Speaker 1 (00:03):
It's a podcast called twenty five.

Speaker 2 (00:06):
Whist Stockings and they are were a whizz.

Speaker 1 (00:10):
So yeah, it's too bad, but what did you expect.

Speaker 2 (00:13):
It's a podcast called twenty five.

Speaker 1 (00:15):
Whist Souls Twine, blow It, thank You. Coming up, we'll
have Indiana Beat writer Scott Agnes talking about the fever
and Kaitlyn Clark and he covers the pacers and the
fever and he's been doing an awesome job of covering
Kaitlyn Clark and so you'll hear that in a bit.
It's it's so irritating she had made the Olympic team,
but it's so good for her too because now again

(00:39):
she's the victim. She did get screwed. And then one
of the reports that we talked about with Scott two
was that it said like a couple uh senior level
players on the team didn't want her to be a
part of the team because it may create some drama
from her fans whenever she doesn't get to play as much.
What was hilarious was it mayate drama, which is completely

(01:01):
a scenario that they've made up. And then also, since
when do we not allow people places because of what
their fans say and think? Like, why was that even
incorporated into the discussion. So, yeah, obviously I've been affected
greatly by this.

Speaker 3 (01:17):
Was your weekend ruined?

Speaker 1 (01:19):
I won't say it was ruined, but I was. I
was pretty irritated by it. I tried to buy a
few Kaitlyn Clark cards on eBay and they's so there's
they're going for so high. Like I've been trying to
get some signed ones, Like how much do you think?
I know? I don't have to think on average, I guess.
I meant I can tell you the ones that I
missed out on. Would you like to hear those? Yes?
Because I can tell you what I bid and what

(01:40):
I did not get. So let's say I did buying. Okay,
this item got away on a Kaitlyn Clark twenty twenty
three Bowman you Best Auto. I bid five hundred dollars
and went for five twenty one. And I wasn't there
at the end because I probably would have put twenty

(02:01):
two more dollars in there, but I wasn't there at
the end. Caitlin Clark, Angel Reese dual, Audio duel Otto.
I bid five point fifty and it went for eight hundred. Well,
you weren't even close on that one. Here's another one.
Caitlin Clark psa ten Bowman auto Max bid seven fifties.

(02:23):
What I bid went for eight eighty nine. So I'm
just not in the mix. So but I'm not chasing hard.
Here's another one. I bid four oh five on this
one and it went for six ' ten. God dang,
it's wild because I'm not there at the end. So
I just make a bid and get away and hope
I get them.

Speaker 4 (02:41):
So you just go back and check it till it'll
it'll poo oh, pop up, a little pop up, gotcha,
like a little little update.

Speaker 1 (02:46):
But you thought about what my walkout song should be
from my unnamed thing that I am doing. Oh yeah,
we got it. I can't only say what it is yet.
I even asked the PR team at this certain thing
and they're like, you cannot say anything about it yet.
So do you have Bettie Buddy Holly by Weezer? That's
what I picked you.

Speaker 5 (03:03):
I mean, you gotta do that, especially if you're gonna
wear your glasses right, which I figure you're gonna wear.

Speaker 1 (03:07):
Have to see. Yeah, it's one fun thing about it.
I think that's a no brainer. Dude. That was what
I picked too, and it's.

Speaker 5 (03:12):
Gotta be spread right up the OE. I look just
like Buddy Holly correct, not like, what are these hommies
doing my girl?

Speaker 1 (03:19):
Like? Not that well you messed up those words, but yeah,
how's it go? Well's with these homies dissing my girl?
That's it, Kevin? What you pick?

Speaker 3 (03:26):
I picked the Arkansas Fight song?

Speaker 1 (03:29):
I mean it makes sense, but I guess you need
context around it. Yeah, but if you know, you know
the Arkansas, but nobody's gonna I'm telling you nobody I.

Speaker 3 (03:38):
Know, but they're gonna be like, why is this guy
playing the Arkansas?

Speaker 1 (03:39):
They're not gonna the Arkansas fight song? Oh I why?

Speaker 5 (03:42):
K kay, you gotta get to the whole song. No,
but that's what that means, right you know? Yeah that's man.

Speaker 1 (03:50):
I like that, Kevin. Ye, Yeah, not a bad one.
You guys won't here read Katie, so you missed out.

Speaker 6 (03:56):
I was gonna say you should do the the Sam
Pittman walkout song. What's that the one where it's like
generals gather in their massive.

Speaker 1 (04:03):
Oh so you're oh yes, so the Razorbacks come out
to Well? I played to the Cake version of its
war Pig. Yeah, do you know who it is? Yes,
Black Sabbath, Yeah, like Blake Sabbath, General Zen and Black Masses. Yeah,
that's a good one too. That's cool. I didn't know
what it was for.

Speaker 7 (04:23):
I submitted what I submitted a song though I didn't
know what it was for.

Speaker 1 (04:27):
You submitted a song for what if you didn't know
what it was for?

Speaker 7 (04:30):
Well, Mike sent out of the email and he was like,
send in your your recommendations for walkout songs.

Speaker 1 (04:35):
Oh, but you don't know what we're talking about. Yeah,
I haven't said, and you have been gone. Reids had
like three months off in a row. Yeah, it's quite
It takes like a two week basion to Disney's like
my girl's birthday. I needs sixteen days off. Man, he
just takes summers off. I guess. Yeah, yeah yeah. So
what what song did you pick without knowing? Uh? I
thought it'd be funny to do the Forever Young? Why

(04:59):
is that? Yeah? Uh? Why is that? I mean?

Speaker 7 (05:02):
I just think, you know, yeah, what are you trying
to say any of it? We're out there trying to
be athletes, you know, but you know we aren't as.

Speaker 1 (05:08):
Good as we are to say. Bobby tries to be
forever young. I think we all try to be forever young. Yeah,
you better turn that, buddy to go an extent, right.
I think I'm gonna do Weezer Buddy Holly. Yeah, dude,
that was the one I chose. Eddie chose it too,
and there's no explanation. I looked like a door with
big glasses. So I'm just gonna take it. You look
just like Buddy Holly. He's gonna take it and run
with it. I had to miss my softball game last week. Yeah,

(05:31):
I told you guys, h wife got six. I couldn't go,
and then I have to miss this week. Oh dang,
two weeks letting the team down.

Speaker 3 (05:38):
Man, the last two weeks of the season.

Speaker 1 (05:40):
You're yeah, I'm leaving the country. There's something to do.
And the guy sent me the time. He was like,
we're playing again at six and I don't have the
gut stop. Sorry, man, I gotta miss again. I knew
I was gonna miss this week, but I thought I
could do week one to be back for week three.
To miss week one and two them I will never
show up. Yeah right, yeah, you get right. I think
you're done. Do I just ghost him now? Yeah?

Speaker 5 (05:57):
But you can always ask him, right, ask him like, hey, like,
do you want me on this team?

Speaker 7 (06:01):
Dude?

Speaker 1 (06:02):
Yeah? I feel bad, but I was always going to
miss this week after like for work, go to France
for a few days, which not really pumped about having
to go because it's it's France, man, Dude, I don't care.
It's fly there and work and do like some speeches
and fly back. There's nothing. It's just like a long trip. Dang.
I've never been to France. I went last year, so

(06:22):
was it nice out there? I went to Paris last year.
It was cool, Betty, Betty, yeah, I went. It was awesome.

Speaker 5 (06:26):
But we actually got to sleep in, went chop in.
You don't go vacation to sleep in like you can
do that here in Nashville.

Speaker 1 (06:33):
No, I can't. Actually what I don't allow I really
don't allow myself to sleep in much. But so you
go all the way to Paris to sleep in. I
go all the way to Pais to sleep in and
then do pair of stuff later in the day. Okay, No,
it's pretty cool. But I'm going to miss week two
and then week three.

Speaker 3 (06:46):
I'm back, dude. If I'm on that team this week forore,
im out.

Speaker 1 (06:50):
Because of vacation. That's what I'm saying. It's like, hey, week,
I'm not even here. Did you pay no? Oh bones?

Speaker 3 (06:59):
Can you pay those?

Speaker 5 (06:59):
If you walk in on that dime with that team,
they're going to be like, dude, we have no respect
for this guy.

Speaker 1 (07:03):
I know. That's what I don't want. I don't want
to be that person. Yeah. Yeah, and should we just
form like a twenty five whistles team?

Speaker 2 (07:09):
Yeah, that would be fun.

Speaker 1 (07:11):
You have to give me a few few months, your
bad dude, Your boot comes off this week?

Speaker 5 (07:17):
No, no, no, My appointments is seventeenth. I double checked.

Speaker 1 (07:20):
I thought they said two weeks in the boot.

Speaker 5 (07:21):
Yeah, but I guess the closest appointment I had was
the seventeenth. That's when they tell me the real deal.
But my foot feels a lot better. I walked on
it without the boot yesterday for a little bit and
it felt all right.

Speaker 4 (07:32):
I can always always tell when ed he's coming, by
the way, you can hear him when I'm what.

Speaker 3 (07:35):
When coming down the hall? Coming down the hall on
the studio?

Speaker 1 (07:41):
Crap? Have you guys watched that clips show at all?

Speaker 3 (07:44):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (07:45):
Cheesy?

Speaker 3 (07:46):
Hunh stupid.

Speaker 1 (07:47):
I thought it was going to be really good. I
was very excited about it. It was about Clippers, Donald Sterling,
the clipper fingernails on the Albudy plays Sterling. He's good
in it. Yeah, he's good in it. It's a little
cheat like the other NBA players like JJ Reddick. It's
like they got chubby versions of everybody who almost looks
like a real player.

Speaker 3 (08:07):
It's so weird. The casting is so bad.

Speaker 1 (08:10):
Yeah, I was.

Speaker 5 (08:11):
I really had high hopes for that show because like
that La Lakers one was really good and was it called.

Speaker 1 (08:15):
The Showtime Time Winning Time, Yeah, something like that. So
is it not close to that at all? No, it's
the current day, I mean the last five, six, seven
years because that scandal just happened with Donald Sterling and
the stuff that he got caught saying and how he
treated you know, not good. It seems like, good, dude,
he's dead.

Speaker 4 (08:33):
I I thought live he I looked it up while watching.
I was like, is he dead yet?

Speaker 1 (08:37):
Really?

Speaker 3 (08:38):
It's like he's like ninety.

Speaker 1 (08:39):
Maybe he's dead to me, Oh yeah, that's possible, same thing, Mike.
Is Donald Sterling still alive? I believe Kevin? Why did
you say that? Like Reid, I believe Kevin. I believe
Kevin sound like ninety years old. Well, I would say
it's not worth the time. JJ Reddick guy is just

(09:01):
like such a goober, even Chris Paul, Yeah, such a goober,
all of them.

Speaker 3 (09:05):
Dere Jordan, yeah no.

Speaker 1 (09:08):
And second of all, the Steph the person they had
a step when they were playing with it was like
if Steph had Thanksgiving ten days in. I have to
watch this, dude.

Speaker 3 (09:17):
I watched two. I think it's only two out right now?

Speaker 1 (09:19):
Right? Three?

Speaker 3 (09:20):
Now, Okay, I've watched two and I'm done.

Speaker 1 (09:21):
Well, what happened to me was I just clicked play
and I played the second episode first? Oh they had
that one first?

Speaker 3 (09:27):
Oh?

Speaker 1 (09:28):
What is the White Party one? Is the first episode? Right? Yeah, okay,
I didn't even watch that one. I just watched the
second when I was like, this show is way too cheesy,
had high hopes on him. I love a good sports
show with some truth in it. It is bad and
like Doc Rivers, he's played by the guy that was
in the Matrix. Yeah, I see that a little bit. Yeah,

(09:48):
Lawrence Fishburn knows a lot bigger, like like fatter than Doc,
I think, don't you think?

Speaker 4 (09:54):
Yeah, everyone like you said they got everyone in the
winter season.

Speaker 1 (10:00):
Yeah, they did, so don't don't watch clips. All right,
that's that's my recommendation there. Let's go over and do
the tittle tattle.

Speaker 3 (10:11):
His name ever?

Speaker 1 (10:13):
The tittle tattle up?

Speaker 4 (10:17):
Speaking of playing roles, talk about Kevin James playing John
Daly in a movie. If you had an athlete play
you in a movie, who would you choose?

Speaker 1 (10:24):
Well, I would pick someone that I feel like, probably
looks like me, so people wouldn't do what we're doing
to them. Yes, and I'd go Christian McCaffrey. Okay, looks
nothing like you. What's up? Like the dude's man?

Speaker 3 (10:36):
I wouldn't say nothing.

Speaker 1 (10:37):
What's up? He's a white dude. It's about it. What's up?
Glasses on him?

Speaker 4 (10:41):
Man?

Speaker 3 (10:41):
If there's only a few in the NFL, man, what's up?

Speaker 1 (10:44):
Okay? Next question, Mike, they play you then loser? Yeah,
I'm trying to think of a fit Mexican guy. Who's that?
A fit Mexican guy? Yeah? Yeah, like any sport. I mean,
I guess what's his name? MESSI?

Speaker 5 (10:59):
No? No, who had the TV show the guy the
George Lopez?

Speaker 1 (11:06):
No? He said athletes? Oh what athlete?

Speaker 5 (11:08):
Okay again bench warmers, Oh for sure, dude, Christian Ronaldo, Okay, yeah,
that'd be good.

Speaker 1 (11:14):
And you laugh at me. I think I'm closer to
McCaffrey than you are, Ronaldo. We got the same skin colored,
but I think who's closer Eddie to Ronaldo? Man? All right,
next up? All right.

Speaker 4 (11:28):
Mike McDaniel's implementing the number twenty four and several staff
meetings this offseason.

Speaker 3 (11:33):
Do you think it's corny or a good coaching move?

Speaker 1 (11:35):
I watched him. I thought it was corny until I
watched the press conference where he's like, you know, I
do every meeting four or twenty four. We do this
at eight twenty four. Is the reason is because they're
gonna be asked. It's been twenty four seasons we made
you know, we want a playoff game? I think is
what it was. And he's like, so all we're doing
is making sure they're super comfortable with it and making
them comfortable because it's going to be asked all season long.
I thought it would have been corny until I actually

(11:56):
heard him talk about it. I like it. It's you know,
if they're always if it always exists, it's not new
when it's introduced by the media. It's not something that's
gonna throw him. And then I started thinking about it
being like, oh god, I wonderful twenty four years. It's
just going to be a part of their day. The
Dolphins kind of sucked at end of the year. Last
year they were real good and they were the fastest

(12:17):
team in the world. They're pounding the Broncos. I remember
that they score like seventy on there.

Speaker 3 (12:20):
Oh yeah, and they lost.

Speaker 1 (12:21):
Four or six. So yeah, McCaffrey is a quirky dude.
And it's a fine line.

Speaker 3 (12:26):
McDaniel.

Speaker 1 (12:27):
Sorry, is a fine line between quirky and corny. But
I think he hits quirky.

Speaker 3 (12:33):
Way more than have you seen Tua? How skinny he is?

Speaker 1 (12:35):
Yeah, doesn't even look same like longer hair, like longer
curly hair.

Speaker 4 (12:40):
Hey, right, next time I have to score in a
total of twenty eight points in two games.

Speaker 3 (12:46):
How much blame do you put on Kyrie for being
down two?

Speaker 1 (12:49):
Man? Kyrie's not played well, has he? I mean, even
when Luke's out and Kyrie's got to be the guy,
he's still not even really the guy. Once he lost
twelve in rows and stopping on the Leprechaun. Yep, you
think that's it? Well, and after game one he comes
out he's like, I thought it'd be louder in here.
I know they kept showing, I kept showing on the board. Yeah,
h his quote, I thought it'd be louder in here.
During game two, Kyrie shot thirty eight percent game one,

(13:12):
thirty two percent in game two. I'll tell you last night,
because last night was game two. Luca was out of
his mind again in the first quarter. Who's out of
his mind even the first half. But he petered out
a bit and Kyrie did not really hold up his
end of the bargain. But I will say this two
things I'd like to say. One, it ain't over. They

(13:32):
won their games at home they're supposed to. We'll go
to Dallas now, Dallas will won the next two that easy,
just like that, Just like that. And also like to
say I did bet again on last night's game. I
bet five hundred bucks and I took Dallas and the
points and they went off at six and a half. Okay,
son of a mother. They lost by seven, oh boy,

(13:53):
And it.

Speaker 4 (13:54):
Was very very close until are you surprised he didn't
found with the d don't know if you watched the
entire thing.

Speaker 1 (13:58):
I didn't watch an ing. They let it, let him like,
I mean, they weren't gonna come back that foul. The
foul when they when Luca or uh when who fouled it?
When he pushedhim in the back. That's why Derek White, right,
it was Derek White. I think it was Derek Quiet
and that if that had been a foul ins out
of a block, they'd have been down three. If it

(14:18):
was a foul. It was a push in the back, yes, yeah,
the rim kind of blocked him more than anything too.
I think he was just short, too fair. But it
was a foul. But I don't think it was such
an obvious foul that the rest purposefully didn't call it.
There was a lot happening. There were like five people
right there right then. Yeah, but there was a for sure,
a hand in the back and a push, but that
probably happens all the time. It's just a little more
glaring because it was right at the end of the game.

(14:40):
But it would have changed the game because you're talking
about two shots making a one possession game. That didn't happen,
and they didn't foul, And I wish they would have
because I needed Dallas scored on the point. I needed
them to hit even hit two free throws and Dallas
come down, hit a three, give me a chance. Lost
five hundred more bucks, and then I picked u over

(15:00):
six and a half for like, uh for lively? Oh no,
what he scored two. I think he had minus points.
I think he made him.

Speaker 3 (15:08):
He had one, dug, that's all.

Speaker 1 (15:09):
I think he finished with two points. I bet one
hundred bucks them to finish over six and a half.
So I lost six hundred bucks last night. Dang, that's
all right. Double up ketchup would always say, yeah, you're
good at that. Double up to ketchup. Over hit over
the weekend, though, they did, and I hit big time.
I hit Caitlin Clark over like seventeen and a half.
She scored thirty, I think, and then I didn't. They're

(15:29):
playing the Sun, the Connecticut Sun tonight. I don't think
I'm not that game. The Son is the Sun. We
talked about this, Yeah that's right, Connecticut Son is the casino. Right.
Oh that's right. Yeah right, So yeah, Kyrie, step it up,
step it up, bro, Yeah, we need you all right?
What else?

Speaker 4 (15:48):
After beating the Celtics in a lot of major categories
but still losing the game. Are you starting to panic
if you're a MAVs fan?

Speaker 1 (15:54):
Uh? Yeah, it's not fun. As MAVs fan has lost
fifteen sixteen hundred dollars so far. It sucks not a
MAVs fan generally, but I am on I bet, but
they played a lot better Game two, for sure, and
so I didn't know what Luca was gonna do. Is
wrapped up. His ribs are wrapped up, his knee was
wrapped up. Everything was wrapped up.

Speaker 3 (16:13):
Yeah, he's a drama queen.

Speaker 4 (16:14):
They all are, and I know, but he's Hey, you know,
sucks Tatum. Well when it comes to scoring and shooting
right now. Yeah he did assists, he says, but you know,
he sucks Tatum and he's still those double teams are
coming every time. Yeah that's fine, that's okay. He's still awesome,
But you know, sucks Tatum. I'd love to have him
on my team, but you know, it sucks that Tatum.
Javin Brown, Jelen Brown's a dude.

Speaker 2 (16:34):
He is.

Speaker 1 (16:35):
Yeah, they're all dudes. But what's up with Porzing? Is
he hurt or no, he got hurt?

Speaker 4 (16:39):
No, everything says head coach and he both said we're
good to go for Game three.

Speaker 5 (16:45):
I did hear where he's like, I die, Yeah, Porzinga
said that, yeah, he'll die if he said if I die.

Speaker 1 (16:52):
I die, if I die. Uh yeah, congrats Ken, that's
good for you. Thank you shut up. Okay, that's a
title tottle, thank you stupid his name ever the tittle tounnle.

(17:15):
All right back, and we're gonna talk Caitlyn Clark here,
and we're gonna bring on an expert, Scott Agnes from
fieldhouse files dot com. He has been a lifelong Indiana
guy born went to school ball boy. It's crazy and
so check out fieldhouse files dot com if you want
to hear his podcast and if you want to follow
about the Pacers or mostly Caitlyn Clark right now, which

(17:37):
is what Obviously I'm super fan, I'm biggest fan. Yeah,
but throw some Pacers questions. But I thought about actually
going to a game, a fever game, Yeah, just going
and buying tickets and going up there. We got there prettyasy.
We drove up there, yeah, five hours maybe maybe four.
You think we could be media though, and like getting
that group people like Kayla, guys, ask you a question.

(17:57):
You gotta take your jersey off for that. Then I've
been trying to buy I got my red one in
What would you ask her? How come your autograph cards
so expensive? Back, That's probably what I would ask. But
that would be fun to go to a game, right Yeah,
just to like experience that, which is weird because I've
never wanted to go to WBA game. This is weird, man,
never have. So here we go. This is Scott Agnes

(18:18):
from Fieldhouse Files dot Com. Here we go. But I mean,
it's just not about that right now. I mean it is.
It is all Fever and you're right in it. And
I guess before we talk about the Kaitlin Clark stuff,
I was reading about you. You were a ball boy
for the Pacers and the Fever, like you were hardcore
in it.

Speaker 2 (18:35):
Yeah, one hundred percent.

Speaker 8 (18:36):
That's where I got my start with all this, and
so to go there and get that whole experience and
then to wrap it all up ultimately with the Fever
winning the WNBA championship. And I finished the year promoted
to equipment manager because the equipment manager had left during
the season. Uh. It gave me not only a great
fun exports experience, but laid the groundwork for what I'm

(18:57):
doing today now because I have a greater understanding. I
think so much of those players and also their situation
and how they're feeling before games.

Speaker 1 (19:04):
That's crazy, that's like, you're like legit. Because a lot
of people in any sort of sports media, especially if
they're working from that city, they get sent to that city.
They're not always a homegrown passionate fan, and it's probably
hard to be objective a little bit when you love
them so much. How in the world do you do that?

Speaker 2 (19:20):
It wasn't too difficult after the first year.

Speaker 8 (19:22):
Right coming out of college, I had the great experience
at Indiana University where you're covering a team that kind
of feels like the pros with IU men's basketball.

Speaker 2 (19:30):
So now it's no problem whatsoever.

Speaker 8 (19:33):
The weirdest thing is when people, I'm sure you get
it too, people think you're part of the team or
you're part of something, and so they hit you up
for tickets or assume those things. I'm like, I don't
even have tickets. Quit asking.

Speaker 1 (19:45):
So I don't know if you ever every won the
WNBA Championship. So what happened then? Because how do they
win the championship and then go to the first overall.

Speaker 2 (19:51):
Pick Hall of Famer Tamika Catching's retires.

Speaker 1 (19:54):
U And it was just like that. She was such
a force and so instrumental to the success of that team.

Speaker 2 (20:00):
Yeah, hundred percent, Bobby.

Speaker 8 (20:01):
I mean, she's probably a top ten women's player of
all time Hall of Famer and was just so instrumental.
I think they had a record that still stands today
of something like twelve consecutive years of reaching the postseason.
And you just don't see that so much anymore today
with the parody or if injuries or if a player
two goes down. But she was just so in instrumental

(20:22):
to this franchise and that's what really.

Speaker 2 (20:24):
Led them there.

Speaker 8 (20:24):
They got back in twenty fifteen, in fact, in one
of her last years, but then the next year she retired.
And now that head coach Stephanie White's guiding the Connecticut
son who are atop the WNBA standings.

Speaker 1 (20:36):
Yeah, then they've lost one game, right listen. I'm I've
watched I've watched every Fever game except for one that
wasn't on television. I now know where ion is. Like,
it's wild how much I've been watching and listen. I
am a poser and a bandwagoner. I started watching Kaylen
Clark like everybody did in Iowa, where I would like
and I would say it on the show. I'd be like,

(20:57):
I am appointment watching for the first time ever a
woman's college basketball game that wasn't Arkansas, which is my team,
and so I would watch and I know the Arkansas
that the women's head coach, and I would watch those agains.
But for the first time ever, I watched cat Look
Clark at Iowa, and then it didn't matter what team
she was going to. I was in. I've watched every
freaking game. So is it to see that place full,

(21:19):
I mean jam packed for a WNBA game? Is it
freaking awesome?

Speaker 2 (21:23):
It is.

Speaker 8 (21:24):
It's bigger than a Pacers preseason game. The Fever have
already shattered like three different records and opposing venues.

Speaker 2 (21:31):
On top of that.

Speaker 8 (21:33):
Obviously, they had that daunting schedule, with eleven of their
first twenty on the road, I think among them, LA
and Vegas set franchise records. Then most recently, the Washington
Mystics set a franchise record for attendance. It's unfathomable, really, Bobby,
the level in which she's elevating everything from the TV metrics.
Five different networks have already had their most watched WNBA

(21:55):
game of all time. I'm sure all kinds of digital
metrics are there too for the WNBA, for the team.
It just it kind of goes back, I think, Bobby,
to what you were just saying is it's now become
appointment TV. I know so many people that were more
interested in the women's NCAA tournament for the first time
over the men's tournament, And I think a lot of that,

(22:17):
in fairness, kind of speaks to the way in which
the games are different now, and meaning college basketball. In
the men's game, you're remaking the roster every year, and
the women's game much less so, so you get to
know these players for three and four years. You don't
have the one and done's, and you don't have the
remake of the rosters quite so frequently, So you build
that connection, and I think so many times teams forget

(22:39):
that at every level.

Speaker 1 (22:40):
So then let's get to Caitlin Clark specifically, like, why
would are teammates not like fight back for her? Because
that was a narrative, don't know how true it was.
I watched every game. I would think the same thing
at times, like yo, what like if somebody got one
of my people, I don't care if I liked them
or not. If they're one of my people, I'd probably
jump in. Was that real or was that just the
media saying it was real?

Speaker 2 (23:01):
What I do wonder is what were they what are
they feeling? What are they told? Right?

Speaker 8 (23:06):
And in those moments, for example, like even Caitlin being
left off Team USA one of her teammates Kelsey Mitchell,
and I don't blame her necessarily because of the discourse
that's going on, but she simply said, I have no
opinion on that. I can't remember any player ever not
having an opinion about their teammates or or about a
situation like that. The trouble is, whichever side you pick,

(23:26):
you're going to take heat from the other. And I
think that kind of speaks to the impact that Caitlyn
has had, and unfairly so, in terms of being thrown
into discussions that aren't anything to do with basketball, but
in terms of their teammates. Here's what you got to
keep in mind. I think so many of these players,
for the most part, are still trying to prove it.
Even their head coach is a first time head coach

(23:48):
just in her second year. Aleah Boston came to her
defense in terms of separating her, But she's only a
second year player. I'm not sure you maybe have maybe
you need that enforcer or something on the in the
locker room. You might have seen that with the Pacers
with James Johnson this past year. He wasn't signed for
what he can do on the court. He was signed
for being a leader for this team. He was there

(24:11):
when the team had a physical confrontation, like in the postseason,
Bobby Portis was talking smack, James Johnson stepped in, got
a technical.

Speaker 2 (24:19):
They never heard from Bobby Portis.

Speaker 1 (24:20):
Again, are a lot of the players because you're there,
are a lot of the players as genuinely haters or
jealous that she came in as a rookie and she's
already making way more money again based on the Shoe
contract that she got in the Wilson contract that she got, Like,
is that a factor with other players?

Speaker 8 (24:36):
It certainly seems like it in terms of the league
as a whole, right, and part of you I think
can empathize with it a little bit in terms of, hey, look,
I've been here for several years, or I have a
story worth telling. Why are you talking to Caitlin for
the third time today, for the fifth time this week?

Speaker 2 (24:51):
Like no joke.

Speaker 8 (24:52):
That was Caitlyn's week for the first three weeks of
her WNBA career. Is she was talking to the media
basically every day or every other day.

Speaker 2 (25:01):
Because it was game day.

Speaker 8 (25:02):
And at that point she was talking in the morning,
after shoot around, pregame, and then postgame. I was adding
it up, Bobby, she was talking to media about forty
five minutes per day on a game day. And so
from that standpoint, along with the national attention, I think
maybe some jealousies seemingly crept in. I mean, you saw
so many players you know, talk even take Minnesota Lynk's.

Speaker 2 (25:26):
Head coach Cheryl Reeve.

Speaker 8 (25:27):
They highlighted the fever in the preseason, showed both of
their games as you would with any number one pick,
and she, being the Olympic coach, even goes, hey, this
league is more than one player. It's twelve teams. That
was her hashtags in a tweet. So I think it's
a league trying to figure out how they embrace everything
that comes with her while also spotlighting everything else. And

(25:48):
it's a delicate balance. But I think you have seen
some jealousy naturally creep in from players across the league.

Speaker 1 (25:55):
What is she like?

Speaker 8 (25:57):
She's Peyton Manning like, that's the best way I can scriper.
Truly professional, always says the right thing is the ultimate
teammates competitive as hell, wants to rip your head off,
but then postgame will give you a hug and talk
with you whatever. I am truly beyond words, really impressed
with the way in which she carries herself, Bobby. Just

(26:19):
the level of scrutiny she's facing, the number of times
she's put in front of cameras, the fact that the
team has like four members of executive protection traveling with them.
It's like the Pacers right now before that they didn't
need any security going back. I'm not sure they ever
traveled with security until today or this season. So just

(26:40):
the way in which she's handled this has been truly remarkable,
especially considering she's just twenty two years old.

Speaker 1 (26:45):
Does she ever miss in practice? I mean, I know,
I mean, yeah, it's like when you watch the NBA
guys or WNBA women when they shoot and there's nobody
on them, they don't They almost never miss. And to
watch her chunk threes, logo s threes constantly, I can't
imagine what her percentage is like with nobody guarding her.
It's got to be crazy to see, right.

Speaker 8 (27:04):
Yeah, and what we will see is mostly scrimmages or
five on five work after practice. We unfortunately haven't had
one of those times where sometimes after pacers or feed
fever meat availability where you'll be able to see the
players just shoot while you're waiting for players to talk.
I'm guessing Caitlyn gets her work in before practice and
before everybody's out there, before cameras, because I wouldn't like

(27:28):
that pressure. If you're a player, you know there's you know, however,
many media members maybe that's a big difference too. I
should note, by the way, at a preseason game there
were thirty one media members and eight cameras. Most games
last year there are probably two two people. That's it like,
so the coverage is entirely different. But when you get
on the basketball floor when she's shooting like that, yeah,

(27:49):
a lot of the time she's just knocking it down,
especially when she's getting in her rhythm, shooting going around
the arc.

Speaker 1 (27:54):
Yeah. Do WAA teams want a tank? That is that
a factor in the WNBA where they want a draft
pick like the NBA. You know they'll tank in the
NBA for her, Like did the Fever want to get
a top draft pick or they trying to win games.

Speaker 8 (28:07):
This year specifically? No, they're trying to win. They're trying
to rebuild a culture. I think it can be dangerous
to have a culture of losing a culture of understanding
you can tank and all that. Now WNBA's a little
bit differently because it's an aggregate of the record over
the last several years.

Speaker 2 (28:22):
So that if I'll.

Speaker 1 (28:24):
Explain that, I don't know that. So I'm going to
be ignorant here, So tell me that how that works.

Speaker 8 (28:29):
Yeah, So you're just taking the aggregate record over the
last couple of years to determine your odds to then
when the draft lottery is held, whether you get that pick.
The other things fans may not know if they're just
joining into the league too, is the Pace or the
Fever had a rash of bad.

Speaker 2 (28:45):
Luck in the lottery? They have been awful and irrelevant.

Speaker 8 (28:48):
Like we said, since Tamika Ketching is retired in twenty sixteen.
Since that point they had been they had a couple
of times where they had the odds for the top
overall pick and didn't get it when they had like
the third pick ultimately, and so yes, the Fever have
drafted the number one overall the last couple of years,
but before that it was a little bit different, and
I'm glad. I kind of like the fact that they
combine your record over the last few years to then

(29:11):
determine your lot ofy odds.

Speaker 1 (29:12):
I think that's a better idea for the NBA too.
I think it stops tanking. What are you gonna tank
for three years to get your odds better? So the
Olympic team, that's kind of a joke, right that they're
well what was reported was that some of the players,
some of the older leader players, didn't want her on
the team because her limited playing time would create a distraction.

(29:33):
Since when do fan bases pick who's on an Olympic team?
If true, and isn't that a hypothetical situation they're creating
in order to keep her off the team? As you
can see, I'm fired about it. What are your thoughts?

Speaker 2 (29:44):
Yeah, so there's a lot of layers to this. Let's
first go with what that report was.

Speaker 8 (29:49):
I just don't believe that's there's a lot of credence
to that because you're trying to take the top twelve
players from a team standpoint, it may not be the
top twelve players in the league. I want to emphasize
that you've got to form a group that can come
together and get it done. You got to have the
appropriate guards, centers, all that sort of thing how you
build the roster. Secondly, I think you have to have

(30:10):
an eye on the future while also appreciating your past,
and I think you're seeing the benefit there. For Diana
Trossi going for her sixth gold medal, she's like forty one,
and to be clear too, she's not at a level
of like Lebron James, where on any given night he's
a top three player in the league. Now he can't
do it for eighty two games as a thirty nine

(30:31):
year old. I don't think that was a a token
thing here, but in terms of Trossi being on it,
that's one you could question. You could also question a
couple players that have been injured. One player hasn't even
played in the game yet this season. Then you get
to the aspect of building the game, and that's a
no brainer turn when intern you talk about including Caitlin here.

(30:53):
The other thing I'm surprised at more than anything, Bobby.
We know it comes down to money a lot of times, right,
Nike is a major sponsor of USA basketball. Nike is
signing Caitlin Clark to a signature shoe deal. You don't
see that many times with rookie. So I'm surprised just
from a sponsor standpoint. Again, a lot of different levels
to all this, but they haven't pushed necessarily. Maybe they

(31:15):
have privately for her to be included. It just doesn't
add up entirely, because not only is she an incredible player,
she can shoot the heck out of the ball and
your team, yourself up for future teams. You want her
to experience it this year, maybe when she's like the
tenth man, eleventh man on the roster and not having
to be the it girl, whereas we all foresee her

(31:38):
being that right the next several Olympics at least.

Speaker 1 (31:42):
Yeah, I don't know why, I guess so irritated. I
don't know her, I've never met her. I'm not Iowa fan,
but I just I started to feel bad for her
because she did nothing to deserve all of this except
be awesome, like just set the scoring record. She's not
controversial in anyway, and people are like, why is she
getting all this attention? Well, she's the number one, she's
the highest score in all of basketball men women, Like,

(32:04):
no one's done that since I mean Pistol Pete was
the last dude. He owned it before, so that doesn't
happen but for like every forty years. So it does
make sense when someone who does something differently and sets
records gets a little more attention. And people were just
such haters. And I'm a hater of haters. Scott that's
my name. I'm a hater of haters. Let's move in
Pacers real quick. We went up and spent some time.

(32:25):
We were Miles Turner, that dude's awesome, Like friendliest guy.
How do you feel Do you think this was a
success in the eyes of the organization?

Speaker 8 (32:34):
Yeah, this past Pacer season absolutely was no doubt about that.
The expectation going in from the player's standpoint, they were
all talking playoffs. The star of the team, Tyrese Halliburton,
he was talking how I'm tired of losing. I'm tired
of being seen as a loser. He hadn't truly won
since high school, didn't win big at Iowa State, went
to Sacramento, where they inevitably almost always were in that

(32:56):
lottery until here recently when they hired Mike Brown and
kind of turned things around. But the coaching staff, I
note the front office, none of them were talking about
the postseason going into this season. They kind of felt
like this might have been another rebuilding type year, not
like a tank, not like trying to get to the
top of the lottery. But they were optimistic about how
things potentially could go, and it couldn't have gone any better.

Speaker 1 (33:19):
Now.

Speaker 8 (33:19):
Certainly they benefited from circumstances in the terms of injuries.
First with Milwaukee, you don't even see Jannis on Detakumbo
in Round one. Damian Lillard, I'm not sure he was
eighty percent throughout several other injuries they were dealing with.
You get to New York and the Knicks were down
about four key players throughout that series. Still, like the Celtics,
you don't apologize for that. You need luck on your side.

(33:41):
But as a whole, the fact that Tyree's had another
All Star year. We had All Star weekend right here
in Indianapolis. And then for Tyree selfishly, he was able
to get All NBA, which benefits his wallet a great
deal another forty five million because he earned that All
NBA vote. So all things considered, outside of maybe Tyrese's
hamstring injury that bothered him for the final three months

(34:03):
of the season, it was easily a successful year here.

Speaker 1 (34:06):
I think we were there when we heard it the
first time we were against Boston, and then it just
kind of nagged him the rest of the year and
actually bothered him in the playoffs too. We saw the Pacers,
you know, make some pretty strong midseason acquisitions that solidified.
Are they all staying? Is that? Is that unit staying intact?

Speaker 8 (34:23):
Basically, yes, there is one caveat to that in that
Pascal siakams up for a contract. The reality is here,
the Pacers don't trade for a player and give up
the assets they did in three first round picks and
a couple of players to get a guy like that
without an understanding he would be open to re signing here.
And the other known thing is, of course the Pacers
they have his bird rights, which means they can offer

(34:46):
him more than any other team out there. So they
bring back Pascal. Yeah, then basically you have that entire
group brought back. It's a young core. That's what stands
out so much about it. And starting this upcoming year though,
there's circumstances change a little bit when you get into
the NBA financial minutia here because Tyresee's new contract over

(35:06):
forty million per year that now starts. It goes from
like four million to forty and then Siakam presumably getting
paid here coming up. It can start the day after
the NBA Finals. That's new this year as well, to
resign your own and so Pascal's first year of his
deals expected to be well over forty million. So there's
eighty million dollars of your salary cap. Bobby tied down
to just two players, Whereas here, as of late, the

(35:28):
Pacers had really had unique opportunity to mess around with
the roster, take on trades and deals to fine tune it.
While they're on this rebuilding trajectory.

Speaker 1 (35:38):
They have no money. They have to sign me like
Buck sign me.

Speaker 8 (35:42):
They're not quite at the phoenix level here to be
kind of phoenix they have no Big three. They literally
basically can only sign players that onto the veteran minimum.
The pacers aren't at that level. But that's why you
have to work towards this and plan it out two
or three years because it has a lot of money
to commit to a couple of guys.

Speaker 1 (36:00):
We were talking about fieldhouse files dot com earlier before
we had John and your podcast Fieldhouse Files. So if
we listen to the podcast, like, what are people going
to hear?

Speaker 2 (36:08):
Yeah?

Speaker 8 (36:08):
So during the postseason I did something different in terms
I did a live postgame show on YouTube and then
made that on podcast form. Now back to kind of
our regular slated schedule. I try to do it a
weekly podcast and get into any little I'm big on details,
little things I see little things that like, for example,
last night, Rick Carlisle was at back at Boston where

(36:30):
he played where he won a championship, but he was
there for a different thing, to present the Chuck Daly Award,
So I talk about those different things. Were obviously got
to break down this salary cap, which is very unique
to this pacer situation now moving forward, and then talk
about what's gone on here as of late, whether it's
games whether it's the draft in Summer League in July

(36:51):
is always one of my favorite events.

Speaker 1 (36:52):
Scott Agnes and you guys can subscribe to his newsletter,
go to Fieldhouse files dot com, or listen to the
podcast Fieldhouse Files Behind the Scenes in the Locker Room
of the Payers and Fever the Fever. That's I mean, look,
I'm in. I've watched every game. I've never watched a
w NBA game in my life, and I've watched them all, Scott,
except for the one that I had to watch the
little cartoon guys on ESPN the game Tracker because they

(37:13):
wasn't on TV anywhere, which I thought was bizarre. Scott.

Speaker 8 (37:16):
The Kaitlyn Clark effect right there, you're tuning in. It's
must watch TV for you and millions of others, clearly
by the metrics.

Speaker 1 (37:23):
Well, Scott, we appreciate your time and good luck, and
you guys can follow Scott Scott Agnes on Twitter and
Instagram and we'll put this in the show notes as well. Scott,
have a great day, man, We really appreciate it.

Speaker 2 (37:32):
Yeah, thanks for having me on. Good to talk with you, Bobby.

Speaker 1 (37:35):
All right, thanks to Scott, pro Kaitlyn Clark, my red
Kaitlin Clark jersey came in, so I have a red
one a blue one. They're both just a little too big.
They're both large as I should have got mediums, but
I didn't want to get a medium and it be
too small. I'd rather have a large and it'd be
too big. But I'm not really satisfied with it.

Speaker 5 (37:54):
I think basketball jerseys, dude better to run a little
larger than sugg I agree, Yeah, that's true, sure, because
that medium could be little snug on you.

Speaker 1 (38:00):
I agree, but it's I wanted just to fit. It's
just a little big question I want to wear to church.

Speaker 3 (38:07):
What do you guys?

Speaker 4 (38:09):
Do you wear jerseys? If you're watching the game at
home by yourself? Are you watching?

Speaker 3 (38:13):
Are you in a jersey?

Speaker 1 (38:14):
No? I don't really wear a jersey anywhere unless I'm
doing something that requires me to wear a jersey, like
a football game, like if you're playing. If I'm going
to be on camera for something related to Arkansas football
and the jersey will actually accentuate that in some way,

(38:35):
I will wear it if it's part of the show.
But I'm just not gonna wear a jersey to wear
it to support I don't think. I have a couple
of jersey shirts that are like jersey but their shirts
over cool. Yeah, I don't mind those. I'll actually like that,
the T shirt with the number on it. No, they
have like a couple of couples. They're like full over shirts,

(38:57):
but they're like jersey material.

Speaker 3 (38:59):
I like those. The baseball ones like that are cool.

Speaker 1 (39:01):
Yeah, and I've even worn one of those to work before.
I was gonna wear one to play softball because they
were blue. I was gonna Mark Gray signed jersey, but
you didn't you get a chance to do that. But no,
I'm not a big jersey guy. I did start to
frame some of them, though. I got a really cool
So this is what was hard. We go to like
places like Florida State to do too much access and
they give us a jersey and it's like the legit jersey.

(39:22):
It says bones on it, it's got number one, and
so let's say you frame it and that's that was
the plan. But then you only see the back of it,
you know, see any of the Florida State stuff. It
just looks like a whatever. That color is gold, gold
and red or something. So this is what I did.
I have a tailor who does like my clothes, like
if I'm doing award shows or anything where I have
to have my clothes tailor. I was like, hey, can

(39:44):
you take this apart on the front in the back,
And they're like, yeah, what's up? I said, just remove
the front in the back and make it two halves.
And so I got a hockey jersey kiss because they're
so much bigger, and I took them apart from it
and I put them beside each other, the front and
the back. That's awesome. That's a great as you can
see all the Florida state stuff and then you see
the bones on the back. I have it upstairs and

(40:04):
that was my experimental one, and it's cool. That's really cool.
It just takes a little bit of time to do
because you got to like take the thread out, and
you do have to take it apart, so you don't
get to wear it anymore. But I don't really need
to wear it.

Speaker 5 (40:16):
But and if somebody tries to steal it, they're like, oh,
it's not a real jersey.

Speaker 1 (40:19):
It's splitting half. Dang it. I can only wear this
on my back. Why do you wear jerseys? No?

Speaker 4 (40:24):
I was having that discussion the other night with my
girlfriend I was watching the game, was like just She's like,
are you gonna wear your jersey?

Speaker 3 (40:28):
And I'm like, no, not just sitting at my house by.

Speaker 1 (40:30):
Myself, but you wear I'm like, when if I go
out to a bar.

Speaker 3 (40:34):
And watch the game, yeah, I'll wear it.

Speaker 1 (40:36):
Yeah. And I you know, if I go to a
Razorback game and I know I'm going to be doing
some press there or something, I don't mind wearing it
because it's like part of the It's like part of
the show. Like it's like part of that. He's a
big crazy fan. But just generally nah.

Speaker 4 (40:51):
But you know viral videos where like people when they
go crazy when their team.

Speaker 3 (40:54):
Loses and they're all wearing jerseys and just sitting at
home alone. That's just kind of weird to me.

Speaker 1 (40:58):
A girl. What kind of fan they are when they
break their TV? That's that's funny. All right, cowboys, let's
take a break. We'll come right back. I bought a
new car. So I have you got the cyber truck? No,
So I have a Hunday that I drive sixty percent
of the time. And this Honday that I have now

(41:20):
is the best car. It's the best car I ever driven.
And I'm not even saying that because they don't have
a deal on this podcast. They've deal with the radio show.
But it's a Hyundai Santa Fe. I saw one drive
by this morning, and it's not like a jeep waver
like what a like waved down on me. I think
they were like, who is that? You guys don't do that.
I know, I know, but it's so the hon Days
Santa Fe is awesome. But I had a car before

(41:40):
I did a deal with hun Day and they were like, hey,
do you want to represent us and we'll give you
a car if you drive it. I want to drive it.
So I had a car before that, and I hated
it because it felt like the biggest douchebag car ever.
It's a Porsche. And I had a Tesla before Tesla's
got to be kind of a douchey thing themselves, and
or I think, at least I think it was before
they got to beat douchey, right you? Or no? I

(42:02):
mean now families have Teslas, right, Yeah, I don't think
they're douchey. You don't. Did they get that way for
a bit? Or no?

Speaker 8 (42:07):
No?

Speaker 1 (42:07):
Okay, good? I never got that good to know uh,
maybe people call me douche for another reason then car so,
but my wife would get so e motion sick in
the Tesla because it made no noise when you hit
the gas. Sure, this car, this Porsche. We went during COVID.
It was the only car they had on the lote
and I bought it, and it was the only car
they had that they could sell because they had like

(42:27):
eight cars. Were like, you can't sell it. For some reason,
we can't sell this car and I was I was like,
what do you have that you can sell me? And
so I bought this car. And what worked for us
was it had a setting in this car where you
push the button and then it gave you an engine
sound when you hit the gas. So my wife could
ride in it and I hit the gas and even

(42:48):
though it was electric, it was a fake engine sound. Yes. Interesting,
So apparently it was something with their brain where she
didn't hear the sound before it pulled her bla bah.
But I hated the car because I felt like the
biggest douche bag driving a Porsche. To me, that's the
douchiest brand there is. I want the chance to You
could do That's fine, and you can disagree you can disagree.
I always hated because I was always like man and

(43:10):
people would let me on traffic. I think people were
judging me, but I would judge me too, based on
the car you're driving.

Speaker 6 (43:16):
Man.

Speaker 1 (43:17):
Yeah it's not fair. Okay, thoughts, because I don't have
it anymore, I got rid of it. But what I'm at?
Did you think there was a douchey car, Eddie?

Speaker 5 (43:26):
I thought it was Normally a Porsche would be douchey.
I thought the one that you had was classy. Really, yeah,
I liked it.

Speaker 1 (43:32):
Maybe just a name I don't know.

Speaker 4 (43:36):
Kevin, Yeah, a little bit, I thought, so, yeah, a
little bit like I like the I like the Panamaras.

Speaker 1 (43:41):
I don't know, I don't know what anything is.

Speaker 4 (43:42):
Okay, it's more of like the long four door ones.
Those are sweet Porsche Panamera. But like the small little
like two door ones four door though yeah, okay, I
don't know.

Speaker 1 (43:54):
I think it's the same kind, except yours is electrical.
O mine was that That's what mine was?

Speaker 4 (43:58):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (43:58):
Yeah? Was it?

Speaker 2 (43:59):
Really?

Speaker 1 (43:59):
Yeah? Okay, then you're the dude.

Speaker 3 (44:02):
I'm thinking of another one. Then then no, no.

Speaker 7 (44:05):
Read, I think you've rightfully earned it, you know, Iback
no no no no no no, no no no.

Speaker 1 (44:12):
Did you think the car was if you just by itself,
would you be like, I bet a douchebag drives that.

Speaker 7 (44:17):
No, not at all, really I see that way with
like Camaros and Mustangs, Mustangs.

Speaker 1 (44:22):
What is your douchebag mobile? Then, Katie, I was gonna
say Camaro. I feel like, do they even make new ones?
So I feel like Camaros are like eighties though, like
it's like in the in the nineties, seventy one or whatever.
I don't know. I don't know enough about cars. Uh, okay,
they still make them twenty twenty four Camaro really okay,
So if you see a new one you think douchebag.

(44:43):
What about Mustangs?

Speaker 9 (44:45):
You can throw that in there too, Yeah, maybe.

Speaker 3 (44:48):
For sure, number one?

Speaker 1 (44:49):
What about souped up Mustangs?

Speaker 3 (44:51):
Number one?

Speaker 2 (44:53):
One?

Speaker 1 (44:54):
Okay? Then I don't want to plant anything. What do
you think our douchebag cars?

Speaker 7 (44:58):
I had a I had a charger when I first
met you, and it had big pipes on it, and
that was for sure a douche.

Speaker 1 (45:03):
Car when you were far douchier.

Speaker 7 (45:07):
Yeah, you've kind of yeah, yeah, I'm a little bit
douche big trucks too.

Speaker 1 (45:12):
Big big truck, big big truck. Yeah. Okay, so far
you guys haven't said the new car I bought. So
you bought? You said, what about a Lamborghini, Corvette, it's
a Ferrari.

Speaker 5 (45:23):
Anyone that drives a Lamborghini to me, it's like big
as douche. Like I don't care if you're a billionaire
and you're driving the Lamb, but you're.

Speaker 1 (45:30):
Still a douche.

Speaker 9 (45:31):
Did you get a Volkswagen Bug? No, you should have.
Someone would think that about you if you drove that.

Speaker 6 (45:37):
You think.

Speaker 1 (45:38):
I just want to be that comfortable with a little
flower on it. I wanted it many for a long
time in my life. Cooper. Yeah, never got one though, Okay, No, no, God,
no one. I would never drive a Lamborghini, right, Okay,
it'd be fun to like drive one. No, I won't
be fun to drive one like somewhere. No, And they
they're too low I'd be worried about all the time.

Speaker 7 (46:01):
Okay, Corvette, No, you're not kind of douchey, you dot.

Speaker 1 (46:07):
That's like the I'm not any of these cars. Just good. Okay,
you've already bought it. I already own it. I'll secretly
show it to you if you want to see it.
Hold can we guess it? No, because I'm not gonna
say yes here, not right now. I don't. It's not
even to I need to make sure that I got
all the play. Everything's got to be off where people
can't track me if they find me, right because the
plates then go to this place. Too many security issues

(46:30):
that people can see a license plate and find stuff.
How many doors does it have? Oh yeah, I wouldn'
I can't drive a two door anything, Eddie. I can
show it to you. Is it the Wiener mobile? That
would be baller? But what the test I wanted to
do here was to see if you guys would mention
my car as a douchebag mobile.

Speaker 3 (46:49):
And we did not.

Speaker 1 (46:50):
Okay, so here's a picture of it from the front.
Hold on, hold on, okay, rotate thet you No, that
was that my old insurance had to turn in. Hold on, Wow, Wow,
that's not douche.

Speaker 6 (47:12):
Dang?

Speaker 1 (47:13):
Would you drive that? It is that douchey d No?
I was you know what that is? Badass? See, I
was like, even I'm gonna be honest with you. I
was like a little embarrassed to drive it to work.
That was awesome, but I was a litt embarrassed drive
to work. Can you google it and show it's our secret? Man,

(47:34):
that's amazing. I don't know anyone that has one of those.
Would you be embarrassed to drive it to work? I'd
be proud to drive that to work. Okay, I need
to sell my Bronco though. If you wants to buy that.

Speaker 3 (47:45):
Oh the fire, why would you answer?

Speaker 4 (47:49):
Because like that, I just thought for a second, if
I could buy it, I would be awesome, awesome.

Speaker 1 (47:53):
I just don't appreciate cars that much. And we rebuilt
it and it's it's I just if I had, like
a I traded for baseball car. Can you imagine? I'm like, hey, Kaylen,
we're all good. I tried to the Bronco for a
lebron refractor. Your wife like it? My wife was. She's
very much if this is what you want, you should

(48:17):
get it and not worry about what other people think. Yeah. Absolutely,
But she's like that with like things, just generally with me,
because she knows some stuff I do. People are gonna
be like that's stupid, or the fact you have that
opinion stupid, or she's like it doesn't matter. As long
as you are being true to who you are and
what you want and you work for it, you should
get it. I didn't tell her I didn't drive it
to work today. It was embarrassed. She'd be mad at

(48:38):
you for that. I'll have that conversation with her when
I get home.

Speaker 5 (48:41):
You know which one I saw that just came out
that I'd like to get the VW But I've always
wanted a VW bus like the old school nineteen.

Speaker 1 (48:48):
Fifty seven, make anyone. They made an electric and you electrical.
That's cool.

Speaker 5 (48:52):
Cool, And see I have four kids, so like that'd
be awesome to go on a road trip with like
four kids in a bus.

Speaker 1 (48:58):
It'd be awesome. And I don't care about cars at all.
But also think about the new van. Is that it's
not going to be breaking down all the time. You
know it looks old? Does it look old?

Speaker 6 (49:06):
Though?

Speaker 1 (49:06):
Is have the old look? Oh? It doesn't? Has a
new style. It's almost like a hybrid.

Speaker 5 (49:10):
It looks like it looks like the old school, but
almost shaped like a mini van Ish kind of Yeah, but.

Speaker 1 (49:17):
It doesn't look like that old bwvan.

Speaker 5 (49:19):
It's got the similarities to it. But no it's got
it's got a different look to it.

Speaker 1 (49:22):
Well, what's cool is that if you buy it new,
it's probably not gonna break down. If you buy an
old one like that it looks cool, it'll break down. Yeah,
uh yeah, okay, hey god asked. That's really cool. The
thing is I drove it yesterday and people were not
They weren't looking at me like they were the Porsche,
which is good. Yeah, I feel like it's not that.

(49:44):
It's not it's pretty unassuming. Yeah. But then my wife's like,
you're crazy. I don't know.

Speaker 5 (49:50):
I'm with you, like, I don't think you drive that around.
Everyone's like, oh look at that, right, it's almost like
you kind of blend in.

Speaker 1 (49:56):
But a k y kN the sup of letters. I
like that. I y k y k knty. What concert
did you go to on vacation? Oh?

Little King here off the Little Mermaids. He's thinking of
King Triton.

Speaker 6 (50:34):
It was a little hard because he was underwater, so
the acoustics were a bit off.

Speaker 9 (50:38):
I did get good experience.

Speaker 1 (50:39):
How was the show?

Speaker 6 (50:40):
Okay, the view alone at the concert venue is enough
of a reason to go, Like, someone could show up
there and just.

Speaker 1 (50:46):
Did you say red Rocks? Yes, you say that, you
didn't this time? Okay, right the day?

Speaker 6 (50:51):
Yeah, yeah, red Rocks, red Rocks Amphitheater. The view alone
is enough of a reason to go there. You could
just have someone get up there and start reciting calculus
forms and it would still be a good time, just
because the view is so good.

Speaker 1 (51:02):
That's cool. Yeah, the show was good.

Speaker 9 (51:04):
The show was good, and there was a lightning storm
in the background.

Speaker 1 (51:07):
So they didn't cut the show.

Speaker 9 (51:09):
Well, it wasn't near us.

Speaker 6 (51:10):
It was way off in the distance, so behind the
band you can see lightning and hear the thunder a
little bit.

It was really cool that it was really deep.

Speaker 1 (51:19):
