"Know how close you remain to the bucks and how excited you are for what they're doing here. How would you describe Derek? What Tom Brady has meant to that franchise this year. Again. You can't you can't really stated in words. You just look at the actions. I look at the journey of this team this past year where You in times of success. They've been able to handle it and manage it well, but more or less when they struggle. In years past. You know those struggles, you know, led to a team that Mr playoffs Because he did not have that present of a Tom Brady around to keep things going well when they struggled late this year, I just believed his presence there and I know for a fact, if influence on getting them out of a band third quarter of this season to get them on a roll the finish the season, you know, with a four game winning streak. And really getting some momentum into the playoffs, so his his influence and his handprint eyes all over this team and again the dividends of fate, all for The book got to push it all The ships in this act is also even to bring him here, so he's definitely meant a lot to this franchise. Now there's no question there's paid off. He at this point has accounted for 25%. Of all the postseason wins in the franchise is history. And just the one year is 12 of the eight playoff games at the Buccaneers have one. Let's actually talk about this push to the big game, which is brought to you by auto zone getting his own with AutoZone. We were breaking down some some tape of the first meeting between these two teams. The Bucks and the Packers, which came in week six. It was a dominating win for Tampa and Aaron Rodgers threw two interceptions. And we really were saying that the hero of that game was Todd Bowles, the defense of coordinator for the Buccaneers, who clearly seemed to fool and confuse Rogers, which is not something you would assume happens much with a veteran quarterback like that. So my question to you is What do you see? Is the game plan defensively this week, and do you think they can fool and confuse Rogers again? O'Grady. Uh, I'm pulling back. Move on you. I'm not going to give away the bucking their secrets, man. You got a lot of people in Wisconsin. That's whisky s 00. I would just say this. In terms of the first game, the books were able to really take away a lot of green base running days. And that fourth them to throw the ball every down. So again, the MO mentum of playing at home and they're making an offense so much one dimensional. The bus will be able to give it that to their advantage when it came to their defense of Steve, where there was a pressure package, as you referred to whether it was disguised package or the gold matchup. They were able to eliminate the big place. Of the downfield passing and play action games for the Packers at that time, so that was a really big teeth, and they take advantage of opportunities that Aaron Gable You know how to pick. Pick what that's down again. You mentioned another intercepting that they caught the ball that it was a turnover. It wasn't a past break up. So some of the similar things will have to go into this game. When Mr Rogers gives you an opportunity to make a play against him. You have to do it. Well, they keeping him in the pocket. Not allowing him to extend plays with his legs and on and if he goes up competitive balls You have a defender. You've got to come up with the football and making eternal and as I will always say, and this is no secret green base lending game led by Mr Jones. They have to take that away to have something that Yeah, There's so many different things there. The one pack. I agree. The great Derrick Brooks is with me on ESPN radio first off the intercept Rogers twice in a five minute span. That's two of only five interceptions Rogers has thrown in 18 games. This year, so it's incredible what they were able to do to him there and then yes, the turnover battle has been everything Brady and his career 18 and oh, in the postseason when his team wins the turnover battle, So that does feel like everything. Let me ask you this. Rogers is so good and this is such an incredible challenge for the Tampa Bay defense you played on one of the great defense is of all time. Which quarterback gave you the hardest time. Oh, off question. That's tough questions. Uh, I would say from a defensive, you know, standpoint and playing in in NFC and early years You know, far, you know, man, he was self we played in the same division. You know, at that side, a Green bay with a team that we were definitely trying to kids. Farm in the early years. Gave us from problems are there was always fun. You know the play against the Rams offense, led by Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk, and you know their assets and serve the receiving coy. It was always a good matchup played him. Because that match Well, you know, with athleticism on defense, I would say you know Philadelphia. Donovan McNabb was stuff against himself. They knocked us out of the play, okay? Yeah, yeah, you know, three years, So it was self Theo. Uh, you know, get over that. Fill your heart that once we did we, obviously, you know, one Super Bowl black, You know, at that time, you know the great quarterbacks doing my era. Tom played pain. We didn't get a chance to play those guys. They were in the in the FC but always say, you know, turning a quarterback and I will start with breath because We were in the same division. It was always fun to, you know, play against us, Kurt and Marshall in that Ram's off this great job, Brooks with me and one final question for you and I So appreciate the time. I just need to understand how you put up with it. You you, It is my belief Played golf with Booger McFarland practically every day and as one who has played a lot of golf with booger, I just wonder how you manage that. You have managed to Greenlee is I continue to be a few shots better than him. Every round. You know, Booger play speed Gulf. You can't let it You don't get get in front of you, but I try to limit my conversation with him on the golf course. He definitely would try to talk you out of out of your game that someone's listening to the boogers conversation. They would thank you, too. Andy CAPP, knowing that he's a 30 Andy CAPP, but he would definitely talking gave up. But we play we play so but Gulf I become You know, in view to the verbal warfare that he gives on the golf course. Next time you want to give you the business, Derek the next time into giving the business to ask him what happened to him on the 15th green at bay on the day he and I played together and I will tell you that What happened was he punted a ball off the green down a hill 70 yards off the green. He actually putted the ball 70 yards away from the green. The 50 will be what he ended up with a toile. Yeah. Hey, part of it. And as soon as he hit it, the caddy and I both said, Oh, and he said, What do you mean, when I said, Well, what do you see? What's about to happen? And the next thing you knew that he had a different club in his hands and he was 72. I couldn't even see him anymore. He was so far away anyway, I have to run Terry Brooks. It is a pleasure. Thank you. Enjoy the weekend. Good luck to your team this weekend and I respected keeping it close to the vest. I like it. All right. Thank you very much for you to take their man Must he says not only your TV show, but your radio show is Well, thank you so much, My friend. I appreciate it. We'll see again soon. Maybe we'll see you as the Buccaneers around their way to the Super Bowl. That's Derrick Brooks, who was a great guy and Burger McFarland, who was the best guy in the world and not nearly as good. A golfer as he thinks he is. All right, coming up in exactly 30 seconds. You need to go nowhere. Because in exactly 30 seconds today's green list is the five best quarterbacks never to win a Super Bowl. Look at Brandon putting down his phone. He's ready to go. He's waiting to guess where the list is going to be because with the retirement of Philip Rivers yesterday got us thinking. We're the five best quarterbacks never to win the Super Bowl. I will give them to you in order right After this word From.

"And the home stretch on the odds. Couple presented by prop swap It's Mike North and Carmen to Falcone. At that time in the show that we talked to one of our favorites. He has been red hot over the last month or so, six weeks. He did it again last weekend. He is our guy from Hawthorne Race course. One of the best handicappers in the country. You follow him on Twitter at Hawthorne. Jim, it is Jimmy. What's up, Jimmy Guys, a sloppy weekend for racing here in Hawthorne, but that doesn't stop the show. So things were going allright here a lot of horses in the entry box and they're really provides a lot of value. But Got another two months of racing to go and we're looking forward to it and the fields have been full. I mean, that's the key, right, Jim. Coalfields provide value, and that's the key. I mean, even if you get a favor, we've seen favorites that of one and still pay $10 to win. And that's really what you want. You want a lot of parity and horse racing. Just like you see in the NFL. You want a lot of horses and with an opportunity to win, and that's what we're getting. You get 10 11 12 Horsfield. Five or six horses in with a chance and because of that, it really is providing a lot of value, and it's put a lot of money into players pockets. You know, back in the forties and fifties, when horse racing boxing baseball were the absolute kings of the off the line, there was no doubt about it. I think you had handed campers that absolutely knew what they were doing. Jimmy and I know that horse racing in the and lately has had classes teaching people how to get how much of the public they come out. I know you have your dead fast horse players. But how much of the public that are the occasional people like myself? I know how to do it. But how much really No out of Andy CAPP Warren, You know what it hadn't missed for the amount I really know howto handicapped horses, and that's kind of where someone in my position really kind of comes to the forefront to try to educate them and really, to try to provide information when I'm talking about a race. That can give that person who's that hardcore handicapper information that they need but still making it. So those who are just learning how to bet horses kind of have an idea what I'm talking about going into a race and you do see a mix of their nowadays, which is a good thing, and eventually for us going into the fall Me stuff like the Triple Crown just happening kind of created some buzz an interest in horse racing again. Those fans saying, Hey, we want to check out races at the track. We have something going on. We have somewhere where you're connection. Aly, go and see the entertainment unlike a baseball game, a football game, hockey or basketball, So that's one. The things you have started to see. Some of those people come back to the racetrack, and it really is a nice thing. You go to one of the TVs to watch and download from Hawthorne at that's the best thing to because you're just watching wager from home, so Make all of Jimmy's picks as we do on the club Hawthorne app. So what do we like for this weekend? Jim? All right. Three different racetracks this weekend. We're starting a Belmont Park on Saturday. Race Number nine. This is the era Coy steak. We're looking at the number nine timely tradition. But the horse across the board six. The one in the morning line steps up in class. This horse wanted Belmont earlier in the year on his one for six on the year, but a really good value there. Then go to the West Coast. Santa Anita. Race number eight Look at the one horse Jo Jo error, but the source to win in place 5 to 2 in the morning line, But you have a heavy favorite who's going to take a lot of action. Wesley Ward trains. This horse should be really good in the turf Sprint and then come to Hawthorne Race number 69 horse and he's loose, but the horse across the board to kind of a light bulb angle. This horse just won in its last start. Maybe it's figuring things out now, maybe able to win right back and should be a pretty good value as well. So the ninth at Belmont tomorrow, the nine horse the ninth race of the nine horse across the board at Santa Anita, the eighth race the one horse to win in place. And then at Hawthorne tomorrow night, the sixth race than nine horse again across the board, right? Thats right, boys. Let's make some money. Sounds great love of Jimmy will talk to you soon. All right. Take it easy. Next week, there is Jim Miller at Hawthorne. Jim. We calm the delicate, gentle He has been phenomenal. Like family D sources. I'm concerned. What's what's You know, Swiss skydiver doing lately? That's our horse. That's our gods threw the other one. L mutual. What's that one? A mutual ma? What was that one neutral. I forget how steep it was his family. We're like family Now. I keep hearing horses now that we're familiar with, because that Jimmy and well, where were you now? I could see where people go. I follow this one horse. How? What You notice When Jimmy make some of those pics? He stays with some of the same order he gave out like, three months ago. Once they win for you, you know you fall in love with those horses. You bet him over and over again when they went over, you find one that wins the Triple Crown races for you. Just, you know, people in the last race for you Call me Then you will go to the glue factory, pal. It's exactly right. Unbelievable Couple other NFL games before we give you our best bets, Mike and are going to do that before we're out of here. We kind of touched on the chief's a little bit in their loss a couple weeks ago, But then they bounce back on Monday night Having to play one of those doubleheaders on Monday night looked impressive. I mean, they ran the ball all over the Buffalo bills. You know, they go on the road there lane, another huge number inside the division they were doing this earlier in the year when they were laying about eight at the Chargers charges almost won that game they took The took my homes in the chief's the overtime. What do think about the Broncos playing a little bit better getting about 9.5 points at home? You know, like this one graded. Where? Where you should take Denver getting to 9.5. I stay away from this. I would. I mean, you don't know what Mahomes you know Mahomes is doing okay. But you know what he shows that he can lose Denver. We haven't been..

"Hey Welcome to invention. My name is Robert Lamp and I'm Joe McCormack and you might know us from our other podcast stuff to blow your mind but today you have apparently wandered into our hall of cursed invention that wait. It's not all Kirsten mention. You know so. Some things are perfectly fine inventions Some of them make our lives better but you know or they taunt you with goods that you could almost reach Robert. Did you when you were a kid? Did you ever play that game? I suppose it was a game but I took it very seriously where you really thought you could reach up through the bottom of the vending machine and get that food item from the bottom row I do not remember trying too hard at it because it ultimately seemed like there were there were too many risks. Both both physical and social. Because either you are going to get your arm caught in their jammed or pinched opened. There are going to be some sort of trap failsafe. Or you're just going to be seeing doing it and you're going to get in trouble for trying to steal from a candy machine. It always seemed like a kind of Humiliating homer Simpson. Esque way to die would be you die accidentally pulling the vending machine over on top of you while you're trying to reach up and grab some Andy CAPP hot fries from the bottom row. Exactly and you know these are two key points. Though that we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA come back to again and again in this episode in this episode. We are talking about the Vending Machine Aka. The robot cashier. That's right so time was back in the old days yield and days when you had to either buy goods directly from a human salesperson. Sounds horrible or you simply had to leave payment after you took off with it and as far as that payment goes prior to the invention of money which would be have to be another episode for us. You'd have to leave goods there in. You know in exchange some sort of barter system. That sounds difficult. If you can't workout with the exchange rate for what you bring is all right in either case though there's human interaction or there's some there's some human judgment on what is fair or there's just some sort of an honor system in place or human there just to prevent you from stealing right but then what about a machine that sells goods for you. Something that has become so ubiquitous. Now it's fascinating to think back on where the shift occurs. We get into this vending machine territory just wear does such a machine come from. At what point do we crossover from machines? That are ultimately little more than honor boxes. You know honor system situations where you're just trusted to leave your money and take exactly what you paid for and then where do we get into true mechanical sellers right? The honor box system is what you often find in. Say A church where they'll be selling prayer candles or something like that and there's an offering box and it's like please put a dollar end. Just take all the candles right. And in and yeah. The the honor system is enforced by the sacred nature of the space in your obligations there. There's a supernatural security guard in that right. Yeah you don't have to worry about somebody trying to reach their hand in there. Just make off with all the candles for the most part. But you really do have to worry about that. If say you want to sell minor food items snack items and say you're running a concession stand at the poolside or something like that and you need to run off to put some money in the parking meter. Whatever whatever the people meaning those concession stands had to do when they put up a sign that said be right back so so kids are coming they want to buy an ice cream bar snickers or something like that and the goods are just right there. Do you trust the children to leave. Money on the counter as they should and take things and take only what they've actually paid for. Wouldn't it be better if you had a machine that enforced the exchange of currency for for payout of items and didn't allow kids to sneak an extra hot fries here and there now of course we're talking about honor boxes here one of the important things to notice that you still find plenty of honor boxes out on the street in the form of Of newspaper on her boxes. Oh the newspaper vending machine. Yes yeah you put your money in and if you wanted yes you could take all the newspapers that would be cumbersome. Yes how often somebody want more than one newspaper. Though they're like there's an article about them in it right but but obviously you could not do the same with say You Know Cola machine chocolate machine now. I wonder something that we can become back to a bit. Because I wonder how the psychology of transaction and the psychology of consumer behavior changes when you're dealing with a machine versus with the person because I think back to my childhood self who I would reach my arm in the machine and see if I could grab a whatever a brisk t out of the drink machine. Grab something out of the snack machine. I don't think I was ever able to do anything like that but I would try and I would never do that at even even if the the concession stand attendant was away and I could have just reached out and stolen. Whatever I wanted I would never have done that at a real concession stand that was not controlled by machine operated. Mechanisms has a different scenario entirely and then at the same time it's it's ultimately not. It's still somebody's property is for sale. They're still individuals involved in this scenario. And you are Defrauding them well. It felt completely legitimate to try to reach into the machine and steal from it in a way that it wouldn't from a place that had human even if they weren't there right right because you would have been exploiting a design flaw right. Yeah I guess so that. Maybe that makes it okay. It doesn't to be clear but but let's go back in time a bit. Let's let's look for the roots of the vending machine so I was reading through an excellent book on the Social History of the vending machine titled Vending Machines on American social history by carry. See Grave and points out that the you know. The first American vending machines popped up in the eighteen eighties but the earliest mention of what we can reasonably describe as a vending machine is attributed to The Greek inventor hero or heroine the Alexandrian engineer of the first century CE. Okay now hero has tons of inventions attributed to him right and then the book that the the stems from is is loaded with descriptions of strange devices so This sixty two e book pneumatic has descriptions and illustrations of various curios fountains temple gadgets doors that open due to the you know some sort of movement of steam or firewater with injuries like a drinking horn in which a peculiarly form. Siphon is fixed and water driven from the mouth of a wine skin in the hands of Seder by means of compressed air so a lot of Curios Marvel's toys essentially so it sounds like he designed one of those early on like peeing fountains right exactly and it would would would would have been technological wonders then and are still kind of technological wonders today but Where does the vending machine come in? Well he describes and illustrates a coin operated device for for selling sacred water in Egyptian temples. Okay so the idea. Is it it. Maybe you don't believe in the honor box system like we discussed for buying candles in a church or something. Maybe think well people are just going to be stealing sacred water if we don't make them pay for it. So you need a machine to enforce that transaction. Well I don't know how much of it was because I think there is still an honest. I mean it's a temple right but maybe there's a sense of let's make it a little wondrous you know because they'll number of these devices that like the doors open you know as if by sacred magic but of course it's supposedly caused by some sort of heat apparatus but but here's how this device would work okay. You'd insert a five drachma coin. The coin would tip balance inside which would lift a plug and allow a small amount of water to escape. And then pour into your chalice or copper. What have you and then? Once the coin makes its way into the collection chamber the balance returns in the plug. Goes BACK INTO PLACE? Okay so it sounds like a very simple design. You've got like a lever. And when the weight of the coin hits one side of the lever like a seesaw lifts the Plug Up. And it's kind of like a toilet. Actually it is very much like a modern toilet Especially when you when you see the illustration it basically functions like a coin operated flush. Nice I should also point out that Say He Chagrin also discusses this in his American scientist Article Water Fountains with special effects from two thousand five. But it's still certainly benefited from an honor. System of sorts of the gods are watching. So you're not going to try and cheat the machine with some sort of a coin on a string or some some smooth stones that are just happened to be shaped like five drachma coin ride because this was not a refined system of judging what had been put into the slot it was basically anything that could push the lever down right now in terms of like who actually invented this and whether it was actually bill. This is a little more difficult to to really figure out. It's certainly possible. That hero himself was indeed the inventor of the device. But we don't know for sure it might have been to. Cbs reputed inventor of water clocks from two seventy BC who also would have resided in Alexandria to CBS water. Clocks are worth looking up by the way I looking at some video of how these things worked in. There is some ingenious design because it's difficult to design a consistent water clock that just keeps working the same over time Because you know you're you're reservoir tanks drain down so he created these really smart designs with like extra reservoir tanks that would pour into your main reservoir tank and then siphoned manage. How high the water level was is really clever. Now we also don't know if what hero describes here was ever actually built or just a you know a novel design and this is the case with a lot of old technological gadgets described in books and then on top of this some mentions of this vending machine include embellishments that are difficult to nail down simply don't fit the time line but it does give us an idea of of what some of the earliest if not the an actual vending machine consisted of then at least the earliest ideas of what a vending machine could be right. The general principle of automating transaction without just relying on the honor system on the buyer's part right and it's kind of a gradual evolution to get to that point however as a cigarette points out. It's going to be a long time. After after this temple device. Describe A HERO. Before we actually get any real advancements in vending machine technology. He does point out there. There's some for instance there's an unaccredited nineteen sixty New York Times article that claims among other things that there was a coin operated pencil selling machine in ten seventy six China. You know is really holding out for that medieval European vending machine that You put it in. A coin dispenses a piece of the true cross. Well I mean there were certainly automatons throughout European history and I guess with the vending machine especially the early days of the vending machine. You're looking for a very particular type of Automaton that does something or rather not just does something You know but actually gives some sort of good in exchange either leaks out some sort of valuable liquid more gives you a candy bar in exchange for a coin because we have all matter of amazing. Tomasson of showing up in European history and everything from pooping ducks to praying monks. But to what extent you have things that are actually facilitating exchange of of money for goods. All right.

I suppose that Is is worthwhile but I very big horse and I don't know as they say the the slow ones don't seem to get hurt As often anyway and I. There's no point in really speculating as to what might have gone wrong but there's anything that the You just you have to as you and I in fact exchange and on Monday you just you had racist to run and horses to take care of you know seconds after this occurred Thing I imagine. Warriors charge in particular his performance and the huge the huge Group from ten strike being there at the lift. Everybody's spirits for sure. I mean you know when obviously after stay focused and You know continue on and And we have a great crew in place you know. Said it was a tough day for everyone but We're able to get through the day and and You know want to get through the race card and it was. It was a good day at the races. Let's put it that way and talk about warriors charge and the the alert. There were a couple of alerts last week for at least for people. Listening to this show. Was Marcus Hirsch. Observing her at observing him at Fairgrounds and saying just how terrific. It looked like he was coming into the race and then we had marshal Graham during the Z. At Marshall was very excited although he couldn't be there There was a lot of indications that that this was going to be the start of what could be a very good Andy CAPP season for warriors charge. Yeah for sure. And that's the goal and you know when he came back last year from college last fall from college surgery he obviously never know how they're gonNA come back and obviously something like that you know we don't deal with that a lot And he he came back and I mean just showed. The brilliance showed in the spring last year maybe even more developed and gotten faster so You would need to facing horses that were moving forward older horses for the first time and he.

You know, any of those players Joe Perry number five plays in every single mom contest. He's he snuck in yesterday. I think I think he he was like two dollars from the line with no bullets left and sweat it out to make. And then I saw yesterday downstairs at night, and he was optimistic is that who's thirty two bucks because everything's group. So tight amazing journey that he's about thirty dollars away from really being in contention, say must've hit something pretty good. He's got it. What what else can you? Tell us about him. Is he a jersey guy? He is he lives in jersey. He very interesting. He's he's always in contention. He's he's a great player, but he much prefers the live season contests 'cause he goes down to the paddock and looks at them interest. So he's kind of in the mix in the simul simulcast series ones. But he much prefers to be there look at the horses and go by that. I know he said he had he he had. I think his brother he said was that fair grounds on the first day of the Kosovo Friday who who they maybe it runs in the family they like to look at horses. So he. Someone down there looking as he gave them a good price. They're incredibly nice guy. Great Andy CAPP, always right there and not surprised at all to see him in the top ten very cool.

"Virginia by chef. Sacramento's news, traffic and weather. News radio. Welcome back to the big show Bob grass, which in for the sheriff, John McGuinness. It's friday. February the eighth the three fifty six on a cloudy, overcast, but otherwise glorious day in Sacramento and looking out the window somebody just released a whole batch of balloons. This is really kind of a cute little seen over Arden fair mall whole bunch of balloons or now, they're not parachutists. They're going the other way over Arden fair mall. Very cool. Anyway, I I gotta tell you one thing about the Washington Post the before we move on here. I got to tell you about the Washington Post. Now, I never read the Washington Post on a regular basis up until about a month ago. I got an offer. You know, you get these offers, right? Yeah. Okay. I got an offer. Well, this offer was a year of the Washington Post delivered to my ipad. My my electronic edition of the Washington Post a year for fifty bucks. So buckle week. I thought what the hell I'll get this. And I can quit anytime if I don't like it, you know, I I just tell him a note Belleville give me my money back and that'll be that. So I said, well, what the heck I'm gonna I'm gonna blow the fifty bucks and see if I enjoy it. And so I start reading the Washington Post couple three weeks ago. And I I find it's pretty good. This is before all Jeff Bezos bazo stuff blew up, and but and I'm enjoying that too. But what I find as I'm scrolling down the the the index deal on the side there on the left side. I'm scrolling down. I'm going through all their political stuff. Their opinions their food coverage everything else that they have in the Washington Post, and I get to the comics, and that's at the very bottom. And I find the comics, and I stopped reading. The comics back when I stopped subscribing to the Sacramento bee back in in two thousand fifteen I I left I moved away from Sacramento. I quit the Bill was getting too expensive. Anyway, it costs like a thousand bucks now to get the Sacramento bee delivered to your house a thousand bucks a year. Which? Well, that's a whole nother story a thousand bucks, they are doing everything they can to kill that newspaper. I'm telling you anyway. So I get the Washington Post for fifty bucks. I go down to the comics. And what do I find? I find the two greatest comics in the world comics that I never even believed anybody would print anymore. I'm one was marked trail and Mark trail to me is the second greatest comic that still publish. It was in the b. They changed the artist and it's not quite the same. But Mark trail used to be just loaded with these little secret messages hidden little tricks and whatnot that the artists were put in there. But Mark trail he's an outdoor writer. He goes out and he gets involved in crimes and he solved crimes. Always catches the bad guy. Bad guys, by the way, marked trail. You can always tell them because they have a moustache they have of sideburns and their bald. Those are always bad guys anybody with a moustache sideburns or bald stay away from them. The other comic the Washington Post has and this one I I didn't even believe existed anymore. Andy capp. That's right. Andy CAPP is still published in in the Washington Post. Now, Andy CAPP is is you may remember a British comic in English in English comic drawn by a guy. Name red Smyth is long gone, but he somebody took over after he died anyway, Andy CAPP, he's he's drunk all the time. He's in the pub all the time. He's fighting all the time. He he's he's committing domestic violence all the time. I mean, he's he's a reprobate. He's. Horrible. He's a terrible guy. But somehow they make it funny and Andy CAPP, and I I've always enjoyed it. But I thought he pretty well got banned got outlawed got run out of the country. I didn't think any newspaper would publish handicap anymore, but they still do in the Washington Post. And I realized in the last few weeks reading it that he and flow his wife. They don't longer fight. They actually go to a a marriage counselor. When they when they feel like fighting, they they go to marriage counseling, which is a real improvement. It's a step up for Andy CAPP. He does fight on the soccer pitch when he gets on. When he when he plays soccer. He inevitably gets tossed off because he is he's fighting with somebody. You're taking a cheap shot at somebody. And he is when he's in the pob, which is in the pub three or four days a week at a seven it's good three or four four or five. Sometimes he's in the pub drinking his beer and drunk obnoxious by you can tell because his nose red. Anyway, Andy CAPP still going strong in the Washington Post. So so God bless the Washington Post if they're doing anything right there, there comics are second to none now on that note. I want to talk a little bit about sac city unified, Sacramento city unified school district, which is of course, the district that well, I sent my kids they're they're no longer in school. They getting finished finishing up with college. The youngest one is the oldest one finished a year ago almost two years ago now anyway, sac city unified, what a mess. This place has become a and this, you know, we we count on on. I mean, if you can't count on your schools who are you going to count on right? Well, sexy unified as as you may know, you couldn't be in worse shape than these guys. Are you couldn't be more mismanaged? The they've got a shortfall in their budget of between thirty and fifty three million dollars. I I've seen both numbers. I'm not sure which is correct. Some people say they're shortfall is thirty million. Other people say it's fifty three million. Now there deficit either way, it's it's horrible. It's terrible for them to be running school district with with that kind of a deficit. They they they're not going to go on strike. Like, they they almost went on strike back in November seventeen the teachers threatened to go on strike, and then they got eleven percent raise. And that that settled that they pay their superintendent three hundred and six thousand dollars a year, which is. Is almost doubled to what Gavin Newsom what the governor gets governor gets about one hundred ninety thousand. And these people that can't run the school district. So what's going to happen? Here is they're going to have to get a loan. From the state because they they've got to pay their bills, and they can't pay their bills with this with this thirty to fifty three million dollar deficit. They can't pay their Bill. So they're going to have to go to the state and get alone. And when that happens when you take a loan from the state and your school district, a bad thing happens. A real bad thing happens in that is the county office of education, which in this case is run by a guy named Dave Gordon. I it was a buddy of mine actually, I've known day for many many years and have the greatest respect for him. He's the he's the superintendent of schools for the county not for sexy to unified. But for the county, Dave Gordon will take over sexy to unify he will he will take over. He will take he will push the board aside. He'll push the superintendent aside he'll take over the district and start to run the district with the goal of repaying the loan that they have to take out in order to to to bridge that gap that thirty to fifty three million dollar gap that they have to pay their bills. Now, a lot of people say that's going to be terrible for the the kids. That's going to be terrible for for local control. That's going to be terrible for for the teachers for the staff. I'm an argue that I think it's the best thing that could possibly happen. And unfortunately, this puts when when this happens and it hasn't happened yet. But I think it's gonna happen here. Pretty quickly. When it does happen. It's going to put Sacramento city schools in the same boat as some of the worst school districts in the state, Oakland, you a unit Oakland unified is is in this boat. Still they're still trying to dig their way out of out of out of alone and control from the state and the county in Alameda. So and there's a whole bunch of them that have have gone through this up the most derelict most incompetent school districts in the state, and there's a thousand school districts in the state so about fifty six big ones, you know, fifty six big ones with more than twenty thousand kids. But but still there's a number of them that have gone through this, and it's humiliating. It's embarrassing. It is it is not a pleasant thing. But I'm telling you what the way the school board is operated sexy unified with the way the superintendent. They've had a batch of superintendents run through that place. None of whom seemed to be able to to to earn their three hundred and six thousand dollars a year in any sort of legitimate way, they've handed these these raises to their teachers that they can't pay for their looking the they'll come to the taxpayer at some point and say help us, and of course, the tax payer can only help so much. And in this case when they come to the taxpayer for the loan the tax payers want to get their money back, and they're gonna get their money back and who's going to suffer. Well, alternately. It will always be the children the students of Saxony unified. But shame on shame on the superintendent. Shame on the board. Shame on the last superintendent. I mean, this this has been this didn't just start in the last couple of years. This thing has been going on. This problem has been building for years now probably a good fifteen. Sac city unified. And all I can say is I'm well two things. Number one. I'm so glad that my kids who had terrific experiences. It's actually unified. I'm so glad they're out of there. Now, I'm so glad that they are on their way and and into public universities and away from the sac city unified. I feel terribly sorry for the folks who have children particularly young children who are looking at a lot of years at sexy to unified. I feel real sorry for you. And I hope that they somehow pull it together. But the second thing is here that I think Dave, Gordon and the folks at the county and the state level are the are the real solution right now. And when in the evidently take control of the school district, hopefully, they will put some sense and some some proper business controls and some spending controls onto this onto this terrific. History. I mean, this is an unprecedented. This is a storied school district. They I mean, they're they're terrific people who've come through the school district sac city unified. I mean, our attorney general graduated McClatchy high school are the chief Justice of the state supreme court graduate McClatchy high school, the former United States Justice Kennedy, McClatchy high school. I mean, we've we've produced a number of of tremendous folks in in the school district, and I it at our schools here, but they really can't produce much when they are being operated the way they're being run right now. So let's hope that that when they can't get their act together. Which again, I don't think they're going to hear anytime soon that the that the state and the county step in and do what's right? And that's the prediction. Let me give out the phone number here for our final segment you want to join the conversation. It is a free for all Friday, at least that's what it's turned into nine. One six nine to one fifteen thirty to join the conversation. One eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty. I'm are egress which filling in for the sheriff. It's newsradio. Oh, okay. Extremists.

"How it would be received? And and when we were active or one of the top faith podcasts were on hiatus right now to begin of March where we'll start season two again. But I'm so grateful it I think there's a real hunger and thirst especially considering the climate that we're in. We're so divided so device it when we can't pull up a chair and talk to somebody that we don't agree with and that's with this. I mean, I talked to I talked to a Muslim I talked to an atheist people that I don't necessarily see eye to eye with but everybody is entitled to their own faith story. And I think it's impor-. To sit down and listen to people in this moment and respect where they're coming from regardless of whether or not it's where you're coming from. If you do get kneecapped Andy CAPP with people whether it's over an audio or whether it's in person, and you really do get inside their life. It is so much more difficult to be uncivil and to be prejudiced. Totally it breaks it down on Ben Shapiro's podcast last week that aired on Sunday. And he and I were talking about that. And and as long form interview is an hour long. But it was the same thing we're talking about the lack of civility. And you know, what is what solves that? And it is you know being together. If you don't have any friends that aren't like you. You know, you're pretty narrow minded by definition by definition. And so you need some friends or at least some good acquaintances. Maybe they're not your closest friends. But I mean, my my crew that I run with I'm gonna share values with and those kinds of things, but but one ring out or two rings out some people that are different color, a different sex than me different religion than me. And if you can't talk about it because it's not allowed to discuss it. Then it makes it worse. And I think that's what happened has happened. When we've scrubbed everything clean religion. It's loud. It's not allowed people to be authentic. But if you think about the more profound conversations that you've had with people it always goes back to some form of God it does. And it's usually somebody that you don't agree with that just learning to sit down, and listen and have respectful dissent. But you know, it breaks it down like you said if you. Get to know somebody put the keyboard, courage aside. But if you take the time to get to know somebody just come to the table. Well, it's just interesting intellectually to learn from someone that's different right? And you have to be ready to explain the hope that is within you. And how do you do that? You do that by informing yourself and listening to other people in really digging into why it is you believe what it is. You believe so mentioned a couple of the people. But let's go back over some of them that you interviewed for season one. And what are some of the things that you went? Wow. I didn't see that coming. I learned I interviewed Raza ostlund who is an author and religious scholar. I learned a ton about Islam, and I graduated from Christian college with the bible minor. And my studied other religions I learned a ton about Islam just by sitting down and talking with him. You know, Luke, Bryan has gone through more tragedy than I think any of us will ever experience in this life losing a brother losing a sister, losing brother-in-law and just seen how his faith. He wouldn't be able to to. To press forward. If it weren't for his faith talking to Tim Tibo about identity. I don't think anybody has failed. So spectacularly you could say as Tim Tibo, you know, he he chucks up the NFL to a failure. But it's these big conversations were having about identity. What if your identity is all and football and baseball and your radio show? What happens when all of that is taken away from you. So we're able to have these really profound conversations and everybody story is so different. It's been so different. And I just I know that for me personally listening to other people's recount their stories and their journeys. It's only deepened my personal faith. It really has Luke Bryan Hillary, Scott, Ben Shapiro. Tim. Tebow Kellyanne Conway and Robert Roberts. I actually know all of them Sherri shepherd, at least, I don't know Kellyanne that like. That was a controversial..

"Area. Big savers guy. I've known offices a friend of you all the programs. He kind of actually did justify an explain why it's happening. Right. Well, she thought that it was his his reasoning was he thinks teams are coming out with such such a sense of urgency in the first period to get a goal right away and ticket to lead in an operating from there. So then it would be a different kind of ball game. That was but they basically that's what he was trying to say that teams come out here on fire. Here we go. Let's get a goal right now. That's fifteen shots, and if can the first period, hopefully, break breakthrough so that. Does make sense. Other people have kind of guest as to why it's happening there. Speculating like it could be the the, you know, the the the equipment for the goalies not as big as it used to be fresh legs right away compared to a little bit tired late second period in the third period as well. So that was his I guess that's kind of make sense with what he was trying to say. Well, look, I it feeds to my theory. And I wrote a column on it. But it really needs to be like a a thesis paper for college students like why we are dumb enough to bet the full game. I mean, if you think about it every sport hockey, the goal is pulled NFL or college prevent defenses. All that garbage time basketball. We know about the free throws and the garbage time. So it really is silly that you know, a game is played for ninety percent. That's how we handicap ninety percent of the game in the last ten percent is bizarre or whatever it is last five percent. So it does see random things can happen. You kind of isolate the handicap in a away, and it's different Andy CAPP like we talked about fresh legs all that. And when teams get a lead. Especially in hockey that doesn't have a ton of scoring maybe basketball. There is a strategy change at least in the maybe third period. But maybe even the second I don't know enough about hockey in that regard. No share. I mean that that part absolutely make sense to me. So we're crazy for betting full gains. We should be doing stuff like this. And like I like the Spurs tonight first quarter. I don't love it. But it's a play more than like the game bet. I think they're like got embarrassed in the last game. I think they're good bounceback spot. I just think there's there's ways to do it. Like, I twenty points. I used to bed. I attend point. Do those props if you like, for example, another handicap around Vegas does radio Dave Kokin gave out pit on Monday night. Florida state coming off that excruciating loss to Duke on Saturday had to travel pit was a good spot. He gave out pit plus five. And I was asking him. I go why not just give out pit first-half? If you wanna let if it's all about like, the flat spot, then why don't we isolate it even more? So where I perceived handicap is is more of an advantage. Sure. And I mean. You. I mean that stuff is going to be available everywhere too. By the way, I quarters. I have all that kind of stuff. So there's no some people actually said they can't find the first periods in hockey, which is a little weird. But actually, some Vegas books. Don't even offer it..
