Well, yeah, they got a week to reach out and claim their prize and and give me their address or wherever they want me to send it to you know, I mean, they're close enough to complete the shit up. I don't know. Yo, and you know, I work a government job. He works a financial job. We're not criminals. Just give us your address. We can mail it off to you. Scan fax. We are who we are shaky out here. We like to get to my address show up at your house with with a Glock like, Oh yeah, here's your product and open up a peel box and just to the peel box, like a peel box. Like grow up. So yeah, um, we got some shit to get into. First of all, you have a debt to pay off, sir. Is that correct? I paid it already. All right, but we have to discuss it on air though. We could talk about something that I paid my debt. So Tom tibideaux, first year coach of the New York Knicks of my New York Knicks was named the coach of the year much to my boy Anthony's dismay, dismay, I lost you lost and I paid I told you and I told you this months ago you can you can vouch for me. I told you a month ago months ago, this man is winning. And we spoke about it a couple episodes ago. Or the last episode might have been a week we this man is winning the coach of the year. Guess what he did with this team? Who will nobody thought was gonna win more than 20 games? Got him to over 40 wins into the playoffs was nothing short of remarkable. tibideaux wins. Somebody actually hit me up on Twitter. There was like, yo, that Anthony he pay you the bet, man. I was like, yeah, we're gonna discuss that on the next episode. Oh, come on, man. Come on. Yo, stop. Man. We got some listeners that'd be that'd be keeping up with the shit. I understand. But Yo, I make a bet I pay. What do you think of going just ask better like nine paying nothing like you paid me when you last? I paid you when I'm on Phaedra right on air. Exactly. And in a moment you sent me that text I sent you the money wouldn't look at the minute that most flashed on my phone from like, what was ESPN Bleacher Report? It was like yo tuberosus coaching. I texted you immediately. And I paid you said hey, you have my money. And I knew the words I paid you immediately. No hesitation even say exactly. I just said have my money. I was like, Huh. And what no more no more than 60 seconds later, I get the notification from Zell. Yep. Anthony Austin has sent you your $20 so I appreciate that. You know, yeah, you don't fuck around. No hesitation. Like, if you lose a bet you lose your bet. I lost the Kevin Durant. Bet. You lost a typical bet. We broke even we got like I gave you I gave you 20 you gave me one correct. But if I recall, we have two more bets running right now. These might take a little longer. Well, no, actually we had the Lakers bear. That's a wash because they're eliminated. Right? I said the Lakers was gonna win. Get it? This watch. You said the nets were gonna win. Right? You know, but I'm still in it. But it's not guaranteed yet right now we also betted that Carmelo Anthony would be a first ballot Hall of Famer so we might have to wait a few years for that podcast like seven years from now still running like yeah, I'm gonna bring it up as soon as it happens. He has named to the basketball associations all the time. He will remember that mela bellick fan I'm on vacation. You get the money when I see you. By the time everyone be paid in crypto anyway, so give me that Bitcoin. Yeah, I forgot some country just just made crypto Bitcoin. Yeah, I literally just read of a legal tender What was it like some It was like some Latino country or some shit like a foreigner for the Flim Flam their whole their whole economy going collapse? Yeah. All it all it takes is a tweet from fuck it was

Anthony:

from Elon musk and they homeless. One short tweet from Elon Musk, and people are gonna be mortgaging their houses your mortgage, they're gonna be homeless. Like how much this house costs $52 50 to 1000 Bitcoins. Yeah, he's got that man that's gonna be interesting. That's an interesting experiment and we'll see how that goes. So yeah, we're gonna hear about the assumption in the news. Oh word Monkeys jumping off a bridge as a shake when they look when they woke up in the morning to open up the phone and saw that Bitcoin went down to like five cents

Jeff DeLaRosa:

on a cell phone in that gigantic pool. Yo, take the shit in your Did you hear that? is off topic. Did you hear about ti cola cola now? Iggy, Iggy Azalea, whatever, you break that down for me. He basically came out and said that, that he was and I quote, he is was the tarnish of my legacy. You know, I'm saying and obviously they had a loan and now she's no longer on his label. Yeah, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. The tarnish of his legacy is that when someone's trying to get him and his wife to go to prison for some sexual assault? This is the time to have legacy. Iggy Azalea. Yeah, because you know he probably thought this was gonna be like the white the female version of m&m the white the female mmm right. Yeah, so he figured like yeah, Dre got I am you know Timberland God got what you what you'd call it Bubba sparks I'm just gonna I'm gonna get me a white shorty nobody got a white girl you know the problem with those other two guys can actually rap Yeah, they can actually rap he was like well I'm gonna make her get a you know button plans and lip injections and we'll make it look black enough. Yeah, I mean a bug that part is like people who especially with female rappers is all it comes down to like a parent. But the ones that you would quote unquote when considered classically attractive be some of the best rappers out there. Like I said, like I said Jean Grey Oh, was a hunger that he was really really on for a minute said rock solid rock so on so forth. She's not attractive then I mean like I said it's it's a beauty is a particular thing. Right? Like people are going to find Kim attractive but not you know Nikki, but they might find Oh, Kim attractive. Not this new Kim. Right. All right. No baby dolled up. So when you have a situation like that, you can pretty up the package. But if it's still shit inside, it doesn't make a difference. Since a terrible package. And the thing is that she could rap rap. He wouldn't be saying that, but she can't rap rap. Yeah, so she said that he said that about her and then she came out and said, ain't nobody thinking about his blah, blah, blah, Takashi. You know, I think she's, uh, he owes me money. I don't know, whatever. Moving on, because I nobody really thinking about Iggy Azalea. Is there ever a rapper that got a problem with a rapper that don't involve money somehow? Well, I mean, you figure that's usually what the falling out is about, right? Like, yo, you owe me this amount. You played? I mean? I mean, it makes sense because that's like, generally people fall out over either some kind of man or woman or money. You owe me royalties. Everybody whereby royalties so that's a good argument. You owe me rule I don't got my masters. I owe you royalties. I'm part of this right in profit and profit Canada. Yo, don't don't don't get me wrong. I'm all Whoo hoo hoo. Are you Monrovia? Don't get me wrong. Are you going? I'll show you the books. All the books over the books but nothing may not want me to because you're going to find out you're going to end up on me. Probably so Yeah, exactly. Don't worry about that. Yeah, I got a fun fact. Another fun fact. I told you last week that nas rofa Will Smith well, fun fact. Jay Z wrote for Bugs Bunny. You remember that? Bugs Bunny rap from Space Jam. Yes. And I'll have to go back and listen to the lyric if you listen to the lyrics and make sense the shit he was saying sounds like Jay

Anthony:

they look a lot different. But when you look like Jay you know I'm just saying that because I hate when people like Joe Campbell cuz he really does. I hate that he really does. This is such a weird thing he looks exactly like him but it's like it's a weird thing to bring up like like a cartoon character but he's I hate writing for bugs money look man in the 90s was weird Have you go get your check the hey go get your checks Hara we're gonna get into a bear with me as the best arrow of all time and everything. Sports music, movies, television. 90 was the best shit. Some arguments there. But we'll go Yeah, unlike this soft ass weak ass generation that we have now. For example. We touched on it briefly. Right. But then we actually saw the highlights because I wasn't paying for the show. I don't think he was either. We waited for the highlights of the Floyd and Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul fiasco. That's what I'm calling it was highway robbery. Floyd Mayweather himself said that it was legal bank robbery, one line. And it's sad that they actually sold 1 million paper views. So it probably wasn't as much as Showtime expected, but it was on a Sunday. It was a show of a fight. But it still it was a million buys at $50 a piece. That's $50 million. They made of this shit show. And that's just only on pay per view buys. Yeah, and that not from the streaming thing, the streaming thing because a lot because eight Showtime had to give money back to people because you know there was glitches and shit. And we're not even talking about the house the venue. You know I don't know how many people who are allowed in it but it was in Florida because Miami you know Florida was one of the only places that would allow where they wanted to do it in Vegas. Mayweather even said on the press conference Afterwards, he said I really wanted Vegas because that's where I do all my fights. But they denied me the Vegas the Nevada commission was like, nope, you can bring an issue show here. Yeah, because, I mean, because I think I think Pacquiao did 4.4 million I think McGregor did 4.1 million, right. But those were real fights, right? Not this bullshit. So they they want to Nevada Nevada said no, then they wanted New York or LA or Dallas, you know, obviously they want big markets. Those states aren't fully opened yet you know what I'm saying? So there was like now we're not trying to have this bullshit here. So what's next right Florida, Florida there they'll host anything they've been hosting anything since the pandemic they've been hosting all types of events so they're the go to right now the other goal is to stay for any any sport event car shows sporting event every prime every guy to Florida despite open house Yeah, come on in

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Don't worry about no mask. Oh COVID is too hot like it man. Cool. So they went to Miami they allowed them to have whatever capacity they had. And you know, Mayweather I think got like 30 million I don't know how much but logan paul got a few million he's not getting 30 No, no, no, Logan got 20 so Floyd, meet Yo, ya know, from whatever Logan got 20 so so Floyd probably made 45 to 50 episodes Showtime a pocket in that much then because I was under the impression that Mayweather was making 30 Logan Paul was only gonna make a couple cuz I think Showtime was under the assumption that it will make a whole lot of money but I mean, they're gonna pocket something they're gonna pocket against the venue. Right? The minute they're supposed to find his brother next. I'm like, I have no interest in watching that either. Yeah, I'm done. I'm done. He needs to stop bro. Like, like like, all right, he's a welterweight. He was in there with a basically a heavyweight the guy was weighing in close to 200 pounds brolic was like you know, a whole foot taller than Mayweather reached crazy reach in guys still couldn't put up a representative fight again though I'm much smaller right there's it doesn't it doesn't matter man because I've seen small dudes like a box fight big dude and drop them clean cuz they professional they know they're doing for the best fight for generation like he carried him literally through the fight because I'm like, you could have smoked him in the first round call. I mean, he has 30 years of experience. Right? Logan Paul has two fights in it. And another youtuber that's 1000 bullshit for him to call a robbery. You don't stay in the bank for 20 minutes when you robbed but you end you out going in? You know, dust him off real quick get out. That's it. Yeah, but they dragged it on a dance they was hugging each other for eight rounds. There's a clip going around online that I had to really look at where he hits him. And it looked like Logan Paul was like was done and he you know, you see Mayweather like holding them up like yo you know, you got to stay off for this man we got a few more because the whole thing that we watch like Mayweather hands like almost around his waist to keep them up and Paul like like, you don't get out of here if you don't knock this man out. Man you see this and this is the bullshit I'm talking about when we compare the generation we grew up in 80s and 90s compared to this bullshit now which is to me and every aspect in every facet and support trap info and world and rapping and music like is this soft and weak and weak minded? There's like no heart You know I'm saying like a Muhammad Ali when and he fought You know, he fought a Nikita wrestler. But that was a wrestling match. It was exhibition we all know that you know, but he wasn't in a boxing ring. But that was different because he was banned from boxing, right let him boxing everything going. Right. Right. But can you imagine? Muhammad Ali van der Holyfield Sugar Ray Leonard, Sugar Ray Robinson, going in there with a celebrity youtuber or somebody like that and putting on a show. Now it took the crap Seriously? Correct. What were those guys trying to do? They was trying to prove who the best was. Holyfield was trying to fight Lennox Lewis he was trying to fight Mike Tyson. He was trying to fight Riddick Bowe he was trying to fight George Foreman it was all fighting each other. Cesar Chavez nobody talks about Cesar Chavez he was like at you know, at one point by talking about Florida's 50 you know, Cesar Chavez was at and oh, at one point he retire undefeated because he kept fighting to this day he's still trying to fight you but to have a pay per view fight like next next month for some he's like 60 but what I'm saying is they had heart though, is what I'm saying. You said they was fighting the best he was fighting everybody like Nah, I'm not gonna take these these bullshit fights like Mayweather alright for me to accept it. Look how long it took them to accept the fight with Manny Pacquiao. And yes, he beat Manny Pacquiao Manny Pacquiao had a broken arm. He had a torn ligament but Okay, I gotta take it away from him But okay, but how Look how long it took them to accept the fight and even when he took the fight, okay, you have to accept all of my terms. It has to be in the venue. I select the weight class I select the glove size, I select the referee. I select the judges. I select the ring size I select like come on bro i mean that's just boxing right but it wasn't that hard back then to make a match y'all don't care how much money we gain as long as I want to fight the best out because I want to be known as the best Am I right or wrong? Yeah right but the problem with that is that back then there were less belts like the WBC the IBF wb a and a ring title and that's another thing everything is like 20 belt 1000 belt everybody's a champion you get participation awards now be you shouldn't do that I hate that part. You know what I'm saying? And the only fight I can even think of back then all the only box I could think that was dodging anybody was really bow when he dies. He dies mike tyson who want to know parts of Mike Tyson. And in a recent interview he said that you know that the case was the whole issue was with Don King right on King order money whatever it was and you couldn't make it happen. I call dunking on everybody money. I mean, that's the whole part about getting Errol Spence and Crawford to fight it's not that they don't want to do that. He's with this organization there with that organization you gotta you gotta make it happen Pacquiao fight everybody that's why he's fighting aerospace is gonna probably lose and retire he's gonna get retired because they're out right now. But he's gonna fight and I thought the Crawford fight would be making more sense because we both on top right there will be easy to dispense fine. Good for him. But in case you have to go Alright, and now getting off a box and let's go into baseball for example. Baseball, you play two games in a row all you got to sit a man down. Okay, you got Cal Ripken, Jr. Back in the day who played 15 straight season without missing a game. And you know, he played through some injuries. I've had a problem with that example. But okay, why? Because he's an exception to the rule like Tom Brady like no, but but no. Okay, but that's not an exception because everybody was playing every game you go back to everybody from the you know, from the 80s 90s. And they were playing 140 150 games. Now you got to rest the guy every day every you know, once or twice a week load management like they do in basketball. You can't play to you came off injury. Oh, you got to sit every other game you can't play back to back games. You can't play a day game after a night game like what is all it is? Well, they pay me a hell of a lot more to the pro con it like protecting their investment. Three haven't played a game together like they've only played like, maybe eight or nine games together. Or Yeah, the three guys. Yeah, but that's like, but that's injuries though. Like that. That wasn't like low management like no, I'm legit hurt. Hard. Are they? Oh, are they though? I'm not going to ask about a man's medical records. Man. The NBA is the softest League of any sports league. You can't find no, but you can't touch nobody. You can't look at the referees even wrong or they give you a technical foul. Why is generation z so soft? You got you fucked up go watch old clips of 80s and 90s NBA doll The only way you got to tech was just saying somebody in the face. You know, just say you'd like to see people getting assaulted. That's all you got to say you were getting assaulted. You can't hand check though. You can't even put your hands on a person because it's a foul. So every so the league's are to blame too because now they're catering to the soft as you know, the generation like they're catering to that shit. No, they're catering to the paying customer that they're catering to the fan. No, but what fan because I don't like that. I don't like this brand of basketball. Do you know you don't but you don't pay to go into a read of either. And this is my point. Are they catering to the young demographic, because that's what I'm talking about being the soft as generation counter, they're not catering them, they can't afford it. So we're the catering services and catering to the old school generation that wants to see the hard nosed shit. The people who have money they want to play they wants to see rough you know, Charles Oakley alright when Michael Jordan attacked the rim against the Knicks you told me if I'm lying if Oakley amazing one of these guys even Ewing was on the pier in the paint. Jordan had to earn good going to the line he was getting clothesline. I've seen them get power bombed, and it was a call to a common file. Sometimes they wouldn't even call a foul. There was no technicals being given. And Jordan was played every single game he played every preseason game. Then he went ahead and played all 82 NBA games and then when he went to the playoffs, he usually won the whole thing so he played all the games there what was it three in the first round or however long that went? That was a five game series then he played the next series was a seven game series and the next game series he played every single game didn't miss a game now you can't play two games in a row or you got to rest the guy that's some soft as shit. Not soft man. What do you mean this and I'll explain why guys are getting injured anyway so don't give me that all they're trying to preserve them because of the injuries. No, they're gonna get injured. Anyway, you look at baseball, the Yankees be trying to rest guys every other day and they still get hurt. No, I don't want that. I don't want that. And I'm just talking about the physical toughness of the of the generation today. I haven't even gotten into the heart or I haven't even gotten into the mental toughness is the thing. You're the static about all of them. Oh games. Those old games are hard to watch because it's like it's there's no offense there's no movement there's no nothing to play D for there is often talk about Jordan average 30 points in his career this offense. He did. It wasn't a bunch of great he did. For example, I'll pull this up right now so the Knicks Houston finals nights then for right first game rockets 185 78 next game next 191 83 many fun rockets 193 89 next game next one for the team in the league. What do you talk about? It was impossible to score 100 points on the next Hayao every team scores 120 points and up. No, I'm not as all the rules are catered. I'm not. I'm not paying for my look at Johnny's file, you're gonna get free throws, there's all day and be bored. A guy like James Harden goes to the free throw line. A lot of times 20 times in a game, he gets 20 points off the free throw line. That was unheard of back then. back then. But like I said, you can't compare back then. And now because like, I don't know how you can defend the shipment. Because Because if you look in the 50s and 60s, they play hard in the dues in the 80s and 90s. But no one ever talks about them. No, I'm talking about my generation growing up, but I'm saying because it gets better back then scores is like 6672 there was there was no there was no trainer there was no they were they were not not on private jets on commercial jet 611 dues and commercial sorry I'm a proponent Oh train that no engine I like to watch. They play defense too. But like I said, the game progresses and the scores go up and things there was always a saying that when for every sport defense wins championships, correct. That was the always the saying football and basketball are not the case anymore. Because the rules are just catering for the offense. And that's fine thing off as players that you can you look at it wrong. It's a it's a penalty. Things change. And that's fine. He's only went as letting him like, yo, just fight it out. Right. But that's why hockey second. That's why nobody watched it. There's nothing exciting about it because it doesn't evolve. every sport evolves to get faster, bigger, stronger, better skilled. Okay, fine. Does that mean airsoft? No, it just means that the game has gotten better. That's what Steph Curry average 30 now Yeah. In the in the 90s. No, probably would have averaged 35. And no way, Jose, because he's not going to get all those file calls that they get no flopping that goes on. It doesn't matter. Because back then, all you got to do is do a head jerk like Trey young girls, and you're on the free throw line. Your best three point shooter was shooting like 34%. And they weren't shooting from 30 feet consistent. That's not true. 34% free throws What are you talking about? I would say three points or three points. Yeah, because they're part of the game like that you every team had like one, maybe two three point specialists. Right now. Now every player needs to be able to shoot threes. But if you take staffs ability and put them in at age 90 telling me he's not after 30 No, because they would have been roughing them up. They try that now he still be he'll be cooking. You can try. But like I said, something. Like I said those Knicks teams, they weren't really that memorable. They remember to ask who were Knicks fans, but in a sense of skill. It wasn't only so many skilled guys in a team, rough and tumble DJ but it wasn't like a bunch of guys who can actually do other things. Hope was a great rebounder antinomies could handle a little bit. Charles Smith could shoot a little bit but they weren't real versatile. Like, like to play now you have to have more and more the way that the way the out of the way these guys like curry and Trey young and these bass players create spacing for themselves to shoot these threes. That wasn't allowed back then they wouldn't have allowed that because back then they would have been in your face. Now they can't do that. They got to give you all the space or else as a file. Okay, you know what I'm saying? I'm saying that they would have been in your face, they would have been grabbing you they used to grab your shorts and your jersey. Remember Kurt Thomas remember Kurt Thomas used to always grab the two jersey you can't do none of that now. They kept they kept they made sure you stayed in front of the you know, so that he wasn't gonna be created creating all the spacing that he does now. Yeah, but certain things about ability you can't worry about like I said, I could say that about stuff. I could stick COBie in the same thing would make a difference. Same thing. COVID would be COVID. Okay, all right. All right, fine. I'll give you the physical aspect of it. But let's go into the mental aspect of it. Back then, when I grew up, and I don't want to sound like an old man, like all back in my day, but I'm just telling you why or my generation was better than the softail generation today. When back then teams or players rather, one didn't leave the team that they were on to try to ring Chase. Two, they wasn't trying to team up with Jordan Jordan wasn't trying to team up with Patrick Ewing. Barkley wasn't trying to go and team up and make a super team to the beat, right? Am I wrong? They were trying to beat each other because the point was to prove who's the best and Jordan kept proving that he was the best. But Patrick Ewing could have been like, you know what, I'm a free agent. I'm going right to the bulls and the bulls would have gotten him because he would have been the best center they've ever had. I'm gonna go play with the bulls and I'm gonna just win championship with Jordan because I can't beat him. And today's era guys just want to go play together create the super team cuz it's not even about you know, proving who's the best. There's like literally no heart now. I'm gonna call a bunch of my boys. And we're gonna go team up in whatever city we choose to To play in, and we're gonna create a super Team 234 All Stars. And that's how we're gonna win these championships. That's not fun to watch. Is that fun to watch? It's interesting. That's not fun to watch at all. Hey y'all it's that's just the hell ring of him talking to worry about it. You know, I'm saying like having to rant. He couldn't beat the warriors. So I'm gonna go join them. Create a super team win a bunch of championships left then I'm gonna create another super team and go to Brooklyn like to me that's that's some soft shit. It tells me you have zero heart. You're weak minded. Like you don't like pressure. You don't you? Don't you have no fight and you like, I don't know. I don't know what to tell you, man. All right, here's my counter. The reason why they couldn't move around is because they couldn't move around. What do you mean it? Alright, but we're gonna we're going to do numbers right? I'm gonna run this down. Half mil 630,007 700,000 8000 2,000,002.2 2.5 3.24 mil, four mil, four mil? 3.8 mil? 3.8 mil? 30 mil 33. mill, one mill one mill. What does that Guess whose career salary that was? I think Jordan. Yes. That was Michael Jordan's not he made more than that. No, he was two years in Chicago can be 30 and $33 million. I haven't made more than $4 million in salary. Okay, but it's an allegation. Let's not talk about because it's inflation, bro. That was a lot of money back then. Right. But like the saying, Babe Ruth never made a million dollars. He did it. Right. But the salary cap in 1995 was $23 million. And it's like critics say you're 70 now and kristaps is about to make 30 something this year right? It's like because guys didn't have the space so like if I'm a superstar I'm the only one getting superstar money on this team because no other team could afford it. So if I got the ability and the freedom to actually move around and get more money, I should probably do so because I'm only gonna do two shifts a month. But eventually those guys tried like a king. A king and Barkley and Drexler a travelers late in their career. So once before it happens guys are doing it now in their prime not even trying to win a Chevy they're just trying to buy the shit. We got to team up and just bully away into a championship. I can't I can't bring that stuff up. Yes, that's our fault. Can we put so much emphasis on the title defining who you are? That now guys just want to get one to see like I got one I'll tell you what, though. I respect a Charles Barkley or Patrick Ewing more than I do a character ran help Charles Brock he was chasing towers he got traded to Phoenix he went to the right and he got traded he got traded though bro. right he went through the rockets at the tail end of his career he wasn't in his prime talking by I'm just going to assign with a super team right to win a chip. Like I said that was the whole thing not to be enjoyable. I want to go to the best team I can to win a championship. He could have went somewhere else and probably been the second best player there but I'm going here specifically so can win the title. Can you imagine the backlash of the uproar if Jordan would have been like you know what I'm gonna take my talents to New York and Timo was doing he tried to now he did he just used the Knicks as leverage to get a raise from the from the from the from the Chicago you just get any gotten? Yeah. And he got $30 million. I was never gonna it worked. It worked. But the whole thing is that you can doubt guys, the whole thing is that I want to make as much money as possible. And like I said, it's different back then for those guys that grew up playing AAU together. It's been a lot of their careers together, so on so forth. So you got a bunch of guys now who literally grew up in a system where they've been friends their entire life, like I mean, I mean, Jordan and pratiquement, the five star up in pa something like that. But it's camps and shoe companies all over the place. We've been playing with this guy since I was a little kid. If I get a chance to play with him, we're going to play with him. That's the whole thing. They're like, maybe no Boston shooting involved and somehow traded for Bradley Beal cuz him and Tatum were our friends. Like, that's the shit that goes on. I'm not saying that. It's cool, but it's what they do actually think it's some sucker shit, but it's how it works. I want to play with my friends. And if I can play my friends, I'd give myself a title. Sure, why not? I don't agree with it. But that's the game that we're in now. I'm not calling himself doing so. You still got to be professional, you still got to do your job. Because if you don't, okay, what do you want to play? You're going to get this league if you can do shit. And I'm just talking about sports, though. I haven't even gotten into like societal in general as a whole. And I just think I just think this generation is just much much softer. You know, I'm saying and I think it contributed to smartphones, computers, internet, I guess it is a lot of different reasons. Probably why kids are inside the house more. We have to go outside. You know, I'm saying like, I'm bored to go outside. We was outside coming back all scraped and bloody like we was outside. You know, fighting and wrestling playing in the playground playing football playing basketball. You know, men blame your wife. What do you tell your wife? Because every time your son falls come running over to my mother like, yo, are you dead? Keep walking. My son be like my ACL broke my leg. I'm gonna tell I'm gonna tell a story right now. So me you, your wife, your sissy, your son, and your cousin all decided to go to brunch one day? Well, not not too long ago. So there's a park where the brunch spot was like, Alright, so we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna walk down here. You know, let Andrew play around on the stuff to the slide no other stuff. So we're walking, right? And all of a sudden this little boy starts coming up limp, looking like Willis re finals, dragging his leg around. He can't walk, you know, blown out his ACL or or torn Achilles heel to kill us, whatever. All of a sudden he can't walk. who picks them up? I do. Exactly. He you pick them up. You get them down to the park, when you put them down. All of a sudden, Jesus has healed his soul and his bones. We got to he was like, I'm good. Daddy takes off running. I'm okay. And I live in Outlook the whole time I'll discuss it. I'm like, you know, if you're letting him walk, he's fine. He did. He's a child. that children are resilient. You can almost shoot them and they'll be fine. Like, they heal from everything. That's why they died. They always get sick early. They don't catch anything. Are you blaming me for themselves? Are you saying? I'm saying you're helping? Because you knew and I knew he was not hurt. He was not hurt. He was playing hurt the whole time. Just because he didn't want to walk down there. You're not far had to walk go to school. Yeah, exactly. And now as an adult, and he had to go smooth four block to get to the playground. He just couldn't do it. Honestly. I was walking for like an hour. He like his Achilles is killing me. And he literally started limping and dragging his leg. I'm like, yo, he's faking let him walk. If you're gonna cry, he gonna still be crying towards the park and want to see that he gonna stop. Know what to do. Come on Sunday. All right, you're picking right up, drag them on over there. Alright, so we're going to be okay. You put them right down he speedy Gonzalez inside of that park is playing around for hours. And then once we leave, he comes out and starts crying. Then he pulls through. So will the three routine again act like his legs hurt. I'm like y'all see. That's why that's why kids off sometimes got let him go through it. He was fine. Now he run out all the time. His legs, he's perfectly fine. He has the strongest bone I've ever seen for a child. But you want to pick them up this one time. Can't let kids do that. That's why they saw you. You won't let them go through shit. We all got to go through and so then we need to do a better job of turning it around society gets bored glorify dander. But we're going to continue this discussion in a bit. We're gonna have a special guest on right after this.

That's why I fuck with MLB break the fucking rules.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Now he got yo Let me read Let me read Let me read another tweet because somebody has said I'm signed up by him being incoherent cuz he always misspelling words on Twitter. Like he'll spell fuck FAQ. And then somebody said Why you gotta be inquiring he was like incoherent Fuck you and your bitch as father ugly as often hold them off. And then he was like, I'll pissing your blind uncle's teapot bitch. I was like, Yo, this dude is crazy. How does the saying go? The word he was like fuck I look like using pronunciations for who want to say like the words and views expressed in this show are not supported by x y&z amen it's freedom of speech what you want, man? Look, demand funny. He got shit to say. I ain't gonna argue with it. He's interesting. has internet cut off a song but he's funny as shit on Twitter so I figured he you know he come on and explain to us why he so angry had today's job. Explain it man does anchoring like I bet it's cool. Everybody got a thing that says I mean, a lot of fun and humor in it. I mean, I'm cool with it. No problem. You found it funny. I find a little segment right there. I mean, man. The man's funny. I wish he would have stayed a little longer, but it is what it is. which we try to pick them up again. Get everything all set up. Then. Apparently what's been a little bit more time with him. I'm cool with that. What everyone do brother it's totally okay. Now, ladies and gentlemen. We have enjoyed your time. Because like I said, we put it aside put a little glimpse had demand on like I say, he probably got something to say I think you know, he he definitely sounds funny. I'm not saying that to say that he sounds funny like, like in a literal sense, like, you seem like a funny guy. So we're gonna work something out. We probably have him back on Seattle. Go do a little segment with him. You know what, we'll just have a five minute like segment like randomly just to give him a talk, but just let him just rant about the shitness let him go off. Because I don't know if it's gonna last long, but we can give him give him the 5% you got to say like, Ivan, good, good to hear from you. Hey, man, sometimes you gotta enjoy the heat. Anyway, if anybody agrees with me about how today's generation is softer, for whatever reason. The message is either man, hit me up because I want I don't want to feel like I'm alone in this because I notice a lot of people feel the same way. You're not alone. Trust me. You pretty much the old Dominican dude in the barbershop back in my day. Like oh, the Dominican plants are the greatest ones of all time. Like I do give heed to the conspiracy theory that Babe Ruth was Dominican. Definitely was not I could see him being in his women. So that's low. That was slowly I'll take that back.

Unknown:

See?

Jeff DeLaRosa:

See? That's yours man. That's your old representative saying shit like that Not me. I tend to man to make like oh no, he hit her like Wait, where did that come from? Because that is either doing steroids or being a women. When you look at the list of players in baseball that have gotten suspended for steroids and or for you know domestic violence. I think I was reading this the other day something like 90% literally are Dominican that's not even an exaggeration That's sad. And we all just because we that's all we do we play the shit Jesus Christ man. So Wow, don't ever bring up that stat again keep it to yourself. But we lead we lead the league in homeruns and hit women like wait what league the league and hits period periods or hits especially females we tend for 10 we run the cycle every week.
