“I just need a break” is something we hear a lot as coaches, but a break from what? Today we look at your life in triathlon and things that can supplement, compliment and keep the passion alive. There is a trap of being ALL IN or ALL OUT. The road is in the middle. The middle way. Taking a break doesn't mean nothing and we always have to do SOMETHING, so what is that something that makes you feel happy and alive? We all get trapped in ultimatums, but (and especially this time of year) you always have options. Today is about finding them and understanding how you can be a triathlete without feeling the pressure of it all the time. When we are grounded in our body and mind or decisions make more sense. Mike also tells the story about his first car. Topics: Jonesing to workout Resistance to doing things… anything When is the right time of day for your workouts? Performing at your best Full Time Coaching challenges Being grounded and rooted in your daily process Biggest questions we get this time of year “I need a break” but want to stay positive Parenting, work, triathlon “I'm sorry for not working out, coach.” Back and white thinking You never want to write it ALL off Why we tend to talk about football off air You have to find SOMETHING What do you plan so that the same things don't keep happening? Wha did you fall short on last year? Lazy and inconsistent Exercise frequently Find something that supplements triathlon Assumption: You Like Triathlon Mike's First Car Think young When the goal in life is to keep feeling younger You can't be all in or all out Comparing yourself to social media Coaching Inquiries: Mike Tarrolly - CrushingIron@gmail.com Robbie Bruce - C26Coach@gmail.com www.C26Triathlon.com www.crushingiron.com
Hour 2 - Gresh and Andy Hart were joined by Matthew Judon, Patriots linebacker, to discuss the team's defensive performance in yesterday's win over the Colts.

In a supersized episode, Mike and Dan recap the Islanders' games against Blackhawks, Blues and Red Wings, and Dan speaks with former WHA & NHL linesman Ron Asselstine about his career and memories of the dynasty Isles. First, they look at big wins in Chicago and St. Louis that extended the team's winning streak to five, as well as the disappointing shutout loss in Detroit that ended the run. They talk about players that stood out in each game, how the Islanders have kept pace in their division early in the season and how very few people have noticed because of other NHL goings on (as usual). In the second half, Dan speaks with Ron Asselstine, who spent 25 years as a pro hockey linesman. Throughout those two-plus decades, he's collected a million stories, many about the great Islanders teams of the early '80s. From Bossy's 50-in-50 game to Clark Gillies rearranging Ed Hospodar's face, Ron was on the ice for many signature moments for the franchise. He also discusses the wild days of the WHA, some funny on-ice conversations and the time he had to tackle a fan who had run onto the ice. It's a great chat with a guy who's seen just about everything.

HENRY Well, no, but... don't you have any other family? EDEN [mumbled] Not anywhere around here. HENRY [sincere] That sucks! EDEN Look, I'm not supposed to say anything, but my dad... He [whispers importantly] he works for the government. Top secret. HENRY Seriously? EDEN Uh-huh! So he can't always control when he'll be back. HENRY Why would he - why would you even trust me? EDEN You won't get paid until after the two weeks is up. Besides... I'm a pretty good cook? HENRY Okay, but I have to be able to tell my mom. She'll worry if I don't get home. EDEN You live with your mom? But you're like a grownup. That's weird. HENRY Why do you think I don't have a real job?

I was just telling your father that your school has raised issues about your father's involvement-- EDEN Why? He emails them all the time. They understand how busy he is. SHERMAN We still have to take it under advisement. Now, off the record, and with the understanding that you, sir, are a fairly wealthy man, I might ask why you haven't engaged a nanny or other similar household staff-- EDEN [QUIET, prompting] DAD! HENRY [angry] What business is it of yours, lady? SHERMAN Perhaps you should step out and leave us alone again, dear. EDEN No. I may be too young for my opinion to count, but I want to hear what you plan to do to me. We don't need anyone to look after the house. I can do that. SHERMAN But you shouldn't have to - you are a child, dear, and you have better things to do. EDEN Like what? Play Xbox and get fat? MUSIC SCENE 9 – AFTER SHE LEAVES SOUND FRONT DOOR SHUTS, LOCKS HENRY You have 20 million dollars? EDEN And a half. Not like I can spend it. They don't trust me - that's why they call it a trust fund.

You have anything to drink around this place? CALLANDRA [rolls eyes] Oh, yes. That would look terrible good to Ms. Sherman, wouldn't it? HENRY I'm going out for a while. Don't worry - I'll sneak out the back. I'm good at THAT. MUSIC SCENE 10 – HENRY'S HOME SOUND DOOR OPENS, MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND HENRY [sigh, then calling] Hey mom! MOM [bleary drunk] Baby?

MOM [sarcastic] Such a good boy. You gon' expect me to bail you out again? You need to get you some better friends, baby. HENRY I'm not a baby, mom. I'm thirty-five. MOM You'll always be my baby, Henry, won't you? You know how much I count on you. How much it hurts every time you been taken away from me. What would I do if you were in jail?

HENRY I didn't hear anything, if that's what you're worried about. EDEN Duh. Computer chatting. HENRY Typing. Right. I'm not much for the whole computer thing. EDEN That could be awkward, if Ms. Sherman decides to quiz you on what you do for a living. Dad's a programmer. HENRY For the government? EDEN [scornful] No! [realizing] Oh, I mean... uh... he's a programmer for real, but he doesn't program for them. HENRY [suspicious] Can I type something to him? EDEN Sure. SOUND CHAIR SHIFTS, CLUMSY, SLOW TYPING EDEN Is this a secret, or can I type it for you? HENRY Yeah, go on - at this rate I'll be here all night just to say Hi. Um... [thinking] Mister... uh ... can I call him Ethan? EDEN [responding to dad] All right. He says let's turn on the microphone. SOUND CLICK EDEN Now you can just talk. He still has to type, though. His mike is broken. HENRY I don't know you, so maybe I'm not the one who should be saying this, but - here goes. Dude, leaving your kid alone makes you a bad dad. So what if the government needs you! EDEN You're... serious? HENRY Hell yeah. You're gonna grow up robbing banks and stuff. EDEN Hmm. He says, just because your dad was a deadbeat, doesn't mean -- HENRY What the hell do you think you know? EDEN He says-- HENRY I can see what he says. Background check, my ass! EDEN I told you he's a computer guy. HENRY Fine. You need to take care of-- EDEN Don't tell me how to raise my daughter. Oh, and he says "watch"-- SOUND [some CCTV video comes on the computer] HENRY [shocked] How did he get that? EDEN Is that you? Breaking into a building? Wow. Wait, is that the museum? HENRY So that's your way of keeping me in line? EDEN Are you the one who stole the Cellini vase? HENRY I plead the fifth. [angry sigh] Fine. I'll do my two weeks, and then I am the hell out of here. EDEN [angry] Very well, you worthless wretch! HENRY What? EDEN [innocent] Just what he said. MUSIC SCENE 12 – RUDE AWAKENING SOUND POUNDING ON DOOR CALLANDRA Mr. Anderson!! HENRY [sleepy] What?

MUSIC SCENE 13 – CPS AGAIN SOUND DOOR OPENS SLOWLY HENRY [shaky] Yes? SHERMAN Took you long enough. HENRY I was in the shower. Nearly killed myself slipping when I came down the stairs. SHERMAN Are you going to ask me in? HENRY You might have heard the scream. SHERMAN No. [hinting to let her in] It is rather chilly out here. HENRY [sigh] Very well. SOUND THEY GO IN, HE FAKES A LIMP CALLANDRA You watch out for that one! HENRY Shh! FREDERICK She can't hear us unless we want her to. SHERMAN I expect Eden is at school right now? HENRY She's a very good student. SHERMAN [disdainful] B plus. HENRY That ain't nothing to sneeze at, lady! SOUND SITS SHERMAN But we both know she could do better. HENRY What makes you think that? SHERMAN You could get her tutors. HENRY Why? She's real smart. FREDERICK You tell her! But you might try using proper grammar. SHERMAN There's so many things your money could do for your daughter. HENRY I'd rather let her be herself. CALLANDRA Oh, that's touching, that is. SHERMAN You could send her to private school. My own son Garth is in private school. HENRY [faltering] She has ...friends.... here. SHERMAN [hinting] A very expensive private school. HENRY You recruiting or something? I ain't making any decisions behind my kid's back. SHERMAN You could pay me to leave you alone. HENRY She wants to stay -- WHAT? CALLANDRA Horrors! FREDERIC Bezom! SHERMAN You must understand, Mr. Anderson, just how poorly compensated we civil servants are these days. What a completely thankless job we do. HENRY You really just hit me up for money? SHERMAN And how particularly expensive a really good school is. HENRY [incredulous] Money. You're asking for money. SHERMAN Of course. HENRY You're a skanky money-grubbing ho! FREDERIC Filth straight from the bowels of satan's own thrice-crowned hounds of hell! SHERMAN Language! [evil nice again] You have plenty of money. I've looked into your financials. Not just Eden's little trust fund, but liquid assets as well. HENRY That's blackmail! SHERMAN Technically, it's extortion. So far. Extortion is getting money with a threat of something yet to come. HENRY It's still illegal. CALLANDRA Oh, horrors! SHERMAN Blackmail, on the other hand, is getting money with the threat of revealing something from the past. Like your criminal record? HENRY My... [confused] what? SHERMAN Mr. Anderson, I have no wish to go into detail, but do you really think I would come here with just the might of CPS behind me? HENRY Maybe. SHERMAN No. I have something concrete on you. HENRY Doesn't ring a bell. [chuckles lamely] Criminal record? Me? [laughs] SHERMAN Do the words 1987 and dot com mean anything to you? HENRY But I was just-- ["a kid", but he cuts off] SHERMAN Using an assumed name? You're very lucky no one thought to cross-reference your fingerprints before, but once they do what I did... HENRY Oh, crap. SHERMAN I'm in no hurry. I'd be happy to take a little something up front, and then a larger payment by the end of the week, perhaps? HENRY I'll ...see what I have lying around. MUSIC SCENE 14 – CHAT WITH DAD SOUND DOOR OPENS, FEET STORM IN HENRY Is your mike on, Mr. Anderson? SOUND COMPUTER BEEP HENRY Good. Cause I don't know jack about how to work these things. SOUND COMPUTER BOOP HENRY You heard what happened? How? SOUND BOOP HENRY I didn't even notice a computer in the living room. SOUND BOOP HENRY Huh? Which button?

ETHAN Bank after. HENRY What's all this crap that witch was talking about, anyway? ETHAN No time. Bank today. Take three thousand dollars-- HENRY I can't pass for you at a damn bank! I can't sign your name! ETHAN Account in your name. Use your own I-D. HENRY What? In my name? What makes you think I won't just walk off... [back on topic] Second - why three thousand? She won't settle for just three-- ETHAN Three thousand will pay off her car. HENRY Damn. You really can find out anything, can't you? MUSIC SCENE 15 – HENRY HOME SOUND DOOR OPENS, MOM'S HOUSE.

Where's my TV? MOM Mine was ...uh...on the fritz, so I moved yours in here. HENRY You did? MOM I had help. HENRY You forgot to pay, didn't you? MOM That is no way to talk to your mother! Besides, if you weren't gone all the time, I wouldn't have such a problem. You know I never was good with money. HENRY Yeah. MOM When did you say you'd get paid for this new job you got? MUSIC SCENE 16 – DINNER WITH EDEN SOUND DINNER NOISES HENRY You made this? EDEN [sullen] Yeah. HENRY It's pretty good. EDEN Should be. Been cooking since I was [Callandra's accent] "just a wee thing". [change of tone, sullen] You were gone all day. Again. HENRY I came back. EDEN Well, duh. We're paying you to be here. HENRY Are the ghosts joining us? EDEN [still sullen] Frederic gets too jumpy around food, and Callandra "doesna feel tis proper." MOMENT OF SILENCE HENRY Are you mad at me? SOUND THUMP - VASE ON TABLE HENRY What the h---ay? You going through my room? EDEN Callandra saw you hide it. SHE's very upset with you. CALLNDRA [from off] Though it is a right pretty wee thing! HENRY I had to bring it along - mom was about to use it as an ashtray. EDEN Why do you steal? HENRY Whoa! That ain't polite to ask. EDEN It isn't polite to steal. MOMENT OF SILENCE HENRY What else am I gonna do? Shove burgers? I ain't even got a GED. Without that… well… EDEN If you're trying to convince me to stay in school, there's no point. HENRY No way! You gonna drop out? Smart kid like you – you could be any darn thing you want! EDEN Oh, please. I already have a GED. Or at least, I took the test – just to see, you know? And I've taken a few college courses on the Internet. I stay in school for the socialization. HENRY Huh? EDEN I stay in school to look normal and have friends. The work is boring as hell, but I don't want to stand out. Do you know how hard it is to manage a B+ average? HENRY [sarcastic] Never had that problem, myself. EDEN [mounting upset] I have to guess on each test what the correct percentage of answers is to get wrong. I have to dumb my writing down for essay questions. I have to-- HENRY Why? EDEN Why? HENRY Why not just say to hell with it, and let em see how smart you are? EDEN Smart kids get noticed. I can stand out when I'm older. When it's safe.

In his Pennsylvania Senate debate with Republican nominee Dr. Oz, Democrat nominee John Fetterman completely fumbled his words. Despite his poor performance, Fetterman mysteriously received over $1M HOURS after the debate. Nothing suspicious here, folks! The Phillies are back in the World Series again - is this a bad omen for the US economy? Conspiracies abound are pointing out that, every time the Phillies won the World Series, the US economy spiraled into a depression. The city has won three World Series titles, all in years prior to economic depressions: one by the Athletics in 1929 and two by the Phillies, in 1980 and 2008. Pope Francis exposes horny priests and nuns, admitting that they watch 'normal' porn too. In his speech, Francis warned, "And I'm not just talking about criminal pornography like that involving the abuse of children, that is already degeneration. But pornography that is a little 'normal.'" Wha wha wha what!?!?! It's official -- Musk has taken over Twitter. As he carried a sink while walking into the Twitter headquarters, Musk appeared giddy about the acquisition. The same cannot be said for Twitter's employees, as the 'word on the street' is that Musk plans to cut 75% of the Twitter workforce. If less Twitter workers means more free speech, more power to him.

Hello to you listening in Pascoe Vale South, Melbourne , Australia!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.Leaving Navarette in the early morning dark I was guided back to the Camino by a very old woman leaning over her geranium-potted balcony, “Peregrina, ve por ese Camino.”The albergue served no breakfast but the coffee machine produced a pretty fine double espresso for 1 Euro - enough to get going. Along the way I met up with Claire from Ireland. Together we walked on in the early morning delighted to leave the fields for a small village with an open café.I ordered an Aquarius Naranja, a bocadillo with jamon and queso - basically a big fresh crusty roll with a big slice of ham and another of cheese, plus a wedge of Spanish tortilla which is like a deep-dish, sliced potato quiche, and a chocolate croissant ... for later.Wha? I was walking 15 or more miles a day. I needed fuel. And company. Pilgrims I'd not seen for a time where there as well enjoying the sunshine. I sat with Roger from Ireland, Angela from Hong Kong and my 3 German friends all sharing breakfast and stories.When I left I still had the croissant but after a few more miles walking uphill I found myself in a vineyard which seemed like a fine place to enjoy the view and the croissant.The Camino has food for the soul and belly; some tastes better with company and some is pretty good estoy solo.Story Prompt: When have you enjoyed a meal that has lingered in your memory? Write that story! Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

What do you mean, what kind of a place is it? Why, it's an insane asylum, can't you tell? Where else would you find ...a murderer? MUSIC OLIVIA [voice over] "Not guilty by reason of insanity". A legal defense, often misused to try and get a lighter sentence for a heinous crime. And what does it really mean? In a nutshell-- SCENE 1. OFFICE RUDY --it means at the time you did what you did, you didn't - couldn't - understand what you were doing was wrong. It's a tough sell, Ed. No matter what the movies make out, most juries just don't believe-- EDMUND [cultured voice] Mr. Horton, I would prefer that you address me directly when you speak to me. RUDY Ed, this isn't funny. EDMUND There is no "Ed" here. Edmund, however, is sleeping. Mr. Horton, if you cannot bring yourself to use my name, at least-- RUDY OK, look-- SOUND rustling paper RUDY [disapproving] --Achilles - I-- EDMUND And I am not insane. Nor is Edmund. I knew perfectly well what I did was wrong. All those pretty little women. I was really doing them a favor. The world is so harsh. RUDY I-- Look, Achilles, let me talk to Ed for a while. It's his name on the docket, after all. EDMUND Very well. I shall rouse him for you. [voice changes to more lower class - after this, he speaks as Ed any time not otherwise noted] Yeah? What is it shyster? Hey! Why's my cigarette all burned down all of a sudden? MUSIC SCENE 2. COURTROOM crowd [MURMURS] SOUND gavel DOCTOR Larson Ahem. As I said, after a thorough examination, I have concluded that while Edmund is nominally the dominant persona, his alter ego Achilles was the one who actually committed... [fade out] MUSIC SCENE 3. ASYLUM HALLWAY sound footsteps on tile. jingle of keys TERRANCE Guess you think you're lucky, eh? SOUND door unlocks EDMUND And why's that? SOUND door opens inmates [AD LIB, MURMURS "IN CHARACTER" see monologues at end] EDMUND What the--? TERRANCE Your new pals, bub. As I was saying, I guess you THINK you're lucky, getting off without the death penalty and all. Come on. SOUND slow footsteps EDMUND Look mac, I thought I was gonna have a private room-- TERRANCE These are the induction cells. Once the Doc gets a handle on your syko-sees, she'll move you to someplace appropriate. EDMUND She? SOUND footsteps stop TERRANCE Sure. You saw her at your trial - Doctor Larson. She's got some big-brain new ideas about how ta deal with luniacks like yourself. SOUND keys JINGLE. TERRANCE Your room, misshur. SOUND cell unlocks, DOOR opens. EDMUND But, but there's a DAME in here. Ain't we supposed to be-- TERRANCE Funny thing about that. Dames go off the pier too. And we're overbooked in that department. She probly won't be here long. Besides, she's waaaay over there. She can't hurt you. SOUND footsteps HECTOR [fading in - urgent milktoast] --he's right. She shouldn't be in here. You don't understand the damage they can do. [fading] Women are-- RONALD [fading in, hissing whispers] ‑‑have new instructions. It is time for you to let me go. HE has declared it. [fading] My presence is required-- SOUND footsteps end, jingle of keys ROSE [fading in] --staring at me. Are you sure they can't get out? Please, would you check the locks again? [fading] I'm so afraid-- SOUND door opens and shuts. inmates [MOMENT OF SILENCE] ROSE [sigh] RONALD [normal, husky voice] Hey. New guy. Got any smokes? EDMUND What? RONALD Smokes. EDMUND Even if I did, they wouldn't let us have any matches, would they? ROSE [hard dame] Who are you kidding? You can get pretty much anything in here, just as long as you know who to ask. And HOW to ask it. EDMUND Funny, you sounded crazy a minute ago. ROSE [snort] Yeah, well. We all have our bad days... [raising voice slightly] And some never have good days, right Heck? HECTOR Wicked Jezebel. You shouldn't be here. ROSE [to Edmund] We're pretty sure that Hector there is the real McCoy. RONALD Now, now. We're ALL nuts. We must keep that in mind. ROSE Yeah, but THAT guy - he just never lets up! EDMUND But if you ain't crazy-- RONALD [chuckles] Court says we are. Even with moments of lucidity, well-- What can they do? EDMUND What if they're listening? Recording, maybe? ROSE I thought I was the one with the persecution complex. RONALD I've been trying to catch them for over a month. Nothing doing. They're just not interested. Besides, once the jury brings down the verdict, the court has to keep you locked you up until they cure you. ROSE OR you give up and confess. RONALD Oh, sure. [sarcastic] I'll just admit it was all phony, take my lumps and go to the Chair! EDMUND What if one of you decides to squeal? ROSE [laughs] Who'd take the word of a head case? HECTOR If you try and spit your fiendish poison at me, fiend, I shall find a way to defend myself! rose [disgusted sigh] I am real sick of him. RONALD He probably had a bad mother. ROSE Yeah? Well who didn't? EDMUND The guard said I'd only be in here for a little while-- RONALD Yeah. Us too. I've now been here for two months, and Rose-- ROSE Rose Connelly, p'raps you hearda me? EDMUND YOU'RE Rose Connelly? rose [pleased] Yeah. The one and only. My sister's got a scrapbook of clippings for me. She can't bring them, but she tells me all about them when she visits. RONALD Rose's been here about three weeks. Since her sentencing. EDMUND And Romeo over there? ROSE Hah! Cute. Two incredibly long days. EDMUND And...this is it? RONALD What? EDMUND This is what we get? I mean, in prison they at least get some kind of exercise and stuff. Geneva convention, and all that. ROSE Ah, it's just temporary. I guess the loony bins are all booked up right now. [giggles] Say, maybe there's a convention in town. RONALD Don't worry. We get to talk to the Doc each day, regular as clockwork. She's a sweetheart, but I bet Hector isn't making any improvements. HECTOR [matter of fact] Doctor? She's the devil! I refuse to give her the satisfaction of a single word. ROSE [derisive] "Doctor," hah! She's the one that let me get myself in here. I thought it would be real tough to fool a head shrinker, but boy was she a pushover. Always so sympathetic. So understanding. She don't deserve to be a nurse, let alone a doctor. RONALD Funny, she testified at my trial too. Hmm. Guess we both got lucky. EDMUND [absently] Yeah. Lucky. MUSIC SCENE 4. DOCTOR'S OFFICE DOCTOR Larson Edmund, I can't help you if you refuse to cooperate. EDMUND [as Achilles] I am trying my utmost, madam, but he simply refuses to converse with you. DOCTOR Larson [not batting an eye] Then let's you and I talk, Achilles. You claim that the killing was-- EDMUND [as Achilles] Killings. Let us be precise. Mercy killings, actually. [fading] I felt so kindly‑‑ MUSIC SCENE 5. CELL HALLWAY SOUND SNORING from all inmates SOUND scritching, like a mouse trying to bore through wood EDMUND [snores, then wakes, frightened] Ah! ah! What? [NOTE LOW VOICES] RONALD Shh. You'll wake the neighbors. EDMUND What was that? But that noise - it's-- RONALD I know. We call him Mortimer. EDMUND This place has mice? RONALD We haven't seen him, so we're not sure what particular type of rodentia he is, but we sure hear him. Particularly when it's quiet. EDMUND But how can I get any sleep--? RONALD You get used to it. We all get used to lots of things. HECTOR [coming awake with a scream] Aaagh! Off me, you fiend from hell! No! No! [goes on incoherently] ROSE [Wakes with a whimper] [NOTE VOICES NORMAL] EDMUND That'll take some getting used to. RONALD Yeah. MUSIC SCENE 6. DOCTOR'S OFFICE DOCTOR Larson Edmund, why don't you tell me about your mother? EDMUND [as Edmund] My mother? What - why? My mother's fine. She got nothing to do with this. DOCTOR Larson Do you love your mother? EDMUND Well, o'course. I mean, you gotta - it's just nature, ain't it? [trailing off with] No matter... what... she does t'you. DOCTOR LARSON What did your mother do, Edmund? [beat] Edmund? EDMUND [as Achilles] It's no use, doctor. He has gone into retreat. MUSIC SCENE 7. CELL HALLWAY SOUND cell block door opens INMATES [begin their various muttering] TERRANCE This way folks. Step lively now. SOUND CROWD MURMURS, LOTS OF SHUFFLING FOOTSTEPS HECTOR What is this? How dare you bring in more of THEM! Mischief! Mischief! ROSE [aside, shocked, not pretending] What's a kid doing here? MOM Tommy, now look at that - that's what crazy folks look like. KID Gee. TERRANCE [like a carnival barker] Not just any crazy folks, lady, these are all crazy murderers! CROWD Ooh! TERRANCE Each and every one of these... people... has committed the most heinous of crimes! GIRL Wow, look at that one over there, he's kinda cute--! HECTOR Harlot! Harlot! Do not approach, or I must smite thee down! GIRL What's smite - is that bad? TERRANCE Best to stay away from the bars. Now, this here is Rose Connolly, known throughout the entire state-- ROSE [seriously disturbed] Stop looking at me! How can you--? Get them outta here, wontcha? TERRANCE --For killing her husband while under the inexorable compulsion of a persecution complex. ROSE This isn't right! GIRL What's inexcorable - is that bad? MOM Killing your man - now, that ain't right! RONALD Come, come, now - leave her, she is unimportant, aha! But I - I have a message to give unto you. MUSIC - TIME PASSES SCENE 8. CELL HALLWAY SOUND CROWD WANDERS OUT, DOOR SHUTS ROSE [Breaks down] Oh! RONALD How mortifying. ROSE [sobbing] Like animals in a zoo. EDMUND I'm surprised they didn't start throwing us peanuts. RONALD I tried to get them away from you, Rose, I really did. But big headlines trumps preaching, I guess. HECTOR This should stand as a warning to you, woman! You are never alone! There is always a witness to the wicked things you do! ROSE I have had just about enough out of you! You-- noisy little weasel! We girls, we're just folks just like everybody else - you have no right to-- RONALD Rose, calm down. Shh. It's not going to help. EDMUND Yeah. For crying out loud, we've made it this far, how much worse can it get? MUSIC SCENE 9. DOCTOR'S OFFICE EDMUND [as Achilles] It was mortifying for Edmund, Doctor. I think he may have suffered a terrible setback. DOCTOR Now, the tours are conducted for very good reasons. EDMUND What, pray tell? DOCTOR It's really not something we should be discussing, but - since you are so concerned - First, it is to show the public that this facility is on the up and up - you've certainly heard of the old fashioned "asylums" where inmates were neglected and beaten? This way, nothing is hidden - so no abuses occur-- EDMUND [almost breaking character] No abuses? DOCTOR Also, it helps to make insanity seem less frightening to the general public. Most people have seen insanity only in movies - where it is so inevitably terribly destructive and dangerous. This way, they see the human side of it. EDMUND [as Achilles] I see that your intentions are admirable, but I can't help but think that a trip through the violent ward would merely reinforce the negative popular belief? DOCTOR That's why the tour through the violent ward is only for serious students of psychology. [fading] You must have misunderstood. MUSIC SCENE 10. CELL HALLWAY SOUND cell block door opens RONALD And the lord said-- ROSE Can't you make them stop staring? SOUND footsteps, door closes inmates [CONTINUE MURMURS] sound cell door opens EDMUND [Achilles] Thank you, my good man. SOUND cell door closes, footsteps. then a scuffle! HECTOR [struggling] Give it to me! TERRANCE [struggling] Leave go, you ape! HECTOR [struggling] I have to-- oof! [air knocked out of him] SOUND two footsteps. dusting off hands TERRANCE That'll show you to tangle with me. HECTOR [weak] Yes, but ... I have your gun. ROSE [scream] EDMUND Stop him Ron - you're closest! SOUND Gun shot TERRANCE Aargh! ROSE Oh no! No! HECTOR [calm and creepy] The next one is for you, Delilah! Salome! ROSE Me? I didn't do anything-- [gasps] inmates [GASP] SOUND CLICK RONALD Who put out the lights? HECTOR It was the monster - Lilith, devourer of infants! SOUND Pssst of gas EDMUND Do you... hear... [getting sleepy] Some...thing...? MUSIC - TIME PASSES SCENE 11. CELL HALLWAY EDMUND [waking up] Hmm? Wha--? RONALD [groans] ROSE [wakes with a startled gasp] EDMUND What happened? RONALD At least the lights are back on. ROSE But I don't wanna open my eyes. EDMUND Look! RONALD Where? [disgust] Oh! ROSE Just ... just tell me, I don't wanna-- EDMUND Better you don't look, Rose. [muttered] That's a lot of blood. RONALD [muttered back] You don't lose that much and walk away. Too bad. Terry was a right guy. ROSE Blood? Oh, no! Hector? Where is he? He's going to shoot me! RONALD Calm down, Rose. He's gone. EDMUND So's the guard. There's just the... blood. SOUND CLICK - LOUDSPEAKER ON DOCTOR Larson [filter/loudspeaker] We apologize for the inconvenience of using a psychotropic gas on you. EDMUND Gas? DOCTOR Larson [filter] Rest assured there will be no long-term effects. EDMUND That was what I heard. DOCTOR Larson [filter] If you are feeling groggy or your head aches, sit quietly, breath deeply, and it will pass. SOUND CLICK - LOUDSPEAKER OFF ROSE [breathing deeply but raggedly] It wasn't our fault - they haveta know that! EDMUND It's not like we're a bunch of babes in the woods. They may know what happened and just not care. ROSE So just because I killed my husband, I;m gonna - I'm gonna hurt a random stranger? That's silly. RONALD [chuckles] No. Just insane, m'dear. MUSIC SCENE 12. OFFICE RUDY I don't see any way to-- EDMUND What? This is cruel and inhumane-- RUDY You don't understand, Ed. [dry] It is Ed I'm talking to, isn't it? EDMUND Yeah, yeah. RUDY You are not a free citizen. You've been consigned to DOCTOR Larson's care, and-- EDMUND Now you don't understand, Horton. A guard was killed last night, in our block-- RUDY You didn't--? EDMUND Nah, it was this loony who thinks women are all evil. RUDY Which, of course, you don't--? EDMUND This ain't the time for that, Rudy. I'm talking about a murder. RUDY There's no record of-- EDMUND The corpse's name is Terry, Terrance, something like that. He is - was - a guard here. Come on, someone's gotta be doing something! RUDY I haven't seen anything in the papers. These state-run facilities, though-- sometimes they're like a world in themselves. EDMUND Well get me another world. RUDY [chuckles] There's only ONE way to do that. EDMUND Yes? RUDY Admit that you're not insane... and go to the chair. MUSIC SCENE 13. CELL HALLWAY SOUND cell block door opens, rose's footsteps and a heavy set of man's footsteps, slow and measured. ROSE Can't you please stop looking at me? I know why - I know why you're staring! You can read my mind! SOUND keys jingle EDMUND [Achilles] You are such a lovely young lady. And so frightened. Come to me and I shall cure you of all your fear. SOUND door unlocks, opens rose Stop! Don't say things like that. He never takes his eyes off of me, you know. RONALD [quietly] And he said unto me, for I am the way-- SOUND rose's quick footsteps, door shuts, locks. EDMUND Hey, buddy, don't you talk? SOUND keys jingle. Heavy footsteps leave RONALD Justice is ever mute. SOUND door opens, closes INMATES [beat] EDMUND What's with that guy? RONALD I hate being ignored like that. ROSE He didn't say anything in the halls - going to the doc's office OR coming back, either. No matter what I did. EDMUND Did the doc say anything about the dead guard? ROSE Not a word, even though I asked. She just ignored the question. RONALD She didn't ignore you completely, though? ROSE No... But she didn't say much. Did she talk to you at all during your appointment? RONALD I didn't have an appointment with her this morning. EDMUND But you were gone-- RONALD I wasn't going to say anything, but the guard just took me out and walked me around the halls for an hour. MUSIC SCENE 14. OFFICE EDMUND I got rights, Horton! RUDY Well, technically, no. Actually, I could do more for you if you WERE in prison. Once you're committed to the doctor's care, you really can't complain. Particularly since you don't have any proof for any of your allegations-- EDMUND Allegations? Proof? How's this for proof - the others will back me up! RUDY [condescending] Two other certified inmates? Oh, sure. That'll stand up in court. MUSIC SCENE 15. EDMUND You guys ever wonder what they did with old Hector? RONALD Solitary confinement, I guess. Killing a guard's pretty serious. EDMUND [sarcastic] Oh, yeah, unlike whatever it was we did to get here. ROSE Hey, I draw the line at killing strangers. EDMUND Just your husband? ROSE Looking back, I guess it wasn't such a great idea. RONALD You guess? Hah! You-- EDMUND Why'd you do it, then? Did he push you around or something? ROSE [snorts] Nah. If he'd'a beaten me, I woulda had a defense in court. Nah, it was just little things. Like the sounds he makes when he eats - ate - and the thing with his toenails. Us women have to put up with this kind of thing all the time, but... It just got to me. EDMUND It just got to you? ROSE Well, yeah! RONALD There's a reason the marriage vows say until death do we part-- ROSE AND I wasn't going to the chair for something like that, so I started pulling the "he was out to get me" hash on my lawyer, and it worked. More or less. Not like this joint is anything to write home about. RONALD It wasn't so bad up until that guy Hector showed up. Since then... well. EDMUND So who'd you kill? SOUND tinny chamber music begins to pipe in, very quietly. RONALD I don't think so-- EDMUND [pushing] Go on. Who? ROSE Oh, leave off. Hey, that's kind of nice. RONALD What? ROSE The music. RONALD Hmm. And if I prefer to maintain my right to avoid self-incrimination? EDMUND Geez. Don't take it that way, I was just curious. [pause] I killed four women. ROSE Four? Maybe I SHOULD be worried. SOUND MUSIC STARTS TO VERY SLOWLY GET LOUDER EDMUND Oh, I put on a song and dance for the cops about how they needed to be killed to save them and all. Making up a Mr. Hyde personality to take all the blame. [beat] Three of em were mob snitches. ronald So what, you're a hit man? EDMUND I owed some money. Shouldn't have got caught at all, seeing as how there was no connection between me and them, but the cops got something - fingerprints or something - and they tracked me down. ROSE And ...the fourth? EDMUND Huh? [offhanded] Oh, just some dame - I did her to throw off the connections and make myself look nuts. I'd already figured on being caught - and better a whacko than a torpedo, ya know? SOUND MUSIC IS LOUD ENOUGH THAT THEY ARE RAISING THEIR VOICES OVER IT RONALD You are some piece of work. EDMUND Still casting stones, eh, preacher? Why don't you explain how you got here-- What in the name of --- What IS that MUSIC? ROSE It was ok... to start with... but, now--! SOUND MUSIC REACHES A CRESCENDO, THEN CUTS OUT WITH MUSIC STING - TIME PASSES SCENE 16. CELL HALLWAY SOUND door lock unlocks, door opens. RONALD --said the offender must be plucked out! SOUND slow footsteps EDMUND I am so sick of this guy. ROSE Are you taking me away? I know you've been watching me. SOUND rattle of large chain, stumbling footsteps victor [growls and snaps] sound keys, cell door opens. ROSE [whispered] Ed? Ed? That guy - is he even human? EDMUND [whispered] Shh. I dunno. ROSE [whispered] But he's so... so huge! SOUND shuffling footsteps, chain rattling. RONALD The beast! For I have seen-- victor [growl - lunge] SOUND scuffle of feet, chains clang against bars. RONALD Aah! SOUND scuffle away. victor [snarling] SOUND thunk of nightstick on flesh, rattle of chains ROSE He didn't-- it didn't even notice! The guard hit it and hit it-- [screaming] Get me out of here! Please! Please get me out of here! SOUND cell door closes, locks, rattle of chains against bars EDMUND Shh. He's not listening anyway. ROSE Anything! Whatever you want! [collapsing into sobs] I can't take any more! SOUND guard's footsteps, keys, cell block door unlocked ROSE Please! I'll admit everything! Take me to the doctor - the lawyer - the JUDGE! Anything! SOUND [beat] footsteps, keys, cell door unlocks. ROSE [Breaking down] Oh... thank you. Thank you...! MUSIC SCENE 17. OFFICE RUDY --none of your business. She's not my case. Now, Ed, they can keep you locked up any way they want - with anyone they want - for as long as they want. You're getting three squares a day, right? EDMUND Usually. Sometimes it comes pretty late, though. And there's been a couple of times it's been too salty to eat. RUDY So they have a crummy cook - place like this? Go figure. EDMUND You gotta get me out of here, Rudy. RUDY I've told you, there's no place else to put you. MUSIC SCENE 18. CELL HALLWAY RONALD I think he's asleep. EDMUND It. Rose called it an it. RONALD I asked the doctor about Rose. The doc said a whole lot of nothing, but I get the impression she - Rose - has revealed all, as they say, and is heading for a short vacation in a nice clean death row cell. EDMUND Not so bad for her. Women get pardoned all the time, specially pretty ones. RONALD Yeah. And you would know all about the pretty ones, eh? EDMUND [remembering fondly] They were all lookers, yeah. RONALD How can you sleep? EDMUND Don't get high and mighty moral on me, bud, you're in here too. RONALD I was only-- It WAS a moral choice. A decision that had to be made and no one was making it. EDMUND Oh, so who'd you kill? Cripples? RONALD I ended the suffering of several decrepit-- VINCENT [ROAR!] SOUND chains smack against cell bars RONALD [half choking] Let go! edmund Nobody's got arms that--! RONALD [gasping] Get someone! You gotta-- [choking] EDMUND Hey! Hey! over here, ugly! SOUND rattle of chains RONALD [gasps for breath] SOUND thumping footsteps, rattle of chains EDMUND Hah! Gorilla! Even you can't reach this far, eh? SOUND cell door being shaken victor [growls] RONALD [hoarse] Thanks, pal. EDMUND Don't thank me yet - I think those hinges are coming loose! SOUND cell door BREAKS open, rattle of chains RONALD Oh, god! No! Release the gas! Someone please release the gas!!! [choking] victor [growls] SOUND chains rattling against bars SOUND tinny chamber music plays over the fight noises EDMUND Not the music! The gas! He's dying, for crying out loud! RONALD [expiring noise] SOUND gas MUSIC SCENE 19. OFFICE EDMUND Horton, whatever I need to do, whatever I need to sign, just hand it over. I ain't spending another night in this place. RUDY You understand the consequences? You won't have the slightest option of recanting again and going back to your original statement. EDMUND Yeah, yeah. Anything - and I mean anything - is better than this freak show. MUSIC SCENE 20. RECEPTION PARTY SOUND glasses tinkle, drinks being poured DOCTOR Larson I'm so glad you find my program effective, Mr. District Attorney. DISTRICT ATTORNEY Well, I admit I had my doubts, when you first outlined it-- DOCTOR Larson You expressed concern about the danger of physical harm to the subject? As you now see, there is never any direct physical contact. Thus, there can be no allegations of physical harm or coersion. ROSE He might have come close to dying with fright, though. [teasing] You were quite terrifying, darling. victor [growls jokingly, then fairly cultured voice] After fifteen movies as monsters ROSE And an apeman... VICTOR [chuckles] And one apemen, who wouldn't be? HECTOR I'm rather glad I get to duck out early. Murderers just [shudders] give me the creeps. TERRANCE Hey, we're out of sham-pane. Want me to go and get some more? HECTOR Nah, I'll go. Be right back! DISTRICT ATTORNEY It seems like a lot of effort, though, for a single confession. A lot of manpower. [tip of the hat] And woman power. DOCTOR Larson Ah, but it's valuable work on a number of levels. We convince a murderer to confess, and we learn a great deal about the human psyche each time through the experiment. DISTRICT ATTORNEY Each time? How many--? ROSE Hmm... [thinking] I've had the screaming meemies four times-- RONALD And I've nearly died... oh, three, I think. DOCTOR Larson Not all of them last as long as our good friend Edmund. DISTRICT ATTORNEY I'll drink to that. MUSIC CLOSER INDIVIDUAL SPEECHES FOR THE "INMATES" FOR "ad lib" SECTIONS ROSE I can feel them, all the time, watching everything I do - always making sure. Always knowing. I never get a moment alone, never a smidgen of privacy. How can I live like this? It's always the same - at first, they seem so nice, so different, then they turn on you, controlling you, having to know everything you do, and then they just don't let you do anything. I couldn't even have a glass of water without getting permission. HECTOR Sinner! Be penitent and god may be merciful and end your despicable life - hah, raise your head in the presence of your condemnation, will you? Created to sin, designed by Satan to tempt honest men from the path of righteousness. Daughters of Eve, you share her taint! You try and draw us into your web, to make us debase ourselves for your enjoyment! Wickedness! Temptress! Succubus! RONALD God moves in mysterious ways, for his decisions are inscrutable and his calling ineffable. He has summoned me to his bidding, and I must obey. There is no evil in ending the suffering of those that god would have called home to his presence. He does not strike out in anger, but reaches forth to embrace his injured and damaged children, who need his solace.
IT'S THE ESCAPE FROM VAULT DISNEY 100TH EPISODE SPECTACULAR!!! That's right, this objectively very stupid podcast where grown-ass adults whine about children's media has finally reached triple-digits, and to celebrate, we assemble the biggest group of guests we've ever had to take on a topic chosen through an unusually-convoluted process involving the randomizer, my guests' preferences AND a Twitter poll, and in that Twitter poll my sadistic listeners made us watch a 2008 "comedy" in which - get this - DOGS TALK! Wha-wha-wha-WHAAAAAAA? Dogs aren't gifted with the power of coherent speech in REAL life!

The Hartford Whalers were a beloved hockey team from the moment of their founding in 1972 as the World Hockey Association's New England Whalers. Playing in the National Hockey League's smallest market and arena after the 1979 WHA merger/absorption/expansion, the Whalers struggled in a division that included both the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens - but the club's fans were among the NHL's most loyal. In 1995, new owners demanded a new arena - and when plans fell through, moved the team to Ralegh, North Carolina - where they became today's Carolina Hurricanes. Astonishingly, the Whalers remain as popular as ever in their former home town and previous incarnation. Even though more than two decades have passed since Connecticut's only professional sports team relocated, nobody has truly forgotten the team, its history, or its uniquely memorable (and still highly profitable) logo. And while the NHL continues to thrive without them, the Whalers' impact stretches far beyond the ice and into a still very-much-alive cultural phenomenon. Boston Globe sportswriter Christopher Price ("Bleeding Green: A History of the Hartford Whalers") grew up in Connecticut as a diehard Whalers fan, experiencing firsthand the team's bond with the community. Drawing from all aspects of the team's past, he shares an uncensored history of the region's still-favorite professional sports franchise.

To wrap up the hour, it's the Monday Night Football Same Game Parlay.

On this episode of the Historically Speaking Sports Podcast, Host Dana Auguster sits down with Marty's Illegal Stick: A Hockey History Podcast host Scott Kinville as we discuss the long and illustrious career of Gordie Howe and his career with the WHA's Houston Aeros where he won two league titles with his sons Marty and Mark Howe. Later in the show Scott Kinville returns to pay tribute to Nassau Veterans Memorial Colliseum where the New York Islanders won 4 consecutive Stanley Cups in the 1980s. The arena known as "Fort Neverlose" opened its doors 50 years ago this week.
My next guest is former WHA player and NHLer Bill Butters. I've been excited about this interview since I booked it, as Mr. Butters was one of my coaches when I played at the University of Minnesota. He made a huge positive impact on my life, during the four years I played for the Gophers. Mr. Butters is a Minnesota Native and carved his path to professional hockey, eventually the NHL, not by putting many points up on the board, but by bringing crowds to their feet, by what he could do with his fists. Back in the 1970s, if you weren't a skill guy or Canadian, the only way to make it past college hockey, if you were an American, was by fighting, and that's exactly what Mr. Butters did, playing 7 professional seasons, playing 299 games and registering 607 penalty minutes. Before turning pro, Mr. Butters played four seasons at the University of Minnesota, where he was mentored by two hockey icons, Glen Sonmor and legendary coach Herb Brooks. Those two would weave in and out of Bill's life and support him as there were some struggles along the way. Let's not forget his wife Deb, who also stood by his side during a dark period of his journey. Mr. Butters enjoyed a 14-year college coaching career as an assistant at the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin, and Bethel College. Ever since I've known him, he's had a higher power guiding him along the way. That passion and commitment is seen clearly through his work over the years with Hockey Ministries International and Christian Hockey Camps International, mentoring hockey players worldwide, and spreading the word of the Lord. In addition to all of the hockey stuff, he's a husband of 50 years this year, father of 3, and grandfather of 7, so we have a lot to talk about. I've included the link to Hockey Ministries International if you'd like to learn more about what Mr. Butters has been involved with for over 40 years. Enjoy the interview, and thanks for stopping by for a listen!! Have a great Day!! Hockey Ministries International - https://www.hockeyministries.org/
NHL Hall of Famer Gerry Cheevers led the Boston Bruins to 4 Stanley Cup finals in the 70's, winning 2. He helped change the economics of the NHL by jumping to the WHA for 4 years. As a coach, he still ranks in the top 15 all time in win % for those with over 250 games coached. And, without a doubt, he has the most iconic goalie mask of all time. Listen to some great stories from a hockey legend.

I read from decide to decimal. In America, a "decillion" is a 1 with 33 zeroes behind it but in other areas, it's a 1 with 60 zeroes behind it! Wha?!?! It turns out they use words with the suffix "-ard" between each of our "-ions" so our "Billion" is their "Milliard", then they have "Billion" (our "Trillion"), then "Billiard" (our "Quadrillion"), then "Trillion" (our "Quintillion"), etc. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/decillion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_large_numbers The word of the episode is "decidua". When I read the definition I didn't make the connection that it's in both pregnancy and menstruation.

Once the agreements had been signed and everything was agreed upon, it was time to choose the first Team Canada. With the pick of the best NHL players, 35 were chosen but it was not without controversy. The exclusion of WHA players, specifically Bobby Hull, would even be debated in Parliament.

Is Prevention Training in HPO Useless?: The Myth of Standardized Assessments with Dr. Chris Juneau, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCSJoin Doc's Sarah & Alyse while we have a great professional banter session with our friend and colleague Dr. Chris Juneau! We discuss the potential "rubbish" that is standardized assessments and what may be a better choice when working in the human performance field. In this episode we chat about:Is prevention useless and a post analytic fallacy?How resiliency is not the most important factor to train to in HPO.Do confidence and force production relate?Are you REALLY in control of the outcome of HPO programming? Or is it just good genetics?The #1 prediction for injury? Is previous injury. If you're not training to the standard deviation, you are doing it wrong.

FANSHAW No. Wouldn't want anyone to get hurt, now, would we? EZRA Is that the lady, in the cart? With the big hat and veil? FANSHAW I would assume so. A bit of an affectation for the wilds, but everyone has their little vanities. EZRA Why'ud a lady wear a veil? Is she really ugly? FANSHAW I don't know about this particular lady, but many ladies wear them to protect their delicate skin from the harsh sun. EZRA Ain't much sun under all these trees.

Just an annex big enough for her to serve out of. The doctor's wife objected, you see, to having all these men troop through the house at mealtimes. LEM Cain't say that I blame her. Catch me up a bit? FANSHAW They say the way to man's heart is through his stomach - and we now have clear evidence this works for groups of men as well as it works on individuals. They've all become the best of chums. And those Swedish follows are learning English, bit by bit. LEM One more victory for-- FANSHAW Civilization? LEM [down] I was gonna say salvation. Had a might too much time to ponder my past while I been laid up here. FANSHAW I shan't pry, but you know I will gladly listen to anything you feel the need to unburden yourself of. LEM Thankee kindly, but my burden is my own. FANSHAW Well. When you are up to visting, We should make a trip to speak to the fellow who was being chased by the outlaws. LEM Where ARE they, anyway? FANSHAW Several of the men took them down a flatboat on the river to the next landing. Haven't made the return yet - I gather it takes a few days. LEM Mm. Good. FANSHAW But, you see... this fellow was ...killed a bit further out than I can reach. It's very frustrating. Ezra, though... LEM Oh, yup - this Ezra you been talking about? How come I ain't seen him, never? FANSHAW I don't know. He's a child. A spirit. Who prefers to think of himself an angel. I rather think he's been here quite a long time. And Lem... LEM Yup? FANSHAW I-I feel quite dreadful about this, but - you understand, I have been endeavoring to find some way to help him pass on. But there's this--- LEM Spit it out and let's see what color it is. FANSHAW Ezra can go just about anywhere within the entire valley. That is rather a long distance. He seems to have very few of the limitations that I find myself so hampered by. I don't understand it one bit, and I have this - notion - to try and figure out why. Before I help him find his way onward. LEM Guess it's a good thing I'm laid up, then, ain't it?
Obscure trivia answers abound this week, as we return to the pro rinks of the 1970s with Twin Cities sports fan extraordinaire Dan Whenesota ("A Slap Shot in Time") for a look back at the not one, but two World Hockey Association franchises known as the Minnesota Fighting Saints. The first team was one of the WHA's original twelve franchises, playing from 1972 until mid-1976; the second was the rebirth of the league's hastily relocated Cleveland Crusaders, and played for part of 1976-77 season. Neither incarnation completed its final season of play. Save for a few games in the early months of the first version's inaugural season, both Fighting Saints played in the uniquely configured St. Paul Civic Center - where clear acrylic glass dasher boards offered fans completely unobscured views of all the action. As for action, there was plenty - both in terms of fan-friendly uptempo offensive play, and aggressive, often penalty-drawing physicality - befitting of the team's name and iconic logo. If you remember the WHA, the cross-town rival NHL North Stars, the movie "Slap Shot" (not-so-loosely based on the Saints and its minor league affiliate Johnstown [PA] Jets), or even simply where you were on June 27, 1972 when Bobby Hull stunned the sports world by signing with the upstart league - this is the episode for you!
