We do not know yet. Yeah, the conference championship games are about to start, so we're going to get started. So we're going to get off and go hunker down on our couch with our chips and our dip, our candy. And we're going to sit there and watch the game. Meanwhile, it's like 80°. It is a beautiful day. California. It's so nice. It's so wonderful. It's like the world is freezing and we've got 80° weather way too high. I was thinking, man, I could go for a swim. No, we're gonna watch football. Yep, exactly. So that's just the way it's gonna go. I saw a graph of Cincinnati Bengal fans in the country and it was like a map kind of brown. One of those maps. Like you'd see on USA Today or something that shows the things. You know, yellow shows one thing, blue shows. Yeah, yeah, right. Well, this was just yellow and red. Okay. Yellow being Cincinnati Bengals, fans of people rooting for them. And red was Kansas City and there was it was the whole United States, including Alaska, no one. Okay, so this map, yeah. And it was all yellow except for one tiny dot right over the city of cancel right about can see Missouri the whole thing. Yeah. So I'm sure melodies not gonna be happy here. Well, everybody loves an underdog, right? For the record, I don't even know if I should say this, 'cause I'm obviously gonna lose both bats. I took Cincinnati plus the 7. Yes, you did, right? Yeah. And then the rams minus three and a half. Okay, so this is what Mike has done and again, when you're listening to this, you will know how he did. And I still think Kansas City is going to win the game. But I think Cincinnati might keep it close. And I think the rams are gonna blow San Francisco away. Okay. So that's gonna be your Super Bowl Kansas City in the rams. And it's gonna be a nail biter. Okay. Nail biter Super Bowl Super Bowl. I'm predicting that.

"Then full on as fast as I can move up to the table grab the Dyson throne. Okay. Every time. All right. How often do you think they'll go off the table? Maybe 50% of the time. 60 maybe. Yeah, well, you know what, it's the way I roll. Okay. But when they do stay in the table, they're hitting the back wall in the back wall. Now they may hit the back wall and fly out of the table. Yeah. Ready to hit people in the face. Right. You know, situations like this. You know, you only have so much information. And if we've been there, maybe we'd have a different opinion, but when things like this do happen. Yeah, my thing is always keep the customers happy. Yeah, I agree. Especially if there's no role worked out for the people, then we're going with that. If a role would have worked out then we're going with that. What are you losing? And you know, it's craps on the come out rule, so it's not that big of a deal. It's like he said, right? It's not like a 7 out or something, right? It's not like a hard way that they call it. People had tons of money on a hard 8 and then they called the heart 8 back. I mean, that's snug. All right, let's hear from David again. Hey, gentlemen, this is David from California again. Just calling in with my second trip report. I'm driven back from Long Beach right now after 5 day cruise on the carnival radiance. I'm having another baby girl in a few weeks here, so I know go anywhere for a while, probably a few months before I could have another trip. So my goal was kind of to lose so much money that I don't want to go back to gambling for a little while, and I would say I was very successful at that. It went quite well. In terms of losing a lot of money. Anyways, I had a blast, the ship is at about 30% capacity as like 7 or 800 people on it or something, so you know there's more crew members than there are passengers. No lines for everything. It was very nice. The dealers have definitely gotten the hang of things in the last month or so. This one, not as busy in the casino, obviously because not as many people, but it's fun on these trips because craps players are just crapps players. So for the whole week, you know, you see the same people over and over again every night at the table. And it's kind of fun. You get to see everybody's different roles and we had one who rolls it like feed the chickens, the classic role. There's one that was the setter, another one that changed the set every single time. I personally just pick up and throw them like I'm mad at them. It's fun seeing everybody's different personalities of dice throwing. Of course, all the results ended up the same anyways, which in this case was generally .7 out. But we did manage to hit the all tall small once. Somebody else rolled it for me. I rolled this small once twice actually once with a little caramel on it for you guys. So watch for that coming your way soon. And that's about it for the trip. I appreciate the show guys. You do a wonderful job, love listening to it every two weeks. Can't wait for it to come out. You have a great rest of your week and happy gambling. Yeah, and thanks, David. That Carmen donation. Very nice. Yeah, thanks for hitting that for us. And congratulations on the new baby. Maybe. Yeah. So yeah, it sounds like at least on this cruise ship, the crews were getting a little better. And he had a good time, even though he said he lost. Which was his intent. He probably liked that the ship was only partially full. Yeah, it's probably nice. It's nice. There's a lot more room and you know the crap table probably wasn't as crowded. You know, just overall in the cruise you're getting a lot more attention from the staff. Notice that so on a cruise ship, employees do more than one job. Right. Yeah, yeah. You know, your server at dinnertime might also be the bartender at the pool during the day. They all have multiple jobs. You see them all over the ship. So I wonder about the dealers. So if you're a dealer on a cruise ship, I don't want anyone has any knowledge of this, but do they, you know, at night they're dealing craps and then the next morning they're handing out towels at the pool or something. Yeah, I bet they have bet there's the dealers there are no exception to and I wonder if they get paid differently because you know dealing craps or something is kind of a talent and he tells that the pool is not so much of a talent. I bet it is, but if anybody knows yeah, let us know if they noticed that just specifically the dealers doing other tasks on the show. I know that one of my patients used to work at the old globe here in San Diego. And he's like a set construction. Okay. So he did all the sets and stuff made all the sets. And then he got a job with Disney and he started the first few years on Disney cruise ships doing set construction and stuff for the shows. And he told me I asked him about this. He did not have to do anything else. Oh, okay. He just did. He worked like 8 to 5 doing stuff for the shows for that night and then he was done. And the rest of the time, I said, what'd you do? Oh, well I enjoy the ship. I get to do stuff. So there must be some people on a ship who don't have four different cruise lines have different hearings. And I'm sure he was paid more than like another cruise employee to see at some point. That's a good point. Because usually with the entertainment, like if you've got a singer or a comedian, he's probably not handing out tells later. No, oh, I know. They just do their show. Yeah, yeah. And then they enjoy the ship like everyone else. You know, they're laying out by the pool or whatever. So I just always thought, you know, I wonder what dealers because they are kind of specialized. Yeah, that's true. But you can't just take some guy and oh deal crap. I mean, you're right, but there are a lot of specialized jobs on a cruise ship, right? Okay, there are some things that virtually anybody can do. But yeah, there's a lot of specialized. I mean, the captain probably is, you know, later at night yeah we got a block toilet and that's right. That's right. He's dealing blackjack. 6 to 5. It's 6 to 5 on my ship. Well anyway, I'm glad he had pun in having another child is good. A girl. I've traumatized mine so much over the years. My two year old girl. Yeah, they're gonna eat therapy. They already need her. Hey, you mentioned biloxi. So what's your probability of going to biloxi here? It's about the same, maybe 80% now. 80%. 80%. But I will say this. If I do go to biloxi and I'm going to guarantee this right now, every hour that I'm on a gambling table, not just, you know, eating or something. Okay. Every hour, at least, once during the hour, I'm gonna yell out snow quality. I don't know if you got that exactly. Okay, yeah, the casino up and Washington. Yeah, I think he said snow quality. All right. I'll hold you to that. Yeah, wait, you know, if you yell that out at a crowded craps table as loud as you can, people are not gonna know what the hell. They all go silent they stare at you. What the hell did he say? And they're all gonna come up with something different. And they're gonna give you some space. I think that's the other thing they're gonna do..

"Right, next call. Gentlemen, this is Adam from Denver, Colorado calling again. I was just in Vegas in December and actually was just there again that this past weekend thought I'd tell you about it. Buddy and I actually golfers and we decided to take a day trip or day and half trip up to saint George before our trip and golf couple rounds up there, which is really beautiful. I mean we drove down back to Vegas on Saturday afternoon. This is the divisional NFL weekend and oh my goodness what an unbelievable divisional weekend in the NFL and even better that we were in Vegas. It was just so much fun to watch the games of various points. One of them we watched the ending from across table a couple of others from bars. Everybody was having a great time, Vegas was packed. This is great. Happy report. We're still low for all or have your report. We still had pretty good luck finding $15 tables up and down the strip. Not every casino had them, but most seem to at least have one or two. So gambling for the first part of the trip was kind of a sort of a drip drip drip slow down, but then at the very last night we were there. We decided to go off drippings over to Gold Coast and oh my goodness, we had probably the best table we had ever been on. We couldn't lose. We were pressing our vets, which we don't normally do. We were both tipping both the dealers and then other shooters because everybody was just having a great time. My buddy ended up about 1100 up and I ended up about $500 on this table which for us, again, low rollers, but a great way to end the trip because it actually brought us both back about even for the trip. So anyway, I had a great time. I think we might make the divisional NFL weekend a ritual now for us. Boy, it was a fun time and the games are amazing. So anyway, thanks for all you guys, do you? Thanks. Yeah, maybe the best weekend of playoff football ever. I mean, those four games. You know, the three were all decided by, I guess it was field goal. Last second. And then, I mean, that buffalo Kansas City may be one of the greatest games most times the second greatest game all the time. You like the Chargers dolphins. In the four or 80 something no no is earlier than that. That was quite a game too. It's an amazing game. Almost got fired because of that game. Oh, right? You were in the back room watching it or it was to be, no, I was supposed to be at work at 5 and went to like, you know, overtime an overtime. Yeah, I got there about an hour late. Everybody knew where he was. They were not gonna fire you, okay? No, they weren't looking at that restaurant. They were valued employee. But it was one of those things where everyone knew what I was doing. You know, it's always nice when you're in Vegas and there's something going on. Something special. Yeah. Like, you know, NFL playoffs or March Madness or something. It just adds to the whole atmosphere. Yeah. And you notice the difference, I mean, at least I do, when you go when there's nothing going on, you know, it's that time of the year where it's just you're going to gamble. It's not quite as exciting. No, you feel that energy. Yeah, you feel that energy. And it's nice to talk to diller's always have an opinion. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Stuff about, you know, who they like. They probably have action, right? They all pretty sure most of them do. All right, next up is Andrew. Hi there. This is the Andrew from Seattle. I just wanted to call in about an experience that I had, playing dice at my local casino here, so call me casino. So in Washington state, we have a permanent box assigned to each table. I know in various sometimes one floor will be trying to play box for multiple tables, but in Washington state, they're still doing one box per table. So we were playing. We have this guy shooting. He was having a pretty decent role, but he was having some real trouble hit in the back wall. He's one of these superstitious rollers who steps the dice in a perfect way, gets crouched down in a perfect way and launches them high up into the air and the first dice had a tendency to just stick in the come area on the opposite side of the table. And the other dice would usually hit the back wall, just fine. But it's that first ice that everyone's having an issue with and he had been warned three or four roles in a row that, hey, you got to hit the back wall. And we're going to no roll you if you don't hit the back wall. So he world wants and it we made the point. And on the come out roll, the roll was aces and the stick finally got frustrated and called no roll, but the box overruled him. They said, the box has the final say and I kind of tried to raise a little bit of a fuss as everyone lost their pass line bets. But they said the box had the final say. So everyone lost on the path line. It's not a huge deal because nobody had a huge amount of money on the past line, but I just thought once someone makes a ruling, I kind of feel like that should stay. So I don't know, let me know what you guys think about that situation. They finally said, okay, we're going to let you roll for this role because you're having a decent role, but once you're done with this role, you're not going to be rolling again. So that's how they ultimately resolve it. I thought it was a pretty strange ruling. I don't know what you guys think. I'll talk to you guys later. Thank you for yeah, I don't know. You know, is it a free role for the casino if it had been a 7 on the come out role would the boxman have agreed that it was in no role? You know, the stick have called no role, right? This was the stick trying to do a favor. It was he really getting frustrated or he was trying to do a favor for the table. I think I think they should go with whatever the stick man says. Well, and in the boxman can take the stick man on his break and say, hey, you know, keep your mouth shut roll or no roll unless something, you know, like it goes off the table or something. Well, yeah. You're on the table if there's a problem I'll make that call. It depends on what the policy is at the casino. But you would think that would already be in place. Is that can the stick call know? Or can the boxman call no rule? Now, that can't be across the board because I remember one time Mike where the dice were it looked like they were going to end up in the wood. One of the dice was going to end up in the wood and the stick man said, no role prematurely because the die came back into the tub and it was a roll. And I don't know, might have been a 7 out or something. And everybody was saying, oh, he called no role, right? He called when obviously there was no reason to be was a role. So that's a conflict too. Yeah, I don't know. It's just hard for customers to especially in his example where, you know, the guy calls no role, and it's a two and you're thinking, oh great, I don't lose my line bet. And then it's no, no, that's a role. If it's me, if I'm the boxman, I just say, no, he said no role. Now, if he said no role, and 7 came up and everyone would have won their lying bet and I'm the boxman, I would have said, oh yeah, no, no, it's a role. It's a role pay him. Well, then it just keeps customers. I agree with you you're saying the customer is getting a free roll in that case, but it does keep it keeps everyone happy. Who knows what the dynamic was between this stick and this box, right? Because there may be some other who knows, right? That's another problem. Plus, the guy rolling, we're having an issue with him on this right. I think the next time we go to a casino, maybe in biloxi. Okay. I'm going to set the dice in front of me. Then I'm going to take about three steps back from the table and.

"Doctor Edward, thanks. Yeah, good. Well, it's nice. You can find table games in Oklahoma where you don't have to pay the ante. Go back to previous episodes if you want. There was a series of episodes where we talked about, you know how you have to pay an Annie on table games. But there are some casinos that basically pay the anti for you or how you want to look at it. So that's good to know at least you can find some. Yeah, and he tripled his money. Josh tripled his money. That's great. You go to a place with 200 bucks and you come out with 6. You tripled your money, what do you do with the winnings? Well, you pocketed away, maybe you put it in your savings, and then you go and play with another $200 the next time. Doctor Mike? Well, that's not bad. I was thinking more of, you know, put your $200 back. Okay. You get your $450 that he made profit. Save 200 of that for your next trip. All right. All right. Okay. So you got 250 bucks, then you use that to buy yourself something nice. Oh, all right. I don't know, like a lifetime supply of mustard. Sure. You know bad. Right. You'll never have to buy mustard. Yeah, whatever it is you need that you think will improve your life. What about salt salt, salt with a lifetime could just buy a lifetime supply of salt, even paper products, you know, whatever. But you know, you do something fun with that other 250 bucks. Now, that is fun. You know, yeah, you might want to buy something like you need a new iPod or something or whatever it is. An iPod. Yeah. Oh my God. I'm stuck in town 1921. I'm stuck in 2005. How about earbuds then? All right. You know, seriously, though, you do something that you have something tangible that you made you feel happy. Okay, so my mustard, but that's right. So in other words, don't necessarily put it all back into your gambling fun. Right. By like a washer, if maybe you need a washer for the family, or maybe a TV. Right. Something that makes you happy. Yeah. Don't be a good stand. And I've made this mistake where I bought like, you know, a lifetime supply of hot dogs. Yeah, that's not good. It's not gonna do that. Even if you freeze something it's a waste experience here. You know, you learn these things. Why don't we move on to the next call? All right. Hi, Mark and Mike, this is David from California, calling in with the couple quick trip reports. I went on the carnival radiance out of Long Beach on December 17th. It's an older ship but freshly remodeled day through $200 million at it or something, renamed it. So technically it's their newest ship right now. Super nice, super clean everywhere. It was great. I was on a casino camp cruise, so that was fun and free. My wife is like 7 and a half months pregnant at the time. So she couldn't come with me, but it took my 11 year old son, Charlie, instead, and he had a great time. It's perfect. In the casino, you could stand at the crap table, the bar or the bathroom door, and you could see the other two from any point, and they're all within a stone's throw. So to me it's just the perfect trifecta. I drink a lot and I be a lot. So it was excellent. The cruise super nice, really appreciative of the tips, of course. All the players, most of them were relatively novice craps players. And so the game, especially with being a $5 game, went pretty slowly. A lot of dollar profits on everything and then that combined with the dealers being a little new made for some confusion, took a long time to get any rules done. One thing there was this guy at the end who was just come on come on come on, let's go, let's go move it, passing the dice. Let's move the game. The whole time, just nonstop. And then the worst part was, at the end, they'd be ready to finally. They'd be shoving the dice down and then this guy would throw out two bucks. High low, and then they pull the dice back, they book his high low, and then everybody else around and say, oh, what's a high low? Those sounds fun. And it goes around the whole thing again. They start throwing them, then he makes another prop. It's like, well, you know, I mean, if you're the guy yelling about moving the game along, maybe have your bets ready? I don't know, something. Another funny thing was my son played in the arcade a ton and the machines actually locked up on him and locked his car out because he had reached his arcade limit, so I don't know who's on that is something weird. But we haven't done a guest services and they said, well, that's actually run by the casino. So you have to go back up there and talk to them. So I just set up in line at the cage. They stopped doing smoking in the casino on the first day or second day of the cruise because of COVID protocols. So it wasn't smokey or anything, so I just let them stand in line to go talk to somebody at the cashier. And I was playing craps at the time, and I could kind of keep an eye on them. What are the box been there? I said, oh, isn't that your kid over there? I said, yeah, it is. So what's going on? I told them, you know, he needs to get his card unlocked so he can play more in the arcade. So the boxman whistles over and fetches a host and the host goes over and talks to him in line, gives him a carnival hat, sends him on his Perry way, so I thought that was pretty nice and fun. One thing that's kind of a bummer, they don't do hotbeds, so when you have a parlayed hard way, you can't turn it off on the come out and then hop it. So that was kind of a doozy. And then they don't do any piggyback tips. So instead of you know, I like to throw a quarter out and do the hard ways two ways heavy for the dealer on the point or whatever so they get two bucks on the 6 if that's the point. But they don't do any piggybacks so I can't parlay it with mine, so I just had to make it all $6 bets for myself and then once I get the chips split it up later. So that made it kind of a slight nuisance, but not the end of the world at all. Anyways, overall, really great experience. Very fun. The crew is starting to get the hang of it. It looks like and then we'll find out 'cause I'm gonna be back on the same ship January 17th with a few buddies and away we go. Thanks for everything you do for the show. Looking forward to the next episode. See ya. All right, we're gonna hear back from David about his second one. Yeah. I wonder where they went. Oh, yeah, I don't know. He didn't say who cares. He's a cruise ship he's playing at the casino. If he's in the casino, it really doesn't matter. Although when you get close to a port, they close the casino. Oh, yeah. Which sucks. I mean, I should stay open. What difference does it make? You're on water. A pretty exciting, you know, for an 11 year old and standing at the cage there, right? Waiting to get to more money and you know, you can't really do that. It would be great if you could just take your 11 year old a real casino. Yeah, just kind of in line for me. Jimmy, I need a cash advance. Just get in line. Tell me when you get to the front and then I'll come over. Young man, where are your parents? I always think that David's son probably just got up there and as he's going through the line thinking, video games, I'm getting a cash advantage. That's right. My dad said to get a $5000 cash advance. Can I see your card? That's right here. Oh man, that story about, come on, keep it moving, keep it moving. And then he's telling that I'm thinking we have seen that. We have to. There are some players who do it deliberately. It's probably a superstitious thing, but they really do wait till the dice are about to be sent. And that's when they think that's when I have to make the bet. Right. It's not necessarily that they're consciously being rude. It's just they're thinking that's when you make those things. That's when it's the most exciting in a movie. That's the dice are being rolled some guy down guys. Yeah. High low. You see the chips and the dice crossing in the air motion. Orissa, horse better, and he thinks that, you know, making his bed late is really the best thing to do, so you don't change the odds. Right. And you know, it's always a risk. He might get shut out. Yeah, you know, get up there. Oh. Gosh, I guess I should have, you know, made the bet 20 minutes ago. Or he's just a Jack White who is just trying to slow the game down because he doesn't have a clue. How about that? That's another option. Yeah, despite what the words coming out of his mouth. That could be oh man, I want a slow game, but I don't want people to know I want to slow you. Come on. Come on. All right, hi low. All.

"bally" Discussed on Gambling Podcast: You Can Bet on That

"Ultimately, though, it's just a name change. Right. It's not like it's going to incorporate the history of horseshoe when it comes to we take any bets and we offer the best odds in town now. It's still gonna be a seizure Zelda property, so. Yeah, I am glad the name's coming back. I don't even think they'll change the motif inside or anything. I doubt it. Yeah, they might. It depends on how much. Yeah, that's a good question. I don't know. The money they want to be right. Is it just going to be the name and everything's going to look the same? You know, they are going to have the World Series of poker next year. Right. And. I'm trying to put 2022 out of my mind. I'm still back in last year. I'm living in the past. Yeah, maybe they'll do something for that. But you remember when it was MGM Grand? Oh yeah, yes. Before they had that bad terrible fire, yeah. We went me three other guys and our friend Margaret. Right. I wasn't with you. You were with us. No, we all worked together. Yeah. And it was kind of a spur of the moment thing. Yeah. Like on a Friday night, like let's go to Vegas tomorrow. That's how most of our trips went back when we were young. They were mostly spur of the moment. We were talking about the four guys and then Margaret said, yeah, I'd like to go because she wanted to see the lion at MGM girl. Oh, okay, yeah. Well, it was summertime. So we okay, we all drove one car we all drove to Vegas and we go to MGM Grand to see the lion and Margaret was so disappointed because it's like a 110°. Yeah. And this poor lions in this cage. Yeah. And it's just laying there. Yeah. You know, and she wanted to see it up and pacing and I like it a good zoo, right? Like at the sandy because you can get real close and see, wow, there's a lot of and it just lay there. I mean, it's impressive. Yeah. That's awful. But it was weird. That was there for quite a few years. They had the lion and then after the fire, they kind of got rid of that. The fire was terrible, of course. And then it was renamed valleys and I told a story on an episode a couple of years back where we actually stayed at ballys. This was what, two, three years ago. And the fire alarm went off. In the middle of the night, not on our floor, but on the floor where my sisters were staying. And so, you know, you're a fire alarm at a location that you already had a massive history. And, you know, they walked down the stairs all the way down to the bottom. Nobody was waiting for them. There was nobody to tell them anything. Oh, it's a false alarm, or oh, it's a test. Again, it didn't happen. We were on a higher floor, it didn't happen. But can you place like that, you're thinking, oh my gosh, here we go again, right? Well, I mean, you know, there's a fire just give up. Just lay in your room and you're up the 48th floor. There's a fire below you. Isn't that you can do? Nothing you can do. Just put the kino on the TV, make a few bets. Hope you hit something. Yeah. Yeah. Opinions offered by doctor Mike did not necessarily reflect that of the you can bet on that brand. Well, I remember that fire and it spread through the casino so fast. Yeah, it started like one of the kitchens in the restaurant and it just went all the way through the casino like in seconds. And it always freaked me out. To this day, I think about it every once I think, oh my God, what would you do? You know, you're just playing a game and then before you even know it, it's on you. It's crazy. Imagine the amount of alcohol in the carpet. It just ignited as the fire went through, right? Because the alcohol, you've got human body fluids, all of them. Every single one. It's a casino after all. You know? And then, you know, Coke on top of that, sticky stuff and things. It's not surprising. So I know we're laughing here, but this was a terrible event. And luckily, it did kind of change the way that hotels looked at fire safety and what they wanted. Because shortly after, you know, at first they were kind of trying to downplay it and became a political thing. And then there was a fire at, I believe it was the Hilton. Yes, right. Las Vegas. That's right. And that one was deliberately set. But you know, after that fire it's like, okay, we need to take some action here. So most things in the world, something bad happens, and then we learn. I mean, humans learn and they change things. Thank God. But it was renamed bally's and then a new MGM Grand was built, you know, up there on the south side of the strip. So. A bigger MGM guy. It's huge. It's too big. I saw somebody on Twitter posted something about what's the worst worst walk from casino to casino in a casino like the worst? Well, I think the joke was, you know, what's the worst walk on this strip? And he would say, you know, oh, just from one end of MGM. Yeah. That is miserable. Or from, you know, the Caesar's cage to your room. Right? That's another bad one. It's a new tower. It's a nice tower. The one that's furthest away from everything. Now you were getting back to that trip that you took with the you were telling me that some of you did was it like one of those parachute it's like you're in a wind tunnel or something. Right. It's just a big fan and you go out there and it blows you up and then it's like you're parachuting or something. Right. You don't really have the feel of a fall. It's just the wind is blowing up. You have the fill of floating. Yeah, okay. Wear some suit that kind of has like it's bigger than you. Yeah. So it looks hilarious when you first put it on. Yeah. And then, you know, when the wind hits it, it spreads out. I think they have some more sophisticated ones. Probably the one back in the whenever this was. Yeah. It was pretty great. Did you do it? No. I did not. Margaret and I watched. Margaret didn't want to do it. And I at the time had had some back issues. You know, I'm like, oh, I don't know. I don't want to fall, but Paul and Greg and bob. The other guy, you know who they are. Yeah. They all did it and it was hilarious. I laughed so hard. Oh my God, especially Paul. That is great. With everything. Paul's does not like being embarrassed. We love it when he's embarrassed. And he had this big suit on his goggles. Oh my God, that's great. That was fun. That was a bunch and it was like a one nighter. We went for one night. We got all that in. We did a lot. I don't even remember how much gambling. Hey, thanks to everyone who's been clicking through our Amazon link. Remember, whenever you're gonna buy something through Amazon, please go to our page first. You can bet on that dot com and click through our Amazon link towards the top of the page. All right, let's move on to our voicemails. First up is Josh. Hey, Mark, doctor Mike. This is Josh from Latin Oklahoma, first time caller, longtime listener. I just wanted to give you a quick trip report. So here in Latin, we have the Apache casino hotel. It's the only casino here in Latin that has a crap stable. One single table with $5 minimum. It was a pretty good day for me because I bought in for $200 and ended up leaving with about 650. Disabled was pretty cool to start off with everybody ended up leaving throughout the night and then I was the last one on the table. And I normally don't tell small and when you know it, first time I ever read it, I ended up hitting it last number was ten a little hard to make, so I put out put out a $5 ten for myself and a dollar for the dealers and about a couple of rolls later ended up hitting it. That was a pretty good night for me. One thing I'd like to mention here in Latin is the fact that they do not have what we call the Oklahoma Annie because their crafts are commissioned free. So the only downside is the fact that the table is open for calling through Thursday through Sunday in the evenings. But it's not that bad. Can't complain too much. Other than that, I'd like to say thanks for running the show and like to maybe come down this way, we can play..

"bally" Discussed on Gambling Podcast: You Can Bet on That

"Hi, everybody. Welcome to you can bet on that a podcast for the recreational gambling. My name is Mark of all and sitting across from me as doctor Mike. Hello. Now, as listeners may know, I've kind of gone on about what a good year I had. Last year's first big year easily my biggest year. And I'll tell you what, if there are any listeners out there who are just thinking, shut up, Mark. Yeah. Okay, you won. Big deal. If there's any? Well, I have good news for those people. My 2022 is off to a horrible, terrible, yeah, you've been witness to some of it. Honestly, January and it's just ending up here. It's going to go down as my worst month. Yeah. I mean, that's how bad it's been. Yeah. Even when you went with your wife and son and stuff. Yeah, just a little terrible. I was due for a loss. Yeah. As they say. Well, let me ask you this. All right. If you have a big loss, you personally are you inclined. I mean, when you get home, do you think to yourself, oh, I need to get back there and recover or do you think to yourself I'm staying away for a while? I never think, oh, I've got to get back there to recover. Okay. I never do that. No. And it's not that I'm going to stay away, but I definitely thought, okay, I had such a good year last year that I was throwing money around. Bets and everything. I'm just going to cut back on that. I'm going to go back to kind of the way how I bet. Previously to that. So much more conservative. Yeah. Okay. And on a follow-up question, when you have big wins when you come home, do you think to yourself, oh, I'm on a hot streak. I can't wait to get back, or do you think, oh gosh, maybe I shouldn't go for a while because, you know, I don't want to lose my hot street. It's definitely not that. I'm looking to get back. Now, it's not thinking I'm not thinking, oh, I've got to get back. I've got to get back and I'm not thinking I'm on a hot streak. Okay. No, it's more like, boy, I sure enjoy this. I'm winning. I'd like to continue to play. So what I'm drawing from this, what are you doing? You enjoy winning and not so much losing. Yeah, I guess in a nutshell, I think you've wondered what most people think. I mean, oh, sure. There's different. It depends on. I mean, honestly, I go both ways. If I have a big loss, I come home and I think, oh God, I'm gonna get them next time and I'm ready to go back. And if I have a big win, I think, to myself, oh, gosh, I gotta take advantage of my, you know, hot streak while I'm on it and go back. So either way I'm going back. That's you for sure. That's me for sure. I think everybody has a different way. But I think you know what you're saying. I'm not crazy about losing. I like winning, that's the end of our podcast. I don't think we need to do any more episodes. It just boil it down to the lowest common denominator. We should have started with that in episode one. Well, we really have nothing else to say for you. What has saved a lot of time? You know how much time we've wasted doing this crazy how much time. We finally got to it. Well, anyway, so that's where I'm at. So New York State. Finally started with online sports wager. Online. And that's a big part of it, which we were lamenting the fact as we were driving home that when it comes to California it's going to be in person. They're not going to start with mobile betting, which is, oh my gosh, what is it about California? Why is it taking it so long? Well, imagine people in California who don't live near a casino. Yeah. Right. Let's say you're in, I don't know in the desert. You have to drive like three hours to get to a casino to a tribal casino. The card rooms are probably not going to be able to take that. Yeah, exactly. You're not going to do that every day. You know, you know, during like baseball season, you're not going to drive every day to make bets. Anyway, New York State does finally have mobile gaming and you were reading an article. I read an article the other day and it's been huge. The first two weeks of January, there were over a $1 billion wager. Come on, California. We're one of those states that has a lot of programs for people and stuff like that. But it takes money. So why not have sports betting, get it from that? I mean, that's a chunk of money. And if they have mobile betting, it's not even going to be. I guarantee you if they have just in person betting, there's not going to be over a $1 billion. Oh, no way. In the first two weeks. No, and I bet a lot of the tribal casinos won't see all that much action. Yeah, initially, maybe. Yeah. But like we were saying, you know, the middle of baseball season. Yeah, you're not how many you're going every day there to make your baseball bets. Well, I guess not a surprise. Let me say it this way. It's amazing that they did over a $1 billion in sports wagering in New York. But not a surprise, really. When thinking about it, it's new, so everyone's on the bandwagon, right? After people get some losses, they'll go home and reflect, should I bet more next time so I can win back what I lost? Or should I slow down a little bit? Oh, okay, so it even applies to a sports medicine. Is that what you're saying? Yeah, that's exactly interesting. All right. Should I continue doing this legal online wagering or since I'm out of money? Should I get an account with the guy down the street on credit? Either way he's good. Oh my gosh. All right, well, last episode we had a listener contact us. He and his wife were in Las Vegas for their honeymoon and they're both 23 years old. And he was surprised that a lot of the vouchers, this is the way that he put a lot of vouchers only applied to people who were 25 and older for shows and what have you. And we got an overwhelming response from listeners saying, hey, maybe he was dealing with timeshare representatives. Right. So I contacted him and said, hey, you know, could that have been the case? And he said, oh, you know, maybe because, you know, they approached us as we were walking between Luxor and excalibur or something like that. So obviously, that is what it is. When it comes to timeshare presentations, they only want people who are 25 years and older to attend for a lot of reasons, you know, mostly monetary reasons. And they're figuring well, you know, a young couple maybe might not have the resource. So, you know, we're not gonna if they don't even own a home, they're probably not gonna get a tiny share. And so I wrote back and said, well, you know, don't feel bad, 'cause the last thing you want to do when you're in Las Vegas is sit through a timeshare presentation, right? So if somebody approaches you on the street in Vegas, anywhere between casinos or whatever. I mean, they're either trying to give you some porn material. Right. Or a timeshare. And what's the third thing? What would you classify as the third thing that they give you? Well, I'd say like, oh, you want to get into a club into a club or there's a show tonight if these are VIP tickets, which turn out to be worthless, right? Yeah. Everyone gets something. And that's all they're getting so never go to a time share. Oh, God. I would say, yeah, Vegas or otherwise. Right. Or otherwise. Have you been to one ever? No. I've been to one. We were on vacation and the place we were staying at kind of had something. And, you know, they kind of roped us into it. We went, we stayed a few minutes. I told the guy there's just no way I'm doing this. Yeah. And he said, okay, and we left. We didn't get anything. You didn't get anything because you left early right they want you to sit through the whole thing. Yeah. Well, the big news coming out of Vegas and listeners have probably already heard this is that bally's Las Vegas is going to be rebranded as horseshoe. Las Vegas. So the rumors have been out there for some time, but now it's official. Bally's is actually saying it. I love this because I'm glad that the horseshoe name is coming back to Las Vegas. Right. Although we always think of horseshoe. I know it's gonna be tough. I still sometimes inadvertently say horseshoe when I just mean binge. Right. Because that's what it was called, but so that's kind of the big news..

Texans Owner Cal McNair Used Anti-Asian 'Slur' During Golf Event

"The owner of the Texans. Cal mcnair used a racist slur at a charity golf tournament back in May. I thought, oh gosh, what did he say? What do you mean? What does that mean? Headline Texans owner Cal mcnair used anti Asian slur. During team golf event, this happened back in May. Cal mcnair wrapping up his remarks with according to a report at bally sports using a racist slur. And I'm thinking, gosh, that's tough. That's hurtful. That's hateful. One witness told a reporter, Michael silver, everyone gashed. Especially the people directly across from him. He and his wife seemed to think it was hilarious. It was dead silent. And then the article goes on to list scandals that his father had been involved in. His late father, who evidently used the phrase, you can't have the inmates running the prison. Referring to player protests about police brutality. I use that expression all the time. You can't have the inmates running the asylum. You can't have the inmates running the prison. I never thought of that as a slur. Or an attack. Certainly not racist. It's an expression that we've used for everybody uses. But back to Cal mcnair, I'm thinking, what did he do to use a terrible name to call you some racial horrible, you know, attack? Here's what he said. In fact, if you're driving, you might want to pull the car over to the side of the road. Because this is awful. You're going to be so shocked. At this monster, Cal mcnair, the owner, of the Texans, you're going to be so mortified, you're going to want him to be lose control of the team. You're going to want him to be incarcerated. I think incarceration is the is so egregious. It's so awful. It's so horrendous. I mean, even a New York newspaper calling this a racist slur. And when you hear it, it's worse than you think. Here's the quote, addressing a crowd of over a hundred. Over a hundred people, gasping. Fainting. Vomiting. Being taken away in the hospital, the hospital, they were so offended by this monstrous villainous evil racist named Cal mcnair. What did he say? Get to it Gallagher? He said, I'm sorry, we couldn't get together last year because of the China virus. That's it.

"bally" Discussed on Monocle 24: Section D

"Senior to say are in bally's latest house concept on region street in london. I suppose house concept. Yes started in milan. The idea was to create a new. I suppose vision from in terms of retail environment and how it was going to basically work across other stores around the world and how they could become more localized in every space and destination that existed. So there's some common threads that run through it but then also something that makes it unique to the city. It's i mean. Can you tell us what those common threads are. Yeah i suppose to start with what you can see around. The perimeter is how the bali store design team started working with a terra cotta. That was actually inspired by original founder. Valleys of town in terms of the roofing. And so the common threads a lot of it is around turco copper detailing you might come across the flooring. South actually assis- toronto flooring which was inspired by a swiss hottest acapulco play he was specialized in pointillism. So that's how you see this kind of like good structures flooring with the trump no and then the the red marble building up so muck and then on top of that actually you can see. Some of the rugs are also inspired by cleese work. Can you tell us how you start to to bring london into this space. Yeah sure so. Well i guess the foundation of the concept. Excuse the pod Is london clay. So it's like the straw which runs underneath the city and has led to lots of innovation. It's kind of allow tunneling for the underground forbes backs grids hamstrung tried to pass through and then kind of this iconic london brick which has been created from this klay itself so lots of architectural references like kind of come into the space self. We wanted to highlight london as city of innovation and particularly within sustainability. If you look at the moment like of kind of materialists innovation is actually coming out of the city itself. So we wanted to kind of tell that story within the store. And that's why we kind of reach out to james shaw to work alongside him and to collaborate with him on some pieces to exist. Within the space james is kind of at the forefront of waste innovation. I suppose he takes as plastic and produces these beautiful sculptural pieces and we thought that would be a great story to tell within the store and kind of two. I guess highlight the innovation. That's happening in the city of london. What was key was trying to get a little bit of a contrast between what joe mentioned in terms of looking at some of the traditional architectural elements that we brought in from. It's from clay or from the kind of brick perspective so when we were looking at what kind of materials to work with. James shaw basically stood out because the forms that we're looking at and the way the way he achieves this is actually working with these waste plastic pellets. He runs him through this kind of extrusion to alexa. Post and heats up you start adding pigments to start achieving. Some of the color palettes that we wanted to work harmoniously with the rest of the store as he feeds waste pellets and the dye. It starts basically creating these long extrusions. That are still malleable. Because they're still warm. And so we start forming and he starts creating these beautiful sculptures beat from the actual fixtures through to the book ends or the product risers as well. And so yeah. It's flooded creating something that despite it being technical material that's obviously made trying to be more circular by using waste and and giving it a new lease of life. It actually started looking very organic as well. And somehow you have this kind of contrast that works with other organic elements like the more kind of sharp hard lines break or the more forms type of rammed earth bellies a swiss brand. I know it's celebrating. One hundred and seventy th year. This year we talked about that. Offline so i guess. The house concept comes from milan. And then but we're talking about a swiss brand and that link between switzerland and the uk. Can you tell us how you who these two countries together in space. That was always a real discussion at the beginning of the project. And we did lots and lots research into this swiss british connection whilst doing that we really looked into. I guess swiss and british artists in particular jam. W tanner who was born in. London raise in london but was obviously well nine for his landscape and nature paintings. He exhibited his work when he was fifteen. Just stones from hair at the royal academy painting with the river thames and throughout his career he became really besotted with swiss landscapes and he spent lots of time made numerous trips and traveled around the country and he was really interested in the alps and this lakes and what was quite interesting was he managed to turn what will kind of considered at the time to be. These jacket desolate quite harsh landscapes into something quite ethereal and beautiful so i guess to create some some accent contests in the store. We brought in some of those contrasting weather inspired colors from times paintings in switzerland. This beautiful you can kind of feel that it's it's very soothing. Almost like being in the in this swiss country so when when you step in here i mean. Hopefully it's It's a journey that basically encourages more tactile discovery as well. So of course surrounded by incredible products with incredible craftmanship as well and so we needed to create environment that which facilitated journey that also felt very well crafted felt also disruptive to a certain degree and like you mentioned before when know. We're looking at some of the details of some of these materials. You feel like you wanna touch them. You wanna see what it's made out of and that's what we hope. I suppose if 'volkstaat curiosity in in a.

I'm not as serious of non fresh poker player anymore. All this kind of stuff. But i you see that and i see what daniels talking about it. It's like i don't. I don't wanna go and call the young group of elite poker players robots. 'cause i think that's really super unfair and i think that's wrong and these guys work really hard and and and tha denigrate them. I think is wrong but you do you. Do you see the culture of of took over school a little bit. And i think it's partly took over school but it's also partly because we've trained ourselves to suppress these emotions because if you let your because it's it's almost as if if you don't like your your thinking in your head if you don't suppress your emotions they're going to get the best of me like there this demon that's gonna come up so i gotta keep it pressed in this bottle. I can't let this genie out of the bottle. Because if i let that cork out it's going to consume me.

The nineties and muggy today is kind of an eighties muggy day but a weekend before it was in the fifties. I mean it was. It's been a really crazy a summer so far but that's kind of par for the course with this crazy year that we've had to for sure. Yes super crazy last year and a half and you've been you know exactly exactly over here in california dealing with a heatwave incredible proportions you know but seems like we get that a lot you know in a. I'm sure we'll be experiencing some fires this. You're not really looking forward to it. But i got my masks already. You know indoors. I i work from home. Do you work from home as well. Yes yes yes.

I i love flying deuce to seven. That's the game that i play a lot of do seven no limit. It's very unusual game but I final tabled at three times. So far finishing runner up once and so i really literally start my first trip focusing on that event and it pivots around bad events or whenever that event is then i kind of go from there This year. it's in the middle which is a little bit unusual usually. It's near the beginning. So that of changes my setup a little bit but you know it is what it is. I'm i i already booked my flight out there now just booking all my hotels and all that nice good so isn't going to be like a two three week trip The first one was supposed to be only a week. But i also do a charity event out there for the one step closer foundation. We do it every summer. usually it's been a planet. Hollywood has been a bally's lately. It's been at aria And if anyone is interested great. 'cause the president who i worked very closely with has cerebral palsy and he started foundation over ten years ago. And we do a poker tournament every year. Usually first prize is anywhere from five to ten thousand dollars with a lot of really cool prizes for the final table so It looks like we might do that again. Obviously we've we couldn't do it last year so we might do it again and so big depending on that. we'll see. it's probably going to be a two week trip to start. Ironically the end of the two weeks is the seniors event. And i actually quote officially. You'll yeah i would've qualified last fifty one now so i would Qualified last year so Yeah i mean. I'm probably a dinosaur right. Now when i say that but feels like yeah yeah right niceness. You are going to play in the senior event or may yeah no. I'm definitely going to play. A lot of people have always said. That's a really good event to play in Like i said. I was excited to potentially. I played the online version of last year. And i got a bunch of people you know.

A Casino Chain Bets It Can Hang with the Big Dogs of Fantasy Sports

"The super bowl is this weekend. And the vince lombardi. Trophy is on the line but also on the line. If you're a fantasy sports player your money if you're not familiar. Here's how fantasy sports work you pay apu pick a roster of real players and then wait to see how they do during real games. If your fantasy wide receivers scores a touchdown and a real football game your score goes up. If your fantasy quarterback throws an interception and a real game your suffers and if you find yourself with a roster of players that just aren't performing well you're out of luck you're stuck with him for the season you can kiss that prize money for the highest fantasy score. Good bye well. At least that's how it was before you'll came on the scene over a decade ago both and you'll and its rival draftkings allow users to play daily fantasy sports instead of waiting for the season to end to see how your fantasy team does. You can switch out players everyday feeling good about tom. Brady doesn't you can pick him one day and drop in the next. That flexibility is what makes fan duel and draft kings. The big dogs of daily fantasy sports both companies are valued at over a billion dollars but a recent acquisition is throwing another competitor into the ring and this company knows a bit about hedging. Your bets the casino chain bally's announced last week that it acquired monkey knife fight. Yes that's actually the name of that company but don't laugh it off. Monkey knife fight is the fastest growing daily fantasy platform in the united states and with that acquisition bally's hopes to be able to square off against its larger more established competitors their first challenge standout in a statement about the acquisition. Bali says monkey knife fight is already doing that. He claims that rival platforms are clogged with professional daily fantasy sports players. Which makes it tougher us regular folks to win yes. There are professional daily fantasy. Sports players bally's though says monkey knife fight attracts sports fans and makes quote having fun and winning part of the experience. Another benefit of the acquisition says. Bally's is more customers. Bally's is a big name in betting and betting which all comes down to chance is very different than playing fantasy sports which comes down to skill. at least that's the argument. Fantasy sports companies have made to lawmakers right now only around two dozen states allow sports betting and for bally's that's just not enough customers but guess who already has a wide database of customers in thirty seven states where daily fantasy sports are legal. Yup monkey knife fight. The acquisition means more users in more states for bally's but fan duel draft. Kings shouldn't necessarily be sweating yet. Both companies surged in the third quarter of two thousand twenty draft kings monthly paying users topped one million and fan duel attracted nearly half a million new users that quarter. So it's fair to say that neither companies going anywhere fast because even though sports are a national pastime it looks like fantasy. Sports may soon be edging in on that

"My name is Sean Bally Gin. It is always ah, pleasure to have the cochair coach, winners and and coach as always. It's a pleasure to chat with you. And I think this week is one of those subtle reminders of something you told me. Very early on in my tenure in the Wayne State family, you can't overlook anybody in the glee AC. Absolutely. I What about this game a little bit before we started and actually got a little bit sick. So that way you have to go ahead and go ahead and talk about it. Let's think happy thoughts. Maybe maybe prime rib on a smoker. Well, think some happy thoughts like get each other happy. We've got some special guests this week. Greg Oberst, that Pat Cecile Lavonia guy. And rally Ross as well, really special guests at halftime and certainly one of those Wayne State families as well coach As always, it's been a lot of fun being back on the highway before we get to the locker room report. Let's bring in the above four mentioned Greg over Stat for the warrior spotlight, which is brought to you as always by our friends at Jos Gourmet, and first of all, Greg Really, really appreciate you taking the time to join us here. Back on the highway. How are you? Good. Good guys, are you What? What, Mrs for anything. Hey, You know what? Talk to me about that 2011 season. You know, one of the things that I always bring up the guys and I was actually having a conversation with some of the guys in the athletic department about this is is. How was that nine years ago? For goodness sakes. What's your take on that? Do you feel the same way? Every day. I just can't believe it's almost 10 years. Now. It seems like yesterday when Ah Wei have the championship run, and we're just leaving Wednesday, and it's absolutely created to think about where we are right now and how much our lives have changed. Life goes by so much faster. The older you get. Yeah, no doubt about that. Greg. What are some of your memories from from that 2011 season as I mentioned for people out there that did not know you got it done on the field. You got it done off the field as well. I'd be remiss if I did mention that you were named to the glee Echo all academic team, But give me some of your memories from that run. I mean, nothing but great memories, That's for sure. I think the best ones they're making the play offs. You know that Sunday after he lost his Finley went from the You know lowest of lows, too. Next day, finding out we made the championship and that was kind of our 2nd 2nd life and That's why I turned the corner for us and being the first to know. First team ever in school history to make the playoffs. Just let the fire under us and I think to this day Still, my most favorite game was that first point of game in Minnesota ST Cloud when we got six inches of snow in two hours and Or a half time they're trying to postpone the game or delay the game because of how we started to turn this switch and before it. That was kind of. I guess. My favorite moment of the whole season was halftime during Minnesota. That's awesome. You know, Coach Winters and and you and I have talked about this many times because I I know you were watching a movie. When it was announced the Warriors were going to make the playoffs. I was ticked off at the Lions and having a pity party and temper tantrum. Greg, were you with the boys? What was going on in that moment? You guys found out that You were going to get that second life and make that trip to Saint Cloud? Yeah, I was with Jo Jo Long was my roommate for all five years and we're watching the playoffs show And then when we found out that we made it, I mean, Well, attacks each other and regrouped and basically said, You know, this is our second chance, and we can't let this slip. Coach. What do you have to say about? Ah, big, tight end like this guy? I mean, it meant so much to you on the field, obviously got it done off the field talk about bringing Greg into the warrior family. Well, I think Greg is a guy who, hey, probably doesn't know this, but he probably changed the atmosphere quite a bit by his effort academically as well as on the field. I think that a CZ you look at his group in the the recruiting class that he was a part of those guys were really good students and they were really focused on DH. You could see that. And how they played. You can see that and how they took care of their academics, the community service and it led to guys who followed them and follow in their footsteps. And they set the bar really high. And I'm really proud of Greg and and the rest of those guys for that. Greg, you You grew up in Whitmore Lake, and I'm sure you had some choices and in where you might want to not only go to college for academic reasons, but continue your college football career. What made you decide on Wayne State? My recruiter was coach pile Mark pile and he brought me down to Detroit for the first time in the second, I stepped off that I got married out of the car with my parents. There's just something about this city vibe and just everything that was going on where the program was going, the rebuilding process and the second I got there. I just instantly fell in love. Wow. That simple, huh? That's simple. And then you know, when everyone started to show up, we started to meet the classmates and all the freshmen. I mean, we instantly instantly hit it off from the first day we all met and it was From that day forward like a second family. Just all that. You know, all the different walks of life got put together and the whole senior class. I mean to this day we still talking against some of my best friends come from Wednesday and are true freshman class that that made it through our old five years together. You know, Coach has got a warm your heart every time you hear that, because it seems like almost every player that we've talked to from the 2011 season goes back to The camaraderie that the teammates the friendships, the bond that those guys had from 2010 carrying over to 2011 Boy, It's hard to put a price tag on that right. It is so much fun to hear. Hear guys talk about that. And I know what it means. Obviously, I played a long time ago and I still friends with all those guys. So I know how important that part of it is. And you know, I'm really proud of the group that we have. But I must say, Greg, you scared me there When you said coach pile recruited you Oh, my goodness. That's what that's probably one of the amazing things that I don't remember. Yeah, I go way back. It's been 10 years ago High school basketball game, and that's great. That's Awsome. Greg over set kindly joining us back on the highway here on your home for the Warriors. F M one a 15 A m 1400 the patriot. Greg always like to find out what you guys were doing. I know you keep in touch with Your teammates, but certainly your extended family and the warrior family would love to know what's going on in your life. Yeah, we actually live down river.

How is your weak as Faras? Because you're in The front line and in the battle and what I mean by that is you and I are a lot the same where we're positive people and I listened early on in the week and where you had to sell some older Ma'am, that you know what? She wasn't listening to what you were saying, which is, you know, we could get into the negatives of that. But I think you handled it so well throughout the week is that such turmoil? So tonight on 808 590 W. J. R. 808 59. 00 W. J. I didn't even know 0957 to give us a call.

Tell me how the weak wass hosting guy Gordon. Mitch Albom? I don't know. I didn't. I don't sleep turned the overnights. I don't know who you did through the overnights and stuff, but But how was it and I want your take on Ah, Big news about the high school sports. Coming back in a Mac. I love it. It's an incredible rush. You know, seriously I do in the shows is is awesome. It's it really is And you know, I think at the end of the day, you know we are a lot of like in a lot of ways, and I think common sense. A lot of times is thrown out the window and sometimes you know, you have to tell people okay? Quit looking through it. You know, through your blue colored glasses, your red colored glasses and you know life isn't that way. You know there are different shades in there so You know that it's gonna happen. I mean, I I've made my feelings abundantly known for months now, not only on other shows, but here about the lock down and such and about football. We have the opportunity yesterday, talkto. Mark, you'll and I, I think, Darrin To anybody out there that was left wondering whose decision it was to not play high school football. I think that question was answered dramatically and emphatically yesterday. There also happens that Governor Whitmer came out and said, Okay, you can go, but I'm strongly discouraging it. I don't You know, I don't think this is a good idea and what it was about an hour and one minute. That it took for the S A to gather its executive council and make the decision to go now again. I'm asking people to use their deductive reasoning here. Okay, You tell me who was keeping it closed. I think we know the answer to that. I'm not here to play bad guy or anything like that, Because the good news is it's open. Let's hope it stays open. Let's hope that you know, safety protocols are in place. I want to believe in my heart of hearts, Mac. That there is nobody out there that is sitting there going Come on. I'm hoping for people to get sick because then I can play the time honored game of I told you, So If you're one of those people, I suggest you go get some help, because that's not the way to think of other human beings. But unfortunately we live in a society today where people the importance of having that ability to say. I told you so is just of the utmost importance to them. I hope we never have that conversation and I'm not going to hold a grudge. The good news is things they're firing up Mack, and let's hope that everybody stays healthy. So you know there's a couple points to that. And you know to me, that's ah. Plausible deniability. I think it's called Where you You know, It's like the parent where it's like. Can we go inside? Can we go outside? Is this rain start? Can we go outside? Go outside, and finally they're like, Yeah, but go outside. But don't give muddy or whatever, knowing it's muddy out there and you're probably going to do it. You know, anyways, that if you let the kids outside, they're probably going to get money, not saying they're going to get This covert in this case, But there's the opportunities you've got to see how it falls. And to me. I learned a lot and I brought it up last week when I went in front of the Chesterfield board how People. It's unfortunate that decisions are made through common sense. You know something like you said, But you know what is common sense, Shawn. Every Friday. Here on the DARE. McCarty show. It's the legend himself for years.

"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit.

Hope and Worry Mingle as Countries Relax Coronavirus Lockdowns

"Again just to repeat I had to run through some things pretty quickly Germany is re opening all of its shops and allowing soccer Italy Spain and France have eased their lock downs after the hot spots in those countries have now seen a record low number of coronavirus cases something that my my point is that lockdowns are being lifted all over the world not just here in the in the United States and there is mounting pressure to keep states close to keep the lockdown on and in place in the United States primarily in Democrat run states and we all know what the reason for this is there is an ongoing effort to **** the American economic recovery if you want to call it that whatever the renewed economic activity is and it's it's breathtaking to behold it really has a people talk about we got across the aisle we gotta show people that we can work together we gotta have demonstrated that we can make sure the government can work and we we can't even unified on a pandemic we're not it does not actually does surprise me at all because I know Eric and laughed I know the backwards and forwards I know today's Democrat party and I and I know what their political objectives are I'm just telling you they don't care capitalism is taking a hit that's in fact there's some of the some things happening in this in this situation that they have been secretly hoping would happen some day somehow main socialist by design don't like capitalism they've been looking for ways to damage and destroy it this thing is come along it's a godsend to many people on the left and so your your your if you if you have people who consider the United States is the problem in the world because the United States is too big it's too big a superpower it's too big economically it's just not fair something like this comes along and can cut the United States down to size twenty people in this country most of the Democrat party who are all for it I don't believe me I don't but it it it may be something you don't want to just take a look at where states are shut down I will continue to be shut down where governors don't want to open them up ask what party they're in and ask what could the reasons for this continued lockdown and the continued destruction of people's economic fortunes and watch what could that be about what purpose does it serve because believe me it serves a purpose keeping a state walk down keeping people in financial ruin with no opportunity to go back to work it does serve a particular political objective and that objective of course beating Donald Trump in November it sounds simplistic to some of you but it is the case I was reading I mentioned earlier in the program you can guardian is a column here my somebody named Francine prose I never heard of her I don't even know she's a real person is a sort of name or whatever but the piece is entitled what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion the some heavy is while the nation grieves the US president has spent less than five minutes expressing compassion for those who are suffering we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if a humane competent well informed adult was making the decisions that affect us all now that intrigues me because I want to ask you just just point blank take everything that's happening and leave it in place everything that has happened everything that is happening and what you think the immediate future all the words do you think Major League Baseball will play this season do you think the NFL will kick off with fans in the stands whatever you think yes fine if you think you know whatever whatever you think of the current circumstances would you be thinking differently would you be less worried if somebody we're in the White House expressing compassion for people who are stuck when it change your attitude about any of this what are you against compassion all I'm not against conventional put words in my mouth I'm asking what good does it do in the context of what we're talking about here what by the way that what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion where has it been established that is heartless so there's a there's a gigantic presumption this whole thing off which is companies are heartless SOB about Americans know it and trump needs to get their forgiveness quick because trump is making this worse trump is making those wars because he doesn't have any compassion for the people suffering the nation is grieving now what is trump doing what do you define compassion a whole bunch of different ways but can optimism being compassion I know that trump refuses they get caught up in pessimism he doesn't like it he doesn't want to be identified with it he want he doesn't he doesn't want to be involved in things that create panic so trump well often times be optimistic because he thinks that's far more productive and far more helpful for people then just sit there and wring his hands together and talk about how sandy is because there are certain things that you just assume nobody is happy with the number of people who have died here nobody is happy with the number of people are sick should you have to save that for people to understand that about you what we give you an example this happened when I was out you remember the brouhaha that erupted after trump at one of the briefings talked about the possibility of injecting Clorox or whatever was you remember the outrage over this you remember people talking about how dumb and stupid all my god how embarrassing trump actually all dirty looked at the score of queen and he's asking her to confirm they could someday shook people up with Marshall it's dangerous this guy is an absolute these stupid people were saying now what happened what happened is the trump was briefed on some news that was announced who who's the guy who was the what department wasn't wasn't FEMA somebody made an announcement at that briefing that they had discovered the virus doesn't do well in high temperatures it doesn't do well on services it lasts thirty seconds with disinfectant Clorox whatever it was well trump had been briefed on all that a mere couple of minutes before the briefing and start I don't believe Donald Trump actually thinks or thought or to shoot anybody up what Y. sol rocks what Donald Trump is is I can do what kind of person and if he here is that this virus is wiped out in thirty seconds with exposure to whatever it was Clorox then his mind is going okay so how do we apply that and he thinks out loud how do we apply that if that if that kills it then how do we apply that to people who have a deep thanks out loud he's not literally thinking of shooting people up with one of these disinfectants are and yet the assumption was that he was thinking that the assumption was that he saw store but any such a fool that he literally want to go grab a patient and get a syringe and put some parts in there and have doctor works should the person up in sap the virus he's not and yet everybody reacted to it as though he is that stupid the is that heart was that he is that I have encountered that side of Donald Trump won the day all of the state of the union and which Catherine I were his gas and I got the presidential medal of freedom you would not believe what all had to happen for me to get to Washington that day and none of it what happened were it not for him making it happen things that you would say are impossible to get done in two hours or three cannot do he did it all he's just he's a can do kind of person he doesn't have no aunt or something negative in his it is make up so we goes about these briefings yeah the briefer was the homeland security undersecretary for science in fact the bill Ryan was built brand came out told everybody what happened to the virus in high humidity and high temperatures and certain kinds of disinfectants and so forth all Donald Trump as a problem solver and he likes to encourage people he likes to inspire people he likes to get people moving and he does think things that a lot of people that can't be done candy any doesn't just sit there one second if he's dealing with somebody who thinks something can't be done he's going to try to tell it can the mistake here was to do this impromptu ad libbing in front of cameras but I guarantee you that had the cameras not been there had trouble learn this so he would have been asking the boys are some way we can apply this is there some way we can take what you've just learned here and apply it to the way we're treating people with the virus he doesnt mean shut him up with this impact of poison is there something to learn here whether we actually this was just so over the top you remember trump any of trump's foolish trump this trump slap it was so bad that trump himself his staff got you got to go out to you got to fix this so I went out there the next day in trump said I was being sarcastic I was being sarcastic with the media I was asking a sarcastic wit that's obviously not what he was doing hi I wish I had been in the meeting to formulate the strategy the procedure here for dealing with with this because believe me it could have been converted into a total positive the reason I bring all this up is because it we have a piece here in the UK guard it will Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lacking the last thing Donald Trump is as heartless and the last thing he has none of his compassion it is the exact opposite Donald Trump believes everybody's capable of greatness he believes it everybody's capable of accomplishing things he doesn't believe in sitting around and rubbing people's shoulders and saying it's okay you suck you're never going to amount to anything but I'll make you feel better about it he doesn't believe in that inspiring people getting the most out of people particularly people work for him particularly for people that can't do the things that he needs done it is that he can't do himself he needs those people come through we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if I humane competent well informed the doubt was making the decisions that affect this there's another pull cord from his face and yet we've learned that Franklin Roosevelt turned away refugees from Hitler's Europe we can still imagine how comforting it was for those who lived through the Great Depression hearing his radio speech also people were suffering in the Great Depression and lost everything but somehow listening to Roosevelt on the radio made him feel better maybe you've made them feel better but it did not change their circumstances my mother used to get real mad at me she make me eat everything on the plate I'm sure yours did too and if I didn't do it she would say things like you know there are people there are people on the other side of the house over in China

Ballerina: Fashion's Modern Muse, an interview with Patricia Mears

"On your new exhibition. It is truly magical. It's supremely beautiful. Have to say and I learned a ton from its accompanying catalogue which is called Ballerina. Fashions Modern Muse for any of our listeners. Who WanNa pop on over to Amazon and pick up a copy so for any of our listeners. Who like me may not be ballet aficionados? I'm hoping I we can do a little bit of Bali history just a little bit. When do I see the emergence of ballet? And what distinguished? It from other types of dance which preceded it bally's quite an old art form the genesis of what you see today. The basic steps in the positions were already in place as early as the sixteen sixties. The first formal school was started in sixteen sixty one under the auspices of Louis. The fourteenth who himself was a very accomplished valeted Ella. It was clearly an aristocratic endeavor. And you see that carried over today. This would erect posture. This sort of very formal movement of the body so in some ways it is part of that French also regime aspect and we still see it today but ballet's also a very athletic endeavor so it's marrying these two extremes if you will sort of restraint kind of technical Bravura and again. That's why I think they call ballet dancers artists athletes. Yeah because they merged the two and then fast forward. The ballet went from being aristocratic very classical in its themes and male dominated to about the eighteen. Twenty eighteen thirties when women take over ballet's international. It's much more standardized and very importantly the romantic style. The sort of supernatural narrative takes over and it seems that women artists were better suited to express this new ballet form. What can you tell us about the life of a professional ballerina in the early years of the art forum in the Nineteenth Century? What was her place in society very different from today. The Ballerina really sat at the bottom of the socio economic scale. If you will. There were a few exceptions in. Even though there was a flourishing in the eighteen thirties and forties where there were certainly respectable stars By and large these women were very marginalized. They were paid very little and as a result they were often exploited. Many of them had to turn to prostitution To survive and we see these beautiful pictures by got today showing what seems like an idealized environment but in fact often in the back. You'll see men lurking. They were known as the abomination repower men of the Jockey Club and they regularly exploited these young women so many of them had very sad stories even though they were quite accomplished artists and speaking of data. I think there's even a little back story to his very famous sculpture of the fourteen year. Old Dancer Right. That's right that famous. Bronze sculpture is of a young girl She was part of a family where I think her sister was. Also a dancer but sadly she was likely a victim of the circumstances at the time where she hardly made any money to survive. Many of the dancers were hungry. They were physically exerting themselves and this young lady did fall into prostitution as well and probably died a very sad life so yeah it's horrible to think of and so different from the way we view dancers today right and it really is a fact that the majority of ballerinas then and now will never make it to star status. That's right or or you know prima which was a term. That's kind of more favorite in the past right. Today's top dancers are really generally called principal dancers. If I'm correct right why this shift and terminology from Ballerina to Principal Dancer. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that ballet culture came up in Great Britain and especially the United States and we view ourselves as a bit more democratic so the idea of the Ballerina which was a term given to very very few female dancers. You really had to be at the apex at one point in the late nineteenth century in Russia and said there were only six ballerinas in all of Russia was extraordinary So you can see how limited the term was bandied about then but today we view of the hierarchy of the principal soloist in the quarter ballet member but I think it erases the difference between male versus female and one that really I think asserts a sense of achieving it not so much through social connections or through whims but really through technical as well as artistic merit so. This is one of the reasons we see that change in France. They still use the word. A twelve or star to designate the very top rank. Oh Nice Yeah. I'd like to turn our attention to one of the all time greats who we were just talking about Before we started recording Marie Tahiliani And she really rose to international claim in the early nineteenth century. I'm hoping you could tell us a little bit about her. And also her innovations which helped to shape the future trajectory of ballet as an art form. That's right I think Marie Tagliani was important to very significant ways. One was the art form itself. He was not considered a beautiful woman and had certain physical flaws. Someone told me that. She was slightly hunchback and her father who was a brilliant choreographer was able to create dance. Movements that did not distract from that in fact Really enhanced her physical illness She was very hard working and she was a pioneer of the idea of going up on point sort of Now we think of it is absolutely essential in classical ballet for a female dancer but it was very rare when she started and I think the other thing that she did was to raise the respectability of the Ballerina. She was very careful in the way she cost him herself. She was discreet. Show is where pearls she had. A Floral Diadem And the other thing is that she acted very lady like off stage and she made sure her physical depictions whether in costume more in high fashion. We're always done in a very respectable way so she was able to do something. Many other ballerinas could not do which was Garner female audience. Even the young Princess Victoria was a huge fan of hers and so if members of the royal family could embrace. It was considered acceptable. So she was a breakaway star but unusual in that way and and correct me. If I'm wrong queen perhaps named one of her horses Tahiliani. He did tell Yoni was one of her race horses and also there was a stagecoach that ran between cities that was called the Tagliani fabrics after her famous role muscle feed many different types. Candies were named after her and the Russians were especially enamored. There were some bellum who made a soup out of her shoes needed hotel. Yoni mania swept through Europe and the eighteen thirties forties talk about being a mythic. Yes exactly Speaking of iconic elements of ballet. I would be very very surprised if there's a single one of our listeners out there who is not familiar with the garment which is of course. Queen essentially synonymous with ballet and I am of course talking about the two one thing that I was taken a bit backed by. When I was reading the exhibition catalogue was the somewhat body origins of this term. So how did this term to come about an aunt at its most basic? What is a two two while the two two is just the Ballerina skirt? It's costume and when it was invented in the eighteen thirties It was a word that came from. Rather if you will of course background it's a slang or play on the word. Kuku which itself is slang for the petite call. Which is your behind. Basically ballet audiences were different in the way they were positioned back in those days. The people who were members of the aristocracy or had money were always in what they called the box seats or the rings that were on the upper tiers of the Opera House and it was down in the orchestra seats where the more working class people sat and they could sometimes get a glimpse of the Valarie Yes that they were diaphanous garments and so sometimes depending on how she twirled or whatnot it you could get a look up them and they were also bit dangerous they were often starched ahead sizing in them which made them flammable and with the open gas lights. Some of the Ballerina skirts caught on fire and sadly a number of stars did die that

"Usually doesn't take much persuasion to get children to go and see a film at the cinema can be quite a different situation though for other art forms like setting quietly for a ballet performance. Now, a British ballet company has come up with an idea they hope will introduce a new young audience to classical dance, and perhaps their parents as well lauch provider has this report from Manchester in the UK. And popcorn cornet. At one of those massive multi screen cinema complexes where you can pick and choose from a dizzying array of made for popcorn blockbusters as a group of children aged around four to six eagerly waiting to get into one of the screens. But then not here to watch the latest Pixar animation who Mary Poppins watching. That sitting comfortably in the cinema. My name is an neater and before you'll get to watch the wonderful. I thought it might be nice. If a toll to a little story. This is the story of the toys and the hat performed by world-class stances from the lead spaced northern ballet company. Most children will already be familiar with the story and with the use of bright colors phone costumes, and some animation the dances on the silver screen have this audience transfixed. So you take a step with that leg and cross over this lack? Stat another step and three bulbs of the head. Hi, my name's government cake. I am tortoise and a massive Cain apply. -able shell on my back that allows me to move and I've been how on 'em. So basically the cinema screenings 'em at the beginning of them. We are going to teach the kids some of the dance moves. So that Juding m the the performance they can kinda get up and have allow dance along with us. Just great to see cads engage in with the arts and that way. Government cage on his fellow dances. Already been toying with three different live Bally's, especially adopted four children. But now the ballet company hopes to reach a far bigger audience with these filmed versions with the help of event cinema distributor sin ovens. They'll host over two hundred screenings across the UK this winter and spring David Nixon is the northern Ballet's artistic director. Once you put something into a cinema. You have possibility to to really reach out and go further, it's an experiment. I mean, we haven't done it before we're hoping people engage with it. And that they see it as an add on to theater experiences. Not instead of after they've seen something like this in the cinema. Is it also your hope that they might then feel it's time to approach theater to have already done. So you always trying to get people to the theatre. It's about new people and is about this. Kind of unconscious bias that. Some people have that they can't go to theater, I some people feel that when you enter into that elitist thing I'm not of the right class to go to the and so hopefully in that different environment.

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses bro on row. Those are the first lines of a poem written by Lifton Colonel John McCrea, a Canadian medic who served with the first brigade of the Canadian field artillery on the western front in the first World War, and who died of pneumonia in France, not long after hostilities ceased after the second battle of IPE in April, and may of nineteen fifteen McRae noticed that the first life to push through the devastated landscape and muddy improvised, cemeteries were scarlet poppies. The flower has since become across the Commonwealth a symbol of remembrance in modern Britain. However, the poppy has become a symbol of something else. A designation of which side you are on in one of the twenty first centuries, deeply tedious culture wars until really quite recently. The Royal British legions annual poppy appeal worked like this sometime in early November you approach to current or former soldier in a train station dropped some change into their bucket. Perhaps parted with a few awkward were. Words in appreciation of this and walked away with a red paper flower into your coat, which you wore until remembrance day, November eleventh or more usually until it fell off sometime beforehand. Money was raised for a fine. 'cause and a gesture of gratitude and solidarity was made it was a humble and dignified ritual. It is now a circus outside novelty poppies appear on the fronts of taxis and tube trains, and with increasing frequency in the lapels of politicians apparently feared that sporting anything list. Ostentatious would be sacrilege the mesmerizing Twitter account of giant puppy watch has this year spotted such monstrosities as poppy face paint, poppy themed pizzas and a poppy. Replacing the kickoff spot on at least one football ground. This has been made worse as has absolutely everything by the toxic combination of tabloid and social media Hughes and cries are raised should some of the public figure fail to sport a poppy last year temple veins, throbbed purple when England cricketer Moeen Ali, not insignificantly to the nine ruckus that ensued. Embiid Muslim will spotted poppy free in eighteen photo by the time Ali explained that his poppy had fallen off. And he just hadn't noticed the horse of confected outrage had long since skate the stable door of truth. It is possibly if I a cly instructive that some of the most interesting reflections on the puppy have come from the few footballers who prefer not to wear. What is now default addition to their kit at this increasingly tiresome time of year stoke city's James McLean is uncomfortable with the poppy ju to his upbringing in Derry Northern Ireland with the British army is not regarded with unequivocal admirations, Manchester United's pneumonia matych has decided he cannot separate the poppy from his memories of his own country Serbia being bombed by Britain among other nations in one thousand nine hundred nine. The annual poppy row like all such four or against Bally Hoos both works and infuriates by refusing to admit ambiguity, this correspondent who is a poppy wear for what that may be worth is personally aware of actual current or former military personnel who prefer not to wear one. And if people who donate generously to the appeal, but believe advertising the fact to be gauche people contain multitudes political discourse. In this cursed age seeks to cleave everything into binary oppositions. This will absolutely not be the last word on the subject, but it should be. It is if you like your cut out and keep poppy route adjudication to be referred to every year when the interim between Halloween and Christmas is consumed by this fact, she was ruckus if the struggles and sacrifices of those who lie in Flanders fields and elsewhere were for any one thing it is surely that you may wear a particular symbol or not wear one for whatever.
