On today's part, it my take a week marches on and we have a two four interview for the people, Juju Smith Schuster from the Pittsburgh Steelers, awesome interview with him. And then our colleague, Wil Compton, who is currently a free agent in the NFL, talked to us about grit, about making an NFL roster, being one of those end of the roster. Guys, what you need to do. Awesome interview with him.
And also kind of a full circle because he was coached by Bo Pelini, one of the first ever, we guess we also have hotsy cool thrown guys on chicks. And we're going to get ready for our 24 hour stream coming on Wednesday before we do that part. My take is brought to you by the cash app, and you should be downloading the cash app because on our 24 hour stream, we are collecting donations for the Children's Miracle Hospital Network. So we're doing a little fundraiser.
You can send money to money sign part in my take and then we're going to dump all the money to the Children's Miracle Hospital network at the end of the stream. So it will be fun to see how much money we can raise for a great cause. And Kashyap is the best for that cash app is the best app in the world. It links directly to your bank account. We love the cash app. You don't need to be face to face.
You can send someone money remotely. It is the number one social distancing app. It's the number one app in our hearts. And of course we download the cash app, enter the referral code, bar stool. You get ten dollars free. So go do that, get ten dollars for free and send it to part of my take and we're going to send it to a great cause and also great cause.
Cash app will send ten dollars to the ASPCA.
So download the cash out from the App Store Google Play for today. Get involved with. OK, let's go. Out the here is violence, and this will soon be done talking. No. The Washington and you can't blame it all on one side and no one No. I. Welcome to part of my take presented by the cash for download. Right now, you court, you get ten dollars for ten dollars. The ASPCA today is Wednesday, July 29.
It is the day of our 24 hour gret street.
That's right. Hopefully you listen to the show in the morning because you're going to have 24 hours starting at noon of strictly part of my take of dudes.
It's just dudes stream sponsored by dude wife. So. Yeah, and Bud and Bud Light.
So we've got in addition to all the different activities we're going to do, which we'll get into in a second, I feel like we should discuss the hourly challenges that we will be undertaking because there's been some debate going on back and forth about who has it the worst when it comes to these hourly challenges.
Big cats going to be eating a hot dog, one hot dog every single hour. I will go back and forth between buns. I will probably more buns and less, but there will definitely be some hours that I Rodong, he will be switching back and forth between his buns and his meat.
Billy will be doing twenty six point two miles a marathon. He's doing a marathon over the course of the day. He's on a treadmill on a treadmill. He's also going to be trying to get a new topic trending every hour, wearing a T-shirt with that topic. And he's just going to have to keep every single t shirt on. So change shirts or add an additional shirt every hour until he's wearing 24 t shirts. So at the end of it, by the way, we should start.
You should if everyone can help, the first one should just be gret stream. Yep. Like a stream should be the first one at twelve o'clock to kick it off. So as soon as you wake up and hear this, let's start tweeting. Grit's stream will get it trending, get it ready. We also this was a I don't even remember who came up with the idea that Billy was going to be on a treadmill, but is a genius idea because we've essentially neutralized having to hang out with Billy for all 24 hours, like, yeah, we just put them away.
We're like, it's like walking a dog. The only, you know, a good dog is a tired dog. Yep. Billy will be tired out and we don't get full.
Billy The whole time Billy has been trying to negotiate with me behind the scenes a little bit this week, trying to switch up tasks because I have to drink a beer at the top of every one beer per hour. I'm still a little bit nervous about that. I don't think I've ever drank twenty four beers over that long of a period of time before. Yeah, maybe once or twice in college. I might have crammed those twenty four beers into a shorter time frame, but this one is going to be.
I don't know how my body's react.
I think what's going to happen is at the beginning of the stream, it's going to be very easy at the end when we're low on sleep, it's you're going to start getting drunk.
So Billy was trying to negotiate and say, hey, how about we trade off where he can drink ten beers and I can run ten of his miles?
And I was like, wait, Billy, I'm not going to I'm not going to drink fourteen beers and then get on to a treadmill afterwards. I don't think that anyone's going to like that. Also, I was telling Billy it's for his own good that we're not letting him drink craft beers on this carafes.
So and then Hank has to read what a page out of a book every single hour. And that's the worst actually. Yeah, that's the worst. And then it should be a Jane Austen novel. Jake is going to be doing a rebellion pack of cards every single hour.
So he's hoping for that Foushee card. Yeah. So it's going to be it's going to be I think Billy has is the worst. I think it might be. I think I might have a second worse. I don't know.
I'll trade. But the real question is, is obviously you and me and Jake are probably excluded from this because it'll be easier for me to read whatever 24 pages, Jake, and open 24 packs of cards.
The real question is, which one of you guys is going to bow out the earliest like and like will pfft. How many beers on a twenty four will you drink. How many hot dogs and twenty four will big cat eat and how many miles out of 24 will Billy actually do.
So that is the I think big cat people should be judging the whole out first.
He's going to have some major shifts after like five or six.
I'll be fine. I'm going to eat them all. Yeah you can I. Can I throw. I don't. No. Yeah, OK. I might throw up at some point. I actually think I had this.
I think I'll do like I think you guys are both going to all of you will be closer to like fifteen.
Could we barter behind the scenes. Can I be like a big cat. Take two of my beers, I'll take two. You know, I want to eat twenty four hotdogs. I don't want to be up for the challenge now with Hank. I had this idea last night. Tell me what you think about this instead of reading a book or maybe in addition to reading a book, you remember that game, the twenty four challenge challenge. Twenty four.
Yeah. Cards that have four numbers on them and you have to figure out how to get to twenty four using those four numbers. What if we do, what if we gave Hank or three card at the top of every hour and he's not allowed to participate whenever fun activity we're doing until he solves the three point one.
OK, I like that. Where are we going to get that. I ordered him. OK, perfect. So we're good to go. OK, he has to do a puzzle.
What do I do. Twenty six point two miles with twenty four miles. Twenty four miles.
Little less than a marathon. Yeah. Twenty four. That's fair. We're doing 24 beers, 24 hot dogs. Twenty four moneymakers. Twenty four packs of cards. Twenty four puzzles.
It's going to be great. You say a baker's marathon. Yeah I like that. I like that. And also kudos to Billy for waiting approximately seven minutes into recording this to trying to get out of.
Oh I mean. Yeah. Billy, Billy, time and place for Billy is just irrelevant when it comes to like, hey, Billy, you got to do this. Yeah. Like maybe takes a breath and he's like, do I really have to do that?
So we have a lot planned, though. It's going to be fun. 24 hours. We're going to be raising money for the Children's Miracle Hospital Network. So if you have, you know, money that you, you know, want to donate to a great cause, it's a dollar sign, part of my take on the cash up. So we're going to raise money throughout. We're going to dump it all into the Children's Miracle Hospital Network at the end of the stream.
We'll do that live on the stream. You can watch us. So that will be great. It's going to be a great cause. And then we also have some fun things planned. We have we're going to play some Jenga. We have some ping pong. I think we are going to do a couple interviews.
We have maybe Danny Woodhead, who's going to be putting us through a workout at like 6:00 a.m. We're going to play some video games, maybe against some guests of ours. We're going to do an episode of Chopped for Dinner, two episode, two episode. And for breakfast we do a spelling bee. And then at the very end, we're going to do dozens trivia with Jeff DLO and Brandon Walker, which should be just horrendous by us.
So I actually want to nominate by the way, I saw the teams. I would like to look like it's Hank PFG and myself first Jake, Billy and Brennan. I would like to make an amendment to those teams. I think that it should just be Billy and Brandon. I think Billy and Brandon, Billy Brennan's going to have such a heads up like a leg up on us because we will have not slept. And Brandon, you'll be drunk. I'll be sick any time.
Brennan is not on camera. He is sleeping. Right. So hibernators. So Billy and Brandon, though, the combo, the two of them dealing with.
OK, so I don't mind at all. I actually like that. The problem is Jeff has it in his head because he runs the dozen trivia contests where he has like these graphics set up. Right. And the box is set up. Jeff doesn't like having an off kilter screen where there's a ton of people on one side and two people on another. So if we can convince Jeff, well, we can all sit in the screen together.
Well, we we could be in one screen.
But the way that he has it set up on screen, like the way that the the graphics package is going out, is that there are two screens, one on each side.
Right. But I'm saying it could like the four of us, could sit on one screen together and the two of them could sit on one.
He just doesn't like the off balance. Right, right. OK, well, we'll have to we'll have to negotiate that.
We want to lock me in a room with Brandon. I think you'll be very funny.
I want Brandon Walker to actually murder you. Right. And Jake would be too much of a city or toddler because Jake is like a reasonable human being that Brandon Walker can reason with. So that would eliminate the tension between you and Brandon.
Can I give you a sneaky little peek into who I think will be the first to murder somebody else? Because I don't think that it's going to be Brandon murdering Billy. I think that might be the second murder of Lifestream. I think that there's an outside chance that Hank murdered Jake.
Because you don't think Hank first. Billy Hank hates Billy. Yeah, but we're going to be playing in the second hour, the second segment.
And Hank and Jake have an actual rivalry and actual like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, these teams don't like each.
Oh, good rivalry. Good thing they'll get mad at each other in the murders. Have twenty two more hours to hang out and instigate them.
Yeah, I remember that when you were a kid and you'd have like one sleepover with your best friend, it was the best night ever. You like. This is sweet. Let's do it again. And then by the end of the second night you just wanted to kill me. You're like get out of here. It's going to be like that except in the second hour for. Yeah. So we're very excited. Again, if you just started listening this year, we usually do a great week at a training camp tour.
Obviously we can't. So we thought this would be a fun way to do something that follows all the CDC rules and the pandemic rules. We're all together and we're going to make the best of it. And it's going to be fun, HOPPEN, when you can't. And by the way, we'll tweet out, but we are going to watch two movies. We're trying to figure out exactly how we can do it so you can watch it with us so you can just pull up the screen and see what we're seeing, mystery science theater type.
So we'll do that in the middle of the night. And we're also going to record reviews of that. That will be on Friday show. So we'll let everyone know what those movies are. So if you can't stay up, you're not up with us, you'll be able to watch it. And we're going to pick some classics so everyone will be able to probably have seen it before. So that is coming noon tomorrow. Get excited. Other news, baseball is all the way back, except the Marlins are just done.
Yeah, I mean, I would have bet my ball sack it was going to be the Mets that would have all their players infected in every other team be fine.
So that's actually saying I my boss came off the top. It's pretty cool. Is got ready. I would bet my ball sack my being that I would wager my beanbag that it would be the Mets. So I'm shocked that it's the Marlins, but it's like what? Seventeen players and the way that they handled it was probably the worst way that they could handle the situation where they had a bunch of players, I think, for testing positive on Monday.
Right. Or on Sunday? Over the weekend, I believe. And then they all got in a group thread together and they were like, hey, do you want to keep playing? And the team was like, sure. So then Don Mattingly said, yeah, we're going to. Yeah, right. And there was no checks or balances put out by Major League Baseball. So now the whole team is saying, listen, I, I love baseball.
I stay up till 1:00 in the morning watching the Cubs almost blow the fucking game to the Reds. And I had that moment where I was like, why am I doing this? Because this season could just be canceled at any moment. Why am I investing my time? But I'll still watch every game. But I don't I think I'm like a lot of people right now, every bad news. My first thought is what does this mean for football? Because I don't know if you have to cancel the entire season for a single team, and I don't think they're there yet.
But they did say they're canceling the week, which I don't get how they're going to, like, rectify the schedules.
And the schedule for the Marlins is canceled until Sunday. Right. Everybody will be fine by Sunday.
So and and so the Marlins are canceled for a week. We had a bunch of people in the NFL. No, like big time, big time guys. But a couple notable names opt out for this year. And it just makes me nervous. I'm just nervous. I just want I'll say it again. Maybe it's been too long. Maybe I haven't been forceful enough. Nerds come up with a fucking vaccine, feel what you feel to it, feel what you feel.
You're allowed to be nervous. I think we're all in that same boat together. We're every little bit of bad news. You're like, well, how much longer is this going to go on? When you say no big names, you're kind of right. But the entire Patriots defense is basically like, what, five or six guys?
So do you think that this is Belichick being like, we'll just get Trevor Lawrence?
Well, there was a quote given to Adam Schefter today from an anonymous GM, and it said, you know, Bill is masterminding all of this somehow. For what reason? I don't know. That's why he is who he is.
So everyone of Jim's are just like us. Yeah. Yeah. Everyone assumes that Belichick has his shit together. I think that the Patriots might be putting together like a shadow team and just getting through camp. And he's got all these guys that he knows wants to be impact starters. He's going to be my shadow team. They're going to stay healthy, and then I'm going to bring him in before the season starts. That's just me being too woak because Belichick is always up to something and have way more cap room.
He and he also just doesn't I mean, he has the ultimate whatever, not like one hundred percent job security. He has like double that. So he knows that he could probably tell his guys like, hey, if you don't want to play, you don't have to play look like a good guy and then possibly draft.
Trevor Lawrence, have we gotten to take from Gotlieb yet that all these players are dropping out on the Patriots because Cam Newton is a bad leader? Yeah, or they're just not having fun. Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's another one.
That could be I don't get the Trevor Lawrence thing like the Patriots do the exact opposite of a team that would be like we need Trevor Lawrence. No.
Against everything, need Trevor Lawrence. But it would be better to have Trevor Long. But the like six players opting out like the Patriots. They're like the Dolphins last year, like everyone thinks are going to be bad. But even if they're going to. Yeah, they're not going to be in a patricof takes care of his body.
OK, yeah. Don't you think also about to have a baby. Yeah, well that makes it a lot of guys don't like the high risk factor. Right. Like I think it's ah if your BMI is over a certain point, which is not saying that you're not an excellent athlete because those guys are usually the best.
Oh you see those like Eddie Goldman from the Bears opted out. I think the nose tackle from the Vikings opted out. Yeah, some of the bigger guys are probably like, yeah, this is not worth.
Marquise Goodwin opted out from the Eagles. So they're back to having no wide receiver geographic. They're ready to go. I actually think that Goodwin is just he's saying I'm going to train for the Olympics next summer. I was wondering this.
If you opt out like David Price. Right. And he opted out if if the Dodgers, which they will make the playoffs, if the playoffs happen, can you just be like, fuck it, I'm opting back in. I want a chance at a ring.
There are probably some rules around that, I would imagine, because that would be the ultimate like I'm going to opt out and I'll just wait and see how my team does and then I'll get the fuck back it.
I mean, Roger Clemens did that for four years, right? Brett Favre did that several times.
I haven't seen you know what the more people do opt out, the more I start thinking maybe, you know what? Maybe Brett Favre could come back. Yes, you might have another year left.
And I'm just I'm getting nervous. I am not. There's also this. You get like a million tweets now on Twitter to be like, why is sports media? Why are sports media people rooting, rooting against sports happening? It's like I don't think anyone's really doing that. I think we're just nervous. Don't it's an unknown.
I'll I'll be the first to admit that I have no idea what's going to happen. And that makes me terrified.
I'll be the first to admit that I have no idea what's happening, but I am very much rooting for there to be a football. Yes, if there's a football season, I don't I will be there's zero part of me that doesn't want football to be played, but I also don't know what's going on and it sucks. So, yeah, that it just it's just one step forward, two steps back every single time.
So they should there should be a punishment for the Marlins or for baseball. I don't know, because you can make the argument that it's not necessarily the Marlins fault, because most baseball players would say, yes, we want to play this weekend. You know, I don't think that most players, maybe a few here or there, would say, no, I don't want to show up. But for the most part, they want to play base. So do you punish Madingley, but he's not like an infectious disease expert?
No. Do you punish baseball? I say you punish Derek Jeter, OK? I think that that's fair. You make Derek Jeter go out there and he plays. I like that. Yeah, like an old timer. Tell me you wouldn't watch a game where the Marlins, it was just like Derek Jeter, Gary Sheffield, all the old Marlins fucking superstars going out there and just whipping on every pitch.
Yeah, as long as it's just nice to see sports. Nice to have, like, the ability to go home and be like, oh, there's a sports game coming on and I'm just scared there's going to be taken away from us.
Although the bubble life seems to be working because NBA is going to start on Thursday and it feels like they're good. Knock, knock, knock.
I did I did start Monday's show saying baseball's all the way back. And then it was like, boom, the Marlins have been canceled.
Well, I think when you see the bubble life, it's worked for MLS. It's worked for the Women's Soccer League.
It I don't. Yeah, it's MLS. MLS season is officially over. Somebody won. Who was. That's not true, is it? It's still going. They play their games are like one third job.
MLS, they did in MLS plays their games as if it's a Korean World Cup soccer match it like one thirty in the morning.
I can't keep track of where it's going, but MLS, I don't think they've had a single positive case after people have been like, quarantined in the bubble.
Yeah, yeah. So Will, hopefully it works. By the way, the talking soccer at 245 tomorrow, Swansea's got their their game to try to get to the final game before they can go up the semifinals to reach the peak of the lower league.
Correct. I like we'll have that on. We won't be able to show it on the screen, but I'll be we'll have it on somewhere in the stream. OK? All right. So let's get to Hotsy Cool Throne before we get to Juju Smith, Schuster and we'll Compton Gratwicke twenty twenty is here and well, maybe a little different this year. Our friends at Bud Light want to keep it help, keep it special. That's why they're giving away a custom gret week frige, just like the one we have in studio to a lucky AWOL to stock full of ice cold bud lights.
All you have to do is enter, tweet, hashtag gret fridge and hashtag sweepstakes on Twitter. Again, tweet, hashtag grippe, fridge and hashtag sweepstakes to enter no purchase necessary open to U.S. residents. Twenty one plus ends seven thirty twenty. The official rules that put light dot com slash garet fridge for more details. Do it, do it, do it. Our great friends at Bud Light hashtag pilferage hashtag sweepstakes.
OK hotsy cool thrown Henck on the hot seat is the chain smokers.
My they had a quote unquote social distance concert and in the Hamptons last weekend and they like for whatever reason put out a video of themselves being like, look at how successful the social distance concert was.
It was a it was a drive in and everyone had to stay in their own camps six feet apart from everyone. And in the video, you don't see any cars. You just see it looks like a regular concert. People like wall to wall. Yeah, right next to each other. I mean, freaking out there.
That song is closer. Not like maintain a safe distance away from.
Yeah. And so and then and then the articles that came out, this was the headline which is a ridiculous headline. Organisers defend the chain, smokers dicy Hamptons Concert for Fuck Cherries Tequila Brand and apparently the opening day.
Also the CEO of Goldman Sachs.
That guy that guy like he's a pretty prolific deejay. I've seen him around a few places and I think that that might be the douchy a sentence you can actually come up with. Yes or no. Defend the chain smokers dicy Hamptons concert for Fuck Jerry's Tequila Brand.
No, no, no, not that one. Opening set done by Deejay, who's also an executive at Goldman Sachs.
The CEO of Goldman Sachs did a job in the Hamptons opening for the chain smokers.
That's a sentence ever created that actually it sounds like a Gary v. Madlib.
That's so bad. Oh, my God. Holy shit.
I just add like as an undercard for Paul brothers fight. Yeah.
Yeah, they're in the hot seat. Big time people are mad. Cuomo is mad, everyone's mad.
And the my cool throne is leaking his nipple ring. I saw it. We don't know how his nipples were going for that tweet. And the cool thing is LeBron literally. So you guys I'm sure you guys have seen how they're doing, the NBA media interviews and they'll tweet like the behind the scenes, like a player sitting on a stool in front of a zoom call.
LeBron was literally sitting in a throne and like he was like, I need to lower my chair. Someone was like, hey, it looks like you're sitting in a throne. And he said, absolutely not. It's one of these hallway chairs everyone sits in. Frank Vogel did the next interview. He was back in the stool. It was literally only LeBron James. I was sitting in the throne and he was acting like it was like, oh, yeah, this was a coincidence.
I need to look up and see if this was actually a thriller. Look.
Yes, please. LeBron throne. OK, let's see. I like it, though.
LeBron sets enthrone like this is from LeBron Wired.com.
Oh no, that's a that's a throne. No, you know what it is. It's one of the it's one. That's what it's Callaway chair. No, it's a lobby. It's a lobby. It's a lobby. It does look very throne ish. You're right, because it's got the red velvet on there. By the way, I had no idea that USA Today had a website like a subsection of USA Today is called LeBron Wyandotte USA Today.
Look look at Frank Fogel's chair. That's immediately after he's sitting in like a children's kitchen.
It is a lobby chair. I respect the hate, Hank. I think you're. Yeah, you're on the right path.
Did you see that video of LeBron pulling out a big sack of ice from just right on his penis? He was just sitting on the sidelines in the game and just had an ice pack on his penis.
Damn. He's got the grace to in his beard. Big time. That's what washed king.
No, he's not. He's not getting any younger. All right, Patty. What? Your hotseat, cut-throat?
My hotseat, actually, Hank is Taco Tuesday because there was an NBA Reddit account. It's let's see. It's angry, you see angry centrist. So probably putting up some threads on Twitter. Yeah. Seems like probably works for the Lincoln Project, I would imagine. So he did a statistical analysis of every single LeBron James game played on a Tuesday night before the Taco Tuesday era and then during the Taco Tuesday era. I like what he found might shock you.
He found out that pre taco Tuesday he had a win percentage that was four percent higher than normal. So Tuesday nights were LeBron James nights. He would win at a higher clip than he would any other night of the week, almost in the taco Tuesday era, it's minus two percent.
Oh, so he's doing statistically way, way worse go on Tuesday nights because he's eating so many taco or maybe he's waiting to eat him till after the game and that's all he can look forward to.
He's hungry. So he's going on these storms, get through this game so I can get to Taco Tuesday.
That's actually probably why he had the ice pack on either his penis or on his testicle anus area because it was high school and the taco seasoning on his hands.
Yeah, my cool throne is the fullback assist. The fullback assist is on the cool throne. Chris Collins Hollingsworth replied to our initial offer and he has a counteroffer, which I'd like to hear. Yes.
OK, so he addressed it to New York, New York, Basel HQ, July 28th.
Twenty twenty. Dear Mr. Committer, PFV agrees to add a new state of the art metric. The Compter Fulbeck assist. The fullback assist will chart all touchdowns assisted by fullback. Both parties enter into a full commitment to normalize this long overlooked metric. In exchange, Parcells, PMT and PFV agree to split profits on a luxury line of affordable fullback assist.
And here's a guy merchandise. In addition, PFV agrees to give Big Cat a free lead account with personalized concierge service to prove that even a Bears fan can win money. Cheers, peaceful little dog.
Oh yeah. And that's. You know what, Chris? I like that because I have had an elite account and I. I suck at gambling still. But you didn't have the concierge? No, I did. I had everything. I fucking paid everything. So joke's on you dude.
So he's he's made a counteroffer. I don't hate it. I like the idea of the here's a guy line of menswear. I like the idea of creating Fulbeck assist Mirch and I, I think that sounds good to he power shift in on us. By the way, I tried to pull the art of the deal then then power shift.
He also realized that we weren't going to do any follow up, so he just took it into his own hands.
Well, no, I wrote a blog. Oh yeah. But after that, yeah, I wasn't going to be. I said the ball. I would have just tied forever. I said the ball was in his court.
Yes, he responded. Which means that I think I think we should just take this.
Yes. No, take the deal. All right. No, no, no, no, no. Now add you like maybe twenty five Chick fil A sandwich.
I was going to say maybe just like a fifty dollar gift card to no Chick 25 Chick fil A sandwiches and twenty five Chick fil A sandwiches.
Twenty five. A mix of spicy and regular. Yes. And more spicy than regular. Thirteen spicy.
Twelve regular and some Polynesian sauce.
Hmm. Extra politicians and one milkshake. That could be your choice. Yes. Flavor is up to you Chris. Yes. A ball is in your court deal.
Done. All right. My hot seat is Aaron Rodgers.
I don't know if you guys saw, but he has taken to the bottle which HUF scary stuff. He said that when he found out that Jordan Love got drafted, he used some tequila to cope.
So problem drinking. I thought he said that he likes scotch. Yeah. So he's problem. He's mixing his liquor, his problem drinking.
He was like, I need the hard stuff. I'm going to the tequila. So I don't know. I'm just I'm just reporting what I heard. I'm not I'm not making a decision one way or the other. Just ask yourself, your Packers fan, do you have a problem? He broke up with his girlfriend. She might have Krystal put a crystal curse on him. He's getting older. You just dropped Jordan love. He's. Drinking way too much tequila, is there a problem?
I think it doesn't bode well for him. He's going to be very, very wobbly on that bike ride out to Lambeau Field with the kids. Yes, yes.
And then my other hot seat is all of us, because we had to we had to basically live with a getting a face time.
We had to live with a Clay Travis first Ravell feud on Twitter. That was that was tough to wake up in the morning.
That was hell.
Hell, when I when I opened up Twitter before making his face many. Trying to do some time. OK. You know, being a dad, yeah. That tweet was I tweeted. I retweeted. Who's that guy? The rapper.
People said that I need to get a currency, dude. Yeah. I would love to get currency on. Can we get him on? What was the tweet that he said? I was like, my kid does not realize. You tell me. Yeah. And I'll find it. When did your kid learn how to use FaceTime?
It's not my kid who's using impressive. Hold on. It said currency is his name when you get he said my son is the homie straight to fuck up man. This kid doesn't even know man made my life full as fuck. Broke my heart.
I was like, yes, I believe that my son is my homie. He doesn't even know.
Don't you actually think it's more valuable skill to teach them how to face time as opposed to holding the camera up in front of them all the time? Yeah. So you get there, give a man a face time, he'll get there, he'll sext for a day, teach him to face time and he'll talk about my son.
I mean, your son's going to learn about chills. Go out there. Jeffrey Epstein, one.
Listen, I'm just saying one is going to want to talk to his girlfriend eventually. Cool.
Ron Kirk Cousins. Cool. Throw in Kirk Cousins because he wears socks with his sandals and gives himself a toe wedgie, which, you know what? I'm going to say it for Kirk Cousins. We always bash him. He's consistent. That is a man who uses tinfoil on his grill for his steaks. That is a man who is as corny as possible. I'm happy that he is consistent in what he wears. Holy shit.
So it's it's the socks and then the thong sandal that goes in between your big toe and your second top. Right. That I don't know what it is about that look, it just makes me like shivers thinking about it. I don't know. I don't like it.
It's gross. Yeah. It's he came out of the womb as a dad. Yeah. He's just embraced dad life his entire life. Also he got the fourteenth. It was either 14th or 15th.
Best quarterback in Sandos annual quarterback to your rankings. So that's good for Kirk Cousins. He's up. He's normally like you can pencil men. He's number sixteen, right? All the time. He's all right in the middle now. He's all the way up to fourteen. So good for him. Wow.
Great for him. All right, Billy, you're hotsy cool. Throw my hotseat is reoccurring guest Paul Raible.
Oh, Raible, the commissioner of the PLL has not been playing well as a player interested so he might get cut from his own league.
He might cut himself.
Well can we cut him. No, he's on our team.
But we can make the Paul Raible clown shirts, right? Yes, because he. Yeah.
Y you're, you're, you're a fucking Atlas fan. You you asshole.
Well, he's on the atlas and he's playing terribly. OK, line zero goals, zero assists. What do you think the reason is?
I think he's wearing shorts too short.
OK now anyway, his father, he's not getting involved in the offense enough to knock the ball enough anyway.
My cool throne is Patrick Mahomes Andrew Mahomes buys into the Royals.
And if his quarterbacking doesn't work out, he can fall back on being a baseball owner.
Wow. 500 million dollars. Hey, you guys hear this joke? Patrick Mahomes now owns two teams, the royals in the Forty Niners.
That's pretty good. I don't think that I would I would like to own the Royals. One of I especially if they're not like fans at the Games, I think I'd just be like, it's not going to be forever.
It'd be a lot of paperwork.
I don't think he's just buying it for the sixty games, just going and having to watch like 163 royals do this right.
Next the facility. Yeah. Still I, I love baseball team.
Baseball team I'm in for I'd buy a baseball team.
I see like the owner's box after practice just like with all the food they. Right. It's not even for the baby. It really is the same. They never show. They don't really show when they show Arrowhead, they don't show the conference stadiums right there, but it is right there. So I think if there's any if you're going to buy it on team, might as well have it right next year job.
Anyway, he's definitely going to try to play at some point, right? Yeah, he's got to ah he's going to lose training, throw batting practice. Yes. Yes, absolutely.
Is that the first owner player in sports.
Oh, well, LeBron I think under the table is taking money from the Cavs, Jackie Moon, the Heat, the Lakers, all those nice.
Yeah, yeah. I think also there's I think there's a bunch of no I don't know, player coaches, not owner players.
Jerry Richardson, who owns who owns the Nets, which I thought there was like a whole group and maybe a couple of players. That's a Russian a Russian billionaire.
I know he is, but I'm saying like Jay-Z and then I don't know, OK, we'll look into it.
Williams A certain part of the dolphins, I believe. Who? The Williams sisters.
Oh, that's right.
Play on the down the team. And Serena Williams daughter owns part of the new NWSL. And so she's probably going to play on that team at some point. That's pretty cool.

Oh, OK. We now welcome on a very special guest. It is Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Pro Bowler, Rose Bowl champion. I got to mention the Rose Bowl greatest bowl game in America. It is Juju Smith, Schuster Juju. Thank you for joining us. We got a lot of things we want to get to. But let's start with just how are you feeling about the season starting and are you ready to go?
Do you do you know, like is there a plan first thing person? I would like to thank you guys for having me on here. Is this pretty big? Honestly, I feel great. Not so great with my body where I'm at training. As far as the season goes, you know, that's something that's up in the air, obviously. And NFLPA and the NFL, what we're doing right now is basically that we report hopefully next twenty eight next week.
And there's definitely being test like every two days. And college coaches and like are being tested like every day pretty much so far. So I think our first test would be Tuesday. And then from there, every two days you cause being tested. And we do that for about two weeks hopefully, and and see if we get something to stir up. So, I mean, I hope you have a season, you know, obviously, like sports is pretty much one of the reasons why, you know, a lot of a lot of people, you know, yeah, we go insane when there's no sports on.
We barely made it through the last four months. It was like tooth and nail to get through it. As like a veteran, as an established guy on your team. Is a part of you kind of excited? You're like, hey, I don't have to do like nine practices this preseason and maybe half of those are just, you know, wearing shells and shorts, almost definitely.
You know, I think my my rookie year, I was the guy that I was I see every day, you know, scouting, you often scout team, you know, pretty much doing everything I can. But yeah, as a bit my practice and, you know, my playing time is not as low as I we want it to be. But I just how it is in the preseason. So you'll see you feel me during pre-season and then you know, when the season starts, that's when we get rolling.
So Big Ben, have you have you thrown the ball with him? He's he's looking so skinny. What the hell happened.
You guys actually can't Big Ben now as well. Ben Like Slim Ben. Yes, Slim Ben. I mean, we have. Well, have you ever seen him in a walking boot?
I've never seen him in a locker room.
That's not true. You're lying. That's fine. That's fine. He keeps walking boots in his closet like they're temes. Yeah. And just like slaps went on in the mornings and. Yeah. Feels like a walking boot that. Come on.
So yeah. Yeah. Obviously we've been working together. That's something that, you know, he brought us together as you know, as a team, as you just to talk to us and you know, just to throw and work out. And that's, you know, working with him on this offseason is pretty much back to where he's at. You know how that's one 100 percent. As you guys know, he lost some weight and that's probably the better for, you know, for him and the better for our team.
So I'm super excited what he was bring to the table. You know, like I said, you all you that to the Steelers fans. Yeah.
I mean, the NFL is more fun with Penn in it. Had to see when he's in the huddle, what's he like? Is he ever, like, fucking juju?
Just get open. Like, I'll I'll fucking hit you, dude.
Like I'm a throw wherever I want. I wish I was in the huddle. He's more of like, you know, come on boys. Like we've been here before. It it's nothing new. This is just practice. You know, we worked on it, you know, in day one, you know, like especially when it goes to like two minute offense where you have to jot down and score. You know, as a kid, I grew up watching and doing that and then fast for like five, six years later on in the same huddle with him.
And he's, you know, he's talking to me. And I was like, this is what it feels like, but it's fun then like you and you and I have you don't want to leave, let nobody down. So it's all about, you know, your teammates.
Yeah. Was there like adjustment period, learning how to play with him at quarterback? Because a lot of times you're on your route and then Ben will somehow have like two defensive ends on his shoulder pads, like a stray cat ran on the field like. Bit his leg and he's dragging that around, he's got another guy around his waist, but he's still, like extending that play and looking for you downfield, like were there some times when you cut off around and you're like, oh, he's sacked right now?
Oh, shit. He's still up.
Yeah, man, was that then you just never know what's going to happen. I started the vacuum of space eyes and that's something that, you know, in practice we do a lot of scramble, just a lot of just you know, you pretty much are running, you know, left and right. And I would say half of my face that I've made this season is obviously a bit of a broken up place.
Yeah. How is Bujji doing? Your dog? Very cute dog.
Bush's lip. And I was just with him and now he's with his girlfriend, Portia. They're hanging out.
So the dog is cooler than I do. Two hundred and twenty three thousand Instagram followers. And right now he's live and he's hanging out with his girlfriend, Portia.
That sounds like better than anyone else is doing right now.
Man, that's awesome.
How long they've been dating for Ozzy, I would say since they first met. So I'd say about almost two years.
That's what 14 dog you better put a ring on now for sure. You know you know, I'm trying to, you know, get some babies out of them.
I read that you played for Snoop Dogg as a head coach back in the day. Is that right? I did. I did, yes. What's he like as a head coach compared to Mike Tomlin?
Is Snoop Dogg a wiseguy which is high? Yeah. At the end of the days, whatever he says, it doesn't really matter because he's and our team that we had was like the all the players we had our team. We all pretty much what do you want? Just because, you know, he had the most that Team USA's league and it was fun and they were just fun, too. So it was a fun experience.
I can see a little bit of similarity, actually, between Snoop Dogg and Tomlin in that, you know, they're probably polar opposites personality wise, but they both had this ability to say things that don't really make sense. But you understand exactly what they mean when they said, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now for sure. I mean, one of the things is like, you know. One of the things that Coach Tomlin would say would just be like, Mike, no matter who you are, how you get here. Doesn't matter, all that matters is that we got to go out there and win and just out of what we take out of that, we just got to win, right? One stadium is a stadium extra stuff, but he says it.
But in a day like it, it gets all of us pumped up, fired up. And we go out there, we get the job. We want to get him to go home.
That's it. Yeah. How many times a day do you think Mike Tomlin says at the end of the day?
No, that's a good question.
You should count, bring a clicker, like to use it, pass to count people and just have a mountain bike.
Yeah, probably like five or six. Ten, I'd say we double figures. Does he ever say shit that you're just like, what is he what are you talking about? We have a couple we've done a couple of segments. Mike Tomlin quotes, because I think he's one of those coaches that he's obviously a big time player coach. But then sometimes you say something very relatable, actually, where in your head it's like this is going to be profound.
And then it comes out, you know, like, what did he just say? What was the big one that we had last year?
I mean, he came up with a standard red standard red barn thing.
Remember, he had something about now I can't think of it.
I need something to bring. Bring your own paint.
Is he in a barn? Does he have quotes that you're just like, wait, what is he saying right now? I don't fully follow, but I know he's right.
I mean, when you when you have someone who's, you know, who's been coaching for you for the past three years, you know, you kind of like it's repetitive. You know, you hear the same things. You know, some things may change a little bit, but at the end of the day, so, like, when someone gets in trouble or like someone gets like a fine, all he says is bang, bang. So, like, if I if you're late, you get five.
It's four, five. If you don't make a start meeting, you're in late or your phone goes off. It's like bang, bang, go like that. I like that.
I'm going to start using that familiar in turn when he fucks up, I'm just going to point to guns and bang. Yeah.
Got fine. Five hundred dollars and ten gone.
Oh did you. I have a bone to pick with you because I was watching one of your videos that you put up on Twitter the other day. It was your garage workout thing that you did. You had you set up a garage to work out, but you left out the most important part of a garage workout. And that's the fridge that you keep in the garage that only has beer in it. And then you drink your beer after that, after the workout, every garage has to have that fridge in it.
Why did you not have a beer fridge?
I don't drink, man. That's something that's that's personal to me. I've never been a drinker. I mean, I drank one time in my life and I wasn't the best it wasn't the best story, actually. It was in college. I was playing beer pong with the person. You know, I'm not I'm a football player. That's frat party. I'm having a great time. You know this guy. These are my teammates like you. Let's play, man.
I beat these kids. I know my teammate. He was really good in English. I would say that he was probably one of the best players I've ever seen and that he had too much to drink. So we lost. I'm drinking beer. Let's have a beer. So I'm drinking beer at night. The next morning I supposed to be on, like Fox Sports was talking about pipe twelve football stuff. And I end up like not making it like that because I had too much beer.
Like I woke up, my voice was like, all right Grassby. And ever since then, like, I've never like I've stopped, you know, drinking. And that's that's why I don't have to be individuated.
You probably have to live longer than all of us. We like that. Probably you can feel it in like doing athletic stuff. This is a dumb question that I ask most wide receivers we have on. But do you ever have a moment where you're just like, it's fucking awesome to be this fast, like you're just running in, you're like, this is sick. I'm fast. It's a dumb question. I'm a slow guy, so I don't know what it's like to be fast, like, is it ever just like, oh shit, this is cool, man, I'm fast.
Not for me. It's not more so about I would I would say, like when I think about how I'm fast, I'm like, yeah, I think I'm fast, like fast enough to get away. But I'm not like fast like you talk about like we talk about other guys fast. Like I look at them like damn these. He's like those guys. My team is work for myself. I'm like, yeah, I can get by like the second and how much I can get you.
OK, ok. I like that answer. I'm a huge college football fan. I do believe that I love traditional powers. I do believe USC not being good the last few years has hurt the PAC 12 in college football overall because we need USC to be good. How the hell do they get good again.
What's going on and see like I think. We just got to do better. And the biggest part for us is like recruiting is we got to go down south, need those big guys, you know, who's going to be in the trenches because we're going to have the athletes going to have us get players. California, like that's what we're just known for, receivers running backs. We're going to have a quarterback know. Most definitely we're not. But our biggest problem is I think we could be great at is I think we could be better in the trenches.
Yeah, that's that's an interesting problem. I've never really thought about it that way, that, like, the state of California is too healthy to produce great offensive linemen and defensive linemen. Would you would you say that's accurate?
Yeah, yeah. I mean, I would say it's up there. You know, if you think about the downside, if you think about like Alabama, you think about those top tier teams, like their running game team, like they're going to run, they're going to run the ball, pound the ball. They're going to throw it to, I think, in the PAC 12, like we throw the ball a lot, you know, and I think it's awesome.
You know, it's cool. I like the ball. But at the end of the day, like, we have to be able to just run the ball more and just dominate in all aspects of the field. So I think USC, you know, like I said, we started off, you know, we've been so over the past couple of years. But, you know, I think we're on the rise and I think we're going to be a team, like you said, a traditional team that's going to come up.
So one thing I love about you is you seem to you seem to be like a guy who doesn't take life too seriously and you do little things that are always very funny. You went trick or treating as yourself in full uniform. That's an hilarious move. How many people like how long did it take for people to realize, like, oh, wait, that's Joujou. Like he's wearing his full, you know, that's Juju.
Or for a while I went down, was like a lot of kids and like, obviously when you're on out, you're wearing those uniforms. We're like the whole logit, like, oh my God, it's juju, it's Juju. But it's like, is it really juju? Because on the hypervisor and they can't really insta take it off. Oh my gosh, it's really juju. So it's just something that's that's my personality, my life. You know, I don't I feel like we have a lot of.
We have a lot of NFL guys who are, you know, pro athletes who just focus on our own sports, which is totally fine. I have nothing against that. You know, I think that if you love football, if you love golf, hockey, basketball, whatever it may be like, that's all you. But like you said, like like LeBron, he's more than an athlete. Those are a few guys who are just like out there who just like show more your personality and, you know, the football players.
It's so hard to do that when you have a helmet on. So outside of football, you know, I live my life to the fullest. I make YouTube videos. I do things that, you know, I can't be doing. I do clouds or other YouTube videos. I do stuff with other Instagram people. But at the end of the day, you know, I do love football. And that's one thing I always get shit for is I like because you really love about is you really care about football.
But at the end of the day, I'm just a human being, too, and I love what I do. I love football. My teammates love to play football. But at the end of the day, I want to be, you know, jujube myself, because when people ask, like, what am I going to. Right. Right.
I think it's more than possible for somebody to play in the NFL, excel at the sport and to have a personality off the field, too. I think that we're starting to see that more and more.
Yeah, that's also that's one of the hardest things to do, is to dominate on the field and also to be active off the field. Because once you you once you start doing that on the field and people look at other teams, he's doing YouTube videos, he's playing so much video games, stuff like that.
Well, the twitch part is great because you get to interact with your fans. And I know you're big. You know, fortnight we so we rated part of my take twitch, rated your stream like two weeks ago and we brought, I don't know, like ten or fifteen thousand people over. And what I don't understand I hope you can explain this to me. You play in the NFL, you played at USC, you play in front of hundreds of thousands of people, millions watching on TV.
But when your stream went from like 600 people to like ten thousand, you're like, holy shit, all these people are watching me. Why? Well, how is that nerve racking when you play in the NFL?
Because, like, it's totally different.
You know, you have dozens of people watching the fans and people on TV who are watching you through TV. It's different because you're out there by yourself. I mean, you're out there like what? Your teammates and everything. You have a helmet on. No one's really focusing on you unless you make a play. Right. And then you get on a computer and now you have like these cameras. It's right in front of you and it's just one on one you interacting with your fans and and it's crazy.
And people rate anybody like it can even be a thousand viewers and people go crazy, you know, and they just, you know, I'm excited. I'm happy. You know, I want it. When you guys ready me when other people raised me, it's cool because like you said, it's it's a different platform for me. This not my original platform. You know, if they had a football streaming, I'm pretty sure, you know, my view is probably a lot higher.
But, you know, to be on Twitch, it's it's unbelievable, man. Like, it's so awesome. Like what you can do on Twitch. Yeah. You know, it just gets me excited. Yeah. Like even like a thousand years. I'm like, oh, let's go, let's go with it. Yeah.
And I saw that you started your own EA Sports Organization team diverge. Is that it.
Yeah. So growing up as a kid, I always been a huge gamer. It was always a passion. And, you know, at one point I was part of Ace and, you know, being with them, I won so much. It's unbelievable what they do. And I was like, man, if I'm if I'm so into gaming, I love gaming. And if I would start any business of my my personal from the bottom up, what would I do?
And then they came down to gaming. And that's something I've been passionate about. And hopefully, you know, we'll be launching soon within the next two weeks. And, you know, we'll be an organization. We're not just gamers, but we're also lifestyle.
Oh, I like that. I like that a lot. All right. So, Juju, I had one last question. It is great week. So we're going to run this during great week. That's next week. And we're sponsored by Body Armor. Great week. You can go get body armor and drink body armor, dotcom or any other flavors on Amazon. I'm a strawberry banana guy. I love it. It's the best. So go get body armor right now.
So my body armor question. So it is great week. We always ask our guests, what does the word grit mean to you and when have you had to use it in your career? I mean, what is. Give me give me give me an example of how you would use grit. All right. Well, making a team or you know what it takes to be excellent in the NFL like that extra bit when your talent doesn't get all the way, you know, I mean, like when your talent isn't enough, you have to put in that extra work, that extra effort, like, you know.
Has there been a moment where you said yourself, you know, OK, I have God given talent, but I'm going to have to do X, Y and Z to make sure that I'm getting to the next level?
Yeah, man, that's a good one for myself. I would say something that. You know, I've always been I was always, you know, fortunate to be on a good team, and I was always fortunate to make the team and to do enough to get by. And when I got to the NFL, like, that's when I had to, like, face adversity. And that's when grit came into my life because, you know, I was put on a team on the side of me where, you know, I had a B I lay beyond Big Ben.
I had, you know, James Caan to come in and he's trumpet. I had so many other Martavis Bryant, you have so many skilled players that I've never, ever had to face up, like not starting a game. Like my whole life I've always started a football game. Whether I was up to going to high school, I was always top tier number one and I got to the NFL. I kind of got like. Sit down like you're not starting this game and even got to the point where am I able to suit up this game?
And that's part one of the hardest things I've had to face. You know, being behind a Martavis Bryant and those guys and Eli Rogers not be able to start a game. And that's where they came in. And that's where I had to put an extra desk, where I had to stay after meeting to talk to my coach, put an extra film mentally, you know, because that's the only way I was play. It wasn't the physicality, it wasn't the things like I had on that.
I can't get it. I was naturally with that. The only thing I was the hardest part was. How much do you know how to play? How much playbook do you know, where can you play? Where do I fit in this ad? That's an example of being able to know all the positions and all the players on the team, because at the end of the day, you know, like everyone's is a savage and everyone's got to get their get their way.
I like that answer.
I like that answer a lot. We're going to let you go before we do. Let me just grab one quick headline out of you. What is your record going to be this year? Is it going to be 11 and five or 12?
And for. You said 11 and five and 12. For which one am I taking? Yeah. Now I'm going I'm going with. Thirteen and three, thirteen and three even better. OK, three, I got to find these I really want to go back down the rabbit hole next time you come on. Oh, if you. Oh, here it is. If you have red paint, you paint your your barn in red. That was a mctominay.
Oh yeah. He was talking about Mason Rudolph getting in the game. Yeah. Yeah. If you have red paint you paint your barn in red simplist. Could be.
I mean that thing is that like I know what it's like work.
Yes. But that's something that's like OK you a if you have a fortune right. When you're out at forty. Yeah.
I think he's, I think the context of that quote was Mason Rudolph is our starting quarterback this week. So we're going to start Mason Rudolph. Yeah.
He also had I think about Jocke like he hasn't killed us yet. I hope he doesn't kill us or something like that. It's like what's going on. Yeah. I love Mike Tomlin fast, as you know. And the best flavor is probably body armor. Oh, okay.
Perfect. I actually like that one too. We like strawberry banana in the watermelon too. Yeah. Yeah. I've been on a while to go to. All right. Well Juju, thank you so much man. It's been awesome. And let us know when you when we're down to play some video games. Let's do it. I mean, thank you.
I appreciate that interview.
Juju was brought to you by our great friends over at three. You've heard us talk about three chai on the show. Who knows? We might even sample it a little bit during the live stream. But Three Chai is a wonderful, wonderful company and they make awesome products. Three Chai. They're the ones I'm telling you, start out with a half tummy until you realize how it hits you. Then you can go upgrade to a full gummy gummy and have that sort of thing.
Three chai makes Delta eight THC. What is Delta THC, you might ask? Well, it's a lot like Delta nine, which is what you might buy off the street as a street drug. But Delta THC just gave me a puzzle.
You never purchased street drugs in your life ever.
Delta nine THC is the stuff that you see that you smoke. That's the stuff that you probably grew up either smoking or hearing about. Smoking down to eight is very similar to Delta nine three. She actually invented it. It's a perfect hybrid of CBD and Delta nine. So it gives you a similar buzz and all the medicinal effects of Delta Nine without the laziness, the anxiety, the paranoia or the mental fogginess. Delta eight is a federally legal version of THC.
It's a perfect substitute for anyone that uses Delta Nine who wants the same great feelings without the negative side effects. Delta eight is going to have you feeling amazing. You're going to be functional, though. You can be clearheaded, you're not going to be lazy and you're not going to be paranoid. Not only do that, the gummies, they've also got the vapes, they've got the tinctures, they've got the oil. So you can make your own edibles if you want them.
3C isn't just the best in the Delta industry. They actually invented the industry. They're Delta is one hundred percent hemp derived.

Also a podcast or bust him with the boys with tell on it is Wil Compton. Will, I've got to say, we've got to start with Grit Week. Dude, wipe is our product. You use dude wipes.
I do not. But I've been seeing I've heard you guys. I actually listen, let's try that again.
You know, you're new to the podcast. Let's try it again. Hey, we got Wil Compton on Washington, the Washington football team's legend. He is one of the best free agent linebackers available in the game. And he's a podcast. Or Will, how much do you love dude wipes?
Dude wipes are incredible. I use them any time at the facility. I brought a box in last year for the boys. I love that everyone's wide open. Their ass didn't even need to take a shit. Everybody just wipe it. Yes, yes. So use code, take ten for ten percent off a dude products dotcom. Great answer. That was totally not even playing.
Oh I wait before I get a shit. That's how much I love these things.
Well we wanted to have you on Gret Week because we read your blog to the gritty undrafted NFL players and we thought it was awesome and we thought, what's the perfect guy to have on for Garet week is a guy who, you know, the guy who has to find a way to make the roster, not the, you know, first round draft, pick the gritty guys to fill out a roster, the guys that don't get the claim as some of the glory boys out there.
So that's right. You're the perfect guy. Let's start with actually, can we just kind of go through some parts on your blog? Because I thought the best part was you gave tips to guys like how can you be gritty and make an NFL team?
Yeah, let's start there. OK, shut the fuck up and lay low was the first step.
What what what is it like when you first go into a locker room in the NFL and you're thinking like, oh, I played Nebraska, I played some big time football and then bam, holy shit, this is a different, different world. Yeah.
I mean, you're nervous as shit like you're walking in a locker room with grown men. You're not in college anymore. No one really knows who the fuck you are. And no one like over the years, you see rookies come in, you see guys do well. You see guys do poorly in camp. And no one likes when rookies come in with some type of running their mouth at all, talking too much, saying, I always heard shout out Sean Bell.
He was like the first one to say it, don't speak unless spoken to. He would tell rookies out at the table, Jason Hatcher, who came to the who came to the football team. He would say he would tell rookie say don't speak unless spoken to. No one wants to hear a rookie speak, keep your head down and work. So that was kind of a first thing because for myself writing a blog, I have a podcast now.
Obviously, I'm on social media a lot I put in there. I love the fucking circlejerk as much as the next guy. Like, I love joking. I love talking a lot of shit. I love having a great time. But when you're a rookie going in, don't don't follow suit of all the social media you've been doing, don't follow suit of everything you see around. You don't follow a veteran. You've got to fucking put your head down, shut the fuck up, and you're there to make a football team to.
Where does the line get drawn? Because I know a lot of players come in, especially if they're a high pick. You were undrafted, but if they're a high pick, they come in, they've got some pride, right? They've got like almost like a small sense of entitlement sometimes, especially if they're a high first round pick. Where does that line get drawn between like, hey, you can stand up for yourself. You have to respect me as a human being.
And yeah, I'm a rookie. I'm going to shut up and do whatever the fuck you asked me to do and keep my mouth shut.
Yeah, I mean, it never gets it never really gets that disrespectful. It's kind of just assumed that you understand. And if you don't, as you guys know, like sitting around a table with all the boys, like somebody gets hurt, then jokes on and usually guys are able to take jokes.
Well, but if you're somebody who has like say, for instance, you grew up on a rookie for a rookie skit and you're like, what? You're signing bonus? And somebody is like a million dollars. Everybody just starts going crazy, like, oh, shit, he's a paid guy, blah, blah, blah.
Like, veterans don't don't care how much like a rookie comes in because that guy who's like a high round draft pick like you still got to prove yourself. And a lot of those guys understand that, like we actually just had AJ Brown on and he actually seemed like an awful rookie. By the way, Arthur, when you're a shitty rookie, but apparently he was like, no, I'm not going to take no shit. Like he's somebody that kind of was like went against the grain.
I want to say Dez Bryant might have been like that saying, I'm not going to carry pads around and do this and that. But it's just kind of like the fraternity of entering in the NFL last year when I was on the Saints this rookie year, I want to do a rookie skit. And if you suck at doing rookie skits and you don't have anything to perform or make fun of or do a presentation, they usually make you get up and sing.
And this this one rookie, he was actually an undrafted cat. It was tough. I watched the I just watched him basically crash and burn right there, I knew he was gone and he didn't want to get up to seeing kind of the whole prideful thing, like, you know, I'm not going to be disrespected, blah, blah, blah. And Demario Davis stood up and this is I was only on that stage for like ten days. And DiMauro Davis stood up and kind of went off about how close the Saints were to a Super Bowl and how it came down.
He started asking guys, hey, how many plays a way where we can go to the Super Bowl? Hey, how many obviously that one play that everybody knows about. And he's like, it's not about yourself.
Like you're in this room. You're in it. You're in a you're in an environment of a team like Cameron Jordan spoke up in the back and you kind of just felt that like, do the team police themselves? I'm sitting back. Listen to Demario, very well spoken, a lot of respect for Demario. And he's explaining to those rookie like, hey, you've got to get outside yourself. And I don't care what what the fuck people tell you to do.
Like you're a rookie. You're doing it because you're on for the sake of the team, not your own individual self. Like, yeah, you're going to get laughed at and people are going to want paper and throw it up at you and boo you off. And it's just part of it. Like you're getting like initiated. You're part of the you're part of the fraternity. Like everyone's taking you in outside of that, like it's just part of the game.
We're doing this for the for the team, not your individual self. So that was that's where I guess I would explain a line being drawn because that shit does happen. Guys get a little guys get a little defensive and prideful about having to do something as something as small as like singing the song.
But but when leadership stands up and speaks like somebody like the Mario Cam Jordan, you got all those guys kind of standing up and speaking to you. Everybody kind of just shut up and listen. What was your skit that you did?
I made fun of all the coaches. So I, I sit I would sit in the back room and I would kind of take mannerisms and stuff that my linebacker coach would do, like his one liners. And I can I would make him with a clicker, with a laser pointer on how we watch film. I would make fun. I made fun of the coordinator about how he presents film. And so I kind of just did a bunch of different coaches.
And then I had guys kind of reenact, like what they actually did. It's like if they had to demonstrate how I would respond to them, whether it's somebody like London Fletcher, compared to if somebody had the same answer, if they were a rookie and how I would shit on the rookie, but I'd be like, oh, that makes a lot of sense.
London that makes a lot of sense. And I also did it on the Titans. I made fun of Raible. I had a great skit with Graybeal.
Would you cut your dick off?
No, that was before the big cutting block of you guys know, right? Yeah, he's a he's a football guy. But on through, he was he was he was super fun to do him and his assistant stretch.
Stretch. We put together this whole highlight film of like, you know, Taylor got turned around by Jason Paul in our joint practice and bust Taylor's ass about, hey, how much a John how much we fucking pay this guy and just did a whole bit. But that's kind of like my stich making fun of mocking people.
So I always wondering, when you talk to NFL guys, the you know, they truly do just care about what you can do for the team on the field. As a guy who went in and, you know, was, you know, towards the end of the roster, was there a moment where some of the guys who've been there for a while looked at you and like, wait, this guy can actually help us in that, like, validates why you're there?
Yeah, those are that's probably one of the better feelings to get is like a rookie or going into my second year when I actually made the team, because the first year I just I was on practice squad.
But when those vets come up to you because you go into camp and like guys who have been there, like your room is already predetermined, not predetermined, but everybody kind of has a sense of like it when somebody gets drafted each year. And if it's a linebacker, you kind of understand that that might be you're not thinking of any on draft together. They bring in you already think your room is set. And then once you get there and you start witnessing like an underdog type guy showing out in the coach, talking about him in meetings and bringing them up, and then a vet comes over to you and talks about, hey, man, like, you can make this team like you have a shot and you don't know how stuff is going to work out.
You can't think about that. Don't think about are they going to keep it actually be are they going to keep this like just keep doing your thing, man, because I'm telling you, like, coach doesn't say this or guys don't think this way about it. But once you once you start to feel that from a veteran, that's when you feel good about where you're at. Because guys, it's like it's like you guys like if you guys already understood who you were going to be working with and then some person that you never even heard of or was on the list in front of you, they're kind of showing out.
And you're kind of I know I respect that. They're like, who is that? Like that should be our intern or somebody who works with us. And then you kind of validate them. It's probably like fucking waking up on Christmas morning and the reverse happens to, like, not to name names.
But I I've I've heard stories where guys have said, like, yeah, we would bring in, you know, our first round draft pick, our second round draft pick in almost instantly. The veterans on the team be like now this guy's. This isn't like he doesn't have it, like he doesn't, yeah, he doesn't have he's not going to be an NFL guy for long. And it's crazy to think that, like, just playing with a guy on the practice field, you could probably figure something out faster than a scout could do watching a guy for four years.
Yeah, for sure. I mean, obviously between players and like scouting department players think scouts suck. Scouts tell players to stick to playing. There's always like that division of like who can judge talent, shit like that. Because as a player like I fucking do this, blah, blah. Then you got scouts who judge you and people in the media who could try and place you in a box. But yeah, I always hate it for those high round guys who might not be showing tapping into their potential yet.
And guys are already trying to say, you know, use the word bust or something else just because it's like you just know it's a young mind still stepping into this grown man's game. So however he's being talked to with your arms around him or you're hyping him up or giving him confidence like it affects everybody mentally. I mean, it's it's not like anybody's Superman in the head, like everybody's susceptible to any kind of criticism. So it sucks to see when that happens.
One of the things that I saw that you listed here was you need to get to know the special teams coach if you want to make the team as an undrafted guy. Obviously, special teams coach controls a lot of the numbers because he can be like, I can I use this dude on kick return, I use this dude on punt return, et cetera, et cetera. And it kind of gives you a home. So in other words, you're saying like be a succah, be a little bit of a suck up to special teams.
Coach, what did you do?
Did you, like, bring Danny Smith extra packs of chewing gum? No, no. Get in with him.
How I got in with him. Well, I was always it took me a little bit to get to be a better special teams player because I didn't play it at Nebraska and I wasn't the best special teamer. That's probably why I was on practice squad my first year, because I was always solid at playing linebacker. Like, I get back up every spot with special teams out struggling for whatever reason. In my second year, Adam Hayward took me under his wing shout out the boy, Adam Hayward, and he's like, a minute.
He was like a minute special team or played like nine, ten years in the league. And he was brought to the Washington football team as a special teamer. And so Adam and I were super tight. He kind of took me under his wing. So the fact that I was around him and he would joke with me and tell the special teams coach like no coach like I got him. He's my guy, blah, blah, blah, this and that.
That helped me out. I wasn't necessarily a suck up. But, you know, you've got to you've got to have some good jokes in the old bell. You got to you have to play the game eight fifty. You know, you're going into these going into the world of football like you're trying to rub some elbows every now and then. You've got to learn how to play the game without seeming too much like a try hard.
Yeah. Me and Pep, we were just playing grab us for a while on the sidelines there because I knew that at the end of the day he was going to be the one who decided if I made the team or not. Yeah.
If you're if you're a fringe guy they're going to ask special teams. Coach, how is he special teams, more specifically the punt team, because that's the most trusted unit and that's the coach is going to kind of stand on the table for you. So you want to make sure he has good words to say, because if he shits on you and he's got a lot of respect in the coaching department, like, you know, you're going to be cut.
That was my problem, is I they asked, like, how is he had special teams? And they're like, well, he sucks. That's his entire job. He's not good at that. So it's tough for me.
So will the we always hear about guys, you know, hurt versus injured and trying to make a roster. I'm sure you were in that spot a lot where you were banged up and had to show up and work. What what was like the worst moment with the lowest moment when it comes to like, holy shit, I don't feel good, but I got to go in and I got to practice and I can't I can't give up reps from I'm trying to make this team, no doubt.
Yeah, that's a good question. And there's so much gray in that question because it's hard to judge how somebody is like feeling because stuff that we might play through some other guy can. I mean, whether or not we want to say he's a pussy or not, it's just it just is what it is. But my hardest moment and probably my most pivotal moment was my first year when I was obviously fighting to make any kind of part of the roster.
I was seventh on the depth chart out of seven linebackers. So there's a first team up to a second team of to a third team of two and then me.
And it was brutal. It was very humbling. And you just realize that, oh, these guys aren't Bo Pelini and they don't they're not as close as Bo makes it sound to where everyone knows who you are and they know I'm some heady, savvy football player, like no one gives a fuck.
And the first day of training camp, Keenan Robinson tourist pick the first day he was out the year before with a neck injury and the next year training camp was supposed to be like him in London. Fletcher and he turns his back. So immediately I go up to the threes and there was another undrafted of ahead of me named Jeremy Kimbro. And in the second week of training camp Kimbro strains his hamstring. And so I now get to move up with the TOS and mind you, all summer long, I'm breaking down the Redskins offense because I'm trying to figure out Shanahan, McVay, LeFleur, they were all on the offensive staff.
I'm trying to figure out every tendency that they have based on what they're going to try to get better at in practice during training camp, which is going to be some fundamental stuff. But I knew that the couple reps out again in practice. I had to be perfect at those reps. I had to like, vocalize like if I knew what the play was like, I was going to just fucking scream and yell it. And if it worked out, if I'm on hey, watch, play, pass, play, pass, play by the one that happens, you want coaches to know, like, you know, this guy kind of knows what the fuck he's doing out there.
And so then I got thrust into the twos and that week that I got thrust into twos was the week leading up to my first preseason game. And I actually tear my hamstring that week and I didn't know it at the time. That's I my hands. I just thought I had a really bad strain. I like woke up the next morning, I could barely walk. And we go out to walk through and like obviously all the Onorevoli, like all of us, we were we have to do the walk through like we have to be the service team.
And I kind of like weaseled my way into the back and didn't show face and kind of skip the walkthrough because I was trying to figure out how I can get through in practice, because in my mind, it's like this is my opportunity and I can't this is his fuck because my hamstring is fucked right now. So I went to a trainer that I trusted. I called him Dr. Evil Shout Out Dr. Evil. And I basically told him, I'm like, hey, do whatever we can to basically duct tape this thing to where I don't have a lot of flexion kicking up.
And because I have to practice, like the guy ahead of me is out with an injury, he's running stuff on the side like, you know, he's an undrafted cat and he chose to do rehab and stuff like this is my chance to show stuff. So he, like, keeps me up. I'm taking Toradol. I'm doing the shit that guys, you know, obviously you read that stuff on that. You don't necessarily that's not the healthiest route to go.
I'm not saying everybody needs to do that, but that's what I chose, because the most important thing at that time was making the Redskins the football team's football team.
And that day I go out there, fortunately, my mentor flies in that same day. He's like making sure it just works out that he flies in that day. He's just asking me. He's like, you know, what do you think? Am I truly like I have to try and go. And if I can't, I'll just get injured while I'm out there on the field in front of them, because right now they don't necessarily know what happened to me.
I kind of didn't say anything. And then I woke up and it's way worse than it was then. I thought it was.
I go out there and have two interceptions and a in that day was the most pivotal day for me personally, because Shanahan comes out to me, Coach Mike Shanahan is like, I almost had to start calling you like Mr. Hendershott interception. I get the nod to be the number two that week in preseason. I led the preseason that year in tackles like all of my opportunities came to make the practice squad that year. And that kind of set me up for the next year because I was on everybody's radar at that point.
But that was probably my toughest like injury. The whole big fucking wolf mentality thing comes from is like that's the moment that I feel like made my career in the NFL.
So then how long did you did you have a torn hamstring for the entire season?
Yeah. So the doctor like I mean, do you I mean, you might know being around the facilities and stuff like, you know, it's you don't get the best treatment. Washington football team doesn't have the best name in the training room. I was told that it was a strain and I didn't know until the next year from an outside source because you start learning like I start asking. That's like how do you take care of your body and this?
And then we're using another we're using other sources to go visit and get checked on and get body work done. And that's finding out from another pet. I found out he was like rubbing over this huge scar tissue. He's like, hey, do you do to your hamstring before? I was like, no, not that know. I mean, it feels really bad up here. Like it was. I like the bottom. My ass is like the worst part to have it.
And that's how I kind of found out I had a torn hamstring. But I was always told I had like a strain and I would just kind of do the whole ice and stem and, you know, all this up, the bullshit that they do in the training room nowadays anyway, at least it wasn't like a cancerous growth on your scalp.
They're like, oh, no, it's actually not your hamstring. We're just hey, that's great on that.
Oh, no doubt. Dude, I'm glad you're like a Washington fan because, you know, a lot of these thought that was pretty fun, but it's fun.
Oh, for sure. Fucked up. And, you know, I have a story where I was my first year free agency when I signed with the Titans before I went to the Titans. The Bills had just I think Preston Brown just signed with the Cincinnati Bengals. And so the Bills had a void at middle linebacker. The Bills call me within like probably ten minutes to fly. I'll do a physical. I actually found out that I had a a growth, a white mask, growth in a C spine MRI.
And the doc at the bills is actually saying, hey, we're not talking about football anymore. Like, you need to go get this checked out that the Redskins, we looked back. On stuff and watching a football team kind of missed by C spine MRI is because I was getting checked out because of some Stinger history. So that's why I had an MRI up there and the Redskins had missed seeing that white mass in my skull. So I had to I flew back the Washington football.
They took care of me like I know I have. There's some sketchy stories in there. But they also take they took very good care of me when I got in and they found out that fortunately it was it was just a cyst that I had that I had had for a while. But the neurosurgeon or neurologist or whatever that does the brain MRI readings, he thought it was cancerous at first. And that entire night after my bill's visit, because they were like, obviously we're not going to offer you because you have this growth that we have no idea what's going on in your brain right now that you need to get checked out.
Fortunately, it turned out it was just a cyst.
But dude, going off your story with a trillions like it's for it to happen in the same locker room is that's not like a ringing endorsement.
Like I'd rather have field surgery in the civil war.
And you push back on me when I said Alex Smith's personal physician cleared him. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. That is a good thing. Yeah, I know. I heard I listen, you guys that would be on it today. That was phenomenal.
I had a question about when you get offered to be on the practice squad or when you get told that they're going to try to put you on the practice squad. And at that point, you still have to clear waivers, right? You have to go through like any other team can sign you to their active roster. It's obviously not like directing, like getting cut, but you're you're probably not super pumped either. That's a practice squad. Right. Or did you have like did you think that's what was going to happen?
You're not you're not super pom because so going into the fourth game scouted came up to me. I was like, hey man, you actually you have a shot at making this team. Like if you just black out make a couple of plays on special teams. And I was thinking in my head at time, I was like, fuck, like I hate special teams.
And he was like, you got a shot. And unfortunately, like, I didn't make the team, but they call you that morning. You wake up, you understand, they come in. The grim reaper's coming for you. You walk in the facility. There's usually the Grim Reaper here. The Scouts are standing all over the rails and you're just waiting to be picked off if you can make it down. It's kind of like walking into a bunker.
You can make it to the back of the store without being talked to.
If you need help, if you make it down to the locker room without being asked to bring your iPad to the facility or to the office, you've made it.
So I walk, I get I get the phone call like, hey, man, we have good news and bad news. Like bad news is we're going to cut you off. Okay.
I don't know how it goes up from here, but but the good news is we don't have to strike the spot. Yeah, yeah.
But the good news is we want to bring you back on the practice squad if you clear waivers. Oh, my. All right. And so you're kind of in the shuttle with the boys like all of us are getting cut. You guys just sitting there like what they tell you, like, oh, I just got a phone call kind of text in your you know, the people that are in your circle, you're like, hey, I'm fucking I'm getting cut.
And I got to clear waivers for twenty four hours, but they say they want to bring me back on the P squad and it was nerve racking because there was nine of us on the shuttle and there's only eight guys who are on that. We're on the P squad at the time.
It turns out they bring us all, they're trying to sign us all and they realize they had nine guys and they ended up having to let one guy go after they told me he made the B squad. It was devastating.
You know, we're all in the room. Like once we cleared waivers, I guys were ecorp. Like, you might get picked up like your number three linebacker right now on PADF or whatever. And I'm on my own. Helio, let's go. Obviously, they'll get picked up because it doesn't matter that much.
And then so the next day on my OK, we can do P squad solid money to practice a few days a week. And here's hoping you don't get cut in a few weeks. And so we all get in the room to sign our paperwork and somebody comes in, they're like, hey, I don't know if you guys know this, but we can only have eight and there's nine of you sitting here.
They're like, my man, I won't say his name. They're like, my man, you've got to come with us.
Stands out, they show you how they survive. Whose job was it to count, though?
I feel like that's a pretty basic football operation, like JP was in the back of the room trying to figure out how many guys are there and how many get to hang out.
Like you should know it should be it should be a guys. Right. That's not that. Yeah.
We understood when we were all sitting there like, hey, we all think we're making progress. Well, but there's nine of us sitting in here. And so we're all kind of just sit and wait. But a fifty man, you know, it's it's that operation.
Well, it's probably also the number they probably thought one of you guys was going to get picked up. So it's like by someone else. But that's twenty four hours, right? Yeah, but that's twenty four hours.
The next day you're still in the hotel. They're going to send you shuttle to bring you over at that time you got to know like the ninth guy, the odd man out. You should have already let him know once the waivers happen.
Yeah. So now that this year's going to be a little bit different, you address this a little bit on your blog. But as an undrafted guy, if you only have. It looks like, what, eight or nine practices where you're where you're going full speed to show off and show what you have, no preseason games, it doesn't look like how are you how how is the evaluation process weighted towards like if you do it in a preseason game doesn't mean a whole lot more than if you're just super consistent in practice or there have been guys that, you know, absolutely sucked and practice, but then killed it during like game two and three.
And they end up making the squad.
Yeah, all of those situations like preseason games are definitely weighted for guys that are bubble guys, guys that aren't seen that are going to make the team for all those young guys that are trying to fight for a spot. Preseason games matter because you can ball out and practice and be terrible once you get under the lights in the game. Because when you're out there, coach isn't holding your hand. He's not the plays aren't scripted for you. You can't go back and watch days before and realize, oh, come and run, period.
Right now they're all going to be runs and maybe one play action pass in my set. So you can't guess, like you can't say, OK, we're in seven on seven, we're in team blitz period. We're in team third down like you're out there trying to think the game as the games go on with tempo and coaches want to see you guys execute that without a coach stopping the play, stopping anything. Oh, wait, he needs a fucking tired shoe.
You're doing it out there and trying to communicate with all the players and you're trying to prove that you can take from the practice field to the game. They're also the opposite happens that you brought up where there might be a sloppy in practice, where he kind of gets a bad rap out of the gate and he shows out in the game to where our eyes get open.
And coaches might be not at first, but advice to give a little more attention and see if that guy has something to in the practice, because he could have had say he could have gave a bad first impression or done shitty rookie skits and he's just got a tarnished name. But then he bowls out in that first preseason game. Everybody's like, oh, he did make a play a little bit. So all of those things happen.
That's why I hate that preseason isn't happening, like being older, like it's nice that preseason isn't happening. But for those guys who are trying to make it the way I kind of came in, it's going to be fucking hard, man.
Yeah. All right. So I had one last question. It is our body armor question. You drink body armor, right? Love body armor, drink body armor. Come check it out. You also buy on Amazon. Love the strawberry banana. Body armor is the best. So my last question was we this is actually kind of full circle. So our first I think it was actually the first week ever we talked to Bo Pollini, who you played for in Nebraska.
So what was the biggest like life lesson, great lesson that Bo instilled in you when you were playing for him in Nebraska?
Oh, that's easy. Do it. It's it's it's full. It's a school mantra. It's it's Creed. When he's when he's coaching and leading, it's focus on the process, compete every day. And it sounds stupid. It's cliche as fuck. But Bo would always say, like, I am not here to babysit you like you're either. Like we had a standard of going to class, like teachers would email him notes and you read them, he'd read them in the team meeting room and fuck.
And you can only imagine how he is in a team meeting room, but he'd be like Josh Mullock and Josh would kind of like pick his head up.
And he got to he'd say his name or he'd be Josh Molik. He'd be like elixir extend, extend the fuck up. And he'd talk about sleeping in classes and that he fucking chuck a water bottle and he would say, like, basically, I'm not here to babysit you guys. You're either all the time person or you're none of it. Like you're not just going to show up on Saturdays and play. You're going to go to class, you're going to practice, you're going to prepare like everything is all about the process.
Like if you live in a results oriented world, you're going to fail because you're going to be moved by external factors all the time. People are going to label you, you're going to buy into it because all you gave a shit about is what results are being said to you and what you're trying to attain and what you might miss out on. It's like it's all about the fucking process. And that was probably the biggest thing Bo instilled in myself.
And I know he carries it everywhere. He coaches it's focus on the process, compete every day. And it's funny because he coached Diane in San Francisco. I was listening to his interview with Diane, which is awesome. He is the best ever do it. But he had a story about beyond because guys would want to be swaggy or dance or do stuff in college. And not that Bo made guys do it his way or the highway, but he would kind of tell stories and bring up examples of somebody like Deon, who he got the coach in San Francisco.
It's a one time they were watching film. And this guy, he messed up on a play and the team was like, oh, don't worry about it.
I'll get it on Sunday. And he said, Deon, those words, not mine, I don't know. They actually put him against the wall or grabbed him by the shirt collar. But he said Deon told the man that, hey. You're either going to get it all the time or there's not going to be a Sunday, you're either going to put it on film all the fucking time or you're not going to be out there with us on Sunday.
And he would always say that lesson. And it's just always stuck with me because it just the world doesn't give a shit what's what's going on with you. Like I said in the blog, like you're the one who lives with your stress at night. Like, hopefully, fortunately, everybody gets to have a wife and they kind of take some stress with them. But even she doesn't know exactly what's going on at night when you're laying there thinking about what's coming the next day and the day ahead and the sun's going to rise the next day.
And you have a fucking choice to either bring that big, big energy or to shell up and let external external people and factors move your emotion, because when you rely on that, you're just going to feel like you got me.
We scroll on Twitter all the time. You read bad shit about yourself and you're an external shit's moving. You like you're going to feel shitty about yourself.
But if you know what you're doing and what you give me, me like medium average stick energy, which is huge. Dick is a great yeah. It's not great, but that's what I roll with. But I have to ask with that message. What did Bo we were texting last night. I happened to be just flipping through the channels and there was a game on the Big Ten Network. What did Bo say after the Big Ten championship when. Wisconsin one seventy to thirty one and hold on.
Wisconsin, Kurt Phillips, the starting quarterback for Wisconsin, his stat line, 70 points. Pfft. Guess is that one way when you were texting with Beau last night.
No, I thought that was well. Oh I have no idea. I did say but will before the show. OK, I thought you texted Beau know with Will OK on Nebraska. You played on Nebraska where they lost to him.
Thirty one. And what was the quarterback for Wisconsin state line.
I think he probably had a what was it like. Twenty one for twenty two. He was six for eight for seventy one yards and was put up seventy. How is that. Oh I'll tell you how you were a linebacker. Yeah. Eight rushing touchdowns. Five hundred and thirty nine yards. Jesus Christ.
A big guy with sex in me and he's like hey I'm like that game legitimately. Like I know Alec Ingold. He played at Wisconsin and he talks about the game like I try and trip Wisconsin. But truly, I never feel good about bringing up Wisconsin's name ever because I am so fucking destroyed about that performance. He's like at least Taylor Martinez. He had a solid run in the first quarter.
Yes. Yes. It doesn't maybe it doesn't make it hurt any less. Do what it both say after that, because that has to be like the BO that you don't see.
No, honestly, you didn't see that, Bo, because we. Yeah, you got we got our shit pushed in so bad that I don't think anybody understood what was happening to us at the time. So when we were in the locker room, it was. It was fucking sad, it was it was just quiet, like everyone was just quiet and it's just like. You know, there is not a lot to be said, I think everybody understood what was at stake.
We shit down our leg and that's a great example of knowing, like, that son is going to rise the next day and you have a fucking choice. Yes. To to put that game behind you or, you know, as everybody likes to say, let it define you.
But but, man, that was dark. That was that's the worst game I've ever been a part of. And as a middle linebacker, I think I told my that three running backs my dad over two hundred yards and everyone alludes to Melvin Gordon have for the next year, which thank God he broke the school record because it kind of took so much.
We don't talk about the three guys that had 220 on year from what actually happened the year before, which I was actually like, OK, the press had lost, but thank God we get to kind of be put on the shelf a little bit.
But man, that was the worst thing I've ever been apart. Gordon had two hundred and sixteen yards on nine carries such a ridiculous that line to see 70 points and eight pass attempts and then have Melvin Gordon nine catches, 216 yards.
Hey dude, I think I missed a big run like we fucking sucked. But I will say, Bowe, if you listen to this fucking podcast, I would tell you to your face now, dude, that we didn't adjust and we only call one call in that person.
And no know now that I'm older and understand the game a little more, I'm just thinking, why the fuck didn't we send pressure off the edge away from of a speed sweep guy? Like we didn't adjust that game. So we take it as a team.
Dude, I love you, though. I miss you. All right. Thank you. Well, this has been awesome. Yeah. Bustle with the boys will cop. And he was a legend of the I think I have you guys ranked as the number for our words team of the last thirty years, the the nine and seven 2015 Redskins. That was the. You like that year, right.
Yeah. That was a fun year there that you like. That game is when I actually got my first start that year to finish the rest of season. So big fan of that game.
There you go. I would say that it was more you coming in.
That's what turned the tide and not the contact.
Sports reporter with the AP, did you were you even aware or even aware of the boy back? Back in my football days? Yeah. I remember watching you play, and I was like, this guy is actually good. Like, I have no idea where he came from. You know, every time you get an undrafted free agent from a big school, like a traditional power school, you think you think in the back of your head like this could work.
I said this was a tradition, not a modern power school, but like early 90's power school, you think like, oh, this guy's got something in the tank. So I remember watching you play a little undersized, a little gritty. So, yeah, that was a magical season.
And you believe him? No, because he said that you he was like, damn, this guy's good.
Hey, no, no, no. We're on the same team, boys. Yeah, yeah. True. And we love having you on the team. Hopefully we'll see you soon, man. Oh.
Do you want to make an announcement real quick? Get us some headlines here. Are you are you going to play this? You're going to opt out.
No, I'm playing this year, OK? I respect that. I respect anybody who wants to opt out. But, you know, I'm trying to get it. I'm trying to get it for another one.
Well, we just we'll frame it. We'll do a press release. We'll have more set up a press release. Will Compton officially opting in while respecting players who choose? Yeah. Yeah, right. Right. Yeah, I am officially opting in to the twenty twenty season.
Yes, my door is open, my phone's open and everybody knows where to find me. Get your name going in the circle. We got you. Yes. I appreciate you guys. See you man. Thanks. We'll see you fellas.
We'll Compton was brought to you by Shady. Ray's shady raids are high quality shades for far less than the expensive brands. They have the best warranty in the sunglasses industry. They will give you a replacement if they're lost, if they're broken and they have a lifetime craftsmanship warranty. Plus ten meals get donated to fight hunger in America with every single order. I don't know about you guys, but I've seen the shady res commercials on TV recently. There's something cool about seeing a company that we've been advertising with for the last year, year and a half, seeing them on TV and being like, I know those guys, they make great products and the sunglasses look just as great in real life as they do in those TV commercials.
Summer is in full swing. There's no time to waste. Hook yourself up with a great pair of sunglasses. They have the exclusive sunglasses part of my take. They're called shady rays and they have the strongest warranty in all of eyewear. This is actually really great. What they do, they will replace your shades. If you lose them, if you break your sunglasses for any reason, it doesn't matter what happens. If you drop them in the ocean, you lose them in a lake, anything.
They fall off a jet ski. When you're trying to drive around and impress your cousin Dale, they will send you a new pair of sunglasses. They're not going to ask any questions about it. Shady raises great. It is the season for losing and breaking sunglasses. But don't worry. If you've got shady rays and even with that strong of a warranty, they still manage to make quality, that's just as good as any expensive pair that you'll ever wear.
They've got polarized lenses. They're perfectly clear. And most qadi rays are 48 bucks. That's right. Forty eight bucks. They're going to hook you up. Not only can you get a pair of sunglasses, a pair of qadi rays for 48 bucks, but they will also toss in a second pair. That's right. They're doing 50 percent off two or more pairs at Shady Razr dotcom. It's buy one, get one free, get two pairs for forty eight bucks when you use promo code PMT 50, promo code PMG 50, you get free returns, free exchanges.
Either love the qadi raise or they're going to pay to ship them back. That's it. Go to shady res dotcom use promo code empty five zero.
OK, before we get you guys on and finish up the show, let's go over Billi sheet real quick.
So if you're a reminder, Billy has been tasked with coming up with the hottest things of the day and giving it to us before the show, we have UFOs real, who everyone knows are real.
This is so stupid. I'm sick. I'm sick of the alien shit. Just tell us that we know that the aliens exist.
Tom proved it. Tom DeLong from Blakeway to prove this a year ago. And so this is old news by this point.
Aliens came. We didn't care. You tried news. Yeah, we tried to get us interested in the fact that aliens have invaded in the past and that we're not alone in the universe. But honestly, it's boring.
We exist. They exist. We know that you said demon sperm. Billy then said parenthesis.
Just say that and don't say anything else I think would be a sick name for the Washington football team team in the Washington team. And that's a that's a really shitty goth like band name.
Yeah, demon sperm. Screw the yellers.
Wow. Hot topic is stock to these day.
That's my last chance. Use back Sports Illustrated supplements Pilley we've Tashi was coming up with a PMT supplement. What do you got.
So Sports Illustrated's make their own supplements. Honestly the supplements kind of suck really.
They're basically just kind of like Kool-Aid with caffeine for their pre workout.
And just like, OK, I love, by the way, that the sports history is doing supplements the entire like Internet rosett because like Sports Illustrated's getting into something, something, a game. And then Billy takes the ZAGG on it and he's like, listen, you have every right to make something. It's just don't make shitty ones.
Yeah, no. That's the first thing that occurred to Billy was I want to see what is actually in these things. So it's beta alanine and caffeine in their pre workout, right.
Well, there's not that much bad alanine and they're all proprietary blends, OK? They don't actually have to put the amount, they say.
So what's in our supplement? So if we were to make a part of my take mass gainer, I think we should make a bacon blast whey protein for first of all, you you need to work on the branding.
I like that we're doing a mass gainer, but if it's stool, it should absolutely be like Zoom's should be the of it Zamansky Numax and unlock the power of Harambee. Oh.
So it would just be like bacon bits, whey protein, chocolate and creating an Austrian and be an awesome maskin.
Just toss that in there like, like listen it's just pretty much like bacon and chocolate and just a little bit of steroids, maybe a little Toradol and it's fine. Totally fine. OK, good Billy.
Then we got a pre workout OK. And we call it not a drug. I pre workout, you know, just be beta alanine, Tauren Sildenafil and then DMA is the worse well the worst spin off of Breaking Bad.
You also had you also had nitrous oxide, right. Yeah. Nitrous oxide booster. And what were the other things in there.
Oh no, it's the nitrous oxide booster and sildenafil is for a pump. It just gets your vein.
But what about the Viagra and yeah, those sildenafil is the active ingredient, Viagra, but it's sick for pump. OK, yeah. I'm going to stop you Billy.
I like where we're at with a mass gainer. I'm on board with that. Sounds delicious. I like where your head's at with part of my take. Viagra. Yeah. That's a good well it's a free workout we know. Yeah. But people just get it.
Yeah they, they put it in their own kitchen cabinet and they say like this is my pre workout but it's actually just vile. It's disguised faggot.
Right. Hard in my take. Yes. I like that. Well, all right. So and then the bar stool recovery bar. Yeah.
It's just like a protein brownie with Delta eight THC CBD and I like this.
So we take so we take steroids, meth, Viagra and weed. Yes.
OK, good job Jack. What do we do to recover from the heart attack.
The Delta APHC we contact three chibi like we want to make a protein brownie some you just to go to sleep.
We should, we should actually make a stool softener. I like this sauce off. I like this. Good job, Billy. All right. You also had bizarre scams. Chinese students in Australia kidnapping them. Yeah, basically, they're like, you have to pay this fines, so kidnap yourself and pretend that actually happened. When I was in Wisconsin, her name was Audrey Seiler. She kidnapped herself. She's when it went in the woods for like two days, you know, they found her.
You know, she came out and then they're like, yeah, why did you go to Home Depot and buy a bunch of rope right before you disappeared?
Interesting. So did you get money, ransom money? No, I think she just wanted attention. I think she dropped out after that.
OK, it's kind of cool. Yeah, it's kind of cool. I mean, if you're if you're a product of the Chinese one child policy, I imagine that that shoots your value way up in the eyes of your parents, right?
Yeah, true. Because if you got two kids and your parents are like, fuck it, I can get rid of that one.
I got a back up in the shed and now the last one was just Ellen sucks. OK, sure. Oh, wait. Oh, Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson joined Shark Week again. We're out on Shark Week.
Yeah, we're on Shark Week because it's because they don't kill anyone.
Yeah. OK, Lahm, I want death. OK, more like Shark Week. Yes, it's a site. Violence from the sharks.
Yeah, yes, yeah, yeah, yeah. Do Stark Week and it's just shark decapitations.
It's something like to get the juices flowing. All right.
Hey guys on ChiX and then we will see everyone at noon on Wednesday today for today for our stream.
And if you're tuning in afternoon, just tune in now because we're probably still alive.
Yeah, I could be dying from heat exhaustion under 24 over under ten miles from Philly.
He's going to get over because he's got I know Billy. He's going to burn himself out. He's going to do like twelve miles in the first two and a half hours. And he's gonna be like, do I have to keep going?
Yeah. The calculation is going to be when is Billy bitching at us, like, untenable? And we're just like, you know what, fucking Billy, will you just quit going to take a fall out?
Actually, very funny. He took that away from them. It's I think I put a Neymar.
I got an update from the bread bread boy we'll call.
Oh yeah, it's me again. So in the short time that I texted you and up until now things have become worse, I was shocked. You actually read my issue and my boyfriend, let's just call him Parker found out through a friend who listens to your show and is now convinced that it's normal because you all thought it was awesome. So thanks for that. Yep. I don't know how these things are supposed to be, but I'm just going to tell you all that everything I'm just going to tell you all everything, because the bread really isn't even the worst thing.
So like I said, eat bread with literally everything. It's not like a freaking utensil to him.
He scoops super that cereal. Obviously, he uses four slices when making a sandwich to on top two in the bottom. I can't wrap my brain around this. My friends all think it's super gross, especially when we go out to a restaurant and he has to get a couple of bread baskets for himself.
I, I'm fine with that. For the record, like getting the hot bread delivered to your table, getting a restock of that. Yeah, as long as you tip. Well, I think that's an alpha move.
He isn't that overweight, but what worries me is if his metabolism slows down, he's going to gain a ton of weight. He doesn't work out when he isn't working. He mostly plays video games or watches movies. I love parkour. He's super funny and is very smart, but I feel like he's going way too far with the fucking bread. I'm not scared that he hears us because he already knows how I feel and he just shrugged it off always with something like you're overreacting.
It's just bread or so what I fucking love bread. What are you going to do, break up with me? I mean, seriously, my overreacting, I'm officially giving you our final say as to who wins help.
I don't know what to do. I really don't like it sounds. If you didn't have a problem with the bread, then there's no problem. You're cool with it then it's not an issue.
But if it's reaching the point where you're embarrassed that you're basically dating a duck in a park, then yeah, then you need to have a conversation. If you can't adapt, then it's time to cut.
I think you just need to just suck it up. This there's a lot of bad things in the world. Eating too much bread is not one of them.
What I have a solution for, yeah. What she's got to do is she's got to take laxatives and just keep poisoning them with laxatives. And so shitting himself all the time, they'd be like, oh, maybe he's become allergic to gluten gluten free.
Then you convinced him he's gluten free.
Oh OK. That's a good one. By the way, I saw someone treating being like I can't believe you guys thought that was real. I just want to make a PSA real quick. This goes for the Waffle House guy to which I've heard maybe not real. I don't give a fuck. OK, we are. What? What, what? You think it's good? We're just going to get more fake. That's fine. I don't give a fuck.
If it sounds remotely real, I'm going to read it. It's like wrestling. Just shut up and let me have a good time. Don't be the guy on the internet was like fake, fake, fake. Shut up. Yeah.
You don't need to Snopes check guys on Chuck's question. Correct.
And this girl fall back up. Yeah. And without anything funny, just being like, no, this is serious. Like what the fuck do I do.
It's a great tale. And it goes on for weeks and weeks and weeks and has plot twists and everything. I'm just watching, you know, Real Housewives. I don't care.
It's fake. I think this girl sounds awesome. The fact that she's just dealing with us. Yeah. She realizes it's strange at the it becomes a problem when you forget how weird it is.
Hey, party boys, especially you honk and cat daddy. I've recently been getting into arguments with my boyfriend because he has really been making me feel guilty about going out with my girlfriends again.
Last night, he told me that he refused to get sick because I want to go out and get wasted at a bar. Now he does everything without me.
He cooks dinner and takes it outside while going for a long walk to avoid eating with me. He sleeps on the rug in our room because he apparently can't be in the same bed as me. I told him countless times that I have other people I want to see. Is he being a paranoid little bitch or do I need to understand? Is concerned? How do I go about what's his concern?
Getting sick? Oh, she's going and hitting the bars with her Gousse.
Oh, coronavirus. Got it. He doesn't want to get sick. I just. You're kind of being the jerk here. Yeah. Just get an antibody test. Yeah, you're so you're going out all the time and then you're like, can you believe my bitch boy boyfriend like doesn't want to get coronavirus.
So but her complaint is that he's hanging out around, he's sleeping on the bed or on the floor next to the bed.
Yeah. He's basically staying away from her. Yeah. But if you're going to try to not get coronavirus you want to put a little bit something more than like two feet. Yeah I do. Not even doing a good job.
Yeah. I'd say you probably should have a talking to him. Maybe I won't do this all the time. No, I don't think he's being the bitch here.
We also ask for suggestions for staying up for 24 hours and this person said for 24 hour a day, have Kate come on the stream and show you how to make Ranger dip and use hot sauce under the eyes to keep you awake?
Seems like that. Is it like bees? And we might want to bring people said that he's in his crochets for sure. Let's get some bees. Hmm.
Hey, big cat in future Ozbek star. Hank Bee. Oh, yeah. Congrats, Hank. Thanks. I don't know what what for, but you're going to be on a ship next to where you are.
I don't think so. I think my girlfriend is trying to get on restrengthening about it.
I feel like that's. I think you are. They can't say no. Can you invite me? Yeah. How how mad would you be if you got on? She didn't invite you.
Not that. I mean, I don't even like the show that well. Anyway, my boyfriend and I recently moved into a one bedroom apartment, our first place together. Every time I go poop, I turn on the shower so he cannot hear me. Dude, Bart, dude bomb. He recently asked me when, why I shower in the middle of the day and I have told him that is my midday sanitation to avoid covid the other day I came back from running errands and he was in the shower around noon saying he was joining the midday sanitation idea to I tell him I'm not shouting or do I keep it a secret?
No. What happens when we have a covid is a thing of the past. And I I'm still pooping with the shower on what other alternatives do to have me do it.
But you could do bodily dude Bomont. He'll never know. He walks in right after you and it smells like the dude bomb is is the thing that dude products are selling where you put it in the toilet and it neutralizes all the smells. Yeah. Take ten. I think what the boys start doing your hair. The boyfriend probably just saw like oh my girlfriend takes a shower every day around noon. I'm going to do that too so I can crank one out.
Yeah. He's jerking off. He's jerking off.
Hmm. How do I get my boyfriend to suck my toes.
Ask him. Hey, peanut butter. Yep. Good call. There it is. Call Billy.
How do I get my boyfriend to stop making that slurping noise when he's blowing me? I've asked him before because it grosses me out, but he must keep forgetting in the moment. I don't want to interrupt and kill the mood. Also, you guys should try caffeine, caffeine to stay up.
Yeah. OK, how do I get my boyfriend to stop blowing me know making that slurping noise.
Oh OK. It's the noise that's I suggest just getting your peanut butter, peanut butter smear peanut butter on your penis.
I mean it's a weird, weird edition of Smooth.
Not everyone in the past month or so, my boyfriend has developed a weird habit of licking me all the time. We will hug and as he pulls away, he will lick the side of my face. I reached to hold his hand and he will grab my hand and lick it. I've told him to stop and I don't like it, but I think he's doing it without even realizing it. I get that quarantine is hard, but any advice on how to get this weird habit to stop?
I'm tired of feeling like a lollipop and not in the hallway.
Not peanut butter. No, that will be worse, Billy. Yeah, I just feel like there's a mental pretzel. Do you feel like weight or weight?
We got to save you the butter. Is he allergic to peanut butter? How about no, because then peanut butter. Well, have a poisonous peanut butter.
Super bitter peanut butter.
Oh, spicy peanut butter. All right. Well, let's let's end there and. Or do you have one more. I got one more. OK, let's keep it weird. Hey, sexy cat. Pfft. Frat boy hunk Hank and Big Dick Billy. My boyfriend has started to call me milkmaid any time he wants to have sex. He says in a child voice. He wants his milk and he says it until we do it.
That's it. Then even ask a question. They just fuck. Yes, I like you too.
A nice guy. I milk.
You see, there was one of those obviously fake retied things going around today where this girl was like, I dated nineteen year old guy and he gets upset at me because when we fool around my nipples don't lactate.
And he thought the guy thinks that that's when girls come and they just, you know, keep going with it.
Keep going. All right. That's it. Yeah. Very good company. Yeah. You could be called a lot worse. It's a great nickname. All right. We'll see everyone on. A stream, ideally, you want to talk to people, give them a little you've done a terrible job with this, by the way. You were supposed to give a speech at the end of every show closing thoughts. Please do it. Love you guys.
We'll all see. There's aliens, of course, in the government.
But I don't think the aliens come from outer space. I actually think that they come from within the center of the earth because think about it.
What's more likely people or beings traveling from thousands of millions of miles away in different universes to a place with life or a place with life having more life just deeper underground?
Just think about it. There's two sources of heat and energy coming to Earth. It comes from the center of the earth and the sun.
We live on the surface of the earth.
So yet energy from the sun. And that's how photosynthesis works. But there are life forms down in the deepest parts of the ocean that get energy from the center of the earth, geothermal energy.
So it's very plausible that there are beings at the center of the earth that are coming to the surface and those are actually the aliens.
What about the UFO as they fly? Where do they come from? They come from the center of the earth, where there's where there's a lot of air.
They come. Yeah, they just know how to travel through the water. Like people say UFO come. Bermuda Triangle Center. Jason, to any. Kate. It's pardon my take presented by barstool sports.
