How many of the full do you drink per day that full Stanley Cup it's 40 ounces I would say probably minimum a six six times forty what's that it's heavy see it's heavy oh my God you just got all over your white shirts oh.

200 ounces of that per day probably I just couldn't bear to put my mouth on that no I I thought it was a good look for you we've shared multiple germs but that lipstick contaminated straw pumps Jennifer what have you had it with this week with gated communities that is a [__] great unbelievable how.

Stupid it is I can't believe that we have not discussed this horrible 20 years of friendship gated communities are the absolute worst the worst because what here's my deal every time I'm going into my neighborhood waiting for the gate to open I think why are we doing this we're paying for.

Our own roads through our homeowners dues and anybody that's going to rob you is just going to wait till the person in front of you goes I mean it's not like a Cracker Jack Fail-Safe system right all you have to do is go in after somebody if there was a committee meeting and you could vote to do away with the gate you.

Would assume I would go to the homeowners association which would never happen could you imagine everything worse something would be wrong with me like take me to the emergency room if you walk in and I'm going to a homeowners association meeting so I for my job I have to go to a lot of gated communities where I'm designing a home.

Right most of the time these security guards want to play Hero well first of all they're 150. my thought thing would be it's a power trip for the security guard 100 it's the mall cop syndrome right right so let me tell you what I've had it with okay what have you had it with so you're on a website and you're.

Getting close to like making a purchase and they're like prove to us that you're not a robot a hate identify the images that have a street sign in it I flunk those tests I flunk them all the time non-stop identify the crosswalks right identify a picture with lights in it yes traffic light traffic light so then you're like is the pole a.

Part of the traffic right we've got to figure out who invented that thing and I want that [__] on I've had it podcast we need to know who invented that and who are they trying to keep out like robots like if a robot has a credit card that works why do they give a [__] I mean seriously like who are they.

Protecting themselves from it's unbelievable I don't understand it's like this this like crazy layer of security everybody flunks the test do you guys flank the test generally I don't know if I've ever flunked the test my biggest thing is with you is the poll is the poll part right I don't know the.

Traffic light like if you can see the back of the stop sign does that count yeah right right if there's just there's no oversight well I'll tell you what I just think what are they saving us from same with the Gated Community like what are you protecting me from in my gated community [__] nothing what are you protecting me from on a website nothing.

Robots robot Killer Robots Killer Robots which if they have money they can buy whatever they want if you're a robot and you have an unlimited credit card I've had it podcast merch take it all you can have all of it no robot questions nothing welcome to I've had it podcast I'm Jennifer hi I'm Angie we call her pumps Jenna neelia.

Here Richard's here I'm so excited about this episode I have a feeling you're going to be mad at me after the episode probably okay if it doesn't take much right but uh I am so excited because we are going to discuss pickleball I personally have not had it with.

Pickleball you're obsessed we have some guests that are coming on later that have had it with pickleball they've written a Manifesto but before we bring them on I want to tell you in the audience so last year I started playing tennis I've never played Rocket Sports had zero hand-eye coordination played tennis took.

Lessons religiously and then some friends and I started playing pickleball I was like well this is even easier more people can play it so I play both tennis and pickleball pickleball I play every single day sometimes twice a day I mean we're serious about it oh I know I'm aware of your seriousness I have a coach much to my surprise.

All these articles in the news start popping up pickleballs taking over America it's a sensation blah blah blah well then I see this rather alarming story in the New York Post the New York Post covers the story that there's this playground in the West Village which is a neighborhood in Manhattan and the kids.

Would play on this playground well apparently the pickleballers have come and they're taping off the lines and putting up nets on the playground and I can't get behind that these kids are all playing and the playground in West Village this is what the article says the Sun was shining kids were laughing riding scooters and.

Kicking soccer balls about pickleball players lined up beside two designated courts on the concrete area of the popular Park then suddenly a commotion interrupted The picture-perfect Early Autumn the father of one of the children playing started screaming at the pickleball players and threatening to call the police leave he.

Yelled repeatedly so these parents are Furious that these pickleball players are out there on the playground taking over some of the playground the kids are kind of huddled over but on part of the playground because you know space is not a big thing in Manhattan obviously right so then.

Apparently the parents are encouraging the kids just go ahead and kick your soccer ball so the kids are kicking their soccer balls right through the pickleball so it's just pandemonium it's chaos in the West Village at the pickleball courts and so I personally and I'm for the pickleball players see I'm not let me tell you why what if.

Those kids ever done with their lives they're cute they're kids exactly kids are playground people that's who they build playgrounds for adults can rent space they uh no the kids win on that every time no I'm for the people okay okay okay throw the pickleball Players let's say you and I we're taking our Rugrats.

To play outside and we knew that that two hours of playing outside was going to be the difference in an early bedtime no tears at bath time all those things like run get the energy out of them and we March up there and there's adults playing on the playground even though it's pickleball and you love it you'd be furious I'll tell you exactly.

What I do okay I'd call a babysitter and say come get my kids I'm at this park bring me my pickleball bag and I would send the kids to Chuck E cheese like a [__] normal person no you're wrong that makes no sense I think that the there's some pavement there here's my point what you think is because you're an occult you're in a pickleball if you.

Lay it out there is no story that ends with adults playing on a playground and kids playing on a playground that the adults should win there it's just it can't happen it's a playground I think we're empowering kids too much to plan a playground yeah you've crossed over to the cult dark side I mean you're.

On the dark side of this picture I'm just saying I mean it's changed your personality a little bit you can send them over there so the uh all the parks in Manhattan are all for kids first and foremost yes when did this happen that the kids get the perks they have not done anything with their lives these people do they're.

Kids why how could they do anything they were just born they've done the bare minimum adults are out working paying for all this [__] for the kids the kids need to share these Open Spaces in New York City those basketball courts especially in West Village they're adults there are no kids there it's also like not a great playground Jenna and I.

Were talking about that but in a situation where kids are trying to play soccer and adults are trying to play Pickleball which is what this article is there is no scenario in which the kids should have to stand down for the adults I gotta say I'm with you on this one pumps because New York City these kids are so.

Confined they don't even have playgrounds at schools that have like parking lots to play in with like some jungle gyms over them right adults could do lots of things they could go to the movies they could go to the bars they could go run on West on the path so I gotta say I think it belongs to the kids right I just think.

Your perspective is from the pickleball like you're a pickleball purist cultist like it's the best thing in the world it's the best thing in the world for me that's right right for you what I say to the kids is when you get big enough then you can have your own and you pay bills and you pay for your kids stuff then you can have your own.

Place too now we don't have these problems in Oklahoma City because we don't have a space right we have attention space so there's not there's not cross-contamination right pickleball courts are not contaminated with children right wait children can't play Pickleball I'll tell you some do and sometimes when I'm at the place where I.

Play Pickleball some kids will be in the court next to me and they hit balls into our court Non-Stop and the rule is when a ball goes in your court you immediately stop play and you have to say ball because somebody could step on it and roll an ankle right and so and also these kids like to do a.

Lot of tomfoolery we're in the middle of a grudge match Championship right right it's a big deal every day Jennifer plays in the championship every day I won two championships today before 5 30 a.m oh my gosh okay we are in the presence of greatness they're obnoxious they're loud there's a.

Lot of tomfoolery and it just happens oh no I'm 100 on team Jennifer for that okay if you're next to a pickleball person and you're [__] off and you put their ball then you should be expelled and if you're young you're just stupid go somewhere else agreed however in a place where there's one opportunity to play I think the kids have to win.

I know that doesn't make I didn't realize you were so pro-kids I don't even like kids but I'm just saying it you just can't convince me ever that an adult should have priority in a play area a dad who was also in the park on Friday put it more bluntly meaning the pickleball players they're the lantern.

Flies of the sports world that's a great one so then I guess the parents called the police or the parks department and so they come and they tell the pickleball players get your [__] and head out get your net and get out they're like they're like no we're not gonna go we're not going oh no we won't.

Go so she's like look if you don't leave I'm gonna send somebody back here and they're gonna cuff cuff you so it's gotten really bad pickleball players so they've taken over playgrounds okay which I support which for the record I'm again I support but here's where I disagree with the pickleball players they're taking over.

Tennis courts and this I oppose the kids [__] the kids no taking over the tennis courts I oppose this are guests that are coming on are Matt they're in New York and they're madder than a hornet about the pickleballers taking over the tennis courts I mean they are mad they've written a Manifesto.

I love it they have a club they think that pickleball is like the demise of society 100 it's predicting the failure of the world they have had it with pickleball I mean had it on the same level of the same [__] that we rail about times a billion right that's how mad these guys are we even we haven't written a Manifesto about.

Anything no but we're not above it oh heavens no we're not above it but no we just don't have the discipline right no and I read their Manifesto It's excellent lots of big words they're real they're as sharp as a sharpest tax yes yeah they seem very very very smart I don't know that we could write a Manifesto I love it so much when.

Somebody's so [__] mad about something and they've just gotta be in their Bonnet they're madder than Hornets I mean [__] Scorch the Earth about pickleball even though I am a lover of pickleball cult member you're pickleball over children Chief Kool-Aid maker [__] the kids bring the pickleballers I'm there when Jen and Nelly secured these.

Guests oh you are so excited I mean I'm you could get an A-list celebrity in here and I wouldn't be as excited as to interviewing these people this is Mike and Charlie from Brooklyn New York and their organization is called Club leftist Tennis I love it hello how's it going great how are you guys.

Nice to meet you I have to tell you guys when you committed to Be Our Guest I am like inject this yeah so excited inject that [__] into my veins the manifesto is fan I love the manifesto it is great but I want okay I want our audience know tell us what a leftist tennis player is we're both tennis players lifelong tennis players.

Uh we are both on the left politically and we figured that you know it's been uh too long of a time that tennis has been slandered as you know a country club Sport and we're reclaiming it as a as the people's sport okay so so I have to let you know I am a huge tennis fan but I also play Pickleball she's in a pickleball.

Cult I'm a part of the problem I am playing both sides I am a part of the problem and so and and I will admit it but I I want to know first of all what is your tennis ranking oh not not too high but our leftist ranking is way up we're egalitarian so we don't actually believe in tennis rankings.

who's your favorite tennis player my favorite growing up was always uh monthly because I loved that he would just implode and then bring back like the most incredible athleticism so I I I I would go with him you know I grew up as an Agassi fan I caught like the tail end the Legacy one of the most Vivid.

Matches to me was when Federer beat him in the finals so yeah let me ask you this which tenor which tennis player do you hate the most and why do you think Novak Djokovic is such a dick we have ongoing beef with two tennis players right now apparently good the first is.

Seven foot tall American know exactly who he is yeah allegedly was dating Venus for a while I didn't know that there were like lots of rumors swirling and if you go on their social media they would be like at each other's events for a long time and then it it seems like that's dissipated but that that was the gossip that we were told okay.

And then who else do you hate well Riley opelka I don't know if you've ever seen him on Twitter he's a big anti-anti-vaxx uh type guy um and then our number two that we have started to hate is uh Stefano stitzypos um who came out today um against feminism ruining the world are you serious so yeah he he should.

Really stay in his Lane which is like he makes good like himbo travel Vlogs where he's like wow I love having yogurt in turkey and it's like yeah stay in that lane you don't got to talk about feminism or anything else mind your business but I mean you I mean Novak Djokovic has to get up in your crawl with all the anti-vac stuff and him.

Saying get pray over a glass of water and and remove bacteria from it I feel like sometimes he's so crazy that we can't help but laugh like the thing where he just like touched bread and then decided off of like touching a piece of bread that he needed to become gluten-free blew my mind to the point where I'm like.

I don't even know that I can hate this I'm just like you were on a different level we've got to get on to what you've had it with because that's the name of this podcast is I've had it so I want to hear what you've had it with let's go well it's pickleball as as like a devoted tennis player what made you pick up pickleball in the first.

Place so I had long covet and it drug on for like seven months I'm fit I'm tall I'm thin I work out all the time and I just had this debilitating like long that's your dating profiles we just did an episode on horoscopes because I've had it with those and it said that as a Leo I was arrogant and I just proved that I just totally proved.

That but anyway so but I had this debilitating brain fog and my doctor suggested try you know playing chess or tennis or something so I started playing that [__] is hard tennis is so hard so at the time I was 47 and I'm trying to learn you have to do 75 things to hit a forehand and I was consumed with it watch all the time and I'm a Nut so I'm.

Taking like seven tennis lessons a day right so then some girlfriends and I were like let's go play Pickleball so we go play Pickleball it's a million times easier there's a great place by my house it's all designated pickleball courts no cross-contamination with tennis and it's called chicken and pickle it's only pickleball yeah we've heard about them.

Yeah I'm sure you want to take them down but I Googled the owner and the owner is a big Democrat so that made me feel good about all the money that I spend there right I read an article before y'all came on to pumps that was in the New York Post about apparently in the West Village there's this park where these kids are out there trying to play and.

The pickleball players have put down their courts and you know I I every I'm the skunk at the garden party I said [__] the kids I think that they haven't done anything with their lives I think the pickleball players they're adults they're paying for this [__] they deserve to go play Pickleball it wasn't a popular opinion okay I was accused of.

Being in a cult a lot of a lot of terrible things went down before y'all came on board but I still maintain [__] those kids well the city the city actually I think today or yesterday just put up big signs Banning pickleball on those premises oh unfortunately the city sided with the kids there's just no argument you can make.

Where a play area is for adults and not kids I mean you just can't sell that [__] period there was a there was a crazy article I don't know if you'd go this far but there was a crazy article and I don't know if it's one you saw where a lady was threatening to call Child Protective Services on parents whose kids were playing on that.

Playground for not respecting the pickleball space so she might be more hardcore than you I want to dive into the rage well to be completely honest we first found out about pickleball like through the media and at first our hatred of it was like more of a joke it was like this thing that I've been talking about and.

It's really annoying and I'm tired of hearing about it right and the more and more we heard about it the more Insidious it became all of a sudden it's like wait why is every single media publication publishing like five articles about pickleball that are just like stop how to play the game of pickleball it's not.

Even like covering the game nothing interesting going on in the sport have you guys ever played pickleball I mean I know that that would be we've stayed strong we've killed the line we had a couple for not second around we have a couple friends who have invited us um and you know I just feel like we would be letting down the movement you.

Know as As Leaders of this Nationwide campaign we really gotta hold the line did you've read the goddamn Manifesto and you cannot turn right you can't get back we're not gonna name names on this podcast but they know who they are and they're unnoticed pickleball's loud there's a lot a lot of smack talk going on which I love to do.

And there's some snacks talk during pickleball I'm not lying 100 I do I'm getting the Sensei smack talks during a lot of parts of life ding ding ding we have a winner but I think you guys want to completely dismantle and eradicate pickleball abolish it off the planet is what it sounds like from.

This Manifesto I mean I don't think we're gonna have to I personally we've talked about this a lot we're pretty convinced that this is a fad it's going to go the way of racquetball eventually not going to be hearing about pickleball too much in five to ten years I I'm gonna say I do think this is gonna have a little bit.

More longevity just because of the accessibility aspect of it my goal at the end of each day is just to be alone and so the last thing I want to do is go to dinner with a bunch of women and hear a bunch of yak pickleball's perfect you show up you can talk for about two minutes before then you play smack talk fun.

Then okay bye gotta run and that's it so you've spent time with people but you don't have to hear about the boring mundane [__] that's going on in their lives are the courts that you all play on in New York are they cross-contaminated generally no we play on public courts always here um there's some really nice ones there's.

The ones that are cracked and not so nice and um so far um the pickleball you know rise in New York has been limited either to private clubs or uh children's playgrounds they're they're picking their enemies wisely okay I want to play a game with you guys a game of would you rather okay okay.

Would you rather go on a hunting trip to South Africa with Don Jr you have to ride in a plane with Don Jr and Eric you have to share a hotel room with Don Jr and Eric and you have to kill two animals in Africa horrible with dark no one would ever pick that with Don Jr and Eric for five days or you have to play.

Pickleball 10 hours a day for five days in the most high profile public pickleball course in Manhattan what do you think wow I'm going with God Jr because they have the best books they've got the best cocaine and you know that's gonna be a great time and then I'll just get some earplugs for the rest right Mike what about you are.

You going are you playing pickleball are you going no we're going on the hunting trip see I'm telling you that's how much these guys we come this far right I've got another one you have to go campaign with Ted Cruz at his at his fundraisers at his.

Political speeches you have to get go [__] crazy with Ted for one week 24 7 with Ted one week or play Pickleball for two days these options sound so equally balanced I I may I may choose pickleball in this and kind of wear a shirt that says like I am a political prisoner.

Here's my point that's how [__] bad Ted Cruz is drags you may probably do a lot of blows you can tell by looking at Ted he's not doing cocaine that's not easy no no he doesn't have fun no fun he hates well we're just head stand on the tennis pickleball issue because that's like the only political thing I vote on.

What is your intention you know like I read an article in Vanity Fair like a year ago that Obama was playing pickleball Larry David was playing pickleball both of him I love passionately and like cool people are playing pickleball are they on your list I think they're on watch we're looking into who they're getting.

Paid off by you know we're seeing the you're following the money we're following the money big time I like it yeah it's kind of like that thing like when you see celebrities endorsing something this far like there's no way they're doing it for free yeah so we know that there's like some money involved we know there's a ton of people.

Investing in like uh Major League pickleball and such who do you well I liked watching I like watching um well when when uh Tom Brady and LeBron both bought their Major League pickleball teams they're the main sport they played they started to do horribly in so we're thinking there could be a little bit of a pickleball curse going on wait now so.

Watch out for celebrities LeBron bought one I think Steph Curry bought one Tom Brady bought one a bunch of celebrities yeah a bunch of celebrities are buying them but um because it's like the most shark tank sport ever do you even do you consider it a sport deep down in your heart or do you just.

It's more of a game I think we consider it kind of alongside maybe a cornhole or um yeah or like the the spike ball where you hit the trampoline uh ball have you watched on YouTube have you watched like a professional pickleball are you a fan of those because I've watched those with people who like pickleball and even them are like you watch you know 10 tennis.

And then you know you're watching Wimbledon and then the commercial comes on and it's like Timeless and it's Roger Federer yeah it's beautiful forehand it's like Rolex so then we start getting into pickleball God I really like pickleball but I mean God that I mean that pickleball Channel I mean it's really trashy.

It's the double-edged sword of being the you know this is accessible and not so snooty is that that tennis gets to have you know not that we have left us would love it but you know Rolex uh you know uh Mew Mew did a tennis line um Lexus that's a lot of class pickleball kind of gives me the Vibes of like when you go to like a a new Brewery.

And they have like badass IPA like this is not giving me this is not giving me like a a Roger Federer in like a a white and gold cashmere sweater vest going out on the Wimbledon Center Court exactly and I think like there is like some impressiveness but like the same same level as like watching someone do hacky sack tricks.

Like well timed and such What cracks me up about pickleball is very it evokes a lot of emotion like you guys are wound up like cheap clocks over pickleball so much so that you're willing to go on a cocaine Bender with donkey okay but here here's what I would say about the animals the emotion of pickleball is I think when you have uh.

All these fights over you know local tennis courts being taken over Child Protective Services getting caught on kids like all of this I feel like that's this this these these pickleballers getting hyped up on this like this juice of just like we're the most popular sport we're the fastest growing sport ever enter a player or Sport and then.

It's like you know we're going to end in a Jonestown type situation pretty soon let me tell you what I will make the goddamn Kool-Aid yeah she is in well we'll we'll come back and we'll co-host a podcast with you pumps after after that yeah yes we'll talk about what a net she was that it actually was.

A cult we knew it all along you sniffed it out well before I did but definitely we all landed at the same place who do you think's behind this this pickleball movement I I don't think that there's any necessarily one person behind it though it's very fun to allege that and when you have just a sub stuck account on.

Twitter no one can really stop you from saying whatever you want okay so my question is the only question that I couldn't wrap my head around in the manifesto was why is tennis less capitalistic than pickleball because we say so okay all right that's good enough for me I like it the serious answer is I think like there's a lot of people who.

Play on public courts especially in New York City who aren't like country club people and they get like kind of ignored as being part of like the tennis community that's probably true yeah so they're not just rich white people playing tennis who is your goat who do you think is the goat I hate to say it but it's Novak God damn it well Michael.

You're missing the you're missing the best answer here which is Serena is the obvious um right now yeah we're gonna invite him in the US Open next year open invitation if he wants to talk about you know communism if he wants to talk about vaccines anything he can come to our small Brooklyn apartments and we'll just.

Have a great time I bet he does that sounds exactly maybe he could take all the bacteria out of your drinks for you yeah and we will have no gluten around I'll walk on my neighbor's door and say I can't have gluten in the building I love it we we are all for uh open and civil debate no matter how wound up we are or you are you know we're gonna.

We're down to have it out everything should be um at Club leftist Tennis so on on Twitter it's at Club left tennis but I think we have merch on Big Cartel and we have articles from ourselves and a lot of actually really incredible like professional journalists um on our sub stack so Club leftist.

Tennis.substack.com to to read more more to uh to come to come be uh tennis pills thank you loved it love them they're great how much do you love because I said so it was the answer why I mean on the capitalist question why is pickleball worse than tennis right because we said so so nearly you live in Brooklyn you're.

Around people like this all the time how fun is that they're so great they're so great hilarious so what I want to do is I want to take all of you ladies to play Pickleball I really want to play Pickleball I don't know if this is a stupid question okay this could be a stupid question it could be I'll let tread lightly I'll let you know why is.

It called pickleball so the story it's a dumb name I'm gonna give it to you okay I wish it was named something cooler but the story is that on the west coast in the state of Washington there was a family and they were bored and they had like a wiffle ball and some paddles and they kind of made up this game and I've read it one article that said like their.

Dog's name was pickle it's really a weird name it's not a pickle it's a weird name and but it's a great fantastic stick and contrary to what Club leftist Tennis says it is a sport like cornhole yeah the hacky sack I'll tell you what I'm gonna get you guys out there and.

We'll check your heart rates and well then y'all can tell me if you think it's a support or not that's true okay everybody like us on all the things all the things the Subscribe subscribe to the things follow us on the things right right do your deal write a review only if it's really hateful.
