Taken from JRE #1627 w/Dan Gable:open.spotify.com/episode/0cQwQgJxzEdeEMgfWn8HrE?si=6d0eadf625014b61
Spent a year at Iowa w/ Hawkeye Wrestling Club Dan is an unbelievable man n coach. He saw everything in that wrestling room.. EVERYTHING! U didn't dare take a minute off at practice!! That room had incredible wrestlers, every practice was physical hell!!
The mean streets of Waterloo Iowa. 😆
Wow Dan Gable on jre
80-83 Penn Charter high school wrestling room in Philadelphia, PA, we had a huge poster of Dan. I always remembered that.
This guy should have managed Hulk Hogan.
Myself being a farm boy born/ raised in iowa. As a little kid going up wrestling in iowa Dan Gable was a god. High school he was someone to look up too and now he's a role model.....
''the good ol days'' only really applies to white people in the way he's talking about
He's spitting facts though. I grew up in Wisconsin through the 80's 90's. Cops didn't have the pure money incentive like they do now. "For profit" jails have changed how they interact with us.
at 00:00 i didn't see were this would go, but i stayed, i listened, i liked his voice and his story... at 09:00 i didn't know how to think of his story. It made me think about myself and not being so fearful.
When Dan Gable stands up, Chuck Norris flinches.
I had a dog named Gable. He wasnt as legendary as Dan, but a good boy none the less.
I wished Rogan would've asked him about Catch wrestling. Gable knows a lot of cool little details unknown to majority of internet about Iowa's wrestling history which is full of original (Catch) wrestlers; including two of America's all time best: Farmer Burns and Frank Catch. He also met Billy Robinson in the 70's on the movie set of "the wrestler". Actually according to Gable, Folkstyle wrestling was still known as Amateur Catch as Catch Can wrestling in Iowa when Gable was still coming up as a young wrestler. So he definitely has a story or two to share.
Great video overall 👍
Did alright in Wrestling modest guy. For those who don’t know he was the Michael Jordan of Wrestling.
My high school coach said "you boys are looking good there in the showers, show me what size you can get your wands with soap"
joe where is episode 331?
That's some Police white privilegie right there.
PLS INVITE DEVON LARRATT IN YOUR SHOW
Back when men weren’t pussies
I got to meet Dan gable at a Tom brands Dan gable wrestling camp in Iowa when I was in high school my dogs name is actually gable I wore Dan gable wrestling shoes this man is a legend
The good old days
Wrestling made me tough. Coaches work you and show you the way. I loved it. Took me to mma. And becoming confident. I also helped alot of people in dangerous situations in bars.
Met him fishing up north in Minnesota! Was pulliing my boat to get gas. Had a Wrestling T shirt on and just started talking with us..I was like hoky cow Dan Gable..Talked mostly fishing..
Wrestlers everywhere know of Mr. Gable. Gable Grip ftw.
Growing up as a wrestler in iowa I still remember the first time meeting Dan. This guy is the most genuine and sincere man you’ll ever find. We were in Des Moines for the state wrestling tournament. I was young and running around the hotel with my friends and saw my mom talking with an older man in the hotel lobby. My friends and I all recognized him immediately and went to meet him. We talked for awhile and we all asked for his autograph. When he left my mom turned and asks “Who was that?” She had no idea that she had been talking to the most famous wrestler of all time for the past 30 minutes about youth wrestling and how great the sport is for raising young men. I had multiple other encounters with him growing up as many other wrestlers could tell you he makes a point to be a part of the community and spread his wisdom to the youth. We couldn’t ask for a better advocate for the sport and for the state of Iowa.
I love listening to old legends. Joe is so good with the older guests. Very intuitive and respectful
Mental Toughness = YMCA plug. I love it. Breaks my heart when I see communities without one. It was such a huge part of my childhood as well. Dan Gable is a wrestling legend. Even for people who have no context for him or the sport, you just know this is a guy to listen to.
The good old days is the reason why his mom was an old woman still living with an abusive husband but hey f*** it right Not anything against dan or the convo just saying.. Dan is obviously a great man.
BRO HE LITERALLY DIDNT ANSWER THE QUESTION
That's my Grandma's high school boyfriend! RIP Grandma Pam 💚
the good old days might be debatable depending on context, but if we look at the entitlement of of the youth these days it's pretty apparent that something is missing.
Joe come back to NLdron fucker :,(
Man looks like a more rugged Robert redford lol
"Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easy." -Dan Gable
I guess the answer was the YMCA?
Some of the greatest things to ever come out of Iowa, Dana Gable and Slipknot
The atmosphere of a typical wrestling practice. The 100 degree room, pushing your body past percieved cardiovascular failure. Forcing to keep fighting your opponent when your mouth feels like its got 100 cottonballs in it. It teaches you perseverance.
The second chance no longer exists
Joe, fuck your Spotify deal, get back to Yt.
Class act. I graduated in 2006 and Gable was still considered the baddest man to step on a mat. He created an intense culture of competition that runs through the entire sport.
You think so? That was right on the heels of Cael Sanderson, you don’t think he matched up to Gable?
Old school guy that people could learn alot from..logic in every word he speaks
Bob Siddens one of the greats changed the world through this man
I got to meet gable once at braggin rights with indiana vs illinois and he was a fuckin dick. Great wrestler with a shit attitude and I lost all respect for him. Maybe this might change my mind but doubtful when he was my hero and brushed off interaction with me and others around him like it didnt matter at all.
agh old person stories. so boring yet so rich with lessons.
This is an old dude who was getting special treatment in a town that was obsessed with high school athletes. Still occurs today. Nothing special about it either.
I didn’t hear him explain why he is mentally tough. I heard him give examples of how he was already mentally tough as a young kid, and how circumstances made him tougher. But he didn’t imply that same upbringing would result in a championship mindset for other children exposed to the same. Thus, those circumstances are not what gave origin to his mentality, it came before that.
I only wrestled during my Senior year of High school, but I learned so much about perserverence and mental toughness during that handful of months... Best sport in the world hands down
never thought Joe would have this legend on! I grew up In Illinois and Ohio two wrestling powerhouses wrestled for 10+ years and this man and Burroughs were always a huge inspiration, once you’ve wrestled everything really does become easier. Having a bad day at work doesn’t come close to being on your back pinned down fighting with everything you got to belly out and getting a raise buying a dream car/home whatever doesn’t come close to having your hand raised after a hard fought match for me. Absolute shame the olympic committee ever removed the sport in favor of racewalking badminton and that thing where girls twirl streamers
"I liked the good old days." Me too sir.
I grew up in a different time and a different world as this man. That was my initial thought before listening, and now I realize how wrong I am. Something about his raw goodness shames me in a good way. Thanks JRE.
I am a Pennsylvania wrestler, and I approve this lesson.
I wish I could watch the rest of this.
U alway on drugs is so sad
Boring. JRE fell off. Lazy clips by Jamie. Boring guests and over paid and fraud (onnit)
Holy shit it's Dan Gable's biggest fan, Dan Gable. Would you believe it
Of course the world is a better place for more people than ever, but my definition of the "good old days" is all about autonomy and anonymity. The days when you could get lost if you want and do what you want as log as it didn't infringe on someone else's autonomy. Today it's all about the collective whose purpose is to protect everyone from life, whether said protection destroys you or not.
Great guy. Great wrestler. A true legend. But that youth fight story was complete BS. Ask any body language expert
Go look up the homicide rates in the top major cities for the 1950's. Then go compare them to now. The good old days were far better.
He would have fatallied that kid if his dad said there would be a McDonald's Happy Meal in it.
I'm born and raised from Iowa I wrestled for Waterloo east high school my senior year fell in love with the sport that year when I graduated I turned to kick boxing every now and then I'd ask people who met Dan and they'd say he's a egotistic jerk not my statements it was there's but you can't really take people's words till you actually meet the person but I'd say this living in waterloo you gotta be tough they don't call it little Chicago for nothing (319)
You need to get kyle dake on your show!!
YOU RAISED THE ENDING VOLUME AGAIN! COME BACK TO NLdron JOE SPOTIFY IS ISIS!
When your balding in your early 20s u must be tough
I met him. Amazing coach
The difference between now and the good old days is the amount of people that are here now instead of then
My adversity growing up was when we ran out of my favorite flavor of Pop Tarts😒😉
Dan Gable wrote me a short Letter after my dad passed, I’ve met him twice, great man.
Joe !!!!!! Please call him out dude!!!!!
This dude is either so social incompetent or he’s full of shit! I believe he’s been through what he says but had embellished it to suit him for this show.
Sure. The good old days might've been good for you. But if he was from the Garcia family, it's a different story. Especially in 1950/1960s
That's how we grew up in the 80's as well, now days the parents are jumping in fights that kids should be able to figure out. That's why these kids all have guns, because their all scared to death of a good fun all out fight. Nothing can replace getting punched in the face and responding like a man
He barely answered the fucking question...
Dan's concept of the "good ol' days" comes from the observation that high trust societies posses a good deal more pro social mechanisms for crisis intervention then low trust societies.
I’m from Waterloo. Can confirm
Joe lies to his audience now.
All you BETA liberals, take notes!
Awesome Joe. Thank you
The good ole days sounds like white privileged was in check.. Today it is now unchecked.
Cool podcast but damn Gable is rambling about non sense! Wish he would have actually answered the questions.
Thank you excellent ✌🏾💕🙏🏾
Down here in Panama still that way you get a second chance it's such a nazi land
My great aunt was an amazing woman, eccentric, lateral thinker, a mentor. She took me to learn skiing & one day I punched a kid who was being a bully to me & others. My aunt went to talk to the other boy's dad & it all got straightened out, but later she told me if it hadn't gone well she was getting ready to punch his dad! Maybe one thing Dan Gable is saying is with great adults around who don't over-correct you and are on your side a child can learn confidence in themself & learn what they're capable of.
Joe Rogan brings another random freemason on to his show, nothing to see here.
“Win with humility, lose with dignity. But dang it don’t lose!” I love hearing quotes there’s so much wisdom and life changing lessons that follow them.
Much love from Waterloo IA
Joe Rogan comment section
SALUTE to Gable. Solid dude... great interview. Coulda been 12 hours loved it
Literally only white people like the "good ol' days"
I met him at UC Davis giving a speech, I have a signed photo of him on my desk. I put a post-it that says “What would Dan Gable do?”
I grew up 30 minutes from Iowa city, we idolized him( my friends and myself), so for my 12 th birthday present I was given an Iowa wrestling camp experience from my dad. The first day of camp about 100 or so of us sat in the Iowa wrestling practice gym, and here walks in Gable. He walked back and forth for 10 minutes squeezing a tennis ball yelling mental discipline and what it takes to be the best. When he was finished you could have mopped up the sweat from the floor from him just from him getting worked up. To say he’s a gladiator would be an understatement. If those walls in that practice room could talk.
I believe in the second chance. I know we all want our second chance
Some cool as* cops
Such a incredible podcast for our sport.. first Burroughs on JRE and now the National treasure Dan Gable. This is amazing !
Meeting him was the highlight of my wrestling career. He is an amazing man and athlete.
My teammates had the pleasure of meeting him at the nhsca duals down in Virginia Beach a few years back, I was a little upset when I came back to them and they said they met him.
Here's a REAL AMERICAN. Too many fakes nowadays.
As someone who grew up in Iowa, almost lived at the YMCA and a wrestler as well. He is very relatable. All through high school wrestling, we always talked about Gable
@Nick Recker oh yeah there’s a large element of masochism lol you made the right call by not going out. Practice is one thing but the cutting will haunt me forever.....eat A saltine and spit in a cup all day then practice lol
@Shoot and Scoot ahaha you have to be cut from a different cloth to be a wrestler imo. We would see the wrestlers conditioning during basketball season sometimes and it just looked horrendous. Wrestling coach used to ask me every year if I wanted to join and it felt like being recruited for the army.
@Nick Recker right? Yelling about hawk pride and all that got us fired up....then coach ran us practically to death lol looking back it was a strat to help coach work us harder.
He talked at our school one year and since he’s such an Iowa legend a bunch of the parents were all there in the gym bleachers with us 😂 very inspiring guy
Same man lol the toughness is just coach cranking the heat and screaming PUKE AND RUN DAMMIT! NO ONE TOLD YOU TO STOP RUNNING! I never feared an opponent....I feared coach.
