And what you know about a rod getting involved. Yeah i'll tell you chris. I've been following this timber. Wolves sale for years. Glenn taylor's been looking for a successor for a long long time and even for me. It came out of nowhere. So really you know. He has had several occasions over the last five six years where he sort of flirted with other possible groups to come in and take things over eventually from him could never get a deal done or agreement or an agreement in place and then this just this last week all of a sudden sort of nowhere. Come alex rodriguez and marc lory. They get interested. They tried to buy the mets. Last year didn't quite work out for them. And they got connected to glenn taylor as his search for a successor was dragged on. They got with him and met with him last week. And it with one meeting on on monday and then another meeting on saturday the ball just really got rolling. Very quickly If you guys know glenn taylor all he is a billionaire but he really wants more than anything to have personal connections with the people. He does business with and go up. Alex rodriguez and marc lory. Really kind of did a good job of showing that this was more than just a business transaction to them and i think that he really appreciated that very intimate gatherings this last week to hash things out there. Still some is to be dotted. T's to be crossed there in this negotiating period right now but all of the big things have been agreed upon the price. Keeping the thing in minnesota. All these other things that have happened. So now they're progressing toward really finalizing this thing and everyone's operating under the assumption that it's going to happen so john let's assume that it actually does happen and as i understand it from reading your stuff. It's going to be a couple of years before a rod and his partner are in control. Glenn taylor will slowly hand this off over a couple of years so we may not see the impact immediately. Whatever that impact might be someone. I ask you the impossible question because of course this is just now happening and to my knowledge. No one's even really been able to speak with iran and partner about what they might do. Do we have any sense. Of what a shift in ownership might mean after obviously a very long run by glenn taylor because the franchise has had more bad than good if not for the existence of kevin garnett. It's pretty pretty desolate. And so if there's going to be a new direction charted. Do we have any sense of what that might be. Or what new ownership new energy might do for this franchise. Yeah i think that's that's what it is. It's kind of new. Energy is what has to happen. Here.

"Chicago's city motto is orbs in Horo Latin for city in a garden because of its many beautiful parks nevertheless abundant. Greenery isn't what comes to mind when most people think Chicago something. People do associate with the city corruption in the news media. Chicago style. Machine politics has long served as useful shorthand for bribery voter fraud and all kinds of election. Rigging four of the State's last eleven governors have ended up in prison the University of Illinois at Chicago ranked Chicago as America's most corrupt city. It's also debatably. One of the last cities still running a true political machine to understand why it helps to point to the late nineteenth century across America. New Emigrants arrived in the US and were told to register for political parties precinct. Captains directed them who to vote for in return politicians doled out government work notably in Chicago. Irish immigrants were promised control of the Police Department migrants then especially non-protestants had been shut out of most private sector jobs. The only way to make sure new arrivals got a shot. At the American dream was to provide them with government work. Political machines sprang up in every city to service. Those needs in exchange for power in most of America. Political machines eventually collapsed as their leaders lost elections to reformers from the opposition party but not in Chicago. The city really only has one party. Chicago's last Republican Mayor Left Office in. Nineteen thirty one ever since it's been one big democratic machine even though the state of Illinois has had numerous Republican governors in the interim that's the environment in which rod are Blagojevich. Cut His teeth in politics by the way that initial doesn't stand for anything. Blog has no legal middle name but uses are to honor his father Rod Blagojevich Rod born in Chicago on December tenth. Nineteen fifty six was proud of his father's Serbian heritage. But he was even more proud to be American. As a child he fell in love with Elvis Presley. The King of rock and roll he watched Elvis's performances on TV learning to sing all his idol songs. He could even mimic his body. Language that swagger would later serve him. Well in politics part diehard Elvis Fan Parts Sports jock young Rod Sprang into working as a shoeshine boy with a prodigious memory. At an early age he learned to memorize long lists pretty soon. He was using that same method to remember everyone he met. But Alas while Rod had some unique gifts he wasn't born a genius after graduating from High School in nineteen seventy five with lousy grades and test scores. He headed off to the University of Tampa. Currently Tampa is ranked by Forbes as the four hundred thirty third best university in the United States two years at Tampa was all it took for Rod to buckle down and improve his. Gpa In one thousand nine hundred seventy seven at age twenty he was able to transfer to Chicago's esteemed not Western University. Rod Hope to stay home in Illinois for good when he first moved back though. Rod didn't even know ward. He voted in. Chicago is divided into fifty wards each represented on the city council by its own official. These aldermen are similar to city council members but are more numerous and cover smaller districts each acts with pseudo mural power. They're often known for doing favors for constituents this once boring and complicated system now appeal to Rod. He started getting seriously interested in Chicago politics. His interest began as many things. In the world of political scandals do with Alexander Hamilton. Rod was infatuated with the ideals of the controversial founding father. He even memorized large portions of the federalist papers. Rod opted to major in history and enjoyed debating. His classmates always representing a conservative federalist point of view by the time he graduated in nineteen seventy nine. Rod had a plan to join politics just like his beloved Hamilton but first he wanted to become a lawyer. Northwestern and University of Chicago's law schools both rejected him as he did about as well on his L. Sets as he had on the act's instead he packed his bags for Pepperdine University in Malibu California a creature of habit rod soon fell back to pulling mediocre grades with all the fun of Malibu distracting him from his classes. He was unfocused. He later joked that he studied so little. He barely knew where the law library was. Unlike in Tampa Rod never really got his act together at Pepperdine. His academic merit wasn't carving a strong path for a future lawyer so in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. He tried out another track towards power. Patronage Rod Blagojevich was friendly with Chicago Alderman Edward Vrdoljak who was also a lawyer. When rod came home for the summer between his second and third years of law school his father got him meeting. Rod Left VRDOLJAK's office with a summer job as a Chicago. Leclerc Rod knew. He hadn't really earned what he was being offered yet. He didn't have time to doubt whether or not he should accept. He was just grateful and took time to express it by returning to the Alderman's office the next day just to say thanks after graduating in one thousand nine hundred eighty three rod spent some time in private practice then applied to be an assistant state's attorney for Cook County. He asked a friend's brother for help in getting in the door. Another favor owed but young rod wasn't thinking about how he might have to pay it back. Asa's in Chicago are pretty much. What assistant district attorneys are elsewhere prosecutors in rods case mostly of boring petty crimes that First Year? Nineteen eighty-six Alderman for DOLE EAC s rod to help one of his allies. Who is up for reelection? It was rods first time ever working on a real campaign. All he had to do was canvas. A neighborhood andropov flyers. Rod had a great time talking to voters. It didn't even dim his shine when the candidate lost. If anything rod was inspired to build connections and attend fundraisers one of the people he met was a powerful Alderman Dick Melle Mel a self made millionaire and kingmaker Chicago. Politics was best known for sabotaging. The city's first Black Mayor Harold Washington by blocking funding for WHO's infrastructure plan. One night in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight thirty one year old Rod Blagojevich attended his first event at Mel's house you wouldn't know. He was an aspiring politician though since he spent the entire evening. Talking to the Alderman's twenty three year old daughter Patti attractive will read and recently single. Patty Mel was tied to one of the most powerful political dynasties on the Chicago City Council. She was rods dream woman within a few weeks. They were dating after a few months. They were going steady. Go incidentally so was rods career by the end of the year. Rod was working part time as a staffer for her dad and being paid out of position. That's an Alderman's way of saying he's not officially on payroll but we cobbled together. Some money for a job for him namely rod salary came from four different government bank accounts. Dick Mel didn't mind taking care of his daughters new boyfriend. He even hoped stick around. Did He ever on August Twenty Fifth Nineteen Ninety Rod and Patty Remarried Alderman? Mel was thrilled. And not just on his daughter's behalf see mel did have a son but he just wasn't cut out for politics in Rod Blagojevich. Dick Mel saw political air. He had always wanted so with the wedding in the rear view. Alderman Mel got busy launching his son in laws political career in nineteen ninety two about a redistricting created an open spot in the state legislature conveniently located in Alderman Malls thirty third ward on the northwest side. A seven turn. Incumbent wanted the seat but mel thought thirty five year old rod should have it. Alderman male warned his son in law that the election would be tough but if he beats such a strong incumbent on his first try rod would be making an entrance into politics. That people would notice her. Mel's advice. Rod campaigned hard as a reform candidate. He met practically everyone in the district and used his sterling memory to recall what they cared about. The Chicago Tribune gave him. Its endorsement an important nod of approval in Chicago on Election Day. Rod won in a landslide with a four thousand vote margin among seventeen thousand votes cast. Rod called his mother that night and told her about his win. The elderly. Mrs Blagojevich had just two requests. Promise meal always be honest and promise me you won't take bribes of course Illinois's newest state legislator agreed to both. He had no idea how soon he'd break his word as his burgeoning career leapt forward. That's up next now back to the story on March Seventeenth Nineteen ninety-two rookie politician. Rod Blagojevich was elected to the Illinois. State legislature beatings seven term incumbent. Myron coolest thirty five year old Nagoya Vich ran as a reformer pledging to clean up corruption. But there's always a wink and a nod to that kind of platform and Chicago. Everyone in the city hates corruption.
