A highlight from Prioritizing Academic Achievement in the Education System
You couldn't pay me a million dollars a year to do his job, Mike. Why? If I'm not getting shot at or assaulted, if I actually do my job, there's a potential that I lose my job and get arrested. Why would you want to do that job? And then we wonder why we have less police officers. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick, along with Mike Speraza. Mike, back after a beautiful Labor Day weekend. Yeah. It seems like the summer finally turned into summer here in the last week of the, uh, you know, no school times because it's been weird all summer, rain, warm, cold, windy. And then this weekend was pretty much perfect from Friday on. Beautiful. Yeah. I mean, I'm thinking middle of August to like middle of October that might be the best weather maybe in the country. I mean, it's calm. It's like 55, 60 at night, 75, maybe even 80. It's gorgeous. I don't know why more people don't come here in the summertime because it's really a great place to be. I do feel bad for kids though, because they're going back to school and 90 degrees schools and that's never fun. Yeah. The heat wave comes at the worst time. Yeah. Feel for those kids. 90 degrees in a school with no air conditioning is not fun. I remember. Well, they're just going to have to suck it up. I remember walking to school and like three foot snow uphill, both ways, six miles, eight miles home. I mean, I don't know how that could happen, right? Yeah. But they'll remember, but in the wintertime when it's not 90, they will, well, I'll be going, ah, we wish it was hot and humid again. That's right. So, um, so football season is upon us, Mike, um, massive upsets in college football already. Um, Colorado led by Deion Sanders and his son at QB, um, upsets Texas Christian university, TCU, a ranked team. And then last night, Duke, Duke, who's known for basketball, right? Yep. They ended up beating Clemson of all teams. Um, so are you into college football too? I am. I'm actually all in on the Deion Sanders train right now, too. I love what he's done with that program. I love his, his fire. He's never scared of anything. Uh, I love that. That was, that game was a lot of fun. I don't know if you watched that live, Mike, that was, um, back and forth. I think 80 points were scored in the game. It was wild kick returns, interceptions, touchdowns. I mean, you name it. They had it in that game. It was awesome. What's cool. I think, and I'm not saying like, you know, losing sucks, but some teams have lost for so long. And then to see a coach, the Clemson coach with his head down and he's just, he's shocked. That his team can possibly lose that his team could possibly be throwing picks. And, and, you know, at the very key moments in the game, like I like that because then it shows other losing teams, like with, you know, the history of losing that, yes, if you just work your ass off, you know, come together, get the chemistry, get a leader like a Deion Sanders to come in and say, I believe in you. Don't let anyone in the news tell you otherwise. I love that. Well, that's why I like him. And, you know, to bring it to politics, like it's, it's, it's, it's the Trump model, right? Of just I'm going to tell you how I feel and I'm going to, I'm going to prove what I say. And it's fun, right? I mean, you, you need, there's going to be a lot of people that hate him out there. I'm not one of them. I think he's awesome. But he's got that the bravado, right? Like I'm not scared of anything. I'm going to tell you how I feel. And you're right, Mike, we're going to go from zero to a hundred and it's going to take us five minutes instead of taking us 50 years. And he did that, right? I mean, not to say they're going to win a national championship this year, but they're going to compete every week, right? And this is a program that has stunk for the better part of two to three decades, right? So they're going to be, they're going to be pretty good. We're going to be fun to watch. And it's going to be fun to see the show of Deion Sanders. Cause I love it. And his son is a stud too, by the way, his quarterback son is a stud. All right. Now how about your grand Island Vikings? Yeah. Yeah. 35 nothing win on Friday. So that's a good start to the season. Nice. Very good. We'll see. We'll see what happens here. North Tonawanda coming up this week, but, beat up Newport 35 -0 last Friday night or this Friday night, I should say a couple of days ago.
