and good morning, everybody.
I'm still trying to get used to this intro.
I'm gonna try to talk over this a little bit here, but we're back after are very brief.
23 a half hour break, folks.
Sorry if you were listening yesterday, we went to commercial break and unfortunately, ah, we had some hiccups with our technology, and, uh, we never came back.
So if you've been sitting there for 23 a half hours Thank you.
I appreciate the dedication and the passion you have for our show.
And ah, we apologize for the for the hiccup.
You know, things happen, but we're back.
We're gonna be here for the full hour and 1/2 assuming the apocalypse does not happen and our Internet does not shut down.
And R O B s does not shut down.
But we will be here.
And I do want to bring in.
That's why you You hear him in the background? That's right.
Mr Michael Bait. Might.
How are we doing today? You know, I'm doing well.
Very refreshed after the 23 a half hour break.
I gotta be honest with you. It was pretty good.
You know, I got a chance to really, really chill out. Really? Relax.
And now we're back from break.
Now Getting aside, folks.
It is good to be back here on the airwaves this morning.
And, uh, you know, we've got on action packed show that we kind of had in store for you yesterday, but we're bringing it to you today, and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
So without further ado, my friend Ah, let's let's let's let's do this.
Well, the good thing is that since we already planned the show yesterday, technically we had less work to do.
But I realized a few hours later in the afternoon that we kind of just left everyone hanging and, like, you know, we went to commercial break.
We had some issues, not issues, but just, you know, technical.
Ah, the set up wasn't quite correct.
Eso we did have some audio issues, but eventually the the stream dropped and, you know, it became too much of a hassle.
So we figured we'd ah, we'd start fresh again today.
So that brief break that I mentioned that was supposed to be five minutes did last 23 a half hours.
But hey, we're back and we're gonna pick up where we left off yesterday.
Son were joining us at 9 a.m.
We're gonna talk some Ah, great greatest goalscoring seasons in NHL history.
We had a discussion about that last week and we're gonna kind of get me get more into that today.
And of course, Ah, have some fun with that.
And hoping, hoping we're gonna have Mr Bryant Snow on here at 9 30 to talk some MBA and, of course, the return of Snowman in the morning.
Coming up in a couple weeks, So got a lot to do.
Mike got a lot to do, but I was supposed to be dropped.
But oh, all right at that time waiting for the next shoe to drop way do we've got a lot to do and on young a good amount of time to do it.
And we've got a little bit more of an extended show year on FBC Radio Live and we hope that you enjoy that.
Ian and I have a tendency to ramble and go off target.
And this allows us to give you the content that you really need.
So for that five minutes, we will deliver blistering great content and for the next time around pretty much makes away with references you give your You're setting the bar a little too high for us.
I'd prefer to keep it a little bit low.
It's less likely we disappoint people.
We're gonna have pretty good content.
Come on, don't sell yourself short.
As I love to say, one of my favorite lines and movies, you're a tremendous slouch.
Yeah, well, anything.
I'm over using that now, I think.
No, no, no, you can.
Don't be one of my locked on listeners that I'm over using that.
I I used it both on Ah, a couple of my guests and I use it here often, so I don't know, folks.
A maior using this line.
I don't think it can be overused.
I mean, you can always you can always just ah, unexpected on it unexpectedly taken away for a while and then and then find out if the fans air yearning for it.
Are they are they Wait a minute.
I haven't heard that noise in a wire or that quote in a while.
So so maybe play with him a little bit here, you know, maybe maybe used Do step back a little bit.
Maybe you're telling me to play with the audience.
Are you crazy? Test? That's the wrong.
Whoa! I e want the Robert Palmer will.
I wanted the Cramer.
Whoa! So clearly it's early in the morning.
I haven't got my wits.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Um, thank you, Mr Steinbrenner.
Yeah, well, I mean, if if you remember, you remember a classic line of of Mike's back in the day and, you know, inspired a drinking game between the two of us.
So did you know whatever, uh, nail a nail on the head? You hit the nail on the head, You know that that was the thing that you haven't seven a while.
I'm gonna say I'm just gonna throw it out there.
It's It's been Ah, you kind of lost that.
But my core, it's still it's still ruminating in the title role index, my friend, I've tried to take that out of my daily lexicon and The reason why I have done that is simply because it just got sickening and a lot of people started to develop really bad drinking habits as a result of that drinking game.
Every time I said it, I was contributing to public drunkenness.
I can't do that.
I can't be a part of that.
I have talked about halfway through the show, you know? Absolutely.
I mean, every time we keep pouring, you know, the bourbon just keeps flowing.
You know, we do a morning show.
So, you know, that was that was even more so.
You know, at least when we were doing the, um, the NFL pre game, it was it was five oclock somewhere.
You know, warning.
Here, it's It's difficulty.
It's You know, all due respect to our, you know, our listeners overseas and what not that are listening in different time zones here in the United States.
No one was out of the morning yet, so that was really a problem for the month of the majority of us.
This also came at a time to before we were on camera.
So, you know, well, before I was on camera, people still aren't convinced that you actually exist.
But one of these days, you know, I will prove it to the world.
You know, I got I got actually a ah, stony up stony.
Jesus, it wait when you hear what I was gonna say, you're going to say Wow.
What the hell is he doing? A Tony Stark.
You see how we just, like, mashed the two words together and created the word step? Why didn't create the word stony, but I need some more coffee.
Let's just put it that way.
I've been up since 50 clock this morning.
The original about amount of caffeine that I had is starting to wear off.
And, uh, you know, during the first commercial break, I might have to run to go get some more caffeine in me.
So I stopped stopped stumbling on my words.
But anyways, I have a Tony Stark like, ah laboratory in my garage where I basically create, um, Mike's, you know, just Mike's.
You know, if we run out of Mike's, if you know Mike's tired one day, I'll just create a new mike and you know, he's Ah, it's like pulling a string.
You got a few few sayings like you hit the nail on the head and and your tremendous slouch And, uh, yes, we're outside Turned me on.
You know, there's, like, six things that you get.
You can you can download updates.
And it's kind of like one of those Ah, premium freemium games.
You know, you get the original, you get the Mike doll.
Now you're Dolph.
No, wait a minute.
Figure action figure Action figure. Sorry.
Um, you're in action figure.
I'm not I'm not going to sell your short here.
I mean, you are short, but I don't want to sell you short.
Ah, action figure.
Then you just, you know, find a microphone somewhere and ah, start talking.
So, uh, folks, he does exist.
I'm not trying to ah, create some conspiracy theory.
Who is? Mike debate dot com? I I don't know.
You know, just saying that website does not exist yet.
Yes, And the other than the knowledge that Ian has compiled here to create these multiple mikes, folks, the most useless stockpile in right now.
I assure you, my friends, so you know, But But God bless him because without it I wouldn't be here.
I wouldn't exist.
I exist in a microcosm.
So, you know, just always remember that I am a collection of some of the some of the some of the worst.
The mental capacity has no law for folks.
You remember that, Ah, family guy episode where they're kind of, you know, playing off the $1,000,000.
It's just like a little clip, but it's like playing off the $1,000,000 Man.
It's like we have the technology.
We can rebuild them, and then they just kind of cheap out.
So Peter's like, running with, like a you know, Ah ah ah, plunger as a leg and like, ah, water bucket as like a that's that's kind of the image I'm getting in my head right now, But But no, no.
This is why you have to get on camera because you have to disprove the rumors that the folks out there that are emailing me every day.
I mean, they're just a long, less mike.
You don't even understand how many people email me every day asking.
Is Mike Rio? I mean subject.
I could type that into my search bucks, and it would just be 1000 emails.
Does Mike exist? I mean, look, I got to tell him.
Yeah, you know what? Based on that information, I don't know.
I might just keep this going for a little while.
This is pretty good.
First of all, the emails annoy the hell out of, you know, like that.
I think that's funny.
Second of all, it kind of adds to the mystique, I think a little bit like, you know, like the great and powerful laws.
Yeah, You turn on the camera and I'm just gonna be, like, this giant levitating floating head.
You know, with these these these these balls of fire that just puff out every now and then, you know? So yeah, I think so.
Of course you know, my internet connection.
Nobody would be able to see it anyway, so it call comes back.
It's all relative.
It's all part of the Rhode Island experience.
Onda misery I have to live with every day not just getting folks Now I love my home state.
Basically turn into, like, a grainy photo of, like, Bigfoot or whatever.
Like I think that's Mike, I can kind of make up the face.
I think that's hair I can't tell.
You know, um, you know, one of the good things that did come out of that very brief episode that we had on Monday Ah, was the, ah, determination, I guess this week to to put together our top 10 eighties love ballots.
And it was it was all kind of based off the Richard Marx comments, remarks, if you will, um, from yesterday or whatever on Twitter.
And we were kind of joking about that, but I think Mike and I want to get your opinion on this.
I think this will be a good thing for Friday.
If that works for you, I think it'll give us time to, um I'm going on.
Ah, eighties, love ballot binge over the next several days or whatever, you would have stay Tuesday.
Yeah, I still gotta change my calendar.
Tuesday, Wednesday, 33 8th Next three days, I'm going to just go on an absolute listening danger.
We're gonna put together pretty good, lest they think Oh, I think so.
This is This is right in my wheelhouse, folks, Everybody knows from listening to me from looking at my social media feed.
Yeah, I'm pretty much stuck in the eighties and nineties.
So based on that, this definitely, You know, it's right in the wheel house.
And a lot of this is stuff that I grew up with when I was just a wee young lad and, um, you know, growing, you know, growing into the eighties love ballads.
I think there's a new appreciation for them now, so not to choose from.
You know, I was looking at the criteria, and I mean, do we include hair metal? Is this just, you know, these songs? Is it just ballads? Is it? You know, because if you're looking at ballots than eighties hair, metal is a big, big part of that as well.
So you know, I'm looking at it, but I think we should keep it wide open, you know, in an all encompassing Well, that's exactly it, because that's what the eighties are.
And I think eventually, you know, I've had this these discussions on Twitter before, and I have a very wide range of musical tastes.
I spent a significant amount of my lifetime delivering food and spending time in my car, so you tend to listen to a lot of music.
And certainly sometimes you listen to things that you would have never thought you'd listen to 5 10 years prior to that.
But, um, the reason I ultimately land on the eighties is is I feel, personally that it has theme, most variety amongst the widest range of john genres.
So, like you mentioned, I mean, we say eighties.
Look, that woke.
What is it? Is it your traditional Is that your eighties pop balances that your you know, your Steve Winwood's is that you know what I mean? Things of that nature, you know, maybe some cute Huey Lewis.
Maybe there's some more.
I mean, theoretically, we could have Debbie Gibson and Motley Crew in the same top 10 list.
Think about that first.
I mean, come on, this is like, this is really, really good, you know? So, you know Yeah, If you love eighties love ballads if you're a yacht rock fan, if you just want to tune in just the last at the musical prowess or lack thereof of me and my good friend here Friday is definitely the day to do it I think we'll have a blast.
I I and I can't imagine that there.
I can't guarantee there won't be some sort of Ah ah.
Attempt to recreate some of these dogs just saying, you know, So Oh, yeah, that will be thinking about this.
We really should put out a disclaimer on social media that if you're if you're allergic to bad singing, you mean may not want to tune in live because we are coming to most people during breakfast time.
You know, we don't want to be responsible for any nausea that happens while you're eating.
That's Ah, that is possible.
Well, it's like those old cartoon shows that I've been like a You know, if you watch this, you could get a seizure.
Maybe we could just repurpose that and be like, You know, maybe that's that's the result that you listen and you just have a seizure, and that's it makes us desire for hearing loss.
Folks avoid avoid ice picks and and sharp objects because you might have the impulse to to stick them in your years.
Once you start listening to us, you may enjoy it.
Yeah, I think that's possible.
People might enjoy it.
Maybe you've become a singing sensation.
I mean, who knows? It could be, you know, maybe will be The new American Idol's will be the springboard for for people.
Maybe we can have.
Ah, you could have some of our colleagues at fbc come on and sing the the eighties love ballots for part of the top 10.
Well, I don't think we get anybody to do that. I don't That we can't.
We could not possibly do that to any one of our fine colleagues.
Know the to good people.
With you were the only We're the only slouches that can handle this.
So you know what we'll do.
It will take one for the team.
Broke? Oh, yeah, of course.
We wouldn't want to bring anyone down with our ship. No.
We're going to sink together because, you know, sailing straight into the iceberg, my friend.
Yeah, sadly, that that that is true.
And, you know, I actually thought about naming the show that, like, right into the ice Berg, you know, toe kind of.
But you know Hey, you know, to our credit, you know that the show has has some legs.
So you know, you we don't want to Ah, you know, way Don't want to jinx it, but that doesn't That doesn't ah, change the fact that we're not ordinary people.

You know, the you know, it's sports store just like a like a ****s or a sports authority or anything like that.
Um, and I used to have fun going on the announcements, announcing like a that We're closing in 15 minutes, which is basically a polite way of saying, Hey, hurry up.
Get the, you know, out We're closing.
We want to go home.
It was just a plate with you All don't have to go home, but you can't stay here exactly, so Ah, but I used to have a lot of fun with that.
And, um, I also, uh I don't know if this inappropriate story to tell, but, uh, we used to Ah, mutual friend of ours work together at the store.
There's a long, long time ago.
This is this was back when the Patriots were first winning Super Bowls.
Um, you know? Yeah.
Well, every year we would have the T shirt and hat party, you know, occurring during February.
So it was kind of a tradition at the store, but no, we used to Ah, 20 years later, nothing's really changed.
It's really the same exact thing.
And you know, our maturity levels, the two of us.
Ah, myself in army.
That's that's a good point.
I was going to say maybe maybe it's regressive, not necessarily stayed the same, but we used to ah page each other to Ah, inappropriate.
I don't want to say some things we used to say.
I can't believe we actually got away with it. But we did.
Ah, it was funny.
And ah, I don't know.
I guess it That was the beginning of my love for talking on microphones, I guess and speak through speakers.
Remind me to thank a good mutual buddy for that.
I really appreciate it.
All kidding aside, You know what? Because of it.
We have a show in the morning.
And you know what? That's that's not bad, Okay? And you know what? Every so often, someone does need help with Kneepads.
And our friend was the guy to page attention, Mr Fed in the past for customer assistance folks again, we're very immature.
You're just gonna have to deal with that.
But we're going.
We're going to shift our focus here in just a minute and head over.
Ah, to talk to ah, Kyle center. So we can talk some hockey.
We're going to talk 10 greatest goalscoring seasons of all time.
So, um, hang out.
We're gonna go to a break, and I I I swear to you guys, we will be back this time.
But if we're not, just hang out.
We'll be back tomorrow at 8 30 But no, seriously, we're gonna go to a break and, um, you know, just hang tight and ah, again we'll be back.
We'll talk with Kyle Center What? Right, folks, Welcome back way did return this time around.
And as you can tell, we have another guest with us, and you know, he's not moving right now.
But I assure you, much like Mike, he is there.
Is there he is Mr.
Kyle, How we doing, my friend? I exist.
You do this? Yeah, Not right now.
And ironically, Kyle is Canadian to so Ah, I just wanted Honestly, I just wanted to play Dusty Roads Name song as we came out of break.
So, um, Kyle, how we doing? Welcome to the show.
Um, good Teoh, I'm eager to talk to you guys this morning.
Yeah, well, I mean, we were planning on having you.
And of course, we had the little technical issue.
The little snafu where? You know Hey, everything just kind of crashed and we were were unable to do what we want to do.
So we're here now.
It's not Monday, but it's fine we're here and we're going to talk Top 10 goalscoring seasons in NHL history because you introduced us to a metric in our discussion last week where we kind of gave our top five goalscorers overall.
Just based on our opinion and just kind of what we've seen.
And you kind of went above and beyond and created an entirely new metric.
So, um, we want to give you the floor to kind of explain that we're going to talk about your top 10 gold goalscoring seasons because, you know, at the top of the list, I think if anyone lists on Friday, you kind of know who it was.
It comes with a bit of a caveat, but, you know, it is what it is.
So before we do that real quick pulse check.
Michael, how we doing? We are here your live way.
We're getting Kyle Buck.
Okay? Just getting just getting, um no, I just wanted to make sure what we have in store for our audience on Friday.
Yeah, You don't really want to make sure that you're tuning out of that show? No, True aside, Kyle has the microphone.
He's got to come today.
It'll be a much better show because I guarantee it.
No, but it all kidding aside, we do want to talk about because it's a very interesting, very interesting metric.
And I think the results of your list at a lot of merit to it.
Now again, I mean, anyone can come up with some sort of ah mathematical equation, toe define X or define why, when it comes to sports and look, sometimes it just doesn't make sense. I mean, you can.
There's so many numbers you can create whatever you want, but you're metric.
Actually, it makes sense because you look at the seasons on these on this list.
You look it kind of just, you know, the players on this list and you're like, You know what? It may not be exactly how I would have put it, but this makes me think so.
Kyle, have the floor, my friend.
All right, so the metric is called.
I called eager e a G R, which stands for air adjusted goals per game. rate.
So basically, what I did is for each season of a player.
I calculated their goals per game and, um, luckily, and a hockey reference dot com has tons of stuff for this.
I looked at every seasons goals per game average for the league, and then I divided a player's personal average by the total in the league.
Which gives a percentage of this is the rate that the player is scoring relative to the to the league average because it gave the context of again what? What are the best goal scores, right? Obviously, a cable.
Wayne Gretzky has the record for most goals.
You have to consider him right.
But of course, he also played in an era where coal scoring is at heights we haven't seen since the twenties, really, in terms of sustained kind of getting numbers over over the course of a decade.
Um, and I think the easiest way to explain this metric, actually to look at to Wayne Gretzky seasons, So you have his 1980 81 82 season, where he scored 90 tools.
Then you also have his 1983 84 season, and even though he didn't score as many goals that year.
It's actually ah, better season on the ah on the eager, um, ended up with 29.
9% which on this ranking was actually, uh, did that put him.
That put him at at seventh for his 84 season, not the year he broke the record because his record breaking goalscoring season actually ends up as the Ivan is the 13th highest.
So it gave context because that season that particular year in 81 82 goals per game average was at 4.
1 We've literally not seen a season since then of over four.
It's only one of six in NHL history of over four goals per game and only two.
That didn't happen in the 19 twenties.
So that particular season was historic in terms of the actual gory, which means that it didn't if they lowered his eager metric because again, it's all reference toe.
How good of, ah, somebody is in season in a particular season reference to the rest of league.
Uh, I guess another great example of this is Gordie Howe's season.
7 goals per game.
Actually, of all the the single seasons on this list, it's the lowest goals per game.
But the 1952 53 season and the next year, 53 54 goals per game that year were down to 2.4.
We have literally Nazi eat dead center, the dead puck here.
It was never that low.
The lowest ever got during the dead puck era was 2.6.
So we're still talking about point over point to goals per game, less than when it was that the worst in the dead pack era.
So those those couple years in the fifties goalscoring was just down dramatically.
So Gordie Howe getting a 0.
7 goals per game that year gave him a 29% eager would have it at 29 29.7.
So that so I think those are the two examples I would give to kind of give context to exactly what eager is that I explain that.
Well, people I know I think I can definitely make well, No, Go ahead.
Um, well, actually, what is? What should I talk about? next on this.
You wanna talk about any Bruins players in particular? Well, and in my point being, Ah, when you look at this list, um, it again, you look at the players on the list and it makes sense.
I mean, you mentioned you asked us before we came back from commercial break off the air about, you know, who do you think the highest scoring Bruin was on the air and I and I think right off in my head, you you gotta go can nearly 50 goals and and you know, the last player to do so.
Especially now that the season is now on hold and and David Pasternak will be unable to achieve that feat.
But, um I mean, I look, I'm fascinated by the metric because I think it does Open up.
You know, open up your eyes, t evaluate goals going a little bit differently.
And like you said, I mean, there's very specific errors where goalscoring was higher.
I mean, obviously, now it's it's far more open, so you're going to see more goalscoring.
You know what I mean? There's far less restriction on the offense is far less advantages for defensive players goalies.
That the goaltender trap is laid, you know, was a was a key part for some of these teams that really, ah, lived in that dead puck era.
I mean, obviously, it's, you know, when you think about that area, you think about the New Jersey Devils, you think about Bird or you think about Shock Lemaire and just how he used to be that quote unquote third defenseman and it would.
It would stunt, install, offensive rushes and, of course, you know, traps and all that stuff.
So, um, if you scored a lot of goals during that area era, I would think that that should be valued a little bit higher.
And I think that's what you see with Pavel Berry in this situation because I mean, obviously the season, I'll let you explain that in a minute.
Obviously, it's it's a much smaller sample size, but at the same time, you know the the numbers are there.
So and I guess it's this more of a justification of why included or even that the kind of justify to myself a little bit.
So, um so the highest eager rating that I had found for any single season was Pavel Berry, 1998 99.
9% which you say that number without the context of everything else.
Okay, that that's pretty.
That's pretty high.
No other player had a single season of more than 31.
8 Brett Hole in 1990 91 where he scored.
Think was 86 schools.
8% so that that's still 13% below Pavel Burberry.
So it's It's an insane outlier season.
He had Ah, 11 played 11 games, scored 13 goals that year, which is a 1.
1 ankles per game average.
That's actually the highest in NHL history again.
Outside of eso, What I say, history shouldn't really say I should say anything past 1942 because that's really where I've calculated is anything that started at the start of the original six era.
I'm actually gonna go back and do the pre original six ERA in a kind of a separate article in the next movie month or so, Um, but from since 19 4 to 1.
18 goals per game, that was what Gretzky had in 84.
So, like that's that's at that level.
And again, this the metric is air adjusted goals per game rates the goals per game.
Is that the main factor behind it? And ultimately, I didn't I thought, Okay, on my drawing, an arbitrage line of Is there a minimum number of games to reach? Um, and ultimately felt that what I'm trying to showcase is, ah, players, goalscoring talent or prowess, even if it is just a small sample size when Pavel Berry did in those 11 games is it's so ridiculous that, yeah, he probably wouldn't have maintain that type of gold per game average over the course of a long season.
But even in just in 11 games, sample size to score at that well is ridiculous.
It's insane, and I felt it needed to be talked about, even if it because then I thought about because there's a Paul Korea game on this list, where he only played 22 games.
So it's like, Am I drawing the line there? Um, I mean Cam Neely, one of his seasons.
He only played about 46 games.
Like Do I draw the line there because it's only about half season, so I just felt instead of trying to figure out where the numbers are gonna lie, I'm just gonna leave them all as they are going to show them all.
Uh, and I talked about that in the article that if, you know, I could see people having a problem with this, that I know there's already one comment about it.
People kind of laughing at it.
But, I mean, I read the article and I say that like, I'm not gonna make that justification of.
It has to be a certain number of games played.
Yeah, because I mean, you're talking about ah, players ability to to score.
I mean, look, you know, it's Pavel Burry.
It's not Byron bits.
You know what I'm saying? Like I mean, in that case, you can sit there and say like, Oh, maybe this one person for stretch of 18 to 20 games just had Ah, crime happens, you know, it's rare, but it happens that a player that you know is probably the best mediocre will have a stretch like that.
I mean, I obviously you've dived into the number.
Don't you dove into the numbers a lot deeper than I have eso you might know off the top of your head if there is any sort of outliers out there.
But in this case, Pablo Burry, it's like, Yeah, perhaps that gold rate would have gone down a little bit.
But no, maybe maybe it's only a little bit.
I mean, it's It's Pavel Burry.
The guy knows how to score goals.
So again, to me, this this adds merit to list now again.
Like you said, people aren't going to agree with it cause they're going to sit there and say, Oh, he only played what was in 18 games or whatever it was.
It's like all you can't count that.
Why not? I mean, that's that's still, you know, fourth of the season, almost So you know, at that point, it's It's like you said.
I mean, are you creating an arbitrary line, or are these other people just making arbitrary standards to kind of disprove what you're trying to say? And look, I mean, I think based off the metric this is a, uh, appropriate ranking and and again, it makes you think and realize just again how good Pavel bar it was.
I think people have forgotten.
Or at least there's a lot of people that just don't know much about him, because again, there's a lot of 20 something year olds out there that may not know, or it may not have seen him play, uh, in his prime or whatever, so oh, I completely agree with that.
I mean, I think that in a lot of ways, this was an eye opener from me.
Murray is one of those guys.
I think that always falls under the radar in terms of how good he actually was.
Until you take a look at the statistics and you realize that he belongs in a conversation like this, I'll be honest.
When Kyle had mentioned Public Area a couple of weeks ago, even before we did our goal scoring rankings here on FBC Radio life, my eyebrow went up and I was like, probably all right, really? And then I absolutely started to look into it and I realized that you know what? Yeah, he does.
He belongs in these conversations.
He really is an amazing goal score.
Something that was in his article that really jumped out at me is the 98 99 campaign, Curry played only 11 games.
He managed to score 13 goals during that here.
It's during that span, so he had more goals and he played games.
That's that's a ridiculous pace, something that is one of those again one of those statistics that goes under the radar.
But you really don't get a chance to explain expound upon it or really appreciate it until someone puts it in front of you.
So, yeah, I was a little bit, ah, surprised to see him, you know, number one on the list.
But when you look at the case that he made, I think it's a valid case.
I was happy to see Neely.
I was happy to see Esposito.
He talked about the 70 71 season last week, but this was a great exercise.
I really enjoyed doing my own research on it and then reading Kyle's ****ysis and the greatest goalscoring seasons of all time.
And, you know, you forget a lot of them.
It brings back a lot of memories, and you you see a lot of names that you maybe even having thought of in a while, and I think it comes to the forefront at that one, especially if you're a hockey fan who I'm a I'm a pure fan.
I mean, I'd be lying if I said it was anything even close to an expert.
Anyone that's listening to our show, I'm sure can pick up on that.
But I am a fan of the game and these air names that I remember watching names that I remember, you know, being in awe of at the time, then all of a sudden some kind of trickle away.
But this brings it back.
And I think this is a This wasn't a good exercise.
I really enjoyed reading this article.
I think I'll did an amazing job here.
Yeah, hopefully he is listening because it looked like he you got dropped from the call.
We've been trying to get him back while you were talking, but we're gonna keep trying to do that.
I guess he's having some issues with Skype, So bear with us.
Um, I can tell you what, though.
I could have absolutely kept up that goal scoring pace with Pablo bar in NHL 94 for Sega Genesis.
Uh, I know, I know that that's a personal favorite of mine when it comes Teoh when it comes to Ah, video games, video hockey games Where you Ah, NHL 94 guy Where your second Genesis guy? It was just this guy have Ah, you haven't gel 94 NFL game day for Sega.
Genesis was huge back in the day.
When, before, you know, the police station and everything you came out, but, uh, yeah, not Segel was Definitely, um I was more of a stake a guy as I transitioned over into different gaming systems.
I'm still to be totally honest with you, and I'm really gonna be a boomer here, but I still say nothing could ever beat the original eight bit Nintendo.
I'm not talking about graphics, folks.
I'm not talking about, but, I mean, in terms of just, like, ingenuity, gameplay, I mean to me that right back to my, uh, my childhood knows where those were phenomenal games, But yeah, I did.
I did like Genesis, Aziz.
Well, I used to have a lot of those games.
It was a big fan of the wrestling games on Genesis, like those.
Like I said, between those and again the hockey games are the best.
But you know the point.
Being Pavel Burry was just fantastic in the game.
And, you know, the, you know, the ability to go in the end down the ice to ah, wrap around the back of the net to score was, um yeah, it was It was It was a very easy thing to do once you got it down.
And look, I could play those games overall, and I think I think I think we're getting Kyle back.
Kyle, I can see you're moving. You're alive.
Um, welcome back.
I notice is back.
He said he's saving that that way.
Loads the listeners this morning.
We lost enough listeners this morning already.
Nobody wants to hear me singing.
No, we'll save that for Friday.
But we do want to pick up real quick.
You know, before we obviously go to our next break here in about nine minutes.
88 or nine minutes.
So we do want to catch up.
Since we dropped you here, Um, you said you can hear us.
So we were obviously remarking about I know I played NHL 94.
You said N h 003 Wish your jam.
And I'm gonna I'm gonna quote you on that one because I saw it in the chat.
But now about a badge of honor.
Oh, yeah? Why was that? 03 Who is on the cover for that one? That's Iginla.
Was it again? You? What's it really again? Yeah, Yeah.
I mean, off that, uh, the year almost won the Hart Trophy.
Right? Let's be honest.
Theater was OK, but not heart trophy worthy.
That was getting kind of brought their but whatever, um, bring about memories of Ah, 18 Montreal Boston matchup that I don't want to relive.
So, anyways, well, I'll be 2003 to 7 Detroit matchup that I don't between the ducks just say John Sebastian here.
Yeah, it is a quick I'll blame that, um Mike Bob Koch.
Coach team, actually.
Yeah, but, um, the reason I like 2003 is the out of this feature that I don't think I've seen in any other NHL game since.
Um, as the game progressed, few scored goals.
You one fights completed hits.
You get this meter.
That would go up when the meter was full.
You could actually slow down the game for about 5 to 10 seconds.
And so, like, you know, I know that the one thing they always try to promote was, I'll use it to decode goalies and stuff or are set up one timers offensive chances.
And I like that because eight gave give you a reason to fight.
So I was like, OK, I'm gonna keep fighting more if I keep getting points off of it.
Um, so I found that not a whole lot of other games reward the fighting, necessarily.
The players energy goes up a little bit, but it this I found that this this meter actually had this great feature to the game, and I don't again.
I don't think they used it any other game, so I don't know, obviously, it wasn't that popular, but I loved it so on.
And I thought 2003 they also really stepped up graphics wise, well and kind of toe What Mike was saying him living in the Nintendo days and everything like that to me personally, you know, graphics are great, but it doesn't necessarily make for a better game.
Uh, you know Ah, we see it all the time with Madden.
And obviously, you know, all these sports games where you know, little tweaks here and there.
But really, you know, you take things out the substance of some change.
I'd much rather than, you know, maybe not focused too much on the, you know, it has to be everything realistic, but I I do like fighting in games.
Actually, I recently the other day I'm not gonna talk about the results of the serious because I don't want to.
You know, it's not important.
I am going to talk about the fact that I beat Brad Marchand with Philipp Grubauer in a flight.
Yeah, that's right.
Goaltender Philipp Grubauer dropped Brad Marchand to the ground.
So, Chris Blackie, if you're listening, take that.
And then we'll just I don't want any other follow up questions on how the rest of the Siri's went.
We're just gonna leave it at that? Um, no.
But before before we again go back to the brake here in a few minutes.
Um, it was there anything else that you wanted to kind of add? And I know you're working on some other list when it comes to using the eager stat.
And, ah, you know, I think you're looking at, uh I can't remember what you have in the draft right now, so you're gonna have to You have to tell everyone I was just not today too.
So So if you listen to Friday's episode, we talked about who? The five greatest cool sports, right? Then I expand it.
I'm gonna make the 10 greatest based on the ranking.
And actually, it's funny you have to find this out when the article's release.
But Ian Ian called it.
It was a player that I didn't have calculated, so I didn't have in my top five once I calculated his career eager rate.
You don't really need to ****.
That's with our stands for, But, um, once I calculated that I actually realized that this guy's actually number five, not modesty, called her Steven Stamkos.
So ah, good call in.
And to find out who it is just going to read the article.
Folks, once that comes out and should be out this week sometime, um, gonna say maybe Wednesday, maybe Thursday.
Uh, I'm tweeting the recent one.
Obviously, you can find it at f p.
o R I'm sorry at full press NHL.
But of course, if you follow this show on Twitter at FBC Radio Live tweeting that out right now.
So if you're on Twitter, check it out.
If you haven't read it, definitely do.
So because again, I like being right.
So the fact that you know that in this case it does, you know, give me a little bit more credibility.
But at the same time, it's also a great fascinating read.
And of course, if you like hockey, you're going to really be able to dive into it.
And I'm looking forward to being able to use this during actual seasons and everything to measure how players air doing.
During current season.
So, Kyle, with the folks out there, know where they can follow you on Twitter and ah, podcast all that fun stuff so you can follow me on Twitter at Yama underscore ks that spelt n y a m a underscore ks.
I co host the full press fantasy pot and the full press packers pod.
We actually recorded episode last night of the Packers pot.
We're in the middle of ah syriza like we call look pack and we're gonna go back through each area of the of the Packers timeline and just pick out favorite games.
Worst playoff losses, favorite players and things like that.
So we actually recorded Bret Farve air episode last night.
Um, probably gonna be out today, actually.
So almost on editing.
So, uh, look for that later today.
FTC underscore Packers.
Ah, one last thing.
I want to talk about this list real quick.
So for the, uh, 20 greatest single season goal scored.
One thing I noticed, though, was career goals per game average.
Those players that were on the upper echelon kind of showed that consistency throughout their careers.
And one thing that's really important, especially for the next article for the averages career consistency kind of outweighed some of the boom bust seasons.
Like, for instance, Mike Bossy doesn't have a single season on this Top 20 list, but his average he's clearly in the top three all time for the average never had a higher than a 24.
6% but never have lower than 16.
3, which is a ridiculous floor.
Um, so those type of players who were consistently great throughout their career.
Really favored on this? Um ah, the top.
If you look at the top, I think 21 single seasons.
19 of those come from players that are inside the top 15 all time goals per game.
The only outliers were call Korea's one year where he was hurt really early in the of the only end up playing 22 years.
22 seasons, 22 games.
That has to try.
They're tired of charm.
I could try time.
Yeah, Thea other player is on.
I wrote about this article.
He's, I think, 34th all time in goals per game.
So he had one massive season.
But the old time could, I think, was the only year he had above 20%.
So, um, definitely the career average favors those guys that were consistently around that 20% mark.
Yeah, so again, it just adds merit to the number that it does.
You know, again, it's not just picking up these outlier season, so kind of that's great.
We're definitely going to talk more about that in the future.
And of course, we're gonna have you on as much as possible because we enjoy it.
So But for now, we're going to say goodbye.
And, um, we will again. Hopefully again.
You know, we'll talk about Friday.
We'll see what we can do Friday, but we're gonna come on Friday.
Okay, Fair enough.
You know, we at least ah, safest from Mike's voice.
But no, thank you, my boys.
Well, we'll see.
We'll have a whose Who's the worst voice out there, so Ah, but no, thank you, Kyle.
And we're gonna let you go, and then Ah, Mike and I are going to go to a brief break in just a moment.
So stay tuned, folks.
And Kyle, have a great day.
You too. Thanks, everyone.
That was Kyle Center RFP see Packers and F f B c.
Ah, fantasy football managing editor.
Um, like I said, Mike and I are going to go to our last break of the day, and then when we come back, we're going to continue our nonsense discussion about whatever the hell we want.
Um, we're gonna talk about major league baseball.
We're gonna talk about the sports, and maybe we will, you know, redefine the parameters of this O.
R continue to define the parameters of this top 10 eighties love ballots list we're going to give at the end of the week.
So folks stay tuned and, ah, we're going to be right back.
And welcome back, everyone.
FBC RADIO LIVE That's right.
That's the sound of the end of you O and we are excited.
I decided to turn the following him down so I can talk and you guys can hear me. There we go.
We are excited to bring in a guy that we haven't spoken to in a while.
We used to have quite a bit on the show.
He is the host of snowmen in the morning, returning on June 15th 2020.
That's that's right.
That's about 13 days from now.
He is Mr Bryant. So Bryant.
I'm doing great, man.
It's good to be back.
It absolutely good.
Your voice is music to my ears, and it's not the actual music playing in the background.
No, it's It's just your voice that that gets me going every day.
We've been trying to work, work on this and, ah, back and forth, you know, obviously life gets in the way life find A as Mr Ian Malcolm always says, But we found a way to get you on the show here, and we found a way to get this Ah, station rolling.
And we're excited to have you back.
So there's a couple things I want to ask you.
First off, I want you to let the folks out there kind of give them an idea of what? What, what to expect from snowmen in the morning that returns on June, June the 15th.
That is a week from this Monday at 10 a.m.
Yep, away from Monday.
Well, that's the first thing the time changed.
The second, um, after a visit to the doctor, decided to shave an hour all of the show, so I can, you know, have enough strength to get through it.
And, you know, with my wife talking to me and my doctor talking to me the shaping the our office.
Good, because you got to show you also have the snowman in the morning podcast.
The F B, um, told press MBA podcast.
I mean, that's enough of a load for me to handle right now.
Eastern time is where you can win.
You can hear snowman in the morning live and returning on the on the 15th.
Just get the fans, give the fans what they missed and I've been doing the show, but ah, my health forced me to take about a month and 1/2 away.
So and people don't know who have little people who do know who have listened to show Listen to the show.
I am finding type two diabetes right now.
I'm also trying to get my weight down as well.
And after a visit to the doctor yesterday, um, well, on a good path to to doing that.
And I know you guys air hiked on coffee, but I'm gonna have to quit that.
Have it If I'm really going to Yeah, I'm gonna have to find another source of find another source of energy, But, um, after the last since the Super Bowl, been going like crazy and you know, folks, you know, I was on a couple of other stations, didn't pan out like I hoped.
Was that disappointed? Yeah.
And for those of you who know and listen to the show, I I I'm also fighting depression, and it really sent me into a tailspin.
And my wife finally got a hold of me and she says, You got to get out of this funk and I'm gonna help you.
So like I said, uh, business to the business of the Doctor, Um, she had a death in the family, so we had to take some time away for that.
Gave me a chance to, um, go see my son and my in laws.
5 weeks away is enough.
I'm ready to get back at it.
And and that And that makes me happy to know that you're getting to a good spot.
And of course, you know, health, health, and family is the most important thing.
And that's true now, more more than ever, you know, with everything going on and obviously just you know, all the events you know around the country and everything like that.
I mean, it's important, toder, that you value the things that are most important in your life.
And at the top of that list is family and health.
So, um, we're we're excited to have you back on here I know.
I know Mike is, and you know, Mike and I joke quite a bit, but, you know, this is this is serious.
We want, you know, we wish you good health, and we want you good to have good health, because we need someone to pick up that two hours right after our show.
You know, we way we need you rocking and rolling as soon as we get off there so we can keep these guys listen and keep these guys he could not.
He just could not resist.
Okay, inside my friend, in an idea that the sentiments that we put forth our sincere and from the heart um, just a little under a couple of years ago, um, Brian reached out to me and ah, we've been coordinating and trying to pull our efforts ever since.
And one of the great joys of this job is getting a chance to know people like Brian Snow.
Uh, I consider him a friend, and I consider him family.
And when he heard what I heard, and when he goes through difficulties, I go through it with them email.
We're not in the same state.
Even though We don't talk every single day.
There's on there.
That's always acting.
And to hear you getting back on track, my friend, to hear you getting the help that you need, it inspires me to be a better person.
I think it's all to be better people.
And I'm not before you.
I wish you nothing but the best.
You no, you have to very staunch allies on both sides of the microphone right now on anything that we can do to help.
It's always going to be the case.
So, you know, with all you know, with all our, you know, with all our efforts, you know, combined we'll get there.
And from a selfish standpoint, I'm glad to have the snowman back, providing the content that only he can deliver.
Because folks, let me tell you, not just is he one of the greatest personal guys in the business is one of the greatest.
That doing what he does listen to his show once I guarantee you it's like Lay's potato chips.
You can't just listen a one you keep going, keep going because he is.
He's just he's that good.
He is that good.
So uh, God bless my friend.
And just from the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best.
I know nothing but the best will happen because I firmly believe at the end of the day, even though it may not happen right away.
And even though there may be hard roads for a lot of people, the best usually does happen to the best people.
At least that's the hope that I live in.
And I hope that's the cast for use.
God bless my friend.
I'm glad to see you doing well.
I appreciate you guys.
I I appreciate you guys.
So so much happened my back with, um, all that's going on since February.
And it's it's good to be back on a on a steady road, and not just not just you guys in the family at full press coverage, I must shout out my wife, Jody.
She's been there for me since day one.
And Mike, you knew about Jodi when we first connected and high on how important she is, how important she is to me.
I mean, she has she's been my rock, and she knows how much I love doing this and her one demand of me.
She says you do this in a healthy state, No matter how long it takes for you to get back to that, I'll help you fight it.
I'll help you get through it.
And Ah, yeah, Week from equal Monday I'm back at it and I'm back live, and I can't wait.
And And look, the materialistic, uh, weasel that that I am.
No, I was a little quote from Armageddon, and, uh uh huh.
And I'm obviously gonna make make a point to say this is all the more reason to keep listening to the f p c ap pc Radio Full press radio on the F B C F 24 7 Because you get us, you get you, you get our our guy Memphis Spencer, and you've got a whole lot of podcasts, another live program and going on.
So I have Teoh I can't resist.
I'm I'm a shameless self promoter.
Let's just put it that way.
And that's not a bad.
And that's not a bad thing at all.
No, that's not a bad thing.
I mean, I got up early, you know, to go to work.
I came back and and ah, friend of mine made it mass for me with my showed local wanted.
I saw there were eyes all over the their eyes all over the place on it.
My wife took a picture yesterday and it's fun.
It's fun seeing that.
But folks, you can listen to the show, the full press radio, the EPC app and also beginning on on the 15th I'm reviving the websites.
No band in the morning dot com, so you can listen to the replay there as well as on FBC.
So as Ian is a shameless promoter, so my that in that in that time to get back at it.
And that's why we work well together.
And I know this is something I announced yesterday because it was kind of on a whim that this happened, but I don't know if you saw, but we now own the domain full press radio dot com, so it makes it even easier for folks to get to our landing page there, and it's in the process of being redone a little bit.
The current pages still up, but you know, in the next coming days, it'll it'll be redone.
It'll prominently feature our show, your show and the other great live shows that we have on Monday through Friday.
So I know you only got about five minutes left here, and I know this is Ah, it's been over for a couple weeks now, but I'm dying to get your thoughts just just briefly, obviously, on the Michael Jordan do***ented, because I think we obviously both land in the same um, sense are same mindset.
When it comes to what we think Michael Jordan is, I think he's the greatest of all time.
I think you think he's the greatest of all time and I don't want to speak for Mike.
Although I do all the time.
He just doesn't know about it.
I'm going to say Mike says he's the greatest of all time.
Yes, Mike would agree with that.
Okay, well, so this time this time you spoke, um, wisely.
Thats time this time it's like this.
I am sick and tired of people using the do***entary that last adds to bank all their frivolous statistical comparisons between MJ and LeBron, saying Because of this.
LeBron is better.
Because of that.
LeBron is better. Wrong answer.
I lived in Chicago during the 13 years that M.
I've been to symbols games, including the 1991 MBA Finals or a k a.
The World Championship Series.
I've seen the man playing person, and if you want to compare LeBron to MJ, you're being stupid.
In doing so, anybody that has that kind of innate skill We knew you had the skill sought at North Carolina.
You're talking about a guy that didn't make his his high school team as a sop****re and use that s fuel for his entire career.
I mean, he hit the game winning shot against the Georgetown Hoyas and next, maybe two on the floor at the Superdome in front of 60,000 people.
If that's not pressure, I don't know what ISS everything up.
Especially when he started winning six titles.
Eight years, six finals appearances, six championships, six finals, MPP.
Where does the Brown following this conversation? He doesn't see.
I I just I just got inspired right here and now hear me out.
Ah, a new segment.
What's the debate.
Host a conversation between two opposing.
I love it and I have the greatest first episode in the world.
Brian Snowman is no verse, another great contributor to our website, Mr John sapa Chetty, who have different views on this topic.
One believes Michael isn't one believe LeBron is.
I think it would be a great, great segment to be modern moderate with my man.
I would say I love I love suffocating, You know, He's been on my show a couple of times.
It's great to have on Idol.
Okay, I would have. We can make that happen.
Love to do that.
I would absolutely love to do that when I got a fire at the station here and get everything ready on today's Snowman in the morning coming to you at 10 a.m.
I premiere a new segment myself.
It's called from Amateur to CEO, and my first CEO is Deana Jones Genes.
Tell me how started her show.
You'll hear from Bob 10 Trick, the president of the Negro League Baseball Baseball Museum in Kansas City.
Also, you will hear from Tyler Crowder of kicking it with Crowder, a gentleman who I met on Twitter.
I got that and a couple of other cats.
So for the next 120 minutes, you're going to hear the best snowman in the morning.
And this is how you get locked in the snowman in the morning.
Monday through Friday at 10 a.m.
I love it. I love it.
So, Brian, this is a pleasure.
We're gonna talk soon again.
I know you gotta head out.
So we're gonna let you go, folks, That's Mr Brian Snow.
Check it out. Snowmen in the retort.
Uh, snowman in the morning returns live June 15th.
And, of course, tune into the best of immediately following the show.
Brian, have a great day, my frank.
So look at that, Mike.
We we just we just created show is born in Rio is born.
And you are pregnant.
Well, what we'll do you, like, What's the debate? Or do you, like, embrace debate? Better? Because I'm thinking one of the two I'm thinking I'm thinking one of the two could be What do you think is more catching? Maybe we should put a polo, you know that? What? I think that I I think that's exactly what I'm thinking.
So we will do that.
Will put a pull out there.
What? What? You know, what do you prefer? But, you know, here, this is this is an opportunity for Mike to be played game show host.
You know, it's perfect.
I can sit back and do nothing.
Um, I can ask the questions, and we can have two people with two opposite views, you know, debate.
And look, this isn't about getting at each other again.
Both both of these gentlemen, obviously, Brian and John, fantastic people.
And I think it would be a bit it'll be a fun debate because it would be respectful.
And I think it will be something that we we don't get that often.
It Well, I mean, okay, LeBron burst, Michael, we get it literally every second of every single day.
So I'm not gonna pretend like that's the case, but it's not gonna be this.
You know who can scream louder.
I think we're gonna have fun with it.
And again when we can, when we can make puns and segments off of puns.
I mean, really, I mean, how much better can you get? Um, it has my name in the title.
Really? How much better could I get in that? It's really This is my show. Yeah.
This is my mind.
Grab your competition.
Yeah, I know and all.
Yeah, and on all actuality.
No, I mean, really, it's It's something that I think is, um it's it's a type of environment that you can have a lot of fun with.
Yes, I know folks were far from being the only ones that have thought of this.
There's a lot of these types of shows that are out there but that everybody has the the guest pool that we can choose from either.
And I think that ah, lot of this is going to depend on that.
So I'm I would absolutely love to be able to moderate something like that between Brian and John Spaghetti.
Two guys that I respect to the hilt in this business to guides that I know very well.
And I think this would be an excellent, excellent argument.
So, folks, give us your feedback.
Tell us what you think, and you know we'll go from there.
But I like this.
I'm really liking it.
I'm happy about it, too.
And look, maybe it's the It's the renewed energy.
Maybe it's the hour and 1/2 time slot.
Now, maybe it's just this.
Ah, I find a really good show today.
You know, despite a little hiccup with losing Kyle for a few minutes.
You know, everything's gone over very well.
I think we've had some fun discussions.
Um, and I think this would be a great segment.
So, you know, we'll work on that s o In a matter of two days, we've come up with two segments.
One this week and again, we're gonna We're gonna kind of, uh, define it mawr throughout the week, but top 10 Well, ballots of the eighties.
I mean, there's just so many so many to choose from.
Um, half of my brain is thinking about that.
The other half is tryingto sustain the capacity needed to do the show s Oh, that's that's why I'm mashing work together and things aren't quite coming out as clear as I hoped, But it's gonna be a fun week.
And I think Friday that's a great Friday segment for us.
I mean, what better way to end the week than to discuss some eighties love ballads, like I said earlier, and you know, I mean, I know, but seriously, really, this actually is a lot tougher than people are gonna think it is.
And I know a lot of people are gonna roll their eyes when they hear you say that, but it really it's It covers such a broad spectrum because you don't have the love about what really, I think died a slow death.
As the nineties started to wane into the new millennium.
I think that, you know, you don't see those types of songs come out anymore.
And if there are, you know, they languish in a dull contemporary radio for like, maybe like a week, and then they go away.
You really don't see those anymore.
But the eighties was the peak of that.
Almost every band, whether you were a hard core rocking band or air metal band or whatever, you had to show the softer side at some point in order to gain some sort of commercial success.
So I think it's gonna cover a broad spectrum and I think it's really gonna be a lot of fun to narrow this down.
Um, the more obscure you know, the better I rose.
Well, what 18 in life be considered a ah love song is just asking for a friend.
Yeah, probably not.
No, not one of them.
Yeah, and that's up.
It's gonna end up on this list.
I mean, it's all about perspective.
It's all about interpretation.
And if you interpret it the right way, But but no, seriously, though, I think I think what's gonna be fun about this, uh in particular is the fact I feel like are our list.
They're gonna differ greatly, And it's not because we have such It's just because there's so many to choose from.
I mean, you mentioned there's so many songs.
I mean, I'm thinking about a few off the top of my head, but I probably haven't even begun to scratch the surface.
I'm gonna think about, like one and be like, Oh, my God, how is that not even thinking about that? I mean, you know what I'm saying? Like so? And what would be incredible, though, is if we've somehow managed to get, like eight or nine of the same one then that will truly be convinced that we share half of the same brain because there's no way that we should come close to getting ah half of the same answers to this, which which is part of yeah, they're really will.
And for those of you thinking, though, there will not be coordination.
And I really, truly going going this.
We really are going to just bring our lists and that's it.
There will be no outside discussion.
Folks will be a surprise that you are auras pleasantly surprised or is disgustingly surprised that you are depending on your perspective.
But I think it will be a lot of fun.
And I'm looking forward to it is gonna be a great way to end the week.
Well, because I can I can almost guarantee that that maybe there were each going to have a song on our list that we disagree belongs on the list in terms of is it really a quote unquote? You know what I'm saying? Like, that's what I think.
I think there's gonna be a song that I have that you're like, Well, I don't even know if I would consider that a little ballot and so on and so forth.
So, um, yeah, I'm just gonna be fun.
I'm excited for it.
Like I said, that just means I have a whole lot of music to listen to.
And, uh, I'm okay with that.
I'm okay with that.
So we got about 10 minutes left.
This is this is form that we've literally doubled our on air time relative to what we had been doing, which is about 40 to 45 minutes.
Eso we've We've absolutely doubled it today.
And and everything has gone over pretty smoothly, as far as I know.
Unless I, you know, open up the audio file and realize, you know well, half of its plan given.
Well, guess what? The show never happened.
Unless you're watching on SportsCastr, in which case is up there.
And you could replay and watch it over and over and over and over and over again.
But I do want to bring up real quick the, um you know, we're in june now, and I think you know it's so hard, Teoh.
Yeah, and and Kyla real quick brings up a great point R and B essentially replaced those love balance of, you know, in the nineties.
But, um, anyway, very true.
Very that that's another thing we can do what we want to ship debt decades.
And in another week we could we could talk about that.
But again, that's a discussion for another day.
Uh, what we're what's going on obviously is we're inching closer and closer to sports returning.
We've seen it in career.
We've seen baseball leaves going, Um, I believe and I saw this this morning and and correct me if I'm wrong, But I believe, uh, spade is is implementing ah implementing ah limited number of fans into soccer games.
Oh, are planning to do so in the coming months.
So they're there.
I don't want to say there's light at the end of the tunnel is certainly no light going on right now.
I mean, we spoke about it briefly yesterday in the time we were on the air, but obviously there's especially in this country right now.
There's so many other things going on that again kind of put the pandemic on the back burner for for for a few minutes, which is absurd to think about, but it But it is what it is.
And again, Like we said yesterday, we you know, the most important thing is be safe, you know, just just be kind and everything to one another and all that stuff, but keeping it in a sports ah, manner.
There are steps being taking to return.
We've already talked about hockey.
We know when hockey or at least we quote unquote no, with within a ballpark number of days when hockey is gonna be returning, basketball is talking about, you know, finishing up the up the season starting at the end of June.
The one issue, I mean, the NFL, it's found in determined to go on is normal.
Which again, I have no doubt that they're going to, you know, given, given the cir***stances are surrounding us right now.
And, of course, the cir***stances in which when the season starts for the NFL, I think it kind of works in their favor that they will start on time.
The one question is major league baseball, who seem to be Ah, fighting back and forth between the league and the Players Association about how many games, how much money and all this.
And look, I I have very little confidence at this point that we're actually gonna get a season from them.
And it's a shame, because I feel like baseball is is one of the, you know, you know, one of the one of the league's that that could have really ah, you know, really could have ah used this situation to their advantage, not only because of being a only type of product on the field, but really, of all the sports, I mean, you want a social distance, what do you do? You play baseball? E mean, how often are you? Are you that close to the person next to you and, you know, obviously outside of dugout.
But, you know, the point is, is like if they lose a season because they can't, you know, figure out a solution to both of their issues.
And I think that so that's a huge loss for baseball and and certainly one that they deserve because it's on them.
Yeah, it truly is.
And this could end up being a real problem for Major league baseball.
Ah, Jeff Posson, who is an MLB insider, tweeted out yesterday that Major League Baseball wants to propose a new, shorter season.
Ah, that would pay players a full pro rated share of their salaries.
And this was according to his sources within ESPN, and that at this point that would sort of bring the Players Association back to the table.
But the MLB P A is also proposing a new deal is, well, Ah, that would include, I believe, 114 game season.
If I read correctly, other would end on October 31st so there's still a lot of posturing going back and forth.
I think there's still the desire for both sides to come together.
That's why I hold out a little bit of open some optimism here.
But if they don't and this is something that doesn't end up coming to fruition, Major League Baseball could really find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to professional sports, they're going to be seen as the league that just did not want to come together and it is going to be seen as a selfish gesture and that's a shame because right now the country needs sports.
It needs unification folks more than ever.
You know, we're just We're really in a bad way in one of the worst ways I've seen this country and quite a while.
And, you know, that's not a reflection on political folks out of mean it in that nature, but in terms of morale, in terms of its citizens, feeling safe, feeling motivated, um, feeling confident and just feeling good.
Very few Americans, very few people that I speak to feel all of those things.
At this point, there is some sort of fear that some sort of anxiety anger.
Um, whatever you feel right now is part of that.
And sports can help to be a bridge toward building a better future.
And I'm not saying that is being trying to be prolific.
It's just it allows us to be able to focus on something that is different than what the daily and and national, you know, problems that we're having right now can face.
Major league baseball has that unique opportunity because this is their time.
Let's face it, N B A and NHL.
Under normal cir***stances, they're almost ready to start finishing up.
I mean, we're talking, you know, really do.
Now, you know exactly So I mean, they'd be in the throngs of the conference finals or the actual Stanley Cup final or the N B A Finals so they're ready to finish up their season.
Football training camps are still a little ways away.
People really don't get into unless you're hard core football.
That's like, you know, Ian and I, and then the people that we work with, you know, we're pretty much 24 hours a day.
We're pretty much 24 hours a day.
But who those training camps and stuff are not poking back up.
So when you look at it, um, this is Major league baseball's time.
This is the time that everybody would be absorbing.
Baseball is the primary content for sports, and for them not to be there.
And when there's opportunities to be there and they didn't take them, that's gonna reflect negatively.
Yeah, and again, this is a sport that certainly doesn't have the cash aid to lose any more fans.
I mean, we can't So, um yeah, it will be interesting to see, but here we are, Mike wrapping up a flawless flow.
It's Tuesday episode.
Ah, we had a great conversation with Kyle Center again.
