Listen: Rickie Fowler, Larry Pierce And Saint Louis discussed on Gary and Larry
"And he went into the casino and he saw two hundred fifty to one odds on on the blues, and he kinda liked the price. And obviously, the guys get a little bit of disposable incomes. We dropped four hundred bucks on the worst team in the NHL on January, the third or January, the second and two hundred and fifty to one on his blues five days later, the blues, put Jordan Bennington is their starting goaltender Bennington goes on a run where he where they go twenty four five and one with him in net. They make the playoffs sixteen playoff wins later, their Stanley Cup champions and this guy turns his four hundred dollars into Auth hundred grand while what a hundred grand. Okay. Now, this is where it gets interesting, though. So he turns his four hundred into one hundred grand but how many people would hedge, I would hedge, I think most people would have one hundred bucks four hundred dollars on the worst team there. Well, my point is you have a chance, so berry had he turned down. This guy's got bowling bowls, because he turned down a chance to hedge. His bet he had a chance to cash in on his bet prior to the win last night over the Bruins in game seven when Saint Louis went up three two other bettors offered to buy him out for seventy five grant. So get this, he yes, you're holding a ticket, that's worth one hundred grants but somebody, but you could lose and you wind up with nothing and be down four hundred bucks or somebody could offer you seventy five grand. I gotta be honest. If I'm you know, I don't care if it's if I'm up three to, I still, you know, Boston still up three to yet, one game six and Saint Louis were terrible at home. So you knew you could lose. And then you're looking to game seven on the road in Boston with the Bruins fans are rockets and, and rowdy. It didn't look good. But you he. I mean what would you. Taken there. You made a four hundred dollar bit. You're either you can walk away. You win win. Loser draw after game five with seventy five K or say, no. What screw that? I'm going for the hundred kid does this guy gamble. Is there any any history is he like a guy wages on everything else? He's got he's got a few bucks because, you know that's my point if you're doing it for sport. And the money doesn't matter L A, write it out. But if I'm you know, maybe I'm going through a period where I am a little short. I got a lot of bills coming up. Give me that seventy five. You know what I mean? Give me that seventy five right now. I think I'd take seventy five anyway. Doing it for sport. You not even thinking twice what the hell I love lose four hundred bucks you, right? At the end of the day. It's four hundred bucks. You're, you know. Yeah, there's one way to think of it. You know, I take two seventy five I would have taken the seventy five as well. And if the seventy five was offered after game six now you're going back to game seven I don't know. This story doesn't say that it said that he was off. Other batters often seventy five grand by his ticket from them after game five with Saint Louis up three games to two. So you know you had two games to one or two two shots at getting one win. So it looked good. But you just never know you can take the seventy five in hand or the roll the dice and go for the hundred K. It's only you're only you're gonna roll the dice for twenty five thousand dollars worth. Yeah. The seventy five K and enjoy the last couple of games. Is he a blues fan? Yeah. Hardcore then. And that may have something to do with it, too. I don't really you know if I lose I lose. But I want my team to win. I'm going wonder on this man might take the seventy five K and go go of a big big night in the casino. I listened to blow, proud talk show host I do not want to be classified as it. Gutless wonder with you. All right. But for. Yeah f- she just told me in my ear that the guy was not rich. He's not, not a rich guy. Okay. All right. Fair enough. Hey, not the gutless one. That I will. We are the, this, the US open update sponsored by golf marred home of the ninety day one hundred percent satisfaction guarantee and also putting them Cadillac and blocked construction trust black construction Cattier construction project to success. So here's the update would you tell you as Larry mentioned. We got Scott piercy through seventeen at minus five going down the board. Mcelroy is nice not with Pierce now. Done. Yeah. So he's he he's at four under four under sixty seven. What are you got a McElroy McElroy? Okay. So Pierce at our Fowler's at five under. Yeah. Fowler's. Now, the leader just now just as I updated over Rickie Fowler. My guy, I've under through fifteen looking for his first major Larry Pierce. He's four under in his he's in with a first round of sixty seven Straka zinn at three under with a first round of sixty eight. So as a mealy agree low and. And the Rory mcilroy is three under McElroy. Of course, just had four rounds in the sixties last week at the Canadian Open, he's through sixteen holes in another guy that a lot of people think is a sleeper is Gary woodland, owes a thirty five year old golfer, ranked twenty fourth in the world played really well at the PGA championship. He's exceptionally long off the tee anyway, good. Gary woodland at three under through thirteen holes two shots of the lead woods. And what a what a pairing Justin Rose, Jordan speak in woods. Go at two two nine. So that's that's going to be the one. I'll tell you Ricky Fowler. I, I don't follow this hasn't won the guy, I want to see I think Fowler could be gigantic star. He just got a little flair about him as a young guy, the orange the all already got that he's got a girlfriend, that'll knock you out, you. She runs out on the course when he went them knock. Q out. I mean she just that attractive there. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be impressed. You may not get out to, you know, don't act like you're not rest. Well, I I love Fowler. I love Fowler. He just takes away the thing of, of the stodgy old guys lean over a putt. This guy's young each fresh colorful and so follows my guy who you who would you pick. I told Murph, I like Tommy Fleetwood, Tommy Fleetwood got three finishes in the top five this year last year at the bird at the US opening finish one shop on KEPCO. So he you know, he's, he's an interesting guy to keep an eye on. But this is, you know, this is going to be interesting because DJ Dustin Johnson, Rory and speak all or attempting to, to end major droughts. And then you've got tiger who's already won a major this year. And then you get kept going, you know as the eight to one co-favourite with Dustin Johnson going for three US opens in a row. And this is all happening at pebble. Beach. And then the guy that if I if I was betting, I would throw a little money on, is Henrik Stinson, because from what I'm hearing Gary, the rough is, so I haven't seen the first round yet, but the rough is so punitive at pebble that guys who can land it in the fairway off the tee with some consistency are going to have a shot this weekend. So Henrik stents in is a guy who is really accurate off the tee right now. And I'd be honorable. He's teed off yet, but stents in this guy that I'm looking for this weekend, maybe content. All right. We're going to get back to the warriors here after I do the Murph and MAC, Tommy, tea and Lund contest between seven and nine Murph and MAC, gave you a six hundred and eighty dollar keyword of the day. And then you go to Kamiar dot com slash cash. You enter that key word of the day, and listen to Tom and John in the afternoon and see if you're selected as lucky winner, so one more time the ideas to have you listened to both Brian, and paulie and then. Tom and John and win six hundred and eighty dollars. Sponsored by bay alarm. Alright Marcus Thompson is going to join us in a few minutes. I you know, we were both speculating on who would open tonight at center, and I thought, like I said cousins, offense, try and get some points early in and get him on his game. But we just had young kind of turnover covers his stuff he's he agreed with me. Yeah. You expect bogut to start you sit. Yeah. He said he just said, cousins is gonna stay with that second unit, because they get a balance out that scoring fits crystallized beautifully and the files today. Really did? I mean, I don't want suck up to fits, but crystallized it he really well. I mean he just he basically based, he pointed out that in his opinion that you maybe expect to for seventy points at curry Klay, and drain on, and that you need. You're going to need roughly forty points. You're gonna have roughly forty more points from somebody. I mean, give you an idea. Katie had voice at ninety five points without katie's eleven in game five so they're going to need forty points from somebody not named Steph curry Klay Thompson, Draymond green. Who's that going to be, and what's the best chance of that? And to me, it's it's one of two two guys, it's either. It's either green attacking the whole, you know, throwing passes to guys laying it in dunking or it's going to be Quinn cook. It's going to be Quinn cook. Well, maybe getting hot and hitting three or four threes, but that they're going to need. They probably need both those things to happen. They probably need cooked to hit three or four threes, and they need green to wind up with, like a thirteen assists game where Jordan bell, and bogut and, and Livingston all have at least six to eight points. That shows you better. They are with all released. Fact, he made the NBA, but when you have Quinn cook has to try and save you. I think I'll make my. The thing is always sixty points out of Thomson curry, I think he got a chance to win. If you don't get that much. I don't see where the point you come. And so we'll see. And sixty out of those guys that means you probably need sixty from somebody else, or something, a four hundred twenty and somebody else. Yeah. Or from some collection of others. Yeah. Well, that's a tall task and Draymond is going to have to have a seventh game like he did a few years ago. You know where he just went crazy, put it in his hands and let them attack. Yeah. Let him attack attack the rim and the other key in tonight's game heap. Andre Iggy dollar out of foul trouble Leonard against dollar shooting thirty eight percent. Why Leonard against every other defender at the warriors throw at them shooting sixty one percent Andres. Gotta stay on the floor. Yeah, positive.
