You know where I got a little twitchy. That I've run out when the Guy gets his leaf blower. Going I don't mind the leaf blower, but but not for the forty five straight minutes I was telling you okay. Unacceptable is going to get windy again, pal. and. If you're blown the leave Steve Okay. Here's the new rule. If you're leaf, you got a bag. Okay you got a bag. The leafs the leaves the leaves. You've got a bag steve. Okay, you can't just come up. You know if you're going to blow your lease. Okay, if you're a leaf blower, Stevie, okay, which you're not, but but if you were okay. So you're shoved him all of side of your yard or you're pushing them down on the front of the street or Generally off the driveway to either side. And then you leave him okay. There's a lot of going there. Steve Law to a lot of words leave, and then, and then the wind comes up a little bit stevie again the go back on the driveway. Okay! You know what I'm sayin' You got a bag. Him got back to back them all right. You got a bag. That's the one thing Stevie so. That's the new rule. Okay. You got to do that. You'RE GONNA. Be a leaf bagger. The other one. What do you do so? So! We've got PATIOS. All across the units are all attached and the and the back mind walkout. Nice sliding doors got the aggregate poured Patio Small Kinda ten feet by fifteen something like that on twenty. Maybe I don't think it's twenty feet, but might be twenty feet across devoto ten feet. So everyone's matches and they're all open on the back. Okay, and the fences are low. You know they're kind of kind of chest high. You know so you can see your neighbor and stuff like that. So Steve The dogs shitting all over their patio. All Day Okay pissing and shitting on the patio next to me, no! Okay, which okay. That's their deal I guess they don't walk. They're freaking dog. Whatever you do the end. That's the commitment you get the dog to walk the duck. Or clean up your business, right? You know I mean what's the deal what do I. Do know Steve. Hey Galardo okay I? Don't know if you can see this, but I can see it from here as a bunch of dog shadow over your patio. We're kind of share Zee's here. Steve Okay. There's kind of a commitment here. We're all in this together. Clean up the dog shit. I haven't told them that yet, but stevie. Can I march over there? What's what's the Protocol Stevie? I think you need to have a word. This got to be a nice way of doing it. You know maybe you've. Have you got a patio? Yeah everyone's got a patio. Maybe you could do something to your own patio. That's really disgusting. They. You sort of like wait. Do something that will force them to complain about. You said I'll tell you what I'll make you a deal. Clean up the dog shit. We got ourselves a deal. Yeah or Steve You ever you ever? You'll see this in neighborhoods that happened to the other house. I lived in the call. The family house still around and and Nice Neighborhood Steve everyone sort of pride of ownership. You know. They cut their grass flowers in the front. You Know Nice drive ways painted garage door, beautiful, Stevie, beautiful right. Beautiful you drive through the neighborhood. You know that feeling going. fucking neighborhood! This is beautiful. Okay, and then you'll see. You'll see Louis He. Who apparently you know. Likes to decorate his friend of his driveway in his house like he's on Sanford and son okay. With the old bikes, the you the smelly trailer out there they put on the side. The torn down shed. The doors are open shit lying all over the yard. You know just. What are you doing with the vice? Okay now, vice lying on your front yard. What fuck is that might come in handy at some point you know what's what's what's with that? You know eight feet of rolled up chain link fence, right leaning against the front of your house. Okay. What does that all about? Okay? You know the every. The bunch of branches that you cut in your backyard. They just threw in your front yard. You know what do you do, Stevie? What you listen. What about those neighbors who? have. Abandoned cars like cars. They have no plans on driving ever. They leave them in the front yard. Yeah, Kinda usually have to go into the back roads before you start seeing those, but those issues do exist, but yeah again. Maybe you have to come up with something that's equally annoying and then have them come to you or maybe. Maybe list be like a you know a standoff. Just because that's the Canadian way, really, we don't really want to confront anybody, but we just WanNa talk badly behind your back and hope it goes away. I. Don't put my Work Bench Steve In my front yard and start. You know like light some that you'd be in your tool shed. That Shit Oh. They're my last neighborhood. Where I was for four five years in Bar, haven the entire north side of the street about five or six houses on that side of the street. We were all unified by one thing our loathing of the neighbor. The neighbor, but the neighbors actions. Of putting, have yourself a merry little Christmas in an giant picture window, which was lovely, just lovely at Christmas time. But it was there for the entirety of my four years on that street every day. And we're all. We're all like totally unified by hating it. Yeah, that was up there, but nobody ever did anything about it. Nobody said anything about it. Yeah, this has been a conversation popular over the years of. When did the Christmas decorations? Come down like you saying winter the. Pumpkin okay, pal that that Pumpkin as got mold all over it and it's Brown okay. That's not a big task. Grabbed the PUMPKIN. Throw it out. I'm just telling you okay. Leaving all that shit up for too long. I knew I knew a Guy Steve Smart Guy Okay, because There's tons and tons of people like us. Who leave the Christmas lights up to long? Okay? The troughs want okay around the. They do the nice tight trim with the light beautiful blue. Across the front. Slam right to the back nice tight. Witnessing it going up. Yeah, fuck, all the bulbs whammo down. Do One after another. Okay, no crooked bulb or anything. It's fantastic. Looks like you're showing up at the Beverly Hills Hotel when they decorate beautiful. Beautiful. And the FAB and Feb here. Okay, maybe start to take those down. I know a Guy Steve I knew years ago Waldo. Ransom was hilarious guy. Who I knew is. Longtime. Longtime Dead Guy Now Steve Longtime Guy Long Time Dead, Guy Longtime Dead Guy. So what he did Steve. So, you know the Christmas tree. Light Manufacturers have been trying for years to come up with the easy installed these lights. Okay like I remember my dad's A. Screw in hooks into the facial. Almost right in the in the you know what I mean and you had to. Weave the fucking wires on the thing and. You know, and then they got the clip. Bonn's okay, so you're going to. You're going to look at a clip rate here. You can go go buy those clips. My the light bulbs with the clips, and then I get home and go. I got nothing to clip them onto. The LIP ON MY EAVESDROP Steve is way too wide for these clips. You know so now. What so they keep trying to come up with something? You just doesn't work so my buddy Waldo Ranson. What he did Steve Z., he nailed all the all the lights onto A. Strip of wood. Okay like let's say about four inches wide, okay? Like like like. Ten feet long these these planks mini planes, and he stapled the lights onto the would okay. Then it took him a lot of work the first. And then he put a hinge Stevie okay put hinges on them. Attach the Hinz to the side of his. Trough somehow and then. So once he does that time to get rid of the light, Steve. He just flips them up onto the roof. Okay the whole thing. Just flips up backwards and lays on the roof. Done next year TV. How simple is this just got to get up there? Flip the board back down. It's really stevie. Strong wrong, move okay, very strong move. But I. Don't know got to be something here where you can you know? What can you tell the neighbor? You know what what what what and I'm going with. Just fucking. Throw it out there. Clean up your yard. Yeah, and you know what I mean. Everybody's getting. I think everybody the stage of the game. There's a lot of people anyway that that are setting aside that fear of confrontation. And they're going ahead and it's the masks that are doing it. You've got lots of people that are now either wearing a mask and pissed off at someone who isn't. Or the person that's not wearing a mask and his pissed off at the person that is oh, you're driven Likud are. You're. Shipping government later, urge buying into the conspiracy. That person and then there's the other person's got. Why do I have to wear a mask and you? Don't you jerk? Put your mask on, so there's lots of people now that have no problem with that level of conversation. Well you know that's a whole other thing you know. Stuff this into the files of extremely stupid people. Right. Right, that are arguing about. Get the people who do wear the mask. pull the people aside and go. Hey, you selfish prick! Throw the mask on. I've seen it. I've seen people do it. You know it's like it's like now Steve. My grocery store. May Not to so so the People Steve a really stupid. WHO Say I? Don't need to wear a mask you know. This, there's no way there's no. There's No side of this debate that that first of all there should be no debate so now you're just stupid. Stupid that's what I say. Stephen A. Guy Goes I. don't need to wear masks fucking stupid. Okay, that's what that is just I! Don't I? Don't explain to you okay. I don't want to give you the the obvious. You know the the platitudes here of what's going on right now Steve Okay. You know our masks. The other ones Stevie is every auto. Okay, so you go to my grocery store the arrows. Arrows point down the on which direction now you're supposed to walk down the aisle. They got him on the floor, right. They've got them the arrows. This this so everyone flows in the same direction Steve for the obvious reasons that you not passing people within the six feet. You know you couldn't help it. The aren't wide enough that you can go to one side the other okay. Okay very simple. Follow the fucking like a one way street scenario. One way streets started the left. Go down. Come back up the other I'll. Do you know how many people Steve Urg knowing that okay everybody? I'm at a stage now where I get it but I. I mean I was that. Guy 'cause I. Just I'm so not used to it. I'm not really thinking about looking at arrows on the floor. Doing my thing that I realize Oh Jeez, but I've got it now I. Think we've this. Thing's been going on long enough where everybody should be. As they go into an enclosed space, and they've got their mask on that they should be glancing around looking for directions. You know what it is Steve I'll tell you what they. Pick up by. Smokes Stevie Okay I. Pick them up at a gas station because they're the cheapest deal and and they've got their signs up about social distancing, you know. The drive-through really got going on, they they. They take the. Interact machine whatever you call that little device. You know where you tap your card. Stick it in that thing. The hand held okay. They've taped it to the end of hockey sticks. His when you pull up. Fucking Ram listed comes flying out the window and into an into your car. Okay, so you're sick. TAP TAP. pull the stick back. Pretty pretty easy pretty solid. They're doing all these protocols. This other gas station now is really stepped up. There's a sign Steve. Fluorescent Green with lights on it that says. Because when I go to that gas station I I used to get out of my car and go to the booth and get the guy to give me the smokes lots instead of this. This guy's not here to give me smokes here to pump gas. Felt bad because I see lot of people. Just Hey, yelling from their car gave me a couple of packs a darts. What'd you on? The Guy's fucking pump? He got so now they have assigned. Stevie that says. Please remain in your car. When you pull up your right, smart move, Stevie, that idea. You know another another angle here on on on. Preventing possible contamination virus, catching sure okay, so many people are getting out of the car Steve Okay going to the booth waiting in line okay I'M GONNA guess most everybody every everybody. It's like what what can they possibly do? You Know I. Don't know you, don't they? Should at the grocery store what they should have? The start of each? Was The fucking siren blaring if you crack the. So you. Can trip just like your garage door? You can triple line near okay. A beam and flares go off and they spray with water or something. That's what I would do right right in the face. You know if you get into your car here when they ask you not to get out of your car, right, you should get it with the fifteen hundred pound. PSI pressure water right in the chest. In Most of Canada. It really hasn't been insane. Right I mean I honestly I don't know many people who have. Cove it. I think I can count on one hand the number of people but I. Know you've had a positive diagnosis of covert and they've all recovered so you're thinking. This sense of us with some people that is not really you know a big deal. It's not really here as of it's like, but don't chill the. Hearing the news. Do you don't believe the news? You don't believe what the medical experts are saying it just the sense of this because it hasn't been. You know crazy here in Canada that people feel like it's totally cool if they don't wear masks and it's totally cool if they they do. Roll up on someone with a big handshake and it's totally cool. If you do go to a major large gathering I don't know why people feel that way like I. It's like I don't know they just. Are they conspiracy theorists. I don't get it. Well are held this Steve Okay because I've said GONNA my grocery store, and someone's coming at me when I'm walking down the aisle. I'm going the right direction and they're coming at me. Say Hey. You're going the wrong way. Okay You said that Oh. I do I see you're going the wrong way. These no problem with your leaf blower neighbor. Well no I'm just telling the IN THE AISLE Steve they're. They're going against the arrows. So when they come up. Yeah, right, you mean to tell them. Okay. You don't often Steve Someone's goes. It happens all the time whatever. It's like. There's no whatever here right now with what's going on in the world, right? There's no I rolling and whatever you know. so anyway. One of my favorites of the week was a comic strip that came across. And it's basically two guys, so you basically have three people and they're. They're beekeepers, the three people. And two guys are in the full gear with the helmets in the masks, and all that stuff totally covered up and then the third guy. He doesn't have any helmet at all, and it's entire heads being sworn by bees. He's just getting mold. He's getting killed Ryan so one guy saying he's got a mask and his hand well as an expert in the field I told buddy there that she probably wear a mask, but he kept going on about his his personal rights. Good is that's what it is when you don't wear a mask? Yeah, it's it's it's the level of stupidity. Steve is the equivalent. You're right when you bring up. B.'s equivalent of you know there's mosquito seizigner's or mosquitoes as my mom used to call it. The Mosquitos are bad. Let's go inside the mosquitoes. And so. I compare it this way, so we're on the backyard Steve. We're sitting around and the the mosquitoes of commit. Okay, after a big rain, you know they all hatch and all that shit, so it's a bad mosquito time. Okay, and and you're sitting there whacking away. Okay trying to get the mosquitoes array. Of Jesus. And I'm sprang off on my arm. Steve and you know on my neck. I've got the insect repellent. Steve Pretty straightforward that name. Says it all right there in the CAN, so I sprayed all and there's no. My skin is on me Steve. And your slapping away on. What are we GONNA do this? I can't get rid of these things, okay. Boom Stevo right into the stupid file. Right there. Here's your son you're. It reminds me one of my great joke Steve. Okay Can I. Can I tell you I know after? Trump before I. Say yes, no, it's a good. It's a good joke, so this is the story Steve of the mosquito repellent salesman. Okay now say unbelievable segue and Smart Guy, so the mosquitoes are out. Okay, so that's when he would go door to door out in the country. Eighty five degrees. It's hot flies everywhere mosquito and he go door to door. Knock on these farmers door, and the farm would open the door and the guide say hi, shirt and Times Hi Emma. What's up? You know salesman and the firm go to close the door and he put his foot in. Just hang on just here on the farmers, slapping mosquitoes off his face in the and the guy says I'm a mosquito repellent salesman. And the Guy Goes Yeah I've never worked. He goes hang on. This is the best on the market. Those stevie the best okay works one hundred percent of the time without fail all insects. Okay, it repels right in the firms has really really I'll tell you what pal. If. That keitel repellent is so good I'll make a deal. Going to take you out to the middle of one of my fields. Okay naked! Stripping down naked and a tie you up to a tree. Okay, I'M GONNA. Put your arms behind your back, and since you up to a tree, and I'm GonNa. Leave you there all night. If that repellent works Stevie I will by every can, you can supply. Okay. The Guy Goes. Yup I'll do it I'll do it okay, so he has a little dinner. Stevie and little design and gets filled up and then he goes that night. The farmer takes him off. Their wraps them up around this country and duct tape him to the whole tree and leaves him there all night. Okay? The next morning the farmer comes walking out to the field, and the sees the guy, and he's off and gaunt, and he's dehydrated heads down, and the farmer goes so pal. How was it? And he says. No problem with the mosquitoes, but doesn't that have a mother? So let me explain what happened here Steve. Over Johnny. Dean and Steve. Hungry, calf, okay, yeah, anyway a mosquito repellent, joke, best best segue ever, yeah, very solid. On the Cova. Stupidity Front I think we could probably fire the W.. In there. We're GONNA.

I've slept in cars before deep, but this would be top notch. Okay, top-shelf Shit this would be. Matthew mcconnahey Stevie as everyone knows now he's he's an endorser. Right of the Lincoln. That's he's done these ads. I finally figured out why. I watched a good movie the other day. John Grisham, book called the Lincoln Lawyer. I don't know if you've seen it. It's a movie. They make a lot of you have well as yeah. It was it was. Lincoln is in the city. Right? No I. Don't think so. It might have been Lincoln in the city, but he also drove around in a Lincoln Continental. All the time. Yeah, he had a driver and he was constantly in this. Lincoln so, they're putting. That's that's where the ad came from. Those ads are a little out there but I like him. Yeah, that's why though that's why from the link mcconaghy's a little out there. Yeah I like that guy though. To these great I mean if you saw. Did you see him in the first season of true detective? I did so good. Looming! Grow who says partner Woody Harrelson. I believe I. Did I believe I did yeah, because then they changed it then it's. Different detectives right different stories. I think Oh. Yeah, yeah. They changed cast and everything every year and I don't think anything is touched that first season to be honest. We've watched them all, but the the first season was was clearly the bus. You know what other movie I saw was Have you seen this yet? Tom Hanks new one greyhound, those it good. Yeah, that's pretty good. It's It's on Apple Television and You're going to rent it. Well No, it's. You can get a seven day free trial. This isn't this isn't a commercial or anything like that, but you can get a free trial for seven days and and watch that movie in is pretty good. It's okay, I mean it doesn't have a lot of character development, but it's great action. It's basically during. World War Two. He's commanding a ship. That's basically going across the ocean to join in the war efforts, and there's this one place in the ocean. They call the pit. And I guess this is one area where you basically don't have any more air support. You're going to run the gauntlet. Yeah, yeah, exactly so there's submarines everywhere German submarines attacking all over the place so a good action flick. Was a little shy on character, development, but I still Tom Hanks in the hard to go wrong with that. He said he was really heartbroken. Though he said you know with all due respect to my overlords. On this thing, it was the kind of movie that would have played way better with the epic. Speakers and and and the visuals that you'd get in a movie theater and obviously movie theaters and all that It's not practical right now, so they went without. Hanks's so. Speaking of Matthew mcconaughey and movies. You can look this up Steve if you think some people say math mcgahn tired of over acts and all this shit right. Defying have the same opinion if you watch him in a movie that he did with Jarrett level. Is that his name Jared Leto the Yup musician turned actor, and he got inflict I think he got. AIDS. In that movie anyway, it's an unbelievably acted movie and mcconnachie McConnell mcconaughey. mcconnachie, mcconaughey I think it's a silent G. Matthew mcconaughey and it's Dallas Buyers Club right and I think he lost a ton of weight for that movie, So. You an unbelievable role. He played in the commitment. He had to look at us going Siskel and Ebert Stevie you with you with the the character development isn't very good strong film. Okay, let's move along WNBA. That to close out the show today and and yeah. What about to tell you? It strikes me as a real active stupidity, so from the NBA Wnba Washington mystics Ford Elena Delle Dawn. Hope I'm pronouncing that right She opened up today about the decision by this panel of independent doctors. That denied her medical. Opt Out request for the twenty twenty wnba season. She said, and she wrote this in the players. Which is awesome? She said it hurts a lot and maybe being hurt just makes me naive and I know that as athletes were not really supposed to talk about our feelings, but that's pretty much all. I have left right now I don't have the NBA player money. I don't have the desire to go to war with the League on this and I cannot appeal She's apparently. Apparently suffering from the long term effects of lyme disease, and she has to take sixty four pills per day, but the medical panel ruled that the condition doesn't put her at higher risk of health ramifications. Should she contract covid nineteen and she's like really sarcastic about she says yeah, they caught me. That's why I played in the finals last year with three herniated disks in my back. And I think before we even get into the weather. She's appropriately passing a medical or not. Why isn't the WNBA just saying, oh? You're opting out. Okay? No problem like the rest of Pro Sports. He's right. I thought there was more to the story. When when when we talked about this for the show and I'm flipping through this. Saying this chick is taking sixty four pills a day. For, Lime disease, okay. was one of the if she has which is the main one. And I'm going okay and the headline is. They're not gonna let her take medical. Leave right, which would mean you get paid, so she can do it, but we're not paying you. And this is the reigning MVP of the League by the way. Right so I'm waiting for it to say until the doctor gives us a letter that says you're not able to play. I'm waiting for that right? You're reducing. Not. There Steve Not there okay. Like you say. Are you kidding me, are you what? Do I have, to show up Steve. With my head, cut off holding it in my hands when they walk in. Go this. I can't play. This is. That it's a house in the last. How how possibly? Are. They going to be able to get away with this. Like. First of all, there's no question about the Czech needing medical leave. Okay, it's a little different. If a guy shows up with a bit of a limp saying. I gotTa I. Think I have a sprained. Ligament. Galardo, ligament okay is acting up and I. CAN'T I can't play. And the team Mike. You know what this fucking guys. Miss Games before because he said he had the flu. No, we're not. We're not putting up with this anymore. You Know I. Want the doctor to come in and examine. Bob The. Doctor says you're fine to play, so you gotta play otherwise, you're not getting paid. This isn't the case here Steve. You know this chick. Chicken suffer free from stuff, and the house is going to survive this, Steve, what sort of Pandora's boxes? This can open when other teams look at this going. Okay, fuck, I, get it. Okay, so guy shows up with leprosy verse say no, not until your skin starts to fall off. Are we going to let you opt out I? Just I mean obviously. I don't mean to demean anything about her health situation, but it's all I to me. It's secondary. The bigger picture issue is, and I think this elastic about thirty seconds when the world gets a hold of this. And and maybe we're missing something here, but it sure looks like the WNBA is basically saying that You have to play if you're healthy. In the middle of a worldwide pandemic. where I don't know, what would you say in the world there are. Probably, at least two hundred professional sports leagues that are financially more important than the WNBA and those leagues are generally speaking all saying. If you want to opt out, you have the option to do that. Even if you are in prime condition with no health issues whatsoever, you can just say I don't want to. I. Don't want to take any risk on this front at all. The right WNBA is effectively. Effectively, saying you must play if you're physically able. This is GonNa last about thirty seconds. If that's the case when the world of sports kind of gets hold of that story gets wind of it in a big way. They're going to be saying like. Who Do you guys think you are? And there's no way the WNBA will be able to resist the pushback that I expect they'll get from this. Particularly Steve if you look at the. You know. The history sports you go back over over time or look at look at an individual season. Let's take hockey, 'cause it's our favorite. Do you know how many stories are Steve or the end of the year when? All the reports are we're not going to disclose the injury. The Guy has okay. Because he missed practice, so the fucking press ray during playoffs. They come racing in there. We got to get the scoop on this. That the guy didn't show up for practice. What happened? He must be injured. And the and the you know the coach does his presser and says. we're not disclosing it right now. The most they say, I don't know upper body or something like that. At the end of the season Steve Okay I remember the specifically at the end of the season they will. They will clean all this up right they will, they will. They will tell you what happened. What exactly? Do you know how many Steve Stories are of guys who played injured at the end of that season when they come and go. Yeah, had a cracked rib. Okay and he's still played. That was the injury. Okay, he's separated as fucking shoulder. During practice and came back and played her. This chick right three. Disks or something that she played in. Yes, you know knee brace that they have to put on. Still came still showed up still played. You know Tuck tons and tons of stories at the end. The season's that are legit injury stories. So, you know what you WNBA that you think no, you. You can play. You know these people you know. These people deserve every every moment of time off that they can for for how often these these athletes endure. Look at linemen in the NFL Steve. Or football, you know these guys off show up every frigging game, practices or heart know there's never a light practice for these guys hardly. They gotta hit the bag all the time, and just on and on and on so you're really naive. To think of the guy's fine played all year without without getting hurt in a back to what you're talking about with the the injury reporting of things right they say lower body injury upper body injury pat. Quinn wants throughout an overall body soreness scenario well this week with NHL training camp starting up again. It seems to be almost like a code word for the guy might have covid. or The guy might have covid. Now, they're just announcing unfit might end up being the new catchphrase where we get zero reports any longer about anything and that will be what coaches default position will be when people asking what's up with Galardo. They'll just say looks like it's a an unfit to play situation, and that will be that, but it's back to the basketball player in question. Again. Her name is Elena Delle Dawn and she says that. She still thinking very carefully about whether she's going to join the mystics at the WNBA's campus in Florida or sit out the season and four hundred twenty twenty salary, so when we say that they have to play like the League is saying you have to play. You don't really have to, but they're going to basically not pay you and she'll do is. It's. Totally irresponsibly in if it's presented as the way it is here and we're looking at the score I don't know what the WNBA could possibly be thinking. Well. You know by the statement alone Steve It tells you how tough the athletes are when they say we're not disclosing the injury. That you know you're saying. The the new sexy one will be unfit to play. So. You got to ask yourself why. Why do they say that you know? I used to say why. Why did he just say the guy's GonNa fucking? Her sore neck. And the reason. Is because the guy's GonNa probably end up playing. That's a tough there that they that they often steve have to fight with medical staff says you should not go out there and all of them. Almost all of them go. nope. I gotTA lace up man. I gotTA show up. I gotTA show up. You know. So the reason they do that is. So if we tell him, he's got a bad knee. They're gonNA target the knee right during play the take liberties. They'll take liberties here. That's how tough these guys are. That's why they don't disclose. So it's. Like. That Shit's a joke, but They're going to get killed Steve in that this girl Yep I would think so. We'll keep an eye on that story. It's going to be interesting to see how it plays out. I hate to go too deep on the WNBA. Because you know, we never talk WNBA and probably never will again, but this is just such A. It's more of a story than a League story. I often feel crappy. When we do do that, it's like. Can you believe that in the high ally league? That guy did this and well? Yeah, but you never talk highlights. They don't talk about the controversies of high lot this. This to me is worth talking about still. Yeah, it's an example of what can happen down the road you know look at this. Can of worms thinking open? All they did it in that league and got away with it so. With that show, call it a day. We talked a lot of boats we did. If you told me the start of this show. The topic matter was Wnba and I forget what we talked about in the first half of the show. That neighbors! I would say. That wouldn't sound like a great show, but I think it was a hell of a show. It was great. It was great, yeah. Any final thoughts Steve Oh turn abode. there. Yeah, what a move! Like the Roger Neilson loophole that WHO FOUND! Can you explain? Here's my final thought? Can you explain why I've got a full on addiction right now? To the snack that his party mix. Oh, come on, I am craving. Twenty four seven I'm not hungry for anything except for party mix right now. Have you ever had craving like? I might be a pregnant woman right now. I, did Stevie Tim Tam's is my to the House Tim Tam's. It's a cookie. I, Austrian cookie but there. Steve everyone knows Tim I. don't chocolate covered cookies crumble and Maren Carmel in their ever heard of it. Yeah, so there's nine of them Steve in every sleeve that you get of Tim. Temps and they all sitting individuals slot, Stevie beautiful seven boom boom boom boom, nine cookies right in a row. And I throw a little thing on twitter. Where if I don't have a clock? I lie down with the box Tim Tam's. If I don't have a clock. I can perfectly tell you. How I cover the next twenty four minutes because I eat one of these every three minutes. Or twenty seven minutes. Going through I know I know how how much time has gone by eighteen minutes. I just knocked sixteen times. CHECK THAT OUT Steve. You've gotta take us out them with your. twos cheese bits. Bits and bytes ad, okay, the bits and bytes. And you can check it on Youtube. It's It's fairly accurate. I think I might be good I've lost track of the combination of snacks. Hi. Me Again with my bitten by snacks, steals digging in my hand coming out of the whole new handful. Well, what do we got here for? CHEESE BITS TO SPICE STRINGS? Three practice ticks. Dealerships you can't get boating bits and bytes snacks because your mouth anos till it's all. There, we go bits and bytes Cristea, every handful is different. Yeah! Thank you for Steve Thank you. You'RE A guy. Steve who couldn't memorize math equations in school, but you got this. The know exactly, and you know Simpson's passages right Mr Burns Ironic, isn't it? Dismiss this anonymous clan of slack, jawed chocolate custom the election, and yet if I were to have them killed i. Go to prison. That's democracy for you. It's almost like an angry.

"Hey everybody welcome to the program. It is Ottawa's number one sports podcast according to poles not doc conducted Steve Worn along with Jim Jerome. If you love sports talk and laughs with ninety five percent fewer commercials and radio crams into their world. You've probably come to the right place place where assisted on the play by Jim. Kaye Ford rb computing and all Insurance Ontario get. Our website is Steve W project DOT COM new merchandise page up to new entry today in the Sports Journal Info about the show in our sponsorships and much more. Thank you for being with us. We hope you enjoyed the show. Jimmy our things my friend. Well I'm pausing Steve. I'm GonNa talk a little slower. Swear to concentrate concentrate. You know. I like to bet you said at the start of the show. So I'm trying to think what the odds are of this Jimmy. I'd like to do the show without having to edit it what I WANNA go right into watching Sunday night football when we're done on with doing an hour of editing but what what do you think the chances are Steve with me on the other end of you doing a show without make causing some sort of edit. But I'm going to try Stevie I'm going to try to use my mute button a little more so I don't cough all okay. This'll be good. That'll be good test. Everything's Fine Stevie. How are you doing there? I'm very good good. Yeah that's good nice to hear as as usual I can tell you always care. No I do I do. That's Nice Steve. Running around the house all day. This has happened to me time and time again. And there's an easy solution. The charging cord Steve for a foam. Yeah okay where's the charging court where it's charging cord down the. Oh yeah that's up in the bedroom dare bring it down here and then sit sit in the culture you plug it in there near. The coach decided. Well I'M GONNA go watch the sun on shining the wrong way and the TV and the dry you know so. The drapes don't quite covered so I'm going to move on to this jared put my. Where's the charging court right over here? Picking so it's the charging cord day. Steve I sp- I spent house the worst. Well here's the solution is by more charging courts Steve if I built a house I'm telling you what a big feature would be okay. A big feature few built built a house because they do it they do it now new homes but but they only put them in the kitchen so you can you. Can you can plug your USB straight into a USB port art okay instead of having to have the cube right but when you're building the house now people okay listen up there okay. USB ports everywhere. Steve We've all through the house. Okay all through the house everywhere. But why don't we make cell phone so that they have like actual two prongs that you know they they fold up nicely into the foam but you can fold down the two electrical prongs and you can just take a phone jammed in the existing sockets right uh-huh right no cord required. That's my deal okay. Maybe no cordray. That's my deal though is when I may have a guy come in Steve put in some USB ports entire right. I'm absolutely tired. Well I mean I. It doesn't matter how many you buy. They'll did disappear. It's like socks in the dryer. Nobody knows where they go on. And and it's the same. I lose on the worst with pens. I'm the worst with sunglasses on the worst with winter gloves. Great lose them at the drop off of a dime and chargers and the ones that I do keep around are only the ones that are malfunctioning. And of course we know that happens quickly. I mean there's always the story of losing your Wallet in Your Keys I say to myself look at just. Just put the keys here. Jim Suzhou walking. Put The keys rate here. Put a little table right by the front door and put the keys. There got simple so I come in. Oh I gotta run out again. Where's the keys? A take. What Steve I found my keys? This is true. I found my keys the other day behind the coffee maker my kitchen counter. I got the current coffeemaker Steve with no recollection of putting it. There you were trying to hide it from the cats or something. Joe Always running the House that got the kind of game. I gotTa have a coffee coffee man. I'm an iced coffee and I obviously the keys and you know through through it on top of the coffee maker anyway. There actually is technology that exist now that because I remember barking about this in a very early episode this very same subject and I sorta mused aloud wouldn't wouldn't be great for some sort of technology analogy where you could just a little bit of adhesive tape this piece of technology onto your phone or a little piece on your key tag your keys and then you could just press there's a button and then it would beep or something like that and then and then about. I don't know two three months after that. I realized that actually does exist. So certainly something to consider. I'll try and contract down a link for you and I'll send it to you and you'll ever problem again so I'm like here's the other thing Steve Is. I'd like to murder a friend of mine. Okay Yup Anyway. What else going? I got nothing. There's no story too. Okay here's why I stevie so I have apple TV. I've got the apparently. It's apparently it's like antiquated antiquated. That old steve like on a date. Santa antiquated is the right word. It's it's they have new ones. I don't know how old your apple TV various versions of it might has the little silver silver rectangle flat remote okay. I've got a apple box or whatever it is the little apple thing I've got the separate remote for Appalachia. Apparently now you should be able to get it on an APP on your smart TV. And all this shit. But I I still go to the Apple TV remote. Okay so AH buddy over there having dinner the other night or watching some sports looking at stuff and and then I have always said. If I didn't in love sports I would give up my cable and just go with what Netflix and prime on and crave and all this stuff but I love my life sports too much so anyway so he he takes off. And I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA flip on Netflix. DVD ON APPLE TV. And I can't find the apple remote. Mult Steve Okay. Oh yeah that's okay can't find it which which happens. Okay looking around for controlling the police upset. Buddy Steve Okay walked walked off with the apple remote grabbing it thinking it was his vape cigarette. What Yeah Yeah? Thinking was a great. You know. He's have I smoke in my house. And he vapes in these vaporizer. They look like an apple remote. This little thing. Yeah Guy Guy took off with my apple remote thing it was. Okay get it back. I couldn't you imagine going crisis thing. It was just here. It was here an hour ago. Where could it go so I look behind the coffee maker? It's not there that's the first place you look by the company. I go one of the coffee maker. Okay go everywhere look for this stuff and then and then dude foles goes. Hey I've got your apple remote dumb ass. Yeah on his way later. The airport Steve for an trip anyways so I thought it was my vape. Oh did you Y- digit while you're in luck because I've been I've been down this road before and again I'm going to send you a link because there are apps you can use your iphone Guy Right. I'm an iphone Guy. This other apple has a an APP that replaces that dinky little remote so you can now use your phone. Of course they do a court. Of course they have one steve after after I find out if that was a vape okay how much sucking power do you actually have that you would put the sing in your mouth and draw something from it. You know like what's the the thing goes in your mouth you should know it's not the vape put it down okay. Absolutely and I don't know much about vapes either. Like most of them looked like pens. Don't they know summer summer. A little flatter summer summer little little cooler now they feel I guess they feel. When you put your hand? Stephen could feel like a vape. If you're groping around in the dark but not if you're jamming it into your mouth. Okay soon as it goes in there you go. Oh this is not a vape. This is an apple remote okay. At what point AAC Jesus at least take a hammer to the vape. If you find it well you know what sorry I think he had both anyway away. All of my pies you end up with a vape so now when people come to my house Steve. I do the exit. Frisk okay what are you doing. What are you doing going? I thought I WANNA make sure you don't have any remotes okay. Before you leave my house to stand spread 'em standstill hands on the wall. Okay all right so there. It is the world according to Jim. Jimmy's world a little snapshot of it. We got lots to get to today. We've established all the while the insanity of your life But we want to get into a little bit about the Ottawa Senators.

Maybe it's something you need for the house a trip hockey gear. Whatever just contact Glenn today at Glen Walton Dot Com rb Computing Web poll today James the Ottawa Senators have an FAA this season or a pending RFA? By the name of Anthony Do Claire. He's been absolutely excellent since he arrived in a trade last February story and our poll. Today should send resign him right now or should they wait. Should it be a short term deal or a long term one or maybe a trades the best play. And if so what's the timing on that got lots of feedback on this one. We'll get to that in just a second but certainly had a tremendous hockey game on Saturday the afternoon. And what a perfect way to get revenge on on a guy. A team is declared played for the Columbus Blue Jackets up until February of last season season. And just a few days before he was traded Ottawa by the way at the sends absolutely with that deal. Big Time does ingle for Anthony declare straight up as a win for the Sans Throw in to second rounders coming Ottawa. Way Forget about it but Tortorella just before the trade said. I don't think this guy knows Sadah play. Well Claire did was drop a hat trick on Tortorella and the blue jackets including the overtime winner in a four three three victory on Saturday afternoon. That is as good as it gets. I think for a player looking for revenge against and that's like a gold gold-medal retribution man. Right there absolutely you gotTa Love Tortorella. First of all you've got to okay do. Would you let Edco. Okay do we do we have to you know. Is that your follow up to this trait. Really you really mean Yup like whether you wanNA trade her off auto. Whether whether the word is you went through a terrible office meeting with the guy saying yeah you're not fitting in here doing what you're told I would imagine Badgen by Tortorella comments after the trade that this guy had to face a harsh reality. That's he's saying. I don't think you can play you. Imagine saying that about a guy. That's you know and this is a relatively young player who's been bouncing around the league. And he talked about that too. You know he's been bouncing around in the League and It's one coach after another. You know whining and moaning about this player. And he's got to figure out how to say that about a pro. I don't I don't think it's particularly secularly productive and got that felt amazing for declared a win that game the first thing he does after he scores it was a great one timer. Is he just sort of goes. Come on As he's skating and looking at the Columbus bench that had to feel as good as it gets. But I don't think Tortorella is the ogre that some make him out to be. I think even by you know no matter what your standards are. He softened in recent years but at the same time I don't think his persona behind the bench war with the media is necessarily who that guy is. I suspect that he is because you see little glimpses of it. I think he's a way better guy than people think. Well I can't wait if you're declare. Okay Columbus Not GonNA win every game. Okay they're going to get blown out somewhere. You're you know everyone. Everyone has bad games. And if you're Claire I've we'd be running to the media gone. I don't. I don't think I can coach You know what I mean I would I for sure I would be a three point stance waiting for that to happen and jump on twitter or wherever word or I'd be grant near interviews left or I don't think twitter can go at. That is unbelievable like that that would put Anthony Declare in the hockey interview hall of fame. If he dropped that line after June hole hole that would have been awesome. That would have been. I don't think you can go to defend me very well. I think todarello would roll with that like I think he would say okay. Yup You know what I deserve that there always seems to be this concept of. Oh I don't WanNa burn any bridges and I don't want to say the wrong thing and get play close to the vest that would have been in well within Anthony Declares Rights. I'm sure he was thinking it. I don't think anybody would have begrudged him for saying it. Yeah I mean I would. I know you would think everybody thinks it's such a small hockey community. Nobody wants to step out of aligned too much in and burnt anyone but that particular jab would I think I think tortorella would have said absolutely. You're you're good with that. Yeah you and all the kid going to Ottawa. Dj Smith Right is sort of the juries outright. Okay Ottawa's winning freaking games here here when no one thought they would and they're they're hanging in there stevie you know they're still right at the bottom you had bottom of the standings but they're not that far out there's a big lump of teams from about I. I don't know twentieth overall down to thirty. I is except for Detroit. Detroit is uniquely. Horrific horrific was this horrible and horrific at the same time but yeah the auto is in sort of a mushy average middle that even though the down near the bottom of the standings not that far out of the mix. Yeah they're not. Hold a riddick exactly in Detroit. But you know it'll be so. Dj Right Everyone got got the sense of the guy when he came along. That it's going to be this sort defensive-minded team hardworking big backcheck big for check You know if guys don't don't work their ass off I think is quote was We may not win. But we're going to be a pain in the ass to all other teams in the League which generally means you're you're tight checking all this stuff right and whether that's everyone's appetite take for hockey. I don't think it is right when you hear that as a fan go really. That's what we're going to expect this team. What what what sort of comes back to haunt him a little bit? This guy's the trade for this guy and he rips it up you know offensively. Yeah right offensively gets three and and and some people might be going. Maybe WANNA try a little bit of that. Dj You know. Maybe we want to work this sort of deal. I didn't see the game You know I don't know if the guy just got lucky. Or if he was out of his mind I was lucky in the next two are just terrific shots just right right so yeah. He's got great release. He's got great speed. He's got great skill His the knock on him has been that he doesn't necessarily do what he needs to do. Away from the PUCK On the right side of the puck where he needs to be not covering up for things defensively so he seems to be figuring things out 'cause. Dj Smith I don't think would would deal with them very well because I think he is a defense. I type of a coach yard if he was out there causing twice as many goals as you scoring that would be you obviously a big problem. But he's he's just I think it's a case of DJ shown. Great faith in him giving him the minutes not absolutely burying the way that we toward relative when he fs up and so he's you know every time declare is asked about his recent success he goes right to. Dj Smith is the reason why and he it feels like and he said this is much after the Columbus game feel like a found a home here. Yeah it'll be it'll be kinda interesting right because because because assuming that Dj when he's when he's spoken to his players saying you're gonNA have a spot here if you're if you're buying you know you're going to have a place you gotTa to do it my way and and you'll be fine okay. So the players do this over the next ten games or so they gotTA catch fire here to get into a wildcard or something. But if you're pulled question today is should you sign this guy right away after this single game performance performance and I'm saying for sure absolutely signed him up give them the voter confidence signed him up. That's more offensive punch. Don't if if there's other plan that team though he might go well wait. Wait a minute. I've had to listen to your big speech here about playing defensive hockey hard hitting hitting and all that Shit and now you're signing guys get hat tricks you know which is fine. You know if I'm just saying I'm another player. The score now bunch of goals right. Yeah maybe out of my mind a little bit but I think it's not one one doesn't preclude the other like if you play great defense. It doesn't mean you can't participate in the offense aside of things however it's the guys with blazing speed like declare. Claire has that can do both you know declares getting an opportunity to be up there in the PK which would unheard of last spring when he was in Columbus or or a lot of other stuff's in his NHL career but he's figuring things out defensively and if you only have average speed or low end speed is really tough off to get involved with the offense because you're staying just a an extra moment to make sure that the you that you've got possession of the puck before you're you know headed up the other way and as a result all too you're always a step behind and with the guy like declare he can now play defense and make sure that he's taking care of his own zone and then and then blow out because he can absolutely fly out there so a guy like that even though he's playing better defense. That doesn't necessarily mean you can't Can't go on try and light it up and he has been right now. He's got eight more goals than any guy. That's currently playing for John Tortorella. The Guy said he can't play sheesh. Yeah all right. Let's get to some of the feedback. We got on twitter to our poll question. About what the sense you do with. Anthony Declare Robert Reece is right. Signed him now. Fake Bob Duff Rights. Don't break the bank but I would sign him to a five or six year deal we got. Jt Good friend of the program right there air. I'd give him two years up to five million a season and see how he does have the need to spend money now and you'll find out if he can hold it together. What's the downside? Marc Leblanc Rights. They should weigh. The value is highest right. Now no rush to sign him now the deal should be short term since he is in our FA. The sense should be able to make that happen two years. Sound Right Widen Chabad already have long-term deals and Brady's next Plus top ten picks and last one here James and the one I made me chuckle. Will Mister Montagues rights. You know what. They've tried trading away their leading scorer few times in the past that certainly solved the parking lot exit problems. Thanks to everybody for the commentary as funny.

Finding was in my thoughts on the weekend because Look Scott Sabri is about to return to the Ottawa senators lineup. The team has just sent Down Jonathan Davidson back to Belleville. So that creates the need for a winner. yourself okay. Why would he be sent down? Somebody's about to get healthy and it looks. I'm thinking it's probably Scott. Sovereign who of course had that horrific injury in Boston re collided with David backes and he was out on his feet and landed landed square and his face onto the ice down for a long time. Like broken teeth and face busted up and concussion of course and now looks like he's about to get back in the lineup and this is a team that's been doing okay. But now they get their fighter back. They got bored yet. Ski Who can fight and and did in that Columbus game which is an interesting story as well but Sabbah is probably the real nuclear threat that the club possesses and drew dowdy of the L. A. Kings also said interview Either Friday or Saturday that We need fighting in the NHL and It's you you don't often hear anybody talk about it in those terms anymore that we need fighting And I I totally agree with that thing still being in place as so so many hockey fans who just wanted gone right now and I understand the whole concussion thing. It's it's a very difficult line to walk. But it's still a league that concussions are going to happen happen with a number of things you do playing the game collisions. What happened between bore? Viet Ski and Sonny Milano Where Milano is out cold and an accidental headshot as Milana's falling on the boards? So I still think it needs to be there and I agree with drew doughty and I'm glad that Scott Saban's Prince back in the lineup. Were you on this. Because we've talked about this for years. Now yeah the well. Ah First of all the fighting's way down right from from where it was right. It's just got less and less and less over the years that you don't have the goon that so you would sign for your team to protect the forwards to protect skaters. So it's it's not there. Anymore I guess the impetus that was because the instigator the game change guys were guys are flying faster. They're they're they're they're bigger so you're signing moral I don't I don't know you would know more than I would why it is less but I gotTA admit I turn it up there here we go. We've got a mixer mixer happening. I don't think Dowdy was was talking about for the fan that you need fighting. No no just for the players. Yeah he's old school right. He's old school. It's you know I used to I. I used to break curfew Steve. All the time you know as a kid now now don't freak out here. It was the way it was the way it was back. Then and if if it only meant that I gotta do clean the garage. Because I was an hour late fucking all come home later on clean the garage Roger Anyway but if it meant a tough in the back of their okay if you know misbehaving even as a kid to strap past game not doing it not doing and I think maybe that's what he's getting that with fighting you know guys are GonNa is GonNA crowd look at Connor mcdavid. You know this this guy. He's the best player in the League. Two stories here one is. You're talking about when you talk about it Who Talk About Ottawa Leclair? What's his name? Declare Anthony Declare. Yeah so this brings us big offensive thrust here in one game. Connor mcdavid boy. They've shipped in the last two or three games and this guy's got more speed than anybody going out there but but he also gets mauled a lot and nobody ever fights because of it. You know. Davison Winco back in the day. Hey if you crowded Wayne okay. He's he's over there right away. And if it wasn't David Samantha was marching story. Wasn't marty it was Brownie you know who Dave Brown and if it wasn't him Maybe Buca Boom. I'm trying to think all those guys back eight when you have big giant it goons you know who played on your team and make you go immediately immediately to the guy and and tell them make Zane is low low voice you know. What would you say the Guy I just say? How long do you intend keeping that up? And and and depending on his answer would be the following action. You know right if you give the few very third fight them and tell them okay. Well if you want this is what you're going to have to put up with you know and and it worked. It worked even Wayne Right. I'll see you get you get a lot more room man. You get a lot more room out there when you're going. You know if I do this I'm GONNA get my face field so yeah I mean there's this the still benefits benefits to fighting And I would also say it's not just the players like I think it is. You look at how the entire team's confidence I can go up when you've got some kind of nuclear deterrent in your lineup. If the other teams got a guy who's running amok and he's big guy and you got really nobody in your roster who can handle that then Then sometimes yeah collectively as a group. Confidence can wane a little bit. I think and that it's not just it's just. It's not just that I think just from an in terms of the viewing of the game when there's no fighting there's no hate between the two teams like it say it tends to be a little sterile. Sure I find that fighting a couple of fights and game all of a sudden. It's like I want to win this game. More than the thing I have ever wanted in my life right versus just watching to team skate around with skill in its own this is nice and well. Well that's a great move and Ilia I find that it just adds adds a real spice and amps up the emotion when you try to watch a game as of your sure. Watch watch a quarterback Steve. What's your quarterback when and when this gets sacked okay and only sacked? Maybe like a late hit. Whatever that penalty is the big fifty nerd penalty okay and he gets mauled and keeps getting malt and when it gets hit to get you you know he just gets crushed okay by linebacker? Whoever watch what happens next time okay? He's he's throwing the ball way too early. He's not getting the pocket. He's like snapping and totally aware that I'm going to get killed here right. So it's it's it's an unfair play. You'll see it from time to time. If you're a fan they love it they love it oh just is level them. You don't take the penalty fantastic. You know it. It kind of works related to it but yeah for sure I definitely can. But you're also if you're hitting the guy really later doing something illegal. Yeah you're going you could potentially take the guy mentally out of the game. Aim He can check out and he's going to be the same player however you might be asked to leave the game in might you know faces suspension. We've seen the league right now there. They protecting quarterback so much where it's almost ridiculous. And you'll see a defensive lineman go by the quarterback and the top of his hand goes on top of the guys Helmet or something like that like. He's stroking asking him almost roughing the passer. What what are you talking about right right? There's a double edged sword this anyway. The the fighting will never change. It's only going to get less because the instigator penalty right. Yeah and I think the other part of me is like I speak to both sides of my mouth. There's no question question about access. See the benefit of it But I also see the toll. It takes There was that recent documentary that we alluded to in recent podcast. There was Kelly chase the put that together something like ice gladiators or something like that. Yeah and You see they track these guys and see the toll it takes on some of them and I'd also wonder because one of the excuses and drew doughty talked about it at the weasels run amok if you don't have fighting to curb ball that and I don't know if I've ever seen evidence of weasel stop being weasels like Ken Lensman like the greatest weasel of them all maybe Did anybody and he played at a time when fighting was maybe at its highest in in the night writing eighties. Did he ever stop being a weasel because of fighting within within a game within his career. I don't think so well that that's because there's no no defense Steve Against Insanity okay right right. He didn't give a shit he did not give you not never played scared. Never was afraid of anything. Didn't change his game but we talked about the last week. You know the interesting thing about the fighting You nor heavy heading that hitting from behind all that stuff that the GonNa take the game. Try and get it out of the game Obviously that's what they're doing and the argument against it. All right. I guess the argument commit for it is when you see three on three hockey and overtime you know it's just wide open. It's totally exciting. It's all offense it's you know there's there's there's no heading certainly no fighting right and you don't have anyone touching anybody out there. It's this opens crazy wide open style hockey and it's completely entertaining you know and you wonder if you've never going to three on three. But but they go to four on four one day you know you might might might might be crazy thinking jim well. It's not that crazy man. It's not it's not you know. And if you want to eliminate concussions and fighting in hockey like all this shit about eliminating concussion Steve with arrest. Cardinals is heavy fines. Him Hit him in the pocket book. Heavy heavy I don't think they'll ever be able to do anything about concussions until they change rules of hockey. You know that that I I don't know I don't like some drastic rule change. There's there's just not enough. Change Their Steve for me to see that you're going to stop concussions right. I think you're GONNA have to go. I think the legal need to go to a women's hockey model. Where there's there's contact there's rubbing players out against the boards but there's none of those car crash neutral zone? I'm going a million miles this way. You're going on a million miles that way those types of collisions Those are the ones they really clamped down on. But in terms of rubbing people out against the boards and is sometimes this is actually the unreal body checking but it's anything in the way of of a striking thing where it's body on body on his striking collision thing. That's always going to be a penalty and I think that the league will probably for its own good in litigious way probably go to that model. Yeah or I don't know. Make make the ice shorter. I don't have to get back some something. Something big that they gotta change before you you know every day we were being inundated with the concussion story. Listen there's no doubt it happens. There's no doubt there's a big problem it but but you're not doing anything to convince me. A one game suspension a double minor. It is going to change any of that when we come back on the show. We're going to get into some discussion about the President's Cup the Americans come back and win win it. I oh here's your S. WPA heads up for December sixteenth. The senators will be at Florida.

Well the Americans they come back a brilliant eight four comeback win to take the Eleventh Presidents Cup up on Sunday during singles play Royal Melbourne. You watched it wire-to-wire what'd you think. Well I've got to take back what I said. Because they I said it's an event the Ryder Cup sway bigger. Why don't they just have America against the world one day? They've never done it. So Ryder Cup is against Americans against Europe and the President's Cup is smaller brother. which is America against everybody Europe right so so the both events are asterix because not all the best S. players are playing the American guys but so they were a heavy favourite? They always have been. They've only lost it once. The Americans. This Presents Cup happens every couple of years. They tied one thing five. When Jack and Gary Player there was a tie and these stupid rule that there if if you tie at the end of it that the team who won the year before it gets to retain the Cup and Jack and Gary Saddam? We're not doing that okay. It tight ties to tie so the way it works is there's different formats over four days it's cool. The format is cool. They'll play alternate-shot. There's teams aims of two under these three different formats. The alternate shot or or the four times. I guess is cool. Then a bunch of different things and you get a point interview win the match and if you tied the match you get half a point and The team that gets its thirty points altogether. Once you add up all the matches the team will gets the most points wins so you need sixteen points and America was supposed to walk over this thing and I tuned in and started watching and all of a sudden there is a situation where the the first morning matches are. There's four points up for grabs and international team. International goes up three one stevie. Oh here we go so I started tuning in and I got hooked they. We're down at one point. They were down five points. After a couple more sets a matches and the final day is all twelve members of each team played Manno manno singles and the states were behind ten ten eight a couple of points behind and they came back in one of the things so it was high drama. You know. Oh they were the whole way so I gotTa admit I I loved it. I loved it but the only reason Steve I think I probably loved it was because of the underdog story. And who doesn't like that story when it happens. You know so. That was great. But I'll tell you what I can. I'll tell you what Steve. The biggest highlight for me was a tiger woods played fantastic. He was the captain but he also was a player and he's not going away he he. He did extremely well in it. I forget his exact point. Total through there you go. He was the best player out there but what was really cool is over all the years of of living in the era of Tiger Woods. What's which were so lucky to see them? The great athletes that are you know. That's I love about it right now. There's just so so many superstars in all sports and of course tigers been the number one guy out of all this stuff out of all all these sports I think over his his time and so not only. Is this a fantastic story. That he's playing at the highest level. He's ever played but he was the captain so he took himself out of the match. You can't play everyone in every set of matches you have some guys have to sit out and But I saw a side the tiger woods that I've never ever seen before and I don't think anyone's ever seen in all these years above following tiger woods is he's been. He keeps his cards very close to his chest. Yes Steve. No one knows very much about his kids. no-one knows very much about what he does. Away from the game unlike Phil Mickelson for example everyone sort of privy to this guy lifestyle tigers is never ever allowed too much stuff to go in there unless it got out of control okay about ten years ago. Now's house when the shit hit the fan for Tiger and then I think last year a couple years ago with with getting impair charge maybe or having some trouble with some payments and stuff like that but but you just never get very much from tiger. And he's interviewed all the time. The cameras are on the whole time. This Guy Steve. This total personality of this guy showed up. He was hugging guys. He was doing granting interviews. He was giving Nia different angle on stuff. He was highly emotional the whole time about it. They showed him on a bus leading. Everyone and happy birthday for rickie fowler color. He was crying at the end of it. You some running around the golf course watching matches and running guys when they made apatin hugging the bear hug and these guys and stuff and I found that totally intriguing. I said you know the guys human. He's human and more than that you know. He's like a superstar her superhuman with his ability. But that's what I took away from that thing you know it was. It was four days of almost this side of tiger. Almost like a documentary of. Here's what here's what the real tigers really like. And I fell in love with the guy I fell in love with the guy. I've always been a fan of course like most people. I've never cheered against them ever through all the controversy that he's been through but I really fell in love with the guy was just crazy. How much this meant to him and on paper Stevie go what does tagger give a shit about the president's Cup and also Ernie els was the captain the international team and you got a lot that from that from Ernie? He was emotionally drained. They're about to do something. Something that was never done. Hasn't been done or with the exception of one time in beating the Americans at their own game and I just thought it was great. It's too bad you missed it but it was more away from the Gulf shots that that I said this is great disappointed by tiger. I've loved seeing the transformation of the guy in that you know he's he's always been great. As far as a golfer goes so much came to him so early superstar and all that but he he's been humbled no no not just from the scandal. His game was taken away from him. His health went away and he was just an okay player there for a while and now he's come back and he's really good again. I think he sees the end of the road. Now right with with age comes perspective and I think that that has brought wrote some levity from this guy like this isn't going to be. I'm not going to be doing this forever. I am a mere mortal here. I need to enjoy this ride. I need to you know show a little more my character and not just this can golfing robot Zombie that I was for about twenty years. There's and You'd see it every once in a while in a big pot and you know the fist pump. I get that but just the way he was with the media the way he was with fans it was so close close to the vest all the time and now I like this tiger that for all the reasons you talked about. Yeah if watch watch the match. He he played with Justin Thompson. He paired up and get to pick the pairings. And all this stuff. There's some there's some science behind it it's not predetermined. They weighed after each round round matches. And they sit down and say okay. We're GONNA put this guy against guns team but watch watches reaction. Look it up after him and Justin. I'm Tom Tom. Thomas won their match. Integra went ballistic man. Ballistic the do like like they had won. Something the the biggest thing they've ever one you know and I'll tell you what I'll tell you. What Steve? The Way Tiger Woods was in that thing and the way he reacted has totally takes that event over the top totally takes it over the top. You know and and I've got to admit I was very blase about it. But this guy's singlehandedly rip this thing into a highlight. I don't know who the tennis players Steve. The guys the guys a goofball good player but he often does crazy shit that he doesn't care he doesn't trying China shot and talking to the curious I think so that guy and when you look at that guy and the way he plays some of these matches where he just got he's got to snap factor that that turns into this crazy thing where he walks off matches screams and yells at the The amp during the game. Amy He he lets a shot. Passage doesn't try and people like it destroys the game Destroys it and compare that to someone one who not only says I care about it but shows it it was. I can't say enough about it. I can't say enough that this guy was so into that thing. And you you make a good point is I think well. We can't really say is going to his better days. We won the free master's and another event is that he's he's a new guy he's a different guy and I. I don't know how to explain it. But I'm telling you that that victory in the President's cup the meant I had. I heard more from tagger about that than I did. Any other event that he's won any other title you know he was. He was highly emotional about it after and and it was sort of. You know one of these guys get a little more modeling. You Know Steve as we get older and he's got kids and His life is. He's in a perfect spot. Perfect spot and it was great. Yup I'm looking forward to you. Know we get out to the springtime and we and get the bad weather behind. Start thinking about the masters against everything not just it tiger reemerging here the last little while But just so many interesting compelling characters right now on the PGA tour in my opinion. And even in like I was talking earlier when you when you have a little bit of a hate on for something or someone that adds to things it amps up the emotion and the Patrick read thing new moving into this moment. that that that was a factor breath through the whole thing as well because he of course was Making sport of doing this sort of a digging motion at one point after he made a big PUTT in the weekend. Just I saw the highlights of the whole thing. I didn't see anything live. But you could tell that he was amping up the opposition amping up the fans and two to one point where I think his caddy had. Uh apologize because some fan went up and said you know you F ing loser. Something like that like two feet away in those a bit of a pushing match all of this stuff adds drama and interest to the bottom line of this thing. Yeah you know like like Ferte has a great interview show right speaking of getting to know players and who's humble and who's not David Verdes had this award winning. Show one on one interviews for an hour and you know he's interviewed everybody. Everyone from from past presidents. It's in the United States to Jordan. Speed is Phil Mickelson. There's This is a new up and comer in the PG and then there was Patrick Reed and all the four or five guys I just mentioned outside of Patrick read where Super Nice guys very down to earth and in the end all of them were like this is the greatest deal in the world that I have gone and Patrick Reed was sort of blase and insisted on taken can ferte for rip in one of his Ferrari's you know and and a lot of the people said really dude really We get it but you know you WANNA slip a little under the radar there. I think Steve with the girls sort of you. Know Ultra Uber. Rich life absolute opulent lifestyle that they get get to and he sort of was I put a bad taste in my mouth. He was almost in his opportunity to show people how I got the world by the balls right while the guy's obviously got issues right. He's got skeletons in the closet and demons and you read up on the feud with his family. He's basically a strange from his parents. They're not allowed to show up even though his family lives like six miles from Augusta. They're not allowed to come. Watch him at the the masters. So it's it's it's a troubled sort of a situation. Don't know how it got that way but one with you know have to assume that there is something at play from his childhood that may be has now seeped into his adulthood but that's all speculation. We need to call it a day. My friend any Any final thoughts. What final thought thought to have today? Steve I love impressions because they're banging on okay. I get a lot of people impressed with migrate impressions of celebrities. You know that Steve you've been you know. I've been friends for a long time now. And I know how crazy it is when I when I do an impersonation someone I lose my mind. Yeah I mean what are you Steve. Okay you're part of this deal now with the suspenders. You do a bunch of editing now for the show down with Russ okay now so now. We're all on a group text together right you and me and Russ uh-huh okay. I'm blocking him now. Steve Okay from did you see his obnoxious little pictures to today's that he was at the Vikings game his is daughter's boyfriend hendrix place for the Vikings they're playing in La in Brussels there so we went to see a little constant photograph of a of a white claw. Drink all the time. Okay okay if you are you are you. Are you feeling my pain a little bit now. Steve you're on board there without starting to turn to think he likes white claw hard seltzer.

"The S WPA podcast, sports and whatever? I get everyone welcome to the s w. it is a podcast. It's all about sports and whatever my name is Steve, Lauren I'm in Ottawa Jim Jerome in Edmonton couple world tsn radio morning. Show partners now making nuisances of ourselves here in the podcast. Thank you for being with us. We hope you enjoy the show Jimmy. Our you I've got stevie. I'm good big day a big day. a couple of things. I know you know I stopped looking at. How many followers our listeners we get! Get totally destroys me. You know if I looked at a showing. Eleven people listen this week. It's never that low. You've done a fantastic job I mean. Keep keep this thing up. People got to know that you do all the pre show and all the prep. fucking, walk in and flip the MIC on well I do a little more than that we do. We do. Look and stuff but. And, so you just never know right. Stevie, what shows are going to be good and So I'm like the CADDY Golfer Relationship Steve Okay when when some shows for whatever reason they go to ten thousand and From the previous show that might be two or three thousand. which is which is really solid? That's really good for. PODCASTS because there seven hundred and fifty podcast seven hundred and fifty thousand podcasts Steve that are out there. Every second. There's a ten new podcast it's it's. It's crazy, but but a lot of that is. Because it takes no time right to put together. It's really like re recording a phone call with a guy you apply for these APPs almost given. You've got to wait a while, but it's Kinda like anyone can do a podcast. Literally anyone can do one and right and. And it's kind of free rein right the almost approve all these obviously approve. Seven hundred and fifty thousand. But when there's good listener Steve Okay when there's lots of listeners is like if you ever ever listened to a golfer or a caddy, I should say after a golfers around if the guy is if the guy misses the cut, okay, if he shoots high, seventy, five or something. And the cat he'll say. Yeah, he didn't. He didn't play very well today. How tough time up there? Okay, if the Golfer should sixty three. Always here, this academy will. We had it going on out there today. He gives it the we. Right, if the soap, that's what I'm doing. I really brought it there Stephen. Show number two. How so look up going to find a tunnel listeners, so I really thought my best show. Steve was a show two hundred eleven. You AIN'T GONNA. Look Oh my God twelve thousand Yeah, there we go, and then the ones that are bad. Steve I'm going to yeah. You had a tough time to liaise. Well that's Kinda your ammo. That's China your personality right? Does the spotlight bright? Okay? I'll get into that one. GonNa find myself under there. I'm kidding. They're out there. They're great I'm really I love doing this podcast? It's a lot of Lafayette's fun and lots of people listening well. Nobody's doing daily APP. Nobody's doing daily episodes of podcast. Unless, they're having fun with it and that's that's Kinda the bottom line as well as having great sponsors, so we obviously. Think All Insurance Ontario Jim Kaye Ford. We Jim Carrey Lincoln as well we also thanked. Glenn Walton I mean and and grams stump grinding right now so. If you don't have sponsors. You're not necessarily as. But would certainly be churning out podcasts either wakes having a great time. And it's not a hobby right. I mean obviously it's a commitment, and and so now you're when you do. Have sponsors right for this thing. You Really WanNa. Pour it on for them, and of course okay, we want more listeners to for the sponsors to stay involved and yell and stuff so anyway. Thanks for listening. Share it with all your friends. Would you get out there? Make this week. The theme more or listeners for Jim. Steve why it's funny. You talked about listenership because in the last episode. listenership pretty much doubled for that episode and I'm thinking to myself well. Why was that then? Kate, so we talked quite a bit about racism. Was the masters. Some guy from deadspin wrote about the masters that the name might be racist that had to. Maybe it's time for it to go. We got into Wallace and NASCAR thing with. You know bubble loss having a news, right? Planted in his garage stole and the unbelievable support that he got from all the other NASCAR, teams out there at the conclusion of the race on Monday right and so with that level of or that kind of topic matter I was thinking one of two things with a literally a doubling of our listenership I was like man. We hit on some great topics that the world wanted to hear or be that we that we said maybe some things that got ourselves into some hot water in this when people going. To hear what they said about this or that so I'm hoping it's I'm hoping it's the former right right. You wonder how it can. How how it can double so quick right right? It's like that thing was yesterday. You've got your regular listeners, Rick, rain, and all these guys who listen right. There's there's a bunch of them tons, and then you go. How how did that? How did it of go viral ish? Anyway I'm trying to think what I said. Steve I dunno Jesus Everything's Fine I'm sure it's fine. As being listened tomorrow with a K. was getting annoyed because what I'll do is I'll read read out if you Patriot member names at the start of the Shell and he will annoyed that he hadn't heard his name, so he actually is a neat little cartoonist. I don't know if you knew that or not, but he did this. This sort of a comic strip. I should say not a cartoon but comic. Of Young Marco Watching now. What are these kids shows? I think it was What was the one where the woman looked into her fake mirror hand mirror I see Jimmy, I see Stevie and swapping room was romper room case, so he was Marco with a k. when he was a child. Watching and you know I see and then. It's the same effect with me. And the Patriots on members mark with a k. with a and he never heard Marco with a K.. Dammit, in either case room or his favorite podcast, and so finally the other day we did in fact. Mentioned Marco with the case so He was feeling bad about week week markle. weakside. Okay, you don't need to Markel. Marco has been the mascot from our radio days right, not a mascot. Attention men. Regular. I know Mark I love Mark I had lunch with them actually one time we.

You have to be talking all the time. You know you can talk about your Gulf. What's the circumstances of golf and things like that? So I think that's a great place for a first aid actually. WOULD BE A good poll Steve We. Don't do the wet bowl. I don't know you don't do the polls very often anymore. What would be a good one is not if. Not If, we take you, throw it up.

And Daniel offered in my part of the world would be everybody's choice to get in. Maybe in your part of the world, it would be Kevin Low I. Don't know but He's not listening to surly listed as the as the guy so the candidates this year. Daniel offered Sinn. Rod brindamour and these are in relatively. Alphabetical. Order Patrick. The devils the Oh flurry Sergei Gonchar Marian Hossa Jerome Again La Curtis Joseph. Kevin, Lowe. Alex Mogilny, Pierre Turgeon Doug Wilson those other very biggest. Names that are eligible There are others. But anybody in there. Really grab you. Jim You know I'm biased, but I think it's I think Kevin Law. Get in when I read was reading the profile? Kevin is a friend of mine. Six Stanley Cups. Okay seven time all star something like that. I think Kevin's in. For sure. I don't think Jeremy. What do you think? I say yes I'm Kevin. I don't think so based on the if you're asking me to pick the top four, I don't have Kevin Lowe in my top folk. I. Do I think McGill Nail? Get in unless he did last year I. Don't I don't know he didn't get any last year? No, no, he's still there he. He played nine hundred ninety games. And Mcginley Cup? And let's see. They. got a gold medal with the Soviet, Union and Certainly mogilny in that discussion for sure. Well actually I've got to stick to my own thing I'm GONNA go with anyone Steve Who's won a Stanley Cup this year? Did this pressure on the hall with all this discussion that? You got to win a cup to get in. You believe that. I I believe it should be the way. I believe it should be the way. Well. That certainly gives Kevin. Law Leg up because six Stanley Cups. Nobody I think that's eligible highs that many. Yeah I mean. That's what it's all about winning a Stanley Cup. Now I'm the same guy who said they should have a muck or award. Guys who guys like fourth liners men played for fifteen years. You know in the NHL but. Last year would be an example of that Yup. So out of your list, Steve, if there's if there's four guys with one cups, that's why I'm picking. But I don't. Rod Brindamour Shack Patrick Eliash the Oh flurry. Sergei Gone Shar. With Pittsburgh. Marian Hosa when it three times Gerald McGinley never one, but he's the one slam dunk that I've got. I think that's guy. He's by to me. He's a first ballot hall of Famer. He's eligible for the first time here. And I think he gets in right away. Kahlo of course is six cups. Alex Mogilny has a couple of the devils. As I mentioned in. No no cups for Pierre Turgeon not ups for Doug Wilson, so you have more than four guys with copses my point. Okay so he can win. That Way So I can, but I gotTA eliminate. Some guys who do have a company can't be might four so. Did you say mobility did win a cup or not, he did. Okay I'm going with Kevin Law Mogilny. Theo fleury. and. If you? WanNa Pick Rod brindamour. He did he cafe Carolina. There's my for. Okay. Well. I'm going to go. Let's see I. Think for sure it'll be jerome again. La that much I know, everybody else everybody else. I'm uncertain of them going. Daniel Alfredsson does fourth year and. It's. They had look at him. You look at the decade of two thousand to two thousand nine. In that decade. He was the NHL S- third leading score. So I got him. I'm GONNA fire Theo. Fleury like you. I think that's a that's a guy and AG. Jackie back talked about this today and kind of talk me into the O. Fleury think of the adversity, the two major bits of adversity for Theo, fleury. Starter out of the gate body size. He played at a time when there weren't that. Many small guys theo fleury would come into the league now and thrive. The weights played now right, but he came into the league when guys like Eric, Lindros were prowling around out there, it was a big man's game, and he was phenomenal, so and he got to play for team, Canada he won a gold medal. He won a Stanley in his very first year in the league, and was a contributor as a rookie and had over thousand points. On top of that, he he the inspirational story that he was. Overcoming now had his issues along the way, but still overcoming to get to the NHL. After the whole Graham James thing right right so the fact that he had to deal with that is is a young man in his formative years, and to go on, and have the career had he had obviously many demons and many bad moments, dark moments in the League but. Just when you think about how he was set up that that. Ninety nine times out of one hundred. That is not a guy that's going to the NHL. Let alone had the kind of career. He did so just based on the inspiration that I. Take from that Guy I think he. It's time that he got in So there's there's three and I'm going to close it out. I mean Alex Mogilny Man. That's. That's a tough one to to overlook Doug Wilson to so good I'm going to go with I'll probably throw marion hosts and their wholesome okay. I mean three Time Cup champion love the player bit of a homer bias granted. Because, he was so good with the sans wish he'd had his whole career here, but terrific career for sure, so that's my. That's the four I would pick. I think you're down. I think you're down forty, but you paid me. I'm not down. No or your? No, I'm just you know it might have been more. I know one fifty or one hundred off, you forget. For Bragging Rights Sake. I am down. Yes, yeah, you're okay so. We'll throw a double Saalbach on there. Okay. Twenty, you don't saw box TV. Cheer a single Stevie Deuce Offen-. Assad Book a double saw book twenty half a C, note, fifty and a c note. For a hundred and a dine is thousand, Stevie Okay okay or from my mother, mother of course raised. Who knew because she was a? Knockout. NFL Picker right and betting heavily on her cribbage games. Yes, that's right. That's right. So, twenty bucks the guy gets the most out of his picks. Get wins the twenty. So. They're going to win. That's what it's GonNa come down to and the funny thing about a podcast is. It's recorded ahead of time so right now by the time you're hearing, this will already know who the winners were and here they are. High it's future Steve. Far more good looking than presents. Steve decided to out in the future The two thousand twenty class of the Hockey Hall of fame. Is Jerome Again La Marion Hosa Kevin Lowe and Doug Wilson. Now. Let's get you back to present Steve. So? That means I. AM the winner of your double saw? Yes, me, no, it means I'm the loser bright. Okay because I. Need a victory here. You needed this. Because I was crushing you on all the other bets that we have from time to time. I can't believe that fucking guy got in a brutal bright that guy. Hey. Let's change gears here. And Rothlisberger in the Nieto's the steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger recently shared details about personal battles that he's had off the field. They would people think about Ben Rothlisberger and things off the field. They think of him being twice accused anyway in a way convicted accused of sexually assaulting. A woman in both college, and then later on in his pro career, also accused of sexual assault I believe I in a public washroom. but that was just accusations and again no convictions but. He spoke during a Christian conference online. Father's Day and Rothlisberger admitted he struggled with addiction, not just with alcohol, but also an addiction to pornography. You said all that makes me not the best husband, not the best father, not the best Christian. He can be Rothlisberger said he's trying to be a better Christian and that he was baptized three years ago though he was also. Also baptized as a child and he says it's not always easy. I'm sure there's some reliability in here for you, James. People don't realize all the time that athletes. We are human. We send like everybody else. I'm no different. We make mistakes. We get addicted to things I think sometimes we get put on this pedestal where we cannot make mistakes. I've fallen a short as anybody. That's on Rothlisberger and his admission there yeah. You know unfortunately. You know he's he's right. I like I like what he said. I'm telling you what that's brave to come forward and say. you know that you're you've had problems with boozer drugs? That's been around for a long time. Right and more and more people are vocal about it and more open about addictions. You don't very often hear guy admit that he had pornography addiction. And that's not to say. It's not out there, right? There's a huge problem, right. And it takes down. Tons of relationships right. So for him to do that is That's pretty strong I. I haven't heard of person. Know celebrity person the public I. You know, say that very often so. You those things that happen okay. There's massive consequences for it. And I. Know Myself that difficult. The difficulty is you're trying to make it whole again, right? You're trying to when you do. Come out of it when you do recover when you do. Go into recovery and change. Your Life Change Your And you know there's there's big things you have to do. One of the problems is a lot of times. You want it all to go away. Right, you, WANNA. You WanNa say okay. That was then, and can we. Can I move forward? You victimized. And sometimes it's very easy for for those of us who have victimized to turn around and go okay, we gotta move forward. You know your going to have to. Move forward, and and so now you're in a really tough position where some might say really. I have to move forward so that that's the tendency. You know that you just want to see okay. I got to get this behind me, and I want completely forget about it. The the problem is Steve you'll never be able to make that stuff whole right? You'll never be able to. You. Can't right you've you've harmed people? You've heard them. You don't want to admit it a lot of times. You just wanted to be behind you. So, that becomes a very difficult person thing to do when to understand that you'll never ever be able to make that stuff whole. So, what do you do right? So, what do you do? You know, but I found myself dwelling on that for many years you know the sort of guilt and worse than guilt, the shame of it all right the tremendous shame that comes with it and you feel lesser than you feel devalued. Just, it's just dark days for you right when you when you come to realize Oh my God. You know there was a way better me. There and I didn't do it record. Caused so much frigging Shit my wake here. But if you don't China move on you're you'RE GONNA? Rob Yourself of of the future. Of A relationship with your family, relationship your teammates. And a relationship with the public. That's a totally different ballgame for these guys. The tough thing is. The fans out there. The general public love to see people make mistakes. And that's the shitty part of human nature. Well, your thought is if you're a season ticket holder for the Pittsburgh steelers. There's probably part of you going. we won super bowls in two, thousand, five and two, thousand, eight with Ben Rothlisberger at the helm but I wonder. If maybe we left some championships on the table. Maybe Rothlisberger wasn't potentially at his best. I'm always amazed that anybody. That has some kind of an alcohol dependency. is able to compete in any way shape or form at a at a at an elite level. Stay at the highest level in their sport I. Think about it with hockey hockey alcohol man, that is a major league problem like there are so many guys that are still playing in the NHL and yet they're doing alcohol. They're doing cocaine and it's shocking to me that they're able to function. At that level because we've all been hung over, you know we've all been drunk and you just you can't even imagine doing anything physically. Hand eye coordination any of that like at a very high level, not to mention. How strenuous is it? Is You just? Don't you almost don't feel like doing anything I can't even imagine. Being able to win. Two super bowls went when you're dealing with all this stuff. Well that's the problem. With addiction is, it's allusive. It's it's cunning, right? It's a it's a it can. It can baffled people right. And that's why that's why it's so rampant. Right because you can go a long time with having a boozer drug problem and people don't know you know. Cocaine liked the. I'll tell you that there'll be lots of people in your life that you know in your circle or not lots, but they're going to be a few. That are addicted to cocaine, but you'll have no idea. Me For example you didn't write for many years. Right zero idea. Right zero idea, so so it's A. It's a slippery thing. Right and and it's almost unfortunate. It's that way because I think if it was if it was really apparent. Right away, if something was you know, showed up on your skin. There's something right away and you knew that it was a drug problem. I think a lot of people would get to a lot quicker. And if you were? Exposed. For it so. That, that's that's why you can. You can't drink and you begin to. Begin to enable it by adjusting your schedule and and you know pick and times where you gotTA. Feed the addiction and not so. Anyway, the first. The first step in it man in recovery. For first of all awareness. And admit admitting to yourself that you got a problem so. Yeah hats off. Yep I've gotTA GIVE THE GUY hats off! To step up. And and say that he had a boost problem. I don't know if he had had a drug problem or not. But the pornography is a is a really really tough on to admit you know such a such a shameful thing, or it makes you feel shameful before you understand that you got to sickness here with addiction so.

And now he's Got Cova his wife as cove it. At least two players have covid. Probably some fans do although we're not getting headlines on that, and then you look around Gulf right now. We're seeing some some names. Brooks cap caddy Graham. Dallas caddy. There was a player Cameron Champ so he's pulled out of the upcoming, so it's I. Mean it just a one. Red Flag I think after another that sports is getting But. There's still nobody that decided to shut it down among the major sports. Well. To me, the writings on the wall. You know that that. Antero right? The Prima been on top of this thing, right? He's talking about phasing things back in and. And so have other people. You know I'm I'm going golfing today. I don't know how that's GonNa work I don't know if you're allowed to ride I I don't know what the deal is. All I can tell you that you'll probably find. If you're riding on the cart. They'll have like a plastic sheet between the driver and the passenger Oh. Really. That's what they have here. So. The thing is everyone starts to talk about phasing things in the. PGA has started up again. The NHL NBA baseball all that stuff. You know all these sports and and other things restaurants have reopened, and so that happens and then whammo. We're starting to get more news of of more people right? Getting affected. Infected or affected, so let's shut down again. You know. Let's shut it down again. People are way too impatient as far as I understand from the knowledge that I've gathered from reading about it. I think the the how I'm feeling about. It is just. Make sure you. You know taking all the precautions you can. Like I look at the Jovic Tournament. And the photography that you're seeing coming out of that thing like a not just you know at the event. They're posing for social media and they're all crammed in together. Waving at the camera There's hugging going on after matches. And then there was also some photography from you know nightclubs after between Games and. Just be smart about it. You know, play the odds and everything. You're not fully in a situation where you're going to be able to wipe this out completely, but do your best to mitigate the risk the joke of its tournament was a bit of a joke. Yeah. You know when they're still saying to me right? We've got to be more diligent more. And more and more diligent than we have been so make sure you keep the six feet. Don't go anywhere without a mask. Make sure you're washing your hands every four and a half seconds. You know disinfecting them Blah Blah. All of that to me says or stay home. Right or stay away from go outside like I'm going golfing today, but. Outside stuff I. I'm I'm okay with being outside. This shit, where people are shopping and I. don't go shopping anymore. I'm done I'm done with that because people are running by, and I went to Home Depot Bunch of times, and I'm like your really tempting fate here. Your really tempting fate, so that's that's what that's. What I think should happen. Slow down here, everyone slowdown. Let's back all this up. People, all of a sudden became experts who aren't experts you know. It's like. You know what what did Donald. Trump do the other day that you know the. There's a bunch of more positive test coming, so he goes. I know how we'll bring them. The positive tests down. Let's not test. Maybe a quite frankly, and it gets kind of lost in the Sea of Moronic things that that guy is said, but that may be the dumbest thing that a world leader has ever said what's next. You'RE GONNA stop. Testing for colon cancer, you know there's too many cases of colon cancer. We need to stop testing for it. You DUMB ASS right right? Right anyway we gotta go. Anyway we'll see what happens so. You've gotta go. You gotta date. We'll see what happens there. I've got a perfect gift for you by the way since it is a first date and it's on a golf course. The perfect gift for the first date that I think also sends a message. You get her. A sleeve of Pro v one balls. You pull one of the balls out. Put it in your bag, but you make sure as the. Should the balls of the color blue as you hand them to her. So she's off. She'll take a hint maybe I. See. Where you're coming from going into this date, it's been awhile. Good. Augusta bathing. Everybody we'll see you.

I'm trying to think back toward it but those usually make for great show Stevie Those usually make great shows. No Bullshit. You're not a minor non bullshit show today. It's the end of the week our last show of the podcast week and as always. I don't WanNa do any editing Probably have to do a little but Yeah those those tend to be kind of loose shows sometimes workout. Sometimes they don't sometimes the dreadful but let's see how this goes yeah. I know how bad it's going to be looking going okay. I hope fifty minutes has gone by. Note Minute fifty minute fifty so stevie. Here's what I did last night. So I'm disgustingly fat. Okay now I've got. I've got to call the C. Pot.

Like if that's a complete waste of time like or is it even worse than if you had done nothing Steve. That's not even courage men and support. What I'm I'm generally asking? An open ended question because I am concerned and I'm concerned that when you do your treadmill thing that all the passages opened up nicely in your lungs and it looks like looks like gyms going to start treating US better and it's receptive accepted all the goodness and then all the sudden jamming the tar and nicotine and it sucks it right up thinking everybody's healthy now. Well what what. I am a bit of an over reactor actor Steve Okay. So there's people in this th there's like a weight section at the back okay. We're all the muscle heads.

Hey Hey proud of you now you get that from right proud of your way to go man good to keep it up keep it a great day. Four or five Steve. Okay on the Han shows up again starts to walk over to my treadmill and starts to tell me. Here's how you should exercise Jim. Okay listen let's put the let's. Let's doing ascending ramp. Okay can raise the ramps on the treadmill. Let's get you doing some interval stuff. Maybe we're going to get you over hidden away. No fuck off Hans Okay. We're not doing anything anything. I'm doing my little job here. I can't stand it but it that's probably true with you. You're the kind of personality you don't really want advice about anything for Noah's part it's not just exercise. I would suggest that you'd have your car breaks down you've got the hood op and you're looking at it. You have no idea what you're doing you still don't want somebody to come along advice right. I mean if you did something Steve. Okay although although I am intrigued by some people I got a buddy came over the other veins like fuck. You've lost a lot of ways. It's like twenty five pounds. This was this interesting. What he does is for half an hour he he runs he starts he? He walked for a minute. The so you started Steve. You Walk for a minute and then you run as fast as you can for ten seconds and you do that for half an hour so it's probably like are you doing thirty seconds. Thirty ten second runs or something like that sounds. That sounds pretty good so I tried. That lasted fucking twice. Okay doing it. It's hard to do anyways so some of some of it. I don't mind but I just don't I I just don't need people weighing in. Here's what you should do. What do you mean what I fucking should do? I wasn't doing anything and now I'm doing this. Here's the thing like so you've started the show by talking about your fitness and things like that. Here's what I'd like to try and do with some of the subject matter you've chosen for the show today gun little advice for you on this. I'll shut up okay. I know what you're doing. I know what you're doing now. You know what I figured. FIGURED OUT THOSE Steve. I often wake up in the middle of the night with good ideas and I write them down and Sometimes I forget but you know what I figured if you want to accomplish something Steve Anything. Okay whatever you wanted to like like if you wanted to go back to school if you wanted to get in shape diet you wanted to do other things that you you WanNa play the guitar right. You WanNa take up music you want to get more broads you want to learn. You know you get all that stuff right if you did anything anything that you wanted to accomplish okay. This is the way I figure it. PUT IT in perspective. If you did anything to if you just spent half an hour a day doing that okay you would achieve incredible heights stevie and I would take again. Well I would go one step behind that and that's a good one that you just came up with but also whatever your goal is talked to someone is already reached. That goal have a conversation because most people want to share and so I want to be an astronaut so I go on trying to get a hold of an astronaut. What do I do? I get some advice if like yeah so have you been Astra if you studied physics for half an hour a day fucking a couple months you'd be you'd be well on your way right. Yeah Yeah Yeah you'd be on Sputnik Steve I think about the countless hours. I spent playing hockey from say three years old to this very moment like I still play two three times a week all the time. Put into hockey. If I put it into something else you know. I have people in Ottawa and I need to tell Steve my sources who telling me. You're a little much when your plane men's hockey Zahren all the people have I talked to you. I do you ever play with warranty. Oh yeah yeah little serious out there a little too serious yelling at line changes. That's what I heard. Don't shoot. The messengers gave okay. I do not yell at line changes. I heard you're just going. Jesus Christ he takes it serious but you know it brings me onto some Steve. Because I play golf as you know and I want a new play men's hockey league and I I did this fantasy camp for years for fifteen years Grad. This fantasy camp were guys paid a bunch of money to come down on there and it's like a glorified stag in Vegas at the Balaj. Hotel world-class World Class. And you would think Steve. This is all L. Fund all the time. But there's always one or two arse holes okay who get on during the game and go fucking bananas with other guys okay. Check uh-huh smashed in the middle of the board. There was one guy was so seriously he wasn't invited back they wouldn't let them come back. Larry Robinson was one of the guests coach. You have to tune them up. He went so crazy easy. And I've told the story before we'll some guy started sticking Luc. Robitaille was one of the players started sticking them a little bit right the nicest guy in the NHL this Shimmy really is what you're playing here. Okay and he fucking. I looked stopped. You know he said what are you fucking doing air yeah. I'm a volunteer here. I came to have fun and the guy kept. Just you'd see the whites of his eyes. Steve when he got on the ice he was just like a frigging ogre when he got out there. Sure enough he did it again and went hard into the corner with Luke Luke stopped and said if I if I hurt myself here. Okay if I get hurt because you you okay I'm GonNa Carve your fucking is out. Okay turn to stick upside down. You know what the Blade Darren and the guy went to one you know whatever and then Luke Luke Tomahawks is three hundred dollars stick. He just took his the heel of sticking chopped guys stick in half and there's always always always wondered there guys. I play golf with. Who are no good? Okay no good and I think it's from watching TV. And I'm sure there's hockey players are like that too who are way too serious for their ability. Okay you must know guys and I know I know I know guys who like to get up there about twenty handicapped so if they break ninety. It's a pretty good day for them. Steve but they're going to start to line their putz up from both sides. Okay you know that guy out there the two or three practice swings. You don't have a repeatable Gulf swing. I don't also you don't even need to do this. It's GonNa be a lock if it goes in stop plum Bobby Plum Bombay where they hold the shaft. They just let it droop and I mean you gotTa know what you do that but some fairly guys. Okay let's regroup today Okay Eh. Before you go out there and lace up the blades was dial it back all right. Fine Fine Let's take a time when we return. We're just GONNA go ahead and determine the fate of every Ottawa senator free agents and that is after these words.

We're pleased to be joined joined by Greg Kennedy good friend of mine and he's been a career minor hockey coach in the Ottawa. Area hosted the grass roots minor hockey show on Tsn for a number of the years. And so I wanted to have greg on the Metaphor I was looking for here Greg. A lot of people go with the trade deadline the shopping metaphor four. But I I think the one I wanna go with and hello by the way I should. It's great to be back Steve. It's great and so the finishing the metaphor discussion Russian. The metaphor the grabs me about will read to talk about is two guys when they're in public school and they're trading hockey cards. I don't even know if kids trade great hockey cards anymore but on the recess trading hockey cards doing they got him got him need him thing as we look ahead to the trade deadline in which Ottawa Ottawa senators players should stay in which should probably be headed somewhere else. Is that an exercise exercise. Yeah absolutely I think it's going to be great so this we're plotting even schemes. So is there somebody right now where you say they they just like. I said that we should purge early. You know just take our hockey cards for certain players and just flick girls or something or just get rid of them and that first name comes to mind for me is Michael Barker Ufa by Oh God are we starting with Dr. Only I WANNA I WANNA deal with. Every I think we could purge him. Unrestricted free the agent. The the season if you can get a fourth or fifth round draft choice for him like God what highway robbery that would be but I I sure yeah okay we can trade him. I mean we've gotten rid of him unless a tool through all the U. F. as I guess but the next one I've got on my list is Vladislav new mess Niqab. I was very impressed with him when he arrived. Seems good skill but over the long haul I say to myself. I don't see a consistent. Enough compete level to bother upping his three point two five million dollars so he is not part of my plans for the coming season. I agree completely. You know when you get a new coach. Mid Season they fire the coach of the a new guy that honeymoon phase. Where they they play really well and you know win all go out but the team does well response under the new coach? I think that's what happened here with domestic off. You show up new scenery new coach new system and up raised minute supply every night and he looked good for the first two weeks. Didn't he sure did and it just hasn't I've been there over the long haul and And that's you need. You need guys who can compete on a nightly basis And I'm not saying one guy. That's a twitter for me that I'm not sure about out at the moment naked. Probably be swayed if you've got some awesome. Take on him and that is thirty year old Tyler Ennis who is all. Ufa wouldn't another one USA breath. Well okay. Let's let's understand one thing I for for your listeners. Here you and I are not in the dressing room right. We're not on the road with these guys. We're not team building activities with them. We're not social events we're not addressing room on the bench. We have no idea of the intangibles that some of these players may or may not bring right. We need to get that out in the open right away so it looks like from the outside that Tyler Ennis brings things that are needed. He brings a work at dickey's brings an energy each just. Seems like he's a good teammate. And if if you need those quality value those qualities which I would hope the senator do. That's a player you can. You can keep right for sure. And he's making eight hundred thousand dollars a year so he's not going to need much more than that to keep around do. Oh I think he's a guy that I want around when the unparalleled success years arrive. I don't know that he'll be part of your Stanley Cup solution but for another year or two. Do I think he's a guy you want in there. 'cause he seems like a good guy and he works hard every night consistently so okay we agrees. He's a bottom six. If not a bottom autumn three forward skill level wise. I would think he seems to get minutes on the power play here. I don't know that he's GonNa play the power play anywhere else initially honestly except maybe Detroit Jersey so he's playing his punching above. Wait let's say And I think that what he settles in in this team gets to those days of glory that are coming soon at a third line fourth line I e e may be able to contribute to. You never know you got a tough guy in Scott Sovereign Lebron. I still like having a tough guy in my lineup as we start to round out the. Ufa Ford's for the Ottawa. Senators Scott Sabir N- twenty-seven years of age seven hundred thousand dollars a year. What do you think of Sav? Rinse Future I honestly don't know I tried to figure that out. I obviously coach like some management like somebody could players obviously like them. They like having him around. I go back to the story that gets brought up all the time of the year that the sense play the Rangers in the play offs. Austin who was the idiot that was punching somebody around or rough somebody up like a moron. That was Brian Boyle. That's right with Brian Boyle and the next game. They dressed Chris. I kneel only played one shift and the players were thrilled. Oh yeah so that's a different. That's a different scenario. I'm going further back in the way back machine when it. It was Brian Boyle that was doing the rabbit punching Eric. Carlson in Matt Carpenter would come back in the next game and Phil Tanner Glass. You're talking about Christie. That's that's right that's right. Was Tanner Glass. It was the most recent ranger sense is an nealer hadn't played a lot. This was with Boucher. Who didn't like them didn't have a use for them but the buyers obviously loved him all talk about was that he played that night that he was dressing like a pregame talks and post game chats? All of the players were in agreement. At least the media I saw from it that they loved having him around and liked having him in the lineup. Everyone grows an inch. Yeah and I don't think he hurts you out there like he's he's going to okay. retrieving defenseman. From the other team is going to think twice is that sovereigns line coming out Because he will finish checks. He's not he's not like Connor mcdavid David but he's an okay. Skater by tough guys standards. Now I have no problem. He's a local guy and he seems to be well liked to have no problem. Bring him back as well because I think he's right. Yeah yeah tickets right like like like enters the tickets right. Let us look at hundred. Let us look at the biggest. Ufa for the Ottawa. Senators have that. It is going to be a conundrum. I mean I guess step one is knowing for sure whether Jj Pasha wants to come back You know in the if the money's maybe the money's not right Maybe wanted to go somewhere and win. He's already had a couple of tough years as an Ottawa. Senator maybe wants to win somewhere. What do you think happens with? Jj Pozo to me me. He's a third line center on. I apologize anyone who's insulted by that but on a good team he's probably your third line center so if you're going to bring him back for all of the other qualities that he possesses that we all know about either ship the maturity the keeping kids in line the example that he sets the work ethic Kapika shifts. All of those things you want. But what's the price for those things. Are you gonNA WANNA pay a third line center. I five million dollars. You're paying one now to play. Fourth Line at five million l think people are too impressed with that. It's three years from now when the unparalleled success comes uh-huh and he's a third or fourth lighter at five million I think. Get Him at four million three years for twelve million. Yeah I'm the same way it comes down to the numbers To yeah that's part of the numbers that the term erm all that because again. I think that If three years from now when you're a Stanley Cup contender. Jj Pasha's in your top. Six Year. Probably Probably Not Stanley Cup exactly. Yeah Yeah Agreement. On that I saw the question is in three years from now as they are. Maybe the Stanley Cup contender and and he's the third lung center. Then yet. That's a good team. And paying that guy you know somewhere between three and four mill to be a third line center that's perfect. It's in budget legit wise and he's still brings all the intangibles that we all know about but unfortunately does not looking at it in those terms like he wants his home run deal I would think. Of course she doesn't who can blame them but then the other side of the coin is your. You gotta remember that when when you're talking about a trades it's there's two types of players here right. There's the the player player where we know what he is. And then there's the player where we think he could be there bright. You're making a trade of player we know what. Jj Paseo is most teams. I think every team should know what. Jj Padua is. They're not gonNA play atop six so this idea of a first round draft choice. No you're not getting a first rounder. For essentially a third light center. He's going to a contender right. So we've covered the UF as it Ford. Yeah we've covered the UFA's as far as the sends go at Ford and we have three R F as I think that are notable slap ex probably back in and and just so cheap that they probably get a movie. You can still go down to the minors. And and all that. But Chris Tierney. Connor Brown. Anthony Do. Claire are all very interesting for different reasons. Wouldn't you think in that list too isn't he. Oh Yeah I forgot about Nick Paul. He's not on my list because he's on injured reserve right. Act Tonight Right. I think that see. Here's the here's the conundrum. Tyranny Patio I I think you only keep one make sense. Yup they're essentially the name player. One has way more speed. Obviously they both kill penalties. They're both a third align center. I both of them are more effective at center than on the wing. I don't you keep both of them and honestly I think you move. Whichever one gets you the better package tyranny and Paseo and this is where I would help? It would help for the like you said at the outset. This is where it would help if we were able to be in that room and see which which which guys in there holding court in which guys helping You know both socially and professionally all the young players on this team. That would play into this discussion but like every other member of the media. We don't have that. Yeah exactly and again though we're talking about we know what he is as a player and the senators nobody is. They're trying to trade these two guys somewhere for. We think this guy could be that at what they're looking for right there. I don't think you're trading a nobody is for what he is your trading and nobody is for a we hope that guy can work out or we think that guy's better than he is or in other words a vet for a prospect right. We you you know exactly what you're going to get from Christie Ernie from from gingy Pagil- from the other guys we. We're GONNA talk about here so it comes down to the role that play with you versus role they're gonNA play elsewhere and the role they're gonNA play elsewhere the role they're gonNA play for the buyer. What's going to dictate? The price are Connor Brown and Anthony declare coming to the table as our F- as this summer as guys that want to be paid like top six guys. What do you think well do Clare Short it and flashes ashes? I do Claire. I've been a little story of Brown have been a little bit disappointed. I thought it was scored more. I understand you're getting points but I thought he would have produced more in a goalscoring side side of things. I don't know that either of them is at any one of the two liaison it if this were a contending team are they both top six guys. I don't think so the thing about declare that you gotta ask yourself is is he. Just this year's rind single he's A. He's a flawed player who's producing because he's getting more minutes. Maybe a little less responsibility than he would if he was playing on a good team Anthony. Do There's planning a good team the expectation of his higher. His responsibilities more is minutes Are probably less. He's probably not playing with the best players. Would he still produce it same rate. Yeah and so much has been made of Dj Smith and his patients level. And that's really brought Out The offensive flair for Anthony Declares Ladas discussion about. He's got a home for that reason but will. Dj Smith be as patient with a player player. When the Stanley copiers the contention years? Like these Games right now. They don't matter so go ahead and let do Claire Make any defensive mistake that he wants sent him right back out there on tour to rally didn't do that because the Columbus blue jackets fancy themselves as Stanley Cup contenders and they had higher standards. Exactly the expectations are higher. The accountability level the expectation is more and any wasn't playing in a top ex role so his numbers aren't the same. He comes here just by skill alone. He's in the top six if not the top three so he plays with the better players he gets. I are play even kills penalties now but his his accountability. Woody is probably you know D. J. Smith old people accountable but the bottom line do compare him to single again is hockey sets his problem. Duke Declares Problem Elsewhere. I don't think was that people didn't like his attitude in his work at. I think everybody was just frustrated with them as a hockey player as far as ocoee sets goes. Yeah there's just so much untapped potential there the speed is there the shot is there and you think that any went through a run that in December that was just crazy Blackie at eleven goals in nine games but in the fourteen game since he hasn't scored once so you start thinking about the striking of the player when you compare Brown and declare I feel like okay if we decided to give it two or three year contract to Connor Brown. He doesn't necessarily have to play my top six. He can easily play easy. I like him. He's consistently one of the artist workers out there skates all day. I think it'd be fine no matter where you have them in the lineup for the next two or three years and as long as the price tags not ridiculous like he's looking for that top six money absolutely. That's a guy have back but I'm a real twitter when it comes to Anthony Declare. I don't know exact same way. Brownie Brown has much higher tactical awareness. He knows where to go what to do. And how to play the game with without the PUCK and level far superior to declare to declare but declare brings you a goalscoring hands that we hadn't seen Brown yet this year Despite the current slump a kid at least could vary puck once in a while. You'd like to think the Brown kids much. More consistent is is statistical numbers game by game week by week have been much better the ups and downs. That you've got now to declare and is there again. It's going to come down to money right. How much these guys go to war for sure and the other thing with declare I mean when you look at him? He's a sell high candidate. Potentially I mean if he just went to the the All Star game he had that run a lot of people were talking about him if he can go on a little run here in the next little while maybe get a stock back up a little as well. I still think he's pretty. Well regarded around the league. Like because there's been so many media stories about their their but hell while he's finally found his way in Ottawa. Good for him. Maybe somebody takes a flyer on him. Endow gives you something interesting at the trade. Hey deadline because that's the art of being general manager in the League or at any level selling high figuring out what you have and pricing out appropriately and the home run here. Here is the to second rounders. You got single could possibly do that for declare. I don't think so. You got two seconds. Ed declared you not physical Yup. I don't think you're GONNA hit that. You're not gonNA quite get that for declare but if you can get a second and somebody that can play. Yeah I think he's also can. You're not just qualify them. I just qualified. You clearly need to full. or He's a he's yeah we've moved into the discussion with turning around and declare for sure. Yeah so you can qualify him and keep him if you want. But I'm just talking in terms of you know I in sell high scenario like what is on your when you're trying to figure figure out what he is is he. That guy that went on this crazy run probably not but is he gonNa go through these long stretches as it's going to be the new. Anthony declare moving forward. He's going to go through this dry crazy. Yeah I comes down to the U.. What whatever the package coming back? If it's good I'm doing beauty. Okay let's move on out of the defense where you skipped Dick Paulo. Oh Yeah you still WanNa talk about Nick Paul. He's just not on my list so keep forgetting here but his Nick Paul J. G. Tasio two point. Oh Oh wow I certainly I mean he brings a lot lose. Pack Joe Fillers minutes with Paul Interesting. I hadn't even thought of the two in the same breath but he certainly brought up his game where you feel comfortable using them in any defensive situation. He's got a tremendous shot. His skating is improved a lot. Yeah he certainly an option and he's not going to bring you the intangibles but e can be your long term number three center. Yeah maybe I don't hate that. I don't hate that. That's that's an internal decision pro scouts. That's what they get paid for. We we get nothing. Well money's always an object with this organization obviously yes and with Joe if he's looking at you know four four and a half million dollars that's another consideration as you're trying to stockpile assets if you can get a first for J. G. POD and not have to pay that particular position on your team for four and a half million dollars. Give that money to Paul like you probably get him for a third of that though. Yeah Yup and then you've got an you've got between tyranny and Paul you've got a third light right center right on defense. We s four U. F. as that I have unless I'm missing somebody else on the interest rate on the injured list. But he's not he's not a free agent right now but he's got another year. Yeah so you got hanes. E you've got bore. Viet skied Danilo. And Cody Gullible. I think we can all move move on him from him. He's just a placeholder indeed but I would say that all three are worth discussion. Mark Bore Viet Ski being the biggest name of the three. Because he's had this great breakout year. Talk about a guy sacrifices every shift. It seems like he's getting injured by a POC or an errand sticker elbow every single shift. Heart on sleeve seems to be loved that dressing room only make one point two million dollars. My feeling is what's the harm in resigning in for a couple of years each days no matter what that simple sign up like stop kicking around like I understand and they wanted to wait and consider their options Yadda yet but it's gotten to a point now where it's sounds like it's almost insulting to some of these guys the Sirkin again right and Bortles a guy you keep keep a one and a half for crying out loud maybe you gotta go as much to two years one and a half to two years for three meal it done. What about Hanes Hanes he gets you second made maybe a second probably a third? I like he's not going to be required next season. How's that to me in other place holder this year and any endlessly believed that in a case a hazy and to a certain extent Brown and definitely Ns? I think the three of them were were sort of place holders. Life's just get some some veterans in ear some good guys in the room Yadda Yadda and then move them along. I tasty sure I think hanes. He's one of those guys that he's fine he's not gonna be. I never would think of him as elite nor do I think him as a plug back there but what I look. The replace ability factor cost over replacement kind of thing and he's three and a half million dollars. I'm pretty sure if peer Dory on just basically go shopping he can find another run Hansie for that number or less I think yeah you got seven defense but in the system who could step in your okay without. Yeah Yeah and get you something good. Then I'll develop that right. Yup Yeah see you you see me think Paschel might be the WanNa get the most. I think might be the one digit of really. I really do I just whether he does or not. I don't know but from from what a player of we know what he is is a solid steady. He's fishing he's accountable. He makes players better. Whoever plays with does better? He's the one they call them. The course he stat darling or the analytics darling but he actually looks like he is pretty good. There's been other analytics. Darlings looks like we're Gosh. Wasn't that the guy who was the beginning Olympic Darling but actually no no. He really is terrible. Anyway I'd like to see him stay. I can find a way to do that all right. So as I'm you got a lot more for him. If you trade them I think he can bring what you need and the last one is to wrap this up. Our goddamn Needham. Got Himself in about the Ottawa Senators as we storm toward the trade deadline. Here with Greg Kennedy Craig Anderson he is a UFA USA. He is thirty eight years of age. And I think he'll be thirty nine in. May we share the same birthday so I happen to know a very nice. Yes not but he is a UFC. A while. Let you have first First Dibs on this one. What about Andy? It's his choice. You go to him and say any. Do you want me to move your not. Andy says yes please. Then you say okay. Do you want to go contender or do you want me to just move you somewhere to it so I can get the best thing I get to help his team and of anti he says I'd like to go to a contender and be a back up. Then you do it. I think he's earned that right and you want to establish some credibility with your players in the address room for management. You want understand that you're part of the family. We look after you in all those sorts of good good things that I think he just go home and ask him what he wants and you give it to them simple. I love that But I wonder but but I I would wonder because I what I had a different answer but I'm changing it now to steal your answer. I like your the one I was going to give. But let's let's agree but what number or what. What asset what level of Offer would you say. I'm I'M GONNA go ahead and just crumpled up this nice idea that we just had like. What if what if somebody says? Here's a first rounder. I never happen on. It'll never happen. I know that but you have have to. You have to be Nimble enough to say if the offer is right you still look at it. The best. You'RE GONNA get the best I would think is a third I. I think it's probably more like a force right now. Somebody comes along and offers a fourth. He just no no thank you and even if they offered the only way and he goes anywhere is in a package giveaway. He goes anywhere where you get. A noticeable turned is in a package. Like there's no deal where it's just him for something where it's GonNa be. Wow and knock our socks off and to train them for a fourth is an insult or even a fifth or six is an insult to him. Unless you want to go. I like that on his own terms. I think that's a that's a fine idea. He's earned it. He's been here. He's putting time he loves it here. He just said something the other day they talk to him and he talked about how much he likes the market and the fans and the people and he loves being here. Lastly he's not a free agent though many fans would like it and and it was a good bit of news this week where he has Gotten past the NHL PA player Assistance Program. He's by practicing with the team. I'm speaking of course. So Bobby Ryan Gone. He's got a couple of years. Left on that contract and June fifteenth is going to be a bio window so does this organization given its frugal. Ownership have any appetite at all for a bio to potentially. Do you think to what end. Why are we buying somebody out like this in traditionally for the last two or three years has been looking to take on money so that they can get in the cap floor and they can gain assets by doing it? What is the benefit the team to buying them out so that the fans don't have to watch him play uh-huh with with all due respect? I just all right. That's a personal. That's the personal bias. Granted but I understand you absolutely have to get to a cap floor and he helps you do that. But you're also looking to sell hockey tickets. And I don't know what Bobby Ryan will have left in the tank you cruise to the end of this year. You're looking at a great great draft. Pick you want to you know. Go as low as you can and and so. It's all good. You know whoever wants to play for this team for the rest of the year. Fill your boots but starting next year I think this is an organization. That's going to want to have at least in the back of its mind for the first couple of months the idea of at least potentially competing for a playoffs spot. I would agree and But I I do think they'll keep them the salary around Bernanke third year. Maybe doesn't hurt. What's the long term benefit keeping gummer buying them out? Now you buy them out now it gives you more money because you do have of Kachuck Bathour Cin. Harburg Guo Landon coming up next year. I think so. You're GONNA need the money there especially Kachuck can battiston right. No doubt so yeah. You're going to need that money so you need that money. You need to cap space now or do you need the ordinary day. Non Gap states. Now I gotTA problem with buying about without not at all. I'm just wondering if what the benefit is. What's the reason behind it right at the reason is there's other players here that we wanna play then? Yeah you buy them up that it was a treat. I enjoy doing that. We should do it again real soon. A- We did. We did a show a full show together last summer. And I waited way too long to have you on again Greg.

Today's episode teams and athletes. You'll love to hate give me a tour of the Taj Mahal Hockey. James I'm your host. Steve, worn this is Jim Jerome Things James. Stevie I'm okay. I'm okay. Quite a production. So Before the show as you know I'm not superstitious, but but I gotta have things set up right? Okay, obviously some sort of some sort of nervous sting. Okay. So there's actually there's actually six or seven things that need to happen before you hit record. Okay right and. We had them as. You used to be. You'd say to jam or why do you always start in then have to get up and get a coffee exactly. Well, because I it needs to be fresh full and hot. Okay. So I can't get a ten minutes before it won't be it won't be it won't be hot. Okay. So then you acquiesced to that. Okay. All right. So you understand. Okay, it's time for the hang on. Copy. It's one workout live with. It's fine. Okay. But now there's about six. Okay. So it's the coffee needs to be done. Okay. The furnace needs to be turned off. All Right Stevie The pack of smokes needs to be put on the table Hey which I did today. Okay. So I got the coffee as Oh. Hang on hang on it didn't turn the furnace off. So we have to stop then I did that hang on I got to get the package darts. Okay. We got that and you're like, okay, right? Yeah. No hang on. I gotTA get the Ashtray Steve Okay I. Got I got the Little Tin Bowl full of water okay I. GotTa get that and they're like, Hey, can we go oh no get the lighter okay I forgot. Yes these are all the ceremonial things. This is all the structured stuff that happens every daily gentleman, and that's so that's enough and then meanwhile there's like the stuff beyond your control like yesterday you through in the dagger to go to the bathroom now. or though the some guy named Roddy just popped in and like just randomly coming through your house Jimmy what what the Hell's going on over there. I don't. I got an open door policy. Then now the other you're finding. On. I. GotTa Get I gotTa, get the candle I need the scented candle because I'm smoking in my house now it's winter I swore I, wouldn't and. So those six or seven things which you would think can you just do all those Jim and then let me know what I can log on the. Record. So I really think you really think ascended can't candles going to help your house any. Cigarettes you're going to smoke in this show. It does I got the triple I went to bed bath and beyond place. Went shopping with my chick and she loves those places and and her house smells really good. I go into her house on my. Smells like poetry. You know this is unbelievable. You know. How this is unreal. This is nice. Yeah. Just the candles so caught twenty-five fish they cost you stevie, but at the three weeks. Okay. Your Wife All about the candle she must be. Oh Yeah. Yeah there's one there's one. There's once he gets every year at Christmas and just become the smell of Christmas. It's the smell of like how a campfire might smell in the wintertime. It's unbelievable all that. Yeah. I got the flannel even get when it says. There's a thousand candles you can get. Steve. Flannel like. I get that get finally. Get this melting. Yeah. So anyway, it works TV it works. Okay. Even when you blow it out, Steve You blow it out it lingers. Well. Then it becomes a Potpourri or something or what do you call it What do you call this? The sticks that just sort of smoke forever. Sage sage sticks or something I don't know Cunning Design Steve By the candle company. It's it's county linger. Off. On That one. Stevie. Going to take a lot there by the sound of. Hiller and Around the. The linger. Guy Say had an old guy moment today. By the way I know that usually this portion of the show is devoted to your old guy moments. I had a rare one today. It started the other end of the spectrum you think back to when you're nineteen and the excitement of going to the liquor store and. Doesn't ask for I D or something like that or the first time you get into a bar without the masking Friday big day. Yeah. So this is kind of the. Exit sort aside, the polar opposite of that level of excitement. So I I went to a new barber today. Liked him. He's great and everything. But we hadn't before. So you get the Cape on and everything Tux that thing in around the collar so the hair doesn't get back and so immediately into the small talk goes. So do you work or are you retired and I was like, oh. This is literally the first time in my entire life or anybody suggested that I might be retired based entirely on the look of me. Right. Yeah. I got that hurt that hurt. I got the I. Get it. I get it because I forget where it was. Maybe Hawaii. Last. August. To shop for groceries because we as like a Condo we rented. And and running through there and realizing that you're going to. Hawaii. You've never been there but you you'll hopefully you'll get there one day but the price of food is exorbitant STI OF GROCERIES OCCA- it's off the map. For whatever reason I guess it's not like this is this is an island. That that doesn't get a lot of action. You know it's okay. It's a state in America, but the loaf of bread is twice what you pay anywhere else. For example. So you're six seven bucks. So I remembered by these grosses Holy Jesus forget the exchange I'd soon as I get there, I don't deal with exchange folks anymore. Okay. I don't go. That's twenty bucks all. Yeah but that's you know that's Twenty eight dollars Canadians I. I don't do that. There it's that currency. That's what we're dealing with. However. Whenever during the Grocery Shopping Holy Jesus you know how much? Hundred and ten dollars which I'm usually good Stephen Guessing what the the TAB will be for the groceries run through. You know I'm always within five percent I've been shopping my whole life. I thought this is a sixty dollar touch here no one hundred ten. And then it's kind of saying as to the girl Holy God is Inter a lot of money here she goes. You should have waited till tomorrow sir? Why Seniors Day. Aussie. That's exactly how I felt to. Say over sixty five, you get over what over how old? Sixty five. Yeah. I. Feel Your Pain Buddy. All right by the ways, your phone blowing up right now with photos from Russ Court and let the golf course Y'all Ruskin Russ can step back candy inaugural. When our weather is going completely south not in a good way. Look at the last one he just sent the fairway looks like it looks like a eight lane race track the way they've cut the fairway. Zozo championship or something is happening invitational thing but it's all the big gunners. It's all top guys in the world. This was an event that taggers started hosting years ago. He may still be the host whatever that means whatever that means it's a it's a four day PJ tournament. I ninety guys there's probably no cut. and it's at Sherwood, which is the famous golf course were Wayne Gretzky lives in place Sherwood is in a place called West Lake California where a ton of celebrities live. It's quite it's quite the hike from downtown. La It's it's probably a forty five minute drive north west La and wrestlers to what's that. Lives there. Russ lives there too. He's been there a long time. A so you've heard US talk about it a lot golf versus two hundred and fifty granted join. Sure what but but lots of up to kind of hide. So there's like Justin Timberlake's goto place up there and WHO's The guy? Does hosts American idol for years. The Old Ryan seacrest Ryan seacrest is up there mark. Wahlberg might be a ton other guys selleck Tom Selleck I've seen around kick around a bunch of occupiers. Lenny. Dykstra. Is. Up there what a story speaking that check check out the Lenny dykstra story. GUYS BEEN IN JAIL Steve Been in I've heard a lot of his story because Howard stern has a whole bunch of characters on his show. He calls them the wack pack 'cause they all have their those call them quirks and he brings them on and they're entertaining in their way and leading dykstra is. He's almost pseudo member of the wack pack because is so out there and outrageous and yeah, he did do a little time. Yeah, he he bought. Wayne's house went. So Wayne when the first house Wayne bought or second? House Wayne bought there was big twenty five Thousand Square Foot House. Okay. The called the Taj Mahal. Is the nickname for. And it's it's it's on mountain peak. In the middle of the golf course. So, you really have this three six. It's just it's just opulence beyond belief you know and Lenny dykstra bought that he bought that house because Lenny Dykstra made a zillion dollars in the car wash business. He did other things that along the way. He's come up with a book. Okay. This is why I saw him the other day and I don't know if it was an old a two year old thing that maybe that book was that old I was was probably on Youtube or something was looking at an interview that a sports guy doing with but he ended up buying that house from way. and. Then Wayne is now back in that house, you bought it back from. So he went to roll on that lent Lenny bought it but that hosts any went broke and couldn't afford it. So we put it up on the market again so I don't I don't know where he lives. Now if he's but he's an interesting story, he's been through thick and thin man A. Sudden Wayne, do well on that real estate shuffle when all was said and done wait I've known I've known waiting for thirty plus years and he's only bought and sold houses because they because they wanted to not because they needed to like get. Of course much bigger. Do you need when you had a paltry eight thousand square feet your first? And You know a big house is three thousand square feet. Yeah. They just said well, let's go back into it. Let's win and every time you made money. I like when he moved to L. A. Lived on the famous Mulholland drive, you've heard it movies all the time and we have to sell it to move to a different area and made. Made money on that one he it's pure lucky set. So what beyond beyond the actual price tag in the size of things at his house like when you wander through the Taj Mahal, which I love by the way is a name right when you wander through that place. Like water maybe a couple of two or three things that just. Beyond what I imagined like, what are maybe two or three things that make your jaw drop as you wander through that place. good great question because there's a number of it. So the property itself. Has the main building Steve. Sounds like a complex being. The main one is twenty, five thousand. Square feet. There's a bridge from that house that goes across the. Four five or six car garage though like. that's a separate building, but there's a bridge that goes over to that garage and above that as an apartment a that building. Now back behind that is a tennis court with with another. House there overlooking the tennis court. This is on the same property. Okay. They use that as a gym. The way on the other side of the property is a guest house. Okay. So there's one two, three, four, four separate buildings on the property itself. Okay. The dining room, for example. What your dining room, you could probably put a leaf in that table Stephen Getty people around. You I'm guessing. Whatever your normal. Mine mine if I had to. I. GotTa. I gotTA Open dining room off my kitchen I could probably get seven or eight people in their. Their their dining room holds thirty five people. Out. There's three separate circular tables of twelve. There's There's There's there's nine bathrooms in the joint. There's a there's something like twenty, one televisions throughout the place. There's a there's a movie theater which people go. Yeah. Okay. People call it a movie theater, but it's really just a rumpus room with with a big screen TV no no. No, it's a movie theater. Okay. With twenty five seats that recline that are in a row with popcorn. dolby sound surround all that. You know it's a full on deal. I always thought that was kind of staggering twenty-five. What what he? He ever had twenty five people in there. I don't know I. Don't you know the kids the kids are I mean this kids are growing outright tie just got married his Paulina's married of course, the Dustin. Two kids at home Emma who's I don't know she must be seventeen or eighteen now. And and she's the big tennis player right? Big Tennis player. Yeah really good. Really good tennis player and Tristan is a really good Golfer. He's gone to pepperdine on a scholarship I. Don't know what's happening. There was school. But he's real good. So they live at home but. The. The funny thing that would stick out for you for sure is of we walked around the house every everything, the the the decor is through the roof. Okay. She Rolls Pretty. Good? Janet. You know from from the antique. The Room I stay in that house when I go my room. In fact, they call Jim's room Steve Kerr. Gyms. Room. They still call Jim drew me when I'm not there s Jim through. The poster. A bed frame poster. POSTER, bed, frame is. The knobs on the end of its deavere, probably like a thousand bucks, knob right. He take for me to be talking like this right now but. And then what what would stand out is where everyone hangs out Steve Okay so you twenty five k. here of square footage. is in the Seven Hundred Square. Foot. Kitchen. Okay. So when you come back to the, there's always lots on on lots of staff no running the house and then looking after things but but everyone crowds into a table that holds six and there's always like. There's always people around. tweet out that stuff It looks like it's a really fun atmosphere the way they. Cram themselves in together even though they've got thousands of square feet to spread out in, right? Yeah. S Families Do. Yeah. Anyway it's. It's really hard to explain. You know I could explain to you. I would understand if you said to me, your neighbor has a five thousand square foot house I can picture that I know what that looks like. You know six thousand begins kind of staggering six look at this joint right there's four bedrooms. A Monster House multi, it'd be vaulted ceiling Steve Maybe two staircases. If it was a two story, you know there might be a front and back and all that. Sure. But twenty five, thousand square feet the Hallway Steve I pasted off one night. So it's one hall that goes from one side of the House right down the middle of the house right to the foreign. Fifty yards or something. I remember watching yards. Yeah. Fifty Yard Long. I pasted off I. Think I put it on twitter. Walked it off one day. Fifty. What about like hockey memorabilia is Wayne keep some of his. Probably would be able to put together the most amazing collection of hockey souvenirs of any player. A couple of things it's funny. You bring that up. So he has a warehouse of stuff. and. That originally was in Phoenix. It may because he of course, he lived in coach there and and I've been to that place. That's where he had an office there and his manager had an office there, and then they warehoused a bunch of wind stuff. Big Warehouse. Yeah, it's big. Yeah. It's probably I, don't know it's like. It looks like a home depot in behind all the. Choice of shelves and shelves of stuff what people don't realize true is he has a number of things that he hasn't released. Of. Of for example, you might recall there's a pretty cool photo that got a lot of action with Wayne Mario, lemieux, and Gordie Howe walking together across an outdoor rink, an outdoor ice skating, not not with ring for. There in the Bush almost walking through there right I don't know if you can look that up. You'll see it's pretty cool photo of. The three of the greatest players, right? Yeah. So he's got more stuff like that. I think that? No one's ever seen that. That that he might release one day or not and certainly not about the money of it but it is a business. Right? There's there's you can order stuff from Wayne Gretzky. Warehouse is now where he did but but the two other significant places where his most highly valued. Personal collection is. Is it in his house in Brantford in the basement with Walter. Yup. that. Place of course is. And the other one was his restaurant in Toronto where. Super Cool Shit super cool. Stuff of game were jerseys of Olympics and world championships. Skates from. You know the the last game he played I think those skates were in the restaurant, but he shut the restaurant downright it closed down this week. Or this this last month. And a friend of mine Brian Aaron Worth from a company called framework is in their gathering all that up to store it. Right to keep and so. There's not much in this house actually there's not much not much stuff in this. House. Well maybe going to grab something for me because you know how well I I. Treat. Wayne. Gretzky Paraphernalia. Bag Keep it keep it away from Michael That's the key. That's the key to it. All have to get my own little warehouse in the backyard. Anyway. That's neat. That's neat to hear about that that that really takes the good listener inside on that stuff because. I mean, there's that's a cottage industry right going back to the old Robin Leach law other rich and famous right and that's that's the most famous hockey player of all time into kind of hear some behind the scenes stuff. That's cool I'll give you something else interesting about that. So. Fine and Dandy right to say, Oh, my God, what kind of stuff does this guy? Have you know because the thing about a Wayne Gretzky or a Michael? Jordan. Or a Tom Brady or Roger. Federer. Or move for that matter or. I don't know who who you know. Willie mays all these guys is everything they touch becomes collectible. Sure everything. Okay from. equipment. Of course right equipment. But but here's a car that he sat in. Here's here's a seat that was his his father sat in when he came to the rank. Here's. Here's his Coffee Cup that he drank out of. His a piece of gum member that Visa Yeah. To that's two of the most absurd. chewed gum was Barry Bonds and then there was also. On ebay a vial of Elvis's sweat. What that exactly. But yeah, they're that kind of stuff out there. Right. So what happens with that Steve Okay so so now who knows what who knows what that's worth? Okay. Who knows what? Grabbing a dinner plate from Wayne's houses worth of someone's stolen. And said I was at this function grab thicket and we're going to auction it off. You know. So with that, those Steve. So you got a very valuable industry here and brand in the Guy Wayne Gretzky with that comes a lot of scamming. Okay. A lot of people putting stuff out there that. That that says it's authentic and it's Wayne Gretzky and it's it's a it's a big problem. It happens all the time and the reason I know this is In. Fact Wayne was here and then we shot down to Branford for his Golf Tournament that his dad was Walter Gretzky classic and Wing Wing showed up one year and I was with him and I was GonNa Mc the GIG and they had a silent auction. Imagine, the lineup for this silent auction Steve Okay of people who aren't even in the tournament trying to bust into the clubhouse, right? Okay. Because many of the items were signed by certainly by Walter but but a lot by Wayne and he has a full-time guy that he pays. A lawyer that looks after trying to try to police people coming out with with duplications of stuff and right. So I went to the side of thing I was with his brother Glen and we were walking I said, let's go to the auction stuff because I'm I got to promote it right I'm I'm emceeing the GIG right so you know you've done these right don't forget forget over here. We need the money for I hated doing those. Yeah. Hated doing it to buy we walked along and. This is what Glenn is doing like this. Look at this he goes that's a fake. That's not his that's not his signature. That's a fake. That's. Fake fake fake fake. Might be faked. That's real. So it's like. Yeah. Yeah. The guys it's The They Duplicate his autograph. Annual. Do Do I mean when you say I think about a Guy Gretzky's rookie card and I, sold it a number of years ago for like six hundred bucks some guy in l. a. and it's probably worth two three times that. But this I said so little faith because counterfeiting got kept getting so more and more common and to me if you unless you've got like the real. Upper. Deck started putting like Hologram logos and like just like cash. It was hard to replicate. But those early ones like Gretzky rookie or seventy, nine, eighty peachy and then before. To me, it's just cardboard and ink and to me that would be if somebody who is really into it and wanted to go to town, it would be almost impossible to spot these fakes. and. Then you mix in the autograph should shut it down but not everybody knows exactly what Wayne Gretzky's autograph looks like right, right and I'll tell you what my son did. My Son Jake, my middle my Middle Child Jay Chou's now twenty one. He was a really good basketball player and so is my youngest guy why they both played High School Basketball Jake, a captain actually of his team on giant high school three thousand kids. Super Good player and You could go Michael Jordan had basketball a youth basketball camp in Santa Barbara California, which is north of. La and. Jake sort of brought this up I'd love to go to the Michael Jordan camp rate and on it is Michael shows up every day right and I'm like that. That'd be great son but I just don't have the twenty, two thousand dollars to send you. Okay and he said it's not it's like eight hundred bucks. To go to this camp so and it was real. So both my boys went to this three day camp that a week law three day camp. Jordan into it. I would imagine it'd be like really hard to get into that still like when it doesn't cost that much I would have thought there'd be. A difficult thing going into that thing. Yeah I sort it. I said well absolutely and and off they went. Down there and spent three days at this camp and the it was a riot Jordan showed up every day and sometimes for fifteen minutes sometimes he played basketball with them. Shot baskets you know and. At, the end every kid got a picture taken with Michael, Jordan? He sat down with them all and my kid. got a pair of Air Jordan shoes and got Michael Jordan to sign them. So Jake has this. Cool Pero en worn. White Nike Shoes signed by Michael Jordan. And someone offered him five thousand bucks for them. Attempting. He kept him. He kept them. Don't let don't let don't let his uncle anywhere near them based on your brother's behavior with some of the stuff you've given him. All. Over those I'm not I didn't say that to pitch them but I don't know maybe sell them if you want some Michael, Jordan signed. Like issues. Let me tell. You know welcome to the. From my shed.

For the most successful now he's been hurt I think he's just coming back but what a runny was on right with back to back PGA's. And US Open Right. Doesn't win that much but he just wins majors to US opens in a row to PGA Championships in a row and the funky thing is he has seven PGA tour. Wins. and. More than half of them are majors for major championships. Unbelievable right people and but for some reason. He did an interview. you know about their, you know asking him about the how how do you? Equate your success here. But what's what's going on? How do you? What are you waiting to right? He goes play golf man you know I don't practice much. If you ever GonNa see me swing a club it's. Because tournament not on a range right? I just want this. Food aid. I on to ally let's be honest it's a lie you can't be that good and just play games. That's the mark of guys like me weekend hackers like I don't WanNa if I only got X. amount of time in the course of week if I have time I, want to play around and yes, I have that same attitude I don't WanNa practice I don't WanNa take lessons I wanna go play yeah that. So that's the mark of a hacker. There's no way kept his that good with a practicing and hitting a million balls. Right. So anyway I it just I just. Jumped on the wagon there with everyone else going I. Hate this guy. because. Most guys Steve would. Be Look at half of it, they would say to hard work and the and a big percentage of it if they're humble enough would say you know you need to be lucky man. You really do in the game of golf. And even in some other sports, you know there's a certain amount of luck you know that. BURKS Kaplowitz four majors. In the same in an small window there when he's top of the world and you go to play against him and he shoots eighty or shoot seventy-five when he's supposed to shoot sixty five, you're lucky you're lucky that brooks went back. And you know. So there's a bunch of, but there's none of that with that guy, you know none of that would that guy and I immediately hated him. That really what is going because I'm really good. You know I'm really good right and then that inspires nobody that that really makes a fan of no one people who talk about how good they are or how much money they make that inspires absolutely no one some of the other athletes that I dislike I think about conor McGregor in m a that guy just seems like I know that a lot of it is he's a human version of click. Bait. Just for attention but I think that that just. behaving. Like a punk constantly. And just seeing him in some of the prefight news conferences I dislike that guy a ton and couple of others might include unlike the Washington nationals because well, they are my Montreal Expos have feel like they. They stole something from me. Yankees, I dislike because of their pedigree, they always seem to win and Montreal grown to dislike Montreal because even though I grew up a fan of Montreal the haves. A- grew disenchanted for years and years disliked them because they always seem to win and their fan base. At such swagger, they're always in your face about their championships and we never and then now they annoy me because. They're really not relevant anymore they haven't. They haven't won a cup in what twenty, seven years, and so you know that's That's the annoying thing. There's the fans remain with swagger even though the Club itself is an also ran and they're not close to winning another Stanley Cup anytime soon. So I find that annoying. In that conversation as well and in the NFL to guys who aren't athletes bill. Belichick and Jerry Jones they can just go away anytime. Bill check you don't like bill. No. Disliked the way he behaves when he deals with the media I think the spotlight has faded from that guy's career. You know say ten years from now he's well into retirement. He sees some of his old news conferences I. Think he's GonNa probably regret that and say she's Pretty much an asshole. I don't mind. Bill. Chuck Hockey Wise. Wayne fucking brutal. That guy's gotta go. Any final thoughts today. James, before we go. Stevie. I don't like to go down the gross road very often. Really Yeah I don't like doing it. You don't have to hear.

To our patriotic members who were awesome with US assume called last week today on the Shell Jim gets a big reminder that no matter how happy they appear on the outside. No one really likes being roasted or being the off jokes. Kansas City chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mino manno in beer pong against host malone. Star today talking a little bit above the Ottawa Senators, and the possibility that they might be changing up their uniforms and their logo. When you think of marketing, obviously, it's money right that they want to do it. And endear the fans with with a bunch of different stuff in choices. Probably the most sold logos TV an probably I'm probably right on. This is got to be the new. York Yankees okay. The pinstripes, the very simple ny right as is that that logo I don't know to be number one, but it be close. Yeah, okay. The amount sold right would be through the roof you know. You see it all the time, right? You see people wearing New York. Yankees all the time hats caps, and when you look at it, it's it's a really simple local. Right it's very straightforward. Jersey Jersey's are really straightforward. Right when people were people don't wear baseball jerseys like they do hockey's, but it's kind of tells you something like all these years all these years that that that that logo is stands out there now listen. There's twenty million people live in New York City, but but it's around the world around the world, and so I'm not big on them. I'm not big on the on the busy jerseys Stevie. I'm not big on it. You know I like I like I. Like it simple. I. Like it simple. I mean what what what was aside from Ottawa. What's Your Most Favored Jersey? CHICAGO. Kinda cliche. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah me, too. I think Chicago's right up there. I was like Boston the be. The. Original six are all great. Exception of the leafs. Yeah, although that's a great local. I. It's hard to say that. Well they went back to their old one. And that's what sends. Fans are suggesting that the Ottawa senators do the leafs. Couple of years ago, decided to rework that block leaf logo that they've had a pretty much since the seventies. And they reworked at a couple of years ago and kind of went back to that pre expansion. kind of I don't know more of A. Jagged Leaf for lack of better term. My favorite Steve is the old. For Auto. That's my favorite. That's my favorite I love the uniform itself. What's that I definitely love the uniform like the Jersey I. Just I just can't get past and I know owes got a great history. That's the original senators back in the you know the early part of the nineteen hundreds war. However it just I can't get past the. Leading with the Chin of putting something on your Jersey that looks like a big zero. Well I don't like the. We by the way we would never be able to have this discussion if we were working for the broadcaster of the sense. Because I never did like the Trojan. Never was big on it whether it'd been varying versions of it like the early days one. That one with the is a lot less sort of a red swoop like the like the guard on a skill saw. In those early nineties. Renditions than they had one that they came along with I. Don't know why you go to the Stanley. Cup final and you decide to. I'm jumping ahead. I ninety seven. They went with the that kind of black swoop across a Red Jersey that one always struck me as as a bad look, and not a very good logo, which they turned to as well and then in oh seven. They pretty much took on the jerseys that they generally still have today. Now may embarrass myself here. So when you do, Jerseys Steve Okay, so. Your logo. Your logo should represent what the name of the team is. Okay, so Toronto. Maple leafs Stevie. Maple Leaf. Winnipeg jets jet. Okay. Edmonton oilers oil drop. Okay, what what ducks gotTa Duck? Was a senator of of fighting Trojan. Yeah. That's always been. Historically incorrect I mean the guy. Out of the sends uniform is essentially and whereas a senator is somewhat, you'd more likely see with one of those laurels around his head and wearing a toga. Yeah, so it it just. You. Know Kuker! There's a cougar. Panther there's a panther. Whatever whatever else the go through a million teams right that makes sense recalled the cougars. Who put the Fox on the Jersey what? That doesn't work here. Okay, we need A. Third. That's a great idea. We're going to confuse the shit out of people speaking of. Speaking of logos with Fox is not to have a sort of a off. The page dalliance here, but my hometown of Richmond on of told this before they've got a logo that says Richmond and has got a big smiling, grinning Fox lying on top of it, and you're saying Fox and Richmond well the only connection to Fox and Richmond is the Duke of Richmond like about. The Duke of Richmond. He visited and they named the town after him but while he was there, he was bitten by a Rabid Fox which killed him a few weeks later. So like why would you celebrate that? With the with the addition of a big grinning Fox liquorice chops. I. Never understood that yeah! Anyway that's so I'd never I never? I never got it. You know I never really understood it the. Were called the sends, but we're going to go with this with this Trojan. So. What do you like, so? I guess I never liked the name you. Oh! I love the Old Right Fraud Ottawa there we go. That's the the team the Ottawa Sense Yup. You got a couple of over Shin's. You've got the black mainly black with red and white stripe or more of a cream, colored stripe than white, and you've also got the other. Oh, where Red Jersey and a silver ole with redden or with a black and white stripe. Which of those do you like better? I like the. I like the the white background. The white white with the red and black stripe underneath deal. Yep As opposed to the Red Jersey. Absolutely, love that look and I could I could live with the Oh i. be one hundred percent okay with that, but sounds like everybody, and this sounds like what they're looking for. Because people on social media been clamoring for this kit for years, and that's a return to those early nineties. maybe some mucking around with the logo to modernize it, because I had a really liked the early logo that much me. If you look at the face on the logo, it looks like he's got like a not a nose, but a chicken beak he. It looks like something that I. Don't know it just looks all imbalanced. That big red brush on the top of the century, and it's not really connected to the helmet and I. It just looks awful to me. I like the I. I want the notion of the I I've seen one floating around out there. That's basically a modern version of that same look. I'd like to see that and those early nineties wants particularly ones. They wore from ninety five to ninety seven. Where you have the white band on the sleeves behind you're kind of in of the numbers I'd like that one too as far as their black, so I wouldn't mind seeing them. Go back to the early nineties, and it sounds like that's what do. If. You look it up I know what you're talking about. The first the first logo ninety two ninety three. That funny looking. Brush the red brochure on the back of the. So if I was going to practice what I preach stevie again. So I would look at that logo and said okay. The team's going to be called. The Ottawa Martians from Bugs Bunny's. Okay That's. that. Makes Sense? Yeah Yeah. Some people. Supposed to be heard, shattering boom. Yeah That's actually what Patrick Louis more on his goalie mask. back in the day when the we're going good in the early tooth. Yeah, okay, yeah, so Marvin the Martian from bugs bunny. Definitely people have made that connection before including Patrick Lane Anyway. It's going to be a it'll be unveiled some time between now and the draft and There was a report that came out yesterday from the athletic. That suggested that it was a done deal that they're going to go to. Some variants of those early nineties looks so. We'll keep an eye on that now. The story I wanted to touch on was Patrick Mahomes. Off, the pager here. That'd be the Kansas City chiefs quarterback who just got paid, and of course as you're fending super bowl champion, he revealed that pop singer Post Malone got a tattoo of his signature mahomes signature after he and teammate Travis. Kelsey wipe the floor with the rapper a game of beer, Pong. post is that. Yeah I guess that is the deal I by the way I'm just reading this. I'm not sure I'd call post Milona Robert Per. kind of a pop singer post he does some rapping, but that's not what I can't known for poses in Kansas City for a concert the day the chiefs held the Super Bowl parade, so he invited Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelsey backstage and naturally as you do. They immediately went into a bunch of beer, Pong, action and post who apparently describes themselves as a really effing competitive beer pong player fell behind quickly, and basically they had to be interrupted, nine or ten times, nine or ten games in by posts manager, letting him know. It's time to take the stage post. But they kept playing beer pong, and then after the fifteenth. Game Post basically said okay. I gotta go, but we have to have one more, and if you beat me here, I will get your autographs tattooed on my body. and. They beat him again and post followed through with a promise. You know you know you gotTa have picked the right guy for the I love post Malone by the way, and you got to pick the right guy for the crowd, so you member. I don't know if you can find it. But it was I was born a bubble man when when I saw this, so the new. Year's Eve celebration from New York City Right was Dick Clark. That's family friendly guy for years right? Who hosted the ball dropping New Year's rocking eve. Yeah, there, you go right, and they'd have you know his guests at the time. It'd be like Okay Dinah shore you know. What would you want to go to? You know and here's who's down at the New Year celebration in in Whatever Your Square Garden Square Garden, what do you call Times Square Times. Square. Okay so like Dinah, shore and here's Mr Rogers. Taking it all that stuff, so it's been a bit of a lame thing over the years the big radio guy now does it who hosted the American idol for so many years probably seacrest Ryan seacrest now is the host of that right and he's kind of. He's kind of an offensive you know. Dj Right who knows the top hundred and all that stuff, but one year. They decide they're saying. Stick around because we're. We're going to go talk to post Malone. I said this'll be good, okay. What's left of him. He was absolutely annihilated. Yeah, okay, annihilated, and they interviewed him, and it was just the best. Careful who you pick, you know that's what I remember about possible. Oh, well with all due respect to the to the guy like he's a tremendous artist and just one hit after another that the skies had a can't help a watch his career, and and how many moments where he's just. Gunned onstage, gunned in public I can't help. It can't help, but hear the you know think of the words. Amy Wine hosts because that's how she's actually writing songs called. Try to make me, Goto. Rehab I said No. No, no, no and unfortunately A difficult life ended badly in twenty eleven. When she died of alcohol. Poisoning, and I hope that postpones not headed for the same direction, but how man he is goes absolutely hard, and that's kind of the crux of this story. Mahomes said he couldn't an exact number on the amount of full beers. He drank 'cause half the beers were on his clothes. He did say the three of them each drank over twenty. Out there. You Go, you know on a more positive note, Steve! Amy Wine is nine years sober now. see how Jim. You, can't you? How? A tragedy at the time. To make the comedy yeah to make. A deal you know. How about? How about whip along Stevie did you? Did you read that closet in? MAHOMES is contract. so it's a five hundred million dollar contract writer, four seventy, seven with a twenty five million dollar bonus, which is always hilarious. Okay, you're GONNA get half a billion, but we're GONNA toss in twenty five million bonus. If you achieve. Yeah, how about if I chief nothing and you give me the four seventy seven? Well, that's how it would be in the NHL. Yeah like how are you possibly going to? Induce a guy to perform better because of the massive twenty five million dollar bonus on a five hundred million dollar contract. Did you see Steve? Where virtually can do nothing? Though like no nothing extra curricular. Well. As Jesus. As anything you name it. He's not allowed to any sport. Any sport not allowed to do. Not Not. Allowed to to to I, Dunno play fucking monopoly. I guess he was talking about it and. You start to bang. He can't do anything Steve No tennis, no golf, no, fucking around playing basketball or baseball, or you know water sports, none of that. Any dangerous I can't imagine tennis being a big deal or anything like that but I I i. don't think mistaken anyway. I'm okay with that. Right if I'm signing that deal. Yeah, no problem huckle lock myself in my house at five and count my cash all day. Okay Mitch this Jaunty Bridge Music. Did you see our new artwork for the PODCAST.

Girl that I've seen now four or five times. The the the new date. And? Laughing right laughs hard. you know, have a lot of fun played played a couple of nine hole rounds of golf dinner. Stuff like that. You know hanging out in A. Beautiful, House Fire pit hanging out all this stuff that I'm real I really like I'm really I'm really I'm getting old Steve. I'm getting mellow. SORTA like found myself this is this is kind of cool sitting around shooting the ship with someone and. Like I thought I didn't like I thought I didn't mind living alone. Right I've been I've been alone for for live by myself. For ten years had a girlfriend there for till about three or four years ago. So. I've never I. Never did the dating site thing Steve or any of that? And Every once in a while, you run into something, aren't you? Lonely and I'm going. No, no fuck, okay. I waste a lot of time. Doing nothing. But all of a sudden, get sort of connect with this girl, and she's really cool, and I'm realizing Jesus is great, you know. I'm getting. Dramatic sharing.

With I forget my ex girlfriend or something you know I was GonNa says really. She was really upset with me so. Run out and get a tattoo you know. and. She was like really. I said Yeah. How old were you? This really dry shot. So anyway I can. I, jump in and say maybe don't talk too much about ex girlfriends and he's going to throw that out there. That's a bad deal like you going you go on a date you talk about your. Your ex-wife was the no anyway. So I'm Steve, I'm having fun and given given the Zingers and all that and then and then. Last night was laughing. She started laughing about something. Said really hard, right? So I like that right Steve you know it's like I love making people laugh I really do I. Really do because it makes me feel good. Makes me. Get the attention that I seek for a narcissistic. Person with an imbalance TV, it's good, and and then Dan Sheila. Start making fun of me. ooh, Stevie Stevie. Aright. So. You thought you were going down a good lane here I thought. You. It's cool. She likes it and clearly is like for a long time. Yeah, I thought the whole thing was a lock. I'm waiting for a punchline right I'm waiting for getting, you know. I said. What. Does yeah. Why do you always make fun of me? I, said Fuck I I do. I. Do you know? and. So I kind of my I realize, Stevie. It's kind of my go-to. Right. It's kind of I. Mean it's it's. It's been my Go-to and I've listened I've I've had a great life doing that. I made a living doing it as a matter of fact, but. But not everybody. Not Everybody. Like like I screw this thing. I. What do you think the number is percentage wise of people in the world? that. Role with that particular punch like being the being the brunt of the joke. Like what percentage of the population you think actually gets a kick out of it enjoys it. I would say it's the minority under fifty percent I'd say. Well it depends on the setting Steve Okay. So if I'm doing, you know if you're like Don rickles. Of course right was was one hundred percent. You know over the top out of bounds. He was the first guy right when he does. His gig you remember Don rickles course right He was the guy who made fun of of Cultures and dialects and and languages and and everything. You know you've got to get out and. Call your wife ugly right. That was rickles right, and and no one could do it like that guy could do so if I go do an event. You know after all these years I've been you know. Did the radio show and stuff like that? It's if you don't people come to expect it at an event that you're GonNa Roast everyone. You're going to jump on the Mike and you're gonna hit them with the venom. And so that's great. That's great, but. But I I've done other things where I launch in that way and I've been told Hey. Fuck. Dial that back when you guys have decline of ours. And so. It's not for everyone you know. I been I got attacked I got attack doing stand up. One time by guy who was sitting in the front game was game shot a bunch of shots alone at a at a nightclub. When is doing a comedy show and and I just rent left and right. And the guy just kind of physically attacked me jumped off at enough and had enough I'll tell you what's the Canadians. Love it. Canadian crowds love it. They were self deprecating. We make fun of ourselves and and they liked that, but I'll tell you I'll tell you a real interesting story, though but the problem with entertaining Steven. You might know this, too, but the problem with entertaining is I I find? Is it's it's just an absolute ego. Fuck it just it just. It just messes with your head. Because of the attention, the you know making people laugh being on the Mike you know I it always. It always sort of screwed me up a little bit you know with with. A little touch of the celebrity thing and fuck you. Know goes to your head. And so you eventually, you think you can do anything you know. What happened to me. anyways are having a couple of times, but on a on a on a more serious level so when I went to. treatment. I spent a month in Treatment In Well ten years ago, Steve, August, first twenty ten is when when I got sober and I spent the whole month in. Treatment Down in Florida. So one of the exercises they did there was. There's about fifteen view in a group. I forget how they do it, but. there's there's fifteen pieces of paper with everyone's name on it. Okay, separate names, and you get to write on that name. What you think of that guy? Okay, but it's anonymous. Okay, so you don't know who wrote it down. But you get this this piece of paper back with fifteen comments, okay? For. Did you get what I'm driving at? Yeah I did the exercise with my girls. Hockey team told them all to, but I did it just breakdown. Nice things five nice things about each one of your teammates and it was. So. There's no parameter here for this. Okay. Right down going to characterize this person so. I remember this is about a week after was there and I was rubbing my hands. You know like I. Say being the Guy With the narcissistic personality disorder. Going everyone likes me. It's really it's really important to me that everyone likes me right. It's it's. It's something I'm on medication for Steve. Kids. It's just like it just is you know and. And and so I remember rubbing my hands together, because when it got in there I was nice to everyone there'e the oldest guy there at treatment center at the time, and there are a bunch of young kids with a lot of bigger issues than I ever had. You know and I kind of embrace them I was kind of I. Don't want to say a father figure, but more like a big brother figure, and and these guys belong to me and I was cooking in my my apartment, and having them over, and and give them some money. You know these guys that had nothing had nothing on there in terrible states and We just hung out. and. Took time to talk them all the all the right stuff and and. So at the so I thought this is gonNA. Be Great I'm going to get fifteen these. Glorious comments from people right. So anyway. I can't wait to get the feedback Stevie so. I get it back and I I open it up and the first one says. kind of mean. Right is number one. The second one goes mouthy. I tooth. The third one is like selfish. The other ones like never shuts up. Never, it was like. I'm not lying like like fifteen them. We're. At best. The good ones were tepid. To them and and maybe. I I looked up right and you. You sort of WANNA conveniently characterize yourself. Just as I did before that I, told you great guy, generous charming. Super Blah Blah. Blah, Blah Blah and you WANNA. Leave out the shit that you're. You're affecting people buying. And Anyway, that was that was. A real. Eye Opening Day right that I've always said if you want to know how you're doing. Because, because when you when you characterize yourself, you're you're probably getting an edited version. Get! if you know what I mean and on you. Anonymously. What what they think of things? It's always different. We see social media all the time, right? You know they'll have anonymous accounts and boy. Are they out there? Throwing haymakers with brutal honesty, some of just two jerks, but some of the are being brutally honest and and that's the exercise that you know when you write things down secretly Yeah, you're going to get the truth more often than not and and argue that it. Is that way most of the time like when you think about when somebody is up, say on a microphone and they're talking to someone in the room during the roasting thing and and making a person of butt of the jokes will. The room will laugh because it. You know it's funny and it's not at their expense. The the people you're poking fun at. They're going to laugh because they don't WanNa seem like a like a jerk or a sour puss, so they laugh along with. Reality is nobody really wants to be the jokes, and if it goes on an extended period as it did for your girl, they're I think they're going to. They're going to have to say about it and boy. If you secretly ask them what they feel about being the butt of a joke, you're going to get some brutal honesty. Maybe you know, and they just don't think it's. It's Ego maniacal of you to think the way I do that. They think everything that I think. The same God yeah, right? It's just like, but you do. That's the problem. That's always that problem. I found with being on a microphone. Is that you just think what you're? GonNa say is going to be the same as everyone else thinks. And and you know there's another half of me right that goes to. In a humble way that goes fucked me. I hope no one thinks the way I do about. Stuff that I would be embarrassed to say you know but I remember I was doing a Gig for Boston Pizza. And I was doing it year after year. They got they got A. I'm sure you have it down east to where they every year for heart and stroke they they sell pizzas shaped like hearts right and. It's a big event and have a golf tournament around it out here, and it's huge huge fundraiser for them. And I was doing it a number of years in a row, and the guy told me. About the fourth I want you to dial it back. I heard you every year. It's funny. It's great and all that stuff, but I'd like you to dial it back. And it didn't insult me. Right I like he i. He's the client you know and all that stuff and I. said no problem so. I don't think I said the word ship. At all that night. And if I did that would have been the worst thing I said, and obviously I did when I. Tell You what the result of this so as I. Drop Bombs Way too much and all that stuff. Anyway, I finished. This thing thought it was. Okay. It was almost lane. You know this. It was out of my. Comfort Zone A little bit, but I've always said I'll do it anyway. You want you know so. You got a practice what you preach. Got Off season and went there. The Guy will be happy. I didn't offend anyone. And and then an older woman came up to me, and and I really was Steve. If you seen anyone, okay, this is jerome here. He's being fucking Nice. And so I thought there. We go I walked off the stage and there was a lady there an older lady who who came walking up to me and she's went. Is it Jim? I went? Yeah, she goes. You are the most disgusting individual I've ever heard in my life that one of these dinners. Right well, and and it was the night I thought. I dialed it way back, so did she say what specifically about your I I don't know? I thought it was a joke. I thought I thought the guys center over on purpose say go tell that guy's the worst thing ever. So you just don't know. Hey. We're dealing with a room. It's just the same as as doing a podcast doing any kind of broadcast scenario. You're never going to please everybody in the room. We've all got such diverse tastes, and that includes senses of humor, and so now you might glum Onda two thirds of the room, but it'll be third. That'll be going well. That's just mean Yom. You know there's always that line about humor at someone else's expense you know. Some people think that that's the worst thing. Some people think that's the best thing I. everybody deals with the differently, and it's impossible to get. Everybody engaged in the same room. It's very difficult anyway. You know that the real the best of the Bachelor Jerry Seinfeld. He's got that that doesn't swear doesn't offend doesn't really? Talk about things at other people's expense, and he has the room eating out of his hand, but there's a handful of those human beings on the planet for everybody else. Chances are the somebody in the room. That's not going to like it. Yup I got. A unnamed hockey player played in the NHL who you would know if I brought up his name, so I was at the Vegas fantasy camp one year fifteen years. We did that thing right and. I was there one year and hockey. Players are the best they love you know you've you've listened to Russ all these They love Rippin guys. They love pranking each other they they can take it. They can dish it out. You know they're they're. They're phenomenal. You know with what they can do to each other, but there's that real fraternity you know that I think has a lot to do with with teasing each other sarcastic with each other ripping each other. That makes hockey one of the great things that it is you know. Anyway I was so that night. like I say it's a bit of a free pass. Everyone expects it. You know everyone. Everyone expects it, and it's only when I jump on. Like okay. Fuck here we go strap in. You're going to get nailed here. And so I did the get. It was a million laughs. Dude got into the drinks a little bit. Who I who I carved up? A few times. He was laughing Lebron. Everyone was roaring. Wind the tape ahead Steve about an hour and a half later when we're sitting at a blackjack, table me and that guy. And shooting the Shit and I can. I can sort of see his eyes glazing over a little bit and not quite laughing anymore. Right and. I gave up I gave them a little shot about something I forget, and he just in one fucking second flat got up, came around the edge of the table and fucking drilled me in the head. In, the middle of the Casino. Yeah so this car was earlier in the evening or at the Casino. I I think. Guy might have been about drink. It was well. The dinner was at the Casino. Blah Zhou Hotel everyone we're. We're in a big hall where the dinner was beautiful hotel. And then we all sauntered out after dinner like mostly, doesn't it? Everyone doesn't go to gamble, but the cracks that sparked the punch happened right there well. I think he had had enough the whole night. You know he'd. He was laughing. You know, but but if I was doing it to you in a crowd. That's laugh in their head off you you would. You would laugh to just fit in right at the time right so you. Anyway thought it thought it was all fun and Games, and then I could just see him getting a little a smile on his face. You know having a few more drinks and then he just fucking snapped. So really, what did you do? What did you say? I just got up and left. I got up and left and now the next day a guy came up. Look I! Drank too much. No I drink too much, and and I'm going okay, probably probably for sure, but but there is some to safety for the old truth serum. When, Gallon, then there's also the angle of I I've had guys that have. Started fights for no reason just 'cause. They were hammered and it was just like a I've had nineteen beers now and whammo. I all I just. I'm not thinking about anything I. Just feel like fighting right now and I was gonNA. Walk over and Punch Guy Right ahead. So who knows mean didn't see anything that night, but I think that's. That's where I think that kind of sense of humor. Goes over the best in rooms that are filled with people who are. Through the roof. self-confident right and NHL players are that they are wealthy. They are famous. They're strong and they have an air of confidence about them and. You know they can take it. They rib each other all day long because they can take it, they've got high self esteem, and so it's all good, but with the general public I think there's more of a fragility. They're not necessarily something that people will freely show, but I think you're more often. Run into trouble when you're not dealing with crowd. That's that's like that most of the time. That's where the NHL or where the the ripping sense of humor will work more often. Yeah, and like I say. You soon realise that you may be a one trick pony here. You know you may be with that. That like I say it's. It's always been my go-to. It's always like the other day you know we did the zoom call right as the guy comes off the hamburger I, just take him down right, take down, and so it's made me maybe this guy what what happened to me last night? Maybe Thinking Fuck I. Get it back up. I may have to write a million fucking letters to people here. Thirty years of apologies I guess and don't. Anybody's probably going to jump on the zoom. Call those guys and they're making fun of me. Going to our best listeners, anyway, it's. Early six people Jimmy on that zoom, call. Now Anyway. All right, we'll take time. We'll be back with final thoughts and more coming up after these words without sports on TV I. Don't know what I would have done without this podcast. It's kind of like having great insurance.

Really I don't know the. Honest to God I was saying. I want to tell you how stupid I am well I. had the thing muted while I was talking to We don't I'm not candice I'm not kidding. Yeah, so I flipped through facebook Stevie. Okay and I often get you get onto these heads of people. A lot of them are diy vits that I for some reason I. Like you know and it's not because I do it. I don't know I just hooked into the guys build decks and all this stuff. It gives you fake sense of accomplishment. It's good. Yeah. SORTA does and then these other ones where I've seen the gag over there pulling a gag. Obviously, it's set up right. It's you know know the equivalent of you know look look. There's a coin in the bottom of that water. Bottle right and just have a look you know. Put your face over the Waterberg, and then they come in and smashed the bottle. Bottle and all you've seen that gay. So that that's a very good example of what's on facebook in these bids. Okay, so it's about it's about a ten second gay here, right? And and always these things deavere or three or four minutes. You know what I'm going. You know like and I'll I'll wait. There must be something different than they're doing the setup. They're fine doing all this shit and I go there must be a different indy, and it's the same end right, and and I'm finding this all the time all the time that what you can do an eight seconds. You're dragging out two three and four minutes. Know and you know there's guys who will do mind reading shit I don't know. Know if you've ever seen on facebook and they come on and go I'm going to read your mind, you know. Pick a number, and it's all just a math thing right pick a number multiplied by twelve, doubling our bubble by, and you're always going to end up with the same number right right, so they know what your numbers going to fuck. It's been around for a million years and yet they do this and the and the. You know the questions go on and on for I finally figured it out, Steve. It's a money thing. facebook. Is Paying, guys. Okay. Everyone knew about Youtube Reagan paid. That facebook pays people for their videos. but there's there's some there's some parameters for it. S The second time. I've used parameters Stevie in one day. And one one of the things is the video must be over three minutes. To to. To however, you're making money. What's right to qualify? Probably you get to the three months up to qualify you gotTA. Yeah you gotTa Ten thousand downloads. You got to two or three other can't be offensive and all this stuff and one of them is I. finally figured out the Big One is. It must be over three minutes. So I finally the understood Steve While these lame duck, fricken people who are driving me bananas who show up all the time? Doing stupid gags. Are there videos or three minutes in two seconds. So Yeah I've learned something today. Stay Nice and. It onto the good listener, that's very good so the show is now just past the forty minute mark. So We're going to wrap it up there for no particular. You know what I mean. Would? Any final thoughts today. Yeah that was that was my final thought. Double final thought means. Final, final final final thoughts you gave me a double final. Thought did I was that if they go into that with final thoughts? You said final thoughts, and then I gave you my facebook crap, sorry stuff. That's Great Jim any final thoughts I got double final thought here. Honey odds because you're. Well! You don't worry about that. You just worry about making up with your lady about making. Treat her right. Dammit, don't screw this up. Jim I don't up Steve I, can't though? I can't I know no other way. I got to change my ways. You'll have nothing to say. I. Rj GonNa, say anything. I'm going to be like this. Not. By don't have any language that isn't in the language of mockery. What's the blood pouring your multi Mi-, biting my tongue, okay? mytalk. I'm knocking my fucking teeth out with my own fist A.

Now here's a highlight from coast to coast am on Iheartradio and welcome back to coast to coast George Noory with you along with our guest lead Keith. Clayton. Let's talk more about that open and shut case that was not so open and shot the murder suicide. So police still aren't invest I've kind of like drop the case Like I was saying, they're a billion dollar. Family back in the twenties when a penny meant something. So when that took place Within twenty four hours that whole story about the murder was put under the rug never talked about again the newspapers printed anything after that that much clout that much Clare's all money all about money for sure. Their money by the oil oil, right? Yeah. We're he came and he found he was the first one fine oil in Los Angeles. Went Down to Mexico to Tempe Mexico made his fortune down there and then was a billionaire by then Jeez yeah. Was Her name Brand Name Company that we'd all know. Well, no I mean he was I I'm I'm not sure what if there was a gas stations or whatever I know that there are other people like Harry. Has Sinclair oil, which is now cold but as far as this family, they just sold their product to whomever torch. All right. Let's talk about some of the ghost stories emitting from that mansion tell us about the story of the city worker what happened there? Okay. This is this is nuts and I talked to him today oddly enough he drove up I was here at Greystone still around still oddly enough he's still actually showed up here and his story is he works for the city and one of his jobs when he first started working was. On. Rodeo in Beverly Hills they do for the holidays. They do one night and they have workers come in and they replace all the flowers like poinsettias and stuff I've seen that I've seen that. Yeah. So the next morning everybody comes and goes Oh my God it's holiday time which is great but he worked until like two thirty at night. From from the morning into the night was exhausted, I'll go up to my my office, which was a trailer here at at Greystone down at the southern end of this property he comes in two three night dark goes into his office inside this trailer. Sits down closes is any here's three loud knocks on the front door. Now. That might be scary if you're at home at your house, but think about being at this property. By yourself here's the Knox and he's like, who is at the front door if I open it and somebody hacks me up nobody's GonNa? Know because nobody knows about. Greystone. Skeleton at the door or something. But that's what was. So he knows what worries at he knows how the property is. He didn't know it was really haunted though. So he goes up, he creeps up to the to the window that's right by the door and he sees a glow coming from outside of this window and he's like what is that? He gets an increase just little bit opens up the blinds and what he sees and we talked about it today and he was tripping out again today what he sees George is. A stage coach. It's a stagecoach that's lit up. He said it looked like almost like an avatar where they had kind of the Purple White Light and Avatar the movie he said it was like translucent and it was a stagecoach with four lights on the top. He could see the wood on the side look like old. Barn, would there were rains that came off the stage coach onto a horse? And he's looking at this at at imagine what you would what's going through your mind. Yeah and he's like, what am I what is going on here and the Horse takes off and pulls the stage coach away from his trailer and goes up the hill toward the gate house, which is the lower building down here in the south end and makes a turn and then just dissipates and disappears away. That's a great story. Is that crazy in? Does he seem bothered by it? Yes, I and To this day. Yeah. He came up to me and he starts telling me the story again and he shows me his arms with goosebumps and he said it was like ghost rider the movie ghost rider had the same kind of feel and look. Tell me about emily. Emily got to do with this. This is crazy. So I'm in the mansion there there's a a a movie crew that's in there because they're getting ready to shoot a series in there and this woman who's with that group I see her break away from the group and she comes to me with their Eyes Wide Open I'm going Oh something happened to her so she comes towards me and she goes can i. Talk to minute and I go. Yeah sure and she says is this place you know I go no I don't know I don't know what you're saying I want them to tell me the story I don't want to lead them anyway, and she's like is is it is it haunted by said, why do you ask and she says to me ever since she was a little girl she could see hear feel sense spirits. Right exactly and she said when she turned fifteen, she shut it down she couldn't take it anymore. She said. But when I came into this mansion and I'm standing with the crew, I looked over and this little girl runs up to me and says, my name is emily it's emily. My name is emily and she's looking at this little girl like and looks at the. Crew they're not responding and she's like my God it's happening again she walks around the corner and looks at a little girls. Okay. Your name is emily but don't do this please don't do this to me. So she says so my question is, is this mansion haunted and I said, yes, she did a little girl die here and I said, yes what's her name emily? I said, we don't know she goes. It's emily. Well, we've we've I've gone through with the forensics guy from Beverly Hills went downtown, and we're still trying to find remember if she died here, the family covered it up right as they covered up. So many things you bet. So we're still looking, but I know she's been seen George she has been seen in the house probably five times literally seen. Running away one of the Rangers went up to the front door one morning looked in there and there she was. Ran Away from him and he went inside looked around the corner and went oh my God, there's nobody there and then we knew emily's in the house. Are there any more dough heinous around? No, the the the immediate family I think it was Patrick was the last surviving son of Ned and he died if they get three probably six or seven years ago. And how did they disperse the mansion that they sell it or what Hap-? Yeah. So Nets wife Lucy DOE stayed in the mansion until nineteen, fifty five, and then she sold it all the all the children had gone. She sold it to Henry, crown who built WHO's part of the Empire State building he bought it and he held onto it. They thought he might move in but I think his wife put the Kabosh on that. And he was out of Chicago. So he stayed in kept his dealings in Chicago and he held onto for ten years and have people come. They could film here and used it for filming and eventually the city bought it in sixty five got some huge properties and prominent names in that city don't they have Two doors down is Ozzy Osbourne's House member his show. Oh. Yeah. Absolutely. I know his son I know Sanrio well. Okay. Yeah. Doors down from here. So all what about the strange story of Ranger Steve Okay. Are you ready for this This is seen arranger Steve Clarke. One of my best friends and he we were having a design show. and. So designers would come in they choose a room they put up all their designs and try to to have people come in and they would go through the rooms and see if they wanted to purchase things or have them design their homes. So Steve would come here early opened up the mansion to get it ready for the day and he comes into the mansion. He's walking through the Grand Hall turning on the lights and in the card room, which is straight ahead. When you walk into the grand entry, the card room, it was The designer was Lisa Turner and she was designing it was for a titans of the business and she was designed for Stevie wonder and so she had all these motifs in there were really beautiful and in between these doors, she had these statues and and they were like probably six, three, six, four, tall heavy three, hundred pound statues that had like leather face and off that there were women off that leather face that came down to the chest where strings with heavy rocks hollowed out that made it look address. So he's walking through the mansion turning on the lights. and. He looks over as he turns on the lights and this one statue moves toward him. About a foot foot and a half scoots toward him, these are three to four hundred pounds. It took like six guys to move them in and moves toward Steve. and. He stares at it and he told me, he said you just moved because it's it's really hard fathom when you're by yourself and you're in a mansion was early mornings dark. And this thing moved toward him when Lisa Turner showed up during the day, she was upset because she said who moved The statue and Steve. I gotTA. Tell you it moved by itself. Story. That's really true. The creepy meat locker story was that the made who killed herself in there. So what happened? Was that I was taking this woman lose who was a arranger ex ranger from a long time ago she decided to come here to meet me here and I was gonna walk her through this mansion. To get her ideas of what happened to her of the paranormal she has the gift she can feel she can sense. So she had eighteen stories that are in the book that are like off the charts. So when I walked her through, we were upstairs in the kitchen upstairs and she said to me I whenever I was in here I was in this in the I go check the kitchen, make sure everything's locked and everything okay and I keep hearing this pounding and I couldn't figure out where the pounding was coming from. So I'd walk out of the kitchen looked down the hallway couldn't it couldn't hear where it was coming from. and. Then the next day same thing same. She goes finally one day I found out. It was coming from this door. She shows me I said well, you you know what that is right she goes well, it's the meat locker. What happened in the meat locker and she said, no, I said a slit her wrists there. And she stared at me and went. Oh, my God she was trying to get out. And that's what she heard. Is the pounding from inside the me locker. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Creepy. Indeed. How about the strange story of Ranger Mike of Ranger Stories South? Yeah. With the Rangers. Rangers stories because the Rangers have access to the mansion you were one I was one I didn't want access but I. So, raise your mic shows up design show. Again, he opens the door. It's the end of the day. He comes in through the servants' entrance and he's checking to make sure everything's locked up for the night. He walks over by the stairwell that goes up to the second floor and he glances over and there's this little boy. Looking through the the railing of the stairway staring at him and he's like, how did this kid get? Oh, my God I got. He was afraid to Steve Ranger Steve was his boss was going to get upset with him because he let people in the house during the design show. So he says, Hey, in the kid turns and runs and he goes up through the servants' wing and the second floor he runs after him pursued the child the kid. Goes around the corner. Mike Loses. Him comes out and says, Hey, come on out tell me where your parents you've got to come out. You can't be inside the house he's looking he's looking and there is no child hit and to top it off during that design show there was a room that we used for all historic purposes for photos for dishes and things you could see what used to be in the home and he calls me off this. Like. What's going on here takes me into this room. Goes up to a photo and says, there's the kid right there. I love these things crazies great stories. Yeah. It's it's and it's all all real. Message Room in this house? What's a Masai? Yeah the massage you're talking about. Massage okay and the massage room. This is crazy. You remember. I lose was it was a ranger She told me the story that she.

So she was like, Oh, my God I gotTa have a company come back and clean this up you can. She can. Right so it's it's a white carpet. So this guy shows up, he's got his cleaning bucket and the whole thing and she goes you got this has to come out. So he starts in scrubbing it. She stands her watching him. Then she walks into the room next to her, which is doe heaney's room. She's walking around. She comes back into the massage to see how he's doing. He is frozen. He stopped cleaning he is staring at lose walking into the room and she's looking at them like why aren't you cleaning and he looks back over to the door that enters the massage room and there is a woman standing in the doorway in a white dress and you can see right through into the hallway.

Nhl Star that's an unintentional segue anyway to today's topic's Austin Matthews responding to his disorderly conduct charge and so do you with a good listener in our web bowl read blacks. GM was some uninspiring firing commentary about his quarterbacks and its ruins law day talking concussion in sport. Specifically rugby and Jim is pretty shocking. Take about rugby all straight ahead episode one twenty six of the project assisted on the play by Jim came forward rb computing all insurance Ontario and Popeye supplements. My Co host is always jammed your Rome how're things Jim Stevie. I went dancing last night. No you did it. I did Oh yeah I got a buddy who a longtime time friend of mine who is a musician singer Songwriter Guitar player and Darrell Darrell Bar and he's been around here a long time and he said let's go dancing adds up to tell all I mean Steve The old days right. Freshen up a little bit jump in the shower for you know through on a shirt on let's at the bar and see if we can snap one from the her stevie. Those are back in the day and I said I gotTA gotta go see my buddy plays on Tuesday nights a little regular house geic north of town here Saint Alberta's is a lot of a lot of good hockey players Steve Come out of Saint Albert Mark Messier from there and Journal McGinlay Murray Murray played for Chicago now as a color commentator with the Blackhawks Cox Murray Murray Troy Murray is captain anyway anyway. This guy's playing up they're seeing Albert is the equivalent of Kanada from Ottawa seen over from Edmonton so I blaze up there. Seven thirty start Steve Okay so take the senior citizens start and great little country deal he does and of a sudden. I'm up there and I walk into this thing. It looks like looks like sort of Bingo Nights Steve at a pallet of carrying all boy when I get there and it's pretty good and next. I'm looking around. You know I'm sitting there and by myself. Steve go up by myself if and when you went to the dance all by yourself why started by myself yeah I got up there. I was really like in the tune you know I'm a music fancher you uh-huh animal up there sort of moving shimmying a little bit. You know what I'm doing. I'm doing the Shimmy and and and but all these people are dancing around me Steve Getting in their way big to steppers course. I don't know if you're if you're a two stepper but they're doing this sort of country dance where where the guys with the girl he's twirling around but they move around the dance floor Stephen a circle. You know it's sort of like this. March of these people and I'm in the way and I'm by myself and I don't know how to do that to step things stevie until I saw this. This seventy five year old lady asked me hey hey score. Yeah Soy exactly trying to dance with her. You know what I'm trying. Ah I'LL TRY ANYTHING STEVE. I'll try anything ten times while you're already a million times ahead of me just by going up there by yourself to dance like I retired from data. Today I married my wife. No I like that since I know I like and and I'm dancing with this lady and she's really good. She's really good but but this this is all style dancing Steve The guy's got a lead. Okay okay the guy and and my my I remember my mother teaching how to dance so you have your you know your you're. I'm holding up her right hand with my left. Hand you know so you hold that in the air and I got my right hand on the small of her back steamy. Okay that's like good dancing and and so you you sorta when you got to move around you. Push your hand a little bit and then you let it go and they're gonNA move so I got all that. At least I thought anyway so I'm I'm spinning her around and then I elbow another old lady behind me who's dancing with her husband so I give her a shot in the jaw. ooh In the jaw twirling around got my arms flailing all over the place I pop her in the jaw right and yeah I hear a little plate move a little bit you know she got false teeth. I hear that Gigolo around a little bit and and Lady Lady Lady Lady and I turned around apologized to the lady in the one I might partner just took off and went back to her table. It was discussed I come on trying to learn how to dance teeth. Get off the dance floor up there. Okay okay. They all come in to dance. Get off totally agree. I'm not I'm going back up there. They'll Steve. I'm going back up. They're gonna I'M GONNA. I'm going to work on it this week. You know I'm just an you're speaking like a different language right now. I just can't imagine what circumstances circumstances would lead me to a geriatric nightclub where I'd get there and I'd say I gotta get up there and dance like the first thing I would do would be like I'd walk in. I'd put my hat on the rack. I'd see what was going on. I'd grab my hat and leave like I just do a little loop like GRANDPA Simpson gift that goes around on on twitter like I'd be out you just decide to settle in and Boston move on the dance floor by yourself while everybody else is trying to do. I don't know what the hell they were doing Charleston or something. I don't know to step you know. They're doing this little to step out. That is why I say I gotTa Get out of the House TV. That's why I did it. I gotta get I gotta get. It's the People Steve a little bit and it didn't go so well. Maybe although I was your son I was checking out Steve. I found myself sort of I'm single steam checking ODA sixty sixty seven or eight is on the table with a woman Steve. I might be okay with that. You know what to be fun for you to do though like to mix it up a little bit I get really hammered and then find a woman at two in the morning sitting in her car doing some work and then go over to the car and then a Gigolo handles and bang on the door kind of thing to freak her out and then when she comes out to give you shit you drop your you drop your pants or shorts and kind of grab your botox and stuff and then walk into your apartment and he'd be hilarious something to do. It's what is apparently what all the millionaire. NHL Players doing these days. Oh Jesus you know I was. I started write this stuff down. Steve is probably pretty charming. I'm like what am I going to do okay. There's a woman working in her car. What sort of work is she doing a two of the more anyway so just go tap on Earth Okay what Austin Matthew Sir? I didn't get the whole story so he's out. He's in Phoenix or something right. Tell me what happened here what happened this is back in May and he's charged with disorderly conduct after his behavior buren described a lot of it there in ingest as my suggestion to you but I guess the bottom line is he was at a condo complex at about two in the morning a female security guard in sitting in a car and then she's bothered by the sound of someone jiggling the handle over car door for the person's allegedly Austin Matthews and he appeared to the woman intoxicated and so she steps out to confront Matthews and he's with his friends as as well and Matthew's apparently said that he quote with thought it would be funny to Kinda. Give her a startling. I suppose as Matthews left he apparently dropped his pants to who exposes underwear to the guard in something like a quote unquote mooning gesture and none of this has been proven in court. I guess the appeared in court today or at least his lawyer had to because Matthews then replied to what went down. I didn't think it was a very very good explanation but this is what he had to say to. The media today regrets you know I need my actions. I would ever put a distraction on the team or distressing the individual not take a lot of pride and prepare myself to the season representing me as well as I can't so unfortunately do the are currently make any other comments. That's all I have and I think you got out so there's Austin Matthews lot of you knows and not really. I didn't feel like a very contrite young man but it is what it is and he responded to. It and I don't know what you think of that Let's get real Steve Okay. Let's get a little bit real that people go out. They have a good time. You you know the elbow people in the jaw while they're turn it down or or they you know they moon someone yeah. I hope nothing comes to this thing. You know. Maybe a little offside sort of it at two in the morning couple rattling the door handles someone but that might be a little scary you know for well. That's the point yeah that that that made by but you know what in the end alone. That's relax relax. The Guy was having fun. He's had a few POPs and he ends up. I think it's it's a he didn't go full now right. He didn't drop full trout in the boxers on and and then I'm reading it now as he walked away just reading this thing he walked away from the lady and pulled his pants down and he kept walking towards apartment complex. I guess he was about to call it. A night. In allegedly Lee discontinued shuffling along walking toward his apartment complex with his pants around his ankles and a comedy too that it exists there Sir Valence video and I'm shocked that we haven't seen it yet because let's go back to the last time that we saw late night Arizona surveillance elands video well that was the Ottawa senators in their infamous uber cab ride remember that and that one got out no problem well. I guess this wins in the hands of the police. I wouldn't be surprised if at some stage we see Austin Matthews doing doing his trouserless shuffle back to to his apartment complex. I don't think there should be anything in the way of you know immune. A charge has been laid but at the end of the day it's a it's a misdemeanor demeanor and I don't. I don't see this thing being tremendously impactful like yeah okay. It's it sucks. It was stupid thing too. Damn I'm for sure and it it sucks to be startled like that but I mean we've all been startled by some idiot who pulls a prank on it's like they're third walking down the hallway at work and all of a sudden somebody goes Bo and is that right. Do I get to charge you now like you're being a jerk. There's no question he's guilty the of being a jerk but I think it you know if we're getting into getting the law involved with this. I don't know maybe a little over the top and it it certainly only a reasonable discussion to say that this could impact his chances of being captain of the Toronto Maple leafs that it's a black mark against him. I would say in the consideration for that because it's a pretty crappy way to to treat another person but let's say I want to make sure that you know this thing is kept in perspective at the end of the day total it was somebody trying to do a prank and it was not a good idea but it certainly doesn't need to go too much further I mean I'm sure this woman would be very happy if if if Austin Matthews issued an official apology and said you know here's fifty grand go buy yourself a nice new car part part of these things when I hear I don't know why it happens more and more obviously social media were stuff ends up. There is is a cash grab was is it really. Is it really that that you know extraordinary what he did with the guys out there hammered a little bit and they're walking home and I hope dad judge. This is a waste of time. This is a waste of time. You know we're not taking up the courts time here with this sort of stuff you know I think it's because all these court. TV shows now judge Judy and there's lots of them on there right where they're doing these sort of small-claims thing and I wonder I wonder if people are seeing that shit now and they just ridiculous. Although I like Judge Judy he's funny. She don't take any shit from anyone one you know but at the end it's like you know what I decided. In favor of the defendant and you gotta give him back his eighty dollars coat. Okay you know what I mean. They're just what so you think. Do you think that there should be. Let's say two things I should there be a suspension from the NHL and should this play into his. Maybe being the next captain of the lease I absolutely you know what absolutely not you know the kid. The kid made a comment. He probably can't like you said I can't say anything more than that because now it's some sort of lawsuit put some charges brought against him but I don't mind that Steve I. I don't mind it. I don't think the NHL should do anything at all. I wouldn't be surprised just because it's a it's the charge that wouldn't surprise me to see him get a couple of games and it wouldn't surprise me to see him not become the next captain of the Toronto Maple leafs and I and I can't condone it like it's a prank and everything and it was a crappy thing to do to a person that remember she. She's alone in a car at two in the morning and it's is not just Austin Matthews. That's rattling the door handles. It's more than one guy it's a bunch of his friends doing it as well and this is the thing that I think a lot of people have have their backup about and I've seen this a lot on social media today. especially among men like us who are saying Kay. Let's keep this in perspective or it's not that big you deal or whatever it is. They're saying okay picture. That's your wife or your daughter behind the wheel of that car and then some a bunch of guys do that to her. Would that put a different spin on it for you Steve. It's not a criminal. Actually I think it's a mistake okay. I think the guy made a mistake is what I think happened. If you had a do over you know look at it and go of course I wouldn't do that again. Of course it wouldn't do that. I in completely lose my mind. We're just having fun. Yes yes that might start someone a little bit goal. We'll we'll we'll. We'll what's going on here. You know people make mistakes all the time and he gets a do over no further end of story bank sorry about that. I won't do it again and off he goes. That's that's how I think. This thing should be handled. Yeah nothing about this part where the woman is scared nothing go. That's funny but the video expect to be quite hilarious you know watching Austin Matthews walk away from the scene with pants around ankles heading back to his apartment complex. I think that at the end of the day that may well end up being in the long range the punishment unto itself like appropriate create punishment in that that video once it's released to the world. It's going to live for all time that dog forever so I think we both agree on this story. As we wrap up here that we both agree it was wrong but we both want to make sure that the punishment is kept in perspective exactly exactly perfect all right. We'll talk more about this.

A lot of people think that the leafs are finally going to name a captain and this comes out now something that happened back in May in Arizona. These are some of the bits of feedback we have Joshua writes the kids twenty two a superstar on the city a multimillionaire. He pulled down his pants while he was drunk and slapped his cheeks with boxers on you didn't drink and drive eating. Kill anyone the guys being twenty two year old. It's fine by me. I hate leaf nation bar haven says fan rights so a group of drunk twenty two year old should be able to try and break into someone's car while they're it dropping. His pants is only part of the story Carson writes. I think it highlights the pervasive challenges challenges of misogynistic misogynistic attitudes and behaviors among athletes these guys grew up with that mentality and we're hardly ever challenged on it. Keeping people accountable for their actions is necessary assery Michael Harris writes also doesn't like it. The big deal is the part everyone is overlooking getting in a woman's van at two. Am they got in. They were just rattling the door. That isn't a harmless prank. That's a situation that makes someone fear for their safety. Unfortunately we're hearing so many boys will be boys responses it should but but it will not affect his captaincy. I got a few more any reaction what we heard so far. Yeah I listen. I don't disagree. I don't disagree read that. They shouldn't are should not have rattled the door. I get that I get that you might be whoa what's going on here here. You know so. I understand that I understand that but it's a mistake. It's a mistake okay okay. I don't think it's a criminal action. I don't think they maybe there's technically in the law. Steve I duNno I duNno. I've heard I've heard assault can be as as minimal as you know scaring someone right where they're fearing hit or something but I don't want to get into that I disagree and I think it's a mistake doc. That's all I think it is. That's all I think at this point. So Josh I think is my favorite because that's my side. He should get the tweet of the day you know He. He didn't do a bunch of other stuff. All you gotTa do is look back at Tonio Brown or other athletes who are being accused of terrible evil stuff. You know that that's not the case here. give give the Guy Mulligan guy say twenty two you know they say the brain. Steve Steve doesn't even develop till you're twenty three digital that fully or in my case fifty seven I mean there's all kinds of the disastrous things that have happened the NHL history I'd say the NHL has probably less disastrous type stories of of really bad stuff sounds like you think about this lava Voinov case guys trying to get back in the NHL after an awful awful sounding domestic situation and so that's is the kind of stuff that I get my my backup and I get sanctimonious about for this stuff. I acknowledge what it is. It's dumping that some kid he did with his friends and they need to be held accountable for it for sure and again. I think it plays into the captaincy decision making. I think that if there's a game or two suspension yeah I wouldn't lose her a bit of sleep over that but that our courts might be wasting their time with with this. I think that's a bit over the line. It's gotTa keep things things in perspective typical. Dad Rights is a drug twenty two year old teasing and pulling his pants but not his underwear down to a security guard a big deal. No is the answer it is not of course he should know better but honestly if he weren't number thirty four he probably wouldn't have been charged at all. All Bar Haven sends fan writes bet you anything that the Chiampou charged him had absolutely no idea who he was in response to Typical Dad there don and Kanada writes it doesn't affect affect my senators so steady as she goes lads and seasons rights as sense fans who are weeded judge with all the drama we had add last year and so those are some of the bits of feedback we got on twitter at. TSN Steve in RB computing went pool. Everyone's entitled to Opinion Stephen. I I've heard those tweet you just read. WHAT'S A little heavy steve coming out of that? If someone used the term misogynist Sajjan EST misogynistic and that's that's a wrong deal right there. That's wrong accusation. You know that's that's a misogyny is this this strong prejudiced against women right. That's as far as far as I know is what that means so easy now. Yeah I feel like these guys are in their drunk. It's two in the morning probably drunk at two in the morning yeah I think they probably do the same thing if they see a guy sitting alone in their car aren't I don't think there was anything jen related by this at all yeah easy easy on the misogyny okay so thanks to everybody for their responses at TSN Steve and of course our web brought to you James by rb Computing Stevie. My cat are going to read this off to take pictures one day.

God like those bad dreams Steve. You know where people say that they have. The apparently meet something where you're just spitting teeth. I don't know if you've ever had those dreams fire no motley machine machine so that's a bad dream steve or if you're with me I mean some captain crunchy other well. Well flow pieces. Do not good so when you went dancing with the other night. They actually embraced you. Probably they welcomed you into their community. Assuming you were a peer yes yeah. I'm starting to look like that. You know like like the waitress nice waitress talking to 'EM CHATTY Steve Regardless of my goal okay. I'm friendly charming with the women of all ages I I was asking the Buddy there my daryl there my buddy. No I was asking him about you. That's not a bad move. Steve Okay so like Oh yeah. Hey told me if you have kids she goes yeah I do yeah. Do you have grandchildren. Wow Wow that was hers back to me. You must have grandchildren I mean technically sid is in the in that window where she's legally allowed to get married but it's still a little early to just assume somebody's a grandparent yeah yeah well. I guess that's what I look. It's like Steve and I'm trying here Stevie. I'm really trying. You know there's two. There's there's there's two things I would like to change in my life Steve if I could and yeah I don't know what it is for you. If you had to change one thing a serious note Stephen would be me given up smoking okay if I could do just one thing and the other one is not h okay. I don't like it. I don't like I'm not fond of it. I thought it'd be always on with Bruce Gary back on the Senate panel yesterday on at the Ottawa citizen in and Ottawa Sun Websites. It's a weekly thing they do talk in some sense and stuff and they have these obviously wonderful cameras because it kind of in the photography business along with journalism and photography side of things you know they got these these unbelievably high definition cameras and seeing close ups of my quickly quickly aging face it really it really drives it home like the way you look at yourself in the mirror every day after you have a shower always looking at yourself in the right angle I can you say okay at that looks good a camel look at myself that way while the camera catches every evening so I wasn't real keen on all these side angle shots and Jowl L. Shiites. What does that Ajello Cam? You got there Jesus. I said I said an instagram or twitter post when I was on vacation and so the gag was I like to have fun right and so the gag was hey. I've I've got my phone to take picture of the background of the beach so I but I feel my whole face with the phone. you know and then the whole ideas you know me Steve at can produce these bits. They're they're they're worker now and I'm going to just pan back and the gag is this place reminds me of Edmonton and I'm in Hawaii of course so so I got hold the phone way up to my face go. Hey Hi everyone it's me Jimmy and and this place reminds me of Edmonton and then I pan back when you could see the beautiful surf in the it's ironic it doesn't remind you of Edmonton at all no but but what did happen or the I'm waiting for it. I I love to look at the reaction Steve People's comments and all they were Steve. What's what's with all the hair on your nose? Okay get rid of that. Jimmy hairs coming out of your no not coming autumn. I know Steve Okay that happens. You gotta get the trimmer get in there. Okay on top of my knows. Steve on the bridge of my should be able L. to get that one just swooped with the blade yeah yeah ear hair nose hair. It's the worst it's it's the worst get the get the okay fellas okay gala gone get the trimmer not know exactly and that was something I was careful on. I know it was going camera yesterday but the what you use like one of those like Phillips things that has the kind of the you said a poke up your nose. If you will some of the size of a pen the head on this thing and you poke it up your nose yep takes care of that. That's what I got to and works pretty well but sometimes it doesn't it just like won't get some of them and so I got in there I remember but six months ago again in there with a little tiny citizen my wife uses for this or that little tiny guys immediately say oh this is working fantastically snip snip snap and caught a big hunk of my nostril and I bled like a stuck pig for about three hours. That's decide that shouldn't be a nose trimmer it shouldn't what are you using a saas all Steve for that. She somehow saw great jammed in there. What's the reason that's what's happening is? You're nervous about it. Is you're too tentative right. You're GonNa you just picked up jam the thing up there and whipping around Steve Like I say like you're stirring batter. That's what you do and jammed ear. Get that thing that sounds like really sounds like no just right back we'll do they got a couple of other things going to get to today. I was a mesmerized by the Red Blacks General Manager Marcel Desjardins as commentary today now in the CFO. We haven't talked a ton CFL this summer largely because the red blacks have been not very good and so the red blacks lost a CA- Jillian in Arro- and what the whole story line of the off season was a lot of guys leaving town a lot of key guys including their star quarterback Trevor Harris now some red flags fans ends would be on me about that about putting the words star beside his name but boy does he look like a star compared to what they've had this season and Jonathan Jennings Dominic Davis they just I have not been CFL level quarterbacks and as a result an annual all these other changes they've made they've not been very good so the GM comes out today where because is where two stage now where it's left no doubt like they're the worst team in the NFL after going to the Great Cup final last year and so does yard has said on ESPN twelve hundred today something along the lines of I'm paraphrasing that Yeah Okay I admit maybe we mishandled the quarterback situation in terms of our evaluation of it in the off season and I'm like what is that you still five games left in the regular season. You've just shocked the two quarterbacks you have under the bus I mean these guys are still out there busting their ass they want no. They're not they're they don't WANNA be bad quarterbacks. They played poorly and who knows maybe a maybe one of them. The light goes off for them all of a sudden start figuring it out and they get going but they know shot. Now I mean it's like the red blacks. GM basically basically said Yeah. We're going to get rid of these guys in the off season. What do you think of commentary like that in the middle of the season? Well see it's. It's a couple of things there stevie I I I agree with you. got a bunch of games left here and you're you're going well. We'll just have to go with what we I guess. I feel really good if I'm suiting up this weekend well. I think you need to be sure miss. Y that's why you're paid to be a GM is to evaluate and you didn't have much in the way of a body work. Jonathan Jennings was star in BC for while he didn't do particularly great there which is why is not there anymore and Dominic Davis had almost no CFL experience and he was the the start of the year as the starter and it really had a Eugene Melnyk feel to it and that is like you know what Trevor Harris wants too much money we feel we can get by with these guys who were far less expensive and I don't know when especially at the quarterback position if you have to overpay then you have after overpay you if you decide to go in another direction as the red blacks did than you are now sticking your neck out. Your neck is now on the chopping block that you have now now assured the paying fan that these two guys one of them anyway can take care of business that they'll replace. What Trevor Harris brought to the table bill and if you're wrong well you may very well paid for it with your job yeah? I think you sit around you know. When you're you're deciding deciding who's going to be cut? WHO's not and obviously quarterback is the hands down the most important position on the team when you take a poll hole of all the coaches and the manager when you're in the room unless you've got one hundred percent right? We've got to regroup here. We've got to regroup. I right we we need. We need everyone on board with this quarterback yeah and my commentaries about again about the co what he had to say today that he would say that in the middle of a season not middle. I five games still to be played and lots could happen. You never know to say that. May maybe miscalculated what we had at quarterback that in terms news of making the decision there may be again some Eugene Melnyk type things at play the GM sometimes has his hands tied by what ownership is up to osage. League is the owner of the Ottawa Red Black and maybe someone decided that you know what the stadium is built. Everything's developed now. Maybe we want to calm things down a little bit in terms of our payroll expenditures. Maybe that happened to I don't know the answer to that. Maybe Marcel does yard and was not given the kind of money that he was looking forward to to try and put this team together but maybe Steve on the other hand it could be there might be a method to his madness. It's not the first time that someone would call hollow player hoping hoping it would would give the guy a boost you know hoping it would be something like Oh yeah. I'M GONNA I'm GONNA show you. You know what I mean. That's happened right before sports. Were players. Call out other players or the coaches. Call up the team saying I'll tell you what the problem is. We're not getting beat. We're just shitty and there's a bunch bunch of guys who got to begin to step up and maybe that maybe he's doing something like that. That would make more sense to me if he's given them a little tough love sorta deal you want to belong in this league while you gotTa play better. You know yeah as possible. How maybe maybe that's his hail? Mary may be trying the tough love thing. It's it's hard to say but it was unconventional to hear that with five games left in the season. It's time now for warranties Super Trivia James Sports Trivia fact designed to blow your your mind presentation of Silk Web Solutions Dot COM for all your web design and maintenance needs spin your web with silk today's question question it's about the blue team then S- while I don't WanNa say the blue team is only ever had two guys be chosen first overall in NHL draft aft one fairly recently the other back in the mid eighties used defense when they converted successfully very successfully to Ford. Can you name those two first overall graphics by Bluey. Wait a minute Steve. Wait a minute here on the Super Trivia. This was supposed to be anything but but hockey you you did the two Gulf boom boom. I nailed him curtis strange back to back and Bubba since twenty ten. I got to win Roy Masters. You promise say I don't know Steve. You've no no promised me it wouldn't be hockey. You promised me would however you have a few people in the sport of hockey and like to Dabble in the Hockey Trivia and this is certainly really not a crazy difficult one however mid eighties number one. I'm going to say one one of the Mats Sundin Matt Son Dean. That's a fine guests because he was a first overall draft pick but not yup not of the Toronto Maple leafs he ended up in Toronto a good chunk Bashkir back drafted by the Quebec nordiques terrible helmet if you could if you could do it over Daniel Alfredsson as well Alfie would eventually get a decent helmet but boy Matson Vina those Jolfa helmets they look like I don't know toilets for infants yeah. There were about bad-looking helmet okay. Yes one of them should be. I got drafted in the mid eighties. Is that what you said drafted one recently or still rolling in the mid eighties wasn't Matthew's recently Matthews is one well done in the mid eighties think of Mr Maple Leaf of the eighties rest court played with him. The I know Russ Ordinal Yeah but russ got got drafted Let's see how old Zion the mid eighties I was to maybe it will yeah Rusk Rusk Cardinal No oh yeah he went third. I think he went third. I think Wendel Clark nicely done Wendel Clark is you're correct answer Jimmy Jimmy not so bad too difficult yeah in more impressive more impressive was saying okay Sunday and was Quebec when I threw that one in there it solid no doubt and a lot of people would know Wendel Clark was a defenseman when the leafs drafted him. Don't they need to play the second. I don't don't think anyway I may I don't think he played a second defense in the NHL and one of the most successful conversions to Ford we've seen in the NHL history you know he he he plays bigger Russ. He he played with Russ in Notre Dame. They're in Saskatchewan the famous how mind Gary Leeman Russ courtnall and and and Wendel Clark. I'm always amazed even WanNa hear today that that Wendel Clark Small Guy Right with short not really thick you know not not not big but as always in that conversation of absolutely the last guy you would want to get in a fight with Oh yeah oh yeah it was crazy crazy tuffy on youtube I mean I know you like the youtube videos like you're talking about in the last episode and if he's still like the fights Wendel Clark's highlight reels pretty damn good not only a big body checker like he was a guy named forget his name but his name was bell late for the Saint Louis Blues and did window clock ring that guy's bell like just he's coming around behind his own net and Clark comes through and is one of the hardest hits I have ever ever seen you can do that but you also look and see how wonder Clark could fight like he took on all comers. He fought Bob Probert and did just fine for Gaza skilled guy. He was one of the toughest guys ever yeah yeah and and by looking at them you go. You gotta be kidding me. You gotta be kidding me. You know yeah hydrant question. I met him. I I met him and did an interview with him. You know years ago we sorta hung out for a while at one of those does card signing conventions and comics and all that stuff just hanging out talking hockey with the Guy loves talk and hockey and Super Nice Nice guy and and tall at all like I think I'm taller than he is and I'm about five nine five ten something like that and but he was just just gigantic antics on big boned kid and strong as an ox and low key right lucky no talk to him low key for sure okay so oh that is our warranty Super Trivia for today a quick time out here Lincoln employee pricing is back at Jim K.

Today it's Ruins Law Day and it basically is participating schools all across Ontario with new new rules in place around concussions and this is for Rohan Stringer who went to the same high school that my daughter did John mccrea in bar haven and she loved rugby. She was captain of her high school team and she died tragically. After multiple concussions in two thousand thirteen her season that went on reported so Ronit Ruins Law helps ensure that signs and symptoms of concussion are more readily identified identified and so today there was all kinds of assemblies that were happening across the province about concussion awareness and I wonder Jim like you still of his son. Who's GonNa Minor Sports Age? Does any of that kind of give you pause for thought. I'm being really careful here about my take on this. What an awful thing that happened six years ago that you know beyond tragic any of us who have children I I can't imagine I can't imagine imagine my folks went through that with my with my brother he was a little older at twenty one and it just sort of decimates your you know many many years to come for what would otherwise be normal howevert Steve ah the game of rugby man should be out ruled should be should be outlawed outlawed? Sorry out ruled the world championships. Raffi chips are on right now. I don't know what they call it the World Cup rugby or the world championships or World Cup men's world. I've been watching it. I've been watching it anyway that that that that thing is a uh-huh gruesome gruesome sportman so there's there's no question in my mind that the concussion level is going to be rampant in that sport and when I look at it I know my my little guy was playing. I haven't had a chance to see him. Play lottery played rugby. It's a short little season in high school here but I'm not letting them play it man. I'm not I'm not letting him play anymore. He didn't do it this year. I didn't allow it when I see it. It's like this. Do you think there's concussions in this sport and I don't see how you can fix it. I don't see how you can fix it at all. I do in football where they've got concussion protocol and they've got an you know way more severe penalty with hedge head on head shots in football in hockey right they're they're they're starting to get really serious about it with suspensions and hitting guys from behind and head shots and all all that stuff and but anyone who you know if you took some of the community look what we need to figure out what we can do about concussions. We'd like you to look at this sport of rugby that that were playing and kids are going to get hurt. Man Kids are going to get hurt and they're gonNA get hurt badly in that thing so I I am. I am dead against it man. I don't like rugby. I don't like it when I see it. It's just a Steve. I've never watched. I've never watched an emmy fight ever ever and maybe seeing a couple of minutes of it. I may be seen some clips that I that I watch was saying yesterday on Youtube but but those two sports are just are just. I can't get my head around them. I can't even get my head around him. Thinking Oh my God someone's going to die here. Someone's going to die from this thing and this family that went through that. If if anything positive can come out of this thing hopefully it'll get rid of it. They'll get rid of the sport that I'm quite serious about that when it when I say it you know this poor girl is going to be abused as as an example to create concussion awareness but everyone have a look at rugby. Everyone have a look at it. I don't see any way the way the rules are for that Sports Steve. I don't see any way at all that you can prevent concussions from happening. Well I mean I think the I see a sport where there does seem to be more collisions going on. Yes you know like in football for example. You have the guy who's got the ball I shouldn't even say say that the the the offensive line on the defensive line of crash into each other each place so I take that back Steve there weren't equipment why no but that's almost as part of the problem like in football you you basically with rugby. You don't have equipment and so if you're gonna hit someone hard. It hurts like Hell L. and so you have a scenario where I think the you're not getting hit as hard because if I've got a gigantic plastic helmet or whatever the hell football helmets are made of I've and I drive that into the Saudi your head like that's way worse than your drop you know taking my skull and doing it that way. I mean both are bad. Don't get me wrong wrong but it's way worse when the hitter doesn't feel a thing so I think there's more concussive blows probably in the sport of football than there is in rugby yeah. I think that I can see when I watch rugby that I see the potential for more injuries like this seems like everybody's like falling on each other's legs and stuff and I you know maybe not more but as much as any sport out there but no I I can't condone the take of you know. Get rid of it. I think any sport we've got one team team trying to go that way. The other team wants to go in the opposite direction. It's always going to have the potential for collision if you outlawed rugby. I think you'd need outlaw aw probably half a dozen other sports that are similar well. I you know I'm just dealing with what we got right. Now you know and if if you want a team sport there's there's soccer field hockey. There's Lacrosse. There's all sorts of you know. There's basketball there's all sorts of you know volleyball all sorts of other things that you know I'm. I'm hesitant because a little bit because it's all we can do is as parents to get our kids involved in sports when when the social media and gaming and video shit is happening all day long kids are sitting down there basement so originally when my kid came in saying I'm Gonna I'm GonNA play rugby for a couple of weeks. You know in the fall. I was a great great to do that until I saw it and I knew what rugby was but but I you know I sort of forgot that this thing's crazy man. It's crazy and I don't. I don't expect you to condone it but that's my opinion of the thing and I think it's it's it's too tough sport and what if you wanted to play football well football football's running back and stuff like that or even quarterback for that matter you or you're GonNa get hit. I always because because they're loaded up with. I get what you're saying that. The hitter doesn't often get hurt but they but they do. I disagree I disagree guys who've apply hits get hurt as much as guys who take him in that sport and now I'm. I guess I'm a little naive about wiping out some of these the these sports are Tony it down or making touch football all this stuff but I mean I'm not I'm not against what so you're thinking in terms of you know if feels like we're moving toward the you know the full on bubble wrap of of kids and things like that but yeah there's lots of save sports out there were you won't get a concussion tennis's a pretty good one. They don't have many concussions in tennis right all that kind of thing but these are fun sports and the reality is the discussion is not in my opinion anyway about wiping out the sport. It's about making sure that went injuries do occur that the the player for starters has the sense of I don't feel good on the air on the side of caution that the coach when they see someone. That's you know not looking the way they normally do. Maybe there's a glassy look in their eyes. Maybe they just they're not as responsive or they're different somehow and they see a big hit. No Go oh sit down and that's the big thing like football and hockey. I mean women's soccer. Women's soccer has many concussions as any sport. People don't really think of it in those terms does not supposed to be physical but it is and you're getting collisions and you're getting girls getting cleaned out as they try and cross the ball toward the net you know you you randomly see defenders run through wingers who are trying to just put the ball on net. It's like trying to block the ball but at the same time they absolutely devastate the shooter like this all kinds of contact there so I mean I think that's what the day is about. It's not about wiping anything out. It's about dealing with things in an appropriate appropriate way so that when the injuries do occur and it's always a calculated risk that people do the right thing. Maybe Miss my point here. I I'd like what they're doing doing about concussion awareness Steve All sports right. It's come a long way where just what you had talked about. The Glassy is someone get in there. now well they have it where even when they see a hit and the and the kid or the the player POPs back up whips back into the huddle even now they said hey on someone's gotTa talk to that guy. Someone's got to bring them off the off the field get them to the sideline and let's make sure you didn't get concussed. I think that's fantastic. I think it's fantastic that coaches have have been taught to look forward other teammates. I believe have been taught to look for that. I think they've come a long way. Where we're we're getting past this macho stage where you're not supposed to show injury that even some of these players now are are coming to the fold here? It's like wait a minute. You know this this. This thing is a movement here. It's a great movement about becoming aware. I don't disagree with that Steve I I. I love that. Go Watch a rugby game tonight. There's probably one on I watch and many many were gray and come back to me and say you know yeah. I you know I I know that that level of sport at that you know rugby compared to other sports still be the same out of concussions. I don't know I don't know all the stats Barrett out. The stats bear out that rugby is is no more dangerous than any of these other sports. They're all I mean. There's so many there's several liberal sports where concussions are common in rugby's one of them but I think they're less than some other sports and as many as others but again if I think if you're you're taking that dramatic step to keep everybody safe in bubble wrapped and then you've chosen rugby well then I think statistically you're gonNA GONNA have to go over to go after half a dozen other sports as well well the the raw numbers Steve. We're going to be far less straight. Numbers are GONNA would be far less than rugby because nobody plays it that many right. How many soccer teams are there in a city hundreds hundreds? How many rugby teams are they're ten eight you know so I think the stats are there by kind of per capita or percentage not necessarily a you know grand total well well? What if you had a choice? If you had a choice you know if Michael could choose soccer football basketball or rugby basketball choose probably to that group in terms of you know if I wanted to keep him safe but they're on the all give me pause for thought. Rugby included yeah listen listen and one of the greatest ambassadors of rugby when they were growing that sport and trying to grow is is right from Ottawa right Al Sharron right was what was you know award winning rugby he player and he is so mad at you right now. Good listening also mad. He's going to track you take yeah. He's GonNa he's GonNa take me on. I just don't like like I said I don't like. 'em Okay and I don't like rugby. Do you want to get on. I think he'd come on no. There's confidence in your tape Z. Actually as long as we do at Stevie I suspect over the fall in the winter where I'm GonNa come into town to do a few more shows when hockey seasons out here Steve of course I sure that look for today's show just remind if you're interested in helping keep our show rolling on a daily basis which as you can imagine it's quite a bit of work one way to help us through what the Patriots on membership their membership levels at cost less than a pint of beer one time a month. It's an amazing way to support the show of course you supporters as well if you're liking liking or subscribing or sharing the show in some manner whether it's online or in word of mouth may be giving people a hand with how to find a podcast for more details on any of that Steve W project dot com any final thoughts today James Practices by Dancing Steve uh-huh Gertrude go dancing again okay. That's what I wanted to fair enough. I'm not here to judge. That's all I got okay although L. Although I gave a concussion last night to a lady yeah yeah did she go through concussion protocol. I wonder I'm not sure I'm not sure if it's a little much steve because when I did do it was just a little elbow to the jaw or her lower plate came loose in our teeth yeah and I thought she was okay but I went a little overtop overtop Steve Giving her the Heimlich maneuver. Oh no by the might be the wrong. She probably thought you were coming onto her too. Yeah Yeah what are you doing here. She's choking on a piece of steak pal right.

I got the rotten smell in my living room. and. Mike. There's some dead in my living room really like like what kind of like is it a i? Don't know I don't know. Up till last week, I were I. lie down. Stinks in here man you know? Smells like rotten garbage, and so then I fly into my kitchen I got an open concept. All sort of Florida.

Baked potatoes as my mother called them potatoes. Baked potatoes in get some nice mashed potatoes and this has happened in my lifetime would. Right, out of the POT Steve I'm single I are not singling era not single anymore Steve. Well we'll get we'll have to get into that in just that even I played connect play name. That smell can I take a guess? So. So while I was GonNa say yeah, you can. So so I'll ran the and they'll put the lid back on I. Want I've I've been known to put the pots in the cupboard. Steve Without remembering that there's potatoes in there. With the lead on it. That's not. No that's happened before but that's not the case. Okay. Okay. That's not the case. So I can't find the smells. Okay it's. You know it's sort of it's not in my kitchen. Right? My kitchen is. Eight. Feet away from from where I sleep on my couch where I lie around and watch the Games and look I got a chance I wood-burning fireplace I'm looking up the chimney if there's A dead neighbor something in their own. Know. You know lots of people crawling around on the roof and stuff you know doing maintenance and I can't I can't figure it out stevie. So. I got a basement in my finish basement. And my boys pop around once in a while and they'll they'll grab stuff out of the fridge. Up. When they come come over here, you got gotTA bribe them to get over coax and snacks. Pick up some subs if you want you guys whatever the pizza. Chinese food whatever you want. I'm going maybe those maybe those little bastard children of mine. Were downstairs, hanging out. As I got a TV down there. And left a bunch of food. Because like I say it's only in this sort of sort of isolated area my living ruined. So I go downstairs Steve I. I I never go downstairs hardly ever I was there at the time. Was There Steve was two months ago painting when I was doing all that pain I opened the door Steve. Almost didn't go in Steve. I felt like one of those those. Homicide detectives when they come across a murdered body and they cover their mouth saying in the interview them on Dateline and going, and of course, it had that that well known smell of a dead body. Yeah. Right that's what I got Steve You get that. You get that to join me you put underneath your nostrils that they some writings put there to keep the smell away. I. Almost went right to nine one, one St. said. Send send crew over. Okay. Get the forensics team here. There's something going right Well Steve. I walked in. It's. It's pretty it's pretty Oh, there's nothing in there because I painted everything I've I've emptied out my my basement there's. Bad down there, couch a TV. And I walk into the Corner Steve squishy. squishy. Water. Oh no walk what I said puzzle what. OKAY SOAKED CT Steve Soaked and having and has been for a while clearly, if it smells that bad, let's go with two months might be might be give or take a week. On either side. And I'll tell you what that's a good door seal that up kind of but it's was drifting up obviously through the vents after while yikes aches and. Who what happened. So my unit is attached Stevie okay. My my back wall is completely. So Exterior Back Wall. Where we're this is is completely soaked right across I've I'm freaking out I it's it's not standing water, but it's just less than that. Okay. It's just less than that. Soaked carpet is just script right across the floor. And A. So I just did the fresh paint job Steve So. I I immediately. pull the baseboards off I go to pull a baseboard off. And as that's crumbling in my my hand Steve Okay. I'm not lying I sorta. Got My hands. Kind of kind of. Two three feet apart to grab the base where it and pull it off Steve under you know. pry It off the top. I get my fingers in those and I pull the base and all the paint Steve which hasn't really cured yet. It's only been a couple of months comes off like I like to. It's a sheet steve the paint comes off right in a big five, five foot. By three foot cheat on you're supposed to drag a razor blade across the top of your baseboard. Well, I forgot but it's all wet anyway right in the end, right? So. I've had one. Long story short to all the talk to the condo associated. We got a guy here who looks after maintenance Baba they come over. So my neighbor, I, share wall we have downspouts, of course for from our eavesdrop. So you've got the gut, the trough that went straight down, and then you would have the big extension that goes out to the backyard show right to get the water running away. So ours run parallel with each other just a few inches apart well, they're they're they're little extension Steve Okay hasn't been attached for. Okay. All summer. Now it's slipped off Steve So. That was it was actually kind of a relief that that that's what it is a better than. Well, there's nothing that's indicating water from coming in from the outside you know that could be sewer backup, right? You know seven point two, eight, million dollars for the foundation work. Jet. Like they're. So are you hiring a lawyer? You GonNA sue your neighbor your older now is this your older neighbor that has the Thong. No other side okay. Other side. And she had water because she had water. So I act excuse Antler, not I think you should. You shouldn't be on the hook for that while I'm not I'm not. We got. We have a neither are day. That's how good are Condo Associations Are there were not responsible for anything on the exterior of our units including Easter off. So. At the most I might be into a G. Note for damages if I have to do that so. We'll see we'll see what HAP- looking all I'd like to submit that I'm pissed off that I was supposed to get a chance to guess that smell I saw. Okay. Well, he's he took a shot what would you what would you have to? Well, you just recently done on the painting Ansa drywall and you know like a clumsy surgeon leaving his scalpel in an open wound I was thinking that maybe you left an old egg sandwich inside the drywall or something like that. Was One of your cats in their accidentally something something inside the drywall was going to be my guess but I was way off obviously. You're just about maybe sick. There is maybe throw up. Every other certain things people can tell me a lot of things, Steve. Oh that one right there though I take a moment here egg sandwich in the wall. Stevie don't. Really. I've had. That's quirky. Guy. You know I I've sent. You can send your gross pictures of injuries and stuff like that. I can handle that and look at all that stuff someone can go. I don't know there's as much cheese mold growing between my toes or something like that and. And then I let my dog eat it. I don't people go. Oh my God that doesn't bother me. A rotten eggs sandwich though you got me there. There you go. That's that might be in the running then. So what is the thing that grosses you out the most for me? It has always been this way. Whenever I see someone else getting sick. Love that It's like porn to me. This like this share Louis here we'll baby. He goes yellow with. Projectile strong strong feature. So if not that then what? Yeah. I don't know the. Referred the date I went on one time in the chick part of their hair with their fork that was. Almost made me lose. Eating my past I she didn't with it after the cheek. Yes. She's she's a she's a fork waiver when she talks got the right elbow, she got the fork in a right and got the right elbow on the table and waving the fork around APP me and another thing right like our you know really demonstrative. By and then and then just tilts the turns up towards your head. Stephen runs the time sewer hair to move her hair out of her eyes, right right and then fires back into the into the. Veal Marsala. No. Good to take. No good that one Kinda got me that would I absolutely hate and it always gets me not only is it gross me out but it offends me and it makes me mad. It's when I see somebody and it still happens I. Mean it's bad enough when little kids do it but I swear to God over my time driving around Ottawa I'm sure I've seen it twenty times where adult. Males usually are the driver's seat and they're stopped in traffic and I'm right beside them and they're don't tell their digit up the nose all know and then they decide what to long time till dinner. Right. So not only am I grossed out. I wanted to know you're going gold medals on steroids gross stuff. Well, it's a conversation. Anyway the point is it makes me mad like I want to get into the car and fight the person like it really really makes me angry. At everybody. I'll tell you what? Okay that's good. That's gross. Okay. That's why you may even have to leave that out of the show. I know you won't. But Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Well, the subject was things that grow. So. I got to tell you about a a wonderful girl story Stevie. So I've got the kids. When. I was with my ex we took him to Disneyland. Disneyland in Anaheim. California. By the way Steve Land Disney Anaheim's just you know L. A. Really just a few minutes from La. So disneyworld world is Florida. If you get mixed up land L. A. Land Word Land L. A. L. A. and Land La. So disneylands in Florida in California so noted. So We take we take the kids to Disneyland in Florida and. Got The wrong. After the school whole lesson. Its own decides he's going to ignore his own. Disneyland, in California, we take him there and. Have you ever been Steve to Anaheim. I do not know we were robbed of an Anaheim trip the year the sends almost in two, thousand, three, the sense lose the devils in the conference final and had they won game seven, you and I and junior we're going to be doing the show from Anaheim but no, I've never been there. Okay. So incredible. Okay. It's incredible to set up if you think of if you think of. Bank street. Starting north at the at the parliament buildings and running all the way south to where the Lonzo Park areas. Now I I don't know what they call it. Okay. So lansdowne park would be. Disneyland Okay but but it's you know five thousand times bigger than that and so all up and down that street if you think about it's all hotels. Okay hotels and restaurant. That's all it is the whole street. Okay. There's. You can imagine how many hotels around Disneyland in Anaheim and and so we're staying at one of these hotels. Sort of these these Marriott suites where you've got a little kitchen and stuff in. Down on the pool deck? And there's a hot TUB STEVE AN IN GROUND HOT? Tub Akeso. In ground of course, the lip of the hot tub is at the level of the deck. Only right. You would step down into the hot, right? Okay and I'm lying there my lounge Steve Bronze ING UP A little bit. You know having having a fag. Joined the day watching the kids swim and I look over at the hot Tub Steve and there's a lady sitting on the. Deck with one leg draped down into the hot tub. Okay. Got that image I do. Okay. So I'm watching her and she's just swishing her foot around a little bit. You know in the hot tub and and then lift the leg up out of the hot tub Stephen and places it across her other leg. And starts to look at her foot stevie. Okay and starts to rub off stevie some dried skin that was dried ono starts to rub it off. Okay. Onto her hands Stevie, and then rinse. God. Oh. My God. Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing here. Okay. Like everyone Steve talked to anyone. It's one of the greatest fears that they have to get over is getting into public hot TUB. Right everybody you know. Sebastian Mankowski does a hilarious thing about bandies floating in. Hot Tub. I. Don't know if you've ever seen it but it's Bad. It's crazy. So anyway I think I'm seeing things Steve. Okay. And of course, I'm not in goes the foot against wish around, pulled it out, rub the skin off Stevie with the left hand, and then back in the water to clean the handoff Steve with the dead. Okay. With the dead Neanderthal foot skin from the from the hundred and fifty year old looking German lady. Who looks like your feet haven't seen daylight in? A thousand years Steve. Okay. So this is her routine debut God for thirty minutes straight. Okay. I'm the judge on the judge, your murder trial right now and you tell me this story. Mr Jerome you're free to go. That's not enough to go watch watch watch our nanny was with us to gather all the kids around the nangle. Look at look at look at this. Okay. Just. When they join in Steve after I've been watching this for twenty or thirty minutes. Here, it goes St Wa go watch her she goes foot in the Yup Yup Yup Yup foot comes up okay. Got The left thumb. Cake Okay Stevie Stevie. The therm into the mouth Steve with the dried foot skin that she's feeling I'll see yet appeal off to bite her told her thumbnail Steve Okay. Like. Didn't didn't do even do the rinse I if you're GONNA do that steep but she. got a bunch of skin. Okay. Okay. It looks like I mean it just it just looks like a bunch of PABLUM Steve. That's all over her hand from the skin and then and then fires them some into the mall. So does not long ago in the show when I told my story of buddy who was. Early for dinner. You said something along the lines of you're GONNA have to edit that out. That's the worst thing ever. It sounded really like you were going to jump in your car and drive from Edmonton to Ottawa. A good day's drive to make sure that that was going to be edited out of the program, and then you immediately follow up that commentary and discussed with that story. Real Story. Real Story. That's a that's your. That's your gold medal winner right there. So the guy who was the most grow stowed Steve by it okay. The Guy who was the most grossed out, which was the call for action is so I you know this is just unbelievable right Steve you think it was an act. Okay. What I see immediately, Stevie I've fire off my lounge chair. Okay and ripped to the front desk of the hotel. And the guy's giving it. Yes Mr Jerome, how can we help you? I said, well, as a matter of fact, I just need to discuss something with you and as I'm telling the Guy I'm giving them the full details Steve Right. Okay. Good. needs to know. And he's giving it. GOES FOR THE HANDKERCHIEF Steve. He's an old guy he's got a handkerchief. To his mouth, you know freaking out, say, Oh my God Oh, my God you're kidding me and immediately stevie the drain the Hutto. The they shut it. Okay. The did she did she not get her come up and somehow did not so many not tune her up. She was of gone by then I guess I didn't you know I I never said anything. I you would. You know I guess you would go up and go hey, easy on doing the manicure here in the in the hot tub. With the. Jesus. Wow. It's crazy husband tell her children going. You know what? That your mother you gotTa leave. Her Okay you gotta leave her for good forever that your wife. Wife file right now file for divorce rate. Now that's that's grounds for annulment stevie right there well like I say. If you had taken care of business and drowned in the hot tub. And I were the judge of your murder trial and you told me that story the leniency would be high or am I just dismissed the case I understand. Mr. Jerome. I understood I think that that's the gold medalist right now the gross stories I'm going to take one last ditch effort at trying to Z. and try and one up your here. So let me take you back in your mind's eye back to the early. No wait. Wouldn't be early nineties late eighties even my first job up in renfrew. Yeah. But a week or two after I moved in The carpets were not in great shape. So wanted to clean. So I hired at the carpet Harvard high carpet cleaner and he comes in and I bail you know I don't want WanNa be listening to that. Loud. Noise all day and so I. Come back. The. Carpets look amazing like just amazing. But just before this guy had left, he said you might use the washroom and I'm just going out. I'm just going out and I say no problem because you're thinking. You think a number one, right you're not necessarily thinking anything else to do. So the carpets are fantastic. Three shades lighter than when I left. They look great. But then I go to the washroom area. And it's more than what you think it's going to be oh no, the toilet has overflowed completely. And I have no interest in lifting up that LID. But I don't have to. Because spilled all over the bathroom floor was a lake of toilet water and contained within that lake. Almost as if they're small fishes running around. Was a bunch of undigested mushrooms from the meal that this carpet cleaner must have had that day. Call. Yeah I'm just heaving all over the place. But I held it together. But. That was. Eventually had it had to do what I had to do burn the bathroom. Oh, my God. Oh, my God has been a podcast. Is this been a show?

James some sad news today and it came from a fellow by the name of Eric Howard Chuck and he said on his twitter account that his dad former Cornwall royal and Nhl Hall of Famer Dale. Howard Chuck fast away after a battle with cancer and some very sad news. I would think that you look at Gretzky and Lemieux in that era. and. Obviously. They were on an island by themselves. But I would say the Dale, Howard Chuck of course, there's a hall of Famer. He would be Kinda on that next year with guys like Steve Is Herman guys like Brett Hall and certainly some sad news if you're a longtime hockey fan. Yeah. You know what? Steve Everyone has their memories about hockey right there. You know as you do right. You've got you've got incredible memories about hockey is growing up as a kid you know. and. So do I write and hockey when I was introduced to hockey? It was on an outdoor rink and Sudbury in the Welham Part Down Stuart drive at the end playing Adam Whatever. That is nine ten eleven years old and he twelve or thirteen, and and I I wanted to go to Mitch above my rest of my brothers and Sisters Ski Race So my Dad's we're not in both so you're going to ski race. So I never went further as a player you know as as a as a kid. But my greatest experience. Hands Down in hockey was the nineteen, eighty five when I moved to Edmonton with Molson and they handed me a pair of seasons tickets. Company. Tickets. to attend oiler games, and then by the way Jimmy, want you looking after the the that oiler team? Okay. We're. We're a big sponsor and you're GonNa be our rep for that. And I went. Okay. Is this like a different Edmonton oilers than the one I'm? Talking about you know as like the whole world opened up to me the whole world opened up to me. I will never forget those days. Okay. Those those threats traded at eighty eight those years from eighty five to eighty, eight at an on right mess mess Wanna a cup after. Gritz left. With the oilers. And of course, everyone else in that team But I, you know I will never forget those days of sitting in those stands and the whole experience of those guys becoming friends and Dale Howard Chuck the Winnipeg jets were a huge part of that. That's when the the rivalry the you know there was the Calgary Edmonton one but there was quietly this Winnipeg Edmonton rivalry they they faced each other in the playoffs. It was the white out member when the jets started the white out. and. So when when I hear that Dale Howard Chuck dies. For obvious reasons. It's very sad for his family. You're through what you did and we always you know it's kind of a platitude to say to someone when you went through what you did. It could be worse you know it could be worse and and you know it's not worse for you. Stevie in all it can't be her is not worse for me but but it's it's terrible for you and yet everyone says you know, could it be worse than and then when you hear this story today I think I have problems going on right now and then when you hear this young kid and Dale Howard Jerk dying I'm guessing he's older than sixty two or three years old few fifty-seven always okay. Same Age as me ear younger as a matter of fact. It's worse than a lot of Shit that I got going on. But My point I'm trying to make is when I hear that that guy was such a big part of the memories I have sitting in northlands coliseum watching those either Winnipeg Games Jets were good man the jets were good. Really. Good and in the site division those were big game right and so This. Sounds. sort of. Don't want to wish you you know. But but part of me dies when I hear that when I hear that one of these guys during those memories. Pardon me SORTA empties out a little bit. When I hear that from the Super duper strong. Experience I had from the those ladies. Oh God Yeah I. Mean you think about Howard Chuck individually he was one of the top guys. Era. Drafted first overall in the NHL. Those guys always have a mystique about the number one overall draft pick and all those oilers Utah promote. You know those guys those guys are older than this guy, and that's what bugs me about this whole thing because I think of these guys. They were all the stars in my formative years in highschool and and just. These guys can't die right now anyway like they still have so many years in front of them and it happened to Dale. Howard. Chuck today and it was so. So unsettling to see this bigger than life hockey star. In his dying days hate to call them that. But he appeared a while he was battling cancer on a number of like us on Sports Network tsn and talking about his fight but also talking about this or that is far as NHL Memories. Go end he just he looked he was so frail and so. Unfortunately withered and it just it's very So sad and I, feel so badly for the family. But it's really unsettling. If you're a die hard hockey fail truly love the the game in that era to see what cancer can do to someone like that. It doesn't matter if you're kajillions air doesn't matter if you're a superstar athlete, it doesn't matter. If you're someone like my dad cancer is diabolical. Yeah and we're at that age now. Steve Unfortunately. This is way too young for a guy to die, but but when you start to think of. The next generation after him are going to start to die off pretty soon. Right? The. Search survivors of the world the Dave Qions gala flers the. Wish anything bad on these guys. But you know what I mean though the era that I look at his the seventy two summit series, right? It seems like it seems like every other month someone who played in that series is unfortunately passing away right and and and when that happens right? We're going to stop. And go just as I would say to my kids wait a minute wait. Wait a minute. You don't know what this guy did. Our Chuck, you don't know the experience. that. I had watching that guy play in my hometown rink when he came in and let me sit down Jason why do you need to know what was going on there in the late eighties? You know with with hockey. You know I'm almost emotional when I talk about it now when I think of the Great. Memory. The great memory that I had as a as a young twenty year old watching del Howard jerk play hockey. You know it was I, get it. Now I get when when my parents Stopped Luoi Dad stopped and said, Oh, no ono I can't believe that guy you know. And what he meant. So tremendous tremendous flair some of the stats chuck l., the NHL Record for youngest player to reach one hundred points that record since been broken by Sidney crosby and You know just a terrific player he had said coach of the Oil Joesbury colts until he came down with stomach cancer in the fall of last year and passed away earlier today certainly some sad news in a what we all know. What would be right there and everybody's discussion everybody's debate most famous goal ever scored in the sport hockey Gretzky, lemieux and eighty-seven. That would be right there. Right and Dale Howard Chuck was the guy took the draw that Dale? How trump was the guy who had a bunch of key goals in that series and there is no Gretzky lemieux with a deal Howard. Chuck. Yeah. Yeah. Right, right Yup. Copps Coliseum wasn't Hamilton Shirley was Dan Kelly with the call you know and let's play it right now Gretzky Lemieux in eighty seven Howard chuck right there on the face off and right there in the celebration. Our dropping. Backed off our. Review. Good news those Gretzky Lemieux. Gretzky lemieux from Nineteen eighty-seven Dan Kelly with the call I think we. Got It off Youtube I'm not even sure who to attribute that to maybe see TV I I forget. The. Lawyers come knocking. Just let it be known I made an attempt there to attorney. All right is certainly some sad deal our check on listen stevie. Yeah absolutely. Stevie? Yes. How many shows have we done? Three, fifty, three, sixty, four, zero we're honing on three fifty but we're at three forty, three, I think this one is, here's one thing you do not need to worry about anymore. Anymore from this day forward. If the lawyers haven't called you yet Steve After three, hundred, fifty shows about something we're gold or gold. You. Probably Right I've been playing a you know a famous rush song off the top of the show lately in. San Felt okay about. Not only that you're talking about patents and trademarks I'm talking about the Shit we've said, Oh yes. Yes. I'm sorry we have another call from a lawyer yet from someone going. It's someone on the line. Steve about defamation. What's that of defamation of character something like that? Don't. Want they want you to phone them back. Yeah. Well, the in the front with a show finally explodes and we have. Millions of listeners yet we'll have to pull down a few shows we'll have to maybe get together and decide Okay show number seventy eight. That's definitely gonNA. Go for example. Now more I said, you don't need to be there for the birth of your job. It drop that one. Okay we got we got. We got. Huggies diapers is sponsoring you. Don't think that will ever happen. All right final thoughts. Well. Jeez I almost ended up crying. They're talking about I'm a crier but I. Thought, it was tough for thinking about. My my best memories. I'm lucky is you know and and that was a late eighties men watching the jets and Dale Harkin those guys come in. And oilers always beat them. I'm pretty sure I'm safe to say there I don't think Winnipeg ever beat the oilers in a round of the playoffs but greatest battles though and You know you think you talked about it earlier in the flames oilers says, that's the great rivalry and it is. But man. The jets were right there knocking on the door as well. In another era, the Winnipeg jets probably win a Stanley Cup if not for. One of the great dynasties of all time, the oilers, and of course, the other stories the great one was was. In talks Kohner I think about what was heard that? anyways. Thank you to our chuck for for. Memories that I will have forever. Good stuff. All right. Well, thanks for being with US everybody enjoy your day and we'll talk to you next time. Goodnight everyone. We'll see you.

He'll send me a mocked up. Picture of you know when I said I. Like to dress up like a lady on Halloween. He'll send me this hilarious shit. Where puts my face on these things, so I can't. Wait, to see what happens. Dashing slips on your face tomorrow all right, let's give out a world see. Here's the other thing, okay? So. I find myself. I've got children as you do and. The stuff I did when I was my kids age I did without thought without any forethought right? Good hitting the bar. Going to parties. Going on trips with my buddy. For the weekend. GonNa rip it up at the great cop down in, Toronto, all got we rented a van. We're going right and it was fine loved every minute right and my parents were cool. My parents were very were cool. fact, eightieth birthday to let me go to Florida with everyone else in my grade, thirteen class for man from pious. DOWN TO FLORIDA Do A match so Anyway it was all good. Steal the opening day when my Buddy Stud puked into the pool of the hotel. Not Buddy's name is stud. Well, it's it's Stevie Iraq. Okay, just gave his name. We call them stud, but it was short for student. Anyway, I did when I look back. Now that I'm a parent, okay. I? Don't know if you go through this, but I go to the thousand miles an hour right away when my when my kids tell me they're doing. Fairly innocuous stuff, Steve and I go right to the IT's like okay. I'm just GONNA run over to the grocery store with my buddy and pick up some snacks. You can get shot. What you do and You you might get murdered. What what is going to the grocery store? Yeah, but he's the way things are these days. Okay, so I. Don't know if you go through that right, but I generally. Go to that level. You know on stuff where I'm going. You know someone's got to calm down Yup okay so fair enough steam I've had I've had to regroup. Okay I've got to settle down about stuff you know. Off to a party Awa-. What party? Who where? What? What's going drinking? What who where what you got you got your cell phone on. Right I. Don't do you go through that Oh. Gone. Yeah, yeah, I'm sure they. Did you know for our parents? It would have been nice. It's it'd be nice if there was a sort of a way that you know your kids could experience parenthood and go through all that, and then zip back in time armed with all that knowledge so that the kids would go a little easier on their parents and make their lives knowing that they're panicking over every moment, a lot of cases and make their lives a lot easier. Here was my first indication that I was gonna be an the top panicking parent when I I took my kids that I remember as far back zero to a park. Okay. Okay, you know you did that with your kids. After dinner, someone grab the kids get up to the park for an hour. Wind down right so you got the little. The built in toys or equipment whatever they call it. This stuff that they build their amazing right We ought park. There was a fucking slide. Okay that you actually burned your skin off because it was made a metal right the shiny hot fucking metal. And yet the adidas shorts on and you. Go down the slide. It'll well. I burnt the back of my thighs. Do I have to keep going to throw a little water on their something? You remember that thing that awesome metal slide was. The worst was the worst. It was absolutely the worst, but now they've got these unbelievable playgrounds at bill and I remember that in the first time I looked out in the backyard and my kid was. You know ten feet up in the tree. Okay Fuck, throw everything down. Get down from there right now. You're gonNA Break Condi-. You call the Fire Department. I gotta get my kid out of the tree. And or be careful. What were you doing there? What are you doing I'm just walking across this little three-meter, little wooden sway sidewalk. Dad that run that goes across this piece of equipment. It's fine. Okay, define this ropes. So if all, that's not bad enough, Stevie, okay that. My overreaction to these things I'm laughing at myself now as a parent. I got this little thing today. Steve my my ex wife is taking my son their mother GonNa Burn BC about ten hour drive. Get the some. Friends of ours and stuff that gone out to visit. So. I get this. Video. From ex wife going. Check this out. It's a plane taking off from runway, Steve, okay and she's there with their mother. And this little Cessna little small planes, Stephen a little plane single course, yeah! As. Hair Goes Wyatt my son. He's off skydiving. Okay. Here's how that sounded by the way here's the audio. It's actual audio from Jimmy Son taking off an assessed of this morning direction wonder if he's going through his mind right now. I could see how that would be concerned. Did you guys have a conversation about that happening? The guy running after my kid when he leaves, the house doesn't have a bike helmet on yeah. I'm going nuts. It's one thing to be in an airport and watch your child taking off in. Like a seven, forty, seven or something, but honestly I'll be honest. Cessnas looked like they were built this morning. These fired together with an L. Ranch. Yeah! He's off sky of course finally. You know I've been telling him for years. Okay, throw caution to the wind. Put Your Life on the line. Do a little fucking skydiving. What'd you come up this riding around on your bike? Shit. Risky. Oh my God steamy. Skydiving. That's that's next level stuff. That's well beyond any of the park stuff. You describe that stuff. That definitely would leave me a little unsettled for sure I mean I I mean. My daughter drives home to university, and it's about a three hour drive and. I can't wait to get that text that she got there safely but. On the other hand, it doesn't sound like you would be i. don't think you'd have the stomach to be parenting. An autistic child that was that was an adventure unto itself like we'd go to the park. We'd go to the park. I'd be alone with with my son and my daughter. My daughter would be like he'd be around six or seven and my. My daughter would be around three. Know a little unsteady with all the stuff that happens in a park that'd be focused on her, but I also have to be one hundred percent focused on him, and what his deal was was every bit of danger that existed in the world like you know an open car door I better climb in there and listen to the radio. or he literally WANNA. Go in anybody's house. He wouldn't. He wouldn't knock. He would just walk in because he knew somewhere in there. There was a computer and there might be some cool stuff to look at her, so, but he had no no filter that way no sense of is this a right thing to do. Is this socially acceptable? It just with autistic kids a lot of them. They just don't get that, and so he would do. Do all those sorts I be focused on Lindsey over here. You know making sure. She set up her little teeter. totter thing and then turn around gone again massive parking i. don't see him anywhere. In all of a sudden I see I. see door in a garage about four hundred yards away. Maybe he went in there and have to stick my nose in. Did A boy come in hair? It was constant I. Tell you constant Jim it's. Or you know what else. Steve is, take a look at a beautiful shadow box display of a priceless collectable jacket and smashed the glass. I'm going to wear that to school. That deal Stevie. I wasn't any happier than you were. Yeah. It'd be the famous Gretzky jacket that that you gave me as a gift. One of my favorite things that I own and my son decided that made no sense to have a jacket inside a shadow box as a frame. Crack that thing open when my back was turned. And as we're going out, we had somewhere to go. He's sitting in the driveway going. You know that we're ready to go and I'm like what did. Why did you do that? He's wearing. The jacket is way too big for him and I said. Why did you do that? And he said because it looks so good on me. Yeah, look so good on me. Not just any jackets from the Salt Lake City Olympics. Remind you that. You bring up a great things, the hilarious thing so. I'll tell you this absolutely. Crazy moment I went through the babysitting. A relative sun. Out here in Evanston and I piped up, said look all Steve What's his name. Steve, winter, my my ex wife's brothers, kids and So I said I'll take for the night. We can hang out. We're going to build forts and all that stuff and Sunday morning and you know they're up the fucking crack of dawn, and you know, meet with Moore grabbed the kid. Let's go to the park okay. Six fifteen in the morning or something steep, Beautiful Day. And, so it's just him and I in this park. And I when I go to a park with the kids, I gotta immediately find a hiding spot where I can smoke. Okay well there whether playing. I got my eye on them Stevie. Okay, all right. But so I'm in this park. There's there's. This is a long time ago. That kids twenty five now so many years ago, but there's not much in there Steve. Okay, there's not much trouble here. The couple of swings Stevie a little big bouncy thing on on a spring that you go back and forth one of those deals. Okay, not not much there sure so. I don't know I'm I'm not reading something. Just look at around Beautiful Day. And then I glanced back out of the park maybe five seconds later. Steve Okay from what I saw him. And I look out and I can't see him. I'm going. Where do you go I? You know and Steve Not about this is in the middle of a Bush. This is in the middle of massive amounts of open field. Okay, like everything around. Okay, not like you can see for hundreds of yards on either side of this park right right and. I go what what the free concerned get over. Okay, so he's you know. Hey, Steve, that's good. Where are you now? Okay, this is that's dead I that. He said he's GonNa. Look after someone's kid and we're. Okay no answer Steve. No nothing okay. This is good. stevie funny, the sort of fake nervous ha chuckle. Okay No, Steve, no nothing less wind the head. Okay, let's wind it Steve to the longest fifteen minutes of my life. Okay! Do you know how long that is when you can't find a kit? In many times okay, I'm going. Where where did he go? Right, What he did. Steve was finally only out of exhaustion that I found him he. You know the you know. They'll take big tractor tire. Steve's in parks, and they'll bury half of it in the Ground Yup. So he climbed up into the top of the tire. And suspended himself up in there. Okay and GIG Lloyd. Giggling away, and and the only way I've found him as he just completely collapsed flam and fell onto the ground. Gets. Fuck tired. Like anyway was like. For can do that again. That again. Any had my share those as a kid I'm sure I almost. I probably took twenty years off my grandmother's life one day. We're. Basically! We're at a as a new home build, and there was a foundation so just picture of foundation stage and the way the foundation was set up. It was like I don't must have been like A. Twenty foot drop fifteen foot drop the way this foundation was on the side. My Grandmother was on and I'm sitting on the top of the foundation on the far side, and so one might naturally mentally assume there's a fifteen to twenty foot drop on the far side as well sure. When in reality, there was only about maybe about a three foot drop just enough to cover. Yup Manageable and I decided. Hey, grandma. Look over here and I fell backwards. And, and in her mind I've fallen twenty feet down to the asphalt. Below on my head, she thought I died, and I was a snickering away and man. My grandmother never once got mad at me and my entire life, but that day she just lost her. You know what she was so scared and. So. I've had my moments as a child, and so a lot of my childhood misgivings, my Dennis, the menace moments as a kid I feel like sometimes. I'm being punished for those in my adulthood. Right! It's like it's OK Steve. Even Grandma's lose their Shit Owino. So how this this moved, so when I was a kid, my buddy Martin Martin trainer Our families go to a church picnic. Okay, every summer saint. Patrick's parish church picnic on a lake. McFarland Lake in Sudbury and we'd go down the play all the game. Stevie okay three legged games. Kids would swim. Swim in a million parents, and all this stuff in carry the egg, or whatever on the spoon, remember those fucking lame tricks, lame games it's it's Oh. No. I dropped the egg where today. A sack races the three legged races, or or you hold the guy up, and he's got run along in his arms, and you got by the lakes that just slow bicycle race, the slow by scoring all that stuff you know so. I'm I'm over at their SORTA. Little Picnic Table Okay Martin's table with his parents and I I tell Martin's mother. She says we're going to go and I said my mom and Dad said it's okay. If I go go home with you, guys. We were neighbors, right. And she goes Oh okay so a jump in the car. That was not true Steve. Okay I. Never told I I never had that discussion with my mom and Dad. So I. Fuck off from this thing around lake and now my mother's going. Where's where's jungle? Okay. And they can't find me. How Okay I don't even if I you know, I don't even know if I can tell you, Steve. How much trouble I got in when they actually got no cellphone. Steve when they actually. Got To phone home or arrived home, absolute panicky and I'm the splashing away in our pool. And that's sides. There's no strategy to it right. There's no there's no parenting strategy. It's just they're in full on panic and they're just exploding. Just. How could you do that to me? How could you make me feel that way? And that was the same with my grandmother in the story. I just told there's no. There's no thought of the doctor spock. parenting, book or anything like that. It's like it's just like. All right now. You little bastard. If you ever ever do that again that the other ones before this is Speaking a bad parenting, so. I. Look Out! you know you're talking about. You're sitting on a wall or see your kid up a tree. You know go. I got I got to keep an eye on these kids. You know never anywhere near what you have to do or what you have to do with autistic child, but. I the window Steve from the second floor of my house. There's a window there and it looks out over top the garage. Okay, which is a peaked roof, okay? And I look out one day and I see a chair. On top of the roof, straddling the peak, so two legs on one side of the P. Okay Oh very precarious position Steve for charity yeah. So, how did that chair get up there? Okay and So. Jake, why? What's what's this here? Yeah we! We climbed up onto the roof dat. Gave Wyatt a boost. Off off a bike seat. That was the he got up there, and then I climbed up there and we drag the chair up there and we sat on the chair. On the. My God Jesus Man. Apparently. Why would anybody take any Chilean that he had I? Don't know is what's the danger factor here? Yes, the risk factor of something going wrong here he's. All Right? Let's take a timeout here on the parenting show. Let's do it and when we come back. Will a flu cram a little? Out of context sports we want to get into.

So experts believe Edmonson will change its EFL team name. I Guess Boston. Pizza has ended their sponsorship. While direct is rethinking its premier partnership, and this all comes after the Washington redskins of the NFL announced earlier in the week they would retire their name and logo after pressure from sponsors. And what do you think the Eskimos going to change their name? Well what do you hear a couple of interesting things here? Taking taking nothing away from the great support that that you know, let's not kid ourselves Steve Sponsorship corporate money makes the world. Go Round Right, and if you don't have it, you got no, you got no sports. You're no teams. has to be. However I think some of this stuff. You know with Kovic hitting. Everyone is directed. Affected directly from this thing right? There's there's of a laundry list of people who are getting slaughtered again. from golf courses, poor golf courses out here right so the green fees are way down and now we've had shitty weather, so it's just like. How are these guys going to survive? You know But the sports world to of course rate that we were fully aware of what's going on. I think I think some of this stuff. Has Given. An excuse for sponsors to pull out. In Boston. Pizza's a fantastic unbelievable Canadian. Company Jim Tree Living The guy from dragons. Den Is the guy who started Jim and they. They do absolutely wonderful things all over the place I I I don't want I don't want to tag them with this, but but I think you're gonNA see a lot of this week. We're companies might be able to say okay. Let's get out we got. We got fucked. We don't have the money to do this anymore, so You may be seeing some of that a little bit, but let's assume that that legitimately this is what's happening. You know that that sponsors are pulling out as soon as Steve as soon as there's been pushback. Started saying this earlier. As soon as someone and pipes up and says you got to change this name for this racist reason. For. Showing these people in a negative light you know. Indigenous people is is the big one right that with the names of sports, teams, particularly NFL romantic. Teams. And Baseball. I think Steve was just changed the name. Okay no problem. No problem. Let's let's get rid of the name. CHANGE IT I. Don't believe it cost a bunch of money to change the name I don I don't believe. I think what's happening. Steve is an immature. Thing from a lot of these teams because I. Don't get why they wouldn't just say. Hundred Percent Times have changed water under the bridge, no hard feelings to the PGA originally out the name, no hard feelings for the reasons. Attitudes have changed for the better so. Gas The name and let's go. Let's go the new one So why aren't they doing? It is the question. Why weren't they automatically aren't? The Atlanta Braves of Chicago Blackhawks to Kansas City chiefs on and on. And the reason I think Steve Is there going. No one's going to tell me what to do. I I can't think i. that's what I can't think of any other reasons that they wouldn't do it. Well I think that's for sure. True of the Washington redskins led by Dan Snyder their owner because he does seem to have that chippy attitude. Don't push me around on the billionaire young. Don't tell me what to do with the CFO I. Don't know I honestly don't know the Eskimos ownership team and the. The, you may be right. I think certainly I would be concerned if I'm an owner of the team, and it's a small thing. Compared to offending a group of people just the tradition of it. 'cause tradition is a big part of sports I think we can all agree on that, but just the fact, because as we talked about in an earlier episode, they've recently wrapped up a three year long review. which to me is already admission that you have a controversial name at the very least. Just a study like that like Hamilton. Tiger cats aren't doing that anyway, so you've even admitted. It's a controversial name by having this review. And so they decided back in February that they would keep the name because in the review, they found no consensus which again gives me a message that there were at least some people who were offended by it, and if that's the case, then maybe move on from it. First of all the Schuster. The CFL operates on a shoestring budget. They're just trying to survive year after year right. They're trying to lock. Television contracts and sponsors and So. You've got this absolute nightmare to run a sports league And, then you randy ambrose you there. The commissioner I think not too long ago. Made this appeal to the federal government for a bunch of cash. Right Oh. Yeah, hundred fifty million wasn't. I was a bunch of dough that everyone went. Oh my God. They must be in a really bad. Position here to operate right so. It's not surprising, right? It's not surprising that that this thing is always a struggle always in a struggle to make money. So now you got the Eskimos. Who who's you get this ship? You know in fairness to these teams to right. They're trying their best to market the team to promote it to keep the price down to make it family friendly, all sorts of stuff to make the game day experience, and now all of a sudden. They got whammo. You've got to change your name. Fuck what what yeah and if you don't. If you. Don't change your name. We're pulling our sponsorship. If you don't change your name, I'm not renewing season tickets. Okay? If you don't change your name, I'm GonNa. Whack you to death on social media. Okay and you're going to get you know so to me, Steve. Change the name. Change the name. If if you have no more reason now you're getting a sponsor. Bake sponsor. Big Supporter sports big charitable contribution. They make to this country in Boston Pizza. Okay now, these guys pull out. Okay. I am in that office. Today Steve in that office right away. Going changed the fucking name right okay. And I don't get I don't. They're harming themselves every single minute now every single minute that they don't come out and make an change that name. The auto they. If advertisers pulling out if advertisers have found reason that That they don't want to be involved with it. You know it makes it mean the CFL is you know it's not a major sport major league and You know they've got grab supporters where they can. You don't want to diminish your potential pool of advertisers with this kind of controversy you. You just don't need it and You know they'll be those who say that it doesn't offend me. Tell me how Eskimos is offensive. There are people who would prefer that not to be the name, and it's about what it's about them. And it's it's a reasonable take because you've decided long ago of course to name your team after a specific group of people, and if you're getting pushback from that group of people, it's time to move on from the name in my opinion Yup. Yankees right and they go to sell sponsorships right? It's worth a lot of money. It's worth a lot of money right? Why while they got twenty million freaked. People who live right around the stadium. They th they've got an unbelievable following right? It's crazy if you're the CFL Steve, I mommas sure I can't speak to it specifically, but I'm almost sure that a lot of sponsorship is out of the goodness of companies, hearts, and that they're not getting the value for their money. You know now the league will probably you know if they ever heard this? They go you kid. You're killing me here, you. You know that there is very but at, but I'm sure it's not I'm sure there's a lot of people say I feel obligated. You know as to support this thing to keep it alive, so you're you're you know you've got these people stepping up when it's very hard to sell your game Steve, okay, there's just not the crowd. There's not the audience for it. You know people say there is but. So when you do get a sponsor, you better hang onto the guy right. You know you better. Hang onto what they're doing now. Steve is do not give the sponsors and excuse to pull out. You know they're looking for it. They'RE LOOKING FOR IT Steve. You, know and I. Don't know about that I think that. But it's a possibility. Some do yeah for sure. I don't want to speak you know. I don't want to paint every. advertiser with the same brush I'm sure that many of them are very numbers based, and they look at the ratings, and they say okay we're in, and that fits with our demographic and off we go, but I'm sure you're right about some sponsors that have like you know the CEO of the company. His Dad was a massive CFL fan. His Dad played on the CFL or there's some level of connection that sentimental more than financial. Yeah I'm on the Board Steve of a charity of choice of mine. Okay, and and we have fundraisers. Okay, we got we. We need the Dole okay. And we're nonprofit and we need the money and. We have a golf tournament that we have every year. We couldn't have it this year, but we have a golf tournament every year and we we don't make about you, we we we try and make ten grand. It's not like we're making a hundred grand and and of that. That money comes whole sponsorships. Okay, five hundred bucks to put your name on a sign sponsor our whole. Okay, there's no value there, Steve. There's no value right. You're what what what am I getting for my money nothing? Okay to be. If you're looking to exposure you know isn't GonNa. Drive people to Your Business. The honest answer is no, it's not. It's not OK and yet they step up. Step Up. I'll do it for the 'cause. I'll do it for the cost. I'll give you the five hundred. And I'll do it I'll do it for as long as I can, and every year I go back to these guys and God. Bless them the all right the check. The, check. What you don't want to do Steve is is. Is You know screw that up? Read Right, screw it up by having some some comedian come into entertainment I. Don't mean me, I mean you know some guy to come in. Entertain and go off you know and go off at this thing and people get upset and disgusted by perform whatever he did made. You know hate, slurs or something, and then these guys come cap sponsor your vent anymore right right, and so so I sort of look at that like the NFL. In Oh we've stepped up been there year after year. Happy to do it. You know and I'm doing it for the 'cause. I'm not getting a real value out of it. You know right, and and so now this thing come forward and the guys go out. I'm out Yup Right? Do you remember one of our sales? Guys back in our bell media days. Do you remember Brad Boeckler? Of course, yeah of great guy and I I'd like to them a couple of months ago down the swan here not far from my house and and and and reliving old times and stuff and I got to thinking about. A story that very much addresses. What you're talking about in that Brad was always easy going and he's always laughing. He's always a big fan of the show. And and we got along great, but one day there was a radio ad that was featured. George in Louise Jefferson. So the actors who played them and The line that was some kind of line from Louise Jefferson, the actress who played her until the show Jefferson from the show the Jeffersons exactly she was known for a very deep voice, and now she's well on in years. The jeffersons has been off the air forever, but the actress comes on this TV commercial for whatever the you know. The business was is and she says this does remind me of when we were first dating. I was having fun with it and then Brad. Brad called me in the office later in the day. And he said Do not make any deadly serious. Do not make fun of sponsors ever and you know, and because we're always so kind of happy. Go lucky back and forth. I was trying to laugh it off a little bit. Do, not fucking make fun of the sponsors and right I really got it through my head that day. This guy that who got along with famously we never had a cross word this one time now I'm cutting cutting off his livelihood and now all bets are off. Right as bad stevie as bad as that. We rent out our house on Ainsley. Drive there when I was doing the show and a bunch of kitchen cabinets put in, and they were missing one of the cabinets, it was back ordered little broom closet. That goes beside your fridge. Close. And it was back ordered made a call. Sorry about that yet. We're completely aware of it. As soon as it comes in the boys in their. Never happened. Okay, never happened. I remember calling it a month later and then sort of forgot about it. I'd like six months later looking up when we're the. Cabinet you know and. Whip into the show the next day and launching launch into this bad service deal okay from. Whoever it was. Kitchen crafter local. You know so. We might have been someone local. And launch it right good good little diatribe year. I'm going to go off. We all pay for Surrey. Can't get what you get what you pay for all this shit. I thought it was a good deal, but Moore well. I didn't know it at the time, and then after the show, not even after the show, the guy with the sales is pounding on a window. There get you know freaking out He happened to be there when he heard me do this, and they had just signed thirty or forty thousand dollar advertising deal with the company. Yeah Yeah like that week, they had just signed them up. The ads weren't out yet, but they were being produced and ready to go and I took them down Steve. Tau. Innocent mistakes totally kind of innocent mistakes. So compare this to what what what's happening with the ESKIMOS, you know and and I. Just I just can't see any reason at all Steve when I make my list of pros and cons on this thing okay. I see no pros. I see no pro with keeping the name the Evans Eskimos and I see a fricken a long list here man of reasons. To change it, you know so well. Let's I mean from a traditional standpoint. You would like the Edmonton oilers to keep the name oilers right like he is a necessity to it. This tradition and it just It makes you feel good the oil industry, I get it, but I west here, but just in general like you would prefer that. They didn't show up one day and become the Edmonton Tigers. Tigers or the Edmonton hunters named after that Horror Mascot. You guys have right You wouldn't really feel that anymore. Because that's not really the team name, this tradition and I think if you're an Edmonton Eskimos fan, you're feeling that same tradition as well if you're not offended by that name, and you love the team and you're not really understanding what the pushback is all about i. think that's where. You do have a slight downside, but I. I understand entirely what you're saying. We got to go my friend. We gotta go yeah. Anyway just before I. Wrap this up. The other thing that people are forgetting Steve is is. This whole issue of maintaining sponsorship maintaining season ticket holders. Right is the great reason to change. His name is one of the one of the obvious reasons to change the name what people are forgetting is change the name. You may get New People. You may get sponsors right. You may be able to Jack your price of it is going to be people. Go you know what I'm glad you did that I stopped. You know five six seven years ago when this was originally came up and I'm going to be back by tickets. You know so an another reason you know and new team Steve Do you think a new sports franchise which start up all the time. Are GonNA. Do Anything, but have an offensive name. Of course, not we. We actually had a team here in town. It was a fledgling pro basketball team and I think it came along I want to say about five or six years ago now and the whole world. The whole world was shocked by the fact that right out of the gate knowing everything we know right now, and how the times have changed. This team decided to name itself briefly very briefly. The Ottawa Tomahawks. Oh, no ono! Did you talk to anybody that? Oh my God anyway and I. Think you know I think. Ironically that the reason they're not doing like I. said earlier is no one's GonNa. Tell me what to do right right that that they get in this position of saying you know it's like we talked earlier on the show yesterday. You know. You go to your neighbor and go clean up your yard. Know get the dog shit off your patio a lot. You get a lot of pushback. Don't fuck and tell me what to do. It's my yard right? Okay and Eskimos I think are going to that. Don't tell me this is my yard. I'm the President of this club I'm the CEO I'm on the board of that. We're not and yet if they did say, we've listened to you. Okay, and and we're GONNA make the change. Position now that goes to a wicked position of strength. How many people WanNa work with this club? Now tons rent, so do you admit you'd? You'd feel it if the oilers? Let's say the orders happened to be. Offensive, that as a name, of course, it's not, but let's say, was he? Party would feel it if you personally didn't feel the offense, and you love the team and you love its history of success. You would feel Kinda bad. Wouldn't you would feel kind of regretful if someone was Yank? That team name away, and they became the Edmonton Tigers while the yardstick. Steve The measuring. Stick on this would be Okay, here's the only reason I might I might agree with you that you are considering this. Okay, so I want y. you haven't made this change or what you're. You're considering and the only thing I might consider Steve is if there's a huge outcry from present day season ticket holders saying if you changed that name I'm not renewing my tickets right? Okay now you gotta now. You got something going on here right, but I don't think there's a bunch of that Steve. I haven't seen a bunch of people say if you get rid of the ask. I'm not coming back to the game. Well, the Nice thing is that If they decide on a nickname that starts with E., they don't have to change their logo. They're doubly logo. I suppose to what the Washington redskins had to do where they you know, they have to come up with That not only lose the tradition of the name, but of the logo as well so it's a it's brand new, so any sort of discussion with the Edmonton Football Club about losing links to the past. Well, at least you, you still have the same logo A couple of things on the NHL before we wrap up, you got your three NHL. Coach of the year finalists that have been announced, it'll be Boston's Bruce. Cassidy Columbus's John Tortorella. And Philadelphia's Alain, vigneault and your rookies of the year would be dominant Kumyk. Quinn Hughes and killed Macara. And MacArthur is the guy that the avalanche drafted with Ottawa's first round. Pick that they gave away in that Shane deal, not knowing of course the pick would be that high McCarthy has been really really good I was kinda hoping he wouldn't be nominated so that I could yell to end the Shell. Dude, where's My car? Famous movie, famous horrible movie, Dude! Where's My car? Yeah, exactly what listeners we want to keep our listeners all right. What what the ESKIMOS could do Steve to be on offensive. You make a good point. How can we keep the double e.? So you, you go with. The Edmonton everyone's a knob. That's your best. After ripping my bad joke. All right well, enjoy your weekend Well our next to the next episode drops early Monday morning, so we hope you'll join us then in the meantime have a great weekend. We'll talk to you soon. I got lots to say next week's Stevie with percolating. Stuff. Good night everybody we'll see.

And then we'd never be apart. We'd never be apart. You know you could say hey Siri. Good, caught stevie. How are you Jimmy? Series, still going off. So I've got a question for you. Steve maybe a little poll question. With with how unbelievably! Crazy. These phones are the stuff they can do. What do you think will be the next big thing that a phone will be able to do? Wow! Nice thought. It's just constantly gets you know every time there's some new thing ago. What the FRAC-? What are they doing now? Oh, yeah, you can. You this four cameras. Four cameras. What am I? Need that I, need four cameras. Case so there's a bit of a stop down. We just had because in the midst of celebrating all the great things about the cell phone. I eight minutes of the show where basically US working with the hot spot on my iphone, and it immediately capped out as if to say Oh yeah, watch this not that good right. Imagine how I look at it. You probably know what a bunch of this stuff for years, but. I'm wondering I'm wondering what would be the next big thing you know. What what? What someone's someone's GonNa? Come along and they're going to say something I'm GonNa? They can't. They won't be able to do that. Come on, are you kidding me you know and. The IPHONE Stevie put out of, business. Unfortunately the professional photographer you know for the weddings, graduations and all that. In fact I I haven't seen one in such a long time. It was complete rarity when we had a little social distancing. Graduation Ceremony for my kid and nine of his friends and. I'll tell you. What the most brilliant idea. Ever. Stevie for graduation. I don't know if we talked about this or not. But so you know you got to suffer through the three hour convocation thing. The dumbest thing in the world that they just walk across the stage and here you know and here's Betty Galardo right Congratula next next next, so because of the Cova. A mother sort organizing look well, let's she. She booked off a restaurant. They were happy to do it because they're just back in business. And you know like every every kid. They got a little. Click their students of their friends, and so it was nine kids. Like photographer showed up, someone hired of Harvard to get their pictures down at the legislative ground, zero? It was pretty cool, and then we all went to dinner. like twenty of US went to dinner. Nice meal. Someone got up and. One of the teachers you know showed up and spoke about each kid, and then if any kid wanted to get up and say some boom whammo Steve Wam Hour and a half out hope. Every graduation should be like that. We don't really give a shit about the other kids. You have to sit through a lot of that type of stuff. Right, you know when you go to assemblies and you know when parents are invited indices, a concert and used to have to sit through so much of. This is C. of humanity. They just don't care about seeing Oh. Look at that. He can play the recorder. I'm always W. at least you're in the middle of the pack with the Jays as a w W surname. I was generally the guy that walked in an hour late. Knowing full well that it's still be some time before my kids got up there, so no. It's a great idea, so because my my son had. Lots of friends when the nine or ten of them were the pack of those kids. Those were all the guys that we we. Had for this little ceremonies fucking brilliant. You know I've said everyone should do that. Anyway it was the first time I'd seen a photographer in many years. And you know they hate to hear that I don't I don't even photographer because they got my iphone. And then they've been trying to pitch it going. Yeah, but it's not the same and all this other shit and then the other day. I. Saw for the first time a post. This someone put up on facebook or something like that picture of a flower. You totally detailed highlight looks frigging real high def. Beyond belief, and it was from a professional photographer admitting. that. These things are really good. You know these phones are crazy good. and. You know that's that's someone who makes are living out of it. Saying that so I. Wonder I said. Well what's next? I don't know. What do you think it'll be next? Stevie well I think they'll. Improve the cameras for one, although it's hard to imagine it getting much better. Than what are they gonNA improve I. Don't know it's it's. It's you're right. It's gotten to a point now. Where the human eye is not going to distinguish any further improvements. It's the same way with TV. Right like it's. We're ultra high definition or whatever stage we're at right now. It's like yeah. That looks the same as seven twenty P or whatever? But I don't know. There's lots of Is a case of. Were to stage now where the phone can control so many things via Wi fi. That you know you see people that are just sitting in their living room on the couch and they can control pretty much every electrical function in their house from their smartphone, and I think that. You can build on that with various things you know. Start my car, or whatever I'm sure that exists already, but you know there are probably lots of applications from that foundation that are coming down the pipe still. I know what it's going to be stevie. Good. Okay, so you guys, you know they show you this right and it's like the first guy first time guy showed me go. Look at this I have my phone on on my camera on panic. Panoramic view. Could swing it all the way to the left. You can do this three hundred sixty degree picture you know. What the how were they doing that? I know what it's going to be. Stevie hit me the next big thing. dudes going to be sitting beside me with his camera. Maybe. Maybe, the restrictions and left will be restaurant. Look what I got going on here with this new four. Okay, you know what's going to. See through going to be able to take a picture of a check. You. Can See. What's going on underneath or close? My van, some sort of thing that would measure. The sense of humor you have and what level of? Juvenile it is. That's where you'd run into trouble. The most I suggest that's the default. Oh lucky is at P, poo poo level. Wow, there's gonna be a big thing. That's his. Don't waste your time. I want to get into this. This NHL story about because we've all been looking forward to the NHL returning at some point, we had no idea when until this week and we now know that gradually. They're going to start training camp this coming Monday. We know that about a week after that start reporting to the hub cities Toronto Edmonton, and then on August, I this whole thing is going to begin. What it didn't really get my head around was how much cramming there was going to be shirk. Obviously, we know the NHL in normal circumstances puts on their Stanley. Cup, playoffs tries to spread it out so that the biggest number of fans can watch. The biggest amount of hockey, mother, Cram and hard. There's a proposed NHL playoffs schedule. That's outright now. That is suggesting fans are GONNA be able to watch fifteen hours of hockey. Per Day. Bob Mackenzie says the NHL. Restart the season and looks like. If. This thing goes down the way they think could be a total of six games a day. The Games would start at noon and the final game would start at ten o'clock eastern. So holy man, I'm like as much as I love hockey, not many people. I think alive. Love Nhl, hockey as much as I do the probably are some, but not many. There's no way in hell. I can sit down and watch six games of NHL. Hockey for two months. Well they're. Seen yesterday Stevie. When you were producing, this Hispanics cast talking to rusty. Really really. It's an unnecessary thing sports right now. Okay, it's you don't need it. Okay, you think you. Do you think you do, but but you really don't. however they've. They've fallen to this this pressure. I guess of fans, sponsors and all this stuff saying. We gotta get sports back. We gotta get sports back so. So, normally Steve something like that you would sort of. Phase in okay and when they used that. When when they used that little model when they're talking about, we're GONNA phase it in I laughed my head off this morning. That saying okay, here's the here's the little subtle phase in. We're going to do whammo fifteen hours a hockey a day till everyone drops dead, you know. So it's sort of. You know what's what what happens. Steve Right today for example in my town in Edmonton, which is a hub. Is what I thought might happen. And what are they? GonNa do then is. I live five minutes from one of the hospitals here in the West End and And not only do I only live five minutes from that hospital, but I do a lot of shit around that hospital. Like the home depots there there I was going in and out when everything was sort of laying bulb I got a little less twitchy. The Tim Hortons I go to his right across the street. That hospital has I say the story. It's. It's shutting down because of. Massive wave of cove it is. It's called the Misericordia hospital here in town and I'm a little concerned that they chose the word misery. In the midst of that hospital name misery Accordia. Weird Anyway Razi like the number of Cova cases basically redirecting anybody who comes the beat it, we can't. Get help you right now. We're just like in a full facility outbreak with Cova. Yeah! So. There's always that and and that's what I thought. It was going to be lurking I. Just think it's too I. still think it's too early, but hilarious that. You say look at where we're taking NHL going. We're taking all precautions you know we're. We're abiding by all the restrictions from the from the health. Organization, silver, just GONNA, throw together fifty dollars, a hockey people coming and going. And? All that stuff so. It shows you everyone's thirst for it I guess. that. It's tremendously inconvenient for everybody. Really when you think about normal times and then compare it to what we're about to go through here, it's just. Bizarre you're taking players away from their families at least in that sort of first qualifying round writing of the inconvenience that we're talking about here. If you're a fan, you know you're. You're probably a ravenous fan and you WANNA watch as many games as possible. Now you got to an opportune the six games like I I know there's some circumstances in the NFL where they're playing in Europe, so it was like a ten am game on Sunday than a standard one o'clock, and then there's one around four something and then the finale on Sunday. Sunday nights four football games in the same day. I've done that a couple of times, and like I'm growing roots like I'm I've got I've got source on my body by the end of the dam. Kidding of course, but you know now. We're GONNA. Go with adding two more games on top of that. It's inconvenient for the fans. The fans can go. That's that's inconvenient. You know if you're a fan of a team. You want to be at the playoff games. You can't go, and then the I'm looking at this morning I was. Guys were planning. INTERSQUAD game in some. They scored a goal. And the just the goal celebration look ridiculous is normally. It's like high fives Etihad, hug and stuff now it's like they also get together and do this ring around the Rosie thing in sheer to two meters apart. It's just so weird. Everything's just inconvenient and weird about it. And so I'm hoping it's still going to be a worthwhile exercise. When I compare it to the standard I, keep thinking to myself well that that angles dumb that angles dumb. What's that about? That's silly. Well in a contact sport, yes hilarious that the goal celebration you have to be. Six six feet apart or something. They're checking each other. It's just silly, silly job. Anyway They're forging ahead. Stevie forging ahead so indeed there. We'll be getting into actual hockey talk before long we've got. You know that the weird qualifying round with eight series going eight teams will move on. Eight teams will immediately go into the draft lottery for a chance at number, one overall, which is among the dumbest things I've ever seen in pro sports, and then on top of that you get the four top seeds in each of the eastern, each of the conferences that will be playing a round robin to decide on the top four seeds. So that's the gist of and we'll talk more about that in the coming days, because August I is still a piece off, but at least we're moving toward. Some legitimate hockey talk more to come after this. I am Jair all Insurance Ontario. The temperature in the insurance market has changed.

I told you many many shows ago about the. Got The dude we I got like a ten square foot patio. Sliding doors at the back of my house I got a little fire. There stevie low firepit. With the propane fired up and You know a while back. The guy was pulling out his a leaf blower. All right my neighbor to blow the leaves off of the equivalent of a large dining room table. Steve, okay, that's how big that is. Okay so steve that would be for. This is real time. Done okay. You have done. Hour and a half Steve the. Got The blower what? Hour and a half out there moving into the end and this and that and doing the neighbor and trying to get not just off the patio, but we're GONNA blow them over way over to the other side got a greenbelt behind. Let's get them to the other side. fucking leaves Pal. Okay, their lease. Trying to build a fort or something with these things, okay, that's a bad neighborhood, a rake and get a bag and. One tenth time in another Rake Steve not, a Raikov a broom. That's all you need for this. Trying to get the leaves off the whole yard or something like that, but I'll William. That's dumb. That's ridiculous. So it got me thinking about the bad neighbor thing and you'll probably remember when I moved into. An ainsley there right at Maitland. Right around there maitland in the in the freeway and the Queensway. So bought this house. You asked all the right questions Steve. Schools out there. Right near a good bus service although. Going to think about resale down the Road Yup, lovely Almost you know, there's no multifamily developed single. Okay good. We don't want that. So we covered the whole gamut of the right questions to ask. The one I forgot to ask Steve was. Does the guy next door by any chance have a vicious dog. With kids and my kids were authors almost stevie when when we bought that house. Obviously the guy. Who kind of dog? It was a Rhodesian ridgeback Steve Okay I don't know. Anything about their giant. They've they're about the size of a pony okay. and. You gotta chain them up Stephen. You take him for a walk and. Where's this I'd never heard of this dog? Well. Yeah, they were. They were trained to hunt lions what? Yeah you look it up Rhodesian. Yeah, that was their whole thing. They were breed it that way. To take down a couple of pack alliance. That's that's what this dog can do. Okay, so I see this guy walking his dog, Steve with the equivalent of six tire chains around jaw. You know well. He's out there. A chain also for the leash. You know and you've got to the guy, so we are chain link fence between our two yards, and the guy was out in the back. You know talking to him and he said listen idea i. just thought I should let you know. I see your kids playing in your backyard. Goes if they come near the fence. Only they sort of grabbed that fence. My dog will rip their hands off Oh great. Great dog to have in suburbia. So I didn't know what to do. In fact, I was telling mayhew. He was funny. Still telling me you one day, my our boss there the manager. Tells the story as well. Here's what you do. Okay, because I'm panicky now Steve I. Go on a better. Put Up. You know this thinking hunt lions I guess they probably need about twelve foot fence. You know can probably scale a building. Okay and make it. Make a building on a concrete. Because the you know, this dog could. Easily steep. Take down a chain. Link fence locks Johnson there. It could drag this thing. Fuck it over the Woodruff Avenue it had to so mayhew, said it kind of works TV not proud of it. So I went. So he's kind of crazy. Right does neighbor. That's kind of crazy that because what I wanted to say. I got a question for you. Why would you have a vicious dog? Steve Okay. Let's just go through that whole thought process. You're going to look a little Maltese terrier. A, little a little Shitsu or some little sharp pasty. NOPE NO I'll go at that thing. That's eight hundred nine hands high. And it's not just his vicious right. There's lots of vicious dogs, but if there are smaller like you just talked about then well, that's that's something you can work around this like this is a dog. That when it gets in a fight with a Lion Ken win. invert the king of the fucking John Goal I know. So. What do you do? Steve The house was bought. We've moved in. You. Know like I said and go over that with a tick. That box with the real turn. What about this. Neighbor anywhere around okay and. So here's what I did. I went home on day out in the backyard again and the guy was there and his dog was. His dog was anchored to a concrete block ship. and. He's kind of pulling that around. And I, said Hey. Pete remember he was. He was no pete. I remember that. Yeah, yeah, because he fucking snowplough, he got pissed. We'd just snowplough everything into my art and I call them over, and I, said Hey Pete listened to you. Don't worry about your dog, okay? is in the backyard and my kids are there. But I'll tell you this. If he comes near my children, I'll shoot it. Wa? Looking after his dog now stevie okay. Yeah. Yes, who put up? The fence? TV didn't cause me a dime. You know. All so me, so what happens Steve! Is You gotta you gotTa fight fire with fire. Right so I'm in the House the House. Sit Down with me. This crazy this time over. Fight crazy with crazy. Stevie well done fight crazy with crazy. You know the Rhodesian ridgebacks original name was. An African Lion Hound. Suggesting this this dog. Clearly based on the name that the dog can hassle ally in. It's nuts I I'd no idea that the dog even existed. I'm looking at a photo and a Mike I understand your concerns. And it looks like it's on steroids to like not only a jerk, not only insanely strong and fast, and all that stuff and big a by it looks to rippled like it's looks like it would fail the drug test. Yeah Anyway. We learned our lessons team. When we bought our next house, the guy was kind and he came over, and said you got young kids, and if like, why don't you come over one afternoon? And they can pet the flock of alligators we have. Oh? Okay Yeah. Everybody sensible. Style petting pool. But the same Steve you know Bob for apples, and through a free few parameters in there for the kids. Trip my face off, so they might. Diplomat risks a little bit, but they'll be fine. They're young girl back. That's the challenge of it all. It's entertainment, I. I WANNA. Hear next shows the on here. You're bad neighbor story, get. Done and done ladies, gentlemen.

Steve W PROJECT DOT COM. So Steve Worn here Jim Jerome there and lots to get to today James how're things good stevie good brother playoffs are on one of the highlights for me always during the playoffs. Besides the obvious of watching the games cheering for my team. The. Fifty fifty. Okay. When I was in Edmonton. Fifty fifty fifties has been been around for a while the when the world juniors were here. I was sitting in a box of course, steve the only the only place I sit in watching game time. With with the great one and there were a bunch of scouts from the Kings who happen to be there watching the game scouting, of course, and the fifty fifty. Was a total of two hundred grand. Okay now, I've been a sense games. And they're always like twenty five or thirty grand and Edmonton is through the roof. They're they're they're bumping up in Ottawa now because they've now they're not selling tickets online. So if Be a from your phone at home. While you're watching the game, you can buy tickets so they've moved up, but they're not quite where Edmondson was. So I'm if I'm around Steve I'm a good luck charm. Okay. I remember. Going to a big horse race in Edmonton years ago and the guy was sitting with won the race one, two, hundred, fifty, thousand. Okay. Yeah. I was at his table he was the owner of a horse. In a big stakes race or something like that and. And he won. I was sitting beside him. I can't. I can't tell you how many people have been with playing golf. Who've got a hold on one? Okay. Numerous numerous times be I've been playing with people and you still zero right? No I got to I got to do. Nice. Yeah. Yeah. I got to and by, but I've been with tons, absolute tons and I. my most favorite. was my buddy. Tom. I went to L. A.. To watch a couple of games and play golf, and of course, the world opened up to us because. The. Gene was there and he set us up playing golf and went to dinner that he was being honored at and we met players I sat in the Form Club At a table with. Craig Stadler and. A bunch of other guys who are playing in the was it was just great. You know, and then the highlight was that says you guys gotta go play. Bel Air Country Club with right right in the heart of Beverly Hills icon at golf course and Tom, and I go there about three hours ahead of time and we're we're hiding and checking out like Bob Newhart was there and James Garner. A bunch of other guys they're playing gin in the clubhouse and we were like. Against the window looking. Like stockers and Anyway, Wayne couldn't couldn't make it. He got busy and he sent his lawyer their. Guy Named Ron. Fuji Cower. He came flying in the last minute. You sit down Wayne campy here and and so I'm going to play with you guys and off we go and this guy. Is. Hardly played very much golf not a great player, right? Anyway sort of breathless getting settled in running with caddies getting through the first tools we get to the third hole. Par. Three and this guy knocks in all. Okay. I hardly knew his name Steve Okay and and to make. What to bring to the point where it got a little uncomfortable as This guy knocked it in the cup. And thirty seconds later he said, okay. Well, you put me down please because I wrapped my arms around him. See I love seeing people get. Jumping, up and down with the guys. He goes put me down. Anyway. I'm sitting in a box during the world juniors in there in the right up there and the guy sitting beside one of the scouts for La wins the fifty fifty. Right in front of me pulls out his tickets fifty, fifty, eighty, five, k, the guy wins. Okay. So luck of the Irish. fifty-fifty today. Okay for the oiler game. which happens in this evening and a few hours after this. Is Three hundred and seventy thousand Bucks Holy God some members of the Edmonton oilers you don't make that as his salary kidding but a lot of. I'm telling you the toll. That's that's the total purse. Okay. It's actually three forty one in. County. And, of course, it's all online so you buy one. About fifty worth. Stevie nice fitting. So. I'm good luck. I'm telling you I'm ver-. I'm very good luck. We'll see we'll see and this things over Steve if I, win it. Was a great run. Okay. Okay, you can keep trying to. Keep trying to get me to come online and do this thing but I'm taking some time off at least understand. Yeah I'm taking some time off at least well, I mean that's a lot of money but I think about the huge chunk of change that you're getting out of this shell. That boy that'd be that'd be hard to talk from at the end of the day. It's like a fifty, fifty, one for sure. How `Bout Warren Buffett and Bill Gates only given their kids ten million or something. Right. They're leaving them or Yeah Bill Gates. and Warren Buffett Warren Buffett called it. What are you? GonNa Leave your kids you know and they're worth I know billions I don't know what? The one, hundred, fifty, billion, some crazy number. That's crazy. And He said know I'll I'll give them enough. I'll give them enough where they can certainly manage but but they'll still have to work. Again. Ten million is still enough to spoil a kid. So you're either all in or nod like if you if you don't want them to be spoiled, you want them to. Learn the value of a Bach and a hard day's work. Maybe the play there is to leave them. I don't know hundred grand or something like that. It's a buffer, but ten million years still pretty much spoiling them at the got. Know Steve Guys with one hundred, fifty, billion. You know it's like listen. I don't expect half of it when you're on the of knockoff. But throw me like they should be getting ten million, a month steep can allowance. They should get anyway Warren Buffett. Interviewed him about it. He I think it was his famous line who said. You know what they happen to be members of the Lucky Sperm Club. So. They don't deserve a bunch of money that's a catchy name for club. Seattle didn't think of that instead of the cracking. Yeah exactly. The lucky sperm. So Hey I think gates is doing the same thing to or something. Anyway playoffs are here. He asked me about it and the fifty fifty is is a big one. Of the other things that I liked so tons going on right now I mean. I don't know where we're going to start dwayne Johnson buying the XFL Yonne assessment is goes missing in Action Austin Matthews, given it to Steve Simmons, and let me that's what we'll start because a lot of people. Are Down with the leafs. Abusive beliefs or helping the least one day when the Stanley Cup again. But after the game where Toronto loses the opener to nothing to Columbus. A man thinking about that it's just an aside the kind of money you're paying for those fords and they go out and game one of the playoffs and get. Zero. Goals. Anyway, Austin, Matthews was not very happy. This is what he had to say because Steve Simmons rolled up with a question about the Columbus Blue Jackets and this playoff series Austin. It's one thing to hear about how tight they play and even watch the films of how tight they play what was it like to experience it Unfortunate getting a question from yet this. But I certainly appreciate the Article Your MONTHS AGO I. was asked to be honest. On I thought. Early, structured. So. There's Austin Matthews talking about Steve Simmons not very happy with them. It's not like he went crazy wasn't livid with him, but he made sure to get a shot in there. Would you think two things? One I loved it. I mean could you imagine being a player? We've we all know from all the players and all the media guys. Gordon Wilson always said. When you when you go into, Toronto has a media guide. You know the the hated lease he said it's the worst worst town to go and we're city to go in to try and do normal interviews and try and lineup guys and all that stuff you said they're they're almost. Gordon will be pissed I guess about this let's forget I said Gordon Okay. A friend of Mine Stevie. Any said they're almost they're almost obnoxious about about trying to get interviews. Locker room access stats, notes, and all that stuff. You said, they're just there's kind of snobby about it. All you know so. That that. You know if you're a player, it's it's the same deal. Right? Toronto is over the top if you if you play of with the exposure. With the constant microphone in your face the fans. Torching you absolute torching you if you play back game. Big overreaction all the time fans this game was no exception. Okay. The game was no exception. Simmons obviously said some derogatory bottom. So one I liked I. liked it. I like the kids really what he was saying is. PISS OFF FUCK I in their heart-to-heart Steve. You know how many players would the really WANNA. Say What? What Austin Matthews did well, let's get some clarity on what that derogatory thing was to reset that for those who missed that story it's probably a few weeks old now but during the whole Kobe Pause Steve Simmons came forward and. That Austin Matthews had had a positive diagnosis and that's why Matthews was super pissed off. It wasn't just some random assessment of the guys hockey. He basically said you know I'm I thought that was unethical of you to do that is he right? You know the first first and foremost Steve is we got a pandemic going. Okay. We got pandemic going. Why should sports be the exception of not being able to to call guys out or at least a name people who have covet and my reason is because it's A. It's contagious. Because I, get it if I came near you, you know if you don't tell me. How are you going to stop this virus? If you don't let people know who has it but no one does that like it literally doesn't happen. Should though it should it should. That's a fair point. Yeah. Your Mailman Steve. Got Kovin. They're. GonNa go to him and say Okay Gimme a route Gimme your your your mail route, and we need to get a hold of everyone and say, look you need to test. It's not like everybody around this guy isn't being notified. What we're talking about is a national newspaper columnist giving it to the world telling everybody in the world about it and that's The unethical part if he were to, he had it everybody around would have been informed. It's not like they would have been keeping that a secret, right the the other side is what you want. You want to keep things low key steve if you're a player during the playoffs okay. You don't WanNa Cause Distraction you WANNA be on time you WANNA give sort of. You know non-conflicting answers to stop you WanNa give pat in full when they ask you a question and so I think if I'm the coach of the leafs, I'm pulling Austin aside going okay. Knock it off with that Shit right now. Okay. We're down one game we've. Got To win three here. For you to. Go. After that guy that timing Austin terrible terrible timing. Okay. That Sabre Right now, and you're down one nothing in a very short series. Your team is you know not hanging by thread yet they will be if they lose the next one, but it does at least create the optics that his head is slightly distracted I. I don't disagree with them though it's as if you wouldn't want to kicked out media, guys Terry Jonsman prolific sports writer for the sun chain has been around a longtime. He makes it a sole mission, Steve, his sole mission, every article that he writes to come from a different side. Okay. And that ninety percent of the time it's going to be very unpopular with the player, right? He's an incredible writer. He's a great guy. They threw in a hot tub one time. There was so pissed that the other Yeah Steve Simmons has that same kind of thing. Right? He's the same kind of. Not, a contrarian, but he doesn't mind taking an unpopular opinion of things and so yeah, he gets a lot of flack for that. If all things were equal though and it was just some rank and file writer, you never heard of, you might cut him some slack a little bit here at the start of covid. It's not like there's any hard fast rules about covid. We've only known Kobe existed for the last few months here, and now at arrives now this. Is All of a sudden. There's a stigma to telling people that that the guy's got a covert nineteen test that to me seems weird when we so freely about pro athletes tell the world he's got a blown out knee he's got a separated shoulder. We don't give it a second thought and the only reason to not put covert out there is because there's a stigma they're embarrassed or something, and I don't think anyone should be like look at the stats on. Cova. Like millions of people have come down with this thing it's no more embarrassing to me any way than than than announcing that someone's got the common cold or that someone's got a flu in, they're going to miss a game. There's no stigma that I don't think too bad voice that we have to say this. This is a virus that people pick up by coming near. You know again. I totally disagree with that I'm really sorry you know that that you have covert but you need to tell people I just don't understand why anybody. So sensitive about you told people I have cova it I don't I don't think there's any any embarrassment to that, but it's it's I. Guess at the end of the day if that's what he wants, it probably should have been kept private but I just don't understand exactly why it's so sensitive to be honest it's like it's like. You guys who? This is terrible but you know child molestation. victimisers when they go to jail to get, you know to go to court they are found guilty, and then they get the get out of jail right. Onto, a list this guy lives in your neighborhood. Right. Is that a is that an infringement of your privacy? Maybe. Too Bad too bad. You know. And but they don't make a national international announced voted they tell the people that are affected immediately around them and that's the same with Cova if I got it Steve if I got it, I would I would tell you and I think Austin Matthews probably did like he probably everybody in that room would know everybody in his family would know his neighbors would know so but no, that's not an unreasonable take. It's just not how they're doing things right now. So it's going to be interesting in back to your thought about the leafs and and some of your. Former NHL Bunnies who talk about how hard that place to play is like I think that would be as big a reason as any if you're piling it up, Harold Ballard whatever the whole nine yards I think that that level of pressure that level of. Magnifying. Glass of they haven't Toronto as big a reason as any that they haven't won a cup since nineteen sixty seven maybe maybe was at Bryan McCabe who played in Toronto got traded to Florida or damp. Yup that's right and his lawyer his comment after was I found it impossible. Live a life there. Something like that. Something like that. He said, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. And had nothing to do with coaching or other players or or a bad record with the team. Or anything like that. It was like this thing is unbearable man it's overwhelming to plane the town and he was completely honest about it. So I do believe it's different. I do believe it's different than you know some people say all shot up. You're just crying the blues because. These, guys have one shit. You know they've won shit in the last fifty years. Yeah. So. We're looking for physical distancing of a different kind in Toronto physical distancing in general day to day from the fans from the media because literally they're all over them like they are in no other hockey market with the exception of maybe Montreal well. You know after that first game I read some comments, Lee fans are everywhere okay and You know a lot of them are innocuous. Come on now, you ought to believe let's go. You know they only lose two nothing Steve, but many of them were. Like freaking loaded loaded with vitriol, you know saying God's Fu leaves your pieces of Shit. We get paid that much though at least an effort no-one fucking gave a shot, the goaltending is obsolete. Can we ever get a goaltender who tries? These guys lost to ZIP here, Steve, they didn't lose eight one. I think you look at that. The way that game went down it looked to me when I'm watching it like the most insurmountable one nothing lead in the history of playoff hockey like Toronto did nothing in the last five, six minutes of that game. I don't even at a shot in the last five minutes of the double checked out they accomplished very little and so therein lies the frustration because right into the gate game one Columbus looks like the better hockey club and the other part of it is and we talked a little bit about the uniqueness of the best of five right We had the stat one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six, last time. They had the best to fives the game, the team that one game one, one, every single series, and that's the level of obviousness to that. But that advantage when you think about it in these circumstances is even greater when you go if you go down to nothing in a best of five series, which is so so short I think you're even bigger and bigger the bigger trouble in these circumstances in a best of five because you're not moving anywhere you're staying in the exact same environment normally you're down to nothing in a series you travel, you go to a new place you get away from the family or you. Arrive and see the family you you mix up the Mo Jo here you're in exactly the same environment across the board I think it's going to be even harder for a team that's down. Oh, two in a best of five to come back in a series in the bubble situation you know you'll here's here's stories under normal circumstances. No Covet where teams are going bad and they do something extremely off the page and the teams have regrouped. There's a great story in Saint Louis Berge event I think is now the GM of Montreal or has been for several years. So he was a roommate of Jeff Cardinals. When they played and? He wasn't dressed for this game and. They're they're getting whipped here. Okay. They're getting. They're getting crushed through two periods they're down. Two or three goals or something like that and they you know they. fucking drudge their way down the hallway into the locker. Room. At, the second intermission and they all got their head down and the coaches fucking screaming at them and all that and then next thing they know they they look up and they hear blasting. From. Behind one of the doors in the Locker Room Kung, Fu fighting. Okay and outcomes Berge. And one of those blow up inflatable costumes you don't like. The Goodyear Guy. And starts to do karate kicks around the room. And I'm jeff tells the story just like everyone was ripped nodding locking. So hard you know in the super high stress, super pressure situation and then when the game and though in the game and Courtney another team mates is safe. It was that was a turning point for the game. All right. Let's take a timeout on the program. I wrote when we come back, we're going to smell with the rocks got cooking after these words.

All, right. So dwayne Johnson Johnson the rock is buying the xfl not a Franchisee. No not a franchise, the entire League and Wide say that yeah that's I mean those are the show ballers would know the sounds exactly like something. Spencer, stress more would do in bars. I don't know the show ballers. It's great. You love it I think it's wrapping up now I don't think they're back for a season six the rock is A. Former. NFL Player, who's turned sports agent. Going to parties make it happen? It's quite good as we all know the XFL got off to a pretty good start in twenty twenty but cova took it down and they shut down in March. grumpy. They listed ten to fifty million dollars, worth of debts, and of course, Vince McMahon who runs the WWe, which is where the rock was born. Basically dwayne Johnson played football the University of Miami and the Calgary stampede is but he became famous for being a wrestler and I wonder. What the relationship is there between dwayne Johnson and Vince McMahon because if they're at odds or if there's a beef there I mean what's better than a situation where can take your enemies dream and make it your own right? You know I'm not a business guy but a couple of things on this that that sounds like a great deal. That sounds like a hell of a deal I. Don't know you depends so much debt you have to incur here right from the business side, right? So are you picking up the data they writing a bunch of it off? How's that all works? So there's that's a that's a pretty significant side of the deal. So I don't know what it is but fifteen mill. Being given a League I mean Vegas and Seattle just entered the NHL as expansion franchises at six hundred, fifty million dollars apiece. Yeah. This is pretty good and I think it has a chance even more of a chance. Now once cove is out of the way obviously, but it has more of a chance. Now with someone who's likable is dwayne Johnson is as the face of it. Right the other thing is Steve, a lot of these. People will say involved in that League or other leagues that you know even if it you'll hear this a lot even if someone gave it to you for nothing it's not worth it. Okay. It's not worth. And this virtually has nothing. Fifteen mill. Devil is worth nothing. So I really liked the guy I really liked the guy because I think he's doing something more on a charity. Then he is out of a business proposition maybe it's hard to say what what the future is. I think if Cova continues and they go immediately to a bubble scenario obviously the, xfl, you know they tried to hang in there when Kobe I hit but. No fans equals revenues and if you get into a bubble scenario, then maybe there's something there. But we'll see I'm a big fan of Dwayne Johnson though so I hope it goes well, I don't know anybody who doesn't like dwayne Johnson he's just. A really good likeable charming guys kind of guy. You'd meet right away. I'd sure like to be friends with that guy. Love to hang with them. Love love got hammered with them. Here's the other thing Steve if you're. I never I was never big on. Sports that? Were at were a branch off of of another major of the of the major leagues. Okay. So the NFL is the nuts. NBA Nhl O'Keefe soccer and all that Shit right. So there so you hated the what back in the day well, my point is the the NFL probably loves the the XFL being out there. Okay. Because if you watch an XFL game Steve or arena and now now I think they have. was originally arena football and now they're plan. Full full field aren't they like like football? Yup No no the XFL. Oh Yeah xfl is exactly right I mean. There's a lot of different little quirky rules in there, but it's basically American football right. But when you watch it when you watch it, you know you're you're like watching the Korn ferry tour it's like watching a triple basketball game. Triple a baseball game is watching a college. Basketball game all of you look at it. This is good. But what someone says he media is like you should see the NFL if you like this. You you should see Major League baseball you should see. Pro Pro pro basketball right. So I would argue though that it's almost undefinable to tell people the difference between say triple A. and Major League baseball, the xfl versus the NFL like the athletes are incredible. The difference is is the star power and that's what you lose. Right if you spent nothing but time with the second Tier League got to know all the teams. Got To know all the players and really got intimate with all of it and understand who's The star player? WHO's the bad players Blah Blah like I think you'd start to embrace it. That's the difference though that all the top teams always have they've got a great heritage of stars that have basically flowed through time. Yeah. It's the struggle that women's hockey has Steve. And they always will. It's a great game, the League's. Women's Olympic program the women's hockey pro hockey league that they're trying to find a place. It's the best women in the world. It's the best woman in the world and and I know it's this uphill battle to get sponsorship to get paid money. To get to get you know rink leases and all this stuff. But always in the end, always in the end, right? Someone's always right behind the gone not the NFL man, you know poor women. Trying to trying to get this thing and I, think these other sports xfl and other people trying to branch off the only the only thing I think might work. Is. And I got a tweet today from some guy or message is this three on three Hockey League Steve. That they're talking about right with we've talked about that but. There's eight eight hall of fame guys. That are coaching. Remember that story that was a couple months ago. That thing I might have an interest. I might have, I, might have some interest in watching it because it's such a big departure from the normal rules and I love overtime. I love overtime I. Don't like to shoot up but I love I love the three on three so I don't think it'll be good for the NHL honestly I know that the everybody who's involved with the NHL or cheers for the NHL the kind of snickering at it. But ask yourself the question. What do you love the most when you watch him regular season hockey? What's the most exciting part? It's one that three on three hits I think a lot of fans would feel that way. It's like when the third period comes to a close and it's still tied, you're like, right? Right, and everybody loves the three on three. I think it's still suffer from the same problems. All these other second tier leagues do a lack of familiarity with most of the players I think they'll be mostly guys you've never heard of but If. If it does get legs. And people start kind of going over and I think the NHL might find itself in a and maybe a problem place. Yeah Man. We'll. We'll see I. don't I don't think it will have that big an effect, but I'm interested. I'M NOT I'M NOT I'm not interested in I. Don't like watching AAA baseball. I do I think the I think the thing is when when you compare it to like the ladies The difference there is that the women will never ascend to the NHL. not to sound sexist, but that's the reality. I called triple A. Baseball for many seasons and one of the things I loved about it was that these guys are future stars eventually baseball that they have a chance to ascend. That gives you a little leg up on other second Tier Leagues and I think the xfl might be that too I. Don't think a ton of guys come of that league and go to the NFL but certainly, some will the NFL season when the xfl. Gets going has just come to a close. So there's no NFL players who have any affiliation playing in the xfl. Scouts will wander in there. Have a look see if there's any diamonds in the rough and there's always that possibility and we'll see I think the rock is a better chance of success if you know what I would like to buy Steve What sports wise if I had one shot and if it was for sale. I would buy. The world junior hockey. I would love to own that thing loved on it. So that goes against my argument, right? It's not they're not the best players they're not the best but holy fuck is it good? They're the best in their age group and the and the audience, the audiences there they love it. As long as hosted in Canada and nowhere else. Right right. The states might work. The states might work if it's down there but it's Something that loved it. Yeah. Me Too. It's great. Okay. We'll call it a day right there. I know it seems like we just got started end before you know it comes the time we have say. So long long get the ear tug in their. God. Different Tugs. Stevie. A. Awful of. Good Buddy we'll see. Until forget to share the show Steve W PROJECT DOT com. Dolphin skin. More.

She's <hes> she's like nice and cool like icy cool like I can turn the frithjof cool and I kind of like it into more standard radio contests cool you. Do you ever have any thermostat wars within your family. I did yeah I used to for sure you know. There was a great great. I don't know who the comedian was.

The House was the only guy control the control the thermostat and this is sort of a visual but let's get it and so of course the answer all the time was I'm really cold was put on a sweater right. Don't you're not touching the thermostat put on a sweater and then he went on to say your mother and I are just fine as they're willing back to giant glasses of Scotch. We find the place just perfectly. Clearly we find a perfect temperature but anyway I you know what I did. I was just said Nope. I just went to the thermostat anytime I wanted Steve and put it at any temperature. No matter who told me what that's all I did live is not. There's no rules here. There's no thermostat rule. Okay none of that I get I get to put it. You put what you want and all we could. We could just back and forth all day on this Stevie. If you want you and they were roommates setting the fucking thing at twenty two. I like it up there a bit but I'm like you. You like you don't like it too cold now I just I totally uncomfortable. I am I gonNA put it on but not like a Hoodie in the middle of July here and it's blazing hot there. Isn't it yeah we've had some hot days for sure we'd have been fire last night in the backyard that was real nice heads of friends over and then the well looked like the end of the world type storm coming and pretty Madan rained us out completely really nice backyard. I Steve here. I'm the bonfires and everything back there. Oh yeah that's great. God love a good fire. My place is so small Steve. I just go out and and light to fix when people want later. marshmallows patio just came back Stevens at a Sunday dinner so my my ex wife's mother fantastic great lady <hes> Donna <hes> hosts Sunday dinner. She's been doing it forever since I've known her every Sunday my mom used to do that. As you know you might have even been over the House for the odd Sunday Dinner Steve. I forget but <hes> so she does this. I'm back in the Good Book Steve. I wasn't around there for nine years right. I didn't <hes> enough time has passed now right Jerry a window some of the ways <hes> some of the storylines that you <hes> you talked about about your mom in law yeah right. I Shit my pants in front of her one time. That's what you're talking about aren't you. No you're talking about Oh. Oh a necessarily volunteered that one do tell well I did. I was at a soccer game. I was in a suit years ago and I was running to the running for my life to get get there on time to the soccer game no time to change and I was standing there and I went oh Jeez I got to go. You know there's something up here. You know you're in the middle of a soccer field and she was talking to me facing me face to face and eye anyway I ended up charting. You know in my pants yeah so if that wasn't bad enough it actually led to Steve Separating my shoulder of course what happened the definitive next thing. What what happened was a son going? I gotta go home. We live just a few blocks from the soccer field of went straight there. I said I gotta go home. I go home and change and I so I got in the van like every other family does with kids and I. I didn't want to sit down Steve. I wanted to hold myself up <hes> so I put the arms of the with the arms of the seat down and I was leaning on my left elbow stevie holding myself up while I was driving home you know and my elbow slipped off the armrest raided my shoulder yeah and then of course sat in my own feces on the way home to add injury to insult injury. Was that that the mother-in-law story here we're thinking no. I think it had more to do with like I think I want to say doing the dishes wearing lingerie or something yes oh yeah no at the house. She came to visit one day. Yeah and I walked in the kitchen. She was like a lot of older people senior citizens. They washed their hair separately from having a shower right. I remember those days growing up Egli. I gotTa Wash my hair always make this big announcement. GotTa go wash my hair. It's a hair washing night and I came in there. She's bending over the sink washing your hair in the kitchen sink and which lovely lady had dinner tonight <hes> which is good so there's nieces and nephews there so get to catch up with all these kids although the one okay the one niece of mine and her boyfriend were there Steve and how old they're in their twenty s now. I don't give a shit see I don't care how old there you know I just I just know their names as that's all and but they're in twenties. That's you know that's a fair question anyway. The Guy Really likes her okay. They're they're boyfriend girlfriend. Deal Steve doesn't let her go like two feet from the hole. So you know the drill you show up. Everyone gets a drink and we're having cheese in crackers before while Dennis Cook and there's much and he's sitting right beside him because with the handwriting on the back right that's fine right. You're sitting there and you get your hand around the back. You know that so I'm GonNa that's okay that's all right then and then <hes> and then it's time to come in for dinner and they both get up at the same time he he's like an inch fromer still rubbing the back while they're walking into the dining room and the dining room table rubbing her back well was he sits down beside her and he's still got the hand on the back non. Stop Stevie nonstop. That's troubling Steve Steve. I finally told him to knock it off. He's he's eating his dinner. You cut your Turkey Day. You cut the Turkey with a knife and fork and you put your fork puts forth knife down and then the hand goes on the back again well. He's well. He's eating for that. That's bad news. That seems like one of those deals as as long as things are sugary. Rian fine right now between them. It's okay it seems harmless enough but I think if things got a little sideways I'd be a little worried about this dude and how he would react to everything you know what I mean. It's done stevie. The thing will never last the thing will ever last in fact. I sort of embarrassing I get your what are you doing you guys for the hand while we're eating here on the back and all that stuff give her a break so I said there's Never GonNa last. It's not going the last you guys you. Keep that up. I'm that's that's a stalker move isn't it. It's yeah it might be a bit of a stalker move. I don't I don't know notley uncomfortable Steve. It's kind of uncomfortable. It's the seeds of stocking I tell you what if that thing goes sideways. Keep an eye on this dude anyway nice dinner caught up with all the kids and what the very very funny stories is one of my niece. She was explained to me her first waitressing job at a Moxie and Dan how she embarrassed herself. Her table was a group of women just finished golfing so there's for them they came to have dinner and and it was her first night waitressing and some lady said okay. I want to get this and that with the Broccoli and do you know what kind of cheese as it is that they put on the Broccoli and she said I don't.

I you know Stephen pissed because I'm I'm a fan of all the big championships and I just the Te- The tennis I like. I'm a couple of hours earlier than you are so I think it's about an eight hour. Deal the time change so it's reasonable even for me to pop up at five or six A._M.. In the morning earning and flop on the couch and watch and they missed it went on all day you could have jumped in. They're like <hes> I don't know five six hours later still be rolling. It was a crazy long tennis match to decide it. Yeah lived up to the hype keep right number one and two seat Jovovich and <hes> and Federer and a great you know I hope I got to tape tape a bunch of stuff and I'll have to look and see but you know the one on one I gotta give it to them. Steve the old the old one one on one battles like a good like a good fucking boxing match Steve Trading Punches along the way they both could've won. I mean it was basically Djokovic. Federer and Federer ended up with a couple of match catch points championship points in the final and I it just couldn't get it done and Novak Djokovic prevailed after five hours of very tense very awesome tennis Yup. If I'll tell you what though Steve Speaking of <hes> <hes> statistics okay and we all know you can you can have a great year individuals in the game a hockey or football or something like that and you don't win the championship but you could be the you know you could be the leading scorer <hes>. I'm going to read you something about the joke of its federal match that I just read okay on paper Steve. If you heard this you would say a federal must have won the thing he had to have won the thing so he wound up with two hundred eighteen points federal got two hundred eighteen points to Jovovich as two hundred four fetter at twenty five aces to joke pitches ten federal broke him seven times Jovic only three total winner Steve Okay total winters right you would think in a tennis match Federer had ninety four and Jovovich had fifty four okay <hes> so he he slaughtered them in the stats he slaughtered them in the stats and yet Djokovic ended up winning the match interesting that second set I think was really one-sided if I if memory serves. I don't have it in front of me. I think it was six one for Federal Ederer so I think that prolly go you have a case of you know that second set was what what really <hes> you know. It's it's not very often. We see a Wimbledon champion with a one six on their scoreline right true true enough. Certainly there's a big advantage to Jovic when you get going that long obviously Federer is ageless. He's a month shy of his thirty eighth birthday and to be playing that long the longer it goes on the better chances Jovic as a winning that thing but it went as long as it pretty well. Could you go twelve twelve and they've changed the rules around now is not going to go on forever. <hes> that that whole is ner effect where he had like three or four matches go on six seven hours Ram that final set now at twelve all then they go to a tiebreaker and so it went as long as it could basically and <hes> joke of it's being almost six years younger. That's a slight advantage. I'd say <hes> sell great match great tennis one of those ones that people are gonNA remember forever yeah the other thing with tennis Steve is you're. You're not going to sneak in here on us. Okay as a young hotshot although they start young tennis players particularly women right tons of them turned pro at fifty fifty tons of them turned pro at fifty. Well look at the Kid Goff. I think the American kid went. I think she went three rounds youngest. Kid ever get through three rounds or something like that. Yesterday's news now right that was last week story. No one's talking about it anymore but I in ten does your so you you turn pro young you made there may be the odd field on that comes along and wins early on they they rise to the to the top but there's none of these young kids who are taking over you know Federer's the the career that these guys have Jovic veteran a doll Serena Williams hall up now is of course she's starting to window different though Steve Right now than Gulf that these new young kids are coming not a left field here man coming out of college but you names coming in that are just taken away from we're speaks where's Fowler. Where's rory these days? Well I mean he won the Canadian Open last month. Oh it did okay. I forgot about that DOC. Where's he been winning tournaments? Where's where's he been forgot six for the last eighteen days? I haven't seen anything go start to give it but they're not let you in there and tennis Steve You're. They're just not these guys aren't going away these superstars antennas and it makes me think about a when you make that comparison with golf we're in a very special time obviously because <hes> we always think about Tiger Woods will he catch Jack Nicklaus for or a the number of with his eighteen majors and in tennis right now <hes> you've got three guys the top three guys are all still active and it is some question as to who will end up with the most grand slams when all of a sudden Don Jovovich now moves to sixteen grand slams. You've got Rafael Nadal Eighteen Federer with twenty so it's kind of an interesting that these three guys <hes> because we always have this discussion engulf but. It's pretty rare. Were at all all the guys at the top of the leaderboard are all active guys so sometimes you don't realize it and you're living in a very special time in a particular sport but we are living in a very special time in and tennis sure sure absolutely and and the cream the cream rises to the top there and early twenties or whenever their late teens and they're no looking back man and they're they're they look at you and going on a you're not getting in here pal. I am way better. I've been playing way longer and I'm gonNA kick your ass. `Fratelli Steve was the guy who won today. Okay Dylan `Fratelli won the P._G._A.. Today and last week it was Wolf Kid Wolf so will these guys are sneaking in there. They're getting in there. They're young they just they they. They haven't even officially turned pro steep. They claim their pro status after an earlier on in the year after the U._S.. Amateur I think a bunch <unk> skits that I'm turning pro so they get to play some sponsor exempt events that they're allowed on and if they acquire enough points then there they qualify the acquiring a Fedex points or something they they qualify to be on the tour next year which would prevent them from having to go to Q-school if they'll get your golf game back yet by the way your last time we spoke about your late chop was ninety one. I told you two games ago that I played and I cheated and I shot eight. Steve the other fuck combat. I'd like to get my hands on you might be able to give you a run. I actually got my game back a little bit. I played with a bunch of guys that I grew up with enrichment a bunch of hockey guys we get together for tournament every year just just Eh River Band and new tear the place up a bunch of beers but all of a sudden. I was just hammering the ball. I'm very excited about Gulf against surprisingly enough well. You would get you would beat me. You'd have to give me shots. I'm so and I'm going on my big golf trip. This week going gone up to Sudbury on Wednesday for my big annual Gulf and I'm going to be a mess. I'm going to be brutal. I'm going to be you know Steve. I live in river bend. You just said River Bend. That's coincidental. You live in river bend now. That's the name of my subdivision cool. Oh did you mean riverside when you said there's no riverside golf course in Ottawa River. Bend is the name the golf course that's right okay. I Digress T._v.. Zone near Richmond it's at river bend every every year and one of the guys that we hung out with back. Then big into Richmond hockey has got him Tim Bonner and he's the Greens keeper <hes> The tournaments named after his Dad John Bonner to John Boehner classic but two years ago we went out there and it was an absolute monsoon and we played any way and I'm sure Tim had an absolutely large cleanup job from all the damage we ended up doing with all the Gulf cards on very very wet track. I WanNa talk about the toddler skaggs story most sports fans would have heard about this story by now and it's the passing of angels Pitcher Tyler skaggs. He died back on candidate at age twenty seven. He was found in his hotel room. They still have no idea yet jimmy how how he died but there's no foul play suspected back to this still trying to figure things out but a couple of nights ago <hes> even though a lot of times past the angels were back home for the first time since gags died is big delay because of the all star break and because the angels were on the road so they really he did it upright honoring their full and teammates so in the clubhouse they had they basically have painted skaggs personal slogan. We're nasty up on the wall. You know the Montreal Canadians dressing room they can blinders field line to you from failing hands. We throw the Torch be yours to hold high <hes>. They've got that now in the Angel Locker Room with we're nasty. His stall is going to stay untouched for the rest of the year on the field. They've got a big mural of skaggs on the center field wall his mom Debbie throughout the first pitch delivered an absolutely perfect strike and every single angel player had the same name and number on their Jersey for the game. I Guess Major League Baseball made an exception option. They all had number forty five and the named skaggs on the back of their Jersey Naven at a forty five second moment of silence absolutely beautiful across the board but let let me play the final moment the best attribute here came in a way that no one could have expected and this is the second base rent. He falls down picks it up fires. The angels have no hit the Seattle Mariners unbelievable capable that <hes> from Fox television they go out and throw a no hitter that night. Is that crazier watchings. This might be the most unbelievable thing I've ever seen going on in baseball. Can you write a story any better on the night when <hes> they have this massive memorial for the guy it's it's so tragic and <hes> it's always so strange steve to have to when stuff like that that happens when life gets in the way of sports and yet you've you got to pick up where you left off. How do you do it? How do you not seem insensitive? <hes> you know they're not going to cancel games. <hes> the big bad world of business has to stay intact for this thing and I thought it was exceptional the way they did it I really did it's fascinating. The way baseball seems to have these almost <hes> mystical moments when it comes to this <hes> when you think back to the Miami Marlins a few years ago <hes> their superstar Pitcher Jose Fernandez died in an accident so obviously the marlins and all of Major League baseball completely stunned by the thing and in the next game they did all the same sorts of things that are not not as much but lots of the same sorts of things at the angels did for Skaggs and to start that game off Dee Gordon was your leadoff batter and Dee Gordon is a one of the best bass stealing threats in baseball but just just he must wear one hundred and thirty pounds does not hit home runs very often will what does he do to start off the very next game as the leadoff batter for the Game Bong and what a absolutely beautiful tribute that ends up being in an unexpected shocking manner for their their fallen teammate yeah yeah it was all that at the end Steve so they all wore number forty five with skaggs on their back and at the end you may mention in this as I was I was lopping for SEC or lapsing for Sec <hes> that they all lay their jerseys. They'll take them off and lay them on the pitching mound that's right they did at the at the end. I thought she's always thought was taboo to put the Jersey shore to interrupt here for a secretary Jim or a little later than we usually do so my son's Kinda running amok here and he's he's trying to figure out the name of a song you do what that song is that Michael Michael. Hey Michael what songs they sing singing a song singing a song. I've been meaning to call you. That's tragically hip. I don't track Italy. I need to call you by the hip yeah. I've been meaning to call you mean to call you. Let me hear him. Sing it come on. I've been meaning to call you. That's it. Can you thank you for me no I can't. I'm doing a radio show but I catch it from me. You search it all searching for Michael that was betting on kids are good singer to Stevie. He can sing. He definitely has good. He has good pitch for sure. I love your son. <hes> okay so thank you for that intermission. Everybody yeah okay. Where were we another day? In the life of of of of Autism Steve Yes yes it is was yesterday where he decided that we have to ceiling lights. They're quite lovely like he's mass so picture big giant fish bowl upside down with these nice little sort of candelabras inside those he decided out of the blue that after three years leading here that they could not be on the ceiling one second longer hold and I don't know how he got them off without shattering them completely but he somehow managed to do it and so I've now got to get to new ceiling lights where those used to be random out to the garage and that's it's that it's never ending tells you it's never ending. I'm laughing at the innocence I love it. I like it. I wish you could tell me why you know why he does the things he does. He just sort of says something along the lines <hes> I don't. I like it okay why I don't like it so you know what Steve He's doing shit that everyone else would love to but they're afraid to you know you go to someone. That's a fucking brutal chandelier ticket down perfect. It's perfect. I wish I could be like the guy one last thing on the Tyler skaggs story before we move along here and <hes> we we already mentioned all the wonderful bits of symmetry and tributes that the angels angels combined no hitter was the first in the State of California since July Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety one and that was the same day tyler skaggs was born. Oh come on Yup that is weird. Oh my God always buy around two okay so I have to figure out what this tile tragically hip song is. <hes> it's called in view in view you in view like V. E. W. by the tragically hip I have a song for you Steve. I want to say I love you. I love you and I need you. Stevie yeah shows taking an interesting turn. What do stevie are? We need you know even when I'm with my boo Steve I bow little fade out watch. Is that beyond say trying to figure but no it's. It's the song's called Dilemma Nelly with Kelly Rowland Oakland Steve. You're just throwing beyond out there to sound cool. That's all I legitimately thought it might have been heard. I do like some good trivia though don't mess with don't mess with my fiance Stevie. She's yours issue I would. I would see yes well you and the rest of North America talking about your like this great unknown talent that no one else had ever heard of thought about in that way. Here's orange juice Steve because I know the N._F._l.. IS ON RED LEX luther tough one gets Montreal Montreal celebrated by firing their G._M.. The next day oh no did they really read is they're about to have they bring in. Thank you Michael. They're about to bring in new ownership and I guess they're clearing the deck and <hes> they want to get some new blood in there after caiphus read in the Alawites tough couple of years but it's I the timings odd because the Alawites look fantastic in Ottawa yesterday yeah and I I can't remember the last time they were any good not that. I'm a big CFL follower. They've made the playoffs in like four years yeah right. I thought so stupid for the G._M.. Here's the deal Stevie you and I often go into the old CFL days. It was of a couple of weeks ago. We brought up the name Bill Simon's and from Toronto this we're talking seventies football. That's our deal. We always seem to get back into that's our that's our deal stevie the seventies CFL and you you hit me with well. Yeah we have a bunch of our listeners age because I get a bunch of reaction when we talk about stuff like that so anyway what impressed me was I brought up this name Bill Simon because I remember we did a commercial on TV the big square shoulder older passive massive shoulder pads and you you clip me because there was no heads up for you on this. You hit me with his Jersey number I said could you know that I just brought up this random name and sure enough. I said no you don't it just making that up but we'll go with that. Bank says we got off air. You flip me a picture of a CFL card of built Simon's with the Jersey number. Okay so what we'RE GONNA DO Steve Every Damn GonNa do for a while is we're GONNA do SORTA SEVENTIES CFL guys. Where'd you find Trivia the nineteen seventies? Is there like a website for that.

Jimmy Okay so here Steve. We're going to do this until until it's not interesting and maybe maybe this'll be in the one and only we do maybe one and done no no but I'm always impressed with your ear sort of innocuous knowledge of the CFL now. This is an American football aw presently Stephen American football coach former player in the CFL <hes> who is the current passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Arizona Cardinals. I WanNa read something to you. Steve that will impress impress you about this guy. Okay <hes> is born in Nineteen fifty three. He played for every team in the League Winnipeg. Hamilton Saskatchewan Ottawa will that many teams Steve Steve and he also played for the Kansas City Chiefs St Oh he <hes> let's see he coached this post game now Steve so he's born in fifty three you know he played in the seventies. Oh I got it. That's settled down while you have to give him any more clues. I know well. How would you know because he played if he played for the Kansas City chiefs? There's not that many guys. How would you know that I know that he was with Green Bay for a long time as their quarterbacks back's coach? I think offensive coordinator's well but I think they parted company all right go ahead. Who isn't is it? Tom Clements no damn it it. It's it's fucking freak but interesting Steve. This guy got a lottery and work practice as a lawyer in Chicago for four or five years. I never do that on the guy bit of a low reactor. We tried tried to get him on <hes> on T._S._N.. A few times for <hes> various milestone years of you know it's all it's been thirty years since they won the Grey Cup in seventy six we all remember clements to Gabriel and Ottawa for those of certain vintage and we'd try it was on the Air Yeah and of course you where you didn't see it. I'm sure no that game. I did see what with my parents. My mother was laying down in the subway underneath on the floor of the subway car until just using that well she was talking to the guy. Didn't I tell you that at at the end of the end of the game she was everyone was blasted. I told you my parents used to go the great they're great parties with drinks and everything the two three rows of seats be twenty thirty people there if they've they brought in food and box lunches and everything and everyone got annihilated Ed my dad and I were standing on the subway lead leaving exhibition and we're looking at my mother. Was There Steve She was we look in my dad's like where's your mother and I look down the aisle and the on the subway car my mother's lying lying on the floor talking to almost under for coach where cool back then she had a big fur coat and she was lying face down having a chat with homeless guy who was sleeping in his own puke underneath the seats yeah so that comes first Steve then clements to Gabriel Okay those are the two highlights yeah this guy like he's He's been coaching his whole life. Notre Dame quarterbacks coach New Orleans Saints Quarterback Coast Kansas City chiefs steelers Buffalo Buffalo Bills Green Bay packers and now Arizona Cardinals so nice thing about those American team Steve is they got about ninety two thousand coaches so you can always find a gig anyway that was that was the first installment summit of where are they now Steve Dawn. I was all pumped for a few more do want today. I'm going to tell you where they are now and you have to figure out who it is and like an nailed it.

Or Tech six one three eight six zero six zero zero eight four fast friendly service this on the hockey front. We all know the name Jordan Bennington finally finally some hard yeah this time last year I think even the biggest hockey fan would have a hard time coming up with the name Jordan Bennington well well a year later. Saint Louis Blues have resigned Bennington to a two year gig where the total of eight point eight million dollars and not bad for a guy who this time last year was twenty five year old journeyman minor leaguer with one <unk> game of N._H._l.. Experience Standing Fourth on the blues goaltending depth chart and now he's got a Stanley Cup ring. He's the single biggest reason Jim the blues were able to turn their season around. No doubt man the guy deserves every penny any you know and I like seeing that I like seeing that hell of a story on unparalleled story for further rise to to winning the holy grail here <hes> he was he was nails. He was absolute nails and I'm. I'm happy to see because sometimes that happens in the N._H._l.. Players will rise the occasion and <hes> goalies and they don't get paid the next year. We'll wait and see no lengthy. The I know we got to the Fourth Round so oh love seeing it you still own the as thirty seven games right thirty some games in the regular season and then however many playoff games he needed to help them win a Stanley Cup that is still a pretty short resume so it's not like this is without risk but two years eight point eight million. That's not so bad I mean there's a lot of thank you money in there. I think that even if things go sideways for this guy that <hes> there there's some thanking going on there for helping them win a Stanley Cup and <hes> like I said in an earlier earlier episode I really feel like N._H._l.. Teams should take notice of what happened to the blues when they finally solidified their goal tending to me. A new goalie can be a bigger spark than the coaching change range but everybody always wants to go to the coaching change hard to be fired. Make a coaching change. He's to blame guys will be <hes> you know get a spark from a new voice. I think you get away bigger spark from getting a new goalie in there because poor or inconsistent goaltending is the biggest mental drain on a team that there is in my opinion no doubt about it Steve. Could this kid have gone anywhere he wanted to after this year. No he's still in our F._A.. Yeah so the thing I listen to the kid in interviews postgame stuff. He was almost overconfident. Remember there were a couple of commentaries artem after going this kid's this kid's got no lack of eagle here on this kit and I saw no. He doesn't lack for confidence confidence so it wouldn't surprise me if this kid probably negotiated some of his own salary with his agent. You know saying you know what get the best you can otherwise. I'm you know I <hes> I would just get the sense that this kid wouldn't lie down for anything you know and that he might go flying in there without me. You got nothing <hes> big big Dole. It's very good though you can look at it and say he's The Stanley Cup winning goalie. Oh my God you get the Stanley Cup winning goal at an average annual value of four point four million a year that that's that's a pittance but then when you consider the lack of experiences guys had beyond what happened I mean thirty some games that was his entire resume as he entered the playoffs where he'd basically go wire to wire and win a Stanley Cup. That's <hes> that's a different deal altogether but <hes> you know I agree the he comes off a little cocky surprisingly so for a guy I who hasn't completed you know basically a full year of N._H._l.. Hockey just yet but boy his hometown all over it. They've already <hes> he had his day with the Stanley Cup already right. I thought was like Oh my God. This guy skinny like is not much to this guy at all like he's Ryan. And Miller skillet skinny so as Dave the Stanley Cup included a <hes> an addition to the town sign. I think it's Richmond Hill. I WanNa say on addition to the town sign that says home of Jordan Bennington Stanley Cup champion with a little Stanley Cup icon. I noticed that too like sort of refreshing a little bit. You know that kid comes in you you can't you can't get lucky all the time Steve this kid you know maybe one of few maybe got lucky a little bit but you don't get lucky not all the way to the Stanley Cup final win tons of skill so good for him. Another signing was Ryan single the former Ottawa senators signing on with the Carolina hurricanes the bunch of Jerks and he agreed on a two year deal where the total of six point seven five million with the canes and good for him and everything you'll recall though that prior to be being traded by the sense there were reports that the sends it offered single who is going to be a U._S._A.. A five year deal worth five million per year does ingle apparently turned it down and was traded shortly after I don't know that to be true but those were very common reports that still to this point are swirling around out are there. Can you imagine that sort of head space. Que Get a two year deal worth a total of six point seven five million and I could have signed a five-year deal where the total of twenty five million dollars so that's true I could not fire my agent hard enough credit to the team Steve Credit to the team where they offer them the five it's big Dole and the they turned the offer down and they go fine. We're not we're going to get radio. We're GONNA train. We're not coming up. That's our Max that their ceiling so I like that I like I like seeing that in in the in the world of the other side of the world away from this Bennington guy where where guys think they're worth worth more money than they think meanwhile. There's a story about Kevin La Bank. This is a winger a place for the San Jose Sharks. He had fifty six points this past season and do you know what he signed for <hes>. I think it's about ten days ago now. That's decided that's good points fifty-six absolutely well put it in perspective. There's not a single member of the active Ottawa senators roster at fifty six points. This guy signed a one ear deal worth one million dollars and everybody is going W.. T. F. on that one like one years one year for fifty six points with that. Maybe that agent should be fired art. Whoever that was my God yeah completely anyway? It's all good. I don't mind seeing that once in a while. Just let's just keep everyone grounded here. Let's keep everyone on the beam. You know do turns down five and go tries to go make six or maybe you know in the term in that already at five years didn't he the yeah yes five years twenty five million and maybe I mean maybe part of it was maybe that spoke to just how dissatisfied he was with with the idea of remaining in Ottawa senator because he he'd already seen Air Carlson and Mike Hoffman go. I think the Mike The mattachine one went down before him and I don't know about the mark stone was around the same time but he new stone was on the way out so I guess he you know he was seen gay last one turn out the lights yeah. I'm not sticking around here. I don't know Steve If you look at it this way if you could in the crystal ball and say there's there's twenty any other teams here. They're going to give you three point seven five for a couple of years. I know you want to Ottawa but but they're prepared to give you five Mil of over Twenty Five Years Twenty five million dollar deal yeah. I'm going back Steve. I'm okay with auto. I'm okay with Ottawa care rb computing web polar close out today <hes> we asked the question on twitter at T._S._N.. Steve as we look back at last season for the Ottawa senators. Those were the things I wanted to do for the web poll that we just look back at some key issues or key moments in the course of their season <hes> what what did people think of the very surprising almost shocking fight between lean body Ryan and Kyle tourists a two of the least likely fighters that one can imagine and Bobby Ryan by the way pretty much cleaned Kyle Taurus's clock and so we invited people people <hes> to put their opinion on what would you think of it and was it in the heat of the moment or might there have been some sort of underlying reason for big wreck rights when two of the softest players collide inevitably the battle to not be the softest player ensues with intense slapping not sure anything was really decided though Silva go Dan I think that was still my biggest w t f moment all season Oedema been a fly on the wall to know the back story of that one I'll go with unpaid pizza bill because tourists dined and dashed on Ryan because we'll never know the truth unless one writes a book Jason Portius Rights. I think bobby had some payback in mind. He was unloading something.

Nice to be with Steve One doing about a podcast. So that's that's a Nelson Mandela Steve slightly. Okay Okay Bang on right Nelson I know and but but Steven can can morph into Morgan Freeman right. Never notice that right they sound. They sound alike. Morgan Freeman not bad. I stayed right there. No no again goes have. You can't give away. The guy's name as your impression is like your Christopher Walken. Christopher walken Steve I would like to thank everyone for so that Sorta Nelson Mandela. But like I say Steve can go to Morgan Freeman. You know. I didn't dig much. Andy defraying the first time. I met him no not good very good. You got a new era right. You got the Cherry told you to get did night game changer. Isn't it though. Well I'm spending eight like I got a little media company going on get about eight hours of my life in front of a computer these days as opposed to you know the four hours I did doing radio and stuff but it'd get up. Go get a coffee and all that stuff but non like stationary for a very long time. And I've been working away on this nineteen twenties bankers chair which looks really cool and everything but oh oh my God. They were thinking about economics in the twenties. Let's say that and this thing I got today that you recommended Fan frigging tastic. Yeah Yeah we as you get a little plug for staples. It's under a couple of hundred bucks to isn't it. I sat in one the other day at a place I was at and it's like the tight Mesh. It looks like it looks like a pilot man could sit in this thing right to fly a plane. It's unreal. You know it's funny. It's funny Steve. How you know how where people spend their money? And there's all sorts of examples of how people piss cash away on stuff right and then complain about Ah Shit while they're in the sun in lying away in Florida but complain about the state of Nation. It's like if you're going to spend money on anything. Steve Okay up your car you gotta you gotta spend some dough on your car. It doesn't have to be the the fifty grand plus okay. We don't you know you got you. Got The great deals era. Of course Jim Kate. Nice Jimmy Nice segue there okay. So you got that so you got to spend some good in your car. The other one is your bed Steve. Okay we're in there every night so buck up one third of your life. Yeah get the the matches going. Okay get a good one all right do that. And and the other one is a chair. You sit in the chair. You gotta you gotta spend. The Dole. Forgot shoes two shoes spent some. I'm a big guy. Stevie big shoe guy I got the same paradox Martins and I wear them all the time I wear them for about two years until they finally gave out and I just get a new pair. That's all I wear one pair of Brown doc. Martens two years Paul. I've had some that. I bought across the street from the radio station in in Ottawa. Those those I've had those ten years man Talk Martin's unreal unreal. Those are the big ones I say. The must invest properly in because so much time on. It's easy at eight even fire. Good pair of skates if you're a hockey nerd like me. Don't scrimp on your skates if you listen to you record it yet. Don't scrimp on the skates often when we do the sustainable which you're doing a great job by the way but I always get some questions out there and and some are really good and I always get the same thing every week is. What's what's the best prank? Think that has been around shit. That's off the ice. That always someone saying what's the what's the best move to hurt a guy you know and and and get away with it okay. The the move and and usually the short you take shorthand on sticking your cross-check. I'm right above the wrist. Okay before the where. That open part is above the glove right. That that's a good move but the one I'd never heard of is so guys tied their skates really tight. You know when they play hockey and so when you're at the face off you can there cinched down Stevie okay like a vice. Got This stuff like Paul. coffey were size five and a half have skates and his and his shoe size seven. You know like he wore these super tight skates and Russell saying what you do is when you're in the face off with the guy a UH lining up for a face off she's just take the heels stick and just whack him on the top of the foot any sand. It's Qripoli Anyway you'd have to really I. It would be hard to get the kind of leverage you need to really bring that stick down hard without somebody seeing it. Like one of the linesmen or one of the rap shot ever over like I find one anytime that you're dealing with any upward motion that little sorta spear and that the tip of the blade you know so many guys love that in front of the net right goalie defenseman. Just get that little tip of the blade around the golden area and even if they didn't get you underneath a jock so they got a bit of the old taint ain't area. Oh stevie Oh yeah. They'll they might get a little piece of the inside of the leg and stuff and man it would almost cut the skin. Well what are they GONNA come up Steve with a taint guard. I come on get your shit together. If someone's GonNa come up with a strap. Okay attached to the JOCKSTRAP for tank Chin Guard Guard. You know you gotTa Elbow Guards you know. I WANNA take guard one of these days. I wish we still had our trademark. Sound effect that we'd always have and we'd come up with a great idea. We wanted to trade market right away. Ding Dong Ding Dong. Yeah could you imagine and having attained guard and and you're on the ice and a guy knows he goes you know what he says. Here's what you do okay. Heard this on the Steve. Warren Permanent PODCAST. Is You just take the tip blade. You can't fired up the leg okay. Because they'll see that just give them a little left and right in between the balls and the button right taint so you go. Yeah good idea and you go to do it to the Guy Right. And he's got the taint guard on Okay and you give you give him the hammer and you go. Oh my God. That was too much and the guy's laughing at you that it didn't hurt. What what the Hell I just I just knife do you okay? I just just split you like you're like you're gonNA need a PR. DEMY Steve. Tocchet like cake and you're standing there laughing at me. That didn't work. I got the state guard on. Yeah here we go. You got the last laugh because you had the tank guard the guard on. We'd ask ordinal about this because you no there's always every piece of equipment is endorsed by some NHL Player. She had come to him and said Rusty. We need you to endorse this great new product. We have millions of dollars. Yeah absolutely the colonel. Colonel Tinker keep a list. TV OF IDEAS IDEAS member yesterday. The APP the APP when the when the Games on that. It's like the the alert warning that they've been sending around the World K.. Mark that down put the other one. They're the Tankard do do that. Here's the other thing. Stevie Okay Ricky Gervais his opening monologue of the Golden Globes did. Did you watch it. I've got it PBR. I haven't seen it yet. My Wife said it was unbelievable. How mean he was to people? Gillerman killer killer killer stuff he he says I forget. His opening line was final year. This is my fifth year of doing it and it's my final year and he goes so so I don't care what happens tonight. So you're just a boat. Oh my God dude the shit you said the past they said so I don't care it's my fifth and final earlier he goes. I'm lying I didn't care any year that I've done it as it wasn't exactly reserved in previous years. Well you just know some of the stuff that this guy is going to deal with right and you're waiting for it. He's funny. It's absolutely hilarious talking about the awards and and how long they take and and rippin on Scorsese and a few other guys sorta sort of your just waiting for this thing to burst. It's like okay. Okay that's not bad okay. You're just sitting sitting there hiding your head turning sideways fuck. It's coming and then and then whammo whammo into Ed Stein and some other stuff. It's just like Oh my God what I loved and I only heard the second hand through my wife that he kind of shut everybody down right right at the beginning when it came time to the winners making their speeches just sort of a shot across all before it started. He didn't want anybody to get political and stuff because nobody cares about any of that stuff. Oh my God is the best thing ever 'cause. That's that's the last thing anybody's tuning in for. It's not that I. I'm not one of those guys that begrudge any actor after a famous person having political stances. I'm just thinking more time in place. The entire continent is tuning in because they want a light evening of entertainment. They WANNA see some of their stars and you know they don't WanNa get in and nobody's tuning into see and hear about people's politics and so I was glad to hear that your race put the hammer down on that or really. He was great he was great went on for about sixty seconds about and in the end. Saying just come up here. Thank your producer. Thank your God and get the fuck off. Although some dead the chick who gave Ellen Degeneres won this Carol Burnett award she was pretty cool she was lgbt Q.. Oh girl and talked about Allen Open up the doors. It was pretty good. That was Kate McKinnon from SNL right. Yes I believe so and the other thing he did which was like. I don't want to get it but it doesn't matter that I tell you this is he said you know the networks the networks really are put no shitty stuff these days as you know and he's on a network TV program you know it's just like all this crap you know because of course barely Scorsese said a lot of these movies have have no thrift to them anymore because it's their superheroes right and it's just a bunch of people in tights and doing this stuff and and Scorsese of course makes such great movies. Sure and he said none of the Shit's none. That shit's any good. Eddie more the networks he goes. You know how we can just end. This thing is congratulations Netflix. They whenever and walk off watching. Hey it's great it's about eight minutes The one I saw anyway online today. He's killer. He's absolutely killer. Oh Yeah and the other brings up an interesting conversation to about you know the shift in paradigm that must be going on in network. TV over the last decade decade here is net flicks. Just absolute takes everything over right right all these executives who've been doing things Certain way for many many years and then all all of a sudden now is putting out. Basically the equivalent of Hollywood blockbusters we after week after week not to mention how great their series are. It's is just totally reimagined the whole TV experience and it seems like The networks is starting to get on board with reinvestment. And and not just putting a you know ole another garbage Sitcom on and Canned laughter and just awful awful stuff one after the other. It seems like They're starting to finally get it because they're they're going to be dinosaurs. They're going to be dead before long. If they don't start reinvesting yeah and the reason there's so much stuff on net flicks is is because there's ironically finish this thought is because there's so much bad stuff out there and net flicks. I believe you've in fact I'm almost sure I know this net flicks gobbled up everything. They gobbled up everything and they didn't. They didn't have a bias towards awards. One one subject matter or another is they started buying shows and all kinds of them and with the good came the bad and but and I think they just put everything out there you know they put it all out there and and you I mean you could. You could drive yourself bananas sitting down going okay. I'm going to start start a new series here. What should I watch? And if you're not particular you know from documentaries to crime dramas to do dramas to sports sports stuff. It's just it's unreal. It's unreal what they have there. Nobody isn't attention span anymore too. That's the other advantage that net flicks has the foresight to make really quality programming. That was one thing. But it's always available. The on-demand concept is how the world works now. Like you both have couric's and I'm sure you're like me is like the thing takes about. I don't know forty five to sixty seconds and make a cup of coffee and the second mark. I'm like come on hurry up. We're all just. We need things yesterday and Network TV. Like I'm GonNa wait for the six o'clock news really. I don't know I don't think I'm going to do that. I just got to flip it on on my computer. Whatever or my show the only keeping network? TV alive live television. Like you know. I'm going to tune in at eight o'clock for something it's sports otherwise they got no shot. Yeah you know what else is interesting correct. You don't know what else is totally interesting as I've flipped through facebook and videos all the time you know youtube stuff and now it's gotten gotten to the point where you know I look at how long it is. Okay if something is eight minutes okay not a chance a role right through right if something's three and a half minutes. Maybe maybe I'LL WATCH IT Steve. Okay but my thing is okay. This is forty seconds. It's a minute twenty. It's less less than two minutes. Then I'm in and I think that's an indication of what just what you talked about. I wanted now wanted funny and I wanted you know immediate okay. And I'm on a short and concise to the point and it's not because they got a bunch of Shit to do that that's the way it is everything now for sure and and and it brings up an interesting discussion because I always like to take everybody inside Who are fans of this podcast and and we have? This is really nice like Audience audience of really reliably listening. Type folks. it's great and we have some great patriotic members if you WANNA get on On a membership. It's It's Steve W PROJECT DOT com. You can join membership there but when I say take inside of me. I'm wondering what do you think what is what should the length of a daily podcast be some days as unlike do people appreciate longer because we've gone over an hour with this show before but we've also had shows a short as twenty nine minutes like where do you fall on that. Well you know some of the greatest time ever had in radio You know sort of out of left field or whatever what we thought would be just a you know a one off or something. We had to cover because it was in the news. Some of the best stuff became key. Sort of came out of nowhere and this lively discussion was created out of the the issue. Whatever it was us and you end up going again this man you know because you know in radio one of the we're we're going to go another segment with this but in radio? They're they're they're not big on that that right. I remember when I sat down and radio. How does this all work and and may who you know who's totally educated about it? Of course it's it's his life blood Radio Radio and he said look at the audiences coming in every eight to ten minutes right in more particularly morning radio mid day a little less but they get in their car. They're driving ten minutes to work or they're in front of the radio whether eating their breakfast in the morning then changes and and some are in eight summer in at nine summer in at seven picture. How soap you gotTa Bang this shit out you know? And you've got to repeat it right constantly. resetting for the New People that are coming in. Yeah and and even you no when I said I went in one day and when when I was new and I said really the time the time in the weather mark we have to do this every ten admits and fog patches. Like can't people just see that anyway. Okay with he said it's the number one and two and three things that the people want is the time and the weather right. Oh so but the best shows were when you you say should it be an hour or half hour depends on what the topic is you know depends on where it goes because you get you get a feeling right if you're onto something Just just as the opposite occurs. Let's get out of this. It's going nowhere you know And I'm game to talk more about taint guards because I thought that was you got to bring that up. You know you gotta bring it up the other thing. Stevie is of course the social media. Here's the thing. I've got a bit of bit of thing today again. I got an a slight the thing on twitter right. I you know a couple months ago gotten something I regretted it was. I hate trolled all that Shit. I just saw that. Yeah that was so today. I'm flipping through through my twitter. I looked to see what we can talk about. And I read this horrendous tweet from a woman who starts off saying here. Let me tell you about my son. He he missed my husband's birthday. And then this year he promised he would make it for Christmas and it just dropped my husband a text on Christmas on boxing day. Okay and so thanks a lot son. You are a see see blank blank. t what the mother said. Yeah right right so I'm looking at this thing I'm going Oh my God you know and whip post right away. I don't. I don't often respond to sort of sensitive shit you know but I'm going. This is crazy you know when I and I put up there maybe maybe the family issues should be kept private. That's all I said. I didn't call her mother and say anything like that. Steve I said I don't like the people fighting their battles on facebook with family stuff. I just it's just unfair. It's unfair to everyone involved and and it tells me a lot about you if you want to take this thing and put it and you got three thousand followers or five hundred or whatever and call your son that maybe he is. Maybe isn't so you just never know what's going on inside people's Stephen this so I said you maybe shouldn't do that. You know I'm just wondering if family issues should be kept private. Okay Stephen Lang okay. The the most responses I've I've had instantly and everyone every one of those responses with with the exception of one was. Why don't you mind your effing business you you piece of Shit? PR's was the best one that was called Stevie Pinson and you're GonNa call me that North You you've seen ours and shut your mouth and you know why don't don't you. Just go away. And Stop with your whatever's on your high horse who made you chief Jim and all this shit right and aw I said I responded to a couple of people saying hey it was just my opinion and dot apparently not as strong as your opinion right right and there were a couple of bands back and forth. I didn't want to get right into it right and in the end someone said why don't you mind Your Business and my response to that. Steve is first of all. You can't tell people on twitter to not have an opinion. That's all twitter is. That's all social media's right Steve Inviting it when you put something out like that exactly. Steve and I said for someone to tell me who put that postal forget the content of the Post. Okay but who put a post stop you you respond to it one way or the other and they come back and go. Oh Yeah Mind Your Business if people want to mind your business then. Don't put your business up on twitter. A million percent. Yeah I totally agree And they'll do and once you've lost in what you've thrown that word out in relation nation to a human being that you gave birth to. You're going to throw that word out about that. Even if everything has gone really really badly from a social social perspective and your relationship with the child or adult whatever he is I don't know like that's just completely unacceptable to me and I have no patience and and no sympathy for anybody like that right. I gotTA give a shout. I began to think God I read this wrong like not one was. I agreed you write. It was pretty soft thing I said you know maybe keep your shit to yourself but I said it nicely keep your and there was only one guy thinks from auto by town Blaine. WHO said so? This lady calls her son that word. And now gyms the bad guy and I said thank God Blaine. They thought it was. You know what's what's this. All this is made up up of. I just don't know how again the content that thing that people are reacting to. You have out her mom you you tell them. It's like one of these things where it's like you know I if he's randomly go into somebody's house and start giving them advice on. You know what you're saying that that's one thing where you could say. Yes you know. Stay out of a gym. Mind Your Own Business Jim but right by very nature of that that opening salvo that that the woman women had she's effectively saying what do you guys think of this thing that's happening in my life right now. Maybe you WANNA keep that to yourself a little right. You know or or this thing where people we'll tell you to shut up and keep your you know you don't know what you're talking about and all the shit rates just ludicrous. It's ludicrous that these people are tap tapping that shit out not realizing they're they're typing on an opinion though. The reality is the way I handle those. I've got a little more probably experience with the with twitter and social media and stuff when I see something like that. It's like the I react the same way I do when I walk past a junkyard dog barking at the fence. I don't stop depended headed. I don't stop to engage with it and keep on truckin and I should but anyway I didn't get into it as much as I did. The one time when the guy the the chick picked on Wayne and I went bananas. The right we gotta we gotta get to Our good sponsors here and get into things here. We've got a couple of things we're going to talk about in the sports sphere wrought by all Insurance Ontario.

The dynamic duo the New England patriots head coach. Bill Bill Belichick and Star quarterback. Tom Brady who many believe is the best of all time. What is next for these? Two is at another year together is it a break-up Yep is it retirement by one or both so we We find that out on twitter at. TSN Steve as where that pole lives. I wonder James. What do you think's GonNa Happen? You know I've been thinking about it right. We talked about it a little bit earlier in the week In the shows that no I really I really. It's sort of the most shattering news. Whatever way it goes to Brady's are going to stay with New England? He's going to retire or he's going to go somewhere else. The biggest surprise would be if he goes to another team. I would think I can't speak for everyone but that would be a shocker. Tom Tom Brady can't go to another team. Steve can't he can't do it it would it would sort of to me. It was sort of spit in the face of loyalty to a a team. You know but it's not an uncommon thing got admit though for a guy like that you know you see it again and again. We're guys for their whole career in a certain place. It's a hall of fame career but they just Kinda on hang on at the end there Brett Farve I think of Joe Montana You know the list is a big big list of guys who have these terrific careers and then they to play one or two more years at the end somewhere else peyton manning for example it's It's a very rare thing where guys go wire-to-wire I and I never did like you know. I never did like players having I like when they have no trades. I do but but I don't even know if that's worth the paper it's written on anymore. They can have a no trade until until they asked for. I don't know if no trades exist in the NFL. Imagine I I don't know if they do or not but I never liked I never it always left a really. These guys forked out the Dole. Yes maybe would have got it somewhere else but they stepped up they gave you the most they signed you too long term. They made the poster poster boy for the team A lot of stuff has to align for would would have brady been able to do this with just him and Bella Chuck with a bunch of different pieces. You know in the puzzle if it was in a different city. What do I know? There's a bunch of different stuff but I just can't see this guy saying you know. What a fantastic deal this was? What a what a great life so much to everything particularly to the sport of football to Bill Bell Chuck and and then turn around and go? Okay I'M GONNA go play for the chargers. I just don't think it'll happen. I don't think he can. He can do whatever he wants. I guess but I think would chime in. I'm going to. I'm going to say that I would the thing that's most likely is the bill. belichick stays on as the New England Patriots head coach. I think that guy is a lifer and if you ever read that very funny article that I think was actually. It was either an interview or actually written by Julian Edelman fairly early on in his career career when he was at the at the Patriots Locker. Room like well after hours. And he bumped into Bill Belichick and he was. I guess at some point you know working out out looking at Game Film on the TV while he's on the treadmill or something like that and element had to do. Some workouts are snow. Get some therapy or something like that and ended up staying After everybody else had left and at the end of the night you know some of the lights are going out. And there's bill belichick still in the building and Eshelman walks in and there is is a bill belichick completely naked in the hot. You're not supposed to take a hot tub fully naked. You're supposed to have a little something something on. He's in in their fully naked and he got a full the full monty. I guess from Bill Belichick but the point being is that Bill Belichick you know. Is there all the time time preparing preparing preparing preparing for what. It's preparing for what I thought. Oh Oh my God. Is this something on toward about bill. Bell Chuck Oh so he's not going anywhere as my point whereas I think Tom Brady of a feeling that he might might see if there are greener pastures out there. He's a free agent for a reason and I don't think he went into that process. They can I'm going to You know slip out of this contract to just re-signed with the club anyway. I just thought to that sort of indicated to me that maybe he was interested in another team the way too much downside for me way too much downside you know if this guy goes to another team I just don't think he can. I think he wraps it up there with doing with or stays in place again with New England but I would like to see this guy hanging up Whenever he chooses to and and I believe that would just be an awesome awesome thing for that guy who's the one of the greatest athletes of all time to turn turnaround Zambrano? The team just makes no sense to me at all right. So couple of Bits of feedback on twitter. Caleb Smith writes I say they break up who will get the kids though Eshelman Big Rick Rights. I hate the Patriots. Such an easy decision break up and I'd love to see them. Try and wind Bhai going elsewhere. Maybe he should go to Cleveland and Brady should head over to the raiders or retire and good so thanks for the feedback on the future of the Patriots dynamic duo. Yeah the Hoodie.

You know I don't even listen. Steve I know okay okay. So did you see Connor mcdavid goal against the leaves tonight. That was ridiculous isn't it Totally totally I'm laughing at your off. Air Comments that you. You didn't think my impressions were very good. I just thought you know and connery David Right. I mean he was. He was highly touted draft. Pick and all that stuff and I remember saying. I don't know the Gretz in these guys gone. Yeah but everyone's gets to all of them said no no. No this guy's the real deal right. He's real deal and and for sure he is. There's no doubt about it so he he's been flat the last couple of weeks a little bit. You know flat for him. And so there's been big pressure on this guy so he goes into goes into the garden. The air candidates sent a garden really. You can't Chekhov Toronto the garden. I that's Boston and then B. and B. There's no leap maple leaf gardens anymore. Okay whatever so. He goes into the form and All right anyway what. Its cord of one of those things that it's just like okay. You gotta see it you know you gotta see it wicked. move the wicked wicked deal. He's hanging around looking at center. Ice Like you say waiting for guys to catch up and then just ZIP ZIP. You made a good point eight that I've never see I've seen fast guys right and and I've always said people watch. How fast is in close? Like you know how we can move around guys and stuff like that. Ah but you make the better point of how fast is carrying the PUCK. I believe that no one in the history of hockey has carried the puck with the speed the connor mcdavid has a and. I don't care who you're talking about whether it's Gretzky or Mario whether it's Sidney crosby. Whatever whatever generation whatever era uh no one has carried the puck with the speed that Connor mcdavid Ken and and just to change direction the way he did it was a real cat and mouse thing? 'cause Connor Connor mcdavid by his body. Language was yelling at Morgan Riley. I'm not coming an upcoming. I'm just hanging back here. I'm just looking for a guy to pass and then here I go. Yeah Oh he just turned the jets on and basically Riley bought it hook line and sinker so the move has everything right. It's got the the great magician. Play of the distraction. Okay all right. We're going to distract you. Hear things so the guy sort of on his heels a little bit now now. I'm gonNA come skate now. You so that screws you up okay. So we changed that and now fake fake fake you out of your your taint guard okay. You'll never be able to make it around this thing. And then and then the move on the goalie in close you know for the through the goal itself itself boy he put it in. There was no goalie there at all and Freddie Anderson would probably rather not have been there at all in fact his Freddie Anderson get chasing the game. He's spiking his Goalie Mask Sheldon Keefe had to come over and have a word with to Kinda calm him down but Yeah when Connor mcdavid is on and going it's It's pretty special. That's for sure. Well they need to get into gear men the authors write their on their on the cusp here of. I don't know they've only won. Twenty two or three games a a lost seventeen or something like that five overtime five or six so we need to. We need some movement here. Boys okay little separation. Now let's go. So yeah the Nashville predators need something to in the Western standings. It's been shocking to see them out of the playoff most of the year as they are right now and finally they've given up waiting on the team to turn around. They fired their head coach today in Peter Lavi elect and duchess strikes me as hysterical. The guy's been there five years made the playoffs every year. They're not that far to the playoffs. Yeah they've had a very tough first half but It's hard to get my head around Laviola. The alleged suddenly being The problem it can't happen though. There's no doubt that sometimes no matter. How good a coach you are? You just become a movie that the guys have seen before and they stop responding if you were a coach in the league and this happens tonight that you you flip flip your phone open and loved the fire to like. Oh my God fuck that guys get fired I got no you know. It's like the shoe drops. You wonder if other owners are gone. Yeah exactly okay. Let's do it. You wonder if they'll be other guys that there's a domino effect on. I teach their own right each team. But Yeah I have we been talking about this the last few few days about I forget it with you or with rusty or something but we talked about You Know Bill Belichick. Right has been coaching forever on the same team and I just always thought that there would be that if once you got into a league at the professional level at the highest level that as a coach that you would sort of be solid you know right. You're going to be okay here right. And and and there couldn't be anything further from the truth. Ah just to be a coach man. It's just like Oh my God what do I have to do right well. You could do everything you want. But you're never allowed a flat spot. No question you take us to the final you. Can you do do whatever but you know Sinar right. You're you're you're what have you done for me. Lately is the thing in sports. I think he'll he'll resurface somewhere and it. It looks like a very quick decision to because they aren't really sure who's going to replace him at the stage into the game to me determined. That's all they're saying at this stage usually they you know they have a guy right away they go here is going to be. The interim Galardo is GonNa step in here. Yeah where exactly really Galardo will be behind the bench for the Nashville Predators next hockey game when we come back on the show. We're going to wrap things up with some football talk and talk about pass interference. We're GONNA talk about the Dallas cowboys new head coach.

The Dallas Cowboys of hard Mike McCarthy Former Green Bay may head coach to take over at the helm there That after Jason Garrett was left to kind of twist in the wind for most of last week Dallas Dallas of course was eliminated effectively by losing the Philadelphia Eagles. A couple of weeks ago and all the eagles had to do was control their own destiny in the giants nights in the last weekend. I did it so Dallas out and so Jason Garrett was just wonder okay my job here. The whole week went by. Everybody went through their Black Mondays. Everybody made their coaching changes ages. And then Jerry Jones decides to announce the Jason Garrett is fired while the Philadelphia Eagles are playing their playoff game. I thought the timing of that struck me as maybe an attempted being petty. Try and take away a little from what the Eagles are trying to do is they. Took on the Seattle seahawks and lost by either way in wild card weekend but found that awed everybody knew Jason Garrett was GonNa get it. Why would Jerry Jones wait until the Philadelphia? Eagles are playing their playoff game to make the announcement. Yeah what is Jerry Jones. Do anything he does he. He certainly doesn't go by the book that Guy. It was kind of weird I was watching a bit of that following it on social media and a couple of the things I saw you. I mean what can you believe what you read but it sounded like Garrett was saying. Please don't fire me like like. Sometimes you'll see these guys. I got nothing to do about it. The business of sports and I'll be okay on land on my feet somewhere but it was like coup- couple of the pieces I saw were Garrett Garrett does not want to be fired here does not want to leave this team but Matz great job for sure and I don't know why Jerry Jones would need to have three meetings with them last week as well like what are you. What are you accomplishing? Okay as meeting three now. What are we talking about like all season long? We've been talking about whether whether or not this guy is going to be back. And maybe he's getting to the stage. We just forgot what was in the last meeting did. I'm a meeting with you. Losing it right with the we meet really are sure. Let's do another one. I can't remember. Yeah I'm just or the first two you don't say anything is going to open my mouth. It's going to get turfed anyway okay. Let's talk a little bit about to wrap up today. The Canadian not Canadians but the NHL I would include team Canada The NHL returning to the Olympics Olympics. It's it's certainly something Rene Fasel was talking about the world junior hockey championships in an interview with Gord Miller And would really like to have an answer from Gary Bettman by August and this is one of those stories where I i. Fully understand. Both sides of the equation I represent one of the sides of the equation equation a Canadian hockey fan who really wants the NHL to be at the Olympics because having seen what happened in two thousand eighteen and how little interest I had had in my whatever that was it wasn't amateurs from Europe plan. I have no interest in that again to be honest. It's like now it's the Olympics has become come the Spengler Cup which I also don't care about very much and so as a fan I want to see it happen however I also have a full understanding as to why the NHL Gel would be worried about it not really seeing any spike in their business from it putting their players at risk shutting down their league affecting their bottom line. I I understand that side of it as well. Where where do you fall on this? Yeah I just don't think it's Oh the Olympics faster higher stronger deal. It's supposed to be the best in the world and you know I think I think money's crowding the issue for sure but I think it should be. I think you gotta play. I think you've got to play if you're going to be in my Olympic Games. Then then we want to have a Sean your best and and you know. I don't think there would be a player that would turn it down I I I don't think no no the players are all over it. Yeah the players are all over it The last time we saw this those Steve is I got a bit of a story on this because I went to Scotland a few years ago to play golf in an incredible experience that we stayed on the old course. We stayed on the whole of the The the eighteenth hole at the old course at Saint Andrews. We stayed in a hotel owned by the irony. The royal and ancient. You're getting an erection. Just talking about this right now I I really am. You know we played but the captain of the irony is the guy in golf okay. Let's see if you get this job. It's really like like being appointed Governor General. Okay and IT'S A it's a real job and I go down to have breakfast. We stayed in this little bread and breakfast. Like I say owned by the Rene and I'm looking can over the eighteenth I just can't believe I'm there you know and it's a little four table little dining room in this little hotel room and and there's a guy died sitting across from me who's who's dressed up like he's going to lay a wreath you know he's got the red jacket on and the kilt and all this stuff and you know me I'm I'm like hey I'm Joe I'm Jimmy Jerome. And what's your name. I forget who it was. I should remember. And that's cool. What what's going on you know? And and he throws it out there and I. I didn't think I heard it right but I did. I'm I'm the new captain of the IRA. And I said you're you're that guy you know. And he's like yeah. Oh my God this trip just keeps getting better and better at Biscuit Steve and with with the captain of the ouray anyway. He was talking about the Olympics. You know and I I said you've gotta be excited because the Olympics were in Brazil and it was the first time golf was going to be an Olympic sport right and I said that must but a bunch of guys pulled out Steve Because of What was it? Some sort of virus. The -squitoes virus or so yeah Zeke of seek of virus. Something like that and a bunch of people opted out of going to the Olympics because they feared for their health and that was the issue with that Olympics. Because I know Dustin Johnson didn't go I don't I don't know if roy or not but there we're a few main guys and I said you must be so excited that you've got golf in the Olympics. Any went while I was. You know we've been working working on this thing for years and years trying to get golf into the Olympics and we finally did and he said I could if I ever run into any of those guys I'm GonNa Strangle Him. Tom was saying tongue in cheek. I could murder these guys. Because we've we've been bending over backwards and we finally got it and then a bunch of players in the top ten didn't show up so you could see it it kind of answers and I agree with this guy that if we're going to do this it's got to be the best in the world. Is what his answer was. It totally took the sting off it. It took the glow off is beautiful deal. That Gulf is going to be in there. You're asking whether you should have any L. players at the Olympics. This guy's point is you have to have. PJ players there you got to have the best. You can't Holden Olympics and go. Oh Okay for whatever reason Steve Okay. It's not going to be the same. In this case it was out of everyone's control. It was something no one can thought of but but there are cases where. PJ players might say. Hey I need the time off man you know I got majors to play for and stuff like that. He was just making the point that again. You know we gotta have the best guys there. There and I agree with that. I agree with that. You can't have an Olympics unless you have the best players there it just. It just doesn't make sense. It's not the Olympics. You know it's a it's an exhibition. It's interesting the time. Line that fossil puts down to you. Know he'd like to know by August and it should also be noted that fossil is retiring a month after that he's retiring in September Gord Miller asked him about in what was his proudest moment as the president of the International National Ice Hockey Federation he said it was bringing the NHL to the Olympics. That was his proudest thing. And this and you think of all the various levels of International L. Hockey and although tournaments that are going on for both genders and that was I think that he was most proud of well he obviously wants to go out with a bang and try and get the NHL back where they belong to. All this guy wants is a is a commitment and and Gary is not going to be pushed around right. But I think Gary has to step back and go you know what we've got to give these guys an answer and we got to give him an answer. Quick and I think it should happen long before August. I think the bottom line is that You know he he he probably would like to accommodate but Rest assured I think because the players do so badly want to play the Olympics either the NHL NHL led by. Gary Bettman will try and make this a C. B. A. issue. You know okay well you can go to the Olympics. Fine fine fine but We're GONNA need. He did he do this. It's all about the money it's all about the DOA again it's it's either going to be a CPA issue or the NHL sitting back going in a what you know. Certainly it helps sell the sport of hockey worldwide. That's certainly important from a financial standpoint. it's going to be a sea issue or it's going to be a Gimme some money issue you want you want our players for awhile. You can rent them effectively. We're GONNA share in the bottom line on this and let's not forget. This is not a charity. The Olympics are a business and so if you're running a business called the Olympics were running a business called the NHL and we need to see some revenue sharing. If you're going to rent our players a couple of weeks stephen even go watch. No one will now see now. I'm doing Bill Clinton. I was trying to do Morgan Freeman. And I've got a bang on Nelson Mandela. We heard in an earlier. And it's not that good your your about to listen to the Steve on project. Everybody in South Africa Oprah Winfrey. That's bang on. That is bang on Steve. Maybe we should go and ten. That's forrest Gump was that I don't know what that was. Plus it's getting late. Freeman is shipped pell. No It's good. It's good I didn't have at that time aside. It's something you have to. I didn't think Macho landed efrain there. You go not that. Happy Birthday Steve. We should go. Do you know that. Do you know that all our imitation. Steve Our impressions Russians now. The all the all morph into Mike McDonald all the time MacDonald. They do you know. I do my bang on Christopher while I can do that. And it always because you see you see. Yeah let's go ahead and show there you gotta show right. You can't go too long folks you know that's not a very good dorm Either I don't know I'm just trying to get us to the end. That's a good good night we'll see

Alright welcome to the show everybody. It is Steve It is Jimmy. It's a brand new podcast week and we're back with more tales of sports and whatever and James, what's going on. How is the weekend? You know what you're. You know when you're talking right now. Okay, this is so far were you four thousand kilometers. Yes something like that. You're an Edmonton Ottawa. When you're talking right now, my lights flicker like a voice wave, but only when you're talking. Wow. That's how electric I am. Yeah, it's like. FREAKING is freaking me out a Su- charge shoe. All Good Stevie. US Open. Back, wall-to-wall I lost my memory had the big day where you're watching softly adamant fifteen to one. To win. One hundred bucks on. Top. Five wins be nothing. Have to win. Win Win or lose or winner winner-take-all Winter. Tale. So bryson. was. Your winner by the way minus six nobody else was even under par. He won by six strokes over Matthew Wolf wed a bit of a cave in the back nine and your Zander Shaw. Fli. was what ten strokes back in. Fifth Place, Dustin, Johnson eleven strokes back. So that's your reset Kerryon. So Bryson Shambo is. If you haven't seen this guy play golf you gotta go watch him play Golf. Okay. A year ago he goes away and says, okay, I'm coming back new guy? I'm onto something here and I'm going to go away and I'm going to come back. Forty Pounds Heavier Steve. Forty pounds heavier and now the guy. Hits. It further than anybody off the tee. His driver Steve Okay. So your driver Steve is probably ten degree lofts. Looked, but it's probably ten twelve thirteen degree eleven eleven. Okay. There you go. So you're putter Steve. It's actually there is a little bit aloft on your putter. You don't realize it, but there is okay it looks like it's zero loft right? Right on a potter, but it's actually it's actually a degree or something like that. Okay. His driver Steve Zero. Zero on his I did not know that. Wow. Okay. So he tees up he won yesterday Steve Three Eighty. Now, not down wind not not running fairway not big downhill slope not hard hard fairway. Okay. All Day today. He when he just clip it, he hits a three, sixty, five, three, seventy. And What else stat to that? So that makes them amazing. Stephen Okay I can't say enough about this guy that makes them amazing that he can hit three, hundred, eighty, three, sixty, five like nothing stevie like nothing. Okay. He's aiming at spots during the tournament that nobody would not Dustin Johnson. Okay. Not. BUBBA. Watson not all the other guys who hit far. He holds the record st from this US Open Okay if that doesn't blow your mind enough how far can it? Winning the US Open with the least amount of fairways hit. Go figure that. Go figure that well, night, hit a deal you gotta stay in the fairway everybody says, you gotta stay on the fairway you're GonNa lose gotta stay in the fairway. and that's what's everybody's stretching their head add like he's just remade this tournament like he's he didn't care if he's in the rough because he's so close to the green at that stage because he's Off The tee I don't do you know what I left you with Lascaux Steve. What's it? I said I said the last time we talked about the USO and before it starts said Stevie I don't like the stats and golf, but here's what you do. If you're going to pick a winner in the US Open, you go right to that driving accuracy staff. That's what I said I. Don't remember that I said that's the guy who's going to win the. US. Open. The guy's got the greatest who's got the greatest driving stunt this guide the worst. The worst. So. He's just feel man he's just. You know an and look at look at the two pictures more gained forty pounds. Yep. Maze unconventional across the board like he like you say bulks up he's so long off the tee clubs all the same length. The one thing that people don't talk enough about either is that how he putts like he just looked so weird and staff is elbows her whole life. It's like, have you having like as you have you been taste did you? As you before he putted there. And and it works for him though. Don't only that Steve Okay here's the other thing. Okay. Don't kill yourself. Okay. Come Tournament. Okay. It's game on now. Steve the not there's no time now to go try and fix your swing right You you've heard that when you go to the I, T's Steve Okay forget everything just fund we're not owning fixture swing. Okay. This Guy Stevie. Okay. After the first or second round gets the golf course to turn the lights on the range. It's forty eight degrees, steve or forty two degrees he's out there with assured on hitting balls at night. Okay and they say anyone Stephen don't look. Don't do this. Don't try and fix your swing during tournament Oh. Yeah. Okay. He wasn't fixed after route. Just, like he's Crazy critters just a bunch of crazy different stuff. Yeah I, love the innovation of it at the innovation is what I've always admired of spoke about it with other sports as well. Guys who just try new things it's usually from a coaching vein or coaches try something new is not usually the players that are truly innovative but this guy just seems to be making a point of it and Yahoo Sports today. I wish the author's name I mean wonderful kind of in the first paragraph of the story about Shambo is win really I think captures the guy in a nutshell it reads he's got the Dude Bro Look of a California high school quarterback but the demeanor of a kid who reminds the teacher she forgot to assign homework he's with enough force to bring down redwoods then calculates launch angles and spin rates like he's tracking a shuttle launch. He's a swollen muscled Weirdo who might just be the best thing to happen to golf in a decade and now bryce into Shambo is a US Open champion. Yeah You know the other thing in Golf Right Steve, toe and. The other thing tiger woods when they're all the pundits, everyone's trying to weigh in. Why was so so good. Why is so good what he does different than anyone else can hits frequent further how does he do it and and one of the takes on Tiger was which was pretty good. Was this combination of His father was a green beret and his mother's a Buddhist and and they they start to say like Brandel Chamblee ferreting all these guys go. So that's a great combo the desire to win. Okay. As a green beret. Okay. Fight fight fight never give up. You know that sort of thing. Okay. So make a double bogey march to the next hole that can deflate a bunch of guys but not tiger here eagles and the other one in the Buddhist thing is living in the present. Okay. So living in the present living the present. So in golf. The perfect attitude or the perfect mind golf is I just hit a bad shot but now it's gone. Okay forget about it, and all I need to do is focus for fifteen seconds and that's the time that you draw the club out of the bag till the time you hit fifteen to thirty seconds okay and then off we go so we're not thinking about what we're gonNA hit Steve and we're GonNa forget what just great combo right so don't think too much. Okay. Well, let's go to Brian Listen to brazen desha before he hits the shot. You're GonNa go oh my God. How's the Guy Ever GonNa Swing it Asking how what's ten thirty, ten, thirty, plus okay plus three carry. How far is the bunker? Okay. What's the window house? The grasp here? Are we into the grain in the rough steve it's just like every shot is exhausting how he it's paralyzing what what the ship that he goes through. Like look at his Notebook Okay it looks like Warren piece math. It's no, it's not an easy this this wonderful athlete, but in there as well I'm thinking of. What's his name there? Russell Crowe in a beautiful mind I'm thinking you know a dash of autism in there as well. Maybe on the spectrum somewhere he's like no one I've ever seen or encountered. You know you see him battling with rules officials really just he's he such a unique character like. Tiger was a unique character for so many reasons but this guy man, he's on an island of his own and it's GonNa be fascinating to see what he brings us for the next decade on the PGA. Tour. Yeah, it's like here's what else he does. Steve it's like when he steps on the I T to compete. Okay, it's. It's almost like he hits a switch on his head. Okay. He hits the switch and he's totally in the arena and what was amazing amazing about this today is he's got a six shot lead playing the eighteenth hole. Okay. So it's in the bag is in the bag. Okay. It's GonNa be six shot lead at the US seve with nine to go is not in the bag. Because guys can make doubles in the rough and all that but it's it's done. It's not okay. So, rips reps drive. Okay off the tee and it goes into the rough. Okay. He marches off the tee says a quick hello to the camera only and dad hi sown. So one hold to go. Got One hole to go. No you don't know you're you're you're okay here. Right got one hold to go as he's walking up to his tee shot Steve He's he's repeating himself out. Loud. Give me a good line. Please please please give me a good like a good light. Stevia, it didn't matter. I'm like this guy is just on fricken Mars man you and then he makes us slider on the eighteenth green again, he's got like this massive lead. The doesn't really matter if it goes. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. You can live out here. It's okay but it was almost like the joy of calculating was bendy, pot Calculating it perfectly that seemed to excite him as much as the win. He was about to celebrate. Yeah. Well, it probably was. It probably was this fact of being under par and trying to I probably shoot Neva who knows like normally go we are not get off if one thing you know it's like, yeah, and apparently Steve He's he's a big historian of the game and when he walked into the clubhouse, this wing foot has been having US Open's there for one hundred years right? It's been nineteen, twenty nine I think it was the first open or something there, and they got a bunch of history. And policing was saying. that. Bryson deshaun walked into the clubhouse. He was around there and he looked up in one of the displays and said, oh. Those are Bobby Jones clubs. And and Zingers go. How did you know that goes they're all the same length. Looking they're all the same policy who said. I pride myself as a bit of a knowledge of the game histories. I had no idea. Idea about this stuff and he's GonNa Bring we're talking to Shambo. He's GonNa bring what he's doing the US Open now to the masters in November said, this is quote length is going to be a big advantage there I know that for a fact. So I'm going to try and prepare by testing a couple of things with the driver. So He's going to experiment with a forty eight inch driver shaft, which is considerably longer than the one he's using right now forty, six, two inches longer maybe. Yeah. So he's going with the longer driver to get even longer because well. As great and as wonderful as the masters is Augusta national, it's probably not going to play as hard for a guy like Shambo is did the US Open and he obviously brought winged foot to his knees. told me this. I've got a question for you. Do think so so for sure this, what they were talking about today is going to be interesting that for sure this guy's going to change the way kids come up playing. Golf okay. This is going to be I WANNA be like Bryson first of all. Okay. He's Loo Tiger so far but. So they're going to be okay, it's not good enough anymore Steve to hit at three forty. Okay. Imagine saying that these kids in our gonNA come up and try and hit. The the way he turns I don't WANNA to get too technical but the way he follows through he twists his whole body at the NFL like turns his hips whips around and his feet stevie. He turns his feet at the end like a guy in a long drive competition basically exactly. Yeah. So it's going to change. You know these kids are going to come up and learn this whole new way I. Wonder Steve. If this guy's going to have something to do with other sport, they showed a clip of. A D. H. with the Yankees I think and they did the the side by side with Bryson. Hitting a tee shot and this guy taking a swipe at homer. And they think this guy has used Bryson's. Sort of technique when he saw him hitting a golf ball but I don't WanNa hear anybody going on. I mean, Roy mcelroy was talking a little bit about you know it's not really the way we're. Accustomed to think about this and I don't know if it's good for the game or not but I do know that he's certainly dixie. Yeah a basically say was good for the he didn't say it was bad. He didn't say it was good but that was how he put it. I don't know if this is good for the game or not. But. It didn't sound like he was a huge fan of this style of golf and I'm like. Like everybody can do this. You know everybody can try and do it people talk about it as though this is unfair. It's he's gotTa make he's got to be able to drive the ball relatively law straight the not just length or he just. Like we talked about earlier. Competency exactly chips he pots is not just driving and it's not like. This is an easy thing to do because he's made all these modifications and by the way you can make them to under the USDA rules. So everybody calm down a little bit about changing the game and changing the courses. It's not easy what he's doing freaking hard. Right, and so what Roy alluding to is you know it's it's interesting. You bring this up because I had this down is a topic for you and I. First of all Rory Okay Steve is that really a comment for a Sunday afternoon when a guy wanted us open that's a great point. You've talked about that before about timing. Yeah that's just an awful and golf prides itself in Etiquette and being gentleman sport. That is the that is the. Sore loser comment I've ever heard in my life. Let me give. Just. So I'm not paraphrasing because I don't want to. Go into hard atom until I give you the fire code I don't really know what to say because that's just the complete opposite of what you think a US. Open champion does this is Roy mcelroy look he's found a way to do it whether that's good or bad for the game I don't know but it's just not the way I saw this golf course being played or this tournament being played. You should never Steve Never. Would you ever say I, don't I don't know if it's good or bad for the game. Half. An hour after the guy wins the US Open Yup. It's great for the Game Stevie is fantastic for sports. You know you're Jealous Murray. Well, that's his thing. Right when he came onto the tour, he was thought of as a long driver, right? Well, no one's really GonNa talk about you anymore when this guy's mashing it three eighty yeah, and no one is no one is you're right and You know I wonder what do you mean worry? What do you mean when you say it's going to good or bad so if it's bad for the game okay, let's ask them both that then Stevie the obvious is it's good for the game. He says that I don't know if it's good or if it's bad so I want to say Okay Rory. Let's talk about both those. What if it's good let's get both sides here and what would you say, rory, that is bad for the game. I'd like to hear what you have to say because you you just said, I don't know if it's good or bad, right? Okay. Let's pick. Okay. So what what's bad about? That this guy absolutely went away and dedicated himself twenty four freaking seven in the gym lifting weights drinking shakes. Doing doing yoga whatever he does you know that's just asinine comment from the guy you know it's like what? What, what they're thinking what they might think of what are you going to say it's not allowed that he's that strong. Right. So They look at three things. Steve, rightly like club head speed ball speed. And Height or something like that. Right and he's crushing. You need you need to have the high balls speed and the Club des beat otherwise you won't hit it for right and this guy's crushing everyone. And all these guys like rory and probably I don't know about Dustin dozens pretty cool. But all these guys like rory pissed. Swing the club as fast as this guy can right It's the only way at that level Steve that you get on that track man and they're going, okay you're only at one thirty, five club head speed. bryson's at one, forty two like you said, bad for the game how how is it in for the game like? You work harder. You know it's not just about talent a lot of his about working hard and that means not just practicing a lot but he's studying a lot. He's he's doing the training. He's committed his life to it and you should get rewarded for that. There shouldn't be any concept or discussion of penalizing guy and taking away all the things that he's accomplished. And and trying to bring him back to the pack about rewarding excellence and celebrating excellence, and certainly like you said, timing wise while the guys hoisting the US Open trophy you don't you don't insert a knife in his back and start complaining about this is good for the game. I'll tell you what I'll tell you why that's why that's way out of bounds to you excuse the Pun. Okay. Where he's saying I don't know if it's good or bad. Let's look at this scenario then rory. Let's say you won the US Open. Okay, at six under and Bryson Shambo was second. At five hundred or even okay. Brazen shambles even. Now. That's pretty good second in the US Open Steve. Pretty. Strong. Toughest tournament in the world to win toughest one to win. Are we talking about Bryson being bad for the game? Not a chance no not a fricking chat. Steve is very mcelroy making that comment. Yep You know what I mean for. Sure. Shambo came out and suddenly showed up looking like a middle linebacker. There was some whispers about it because you've got off to such a hot start but this has been kind of a dead subject in recent weeks because well, know the he hasn't won a time not not not the way he was winning right out of the gate like he had I think he had about four or five. Top Ten straight out of the gate and he was really noticeable and then he kind of you know he he's been very good. Don't get me wrong. But now that he's won something now these one the hardest tournament to win here and won easily by the way now yet like you say it now it's suddenly a discussion point again well, I don't know he's using all this technology and he's He's doing this stuff from the game I. Don't know if this this whole long game. So good for the game we don't want it up there crushing all the time it just. Let you go do it then. What's the idea? Gulf? Very, how can we? What do you have to do here to win a Golf Tournament Rory your top player in the world you're a number one at one time. Okay. You won the fedexcup. What are you do while Roy is going to go well, die you gotta shoot lower than everybody else okay. You gotta you gotTa try and shave your stroke average down a little bit. I was sixty nine point five my goal is I. got to get that under sixty nine. I'm going to win a bunch. Okay now. I don't talk to this guy right here. If you WANNA get your strokes down talk to this guy shot six, hundred us up. Fewest amount of strokes, eighteen holes, whoever does that is the is the winner is the best. That's it. That's all there is, and if you're doing it under the the the laws of the US, A. The rules then who cares how you get it done there's lots of different ways to win in various different sports whether it's individually or team sports in. There's lots of different formulas to get to where you want to be in right now to Shambo appears to have the secret sauce quicktime here when we come back final thoughts after these words.

Okay and the emmy goes to. Shits Creek. Never seen a dominance at the EMMYS. The ton. But dominance at the emmys lakes Shits Creek. Ed Tonight. Like I really yeah I watched that thing in about my wife and I just loved it. We watched the whole series in about two months. and. Five. Years Five, six years and. Yeah. So I ignored it for five six years and in the final season. We finished it up right around the season finale this year or series finale, and it was just great. But tonight as record this on Sunday night the emmys everything I've never seen anything like what are they emmys Television basically. All over the joint all over the joint the EMMYS are. Basically world and the emmys TV's Oscars and they want everything they won like. As, we record this Eugene. Levy had won best actor in a comedy Kathy O'Hara best actress in a comedy any Murphy best supporting actress in a comedy Dan. Levy best supporting actor in a calm. No Way Dan Levy best writing Dan Levy best director. It was like what is this? This is unbelievable, and so I thought I'd I thought it'd happened upon I knew it was quite popular but I was like I rolled through just shoot it up and I was like this is unbelievable. So good and then it's all said and done. Okay, I was cool but I had no idea it was as popular as it clearly is based on what the EMMYS have tonight. It's Yup. I've been told by a number of people. because you know me, I'm the barometer right for shows. PEOPLE STILL CAn't get over Steve when the a hit me on twitter I'll get a lot of guys listened to your show here. I'll get a tweet from going Jimmy. You check out this one. It's the Best Yep Yep Yep Yep Yep Yep I've seen them all and I got a lot and I've never watched Shits Creek and I've been getting people like maniacally over the last two months. And now it's Just, validated, stevie. Should Watch. Yeah. I'd say so I'd say. So if you like modern family, you'll probably find shits creek really good and then the gist of the show is Eugene Levy plays a a billionaire. Who Ran? He ran a chain of. Video stores, and well, if they, they've obviously hit a bit of a wall and then of course on right on top of that I, guess is his financial guy stole all his money. So they're left penniless they're left leave their mansion and the only thing that was that he had left to his name was a town that he bought. As a joke. Called Shits Creek he bought it to get an auction and that ended up being their salvation but yeah, quite a good show. And of course. It's father son Right Yep and if you haven't seen the show, you might be tempted to think well, Eugene Levy I've heard of that guy on SCTV's been lots and lots of movies. He must be the true star of the show and while Eugene did win the best actor. Dan Levy Hassan is definitely the star that whole thing I gotta say Eugene Levy was he was great because he he setv. Right? He was he was really strong and you're funny guy he almost got out of the way of the others like he was. He was kind of the straight man through this whole thing. He kind of he could have played a wacky funster but he more played the you know the father figure literally and and just let everybody else shine. That's what I thought anyway. Got To watch it, we should go. We've done enough damage for one day. Any final thought I think I'm out of thoughts. Thoughts TV I don't know it was. Well. Thirty some someone sent me a email. Thirty three years ago they talked about the Canada Russia series Steve Copps Coliseum nineteen, eighty seven. I did a talked about today on the spendable Cindy you're producing. Two things Stevie, if you look at the roster. Of guys who who played on that team of course, the main two regrets inland meal. Okay. But those two guys so they played nine games in the Canada Cup. The. Final was best to three right Stevie. It's the Russians it was. Mario lemieux and Wayne Gretzky in that tournament thirty three years ago. Of the exact date, but it's this month thirty, three's. Combined for thirty nine points in nine games. That's I. Don't think I'm wrong I don't think. I'm wrong. Grad said twenty one. Mariel had eighteen or nineteen and Wayne only had three goals. Marrow had eleven or twelve. Where those days, Stevie Okay can we bring back a little bit of the lemieux Gretzky things somewhere never Canada Russia. Austin Matthews failure. Okay. Connor. Pretty good but you gotta start to win some Cups Connor. Okay. Until you get up there connor pretty strong. Okay. Like, but he doesn't quite have the whole two hundred point thing going. No no one ever will know. You'll never get that back as Lemieux Gretzky if they played in today's NHL. They obviously be you know obviously top of the charts as far as points go, but that will never happen again nor will the the whole angle of the fear of the Russians there are fifty Russians playing in the NHL Right now it's not it's gone away a little bit that that sort of fear of the Russians I gold they're coming to take our game and now they're part of the NHL. So that is that's taken a bit of the shine off of because prior to nineteen eighty seven, there were no NHL players from Russia isn't that something yup? Russ was talking about maybe mogilny was the first guy to come over and was it yeah. He was the first Soviet player to defect to the NHL. Have you seen those expression Stevie? On facebook will someone will say you ask someone how old are you Steve? Right and you're going to tell me whatever your ages right or you say it this way. I'm I'm can't find the remote old. Yes. Shit that's going on facebook right I'm can't find the remote old. They are. I. But now you and I are going Gonna be able to say when your grandkids ask you, how old are you? I'm there were no Russians allowed. All. Right, I'm that old I'm I'm so old there was a time when there were no Russians allowed old that's old I am yacht. stevie madness we are getting old as pasta bedtime. Let us call it a day.

The Steve Worn Projects, sports and whatever. Everybody welcome to our program. It's the S W with tales of sports and whatever. Utility Belt Stephen. Jimmy schmoozing it up once a gain here in our weekday podcast James. How're things? Things are fine. Stevie things are absolutely fine. Big Big. Big Day today Steve, Y'all would you do I went downtown. Okay and Well it's just big. It's big for me now I feel you know. That I'm you know I? Had to do this thing have been thinking about it for a few days. And I decided it took me a few days and I decided. Yup I'm going to go downtown. Wow. Well. Big thing was it to exit a rectal exam or something or nothing? It was nothing I had to go drop off something and. It reminds me once again as you say, the nine thousand reasons that I hate getting old you know does the remind me of my mother? where she she'd have on the calendar Steve When you get old. This is what happened these. These are daunting tasks, stif. Okay. Daunting task. Going downtown on the calendar you like. Five days ahead of time this thing up. My theory is as you get older when you get older, you know things that you may be previously had ranked from one to ten as far as your ranking life's hassles. No. That was when you're younger I think everything when you get to a certain age becomes a Tan and it all becomes one great hassle. Yeah. It used to be like my mom, my mom used to say Be like minus five or something you know. So. Is She I'd say I'll be over in a bit meme as you. Oh, good God. Don't go out in this cold. Like. Ten. You know whatever? Seven on the Richter scale of tornado happening or something well I. Think it's all by designing and think about it. It's probably a smart. For only going to be here temporarily on the planet, you probably won't have something built in the by the time it's time to go. You're like. I didn't feel like doing anything anyway say otherwise is really you know you just really really heartbroken and stuff I'm going to miss this. I'm going to miss that and it's like by the end you're like I don't care. I used to drive to Toronto on a whim. Right it'll. Go Toronto again, my current I'd go. You know now. Downtown. Go to the. Grocery store today. Yeah. Geez just went an ordeal, my God terrible ordeal speaking of ordeals, the senators of course I'm an Ottawa here you're out in Edmonton and of course, my teams, the sends fuzz to pick one team. That, I was Most smitten with that, I'd want to give up the least it would be my NHL team. and watching the sense they've gone through an ordeal after another. And the last three years really they've been a black cloud gang. But over the last few days, last week, people have been going well, maybe the black cloud has lifted. That sweet day last week that draft they did. So well, at the draft, they unveiled new uniforms they brought in a potential star, Goalie Cup winner and Matt Murray just felt like, Hey, maybe they're turning a corner here right and and certainly they may have. But just I was not ready already for a black cloud headline. And that was that their first pick in this year's NHL draft third overall with Tim stood SLA. Well, he's going to be sidelined six eight weeks after having surgery on his hand. Later, this week he got hurt while training know specifics were given on exactly how he was injured probably some Lee Fan poking ascends dollar sends Voodoo doll with a pin or something crazy like that. I don't know but Yeah, it's. I mean the not going to start 'til January first, which is what about they ten eleven twelve weeks away. So he's going to be back in time for training camp it just to see that headline. I wasn't mentally ready for that. What what do you mean got hurt training. Her head practicing training bail doing a drill something in the fitness department. Don't know if it was on or off the ice like you say, no specifics. The details were which always leads me to believe that something weird happened. That was something they may be shouldn't have been doing. Who knows right? Yeah. Who knows because I always said, you know when we bring up the black cloud, right? That's that's sort of the sends demise over the last little while right from ownership, the front office changes to to not making the playoffs. So when they made that big deal for the goalie. For, Matt you know I thought that's how that's how you get rid of all the bad press. You know make a huge move right? Because you can't win. You know you're just not winning these days. So the fans are all down on the team and particularly the owner. So the best not right now though I mean say the last week finally, they've been kind of feeling about things right? Like, yeah. Like I said last week that's a that's a great idea. That's a great idea to sort of hush everyone up going yeah. Here we go. Ramel Big Olten two time Stanley Cup so and now's now slowly sure you're getting. You're getting the the you know the drudge slow. Massage, of Shit, happening broken hand there from draft pick. That used to be what we knew and loved by Bobby. Ryan we knew that no matter what within about he's never more than ten games away from breaking a finger. Because he had the worst luck in the world when it came to hand injuries and and a lot of its honestly today's NHL player they want the they literally want the soft mets they and they're just so lacking in protection. I. Don't know if you've thrown on a pair hockey gloves in the last ten years is ridiculous. Not just everybody knows they're short. So they really expose the rest, but there's almost zero protection. You might as well be out there wearing isotoner or something. Just not. Protecting. The quarterback from Miami Marino. and. Of course, a lot of a lot of those guys the comment you always hear after going great pick up their nice grab. Great Trade. For Skater knows they always say you know what do you like about them? All of them still unbelievable hands okay. Great Hands. The guy's got a nifty hands. Never seen hands like that on anyone why do you like his hands now? Great hand got a great hand carried out. By the way Bobby Ryan signed in Detroit the guy's making seven million dollars a year and two years left on his contract in Ottawa and So they bought them out I. Think it was ten million dollars was the full buyout, and so we signed on in Detroit for like a one year one, million dollar deal a bit of a drop-off in pay. But of course, he can say I, don't really need a lot of money because the sense are paying me five million dollars a year, not play hockey for them. Grabbing grabbing a veteran player for a million bucks. Regardless of who injury or Whatever they've been through. Yeah, I, would want. Stevie wine making the making the good deals. Yeah. Deal I would want Bobby Ryan on the senators at that price tag because I think there's real opportunity for that guy to kind of bounce back. For the last this issue that he had dealing with alcohol. I would assume you know it continues to be an issue in the off season. So it affects training and all that and to me the last three years. Bobby Ryan one of his biggest issues is that on the ice is not seemed I don't know physically ready for prime time. He just has not been as robust as you need to be up there energy. Wise. To, make me think that he's going to be an effective H. L. Player but if he's got these problems in demons behind him now. Maybe HE'LL BE A. Considerably better. I'd almost want Bobby Ryan at a million dollars a year. As A. No no no. But even the guy that was underachieving for the last three, four years at a million dollars a year I'd probably pick them up but that but I think he can be a whole lot more than that in the coming season. Well Yeah when there is or not Down to the Dole there and like a fantastic, how do you get a guy for a million bucks these days in the NHL? Good grab for sure. Now there was an interesting NFL story that came across my desk listening to Mike Tomlin and he's the Pittsburgh steelers head coach and he's getting ready for the Cleveland Browns who of course defensively are led by Myles Garrett and all of a sudden your memory banks get tickled a little sure Pittsburgh versus Cleveland course fighting for top spot atop the AFC north. They're both excellent this year so far, and it's the first time that myles Garrett is going to line up against the steelers since his infamous helmets swinging attack on backup quarterback Mason Rudolph in November of last year, and Tomlin's trying to downplay it. We're bigger things to worry about lot on the table in this game. This isn't reality TV. We're not looking for that low hanging fruit or reality TV storylines a big game in twenty twenty. And Garett on the other hand says I've moved past it. It was just a small bump in the road. So I don't know in a situation like that where you had a uniquely dirty play where one teams quarterbacks getting bombed over his unhelmeted head. With his own helmet. I wonder will anything linger from that? It's always the Guy Stevens says, we got move forward. The Guy who victimized the other guy you know. Were find that. That's true. Listen I'm over it what are you over? Well, the fact I smashed his skull but the with his helmet. I've moved past that. Yes. Well, let's let's talk to the other side. Charles. Manson, he is. So over mass killing. I'm over that I've moved past it. Why don't you people move past it? We got to move forward. You got you can't live in the past Steve. So maybe just. Get this thing all out of the way Steve just go out there right away and clete the guy in the bag. Okay. Just Fair right right away go there. Okay. All right. Is there one happy now they're stuck up that can we move forward now? Okay. Just nodded them. Okay. There was one I think it might have been Pittsburgh and it might have been Cleveland remember that play where there was a steelers punt returner I think it was might have been receiver but. Now is a punt return because it was the Punti, did it to and the punters the last man? And the guy comes up and he does this Kung. Fu. Karate style kick on the Guy Right in the face jumps up and kicks the guy in the face and just keeps going. Crazy. You've got you've got me onto the dirtiest things in sports. Yes. That was the jumping off point that that whole myles Garrett because it was one of the dirtier things you'll ever see a guy clobbering someone over his. Bare head is bare skull with a helmet what stands out for you as one of the dirtiest plays you've ever seen in sports. Auto Guy. Martin have to give the guy the skate. When he was, he kicked a guy. That's that's that's bad. That's bad. Steve Don't think he was lying down though yeah. Kicked kicked by by the way Marty before you do that if you check your blades, you gotTa Blade there on your on your boot. Blade. Okay. So that was that one the the one that always sticks out to me though always does and has for years I don't know if you've seen it but there was a hair polar female soccer player. Who she was. She was like. She was a serial cereal dirty dirty play girl dirty play. I don't know if you ever saw sort of you know she's waiting for the ball to come. She was defending I think or whatever in one of the ends and there was a girl in front of her kind of kind of defending her I. Guess you know and she just. A ponytail girlfriend and she's just reached up, grabbed it by the base of the ponytail and yanked down as hard as she could almost snap the chicks neck and if that wasn't bad enough, they had about nine other incidents or this chick was like the dirtiest. Kicked out of the League that one always sticks out to me. Well, certainly easy to find because he just Google dirty female soccer player and that is all you'll find and that's Elizabeth Burt. Who played for the New Mexico Lobos Women's soccer team, and this is like well over a decade ago now. But you know putting things in context if you had told me, that was a career's worth of dirty place for one player I would have believed you it was all happening in one freaking game against you. That girl became frightening I'm like I wouldn't go near that girl on a soccer game. Chop, you're picking arm of mess chopped a guy in the lake I. Think a Russian player pretty notorious and behind the net think two handed the guy broke his leg. That was that was pretty dirty. But what about you? What? What what sticks out I remind you can't remind you got to come up with the fresh? Yeah. No I've got a few I've got I think one of just because of the intent of it and it being a suck fit and having time to think about it. When I saw Dale Hunter takeout Pierre Tertio all yes. That was a bad one. That was a I. Don't know. Let's say late eighties early nineties something like that but it was basically Washington losing to the islanders. And tertiary scores the game winning goal in overtime and he celebrating like he's said a chance, he scores in the middle of the ice and it's like one, thousand, two, thousand and three thousand, and then Dale Hunter wipes him out into the boards like it was just so gross and I think Turgeau missed some games as well. I think he might have separated his shoulder. I don't know if he was out for the rest of the playoffs, but it wasn't the same after that and I just thought that was all kinds of dirty. Yeah well, well, you gotta go to. Marty mcsorley, right? Martin the big twenty plus game or something suspension. That's a few years back now playing t-ball Donald Brashear basically just. thinking. Mar Have you ever talked to him about that? You guys are friends. He's not afraid to talk about it. He's not afraid to talk about. Memory Fades a little bit. Now, the last time I did interview but. Yeah, yeah he's. He's not afraid to face that. So. What did you say like what was he thinking I i? Forget Steve to be honest with the he defended himself though it wasn't. It wasn't like he was contrite about the whole thing he's. Came came from the of all Lou. All right. That's not what I expected to. Right. I'm we're going to get him on one day we'll get we'll get him on the show stevie great. And he's he's got lots to say about that. But those those were pretty big dirty ones. I got suspended Steve Speaking of dirty. I got suspended from seeing my brother-in-law for about two months. Yeah he barred me from any sort of socializing with them. Okay. So this is my ex wife and her sister. And her husband showed up at one of my kids basketball games. Nice slim right to come and watch sport the kids and and they're always like Saturday afternoons or the Saturday morning and almost always we would we would go out we take all the kids to a restaurant. After the game and solve the game finished they've got a couple of kids there and our kids are milling around and more my kids. Okay. Let's go to the restaurant. RIGHT WE'RE GONNA go to the restaurant and my brother-in-law Randy says, no, we can't go today. Okay. So we're we're in our feet Steve Right because you're in the gym right you gotta take your shoes off when you go into the gym and and he's sort of looking at me and I very innocently Steve Give it to sort of tap on the shoulder with a little shove. Oh. Come on Randy. You know come on right as a joke and he sort of he sort of stumbles back a little bit Steve Okay and then and then he just he ends up. Going to a full contortion and his arms are waving you know doing the windmill back and forth and Downey goes Steven's feet coal right out from underneath of Downey goes and smashes his elbow. Okay. On the on the floor. And, his wife look. What, what do the devil? Wrong with you and I'm going Oh my God, Ram. I'm so sorry you know as a getaway for me get away from me.

Maybe, do a couple of deep knee bends their randy. You're clearly lacking in lower body strength what the hell exactly as weird. Anyway. I, mean I can understand it because I had a guy in high school. He always like he he liked it always shadow boxer they like. Give you a little shot in the arm or shot it barely barely even feel it. Right, and then every once in a while ago and do it toward your nose right and I was like, okay. Well, that's a good stick and all and after he done that about one hundred times on the hundred first occasion, he caught me right in the nose and I'm bleeding like stuck pig but even then I knew there was no intent behind it it was just him being a. Trying to be fun and goofy and but he caught me and he was like, Oh, my God i. feel. So I didn't go call them the devil and there was a lot more A. Lot more danger and intent behind what he did than. You did your brother in law. That's just weak. Yeah, I did. The other one, the other one I did. Not so bright. Okay. Not so bright was when I was in the school yard, I had a new baseball glove Steve and a ball. Okay. Great Five. There's lots better than a new baseball glove and a ball, the softball, the softball and. Throw it into handwrite. You're just like take drill in the ball into your into your glove right to to to. Check and show my buddy for two, and then I would I would sort of pretend I was throwing it at them and then pulled. Put the glove up in front of their face and catch the ball and scare them and stuff like that Steve until I went dead it to Randy Britain. Okay he was standing there went fake Aaron. I threw the ball and it tipped off the the the top edge of the webbing Steve and smashed them in the mouth Oh. Teeth. Yikes, am the Devil Steve Maybe I. Just haven't he hasn't broken the news. He inhabits you. He just hasn't let you know yet you know I did something else to one at Saint Jo's me and my brother and my brother Paul and we play basketball before the start of the first class. You know we'd get him and I were just in the gym dribbling around right and we're doing layups and. I don't know if we were playing one on one or summer just we were just horsing around and so I go to do a little up and he's waiting there looking up at the neck to watch the ball and instead of doing the layup I go fake and I throw the ball at them. Okay and he puts his hand up. Like what the freak puts his hand up and the ball hits his Middle Finger, Steve on the tip of the finger and it drives the finger straight back and dislocates the knuckled nearest. ooh Yeah. That's a tough one to dislocate. Yeah. Yeah. It really is. Maybe I am the devil.

Welcome back to the Shoe Shoe James. Patrick Marlowe returning to the San Jose Sharks. For another season, he signed a one year deal with the club today, a smooth seven, hundred, grand the league minimum in that being in an industry where the League minimum is seven, hundred, thousand dollars a year life is good. That's what he made. Last year rejoining. San Jose. Doug Wilson. Pleased to have them there I don't think he's there for as much a PR reason as any guys forty one. Now, he had all of twenty two points last season split with the sharks and Penguins and the neat thing about him. Is that he looks like he's going to surpass Gordie Howe for career NHL Games played I had to read that twice because I'm thinking to myself like most hockey fans going Gordie Howe play until he was seventy three years old how is that even possible? But of course, he played some time in the W. A. J. Like five six years they're retired entirely for two straight years and That's why he's NHL Games played totals aren't crazy but Marlowe is on pace he will need forty five games to pass Gordy Howe for career NHL Games played and that would be something. That's unbelievable. And gordy member. Gordy. Came back and suited up for one shift. So you could say played in one more decade I remember that I was disappointed by that. It was kind of a dumb. So it put them playing five decades. Six decades. The late nineties I think it was while the IHL was still going he played for the Detroit Vipers for one game. Stupid. Yeah. I would think, Steve The way the game's changed since Gordie House date. Okay. So think about this in that day got guys could play forever. Okay. The they weren't as big. The game wasn't as fast. They weren't as dirty. And a bunch other stuff that gave longevity when you played hockey. A who who would ever think a kid who gets You know comes into the NHL Saving in the last twenty years. Okay. With how fast and hard the game is compared to those days and say I, Bet this Guy Breaks Gordon House record for all time games I would never ever that that's one of the records that now that you bring it up that I say we'll never be broken. You just can't just like the Games too big. It's too strong. It's it's way way way more physical than it ever was so for to do that. Hall of Famer Yop Stevie I'd say, is there any element of the game from Gordon House era? That was superior to where the game is. Now I have one that POPs to mind but not many others and that one with a hangover they were better back then. They'll drank like Matt Stevie beautiful beautiful and a serious. The one thing is that I think the. The wildness in the entertainment value was in my opinion like watching nineteen eighties hockey. As a kid like it was crazier it wasn't so perfect like perfection on both sides of the puck. It just leads to not a lot happening. It's not that I don't fully respect everything that's happening on the ice like an and everything that went into it both from a preparation and organizational standpoint like it's all done better. Now, everything is better now with the exception of the overall entertainment value because it was just bananas sometimes you just be like you'd see about a million scoring opportunities on one shift and guys falling over sideways and Gullies that are you know we're in these tiny equipment you can't believe he made that save and there's more goals being scored and just guys with the puck and lots of room to operate. Just, the overall entertainment picture I would argue was probably better in the eighties but I don't think much else was. Well you know you're right because the fighting was big right and think of think of the broad street bullies you know in Philly Terry Riley right? He was a maniac. A played for. Boston. Knuckles knuckles. Nyland you know back back in the day the Calgary oilers deal. With Cement Co. Dave Brown Marty mcsorley. And Still Grimsson played for Calgary. Then Jimmy Kite was a fighter who ended up playing in Calgary as well as Winnipeg, you're right. You're right those those were barn burners I. Remember I remember everyone being. Keyed up like it was game seven of the Stanley Cup Final San. Calories come into town. Let's. Let's go drop everything Man Yeah You're right. You're right. To me the best way I can describe it would be nine, thousand, nine hundred, and we're lucky in that. We can compare today to then vintage wise to me the nineteen eighties and the entertainment value was better 'cause like today's hockey to me is a tug of war. You're impressed by it. Of course, it's tug of war, but the eighty hockey was a barroom brawl, right? It was anarchy and that was really way more interesting than a tug of war. Right. Well, when was the last time and it was not uncommon? Back in those days when you were talking about, we're hockey was more exciting for the bench clearing brawl. Steve. That was that was a household expression they're going to be. There was going to be a bench clear. There's going to be a bench Clare Stevie tonight we gotta go to that game you. Know what else bench cleared? Was it those a short period of time in the seventies? Were they bench clear to celebrate goals like everybody got off the bench to celebrate no way it happened for a while they finally put their foot down and say came like just it's a goal guys go sit on the bench. Ridiculous Well Russ Russ Gordon leaving talks about when they're when a fight with breakout. That everyone's sorta hovers around and you'd have to grab guy. You know you'd grab guys back then and and you know single off right and there'd be. Two or three other fights that would break out doesn't happen anymore. You're right. This is me saying they should get fighting under the game. Well anyway Congrats to Patrick Marlowe on finding another gig and and and San Jose. Why not? So still I mean the guys forty-one about him, he can still fly like the wind the guy's big and fast just not have the offensive touch. Like Chris Chellios. He played till. He was like forty eight Yep. Still, hanging around with the thrashers by the end he was bouncing around. He doesn't have as many games God. That's seven years more than this guy right now. It's A. Gorgeous. The record I'm assuming right Gordon's the all time record all-time. This got to go by the time. He's forty two. He'll. He'll. He'll have established that record I guess Chellios must have been injured here and there, and maybe played sparingly near the end. but his games played numbers are fantastic easy all aid in one, thousand, six, hundred, fifty, one games. So you get awfully close because Gordie Howe played one, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, seven NHL game. So he was on his way, but just rented a racetrack anyway. that. That's just something ideas not thought no one whatever. The most games played in the NHL with a guy who played three decades ago. Yeah. Now. It's amazing for sure and. And I I, I'm with you. It's it's GonNa be hard to ever think about somebody because you have to maintain that speed level even like the guy like Yager. He tried and tried to stay in the NHL long as he could. He's bouncing all over the league by the end and in his youth you're like Oh my God that's an amazing hockey player you get past Gretzky Lemieux Yager is right in that echelon that good but time gets most of us and slow is us all down? It hasn't done that in the case of Chris Chelios. Obviously eventually did but. Nor is Patrick Marlowe. Marlow is doing it more with speed and shelly did it more with fitness and being physical and as the game stopped being about? Being a nuisance in the corner and muck ended up in the front of the net, you have to be able to skate then chellios faded by the end as as he had a great run though for sure. But yeah, I. Don't think many guys are going to be able to do it to get all the way to the end now will and keep the speed up through it into their forties just isn't GonNa Happen I'll tell you what Steve Okay and I know you want to get out of here. Okay Marlow is GONNA to forty five more games to establish the all-time mounted games. Yes. Sir You know what you're forgetting here. Don't Count Gordie Howe Steve He may come back no no. Don't count him out Steve. I'll tell you what he may he may I don't know how old he is right now he said but they may he may lay some up Steve just to come in for one more shift. Or even four or five more games. Yeah. Got Some got some terrible news credible incredible if he did. Yeah. Because, he's old zolt though so he's for that time delays passed away James I'm sorry to break the news. You'RE GONNA slip immediately into bereavement mode by John No. Longer with us no chance of a comeback maybe his ghost will come back and play a few games he's. He's dead. Yeah, he's that good. Steve. He's that good. He may come back from the dead. If anyone. It's that guy we're making news here Steve This is going to go viral. Today on Steve Warren Project. I believe I've been watching that that haunted house show lately the haunting of blind manner I. saw that today I believe you might be onto something area. You're not a fan you're not a fan already. Decided popped on their promoting okay. Trending shows or whatever it I saw it. Pass Steve. Pass really kick. Flip flip flip next. One. Game my wife brought me a couple of pizza slices. I'm going to go into that right now enjoy your day James. Showcase. Event to see good night tonight. What is it everybody lyrics accent to close the show stick to the script Jim. We'll see.

I got the Guy Behind me with the kid we're trying to sleep in the kids raveling the bag jake okay making all the noise with the rappers and everything I got johnny going crazy trying to get something from the stewardess and tell them so. The flake gets canceled. Okay Steve Flight gets canceled. It's because of weather some impending storm. That's most to commit so off we go there. We supposed to be on standby how we'RE GONNA go to Sudbury lava by S- well. Let's go check in with the guy. Maybe maybe we get some <hes>. Maybe get a little Skrela back here stevie right yeah. Maybe get a little money off the flight. Maybe maybe got put us up in the hotel right. Maybe we'll we'll wanted to the streets Toronto. You know what it's like. Steve around there for the girls of the night is perfect around the airport right sure perfect anyway. We might were thinking we could do all that so I said look at <hes> you you know what Johnny I don't think so. I think we're screwed because it's weather so we're not an apparently there's all this new policy now from all the airlines that they're gonNA pay four grand. If you miserable all the ship. I said it's weather. We're not going to get back. He goes <hes> Shit. You're right area right. PULL UP TO THE GUY Steve to find out about our bags nice guy from Air Canada and I say listen what what happens with us now. The flight's been canceled. Can we get on another flight. Guy Goes well.

What are you guys going to do to compensate us for the flight and I'm looking at him? He's gone maniacal. The guy says nothing nothing because it's weather and joining us. I don't think so no okay no. He's losing his mind. He's losing as mine anyway. I'm sick of sick of a museum was the right on the golf course or is he going sideways their break in clubs bags okay he used to be okay is bugging me a little bit though on the golf course so the trip was good got disovery play with my old buddy Steve. It's all childhood friends of mine. <hes> the the wardell brothers we grew up together had a great time. <hes> everyone is an absolutely shitty Golfer. All of us knowing in play at all anymore or your including yourself in that you're the goal. You're the Gulf SNOB on the Gulf sny ship forty eight or something. I was okay in the back but the boys were just as bad my buddy. Johnny was okay <hes> but the other labs were just as bad so you mean your former buddy johnny my former buddy johnny. That's right now that you've ripped him like this so publicly well now. I'm trying to find a place to stay about. My old buddy marks place place job. I'm gonNA take Johnny. You know what I'm saying. You gotTA travel companion. It should be my way steve that we do things all right well. Johnny was the guy was <hes> he's he's really the number one star of this particular episode of the podcast because after you know once again it happens from time to time we have technical issues and it turns out after about a twenty five minute <hes> diagnosis process. Johnny finally realizes that you've got the microphone just turned backwards in your speaking speaking into the back of it. That's true they're only reason Janis good at a computer because a computers the only person that will deal with him okay. That's why that's why he's making his way around a laptop okay anyway. That's sure I had the Mike and Mike backwards anyway up in Subra Great Beautiful Country Big Tournament qualifying round tomorrow Steve My goal. Tomorrow is eighty one okay. That's my goal why well because I'm just not fucking in good anymore. Okay it's not it's not that's that's how bad I am. Okay so eighty-one the goal so when I talked to you Sunday night we'll see how I did. I we'll talk a little bit about the British Open and David Duval like shooting a ninety imagine we're being a guy who had fifty nine in the P._G._A.. Tour and ends up with a ninety. We'll get to that in just a second here but I wanted to talk about my day a little bit here. I saw somebody's frustrating like let's why can't you talk about my Dave now. You've had your say. Why can you talk about my day in any of that? We had to cook. We had a cook top nightmare like a customer service nightmare but I made the rookie mistake I I was dealing with a new store for the first time because our cook top somebody leaned a little too hard on it and put their hand through our this really expensive cook top that we had so they punched it or something all these leaned a little too heavily as they're sorta reaching for something and just sort of went right up and went through it so that was the end of that and I found a good deal at a stored haven't worked with before and <HES> I didn't ask the golden question like what happens. If I need to return this I just went in what a great deal this things beautiful and you're telling me at fits okay. He's a my dimensions tensions. You say it fits great and so I pick it up and roll and guess what happens I get at home. It doesn't fit. When did you measure the stove in the store? I figured the professionals would know what the hell they're talking about. I give them the dimensions of my whole. You know high like got to do that so I bring the unit back and you know what they tell me. What we need you to do is take this unit back home? Jump online now enter all the info about what's going on right you <hes> then take a bunch of photos of the unit a bunch of photos of the packaging then you upload it and then you hit send I do all that like an idiot and nothing happens. I do it again. Nothing happens and so I see this little. Hey let's chat bat box so I clicked chat Annabella pops on I she she the suggests I change browsers now like I'm losing my mind right now like I. I've taken the unit back to the store. They've sent me home and you can't just and I'm not I'm pretty tech savvy. I'm pretty good on computers and so we're going back and forth and I'm getting sarcastic and <hes> finally I do change browsers. I finally send photos <hes> and then I got the last step in this thing after click a box that reads this I may be charged twenty five percent for a restocking fee and delivery repair charge. Do you agree all so I get back with Annabella and start raging at her and she said well it was on in your receipt so I grabbed my teeth year and I look at it and sure enough. It's in the fine freaking print and I said well what's daily but come on now if you're doing something that uncommon and that unreasonable you'd think maybe the sales guy had point that out before. Foyer send you off with your Nice Cook Top. This wouldn't have happened. If you want to just measured the stove got the dimensions that is true that is true anyway but that does seem unreasonable anyway so that was my my day of rage so if I seem a little short with you today that's that's what's happening what you're okay. We're even by the way Steve The girls in northern Ontario in Sudbury <hes> Stu- wrong really stuff. Yes yes like different from one. You're a teenager I don't. I don't know if they're all. I don't know if they're all chewing on rocks or something. It's all rock up here. There's something but they're just strong. That's all like strong as in lifting things no strong isn't looks man hot who why would shooting rocks help that because it's all rocks up here and it's all bedrock you know I didn't I haven't asked them. We're going to get to our web poll. <hes> in a second we've also got the British opening all the carnage among the famous guys like the the most famous players all really pretty much struggled at the British Open in Northern Ireland Ron Francis in Seattle and a whole lot more.

I completely had to kick my son Michael off of his show. Yeah Annoying Orange was going in the background Apple Apple. Hey Hey Apple. Hey Apple he apple. Hey Apple Apple. Hey Hey added why it's what is it orangey glad. I didn't say apple again. Then joke was funny the first four hundred times he said it and we're having trouble with the Internet net as well so I had to kind of shot him down so he may become an bark and a bit from time to time if you need me to get over there Stephen Fix problems splashing and do that so the open returns is to in Northern Ireland after sixty eight year absence Royal Fort Rush and it is <hes> j._v. homes was the first round lead right now but if the storyline more is about the famous guys who had absolutely disastrous Astra's nightmare days the whole idea steve was. We're GONNA market the shit out of this. Apparently it was the president of that club who wanted to get it in Ireland before she retired so she gets it done. It's massive news. The British open is moving into it's been in Northern Ireland before was never been in Ireland so it's moving to Ireland. Everyone's going that's crazy. tailor-made is making a sixty one degree wedge 'cause rory shot that course regular Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah stevie the it completely lately backfires completely backfires. There's no way ever ever ever this will happen again. When guys are making eights Roy's making eight when tiger woods with Tagger said he played Bat he shut six or seven or eight over something like that but a bunch of these high hi numbers right divide what fourteen or fifteen or something on all yet a fourteen David Duval yeah that the poor bastards okay running this thing Steve? Could there be a worst guy for them to make a high number on a whole when he is now one of the top commentators on the Gulf. Check okay this guy right bring. This guy brings at every. He's a really good commentator. David developed real good color guy but I think I think it. I think that's going to be the story that a bunch of these guys are going to say. There's no way we're coming back accurate. I think the weather was okay wasn't it wasn't that bad. No it was <hes> that wasn't the issue is just <hes> the was wind for sure but there was just a number of guys that especially the famous ones would not just David Duval. I mean his his his best as long behind us but <hes> to see rory to see tiger. Even Phil Mickelson was seventy six after you know there's something he really wanted so badly that he wanted a big old diet when an fasting diet and las fifteen pounds look pump for the thing and this came out and didn't do much of anything right well. I it'll be interesting to see what happens if this is just going to be a one a one time thing Steve. I have a statistician with me. Oh really which I've always wanted. I've always thought I pack a punch Steve when I broadcast okay whether it's a podcast or radio or you know people I it turns it. Steve People Start to listen. I've always thought I should have a statistician so I think what's really only happen here is that you've got guys who are in the same room as you heard you almost like a like a guy who's drowning. They feel like throwing you a statistical lifeline with all the questioning of things that you were doing just now no well. I think it backfired. I really really do I'm Ju just from the result of that and he's crazy scores and now all that being said Steve a bunch of governors are in the on the front page bunch of gunners or within five shots Brooks Kepco once again unbelievable unbelievable double that guy and I don't know why Steve I don't like him. I don't like him. He bugs me in his media interviews. He said the other day that he doesn't practice now of this he says that's the only Gulf you'll ever see me. Playing is when I'm on T._V.. And a tournament they just want to fucking choke the guy but he's so good. He's so good. You know what I totally agree like air. I heard Eric Carlson talking one time about he. I don't work out as a okay their whole the whole league and ended about fifty thousand other hockey players who are good enough to maybe one day in the N._H._l.. I all work in their ass off. In this guy never works out. I know that he sort of changed and he's doing more now as he gets older but when he was younger he'd say that and it used to drive me crazy easy yeah. It's just it's it's. It's beyond sort of smug. You know. It's like it's it's. It's you know it's not even the humble brag. Their humble brags the girl going online sing. You won't believe that I walked by construction crew today and I'm for women's rights and they yelled out God. You're you're a Swedish sugar on Vanilla Cookie and you know what folks I'm okay with that. That's the humble break Steve Right Kapka. Not The humble brag. You know you're like the guy the guy that you call your girlfriend. I I'm not clear on why you call them girlfriend John J-o-h-n and not just your buddy girlfriend okay but he's a lot like Brooks Kapka Steve Leave this. I am a at a loss for words. Did you just say that my boyfriend girlfriend Buddy D._J.. Is a lot like Brooks Kepco I did with this. This may be our last podcast as we are. last-gasp has cast baby yeah no. He's not he's got the swagger. D._J.'s got the swagger he's not. He's these nowhere near the Eagle that kept Kaz you know at least he doesn't present that way on T._v.. And he doesn't person anyway but what the the thing is Steve. It's bullshit okay for Golfer to compete and played the level. These guys are planning to got all these young kids coming at them day after day tournament after to get go on T._v.. And say I don't practice. I don't believe you. I don't believe do you not a chance to see when he's walking around with his girlfriend. Even like didn't seem to be any warmth there per se I feel like that guy does nothing but golf and practice us and workout right good point good point is true saying we shut your Mouth Brooks. You Play Golf. It's your life you do it for a living and you're and you're saying I don't practice very much. Shut the F. UP Brooks. So that's how I feel about that Steve. That's how you feel about that. How do you feel about the new topgun trail in its out today? I am I Steve You. Just you just minimized all my problems. I can't wait. It's top gun maverick starring. Tom Cruise back again is math and <hes> you know what I'm actually a big Ed Harris fan and Ed Harris fantastic actor of loved abdomen everything he's dead. Isn't he butts that isn't he dead Ed Harris. He's in this movie. I don't know if somebody's killed him in the last few days or anything. Oh okay all right. Oh I know you it is okay. The Bald headed guy okay yeah yeah exactly I think he's just terrific and everything he's in he was in. He's in that T._v.. Show Westworld <hes> anybody and most people know who had harasses just google <hes> but I was. I was compelled by you know Tom. Just SORTA traipsing around in this thing is flying his jets. He's still trying look like the old steadily dude and <hes> he's he's had a little face work on like he's had a little cosmetic surgery there and got thinking to myself whatever became of Kelly mcgillis and you know what I did. I googled Kelly mcgillis his love interest from top gun one twenty nineteen and I don't know that I would I mean I expect everybody to age. Shit happens. It happens to us. All I look like garbage compared to be hot still wouldn't she oh. I don't think I've ever had an experience like this gym. Googling Kelly mcgillis has changed me profoundly from this day forward award is she hot and you put me on the spot right. Now you know where you put me. Let's get to our web poll today. On June twenty eighth Chris Kelly left the Ottawa senators. The reason that the club gave at least to the media was it was a deal so he could spend more time of this family three weeks later. I guess he spent enough time with the family dummy took. It took a job today with a rival Boston bruins. We asked people what they are read was on. This and here are some of the tweets we got <hes> Greg Reagan. Ottawa rights seemed like the dysfunction in drammen. This organization is getting worse. <hes> low key Chris Kelly said enough of this. We got palladium drive. Maybe just took a job of the Bruins snow big thing Carson really in different. He played for both teams. Perhaps they gave him the best fit for what will make him happy to more here. Karski on the sends coaching change in a new direction for the team. I don't believe he wanted to leave for the new coaching. Staff might have limited his chances of grow- growing role he took the high road. It didn't blame the team classy move which nothing but the best and timpee it was why everyone leaves Eugene Melnik Yeah you gotta you have to figure out man you. This is your mission Steve. You've got to figure out why people but don't like being with that team. I get the obvious rate with the owner and all that ship but would this guy wouldn't have too much to deal with the owner right you got your salary is a coach right. You'RE GONNA you're going to hang with the coaches. GotTa be. The coach got rid of. Don't you think or why are people leaving that I mean it's happening at every level and there's certainly reasons for it but certainly you know a guy who <hes> you know get a chance to be an assistant coach for a few games on the bench with Mark Crawford at the end of last season liked it. Naughty might be part of the plan then D._J.. Smith comes in and obviously he's going to bring in his own guys and maybe that was the bottom line that it was a case of okay. <hes> Chris Kelly's not really part of the equation but that is also okay. That's the coaching staff is not that you went to Boston to become a coach. He just took some other. You Know Front Office player Personnel Job <hes> I'm sure the sense if they wanted to could have found something for Chris Kelly because he's bright right. He's well regarded. He's popular with a fan base but a lot of people just think that now we don't need more people to pay. We don't need more salaried guys in this team. <hes> will let them walk and we'll paint it. This way may wanted to spend more time with the family family yeah on the other hand assistant coach or potentially an assistant coach leaving team and going to another team up in the end. It's like who cares so he had a falling out with someone or the he's only in us. I listen and I don't want to dismiss the quality and the talent of assistant coaches but not that big a deal Steve when I think about Oh no it's not it's it's a more about the attitude in the constantly spinning things. It's not just that this mass exodus continues to occur is now gone to a point where these explanations that they're giving for these exits. No one's buying them anymore and what's more the way this thing went down. Nobody bought it on the day. It was June twenty eighth. They said okay wants spend more time in the family. Family and a lot of people were myself included skeptical that was the real reason and here we are three weeks later and well. I guess he spent enough time with the family because he's going to be with the Boston bruins now and so people are I think are not just tired of the lack of spending what you need to spend to be considered even remotely in contention in this thing but it's all the spin-doctoring that they continue to do when we all know that the reason they do the things ninety percent at the time is because <hes> the owner wants to save money right. So when is someone going to <hes> when someone's going to be smart enough to know that you make you have a press conference with your hockey team okay and you're you're. You've got to announce announced that you're getting rid of an assistant coach okay. Only you know why okay. Only you know why I've I hate the guy he's a douchebag. I want him off my staff and I don't want him anymore. Now you can't say that okay. You can't say that so they oh come on and say the teams take different directions. We wish him all the best he was fantastic here. The fans liked them but things change and <hes> we wish him all the best of luck to move on so what happens with that is exactly what this this reaction that you're doing now. His fans are going. The reason they left is because he hates Eugene Melik. He's a he's a terrible guy. You know the falling out hearing hearing here the other the they should they they should just come forward Steve Right away in the press conference ago. We don't see eye-to-eye. Just you know you don't have to bury the guy you don't have to bury you. Don't have to to kill him on a bunch of Shit. Just come and say. I don't want the guy part of the deal okay we don't we wish him lock and I don't WanNa part of our staff. Now that would be if they did that Jimmy if they did that. I it would be like Hallelujah in the starting to get it. Just just everyone knows it's GonNa come out. For whatever reason he's you know sums up here. He went to another team in two or three weeks. It happens all day long. People get traded coaches. Get fired owners. You know owners. Get rid of guys owners piss off the fence that happens all the time you know. Ottawa's got one of the most educated fan bases in the in the league. All the Canadian fan bases are extremely well educated like this people litter season ticket holders. That probably are qualified to be N._H._l.. Head coaches we are bonkers in this country as we all know for the sport of hockey and for some reason this organization seems to continue to treat everybody like they're just new to the game that they've just has become N._H._l.. Fans fairly recently they can they can see the bullshit a mile away so right right the organizations at a point where they say they basically through their actions even though they haven't said as much they're saying we want to spend the minimum minimum amount that we can so there were still invited to play in. This league called the N._H._l.. This is how we WANNA do it. When a bill with kids we want to draft but we're not going to be in contention for free agents nor will we keep our free agents? This is how we've chosen to do our business. I think at this stage of the game that's how they should be talking and not start not talking about they say with Chris Kelly leaves you to say you know what <hes> D._J.. Didn't like a much and as far as the front office goes <hes>. We feel like we're good to go. We've got enough guys. We don't want him. You know like all that stuff. It sounds course but it it's what it's what Fans WanNa hear. Now just tells the truth now like stop us. Here's what they have to do so this thing there's a little falling out because the guy quits says. He needs time with his family and he goes and gets hired three weeks later. So something's up okay something's up and then the team just to rehash the team comes forward and goes wishing luck bub-bubba by everyone's got bullshit like you say that's bullshit. Okay sponsors Steve Okay guys who endorse Athletes Weights Nike for example right huge huge endorse a huge hundred million dollar deal they did with Tiger Woods and Michelle we when she came along and all these other guys okay <hes> Nike is all about winning. Okay Nike Nike is about a winning. That's it okay so they signed the best. The best people in the World Michael Jordan Right Nike Tiger Woods Nike Brooks Kepco Nike <hes> bunch other guys so what happens is Tiger Goes Bananas Okay Taegu's bananas and starts knocking down girls like he knocks down pins okay he. He's doing it left right and center okay Nike comes forward and says like like all the sponsors when these guys get into trouble they ago that this is not who we characterize ourselves as okay we as a company don't character their end of story and if I can story they come out to go. This guy's not part of our deal whether we're not we're not being part of him anymore. We're at all and there'd be nothing wrong if a hockey team just came forward and said you know what the guy not even listen to me okay. I'm a coach. The guy didn't it was to Lippi had all the fucking answers and we got rid of them so someone else can have right it would be it would be coaching staff. I could feel it right now. We go John Team. I would watch that that'd be the best that would be the best reality television ever. Jim Jerome who kind of knows a little bit about everything rolling in there and just trying to running N._H._l.. Franchise behind the bench talking to the rafts. Oh my God that would be the Best Reality T._v.. Ever you'll be happy to know Steve.

Francis and here's my theory of course things didn't go very well for Ron Francis as <hes> as the guy running the show with the Carolina hurricanes but my here's my deal though I'm thinking to myself because I looked up Ron Francis and the first thing I saw was him as a Hartford wailer and those great all-whaler uniforms so you get the greatest Hartford whalers ever getting the G._M.. gig with Seattle where whale citing is very common and Seattle still hasn't decided on what their uniform nickname will be Bam the Seattle whalers. What do you think you're starting to really lack of imagination? Thank you come on mother's uniforms uniforms. I want the Seattle trailers Ron fats. Is The G._M._C. Okay.

The Carolina Hurricanes would certainly care I know and they still where the whalers shooter they were. The whalers Jersey at least one time this year is there as their thirds and lots of Hartford Wheeler fans were pissed off about that is not going to happen but I just find that out there but <hes> yeah I mean Ron. Scientists is a good choice I think because is that is a class a guy and his leadership abilities were one of the things they loved you. Go back to his playing career. <hes> just unbelievable stats hall of fame career more than a point a game second in history in assists behind Wayne Gretzky fifth and points <hes> but it was more the fact that he was voted captain by three different teams in fourteen of his twenty three years got it a twenty one and so that kind of leadership is always going to be attractive of two executives. If you want to name okay before we get to that I I agree the guys. He's a governor right. He was a gun her longtime. GotTa be in the Hall of fame as he ron. Francis must be must be in the hall of fame. If you want Seattle Seattle to adopt the name whaler Steve Going to change the name or whatever you have to pick the name and you want it because he played in fucking Hartford Way.

Coronavirus Crash? Do's and Don'ts from Recession Veterans Joe Asamoah and Steve Rozenberg

"This is real estate rookie. Show number three. We'd actually I've seen the most wealth created I've I've seen more millionaires and more wealth created during the economic downturn of two thousand eight timeframe than I have ever in Washington. We'll talk about that. They talk about all the losers that money they don't talk about people that actually took action and actually capitalized on it by being smart and educated to being ready to move. I'm Ashleigh care and I'm here with leaping may who is out in Daytona Beach Florida me and my wife decided to come out here and take a break man. There's just so much going on in the world and just recently did two properties at the same time something. I typically don't do you know just been real stressed and you know my wife was get out. Let's try to get away from everything. Let's try to really take a breath if you will to kind of get our thoughts together. So yeah we're out here in. Daytona enjoying a little sun on. What about you actually are you doing? I Love The B. Two B. O. Behind you it's just beautiful for anyone watching actually just a red curtain you first of all look because I really. I thought it was really important. What we're doing today right so really excited but yeah I'm in my mother in Law's like little storage shed or whatever but actually. How's everything going? North School was canceled for my son. He's really excited but his teachers Ben. Great we're actually going to learning through a facebook group so he'll be able to interact with his classmates on there and his teacher will be a little home schooling. It's cancelled until the end of April. Absolutely you know and speaking of facebook groups just want to give a big shout out to our rookie real estate facebook group. We have a thousand followers on there. And you know we're really like we said earlier. We really want to build a community of rookies and kind of gathered together to make sure that we can get through everything upturns and downturns together so shout out to that definitely going leave comments questions if you have anything that you WanNa talk about and speaking of you know typically this show we do real estate rookie interviews where they have one or two deals or a couple that way. We can kind of connect with each other but day. We actually decided to bring into professionals to giants. If you will who have been through together they. I think they've been through like thirty or forty years of experience of going through ups and downs. You know different ways to do real estate and business. You know. We have Today we have JOA SAMOA and Steve Rosenberg One. I think is Ashley's mentor directly. Yes I trick Steve to mentoring me. So He's mentoring me for a couple of weeks and I'm happy to have him and Joe on the show today because what we're doing is we're having them break down for us make. How should we prepare plan if there is going to be a downturn and they give some really great advice not only on your real estate investments if you should get into the market or you know your personal finances How to handle that? They give a really great tip at the. Yeah I agree Steven Joe. Both give great nuggets. They're professionals in this field like I said they're not rookies. It professionals who've been through downturns upturns they tell you how to strategize for it. How to collectively have your debt in one place or your cash reserves. They go into the questions that I think has rookies. We all want to know which is how do I properly prepare for what may or may not come right and I think preparation is very important in both Joe and Steve Talk about mindset. They talk about money. They talk about planning. I could go on and on and on the podcast is really going to be amazing. Flea Bay myself. We haven't gone through a downturn in the market either as real estate investor so we found a ton of value in this offense. Owed we hope that you guys to solve. Let's bring him on. Welcome Steve and Joe to the real estate rookie podcast. We are very excited to have you guys today and talk about some recession planning chauvinist. Ashley appreciate it thanks. Actually thanks guys. Early appreciates the honor to be here now. Thank you so much guys for coming out and talking to us some really important topics that are going on right now and we. Kinda WANNA clear the effort people who have been through a situation like this and educate some of us newbie rookie guys. Who are just trying to walk through this and figure this all out if you guys wouldn't mind introducing yourselves real quick. Let's start with Steve who you are what you do if you don't mind their brother and then we'll skip over to Joe. So Steve Rosenberg. I live in Houston Texas. I owned a property management company. We're at about a thousand properties. All over Texas recently sold that to a larger company. Mine Property Management which is in about sixteen regions about close to about ten thousand properties. So I I work with them now is the VP of investor education. I've owned houses apartments single family flips. Wholesales you name it. The way that I got into real estate actually was a prior disaster. Which was nine eleven? And that's actually what got me into the whole real estate world since then I've done a lot of pivots. I guess you could say in this industry by having a lot of disasters whether it was the SARS the oil two thousand eight recession Hurricane Harvey Hurricane Ike. You name it. And I'd probably weathered it either as a owner of a management company or as an investor of my own assets fortunately or unfortunately disasters. Some pretty familiar with it. Sounds like you've definitely been through some things La okay. Well okay shots do my name's Joseph Asamoah people call me Joe here based in the Washington. Dc Area and invested in real estate for about thirty two years now and I've been through full real estate cycles and Essentially First House I bought which is eighty seven. It was a complete disaster. Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. I had the tenants from Hell every scenario that you hate to experience I went through it so with that said it. Does I somehow whether that stole and boy another one? I did? A house occupied. That was before the House that term became known but I did a House I bought a house rented Spaces out kept saving money. Another one another one just kept on going until two thousand three when my income from rental properties equalled what I made for my job so I was able to leave that job and essentially being a real estate full-time since then so I kinda focus primarily on the buying. Hold the subset being the Burr strategy. So I buy houses. Renton fix them up. You're renting them out and re-financing just keep going so that's what I do. I love this business I think the first cycle the first cycle I went through was the early nineties. I went through that one. Then there's another one in the nineties. There's another one around two thousand and one area DOT COM BOOM BUST. And then they obviously those the two thousand seven two thousand eight two thousand nine downturns. Ibm through four those cycles. I go pretty good idea how they play out. Are they shake out? What works what doesn't work and fortunately they will survive all those things. Hopefully I'll be able to share some of my experiences with the audience today. I think it's safe to say that you both have seen a lot of people go broke and a lot of people get rich from this. Is that correct exactly? Yeah I've noticed that in the cycles that I've been as joe could probably test. There's a lot of mini-cycles that you as well that probably don't get as much you know. They may be micro in your city or something. But being a contrarian investor meaning going in when other people are running away and finding those opportunities if you're educated and you know what you're doing and what your focus is that's actually wind wealth is accelerated and that is actually having the education and being ready to move when it's time to move is when actually I've seen the most wealth created. I've I've seen more millionaires and more wealth created during the economic downturn of two thousand eight time frame than I have ever in a lot of people talk about that. They talk about all the loser that lost money. They don't talk about people that actually took action and actually capitalized on it by being smart and educated and being ready to move so yeah well let me. Chime in there Steve. I mean that's that's an interesting conversation interesting topic because I feel like a lot of our listeners. Are going to want you to elaborate on that as in what does it look like one to be smart investor. And what are you look for in the markets to take advantage of? Obviously I'm not talking about taking advantage of people taking advantage of the situation. So what does that look like for you? Steve and Joe if you don't mind chiming in after that. What does that look like for you as well? Well my experience and all this and real estate and understand real estate's not my first love. It's not the first thing I ever wanted to do. Being an airline pilot was and nine eleven changed that. But what I've learned about flying planes and being a pilot is that you always have to have your focus. And you gotTa have your end goal. And no matter what happens during the duration of a flight whether it's an emergency or whatever you still have to fly the plane and you've got to get to your destination and a Lotta people lose sight of that because they get all of the emotional fear. Seventy percent of what goes through. Our brain is negative. So let that negative self-talk derail them from their goal. Lotta Times 'cause they're why is not strong enough so they start listening to other people they start kind of agreeing all of a sudden mentally with what other people are saying whether it's the news or whatever and they start derailing their path thinking. Maybe this isn't the right path that I'm on. And the people that are successful are the ones that know where they're going. They know they're identical goal. A destination whether it's amount of cash flow or asset control or whatever that is and what happens is those are the ones that stay true to their course now. They make pin it. If you're in a buying market it's flipping. You may have to do a buy and hold or vice versa. But knowing where you're going and having the education like just all myself I know how to flip properties on how to wholesale properties. I know how to Rehab Them. I know how to set up structures to have hundreds of thousands of properties under scale. I know how to do all those things so all those things are in my arsenal. As long as it's it's like in my toolbox right so as long as I'm going on my path when something happens I just look into my toolbox because I have the education I. I'm going to pick up that tool now because it's no longer a hammer now. A saw and now start cutting so my point is if you're a new investor and you're getting involved in this world what you need to think about is how do. I continue to stay on the path and not let fear anxiety creep into my head and just know that as joe can attest. I'm sure these are cycles. That they're gonNA come and they're going to go and no matter what we say no matter what we do. We cannot control the outside environment. All's we can do is control where we're going in the path that runs like a river running behind your house. You can't stop that water. You may redirect it. You can never stop the flow of the water. It's GonNa keep flowing in the economies and things like this like Joe's been through and you guys and everyone else watching you go through times that you're GONNA question and you're GonNa have that self-doubt creeping in as long as you're focused on what you're doing and you have your the proverbial eye on the prize and you know where you're going it's data the numbers dictate and if you looked at the numbers right now and if you looked at real estate prices coming down and people not able to sell that's data that would be telling me maybe it's time to start by like maybe it just did a pivot and it's time to start going in because the data is telling me information and again. I I I'll just go back to flying when you're flying in the airplane and you're in bad weather your instruments or what's telling you it's not what I think I'm doing or my body think's GonNa turn instruments. You're telling me I'm going straight. I've got to trust the instruments. No matter what is going on in my head I showed you agree with that or is that yeah I agree. I agree totally. Let me add to that. I'm not the first one to go three cycles. These not the first one to go through cycles. I'm not going to be the last person to go through cycles. One of the biggest suggestions and tips I would give to somebody starting. Is You need to find out in your market successful estate investors who are doing the strategy that you're doing who weathered that cycle or cycles prior. What did they do that? Differentiated them from all the others. You Know How comes? They were successful while others went bankrupt. What did they do? What systems do they have in place? What kind of relationships do they have? What kind of metrics they measuring? I mean these are season people and I'm not just talking about investors who invested at that time because there are lots of them you want to find those successful ones okay and there's not many but they're all out there whether it be a successful real estate agents whether be six most successful wholesaler a successful rehab a successful by holding VESTA. They're out there you'll market. You need to seek those people out and find out with them. What did they do that? The others did not do to try these people now. Incentivize them to help you okay. And you learn from their experiences and therefore you'll be able to successful because when the market changes you really find out who knows what they're doing and who doesn't because it's easy to make money when the tide is rising. Is You know so you seek those people out of work with them and hopefully you can ride out the storm a lot more efficiently. That seems to be a common mistake. That people make is they only focus on the horror stories. The the Falcons and not go to the successful people who made thorough. Because that's what's emphasized in the media. The News is how people lost homes. How real estate investing failed. And your point and so on is that you should seek out the people who made it through. You know these cycles and good advice from them. And just like Steve Stat. Stay on your own path and stay on your way and go for that outcome. I WANNA touch base on the corona virus right now. We don't know what will happen. But we could be leading into another cycle and I wanted to talk about what you guys are doing to prepare or this because that is a very common question for myself Lee Bay in other investors out there is what should be do to prepare ourselves if you know. Real estate is going to crash in the Stock Market. Continues to crash will. What are you guys doing to prepare yourself for that? Well I can tell you personally what you know some of the things that I again. I take a lot of my knowledge history from my career being an airline pilot. And what are the things that were taught? That's ingrained in our heads from Boeing and from other people as it when you have a disaster when you have an emergency going on the first thing you do is take a breath and just sit down and just calm down. That's number one number calm down. I mean those cynical going on in the drama use an engine on takeoff which is the most critical time. When you're fighting a large any kind of playing really. The first thing you do is just take a breath and you fly the plane okay. You don't pay attention to what anything is telling you. You Fly the plane. The same thing I would say relate here the first thing you gotta do is you got to assess the situation and take a breath and step back for a second. Because this isn't going to be instantaneous. You know one thing that Joe had mentioned earlier that I just like to say is that you can learn a lot by looking to see what happened with people that did fail. And if you do that you can learn what not to do if you look at it from a lesson point of view when an accident happens whether it's a car accident or plane accident or anything. There are thirteen things that attribute statistically to that accident. So there's thirteen things that happen now with a plane crashing. Yeah it hitting the hill. Was the accident right. The Corona virus and all these people going bankrupt and losing. Everything is the result. But there's things that lead up to that crash. They caused that to happen and the same thing like I said you're asking how to prepare. It's not one big thing. It's a bunch of little things that I think you have to do. Meaning you've gotTa make sure that your cash reserves are it correct number one. I would say you've got to make sure that you are looking like Wayne Gretzky. You're not looking where the PUCK is. You're looking to where the PUCK is going. Where's this going? And what is the result? That's going to happen of this. Am I looking to expand my portfolio and my looking to make a move as a result of this or my looking to hunker down and do what I need to do to save what I have your cash reserves and your thought process who you hang around with those things will tell you that so what? I'm doing right now as you know. This is so. It's like a brand new sprained ankle. It's so fresh you have to assess the damages before you can start making a move. I think people that are jumping in and making a move without a plan right now. They could be contributing to the disaster. And you know you see a lot of people talking at all you know. It's like Joe had mentioned the DOT com. I remember getting in a taxi cab in New York in two thousand in this taxi. Cab driver was giving me stock advice. And I'm thinking this probably a bad song corona virus in everyone's expert. Everyone everyone is a biologist telling you all the problems you know in Hurricane Harvey. Everybody became a power grid expert. Everyone was telling you when the bridge coming on filter that noise. And you gotta ask yourself okay. What what's going on in? What do I want as a result of this situation? Let Me Chime in here real quick. I keep hearing the same thing from you guys in that. This is an emotional thing. Steve said step back and take a breath. Joe earlier was talking a little bit about systems and it seems like nothing out of either one of you have said has had anything to do with emotion so I love that because I want our listeners to hone in that these two professionals I said nothing about making decisions on emotion or selling emotion or buying on emotion. Both of them have said that. You need to analyze. What's going on structure yourself before you jump in Let me just quickly wrap up on the previous question that you had about. What am I doing now? I do a lot of buying holds and as a buy and hold you take a long-term view. You didn't get really too caught up in the what's happening today. What's happening tomorrow? Because I'm taking a five ten fifteen twenty view old things a cycles especially in certain markets tend to appreciate real estate obviously tends to appreciate more than others in different markets. So the idea is that yes you go through. Some short term blips but the overall trend is up. So what I do what? I'm doing to answer your question specifically is whenever I buy a house. I made sure that I have multiple exit strategies. Okay so I have a plan a and plan B. so that way if plan A. Doesn't work I can always pivot to plan B. and the problem with a lot of people had in the past. Is that all they had was a plan a safe. Buy a house to flip. The numbers didn't support to buy hold or if they do in a buy and hold. The numbers didn't support the flip. Just in case you have to sell it. And so they kind of locked into one strategy and when the market shifts then you don't really have a whole lot of options available. Do both you liked to have your property. Be able to both exactly. It has to support at least two strategies. Exit Strategies are otherwise. I'm not buying it. I love that I've never heard that's amazing. I've never done that because you certainly yourself up. Because when the market shifts everything changes I think is cited an example during the last big pockets interview. I had which was I used to live in a house. We went through a downturn in Washington. Dc and nineties for example and it was hard to sell a house and so people who couldn't sell they had really two choices to reduce the price but because they bought high when the market was strong they couldn't reduce it enough in order to make a profit so if they had to reduce their price they made a loss. Okay and those people who didn't WANNA make a loss they had to rent okay so now the regular buying whole guys are now competing with flippers. Who otherwise couldn't sell their properties. They had a better quality product. They had all the bells and whistles that for instance a new renovation would have so if you had a an average product you're now compete with an a higher end product with somebody who under normal circumstances you'll never compete against so all of the point. Is that the mawkish. Is the competition shifts expectations change and it's just a whole nother world. That's why getting back to the whole thing. There are people out here who've been through this and they can share with you their experiences through that time. Which how'd you find these people? They're out there. I mean you have to do a little bit of research you can go to real estate. Investor Association is useless. People who've been around for a long time a little another creative way is do some research in your local market for articles publications whereby some names come out. Okay if you do your research if you go to albanisation where it's sort of people have been around for a while tend to congregate you can find these people who've been around for a little while who've been through these cycles before and it just takes a little bit more research because most people enter a market when the market is going well. Okay and you know. They tend to exit when the market turns that there are a few people out there who turns to ride out these storms for multiple cycles. It just takes a bit more research to actually locate these people. But they're out there. It's definitely worth the time to explore and to research and find these people because a gold mine of information which they can share with you which will allow you to Kinda ride this on a lot. More efficiently the seems to be a common theme on episodes. We've done so far in the people we've interviewed is go to meet up sir go to real estate meet ups and not work in meet those professionals or meet people who can recommend those professionals to you In your so you can go to bigger pockets DOT COM FORWARD EVENTS. If you want to find meet up in your area too. There's a lot posted every day. The I I really. I really liked the Advice on how to find a professional. Joe It's really easy to say. Hey guys just get in the right mindset and and make sure that you you know you're not selling or buying you know make sure that your structuring. What's going on but I know that our listeners always ask for a little bit more than that. So what would you tell our listeners? Steve as to how to get in the right mindset to where like like the example. You said you know the Puck is where it's going. How do I get in that mindset versus? Oh my gosh. I have to sell everything. Because we're taking you know what do you think? Well first of all I think again you gotta look at the facts and the facts are just out of the gate when the economy goes bad and people as sad as it is when people lose their houses. What happens to them? They don't dissolve and turn into sugar. Melt away they become renters so if your strategy is not buying hold maybe that's the time that you look and say you know what maybe this is going to become a bind hold because there's more renters in the market and. I'm sure Joe can say the same when I was in. Two Thousand and eight in the economy taint my rents went up. I actually had a higher profit margin because there was more renters in the market that needed a place to rent. Now I was in the lower to middle of the road. You're on the higher end of rentals. Then obviously you may be affected but you know people could our upside or downside and so it just depends on where you are and what your strategy is so to me. You people think about that because they're running off of the emotions of what everyone's telling them that the economy's bad but if you looked at the logic in the logic says wait a second. These people lose their houses. What happens to them now? Well they become renters I wonder whose house they're gonNA rent. I've got a flip. I can't flip it. Maybe I should make a renter out of this property. And maybe it's a short term. Maybe it's a one year two year play and then I can change again. So that's again that's staying on the path of your direction of your goal but it's also knowing when to pivot and being smart enough to look at everything around you and not having that tunnel vision you mentioned about the mindset that that's a that's a pretty deep cavernous conversation but you know. I think the biggest challenge a lot of people that have the get into this is they. Don't sharpen that mental acts before they swing it meaning. They don't take the time to educate themselves to understand that they are running a business that businesses profit loss. There's laws or regulations. There's a lot of things to understand in if you started running the business. There's nowhere in a business. It says a couple of things. There's nowhere that says that you're going to run it off of emotions right. There's no emotional gas. That's going to help help that number one number two. There's nothing that says it you're GONNA do it all yourself. You'RE GONNA make all the decisions yourself. You're going to do everything on your own. That is not a business. That's a job now. There's nothing wrong with a job but understand that when you are getting into this in you're trying to scale probably like most people. Are you running? A business. Businesses run on the backbone of systems policies procedures instructor. And you say those three again. I want to make sure our listeners. Don't lose that though. Its policies procedures and it structure and when you are running your business that is the definition and the we'll call it the spinal cord of Your Business and so again that is not where emotions come into play. This is where you have to start thinking like the owner of a business and the other thing. I like to add to what Steve was saying about. I do buying holds to buy and hold. Yes when the market goes down you know there are more renters out there but the success to buy and hold is to minimize turnover which is to have zero people leaving once they're in your house okay. Because every time somebody leaves the house is vacant. You gotTA clean up again. You advertise again. You GotTa do all that kind of stuff so all that cash flow that you otherwise would have made gets wiped out okay and therefore you make no money okay. I don't care what anybody says. If you can't manage that turnover and vacancy expenses. You make no money so the key is not so much well. I'm just GonNa read my house. No you have certain things in place to be able to attract the kind of people who are going to stay in your house you attract the kind of people. They're going to pay the rent attract the kind of people that are pleasant to deal with a track. The people that can stay a long time. Okay because when the markets state of turmoil is just ebbs and flow people going in and people are going out people's financial situations very sort of fluid Yes you've got a renter three months for now. They could lose their job. Which means that you have an income coming in which means that you may have to. These people may have to go through that whole cycle again. So you know. Focus on minimizing turnover focus on customer satisfaction Co. focus on making. Sure your tennis happy. So they don't leave and therefore the cashier that you make stays in your pocket so he's not just as simple as well. I'll just read my house. It's a lot more to it than that. That's what I found anyway and To be able to ride out this storm for three four five years you know to win. The market turns out because by is an excellent strategy during turmoil. But it's not as simple as well okay. I've just got a house which I couldn't sleep and therefore let me rent okay. Because I'm sure Steve. Can Tell you attended from hell which I'm sure many of them got if you guys are watching a video you gotta see Steve Tenets. His head isn't exactly hell is not a pretty sight. Says Okay about the visit by all he takes his telehealth a you could say. I'm Joseph Out. Yeah just just Kinda commenting on that you know and again. This goes back to what I said earlier. I in the I've been educated enough in all of these and I think what's important and Joe. You said it very eloquently and I'll just reiterate having a buy and hold is a business. Having a flip is a business. These are all separate businesses that you have to treat them as businesses so if you all of a sudden say hey. I can't flip this. I think I'M GONNA go ahead rent it. I would say what's the business model. What's the ORG Chart? What are the policies? What are the procedures you don't just jump in and do it because that's when people fail and I know because I was one of those people that had already forty houses that I had no idea what I was doing? And so you've gotTa have the education. And that's why I'm a big proponent of you know really educating yourself before you start doing stuff you know as entrepreneurs biggest reasons we fail is not because we're not working hard is because we don't have the plan and we don't think things out correctly and we just ready shoot aim in then we go That house didn't work. Let me fit it into another strategy. Because you didn't really think about like to me. The property you buy is the tactic. I you gotTa have the goal. Then you gotTA HAVE THE STRATEGY. Then the tactic the actual asset is the last piece of the puzzle. Most people never even think of that business structure the exit deano Jo said. He's got to exit strategies if he needs them that's part of his business model so for me. I could sit there and say well. I'm going to flip and okay. If this doesn't flip I've got the education to pull out the manual and says okay. Now this is the buy and hold. What's the strategy for this and start working through you? Don't just start it as early because as Joe said that's when you get the bad resident or you ever horror stories happen. Yeah the the thing is I would add to that and say I see things a little differently. Okay in the sense that the asset is is the property but the real assets you know is the tenant okay. It's Kinda Kinda counter intuitive here. I in this market where we are for example in the Washington. Dc area so it's it's a high price market so you know houses five six hundred seven hundred thousands on a big deal. They're all over the place. Okay so you are entrusting somebody okay to protect your five six seven hundred thousand dollar asset okay. That person can destroy your asset very easily. Oh they can really make the asset from five hundred to seven to eight hundred to a million dollars if they stay a long time and take care of it. Okay so I see the tenant. A nurturing that relate well I was making sure you find the right tenant and their nurturing that relationship search that they protect your asset nurturing that relationship search that they pay the rent nurturing that relationship whereby creates a win win scenario where it's in their interest. Okay to take care of your interest okay. So it's both the the real property. Assets is important but I think a lot of buying investors don't realize the importance of the asset being the tenant and protect a nurturing. That relationship can protect your real asset. That's interesting Joe. Think that's a great point. Yeah a lot of people like to look at the tenant like a bank looks at you. You're you're nobody survey exactly to see if I hear from you and find my money okay. It's interesting just says that though because I'm I think I might be a little bit on the fence with my forty plus tenants. I've never met attendant. That cares for my property as much as I do. I don't care how much sugar them I don't care how much I see them by them. Whatever I I've never had attended take care of my property as much as I do so I treat even my tenants as a business. I'm to have to change my mindset. Then Joe and I'm going to have learned because I've like I said I haven't had to learn from Joe. I gotta read his note. Yeah well I mean see. The screening is the key okay because most markets is easy to get on. Your House is a lot more difficult to get him out once they're in and so how thoroughly you screen and what type of tenant you're looking for. Because they're out there. I mean I don't WanNa go through that whole discussion but I have five ten fifteen twenty tenants my three years. Let me get some of those. Longest does forty three years on a fifteen year mortgage on fifteen year mortgage. Okay think about that one. There's literally pay for this House. And they are happy to be there. They are eternally grateful that I gave them the opportunity to live in this House that that is not an accident. Okay that's what Steve says it's a system. Okay it's it's it's a business and then realize okay if it's a business and then the people that provide you income or your customers I e. You're telling the people that you don't want to see what I needed yards and Steve's at the same time you know the mistakes the Book On mistakes definitely a ten twenty years then a common theme in this discussion so far is okay looking at the failures and don't be afraid because other people have failed in. That's that means you're not going to jump into it. But what learn from them and take those lessons and I want to talk about to a couple of things that you both kind of mentioned was maybe a good strategy for new investor that wants to get started out. Even though we might be headed into a another downturn is that made you find a buy and hold maybe affordable housing and. Maybe it's not right next to new development where these flippers night might not be able to sell these properties so that could be something you could look into but I wanNA go on to a couple of questions we have from listeners who actually have Sunesson voicemails. We call this the rookie. Requests LINE MEAN. Anyone listening wants to call in and leave a message. The number is one eight eight eight five rookie. And you can call in and leave a question and we might play an episode Ashley Way. My Name's Shannon from Tampa Florida on the way into work. This morning I listened to the bigger pockets. Podcast episode two fifty Grand Cordona talks about the importance of having adequate reserves to weather. Unexpected events. Your guests as an investor. How much focus do you give? Cash reserves versus lines of credit to help prepare for the future market correction. Thank you yeah. I mean what happens in a down. Market is essentially credit markets Titan toddler to get Loans if you do have credit lines Sometimes the bank rein them in a cold. You or close them out okay. Credit is just more difficult to get so in preparation for that. Yes you want to have cash reserves. You know you want to be able to start paying down some debts if you can you want to even have strategies whereby you can save money for example the B? What do you call that being the House Strategy and Whereby you can reduce your expenses so you can have some cash reserves. That's the Milwaukee. If you've got equity in properties now is the time to sort of apply for lines of credits and have them available. Okay so that when the market does turn you have access to cash and you're able to take advantage of opportunities that exists which other people cannot because they have the resources available. Joe Do you WanNa mention real quick. What the difference between a line of Credit and mortgages and why people should go for a line of credit instead of increasing their mortgage question. Yeah good one Soviet-era you buy a house at level. Let's say one hundred thousand dollars okay. And then overtime That asset increase in value. Let's say to what one hundred fifty thousand okay. So it's fifty thousand dollars worth of equity that is in that House. Occa- sitting there doing nothing for the most part okay so as an investor who foresees the market's turning or changing and while the market is still pretty decent in your area you can apply for a line of credit. Okay you can go to a bank and you can tap into equity the fifty thousand dollars equity as available so you actually get a new mortgage per se. You get almost like a credit card access to cash based on the equity in the house. Okay if you don't use it it's GonNa cost you anything so it's just sitting there like a credit card. You have a credit limit as long as you. Don't use your credit card. You don't pay interest on the money is when you use that credit card. That's when you tap into the that's what you will pay interest on that money. Because that's that's what we call a line of credit similar to a credit card whereas new loan or a second or refinance. You'll get a brand new loan based on the value of the house. I strongly recommend lines of credit because it's sitting there available when opportunities arise as opposed to get in a new loan having money and we know what happens when you have money sitting around with no good place to go is disappeared. You got close. You go card so as long as you're disciplined. That's the key. Thing is savvy investors. We are disciplined. Because we're looking at the bigger picture. And therefore I strongly recommend Liza credit also having savings available for the opportunity that will exist in the new environment. Glenn New York assuming that goes on for a while. I've heard that they're safe in. Some countries is suspending rents. So that's the case. How will you be handling their? Rent's with your tenant. And how will it affect you in the long run thanks? Well it's not a rumor. It's true they are. They're actually or going eviction proceedings some of them. The courts are actually just shutting down and other ones. They're putting moratoriums on there but this kind of dovetails into what the last question was and what Joe was talking about. Is Everybody always here in? Good Times that everybody is so proud of the fact of how leveraged and how they've gotten a deal that's a one hundred percent no money out of pocket. One of the things I think is important for people to understand. Is The people that are doing deals with no money down and nothing out of pocket. The successful ones are the people that don't they have the money. They're just not using their money so the difference is a lot of people that are getting into this. They don't have the money to get involved into it so there looking for a no money down deal. I think that is a huge mistake. Because they're setting themselves up for disaster win times like this happened because they don't have the proper reserves. I can personally tell you about. I think it was about thirty five rental houses and put the wrong tenants. In right we had a thirty percent eviction rate. Our average tenant state eight months because they would leave and when they left they would take a lot of parting gifts with them like wiring electrical and all that kind of stuff and so what I learned at that time which they don't talk about in the books and they don't talk about the no money down. Is that if you don't have the money to replace that stuff. You've just put yourself in a very very bad position. So you're saying have the money use other people's money but if need be you have that reserve to get you through a situation absolutely and now it'd be part of Your Business Plan exactly so a lot of people are like. Oh I don't know what I'm GONNA do. I can't go two months without rent to me. It's like okay. Well that is not a sound business plan and you probably need to rethink your business model. You may have to lose some properties and cut out some cancer of your of your portfolio. Because you can't sustain it because you made a bad decision as CEO of Your Business and so what you have to do is this is like I said just because you can do a deal. No money down. Doesn't mean that you do it because that's your only option. That is just part of the tools in your toolbox and those sleepless nights. Like I had when you're trying to figure out how you'RE GONNA pay all these mortgages is not a very good feeling that I wouldn't wish upon anyone that you've got to set yourself up for the what. If and worst case scenario like the guy from New York said man. What if this goes three months? Well personally I'm fine if that happens with my portfolio because I pre planned it and so that's what's so important about I keep saying like you gotta sharpen that mental acts. You really got to think this through in best case scenario. Because that's what we all do right. We always think what's the best thing to happen. I'M GONNA make tons of cash flow. Tenants are going to stay like Joe for forty plus years right. Joe's just got it down to a science. Joseph people you learn from C. You sit there and go man. I can't get ten state passed a year. Many see what Joe's doing let me let me exactly and so just kind of going back to two. This is all about setting yourself up correctly. Or what if best case scenario but also what if worst case scenario and can I say something? Which may summit many people may not agree with? But I'll say it anyway and that is people should consider the section eight program. The reason why I say that is that it wants you. Figure it out and it's not that difficult to figure out. Most of your income. Your rent is is pretty much guaranteed. Okay so ask. Let's say the ranch's two thousand dollars let's say and the tennis portion is five hundred dollars okay and therefore the the housing authorities portion is the Delta which is fifteen hundred dollars so as long as that ten is in your Home Care Yoga and fifteen hundred dollars a month regardless and the tenants portion of the rent is based on that income so if their income goes down because for example they lose their jobs. Okay then that five hundred dollars a day pay may get reduced from five hundred to two hundred which means that the housing authorities post you make from fifteen hundred to eighteen hundreds to plug the delta. It can't be a very recession resistant strategy. Then the key obviously is making sure you get the right tenant who's going to take care of Your House Pay Your Ramsey pleasant to deal with the state a long time but again that all stuff is a business Steve Sign is true. There's a business model where you can attract these folks who will take care of your house and you can have a situation whereby your income is coming in regardless and that's the beauty of the section eight program versus the market renters whereby its loses a job that unfortunately you man okay your rent and if you have a moratorium they have in New York. You may get your risk for ninety days. I'm sure are they going to have a moratorium on Citibank Requesting the mortgage payments or is it just the tennis? What do you think it's can I? Can I just ask something though in regards to what your eggs? I think this is very very important that people that may be thinking about section eight because I I did section eight for Longtime Housing Authority a lot of times and I'd like to hear your thoughts a lot of times when people go down the path of section eight. It's their last resort going. I can't get this rented I'm GonNa go section. They still never build up their reserves so all the sudden the government says hey. It's going to be three months till we get you back a you. What is going to be a couple of months? Rushed to get you the money or don't pass inspection of they're going. I don't have any money to hold. This reminds again. I section eight is great. But you've got to have it in your business plan and I go. You'll agree to have the reserves set up before so that if it does happen you okay. I can weather six months of no money. I'm going to get it back. It's GonNa it's GonNa come to me but we all know. The government is not the fastest processing depending on. You gotta be roughly. Yeah Yes yes that is true you dealing with the bureaucracy and you know which kind of moves a glacial pace. But that's where again the businesses the businesses that you develop relationships with people down to the Housing Authority whereby you know if your own situation like that then you got people on the inside you can kinda poisoning through Joe. If someone decides this is the path to go down. How would someone start to be a section eight landlord? There's not sixty. Why don't you are A my book? A giant as thanks Steve Okay. So how do you find section eight tenants if you want to start renting to them so first of all you have a house? Okay and I I will start off make you have a nice house quality house. Okay because I'm a I'm trying to attract a quality voucher hold or quality tenants. So you start off with the product. We have a decent product and indecent area. That's number one number. Two is once the product is ready. You then advertised and what I do. At least the house authorities in this area and most other areas they tend to have a a websites or lists where they advise will recommend that the whole. Goto to see what's out there. So you advertise your product in that list. Okay that makes sense or on the website Where they recommend the Voucher Tennis Goto. So you make sure you advertise there. And I on my adverts described the House on somewhere in the advert I say section eight welcome section eight welcome okay and because a lot of landlords are not welcoming of section eight voucher holders. And they'll come up all kinds of excuses not to accept them but I say welcome. And as a result of that. You tend to have a lot of applications. I the last House I had. I had I think twelve applications for this one house the one before that had twenty applications for this one house so you can get a lot of people who are looking for quality housing quality areas as a result of that. Because you have a lot of applications you can be very very thorough on your selection criteria. Okay you can be really really thorough on your screening. Search that you can weed out the one that's GonNa give you a hard time. You'RE GONNA give weed out the ones who's GONNA GIVE YOU HELL. You'RE GONNA weed out the ones that it's GonNa make your life miserable but you'll attract those people who are looking for an opportunity once in a lifetime opportunity to live in a nice house nice area and rent from a great landlord. It's a win win for them because they're in a great house in the gray area. It's a win win for me or you as a as a landlord because you have a pleasant tenant who is looking for. Who's living Nice House and then take care of the house to pay the rent and so it it's again. That's that's what I do to attract bees tenants who have vouchers once. You select that person. The kicks off the process terms of paperwork to the Housing Authority. And so on now I definitely understand that great advice guys. I'm in real quick questions actually for both you guys. It seems like during these times people take a hard look at their personal finances where they're gonNA spend where they're not gonNA spend any tips on managing money other than not just real estate debt but just in personal finances. Do you guys have any advice on that? Steve I'll let you take the reins and then Joe Mind chiming in. Yeah I think that you know. The the challenge with a lot of these things is when disasters happen or these perceived disastrous. I'll say happen. Is We start doing these self checks and we don't look at them until this happens and so I think that's the problem it's Kinda like you don't realize you're fat until you step on the scale on December thirty first single man. I didn't hit my goal. Well if you did it every week and you checked and did your you know whether it was your finances and you wanted to find out how your finances were doing her. You wanted to find out how you're eating and you wanted to find out anything that was going on if you did it constantly. And it's it's not a matter of these huge pivots. It's a matter of small corrections like the compound effect. You just do small things in small corrections and if you do that you'll be much more successful so I think that it's not something that you should do right now. I think it's something that you should do on a continual basis and always be monitoring to make sure that you're going towards your goal and you gotTa make sure that you know again. I just say I on the prize. And if you're if you're not it's Kinda shame on you and you should start doing this sometimes. This is the wakeup call. If you have a friend that has a heart attack now all of a sudden you're going to the doctor and you're doing this and you're doing that well. Shouldn't you be doing that everyday anyways? And be monitoring and eating healthy people. It's like people who look at their W. two or their tax return and say where did all that money goes and they just let another year pass in the same thing next you joe. I would love to to hear your tips you have. I would look at your expenses. Which which areas are the biggest expenses that you have which typically go into housing and transportation another big one if you can somehow reduce those because you want to have cash reserves available. You won't be able to make sure that any event of a downturn you're able to survive and track your expenses obviously there's things that you can do to increase income and looking to those things it could be a side. Hustle could be invested more properties. And things like that but also I think the important thing is to invest some time your education education in the sense that being ready being prepared being in the position such that you can actually take advantage of opportunities which that will occur in the next few months or whatever also you probably need to the other thing is that when the market does change it is more difficult to get access to financing so now is the time to prepare yourself to be in a good position to becoming bankable. Which is things like looking at your credit Making show that you understand what the the financial people are looking for in terms of mortgages and making sure that in a good position such that you could actually get the financing that you need when you need money. That's when people won't give it to you when you don't need the money that's when you should be getting in getting prepared for it. So this is the this is the time before it gets worse or whatever this is when you start taking stock and again it's it you know the data plant a tree is yesterday. The day starts shoring up your credit start. Getting things taken care of is today in. This is the time that you need to start looking everything saying okay like like Joe said how do I start cutting expenses? How do I start looking? More tractable to banks right and you start thinking of these things now so that you can be prepared so you get the lines of credit so that you're ready to go so that when you do see a deal that crosses your path you're able to execute you don't say man maybe now. I should talk to a mortgage broker. See if I can get a loan see if I get the deal. That's probably too late or the banks will don't you so the day you start. You've got to do a personal check. You've got to check it and see Kay how're my finances? What kind of health do a health check on yourself on your finances? M I D. Does anybody at the bank want to date. Or are they gonNA loaned me any money if the answer is no? It's okay. How do I become the person that will get money? And how do I get credits for that? I am ready to take action because I'm sure Joe will test and a lot of people I know. They have access to a lot of money. They don't necessarily use it but they're ready to use it when a deal comes because right now being. What's called a contrarian investor when everyone's running away you're running in because you have the finances and you have the education like Joe said and you're ready to take action based on all the data. This is the time you've got. This is part of a piece of the puzzle. You've got to be prepared for. Yeah that's great steam. Absolutely so Steve Joe. Real quick any books or articles or other types of resources that you recommend for rookies. Who want to know more about how to do well. During an investment cycle or during whatever cycle were running into what advice would you give to our rookies to how to start educating themselves? In regards to that apply. Yeah plug in your own books too. Because I don't want to pick that up next. That's how Stephen I met was I read. His buccaneers a message. Joe So this is this. Is My book. This is if you WANNA called Building an empire failing to millions to me. This is a book on learning how to make mistakes but also how to scale mitten understand how to use leverage of systems whether it's other people virtual assistance. Whatever it is. It's kind of my story of how I went through. How nine eleven a disaster. What actually propelled me into real estate. And that's kind of my story. Great Answer Joe. I think the book which I would recommend a really good one a really really good. One is called recession proof. Real Estate Investing How to survive and thrive you're in any phase of economic economic cycle. That's written by J Scott and who's a big pockets host and it's a very very good book. Talks about in in quite details about each of the phase of the market cycle. What are the strategies that work how you position yourself? A success and levees many experiences that other people have had a book published by bigger pockets. And I've read a couple of times and that's a really good one. The other one is probably. I'm sure the people that. Which is the millionaire real estate investor? That's good one as well so I haven't read your book yet Steve. I'm sure that's going to be as you come from the Jay Scott from the book. He mentioned he will actually be on tomorrow's podcast with David and Brandon Talking about the krona buyers and the real estate market. So that's the bigger pockets real estate PODCASTS and Scott. Trench will also be on their anyone. Wants to tune in tomorrow but thank you guys very much for coming on the show. Today I wrote a couple of notes that I just want to summarize things for everyone. It's don't let here deter you. It's okay to be afraid but don't let that stop you from becoming a real estate investor and don't over leverage it's possible to do deals with no money down but make sure you still have money in reserves because things will come up even if it's not a recession it could be your roof lows off or a knows. Steve has experienced hurricane and have a plan in place. You're treated. This is a business treat it like a business and Flea Bay and I have talked about partnerships on here and how when you structure a partnership you know you. WanNa have everything in place the the now the what if and the exit strategy. You don't treat your business like that too if something happens are you going to do about it? And how will you react to that situation? And then focus on your strategy. Don't deter off because of what the media says or you know something you read online from another investor focus on your strategy and take the facts and statistics into consideration in the last thing was just educate yourself from the success and failures of others. Just take those as learning experiences. I think it was Joe. That don't reinvent the wheel like learn from what other people have done. I just want to thank you guys so much has been very valuable talking with you guys and I hope our listeners get a lot of value from it and I'm sure that they well our pleasure.

Today's episode teams and athletes. You'll love to hate give me a tour of the Taj. Mahal hockey. James I'm your host Steve Worn this is Jim Jerome. Things James. Stevie I'm okay. I'm okay. Quite a production. So. Before the show as you know, I'm not superstitious but but I gotta have things set up right? Okay obviously some sort of some sort of nervous sting. Okay. So there's actually there's actually six or seven things that need to happen before you hit record. Okay right and We had them as. You used to be. You'd say to me Jim or why do you always start in then have to get up and get a coffee exactly. Well, because I it needs to be fresh full and hot. Okay. So I can't get a ten minutes before it won't be it won't be it won't be hot. Okay. So then you acquiesced to that. Okay. So you understand. Okay it's time for the hang on. Copy. It's one workout live with. It's fine. Okay. But now there's about six. Okay. So it's the coffee needs to be done. Okay. The furnace needs to be turned off. All right Stevie. The pack of smokes needs to be put on the table. Hey, which I did today. Okay. So I got the coffee as Oh hang on hang on it didn't turn the furnace off. So we have to stop then I did that hang on I got to get the package darts. Okay. We got that and you're like, okay, right? Yeah. No hang on I. GOTTA get the Ashtray Steve. Okay. I. Got I got the Little Tin Bowl full of water. Okay. I gotta get that and then like can we go? Oh no the lighter. Okay I forgot. Yes, these are all the ceremonial things. This is all the structured stuff that happens every daily gentleman, and that's so that's enough and then meanwhile there's like the stuff beyond your control like yesterday you through in the dagger to go to the bathroom now. or though the some guy named, Roddy, just popped in and like just randomly coming through your house Jimmy, what what the Hell's going on over there. I don't. I got an open door policy and then now the other you're finding you. I gotTa Get I. GotTa Get the candle. I need the scented candle because I'm smoking in my house now it's winter. I swore I wouldn't and. So. So those six or seven things which you would think, can you just do all those? Jim and then let me know what I can log on the. Record. So I really think you really think ascended can't candles going to help your house any Cigarettes. You're going to smoke in this show. It does I got the triple I went to bed bath and beyond place. Went shopping with my chick and she loves those places and and her house smells really good i. go into her house on my. This smells like poetry. You know this is unbelievable. You know. How this is unreal, this is nice. Yeah. Just the candles so caught twenty-five fish they cost you stevie, but at the three weeks okay. Your Wife All about the candle she must be oh yeah. Yeah there's one there's one there's once he gets every year at Christmas and just become the smell of Christmas. It's the smell of like how a campfire might smell in the wintertime. It's unbelievable that yeah I got the flannel even get when it says. There's a thousand candles you can get Steve. Flannel. Like. Get that get finally. Get this melting. Yeah. So anyway it works. TV It works. Okay. Even when you blow it out Steve, you blow it out it lingers. Well then it becomes a Potpourri or something or what do you call it What do you call this? The sticks that just sort of smoke forever. Sage sage sticks or something I don't know cunning design, Steve? By The candle company it's it's county linger. On. That one stevie. GonNa take a lot there by the sound of. Hiller. Around the. The, linger. I gotta say I had an old guy moment today by the way. I. Know that usually this portion of the show is devoted to your old guy moments. I had a rare one today. It started the other end of the spectrum you think back to when you're nineteen and the excitement of going to the liquor store and. Doesn't ask for I D or something like that or the first time you get into a bar without the masking Friday big day. Yeah. So this is kind of the. Exit sort aside, the polar opposite of that level of excitement. So I, I went to a new barber today. Liked him. He's great and everything. But, we hadn't met before. So you get the Cape on and everything Tux that thing in around the collar. So the hair doesn't get back and so immediately into the small talk goes. So do you work or are you retired and I was like oh? This is literally the first time in my entire life or anybody suggested that I might be retired based entirely on the look of me. Right. Yeah I. got that hurt that hurt. I got the I, get it I get it because I forget where it was. Maybe Hawaii. Last August. To shop for groceries because we as like a Condo we rented And and running through there and realizing that you're going to Hawaii you've never been there but you you'll hopefully you'll get there one day but the price of food is exorbitant sti of groceries. Okay. It's off the map. For whatever reason I guess it's not like this is this is an island. That that doesn't get a lot of action. You know it's okay. It's a state in America but the loaf of bread is twice what you pay anywhere else. For example so you're six seven bucks. So I remember buying grosses. Holy. Jesus forget the exchange I'd soon as I get there I don't deal with exchange folks anymore. Okay. I don't go. That's twenty bucks all. Yeah but that's you know that's Twenty eight dollars Canadians. that. There it's that currency. That's what we're dealing with. However whenever during the grocery shopping holy Jesus, you know how much Hundred and ten dollars which I'm usually good. Stephen Guessing. What the the TAB will be for the groceries run through. You know I'm always within five percent I've been shopping my whole life. I thought this is a sixty dollar touch here. No one hundred ten. And then it's kind of saying as to the girl. Holy. God is Inter a lot of money here she goes. You should have waited till tomorrow. Sir. Why Seniors Day. Aussie, that's exactly how I felt to. Say over sixty five, you get over what over how old? Sixty five. Yeah. I feel your pain buddy. All right. By the ways, your phone blowing up right now with photos from Russ Court and let the golf course Y'all Ruskin Russ can step back. Kennedy. When our weather is going completely south not in a good way. Look at the last one, he just sent the fairway. Looks. Like it looks like a eight lane race track the way they've cut the fairway. Zozo championship or something is happening invitational thing but it's all the big gunners. It's all top guys in the world. This was an event that taggers started hosting years ago. He may still be the host whatever that means whatever that means it's a it's a four day PJ tournament. I ninety guys there's probably no cut. and it's at Sherwood, which is the famous golf course were Wayne Gretzky lives in place. Sherwood is in a place called West Lake California where a ton of celebrities live. It's quite it's quite the hike from downtown. La It's it's probably a forty five minute drive north west La and lives there to what's that. Lives there. Russ lives there too. He's been there a long time. A. So you've heard US talk about it a lot golf is two hundred and fifty granted join. Sure what but but lots of up to kind of hide. So, there's like Justin Timberlake's got a place up there and Who's the guy does hosts? American, idol for years. The Old Ryan seacrest Ryan. SEACREST is up there mark. Wahlberg. Might be a ton other guys selleck Tom Selleck I've seen around kick around a bunch of occupiers. Lenny Dykstra. Is Up there what a story speaking out check check out the Lenny dykstra story. GUYS BEEN IN JAIL Steve Been in I've heard a lot of his story because Howard stern has a whole bunch of characters on his show. He calls them the wack pack because they all have their those call them quirks and he them on and they're entertaining in their way and leading dykstra is. He's almost pseudo member of the wack pack because is so out there and outrageous and yeah, he did do a little time. Yeah. He he bought. Wayne's house went. So Wayne. When the First House Wayne bought or Second House Wayne bought there was big twenty five Thousand Square Foot House. Okay. The called the Taj Mahal. Is the nickname for. And it's it's it's on mountain peak. In the middle of the golf course. So. You really have this three six. It's just it's just opulence beyond belief you know and Lenny dykstra bought that he bought that house because Lenny Dykstra made a zillion dollars in the car wash business. He did other things that along the way. He's come up with a book. Okay. This is why I saw him the other day and I. Don't know if it was an old a two year old thing that maybe that book was that old I was was probably on Youtube or something was looking at an interview that a sports guy doing with but he ended up buying that house from way. And then Wayne, is now back in that house, he bought it back from. So he went to roll on that lent Lenny bought it. But that hosts any went broke and couldn't afford it. So we put it up on the market again so I. Don't. I don't know where he lives. Now if he's but he's an interesting story noise, he's he's been through thick and thin man A. Sudden Wayne do well on that real estate shuffle when all was said and done wait I've known I've known waiting for thirty plus years and he's only bought and sold houses because they because they wanted to not because they needed to like get. Of course much bigger. Do you need when you had a paltry eight thousand square feet your first? and. A big house is three thousand square feet. Yeah. They just said well, let's go back into it. Let's win and every time you made money. I like when he moved to L. A. Lived on the famous Mulholland drive, you've heard it movies all the time and we have to sell it to move to a different area and made. Made, money on that one he it's pure lucky set. So what beyond beyond the actual price tag in the size of things at his house like when you wander through the Taj Mahal, which I love by the way is a name right when you wander through that place. Like. What are maybe a couple of two or three things that just? Beyond what I imagined like, what are maybe two or three things that make your jaw drop as you wander through that by S-. good great question because there's a number of. So the property itself. Has the. Main Building Steve. Sounds like a complex being. The main one is twenty, five thousand. Square feet. There's a bridge from that. House that goes across the. Four five or six car garage though like. that's a separate building, but there's a bridge that goes over to that garage and above that as an apartment, a kid that building. Now, back behind, that is a tennis court with with another. House there overlooking the tennis court this is on the same property. Okay. They use that as a gym. The way on the other side of the property is a guest house. Okay. So there's one two, three, four, four separate buildings on the property itself. Okay. The dining room, for example. What your dining room you could probably put a leaf in that table Stephen Getty people around. You I'm guessing. Whatever. Your normal. Mine, mine if I had to I gotTA I. GotTa Open Dining Room off my kitchen I could probably get seven or eight people in their. Their their dining room holds thirty five people. Out. There's three separate circular tables of twelve. There's There's There's there's nine bathrooms in the joint. There's a there's something like twenty one televisions throughout the place. There's a there's a movie theater which people go. Yeah. Okay. People call it a movie theater, but it's really just a rumpus room with with a big screen TV no no no, it's a movie theater. Okay. With twenty five seats that recline that are in a row with popcorn. dolby sound surround all that. You know it's a full on deal. That, I always thought that was kind of staggering twenty-five. What what he is, he ever had twenty five people in there. I don't know I don't you know the kids the kids are I mean this kids are growing up right I mean tie just got married his Paulina's married of course, the Dustin. There's two kids at home Emma who's I don't know she must be seventeen or eighteen now. And and she's the big tennis player right? Big Tennis player. Yeah really good. Really good tennis player and Tristan is a really good Golfer. He's gone to pepperdine on a scholarship I. Don't know what's happening. There was school. But he's real good. So they live at home but. The, the funny thing that would stick out for you for sure is of we walked around the house every everything the the the decor is through the roof. Okay. She Rolls Pretty Good Janet. You know from from the antique. The the room I stay in that house. When I go my room in fact, they call Jim's room, Steve. Kerr. Jim's room. They still call Jim's room when I'm not there s Jim. Through. The poster. A bed frame poster. Poster bed frame is. The. KNOBS on the end of its deavere probably like a thousand. Bucks knob right. He take for me to be talking like this right now but. And then what what would stand out is where everyone hangs out Steve Okay. So you twenty five k. here of square footage. is in the Seven Hundred Square foot kitchen. Okay. So when you come back to the, there's always lots on on lots of staff no running the house and looking after things but but everyone crowds into a table that holds six and there's always like eight of us and there's always people around. But as soon as a tweet out that stuff it looks like it's a really fun atmosphere the way they. Cram themselves in together even though they've got thousands of square feet to spread out in, right? Yeah. s families do yeah. Anyway it's. It's really hard to explain. You know I could explain to you. I would understand if you said to me, your neighbor has a five thousand square foot house I can picture that I know what that looks like. You know six thousand begins kind of staggering right six look at this joint right there's four bedrooms. A Monster House multi. It'd be vaulted ceiling Steve Maybe two staircases. If it was a two story, you know there might be a front and back when all that. But Twenty Five Thousand Square feet the Hallway Steve I pasted off one night. So it's one hall that goes from one side of the House right down the middle of the house right to the foreign. Fifty yards or something. I remember wanted yards. Yeah. Fifty Yard, long? I pasted off I. Think I put it on twitter walk. Walked it off one day. Fifty. What about like hockey? Memorabilia Is Wayne keep some of his. Probably would be able to put together the most amazing collection of hockey souvenirs of any player. A couple of things it's funny. You bring that up. So he has he has a warehouse of stuff. And that originally was in Phoenix it may because he of course, he lived in coach there and and I've been to that place. That's where he had an office there and his manager had an office there and then they warehouse a bunch of wind stuff. Big Warehouse. Yeah, it's big. Yeah. It's probably. I don't know it's like. It looks like a home depot in behind all the. Choice of shelves and shelves of stuff what people don't realize true is he has a number of things that he hasn't released. Of of for example, you might recall there's a pretty cool photo that got a lot of action with Wayne Mario Lemieux and Gordie Howe walking together across an outdoor rink, an outdoor ice skating, not not with ring for. There in the Bush almost walking through there right I. Don't know if you can look that up. You'll see it's pretty cool photo of. The three of the greatest players, right? Yeah. So he's got more stuff like that. I think that no one's ever seen that. That that he might release one day or not and certainly not about the money of it but it is a business right? There's there's you can order stuff from Wayne Gretzky. Where that warehouse is now where he did, but but the two other significant places where his most highly valued. Personal collection is. Is it in his house in Brantford in the basement with Walter. Yup. That place of course. ICON. The other one was his restaurant in Toronto where? Super Cool. Shit. Super Cool. Stuff of game were jerseys of Olympics and world championships. Skates from. You know the the last game he played I think those skates were in the restaurant, but he shut the restaurant downright it closed down this week. Or this this last month. And a friend of mine Brian Aaron Worth from a company called framework is in their gathering all that up to store it. Right to keep and so. There's not much in this house actually there's not much not much stuff in this house. Well maybe going to grab something for me because you know how well I I treat Wayne Gretzky Paraphernalia. Bag Keep it, keep it away. From Michael. That's the key that's the key to it. All have to get my own little warehouse in the backyard. Anyway? That's neat. That's neat to hear about that that that really takes the good listener inside on that stuff because. I mean, there's that's a cottage industry right going back to the old Robin Leach, law livestock, other rich and famous right and that's that's the most famous hockey player of all time into kind of hear some behind the scenes stuff. That's cool. I'll give you something else interesting about that. So. Fine and Dandy right to say Oh my God what kind of stuff does this guy? Have you know because the thing about a Wayne Gretzky or a Michael Jordan Or a Tom Brady or Roger Federer. Or? For that matter or I don't know who who you know. Willie mays, all these guys is everything they touch becomes collectible. Sure everything. Okay from. Equipment of course, right equipment. But but here's a car that he sat in. Here's here's a seat that was his his father sat in when he came to the rank. Here's. Here's his Coffee Cup that he drank out of. His a piece of Gum. Member that visa. Yeah. To. That's two of the most absurd chewed gum was barry bonds and then there was also. On ebay vile of Elvis's sweat. What that exactly. But yeah, they're that kind of stuff out there. Right. So what happens with that Steve? Okay. So so now who knows what who knows what? That's worth? Okay. Who knows what? Grabbing a dinner plate from Wayne's houses worth of someone's stolen. And said I was at this function grab thicket and we're going to auction it off. You know. So with that those Steve. So you got a very valuable industry here and brand in the Guy Wayne Gretzky with that comes a lot of scamming. Okay. A lot of people putting stuff out there that unfortunately that that says it's authentic and it's Wayne. Gretzky and it's IT'S A it's a big problem. It happens all the time and the reason I know this is. In fact Wayne was here and then we shot down to Branford for his Golf Tournament that his dad was Walter Gretzky classic and Wing Wing showed up one year and I was with him and I was GonNa Mc the GIG and they had a silent auction. Well. It imagine the lineup for this silent auction Steve. Okay of people who aren't even in the tournament trying to bust into the CLUBHOUSE, right? Okay. Because many the items were signed by certainly by Walter but by Wayne and he has a time guy that he pays. A lawyer that looks after trying to try to police people coming out with with duplications of stuff and right. So i. went to the side. Of thing I was with his brother Glen and we were walking I said, let's go to the auction stuff because I'm I got to promote it right I'm I'm emceeing the GIG right so you know you've done these right don't forget forget over here. We need the money for I hated doing those. Yeah. Hated doing it to buy we walked along and. This is what Glenn is doing. All at this he goes that's a fake. That's not his that's not his signature. That's a fake. That's. Fake fake fake fake. Might be faked. That's real. So it's like four Mennea. Yeah. Yeah. The guys it's The They. Duplicate. His. Autograph. Annual do do I mean when you say, I think about a Guy Gretzky's rookie card and I sold it a number of years ago for like six hundred bucks some guy in l. a. and it's probably worth two three times that. But this I said so little faith because counterfeiting got kept getting so more and more common and to me if you unless you've got like the real. Upper deck started putting like Hologram logos and like just like cash. It was hard to replicate but those early ones like Gretzky rookie or seventy, nine, eighty peachy and then before. To me, it's just cardboard and ink and to me that would be if somebody who's really into it and wanted to go to town, it would be almost impossible to spot these fakes. And then. You Mix in the autograph at should shut it down but not everybody knows exactly what Wayne Gretzky's autograph looks like right right and. I'll tell you what my son did. My son Jake my middle. My middle. Child. Jay Chou's now twenty one. He was a really good basketball player and so is my youngest guy why they both played High School Basketball Jake, a captain actually of his team on giant high school three thousand kids. Super Good player and You could go. Michael. Jordan. Had Basketball a youth basketball camp in Santa Barbara. California which is north of. La and. Jake sort of brought this up. I'd love to go to the Michael Jordan camp rate and on it is Michael shows up every day right and I'm like that. That'd be great son but I just don't have the twenty, two thousand dollars to send you. Okay and he said it's not it's like eight hundred. Bucks Oh. To go to this camp so and it was real. So both my boys went to this three day camp thought a week weeklong three camp. Jordan into it I would imagine it'd be like really hard to get into that still like when it doesn't cost that much I would have thought there'd be. A difficult thing going into that thing. Yeah I sort it. I said well, absolutely and and off they went. Down there and spent three days at this camp and the it was a riot Jordan showed up every day and sometimes for fifteen minutes sometimes he played basketball with them. Shot baskets know. At the end every kid got a picture taken with Michael Jordan. He sat down with them all and my kid. got a pair of Air Jordan shoes and got Michael Jordan sign. Them. So Jake has this. Cool Pero en worn. White Nike Shoes signed by Michael Jordan. And someone offered him five thousand bucks for them. Attempting. He kept him he kept them. Don't let don't let don't let his uncle anywhere near them based on your brother's behavior with some of the stuff you've given him. All over those I'm not I. Didn't say that to pitch them but I don't know maybe sell them if you want some Michael Jordan signed. Like issues. Let me tell. You know welcome to the. Attention from my shed. Why not I'll? We'll take time out here on the program speaking of paying bills. Yeah. Take time out on the program back with more after these words have your insurance rates been going up year over year you're not alone that's happening to everyone. I'm Josh. Molin Turns Antero.

Dallas Cowboys and action last night and I flicked it on for a minute. It struck me I related spies, the cowboys I dislike them so much, and so it got made a wondering James What are the teams and athletes you most love to hate is as much as I like to hate big. D. Certainly, most would know. We listen to this program anyway the Toronto Maple leafs would be the team that I love to hate the most talented. What about you? Well I watched the Dallas game last you gotta give, Dallas a little break here. Okay. Because the quarterback now, right the. Guy went down there with the shattered. An ankle he's got he's got to be gone for the year. Isn't he st oh? Yeah Dak. Prescott Yellow. You know who? Who, who, despise don't like. Patrick. Reid had my number there. Years, ago hatch I'd had him. I'd him written down to your he? He really had my number. For some reason Brooks Kepler bugs, the shit out of me to. For the most successful now he's been hurt I. Think he's just coming back but what a runny was on right with back to back PGA's. And US Open Right. Doesn't win that much but he just wins majors to US opens in a row to PGA Championships in a row, and the funky thing is he has seven PGA tour wins. And more than half of them are majors for major championships. Unbelievable right people and but for some reason. He did an interview. you know about their, you know asking him about the how how do you? Equate your success here. But what's what's going on? How do you? What are you waiting to right? He goes play golf man you know I don't practice much. If you ever GonNa see me swing a club. It's. Because tournament not on a range right I just want this. Food Eight. I don to lie let's be honest. It's a lie. You can't be that good and just play games like that's the mark of guys like me and hackers like I don't WanNa. If I've only got X. amount of time in the course of week if I have time I, want to play around and yes, I have that same attitude. I. Don't WanNa practice I don't WanNa take lessons I wanna go play yeah that. So that's the mark of a hacker. There's no way kept his that good with a practicing and hitting a million balls. Right. So anyway, I it just I just. Jumped on the wagon there with everyone else going I hate this guy. Because most guys Steve would. Be. Look at half of it. They would say to hard work and the and a big percentage of it. If they're humble enough would say you know you need to be lucky man. You really do in the game of golf. And even in some other sports, you know there's a certain amount of luck you know that. BURKS Kaplowitz four majors. In the same in a in a small window there when he's top of the world and you go to play against him and he shoots eighty or shoot seventy-five when he's supposed to shoot sixty five, you're lucky. You're lucky that brooks went back. And you know. So there's a bunch of, but there's none of that with that guy you know none of that would that guy and I immediately hated him. That really what is going because I'm really good. You know I'm really good right and then that inspires nobody that that really makes a fan of no one people who talk about how good they are or how much money they make that inspires absolutely no one some of the other athletes that I dislike I think about conor McGregor in m a that guy just seems like I know that a lot of it is he's a human version of click bait does stuff just for attention but I think that that just Behaving like a punk constantly. And just seeing him in some of the prefight news conferences I dislike that guy a ton and couple of others might include unlike the Washington nationals because well, they are my Montreal Expos have feel like they. They stole something from me Yankees I dislike because of their pedigree, they always seem to win and Montreal grown to dislike Montreal because even though I grew up a fan of Montreal, the haves. I grew disenchanted for years and years disliked them because they always seem to win and their fan base. At such swagger they're always in your face about their championships and we never and then now they annoy me because well, they're really not relevant anymore they haven't. They haven't won a cup in what twenty, seven years, and so you know that's That's the annoying thing. There's the fans remain with swagger even though the Club itself is an also ran and they're not close to winning another Stanley Cup anytime soon so I find that annoying. In that conversation as well, and in the NFL to guys who aren't athletes, Bill Belichick and Jerry Jones they can just go away anytime bill. You don't like bill. No. Disliked the way he behaves when he deals with the media I, think the spotlight has faded from that guy's career. You know say ten years from now. He's well into retirement. He sees some of his old news conferences. I think he's GonNa probably regret that and say she's Pretty much an asshole. Mind Bill Chuck Hockey Wise. Wayne fucking brutal. That guy's gotta go. Any final thoughts today. James before we go. Stevie. I don't like to go down the gross road very often. Really Yeah I don't like doing it. You don't have to hear. Well you can do it. Yeah. That's okay. It's just so I've been. My girl by the way turns fifty today. Happy. Birthday Happy Birthday Tracy hope to meet you soon. For fifty years old. So she hasn't been to my house yet. We've been hanging out for three or four months. And so I because she she has a beautiful home. Okay. Look like looks like your house. It looks like a show home when you walk beautifully decorated gourds windows cleans kitchen. To die for. God. My place not so much TV. Okay. This is like as soon as I saw a house. I said there's no way I could ever. Invite her to my house going come on over I want you to see my house. No I'm not a SLOB, my help. My House is nice but. So No, she's got a Komo scheming ship the other day a little bit. When am I gonNA come over to your house. Okay. So I've been I've been maniacally cleaning my house Steve Okay and. The. Usual. The floors, all that I repainted it and all that stuff right? So I. Ended the bathroom Steve The other day and I'm doing the floors cleaned the toilet in the sink and all that stuff wiping down the mirrors everything Steve looks good. And I trying to get you know trying to get the little stains off around the toilet bowl stevie. Okay and there's always there's always some some leftover stuff steve on the back. Of the toilet seat. K.. Clips clips. The clips you have to pop open to unscrew the toilets. Yes. Okay. So the lead and toilet seat are one piece they come together as you. So when you pop off, you've got the raw toilet bowl. Okay. I said. GonNa pop that often in a clean. That, what's underneath these screws that are holding down the twitter bowl? and. Hold and That orange golden stuff right ten years eve I've been here and did it the other day. Okay for the first time in ten years who? Not. Taken, one for the team Happy Birthday Tracy. Is there any nicer for birthday gift then cleaning your toilet? That was the most beautiful story in fact, don't buy or anything just tell her that story and you'll save yourself some money. She'll be wildly impressed. You know what you just told by the way you basically told the story of pretty in pink the nineteen eighties movie with Molly Ringwald, and so she didn't WanNa. Get dropped off at her house. Joe's got dropped off like a few blocks away because she was embarrassed all that that her lover had lots of money and she didn't she didn't want to didn't want them to see where where they lived. So in this story Jim Your Molly. Ringwald I saw her naked. On TV show I never thought she would give it up realize yeah there's a there's a topless picture molly ringwald in some movie somewhere. Look it up. Look it up. Did you watch. My octopus teacher. Watch the trailer Oh now you gotTa Watch. Back? My didn't have time last night. Okay. Get. We'll get on it. You said, I should watch last night with my wife. It doesn't mean I'm going to. Ask. Your toilet seats if you had a choice, what are you doing? If. You give me those choices and Julie Andrew McCarthy. Let's go. Let's go to his email. Dodd gone in oblivion. Weekend at Bernie's done. Done Sealy. Now. All right. We should get out of your enjoy your night and we'll talk to you too. Goodnight everybody, we'll see. Rest a lineup. That was like all tough guys and he her he gets the I. Guess the last word on his starting line-up toward Arapaho. Rela had all his skill guys out and Hartley at his tough guys out and that was a big. Brawl right off the opening faceoff, and then finally in the intermission Tortorella trying to get plow his way through the Calgary flames entire roster to get it Bob Hartley Easy Brian McGrath in they're kind of just who could take him apart by the way. has kind of given the heisman Todarello's going crazy yellen over shoulding. Clearly wanted to fight Bob Hartley between for your. Beauty. No I liked that that doesn't make the. There's not there's not too many guys. There's not there's not too many but. But the Patrick Greed Patrick Wafting I remember not like An. Off the top of my head. Coaches. Babcock. Kind of little aloof. Little kind of putting himself as bulletproof out there. Too I guess you can take nothing away from. From a guy making a bunch of money but. The. Contract he got the fifty, fifty, million over five I think was it ten, million a year that Bobkov or five, million a year over ten? What was it gets he? I think he got a six year deal worth six million. Per Year obviously correct. Yes. Six. Yeah It was Kinda like really that guy. Is Not very nice. I never had anything bad to say about him because he was in Detroit I don't care much about Detroit one way or the other, and of course, he was team Canada's coach, and so there was some allegiance there and I just. Wasn't until he became the head coach of. The team. I hate the most. The suddenly started appearing on a grading to me and as as history would show, he clearly is grating sort of head coach based on some of his tactics with his players.

I get any room and I'm here so I'm yelling needs and I'm even doing softly now because they'll come fucking ready. And and then I hear muffled now go over there up of the bedroom. How long have they been up there? Oh no they're stuck in there. They can't go anywhere. Steve Okay. Many places Steve Many places. You can have a leak here K. Cats many places that would be the tiled bathroom floor. Bathroom gave their their eight there. Maybe even an old shirt lying on the on the rug. Steve Right Maybe an old towel or something. Maybe in there maybe in the closet you could fire into their okay notice TV okay. Middle of the bed middle of the bed. Okay not even a coroner Steve of the bed. Maybe a little bit couldn't get it on the headboard or anything right works just wipe it off. Okay got to be the GM geographical center geometric center of the bed steep right down through the cover right through the do right through everything onto the mattress. Stevie show self-centered these freaking cats are when you think about it. You'd think that just for their own self preservation. That'd be a little part of their little tiny brains that would go. You know what this is a bad idea. I just gotTa take a leak here. You know part of the brain should say well. This is where my man sleep. So maybe I do go in you know Pe- in the corner somewhere Their go they don't care they're so self centered. I you know what Steve. You know what they do. I got two of them. I'm sure in them ensure before I get up in the morning. They're up all the time. I'm sure they just sit there and talk to each other Steve and say how can we twist Jimmy on a shape today? Twist them up on the shape today. You sound like my statement. Looks like it's one big cat condo the whole thing fucking scratches on the wall. Torn furniture rug piled up everywhere. They run the joint. You know so anyway. They're coming up with new ideas all the time. Stevie okay let's do this. Let's BUSTA Whiz here in the middle of his bed. Let's do that one again. I mean they're they're they're not the most intelligent creatures they've they've got some things about them that are that are smart and stuff. You'd think that that would be there. Like the Golden Rule. Don't urinate on the hand that feeds you right. Oh because they do nothing. They don't kill their own food. They just wait around for the can opener and Oh look at me. I'm a hunter did it to do. I'm going to go into the kitchen now. They rely on you for everything. How about a little respect? You little jerks and the incessant meowing Steve until you until you bow down to their concerns their demands you know. Give it a second food found anyway. My daughter's cat frustrates me because she just got a new one. She's way university and she got like a six month old cat. And it's the greatest cat ever. She keeps sending me video of the tricks. Does right throws a ball comes back and plays fetch every single time. She throws it down the stairs into the basement. And she's got an iphone video on this thing and so there's nothing happening on Ma. You finally finally lost their. Because he's going to swat it around around the furnace for a long time. He'd be gone for days. Nope marches right up. The stairs to do drops is going to be like you know. He's going to be smoking a pipe while you know. They have the robot slippers and stuff reading the paper before long. He's a genius cat and I'm totally jealous. That's a cool cat you. You'RE APP so Steve. I retired by bathroom. The tops around. Okay just over the last few days so you know those two measures have tiling know where you gotta put those little splitters in their spicer's shaped thing speak. Yeah so so. I'm two nights ago till the guy just freshly tiles it and he's got the spaces in there because it takes awhile for it to dry and set and all that stuff and I'm in bed. Got The door closed and I hear this sort of click. Clicking sound can only be my cats and I get up there and my cats in the TUB Steve Batting out all the spaces with his paws Vinci Ting Ting Ting. Knocking them off for crawling up the wall and the other cat is fucking chasing them around the TUB. Okay it sounds like a pinball machine going off I walk in there. All the SPACER CAUGHT. Dial the pissing thing. That's just by nature that's just part of their nature this like as a cat. This is really applying yourself to be an asshole. That's that's what you got there. That is intentionally going out of your way. That's not a cat thing anymore. This is like man. I WanNa be a jerk today. I told you before I got I. I got two litter boxes one out the garage and one down in the basement okay. So it's on. My basement was finished but I had to carve out a bunch of rug and make the concrete floor because the cats were just having a shit all over the place down there okay five inches from the litterbox Steve. Yeah how did he get three feet up the wall Stephen? I've told you this before you. Anyway you got a little fling in. Wyay go. There are assholes. You're right Steve. My cats are fucking all right. Let's jump in today. One of the things that we talked about yesterday was the. Nhl's returned to to to play game plan. And there's a lot of optimism in there like it's almost like cart before the horse like if we're able to maneuver our way there and the world's able to get its act together and whether it's a maybe a some kind of vaccine whether this thing fades on its own. The numbers are down where we can get back out and behaviors normal. Whatever it is. There's a lot of again putting the cart before the horse so they have a good game plan. That's great and everything but I still have a couple of issues with the plan even as it lies. Like if you've got like your oilers would have made the playoffs. How'd your oilers feel if now the twenty four? Th Place for season team gets in there and punch them into the abyss in in the early going. Like how fair is that? I don't mind it when when I when I think about They're trying to make lemons here on lemonade. You know this year or whatever. It is how lemonade limits. Yep there's only two conferences Steve. We can talk about that later but I don't mind it. Steve Because Patch radio referred to him a lot he said whoever wins this cup? Whatever format they come up with. It's going to be the toughest Stanley Cup to win. And this this format that they have is certainly an absolute example of that you know where they've added eight more teams to this thing. I think it's good. You know when you think back over the years Steve. Okay over all the years where they're sixteen teams in the playoffs however they got there and you get a Stanley Cup champs. No one's ever said that was unfair. That was unfair that the way this thing is laid out row no. I can't recall anyone ever saying they gotTa Change The the playoff format so ultimately it's going to be the same right. It's going to get there right through whatever that fucking thing is yesterday. Where they played this round Robin bla-bla-bla get to your sixteen teams and off. You go so I I. You know whether whether someone wins that Cup this year. Who was a a last-minute entry under under this format I think at the big picture? It's like Kudos Kudos man way to go way to go you because you've got to win more. Games right Steve. If you're if you're in that last eight right I think to to win the Cup win a whole extra round compared the yet top four seeds. What we're talking about like you're talking. You're oilers right. Now thinker slated to play Chicago. WanNa say is that sound right. Yes told me yesterday so I mean that's you know I'm sorta speaking. He my own point. They actually only have like eleven points difference between them so it's not as wide massive chasm that. I would have thought had I mean he jumped onto the standings before the show and looked at it. A my not even abroad up this point point because it's you know it's not like Chicago was fifty points behind or something crazy like that so in that in that whole number five to number twelve seed scenario. It is still pretty tight so I don't have a huge problem with it but it I what I wanNA make sure of. The one was not going to be a sustained problem. Just that the regular season doesn't stop. Meaning something I get Scott to mean a ton. They've got to you. Know if you start making this. The policy moving forward twenty four of thirty one teams soon to be thirty to make it into the playoffs. Now you've rendered the regular season pretty much useless. Well not really in my mind but I mean what what is good about Stephen Moore teams in the playoffs. You'RE GONNA you're you'RE GONNA get you're GonNa get teams are going to win it if they kept the sink forever. Okay you're you're going to get teams. Who are outside of that sixteen you know who would normally get in under that that that format who are going to win the Stanley Cup and and you know that's what the you know the League to survive in Excel and move forward and get expansion and all that stuff. It's not a bad thing. It's not a bad thing for a lesser lesser team who've accomplished last who just snuck in to win the Stanley Cup fans love. It comes to our city we got it finally Blah Blah Blah on and on so. I don't mind this I don't mind at all you know and the biggest problem with the playoffs Steve. The way it is now is When teams are out of it right. We've always talked about that. You know that You know there's there's there's going to be eight teams already out of your thirty plus teams who got no shot. We've got no shot by February right. And and now you're like this talk. All the time is WHOA. Whoa slow down boys. Don't stop winning here to get the lottery. Shit that's wrong. There's something wrong with that right right when you got twenty games to go. So that's gotta fix. Yeah you don't WanNA thanking. The tanking has been helped a little by the lottery situation. But it's still there. I mean Peo people are still you know I think maybe not putting their best foot forward as far as who they put on the ice I wanted to get out of the minors dominate down. There kind of thing because you're playing awfully well up here and we'd like to maybe get good draft pick as possible right so that that certainly concerns still but it's not nearly what it once was. Where dead last is an automatic first overall pick next? That is a carrot to be dangled. Well it promotes losing. Of course you can't have a sport that that there's a benefit for you to lose right right. Look at baseball. It's even worse right with teams are okay. They're fifteen games back in January or excuse me. Fifteen Games back Starting April Played Oct fifteen games back bucket in June. So there got no chance so now what right now by the way not just one team. Not just one team. We got two months in of a long season teams. Have no shot. I don't I don't know how you would do it. But the the league that has the best. I don't think he'd get applied here at this stage of the game. Just because of the CA- jillion dollars worth of dough. That's on the line. Like these guys are member clubs for example here in the NHL. They would not take kindly to be sent down to a second tier team some talking about soccer. And where the English premier league does it like not only. Are you not rewarded for playing badly as would be the case in a lot of the North American sports? But you can be punished for it in that. You're out of the League. You're going to be relegated down to give to and you no longer in the league and then we're going to bring up some of the best guys in the Lower League to replace you. I think that's the the fantastic way to do it. From a competitive standpoint it forces everybody to invest in their team properly to put their best foot on the pitch and I think ultimately creates the most competitive competitions possible. So I think it works. Great Yeah or you have a split season thing right. Is The the Pacific Coast Baseball League? Did that one when the triple eight is. They split the season Johnson in half's and there's merit to that right to get to get rid of this. I don't want to go to that game these. I'm not watching this game. Fucking two teams got no chance so that was to me. That's not about to tweak a bit I don't know maybe maybe get come halfway through the season that okay. You guys aren't GonNa make the playoffs in this. So all those teams go into a pool and have a shot at the wild card. Where you I don't know I don't know but they got to fix it right. They got they got to fix it. So there's a ton of interest till the last regular season game. Well changing gears. What I think they need to fix is What's going on in Minneapolis? it just call and capture. Nick took a knee for a long time during the anthems at NFL Games and he was protesting against this exact. The exact thing that happened on Monday and it's one of the most troubling videos I've ever seen You've probably heard the name George Floyd by now. And he was killed by police who were trying to basically keep him restrained the videos. Been out there for a couple of days now There were four police officers in Minneapolis. They've all been fired now for their involvement in the death of George Floyd who is black Floyd was held down with a knee on his neck and protested the whole time for about seven minutes with his officers. And the officers White This officers neon his neck protesting. He couldn't breathe. He was crying for his mom. He was saying please officer and then eventually lost consciousness and the officer state on the neck and the thing went on for about seven minutes by the time paramedic Scott there The Guy was limp and I believe died on the way to hospital one of the most brutal things I've seen social media's upside down And I I mean what we're what we're thoughts when you watch that Video Grossman. I was just completely grossed out when I saw it. I was going like this. Get off his neck. Get off his neck man. Let the guy up. You know the videos very clear what I saw. It's just absolutely absolutely gross. It looked like a guy killing a guy to me guy and and really casually to had one hand on the car. You know sort of thing I mean. It was just unbearable unbearable to watch. There's other video other than what you saw like. There's a second video from one of the businesses on the street and that video shows that the guy was handcuffed and didn't resist as the handcuffs went on. They disappear from the camera for a while but even if he's resisting at that point he's in handcuffs at that stage and can't really do much and you know where is like you. You got four cops on the scene here. Two other the cops are helping the guy you see. That's got his knee and Floyd's neck And there's another cop Asian Fella you just standing there like he's got a bird's eye view of everything that's happening so these other two cops that are helping in this one guy standing there. It didn't dawn on any of them that you know kneeling full weight. On someone's neck might be. Problematic might be a crime like at worst. They're all guilty of accomplice to murder. Oh man like all right best. The Culture in the Minneapolis Police Department is horrifically broken. Because I mean odds are at least one of those three other cops knew that officer douchebag. There was crossing the line but probably thinking. Oh be bad for my career interfere with With officer officer douchebag gear. Yeah it's I mean. Obviously there's just so much wrong with it right from the get go. You know I mean what do you do here? What do you do here? You know when when you look at this I don't like to like to. I've always had a lot of trouble with Painting the wide brush with in this you know social injustice and people breaking that You know breaking the law when they when they do this sort of stuff that that everybody is like that you know. There's gotTa be some consequence here. There's gotTa be some heavy heavy consequence for what this guy did. And THOSE OTHER COPS to Steve. Standing around and and I'm SORTA wait for some guy that just cross body that Cocco get off them. You know They got him in handcuffs. You've got you've got. You've got pepper spray. You've got three other cops are that can hold his legs arms carry him. You know you can put leg shackles on the guy could remote. The Taser rippled the TASERS. There's so many things you can do that. That just didn't happen so the guy loses his mind you know. He loses his mind. So this guy's got some trouble here. This is troubled cop man. There's something going on and the guy looks at that. How how he can see it any other way but but brutality here that he laid on this guy so now you gotta you gotTa try and figure out why. Why did this happen? You bring up you bring up this point about the culture of police. The culture that in Minneapolis police force. Now when they're going to look at all this and yet and yet I still say okay. Wait a minute here though. Wait a minute. Let's look at what this guy did. Now you're GONNA look at. How did he come to that? How did he come to that? And then do we look at further our these trained? Where does he? Where does he possibly place? Does he go to in his head? You know that that he's not thinking anything else. But I'M GONNA keep my neil his neck. Yeah how it's just it's crazy. It's crazy to me in every case you. You don't like to based on video. Have this rush to judgment the might be factors. We don't know but there's nothing about this story that I've seen from video or have read from accounts that I can find any level of you know understanding like like all he did was like he just kept his knee on their full way on the guy's neck he's got him subdued. The guy is just like not a problem anymore and he still doing it. And he's eating for his life. The and you had seven minutes. Sometimes you see you know where you might understand like a snap like a like a split second bad decision. This guy had seven minutes to gather his thoughts and at not not not at any point that he sought decide to let this guy have oxygen. Like what kind of a sub human must this cop have thought that this person is to do that? And there's no. This guy didn't have a weapon. This guy didn't do anything violent. They were after him because of check. Forgery believes intoxicated. So there's always maybe some concern about Dui but none of that rises to the level of. I feel threatened as a police officer. And he's not alone. Steve Okay the COP. A little different. If he's pulled some guy over it's late at night and he's by himself Demands for the guy to get out of the car is not showing his hands and and so I get that I get that. Wait a minute here. This guy was not doing what he was told to do. And I'm in trouble here. You know I'm fear. He gets out of the cars go hands in his pockets and shit like that so this guy's got to do everything to take him down but he's not alone here. He's not alone guys fully fully paralyzed here. Okay there's no threat there's nothing here so there's something wrong with that COP. Steve something and something wrong with the other cops that that they don't step into go he. But WHOA WHOA. Whoa you know All that hindsight of course is going to be twenty twenty on this deal but there's something wrong with the cop with him a mental place. He's been put into by something that recently happened in his life that he's just absurd lutely a ball of fury and he's just so enraged that anybody that gets in his way is an an and shows any level of push back toward him or disrespect and he just snapped and and that may well be just something personal with that cop or it may be as half of America is saying right now. It may well be a case of blatant racism. Maybe maybe right and so how do you avoid that right how do you how do you avoid that? There's doubt my mind Steve that what people do forget is that being. A police officer is a wildly stressful job okay. It's it's crazy stressful. There's there's no doubting that okay what you have to deal with each to. Every EVERY DAY STEVE. You're making calls domestic calls Traffic stops drug raids all undercover stuff. And I can understand that. It's like Holy Fuck Man. This imagine that every single day fearing fearing for your life in the extreme. It's very real and just like drug testing Steve. I think these guys that every once a year twice a year that they gotta get into some some psychological counseling whether you think you need it or not or whether they do or not you know I wanNa to know where my guys coming from. I WanNa know where my the guys on the staff of this police force? Let's just check in with each other all along the way here often and a to to make sure everyone's mentally capable of doing this very very difficult job right you know. And I'm not look at Steve who knows who knows what happened here with this guy but there's again they've got to be heavy heavy consequences for for what happened here but I'm sad from just a human being standpoint. Whatever color that this victim was this was just gross and Almost almost A. It's all over the Internet. Now it's like it's a murder. Like Ah when was this? What are we showing murders on Ryan on social media and television so freely? It's like I understand that there's a social issue very troubling one at the root of this whole thing. But I'm I think I need to see a murderer as many times as I have and that's anyway I wanted to talk about it because it really troubled me and yeah I mean. Any EMOTION DISGUST. That people are feeling. It's it's understandable like you said the concern would be after this settles down. You know I think this guy should be charged with murder. I think the other guys should be accomplices to it and off. You go right to start this terrible terrible future days ahead for for everybody for everybody and but there's consequences for your actions and Mike Concern. My concern would be what comes out of this guy when we do when we do get them tested when they do get them with a psychiatrist and to find out if he's able to stand trial and all this stuff if if it goes that far if he if he pleads not guilty who is what everyone what. What's everyone else thinking in the police force? Where do these guys were? Where does this thing go so wrong? So fucking wrong here that you end up killing this guy you know so all right. Well let's move on to Maybe a little lighter story to close out the show or get into a discussion about who Phil Mickelson. Well that's a bad transition but it is what it is Phil Mickelson with some suggestions on the next celebrities who should be part of the next charity golf event.

The Glenn Walton Real Estate Team at Glen Walton Dot Com so Phil Mickelson's come up with a list of celebrities that he thinks Would be good if they decide to do this. Whole charity goal thing again usually. It doesn't work particularly well but this one just seemed to strike a chord. Maybe it's the NFL angle. Maybe it's the right personalities. They certainly got the best to or at least the most to Interesting golfers in Woods Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. So I don't know if this is Something you're able to replicate but Phil Mickelson has come up with the following names of celebrities. He thinks would work in this. Got Your Bill Murray. I don't know what kind of Golfer he is. I know he's on. The was the Pebble Beach. Not With Golfer. Okay there you go Pat Mahomes Michael Jordan Tony Romo Steph Curry Wayne Gretzky through Gretzky and those guys can all play. Does I mean Jordan and Romo would that be I mean it? Just be a matter of do they have the sort of cachet. The charisma the personality to kind of pull that thing off. I don't know I think initially here. They're the reason they're talking about that is because that thing was so successful. There's what your clips of them ripping each other and stuff so it came off better than they even expected. So that's why you have this thing. Now we're Phil's coming out a few days later going here man. We keep the ball rolling here Jordan's a huge Golfer. Mike Michael Jordan's massive Golfer Zig young. He's pretty good player. Apparently grace's good player you know. He's a single digit handicap got. Yeah it's I guess who? I missed a frigging thing. If you can believe it. But by all indications the thing was a smash hit so. I don't want to hear like Bill. Murray the he's he's the biggest attraction for sure as a CELEB- at that pebble beach because he spends all his time engaging with the crowd all of it when he wa when he walks off. The tee doesn't walk down the middle of the fairway. He walks along the ropes. There you know. He poses for pictures and he's super funny animated. He's the Mascot Man of that tournament. Bro. Don't my mind so he he's of no brainer. He's a no brainer that to do it. Kim comedians would be would be smart guys to get for that thing right because they're hilarious fast on their feet they can. You know I'd love to see. I love to see bill burr out there. You know who's who can rip with anybody you know. So that's that's what I think they should do. I don't like to put in a vote for page spirit AC or the girl. She's she's an instagram model but also nearly an LPGA level golfer. She's got two point five million followers on instagram. And and I know why she got a death threat the other day by the way just a few days ago. She got a death threat over her. Tweet she Santo Yeah. She's I guess she wasn't a tweeted. It was she has a podcast and she claimed on a recent episode that any male Golfer who uses a pushcart is a much Oh and then she tweeted out. I just got a death. Threat over. A pushcart. Pushed Kharlamov pushcart mafia roles deep literally. Well that's kind of funny that she said it is. Yeah I tell you. Speaking speaking of just don't understand that whole life of the celebrity that can go quickly sideways totally Yup. The Battle of the sexist thing. Steve doesn't doesn't work in golf. Okay with you know to have women for example. Play against men while you gotTa have a shorter course. They've got a plan an up and all that stuff and they will never be able to play as well as men just because they can't hit it far enough to get haste for this but so I. I don't think that works. I wasn't advocating a gender battle. I was just advocating for page spear neck shoe known there. Anyway you can well. I'll tell you this if you had the choice Steve. If you got to pick so you're going to have Phil Taggart. That's good kept dusty. Maybe because they've had a rivalry going on themselves is so you've got to pick you got to pick the to celebs. Would you rather have peyton manage pretty strong so would you? Would you rather have mahomes? Okay there or Chris Rock you know right or would you rather have rivers there the quarterback or would you rather have You know some other great great comedian. Whose HILARIOUS ARE CHARLES. Barkley for example right. I Want Barkley out there you know. I Want Bill Burr. I Want Chris Rock. I want to Eddie Murphy I want. Conan O'Brien is absolutely hilarious. You know drop dead funny. Because that's what the thing's all about it's not. It's not about the talent to play golf so I'm onto something. They're going to listen to me all right with that. We shall take our leave. Have a great day Jimmy. We'll talk to you tomorrow. Good night. Everybody we'll see you.
