"School called peak or something. I tried out for the von kings. I tried out for the Toronto marlies, all those guys, and then get calls back. I tried going a shot at a couple times and make those teams. And RA mentioned, I went to LA and that was kind of like my last resort. I called teams in Colorado. I looked at prep schools. Gunnery and victory Honda in Detroit, honey bake, all those teams and just I never really got to call back, so I ended up just going to LA and things just kind of fell into place to be honest. Did that put you? I was just trying to ask to that, put a chip on your shoulder, all that rejection. Like, or are you just maybe a little bit? For me, for whatever reason, I just had it in my head that it was going to work out. I don't know what it was. I just knew that I'd get an opportunity at some point. I just have to make the most of it. And I think like a month into me being in LA, something went weird and Omaha where they had two starting goalies and they had the trade one and they called me and they're like, hey, do you want to finish the year here? Like you're going to be our backup, but if you want to come up, you can. I was like, I was 15 at the time. I was like, yeah, let's go. Let's do it. And things just kind of rolled from there. I was going to ask because to get all that rejection and then to move all right, go to LA, like I wondered, not too long after that, you're making the national development program. So maybe it was Omaha, maybe it was, it was even LA at the beginning before he went there, but there must have been a jump and there must have been a moment. You're like, holy shit, I'm like, I'm feeling like I'm really improving at a rapid pace. Is that the case? Yeah. So I think I tried out for because I didn't play both years at the development team. I got cut my first year. I was kind of in the mix. I didn't get invited to 40 men camp or any of those goalie cans were there making picks, but I heard my name kind of around and you know, I didn't get drafted into the dog. I didn't get drafted in the USHL. So I was like, holy man, I guess I'll just, you know, go to LA and the Omaha thing really just fell in my lap. I was so shocked, you know? I didn't get drafted. I didn't get protected. I was just like, hey, I'll play here and then I'll go to a couple camps, you know, next summer and see what happens. And you know that year in Omaha, that was when I kind of like, you know, really got my name out there and, you know, I played pretty well. You know, I didn't play a ton. I had Alex Lyon was my goalie partner. He's a stud at Yale. He's playing in the American League. Now, I think in Chicago this year, but that was the year where it was like, this is my chance. I gotta take advantage of this and, you know, I went from there to the U.S. team and then, you know, I accelerated my senior year high school and I went into BC your early. So everything kind of happened really quick once that first call came. Is it true that your parents did not want you going to the USHL at first? My mom was a little worried about it. My dad was, you know, my dad was a guy that obviously my mom was super in the mix with the hockey stuff, but she was more trying to develop me as a person and my dad was the hockey development side of things I guess you could say. So I had to make a decision like the day they called so I called my mom right away. I was like, hey, just let you know like I'm moving to Omaha tomorrow. And she was like, what the fuck do you mean? No, you're not. I'm going to become a farmer. Come to corn out there. So she was just like, we need to talk about this later. I was like, there is no later. I'm packing up. I'm on the next flight and the in the morning. So I was like, you can come out and visit me and a couple of weeks and see what it's all about. But that's where I'm gonna be tomorrow. So at that time, were you already 6 four? Had you grown a younger age? And then you kind of grew into your body or was there a late growth spurt? No, I was 6 four. I felt like when I was ten, I was always kind of long and lanky. And I was kind of the reason I wasn't too sharp as a kid. You know, growing up. I was just real awkward in the night. You know, it didn't move well. I had a little bit of the compete, the natural battle, like that kind of stuff, but there's no goalie coaching really into San Diego. You know, I would anytime I went to a tournament somewhere and my dad would kind of look up what the best goalie coach in that city was now get some bully coaching in between games or, you know, just to kind of see what it was like. I mean, there's not a ton of stuff going on in San Diego back when I was growing up. So it was kind of tougher to find the right path in that sense. You get any coaches that had like these wacky devices and shit kind of like golf balls. And of course, you know, my dad was super invested into it. You know, he's doing whatever he could to get me to the next step and he would take home everything that any goalie called again could barely try to escape in some cities and you know he's got all these strings attached to my helmet. He's like using like the white puck, the tin cup, the mini paws. Yeah. And then I get home and like right in the middle, like my dad ordered it online. I'm fucking sitting at home in a living room with my bucket on, like that's strange going like, you know, just doing wacky stuff just trying to figure it out, you know? That didn't actually drop out of high school and rolling like an independent study program so you can get more ice time. Yeah, that was, let's talk, man. I'll be honest. It was my freshman year of high school. I was trying to make the development team. And I think I played on, I was the backup on our 16 triple-A team that year in San Diego. And we only practiced Tuesday, Thursdays, and then we play on the weekend, but, you know, I was playing maybe once a weekend and getting two practices, and so I was like, that's not enough if I'm gonna try and make the U.S. team. So I dropped out of public school and I went to an independent study program up by the rink. And so I would go to school in the morning from like 8 to ten, I'd get on the public bus, go to the rink and skate for a couple hours with like the beer league guys, you know, like the stick times or whatever, get back on the bus and go back to school and then go back on the bus and go back to the rink for practice. So it was just like, you know, especially a young freshman in high school. I was kind of right in those adolescent years and I spent a lot of days just kind of by myself on the bus or at the rank and just trying to get some extra ice time and then I went to the tryout and got cut, so all right, I didn't even get called for the tryouts..

"So a couple of things I was a Russ fan, I'm not a hater, but I don't see the value of having them on the court, no natural pace, no ability to create or shoot in poor IQ. Another comment about Westbrook said, Westbrook attempted wide open threes when he could have drove the ball attacked the rim or find the open shooter. His decision is so poor, what do you think? I thought the kings did a really nice job walling off the paint tonight. Every time Russell Westbrook went to drive, he had one, if not two people, just standing right in his way. Alex Lyon even exaggerated it and basically invited Russell Westbrook. He played ten feet off of him and just prevented him from getting to the rim and this was kind of left unsure of what to do. So yeah, and messes with you. When you play basketball, and someone gives you, if someone bites you with that much space, no matter how bad of a shooter you are, you are very, very, very tempted. And it's hard to resist that urge unless you're a big band that absolutely never shoots. Can I tell you a funny joke? I took the on Russell Westbrook's second half points. The line was at 11. And I was going to text you and say, I'm nervous because this would not be surprising if rust just decides to ball hog and shoot until he gets to like 12 points. Do you want to guess how many of the second half points scored? Zero. Yeah, I was going to say it's got to be like zero. He's only three for 14 on the night. Wow. Yeah, no, it was zero. And yeah, that's just so disappointing that I wasn't and I was hoping to be wrong. Because if he scores more than 11, I'm gonna assume the Lakers are doing not bad. But no. So sorry, that was a quick aside. And you didn't need to do it. So one one. Does that make you feel better? You won. You won your bet. No. Now we're all upset. Oh my gosh. It's not worth it. At what cost? It's not worth say, Jordan said, will they ever learn? Rush down the stretch equals don't let him shoot. Don't give him the ball period. He's cold, AF all night. When is enough enough? Did you notice the kings in the arena when they announced Russell Westbrook? The king's arena played cold as ice. Yes. And then he was. It's funny. Jared shocker said, if we don't win the chip this season, I'm much rather sea Austin Reeves, take half of his minutes to expedite his progress. He's so good. So if you make the decision, okay, we're not going to win this year. Just start throwing all the minutes you can in Austin Reeves, right?.
Smith's late goal lifts Hurricanes past Blues
"Brendan Smith's first goal of the season was the game winner with two fifty seven left as the hurricanes nip the blues three to two anytime you score your first with a franchise it's really exciting you you remember almost every play every who made the pass and I remember when my first one with the red wings and then with the Rangers in here it's just it's really it's really thrilling especially with the G. Doug Brady chance Sebastian I'll also scored for the hurricanes who avoided a second straight loss after holding a third period lead chase scored seventy five seconds into the game and our whole added a power play goal in the second Andrei Svechnikov for Tony deangelo both had two assists Alex Lyon had twenty seven saves in his Carolina debut probably Chevy chin Vladimir Tarasenko scored for the blues on the ferry

"If you go back and you look at the comments about Dwight Howard joining the Lakers when he did a couple of years ago, not even a couple of years ago a year and a half ago. When Dwight Howard joined the Lakers. A lot of the same concerns were held by pretty much everybody, right? About Dwight Howard as they are right now about Deandre Jordan in fact, you added character concerns with Dwight Howard. Now, I do think Dwight and the way it worked out so perfectly is more of an outlier. I don't think that's the norm. I don't think that's something that's going to happen every single time, but I'm saying, if we're looking at this from the well, it's going to happen. Let's try to find the silver lining. What is the glasses half full approach to this? That's it. That you're getting that center tandem again that you had a couple years ago. And this off season has been very much about putting the band back together, hasn't it? It's been about bringing back former Lakers. It's been about bringing back rondo bringing back Dwight Howard. The guys who won a championship with you. That's been a theme. And so you're bringing that familiar skill set back with Deandre Jordan. Was it the right move? Again, I still would prefer to go find a wing player. That was my priority. But from the Lakers side, that's the positive that they look at. Angel Torres from YouTube, but the superset super chat says truck driver watching right now. Thanks for helping keeping me up. You're welcome, but I hope you're not watching this while you're driving. Or at least just listen to the audio part of it because if you're on YouTube, that means you are, you are indeed watching the video here. All right, somebody said should have picked up Damien Jones. No, Damian Jones, he is under contract with the kings. So there was a $1.9 million team option on Damien Jones contract. And the assumption was the kings were going to decline that. But they surprised everybody and they picked it up. We thought they were declining it because they already had so many other centers. I mean, Marvin Bagley is probably more of a center than anything else right now. And then you've got Alex Lyon they had an interest in Thompson. They added other players too. So.

"It for three weeks so okay I have some. I have some issues Tortuga tavern which is the quick service like the full menu. Quick Service option in adventure land tortula tavern used to be like kind of like a tax will not Texas. It was Kinda like a Mexican type flavor like these killer burritos and stuff and now it's like people bills. No no no I know. I know that that's their. That's their now. But I mean back in the day Tortuga Tavern East have burritos and shit anymore. Yeah and Evans. Really a like a skip over. Just grab a couple of water from place. Now he's got is hotdogs in Turkey legs in they also have a jerk smoke briskets sandwich and Yelich looks like he's not like a. There's not even like a plant based option for me. Come on guys bums me out anyways to be really good like I remember back in the day when Nick and I used to go like when I got married we. They had like Burritos. They had like Nachos lady not anymore but apparently you can get that to pick US bill now. Yes we'll talk about that when we get there needed to frontier. Um Although tour two does has a deceitfully large seating area. Yeah it's gotTA lottery on like it. Looks like it's just what you see like a walk up window is chairs the left but it goes up into the back look old patio area which is pretty So lots of seating there especially don't care there's some and whatnot but but it's nice to actually have seating so yeah a lot of the entrees to have like a Caribbean flair to them so like there's a jerk smoked brisket sandwich you can add jerk. Smoke briskets here hotdog. There's a Lotta like Caribbean. So I see where they're going with. That sounds pretty good. Yeah I began to like the pepper. Jack Pretzel Like I love. I love pretzels. So let's get to the. Ps Two resistance in my opinion. In my opinion this is the best. Sit Down Restaurant in magic kingdom. I have not been there so from you phenomenal. It is general aviation companies with limited skipper canteen and its newer It's been open. Maybe for like a couple years now. And it's sit down it's hard to get into. It is it's fun but it's hard to get into and like they have like it's Kinda reminds me a little bit about the one. Is that Mama Melrose where they give you? Shit like the waiters. Give you shit. They're like oh well. They like corny jokes and stuff. They'd be bit. Yeah like an Hollywood studios. There's a restaurant that's like that whereas if he's prime cafe one of them but this is similar. The waiters and waitresses have like a kind of script. And they make like silly joke. Silly puns about like a skipper. So it's basically the jungle cruise in a restaurant but the food's really good. Yes and the food is kind of a mix of like it kind of reminds me of like a PF changs type of food but also has lake some Indian mixed in it. It's it's actually you know what it kind of like. Really good mixture of everything. That's the junkers like all the different jungles African and Latin. Yeah there you go so and and one thing I will tell you guys and this is one thing that at Disney and I learned Wish I would have known beforehand. The portions are huge. Really wish you would have known that beforehand because we did. I forget where we were going afterwards. It was just so much. 'cause the food's fantastic click the Ma- if you look at the menu which I highly encourage you to do. We're going to pick what we're going to pick here but like the APP circuit. We couldn't we couldn't say notice. I think he got like two appetizers two huge meals. What a bad choice was great. It was the food is really good. But Lord Thou so much food and then you can get cocktails. And they're fun because it's so it's like Super Fund So we have many pulled out like we always do and we're GONNA pretend. Read the restaurant right now and we're going to choose just like we would if we were having some lunch or dinner together. Do you WanNa do lunch or do you WanNa do dinner for lunch. Personally I love lunch all right so appetizers Turner what I've had. Oh I've had the Shuai which are dumplings right there pork. I've had already they're phenomenal? They're blend of pork. Shrimp a May and spices in the gives the skin and their steam just like dumplings. They're fantastic. I wouldn't get it now just because I'm vegetarian now. But they're real good highly Now either that or the Streaky noodle Salad would that looks to within their within their Idols mushrooms green mango cucumbers. Toss with sweet chili sauce. They had an on here. That the last time we went there They had a cheese bread. And they don't have that anymore here but if I were to order something. That's vegetarian I would get the false family lawful stella lawful Chickpeas garlic onions lemon juice herbs and housemaid Etta Mommy Hamas. Okay we see you today real nice so I think he said before. Yeah entrees China. I think when when I did go there it I had the perkins tie noodles delicious. It's very good it's very spicy. Ps like if you don't like spicy rural spicy like it was kind of like almost too spicy for me. And I like spicy food. I would've told them to like calm down on that a little bit. But it's very very good anything. Get it as Tofu so like you could. So it's sharing case. Probably get the taste like chicken because it is jasmine rice. Julie's and seasonal vegetables as you sound I I think that's what brand got and I think I taste. It was very very good. It was very childish. It's fucking chicken strays Haniya. I would I would be this kind of weirds me out. The curried vegetable crew stew looks very good. But I don't know how I feel about a pineapple. Tofu never had yeah. I would probably still stick with the tiny it'll since you can get it with Tofu and there's no meat in it so I would probably get that but there's also like steak there's pork sustainable fish. And there's also a seafood stew which looks pretty It's very much like a Thai curry. So it's like that coconut Kinda Curry. Just can't go wrong with. I mean curry last night. But I'm like the Japanese curry but you're all good in so many different ways like I love Spicy Tiger And I really love. Japanese courageous like really thick and hardy with tomatoes. And a so good. If you're Indian curry God they're also good on the desserts are pretty famous too so the Congolese which is very famous Is Chocolate cake with caramelized bananas Cashew Caramel Ice Cream top? So it's which is cool so it's plant based ice cream for those of us who themselves but theory so yes yeah. Nick doesn't like it either. I would probably do the Pantani's Congo lime delight yet. Alex Lyon panic Mango sorbet rush fruit in Brazil. Brazil nut cookie. I wasn't if that's what they gave us. When we were there it was brands birthday. She was wearing her gear and they brought us a desert and last episode on asset. They love their pin. We love the fence here. I wonder if they have yet so they have the specialty cocktails here. They have whereas that. So they have housemaid's Sangria and they have multiple different kinds of Sangria which is fun This has just as choice of Reddaway blended but they have like other flavors It's just not on this particular menu so I highly recommend it and there's also you know a jungle navigation coach Shanti which is Blue Moon specifically made for For skipper canteen. I taste but I think a little repulsed giving. I'm some people really like like I don't like bloom because the orange I think it's gross. You gotTa really like that fruity type of beer or citrusy beer to be into that. I think there's there's a shame that they make in an epcot that Matt really likes And when we get there I'll go more into it but it's like a spray mixed with a beer which I thought was weird but it tastes. Okay didn't taste bad and and quite honestly I would probably if I went back here again. The salary was too sweet for me. I would probably they have my favorite beer that I always get in Disney for some reason. I was getting animal kingdom and it's the Tampa Bay brewing old elephant. Ip a I get it all the time but they also have a hung loose spiced excursion Ale. Which is an amber ale? Brewed exist exclusively for Disneyworld. So I'd probably go with one of those because the singer is not free from any describe one of these little wines here. Would they got the the wine selection here guys is fire? Fire literally cannot go wrong. Yeah it's often different places in Chile Argentina South Africa. Yeah Yeah I mean guys. In my opinion beer is nothing compared to this place I am. It's Kinda loud because it's in like this big area like if you've ever been in to play is a liberty tree tavern someone. I'm thinking of. Yeah I think it's it's like but but like multiplied by like Gillian. It's huge on which is amazing. Because it's always packed. And it's very very loud That's the only Downer and that's I think that's just true of any magic kingdom restaurant just because it's true any really large. Sit Down Restaurant. Let's be honest like it's echoey like beer. Gases are echoing in that pisses me off. So it's Kinda loud but honestly I don't care because food is that good. I think stick hit up speaking. I'M GONNA fix my intone here soon. Guys microphone is still being butthole. So I'm using my headset but a new one soon so I'll be back to sounding beautiful. Yeah Yeah you could. You could so before we go. We wanted to go over some of the shopping opportunities seek it say in eventually and quite honestly. I've not like super thrilled by them. There were e R. It's like a bizarre and that's on purpose but which is fine but like I've never will. Yeah I do enjoy the Pirates bizarre which is the the store that you walk into 'cause Disney Dizzy. GotTa have you buy shit once you authorize And so it's kind of the same idea with pirates bazaars to raise. You're getting off of pirates of Caribbean. You Walk into the store and it's it's a lot of really fun Pirate gear. I think it's really cute. I think it's I think that one's actually really well done. And it's a much bigger source. Probably I think the biggest store you can also you can. Also if you have a annual pass get a discount on.
