Speaker 5 (00:55):
All right.

Speaker 4 (00:56):
I have a Peloton treadmill. It's awesome. It's a little
too big. It's hardcore. Maybe want to buy it?

Speaker 2 (01:05):
Buy it?

Speaker 6 (01:07):
Can you just get it or no?

Speaker 5 (01:08):

Speaker 4 (01:09):
I've had it for about three years, four thousand dollars
four like three years ago. I looked into getting one.

Speaker 6 (01:16):
I just don't have a place to put it.

Speaker 4 (01:17):
I know.

Speaker 2 (01:17):
Yeah, that's the hard part man, Like where do you
put it?

Speaker 4 (01:20):
Well, I put it in at my gym.

Speaker 2 (01:21):
Well I don't have a gym.

Speaker 4 (01:23):
Well you're asking me. You asked the question like.

Speaker 2 (01:25):
Normal people, like where do we put a treadmill in
the garage?

Speaker 4 (01:29):
Yeah, in the garage.

Speaker 2 (01:30):
I've done that before. It ended up being a place
where we just hung stuff.

Speaker 4 (01:33):
Like even if you put in the house, that's worth it.
I have one that I would unload for cheap. I
have a new one coming in that's been sent to
me by a sponsor, which is cool, and it's a
treamil is a treadmill. So but anyway, I just got
a note here going.

Speaker 7 (01:51):
The nice ones are definitely different though, Like the gym
that I go to now is nice one that it feels.

Speaker 4 (01:56):
Great til it's awesome. It's hardcore. This other one I'm
getting is hard core. Two is like it's not like
one where the little ground comes up you when you run.
It's like oh yeah yeah, so he's yeah, okay, Well
if somebody wants a treadmill, anybody, no one said anything.
It's also it's heavy because it's hardcore. It's not super

easy to move, but I gotta move mine, Katie.

Speaker 5 (02:20):
I don't know if I could fit it in my
Volkswagen Beetle or log it from Airbnb to Airbnb.

Speaker 4 (02:25):
She's still living that, but the.

Speaker 5 (02:26):
Nomadic life might not be the right time for me
to invest Gypsy.

Speaker 3 (02:31):

Speaker 4 (02:32):
Okay, So John Shobby coming up, and I got a treadmill.
What do I want to do first before we get
to the titletown? I got an update on me hosting the
Rich Eisen Show coming up, and Eddie had a dream
he was gonna.

Speaker 2 (02:45):
Come with me. Oh yeah, it's crazy, man, have bad news, Eddie.

Speaker 4 (02:47):
It's not happening. What Sorry, you can't go. I'm not
going anymore. Oh you're not going those dates now? Rich
is like, I'm not even leaving. I'm gonna be hot.
He's there for Monday, and I was doing Monday and
Tuesday and he's like, you can still do Tuesday, and
I'm like, I'm I gonna just to do Tuesday. It
is difficult for me because I gotta be back Wednesday.
So I passed. I'm so but maybe in the fall,

okay if I can.

Speaker 2 (03:11):
Yeah, because the dream it meant something, you know, So
I feel like we shouldn't just not do it.

Speaker 4 (03:16):
So I'm terribly disappointed because that's always really fun for
me to go and host that show. It's on Roku,
it's on TV, it's a national show. But he's like,
I'm now not leaving for Monday, so you can still
come do Tuesday. It's that's I'm just unable to do that.

Speaker 2 (03:31):
We ask you a question and be honest with me, but.

Speaker 4 (03:33):
You're gonna ask it anyway, So why would you ask?

Speaker 2 (03:35):
Well, no, you can just say no, not right now.

Speaker 4 (03:36):
But I don't even know what the questions about, so
I wouldn't say no. It's always questions freely. It's about
rich Eisen. Go ahead.

Speaker 2 (03:41):
So when you're on that show, because I heard the
show and there's like good chemistry with you and the
guys and all that.

Speaker 4 (03:46):
Makes me wish I was part of a better show
than this.

Speaker 2 (03:47):
That was my question.

Speaker 4 (03:48):
Yeah, all right, that's what I thought.

Speaker 2 (03:51):
Like, when you vibe with dudes like that, like real sports.

Speaker 4 (03:53):
Does it make you jealous little bit?

Speaker 2 (03:55):
A little bit?

Speaker 4 (03:56):
I have to depend on them though more than it's
a different vibe because the first time I went into
that show, I know what I was. I know what
was up, I don't know how much need to prepare.
I already have this feeling because I'm so insecure anyway
when I go into a place like that, meaning they
probably just think they're letting me on because I have
a big audience, not because I know what I'm talking about.
So I have like this need to prove myself. So

I'm going and I'm like, these guys are probably rolling
their eyes becuse they probably would want to host the show,
like they're guys gone, how come one of them can't?
So I've worked myself into a stupor on going this
is going to be miserable when it's really so much fun.
So Day one is me figuring out what work do
I need to do? Are these guys cool? Do they
wish they were doing it? Is? The resentment?

Speaker 8 (04:38):
Is there?

Speaker 4 (04:38):
Jealousy? How much time? Three hours? It's a lot of
time to fill. How much is that to fill? When
it's so all of that is day one. Day two
is awesome because I love those guys are so much fun.
They're just propping people. They want people to succeed. When
they come in. They have so much stuff prepared. I mean,

I still come in with way too much. But it's
like this show, I could probably do two shows every
day on the amount of stuff they have in front
of me.

Speaker 2 (05:05):
We could possibly talk about yeah, because I've sent you
some good stuff, we just don't talk about it.

Speaker 4 (05:09):
Yeah, that would be show three in a day. If
we ever got to say, to.

Speaker 7 (05:11):
Go by fast like the first day, or were you
like an hour and you're like, holy crap, myself two
hours because you're thinking so much.

Speaker 4 (05:20):
I would say it goes by pretty fast. Because one,
that show's good for guests, meaning they didn't get plenty
of decent guests, and then they also say, hey, if
you want to bring any guests, you can. So I
called Craig Kilbourne. I messaged to him, and I thought
that was super cool. He came by. They kind of
give you a little, you know, a lot of autonomy,

a little carte blanche to do whatever you want, which
I thought was weird because when Rich called me before
I hosted, He's like, do whatever you want, and I'm like,
I don't know what that means. He goes to talk
about whatever you want, talk about this wards so and
I'm like, how serious is he? And also I'm like
rich eis on my phone.

Speaker 2 (05:56):
That's crazy.

Speaker 4 (05:56):
Aside from like the.

Speaker 2 (05:57):
Actual talk what world are we living in?

Speaker 4 (06:00):
And I was playing mad against my buddy and I
had my at him on speakers. My buddy could hear
them see where the uh so? But I've actually never
met him in person. Oh, talked to him on this
show on zoom, talked to him on the phone. But
if I'm there, he's not there.

Speaker 6 (06:15):
It's true, but never like another event or something. Does
he golf?

Speaker 4 (06:20):
I don't know. I think so probably a little bit,
but not going. And those guys are really cool. I
depended on them a lot, but they it's such a
dynamic where they have their vibe and you just kind
of fall into their vibe.

Speaker 2 (06:31):
You all had great chemistry. Thanks man, you're jealous, maybe
a little jealous. And then it made me think too,
like could we handle a guest, Like if BONES was like, hey,
we have uh you know Rich or yeah, Rich comes in?
Can we handle them? Because I feel like I'd be
a little territorial, like who do you think you are?

Speaker 5 (06:48):

Speaker 4 (06:49):
You know what? That's what I want? You know what
I mean, that's what I want.

Speaker 2 (06:51):
So they just come into our studio and act like
this is your show man.

Speaker 4 (06:54):
Boom, and that's what I thought they would do to me.

Speaker 6 (06:55):
That person, not your desk, Come on now.

Speaker 4 (06:59):
Caitlin Clark WNBA star on USA Women's Olympic roster alternate list.
If I were heard, no way wouldn't want to be
on this team this year.

Speaker 2 (07:06):
No way.

Speaker 4 (07:07):
I would have my people go and say, hey, just
the way you've treated me exactly, And now it's going
to be totally awkward if she shows up when you
know those women already on the team didn't want her there.
That's why she didn't make it.

Speaker 2 (07:18):
But is it like serving military like that You've been
asked to join the Olympic team and you're gonna.

Speaker 6 (07:25):
Say, I think it's if somebody gets hurt.

Speaker 4 (07:27):
Yeah, but Eddie sand do you have to go?

Speaker 6 (07:29):
It's like oh draft, you go to jail.

Speaker 2 (07:32):
And you go, no, thank you for my country.

Speaker 4 (07:33):
WHOA The Indiana Fever's Kaitlin Clark and Connecticut sons Brown
and Jones are two of the top alternates, and I
feel like they were like, well, everybody freaked out, Yeah,
America's pissed. We need to put her on. If I
were her, and no, where would I go? Because I'm
not gonna treat her nice. It's gonna be that Forest
Gump scene. You can't see you take every single person
on that team. See it's taken.

Speaker 2 (07:55):
When she's trying to get lunch.

Speaker 4 (07:56):
Yeah, I just I just do you mind if I
have my chicken salad and can't city? So would not
want to do it if I were her, No chance,
no way. I am doing a panel with Sue Bird.
I've met her. I did. I met Sue Bird and
I met her wife or partner who is the soccer

player with the blonde hair, Ropino, Megan Rappino, and they
were They were very nice. They're married either partners. I
don't know if I don't know what the deal is.
They were together and we were standing at Weezer and
Weeze were played for like twenty people.

Speaker 2 (08:36):

Speaker 8 (08:36):

Speaker 4 (08:37):
And I was one of them, and only because that
they brought me to talk to a client. So I
had to go to Vegas to do some client talk
and they were there too. I guess they were doing
some client stuff too, and I was like, what up?
What up? They didn't know who I was, and so
I tried to act like I knew who they were
at first, all right, because you want to be on
equal footing. Yeah, I'm sorry, what do you guys do? Yeah? Hey,
what's your name again, Susan? So I knew who they

were idiately, super Bird, you know, GREATWNBA player, one of
the greatest ever. Yeah, Megan Pino Olympic gold medal soccer player. Absolutely,
and so I played it cool, but they were super nice.
And I'm doing a panel on women's sports with Sue
Bird and I'm the only dude on it. There's actually
a meeting at one o'clock today to go over what
we're talking about, and I can't. I'm not gonna be
on it. I don't want to show my cards.

Speaker 2 (09:22):
Right right right, because I'm like Kaitlyn Clark. You guys,
I was gonna ask, you're gonna go on a rent?

Speaker 4 (09:26):

statements have been. I cantlin Clark so far.

Speaker 2 (09:30):
Oh yeah, So.

Speaker 7 (09:33):
That's not to say anything then, but that's not always

Speaker 4 (13:41):
No croissant's, no time for a single crossan.

Speaker 2 (13:43):
Nothing, no French press coffee. Nothing does the change American
women to French women. That's funny, Mike French woman.

Speaker 4 (13:53):
Oh, Lenny, good French woman. That's a good one. Thank so.
That's why that's.

Speaker 2 (14:01):
What's up, DINGD. No sight seeing for you.

Speaker 4 (14:04):
And I am very fortunate. But it doesn't mean Now
it's just a lot. It's a long flight. It's like
I'll have to fly here to l A and l
A to back to have a meeting. It's in the
same flight, So you're going to go do that?

Speaker 2 (14:18):
Where is like, are you going to go on a
boat or anything, any of those panels out at sea?

Speaker 4 (14:23):
I don't know.

Speaker 8 (14:23):

Speaker 4 (14:25):
No, the yacht that they usually do these meetings on

me because I don't want to be I get boat sick.

Speaker 2 (14:32):
Oh that'd be bad. Okay, but good luck man.

Speaker 6 (14:36):
Yeah, not fun.

Speaker 4 (14:36):
Richeyson cancel, Okay. Le Clark's awesome. I gotta fly to
France and back, like I'm freaking driving downtown and back.
But it's good. But it's just difficult on the old body,
you know. And then I'll come back and next week
we're back at it again.

Speaker 2 (14:48):
Here, back to the grind.

Speaker 4 (14:51):
Yeah, thank you, tittle tattle. Let's go name the tattle tattle.

Speaker 7 (15:02):
Following the announcement of Joey chest not being banned from
the Hot Dog Eating Contest, if you're to enter a
contest eating.

Speaker 6 (15:08):
Food, what would the food be?

Speaker 4 (15:09):
The Joey chest out thing's weird to me because now
he's doing the special with Kobyashi on Netflix Eating Challenge.
So is he still out of the Nathans or was
that all just publicity get people to watch the Netflix special.

Speaker 7 (15:18):
As of now, he's still out because he's got a
partnership with a vegan dog company.

Speaker 4 (15:23):
Or's tofu dogs.

Speaker 2 (15:24):

Speaker 4 (15:25):
So at the same time, I do believe they were
making that a bigger deal because of the Netflix special. Yes,
him versus Kobyashi okay Abe watermelon, I ate probably a
pound a day. Yeah, at least I was off for
a while. I'm back. That's a lot of water bag baby.
I know. I act like it's to hydrate me, and
my wife's like, okay, just drin waterman. But I eat

watermelon like crazy. I could eat a bunch of watermelon.
I even have it down to where I can put
it on the mount to my teeth. Yeah, and so
I wouldn't. I don't choke on it. You know how
they wet their dogs. I grind my watermelon.

Speaker 6 (16:00):
You suck it through your teeth.

Speaker 4 (16:01):
I can some of it. It just depends. I don't
want to choke on it. Et a lot of watermelon interest.
I hate the seeds though. I hate seeds. To get seedless,
I do for the most part, but even seedless still
has some of the white seeds in it.

Speaker 2 (16:12):
Oh yeah, they can't.

Speaker 4 (16:13):
Pull them all out, dude.

Speaker 2 (16:14):
But there's something about eating a watermelon. Then then.

Speaker 4 (16:18):
I like to freely go. I like to just go hard.
I don't like to be worried about seeds, so I
go watermelon. And then I guess, since we don't get
Jake Paul and Mike Tyson, we get Kobyoshi.

Speaker 7 (16:29):
And yeah, you're gonna watch that chestnut? What the chestnut
and Kobyoshi?

Speaker 8 (16:33):
Right now?

Speaker 4 (16:33):
I'm not that interested in it. The only reason I
even think it or care about is because he got
supposedly kicked out of the other one. It was a
great pr move to be like, he's not going, but
this is happening a plus to them, or we wouldn't
even talk about it.

Speaker 7 (16:45):
All right, next up, all right, After turning down his
offer with the Lakers, do you think Dan Hurley flirted
with that just to use his leverage?

Speaker 4 (16:51):
I mean, I don't. He has all the leverage he
was offered the Kentucky job, didn't want it, was offered
a bunch of money, didn't use that for leverage, And
definitely if he just won leverage he could have. I
think Kentucky was offering him more money than the six
year seventy million that the Lakers were offering him. So no,
I don't think it was leverage because he already could
have done that and he didn't. Yukon I supposedly ordered

him or offered him like a six year, fifty million
dollars deal. But I think he likes being at Yukon.
He's an East Coast guy. His wife's from New Jersey
or something that that.

Speaker 2 (17:22):
Fan of his dad coach Yukon.

Speaker 4 (17:25):
No, his dad's a high school coach.

Speaker 2 (17:27):
I oh, okay, how long has he been at Connecticut?

Speaker 4 (17:32):
I don't know, six seven years? If I were guessing,
I do not know the answer to that. And he's
won two back to back national championships, and to me,
it didn't get famous. He was one of the hurlies
until they started to really win again. But I don't
know the answer to that. But I bet you watched
my Kevin's fingers. We're gonna have the answer soon. It
is what was your guest six or seven years?

Speaker 8 (17:50):

Speaker 2 (17:50):
Yeah? Pretty good?

Speaker 4 (17:51):
Didn't know, just guessed.

Speaker 7 (17:53):
Next up with Aaron Rodgers skipping Mini Camp, are you
concerned about his commitment?

Speaker 4 (17:58):
I would have him skip every camp, I would say,
do dude, here's what I want you to do. I
got your bean bag chair, sit on it, do some crunches,
but don't move. Yeah, because you don't want anything ripping.
Play it cool, buddy, Yeah, and we'll see it practice first. No,
he's old. He doesn't need to be a mini camp.
Even if you're worried about it like that. What about
him and the receiver, isn't it? They'll be fine. I'd
rather him have to figure that out than have another

ripped anything. And so I hope that Roger says healthy
and the Jets are pretty good. That's funny he is
right now?

Speaker 6 (18:28):
Yeah, because he said it was.

Speaker 4 (18:29):
France went for me.

Speaker 2 (18:30):
Oh, that'd be cool.

Speaker 6 (18:31):
He's on the panel.

Speaker 2 (18:33):
He's fixing the boat, trying to fix the boat.

Speaker 4 (18:35):
Or the women's sports panel.

Speaker 6 (18:37):
That would be interesting.

Speaker 4 (18:39):
I don't know. I mean probably California.

Speaker 2 (18:41):
Away from football, he said, yeah. But does he wants
to take his mind off football?

Speaker 4 (18:46):
I get that right now. I bet he's still working
out and throwing, because you don't want to go from
not playing at all or having an offseason not being
at least like doing padless workouts with some local college.
You guys, I bet he working on stuff I bet
we'd love that guy, like we got to spend time with.
I don't think I would like him at all. I

like him, I like him as a player. He entertains
the crap out of me. Yeah, but he it feels
like he thinks he knows everything. And that's two of us,
and we would not There's two of us, and I
don't like that. Itybe be a constant challenge for both
of us.

Speaker 6 (19:19):
It would be an entertaining podcast.

Speaker 4 (19:20):
It would not just fighting the whole time each other.

Speaker 7 (19:23):
All right after fouling out and his lack of defense
being a big storyline is the criticism of Luca fair
or foul.

Speaker 4 (19:29):
You know he fouled out Game three, that he's trying
to take a charge that fault. I think anything's fair.
Because he complains a lot makes himself a target. I
you know what, I've been betting lots of money on
the games. Maybe you do well. So last night I
looked at it and the game had just started and
I was like, I missed my shot. But I was like,

you know what, I'm gonna switch it up. And I
put five hundred bucks last night on the Mavericks plus
one and a half. Oh Man or two nights ago. Yeah,
and they lost this all lost another five hundred buck.
I enough, so it spread in the news. I've lost
like two grand twenty one hundred bucks so far in
the series.

Speaker 7 (20:05):
You haven't taken the Celtics once, No, man, because it's
why I don't bet black and Roulette, just because I've
picked red and I don't want to pick black once
and it'd be like, well it was red, And if
I was a black guy, I would never pick red, yeah,
because then he just bouncing back and forth with no,
I'm holding.

Speaker 4 (20:22):
Firm, Okay, I never I don't even pick black numbers,
and I don't know. Red's my favorite color, So that's why.
But if I were a black better, I also would
never pick red or red numbers because I never want
to be like, oh, if I had just done what
I was always doing, then I would have hood interesting.

Speaker 2 (20:38):
Red always hits man the easiest game in the world. Yeah,
it's over, it's over, it's done, let's go, it's done. Yeah.

Speaker 4 (20:45):
And like porzingis like tor some muscle I didn't even
know I had, and he's out. It was that game
three and why would they even bring him back?

Speaker 7 (20:54):
Yeah, he's definitely not playing. I don't think tonight game four.

Speaker 4 (20:57):
No, even if he was healthy, even he was kind
of hell, no way, no, you don't need them. I
won't even bring five. If something, it gets to game
six and he's healthy, then you start to go okay, cool.
But porzingis thanking for your service. You got two games
out of you, Bo, you made it happen. That is
the tittle tattle.

Speaker 8 (21:13):
Stupid his name.

Speaker 4 (21:15):
The tittle tattle with giup? Are this a fun interview?
Book shamby the voice of Everything Cubs College Basketball, ESPN
Sunday Night Baseball video. We talked about it here. I'm like, man,

how many jobs you have? But he's done it all
a really interesting story. I enjoyed this a lot. I'm
also a big Cubs fan, so here he is book
shamby Hey, book what's up.

Speaker 8 (21:44):
Man, Bobby? What's happening? Man?

Speaker 4 (21:46):
Good to see you. Listen, Like, I know what you
do from what I see you do because I'm a
massive Cubs fan. But I had no idea you're like
a array of jobs, just in general, Like, how many
jobs do you have right now?

Speaker 9 (22:00):
I mean I do the Cubs and then I do
Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN Radio, and then I'm the
voice for ESPN the national voice of the baseball Playoffs,
so I get to call the World Series. That I
do college basketball on TV pre ESPN, and then I'm
the voice for MLB to show for Sony the video game.

Speaker 4 (22:22):
People often say to me, like when do you sleep?
I get to do this to somebody else. I feel
like you're always going. Is your calendar such an important
part of your life?

Speaker 8 (22:32):
It is?

Speaker 9 (22:32):
And then I think, probably you connect on this. There's
times where you just don't want to look at it.
I mean, you do. You have to organize it. It's funny,
I was just having a conversation with someone. There's also
just kind of honoring. You got to get some sleep
at times, and sometimes you know a meeting needs to
be pushed or postponed, and sometimes a workout does just

to make sure because I can't do what I need
to do on no rest.

Speaker 8 (22:57):
That would be That's one of the things.

Speaker 4 (22:59):
And yeah, same, it's like if I don't sleep, if
I'm touring or even the radio show, if I don't sleep,
like my voice shot and like I'll lose it or
allergy season, Like what are You've got to main, you
have a better voice than I do. My voice sucks.
If I had your voice, I would never be doing this.
I'll be doing what you're doing. Uh, what are you doing?
Will you do steroid shots? If like you're down, because

you got to keep that voice going.

Speaker 9 (23:21):
So now, for me, I thankfully have not had issues
with my voice. So it is not so much that
my voice gets tired. It's that, especially baseball, with the
amount of space that there is to fill, you're making
content choices, so it's brain to mouth. So I would say,

more than anything, I'm mentally tired.

Speaker 8 (23:46):
It's not.

Speaker 9 (23:47):
I mean, my voice gets tired, sure, but I find
more than anything, just the concentration level, you know, like
one of the things that's cool about baseball when you're
doing play by play that you know, as I've gotten
older and gotten whatever, more spiritual. But it's kind of
a mindfulness exercise. I can't describe and be present and

engage my partner and then engage the conversation in the
back of my head of did I leave the coffee
machine on that I close the garage door, and that's
a blessing, right, But I yeah, but it's still can
at times like you can get worn down and just
what comes out you say stupid stuff is what ends

up happening because your brain starts to slow down. So
that's more the way that I experienced the fatigue, not
quite as much with my voice.

Speaker 4 (24:37):
I was with Zach Brown, Zach Brown band singer a
couple of weeks, agoes over the house and we're talking
about because again, if you have to, I get brain
foged too. If I don't sleep brain fog I can't
be funny. And some people think I'm not funny anyway,
but I can't be quick witted if my brain same
thing when you're calling any sort of situation. But he
was talking about his voice, and he will pee in
a bucket because if he wakes up in the middle

of the night, it breaks up his sleep. The bucket
next to his bed and he just PE's in the bucket,
closes the bucket, and goes back to sleep. Now that's dedication.

Speaker 9 (25:06):
Wow, I connect on that in terms of that sometimes
getting up to go to the bathroom can disrupt my sleep.

Speaker 4 (25:14):
So let's send you a bucket booth.

Speaker 9 (25:17):
So yeah, I mean, I was just about to say
I'm gonna be on Amazon looking for after this.

Speaker 4 (25:21):
Okay, I have some generic baseball, but first I talk
about the Cobs, Like, what in the crap man? We
went from honestly, we I feel like I planned the team.
We went from you know, five, six over eight over.
Uh we can't hit now, it seems, and now are
we selling at the trade deadline instead of like what
is happening?

Speaker 9 (25:39):
It's been a pretty significant turn of events. The first
month of the season, things were going great and it
looked like, you know, this was one of the you know,
more powerful teams in the National League. Since then, I
would say that the starting point to the answer to
your question is it's just the way a baseball season works, right,
whether it's a team or a player. Nope, player that

hits two eighty hits two eighty and April to eighty
and May to eighty, in June to eighty. In July
they hit three hundred, two twenty one, ninety five, four hundred.
So what I would tell you, in my opinion is
this team will start to hit again. I do believe
that I think they have good starting pitching. There's one
area that's been disappointing. Their defense has been really, really subpar,

and I thought it would be an elite level defense.
I do think if there's one area that they have
to fix, as the bullpen, I don't think when totally healthy,
I don't think that the bullpen is good enough. And
that's been where Craig Council just you have guys pitching
in higher leverage.

Speaker 8 (26:42):
Situations than they should be.

Speaker 9 (26:44):
So the other thing where did it start the confluence
of events was say a Suzuki getting hurt, Cody Bellinger
getting hurt. So they're their two best hitters and they
go out and then slowly the trickle effect happens, and
then Swanson wasn't swinging well, He's been better. So I
also don't think the central is that good, so I

take a more optimistic view. I don't think they'll be
sellers at the deadline, but I'm not going to put
that at zero percent chance.

Speaker 4 (27:15):
You feel like Council shaped reshaped the culture.

Speaker 9 (27:17):
There, Yeah, I mean it's it's it's hard because I
know I know both you know both guys very well.
I mean, David Ross a good friend. I worked with
him for three years at ESPN. I met him with
the Braves back in two thousand and nine when I
was a play by play guy on TV for the
Atlanta Braves. Craig I've known since nineteen ninety seven when

we were both in our first year, him as a
player on the ninety seven Marlins and I was a broadcaster,
So we go back a long way.

Speaker 8 (27:48):
He's special. He is.

Speaker 9 (27:50):
I will say that, you know, the thing that he
really has is the ability to connect with the front office.
So they've been more rest of with roster moves, and
I think they'll continue to be so. And I he
has he has a very modern, uh look at things,

and I think, look, I would tell you this, I
don't think manager was a problem, and I don't think
that that's the way they viewed it. I think they
viewed that they were going to try to get their
hands on who they viewed as the best or one
of the couple best managers in the game. And I
think most people around it would say they noticed the impact.

Speaker 4 (28:31):
Did he have to move houses? I came from Milwaukee,
but we have college friend coaches that that they just
moved schools that were closed, Like did he have to move?

Speaker 5 (28:39):

Speaker 9 (28:39):
I mean his youngest daughter is uh is going into
her sophomore year a high school. So they stayed in
you know, Whitefish Bay in uh in Milwaukee. He has
a house that he rents in Chicago. But you know,
it's nice because it's close because his you know, it's
four kids, uh, two boys that play college baseball, one

at Minnesota and is draft eligible and the other one
just transferred from Michigan to Northwestern so and then Finley's
heading to the University of Arizona. So he's they're all close,
which is nice for him. And yeah, I mean, you know,
for where he lives, it's probably a you know, hour
forty minute drive.

Speaker 4 (29:22):
So this may be a two in the weeds question.
But with the pitch clock, and I'm not even talking
about what it does to the pitchers, it makes the
game more fun for me. But as a broadcaster, as
someone who's had to fill time in between pitches and
now it's quicker. Is that a different approach to the
game now because it's moving faster.

Speaker 9 (29:43):
It was a quick adjustment, by the way, I'm down
to going the weeds.

Speaker 8 (29:48):
I'm in on the question.

Speaker 9 (29:50):
I would just tell you that when I first started,
this is what it was like.

Speaker 8 (29:55):
So it's just kind of.

Speaker 9 (29:57):
You know, rechanneling the way you were lely did it
you know, there's about a seven year stretch before the
pitch clock where it was pretty bad in terms of
the three main things, and that was the ball wasn't
in play enough, time between pitches was too long, and
the games were too long, and you and how you
say that in one sentence, it's taking too long for

nothing to happen. So I think that the pitch clock
has been good for a broadcaster. Yes, there's times where
it's I've had to now it's it's pretty natural. But
it's just more going back to you know what it was.
I would say this, I think for you know, a
long stretch, a three man booth is fine in baseball.

I think it's a lot harder now to have three
three voices because of the pitch clock, because there just
isn't the space.

Speaker 4 (30:47):
With all the stats that you have now in stag
and is there a line that you want to walk
where you get some of them on but you don't
want to go two numbers all the time because it
may as overwhelm people.

Speaker 8 (30:59):
For sure.

Speaker 9 (31:00):
I mean I want it look part of my job.
I feel like I'm trying to deliver interesting and I'll
you know, make the choices. But yeah, you don't want
to turn it into math class. That's that's for that's
for sure. So you walk that line of trying. I
sort of pride myself on making some of that stuff digestible.

I would say this to you, I don't want to
turn it into math class, and I don't want to
overwhelm full stop. That said, if a modern front office
is evaluating players in a certain way, it's kind of
our responsibility to let the audience know how they're doing it,
you know, Like I've told stories where you know, I

texted Jed Hoyer in the middle of a game and
I asked him, do you know who leads our team
in RBIs? And he guessed them he was wrong, and
then our assistant GM guessed.

Speaker 8 (31:54):
Him he was wrong, you know.

Speaker 9 (31:55):
I like in the middle of a conversation too with
the Guardians general manager Mike Chernoff, and he was talking
when Aaron Savali pitched for them, and he was and
he stopped himself in the middle and he said, wait,
he's got a lot of a lot of wins, doesn't
he And he was leading the American League in wins.
And again I said, Cherney, will you let me tell
that story on the air, because so do you understand

my point that, like I don't want to turn it
into math class and get it too dorky. However, you know,
if everybody's sitting at home doing RBIs and Pitcher wins
and they're not paying attention to him, like your reality
of why you think X guy is good or how
you're evaluating a player is not what's happening.

Speaker 4 (32:35):
I had two final questions for you. One is you
when you were a kid, who was that team for you? Again,
mine was, you know, Grace of first, Samberg a second,
Sean Dunstan. I could get you know, you do the
whole Who was that for you? What team was that?

Speaker 8 (32:49):
It was the Philadelphia Phillies.

Speaker 9 (32:50):
It was Mike Schmid at third base, Larry Bowach short
Manny Trio at second, and Pete Rose at first when
they won in nineteen eighty.

Speaker 8 (32:59):

Speaker 9 (32:59):
I love the Philly's as a kid, I uh, And
I love baseball, And I think one of the things
I'm you know, I'm grateful for now is uh I
still love it the way I did as a you know,
as a six year old, I would say, but the Yeah,
the Phillies were my team. But now that it's just laundry,
and I it's the Cubs are personal for me. It's
just personal. So you know now it's it's shifted and

it's different, right.

Speaker 4 (33:23):
Yes, And you get to be an adult and you
have friends that do things like play sports, like Matt
Holliday is a dear friend of mine. To play for
the Cardinals. I hated the Cardinals. I hated the freaking
Cardinals with all my life and so and the what
was tough for me was we got invited by the
Cardinals to go up and practice with them. We went
up a couple of weeks ago. We worked with Paul Goldschmidt. Uh,
it was hard. It was really hard for me to
put on the jersey and the hat. Although I was

very grateful and we had a wonderful time, But that
was a struggle for me. What would that team have
been for you? If they're like, hey, come up, but
you're like, oh, man, I don't know if I can so.

Speaker 9 (33:53):
Because I work in the industry, it's a little bit different.
The thing that I will tell you I'm not like,
I'm not. I would tell you you're a die hard
Cubs fan. If I made you do some version of
this show where you were doing it as Cardinals centric
and you had to fly on the Cardinal plane for
the next four years. Bobby, I hate to tell you this,

but you'd root for the Cardinals.

Speaker 4 (34:18):
I hear. I can't agree with that. I mean, I
can fake it, probably would.

Speaker 8 (34:22):
I know, it's just personal. It's just laundry, dude.

Speaker 9 (34:27):
Like I'm telling you, Like, at a certain point, you know,
it's like I grew up being a Phillies fan, and
and then the Marlins are fighting against the Phillies, and
like I'm sitting next to Mike Lowell, you know what
I mean, Like, and we're talking on the plane. So
it just it would take time. But I'm it's just
it's hard to it's hard to make people understand that

if you if you're in the Weeds, like and however
big your fandom is, it would become way more personal
than it is now.

Speaker 4 (34:57):
Yeah, I hear. I think I would despy for my
own team. I'd be with the Arnold's, but I'd be
a secret spy feeding information back to the I would
root for Matt big time, play with the Cardinals, root
for him as a person. I have friends that would
like coach for the Longhorns. I hate Texas because I'm
from Arkansas, and I would root for them individually, but
that's tough.

Speaker 9 (35:13):
You'd be Bobby Bone's dark ops for sure.

Speaker 2 (35:15):

Speaker 4 (35:17):
And then final question for you here, but so one
hundred and sixty two games or however many games you're
doing plus back, do you ever just kind of forget
where you are? Like if tour sometimes I don't know
what city I'm in, If I'm like, oh man, does
that ever happen with you?

Speaker 9 (35:31):
The two are hotel wise, that will probably happen five
or six times a year where legitimately I wake up
and I don't know where I am, and then the
other one is and this is real where I am
sleeping so hard on a plane, not in a lay
flat on a plane, so like in a seat, I'm

sleeping so hard and I think I'm in my bed.

Speaker 4 (35:59):
That's wishing dreaming you were in your bed. Yeah, we
really really appreciate the time. You're the best, literally, you're
the best that does it. In my opinion, it just
what happens. You are with my favorite team and great
to talk to you. I appreciate the time.

Speaker 8 (36:12):
Thanks for having me, brother, see what all right?

Speaker 4 (36:15):
Thanks to Boog super cool. I'll get him on some
of the time. He text me right after that, he's like, hey,
mean that was fun?

Speaker 2 (36:20):
Really, yeah, oh that's cool.

Speaker 4 (36:22):
And I didn't book him, like I have a relationship
with him for something we've been working on together, but
I didn't book him. It was Lauren knew his nephew
or something or uncle and went to him and got
him that way because I was like, oh, Boog's on it,
and then I kind of felt bad. I was like, oh,
Kevin felt like he had a book Boog and didn't.
It was organic. It was awesome. Jerry West passes away

to eighty six years old. NBA legend Jerry West has
passed away. He was inducted in the Basketball Hall of
Fame three times as a player as an executive. How's
that three coach? I don't think he was. I don't
know how it was, but in three times, if it
was a player and an executive, even only a coach
for a little bit, and then he wasn't super successful

as a coach. He didn't do it for very long,
at least not according to that winning time on HBO.

Speaker 2 (37:09):
You get one for being logo, man.

Speaker 4 (37:12):
I don't think so. As a player, he was in
nine NBA Finals. He won one ring here in the
nickname Mister Clutch for his ability to boost his game
when it mattered most. When he retired, he was top
five in points, points per game, free throws, and assists.
He made the All Star team in every one of
his fourteen years in the league. He was the third
player to ever hit twenty five thousand points. As an executive,

he's credited for creating the Showtime Lakers with Magic and Kareem.
His biggest move was probably making all the phone calls
to get Kobe Bryant in the draft, Wow, and then
going to sign Shaquille O'Neill from Orlando. He also won
Executive the Year with the Memphis Grizzlies and later worked
with the Warriors and Clippers. He was awarded the Presidential

Medal of Freedom of twenty nineteen. And he is the
logo Man. He's that logo.

Speaker 2 (37:55):
He is the logo Man, even though they won't admit it, right,
I think the league won't admit that that's him.

Speaker 4 (38:01):
But that's true. They never officially say that they know
that it's him. Really well, everybody knows it's him. I
didn't know. They ever like formally said I.

Speaker 6 (38:07):
Still have to pay him or something.

Speaker 2 (38:08):
I don't know.

Speaker 4 (38:08):
And now they're like, who do we make the new logo? Man,
you don't have to change anything. I know.

Speaker 2 (38:13):
That's what it is. Yeah, leave it.

Speaker 4 (38:14):
They're like, should it be Kobe? I'm like, well, Kobe's
dead too, So what's up?

Speaker 2 (38:17):
What it was?

Speaker 4 (38:17):
Right? If you're doing it because he died, we're gonna
pick somebody else dead, that's not good. You know, you
leave it. Yeah, it's a cool brand. That's when the
Sporting News something else that I saw. I was looking
at the high school baseball stats of some players that
are famous. Now I want to read you some stuff
here when they were in high school. His freshman year,
Bryce Harper batted five ninety oh my god, yeah, with

eleven home run sixty seven RBI. His sophomore year, Bryce
Harper badded six twenty six.

Speaker 2 (38:43):
She's Louise. I mean that's when you know, like all
the scouts are on him.

Speaker 4 (38:48):
Like nenth grade he batted six twenty six. That inane
Clayton Kershaw. He threw Highland Park from Yeahcu went to
school Matthew Safford, which we hear about every time they played. Yeah, yeah,
did you guys know he he threw a five inning
perfect game where he struck out all fifteen batters he faced,
threw five innings. They pulled him afterward because they were
winning so much, but he faced fifteen batters. He struck
out every batter all fifteen. He finished that season thirteen

to oh with a zero point seven ERA sixty four
innings pitched and one hundred and thirty nine strikeouts, so
over two an inning all year Waller Byron Buckston five
thirteen average. His senior year, he went ten to one.
Also as a pitcher with a one ERA. Washington pitcher
Mackenzie Gore eleven to O zero point one to nine ERA.

Mike Mustacks senior year five seventy seven average twenty four
home runs, which, by the way, they played like twenty
two games or something, right, He twenty four home runs.

Speaker 2 (39:42):
It's crazy.

Speaker 4 (39:44):
Marlins pitcher Ryan Weathers senior year ten and O a
zero point zero nine ERA, seventy six innings pitched, one
hundred and forty eight strikeouts.

Speaker 2 (39:53):
Gosh, I bet you everyone on that team just loved him.

Speaker 4 (39:55):
Carrie Woods senior year fourteen and O zero point seven.
I have an e r a eighty one innings pitch,
one hundred and fifty two strikeouts. I think of the
status from those bros. That's crazy.

Speaker 2 (40:07):
Mookie Bets went to high school like right kind of
around you know, my neck of the woods really and
I drove by the that baseball stadium all the time
or whatever, and I'm like, gosh, it'd be cool to
see like Mookie Bets play there.

Speaker 4 (40:19):
Hey, Mike, do we need to go to break or
are we going to We want to do our segment
now that we just recorded. That's about all of us
catching up online can go to break right now. Okay,
let's take a break on the radio show on the
Bobby Bone Show. And you know we mentioned this, but
read sings the new thing that we play, it's like
so quick up wick up, and it's just bizarre. Before

we play it, I would just like when Reid talks,
I'm Reid, and you know I have a lot of
thoughts about stuff, and so we talked. But then when
he's singing and he's like up hosiers, It's like he's
banging when he's singing, but when he's like not, he's

like lost.

Speaker 2 (41:03):
Just how do I get here?

Speaker 6 (41:05):
Where's my wallet?

Speaker 4 (41:07):
Does that car drive? So it's just two different people. Mike,
do you have it? I have it? Okay, here it is.
Here's racing all right? Wake up, wake up in the mall.

Speaker 10 (41:18):
And you turn the radio and the doves keeps on time?
Here and lunchbox more get cho Steve Bred have it
trying to put you through fog.

Speaker 4 (41:30):
He's riding this wigs next bit. The Bobby's on the box,
so you know what this.

Speaker 3 (41:40):
The Bobby ball.

Speaker 4 (41:42):
Would have never known that was you? Bad lips was
the funnest part. Would you know? Would you have known
it was him? Katie?

Speaker 3 (41:49):
No, I wouldn't have.

Speaker 4 (41:50):
Are you sure that's you? Did you manipulate your voice
to make it? No?

Speaker 1 (41:54):
I didn't.

Speaker 4 (41:54):
I know I did.

Speaker 1 (41:55):
I did a little bit of auto tune to like
punch it to the next level, but nothing cozy and sess.

Speaker 4 (42:00):
Fine too, every but I'm saying, like, make it deeper?

Speaker 2 (42:03):
How does he do that? Wake on? Work on in
the morning?

Speaker 3 (42:07):
Right now?

Speaker 1 (42:37):
Like like you're like you're scanning the channels, like you're
turning the radio.

Speaker 2 (42:39):
It's like nineteen twenty.

Speaker 4 (42:40):
Yeah, man, you got two of them exactly. Wake up,

Speaker 1 (43:13):
And then and Bobby is on the mic, so you
know what this is.

Speaker 4 (43:18):
This is Bobby Bunch.

Speaker 6 (43:22):
That's good, dude, Thank you man, really good.

Speaker 4 (43:24):
That's good for a rooster over there. I love that.
So my wife calls red rooster. Why So we were
in the car once. I think we're in Fayetteville and
I was playing Alison Chains Rooster. You know, do you
know the song doing Man. Yeah, they come to stuff
the Rooster and reads like I hate this song. And

we're like, sorry, he's like I.

Speaker 2 (43:49):
Hate he's not singing, he's not like I hate song.

Speaker 6 (43:54):
Pretty good actually pretty good.

Speaker 2 (43:57):
So that's pretty accurate.

Speaker 4 (44:00):
And we're like why, how one, why do you hate
it too? How do you know it?

Speaker 9 (44:03):

Speaker 4 (44:03):
Because Reid's younger, it's like when I was in a fraternity,
they abducted me and left you in the woods in
this song, We're like, what and so what happened before
we finished the story? Ah? So am I getting trouble? Oh?

Speaker 8 (44:16):
Do you care?

Speaker 4 (44:16):
I don't care. No, no, don't get in trouble.

Speaker 2 (44:18):
They take us to a spot.

Speaker 4 (44:20):
Can you say this? Yeah, I don't want you to
feel pressure.

Speaker 2 (44:24):
They take us to a spot.

Speaker 1 (44:25):
We don't know where we're going, you know, we're a
little scared. We're like new pledges and how many of
you all at the time, there's like third twenty five thirty.

Speaker 4 (44:36):
Did they wake you up? Do they wake up? Is
in the middle of the night though?

Speaker 3 (44:42):

Speaker 4 (44:42):
Okay, yeah, So and then apparently they were playing that
song the whole time and it's a creepy song.

Speaker 2 (44:48):
So they took them out to the woods, right, like
how far you.

Speaker 1 (44:52):
Get in a car and you don't know where you're going?
But they're like, and this.

Speaker 4 (44:56):
Are you blindfolded?

Speaker 8 (44:58):

Speaker 4 (44:58):
You don't say too much.

Speaker 1 (44:59):
Yeah, blindfolded, Yeah you can't see.

Speaker 4 (45:00):
We'll say that god fless.

Speaker 1 (45:03):
I hate that song, dude, but you're just like, you
know it kind of you're kind of like scared. You
don't know what time it is, you don't know where
you're going. You're in somebody's truck there. You can hear
it peeling pilling down the road, gravel roads, and it's
just blaring that song the whole time for like an
hour and a half, two hours. You don't even you
lose track of time.

Speaker 2 (45:21):
Two hours.

Speaker 4 (45:22):
So there's driving circles, basically just screwing with you, right, Okay,
So it's like, I mean, imagine that you're blind, you
don't know where you are, you're naked.

Speaker 2 (45:31):
I mean, Reid said, are we Reid said that, like
you know, you thought he was dying, like he was
about to die.

Speaker 4 (45:38):
So we were playing that song. It's like uh, a
song doesn't even feel good, he said, I don't like it.
So that was the first. But my wife when we
played cards, always played like a nineties all turned to
play list. She hates it, but this song comes on
and it always reminds her of Read. So Read's been
working out with us a little bit, and so we
have speakers outside that you can catch control bluetooth. And
one day we're just working out and I didn't hit
the song, and all of a sudden, the song starts

to blare over the speakers in our yard, and I'm like,
that's weird, and I just thought maybe one of my
So my wife's was dicking with Reid playing Rooster while
working out. She had taken control was just right, And
so that story, she calls him Rooster. When she referred
to him, she calls him Rooster, which is funny. And
so I don't know why this story started, but my

wife calls Read Rooster. I kind of like you to Read.
I don't know where I know. We're talking about the
song and Rooster.

Speaker 6 (46:30):
You just called him rooster, and then oh I did.

Speaker 4 (46:32):
I was describing the story.

Speaker 1 (46:33):
Rooster's been working out like I can feel it. I'm
like I don't like it. No, not that, just like
the constant pump from from while it.

Speaker 6 (46:43):
Feels good, how's he doing great?

Speaker 4 (46:46):
He tries hard and that's all. That's all you do
it First, when Eddie first started, how I knew he
lastes he tried hard, even if when he didn't, because
it's new, you're everything. It's not even that it's heavy
or not heavy. You're just doing lifting weights and ways.
You probably haven't left the weights in ten fifteen years. Yeah,
and so it's all new. So as long as you like,
try hard, you're gonna figure it out. And read tries hard.

Eddie tried hard. Now Eddie has it and Eddie's really strong.
But there was like three or four Monthshereddy's just figuring
it out and he was just killing himself trying hard,
and you just knew he'd last. And read the same
way read are you?

Speaker 2 (47:17):
Are you past the like I can't do this point
because at the very beginning you feel like you're dying
every work out, like I don't know why I can
do this.

Speaker 1 (47:24):
Oh yeah, like on the verge of throwing up or
passing out the entire time.

Speaker 4 (47:28):
Reid makes a lot of excuses still, like he's still.

Speaker 2 (47:30):
In that phase undercooked salmon, what was the last one.

Speaker 4 (47:32):
He's getting to the point he still does it, but
he's getting he's be getting better because I had a
little talk with him.

Speaker 2 (47:36):
I pulled him to the side so we don't do this.

Speaker 4 (47:39):
He was like, you know, I don't know how good
I'm gonna do today because my salmon was undercooked.

Speaker 2 (47:44):
And I said, I never heard that.

Speaker 4 (47:46):
I said, that's perilla thing, your stomach being messed up
as a ferrilla thing. I said, but if you can't go,
you shouldn't go, Like, don't don't push yourself. But if
you can go, don't talk about it. Yes, nobody wants
to hear you complaining about something, and it's not going
to make me look at you more favorably for doing
it while your stomach was hurt. But if you can't go,
don't go. Literally, it's like, if you're sick, don't come
to work. We're not gonna judge you. You're sick, you

shouldn't be here. But if you can't show up to work,
work right. And so he's breaking out of that done
every day. It was something though there's.

Speaker 1 (48:14):
Been a couple of times I'm like, I want to
say something, I'm I'm.

Speaker 4 (48:17):
Not going to do it, Like yesterday is something flared
up and I was like, read, I don't remember what
it was.

Speaker 2 (48:22):
I don't want to take the credit. But you have
used my foot for example, Like look at Eddie. He's
got a broken foot and there I am still like.

Speaker 4 (48:29):
Hey, all jokes aside. Eddie's not missed a single day
with a man. He's not doing the same workout because
he can't, but he's down there, yeah, showing up and grinding.

Speaker 7 (48:38):
Read have you missed any no, like ones that you
already committed to and then bailed last minute or so He's.

Speaker 4 (48:44):
Never committed and bailed. Okay, good, He's never missed when
we were having a workout. There have been days we
haven't done because I've been gone. Yeah, or but you know,
reads like he still looks pretty goofy when he does it,
but everybody doesn't tell they're not goofy anymore.

Speaker 6 (48:57):
But what's your workout?

Speaker 4 (48:58):

Speaker 7 (48:59):
Like if you've never really bench press and it's kind
of weird to get used to. It's one of those
things like riding a bicycle. Will once you.

Speaker 6 (49:04):
Get it, you get it?

Speaker 4 (49:05):
Are you stay now?

Speaker 2 (49:06):

Speaker 4 (49:07):
He's getting it.

Speaker 6 (49:07):
So you never really did, like in high school like
any of that.

Speaker 1 (49:10):
No, like eighth and ninth grade, but like they didn't
teach us like proper technique, right, like go lift this weight.

Speaker 6 (49:15):
So like that's why Kevin Clue's the.

Speaker 1 (49:16):
Best man Luke Fitness shout out, because he will like
he teaches you the fundamentals to where like like in
bench press, That's what I'm saying. That's why you know
you learn to clinch, clinch the booty cheeks, you know,
and you want to push a little bit with your legs.
I'm I'm like in the beginning, I'm just trying to
push with straight ma like just with my arms, and
I can't lift anything.

Speaker 4 (49:35):
He's growing out of baby deer just born trying to
walk on ice. Okay, he's growing out of that because
it's just really unnatural. And he's so tall and long,
yeah big, but he's Riata is like oddly athletic in
certain like ways you don't expect. Like he could throw
a baseball, you can launch, he could throw knuckleballs.

Speaker 7 (49:54):
Well do the guy's driver. I mean, golf in general
is good, but his driver is insane.

Speaker 2 (49:58):
Even his jump shot it is really nice.

Speaker 4 (50:00):
Oh yeah, play basketball with them really At.

Speaker 2 (50:02):
Some of our shoots in Florida State, he'd get the ball.
You watch him, it's like a perfect jump shot.

Speaker 4 (50:08):
But we played knockout and that's real kind of suck.
But yeah, so that's been going pretty good. Eddie's about
to be back in and proud of you. Yeah, show
messed up.

Speaker 2 (50:21):
I'm not missing though all the legs stuff though, because
I mean I watched you guys still do squats and
like lunges and all that.

Speaker 4 (50:26):
My pants aren't are It's hard to put on jeans
if they're like they're already borderline because your legs never grow.
It feels like they never grow if you work out.
We've been doing it so hard for like two or
three years. Like my quads now have been the bigger.
My butt is bigger and I can feel it in
my pants pull them on. It's crazy heavy, yes, yeah.

Speaker 6 (50:45):
Like you're adding more weight, like Eddie, you've probably but heavy.

Speaker 4 (50:49):
Right, what's what's heavy? Ben Bean? Because I maybe weaker
than you, but like.

Speaker 6 (50:52):
Like yeah, three to five ropes?

Speaker 4 (50:54):
Oh yeah, okay, yeah, like I did Dead Left. I
think I was in six reps of like two seventy
five okay to eighty to eighty five something like that,
and that gets to be pretty heavy. Yeah, but hed,
but we're not gonna do two reps if anything.

Speaker 7 (51:10):
Okay, because we're not trying to do That's what I'm
wondering more so like reps not necessarily like what wait
are you doing?

Speaker 6 (51:15):
But are you doing like you know or you can't
do it anymore? And you gotta have a spotterer.

Speaker 2 (51:19):
And with Kevin Klue, shout out.

Speaker 4 (51:21):
Vin, Kevin cls ever did it?

Speaker 2 (51:23):
You know? With him, you can't tell him that anything
like feels good, like oh yeah, this wait is perfect.
I can't say that, oh, because then he'll give you more.

Speaker 6 (51:31):
Does he ever work out with you?

Speaker 4 (51:32):
Yeah? With me sometimes if it was just me, it
wud work out. And oh he's a college player. He's massive.
Sometimes he'll post videos like showing how to do stuff
like squat. He's massive. His brother played the Titans. Twin brother.
Oh wow, was he a d line was the defensive lineman.

Speaker 2 (51:49):
I remember I didn't know Kevin then, but I remember
seeing the last name Clue because I would see his
trucks around town and then I saw Clue. All right,
But in the back of the jersey when like we
just watching a game on TV. Like I wondered, that's
the same dude. Now, now's his twin brother.

Speaker 4 (52:01):
True, And Kevin's got a girlfriend shout out, which a
little check up here. Kevin's got little girlfriend.

Speaker 6 (52:06):
How's that going going great?

Speaker 8 (52:08):

Speaker 4 (52:08):
Really, guys talking about serious stuff.

Speaker 2 (52:09):
Yeah, she's she's the one.

Speaker 4 (52:11):
Yeah, sure, yes, yeah. Atdie's foot is when you get
the boot.

Speaker 2 (52:14):
Off healing dude. Yesterday I walked around the house for about,
like I don't know, fifteen minutes or so, and for
the first time, it didn't hurt. I mean I would
still kind of sprints. No, no, no, no, no, he's a
Kevin Luke shout out, shut out.

Speaker 4 (52:28):
Reid is moving in how many months? Now? Nine months?

Speaker 6 (52:32):

Speaker 1 (52:34):
I don't know where I'll be It depends, but yes,
he won't find.

Speaker 4 (52:37):
Out until months. He can't stay here because of his
fiance's job. But you're for sure moving, You just don't

When you have, you'll remember that brings it back.

Speaker 5 (53:02):
Got it personally, I'm going a rush to get back

Do you have a year to let finish? Don't you?

Speaker 8 (53:06):

Speaker 4 (53:06):

Speaker 3 (53:06):
I mean, so you graduated, yeah I have, I have.
I have a college degree.

Speaker 4 (53:13):
Okay, but you're in the middle of grad.

Speaker 5 (53:15):
School kind of I looped it with my first my
first year. I lived my first year of grad school
with my senior year, so I technically have one year
under my belt.

Speaker 4 (53:23):
Then why not finish and get one more year?

Speaker 3 (53:25):
Because it's not really what I want to do anymore.

Speaker 5 (53:28):
It was I just felt like it was the right
path at one point because I wanted to be a
teacher at one point later on in my career.

Speaker 3 (53:33):
But I'm not sure.

Speaker 5 (53:34):
And that's why I was getting my master's so I
could be certified to do that.

Speaker 3 (53:36):
But I'm not so sure.

Speaker 4 (53:36):
Now what do you what do you want to do? Well?

Speaker 3 (53:39):
I like this. I would like to stay here, but
you know.

Speaker 4 (53:42):
You sound like read like a version of what happens?

Speaker 2 (53:49):
What does that mean.

Speaker 4 (53:51):
For you? Just in general?

Speaker 5 (53:52):
Oh my gosh, you're it's like letting a kid loose
in a candy store. Because the concerts here, I'm i AM,
but I don't know anyone here. So I've been going
by myself. But I've been having a great time.

Speaker 4 (54:03):
And wow, you're secure enough to go to concerts by yourself.
Good for you. I did.

Speaker 3 (54:08):
I went to see am A Fest by myself. So okay.

Speaker 5 (54:10):
The first night I went with my one friend in
town and a couple of her friends, and then that
friend agreed to buy tickets for Saturday night. But then
Saturday morning told me she didn't want to go anymore.
So I was up with two tickets. So I found
a stranger on Facebook marketplace. I went to the concert
with a stranger.

Speaker 4 (54:25):

Speaker 3 (54:25):
Yeah, it was great time, dude, but not really.

Speaker 4 (54:30):
That's really the dating side I audio to. Yeah.

Speaker 5 (54:33):
No, he was my age though, so like it wasn't
like like a nine year old man, and.

Speaker 4 (54:37):
He just wanted to go. He was like, I'll go
for three and you guys sat together.

Speaker 3 (54:42):
Well, okay.

Speaker 5 (54:42):
That was the thing is that Landy Wilson was playing
whenever I got there, so I just busted through the
gates trying to get to my seat as soon as
I could, and he goes, Katie.

Speaker 3 (54:49):
Are you Katie? Where did you meet the dude Facebook marketplace?

Speaker 4 (54:54):
No? No, no, where did we have a meeting place?
Or do you meet at the seats? Oh?

Speaker 3 (54:58):
Well I was. I think he would.

Speaker 5 (54:59):
He had just gotten there too, and I just I
was busting through to get to my seat because I
wanted to hear Lanny Wilson play. And he saw me walking.
He gets recognized me from Facebook and he was like, hey, God.

Speaker 4 (55:08):
So he just happened to see you. But your seats
were together.

Speaker 3 (55:10):
Yeah they would have been.

Speaker 5 (55:11):
But I was bootlegging seats all week because I had
a seat up in the nosebleeds because they were cheaper.
But then I would just find other places to sit.
But then I also went Sunday by myself, completely by myself.

Speaker 4 (55:21):
This isn't she a bulldog?

Speaker 2 (55:23):
This is at the stadium?

Speaker 3 (55:24):
Yeah, it was Nissan.

Speaker 5 (55:26):
And then on sat on Sunday that was just I
was completely alone on Sunday. But whenever I got there,
a nice surprise was that Zach Topp was performing too,
So I just had a great I had a great weekend,
all the music, all the surprises.

Speaker 2 (55:38):
That's true.

Speaker 4 (55:39):
Yeah, yeah, like you're cooler than me. After that conversation, crap, Hey,
I worry since I'm gone and I'm gone again, and
I'm like, you know, some days you have stuff to
edit and some days you but some days there's like not,
you know, there's nothing that read has the same issues
sometimes so it's nothing to do. Somebodys there's a lot
to do. And I'm like, man, I hope she's not
out there just being miserable by herself. You're not, no, no.

Speaker 5 (55:57):
My first night in town, I went and saw Stevie
Nicks by myself because I had to, like, there was
a two opportune.

Speaker 4 (56:03):
You know, that's pretty crazy.

Speaker 2 (56:05):
Have you found good restaurants or anything that you like here?

Speaker 3 (56:07):
Not restaurants.

Speaker 5 (56:09):
I went to trivia last night with my friend and
her mom at Rock and Dough over by the Nations
Pizza Place.

Speaker 3 (56:14):
Pizza Place. Y Trivia. Dude was so intense. He was
very big stickler for the rules.

Speaker 4 (56:21):
But yeah, yeah, will follower.

Speaker 5 (56:24):
I was raised by a long line of non serious people, jokesters,
but so he was.

Speaker 3 (56:30):
Not not similar to me at all, but yeah.

Speaker 5 (56:33):
Restaurants wise re read laughs at me every time I
talk about Trader Joe's. I don't have one anywhere I've
ever lived before.

Speaker 4 (56:40):
Yeah, when you get a Trader Joe's, it's cool for
a little bit. Ye.

Speaker 2 (56:43):
Yeah, Orange Chickens where it's at?

Speaker 3 (56:45):
Okay, I need to try it. Yeah, I was trying
to read.

Speaker 5 (56:47):
They don't have the many tacos here at the Tennessee
Trader Joe's like they had at the one Texas one.

Speaker 6 (56:53):
I've been to the Frozen ones.

Speaker 3 (56:54):
Yeah, the Mini Talkers, Yeah, I've seen them where.

Speaker 6 (56:56):
There's two locations out here, which Trader Joe's. Are you
going the one?

Speaker 4 (57:00):
You guys should do your Turner Jow podcast. Yeah, Katie,
do you like what like so like, what do you
want to do now you've been here? Do you feel
like you've been exposed to stuff that you want to
do that maybe you didn't know was a thing?

Speaker 2 (57:14):

Speaker 3 (57:15):
I just think that.

Speaker 5 (57:17):
So the thing about grad school is that it's all
just papers about things theory, journalism theory, which I mean,
what is that? And so I just it's not really
what I it's not really what I you know, I
can always go back, but personally and I only have.

Speaker 4 (57:31):
You sounds like a senior in high school going to
the NBA. I can always go to college. Yeah, yeah,
the weird thing for me this way. They when I
sold my house, they put it on TMZ and I
had nothing to do with it. I didn't know there's
gonna be a t MZ di do you guys see it?

Speaker 3 (57:42):
No, I saw that.

Speaker 2 (57:43):
It's so weird here houses on TMZ.

Speaker 4 (57:46):
They were Yeah, it was a picture of me, and
they were like, bybone sells house and it was everything
what I bought it for, what I sold it for.

Speaker 2 (57:52):
How do they get that stuff?

Speaker 4 (57:53):
No idea, how do they even know? And so yeah
it's on TMZ.

Speaker 2 (57:56):
Hey, don't look at I didn't say anything. Man, it
wasn't me.

Speaker 4 (57:59):
There might be some there must be some sort of
like lea insider dad, Yes, but I know it wasn't
my realtor because my realtor is the wife of rod
or Boss, who I know is not gonna but yeah, no,
PopEd up my team's in starting tag.

Speaker 2 (58:15):
I was like, what is what huh?

Speaker 4 (58:16):
And then it was like picture of me in like
a suit and it's like buys home for this much?

Speaker 6 (58:20):
Look you sure editing this unloads.

Speaker 4 (58:22):
Yeah, I mean I made a lot of money off
of it, but it was it was it was bizarre
to be up there. Yeah, I sound like in a
word show or something.

Speaker 2 (58:31):
They magant look like you're outside your pool, just like in.

Speaker 4 (58:34):
A suit, And I wasn't. I had nothing to do
with it, like I just had it. Had I not
been tagged in it, I would have had no idea.
So that was a bizarre feeling to get that message
and the people are like, you're not talking about it
what I.

Speaker 2 (58:49):
Was talk about?

Speaker 6 (58:51):
How do you feel like? Do you feel like it's
a mixed invasion of privacy?

Speaker 4 (58:55):
A little bit? It's a mix mostly it feels not
mostly I'm gonna go fifty fifty because it's close to that,
like fifty to fifty. Half of it is, Oh that's
pretty cool. TMZ thinks I'm kind famous enough to even care. Yes,
that would mean that I don't really care about the
fame part of it, But that would mean that I
I've maintained a level of success that has uh basically

turned into what is fame to some people on the
other side, Yeah, it feels freaking odd that that that
they know what I bought my house for and what
I sold it for and the money I.

Speaker 2 (59:28):
Made because that in regular life, I am none of
their business.

Speaker 4 (59:33):
I never shared that, right, I don't talk about money.

Speaker 2 (59:35):
And in our business, like we pick what we want
to talk about, like we'd pick what we want people
to know.

Speaker 4 (59:40):
This really really personal stuff. Yeah, so it's fine. But
it was like half weird, half not weird. Oh yeah, no,
I killed, you did great? Yeah I killed.

Speaker 8 (59:50):

Speaker 4 (59:50):
But Eddie knew it all anyway because I tell Leddy
that stuff. Oh yeah, I crushed.

Speaker 6 (59:55):

Speaker 2 (59:55):
Yeah it's great.

Speaker 4 (59:56):
Not on purpose. I mean, it wasn't like a bought
it going on, I'm going to do this right, but
yeah crushed. I mean my housing market went boom boom.
I happened to get very lucky to buy it right
when COVID was making houses go down for like a
month at the beginning of COVID because my wife, who's
my not even my fiance yet, my girlfriend had just
moved here and I was like, I need a studio,
a place with a studio outside. So we got super

fortunate bought it then and then yeah, I know we killed.

Speaker 8 (01:00:20):
That's awesome. Good for you.

Speaker 4 (01:00:22):
They they say, who you sold it to or they,
But he's just a business guy. Like whoever I sold
it to isn't famous or anything. Morgan Wall looked at
it for a while. Post Malone wanted to rent it
for a while. I didn't want to do a long
term rent though I wanted to sell it off. That's
a funny way to say.

Speaker 2 (01:00:38):
And I don't see post Malone really taking care of
a house, you know, you know.

Speaker 4 (01:00:41):
Maybe the opposite. But I like him. I like him. Yeah,
that was that was a weird thing too. That's it.
I hope you guys have a good weekend. Go MAVs.
Just for the economy.

Speaker 2 (01:00:55):
Hey win one.

Speaker 6 (01:00:56):
Hey, just how boring is it for you guys?

Speaker 4 (01:00:57):
Just for the economy. I mean, I don't care. Really,
Eddie picked them, picked both teams.

Speaker 2 (01:01:02):
So I'm kind of like it. But it's kind of
fun watching it without any kind of like pool I'm
pulling for anyone or whatever. So I mean I kind
of like it. It's it's still.

Speaker 6 (01:01:08):
Entertaining, but still like three to zero. And I'm not
saying that a cocky but I'm just asking that they
must have wanted to.

Speaker 4 (01:01:13):
Sweep, because like you said, they want they wanted to
wanted to so mm hmm, yeah, I told them so.
It's okay. I'm losing much money out like that, but.

Speaker 2 (01:01:23):
Keep going with the MAVs. They're gonna win one.

Speaker 4 (01:01:26):
Famous last words. I know, I know, famous freaking last words.

Speaker 2 (01:01:32):
I got them the last game. I got them at
plus five. I'm like, God, we can do this. I
think they ended up plus six.

Speaker 8 (01:01:37):

Speaker 4 (01:01:37):
When I put the money on seven plus six and
a half off by seven, that always saw, especially when
they're not fouling and they need to foul. Yeah, thatck
is killing me. That's it. Thank you guys, and we
will see you next week. Blow the whistle. Let's get
out of dodge, you know, all right? Say got it
to France? Hey, get this to get you going an Okay,

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
