"Champion the NHL and at the last second I realized, oh no, he's gonna hit me. And he hit me right in the sternum and I tried to jump up out of the way at the last second because I realized he was going to hit me and I couldn't pivot around him and the Internet stuff. As a media member. Eddie got me like he got me. I went. I went about a spark, your old buddy Steve McIntyre hit crystal Tang in Pittsburgh like this once, okay? In the 2008, 2009 season, Goddard busted his orbital bone earlier in the game and McIntyre didn't realize he was hurt, went back on the ice and he sent a Tang. I kid you not ten to 12 feet in the air on a hit after lathe and I was the same thing and I got up and I knew George wasn't going to fight me. So I skated over and I stuck him as hard as I could as my helmets busted. I only got one glove on and bleeding from the nose from the three point landing I did. And I got up and I grabbed my stick and I just drilled them as hard as he was trying not to laugh, right? But you know, just showed I know how Jeff Cowen felt because Jeff Cowen got hit at once by George and lived to tell about it because when George if you ever got mad, he could hurt his, you know. As for Steve McIntyre, as a recall, you know, you guys had an interesting relationship. He was a guy that I think he did not chase you around once in the minor. Oh, yeah. Oklahoma City at 11 a.m. for a fucking. That was your first game when he got sent down, right? The afternoon special? No, it wasn't my first game. We went back there. We had the game with the SpongeBob, you know, like all the middle school and elementary schools go at 11 a.m.. 14. I was just I think I made one of them singing one night at karaoke. I forget what we were. That burger place. And honestly, I didn't think anything of it, but then somebody told me this guy wants to murder you. So I actually still hopefully I don't see him someday. I don't know if I love Jason. I'm gonna give him a big hug though at this point. I want George rock used to have karaoke contests at his house as well. So I believe it or not, I won one of them. I could see you singing a little rocket man. But it was, it was Elton, actually. I just felt you were an Elton John guy soft. You gotta tell us what's on. The lady iana version. And it was one of those ones where everybody's making fun of the media jackass, right? Like, hey, you know there's like 45 people there. And we got three words in and everybody stopped chirping. I just focused on one of those rare occasions, the song worked for me. You know, I was an emotional thing because I was a big fan of The Crown. I'm kidding. But no, I pulled it off and George was like a shock and the irony is George is quite possibly the worst singer you've ever heard. Like he did a version of vanilla ice size baby. It might be the most wretched thing you've ever heard in your life. So, but a good version of that song. You seem to have a soft spot for the tough guys. You guys got probably nurse and cassian who can handle their own. You mentioned mix in a little bit more meat and potatoes on the bottom 6. Who would you like from around the league? I would mention a Vander Kane, but that looks like it's not gonna happen. Well, I mean, if thin is a Vander can do it when he wants to do it. The problem with nurse is too good. Like he's too good of a player to have like I love Larry Robinson as a kid, partially because he beat the crap out of Dave Schultz and I couldn't stand the flyers. So, I mean, memorable fight on a when CBS used to have Sunday afternoon games, 73 74 season love Larry. And Darnell nurse is becoming that important in that type of player. You can't have a guy like that do it. In terms of calcium, you know, he's got to fight on his terms. Really, he should be a 13 minute a game guy. I think the orders need a guy that's sick, especially given that they've got Connor and Leon. They can play. They can rotate 11 forwards and have a 12 forward play four to 6 minutes a game just to keep opposition like Calgary's got a tough team. Dogger has done a real tough team. Like they got good Branson. They got zadorov, who's willing. He's huge. And then Richie can do it. And then I got a luch. Like, that's not to mention, who has been fighting for the last couple of seasons. So I'd like, you know, I'd like to get his Ross Johnson out of the islanders. I mean, he gave Leon pretty sizable face wash in the game and I'm thinking Evans got nobody to answer that cassian was in COVID protocol at that time. They need a guy that can do a bit a lot and there are fewer and fewer guys like that other major junior Paul as you know. Like now you might have two guys in every team that'll fight. Yeah. I was thinking about asking you today and I love that Delorean and he's a new FA and he's a UFA and I just like, I agree with you. They need something else, something that to take the focus away from the casting and the nurse, but yet when those guys need to, it's like they can come in after, but it's not their main focus. I think it's so valuable and then you see with revo. Some people on social media were laughing about the revo move this summer. It has made that lineup so much bigger and that team so much better in my opinion and that was one thing that they addressed. And I think they're laughing right now. Well, they put sonority on waivers, and if it was me, I don't know if I would have claimed them because he's got a second year, right? At 900 K, but if I'm the audience, I'm finding a way to make a deal. Just unfortunately for Jared, he's not quite as tough as his dad. This is back to bob probert. His dad, when he came up with the rangers in the 86 87 season, he ate like four provis best shots. His dad was big time tough. When I played against him as a kid, nobody would even dump the puck in his corner. He was huge at 12. I was 5 ten at 12. His dad was like 6 foot three at 12. And no one went near him. They should sign you. I'll tell you. If somebody face washed Connor, staff would spear him right in the mouth. Different era, different generation. I wasn't that tough. I don't even think I tied one. Well, staff, thank you so much. It's really good catching up with you. All informed fall on Twitter. Check them out at Edmonton, bob stoffer. We appreciate you coming on and go Euler's. I'm on the train here. I need to run this year. We're going to have to think about maybe jump into another fandom. They better give you a raise for the double wrister you just gave them on our show here. You find all your polish and a turd right now. That might be one perspective and some would say I've become very good at that over the years. But I'll leave you with this when you guys are stuck and can't get somebody better.

"All right, we couldn't see it all that time, right? I would say how we never got to really see Gretzky play down here. No states on this was the playoffs. Right. The one visit our year he made, you know? And we'd get it one night a week in French on Wednesday. And of course, we didn't really all understand French. We had to put the radio beside the television. On the Wednesday nights and Saturday nights was Hawking on camp. So we'd watch that and we all sit on my grandmother's bed and watch hockey. What it was. So I remember as my brother was a big hockey fan and my brother had a magazine and it was all tough guys. It was called tough guys. And it was all like, they ranked every tough guy punching power, Martin is like, it was hilarious. What they ranked everybody with. And all I remember is it was beside the bathroom. So when I went to the bathroom, like before we read before we were on a swipe bird or whatever it is now, it was tough guy magazine. Two years later, I'm playing against some of these guys. And you're doing warmup and it's like, oh shit. I know it is punching power. Yeah. That's too great. Or those guys. No, no, those guys. And you're like, you can't, you're just what 6 three of his? And he's got the nickname grim Reaper. When you have a nickname nickname, you're dead. And when I start off crew, yeah. When they and when he's different and they are at the NHL the NHL and the American Hockey League, like Frankie the animal bye Lois, if you have a nickname in the American Hockey League and you don't even have to do warmup and you're playing against this guy, it's like you're dead. Just don't go near him. Some of these guys, so that's my first few games pro, it's like, oh my God, there's two grimson. There's geologic. They're sandy McCarthy. There's George rock. It was like shit your parents, every warm up. I want to ask about go and pro at the ranges. It said you signed in November of 97. How did that all transpire? Where will you plan? Did you go through training camp like take us with that process? So playing junior my last year junior defenseman tail end of that second year at 20 years old, young kidding Daniel corso on our team and he was a second round draft pick by the St. Louis blues. And I played against him in the minors. Would he have been with Philly? No, he would have been with Worcester. What's your first year? You know what, maybe by then we could have moved. He could have moved, because you started off. Remember his name? Yeah, 'cause we're gonna go on you guys in freaking Wilkes Barry Scranton in a few minutes. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I was on the phantoms. The team was jacked. We played you guys beat us in the playoffs. I had to cover that crisp beach. He was like throwing me around with one hand that I thought. Yeah. Max, I hate you. That's a great buddy. Actually, max's assistant coach now in San Diego. San Diego. Is he? Yeah. Yeah. He loves it. Yeah, good man. What a run he had. I still love that he got his thousandth game pro in Russia and they did a big thing for him. It's off subject, but we're all over. We're all over the world. We're talking about how it went. So when you get signed, yeah. Yeah, so I end up I'm playing junior. I have a couple pretty good years in junior. And my second, the tail end of my second year, we have this young kid Danny corso and he's we're not a good team and they're picking on them. So they decide to put me with him because as a defenseman, I was like a halfback. And I was never really back. So I was kind of like a rover. So they decided to never run our zone anyways. Let's just put them forward. So I played with this kid, Danny corso, and after a few games, the coaches realized that PG can't play with this guy. This guy's way too good. But they asked me at that time do you want to still play forward? Because like I was like a third defenseman on the ice. So they made me a shutdown center. And I played against every other team's top line. And it went well. And I put my right winger was my brother. It was so cool, so awesome. Yeah, it was for my parents, my uncle had a shirt he'd come to the games and it had my brother's number and my number in stock. It was so cool. And the people back then in victoriaville really embraced us. It was just a great experience. Great time. And they're like, the two hardworking Anglo is on the ice. The puck wasn't our friend, but they just appreciated the effort. So I get this tail end of that year. I'm not drafted. I get an invitation to the rangers camp as a forward. And I go to the rangers camp and pretty funny, because I said, I only play one way and you guys went to your first camps. You don't know what it's like, right? No clue. You play your one way and expecting that's the right way. And then the veterans are like kid. Slow down a little. That's not your game here, buddy. Yeah, yeah. Don't worry. Don't worry. Just sit over there..

"How're things stevie Pretty good. I'm just starting to get my head around. You broke this story to me anyway. I don't think you broken. But i've been thinking more and more about george rock wanting to fight mike tyson and i that you know it's brilliant marketing idea. Good good little distraction for everyone under you. Know there's no sports were all been so much different Like everything has been single. I get it okay. I get it not a bad idea. Okay not about. Timing's perfect to do that. And i started thinking. Maybe laura may have a chance and then i completely got my mind back if you make mike tyson. Where skates than i'd give. George larrocha great chance. But it's not going to be on skates. and thus he's not got any chance whatsoever. Unless they equipped george laura with some kind of weapon. I'll tell you what. Even if mike tyson was on skates. It's it's i like. I say great idea just like you and i were talking yesterday about about the you know these these exhibition battles right and you know brooke henderson gonna play tom. Watson or i don't know a a bunch of other stuff right it's intriguing. It's totally intriguing. You always hear a lot of people say steve. You know with the senior golf tour for example or or a master's level in another sports. I never i never played it professionally in the majors. But i think i could do okay on the senior tour. Okay so what. What is completely ridiculous about. The boxing thing is so jordan raccoon. Never box maybe. I don't know maybe did as a kid or something. I don't know right but obviously it wasn't as career who's thinking okay. I could never beat mike tyson. When i was twenty five. Okay or or when mike was in his prime. There's not a chance okay. World champion not a chance. But now i can you what do you think what did you become an excellent boxer in your forties or something you know. Just it's crazy. It's it's absolutely crazy. And you pointed out the tyson's absolutely ripped looks like he was in a younger youth prime yell and not just in lots of guys are you know ripped in their forties and everything and even into their fifties but he was ripped and watching him. Hit the speed bag and the heavy bag like his ferocity of punching is like. Oh my god good so yeah. Good luck with that george. Laura good luck. We talked about that a couple of episodes going We'll see how how he makes out in fact goes on mean he's only saying seventy five percent chance that it's happening but he says the wheels are in motion The other thing. I wanted to talk about just in the chitchat. Portion of the show was a very troubling food. Recall warning not throughout canada. On that is yeah miss. Vicki's kettle chips recalled due to the possible presence of pieces of glass. I wondered about that. Yeah i've i've chewed on those before going these things these things are glass. they're awful. The fantastic assaulting misfit her one of my favorites chicks devi delilah round in egypt's you know like sitting on the couch side by. She'd bust. Open the bag chips. All right and i'd be so we're watching. Tv and you just sort of blindly reach into the bank right steve. You're sharing the bag of chips and you know you grab a chip so anyway opens the bag and i'm sitting there. Not having any sort of ten minutes goes by him. Listen to her crunch away on on these on these chips potato chips. I put my hand in the bag. And all night. I pull one out in a i go to bite into it and it's all soggy out cross. Yuck what's going on there. She starts a laugher head off. Steve her little play. Her little practical joker little prank is taking taking chips. Licking them steve. And then putting them back in the bag. That's a terrible trick. Especially if these days you know yeah yeah not so good these days or the other the other one. I really love you. Because i used to pull this see no eta mommy's veggie. They're the pots enemies. There's always a big dish of them in the middle of the table there like an appetizer. And then there's an empty ball where you throw the empty pods. Will i would. I would mix that up steve while you weren't looking i put the put the the houston and you'd because you're just reaching it without looking and i'd switch them on you and then it ended up biting into one that i just had in my mouth was willing around thirty seconds says again. Your lady were well-suited. Yup she the one st for. We're talking having dinner one of our first date. She parted her hair with her fork. Think i've told you. I remember you telling me that. That's that one so chip maker that's grounds for immediate termination of the relations. Cair parter chip liquor sprint from the home. Like not like we'll talk later about this and then break up no immediately in the middle of dinner on fork in the hair. And you're just it's over right now. And i don't even have to explain it. I can just leave and ever explain myself. Told her probably best you do. Though threw up in my mouth a little. She's would have been a little different like part of the fork and then put the fork down and grab a fresh fork but not the of the fork and then yes. No back into the lasagna. Now it's funny. How hair really just so gross like there's some rules you know you say at subway or something you've got a nice meatball sub and then saying okay ball. There's a big long hair there. Oh like why is that so unappetizing a piece a hair as opposed to all the other gross things that human bodies potentially capable of. Well i never know. I don't know it ruins the meatball. It's okay on the button if it's on the bun part you about it's on the meatball. That's that's terrible. All right back to the miss vicki's thing so again the big food recall warning and So they're recalling. Miss vicki's Kettle chips sea salt and malt vinegar. Baby i could eat about fifteen bags of those right now. In fact in fact. I'm willing to take a gamble even though there's might be glass in there i'm willing to do it. That's how much. I love these freaking things. I was going to. What point. are you going to be worried about.

"Laura be considered among the greatest. Nhl tough guys of all time. Certainly of his generation like the same play right here in edmonton showroom. I would say so in fact when he came into the league. I think it was gone all lookout. Look here here's all your other tough guys. You better raise an eyebrow here because here comes this guy from montreal rings. French absolutely he was guys are frightened of russ talked yesterday about l. mcinnis there's there's a great segment we do about the olympic team in two thousand and two and russ was part of the sorta selection committee but the coaches and stuff. And then i said who's on that team. You know players. Did you help players. And he brought up al macinnis. Did this guy rusty really have the hardest shot when he came into the league. Guys really nervous about blocking. I mean how much harder can it be then other. Nhl defense he said goalies. Were afraid to get that thing you know and so i look at that iraq. That's when this guy came in right guys we're going okay. Yeah this is not good. This is not good. You know if you're a marty mcsorley or never say they were frightened or or a pro. I don't know if he was playing or these other guys are are kordic. Probably missed he. Probably mistpro a little bit but You know and i'm sure there were was the odd fight that ended up losing. Somebody gets the jump on him or something like that but man. I don't remember him. Losing too many fights no and so he's big big guy six foot three big fella but now in retirement well into retirement now. He's decided that he's going to try. And get mike tyson and and fight him. Tyson is into his fifties now so he's a bit older but and he's by the way three weeks away from his first fight in fifteen years is gonna take on roy jones junior in an eight round exhibition no. I don't know what kind of an exhibition is like. You're either fighting or you're not exhibition. I guess but anyway According to law rock it's a seventy five percent chance that the deal to fight mike. Tyson is going to happen that the deal is done. Seventy five percent. Anyway and i don't know. Is that something. You'd want to see. Because i think tyson would kill the rock well soda. Why know how does this whole idea come about these exhibition games of washed up athletes to. Let's get them together. Okay done these guys are done and so we're going to put the two of them together to fight. It's kind of a little spin off of you know like battle of the blades right. We're going to get hockey players To skate with these women in the thing. That's a stupid idea. And the and yet it's got a big big viewership. Always the celebrity factor. You got two big names. The concept is interesting. It's got that hybrid feel to it. Different sports crossing over the they're both at the end of the day into combat. But i think it's a pipe dream. I mean george lorok. Ah very good fighter among hockey players. One of the best right but a great fighter among great fighters like legit guys like did that. Nothing else mike tyson right. And you've never fought before the guy's never been in a pro boxing match before and you gotta step in there with mike tyson. I don't know if you've seen tyson in preparation for this fight with roy jones junior. No he still looks like a total bad ass like the hand speed on that guy watching him punch. He is absolutely still ferocious. I want no part of mike tyson. If i'm george rock well i agree i. I watch youtube videos or.

Scary things is straight ahead. But first, let's go to the real estate today newsroom with Bill Thompson HIBEL Hi, Steven. Housing starts were up 1.9% in September, the government says now that may be slightly below what Wall Street was expecting, But analysts are still encouraged. Building permits were up over 5%. Charlie Doherty, an economist with Wells Fargo, who covers Housing, told Yahoo Finance. If the outlook is still very bright, we still have really low mortgage rates. We have this shift towards for space being needed. And then we also have this ready and waiting wave of first time home buyers. Coming into the market, so that's gonna keep housing starts float over the next few years. Meanwhile, builder confidence has hit another new record. The National Association of Homebuilders. Wells Fargo Housing Market Index for October came in at a reading of 85 up two points from the records at the previous month, and a number of her 50 is considered positive. And the H B C E O. Jerry Howard, also speaking on Yahoo Finance, said the builders right now are riding a wave of social change in the wake of the pandemic of civil unrest. The talk ofthe urban areas increasing taxes, the notion of owning a home in the suburbs. The excerpts and even in rural areas is really taking off with the American consumer now one of the strongest headwinds that builders have been facing all years the skyrocketing price of lumber, But now there are indications the prices of Coming back down from April to September. Lumber prices rose 170%, adding some $16,000 to the price of a new home. But now thanks to increased timber production, the website trading economics dot com reports that in some cases, prices have come down as much as 45% from their September. Hi While we're speaking of new records being set look at mortgage rates, which recently fell to another new record low, according to Freddie Mac. A 30 year fixed rate dipped to an average 2.81%. It was the 10th record set this year. The previous mark of 2.86% was set in mid September. But not every would be home buyer can take advantage of those incredibly low rates, says realtor dot com senior economist George Rock to affordability and tightening credit are weighing on borrowers. Mortgage applications decline. With both purchases and refinances experiencing setback, experts say it's those low mortgage rates that are helping drive home prices higher and higher. Coming up in half an hour. Buyer demand is insane, says one expert. So how long will it last? Steven back to you? Thanks, Bill. And we have the latest information on contract signings for you today and a somewhat surprising result because the National Association of Realtors reports that in September pending home sales declined slightly 2.2% compared to August. But compared to one year ago pending home sales shot up 20%. No, As you know, pending home sales represent home purchase contracts that have been signed but which have not yet gone to closing. Joining us now with the latest pending home sales report is Lawrence June, the chief economist at the National Association of Realtors. Oars, Lawrence, Welcome to real estate today. Hello, Stephen. Thanks for having me on the show. We are so glad you could join us. So Lawrence, a slight Rick Klein month over month in pending home sales. What's going on with that? Not a concern at all. Considering that choir month he was an all time high. So a slight step back stealing, implying a very strong condition. We know that market is short ofthe inventory, with many realtors indicating that it's their head 20% more inventory or even 30% more inventory. Additional amount home cells can be conducted. Right now. The shortage of inventory, maybe hampering some increases and pending contracts. I see. And of course, I would imagine that this slight decline. Does not reflect any change in demand because buyers want to get AH, house. It's just as you said, inventory the competition in the marketplace. And maybe even rising prices, you know, just consider the Sept of 29 10 when the unemployment rate wass Christian generational, low figures, home shows at solid conditions, and if someone had mentioned that in 2021 20% higher, everyone was so wow, that is amazing my high number and that's what we have. So these are very solid numbers, but he could even be higher. If we had more inventory. I see And let's highlight what you just said Lawrence. Year over year pending home sales were up 20%. That is huge. You know the region, saying 28% game the lit wass 18% South 20% West 19. So not much difference other than the Northeast area, sewing a rebound after being suppressed, and it could be due to the fact that many people indeed Manhattan religion they Howard didn't song the demand for homes in Connecticut very strong in northern New Jersey, very strong or even out of Pennsylvania. Very strong, So I think you know, T's region, It seems some migration off people who believe they can work from home. And don't have to come to Manhattan on every single day. So that is being vested in the Northeast region. That's interesting, and that also is probably happening and other big cities across America. Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Ella And many people there realized they could now work from home so they are going farther and farther out. The interesting part is that if one looks at the home prices and downtown areas in the city convention Is actually rising. What's happening is that suburban homes are rising even faster, so that the man is clearly a tilted more strongly. Who's the suburbs every year or more.

"Sound like it meant something that speech by Joe Biden was wonderful. It was the greatest speech she's ever made in his career. But it probably was because it doesn't take much for Joe Biden to make a crappy speech, even if it makes any sense or it's not a lie. So that might have been a good speech. I'm sure there was some kind of gimmickry. I'll say it now. I believe that speech was pre taped and patched together. Paste and patch whatever you wanna call, and he had his little ear thing and is here. Joel. Stay away, Joe. Stay awakes Course Joe, and you know they're trying to make something of that. But it's all about the issues and they couldn't talk much people are complaining. And the critics are saying We didn't talk much about issues. But what are they going to do? We're gonna highlight people like the mayor of Seattle or the mayor of New York for the mayor of Portland. And talk about how they're tough on crime and law and order in their story. Cities were being burned to the ground by anti find black lives matter, and they're destroying their police department. You know, I mean, is that what they're going to talk about? Because that is That is what the Democrat Socialist Radical Party is all about, Right? You know, it is so they can talk about Public safety and law and order. Why not? Because they don't support it? They are criminal advocates. Look at Maryland, Moses be Look at the Attorney general of New York State who wants to go after The National Rifle Association. Look at the guy over there in Seattle, the state's attorney, all of these people supported by George Rock sorrows their campaigns paid for by George Soros. The guy in Seattle the minute they lock up people for a lot of, you know, including and Rioting. They get right back out. There's no bail. Same thing in Portland, that state's attorney, I think George Soros I read somewhere elected 23 States attorneys. District Attorney's Whatever you wanna call him, you know, like Maryland, Moses for various cities and counties across the nation. They're all anti Law and order. They supporting Antifa. Train and its beginning work in Portland, Oregon. They ain't dumb, Are they? I mean, that's if I was Auntie for that's where I'd go because the mayor's assistant, and I don't mean gay. He's just weak. And he's an anti cop. So that's that's where I would start right. Yeah, So they're not that dumb. So they trained there for years. And now every day they're trying to burn the police stations down. Now they're actually going in the neighborhoods and harassing people. That's where they intend to go on what they intend to do. Anyway. That's what it's all about. So Biden can't talk about issues. You take the issue of taxes. President Trump cut taxes right, he said. He's going to cut them again. And right now he's removed temporarily. The payroll tax. What did Joe Biden Fine. He's a tax aholic, he said. I'm going to raise five taxes. That reminds me a whole Walter Mondale when he was running against Ronald Reagan, and he said, I'm going to raise your taxes. I don't know what brilliant strategist advising President Mondale to do that. But you got to remember the radical Democrats living an alternative universe. And they think that's important. Go out there and be honest. Tell them you're going to tax them to death. You know you are. We are when we believe in taxing people to death. Let's just go do it. Tell him about it. That's what they think. That's how they think it's really scary stuff, isn't it? All right. We're gonna take some calls, and then we're going to ask you a question. I'm gonna go into the future. We're going to ask you for your ability to predict the future. Okay? Everybody has an idea. We're going to ask you what Your idea is. In the future. If Biden wins. What will happen? To the people of the United States. I mean, we had Barack Obama for eight years and he created he initiated he generated the tea party movement. Now buy and the radical left and Bernie is running the show. We know Bernie and his people are running the show. If they take over and start doing all this crazy stuff. How will the American people react? What do you think? OK, let's talk with Jimmy. Get the morning started. Jimmy. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Good. Great. I want to congratulate you on your run. You should have one. And everything you said was gonna happen happened Did. It's just getting started would be in school right now.

And you wouldn't have had fireworks going off for a month. That's sweet. That's our sign of squeegee boys that isthe It's terrible, really ridiculous. People lost American character.

"When you and I spoke on the phone a couple of weeks back I told you that my first PROTEC- was the Rakai the the less George Rock I I was a huge fan and am a huge fan of that of his designed, but kind of knew it was always sort of out of reach, and then you made this beautiful automatic, and and had the the reputation for making high fidelity and collaboration knives, and just incredible out the side, so I got it and I love it so. So thank you for making something that I loved and bring it into reach and creating a whole new genre of knife that I love Oh. You're very welcome, yeah, the less George designs, he's been a good friend and a great collaboration partner, and the same sort of thing I really love his designs, and he's such a neat guy We're really proud to work with him. And he came out with the SBA are recently which is a kind of a smaller version of that same knife and and is Sp.. Short bladed Rakai Ackley and what a hit that will guy has been It's such a nice size. It's small, but it's still stout like the list George designs tend to be and so it's like the best little big knife we ever. And you make a lot of little big knives and I think that might be a result of of being in California, but we'll get to that in a second I wanna I wanNA find out about how pro-tech came to being I. I understand from an interview. I saw you grew up in a knife shop. Is that right? And how did this corrected this evolve? Yes Oh, my dad and my uncle owned a retail. Store Ross cutlery right in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. And when my dad was getting out of the service during Vietnam Union, brother were looking for a business that they could work together and the met this Guy Mr Ross. who had a sharpening service at? They didn't sell anything in the store at the time of sharpening and. They broker this deal to buy the business from him, and over the years grew. It's and grew it, and just built it into one of the biggest and most well-stocked cut restores anywhere in the US, and I grew up in there. You know I grew up at you. As soon as I was tall enough to reach the counter, I was selling knives down at the store and I remember vividly being they're making little price tags and working with my dad, and there was just it was. It was really great. You know kind of unusual and conversation. People talk about what their dad did for a living and I was always the only one whose dad ran a knife shot. For sure the luckiest one in the class never sure so what were the kind of knives? You were selling back then in in that store so a little bit of everything, my Dad's store, my Dad Mongols. Store had kind of focused on almost utilitarian stuff. They do a Lotta service work so butchers. Hair size people that use knives. It tools every day. That needs service for them. They would come in their for sharpening. Even, real specialty items like straight razors and things and. The service is real heavy for the retail store. And they had all manner of knives in there a little bit of everything. My Dad loved inventory. You know kind of an old school approach to it. You know like you can't sell it if you don't have it. My Dad would say and so boy. Did they have it down to the store he had. A number of Collections of things in the front window that were bolted on display, only not for sale, and there was one area there. That was all automatic knives vintage American vintage Italian. You that kind of stuff and I guess growing up being told over and over again that I couldn't touch him I couldn't have them and whatever it's like the circle of life, and so all these years later you know. Know Ross Cutlery. Even though it's changed hands now my cousin it. They're a customer of ours and they by the pro tech knives and sell them at Ross Cutlery, so it's the circle of life for sure on that took so did your father and uncle make knives or have an inkling to go that route, not at all the bought and sold and serviced. You know countless knives over the. When my dad was still alive with the ran the store together, I wanNA save fifty two years something like that incredible longevity and. Moved several times every time into a bigger location so nominal success you know for a retail store at, but never any knife making to speak of but heavy on the service side lots I've sold no no knife making so you know the sort of level of enthusiasm and the knife world these days you helped build that enthusiasm through your protect brand, but was it like. Like that back in the day where people were, what was your dad knife nut was your was your uncle like always getting the new thing and loving, or was it a different sort of attitude than no, they were, and and actually you know like my. My Dad was involved in a number of things with different cutlery companies over the years helping them expand their brands especially boker. And he always loved the product beyond that it was his work he had a genuine enthusiasm for the knives and the new stuff that was coming in and. You definitely. Beyond, just buying and selling stuff you know. He was ahead of his time kind of a nice nut for sure. So you grow up working in the store Ross Cutlery and I I'm presuming that you kind of grew up there as you said and went into your teen years. There so. How did it happen that you I mean? How did it happen that you started making them yourself? I I. After College I ended up. As a teacher for a short time, I, actually taught middle school, sixth, seventh and eighth grade for a few years, and while I was teaching are starting to buy my first house and get. My life started and I was worked at the time living in Colorado and the teacher pay was not so hot, and so on the weekends I started doing knife shows I started doing gun shows. Knife shows buying selling brands. I was familiar with you. Know from my Dad's store, so bench made saw, Cold Steel Spider Co, you name it and pretty quickly that evolved into also some customize and I really enjoy buying and selling those and getting to know the makers and. I had a pretty good side business going and eventually that kind of took over, and so this is like you mid-nineties, and the thing that I always sell out of the first partly because I enjoyed them so much, it's easy to sell what you like and I loved the automatic knives, and so at the time like in the mid nineties. There just weren't that many. That bench made had a few great models. The white wolves knives some stuff from the Valetyn. Family like there was a few things out there, but there wasn't much, and I realized how much I like them and other Nice. Nuts like me like them, and so that's kind of when it got the idea that maybe I should try to make my own I think in the in the mid nineties. That's kind of when I When I got my first large folding cold steel, and I started to become aware of some of the brands I couldn't afford it at the time to me. That's when the real a robust builds started happening in a real eye towards tactical tactical knives started happening, so I think the idea of taking the idea of a an. An automatic knife, but building it to be battle-ready quote, unquote is a great idea. I grew up a you know in the eighties I. I got a bunch of switchblades and out the front automatics from Europe that were you know tourist pieces and fun to play with, but obviously we're not good knives, and so to take the fascination, or the you know that the the fascination of having an automatic knife, but actually making it a working tool, great and with.

"Officials say they will restrict entry for immigrants from Kerr's expand Myanmar Eritrea Nigeria Sudan and Tanzania this is not a total travel ban similar to the president's earlier order that angered Muslims the trump administration saying those countries don't need security standards it is part of the president's push to further restrict legal immigration I want to illustrate a point based upon some horse crap narratives that are occasionally advance some along the lines of what you might have just heard that angered Muslims say it's an ubiquitously true that the restrictions that president trump offered up that world to get in the courts they were found to be constitutional by the way is that you pick what is a true that it angered Muslims yet it's advances that that's factoring just as we were conditioned through our news media that any time you had the president talking about the wall talking about you know making sure that we have legal immigration systems in this country and we are keeping those who are seeking to abuse our system from doing so this somehow or another that was the anti a Hispanic position when in fact we found out point right here in Florida sixty four percent of the legal legal immigrants I agree with the president's policy two sides the stories one set of facts in on this particular note we got a crackdown underway against sanctuary cities sanctuary governments across our state announced this week by the Attorney General bill Barr on back of president trump's call for additional action to be taken back presents meeting with a governor Cuomo New York today here to talk about our immigration policy is an expert and also the author of the upcoming book pro American immigration common ground in our immigration strategy doctor fraud and thank you so much George for taking the time with us tell us a little bit about your thoughts regarding the administration's policy against century status and perhaps even some of what we're seeing play out right now thanks for having me Brian you know I agree with what you're saying the the sanctuary cities issue is a serious issue between the local government and the federal government and what we're seeing play out is shelters to illegal immigrants who are already arrested for other crimes this is not about people who are there will be a productive members of society they're allowing criminals to escape federal law enforcement and what's really brought this to the fore has been the alleged rape and murder of a ninety two year old woman by illegal immigrants in New York and I say alleged because he he pleaded not guilty yesterday is it is about racing and what's even more outrageous yeah isn't it just amazing what what you just said there hello abused our system as you had somebody who was already lacking legal status in this country known to the criminal justice system in New York ice issued a detainer request the neat New York City because of New York City sanctuary policy said no we're not going to comply with it so they released the guy who is already in the criminal justice system who was here illegally in the first place and then he goes out he kills a ninety two year old woman after raping hit her and he still is getting to make use of our legal system isn't that in and of itself an illustration of how absurd the situation's become it is it is absolutely outrageous and I should say that in addition to my being a former US demo diplomatic and consular officer I am also an immigrant to America I immigrated years ago with my family and as an immigrant myself I find it outrageous that this would be the policy of our local governments how much policy do you think that's been crafted at local government levels of state government levels sometimes by those in Congress that are advocating for a bit essentially open borders policies how much of this do you think is actually advanced by the news media versus what most people really want in their communities well look I think that there has been progress made through this administration on immigration let me give you one example the public chargeable to public charge will that's going to come into effect on February twenty fourth the news media has been pushing that this is you know a weapon used by the administration that they're breaking apart families went in in in fact what's happening is that the administration is putting in rule that support laws that already exists and this is important we need consistent rules that consistently uphold our loss when you take a look at what we're doing at the southern border for all of your expert point of view do you think it's an effective strategy the southern border is certainly a tough situation and I have a lot of respect for the men and women who are doing a very difficult job in doing it honorably I think that the that the rate that that the approach has been effective and we see it on the numbers there's been a decrease in illegal crossings we also see it in the relationship the folks that I'm that I spoke with tell me that the relationship between the US and their Mexican counterparts across the border as as as really taken in stride the Mexican government is helping with the illegal crossings and they're really doing their part now or or at least starting to do their part to help us in that in that area we're speaking with doctor George frog his website George rock dot com and you mentioned you know the effectiveness of the policy what we are still seeing elevated levels we have seen many activist groups trying to demoralize the detention facilities cell as well in fact the homes that this building in particular so politicized that it actually was shut down well what is the truth versus reality of the way that people are being processed in our system well let me give you an example just last week there was a report that I use is now fingerprinting immigrants as young as fourteen years old in these facilities my initial reaction when I saw this report was that it's about time this practice of fingerprinting immigrants has been happening at our embassies abroad for decades it happens from indices from Argentina to Austria it's a face the staff efficient and respectful way to keep track of who's coming into the United States and I thought it makes sense to do this and the same thing for immigrant kids that are ready in America but common sense that seems to be strangled these days a representative to Laura out of Connecticut wants to use the resources that she has available as the chair of the house appropriations subcommittee to basically make sure that this policy is overturned and I take issue with that the resources that she's talking about our our taxpaying dollars and quite frankly I don't want my tax paying dollars to go to overturn a policy you being used for kids in the immigrant kids in America that's already been used for years for immigrant kids abroad yeah no question it's a good conversation thank you for the information and the insights and I will check back with you once once we get a little bit closer to your broker a book release as well that is doctor George frog his upcoming book is pro American immigration common ground in our immigration strategy and we'll be right back of bright light show newsradio six ten WIOD police activity eastbound
