A highlight from D&H bulks up portfolio to include Extreme Networks and Check Point, Podcast
"This is Doug Green and I'm the publisher of TR Publications and I'm very pleased to have with us today Jason Bistrak, who's the Senior Vice President of Modern Solutions at D &H Distributing. Jason, thank you for joining me today. Thanks for having me, Doug. It's good to speak with you again. So, we're going to be talking about some changes that you've made and some updates on Modern Solutions, specifically Xtreme and Checkpoint. Before we dive into that, what is D &H Distributing? Well thanks for asking, Doug. So D &H is one of the leading technology distributors in North America. We have a specialized focus on supporting partners and end clients in the SMB and in the mid -market, and that's really a strength of ours. The managed service provider channel is also a specialty focus area where we have all kinds of great programs and resources in particular to engage them and help them grow their business. So you've added to your line card, specifically you've added Xtreme Networks and Checkpoint. Do they fit into your D &H strategy? They sure do, and just to take a step back for a moment, my responsibility is leading the D &H Modern Solutions business, as you mentioned, and really what Modern Solutions is all about is about transformative technology solutions. So we have four categories, business applications, data center infrastructure, security, and collaboration solutions, and with Xtreme Networks jumping on board, that fits squarely into our infrastructure category, and then Checkpoint fits into security. And what's unique about our approach to those categories is that we allow a partner to make a single phone call, and we don't bounce them around to all kinds of different people to put a solution together. They get a single point of contact who can consult with them on the delivery model they choose, so whether it's on -premises, in the cloud, or hybrid, and they also consult with them on all the services that are required to support that solution. So whether it's assessment services, implementation services, or managed services, that single point of contact can put the whole solution together. And we're also uniquely qualified with our operational model, including the D &H Cloud Marketplace platform, to be able to handle all the transactions and operations tied to these complex solutions. So really, back to the reason for Xtreme Networks, they're a perfect fit with us, because they're moving into more targeting managed service providers, which is a sweet spot for us in our partner community, and they're also moving to more subscription and as -a -service models with the cloud offering, so they fit squarely into what we're doing within our modern infrastructure practice. Then when it comes to Checkpoint you mentioned, similarly, they are also moving into these types of models, so more of their products are being offered in cloud solutions or hybrid solutions, and certainly more of these as -a -service options with monthly payment models. We're equipped to handle that and really excited to work with them to help grow the business and support our MSPs downstream. So you guys just completed the Fall Thread Technology Conference in Las Vegas. Any comments from that? I think you guys served MSPs there, is that correct? We sure did. It was a very busy week. So it was actually two events in one that we hosted up in Vegas. So the beginning of the week, we had over 200 members from our V &H PartnerFi community join us, and we had sessions around business development workshops and partnering. We did a lot of work around technology enablement and some of the trends that are happening in the market, and really it's about networking and sharing best practices with that group. That's a consistent area for us. And then on Wednesday, we actually expanded that event to include all of our partners for the D &H Thread Conference, really the focus around the Western region. So they came in for a day where we had a technology showcase to be able to meet with a lot of vendor partners. We had business development tracks through our success path program, including a modern solutions workshop, and really a general session. We had great keynote speakers and motivational things happening, so a lot of energy, and it was great to meet with partners face -to -face for a couple of days. And did you get feedback on, you know, it's always a great chance to talk to people, meet people, see what's happening. You know, what are you hearing about AI and hybrid? Great question. Definitely some of the top trends, right? So you have your finger on the pulse as usual, Doug, but, you know, when it came to AI, that was all over. Almost every vendor that had workshops or keynote presentations talked about their AI strategy. I really heard great feedback about Microsoft and what they're doing with Copilot in particular, and D &H's lockstep with helping to support those solutions. I would say security was another topic, you know, as far as your partners looking at what's next coming with security, how's it transforming, what are some of the new technologies to help lock that down. And lastly, there was a lot of content around managed services, and I had the privilege of facilitating an MSP panel, where we had some really smart MSPs up there that have figured out some of the latest trends, and some of those included how to support hybrid workforce through managed services, how to really take on more around the security posture for their clients, and really just best practices around optimizing profitability as an MSP. So they gave good advice, I think, from a lot of the attendees. Well, Jason, I want to thank you for joining us today, giving us an update, especially on the extreme and checkpoint information. Very interesting to all of our readers and listeners. Where can we learn more about D &H? Well, the easiest way, Doug, would be our website, www .dandh .com. You can also follow us on social media, you know, pick your platform of preference, but we've got all kinds of content, posts, and ways to engage there, and happy to engage with anybody directly. You can email me at jbystrak, J -B -Y -S -T -R -A -K, at dandh .com. Well, Jason, I'm looking forward to our next podcast, but for now, thanks very much for joining me today. Thanks, as always, for your time, Doug, good to speak with you.

Former 49ers Quarterbacks: Where Are They Now?
"That brings us to our next question. Former 49er quarterbacks and where they are now and what's happening. I mean, you got Garoppolo, you got Purdy, you've got, uh, well, what's his name that got traded into Oblivion. Went to, did he go to Texan? Who are we talking about? Who is the quarterback in San Francisco who is all, everything. And they, Trent, uh, Oh, Trey Lance. Trey Lance. Oh, yeah. He's in the season. Everybody's forgotten about him already. Yes. Never going to play a football game. Okay. Question for both of you. Will Brock Purdy turn it around? And also number two, will the, will the Raiders get rid of Garoppolo? The Raiders will never get rid of Garoppolo cause he's too gorgeous. And, uh, Brock Purdy will turn it around. That team is way too talented for him not to turn it around. I agree. I actually agree with James on both of those. I think they're not only are they an incredible talented team, Brock Purdy's a good quarterback. He makes good decisions. Uh, it's tough to rattle him. Um, I, I believe if, if, I mean, losing Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel, I mean that that's a one, two punch that any quarterback's going to struggle with the kids going through some growing pains and he's finally facing some adversity in the NFL. I mean, it's about time he won his first eight, nine games, however many it was. So, you know, he, he just, he's come back down to earth and he looks human, but yeah, they're, they're going to make it better. And I hesitate to make any predictions about what the Las Vegas Raiders are ever going to do in the future. I love it. I love it. James, did you talk about my quarterback in Los Angeles? I mean, Las Vegas Raiders as being handsome. I don't, I don't care if he's rear end ugly. Okay. I want him to be able to throw the ball and not hit the barman in the back. But he's not ugly. And that's why he's still in Vegas. Listen, if there, listen, beautiful people get away with a lot of things, but Jimmy Garoppolo is on another level all the time. It's it's true though. Like he, I'm telling you, they, they probably, every team is like, you know, we got to get rid of this guy and then he walks into the room for negotiations and they're like, son of a, we can't let him go look at him face on all our billboards. Otherwise we're not going to have a female audience. I'm telling you right now, he is because he was, because he at some point with the 49ers obviously had some momentum and played okay. I guess, um, he just, he gets to stay and because there's so few good quarterbacks in this league, look how many teams are struggling because of

A highlight from 1248. Pet Prenups. Who Gets The Dog?
"Celebrating the connection with our pets. This is Animal Radio, featuring your dream team, veterinarian Dr. Debbie White and groomer Joey Vellani. And here are your hosts, Hal Abrams and Judy Francis. Dr. Debbie, she practices in Los Angeles. I don't know why she still practices. Los Angeles? I'm sorry. Las Vegas. I was going to say that was a mistake. She practices in Las Vegas, and I don't know why she's still practicing. She really does a fine job. I think she could move on to the actual thing right now, but she can answer your questions because she sees all kinds of weird, strange animals in Las Vegas. And you do see those in Los Angeles too, strange animals. And those are just the people. Yeah, those are two -legged kind. Hi Cheryl. Hi. What's going on with your animals? I have a nine -year -old Jack Russell Terrier that gets carsick. She's a real timid little dog and she gets really nervous in the car and took her on a trip to try it out. It was about a two -and -a -half -hour long trip and she threw up the whole way there. And on her way back she was exhausted, so she slept. But the problem is we were going to go on a vacation for about four days, and in the past we had another dog that we had to put down a couple months ago, and we would just leave them both at home and have someone come in and take care of them several times a day. And that worked out fine, but we really didn't want to leave her alone. And she's never really been kenneled. So I guess my question is, is there anything you can do for the car sickness? I believe it's caused by her getting really nervous. Yeah, yeah, definitely. There are things we can do for pets that have this problem, but you brought up a good point there is that for some pets it's truly a motion sickness problem, but for others it's really more of an anxiety -driven problem. And we can treat for motion sickness, but if they've got anxiety or fear for car travel, then it doesn't necessarily help them. So the first thing is to really kind of figure out which situation it is. If the sight of your car or just sitting in the car gets your dog salivating and gets them worked up, then we might be dealing more with an anxiety problem. Then if they're happy -go -lucky, they're in the car for a while, and then they get sick, that might be more of a motion sickness. So first thing is really the main way to treat this is to really condition the pet for car travel. So that's basically going to mean that we're going to slowly work up to exposures in the car and preferably not take them for that to our car ride until they are actually acclimated to the car. So we want to start really baby steps. So we get them maybe close to the car, we treat them, we give them goodies, we make it a pleasant experience, then we work up to opening the car door, making them sit in the car seat, coming back out, and then gradually turning on the car with the pet in it to actually going down the driveway. And as we do this, we're only doing little steps. So if at any point the pet shows fear, anxiety, or gets sick to their stomach, we stop because we're not going to win anything by trying to battle through it. We want to make it short, good exposures and make that car become a great thing that they become accustomed to. So that's how we work through that aspect. And eventually we build up to longer and longer exposures within the car. Now to do that, you might need some other tools to help you. And there's some kind of natural steps we might try. And then there's going to be also some different types of medications that we can look at. So if we're looking at a pet that has true motion sickness, I'm going to go for more or like Dramamine a drug called Cerenia. Both of those, you can talk to your veterinarian about the right doses, and they can be helpful for a lot of pets with car travel.

I am Matt Verteram alongside Gilberto Manzano, as is the case every single Wednesday. And Gilberto, look, first things first. Here's the good news. We still have our jobs. The bad news is some people with the Raiders do not. Now, maybe if you're a Raiders fan, maybe that's not bad news. Maybe that's great news. I don't know. I'm not I'm not part of Raider nation. I would imagine that the frustrations at an all time high. You have covered the Raiders in the past as a Team Beat guy. They are now looking at Antonio Pierce as their interim head coach because Josh McDaniels is gone. Dave Ziegler gone as the general manager. And so we'll see who takes over that post eventually. This is not exactly new to the Raiders. This has been a revolving door, whether it was Jack Del Rio at one point, a head coach, or it was John Gruden or it was Tony Soprano or it was, I mean, on and on and on and on, you know, Mike Mayock at GM. And you can just keep filling in the names. None of them lasted that long. And so now the Raiders mid -season firing, of course, because it's happened with Gruden under different circumstances. Gruden, essentially, they had to move off of immediately. McDaniels are moving off of because he just flat can't coach. What are your thoughts on the Raiders and what happened essentially at like midnight for most of the country, these two out the door? Yeah, you know, I'll start there. It was like, I think, 10 p .m. on the West Coast. So, you know, I was still up trying to enjoy the last couple hours of Halloween. And Matt, I was watching the original Friday the 13th. I was carving a pumpkin. I had like maybe, you know, 50, you know, chocolate bars. You know, I was stuffed and I saw this from Adam Schefter. And I'm like, oh, okay. I was a little surprised. Mark Davis actually did it 25 games into the hiring of Josh McDaniels, which I think we all could say, yeah, it was a bad hiring a year and a half ago. But shocking that Mark Davis actually did it before the second year was over. And this guy, what, a month ago told a fan at SoFi Stadium, smart enough, smart enough, you can't fire Josh McDaniels. And all of a sudden you're the one that got smart enough. OK, I don't know. I have a lot of emotions about that, you know, the way it played out. But, you know, I wanted to give you my reaction about how I caught this on Halloween Eve. And I'm sure people on the East Coast, you're two hours ahead of me, Matt. So I don't know if you caught it right away, but a lot of people were sleeping and they woke up. So you probably like at midnight, OK, what the heck happened here? But I'll start there. I was just shocked that Mark Davis did it, but it was a right call. I Yeah, figured you'd do it after the season. But it's funny because I was assigned the Monday night game. And so the Raiders are playing the Lions and I'm sitting there and I'm thinking, like, what can I write about this game? I mean, the Lions are just rolling up and down the field. But like I've written about the Lions. I've been in a few of their games this year in person. I was like, look, there's not I feel like we're not learning anything about the Lions. They're a good team. And the Raiders are sitting there in Grappola, throwing for like 40 yards through three quarters and just hideous football. Adams is frustrated. McDaniels is just looking at his face like he knows the end might be near. And I said to our editor, John Bloom, I said, you know. How about I just write a piece that I just say they should fire McDaniels and just bench Garoppolo and be done with this? And we then both kind of agreed like, well, that's all right. You know, it's early. We'll pass on it, whatever. And we ended up not writing anything about the game because the game is kind of just a non story. And I was joking with John this morning. My God, we should have wrote that piece would have been the most prescient people in the country. I didn't think it was going to happen the next day. But I mean, what a what a just absolute tire fire. Look, Josh McDaniels. Is a terrible head coach, and he showed that in Denver, like he not only was bad in Denver, he ran guys out the door. You know, Jay Cutler gone, Brandon Marshall gone. Josh McDaniels from afar has the syndrome of being the smartest guy in the room. And he's not the smartest guy in the room. Not saying he can't be a coordinator. Had plenty of success as a coordinator with Brady. And I don't know if he could be a coordinator without Tom Brady. He had plenty of success with him. Josh McDaniels was a disaster in Denver. He quit on the Colts before he even got started with the Colts. And now you look at this Raiders tenure. They never got any traction. They blew a million big leads last year. They went six and 11 after making the playoffs. I might add the year prior. Runs their car out of town, runs Darren Waller out of town. Hunter Renfro is barely playing. And now you're sitting here in the three and five, and they're not even as good as a three and five record would indicate. They have not played well all year long. I just think the Raiders going forward here. It now becomes a matter of. How do you fix the process of finding the right guys? Because Mark Davis has not found the right guys over and over and over like this starts with him. You could fire the coach in the GM all you want. Mark Davis has been a failure of an owner since he took over for the late great Al Davis, of course, his father. That's where this thing starts. Like, does he bring in an outside firm to do these hirings? Because I think that's where this has to go at this point. He has proven he cannot make these hirings with any kind of success rate. Yeah, man, you know, I'm concerned about, you know, Mark Davis just, you know, being kind of a you know, he cares about what the public perception is. OK, what are they saying out there? And that's why he went off on that fan. And so if I say I'm saying smart enough and I'm like, why do you care? Let the guy just say whatever he has to say. And then you're the one running the show here. You know, you're the one has to make the smart decision for the team. And yes, he did the right call. Let him go. Josh McDaniel's. But his two last hirings, he wanted a big name. He wanted a big name with John Gruden. You already went down that road. You give the guy a 10 year contract like, you know, I think you want to make you want to make a splash. You're going to Las Vegas like that didn't sit right with me. And obviously that that went sideways for different reasons. And the same thing with Josh McDaniel's. You're going to get headlines regardless. Like, yeah, you know what happened with the Colts briefly with the handshake. And then you bail out and then what happened in Denver? Like these are all red flags for the guy. And you still go because you want to try to copy the picture away. That's the biggest thing right there, man. You can't copy something and try to replicate it. And that's kind of the worst way to do it, too. So, you know, and I'll say this about Josh McDaniel's, because, you know, I guess my rule and I get why you want to write that piece. But and I get what you guys decide is a little too soon, because it did feel a little too soon. But it was a right situation because Josh McDaniel's background is offense. And that is a horrendous offense. I think he's put out there. And reason number two, man, it was his guys. He finally said, you know what, Derek Carr, different regime. Let me get Jimmy G and I don't know what the story is about Jimmy G's being the number one, two or three option. Who cares? You picked them. You brought them in with Dave Ziegler and all these Patriot guys came in. And you're still that bad. Josh Jacobs was a reigning champion a year ago, and he's rushing for like two point four yards per carrier, something pretty bad. So that's your background. And the other the third point, Matt, you always need a scapegoat. And the defense has been playing pretty well. Patrick Graham cannot take the fall when his defense is actually producing. It's your office, your guys. So see you later. Yeah, I mean. I'm to the point with the Raiders. I'm thirty five. I know you're essentially the same age as me. They've sucked my entire life, say, for like three or four years with Rich Cannon. OK, and that's not that sounds like I'm just like taking some cheap shot out. My point is you got to do something differently. I mean, it's some juncture. You know, the Raiders have this weird pride about like who they are. That was great in the 70s and 80s. You there don't should be no pride in who you are now. You've been a losing friend. You've you've been the Lions for 30 years. You've been the Browns. That's who you've been. I mean, everybody talks about the Raiders like this is some unbelievable gold standard of a franchise. Yeah, it wasn't the 70s and 80s. It's not anymore. It hasn't been for a long time. I mean, they have not won a playoff game since the twenty two season. Two thousand and two. You're talking over 20 years now. And most of those years have been non -competitive. And you're now looking at this thing going, all right, look, you need a quarterback, you need a coach, you need a GM. That is that is a lot in a division where you're looking up at Patrick Mahomes and in a conference where you're looking up at not only Mahomes, but at Burrow and Allen and Lawrence and potentially the ascension of Tua and all these other guys. Lamar, right? And all these guys. They have miles to go, which leads me to this. I don't know how you feel about this. We haven't talked about this for a show. At the end of this season, I would trade Devante Adams and I would trade Max Crosby for as much draft capital as I could possibly get, because by the time they're really good, Adams isn't going to be there anymore. And by the time they're really good, I don't know what you're getting out of Max Crosby. Like those guys both fetch first rounders plus right now, maybe even multiple first rounders. Like if I'm them and I'm the GM there, man, I know it's going to be a rough couple of years. I get it. I would trade both those guys for the highest possible value I could get. Yeah. And you know, the concerning part about Mark Davis being so quick with the firing. Like, does he want like a quick fix? Like you think this roster is ready to win now? Yeah, you got Devante, Max Crosby and Josh Jacobs, three guys that are pretty good at the position, but you need a full teardown. Go get the draft picks like you mentioned, Matt. And, you know, and actually do a hiring where you're not trying to copy the old silver and black way or copy the Patriot way. Like find your own identity. Mark Davis, like, like it's been many years now, over a decade, your dad hasn't been around and you know, you can't copy things that you can't go with for the big name. You don't want to try to keep up with your, your, your owner friends and say, look at who I got here. And look how much money I'm getting on Las Vegas. Like the other bad thing too, like seeing the, the, the allegiance state of being taken over by the opposing fans. Like you're, you're the Raiders. You have fans all over your Raider nation. So even that part is really bad for where Mark Davis is doing. So like you mentioned, you know, hire somebody from the outside to help you out because you haven't been doing it right. Credit for owning your mistake and eating the money from the Gruden contract and now with Josh McDaniels, but enough with the copying, the quick fix, like I'm with you a hundred percent tear down this roster. Like, like yesterday, what are the Broncos doing? Keeping all these players, like go get the draft picks and do a full rebuild. So a lot of heads crashing moves. It's weird. Like the dovetail on the Bronx, that's actually a perfect segue into this, this next topic we're going to have here last. I'll say on the Raiders by the way, and all these things enough with the Patriot way, you know what the Patriot way was? It was Belichick and Brady. That's the Patriot way. So unless you're, you're turning back time, 20 years, it's not going to work. The Broncos though, you know, we want to talk about the NFL trade deadline, which of course was on Tuesday, winners and losers go. You did a great piece, man. I'm breaking that all down. I encourage people to check that out. I agree with you. Just about everything you wrote. It was excellent. Um, I sat there and thought the same thing you just said about Denver. What is the point of keeping all these guys like, do they think because they beat the chiefs in that game, that they're a contending team now? I mean, I don't know if, let me save everybody to suspense and drama. I sat through every snap of that football game. If you told me the chiefs had money on Denver, I'd be like, that makes sense. I could see that that was the worst game I've seen them play in the Mahomes era. And I'm not trying to gain away from Denver, but I'm going to be honest. That was not because Denver was some juggernaut in that football game. The Broncos went an average of 33 yards per touchdown drive.
Mark Levin: Islamophobia Exists
"Who's a this? Who's a that? Islamophobia. Islamophobia. This group care? Islamophobia. They promote Hamas. They are created by Hamas. They're Islamophobic. Are they not? Yes, they are. As are the other front groups for terrorists. The other front groups for terrorists. I was watching a local MSLSD channel. I think it was in Florida, but it may have been in Las Vegas. The days are kind of mixing up. And the anchors cited care. Care says that that was MSNBC. Care says that three times Islamophobic whatever. What It's happened? a sad fact that this is done to try and create a moral equivalency between terrorists and humanity and life. The organization care should be fully investigated by the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service.

Ken Goodrich: From Dad's Flashlight Assistant to $300 Million HVAC Titan
"Today we want to welcome Ken Goodrich. I've already told you a little bit about him. And I've got some questions for him that all of you will be very interested to know more about and just where our HVAC is going. We just talked a little bit about that. But you know, Ken, a lot of times people ask me, did you know you were going to be this successful or did you know this was going to happen? And did you know you were going to own this and all that kind of stuff? And you know, you're 100 times bigger than we are. And I just have to ask you, if you don't know folks who are listening, Ken used to carry a flashlight for his dad when his dad owned a heating and air conditioning company. And Ken, when you were carrying that flashlight, I mean, did you have any idea what the future held for you? Well, certainly not then. You know, I mean, I was enslaved in the family business and you know, I'm out here in Las Vegas where I'm sure every market has their weather nuances, but I'm in Las Vegas where most of the air conditioners at that time were on the roof. And you know, we were working on the roof all day, every day in the summertime and you know, with, you know, 110, 115 degrees beaten down on you. So no, I was always thinking about when can I get out of this really at that age. And then I went to, you know, I really set the goal to get out of the air conditioning business and I went to college. And so, I studied finance and when they started to get to the point where you're going and talking to recruiters, I'm getting job offers and they're giving me job offers. You know, I think at the time it was something ridiculous, maybe $25 ,000 a year to start. This was in the early 80s, maybe 30 ,000. And I said, I'm making 60 ,000 a year part -time side job in air conditioning. So, I decided at that point that I wasn't going to go the finance route and I'm going to buckle down and start my own HVAC business and be an entrepreneur because I knew that well, I knew how to make money at it. I had some new tools from school and I thought I'd go at it that way. So no, I guess to clean up that question, no, when I first got in it, while it was fun working with my dad and I learned a lot of stuff, I couldn't wait to get out of it back then. You worked with your dad for about how long? 15 years. You know, I started with when I was 10 years old and then, you know, every night, weekend and summer since that moment and then he passed away when I was 25 and I bought the family business from my mom, which was me in a van. It was one van that dad and I used to ride along with and a three by five, those three by five postcards with the customer's names and everything written on them and the last service call in a little box. That's what I got. Sure. So that really wasn't that long ago. I mean, it wasn't 100 years ago. It was about how long ago when you bought the business? I bought the business in 1987. Yeah. So we're talking, what, 35, 36 years ago. And just to give a snapshot, fast forward, Gettle was doing about how much in the last year or so? You know, Gettle's $300 million business in four states and, you know, over a thousand employees

A highlight from Will Ripple IPO in 2024? SEC Ripple XRP Ruling with Linqto Ray Fuentes
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. With me today is Ray Fuentes, who's the Community Director at Link2. Ray, it's great to have you on, my friend. Tony, it's quite the privilege to be on your podcast, sir. I'm a huge fan. Thank you for having me. For sure. We obviously bumped into each other recently at the Ripple Proper Party. It was a real good time. Did you have a good time at the party as well? I had an amazing time, Tony, and it's so funny because when I think back of the event itself, all I could see is you wearing your famous, I love Gary t -shirt, Gary Gensler t -shirt. Just kidding, but it was great bumping into you, it was great bumping into the XRP community and the energy was high. We got to dance to Lenny Kravitz. That took me back to a really great time just getting dropped off at school by my mom because all we would do is listen to... We literally had a Lenny Kravitz CD playing for quite some time, maybe a couple of years of middle school into high school, but regardless, it took me back to a great time of just dancing with my mom and also she was even there at the Ripple Proper Party alongside. Oh, that's great. Yeah, so it was a good time and it was even... Some other takeaways are obviously bumping into you, DAI, Brad Kimes, Stu Alderati, and others from the space as well and where I'm going is it was really exciting to hear even Brad lean Garlinghouse in and talk about XRP Las Vegas 2024 and so kudos to Brad Kimes and his team for what I believe they're going to be hosting another successful conference in Vegas come 2024. So hopefully I have an opportunity to MC that like I did last year and maybe you'll be there this year, hopefully. Yeah, I'm hoping to be there. I couldn't make it this year due to some family issues, but yeah, I have it on the calendar and I'm definitely going to try to make it out and it's Vegas, so it should be fun. Yeah, it should be a really good time and it wouldn't be the same without you. So I'm looking forward to seeing you there, sir. Now, since we're on the topic of Ripple, with the ruling in Ripple's favor for the large part, XRP being declared a security in many different instances, was there a higher demand for Ripple equity, which is already something that's been on your platform, on the link to platform after that ruling, was there a higher demand? Absolutely, Tony, 100%, I mean, around even this time last week, if you were to look at link, if you did look at link to his website, we were hovering around 285 million in total member investments. Now fast forward to today, or even since the Ripple proper party, we're now succeeded past 293 million. Now I'm not saying all of that is generated because of Ripple, because it's not. We have thankfully a breadth of high quality private companies, including PolySign, Axiom Space, Zipline, Cerebrum Systems. So we're seeing demand for all of these companies in addition to Ripple, but definitely Ripple is driving the volume for that essentially, I mean, I think we saw about 10 million in investments since roughly around this time, even last week. So we are picking up steam, we are ramping up and we're definitely seeing the demand. So in regards to the lawsuit, XRP has, yes, been declared, thankfully, not a security and the SEC can appeal that. So right now, I think it's safe to say XRP is the only digital asset in the USA with legal clarity and I believe people are picking up on what's coming down the pike and it's an exciting time, not just for link to, not just for the XRP community, but I believe for crypto at large.

I'm Chris Mannix joined this week by my colleague at Sports Illustrated, Rohan Nadkarni. And Rohan, it's always good when we have some breaking news on the podcast. We are recording this on the day the NBA returns. Tuesday night, double header, Warriors Suns, Lakers Nuggets. That's going to be a lot of fun to watch on Tuesday. But the big story over the weekend was Giannis Atentecumpo once again saying, Milwaukee, you are my home. Giannis agreeing to a three -year, $186 million contract extension. We'll get into kind of the nuances of why this extension makes sense financially right now. And why he would do it now. And what kind of contracts he can sign in the future. But this was something I think that Bucs fans and the Bucs front office was optimistic about in the aftermath of Milwaukee acquiring Damian Lillard. But now, here we are with Damian Lillard under contract for the next four seasons. Giannis Atentecumpo under contract for, I believe, three of the next four seasons. I'll get the numbers right. But the last year's a player option of that deal. But he's under contract at least until his early 30s, putting him through his prime years in Milwaukee. Your reaction to this deal getting done at the 11th hour before the start of the season? Pretty surprised only because Giannis himself kind of mentioned early this summer why financially it wouldn't make the most sense for him to do it now. As you alluded to, there is some kind of not quite complicated math, but a series of steps that Giannis can undergo to kind of maximize the financial impact of taking this deal now. So he's still coming out ahead money -wise. I mean, I wrote when the Damian Lillard trade went down, I should say, that this was a huge win and it only becomes a bigger win for Milwaukee if Giannis signs. And that's what happened. And I think, listen, this team, the expectations still win a title, all those things. But for the city of Milwaukee, for the franchise, even if they don't win a title now, if you get another three or four years of Giannis at Centecumpo, you get his entire prime in Milwaukee. You put off the conversation, at least for a couple years, about whether he's leaving, etc. That's a huge win. It makes the Lillard trade a win already. It's really incredible work by their franchise. I mean, we sat here, Chris, I'd say at the beginning of the summer, kind of wondering aloud what moves are on the table for the Bucks because they looked a little bit boxed in at the start of the summer in terms of what they could do to improve the roster around Giannis. To go around and get Damian Lillard and then sign Giannis to an extension the same summer, when no one was expecting either of those moves, it's an unequivocal, unqualified, total home run for the Bucks. No, I tweeted this in the immediate aftermath. This was an executive of the year stretch for John Horst. Not only does he get Damian Lillard into the fold, which makes the Bucks better in the short term, he ensures long -term viability by getting Giannis' name on a contract. Just to clear up the math here and sort of explain what kind of deal Giannis has signed. He is under contract now for the next four years. This year's age 28 season, he's going to make $45 .6 million. Next year, he'll make $45 .8 million. The new deal kicks in in the 25 -26 season, which will put Giannis at $57 .6 million that year, $62 .2 million in 26 -27. He has a player option for 22 -28, which would be year five of this new deal that he's operating under, which is worth $66 .8 million. The reason that he signs this contract right now, and I want to give credit to Bobby Marks, the ESPN front office insider, because he's been able to explain this in a way even idiots like you and me can't understand. It's mutually beneficial for the two sides to do a deal like this right now. Because of that over 38 rule that exists, Giannis could sign a short -term extension again with Milwaukee in 2026, and then a four -year extension with the Bucks in 2028. What this deal is effectively doing, or the message it's sending, is that Giannis is a buck for life. He's going to be alongside Damian Lillard for the next four seasons. That's a guy we've talked about a lot. He likes Damian Lillard, and he wants to play with Damian Lillard. Not only is Giannis getting himself financially set up for the short term by signing this three -year extension, he is putting the dominoes in place to make the max possible amount of money over the next 10 years of his playing career. Anyone that might have been wondering if Giannis is going to be a buck over the long term, it sure looks right now that Giannis is going to be playing in Milwaukee for the entirety of his NBA career. I think we're looking, Rohan, at another Dirk Nowitzki. I think this is kind of a Dirk -like situation where the Bucks have shown Giannis enough. They've shown Giannis enough that he is willing to commit to this team long term. Absolutely. And I'll just leave a little bit of room. Our old friend Howard Beck wrote about it today for The Ringer that everything is great right now. Up until things change, if this flames out, whatever, we've seen stars request trades, etc. I'll leave a little room for that, but I'm with you. And I think it's great for the NBA. I really do. I want to see Jokic in Denver for his entire career. I want to see Giannis in Milwaukee for his entire career. We've kind of lost that the last few years with guys moving around teams so much. There's been this conversation this week, should Kevin Durant have his jersey retired in Golden State? I think it'll happen and I think it's fine, but it's just not the same. It's not the same as a guy like Giannis staying in one place for his entire career. It's refreshing to see. I think it's just so good for the league. I'm excited, man. I'm excited to see him battle with the Celtics this year. I miss the days when it felt like you could think these two teams are going to have to get through each other for the next few years. We're setting up for that with Giannis and Tatum for the next few years. As a basketball fan, I'm just really excited. I think you hit the nail on the head. I think he's going to be kind of remembered as this generation's Dirk for just how synonymous he is with Milwaukee. The fact that Giannis said the things he said earlier this summer, he said he wants to play for a winner, and backed it up, I just think says a lot about the kind of person he is. That was not just posturing or whatever. Milwaukee made some good faith moves, and he signed a good faith extension in return. To contrast this with Lillard's situation in Portland, Lillard committed to the Blazers, but he didn't demand action out of them before he committed to them. Giannis came out this offseason in multiple interviews and said, I'm paraphrasing, of course. You've got to make sure that you have a championship roster around me. He put a lot of pressure on the Bucs to get something done. To the Bucs credit, for the second time in three years, they pulled off a deal that made Giannis happy. Drew Holiday, his acquisition a few years ago, that made Giannis happy. Now, Damian Lillard bringing him in, that makes Giannis happy. He was able to use his status with the team to push them to go all in for a championship. Once they did, he committed. He was true to his word, and said he would commit to the Milwaukee Bucs. I do think that's commendable for Giannis as well. I think, short term, if you're looking for questions about the Bucs, there are a couple of them. Chris Middleton is the most glaring. I have no idea what to expect from Chris Middleton this year. He missed half the season last year. Then there's that weird, vague pre -season talk for me. Well, I'm going to get to that. I'm going to get to that. I like the coaching stuff. Chris Middleton, his status is a big variable here. I think with a healthy Chris Middleton, the Bucs are the number one team in the East. It's still close, because I think Boston is really good, obviously. But with Middleton, I think they're number one. Without him, I think they're number two. I'm anxious to see how healthy he is at the start of the season, and how healthy he can be throughout the season. The other part of it is coaching. This Terry Stotts story has kind of gone away over the last couple of days. Frankly, who really cares about an assistant coaching change on an NBA team? This is a real thing. Terry Stotts was given a hands -on role to effectively be the architect of this Bucs offense. We know this, because Damian Lillard came out last week and said, Look, this is the same offense I ran in Portland. The guys that are veterans on the Milwaukee team were coming to him and saying, Well, what about this? What about that? What's the right way to run this particular play? Terry Stotts was not just a sage voice on Adrian Griffin's bench. He was someone that was intimately involved and integrally involved in what this team does offensively. We've seen the reporting that there was some kind of public blow up at a shoot around or a practice between Terry Stotts and Adrian Griffin. I had not heard about that. I had heard in the hours after Stotts decided to leave the team that he just wasn't comfortable being Adrian Griffin's assistant coach. That's kind of what it came down to. Terry Stotts has been head coach in the NBA for a long time. He has had some levels of success as a head coach. Adrian Griffin came in and Adrian Griffin, people have told me he rides his assistants out there. He makes them work pretty hard. Adrian Griffin worked under Scott Skiles for a while, worked under a number of different coaches in different situations. Adrian Griffin had high expectations and demanded a lot from his assistant coaches. The way I was explained to me was Terry Stotts just wasn't comfortable with the dynamic, didn't like the dynamic with Adrian Griffin. Maybe that dust up in practice was the straw that broke the camel's back, but it felt like the people I talked to that it was coming. I don't think this is inconsequential. I really don't because now everybody else on that Bucs staff gets bumped up a seat. Now you don't necessarily have the guy on the bench with that kind of gravitas is the right word, but certainly experience that Terry Stotts brought to the table. I don't think we can dismiss his exit as nothing because I do think it's something. Yeah, not to mention his relationship with Damian Lillard, right? I mean, that's something that I think was probably providing Dame some level of comfort. He obviously posted a photo of them together on Instagram after. Take that for what it's worth. I mean Terry Stotts and Damian Lillard will always have a great relationship. Terry Stotts empowered Damian Lillard over nine years. Like took him on as a rookie and helped develop him into the player he became. So I can understand the loyalty between Lillard and Stotts. The one interesting thing about the Bucs and Celtics, I'd say, is the questions around their coaching staffs. You know, Missoula had to deal with it a lot last year, especially during the playoffs. Now listen, at the end of the day, he came within a game seven and Jason Tatum maybe not turned his ankle of making it to the finals. So maybe that stuff was overblown. But, you know, there's been a lot of talk about the assistance the Celtics added this summer and the reasons they needed to do that. Bringing in a guy like Jeff Van Gundy, for example, to consult with them. And the importance of that experience that it's a lot of pressure on Adrian Griffin in his first year to deliver a team with title expectations. And now he's losing his most experienced assistant coach. It's going to be very interesting. I think that's a serious variable for the Bucs. We've seen it cut both ways. I mean, we've seen Nick Nurse have a lot of success. We've seen Emei Yudoka have a lot of success. Other times it doesn't go as well. So I think it's going to be very interesting keeping an eye on just how the coaching staff in both Milwaukee and Boston ultimately affects what those teams do. I think one of the undercurrents of the Celtics summer, for example, was maybe moving on from some of the guys that didn't fully buy in with Missoula. Guys who necessarily didn't have the best relationship with him. So I don't know that it's going to make a huge impact because they're just so much more talented than the rest of the conference. But I'm interested to see how that plays out. Yeah, it certainly adds a wrinkle to what Milwaukee's trying to do this season. I think with such a slim margin between the Celtics and the Bucs, anything can make a difference. So that's worth keeping an eye on this year.

"Amen. We have debates on stage internally. We have debates. Okay. So you're a great debater. Any points that you give to somebody, regardless if you're debating on stage here for this conference or debating out when we're running our businesses and debating with folks in our communities, and we may have some future politicians and some policymakers here, or we give birth to future governors and presidents around out of this. Honestly, don't become a politician. Get super rich and then donate to politicians. It's way nicer. So please, it's like we have enough politicians. We need more entrepreneurs, value creators. Debating. Three things. Know your audience. Are you trying to win over an external audience? Are you trying to win over the person you're debating? That's not the same thing, right? So if you're debating in a classroom, if you're debating on an online forum, you might be trying to win over somebody else, not the actual person you're debating. Number two, it's not some sort of crazy thing, but just ask questions. Instead of telling people you believe, say, oh, where has that ever worked before? Or that's interesting. Have you ever considered from this way? Ask questions. Number three, know your material. There is no replacement to understanding the knowledge of whatever you're debating. So, you know, it motivated me to not go to college because I was tired of people telling me that I was stupid and dumb. It's like, okay, I'm going to read more than you. I'm going to study more than you. And I take learning just as seriously as anything else I do. Just as seriously as some of you guys go to the gym, as seriously as you guys, you know, whatever it is that you take seriously, people say, Charlie, what's your hobby? Like, honestly, my hobby is reading and turning my phone off and learning. I love learning. But all sorts of different types of topics. Geopolitics, economics, history, philosophy. And there's so much out there that can sharpen you for a very, very adversarial world. And honestly, I think it's fun. I think it's fun to learn. I think that if you have a passion for a topic, becoming a master of it, I find great delight and comfort in that. Charlie, we have the last couple of minutes here. I will give you a final word here. What do you want us to take away from this conversation for us to save America? What's going on today? I know you mentioned entrepreneurship. I mentioned a lot of different things. What would you like to have us take away? Yeah, thank you for that. I'm going to do a shameless plug. If you guys want to subscribe to my podcast, you can. I think you guys might like it. We're constantly, we do three podcasts a day. It's the Charlie Kirk show. And if you agree with some of the stuff we're talking about or even disagree, we're never boring. That's my guarantee. Charlie Kirk show, never boring. And so you guys can check that out. A couple of things. Please, my encouragement for you is break out of the media matrix of the mindset that they have in you. We live in a beautiful country. There's so much opportunity in front of you. You are the master of your own destiny and that you can chart a course that is better for yourself and for your kids and for your grandkids. You live in the envy of the world. So you have a choice. You can, and if I were to divide the country again, there's two other groups of people. There are the grateful and the ungrateful, the mark of the happiest and the most joyful people on the planet are people that make the conscious decision and attitude to engage in gratitude.Gratitude is the fruit that makes all other things taste sweet. In gratitude is the gateway drug towards resentment, towards bitterness, and towards envy. And every single day, if you go through the conscious decision of, I am going to say, I am thankful to God or whoever you want to be thankful to for my circumstance, for life, breath, that I get a chance to be on this planet, as it says in Esther, for such a time as this, your entire mindset will shift. We could go all day long, and I don't mean this in a joking way, and we could bring up a hundred random people in this arena and we would hear story after story of difficulty, of parents that died unexpectedly, of kids that are dealing with health challenges. All of that is legitimate. But is that what we are going to assume as our permanent place of dwelling? Instead, if you say, I am grateful that I live in this nation, I'm grateful that I have a chance to be able to take risks, I'm grateful that I get to be an entrepreneur, everything starts to change, and you look at these things as opportunities, not as obstacles, you will break through in a place, and honestly, you will no longer be part of the generation that is the most suicidal, alcohol-addicted, drug-addicted, porn-addicted generation in history, and it's just as simple as a mindset shift. And let me just kind of close with this, because you did open the door previously. The most important way that you will be thankful, though, is realize that there's a God who created you, and he loved you so much that he sent his son on a rescue mission to save you, and there's nothing you do for it. You don't earn it, you accept it. It is a free gift right in front of you. The gospel in four words is Jesus took my place. Three words him for me, two words substitutionary atonement, one word grace. Every single person in this room will have to meet our creator. I am thankful beyond any words that when I have to go hold account for all of my treachery, my deceit, my lying, my self-righteousness, I have a bailout card, so I'll be able to say, I gave my life to your son, Jesus Christ, and for that I will be bailed out for all my sins. God bless you guys, and thank you so much for having me. Everybody, Charlie Kirk! Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email us your thoughts. There's always freedom at charliekirk.com. Thank you so much for listening, and God bless. Do you? Think again.

"When you are around his family, around his kids, from your observation, how has he raised his kids to integrate and see them as part of his personal life and business life? Can I just like riff on Trump just for a second? So look, I'm sure you guys all have mixed opinions of him. I honestly have heard it all. I really don't care. So I mean, I'm not here to convince you otherwise. I'm just going to convince you one thing, okay? That you might hate the man. You might love the man. You might think he's terrible. You might want him in prison or whatever. If you want to be an entrepreneur, listen very, a successful one, listen very carefully what I'm telling you, okay? You will experience adversity in life. It's a guarantee. There'll be times where you get sued, you get lied about, you get leaked on by a former employee. All these things are a guarantee of being an entrepreneur. And we hear about on the media, every single negative of Donald Trump. Narcissist, egotist, whatever. Do we ever hear about the virtues of Donald Trump ever? Let me tell you one. I pray that you guys are a fraction as tough as he is when the whole world comes collapsing down around you or around him. And you might say, oh, Charlie, that doesn't convince me. If you are facing 600 years in federal prison, literally like 100 different lawsuits, everybody coming against you. I don't know if I'd have the fortitude to keep on going, but I would just want you to look at him in a different way the next couple of weeks and say, boy, he has every reason to give up. Every single reason to say no more, because you will be in a place in life in the next decade or two where it feels like the walls are closing in, where everything is collapsing. And I want you to look and say, you know what? Despite all the negatives I hear about him, I think it is darn admirable that this guy keeps on fighting and he keeps on scrapping and you will not give up. So as far as his kids, he's raised great kids. Look, I'm biased. President Trump has been a great friend. We've gotten to know each other really well. He treated me super well. I'm awfully defensive of him in the sense of just like, I don't think people really understand who he is. He's an alpha beast entrepreneur that loves his country, that is the bodyguard of Western civilization. He's like New York City entrepreneur, developer meets UFC fighter, you know, meets just like, I want to see the country in a better place. And I really am, I'm saddened by where we're at in the country, regardless of your politics. I really, it doesn't really bother me. I think we can all agree that it's just flat out wrong that you can use the instruments of government to go indict. Like honestly, if you hate Trump so much, go beat him at the ballot box. Like stop indicting him. Okay, you are cutting in line to try to interrupt a direct referendum of whether or not you want this person to be an elective office or not. And so the other thing I'll say about this, I've never seen a human being work as hard as Donald Trump. I just had dinner with him a couple weeks ago in Bedminster, New Jersey. And like, I'm a pretty high energy guy and he exhausts me. Like exhausts me. Like after two hours of a dinner with him, I'm like, I got to go to bed. He's like, and how about this and this guy and this. Have you seen this thing? And like, oh my goodness. And 77, 77. And I guess Benjamin Button, I think he's getting younger. It's like, unbelievable. I see him. He's like, he's looking fitter and better. And in some ways, like all this opposition is like a life force to him. And I'll kind of just repeat what I said in a different way though, which is, you know, it, it's easy to complain. It's easy to give up. It's easy to do all those things. But you are, there's going to be a question where there's a fork in the road. Do I surrender or do I persevere? Do I surrender or do I persevere? And I've learned the lesson firsthand from him that whenever I come against opposition, then I'm going to keep on pushing through.

"I can't get away. I can't get around Vegas very quickly or cheaply. OK, how about we have a ride share service? We'll call it Uber or Lyft. Oh, you know, the coffee really is awful at the local gas station. OK, we're going to revolutionize what we do coffee, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks. Find something people are complaining about and then develop a solution. And then you're able to get rich. And so what it requires, though, is it requires an entire mindset shift. And here's one of my challenges for you is to start realizing the thought patterns that might be holding you hostage or prison that are actually keeping you in a place of control, not in a place of growth. And the best way to isolate this is by journaling. Journaling is great because it's intentionally slow. You cannot write as fast as you think. Therefore, it requires you to be precise in what you're actually thinking. And so if you journal every single day, you're like, wow, I'm really negative about myself. Like, I'm over focusing on the heaviness and the pessimism. And then all of a sudden you could be like, you know what? I'm going to develop better thought patterns. There's a great book called The Gap in the Game that really emphasizes this. It's changed my life. It's a great book. But you have a total choice over what type of thought matrixes you are going to bring into your own life, which is really beautiful when you think about it, because the rest of believe that you are not able to control the attitude you bring to the rest of your life. Doing this for 11 years, I've had a chance to meet over 200 billionaires, meet people all across the world. What's the one thing the rich, the wealthy and the successful have in common more than anything else? It's not their intelligence. It's not. It's not even that they all went to college. It's not. It's the attitude that they bring to life. The attitude of self-made entrepreneurs of high levels is an attitude that you present something that 99% of the world would consider to be an impediment. They look as an opportunity. It is the biggest reason that divides the wealth creators versus people that are permanently government addicted. Crazy. But I'm just, yeah, there you go. I was thinking about our CEO, Patrick McDavid, doesn't have a college degree, immigrant. Our top income earners of PHP, 95% don't have a college degree. I don't have a college degree. You don't have a college degree. Success leaves clues. I'm thinking about Turning Point USA. You took your graduation money and there's, as I was researching, how did you create this organization? There's a gentleman that you tracked down. What's his name? Correct. Can you say his name again? Yeah, Foster Freeze. Foster Freeze. So you're 18, 19 years old and you hit him up. You're getting ready and he donates $10,000 to your organization. Can you tell me what that preparation is like because you don't have, you're 18, how old were you at that time? 18, 19 years old? Yeah, 18, 19. And you were prepared. You were ready to have a conversation with him. So this is what drives me nuts. I met a college kid recently. I said, what are you studying? He said, I'm studying entrepreneurship. I said, well, that is a waste of time and money, man. You don't study entrepreneurship. You do entrepreneurship. Here's the thing. I give advice to entrepreneurs all the time and just like we've been so blessed. Okay. We have 350 employees at Turning Point USA. You know, we do over $80 million in revenue. We have 280,000 donors. We're praise God beyond my wildest expectations. So, but one of the things I learned about being an entrepreneur is that you could get into a place of paralysis in planning. I have to have the business plan perfect. No, you don't. The only thing you have to be able to answer is why. That's it. You don't need all the other stuff is easy. You could hire people for that and figure it out. So when I met Foster Freeze in a stairwell, I had no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. I decided I was going to take a gap year off college. Ended up being, again, 11 gap years. It's an ongoing, it's a gap decade. I had no idea what I was doing, but I had passion and I had the why. My why was very simple. I love America and we're losing it. I want to do something about it. That was, that was my answer. And he was like, well, what are you going to do? And I could throw out all these ideas and they were, half of them were awful. But he sensed the passion because I had the why that was configured correctly. If you understand your why, you can get through any, any what or how, any. And so when you, when you try to go into business as an entrepreneur and you're thinking about all the obstacles or, you know, I have to perfectly plan this, you understand that is a prison mindset. If you, if you bet on yourself in an entrepreneurial scenario, you're going to be adjusting along the way anyway. And you're like, oh, well this or that, or you're going to be learning in real time. But it requires you to first take that, that first step. And that's what we did at Turning Point USA. I mean, I didn't know how to do payroll or hire people or fire people or any of it. But you learn along the way and that's the other thing. Surround yourself with successful people that are ethical. You, you end up being the average of who you spend, the five people you spend the most time with. So another kind of homework assignment for you, write down who you spend time with. The five most people you spend time with, that's who you are. So if you spend time with gossipers, with low energy complainers, if you spend time with people that are always kind of getting a buck for free, that's who you're going to be. But if you spend time around people like Patrick Bet-David, people that are high energy, that are ethical, that are pushing boundaries, looking for solutions, that is going to rub off on you. Audit your relationships and purge the people that are weighing you down. You will become better because of it. Crazy. Yes, for 10 grand, you guys got to ask people for $1.99. So let's talk about that. So when you are recruiting people to Turning Point USA, it's a nonprofit. There's not a lot of upside there. We have a lot of upside here. You could be a millionaire. You could be financially free and not so much in the nonprofit world. So what message are you selling people to come on board of Turning Point USA? Who's the enemy? How do you retain them? And what's the upside for them to want to stick with you? Yeah, it's a great question. I mean, so in the nonprofit world, there's a lot of comfort. There's a lot of just slow moving. We're entrepreneurs. We move super fast. That's why we've gone from $0 to $80 million in revenue in 11 years. And we're the largest in the conservative space because we bring kind of this entrepreneurial disruptive mentality to a space that is otherwise honestly boring and comfortable. We're able to attract the best talent, not because I can pay them the best. If they want to go make more money, go work for Goldman Sachs. Go work for Google. But do you know what I tell them? You're never going to have to be asked your pronouns at Turning Point. You're not going to have to go through some stupid struggle session and you get to actually wake up every single day and be fulfilled. Your soul will be fed and watered in a way that you would be not even close to at a regular corporate job. At Turning Point USA, we have the best staff in the country that works their tails off because every single day they could say, I am waking up to save America. I am waking up to do the work to help make sure my grandkids can live in a free society. And I've got to be honest, the upside has just been tremendous and we're able to recruit great talent. We're able to get people engaged and involved. We have members of Congress now. Many of you know Candace Owens, who got her start at Turning Point USA. A great and powerful voice. If you get the why correctly, then that purpose fills the void in a very, very powerful way. Candace Owens just interviewed Andrew Tate. Our CEO flew to Romania to interview Andrew Tate. His message seems to be suppressed. He just finally got released from home arrest. What do you think is keeping the powers that be afraid of that message that Andrew Tate is bringing out to the world? Yeah, I mean, look, Andrew is a very smart man, and I'm not going to get into all the accusations against him. I don't know the truth, but we'll find out. But I will say this, what he says is so powerful. And let's emphasize on that. What Andrew Tate is doing is he's communicating a warning of what happens when society becomes too feminine. Now, if I offend you with this, good, because honestly, it's the truth. And you need to hear it. So by the way, for the ladies in the audience, I would venture a guess you are underwhelmed by the feminization of American men as it's happening around you. I hear it all the time. So a society can become too feminine. It also can become too masculine. OK, so we know what happens when a society becomes too masculine. You get Mussolini, right? You get too dictatorial, too rigid. That's where you, quote unquote, get the kind of authoritarianism that we went against. But have we ever thought deeply? What happens when a society archetypically becomes too feminine? That's an interesting question, isn't it? Well, all of a sudden, you get the complete disregard for rules, customs, and guardrails, because you want to accept all things. You get feelings-based societal governance over rationality-based societal governance. It is the man's job in a marriage when you raise a child to say no. That is my job as a father. No, no, no, no, no. In a society when you do not have people saying no, really bad ideas start to metastasize and infect the entire culture. And so let's just use a great example. It is, in my personal opinion, and I think in the opinion of the natural law, evil and wrong to support the chemical castration of children under the guise of gender-affirming care. Absolutely, absolutely. It's evil and wrong. A masculine energy would say, we're not putting up with this. It's not going to happen. No, no, no. A feminine energy would say, I want to care for them. I want to have compassion for them. I want to have compassion too. You know how you have compassion? Not by chopping off their balls, okay? Or getting them lupron. So look, Andrew Tate, controversial figure, but honestly, is Andrew Tate saying anything that 30 years ago would not have been commonplace to say? We are seeing the American man, porn addicted, lowest testosterone rates in 30 or 40 years, least married, least purpose, most suicidal in history. Why? It's because our society is configured towards collapsing the American man. That's bad for men. It's bad for women. It's bad for our country. And that's, I think, one of the reasons why Andrew Tate has become so unbelievably successful is he does it in an eloquent and charismatic way with a lot of wisdom. And if you wanted to conquer a country, you would have the men start becoming women and killing themselves. When you're looking at, whew, that was, yeah, thank you so much for that. Unbelievable. When you're looking at where men are today, you just got married. A couple years now? Yeah. Okay. So for the singles that's here, how did you go about finding your wife, your spouse, your partner? Yeah, I'm a big fan of marriage. And if you're not married, I highly encourage it. So here's, and have as many kids as you possibly can. By the way, having kids is like the best thing ever. Look, if you know anything about my podcast or my public commentary, I tend to push back against like prevailing garbage in the media. I think hookup culture is so bad for society. I think that overindulging in these hookup apps is so terrible. I think pornography is destroying American men at such high levels. And again, I'm not moralizing in this sense. Like I literally mean this, that if you're struggling with it, I totally get it. These are predatory products. I'm just telling you, you can live a deeper life if you don't engage in these things. Look, from a biblical standpoint, I think marriage is one of the most awesome things that God has given us. And I don't think we do a good enough job of celebrating marriage in our society. I don't think we lift it up as this beautiful ideal. And you know, I went to a college campus recently and they said, you know, I asked them a very simple question, what is a woman? They couldn't answer the question, obviously, because they're so smart, they can't answer the most basic stuff. And if you want to know what a woman is, marry one. You'll find out very quickly. And this idea that men and women are exactly the same, only unmarried people could come up with an idea as stupid as that. Men and women are exactly the same, right? Get married for like a week. And what you realize is in marriage, it is two polar opposite type of, not polar opposite in some ways, but opposite parts that come together in a union for a purpose. And it's not just the purpose of raising children, right? It's the purpose of fighting for the good, the true and the beautiful, of supporting one another, of trying to honor the divine. And you don't get that just through a Tinder date. That's shallow. That's just seeking an orgasm. Like, okay, anyone can do that. Here's a good rule for life. The hard things are the beautiful things. Things that require work are going to nourish your soul a lot more than like, oh, I met this person at a Vegas bar. Be careful, by the way, with that. And by the way, if you did that last night, like, okay, you know, God forgives, whatever. So just ask for forgiveness and God will give it to you generously. I mean that like, honestly, we're all sinners. What I'm trying to get at though is when you get married, you realize like, wow, my life was completely empty before that. And there's a reason why the dress for the man is the same at a wedding and a funeral. You ever think about this? Because you're saying goodbye to your previous self. The woman is the icon, the symbol of beauty, almost always in all white, right? Ascendant. The man is usually in black and white, like he's attending somebody's death because it is his death. No, but think about it. It's the death of the bachelor mindset. It's the death of promiscuity. It's the death of the wandering eye. It's the death of immoral behavior. It's the death of texting girls casually. It's the death of I get to do what I want to do. It's the death of just going to the bar with friends. It's the death of acting like an infant. It's the death of playing video games till 1am. And it's the birth of a man. Boom. Hit a chord there, bro. So you brought up the Bible. Let's go down that road. You brought up the Bible, let's go down that road. I often look at Proverbs and Ecclesiastes as a way to model my life. The same author, Solomon. And he was the son of David. And he was hanging out with Bathsheba and etc. And Solomon did not finish well. But that's correct, right? Because David had mighty men, Solomon had mighty women. Lots of them. Lots of them. So but Proverbs 31 also is a great framework for women of noble character. And so when I'm looking at my wife, like, wow, she checks off all the boxes. And I'm thinking about as a man and his perspective, because the way I commit to my wife is the way I commit to my business. How you do one thing is how you do everything. And when you're looking at the Bible in terms of finance and money, God and money, a lot of people are raising and thinking that, hey, Charlie, you've got a lot of money. It's a sin. You should just be content. Relax. You shouldn't be so damn ambitious. God's going to provide. What would you say to Christian and believers out there that being rich is a sin? So first of all, I love the word. And if you're not in relationship with Jesus Christ, I encourage you to do that. It'll change your life. And I want to see you guys in heaven. So and if you're not convinced and you're like, oh, boy, I didn't come here to hear religion. Well, look, God loves you so much that he would even bring you to Las Vegas to hear about his son. So I came here to do things that I will not do at home. Too bad you're hearing about Jesus Christ. You're getting it right here. OK, so I love the word so much. The more you read the word, the more it reads you. It's this relationship. It's infinitely deep. The harmony, the harmonizing of the scriptures. And I've been doing a deep study of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. But that's we could talk about that if you want. You're talking about two things. Number one is a misreading of Jesus's commandment around money. He says the love of money is the root of all evil. OK, none of you should love money. You should not. Instead, you should understand money is a tool. It's a it comes from a Greek word technique, a technology. You can use it for good or you could use it for bad now. But what does Jesus say about multiplication? This is a much more important teaching. The parable of the talents is one of the strongest lessons towards modern economy and entrepreneurs. If you're not familiar with the parable of the talents, Jesus, our Lord, is talking to his disciples about a scenario apparently talked in parables. And it was a way that we could better understand what God wants to tell us. So Jesus says, look, there's three people. OK, and they're all given a certain distribution. And by the way, this is totally true. If I pick three random people and I brought them up on stage and I said, you get five dollars, you get five dollars and you get five dollars a day later, someone would have zero dollars, someone would have twenty dollars and someone would have one hundred dollars. And in the parable of the talents. One of the people hides their money right under a rock. Another person modestly multiplies and another person tremendously multiplies that money. So the person that hid their talent. Now, a talent can actually be applicable to your actual talents or money. So it actually in the story meant money who did nothing with it, who hid it under a rock, received condemnation in the parable. How dare you do nothing with what God has given you? Every single one of you. This is why I can't stand when people say follow your heart. That's bad advice. Don't do that. OK, I'm going to do what I love. Don't do that. Do what you're good at. Every single one of you has a God given skill, every single one of you. So you might say, well, Charlie, I don't know what my skill is. What do people compliment you on? That is different. Maybe you're good at noticing, good at writing, good at speaking, good at organizing, good at empathizing, good at whatever it is. Find that skill that you don't truly hate and then pursue that. Whatever it is. For me, my number one love would be college football. Like, OK, but yeah, right. Yeah. Got one college world fan. That's great. But it's not the thing I'm best at. I enjoy what I do, and obviously I've learned to love it, but I'm good at speaking. I'm good at communicating. I'm good at writing. I'm good at doing these things. And so in the parable of the talents, Christ wants you to identify what God has given you. And to take it and make more of it and to multiply it. And that is across the board, including financially. Now, I'm not going to do the whole, like, prosperity gospel thing where God wants you to be rich and all this. I could tell you, God does not want you to be sitting still. That is a fact. And I'll prove it to you. All of us need to read Genesis 12 and the story of Abram. And that applies especially to men, but applies to women, too. Get off your tail, leave your father's home and go on an adventure. Genesis 12 is this incredible thing. So it's the city of Babel and Genesis. Sorry, I could go rock rocket. Genesis 11 is this crazy story. City of Babel. They want to build a one world government. God says not so fast. Sound familiar anyway. So Genesis 12, you hear about this guy, Abram, living at his parents' home till his, like, 70s, like, sitting around. And God says, get up, go on an adventure. And boy, was it ever an adventure. God does not want you to be comfortable. He wants you, as it says in Joshua 1, 9, be strong and courageous to go forth. Do you think Moses was thrilled when he was in Midian? He had a great life. Father-in-law likes him. That's not always the case. I, thankfully, it is for me. But if you get married, you'll realize that. Father-in-law likes him, right? Jethro, everything's great. And he's just going for a stroll. And that darn bush had to be on fire. And his life changed forever. In fact, it changed so much that in Numbers and Deuteronomy, Moses repeatedly says, God, why did you make me do this? These people won't stop complaining. These people are the worst. He's talking about the Hebrews. He's like, why? And God says, because I told you. And I am who I am. Tough luck. But he called them on an adventure that changed human history. Time and time again, the heroes of the Bible are people that leave comfort and they go towards adversity. They leave what is easy and they go towards what is good. And that is a call for each and one of your lives. Come on. Come on. And speaking of scripture, 1 Timothy 4-12 says, don't let anyone look down on you because you are young. But set an example for the believers in speech and conduct and love and faith and impurity. Charlie, you're 29 years old. I get the top 10 questions I've been personally asked here down the hallway. Matt, how do I get to people because I'm young? How do I get people to believe me because I'm young? It didn't seem like you've had a problem with that. Yeah, so here's my advice, especially if you hear that a lot. Every single one of you now, thanks to these literal supercomputers, for no charge, you can take learning very seriously. Every single one of you should do this. If you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to be a lifelong learner. You should be reading at least 50 books a year. You should be listening to fulfilling soul-enriching content for two hours a day. And you should cut out all of the soul-depraving Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, all that. So you only have so much time. So you have to choose not just what you eat physically, but are you going to consume junk food in television, junk food in radio, junk food in podcasting? You want to be taken seriously? Read 50 books over the next decade. That's 500 books, 50 books a year for the next decade. That's 500 books on entrepreneurial and American history, on finance, on economics. There's no lack of them, right? And they're all out there. By the way, most of them, they're like 20 bucks a pop, but if you want to, there's like free versions, there's YouTube lectures. There is no excuse for anybody in this room to not take learning seriously. So there's two ways. So let's talk about wisdom, right? We have Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Proverbs is the book of wisdom. So Solomon, God comes on to Solomon. Solomon, what do you want? He says, I want wisdom. And so what is wisdom? Wisdom is the knowledge of things that don't change. Wisdom is the knowledge of eternal truths. Wisdom are things that will be just as true 100 years from now as they were 200 years prior. Knowledge can change, right? Knowledge is facts and figures, who's the governor of this center, that's important. But wisdom is answering much more important questions. What is good? What is evil? What is our relationship with God? Why are we here? What is my purpose? Where am I going after I die? What is love? What is mercy? What is justice? What is prudence? What is temperance? Where are the best people living? Who are the worst people living? What are the best form of governments? These are things that matter a lot more than facts and figures that you could recite quickly just to take a test. Every single one of you has in front of you an ability to obtain wisdom. So there's two ways to get wisdom. One is through a lot of life experience, multi-decades of suffering, and you might get some wisdom. Or you can pursue texts, authors, and writers that have presented these things, the Bible being one of them. But there is an unlimited canon in the Western tradition that is accessible to each and every one of you. That you're like, wow, I never thought of that before. And where does wisdom truly begin? Wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord, understanding that there is a God and you are not him. So those two truths, and if I may just say one other thing on this, why are college campuses some of the most idiotic environments on the planet? Because they don't honor God and without God there is no wisdom. These are godless institutions where they are constantly scrapping and searching for answers when it's accessible to each and every one of us. So if you want to be taken seriously as a young person, listen more than you speak, read more than you project. So delete your social media apps on your phone and instead dive deep into the great ideas. When I say, Charlie, how do I do this? So I've partnered with Hillsdale College, free resource, charlieforhillsdale.com. It's charliefforhillsdale.com. 35 online courses, they'll enrich your life significantly from the Bible to Aristotle to American history. If you are a lifelong learner, you will be successful and you will be an accomplished entrepreneur. That's awesome. I think there's some people here that went to Hillsdale College too as well. So Greg and Beth Smith, I think when they went to Hillsdale College, they were here. When you're looking at children, you're around Trump a lot. You know, we're talking about accessibility. You know, you just did an event in Florida a few weeks ago where the top conservative candidates, presidential candidates were on stage rocking the stage and you're going on PBD podcast talking about, I text DeSantis at camp, but it takes me a minute. But I call Trump and he picks up.

"Mired back in traffic and found himself in some trouble. I thought that the 12 car was one of those guys that I did not expect to run well, but did. So, you know, do you credit their driving style? I can't imagine they're driving style change too much. They may have learned a bit from last year, but also their car could be a little faster than it was the year before or previous years. So I'm kind of that's what I say by expectations at Fontana. If that makes sense. And then also just how they ran at Vegas. Those are two things that I guess I'm looking at just short term to go off of. Well, I mean, normally we'd look to start with some of the favorites and you talked about Kyle and Kyle, but I think rather than starting there, we may as well continue along that same wavelength and thought process with the driver that's actually taken a substantial amount of pre week money. We had one prominent shop out here in Vegas open Ryan Blaney as high as 12. That price now down to 7 to one at the time of recording and you've seen the rest of the market kind of fall in line. It's still doesn't make Blaney the favor and there are some ten to ones that are available, but it puts them in that rarefied air saying, look, there are professional bettors that recognize the speed the 12 has shown and know he is going to be relevant despite not having a points race victory in the current next gen car. You look at Blaney back to back disappointing results here in Vegas last year, finished 28th in the fall, 36 in the spring, three previous trips he'd had top ten finishes in each race, and we look at the 2022 comp tracks, nothing to write home about there. What is leading in your opinion professional betters in the case you're kind of making, I think, indirectly, for Ryan Blaney to be a car that we should all be paying attention to before they unload and get on the track this weekend. He was, in my opinion, the best car at that Vegas race. And I know you look at the box score, you don't quite see, you don't see the top driver rating, and you don't see that maybe the most fast laps. You see the second most fast laps. And you obviously don't have the finish, but he obviously got caught up in some late race stuff where it guys and maybe stayed out on tires. They lost some, and by the way, this was a question, Richard west asked about is playing these pit crew going to get it together. Listen, Blaine is a guy that really needs that clean air. And he had it in that second Vegas race, and he kind of maintained that kind of top 5 running order. He was able to maybe, you know, he was able to lose a spot or two on restarts in the last year's Vegas race. And still get back to the lead. Now, if you put him back in 20th, it's going to take him a long time to get there. You won't see what happened at Fontana where Kyle Busch just raced back to the top 5, like it was nothing. Blaney has to be a little bit more methodical. His car needs to be, I guess, for a lack of more perfect than Kyle Busch needs in order to make these passes. So I'm hoping I'm pulling for Blaney. He's just one of those guys where I feel like if he loses spots, he just, he doesn't have that. He doesn't get pissed off and just go back and get those spots on a restart. So I think he needs to get a little bit more Gritty, but ultimately, if he qualifies well, this is a great track for Penske just in general or Ford's in general. I think that you could see him run top three all day. I mean, we may as well stay in the Penske camp and look at Ryan Blaney's teammate Joey Logano who has had a lot of success here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the past. The most recent data point, Joey Logano, one here in the fall, spent the entire race inside the top 15, 32 laps led, tied him with Tyler Reddick and were behind only Ross Chastain. His driver rating of one 30.6, the best in the field. And when we look at track history, hey, look, he's been the model of consistency with what he's been able to do. And while the comp tracks that you talked about lightly using Kansas and Charlotte as litmus tests weren't exactly ideal, this is a track where the 22 is going to feel extremely comfortable. And when he unloads, have to imagine he's got his eyes on the prize, thinking he's going to grab the checkered flag and you're seeing Joey Logano price right now widely available. Let's call it what it is. 7 to one on the low end upwards of 9. Yeah, I've even seen some tens on Logano. I don't know if those have moved since this morning. But if you just look at his last 14 starts there, his average starting spot is 7.1 his average finish is 6 and a half. He's got three wins in 7 top 5s. So clearly this is a comfortable place for Joey Logano. I anticipate him to qualify well. I don't know that he'll necessarily put it on the pole, but he will be mixing it up anywhere from third to 5th place all day. I imagine. You know, at the worst. So he showed great speed at Fontana, a place where he's been kind of on and off fast. So very consistent there. Just speed in the race car. I fully expect him to be competing for the win this weekend. I mean, 11 top tens out of 14 starts there. The last 14. So definitely comfortable place for him. And last year when he won, he was probably second or third best car, but man, The X Factor and Paul Wolfe, I mean, he pitted late when they were, I think they were running like 9th, and he was willing to bring the cars down pit road when a lot of the leaders didn't. And I think he restarted like 13th, got a quick caution, and it wasn't long before he was hunting Chastain, and he made Chastain looked like he was standing still. And the cool part about this is his tires were only 13 lap fresher tires. You used to not see that at Vegas. So this is great, tire wear. We love tire wear. So to see Vegas start to wear out a little bit and kind of punch the tires a little bit. Definitely adds another layer because some people will be taking two tires, some people taking four, some people will be staying out. So it adds a little bit of strategy, which if you're live betting and you're paying attention, you could find some profits there. Have to imagine that if NASCAR sees too much tire fall off at Vegas that we're gonna have a repay. Oh gosh. Just heaven forbid that we get tire wear tracks that create slightly better racing, but it has definitely been a lot more entertaining over the last couple of installments in Vegas than what we've seen in the past. From Team Penske, let's go back to the top of the board and we can talk about the co favorites, the Kyle and Kyle show that you alluded to early on in stage one. When you look at their pricing here, Kyle Busch as low as 6 to one, you can find some 7s Kyle Larson very similarly priced. And we can start with Kyle Busch, one career win here in 23 cup starts, but 5 straight finishes of 6 they're better at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, three poles, 11 top 5 finishes, 311 laps led, and

"Different set almost whole different set of tracks Yeah i don't know. I'm not a i won't say that i'm a bigger Del mar or took a. I mean i don't i like both those tracks but I don't know that it is probably a disadvantage because there's certainly some people that follow either or both of those a lot more than i do. So i don't know that it's particularly gonna help me but it's gonna be. There's gonna be some great racing obvious time of year that maybe we didn't have in january and february. So i would say. I mean even though we get we get fairgrounds. And and we get tampa and and we get Gulfstream bad. Santa anita. Don't want the oakland but but I'm i'm approaching turf. The turf options are going to be. I mean that much more pronounced. Yeah i would think. I think this this should play into the hands of of of the grass players. Yeah i'm with you i agree. I can't say that that's particularly beneficial to meet but I mean i'm fine with it. But not i just think there's folks that really those two tracks more than i do so i don't know that i'm a whatever it is what it is. I'm happy. I think it's gonna be great and i'm excited to take on that topic. Actually it's interesting and trae contributing to the hr p the sam houston race park signal when you were nats. You're your home track. Essentially does it. Does it provide a little bit more of a of a direction to consider the be- the be- circuit tracks the the remington. 's the you know what we're doing. We're having tremendously fund time. The last few years with indiana which is so playable with these big fields and with the low takeout canterbury has has made themselves important to look at You gotta you gotta get used to. In both cases you gotta get used to indiana bread. Pedigrees and and minnesota bread pedigrees. But it's no different than than any other you know. Adapt adapting to any other kind of a of a circuit. Or you know a specific especially regionally i. I was all in with with sam. Houston i mean. That's i mean for seven months really because we took on the roy. Thomas meet with the quarter horses so for basically seven months You know. I was as i pointed out earlier that Frankly is kind of pointing out. I go into a lot of detail. It takes me a lot of time to To prepare for the sharpie time the show we do beforehand. And then the previews and so i really don't have the time to I i haven't played his little concerned about this. I haven't played doe maar and so much as some of the tracks.

I can't make it because i have a hearing or court or whatever they they're totally cool but so but there's only so much time in the day and so i just haven't been able to focus on because i've been focusing on those You well certainly. Sam houston And and the local circuits in preparation for this weekend. What advance work. I'm not sure if it was you. Or somebody. Sam sherman that might have The bite of the set the people you know fridays. Pp's arouse that. Was you have a chance work. What kind of advance work either. For for their. There's plenty of people listening. That are coming here tomorrow. Or thursday and Might be their first time. What is the the blueprint for getting ready for. Friday saturday and is a great question that i get asked a lot and i have a an answer. I mean the first time. I qualified nineteen years ago with your bally's and i think i came thursday night the day before And i'm for me i i. I don't even know didn't even know you're on the air. I'm all out of whack right. My body doesn't know what time it is. Where and woke up at four thirty. And i thought you know started to get my day going this morning so it took me. I was totally out of whack the first year and then wasn't really prepared zip. I'm at home. i'm still getting calls from clients. I'm getting you know kids events that have to you know attend. I don't let mine are off to college now. So let's not as big an issue. But there's too many distractions. So that's why i'm here with you on a tuesday instead of At home i came out yesterday. And i'd encourage folks. Well there's two ways there's nothing wrong with the people that say six hundred people in this event. I'm going to go to vegas and have a great time. If that's what you wanna do great. But i tried to kind of treat it like a like a job and i tried to come here. Set up a printer my computer. I'm i mean. I'm set up in my room and i just i hope it for three days. I don't really need dinner with my friends. But i don't have gambled yet have been here for twenty four hours haven't gambled yet So i'd really focused on. Just i mean. That's why i'm here trying to well and i've had a lot of bad years where that didn't work and it gets frustrating but You know paid off last year had a good finish And so. I'm trying to kind of redo the same thing so i didn't. It just depends on what your goal is right. If you're here to have a good time we'll go party with your friends and you know. Shoot craps and have a good time but if you're here to try to to finish well then i'd encourage folks to get out early. You can might be too late this year but you can get acclimated and And just work work work when it gets to saturday night or friday night and you're trying to go through the saturday. Pp's if you haven't already gone through them. I can't do it the way i handicap. I couldn't do it. I'm too tired too much to do. I already have to have gone through them and have a kind of a game plan. What am i gonna do. If i'm had a good first day. What am i gonna do. If i had a bad first day and already have a good concept what i'm going to do and i'm just fine tune in on friday night whereas some people are trying to figure it all out and trying to integrate. The race is all on friday or saturday nights too late. Obviously start with the mandatory. And that is that the first set or do you do you go through. And it doesn't matter you're gonna you're gonna review all the cards and try to identify the horses in a first pass. What's that process like. Well when i'm doing it. Like now. I don't know what the main stories are. So i'm just going through them all Trying to kind of handicap. All the races. That i i think i'm likely to play it as a general rule. I don't really even look at six horsfield Just because even if you're right and you get the place isn't gonna pay much and it's just usually. It's that's like the last thing that's down the road and then there's certain tracks maybe that you know. I have experience with it. I don't want to bad mouth any. But i just know from statistics that don't do well as contract so i try to kind of focus on those as much. So i'd say spend my time hitting the tracks and the in types of races that i like hard But i'll i won't some people say player one or two tracks and that hasn't been. That's not something that i do. But i i could certainly see if you're if you're all in toko year and that's where you know the best. That's where he ought to focus. Is there a particular type of race that draws your attention more than others. seven eighths No big fields Because it's just hard to find those those big prices in the smaller fields obviously But no i. I i you know some people say there. I never maiden first time starter specialist. I you know. I i tend to stay away from those see but but i'll hit one last year. That went well. So i mean i. I don't know that. I have a type of race Just certain tracks said i do. I know that. I do better with so i try to focus on those but i don't really care if a grade one stakes or five thousand claimer. I mean doesn't impact me as much Morning y price Range Are are you. are you working to.

I'm anxious to hear from jay primin and what jays think Thinks about the way he ran and granted he was on the front end and had to repel the challenges but even though he's american pharaoh i i got the sense that he may be he may be at least for now a little distance limited. I i don't know how far that god's gonna wanna go forbidden kingdom. We'll see out of a five star mayor and you can't obviously you can't complain too much About winning it first.

The that's a that that is going to be a hot hot race. Going forward without a doubt. The other maiden winner our tendency this time of year is always to be focused on the on the two year olds right. But the tap it of nj foxwoods that subconscious. That's a horse. Fourth career start feels like a horse that has got plenty of side yet and was just never whenever anybody tried to come to to him and they let me see when he was gelded. This source curious. Who's gelded in june after After that third start. And so yeah. That was a that. Was a change. subconscious so. This may be. This may be a nice This may be the new united. I think i even made that suggestion. that was an eyesore. That was a nice win that you might not have the same. And you know the the horses behind. There was a scrum behind subconscious. In that maiden race including eric johnson's barbed-wire who had made the transition to turf in his last start. Buckle mo- not of an empire maker the micro bread barbed-wire nice This race you. You're just always we're always looking at At at the two year olds here. The horse that phil d'amato talked about He seemed excited was a wasn't wasn't as fast a race. The phillies Wasn't this vast erase as the as the boys as forbidden kingdom. But i mean she. She did well and she. She just ran away from that. That bunch in the opener. From sunday i mentioned to. You had the green flash lieutenant. Dan the grays gelding of dick. Alexander's steve miata. Which money franko off. Second off a long layoff in fact The five year old is now the one. Both of his starts as an older horse that he likes. Delmar likes the del mar turf. Sprint and that you know that race. Now that i'm just looking at that. You got the first triple digit buyer. I think In this right. Yeah hundred fire for lieutenant. Dan the so there's a horse that is to want to try to calibrate is gonna wanna try sure to shoulder his way into into the breeders cup sprint. By the way. That was not such a crazy idea. That i had for for for phil d'amato yesterday with going global that th. That's that's certainly could do. Pretty much anything But yeah that that From sunday and they had a good crowd sunday we were over. We'd went back over The del mar and Spent a little banana data.

I picked them forth and had them as a c. And it was the key to hitting the cross country There there was plenty to like about astronaut. Coming into this and in a lot of ways astronaut was the turf version. Not not that. He moved from the dirt. But in some ways you know. He was as appealing and at that price.

"Just them really good here and take some steps which I think most of these guys did and then to get the Schroeder thing right in the middle of it. Really, we kick that around already, but that really solidified the roster in my eyes off. I can't I kicked around a little bit like how the Celtics looking with some Scouts here. I think a few of them said, they're mostly looking the same but you know, there were a few who really liked what the Celtics did this offseason, especially on the defensive end of the floor. So we'll see where that goes. The shorter things going to be interesting like you really do hear a little bit of everything about him out here and I did write about that for bsj today. It's like it's kind of like a fifty-fifty coin toss thing for the Celtics. This could go really good or really bad in here. Yeah. Well because if it goes bad they can pull the plug very quickly and not quite as page. As pulling the plug on a lot of things when they go bad. So there's a shrewish 5-9. Yep. Now, not dead money from what you're right. It is interesting though. You're right, the, the overall perception of the team a week ago versus now you get some good Vegas League stuff. You got to see Nesmith, do some things that made you feel good. And again, even in a non a cold shooting game. He's still in a couple of moments tonight where he took it to the basket and stuff you like to see he was great on the defense. He was great rebounding. The ball again, Pritchard, obviously played the way he played, so you feel good about things and then the Schroeder thing I think helped you feel that the rock face a little bit solidified. Yeah. I said two weeks ago. This teams might not make the playoffs and I don't feel that way anymore. Like I think I applied some of their needs with Schroeder and the young guys look good to me. Especially Pritchard in Nesmith. So those three things really did it for me to just take them up a little Notch. Maybe at that like 5 6 c e. Right. Now it changed the perception and the fiber on the team, you know, which is, which is a good thing. I think everybody needed some Vibes. After just the way, the offseason went down just didn't offer, you know, you know, and didn't really seem like things were going the way people wanted them to. So, yeah, all in all a positive. We could good week of coverage. Thanks to Bobby. Thanks to sharrod, down in Vegas, and double duty here, jumping on the show and chasing those guys around and checking out games, you guys checking out more games tonight.

"Threes, his rookie. Well, didn't he? He had a thumb injury on his shooting hand, right? That altered his shot in in college. So here's tinkering with that for a little bit. We're not in kind of, we're not in markelle fultz, like, you know, it's not broken territory. You just needed some tweaking and some time to practice a little bit. I also think again, relative to expectations wage. Have to take into consideration, 14 pics, typically our rotation players, all you're looking for from Romeo to be a successful player and pick given his draft slot is someone who can play 18, to 20 minutes a night, and be a 5 through 8 rotational sort of player, which is not Beyond, you know, which is not totally ridiculous to think that he can, he can still get there. What you're hoping was when he was drafted. It was a guy whose stock fell so you might have been getting a top five top-eight Talent at that spot, which is why people I think are like well off to see him do a little bit more and be a little bit better. It may never happen if you but if you get a guy who's getting you seventeen eighteen twenty minutes a night. I think that that's that's good. still think there's something there. There's a thing I just you know, you want to see it. You see those little flashes in your like, you know, I don't know. I don't know again. I'm not selling but I I wouldn't be stunned. If it goes either way, twenty one. You talked about the games that he's Twenty-One too. So that way he had coming in at nineteen was huge on what happened over the last two years, cuz he's still very young, some guys coming in the league at the age. He's at right now. Yeah. Yeah, I mean is how it's Richard Richards definitely older. Right. Be purchased like 23, I think. Now what did Pritchard do today he went and played like in a family or something. That is not great. Breaking news. He played in program today and scored ninety-two points, probably at the same exact time as the salesperson. So his, his previous, his previous engagement was like the play in some way, charity game or whatever. That's awesome. That's awesome. And we know he got his running today. That's so he's the best. Is that real? Cuz I've seen it all over Twitter, Twitter, but I haven't seen it. It's gotta be. If everyone's talking about it. I don't know. I mean it is, I don't know if it's just, I was waiting to see it from somewhere, but I haven't seen anything yet. That is hilarious. If if that's the case. And again, someone saying it to Stanley team. It was like a family. Something, you know, that's that would be really funny if that was his prior engagement..

"Do? But we're right. We're here. Unlike unlike some, there are those of us who don't take days off to me, but we're not going to do names on. This isn't Romeo in Prichard. Yeah. This isn't, you know, Jimmy Jimmy, he's got a social life. Okay, and you know, Joe has a solid. He was he was he was on the road last last last game and he pinch-hit, which was good. So this is it. This is it for Bobby Sherrod staying for the whole Freight here, but Celtics beat the Sixers. It's going to be at the title game. Looks like they're going to the title. Get a little bling. Yeah. Going to the title game. I wonder, I bet you. No one's going to play in that, right? I don't know, man. I mean they're it's it's funny because I mean even the guys that we are looking for the to play major roles. Even the guys who are home made rolls are Ballin Out. I mean, Sam houses Baldwin Bruno, Fernando Ballin you start going down the line. Everyone pretty much stepping on. The floor is getting it done. I'm getting real. Jae Crowder Vibes off Bruno, Fernando. You know what? I mean? I'm glad that's just but different position. I just like, it's the energy, the attitude. He's going back and forth, you know, no better rate down at all like you. I like the runs through guys. I I've seen him bear over about three guys in the summer league and he's, he's physically imposing. He's going to be 240-250, every month. They make C puts a lump on it. Whether it's a two-handed slams of that block at The Rim. He was really good in this game. And I'm glad he finally had a big rebounding game cuz he'd be to 3 today. Went out and got eleven. So I was home. That's what I want to see him. Do most is be able to eat up some boards. Cuz, you know, the parrot. Thirty six numbers were really good on the rebounding front last year. Bobby loves his numbers. He does that. That was my big issue with Bruno to begin with. I just didn't think it's a very good rebounder and gave her every time he played other than tonight. He wasn't. So I give him props for Ashley step in this game. But, but listen, I'm going to I'm investing some of them early to weigh stock is Sam, Houser. I think he's going to be really good. I'm I'm buying. I'm buying the shots. Come On, Come Aboard. I'm not waiting. I'm not waiting on this one. There is no reason. There is no reason. Like, you need Specialists. There is no reason someone like this. Can't come in and just come in to do. What he does not make shots. You know what? You know, what? Here's the thing about him though. I mean, he he's obviously his shot-making is awesome. But he does so many little things that you don't necessarily pay a ton of attention to like he forced a 20 per second violation. You just simply not allowing a guy to pick up the ball cleanly after he jumped a little bit little things like that when you're going through your sky and Reporting when you're you're reviewing video with the team and you're trying to figure out damn, should I really put him down? Because he's not exactly Mister Lockdown, Defender. Hustle plays like that. Are going to get him in his with the South. And he's not going to, he's not going to play a ton of Menace, that's not going to happen. But I do think when he does get his opportunity, he's going to do is, just made shots. Well, that I don't doubt that run seeing more elements to his game, but it's funny, like we're sitting here and everyone was begging to turn Aaron Nesmith into your Duncan Robinson. You might have your name Robinson without somewhere in Nesmith into him..
