Pandemic playoffs: Brewers, Astros in despite losing records
"When you woke up on Sunday morning none of the eight matchups were said I. think that's kind of cool that would be like the the final day of the regular season Lebron Yeah I don't even know who we're playing. That's what it was for every single team yesterday in Major League Baseball your dodgers are going to play the brewers who got in yesterday with the first losing record granted at sixty. Games with the first losing record for a team in the history of the Major League Baseball Playoffs there were twenty nine and thirty one opening round best of three all in the same ballpark what are your thoughts and we couldn't lose I mean you know it. Likely not, but we could because his only three games all they got to do is win two of them, right? So baseball is so weird dodgers obviously you mentioned we got him at home dodger stadium. I don't think that you know I'm sure we're going to roll out Walker Bueller in Kershaw and we're going to do what we need to do to get to the next round But you could lose you know teams could lose you know the beginning of the year, the dodgers and the Yankees were pretty much the favorites to to get to the thing. In the end, but then the pandemic happened then we had to do all of the rescheduling and figure out how many games that went on for so long how many games should they play the only WanNa play this amount, the players, WanNa, play that amount it became a money issue, and now we finally have gotten to the point where October will be playoff baseball. Speaking out, let's go through a couple of interesting storylines after this round by the way, then everything is going to be played at trial sites and eventually the world series will be played at the home of the Texas Rangers and they'll wrap that no. Later than October twenty eighth, they want to avoid the second third. So homefield everybody early, and then we're going to neutral sites, Los Angeles San Diego. Texas and Houston quick thoughts the Yankees of the five seat in the AL, the five seat, the rays of the one-seat. What does the same thing with the dodgers? Right? The Yankees could they take care of business they moved their events they don't they go home whether they a one C or DHCP. It's everybody's even really to be honest with you. Everybody's even Garrett Cole. Start, for the Yankees Chain Bieber for the Indians in for all the money they paid Garrett Cole Shane Beavers had a better year he has in when you look at it, there are no fans in the stands. So there's no home field advantage for anybody you know what's great about not having fans the Houston Astros. Left right. Everywhere they go. They are the sick see the astros have made it in baseball's big off season, they should just get blinked. Every time people bring up the Astros are frown just cheated just blatant just cheat to win. They're taking on the Minnesota twins keys, dodgers will take on the brewers the padres in the playoffs for the first time in fourteen years will take on the Saint Louis Cardinals and the much maligned and I know it's a sixty game season. How about the Miami Marlins under? Derek. Jeter, for everything that they have gone through there and they'll get the Chicago cubs. Yeah. They they. They deserve to being I'm happy for I'm happy for Jeeter because when he? Blew everything up and traded. Call Stan and everybody was like Oh they just care about the money. They're completely trash in the organization, and now they're in the playoffs and they take on. Chicago like you said, one
Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
Trump paid just $750 in US income tax in election year.
"Some who see it as a neo colonial foray. Donald Trump paid just seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes. The year he ran for president and in his first year in the White House according to a report yesterday in the New York. Times. Trump who has fiercely guarded he's tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public pay no federal income taxes in ten of the past fifteen years. He campaigned for office as a billionaire, real estate mogul and successful businessman. Speaking at a news conference at the White House trump dismissed the report and said he has paid taxes though he gave no specifics. The disclosure which the time says comes from tax return data is obtained extending over two decades comes at a pivotal moment ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday and weeks before divisive election against Democrat Joe Biden. The president vowed that information about his taxes will all be revealed but he offered no timeline for disclosure and made similar promises during the two thousand sixteen campaign on which he never followed through. In fact, the president has fielded court challenges against those seeking to access his returns including the
iOS 14 Extravaganza
"Well, apple did release a new update and It has got people's attention even my children who are not totally tuned in the singer Dad. What is this widget thing at understand? So this year the release cop people's attention. We thought it'd be fun to give a whole show. Now that's out in the public and you and I've been using it through the Beta. We've got some wisdom to drop on you. It's right. An Extravaganza of wisdom is what we've just say. No choice now. We. Are there the word has been used right let's get this extravaganza rolling. I feel like I should play some music or something Yes I think widgets are the most visible change to Iowa's fourteen apples kinda slowly been changing and updating. The design has Iowa seven and fourteen is basically in line with all of that. But which I think are the sort of headline feature because it's what you see. The first time release a folders were added that the home screen experience has changed in any meaningful way. Now, it's not a free for all like it is an android you know you're still dealing with like top to bottom you know sort of you gotta fill up one row before you go to the next row there still limitations but widgets have really I think they've really popped more than I thought they would and. Honestly like I was thinking about it before recording. Okay like our or Irish which it's for me. Are they like some other Iowa's features or Mac os features a really cool to play with maybe long term they don't stick around that it's don't find a place in my workflow replacing in my life. But I think I'm I think which is our home run guests school and Android a longtime ago and they've been great on Android for a long time but I'm so excited to have a moment, my phone and my IPAD. I mean they're done well, but they're done with an opinion like something apple would make. But when we were talking about it at our dinner table which. Is Notable because as much as I max Barky at the dinner table. I'm dad sure. But my kids are like you know this was overdue. This list someone feels modern now I mean it just interesting to me to people who are not thinking about this stuff as much as we do on our audience does but it this is clearly something that's going to resonate with people. And you know to answer your question will at worker won't work. It really depends on a couple of factors I. Think you know the software developers need to embrace it. which they've already started to an apple needs to. You know keep the gas down on this you know. So the good the good news about which is right. They're pretty the they look great on your screen. They idea of the different sizes and picking. So you can kind of make an attractive looking screen. Is a thing that is possible for anyone, and I think that apple really you know thinking that through and when you look at Android I've been using an android phone for a while now and it really is just a free for all in you have the freedom to make an incredibly ugly homes cream. And the way apple did this it's pretty hard to make it ugly because the way it's structured in the way the API work. So I, think that's the big plus that the downside is the interaction model. You know it's The old widgets you could actually interact with with these you're getting data or you're launching an APP. And think apple needs to improve that next year which it's new to allow you to interact with them.

"Little bit of the mail. The mail discounted balance. Is it off to have it? I recently shifted to a half cran half no crayon because I want want the sweetness, but sometimes when I get a full Suite it's a little bit too much for me. Let me give you one local here though in Vegas cuz I know people come to visit us down still probably too much during the pandemic, but they good for them. Look at a little bit off the beaten path and you're going to have drive away from the strip for about ten minutes to get there seven sinful Subs small place. Not a tennis eating sandwiches are very reasonably priced unbelievable meatballs, especially when you consider it's on the west coast just a ton of fun things on their menu.

Lessons from lockdown (with Nafisa & Tasneem)
"Never, go member one but I can Salaam Haney visa high fiving. I am sweltering melting we speaking literally. You know while I'm just glad that we do sound and visuals right now. THREAT PAINT, down my face. Drooping. Disgusting. Listeners would literally block us if they could see us right now but. Shit. That'll be enough of this nasty window computer screen as well. With more. So what we talking about today, we're talking about lessons that we've learned from lockdown. So with one lockdown behind us and another potentially on the way we thought we take a look at three lessons that we've learned from lockdown. Tasneem. Let's start off with you and your family. What's the one family lesson that you've learned that we can learn from? Okay I'll try and condense it to one family. And okay, so obviously. It's been difficult being stuck with the same people day in day out but I. Realized, that can be enjoyable as well. If you just let go a little bit and not kind sweat the little stuff. Like you I'm so busy at work of time and all of that kind of as she see my kids that much during the week by reading it enjoy spending some time with them and it made me realize I. so important to spend that time with family and not just with the kids there. But with elders, my grandma passed away during lock Tom and I so many regrets because I haven't seen her for about two months because we were in lockdown about six weeks before she passed away. So she had no guests. No one could go see her haven't seen her for about two months and I think that burke me just knowing that she went issue pretty much alone and no one was around with echo she was in hospital and that Kinda thing and then I missed not just her everyone that we couldn't agree together we couldn't mourn together. We couldn't do anything together we would just so isolated and I kept thinking and my parents are getting old or if they go their next and then to see them and not getting to spend time with them, and all of that was playing through my mind and I just realized that is so important just to. Enjoy spending time with family wall. We still have them. All kids are elders everybody just? Yeah. It's priceless. I completely agree with you and I felt some of what you felt as well not taking family for granted and just really missing one after awhile initially, it was kind of a novelty and you think you're a quite like being isolated and thank God we don't have any more guests don't have to go to anyone. So we went through that for a while and then the fatigue slowly started to settle in and we kept thinking Oh, imagine if we could do this and imagine if you could visit that person especially you know Ramadan came and went and eat and the same thing I lost my grandma as well. Just start of lockdown. Husband works from home and I work from home. So we do see children quite a lot when they're at home and at school. So for us even though effect like summer, holidays, Christmas holidays at the beginning, we did slowly start to realize that what the school does for them is priceless as well. My husband especially felt like the school really painted important role in the children's lives, which which we didn't value may be as much or just think about it although we really enjoyed spending time with children and there were so many other things we did that we didn't do before lockdown you know playing more games finding imaginative ways of doing things. We did miss the outside world. We were thinking something simple as meeting somebody or a stranger even being able to walk past without recoiling and things like that I think it really made us realize the importance of simple things that we took for granted I think what you said about the schools do for kids and how undervalue a parochial is definitely true. I think. Obviously, like you said, we really enjoyed the time the kids, but it did come to a point win it was getting overwhelming and I think the home schooling. Pov, it was getting overwhelming and it made me realize that I could never ever heard school my children like every day I'd log on and do the work with them and I just felt like destroying the education. Helping on doing all the good the teachers done the loss. Gee, I ruined all. I'm pretty sure I'm learning feeling like that as well on really tough and to be honest my kids tools the end just lockdown was lifted hunter lot the right time the beginning of feral. Call from outside both. So long stuff that the navy do before they started doing like damn and they need space because everyone doesn he space from everyone else and they also need space from each other and you. Definitely me. And they weren't getting that. Everything, in moderation, right thing is really important to have in life. So you have times but you take some time out, take a step back and just reflect right. But then at the same time, you need other things to go on. So it's important to take a step back ball forever.

Canadas Single Payer Prevails Against Privatization Attempt
"I, Benjamin. Day. And I'm Stephanie Nakajima. And this is Medicare for all. The podcast for everybody needs healthcare. Today. We have Dr Monica debt who is on the board of Canadian. Doctors for Medicare and Public Health and family physician. Nova Scotia, we're thrilled to have her on today to talk about historic legal challenge to the Medicare program that was just heard by the Supreme Court of British Columbia and spoiler the victory delivered by the court to the country single payer system. I cannot wait to hear about this welcome Dr Dot and I'm just curious before we get into the topic. I mean. You're a family physician, but how did you get involved with? Felt the need to get involved with? Health reform. Protecting the Canadian universal healthcare system, but also trying to expand it and improve upon it. Here Hi. Thanks for having me on your podcast I'm really excited to be here. I've been a family physician about ten years. Now, I've worked in a range of settings from big cities to to mainly though northern. Towns across Canada and I've always been in settings where I've very much appreciated. The fact that my patients have access to healthcare wherever we are whether it's a small town or a big city. You know there's there's variations of cross across the country, but fundamentally, all of my patients do not need to worry about. Physician and hospital care. They do not need to pay when they come see knee or when they get to the hospital they know they can count on that care and that's always been really important to me. I also work in public health in very much care about health policies that. Benefit the health of a community of population and absolutely access to to healthcare is a fundamental determinant of Health I. Think it's something that I wanted to support in a in a everywhere I can in one of those ways has been through involvement with Canadian Doctors for Medicare for about the last ten years. and GM or Canadian for Medicare A as a nonprofit organization we've existed just over ten years and our. Fundamental goal is to maintain an improve our single payer publicly funded healthcare system in. Canada. So we want to maintain that single payer but at the same time know that there's there's always things we can do to make it better, but we can do that with a single payer system. So that it might be a bit confusing for our listeners. To hear that the Canadian single payer healthcare system is also called Medicare since we have a program called Medicare that only. Available for seniors sixty, five and older Whereas Canadian Medicare is of course. Accessible to everybody from to cradle-to-grave. So can you just talk a little bit about how Canadian Medicare works are there are there physician networks? Can you ever lose your coverage? Are you allowed to just out of the system or pay to jump the queue? So we do color our health care system Medicare in Canada at the same time when it actually is it's a series of we have provinces and territories, and so there are thirteen provincial and territorial health insurance programs across the country. So every province and territory is responsible for delivering care. Under the umbrella of what's called the Canada Health Act, which outlines the core principles of of Medicare and Canada and one imposes is universality but really it's a a series of health insurance plans that everyone is covered for primarily for physician and hospital services. So for example, where I work I see patients I build my provincial health insurance program I get paid in that way I cannot bill a private insurance program for for my services. Because it is publicly funded. I'm not allowed to then go in and bill a private insurance program. So for the pieces that are covered publicly through universal system, you cannot buy insurance to go see a physician or go to a hospital privately you need to access it through the public system just as as everyone else does we do have some of our care about thirty percent that is privately paid for either through supplemental insurance or through. Private payment, and that covers pieces like dental care some medications, physiotherapy other allied health professionals, and to be honest it's a gap in that we don't cover some of those pieces, but the vast majority of of care is covered under our public system.

"More headlines starting with the response to a new Washington Post investigative piece into the Washington football team. The report includes allegation that a member of Washington management instructed employees to create a video for owner Dan Snyder partially nude team cheerleaders from two and eight swimsuit calendar shoot. Also, a former cheerleader said that in two thousand and four Snyder suggested that she join his close friend in a hotel room Snyder denied both allegations and call the report quote a hit job. The NFL condemned what it called quote, the unprofessional disturbing and abhorrent unquote behavior alleged in the peace, and then back the existing investigation by law firm hired by Snyder will do you think the League is doing enough. Not. Yet Tony I don't believe in investigations paid for commission ordered up by. The team involved that sorry I mean by the by the party that is being accused of something and in the case of the Washington football team that has been sexual harassment it has been You know completely improper workplace culture and so don't tell me just the The Washington football team gets to. Pay For conduct, commission, its own investigation I don't WanNa hear that. So in that way, the League is not doing enough and Tony I. think that you and I like everybody in Washington who has paid attention to this football team, which is like everybody. We continue to say okay. How does this involve or does it involve and if it does to what extent? The owner of the Washington Football Team Dan Snyder who issued a statement today and we both read it closely probably read it multiple times and it was a strong denial denial doesn't mean it didn't happen. And so you know I'm to the point now Tony where there's a lot of smoke a lot of smoke. Yeah. So this is the second big piece in the Washington Post where we worked for thirty and forty years which we respect very, very much. It talks about the toxic culture towards women in that organization over a long period of time, Dan Snyder has apparently said, this is my responsibility and it's going to change. He's made a couple of hires in the last month or so we hired your friend, Julie Donaldson Run television, and radio. He hired your alarm at northwestern Jason Right to run the team. I'm not sure about this. I think it's possible the league wide. This is the. First woman ever in that position and a black man and that's completely I, especially running the team and he has invited in this very well respected law firm. Okay. I share with you the cynicism that if your inviting the law firm in, they're not gonNa feel obliged to you. But I but I'm not sure about that I do think this Mike and I know you agree with if there is linkage if there is linkage to this culture. To this owner under the scrutiny of the Washington football team is under right now, the league will seek to remove him if there is direct linkage I believe. I think that has to be determined and it doesn't get to be determined by Dan. Snyder or any law firm that he or the club hires, but it has to be first of all. It has to be asked I mean there's gotta be out of curiosity about it, and the question is when you combine the two stories in the Washington Post over the last couple of months and the story in the. New York Times several years ago you know about cheerleaders being asked to be escorts on saying Costa Rica when you start adding all these things up and the notion that we hear all the time that there's more to come. There's always that thing there's more to come I. Mean we have to look at this with a certain cynicism, and if the NFL is not doing that the NFL's not doing its job. Let's take a break.

If you WANNA NEAL IF PEOPLE WANNA raise a fist black glove whatever you wanNA. Do Fine. Just pay attention just do that. So I'M GONNA deal with the issue as I've dealt with before which is I, don't care what anybody sings. You can say what you want. If it was up to me, you'd either seeing into the mystic. 'CAUSE everybody loves to sing my girl. The fact of the matter is that it is an invention to sing the national anthem or any anthem before a sporting event. It's simply an invention. We wrap ourselves far too tightly in the flag in this country is my opinion now. The one thing I wonder about. Is is the NFL PA on board with this and I'll tell you exactly why, because if this is seen as just a piece of candy, then the NFL is going to get justifiably criticized for, and if in fact, all the players stand for one and all the players Neil, for the other, the NFL problem that it has not anticipated because some people in this country to go well I assume there was a deal here. I sort of assumed that you do both I hope the NFL in the NFL. PA are are joystick together on this one, but as far as singing. It's fine with me. It's fine with me I'm GONNA call Michael or Liz tonight. We have a single long on the phone. Michael can join in. By the way one time just so I can make this clear. You can hire people and you need to NFL in every industry. And you can also sing. One does not preclude the other side I. WanNa hear this like at some you know like you say either or proposition it is it so people getting them up their phony excuses and scream on twitter all they want. Make. Some hires make some promotions sing lift every voice sensing. I'd love to see that. why don't you hire people who are good singers as well? I can sing it Mrs. Richard schooled me I. Know Voice Instinct Yes. Do Walk Reverses. You like that James Weldon Johnson. Let's move the NBA. As if the Orlando Bubble Tony Wasn't precarious enough. The NBA is reportedly in deep discussions to launch a second bubble for the teams that did not make the cut for the original bubble Jackie macmullan reports. It would take place in Chicago Hey. With every team practicing for two weeks and then playing four games for under the same testing procedures, the League is implementing in Florida. Tone with the upside of a losers bubbled in a bubble outweigh the downside. So I'm going to be fairly brief on this one, what upside exactly are we talking about? Nobody. Nobody wants to see these teams play these teams. These teams stink. You've already expanded the original bubble to include more teams than you need it. And now you putting together a second bubble for absolutely what is the is the reason greed. What does it do you think good players from the Steph curry is going into the second bubble this. Maybe. You have a good reason for this. This seems insane to me. I would not want to be the person calling Steph, Curry Klay Thompson Draymond Green. Going to play this, let me just say this I I've talked to. A little smattering of players. Coaches executives. From those eight teams! Nobody is said to be I. WANNA. Go. I can't do it in that bubble from what I'm told from what I am told. If what's being reported, it sounds like Michelle Roberts wants this. She wants the her players. The constituents to have the same opportunity I. Dunno same opportunity at what 'cause. Sixteen teams make the playoffs playoffs. You can't rush it away. All the other fourteen should have the same opportunity. This seems to be looked. The intention may be great. I'm going to presume it is I. Want to presume the intention is great but I. don't get it the like no. No I don't I, if we. Has the staff and the money to put this on, nope. WHO's GonNa televise it which is where some of them I. If you if you care about the health and safety during a pandemic of your players, why are you doing this? At great length about what the bubble is, and how it constricts life, and how nobody really wants to do this unless going for championship this Mike, this makes no sense. It just makes no sense. Does it Demar Rosen and JJ redick spoken so passionately and eloquently in the last twenty four hours a battle cam do in this, but this is hard. This is difficult to do. It's difficult to navigate successfully, and if anything Michelle Roberts, or whoever needs to listen knees listening to the two of them, and they will get off this point to be set aside..

"And undelighted to say that I'm joined now by Dr Donna. She is the program director of graphic design at Camberwell. Chelsea and Wimbledon colleges of our donahue sent forward some. Topics perhaps the most timely one was about how we find our way back into the shops now. This is obviously just an issue around design, but I think for the first time in a long time, shopkeepers are having to think about how they signal space how they use their entrances and used their windows. What kind of role can designers play when it comes to getting the economy going and getting retailers back on the front line? Well I think it's been interesting exploring these spaces in the past three. I haven't stepped into the shops, because I don't Miss Shopping at all actually, but I have spent a considerable amount of time in waitress and other shops across the city, and I think that what is missing is actually that designer Lee thinking that you would expect you know how designers understand space, and what these different things on the floor, so these finals that you find on the floor are actually signaling to people so when you go to Tesco you actually look at the vinyl that's on the floor, and you're not sure what the symbol is telling. Telling you is that telling me to queue? This way is telling me to move in this direction, and you see this confusion amongst everybody in the store. What is missing here is design I. Think what's going on is that the visuals are very much what you would consider a lot of icons that for someone reading. It would say okay. This is quite straightforward, but actually it's not I think design plays a huge role in this especially with small shops. I find struggled a lot with the social distancing. There's a lot of products around and they. They just sort of had no time. No Guidance and they just put on the floor and just hope for the best by reducing the amount of people in the store, but it was quite stressful. Experience in terms of even with social distancing. There was still a lot of people there people to know how to navigate. The space design was very much missing within that experience and I think that it plays a huge role in terms of how we understand space particularly in these times. Maybe there's too much stuff in the shop, so designers can look. Look at a blueprint and say you know. Perhaps you move this here. He moved here. Move this here that way. You can maximize your space. And what about the Senate? What does it say? How do people read it? How are people actually using the space? So this type of user research that I think that the shops didn't even have time to do obviously and I think it's kind of no time to be snobbish I'm really happy that you mentioned tape as well because I think we all want the design solutions that people found to be. UNAMBIGUOUS and beautiful and directors in a way that is completely uncompromisingly perfect, but actually people are quite used to rubbing up against one another then not very used to going into shops, some shops, a quite small spaces, so I think a lot of it as you say is about. People taking the initiative and people doing things at any kind of golden rules, the if I were to draw on your theoretical knowledge of design in your in your great experience was the key to getting these messages across to people. Is it being utterly on ambiguous? Is it about making people smile sometimes? What advice do you have for people? A media restructuring that hold whole. Whole space. I think that we've been in this for quite some time. Now. I what I would have liked to see is an emphasis on how people are navigating the space and reiterating the way the space is configured. How are people responding to the Security Guard in the front tower? They responding to the two meter rule. How are they actually navigating the different aisles? Aisles and just to kind of conduct system that maybe doesn't make it as stressful. I think right now. The systems are stressful. Is there a way for us to add a certain amount of play may be I'm also kind of weary of that is this time I mean? There has been some quite clever things here and there but I just think that it's a very. Very sort of practical time, and what they need to do is just to ensure that people don't feel so overwhelmed when they come in the space, because it just feels like a haphazard solution that they've put together, and they're not really considering the next phase of it, you come into a shop and there's plastic everywhere and people are wearing all this gear and it's. It's not a great experience how to make that better. I'm not entirely sure right now and I'm not entirely sure that's. That's the main goal to me. I think the main goal of anyone working in spaces just to make that experience was already very stressful, less stressful as a considered space. I'm going to move on a little bit because we've got a few more topics to conduct. Grapple with but I. I think you've set the mark very high for complex questions for designers to solve. You mentioned the idea of corona drifting. which if you asked me to guess what it meant I? Don't think I'd get to what it does mean it's a new term on me, but the sense that lots of companies are producing. Shall We say far fetched ideas about how you can deal with the pandemic? Tell me. Me about the corona drifting why you think is worthy of discussion, so saw this article that a few people had posted and read through it. It's threatened by architect who got fed up of websites like design, boom and design. who were just I guess what she calls putting cheap mock-ups of cooled related design solutions, and these of course for for anyone who follows design press. They're sort of everywhere I. I think the author was just fed up with these ill considered solutions that people had put together really quickly and just creating mock-ups of and saying here's how we're going to solve the problem of social distancing and the idea is that you know these firms aren't really working at this point, so they're just kind of churning out this material to get PR and possible clients once Covid nineteen settles down. Quite an interesting thing to discuss because it sort of like a set of designers who never go past the first idea that they put down on paper, which as an educator myself as I always say, your first idea is your worst idea, so you really have to go through this process of developing ideas and thinking of the context, in which the project lives and so I think that this is the problem with Corrina Griffin is what's happening is everyone someone just has an idea that POPs in their head doesn't really consider anything puts together this small, a little render, and then pushes it through one of these websites. Just also made me think of this obsession. Designers with creating new things rather than looking APP. What is currently in place? Some of the examples you had like a Batman Shields. It was just kind of unreal that this is something that people are actually thinking about so that's.

Obviously, this is my favorite one. We heard from everybody the top episode about their. You know who they want on the list but I guess my question to you as we wrap this up is. Do you think all three needs to be on this list? We are always saying we don't need another restaurant. We don't need another war film. We don't need a scorsese. We don't need this. Do we need three chaplains? No No. No no no, no, no, no I'm just GONNA make myself say no a bunch of times to make it to it. I mean it every time I watch. A Chaplin Film I'm like this is the greatest film that's ever been created. And I feel that way about so much of them, but. I want to try to stick with modern dies. Like maybe never showed me another chaplain film again so I can just stick with modern times. This is the first chaplain film I ever loved is the first time I ever saw the I'm surprised that it's actually this low on the list because I would have assumed if you'd asked me, you know before I started the show, which chaplain rated the highest modern times I mean to me feels like the touch down to the fact that it's in the eighties and really bewildering. Czar. Yeah the I I think this is film, you know this is the film that I think expresses everything he really wanted to say. I do really love the great dictator, but between all of them I would I would pick modern times out of everything. Because it's just it's all here. It's all here and it's wonderfully done, and it's Hilarious I will. I laughed out loud myself here on the cavs, yeah. That's what we're going to do. Another film that has a little bit of a romance and uplifting our last visit with Frank Capra next week for a movie called, it happened one night. was never seen and just based on how I've been enjoying Frank Capra in this podcast. I'm so excited to get into a little bit. But. We have a call to action for you for next week's episode. There are very few romantic comedies on this list, and I think there's something so engaging about them. What's a romantic comedy? You would like to see on this list I think. Let's take Harry met Sally off this debate because we've talked about that a lot I want to hear some other ones other films that really pop for you that you know that feel special and unique I think that this list definitely is missing that genre. So. Hit us with your best ones. Give us a call. At seven, four, seven, six, six, six, five, eight, two, four, seven, four, seven, six, six, five, eight, two, four, and. Amy.

You're not exactly sure what he's trying to say like. was that the only place he could think of to have an actor of color in the film or a and he was just like well. They'd probably be being sent off to prison in this world. Yeah, that's what. He does he does I mean he does literally make that character the butt of the joke. The joke in that scene is that the right is really bumpy, and he keeps putting his, but in her face. Yeah. Interesting I mean. Yeah I just I was. Really fascinated by. This idea that he was so worldly, but yet there are a couple of things in this film better incredibly UNWORLDLY, you know they're. They're incredibly kind of small minded. And you know to think of their this. Say Lazy, essential casting. They said so central casting would make it. Look and I'm not gonNA question what the stereotypes are right, yeah! Or creating the stereotypes I guess he's creating stereotypes. especially. When the film that you're making is making such a statement, you know such a statement about. People you know in how they are just a part of this larger machine, I, also WANNA get into. How I feel this film. And I think the issue. A lot of the Times of Charlie Chaplin is. It feels repetitive. It feels to me like his films. While amazing to watch kind of we go back to similar like set pieces and here the set pieces just continue to change, and they heighten and I didn't feel. The way I felt in previous Chaplin Films Are Mike Okay I get what's going on here. That's funny. Sure it was more than. Just a I. He told the story through many different ways, and I don't know if that was because he was forced to write it so this it had more of a A discernible story so the story was moving forward to just arrest in funny. Moments right because if the rest of the films and city lights definitely is getting towards this, but the other ones kind of just like exist is like okay. Here's a scenario. Let's do like six or seven fun things in this world I don't know this one just caught me and I'm sure there are chaplain people out there going God. Damn, you shut up. That's not true, but that's my impression of it as I feel like this movie really. Kind of deals, something moves it away. Deals with another thing moves it away and like you're. You're getting so many different locations so many different places I. Just found myself constantly engaged by that. I. Hear what you're saying. Because one thing with Chaplin in the trump is that the tramp doesn't change personality your the. TRAMP is a character who like Mickey Mouse Mickey Mouse personality. The trump enters is so we all though the mouse is a great personality. Yeah, what his personality again? Here I'm saving I have pants on. His. Personality and Gun Jin are two of the hardest personalities to lay down. It's like I. Know who those characters are. I cannot tell you how they would react in any given situation. I'll take Donald Duck Edey. Have the like we know that the trump I appreciate that the tramps character in sort of hard ball that he is, he's almost like a bullying golic. He rolls through a scene and things happened to him, don't he gets pushed in a gutter or knocks down pins? You can't really tell, but he just keeps going on. He doesn't. He doesn't really get permanently dented. He's always plucky. I think that's one of the things admire the most about trump is. He never has a lot of self. Pity for himself, and he doesn't ask for the audiences pathos. TRAMP is sitting down in the cafeteria table in prison, and I want to hear this music actually sitting down because I think it is a good way of chaplain using music to underscore plot. Zang like you can literally here in this music that the tramp is a character who is out of step with everybody..

"Over time you know. This is part of mindfulness. It's it does help you to release some of the thoughts not overnight but over time releasing some of the thoughts so that you can help try to choose better thoughts to focus on like I'm going. Okay now I'm going to think about this But so we don't have to believe everything we think and I think that's really important because we do have a tendency like I feel this way. It makes me think this way. It's gotta be true it doesn't have to be And and it does give us back a little bit more control of ourselves. So that's where three different there's two biases that really pop in. I think are so important that deficit bias we are more heavily influenced by negatives that we hear than any positive information or data that we get and think about it. The everyone always remembers the person who criticizes us or one little criticism when thing that went wrong much more than we think about all the Times people say oh good job or you know that was very you know. And and that's deficit by stats. That's not a flaw in us. That's deficit bias. So there's a benefit while knowing that so that you can try not to be as heavily influenced by the negativity but it's also seeking what's actively seeking okay. What's right or what's good at this moment in time? And rather than focusing on what's wrong or bad and the in our brain we have the particular activating system. Just a fancy way of saying it's like when it's like when you're if you're pregnant everywhere you look you see pregnant women. They were there before not those particular but there there you just happen to know when we actively ask ourselves till to look for positive things. What's good in the world?

I mean we think No one thinks more Dak Prescott than Jerry Jones and myself No Mike When he signed on for Hardaway signed on was back. Prescott and You know it's just getting it done. I mean the bigger these deals get hearing all of always found that to be the case in business. The bigger the dollars get the harder they get. We believe in our track record or getting player signed. I totally believe. We'll get doc signed at the right number. That's good for Dak. Good for the cowboys. Good for this team right. That was Stephen Jones with sap. Last night emphatic. That a deal will get done with doc. Louis riddick joins US Louis. Great to see you but southern Steve. I'm starting with you here because you're cowboys are saying all the right things but they're still no deal happening. So what's really going on? Well what's really going on Molly and Louis and Max Kelvin's that these guys? I'm talking about Jerry. Stephen Jones have engaged in conduct business practices that have made them successful monetarily speaking certainly in marketing and obviously overall business but when it comes to winning football games these are the kind of things that have gotten in their way repeatedly and this is just the latest example of their foolhardiness. Now let's analyze this situation for what it is Louis Riddick. 'cause I understand that? You're keenly aware of these things even more so than. I am last time I checked in. The world is the quarterback position. You don't pay that guy yet but to play the running back ahead problems in the past gave your bad salacious headlines. Compromised Dallas Cowboy brand that we know love what happens you give him. Fifty million guaranteed nine five million dollar contract all depend demarcus Lawrence. You Got Him. All right. You Pay Jalen Smith. I'm not opposed to any of that stuff. You took care of him. Yup Grad cornerback position. Your side a bunch of dudes but to take care of everybody but the quarterback. Oh by the way. Got Rid of that head coach. Who played the role in his ineffectiveness? Arrived you WANNA point to what it did. Last year. I mean group of forty nine hundred two yards through for third touchdown. Just eleven interceptors career-wise complete sixty five point eight percent of his bats and he's taking it to the playoffs two years out of the walk. He's got a winning record. All right and by the way the season before that allows sticks games. If I remember correctly I believe that particular season that was about fifty six times. I remember correctly somehow someway Jerry Jones and Steven Jones continue to ask this young man for the house. This man continues to show up. He's a leader. He's a model citizen. He represents the Franchisees. The face of the franchise the whole Colin Kaepernick situation. He marched locks that with Jerry Jones when that could have been a dicey situation. He didn't sit up there and disrupt in it. Think this man has been a model citizen. He has before it hasn't been as that. The defense didn't show up. You GotTa Rookie Offense Coordinator last year the previous year. You got him sex with a six dollars Tom. Tommy you have asked this young man to step up and represent this credit todd and then all of a sudden you come to us and you say you're gonNA take care of him. Damage your might do it but should have been taken care of them. And as far as I'm concerned about them Dak Prescott. I gotTA modifying attitude with you for the future. I don't know how good I- relationship is going to be moving so it but I think I think he'll get over it eventually. Once that check comes in was that check the. Da Patrick Mahomes. But he wants to get paid like. He's Patrick Mahomes. But that creaking sound you're hearing is the cowboys getting ready to fold lettuces. I told you this is going to happen if you look at the Joneses. What is Jerry Jones said about? Every every one of the best deals he ever made. He said all of my best deals. I was told overpaid at the time. He didn't say I was told I over paid at the time. Because Jerry Jones does not make his money on the margins he will fold in that kind of scenario. He makes his money with pink. When you buy the Dallas cowboys and takes a big imagination. Not like Chintzy on the margins so so I always. And that's why they folded all these player negotiations. I keep bringing up Zeke. You spent the fourth overall pick in the draft on them. That's an investment of resources for sure. And then he if anything outperformed where you draft him at least at least matched where you drafted gave you a premium of other other. Guys were drafted later. Lived up to it. We're running your offense through them for a while then. It came time to pay him. They didn't want to because it really wasn't time to pay him yet. Even Z can hold held.

"Is there robbed or in a long time? Nba Executive. Who played a key? Role in assembling. That Dream Team explained that he never talked to Michael Jordan about Isiah before the break. We just heard Stephen. A. And Jay Williams say that magic played a key role in Isaiah. Not Being on the Dream Team next Kellerman. The floor is yours. Well there are two things one. I said really what this comes down to the late news inclusion on the team because they chose to take a collegiate athlete and later was the most famous and most successful of the collegiate players at the time. That's really who Isaiah should've gone instead of you. Guys are just insisting that that. There's no competition. No comparison between Isaiah in Stockton. In fact that's very close now. Ultimately I agree with you by a hair that it's Zeya 'cause I think his peak he was a little closer to a dominant superstar. You could build a team around Isaiah little I prefer Stockton at a much longer. Career at his peak was nearly as good any many more great seasons than Isaiah did so at doubling his assist total guard. Carl Malone Scorer. Okay but I had guys come in the Pistons team. Would you compare that Karl Malone that that's not the point just having another superstar player is not going to inflate your assist totals by one hundred percent? In addition he was a much more efficient scorer and a better defender by you know he was he was all MBA. I defense team a lot of times. I say yeah. It wasn't the point is this and also all the ATM. Stockton made many more. But the point is this Stockton Isaiah ultimately. I've I'd have to also go with Isaiah by air. The issue with Jordan magic versus Jordan is what has also been reported. Is that Michael Jordan at the sign off on the final roster so however you get there and again later instead of Isaiah really. That's the one on swap out Jordan at the side off on the final roster so if he's signing no one and not on the team ultimately what is that of the Max you know On the case and please give Michael Jordan. I WANNA feel a camera for this. I want to be on camera for this. You know when we talk about boxing. I know what thing too about boxing but I also noticed step to hell back when Mac starts talking boxes because they are levels to this okay and when you sit up there and you just want to summarily ignore the fact that a vast majority of Stockton success as a point guard. Nba is primarily. Because Karl Malone and J Briggs up. There was no calm alone. Under Detroit Pistons Offensively. There was a pick and roll being run to that degree with a John Stockton -fensive proficiency was directly related to calm alone. You just want to ignore that this is moments when I feel your basketball court should be strapped and you should be putting a vote in locked away until the basketball season's over stuff like that. That's not point. Would you argue with that? That the president to Actually League Max Max. We let you speak. We did let you speak the only making off the only reason we brought up stockton with Isaiah. We know that what you said about Christian late we get that. Nobody's disputing that. Max but you brought up stockton compared to ask Zia. Anybody were to honor. Those is yours. I can't believe you missed it with those beetlejuice is. I can't believe that you could sit up here saying buy stock style. Stock this Jay. I'll give it to her. Shot Stockton Shoot Wide. Open jump shots. Stockton was not looking to pass almost all the time so a lot of times people laid off him. He got a lot more open and uncontested shots than you would realize because people were stuck descending upon Carl Malone. All of those things factor. I've never had that luxury. Never had that luxury but that would be bad there are other talk not not there are addicting role partners with superstars in the NBA in history. I understand where you would inflate it a little bit. By the way ultimately I'll take Isaiah by a little but that does not literally eleven all. Nba League that does not explain all NBA defensive selection. That does not explain open jumped out. There does not explain that much more proficient. Go Ahead J. Shooting the ball and to that a few if you want hold on hold on hold on. Stockton was averaging cable half decade. Go ahead Jack's good. Where where would you rank? Where would you rank? Karl Malone as release a greatest all NBA players. Would it be top? Twenty five top fifty five power. He's a top five power forward. Say for me. I think he's more than five. I think he's through okay Tim so he's tough. Talk about how important Kevin McHale. Okay I kept McKay and let me explain. Arkley and melodious close Novitsky Garnett milona closed a Lotta guys close okay. I'm not going out direction. A when I'm saying to you is from somebody who's played the position. Do you know how hard that was? And that wasn't the way guys player now. We see a ton of PR. Every single possession the best combination at that was stocked alone. Because why because Carl Malone can knock down at fifteen twenty footer like that so I was on the block. He forced double teams and elbow every single time so every time every time. John came off that screen the big was. You have to stay with Carmelo. You couldn't just help. I'm not saying that that that doesn't take away from how Rafik John Stockton is John. Stockton is Great. Jonathan's great all fame like Isaiah. Thomas had Karl Malone on his team to run that set every single time you'd be talking about a different stats for as he was doing it without one of the top. Three top five greatest power to ever play the game to sit there and say that. That's a little bit of plain agree. Board Little Hood did Isaiah. Thomas have a great coaching great teammates. Yes or NO DENNIS FROM YEAH. It was a great hustler player. Joe Dumars was up. Big Time Guy Defensive player knocking on nobody in that team.

It's four game against the Utah Jazz match. We we let you speak and you want to Basketball Gardens and we let you do. Most of the talking and John Stockton was the was the office. I just finished telling you when it comes to boxing. I'll lay off did not. I did say that in other words. What I'm saying is often every time you open your mouth about basketball. It's clear this. Hr expertise talking about all right. I've been Carmello the office between those two. That's what their offense was predicated on They had Thomas add. It wasn't about them offensively Thomas Office. It was stopped. The two Maloney Uta Isaiah. Thomas was surrounded by a bunch of defenders Hustle. Guys rough riders. And what have you? He was the face of that franchise and the face of the office. He was the number one option. There has never been a game let alone a season where John Stockton was the number one option. It's ridiculous or giving the evidence you are giving the evidence for Isaiah Thomas which I subscribed to ultimately got him by the hair he was lying. And how you guys are acting like Stockton's not in the conversation. Why was it stockton made five all NBA first teams defensively averaging three steals a game? That also Karl Malone he was shooting by the way stockton could shoot Code Pink. Let me it. Somebody's telling you. How Great Lead. Franson elite elite steals players one of the elite steals players in the NBA. Was Alan Iverson. Alan Iverson will be the first to tell you he could guard anybody.

"Ziprecruiter DOT COM Slash Meena Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so I'm GonNa read you a couple of facts about about this game and I say read because I obviously don't have them memorized this matchup. I don't think so dramatic. I I like it suspense over here. I'm dying right now. Feed me the stats mean. Oh boy okay. This is the first divisional a match up between teams that are three and our better since two thousand four. It's been fifteen years since this has happened your God I was trying to. I've been stepping on a lot of the pregnant pauses. I wanted to do and really build this up because I genuinely shocked since they have seized was formed. It's the four-time that this division is even had to three teams forget that they've been matching up right. last time was in two thousand thirteen with the Patriots and the dolphins how things have changed but but but this is this is a beast mode matchup. It's a pair of beasts. Oh defenses. I've been hammering how much I love both of these defenses really since the summer and they have not disappointed in any anyway I mean we should start with the Patriots defense. Because what they're doing is potentially historic. It's I guess for the Patriots who began the dynasty as a team largely led by defense that Tom Brady stepped into and ushered to that first super bowl seeing the dominance across the board their number one and everything right now everything they are number one in actual everything right now and they're secondary. Stefan Gilmore and we've known he's been great but as having one of those real ascension type seasons it seems yes I mean so last touchdown was the AFC championship blue. Cheese is your score more points on defense. I think going into the season I look I I remember you can go back and check the I said. I thought there would be good. I didn't think they would be this this good. I mean the funny thing about the Patriots Defense last year. Mike is they actually weren't good. During the regular season they were awesome in the playoffs but during the day like turned it up in a big away they actually finish sixteenth delay last season and they were really bad this season before and when you look at the changes in the roster. I don't think I thought they would continue to be good because I I still like a lot of talent coaching obviously secondary but you know they lost. Trey flowers been okay and added Michael Bennett I mean Jamie Collins suddenly is like living his best life again i. I don't think anyone just again based on the personnel moves could event is depicted this no the Jamie Collins thing the more I look at it seems like one of the all-time finesse jobs of all time climbed by New England who let that Guy Walking get paid by Cleveland because they weren't going to do it and now he comes back and performing largely how you would expect a guy that wants received a large payday play pay to play that position all the belly rubs in the world all the plays in the backfield. It's been incredible. He's been electric. I think going into this year. We'll talk with the other side of the poll on moment but you would have thought okay secondary is good. Maybe the pass rush will struggle they're currently second and sack. Gratiot Vine Jacksonville they have nine players in their front seven with at least three past disruptions. It's it's free and then we didn't didn't even play in the last game. He had a baby or his wife had a baby or his partner for mom. Yes so Jalen Ramsey. My favorite thing is a he's got all these ailments of having a baby himself and then to go but in any case yeah so. It's just obscene what they're doing and then you know. I like this bills offense and we can talk about sort of what I liked about them. I've loved a few things but they have not been confronted with a defense like this so far no and I think the biggest problem with the Patriots defense that it posed for so many people is kind of amorphous right like you've got guys that we all just described it and this was true. During the playoff run what we saw as their pass rush came alive it was his design in the middle it was games and stunts in addition to bringing extra players with a lot of guys around the same body type like Jamie Collins Jonathan Simon Kyle Van Noy. You've you've got all these sort of DNA outside linebacker body types that populate the middle of this defense and make you work extra hard up front to make sure all right if I'm setting protection yeah. I've got to identify the guys that we're going to call the down linemen the known rushers you've got to track all these bodies all over the place so they have so many veteran players that are so savvy. Kyle Van Noy probably the poster child of probably the best guy in that group upfront who can do so many of those different things that make them a problem. Especially cleaners pass rush so the cliche about that group is in the Patriots in general is they take your weapon. The the bills best weapon is in my opinion Josh Allen but not necessarily as a passer. I think that the Patriots are going to they're going to sell out to stop him from running but I would not be surprised if they spy on him in a pretty big way absolutely and with the personnel they've got that is I think an easier task because of all bodies just described right. Yes absolutely I mean so watching China's last bills game Mike. I was super impressed by Allen in the first half. Actually I think I tweeted like wow josh islands making a lot. The short passes he did not make last year. He's always been used a monster athlete. you'd have just truly truly rambler but but he makes some bad decisions he throws too hard is touches always perfect especially in the short intermediate stuff but in the first half gail over the last game I actually I was really impressed by him. In the second half he turned into Hero Ball Josh Allen Mattel the bengals got back into it and you know he he makes some of the mistakes that you saw him making his rookie season not taking sacks throwing it away into coverage and I think if he can limit some of those bad decisions coupled with this defense. They can really stay in it. Yeah I think that's that's the thing and we saw this. The way they loaded up off season was sort of designed to marry with this defense in bringing over the coal Beazley's of the world guys that you could get it Zeh Jones. We know the guy that John Brown who came over also all of these things to try and make sure that you just make lay ups in this offense. That's what most of the design seems to be a and when they're looking downfield is when Josh Allen starts to scramble starts to roll out. Those seem to be the only spots. I've seen where a lot of the deep plays happened when everything breaks down and I really liked the offense itself. I think Brian debut. This is the second year as a coordinator. I believe from Obama. You know he's done a great job. I noticed a lot more creativity misdirection in this last game. then Baldwin tweeted heap he plotted early down pass rate to this morning and you people would be shocked. I think to hear that the bills were ranked third the cardinals and the chiefs on on on passing on early down which we honored twitter love so doing a lot of really good things. I think they've got a limited mistakes and I think if they do because this defense is really good. They have a shot at this now. The new wing of I mean on the other side of the ball I guess the New England offense has looked unstoppable but there's some injury issues. Obviously the offensive line is he's banged up. Josh Gordon Eshelman about her to various times during the last game that said I fully really do not have any debt. We say all that is like a caveat of nothing that we believe is really. GonNa Change about this but I guess that's kind of the ultimate testament to England. Though is what did we say that the first couple of weeks where you had no rob Gronkowski and so you saw team run fewer no more no tight end sets and one game they did almost all of last year you saw in the last game a ton of bolden at running back like this you on the field a ton of time for them allowing them to do some mm sneaky things in protection because that offensive lines kind of banged up right now my large adult son. Isaiah winners succumb to yet another injury I mean it just devastatingly said friend of the show Marshall Newhouse out there getting a job for them at tackle certainly excited for him but you've got to kind of masks some of those right now in this patriots offense does that better than anyone they they do better than anyone but obviously that changes the nature of the offense right when you really can't count on them in the same way. It's it's. It's funny whereas solar earlier like God God bless Marshall for landing there like what a what a wonderful place to be an offensive lineman a new England but but the the running game has weirdly not been good Sony Michelle your other small your small. He's averaging two point four yards per carry now now. It's been interesting. I I think a lot of it's on him but I did. I was curious. I was kind of digging into it. He's he's averaging one point six seven yards before contact versus. REXBURG has three point five four obviously some of that is in the usage of it but it feels feels like some of it is on him but a lot of on the block as well well. A lot of it is a change in the way they've used him so I I noticed it and I wrote it down when I was watching this last one now part of this is the injuries that the Patriots have sustained at fullback which unfortunately Devlin going to be out for them. Skip point now for a while but we remember last year it was really Sony Michelle and there fullback tied to the hip together and what you saw in this last game was them touchdown. That's only Michelle. Scored was from the gun. You saw a few more of those sprinkled in addition to him quite frankly just not getting the volume that were used to and so. I think it's this year trying to make it a little less predictable with how they're gonNA use it. Some of it we mentioned is personnel in that and and using the running back passing his extension of the run game there you saw that a lot with rex burkhead an bolden both them getting more looks out of the backfield but I think for Sony. It's going to be interesting to see how that used to change because last year so much of it was that to back with the fullback one tight end personnel grouping where they made it obvious and they remastered the obvious in that year exactly yeah I. I think that this patriots offense is going to probably probably try to run it a fair amount on the bills defense because the secondary is so good I'm not not necessarily that means. They're going to be testing them. Deepen on the outside a lot especially especially with white it's funny. Davies White and I earlier alluded to how underrated the rest of the secondary is a high Jordan. We don't talk about them enough and how incredible all of us DB's coach Sean McDermott is white hasn't had massive like you know turnover numbers but he's barely targeted quarterbacks. The backs have just stayed far away from him the last couple of years and I personally I kind of expect New England to do the same yeah I think I mean again in addition to on the other side of the Cliche of taking away what you do best New England's going to adjust and just not give your best player a chance to impact the game like that hat now putting it on the bills front seven do it do so at your own risk but I think we see plenty of those running backs. We cy just again. It just seems like they always adjust what they need to do. Even with the injuries outside I think they find a way to sort of dink and dunk their way through this one yeah right. There aren't really significant weaknesses on this bills defense speaking of by the way not showing up in the numbers yesterday. I tweeted about Aaron Donald Pass rush rate which is hilarious. Go look at it. Pass rusher win rate is a statistic are ESPN stats and Info folks come up with and and they have the on on the other side of the ball as well but I was.

"At times trubisky would still make enough for you would make a couple of those really great throws and then he would make plays with his feet. I think to keep drives live and sort or just hold on one thing. I noticed two of our this year. Mike an I regretfully did not pull up the numbers but I'm pretty sure they corroborate what I'm thinking. He's not really running as much. I wonder what that's about yeah. It's interesting to you thought because we see and I think an interesting com for this. Josh Allen who I know we're GONNA get to at the bills you see a lot of designed runs for Josh Allen taking advantage of the gifts and I'm surprised the bears offense hasn't made more use of that with Mitch just because it's something something he is gifted at. He's truly gifted as a runner and when you're trying to build the rest of it you figure they would have leaned on that a little more. You know I think in the Washington Shington game. It looked a lot to me more like let yes. He didn't run but you definitely saw what you saw. Last season which Nagy had a lot of success scheming guys open making things easy for trubisky helping him diagnose defenses. I believe with the assistance scheme. lot of quick passes a lot of cross. There's some stuff you saw last year where he just doesn't have to do as much but you know he. He's clearly clearly the limiting factor on this team which continues to have one of the best defense in the NFL and I feel like what is he's in your three right near three of them into with Nagy. Is it okay my question to you before we get to this matchup and whether they can beat the vikings because it's not when you have this defense you can win any game. NPR's cheaper if he continues to play at this level to the rest of the season. What do you do you this offseason. That's the problem right is his year threes. You've got him another year and then the fifth year option potentially which we know how cost cost effective give that tends to be for teams but I have to imagine it correct me if I'm wrong. It seems like Matt Nagy is starting to show frustration. I it seems he's like it seems like you're starting to see a guy who recognizes all right and we heard rumblings of this throughout training camp in the offseason that this wasn't necessarily getting to the place in year to in this offense that Matt Nagy. I think expected it to be so I I just don't know of teams are in the business of even now with you know the rookie wage scale already already being almost a decade into effect if teams are in the business of pull and plugs of pulling the plug on a rookie before that you know four years up right yeah. What's I mean it from a cost perspective. Obviously you know having a quarterback in a contract is the most advantageous thing in the NFL but your window with his defense is now and so oh it gets and they got their weapons. You know they got poor. Robinson Ra like I I. It's just got to be so frustrating because I remember number at the after the playoffs last year. I said you know if they had just gotten average to above average. quarterback play seemed goes to the Super Bowl and bears fans. Were really upset with me because Jersey had that last quarter which was really good right but I believe that I watched this team and I believe that I feel like man. Stevens is so good as coaches so good. These weapons are so good if if they just had like a again they don't even need like a great quarterback and I look at them. Mike against his vikings team. which is I think a bit more balanced and I don't know the Vikings? Look better to me then I can do. I think well first off the vikings rushing attack. I mean what Dalvin seven cook. Finally healthy has done on that offense has been nothing short of spectacular and both of these. I mean I think you look at their offense and say so far as talented they are kirk cousins and has been the limiting factor for them now and not it's not to the extreme at times yeah yeah no. I think you're right at times obviously had that when real bad game you know he has had to do so little that it's almost hard to evaluate. I think Alvin Cook has been incredible he's he's averaging approximately forty five yards per attempt which doesn't seem tenable. That's a proclamation. Don't do my math. This is going to be a challenge now and this defense for him. I think some of the statistics in some of the things that the Vikings are doing on offense are not tenable. I think he just like five times but specifically so cook. A lot of his carries are coming on first down on but he's been extremely successful. He's averaging over ten yards a carry on second long. That's probably not tenable yeah well even as much as we come into see me love the marriage of him and outside zone and Kubiak. It's great but like that's just not a thing you can keep up and I do wonder Mike you know that comes down to Earth a little bit and look he is an amazing run and amazing talent whether this passing offense can compensate yeah I. I think that's GonNa be an interesting part of what they've had there because you're right. It hasn't been a large sample size of the passing offense in two thousand nineteen. We certainly seen what kirk cousins and Theon in digs did last year. You've got Rudolph Irv Smith Junior at tight end there so it's not like you're short on weapons. We just haven't seen the used the probably the chief concern and we saw us some of this manifest itself against Falcons defense that wasn't as strong on the edges so you could get a Lotta those outside zone rushing attempts but grady jared on the inside gave Garrett bradberry barrier and that young interior all they could handle and it's not like Akiem Hicks is GonNa make life any easier. The difference is you've got Leonard Floyd and Khalil Mack on the outside who are going to be able to hold up on that edge a lot better. You've got a faster linebacking core. They're going to have to like you're just not going to be able to rip off yards like that. Against this defense I should I think Hicks is play but he did missed practice. Yes Wednesday so you know. He got hurt in the last one but I think he's GonNa. I think he's GonNa play and Yeah I think you're right but but you know I continue to believe this team is strong playoff contender if not for the division for the wild card because they're so balanced because this defense so so far has not regressed from how they're playing at the end of last season. They had a very uneven season last year. I thought they were talented but thin in some spots spots but that said you know like guys like Harrison Smith who honestly didn't look great at a lot of times last year. He's looked incredible. Obviously in ninety crushed it. had a pick and then Eric Hendricks another guy who jumped out to me in that last game the linebacker their linebacking core has looked fast again like for for you know the most simple analysis possible but when this defense was at its best certainly you had an efforts in griffin from that slowly coming back into form obviously dealt with a lot there deal hunters really been the man there last year and and still going into this year but that linebacking corps was the difference Prince when they were great a couple of years ago and it seems to be back in that form again yeah every in the past Russia's there the second roads is another guy who had who struggled a lot last season listen at times Xavier Rosen and he's looked better spots and we'll see again very early they just. They look very balanced so we'll see again like I. I'm very curious to to see this. I don't think trubisky's and have a lot of luck against his defense but I am not that confident. The Vikings things offense as currently constituted the way they've been playing football is going to shred Chicago's very good defense either and I think this game could be a little bit of a grind fest. I I'm taking the Vikings though yeah I'm taking the Vikings as well definitely hammering the under in this one by the way I it just worth noting because I had this as we talk about the bears defense defense and some of the parts that were productive did underrated before shot at the Ha Ha Clinton dix coming off from Washington revenge games. Yes he was great. That's a great great point. Yes SHADAW WE'RE GONNA talk about Patriots bills but first hiring can be a slow process cafe L..

"The circle of cars and trucks surrounding are seeing the crowd of officers. That were near the body disperse. Until it's just Lindsey myself and the officer that brought us back to the body. Everyone just vanished. It's eerily quiet now. I've been a little too busy slipping on my heavy duty blue surgical gloves to take a look at the body. Well that's not entirely true. I haven't taken a look at the body because I'm terrified of what I was about to see. I'm thirteen. I don't have any experience with genital mutilation so I'm not sure how I'll respond seeing it up close. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea. I hope I don't faint when I get up. Close I've fallen blood once my gloves. Her on the stretcher has been lowered. Lindsey grabs disaster pouch and we walked closer to the body. She throws me a small water. Plastic out of pocket and says put these on their shoe coverings. Lindsey watches me. Slip THEM OVER MY LEATHER SOLED Steve Madden Lace Up. Cap Does and tells me you don't want to get anything on your shoes and take it home with you. Your dog will lick the blood off the souls. What Yak given the amount of blood leaking out of this man's body on the pavement? I'm glad she brought these. I don't want my dog lapping up. This guy's blood off my shoes. Carter's a good way. He wouldn't mess with them. I think seeing all the blood around the body I think to myself. How are they going to clean this up? Surely they can't just leave it here once we take the body right. I'm standing over the body with Lindsey. Now our feet covered in plastic or both in his blood. There's a faint chemical smell coming off the blood or the body. Although it's barely cutting through the smell of the cheeseburgers which smells less appetizing. The closer I get to the body. This is my first look at our foreign exchange student friend and the site just about knocked me out. I exhale sharply. Lindsey looks at me concerned I take in my surroundings about six feet away from me as a medium sized black man with designer wool pants pulled around his ankles. Laying near a storm sewer on the side of Lake Street. Shoes are still on. That's creepy do you suppose. He was dead when his pants were slid off. There's so much blood on his body and on the ground it's difficult to tell what happened. Clearly there giant stab wounds and slices all over his body. The man's navy polo shirt had so many holes in it. It's impressive stayed on while his body was being pushed out of the car. I look at the man's right hand and see stab wounds on his palms and slices on his fingers. Did he try and grab the knife? When do you suppose he gave up? Fighting was it before or after his pants were off inevitably. My eyes are drawn to the man's paint us or what I think it's being penis again. There is so much blood. It's hard to make out details. But his pianist definitely had deep slices an and was barely recognizable as a human penis. Lindsey must have seen me staring in horror trying not to imagine what it would be like to have. My penis repeatedly sliced by a random stranger. She tells me to grab the man's feet. This was nice of her. Normally veteran funeral directors. Make the new guy do the heavy lifting but Lindsay Catella was having difficulty processing the situation. So she did me a solid and took the heavier bloodier end. Lindsey opens the Disaster Pouch and places in next to the body she grabs the shoulders starts moving the body and finally get a look at the man's face for the first time my mouth must have hit the ground. I've never seen anything like this before. Sure at someone's face but aside from a Barau line nose and mouth. This man's face had more in common with the deflated basketball covered in broken teeth and ground. Meat this man had the thickest black is coagulated blood coming out of his eyes mouth and however many stab wounds were in his face and head. You heard me right. This guy must have had a dozen stab wounds to his head. It's weird you don't ever see that in movies. Everyone gets stabbed in the body but in the real world I can assure you there are apparently no MPA guidelines for knife-wielding killers had stabbings. Are Real thing the overpowering smell of hot and fresh cheeseburgers mixed with the site of this man's brutalized face? Made me wish I was at the beach with a Mandawa right now in made me wish I was anywhere or maybe I'm just hungry for a cheeseburger. Edano no one Lindsay says all right. Let's move him. I grabbed the man's ankles. His lower legs and feet are in perfect non stabbed condition. The Sky could be shorts model if you to do well if he wasn't dead. It's kind of weird that his lower legs weren't touched at all right. The person who did this was pretty thorough. So I'm surprised. He didn't shoot for full body coverage maybe he did. And I just can't tell we put the body in the bag and ZIP it up as we're moving the body to the stretcher. I see a firefighter in full uniform. Connecting a fire hose to a hydrant Lindsey points at them and says they can write a hose. This place down. Oh so that's what they do with all that blood we load our body into the back of the van. Get in and buckle ourselves up for our trip back to the funeral home. Wow it's only nine thirty Lindsay. Says she points across the street and says hot and fresh meals pretty good. You WanNa take our buddy to get a burger. She laughs secretly. I'm disappointed that she wasn't serious. I could really go for a burger. We found out later that weekend that our foreign exchange student was actually stabbed seventy seven times. The entire left side of his face was crushed by a weapon or instrument of some sort and to top it off. The tip of his penis was cut off. And his scrotum was crudely ripped open by a serrated blade and it was all done by a complete stranger as far as. I know they never found the person who did it. They're probably still driving around in that ninety six. Lancer. It's Labor Day night. I'm getting ready for bed. I'm brushing my teeth and thinking about my presentation tomorrow. I can't talk about this murder. I want to. But it's not really. Pg I'd get enough for sure or Mrs Jones. May actually snap and staff may seventy eight times for telling my classmates about my weird encounter with a dead foreign exchange student right by the hot and fresh this weekend. I don't know what to do. It's Tuesday morning. I was awake six minutes before my mom came in and woke me Of being completely unsure of what I was going to present my class in eight period had me tightly wound from the jump so when my mom came in and open my blinds I was a little less than pleasant my stomach was in Nazi? Entire ride to school. What can I talk about movies? I saw or music. I listened to over the summer that fun trip. I took to the amusement park. How about genital mutilation just kidding? That wouldn't go over. Mrs Jones already hates me because of my awfulness last year so I need to think fast. Otherwise I'm going to be completely fucked for the next one hundred and eighty days until high school since I can't tell the story from this weekend. Maybe I'll just talk about what it's like working at the funeral home. Yeah like day to day. That's interesting right now. It's boring. I walked into the cafeteria just after six period feeling completely sick walking up to the lunch line I always usually pretty excited for launch because like I mentioned before we always carry out since we're a small Catholic middle school. There isn't really enough funding for anything. Not to mention whatever money it would take to properly staff maintain a cafeteria kitchen so essentially we get baths food. Every day as I get closer to the front of the line where the parent volunteers handing out lunch. I get a waft of whatever it is. They're passing out. It's of familiar delicious. Smell I feel my saliva. Glands activate tangle and then the foreign exchange students crushed Izhak at pops into my head for a moment at breath classmates standing in front of me turns us. We're both inching our way forward in line and ask. What are you giving your presentation on before I can even open my mouth? She says my family and I went to the billboard mansion over the summer you know the place where they filmed richie rich sliding forward barely listening. I think to myself I'm fucked. I don't know I sternly say to my classmate abruptly ending her blabbering stupid fucking rich mansion. I get.

"A wave of relief washes over me when I imagined myself giving the most riveting speech in class until Lindsey starts telling me about the first bike accident she worked. Cut The fuckers clean off. She laughed okay, so clearly if I'm going to present anything like this I have to be a little bit more delicate than Lindsey's being right now. I really can't start the year off with an and trip to the principal's office. We turn the corner now. We're on lake, street. Heading towards third all I can see is a sea of police and fire truck lights. There must have been seven cop cars and. And two firetrucks, well one and a half they have the fire marshals F. Three fifty out alongside one of the big engines today they're blocking off the crime scene with their vehicles. Lindsay says under breath if it's a bike accident, why do they need a fire truck blocking lookie Loos, trying to sneak peek seems like it would be a little more cost effective for the city to bring a sheet to cover the body rather than. Than a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fire truck at the moment, Lindsey and I are both trying to figure out what we're in for. The brakes on the vans squeak as we slow to a stop about ten meters from the barricade of cars in this neighborhood. It's probably on a bike. He might be your grant Lindsay says putting the car in Park and making sure to make direct eye contact with me. Just try not to freak. Freak out and tell me if it's too much. Okay? All right I say knowing full well Lindsey could sense how nervous I was. I think she's being sweet right now or she's like the legit worried. This is GonNa Fuck my brain up, probably kid, and even thought of that. What if it's somebody I know? My heart starts to speed up as I think about all of my neighborhood, friends with bicycles heads exploding through windshield simultaneously. Then I imagine my own head and body, being crushed by a pickup truck after being mowed over on my burnt or injured track BMX bike. What sound is a human head? Make when it's crushed by a truck tire. Lindsey and I get out and pull the stretcher out of the back of the van for a moment I'm distracted by the smell of grilled cheese bergers coming from the drive through restaurant across the street, hot and fresh. Even though it's just after nine am I find myself craving, hot and cheeseburger. Would it be weird to ask Lindsey to pop through the drive through with a dead body that seems like it would be professionally frowned upon I better. Not Ask plus I remember seeing hot and fresh on our schools lunch menu this week. We only have delivery. It's weird and expensive, but I think I can wait a couple of days for a burger. And I walked toward to friendly police officers leaning against one of the barrier cars. It's lights on. It's an older crown. VIC fresh paint job. Though must have been wrecked in recycled. We were interrupting what sounded like the officers discussing Labor Day weekend plans I can't be sure though I just heard words like hot dog and Lake and made an assumption you to with the funeral home. One of the officers asked Lindsay says Yeah Yasser points to me and says Jesus Christ what is he fifteen Lindsey smiles and responds thirteen. He's the owner son is getting broke into the business. Well. He's in for a doozy. The officer chuckles. What am I and for a doozy? You Know My dad's sent me here. He knows what it is. He wouldn't send me if he didn't think I could handle it and as nervous as I am. A part of me is overflowing with excitement I pulled weeds and clean light fixtures all summer. Hoping something like this would happen. It might be a little tacky to say out loud, but I'm ready to see something. See on TV. Lindsay says to the officers. We're not really sure what's going on here. Call come out I. Smile and nod Lindsey with confidence letting her know that I'm not. GonNa. Let her down however awful. This bike accident is the author starts describing the crime scene well. We've got a twenty two year old dead foreign exchange student. Thank. It's not one of my friends or a kid Jesus never build a bike again. The officer breaks my train of thought with a sense I wasn't planning on hearing that day or any other day. For that matter we think are victim has been stabbed about ninety times all over his body. No one's on its back. Though the left side of his face is completely caved in and to top it off, his pants were pulled down, and his genitals were mutilated. Holy Shit thought this was a bike accident. The officer continues with his information. Someone said they saw him fall out. Out of a black nineteen ninety-six Mitsubishi Lancer or a car of a similar make Lindsey Chimes. Then so they stabbed him and bludgeoned him in the car, and then pushed him out. It appears so the author walks between two of the barrier, police cars and waves as forward to follow him with the stretcher I was excited before, but I'm afraid to see what's on the other side of the police car barrier after the officers description, but the smell of hot and fresh keeps wafting into my nostrils and takes my mind off about to do and what I'm about to see. Lindsey and I finally see what's on the other side of the police cars. The first thing I noticed was the amount of police officers that we couldn't see from the other side of the makeshift car perimeter. There must have been seven or eight uniformed officers, and three or four detectives and slacks and Blazers huddled around a body surrounded by a pool of blood. Blood a very large pool of the deepest prettiest read you can imagine. The color of the blood is such a striking shade, especially next to the gray pavement and grass on the curb, as the officers scatter upon our arrival, the dead body. There's no sheet. No covering Lindsey whispers to me. They must have just finished investigating. They haven't even covered the body out. Shrug my shoulders. I wouldn't know either way as we wheel. The stretchered deeper into the circle of cars and trucks surrounding are seeing the crowd of officers that were near the body disperse until it's just Lindsey myself and the officer that brought us back to the body. Everyone just vanished. It's eerily quiet now. I've been a little too busy slipping on my heavy duty, blue surgical gloves to take a look at the body. Well, that's not entirely true. I haven't taken a look at the body because I'm terrified of what I was about to see. I'm thirteen. I don't have any experience with genital mutilation, so I'm not. Not sure how I'll respond seeing it up close. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea I. Hope I. Don't faint when I get up close at fallen blood once my gloves. Her on the stretcher has been lowered. Lindsey grabs. Disaster Pouch and we walked closer to the body. She throws me a small water plastic out of pocket and says put these on their shoe coverings Lindsey watches me slip them over. My Leather Soled Steve Madden lace, up cap does and tells me you don't want to get anything on your shoes and take it home with you. Your dog will lick the blood off the souls what? Given, the amount of blood leaking out of this man's body on the pavement. I'm glad she brought these I. Don't want my dog lapping up this guy's blood off my shoes. Carter's a good way. He wouldn't mess with them. I think seeing all the blood around the body. I think to myself, how are they going to clean this up? Surely they can't just leave it here once we take the body right. Right, I'm standing over the body with Lindsey now our feet covered in plastic, or both in his blood. There's a faint chemical smell coming off the blood or the body, although it's barely cutting through the smell of the cheeseburgers, which smells less appetizing. The closer I get to the body. This is my first look at our foreign exchange student friend and the site just about knocked me out I exhale sharply. Lindsey looks at me. Concerned I take in my surroundings about six feet away from me as a medium sized black man with designer, wool pants pulled around his ankles, laying.
