ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode the guys sit & talk about acid rain, where did it go? They also discuss the infamous "Bobby Bonilla Day" & other crazy stories of athletes making MILLIONS for a minimum days of work. 

This is the motivation. Welcome to another episode of You git those coast to coast, the podcast that talks about what's important on and off the mats. We've been super lucky recently to have some freaking awesome interview interviews the last couple weeks. Thank my cousin. He's been working extra hard on that behind the scenes and we're working to get on some more pretty soon. But today we're going to do another edition of Fort these with friends who got some fire ass topics. We're just going to blow your freaking mind today, I promise you. I got Mr Inkuadados Jiujitsu himself, fonzo cousin and joining us. What's going on players? Not Too much, man, is Friday night. Feeling hell good. Now Work Week is done. About to chill and get into some cool ass topics. I'm happy to be here with you, guys, and hope all the listeners out there will enjoy the show for today. And how you doing, man? I know you you're traveling, but how how you been? How you doing? I'm doing a right man. I'm doing a right could be better, but I'm trying to think of all the positives to keep me going. I'm out here in the middle of nowhere, just entered back into California, waiting for Saliens to come and give me a visit as I'm driving back home. But yeah, I'm doing good, man, doing good, looking forward to game. What you guys got to talk about? All right, all right, we care for we here a full yeah, well do, but you frank, I'm doing great, man. It's and of the week I got. I'm talking to you, guys. It's a it's a good night, it's a great night. I'm ready to get into these stories, all right, so I guess I'll go off first, man, and I mean my stories just it's just it's out of curiosity more than anything, just like most of my stories are. Some I just started reading in I'm like, you know what, I wonder what the fuck with that was about, because I don't know about you, you probably remember this topic, but when I was a kid it was like a it was fucking everywhere, right, like if you graduate, it doesn't make you gay. Bro. Just that that question, that one. No, no, no, I resolved that long ago, but thanks all, remindered. Thank you. Nobody appreciated nowhere. Nice, all right, cool, all right, now dude, but this is this topic is. Do you guys remember hearing about acid rain and shit back in the S and S S? Well, I remember that shit with terrorize my dreams. Do you remember that at so anyways, I remember that Shit when I was a kid and you know, some of you out there listening might remember this shit from when you were younger. And if you're relatively young, you might not remember any of this shit because it they just stopped talking about it, like it just seemed like all of a sudden, like people just like forgot about fucking acid rain that was supposed to ruin our fucking lives. And actually remember, did you ever watch this Movie Double Dragon? They made into like a live action movie? You remember the Video Game Double Dragon? Yeah, I used to play the shit out of it. Yeah, that she was fucking dope. But do you remember the movie, The live action movie that they made? I remember that it was awful and it made me cry, so I didn't finish watching it. Was Terrible. It was terrible, but I loved watching it when I was a kid. I don't don't know. But anyways, Dude, in that movie, they they it's funny because like they live in like a like a like a society in the future whatever, and like one of the things that they have to do is protect themselves against acid rain and like, you know, people's like like clothes melt and shit and like they can't go out because it's fucking it's like it's raining and the rain is all fucking the CIDIK and shit. So I thought it was hilarious and that actually kind of freaking out. Wasn't kid, and it's just it's hilarious now to look back into it, because like nobody gives a shit about ascid rate anymore. So I...

...started thinking, like what the fuck happened to acid rain? Right? So, to those of you who don't know, acid rain was a phenomena that was like a big deal like throughout the S. really hit his peak and the s and s and what really was it was like a environmental issue where like really the rain was actually becoming a cidy, just like old sounds. And the way, the reason why why it was becoming acidic was because, as of like pollution is shit in the air. So just kind of give you a little background. It's to like what fucking acid is and how it you know why it's a big deal. So there's a Ph scale, right, and not to get to fucking sciency or whatever, but like regular, like purified water, is neutral and that's like, you know, it doesn't it's not acidic as not, meaning Yep, it's seven, like that's purified water. So that's perfectly balance, meaning if you drink it, you're cool, nothing's going to happen to you and to a degree, like to the right or left, you're pretty much okay, you know, like drinking it or touching here whatever. For example, frank what do you think ocean waters at in terms of in the Ph scale? By the way, the Ph scales between zero and fourteen. So seven is honean water. That's right in the middle. What do you think ocean water is probably like that? Is it like a ten or something like that? Close it's at it's an eight, so it's like right right next to pure water. So it's pretty close, okay. And then you know, at the way far end of the base scale, on the other side of acid, opposite of acid, is the fourteen, and that'd be like drain. No, that shit is fucking like nasty, some shit right, nasty shit. And then on the very low end on the severe acidic scale. On the zero side you have like hydrochloric acid, which is like will fucking Burn Shit, you know. I mean like if you put your finger and hid or chloric acid, it's fucking melt in your skin off. So lemon juice, for example, which is pretty acidic, is like a to like too ish. Yeah Right, it's pretty acidic, like if you I don't know if you yeah. So, anyways. So normal rain is slightly acidic, like regular rain at a regular day it's like it's a five. So it's like more acidic than pure water, but not too bad. Like five is still okay. Like if you drank drank a five, you're fine. Like you can drink lemon juice and you'll be fine, you know, or a little bit, but you don't want to drink lemon juice all the fucking time. You can put lemon juice on your talkey's you'll still be you'll be all right right, but you don't want to drink a gallon of lemon juice. That's so that's a bad idea. Yep. So, anyways, acid rain at at the time I at, it's like height in the S and s was like lemon juice type. Dude. It was like between one point eight in like two point three. That's how bad the assid but fad on is. Yeah, yeah, so what it was doing back then, dude. So what it was doing back then? It was like it was like fucking up like legs and streams and Shit, like fish for dying. Like there was a stream where like normally, like fishermen would go in and catch like full you could catch like a hundred salmon in a single day off that stream, right and when that B when that water became polluted, muffuckers weren't even matching. Twelve a year. Done. Yeah, yeah, that's so, man. That's all. Yeah. So, so that's how bad it was and what was causing that? That the the acid rain, was like the pollution, and mainly was three types of pollution and it they all came from the same thing, like coal burning, like those factories and shit that burn coal for fuel. One of them was Cootwo, which we still deal with now, carbon dioxide, but there was other two, two other pollutanants in that in that time night,...

...nitric acid and sulfuric acid. Those are other pollutants that were releasing to the into the atmosphere. So you know, why was that going on? Well, fuck, man, like people need Shit, you know. I mean we need power, we need clothes, we need cars, we need so that all comes from burning all these all these this cold whatever that we need for the power. And of course, like, you know, for fucking over a hundred years, like nobody gave a shit about acid reign because it wasn't really a big deal for a long time. But all of a sudden became a big deal, which is started hearing in the news and all the stuff. So, you know, people started taking the seriously and like scientists Aart, taking seriously or like. So what do we do? How do we handle that? And at first, you know, you had politicians who weren't too happy about deep regulating this coal and they're like now we're going to you know, we're making money right, our economy strong and all this other shit, and we if we do this and we're going to go, you know, like like coal companies going to go bankrupt and people are going to lose your jobs, and kind of the same shit that we're dealing with now with different climate issues. Right, not to get to controversial or anything, but you know, same arguments that were hearing now about certain other things. But you know what's kind of worth noting here is that GW Bush. So you know the recent George with George Bar Senior at the dad ended up signing. Oh yeah, old Bush. Yeah, he ended up signing the clean or updating the clean, clean air act, which made incentives or coal companies to clean up their their coal burning. So like it didn't close them down, but like, for example, they like they switch to different types of coal that didn't produce the nitric and sulfuric acid that were the most harmful. They also put filters on their fucking and on their smoke stacks or whatever, so that the the nittr niche nitric acid and the sulfuric acid and the COT would be trapped in that filter and then they could just dispose of it without being released into the air and Shit. So all that stuff started happening. There was like Canada and in the United States had an agreement to reduce the season missions and she like that. So, like, there was all kinds of like, and it wasn't just the United States, it was other countries too that kind of made similar adjustments and over time it just fucking work, Dude. So that's really why you stopped hearing about it. fucking work on the way. Yeah, so you know, right now, like our rain water is not bad, like, yeah, there's still a shit ton of fucking coot right because we haven't really dealt with that situation, but it's not in the clouds anymore. It's not in the atmosphere. I mean not that it's nitric a nitric acid in this fuercas like those aren't there anymore to produce yes, of rain. So that's the reason why I went away. That's the reason why I went like it wasn't just like it was a fat and people just got tired of talking about it. Like we actually did something about it, not even as a country, but like the whole most of the world did something about it, and they're like okay, it's cool, it's done, it's deal with, you know. I mean. So to me that kind of goes to show like yeah, there's always gonna be pushback for certain things, but look, in the end we can get shit done and stuff does work and we don't go bankrupt. You know, people don't necessarily have to lose your jobs over she like this and we can just make shit happen, you know. So I thought that was kind of cool. It was kind of like a little positive, you know, positive, little spin on my childhood. You know, we spend so much time fucking freaking out about it, but in the end she got done. Nice Dude. I remember as a kid, they it would come on the news and they would like Chokee, like these little kids that are playing outside and ask and it...

...started raining and it started burning their hair out. Or they would show her that, yeah, like statues that were like get all burnt up and messed up because they're like literally melting from the rain. Yeah, and that's what I'm telling you. That's why I like that. That movie, the dippl Dragon Movie, like it's a lame ass move, but I remember that scene. We're like the reporters talking about acid rain and people are running to take cover because, yeah, it's burning their umbrellas and you know, it just it's crazy because I remember being freaked out about that Shit. Yeah, I guess we solved it. Hi. It was awful, man. Yeah, but yeah, then again, I remember being but then again, I remember being freaked out about quicksand to so I don't know, maybe it's not a it wasn't as big of a deal as as if we thought it wasn't. Kids or you stop watch they maybe we solve quicksand to it's gone a little global warming. Okay, just right up all the weeks. HMM, exactly. Okay, it's not buscus enough for this type of humidity. Well, the barometer gets to forty percent. Dude, that the media chlorian count dropped low. Keep going, man, you got to school me. I don't know anything. You know, man, let me know. All Right, I'm yeah, I mean a foolish. I just I just thought that was that was kind of interesting, dude, just because, like, like, you know, it was one of those things that, when you're a kid like you don't quite understand what it means, but you hear everybody talking about it and you're like, okay, is this some shit that I'm going to have to worry about when I'm growing up and stuff, and you know, and to an extent, I guess yeah, it was. It was real. Dude. That's literally like evidence for you to be like nobody knows Shit Right, adult don't know nothing. When I was a kid, I used to think my mom and dad knew everything. They still don't know, Dude. They're doing all kinds of crazy stuff over there. Who knows? But nobody knows down that's true, man, crazy miles an hour through outer space, hoping we don't run into other rocks and hoping that the aliens that might be probing cousin and in the desert right now don't come and probe the rest of us. Whoo yeah, and if they do, at least it give us free cable, just say whole or free Wi fi. Dude, you imagine what if I, like, read a book? What kind of Lame Ass Aliens Are you? Yeah, seriously, sorry, aunt man, I hope you're having a good time. Remember, just just let it be fool, just relax, relax, yeah, all right, and then get some beef jerky afterwards. All right, man, that's my topic. What about you? What do you got? All right, all right, AH, dude, dude, Dude. Everybody out there listening right now, let me tell you I have been doing some major research recently for this story. Just something that you know. Every once in a while, you know funds. I like to read just random shit. You know, everyone's like, oh, I like to read the certain author or I only like to read these murder mysteries, or I only look at Hustler only the May issue because that's when they do the milk and cookies at issue. I don't know, whatever, I'm all over the place. I'm all over the place and as real. And recently I started reading books about athletes that bar life vampires close, but not on the day, only in the daytime. Okay, only in the daytime. All right. So athletes are what athletes that were at the highest level, but they were basically like you could almost say where they were...

...even really there, but they benefited from everything that comes along with that. Does that make sense? o? So, for example, I got a book that was written by a guy named Paul Shirley and it's called can I keep my jersey? And I got about halfway through it when I realized, fuck man, this is just his fucking diary and he is boring. So that literally wrote like a journal for this is what I did today, and Blah, blah, and there's there was some cool part, you know, for example, he basically so what this guy is is he's a he was a basketball player, journeyman. So he played like he had like a couple ten day contracts in the NBA. He played in Spain, he played in Greece, he played in Russia, he played for the United States, like in the CBA, he played for the early g league game at the time when he was playing, I think it was called the MBA Development League. A lot of his stories you, I mean, I'm not going to see you can really relate to them. But he did come to frozen because back in the day Fresno had a team that was part of. I don't know what they were, but he played against them and he just talks about this how like, basically, dude, he's getting paid to play basketball, you know what I mean? And he would make like one NBA contect, like one ten day contract, was like Tenzero Bucks, dude, or Twentyzero or something like that. When are you going to make that kind of money in ten days just playing basketball? And then, on top of that, when they would go on the road, he would get to beat like they would. He would be in the hotel's, they would feed them, he would get all the doctor stuff, you know. And then from there I started reading another book called don't put me in coach, and it was written by a guy named Mark Titus, and Mark Titis is a white guy that ended up playing basketball off for Ohio state, like in the early to mid s when they were Badass and actually won a national championship. So this guy was like the backup to Greg Golden, who was like national player of the year and VP the year they won the the National Championship. I mean they were up. They had I mean, out of the ten or twelve players that were on that team, I think like six of them ended up going into the NBA. Yeah, and so this guy basically just like he just wrote the bench, but while he wrote the bench he created a website. And this was like in the early days of twitter and all that. So but he had like, I don't know, a hundred thousand followers. So every college he would go to there would be people there that long he would know and he just hold on. Let me guess, he was selling his feet picks. He was selling Bethels in a jaw even better. Okay, continue my back. He was ahead of his time, but this guy would have this guy was just having a good time. He kind of figured it out early on. He's like Hey, I'm not going to get no kind of playing time. But I got a I'm at a good school, I got a good major, I'm going to get a good job when I'm done with this and in the meantime I get to do this. I get to be around all these high level athletes, these cool coaches, I get to travel to all these schools and and whatever, and if we blow teams out, Hey, I get to play in garbage time. And that's what it was. So he kind of accept did the role and this book, that book was a whole lot better. So as that was happening, I had this crazy conversation with some some co workers. And Dude, you know me, Fondo, there is freaking nothing. There is no one in this whole world that is more down to get paid for the least amount of work possible then your homeboy right here. You know that. Remember, and I'm sure that's everybody. You don't mean everyboody wants to win the Latto. Everybody wants to...

...hit a Jackpot at the casino. I mean whatever. You remember last year when we first started s and I talked about the SILMA brothers and they took on the NBA and they yeah all kind of money because they did that. TV deal when nobody even knew. Think thought that it was going to be anything big, and it turned out to be worth millions and they made a shitload of money basically for doing nothing but being good at right people at yeah, it was cool, right, that's a great feare. They basically got paid because they were good at paperwork and they hustled the NBA and got paid. Well, today I'm on that same kind of trail. You know, I'm talking about individuals that played at the highest level, but Nett didn't necessarily make a big splash. They may have had some playing time, but it might have been slimmed to none and they still got all the benefits from it. And the reason I started talking about this was because I mentioned my co workers and we started talking about a quarterback that is actually the backup for the San Diego chargers. I don't know if you know this guy. I'll funds. I'm not. I know you're not a big football fan, but there's a quarterback named Chase Daniels. I want to let me look up room fully quick how long he's been in the NFL, but he's been in the NFL for a long time. Dude. Well, while you're looking at me. Who Does thirty five years old? He's thirty five years old. He's been in the league since two thousand and nine, Oh fuck, and a long asses made. Yeah, thirteen years in the league. Dude, he needs made forty million dollars. Fuck as a backup, as a backup. He just signed a deal to be the he just signed a backup deal to be the quarterback for the chargers. And let me tell you, dude, the quarterback for the chargers is a stud and he's super young. I think this is going to be like his thirty year in the League. So the chances of him getting injured, I would say they're not as hot. They're not as high as like an older quarterback, but I would say there they are kind of hot, relatively higher, because he does run around a little bit more, but he's super young. Dude. Will be ready to go the next week. This guy might have to play like three minutes of a game or the last five minutes. You know. Let me let me share some steps here. I just mentioned he made. Did I say that he made forty million dollars in thirteen years in the NFL? Is a backup? Yep. Let me break this down to you, dude. Let me, let me share your d stats with you. Two hundred and sixty one attempts in thirteen years, one hundred and seventy eight completions, one thousand six hundred and ninety four passing yards, eight touchdowns. Fuck, and thirteen years. Think about Brad Dude. Forty million dollars doesn't one eight to one quarterback, Dude. Next, five million much all that touchdown? What's that? I was going to say. The stats look like maybe like a star quarterbacks one year. Almost. Um. No, no, that's awesome. Eight touchdowns in one year. No Way, Dude. Pay Many through life. I mean there's some guys that throw like I don't know what the record is, but it's either like in the low s or upper S. Holy Shit. Okay, so shows how much I know about in the S. you're decent, I would say. You know. So eight touchdowns in thirteen years. You're fucking horrible. I don't know why you're in the league, but hey, congratulations for making forty million dollars in thirteen years. That just blew my mind.

Dude. Yeah, no shit. So here's the end that like. Oh, go, go ahead. I was just going to say that no, no, that that's kind of cool, though. I mean like I mean, well, kind of cool, not but cool. What I'm thinking about cool is that's cool about that story is you know what I mean. Like you said earlier, like you, I'm kind of exactly you. Kind of accept who you are right like, Hey, I'm not going to be a starter, like I'm not going to be great at this. For Sae there's people were better than me. I'm going to accept it. I'm going to do something else, because it's cool that I'm getting joe the experience, but I'm not built for greatness in this one area. Maybe I'm built for great as some else. Yeah, imagine if you, if Dana White can tinue, was like, Hey, I'll fondo. I want you to permanently be the backup for the whatever weight class you want, and we're going to pay you millions of dollars and all you got to do is kind of train if you want, because really you're the backup and you only got ahead and play if you're if you're the last resort, we might even get somebody else before you. Would you not to end? By the way, you're going to have to be at every UFC event. In the best seat in the house and you're going to get seen by our doctors and you're going to get all the benefits of being the champ. Basically, would you not take that? I would say one of my sign we can get and Diego. Yes, I would say, where do I sign? Exactly, exactly, Dude. Yep. So check this out. So then, that that made me that mad. That got me looking at other guys that might have done something similar to this and I and I looked up. I don't know if you know this, the raiders drafted a quarterback back in the early too, like a mint to late two thousand and seven actually, Jamarcus Russell. Jamarcus Russell came out of college, signed a major deal. Was a number one draft pick, I want to say he signed a six year, sixty one million dollar deal with the raiders. Of that sixty one million, thirty two million was Garrongti to. As soon as he signed his name, boom, thirty two millions to his bank account. He turned into a giant piece of dump dude. He gained all kinds of way. He was lazy, he never wanted to practice. Let me give you, let me share some stats with you. Here. In three years with the raiders, he was three, he completed three hundred and fifty four passes out of six hundred and eighty. So that's a little over fifty percent. Four thousand eight hundred and three yards. Dude, that's already more than in three years. He did more than Chase Daniels, so that's good, I guess right day. Yeah, yeah, eighteen touchdowns, twenty three interceptions. I did the math here. Eight at eighteen touchdowns. That's one point seven million dollars. A touchdown at four thousand eight hundred and three yards. That's get he got paid six thousand six hundred and sixty two dollars and fifty cents per yard. Her interception. That's one point three million dollars. All right. There's a story that one of his Lineman said on a on a radio interview a while back. He said that the coaches thought that he wasn't watching game tape to for to help him get better. So they gave him a bunch of tapes and they put then they were blink and they asked him the next day, did you watch those tapes? And he was like, Oh, yeah, super good, bleas, I'll be right day dude, what Damn and when can you be how?...

Why does that sound like something or old boss would tell us when we were used to work at the shop, or which you did it six times, did you guys training video? Yeah, give me that chain, good man, I got that kid chains already. All right, cool. Two more players I want to share with you one day. SAGNA, die up. I've never heard of this dude and I couldsider myself an NBA Fan, a junky on yea even. Hey, you are you are gree up there. Yeah, yeah, I like to watch. I like to watch, Dude. This guy played twelve seasons in the NBA. Two Thousand and one, two through two thousand and thirteen, he played six hundred and one games. He played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, The Dallas Mavericks, the New Jersey Nets and, I want to say, the Charlotte bobcats. And six hundred one games he averaged two points per game, three point seven rebounds and zero point four assists per game. Career earnings. Are you ready for this? Yeah, Forty seven million, twenty four thousand and eighty four. Jesus, Dude, you hell man. He literally did nothing but sit the bench for twelve years, amazing me. But there's somebody that has it even better and even smarter, and this is going to be the last one I'm going to share with you. Guys, have you ever heard of Bobby Bonia or Bobby Bonia Day? Look that up. What's Bob? When is Bobby Bony a day? I think it's like July first. That sounds that sounds familiar. I campit pointed though. So Bobby Bonilla. It was a player, an outfielder that played what I remember him as a kid. He was a Badass player, not the best, but he was Badass at at the top. When he was at the top of his game, he was playing with the Pittsburgh pirates and Barry Bonds, before steroids, when Barry Bonds was little. Yeah, and at and after being so good with the pirates, he worked out. At the time was a freaking like outer space deal with the New York mets. In one thousand nine hundred and ninety one he signed a five year contract with the mets that was worth twenty nine million dollars. And at that time people are like what, that fool set for life here, you know? But and he is, but I mean twenty one million dollars. Now that that's not like that's a lot of money, you know what I mean? Yeah, but it's not a hundred million or five like I mean a rod yeah, signed like a hundred and fifty million dollar deal, right, Aaron Rodgers paid fifty million in one year. You know. Yeah. So what ended up happening was he kind of fizzled out. He signed that giant contract and he just he wasn't the same. You know, he's got all that money, he was probably getting a little comfortable and whatnot, and the mets were like, dude, we got to get rid of this fool. What are we going to do? So they ended up trading him and they worked out a deal with him. They owe they ended up owing him five point nine million from what was left of the twenty nine million by the time they traded him, and they worked out a deal to push that back as far as they could. And they're like a bobby, this is the this is still like in the mid to late s when they were supposed to owe him this five point nine million, and they said, hey, bobby, you know what, would you allow us to not pay you anything until two thousand and eleven and then, starting in two thousand and eleven, we will give you one point two million dollars every year with eight percent interest until...

...you turn seventy two. Shit. By the way, he's only fifty nine. He's currently fifty nine, but every July first this fool gets a check for one point two mill boom, boom, boom. Why? Signing that contract way back in like nineteen ninety one and he's still benefiting from that. Dude. How freaking smart is that guy? Man, I can say is man, if I was getting one point two mill every July, I don't know, I don't know. Me Dead, I'll fun you be, I probably would. You not paying right had be dead. Yeah, yeah, I'd be waiting for that, for that one point two mil, just to hit you like all right, you would be waiting for July first, like a crackhead waiting or like a guy at the Strip carb waiting for midnight to hit so we can start using his ATM again, for I'd be IInd remember, right right outside, right outside, right outside of gold diggers. I'm good for it. It's midnight, I got it. Let me in midnight, right around the corner. You check this out. So Bobby Bonia has thirteen years left of getting paid one point two mill. That in just these next thirteen years. That's fifteen point six mill. Dude. It's just these thirteen years. So Count Two Thousand and eleven until he turned seventy two. Dude. This guy is a genius. I hope he's hell, any know, man's into and make it to seventy two. so He's already got a he's already got ten years of one point two. So that's ten meal. He already made over ten mill and now, on top of that he's going to get what I just mentioned. Nice thirteen are when he's yeah, twit. Can't remember now what were going to say. I was just going to say that fifteen point six mill gene fifty point six. Okay, yeah, well, I was gonna say. Man, this this also begs another question. Man. It's like you got is everybody laying a bad franchise, these these big franchises, got so much money to pay people to do nothing, man, that it's ridiculous. Almost makes me feel fuck like, Dude. What am I doing? What am I doing? Busting my ass every day? Her where's? Yeah, he's motherfuckers gets to just chill I know, I mean, I know, but here's the thing. Not to see that didn't did they didn't work hard at one point, right, like there's a reason why they're there. Oh No, no, exactly, exactly. And that's another thing that I didn't mention. These guys were the cream of the crop up until that level, so all the way through high school, all the way at most. Most of all, I mean I'm sure the Bobby Bonia, that the the NBA player that I just mentioned, who Jamarcus Russell? Mean, Jamarkus Russell was a Badass college player, you know what I mean? He was a study in college, but when he got to the pros, he just these guys just fizzled out. But they did do work, a lot of work and a lot of good work to get to that level. So let me let me put that out there. I'm not completely blow and and I agree. Saying agree, man, like it does take work. And you know, of course, been any any any person can't get anywhere with talent alone. You know, I mean, like you got it, you got to put in some work.

Sometimes it's cool just to enjoy the ride, like you just said here, any like were were, you're there. You. Does everybody have to be great? Do we all have to be great?
