Jeff:

God like the parent. Like a fucking Travis Scott concert and just start killing my fuckers

Anthony:

before we get to the hole up so every I don't even know. I don't know how that shit works. But so whenever that whenever it's your birthday, right? That's the date that we quote unquote, fall back. What do you mean? Like we had to rewind clocks an hour?

Jeff:

Even I don't think that falls on a certain day. I think that's just a certain weekend. No. Like next year. It might not land on my birthday. I think. I don't know how to shoot works. Normally always on a weekend. Yeah, there's always on like the Sunday, the first Sunday, or the first Saturday or whatever of the month, isn't it? Thanks. So so this year, my birthday was on a Saturday my next year. I guess it will probably be on a Sunday. So I guess

Anthony:

I just looked this it says next year in November six. Okay, sure. So and that's on a Sunday. There you go. Mr. Daylight Savings Time.

Jeff:

The following year, probably. I guess though, yeah. I'm gonna be on my birthday. Right.

Anthony:

It'd be that funny. Sunday to be the fifth. So yeah, so that first weekend? Yeah. So it's lining up for you, sir. So So technically, you're younger, you're an hour younger than you're supposed to be shit. I don't know if I fill it in next year. You're

Jeff:

gonna be another hour young boy. Phones and she just to get out of bed. You got to get your body out of neutral in the morning. But she is gonna fucking suck. Shout out to everybody who celebrated with me. Shout out to our patrons, the people. You know, speaking of our patrons, the grandkids are one of our patrons. You know, he wants us to mention him by name every week. You know, I'm saying he's like, Yo, I'm paying patron. I'm paying to get my name mentioned.

Anthony:

You know it's funny. I don't I don't know his actual full given

Jeff:

government. No, we do because we we've talked about it. Eric Roble is from Eric's cleaning services.

Anthony:

But I'm so used to using grant.

Jeff:

Eric Nelson. Nelson robola. Santana

Anthony:

Yeah. But it's one of them things like like, once you say it for so long. Like I like now that you say it clears my mind and knows him Kaiser Esquire services, right? But the whole thing is like, once a name sticks with you. It's kind of hard to change it. It's like, how many people actually know what flavor flavor his real name is?

Jeff:

Anybody know his name? And that's it.

Anthony:

No, no, no, ruin him. William Drayton. But no one's gonna call him it's always going to be flavorfully Right? It's not like the real name to X Men character. William tradewheel Drayton

Jeff:

fucking war and war the third

Anthony:

what kind of superpowers we've got my clock can reverse time. Okay, isn't it and I bum rush to show get a game but you know, like, go ahead fleet. sit us down. We that AstroWorld shit. Earth?

Jeff:

Yes. Is that right? Yeah. And what they call it a surge. Yeah, yeah. Travis Scott, a world class

Anthony:

as it happens, you get a bunch of people. And it takes one person to run one way than other waiting. I see the mass of humanity coming towards you. If you're not going fast enough or quick enough, you're getting trampled or stomped or whatever. And I mean, I think I think they at the festival is that the 50,000 people they're not at that moment, but I think just in total, but just being around that stage and all the other stuff occurring. I mean, it's sad that it happened but it's not you know, unexpected. And I'm not saying that because it's Travis Scott descending because I constantly wish it's happened all the time. People get trampled and stomped and run over like like mad cardiac arrest events which is super weird like people out here having trucks at the sharpest got content but flux going on here was a thing. It's called astral world. And I think it's something to have every single year just the whole thing fucking fell apart in cancer that shouldn't Did hundreds hurt? Cheer? They canceled this shit. It's a pretty bigger I'm looking at right now. But no, no I was wrong. That's it said approximately 50,000 Yep 50,000 people fucking do that foof

Jeff:

I don't know. Anyway, like I said, I'm gonna be all over the place today. There's just so much to talk about. And it's my birthday and I don't give a shit. So whatever.

Anthony:

I need a cute gooey raggedy

Jeff:

shout out to Nia we had on last week as a special guest not to say like the episode but some people was complaining that chewing speaking of sun, so I want to read some messages because somebody Sebastian hit me up and said, Yo, this dude Anthony needs to talk more sun. And then one of our patrons. Alex Jose said Anthony does not talk when there's guests on ever. I was like shit, I'm gonna have to address it with my man. Maybe he's going through some. Oh, no,

Anthony:

wait, wait. So So Alex is paying her other dues and I know hang on, you're finishing. Okay, so So Alex is not valid? Because he's No. Absolutely not. So So Alex. So Alex is more like when a guest is dead. They got something to say. So I wanted to try to let them cook. I don't want to intervene. And for the dude that said, you know, I don't talk and he's been this gentleman. It's not paying right right. I'm cool. You suck my dick. Let them talk. For Fair enough. I mean, I've been trying to let people go ahead and speak speak the truth. I'm trying to cut them off and go into a business like desert none of you here to promote yo shit we here to listen. So go ahead and talk and like I say she's all bubbly and have personality man my personality can be like greatest fuck, like a jet like a jet we may let her be happy.

Jeff:

Oh, and I got some some shit I wanted to share. There's there's a there's a podcast platform called good pods. You know, we're signed up. You know, we got our podcasts on there. Playing

Anthony:

I'll go and play the song for you for your birthday. But I can't play it. I got

Jeff:

it. I'm so good pods. It's a Yeah, app. It's a website clip. I got 1000s of podcasts on them. And we made the and we talked about sports, but we don't our shit is not really about sports. Right? Right. But still they included us because our society and culture and in sports is a sub category for us. You know, I mean, right? So they included us in their top 20 Sports podcast, we actually were number 19

Anthony:

We're not going to probably talk about sports.

Jeff:

The sports podcast we made the top 20 though but I want you know eventually I want to make obviously the list of the society and coach's podcast. I

Anthony:

don't know man Don't be just like yo, we're gonna start talking about more Nick's

Jeff:

already rolling right now. You show up at that Wi Fi actually got me to the Knicks game bear night so against the Cleveland Cavaliers good.

Anthony:

That's good. Shoot, enjoy it. I think I think when you go to the game, I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised.

Jeff:

Okay. What does that mean? Do you know what?

Anthony:

I know? Some things nigga relax. I'm not saying that you like like, I'm gonna show up for some shit. Or like, like, you're gonna get on the next cam. No, the fuck out here. I got that kind of money. Understanding like when you go you're gonna miss the price. Trust me. Okay. Just relax. Relax. There's gonna be a good time for you.

Jeff:

Jay Z was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Dave Chappelle and Barack Obama speech he actually named Dame dash and Biggs Correct. Yes. Which you know was dope of him. I mean, you got to thank the man you know, I mean, you got to figure

Anthony:

it out. If you got to get he didn't do it out of a particular way about him. Like could you you really don't get into that without their contributions like that that's the that's the genesis that's where it begins and for you to be like I'm cool that the gymnasts have known and you need them just like as much as they need to do and maybe just maybe it gets to a point where some kind of reconciliation not to like bring back Rockefeller but more like we're old. We've accomplished a lot like we don't need to do this like we will want to brothers main guy be bash each other in public or in private. Just figure this out. I hope it gets to that. We don't see but I don't know. But I hope

Jeff:

that he says shout out to Dame I know we don't see eye to eye but I can never erase your accomplishments. And I appreciate you and thank you for that and shout out to Kareem Biggs Burke. He's one of the most honorable people I've ever met. We created something that will probably never be duplicated as facts. And in LA, and I didn't even know that Jay is producing movies now, bro. You put me on to that Netflix movie with a ball. You heard of a pony? I don't even like westerns. But there's like a hood Western.

Anthony:

It was dope. It wouldn't have heard western man.

Jeff:

The way they talk and it's not like no Western should be talking on some motherfucker this and

Anthony:

here's the thing. When we talk, it's easy to find to be weird about weapons when we talk about weapons. None of us are really laughs and none of us really know how to use them. As a matter of fact, if they were going to talk in westerns, it would be more of like a blend between, like, you know, American English and in some type of, you know, Native American language or accent because it was basically based in that the Midwest, West and so on and so forth. And there were a lot of Indian tribes and that's where all the stories come from and a lot of your heroes and villains or however you want to place them like they were mixed with like, no Native American blood so they will have some kind of lingo a dialect like that, but none of them talk like that. They all sound like John Wayne or some other random white man. So I mean, I get what you're saying about the speaking and so on and so forth. But it's supposed to be a little bit more a postmodern way of looking at the West like I said, you don't see black people in the West and so they shouldn't be do

Jeff:

they paid homage to have like a street or whatever named after that love on the show the real quick form of black cowboy slate former slave owner, and I like that they had one of the train cards named after what's his name? Jared? Yeah, Chadwick Boseman. What was a car salesman said on it yeah. Quick and you know a lot of you probably didn't even catch that

Anthony:

right like yeah, like kind of watch it into what's going on with what it is trying to say here. Yeah, cuz his name was Chad with Aaron Bolton's with MCA both know the car like that was that was though I thought that was a good touch. Yeah, I'm gonna miss him. Like, they just they suspended production of Black Panther too, because the t shirt right? Girl, please the woman please, Cherie. She got hurt. And I'm like, yeah, they still gonna do Black Panther fuck, she's gonna be the new Black Panther Party. Probably eventually, if I was kind of shut it down. I mean, she got injured. Let it shut it down. But it's gonna be so weird. Like the next few things. Like you're gonna see movies. Like, I wish that we could have did that because you're just that good of an actor. But that's I mean, it's not the hit man isn't really good movie. It was solid. Again, always says always read some teach Chadwick Boseman. But um, if it's on Netflix, I think it's number one on Netflix right now. So the harder they fall go check it out. He ain't got shit to do. Go look at it. It's only two hours and some change. Do something to time.

Jeff:

Notorious bigs ready to die album was the oldest album on Billboard's Top 200 It was on there for 27 years. And it was up there like last week. I don't even know if it's still up there. Last time I checked I didn't see it on him. I gotta check again. But, you know, I was like, really should be on it that long. And you know, obviously God like Michael Jackson got albums on Eminem got albums on this, you know, Drake got albums on Tupac has an album and it was higher than the Greatest Hits Tupac rated this album was higher on that list.

Anthony:

The biggest because, you know, a lot of see we don't care. Like we're still suffering Dodon about the top 10 But like, you know, if it's a top 200 And I mean, you know, records in the world, not just us, but like the world. And that's just been on it for 27 years. And we only given a recognition when it's gone. That says more about our society. Anything else. We don't appreciate the shit that's there. For 27 years. It's been one of the best 200 albums in the country. But but two fucking decades, man. And now that is off like oh man, now it's all Oh, man. I appreciate it while it's here. Imagine imagine having that kind of pulling away even if people buy I'm blessed to still be on that list at the 27 fucking years. That's crazy. Shit. That's why I'm saying it like that. It is crazy. I wouldn't want to know what to do myself. Man. I want to still get residuals. His mother's yeah

Jeff:

related phrase was wireless is making money. She's chillin you haven't heard a peep from her. Puffy wasn't making sure her she you be seeing her on between puffy taking care of her and between that lawsuit against the LAPD that she won for millions of dollars she straight he never gonna hear from her again.

Anthony:

Or like like she didn't have that kind of protection should be I hear like porn YTB I

Jeff:

like puns white making DVDs making merchandise make you an interview. I'm not saying I'm

Anthony:

saying no, no no, it's the way you sell it cuz you made some kind of cornerhouse you got t shirts he

Jeff:

does that CD to be out there with the merchandise table where every event like the punch tribute down the block and you know the in the Bronx. You see her her son out there with the merchandise table like yo get your punch shirts for $10 or whatever the

Anthony:

whole thing is like you're selling puts on upon CDs like Does your car have a CD player?

Jeff:

No, my wife does my sister's card like they don't nobody listen to CDs no more. There's no CD player there's no place to buy a CD you gotta sell you got to sell the album like in a USB stick and hand it out

Anthony:

exactly.

Jeff:

The USB stick of new the new unreleased joins on the USB stick $25 for two songs it was good

Anthony:

put put the same USB port in your car did just press

Jeff:

somebody should come up with that that might be the new thing. So albums in the USB dish compatible with the cars

Anthony:

you push like this it right to the money fucking we got to get the money in whatever the fuck but yo don't sell CDs so so USB buckets, et cetera USB. We've had mat ours with a little bit put a little picture a little thing on it and they can plug it in there and attract missions come Ooh, okay. Relax. Go ahead and Next door will save the money. Will Smith. He's writing a memoir. And we do this was called, he talks about this.

Jeff:

He contemplated killing his father to avenge his mother raised one of the experts from the memoir. What was the other excerpt that they said he fell in love? Where was the lady's name of costar Stockard Channing. And I'm like, really what she had a son back then.

Anthony:

Now he trying to find whole thing about, you know, method acting and going a bit too far. Like, like, like, using he's in love with the character in the movie. And now he like became a loader in real life. So that kind of, you know, threw things off. He talked about how like, he was just when when does someone get emancipated, so young, the idea of killing his father, so on and so forth, things of that nature. But all in all, it's pretty good.

Jeff:

And he got the new movie coming out. He's the father of Serena Williams and Venus Williams. So he's gonna be all over King Richard. So he's all over the headlines now, you know, I'm saying, and it's apropos now that he's released a memoir, so you're gonna basically take over the rest of the year. Would you be surprised? Because I wouldn't. Would you be surprised if at the end of the book, like in the final chapter, he says he's gay, or he says he's bisexual? Would you be surprised? And you know where I'm going with?

Anthony:

This is that hey, would I be surprised? No. Would it be unexpected? Yeah, I just don't see it. But But it went right through right.

Jeff:

It wouldn't surprise me it wouldn't surprise me. If any of these guys you know, come out as bisexual or gay. And what I'm what I'm what I'm getting at is Joe button was recently in his podcast, and he alluded to being bisexual or you know, he said he likes men and women. And then people are saying no, his words were taken out of context. He was joking or whatever your thoughts on that?

Anthony:

Just fucking withdraw how you fix large or because we're in a climate where if you if you do anything that was like It's weird if you do anything revolves around anybody sexuality, and I didn't make a joke of it, or you try to make it a poignant point that you're trying to make about society and sexuality. Whenever you see something you're going to draw headlines, because the whole thing like I don't I have no idea if the baby is personally gay or not. No idea, right? Oh, not not not not homophobic. I guess he made those comments. Super wild and like what the fuck is he talking about? Right? What about Boo? Boo? Oh, no, no booze is absolutely 1,000% Little NAS X Islam and rent free netmask everything that little boy says everything a little boy says fucks boozy. Oh. And I'm like, you're an adult. Like you don't have like, Why are you out here arguing with the child like you got this like a beatbox? Like 20 plus years boozy? What are you doing? Like, no one cares. So I

Jeff:

think that a homosexual person has more money than

Anthony:

seven records and he dumps you like, it's poisoning the kid like no, the kids don't got to listen to it. Like like Montero is not a song for kids and never was even he said, I'm not trying to push you towards that audience. Like I said, oh my god is men in grinding in a video on him. And the devil again, got to do that either. Just turn the fucking channel that it's those kids and live in your house. Right? They they're looking at the phone that you gave them take the fucking phone away. If you feel that when they're watching, you're trying to change everything. That's what they're watching. Oh, sit down. Explain to them like this is not appropriate at this age. You know, you still let them cook so? Absolutely not. So is it? What is supposedly No, like, Joe is supposed to be a provocateur. He's supposed to say things. He wants to be Rogen. He wants to say and do certain things. And this is one of the things sort of I think Joe's bisexual No, but I think it's going to be something's going to carry on a conversation that a stretch them out about two or three podcasts, but you can get some humor or content out of it. That to get them through the end of the year. So I mean, I don't fault the guy. I don't fault him for taking this bullshit and flush and fool with it. But is Joe Budden bisexual. No, I'm so happy to be receiving quote unquote, see that? But with him? No, he just fucking my

Jeff:

job. I was speaking of podcasts. Kanye West was on drink champs this week. And it was like a two and a half hour interview. So I actually I was watching it in pieces. You know? I mean, it took me like two days to

Anthony:

you got to Yeah, you got somebody

Jeff:

that was arguing with somebody. I'm like, yo, the guy. Yeah, he might have some crazy in him, but he's also got some genius in them. But the show was hilarious. He was being mad cocky. He was talking shit about Big Sean and who was it? John Legend? He was like, Yo, you know, I know these cats and moms you know I'll put them on and you know I made the merch and all of this and then when I run for president they you know they shit on me or whatever he was like so that's like some disloyal last year. I don't fuck we needed them. And he kept saying that big sign and Big Sean was the worst show he ever did. And Nord was just laughing I was like, Yo, Kanye is trip and you know,

Anthony:

it the call just leave the copycat. And Sean responded,

Jeff:

you know? He says he tweeted, I can't wait to go and drink champs now. He said and then he put a I was just with this man. He say none of that. And this was after the interview. I'm dying laughing at you. That's a big. That's what Shawn put on Twitter. Because I think he's bipolar shit. Yeah, he was talking by his haircut, he was talking about his fucking haircut and then he tried to break it down. He tried to make that shit. He first was saying that the barber just fucked him up, right? And the barber was making even charging. And he said he went home and he just finished fucking himself up even more, but he tried to make the shift seemed like it had a deeper meaning. Like it represents a dove. It's the shape of a dub. You know, all the different patches of hair represent, you know, I'm saying my train of thought or whatever, like my thought process growing. I don't know what the fuck you say you try to make this sound scientific or poetic? I was like, yo, yo.

Anthony:

Yo seen smart people that seem so smart. He fucking dumb. I mean, and Kanye is a genius, but not genius. To the degree that we think he is, is like your musical. Yes, you are. What I think he's taking that a little bit too far to think that he's that he's gone above and beyond that. He's that because of his genius level intellect with regard to music and producing. That means you now have the ability to change the world. It's kind of ego maniacal more than anything else. Like I like I hate listening to that man talk. But because he gets his real, real vivid moments of clarity didn't get jumbled up in this other function. Like, he might have said me, he did say a few bright things in that interview. But the problem is, I can't personally remember them because it was covered up by all the little function. You know, what is it like thing example like before when trying to talk about life at a party with him and 3000? Like the song 3000 gives us a great first, alright, it's dope, like, okay, the album, you name your album, your mother, he's talking about and talk to your mother, yada, yada, yada. And then, like Kanye comes on, and he's talking about, you know, he's wearing a red hat talking about the beef between him drinking them. Like that was hilarious. Right? It seems so lost in context of what's actually going on. And, and I think like, it was actually, it's actually a bad outlet to go and drink champs to talk about it. Because we drink champs because they respect the coaches so much, they're never going to push them to get the answer to certain shit that you think that he would want to bring across like, the whole Trump thing, the whole Drake thing, everything that's going on in life, like even when camera like he's like, like, like, we're not divorced, I didn't sign papers for me, but they never like, they're not going to push him about the things that they should push them on. Like the whole idea of supporting Trump and his policies and everything else to that degree. They should push him on that they didn't do it because that's that's not what they do as a program as a show them. They're not really like, they're not fanboys and they're not really interviewers, they're more like, you know, him and DJ F and it's more like homies you kick away with just sitting there chopping it up. And I can ask a little bit about somebody about everything, like hopefully you just feel comfortable enough to reveal that to us. But what to do like him, you gotta have some with some structure because if not, you're going to end up with you know, two and a half hours of rambling like you did before but that's it was entertaining though. I know but then we started off right like, because Because Because because he got he's gay was now it was just Yes, Jay talked about that. He's like, like he's prints just yet he

Jeff:

legally changed name to just ye two letters. But my favorite shirt he said was he said when he heard the Drake song where Drake is like this ahem and talking, you know, alluding to the fact that he fucked Kim, you know, supposedly he didn't burn. You know, he, he threw jabs like that on Kanye. And Kanye said, Yo, I heard the song The first thing I did was I got Drake Kim Jay Z who was supposed to be on the song. He said Jay was supposed to be on the song but he backed out after he found out that Drake was disincarnate which I thought was dope was loyal of Jay Hill. I'm not gonna be on it. But Travis Scott was on it. So he said I put Drake, Travis Scott, my wife and Jay on on a mass text and the first thing he said was, you know, first of all, I'm worth more than all you and words combined. Super. Imagine in a group text and that's the first set. Somebody says more than Oh, you mark buck is like

Anthony:

looking at Brookie let's get this straight, telling me what to do. And I was saying you ain't got as much money as I do. Let me say you can on the flip money shit so

Jeff:

long. I know most people have a two and a half hour interview. So I'll just break it down to you. He also said that he'll do a vs against anybody except for Jay Z. And he called Jay Z the boss he was I asked my boss, I won't do anything but he said he'll smoke Drake. He said he'll smoke whoever. And he was like he was like yo for me to do it versus you got to put me against like four different people. rapper, singer producer. He was like I'd do it

Anthony:

all. He does. He does this Eric and I have but he only has 20 songs.

Jeff:

You know what he did a lot though. He named drop. He named dropped so much that they had to head out. They had a counter at the bottom of the screen and they got up to like in the 50s. He was like yeah, I was just talking to Laura here on the phone. Yeah. The other day. I was at a meeting with Hillary Clinton. Yeah, he just kept name dropping people. And it was just keeping score of how many times he named dropped. It was hilarious. Like, why? Why he's like, Yeah, you know, me and Jeff basil had breakfast the other day and we was talking about this and that. Yeah, man, you know, whatever designer from France when he was talking Elon Musk like me, he was calling everybody by first names he was like, you know me and Elon was sitting down and nor he was lightweight. You know on musk. He talked about Elon Musk. Yeah. I mean, it was cool.

Anthony:

Whatever. Wow. Yeah, he does it all the time. Like, Yo, man, yo, yo, if you love Elon Musk that much, man just say so every enemy goes like name dropping like, like your homies like that. Like yo, he's Richard than you are. That's the only reason you admire him. If he wasn't as rich as you are, you won't give a fuck about him. Stop that. That's it irritates me. He does all the time when Elon Musk but this is man's

Jeff:

man's and so you know, that's my man's fucking with me. What was that song he was gonna play for me.

Anthony:

I played it in MIPCOM. Whoa, let's

Jeff:

Jeff:

They represent a culture to represent the culture podcast. Alright, yo, so I want to start off with some vaccine news or anti Vax people whose let's start off with Aaron Rodgers. Because now you know, he was uh, he was walking around he was vaccinated turns out he's not vaccinate even though he was telling people he was

Anthony:

he's no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Okay. That meant that man said he was inoculated Hmm. Someone should ask the follow up question like inoculated with what? Right? That's the man said, the man said, I am inoculated and they let it go. He never said he wasn't vaccinated. He said, I am inoculated. Very cute Lord speak. That's what the man said.

Jeff:

And now the NFL was looking into him for not wearing a mask at a press conferences and going to teammates Halloween party.

Anthony:

But his John Wick costume was fine. It was it can you know having grown up in long hair, right? He did. So at Halloween, so you could dress like John Wick. Ah, yeah, like the scars and all the stuff. He had a dog in the black suit, like on his fire, even though you gave everybody here in COVID is cool.

Jeff:

And executives from the NFL from our questioning uneven COVID-19 protocol standards for Aaron Rodgers. And the Packers. Like the team is scared of him. And he's supposed to be the goal, whatever. So he was he wasn't even going through the same type of protocol that the rest of the team was doing. It was like, whatever. He was doing whatever he wanted. And turns out he got COVID right because you got COVID Now and then he's on the COVID i o list or they can even play this week. He just powder. Yeah, so they're like wait a minute, you told us okay, he'd been walking around we're nomads you've been doing okay, whatever cool. I mean, I guess it doesn't even matter because you could have still got even if he was vaccinated, but I guess yeah

Anthony:

principle of the whole thing the whole thing is that you in vaccinated the whole time and I don't give a fuck if you shot yourself or alcohol or whatever the fuck he was doing. I don't care olive oil. I know he doing some shit that Joe Rogan told me. It's the ivermectin like like basically like a magnet er, but like the the white people's foolish drugs like the shit to tell you not to take what you're gonna take anyway, because you're white and you don't believe anything that anybody says. So like, I have a Mexican hydrochloric, when and some other folks shit. Someone's like that. And I'm like, Alright, man. And really what's going to come down to that, you know, you're not gonna see Aaron Rodgers probably back for another few weeks. It wouldn't surprise me if they suspend him. It's really impossible for me to think that they're going to let this slide. And if you're a Dallas Cowboys fan, you're going to be first in line to say like, we need to suspend this guy. He's out here fucking this up. This is unfair, or what else is vaccinated, but he's not and yada, yada, yada. That's crazy. And the whole fucked up part about Android is that he let that shit slide for so long. And they try to act like Nothing was going on. And in. The weird thing is that they're in a position where they can't really hurt the team, they can only hurt him. Because unlike most other teams, they're not owned by like an owner. They're owned by like Green Bay, Wisconsin, like the people in the town. They're the shareholders. There's a president who runs the operation, but there's no owner, owner owner. So they can maybe take away draft picks, but they don't have like, oh, we can find like the team owner $10 million, they can't do that shit don't really think they can do is hurt Aaron. So the best thing to do about that price spend them, I would say probably four games, which is at least that they can do. Maybe some lose some draft picks, but the whole thing was just fucked up. Like you putting other people's lives at danger. Like, I get whatever your reasoning is. But you shouldn't say something like that. Then every time we see you don't have a mask on or anything else like that. And life is going to grant for you. You're doing great here. Possibly MVP candidate. And you really don't give a shit about your teammates or the people around you because you couldn't follow the basic protocols or putting the mask on because if the moment you did so Walk Run at people to figure out like, Oh, you're not vaccinated. We wouldn't care as long as you keep another people safe. So Aaron, STOP THE FUCK ship, man. Just just take the shot. If you're going to take a shot, just follow the other protocols. It's not hard stop being white

Jeff:

thing on the anti vaccine topic. IceCube walked away from $9 million movie project due to its vaccine mandate. The name of the movie was working on was called Oh, hell no. And apparently that's what he said the vaccine. He was like, Oh, hell no. And yeah, well, not million dollars. A lot of money, man. I mean, it's not the rock money is not Will Smith 20 million a movie money. But 9 million is a lot of money. Especially for a guy who's really not even known for being active. You know, he's more of an actor now than a rapper. But shit. I mean, you got to feel real strongly about not getting vaccinated to walk away from $9 million.

Anthony:

You do I mean, carry walking away from 34?

Jeff:

I mean, they got it like that, I guess.

Anthony:

I mean, they like you can have the go, like I can walk away from $100. If I have $1,000, like a walker $1,000 will have 10,000. Like, I find out more than what I was going to cover them what I'm going to lose, I'll be fine. Right? Cheap has this project. I mean, I guess maybe this main thing right now is the big three basketball tournament, which is kind of where the whole COVID thing, but I don't think he's hurting for money. I never seen him as like a extraneously, bindi kind of guy. So that's not really a worry. I think it's like, I think people put the number upon it. And they're like, Man, that's a lot of money. But I don't really think about the money, I think about the principle of it. But the men feel that you know, this is unfair, and it's not right, it's you kind of go forward and not do so then I respect him for that. I don't have much respect for people who try to make themselves to be like martyrs of society are claiming to speak for a bigger, good or so and so forth. That that irks me that it's not the purpose, like it should be individualized if you feel that you're being wronged by these these mandates, so and so forth. Like the mayor of New York City, he literally just got elected, like those vaccine mandates and that we now live in that fuckery. Well, he didn't say fuckery. But he basically like this, because it came in off with me also, I'm going to change this, Oh, somebody's going to lift these mandates and make life a little bit easier for people, they're not going to do that. And I don't think they should, I think the rules are the rules. But I think there should be some kind of give some leeway, where if you're trying to get as many people back in as you can get, but show some humanity in regards to it. And let them you know, for the meanwhile until it gets to that point to like get to a point of comfort, hopefully more sooner than later. So you have to force their hand that, you know, you're still subject to the weekly tests and keep your mask on and things of that nature, you know, thing that was supposed to stop this, this pandemic in the first place that allowed him to continue to keep doing that. But for Cuba to take the stance, I don't have a problem with it. I understand it completely. If you don't feel right with it, and you saying that, you know, this goes against the things that for me, I'm not going to roll with it. And I'm not taking a moral stance on it. I'm just saying that I disagree with the policy, therefore I won't do it, then yeah, it's almost like you know, if you take a job and your hair cut has to be a particular length, your skirt has to be at a particular length. You can only drive this color car or use this type of pen. Now it seems kind of stupid that people will say things like that. But it's a real possibility that could happen in any kind of work situation. But when that kind of comes about, you still have the choice to like, No, I don't want to do this. And I think I respect you for just saying that I'm standing on this ground saying that I disagree with these mandates, and therefore, I'm not going to do this and someone's like, Well, fuck it. You're not me in Dallas. I'm not doing this off the principal. It's not a principal thing. He disagrees with something. He's not doing it and they're not paying him $9 million. It's kind of a straightforward kind of transactional process, which makes life easier for cube. It makes it it's not like he's not going to do the job and going to go broke. He's fine. I turn it on. I mean, Dallas shit, I got my shots. I got my jazz I'm sorry, a cube. If you don't want that check, I'll happily do the shit for you. I don't know what the movie is about, but just sign my ass up if you want to cut me a check for $9 million. But the man did what he had to do, you know move on It'll be another vaccination story somewhere. And other mandates story eventually until we kind of get to an even grinding understanding where we can kind of deal with this shit. I don't know how it went but we will.

Jeff:

I let me get into some racist shit, isn't it life? Apparently the league NBA and the Phoenix Suns a reporter you know they're investigating the owner of the sons Robert Sarver. Obviously the white man, who supposedly said the N word or multiple occasions made lewd misogynistic comments and meetings, berated coaches presided over a toxic work environment in which employees have been discouraged from going to the human resources office. According to a wide ranging story by ESPN Baxter Holmes that was published a few days ago. The story quotes his son's co owner saying the level of misogyny and racism is beyond the pale it's embarrassing as an owner a former team executive edit there's literally nothing you could tell me about him from a misogynistic or race standpoint that would surprise me I mean, does this surprise you now of any story comes out saying any of these owners all he said the N word he does actively say the N word

Anthony:

of wealthy white men treating people like property no one would give you that idea so what they do

Jeff:

I need I need conversations to league I need emails to League and I need some phone conversation to League Soccer hear him say to ship to you know I'm saying so we can really put a face to the shit at saying words and sentences to

Anthony:

it honestly doesn't matter because even he did it did not say that. This is kind of the reaction of where these people are.

Jeff:

Of course, he came on and said that he's never said anything negative towards black leaders, or whatever

Anthony:

it is with the fuction we really just went to the same thing with Jon Gruden. We literally just went to St. John we're like I don't have a racist bone in my body right emotes are rolling out you like John

Jeff:

I don't know what bones you don't got racism but you got some

Anthony:

bones you got but um, shits is filled with nigger, trust me, it is deep, it is dark. And if it's rough. So the ship, like I said, we just kind of went through this when you put people in positions of power who happen to be white, they can't help but look at everyone else as they're like They're lower than them. They denigrate them, they see them. subhuman is one course a way of looking at it. But they always look at them as lesser than. So you can't look at something less than and not say something about it being less than just like your general person will say something and they will look at something and go like, Oh, that looks cheap. Their price kind of reflects that to you kind of get it like it's like going into $1 store, you're going to say something when you're looking at the environment around you that you're going to get whatever you're going to pay for. These guys have billions of dollars, they have a lot of money and they feel that they not only don't need to speak with you or need to understand your thoughts, feelings, ideas or actions. They own you, they control you because they're richer than us makes them more powerful than you. So it's surprising. No, and the reason why I believe that this is true. And I know robbers want to fight as hard as you can. They interviewed 70 Phoenix, former and current employees like and they're all their swords are pretty consistent. You know, you know, man, the problem itself is with you. And it is and I don't think you change this shit at all. That's who he is. Now, are they going to be getting my paint? Probably not. It's gonna be pretty fucked up. Yeah. Do I know what they're gonna do with him? That's like a really bright man even brushing under the rug and kind of move forward but his what he was saying was racist. Yeah, like, like it was that it was like some weird shit about his wife. Like, he was like, he was showing his wife in a bikini and then talking about like, the great head. She gave us something else like that. Like it came from conversation. But then like, say he tried to lower it up like No, no, the reason I shown a picture of my wife in the bikini is because we made a deal with a manufacturer. And the manufacturer gave her a bikini and she took a picture of the bikini that doesn't look great to me. That shattered the shoulder everybody else. The fuck is wrong with these people that they know my goddamn business? Like, then you want to show their boss get a model like your wife's not a model is she like you look great on her. But if you're gonna be selling shit in the team store, you might want to have like, you know, professional up there doing I'm trying to turn away focusing on this man just in that locker to kick it seriously, man, if you just don't like people to call just go ahead and say they're not gonna take the team with me. You didn't catch when I think I'll make them so we don't. Yeah, like that's Killzone know what? But the thing is they caught him on tape. That's why that's different to you. Right when they have video footage of somebody or they got a tape. Yeah, because it leaks usually look the other way like the NFL looked the other way when women are saying this dude is beating me up but when the tape comes out of rewrites punching you in the face, then the league is like oh yeah, we can't we can't we can't we can't help you out buddy. Get a chance to respond that girl.

Jeff:

If it was if it wasn't for that elevator tape he would have been still playing in the league probably right because it'd been data tape came out he hit it with that one piece not the right Allen so Mike Tyson shit.

Anthony:

I don't think it was the punch. I think it was a being drunk and Dragon are so delicate it just made it like more caveman. Like he cracks me up he like chicken like yo are you I get up you're like like it definitely takes her and then drag her raise her dead carcass out. Right but because it was the violence of the act itself. Come Remember Kareem hunt got suspended for a little while when it was some fight occurred. He like he kicked homegrown I asked when she was on the ground, right? But it was like you kind of fucked up and said, I kind of just finally give me like a little boot. He didn't like give it a full fuel go kick. And right now you're back. So you plan for the Cleveland Browns.

Jeff:

And then like a month later, she marries him anyway. So you know, I mean,

Anthony:

I haven't heard anything from Ray Ray's I think I know, I guess I guess he's doing solid their marriage is solid. I mean, and I will just incident I mean, it's fun. Like, you know, in

Jeff:

his defense, not really in his defense, but just saying she was hitting him first. So you know, two drunk people. He's being assaulted by said person and he was like, Yo, his reflex was to just swing

Anthony:

Yeah, but like, but not the whole thing. It's the when he dropped the hammer on her. It was like, it was sudden it was like he hit her like, once he hit it she would like you know, like me drive the car put the pitcher neutral like don't go forward it don't go backwards like it stops. He had her she went immediately neutral. She went right to the ground. He just kind of looked at it was like look left look right before the door opens up. It's kind of grabs just drags out the door like

Jeff:

Alright, come on down like Jacob plan or whatever his name was that got knocked out by Taylor plant Kayla plan who got knocked out by canillo. Over the weekend, um, they know the topic of race, the black diversity specialists who was fired by the Texas hospital for being quote unquote too sensitive above race issues. Check it out. So the Houston Texas hospital fired its newly hired Vice President Chief Equity Diversity and inclusion officer four days before his first day on the job for being too sensitive about issues of race. According to documents obtained by NBC News, Joseph B. Hill, who was Black was sent a two sentence email to them only two sentences. They ain't even your friend ever has that they just gave him two sentences, revoking his offer for the open position and Memorial Hermann health system in July despite sailing through over a dozen interviews in a six week span. They said we regret to inform you that we are rescinding the offer of employment dated July 21 2021. Read the email obtained Baba Memorial Hermann, we appreciate your interest in the position and we wish you much success going forward. He says it was a shock to say the least. I was floored. It wasn't. Two weeks later by his lawyer that Memorial Hermann reverses decision the hospital concluded he was not a good fit for the company, in part because he was too sensitive about race issues. What does that even mean? The reasons that were listed were just as shocking as rescinding the offer. Hill told NBC News adding that the claims were false and nonsensical. They didn't even contact me to discuss their so called issues. Is that racist?

Anthony:

I want to get back to go fins. Again. That's into what was great. Those sentences. That's a great one. So that was it again, today. He got

Jeff:

you way more forward in two sentences, homie.

Anthony:

So basically the thing that they said when it simplified into regular terms, they said mimic that job offer now we good. That was it. Now we're good. We're good. It's a company full of white people. You're the only black person in here. And you've been through some shit. Calls No shit, he didn't get a chance to start the job.

Jeff:

So what? What did what did he hear? What did they say? Or do in there that might mean causing a

Anthony:

certain way? It was one black dude around a whole bunch of white people that got super uncomfortable. He must have

Jeff:

said something don't don't interview like, why am I the only black person in here and he was like, I gotta let this guy go. We can't have this conversation.

Anthony:

How can we just say good PR for? Me? Like, it's not it's not good, good PR too far the only black person without actually hiring the one black boy, you know, he's gonna sit down, right? Lawyer up. I mean, he could try to but that's not discrimination. I mean, they were because they rescinded the job offer they didn't know he

Jeff:

got to do is have his lawyer go in there and find out how many black people they have employed and be like, Yo, they fired me because I was black.

Anthony:

But here's the thing, if you say that you can do that almost in any job in America. You can, because there's that we're not there. I can see if the

Jeff:

guy at that hospital, they probably got one nurse in there.

Anthony:

Okay, so here's the thing, the tricky thing that they do about the diversity thing is that when they do those polls, and so on and so forth, they take the idea of all employees, not just doing what they should everybody has

Jeff:

to meet a certain quarter, right? I think that's where you have to have a certain amount of, you know, minority employees now,

Anthony:

but let your but let's say that's true, right? You can if we're going to take with you satisfaction, so you need to have X amount of minority employees. Okay, that doesn't say that. No, those employees have to be in positions of power. No, like, if there's, if there's 10,000 employees in the company, and you need 300 them to be minorities. They could be the cleaning crew, they could shit they don't work in a cafeteria, right? If you have the kind of thing they put all those numbers together. So it's not necessarily the numbers of the of the people themselves. It's really the numbers of those that are in high ranking positions. Not even speaking of salary, just like by title alone. That's when the numbers start getting small, right? It's severely dwindled, like you don't see people of color, you don't see women, you don't see people in the LGBTQ community, it evaporates. The height, the height is almost like, you know, flying, the higher and higher you go up, the wider and wider those clouds get, once you're up there, that rarefied air, you're not going to see many people that look like you or me or my mother or your sister, or my brother or your they don't, they don't exist there. But they say that we're diverse, we hire so many different people, yeah, but you're hired to do menial fucking tasks, you don't hire them, position where they can actually grow into a management role and actually, you know, develop throughout the company, they do what works best for them. I'm saying that the issue of diversity is that we just got to have these things in these situations in position to do what we need to do. The fact that this gentleman didn't even get a chance to push forward and see, you know, where the flaws and fractures were in that society to figure out how to be more inclusive or diverse or deal with race, when he just kind of pulled the idea off. And it's such a weird statement to say that, you know, he's sensitive about race like, Hmm, I mean, I don't understand how he'll be too sensitive to when it's people of color, when it affects them way more than affects white people. I don't know why I think

Jeff:

that sense. I think that statement alone is racist. Oh, you're too sensitive towards race issues. Like what does that mean? Do we got white people walking around the office saying the N word or saying shit? And I'm supposed to take you know, be cool with that, like, Oh, you're too sensitive. We can't even joke around you know, you can't? Like what

Anthony:

does that even mean? That office? That office might have been? Wow, good morning.

Jeff:

I'm sick. He went to like six different interviews, bro. You probably saw some shit. That was. He was like, Yo, you probably said some. Somebody heard. He's gonna cause problems for us. We got to let them go.

Anthony:

And they can't act like they didn't want to like you. Do you think them do a very long interview process and kept moving forward? I'm confused. They're like their future

Jeff:

endeavors. Like, look, look ahead, brother, man. We make racist jokes occasionally around the office. If you ain't okay with that. We're gonna have to let you go buddy. Yeah,

Anthony:

like this is no wonder. This your policy says

Jeff:

it's a handbook. They give you the hand but they gave them now 300 Page handbook. And one of the pages says you got to be okay with insensitive remarks and jokes from from time to time. You might hit N word. It's all good.

Anthony:

Like around here, you're going to hit nigga from time to time okay. Just fucking deal with it. You know,

Jeff:

you might hear one of our 10 year old executive saying you know something about nappy headed hos you know saying you it's a joke though. You have to be okay

Anthony:

you know just laugh with us. Like we're not laughing with we're not laughing at you we're just laughing with you but you know motherfucker just don't feel funny. Def Comedy Jam and get the fuck out of my face. Like come on man. Isn't that funny? No,

Jeff:

they will I will get back to you then yo because we don't have to have a meeting they came out that meeting like Yo let's just let's give him two senses and that's we got to send them that email with just the pre recorded two sentences that we always use you

Anthony:

remember that job offer now we good we good homie

Jeff:

after the second half the further without the further consideration we're gonna have to further consideration we've decided that joint the right candidate for the job even though you've been you've been training with us and we've had to go through like six different interview you to get an evaluation we were fucking

Anthony:

six months into the fuck out of you like no this thing but it was all interviews had just look this is the process you got to trust the process ain't gonna work. You got to trust the process like the fucking sixes this ain't gonna work it didn't work out for me now been mad at him process been like fuck your process give me the fuck out of here. Trust me process my process me to fuck up on it. That's the big

Jeff:

thing you but what about all those dudes that was throwing the Edwards around at the interviews? That was part of the problem with just testing your fortitude, you know seeing how strong you are mentally

Anthony:

something that is something we do around you to test character to call Miguel Miguel Nicola Pakatan. Yeah, trying to see your your mettle your grip suits.

Jeff:

It's called Lucky white man. We have a system in place called negros with fortitude. negros would character

Anthony:

NFL the Negro fortitude League. Just keep on trying brother Don't worry about it. Cogan is the spokes are Lindsey Hogan is the spoke good but yes the fucking

Jeff:

vitamins and say you Edwards brother.

Anthony:

Yeah Even rolls off the tongue. You bitch.

Jeff:

Yo I can hold the word is that even foreign to them when you hear them say they shouldn't They were like well versed, like, you know, they've said this shit says

Anthony:

Oh, trying to find out about why people like some people you can say like, they probably heard it in a song somewhere. And some people you know, they're very fluent and saying nigga, like

Jeff:

the hardcore Yeah, the ER at the end like, Oh, yeah. You said like, it's just like, you know, I mean, you hear him say it in the cater. You hear the cadence and you're like, oh, wait a minute. He said that before he'd be saying,

Anthony:

oh, yeah, it's not.

Jeff:

That's part of his vocabulary.

Anthony:

That's it. That's every day. That's his Wednesday morning drive to work. What these niggas want from the van in a new man

Jeff:

and van, no.

Anthony:

Word for word. But yeah, okay. Um, all right. This is a sidebar because like me, we went out to the place yesterday and what song was it? i Oh, my God. Okay. I forgot to take some status now. So you know, you had to finger food stuff like that before left out. And they had a little jukebox there, right. And they kept playing bullshit music. So I was I was adding some songs in here she will by Lewin and Drake came on in song got picked early to play and behind me could you know what jukebox is? A little table? It was it was a it was two guys and two girls and they do that song word for word. Mm hmm they did they did they said in part but if they knew they knew she will work for like see this the shit that brings us together? That's the beauty of life. Wait what?

Jeff:

They was playing juicy. And I saw a bunch of shit. I was looking at it carefully to see if we No no no you're no no. I'm looking at you're like what you're saying there

Anthony:

is some of them stopped at a certain part but they didn't really go all the way through. They knew like okay I'm not I'm I'm not in the right presence and companies are saying shit like that. If I follow that other bar, you know people I wonder if it's like, if it's like, if you go to select some random ass Honky Tonk bar with like, people that code just do not go into like a just white people. Like, would they play juicing? Would they all say the N word like in unison? First of all,

Jeff:

nobody's gonna play juicy. Unless one of us walks in and we play it and they're gonna look at us. I don't know you use it's kind of universal. Like, I know a lot of people that don't really fuck with us. Like, there's only white people in there. They might say the show, you might see a few of them say shit. And then they'll look around because it's like, you know, when they look around, just to make sure the coast is clear. Like, is it safe to say

Anthony:

anything? They look to the left? To the right, like,

Jeff:

I would get clear. It's like the boss across the street looked at a level is to the right. All right, and we're gonna say that they

Anthony:

want to get hit by that racism car.

Jeff:

Both ways. That's, you know, hit you boy, like a Mack truck.

Anthony:

He's like Robert Sarver.

Jeff:

But before we go, let me just tell you my experience at the spa and my wife took me to for my birthday she took me to the spa though. And I'm not gonna say the name because I you know, they're not paying me. And it's the first time you know, I'm saying you know, we get you go to the locker they have a men's locker room overhead and at the women's locker room to the left. You go in there you change they want you to shower, they got showers, they got pools and so you know, whatever pools and they got a sauna and if there's only men and then you have one separate section for the women and then you know my wife pay for a massage so eventually we would meet up at the massage spa, we got massages, you could go to different signs together walk around the ship, but if you're going to the locker room is just men and then another one is just women you know I'm saying so I go up in there see a sign take a shoes, like who I take my shoes off to obviously I'm dressed they gave you a little uniform to wear when you're walking around the massage areas and the signs and shit. But you got to go to the locker room. You know, change your clothes, take a shower, if you want going to pull if you want to whatever, and walk around barefoot and I took my shoes off and all I see is naked dudes walking around. This was culture shock is the first time I've been I'm saying I used to I gotta get used to it. I gotta get acclimated to the situation. I see all types of dudes just walking around Asians, blacks, white Latinos, balls out just swaying walking around like yo, these dudes look real comfortable here. real comfortable. They see me uncomfortable was my first time there. So they try to talk to you you know, I'm saying oh, hey, how you do I've never seen you around. Hey, Are you new here? Oh, yeah, I'm doing my first time my wife brought me over. Okay, and they just haven't gotten full grown men. But as a naked dick is all now hanging and they trying to have a conversation I didn't feel comfortable. Again. It's my first time I had to get you in I'm saying do the staring at me in my face trying to have a conversation with a stranger but naked. And at first I was like damn, I gotta change here so I changed to give you a locker and a key I changed I was so fat dudes are so skinny dude. I saw heavy dues I saw not heavy too. It was a diverse and Mo fucker diversity was flowing along with the love. I was like I so whatever. Eventually I just took my clothes off. I showered really Quick, and then they gave me this little towel that was literally no more than a foot long, right like this. And I actually wanted to do something here. What am I supposed to do with this shoe? He was like, oh, that's just for you to dry off, bro. You could just take as many as you want and just to dry off. You're not really used to you're not supposed to cover yourself. When no matter what my wife they gave her like a roll. They gave her a big I would wrap around I'm like, sure like where's your towel? I'm like I get that it gave me this little towel that was like half a foot long. And that was just to dry off real quick. I was like um, they just want me to walk around naked out this bitch. And then I'll tell you this and I was trying not to look okay, but it's hard to look when it all naked dudes are walking on one do try to talk to me about my tattoos again but naked do and this ain't a race thing but for some reason all the dues I was trying to talk to me was all black dues. Right? Okay. And I noticed and it might be you know what they say about black my fuckers might be true because I noticed that all right all right. All the other dudes have regular dicks and again I wasn't trying to look but it was kind of unavoidable but when these black dudes was talking to me and it was like three of them different occasions was talking to me one was talking to me about my your like your tattoo. Another dude was talking to me about if I'm new and you know, showing me the ropes like yeah, you go ahead and take a shower. You go to this way to go to the massage.
