"All around nice guy all around nice guy clubhouse clown dancing naked on top of a table read the cubs way. It's anthony rizzo. Anthony rizzo yes. Yeah he was my. Here's my next guy. And i mean go ahead because you're the one who started go ahead and introduce all talk about kind of already. Did you know. I feel like this. Is i mean this is just who he is. So he's the best. He's third in one right now. That's a huge deal. It's a huge deal. Because he's he's so young he's still playing really good baseball rabea. So this the go in with this first off. It's a big deal. The he became As great players is to you know. And you've got john lester the same. Yes those guys. And there's a handful of guys but he is a fan favorite big no-doubt people love anthony. Rizzo yes and. I'm sure that he is a big part of the clubhouse that keeps keeps those teams together. Yeah you know like you talked about was that he was. He was giving motivational speeches naked right motivational speeches table. He started a dance party and naked. Dante s something. That one point as well. Yeah so if that's shocking. Anybody i mean you just gotta understand the major league club. Houses are are rated like total at the very least watch major league definitely. I don't yeah. That's an accurate depiction of a major league clubhouse that sets her down to r. rated any who know he you can't tell the story of the two thousand sixteen cubs without anthony rizzo leadership and role that team and you can't tell the story of the cubs got twenty sixteen exactly so if you pick the one guy from two thousand sixteen and you can have it without two thousand sixteen. It's got to be up for sure. That was my exact process. Asunto as i was going through trying to find. Somebody said i've got gotta find somebody from that team because that's a huge deal. It's the hugest the hugest deal the most hugest. It's huge deals at twenty sixteen team. And so then i went through the list. It's like okay. Who's going to be like i. Love says totally absolutely fantastic relied initial thought honestly. Was david romy to cable. Why did you discount him. Because i have the same reasons. Because he didn't he didn't play the cubs. Long two seasons. Yes that's why so long. That's why in the fact that he stuck around and he's the managing wins another world series as a manager totally. Yeah yeah yeah. He's necessarily on but he's definitely in the race. I sure yes agree with you. One hundred percent on that but also throws kris bryant. He was like the guy. Yeah there's like we're bringing him up and we're gonna win the world series. Yes he was. He was the golden child that was propped up on the pedestal. Yet by the franchise yep but he's gonna leave. He's get he's leaving. yeah yes gone. That's why he can't be on there that not only that but he did not have the leadership role. No rizzo had no. But i'll tell you what that david ross homerun big deal. Oh man forty years old after a rain delay. No ever and became in to substitute. Yeah oh my work bench. One of the best. You didn't have a passed ball. And he went up. It was like really trying to make up. That's right. That homerun considered david ross. Because of his role on that team saying his role with the cubs. But it wasn't as impactful as anthony. Rizzo so i agree with you know. That's amazing dude. I don't know if we're going to for four. I know. I'm really worried about this last.

"Looking back baseball family here we are going to do the rest of our our chicago cubs mount rushmore. We've done the first two. The first one we overlapped on cap anson from eighteen. Hundreds dallas fun zero funeral and he. You know we talk between was it. The was the braves talked about great mustaches and baseball a little bit. Yeah he falls in that category. It's kind of a thin moustache a little bit feathery. But i think he would fall into that category. Not necessarily on the mount rushmore. Great mustaches in baseball. You would be cubs though. Yeah and maybe we'll do that. We finish these as we'll do co. team mustache we're doing if we have not already started since we're year now. Cotton space time continuum. It's true in the way back or break. Okay go ahead. And give me your third mount rushmore Nominee as we've discussed before is her mind. Nomination in the third slot is going to be possibly controversial. I pick somebody from the two thousand sixteen world series team felt like that was inevitable and really when you break it down for me. There's really only a couple of names that that can get called up in that situation. I can feel your energy. Brad are you. I agree with me on this. I'm worried that i'm going to i. Don't because i have somebody from that team as well do you really do because you're shifty over there. I know k. I don't know what he has put unpredictable. You never know what's gonna come from the side of the table. I'm telling you okay so let me let me set it up the way i said okay. This guy will always go down as a cub. I swear if he leaves the cubs again. He's current player. Few leaves the cubs. I will be so sad. It's going to be terrible. He's were currently sitting. Twenty twenty. One is his eleventh season in the bigs. He had a short stint with another team. I won't give away. Who with another team in twenty eleven and now in two twenty twenty one. He's been with the cubs for ten years. Twenty one career right now. Thirty five five thousand five point five. Were already at a lifetime. Batting average to seventy two hundred home runs three time all star two thousand sixteen world series four time gold glove silver slugger platinum glove award winner and.

"Twenty two at least. Yeah so i like cap pants and this is. He's an excellent excellent piece to our mount rushmore agree. He's my statistical anomaly. Pick he's my stat leader. Pick so For those of you. That don't know. I have a little bit of a system that i use to put together my mount rushmore brad. That does not know. there's no system order. Yeah but cap. Anson's my statistical leader in. I'm telling you that. Over twenty two years with just the cubs franchise. It gets better more. Statistics he considering runs scored. He has one thousand nine hundred ninety nine runs scored ida played one more day. I know right save. I get that one more seriously. That puts him at ninth all time in major league baseball ninth. Then we're talking. Hits three thousand four hundred thirty five hits number seven all time now. This dude hasn't played in over one hundred years and he's still a number seven slot Now this is the best one. He's the first basement. He played a couple of positions but as a first baseman only if you only look at his first base numbers he is responsible for twenty one thousand six hundred ninety nine putouts that means that he recorded the out in the in the play that puts him at number two all time. And you know you're you're telling me these numbers before in trying to figure who was like my gosh. That's a that's an outstanding. That's huge number. Damn crazy be second but you know it makes perfect sense being in the dead ball era the bosnian field. Lots a lot of ground. And even i'm sure at that point they were bosnia. Feel the oppo playing very shallow. Where does that ball yeah. It wasn't uncommon. I'm sure for bald. A ground ball to go to right field. The guy to get out totally hard. Hit all the right filler. He's he's out so it makes perfect sense of so there's a of nine three whole lot of four three nine three. The would be pretty cool though happen very often especially not anymore. Yeah as a faster. Balls or ted lots. Lots of details didn't even have a mound back then. It was just a circle for most of the time. It's completely different game. well no. it's not completely different but there are some nuances. That make that change slow. Okay all right. That's we agree on number one. Brad won't go ahead with your next. Okay i have. This is a player. Who is first introduced to as a. I was four when i got my first glove mile. Who gave me my first glove and it was. You know when you're literally had like the signature in the palm glove of course so this player signature is in the palm of my glove. That actually had for a very long time used way longer than i probably should have because the glove that i used primarily as i got a little bit older a catcher's glove so i've said this in my bag just because i had it. I think i was thirteen. When i replaced it. Okay so he's not a catcher a catcher keno. This is brian sandberg sandberg. Yeah oh boy so he is hall of famer and he wanted to be p award ten time all star nine time gold glove winners seven times over silver slugger and major league player of the year. So he he got his first all star. He was bowed to his first..

"Contrast to ten thousand four hundred thirty three failures or losses. I guess is probably work with not every loss is a failure brag. Okay thanks you're right okay. All right don't lead off so far an extent but no twenty one playoff appearances. Seventeen pennants we have three count on three world championships. Seven players had their numbers retired. That includes jackie robinson. Always so there we go for sure. Brad look to know who in no particular order. Do you have as one of the newest k. So we've actually been here before it feels like this is something we've done because talked about this. Before came along those lines. I would start with cap. Anson cap anson really really. You wouldn't happen to mean cabinet. Where's his full name a adrian. Constantine anson would you. That's the guy that's the guy he's on. My list is wilson. of course he is. Yes so this is a big deal to me. I have right here on baseball reference. I have the he was the best player in eighteen. This is going back. We're going all the way for digging. Eighteen hundred zero people. Eighteen eight eighteen eighty nine for the chicago white stockings. Now this is not the american league chicago white sox. This is not a predecessor right. This is still the national league chicago cubs but were originally known as the white stockings on the orphans than the cubs. Actually the colts orphans. Cost cultural cups. Yeah this is the chicago white. Stockings eighteen eighty eight eight hundred eighty nine best player on the team. Also the manager bingo. Okay break that was eighty eight eighty nine. Let's go back to eighteen eighty one. I'm ready the very same manager. Yeah player-manager onto that's unreal to me. Yes i i. I don't i can't comprehend it. I've said this before. The i've coached before i've played. I can't imagine doing both right. you know. it's it's unreal so cap anson also so he became the manager in eighteen. Seventy nine finished his mid managerial career in eighteen ninety seven yen. You know what. He didn't eighteen hundred seven as well. He also retired yes. He was a player manager for most of his career. He was not the entire time. Like let's see eighteenth certain eighteen seventy one. Now that i'm looking at the years i'm like yeah i ke was pretty much. Yeah twenty two seasons with the cubs. Yeah with what we now know. As the cuffs he became the manager in. Sorry i had that happen. I'm dislike so all over the place right now. The eighteen seventy nine. Yeah that's nearly all his career. It really is yeah. there's a lot. But he's the winningest manager in cubs history. Yes franchise should say fantasist capacities white stockings. This right But he also He's a hall of famer time. Batting title is dead ball era. So we're not gonna get into you know. Obviously there's going to be all the awards at tons. Dr gold gloves stuff like that. But the fact that he didn't wanna batting title during the dead ball and he is in the hall of fame he is. That goes a long way for those guys because he is pretty hall of fame anyway right so he was brought in veterans committee. Culture club. Yes yes yes. yeah absolutely. But he had a ninety four point. Three war yep. He hit three thirty four lifetime average. That is impressive. Impressive that long. To be sustainable..

"Bryce harper. Bryce harper i think is a victim of playing one hundred ten percent every single time. The balls hit. I think he plays a hundred percent. One hundred ten percent walking up the stairs. I think i think you're right. He's got that level of intensity that so okay. Here's another thing real quick before we wrap up here in other. nba thing. I talked a lot of mba. I know i know but he so one thing. One thing that. I've heard people talk a lot about with why they don't like kids coming straight out of high school to go to the. Nba is because the schedule that an eighteen year olds shouldn't go from playing thirty games in a season. Two eighty two Because your body's not ready for that you know you gotta have a year in college to play forty forty five. Whatever it is that they play to work your way up to eighty two. And i feel like some of these guys who zip through the minors. Bryce harper was drafted. Went through the minors like seventeen. He made his debut at nine thousand. Nine hundred sixty two games at age nineteen is a lot and granted. I know some kids to play travel ball. They might play a hundred eighty. Their coach is able to schedule those games for them. They might play as many as one hundred. Eighty two hundred games a year but not at the major league level right and so i wonder if so many games so early for bryce harper on like such a young body has is starting to take its toll and i feel like maybe we see that with more guys that they start to age earlier. You know like don't get your own. Bryce harper still really good player. Yeah yeah yeah totally but terrific ball ball ballplayer. But i think. I think we're gonna see an earlier decline with him because he came up so early and i think that we see that with some guys interesting. So that's the theory. Yeah i like it a whole lot of back but anyway Like all right. Let's take a quick break when we get back we're gonna talk about our chicago cubs. Mount rushmore.

"It's it's become a stereotypical phrase turn of phrase anyway the achilles heel like it's exactly it's literally a huge deal and i mean we have to josh. Naylor's another great example in cleveland. Right like that poor guy. I don't he'll be he might never be the same. Yeah so we're talking earlier. I tell him brig about how my dad broke his ankle on his high school. That's the injury and my dad had. Oh seriously that same one. Yeah that same one and and the thing and baseball family think brig about was that i mean. It's been seventeen eighteen years since that happened. He still walks limp and granted. My dad was not. It was never lead athlete. He didn't have world class. I mean he was working with the blazers the trailblazers surgeon on his ankle so he had a world class surge and working on his foot and organize ankle and it and it never healed up right so i really hope. That's not the case with naylor. I hope he can. He can make it back by next season that that's that's a reality but at the same time it could be always in the back of his mind and it could just be one of those lingering nagging injuries for him for those of you baseball family. That don't know what we're talking about. there was a collision in the outfield on a check. Swing love all things to and The the outfit was the second baseman was second baseman the outfielder collided for a fly ball and naylor goes flying through the air lands on his lead leg. I think it was his right leg as right leg and twists over backwards in the foot stayed where it was and it was it. Was you remember the first time he saw joe thighs. Men's leg break. Oh yeah it's like that right. When when laurence taylor hit him. And you're like holy crap it was that's how it looks and it's just awful so anyway that's what that's what we're talking about but so brick sent me the clip on instagram and i text back and that's why i was never a physical therapist or i feel training trainer. Yeah 'cause right. I could not deal with that but you you wanted to be. I wanted to be saw like that. I know for me the end dead. Yeah i to deal drugs instead absolutely for those. That don't know. Brad worked in the pharmacy for man all right. Let's talk about the giants real quick. Then let's wrap it up and get into our Our our cubs not rush read more. Yeah okay giants or like the best team. In baseball right now. Me and aren't they. Who saw that coming. Not me not me no way each. I had them honestly finishing like towards the bottom of the four five four or five something like that above the rockies for what is right the ten or twelve and scored eighty three runs during that period. Holy moly has buster posey the fountain of youth or something not seriously thought that old visa catcher. I mean come on exactly we'll but he's been around forever and you think buster posey and you might as well think like i dunno..

"Like a radar. Kind of like the the statcast machine except they're smaller and they're specifically for pitchers attractors spin rate in the bullpen. So guys are getting immediate feedback on their like. Wait a minute. Let me see if i get that. Spin right up. And they can do it right there in the bullpen. Yeah without having to go into the clubhouse look at the stats for the day. So yeah that's that's really how this whole thing started for sure. But anyway we have all star game. Jerseys yeah we do. We do so so this. They're making this changes every year. We've had all star. All-star jersey's camden. I'm going to say all star game jerseys all surgeries every single year this year. They're actually going to wear them in the game. Yes and i'm really excited about that. Because i always thought the mismatch like yeah they had like the white and the gray whatever. That's fine but it just to me. It seems strange. It made sense on the nba went to eat. I guess you could say uniform uniforms. Bright red and blue. Or you know. But i always thought made sense. They have it in the nfl. Why not do it and other sports The nba and mlb is finally doing it. And before i share my thoughts break what do you think of these hats. Dom hundred percent with you man. I don't i don't like the mismatch thing it makes no sense to me. It's always felt incongruous and kind of silly and what a messy it's messy. It is messy and look everybody wears them for the frigging homerun derby right. Yeah we have the american league ones nationally and and it's like why. Why would you produce all of these. Yes just for one. Three hour event that really eight gagging wear them for anyway. And then what are you going to sell merch. That the whole point which i think it is and that's fine. Yeah i i think it is a big cash grab. That's why i didn't understand what exactly everybody's wearing up for the home run derby. Nobody's wearing game. That'd be oh never made any sense to me well. And if it's a cash grab and everybody's wearing the all-star caps because the all star cabs have been a big deal forever and that makes a lot of sense to me but Because there is an element of uniformity all star caps. But they're i think they're really needs to be like no. This is the all star jersey like you know and anyway that's how i feel. What do you think you've sounds like feel the same way i do. I feel exactly the same way. And that's one reason like back. When i was i used to be a big jersey collector as always like man those super cool but why would i buy a batting practice. Jersey right now have gotten a little bit older. It's like okay. I have a greater appreciation for batting practice jersey but that is literally a jersey that is just for practice and not it was never worn in a game and so i had no interest in buying an all star game however i do think it's funny that they've gone from the they always wore up to this point regular full button like game. Yes yes and now. They're wearing room in the game..

"For them to pick it up and figure out what kind of pitch it might be And then they hedge right. They assume at that point that milliseconds to make the decision and they hedge in decide where they're gonna swing but with the faster spin rates. There's no there's no you can't discern that right. There's no way to perceive even for a fraction of a second. What pitch might be coming. And that's why it's so hard to hit. Yep yep it's true it's rough so we we've seen that not everybody spin rate has dropped You darvish has not changed. I'm jacob degrom has not changed on. He was not necessarily a significant spin rate guy to begin with right. He's he's he's a control power thrower which is insane. The he's like throwing throwing gas like randy. Johnson and locating like greg maddox. That's what makes him so hard. That's exactly that is the perfect example. That's a great way to bring together. It's it's unfair to watch him pitch like it's like watching a video game when he throws right absolutely not. It's just so go ahead. Oh i was gonna say so. That's that's we have gone on a foreign substances. I'm really hoping that we don't have to talk about this next week. I don't want to talk about foreign substances. I don't think we'll talk about it next week. But i think the week after we will break. I doubt we will. But you know man. Can you imagine the world where do gets injected from the all star game like what happens. What the freak happens then robbed. Just take a break. Take a day off from inspecting for foreign substances. Let the guys throw the ball. Yeah jeez hey. Can i ask you. Can i ask you a question really quick. Yeah where is justin verlander in my the only one. That's like wait a minute. An every day household name and now poof gone. Yeah the only thing. I've seen of him in a while. It was today i saw that. He's the he hasn't ruled out a reunion with the tigers. Will that's the only thing i've heard from him. Pretty much this entire season. That sounds an awful lot like the kid the candy store. Who's three cents shy of the lollipop. Ones these cirque. And i have some more like that. Feels terrible to say in. Just berliners landers terrific. No disparaging him at all. But that's just that's kind of funny especially in the wake of what happened our pool. Just kinda feels more like. Hey you know. I'm still here. Yeah yeah you playing shortstop because honey on back so last thing i want to say about foreign substances this all this change really started to take place like like a tiny bit in two twenty seventeen and then twenty eight teams when everything started really picking up like we saw a little bit in twenty fifteen from like the real agreed gis. Violators people have been doing it for a long time. So so you can count this. Somebody called a goo- gate again. I dunno but you this loading up the ball. You can You can you can start at about twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and go till now i think is a pretty good timeframe fewer for those of you like me bracket things and then You can see who's spin rates have changed in that period time for if you to do some more research. That's that's what the bracket i would put it in any way we can and i would. I would contribute to change right there during that time was because that's about the time those wrap soda. Machines are being introduced. The wesley had wrap soda machines..

I feel like the mets are still in kind of a period of transition as an organization. Steve cohen took over at the start of november and he brings in sandy alderson. The team's former general manager as his team president guy who's really well respected around the game of baseball and the thought was they wanted to instill a new culture for the mets to build this new mets team. That was totally different from what they had previously under wilpon ownership and for two and a half months they nailed it. We're going to build a process that produces great teams year in and year out. You bill champions you. Don't buy them. They nailed the opening. Press conference and i plan to make the investments. We need to succeed. It started signing guys. Trevor may and james mccann. They make a huge landmark trade for francisco endure and carlos carrasco the first week of january and everything was rolling in the right direction for them until mid-january and the story about jared porter and his inappropriate text messages and texts photos with a female reporter while he was a member of the chicago cubs front office in two thousand sixteen exposed that maybe the mets could have done a better job in the vetting process. That was clearly for a lot of baseball reporters. Based on the inference took off of twitter talked and he will find out his character. That's on you. Skepticism is really exacerbated. A couple of weeks later when we learned about micky calloway's misconduct as mets manager. In two thousand eighteen. Twenty nine thousand. Nine callaway sent unsolicited messages and photos to women among other inappropriate and harassing behavior. The former mets manager aggressively pursued the women through messages and in person the team released a statement saying was hired by sandy alderson. As the general manager. Calloway had been hired by. Sandy alderson two years before so i think all of the good vibrations from the first couple months of the offseason were undercut by what happened in the last month of the offseason for mid january to the start of spring training in february

There is participation by plenty more investors, of course, including Mark Merrill, one of the two founders of Riot games, this follows two other funny raises of three and five million. So in Mark Gratz of the race, first of all, what are the plans for this capital? Yeah, thank you Mitch. So as you said we raised 9 million dollars beatcraft is one of our previous investors are still leading gaming Esports v c. B c is a new VC which comes from the sport world and a lot of touchpoints around gaming and then other investors are wpp the biggest advertising group in the world, which is also like in the existing investor and Sony Innovation fund, you know, Sony is one of the biggest gaming groups in the world and the owner of PlayStation.

As you mentioned didn't call ins the founder and CEO of super awesome that recently got acquired by epic games and the Chicago Cubs. Yeah, the baseball team go Ventures and gainesville's and illumine Adventures. So a very crowded and exciting structure of invest investors to have on board. I'm a Cardinals fan so we'll let the dog So invested things slide, I guess but grats on all the different people who came together you mentioned before we started recording you were in the position that every founder kind of hopes. They find themselves in which is we have a few people. We have a different options for Capital so we can pick the people that make the most strategic sense for us going forward. What did you find from the mobile the different investors? What were you looking for? Especially as guiding parts of the company to push it Forward? Sure. So I mean, you know what this round was not about it was not about as fast as we could have fine as it like very very fast as what it was about bringing the best structure. Number one number two, it was about, you know to maximize shareholder value. We could raise almost double the amount but we didn't want to make sense. This is the amount of cash we need for next stage Rose and then in the future if it's a year from now or two years from now we can do another round off. For that makes sense. So we were not looking at at you know, these things it was more about we have a lot of confidence in him. Advertising is going to become a major business model for game divorce across all platforms, through PC Mobile and an important ads category four Brands media agencies and the ESPYs and and the question is how fast can that happen or more sneaking about big Brands big Publishers not easy companies to convince them to do something new. So when we meet partners that can help us to make this happen faster than wages. Are we get excited one form to partner is again investment one is a strategic partnership and they can elaborate more of some of the Partnerships we have in place and some of them is people who join our team. So that was what was guiding us and looking at the different, you know buckets of we are investors came from there is some you know, some like VCS and financial institutions. There is advertising and groups. There is game. Groups and there is a sports organizations that have a lot of touch point in going to become an important overlap in my opinion the next two years. And of course there is like with the values that we want to group represents and communicate us companies gauges as the leading investor for equal opportunity and Which choice for us an important to him and announcement to basically said if the world that was how we were looking at it that's a great place to be at

And it's pretty much anything ranging from palace pros From both ear to cycling ear to winter jackets could be anything from maki North face to to the old nineteen ninety a starter jacket. Everybody has the chicago bulls one that we all grew up more so i always try to find the brand. The brand names let everyone tries to buy but off discount and then obviously compared to larger with nike and medicine and things like that. So essentially i just i go to stores deal mainly for stores buy low sell high and try to offer big products to people and it seems to save to be working where people are always gonna be wearing that either to a game and obviously you really go into games right out. During a pandemic people like wearing that stuff going on their favorite team. I started this back in two thousand seventeen of between teaching jobs. I left my previous school for a new teaching opportunity. But i was also unemployed needed cash so i kinda just sold things on the side that i wasn't using it like an old jersey so i sold an old chicago cubs jersey for seventy bucks tonight. Said well you know. Maybe maybe something to this. So i'm going to sell an i. I probably had thirty forty jerseys. I want i sold them. Georgia this cycle a mortgage. And i was like okay. Well they sold pretty quick. You know maybe maybe this is something. I can actually take off and run with and actually create business but you know between north korea and mainly will be clothes. I've been able to manage to make profit enough where i can officially retired from teaching. And make this slimane hustle. I before i left. I needed to see the numbers on my end of a meghan.

I wanted to really make make that my project per se of like you know what it's time to get up. It's time to be productive. It's time to get to the stores. The fun part about all this is that you can go on thrift and you can go and find all the stuff. The hard part is get it all up getting listed getting measured and then getting shipped out with someone. That's that's always the nasa art so just trying to balance both has been tough but again realizing that this is my full time job like there is no teaching job anymore. They're in snow.

"1918 should have been a great year for baseball. Ah, young player named Babe Ruth started the year as a pitcher but begin morphing into a home run hitting powerhouse and hear what we see is the transformation of Babe Ruth from a dominant pitcher, toe a slugger. Just beginning to happen. That's Johnny Smith, a historian at Georgia Tech, who recently co wrote a book that tells this story. It's called War Fever, Boston Baseball in America in the shadow of the Great War. In addition to World War one, there was a pandemic in 1918 the Spanish flu. So even though Babe Ruth had a breakout year, many people weren't there to see it. Baseball game attendance fell over 50% from the previous season. Produce story in Rainy. Roberts, the other co author of War Fever, says Boston became an epicenter of a second and more deadly strain of the Spanish flu just days before the Red Sox made it to the world serious against the Chicago Cubs. And so it's during the Games in Boston that the flu really expands. Of civilian population. Boston's Fenway Park could hold 35,000 people, but by Game six of the Syriza the day the Red Sox clinched the title on Lee about 15,000 people were at the stadium by the next season in 1919 the war in the pandemic. We're over, and people wondered if things would go back to normal. They did, and then some. A tidal wave of baseball fans swelled stadiums. The Claremont McKenna College economist Richard Burton says game attendance in 1919 more than doubled. Not only is the 1919 baseball attends high the 1918 by very strong margin. It is actually 37% higher than it was in 1917 the year before the pandemic. It's a good example of what economists call pent up demand when constraints prevent people from consuming something When those constraints airlifted, people ravenously consumes what had previously been out of reach. Now that the end of the pandemic is in sight, investors and executives are hoping pent up demand will revive industries that have been hammered by Cove in 19 1 place that might be predicting that the stock market I think there's evidence that stock market participants believe, but there's pent up demand that's going to be manifested in 2021 After news broke that covert vaccines work, stock prices of airlines, cruise ships and other companies surged. Bergen says there's growing evidence that pent up demand could help the economy recover this year. Look back in 1919, he says. Pent up demand didn't only boost baseball. It boosted the entire economy. Based on my observations, I think you could talk about the roaring 1919. But before you get your hopes, totally up the short boom that fall the Spanish flu Ended in a largely forgotten crash in 1920. It was only after that we got the roaring twenties with the flappers and fedoras and all. As for Babe Ruth in 1919. He broke the American League record for home runs in a single season. But then the Red Sox traded him to the Yankees. They wouldn't win another world Syriza until 2004. One season delivered a pandemic and the next the Curse of the Bambino. Ouch. Gregor Selsky NPR news.

gangs or improper it was very back nineteen three to nineteen sorry yeah I'm not pretty common in fact the Providence was a was fairly mob written thank you very thought on that rich no just probably got some monster money in your family there is you know provinces tightly knit to all of this important city and all the way back you know in the town of our Hicks who was a huge city for the city that for a moment seem like a good challenge New York and it made sense to be went there because there was another big court right and you know when you get into this because then of course when you talk about Albert Hicks even talking about gangsters talked told stories about gangsters who told her about tanks is any wonder what stories it our Hicks here right growing up and we don't know for sure but there was a lot of piracy in a lot of famous pirate in on the coast of Rhode Island and Connecticut and in the largest mass execution is United States within was in Rhode Island where I think twenty one games twenty one pirates wall hung on one day in the late seventeen early eighteen hundred to two stories that extra heard about it's very interesting you know I I I I spent time in New Jersey not long after a college and I was doing radio out there on the east coast in and I I learned from a lot of people that I worked with some of whom I think most of whom were Italian American that the if you say you've got a mob member in your family you probably don't that the only real not yeah the real mobster families don't ever talk about right you know you have a book about everybody everybody I become like you know every once in no like if I know who everybody family issues in the mob but it's like right you know everybody there's a whole conspiracy idea that Jesse James was beyond when we know that he died right and there you can meet tons of people who say that he was hiding in their barn he was in their house because he's everybody just wants to be connected to something special you know and good or bad at something special and unique in its American history but you interestingly though I mean I think the difference is maybe what the mob is there are a lot of low level mobsters there's a lot of people who are sort of barely connected they they a favor they give a favor from time to time well I got the one that you might not know which is you know it member said Lachman sure okay so sid Luckman bears quarterback and first modern quarterback in the NFL who by the way through in seven touchdowns in one game a record that's never been broken then died but never broken any figure out when he did it they didn't throw like they're thrown out no it's true right and he is he went to Columbia and he could he was a great college football player and nobody could figure out why he went to Columbia because even then it wasn't a big football school at that moment had been wasn't anymore and the room with the feeling was always because he wanted to play for that one coach's name of little little and then George Halas traded up to draft him for the bears and all the stuff but it turns out that one of the reasons is the hottest in New York because his father to my journalism true crime rates father's name Meyer walk man who is an associate of murdering and so he wasn't really a murdering but you work with them and his father had found out that his brother in law was embezzling from him and they own a trucking company and his father with one of the guys in murdering basically beat his brother in law to death and was arrested and then the police just let him go and they had a wire tap of these guys talking about how the New York police and given a hundred thousand dollars just to let him go and all this was going on in the New York papers wall said Walkman was being drafted by the bears and they never connected the two in the papers it's on the front page of the newspaper you have the story about this trial and this huge scandal which led to the you know the DA in Brooklyn having to resign and the sports pages you have all the stories about sid Luckman and I think it's a luck when father died in Sing Sing wall sid Luckman was basically winning the MVP in the NFL it is an image that is one of those and and there's I think that may also up speaking baptism you mentioned about the early seventies I think that kind of secret history of the United States I think all of the stuff about the godfather was kind of Watergate inspired in many regards because it made you think what what else don't we know right if of all this could be going on right we got mmhm let's go to Pat in San Diego on coast to coast AM for rich Cohen the last pirate of New York Pat hi yeah I just call an eight and was listening to your show and my great uncle was al Capone's lawyer and which one what was your great uncle's name his name is Joseph wrote site you can find in the internet and stuff and here that I think his partner's name was Carrillo uncle Joe learned while in prison he shot a man that robin in a card game and then Woodrow Wilson pardon uncle Joe when he was in prison for murder and he became all the presidents lawyers and stuff even the Ku Klux Klan of Indiana and they bombed his house and killed his nap my my nephew my dad's nephew and it's all on the internet lately that they would be said what's his name yeah my uncle my great uncle's name is Joseph Roach but there's a book called the real meat Capone make of free by Parrilla no first chapters about my uncle Joe that's interesting I know of the only one I knew about within the core shack thanks but yeah that fascinating I had a friend going up in the in the in the neighborhood who whose father taught al Capone's grand kids how to swim and the only reason it's interest service after he had gotten out of prison yeah any was living in Florida and he was but he kind of lost his marbles by that point but he had he would have fit for swimming yeah yeah this is so is bring a gun syphilitic and he was very nice he wasn't but he his father you sell the story about coming over to the to the backyard pool in teaching the grand kids how to swim

how you doing nice talk you guys had a fascination with the market for a long time I live in New York City from seventy five seven nine and they had people like then you're gonna pay if you can and I was wondering what can you tell me about him because I remember walking on the street couple times and seeing this older guy in a in like bathroom begging for change I wonder if you can shed any light on that that was actually him yeah well I don't know so you actually saw but he hung out in this little park that image of the beginning of the book called like finance triangle it from my memory that's okay right now but it's a little tiny truck a parking he walk around in his bathrobe and just kinda mater and the and the the thought was it you know he ran I think it was the Genovese crime family the latest on my mind that require we sure but I think you're right because all of the chain because he didn't want he didn't even want any kind of code name of himself ever on a wire tap so

"Are playing in Mesa. Arizona today against the Chicago Cubs. They beat the White Sox in Peoria yesterday. Five to four is more. Mike Slater coming up AM, seven sixty talk and breaking news next Armstrong and Getty show. The results of my weekend wearing a Trump at in public. You say Maga or magazine now Mike Slater on AM seven sixteen talking. That's funny. I will be listening to that. Let's see. This article about artificial intelligence. So we've talked before about minimum wage if minimum wage goes up. It's gonna affect every business. But particularly we focus on fast food, although it's affects a lot more people than just that. But this is easy for us to visualize. So we've talked before about kiosks, so it's fifteen fifteen dollars. Minimum wage goes is implemented across the country. I hear California's. Well, you're going to see a lot more kiosks at fast food restaurants, and you already do pretty much every fast food chain has certainly experimented if not heavily invested and you see that. Now, the next step is so artificial intelligence at the drive through. So I think when I got a couple of interesting facts here about drive-thrus seventy percent. Seventy percent of food. Yeah. Seventy percent of fast food sales are through the drive through. Did not know that. Although every time I drive by an in and out thirty cars in line. So I suppose that makes sense. So seventy five percent of fast food, so that's harder with a kiosk. So they're doing is now some so I got a couple of facts are so average. Wait time in a fast food chain. Two hundred thirty four seconds. Wendy's. Fifteen years ago, set the record one hundred sixteen seconds. And every second matters over time. More customers longer line fewer people are willing to wait a cetera et cetera. So the initial tests of this system so drive up, and it's a computer that talks to you. Hello, ma'am. I take your order. Right. Sounds like a real person and a of time and even know it's a real person or a twenty five percent reduction in order in time. So thinking about that just just the drive through where seventy percent of the food is ordered twenty five percent more efficient that is huge. I think what other technology technologies have been invented in the fast food world that increase efficiency by twenty five percent. Most technologies increase efficiency by a couple percentage here and there, but a twenty five percent reduction in order time is pretty amazing. And it's only going to get better. A couple of years ago. I don't you know voice taxed when you taxed instead of punching every letter, you press, the microphone, and you talking to your phone and voice text. I try to two or three years ago for the first time it was terrible. Right. So this is no bid. So I haven't tried it since. But now see everyone doing it. Sara talking voice texting into their phones. What's this all about? So resisted it for a while. We give it a try unbelievable. Perfect. I texted this morning. Ryder cup. Don't ask what Texas someone Ryder Cup golf tournament? Right. Are DR when I text voice x four or four F O R the number four. Of our F O U R it gets that. Right. I've watched it, and I typed in. I said the word I forget, which one maybe I meant F O U R, and I it typed out F O R. And then as I finished the rest of the sentence that went back in the proper F O, you are based on the context of the sentence. Unbelievable technology, and if out of this for awhile he's been out there. But based on two years ago, it was terrible. Now, it's here. So it's only getting better and better in the same thing with I. Now when you order your food. And of course, the the union hates it, the United food and commercial food and commercial workers union. They're against using a, of course. But they're also the ones who are for the fifteen dollars minimum wage. So they did this I suppose in the end it was inevitable. But they're the ones who definitely pushed this investment app and faster than otherwise would have. I got a. A couple of quotes. There have just been mean to share. And I haven't had a good time to do it. But let's just do it right now. Komo quotes about socialism. So share the one from John Wayne earlier, it's pretty funny. This is Arthur Surena Goff talking about run article about how socialism is the millennials religion. We're gonna talk a bit about that with global warming coming up in a little bit. Now, the left has their own end the times, but the difference between the Christian version of end times. And the left's version of end times is era Gance ability Christians believe there are there's going to be an end times. But that's based off of God. Conservatives excuse me, progressives believe in an end times. But they're the ones we are all are in control of it. And they're actually the brilliant inciteful enlightened ones who need to control. You stupid idiot who are ruining the planet ain't gonna bring on his apocalypse end times. If you don't change your ways. And if we don't force you to change your ways. So their version of that is the height of arrogance. We'll talk more about that a little later. This is Arthur says the millennials can't remember very much. And they don't learn very much easier. It's it's either being it's easy being hot for socialism, communism, when you actually have very little idea of what it is. And what it's done throughout the last twentieth century and millennials have that ignorance in spades. One third of them think that George W Bush killed more people than Stalin timeout here. Do you know how insane that thought is? The George W Bush kill people Stalin. Killed like one hundred million people. George W Bush killed more than that. At forty two percent of never even heard of now. But over seventy percent agree with Bernie Sanders. To be fair. This is not all their fault that attached itself. Again, they're boomer grandparents who have been in charge of our failing education system during this time. Combined the modern indoctrination taking place in schools and universities with the attention span killing impact of social media. And you have a barely literate cohort. That's what we're dealing with today. Ron article the other day from an SDS you professor who we've talked to before her focus is on screen times and kids kids, and then screen time and social media and stuff like that the effect that has on kids today and Sean article about. Kids all they do is watch TV and movies and things on the internet actually movies require you to long attention span. Youtube videos and don't read and how they can already see a lack of depth the lack of focus lack of substance in kids study habits. You can't get an indepth knowledge of anything from tweets. You can't improve your critical thinking skills from Facebook status updates. You can't get a deep dive. Into anything of substance. Really on the internet at all. But kids brains not wired to be able to focus on anything for more than literally seconds or less than a second. This from the article things came very easily to them kids when they were growing up millennials when that suddenly stops. When the reality finally intrudes, they get angry frustrated lost the world is deeply unfair and is conspiring against them. They're narcissistic self possessed self obsessed. They expect instant rewards an instant gratification. Haven't been told their whole lives how special they are. They tend to be oversensitive and find it difficult to cope with criticism or obstacles. They're lazy flighty and easily distracted. So what does this mean? What does it who cares? Socialism. As the response of a spoiled child. When faced with the world that does not genuflect to its every wish the way their parents did. If you are all of these things if you expect instant reward, instant gratification. If you're over the sensitive. If you believe the world is unfair and conspiring against you. Sticking it to the rich is your answer. Socialist is your answer because everything seems fair. Everything's pitched as fair and equal. I never showed this before one of my frustrations is when people say, oh, socialism sounds good on paper. But it never works in real life. No, no, doesn't even sound good. Just put what sounds good about it? The part that you don't have to work hard the part that there's. Right. The weather everyone, no matter how little one other another person. Does everyone still gets the same amount of money or whatever? I don't even the part where if you do want to strive your punish what sounds good about any of that. I don't even know what the paper part sounds good. If you're super lazy. Maybe it sounds good. Anyone else? I don't even know. What sounds good about it? And it's even worse in real life. I think it sounds terrible on paper and its murderous in real life. Around Twitter this morning that is going to be president one day. I believe that I'm willing to take all political prediction capital that ever earned after predicting Trump will win. I will put it all on AFC being president one day. I half joke about the rock being president one day. I do think there's a possibility of that happening of half joking on that. But not really that's more of just a assessment on the current affairs of politics and campaigning and the show of it all and a versus substance sort of more my point with that. But I actually believe AFC will be president wasn't it. Actually wanted to prove that a little later but women to that next because that's kind of a bulk a lot of people wrote back laughing at me that suggestion. Laugh at your own peril. Don't laugh at me. I'm not a fan. You'll have him if you want. I don't care, but. I mean, just remember that in six years or eight years or twelve years you can't run for another six years at least because she's only twenty nine but got to be thirty five. But. I'm pretty confident lavon. I wanted to happen. Saginaw you tell people like, oh, no, no. I don't wanna happen. But it will. Approve that next. I'm gonna prove it next with a clip from nineteen fifty four. So if you're laughing at me, if you think I'm wrong, just give me one chance to prove it. I'll do that next. And then you can ignore that prediction forever. One eight hundred seven sixty K F M B, Jim Sharpe..
