Quack hers is going not so wherever he is right now Michigan. Mean. She again. Rims out a wide open look or didn't winds after a last second Michigan missed. Buyout point out. But I am. I out point that ducks are in to the elite eight wow. Wow wow wow what a what a great finish. That was tight at the end that's exactly. What does CBS is looking for in prime time East Coast game. That was good that was an awful lot of fun. Ducks' first team into the elite eight. Graduation is. Deanna I get a story here that you're officially going to file under one of the most disturbing things you've ever heard tied to sports. Might not be sporty here. Might not be you know you say this is our problem. But how much longer until the NFL starts making excuses like this to get a player thanks. Apparent. So I saw the some black sports online. As a wall no I do not like soccer not a soccer guy but this is officially a story that makes me ago. You've got to be kidding me. Maybe I need to be paying more attention. A Brazilian goal keeper named Bruno de SuSE. At a baby with a mistress. So along with his wife. Another mistress. And family members. He had. Liza. So mood oh tortured and killed. After she was killed her body to be disposed of was fed to dogs. And the baby. Was dropped off on the steps of a Brazilian slob. He was sentenced to 22 years for the crime which actually feels a little light doesn't it. But he only served 77. Years. For conspiring. To murder his mistress. Would his wife and yet another mistress and other family members and then took the baby. And just left it for debt and abandon the baby kind my god that's horrible. The only served seven years of his 22 years. And as soon as he got out of jail he immediately was signed by boa is sport day which apparently. Is a soccer team down. Bruno decided to have an interview with the ES PM Brazil this by the way it was translated by dead spend and the things that came out of his mouth. Heart simply amazing. And all I can think of his like. The next time the next time. Some angry group of women get together to talk about what is wrong with American sports and out NFL just allows a rape. You know what rape culture. As exit out of sandy you're totally wrong but I am saying here exaggerating quite a bit sometimes. This isn't that crazy how even signed a sky hello Sarah Spain would think about this on ESPN. What would end Killy and I have to say about this. The next time you're like oh my god that guys getting a second chance. Joseph mixing and he should never play in the NFL. Here's a Bruno had to say. It's happened in life especially when you're around people were money and fame blind you. I'm excited chances of me. Killing someone based on you know I'm blinded by fame material. So it's not gonna out there and god this guy Gionta you know understand this is direct quote. Not a bad guy and stick was it a serious one serious. Dude what happened happened. Person's horrible etc. quote that is horrible direct quote right there. Right there. There is no such thing is a little sand in big sand. Paulson. So as far as he's concerned. Parking tickets. Murder all crimes. That is not. That is not equal. Gionta and I quote again. You have to repent for the things from the past and become a better person just because you're deep in the Pitt does not mean you have to stay there no. If you of people reaching for you. You have to climb out. There's is inspirational quote. Of course the pit that he left his dead mistress and wasn't a pin was actually a dog terrible. As he fed the remains of the slain woman to dogs after abandoning the baby. That's he abandoned his child wrecked his kid. His kid and his get his flesh and blood what's amazing online got his wife and his other mistress both agreed that this mistress is the one that stepped out of line. As much dedicated. Who knows. Again you have had the mother of your child fed to dogs how can someone be married to him. A I don't know. Officially one of the most horrible. People on the planet right. What's amazing is this guy's working back in his sport Colin tapper nick might never do it again he's actually trying to feed I'm. Yet not not human remain IT and remain think he's trying to help people. So this guy is one of our new contenders for worst human beings to ever be involved in sports shocking that a team actually sign and I can't get over that here's thankfully that your sue. You know he's bumped a few people off the pedestal you know you think Ray Rice is a worsen never happened Rick Ruth obviously trumped that quite a bit. Do you remember. War machine yes. You actually have your name legally changed to war machine. There's no way you're not gonna do time behind bars not just that simple if you legally change your name to war machine. You've disqualified yourself from a free and unencumbered life. That's this out goes travails are going on there as this out goes you call yourself war machine it's not gonna end well and for him it didn't. A Vegas jury found this former MMA fighter his name was is his name was John top and paper. He changed it to war machine. Guilty on 29 charges. He brutally beat his ex girlfriend and former porn star Kristy Mac. Yell he also beat up the male friend that he found in bed with her. By the way that guy's name is Corey Thomas and Corey Thomas. Izzo all kinds of soft in the middle no I'm not saying that an MMA fighter shaking me out of sleeper whatever catching me in bed. Wouldn't catch me off guard and totally kick my ass that would happen ten out of ten times and. What is insane. Is so war machine broken decreasing Mac's house Christi and access. She's in bed with the southern guy yeah he beats the other guy. Says get down latter here and when you leave don't call the cops. And any guy left. A turnaround beat this woman within an inch of her life yeah. Horrible. OK so I'm definitely gonna tell you I'm not calling the cops to you to your face in front of you but when I leave you. With a woman who you're threatening to kill are probably call the cops by the time I'm in the driveway I would think so how do you not how do you seriously then. Not call the cops is the only person need to call the cops on is the person. Who just beat your ass. Is in a room with a woman vowing to beat her is. Who threatened you better not call the cops yeah that's one guy who want a percent. You need to cops. He showed up that are now. Peter. This guy. Did not. Get charged with the attempted murder. Even though he threatened to killer. Tried to rape her. After the attack she tweeted photos. And became. A viral. Visceral. Person for the cause domestic violence a member book I'm Italian dinners they're probably aren't a lot of women out there. Who are. Supported by nature. Of other women porn stars. But when she. Was defined as something else but a victim of domestic and anyone who had it's like it's like to thank. There's a lot of people who made excuses for what. Ray rice's wife might have been doing might have been saying and that's how some people justified these things and then you saw that footage no matter what you thought. Anyone might of said. Nobody here and that no deserves that she did not want to dessert now. And there's a lot of people think leg you know I almost a rape a porn star is that like contradict know if the woman does not want to have sex at duke and is involved in another relationship and you beat that man and then try to turn around and rarely did you go to jail for the rest of your life usually have to proceed to be chemically castrated if not the old fashion way. With scissors. You'll be sentenced on June 5 he faces life without parole despite the jury not. Coming to a decision. On charges of attempted murder but again war machine will still face life without the possibility of parole. The soccer player from Brazil. Convicted. Of conspiracy to murder. Gets out in seven years instead of 22. And is immediately signed because he's a good goaltender. That's crazy. I mean sometimes he's got a lot to watch and look. How good the goaltender is he really could come up but let's give us. Being always saying it can't throw anything past this guy not up. All not a ping pong ball not a golf all not a dead woman. Lit a lot of hunt Agassi may be he is a little off maybe eight meters and threatening go on if you don't sign me. Unbelievable. Let us say hello to Jorge Colin from LA he wants to talk a little raiders Jorge when he got forming here on the day membership. Well thank you. It actually want to comment on they're a good big. More it was I mean almost every. Three years. I'm so bad. They are not quite but. I honestly wanted to you know there's nothing like. It's part of the tapestry the culture of the fabric like. All those keep. All look there'll be a black hole and there will be people dress like raider fans in the black hole but that'll never be the real black hole ever again they're leaving that. Yeah I agree I I I want them. Like I bet that like that being life but I honestly want in the state man and and their Oakland what is it. Regard ago. Thank you Moret appreciate your call this is Eric from Oakland Eric. Well. Due to what my sources tell me. Com and for the simple fact that the NFL is indeed and it has been quoted. On the right five point seven regardless that would vote the I don't think the regular leaving. I really don't. What gives you that feeling other than the same. Lack of confidence that. NFL owners are secretly conspiring to stab Mark Davis in the back with his own deal in the eleventh hour. Because all signs are pointing. This is going to happen. From people who are better sources than you do Eric I'm guessing in less this is this Eric Dickerson. There apparently. It please tell me please tell me why your gut says this doesn't happen. OK I mean you you you sit on the shall now I mean Oakland would be better as DO former raiders Tuesday. In the long term. SOB to beat. Rolled out convincingly well even though are people. That don't they. Are out there in the bank to. That lie that people peace Mahan at Oakland has not done absolutely. Nothing. Try to keep the raiders in Oakland know mark David and not on the negotiating table it it all Mark Davis. Not Oakland. Yeah I. Sorry I don't know I demand I am I I I'm not here I'm not arguing a single point and make it I'm not I'm not going to you made some of my point but I'm just. As much as I feel this way. The only thing I got left to sell used to watch the raiders aren't going is my feeling. The wind what's in the air the pollen count. Suggests the raiders are leaving. People. Who'd job it is to do these you know to count count the votes before they happened. But in order to count those votes are taking people at their word and a lot of people I think on their werder saying yeah they'd support. The move but secretly when that vote comes around on Monday maybe they don't. And yet if if the raiders aren't moving to Oakland at least theoretically. Tuesday morning. By Tuesday night Mark Davis should be looking to sell the team because they would just said you don't belong you can't afford to move you can't afford to stay I don't know how this happens remark. And at some point he would have to send. Dislike read the room a little you know like obviously. They don't much freer bunny yeah. So this is it. This is it this is event horizon. This is going to be everything you ever needed to know about the raiders and mark owning them. In one vote. If we want to look back and other votes. One might even say it's not gonna go well could but. There's just way too much free easy to grab money on the table right now and obviously relocating. Is done the NFL pretty well. I tell you that this an off an entire West Coast. From Oakland to San Diego to seems like a funny thing to do to make. You got. Two NFL cities that cared deeply about a team. LA didn't give a flying you know what now now LA is gonna have two teams the two cities that really cared. Screw the both the U and Vegas even though you've never had pro sports you get the raiders. Even though we were moving teams in and around LA of course the raiders should have been one of those teams. Its so bass backwards it makes no sense at all unless you're only looking at the money. Excuse me for doing more than only looking at the money. Takes a little. Wisdom. See more than just the money. Let's go to a lot Josh Josh is an Oakland Josh on 957 again. Peg got that tech mark caller you know one tie your votes are embarrassment for. Mark I'll lights but it understandable. Parties are Leah Blanco and kind of council Litsch my old Warner right now Roberto marched regardless so you know that's Cuba and on the question hour to add nine inch. Vietnam. Nobody it talking about it because Hitler relocation but it. Within the next. Two years if they do move date planned Palestinian in Oakland I would not on the lower bottom. Within the next review at the right wing Bravo if they have been to do like what happened read. Actually bet that I'm because that's like me could actually. Relocate right now every angle to the next round in the world like that debt. You can't be the biggest scoop of awkward how the hell do you plan this championship parade of all time because you know they get you one of the things they got app Josh thank you very much political one of the things that hasn't happened during average image of parade is somebody the owner the coach to quarterback is like and you are the past. And Mo are home. Now we're leaving in 24 months. For all new fans that should we win the Super Bowl bear that year will tell them they're the best fans. So it caused me so awkward they carry a B so awkward. I don't wanna paean anybody's corn flakes more than -- have but I actually right now as it stands until I start seeing this there's always teams that are in the playoffs one year that aren't in the next year even though the raiders like locked loaded ready to go to stop the raiders they can screw up anything and that the raiders in a winning record next year. I watch watch something terribly go wrong what all the good will just fall apart around this watch Del Rio get exposed or no matter how many defense coordinators you bring in it's still not the right group and you still don't have the right linebackers and it doesn't make up for all of this there's always a team that steps backwards. Always a team that steps backwards don't believe me. Asked the we'd played in the Super Bowl Carolina Panthers last year if they can take a step backwards so can anybody and I'm gonna put the raiders at the front of the list. You gotta show me you know how to do it years in a row before I assume you know at a doing years in a row. Can you imagine. Monday they tell you they're moving. They've raised prices on you and then they start on 30. My god. Go to the plumber not plumber in San Jose what's up plumber. Ollie just said goodbye than let's say a lot of Kayla in San Jose Kayla. Yeah yeah yeah. And international level. I. Can create name. Highlighting you know actually. And how can learn. Current I. That maybe my car. Could be your right I am average probably I'll let my iron at. Buying and his black tightly as I say yes yes I mean. It appropriately going two American went down at. I'm proud to be it from the actual attack. If there at any point that. Maybe we're back in a little bit you know what I mean I comic panic not mean. Right well again when when when you listen live radio there might be order to that isn't perfectly placed for you Kayla and that's called America and free speech and that's how it goes I was in trying to dismissed. Anything but be that the breathless. Evil. That is thrown at the NFL by people who'll say William Joseph makes it Joseph Nixon was caught red handed punching a girl in college and people will tell you that. If any NFL team ever even interviews genomics and how will never ever follow the NFL. I've ever again and it's justices and there's breathless overreaction to everything when the truth is here's the deal in sports. The player who hit the girl today if he can help you win tomorrow might get a phone call and that is the thing that we all have to wrap around our minds as the way this works we do not living utopia we do not live in some perfect. It's too you know everything's always perfect all the time there's a lot of compromise and things that are screwed up the go into this so if you're gonna cover the NFL. You better be a recover some nasty topics without recoil Ling. Is he overreaction. All the time. You have to like it I don't like the fact that Joseph makes it might have an opportunity to play in the SN FL that's not sit well with me at all but. If the raiders draft him and he goes for 12100 yards with fourteen touchdowns next year. Falcon might have a mix in Jersey and his future that's how sports works. I am I would never buy in a mix in Jersey someone else might may be but not I wouldn't 100% and there's a thing. It is part of what the NFL is an it is sad but it is true. Seven make your right. That's right. And tell it you wanna sports figure. That you can put little faith into. You want an example for the kids. My next guest is exactly that. Chris Byrd itch is. Here. He may. For forget surviving it would public this Chris we're not gonna ask you about crossing the Atlantic Ocean how you got here from SFO is really what we're gonna focus on. We're gonna figure how did this man get from Los Angeles to San Francisco how did it happen. He crossed. The ocean on a toothpick. And survived to tell the tale he did more. To raise awareness. First and very worthwhile charities than anyone else going around these days it is one of the ultimate test of human endurance I've had the privilege. Of talking to him befriending him and he is now finally here we didn't think it was going to happen. Chris Byrd itch is here and we will spend the rest of the show focusing on the single. Coolest story you're going to hear on the radio today this isn't about disloyalty. This isn't about a guy killed his wife and is now on a soccer team. This isn't about a a football coach. Who put his Wiener in hot dog bun turnaround and offered it to his kids by the way hot dogs don't wanna sandwich I don't care what anyone says this is not a San. This is a coach who put his Wiener. An alibi and turned it around and says I want a coach your kid's room with people I know ideally I've no idea what's wrong with people. But I know exactly what's right with Chris Bird she's one of the coolest dudes in the world and you'll get to meet him next. Stick around here his story it's amazing. It's gonna be movie someday it's next on 957 again. Every now and then your offer to look at the world that changes your own perspective of the world in my case the world of sports. Many years ago few years ago for five years ago. I was offered the opportunity to take in. Mavericks for the first time knowing nothing about surfing knowing very little about mavericks' other than the waves are big and dangerous. As I watched that competition won by gentleman named twiggy baker the guy who also. Was in the competition that day's name Chris Bird which. Chris Bird which became one of the cool guys and just started talking to and it was all said and done. Am. It's amazing. That he walks around with a zero arrogance he walks around not ever coming off his one of the simply best in the world that what he does he is a big wave surfer he is known in the world of surfing is a true water man. He is one of the great lifeguards in the world he's he's basically the south African Eddie a cow is really what he is. And the question might now be would Crisco. Any answered that question is oh yeah how far we go he'd go across the ocean on a standup paddle board that is a long way away from big wave surfing. I'm very happy to introduce to you for the first timer hopefully. Many times another time a guy who I think is one of most fascinating people in the world Chris Byrd pitch joining us here Chris great to see. While generous ward an amazing that your if I could carry around in my pocket and taking formal talks. Fortunate. Well I I tell you man I I think that's and I think the way you would just accomplish is one of the great feats in human endurance. To just simply explain it you paddled. On a standup paddle board that was obviously rig for a long journey was indeed there was it is the Cadillac out. Of standup paddle boards but without. Any eyes on you without a an accompanying. Boat next to you. You paddled across the Atlantic Ocean how long did it take. To me exactly 93 days and five dollars 93 days and five hours. At what point did you think of turning back first. That's a great question and a lot of people lost their Christian funny car fascinating because. I've put so much into that project and pretty much had everything on the line for this project and then. When people talk about being able in I don't think a lot of people really understand what that means and you not put. The last five years of the spreads into this project Almonte I'm personal finance Democrats and Bernie gets great support from and Carrick while former presenting sponsors but. I put everything and into this united and every single moment of time 1516 not a day where and for eighteen months. A sacrifice on business almost lost our relationship my house and everything else and once I started day. There was an of that tuning back there was no quitting there was an you know giving out being this project was changing the lives of millions of people on that responsibility as a mark on my shoulders and I knew that it was a oh is my GG irresponsibility bills with an attendant didn't get to this other side in one piece to the make that dramatic positive impact on the Wheldon no matter what was gonna happen now is never gonna give up never gonna give him an ounce can get to aside from. You're willing to die for this Trisha for sure without a shot over that there's not a lot of people who leave their house thinking. Why might not ever return. Because of the choices and I'm about to make choices that are incredibly dangerous almost never made in the course of human history. Tell us why you decided to do this what is the inspiration. There's got to be something that lit the spark what was it Chris. A damning guy Greg Christian and I believe that it in my funeral when you when you really believe in something in you prepared to putter on line and acting canyon aren't mavericks into any ten and I and cause Ross up against the wall as the underdog and an odd plus a putter all on the line but I think there. The magnitude of of this project and what what it's managed to achieve is exponentially billion. You know winning the mavericks image in the biggest ways in the history of the sport yes it was a great accomplishment for myself that and inspired a lot of people but this project. It's the magnitude in regarding to its charity aspect is. And medieval and its Operation Smile as you know yeah I mean get 333. Charities that I did it fall which has operations marches to pay full operation of kids border cliff let let Sinclair pallets. The net and I sparks fund which is to feed hungry kids and even in Africa that don't have enough money be able to go to schools that actually go to school to get lunch box because avenue and at a lunch or dinner the night before. And then signature of hub which is to both schools in Africa where there's not a and money for education and this project the web set it up isn't it and set up likening you to find so we had enough. From the end of this month to go to pay for feeding over 101000 children every month for the next forty years they call or three to five operations every. Month for the next twenty years and to be available five to seven schools when I get back which opened its new gun. Opel myself 'cause I'm passionate lot inspiration education. Battle to get to prove that say that again I think we got it did its it's unbelievable who when I asked was there a point. That you turned back are thought of it obviously you were so sold on this happening you never thought of that but doubt. Must have crept in at some not doubt in whether or not you wanna do this doubt you would make it Chris was there a moment where he said the yourself. If I survive this night. That would be nice and you know the present every night because I don't think. That's exactly where I was glad yeah I won't win wasn't there and Gail I'm not win it wasn't like you know it was in 93 days and I would say probably 75. Dollars and 93 days whereas. Just gonna get through the next. I just gonna get through the next day I just gonna get through the next storm just gonna get through the next month and 493. Days it was pretty humans like that in. I think a lot of people lost like Heidi get to challenge is how do you overcome obstacles. Just like one stroke at a time one minute time when our at a time one day at a time. One knew that he knew not to at a time and no matter wide if you can focus insisting that. You'll eventually get through the obstacle into your toes. There's a lot of life lessons and here we're talking with Chris Byrd that you just did an incredible. Journey. A true test of human endurance because it's like nothing I've ever seen the man cross an ocean. On a panel board not a normal paddle board give us an idea of what it looked like I've seen pictures it basically looks like a glorified jet ski night. That it had like a little load Caroline in the front here and. I'm in front yeah. And yet that's exactly what is basically took my eye opener shouldn't and seventeen and a half foot then a progression standup paddle board and its. And there croft and we both was too if you don't which isn't very much really it's like half of often regional rep. And it's. Double has lied and it's going to look cabin on the front which is really small and it's shorter than I am loans so I never got to sleep. Fools straight shot and that the with the red where I sit anywhere and sleeping is. As why does my shoulders and I'm not a very wide guy and you know over the hold Cheney out on lost like fifteen kilogram which is almost a carbon of off the packs do you play. So are you guys you guys and it's as it was an incredible and I think a lot of people us and I'm like I understand the scope of it ousting their corners of almost a full Iron Man every single day for 93 days China. And that's pretty incredible when you don't actually changing muscle groups Eugene that that twelve to fifteen hours a day a ten to fifteen hours a day and trying to make your own. Freed and hydration procurement. And let's step yet to make to order with the water right you have to make your and you're in 3-D near FT. Secure navigation you have to check or an assistant and you have to update to weigh that and you might get a cup lost sleep and you wake up. Did or ever again. And every day and all obviously you had a little bit more then just. You know. The stars to navigate by I'm guessing you had some GPS and did you indeed have a satellite phone to call if you did reach a it it a catastrophic moment. I united that's gonna party you have to have backups of everything and actually I'll back up so back up sure but you also would think for a project like this you'd have an accompanying stamp tricked it you know this guy vote. Yeah both. Well that tramp steamer that's about trying to make something. That is next to use that would serve his year. It hey. This person didn't mean to sit which creates the need some water how often did you just. Your own war. That's exactly are you you're in genius that I took that into. How do we have enough. And have a water does his nation's colors I'm obvious as compact it's. It's very compact that's exactly what is that on the telemundo cabin had set a panels in the senate panels round Randall my electronics and navigational again and ran Monday senator. But Ellis had major problems with this on a palace not charging any up enough so. It was constantly every day trying to work cut from my heart key structural just from a survival point what I could charge in order to be able to stand up enough to be alert. May can afford a half as much that I normally would have needed to be O Stan I've. Then Hoffman's best that would require my nav systems to be on the run through the knots ships could spark mean and with. With my little am AIS which makes me is like a raid law. Which basically puts a mark mine mind. Croft on their radar until that John Donvan is yes yes and if that united that if you don't amount that you cover that then the board doctors appears and you just become a trend in some coffee cup as they run you down. Now play at any point in time we're a meat is it analysts. Just blank horizon around you or are you in 88 shipping channel worried they're all our. You there are boats around do you did you did you have. A lot of company on your highway of the ocean. You know I got a tree and Canary Islands I was going to order them and shipping lanes and I remember that our stock. My main steering system had had broken propping elect. Broken gained and it was never going to be salvage side T somehow trying to think of like a jury re directed Craig and this is in the fist. He went that route 5400 miles to nominate a little over a gigantic storm. I've got what's called a parachute and doc which is like a giant parachute which guys on the front which holds you in the same sort of positions or you don't trip. Marie Foster and very far in the wrong direction. And I mean thirteen to fourteen knots of wind which is one down from a hurricane. And I mean 68 Nikhil ways which is you know through two to forty feet refereed. Three to four Storey buildings. And I'm not really able to knew that I have no steering. And I'm on being carried out there and I'm surrounded. On my navigational. And page that I see in front of me which is monitoring all the Idec vessels that are on I can see about fifteen. Tankers. Coming and going right around me that are between 50900. Feet long and she five times a wider than on and in length. And I first vertigo yeah it's vertigo and I knew that if my ass actually failed like it wasn't if I was gonna get them. Iran have though is just to compliment I'm out there widows can happen so as it was terrifying of the time it's. Absolutely amazing I understand how you get water to sell a nice how you bring enough food for you for the calories you're burning. As are making this trip is something I don't understand so that's horrendous start when we come on back. How you did it what you ate. Nature that you ran into that's next as we wrap up an exclusive. Awesome interview with Chris Byrd each one of the most interest in cats in the world. More next on 95 cent in the game. I wish we had a ton more time we've got about seven and a half minutes eight minutes left here Chris and we have an awful lot to get through. Including how cool erecting right now acknowledge that you were just involved in a car crash on your way here raising so. Africans are officially more laid back and us a 100%. You gotta really anywhere then and yet who got a quote from the limited diplomatic immunity you have to. Chris birdies is our guest Chris is an unbelievable. Waterman one of the greatest in the world. He served in one mavericks he then took it upon himself. To make it cross Atlantic journey on a paddle board Chris how did you have enough food. I'm on the board to eat what were you eating I must admit I'm sick of it are you.
