able to set a pedestrian pace and and went on with it and I I obviously would not have been a big fan of his at the price he went off often. We talked about how it looked like a bit more competitive race on paper the other todd pletcher trainee your to blame. I thought ran pretty well. He was able to stop the pace on the inside but you know I don't y horse like roaming union was in there if he wasn't GonNa GonNa contest the pace especially given that he's from connections like Michelle Navin who generally have a pretty decent idea how to win dirt racist so that was is a little bit of a head scratcher. you know look my personal opinion is that if there's any thought given to this turf triple. I really hope that same amount of money is committed to a dirt program and trying trying to incentivize horsemen to get there and run on dirt more frequently really try and build up the claiming ranks again because it's kind of embarrassing through the first three days of racing. I'm I'm sorry through the first three days of Racing Belmont there were seventy eight horses total entered to run on dirt and there are over seventy eight horses enter to run dirt in the first day at Churchill so I if the same number number of races and and that's that's not good. That's a big big problem that creates a big problem in the winter so that's my hope for it as it is. I guess we'll see probably a little bit better from Spanish mission in the Diese Lisa next year well we turn to Belmont today and into the weekend a couple of very good maiden races actually as part of that card and maybe we'll touch on them but let's let's look at the cross country pick five and it is comprised of of the three three of the stakes would bind the Canadian the mile and the northern dancer that you know you the top of your head. You wouldn't have thought it the three of them were as complex as actually I think they are and then the pebbles and the turf sprint claiming nightcap the eleventh at Belmont so let's start with the Canadian you know this is an interesting field the and really they'll competition. Idea should probably go off a pretty solid favorite. I don't really see how tactically you could make a real stand with her and she's a horseshoe. Obviously needs to lay back and make one run and you know those types generally at the mercy of the pace and this race does not look like it's going to have really any pace speak of so so she's going to have to overcome that now. I will say that you'll Rosario getting back on board to me feels like a very good thing. It does seem like she's just a little bit better horse when he's John Her but now the flip side of that is that we know Joel style. He's GonNa take her back and let her make one run so I mean they're they're going to. There's going to have to be some pace in here that you can't really foresee and I guess the hope is that Dixie moon and or starship do believe maybe show a little bit more speed than they have before. That's if you're back competition of ideas with any great fervor because obviously what this is shaping up as a situation where Holy Helena has a big tactical advantage on the other favorite and and she's been effective at Woodbine in the past. You look good winning the dance smartly last time Jimmy was giving a little bit of time since and I think she's a horse that that will really get the run of the race and and that's GonNa make her toffee. This could be a situation where on your your pick five. You're really leaning on those two pretty heavily and maybe you could give a little bit of a nod holy Helena on one one more additional ticket. I did want to try and make a case for to Riga and my hope is the Tyler Galileo. Maybe a little bit more aggressive with her than Johnny. Velazquez was was last time he finished just length and a half behind the competition of ideas did get into a little bit of trouble amazingly. She got into trouble in the three-horse rates which it happens of course and with a little bit cleaner run maybe second off the off the layoff off the ship in we can see some improvement grim oceans been a little the little laid back with her she she ran on July twentieth didn't work until August thirty first but might be one of those horses that can stay fit without doing that. I I'm always very very in tune and was looking at his horses in these kind of scenarios as they they generally overperform relative to their odds so I'm GonNa go ahead and include Theresa's well the and will include could starship jubilee more than likely those two has backups because I think they each offers some appeal at what should be better prices than the two chalks should note that ah Jimmy Jerkins after sending Holy Elena opt for the dance smartly basically is as left her there and oh my Gosh the stronach trainer but my Woodbine what is yes thank you Mike Doyle. Mike Doyle has been handling and Jimmy is on TV with seth deny after after precision is one and he told the story about Jimmy said he got the notification is it is stable mail all that Holy Helena had worked Labor Day weekend and so gets the notice he opens it up and Airy Jerry Sees Holy Elena six longs one eleven and three Jimmy said got on the phone to this is Mike what's going on up there and he said I really don't worry though or she did it easy. Did it easy the track was the polly was slick. It was cold or whatever yeah what eleven at three and you know what I did. I brought up with Jimmy that great story that is his father told about Bo purple and going out to Hawthorn for the Hawthorne Gold Cup on Tuesday the race as was Saturday and on Tuesday he gets a call from a Chicago sportswriter and said Jerkins. I wanted to ask you for comment about outvote purples work and said what about it. He says well he he he went a mile in one thirty. Two and three Korea broke the track record or mile. I think he went to violent at eight and broke the track record. What what forty seven forty six shades or something and and and Jerkin said you know? I'm sure he'll be fine and sure enough. He went out and won the Gold Cup but that was funny. One one eleven and three
ESPN's 'Qualified' Highlights Boundary-Breaking Race Car Driver Janet Guthrie
"Return our attention to the world of motor sports, which has the rare distinction as being one of the sports where men and women are sensually on a level playing field in that body strength and physical speed take a back seat to focus precision and skill and yet women have struggled to break through at the highest levels of motor sports. That is the topic of the latest thirty for thirty film. It's called qualified. It used to be and women can't do it. They don't have the strength. They don't have the endurance. They're gonna endanger lives. You don't hear that anymore. What you do. Here is they're never gonna win. Then believe me if I didn't think I could win I would quit. But I do think I can win for four year stretch starting in nineteen seventy seven Janet Guthrie attempted to accomplish where women had never done qualify for and win the world's most famous race. The Indianapolis five hundred unsurprisingly she faced a ton of resistance, we'll five or six other rookies year. And she gets all attention, and they don't get nothing. Do you think she'll be able to last six hundred mile? No. No. What was surprising to the establishment was how good of a research at Guthrie actually what's despite inferior equipment funding that paled in comparison to some of the other teams and open hostility from her male competitors. Guthrie not only qualified, but earned a top ten finish in nineteen seventy within two years. She finished ahead. Mario andretti. The lady can literally with one hand tied behind her back with them in. On today's episode. Look at Janet Guthrie struggles her achievements her determination and how her career suddenly stalled out the director of qualified generic, and her producer, Carolina Waterlo will join me in a moment. But first, it is my pleasure. To say Hello to the legend herself Janet Guthrie, welcome to the thirty for thirty podcasts. And congratulations on this film will thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. So I want to get into the film when your career, but I was wondering if you could just describe what it's like to drive an IndyCar. Well, there's nothing that I know of that require is such focus without a lapse for such a long time, because you can't afford to make small mistakes, because small mistakes have shot at turning into unseemly mishaps. You're trying to beat the next guy end of the corner, but you're not going to put him in the wall. In order to do it. Hang on. John is still doing quite well second, Indianapolis five hundred AJ just one place in front of. Treaded guthrie. So it's a very interesting combination of competition. And yet, you're responsible for the well being of the person you're competing against. I don't know anything like it really. Anything can happen. One of the things I learned from the film that you grew up. You learn how to fly you parachuted. But in your answer, just then you didn't say anything along the lines of. Well, I am a thrill seeker. And I really liked going fast or something like that. I mean so where does that fit into to the appeal? Well, I guess I was born at venturous and grew up in sufficiently socialized of flying was great fun. What of the elements is that this wonderful machinery, the airplanes the race carries in able women to compete right out there, the level of human ability, because the broad shoulders and big muscles, don't count. That's part of the appeal finding out what it's like out there the limits of human capability, so this may be naive question. But why was it so hard to make that case throughout the seventies that this isn't about physical broad shoulders in the way that you just described this is about folk? This and all the things that aren't sort of inherently different between men and women. Oh, mythology. I'm afraid actually I had been racing sports car is for women had always participated. I'd been doing that kind of thing for thirteen years. And I could count the problems on the fingers of one hand that had anything to do with my being a woman, it just really wasn't an issue. So to come in to the top levels of racing and this country IndyCar racing and NASCAR Cup racing. And discover the not everybody thought that way was a quite as apprise actually when you were trying to break in. Did you get a sense that there was sort of actual misogyny at place, or was it more just like we have an old boys club here? We like our little network, and now trying to crash the party. Well, unfortunately, what was being said, was along. The lines of women did have strength women don't have the endurance. Women don't. Ev the emotional stability, Iman are going to endanger our lives times. It made made a mad mostly. I could laugh at it because I figured they would learn better and indeed, for the most part that did happen when you first started breaking in, and particularly when you got to Indy cars, your first few races, it felt like not just all eyes on you, but also testing you, you know what I mean? People were pretty explicit about this is your one chance. And if you screw it up, then you're not going to get a second chance. Well, I knew if a screwed up that it would be a long time. If for a woman got another chance. Yes. I did have to be a little extra cautious those first few races. So that not only did I give the fast or. Cars in a room. I gave them so much room that there wasn't going to be a doubt in their mind. And then as time went on, of course, I could home in on that a little more. But you look for hence. Coming up on the smart car. Chris allowed to make any mistakes day with lower Parador faster cars. Yeah. Given them all over the world. You bet. We'll hear lots more from Janika three in a bit. But now let's talk to the people who had to craft her story qualified director, Jen Ricker, and producer Caroline Waterlo. Jenna started a conversation by talking about whether Janika through was a story that she knew about or whether she felt like she was really rescuing a story that had been lost to history. I didn't know who Johnny go through was myself. And I think what happened for me is in being introduced her story. I was a little ticked. I didn't know who she was. I was like the first woman. I don't know who the first one when you qualified for the Indianapolis five hundred this is insane. And I think it started like throwing down a rabbit hole of like how many more women don't I know about. And, and I think that became something very clear to us as we were learning more about her in culling research is that most people didn't know about her, and this is an overarching problem beyond the sport beyond her story is that every time we find out about a woman, it's still a novelty, and the more novelties the less progress, you can make. And if people can identify with somebody who's come before it looks like a pretty big mountain to scale to go after something. So it it didn't up having a big impact on us. The Juno about the story. I did not Jenna, read the book and. I was very excited about it. And she and I became friends through another mutual friend who is also a producer on the film Nina, Kristich, and Nina, and I had worked on the OJ made in America doc, together. She's a archival genius, and our other producer, Greg. So the four of us all kind of came together, and John had this incredible disease of an excitement for the story, and we all immediately agreed and sort of got on board to me, it was like seventies women race cars. Awesome. The need. There's no you look at a picture of her her suits with her car. And you just think I need to know everything about this. And so it was kind of a no brainer for me to want to produce it and try to talk. Yes. PIN into making it people who are listening to this podcast will have heard her and got of personality. I'm wondering if you can take a crack at describing Janet's personality to natio- single minded in pursuit of things, she's very inflammable. And so it's probably what maters such a great race car driver. Like, as we did this discovering. Like never seen it IndyCar race. Never seen a NASCAR race. And then gets in these cars and excels. And I think that's to or credit, you know she did jump from kinda crappy sports cars to the top level of the sport. And it's to your credit that it was like give me the machine. And I will make it excel. Yeah. And then the great joy of, of Janet as a character to is you go the next layer to her. And it's like oh, she jumped out of a plane when she was sixteen right? Oh, she's an aeronautical engineer. Oh, she built her own engine? You know, we talk about, you know, stem in education, outright, science technology, engineering math, you know, she is like the stem spokesperson of all time, and that's another all the areas that she excelled in are just these kind of have traditionally not been is that we hear about women. Do you think she was motivated by just? I'm really good at this and I want to do this or how much did she recognize the sort of trail-blazing nature of what she was doing? She. Was not trying to be the first she was not trying to make a huge feminist statement. She's like I'm just trying to drive my car and I am good at it, and I and I love it and I want to do it, so please, let me do it. But then she talks about in the film how over time as people point out to her, that she is this trailblazer. And she sorta realizes that it has become a role that she does feel some responsibility towards in terms of being this woman to blaze a trail. And so she she, she's a reluctant hero in that sense. I think that was one of the things certainly that drew me to her. I think that most trailblazers arrest people who do these things aren't consciously thinking, I'm going to carry this banner. It is because they're so focused on the thing. They believe they're meant to do that. Eventually, there's a wake behind them. I think for all women. It's always like you're, you're carrying all of them and had on your back. Like, what are you? I'm just trying to go shopping. You know, like it's always so weighted down. Down, and it's a big burden to carry that doesn't happen to men excelling it something or stepping out of the norm. They're not all of a sudden given us albatross, the failure. Yes. So high. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I thought that came through really strongly in the film and continues to this day. But just this notion that certain people have much shorter leashes than others. Certain people I shouldn't mince words like white men, get much longer leash than others. You have to be perfect if you're going to try and be I. Yeah. Or even eat. Yeah. Even get the shot. It's, it's. But there were there were explicit. I mean it was explicit in that moment. I mean, they're you know, I'm trying to remember the particular quote. But there were, there were race officials basically saying this is your chance to prove a new only get one. Yeah. Right. You have to raise Trenton before let you even set, you know, step on the track at Indy that was very much like, you know, someone's going to get killed with this woman on the track. I mean now I mean it's about as high stakes as you could imagine for her going improve herself. I mean people were very concerned about it. There's times when it's like how this is an old boys club, and people are being just sorta, like joke fraternal about it. But then there's times when, like some of the signs that were out there and some of the language of use was like, and had, like, really scary. Grandstands behind his. It was always see the people agitate ner say rude things the save. Nice has get the tips out of the pets here come to young guys seem I say, hi Janet, you got to qualify said, I hope so. He said, well, we don't we hope you crash on our corner. I didn't really have a thick skin. If that's what it took to get a shot at the Indianapolis five hundred I would deal with it. That's all. Couple years before Janet arrives on the scene. Women aren't even allowed in the pit area. And so these female sportswriters sued the track to get access. And I was reading one of the articles about it, and there's drivers saying if I see one on the track and went around the bitch over. I mean this is what they're saying. And this is just somebody asking to do your job and be reporter. It was sort of shocking, and then not shocking. In nineteen seventy eight Gordon Johncock an Indy champion. He shook the car down when he came back. He got out of the Carney, through his helmet. He was furious. And he realized that

Warriors can learn from Showtime Lakers after Durant-Green meltdown
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Warriors can learn from Showtime Lakers after Durant green meltdown by Scott Osler opportunity knocks before Monday nights courtside meltdown between Draymond green. And Kevin Durant. The warriors were on their way to making history by winning their fourth NBA title in five years, maybe on their way to a couple more titles after that big stuff. They figured to go down in history as phenomenal team with an asterisk so much talent that it was impossible to lose. Now, the warriors can wipe out the asterisk and stamp themselves. As a team that transcends its greatness and teaches the world lessons in character, toughness and brotherhood. If the warriors managed to survive this crisis and win another title, and maybe keep the band together going into next season. Even the doubters and haters will be forced to admit men. This is a team it won't be. Easy. This one goes deep. The case can be made that the warriors were born as championship team in their preseason finale in twenty four teen when power forward David Lee pulled a hamstring. Green was moved into the starting lineup and the warriors won twenty one of their first twenty three games. And haven't looked back does the dynasty now. Die with green. Well, that's up to him to Durant and their teammates one thing that might help. Stop throwing around the cliche that the warriors are like a family and every family has squabbles. Most families Aren composed of multimillionaires from vastly different backgrounds. Superstars, all whose performances and personal lives are inspected and critiqued on a daily basis by millions. If the warriors are a family there the Kardashians. Except that the Kardashians are forced to get along. They have no other options. What is going to leave the show and do summer stock? The warriors. In trying to hold things together and rise above the mess. They've created might wanna give Magic Johnson or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar call back in the eighties. Those to lead the Showtime Lakers to five NBA titles and three other trips to the finals, and I kind of image is the ecstatic Johnson bear hugging Obdulio Jabbar moments after they won their first NBA game together in nineteen seventy nine to the outside world. That's how the Lakers wore for a decade. Conjoined quintuplets fused at the heart. But those two main men magic and Kareem were not tight. It would be hard to find two personalities more destined for conflict. Everybody could see that. We weren't favored POWs or buddies the first three or four years Johnson told sportswriter Steve Springer in me when we co wrote a book about those days magic and the other players tiptoed around Abdul Jabbar, the Mikhael center big fella as they called him soaked public. Weekly. When Johnson got fat new contract. Johnson privately longed for the day when Obdulio jabbar's retirement would allow him to unleash his full array of offensive talents throwing elements of sex drugs and rock and roll a legion doubters and haters and a complex cast of teammates all unfolding onto the spotlight of Hollywood and the birth of the new NBA, and it's a wonder Showtime held together for ten minutes. Let alone ten years in retrospect, it looked so smooth but old fans. Remember, how Johnson became the first athlete ever to fire his head coach and how the front office dynamited team chemistry by trading a beloved all-star, nor Nixon and how the players nearly mutinied at what they perceived as the theatrical tyranny of head coach, Pat Riley, it would take volumes to explain how it worked. But for Johnson it all came down to his pet phrase that seemed as shallow as the LA river. But was as deep as the Pacific Ocean. It's winning time back then parsing out the relative blame in credit was impossible, and useless. Same now with the warriors where does green register on the one to ten guild scale six point five when is Durant going to get that huge warriors forever neck tattoo. We all know how warriors owner Joe lak- feels about the organization, but we're about to find out if this team is light years ahead of the rest of the NBA in unity and character or just another group of skilled squad lers in Steve Kerr, the warriors couldn't possibly have a better head coach to guide them through this turbulence if Dr Phil judge Judy and Jimmy Fallon somehow had a kid it would be Kerr. But this one is on the players. The warriors challenge might be even harder than the one faced by the stone-age Lakers back in the days before Twitter and podcasts, but the concept is the same. Same. It's winning time. There's the time clock warriors. Do you punch in or punch out?

"But Wall Street Journal sportswriter Jayson gay tongue-in-cheek asks that you allow him a moment to make a case for the Red Sox who themselves have not won a World Series in five whole years. He implores you to think of the children of England Jason how do you see it? Gordon? It's easy to look at the Los Angeles Dodgers in this World Series. They haven't won a World Series since nineteen eighty eight walk off of that hobble off Kirk Gibson home run. Can you believe that was three decades ago? So there's a lot of sentiment for the dodgers to finally win series. But let's not forget about the young people of Boston, Gordon. There are four year olds. They're three year olds two year old to never seen the Red Sox hoist the World Series trophy. And let's not forget about their anguish. I mean, that's the entire life or a four year old low Red Sox World Series. That's the stuff counselors are made of. Yeah. Yeah. No. I my heart goes out to the kids in all series as you point out too. I mean, some of these kids would you say the ages like fourteen east kids have seen titles in every major sport New England. They have indeed seen the title on every Mitch for New England impact. If you're I believe. Aping new seen something on the order of five patriots Super Bowls four Red Sox World Series now or you know, three titles topics title, Bruins, title and even gotten a C seventeen. So remarkable time to be alive. The the interesting thing too. I think you sort of hint at it calling. It a drought now for the Red Sox, but we get greedy. Right. I mean, you expect to win every year. I think so I think one thing that is very clear when you take a look at a club. Like, Los Angeles are Boston. I mean the payroll for both of these teams hover around two hundred million. You know, they're not having downcycle have certainly the television revenue on the stadium revenues enough to perpetuate. Yeah. Good clubs and find big free agents. And so you're not going to see the red Foxx really go through the kinds of drugs that they may have had in years, Pat or generations say with the dodgers, we're speaking with Wall Street Journal, sportswriter Jayson gay. You made the point that the this Red Sox team seems to get bounces calls lucky breaks things like that. What did you mean? Well, I just you know, full disclosure Massachusetts kid, I grew up in the bucket. Dent Bill Buckner era of Red Sox anguish, and I watch a team for which luck seems to go their way, the black cats across the other dugout, you know, things like credit Kimball. The Red Sox pitcher who just seems. So, you know, wildly inflicted need. Just seems to wiggle out of every bad situation. These are feeling that if you grew up with the county charities and the buck pairs and all that kind of stuff very sorta strange things to witness. Yeah. That's a very good point. I hadn't thought about it. I I didn't follow baseball all year long. But you made it seem like Kimbrell is just I don't know a giant question. Mark every time he takes the hill. Does that get really exposed in the postseason because the Red Sox are? Chopping through everybody right now. It has not so far. I mean Kimball has had a big wobbles against the New York Yankees divisional round big wobbles against Piatra buddies failed himself out each time. And I think it's almost become this cultural gathering prevent talks fancy sit there ringing there. And I imagine they're criteria. People turn up television of a volume at least from Kimball takes stressful. But again, it's not the kind of thing that has resulted in losing games and pass the strangest part of the whole thing that you get the roller coaster. But then you get to celebrate at the end. That's just not familiar turf for you know, an old school Red Sox fan. What's what's what's good for baseball for the dodgers to win it after thirty years or to give people a chance to talk about dynasty in Boston. Well, I think baseball's already one with this World Series. You're talking about two classic giant television markets. You know, teams have great passionate fan bases around the country. I think the ratings for will be good. I mean, it's not all about television ratings, but we can't ignore that sorta component of what sports are in the twentieth century. So I think you're going to have a good deal of interest in this thing. Thanks, Jason's Wall Street Journal, sportswriter Jayson gay.
