Youlisten to your favorite podcast and also look for us on amp TV, a MP TV, so today's guest I've known Marnie fora long time through mutual friends of ours that we met her and her motherSusan through Dr Mayor and his wife, marine and so Marnie has beendoing so amazing things. She comes from a amazing family background, she'swritten some great books. That really shows her love for sports football.Freddy and the fumbl is it fumble dog. Is that right? Yes, I'M gonna show I'lPA right. Well, pull him up, but you've read a lot you're going through everycity. Today our guess is Marni Schneider Marny. How are you doing?How's everybody been through this time with covid. Well, thank you God, thanksfor having me, thankfully everybody is doing really well, I'm really fortunateand my mom, as you were just saying, you know we're a really close family.My mom is now living with us, and so that's been a really great thing,because I get to kind of oversee some of the day today, activities that thatshe's doing, but my kids are doing great theyre. You know all teenagersand somehow they're managing to you know, be able to follow the rules andlisten to me and still keep smiling. So that is a good thing. I'm very gratefulfor that yeah! No, it is hard and its time to have everyone home we've had akind of rejust go back to our high school days when the kids were homeevery day and- and you know my wife and I were empty mestors for a little bitnow everyone's back home, but we really enjoy spending time and getting a laughwith them every day and finding out a little bit about. You know the adultsthey're becoming so going back before we were adolted when you were kidgrowing up in Philadelphia. What is that first memory that you had offalling in love with sports? So you know I had this very uniqueopportunity to get to go to a professional football game as a younggirl, because my grandfather Leonard Toes own, the Philadelphia Eagles. So Iremember that whole walking into a stadium and seeing thousands of peoplecheering for the team and being like well, what is this and then learningthe game? And I think once I learned a little bit about football and that youget you know four chances to get another four chances and just some ofthe nuances that happen with it and the cheering and just the whole camaraderieof it. I fell in love with football and I'm so grateful for all the experiencesthat I've been able to have just based on knowing the game of football, just atiny bit, not as much as you guts, but certainly knowing it a little bit andand impressing from people at times. No, I'm sure you know a lot of it, andprobably just as much as me, but so, if you think about going back when youwere Kidand, you were walking to those stadiums and thinking about yourgrandfather was he like? Was He an owner because that'ssomething he saw as as economical and it's a franchise that I can build and Ican generate well from it or was he a...

...fan Idi? Oh, he was definitely a fan,but I think that for my grandfather, what he saw football as was ha way togive back to the community. My grandfather was an incredibly generousman and you know he wanted to be able to do big things and like coach formeal would say to do big things. You got to do big things, so I think thatfor my grandfather owning the Philadelph Eagles, he bought them inthe late s. He realized that when you own something like that, it's not justfor yourself like the greedy grabby kid, it's like. Let's open this up to theentire community and invite people to be part of our team versus you knowjust making it kind of an exclusionary thing. So I would say that mygrandfather, probably as an owner, did not use owning the team to be a revenuemaker for him. He definitely gave away a lot of things and use it as a tool togite back to the community and give back to others, which is really what heloved to do, and so I guess, T ef. They love your job. He really loved his jobright now as the granddaughter of the owner. When you started going to thesegames, you would see the game day stuff right. You go there and all the fansand all the everything that's going on, but every other day you know, there'ssix other days in the week. Did you get to go meet the players? When you were akid, did you get to go, hang out at the stadium or their practice facility? Idid you know I'm in a daughter. My mother was a teacher and today'steacher appreciation day. So I love teachers. My mother started out as ateacher and then my mom ended up going to Lo becoming a business person goingto law school and then ended up taking over the position of first, the first female general manager,Legal Counsel and Vice President of a professional football team. So there Iam. My mother is a single mom at the time with a young daughter, so youbring your kids to family business. You bring your kid to work, so I spent alot of time kind of watching what was going on at the stadium. Obviously Ihad, I could have been a Lebro from Calcutta Gusin and my friends were youknow my High School Guy Friends were always invited to the Games and got togo into the locker room, but I did learn that it is a business. My Mom wastrying to run it as a business. My grandfather was really trying to dosome big things to give back to the community, so they were a good, a goodblend, but I definitely had an opportunity to watch what was going onmeet the coaches meet the players. Learn the language see the dedicationsee the discipline. You know study a little bit from coach for Meo on someof the great and they definitely help shape where I am today and learn thestories and just hear all those great stories, and so I'm so grateful to havehad those opportunities so yeah. My daughter was always that way. She wasalways upset that she never like after the game. I would take my sons into thelocker room. They always got to go with me and you know, because I couldn'tbring my daughter in there. So I think she's still always a little upset withme that she never got to do that. I said honey. You didn't want to go inthose locker rooms after the Games. Believe me, so I know my I don't talk about it. Imean I did travel on the team plane, but you know at that point I was kindof sent to the I got on the plane. I had my bag with my walk man of mycassettes and my batteries and was sent to the last row of the plane becauseyou know they were trying to do business and it wasn't a place for ayoung girl to necessarily be kind of you know. Reading team beat or whateverright so you grew up in Philadelphia. Did you play sports as Kup in Philly? I don't know what areaof Philly you guys lived in in the suburbs. You know I was ahorseback rider. I definitely did that and I played field hockey kind of allthe the General Sports Field Hockey and then I managed the baseball team. ILove Baseball. I had a really unique opportunity because my mom was aworking mom and at the time the Eagles shared the stadium with thePhiladelphia Phillies. So during the dog days of summer, when I was Hungrand there was no activity on the football side, I could open up a doorand wander around to the Philly side and they would take me in and give me ahot dog and a seat to a baseball game. So I got to learn a lot about baseballjust from those where the you know,...

Mike Schmidt era. So that was a greatthing. So, during high school I managed I got a versity letter for managing thebaseball team and I was definitely involved in sports and certainly saw alot of football games and and and really enjoyed getting the opportunityto watch high school games. I Love High School football and then also seeprofessional football too yeah. My daughter, I know fild hockey is big inPhiladelphia. My daughter played in college. She went to Haviford Yeah Yeah.That's that's amazing yeah. So she was a goaliat Haviford for four years andthen now she's at Penn in vet school. So I know Philly kind of well not aswell as you, but n really enjoy going over there. So what high school did yougo to in Philly went to a Piscoball Academy, oh epispo, okay, yeah thet,and then after high school yeah, you go throughhigh school and you know your grandfather owns the eagles and like so.What were some of the conversation is that you hade with your mom and yourgrandfather about like hey, you're, going to go to college here, somethings that you should probably think about studying or doing what did youhave some of those kind of conversations with them? Well, you knowmy grandfather was in the trucking business PRI. You know in addition toowning the Philanelph Eagles, he didn't want you to be a trucker, thoughwelldrive a lot now. I think I feel like a professional truck driver. Sothank you to them right now, boy, they're, really helping us out. I thinkthat my grandfather had said something about in some ways I mean they werealways reluctant and I guess it's kind of like having parents who are actorslike you know, don't do anything in football, don't do anything ofprofessional sports, but that was not really. You know. I think parents saythat kind of as their their default mechanism and when I dwaited so Ialways love professional sports and I always loved you know, writing andreading, and things like that, so I went to Penn State and after Igraduated, although I graduated in four years and now what I'm realizing islike the smart people stay for five and happy valley, like the dumbbells getout in four years. Like you know, it's such a good place. Why are you gettingout in four years? Nobody wants to leave. Oh, I know I got out four years.That was, I probably you know I probbly could have dragged t out a little bit,but I, when I graduated from College- and I had a great time at Penn, stateand coach Praterno was there and he and my grandfather were very closed and,and it was just so fun going to football games up there and then, whenI graduated I workd for the NFL films, I went directly to work for Steve Sableand again you know I wanted that position, but I mean I think truthfullySteve had to hire me. There wasn't Gointo Ra. He really. He had no choice.I mean I called his dad uncle Ed. So I have a feeling you know it was Stevewas really convinced that you know I was going to. You know not take theposition, but of course I did, and so that was what happened and it was agreat. It was a great learning time for me to work for NFL films. I learned somuch from Steve and his dad too, because they're such pioneers and whatthey were doing. What were you doing at n? Fl Films, were you? Were you like editing? Were you justkind of figuring out what we're going to film or were you just what was yourjob and NFL films? So I started up. I really knew nothing other than I knewabout football. So when I first got there, I really I worked for Steve andI helped Steve. You know Steve has such a great system of how he did asinterviews. Everything was very consistent. I mean you kind of looklike Youe could be doing a stevesable interview right now, black t shirt, youknow never a white teacheris, black or navy tshirt and everything andso. Iwould work with Steven and let the teams know what kind of some of thequestions were going to be happening. What he wanted everyone to look likehow we really wanted to conduct his interviews and then also in addition tothat, I would cut negative, so the film would come in and I would get therebecause I had to learn everything, and that was what Steve Really suggested.So I saih okay, so you go into the negative room. You take this preciousprecious footage. You were gloves, and...

...then you take a list that the editorshad, then you know created what they the shots they wanted and you would gointo a room bundled up in a down COAC that was very cold in those room sothat the film didn't get damaged and you would splice negative and cutnegative together and then help them create their highlight reels or thehighlight film for that week. This I think about how far we came. We wentfrom this film that was, you know on his big reel and you had to go in andlook at the negatives you had to cut it tape it back together, Ye it skip tenminutes or whatever it was, whatever people wanted and then put it all backtogether for a five minute highlight reel or whatever. Now it's all digitalyou get on your phone. It's it's so fast that it's just incredible howwe've come as a society. For that O, unbelievable and the storage. I meanjust the security to get this the where the film, because it's hits preciousfootage, and there were so many different- shows that they were doingthey used to do the obviously the football follies and they would do thethis is the NFL show. So so many different things and then part of Iknew a lot of the inside stuff. Just because my grandfather owned the teamthat you know whether the footage is allowed to be sold, whether it's notallowed to be sold. You get four or five days to air it for free in thelocal markets, and then, after that, then they pay for it, and so it was sointeresting to not just view it as okay. Here's some great footage os some greatplays that were made. That will be history from the you know: ProfessionalFootball Hall of fame eventually, but it a it's really amazing and then thewhere they store all the film is really why they needed so much space and theythey kept building and building and building to keep all the footage safeso that we can continue to look at it and have it yeah. Do you think thatthey've I mean they've had to take a lot of that made it digital and justkept all those negatives back in a big vault like you're saying and so that wecan have them forever and preserve the history of the NFL? I mean what SteveSable did in his his thought process and his long game to this was reallymade. I would say: COMPANIES LIKE ESPN like if it wasn't for Steve, sable,ESPN ND, I don't think would be roud right. I mean, and the whole history ofhow nfl films got started was because his dad Ed was you know, filming hishigh school. He went to Haverford school right, not so uncle Ed wasFillinang. Steves High School Football Games- and you know Steve- was anamazing marketer. So when you work for a Steve I mean Steve was really such agreat filmmaker and a great story, teller and an amazing marketer himselfof like what really how to prevent. You know the collapse of the NFL. You knowhe really provided us with this opportunity to learn about the insidenuances of you, for example, and his questions were always so good and hisinterviews were always so great that everybody wanted to be part of NFLfilms. And today I mean it really is the kind of Bheleader. I think it'sfalling off a little bit because now digital and everything else, but backthen I mean just the Super Bowl preparation. I werk rerceived duringthe Super Bow N, one thousand nine hundred and ninety one, and that wasthe Whitney Houston singing the national anthem ier, and there was youknow forty two cameras and where everybody was going to be an just thelogistics of it before the game started. It was really unbelievable and now it'syou know, definitely a different, a different scenario, but getting realfootage of that wash something so amazing to be part of thanks your listening to us on ridiocomo. This is Gusrott with Hutdlo up with Gus, and you can find us on amp TV, AA,MP, dot TV, so marning. I think back to that and talking about NFL films and ththe what it has done for our game, and I mean it's really taking the NFL tothe next level really has because, if you think about all the history andeverything you did with NFL films, I put the NFL on the map really becauseas TV and as everything else started...

...getting better and better. We neededthat footage. So after NFL films, you spent your time there. You did a lot ofgreat workan and learned a lot about marketing and everything else. What wasyour next step in life? Then I against everyone's better wishes,including Steve. I moved to Hollywood. I was like you know: Wha, I'M GOINGTOGO CHECK OUT Hollywood and everybody and Steve in particular. He said. Oh,they don't. Like they, don't they don't. Sports is a very different and this wasback in the s and he said to me Marni. You know what I don't think. That's agood idea, because people don't understand sports in Hollywood, they'revery different. Now. Obviously, sports is the biggest game in town, but backin the S, it really wasn't so, but you know against Steve and my family'swishes. I packed up my suitcase and I said I'm going to go to Hollywood andI'm Gono'm glad, certainly glad that I did. It was a great experience. I wasthere for quite a while and ended up acting in a couple movies and learninga lot about a to Mak in the rightand process and the entertainment businesswhich is you know, certainly has changed now dramatically too, but youknow it was far from the East Coast and so a couple years we moved back backeast, but I love being in Los Angeles when I was there. Definitely the thebusiness was changing and I learned a lot as well and that's kind of alwaysbeen my. My motto of life is just to go andlearn and listen and pay attention, and then hopefully you can translate thatinto something relatable going forward. So you know you hear all these storiesabout like when you go to Hollywood, it's very tough to break into, and youhave to have all these side jobs right to keep, keep your living and make somemoney. Did you have to do any than were your waitress or anything like that tohave your side job where you're trying to be get into the movie business? Yes, my thide job was. I worked in themailroom at the William Morris Agency. So, and- and so I was in the mail roomand it legitimately was an Autum, it was a room filled with nail flots andyou would put the mail or you would have a little pully cart, that youwould distribute the mal to the different agents and then the when yougot promoted when you were able to really do the mail flot very well, thenyou got promoted to be driving around delivering packages, and I will saythis because it's funny- and so there were a few different routs that youwould take. There was a you know: Hollywood rout. There was the studioroote. Then there was the westside route and sometimes because I you knowwas not from Los Angeles and not from that area. They would say that I was Mr,which meant missing on Rodeo. Take a lot longer. I couldn't read a map. Iwas like wait. What is this Thomas Guidebook Hawway? This thing this sickand you had to you, know, map out where you were going and it really was all n,the Oh, the go over the Canyon and the this forget it, but yeah. So then, Iwould drive around and deliver packages, and then they kind of figured out waita minute that might not be the best idea for a bunch of young, relativelyattractive women to be knocking on the od people's homes and deliveringpackages. So they said, do no, I think everybody's going to come back in theoffice and they started t hiring out. You know male services to deliver themaile in the packages and then I ended up getting promoted and worked for anagent and Learne the business and at the same time, was pursuing a littlebit of an acting and a writing career. So I got to kind of learn it from thethe back side of what was the agent job. In addition to then having some insideactivity to go. Do some audition start your day, sunny side up at the Westen,bonaventure, hotel and Suets, and enjoy breakfast for two on us? No matter howyou plan to spend your trip to Los Angeles start every day with a heartymeal to kick start your morning enjoy breakfast for two on US each day. Youstay for reservations, be sure that premo code S for B appears in the Promocodebox when making your online reservation at Mariottcom, Backsla, lax,bw or call one eight hundred twto,...

...eight Hunnine Te udred and ninety, andas for Promotional Code, SFOR B. So what were that two movies that you gotto act in so I well, I think the biggest one that people still can quoteand I get my really nice residual check and when I say Nice I mean they're, notI mean it's always nice to get a residual check. I'm not they're, nothuge checks, but the wedding singer, so Ye Joyce the flight attendant in thewedding singer, and that was lots of fun and Adam Sandler is very funny andvery nice and a great person to work with. And so that was a great thing andthen there was a Renezel Wagger Crisso Donald movie called the bachelor that Iwas in and for coninuity's sake, not performance sake. My part was kind ofedited out a little bit, but I still get some some residual checks on that.But so that was fun and then I realized hat was like you know. I think I'drather go. Do some writing and kind of go back to my roots, which was sportsand football versus that you know Hollywood movie star thing I was kindof over it and said I think I like sports, I think Steve Sable was right,should have lived a do, em right, right, ofoball and sports ar MiG thing, butwhen you're young you got to try everything right and that's what I tellmy kids. You know if you have a passion, you want to go, try something go! Do ityou only! You only live once and you're, only young once and and that's the timeto do it when you, when you have those kind of urges, you got to go fallthrough with all of that, and I think that's great that you did that becauseyou probably Learne so much and and the worst part is if you would have neverdone it and then always say what. If what if I would have been out thereright, I think that's that definitely true and that's the thing Ithink that, like I was so, I was so fortunate that I had really supportivefamily members to understand that to say: okay. Well, we don't reallybelieve in it and we don't really necessarily think it's the right thingfor you, but go do it and we trust you and we know you're going to be safe andwe know you're going to be responsible and reliable on all those things, andso I'm glad that I did it and you know the fun thing is that, like lately, thewedding singers been on a ton. So all my friends ill screen shot my scene andthen like. Oh thank youthat, so nice that's a great way to keep an juch witheverybody, because they, you know they see me handing out hot towels to Adamsailor on the plane. So that's not too good right. Well, you know, I think,what's amazing is, if you think about editing like movies is like the biggestedit of all I mean how many times do you have to actually shoot that scene?A lot I mean, then you do it from different camera angles, and that's theone thing that I love about sports is that there are no doovers, and I thinkthat that was one of the things like with entertainment. Was that you knowyou get? Oh, you can redo it. If you have a bad day, you don't have to showup you don't, but with sports you know you have a game. You're, sooting upyour playing, you might have family issues, you might not be feeling great,you might something. That's bugging you something whatever it is, but no, no,no! You are going to sut up you're going to bring your best performanceand you're going to play, and I love that about sports, and that's reallyhow life is. You know you really get now. Obviously, during a game you get acertain timeline to. You know bring your best, but you don't get a chanceto kind of. Oh I'm not tie, I'm just hired today, I'm just going to stayhome. So that's what I love about sports and what I love certainly aboutfootball, is that we get to see people doing things that maybe a we couldnever really do, but also at that moment we're sitting in our you know:armshare having some some chicken wings and me watching amazing athletesperform despite the odds yeah, you know and yeah. It is, and you do hear thatat ' such a good point that you hear about athletes that have gone throughso much off the field and then they get on the field and that's why, as anathlete you're taught to ance your cross, those white lines, you justleave everything else go and you focus on the game because there's nothingelse that you can do besides play the game, and I and a lot of coaches whenyou're young and where you teaching...

...sports is a young age. That's whatthey'll tell you all the time hey. You know you might had Abat, your parentsdropped you off and they were going at you but forget about it. Let's Jus goand focus on football, so you learn those things as a young person insports and basketball and baseball and everything else cross those white lines.Now it's this just this and then, when you get back there, you can focus oneverything else. So now you're flying back from California going back toPhiladelphia. What's your next step in life, so you know, philanthropy hasbeen wait. One thing about what you just said about crossing the whitelines, there's two things that really strike me about. That is that a coupleyears ago I saw this beautiful interview with no seawn Morino and atthe time he was playing with the Denver Broncos and they said, and he was nevery time they would play the national anthem. He would be in tears andabsolute tears and beautiful. It was just so poignant and they said well, noSean. Why are you crying? You know? What is it? Is it the song? And he said:Oh, it's the song definitely and I'm with my teammates he said, but what itis is the fact that I am appreciating this moment. I might. I will never getthis moment again. I might get injured everybody' here right now next week itmight be somebody different, somethings, different we're not going to be playingat home. Who knows so? I want to embrace it all and soak it up andappreciate it as much as I possibly can right here and right now, and I justthought that was so beautiful and it's such a great way to live life, and hereally got it like. He totally understood the importance ofappreciating the now and everything else, and so for me I always look. Oh Ilove to. I don't know him personally, but I would love to one day have achance to thank him even just for that reminder that we are doing this andlike just to enjoy the moment because they are fleeting and we just don'tknow what is next. And so you know- and I think that and I'm not sure I thinkit was Buddy Ryan and before football games he would not only would he do hispractice with his teammates, but he would also practice the lineup of thenational anthem because he wanted, because, with his whole thing wasthat's the first time that the team that your opponent gets to see yousuitit up and he's like, and I want my guys looking tough and I want themlooking like they're ready to play if they are scraggly and if they're notprepared for that National Anthem Lineup, then we lose we automatically lose. So Ijust love that mentality that you know you suwed up to play, but you reallyhave to have it to understand a the presentness of being there, but alsothat when you it up to play it's for real and it's not a joke and that's whyme, as a fan like I just love the whole sixty minutes of football, so Wuldsegues into the net step for me was really you know. Obviously,philanthropy was a huge part of my life. My grandfather was one of the originalfounders of the Rongal McDonald House, something I'm incredibly proud of whathe owned: The Eagles Fred Hill, who played football for him Fred and hiswife friend their daughter, was diagnosed with leukemia that turnedinto this wonderful charity called Eglfli for leukemia, and then thatturned into the Ron McDonald house. So what I wanted to do was to figure out away, and you know my mom is very philanthropic: Loves High School Sports,loves getting families out there to support the local high school kidsplaying sports. Doing things like that. So what I wanted to do my mom- and Isaid, let's figure out a way to highlight all these great experiencesthat I had as a young girl, traveling football. All these wonderful thingsthat I got to do that people, don't even they don't even you know, go intoa game as a luxury, letting let him one going to a looto game. So we came upwith this idea of writing. A Children's book series called football. FreddyFreddy's base loosely on me. Well, not loosely she's fase. She is me but andfumble the dog game day and in all of our books and so far we have seven ofthem. They take you on this great tour through the city, so in Philadelphiayou get to go to the National Constitution Center. The Liberty Belllearne about Ben Franklin, learn about Betsy Ros, some of the great thingsthat are part of our country, and then you end up at the stadium to learn alittle bit about football, because I...

...think football in sports is theuniversal language Yeah Right. So getting back to your grandfather,starting to Ronnal McDonald house, it started in Philadelphia. Is itheadquarters in Minnesota? Now? No okay, so the headquarters are in ChicagoChicago it Chicago, which is where the McDonald's corporation is headcorner. UI do of work in Minnesota and I become very, very close m. An I've been veryfortunate. I've met some of my most amazing friends that run or work at therontel McDonald houses all throughout the United States, I'm so fortunate,amazing people. So the first house is in Philadelphia and they justcelebrated their forty fifth anniversary yeah at yeah it it'samazing. It's really truly remarkable and now they're almost like many hotelswhat they do over there. It's a big operation, so the first house opened upin Philadelphia in one housand, nine hundred and seventy four and then youknow the NFL picked up literally picked up the ball and ran with it. The SecondHouse you know, Mr Hallic. He was a huge supporter of it, the Second Houseopene up in Chicago and Mr Crock. They were really supportive of the wholecharity and what it meant and calling it. The ronal McDonald House thatreally started because of raising money through the stale of shamrock shakesthe former president of McDonald's. In the mid S, a great man named Ed Rensy,said: Okay, we'll do this, shamrock shake thing and you're just going toname the Ronal McDonald, he house to Ronda McDonald House and mygrandfotherwas like fine he's. Like the letter toes house he's like, I can'teven get one of my wife to Saye my house o down a lot better than Leonar joeshouse. So that's really how it happened and now there's houses all over theworld. There's hospital floors dedicated at helping families, and it'sreally truly a remarkable remarkable charity. So I get to do a tremendousamount with the RONAL McDonald House and I'm so fortunate. I meet tons offamilies and I love to hear stories and share my history with the house, whichI think once people heare, that it really started from a family who had asick child. It changes everybody's perspective, a lot of people, don'teven know the history of Urmh and once they do, they love the charity evenmore and today's giving Tuesday. So I'm definitely making you know a big pushto give back to the charities that that one likes. Obviously, for me, I have afew favorites in Ronald McDonald House is definitely one of them. So tell us alittle bit more about the specifics of the Ron McDonald house of of if I havea fan or somebody listening, and they need to use it. What is it forand how can they get in contact with with the RAW McDonald house? Okay? Soif they're, if the Rona McDonald house, they are an amazing charity, you can,if you have a sick child and the age is, you know very, I think it's like tntwenty one, an under but theyre, always exceptions. If you have a sick childand you need a place to stay, then you can reach out to the local Ron McDonaldHouse so a lot of times families travel from all over the world. So, forexample, in Chicago there is families that are coming from Russia coming fromAfrica. They will reach out to the Ronald McDonald House and they will geta place to day. So the Rong McDonald House has a beautiful. You know you geta room with your own bathroom and you get all these wonderful perks ofstaying an the Rona McDonald House, a family type community. There 's alwaysfood there. They do amazing programs for volunteers right now. They can't dothat because of the covid virus, but you can go in and you can donate yourtime to make meals for the families. So the Famili stay there it's free ofcharge, I mean maybe sometimes a small little feet. It really does vary, butyou get this amazing experience of really knowing that you're taking careof and thet. You have a place to stay so that, if you', if your child is inthe hospital or if you're, dealing with a sick child, you have a place to dayand that's something that, as a my...

...oldest son, when he was nine months old,he had nere Lasdoma. So he did not walk or talk to his almost five. We traveledwith time we were living in California, but we traveled a lot to Philadelphia.We did not stay at the Ronnol McDonald House because I had family inPhiladelphia, but I mean I know what it's like to have: a sick child. I'vehad a sick child. Thankfully Jonathan now is my av guy. In addition to Iaddition to other things, you know a great student and a nice man and ofloves playing football and so forth, but I'm having a sick child. When youhave a sick child, all you think about is you're a sick child getting yourchild. Well, so the Ronal McDonald House provides you with a place to stayso that you can really focus on your child, and if you have family members,then other children can stay there. It really eases the burden of knowing thatyou're going to be dealing with doctors and hospital appointments and all sortsof things that as a parent, you never really plan on and now suddenly youhave this in your life. So the wrong McDonald House gives you the tools todeal with. You know managing your child's health care and not you knowhaving to worry about all the other things that go on when you're a parent.No do they also have therapists and I'm trying to think of other things.You know because if you come in yeah, if you'R, if you come in as a parentand your child was just diagnosed with this debilitating disease or whatevermight be- and you have no idea what it is you know my luckily Annie was whenher mom had a gliobus stoma mot formate. She had brain cancer and he was a nurse.So she knew how to diagnose. She knew how to write about it. She knew how totell everybody about it, but a lot of people don't have that. So is thatsomething that the Ronald McDonald hous also provides the families theyare, soso so wonderful with that they offer so many programs. They offer opportunitiesfor families to be together. They really are so sensitive and andsensitive, and also managing to be incredibly- and I love this wordrelatable to everybody's experience, because it's different and you mighthave you- might have heating restrictions and they're sensitive tothat. You might have certain things that are part of your lifestyle and theRonal McDonald House is very sensitive and empathetic to all of those needsthat you have as a family and, if you're, not from our country, if you'refrom a different city, they certainly open up their arms and their motto iskeeping Families Close. So that's really what they do. The old motto usedto be the health that love built, and it really is true because it really isall about love and about giving back to the community, and that really goesback to what my grandfather and certainly what he wanted to do when heowned the pootof Eagles was fine ways to give back to the community. I knowthat when the eagles made her to the Super Bowl in one thousand nine hundredand eighty one, he took everybody, he was really the first owner who saidevery the janitors are coming: Let's go, you know you had eight hundred peoplethat he paid to bring to New Orleans, because his whole thing was it's a teameffort. Yes, we've got amazing athletes on the field and great coaches andgreat mines and great scalts and great everybody in there. You know rolling uptheir sleeves to make a on the field operations happen, but it doesn'thappen without the Ganitors wthout. The ticket takers, certainly that thecheerleaders everything. So I think that that's really also one of thethings that the Ronnald McDonald house does too. Is. It really lends itself toopening up an opportunity to a family that they might be able to go to a game.They might meet new friends in that community. They'll certainly get anopportunity to work with ha social worker learn new things. I've done abunch of you know: I've gone to a bunch of ran McDonald houses and had theamazing Pili privilege to do book readings and share my books withfamilies and get to hear their stories and they always bring in great guestsand at the Super Bowl a couple years ago. This is something I'm really kindof proud of. I say it jokingly. Some of the MOMS were actually more interestedin hearing for me. Do A book reading than when Brett farvs walked in, and Iwas like, no N. No, let me educate you...

...everything and go to bret far. Pleasejusthe's old go talk to Bret Farb, I'm not that cold.He is you know, so, no t that is great. We're joined by Marni, Schneider andwe're here on RADIOCOM, you listen to Gus, fron n huddle up with guys soMarni. If you think about that, and and you know you have this incredible of abook- You wrote about- you know these experiences you have when you go tosporting events, I think the way you did it was brilliant. Your you and yourmom come up with this idea. Now. Does every rol McDonald House have yourbooks in them? Well, a lot of them, I'm not everybecause there's over three hundred, but my books are all okay. When thecoronavirus hit. I had called my publisher and said: WHAT CAN WE DO? Mybooks are all available on Amazon and Barnes and noble through the publishingcompany. So what we did over the past couple weeks is now we put the PDF onour websites sif, we go to football FREDDYCOM. The books are all availablefor free on the website. Tons of Ronna McDonald houses do have my books andI've donated a lot of books and a lot of certainly a lot of materials tothose houses. But not every house has it. That's one of our goals is to giveyou know, books to every house, certainly Philadelphia, Long Beach,Minneapol Lis, Miami. A lot of places Pittsburgh a lot of places do Chicago.I've done the ton of work there too, but our goal going forward is to makesure that it's to you know potentially put together a little library in allthese houses, because I think reading is a great coping skill for familiesand obviously I want to share a my love for travel. My Love for tourism, mylove for history y love for football through my books, yeah no great, so Ithink, what's great about your books too, is that you give this wholedescription of the cities so, like I can imagine when you come to Pittsburgh,you may visit. You know the Hinds History Center. You may you may go see,you know the stadium, the Pirate Stadium, everything that thatPittsburgh is about the incline. You know everybody talks about Premanis andit's an old sandwich shop. It you know. But so when you go to a new city, Ithink you said you've written what seven books- Seven yea seven so thatthey're all in fl cities- Yes sothey're all in fl cities, so the Carolinas wasa little bit different because it's two stayes one team, so you take a throughNorth End, South Carolina but otherwise yeah. So it's Philadelphia, it'sPittsburgh, Chicago Green Bay. Dallas is just you know. Dallas is done. It'sabout to come out is available on Y on my website, Atlanta and the Carolinas.So you get a for of those dities. So do you take your family with you and said:okay, WE'RE GOING TO GO! Write a book about the Miami Dolphins, all right,we're going to go visit Miami we'reoing to spend two weeks there and go to somegreat places. That's going to give US IDEAS! Is that how you do it? How doyou count up with the ideas of what to put in your book all right? So that isa great question. Thank you. A lot of it is based on some of the things thatI really loved when I was a kid. So growing up, I had this reallyunbelievable experience of getting okay. Now nobody would do this when you L, wewould land in a city, and my mother and grandfather would get in a car and theywould go work and I'd be Putt in a car with a strange person. Foun SI. Couldyou imagine if somebody did that now you wouldn't maybe hoobor maybe, but Imean no, you don't put like a fourteen year old girl in a car with a stranger,be like we'll see you at dinner. Okay yeah happened to me, so I would be inSan Diego and I would go to the zoo. I would get to go to the GA. You know allthese different places, and so a lot of it was based off some of the the thingsthat I like to do when I was younger, but definitely nowadays I do take oncewe kind of get some of the. We highlight the places that we definitelythink we want to put in the book and then I will take a tour down there andsay: okay. This is great. Let's do this. Let's do that. Find ways to make it funand interesting so that families can either do the football fredding andfumble tha dog game. They tore themselves or they can say. Oh, I wasthere. Oh, I know that place or yes, like you said, I love Hamanni brothers.That's amazing. I went there when I was...

...younger just so that everybody kind ofhas a frame of reference of some of e. The big things are in Philadelphia.Obviously it's hat steaks or oh. Yes, I loved going to the stadium and Hereiswhat the stadium looks like just soid that everybody can really share theirstory, and while there are words- and I definitely spend a lot of time- writingmy books- There's also wonderful pictures, like you said you know, ofHindfield, of the incline of all these different places, whether it', ifyou're in Chicago, you know having the opportunity to see soldier field. Whatthat looks like in the history of that, so I just get excited being able toshare my experience of those places and what they really meant to me and thenalso new places that weren't there. You know twenty five years ago, when I wastraveling around Valet stay and play on your next, get away to Los Angeles, theWestern boneventure hotel and suits offers efforliss access to all the cityof angels has to offer whether you're hoping to catch a concert or suportingevent. Our hotels, just moments away from all the action and accessible toHollywood, beaches, museums and theme parts. The package includes a guestroom and valet parking for reservations, use promocode PSF in the codebox whenmaking your online reservation or call one two UN, three six, two four onethousand and ask for Promo Code PSF, Oh yeah, like when you used to go to DC.It was RFK and now it's I don't even Fedex field, it's Ik Ge, spaceshipLandin in Middle O. Nowhere you know I loved RFK for what it was, and you knowthink about. Even when I came in the NFL and you were riding around, youknow all these new places, a lot of the stadiums aren't even there anymore,because o kind of crazy. I know, and that's one of the things I will saythis- that you know I loved having Games now, I'm not in. I did not playthere. I actually O. Sometimes football players will come up to me if they knowmy history like Willi mcginniss, is one of them and he'll show me like agigantic broken finger and he's like this happened at the vet. I'm like I'msorry, I'm sorry Willyi o. You know I'm so sorry apologize I'myk yeah, but you still want a lot of games. It's fine! Okay, just right! I the thing is like yes, I love thehistory of the older stadiums and I do think that we kind of have gotten alittle bit away from some of that stuff. Like the history of veteran stadiumreally was about. You know my grandfather loved hosting games at thevet. He was a veteran. It was really important to him. He loved having theArmy Navy game at veteran stadium. He was, you know he served our country, soI think for him. The pride of that is definitely different than going to agame at Lincoln financial, but you know it's also again it's just about findingnew ways to create your own family history together when you cheer on yourteam, whether you're watching it live or this year, I think we're going to bewatching it from our armchairs and that's why I think my books are sogreat. Certainly right now is that we can't travel to these citiespotentially, but you can certainly pick up a copy of football, Freddy and learnabout those dities without necessarily being there and getting ready for theday that we can travel there yeah. No, I think that's that's wonderful, and soyou do football, Freddy you're doing the Ronall McDonald house- and I knowyou have another charity that is very important to you and your mother. Canyou tell us a little bit about that? Yes, so recently- and you know my momand she's such a champion of so many causes. So yes, certainly for me,Ronald Mcdonald House, there's another great charity that matters to me, whichis dog, is my copilot, because I have rescue dogs and I love animals andthat's really important to me and autosm. My best friend from college orson is autistic, so asing autism, which is a great charity in Pittsburgh,they're really important to me. We've done a lot with them, but alsosomething that's really hit home hard to me is altheimers, my mother, who ismy best friend my biggest sheerleader, my I mean the the Matriarc of thefamily and certainly has been such a great advisor to so many was recentlydiagnosed with frontalobe Damencia, and...

...you know it's a devastating disease.All diseases are devastating. What I've learned about Alzheimers and Damensiais that you know the first time you get diagnosed or that a family member getsdiagnosed. It literally is like getting punched in the Faich and then,unfortunately, this disease, there's no hope you don't have the hopefulness oflike Wol. We do this this and this we maybe no there's no hope it is a deadenstreet. So you kind of keep getting punched again and again and again untilthe end, and then you have to mourn the loss of what just happened. So I'vereally become very dedicated to working with the Alheimer's association,helping them with whatever it is that they need to be done. I know that thatfinding a cure or finding any sort of remedy is definitely not. I mean it'sdefinitely not going to help my mother because we're way beyond that, butknowing that there's so many other families out there that are going to besuffering this disease. I would be out of my DNA to not roll up my fleeves andtry to find ways to help out so that going forward, I'm not a casualty, butthat I have friends I can say: Oh you know here, go do this or this mighthelp and really feel like I've been evolved and been an active participant.You know on the on the field of sorts, helping out and trying to make adifference, yeah so you're extremely busy. It sounds like that that you knowyour life work now seems to be giving back helping. Others raising your threekids taking care of your mom, so you're extremely busy. How do you fit all thatin to a day a week I mean it sounds like you just. You need an awful lot ofhelp. Well, you know I have an amazing bunch of friends. My kids are reallygreat. My animals are certainly very supportive of me and I've been blessedwith a lot of enter with a lot of energy. So that's I mean I know I meanthat's really the gift, so I take care of myself because I don't want tosquander that like. I know, that's a gift by feeling, good and beingenergetic, and those are h things that I'm blessed with not everybody has thatin theire in their body. So I try to take good care of myself and I don'tdrink and I don't smoke and I've never really been that kind of person anyway,and in addition to that, I really try to just kind of follow the basicguidelines of humanity I wash my hands. I don't touch my face too much. I triednot to I try to be a good person and for me, the best way to feel good is togive back. It's the only way that I can really reset myself is by giving back.So I think that that's made a huge difference to me is knowing that, ifI'm feeling kind of melancholy from some of the things that are going on,certainly watching my mother of who is such a bright, shiny, light, definitelykind of get a little bit dimmer. The by me giving back that kind of puts moreenergy into me, and I ow I have I'm lucky. I have some really nicecaregivers that are part of our day today, life and and I'm so thankful.I've got great friends and I am very fortunate, and that is something that Iam very appreciative of, and I want all my friends and and family and love onesto know how much I appreciate them, because it's really a gift. It is a gift and you're doing anincredible job, and we appreciate you for all the work that you do of helpingand giving to others. I mean that's. That's a lot of selflessness and I think that that youdo a great job with all O that one last thing we do here on Hutdl upwith gests. We call it the NOHUDDLE, no hodls brought to you by aunt TV. Sohopefully everybody can go onto MTV and check us out on hotel television, butit's the NOHODL. Where I'm Gonno ask you some questions. You can make themshorter long whatever, but it's our time we're going to take this time todrive it in and hopefully score the winning touchdown here all right. Sofirst question: Marni is what is your biggest pet peeve,...

...my biggest pet peve? It's probably somethat I do, which is no! It's going to be something that I do, which is, let'ssee, leave dishes in the sink, and it's something that I do and I'm like God. Ican't believe Thi dishes in the Stik. So that's like yeah. I Know Annie Wuldjust for years, Wutd yell me to Gwas she hates when dishes are in he sink I.Finally, after twenty five years, I think I broke her of it, but she stillyells at me all right Teo. What is your favoritesports movie, Ohjerry Guire Jurem, very good. I lovethat choice. I mean I love Cameron, Crow He's my favorite movie director,almost famous all his movies. I love Jeren Maguire, it's great and then okaywait a minute, but that's there's a Caviot that, of course, invincible ismy other. Like I'm tied, Jrmer Blir, because I know evints, I love tince. Iknow the story, it was there. You know young girl, but definitely invincible.So you know Vince is an amazing Vince and Janet are wonderful people andthey've supported my mom and heard you know charitable endeavor. So betweenJermaguire and a vineball you can't so invincible. I've watched you like sixtimes. I love the movie too. How close is it to the real story? How do youfeel when you watch it? Do you feel like it takes you back to when you wereliving through it yeah o? Definitely I mean I was very young, but I mean okay,so in the in the real world I think you know vent was I thinkment was a teacher,I'm pretty sure. Vint was a teacher and I don't know if they touched on that inthe movie. But it's legit- and I will say this- that coach for meal with afew exceptions, Coachir me Hade, three kids in real life and only two in themovie but Mark Walborm- did an amazing job, greatCaner, as coach for meal, the guy that played my grandfather had the suitsdown. Pat, I mean it really it's very very close to home, and I love thatstory, and it really is such a great story about overcoming H, obstacles,putting you know putting in the work and everybody says, and I'm fortunateenough to be friends with, and it's amazing like whenever I get an email orattext from coach for meal or Vince Botalli, I'm like I'm. The luckiestperson in the whole entire world coach for meall. Have my number and he'llsend me all he pictures of him and my grandfather. So I feel really that's ahuge. You know, I feel very, very fortunate to have that, but he truly ifyou could survive coach for meals, training, camp, everybody says that wasthe hardest training camp. If you could survive that, you could do anything inthe world, that's great, I'm a little jealous as well. All right, I got ta feeling FilanEagles question for you real quick who was the number one pick by thePhiladelphia Eagles this year in the draft ohshoot wait a minute the not Oh,my goodness see I'm a football fan now gus, not okay, so I do know that that they id, Ido know that jail and Hertz came in the second around okay. So I do know that.So, let's see that's a that's a goodquestion. My son is going to aly torture me because he's really pickedup the vitanas. The Eagles Fan I now with all of my books and now just afootball fan. Okay, we'll say that was the first pick of the draftis year. WasFootball Freddy Yeah all right? If you had to go back in time a ND andvisit a young mardy right, what advice would you give her you flying on theseplanes you're going all over the place? What advice would you give her stay in your lane of sports? That'swhat I would say is don't try to do things that weren't really in yourfamily history stay with the charity side of it or stay with the footballside of it, because that's where your nexis is and when you kind of go towhen you veer too far off from your nexus, it creates it's not a bad thingand I've learned a tremendous amount, but it doesn't really it's going totake you a little bit the course correcting's going to take a little bitlonger. So that's what I would say was to stay. You know stay with consistencyof your family business, which is sports and charity. Lesn't, listen toSteve's, able right in te Sei, know:...

Lright you're, a big filly fan allright. You love all Philly sports who's, your Mount Rushmore, Philadelphia,sports, legends, myokay! Well, I would say this probablyforgetting football, but I do love Jawarski and I do love wover,Montgomery and those old O, one thousand nine hundred and eighty oneeagle guys, but I think that Oe Thu, Ninen N, eight phillies might be youknow tug Magra, Mike Schmidt Ghoese, that team just the Grit Bob Boon thatteam to me and watching them, and I was there when they won the world series.That was something just so fun because it was the first national championshipthat I'd ever seen happen so being able to be part of that. So I would say thatand then, of course you know the most. I love coach, Peterson and and Nickfoles and Carson Wednts, those guys, the the new crop, although MIC cous notfill it up anymore, but coach, Peterson's, amazing he'll, never beforgotten. That's for sure. Oh definitely, nine! Okay! What is yourfavorite album or song? Okay? Well, I would say that myfavorite album. I love that. I mean, of course, I'm going to say this, but I dolove the band the Eagles Hotel. California could be one of them,but certainly more current. I am a huge fan of Florida. Georgia line, okay,lofe Florida, George Line, I love them and pretty much all their alltheirsongs, I think, are great. If I was had to pick one of their songs. I wouldprobably pick let's see her JHEEZ. I like somebody, their songs, AlRight, wait. I might have to now change it to no I'm going to go with. Let's see Florida, George Uly and what's myfavorite Song Cruise Cruise, all rightwe'll, take it we'll, take it okay,so your mom, your mom, was one of these women who broke all therules right. She was first GM legal counsil. She did all these things thathat no woman has done before and if you think about that, there's beenwomen who have led the way for equal, equal opportunity and justice andeverything else. What do you think your Mount Rushmore would be of women whoave who have broken that glassberrier that ceiling? Well. Certainly, my momis definitely at the top of that list and I think, as far as women, you knowgetting an opportunity to a lot of my friends who might notnecessarily be in the in the public eye, but I have so many friends who aregreat teachers and my best friend Stacy from college she's, a teacher inPittsburgh and I'm so proud of her and seeing watching how she's done my otherbest friend from college and she's done. A lot of you know public health andWorld Health things. So I think that for me it's you know not necessarilyabout the women that are in the in the public eye. It's really more about justdoing the heavy lifting of the day to day responsibilities that often getoverlooked. Just because they're, not you, know, posting about it on theirsocial media sites. So much so I would give a huge shout out to all of mygirlfriends and also now. I would say this that, certainly because my mom isnot been able to be as vocal of an advocate of mine. I you know my MountRushmore of the women out there or my friends my heart sisters. I call themwho have really picked up the ball and are now advising me theway that my mom probably would have, and certainly I am so grateful for thatright. Yeah nd, I like the Mord to use all the heavy lifting right. There'sthis tweet that's going around. It says you know this is what the world wouldlook like if women weren't in it- and it was just like guys, going crazyrunning and no stop lights and it was there's no is Justa. Everything wasunorganized and I'm like that's so true like if, if it like, the world wouldjust be a crazy crazy place if it wasn't for the incredible women we havein it well. Thank you guys. That's definitely true, and it's nice that youare so sensitive and understanding of...

...that. I know you know you have a greatwife and and she's lovely and my mom is a big fan of hers and I you know. Idefinitely am grateful that I threw my mom and some of her relationships thatI get the opportunity and that's really through football too- that now I'mfriends with people like vents and coach for meal and a lot of otherpeople just through my family connections, and that is something thatI am very appreciative of, and you too, because you know I met you, you knowthrough my mom's connections and that's so nice yeah. That is really nice andit's been wonderful and you know I know everything that my wife went through,raising our kids and and then after they were off to college. She goes backto college. She gets her master's degree and now she's a social worker,and you know almost e, almost a license clinical social worker a few more hoursto go before she can take your test, so she's been working really hard andreally proud of her for everything. She's been doing so a couple more question: fradulations.Thank you. Thank you. So if you could switch with one person out of all the people that have everlived in this world alive or dead, who would that person be? If I could twitchwith t one person for well? How long am I doing your Git one day? I get one day with that person. As thatperson I mean I guess like for me. It would probably be Tom Brady Tom Brady wha you. I want to see whatthat's like I want to see. You know I'm curious to see what, at this point nowI mean Tom has had such a legendary career, and you know I'm curious to seewhat a day in the life of Tom Brady really is like, because we all think Imean we could do that job. You know. I've always said like a great game showwould be like. Oh when people are like, I could have made that pass. Oh Yeah,if you do that path, you can you know you put somebody in that kind ofscenario and and see if they could make that actual play or whatever, and thenthey could get a salary. For that day or whatever it is, but I think you knowcertainly, I would like to see what it's like to be one of the best. Maybeit doesn't Hav es Wi, be Tom Brigyven and I'm pretty open to being put into aposition of doing of anybody's job for one day. Anybody that's really donesomething for a very long time. I want tod, I'm surious about that versussomebody, that's just kind of starting out yeah. I think I would want to goback in time just because, like now everything is recorded- and you know somuch about people through social media and and how videois just sent out liketo me to go back in time and be somebody that is that you knew about.But you really didn't know anything about. You know, I'm saying all right,the WHO would it be? I don't know like. Sometimes I look and like go back, okay,what what was it like to be Johny, Unitus, waght? You know where you knowwhat he does on a football field bike that every day today, you don't knowlike. I just think for me: It would be going back tin time a little bit andfinding somebody that was famous but not Joe Nam. It Abo Tony Yeah. Wellyeah I mean I don't know. If I could take it tione day might be enough.That's for sure. I think right. You know what was it girlfriend three orsomething? What was the name of the Bar Yeah? I don't know, I don't remembersomething like okay, oneone last question and Aon enwill wrap up okay. Why should somebody go and visit? Philly? Okay? Well, you know Philadelphia, wellthe city of brotherly love for one all right and that we document that in thebook, but I think that Philadelphia, Fil, O Mi, it's a bad rap. I mean and Ilove Philly. I grew up in Philadelphia because it's really truly before DCcame along. Philadelphia is the birthplace of our country. So you get ehistory there. You have great, you know great people, I mean Philly. We cansometimes be. You know a little rough on our you know on our sports teams andso forth, but I think that's dissipated a little bit now that there's been somewinning, but I think Philadelphis a...

...great place if you're going to get anopportunity to go see some of the historical sites learn about BenFranklin, Betsy Ross at great art museum, there, Amazing Food and it's aneasy city to get around and if you're on the east coast, it's an easy city toget in and out of, and I think that you would actually learn a lot and feelconnected to the United States of America fromvisiting Philadelphia. Great Great. I love that answer, love, thet, answer.Okay, so tell us and all of our people that are listening where they can get ahold of you, how they can get your books and what every every connectionthat you have.
