Remembering John Altobelli, Kobe, Gianna, and the lives lost in Calabasas
Jack is back after a brief two-week hiatus with four very special guests, mourning the lives lost in the Calabasas helicopter crash.
First, former baseball player Daniel Delaney talks about the great life of his Orange Coast Pirates' coach, John Altobelli (2:30 - 24:10). Next, reporter, media relations specialist, and ESPN Phoenix personality Makayla Perkins tells her Kobe Bryant story from a 2019 Phoenix Mercury game she worked that Kobe brought his daughter to. She also discusses the impact Kobe had on women's sports (27:15 - 34:25). Parker Gatewood from American Ninja Warrior eulogizes his favorite athlete ever, and talks with Jack about Kobe's legacy, impact, and what steps the NBA should take to honor him (34:25 - 1:02:10). Finally, we end on a positive note, as Jack is joined by Pastor Jake Van Gilse for a conversation about finding hope and peace in times of tragedy and suffering (1:02:10 - 1:12:55).
