"He's still one of my best friends and so that's what the seat was planned but obviously twelve. So couldn't go fly fighter jets at that time. And when often play golf the versity Kansas, and then left there join the airforce went to officer training in the off to flight school. And just as a as a as a stat. This really fascinating and So you go through a thing called pilot training undergraduate pilot training up takes two and a half the whole program takes two and a half years. government spends eight million dollars per pilot training us. And Eight million per pilot in from the start of the program to the finish. Only four point. Eight percent of the people will make it through the program to become a fighter pilot. So it is by far no, I'm not I'm not saying I could be an. got a lot of seal buddies, but it is by far the most expensive highest attrition rate of any military training. There is why? The main reason is that so many people don't make it. I mean you got a brief glimpse of it when you went up and thirty eight. But. It's a you know the F sixteen goes two and a half times either sound it pulls nineties you're running the most sophisticated you know computing device. In the world dropping bombs, you know shoot missiles fueling I mean need is just a carnival ride that combines not only physical aptitude but then Ben's still an emotional aptitude to be able to operate it. You know those speeds under insane amounts of pressure. Combat. you just you got it or you don't. I'd love to say, Hey, you know I worked really hard which I did but it is You know something like give Gory to God for that I've had the opportunity to be flying fighters for twenty one years and still doing that then at Eglin air force base and desktop forward in the reserves now down there and we. Doing it But yeah, it's You know it's an incredible program and it's funny. You Know How god brings. Things. Together in your life and send you on trajectories that you don't ever expect. But if it wasn't for golf and being a fighter pilot, you know I never would have I have the had the platform to start folds of honor. and. What made you? What made you decide to start there because obviously golfer you started I which then through golf meeting a fighter pilot becoming a fighter pilot but then you went and played golf in college in. Now you finished college, you go through fighter pilot training become a fighter pilot but golf is kind of staining your life and so how does folds of honor come about? So my dream was to be, gopro on a fighter pilot obviously did make it onto or couldn't make it onto her based on being a fighter pilot. So the next best thing was to be a class, a PTA member. So the guys that work at the golf courses in in my case, you know build on the I just loved the game but I got back from my second tour of duty in Iraq and at this point, I, believe in my dream job description pretty average guy honestly you know from. The way I was living Friday I'm a fighter pilot I'm like Oh hold on. Let me just. Stop right there. There's no such thing as F sixteen fighter pilot that did two tours in Iraq. I'm just the average guy no. Sorry brought. Hugged I agree on the maybe the accomplishments I, but I was living very selfish life. I'll put it that unlike hotly average. you know flying fast jets and playing golf and drinking too much whiskey and you know part time that and. It was It was an intervention in my I really believe you know personally and we've helped a lot of people as a result but I I wasn't I wasn't the best person myself. I'll leave it at that. and I ended up, it came back for my second were of of three trips to Iraq and I was on a commercial airline flight with twin brothers. Identical twin brothers, Corporal Brad Buckling brought his twin brother Corporal Brock home from Iraq who had been killed. And that night I watched this whole family on the tarmac including his four year old son and despite the captain's request half the people got up and left the airplane It's like one o'clock in the morning and. I've really felt a calling from God. He picks the least among us for sure and qualify thereby felt a calling to do something. For this little four year old boy that had lost his dad and in combat and for me. I'm a big believer that education is the bridge to opportunity inequality in this country. And So our mission you know started very small, but he never wavered on started foles on our literally above my garage. And in Oklahoma and The Primary Vision which I mentioned we haven't ever strayed from to honor the sacrifices of our minute women in the military who killed or disabled by providing educations for their family ice. And you know again, turned to the game of golf and started a event called Patriot Golf. Day Let me about my garage at the PGA America. Agrees to get behind this concept of Patriot which we'll talk about but it's Labor Day, weekend we've got. You know four or five thousand golf courses that sign up to host. Patriot Golf Day, and that's simply is collect donations for us. So we asked people to donate at least an extra dollar when I go tee it up and. We've raised just through Patriot Golf. Day. About fifty million dollars and we give golfers the opportunity to play their most aerobic meaningful round of the year and pay those donations forward to military families who desperately need their help. From Patriots Day Golf. GimMe the best story from what you started at foals of honor. What's the one story that you've heard from family or a kid that's meant the most to you. Don't that as regards to golf, it's easy and we've got you know almost thirty thousand recipients. Now there's some amazing stories out there. There were two young boys that reached out to me bat and Daniel Cash. And they hand wrote a letter and they went on to describe their their dad Chris cash who'd been killed in Iraq. And that they had grown up playing golf together and that they had saved scorecards like we all do over the years and that. In order to remember their dad, they would pull out the old scorecards. And they would replay the rounds of Golf that they played with their dad before he was killed in Iraq. and. I got this letter and you know I'm really proud to say that we sent both those young band to college and they're going off you know or living successful lives But that was early on in the store to fold Toronto and it just you know just. Just reminds freedom is not free. Every day is a gift and we live in a country. That is is perfect. I think it's the best in the world but there's less than one half of one percent that wake up every day when I die for it and there's there ain't no other country in the world. With with the military that we have here it's about taking care of their families and always being reverend to the sacrifices that have been made..

Late you're Dan Rooney coming up next. It is my distinct pleasure to bring in someone who I could call a friend, but also somebody who I am so. Jealous of because of what his job was major Dan Rooney who is the founder and president of folds of Honor Foundation First off. Major Dan Rooney How you doing as strange times everyone, how are you doing? Yeah we're. So we are hanging in there and all during a strange it's actually got promoted some tenant Colonel Dan now. So that was one good thing that happened during Kobe. WHO Also Woking Fighters yet. Thank you. Thank you very much and Yeah. Maybe we're hanging in there I'm a big believer. God's got a plan and You know thankfully you know my family in France. I haven't experienced of you know any serious impacts from from Colbert. Circle but certainly. Prayers for all those who has but it's interesting. Sometimes, things have to fall apart in order to come together with my sense is that. God has a bigger plan to refocus on on the things that matter both. our families take care of each other and So I'm always trying to find a bright light in in sometimes he's Dr Challenge about one tower you same thing men, I'm you know me man I'm the guy I love looking for the Silver Lining I. Love Looking For the light at the tunnel in. I'm I'm the one who is always like. What from anything bad will help people get closer together and closer to each other. You know I've rule number one, love one another. So like how can we do that better? How can we as a species just do that better man but I'm you know I'm faulted unfold I'm. I'm jealous I'm jealous of the fact that you flew F16's like that is one of the coolest. Let me tell you something. There are. Things that people don't know until they actually do something one. People. Still argue that golfers aren't athletes until. Other athletes even you laugh their people until you as athletes, another sports if you ask a football player who plays golf and has played in the super bowl or an MLB player who's played in the world series or hockey players, you name it you name a sport and you ask those elite athletes if golf is a sport and they'll all tell you. Yes and golfers athletes. One thing that I had no clue about is that when it comes down to it, the greatest athletes that we have our fighter pilots. And people who right now are like, what come on man? No, that's that's not true listen. I got the fly in a fight and the training one of the I. was in San Antonio. And it was thirty eight that's exact-. Yes. The T thirty eight, which in the original top gun, the t thirty eight played played the MiG correct correct. That is correct Yep. And so. I went in the t thirty, eight and. was. Not asked before we got started hey, what's this GONNA be like? In the dude goes, it's GONNA be. Like the hardest workout you've ever done. And you're probably not going to feel right for a day. And he was beyond true and the fact that you guys do that as training five to six times. Like Righetti that's not. People don't understand the workout you have to have in their mental. So let's start with this. How did you get into flying fighter jets? So it's it's it's good everything great in my life is directly connected to the game of golf. Like. Every moment that's changed my path and I was twelve. And I was playing in a little golf tournament at the Store Country Club in Oklahoma where I grew up I. Bad. A fighter pilots name was Steve Steve Court right.

"Think the crazy thing. Now like Jim Herman was. One hundred and ninety eighth or some. He had no chance of making the fedexcup he wins and now he's in. But Shane lowry outside the Fedex Cup, when I saw him at the airport, he was going to be one of my sleeper picks as well. He played his way into it. Sergio Garcia is not in the Fedex Cup. That's not surprising. He because he only has twelve he only had twelve starts and didn't have he. He's just not been playing well. Yeah. That's what I'm saying like he hasn't had a lot of start now the thing for a guy like tiger woods. Is he going to check out O'Shea Yo say. Gee. Tiger Woods. He. Knows he knows what's up. Tiger. HERE'S THE QUESTION MARK Just anyone believe the type is going to be his back is going to be to do three in a row. We'll find out what if he tries to do that? Then what he's going to have to do is play four out of five weeks right? That's not okay. So here's the deal with tiger. I believe that Tiger if he does not play himself into the tour championship this week. We'll shut it. That's exactly right. Shut down and said US Open that's what I said like us. He's not going to go play. He's not gonNA play Boston than next week in Chicago and the following week tour championship right I've said it a million times on this podcast. He's going to do what he can to get the swings in that he needs if he stays relevant in the Fedex Cup stay around but if not go forward to the major still quickly just because we embark on this because it's a weird Kobe nineteen pandemic version of the fedexcup playoffs what happen exists. Instead of the usual quadrupling of points versus what's available during the regular season, the points where tripled. So for example, the one of the first two events. Of the playoffs fifteen hundred Fedex Cup points instead of two thousand and that it Offsets Limitation Thirteen tournaments, which is what we had this year including the players, the three majors, and the WGC Dell Technologies. So at the conclusion of Northern Trust, the top seventy Fedex Cup points will advance to the BMW championship. Now that the points up for grabs. Shaved by a quarter, it could be more challenging to survive this according to the PGA tour, what they're doing for the changes of it. So there are modifications to it and it's a little bit confusing because we still have major championships to play and I. think that's probably golf's biggest hurtled caddy is typically this is the end of the season before the wraparound starts as we embark. Towards football but now they're kind of being wedged in there. And it's a little bit anti-climatic. Asked me. I? Just yes. I agree with that because of how strange this season is in the other thing too is the guy who started the year inside the top one, twenty five but didn't make the playoffs. They're still good to go for next year. Right. Because of the way that the season is played out with the tour has decided to do is make sure that everybody keeps their job moving forward. So the playoffs this season is just like ed we'll do three quick things to get some cash real quick right and you know what are the major counter? It's not a really now that's open now on foot. The, let's go to winged foot in what are you getting ready for masters. Yeah and how about the as soon as we finished recording the podcast last week, the masters comes out in as no fans. Right after I said I was finally called to your side of adult I. Don't think we should do this without fans. The masters must listened to the podcast and been like we don't care what you think. Now we're going to do the opposite whatever you said. Lucia I'm not here saying that aesthetically it's not going to be amazing to see Augusta national in that way also, but there is nothing like roars at Augusta National. You know my thoughts on this. I saw that and I was like how about those people by the way who went and got postponed in April like dude by November were go good. Good out of problem we'll, be, eating. Sandwiches tomorrow.

"Radio. So if you will let's introduce your very special guests for the next two segments. I want you mentioned her name. Everybody's gonna show. Oh, yeah. I know you're talking about go ahead. Oh, yes. I'm so honored to be here with Sally Wiggin, a legend a legend as what does that mean? I, you know, I don't there. So many. I'll tell you that I'm sitting across Sally. And she looks like you know, what she did when Hillgrove is alleged Myron was alive. Myron was a legend, Dan, Rooney was alleged growing up in Pittsburgh. And this is why it's exciting for me to get your take on retirement, one of my first interactions with Pittsburgh legends was with Bill and Patti burns many years ago. I was a cancer patient at children's in their first children's hospital. Telethon I was an inpatient are you? I did not know that was kidding me. That's right. I was a cancer patient. So when I saw kind of cancer landmark skins you had Hodgkin, right? And I saw Patty and daddy doing the the telephone I thought. Wow, look at this. This is great. And and then obviously Sally I never met Bill burns. I interestingly enough, but I became friends with Patti especially in in the last stop I talked to her in the last year for life. And we really we got to be friends. And I so regret that I didn't get to know her well before then. Yeah, I did because we admired each other. Now, I'm going to start to cry. No don't know. No, don't cry. So I will say it. So the member thirtieth was your last day. Yeah. Technically my last day of working was the sex, but we had made the agreement that officially that was my retirement day because it was the end of my contract. So I work with a lot of retirees. And and I don't think of you as a as a as a senior as I don't think of them when I get out of bed in the morning. I can barely move. It myself as a safe. That's what I was gonna ask you, right? So you get up December first. And now, you're physically retired. What's the first thought that comes into your mind up? The first thought was relief excitement. Nostalgia regrets. Choices not made. To tell us some regrets. I think everybody does that as a senior. If someone said, I've lived a great life. I have no regrets. That's a lie. You may have lived a great life. Everyone has a regret because that means you've lived a perfect life. And the last time I checked if you're a Christian or maybe an an another religion. There would be something similar to this. You would have to have had a perfect light life to have no regrets. It's all in how you handle regrets. If you learn from them, if you treasure them, if you think of them fondly, like if I may maybe if I had made this choice things life would be different. There was a there was an opportunity to leave here, and I wouldn't call it a regret. But I I wonder what my life would have been if I had laughed so when you look back on your career. So that's that happens when you when you when you had the opportunity everybody keeps asking you about start thinking about it. Well, you've had the opportunity to meet and and interview many many. People in looking back. Is there one person that you say, wow, I would have really liked to talk to that person. Or interview that person just have a sit down with this particular person during your career, and I'm not gonna say you living or deceased I'm saying during your span between that nineteen eighty till? I didn't get the interview. A lot. It's a lot of people that you did interview. I guess so when looking back, I I can't think of anybody that oh, I know. Cell. I am in. We'll be the judge of that. I am in love with a certain actor. Everybody jokes about it people who know me. I almost drove overnight ABC at the time. One of our former producers was the executive producer at good Morning, America. And he was going to be interviewed. And I thought about doing it and a good friend of mine I'm going to be joining her and her husband to watch the wildcard game this afternoon. And I said, do you think that they would let me meet him if but I would have to drive all night any so smacked of being a stalker. I chose not to do it. He's an actor called Vigo Mortenson. He's probably going to be nominated for an Oscar. He's nominated for a Golden Globe this weekend. He's in green book. Did you see? It's a great violence. Tremendous amazing movie. He should've been nominated for that he was nominated for eastern promises. Which was the same director Kronenbourg. I think it is. Yeah. I I fell in love with him when I saw Lord of the rings. So you've never got know fell in love with him read everything about him people gave me a book of poetry everybody. I had this big this big. Poster of him as as strikers, he was striker, but he was actually Lord era, Gordon and his speech in the final Lord of the rings. He's on a horse, and he's an incredible writer, and then Dow go I think I've seen the Dow go fifteen times, but I wish I could have interviewed him. So we could have set that up to have him walk through the door looking at Saint James that was a great movie. Dow go down, why didn't get great interview. Great interviews. Great ratings. I mean like on rotten tomatoes. It would be probably maybe a tomato, but a small, but you know, not that he's not had a successful career. But I have to be honest with you after seeing history of violence. I thought he was going to become the next year. You know, what he did the road here? And I have read that after doing the road, and they and speaking of that he was here a lot people would see him, and he was in character. Right. He would be down at Harpen fiddle. And they said he was so nice. But the road was so emotionally devastating for him. I think he'd he'd pulled away from acting for a while. I think that that's what happened same thing. That kind of Michael Keaton did right at the height of everything he sort of backed backed away and to to great actors. But yeah, that's someone. I can't believe I'm saying that. But I'm gonna they're obviously there are people that I never got to interview Obama. It's not true. I did. But it was for like it was during the primary. So so, yeah, that's there's don't opportunity right with chronicle. I mean, you're still gonna do chronicle. No, no, no. I'm Don, Don, I'm done. You know, other people at a TA will do chronicle and I'm done. You know, I've heard that from we've heard that from co. No, no, no. When you have a contract the contract is over. I'm finished. You will not see you will not see me on WTA ever again. So maybe it'll be somewhere else. Well, not for a while. Now for awhile. I wouldn't go to another. I I wouldn't go to another station television station, you might see me interviewed at project for project bundle up. You might see me do something that involves I'll be kennywood. So you'll see me Kenny Kenny would when they have Kenny way. Yeah. Everybody. But no, I'm finished the. Yeah. I'm rob. If that doesn't scream a Pittsburgh life read kennywood potato patch fried. Does it ever me? I mean a year from now, you might see me do something on Q E D. But but but no, I'm I'm sort of done with TV. I think I'll you social media now. I mean, someone might interview me do an interview with me. But but no, I'm not going to. I unless someone approaches me and says and says like a year from now, we'd like you to be part of this documentary. I would consider something like that. I would if it were a documentary that spoke to me, I think when you look back at TA an an I respect that that you wouldn't go anywhere else. But when you look back, and you look at some of the folks that even I grew up with an I grew up, obviously watching you and Don cannon and Paul Long, Adam Lynch all of those people in Colorado now. Yeah. Lynne's not good for von, you know, in advance gone, right? And all of those except for Lynn are gone. So when you think legends don't start crying. I don't do that. But when you think of that, I mean, that's you look at how news has evolved over the years from when you say devolved devolved, right? I mean well. I'm not being sarcastic. It's devolved in it. It's different. Because simply because of of the streaming that we have so many people get their news from iphones. Well, everybody's a or whatever, you know, like mobile androids, and whatever or they get them from their computers or they don't get it at all. Or they think they're getting the and you can get news from Facebook. You can but but it's all mixed up. So some people don't know that what they're reading actually isn't news. And they think it is. And so there's so it's it's very confusing to know what really is news, and what is opinion because it's gotten all mixed up. So I don't want to get all politic. No, let's not. Could you imagine a world? President Kennedy and Reagan any of those that had access to Twitter to Facebook. What would that have been like knowing what the president's office looks like now with title? I sometimes I'm just gonna put it this way. Sometimes things are singular unprecedented. I I'm not sure that a precedent would have been set van despite the the access does that make sense. Does what I'm trying to say it does it does. I think that you know, but we're not talking about retirement. We're not talking about retirement. We're talking about everything else, but retirement, but you know, and I do want to put me in a corner. I said I will do anything for anybody. But TA I I mean, I I there is a a loyalty to them. So I think that I mean public television if they approached me a year from now 'cause I I have to wait a year. I if public television where do, and it was an amazing opportunity to be part of something that makes a difference in the community. I would consider that your fans love you so much. I guess that's that's where it is. When when chronicle comes on or black and gold Steeler came on. Oh, people tuned in just to watch you. They didn't know everybody know, we tuned into watch you I mean, and that, but that's I think people aren't done with Sally Wiggin, you, you know, you may be but. Dan, the clout the people I mean, she and she's just listen, I'm sixty one I've been down the road.

"Week dank our good friends at empire city casino and Dan Rooney's for the hospitality. And for being such a great partner. Now carbs. Absolutely. They've been great. They have been great the food has been terrific. You guys have been terrific. And before we get back to the calls two teams that a lot of people in the Super Bowl New England putting them they're basically every year. The LA Rams David struggling over these last couple of weeks Iran's. I mean, I think the loss Cooper Cup has really hurt that offense. I mean, you look at golf on third down call you look at golf and a number. She was pulling up early in the year to what he's pulling up right now. Look like the same guy McVay telling you after the game that we got a lot of work to do with that. He's not happy with the way they're playing and you got Wayland by seven but Carl Wendy's see Bill Belichick team with fourteen penalties. Only ten points within the states. They're making who you more concerned about his New England or the LA Rams are the LA Rams because New England knows what they are. They're not very talented across the board. They're well coached in their discipline team. They have some talent in some areas, but other areas they don't gronkowski is not the threat that he used to be, but they adjusted to that. So they know going into every game. And this is the one thing Bill bell. Check is great act saying if we don't do these things we're going to lose to game. So when that game is over with they'll know exactly the things that they prepare for the next cue is why they lost a game. Nothing surprised them. Now. You look at the LA Rams were doing they were flying high quarterback could do wrong. It's not Cooper per se. Yes, they miss him. But there there are two things that they're encountering right now. They're encountering are defensive front. That has got no pressure beyond Aaron wishes from arquebuses. You got a lot of guys across their front. Have. You heard says name here's damage when it's convenient penalty. That's the only time. I hear is that this was the guy who was supposed to take some pressure off. Aaron Donald and he hasn't. So this front is underperformed. Their defensive backfield is getting exposed a bit. But then. You know, I had this call to action. And it was just me. It was Louis Riddick Joyner saying how lazy these beacons of coordinators are because the plays are on film somewhere where the Rams offense mimicked a lot of what to watch the Redskins did back in the eighties. Now, you just to go back and see definitive teams are defending them differently. Now, they're not giving those deep crossing routes again. Those are now interceptions where they were wide open plays. So teams defensively are changing a bit. Look at Kansas City. They had their low skill scoring output against the against the chargers. One hundred ninety nine yards for Patrick Mahomes. Denso's that's a bad day for him a bad day for that offense. So defenses are getting smarter. They're doing their research. Now, they're looking at some of these of concepts and saying okay here teams at a defendant. They're they're in the books. None of this is new so we can do this with our defense. And it's making these offenses in these young quarterbacks have to think a little more. They're not getting the wide open place that they were accustomed to. Let's say to new Windsor Nikki's up next on a foul. It's up Nikki. Yeah. Hey, JJ, Carlisle sheltie. A question about the giants quarterback situation. I was wondering now now now I I would I would go with me live alone. Nick. Mommy playing very well. I think he kitchen he'd be much better. Other people coming out and draft..
