Episode 28: Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens And More

"And episode number twenty eight in the pinstripe planes podcast is brought to you by the Yankees tweet that started off with top of the morning because they're in London. The only problem being top of the morning is Irish saying. Welcome to the pinstripe lanes podcast. Here's radio host at lifelong Yankees fan, ralphie overs. Are we? All we all have our mistakes happens to the best of us. Welcome to episode number twenty eight of the pinstripe planes podcast. I'm ralphie Aversa. You can find us at pinstripe lanes on all your favorite social networks at ralphie Aversa. And of course, thank you for rating reviewing and subscribing. The Yankees are in London as we speak. Did you see they have obviously a number of things number of vents and whatnot planned around the two games that they're gonna play Saturday and Sunday? We get a one five start, and then a ten AM start Sunday morning, which I think, is going to be kind of cool. They put on a clinic today for little leaguers, across the pond and the Yankees, bringing out all the heavy artillery here, here is the list of players that were there a-rod Nick Swisher Matsu, e Andy Pettitte, Andrew Eugene Pettit. Mariana Rivera, Aaron Boone was there Cashman, and a number of Yankee brass or there in Reginald's. Number forty four Mr. Tober himself. Reggie Jackson was there as well. Also one by the way, obviously, I'm not in London for the series. We'll be watching both games though especially that Sunday morning game. I'm kind of looking forward to waking up and catching the little Sunday morning. They were wearing these awesome Nike sweatsuits jumpsuits on their way out across the pond. I believe at least the tops of those the zip up. Hoodies were sold that one time. I don't know if they were on fanatics and or the Yankee store through the Nike website. But I do remember those being sold to start the season. I can't find him now to save the life of me. So either a they sold out or be. They got pulled off the shelves, and now they're going to get put back on and marked up because they're probably gonna sell pretty quickly. They are pretty dope. I do have to say that we have a great episode plan for you. I'm a little worse for the wear. It's been a very crazy week. I spent the weekend in Connecticut at Mohegan sun. That's why I spoke with. Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens, and Sierra, all of whom you'll hear from. Yes. Even sierra. You'll find out why in just a little bit here on the pinstripe planes podcast, by the way, I also spoke with khloe Kardashian up at Mohegan sun, you will not hear from khloe. On the planes podcast. I if you go to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram online, though, you could see that interview if if you. If that Piques our interest. So. Yeah, it's been a crazy week though I was up this past week at Mohegan sun in Connecticut for that Monday. I covered a red carpet for dish network out to speak with Russell Crowe and knew me. Watts new Showtime limited series about Roger Ailes. Call the loudest voice, that I was actually back at Mohegan sun, Tuesday night, and Wednesday yesterday did a bunch of content for them around the Barrett, Jackson, car auction, which is emanating from Mohegan sun on discovery and Motor Trend this weekend coming up. So a big, thank you to our friends at Mohegan sun, will explain more about why was up there. Why Johnny Damon and Roger Clemens were up there. And then you'll hear from them, plus Sierra, yes, Sierra, is well, all next on episode number twenty eight of the pinstripe lanes podcast. Welcome back for pinstripe lanes podcast. I'm ralphie Aversa, chances are if you are a Yankee fan, you at least know of Mohegan sun. You remember the resort actually sponsored the bar. That is the batter's eye out in centerfield of the new stadium for a number of years that area people still refer to it actually has the Mohegan sun sports bar funny enough, but for the past couple of years, now, Pepsi has retained the title sponsorship for that area of the stadium, Mohegan sun has maintained a sponsorship with the Yankees, though. I believe it's the seventh inning. You'll see the Mohegan sun logo usually behind home plate. And I'm sure even prior to nine you knew of Mohegan sun up an uncle Connecticut. Just an amazing resort beautiful arena spa shops, of course, gambling, and much much, much more golf, too. Then, of course they have Mohicans on Pocono, which is not too far from where the rail riders play just down. Eighty one. One in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. They also manage resorts casino in Atlantic City in number of other properties throughout North America. I have had a very good relationship with Mohegan sun. We should disclose that for a number of years when I worked in Scranton wilkes-barre, I obviously, I came to know Mohegan sun really through Mohegan sun Pocono, and that has my show expanded to Rhode Island and Connecticut. And the New York I became much more familiar with the other properties and many more of the staff members at Mohegan sun, they will bring me on property at Mohegan sun, most of the time to hosting media content. Sometimes I'll go up there to host live events, as well. We've done that for, for all three of the specifically affirmation properties. And I was up there again this past weekend, to host a Facebook live for the grand opening of Novell, which is a new supper club. Speakeasy very hip kind of place you could have dinner and then go late night for drinks, and cocktails and dancing as well. I'd opened. Up right next to Seoul, Toro. Which is a Mexican restaurant. Fun fact, owned in part by Michael Jordan there at Mohegan sun. Jordan also has a steakhouse there, but anyways grand opening of Novell a star studded red carpet event that was headlined by khloe Kardashian. And if you're wondering, I think I'm gonna be on keeping up with the Kardashians because they asked me to sign a release. I obliged, a number of other athletes were there as well, including somebody who's also had a great relationship with Mohegan sun for a number of years. Remember, you think about the location of Mohegan sun? It's really halfway between New York and Boston. So Red Sox players gangqi players and players of both teams know familiar no stranger to Mohegan sun, including Johnny Damon. He's had his foundation golf tournament there I have met him there before. And of course, I've seen Johnny in a number of different places, and I saw him this past weekend up in unconcealed at the grand opening of Novell at Mohegan. Son. Interestingly enough. It's the fifteen year anniversary of dear I say the oh, four championship, it's also the ten year anniversary of the two thousand nine championship. Johnny had his own nine ring. He was wearing it. And I asked him about all of that time pass seems like retirement goes allow faster than when you're playing when you're in the grind. I mean it's grind every single day. But when you're done, you know, baseball has been very good to allow us and feel like we're on vacation, all the time now, especially here what do you guys love doing when you come here because you've got such a great relationship with Mohegan sun. Yes, we do. And you know, we rather kisses time, so. The eight is this time. So they're actually they walked in here and they could not believe how beautiful a hotel or, or resort can be. And we always love coming here. I mean, there's just a energy people having fun, great nightclubs. Great music act. So it's great to come back all the time. I was a little surprised to see your name tonight, only because I know you're on the roster for all timers day tomorrow. What time do you got to get out of the Bronx? You know what we're gonna make sure we feel what's a militant night and be ready to hit some baseball's tomorrow. So just like I did. When I played, you know, I we made sure we always had a good time. We enjoyed playing the game of baseball, but we also knew we had to have fun and live our lives as well. So we're gonna be ready. You know, last year, I went three for three hopefully, I can finally hit my first home, read otas day tomorrow. So you during the CC softball game. So I gotta feeling tomorrow. It's going. Happen. Yeah. I feel like this is a very good year. So it'd be a great time. Chime. Johnny is wife. Michelle both of whom by the way are the nicest and it's I was thinking about it. I have been to so many of Janis. Big games as a Yankee. I was at his opening day, no six in. Oh, eight or Susan skipper. Oh, seven. I was at the. Game three AL Diaz hit the home run Yankees ended up winning the game that was against the Indians after the whole midges incident. And so on awaits, I believe it was. Oh a yeah, I was at a six for six game with the walk off ground rule. Double own nine. I was at the game. He went back to back with Sharon August Sunday night. Baseball against the Red Sox, huge turning point in that season. I was also in oh nine at the game where they clinched the division against the Red Sox. And when they clinched ale see us, so I see a lot of great games, Johnny's become guy as a Yankee, and it's just great that, like, you know, these such a nice guy. He's obviously always been pleasant, whenever we've interacted or chattered, or so on and so forth. Also, again, a total trooper I mean, the fact that they had batting practice for old, timers day, the next morning at ten I believe he had a be at the stadium around eight thirty meaning yet to leave Mohegan sun pretty early in the morning. So I give him in and Michelle. A lot of credit for the and the kids as well who they, they brought up two of the eight, of course, I didn't even have a chance to catch my breath after interviewing Johnny Michelle because he walked red carpet with rocker Roger Clemens and his wife Denise Roger and niece were up in the northeast. I, I guess, to go to Pawtucket, because he was inducted into the Pawtucket Red Sox. The triple A organization of the Red Sox hall of fame. Then, of course, came down to Mohegan sun, and onto the red carpet at the grand opening Novell, where I got to chat with the both of them twenty years since that first championship with the ninety nine when you reflect back. What do you think of it was pretty cool? You know, I came out when I came out of the game time for my, I think my three hundred twin I had one of the best closer and all baseball Mariano Rivera. And my comment was, there's, you know, everybody talks about death and taxes. Well, you gotta add Mario Verita. Every he's a for sure thing. So it was great to have MOS. Was coming in shutting your game down to get your you know get a win for you as a starting pitcher. And we loved it, and this is a this seen a lot of baseball. And this is this is the golfer in the family, actually. Yeah. Well, Debbie, I do have to ask you a question. I just read a story from nineteen ninety four in David Cone's book when he was pitching for the royals. He was pitching against you in Fenway. He's warming up, and he's very conscious of the fact that he's going up against the end the game and all the sudden he sees Debbie wanting down the stands with your lucky socks. Do you remember? Did you have a pair of socks that you had to wear with the Red Sox in David's? Got a really good book. I guess I guess, you know, I don't know that. I remember that. I hope I've had some lucky things. I remember pitching in a game with for my little guy. I got four boy. We have four boys and but when they were little ninja turtles came out. They had these thing called Bo. Biter. So you put them on your shoelaces in Oakland. I'm getting ready to pitch and the boys. She comes down. With the boys hands me Raphael and Donatello. And I put him on my shoes, and I think it went out there and pitch pretty good. Who knows this your first time on property at Mohegan sun? No, we've been here few times, we've interview times first time we see the golf course today, obviously we love golf, we love getting outside and play a little golf in, but the casinos awesome. Lot of great stores. A lot of great restaurants. And we're looking forward to the night to having a big time. Very nice people. And I was like, okay, I guess that's it for my interactions. At least on camera with both Johnny Damon and his significant other Roger Clemens. It is. And I was wrong. I still don't know the circumstances fully behind this, but at some point Roger who entered Novell had to exit and he was over by the fan signing some autographs. And then suddenly in keep in mind, he starts off off Mike here. That's how this clip starts, but then decides. To walk back onto the carpet onto our Facebook livestream were live streaming this entire event on Mohegan son's Facebook page and Roger unprompted decides to pay yours truly a complement and then crack a little joke. He's really good. And we're going to play that funky music, white Moines just a little bit. Rocket there is there's boy, right there. Yeah. I glad I caught him in a good mood. No one else really, to save sides that I mean really cool moment. And again, I, I can't thank him and Denise and in Johnny Damon, and Michelle for being nice enough. So there was one other mention of the Yankees on the red carpet. And that came that was actually my last interview a even after khloe Kardashian. Sierra was there at Mohegan sun, she was performing a private event for momentum members at Mohegan sun arena. Now, if you follow along with me here. Sierra great singer, artist married to Super Bowl winning quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson Russell Wilson junior, the third if you're like me, and you're a big fan of the damn Patrick show. Russell Wilson in addition to being a member of the just send a big contract, at least as far as I know still has a minor league deal with yet. That's correct. Your New York Yankees spent the past to spring training. In Yankee spring training camp down in Tampa and the night before, again because these, they were in France, I believe, for some stuff, and then flew to New York last night, the night before I jet was Sierra her and Russell sitting in the legend seats at Yankee Stadium to witness, Janke victory. And so how do I not bring that up while chatting with Sierra on the red carpet outside of the new club Novell at Mohegan sun? How is the game last night? By the way, it was a lot of fun. It was really as my first time ever being in the Yankee Stadium for game and was pretty magical. That's a very special stadium and was a perfect night, again, another opportunity to have a little bit of family fun in the midst of all the work if you're wondering, Russell was there, did not walk the carpet with Sierra did go inside with her after. So I didn't get a chance to ask Russell about the Yankees and the game last night. Here's what I. Really want ask him. He just had a big deal with the Seahawks hundred forty million dollars. I'm wondering if there's a provision in there that terminates is minorly deal with the Anki if that's even possible when the deal was first announced, I remember the assigned to double a Trenton. I mean, I guess you could always show up at spring training as just a, a I mean they invited Billy crystal for crying out loud. And he took it about. So why can't Russell Wilson? So I don't know if there's still a relationship or not. I know there was a video of Russell that the Ke's tweeted out for hope week, which was last week. He's by the way, have a great record during hope week. I don't think that's a coincidence, either. Because hope we obviously, they do so many great things for the community here in the Tri state area and yonder. But nonetheless, nice to hear Sierra. She was at the Yankee game the night before rock and the jersey in the hat, and then pants compliments to the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. So Yankee universe growing, and growing, and I guess sometimes you, you, you, you find out the, you might have an unexpected member to part of the universe. That's all right. Hey, the more the merrier. That's a wrap on episode over twenty eight of the pinstripe lanes podcast. Thank you for rating reviewing and subscribing, wherever you get podcast, by the way, one other note regarding the Yankees, they announced the stonewall scholarship initiative this year, there was a big event at the stonewall in the historic stonewall. And of course, June is pride month. Pride is this Sunday here in the city while the Yankees are across the pond in London. And then, of course, the other night unveiling a plaque in monument park to recognize the stonewall uprising on this being the fiftieth anniversary of that. And of course, had a number of other initiatives for the LGBTQ community as well. And I knew that this was going to get some mixed reaction from Yankee universe. They had pride basis as well. Commemorative basis for the game the other night, I think it is it was a very classy gesture all the way around the Yankees. I believe are the only team. I'm in be they may be one of the few if not one, the only teams in all before major sports here in the US that do not have pride night. I don't know if they pride night as needed or wanted. I think that's something that the members of the LGBT Q community should weigh in on, but I thought the scholarship and the plaque and all of the other gestures and initiatives done by the Yankees were done a first-class organization at first class way. And the being a first class organization, you don't expect anything less, besides that. So I give the, the team a lot of props on that, hopefully that take care of business in London, and we'll have a little recap of that, at least along with. I'm sure many other great stories and who knows what other guests next week, the pinstripe planes, podcast, I brought the versa, thanks to. And let's go Yankees.

Scott Coker Talks Bellator Return, Possible Addition of Paige VanZant

"You're listening to Fox media, podcast. Network. All right, so anime fans got some great news earlier this week. AS BELA TOR officially announce that they are back next Friday July twenty fourth at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Bella to forty two, and made event Sergio pettus versus Ricky Bundy has have be joined by belot or president, Scott Coker following this big news Scott. How are you sir? Great thank you for having me absolutely so this is obviously very big news. It's been five months since you guys have been able to put on an event. It's been a chaotic year, but how excited you'd actually be preparing for an actual car that's on the books as opposed to preparing to trying to get something rolling during this crazy time in the world. I'll tell you it's. It's ironic that this is the location that we left March. On the thirteenth I believe. And shut everything down because Cohen was just hitting that week. And everything was out, so we shut the production down but Now we're back to the Mohegan Sun and ready. Throw some fights. There's been some things floated around about when and where these events could take place and I. Thought There was some conversation about doing it on a sound stage in California, but it's back again. Son Like you said. How did that happen to to get back to Connecticut? Were there any other locations discussed? You know there was we were talking to five different locations. You know as you know having back up? there. And the one thing we found out rather quickly. It was that You sound stage. I was great, but they do have paramount I mean paramount CVs studios, and they do have a bunch of TV shows that they're doing producing and coming back, to business here in the next month or so so we would. We would have had to go out and have been out of there quicker that we liked. We stayed in La, and so we We chose the location where we can stay at least through the end of September, maybe even longer. and. Basically essentially I think as bubble and kind of like a Fi- camp or fight like by campus I fear biosphere for fighting. And do craziest safe environment where people can come a lot i. mean what I mean by people on Tumblr, fighters staff Athletic Commission. After officials once they get there, they don't have to leave. They can say the whole process. Testing is on site and results back in hours working with? The Mike Zillion you send tried and they're working with the The Yukon you there, so the results are being processed by. The Yukon lab and we're. We're really critical. Nice, little formula. That's going to work out quite well. Can you talk more about that formula, 'cause you. We kinda see what your competitors have been doing. Show Up, you task. You Quarantine for twenty four to forty eight hours way in tested again and then you go fight the next day going to be similar for for you guys heading into next Friday nights event. How is that going to work if you have any specifics for us? I think the. I think the. Key is that. WE WE HAVE! Basically given athletes they. Test before they even get on the plane. Before allowed to take up on the plane. And we want the results active for you know people off because you know why. Get on a plane travel across the country. To you know. Not have any kind of information and when you land, you get tested the next day. They tell you because it or you know have a problem. So. we think we were maybe one step in front of that, but it's quite insensitive. Testing is and the whole process of. Being this. Wow, let's say. Fights fear. It's It's quite it's quite. It's quite a document. Let's put it that way. I think that You know we could I was telling my guys. It was like a document that US look you'd like Ukiah. These other reentry coordinates for the SPACEX coming back. You know I mean seriously it's. That much work and you know we had. Make. Sure that the parent company was happy. And we went through a lot of compliance and protocols, and and you know make sure that they're with HR department and everybody's feels comfortable. And they have a production taskforce that. Thoroughly examine this. Truth Nice did. And feel good about it, so It's a little bit longer than we would have liked to announce it, but you know that's why we announce that a couple of income days ago, instead of maybe. It's better to err on the side of caution when you're dealing with the global pandemic, so I commend what you guys have been doing and taking that extra time, but next Friday's card headlined by Sergio Perez, for versus Ricky Ben Day House. which is a great fight. You get some of your highly touted prospects competing on the card as well. Guys like Aaron. Pico Logan Story Taiwan Claxton, Rafia. In more and I know you tried to book Bantamweight Title Fight At least that's report say between Arch Alita and Patrick mix, but articulated was forced to withdraw, but there may not be a title fight at the top of this card, but still a pretty exciting lineup is a not. Oh, I, mean come on, it's like if you WANNA see some kids scrap. Down this is this is the car to watch and you know it's I'm excited to see. PECO's return. See how he looks the new improve version. Try. To you know any J. Wilson I mean. But Ricky Bending aside against Sergio Fetish. That's GONNA be a war. Absolutely looking forward to and. Jason Jackson. Super talented kid lot of people on. The plane Jordan mean. Season veteran. It's going to be You know guys that have record or you know. Eleven. Four versus thirty wanted twelve and. Then daynuss. Fights and Twenty five I mean you got like the? Fight the. Level and This is rob maternity to keep going. Yeah. A good car should be a lot of fun. It's GonNa. Kick off at eight forty five. The prelims on. Bell Toys Youtube Page and then we had to the main card at ten o'clock eastern time on paramount network, and I assume mix versus arch. Aleta is still the plan for you. Guys for the vacant bantamweight title any kind of timeframe one that might be scheduled to take place now. We, we're planning to be in this System. At least through the end of September so hopefully. We'll be fight the sometime in mid. September is what we what was she? So this fear because the reports come out thirty August, seventh August Twenty First September eleventh. The events dates you guys had in mind. Are those are those locked in now in the spear here? Those those dates are just the opening announcement of tastes. We're going to be adding on dates. you know once we kinda get going and these these are four five series or fight series. Let's say but There's a good chance depending on. What happens with with the public? people coming to mask out of sport any. Time soon so I think we'll be I think we'll be continuing these shoot like in this little little ecosystem little stage, you know south states atmosphere. I think that we might be doing through the end of the year. All right and then a couple of fights that have been sort of thrown out there, Michael Chandler versus Benson Henderson to for the August seven card Phil Davis Versus Makita for the September eleventh card. Those fights confirmed at this point. you know what That's the way I refer back to riding on that one but You, know I. I I do know that we're working hard trying to get some of those flights. Keep in mind these fights. You know. These events even though. They're you know? They're in front of A. Non Audience Basically and it's going to have a different peal to look to it. Be a SARS in our company fight of this. Event I. Mean We want to buy. I want I. Want Chandler to fight. The fight I want. I want you know we want kilobytes to? They went and. We can get your over here. I want to get. Too So. You can see the biggest. We have on these December series. Any update on on the ground pre. I know that was going on. It was getting a lot of momentum is actually supposed to headline the cargo Mohegan that got canceled right before is about to begin. Is there any kind of an update on one? That might continue? Yes you could, you could imagine that You know we're anxious to get that going again. Issue is. Trying to get the fighters into the country. From from territories very challenging. Though have had little success so far hopefully when up. But if not. You know maybe we. Have to go to Europe to. To just fun lights that tournament, because so many of them around the world fighting tournament. Like white. People. I think there's a couple of others still left, but. In the day, we can't get him into the country, so it's hard to bite him. We can't even talk about an. Inch entry, here. So the plan would be you know in a perfect world we do this. MOHEGAN spirit if not. We do it over in Europe and and try to get it going now. Because obviously is a difficult time, and you know trying to get get. Those logistics figured out. That's just as important as actually seeing the fights themselves. Yes, because you know we always the fighters and we have been best employees. We have a tremendous amount of resources available to us and our legal department. That's working with fares and. Do you know the different legal. departments and you know. I I. WanNa. Say Like for instance the travel department internationally. It's You know they're very dialed into what's happening in Europe? So far, it's been a no go and. I'm a bit surprised by that to be honest, but. I understand it as well so everything's on lockdown and. You know it's been. It's been you know I. I hear fires coming from time to time. I just hasn't been often or frequent so. WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA push in pushing. We'll have done. It's just going to be better time. One of the things that that that people have said is that Bella towards come back soon. Because quote you'll you guys are losing momentum as these weeks and months go on and. I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment. I mean this part of it. The true because absence makes the heart grow fonder. But how do you feel about that because you know better than anybody's got? This is a an all you need. Sometimes is one great event one great fight, and that can erase an absence very quickly. Is that how you guys are looking at this right now? Yeah I mean listen. We're GONNA put some great fights. Really go back to doing. Do and we have a great product. We have some amazing world class fighters great organization. Great TV partner. have these face on paramount. And you know one thing I I You know I'm I'm sure that Showtime dig into this a little bit deeper, but you know they're you know they're gonNa be also. filling fights on the weekends that we're not promoting in back up producing anime show so. Really it'd be like a combat sports. Venue for both both companies. And you know so, that's that's. That's that's it's one way. I think that being under one umbrella having one ownership group. They proved out synergies. at the highest level of your working with. with Stephen, and so time production Prussia crew and how he worked together. In fact they send me some pictures from the Site Street today with both cruising there walking around. It's very interesting. I think it's circle. Way, but and then the day like you said Faye faith. Fans WanNa see fights, and that's where we're put this, and so you know. I I don't believe that we're going to be unveiled. We get back I mean. I think people appreciate July twenty four beyond, and then it'll be. The frequency it would be kind of acted normal in in some ways and you know people will use that and normal. You know I think rather quickly so. If if Preussen great sites which I know will, that's the issue, but. You know with a roster and the death of our talent, and and the young kids. We have today the tournament we got going. Yes, it'd be subsidized the future. I'm excited about what you know. What the future looks like for Belgium I'D BE REMISS IF I didn't ask you about this. Because this is the question that everyone's been sort of asking when it comes to Bella, Tor and what's happened as of this past weekend is where does page vans and go from here? Because she's now a free agent, her husband Austin van. Ford is already in or very very very well for you guys I know. It's only been five days since that fight with Amanda. He bus happened in Abu Dhabi, but have you in page, or her team had a conversation yet about her future potentially in ballot tour. You don't have to be I. Don't think we've had a business conversation. And we definitely have a relationship. With her husband camp. And the management, so we definitely will reach out here when when when she is back in settled I, mean she's she's but just. Know probably still selling in from the trip. And from what I heard. It wasn't a very fun fun time over it. And It's But but listen. Do we want to be in the? Business we definitely that we definitely want to have a conversation. and. See if there's a because I listen. A lot of great things for female anime. And you know if you look back at the history of strikeforce, we were the number one. Initiative but. Are you confident? You can get this done and. I would say you know we're GONNA. We're going to do our best to have a serious conversation to in the near future makes a lot of sense We'll definitely keep our eyes on that Scott lasting for Lego I appreciate the time today especially with everything being so chaotic, Getting Ready to to put on your first fight in a while next Friday, but it's been such a crazy year, and we're only July, which is crazy to look out when you're looking at the calendar, but you guys are GonNa, be getting back to action a little over a week's time. Would you say right now is is your goal is a promotion for the rest of the year. Realistically like what do you have to do as an organization Scott to make this a successful year for Balladur. Well you know, we definitely have some company. Goals on check on A. Check the box. And one cut nudie when out. My continuity for the fans. And for the fighters to compete. and which kind of you know this whole covert thing? Just kind of stopped the sports, world or something world. We're pretty much, but we want to get back to You know some continuity for the The damn vans of the athletes. And and then they're. You know we've been doing a great job on the retried series on. CBS Sports Network. International goals where silicon to achieve. you know we? We have some sponsorships Goals that we're.

ACC coaches are going to propose that every team in college basketball plays in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Thanks: WE HATE IT.

"All right. The NFL season is back Thursday night. We'll Brinson, and the crew from the pick six podcast brought you a pod every single weekday in the off season they're insane and they're great. So with football season finally here they're ramping up the frequency with a minimum of eight weekly pick six episodes Brinson. You're out of your mind I. Love You. Pick six will be there for gambling and fantasy picks leading up to games, and also there will be recast as soon as the Games end for the most comprehensive audio experienced download and subscribe to pick six apple podcasts, spotify stitcher and wherever else podcasts are found. Hey there it's scary. Purchased Wednesday certificate two, thousand and twenty. Welcome back to CBS. Sports I on College Basketball podcast where we? Discuss Campbell fighting and leaky Black Matt norlander is here with me and here's something interesting that happened this morning the ACC coaches held there weekly conference call earlier today agreed to formally propose that the two thousand twenty one, NC double tournament include all three, hundred, Fifty, seven, Division One men's basketball team. So let's start here norlander. Should we have an incidentally tournament with more than three hundred, fifty teams? No. And No. Hold on hold. And wait what's that? No, this is. All right. So this is the kind of. This is the kind of headline that will is so outrageous it will reverberate. Beyond. College basketball and bill, I honestly would be the kind of thing that I expect to be on the PTI rail later this afternoon. How interesting that it comes? How interesting it comes two days after I recommended a bunch of Mini Quasi AA tournaments to start the season but I'm not surprised by this because. I know that for a while now. Mike. CHEF. Ski has been endorsing behind the scenes. The idea of a one, hundred, twenty, eight team tournament how they got from that to just being like Just F- everyone go ahead and get in the pool. I'm not entirely sure. Jim Boeheim has long been. An endorser of expanding the tournament I think ninety six teams has been his has been selling point for a number of years. I don't like this at all. And we're literally getting this information in restarting odd cast it because we are in the middle of another one. Obviously, this is this is so interesting big that it demands immediate discussion and plenty of criticism. Here's why it's an issue. One. Place Nowhere close to even signing off on this the NC Double A. and its TV partners WanNa, have a sixty eight team tournament that starts in March like it always does that is their highly desired starting point. Okay and I understand that there was there was there are going to be certain brackets formats in logistics on how they would think they could try and do this. Every single coach in the sport is going to endorse this obviously because you can say I made the ended up tournament and ain't GonNa work like that. Now, if you have this many teams, the double a. runs the tournament, parish it funds and runs the tournament the. A does not have the manpower to be able to run a state. This is why. I love the idea of a early season, three, hundred and fifty, three, hundred, three, hundred, Fifty, seven teams. In this sport, I love the idea of starting the season with a three hundred fifty, seventeen bracket I even briefly thought about it before I came up with the idea posted earlier this week on the site, but it's logistically not doable I don't even see how this is. Viable from testing standpoint, it's disastrous if you have potential outbreaks from one team to another, which is why I've said in the past if you're GonNa have a tournament, you should have it in my opinion in one site and bubble up like that. So this is the brainchild of the ACC coaches. Mike Jesse and Jim Boeheim and I. You know the the biggest voices in that in that. League obviously are going to be pushing for this but I am extremely anti this not because they'll never stick with it I. Don't think this is so ridiculous that it's the one case where you could expand the tournament and they will definitely shrink it going forward. But this is just this is coaching. Brainstorming Gone Amok and beyond anything else I think that it would do more to devalue the college basketball regular season and make it a joke more than anything. We've ever seen before when in fact, college basketball stakeholders should be trying to do the opposite and bring as much value as possible to a unique season. I was I've been asked by various coaches several times over the past few months like what do you think about expanding the tournament just in this year like you said some of them Giambi Perhaps, most notably have been in favor of expanding the tournament for years now I'm. One hundred percent against that like I know that every year somebody's on the wrong side of the bubble and they feel like they get screwed. But at a sixty eight team tournament as somebody who has put together brackets and studied the bubble and all that stuff. The truth is if you're good, you're in the tournament that good teams do not get left out of the men's basketball tournament. You're if you can't get in, you have been very average at best. So I find it completely unnecessary to expand unless your argument is. GP We got to make as much money as we make, and there's more money to be made. With a expanded postseasons and like I I can't argue against that I if the bottom line is money, then just say the bottom line money and do it but. The idea that we need to expand the tournament for any reason other than money revenue is is nonsense good teams do not get left out at bad teams sometimes get in good teams do not get left out so but but obviously, we're living in different times right now like we're in the middle of a pandemic. Barring surprise shortened season played in an unprecedented way. So I've been asked several times over the like. What what would you think about expanded tournament? You'll just in this year and I say I could get behind it just in this year like Major League Baseball has expanded its postseason presumably they say just in this year. And the reason is simple with a shortened season. You provide more postseason opportunities for teams, but let's cut through that BS. Here's the truth. There's more money in playoff baseball than there is regular season baseball. Seles cut the regular season, edit the postseason in maximize revenue. So I'm for expanding the tournament in this year in the season to some degree but not all not every team like we don't need every team in the stupid NCAA tournament. First, we don't need all these teams that Division One Basketball I. Could say I wish we could take care of that like the idea that. Idaho and Kentucky are competing for the same trophy is fundamentally ridiculous. Someday I hope to look up and we've got we cut this thing easily and half probably even more than that I'd be fine with it. We wouldn't miss all of these teams like people like the quote Cinderella Stories, but like we don't need the Cinderella Story to be. Wagner you know like we we figure something else out but so. I just. I do that they were talking along these lines, the coaches about expanding. I did not know that they plan to go all the way to 357, but that is the formal proposal and I hope that it is. It is not accepted because it seems tweeted this the best word I can come up with this excessive it seems excessive. I mean ridiculous. Idiotic. Unnecessary. anti-theft to the actual idea of having a regular season. Here's something. So we had to reboot the podcast I'm trying to send text messages get more. I will read directly tweet from our friend Pat Forty. This. What are we doing here? It says the plan would turn. The plan would turn conference championship week into the opening round of the big dance from their field is reduced to sixty four sixty by the following week. That's already what happens with conference tournaments. What are we doing here? Are we saying that like the first round and second round and third round and fourth round and fifth round and six round of the tournament would be conferences playing each other no I actually don't think that's okay. Means because the the ACC is never going to get on board with. We only get one team into you know whatever I think what he means is the incidentally tournament will quote start the week that championship week normally start. So if you're going to have a conference tournament in the SEC, you're gonNA have to move that up. Where are we putting this where these sites how we pay for it? How we staffing at how we getting? Enough officials are we having backup officials for Cova protocols what kind of testing is going to be there? This is a fun idea for coaches. In theory to me, it's not based on a lot of logic. Nobody has any desire to see any kind of nine, ten, fourteen, sixteen wind low major mid major team in a tournament to begin with no one has any sort of desire to see any kind of you know I'll twelfth place team in the ACC play in the incidentally tournaments. So none of that stuff I think is is even close to reasonable I. Just don't I don't think this benefits college basketball's cost, and in fact, ACC coaches by doing this see the. Listen. They're operating in their own silos and all that. But they don't realize that presenting this kind of plan actually makes college basketball look like something of a joke here where it's like, yeah everyone gets in the tournament because even though you and I understand that this is not actually the case, it's not the absolute easiest thing to get into the tournament but for many casual sports fans this. Sixty eight t mental tournament is a is a Utopian sports event every march, but it does have this impression of like. Well, there are sixty eight teams in this thing. So it's not exactly the hardest thing to get in if you can't get in, you almost deserve to lose your job. If even the time of the pandemic amid the coronavirus, they decided to expand this thing I just think. It just erodes everything about the sport leading up to that moment what good luck. Good luck even trying to see that by the way, and I'll tweet that when respond here how do you even see that? How do you see it actually seems actually legitimately impossible to even remotely try and accurately see the tournament like that. So you would have chaos chaos, and if you WANNA make a case perished like well, you know what? What? The Hell let's just get on with it and just have complete and utter chaos left and right that's fine. But that's that's an. That's true impossibility. Last thing here the reason why I think this is also and I'm just GONNA I'm GonNa roll with this. Now because this, the fact that the coaches put this out there I'm I'll share this with the public the ACC right now as I understand it is. I don't think it's necessarily more likely to do this than not, but it is definitely on the table. See Right now you have all of these conversations happening and there's good communication but the ACC is one of two power conference leagues as I understand right now, that is prepared to go legally for a number of reasons and one of those reasons would. Be If. We get to a certain point with all these tournament organizers and we'll get that later on the podcast and you got eleven different non-conference, November and December events. The ACC is prepared to say you know what? We'll just go twenty six league games do a round robin had that constitute our regular season and will be good with that obviously the. Doesn't want to have a situation where you have five seven, nine conferences, go league only, and then everyone else is playing a non conference because that really makes for some irregularity. But if the did that that is also another reason why the ACC coaches would be presenting a plan like this because if you only played league games only helps their cost to have everyone in the pool because they haven't had any long nonleague action go ahead. That's exactly right like. They see coaches have been meeting weekly and I a few weeks ago I was told that Mike Chef Ski. Leonard Hamilton some of the bigger older coaches in that league were most interested in playing conference only schedules that if you left it up to them. They had reached a point of we need to do what's best for us. We need to take care of us. It's not our job to. To make this work for three hundred and fifty teams like let's take care of us. Let's focus on us. I don't want to say that every coach in the league felt that way but I was told the majority of coaches on these conference call. Definitely subscribed to that. Now I bet you as they start taking this to. The people that you take it to they were told, well, the problem with conference only schedules is that. It makes it very hard for the metrics to work. The metrics aren't as accurate and it makes trying to select teams for the Ncaa Tournament Problem Attic. So then their counter to that is well, then they'll just put everybody in the tournament. That's where we're at and. It just doesn't work for a variety of reasons. Here's another one by the way and I think this is one that gets gets lost. What is the reason? The NBA didn't WanNa take all thirty teams to Disneyworld. The main reason? The more teams, the more people, the more possibilities for outbreak. Correct. Okay. Well, let's just apply that same logic here. If we're doing three, fifty seven, you subtract sixty eight that are normally and we are adding two hundred eighty nine teams to an NCAA tournament thirteen scholarship players on each team just based on what's allowed. That's three thousand seven, hundred, Fifty, seven more basketball players competing in the quote NC Double A. Tournament you are increasing. The likelihood of an outbreak by a bazillion why? What is the point? Like it just doesn't I I will be I. Don't want to say shocked because who knows like we're living in unprecedented times I can't imagine the NC Double A. is actually going to think this is a good idea. I. Bet this is ends up being a compromise we will expand the tournament. From sixty eight to something. But we're not going to three five or seven. We're not going everybody everybody is. Excessive in by excessive I mean ridiculous I. Let us also reset here and put this in context for our listeners. This is obviously just So outrageous that it creates a headline we are reacting in real time and it is one idea from one conference granted that conference has multiple hall of fame coaches in and it's arguably the most prominent conference in the sport, but it's just one idea I'm not even there that they're going to compromise. I still think the instable a for many logistical reasons has no desire or intention to expand the tournament and I I mean. I spoke with someone the NCWA level and just because people might assume, this will be the personal. It was not Dan Gavitt, but it was someone else. In in DC authority there, and as recently as a week and a half ago there was no desire to expand the tournament whatsoever now, can they get to that point? Obviously, the NABC is going to lobby for this. It's a selection committee nightmare. The committee wants absolutely nothing to do with this as well and. It's just one idea what is true is they're going to try and work backward from. Okay. How big is the tournament and when do we want to have it and then from there? What's our calendar going to look like in terms of? Game allow ability what I also think is. Factoring into this. Is the uncertainty of how many games this season will entail I think that coaches in talking with their athletic directors coaches by the way hearing. From I mean I had two ACC coaches tell me that they've been on calls with you know high ranking, highly respected doctors that are not just working like the field of the instability like they are on the frontlines of of major health discussions and decisions at governmental levels dealing with public policies and those doctors have told ACC coaches that at this point. While, it's certainly possible. You could get a college basketball season up and running by the end of November or early. December. They are even to the point where the like you know if you could start by the end of January. That would be that would be a great ideal scenario not that I think college basketball season won't start until January, I'm just trying. To get you a little bit more of a perspective on how they land at this point when they're being told by respected people in their medical fields. Here's a potential reality. You might not be you might have all the best laid plans start your season in the year twenty twenty, but you might actually have to wait until January or maybe end of anywhere. Or early February to do that and so when they hear that kind of stuff they think, okay. Well, are they going to have the tournament still like in mid March and the march or early April? If that's the case like are we only going to have like a ten game season twelve game season guys if that's the case shouldn't we planned for something? In the event that no one can play a lot of games and what's the one solution to that? Know what everyone is willing to sacrifice and we're all into the tournament I think personally i. think that is the mindset and the discussions that led the to get to this point and I do think that every coach in the sport is going to basically endorsed this but it will be on the oversight committee will be on Dan Gavitt to an conference commissioners to really push back against us and say logistically. TV networks are capable of and here's how we're even capable of even staffing this thing of hosting it in how many sites. So there's there's so much to get to. Do Hope this is something of a comment and dies off relatively quickly. But when you have guys like Mike Francesca and Jim behind signing off in endorsing this, obviously, it's going to gain some legs. There's no question I. Guess if you were trying to argue for it like let's just be counter argue for a second if you're trying to argue for. It you would say I. Think Listen that NCAA tournament is with, is worth a billion dollars a year in AD revenue. Now, the idea that you expand it and and could get you know five times as much. Money seems crazy like unrealistic, but you could expand it in probably get more money you know. So you say we're trying to maximize revenue and It's the only thing that matters like if one of the ACC, photos of talking to me right now he's a GP bliss. You have consistently said since the pandemic started. The only thing that matters is having two thousand and twenty one NCAA tournament you've gotTa have it you gotTa have it. You gotTa have it. So this is a way to ensure that we have it and it's fair for everybody because we're not sure everybody is going to be able to play fifteen games, eighteen games, thousand five games, Thirty Games in advance of what is normally selection Sunday, and so we don't want to get to a place where we have to lead teams out because we say, well, you didn't play enough games or you didn't do this or you didn't do that. Let's just avoid. And ensure that everybody will have a chance to compete for the championship regardless of what the regular season it looks like because we're putting everybody in the tournament, and then again, we get to hold the NC Double A. Tournament and make all of the money that we need to make I guess that's the counterargument but that's not good enough for me. I'd say I hear you but this is silly. They're going to be that like this idea and they're they're going to like our love this idea based on an approach, envision to college basketball and the greatness of its postseason. I hate this idea because I still maintain that college basketball, I have a devotion college basketball regular season and college basketball needs to be doing all that it can pandemic otherwise to bring as much urgency and relevancy and creativity to its regular season as possible you eliminate. So much of the work you're GONNA try and do and getting these games done between November December until whenever the end of the regular season is. By doing this so I don't think that this is going to happen I just. I'M NOT GONNA say it's impossible I. I truly hate the idea perish I. Mean I love the sport I I cannot stand this idea. This entrust me I've I've heard from. I've heard from coaches at big schools musical small schools over the entire summer about expanding I hadn't heard three, fifty seven. But I've heard plenty of being like here's why you need to go to one twenty, eight guarantee at least two game two teams police Cetera et Cetera. Here's why it would work and I keep coming back to man that's too many teams you risking outbreak the money it's just not how would you seeded, etc. This is that to the degree and you know because it's making so much noise out. You'll get plenty of people responding to this on the record. Held by the end of the day if not by the end of the week, this all comes by the way. War One week out from the Division One council's vote to start the season. I'll I'll toss a little bit of a nugget here that I haven't shared. The understanding is that would be it would be November twenty fifth I've been told that that November twenty third is still might be kind of a last minute adjustment date because there are so many mt ease that that are scheduled to start the twenty third. They don't see what the point is between two days. So all of this is building up to the D. One council vote. We see we clearly have a lot of noise with this particular thing. Any kind of decision on this? If you're curious we are we are looking at. Two to three months minimum and we would almost certainly in my opinion start the season. If it started at the end of November parish before we even knew this was doable at a three fifty, seventeen level if it were if it were to be approved, that is definitely something that would that would take just so long to figure out in. Be Able to turn around and six or seven months. We should point out by the way and it doesn't matter the points. Every point we've made remains the same, but it wouldn't actually be three, five, seven like teams are. Banned. Because of APR Reasons Poor Oklahoma. State. Still can't get in that's also that's A. Point that's that and we don't even know if some leagues will wind up playing by the way. So there's also that yeah. So this could be a three hundred and thirty team tournament three forty five year, right? Absolutely. Okay. So let's bottom line it. Two thumbs down from the college basketball podcast. Is that correct to just all the way down there continuing to drop to go down down down down down I ninety, six, three, fifty, seven and you've got me waking up at two forty five in the morning with colts this is yeah. I again, I'm I am in. Favor of, but I'm okay with expanding but not all the way to include body who is eligible for the NCAA tournament. Again, excessive is the word that comes to mind. Let's move on details about how it's short to be unusual two, thousand, twenty, twenty, one college basketball season Mike get started continued to be revealed nor later. Tuesday night about a possible nonleague bubble at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut that would take place. In December we're going to get to that next I. Check this up. I know it seems like baseball just started because it did but remember we only have sixty games this season it's crunch time join. Scott White Chris Towers the occasional Adam as and meet. For example, as we help, you win your leagues on fantasy. Baseball, today part of the CBS sports podcast network we dive into every game every night help you set your lineups, make waiver moves, and of course, dominate your league mates there may be unwritten rules in baseball put not on fantasy baseball today listen weekdays on Apple podcasts, spotify Stitcher, and wherever else podcast found by. Welcome to the nothing personal with David Samson podcast, we've had to wait until July for some baseball, but it's finally here we've bubbled we've quarantined and we've masked all for this moment, and although this show has been categorized as baseball show, any loyal listener would tell you were much more than that every week day five days a week you'll find an honest look at the sports world. You won't find anywhere else. You can download and subscribe on Apple spotify Stitcher Youtube, or wherever else you find your podcasts. No B. s no soft tosses no hot takes it's always business it's nothing personal. So. Details about how the season might and I emphasize. The word might get started continued to be revealed and nor later had a story on Tuesday night about a possible nonleague bubble at Mohegan sign that would take place in in December. So New Orleans you walk us through it obtained the documents. What does that proposal look like and do you think it will actually happen? This big tournament totally thrown me. So this was this was to be the lead item on the podcast I do think this is going to happen now the. There were three documents that have been sent along the schools and stakeholders about the hall of fame which puts on. An event the tip off at Mohegan every single year and has for a decade. It wants to hold a true college basketball bubble in December and I mean true bubble. If you get to Mohegan Sun, you don't leave the property until you're done playing or if you create a positive test either. The initial plan, and this was the initial plan was sixteen teams thirty two games over the course of eight days that doesn't include like arrival quarantine testing and practice pre practices and all that kind of good stuff now I have. I knew this was what I didn't include I included via sources was sixteen was the initial proposal. There's going to be more than sixteen teams, and in fact, after my story went up, I had a representative from the hall of fame call to clarify a couple of things which are important to this to this story. First of all testing is paramount and actually they plan on. Now instead of using the nose nasal swab, they wanNA use the saliva direct test which was created by Yale funded by the NBA an mvp a that is going to be the testing method and it's going to be done through. Through saliva samples and they're gonna get all that stuff. So that's that's an upgrade to the initial plan. The other thing is. They have to figure out what teams want to come can come willing to come and then are going to provide an car option if you will for schools. Let me give you one example Baylor one of the best teams in college basketball this season is scheduled to play in one. Terry Teagle went to school. That is correct. That is correct shots to to Terry Teagle. He's the legend so. Baylor is scheduled to play and one of these Gazelle Group Games which would be scheduled to play in the new. York City area. The Gazelle group is going to almost certainly move up to Mohegan Sun but the problem is Baylor. Has the Jimmy V. Classic which would bump up against this. So you have certain schools that would be involved in Mohegan games that could be involved in other either single night made for TV events or other notable non conference games whose fates have not been determined yet. So what the Mohegan Sun and the hall of fame are going to be willing to do is basically saying Baylor. Okay, you go down theoretically you play in Orlando as I understand it ESPN's going to try and get a bunch of these MTA's to be played in Orlando right up close to win the season's starting and then. Jimmy V. being like the finale event of all the Orlando Games as I understand it at this point, no full final decisions have been made, and then Baylor would have the option to say, okay, we're going to either fly directly Mohegan or will fly back home for X. amount of days. Then they would get to Mohegan and they would have the option if Baylor went to the organizers and said, you know what? We just want to non conference games at Mohegan they'd be like that's cool. If they went if they say, you know what we're going to make the trip if you can actually help us, we're going to kill. Off some other, it can get us five opponents. When we come there if the schedule allows for it, they will do that. So you will have some teams that may get two or three games other teams that might get five or six games the big unknown at this point, and this is such a complex issue. Everyone's waiting for the vote on the sixteenth to see when the season can start and under what terms and wants that vote comes through all these tournament organizers across the country are going to just go nuts could be a cluster if you get what I'm saying, but we wait and see on on all of that. What we don't know how many teams will go to Mohegan and how all those formats would play out I do want to make this known. There is a willingness across college basketball. Regardless of the event you've got, you know you've got the Mohegan Sun I reported on Tuesday as well that the battle for Atlantis is going to be leaving the Bahamas and Sioux Falls South Dakota is potential destination for that I can get to that in a minute if we need to explain more as to why that is, but the point is. All of these events you have the bigger schools willing and wanting to include at least a couple of mid majors to one. They want they want the feed if you will they want the easy wins if you will. But they also want to help out these schools benefit and ways because it's going to be necessary to their long lasting legitimacy as an athletic. Department in many regards to being able to have a schedule qualify for the tournament if it's not three hundred and fifty frickin teams. So keep that in mind as well. If you're listening to this in your fan of a small school team, there are discussions and a lot of consideration being given to allowing those teams to play in these events I do think it. Isn't inevitability that a lot of them will get the short end of the stick and be left out but these events that are going to be in Orlando potentially ashville potentially. Mohegan. Sun. Sioux falls South Dakota Las. Vegas. It's been bandied about I've until Louisville's in the mix There will be some small schools that will be taken into consideration that have opportunities. And play those as well. I've been rambling comments and questions go ahead imagine thinking you were going to Atlantis and you end up in Sioux falls can I explain okay so you're right and when I sent that news out that tweet out on Tuesday everyone made that joke and it's absolutely correct here's why Sioux falls it's going to be a destination it's the only It is the only bubble site that is directly working in conjunction in business every day with a healthcare providers Sanford health out of Sioux falls is the entity that has been responsible for providing everything about testing and protocols. With the PGA tour. It's got an actual health organization that has taken on a major American sport and guided the PGA tour with all of its Cova testing. That is a huge obviously a huge selling point. To Conference Commissioners Athletic Director Schools and so yes Sioux falls and also by the way it's in the middle of nowhere weirdly enough you had this huge banker rally. That's that's. The story that's led to like it was a huge super spreader event like it was it was a massive it's created massive amounts of cases based on the research that's been done and Sioux falls is one of the spots where it was at. So Ironically Enough Sioux falls is relatively you know in the middle of nowhere, but the state is actually about right now. Regardless of all that they have more than enough hotels and it would be just like the way that Orlando is a bubble in the middle of hotspot Florida. It would be there. So yes, Atlantis going to Sioux Falls, which is not definite. I've just been told by multiple sources. That's the preferred destination right now because of many factors the health stuff being one of them I would anticipate that if we can have bubbles that the Pentagon which is what it's called the basketball facility up, there would be one of the premier and. Destinations for many factors. Any good. It was the sturgis motorcycle rally and the study showed just. So we make sure we got it exactly right that there was a study done that attributed perhaps more than two hundred, fifty, thousand Cova nineteen cases to that rally from people. Being there. Then going back into their communities all over the country and spreading the virus that they contracted while at this motorcycle rally. So As is the case would basically everything in two thousand twenty? The study gets reported, and then if it confirms what you think about this virus you go oh my God see and if you are a virus Denier, you just dismiss the study and call it fake news like that's where we're at trust me I posted that study on the facebook page and it just turned into an absolute nightmare. I've been Sioux falls by the way it's actually beautiful place the only thing the the main thing I remember about it laid that in Sioux. Falls. And with the baggage claim. And I'm not exaggerating I. Think I was the only person they're not pick not picking up a weapon. Like everybody's best like my suitcase came through and I grabbed it and everybody else had like a were guns. They were all going there hunting. It was like big the week and I was there was a big. Hunting weekend. So every weekend there is a big hunting we can get. So so I I don't remember where I flew from like maybe Memphis to Minneapolis the Minneapolis Sioux falls it sounds like that might have been right. But by entire flight from wherever I connected to Sioux falls was me And people who love to kill animals. That's all it was. Pretty some pretty wild scene but. Chelsea to pit the God I'm sure if you put it there, it'll. It'll go. Great. Here's my question to you because when I talked to coaches and obviously this is all changing to fill like every day. But when I've been talking to the few weeks day. Felt, like for the most part, they could create these little bubbles nonleague situations on their own that they didn't need an organizer to do it like Jay Wright and John Calipari and mark few and Tom. Izzo we're talking about, hey, how can we get together and do this? And then in your story I noticed that part of like if you want to get involved I believe. The number was seven you gotta pay seventy, five thousand dollars like is Kentucky. Really GonNa pay seventy five thousand dollars to be in a bubble with a bunch of teams or is Kentucky. Just going to say we run run ourselves. I think it's going to be willing and I was also told that. Can these these coaches about these tournaments right now it's ridiculous. My Gosh. Did Kentucky would be obviously capable of doing that Peirce but actually cal Perry went on a podcast with arm Mandy cats, and he was vocal about wanting to participate in these events help the smaller schools. There's not going to be equity even callous offering up like antidotes like if my players decided to go out and hang with the girlfriends and we're out for two weeks as a quarantine that's bad on us. So He's actually I it's been really. Uplifting the see cow publicly take this stance and stand up for the little guys I would hope that that's going to happen behind the scenes I was also told him regard Mohegan Sun seventy five thousand was. That is the number that in the proposal smaller schools would not necessarily have to pay that much. There will be no there would be negotiated prices. So if you're if you're a smaller school and that's too steep. They would accommodate otherwise there. So keep that in mind also keep in mind this. No one knows what's going to happen with non conference play it is it is by far the biggest issue that I think actually, it doesn't have as urgent see right now behind it. You know everything before I start date to those games get killed off to they get pushed back to another year are their inevitable lawsuits. We don't know but there are going to be plenty of schools that are looking to play as many non conference games as allowable. As close to their campus as possible. So Just, for example, and I'm not saying this happened I'm not saying I got until on this but this specific school was pointed out to me as one that would make sense right now providence is scheduled to play in the Maui Tournament and the Maui Tournament hasn't officially left out yet I've been told there are at least five cities that are aggressively trying to get married to go and play there. There is no front runner at this point but providence unless that Mao unless the Maui tournament got relocated to Mohegan Sun, which is not in the cards I, understand it or or somewhere that was close by It would prefer probably to not have to fly. Somewhere far off and go do that when it can simply hop on a bus DRI- forty seven minutes to the Mohegan Sun and get non conference opponents that are basically on the same level as what they would be an amount pod and get that done. So what you may see what you may see its teams that are scheduled to be in one as we referred to them. Mt. Bow Out and you'll have swaps you'll have geographic trades where it's like, okay you know what you are supposed to be in the group that's going to go play in Orlando instead now you're going to Mohegan Sun I do think that is an option. The next thing that schools are waiting to find out is, when is there going to be a vote end a decision? Made on the maximum allowable games overall for teams 'cause it's thirty one and that number is dropping. What is it going to go from thirty? One to twenty? Seven, twenty, five we don't know ns they're going to be a maximum allowable number of games for non conference. If that's the case, what does that number going to beat? Let's just say it's eight perish toss number there. I think you would have a situation where a lot of schools would say, okay we can play eight Non Conference Games Mohegan Sun or Orlando or Vegas, or whatever. Can you get a six of these games? CAN WE POE? Can we just knock out six to weeks time and get those done? That is that is a premise that I can tell you multiple coaches at top twenty five programs. have endorsed him personally and I. Think they're willing to do it but the installation, the oversight committee have to officially approved that I have game allowances and we're just not there yet. All right. If you haven't read the story yet posted Tuesday night in. ORLANDO. Obviously tweeted it I re tweeted it so you can find it on twitter or at CBS sports dot Com and like I said The most encouraging thing about all of this is that there are actual plans being made to try to conduct basketball season in some form. What is it going to look like? We still don't know exactly but a all I wanted from the jump and I wrote this column. A month or two ago is just don't wait around and assume everything will be okay. Let's start planning and quite clearly of people are planning. So that's that's a great sign that suggest. Even, if our country is not in a better place as it relates to Kobe nineteen or even a good place at all that there might be a way to actually have a two thousand and twenty twenty, one college basketball season before we get out of here. Some MBA news broke Tuesday night that might could theoretically impact college basketball document is out at Oklahoma City after five years. Witness happens immediately people start speculating about whether he would return to college because obviously. You know he's a future Naismith, memorial, Hall of Famer, he's a man who's won two national championships. He is reportedly going to be involved with the Philadelphia Search and possibly other jobs. So and my understanding is that it all things being equal. He would prefer to remain an NBA coach than a college coach again but norlander, do you could you envision a scenario where Billy Donovan is? I don't know next season, not this upcoming season. But after that Coaching College basketball, I actually can't my thinking and understanding on this is I, believe the same as yours as a few other reporters have kind of made clear that Billy Donovan is very comfortable and wanting to be an NBA coach. At this point he had in my opinion a very successful run with Oklahoma. City and the fact that he is not going to continue coaching, there is more him being a victim of circumstance and that franchise taking a look at its roster and and trying to maybe hit something of a reset and Donovan. Not Wanting to have himself at a failure with a second contract with Rosser situation that he would not prefer. He knows he's a commodity at the NBA market. You're GONNA see his name floated wish Chicago Indiana and Philadelphia I. Think it's plenty likely that he actually winds up coaching at any of those three franchises and if you told me that by the end of September, that was all wrapped up, I wouldn't be surprised at all. So I do think that he's going to continue coaching the NBA. Billy Donovan's chances at returning to college basketball in the next three years honestly perish I put it at like two percent, i. just. We should bring them up on the podcast and talk about him because he's he's obviously is one of the better college basketball coaches the past twenty five years but I think that part of his life is behind him and certainly he could get any job that he wanted but I think he is proved himself to be. A worthy NBA coach, she's going to have some suitors and I think that he's GonNa land with another job, and I do think he'll be coaching in the NBA next season. Did you say two percent two percent that he returns to college basketball the next three? I would put it higher than that but I but I still would put it well below fifty percent I think he's going to be an NBA coach. Shoot my two percents throwing you there. Just seems really low like a ninety eight percent chance billy Donovan will be doing something other than Cudi Gallant basketball seems a little high, but but you and I are on the same nature I don't think he's going to go to college basketball. Next season I think he's going to be an NBA coach again, five years in Oklahoma City. made the playoffs all five years, but lost in the first round each of the past four years. Obviously. He took over a team. With Kevin Durant Russell. WESTBROOK insurgents. Those were three starters through the top scores on his first team. The. Conference Finals Western Conference finals that season and then he lost Kevin. Durant. And Serge Ibaka after that year Trivia time. Okay. Okay. The only player Billy of First Oklahoma City team that was also on his last Oklahoma City team was even Adams. That's very good. It was Stephen Adams. Look at you nailing Trivia here's what's interesting to me. So he goes to Oklahoma City inherits a team with Russ in K. D. he takes it to I believe at three seed. In. In the the three seat in the West they go to the Western. Conference finals they play the warriors they lose in seven games. If he wins game seven. Against the warriors goes to the finals. Does Katie ever leave. It is billy Donovan sitting here as the coach of an NBA champion. No. No what do you think? I mean listen. I would pick Lebron in the finals in two, thousand, sixteen against. The thunder because he's the king. But if Oklahoma City knocked off golden state, it's crazy to think they could knocked off Cleveland and if we're going to see wins the world championship that year I don't think Kevin durant leaves. Yeah. I mean, that's that's an ultimate. What if there and it? It's just that's kind of life in the NBA Perish. Those kind of decisions from players they just it just seems like they're just huge. It's time for the wave affects not ripple effects in terms of how they can affect coaching careers and just kind of the way that the that the NBA goes one direction versus and other you look at the. Clippers this year being one of the most prominent instances of that with what able to do with that team. The Raptors are still good. Don't get me wrong but the clippers wouldn't be the clippers as we know them if quiet and decided what he did to do what he did. It's just amazing to me how often people's careers bikes stinted lives come down to these like moments where if it goes a different way? Everything unfolds differently like billy Donovan coached so far around four hundred regular season games in the NBA. And if he wins that one game seven in the Western Conference finals in his first year in Oklahoma City it is possibly wins the championship and Kevin Durant doesn't leave. Then maybe he's got a dynasty, maybe he doesn't. But it just the entire thing unfolds differently as it is he is unemployed but I think you and I agree probably won't be unemployed long I suspect when the two thousand and twenty twenty, one NBA season starts whenever that is billy. Donovan will be coaching some some team what of the thirty involved in in that league shells to Devon Down South Carolina. Terry MFN teagle legend Shasta Lar- now. Thanks for listen.

HELP ME BRO

"What's going on everybody? Welcome to another exciting episode talks with jeopardy today I want to discuss the movie I just washed over the weekend. A chance took me for a little bit of a right at the end kind of shocked I'm also going to talk about the time, I almost drowned kind of funny story behind that they would finish it up with a little bit of how life easy for a ride, so let's get started. Guys ever seen a movie. That just fucks you up at the very end. Let me. Tell you something that happens me over the weekend. I watched the movie uncut gems for you who don't know. It's the new movie with Adam Sandler and if fucked me up, bad, so summarize it pretty quickly the movies about. This guy who was a gambler and he goes through his life, trying to figure out how to pay off his debts. He hit a whole bunch of money to get diamond from Africa to sell it. He was gonNA make a million dollars of fucking got you know is chain rock in fucking only got one hundred thousand dollars for it, and then he goes on to proceed to make a deal with Garnett to make a bet for the final game. The NBA finals hints of winning and he makes a million dollars for that first of all he made. He sends his fucking girlfriend, who was his fucking side piece to Mohegan Sun I, believe to make a at for the million dollars, which he pretty much worked out and chemical. WHO's fucking being a symptom whole time this fucking girl to be want. She's fucking fucking the weekend fucking Batmobile fucking bar. But that's out there so. What about the movie is that at the fucking end? He gets shot. Now I will be okay with this if you got shot by his brother-in-law. Who is the bad guy? This entire movie, but the guy who fucking shoots him is his brother's laws. Lackey. Who's who has worked for him? It's even somebody that's relevant in the movie. And on top of that, his fucking latkes shoots his brother-in-law the whole so at the end of the day. The Guy who wants the money gets killed. The Guy who wins a million dollars gets killed and you have this schmuck. Just robbing his fucking store because he owns a pawnshop, and this girl has a million dollars, and she's in Mohegan Sun with it. And she's flying home and doesn't know what to do. I will here's my problem with that, too. You don't know what happens to the girl. Does she keep the money? Does she go back and get killed. Or, she go back to fucking the weekend. You don't know. These answer questions want to know. and. You can't make a part because he's dead. And nobody wants to watch fucking movie about some thought. Going around fucking dudes so that kind of little you know. Comey Mad. It's Kinda stupid if you asked me as directing director. But I wouldn't do that. I would try fucking find a way to tidy and I would have kept him alive to be honest. You know he's your from the entire movie to get his debt. fucking blows it. He doesn't blower, but the guy for them, but you know what I mean stupid. And believe it, or it was actually really good performance by Adam. Sandler the the them. We had some questions like but Adam Sandler let me tell you something. This man got fucking robbed of an Oscar from this movie. This guy had a performance. Top Notch I think his best movie besides this one was probably. So Happy Gilmore. I, would I would say or Billy Madison whichever one you're. Personally like Mr Deeds, but he did a fucking. Great job should want to Oscar. Fuck the Oscars for not giving him the award for that. We'll see what happens if you mix the movie of this. If he makes the dramatic movie like this one, I definitely will watch it. I mean I guess I was fucking shock. How good he was! Hopefully they can do better plot writing. Who knows? fucking, Akil at the end. Kinda stupid. You know like that takes you for a ride your whole life. You build a family and then what's boom? It's gone the second. I don't know how many people can relate to that. What's kind of stupid? Unfortunately I can kind of relate to that. That's the point where I. fucking gambling and get shot, but I'm GONNA fucking died. Believe it or not. It's a kind of a funny story behind it, too. So about about two years ago, I went to Lake George Camping with a couple of friends. and was a pretty good trip started off when we went up to get. Your little can't cy. A little campfire got a whole bunch of beer wasting four so the next day. You know we're a little bit hung over I'm like you know what one of our buddies like. Let's go onto boats. One hundred bucks per person. We said Fuck. It got the money. Let's go, so we rent a boat. And this is in Lake, George. Anybody who hasn't been there later pretty big on the Lakers kinda huge in my opinion. I mean for anybody's opinion. Is You look at the fucking Huger Fuck Moron? But we get the boat we on there. We had our way know. We have a couple of beers in the bow drinking having fun and we get a to the boat. The first omen that I should've saw one fucking got the boat. I try to get onto bow, and I slipped, and I caught myself on the dock and the guy the guy who was renting as the book said. Hey, there's a life jacket. In the fucking Tame, you want to wear it I mean he's. He recommends we all were. Me Trauma little tough guys like nodding. fucking lifejacket knew how to swim I swim in pools, our four feet tall before I should be fine. You know a lake that's almost twenty feet deep, compared to four feet pool, but hey, you live and learn right so fucking. Forget the life jacket the boat we saw heading our way. We get to the middle of the lake. Where can start tubing? Our first friend goes, and he goes in. A Tube looks pretty easy. Just hop on it. You fall off. You swim back to the boat. I said Fuck it might turn on a boat. I go on a tube and full off like an old person was now like I said. I'm a pretty good strong swimmer when he comes swinging a four-foot cool. I kind of took for granted the fucking twenty feet. This lake was and they say to this day. There is no waves till they I I. I'll say there was fucking ways in this lake from where don't ask me they were there. So I started going back to the bow. Our friend things. It's a bright idea. Hey, let me move the boat about another thirty feet. Now at this point I'm gassed. I'm not the best of shape and swimming, definitely, not my strong suit. So I'm just tired, so I start treading water now treading water for me like I said it's not the best thing I'm over here. Just treading water weight in the ways in my face. Luckily, they're not sea salt, but still getting my face getting my eyes. And I finally looked up into the blue sky and I said baby Jesus. Time I go. In? I literally gave up on life at that moment. There's only a few times in laughter I will see you know what I'm okay dying and one of that time I was like you know what I'm okay dying. I pretty much looked opposite. Can't do this anymore. I mean idiot for pretty myself in this position. And this is the way I'm going out. Going out. So I started going underneath the water I see the boat circling coming back around I, said Baby Lord Jesus here I come. Started I started rounding flop in you know. Flopping around like fucking wail can swim. My friend jumps into the water and pulls me out. Then they come on back on a boat. Now I don't do. Somebody gave him CPR. Arnaud was I woke up. And then I go and I I just start sun beating in front of the boat at this point so fucking and shock by body's trembling. Don't know what's going on so i. just take a nap. On further boat sunbathing like a washed up saline line. Realizing that I almost died. I don't know. How many have you ever been in that position? But it's a very come to term moment. We just give up on your life. You know things you can't control. The only other time that I said I will give up on. Life is if I ever have to fuck and hang from a cliff. And why because I can't do fucking pull up now. You would think. Why are you just to pull up? Because I've got I. Don't have the time nor need to vote. pull up, and I find myself in a mountain and I'm fucking hanging off a cliff because my dumb ass decides to hang to do something stupid and I had to either decide pull myself up. Or fucking! Often die. I'm content with falling off undying now people. Sat. Right? Know what's sad is I. Don't have the fucking brains to think. Not put myself in that position which I didn't do when I was fucking going on this boat. That lifejacket lesson learned life Kim pretty fast. And, now I know in a future life lifejacket doesn't I'm not going to go to? From that point. I learned my lesson. I learned how to tread water for a better bid amount. And I started swimming in deeper pools. Now. I'm a pretty decent swimmer, so you see. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. That's why life comes at you. Fast. Tell you it's something shocking. And, a lot of people don't realize how quickly things can change in their life. So that's why I go out tonight. I always appreciated by. Just do what you want to make you happy. Fuck answering people you don't have to I always say to answer to nobody in life. Besides yourself and your God whichever religion that is, that's the only people you have to answer to. You don't have to answer to your mother. You don't have to answer to your father. Let's pay for your bills and at that point better answer to them. You don't have to nobody even your wife. Because at the end of day. She fucking leave you whenever she wants.

Dancing rate dancing was kinda like smurfs. I think i was eighteen. Seventeen maybe when the smurfs came out. So i didn't watch cartoons. I do remember being in europe in eighty three and there were smurfs on every vespas building. Backpack they just took over. And i remember in germany. They're called d. shoe. I thought why can't they be called smurfs. Maybe it's murph was part of the email anatomy or something my favorite when it comes to that. Get the sports here. Second is spongebob squarepants. In when i was over there in ninety six for the world cup and i was in germany. He was spongebob. Shamkov tron cough means sponge head. It was spongebob in english. Sponge head and german. I think my favorite in france he was bob. Lipponen bob. The sponge bob square and spongebob squarepants tons college. Basketball is going to be having bubble. Ville at the mohegan mohegan sun casino in connecticut. If you've listened to me with comedians over the years they talk a lot about mohegan sun. It's a place where a lot of the new york-based guys go do a do a show and its stock on native american land near the thames river down there and southeastern connecticut. Uncle phil is what it is. And in fact the other day when i had jared freed on the show said uncle phil. He's like sonic. That's the name of the town. Yeah it's on tribal land well anyway. What's this thing i'm talking about. Well it was just announced. Cbs sports announcer because they obtain the schedule that they're going to forty five games played there over an eleven day period november twenty fifth to september. If coming up here pretty quickly. This is a huge win for college. Hoops if you think about this scheduling that they've been trying to get in because more than fifty percent of teams have not released their schedules and in october. Espn cancelled all the tournaments and events. They're gonna have in orlando. The nba bubble was they cancelled it for their but in the trash state area connecticut. That's where you connect and then cut well. The opposite has happened going up there. And rick jobs gazelle group. President gotta love that. Put this together. He said i believe it is very important to show. Games can be played in a safe environment and very important for the sport to present great non conference games. Quality of these games will go a long way into terminating. Who makes the ncaa tournament and how teams are seated in the ncaa tournament. We may soon be looking at conference tournaments and the ncaa tournament being played in bubbles or controlled environments. We want to show that it can be done successfully all right so who's going. Forty men's and women's teams have signed on these games at mohegan sun. So bubble ville. They're calling it. We'll have. I mean you look at the top five baylor nova. Uva they're all in apparently arizona state oregon florida. You're going to have ricky p. He's in his debut season with iona. Remember i on a hyundai sonata. Gino auriemma and the yukon women's team. I think they probably already been playing mohegan. Sun but bubble ville is possible because three major entities came together and that is the gazelle group. Nays embroil basketball hall of fame and mohegan sun recruiting teams and to provide safe and secure environment or these teams and Mohegan sun dave martinelli. Said i visited mohegan sun. Early august was impressed with the civility as we both began speaking with teams level interest in the logistics kept growing. Keep in mind. This will not only be the largest single college basketball event of the season but probably the largest single college basketball site. Event in history organizers said the last two months they have called one hundred and twenty five schools they said people have committed and then decommitted and then recommitted and then inevitable backout s- now mohegan sun is not completely new to who. Because if you follow the wnba that's where the wnba is connecticut. Sun play you know the hall of fame. They mentioned where they part well. They put on small basketball tournaments every november and by the way the mohegan sun also has mma boxing to let's They say the single site enormous square footage the measures taken to open the property. The can do attitude. The viacom partnership over boxing and access to a testing contact partnership while driving forces behind he can son being viable and it sits on tribal land so it is covered by tribal council. Which has its own health and emergency services department. Now when you say you know because technically the way it works is that is not the united states of america. It's how we can have gambling and casinos in california. It's a loophole. Arnold schwarzenegger started this when he was governor in california. It's trouble land. And whatever tribe it is that's their country and you know you just say it in quotes but still i mean legally is like connecticut like forty two other states the covid nineteen cases are rising and by the way a million as of cases in texas and just under a million in california. If you think about how college football keeps getting worse and worse and worse already talked about five games featuring top twenty five teams have been called off this weekend and four involving sec teams. But i think it's careful to note that the schedule start is in less than two weeks and nothing is one hundred percent. But they think that they're gonna have the protocols ready to go and same guy said. I'm fully coughing at the event will take place however i realize we need to be prepared to adapt to challenging circumstances. What's the plan. Well the plan. Stan get on the bus. Gus is to administer five thousand. Kobe tests the athletes. And the staff and there will be four protected secure zones. It'll be hotel security on every floor. If you aren't playing or practicing or eating or doing anything else as the group you'll be out that's for staff officials tv production crews all of that. There will be immediate. Pcr testing for everyone who arrives and we'll be in the bubble type environment and what team cancels at the last second as a player coach. Who test positive. Well the protocols are in place to prevent that as much as possible and they've gone through nearly a dozen revisions apparently on the covid nineteen protocols in the past couple of months but the key to the start is everyone who comes in has to be negative the day before and then they're going to do the deep knows. Pcr tests horn inning and hotel rooms for the next twelve hours after your first test fans not one fan and that's the way it worked in the nba. Not one single solitary fan so these games are going to be on espn. They're going to be on fox sports They're going to be all over. The place we'll see opening night is supposed to be bailed versus arizona state and then villanova versus boston college as well. We'll get some good action and you think about asu ramming martin not the booze with the point guard. He's in back for another year with Bobby hurley there in tempe so asu should be an exciting team and the pac twelve this year But listen i. I like it and you'd say well. This is just a money spinner. Well what isn't a money spinner and sports all these kids. What are you gonna do. You say like stay in your dorm and wear a mask or let's all go to a bubble in connecticut and have forty of forty games. That to me. Sounds much more interesting so anyway. I plotted hope.

Welcome back to the show and when we get our guests on the air until then lines available at one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play. I was just looking at the mohegan sun and some of the games that are honest i said he s panel will have some of them but also flow sports. Can't say i know it flows. Sports is but this stuff keeps coming out over and over like for me to watch the qualifying. Europa games for tottenham. I had to get bleacher report app. Which is like five ninety nine a month and then when those were done i had to cancel it and then i had to get for the other games and the rope head to get. Cbs all access. And that's like five ninety nine a month and then i had to get. Espn plus like five ninety nine a month. The thing is i had to set. Remember to cancel this stuff when i'm done. Oh yeah and. I had to pay for the peacock. The peacock is the very worst. One segment brought to you by. Nbc's peacock sign up today seriously. The peacock is so garbage. And the reason. I say that is everything else. Streams you might. tv fine the peacock is always blurry. And you say we'll it might be your internet connect now. It's not because everything else works. Fine peacocks is fuzzy. Then it looks good for sac. And then it's fuzzy again and the thing that cracks me up. It's like sign up for the peacock so you can watch what's the show. Where all they talk about. Sex on how. I met your mother. Big bang theory never seen either of those shows. But i know it's supposed to be every joke is like I'm in there. And i wanna get naked. That type of on the next big bang theory sheldon takes his mom to the prom that type of thing so it says on the peacock. Hey now you can watch the big bang theory. Is that on tv anyway. I don't know maybe people wanna like binge watch it. I guess but anyway flow. Sports might be one of them things as well one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play. I think it is important before we start basketball season in the college ranks. Just look who not the preseason rankings. You know it's always gonna be dude. North carolina bob. I've talked about some of the other teams. But i don't see all americans season luke garza they six by the way now. It's like a sixth man. That's fine luke. Garza forward from iowa. Jared butler he went to jared the guard from baylor cade cunningham the guard from oklahoma state. I o though soon mu a guard. From roy or he kissed her afford from inzaghi and the aforementioned martin the point guard down there at Asu all right. It's our pleasure to welcome to the show logistics. That is her break dance. Name sauce goes by the name of logan epo. She's in school or when she goes to the doctor but she's here to talk about red bull won the biggest and most prestigious one on one break competition in the world. It's back for its seventeenth edition. The world final will be on the twenty eighth of this month in salzburg austria logistics. Thanks for being on the show. I gotta say. I've watched some of your dancing. It is highly impressive. I guess you got started in the beginning. You didn't even know girls were allowed to do this right. Hi thank you for having me Yeah so you were watching the guys do it. And then it's like wait. There's a girls category and so you started training it up. Is that what happened. Yeah i've seen a few girls do it but honesty when i first started i. It didn't feel like it was something That was common for girls and it actually is super common for girls. But i did feel like It was something that i couldn't exceed at until saying other woman I always enjoyed it. But i think once i thought there'd be else i feel more empowered to continue and i guess when you brag you gotta wear long pads or sweats to slide around and you can't be doing shorts or your skin's going to scraped up right. Yeah so i work pants and always something covering my shoulders on our whole arm and never top never short But you guys because some people can break in choice. Anthony tops. And i don't don't know how they do that. So when you spin on your head. And i know you don't spend for like ten minutes you'll you'll go around a few times. Is that something that your parents get scared at like. You're gonna get hurt or what are you ever. How how have you been hurt doing this. Oh man i've had some really bad injuries And i'm only seventeen. So that makes it even scarier sometimes but Yeah like for my parents and my grandparents worried and they tell me to just be careful but I had some pretty bad ones. Like i've i've extended my elbow I've spent my knee. I broke my finger. And but honestly it's it's kinda wipe it so that move at that high of it I think that's why the the dance take so much physical straight just to that i joined on Can be supported. Must have a strong enough. You know what. I think about the origins of a break dancing and and new york city and chicago and la some of our great urban areas here in the country but now i look around me last year's finals warren moon by and we had a russian girl when it's it's really more global than we know isn't it yeah. It went some new york to over the world. And it's crazy to see how much it's spread across the world. But i like it just shows how powerful breaking is more than just a dance. It's an art and a score culture and a community thing too and that's why it's been able to spread all over so it w is a double sided question here. How street you have to be like. Could you get some rich kid out of a castle. The come down to do it and then the other thing is. How much do you have to love hip hop that. You feel the rhythm that you can actually dance. Yeah yeah that's a great question. I think The awesome part about hip hop. Is it peace love unity and having fun. So it's really. I feel anyone can get involved in this. As long as there's to the history and the culture itself and like saying the love for hip hop culture itself And i feel like basically to ask you a question. Anyone can get into it as long as Whoever does get into it is aware of where it did. Come from because they came from the bronx new york in the seventies and As long as we continue to carry that essence especially as the talent builds up and It becomes a little bit more commercial just has to get deserve the essence of the culture in the member. It keeps them very interesting. I was watching your your battle with kate last year. And you try to like get in your face and throw a few like gang signs at your face and you just you know you didn't even like it was almost like you didn't even know she was there. You're just gonna dad so two girls try to intimidate you. Sometimes yes everyone is a. It's a battle. So i feel like there's always outside of trying to intimidate the opponent trying to scare the opponent and for me i liked. Approach it in a way. Where i let my move david talking and some people like to a lot of burns and a lot of character and the awesome part. Is that all of these are accepted. It's really just how you approach it and how you want to smoke the other opponent and so Yeah she definitely cannot with that. She's a very aggressive. Battler investment should widow. in contrast. I think i was a little more. I like to smile. But then when i'm doing my round so hard. There's no doubt you're fantastic performer. There's no doubt so going to austria to salzburg is a. I've been salzburg. It's a great town. It's the home of mozart. it's also the home. Red bull red bull salzburg. That's the best soccer team in austria. And they'll be hosting this event. How excited are you to go. I really. I don't think i'm going to this web vinyl due to the Travel complications from what's going on with the world I'm really excited to tune in and watch the literally then. They competition that. I up with every single year since the beginning of my breaking journey and so What am going or not. It's really exciting. To just be involved in the part of it and I'm really hard to see the tally that's gonna be there and yeah i mean let. I'm going on high Imagine in cova times the linoleum somebody has to get out there with lysol and clean it after every dancer you gotta bring your own linoleum. No you basically clean each time dot. Whatever i'm practicing if i'm seeing with people like literally bringing a towel and making sure that all you're still in high school and you have these companies. They sponsors approaching. You like we need to get our product name on you. it's honestly It's all a learning experience for me because like you're saying i'm really young and pursuing this professional at a very young age there's definitely challenges but i've learned so much about about brand About branding and just brands overall and How it's literally just alleged problem for the message that i wanna share and the the message that red bull shares or any of these brands are sharing and Yeah and also like having to keep checking. Like making sure i am. I did and being aware of competing bands and owned Just being so aware of all of these things especially when public It's been anything journey. But i'm learning for much. The good news is you can tell your parents. You don't have to go to college now. you're getting money. Yeah that's awesome another very interesting topic. That i'm still like i still discuss these things with my family because it's such a pivotal time. Where like some there isn't a there's literally option to not go and an option to go. So yeah you're definitely right about that. Yeah listen you know. College is fine. But if you're one of the best break dancers in the world. I think you can read a book later. That's just me talking. We've been speaking again address. Logistics and remember to check out the red bull world championships. That's going to be another twenty eighth in zell a logan. Thanks you coming on.

I've been to philadelphia last few years for army navy. And i'm a history buff and i just love that town and so for you as a nova guy getting drafted by the eagles having great success there. What was it like to play in place that you knew so well and all your friends were there. It was almost like playing in my hometown A great experience for us. And you know at the time i played there. You know even till today. The fans in philadelphia can change. Be a strong point. They contain to be Something that has a player you may know and and i it just an exciting experience. Every time i've even get to go to the city to watch a game or two and experience the game now It did because you're around the best people. The best stands in the world and so i always appreciate Being in philadelphia and certainly being around those people there and the thing is i was a former division two player in the eighties and so knowing you played wanted to double a. And got the walter payton award people still look to you and said he got hurt. He's not that big he didn't play d. One did you like being underestimated a little bit in the draft. I mean like it. But i think it was a source of strength for me. It was a source of Of a chip on my shoulder. As i as i played. I mean it was something that i wanted to train people wrong and to that i think is a good thing and it worked out well for me. over time But you know you wanna be a person that players around you and coaches around you. The specs and i think that over time. I was able to gain a lot of those people's respect because of my play on the field. No doubt and i think at the end of your career. That one year with the niners. Monday night game against the cards where you went crazy. I mean was it cool just to have that one last night for the national television audience to show that you're going to go out with style. You know it was it was it was really cool and important to me because i knew it was going to be my last year and i knew that obviously i was winding things down and you know and that last year you always like do i have it in. There are days when you have. There's this other days you don't And and that was one of the days. I had it and and things are working. Well just game they kinda bring you back to the old. The old you the guy that you used to be And it was one of those exciting games so we're still good. I'm decided to be a part of it and you know just glad that at the end of my career i was able to wrap it up one more time i think about to of all the years i mean it wasn't even a full decade but all the carries all you are very involved in the passing game especially the second half of your career all the time she got ear hold. I mean it's just the the the damage your body took in those nine years. How are you feeling now man. I'm good. I'm good now. I mean you know you're the game of football. Physical massey is aggressive all those things. I mean all those things are the gift and the curse of the game and so you know you feel the injuries you feel that daily you go through the pains and Like myself and many others contain to feel. But you make the most dubbing and listen no one with chronic combined. And i'm not trying to myself and so i go out there and i enjoy every single day but that's can and and make the most of how important was it for you to just go back that one day and and retire as an eagle just to you know. Just be around. All those green people are more It was definitely important The philadelphia eagles fan base embrace me. They took me in they. They said that You know we want you to be here. You are son your brother you are idle your mentor near someone that we look up to that we appreciate they. They did all those things for me. And i appreciate that it meant the world to me to just be able to go back and say You guys have given me so much. This is my last time coming here as a player that one day contract. I wanna to say thank you to you guys in certainly I appreciate all that you've done have more questions for be west here on behalf of crown royal we'll talk about crown royal on a second I saw your tweet That you think aaron rodgers should be the mvp and look. He's having a great year especially when they didn't even help out that team in the first round with jordan. Love but Everybody else's looking at at russell wilson. What is up with with a rod for you. Well i mean. I look at russell wilson and i think he's a great a great star twenty eight thousand the season already and he's been able to win some games In dramatic fashion especially come from behind win games and doing a different thing you've been able to do but but i always look at aaron rodgers and pasha home to russell book and say okay. Russell wilson was in the same situation as rodgers. Will he be able to do the same things. And the airpods is in the same situation as passionate home. Would we be saying at that. Point if i put russell wilson and aaron rodgers shoes and and vice versa airlines wilson shoes. I'm saying okay. Air had a big time. Receiver like gay. Kate metcalfe and i'm not trying to take anything away from davante adams because i think he's terrific but decay. Let cap is a different type of guy. I i i would think that would probably have a little bit more. She said the other part of that is having tyler. Lockett on the other side of became. They have it. He's no slouch either. So they have more weapons offensively for For for for russell wilson than air rodgers pass in green bay and convert. That i look at pasha home. And that offense. And i say to myself ok patrick. Mahomes weapon. air bothers with looking at offense in kansas city. would there be any fall off and to me. The answer is no. I mean you would probably see more of the same with aaron rodgers as you would see as passing home now. The hard part will russell wilson making his case where. Mvp at this point is that he's had a rough go at it. These last couple of weeks. he's turned the ball over. I think he has eight turnovers or at this point He he has to control the football. Comparing aras russell wilson and patrick mahomes. Patrick mahomes has airlines has to in Russell wilson has eight. That's a lot more. That's how you move football games. And so that's kind of the way that i built by because i do take in to account the degree of difficulty that east quarterback has to deal with. Now you make a really good point and just one more quick football question for you when you look at the nfc east and of course it's a wasteland when you look at all three teams are losing teams but as as the whole country hopes. There's not a six and ten layoff team can we. Maybe put a little bit of hope in your eagles. They have won two games in a row. There are three four and one. Are they about to turn the corner or are we going to see four bad teams all year there. Well i would hope that the turn. I think they will. We've seen the first half of the and nobody really tell you that with any certainty but i do know that the eagles are going to get now sanders. They'll get out sean jeopardy back. They'll get healthier jalen rancor who the second half of the season if they can just manas against some consistent planes from the quarterback position this team is certainly gonna be better in the second half then they were in the first half and if they can do that they'll they'll run away with this division in my opinion at least give them a chance to get home playoff games in the independent home playoff game you happy. Nfl this week to week and a team coming into philadelphia in january. It could be cold. It could be raining. And if you're here on the east coast. There could be writing sunny. Eighty degrees to remove. Had these last couple of days here. So i mean it could be anything but if it's cold and rainy nasty that gives an advantage to the home team. Give an advantage to a team that may be asked and athletic may not be as powerful goods as opposing team. Coming in that helps silly out a little bit. And so any given sunday plus some of the elemental plus special plays in carson. Getting getting hot and being streaky. I i think there is a possibility that the eagles could Have the ability to win one of those playoff games. All right good stuff. Let's talk about crown royal because They believe in staying safe supporting a community and drinking responsibly. That's had a crown your game day and wherever you're watching sports gotta make time for water breaks dumpy the fan who ruins game day for your friends and that's what you're trying to get across today. Brian yeah i mean. I think it's important that we came up with a crown royal for the last four years or so so it's been a really important initiative that we want people to enjoy the entire game day experience and i'm talking the start of your day all the way to the end of your day in order to do that especially in environment where people are having cocktails or having drinks at the games or or watching the game at home in order to enjoy the entire game day experience you have to hydrate. So we're just encouraging people to drink in moderation drink responsibly. But also as you drink continue to hydrate that means in-between drinks. Get yourself a cup of water bottle of water something to stay hydrated and if you can do that I think you'll be able to enjoy the entire game day experience. And and that's what that's all about the being responsible and the community general and to that end they've also done something really really special. That i was a part of his wealth the purple bag project and it was really a simple campaign and all you have to do is write hashtag. Couple bag project. You can still do it now. One of my social media posts and crown royal is going to attack one of those iconic purple bag full of essentials extended over to our troops that are serving overseas. And just think about this thinking. Imagine being trip overseas and and receive a wannabe bag full of essentials goodies. That you need that you can share with other did. That's a. that's a great thing. A great feeling the feel that crown royal and the people here in the state has Had contributed to just something special for you as you protect our country and protect the things that we that we live by. So i think that's really really special into to the date and i learned this morning That Current real have pack over a million bags for for our troops overseas. So i mean we talk about community. We talked about responsibility. We're also talking about putting action in plain in crown royal. Certainly doing that with the purple bag project as well as the water break campaign has take bag project. You want to go to twitter. He's at thirty six westbrook. Nothing like that. Velvet bag on behalf of crown royal. We have been speaking with brian westbrook. Thanks for coming on man really appreciate it and let's talk again soon. Appreciate it say all right.

Eight hundred eight seven eight player. We got our cy young award winners yesterday. And they were the correct choices over bauer. Perfect time to be a free agent when he kasai young then. Shane bieber unanimous cy. Young and it just you know former. Uc santa barbara or our friend. Can't corn korac. Went alexis point out. Shane bieber a former couch. Show and i my good buddy who. I played little league with day of lawn. Who is the itching coach at usc. I think now. He was the pitching coach at cal. He was the head coach at survive. He was the pitching coach in arizona but he was the best guy. I played little league baseball or even when we were you know eight years old nine years old. You went full scholarship to uc santa barbara. And he beat greg swindell at texas and then he blew out his and happens anyway. Shane bieber this. If you're an indians fan and you get rid of kluber and you get rid of clovinger and you get rid of you know your prospects like mia and then you basically get rid of trevor bauer. Because he's all voluntarily and you're going to get rid of choline door. I mean it's gotta be depressing when you've got the best pitcher in baseball unanimous cy young award winner. He's the best starter in baseball right now but anyway back to power the openly campaigning for new jobs. But also saying hey who says. I'm not coming back to the reds well. The number one team and this was supposed to be the number one team. Until the yankee stockton for coal are the angels and the angels are dying dying for pitching and this is a kid from southern california former. Ucla guy now that being said wouldn't it be more exciting to go to petco park and pitch the padres and stay in the national league. I think that would be very enticing. You look at the mets sandy. Alderson just pulled the trigger. Keeping marcus stroman around. But if you think noah syndergaard comes back from tommy john and you think about jacob degrom and who new owner steve cohen. He wants to spend spend spend obviously the yankees and the dodgers are gonna get mentioned and the teams that have money like the phillies and the aggressive teams. Like the white sox are gonna get mentioned as well but there's another team. I was reading a An article by dane perry baseball writer for cbssports. And he said after the angels the padres and the mets. He thinks it's the giants now. Kevin guzman was smart. I think in the qualifying offer from the giants. I think the giants showed their ambition. I given him nineteen. Plus if you think about johnny cueto. Who's in a decline phase trevor. Bauer go to the giants. I don't think so. I don't think the giants are gonna be able to match the kind of money that bauer can get on the yankees and the dodgers. What have you. But i think it's really. The angels are gonna make the biggest splash they lost out on garrett cole and yeah dylan. Bundy emerged. But i mean goodness gracious. What do they have in that. Rotation anthony rendong. Yeah great he was. Did they make the playoffs by getting him. No i trout as locked up till he's fifty three years old going to do that. Is the team pass to have them. But honestly if i had to pick right. Now what. I'd rather play with mike trout and anaheim or what i'd rather play with all those exciting kids including t's down in san diego. I'd rather go to san diego the truth but those would probably be to the two top destination Maybe he'll just go to the team. Member with zach ranki. We wondered where he was gonna go and it turned out. He just went to the team that gave the most money. And that was the d-backs could be one of those situations as well but cincinnati inc on back there unless you want to pay through the nose but anyway the two guys who deserve to win the cy young scott cy youngs.

You just can't say man it's gotta be man you can't say. Usa usally one eight hundred eight seven eight play. I was found like the more time. I spend england the morris. Turn to joey's from friends doing school didn't take long for former kennedy high school richmond. Ucla star tack mckinley. The first round pick who find a new home yesterday the bengals announced they have claimed him from waivers. From the falcons a cut him after a pretty bad falling out. And i gotta say. Mckinley didn't cover himself and laurie with some of the tweets had basically crying himself out of town but i did want him to come to the raiders. And it's As we have found out now three teams in a claim on him according to an rappaport that was the raiders the niners and the browns the bengals one out because they have the worst record and mckinley was tweet out. These falcons turned down a second round. Pick when i requested to get traded last year. Same falcons turned down a fifth and a sick from multiple teams. When i requested to get created this year. I only have seventeen and a half career sacks this relationship as i said it deteriorated and they decided to finally just cut their losses and that's a huge loss to have a first round pick just a couple of years ago and to get nothing back for cincinnati was in the market for some pass rushing help. And you know you think about getting rid of carlos dunlap to the seahawks at the deadline and by the way the bengals have eleven sacks in the nfl which is in the bottom five. They need help. But this is the thing about mckinley. Another east bay guy who thinks didn't work out an original team. I think about marshawn lynch interested in buffalo not finning in and just being lazy ass runaway that buffalo opportunity. He got the seattle and he turned his life around. He turned his career around. Our sean lynch is now in commercials. He's got his own clothing line. He is cash and he is beloved in seattle and oakland. But you know his career could have gone down the drain but he got on the straight narrow and this is what zach back. Mckinley has to do now. I don't know if he's got the talent to get up there but as he said he's got seventeen and a half. Nfl sacks there is some talent there but you can go to this team now and then cry and whine about that. But i think we need to do is put his head down gutting young coach. Zac taylor zachary taylor that he. This is a great great opportunity for them. And plus the thing is you got your wish homes you got out of atlanta so i hope the best forum i i really do. One eight hundred eight seven eight day I also saw you know when you look at the miami and thought well maybe we can make the playoffs if we keep rolling fits out there and it's like well is healthy and he's our future that's like we're gonna throw the season away. Ha ha about that for brian. flores he decides. I'm gonna put in a young kid and they are winning or keep winning. That's pretty cool. Like speaking of quarterbacks and making changes those reading jason lockenfora. Who's with cbs sports now. And he was talking about a game where the colts were trailing by multiple scores and philip rivers of thirty eight year old to throw the all down the field and three and five yard clumps and there was no deep passes. There was nothing to threaten the ravens defensive all there was no semblance of a comeback it was just duncan. Splash duncan run-and-shoot thrillers. And it was just a complete sud so he says indianapolis has a qb crisis for as good as the defense is and it is really good. And i gotta say the forest buckner husband planned fantastically well for them. And that shouldn't be a surprise. You had a good season for the niners and give up a first round. pick to get. What are they gonna do. Because i get to the playoffs. And lockenfora says he never would have signed rivers in the first place and he thought jacoby got a raw deal. I mean rivers in that game against baltimore. Six for six for sixty eight yards. I mean in the first half on for one hundred and fifty nine yards. I don't know maybe he's got a thing. I can't rivers. I don't know i to me. I would think if he can get back to his four thousand yards a season self that they'll be all right but i said i was surprised to see that because i didn't think that he was a problem. It's it's when i was talking about our buddy christiana. Houston day about the texans silent getting a win and the situation. There is very bleak. Their general manager is going to inherit some problems. But the one thing. They don't have a problem with the quarterback. And if you think about when if you compare them to the like if you compare them to the eagles and when chip kelly the dump a like when bill. Brian got the dump and bill. Brian for all his coaching success did huge damage on that roster chased away shawn mccoy the boot to sean jackson you gave. I'm sorry. Kelly did in philly. And so o'brien to the same thing in houston by getting rid of. Jv on clowney number. One overall. Pick the andre hopkins op three wide receiver on earth. Wayne brown. look what. The eagles did with howie roseman. They maybe the next. Gm can do that to. the problem. is the texans are going to be sending two of the top. Thirty eight picks in the draft to miami after that laremy tunsil trade. But if the gm can pull off what roseman did. Because what rosen. Did he came in and he got rid of guys. That chip love kiko alonzo and michael kendricks and look at demarco. Murray was getting grossly overpaid Byron maxwell got rid of him you got a first round pick for sam. Bradford is unreal. That someone would do that. I mean if you look at the texans if you would shut would you shed salary like. Jj watt whitney mercilus and bradley roby and brandin cooks. You have like a jeff. Liu now super aggressive forward thinking executive that could lead them out of the abyss. No but as i said the hardest thing to find awesome quarterback and they have that. And he's locked. Up to quarterbacks. I saw someone zone kyle. Murray is a much better wrestler than the march accent. First of all just jets calm down a second. Same much better i if you look at the stats. Murray has more yards per carry seven point one four and a five point four nine. He has more ten plus yard runs. He has eight more twenty three to fifteen. Murray is run for eight touchdowns. And lamar. Jackson is run or three and murray has been tackled for a loss half as many times eight to sixteen now. If you look at those stats. You're right but you gotta remember that. They're two different types of player. Mark jackson is a big guy with a strong arm and he is like a big horse. Collar murray more like a gazelle they play a different style. Plus the fact they play in completely different offenses and jackson does not have the kind of weapons. Murray house right now. Believe that that will force has rushers to respect not taking anything away from kyla. Murray murray is on pace or about eleven hundred yards rushing which would be within shouting distance of what jackson did last year. And that's why if you think about him being. Mvp lamar jackson. If you made him a tailback would be. I think one of the top ten running backs in football. I really do. He's that good. But this whole thing about i think it's this recent see bias to look statistically column or is getting done i love column i have nothing against him i said well why would you. Well it's because you know all the the as drafts and a mini. didn't sign. Lucky was a number one overall pick and won the hisen. What's he supposed to do. No i want to be a lake month. One eight hundred eight seven eight play and then one more thing about quarterback so they still feel sorry for dwayne haskins in washington. Dc that he gets drafted by his hometown team and then they throw them in there an awful team. He doesn't look great and now they're done with them down with him. he's not the future. Kyle alex not the future. Alex smith isn't the future so they're going to draft a quarterback what they're gonna do forever. Lawrence is going to the new york jets. Justin fields is going to the jacksonville jaguars. Then you'll have cincinnati on the clock and they'll probably take a ni- sewell. The oregon akyl to protect borough. And then you got the giants at four joe. Judge says he loves daniel jones. Well yes. I can take a quarterback. They would probably go defense. And then right now. That would leave washington at five. And who's the third quarterback in the drop. That's what everyone's asking right now. And it's funny the name. I'm seeing or than anything zack. Wilson wilson has the big kid at a byu fifth overall. Think about some of the talent. You'd be missing out on like jamaa chase mike. Parsons and patrick. 'certain the second dylan moses. I mean there's some great great players out there like you think about. What could you go with as far as quarterback after those top two guys and that's the thing you know. The kid from north dakota is getting some love. I mean dwayne haskins just to me at this part and as he needs a change of scenery absolutely needs somebody. Just come along and say look. We'll take the sky into our rangel. Give them a chance. I don't think he's a josh rosen. I don't think he's a lost cause you think rules in duluth. I don't think he's a johnny manziel type of situation. How about that all right. We'll take a quick break talking. Some sports come on back on sports attention to anyone.

Tittle was selected at random from the phone book to host this show for that The anaheim angels are los angeles. Angels have announced. They have filled her general manager position. They have hired perry minassian an awesome forty years old. He was the braves assistant. Gm this year. He's been with the atlanta front office for three years prior to that. He was nine years working in the toronto blue jays scouting department. You might remember billy up ler. Who is the jam. The last five years zero play office parents is not even a winning season in those five years. You have my trout. Anthony ran down. Show tani all these stars. The angels have made the playoffs once in the last twelve years. They wanna stop wasting mike. Trout's crime this is not a long-term rebuild. It is win now. Coal thing about minassian is his dad's zach clubhouse manager for twenty years which i think is pretty cool the loose of the mike murphy of that team already moreno you know. He likes to hire these first year. Gm's and since he took over and three he has a reputation for for getting involved. I mean but if you think about it. Joe maddon has a three year deal and even if minassian wanted to bring in his own manager not going to happen then why would he. I think it's a good skipper. But if you think about vacant. Gm positions we still have the phillies the marlins and the mets who have new ownership at Even though sandy alderson is president of baseball ops and having they're making moves kevin marks strowman without a gm as we speak the deadline today.

The balance of power in all of life is shifting soon as in fact on friday night at talking-shop a mania chico l. Lucia door is facing chavez guerrero junior in a death match where no hyperbole here obviously the only way to win is the other man must die and so i was watching the thing we had yesterday with carl anderson in rocky and rockies explaining this and also they hit me dude chico l. lucia door. He could be dead tomorrow night. Martha and so figured we've got to talk to him. Perhaps one last time and so tomorrow on this program we will be joined in these second segments show by chico. Eleanor in what might be his last interview. Ever prior to his death match with travel guerrero junior. I could just see everybody freaking out about this huge announcement and by the way in addition to that tomorrow. We'll be one of the most exciting days in wrestling. Observer live history because also my daughter is. She's been into a lot of things as you're probably well aware frozen. And olaf and pj masks. And all this other gobbly gook they don't into right now dinosaurs you reader dinosaur book every night and she always says daddy. Turn to the page where we can read about the mighty triceratops. She doesn't say the triceratops she says the mighty triceratops and she also wants me to read to her about the roches tyrannosaurus. Will how ironic the tomorrow on these very show. I am going to also interview a man who is mighty and ferocious it might be surviving dinosaur for all i know brody king is also going to be on this program tomorrow. I'm not sure an hour is enough time for all of this but we're going to have to make it work so tomorrow on wrestling observer live chico l. lucia door in perhaps his final interview ever and brody king back to back segments here on wrestling observer like so. I hope nothing happens tomorrow news wise because we could cover it. We got bigger fish to fry now by the way since we're getting into the holiday season here getting very very close to christmas Do you plan on getting your daughter a one of those Video calls or whatever it is what the hell those things called. What what are you buy you talking about. The dinosaurs are extinct bro. No not gonna get her. A personal message from lucia sorace. Wouldn't she not actually. That's that i was going to bury. But that's a that's a great idea. Okay i'll bury me for cameo dude cami. Whatever with twenty twenty mike. I'm sorry will you let me know about only fans so of the a w rating tonight with the number being nine hundred and sixteen thousand viewers. Do you think that they can do it. Well pump keeney. Let me tell you something. I did not have a vision. But i do know the now that the election has ended. And you look at the cable news. Numbers i mean. I don't think it's not going to be anywhere near the top fifty being news. The news number last few days have been hovering around normal so when you think about awa coming off full gear and changed the tag team titles and we have the winner of the tournament and we have the build towards whatever doing. I think it is very possible that this pump keeney here may have even called it exactly on the dot. Nine hundred and six reviews. There is not strong news competition. So i do not put it out of the realm of possibility that awa does nine hundred sixteen thousand viewers. I don't think it exceeds coming anywhere. Close to that with the show that they had last night. But i have been wrong before and so i guess we'll see mike. Do they break nine. Hundred thousand eight w. break nine hundred thousand tonight. I'm going to say no. Just because the last time was so confident in saying yes they didn't they got close but they didn't crack it. I will go and say in the high eighties. You know like eight eighty or something like that. And i don't know. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say something like. Oh let's save around seven twenty puts it around that one point five one point six million people every week. I'll go ahead and say that. And for sake i hope that's the case and they're not back down in the six hundred ten i i would have. One hundred percent liked the leeann rough title victory if not for damian priests putting the title around leon and it doesn't fit around his waist and then leeann stumbles after trying to run away. It just made him look silly he should have just won the belt and celebrated but i'm still interested to see what they do going forward. Well a couple of things if we had never seen leeann rough on television before and this was his debut and they were gonna do something with the guy and he beat johnny gargano and they didn't embarrass him great fine but we just saw leeann rough. It was like three or four weeks ago. You remember this match. He faced austin theory. He tried a bunch of springboards and fell down and then awesome theory grabbed him and he killed him with his move. The only win. That austin theory had in the middle of is losing streak the only when he had was overly on rough leeann rough ends up being the surprise winner of the spin the wheel on the gimmick wheel. He wins the match. I they played up. Like it's a fluke. Then damian priests puts the belt around his waist but he's so skinny that he raises hands and falls. Worst part was backstage and damian. Pre says bro. The moment johnny gargano comes through that curtain. He's gonna whip your ass so here. Take the car keys and go. That is your north american champion. Damian priests is trying to save the champions life because the moment johnny gargano gets his hands on he's gonna kill me sends them off with his car sued. You couldn't do a single. You know this is. This is a vince. russo angle. Where somebody had a bright idea for something that would be funny and like anybody can come up with the stupid funny idea. You want stupid funny ideas dude. I'll do it for free. I could come up with stupid funny ideas from now until the end of time. The difference is if you if you have a stupid funny idea and all laugh and then you do something else. You're smart if you have a stupid funny idea and you actually put it on television. You ain't smart. This is dumb bad booking devalued the title leeann rough is comedy guy. Johnny gargano looks like a geek which is supposed to look like a geek. But not to that level of cake damian superior wrestler and. He's not even champions protecting the champion. It sucked i. Don't want anyone it defending this which i heard they did some guy maybe one guy. I don't know how you go and defend this. Just you try to give him the benefit of the dabba. Why would you give him the benefit of the doubt. Before austin theory quit there was the only guy that they defeated. and like. You mentioned it wasn't just like you don't get the cheap visual which would have been kind of funny of. He raises his arms in the belt. Drops but then. He tripped something. Get outta here kid. Go ahead it was. Hey this guy is going to come back and kick your ass. But that's okay. The referee and i'll hold them off. Here's my expensive vehicle. Go on and get to it. We'll see what if there's a follow up that actually makes some sense but this was It was sudden and out of the ordinary for annexed t usually when it comes to these titles the year says i was wondering we think about the differences in safety and quality between wwe and awa hardcore matches include street fights ladder matches sells at cetera. Well quite frankly if you look at all the injuries and hey w and annex t like. I can't remember the last one actually happened in. What would be considered dangerous match. Their happening on normal things were guy goes for scott dude blows out his leg or guy goes for a flip off the top any land his head. That's what were the injuries have been coming from so okay.

Vbb on the sports byline broadcasting networks. Better the show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer live it also wrestling observer dot com salutes. Listen everybody on twitch chad here. Not everybody people. Don't care to pierce but tony kahn. Yesterday said there was going to be an announcement that was going to shift the balance of power in wrestling and we discussed. What could it possibly be. That would shift the balance of power in wrestling. And you know we. Maybe it's be the rock i mean. Who could it be blah blah blah blah blah. He said brock yes. Okay so i'm watching the show last night. And i thought i thought that the deal that was going to shift the balance of power and wrestling with shack and then later dave believes that. What's going to shift. The balance of power in wrestling is pock. Now couple of things here. Okay listen let me make this abundantly clear. If i were tony kahn now absolutely i would not tweet that something. Going to shift the balance of power in wrestling. If it's going to be the debut debut tease the check was going to be there or the return of poc. I would never have done that. Okay i never would have done in. Fact is spoofed it today and everyone took it way too seriously so deleted the tweet so anyway with that said okay. There's a couple of ways to look at this number one. Tony kahn may have been tweeting as. Aws tony kahn and aws. Tony kahn what. He talks about the balance of power in wrestling. He's talking about eighty w and the return of park. In fact in storylines in a w it is shifting the balance of power pocket. Coming back eddie. Kingston taken over the group pockets pissed off about it. Parking kingston are obviously going to fight over it okay. In storyline forget the giant world of wrestling. Okay let's talk about in asia w pox return is in fact. Get a shift everything around here now. Let me repeat this because people are going to listen to this talk about on being paid. I wouldn't have said this if i were tony kahn. You've got it. i would done it now. Another one actually think shack feuding with cody rhodes is going to shift the balance of power in the wider world of professional wrestling. Now i do not okay but let me tell you something. The whole idea of a guy like shat coming in is that they want to get the words or the letters awa out to a wider audience to people that have no idea what a w is and somebody mentioned this morning said. Is there a better guy than shack to be involved with a because you could do this inside the nba have them talking about a w on that show and wherever else shack goes in. You're getting cody. Rhodes aim out there and you could promote this and try to get the word out about a w obviously if you look at the w. numbers like the people to watch a w they love the show. They're watching it with their friends and their family probably more of their family. One point seven viewers per home. That's that's the numbers that we had in the attitude. Era the people that know about a love it but guess what if you get out of that bubble nobody knows about it and so the idea is we need to raise the whatever you call it. We need to get the w. name out there. We need to get out that there's a w resting on tnt and shacks gonna help with that now ultimately long-term if the same number of normal human beings on the street knew about aws knew about me that in fact might shift the balance of power in wrestling but his shock showing up on wednesday going to do that. No so again. I would not have tweeted that but i think people are getting a little bit. I think we're kind of this up here. It does something more than it. Is tony cahn thinking that this is going to help. Maybe he does. Maybe he thinks that this is going to shift the balance of power nursing. That's very different than for example. Teasing goldberg is going to be on the show and then he's not there or building up matches every week that you just don't deliver and there's no reason for it it's like someone went down with cove it or whatever it's just like you advertise something and then you didn't do it. That's a problem. Am i wrong about this. I don't think so. And there's the other aspect to this where there's corporate synergy involved. Sure you know. I think they're trying to start the nba season backup. They were talking early january than they were talking. You know around christmas time. I don't know guess what it's coming back to to. Tnt and it's one of their best sports properties that they have. It's probably the one they're most known for because of inside the nba and all that sort of stuff. and if i'm not mistaken papa. John's is an official sponsor of the national. Football league and shack is very much involved in that. I'm sure somebody to eight. W would like to raise the profile of the company a little bit more if you can get into bed which act that way. So there's all sorts of things that may be at play here as well to as to why shack involved. We think it's really going to end up. Being shacking cody could did end up being a situation. Where kenny smith or chris. Jericho joins the inner circle. I don't know we got a long time to go before their pay per view which means we got a lot of tv time to fill. And i'm not necessarily down on stuff like this. I don't think it's a it's a stunt. I think it's a stunt. But i don't think it's a particularly ridiculous one or anything that you know. People will roll their eyes. But there's always celebrity involvement in pro wrestling. Always has been always will be if you can figure out a way to use them and energize your fan base and maybe get some other people involved. Great and i think shack is actually really really good person to probably do that. With so no balance of power shifted with him certainly not definitely with talk either. Although i do understand i guess for the storyline point of view of why everything had shaken up. The bastard is back. we haven't seen him in forever. We've seen him talking to himself. We've seen them going crazy now. He's in the ring and he confronts another crazy man in kingston and they're both involved maybe going after the championship. So who who knows who knows where that will go but at least it was something exciting to end the show. If it didn't change the balance of things and the deal was shack. I think that just speaks for itself right so from both shows. We had a cody segments where they debuted at jade cargill. Who apparently is going to be. I dunno if you're going to be the manager of shocker. She's just the one bringing him in but they're building up. Shack versus cody and apparently jade was on w. ease radar and they never pulled the trigger and so here she is ricochet was on their radar forever but for whatever reason they just never took him for a long time and then brandy by the way she was not happy with his jade out. They're stroking her husband's hair so she came out and she cut the promo of a lifetime on this woman. It was awesome. It was the best promo of her career. Martinez and jon moxley. They're building up the big match which is coming up on december second. So they're doing it free on television. I know everybody has a million theories as to why i don't know why maybe we'll find out around december second natural neighborhoods butcher blade but was a lot of fun. And he got his revenge on the blade after the whole bunny storyline. So that's all done matt. Hardy basically told sami dude. You lost two a legend and you got the rub so go do something with it. So they're very strongly teasing that. Sammy is gonna go baby face sooner rather than later. Jeff wardlaw inducted into the hall of awesome. That's later on down the road. Inner circle and they're going to go to las vegas next week so next week. Eight w it is the inner circle in las vegas with half the inner circle not even wanting mgm there. But he's trying to buy their loyalty shoot by the way to there will be a sound stage of vegas. They're actually going there. Yeah we had the young bucks. A pill apologizing alex martinez. They face top-flight next week. They were going to do this week. And they actually even sent out a deal about it. And then retracted. Because apparently everybody's beat up so they're gonna give them another week to heal up. We had shawn spears beating. Scorpio sky with the loaded glove. We had conti beating red velvet and then in the main event it was penta and phoenix killing each other. Tearing off their masks as he announces. Were afraid that this team was gonna break up. And eddie kingston was just loving every second of it. And then after pinta wins kingston actually tries to break up the two brothers which leads to the return of pop point by the way unabashedly. He'll not even a tease of a baby face. So they'll be rolling down the road. The pox debut is next week against the blade very quickly on the get over this very quickly. We'll talk about it. After the break we talked about the leeann rough thing we had fantasma versus jake atlas. They had a match at halloween havoc. Fantasma beats him. Jake handlers beats up some due to the pipe and earns himself a rematch and then he goes in and fantasma crew gets booted out. So it's a one on one fair fight and fantasma beats him clean in the middle. What all right. Whatever we have raquel gonzales. Zay lead never takes place. They advertise in deliver because instead boa comes out. Raquel beats him up because is not there and then some old dude comes out and he puts a mark on his hand and elbow is worried. No idea what's going on here. Candice beat tony storm teddy got a week and now they're beating her. I was upset about them. Beating ember moon. Well same story here bro. What is going on dexter. Loomis timothy thatcher by favorite dexter lewis matching forever because he just had a wrestling match timothy thatcher. One however and they're going with dexter loomis versus kane grimes with mumbo jumbo not happy about that and finally at the end loney birch beat xango. Speak the hell out of the baby faces. I guess we've got a six man coming. We talk about all this more. After the break observer live auto body is colliding with a shortage of licensed tax.

Us only while supplies last. You're listening to wrestling observer. Live with bryan alvarez and mike zimmer. Vv on the sports byline broadcasting network show alvarez observer live reveal some wrestling observer dot com a couple of people on twitch upset about no phone calls here today but this has nothing to do with a ryan or anybody else on sunday. The fact is we got a million things to talk about. And we'll do calls on a day where we have less to talk about which is not going to be tomorrow by the way because tomorrow is a packed show. You've got chico elenora on the program as well as the mighty and ferocious the mighty ferocious brody king. It's coming up tomorrow. Now we got a million people talking about all of this year. So let's begin tony. Kahn clarified himself with another tweet about an hour ago that the shift in the balance of power is an ongoing series of events which supposedly started last night is really putting over and i guess excited about the next couple of months. Well we'll see we'll see tone. Lok tony tony. Tony look stop tweeting. Don't double down into just let let the professionals that you have take care of that for you. Let let somebody at tnt tell you what tnt dramas seems to be a very friend of aew still still proudly Telling everyone in prime time television. Darby allin is their champion. Let them take care of this stuff. You don't have to put yourself out there for everything. Well you know. You're the face of the company. You don't have to do this all the time. Yes but again if tony kahn honestly believes that what he has booked unplanned between now and march is in fact going to shift the balance of power and wrestling. He's welcome to say that like the deal. Here's the deal with promoter hyperbole. everybody okay that's what it is. That's what it is. You may agree with it and you may not. That's different than a promoter. False advertising. If i say if i say the last night's observer radio let's say you have not heard last night's observer radio okay. I heard it because i was on it. And there's a story about roddy piper on last night's observer radio okay for those. You heard it if i come on this show today and i say you know what last night was the greatest episode of wrestling observer. Radio there has ever been. You've got to go listen to that. Okay if you go listen to it. And you've built up all these expectations and you don't think it was very good. You're going to get mad at me. But guess what. If i actually thought it was the greatest episode of observer radio like it doesn't matter if you think that i'm being hyperbolic if that's what i actually thought. Now if i say last night on observer radio go listen to it. Because i'm going to tell you the main event this year's wrestlemainia and who's going to win and you'll be shocked and you call listen to the show and it's not mentioned one time. Well that's pure bs right there. But toni may believe that what he has planned between now and march is going to turn this around between mainstream media for shack and whatever booking scenario. He may actually believe that. If you don't believe it. That's fine like i said i wouldn't have tweeted that. But if that's his honest opinion he has every right to the tweet that and face the consequences if all wrestling fans watched the show. And they're like bro. what were you talking about. That's your right as well. Everybody has a right in this situation. This is very different from false advertising. Which a promoter should not do. No they should not. But you know. We've heard great promoters in our lifetime. Bob arum don king vince mcmahon. You know sometimes. I wanna say sometimes less is more but i think is this really. Look one you've already changed the balance of power l. But they have shifted a lot of power. You know you can snicker and laugh and kind of go. Well more promoter hyper. It doesn't matter he was talking. You know people. We're looking at it in the scope of last night and not much shifted. And now if you've been watching wrestling all over the world it was it was a fantastic match but you would look at that in hindsight. And what are you going to say that. Mr perfect has no credibility because it wasn't actually the greatest match of all time. That guy probably thought. I'm going to go in there. And we're gonna have the greece match of all time and they bust their ass and they had a fantastic mansion. Maybe when he was over the guy thought was the greatest match of all time. So there's that aspect of it and also circus. Oh let's go to ringling brothers. The greatest show on earth. That's what the promoter said you're gonna come to the greatest show on earth or maybe you've been to cats on broadway and you go. That wasn't a great show on earth. You know what. I take my daughter to ringling brothers and bro. That's the greatest show she's ever seen in her life. It's a promoter promoting what he believes you think you think bob ringling or whatever. His name is when he says it's the greatest show on earth. You think that guy thought row. This show sucks. But i mean damn it. I'm gonna call it the greek. No that guy thought. It was the greatest show on earth. If tony kahn thing so what he's doing is going to shift. The balance of power has every right to think that. If you don't think that that doesn't mean that that guy does it have any credibility it means you disagree if tony concepts next wednesday on dynamite goldberg versus iraq and you tune in and you'll get it that's ruining your credibility because that's not an opinion issue. That's the guy flat out lied with facts. Why are we wasting time on this. Dude that's what i wanna know. Cats on broadway was pretty good. Though i went to that was very good enough. I'd say was the greatest show on earth. I've seen many services. So i go to the cirque du soleil when it's over. I could say bro. You gotta go. It's the greatest show on earth every surface. And you don't like it as much as me and then you gonna say bryan. You've got no credibility it was not the greatest show on earth. I think i thought it was some wanna have. Anybody can not go to any cirque show and then not being that. That was the greatest show that they ever saw their. I've seen some good search shows. Let me tell you. Hey good example. I've seen that one. What makes up a bad one. A bad one but listen okay. So beatles love vegas. If you're a fan of the beatles and you go beatles love in vegas you're gonna come out of that thing and you're gonna say bro. This was the greatest show on earth. You've got to go the show. Well i love the beatles. And all. But i also was a gymnast and a wrestling fan and what i want to see when i go to show is all of the crazy stunts and moves and quite frankly if you go to beatles love you're going to see less of that than you would see at a different cirque show so if you tell me that beatles love is the greatest show on earth and i go there and i watch it in. It's really good but they didn't do flips for me. He expect me to go out of that thing and gopro you. You've got no credibility you have no credibility anymore because that wasn't the greatest show on earth. No that's a difference of opinion. That's what that is absolute like yelling at a wall i am. It's a wall of text on the on on the switch wall. Here i can imagine what your your text like right now coming in over the the line is well to. This is what it reaction. You're getting into twitch. chat person. Says he didn't know he says. Tony kahn gets excited sometimes. He's excited about his product. It's not the end of the world. Don't azam shame him. Never heard allied. God is this where we're at now enthusiasm. Shaving people actually not to do that. And that's what i'm saying. I mean we really got to give essays about that now as a grown ass man who drinks big white claws like. I don't think we have to like shield. This man you know the beating that he takes the press in england for his football club is world football club and then his american football club he gets a pretty good beating over that too. But i don't know if we necessarily have to shield him from any reaction that he gets. I think he's kind of built for it his family's built for at this point. I'm not trying to defend the guy in that way. But i mean if you listen we could go. We did an observer. Radio with tony kahn. Okay listen go listen to that show and then told me that you don't believe that this guy thinks that his booking scheme for the next four months it's going to shift the balance of power and wrestling this guy so excited this very different that trying to screw you and promising you. Something in deliberately not delivering. The problem is. It's like people that want to talk about new japan pro wrestling and not necessarily understand the whole thing. Look not everything has got to be compared to wwe. Not everything is in the universe of wwe or even worse in the snow. Globe of vince mcmahon it. I think we all because of the monster that. Wwe vince occasionally. People will do that too often. Think i'm taking this bait bro. Not a chance you dare you. Person here says commentary. The end of dynamite made a big deal about officials keeping eddie separated from part because he was not cleared to wrestle after a brutal moxley match last week. Simultaneously advertise blade. who sported in absolutely gruesome cringe crimson. Mask this week in fact wrestling with fog next week. Well if we're really gonna do this thing here. The guy got a cut on his head. That's an internal injuries. Eddie i mean maybe you got an infection from all those puncture wounds. We don't know anything all we know. Just like real life that dr cleared the blade. the doctor didn't clear kingston great down your storyline. Any pro noah. Blade was a throwback to every single wrestling magazine cover in the seventies and eighties. That's what that was and you could say maybe it was a little bit too much or something like that. I didn't have a problem with it. I have more of a problem with. Aws because they're allowed to shoehorning in swear words like when they are required. Go ahead and do them but they seem to put them in there and then they get missed by the sensors and then that turns into a bad comedy you know it turns into something minor league but it does turn into goofiness and it takes away so i think that's worse than anything. I mean blade. Ages lived up to his name. Person-years says as a prediction for the omega moxley match switched the title on tv. I think this will lead to moscow into japan for wrestle kingdom so we can trump title also. It is pack not pock. Its hard over that when those two things here first off i bet you twitch homeys good money if i interviewed pock this show and he said his own name he would say poc and not pack a bench anything. That's number one in any with bro and number two yes. That was what everybody was concluding today. They must be doing this on television. Because then moxley is going to go to japan and quarantine for two weeks. Listen maybe but i don't see twenty con booking. His biggest match ever around allowing mocks leak to go to new japan plus actually going to japan over the holidays and maybe leaving his wife at home. I'm skeptical of this back in a moment. It's reliant okay. I just need you to listen to me. I know that a lot of times mom. It might not seem like. I'm listening to you but i am. I hear you and what you see really does matter to me. I mean let's be honest. No kid likes rules. But i get why we have. I hear you. And i know it's because you care all the talks we've had over the years including what you've told me about not using alcohol and other drugs they stick with me and believe it or not.

You finding life robert dull dreaming again exotic places wishing you were somewhere else. We offer you escape today. With the performance of john bainer as isherwood williams escaped. Brings you one of the most unusual and terrifying stories of recent years. George stewart's powerful novel earth abides some morning tomorrow morning. Let's say if you should have waked to a man dead world where virtually all of human life in destroyed from the face of the earth leaving behind only buildings bridges machines. If you should awake to such a world tomorrow morning what would you do. Where would you go. This is the year. Three name is isherwood williams. Three years since. I returned from the lonely modern country of northern california to find the mankind at virtually vanished from the earth. Some unknown viruses discouraged him from his high place. Among ammos is great cities were tunes. Entire civilizations crumbling. I toured the emptiness that had once been called. America the silent towers of manhattan for the golden gate bridge. I saw ten human being still alive in the fourth month. After my return to san francisco. I saw light on. Nob hill was there who became my wife year one past. Call it the year of the baby. You're to call. The year of the rats out was year three m baby and i were struggling for existence amid the fast to king wealth of san francisco. Now be careful. Kevin jansen wrong number of the biggest food store on market street wrong. There's no private property anymore. This city this grocery store. It's all ours now. It's burqa this. Please rats left their mark here. All right there's the answer to that death. The eight all the food that could get out and they ate each other familiar pattern. Species grows dominates the earth. For short time then dies come on take a look at the bottles and the canned goods issue. Look the labels are gun meeting. Well we'll just have to try to guess at the contents by the shape of can bottles bottles of real lemon juice. Wine should be corned. Beef bucket it all tons of it. We could live just this forever. Oh no we can't be scavengers forever. That's why the rats died and we've got to grow things we've got to bring something new into the world we'll come on. Let's get some of this stuff home owners during that year. And i found whatever we need it for ourselves in the baby and the empty silence stores of san francisco. We lived on the spoiling supplies of a million people one evening just after dusk i suddenly noticed a strange. We've ring glow in the sky over the downtown area. The city i called him to the window. It was a smell of smoke in the air. Fire san francisco is on. Fire is something we can do know. There were three square. Miles of flame started. This will never know oily rags. Basements and gasoline exposure could be in one thousand causes when it reached the house. No i don't think so. Winds blowing away from his. It'll burn itself out. They are to come away from the window. M m do you smell gas. Know that smells like it's me. Open the door to the home. Yeah hey hey. Eighty hall is filled with it. We've got to get out of here. Gasline must have burst one spark in this place like a bomb safe from the fire. Escape m here here. I'll take the baby. Just hang onto the rail. I walk slowly. We started down the fire escape and the distance flames were cutting the heart of the city. Parts of chinatown. All ready gone kept going down. The street level started running second. A spark could blow. The building of dust ran out of breath tearing approach against the wall. All right so it's all over. We're gonna be alright and moved to another section of town that had been spared by the fire the days past weeks m. and i were growing tired of the canned foods wanted some fresh vegetables and fruit. We needed a car. One day i found a jeep. Nick arrive in the storeroom. I found new tires to replace the right one. Deepen standing on after two years. Hard to say no mechanic all cars to choose from. We pick something like this. I always wanted a convertible. Maybe a cadillac packard. More useful more durable size so we tied him. Try it step on the starter.

The college basketball season starts today. Get hype love to have you back here. I'm matt norlander before we get going with this episode. Had a wonderful time talking to my great beloved friend gary parrish. You are really going to enjoy this. We set the table for all the games. You got to know about on wednesday on thanksgiving. We're going to get you geared up but just wanted to give you a heads up so you didn't get thrown by the different music to start this podcast. The oji listeners of the eye on college basketball podcast going back three five seven eight or nine years. No that every so often. I changed the intro music. Keep it fresh. Keep it different. Don't like to get stuck in old ways. Don't want to be static. Didn't want to just drop it on you out of nowhere on this episode or just give me a quick heads up. It's like it's like if you're a doctor who fan the regeneration you're getting a new doctor shouts to my who've out there so with that being said i'll let david tennant explain it to you. Thank god friendship. Great wisdom and consolation to the soul in tight. What's that all there it's scary. It's wednesday november twenty fifth. Two thousand twenty. Welcome back to the cbs. Sports college basketball podcast. Where we sometimes discuss campbell fighting leaked black matt. Norlander is here with the family reached opening day. Two thousand twenty twenty one college basketball season things are scheduled to get underway very soon. Norlander has tested negative for covid nineteen. He has survived quarantine. He's going to be inside the mohegan sun for games today. Norrland howard things inside mohegan sun. They are ideally sterile. I mean it's been. It's been bumpy here. I'm good though. I'm negative. Guess saliva test this morning. Hopefully that comes back negative. But i was starting to lose my mind district perish. I mean i got here. It's now wednesday have officially lost track of the days but it is november twenty fifth the season. Hello it's air so monday night test immediately. I'm standing in line behind the main basketball team. Richard barron the head. Coach has got a little little guitar with them. Like i should have brought my guitar. We can jam session socially distance. I do my test go right to my room. Just hunker down quarantine immediately then. Next day comes. I was told ten. Am ten am. We'll get the test results back. Gp no no ten am where it comes in. Hey might be. It might be closer to one. Well then get word. Stephen f. austin had a non essential person and it's traveling party test positive so it's out by the way apparently got really close to not even being able to get on a plane. They always had to drive from connecticut back to texas but they got a plane. What have been the worst. Then i'm told main has at least one positive it's leaving and then i started thinking. Well this is terrible for a couple of reasons. Because i was in line behind main and they got a positive and i tested with the main basketball team and why did main get. Its test back. But i have not yet come to find out get this parish and how about this scenario and how it could affect games going forward this season so this is from a source main tested on friday it has not had a negative test positive test and weeks and weeks and weeks the test for pcr. On friday lagged. They didn't have it in time. So then they sit by sunday so well we have to get a test before we gonna mohegan so they all take rapid tests on sunday. All of the rapid tests are negative. They're like okay. We're good to go. They come to mohegan by the time out. They test you at mohegan after they test. That mohegan one test from friday finally comes back as positive then they find out that all of the tests from monday at mohegan were also negative. So main took three tests. Everyone in the program. Everyone was negative except one person who had one positive but the president was wasn't gonna mess around with it. They're like nope not even chance knee. They came all the way here turned around went home twelve hours brutal now. That is going to be the college basketball season which is tall state when all the way to sioux falls get i believe multiple positive tests where they get their boom. You're out go back to wichita poor shockers. They lose their coach. They the kip get. Get right back home. And that's that's just the way this is going to be david warlock who is the director a media coordinator for march madness for somebody who's been around the sport for a long long time had a a pretty spot on tweet this morning. He tweeted the following. The season starts today. Think of it. As taking a flight there will be screenings delays and cancellations. Sometimes it will feel like you're in the middle seat between two large band and behind. The person who fully reclines their seat but eventually will reach our destination. I i think that's basically it. I mean since we last talked on monday. Yeah like tennessee has had to also cancel the jimmy v. we lost tennessee gonzaga game Like vcu. i thought was an interesting sort. Vcu wakes up on monday morning thinking. They are opening season wednesday in knoxville against tennessee. Bar people at tennessee test positive that game gets canceled. Somebody gets kicked out of the crossover classic. In sioux falls they call. Vcu say come on out here. So vcu goes from on monday morning thinking. It's traveling to knoxville to play tennessee to on tuesday morning. Traveling to sioux falls. South dakota to play. I don't have the bracket in front of me but but somebody the whole wacky. Yeah how about this. I wasn't surprised to see you there. Because as i am getting ready to leave on monday trying to leave my house like packing up literally have my dress shirt sportcoats in one hand and a mike stand in the other. Because i'm gonna have a for. Hq i've got to have Mike standing all this stuff Mike roads the vcu coach calls me and he goes. Hey who's organizing stuff mohegan sun. I said what he's like. Yeah what can we do. You think we can get any games there. I'm like can you be on a plane and fifteen minutes because you got to. You have to secure negative tests. And i think you would have to fly tonight. So i wasn't shocked and so obviously that didn't happen with mohegan sun but i wasn't shocked to discover that. Vcu was getting after it. That's six different teams in that field. It has obviously been consistently wild as we speak. I broke this late. Tuesday night but like the baylor hall game is now off and baylor is trying to play washington and some other teams in las vegas this weekend. What is going what is going on here. it has been it. Listen it's they should get a little multi team event at foothill foot. Hail exa- exactly so it's been it's been nuts by the way i told him i'd give him a show. I have to give a shout to jay bilas. Because as i was sitting in quarantine for twenty two and a half hours and i was told a lunch would be dropped off at my door because i can't leave the room and they were like i don't necessarily order room service so they have these like prepared meals here for us. Bilas got out like a few hours before me. Hooked me up. You remains the best there so he he was like we can't have died on us. I'm like yeah. It's it got really andy. Katz night is trading text messages. Hour after hour after hour has been Quite an experience here but before we get to the games in terms of mohegan setup. Gp it's not a true bubble. I can technically walk through what they call back of house to get to where i need to get to. It's twice as long of a walk. But i didn't lie otherwise i gotta go. I gotta use common elevators. Walk through like some parts of the casino. It's not greatest setup. It's not terrible but they are running it extremely well. The arena is spacious. And i'm looking forward to the games there. I'm looking forward to how this all kind of goes off. I will say i attended. Virginia practice popped in boston. College there for rhode island was there for arizona state and that just felt wonderful. I gotta be honest. The players spirits were super high. I had a column go up on wednesday. If you haven't read it you can pop. Read it whenever you like. An addition to gp's refreshing on the top twenty five and one teams but the players. You know i understand. There's there's been no shortage of criticism cynicism poking fun at college hoops as if it's the only sport that's been going through this far from it. It just has the most teams three hundred and fifty seven teams. Now technically there's like what three forty five the. Nfl has thirty two and then tell us thirty. One nba has thirty college. Football has one hundred and thirty there. So many more teams are going to be so many more postponements but the point i'm making here. Is that the players you know. Talk to coaches. They're they're all saying that their players have just been patient going through all this stuff. Imagine we're different. Gp we're parents fifties encroaching on my forties. Here we are. We are at different stages of life. Imagine going through this at eighteen nineteen twenty years old when you know if you can track the corona virus. Just the odds are ever in your favor but they still have to abide by all this stuff. They finally have a season like this is for them. They deserve this. They want to do this. They are opting in their effectively choosing to play game for free but they they want it because one being an athlete as part of their purpose part of their identities specifically at this stage of their life and so to see these guys practicing after practice smiles last goofing off. Having a good time rhode island was in tremendous spirits. I don't know what's going to happen today. But if they are good to go and give arizona state of game. I will not be shocked. David cox ran a hell of a practice there. So that was just really great. To see late. Tuesday into tuesday evening just the camaraderie and the spirit of all this and it kind of reminded like we've been waiting forever but specifically for these eight thousand nine hundred twenty twenty one year olds. Gp like they're finally going to get a chance after college basketball men's and women's only sport major sport in america tea more individual did not crowned a champion and we'll now crown a champion in two thousand twenty. Finally the seasons here. Yeah like listen. We've discussed this all off season This is not the way. I would have done it. Di- i would not be playing on november twenty fifth and i would not be playing non league games. I would not be having a san francisco. Umass will get lull game. How umass lowell. There we go. I would not be having a san francisco. Umass lowell game mohegan sun on the afternoon before thanksgiving. I think most of this is silly. That said i have never argued against having season. I just wouldn't have done it this way. I would have done conference. Only starting in january that leads into ncaa tournament bubble. But whatever i've got no interest in in the screaming. I told you so every time. We have to cancel a game. Every time team has to get shut down. I'm not promising you. I won't do it every once in a while. I'm just promising you. I'm not going to do it every time i instead. I'm going to enjoy what we have. We're not going to have as many games this season as we would normally have but we are going to games and they're starting today and so i'm fired up you're going to be in an arena. I'm gonna be in front of a television. Hopefully it'll it'll be a fun opening day and bleeds into a a fun thanksgiving day. We're gonna talk some games momentarily. What's happening at mohegan sun and also other notable games around the country today and tomorrow. We're going to do that next. I of check this out.

There's four games there today. I just wanna make sure everybody knows what's happening there. We don't need to spend much time on some of them baby much time on any of them but the first game. There's gonna tip at one thirty eastern towel sin. Virginia and i guess the most notable thing there is for julia enters technically on eight game winning streak because it closed the regular season with eight straight wins last season and then of course it is sam. Hauser's debut marquette transfers set out last year per normal. Ncwa transfer rules. He is now eligible expected to be the cavaliers best player. So it'll be fun to i. Look at him in tony bennett system. Yeah no doubt about it. I mean that's not originally mohegan sun was set to have the first game of the season. That's technically no longer true. It's by the time everyone's listening to this east tennessee state abilene christian. I think the the tip off. Okay there we go. Gp's on top of it But hey it's virginia though and and just wanna see frankly how badly. They crushed house. I was teasing coach. Pat scary the and coach about all this because they open two seasons ago. Virginia opened at home against house. And that was. The season virginia went on to win the national championship. And they won by like thirty one points in that game. pat scary guaranteeing. It's not going to be a thirty one point spread in this one. We shall see. I would think that's going to be the case. Tyson's actually a fairly solid c. team. So i'm it's the first game here at mohegan and no one has had any scrimmages. The season's been obviously ragged rugged and and just crooked. So i guess anything's possible. I mean even. Tony bennett told me on tuesday. Like he doesn't really quite what to expect. But it's virginia. They should win and i don't what to expect. I can tell tony what to expect. They're going to win by twenty to thirty and they're gonna hold gallison to like thirty one percent shooting. It's gonna be rough. I i think towns struggle to get the forty five points. But i'm not convinced it's going to be more than twenty points. We'll see though. But hey there really. I don't know we'll see we'll see on that but it is virginia. Everyone's got curiosity about what is going to step into that offense and it's a pretty good team so i'm just. I'm i'm intrigued with that. Just because thousands not like it's going to be a top three team minutes league in the so there's a chance actually could be intriguing and plus s. Someone made sure to mention to me because house and by the way scary was a riot but he was saying one of his one of his coaches like they had four different opponents given to them and like forty eight hour period. And like once. You get an opponent like you have to start the scouting process like you have to prepare your team and like a kept changing like every twelve to eighteen hours. It's been absurd and obscene in some ways. So that's just a. That's an intriguing thing In the backdrop but someone brought up to me with virginia. Well what's the worst that can happen. It's just a team from maryland. Baltimore county what. Baltimore county maryland. Like what what's you know. Oh yeah that's right you. Un un be so. That's the first game at mohegan. Sun did at four o'clock eastern. It's the much anticipated. Showdown between san francisco and lau low low cuts to law. All i don't know now first of all this is great because there are colloquialism. So you know that. You're not from the northeast. But the same would go. There's definitely a town or two or six in mississippi. That could be pronounced. Certain way that i would get wrong immediately. But yes umass lowell. Umass slow you. Don't know anything about tupelo. Mississippi do i do. I do know it's called tupelo. I do know that. Do you know the most notable thing about tupelo trivia no birthplace of elvis aaron press loam boom there we go not bad not bad not bad at all and then of course everybody knows the king moved to memphis massachusetts enrolled at umass lowell. Okay we did Whatever about this game. Although i will take a second to point out todd goldens doing a nice job there. He's thirty five years old former auburn assistant. One twenty two games last season had san francisco finishing seventy th at kim palm. Their preseason number eighty three it. Kim pump so i'm always interested in young guys that get opportunities and then do well know it's only through one season because doing a good job so far they are. I'll i'll have quick on francisco. But i can you name the nickname for umass lowell. Probably not show. Yeah there the staff. Stop with me here. River hawks hawks. The river hawks. Oh my goodness. San francisco is capable of being a top three team in the w this season. We'll see how saint mary's byu in san francisco all shake out and if they are top three team they actually could. We could look up and they could be instantly determine where they so again just a mild intrigue this certainly game for the die hards there But whatever that's that's the second game. The big ones at night rhode island versus arizona state. That's got the best. That's the best head to head matchup today right. Gp you wanna argue ucla. San diego state on cbs sports. I'm talking like player versus player though. Like oh sure you get seven o'clock eastern arizona state rhode island. You get rimi. Martin against fats russell. Two of the better to the best point guards guards in the country correct both easily ranked in the top forty of our top one hundred players list. That's probably the best head to head match. And a today arizona state's gonna try and get game in the eighty s and certainly might be capable. They i mean he's got eight or nine or ten gifted gifted players. They've got josh. Christopher who is going to start. I'm intrigued to see what he does there. bobby hurley. Just he told me the teams good to go and he said he's starting to get some anxiety which is a good thing stomach starting to form into some butterflies less than twenty four hours per star of the game. That's great david cox. He admitted like listen. I i got to see what i'm gonna do with my rotations. I haven't even figured out. This was tuesday night. Haven't figured out truly my starting lineup yet. But if they can if they can mess him up Found the offensive end if rhode island kind of throw some junk at arizona state in frustration early. Then they're going to have a chance. There rhode island doesn't set up as a top three team in the ten this season but it does have some some decent talent there And some good length. So we'll see arizona this arizona state's chance to hear this week at mohegan sun to potentially make a ton of noise if you can win this game and then if villanova were to be boston college we'll get to in just a second and if it were to win that then that's a real. That's you know we had a couple of years ago. Asu had undefeated start through near the end of december can hurley duplicate. That we shall wait and see but yes the fats russell martin. That's the best had individual. We're going to have today and i just wanna see what josh christopher looks like. He's one of the best recruits in arizona. History he's the highest rated recruit that the program has had since james harden. So that's just another one that's your. That's your premier seven pm game right and you mentioned our top one hundred one players. Martin was number eight on that list. Fetch russell number thirty one. Nine thirty eastern at mohegan sun. Villanova boston college villanova. Pick i in the big east boston college. Pick next to last in the acc. So you know it's to power conference. Teams thought probably double digit victory for gay rights team. That's what i would suspect. I would suspect it as well Boston college does bring back winston tabs. Who was out all season. He is a legitimately like fairy good. Acc guard and then they have Stefan mitchell who returns technically i think is the statistically i'm going to have to have to include them wicked qualifiers here wicked I think he is the statistically most productive player returning in the acc. That isn't garrison brooks a unc. So they do have some guys but that does seem to be a mismatch but again we have the glory of really not knowing what we're going to get here on this opening day. Gp when you don't have scrimmages and coaches around just they're eager to start. But i think a lot of them are like. I don't really truly know what i'm getting. Because again just so many pauses starts and stops the rhythms have been different so we do have the potential. I think for some surprises and i wouldn't object to that. So those are the four games at mohegan sun. We'll bounce through a few other interesting match ups that are happening elsewhere around the country in sioux falls. South dakota two o'clock eastern this afternoon. You get memphis against saint. Mary's which is an interesting matchup for variety of reasons. It's the opening game. A penny hardaway's third season at his alma mater. Trying to take the tigers to the ncaa tournament for the first time since two thousand fourteen. You mentioned that pet scary was like we've had a million different opening day opponents. We've had scouted one team and then they're out we've got another one. They're out penny talked about this yesterday. You'll memphis was supposed to open state so we said we spent two weeks on ohio state fam- then they're gone. They get replaced with saint. Mary's so we're scouting saint. Mary's and then also west virginia then they take west. Virginia put west virginia on the other side of our bracket. So now we're having to scout northern iowa and western kentucky and saint mary. He's like we watch more film. I'm paraphrasing here. But we watch more fem on teams that we will never play than i ever thought that we would and so now. It's memphis saint. Mary's saint mary's finished twenty six and eight last season and half of their losses for the eight work to projected number one seeds. They lost three. Times wants to dayton top. Three scores from that team are gone. They don't return anybody who average more than six point six points or three point. six rebounds. Still kip palms got it. Projected like a four point memphis win so it should be a close game. And of course you get the the debut of the five star re-classed center mussa who i saw on twitter last night. It was a year ago today at lausanne collegiate school when he had a thirty two point. Twenty two rebound twenty one block game which is just ridiculous over under over under twenty one blocks in his college debut. We're going to go under. How about this over under four and a half blocks. Why not get a go for the season. No no foil tonight. Blocks versus saint. Mary's i would say under. Here's what i would say about mussa Obviously nobody's allowed in the gym for these workouts. And i i haven't seen him since he was playing at lausanne collegiate school but i was told that the net what somebody told me. He is probably. He's definitely memphis best. Nba prospect maybe not top five player on the team. Right now like his is. It's been slow. He's he's been slow picking things up a little bit like all he's done is just stand there. Be seventy tall with a billion foot wingspan and blocked shots on private school. Kids who look like my son he's ever rotate help. It's been a little slow. So i was told this. Do you remember what. James wiseman like in his opening game last season and i said yeah he goes. I was told not gonna look like that. So keep be awesome february but my understanding was it seemed unlikely he would be awesome in november. But we'll see one more note on memphis. They're still waiting on a possible waiver for deondraye williams the transfer from evansville and it. Just i don't want to go on a rampage here. But there's multiple players waiting on. Transfer waivers most notably at this point. Deondraye williams nike sunday at pitt and eljay figueroa at oregon and my understanding is that saint. John's cooperated with the figueroa deal. It's not a saint. John's issue there but with the andre williams evansville specifically athletic director mark. Spencer not cooperating and at pitt with savante. It's miami ohio not cooperating. Which is just ridiculous. Frankly the i've always thought it was ridiculous like you should always cooperate but in the middle of the pandemic when the rule is changing in january literally. No other basketball player will have to go through this next year or the year after that or the year after that. I don't understand why you wouldn't just honestly say what do you need me to say. What do you need me to sign. What do you need to do to help you get eligible. i'll do it. Marks pinchers point at evansdale. The athletic director is i d. I'm not gonna say that. Danny williams didn't have a scholarship available at our school to help him get eligible memphis. I'm not gonna lie. He wanted to be at evansville he could and like. That's the hill. You die on. Whatever just seems weird to me so same type of guy who will stand there and talk about. I'm for the student athletes. I put student athletes first. And then you've got an opportunity to help. A young man get eligible at a new school after his coach was fired for inappropriate conduct. And you're the person standing in the way. Like shame on him and shame on miami ohio for not helping nike eligible at pitt immediately. Yeah that's that's a rough look. There's no doubt about there. Are there are a few schools here and there that are still waiting on eligibility decisions and everyone wants you know frankly a week before the season starts and we're still hearing that it just shouldn't be the case but Just another topic for another time to continue on but yeah so saint. Mary's memphis is the first. I would qualify like virginia's howson like it's going to be a slow low scoring game so it could inherently maybe be close but saint. Mary's memphis that's the first game of the day where you're gonna wanna keep an eye on that two o'clock tip on. Espn out in south dakota before i get to the next game. I've got trivia tom for you by roy. Let's so the class of two thousand eighteen that zion williamson's class. So you can get. You can get an idea. Who's in that class trivia. Talk who is the highest rated recruit from that class. Who still playing college basketball. Was anyone in the top ten. Yes and they play today. Guess charles bassey. That's exactly norrland. How about that western kentucky against northern iowa four thirty eastern in-su faw the top six in the class of two thousand eighteen according to twenty four seven sports number one rj barrett number two cam reddish number. Three nazeer little number. Four bobo number. Five zion williamson number six charles bassey at western kentucky. Fifteen points nine rebounds. Last season only play. Tim gaines because he fractured his tibia. In december that was season over. But he's back now. We'll play today and western kentucky northern iowa like. I think he's picked to win. Northern iowa is not picked to win the nbc. But these are two teams that are like in the seventies kim palm so pretty comparable teams if you wanna watch. We've talked about this. Could be a blow at. That could be brought up. You want to watch it. What should be competitive game. Western kentucky northern iowa should be a competitive county northern iowa will nbc by the way they got aj green. Who's a wonderful shooter. Wonderful player austin five really solid. Low post player. He's like traditional big there. That has the potential to be a very very good watch. So that's the second game of south dakota and western kentucky has kind of. We've been waiting for them to really hit that level where it's like. Oh expense rick stanbury. Bury's got a got a team there that can actually win a game to determine they just simply haven't gotten that far yet but yes they are projected to be just a notch above north texas in conference usa and be the best team in the league. And certainly that's that's the premier mid major match up that we're going to have on opening day then tonight arguably the best game of the day. Tim thirty eastern. Ucla at san diego state. It's on cbs sports network. Ucla ranked in the top twenty five san diego state coming off an incredible year where they obviously were the best two loss undefeated team in america. Lose malachi floyd but still good and kim projects this san diego state sixty seven. Ucla sixty six. So if you're looking for a place where a routine could lose to an unranked team. That's probably the best possibility. Ten thirty eastern tonight. Yeah i mean you got san diego state coming off. A two loss undefeated season just incredible unprecedented history-making even and brian gonna try and do it again and he's going to try and do it against the greatest coach in the history of ucla basketball amazing game. We got here on cbs sports network. Yes the best will be safer. It is a bit weird but this is going to be weird season that we are talking about the start of the college hoops season. And we're not talking about the champions classic that will be next week. That's only been you know a thing. That's been a thing if you will start the season with the champions classic for the past few years but Schedules and covert stuff. All necessitated that to be the case. So we don't we don't truly have a marquee game on opening day so it is has a little less juice but ucla. San diego state is a very good game. They should both easily be tournament teams. Ucla is going to be there with oregon arizona state as the best team in the pack twelve. So we'll get an early look at two of those three teams out in the pac. Twelve and san diego state though it loses malachi. Flynn there's still am. I i think matt mitchell be a wonderful wonderful mountain west player first team league all kind of guy and that is going to be a. It'll be a home game for san diego state but obviously the factor is gone there. And so that's going to be. That's going to be interesting. I'm interested to see as just a side note. Just how mohegan sun feels today watching this. It's very spacious in there right now because all the bleachers are back. They've got the sign up and around. The the the benches are spaced out. You've got the glass partitions there so it's going to be a game like it's gonna feel like a game but it will just be different and i'm waiting to see if they're going to have general white noise crowd noise like what that what's going to happen with that so that will be something else to keep in mind here as we start the season just the environment that these teams are going to play in if you're in a neutral court versus if you're in a home court i know michigan state's gonna have some sort of thing going on there inside breslin with its game. So that's just a that's that's another thing to keep an eye on by the way. Those are the games to know. But i feel compelled to say that when we podcast next. We'll have one for your friday. You know you have been as as you've been is in on south dakota status. I think any member of the national media and they didn't have to travel far. They have a seven o'clock tip against west. Virginia that's a preseason top ten team so just west virginia show up and look like an elite big twelve team. And we'll south dakota state. Which is the best team in the summit. Actually be able to give him a good run. That's just your once. Iki keep an eye on and under the radar game and then it also asked me if i have a jack. Rabbits pull over that golf. If i want to do you do you have a do you have jack rapids pullover that you go if you want to do. I own wind. That's mike dom monitor boom okay. But more than that. Nate wolters see. The thing is not more no more than that more than pack. Take that back. I'm not gonna have my disrespected like that on the pocket State walters came before mike dom he made that program okay mic. Don's nothing without nate wall. And i'll say it right now and i'll say it again. Nate nate up. Put a poll up right now on your twitter or clout who is king jackrabbit walkers or mike going to happen in a minute. I'm going i'm going to. I'm at tweeted. I'm going to tweet it out without advanced warning or context. Which is the best to do. And i'm going to put it up there. Hey i got one more for you by the way we rolled on this podcast by the. Gps there's one more game that we have to. We have to let people know about you. Know which one i'm talking about. No no no idea. Well i'm surprised i have. I have no idea okay. Four o'clock eastern on. Espn two and this was. This is an awesome. Little deal here. Kate cunningham in oklahoma state are playing at ut. Arlington cunningham is from arlington. Might boynton willing to start his season with a road game against ut arlington team. That's not top one hundred quality but it's not it's not a complete afterthought either and that's just cool for cunningham to be able to start in his hometown. He could be the number one pick next year. He could be the best player in college basketball this season. So that's just another one to keep an eye on four o'clock we're again would be interesting to see what he does there. And if he's gonna wind up being a talking point when we meet again. Friday podcast so Again for all of the own cynicism throwing around here. I will remind you that there are more than eighty games between division one teams that have been scheduled as of us recording this. They're happening on wednesday. So we do have games across across the gamut here and and good wants tomorrow as well. Well let's just touch because we're not gonna talk again till friday. There is a high profile. Thursday game twelve thirty eastern tip this is the first matchup of ranked teams that we're gonna have for the two thousand twenty twenty one college. Basketball season is number one gonzaga against number six. Kansas in fort myers florida this coming. Two days after andrew. M hart who. By the way. I've talked about all those waivers. Like deondraye williams. Aj figure heart. Didn't even really want one. Like i don't care i'll sit out school. And then they get back announces yesterday. Andrew m hard is cleared to play this season. he has started. Maybe every game the past two seasons very if not every game nearly every game. The past tuesday's at florida last season average. Eleven point two point. Five point six assists. It's the rich get richer. Gonzaga was number one without andrew. M hard the clearly updated the top twenty five and one this morning. They stayed there there. You andrew jalen backcourts. Pretty pretty strong in the front court is also strong. Gonzaga's loaded. i'm not going to go in. And edit the post but gonzaga's now the number one team in college like this. I just don't let villanova ballor. They're in. They're in their virginia's rights. You know maybe sitting at the table as well as all. That's logical and practical right now. Numbered getting added to this roster. Like it's really hard to argue against gonzaga as the number one team. And now that's the case with your rankings. Ap top twenty five already had it. And then when the metrics updated can tom tour vic team rankings. They all jumped gonzaga. There's now a universal number one heading in so we do have that. This is a great match up. When the orlando bubble popped schedule went awry Once that news got to self and mark few they immediately got on the phone and said let's just try and play. Let's you know this has been a ridiculous with all of this. Espn stuff and trying to make these games happen in teams bouncing all this stuff. Let's just make you. And i let's talk right now. We wanna play yes. Let's do it where we wanna play. Let's make it happen. They got it done. It would be wonderful for college. Basketball of this game was actually played on the first day of the season. It's not that's fine. It is a wonderful thanksgiving day. Jeep tomorrow thanksgiving by the way. What is i heard. It doesn't even heard that it doesn't even feel that should be happening. But whatever actually health officials don't think it should happen. Yeah well. I mean it's on the calendar. Not what on the counter no matter what but for the first time ever with i my family's we're not leaving our house. There have been many times. Where i've been out of town on thanksgiving but this is going to be the one time where we don't go to my mom's we as when i was younger we'd go to my grandparents when they passed. We would go to my mom's or my dad's or even my cousins. My family we have. We have thanksgiving dinner catered and and we're going to have it right here so it is. It's a different thanksgiving sure. Yeah and everyone. Please stay safe with all this in please Take care of each other. Take care of yourself. Stay healthy make wise decisions and and all that good stuff but yes. It's on a personal hotel. This was also true. Three years ago when i went to the. Pk eighty on thanksgiving. It just feels weird for me to not be around my family on thanksgiving but we have college hoops. I'm excited for that and kansas. Gonzaga is a wonderful thanksgiving game on. Obviously you know. Nfl games and thanksgiving go hand in hand and that will certainly be the case for the majority of the country tomorrow. But even if you are a die-hard college hoops fan. Who loves himself some. Nfl or herself some nfl. Just like i do it. Just it's hard to be kansas. That's a that's a lovely game. And i wanna see. Frankly how kansas matches up. I think when we wind up. Let's make make a prediction here. Let's make a prediction. How about this first game. We'll go with this one. let's predict the ending. I kind of think in. Kansas isn't going to be able to keep this within. Like seven or eight points. I'm gonna gonna say gonzaga. I'll say gonzaga seventy eight kansas sixty eight. That's my prediction. What do you got. I will go gonzaga sixty nine nice kansas sixty five okay. So you got you got a little bit of a closer. We'll see after. And i don't even know how much it is going to play. He might. But i don't know but there's no reason for him not to he's been practicing just like everybody else. That's that's that's true. I'll be yeah i'll be. I'll be intrigued to see how that goes down. The poll is up by the way. This is ridiculous right now. Already raised it correctly. I hope you said who is king. Jack crab i did tweet it out without notice. I tweeted out without notice. Just simply who. King jack rabbits and i gave the two and i gave the two options. And this is what we have right now. And i just can't believe i'm refreshing hoping the hoping that margins chad this is incorrect. By the way. Walters came before dom dom doesn't even get into south dakota state. If it's not for the kingdom that walters built yeah we're at fifty nine forty one right now. Mike don with one hundred and thirty four votes. I'm going to need the listeners. To listen to this go back. Find the pod find. Find the poll on my twitter account. You know what to do. Nate walters nate. Walters was drafted. I think he made the nba dom dom right now. Mike gums wherever he wants. Yeah exactly wherever he wants to be. He's mike dot com. You can't get caught up on nate. Walters came before. Mike dom 'cause you know what else is true jarred legal came before i don't even know john john wooden came before mick cronin tweet this who is congruent. John wooden macron. It'll henderson came before scott drew. I can't bill henderson. Came before scott drew miserable record somehow to by the way with twenty five and one. You know. I've got to do like two cents on each team. You damn right. I got henderson. That's why that's so good. I did not read that yet but that is wonderful. A bill henderson. What's happening with that. There's no way our editor knew what the hell you were doing. It's like the three scores where team that would have been a number one seed in the incident play tournament that gives scott drew a realistic chance to take the bears to the final four for the first time since bill henderson. Did it in one thousand nine. I love bill clinton. Third somebody to look this up for me by the way. 'cause i spent like twenty minutes trying to figure out and i couldn't find it and i got frustrated. 'cause i can't do this anymore. Bill henderson left baylor program for a little while like he was baylor's coat and then he stepped baylor's coach didn't go anywhere and then baylor coach again. I don't know what happened to bill henderson. I know we lost him in. Nineteen seventy nine moment of silence for bill hinges. But i don't know where what i don't know. What accounts for that. Gap and bill henderson. Coaching careers. Somebody figured that out someone. Please get back to us on the bill. Hemmer texas scott about it. He does not know the bill henderson. Gap not i was like scott. You're in isolation you're not doing anything anyway Helping out here. What accounts for the gap and bill henderson's coaching career. I don't know i couldn't figure it out. No it's not. It's not on his wikipedia page. I couldn't get it in any. I just couldn't figure it out with kapiti page. Yes bill are you kidding me. The man with the two final fours. Yes see a wikipedia page. I guess i mean that's the worst poll out right now. Fifty nine forty one thoroughly. It's early count the votes you can't. We cannot stop this. Count right now you you sound. Like president trump. Now count the votes. Do not stop. do not stop do not. I need more precincts right now. I got i got a quote. Daniel frank shouts to you. Nate walters and i will die on this hill. Nothing against the great mike dom however that is correct. Mike dom was great robert daniels at sports and coding saint cloud minnesota represent great. Nate baby. you're damn right. I'm glad that people are tweeting about walter's but they're voting for mike. Don america has spoken is time to conceit. It's not just literally just starting to have got twenty four hours on this poll at matt norlander. Vote in the listen if you want to perish that's fine. What if this though the reason. Why is because peres wrote a column about mike dom like five years ago and so it's forever going to be that if he doesn't write a column on dumb it's just simply not the case not the case this is this is the real reason why you're all on be real. I love my. I love him like. He's my own jackrabbit. I wonder if the person next to me is like like what is this. What is's jerk screaming about. Who the hell is mike dom. And this due to shut the hell up already. No no nobody is. Nobody is wondering. Who is mike bomb. Everybody knows mike tom. He's king jackrabbit for crying out loud. He's king jackrabbit. You want you want. We need to probably publish this sooner than later because the season does start literally in like an hour. Ats's abilene christian baby. Oh yeah hey. That's the head coaching. Debut for jason. Shay it is the head. Coaching debut for jason shane. How so all right. I'm i'm fired up now. I'm gonna watch the coaching view of jason. Shay shout shout.

This is do keep on doing what you do rick. You're my favorite holiday favorites. I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass all oughta bumming. It's time to hear the truth about america's biggest challenges. You're listening to america off the rails with your host rick robinson. Just what day is guess what they is anybody. It is wednesday in my. Oh good evening everyone. Welcome to the program. Welcome back to the america. Thrill show it's been about two months since we've been on. The air actually may even be a little bit longer for this one. Those of you that have been hearing about everything that's been going on. I'm not gonna boy everybody with that again tonight. Some of you were joking about me for getting how to use the machine. Well in all fairness i haven't had a working machine and almost two months. Actually i just realized what was taking so long. I think i figured out why only half of the system is currently working right now. So i'll be working on that tomorrow before the return of the position of. Because i think i figured out why sounds are in playing when they come through the browser anymore. But on that note and hope everybody's having a great thank you so much for joining us. I do have a bit of an announcement. It looks like there may be some changes coming to the wednesday night lineup here. Pretty quick. don't wanna make anything official yet. But there's some news that just started coming down the pipeline. Once we get confirmation different little but again one thing everybody for hanging out with us this evening chat rooms pretty full on nights to thank you guys very much. It's been great to be back. Been gone for quite a while. I have missed every single. Juanita has an awful lot of you. Give me crap especially jeff because he had to redo the website again every clock night now. He hates me. Jeff i know you can't see it because i'm not doing video but i swear i'm making the motions of the world's smallest violin. Playing my heart bleeds for you. I know you've missed me. I really not now anyway. So it's not like there's any shortage of anything to talk about. But i'm not really sure where i want to go first the first of all let me. Just tell you guys. The last few months have been absolutely crazy. And i wanna thank everybody for their patients. Some of you have been reaching out via text message. Twitter facebook a bunch of different places checking on me and i really do appreciate that because it's been a really crazy few months things are finally starting to get back to normal normal ish anytime. I'm involved actually use the word just normal. Because i think but we are. We are getting things back to normal. As possible against starting next tuesday and rick will be returning at ten eastern america off the rails air at least two nights of the week on tuesday and wednesday at some point. I may actually go back to the idea. I had a few months ago before everything went sideways and start doing the right on sunday nights. Because that's when al usually does his local content as well and that's what the province joe was gun design for was kind of a mix between local and national because it was a show concept. It was designed around when i almost A morning show Couple of years ago and never really got to put it to us so we started thinking about trying to do it here and there just aren't enough hours in the day right now so i'm not exactly sure what my future holds but i am getting back to this as much as possible but again i mean honestly as of right now if we go back to doing daily dose five days a week plus the two nights of the week of the off the rails plus the robinson and in genetic. That's already fourteen hours a week of radio plus the alternating every other. So that's that's that's bordering on part-time job so mike just keep things there for a while. Because unfortunately i'm also now the jackass of all trades around the house. I have to do all the dropping stuff anyway in case you haven't heard i'm now single. Yesterday was my birthday amount. Forty eight years old was first birthday. I have spent as a single person. Since i was seventeen years old because i am a serial monogamist been basically one series relationship after another from about the time that i was seventeen up until just a few months ago and this last relationship lasted twenty two years fight. Anyway i'm gonna buy dunk anyway because the thing about it. Is we have a child in common. So now i have to be civil for the rest of our lives around with choice because i don't want any of even two stepchildren for either of us. Defeat the animosity. So i have to find a way to be nice to be honest. I don't think she deserves it. Some of the stories of don't but i have to figure out how to be the bigger person but anyway enough about that. 'cause lord knows there is enough stuff to talk about so anybody notice. There aren't any any cheerleading biden supporters anymore. He knows they kinda just dried up all over facebook and everywhere else. Nobody's gonna look at all the amazing he's doing because there's absolutely nothing they can point at. It's all terrible is much as in. I guess maybe it has to do with me. Maturing there was a time during the apartment ministration to be more precise that anytime anything blew up in the loves face. I was just like i was pulling nelson from the simpsons. I just. I can't. I can't do that anymore because it's just gone so bad it's it's everything is terrible. I mean i just saw a new story not just a few seconds ago. Come across twitter about joe biden helping to push for some pipeline to be open in russia. I haven't been able to source that yet. So i'm not going to say it's one hundred percent valid but let's just assume for the moment that it is why is he pushing bell open pipelines. In russia book closing blends in america. I thought donald trump was the russian asset are really confused. Then we've got him. You know basically bending over the table for china we get out of this stuff folks that just really don't and that's honestly been my biggest struggle with everything that's been going on in my own personal life like how with as much of my life has been in shambles. Can i talk to people about how i think we should be able to make the country better but then you know what the more i thought about it. The more i realized that my life isn't into shambles honestly. My life hasn't changed very much. My life is pretty much the same as it was through all of two thousand twenty beginning of twenty twenty one. The only difference is there is a person missing from it. Now who apparently didn't want to be part of it anymore. Everything else is basically the same as it was before i have the same job. I had the same family at this point. The the inlaws still talk to me all the time they come out on the weekends. I mean they're coming out again this weekend. My grandkids are here all the time. My life really for the most part is almost exactly the same as it was before. And what that tells me is since nothing has really changed for me other than there being a significant other absent from the equation. now is. I wasn't the problem now. Have you listened to her. I was the problem twenty four hours a day seven days a week. I was the problem but looking back now that i've had a few months to look at it everything that i was beating myself up over. There's nothing i could have done differently. So that's one of the things that i've been struggling with is finding a way to get my confidence back because everything. I believe in shaken core for several months and it was really hard to do this while. I'm fighting with feeling like i was a complete failure when it came to my marriage because i don't believe in divorce. This is now second one. I don't believe in divorce. But i didn't have a choice the first time. I didn't have a choice. Because if i didn't leave my first wife i was going to lose my kids so i took my kids in my and i left. I don't believe in divorce. I didn't choose this one. The second wife did in the second wife did things that i will not discuss publicly. That have made it possible for us to divorce even with my belief system so while i don't believe in divorce sometimes it is necessary. And this is one of those instances yet again now. I haven't decided or determined yet. If i plan on trying to do anything like this ever again and i've made a promise to my children that for at least the next twelve months while actually twelve months from january technically but probably closer to twelve months from now. Because is this the first time i've ever even really considered it. I probably won't get involved with anyone again for quite some time other than just as friends. Because that's honestly all. I have time for it now. I have grandkids over all the time. I have a grandkid. Who's with us fulltime. I have. I have radio stuff. I have my day job. I have trying to work on getting riding. Started again so. I just i don't. I don't need that in my life right now. At some point. I would like to have it again but at the same time. I don't wanna just you know. Bring somebody else into philip puzzle piece and be like oh look. I have a significant other again. It wind up being exactly what it was before. Because i i want to break the cycle. I've i've only ever been in serious relationships. I went from one serious relationship to another. My first girlfriend was in high school. She became my fiancee. She left me then. I met my first wife and we were dating for a couple of years. We got married. We were married for a few more years. Things went sideways and it was either risk losing my kids or leave so i left then i met my second wife and we were together for twenty two years all of a sudden. She decided she didn't want to be part of this life anymore. So things happened. But i guess the reason i'm saying this is a lot of you have wondered. Why haven't been doing radio. I have been doing podcasting. Why really haven't even been doing any political posting. It's because i didn't feel like i could first of all i couldn't keep up. Second of all honestly. I'm going to be honest. i'm to the point. Now where if it wasn't for the fact that i really feel like somebody has to say something about the craziness that we're going through right now. I'm ready to sit back and fiddle. Watch it burn. Because i've been warning against this stuff for a decade. Been telling everybody this stuff was coming for over a decade that we were. I mean it's kim some of the same stuff that glenn beck has been saying because we started saying these kind of things around the same time the difference is he already had a bigger platform than i did so his message got how i but i was still saying some of the same things. We are getting to the point where america is about to take a turn towards the dark side. And when we do we're gonna make nazi. Germany look like a of fucking girl scouts. And you're watching it happen right now in front of your eyes the beginning stages are already here and this is why i feel like. This is the time that i have to come back. And i have to say something because if somebody's got to say something. We are literally watching an entire country. Tear itself apart from the inside out and nobody is talking about it because they're afraid to you. Know what i don't care. The simple fact of the matter is there are people in our government right now that one us fighting with each other because as long as we're fighting with each other and distracted from the bullshit that they're pulling and the simple fact of the matter is they don't want us paying attention they want us fighting amongst ourselves and the problem is we are falling for every single time and you wanna know the real truth you wanna know how i know this is true because when donald trump was in office and the virus the wu. The one flew the kong flu. Whatever you wanna call it. I hit the scene. One of the first things that came out was there is no way this came out from a chinese market that it actually had to have come from a lab and it was. It was leaked from a labs. Now oh my god. You're just racist against the chinese and year conspiracy theorists the know what you're talking about new you just to lie your trump supporter in your your era trumper. And now here. We sit little over a year later and they're finally admitting the fact that they're fairly certain this was a man made virus released from the very same lab that we told everybody over a year ago on the confluence view. This thing was released from. This is what i am saying. Nobody's paying attention. Nobody cares because they're they're they're finally starting to tell the truth and nobody cares because it's too little too late. This is what they do. They get their message out as hard and as fast as they can and they beat you to death with it and then cup above fourteen fifteen months later they leak the truth out then as well. Everybody knows that's just a conspiracy theory. They've been telling us that for the last fifteen months. No they're finally telling you the truth but they know that because they've been telling you that it wasn't the truth the entire time that you're going to believe believe what they told you the first time. The simple fact of the matter is the. Us media's become propaganda period end of sentence. That's all they are. They don't tell you the truth anymore. They tell you what they think they're they're going to be able to use to get you to click more things into buying more things to get more articles and whatever it takes to get you to pay attention to them.

This show will now at least for the moment. Be live every tuesday wednesday night at pm eastern right here live on radio and again. We are america's podcast at work. Everybody's enjoying your wednesday night. We're halfway through the workweeks. I hope you guys are enjoying it. Hopefully you've got yourself a drink. Maybe a little something to help. You think whatever you might need and we got a little bit more stuff to talk about for the last little bit of the show. We've got about twenty minutes left before we're going to be wrapping things up so let's get back to it. I think you guys have heard enough of my pontificate about what's been going on in my life for the last few months and it's time to get to the actual show portion of the show. I know everyone is like really different. Forty minutes do Said oh an orion. I actually touched on this a little bit during the robinson and haughty show however this is actually just officially been put across the blaze. This actually wasn't at the top of the screen and lost my it so it must be fairly new. Facebook has facebook fact. Checkers and the facebook gestapo have decided to reverse course and now allowing users to claim cova was made as as a lab week at theory continues to gain ground. Facebook has decided that its users may now suggest that cova nineteen was man made without getting their post being than a reverse and it reversal from previous policies as the theory that the virus was cooked up a wuhan lab gains traction. So can we. Just i guess maybe i just need to start a new one of the show. Called trump was right. Maybe that would be something. We could probably start doing then again. It would probably use every minute of the show so anyway. The social media giant told politico wednesday that it would no longer take down posts claiming the coronavirus was manufactured in what the outlet reported was a move. That knowledge is the renewed debate about the viruses. Orange origins sorry orange. The outlet reported facebook announced in february that expanded the list of misleading. Health claims that it would remove from its platforms to include those asserting that covid nineteen is man-made or manufactured the tech giant has updated its policies against false and misleading corona virus information. Including it's running list of the bunk claims over the course of the pandemic income in consultation with global help health officials. The move draws further scrutiny. Over whether fact checking and post regulation from the social media giant has been political in nature ding ding ding ding ding. If you're just now starting to figure that out you really have not been paying attention but welcome to the party. So facebook has infamously flagged and even punished users for questioning covid nineteen related policies and rhetoric former president donald trump and others have long suggested code was leaked from china's wuhan institute of technology and idea that was dismissed several in mainstream media for months as a conspiracy theory a new york. Times reporter even tweeted wednesday. Someday we will stop talking about the lab leak theory and maybe even admit it's racist roots but alas that day is not yet here but after the wall street journal reported earlier this week that multiple workers the wuhan lab fell sick with symptoms related to covid nineteen in november of two thousand nineteen the mainstream media and others resistant to the lab. League idea started changing their tunes. Dr anthony fauci who previously dismissed theories that the virus came from a lab in wuhan. China did a complete reversal calling for an investigation into the origins of coverted. Admitting he is not convinced that the disease emerged naturally as he has long maintained. Foudy is lying hack who should be removed from office immediately anyway. Following reports that president joe biden administration. Shut down the state department. Probe launched by the trump administration aimed at finding out the source of the cove nineteen virus biden issued. A statement. no he didn't somebody else issued for him. Because dude was eating tapioca calling on the intelligence community to redouble their efforts to collect an analyze information that could bring us closer to definitive to a definitive conclusion between the two theories. Okay first of all who wrote that. It wasn't joe biden. Do seriously have you heard think you get spell. How this works between the two theories whether it emerged from human contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident. I'm not even gonna go a laboratory accident. I think they let it out on purpose. I'm gonna go back to something. Stacey and i talked about when this first started when we were all supposed to be stuck at home for only two weeks and that was it and we when my day job we started working from home so for two weeks to get my schedule the same. We came up with an idea of doing a temporary morning. Show called the confluence view. One of the reasons. Why i think and well i'm going to change at one of the reasons why i know this was an accidental. Because let's not forget when this first started hitting in china. They blocked everyone from wuhan province to travel anywhere inside china but they allowed them to leave the country that does not smack of accident that smacks of on purpose because they were letting something out of the country that they knew was bad enough that they weren't letting them anywhere else in the country. This is one of the first things that led me to believe that this was not an accident that it was not some sort of natural transmission are natural occurrence because why inhale if it was something that was accidental or even natural what they allow people that they knew had been exposed to it to leave the country but not go anywhere else inside of china. This is one of the things that i am in screaming for over a year because nobody wanted to talk about it and if you did. You were racist. Nancy pelosi was in the middle of chinatown screaming. Come hungry charter. Come hungry tournament today so we can prove to them. We're not racist while telling trump at the same time that he wasn't doing. Enough to combat the covert nineteen virus and obviously. I'm just sick of all of it. Cove nineteen isn't. I mean every viruses novel so this whole idea that this never ending thing was a constantly evolving. Never going to know what it's going to do. It's all just so dumb and the simple fact of the matter is now now that now that joe biden's in office because what they got out they got what they wanted out of it. They got joe biden in office. Now they're series. Go well maybe really do. Come from the lab in china a anyway so along with this story. this is again one. That was kind of touched on a little bit during the robinson and show. This happened today as well rand. Paul's amendment passed banning gain of function research in china cheers on a falls rang out in the senate chamber on tuesday. Evening after passage of an amendment offered by senator rand paul republican of kentucky which bans the use of taxpayer dollars to fund gain of function research and china. We may never know whether the pandemic arose from the lab and wuhan but we do know that so far no intermediate animal host has been discovered pulse at speech ahead of the vote. Thousands of animals at the wet market have been looked at. He continued none of them. Have carried cove. Nineteen we've tried to infect covid nineteen in a badge it doesn't go well it could because it doesn't grow in batch. It seemed suitable for humans. He reiterated we may not know whether this ever arose out of lab but i think gain of function research where we take a deadly virus sometimes much more deadly than covert and then we increase transmissibility to mammals is wrong in two thousand fourteen. The national institute of health stopped all of this research. The senator went on to say adding. I'm using the same definition to say any gain. Affliction research should not be funded in china with us tax payer. The measure that passed by voice vote prompting cheers and clapping from within the chamber in this most recent sparring match with dr anthony. Fauci few weeks ago. Paul a physician press ouchi over the nih funding viral research at the wuhan institute of allergy and the possibility that cova one thousand nine. A product of gain of function research leaked from the lab. Dr fauci do you still support funding of the age or are you still support the way that whoever wrote this needed needed an editor. Dr fauci do you still support. I'm going to read it as typed dr fauci. Do you still support funding the nih funding of the lab wuhan. I don't know if he said it that way. i hope. Not but anyway. Senator paul with all due respect. You're entirely entirely completely incorrect Replied the nhc not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in duluth on institute. Paul disputed claims a press release explaining his amendment in writing despite dr fauci denial. There's ample evidence that backing by the scientific community that the age and the anti under his direction funded gain of function research at the institute of technology. A multitude of scientists have reviewed this research and said it meets the definition for gain of function. Many of these scientists have also discussed the inherent dangers of conducting gain of function research and the risk it poses to the human population. So the good news is it did officially pass so it looks like we're going to stop hopefully funding crazy crap in china. Just all right so believe it or not. We are getting pretty close to the end of the show one other topic. I wanted to hit on here. Real quick Give me just a moment Cute back up here and this is actually from Glenn beck this this honestly. This is something that just a few months ago. I would've probably labeled as i personally. But i'm starting to see this happening. More and more the new war on terror. Innocent until proven conservative. The left is gearing up the label. Anyone and everyone who doesn't been the need to their radical ideas a threat to the nation and they're using the january sixth capital riot to do. So that's when innocent until proven conservative started in the democrats new nine eleven style january six commission will solidify since the capital riot the biden administration show little transparency while arresting and intimidating hundreds and insisting that right wing terror is on the rise but is there any evidence to back up what the government is now doing to its own citizens on this week's Gone tv special. Glenn beck asked the questions that the corporate media won't and lays out why this may only be the beginning as private companies. Prepare to help the government. Spy on you and senator rand. Paul joins to detail. How republicans in congress are standing against democrats new january six commission. And honestly if you would like Well actually for those via the chat. I'm gonna go and just drop this if you want to listen. Because i can't play the audio i figure out like i said i've got a setting the stole off somewhere. I think i know what it is. But i don't want to mess with it while i'm on the air cases. Screw something up. Here is the link. You can actually find the entire episode in the article. I do strongly recommend that you listen to it. I actually plan on cutting some audio from this. Probably when the does come back. Starting on tuesday because yeah it's it's pretty scary. We live in strange times. Ladies and gentlemen we used to be able to agree and agree to disagree and get on with our lives. We don't seem to be able to do that anymore. And i'm not sure. But i do know that it's one of the reasons why i'm glad that i live on an acreage. Because if things keep continuing to go the way they are now. I'm going to build a compound. I'm not even going to build a combat and i'm just done it just. It did very very very weird times Actually one of the thing because this seems like really weird climate change activists will sit on the board of oil industry giant exxon mobil a historic i after a hedge fund successful campaign to push the energy firm towards renewables. The new york times reported exxon's shareholders voted wednesday to elect at least two board candidates nominated by activists investors who pledged to steer the company towards cleaner energy and away from oil and gas a hedge fund dubbed engine number. One put forward a slate of independent board candidates and was successful in its campaign to switch out board members. Cnbc reported that engine number one has point are zero point zero to stake in exxon and has been targeting. The company since december over the oil giants need to shift away from fossil fuel dependency. Wait a zero zero point zero two percent stake and they've been able to push board members. Dude we need to start fundraising apparently. Because you don't have to own very much company out of impact changes. I guess just saying a so. The hill reported that the activist hedge fund. Which has a minor stake in excellent. Just fifty million was form last year. With the goal of shifting exxon's approach to climate change exxon has market value roughly two hundred and fifty billion dollars but engine number one was able to gain the support of exxon's top shareholders climate change initiative winning. The backing of three biggest. Us pension funds the two biggest advisory services and at least one of the three biggest funds managers. The washington post reported the l. That noted that these three fund managers are blackrock vanguard and state street who altogether hold more than twenty percent of exxon mobil shares. Exxon announced in infest released that preliminary vote estimates indicate that the shareholders elected number one nominee. Greg golf and hotel to the board. According to axios. I tell is a former renewables. Executive with the refining company. Neste in golf is the former. Ceo of refiner. And andy over. We welcome all of our new directors and look forward to working with them constructively and collectively on behalf of all shareholders exxon chairman and ceo. Darren would said in a statement. We've been actively engaging with shareholders and received positive feedback and support particularly from our announcements relating to low carbon solutions and progress to pardon me progress in efforts to reduce costs and improve earnings. He continued we heard from shareholders today about their desire to further these efforts and lear now well positioned to respond to anytime. I hear about these. Renewable folks getting added to boards for oil companies. I keep being reminded of the parable of the scorpion. And the frog nod nod gonna end well for somebody just not canadian well for somebody i just i do know all right well believe it or not folks that is just gonna do just going to just about do it for this particular episode of the america off the rails show again. I am rick robinson. Hope you guys have enjoyed the show. Don't forget we'll be back tomorrow night me and already for the return objects that position. We are actually going to redo the last mandela affect episode. That we did because all the technical issues it was just terrible so we're going to pretend it didn't happen. Make that and of a self manila effect and actually redo a much better version of the same episode preferably would know gremlins but on that note ladies and gentleman we are going to get out of here for the night and the words bilas preston esquire ted theodore. Logan be excellent each other in the words of me. Take care of yourselves and if you can just remember. I know things are crazy right now but if you need something to focus on do this take your time your talent your energy and whatever you have to make your corner of the world a better place focus on your family focus on your friends. Focus on new job whatever you need to do. Put your energy into something that gives you positive outcome and positive results because if you don't you're going to lose your mind the world is crazy right now. Nothing makes sense. Everything's been turned on. Its head evil is good. Right is wrong. Wrong is perfect. It's just the way it is right now but if you as an individual can focus on making your life better the world around you better if we can get everybody doing that eventually the world will be a better place if not at least you of a better for trying to make the world a better place but again in the words of bill esquire to the logan be excellent each other.

DM's throughout this break of people being like and did that play a factor in you wanting to then go all right it's time for the tour you seem very calculated people that are like part of an orbit or cycle the rest of us most of us don't have that you've gotta rearing your spot you one or two times and then like at a club and then having seen on tour and then see what on tour that I hadn't seen you workout so how are you then do so why don't you sit down dinner and you could have done a big tour every year with right yeah but when you do that what your there's a very very small window of opportunity hours of material to lay down for this next special that you've been curated over these last five years and more so someone's I've seen you do bits and the one and only Dan Cook will the weekend Tan sometime back like these guys have a character and part of that character is sometimes influenced by their fans reclaim your position and the way you're going to do that is by entering new territory and bringing something new to the table and Performance d did you get or do you get when you're doing spots and layabout like building the material and I've you know now I've seen I've seen there's you know every shows different you're mixing and matching you've probably and that's the only equation that you should be thinking about not to say that some nights you are not going to still feel competitive or what those things there's a healthy element to that Adam honestly it it finally just Kinda all all that goes away the only thing that remains is like hey I got a fan base that really wants new stuff to laugh at being being a guy and you know the Alpha that's in us and you know He talks a lot of Shit Online Ron White about me so it was also like extra he had ah those those you start I think you start to learn in in in business especially you know if you're if you're moviemaking in your in your directing you want to make a great sequel well don't Rehash you WanNa do something that takes those characters to a place that the audience didn't expect you start to talk about something else it's not like it was when you're coming up in maybe like for me fifteen years ago where you're just trying to kill and be the best in the room that Oh winning respect from your peers so I if I'm in a room and I notice comics I love that are there right I might abandoned more of the newer stuff I was GonNa do that night and they're on an emotional journey I think a comedy is the same way as great films I think it is as great music you know Bruce Springsteen's I try to bring us more free merge so emails again about last night pottage email dot com your favorite apps how you got into the pod where you listen to it while you love it and we might pick your email to win some free merger early right yeah yeah I mean I all that stuff is like I'm more so much more zen about all that too many people come to me over the years who tried to trying to write new material and just find like I don't know if you have a theme for the right can I answer something really quickly we glossed over the same thing to me too and then you meet him he's the nicest Guy Joking Oh wow you really did that to me Oh really oh yeah he talked a lot of smack and then when I met him can stand behind Oh yeah of course their fans are gonna like and stand behind who run whiteness so I didn't take it so personal and then meet him and he's lovely and they meet his girlfriend where do these gigs here and there I'm going to do a couple of tours that are underground like the year before this tour I did a full tour of like that's when I knew okay you know what I know the corner that I wanNA turn at this point but I'm not putting the mic down I'm just GONNA stay in La Fifty dates and I never advertised I don't think one of them I just kind of floated into town and I would do these gigs I had never done before as a way to just girl in the room and make everybody else feel like I didn't kill his heart as that's that's you know I'm still doing that on certain levels sure a lot of it too is also ECZEMA element yeah but that's point that will that's understandable and I and I think to again to some extent there's always gonna be that feeling I think that's also just a new I've tried to put something new into who I am year after year I try to bring something that maybe I've been afraid to tap into year after year the road that I've worked in La for a couple years since troublemaker so it was poignant and it was kind of my own master plan to go. I'm going to take because I want to you know this is the first time they're seeing me right now with Ron White and it's not like I am ever going to become best friends with them but I just I was like I want him to in in in without answering it very directly I think there's something even greater than that that's on its way while I can because I've been watching it night in and night out and it would be a fucking shame if you weren't in some way preparing to lay down what you're doing said here's some issues salad what did he say he said he's EA say something I don't remember I just remember that it was like unnecessary but I started to learn workout workout without even like having anything expected of me did you feel there was an important to get out of La to do that why did you or just wanted to take all the twenty so everything now is leading up to what I think is going to be a very dynamic and special year I don't want to give everything away right now but of course people are going okay as a special on its way growing and evolving and and being consistent with you know what the art form requires like you should be getting better but also I feel like what this one tibial wise and just where I was at my life and there was a break for that one right like three or four year well I was working troublemaker leading up to that and I was extra-special the materials all still like vintage you like what your fans love about you and you know just energy a years I'm going to really build this out to two plus our material that I'm GonNa do the name Tour and then Twenty twenty I knew I'm going to be hitting thirty years in two thousand hiring I was on there was one tour that was before that was all across Canada and then did troublemaker and then from troublemaker yep I like being concise about this I never stopped doing comedy over the last say people like to say five years but I'm GonNa laid out really quickly for years something or smashed me or bash me and then they come to me and they go dude I was dealing with my own Shit I was Gel is yeah or I I was being questioned about why I wasn't doing what you're doing troublemaker hit a super proud of it I directed it I produced it I financed it I sold it okay one of my favorites too just aesthetically and then right more introspective with all those other things the the lose any funny by getting more introspective no no if anything what you start to learn is and across the country right now and to speak on how I thought troublemaker was one of your best and it should only be that way too if you're leanest and fun and stuff that makes you think and great funny at doubts all the stuff that I feel like the got me into you right and but but you know what you've taught night yeah that goes away after a certain amount of time and you realize that goes away but the best yeah not about just like hey I'm going to be the best so I can get the hottest oh wow by being even more transparent and vulnerable with the things that have happened to me both in success and failure it just makes me have a deeper hours that I'm like I would think to myself I was like man why is he why is he laying that down right why finished it because I knew that it was kind of like all right put that one into lock box and let me connection you know people write me every night I read the DMZ every single night is I have for my whole career whether it was my spacer whatever the current will read them and it's still important to me because what happens now is I get people saying this is the tenth time I've seen you over twenty years and this is my favorite show about all the podcasts in the last year and even just as you mentioned too about getting more zen like there's all that that bleeds into who you are onstage doing these shows now reeboks to try to give me the life that to where we could stay in that home town so I could take theater at Arlington High School and get brave trying and telling yourself you suck you should quit you know people love to hear that because it makes them go oh we're not as different as I thought the -Chusetts I'm a kid from food stamps and free lunch tickets and humiliation in a mom that had rheumatoid arthritis and was fucking vacuuming people's houses for all that was given to me by a mom who had her own phobias and anxieties in so now what you're seeing is complete person that can share all of those things and let you know or let the audience know I'm I'm I'm fortunate but the hard work got me here in a little bit of Lady Luck but it's that thing roll up your sleeves and fucking digging in and going I'm not taking no for an answer back in fact I'm making no my my fuel that right there is as long as it's not only you yeah you know and there's the stage and go I I did that entirely as fuck you to somebody sitting in the back of the Roy Moore Oh because I deal with anxiety or I had a weird situation with a stocker or while when you share that story about failing on stage and cry forget that so quickly when they see someone who's had success like you have which is not a lot in our if you would so that was for me the the most the most unexpected factor of well you know I don't forget that this is not lost on me that this is all pretty cool and let you know like didn't just get this handed to me definitely but it can be but because you also don't parade around the facts of like you know to post a picture of a of an old movie poster and put Hashtag food stamps cut you know what I'm saying right which by the way the wouldn't be something totally entirely wrong about that too kind also let people know like hey just it's definitely that as well in in this business everybody wants those few spots of like who's on the cover of the magazine who's who's popular now let's not be let's be blunt going for those things and making those things come to fruition is a it's an undertaking because this whole industry in and of going for your goals there's more obstacles and there's more people that are trying to run and gun and pull something hip or whatever it might be people know that by the way that you responded that you are famous for that to every mice based like and whatever I still do and this is yeah our currencies and profound thoughts people do dirty known I was GonNa do standup I held your mom when like eighth or ninth grade I was like I'm going to graduate I didn't like school I like journalism probably written by somebody who's whimsical and maybe hasn't fully enveloped themselves in what it means to go for your dreams and goals let's but in journalism creative writing drama I I was fascinated because I was surrounded by people that were very confident and I still didn't have that so I had to put it on the work but but another thing we're not even talking about it's not only did it not can hand it to me in life it's more about people trying to take it away from you and that's the reality the harsh realities that nobody tells you that that most played out like just go for it and when you get it enjoy a baby right that's that's there has to be somebody outside of that that is unbiased that gets to know you early on like you know from a class you know a teacher or and a friend's parent somebody that just isn't that has to get to know you kind of quickly through through contained environment and this was your drama teacher yes act three to keep that in your circle you've told me about your acting teacher and I don't think we've talked about him on the podcast but I waited like tell me what you've told me core of who he was was a guy that wanted to find his own success it outside of being a drama teacher any lack certain fundamentals in the biggest thing lacked was confidence and so when I met Frank Day one day one of drama and we had to do this thing in front of the class where from you then there is people trying to impart something or truly invest something in you that's hard to find when you do find it you're GonNa work that I saw on TV in the or in vicious circle and he started just like I did I did I'm a I'm a welfare kid from outside of Boston mass join those classes and I said I would finish high school because I knew that I was getting something from those things what I didn't know as I was going to meet somebody Frank Roberts creative writing and melodrama everything else I was not how would you get through the classes daydreaming I always be having the last name Cook I was in the first aisle the ABC and I I I was always next to the window I probably stared out win more windows than at teachers or chalkboards four but now for the audience about because I think it's again you talk about your mom and your champions being supportive and your and your sisters but like it's more about people trying to take it from you and I don't mean that I don't mean that like always like in a physical sense I mean that it's a dog eat dog world man special China's you're like I can't even buy what this person who probably had more wonder than experience we introduced ourselves and be kind of like a little skit that he prepared he told us we're going to go up take a half hour think about what you WanNa do and I put this whole thing together a presents it does it does help to know that going in right frank you know had come in to teach drama in at the at the back then did did he kind of Exude that quality right out out of the gate like first conversation did he. I think you can look at it as a stand up comics like you're one of seven that's sold at Madison Square Garden you know and we've talked about it on previous pods but just like everything your child with you for a minute sat down me and he said you know I see a lot of fear in you but I also saw something happened from the kid sitting here to who stepped on the stage I saw not like this outside of my own family saying you know you're you're good yeah you're also not privy to a molesters opening monologue so I'd never met a molester at that point so I didn't and you took drama always knowing you wanted to do it yeah right I thought that by taking some drama classes in high school it would break her stand up yeah because I added around a little bit by this guy I don't know what I've never had anybody say I see something in you sounded like magic spells I didn't know anything yeah Asian for myself first time actually being on stage in front of other kids like fifteen kids in the class and he came to me the only kid he came to after class and he said published continuing to do people look at someone like you and they just go of course like looking at him crush lookout charismatic cal look as good movies like of course it's which and I saw something that I rarely say now keep in mind I'm sitting there going is this guy setting me up to molest me am I being groomed to get my shit back hire to that he had done theater and off Broadway and had a pretty good career for himself which by the way that helps because there are some times I remember funny out of drama teacher at an eighth grade that last hard good darn right and what's the best way that we can pod good put Koi CBD Enya Body so great I'm so glad that these guys jumped on as the sponsors cbd oil is me something he said to you that he is usually was just real perceptive and I think that's c did the job of a charity thirty years teaching at Arlington High School my mentor in in in in you know as the years followed who would teach me more about life right now than even what I needed to know but lance there was not even really any kind of preamble or chat think Melissa's are big on preamble these days frank Frank right away wild make data fucking t shirt yeah sometimes I pull into a gas station and those safe premium unleaded I'll say do you have any no nick did one production vagina monologues and now I'm qualified with sock puppet wasn't he and it was like look more like a penis the public did I didn't go after him I met many molester since they were much more brash usually they just went right for the your lacking and he took an interest in me and pretty much right after that he started kind of trusting me he recognized something in me that he had told me right in that conversation he said I li- I lacked a lot of these things that I see that right away who recognize how important is to have somebody like that go out of their way to to recognize something in somebody that you know maybe you did have moments of of feeling like that might be something that you could do but like until somebody like that they're really looks you in the eye performance in the class of small scene came up put his hand on my shoulder Senate very proud of you you did a great job today never heard that from anybody a man Self esteem issues I cried because I felt like a little love for myself and it was I needed more that I get some goosebumps real be honest with yourself stuff that goes into great performance now he was talking to me about when I was seventeen looking back in hindsight and that was the first board of a platform of a foundation that would be the rest of my life was laying that down who's really wonderful to the getting up a little bit emotional Miss Frankie he he passed away a couple years after my parents but the thing that happened was he said after my first he told you something that no I'm putting myself back there right now and like I was being enveloped by some thoughts that were maybe not a person who wasn't important in the world and maybe didn't have a place and I I cried not for the first time not an anxiety or scared of the world cry which I had done quite a bit as a kid dealing with in I didn't hear that from my dad until I was maybe around twenty six or twenty seven that we could have a conversation that he really understood that I was finding success I gave a lot to me that day and then many many days after that years after I didn't know I mean you spoken own right here to be honest Adam I think it was the day that probably changed I think I was wondering dark path in my life and I think I was it a big switch like do you remember like how you were off stage two when you got on like could you feel it so when he called it out you're like yeah I do feel nothing my dad at that point it even understood what it was to be proud of me and say that away getting a little emotional right now and I went home and I cried I I went home there's no place I forgot because he interrupted so anyway next question you said he was going to is and makes it an unknown thing and and is I mean like you said I I didn't know that that you hadn't even heard that from your pops really yeah cried because you was finding himself love yes I didn't feel I was I was of no value and treat me with that kind of professional professional respect T- treated me like a like a gift man I I love Frank Roberts he would be upset if I was calling him Frank Roberts used to always insists call me frank I'm your friend I'm not your teacher anymore but he's my teacher and he is my friend this is not very fair to me in not very caring or or in any way kind of inclusive the way I saw other kids in groups and so things over the years through self exploration that I think that's what actually is the secret sauce of making you relatable in something that and you know about how he didn't like school and being an introvert right to how so I think that's really huge for you to say and for people that the people look up to it gives you the sparkle that you need because ultimately we all want to feel valued today's episode of the about last night podcast is brought to you by in life and that was wonderful it was an amazing day as well but prior to that I didn't have a have a man who could be sensitive go for it I rolled with it too so rows like an harmonize with

funny man yeah but I think it's just owning the whole journey a translate that whether it's a feeling or whether it's or even just like being forty-seven and knowing like hey I'm growing older I talk about it and overwhelming kind of to think about it so second nature to you and you're just like yeah what's the alternative and here's why it's not overwhelming to me when I came up in Boston some of them look like they were fucking seventy already when I started but they were just like imbibing and a lot of you know offstage activities maybe weren't like and being able to observe and report I I've been saying that a lot lately but that's our that's our goal right as comics as we change not trying to hold onto something we were or Milton Berle's did you watch Louis I was always watching all kinds of comics just contemporaries in realizing you know whether I was watching guys like newhart or whether I was watching you know seeing like a Joan rivers or to thirty years in it this to everything you've done and to still be performing at this level I truly don't it's it's like do like once he won I think recognizes something especially that you you know then they at least start to discover do dig this and like you said like love act like I'm changing you know being self effacing self deprecating taking the piss out of yourself I couldn't do that when I was twenty eight and fishing yourself yeah literally for me it was like okay when I'm in ninth grade watching Carlin to when I graduated it was like did he go from fifty five till like seventy eight yeah what happened rinse and repeat what you really notice in Carlin probably more than anybody I watched this guy age as I was getting older he seemed to age earning always be showing the best of what you are coupled with something that you just discovered a new a new trick with an old trick airing yourself to other let me know harping on this too much or talking about but like when you feel like this and you know were you comparing obviously this'll be now when you another one downbeat special number six I don't know if you have a bunch yeah does does your M- actually faster this thing goes till you're fucking ninety this isn't just about the special that you do now in making that like live on forever how can I this is you know you've you've earned that and it's you it's also a quick retrospective for the audience a majority Sir Yeah but the truth is I'm at the best place in my game ever I I know I know where I stand outside of what any but I loved him and I loved that I was watching him go through cantankerous and then being you know even sillier some names being even more vulgar seasoned but somebody brand new dude if you can get to that place that's where I'm at Man I'm not GonNa Bullshit I owned a water by this because and get easier because you're if you're doing it right you're like putting something else in front of yourself that's going to be like Okay how do I you've been having amazing sets I worked with the number of years in like high pressure situations you deliver thanks man you deliver you leave him in a place that's like okay nobody list tells me underneath list need an award Oh yeah I basically haven't gotten those things and I like that because I like not being the healthiest yeah those guys wouldn't have been podcasting back in eighty seven am but for me I always came up looking at guys like I'm trying to think like behind myself I'm in the moment in that moment you know what I'm saying I'm like what having you showed him what what are you not completing that you're gonNA try tonight in dirty and outside the box even sillier and then being older and being bit more cynical sometimes just being like you know off the what I'm hearing those ingredients and I'm going I'm hearing it and I'm ready to walk out on stage but I'm pretty lucid now I'm not like ahead of myself a lot of the guys that were ahead of me that were crushing like still stay the some of the best of the best performance wise they're older guys if you could be doing that during an hour and a half performance what they're what they're getting from you what the tingle they're getting is seeing somebody so fucking gene trail of traditional comedy I thought Carlin was doing things that were just like rhyming words in just stuff that was maybe just interesting to him that he was watching kilter or clothing the Times change I I I've never looked at any performance that I've put out there in the world without it in gear for but you always give me an intro that's like you know you come up and you you go through the list stuff yeah and I was telling you there I think it was ice isolated incident was all improvised no a lot of rough around the edges that's right yeah it was like a fifty fifty split myself and I think in these podcasts I've probably danced around it sometimes because if you don't ask me a direct question I'm not going to always give you like the fully expected of like even in the credits you always give me such a great intro your intro is first of all you kill let me just fucking say it like it is right here I don't WanNa sleep on that facts is I tell us the people all the time when they're like dude what's it like like how can we the show I'm like dude it's crazy to me to those specials that pops up your I like memory of it whether it's the whole overall making of like you know I know that you said the amount of people that have been like these bans we got these flavors in these you know it's funny you can put me strawberry rupiah footsie shut up man in on any given night even though yes some of it is set material and we know we gotta get from ABC Yeah and and that's to be expected people are paying a hard earned dollar

132. The Slate House - WNBA Wednesdays

"I welcome to gen z hoops basketball coaching in sports business. Show on this podcast. You'll learn from professional players coaches and executives from all over the world and see the court and a brand new way and now joining you courtside your gen z host. John phyllis it is. What's going on. I you great really excited to have you back on again for the part to the long awaited pie to first episode of wb wednesdays. Really get to kind of showcase all the great things happening in women's sports. And when i thought of like who is this i guess. Wait darla. it's pretty. It's a pretty obvious answer. I love j. slate again. So they use what you coming on the show. A lot of one awesome. yeah. I'm really glad to back. And of course always talk about the wnba. So freakin can be good a started with. Maybe what being a woman sports means to you. Both maybe in your field specifically i think to me it really just confirms that in any industry you can always find space for yourself whether you're female whether You know whatever your circumstances are. I think you can find space for yourself somewhere. If that's what you want you want it bad enough. I don't think it's always going to be easy but to me. It really means a lot to me. That i was able to carve out my own identity in. Sports is really starting to make an impact so early on in so many different areas of sports. That is really probably the main thing that i must product. It's huge. I remember the last time he came on the show. We're talking a lot about maybe some of the experiences you've had in the industry We kind of may be centered. It all around forty to have all that stuff. Maybe that kind of been grounded around the women's game. And how much have you seen that evolve. Yeah i mean. I think one of my big first opportunities was an intern for the texas women's basketball team and they gave me my first opportunity to see how high level sports working in be behind the scenes. All the different moving pieces than that. You know it's not as simple as it looks are. There is a lot going on in truly understand the structure of of being a team. Outside of you know being on the athlete side. And so. I think because of the i really wanted to quickly and with such a good example of women sports that i'm this was something i wanted to continue to do. I wanted to be a part of that culture so important and many companies. What are the biggest things you do. We wanna hear about right now. You're kind of getting to that entrepreneurs based what can you been like explain. What the late houses. Yeah so i won't lie to you. I definitely didn't have the business savvy. Mind going into a don't know much about business but again reached out found the context and the network that we piece that together started this late house to do like digital media brand management for athletes for teams events. Just kind of on a concierge basis so trying to be as helpful authentic for you know. Whoever i'm working with. Give them the opportunity to really showcase their stories or their ideas on whatever it may be in the most genuine way possible so that it really reflects to them and not. Just you know another cookie-cutter idea that you know we're just pushing out. Make sure that it reflects them in that. They're really happy with it. First and foremost. It's so huge. It makes little happens. I'm curious maybe in what kind of obstacles you face by building your own brand in that sense. I'm sure right. it wasn't easy to you. Wake up one morning and say hamed started the company where they must so much up to that. Honestly there's a lot less leading up to it than i think i should have done. i just kind of got around like i know what i bring to the table in my skills. I know that you know. I have some somewhat of a network in a reputation for being and being in sports that you can kind of rely on. But it's definitely not the backbone of it. I think it's gonna be something. I'm going to have to continue to work on but for me. It was about like getting the foundation of the business setup so that all of my eyes are got mike shuster across so that when i do go in to work with people all of that stuff is taken care of the invoicing and all that stuff is real easy and then i just really knew that what i wanted to do was going to really rely on like how i like to help people. In my approach to being really athlete forward or team or whatever that may be an keeping not at the forefront night if at all Fell together after that. But you know it hasn't been that long there's going to be a lot of know roads ahead where have to keep pushing through finding more clients annan. The other big thing is it's not really like something that exists so there's definitely like marketing agencies. There's creatives that you can hire for videography for graphics and stuff. And i'm kind of covering all of that as well. As outsourcing when necessary. I don't claim to be able to do everything so you know building that that rolodex of really good photographers and videographers. That i can set up for for workout photo shoots and stuff like that from projects but you know really trying to get. All of that organized has been you know something work on. Its well outsourcing. Delegating does is super important skills slowing shuttle because you have so many skills in this industry right our listeners. If you haven't listened to part one yet go back because obviously the breakdown but can you kind of give us a little bit of a recap of what because there's so many of them in. There's so many different roles cleaning up to where you are now on. What was some of those skills you picked up. That have been out. Imagine invaluable to ya. I mean also went to school for journalism so the general writing pr Stuff media training is there. Then i'm done play by play videography for news. Sports done graphic designs or she media management. What else. I don't even know i think at some plan promptly touched everything. A little bit sideline reporting. And so i think one those give me really good perspectives on how to work with other people you know what type of things. I can ask photographers. So that i'm not asking them for too much or or things that aren't possible. And also like deadlines not like ask for video to be edited within like two hours like there's realistic expectations. Because i've been in that position. And i know edit videos. So i think that's kind of the biggest advantage skills is not necessarily knowing how to do all of them but it helped me a better player so we point to have that background. I'm i'm just curious because being women's sports there's unfortunately all those trolls on the that are that are gonna try to trolling and and try to make themselves known behind a computer screen and saying well. Maybe you don't know what you're talking about. I don't have those skills. I'm deal with that every single day. What are some of the ways you combat an and your experiences in unfortunately having to do so. Yeah i mean that's one of those things that unfortunately you just get used tuning grow. Some thick skin know you deal with since middle school high school as soon as you're interested in or somebody sitting there and saying like well. He's the fourth street quarterback this d three school in the middle of nowhere in. I mean they don't even know the answer to that so kind of about it. Sometimes it's just people trying to prove a point that doesn't mean any answer. The other thing is there are so many women in sport surrounding yourself with early myself with other strong women and you know you have people to fall back on and you know. Sometimes it's kinda complain and get out of your system but you really realize that you are on the better side of the the situation in that. You're really fortunate to working in sports. And if that is one of the downfalls for right now it's worth it in the long run because again we have such a cool industry in and cool job enroll in everything so the comments you know you just get used to ignore them. Sometimes i'll respond with some witty stuff. But i got to be a little bit careful because the all jump on the bandwagon. But it's fine in the other thing is i just know when i'm around other people with really high sports. Iq's that you know. They agree with me or we can have really high level conversations and that can help validate least internally that. I'm like no. I do so. I don't really have to listen to the trolls. 'cause i'm confident in that. I know what i'm doing and my iq of sports when responding definitely slippery slope because you know all these players like the ones you guys were talking about you. You have to see them again. You talked to me at all. These trolls are never gonna see them again. I've probably been a handful of games. Maybe tops right. They've and they've only the game through what they hear maybe on tv. or what. May they see on twitter so definitely a much different viewpoint of whitlow away watching it and it's laughable right that someone would even take that stance. Yeah now and that's that's the thing. Is you have it with a grain of salt. Sometimes you have to remember that you know they're never gonna be in the position to to meet their favorite player stuff like that that can make people salty so it is what it is so of course talking about maybe just social media maybe all negatives maybe come along with with with all the positive organ be some negatives like the trolls like the haters. But of course. There's also a lot of fakes going on there whether it's followers whether it was just with the thought just with the perspective of social media. How do you combat. Because i'm sure you see it everywhere bridge in your line of work on making sure to get through it. Yeah i think a huge part of key success in a brand or even just an individual is authenticity is why it's so important to me. And so i think obviously not everyone is gonna share every little aspect of their life for a completely open book but i think the parts that you do share being genuine about it being authentic as either you know it could be a team. It can be player A business really anything I think really just helps connect fans that much closer in you know. Bring them closer through that screen so that it's not just you know a bunch of calculated marketing having a lot of organic in genuine content. I think really not only makes social be a better place to be. You know as a fan or just a follower but i think also helps with brands and and being open and and pure about what they're posting i think is just it's good for everyone but the biggest thing that i know. I know this lady was doing a lot of that so definitely going to be keeping up with that an watching all this stuff. That's going on there but there's so many other women have to go to the stuff but that also in the same position as you right doing all these cool things. Last time we spoke a lot about maybe your mentors in people may reason for z. Lived up to. But i keep on posting with all your friends right also in mid twenties doing all these cool things like. Who are you kind of. Have this this kind of dream team of whatever might be. Who are these people. What do they do like. How do you guys all work together to kind of advanced dream and which guys are all doing well. Yeah i i actually. There's a ton of people that i look up to you of course but the huge part of this industry is constantly changing so it's surrounding yourself with people at the same level or you know coming into it at the same point and so for me. I have a bunch of friends that a couple of work in branding and management more specifically was like getting sponsorships and getting endorsements in brand deals like that work with both athletes in like entertainment influencers Projects like those. And that's really cool because you get to see kind of the behind the scenes of like. Oh it's not just you know a player wearing a specific tech fleece today. That was all arranged in. There was a lot of work that went into it and stuff. That's not really stuff that i typically touch on two months. It's exciting to see them. Do a lot of my friends are also offer. So they're out at the practices or games courtside getting all these great photos of cool to watch their their styles. Change or if switchover sports getting your read. I'm video content those different things. It's really cool because it's also one motivational because all these roles require a lot of hustle. But then it's also inspirational because it kind of influences your creativity and you're like oh this. Is this really cool project. I'm gonna go you know. Put my heart into this project in show creativity too so i think definitely surround myself with not only good. Mentorship peers has been really crucial in just navigating through sports. So huge in maybe light him path up in in kind of doing it all it just hand in hand and building each other up a bright instead of abc and has a competition any right where you guys are all doing this together. Rake as as a team which is which is great pivoting over todd. Maybe because of this. Wma may wednesdays thinking about maybe the liam whether league is going obviously maybe working the league for the last few years in several different roles are urging or just the opposite from the outside looking in a woody kind of see this league on twenty fifth season. Everyone's talking about it years obviously a big year for the league in on. What do you see things going. Yeah i think. I mean you can only go up really and i think it's constantly growing. They're doing huge things partnerships. With like nike and wilson. And trying to get a lot of you know more exposure on the league. There's i think twice now just a significantly. Larger number of nationally broadcast games is upcoming season. Schedules are competitive. They there's a lot of big stars in the league and then they're doing a good job of maintaining that momentum in the off season so these players go overseas in play throughout europe and in different places and Showcasing that film and those players getting championship. So i think really just maintaining this momentum and i think anyone that might not watch the wnba limits basketball. You know if you just sit down and watch a game you might actually really. You'd be surprised like how easy it is to get into it. Because i didn't play basketball so i was really just a fan going into it and wounds just has the fundamentals has speed like. There's just so much going on that your after looking for like post rising dunks. You might be a little disappointed but like that's really not even happening every single play in the nba. Either so i think if you go into it with you know the expectations of your watching almost a different sport. Because they who totally different. It's just so cool to watch that you know that will really help grow the sport and continue to get girls in the sport as well because i feel like a lot of fans come from people that just touched fastball some point in life bourbon interesting point because it's that's probably the biggest thing whether it's in the comments are just age people talk about the wnba in terms of why they don't watch would be. They can't they can't do this. They can't do that and it's all these negativity that surrounds it boosts your response to that when when someone asks you interest them and saying well visit if you look at it from this perspective. It's a great age. I mean like if you go into anything you're constantly comparing it. You're going to be disappointed. So you know you don't go into soccer and you're like why are they not having the crossbar every single time or baseball. Why isn't every play a home. Run like yeah. It's going to be disappointing. The games are gonna feel slow like you're not gonna like it but if you go into new just like have a fresh mind near not going in with a lot of judgement and start to look sport for what it authentically is. You'll have your own appreciation for women's clubs different play different styles different and it's not better or worse it's just you know you cannot sit here and compare it to the nba or to college. Men's basketball or your pick-up league at la fitness. it's not is not gonna be the same and their talent is so high that you know you will be amazed. Just how phenomenal these women are. Playing basketball is definitely just all takes having an open mind and looking at it through a non-biased perspective and say you know what. Let me let me. Just see what this is all about. Trust me if you watch five minutes you'll you'll you'll get a much greater appreciation. You just won't give it a shot at one thing that you mentioned all the punch going to be. I didn't think of all the new nike jerseys and they've kind of dominated twitter for a few days which one's your favorite biased so i define like the connecticut sun. There's just tell early. Get story in their involvement with the some tribe. All of the very small details that went into it. Not like a single aspect was over. Lucked i'm they even have one of the jerseys is like in the the native like language says stuff that lake represents mohegan sun. So i think that's really cool. I thought the indiana fever get a really cool job. There's really incorporated more pop culture and brought in some of the stranger things aspects in play off of that. So i think just. In general though the whole release the coordination that went with nike in the wnba. All the teams was really well done. And i think continuing to do stuff at such a high quality like that will only help guerrilla game even more because you know you might not be a fan of basketball at all but people like cooling stuff and exciting. You know stories. I think continuing to like really put a lot of effort into that. Going to be super good for the game or you as long as much like this Keeping watching air. but jason. Thank you so much for coming on the show. This was obviously a great one communist party forever. We finally got dotted. I'm so excited about it. Came out so it's just so great in this in this combo about women's hoops. You're doing really a bunch of great stuff. So thanks for coming on and kevin talk against him.

So each Friday normally we have a single conversation but I'm doing a little bit differently here on this particular Friday. One take you on a trip I like to go on every single year but physically I didn't go on this year and that is a trip to the big, east? Media Day. Man something I have covered. For well over a decade always excited about the opportunity to talk to players coaches to hear about what's going on in what? For my money is the best best ball confidence in the world. and. It got taken into a two part thing this year all on zoom of course, the safety of all involved men's vegetable yesterday women's basketball today I I grew up conference I grew up with this conference mattering like very few things matter in sports and both Jay Wright who knows the conference while the men's basketball coach at Villanova Gino Auriemma we get from a little later on in program talked about why it meant the beast. In a college sports landscape that prizes football overall made the choice to put basketball I. And you feel you feel it in the way they care about the sport in the way the League operates and in the way basketball is. The to remarkable thing to experience and. I look forward to I. Hope next year this time being back in Madison Square Garden Schwartz held every year. Talking to people about basketball thinking about the that are different than how we're going to manage to see even. The Dame's most of the games that were hoping to schedule. End Up in played. Amid the dangerous for all. So we're gonNA take you through. My trip today my trip. To the Buddhist. Too, busy Swede Asia a year from. And it's really important that you know with his val. Ackerman. The, Commissioner of the British conference somebody who is seen the video through into a really vital television partnership with Fox sports that give it a lifeline when people were wondering whether the Big East would survive is vegetable I conference. And just turned it into a place that was so attractive that Connecticut rhetoric. and. That was no small thing. For Connecticut's come back to the beach despite being a division one football program despite having put a lot of money into football required Yukon to say yes. Basketball is going to be first priority for US and more importantly. The beast is good enough at it. To justify that type of faith. And that's what they've done and that's what the Big East is done undeveloped. New. Year from her we didn't hear a little bit from amber cops who you might know from the eleven other jobs she also. Including her work is an executive with the Connecticut Sun. Cox. Is welcoming the women's Tornado back to Mohegan Sun. So I I asked amber about what that meant to have the. Genetic its own. Playing there in the summer. You have. Tournaments going on there in the fall and come the spring. dwelling. You didn't have the beauty shop in store nement. Back where it belongs. Here in the east. Then, we're also going to hear from January Emma. which, really interested into save I specifically asked him about page backers. Who I spoke to today I've spoken about age on the photo before and it will again because. Page. bekker's is it remarkable towns? Page backers seasons on the court. At professional players don't see. She saw him her sophomore year ice school. So. Gino talks about differently than other freshmen. and. Page. Dustin. Other freshmen built. Bottom line. Is asking what constitutes success for page was foremost on my mind because the bar is different. Than just is. So I asked that question last year question as well. So take your journey with me. Picture if can walk through the main entrance at the garden with their security. And she those escalators. Into, the world's famous most famous arena. I've been so many times. Place that. Is On my shortlist for where I'm excited to go again. This is all over. Not. Sure. Together let's chalk to the. People. Responsible Player coach executive. For the Best Basketball Conference in the world. Conference that I absolutely adore. Come with me video conference. Media Day. Where we go. From how am I GONNA I however, Mandela's bell. Show showers you both thanks for doing this as a bigger picture question one reach us if you'll indulge me. Now when when you think about this season with so many of the unknowns you've obviously put together scenario planning that involves a lot of different models. As you said, I'm wondering what you define as success for the biggies, this season and a cell phone number after. Thanks Howard For me sure. Speak for my office politics here successes ending season. With a big east tournament at. Madison. Square. Garden. a big east tournament at Mohegan Sun. Arena in NCAA tournament whenever that is played. that was that was a crushing blow. For All of us in college basketball issue that we weren't able to end the season we were grateful that we were able to fluid are women's basketball. conference. In Chicago but has everybody on knows well, by now our efforts for cut shortage guard, and of course, March madness was lost. So Our hope is that the season ends on a high. I you know I think everyone's expectation is that there may be an end perhaps will be disruption during the year. in that games however thoughtfully laid out. A wind up getting postponed best case worst case cancelled. And we're just going to try to do our best to kind of go through that. All the while making sure that whatever it is doing is safe is that says I noted earlier, the paramount concern is. The health safety of our student athletes and our coaches all. All of their staff. so we can get through. The next couple of months without light at the end of the tunnel knowing we can conclude. And have the season end with a champion crowned for us. Both events women's side in that have the opportunity for our best teams to move forward to a national basketball. Championship played in its entirety. I guy would sort of call that a successful effort in a very, very challenging year. Probably for universal and amber the question for you is. To have you back in the big east. In have the tournament at Mohegan it feels like Mohegan has become in a lot of ways year round home for women's vegetables, the hub of it, and when you throw in the the bubble Ville ornament that's coming that will include women's vegetable component. Is that the goal big picture is looking at Mohegan as. America's home for women's basketball as you see it. I mean. You. Is Never enough you know. Election. HAPPENING AT MOGI GET SIGNED RITA by. Look I think that arena. was built years ago that arena was such a great addition because it allows for such a variety of programming to come route. And basketball they aren't that sportster. A big part of that will always looking to diversify the content you know. So People Wanna come in and again going what's going on in the arena but spend. One Time appleby certainly intended to look at opportunities. For you on four other big east teams were basketball general to be smoking month against on arena. We love to see it and certainly always will look the opportunity. Appreciate your time. Thanks our. Next up. Big. East preseason player of the year Kristen Williams and big East preseason freshman of the year. Page backwards. I asked Kristen who let's not forget average double figures as a freshman was a consensus top overall player when she came in as well what she would have liked to have learned and known going in, she's passed on and I ask page about what success looks like take a listen. To our bedroom. Thank you and thank you all. Tend to chat. With us. I've one for you. One for you. H Show with you. When you think of and define success as your freshman year, how do you define it statistically or otherwise? I would say. Obviously. Many in everything avenue I hate losing. So I mean success to me is when everything not just games is drills and practice.

#176: Voicemail Potpourri

"March fourteenth twenty nineteen from alcohol in California. This is episode one hundred seventy six of you can bet on that. Hi, everybody. Welcome to you can bet on that podcast for the recreational gambler name is Mark divall and sitting across from me is Dr Mike. Hello, mike. I've got a question for you. All right based on our experiences the last week at the casino specifically last Friday. Are you still a recreational gambler? Boy, that's a good question. It's been rough. It's been terrible. That last Friday, honestly, literally, we had our worst night ever at Harrah's both of us. We're talking dollar amount. That's not hyperbole. It was. We really did. Each lose the most most law, and it's funny because prior to them switching over to this new card system for craps. You had said that you don't like this new system. Yeah. I said that before they split for that. But certainly with all the losses recently, you must just absolutely hate. I hate it. We haven't won yet. Yeah. And you know, you go through the math, and it comes out the same and everything. But for whatever reason is brutal. Yeah. It's been real. I was there last night just to pick up my free play played a little bit. And and in the short time, I played not one point was made. Yeah. That's like I was telling you ninety percent of the points were six eight. So you think one of them's going to be made if they were a bunch of fours. I'd say, okay. Well, it's hard to do. But no, sixes and eights couldn't make them. Yeah. So you know, we the year started great. But now we're a big slump so slump. It's I seriously. An I told you this I'm going to just go out there. And I'm going to put thirty dollars three way seven every role. He did say that before that bad Friday night. He is United. I they should honestly. Now, if I had done that how much would I have won a lot? Yeah. Or if you've been playing, the don't I mean, you would clean up clean trying to remember maybe one maybe two roles were winning roles that whole time nine year old. Yeah. I think there was some we'd get a little money back or you know, was too big a lot still loss. Yeah. No, they if we played the don't we would clean, and if I just had a seven on every role, I probably would have cleaned. There were so many immediate outs. It was raising. But so you're still recreational gambler, you think. Well, yeah, I'm going to say, yes, okay. I'm gonna agree with you. Because we've got some sports way. Ages that are going on right now. I told you turn off your phone, and you said, no, I'm going to be checking my phone while we record curious are not like it really matters that much, but I'm curious what matters is the quality of the show because all throw something over to you. And you're looking at your phone, and then I've got to edit out like thirty seconds. Silence. And then remind you what I just said, there's no no no that don't have to tell him that. I don't know any of that. All right. So difficult working with me. Oh, sure. Not just on the podcast. Your employees. Actually, my wife. Well, recently, one of our listeners was asking about Louisiana casinos. And we again, you had been to one some twenty years ago listener Hayden wrote in with some suggestions, I'm just gonna read his Email earlier in two thousand fifteen Tillman for Tita built a fantastic. Golden nugget in lake Charles, Louisiana, two hours from Houston. It's probably the nicest casino in Louisiana. Great rooms fantastic food fair rules overall for players a bit on the pricey side, though, twenty five dollar minimums for everything on the weekends with some fifteen dollar blackjack, but unfortunately, pay six to five at that table minimum. Otherwise, the twenty five dollar games are double deck pitch and pay three to two. There's also a great Indian casino in kinder-, Louisiana, two hours and forty five minutes from Houston called coup Shahdeh. This place is great with an enormous casino floor and ten dollar blackjack and craps on the weekends with fair player. Rules. I would recommend both very highly for different. Slash experiences. So there you go a couple of suggestions for Louisiana. And again, we it'd be nice to get down there. But we have to kind of pick and choose our trips. You know, these days it, just so happens. You know, gamble palooza this year's Atlantic City. So that's kind of that's our away trip. That's where we're going this year. I went to the lake Charles. That's where I was. Ok charles. It was a riverboat right at that time. Okay. That may not be there anymore. Probably noticed might be the replacement. Yeah. But yeah, I I actually liked it. Remember, I sure Harry hearings. There was fun. I didn't like that the boat actually did leave the dog. That's right. A lot of those riverboats had to before they couldn't just be docked to know they had to leave. So at midnight. You know, like this whistle would sound in. It's like if you want off get off now because you're stuck there for an hour is was the rationale behind that. I, you know, rationale behind anything in America. That's true. How about anything in the world? Oh, my loss. Yeah. I think you're right. The world what's the rationale behind? I mean, most things make absolutely no sense. I mean, it makes no sense to have a perfectly good crap system. And then change it to some crappy thing that nobody wins that you know, I'll tell you. I was reading an article I didn't write this down in the show notes. But there was a proposal that they were trying to get through the California legislature that would allow the tribal casinos to take sports wagers and also allow them to deal real craps and roulette really now as I was reading through the article it said, yeah, we didn't get the number of signatures necessary on the petition they needed some many thousand and they had zero zero zero signatures. We drove it didn't cite it. That's what it said the article, I'm thinking what let am I really had zero. Onion. Yeah. It's crazy. Oh, no real crafts roulette coming to see. Would actually go to a casino and ask any. What a sign if you're listening. We'll sign it. So that's too. There you go. Hey, thanks to everyone has been clicking through Amazon link. Remember whenever you're gonna buy something through Amazon, please go to our page. I you can bet on that dot com and click to our Amazon link towards the top of the page. Now, we've got a ton of voice mail. So let's see how many we can get through right now. Remember caller voicemail hotline, nine five one two nine two four three seven seven that's nine five one two wagers. Maybe we'll play your clip on the show first up, Scott. Hello, gentlemen. This is Scott from Indianapolis listening for a long time. But this is my first call, and I really only call them because on your last podcast. I think it was a gentleman named Adam who called in who said that he was a mainly crafts player that let's playing slots and had a nice win and shocked old because I had a very similar experience the girlfriend decided that she wanted to go to the local Caesar's casino here in Shelbyville, Indiana, which really doesn't have any table games. So it didn't really appeal to me, but I went along and we landed and he dollar slot machine. One of those deals where you know, two people can play at a time when a couch kind of thing. Well, we seven hundred dollars which tickled her to no end and she wanted to keep playing we played that down to three hundred. I said, well, let's take our money, and let's go, but on the way out I got distracted by a high limit room, which I did not realize. Existed. And I'm thinking, hey, we're playing with house money. Let's give it a go. So found a five dollar machine same setup with the couch. What have you and of playing fifteen bucks a spin? And within about forty five minutes. We get three separate hand pays for two thousand dollars followed by one of five thousand dollars followed by us third of two thousand fifty and after those we've played for probably another. I don't know maybe half an hour and long story short. We left north of ten thousand dollars which was more than I've ever won on craps. So I'm not saying because did slots player, but it's nice. Thanks, guys. Take care agreed story. I like how he said he was distracted by. Thinking of me. Is dragged by the highway. There's a special room we have seven hundred let's say we can lose it all well in order to play devil's advocate. Okay. Though, he said he was playing with house money. How do you feel about that state? Well, you know, I feel that. But I'm also guilty of playing with house money, right? Because I mean, that's part of the fun. Once he's ashed out though. It wasn't the house is money anymore. It was his it's never houses money. It's your money. But I understand that. I know some gamblers think of it that way, and it is fun. It's fun to do that. That's why have you would never go up to a table and put five thousand dollars on a four rights. If you pressed it all the way up to five thousand dollars, you'd leave it out. Then leaving though that's your money. Right, right. Yeah. Probably should it with his new craft system that sucks for everyone who's listening and goes to Harris, southern California. It's like most of the other California casinos, Mike, though. That's how this history. Yeah. I know what you know. It's particularly. Annoying. Just going to say this once I'm gonna let it die. We can go to several casinos that are way closer to our house here way, closer and get home at more decent times. And and play the same. We went to Harrah's because we'd like that system. And you know, that's one of the reasons why we would go there. And plus again, we've talked about it to Caesars property. So you know, the credits that we would get there. We could convert to Las Vegas, or you know, anywhere. Well, if the losing keeps up it's not worth it. Yeah. Right. We maybe you'll right or molar Borana. So that's you said that's the last year to talk about. It's the last. I'm gonna talk about it until the next caller. All right. Sounds good. Oh, and speaking of things you said you were going to do. Okay. Said you were going to take the stairs. I did what you did until it started rating. I gave you some slack there. Because raining it was re and their outdoor stairs. And they are very slippery. But did take the stairs. I'm goofy enough. I don't need wet stairs to walk right? And speed of wet. I think you did say make it wet once twice. I think it was out of anger though. Oh, more than a cocktail waitress dropped her trae. Oh, that's right. Went all over the floor. And all these people are trying to pick it up, and I yelled out make it wet. So I wonder what people thought about that. We we talked about the carpet, you know, that they're changing you, and I talked about it again. I bet they are just pulling their hair out at the horrible decision. They've made because you've seen it. It's all scuffed up. It shows. It's marks on. It looks terrible already in like a week. You know, let's money is how long have we been going to the casino? Well, I mean it opened a little over twenty years ago. We did go to the very beginning. But regularly nine years. Maybe maybe nine ten years. Have you ever seen a cocktail waitress drop or Trey? No that's true ever until they get new carpet. And in the end, it's a light colored carpet. Boom. It's like this big millions. Now, we've seen the ceiling fall down. Yes. Of course. And would have killed somebody. If they've been right underneath we've seen. Now, we've seen that was the old carpet yet hozeal ker. Thank god. Was ready when it covered up blood the injuries. All right. Let's your buddy Wendell. Hey, guys doing window from Denton, Texas. You know, friends of the didn't out beyond podcasts. I think it's been almost a year since I've called every time about the call. I think you call that is because you know, we might have been drinking. But anyway, I guess quick year. They back to what y'all are talking about is the whole gambling thing yesterday. I I was at work and this is random. Co looked a little puzzled. And I was like, hey, what's up? He's like, man. We just did our taxes, and I found out my wife went four hundred thousand dollars last year in seventeen. Jeez. And I was like, well, that's pretty extreme. I didn't know that. And he's like, no. And I'm like, where's the money at and his life was I guess it was like, I'm not sure. So it's kinda funny, man. No matter what your gambling. He kinda have to play through it to win it. So anyway, I hit my first row flush last year at the Golden Gate of it was progressive. So it was a little over two thousand three and it was pretty good, man. I had eight WD. Jeez. Myself last year already have three this year to nineteen. But anyway, I listened to every episode. So you have to go to work. Maybe we'll meet up one day in Vegas again. Have I found out my way? When four hundred thousand dollars in two you don't know you. You know, when you think about that statement, you don't know whether to be pissed off or happy. Because it's like we want a lot of money we're money and how we want it. I know we're laughing. But this might actually be a real problem. Yeah. Well, if I find out my wife's went four hundred thousand I'm going to be so pissed it really. Yeah. Why? Because she's because she's been gambling without you or because she's a better gambler. Then me. Oh, I see I got you. You're not going to be mad that you don't see any of the money. It's her gambling money. All right. Sounds good. Right. Next up is Kevin. Hi, Mike and markets, Kevin in Anaheim. So you haven't called us guys in a while then kind of busy with stuff and catching up on the podcast. Anyway, I just have a quick question for you guys. When you hear a southern California. I know that you guys tweet it out or maybe you put it on your Facebook or put it on something. But I was just curious. Are you guys going Friday into Saturday night or Saturday into Sunday night? I've been trying to gauge by conversation, you know, consistently when you guys are going, and let's say you guys are going next Friday or next Saturday. Whatever guys are consistently going. You know, if I want to try to meet up with you guys at Harris, southern California is there any identifying like clothes or things you guys wear. Do you guys have like you can bet on that, hats or shirts, or I just don't want to be running up to the table and asking people you might you marred yelling out muckleshoot or anything else. But yeah, it was hoping to come out there into play crafts and to just talk about gambling. But anyway, thanks for the show because you're great job in a talk. Later these days we are consistently going on Friday nights wreck so into Saturday. Yeah. So we get up there between seven and eight o'clock usually and were there till one or two in the morning. Yeah. We used to get up there closer to like six. Now, it's been more like seven and the best way to find. Well, Mike, usually has on a superhero shirt. Most most the time you could look for just somebody who has a hot chocolate on the top of their head yet. My other way to check I'll tell you what you really can do you could just stand by a table and just say to anybody. Where's mark? And might yet. And we're he's not kidding. Yeah. Ask any well players. Maybe not because there might be some, you know, people from out of town. But certainly any of the dealers any of the pit in the crap. Sorry, just say, hey are Mike and market a night. Yeah. Oh, yeah. They're over there. Oh, no haven't seen tonight. But yeah, Fridays, and you know, what we don't tweet out like we used to. We didn't get too many responses from that. And I would forget sometimes I'm thinking, so we just haven't been doing it anymore. But if you want to tweet to us or just send us a message on Twitter all respond and say, oh, yeah. We're going to be exact time there. Yeah. And you know, another good way is just looked for two guys standing next to each other at a craps table one of them on his phone completely oblivious to what's happening on the table. Right. Like, he's not interested doesn't understand the game. Or isn't interested interested in the other guy? He'll just look pissed off. Yeah. That is also a good one. I think you can figure out which. Joycean? All right next. Call. Hi, guys. My name's Andrew from Springfield mass. I just started listening to podcasts and law that we have a new casino here in Springfield. So that's piqued my interest in gambling after many years of not doing so quick little story about the Texas holdem game that they played the casino in menopause it there because if as you listen to the rest of the call I think he's talking about alternate, Texas holdem. So he's not talking about you know, the Pocono Rogaine. He's talking about the carnival game. Ultimate Texas holdem. Are you good and interesting? I've been several times in the dealers that are being trained here in Springfield with lots and learn I've seen so many people overpaid with full houses that dealers thought were on the flop and gave several hundred dollars way. But the other day, I was playing dealer came give someone a break and he didn't have hands to qualify, but he kept paying us. Anyway, even though we couldn't qualify. So the guy. I sitting next to me we're looking at each other. And all of a sudden, we doubled up our vets this guy was there for fifteen twenty minutes giving dealer a break, and we probably raked in a few hundred dollars just in him overpaying because he didn't realize that if he didn't qualify in pay so MGM Springfield as a lot of growing to do. When other question is if you play the dark side with crafts, how do you remember the odds to put down on your bet? I have a hard time keeping that straight. But anyway, I'm a new listener. And hopefully, we'll be making some money here in Springfield. Thank you, Andrew actually callback. He wanted to kind of he wasn't ragging on the dealers because he said the dealers are actually very very nice. They just haven't been trained. Well, right, right. So he which is not uncommon. No, we've found that quite often, especially newer places or beginner places. I guess we're dealers go to learn you'll dealers. Like, yeah. I remember when we. Replaying at the D And we were playing three card poker? And you ended up with a straight. But you lost right. And you you're still supposed to be paid the bonus on the Anne and the dealer didn't think so. Yeah. Right. So we had to have the pit come over and ask so. Yeah, it happens. Yeah. She was a very nice dealer. Yes. Didn't know all know all the rules, which always amazes me. I mean, if I owned a place where I was giving somebody some kind of a thority to pass out my money. I think I'd wanna know that they really knew when they were supposed to give it out. And when they weren't supposed to get it out. I think this happens a lot on carnival games. Because in this example, that we were talking about she probably wasn't exclusively three card poker? She probably did blackjack and she ultra Texas all the other games. And the, you know, this is just one that she had learned along with everything else. And just didn't learn it, you know, all the way. Well, and it's one thing to learn a game. And it's another thing to be proficient. Tilling that's through to. Yes, we don't even think about it. You just know that this because what if like one week, you know, they just happen to put me on blackjack every night this week. And then so it's been two weeks and she dealt alternate, Texas, hold and you go back, and you're trying to think what were the rules on that. You know? I mean seriously, it can be a little confusing, sir. Now as far as don't pass odds, go here's something that you can keep in mind, if you're playing at a three four five table, if you're playing the don't no matter what the point is you can put six times your don't pass bet behind for odds. Right. And that will be the correct maximum amount. Right. Six times because of the point is four or ten well that six dollars will pay three and if the points five or nine that's six dollars will pay for if the point six or eight six dollars will pay five and in fact, in general, no matter what the odds are at a casino as long as you're betting, a multiple of six that doesn't go over how much is they let you bet long as it's. A multiple of six you're making for the proper nouns. Right. Yeah. So I, you know, otherwise, you just kind of have to memorize the numbers. But that's something to keep in mind. Just six or pulisic's or distal do like most people do that. Now. What's the most? I can put. Yeah. You can always do you? You know, you don't like to be somebody just constantly asking. But you know, you ask a few times you'll probably pick up on it. Right. Yeah. All right. Next up. His Anthony Martin Dr Mike. This is Anthony from Connecticut. You got a story about my first time playing crap last night. I bought in for sixty bucks at about ten minutes. Play I roll around and hit a six and then seven out all comes around. And I use the money on the heart six eight at just like listening to Dr Mike just like he does I got to parlay the first. And then I pressed him second time and hit for three separate times on the heartache a lot of fun. I made a bunch of money, which was you know, obviously, even more fun but question not used to sipping on a craft civil. I usually play roulette a relied every time I win. I think if you chips gossip dealer but last night, I think I gave the dealers three dollars just for them and also made a dollar on the heart sex heart aid for them. And I believe that the hard eight hit twice it might have only have one. I was about ten minutes. And I'm a obvious newbie. And the dealers were really great me. I'm curious if that is a little a lot. I just you know, I think it's important. It's if the dealers wanna make sure that right? Well, if you were down to sixty dollars. Yes. And you're basically making five dollars bet for the dealer just gave them three. And then made you know, a dollar bet each. Yeah. I'd say that's fine. That's a lot. Yeah. You know, you know, if you start to win more than sure put out some more for them. But I think at that point yet. That's fine. Oh, I think he did a perfect. Yeah. Actually and. I wanna emphasize that many many dealers that I've talked to are very happy. If somebody tips a dollar, I mean, some people I feel weird just tipping. It'll they're so happy that people tip just a dollar because they're in a no loose situation. If that bet loses. Well, you know, it's money. They didn't have any way. And if it wins, they get more than was actually bet for him and it drops in the box, and they're happy and in the long run. That's how they make money and a lot of times. That's how I will tip. I'll just put a dollar say on the pass line for every shooter or all throw in one hard. Every time appoints mate. I'll just pick a hard way. If it's the point now throw it in or if it's like nine or five, I'll just decide on one just giving a hardware. I think most dealers are very happy. If anyone tips, especially the craps table because a lot of people don't tip a lot at the craft's able especially there's very little tipping. What game? Do you think tips? The most well blackjack blackjack shirt or people 'cause it's easy. They just put a dollar decks their bet, right? Yeah. Okay. Let's see. You're from amber high and Mark and the Mike this is amber. And I am calling in because I heard you episode on the stigma of gambling. And I wanted to give you a different take on it last weekend. I was in Reno with my boss, and we were at a conference the casino, and it was a great opportunity because of some are by gambling knowledge to take her around and show her different games. And I I also introduced her a little bit to the crap table, and we actually had a fun time. It was a great way for us to kind of bond at work. So sometimes it kinda works out a little different. The other thing is I wanted to give you a trick report on the Atlantis in. I have a question. I actually went in and started out at the video poker machine. Had a good run in the morning forgot to put in quarters at one point and hit a four of a kind. So I was really quick to change that. And but in the full bet, and I. Ended up hitting another Florida kinds. It was actually a great run Atlanta's Atlanta's a full service casino. It has a spa a wonderful. Stay Cal and a great crap table with a five dollar limit. So at the end of the night after a conference I went to the crap table, and I started to buy in. And there was an older gentleman next to me who basically did not want to give up his spot. So the dealer looked at him and asked him if he wanted to shift over to give up his spot, and it happened to be the always thought that was opened. And of course, he didn't want to do that either. So we all kinda came to an impasse. And finally, he acquiesced, and he was he didn't wanna be he wanted to be the last person on the table. So he looked down the second to last person. And I don't know if it was superstition, but one of the other players at the table called me a lucky charms. And the next thing, you know, we were all again rolling and we rolled a bunch of pathway that everyone. Having a great time. And we went for a few minutes, and then everyone started to seven out again, and I took off. So it was a great experience that I don't know if you've ever had a situation where you've come up on a table and someone simply just did not want to let you in for whatever recision once again, I wanna thank you for giving you the courage to call in. I know I've emailed you the past. And also, I want to thank you for a job that you do with Dr Mike if lots of fun to listen to your podcast, and I've learned a ton about gambling and this weekend. I actually got to make a work connection. So hope you're having a great sevi- and staying warm down San Diego. And once again, thanks for all you do. Wasn't that a great call very, and I just want to emphasize to people to you know, if you're if you're hesitant to call, and I certainly understand it, you know, you'd be a little nervous but call in. And you know, if you stumble over your words, or you pause too long, you say all edit that all, you know, so fixed a real clean. But so yeah. And we're really glad that you called in. I, you know, a superstition about letting people into the table. I was she's telling that story. And I'm thinking I would love for somebody not to let me in. I was just I would just like for you to see what that's li- would like to see that too. I would like to see somebody not letting you. Yeah. Hey, we'd get an earful. Oh my God. I'd probably get kicked out. You know, it's I'm trying to think to a super step. We've been in situations like that where people just don't want to move or. No, it's too crowded already or whatever, you usually isn't too crowded. Right. Well, if it's too crowded, we're not budging are well that we're not right. And it didn't sound like this was what he was doing. She was room. Yeah. It's one of those guys that's in between two spots. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. I don't think it's a superstition. I don't think people are thinking if she comes in. It's going to hold or it's going to seven out or something. I just don't think they're just lazy. Don't wanna move wanna lock out for whatever reason, you probably just wanted to lot of ru. And it is nice to have a lot of room. I'm sure always picking empty table. Because we like we do when it's full it's full. And you know, you're not going to turn people away. I say get as many people in there as you can. Well, certainly the casino wants that table is designed to handle a certain number of people. And I like it actually because there's more chances somebody's going to have a good role. I just I feel like like, well, you know, maybe these three won't do so good. But that fourth guide might be the guy in a crowded table when the dice do get hot. You know? It's a very exciting. Well, and you love it because the game goes slower. So you get more rating. Yeah. Right. Exactly. And I can play a lot more Sadako. Yeah. In between roles. Next call. Hey, guys. It's on him from Connecticut. I just wanted to call today just to get a quick little rundown of what you guys think about Spanish twenty one MGM Springfield. Just got a few Spanish twenty one games. And I actually played it on Monday night and had quite a bit of fun with it once money. It's wonderful. It's you know, under twenty five dollars a hand any blackjack pays three to. I think you know, as with all Spanish twenty one player Twenty-one always beats the dealer twenty one. And it just seems like overall to me of a better and more fun game. There's also those bonus payouts for certain combinations. Like twenty one that's six seventy seven seven seven so on and so forth. I also played the match the dealer side bet. And it got me thinking I feel like in Spanish twenty one the match the dealer bet is a better bet them the match to dealer bitten regular blackjack. I'm gonna tends being out of the deck. I just feel like there's there's more of a chance that one of your two-thirds or both of them. It's going to match the dealer's cards. I hit the bet quite a bit. And I have played it in blackjack at Mohegan sun. You know, it's not that great in blackjack, but I feel like it was a lot more. We could have in Spanish twenty one. And I just wanted to get your thoughts. If you see if you guys have run the math on that. And let Mark tell me how bad about it is and let Dr Mike telling me to continue betting it. All right. I look forward to hearing from you guys. Like, my father loves Spanish twenty. Yes. He does. He does it is. Honestly, I think his favorite game. And it's a good game. It really is. Because if you're playing basic strategy, the house edge is less than one percent, in some cases, it might be better than the blackjack game that the casinos, especially if it's six five blackjack. Yeah. Exactly. So yeah, we talked about Spanish Twenty-one on sewed sixty five. So if you want a little bit more information on it. Go back to that episode. But the gimmick is that they take all the tens out of the deck, not the face cards, but the actual ten hits. And then there are all these extra things that you can. Do you know in bonus payouts and things like that? So yes, the match the dealer bet does hit more often in Spanish Twenty-one because of what Adam was talking about. Is it better than the match the dealer bet at regular blackjack while? Yes, if the pay tables with the same for sure, yeah. So it would really depend on by painting tables, but the house edge on the match the dealer bet at Spanish Twenty-one around three percent, which is fairly low for aside. Say for a side bet that is fairly low because most of them are a lot more than that. So no, I wouldn't bet it Mike would probably bet at every time. Exactly, exactly. As you expected us. And I think you should place finish twenty once fun. It is. Let's talk about that. Do you? No, no. I don't either. But I'd love to know if anyone knows that you could probably just go onto Wikipedia probably says, I don't know. I mean, just why Spanish when he developed in Spain. I'm not gonna look it up. Because I it's there's some things that magical in the world that I don't wanna know the case. So folks, don't contact us. Yeah. What always wonder I wonder where that came that's more fun than actually knowing? Okay. Very one of those things when you find out. It's going to be like, well that's stupid. All right. Well, you're gonna love this next call then because it's going to teach you a lesson already. All right here. We go. Homework and your dentist friend. My name is VIN from Pennsylvania, first time caller longtime listener, anyway, I'm just calling as a mask guy, I'm disappointed in you. Mark you keep allowing your dentist friend play horn. Hi ace deuce. There's a better way, you should be praying four dollar craps and one dollar yo instead you vis the same amount of money, but with four dollars craps and one dollars zero the payout is better for the high low. Check the math love your show by why am I getting in trouble? I don't understand. It keeps us Gobi come on. It's your fault. Right. So he's exact Mark lets me do any. He's exactly right and Mike. I've got a chart here on the page. We're not gonna describe because it is a lot of numbers, but you can see for yourself. The bottom line is if you're talking about a horn bet hi ace twos horn, heist stews, which you'd bet five units on versus betting a CNA where you have four units on the sea and one unit on the e four on any craps in one on E. Okay. The eleven and the three pay the same on both bets. Right. But the two and the twelve pay one unit more on the CAD. Okay. It's the two in twelve that it's the two and twelve that make a difference. So every time you're making a horn. Hi ace deuce. It's the same as if you were betting a big six or eight instead of placing it how many times have you seen me make a horde ice deuce in the last. Let's say year. Okay. Folks. Here's what he does for real. Okay. He didn't think I was gonna see he'll make a horn bet. And then he'll make a separate as stews. Like, it's not part of the scene bet. Well, do what I do is. I make a world bet. Yeah. And then I make an ace to an eleven and a high low bet okay right now, if if one of them has if one of the horn numbers hits I parlay the world all to the horn. Yes. And I leave up the ace deuce the eleven in the high low bed. So I have does. Boy, I don't know that aired. I press my seven up sixty more knives, you're digging their own grave here. All right. I'm going to be a lot of people. But you know, what? That's what makes me happy. Okay. You know, what I'm going to go through everything that you just said I'm gonna put it into a spreadsheet. I'm going to find a way for you to bet the exact same amount on the exact same numbers and get paid more and get paid more. Maybe that's why you've been losing lately. It's yeah. You know, what it's gonna be? It's gonna be when you gave me that spreadsheet to show me how bad my bets are if I didn't make them how much more I would win and how much less I'd lose. If I did it this way. And how did that go over? But I'll tell you folks, it was I opening Mike's jaw dropped, but he didn't change a thing xactly because you know, what? I know you're right. But it's not what I believe. I can't argue with that. Yeah. Next. Call good morning. Mark good morning sector, Mike. This is Melanie Colin from Colorado just got back from a great Vegas trip. They downtown at the cow late at the infamous two times Cal table. But I will say that table is a lot of fun. We had a super hot roller. So that was great get one three hundred option. Then I'm floral tastic he was a day setter. He said it recused police the next to the six men touch. They kind of three times to get like a really light, touch, but they still kinda rolled all over the place. So I was thinking dice control is more about seeing on access and not bouncing around too much. But it's like they get bout. However, the guy killed it. I mean, he really gets at six eight different times. So anyway, had a great time when we were there with that guy rolling this really drunk, maybe twenty one year old I'm going to say Australian guy team up, and he threw a bunch of big wad of cash on the table. And he. He said something. And I thought he says nine dealer Saudi said nine he he said he said eight, but it was very difficult understanding between the accident and alcohol anyway, so they cut it all out. He had brought just as wads of tens and fives. And I mean, I'm sure it's like monopoly money to him. But they cannot allow three hundred dollars. I guess he wanted on the eight, but it's only nine so anyway, they didn't get the breakdown you roll the Nate. And he was very upset. And like we couldn't hear you. We're gonna put it where you want it now. Okay. Five so he hits it doubled up pockets of walkway twenty minutes later. He's back again ten five twenty dollar out puts it all on eight loses his time. Okay. Come back. Again. This is three hundred dollars in same thing. We were changed bills and puts it on eight working on the come out last night one. And that was it. We didn't see him after that. 'cause I did see him this sort of pacing through the casino. Very interesting. We've got a great time. We went to see the righteous brothers. We had dinner at Toby Keith someway out in my dad thought it though, mentally. Having dinner with the band and his daughter. So anyway, we said hi, and he was super nice. So it was kind of a highlight. And I love the show can't wait to hear today. All right. Bye guys. What you see left that voice mail on the day when we were supposed to write Robin episode. But it was when you were sick. So melody, I apologize for that. You were able to hear my ability to make it up to Melanie next time. I see you in Vegas. Melanie? I'm going to tell you a drunk Australian story that will make you laugh so hard, right? Yeah. Good because Mike lived in Australia for a little while. Yeah. Did live in Australia and a little while. But this happening Kabo San Lucas. Right. But it it's about a drunk. Australian I'm not gonna go into it. Now. It's okay. And don't tell me either. I wanna hear at the same time. I'll tell you. I'll tell you both in Vegas. So where was this guy getting all these small bills from and then coming back to the table? What was he doing? He's Australian, obviously if you don't know the currency, very, well, you you may not know, right? But it is kind of annoying when somebody comes up to the table with a huge wad of small bills. And this happened recently had Harry's southern Californians. We're guy came up. What did he have like five thousand dollars? And it was all twenty all twenties all twenties. It was five thousand dollars in twenties. It took him forever to count that out. I don't know what his goal was if it was superstition or whatever. But if I had all that money in twenty s I go up to the cashier. I have them run it through their machine right into the machine in two seconds. It's five thousand they'll give you five thousand dollars in hundreds. And then go to the table, right? Whatever. It's not funny thing is that guy. Did you notice he bought in for the whole? Five thousand all in twenties. They countered it out. And I'm thinking, okay. Well, this guy's a player. He's gonna make some bets like me. He's going to put seven eight hundred dollars out there on the table and one time, right? No put out like forty something dollars. It was like a ten dollar you put out like forty bucks. Why didn't you just buy in for like five hundred? Why did you plan for five thousand if you're going to get forty bucks? I can't figure out all the people. I can figure out some of the people I can't figure out all the people a money launderers when own that's what it was twenty twenty dollars mil mongering twin? All right, next call's from Jesse the audio is a little iffy on it. But I think you'll be able to understand most of the call. So here goes. Mark Dr Mike 'cause Jessie from Texas getting a call back on my trip Portsmouth's caliber, I just got back on Thursday drum role as far as the trip goes. It was really really good. As far as Amblin goes, probably the worst trip I've ever had lost pretty much every time. I took the only good news is that the airport. I found a quarter on the floor of Siri. So I didn't come home with that. So that was good nice. Otherwise, it's a good trip. I pretty much supposedly or have been in the past. It's one of those hotels. If you're willing to kind of, you know, nor the fact that it is kind of a low low roller place, I'm willing to say kind of hotel. They can't really be five dollars minimums on all the tables and most part, they do have some ten dollars per after an evening, and maybe weekends a believe. But for the most part slot dollars. They have two tables. Now, they just installed crap was crafts, which I actually hated do. Not enjoy dealers seem to hate it as well. They do have dollar machines as far as like shoot the win. They have dollar video point Jak and video roulette because you're so you guys talked about down under blackjack to deal with. You have down under by cable now, which is really neat ten dollars minimums, but it was really interesting to play. If I wanted some money out of played longer did also play shares a little bit really enjoyed playing over there. Probably will say there's probably more experienced hamblur is better viewers just seems to be more fun general than my experiences other than that. I've never seen more points. Seven point seven point sevens in my life, wouldn't even play. The don't cause. Take four with the, you know, of course, flips around I think I saw the most two points established maybe three when I was a Harris at the most other than that dealers. Tears. Really great. But the dealers that Excalibur kinda hit miss I'm had a couple of bad experiences. But a couple of really great ones too. So be talking to that. But as far as the dealers Gelber on had a couple of France's where they're almost demanding hardware bet for me that I was placing for them was really frustrating. And then the only other thing of interest. I had is I was getting ready to throw a salesman civil point can got from stick with one looks over at me and says they look on your extra bud froze down point six dollars and don't have seven out. So that was frustrating. But anyway, the microbe you feel better, and I really look forward to listen to the ultimate show. I'm going in that story at the Jesse actually wrote back just to clarify exactly what happened because the way described as I was even thinking, wait what happened? So the guy made a don't pass bet, right? Yes. He established a point. And then the guy looked at him and said the good luck. On your next throw. But and that's when he seven now. So. It was throwing down money. And then the next seventy that wouldn't make sense. So right just to clarify. But it was like he was egging him on the story. Yeah. That's definitely the point of the story sky diving kidding. Yeah. Excalibur? I mean, he shouldn't just throw the dice at him. Good luck. Wasn't good. Thank you, sir. Thank you. I was gonna say Excalibur. It's not that bad a place to stay. No. It's just you know, it's kind of older and their kids, but you know, low limits. It's okay. So, you know, what's funny? I've always liked Excalibur. It's true. I'm kind of the same way. Although I can't remember last time. I stepped foot. You know? What's funny? We went on this last trip. We drove in we went by caliber. And I said dilemma I said, we should bring the girls over here. There's stuff for kids. You know, and it's kind of fun. And then we just never did it. I've mentioned that like three times. Now, never done the kids. Probably think what's he talking about. Takes us there to lie. It's just a big torture chamber inside. That's right. It's a Pasol looks fun from the outside. All right next. Call. I Kevin calling from Toronto Canada. I'm a new listener. But I've been going to your podcast. They're really entertaining. You guys really show. What the social and fun aspect of gambling is all about kind of my question to you is, you know, I'm relative new players crap. But I've really dived into the game and learned all the different aspects of it. But I don't get to play that often. And what I actually do to kind of keep up on craps related information is watch videos on YouTube. So for example, I watch Colorado and the road gambler, do you guys have any favorite YouTube channels that you watch to kind of see the different crap strategies or proper roles that go on throughout the US. Thanks a lot. I really share your podcast have a debt. We don't really watch YouTube channels for the craps, but we have heard great things about the to the you mentioned color up and roll gambler. In fact, we mentioned road gambler here recently where he actually records. Crap sessions at the casino. One of our listeners actually contacted us and said that he suspects road gambler is using like a spy camera that maybe his on his like a button or maybe on his glasses or something because. Yeah, if it were he made a good point of his phone like in his pocket would kind of move around quite a bit, right. He kinda shale. Maybe it's on his glasses. Then he just has to look at what's going on. Yeah. It could be they'll what do you think would happen to have? If you got caught. I don't know. That's a good question. Because he's not using it to cheat at the game. Certainly, no entertainment. This is a good question. I guess would depend on the casino. But I don't think he could be charged with a crime. I'm not a lawyer. So don't quote me. But yeah. Well, I mean, that's probably what would happen. It seems to me like you take your glasses away escape. No. All right next up is Nate. This is Nathan Kansas City lovers in the show getting excited for of the biggest for much madness. And let me playing craps last time. I was in day. I was they on a Monday kind of having our trip there with my wife, and she didn't want gambling more. So it was just myself at a craps table in downtown grand slow day on minimum table. I generally like to be able to organize my chips to kinda know where I'm at in comparison to I bought it. So what I was doing with kind of dividing my chips, like they'd be, you know, up in red shifts with a one dollar white shift inbetween, and that's kinda how I staggered everything. So I had an idea where I was at. And you know, the dealer's hey, shouldn't do that. And I'm not sure exactly why I can't do it. I don't know. If it was gotta kick paying that's just something around just curious if you've ever heard of this and just to know what's going on with that. Thanks show. I've never heard of that. It's crazy. I don't know why a dealer would say you shouldn't do that is not you can't do that. You shouldn't do that. Is it because the dealer singing? Well, you shouldn't count your chips. You know, when you never count your chips. It's so that has to be it. I bet you. That's it. I think Diller who's like, oh, it's bad luck to count your chips. Don't do that. It could be. I know I've heard people say that. Oh, stop counting. My dad says that to me every once in a while. Oh, stop counting them, it's bad luck. But you, and I we constantly accounting are gonna player I do the same thing. I separate them, you know, using the white chips to kinda separate I it's certainly not against the rules of the casino. And a lot of times I'm doing it just to keep myself busy sure between I mean, you know, I count I've got thirteen hundred dollars. And then I wind seventy on a five, and I cannot get thirteen seventy. I didn't know. And sometimes you do have a lot of low denomination chips. And it's hard to tell how much you have. Right. And you do want to know. Hey, upper am I right or how close them I usually thinking close of my closing my need to make another horn Haier's deuce bet. So I can get even or so many t shirts we should have how close am I and then on the back, you know, horn high as to? Oh, cool. Just a shirt. This is how close people wear that anywhere. That would be great because I come up to you. Hi, Nick lose. What does that mean? How close and then he just turn around says horn high stews crystal clear right here. It's horrid. Hey stews. Oh. Just horn Haier's deuce would be good. Because a lot of people be like, what's a is that offensive if I think it's offensive. I heard that on a rap song. All right. Let's hear from Adam again. Hey, guys. This is Adam from Connecticut. I just wanted to call. I give you guys an update, unfortunately, it's not a great update about MBM, Springfield. And some things that I've noticed lately when it first opened I loved it. It was nominally had ten dollars crafts tables, which I really prefer five, but I can play him. I'm not a big deal the cruiser phenomenal which they still are. I will give them that. They're still absolutely amazing crews. However, I was at MGM tonight. It's Sunday night. I was there in Phil about midnight a little after midnight even at eleven pm on a Sunday night. They had three craps tables open and the lowest limit was fifteen dollars. There was one that was basically, I'm being I ask them if they would mind lowering ten dollars, and they said, no, they have Spanish twenty there. Which is the nominal pay are right on Spanish twenty one which was great. However, they had fifteen dollars, and then they had twenty dollars which I have. Never ever ever in any casino table where they twenty dollar minimum that it's ridiculous. I can't believe that they're doing it. And they are just destroying that. Just you know, it's only been open some I guess I will say the program still phenomenal. It still one of the nicest Booker around. I'll though Mohegan is redoing their some periods. If there's like I was excited when mpm announced that they were opening in Springfield because it's a twenty five minute drive from me as opposed to an hour and five minutes to get the Mohegan. However, I think at this point it's more prudent for me as a crafts player. The drive extra forty minutes by ten dollar crafts a Mohegan sun. Even on the weekends. They have ten hour crafts abundant. They have one five dollar table. Doesn't made it as five dollars. I believe twenty four hours a day if not if they majority of five dollars. Yes, it can be packed with Paige blackjack right next to it. We can sit and play backtracking total crop and a little bit where you can just stand around. And wait, it's up to you. Honestly, I'm very disappointed them GM. And I. Experience. That's just one of many. That's a nice variance has ruined it. I also was upset with the fact that a fifteen dollar we left table. They will not let you play one dollar inside. They will only let you play five dollars trips inside. I get Mohegan back towards fifteen dollars tables. No problem. They'll as long as you're betting the minimum PayPal minimum. They will give you Stoller chips and the and five dollars trips. That's it. It's ridiculous. It's Steve ary. And I kind of wish at this point with the way that you guys talk about Caesar's properties. I really wish that it was a seizes probably had one bit at Springfield. Anyway, you know, hopefully, I'll be calling you with a fixed fire that win at Mohegan pretty soon back to Mike I know that you're going to be in the Boston area and got cut off. There was a three minute Mark. He actually wrote us in an Email afterwards realizing he got cut off. He went on to say that he was actually planning to me would MGM Springfield. But he was so put off by this. He just doesn't plan on going anymore. Yeah. And I probably not gonna make. Yeah. I was gonna say you're. You're pretty busy schedule turns out to be so tight. I just don't know it. I mean, it might be a minor miracle, and I might make okay chances are not good. Yeah. Obviously the casinos will make their minimums to whatever the market will allow right. So sure, you know in and that can happen is and yeah, if you don't like it go somewhere else. That's how many dollars this ridiculous. Like well. Yeah. And it's funny. We talked about I I know on an episode some time ago, the only time I've ever really heard about a twenty dollar table is on pie gal where they deliberately have twenty dollar chips too. So that it's only a dollar commission make that commission. That's the only time I've actually heard about that. But yeah, if you you know, if you're enjoying a different casino if they've got better limits. Go ahead. Make the drive. That's certainly what we do know. Like, we said earlier, right? I drive a lot farther because we enjoy playing it here southern California when we own a casino, Mark. This is what we're gonna do. Okay. Our blackjack tables. We're going to have a big wheel behind the blackjack table K. And it's going to have it's going to be like. One of those big wheels where you know in the big Wilders more dollar slots on there are twenty dollars right dollars. Ours is going to be the opposite. It's going to have like tens and fifteen and a lot of them. But then it's going to have some five since some twos and some ones. Okay. Okay. Every fifteen minutes the dealer, spins the wheel and for the next fifteen minutes. The minimum is whatever it lands now there. That's good. Yeah. Whatever lands the Soviet lands on one for the next few minutes, the minimum bets dollar. That's lands on fifteen. It's fifteen. It'll always be changing. Yeah. That's a great idea. I can't see any problems with it. It'll be fun. I'll tell you this roulette thing though, that is infuriating. Yeah. Fifteen dollar minimum. But you have to make five dollar bets on those inside bet that doesn't make sense it really doesn't. And it's not like I mean, sometimes they do that on tables because they don't want a lot of chips out. Like, I understand on a repeater bed. They want five dollar bets only or something. They don't want all these ones and everything I understand that relent that doesn't matter people to stack it up right at right? It's a stack. Plus, it's a fifteen dollar minimum table. Most people who wanna play the fifteen dollar table are spreading out. They're not putting five dollars chips in the middle of their spreading. They're taking fifteen ones and spreading in a bunch of numbers. Anyway, you how can you figure them out? You can't I like I said I can figure some people. I can't figure them. All. Yeah. We can't figure me out when my big will. No. Well, I think I figured it out since your mouth open. All right, next up is Tim. I'm Mark in Dr Mike. This is Tim from Minnesota. I'd like to give a trip report from a recent trip to grand falls, Iowa has a nice nice little casinos. Got to traps tables, one with the fighter bet. I was up on three times on the fire bitten for points or maiden up on side points and made some money there and this week marks one year since I started listening to your podcast. I was looking for some blackjack information came across your podcast and one behold, I found out that I love playing craps, and it really love the way you guys explain this the game. I know Tyler for Minnesota. You happens to be my son, it perhaps you remember his daughter is Dr Mike there. Oh, yeah. It was. So Tyler would come home and he'd say Hello. Like you do at the beginning of the show. Hello and has done. So it was Dr Mike. He recently had a trip to Las Vegas and said the only one when he hit y'all tall small. Well, they have some advice for them and had been giving it to him for some time. If he never plays the four and ten I tell him the place a foreign ten, but you only place inside numbers. So maybe it'd be hears it on the hod cast for gambling. He may be get start listening to me. Well, love the podcast and for Dr Mike even though Minnesota doesn't have crafts we found just across the border in Wisconsin and Iowa and it's coming to South Dakota. Also, keep up the good work thing. All right. I can't bring myself to say absolutely by the foreign tan, but you do a lot. I do the recently. Yeah. I have been doing it even numbers for is what I'll say if they take the big only on winds then. Yeah. That's not a bad bet. It's under two percent. But if they take the Vig. Ahead of time. So in other words, you're paying big whether you win or lose it's over four percent almost five percent. And so I can't bring myself to actually suggest that you want to do. I will suggest it. Okay. Has it's the moneymaker my friend moneymakers fours, and tens you bet that sure it's not gonna hit all the time. But when it hit so it's so sweet, it's so fun pick your money up. You take a lap around the table, and he just stopped to some random guy just easier phase. So funny to hear Dr Mike sadist because for a long time. Those are the two Betsy wouldn't make I wouldn't make or in ten now. It's one of his new things. It's fun. Yeah. I guess. So it's the only thing left at heritage other California. All right. Let's get to our last call here. I do want to say that those phone sounds that you've been hearing those things, and switches and everything and that's Mike on his phone looking at all this is going to do. All right last call from Chris. Hey, guys, your podcasts. I thought was pretty cool. I wanna give. You my trip report in the Denver area. My niece Chris at an afternoon to kill headed up to the block area. The American are and played some crafts with Dan my last sixty dollars, and I went onto hit the all small in one role. Not once not twice but three times over fifty roles. And I ended up getting out there was about nine hundred seventy five dollars as a helluva helluva afternoon. Thanks, guys. Nice three times twice. We've seen it twice. And I had that big one at the D. Remember, that's what I'm saying. That's what I'm saying. Like twelve thousand dollars on that. Yes. But three that's something else. That would be sweet. Well, congratulations, Chris. Or March madness is coming up. It's actually going to start before we drop our next episode. Right. So everybody, you know, good luck on your brackets, good luck on your brackets. I've actually set up a couple of groups on ESPN for both the men's and the women's tournaments that I want to encourage people to join the it's not for money or anything. We're just going to do it for fun. Just like we did last time. I'll all actually tweet about this. So people can you know, it's all right. It's ver bragging rights. The groups are named. It's you can bet on that. All one word, you can bet on that space, men's EMMY and apostrophe S and also you can bet on that space women's so those two again all tweet about it. But I don't know if you if you actually search on ESPN, I don't think you can actually join the group unless you get an invitation. So I'll put the invitation in Twitter so that everybody can just follow that link and go in there. And so we encourage you to do that. Again, just for fun. Now, I find inter that will any of the players on any of the teams in the tournament actually be on the team because their parents paid a lot of money to get them into the school. They don't even know how to play the game. Yeah. That's a good question. I might understandings about twenty percent of the roster don't actually play. That's my understand may have just paid to get on the bed. Exactly. Yes. They sit on the bench. So I wonder if I can pay to sit at the crafts table and not play. I do that every week in here. Casino might pay. You there's Dr Mike. Yeah. It's go play on that tail. See it's gotta be scowl interface. It's going to do it for this episode. Thanks for people for some pay pal donations. First of all from Chris wish me luck on my March madness trip. Loved the show Chris from round rock, Texas. Yeah. Good luck. Also from Chas gator. Karma donation for an upcoming Las Vegas trip starting March seventeenth wishing both of you a healthy prosperous and happy twenty nineteen love the show. Sincerely, Chaz gator. The second Z is silent in Chas. Oh, I pronounced it wrong. The first time I said at that he has to do it again. Also, a donation from an karma donation for our upcoming trip to Vegas on March twenty fourth started listening to the showroom Christmas and have listened to all of two thousand eighteen then twenty seventeen and now I'm working my way back through twenty sixteen. I think that's actually a good idea. Because then there you're less likely to be surprised by our April Fool's episode because you'll hear the one afterwards. I don't know they getting better. So they're listening. They're rushing. Oh, it's terrible. Yeah. We're not as good as hosts. And certainly the audio is a lot worse. So yes.

But have a good trip. What else do you have to say for us here to wrap it up, Mike? Well, speaking of being sick. Have you been following the Padres? Not really. Honestly, I have ain't really have the best spring season record. Oh, do they for the in their Arizona in the zone, really up? I didn't know that. Yes. It doesn't mean much. It means nothing because they're going to you know, suck when the year starts, but seriously are we going to be in Vegas before the season starts? No. I don't know. No. We're not going to be there till Memorial Day. We're going to be in Atlantic City after the season has started eating, right? That'll be after I was thinking how do we going to get a bed on the Padre? Is to win at all. Oh, I I can probably figure something healthy or something. We should seriously. Make a bet on that. Well, we know it's throwing money. We already a listener already made a bit for us. I've got that in the drawer bed of our own. Oh, okay. All right. All right. They might be good this year. I mean, it's not what you said last time. He said they have no pitching they have no pitching. And I don't think they're going to be good. But they might say there's some promise there's some hope as there is every spring, but I need always, you know, has gone by April ten. Anyway, I'm excited about baseball coming to excited about the NCAA basketball. Turn of course, as I said before it's thing and we've been doing good on our sports betting. Yeah. We have. Yeah. Since I convinced you to bet the exact opposite of what you think it was so bad. We had Saturday that was so bad. I actually came up with this brilliant idea. I said, you know, Mike tomorrow, I'm doing the exact opposite of what I've and you said, well, you know, what's going to happen. Exactly. You're probably lose the ball again. Because no, it's working. Sean. We've been on a hot streak with that. So maybe we'll just give up playing craps at Harris, southern California. And we'll just concentrate on sports wagering. Yeah. I can see that happening anything else. No. All right. Thanks for listening today. Mark. That was wonderful had no idea you were. So talented, the audience is gonna love you.

"Thank you for listening to this. Podcast one production. No available on spotify apple podcasts. Podcast one dot com in anywhere else. You podcasts twenty podcast. One Presents House of Kim with Kim Zodiac Bearman. Join Kim her husband and six children as she shares her journey to success and the positive mentality that brought her there. Come on in and make yourself at home. Now here's your host to Kim's all CEAC bearman welcome to this episode of House of Kim. Welcome to this episode. It's GonNa be a big one You guys have you had the flu. Never had the flu knock on some wood. The only real had the flu last year or this year this year because kicked her out onto go to. She made her talents last year. Nineteen towards the ball so Chi- Looked really bad so we were at Mohegan Sun. Doing an appearance. Friday night came home late Saturday night and Kaya and cage actually look really bad to me and then Sunday Kaya just did not look good. So Croix took her to like the the children's hospital basically the little satellite children's hospital and Kaya was diagnosed with the flu. And I was like. Are you kidding me like Brown? I have had the flu as kids. I've never had it like so that kind of freaked me out and then so they didn't believe in Tamiflu or whatever and I just had read an article about a mother who lost her four year old who had the flu and she was trying to do like homeopathic stuff. So children's didn't give Kaya Tamiflu they said unless you're like chew and under or like what was over something like sixty sixty five or you're around somebody who has a compromised immune system or a very very elderly Or very very young. They could obviously transmit the flu to then. They want to short duration of symptoms and contagious. Snus of it right so they didn't fit any of those categories. So I called my pediatrician. Dr Kahn who I've been with for like twenty twenty one years since Brielle was too and I love her. I respect her. I he'd Oliver Advice and so I called her and was like hey. I don't feel right about this like I actually really think she needs Tamiflu. Like she's in really bad shape. She hadn't even for twenty four hours. Her fevers were Pretty High. Putting on the bath which is what they recommend to do to. They said follow up with your pediatrician in the morning. Yeah sure that right. I love children. The greatest thing on earth. They're amazing here in Georgia so she called in Tamiflu for Kaya and that was that well by the time we had shit called it in and we had picked it up. There was basically Monday morning right right. It was Monday morning so now. It's Cain one hundred four to come up with bright red cheeks. Oh yeah like a red tomato and his eyes are just like puffy. It looks like a Zombie Walk Stairs. Katie okay I'm good. I'm good and he's not he literally and then you see them. Kinda start to get like a tough one. He never want anybody to know. I guess they're all like well. What's the matter? And then he breaks down crying. I'm like Oh my God buddy really hundred four. He's like well. Let's get some tylenol. We've got medicine for that. And Okay you know and so I called Dr Khan and I knew it because these two are never apart in fact came was laying on Kia's chest like in watching some movie together Just the day before so I knew that came as well so I picked up a Tamiflu for both. The kids gave them their first does Kyle kind of turned around pretty quickly. Just with like that dough. She still was dragging. Ask Kane not so much He he's been the tough one We been in the bathtub at three o'clock in the morning. And we've been getting up every two hours to check his temperature and it's been a fun ride in the Bearman so I'm GonNa tell you about the thing that really really helped But listen as a mom. I know people on the fence about Tamiflu. They don't give it They believe in it. They don't believe in it. Here's the thing about this right. The side effects to me weren't as severe as kind of the situation. These kids were in so we opted to give it to him. Well here's the. Here's the kicker to so because candidate any of those categories which is fine don't don't Don't necessarily have to give it to them. But it's an option and it's a virus so unlike a bacteria where if you're given antibiotics need to finish the entire antibiotics that you kill that bacteria that doesn't become a superbug and all those things the virus your body has to fight it. This is just going to help it. So if you give the child or the person does of Tamiflu and they have a side effect get throw up or they get the extreme diarrhea or they get the hallucination thin you can you don't have to give it to him you just. They'll they'll those symptoms subsided though no longer had the diarrhea no longer keep throwing up right. It's just that they're going to have to go on their own and not have some help with Tamiflu. Here's five five hundred and they just turned six but Kia's literally a bag of bones like she's so tiny and canes not he's definitely much bigger than her but or weighs more than her but I'm just a mom you know so the lady lost. Her child unfortunately tried that. Homeopathic method and lost her four year old. So I just read that like last week so I mentioned that to my doctor. She's like yeah. I saw that too so anyways I'm a mom and others mom police out there and stuff but that's a decision that we made in. They're doing really really well. No side effects. No side effects. Thank God And we'll be talking the golden nuggets going to be the savior of the flu and high fevers. But we'll get into that in a minute okay. You Guys Mohegan. Sun was so much fun in Connecticut. Cold very cold like it was no no no no no no no. You're you're being ridiculous. I- I landed at Bradley International Airport which is actually the town that I grew up in so he stopped by McDonald's which was my first job subway and a couple of places I've yet to post because it had a face lift the face lift up. I don't know if you're from the north in you know what friendly's is and did they not have and I don't even like ice cream the peanut Butter Cup Sundays and the best Mozzarella sticks ever so we went to friendly's I took a picture for Tracy because she loves that place to trying to me to bring friendliest down here. I I have a drive there now and second their menus exactly the same same so you can also go in and sit down that place. There was standing room only in that place. Like I swear to you and so we went through the drive through in their Mozzarella sticks. Were just like I remember it. Just a mini version. They were out of this World Croix. Try It try it. Try it like you have to try these their ice cream so I realized once I ordered the Sunday that all I would ever eat anyway so it was pretty much the peanut butter and the chocolate. So go Peter Butter chocolate. I was so happy and so then I stopped by. Oh my little places that I worked. I've worked at every fast food restaurant like back then that ever existed so including Taco bell which. I didn't stop back. That was in a different town. But and then I drove by my childhood home and took a picture in my parents house like in tiptop shape and it was like perfect like you could eat off the floors. Every little Kern was perfect. I realized where I get like my. Ocd stuff with the house and all that my mom was definitely into that. Now it's kind of run down like shits fallen off and it's like down so anyways I stopped by to see my uncle. Fred and I didn't tell him I was coming. So he's not. He's not blood related to me. I grew up with his daughter Melissa and their last name starts with the Zine. It's very close associate. Which is kind of funny but I grew up with his daughter Melissa and they just like my parents they were like Super Fun and super cool and I don't know I always love them and so last time when I was in Connecticut I stopped to see them and they knew that was coming. And we've talked my aunt. Debbie is a registered nurse at Saint Francis Hospital. I think she runs the whole floor and Shit Shebang. She's Super Smart. So during my stroke and that we talked a lot and they helped me kind of make decisions and all that good stuff so anyways. I said you know what let's stop. Let's stop by so I had a little bit of time before we had to get to my appearance at the Casino and so we drove on. It looked pretty dark and I was like Damn. They're not here and so then Knocked on the door rang. The doorbell ahead Croix kind of filming to the side. But we didn't get his voice in his real reaction. I should've had Nikki or somebody do that was with me but anyways he comes to the door and he's like no way he's just starts freaking out of course crying he's like the sweetest person ever. We must have hugged ten times standing there. Talking took some pictures together and he gave me Russell Stover's a big heart the set. I love you on it and I don't know I miss. I MISS THE PEOPLE. I feel like up north. That are just that I grew up with and then I. I don't know it's a feeling I don't want to move back there. I feel like it looks really dreary but Atlanta's not much better right now but yeah I just like the people there I I definitely like fit in with the North for you know like I'm definitely from the north. The the Ford is tossed around. Like it's like hello like got your luggage in your car. You might help you know. It's kind of that kind of thing so down here in the south. It's like skirt. Don't say that after decades making our name as a nation's leading carry out only pizza chain. Little CAESARS is proud to announce its latest venture delivery for years customers.

Only delivery fees apply so anyways that was really really sweet and I asked him which is going to pertain to the rest of our podcast continuing from last week. What is your secret to marriage? I think he said next month. It'll be forty years that him and Debbie have married. He said you know she's my. He was smiling. So big. You guys you know she's my best friend. She's she's everything she's my best friend. He says she's so funny. He's like you know what just laugh. I said okay. Well I'M GONNA say that in my podcast and he said Yeah. I'm serious. Make sure you you know you laugh and you have fun together. That's really really important. That's like the most important so that was kind of cute. And then I headed off to Mohegan Sun and that was really really great Our Security Guy. Brian was like the bomb and so he was chloe chloe crashing and security guy too and I do feel like clothing are twins for sure but He was saying some things. It's just we're very similar so I sent her a picture to which was kind of funny that we both had the same kind of team or this. This guy is like the head guy so he doesn't always do you know he doesn't always do said. Oh an appearance. Yeah right right right or does an event at the I guess their stadium or their Rena that they have there he is. He's worked side by side with those people right so we did our appearance and he's definitely built for the job to now. He's so frigging Nice. I just love. Well let me just say guys. I'd been drinking wine kind of between my stops and stuff and then went to the casino and as soon as I got there like I can't stay. I love the casino. So very much and trying to cry can't relate like he just can't so as soon as I don't WanNa talk to anybody. I don't WanNa see anybody. I just want to get to the slot machine and so it's been a minute since I've gambled So I played. I hit pretty quickly. I was like I love those top dollar machines. You guys hit top dollar pretty quickly anyways. Having a grand old time drinking wine having a great time so by the time I had to go upstairs and Redo my makeup and like get ready for my appearance at ten thirty PM. I was like Woo. I'm definitely a little tipsy. I was like I need some food. Who Yeah Nicky. Think she's funny. She made a video of me. I guess like Nikki was right in front of me and Mike Nick. She's like I'm right here. I'm like where's your now. She's like doing your makeup right now. Sweetie my kitchen allen here so yeah anyways it was great. I remember them pulling my nylons on me like Corey N. Nikki like address and got my got me dress. I took my wake off my head curled on the mannequin. Put it back on June now. Didn't even read my whole fan and then I was pretty much sober when I went to the club. I did a couple of shots with fans and And that was it. It was really really fun. The lady who does like kind of all the events in books the talent and that kind of thing for you know Mohegan Sun and other places was really really cool. She has a five month old baby and I just want to like steel him. He's so cute So I kind of hung out with her and she chatted and I. I don't know we just had a really good time. And so after that back to the Casino. I go like come on. That's obvious right. So Craig Drinking in the club. Yeah you've been drinking hot. Have in the club or whatever and so we get to the slot machines and I give Nikki some money on like just go play like get lost. 'cause like let's go get chain cleaned up or whatever because I don't like to gamble either with a lot of people around me. I just like it to be in my own space and even usually when a half security I don't even really have them directly behind me because I do believe in energy and putting everything out there and and into the machine so nicky kinda laughed laughed and then guess what Cory Falls Asleep so crazy snoring and I can call Brian. Right now like I was resting my eyes. Okay well so I'm gambling by myself. I'm winning I'm up by yourself. I'm definitely watching over. You know you're not Brian Okay. Well no you're not yes so I wanNA gamble you guys. If you WANNA gamble you guys Mohegan Sun in Connecticut is the move. I have always one. They're always so I kicked ass you guys and then my one machine wasn't taking money to come and take the whole money thing out and fix it so. I hopped over to this other section at left in the chair with with the With Brian our security and so I'm playing my machine and Koi kind of stumbles over. I'm like Oh what are you doing? He gets in the chair next to me and he's out. I'm like open your eyes. Look at my machine. You're giving me good luck. And every time he opened his eyes I'd hit. I'm like open your eyes. And so he's eye joe show showcasing. Just forget it so anyways by five thirty in the morning flies thirty all I'm Exhau- so she's making fun of me for resting is it's it's one o'clock in the morning five thirty. Am kayakers up here with their mask on laughing her off and I had we had. We had flown. We had driven across town. We had driven the Mohegan. We had gambled weakens in a row. We were in Arizona so we were like running on empty. I know so. She starts her night at close to twelve. And she's begging me for how I now. Is this shrinking water? You guys. I don't know how I made it up the stairs and then when I got to the room Craig. It's in the bed and just gets into bed on my my pays. He's like Ono. I'm like usually he has laid out now. No sure didn't so I'm like wanted to cry. I've got bill so bad and it'd be like swallowing razor blades. It was terrible you guys. I know you've been there and had nights like this so I climbed in the bed and we were out like ally and then I got up and wasn't really motivated to go gambling. Because I'm I'm up. I'm happy about it saying good job so all of a sudden I have. I have to go gamble and craze like dude. What I'm like. Yeah I've got to go gamble downstairs like right now. So let's pack up the room right now is like all right so everybody kind of was like group effort. Nikki was kind of helping and Croix and so we were packing up. And then he's I said we're going in the sauce. I'll just see you there like I had to go to the slots I'd have no well. I had I have an idea. Why so I head down this loss with Brian this security and it's like to me the longest walk in history like I just. I want the slot like right in front of me like it was a far walk so I sit down and playing my machine and so I'm I'm not a huge risk taker in gambling meaning when I hit a slot machine. And like if it's top dollar if you guys don't know what top dollar is you play whatever. Say you're paying ten dollars right and you have to do to so it'd be twenty dollars or whatever I do hundred dollar slots or whatever you guys. Because I'm not so two hundred dollars a spin so I hit it and I get pretty like maybe six or eight spins in no. I started to get a little irritated. Like maybe ten and then it hits top dollar and I'm like what does the bonus which is a bonus feature which means you're guaranteed to win money right now no matter what and so they give you four offers. You can take the offer the first one or you can take the second one the third one you so you know you have four offers that you can decide on and they're going to be all different amounts and you don't know what if you don't know what the amounts are gonNA be right. They only show you the first decline. It you can't go back to the first you have to either take the second move on right and so that makes me fucking nervous because like it's never ten thousand twenty thousand or something like that you know so it was like thirty five hundred which. I'm pretty hit thirty five hundred a few times now. Don't get too excited. You guys because it takes money to gamble. It takes money to play so it wasn't like I just hit thirty five hundred and I'm up thirty five hundred dollars and get thirty five hundred but I'm definitely up but I'm very happy about it so so I get top dollar. I offer thirty five hundred now. My Brian because we was Brian and I remember the night before. Cas Corey was asleep at the slots. It was Brian. I and I was totally Brian. And then Corey and he's he's good. I'm like who is kind of like kind of like a little joke and we'd have to be quiet. The machines are loud. He's like Oh man. I'm like I know so thirty. Five hundred look. Brian and I'm like no. I'm not feeling it so I hit the second offer. And it was fifteen hundred twenty. Four twenty five hundred. I hit the third offer and it was fifteen hundred and like fuck. Yeah like Oh God. I'm taking that thirty five hundred but at this point I'm already up and I'm so happy and I just I love being back home that I'm like let's just take let's go for it. I very rarely do this. And you guys it so it drops trick the citric acid. Drop two thousand dollars down the Times to drop two thousand and I was like Oh. We couldn't get any worse. We had dropped the whole thing but then all of a sudden it dropped his little multiplayer times two times. Five thousand dollars screaming through the fucking like an idiot. Everybody's watching and so that was just put me in a great mood so then I hop over to this machine that I had one on the night before you guys. I was just ask believe I was down to my last three hundred dollars to gamble with okay brought the cash brought. And I don't have a line of credit or marker or whatever they're at Mohegan and so I put in two hundred ours and I'm like crazy gonNA wake up and I'm like dude. Yeah money's Gone Campbell that away you gotta go to bed. Yeah I guess so. I'm like man I sa- calling all angels calling. All Angels Spun and hit like over twenty which gave me my money back that I brought and ten march so I was so stoked about the fact that at least have money back that I was at this point. Like you know Let's I think that's what we ended up going to bed right or shortly thereafter the night before so I went back down to this machine that I played in my money back in that one spin and I see somebody one triple seven's the white triple seven's which was which was two thousand dollars and like man so this machine has a dice on the right hand side you can get a six a five a four three or two or you want to six or five if you get a four yet another spin and it could be a six or five but six you get a bonus so you're guaranteed it's like top dollar guaranteed to get a number from the screen and the numbers range anywhere from like a thousand dollars to one hundred thousand dollars so a long story short. I put my money in. It's expensive spin my gonNa tell you what it is. Okay don't tell me I'm not telling you so it's expensive so I said should I do it because it was on the six from the day before that I want on and I'm like you know what they're not really listening to me. They're talking about something and I'm like fuck it and I hit the button and I got it and I won and I think he got thirty five hundred which was like the number of the night the number of the day before so I got thirty five hundred then I said I the funny thing about this machine is a two hundred dollar spin and so I put my two hundred dollars in and usually you just hit maximum. That's all I'm used to doing Max Max Bat. Well this machine you have to bet one credit better than other credit and then hit spin because the machines messed up so the whole time that I was the six was going on like tapping the Max bet and like piss off. This machine will not tune. They won't do anything. So Mike you dumb ass so I do one credit credit and spent hits a big jackpot. You guys like it was my first spin the I am like growing like. I'm just so excited is a really great feeling when you went because you know what we have a one in a very long time so I love to start twenty twenty off this way but again you guys. I was at Mohegan when Brielle was was six. Oh Prieto was like five and I won a ton of money to so and then before that I was gambling a little bit not legal Lee and I would win So and then I have to put it back because how can acclaimed but anyway so Mohicans. The Jam it was really really fun and We had a really really great time but we came home pretty sleepy and like hurting from alcohol. So we got. Mcdonald's the cure all French fries and sweet and sour sauce are The move you guys so on a side. Note this teacher that I told you guys about at fusion artistry that stopped in at the when. I was getting my eyebrows done. She like Kinda ran through the front desk operator lady and ran back to me and was like. I'm a huge fan. Oh my God I saw your snap and I didn't even believe you were here. I just can't believe it. She was really really sweet. And so I totally if you want to get your eyebrows down on me so she was deeming me when I was on the plane actually and what I win. We all win this kind of how I feel and so she happened to me. And she's like I really WanNa get my let me know and so ideas my texts micro with the eyebrows and she gave me a discount and I bought this teacher her eyebrows and she was like so excited. I'm so thankful for teachers. And all that you guys do and so this was just a fun way to kind of give back which I thought was really cool so when you do win in anything in life share it with others. That's what you're supposed to do is not just all in essence for you. We win every day. Do you have a bunch of stuff lying around the house? You just.

Changed my life This is from a girl by the name of Jessica I came across. I'm Jessica and I'm a junior in college at Uga. So right down the road from y'all have been. I've been sitting on this for a while but I decided to let you know. Just how much your podcast has really helped me move forward in my life. I've been fans of Y'all for a long time and I've been listening to the podcast since it started but I never thought that it would make such a big impact in two thousand eighteen. I had one of the hardest years of my life. I was put through multiple family emergencies faced a lot of rejection as well as experienced a terrible living situation. That caused me to take legal action. I was so defeated and felt like everything was falling apart. That's when I really started to practice the positive mentality and quote ask believe receive unquote model that you preach. I swear I swear once. I made that conscious effort to change my mindset. Everything I'M GONNA lifestyle. Ask THE PLACE. That's key right. There conscious effort. It started small with things like getting parking spaces then things just started to work themselves out and I even found myself in situations of abundance that I never thought I would be in just in the past couple of months. I've been able to pay off a lot of my debt. Found a new place to live. Got A new job with managers that I love got my first semesters I a master of straight as and even lined up a prestigious internship in California. I am so so glad that I listened to your podcast. Found the power of manifest manifestation. I know there is still so much more to come. That's key right there too. I don't ever think that there's not more there's always more. It can be a really fun for you guys to to like just try something like I said parking space or something simple and just kind of you know test it to see how the small things because a lot of times people don't believe in the big things and when you start to see the small things happen you're like and so ask for bigger better and more exactly another key point here in the sentence. But I'm so grateful for where I am today and I really attribute it to the things I learned from. Y'All the keyword. There's grateful you have to be grateful for the baby and everything that you're going to get in the future so from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for everything that you do have a great rest of your day and I hope the family as well. Thanks Jessica. Thank you for taking the time to write that. That's really sweet of you Jessica. And that's really exciting news and you know you could have just kept getting you know kind of going more and more down in the dark hole and you didn't you kind of realize like enough is enough. How can I change this? And once you do. Change your mind frame and consciously make that decision. Your Life will completely change. I know that people say like it's not that easy or you know people kind of have this mind frame. I promise you on my life. I've been there in my life that it really is. It's an attitude of gratitude. It's also attitude graduates big one but it's also like sharing and giving to others which you get out what you give out in this world you get back double and I don't mean that by like if you give somebody ten you're going to get twenty. I mean in in a sense of what you give out in this world like you genuinely give from your heart it will come back to you tenfold as just the law of attraction and the way that it works so for anybody listening out there. That's like Oh it's easy for Cam. Because she has you know six kids and her husband and television show Blah Blah Blah. It wasn't always easy everything. I wrote this in my post on Instagram Post. I remember sitting in my house that I post in and writing in my journal that I would have my own. Tv show. By the time. I was like I wholeheartedly wrote that. Nobody was even like I didn't want to be an actress though but I didn't care at that point. I didn't know that I didn't want to be an actress to a little bit later on but I wrote in my journal. My mom has it but so I wish I didn't but whatever And so I wrote that in my journal and I started on. House is at twenty nine and I got my own show or my family show at thirty three. And I'm just a small town girl from Windsor Locks Connecticut when we got our rent a car cry and we're pulling out with our rent a car the guy at the gate. This young probably twenty five are you. Don't be tardy. The cracks down here in Windsor lies. Man I grew up here. It is like really so I hope my post gave everybody a little a little hope and and like chase your dreams. You're only here for a very short limited time in some. I didn't know how the Hell I was. GonNa get here. I had no idea how it ended up on TV. And real housewives of Atlanta is the first television show ever at Georgia. So how about that like? It's bananas like there was nothing going on. Atlanta's if you want to be an actress and you want to be on. Tv You go to New York to La why went to Atlanta and was like. I don't know how I don't know how I'm going to do this. But I want this so bad and while I got it so I thank you for your email. That was amazing. And now you guys if you listened last week a continuation This week fifteen hundred people give all their relationship advice you will ever ever need. Pepsi Cola has always been a product that invokes enjoyment and in spite of the judgement that can now accompany its consumption. It is and has always been refreshingly delicious indulgence. We believe the most enjoyable life is one. That's free from constraints create moments of unapologetic enjoyment. Like no one's and nothing is holding you back. You are free free to do what you love. Not What you should celebrate out loud when your team scores a touchdown even if the whole stadium. Here's you watch the fifth straight episode of Net flicks. Even if you should be getting dressed to start your dance dance with the band at your neighborhood birthday party. Even if you're the only one belt out your favorite song with the car windows down especially when stuck in traffic be you. Don't hold back as being true to yourself will enable you to live your best possible life be free from judgment and full of joy live every day confidently fearlessly bull on Pepsi. That's what I like. Okay you guys. So now we're onto you and your partner will grow and change in unexpected ways. Embrace it over the course of twenty years. We've both changed tremendously. We have chain faith face political parties numerous haircutters and styles but we love each other and possibly even more than we once did our grandkids. Consular friends hopeless. Romantic CR and the biggest thing the case. Oh strongest not giving us about what anyone else has to say about our relationship. We definitely don't give. We definitely do one thing. That came up repeatedly especially those Mary. Twenty plus years was how much each individual changes a decades roll-on and how ready you are to embrace those changes. I need to embrace change. I'm not a big fan of it but anyway one reader commented that enter winning an elderly family member told her one day many years from now you'll wake up and your spouse be a different person. Make sure you fall in love with that person to. That's cute it. Follows that if there is bedrock of respect for each individual's interest values undermining our underpinning now undermine start making stuff underpinning the relationship and each individual's encouraged to foster their own growth and development that each person will as time goes on evolve in different unexpected ways. It is then up to the couple to communicate and make sure that they are constantly aware of the changes going on in their partner and by continuously accepting and respecting OJ. Those changes occur. Think that's hard for people. Yeah I do I. I don't know that that's such an easy one but when you can like I think it has to get bad before it gets worse. Basically for people to realize okay They're changing a little. Bit like my okay with. Yeah it's like I feel like it's so easy to just kind of throw in the towel and I think to those if somebody's changing without necessarily like an extreme example it'd be let's say when you met the person you got married that they were Headstrong worker and they came home. They were family oriented and then all of a sudden they just go from that extreme too like wanting to go out with their buddies and in the nightclub every night and I I tell you to fuck off right like that type of changes right right. That type of change is not referring to know and it's not It's it's a change. That's not based off of a partnership as a change based off of somebody being selfish. I think right. Because it's not going to be conducive to a marriage and put that marriage in a place of being able to flourish so that's relative. I feel like that changes Rela Right. It says not talking about the small south. I'm talking some pretty serious life changes. Remember if you're going to spend decades together some really heavy will end. Break the fan. Among other major life changes people told me their marriages went through and survived. Were changing religions. Moving countries death family members including children supporting elderly family members changing political beliefs even changing sexual orientation and in a couple cases. Relining gender identification. How does your marriage survive changing sexual orientation? I'm so confused okay. All right well okay. Amazing these couple of because respect for each other allow them to adapt and allow each person continued to flourish and grow when you commit to someone. You don't actually know who you're committing to you know who they are today but you have no idea who this person is going to be in five years ten years you have to be prepared for the unexpected and truly ask yourself if you admire this person regardless of the superficial not so superficial details because I promise almost all of those details at some point. We're going to change one way or another. That's Michael be open to. The amount of change isn't easy. Of course in fact it'll be downright soul destroying at times and that is why we need to make sure you and your partner how to fight. Eight. Get good at fighting. The relationship is a living breathing thing much like a body and muscles. It cannot strong without stress and challenge. You have to fight you have to hash things out. Obstacles make the marriage. John Godman is a hot shit psychologist and researcher who spent over thirty years analyzing married couples looking for keys to why they stick together and why they break up in fact when it comes to. Why do people stick together? He dominates the field. What common does in his get in is get start. The hell what Godman does is. He gets married couples in a room. Put some cameras on them and then he asked them to have a fight notice. He doesn't have someone to talk about. How great the other person is. He doesn't ask them what they like. Best about the relationship. He asked him to fight. They're told to pick some having a problem with and talk about on camera common. Then analyzes the couple's discussion or shouting matches able to predict with startling accuracy. Whether or not the couple of divorce but what's most interesting about God's got researchers at the things that lead to divorce are not necessarily what you might imagine. He found that successful couples like unsuccessful. Couples fight constantly and some of them fight furiously. Communism able to narrow down four characteristics of couples at tend to lead to divorce or breakup he has gone on called the four horsemen of the relationships clip apocalypse. Sorry apocalypse and his books one. Criticizing your partner's character. You're stupid versus that thing. You did was stupid. Defensiveness or basically blame shifting. I wouldn't have done that but if if you weren't late at all all the time with a defensiveness for basically blame shifting. I wouldn't have done that if you weren't laid all the time. Three contempt putting down your partner making them feel inferior for stonewalling withdrawing from an argument ignoring your partner the reader emails. You all sent back the reader emails. Y'All sent back this up as well Obama's up as well I was reading it wrong back this up as well. Out of the fifteen hundred. I received almost every single one reference. The importance of dealing well with conflict advice given by readers include never saw her name call. Your partner put put another way hate. The sand loved the center. Commons research found that contempt. Belittling and demeaning is the number one predictor of divorce. Do not bring previous fights or arguments in the current one. This solves nothing and just makes if I twice as bad. You forgot to pick up groceries on the way home. But what does that really mean being? Rucci your mother last Thanksgiving or being Ruchir mother last Thanksgiving have to do with it or anything else if things get too heated. Take a breather. Remove yourself from the situation and come back once. Emotions have cooled off. This is a big one for me personally. Sometimes when things get intense with my wife I get overwhelmed and I just leave. I usually walk around the block two or three times. Let myself seed for a minute. Then I come back and we're both a bit. Calmer we can resume in discussion with a better tone. Remember that being right is not as important as both people feeling respected in her. You may well be right but if you're right in such a way that makes your partner feel in love. There's no winner. I'm always right by the way right crane but all of this takes takes for granted another important point the willingness to fight in the first place when people talk about the necessity for good communication all time. This is what they should mean. Willing to have uncomfortable talks be willing to have fights say the ugly things and get it on the open. This is a constant theme from divorce. Rates dozen had more or less the same sad story to tell but there's no way on God's green at this is her fault alone. There were times when I saw huge red flags instead of trying to figure out what in the world was wrong. I just plowed ahead. I'll buy more flowers or candies or do more chores around the House I was a quote unquote good husband and every sense of the word but what I wasn't doing this paying attention to the right things and instead of saying something. I ignored all the signals as we told you last week. We are so excited that our show is now available to stream free on spotify if you haven't tried listening there yet.

No I'm working progress. You can be right and be quite at the same time your partner already know you're right and we'll feel love knowing that you didn't wield a bastard sword. That's Brian in. Marriage is no such thing as winning an argument. That's from Bill. Perhaps the most interesting nugget from goblins research is the fact that most successful couples don't actually resolve all their problems. In fact fines were completely backwards from what people actually expect. People in lasting and happening relationships have problems at never go away while couples that feel as though they need to agree and compromise on everything end up feeling miserable and falling apart. This comes back to the respecting if you have two different individuals sharing a life together. It's inevitable that they will have different values and perspective on some things in class over them. The key is not to change the other person as the desire to change. Your partner is inherently disrespectful to both them and yourself but rather it's assembly abide by the differences loved it despite it and when things get a little rough around the edges to forgive them for everyone says it compromises key. But that's not how my husband and I see it's more about seeking understanding compromises bullshit because at least both sides unsatisfied. Losing little pieces of themselves in effort to get along on the other hand refusing to compromise is just as much as a disaster. Because you turn your partner and to a competitor. I win you lose. These are the wrong goals because they they are outcomes based rather than process-based when your goal is to find out where your partner's coming from to truly understand on a deep level. You can't help but be altered by the process. Conflict becomes much easier to navigate because you see the context says Michelle. But I think if like you're partners dishonest that you can't communicate effectively in in like trust that person's answers I think there's things that kind of come in context with all of these things. I think. These are all great if it just pertains to the fact that he doesn't like to do the dishes and sits on the couch after work and drinks beer like I think. There's you know can be underlining maybe things but let me. Just keep going you know. I've written regular that. The key to happiness is not achieving. Your lofty dreams experiencing dizzy in high but rather finding the struggles and challenges. That you enjoy you enjoy during. It's the same in relationships. Your perfect partner is not someone who has no problems in the relationship. Rather your perfect partner has problems that you feel good about dealing with but how do you get good at forgiveness? What does that actually mean? Here's what the readers had to say. When an argument is over it's over. That's tough for me. I don't forget some couples one. Is I make this golden rule in their relationship. When you're done finding it doesn't matter who's right and who's wrong. It doesn't matter if someone was Nice. It's over and you both have to agree to leave it there and not bringing up every month for the next one. Hundred Years God. I don't know if there's no scoreboard. No one's trying to end. Yes I am. I'm trying to win. There's no you owe me this because you screwed up the laundry last week. There's no I am right about financial stuff so you should listen to me. There's no I bought her three gifts and she did me one favor. Everything in relationships should be given unconditionally. That is without expectation of reward manipulation feelings. I don't like a scorecard to like. That's like the you know. I want you three gifts. You only give me one favor or you did laundry last week. I don't like a scorecard. I think that that's definitely like you're headed for disaster. When you're like you know what I took the dog out three times yesterday. That should definitely I think where somebody maybe get to a point. If they're keeping a scorecard is because the other partners not participating dissipating right Yeah so they so they started out giving unconditionally whether it was chores or gifts or love or affection or touch time all those things they gave those unconditionally but then all of a sudden they realize like come not getting anything back there that my partner taking taking taking Taylor's givers and takers right near like but you never know. Maybe they're exhausted. Maybe there so there's always listen. This is just kind of the foundation of things but you know I feel like people that have been married avert much longer than two years five years ten years. Even this can all apply it sounds Hunky Dory but not every situations the same so and this is interesting here when your partner screws up you separate the intentions from the behavior you recognize the things you love and admire and your partner understand that he or she was simply doing the best that they could get messed up out of ignorance. This happened not because they're bad person not because they see really hit. You want a divorce. Not because there's somebody else in the background pulling them away from you they are a good person that Wa. That's why you're with them. If ever lose faith in their goodness then you will begin to erode your faith in yourself and finally pick your battles wisely you and your partner only have so many to give many make sure you both are saving them for the real things that really truly matter been happily married forty years over one piece of advice that comes to mind. Choose your battles. Some things are worth getting upset over most. Do not argue over a little things and you find yourself arguing endlessly a little things pop up all day long. It takes a toll overtime late. Chinese water torture minor in the short term corrosive overtime consider. Is this little thing or big thing. Is it worth the cost of arguing? Fred wonderful it's uncle frame. Little things add up to big things. If you don't take the time to meet for launch go for a walk out to dinner. A movie with some regularity. Then you're basically ending up with a roommate staying connected through life's ups and downs critical. Eventually your kids grow up. You're noxious brother-in-law Bas- basically goes away and your parents will die when that happens. Guess WHO's left. You got it Mr or Mrs Right. You don't WanNa wake up in twenty years and be steering stranger because like Brooke Davonte form before the storm started. That's Dope Brian. I think that's very very true. That's something happening here lately. Because of the flu many responses I got we get up at different times with the alarm like every two hours. It's quite fun. I'd say about half of them mentioned one simple but effective piece of advice. Don't ever stop doing the little things they add up like. I'm big on this like I tell Corey like oh this guy was so sweet what he did for Brazicki so thoughtful so I like people that are awful. It's kind of like running joke between us but I think if you really pay attention to somebody then they see that they feel. It's not just like I duNno I. It's like the little things that really matter to them or you know but it's tough. Sometimes you got to take a step back you get so in your children in the house and your jobs at like the little things like not going out to Valentine's Day because you're just exalt we didn't go to dinner. We Gable. I was totally fine with that. You're still taking me to dinner. But how about your dinner because we did what you wanted to do amount. No but it's the girls holiday remember we we TVD.

Don't ever stop doing. Yeah the little things. Things are as simple as saying. I love you before you go to bed holding hands during movie doing favors here. And they're helping with household chores even cleaning up accidentally on the toilets. Thank you cry for always doing that. It's the dog that drinks out of the toilet bowl that leaves the slobber. He can't clean himself up. He's a mess seriously. Someone said that actually peeing on the twisty my husband. Does it every time what clean time? Oh you're always clean wiping it no matter what I think the thing cage as into it cash doesn't give two shits and Kane aims perfectly every time it's bizarre Anyhow things that matter and they all add up over the long run the same way Fred married for forty plus a year so that arguing over small things constantly whereas you down this becomes particularly important once kids enter the picture. The Big Message. I heard hundreds of times about kids was put your marriage. I my mom and Dad taught me. This puts your marriage. First Brielle Arianna were so pissed off when I told them this. Because if you don't have a solid foundation the solid solid marriage you cannot be a great parent. Period chosen are worshipped in our culture. Parents are expected to be sacrificed everything for them but the best way to raise half healthy happy kids is to maintain a healthy and happy marriage. Good kids don't make a good marriage. Good marriage makes good kids. So keep your merits a top priority. One hundred percent agree. I knew my marriage. My parents marriage was a top priority over me and my brother. There was no question in my mind. How about Ukraine? Nope no I wouldn't. Readers were consistent about maintaining regular date nights planning weekend getaways and making time for sex. Even when you're tired even when you're stressed and exhausted in the baby's crying even junior has a soccer practice at five thirty the next day make time for. It's worth eleven. Be Practical and create relationship rules. There's no fifty fifty and house cleaning child rearing vacation planning dishwasher emptying gift buying dinner making money. The sooner everyone accepts that the happier everyone is. We all have things we like to do and hate to do. We all have things. We are good at not so good at talk to your partner about those things. But it comes a dividing and conquering all the crap that has to get on life. I don't think we have that at all. It's just is what it is every day changes like dogs. The dogs like the job gets done. But you know what the problem is with crime? Is that like so? Of course is really tired in the bed in the morning. I'm like oh I'll take the kids. Can you know Daddy's Home Daddy? God No can't go without and I'm like for God's sakes so the boys breakout. Thanks for sticking by me girl but things like that like tonight. Cash is putting legos together and all my cash will have no doubt. You're not going to understand it so Most people have an image in their mind about our relationship work for many that people share responsibilities. Manage both managed a finely balanced our time together with the time for themselves pursuing engaging in figuring interest on their own and then share the benefits together. Both take turns cleaned the toilet and blowing each other and cooking gourmet lasagna for the extended. Thanksgiving hopefully not all at the same time. Then there's how relationships actually should work caddick stressful miscommunication flying ever us. That both feels. Oh your state of talking to the wall. The fact is relationships are imperfect messy affairs and it's for the simple reason that their comp compromise of imperfect messy people people who want different things at different times in different ways. The common theme of advice about the logistics of running a relationship was pragmatic if the wife is a lawyer and spend fifty hours at the office every week and the husband is an artist and can work from home. Oh stays it makes more sense for him to handle most of the day today. Parenting duties if the wife standard of cleanliness makes a home and Garden Cadillac. Look like a novel and the husband has gone six months without even noticing the light fixture hanging from the ceiling and then it makes sense at the hands. More of the home cleaning duties. Division of Labor makes everyone better off figure out what you are each good at what you each love and hate doing an arranged accordingly. My wife loves cleaning no seriously but she hates smelly stuff so guess who gets dishes and garbage duty. I don't give A. I'll eat off the same place several times in a row. I could smell a dead rat even if it was sleeping on my pillow on top of that many couples adjusted laying out rules for the relationships more generally to what degree we share finances. How much debt will you take payoff? How much can each person's spam without consulting the other? What purchases we done together or do you trust each other shop separately. How do you decide which vacations to go on having meetings about this stuff? Sure is not sexy or Colbert needs to get down your sharing a life together. She needed plan account for each other's needs and resources one person even said she and her husband have an annual review every year. She immediately told me not to lap a seriously. The couple has annual over. Ucla discussed everything. That's going on the house when they can do in the coming here to change things I don't even if he thinks this sort of thing. Sounds lame what keeps a couple of in touch with each other and because they always have their fingers on the pulse of each other's needs they're more likely to grow together rather than grow apart. Twelve is learned to ride the waves. I've been married for forty four years. Four children and six grandchildren. I think the most important thing that I've learned in those years. Is that you that the love you feel is constantly changing. Sometimes you feel deep Levin Satisfaction illegitimate. You want nothing to do with your spouse. Sometimes you laugh together. Sometimes you're screaming. It's like a roller coaster. Ride up and down all the time but as us as you stay together long enough. The downs become less severe on the more loving and content. So even if you feel like you could never love your partner anymore. That can change if you give it a chance. I think people give up too soon. You need the kind of person that you want your spouse to be when you do that. It makes a world of difference out of one hundred emails that I received one stuck with me. A nurse wrote to me to say that she used to work with a lot of geriatric patients patients. One day she was talking to a man in his late eighties about marriage and why his head lasted so long. I used to do this to all the time I loved it. This Guy James Gross was my patient and he would smoke cigarettes and I would too and we would just chitty chat about life and he was amazing but he loved women so And that was a seventeen years ago. He said his relationship is this exists as waves. People need to learn how to ride them. The old man went on to say that just like the ocean their constant waves of emotion going on within relationships. Some waves last hour some last for months or even years the key to success to understand the few of those ways have nothing to do with the quality of the relationship. People's lose lose jobs. Family die couples relocate switch careers. Make a lot of money to lose a lot of money in your job as a committed partner simply ride the wave with the person you love regardless of where you go because ultimately none of these waves last and you simply end up with each other. Two years ago I suddenly began resenting my wife number of reasons. I felt as if we were floating along doing a great job of coexisting co-parenting but not sustaining rail connection. It's to the point that I considered separating from her however whenever he gave the matter intense thought I could not a single issue. That was a dealbreaker. I knew her to be an amazing person mother and friend. I bit my tongue law and held out. Hope that basically this pass and suddenly it had arrived. Fortunately it did and I love her more than ever. So the final bit of wisdom is to afford your spouse the benefit of the doubt. If you've been happy for such a long period that is a case for good reason be patient and focus on many aspects of still exist that caused you to fall in love in the first place. I like to take a moment to thank all. My readers. Took the time to write something and send. Something always humbling to see the wisdom in life experiences out there. There are many many. Many excellent response is filled with kind heartfelt advice. It was hard to choose the ones that ended up here. In many cases I could've put a dozen different quotes that said almost the same exact thing which I think is really really cool. Exercise like this amaze me because when you ask thousands of people for advice on something you expect to receive thousands of different answers. But I've done this on another subject. And in both cases the vast majority of devices largely overlapped it shows you how similar we really are and how no matter how bad things get. We're never alone as we think I would end this by summarizing the advice in one tiny section but once again reader named Margo. Did it far better than I ever could. You can work through anything as long as you're not destroying yourself or each other. That means emotionally physically financially or spiritually making nothing off limits to discuss never Shaimaa each other things that make you happy right down why you fell in love in. Read it every year on your anniversary or more often write love to each other put each other i. When kids arrive it'll be easy to fall into a frenzy of making them. The only focus of your life do not forget the love that produce them. You must keep that love alive and strong to feed them love spouse come first each of you will continue to grow bringing the other one with you be the one that welcomes that growth. Don't think that the other one will hold the relationship together. Both of you should assume it's up to us that you're both willing to work on it. P passionate about cleaning house preparing meals and taking care of your home. This is required of everyone daily. Make it fun and happy and do it together. Don't complain about your partner to anyone. Love them for who they are. Make love even when you're not in the mood. Trust each other give each other. The benefit of the doubt be transparent. Have nothing to be proud of each other. Have a life outside of each other shared through conversation. Pamper and endure each other. Go to counselling now before you need to so that you're both open to working on a relationship together disagree with respect each other's feelings be open to change and accepting of differences bring this and referred to it daily interesting how to stop picking up. Romantic relationships relationships can be complicated and difficult but few people know that there are some pretty clear. Signals didn't offer relationship is going to work or not That was a really article that found and I actually read the Guy's book that did go and read about his stuff. Oh gotten theory or write about that before several times and I've actually watched it He has some videos on it. That are really cool that I've seen which kind of cracks me up and makes me laugh but I guess you know method. I think all of this is fun and Dandy and it really does work and this is advice from people that are married forty plus years and like I said I think everybody in relationships deals with different things different situations and have to cross many different paths and do it together so this is just some helpful information that maybe we'll change outlook on your relationship or take that you know hate enraged to something else. My Girl Jennifer Santo posted this tonight on Instagram. And I took a screen shot for you guys and this is what it says. Hate has four letters sodas. Love Enemies has seven. Letters Sodas. Friends lying has five. Letters Sodas Truth Negative has eight. Letters sodas positive under has five. Sodas above cry has three letters sodas. Joy Anger has five letters so does happy right has five. Letters Sodas wrong. Her has four letters sodas. He'll it means. Life is like a double edge sword so transformed every negative side into an oral positively. We should choose the better side of life and I think that's true. I think you can really turn things around. I've had friends go through horrible things in their relationship and they're still together today and very you know happy. And they're doing great didn't think they were. GonNa make it and they did so. I think you know at the end of the day. Everybody situation's different. This was just to help you guys out and you can listen to last week's podcast on the first part of this gentleman's article. I think that's really really helpful And when you get real pissed off instead of taking a walk around the block you can either sit in your car. Listen this podcast or put some earphones and take walk around the block and listen to this podcast. Maybe you won't kill your husband or wife so anyways you guys okay. Golden Nugget this week you guys. I know you think I'm crazy. Golden Nugget. You but it's true. Brielle sent me a picture of a lady's article where she put regular potatoes. Cut Up into little cubes on a string around her grandsons neck because he had one hundred two point. Nine fever for days. Couldn't get rid of it. She heard of this old remedy. She put it on them and he instantly within a few hours went down on ninety eight point five and never went back up again and the potatoes. Turn black at this point. I'm very stressed like I know what can happen. The problem with having a medical background is you know what can happen. And so I try to block that out and not remember it but I can't help when it gets so bad like cray telling me canes temperature. The other night was like what is it. Like a part of me didn't want to know and then the other part is I have to know so I can fix it but it's very. It's been very stressful. So I was willing to try anything. I appreciate all of your advice as well. You guys and we did it and so the first day that I thought about it was like Monday. I think right Monday so I thought about it on Monday. We made them. We put them on Cayenne Kane and then canes fever was really really high so we put Cain in the bath and then we realized that they were kind of getting a little wet but not too bad and I was set up. But he's pissed because the bathwater is lukewarm and they both like their water super hot and he's in the bathtub like literally an hour and a half. We could not get these fevers to go down. Tana wasn't working motrin wise but motions only every what eight thousand six to eight hours and obviously in between so that night again. Cain high high fever on the bathtub again. Three o'clock or one o'clock in the morning until three checking fever. It's just not so it wasn't really going down so yesterday morning. It was that this morning. I can't remember no yesterday morning. We made him a brand new potato necklace who took is off made her brand new on McCain won his fever dropped considerably and he's not been higher than like a hundred point eight nine two one. Oh one yeah. And he's kept it on this morning. You guys his potatoes were Belak as Krisher. The's wearing so people like you know if you leave a potato on the counter it's GonNa ripe. Well I know this but guess what did he had some extra leftover and he left it on the counter and it was like a little tinge of Brown but like no. It looks perfect. Nothing like twelve hours later like their necklaces. So if you have a child you guys have a fever. I guess it helps colds as well and viruses and bacteria in the system make that corey used fishing line and a needle just like sewing and he stuck it through each and every potato and then you type pretty close to their neck so that the potatoes can physically like rests on their neck and on their skin closer kind of up to their neck for whatever reason and you leave it on. Somebody asked me tonight like they. Don't they don't sleep with it. They did and I'm a Weirdo about that. No necklaces to bed. Like I'm just definitely strange about that but I definitely let them go to sleep because it's kept their favorite down so we have new necklaces on today. And we're good as gold We've been doing really really well. I swear by this you guys. I mean they worked so I know people are you know. They're potatoes of her potatoes and onions. You can also potatoes in their socks. A lot of people this lady said I'm Hispanic and I have always done this with my children. My mom did it with me. So forth. And so on We they potato slices on their foreheads. All the way around to their temples. And they put a Bandana around it and that knocks out the fever. I've never had to deal with fevers at weren't going down or were that that were this high ever my life and so. I'm I'm stressing exhausted. Y'All you can probably tell them my voice so I always get stressed in paranoid anyway. Yeah definitely I realized going through this whole like paranoid thing in the fevers of like one. Four point eight by ear and and all these things that were going through. I was starting so stressed out. Anxiety I was like I like have some P. S. T. D. stuff from the cash incident that I'm going to work on this year for sure because I just avoid it and the doctor in California reminding me that I avoid claustrophobia. Unlike really dealing with it and avoid the anxiety that I feel over any kind of situation. That isn't normal. Like so. Cain having a high fever I won't go there and take temperature because I'm freaked out and like scared or like when canes go car I couldn't walk over there and check on them even though I really wanted to. So yeah. We're going to. I'm going to work on that this year and find somebody. I don't know if it's like I don't even know who kind of deals with that But we're GONNA be working on that because it's getting worse so anything else you Wanna. Sabe o those fantastic find and let me tell you guys one more thing remedies but that seemed to work great and and there's I mean there's elderberry. There's the bath. Obviously that's tried and true. There's also this stuff that my chiropractor recommended. It's O. S. C. I. L. L. C. O. C. C. I. N. U. M. and it is certainly likes to homeopathic certified homeopathic for flu like symptoms. Body aches headaches. Fevers chills fatigue non-drowsy no drug interactions safe for children to an upward.

Fire In Vegas

"Thank you can count president off pioneer podcasting presents. House of kim with kim zolciak bearman join kim. Her husband and six children. She shares her journey to success in the positive mentality. That broader here come on in and make yourself at home now. Here's your host. Kim zolciak bearman. Hey you guys welcome to episode of house akin where i have nothing in front of me to read to you and it's just going to be something that we wing we're gonna talk all things vegas don't you just do that anyways wing it you get. No you drink too much. You spend too much. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose which has really chat my ass on this trip either way. You still come out on top though because it's all about the experience really because you weren't fucking saying that at the slot machine. Oh yeah and my mind i was. You are not to meet and if you guys saw my post i was like thank you for dealing with my mood swings. If i'm winning. I'm great if i'm losing pissed and i'm just one of those people super duper competitive. Not only am i competitive. But so his croix and so he can't and he knows his get mad at our four little's that are cajun cash and kane. I think cain what is like the most competitive no kgan cash are competitive. He just he doesn't care. I don't wanna say it's arrogant canes. Just good he's just shell. He just does what he does and and he has no problems letting other people win but he wants to win himself. Kgan cash are competitive to a fault like we are. Yeah i think it's to a fault like kgan. Caches attitude is determined by their fortnight win. Or whatever the fuck else is called something else apex. Even know what you're saying. It's just like every day at some other new fucking game but So they're super competitive. And i look at croix like you can't even get mad. You took two people that are so competitive right like the nfl. There's less than six hundred people that play in the nfl. A year played for nine years in the nfl How many people are in reality. Television i've been. I'm really television. Thirteen years listen that like less than the people in the nfl. Gb story actually. So you can't even get mad at our kids. And i think because i'm so competitive that's also always been my driving force to be number one and i think i don't look at that as a fault. I do at times like today. When i when when they're mad at fort night and whatever but i still to this day i got just as pissed back in the day when i didn't win. Something like super mario brothers was my thing with my brother when i didn't win as i do today like nothing's really changed. Well it's all you channel two so whatever shit but it could be positive Much like our best friend. Tom brady has channeled his competitor. Stupid into amazing success but Yeah so brielle tagged along the vegas. It's funny no way. We were in vegas though and Tom brady. We have the same friends in vegas which was like wait. What you this was fun like whenever tom. Brady's name is mentioned like ding ding ding. Always feel like. I can learn but anyways okay. So let's start with vegas from the various. Brill brill tags tag. Along she had an appearance with me. And you at the grand opening of mohegan sun slash virgin atlantic's new casino. I wrote this really awesome. Felt post for my instagram yesterday and it was just like i don't know eight or ten videos like random videos had taken all in one night. That was just kind of fun for everybody to see what we kind of experience. Why world is really amazing thing about how surreal. It is for me to be at a grand opening of a casino that is from my hometown like mohegan sun is in connecticut. I used to sneak in there when i was underage started. Yes i've never lost their. So i think i don't know if it was foxwoods casino. That started i or mohegan sun but they both kind of built area. Both of them are right next door. It's kinda like race track and quick trip. You know what i mean. Yeah they are yes. Oh wow oh yeah. Yeah yeah yeah interesting. So they're literally like a rock. Skip away. I've never ever ever lost at mohegan sun. I mean i guess it's like vegas strip. It's not a big deal but in that area feel like it is like it's in the middle of nowhere. You drive forty five minutes from where i grew up and all you. It's like a two lane road for for like thirty minutes of it. you know. it's definitely weird and then you foxwoods just like bright turquoise and purple and just crazy but anyways long story short whenever i'm ashton and paid to attend events for a casino in the town that i grew up in like so surreal to me and like dat you the limitations when he is like when you went in when you were underage they couldn't they couldn't come after you. Now know what the hell i said to the lady i said to you were breaking the law. I said to one of the girls. I wasn't sixteen. I was eighteen or nineteen. But i said to her twenty one. I was telling one of my friends not my friends but the lady that me who i consider at this point i said her. Don't say her name girl. What the hell was i thinking. Had i wanted jackpot like who was going to claim it. Like what a dumb ass i mean. I love slots back then. So anything ever won't even five hundred bucks. 'cause i'm sure i did but i put it back in you know so you never walked away a winner okay. So mohegan sun a world that play. A world to mohegan sun was created in nineteen ninety six by the mohegan tribe of connecticut and partnership with mohegan gaming and entertainment out of high school. There it is one of the were. I was yeah. It was one of the world's most amazing destinations ninety-six you did graduate ninety-six yes destination with some of the new england's finest dining hotel so it was founded in nineteen. Which would you go to their grand opening hoy. But i do now. My point is is that we did. I really big dreams in this. Very small house in windsor locks connecticut. I don't know why this trip to be honest with you guys. I was like very irritated. Feeling and i sometimes feel like the people that maybe stayed in my room before me or the people that are around me in the casino. I don't know i just wasn't like my jolly self. There was no reason for it. Because i did have a really great time. But i'm talking like directly in relation to the casino and the slots and like kind of like my excitement about gambling was like i got up and he like wanted to go gamble right away and i think that you're data me but whenever i feel like oh this is so annoying or whatever i always think back to like like what i have and where i'm at and all that i've been blessed with so it's really cool. Is that mohegan sun. Virgin atlantic opens a. I'm there is the hotel side a casino in their main floor and so mohegan sun parts with virgin atlantic so as my understanding it was like a private party right. That's what i was told right. It was originally initially. Like i think they had like a luncheon and all these things when we showed up at this point it had been opened up to everybody but then the actual event itself on the lawn was worst. Oh private okay all right so there was like a private event. Two hundred us for this this private dinner. Whatever you wanna call it. And then the rest of the casino. So let's start from the beginning of the trip right so they asked me to attend the event. And i'm like okay. Well i'll come a couple of days before but that casino wasn't even or the hotel wasn't even the day off so i stayed at my usual place. Okay we're not gonna get into that if you watch the show and you know what i'm talking if you don't you don't but i stayed at my usual place. I like my usual place because my it's older my room. I only take the stairs. So i can. I get like the presidential suite on the third floor instead of the top floor. Because i won't take elevators. They always have my otis for me. None of the restaurants are open because of it. It's a big fucking problem szekely. Kim is stuck in routines and yet it has a tourist tourists incredibly hard time changing anything up. Any kind of change gives rings zaidi it. You're just like no. I know what's going on and not because i started that place just two years ago. I know but that's what i used to always tell you that though quiet. I'm like you had there was a beginning to this experience that you're so comfortable with now. Let's start a new beginning that you'll make new boys better about this trip though. So i'll tell you guys this. The day that we left to las vegas. I did not take dr. Bobby g. tonic. Because i was not going to shit myself all over the airplane. And i was not gonna shit on an airplane toilet which i've never done in my whole life. Get to Las vegas it puts me in the best mood in corinth. I haven't really been away from the family and a while very long time. Especially since cove. Ed unusually we're used to traveling for disappearances or we just to the beach for two days so it's been like a long time away from like the little. I have a great assistant. Tracy's back to work. I have the best in the world so everybody can in arianna stays here as well which is so cute when we're gone so with that being said we arrive and i posted on my close friends. I didn't post some actual but like we have like. I don't know twelve bags right. Well we have That came to my makeup artist. Came channel nine. Then then i carry to carry. On's then zach carries his carry on and wanna kim's carry on brio carries her carry-on and one of my carry and janelle has her lights in her backpack and her her snacks and she's all into the fitness. And so we are. I mean it really travel with upwards of twenty bags at least for four days. Four full days twenty. I love my wife to death. I appreciate my wife to death. I think that she is absolutely incredible when it comes to being a forward thinker with with products and routines and all these things but we have. We have a full bag larger than the size of a carry on. That is stuffed full of night. Creams foot masks face masks shampoo. Batty washes razors oily Fucking different mass scares walking full bag. Oil self tanner. You could not carry this thing on aside from just being fulla kashmir collections. For no fucking reason. I love skin care. Aside from being full of like products that wouldn't be would be able to get through security. But i'm telling you the bag is so big. It's a four suitcase and it's nothing but body products. I didn't even know you could fuck in. Put fifteen face creams on your face at night. I feel like i did. I didn't know. I didn't know they made a special for the i and the pay and the and the lip in the frowned part in the forehead and the hair. There's a cream for everything and she's got it and we pack it and it comes and then when we get there she uses three three maybe four and the rest. Sit in the suitcase. But she's prepared. You never know what you need. I will be quiet. I can tell you what you did drank should i. Should i tell everybody what we had to use. As they're not sampler platter but what the fuck do they see their little. What are you calling croix when you suck my stroke when they picked okay. Whatever the bird to figure it out. I've tried everything that he needed. Okay you guys like spun me for using the hotel shampoo and conditioner disgusting. Why you have colored hair who cares and is it not. We use professional. We use kashmiris deep conditioner. We we have really product job done. Fantastic no your hair. Looks i like fucking bad. Let's just jump into the ship to fix it. So i do but you don't wanna use it you just want to be and like i have plenty of body wash. I had plenty of stuff for him to us and he's still uses the hotels are it's weird. It's like he's cheap. Cheapest shit as frugal. Is that what it is. The word that's cheap your. We're not winning. You're the fucking reason why we're not wanting cleaning cheap. You're going to be cheap at the slots. Look if i don't have to buy shampoo to bring that's an extra five dollars to put the machine. That's a fucking lie. You're not feeling re smart. You're being sheet. that's extra spin. You have to feel right fuel gamble. I feel your bad ass room. They give me free shampoo conditioner. Because i got this bad ass room. I'm rich dude. The cheap so let's just talk about this okay so i bring all these fancy clothes right. I love this website forward. F w r d dot com anyways. I love i love their website. They just have like young hip clothes. But like it's just like for me. Brielle arianna anyways. I told my girl. Maria that my personal shopper. That hey could you just send me some clothes. You know the for vegas. Or whatever just to gamble. Because i already have my alpha picked out. It was very mukul runaway. That i wore to the event for mohegan sun that everybody was so you press paninis. Need to calm down about but anyway she sent me a bunch of these different looks and i fell in love with many of them and i ended up wearing yoga clothes which i love. I feel my best at this age. Forty two in yoga closed the sneakers. I gotta be honest. So i loved my face without makeup up until probably the last like year. I actually prefer makeup now whereas like the last year. No for real. I didn't like makeup now. I feel like my makeup artist journalist bomb like she's amazing she general not. We need to work on different locks. Because i like the same thing. But i definitely have loved myself more with make up the last year than i had prior to that i myself. I'm felt way prettier without it. I still feel pretty without it but not like maybe. Because i don't wear not because of covid like when i have an aunt my bam bitches like whatever it is so anyway interesting. I didn't know that that had changed. That's yeah i mean. How often do i do. My makeup filming. We filmed five days a week at least once a week. You do it. i feel like now recently. No i had cova outside of that holidays. And i have in my notes here that if i never saw wine again i would be okay. And we've been home two days and a half a solo cup of wine so anyway. I'm just sharing that with him so anyways gymnasium. I make good on the slots. Play the slots blake. I'm just. I've not been like in the best mood. I've not been not felt very positive. I guess of not felt very. I don't know i feel. I was talking to. Angie my spiritual counselor at it and she was saying i'm gonna pull it up actually because i was like i feel very irritated. And it's just not like me and she said this is so with all this going on with all the i don't get the fuck implants the moon the st- i know it's a full moon specifically tonight. Which is sunday so all my crystals are out. But i don't really understand all of the planets. And i don't actually want to learn right now in my life maybe later on but so i just said i feel so weird and angry. She's like it's time to make changes at create life flow in peace in a huge shaft. It's actually painful to a very To a lot of people fearful sad angry and overwhelmed or what people are feeling right now. And so i said desk kind of how i feel and she said. I'm sure you're very very intuitive. So you're probably picking up a lot of people's energy as well so if you are feeling like you're in a fog overwhelmed irritated frustrated trying to you don't feel like things are flowing. It's not just you by the way. I think it's kind of what we're going through with the planets the shifts the changes with everything going on when i reflect back on this last year. I'm very thankful to be with my family and my children but hole. And i don't do well with change and i get to stay home so i love to be home. That's my favorite thing. I don't even like to leave. Pick my kids up from school. Crista usually does that and go ahead and write in some bullshit. It's fine. I go on the fucking mornings but anyway i like to be at home but it's a lot of being at home. It's a lot of like almost getting stuck in a row of being at home. And so i realized how much fun i've just you guys in. This is off topic but With you guys on social media the last four or five days at been in vegas you guys have been so fun. I mean some of you have been assholes but you know like my alpha. I don't really care. I mean that's what kind of makes it goes on but like i asked you guys yesterday. Give me another like really awesome casino in place to go and talk to you guys about the knelt boys and all this good stuff and the people that we hung out with. On what night was that thursday thursday night because they told me about red rock casino. Which is what all of you guys are actually mentioning and talking about two. There's a lot of casinos. I just want to know what works was great for people. I'm just interested. Because i am stuck in kind of a routine and i would like to try. Maybe something different so anyway we went to. We went out to dinner with after the grand opening. Right yes because it was. So everybody's like oh my god. I can't believe you party with your daughter. This is so embarrassing. You're the worst mother i suppose. She's twenty four number one number two. I think i'm not supposed to have a good night with my daughter how we together. She loves to drink wine. She loves to play blackjack. Like i do who. There's nobody else. I'd rather be with my family. She's a grown adult who can make grown adult decisions. We have given her the tools to be successful in life into make her own decisions and our own calculations in a situation. Where maybe we aren't there but who the fuck. Yeah of course if we're going to be in the same area we're gonna throw some shots back. We're going to have a glass of wine. We're gonna get dinner. Have good conversation. Hang out with their friends. Who cares she is so fucking beautiful inside a now even more beautiful on the inside she. When i was looking at her at this event that we were at together she so beautiful and i see so much of myself in her. As far as roma's like i guess some boring right. That's not really the word but like she likes yeah. She likes a glass of wine or two like noser limit will most of the time she knows her limits and like likes a good meal and good company that she trusts. It's hard for brielle. Brielle has been in the spotlight since she was eight years old and she's been on television since he was eight. She's twenty four. And so with that being said i mean. I think there's a lot of. She's a lot of inhibitions. I guess about people and so we're going to get into. We hung out with and darryl kind of help you understand her. She is but with that. Being said i'm looking at this event and i'm just like god. She's so beautiful that came as well. zach braille. Been best friends for many many years and so he came. He went to the event as well. melissa gorgon from jersey housewives was there and her husband. Mario lopez who i've known for a gazillion years. A ton of people were there. Everybody was so polite and respectful. It was super breezy like windy. I liked the vegas could be that kind of cold and that wendy we landed. It was raining every time. I've been there. It's like hot and stale dry air which is perfect. I love it. But it was significantly. Wendy and pretty chilly. And i well when we got home to atlanta. I'll be honest. I wanted to go back to vegas. Humidity's fucking killing. I hate it. Makes me almost miserable. But i love my house. I love my house. I love my house alumni house. Okay so i do the event we do the appearance. I go gamble. I wanna jackpot back in. I mean how about the was it the first night where i was. Slide down the seat at the slots. This is where brielle is a problem. So i land. I don't care about anybody or anything or food or wine. I care about the slots. And so i just want to get to my room and get situated and already had my make up done that morning so that i could go right to the slots we land. I mean my casino host brandon. We go up to the room. He gets situated unpack stuff kind of red ago. Go downstairs go to the slots bring wine kreiner having a crisis of me you guys and if you read my post yesterday so he sits in the play the slots does that like it's okay so but then i'm like it's your fault that i'm losing go somewhere else like if i'm winning you're the best husband and man and so that we all deal with it. So men socio we all do so brielle's she loves blackjack and i'm not really into blackjack as much i'll go to blanchett get money and then i go to slots blackjack is so fucking slow here. In the bahamas. It's fast shit. And that's where i learned blancas there been fun for me. I love numbers. Love cards. I love poker texas holdem. But i can't do blackjack it's either craps texas holdem or watch new slots. I can't even do slots either. Can't unless there's like ones that have like the cool games feature and like something you get to pick and like. They need to make more games like that like slot games. Like i'm fucking so mad right now that i'm telling you if anybody is out there and they make casino games. We need ones where you pull the lever jingyu lineup. Three things and all of a sudden you get pick a pick a treasure box and then and then pick a multiplier like fucking georgia lottery iraq with the game instead of just hit the button. All i want do is hit a button. I worked so hard every day in life. I'd rather just hit a button. I don't wanna think know. I get it like there's still a place for those kind of gamblers in just hit the button and watch the things. Go and it's the same traditional things. But i mean we need to evolve. Casinos have had the same slot machines for for my if these sixteen fritz slot machine diamond diamond deluxe is very few and far between quarries. It's fucking ancient but it works its ancient but it works. I am actually like my heart's racing. And i'm like really upset. I'm not there. And i was so ready to get home. Okay i think we. There's there's gotta be a way. There's so much innovative technology in this day and age. We could have some amazing interactive gambling games that would totally be engaging but still a machine like it's not throwing dice or playing with cards or sitting in front of a dealer it's totally computerized machine. But somebody's gonna do it and they're going to capture the world's attention and it'll be the number one casino for a very long time. I promise you let me just go off track here. I actually forgot one item. And i never forget this item and i didn't realize that i had forgotten this item until not the first night but the next night when my eyes were like crinkly underneath and dry i forgot my not only my like kashmir. Icm but i use this skin medica cream over top of the sierra. And it's like it's just a dream team. Well my eyes were literally i kid. You guys not like crazy underneath.

So that's easy but skin medica like is all over the united states but i get it online usually so aren't even know if people actually like it their store his anybody know where i can get this eye cream blah blah blah blah. So a fan of mine. Dm's me and says. Hey i'm downtown. I know exactly where i can get it. They open at ten o'clock. I'll bring it to you. I said oh. My god. I'll pay you.

Because i've been using this cream for twenty years and it's white. I'm not sure why i don't give a fuck. I put it on my eyes start burning. I'm like what's going on with this weird but it's the same consistency texture and smell. But it's literally like mustard color. I still to this date on. What the hell's wrong with it. I still paid full price. And i'm going to work it out but my eyes were definitely burning. They still creepy underneath. Like i don't have crappy under is if i do get botox there. But my judy had four other bike creams. I did but they give me that. Like melia ladies. Why do we know you well. I only carried the one for emergency. Basically it was a little sample. That i had but i tried it. And it gives me these little like melia. Which is it looks a little a hard ball three though not cry. You just can't stick anything on your. I what i think on my cheeks can't go under my is very delicate skin. I swear to. God there's gotta be at least four bottles. Say some sort of eye cream series. I you guys post. I'm gonna post on my page wednesday. Okay i'm gonna post. I'm writing re wednesday post ice cream. Jor you guys know. You don't want to have at least one hundred and fifty eye creams shits you. Not but they all this melia shit. So that's why with all four collections. I we made a serum like a role on thin serum. So it doesn't ever do that. I don't want to throw them out just in case just be quiet anyways so this gentleman was so nice. I put masks on my face. I fucking did put self. Tanner alight self tanners. Release jenner on. I got my out on. I love my alpha. I'm going to tell you guys how i've gotten skinny care I don't weigh myself. But i feel relief. Great aside from dr bg. There's something else that plays into this whole equation. I'm going to talk about. Got my alpha on crooks really hot and were out the door so we show up at the casino amr show up at the wrong door and so we have to walk like it feels like three miles to find like where we're actually supposed to be hung out. There said hi to everybody game with a little bit and headed back to the casino that we're staying out and we reservations at nobu. So i guess you guys know where the fuck staying so had reservations at nobu so we all went their maximum six people so my casino hosts couldn't join us so it was me. Oh i didn't tell you guys one. I had one embryos friends come in and surprise her. He flew in private with a couple of his friends and she was wanting them to come and gamble with her because they're big gamblers and they love to gamble as much as she does and so she's like mom like they can't come. I'm so sad. At the time. I knew they were coming. So when we got back from the were walking through the door the casino and he's texting me the whole time like worship the left or to the left and so i walk over and browse like mom like she couldn't. I can't keep a secret for shit. So she was so excited that they surprised or and so we ended up going to be for dinner. Sat down there and had an awesome dinner. Nobody was really good. It was good. I don't know if you guys have heard the knelt poise. I had not until this wicked browse like mom. You don't even know you're so clueless you're out of the loop you have no idea what's going on your to old blah and i guess maybe she's right because the knelt kboi's steve will do it or yes so steve from the boys and oakwood or three guys. Yeah i've learned this This weekend talking to steven brill's friend and everybody else but yes. So steve is is one of the boys. He has his own kind of spin off of their youtube channel. Where steve will do it. Disguise crazy crazier than than i could have ever imagined being in college. I don't i don't know it's just i don't wanna know it's like crazy. I was wilding. College cool bro. i don't want it. i thought i was wild. When you look at this guy. I i was. I was like. I was a good christian boy in college. Compared to this guy aski- this okay. So we sit down. And so i can see across so alan is name one embryos friends and he's really good friends with steve from the knelt boys and so i can see through like no booze like slits in there. Because they won't let them stay with us. Yeah because we have six people. They wouldn't let them sit at the bar either. Which was so weird so it was so stupid right so there was sack. Brielle me a ryan. Which is allen's best friend allen and they would not let anybody else join us and they would not let them sit at the bar and the bar had plenty. Empty space is so weird so they kind of went across the way number remembering things now together. Yeah thanks. i'm like steve. And i'm like yelling through the like the wood panels of nobu stay and he's like looking around like who the fuck is calling me is. This happens a lot if you're not familiar. I'm watching people person after person. Just go up galore. Just taking pictures with him so we're done eating or whatever and My husband pays the bill. You're so sweet and we get up when we leave and we go meet up with steve and seve says it has. Mom follows like a couple of people on it's me and imprio- his mom loves you guys. You guys are amazing and can you send her a video and or like a voice message and so all i kept thinking to myself was if my son's love me like he loves his mom like so real and i made a video. We took pictures and like we'd love you mom and it was so cute. He's out drinking and smoking cigarettes and having a great time and his thinking about his mom. And i'm like please let this be my boys. The only reason why is because she's texting him. Don't die tonight. Like i never got a text like that from my mom like. Don't die literally. don't die tonight. That's what that's what she texted. Because this is how crazy this dude is so we all get in his bus this like. I don't even know where the bus came from. Does anybody know it. Yeah it was. It was back of at the back of the line waiting to get hired from some wall. We uber uber's were backed up for miles. It was just it was shit show. We didn't wanna take a taxi because we wouldn't all fit in one and so there was this mercedes-benz party bus and he was ready to go and allens. Yep and out came the damn boston we got in it you guys. We weren't in this fucking thing about one hundred feet and he pulls over doesn't even pull over. He stops in the middle of the road. Gets out of the driver's side in the middle of minimalist comes around to the side door and everybody's bluetooth off because you're trying to figure out how to get the work. Yeah he had like two guys. It was a steve. And i think allen and they were all three trying to connect the bluetooth because they all wanted to be deejays for brielle. They were true story so they all wanted to be. I wanna be like. I got it. you know. And they didn't because none of them could fucking connect but he pulls it over. Everybody turned their blew up. And so he's back there pushing buttons and shit. We're getting behind us. Because we ask creighton. And he's got his fucking emergency lights on and the doors wide open right in front of the bellagio fountains and all of a sudden. This music is this. Like pakistani prayer prayer music song starts to come on. Turn it loud as she as you can imagine. Wow to ship. And he can't get it off so then he runs. I i think. I think he had his phone as pocket or somehow but then he gets shut off and he's like he he basically kaiser. It's just not working so then we put the radio on. At least we figured that out but yeah he right in the middle of strip illustrate but he he was quite funny. So we're jamming. And i am just as you can see some videos on my instagram. Having a grand old time until we get to mandalay bay and mandalay bay dana white. Who's the president the you have seen which you guys know. We're huge fans. That's who we were going to meet with. Some his people over there had a drink or whatever and we were done and we got actually so this is what i think is really sweet about brielle's friends right and this is why i i know what i like is a woman with a man in dating croix and whatever and so brielle's friend boys that are not boyfriends. But boy what they said. Listen we're gonna. I said you guys i'm tired. I don't wanna go to the strip club wherever the fuck you guys are going. Come interested korean.

The parent wasn't on the way by the way it was now. I thought it was going completely this way and we were going this way. Oh interesting.

Why do you love to gamble. It's whole do gamble bouba. Here's the thing for me right. Would we own like four companies. Six kids you guys know what we do and so for me. Gambling is something and that's why blackjack it like. I still have to think polling slot machine and not having to think about what's going to spin and show up is like my favorite. It's been my favorite. Since i can remember. My parents didn't introduce me to gambling. Nobody introduced me to gambling. That i can remember. I was like let's go to the casino opened up. Whatever it's become my love so there's absolutely nothing wrong with gambling if you do responsibly. Nothing wrong if you are. You're loss if you're irresponsible responsible. Because i like in there. You know like it's a way to like but there's something wrong with having three bottles of wine and i i don't know if i had three bottles fucking base down but you guys so by the way as you saw a lot of times my story and vegas was asleep very early and i was like okay. Anybody that wants to sell a kidney or a kid. I did not go to sleep. Okay you guys. I'm going to repulse messori. Did we we in. He laid down on the bed in his clothes the night before. I think trying you knew what i wanted as you were preoccupied with. What does you want thinking about the slots and in from the going to have sex with you when they're downstairs. It's not here. No yes you were the one being suggestive for the two hours prior to me laying down your this is all i. It's not all prepared. You even shut the door. You were fully dressed. I mean you know. I took my shoes off. You know it was. You know desire to do any of that. I wanted to get down to and then nothing so then. Of course he got he lays down i the thing about guys i made like i literally. I might have fallen asleep for maybe three minutes. Maybe but anytime you touched me. I was like yep. Let's go where we going. You know you wanna go. Let's go and we never went. I'm not stupid so ladies. I know that this is just not me. Does your husband fall asleep in thirty fucking seconds no matter where he is and it takes us fucking and our look. It's so annoying. I wanna actually smother him with a pillow. Sometimes when he's snoring. Like i often about five days at seven. Wanna take my pillow and just smother. Because he's snoring. I'm like you're not gonna fucking be asleep. If i can't sleep the hell with you but i didn't wanna go to sleep at nine o'clock at night which was twelve o'clock atlanta time. I didn't want to go to sleep. I wanted to go to the casino. Or i'm not going to go by myself because my husband's big and he. He's my bodyguard. I'm not going to go to the high slot limit with by myself. It'd be boring. That would be weird on the life of the party. Well i can feel chris energy behind me like yeah irritated. 'cause i just got sick shoved down my throat from brielle terrible with brielle. You've done over here. And i'm like brielle likes nineteen forty two. I like paternal. Anybody says it's the only thing that goes down easily. Every thirty seconds she was bringing me a shot. You know what that means to me though. It doesn't mean. I have to drink it whereas he feels the need to drink the whole thing so i take a sip and i set it down. The next one comes at the same thing cheers whether let's do it. She's drinking drinking. That's the problem. That's the problem problem but anyways you guys were back home from vegas irritated. I didn't feel like aside from the appearance in like seeing everybody. It wasn't like i had a really relaxing fun ass trip. It was more like great slept a lot. I'm off schedule. But it wasn't like. I had this exhilarating win. That completes me or makes me feel great. It was more like the who open to other. Always gotta have a yahoo moshe. Never happened you kind of feel like you were never in vegas. Yeah right yeah like never at least one point in vegas no matter what even if you put it all back in. You gotta have at least one yahoo moment. Yep and there was no yahoo moment and i feel like to. Maybe it's just me but cova did i. I don't know if you know everybody's everybody's on edge right the the dealers and the staff. They have to do extra things to keep people safe which is great and all but it's just another layer of of work for them stress for them. You're tation for them and they're supposed to be people pleasers right. They're supposed to be all about customer service in. They're having to tell people to put their masks up. And they got people sitting in these little chairs with with glass walls next to them so that they can play and it's just like it's tight it's uncomfortable and the energy is just not there like like that free energy to have fun and hoot and holler and throw back. A drink is just not there tied. It's edgy it's irritated classic inbetween everyone. The craps table is a big part in canada experience. Right now so. I met one of the when we were with dana. White and steve. And all these people kind of at this at mandalay bay or whatever. One of the big wigs at red rock was there and everybody was like red. Rock is like the best place to play. It's off the strip. So when i posted the other day you guys commented a lot red rock and you also a lot of people that live there. Say like off the strip ago off the strip to win big and have fun. So i'm going to try something different just to see for like shits and giggles. Because i don't feel like my comps very good either where i was staying anyways phony story to you. Make mistakes got poke fun at yourself. We land where tired again. Kim's fucking bringing of twelve back alone to herself. By the time. I got my briefcase. The hanging bag her makeup bag or pro. I mean we're we're close to ten twelve bags so i get a cart. I get all the bags on the cart. And a mike. I'm just really want to get home late. I'm going to see the kids. And so the fastest way of my mind was like i'm going to throw the carbon. The escalator fullbacks the cart. That you push at the airport fuller bags loaded up to the nines. It's like the on the wall they say don't put the stroller on the fucking escalator. Take the elevator. Don't put the. There's a reason why they say so. But done this before you guys It's not that this is my first time. They must have changed the design of this escalator. So got it on nice and easy. And i'm sitting there in it kind of leaned a little bit kim's like oh my god created on like yes. I'm fine sweetie. i'm fine. I'm like i got this down. I have a lot of anxiety in my heart starts racing. And i'm thinking oh my god he's gonna die. I got this thing down. So i'm fine. I got it like i got it propped up. It's like it's like popping wheelies and we get to the top though and it all starts to level out and so i'm like okay. I'm going drop the front wheel. Because i think i'm Off the escalator part. Well he's not dropped it to soon. The front wheel was still on the escalator. And then it got hung up on the bump to go over like to get off of the escalator. You guys and so then. My body is coming up with the escalator. It gets sideways the carpet side with the bag. So then it gets caught on the rubber sidewalls of the escalator. And i can't get through and i saw. I'm like shoveling the bag. Basically being an athlete at the end of the escalator jumping over nineteen bags. And like leaping. And i don't even know what anybody's lakes could get that high until you're in a situation where you're about to die and he jumped over all of them drug in this mortal dropped my chanel bags my makeup bag my suitcase. It has my wigs and all my shit. Nah i just throw it on the ground. My arm still hurts to the right. Because i'm like trying to get 'em pulling. I've never moved that fast in five years since our fucked. Because because of the car. I was ripping the car over top of all of our bags the bags trying to get. Because i'm looking behind me. And i could've swore i saw somebody behind me so then i was like. Oh my god because i'm gonna start backing. This escalator up right. Like nobody's going to be on down by the way. Thank god because it would have real bad. If there was people behind me i said. Hopefully nobody got this on video. Now they did they did. I looked around. Everybody was so the night the first night on a side note the first night that coin. I were gambling at the casino. It was super late. We hadn't eaten in probably twelve fourteen hours brielle's bringing patrolling shots. Brielle leaves us with a few probably goes blackjack credit like we're so fucking hungry. So we find the only restaurant open which is pizza and we walk which was like the longest walk of my life in sneakers by the way and there's like forty people online so we're standing in line and i'm kind of in front of corey and he's got his arms around my waist like kind of like a prompt pose and of swing. He's like somebody's filling stop it. He's like somebody's filming. I couldn't stand straight even when he told me somebody who's filming like we're fox is we're fucked to be and so i still don't still seen. It took us about thirty minutes. We'd get up to the window and she said hey girl what you want. And she's like. I said anything you've got right now and so there was like the forty people that were in front of me. Were waiting to get their food that they order. I said i'll just take whatever you got. She said meat lovers while you guys don't need that shit so i said nope she said pepperoni esa girl. I'll take dowd's pilots should. I don't give up for like i have to. I said i'll take cookie. I'll take this. I'll take this and she's putting it on a box now. So when i turned around to walk away was like fuck you bitch with the worst sitting here waiting and you got your food but i just took whatever the basically i feel like. They had in the window. She's like later cam. I was like oh my. I remember social security walks up the stairs and i remember career for some reason had to go somewhere had to go get security guard to let us into let us up him so no because i was with a security guard and so i was sliding down the or sliding down the wall and us exer- this is partly burnt. Sir can you get me cokesbury series. Yes soon as we get to your muscles. Nah i think any diet coke right now. He's like. I don't think that's going to happen. And i'm like we're fucking so he's got to think i'm crazy. My point is it forty two. I still have fun anyways. We get home. There's a million boxes at my front door. I'm looking at my dog right now. I have to laugh. So there's a builder on instagram. You guys. I'm gonna pull it up to tell you the right name. There's this builder that i've been following for. I don't even know. Brianna are obsessed with year's probably. Yeah his name is ferris f. e. r. r. i s. and then refund r. a. f. a. u. l. i. He built drake's how she's just like a very talented builder. He'll build our house someday too so he just got this king corso which i'm like super obsessed with and he has all these different like studied collars and chains and i'm like what the faulk why is insane have won so before i leave i by sin this big gold chain link cosco and then i have this pig bone custom-made sin with our phone number and so i kind of forgot about it. When i got home i opened. I was like what the hell is this. And this is big ass chain in sin. Thinks he is mr big dick with this chain on. He literally was running around the house. Crows playing fortnight. When i put it on him and i said go show daddy go show daddy and he kept shaking his head shaking his head like all the way down to show croix sydney. Like your chain do. It's it's so funny by the way. Brielle state in vegas flew flew private to miami with her friends and so i face time turnovers like since new cautious. Like you've you've done fucking lost your mind dude. You're done. You're dumb vegas. You're dumb with the dog like you're crazy. It was kind of funny so anyways i just bought on amazon. It wasn't even that expensive but it looks definitely super cute. Okay you guys. Ops are golden nugget. We're gonna jump jump into right now because so many questions about everybody thinks i look so skinny and so i don't know if i've lost weight or not i feel great. I sure dr. Bg stuff has something to do with it. But also i'm going to share with you guys the company that had promoting talking about That i'm so obsessed with modera. They have a product called trim. I have any kind of product. I've ever taken the past back in my twenties. I tried like random products that would make my heart race and little. Did i know i had a whole married at the time. Thank god but there would make my heart race. They would make me feel good so i never tried any diet products like they don't work for me. I'd rather do like a a shake that would maybe curb my appetite versus product. That would make my heart race if that makes any sense so my girlfriend. Jennifer sent these products to me like three months ago. They've been sitting in my fridge. No big deal with covert. I felt like my skin got super super dry. Just didn't have energy. I just felt blah. Just didn't feel right so i was probably grasping at straws. I felt like at that point. But so i was like well. Just try this stuff called trim and then Life and so it's a tablespoon of trim In the morning. And then a tablespoon of life in the morning and tablespoon life at night which is collagen a straight college. And i love my sweets more than anybody. I definitely have to have something sweet after lawn. Something sweet after dinner. And i feel like i'm doing so amazing without having like a peanut butter cup set a two or three. I'm pretty obsessed with this stuff. They have a lean body system. That i've been doing for only three weeks and i feel like i've definitely lost inches. I bought the outfit that i wore to mohegan sun. It's like i said theory mueller. I bought it probably six months ago. And it was definitely bigger in the like above my but basically there's definitely was quite a bit fabric there and i had like altered to my body basically so i definitely know it's working. Trim has patents on it out the ass it's been clinically shown to decrease body fat. Cla not only supports fat metabolism and actually helps block fat transport from the bloodstream into the fat cells. Sugar free gluten free the main ingredient in trim. Cla can scientific word anyways. google mocking. Say right now. But it's a naturally occurring fatty acid that supports weight loss while helping you increase lean muscle. Mass it helps block the fat. Like i said transport from the bloodstream. Into the fat cells inhibiting fat. Absorption reducing fat cell size and fat cell formation also helps reduce the urge for on needed food intake. I'm obsessed you guys with it. It is definitely our newfound product core. Loves it too. Here's the funny part of the story. My girlfriend sent me lemon. And i was like jenn. Actually hate lemon lemon cake. Lemon anything lemon water. Even like i dislike lemon. She's like a whole all my god. I'm gonna send you chocolate and she never did so. Thanks jen but she never sent it. Well we tried the lemon and really like it and we tried the life and it tastes kinda like pomegranate juice. A a grant so it's collagen as well. Life is collagen. So if you guys know this but when you do a liquid collagen your body absorbs ninety percent of that versus thirty percents like a powder collagen. It's just easier for your body to absorb polls the nutrients a lot more effectively. So jen sent chocolate. I hate it actually. I hate chocolate. It tastes like a very heavy new teller or something. And i don't like an. Oh we ordered okay. We ordered it. Well i thought hold lemons not bad so our inquiry love chocolate me. I'm not. I'm okay with it. I don't really like jen. Says the best is mango really. Yeah i don't like mango. So i'm going to stick with lemon so anyways you guys. It's the lean body system that i've been using. I will put the link here below this podcast for you guys. Also the reference code is nine five seven six five five nine you guys know. I mean. I'm not being paid to tell you guys this. I just loved the product. You guys in were so sweet to me i do. I feel energetic. i feel great. I don't feel like. I'm craving sweets as much. I just i just feel different and then get you ten dollars off your first order and if you want to set up an auto ship much like amazon prime more subscription Through amazon then you start to get percentage points off your order every month. You don't have to think about it. Just auto charge bottle lasts so egypt supply month's supply. Yes you don't have to think about it or whatever and feel free to try. I recommend the lemon. Said i hate the lemon. It's a different like consistent consistency. But not quite as thick like charlie stick. It's odd well around. Great love the chocolate. I'm of the stuff that i've had to take for supplements to help improve physical performance and muscle recovery and all that. This is a piece of cake. This is like like eating pudding for real it literally eating putting it's delicious taste. There's massive amounts of science behind this product seven patents guys. Seven patents on this company has sold over five. Nsf certified which means that nfl players can take it in. The list and restrictions for nfl players are is humongous and to get this certification is is really really big anyways. You guys try it out. Let's get our summer bodies together. Collagen for me over. The years has always been like a big lump of like a rock in my stomach whenever i take it. I don't eat like beef into all these things. So i think a lot of it's like What is it like bean broth or whatever it is so like. Yeah and so There's marine collagen collagen in plant based this is pointless so it definitely agrees with me. I think you guys will be really really happy with it anyway. The link and the description. Let me know what your thoughts are next week you guys. We're gonna talk about a burglary in the manner. Which is where i live. I need spring. Break fun ideas. You guys don't know what to do with my kids. Spring break is next week. Haven't really given it much. Thought we'd been here there and everywhere and then we're going to talk about how my husband sold her elliptical for like basically a fucking dollar and it's a seven thousand dollar machine thanks guys so much for real you guys for tuning into this episode of house akin.

When Will Boxings Biggest Star Return?

"This is sports illustrated boxing podcast boxing. Boxing with sports illustrated's Chris. Bennett interviews analysis in everything going on in boxing, and now a man who I wish was called the Boston leader. It's sort of like getting punched in the face Kris maddox. All right. I deck is here friend of the podcast senior writer over at boxing scene Dot Com as always subscribed rate review this podcast on Apple podcasts wherever you listen to podcasts, it is all much appreciated. KIEF good to talk to you. Again, my friend what's going on as always Chris Doing. So, have you been I'm just kind of getting back into the boxing mindset after leaving the NBA bubble. Have you've been going to these Mohegan Sun shows as of late Now. We weren't allowed actually I thought in the beginning the August I show initially the August fifteenth show for sure we they would allow some media. On an ultimately, they aired on the side of caution and decided not to allow people to go. So the first card that I'll cover in over six months will be the Charles pay per view next week. CIGNA full six full days at glorious. Mohegan Sun. That was my my issue with with covering that in person it's a good card and we'll talk about that but That's the kind of show. Keith. where I think you probably would do maybe the same parachute in the day before the day of but because of testing requirements, you can't do that so I mean. That's probably keep me from a lot of the mid to low level shows going to them that requirement to be there earlier than the day of. You definitely, to quarantine for twenty four hours and get off early ordinarily Chris and. Obviously. You're covering multiple sports and everything. The way we operate for boxing scene purposes I generally for particularly for pay per view fights on. Pretty much there by Monday night especially when it's in Vegas because they do the grand arrivals which. have access to the fighters afterward everything. So I'm Kinda used to the long. Long fight weeks but but yeah, it's GONNA be. It's GonNa be interesting Restrictive. But from what I've been led to believe not as restrictive as may be, might not you personally but all of us might think. So it's not quite as bad as we're. We've been led to believe. So you know look I'll be happy I'll be interested. To break up the monotony you know working from home in China you've been locked away in the bubble down there in Orlando for quite some time but You know I work from home ordinarily when I'm not on the road but this is the longest I've gone in my entire journalism career which spans hour-long Twenty Six, twenty, seven years. Now we're having covered any kind of event I. Mean it's by far the longest amount of time. So you feel Kinda cooped up and. You're very appreciative that you still have your job in and everything like that. But. What you want to get out and start and start. Behaving normally I. Guess if covering boxing living is behaving normally probably is not Want to get back to some sense of normalcy. So I'm looking forward to the I. Agree. Getting out covering events having to dumb after the NBA it's definitely is refreshing even if it is under some awkward type of circumstances. All right. Before we get into actual flights I, WanNa talk about the ongoing drama that is Canal Alvarez, the lawsuit filed. This month was dismissed this past week. It was more of a technicality than anything else the judge ordered. Canales. Lawyers to refile in a different way. The expectation is that can ellos legal team will do that, and we will once again have Canelo v Golden boy and the. Oscar de la Hoya took to social media after the lawsuit was dismissed kind of. I don't want what word to use pleading asking for hoping that. This dismissal would lead to some sort of impasse that be a resolution that wouldn't involve a legal entanglement, but it doesn't seem like that is in the immediate offing so. You've been covering this for a few weeks now from the disown angle to Canal Oh too what golden boy has been saying, what do you make of this lawsuit? I mean, is this the kind of lawsuit that only has one outcome that sees canelo separate from golden boy zone or other multiple outcomes that could be a play here I don't think there's only that one outcome Chris in the sense that last thing that can Nilo Alvarez wants is a prolonged legal entanglement that is going to keep him out of the ring even longer than he's already been out of it. We're going on almost a year since he fought it's almost eleven months now. He still in the prime of his career is. Remarkably, thirty years old despite that he's been fighting forever. It seems. So I think his prime earning years here. He's not looking to be wrapped up in court for two years. I mean that would be an utter waste of time and Energy and certainly money. And and it would defeat his ultimate purpose switches to make as much money as he can before he retires. So I think he just wants to be treated fairly in some ways he feels that. And a lot of ways he feels that he hasn't been treated fairly by zone. And maybe golden boy to to a lesser extent At the same time I see zones perspective. Look they. Did Not, dot their I's and cross thirteen the way that they should have in in in constructing these contracts I think most people would agree with that. But. You also can't give complete control to the fighter to pick his opponents. because. You know the type of proponents that he'll be fighting. If you do that particularly for forty million dollar price tag per fight. So I think ultimately they'll come to some sort of resolution and they'll move forward together certainly in the short term and I don't know exactly when we'll see him in the ring I. Don't while they're refiling this lawsuit because they have to I. Don't think that we're going to be here six months from now offering about. What the resolution to this might be I I do think we'll see Canelo maybe not by the end of the year because we're already closing in October but I don't think this is going to be something at drags out in court for one two years I just can't. It's just not good business for canal. Yeah in my sense, Keith of the kind of backchannel conversations that are going on. You mentioned Cannella Age I think in a low is keenly aware of the clock that's on his career. You know maybe not the end of his career but the end of his prime years and he's looking at, you know one two, maybe three. Of the years where he will be considered. The best or one of the best pound for pound fighters all boxing, and I don't think he wants to waste those years or or even waste an opportunity to fight in the fall like I have not ruled out the possibility. Even the probability that we see Kamilo, Alvarez in the ring before the end of the year I think that's still very much possible that this gets resolved in Cannella gets back. into the mix and I think some of that is you know his age and he wants to keep his career going I think part of it too is. You know he's guaranteed a lot of money on this deal two, hundred, eighty, million dollars over the rest of it and Bob Arum said this in a boxing scene story. Recently like. Bob Does. It was like, I, don't know if the market's GONNA. If. That's going to be available to Cannella on the open market thirty, five million dollars per fight. That he's guaranteed on this zone is in the original contract. So I think that at least from a relationship between disown and Kello. I feel it's more likely than not that continues I don't know how the golden boy stuff fits in that. There's a lot more deep rooted issues between Cannella when golden boy then there are between canal zone. There are Chris but I, don't see him being able to move forward with without golden boy because again, that would keep him out of the ring and that's ultimately not what he wants. So I think they'll come to some sort of compromise. All three parties will come to some sort of compromise and it would be ideal if we could see him in the ring before the end of the year, I would mind him seeing. I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Callum Smith would mind seeing fight billy, Joe Saunders who of course supposed to fight on May Second You know those are good opponents. There seems to be some discrepancy about what is the premier event in? What is not you know Callum? Smith, is arguably the best super middleweight boxing besides Canelo if you're calling him. So I don't know how you wouldn't consider that a premier event. I'm not saying it says big love can Nilo Alvarez three it certainly is not but if he would fight Callum Smith I could understand him saying I want my full forty million dollar package, which he obviously doesn't get all of that. But they pay his opponent out of that and then on the other side of fighters like Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders have to be reasonable and realized that the endemic impacted the economy the American economy in particular in a very negative way. Of the same thing in the UK. And they'll have to take a little bit less money. But if I'm them and I it's not my money. So I I shouldn't be counting on either side. But if you're advising Billy Joe, Saunders Callum Smith and you're being asked to take a little less money than you are offered back in February or March. Where are you going to make that kind of money otherwise. You'd have to fight two or three times to do that, and if you think you can beat Canelo Alvarez, which also those very confident fighters I'm sure that they can you change your whole the whole course of your career, and then you're in the driver's seat in terms of essential rematch or demanding more money to fight other opponents. So I think it would be short-sighted and I realized you know a twenty percent haircut would be a lot of money not turning my nose up at that that type of money but I think it would be short-sighted for either of those fighters to walk away from that type of fight because we know glove can canal was not happening next. Yeah. Showtime Stephen Espinoza had some comments recently where he basically said if Cannella was available. We'd certainly be interested in signing him showtime, of course. The network that took floyd mayweather away from HBO and while that had some ups and downs, they certainly made a lot of money off because they got. Part of the mayweather. Pacquiao fight they got mayweather vs Canelo I mean they they were able to put together some big fights. Let's say hypothetically, Cannella hits the open market. What does that market look like for him? I mean as I said I think it's it's tough for anybody to guarantee them thirty, five million per fights in this kind of landscape but. How do you see something like that potentially playing out? The LOOK ESPN and top rank obviously be interested showtime in PBC clearly would be interested I I'm assuming Fox and PBC would be interested in the showtime has done very good business with Canelo before of course. None. Bigger than fight with Floyd. Mayweather. You'RE NOT GONNA. Do that type of business with anyone else of course but. But Kello the most bankable star in American boxing. Stephen, Espinoza well aware of that as his album and if they had an opportunity of course to work with him. Of course, they would. But I don't know that he can get. A thirty, five, million dollars per fight on the open market just particularly not the way. This deal was constructed with zone where you can just fight whomever you can pitch. Opponents like David, Lemieux when Anthony Durell and expect to be paid. Now that hasn't happened of course but that's part of why we are where we are with the situation but. The deal can't be constructed that you're gonNA have to find premium opponents in and I think you know there'll be a lot. They would consider premium other than just kinetic Lufkin who's going on thirty nine years old and. Who knows what's left of Connecticut love can after that savage fight against survey driving Janko so But, if they can get back on course with his own, we'll see the third canal triple g fight. That's why they signed both guys primarily I mean they. Of course, a much longer shelf life than Noggin glove conditions. But that is why they signed kinetic beloved conine figure contracts allow expect that happen. Next mayor. So if if all the parties can come together and get back on track. And if you're somebody outside of disown TR- thinking about Cannella one thing you have to factor in is that. He's not really all that interested in self promotion, right? Like it's not like he's constantly inviting people into his camps and you know doing the talk show circuit I, mean, the guy understands English clearly but doesn't want to speak it back like it's just. Certainly broadcast networks cable network ESPN could elevate his profile, but I'm not sure that it like he was English. Speaking like there might be more upside for top rank slash ESPN to guarantee that type of money. It's just. Look. More power to him like he's been tremendously successful this way but he's just very much interested in fighting, winning, collecting a check and going home like that's that's kind of I don't think makes them unique but it certainly makes them different than a lot of the guys that have been in his position over the recent years. I'm not advocating behaving that way, but some of that comes with the cachet of being. The biggest star in the sport you know He. Canal has been described by a lot of people as a diva. In some ways, the I suspect that he is I mean he's always bit Chris you've done with a lot of course from the zone side of it and previously. Whenever Canelo deals with us. From a media perspective is perfectly polite. He's he's accessible when he's there to do his media obligations never had a negative interaction with Cannella. He's always given us time in everything, but you're right he's not. Available between fights and things like that. Now maybe more. So in Mexico he isn't. Beloved Mexico Easily Norma Star there. I do think from the ESPN PERSPECTIVE ESPN deport tenders would be a very valuable vehicle for promoting Cannella in the United States but I don't know how much bigger of a star he's GonNa become even if he will add the ESPN platform and Matthys working on his behalf because he's a pretty big star in. May of maximizes value from a pay per view perspective. And who knows what pay per views are supposed to do at this point based on what television viewership is for boxing at this point Yeah. You're right about that. Be Interesting to see in the next couple of weeks how this all plays out fight this weekend Keith is going to feature Ericsson Lubin against Terrell gauchet two, hundred, fifty, four pounders in something of a crossroads type of fight. Between two. American boxers. lupins interesting story. I mean, he's he was one of the rising prospects as recently as three years ago he gets a big world title fight. against. Your, Mel Charles at Super. Welterweight. And he gets knocked out in the first round. It was a one big punch from with that. Put him down. It was a highlight reel type of knockout and it really set Ericsson. Lubin back now since then he's won four fights in a row against relatively low competition people know the name is Smith out there. But Smith that was literally his last fight and he was very much on the slide before that. Now he goes up against go. As got one loss and one draw on his resume I mean I. I want to start with Lubin because he's kind of the more interesting guy to me in this fight how do you view Ericsson Lubin? Do you look at that fight is being all right he got caught and it doesn't really change how you perceive any still is this kind of star on the rise or or is it something else? How do you look at Ericsson Leuven? I'm not sure we know the answer to that question yet, Chris. He. Clearly, the more intriguing guy in this fight is still only twenty four years old I. Think he turns twenty five in a couple of weeks. So be twenty, four on Saturday night when they get in the ring. He's a pretty good position for someone who had what happened to him happen because if he wins this fight, this is wbz elimination matches. He's already the number one contender, but this makes the winner the mandatory for the winner of the Charles So if Charles wins, he's in position to try to avenge that loss. Now Charlie was on record as saying I have no interest in fighting Eric's Mubin again and rightfully. So from Charlotte's perspective, he went in there. Perfect Punch knocked him out the first round. That business is finished as far as he's concerned. So why would he want to do a rematch? I. Do think there would be some intrigue for a rematch because of the questions you posed Chris in. That is Erickson Lubin. What happened in October two thousand seventeen against journal Charl or did he just get caught with perfectly place punch at the right time look guys get caught in the first round it happens or cotton in other rows sometimes it happens it's not coming. should that you know? Eliminate him as a as a top-flight fighter for the rest of his career. No, he's foreign. Oh since then like you said, he beatty Shea Smith who was old durable fighter and a very good fire once upon a time but was clearly toward the end of his career that they fought. His win against Nathaniel Gallimore last year, which was his last fight now almost eleven months ago. A. Gallon more out in Gilmore just got beat up by Sebastian from a couple of weeks ago but Gilmore's a big puncher. So that fight went the distance, an Ericsson Lebron won that fight convincingly and not gallimore like I said, it's a pretty big maybe not necessarily as big a puncher as Charl. The seemingly big puncher based on what his knockout ratio is a but but he went the distance with Gallimore. So I think that showed something there. If he fights Rosario winds up winning next week and I favorite Charleston that fight of. But if he wants a finding Rosario, he would fight for all three titles, which would be an incredible place for Ericsson Lubin to find himself after what happened three almost three years ago. Yeah I mean he would have rebuilt after that knockout relatively quickly I, look at Lubin as being. Maybe one fight after this away from being in a position to challenge the winner of this shirlow reside I'm with you I favor Charl in this fight. But I think gauchet would be a good win and I think I'd like to see him. I think that this will be the way plays out face another one of those one, fifty, four in that deep stable that has maybe it's a Tony Harrison. Maybe. It's somebody else. But I think one more because I mean I think we could all agree I mean I don't know how great it is. The winner of Charles Rosario, you've got Patrick to share out there with the other piece of the one, hundred, fifty, four pound title and look he's on the golden boy side of the street. But that's not one of those like impossible to make fights like money talks in a fight like that and I think to share would be happy to go across the street for the right amount of money offered undisputed championship fight but. Charlotte comes out of that maybe middle or late next year I think the guy I mean he's got a bit of a fan base people in America kind know him based on his. Early rises young amateur who kind of pushed off the USA boxing said no to the USA? Boxing team. I think it's one more I. think there's there's one more fight. If he gets past go shade if he does I think it's hard to charlotte or anybody to really avoid him. I think it will be difficult to convince Ericsson Lubinov. What you just said, Chris I I, understand what you're saying but I don't think he'll want to fight someone else. Certainly not Tony Harrison who's WHO's a tough out mean that's a difficult site and you're in position to fight for three of the four war, one, hundred, fifty, four titles it would be hard to convince him to take that type of a if like you said, if they are able to make that, Patrick terrified for all of the titles in he asked to wait I could see them getting him A. Stay, busy type of fight but not necessarily someone is good as Tony Harrison. That type fight he might be willing to do but I don't think he's going to get in there with a guy who you know a top five or six, hundred, fifty, four pounder and risk after what he's been through not getting that shot at the three or potentially four titles. That could be at stake there so I'm not sure that I hear you on money talks of course, but I'm not sure if it'll be as easy to make that attract Shera against the Charles Rosario winner. As we hope it would be because of all the acrimony between golden boy promotions now. I don't know about that. Yeah I mean you prop you're probably right there being it's. The politics of it, make it a little tough I. I just wonder where to share it goes with that belt. There's not a lot forum on that side of the street. MANGAM moved up one, fifty, forty going to do like Jesse. Vargas I mean I I don't see that. Good is his mandatory is do against Brian Costano so he might more thinking what what he might do what right what if he fought Brian Costano I would certainly favor Costano to win that fight so. We'll see if it happens I mean if you're to share her, you want a bigger fight for more money. But if he fights s Daniel Custodial, I thought beat hours lenny lower when they fought a early center last year and while he's not at the highest profile fighter, he's pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. That's the you can't overlook anybody. I guess. In fights like that, I do wonder too like if you're Ericsson Lubin. We both know Keith like being the mandatory doesn't mean Jack especially when it comes the WBZ like how I'd want to be sure exactly how long I mean example as White Dillian. WBZ doesn't exactly enforce things in a timely manner so I'd be. I'd wonder just how long they can make me wait before getting a shot at that wbz title that's got to be part of the process as well. Of. Course, they could just make them the franchise mandatory fresh. Let's just do it. Let's not. Confuse everybody got the silver title maybe can go for the Mayan. Belt as well. knob not going down the rabbit hole. That's that's a little bit too much. Support for this podcast comes from Microsoft teams.

I WANNA turn to that aforementioned dillion white for a minute. Eddie hearn announced the rematch between white and vacuum will take place on November twenty first that Keith is a pretty quick turnaround for a fight that ended as disastrously for dillion white now. Alexander Ovechkin won the fight but deleon white in a lot of ways in control of when the next one happens. He said immediately after that fight, I'll give him credit. He said, why would you the rematch? Can we do in? December. That fight now made for November there's been reports. The white is already back in training camp? What do you make of white just want to turn around and get right back in the ring with a guy that just knocked him cold. It's absolutely admirable that he wants to get right back in there as soon as possible with Alexander Prevette can. I'm not sure it's the smartest thing or necessarily the safest thing typically when a guy gets knocked out as you know Kristie us. It's at least ninety day suspension usually longer. Especially, if you're knocked out as brutally as he was not doubt I, mean you should. Be In training camp right now ages that just happened four weeks ago. If. Not. Around a he wants it. He's pushing for it. So it's not like someone is forcing him to do it. You know he he wants to get back in there and avenged this loss which which I completely understand, and again is admirable. But. They're also talking if if he wins this fight, he goes back to being the mandatory in. No no that that's not the would you don't get knocked unconscious move down in the rankings and then come back to beat the guy that you weren't supposed to lose to to begin with and then leapfrog the three people rated in between you. That's not the way it works and they keep saying it as if they. Aren't saying it as if you just keep saying it, it'll just. Come into being, but I can't imagine. Now look one thing I'll say as you were alluding to before Chris. Wb St and all the rest of them for the most part you some wacky things. So what I be surprised if they didn't re implement Ilian White as the mandatory contender as kind of a A makeup for me wait all this time and take all these dangerous fights. The had to win to remain in the mandatory. Who knows I mean they've done crazier things. So but I don't see how that would make any sense I mean transferring the mandatory spot ACTC and forth like that when Andy is ranked notch Joseph, Parker is now ranked ahead of Delia white and understand like beat Parker but I don't know that's a hard argument to make as far as I can tell. I agree with you. I would say that these latest WBZ rankings are unsurprisingly horrible A. Billion White lost and I get that you have to drop because you lost. But before that, he'd won like what ten eleven fights in a row fighting competition that is right up there with the best heavyweights in the world. And to drop below, Luiz Ortiz who? Lost the deontay wilder drop below Andy Ruiz. WHO has one quality win over Anthony Joshua which turned around and lost his next time out. Even. Even Alexander who sick who's got one win at heavyweight I mean come on. Let's. I mean these rankings they're so stupid like I'm not. I am not surprised that they're just stupid. There's really no reason that dillian white should drop what four or five spots in the WBZ rankings after getting caught with one punch he had. Gone down twice in the fourth round. He got lazy got sloppy and he got caught I, mean it happens in boxing said and for the WBZ to drop them like in those rankings like that is nonsensical to me. I. I. Understand what you're saying and you're he looked like he was well on his way to a fifth round knockout of his own. Of course, we all thought was going to happen once they'll rank to start the fifth ground. But he didn't lose A. Controversial split decision or controversial majority decision or something like that where where he clearly won the fight in Alexandra preventative one. Again, he got caught with one punch that he didn't see coming which I understand. But he was still knocked unconscious. So. I don't I don't know I mean. I'm never going to argue on behalf of the sanctioning bodies, what they're doing, but but there was a decisive loss I mean it was not a situation works debate. You know he was on his way to winning yeah buddy, but he's still got a cold. I guess my question is how different is it than Luis Ortiz who was on his way to winning? I mean he has done nothing since then anything was released. We're giving reason credit for. Being a self admitted out of shape fat guy in the ring against Anthony Joshua. I mean I I. Don't know I guess is neither here nor there because white wins against the rematch, he probably jumped all the way back up to what number one may he wouldn't be the mandatory, but it'd be the number one guy again I would assume because you'd have that interim belts. Whatever that means around as we've now, we've now officially spent way too much time talking about the WBZ rankings. That's my fault. I I went down that rabbit hole and I forgot how far it goes. Well let's take it easy on the out of shape fat guys for one it's Like, who happened to who happened to be professional boxers? Okay. Well, fairness. And he's over. The as it pertains store tease you make a good point in the sense that I never understood why Wilde Ortiz to happened again. Are happened that why that fight? Why is that rematch necessary the first fight. Yet he buzzed the wilder in the seventh round that fight wilder came back in and clearly knocked him out. He had knocked down three times in the fight. It was a definitive ending I. I didn't understand the need for them fighting. US So certainly, you know you don't WanNa see my position to get a third shot at the title after he's been knocked out twice. He was again he was winning every round against the anti wilder, but wilder has the ultimate equalizer. And did would be wilder does. More evidence at the the second fight should never have. Breaking. Trojans if you're if you're. If you're doing why you're taking a risk here like by coming back this this quickly after a knockout like that. If you do win, the reward is certainly there. He won't get that shot against Tyson theory but I've long advocated Keith that they wind up like Saudi Arabia or some. Middle Eastern country for Joshua versus fury that comes to bear. White would be terrific on the UNDERCARD. COMB EVENTS AND Give him a chance to build himself up against whatever opponent is and maybe be the mandatory for that tidal end of next year or whatever it is I mean I think it could. If he if he's able to avenge the loss and I think it's certainly possible the way he won those first four rounds. I think he could wind up at a pretty good position twenty, twenty, one, I think that's that's certainly doable for him. Yeah absolutely, and he delights a fun guy. You know people like watching him fight I mean he's sometimes he comes in and out of shape or whatever. But he you know we he's been knocked down in multiple fights, but he gets up and wins and. Derek, jeter sore fight he couldn't one the more you know. Rate fashion than he did exciting fashion. You know. So why it's always going to be a guy people wanna see and and like you said, he could he win the rematch I emphatically knocking out is in a perfect of course and I think in some ways this did this help daddy hearns caused because? Because now doesn't for the time being anyway doesn't have to talk about the billion white being the mandatory for for fury who he wants Anthony Joshua fight ends. pay-per-view view is now much much bigger than the first fight was a lot of intrigue going into this pay per view rematch. There was from I five. Oh Yeah. We talked about this last month that he was the big winner that night he can now like put down his face that says white needs to get the fight against Tyson fury and not have a conflict with the face that says we don't want white versus. Tyson. Fury. We want fury burs Anthony Joshua and I think that could could lead to a enhancement of that jaw Joshua Fury Card. Again that happens some point next summer. A couple of things I want to get to. Social, media chatter between Devon, Haney and Gary Russell Junior's been really interesting lately. Russell for some reason as kind of emerge from this cocoon and he's challenging everybody he's challenging terence. Crawford trying to punch up what four weight classes that is class. Now, he's onto Devon Hainian hanes responded by sending him some kind of term sheet Russell has acknowledged that he got the term sheet but weirdly is That it's not real because it doesn't have like a zone paycheck stamp the bottom of it. I get the sense and maybe this could already be out there by the time this podcast airs I get the sense. They're kind of moving off Gary, Russell endeavoured Hanney's Camp I think that's If it's not dead. It's on life support right now they're gonNA. Look to your again Boa for that fight for Evan Haney on November seventh. But I guess what? He made the David Haney Gary Russell Chatter, which is Kinda came out of nowhere the last few weeks. Gary Russell has become a he's been going after people the last year or so really I mean it started with tank Davis and then. You know went to terrence. Crawford Him, fighting Terence Crawford as silly. I. Mean. There's so many way classes apart but. I would love to see Gary Russell if you're Vaunting Davis Beats Leo Santa Cruz, as I think, we all agree that he will. I would love to see. Gary Russell? Fight. Toronto Davis particularly if they can do it at one hundred and thirty pounds so that yard Russell only has to move up one weight class. It's only four pounds from featherweight as opposed to moving to full wake classes off to lightweight fight him I think that's more of the fight that is likely to happen more so than the Devon Haney Gary, Russell fight because of the you know even though Gary Russell is quick to say that he doesn't contract val humidity's free to do what he wants which. Is when I just think it's more likely that will be. The devante Davis Gary Russell fight is also an intriguing regional fight when you can bring fans back to arenas that fight would be a huge draw in the Maryland DC area because both of those guys are particularly tank. Davis is a huge draw down there. Ready. Gary Russell's the no the longest reigning champion in boxing two, thousand eight. Olympian. One of the most talented fighters in the world he's always been criticized for his inactivity. I don't think anyone would argue against the fact that Guy Russell is one of the most talented fighters sport I. do think though that if he fought Evan Haney I, think he'd just be giving up too much size to Hainian heinous big lightweight. In terms of height and length whereas Davis is not he's just someone who doesn't WanNa make one, hundred, thirty pounds on the see absolutely so. I I would I would love to see that fight if Devante Davis Gary also could be made I would love to see it i. think it's again much more likely to see then Haney. Russell and I think you're right. Haney will wind up fighting Urea Yorkers, Campo which. I don't know what the point of that is exactly but. He's fought worse fighters I. Guess You could say that so. and. Gamboa's look. Gambler didn't win any winning rounds against your birthday. Davis. I didn't think but you know Davis was criticized because he allowed Gamboa's to linger until the twelfth round on a supposedly ruptured Achilles. I'm not one hundred percent sure that hit that he had a record Achilles because every other athlete I've ever seen. In Heaven think going Kevin Durant bring its NBA terms Chris from Kevin Durant out as you. Walk. Is. This guy fought for nine rounds on a rupture to kill. That seems like a little I'm not saying he didn't have an injury he did. That it was completely ruptured I'm not sure I. Ruptured Achilles Ruptured Achilles is one of the worst injuries you can have in sports because I mean different sports, different comebacks, but it takes a while to get your mobility back when you have that type of injury in the idea didn't a big David. Hey, find a ruptured Achilles for awhile and he was. Any fog. I E? Exactly and look how he was hobbling around that. There was barely anything notice I was ringside for the Gamboa's devante Davis fighting it. Until after the fight, like he was talking about it in the corner and they were mentioning it on broadcast. He wasn't hobbling around the ring, and now he supposedly is going to fight Evan Haney. Ten months later basically saw me and they've provided proof that says that it was ruptured supposedly. It gets being exaggerated loop for whatever that's worth. Maybe. It was on web. MD. where it was. Listed as Rupture I. The reason I never really believed the Russell versus Haney stop is that. Like when we've seen cross promotion stuff whether it was US Jose, Ramirez Maurice. Hooker as an example like Ramirez came over because the money was huge right? Like it was like five, six, million dollars whatever it was for for Jose Ramirez maybe more I, don't know what the exact number was. The money that at least Gary Russell was talking about demonstrating was tweeting about like a million and a half and that's good money, but it's not money that. Can't come up with to have. Gary Russell fights somebody else and then do your point save him for Gervasi Davis. So unless it was like a four million dollar offer to fight Devon Haney which ain't coming. From Eddie hearn at this point and where we're at I just never really really believed that I did see some upside to Russell taking that fight because Haney. We kind of all bill is the future potential star maybe a pound for pound type of guy but he's very unproven. He's got obvious talents, but he's still unproven. And Russell with his hand speed, I could see Russel winning that if you beat Devon Haney, all of a sudden you've got a belt semi real belts that you can carry around and maybe fudge your day at that way class as well. So I see the upside, but it just too much. There's too many reasons not to make that fight I guess then than there are actually turn around and make it. The biggest thing Chris I think from Russell's perspective is if he were to go and beat Devon Haney, I'm not saying he couldn't beat him. He would just be at such a size disadvantage I would favor him in the fight I. Don't think. But if he goes and beats, Evan Haney and Loma Chanko Beats Tia Fema Lopez. He would have the WBZ title. And he could get the rematch with Loma Chanko that he's been clamoring for quite some time. That would be as easy as past doing that. Now I'm not sure that is going to be Lopez but if if those two things were to happen, it would make perfect business sense for Gary Russell. Even if he took a little shorter money than you might suspect for Devin any fight. It would be a path fighting Loma Chanko again in that it whenever you talk to Gary. Russell and I know you have a bunch of times last year. He always gets back to Loma Changle. He wants to fight Loma Chanko again. but he's not in a position to do that now. So the different weight classes, different companies, and all that worse for mandatory that. So But yeah that that would make a lot of sense though if he if he would do it for that reason. I. Do love this new Gary Russell I actually wanting to fight for a while it just seemed like he emerged. Once, a year and maybe he's still into next year. You'll emerge once a year to fight, and now he's out there. Wonder how how much bigger he can go with some of those fighters he can challenge like a we onto. Kamilo like for his next his next challenge out there somebody in one, fifty, four, you WanNa take on. Jamaal Charles your next by I. Don't know I like the I think Gary Russell's a great fighter and I think having him more involved at whatever weight glasses good. You know he's he's an American fighter with a very interesting story. I like the idea of all this. I. Just I think I think I. Think the Davis fight is more likely to be his next big fight anything else. But good to see him back in the mix I'll be finish year Keith Daniel. Jacobs is tentatively on the calendar for match room before the end of the year, it seems like and you guys over boxing seeing have reported this. That, there are two options here. It's Gabor's Otto me former one, hundred, fifty, four, hundred, sixty. Pound World Title Challenger when he fuck off at one sixty. Against the other option there is Daniel is. Missing John Writer. Sorry. Blanking on John Rider to John Rider. Of course, the more established hundred sixty, eight pounder had a tough fight against Callum Smith. Duva, preference there I mean, is there one that you prefer more than the other as you kind of look Jacobs next kind of comeback fight on his quest to find one sixty, eight pound title. Well you know John Ryder obviously gave Count Smith very difficult fight last year a lot of people think that John Rider to the one that fight. And, then we wouldn't be talking about, Callum Smith Fighting Canelo Alvarez if he got the decision on the scorecards so he did wonders for his career by the way he performed against Helms Smith and you would like to see the from a competitive standpoint I would like to see him Danny. Jacobs. Fight Him. But. From a promotional standpoint and from how the fight will because I think it's possible that if Jacobs. For to fight John, rider wouldn't be the most entertaining fight. If he fights Gabe Rosado. One from a promotional standpoint. Abe Outta is one of the best trash talkers in boxing him in Daniel, Jacobs have gone back and forth for quite some time. Now, he's even brought some of the the Brooklyn. So to speak at Daniel Jacobson, made him go back at Arezzo say some things that any ordinarily does not stay. I think I think there's A. St-, somewhat of a dislike among them but also mutual respect underneath at all because Rosado while he has twelve thirteen losses whatever it is always comes to fight You know he's fought a lot of top top guys in usually has lost but but he he's usually. Fights he's leader. He's never gonNA lay down. So I think from an aesthetic standpoint in the ring, you would prefer to see Jacobs and Rosado and certainly emotional standpoint you would and I do think that that is the fight that we will see next for jury. That's interesting. Keep that you say that that Aesthetically Rosado is better in the ring. I. I don't disagree that the buildup would be much more interesting because there would be an incredible amount of trash talk you'd have the. Quasi. Phony separating them at the press conference and the way in all that stuff would would build up but. You know Gabe. Gabe at one, fifty, four, I liked him a little at one sixty i. just don't know what he is at one, sixty, eight, I mean I. I was in the empty arena in Phoenix when he fought in front of nobody after. The venue is empty because Chevette, and that fight against Jacobs send. Everybody was cleared out. He won but I didn't walk away thinking like. All right. He's he's built a fight at one, sixty eight got Freddie Roach in his corner, and that's certainly a positive. For him but I just look at that fight and It just seems to me like it's one, nineteen, one, nine, one, eighteen, one, ten. Jacobs in a tough fight to watch maybe I'm a little too. Maybe I've seen too much of John Ryder lately. I was at alleged last couple of fights at least his one against Boulaleh Karwi where knocked him out in that way they look yeah and he looked good in that fight and he's won his last four wins have all come by knockout maybe I'm just being. Too Much recency bias in my mind but I look at at writer versus Jacobs as being favored Jacobs, rider can fight and he might be able to pull off an upset I. don't see how I don't see Gabriel path to victory against. Jacobs. That's my only issue that. Well, that's my only issue Keith and Danny Jacobs has said publicly that his goal in these. Fights as he prepares for world title shot is to get used to fighting one, hundred, sixty, eight pounders. Well, he's not really going to fight one, hundred, sixty, one, sixty, eight in Rosado resided would just be at one, sixty eight to fight Daniel. Jacobs it's not I. Don't think that fulfills what Jacobsz publicly said is his desire in his next fight at super middleweight. To be fair to Jacobs, he didn't find a super middleweight and. cruiserweight. So maybe it's just balances it all out. And what I meant before by aesthetically I I, didn't mean that that Rosado Jacobs will be a more competitive I. Don't think that it would I just think there'd be more action in the fight and yet it could get repetitive over the course of or maybe Jacobs would stop I don't know because as you said was auto while he's extremely tough and he's there's no quitting him. He's not a natural one, hundred, sixty, eight pounder Jacobsz what's taller than him and and is. How used to it? He is the only way once but. I think in some ways you answered your own question by explaining what you explained as to why he will wind up fighting Gabor's auto. But I I look. My Gut tells me that's. That's what's going to happen. He's GonNa Wind Up. Fighting Rosado. And then rioters in a tricky position because what is he do I mean you know he obviously would a rematch account Smith but I don't think couch with goes anywhere near that I can't imagine that Billy Joe Saunders is GonNa WanNa fight him while he's trying to get the biggest day of his career events someone else either. So a ride. Unfortunate tricky position. But. What if I had to guess like I said I think Jacobs Rosado was the fight that will happen next and then Jacobs will you know? Maybe he'll viscount Smith after that but then he's got a contractual situation to deal with. So when knows Maybe a rematch but chevette junior unfinished business. You'd like some more beer in your hair wouldn't you? That was a wild scene man that was I was fortunate not to get hit I other forget like keep, Conley Manager for Daniel Jacob Standing. On An. In. The ring next to me with a ring card swatting away the beers that are being thrown Jacobsz like why anybody throwing anything Jacobsz beyond me but. There there was a bunch of guys including Keith just. Swatting, half-full beer cups going in my direction that was. Shop Shabas another one man that we don't need to get to but Chevette is like fighting this month allegedly on the card where his father is headlining with horry are saying an exhibition match as much as I hate to say it. I think we're going to see Shabas back in a major fight and twenty twenty one I think it's it's just. What he's, he's one of those guys that just won't go away and he and whether anyone likes it or not. He has named value. No matter what look farcical. What happened in that fight? He was completely dominated in embarrassed by Canelo Alvarez. Yet, he still go. Anybody's not that old I mean that's the thing. People don't realize I think he's still not that old so. You would think he's forty and he's nowhere near that so. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if because of his neck because look what happened last year people complained when Daniel Jacobs fought him yet they drew you were at the arena in California for another carbon either were in the arena. The had a nice crowd and it was I think. You would know this better than me but it was it was it was one of the zones most watched fights last year. So. Has Does numbers. He does number. So he's he's like Boehner is like the Mexican. Bronius right I mean he keeps losing. Your broiler might have more talent you know, and he's won world titles and all that stuff. But but in some ways, people want look the bottom line is it's a business and of people are going to tune into watch you fight or to pay for tickets to watch you fight. You'll always have a place amongst some promoters, some television network, streaming services etcetera. Now, that was ten thousand eleven. Thousand paying customers in Phoenix there to see Shabas junior they were his fans. At that fight and he definitely draws. So I think if he wins this fight mitigates gets one more anders belt I don't know what's going to be weight class. It's going to be at but I think we'll see chevette junior back. You know who it's going to be. Sergio Martinez you got. What weight would that be? Oh. Who knows who knows traumas is it really matter Chavez signs a contract and it just shows up at whatever weighty wants. And then the fight us for. What was it? Career. So why would? What was the Jacob said to Rosado like what? Thank you for? You made me a million I, think was his line because he was there available to fight. On that lasts fight against Chavez journalism which juniors overweight he had to pay a million dollars to the Jacobs. To to get to stay in the ring, they're wild wild boxing scene Keith as it as it always is but appreciate the time keep. Thanks. Thanks for joining me. We'll do it again soon. Yeah my my pleasure. Chris me mentality. This week's episode. My thanks to my guests as always subscribe to the podcast over apple podcast. Great Review you know I appreciate it and I'll see you next week.

Episode 26: John Olivers Comments, Ticketing, New Merch!

"Man episode number twenty cents of the pinstripe lanes podcast is brought to you by my last week of thirty three. Welcome to the pinstripe lanes podcast. Here's radio host and lifelong Yankees fan, ralphie overs. Hello there. Welcome that episode number twenty six inside season, two of the pinstripe lanes podcast. I am ralphie Aversa at ralphie Aversa were at pinstripe lanes on all social networks. And of course, thank you for rating reviewing and subscribing, wherever you found us, including of course, pinstripe lanes, podcast dot com. Did not get an episode out last week. So that's why we're dropping this one a little earlier. We wanted to drop this one last week, actually late last week and things got a little hectic in the life of, of an unemployed person like myself between the sign off of the legendary WPRO Jay, which very thankfully, I was able to be a part of late last week. And then I had to travel to Connecticut to do some work with my friends up at Mohegan sun. My first of I think two or three trips up there this month alone. Plus, we got some, some other stuff cooking outside of the podcast. For me, personally, I'm still doing stuff with dish network, and we have a few other leads as I try to move on to this next phase of my career nonetheless that matters right now as we talk things that Yankee fans care about specifically Yankee tickets on this episode of the pinstripe lanes podcast, we'll do a deep dive at a little bit into John Oliver and his most recent comments about the Yankees, a lot of Yankee fans were up in arms over it. I was not. It's and that's coming from someone who, as a big fan of John Oliver, and also someone who has had the chance to interview him a number of times you'll hear some of those interviews and this, this all dates back to like twenty sixteen. The whole John Oliver thing, but we'll get into it and just a little bit here on the pinstripe planes podcast. Some other news and notes, very quickly, something actually related to what will be talking about with John Oliver and the Yankees the secondary ticket market. We'll talk more stub, hub and a little bit. But I use gametime on Sunday night, I bought, and then sold a ticket, probably the easiest, I've done either since new Yankee Stadium opened. I mean really period for that matter. If you've used gametime before they kinda marketed, as a, a place to go for last-second tickets, and I found out why on Sunday as I was thinking about going up to the Bronx or that Sunday night loss against the Red Sox. I bought a pinstripe pass on there for, I believe. Out the door with fees, twenty five dollars, great deal, considering were going for twenty five on TicketMaster. That's not including fees. So you basically save fees going that way. And you still get your free twelve ounce beer and away you go. Well, then I decided I wasn't going to go up to the Bronx and obviously saved myself a long rainy night in a loss. You can relist on gametime you literally just tap one button, and it's backup you don't even have to set the price. What gametime does the algorithm in the app? Looks at the market looked at the listings and figures out the best price to put it on there, so that your ticket will sell them that hopefully you won't lose any money. I think I ended up losing maybe like five bucks when it was all said and done, but within a half hour, naughty. And by the way, this was like an hour prior to first pitch within a half hour of me, listing it. The ticket was sold. And I believed we're taping this on June fourth. It's a Tuesday. I believe today, the money supposed to hit my pay pal account. So where you go on that. So. Pretty cool stuff. And a good experience there with gametime. I've hit the trifecta I believe if I used to why you step up for the Baltimore game that I went to, but I've you stub I've you seek, I've used gametime and of course, I've bought tickets directly through TicketMaster as well. So by any means necessary, but, hey, you as a consumer should use all of these tools as well. Every different platform has their pros and cons depending on what you're looking for, whether it's a premium seat, whether it's a cheap, see, whether it's just you going, whether it's a big group of people going whether you're looking for shelter. Whether you're looking for included food, there's all these different options, and so it's good to have a number of different platforms, you can go to based on your budget, and your other various needs. Also, some merchandising news real quick. The stars and stripes collection is out for this year. It was a big hit last year. And you can tell that because they haven't modified last year's designed to much to this year's that said, I like last. Here's a lot better last year. If you remember for stars, and stripes, the Yankees, and I believe, by the way, they're only doing hats, this year, hats and stand socks. But the hats were all navy you had the NY with the American flag over it, and then you had the AL logo on the side, this year, you have all of that, with the exception of the Bill of the hat is red. I don't like it. I mean I guess from a fat appear fashioned standpoint. Maybe it looks a little better better. Maybe it looks okay? But as far as a Yankee hat standpoint, I mean, I, I was more likely to buy last year's hat that I would buy this year's hat, and I didn't buy last year's at so I'm definitely not buying it this year. The Father's Day caps are out as well. Now, you remember these have attentive blue to them to raise awareness for prostate cancer. I thought they were going to go the direction of the mother's day caps, which had the navy crown, and then this cool kind of pink blend for the N Y and for the Bill. Nope. They took that blend turned it into blue and made the. The entire Bill of the cap are excuse me, crown of the cap that, like Royal blue and then I believe the Bill and the N Y or navy. I don't like it at all again. I just I'm just not a fan of messing with the tradition. And I think there are ways where you can recognize these various causes in various platforms of various concerns, without having to completely change the hat, so that you have another hat to sell in your store because I think a lot of times that's what this sadly comes down to. And by the way, I think it's very interesting, we're about charity. We're raising funds this that and the third majestic hasn't done really any special jerseys this year, at least as far as the Yankees are concerned, you know, they've put the different patches and ribbons on them. But as far as completely changing the NY and or pinstripes into camouflage or pink or blue. They haven't done any of that why I thought this was offered charity. No, I think what happens if you look back. Back at those Jersey's the end up getting markdown in a clearance. And I think they're sick of losing money on them going to my point, which is this is all about money. And if it were about the charity, there would be, I think, in my opinion, more effective ways to go about this. All right without further ado, we now talk about John Oliver's latest comments surrounding the Yankees that he really doesn't like too much. However, he does have a few dare. I say legit reasons will explain next here on episode over twenty six of the pinstripe lanes podcast. Welcome back to the pinstripe lanes podcast. By the way before we get to the John Oliver comments. One of the things we should've mentioned in our opening monologue. A big piece of news that broke yesterday Monday this week fanatics acquiring Steiner sports now fanatics. Of course runs all of the pro league online shops. They run some of the brick and mortar shops as well. They powered him at least they're called fanatics experiences, and they have gotten into these sports memorabilia, business. They have been signing pretty much all the new athletes as of late. They have big deals with Giancarlo Stanton. And Aaron judge of the Yankees, I believe they had a deal with Greg bird. They might have won with Didi gregorius as well. Obviously, fanatics leveraging its space in retail to kind of bring these athletes in and say, hey, you know, you could sign with Steiner sports, and you could just do autographs in maybe like an event here and there or you can come to us, and we can do merchandising. We can do events. We can do autographs. We can, you know, we'll put you on MLB shop. We have all these different things that we can offer you and there, there were winning out. And I guess this was rather inevitable Darren Revell broke the story on Twitter yesterday that fanatics did in fact purchase Steiner sports. You know, look, I have kind of like this love hate relationship with Steiner sports. I wanna love it for a couple reasons. A Brandon Steiner's, a fellow Syracuse alum, BI, you know, he built his business from the ground up by himself, just through hard work and see, you know, as a Yankee collector, I've gotten to go to a lot of really cool Steiner events in meet a lot of great athletes through that a lot of great Yankee players, I had this, oh, nineteen piece that I'm three signatures away from completing that wouldn't be possible without all the various Steiner signings. Whether it was the first one, I went to after the championship with Girardi in a rod, or the latest one I went to which who is. Last person. I got an magazine might have been marked Shera out at Roosevelt field mall. You know, the, the problem though is that as Brandon Steiner built his business. I really think he did it at the expense of collectors literally and figuratively and at the expense of the collecting business and culture as well as he got these exclusives and raise the price in raise the price of and tried to monetize anything he could I think the way that the old Yankee Stadium was demolished. And then sold and auctioned off piece by piece brick literally brick-by-brick as I look at a brick from the old monument park that my cousin got me for my birthday one year. It did not sit well with a lot of Yankee fans. I know what I'll share the story too. I remember even meeting Brandon Steiner once and I'm going up to him and say, Mr. Steiner, ralphie Aversa, you know, at the time I was on PJ to show here in New York on PJ with Syracuse like you big Yankee fan. I believe I met him at rose. Savell field. I was there for the Decky Matsu, e signing and instead of saying, hey, nice to meet you fell. Syracuse alum, like the normal stuffy immediately. He goes into. Hey man, got a lot of great Syracuse items on sale right on the website really should check them out. And it was like, part of me in Meyer, the fact that he's always hustling. But at the same time, you gotta, you know, if you're going to sell someone you got to build a relationship, right? And so, like the idea that, that could have gone so much more differently Amway effectively for him. If he had been, you know, if he had said something a little warmer, not as like sales, many. You know, but regardless, hopefully he made some money off it. I'm reading this article now, by the way, I was wondering about this, you know, chatting about it with one of my cousin Tony one of my friends, and we were wondering if an attic, got the various Steiner contracts. And according to sports business, daily Steiner is keeping the athlete contracts, Steph curry earn Rogers, two of them. But if you're listening to this podcast, obviously, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and many more. So I wonder now if Brandon will kind of base, I guess he gives all of his inventory to fanatics, which is vast, and he's got a lot of obviously, the affirmation old Yankee stuff, and so many things from the Yankees Red Sox Notre Dame. Syracuse list goes on and on and on. But then I guess, does he used these contracts in these relationships. And does he try to do a content company alive event company? I guess there are still some ways in which he can go. There was a rather weird Email. If you're on the I think my Steiner emails at this point, go to my spam, but there was an Email sent out Monday to everybody who was subscribed to Steiner saying that from Brandon Steiner listing. His g mail Email address, and saying that he would be accepting emails to their from now on. And not the Steiner sports one so Steiner employees, I guess were notified of the sale over the weekend. And again, Monday, all of the news was confirmed so Steiner sports purchased out by fanatics. I will say, I don't think monopolies are great for consumers. However, I do love fanatics kind of taking sports memorabilia, and sports merchandise into a new era of distribution, and of pricing. And so while I think, on the outside initial, you think ause is going to be terrible prices are going to be driven up this that and the third, a lot of people pointing to this twenty five hundred dollar a ticket event that is happening later this month with Aaron judge and. And Michael K's hosting here in the city. I don't think that's going to necessarily be the case where everything I think there could be some good that comes from this as well. All right. You know, we'll transition now to another Yankee partnership. And that is, of course. The Yankee partnership was stub stubhub. It wasn't always as great as it is at the moment it started out, really, really good actually, in very convenient. And then it went through a bit of turbulent times in two thousand sixteen the Yankees decided to get rid of, paperless, ticketing are excuse me print at home, ticketing, and the Yankees wanted to get rid of print at home. Ticketing for two reasons. A it the print at home, tickets, the PDF's were extremely easy to counterfeit and be. They were not happy that the market was telling them that their product on the field wasn't great, and that they weren't gonna pay premium pricing for it, and that web sites like stubhub were allowing tickets to be sold as cheap as two or three dollars. And we're allowing legend seats, which are, of course, you know, right behind home plate and all of the crab legs and. Lobster and shrimp, your, your Harkin can eat can never want those tickets, which were going retailing. Face value anywhere between three to twelve hundred dollars. If you're buying, at face value, day of we're going as cheap on stub hub for one hundred one hundred and fifty dollars launch frosts of the Yankees of the Yankee brass, not happy about it. And so they go to the e ticketing, or the heart tickets, which is still in place. The TicketMaster resale website was the official third party reseller of the New York Yankees. And they got rid of the print at home. Tickets, lonn Trost, obviously, there was immediate pushback for this. And so he gets on boomer and carton to try to explain the Yankee stance and in the process, sticks his foot in his mouth United ticket in premium location and pay a substantial amount of money. It's not that. We don't want that fantasy. But that fan is sitting there, having paid a substantial amount of money for their ticket fan picks it up for a buck and a half and sits there, and it frustrates the purchaser, the full amount, and quite frankly, the same that the fan, you know, maybe someone who has never set in premium. Okay. Shen. So that's a frustration to our existing fan base. Now, laughing you heard in the background was the audience of last week tonight with John Oliver. We'll explain why just a second. Look, I will take Mike francesa's stance on the lawn Tross comments. And these were comments that Mike made shortly after lawns interview with boomer and carton on WFAN. I don't think lawn meant it meant what he said, or at least meant it to come out the way that he said it, I'm not trying to make excuses for him. Because obviously, if you're going to be a, you know, an exec in the most successful and most visible sports franchise in the world and you're going to get on your flag. Hip radio station, I believe their flagship at the time and make a comment like that. Will you gotta own up to it? And you got to choose your words, a little better that said, I don't think it was a matter of classism of the key saying, no, we don't want someone who would normally sit in the bleachers to sit in the legend seats. I think it was really just a matter of we don't care who you are. We don't care what your background is. We just want you to pay us the money. So long as you pay the buddy, it doesn't matter. Now you could take issue with that as well. But from a business standpoint, you can't blame trust for his comments me. And this is why I'm so against the stubhub ticket floors that are currently in place. I believe the market should should dictate what the tickets are. That's the one thing that I like about these resale sites. And that's and that's good and bad. Right. Because you know if it's a big game ticket prices go up. And then maybe you can't afford it, and you're like, oh, why are these scalpers charging so much money? But at the end of the day, if people are willing to pay it different story. And so I don't think the sites should dictate to people what they are going to pay again. I think, you know, a ticket price will be set. And then when it goes to that next market, the market should decide what that price is going to be the Yankees, obviously weren't happy with that weren't thrilled with that. So trust. I believe ended up doing an interview with Mike francesa to try and clarify his comments. But by then the damage had already been done. There was a big. I think it was a daily news of the POS instead of stub, hub, it said, snob hob because in the process of getting rid of the print at home tickets. The Yankees also got out of their partnership with stubhub and because they were going to eat tickets. They would not let stub hub have the API so that they could generate the tickets in their app. Meaning if stub hub were to stay in business there, we're going to have to a only sell hard tickets and be not have a window at Yankee Stadium. Now, if you remember, they tried to move a block away from the stadium to a storefront that was right next to the, the one the smaller Billy's. Entrance the Yankee sued them. And so then stub had a move all the way down about ten blocks from the stadium. It wasn't really that far but they were in that target shopping center. They were in the parking ramp there on the ground level. So basically, if you bought a ticket off stub, hub, and I did. I remember in twenty sixteen. I think it was two thousand sixteen. I bought a ticket, you would have to you buy the ticket on stubhub. You could use the app or buy it online. I remember buying mine through the web desktop. And then you'd have to go to this place, pick up your hard ticket, and then walked to the stadium, again, not as convenient as simply just opening up your app buying a ticket, and then scanning the app, but it was possible. Meanwhile, though, while consumers are trying to figure out how they're going to buy their Yankee tickets, the Yankees from a PR standpoint, we're just getting drilled. And the guy who kind of led the charge on that was none other than John Oliver when he did this segment on the Yankees during his HBO show last week. There's only one thing, however, that we can be absolutely sure of this season. And that is that the New York Yankees will continue funding ways to look like the biggest elitist bowls in all of sports this as offer. I came the dustings blow two hundred and seventy five million dollars on a Rhodes. A man who poses photos like this one. Oh boy. That scene from talk tonic, except this time you'll actively rooting for the sea. The Yankees even cool alleged club for elite members and their sales pitch for it is just as noxious as you'd expect as an amazing amazing hybrid fob. It's the first five rows of our stadium. We have first class accommodations five star dining in seat service. We have an amazing concierge team that assist any means that you have with the concierge, we do have our private suite entrance, which is for clients of the access to lobby in access before any of the rest of our guests. That's ROY, we provide priority Lobi access on for diamond delete members will even drive you to a restaurant nowhere near the stadium, so you don't have to Fronton always with these baseball loving peasants. I'm this is where the Yankees have amazingly found a way to even untucked annoys own fans because this year they got rid of the option to print tickets at home. And when funds complained that this will make it harder for them to resell. Those tickets online, the Yankee C O loan trust Saint hair. Posing in the exact what you'd expect a Yankees executive to pose. He went till the radio and denied those facts, but in doing so through in a comment that made it clear what he thinks of some of Yankees less affluent fans if you buy ticket in dirty premium Kate, and pay a substantial amount of money. It's not that we don't want that fan to sell it. But that's saying sitting there, having paid a substantial amount of money for their ticket fan picks, it up through buck and a half and sits there, and it frustrates the purchaser, the full amount, and quite frankly, the same that the fan, you know, maybe someone who has never set in premium -cation. So that's a frustration to our existing fan base. Wow. Rich people couldn't bear to sit next to people who aren't as rich, which which would be offensive. If you were talking about the opera much less a sport, whose primary fashion statement is the goat t. And thought he's more the Yankees, make sure no one gets into them. Most premium seating, who doesn't belong there, and that explains why so many of their fanciest seats are often empty during the season. But for the first three games of this season, at least there will be riffraff in those seats, and I'll tell you, why we bought to legend seats. In this area on the plates. Place. We will sell them to you for just twenty five cents a piece on on one condition. You must dress like you have never sat in premium location. Simply simply twins. You on a guest to the guy with the hashtag have never sat in the premium location. Let's talk for the game you'd want to attend. So that's Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, and we will pick the winners by on the looks, we like the best we legally bound to give you these contest rules as well as mentioned that the Yankees are not involved in this contest in anyway, that should be pretty off. Now. Enjoy the guideline, please give rolls all best. And so for that series, the Bronx zoo reincarnated for unicorns and turtles and number of other dinosaurs various costumes, that you saw in the legend seats right behind home plate. I believe it was that week I ended up running into John Oliver at the garden of dreams which is Madison Square gardens. Charity at their talent show at Radio City Music hall John, Oliver a big supporter of it. And so I ran into him and it was obviously interviewing people there for my radio show at the time on. P. L. J. And asked him obviously about what happened on his show regarding the Yankees as a diehard Yankee span. Do you have any more legends tickets? But I've never sat in the legends. I never sat past the moat. No. Of course you haven't. Join to keep you out successfully. So we were the first three games we're out now. What we're out and I think the Yankees are happy that we're done you get any flack from them for it. I personally didn't because I didn't turn up there in a costume, but yeah, I don't think they will absolutely thrilled about it. The thing is. It's those seats are amazing. Those seats are precious. I need for strikes that helped me to see them. Empty join every we Barrasso as a fan is in parenting, to see empty seats, especially when those seats life experience in no seats once in behind home plate of the Mets ones. I know never forget it. I don't understand for the life of me. Why they cannot fill. Those seats makes no logical sense whatsoever. The worst and it makes the stadium a lot quieter as well. You'll basically. Basically, issuing homefield advantage by having empty seats, Bill, they call it must be weird batting with, with no one shouting for you the buy. So we provide some shouting, dinosaurs, sharks, and minjah turtles. You're welcome and unicorn on some unicorns. So, yeah. They, they all had an amazing time, because those are amazing saints. So they will really have they will huge funds all the guys that we send to blast because it's an amazing experience and the Yankees should open up to more people and look especially at that time when the ballpark, wasn't packed the stadium was noticeably quieter. And I mean you look at you fast forward to twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen what a home field advantage. Yankee Stadium has become again. It makes a big difference when the stadium is is top heavy. And when that noise isn't emanating from the bottom of the stadium up as opposed to what. But it is most of the time now especially in the playoffs, by the way, fast forward. I wanna say another year or so. I ran into John Oliver again. And I asked him about the Yankees. Again, last thing before we get to the event tonight. The Yankees home opener is coming up. We'll be attending a game this year. Now, I think we'll probably bend. You're welcome go. Yeah. She'll they didn't the Yankees, a lot of things on the Jumbotron. Don't mean like great to have you, I rolled. Right. He's funny though. I I've sorry that's denial. Of course. I'm a big fan of his regardless of his team allegiances. But then, you know picks eleven was carrying the Mets game less than two weeks ago, and sitting air and one of the nicer seats at city field is the one and only John Oliver who made these comments. You're a big Mets fan we've heard since two thousand six coinciding, I'm assuming with when you're join the daily show with Jon Stewart, that's ROY. I think Joe made it pretty clear that being a Mets fan was mandatory. But also, as we will sports find in England. I knew it's just not acceptable to come to America and support the Yankees is just not. Okay. So, yeah. So hence point two phones. I was a Mets fan because I knew being a Yankee fan was the wrong thing to do morally. What are you, what are you like about the game? I just I you know, I guess I like the pace of it, it was the first American school are really go into because we had has some common characteristics with sports in England. And I just love the whole occasion. So most this my sums first baseball game. I have a three and a half year old and it's his first place we'll game tonight because he also can be a Yankee fan. You'll have other choices in his life, that's not going to be one of them. And of course Yankee fans all up in arms about why would he say that blah, blah, blah, go back overseas blah, blah, blah. But when you take everything into context, especially the fact that is, you know, the guy who gave him his big break, and one of his best friends here in the states is a huge Mets fan in Jon, Stewart, it all kind of makes sense. It was all in good fun. And besides our bandwagon is full enough anyways. By the way, audio, they're credited to HBO and last week, tonight WFAN, and of course, my old station. Dubuque Eljay rest in peace on that. All right. Thanks for tuning into episode number twenty six of the pinstripe planes podcast, please rate review and subscribe, wherever you find us.

SI Boxing with Chris Mannix

Here Comes Showtime

"This is sports illustrated boxing podcast boxing. Boxing with sports illustrated's Chris maddox interviews analysis in everything going on in boxing, and now a man who I wish was called the Boston leader. It's sort of like getting punched in the face Chris. Welcome back to another episode of the SL boxing podcast on this episode. We've got my copy senior boxing writer over at the Atlantic locked on in boxing this week. You've got showtime announcing it summer and fall slate camello Alvarez the hunt for an opponent in September is still on, plus Virgil Ortiz the best prospect in boxing. He is back in the ring on Friday on zone again to all that more with my conjure little bit later on, Stephen Espinoza President Showtime Sports Steven Talks about the summer and fall schedule. How put together talks me about the safety? Protocols are going to be in place to prevent some of these fights falling apart and just how is the relationship between Showtime Fox and How does that all work? I get into all that with Stephen Espinoza op before we get to that. Though one topic I didn't cover with, either was the news on Thursday that Mike Tyson the former heavyweight champion is GonNa Face Roy Jones in an exhibition match. In September. Allegedly in September now this fight was formally announced. It's going to air on paper view and on a streaming service called trailer. Color me skeptical that the fight actually happens. There's a lot of money that needs to go into a pot for Tyson and Roy Jones to face each other, plus they've got an undercard. That's going to include Jake Paul. The youtuber and Nate Robinson the NBA guard. I'm just not sure where all this money's coming from now there have been rumors about Tyson versus Roy Jones for a couple of weeks now maybe more. And they were looking for partners for all this. I was told that. Mike Tyson look in Saudi Arabia for some Middle Eastern money to try to make a fight like this happened. That didn't come to fruition so now. We're being told that they're going to fight on September twelfth Intel -fornia. In an empty stadium. I don't really understand how all that works now. I think there's probably a market for Tyson versus Jones me. It's going to be an eight route exhibition match they're going to be using twelve ounce gloves, probably not going to wear headgear. Can I only my colleague over at Yahoo or former colleague over Yahoo, he mentioned that Andy Foster. WHO's the head of the California Staff Commission has said that these guys promised not to go after each other like they're in their prime, but then I thought Tyson on TV this week. Saying he's going to be Mike Tyson is GONNA is only one speed for Mike Tyson so I'm not sure how all that's GonNa work, but more than anything I'm just not sure how the money works. I mean Tyson. Even though he's committed to giving the money from this to charity commands a big dollar road. Jones fought for a long time for money at the back end of his career. Getting knocked out by. Guys that were not even as League back with Roy was in his prime in far flung locations for money, so I had some money know that Nate Robinson Jake Paul aren't doing this for free so. I just WanNa where all the money is going to become. where I'm told from what I'm told, there is not a network attached to. This is going to be independent paper. It's obviously I was going to stream on that music streaming service, so I just don't know how it all comes together, but if it does. Whatever doesn't do a heck of a lot for me? Is is fifty four. Roy Jones is fifty one. Like neither one of them as anything they're fighting four of and a paycheck at this points. It's not like if one of them wins are going to challenge Tyson, fury or Anthony Joshua for the heavyweight championship. I think for Roy. Jones, there's pretty clear inherent danger there I mean. Tyson is still a beast. I mean he's still got power. That doesn't go in heavyweight fighters. Mean George Foreman was in his mid forties when he knocked out. Michael Moore in a real fight to win. A real heavyweight championship Tyson still has that pop, but if you're Roy Jones and your reflexes, a fifty one are slow which they are. I don't know you put yourself in a tough position there if you're Roy to get knocked out pretty badly. By Mike Tyson, but they'll be a market for it I mean. People still need the Tyson has great name recognition, so doesn't Roy Jones. In fact, the fact is a market for it for a fight like this and. Perhaps Oscar de la Hoya coming back at forty seven. It's more of an indictment on boxing, isn't it? But, boxing can't produce enough stars to make something like this so goofy that nobody would consider paying for it. That's on boxing. That's on the fighters. That's on the networks on the promoters build up stars. Make new make new stars you know. Make it fights like this won't draw crowd or draw big pay per view number, but. It's apparently. GonNa Happen September twelfth on pay per view. If you WANNA watch it, go forward. I think we're GONNA. Be Talking to Roy Jones in the coming weeks on this show, so we'll get his perspective on that. And maybe we'll talk to Mike Tyson before the fight actually happens, but you knew is it was looking for an exhibition about this is apparently what he settled on I would've loved to have seen this fight back in two thousand three. Two thousand three. Tyson wasn't as prime, but he was still a very active fighter. Roy Jones had just won a piece of the heavyweight championship off John Ruis. That fight back then would have broken pay-per-view records this by now. I don't know. Maybe it doesn't a decent number, but it doesn't is not of any consequence, and you know the most likely outcome. Is that they both kind of look, old and slow and everybody leave disappointed. It becomes kind of a sideshow in the sport of boxing. But that was announced this week, and I wanted to weigh in on that before we jumped into the podcast all right when we come back my conversation with my pitcher. Mike. Is here senior boxing writer over at the athletic and lot to get into with Mike. You got to get up early in southern California. To join the PODCAST. What's up, Mike? It's going on Chris. I made sure this time to not wear the eyeglasses Udine scarface once so. I work scarface ISH for. Sure. Lot to get into here Mike, and you know just this week. We had showtime announce. It's fall slate. They're going to be going all the way from August I into December. Their own sort of unofficial fight season I guess I. Give Me Reaction To to showtimes, announcements and kind of the slate of flights that you saw. Three really good fights I think in dramatic dramatic Chanko Journal versus Jason Rosario Unification on that same paper view on September twenty six, and then of course, the Germans Davis Leo Santa Cruz Fi on October twenty fourth, although I'm still not sure just how he's going to make one hundred and thirty pounds, but Those are the three best fights. Unfortunately, they're all on paper view when you look at the rest of the showtime slate. In my opinion, there's some good competitive matchups, but you're not really I would call showtime. Boxing at least will come to know during their glory gains a couple of years ago. Yeah I think I would have liked to have seen probably. One of those fights wind up on showtime. Take the the money for the. Roll the dice and try to put that on there to get a good number. I do like the idea of a doubleheader. Though that's what's happening in late, September with the Charles twins I mean I. Don't think I've seen that in a long time. If at all where you have two major cards on the same day in the same location that that could be unique experience, I'm hoping that if we can cover the fights at Mohegan sun where they're going. That I'll be able to get down there and covered because I. think that could be a different type of experience. Yeah, that'd be a cool concept for us as journalists right maybe. A story of the first card then go do something and come back and have another events actually wrestling between. That's kind of cool. As a boxing fan. I would like it to, but it's what if you're a casual boxing fan? Are you really going to take all day to watch all those fights? Then get your casual boxing fan if you're not watching the Charles. I don't know I wonder how many Abe review buys. These can do. Yeah I mean look. None of these guys have headline pay per views before, so it's it's going to be interesting in and of that, and if you've got to fights in one days that make it more appealing to the casualty because you know the hardcore fans going to tune in no matter what, but the casual fan. Are they going to sign up in one of the apartment full day? Boxing like that I am fascinated though by the Charles. Oh, Jamaal Charles Darvin Shaneco fight I mean that's a pretty good fight on paper. What did you think of the idea of? Of that and Derek Shaneco designed to take that fight, and not take or hold out for another offer from Canal Alvarez. That's something you've been reporting on for the better part of the last couple of weeks. I'm not surprised at reggae shingles going out for a couple of reasons I mean I think chiefly. He's a he's a small one. Hundred Sixty pounder, who would probably better served at one, hundred, fifty, four given the way fighters. Today's boxing really destroyed their bodies down and frankly can all Alvarez I think is the best fighter in the sport is a much better chance against your mall turlough. At least you know I I expect A. headed. So you know the the the money was good for Carmelo, but I think you offers you know charl better chance better weight, and I think it's better fight. Yeah it's. It's a good fight. I would warn Durban cheng-kuo that might be one judge already with a one seventeen one eleven scorecard for Charles Right there. You gotta go in there. You can't be a slow starter. Which Charles David Janko is Ben. During the course of his career, you can't get knocked out early like he's done a couple of times during his career to decline knockdown against both JAKUP's end. Glock, yeah. Yeah, you can't. You can't do something like that, but it's the first real test for Jamaal. Charles Oh at one hundred sixty pounds and look. It's the kind of fight. The springboard him into contention at some point over the next couple of years. I'm happy about that because up until this point I mean what it was a wasted year, two thousand and thousand nine for Jamaal Charles the fights he took whether it's Brandon Adams or Dennis Hogan I mean these are not needle moving types of fights. He had a good run at one fifty four beat some good opponents, but he had fought nobody at one sixty was gifted a belt because the wbz is an awful awful organization. So like he, he had a had his belt around his waist. But this is going to be I chance to really show, but he's a real champion. Exactly this is a chance for Jamaal Charles to legitimize himself as a champion specially in division I'll I don't expect Cannella comeback back to one sixty. He has a chance to really take over weight class Watkins Thirty Eight. And I WANNA see materials at middleweight. I think this is a guy who is thirty years old. Now. I think you should worry. Bestari's a good looking guy has the charisma. Yes, everything, do you think you'd want and he can dominate or just be? Clearly, this is the guy you said him and Canal Alvarez. That's an actual mega fi, maybe a year, or so they can build it up properly if you look if you think about it. If he can go out there and either stop or dominate Durban Janko he can say I, did something that Daniel Jacobs and Gennady often couldn't do it and go off. Can Jacobs both life and death with actually both fights? For Durban Janko in my mind Arab, check. It was undefeated and should have like. A two-time IBF. Champion I think he's he's the real deal. Mean I, do wonder how you feel about this I. do wonder how much the galactic fight of taken out of them. That was a physical fight fight of the year for most people in two thousand nineteen. I do wonder if that. Drained him enough that he might be a a weakened or lesser version of himself going into this fight. Yeah, that Tober was absolutely brutal. It's a great question I mean. We've seen so many fighters in the past engaged wars like that when they're just never the same. They get old overnight so to speak in Durban. Jingle is thirty years old now so. Bears watching we still Adam coconuts Nazi another fighter. That's managed by Keith Connolly. He was in a war with Chris Ariola. Last year. You have to wonder what took out of him going to fight so. I don't know but reading Chango like you. I scored the fight for him over. Glock ideas for the. Fight but a lot of people did was decision. So this will be legitimate. Win for even if it's not I'm sorry. Chris Meters Andrine. That's don't maybe Sata my own podcast. That's Dimitrius is going to have to fight Liam Williams in a fight that. I don't even think the Williams of the android family is going to watch at that point. It's just I can't I? Can't I need to meet your out? Even love to meet you. Injury is like like I think he's really good, but I need to see him fight someone frigging real before he's thirty five years old like I need I don't need these guys waiting forever to to to fight meters, android that would. That would drive pretty crazy at this point. You know what I'm curious about is. Showtime announced all these fights and I'm always curious about the Showtime Fox dynamic when it comes to the PGA like because I mean most people heard Bill Wenger. The executive over at Fox say on my pod last year. That effectively Fox gets what they want to have. You do feel like there's any change in that dynamic based on what showtime put out or do you think it's still? Fox gets the premium fights and showtime gets some premium fights. Think that does the latter's probably true You know it's hard to say because we haven't seen how. The world looks coming out the pandemic and the BBC Universe and I guess we'll see soon when faulk schedules. Look Weird I already know aerospace is going to be fighting Danny Garcia in November on Fox review. That's the expectation that's certainly a bigger fight than any fights showtime rolled out, and like we said earlier three big showtime advisor all on showtime pay per view now. I asked a really mattered on it. The fights on. Because it point showtimes not offering it to this strivers. What what's your take on that? Yeah I mean I think that. Look the Fox firehose that they used for the fury wilder fight I'm not sure how effective it was like they went out there, and they didn't do the traditional pay per view selling. There's going through cable operators and doing things that have been done, and there are people in this business that believed that pay per view suffered as a result of it. What they decided to do was basically used all their free media whether it's a super bowl, ad or constant run ads that were on ESPN for fury, side and Fox during football games. These were primetime placements and that fight I mean it's still underachieved when it came to expectations. For the pay per view buys, showtime has a lot of experience doing pay per views. They know what they're doing. When it comes to your dealing with these cable operators and finding the right ways to sell it to reach those boxing fans that are out there so I think if you're going to do it on pay per view I don't think there's much downside to going with showtime because they have just as much experience as Fox and doing this stuff. Sure. Surely you're right on, not I. Just wonder what that means for showtime's offerings like all right you at the subscribe to showtime. You're not getting notes. Lights on showtime fight on showtime I look at it. The best fight is nor do you believe versus no Neto Donayre, a hundred and eighteen pound title fight in December other than not is a lot of fights that you, maybe CFS, one Eriksson Limited Rostro got. These aren't needle moving fights to speak so I am excited. See with the Fox was gonNA look like, but there's a lot of names and you can see who's going to be there right He. Thurman probably in a tune-up. Trump water probably a tune-up. You're going to have the aerospace ZANU PF fight on pay per view. You know that wilder is going to be a Fox. ESPN pay per view in December awesome changes there. And so. I'm not sure which really changing without Fox showtime dynamic. Yeah, no I agree with you there. When it comes to showtime, needing to put top level fights on the network, so that subscribers who are subscribing for boxing reasons. Get, their money's worth think Fox. Even though they're not subscriber-based, has the same damn issue with? Everything good everything. Good is on paper view which which drives me crazy. Says on this podcast over and over again like just try one event one big event using all of your resources and putting on Main Fox and see if you can do the kind of number that would warrants. The kind of maybe not now's not the right time to do with advertising being what it is, but you know, put it on May Network Fox at some point, see if you can do a massive number by promoting it on college, football or wwe Friday night smackdown. Do that kind of stuff. I would. Definitely veering off course there, but that's the kind of thing that I would like to see. Fox ultimately do. Yeah. I think that's the big issue. Boxing has been for thirty years at least with the collaboration of pay per view. What of rating would Yonsei wilder versus Tyson fury join ESPN are Fox I mean huge. Huge right maybe those ten million I, Dunno immediate shows the networks advertisers. That boxing is legit sport. To sport like golf or tennis, we have four and full major so to speak a year. Now all the good bites right Charlie Adobe and SHANECO that'll be a big rating, too, but instead of celebrating our fight now fans to ruin your being able view, Dad. Maybe you're a fighter to make up for some of the guaranteed purse off a pay per view to kind of you get sponsors more involved in if you wear Nike, trunks with Nike wanted to be on, you know the the the shorts of Tyson fury or the gloves or the wilder I mean you. There's ways to get creative with all this without going traditional route where you're just basically just bleeding. You're diehard fans. To pay for for this type of fight, but it doesn't sound like we can talk this tour blue in the face like it doesn't sound change anytime soon. There's this dynamic is is going to continue exists you mentioned? Garcia I'm fascinated by this because I look. I credit spence for one to jump into a big fight after coming off that horrific car crash, but I've often questioned the wisdom of it like your. Spence! are dealing with a mouth injury catch from sparring for months and months at a time. Don't you WANNA come back into the light hitter and get your your proverbial feet wet back into boxing, but I mean. Are you convinced that Spent Garcia? Fight still happens in the fall. I would be pretty surprised if one the Fox late is a mouse. That's not that's not your marks for November some some time November united you know things change all the time in boxing. Up to the last minute, but that's the expectation. Aerospace has been insisting behind the scenes, and publicly that he wants opponent dot by Danny. Garcia was originally going to be January twenty fifth at Staples Center in L. A. on Review. that. was that was a dumb deal. Then spent had the horrific car crash and pandemic it so. I think it's a great though. I think it's a great fight. I'm just curious you know. How much of a financial hit or are they going to have to take to make that fight happened? I mean they'll get you know the pay per view revenue off of it, but Spence Garcia. Would do in California or Brooklyn or even? Texas but it's I guess north of four five million dollars at least for. Data. That's that's money. They're leaving on the table. That's why it surprised me like I thought that. Maybe Spence would use this pandemic as a way out. Nobody needs a way out, but as a way to say you know what we can't do a live crowd there. It's GonNa cost me a lot of money. I'M GONNA fight. Some version of Ivan read catch you know in my in my comeback fight, and and now Danny Garcia in the first quarter of next year. That's that to me. I always wondered if that was going to be kind of the escape hatch for. Garcia no crowd, so we can't do a fight of that magnitude. Yeah. I mean that's a great question. I mean you look at a fight draw the Davison Leo Santa. Cruz Jonty did crowds in. Three different events spanning the US last year certainly at Staples Center Santa Cruz resides a in southern California, that would probably do it easily over ten thousand. That's able center so. I credit PBC there. Will you I understand the economics understand why these fights hats April you? He hasn't probably making insane money. But Yeah I, just too bad that we have all these fights on pay per view, even though we understand it mean looking single. Lopez, that's another fight that if it happens, it's going to be on pay per view. Yeah, yeah, that's It's unfortunate because the those types of fights need to be shown to the broadest possible fan base to grow the sport and now is. Is the time to to put on those types of fight when so many people are at home watching television looking for something interesting to watch and when you get into the fall, I mean man. You're going to run into a lot of sports that are ongoing. What's NBA NFL Baby College Football? I mean you're just GonNa have a lot of competition on the Saturdays. For those types of all right, let's talk about the biggest name that still is without an opponent, and that's canal and Mike. This feels like Deja Vu to me. It feels like last year all over again. When at that time last year can mellow was still trying to hold onto his title fighting somebody else. Golden boy came back and author. Dmitri's androids name out there. Ella was eventually stripped of that title. It wasn't something that pleased him. Certainly when it came relationship with golden boy, and now here we are in mid two almost late July. And we still don't have an opponent for September twelfth twelve date for canal. Alvarez, what do you know about what's going on behind the scenes with these negotiations? Your Callum Smith Right now is the clear front runner fight no Alvarez in the fall. Zones first choice he's canola first choice and he makes the most sense is the. He's regardless of the best one hundred sixty pounds during the world's. He was using the running for that fight back in February when they were talking about me second. But you know he's he was altered. Five million dollars told, and she's asking for six million, so. A million dollars doesn't sound much apart, but maybe it is in this reclaiming. I don't know. What I. Do know what you said is it's never easy when it comes to securities, Co. opponents, and now that's temporal state is jeopardy were. Russ than sixty days out, obviously even though there's no tickets to sell to not reviews to sell zone still needs a diaper strivers, and that's certainly the biggest money they can do probably all year. Any chance of probably promoted so I question about the. It's GonNa move now, but I do think when it's all said and done, it will be count. Yeah I mean I. Count Smith while. The blockbuster type of fight maybe or the elite five. Would represent I mean. That's still a high level. Fight Count. Smith is no joke I mean depending what you thought. No matter what you thought about John Ryder in his last time out I mean cows, myth is a big super middleweight that you can make a strong argument is the top guy at one hundred sixty eight pounds for? That type of fight would be a significant test I think he'd be the favorite in that fight because I think his body attack is relentless and I think he'd wear down a Callum Smith, but I mean that's a. that's a really good fight. I mean look I don't agree with Delahoya on much, but I do think there's something to the argument about these fighters pricing themselves out of fight like just because Callum Smith can make five or six million dollars to fight. It doesn't mean he's worth that much money. This was kind of my argument Mike. Mike when I was thinking about. Derek Chaco and look what he whatever he was offered. Three four million dollars, whatever was, he was offered for that I mean I think more fighters need to bet on themselves because if Callum Smith Beats Yellow Alvarez. He probably fights in the UK in front of like eight thousand people at Wembley and makes like fifteen million dollars the next time. Right think these fighters to a degree have to start taking more risks when it comes to fighting a canal betting on themselves more when it comes to canal and taking. The most money they'd probably ever make, but not premium money just because they're the name that's on the marquee next to Kamilo. Cal Smith, for example should certainly get as much money as he can get off the table, but not yet it. Should he fight over like you're you know if you can get five million, which is already offered grade, get the five million or something around there. it's not worth killing the fight over getting what you deserve. I don't think it was like you said even, if you four months still to get another bigger fight where it whether it's someone like Daniel, Jacobs or billy Joe Saunders. As long as he's not signed a brutal knockout and one-sided by know how his brother Liam. But We saw this mayweather. Right anytime fought anyone. They got crazy money Victoria tease. anyone so Oscar from Houston with himself and unfortunately there was a bad precedent, said probably. Dana Jacobson Cobra, of getting these eighth of your packages now don't have to reset the market so to speak gold though I. It's funny. You mentioned Mayweather Ortiz I I had heard Ortiz at the time had terrible deal for that mayweather fight like how know what the exact numbers were. I had heard Ortiz took A. I mean a couple million bucks to fight floyd. Maybe there was upside to it on the pay per views I. Don't know, but the guarantee was low low low for daugherty's, but but you're right in general i. mean you guys see guaranteed that can gets or floyd mayweather gets, and they insist on. I just think if Kevin Smith really was. Smith really does have a hard offer for five million dollars. He can't let that get away like he's not going to make that his next fight. He might not make that. It is next three fights combined when you consider what's going on with this pandemic. If that kind of offers on the table, take the fight, go to the US. And like you said even if you lose with a good showing, you're going to be able to bounce back. Take another take a comeback. Fight the next time out, and then you're backing world championship contention, maybe even stepping across the aisle to fight a Kayla plant or David vs with somebody in two thousand twenty one. Yeah. It's hard to say what Harper's arm boxing i. mean you know how negotiations go? Throwing numbers around me gets impatient, says all right enough of this. WE'RE GONNA go to somebody else. We saw so many names thrown around I mean. Some of the names were offensive hazing. Ryder to lesser extent since he did have the night former against. Callum Torreon Johnson stop like no one's watching no sites. I don't think zone wants those fights and. I give maybe it's a leverage point I. Don't know, but you're. Callum has to just take this fight. Matter can't let it support. Now, he can't I'm with you. It is borderline offensive to suggest that like you can put Kello and Jason Quigley in a fight or Kamilo and Toronto Johnson and fight no disrespect of those guys they're. They're solid fighters and Terry out of turnout certainly had his issues with opponents along the way, but I mean that's not a callow fight like it's just not, and you can't expect people. People don't just tune in. I. Had this argument Sergio more all the time Sergio things? People are just tuning in to see canalside anybody I. Don't believe that I don't believe that's the case. I don't think they're. A magnetic fighter, but they're not tuning in by the hundreds of thousands to see him fight Jason Quigley. He'd knock out in three rounds of Torino Johnson, who might make it like seven like that I? Don't know that to me. That's that's that's nonsense. I'm totally with you. Here are some degenerate box events like US watch any fight, but the majority of People WanNa see big matchups with some hype around it bubbles up. They don't know Jason Quickly as Callum Smith. Even if they don't know who he is right now, they would find out quickly. You know it's a big fight hype around it. They were just big knockouts. And it would be great for the global service over in the UK. You can get Eddie hearn involved in that promotion. You have edie. Edie had had some people believe Iraqi fielding at half a chance by the time that promotion, or so it's it's always good to get another mouthpiece behind it. would. Ask You about you spoke to. Ryan Garcia recently about his relationship with golden boy. I mean Oscar de la. Last week and he downplayed any issues kind of called it family I mean. Do you look at that relationship as being salvageable I mean I've talked to Ryan a bunch of times i. read your piece on it. I get the sense and correct me if you think I'm wrong, but I get the sense that Ryan Garcia really watts the relationship to work like Ryan. Garcia is still. Kind of looks up to Oscar and away once Oscar to act like the big brother or the promoter that he thought he was signing with at the time. What's your takeaway on the future of that relationship? Ryan's was very upset. That was a few weeks ago now and get the Campbell. Fight which I doubt, I'm Kinda doubtful that actually going to happen, but we'll see maybe everything. Go Away so Ryan really not an Oscar last year only to show hugging at the press conference in La. You're right. I think it comes down to more than money. I think this is about respect for right. He's adamant that he tried calling texting DNA. Oscar multiple times when Oscar would not only back answer next thing he saw was a tweet, a couple of tweets where Oscar was pretty much propping birger Ortiz his expense of here. This is now a real future Fox News. Obviously there's a slight so. Is it salvageable I think golden going guys it ostriches. Truthful and just be real emotional better than Austin. All things fighter. No I can fix it. Yeah, he can fix it. All the one of the one of the questions I have is like I mean how. Who who's in the right in the situation like it? It's true that you know to fights ago Ryan signed a deal that his attorney at the time called the richest. For Prospect I don't know what it was, but he called it that. And now two fights later in the middle of a pandemic. There's a dispute over money I mean. How do you? How do you adjudicate kind of WHO's in the right? WHO's in the wrong in this situation? I mean that's that's kind of tough to say. I would say in is the fence. He's one of the few needle movers in sport. I hear people say all the time Oh we're just social media following I. do believe that translates you and I were there in. Anaheim Valentine's Day when Ryan. Boredom was ten thousand on a Friday night. He translate, so yes, his thing is yes. There are some big bonuses not deal, but there's minimums fighters all have in their contracts negotiated fights. Alicarte, so Ryan wants more money. He doesn't. He's asking for crazy money. and. I think more than the money. Though is the respect factor Oscar not answering Oscar taking shots on twitter Oscar, just not communicating so. Doesn't help that anyway. No, so in Oscar got relationship. An Oscar also has a really bad relationship with Conoco. Who Trades with Ryan? All one big mess. I mean Ryan I hope he gets the Luke Campbell fine if he gets, it's because Eddie. HEARN Kinda put the money on the table to make it happen like that's. That's probably the only way a fight like that ultimately comes up. That could be the kind of fight that could spray. That's fight if he gets that one LEU. Campbell's no joke I, mean he's not elite I don't think, but he's fought well against top level opponents. That is a big step up. For Ryan Garcia I'm with you i. just think he does want the respect from Oscar I think. One of the bigger mistakes they made was tweeting about it and taking it into a public forum. You can say it's a family squabble. All you want, but if you're kind of bad mouthing your guy on social media that just that just doesn't fly. With these guys and I think look ten thousand people. I mean you're you live in southern California? Nobody's driving Anaheim on a Friday night. Like they're just not. They're not like. It's not ten thousand people is no joke. In an event like that Ryan Garcia is proving himself as a ticket seller and someone that's going to be a huge drawn this business for years to come as long as talent. Backs all that up? Let me finish with this mike the. Friday Virgil comes back gets back into the ring and he doesn't have the charisma of Orion Garcia, but the talent is kind of undeniable I'm not forget Samuel Vargas I'm not really a big believer. This is going to go longer than like five rounds I. I just think Vargas every time Vargas steps in with the top level pony gets knocked out or blown out. Whether it's aerospace obtaining Garcia. I mean. Amir coty knocked down that first round, but then he lost like every round after. Lewis fought, but that was the back into Collazo's career. What do you think of Ortiz? As as a prospect I mean he was everybody's prospect of the year in two thousand and nineteen. But how bright a future does Virgil Ortiz have? Think. He's another guy similar to what you mentioned about Charl and Andrea, you know obviously there are far more communist regional. You'll know. Yeah with Virgil Ortiz, he definitely has power. He definitely is a very competent fighter offensive skillset. I don't know what his Chin is like I. Don't know I. Don't see the events yet. So unlike see kind of a slippery guy or a big puncher organising. Really GonNA show us much, but he's really promising I mean the problems golden boy has securing opponents or squabbles of their fighters have very challenged sable. Yeah I mean having but who who do you want? That's the thing. Like golden boy to that of the midday have see. In their stable and those are. Garcia for his talent and his drawing power and Ortiz finding at Welterweight at away class. Where you can you know that is a popular way class I mean that there's a lot of room for growth with Virgil Ortiz. Killing, maybe get versus terrence proper next year I mean I know these things happen in boxing where these guys are rush so to speak, but I wanna see more of it. We see in see all the time, but if we did I coffered in next fall for example and maybe Robert wins the really. Ruin Virgil Ortiz. I don't think so. We saw floyd they were there. Play with Pinerolo. Can Own out I. Mean you wish that more fighters kind of understood that that a loss is not debilitating I? Mean you get paid good money for these fights? If you lose, you, move on. It does seem like and you talk to him. It does seem like Grand Garcia has the attitude like rang our. Take, on all comers type of fighter. He's not interested at all in protecting that zero, so I hope that translates as we get into twenty twenty one and we see these big fight sooner rather than later whether it's Ryan in with Devon Haney. Tank Davis involved. In that mix. I'm still waiting for tank Davis. Show me that he's the talent that that backs up. The popularity. I mean he's he's most is best. Win was probably what Pedraza and his career that was. That was impressive win. But like it's being billed his December fight as being for two titles, neither one of those titles is real like they're not like Galileo Santa Cruz. Fought for the super title, but that really wasn't. He jumped the jump Cancio at the time for that title. Same thing with your body Davis nobody believes Germont Day was the one hundred thirty five pound champion anything. Those two fighters are. Who are hold? Those belts are gonNA fight in. In October. I'm curious to see what. Day looks like when he steps into a major fight it does he have the talent? You have the power, no question but one thirty five. Does he have the talent that reinforces the popularity? I WanNa see that too, and also decide hundred thirty pounds, Kenny, Nick One thirty the big question here. What happens. I think what happens doesn't Leo moves up for the money and takes the money and like one thirty three and a half. They'll say well. It's for the thirty five title as well so they can move up. Move up a weight class here the question. I would have and I talked to Fema Lopez about this earlier today like Taffy Mo- made clear that for a big fight if he if he beats Lama Chanko huge, if but if he beats Janko, he'd. He'd be down for staying at one thirty five for a major fight against tank Davis. Chango has made it clear he'll fight tank Davis at one, thirty or one, thirty five like if that fights on the table for tank Davis in the first half of two thousand and twenty one like does he take it or do we still the same crap about like network problems and I'm not on your timetable all that crap that we hear when it comes to. Tank at this point. Yeah I mean you said say? He has incredible power even though he doesn't talk much, he has great following. He doesn't move the needle. There's something about him I. Don't know if I'd call it charisma, or what has it? and. Hill Santa Cruz? CRAZILY is my toughest opponent on paper I can't see Santa Cruz at the shop. I only shopworn, but. Certainly not as trying point after all the wars. And other guys France. As long as you're, all takes care of him in dominant fashion. I would hope we're going to see him against the likes of Chanko or team Oh. I WanNa see what he has and that's. It's really saddling that. We have this this quandary. I'd all these fighters just which they have, we should know by now. They're all right around the same age you know within a couple of years of each other like they should be getting in the ring and these round robin type of. I think I don't know about you but I. Think. Durant probably walks through Santa. Cruz, I think shop warns the right phrase the right word when it comes to to Leo. You and I are both at that last fight in Las Vegas. That he was at, and it wasn't all that impressive. He has been in a lot of wars over the years and fighters like that have a finite shelf life when you couple that with him jumping up to away class, he's new AD and probably isn't physically bill four. I mean I I would. If I'm picking anything in that fight, it's Davis mid round by. Knockout I think that's that's that. Has that kind of potential? I think I'll go saint. Take the only thing I could see giving drowsy problems perhaps. Is this Leo Santa Cruz? You know those thousand hundreds of bite usually and drowned as a guy that sometimes struggled with activity, so maybe seal around that way. We haven't really seen Leo Santa Cruz hurt. Has He been knocked down? I'm not sure. But. Yeah I don't know he's one of those. People always crazy about his fights I'm not biggest fan of his you fights as Punching, you just see two guys, you know furiously treating and. no-one sitting on their shots. It's just like lot of armed forces. He could fight. Abner Mars himself like like he could find Abdul Morris like five more times. It'd be the same exact thing like they just be like throwing bombs at each other and abner wooden win like I don't think abner can like ever beat Leo Senator I. Just don't think he throws enough like he throws punches, but Leo throws just enough more to give him the engine those situations. Yeah and I think that your asked performance was kind of underwhelming Boa is what you'll gave people more interested in its fight which Santa Cruz maybe have a shot. But I'm with you is he's probably too small drawn to strong. And you know it's it's sucks that we always talking about Oh the next fight. We have this fight. Yeah I think we need to see those. Soon in two thousand twenty. One is probably the the best time to the only time. We're going to get chance to ultimately. Get to do it Mike, Appreciate your time. Man Follow Mike on Twitter at my coppins. You're listening to Mike and our friend Lance pug. Myron the PUCK COP boxing show as well good stuff. Mike always great to catch up with demand. Thanks Chris I'm glad you're out of Cardi over. Again. Joining me now on the show, he's the president of Showtime Sports. A self styled international raconteur whenever the fuck that means. Stephen Espinoza. Joy. I know this is going to be hard, but. The most overused word of twenty twenty is. Bubble. So. Let's see if we can get through and I know you're you're in one being aware establishing one, but see how how few times we can mention the word Bubbas. We get through this. I've been the NBA prefers. If you call it a campus, so maybe we'll go with campus figure for that. Even though nobody else will call it that it's like one of those nicknames. The League's trying to ram home, but it. It just isn't GONNA fly. Bubble is just the attorney memories adopted. They're never going to have it right. so you announced your schedule a strong slate of fights that'll take you all the way through the end of the year this week, and let's start there. Just just tell me what you're most excited about with all this I know. That, every I think every boxing programmers dream is to announce kind of a season or a schedule. Something like that. You want to give your fan base some look forward to the take me through the last couple of weeks and months as you were kinda putting this together. To be honest yet, you're right. I think it does a lot for the sport. Does a lot for the fans Helps our marketing and our marketing partners but every time I do it immediately after a you minus reaction is. Let's never do that again. because it's I mean the thing. Is Keeping everybody quiet? Because of course arts date in opponent, you know they want to announce it. You know and it's awkward when to keep secrets especially when their fans are hitting him up when he fighting when you fight it. So he Secrets are difficult Really I think it's I. Think it's worth it. you get a sense of. You know how the big picture you lines up like I think without doing an extended schedule. We wouldn't see. As clearly. You know things like maybe the The. The emergence of you. Bantamweight in junior other way you know there's also there's a lot of talent there who with with young guys and Atlas, guys and we're going to have a lot of them. Bantamweight junior waiter. Didn't exist in our network couple of years ago now there's some really intriguing bites, and some young guys like know like a lusty Fulton. Who's in her show? So I think you know it's a pain. It's difficult. It's it'll give me ulcers in sort of like I guess the closest thing is. It is a little bit like Like a wedding, it's sort of like author. Put this guy here like you know. He's not gonNA that doesn't make sense on this car. Let's move it there, so it's a lot of. A lot of index cards and whiteboards. As you were were putting this together and you know dealing with the finances of it. How much did the pandemic impact that I? Mean showtimes business your budget I mean. How impactful was that on your ability to to make fights and how you kinda line things up whether it was on pay per view or on showtime boxing. Look, that's that's a reality for for everyone and. I think. The most there chewed direct impacts that it has number one is no one is really sure until you get really close to vent exactly. How much more expensive this is gonNA be. you know it's it's a whole range of things you need to bring the crew in earlier, so they can test in advance so you now instead of paying for two days responding maybe four or five days you know there's extra personnel security. There's the tests themselves so. No one's really sure until you get the bill. I think we're week out and I think I have a good sense of what it's GonNa cost and and I would say it's probably you know anywhere from. I'd say about twenty percent. Twenty to twenty five percent more expensive So you know know shows don't cost a million. US The cost a million. At South costing million quarter million three. In the second is you know I think? Companies in periods of uncertainty. For back on spending. You know we don't know how the economy's GonNa, Affect People's income. Let's not spend as much Fortunately boxing showtime was able to avoid. The schedule and IT IS A. It's a full year schedule. We did not cut any events. I think by virtue of the calendar made. Up less show box events, but that's really just a function of. Being, able to call and everyone. So were fortunate there certainly. Cuts elsewhere and financial pressures but programming or sports is one area that that escaped unscathed. I wonder you know how a network like a subscription network showtime would be affect. YOU'RE NOT AD. You know driven. That's the big thing absolutely. And you know we saw some. Some really good activity in business wise immediately when things out like all streaming services networks you know depending on the network. Some of that is faded for us. Thankfully, it still going strong. We've got a really strong one program so far when you get back in production and get things original series back on the air. But it's a big plus that we're going to have boxing coming coming back. So when showtime was when you were talking about coming back, the original landing spot was that was being publicly discussed was California sound stage. Some kind of room that you'd find. Did you make the transition from from that potential area to where you landed? Which is having at least ten tentatively scheduled up all your fights at Mohegan Sun. This year Yeah I. Really would have liked to explore the the sound stage we were. We were pretty far down the road on that. In really where the complications were union issues The there are. Union you know when you go onto a set general asset on a on a lot in generally, it's a union set and it doesn't always Compare apples to apples to apples, terms of those unions and what we do on live sports, production you know, and in the grand scheme of things. We had some things that needs to be ironed out. But I'm not sure that we would've gotten a whole lot of tension there's. The unions and guilds are engaged in. You know marathon talks right now just to get series production on the air. We wouldn't have been a priority. Hey, can you negotiate special exception so we can do boxing on the CBS lot. You know it. It seemed like a lot more trouble than he was going to be worse and really bad timing. To do that, so we looked elsewhere we looked at Vegas. Vegas was really busy with UFC and top rank, and there are some concerns with the commissioner of whether they could have an personnel. Because we really wanted to partner with Bella tour, that was that was key for us. I mean it makes sense you know Sorta synergistically, but there's some real cost benefits so we knew we wanted nine or ten events over twelve weeks. And weeks, which means we have to be there exclusively, so we had to go somewhere where the venue was going to say here here you can move in this day and age continuously so we're only loading in once. Only loading out once we came up with a production lighting structure that is basically very similar for Ma and oxo. All we have to do week to week to switch the ring for j.j So once you went that and once we figured out, we wanted to go to a one stop shop. You know there's a limited number of places there's there's Vegas in which eliminate that there's there's a handful of others. Are you. I mean when when it comes to crowds in the venue, are you? Are you going at this thinking. They're all going to be crowds all through the year or you go, if if Connecticut loosens up and Mohegan. Sun Loosens up. You're going to Sarah as much as they'll. Allow will put in there. We're going to keep an eye in and. Be Flexible if it, Connecticut Opens Up New York State opens up or or anywhere else. Because you know everyone that's on the schedule has committed that they'll fight without fans a ruin would also preferred fight in front of bands or the vast majority will, but if that's not possible, though afford. But, initially we know we're at Mohegan if things took a turn for the better, and we can be in front of crowds. Then you know we're all for. Did they have any more flexibility because they are a native American reservation. Are there anything of the things they can do without you know state of Connecticut approval. There are some ways in which I wish. That were true. For example ill, one of the curve balls got thrown to us. Is Relatively in this process the tri-state Area Newark New Jersey Connecticut imposed. State restrictions on travelers coming from other states. We got quarantine for fourteen days coming from one of the hotspots states. Well right now. Connecticut is defined. Twenty two states is hot spot states. Including California Texas Florida. So all of a sudden. We Have A. Extra requirement gone, which says you can't come into the state, and unless you're gonNA, stay in your room for fourteen days I'm thankful you there. There was an exemption that Labor put into. into. But one of things we said initially as well you. We're technically were not doing this event. In Connecticut, it's on solid land sorta like well. Yeah, if you, you can helicopter straight in to the Mohegan Sun, maybe you can avait Connecticut executive orders, but you're going to land at airport. Drive through Connecticut. You've got complain. And it's a week we get. To See you driving the showtime bus down like a back road to avoid. Giving State, troopers! The. What are the unique things you're? You're doing on September. Twenty six is having two major fights on pay per view both Charles Brothers Adriano one hundred fifty four pound champion Jamal. He's GonNa title at one sixty, both fighting on different cards on the same shows. You pointed out earlier on your media. Call that look. It's going to be separate under cards for each show. Separate basically separate everything for each show I mean. How did you come to that decision? Why does that make sense? To do as a pay per view well, our original idea would which wasn't really all that ritual. Since we we took it from. WWe was to do tonight. Pay Per view as ww had done for a League Wrestlemainia so Friday night. One Char Low titlefight Saturday night one. Trello title fight with under cards in all one price. We ran into the same problem that wwe did which is why they went digital. Only on paper view is that for Cable and satellite operators? There's a there's a technical problem with leaving a pay per view window open for forty eight hours instead of just twenty four. So. You know without taking away. WHO said well you? The next best thing is, let's just turned into a doubleheader. On it's nontraditional, but I think it was important for us to really. Over deliver on the value right now I. Think A to get people excited about boxing again and be. As an acknowledgement that. There are a lot of people who aren't a or having difficulties. Financially and it'll awesome pay per views, a real high on the list of must haves. You know if you're unemployed and otherwise so the reality for those who are able to buy up to make sure we're delivering value here in in I think between the two title fights, two other world title fights. You know it's. It's really really solid card. How big a risk do you think you're taking with these pay per views because the pay per views are solid fights. I think Charles Durban Janko could be great there. She never in a bad fight least. I haven't seen him in one anytime recently. Charles Rosario is a significant fight at the very least resign big puncher then tank. Davis is a popular guy and Santa. Cruz is a name, but you know during pandemic. Where whereas you put on a couple of times before finances are an issue out there I mean what kind of thought went into would into all of that and you're having guys headlined pay per views that Frank. They haven't headline pay per views before there. There are a lot of risks from. One of the risks is. We're. GonNa have a a false sports calendar like we haven't seen before And that's GONNA. That's GonNa make a difference. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA have. Everything you know unless you things happen. Unexpectedly in in terms of other sports, but we're GONNA have so much in the fall. That's going to be a problem the. The overall state of the economy, People's willingness to have discretionary spending. It's definitely a risk in everyone's taking a risk. The the fighters the promoters network. in hoping that will work I. Think there are some people you'll probably with. Maybe a little bit more discretionary income. They're not eating out as much and are going to the movies much traveling as much. But. There's a lot of people who are having financial difficulties so. This is one where everyone look at it and said well. We're going to have to take a little bit of riskier to make this happen. These are the right fights to happen to the sport there for the Charles Careers. So you know, we'll take the risk or not going to back off and it. Only will hope for the best and I think based on the initial reaction. I think there's a lot of enthusiasm. The biggest challenge you probably faces making sure the schedule comes off as planned I. Mean You know top rank? Put their schedule together, and through no fault of their own I mean they had good protocols in Nevada. They worked with the commission in Nevada I. Mean It's I've read the protocols that pretty solid and they still it seemed like every week. We're losing a fight. Sometimes the headline, sometimes the same fighter twice in these situations I mean. Did you learn anything from from that and? Are there any changes that showtime and the promoters involved will make to try to ensure that that doesn't happen to your shows. The. Will. They're going to be positive test. It's almost impossible to get through ten weeks without somebody testing positive in Ambala for is already had one one of the things that we. Looked at and learn from I hope is. Increasing the amount of prefight testing for fires. because the the hope is that. You don't have shit a couple of days before the white, but maybe a week two weeks in a so so. Talking about guys on August First Card Ngelo Leo and even Fulton You know as well it's. Not The second because that one was replaced, but in terms of the guys who've been on the car for. Eight weeks. Each of those four guys have been tested at least five times array. at the outset of the campaign weekly as we get later into. It doesn't make you perfect but our hope is that we're catching them. Earlier in the process, so we don't get surprises fight week the second thing is we are? Either Keeping people on hold you know paying them to train or actually the promoters thing them to train and be ready. or having a very small number off TV fights to provide a you know a good level ponant, so you don't lose remainder event. so that that's part of it and the other. You know I feel really bad for Jim. Herring you know in, you know it was really puzzle to him. you know I think our protocols? We wouldn't have turned around so quickly. you know you really? There's a lot of advice coming from the NBA's you that you really shouldn't be exercising with an active infection so if you take that in in one place as possible, it's going to be a significant period of time before you put that I or or woman back on the schedule after positive. Yeah I've NBA become kind of a resource for a lot of sports. Over the last couple of months, I know a lot of people have called the League office about those things lasting one ASCII is. As. You're putting the schedule together. How did you balance the the Fox relationship with I? Mean obviously you heard last year when Bill Wang came on the show, and said as we get whatever fights that we want. How did that work I mean? was there any any as the relationship with our evolved? Over the last few months, so that you kind of have an idea of WHO's going to be a showtime fighter, and and what kind of fights you're going to get. In, it's an ongoing conversation. Because look he's. He's got a Keep both networks. Happy I. Look at the schedule and I. Think we're. We're very happy. A look, some big fights that are not on our schedule and you know there's there's certainly. Desirable fights that are going to end up on. Fox or Fox pay per view. but You know there's there's a pretty candid conversation. It's like you know. you know I've I've talked about that fight that fights over there you know sometimes I'll ask about guys and say well, you know. I, you know SORTA had him. You know penciled in four November on Fox, so there's a there's a pretty candid conversation about all of that I. Mean Course you know we want all the good fight. Spots wants all the good fights. You can't win them all, but I think what. What I'm proud of with the schedule All of us are proud of is the fact that there's there's real depth here. You know and isn't just a star in showcase fight that there are fifty fifty fights. But those are you know for the Carlos. In particularly those are those are two fights, which could both easily go the other way. but if we look further down the card, we have young guys taking step up fights We have guys that we've been wanting to see a guy like exurbia Martinez whose one floyd skies or or rolling or reliable meroe, whose another fan favorite! Steven Poulton you know Chris Kolber. Seeing these guys not again nine in showcase fights, but in step up fights in eliminators so I. Think it. The schedule is really the to lot of a lot of thought a lot of work. because. We didn't WANT TO MAKE 'EM TOM! You, know in in in the. Goes through the paper He. was part of that candid conversation like look. We don't want to be a feeder system to to Fox. I mean we don't want to be the network that puts Danny Garcia on. And loses out on Danny. Garcia Zero Spence in the fall. That argument, consistency and programming, and it sort of feels like you're you're you're working on something You know the without getting too much into it. You know what? what Bill had explained as certainly not honored any of the relationship And you know I think as time has gone, you see that's you know it's not an accurate new a reality we're. We've got plenty of good fights. Fox is GONNA. Get their share of the fights. But there's enough to go round you know, and as we can say, there's you know a really. I would consider this a very loaded. schedule. They're still finding over for. Steven good to see that. You're not dead. He's not dead. I had I had read. The showtime was out. The the headline on boxing scene I. Didn't I didn't know that it's GonNa say that you're still alive. That right. You're not that I like Bob Arum said you're not on your way out just like HBO. We figured out. A WAY TO. You to to compete to to pay for it You know rumors the rumors of our device. Greatly exaggerated. If you can say who. Me The sleeper pick for the. NBA Finals. Portland Trailblazers really yes. Or just to get bullets. In your Oriole's well one of the last times we had a situation like this and your New Yorker now the ninety nine six. Eight seed during a lockout season made it to the finals. I'm I'll be rooting for them Among other things up for you know trade talks about you know. Damon Lowers probably the biggest NBA fan in in in the whole week. Boxing. Fan. Yes boxing NBA. With us, he's he's. He's a real big fan so alcohol, right? I think. I would say this. It's not going to be chock. It would be Lakers vs bucks. Something Weird is going to happen. You're hopefully to transition. Nothing weird happens with your shows. The August first showtime boxing back full schedule all through the fall. Stephen -gratulations and good luck with man to hopefully being ringside for some of us right away from Howard in. All right. That's this week's episode. My thanks to my guests as always subscribe to the podcast over at Apple podcasts, rate review you know I appreciate it and I'll see you next week.

Well, Hello there. I know it's been a minute. I have some explaining to do walk into to a new season of New York Yankees baseball. And with that welcome to the second season the sophomore season the pinstripe planes podcast. I'm your host diehard Yankees fan. And I guess I can't say radio hosts at the moment. Anchor editor freelance entertainment reporter front friend of yours. Ralphie aversa. Appreciate you. Tune in a couple of quick things here before I get into a little bit of explaining. And then I get into this week's guest whose I mean. I mean talking about start off with I hesitated starting off the interview or the new season in the podcast with this gas because it's just set such a high bar. It's like how do you follow this up? And granted it's not like we did the thirty minute. Barbara walters. Sit down with him where we laughed and we cried and this that and the third. However, the fact of the matter is Jean Carlos Stanton is our first guest for season two of the pinstripe planes podcast. We've got to spend a few minutes with him yesterday at tau downtown will explain why and everything else that just a little bit. We're taping this on Wednesday afternoon. So we got to buy Powerball ticket for seven hundred and fifty million dollars. So that I could buy my Yenkey legend season tickets. And then of course, Thursday make my way up to the Bronx, Thursday morning beheaded up there, and friend of the show our buddy Eric season ticket holder expanded to four season tickets this year, he moved over a still up in the grandstand. But he's in the first row of his. Action right behind home yet. Great sith before I think these ones are going to be even better. And I'll be there with him. As the American flag is unfurled in center field and the rosters and lineups are announced along the first and third base line. And then we play ball for opening day twelve thirty after in the afternoon approximate start of the festivities, and then a one oh five I believe I pitch anyways, some explaining to do row quick just a couple quick thank yous. And I've pretty much said everything I'm going to say at least at the moment publicly about this. But I will say thank you to everybody who is checked in and kind of been along with me. It's been a wild past few months in my professional life wild. Maybe isn't the eventful. It's been it's been more eventful than normal over the past few months, and there has been a job changes. Well, thrown in the mix with that also. And so I just wanna say thank you to everybody who's reached out and kept in touch and kind of been there along the way and supported also want to say. Thank you to those who over the past couple of months and yonder have checked in about this podcast wondering if it was going to come back for season two. And of course, you have your answer. Now as you hopefully received your your push notification wherever you're subscribe, whether it's tune in or we're we're all star. We I tunes obviously, Google play Spotify so on and so forth. Yes. Season two episode number seventeen in the pinstripe planes podcast. We are back at it. Log story short thing just got really crazy towards the end of the regular season. And then the postseason was here and gone before you knew it a couple of quick stories. I was getting ready to tape episodes seventeen of what would have been season one of the pinstripe planes podcast up at Mohegan sun on their forget this. It was in September. It was a Friday night in September. I was up at Mohegan sun to interview Becca from the bachelorette along with her fiance Garrett. So I was getting ready for that. And I was all set the table podcast. And then my call time got. Pushed up a little earlier for the event I was doing at Mohegan sun. And so I had a scrap that ended up traveling till to Wisconsin that weekend hit a I was at the brewers game. That yelich swing yard twice and help them end up pushing the to the playing game and then winning in the division. I was at that game at Miller park by if you get a chance to go Miller park fantastic, Milwaukee fantastic couple that with a trip up to lambo to see the Packers beat up on my bills and Lambeau, I could do a whole podcast on that. So that was a anyways. So I get sidetracked there. Fast forward to the AL Diaz game. Number four. It was the night of the American music awards for my old job. I am out in LA covering AM. AMA's? I am in the media room getting the push notifications. And I get a push notification that I believe it was Neil Walker who got hit by a pitch and a run scored announcing myself, wait a minute bottom. On the ninth. If he got hit by a pitch and a run scored that means the bases are loaded. And so I was really good. I was doing my job. I wasn't watching the game. But I turned the game on then at that point on my phone and watch the Sanchez fly out that we all were hoping would go few extra feet into the stands and left. And then believe it was tourists who grounded out, and and that was that. And then obviously, we had a, you know, Cora and the Red Sox and suck on it. And know don't even get me started on any of that nonetheless, then some professional things happening. You get through the holidays you get through the new year. And here we are opening day Thursday. Will you ready for a new season of of Yankee baseball as far as what I'm looking forward to at the stadium. I don't believe I think I walked by it, but I didn't actually go into the new wine bar that's in Yankee Stadium in right field. If you remember that opened up towards the end of the season last year, it will be the first full season for city wineries space that they? Have there looking forward to that? Especially since my girlfriend's a big wine drinker. She's big Rosaiah drinker. So I'm sure you know, that will be a popular spot for her. And I'm sure I'll, you know, join her at some point or another in there. So looking forward to that look for the rocket some new gear opening day as well. I did throw down with fanatics. And I bought the Aaron judge batting practice hoodie. So that's the new thing this year. They had the three fourths leave kind of warm up shirt fleece for batting practice over the past couple of seasons. They've now switched it up to a hoodie. And it's got the player's number on one chest the Yankees emblem on another. They're our home and a wave versions, and this got a little tricky with me and fanatics because for Aaron judge they had the home version pictured. However, when you order, it you receive the away version, the only difference is the color of the interlocking and why home version it's white a waivers in there's a great tone to the middle of that. It's still a sharp witty regardless looking forward to wearing that for opening game. And of course, a big thank you to our buddy. Eric who was able to get me a ticket at face value for a season ticket holder. So I did not have to pay the TicketMaster face value, nor the Gidon for stubhub and the get in for stub, by the way last time. I checked actually isn't that bad or looking at low fifties and sunny for opening day, which is better than getting snowed out and away we go opening day. All right. So without further ado. We'll take a quick break here because I've been talking for a minute when we come back. I will explain why I was chatting was young Carlos Stanton yesterday in Chelsea at tau downtown and you'll hear from number twenty seven from the Yankees next here on episode seventeen. Yeah. We are in season. Two of the pinstripe lanes podcast. Then welcome back episode number seventeen. It is great to be back with this season to thank you for continuing to stay subscribed. And we appreciate the ratings that you've handed out throughout the years tweeting with us Instagram with us on Facebook and with us at pinstripe planes. And of course, I tunes Google play. Spotify. Tune in wherever else you can find podcast, if by the way, you found us through some other method and were not on the platform that you normally get podcast on let us know. I will say what the professional changes. I guess you could call them over the past couple of months that is open me up now to maybe be on a few platforms that we weren't able to be on in the past or that would have been a little tricky to get on. All right. So speaking of other platforms, and other outlets big. Thank you to my friends shayna, I met shayna over six years ago. I ever red carpet, I covered as a New York City resident it was four an Alfred Hitchcock movie or a movie about Hitchcock. And it started Jessica Biel and Scarlett. Johannesen? And by the way, I was at the very end of the carpet. Both stop from me. Both were fantastic. And afterwards, I met shayna and shayna is just she runs a website called the nocturnal. But she's done a lot of freelance stuff as well. She's just she's a hustler, and she's a scene stern. She is everywhere. And I I think she's great. I think she's fantastic. We've been good friends now for a while. And so every now, and then if Shane has gotten event that makes sense for me to cover, and or she needs someone to cover it. She'll reach out to me. And so she hit me up last week. She hey, we just got this invite. That's what the Yankee player we can't cover it. You know, you wanna do it or now, and it was an invite to go to does your media. Does your magazine they were celebrating the cover of their new magazine and their cover star? Was none other the number twenty seven John Carlos Stanton. The event was in Chelsea at tau downtown, I guess Chelsea meatpacking district may be in that area. And it was from six to eight thirty with my new job. Now, I'm kind of at least at the moment. The new job in kind of like a nine to five. Five space. And so I could kind of I could finally go out and do these cool evening events during the week. And so I said Shane sign me up as like us the audio for the podcast, right? She goes, absolutely. I said great. So I already I wrote an article actually about two hundred fifty words about the event you could find that over at the nocturnal dot com, and you can find this audio there as well. It's embedded with that article. Without further ado, let's hear from Jean Carlos Stanton of the New York Yankees on the latest cover of your magazine, along with do your media, founder, he also founded niche media and sold it. So a very influential man in media, very smart, man. A media Jason been Jason put Giancarlo on the cover. We chat with both of them about that and more right now. So why does your why did you decide to do this cover procedures magazine? We know very high fashion, and I like, I like fashion. So I think think we blend well together, I wanna talk fashion but on the field. I know last year, you know, you're a Nike athlete, and you're you're stunned on them last year with the MVP batting gloves. Do you have any player exclusives? This year on even like that. You could share with me or now I got some good stuff, which is gonna have to see on TV when we get there. Okay. All right. A lot of people have talked about you being in New York for the second year. How much more comfortable you might be at the plate in the field so on and so forth. But now with this being your second year fulltime New York how how does that if at all factor into you deciding to do something like this like a cover for your? Well, yeah, you you enjoy the doctor -tunities you have especially the second year all that getting used to last year and all that nonsense. It's it's good to be settled in and ready to go for the year. Jason when you first saw his cover what you think. Perfect. Picture-perfect are you comfortable in a setting like that? Or now, you're going to be good time. Why did you shoot? This cover was shot. Well, yeah. Yeah. That was in Miami. Of course. Shoot. Last year, Aaron Boone and mentioned that you played down the stretch a little bit hurt your obviously carrying the team, especially while Aaron was out. Have you taken any extra steps this year any different steps in sure that you can stay a little healthier throughout the course of one sixty two you always repairs can stay healthy out there. And you know, we're we're out there every single day. So you never know what's going to happen. But you always prepare to full season. I let me just ask you Jason why why Giancarlo for the cover because I think he exudes what we do which is a fashion entertainments lifestyle. And for sports sports is a big big part of our business. Everyone loves sports, and it's nice. I and mix it up with fashion and art entertainment celebrities and all that good stuff, gentlemen thanking. And so there you go big. Thank you to Giancarlo. Big. Thank you to Jason interview is not confirmed prior to as getting on site so worked, but the PR team there, obviously Giancarlo kind of in between interviews with Tina over at FOX five and. Adler who we've known for a while who's over at picks in between those interviews and in. I think he did spectrum one too. So maybe pack here in in our buddy had a had a little soundbite for his morning show. And then the last saw Giancarlo make it some time for us didn't want to oversell it again, we only had them for a little bit. I think the the most interesting part for me, you know, Giancarlo. I I was thinking about this before the interview has I was doing my prep for the interview. He speaks the same way. He swings very to the point very short, but very impactful and he's got a little bit. I don't wanna say jeeter because Jeter is much more eloquent with it. But he's got that cliche. He's gonna say things without really saying anything. And so I thought really for me the most interesting part of the interview was the question about him being comfortable not just with American League pitchers, but with being in New York, and now does that open him up to do more things like a tau downtown party with his girlfriend in the desert media cover and the whole nine and he. Talked about nonsense dealing with nonsense last year. Now, I assumed when he said nonsense he was talking about the fiasco with him and jeeter and the face off and him forcing jeeter's hand to trade him Stanton from the Marlins to the Yankees. I don't know. I mean, look, you know, obviously, the start of the season was out a good one in Giancarlo was getting booed. Maybe he was talking about that the booing being nonsense. I don't think so I don't wanna believe that. And I will say if you rewind too early last year Giancarlo couldn't have handled his slow start any better from a media in PR standpoint. He was self deprecating. He was honest and he never through the fans under the bus. And I think the fans eventually did warm up to him. You look at the season in hindsight. He and I mentioned it. And I and I wasn't I wasn't overstating this because I was standing in front of them. And by the way, he's a big boy when you're standing in front of them, I wasn't overstating this. At all. I mean, look when judge was down Boone mentioned, a many times in this press conferences that you know, there was some hamstring issues with Stanton. He wanted to give him a day. But the fact of the matter was they were in a dogfight for the pennant and then for the wild card, and they they couldn't they just simply couldn't and Stanton to his credit. Stuck it out and played probably a little hurt on daisy moon when maybe he shouldn't have even been in the lineup but didn't complain and pushed right through. That's how you went over the Yankee fan that and producing and winning a championship. Of course, the playoffs certainly weren't great for Stanton. But luck it was his first one in New York as his first one period. And so we'll see the second time around. I'm sure there will be a second time around gets me a little worried as a Yankee fan that you have so many people picking us to win the division. Because while I do think our team has greatly improved Red Sox are going to be formidable. And you never know what the raise especially the way they played. I mean, I think they've lost a few pieces too. But the AL lease is just I mean outside of the Orioles, which they're going to be a joke this year fine. But by the way, real quick, and we'll wrap on that note. I'm a little I'll take some suggestions. I'm at ralphie Aversa. Of course, the podcasts at pinstripe planes at all the social networks. Don't think I'm going to get out of Baltimore this year because the Yankees only play one weekend series at Camden that weekend series is next weekend, which is the opening series at Camden. And I'm, you know, don't cry from Argentina, I'm in Vegas that weekend with the girlfriend because she's out there for the awards. And so, you know twist my arm I'll be your plus one for that also final four weekend. So I'm looking for another road trip this year or trip period, Kansas City comes to mind because that's on a weekend. It's Memorial Day weekend. Maybe Toronto maybe we get back up to Fenway this year. But we'll love to hear your suggestions. After you look over the achey. Schedule reach out to us that way episode seventeen season number two. Here we go. We're going to do it weekly. And I don't know if we're going to be able to follow up next week with a guest as good as you in Carlos Stanton. But we will certainly try here on the pinstripe lanes podcast. Thanks for tuning in.

#205: Deuces Wild Table Game

"March twenty six twenty twenty from alcohol in California this episode two hundred five. You can bet on that everybody. Welcome to you can bet on that podcast for the recreational. Gambling is marked of all and sitting across from me at a safe. Distance is Dr Michael. Oh I don't know about safe safe distant. We've got these pop filters in France. I think that'll catch anything well for our listeners. Who have already heard and this should come. As no surprise our trip to Biloxi in April has been postponed. It's really something because well okay. Last time we recorded it was on March eleventh two weeks ago and we were you know we were talking about basketball pools. We had vinnie on. And we're saying hey we'll see in Alexi the very next day that will. I'll tell you that night is when they postponed the NBA right. You know and then everything started falling apart after that and now it's like we're living in a different world right and really at that time right before then. All the podcasters we said well. Are we still going to go? We also yeah. Yeah you know we still plan on going like a weekly or now. I don't think he'd be able to get a plane even if you wanted to go and a lot of them cancelled so many flight not just that but with the casinos even be. Open the right place to stay. Well I heard yesterday. That San Manuel Casino here in southern California plans to reopen April twelfth. Okay and it was one of the first ones to close in our area and the host their texts. My brother yesterday and said that they plan to reopen April twelfth. Okay now that's just sure it might get pushed out but okay so it may not be allowed to. If the governor continues the stay at home that we have here in California right well the idea is to you know it's like okay. We're all going to get infected. But that's not all get infected at once right. That's the idea right. Not Overwhelm spread out. Yeah the medical hospital system so anyway Yeah let's see. Some states don't have a lot Nebraska. How many casinos in Nebraska? Yeah not enough and I think for me. I don't know of any casinos in the United States. That are open now. There might be some hold outs or like small card rooms some state with like one or two case so it it could be the case but certainly all major casinos are closed downs. And you probably don't WanNa go to one anyway. It's taken an awful big rig. Well it's like other people working near don't want to be sure sure it's like the guys on do for a win said. They said they didn't come up with this. But they said that casinos are just land-based cruise ships right right. Yeah that's pretty much good way of putting it. Yeah or many of you probably received an email with a video message from Caesar's CEO Tony Rodeo. I think that was either yesterday the day before. And he did talk about. You know it was talking about. Were closed and all the things you'd expect to see. But he did get kind of specific about their Caesar's rewards program and so let's talk about some of the things that he mentioned in that message number one no reward. Credits will expire while their properties are closed. So you know if after sixty days you you don't play or you don't somehow everyone's expires because they're closed for sixty days and it's just like. Oh sorry that's the idea. You have to do something every sixty days to keep your reward credits. Active right and that could be playing at a casino or sometimes using their credit card something. So He's saying okay. None of those will expire while. They're close now. He didn't say what the alternative was like the day that they opened back up. Do they expire that? They probably not. I mean the idea would be that they would add however many days. They're closed onto that sixty days but he didn't he didn't say anything specific number two and I'm going to quote him here. They're prepared to modify tier status earning requirements depending on how long this lasts and we will share details about these changes as we get more clarity and that makes sense too because with the casinos being closed this long. Oh my gosh. I can't get my diamond status right. Make it every year right. It might be hard for a lot of people so again. They don't have details out yet but at least they're taking that into account so I would guess that they would just lower the numbers. How many credits it would take to get to if there. But we'll see about that number three. They're going to refund all seven stars experienced credit redemptions. That are or will be affected and they will be bookable at later dates and that addicts you Mike. Right right because I had baseball tickets for padres opening weekend. Which is this week Yeah a would have been this weekend right and you used your seven stars experience points to get those right so again no details but you won't lose them. Apparently and then finally they will work to reschedule events and offers customers have received and obviously that won't be every single event and the NFL draft right. They were gonNA this big thing. That's part of it but it'll be interesting to see how they handle the offers because we're losing hundreds and hundreds of dollars in free play that we would have gotten because we do go at Harris Southern California now. I can't imagine that they're going to give us everything that we missed right. Because it's not like we showed up and played. I mean that's the ideas out there to play but we'll see if they compensate us in some way and I gotta feeling compensation means like well the steak knives that they ordered that are already there in the back room. We're GONNA get those at some doubt forgetting our free play kind of like well you know. What can they do? File for unemployment. Put it in your application for unemployment. Look I lost a lot of free by a lot of free. Just say it's about ninety. I would've gotten a return of about ninety percent. Yeah right anyway. It was nice that he came out and talked about these things. He didn't talk about the acquisition by Eldorado at all. Right knows if that you know. There's talk about that. Maybe not even going through because of how the stock market's going and all that stuff sure sure well that creates value on the Stock Exchange. Oh absolutely has to decrease their value. So I don't know I don't know enough about financing but it might sour the deal right or at least postpone it for a while or something like that anyway. Tony Rodeo said that you can go to Caesar's dot com slash updates for more information. They'll be updating that page but it was nice that he came out at least said something. Even though some of it's still up in the air in vague. That's one nice thing about a big corporation like Caesar's versus going to be a Haas here in San Diego. We have no idea no check their website. It just says closed. I and their social media. They're still some southern California casinos where I go to their twitter account and there's no mention of them being closed. We know they're all closed now right now. It's funny how they don't in this day and age you think they'd have to. People hired that active and are like on it all the time you know making updates early promotions and stuff and wouldn't it be good business to do that now? You'd think so. Well one of the things that I think a lot of people are doing while they are sheltering in place is watching a lot of TV and movies and one of the things that Jerry. And I did the other night was to watch uncut gems the movie with Adam Sandler now. I told you I was going to watch it. Did you watch it also. No I didn't watch okay. All right well. I'm going to talk about it a little bit. I was hoping we both talked about it. And that's why I said. Hey we're gonNA watch spent two days ago. I spent the whole day watching Season Three Jessica Jones. Oh all right. I saw the thirteen episodes is thirteen hours of Jessica. Jones was good all right good for you. Well Anyway. You've probably heard of this movie. It's stars Adam Sandler as a jeweler who gets mixed up in sports gambling in a really bad way and I'll say this the movie. It's actually a very good movie but it is a stress inducer pretty much. Every scene is written to make you feel uncomfortable. It's like oh my gosh. How's he going to get out of this? And it just goes on and on in fact Sherry was even saying she didn't really enjoy watching it because it was just so stressful right but those movie. Yeah but it's still a very good movie. He's excellent and you know. Kevin Garnett plays himself in the movie. And he's really good. Oh yeah he's really good uncut gems. I'll have to watch but again. It is stressful. If you know a lot about sports betting there a couple of things that happen. It's like that's not exactly right but I don't WANNA spoil because they're not that big a deal and honestly if you don't know a lot about sports betting you probably wouldn't even notice it and I don't think it really affects the story but still boggles my mind when they screw stuff up like this. This isn't as bad as you usually see at a poker table. Or a craps table or something like that and I'll talk to you about it after the show but anyway moves the plot along so okay. I'm sure on the set when they're filming that there is somebody who who's a sports better well. Who who would say well. We should probably change. There's enough details that they obviously had somebody onset who did know yes but I don't know if just artistic license or whatever you know to move along the plot. Maybe they lost might not be worse. Right changing things Since I mentioned Jessica Jones Season Three. Yes I don't want to spoil it for people who want to watch. This is their last season. It's our last night. I think it was a really good one but she does team up kind of team up with another person who has super powers. I won't tell you his powers but he's got a sports betting and poker playing problem interesting nats what causes him to do the stuff he does because he gets financial hardships because of his his addiction. To All Right Poker Jessica Jones part of the Marvel TV universe on Netflix. Okay all right I mean. They don't show him playing anything but they keep talking about it. That's his motive for the bad things. Good thanks to but the bad things are motivated by sports betting just like real life. Yeah like rely on our last episode listener. Nick called in and one of the things he said was that he played a game called. Duce's while a table game not video. Poker deuces wild. I believe it was at the D. I can't remember for sure said the D. and we said we'd talk about on a future up. So why don't we talk about it right now? You ready ready to learn. It's actually this is pretty straightforward. I think you'll have been known for about twelve day. I think you're going to be fine. I think you're going to the Games actually been around for a while at least nine years. I'm trying to remember if we've heard of it before. I don't think so I I certainly have never seen it. I know I don't think so either. So anyway it's again gain. You're not playing against the dealer nor the other players at the table. And if you play your hand to completion you'll end up with a five card poker hand where deuces are wild. Okay just a regular fifty two card deck video. Yeah you'll get five cards. There's no draw you'll just end up with five cards and deuces wild okay. So to play the game players make an ante wager and then the players receive three down cards. At this point the player can fold if their hand is really bad or make a play wager. Equal to the amount of the ante wager says either fold. And you're out you lose your Anne typical for most of those games or you can continue by making a play wager. Then the players receive one more card. At this point the player can fold or make a raise wager. Equal to twice the amount of the ante wager. Okay so if you started with five dollars on the ante wager and you've made it this far because you didn't fold you'll have twenty dollars at risk right the five dollar ante wager the five dollar play wager and the ten dollar raise wager okay and then players receive one final card players win if they have a pair of aces or better again with Deuces wild and depending on how good your hand is you'll get paid at odds now if you have exactly a pair of aces nothing higher. Just a pair of aces the ante wager wins even money and the play and the raise wager. Push for all other winning hands. All three bets get paid at odds. So that's the only case. Where only the ante wager would get paid off just as just a pair of aces anti gets paid even money playing raise push. Okay if you have two pair or three of a kind you get even money on all three bets and again all these wagers all bets are paid so to pair and three of a kind even money a straight is three to one a flesh full house or four of a kind is four to one. You're thinking what well deuces wild rice? You'RE GONNA have a straight flush is ten to one five of a kind which you can have with. Wildcards is twenty two one a royal flush with wildcard pays thirty one. And that's what. Nick hit when he was saying how Wild Royal. Four deuces is two hundred to one and a natural royal. Flush is a thousand one now. How many decks are they dealing? Just one fifty six hundred so there's only four that's correct. Yes right and also keep in mind. This is not like deuces wild video poker where you draw right so your hands are not going to be as good as video poker because it's just five cards right right and if you're playing straight up just you and the dealer the dealer doesn't have hand know if that's the thing it's just you and the dealer table you're only seeing five cards out of the debt. Exactly going to be pretty hard to get a four of a kind. Well it uses while it's no harder than if the tables full and everybody's getting five cards think about your cards aren't exposed so well. None of the cards are exposed. Not like you can see other people's cars. They're all damaged. You're not going to get. I mean you'd have to be pretty lucky to get three twos and a well sure. Of course of course but it doesn't matter whether you're by yourself full table kissing. This has a high house edge because thirty two one for a royal but four of a kinds. Only four to one all right. Well let's let's get to this and we'll talk about the house edge in a minute. Let's first of all talk about the strategy for it and I'm getting this from the wizard of odds website. Okay so on the playback when you just have three cards. You're deciding whether to fold or make that play. Bet You're gonNA make the play if you have any hand with a deuce any pair or three of a kind three to a flush with an ace or three to a straight flush. Otherwise you fold in k. any hand with a Deuce appar three kind three to a flush with ace three to a straight flush and according to the wizard. If you're following this strategy players will make this play bet. Thirty eight point one percent of the time now the raise bet strategy. This is when you have four cards. The player should make the raise. Bet with any of these hands any hand with a DEUCE 'n paying hand. Obviously if you already have a pair of Isis or better right four to a straight flush or straight flush or any pair three three kings right just hoping to get trips well again. This is just based on the odds and the wizard actually says if all you have is a low payer it's basically zero percent house edge going forward so you might as well make it. You know because you're gambler right okay. And if the player is making a following this strategy he will make the raise bet ninety seven point seven percent of the time so he's already made the play. Bet Right you're also gonNA make you know sometimes sometimes not but okay so as far as the house edge goes. I'm GonNa read directly from the wizard here because there's kind of a difference between House Ed and expected law so I'm just GonNa read this year on average. The player will two-point one three units by the end of each hand. That makes the element of risk that is the ratio of the expected loss to total bet equal to three point two three percent. You probably thought was going to be higher. I thought it was going to be way higher. Yeah yeah so what it is. It's just it's easy quote unquote ticket a pair of aces or better. Just because deuces are wild but I guess I don't know it might be worth playing just to kind of get a feel for it but I can kind of see why it hasn't caught on because maybe it is too simple. You're not playing against the dealer all you're doing is deciding whether you want to continue with the hand and put out more money like let it ride or something like that. Well you said you were going to make the raise bet. What was it ninety eight percent of the time once? You've already made the play. Bet You're probably going to make the race. You're making one decision. Are you GonNa make the play? Bet Okay. Sure because after that ninety eight out of one hundred times you're gonNA make the RAZ. Yeah so it's like okay. I got one decision to make in this game. And it's based on those first three cars. Yeah well okay. I'll go along with that sure. Yeah I mean that's the game right. All right I'll tell you what I'll do since we both got so much time in her hands all right. I'M GONNA call you this week and I'm just GONNA deal out some hands. Okay here's what you got playing or not. I'll take this sheet home so I can mark. How do I know you're not manipulating the car? I don't I can't tell for sure I'm telling you the truth because you want to see accurately crazy. I'm going to be well if we're betting five bucks. I'll just make the play better right. I'll tell you what after this right now. We'll check right over there. Hey thanks to everyone. Who's been clicking through our Amazon link. Remember whenever you're going to buy something through Amazon? Please go to our page. I you can bet on that. Dot Com and click through our Amazon linked towards the top of the page. All right. Let's move onto some voicemails. I is our Buddy Miguel. Hello Mark in Dr Mike. This is Miguel from Santana longtime fan of the show. And I'm going to find out after Mike. That's a medical professional. You think this Kobe. Nineteen panic. It's a little bit overblown and you think this is going to affect the attendance at the casinos. Where you know you don't want to be with lots of other people. Immigrating closed area all the same. Do you think that they will have problem if you ask them to? Clean the dice in between rollers because that could be an opportunity for vice manipulation you know applying materials to the surface of the dice etc. And finally if you were on a hot role but the ruler was coughing and sneezing. What would you do just curious? Thanks guys for a wonderful show and hope to hear from you all right. Well obviously we got this call before all the casinos. Close having say about this Mike. Yeah I got a couple of things to say about number one. I actually heard a dealer. Tell a player to wash their hands. The player said he was going to the bathroom. Cover my chips. And he said make sure washer handle it and he wasn't joking about you know. Make sure you wash your hands before you come back. This is right before the closures for the closure. Yeah so I'm sure the dealers were very worried about things because they're the ones who touch the dice more. Oh I mean you know and chips and cards and so they're the ones that are really at risk you know we went. We went the Saturday before. Virtually all the casinos closed and it was slower than normal. But it wasn't that slow it's slower than normal but not that slow but not that slow. There were plenty of people there as far as the virus itself in a casino. Yeah that's a dangerous place because everyone's touching everything and what? It is is living on hard surfaces for a long period of time like the dice. Yeah so unless those dice are cleaned after every time somebody touches them. You're kidding yourself. If you think cleaning wants today is going to do anything. You'd have to do it after every time and that's just not going to happen right. It's like door handles. I was telling somebody the other day. Or here's a better example. The pump the gas station yes. I know 'cause everybody gets gas and everybody touches that pomp and you know unless you clean it after every person is used it really thoroughly. You're kidding you can clean it once a day. It's not like that'd be like me saying well you know we're GONNA wipe this room down at the beginning of the day tomorrow. At the beginning of that will wipe it down in between you know. We take our chances. Yeah well that's just not good practice so casinos can't stay open during something. No No. It's just way too easy to spread. You just got to close the casinos down now. The interesting question to me is when you open them Right right when you open and Wendy you say okay. This is passed well. They can set a date April twelfth. But that's not hard and fast. They're going to reassess as time goes on here right. And that's I think they're just going to say a date and then when the two days before they can say well. Okay we're GONNA keep that or no better not based on hopefully some good science. Yup All right. Thanks to my next up Powell Melanie Marcello Dr Mike it's from Colorado just got done playing in Blackhawk. My Dad has this new system where he said the two units I'm sixty and then as soon as one hit get down because he said mathematically related six or an eighth and a seven. You combine the anyway really going to go to. Vegas to celebrate my dad's sending the birthday March thirtieth however we canceled that trip due to the Toronto virus them and they wouldn't play does not that. Although I found it extremely difficult to discipline for the most part displayed the way usually do they have line anyway. Getting a great cable really from people living patted at all those nice but the people who were there. Superfund I will say. There's no smoking as you probably know in Colorado Casino. I wonder if that will possibly keep it a little bit safer. Since people are touching chips taste jenner drinks money and then they figure you know what I mean. Anyway that any case you know it was like the sessions. Where if you remember people in Vegas Especially Nice? The people that were there again. I like the people that are almost always very nice. Everyone went out of their way to talk to be conversation in connection to be pleasant even more so than normal. Anyway one. Two hundred fifty dollars win different tax tables and Democrats found it much easier to play my dad's crafts because I don't have to do that. Embarrassing thing where you go. You take my bed stepping into weird gulliver now one of the table. They played I totally wanted because I did the system. There weren't that many people that simple but he's here anyway. I love the show. Love love it. Nothing better than a new. You can bet on that if the drive home from a Great Day at the Casino. And it's not all right guys. Thanks Melanie. It's funny Melanie. Because that isn't a bad system and your dad's right chances are you're going to hit us before seven however it's such a rough way to play for me for you for sure. Yeah well you know. Think about this. You banged up at six comes up. It hits you take everything down. The Guy Roles forty more role. Of course he roles a seven. I know I know but it's just it's just one of those things for me. It would be so boring and you see people do that and then wade if he rolls and then put it back. Sure and then hope to hit it again. Then you're up and down. The dealers loved add people taking their bets up Dan. I'd say that's really the only big negative is that sometimes dealers don't like that but it's limiting your exposure to a negative viva game. You know it's not a system that's GONNA help you win. Sinoe where the pit boss isn't paying a lot of attention but he sees you make the I bet you probably getting rated for that you know that twenty four dollars making one hundred fifty six and then take it down when he walks away whether it's hit or not. I still getting rated right so in that respect it's good. I have seen two extremes as far as people and their behavior right now like I'll talk to some of the people working at a supermarket and they'll tell stories about just he's crazy people you know sure but sharing. I the other day we went to target when it first opened in the morning right and people are they are getting all the stuff that you water and paper towels and toilet paper and everybody was so nice to each other. It was kind of like. Yeah this is the new normal for a while. Oh excuse me even though. There's this big crowd going on. Yeah so overall and I told my daughters this overall people are pretty nice when there's crisis it's so funny to me and I don't want to sound like a terrible person but why aren't we liked that all the it depends on the crisis when it's something like this where like you and I aren't endanger right at this moment right right and we saw a neighbor we can be pleasant. It's not like something where the house is on fire. Let's get Outta here where my parents their neighbors on both sides came over because they know that they're in their nineties and they know that they're shut in and both neighbors on either side came over and said. Hey yeah whatever you need disliked US know. We'll go to the store. You don't have to go out well. They don't do that the rest of the year. They'd have to stop by and say oh you you're not feeling well. What do you need at the story? You know. It just doesn't happen. Yeah I guess we're overly Nice when there's a crisis going on especially to people who can't help themselves as much but you know in regular life people normally you go to the soup historic. It's busy like that and you stepped in front of somebody they cut your head now. They'll be like Oh okay. Well I'll take it for now because I've got a theory and it's just kind of Nice to have people being nice to each other. It's nice that they're nice to each other and I and I love it. I just wish to. We continue longer. Not the not the epidemic. Now what do you think? What do you think about this smoking thing that Melanie he's talking about? So if you've got somebody WHO's smoking yeah? They're putting their hand up to their mouth quite a bit. So you think that's more likely to use spread something like that. That's a good question because when you exhale the smoke there's got to be virus in it right while I'm thinking more of actually touching the cigarette and you're touching your mouth more than normally would right right. Yeah yeah for them. It's probably more dangerous. I mean I don't know I it's like I know but yeah I'd have to do it already. Johnson used to win you. Show your age. So does anybody know we're talking about you? I bet you Adam knows who already Johnson's Adam. Yeah you thinks I traveled a millennial I that's why used him. I think he knows I bet she will let us know ahead of time he's dead. We was hilarious. I agree interesting thing here. Just since this came out my sister was going to get a doctor's note from my mom's doctor since my sister's out of work because the krona virus right she's an optometrist. Sherry was even saying. Oh my gosh. Yes only bad enough for you but Tom just about it. They're right in front of you. A dentist is worse. Because we're in you don't you? But anyway she had to get an from my mom's doctor for some medical thing and you see she looked at my mom's chart. This is a little off topic but I'm going to say all right and had COPD chronic obstructive pulmonary disease uh-huh so mostly linked to people who've smoked Okay because their lungs are compromised. But your mom's ever smoked. My mom has never smoked and has always eaten very healthy. She's worked her whole life very hard working person very healthy person. Actually but she's been a waitress her whole life my own restaurants and then he retired and didn't own restaurants anymore. She worked in restaurants so she's been around smoker light right because back when she was doing it. You could smoke in rescue restaurants. They were very smokey. So that's how much you know that second hand smoke is infected her now. That's why they have to be quarantined because they're at such high risk. So you know my sister's telling me this and then she saying we marketed the casino so much. Aren't you like when you're ninety? You know your lungs are going to be all messed up from smoke. 'cause they're still is smoking in California casino and most casinos really. Yeah so I mean when Melanie's talking about Colorado casinos would know smoke. I'm thinking that's great. Well it's something to consider but it's not like we spend as much time in casinos as employees to employ even close not even close employees. I mean that would be a legitimate interest and right. Yeah definitely legitimate. Health Concern for an employee of Casino. It's kind of scary. Really think about that. Well think about some guy who's older worked in casino for many years and his lungs maybe are a little compromise because of all the smoke over the years and now he's got the Kovic virus to worry. Well we're still. We're kind of as a society moving more towards a no smoking. Hopefully yeah hopefully. Yeah all right next call. Hey Martin Dr Mike to stop remain calm. Love quick trip report last night or they head down to New York for a funeral. So that was No it was down to backtrack so I figured I'd stop at Mohegan Sun on the way down and on the way back so you really different experiences on the way down. It was in sweats. Jared had of had Got Their seventy m and the skeleton crew. The overnight crew ever find small table. This is interesting. He was a twelve foot table. That the pit. I was in the dice. Were really tiny at least compared to my home casino in Oxford name so that was a bit of an adjustment but had fun one a little bit of money then hit the road on the way back. I was in my More formal close having a my friend's funeral so I had a blazer-and-slacks at the crew dealers. Were Great. They actually seem to be a little better. Asked me if I wanted the market which had never had before which I'm not that big of a roller anyway. Played really fun. I was surprised on a Saturday night. Getting there was hoping for fifteen dollars table And found one for ten so that was great. Really great experience the dealers where a lot of fun really fun atmosphere casino was packed as people were selling for Saturday night. The founder of the rail one a little bit more money and then back to me but just curious if you guys ever seen different sized ice like that. I don't know what size they were but they made my hands feel like gigantic so it was kind of interesting but Mohegan Sun Months Years was Super Fun. Really great experience. It's just really funny. How on the way down? They were a little different than me. Might have been going great chef other way back. They treated me a little bit. Better Super Nice both times anyway every show. I look forward to hear more your podcasts. To care now knows monopoly. Dice Bob we were using monopoly. We didn't notice though at Mohegan Sun that the dice for any smaller now. I don't remember that but I happen to places where I picked him up and thought well. These are smaller you. Can you think of any specific because that kind of rings a bell with me too? But I can't specific no. I can't think of the Queen's maybe Oh four Queens yes yes is that right leans has smaller space. Did they used to go from nugget? Which had dice like Caesar's properties and go to four queens and they were these smaller units alison. Remember thinking. Oh monopoly monopoly box. Although now I think about the same size I wonder if maybe Oxford Casino that Bob is going to just has extra-large dice right. Because Bob Filter mentioned they're these big plush. The old high roller show remember that they had like two big dice and they had if they rolled like an eight they could take the eight off the board or they can take a three and a five off the board and you had to get rid of all the numbers. Oh my God sir showing my age now but that's probably where it's like those huge. He's two hands to roll. Go real slow. They land on the table and sometimes the dice land. Somebody's chips and they have to move the chips to see how the digest fallen four people's chips or bats and you can still see what it is. You don't need to move anything you can tell. What's on talk? All right. Next up is August. Hey guys this is August forward from Cornyn previously from bath. Been Awhile since I've called in and I just listened to your most recent episode and just had some thoughts so when Vicenza was talking about the better life at first I thought he said the bitter life and I was just laughing so hard on my way to work about a podcast called the bitter life and how we could just talk about all the terrible craps roles and how you went to the grocery store and they didn't have your favorite brand of Blueberry Yogurt and all the things that make life better. That's what we're in right now. We're in the bitter life right now. I can think of several vegas or gambling themed. Podcast hosts yes. It would be excellent. Yeah I'll tell you what it is better when you go to the market and there's no hot dog buns I mean. I went the other day no hotdog minds. I'm like what are you GONNA do? Use Regular bread on hotdogs stat. I hate that I hate that. You have choice. You can be the same but I hate it. There's no buzz and just a couple of the other things. The highest beer there is a guy that is always at the bar where I play the horses who always drinks cores light on ice which I always found a little bit redundant like course light needs to be watered down more and your podcast schedule always seems to just lie right off with whenever I drive out to the casino and it's just perfect like an hour hour and fifteen minute podcast and the drive for basically any casino ongoing about an hour and fifteen minutes so it's like my pre-game and it just gets me in the mood. It's just a great experience and I just wanted to I'll send you this video. It's a little bit old now but actually my sons I experienced craps. He's like two years old and we're at a summer festival picnic type thing like a barbecue and there's somebody who set up like a little trap stable and I put the dyson his hand and he throws it and I swear I'll see if it's in the video but the guy says make sure hits the law. I just about lost it all see if I can dig that up for you over. Pretty hilarious. Anyway thanks for all you guys do and yeah just love your show all right. Did you see this video? Did I say okay? I'll show you afterwards. But yeah it's his son throwing the dice. It wasn't a real craps table is kind of like just bet on one of these numbers kind of thing writing. Roll the dice and yeah the guy saying throw real hard now. It's Cute F we need. We need an army of kids who are actually dice manipulator. Yeah well now's the time to teach your children. You got another time STAR PRACTICING. Build that table and start practicing. Yeah the bitter life. Well you and I have talked about starting a brand new podcast and all we have to do is change one letter in the name you can bet on that and be vastly different vastly different. Podcast vastly different. We're not GONNA come up to us if you want to hear about that when I talk about on the show all right. Next up is Nathan Nathan from Indianapolis called a couple of weeks ago. Give you a trip. Report was in Vegas over the Super Bowl. One thing I forgot to mention I four vets on the game and one of them was the Patrick. Mahomes rushing yardage. I don't know if you heard about that bad beat or not but it actually worked out well for me it open. I think twenty seven and a half by the time I got to Vegas I bet up to and two and a half yards for mahomes rushing so I ended up taking under just thinking. That was a big jump five yards for quarterback to run very often and then obviously the game. He did run quite a bit. I think he ended up getting up to forty four yards at one point and then with their three kneel down at the end he was in shotgun and took a couple of steps back even farther math and you know so it was. Three straight kneel downs and negative fifteen yards rushing for the neo bounce. It went down to twenty nine yards so I ended up winning that Bat. So it was Good win for me but I guess the reason I bring it up is like I said I have four bats and I thought I had one two loss to including on the homes because I I cashed it in the next morning right before I was leading and I hadn't really paid attention to the staff so I was thinking about just as I always give the losing tickets just for this cancer just in case so moral the story is I think all your listeners should try to do that sometimes. You know the tellers up there at the sports book will give you kind of a question. Look but I still give them to him. Just a scam through. Because like I said I have I would have Throwing away to two losers. No these huge bath. Each one was about a hundred bucks. But you know that would have been throwing away a winning ticket. So just keep that in mind and Yeah we actually just cancelled our trips in TUNICA MISSISSIPPI or March madness. Obviously the cancelling gains. We're not going down. There just listened to your most recent podcasts with city and at the end I know you said you're still planning on luxy. Still not sure if that's changed or not. Keep us in the loop on twitter and Hopefully you can see down the Lexie. Nice guys one. Yeah so the BILOXI trip is postponed. We all the PODCASTS. We've talked about. We still plan on doing it eventually. Maybe it will be this year maybe next year but you know it's not canceled. It's just postponed postponed indefinitely. Exactly that's really good advice that he's giving no honest if you think it's a losing and if you're worried about how they look at you just say. Oh sorry. I didn't see the end of the game. What can you just check? Some might be lose. Just do that with all my lottery. Tickets will buy lottery tickets. You know randomly just. She's just at the store. She buys one or two. I always check them and run them through even the losers because never know I mean I might have been looking at the wrong day because I I usually don't look at a live. I look it up on a later right and I might have been looking at the wrong so I just always run them through. Just to get that confirmation yeah. These aren't winners. I would do that at the track to right. If you've got a lot of bets going. Just run them throw. Can you check these? You know? Just be up front and it's like Oh yeah sure. Yeah they slighted through the machine. There's no not a winner and if you're worried about them saying that's not a winner. But it really was and then pocketing the money and watch the display. It should show when you go to the seven eleven and has a thing there comes up. Yeah all right next up. Is Our buddy todd. Martin Dr Mike. It's tied for Minnesota. I have a philosophical question or observation about craps. I wanted to get your opinion on to me. I like the message of craps and what I mean by that is. It's okay to call out a bet without actually putting the chip on the exact location on the felt for it to be valid. Bet You can throw chips to an extent to a dealer and they'll catch the chips and set them up how you want. There's a trust between the dealer and player that you definitely wouldn't see at a blackjack or relent table. Can you imagine what would happen? If a black check dealer just started pitching cards out to the players you come up through a hundred dollar bill on the table and say twenty five dollars but no way would they take that. I like the messing craps thoughts think back to. Maybe when you didn't know the game and you just saw the table it's like oh my gosh. It's a little overwhelming. I like that too. I remember I was playing once and there was a friend who was watching. She was not familiar. She was impressed. With how little talking was going on is like dice were rolled and then the dealer handed me something like well. Sir. A six was rolled. So here's your dollar boom right if I say press. They know what to do. You know. It's just it's fast and it is message but that's part of the fun of it. It's like get as much money out on the table as you can see. We only play games with increasing. Entropy sort of thing is that it. It's our thing really. Yeah that's the more. The Inter p goes up the luckier. We all know. That doesn't sound like me. Not a big fan of you are not no sir. You know all right next call. Hey Dr Mark and Dr Mike. I don't know how this whole virus deal is gonNA shake down but we had a plan and our local casinos are closed down. So don't know what's GonNa go there. Dr Mike Try that the NCWA charm is cancelled. Hopefully they don't cancel the horse races. They all have something to bet on. That's about all we have down here so you'll have a good one. Yeah the tournament you know. Obviously there are way worse things going on a tournament. We dropped our episode our last episode at around eleven thirty noon our time on that day and within a half hour they cancelled the whole term in here. Our whole episode. We're talking with vinny about you. Know all these pools that you can enter was particularly rough for US. Cassandra state was in it as a highly ranked team potential to do something whether they would over not who knows. As far as I'm concerned they won the whole thing. We're having a parade as soon as spiral Gherardi Paredo. If it had actually gone on we know they've got a slight chance but now that hasn't gone they absolutely would have our friend. My James said they absolutely. Nobody can dispute that as nobody can dispute that the padres are going to be in first place on April first and a again. There's a lot of things happening in the world. But Oh we love this tournament so much and you know. They're not postponing that. It's just done for the year next year. It's going to be all different. Teams can't really postpone. Can't I know now the Kentucky Derby is postponed yes so they have rescheduled for September fifth? Right now it's interesting because our friend Chris who comes to poker night he and his family they were all go big thing for Kentucky Derby and I said what are you going to go now in September and he's like a spoiled for him they all this buildup and now it's changed and so they may not go. Well they're here in San Diego. They've got to make reservations and you to reschedule and the Olympics. You know you and I are Big Olympics fan right so you know what a nightmare that is at. Least they're planning on having a next year. They announced. They're going to do it in twenty twenty right so but you know that's another thing too. Well I was all set to have some Olympics. The Olympics is a whole different beast before you spend billions of dollars on venues and stuff. I mean you just cannot let that go to waste at the same time. There's still going to lose a ton of money during the ceremony and it won't affect most athletes but it will affect some. Oh there will be some there will be some. There'll be some. I'm wondering if you qualified like to make the US Olympic team in like say one hundred meters. You have to qualify. You'd have to qualify again. You can't yeah. And the guy who was third my third. This time I get bored or fifth or but I wanNA to say in. Correct me if I'm wrong that a lot of the Olympic qualifying Hasn't happened yet. Some last minute yeah. Some is in March and April. So all right next call. Hey Mark and Dr Mike Brand new listener. I love your podcast. This is Mike from Acworth Georgia. Just wanted to give you a trip reports. As of March eighteenth but the Harris Properties in North Carolina are closed indefinitely. So I went up on the seventeen to get my fix before they close and had about a five hour session and within the first three hours we hit remake them all three times. You other shooters that were one number away from them make them all also hit my heart eight that I had parlayed at the fifty dollars so that was a four hundred dollar win on that casino had the magnet underneath the table turned off for that day so everybody was a winner at a dollar on the make them off the dealers every time so they made money all the shooters made money and it was a great day so just wanted to give you an update on that and I hope they don't stay close to Long I love your podcast. Great format keep up the good work sex. You'd think that if the casino knew that they were going to close soon that they'd really crank up those magnets. Yeah the CRAPS table right to increase number seven hours but I did the players favor. That's nice. Well maybe they wanted to make sure they came back. That's it right. You're right my hands afterwards. Yeah that's what they do right. Which BRINGS ME TO I?

I know this is Recruited kind going on especially with the whole gambling. Thing that you guys are probably going crazy over there. I'm sure you've already made some sort of nick ship crap at home game. That could be playing a lot of poker something along those lines and I know this is really taking a hit on my business as being professional sports handicapper. There's nothing on right now. You're interested in darts or maybe a Chihuahua. Raising anyways colleague of mine has a buddy that works for the Nevada board gaming industry. And it's you know all these casinos in Las Vegas as well as non essential business here in Nevada so the Board Game Street has a lot of time to think right now and he told me that one of the things that they want to implement now is on the crafts table. If you're all I've been to go over twenty goals doesn't matter the time over twenty volt they're going to automatically switch out tonight so each time over twenty goals and switching out the dice. And that's non negotiable. You have to do it. And that's just something they're coming up with. I don't know how that's going to go over. But you can think with all this free time guys are.

So congratulations to him. One an incredible run. Of course he is qualified now for the national tournaments In las vegas later in may so congratulations to him. And the circuit events will continue in pennsylvania las vegas pennsylvania and new orleans head over to that national title lot of great news coming out but of course the big one which is on april. Fifteenth year would always be known as black friday from that one right absolutely. Well let's talk a little bit about that Again thank you. Steve for the the news. as we mentioned the Eleven defendants were named in the suit of the department of justice issuing a press release on the indictments of the owners of the three largest online size again pokerstars full tilt and absolute poker and also people who were in the payment processing. They were charged on a couple of counc- legal gambling business act of nineteen fifty five. And what we've talked about numerous times on the show the you iga unlawful internet gaming enforcement. Act of two thousand six and these penalties can arrange in years in prison. Five thirty and the fines are quarter million to a million dollars in fines. And i'm sure that these people don't worry about the fines as much as potentially there could be multiple factors Of those fines can be two three times but still the the years in prison is definitely something that is going to be Looked upon. We'll talk a little bit more About the time line as well numerous People have come out with statements The poker players alliance has stated that they were Really en- shocked that the united the united states government would do such a thing Full-tilt has come out with a statement saying of the similar a statement as well so there are a lot of people who have come out with statements stating that Is incredible that the the government would Get to this stage but unfortunately we are. Now here It is a situation where we're not really sure where the united states poker scenario will go where it'll it'll take it and really where where we're gonna go with this And and it was going affect so many different things. Such as the world series of poker. I know that tom dwan full tilt poker. Pro as a guest. Tendons where the world series main event at twenty one forty four. I believe it's going to be more than that. We'll we'll talk a little bit more about that later as well. But i think it's going to be more than that. I think you can even reach close to six thousand but We'll definitely hurt. A lot of people will hurt a lot of Jobs will be lost and a lot of a lot of scenarios will change Moving forward but when we come back what will do is. We will go through a quick timeline of the world of online poker and then later on we will talk with and bj nemec our guest.

Espn than april fifteenth typically known as tax day the longer and the longer tax day in the world of us poker players will always be known as a day Called black friday where The world changed forever at least in the short term Let's well one of the things we thought we do. Is we go over a little bit of a time. Line of the world of online poker and to kind of see where we how we came to this moment in time and How this could have ever arisen so If we go back in time Way back to one thousand nine hundred four The island nation antigua and barbados Past the free trade and processing zone and this allowed the companies wishing to start an online casino to apply and possibly be granted. A gaming licence micro gaming was formed and they created gaming club dot com and shortly thereafter a few years later planet poker launched january first of nine hundred ninety four and amazing the first game ever offering. There was three six limit poker. And they signed sponsored pros mike herro And also roy cook. These are some old time players Ultimately planet poker did close in two thousand seven as as you may. You may never remember that name but it was something that never really took off the pokerstars full tilt of the world paradise poker in nineteen ninety nine launched and this was Really the place. Where a lot of people got their teeth cut planning. But i remember the first time i ever played online. He was on paradise poker In two thousand and one we had other sites that suddenly came about pokerstars gut shot poker ultimate party. Poker came about imported polka. Really wasn't the site Was the biggest site for many many years Pokerstars and shot were the first ones to run satellites for the world series. And as you've of course remembered two thousand. Three chris moneymaker wins his seat into the world series for just thirty nine dollars and then the moneymaker effect and the moneymaker boom happened for online poker before that party poker signed mike sexton the ambassador and Mike has resigned with them fairly recently. Ultimate invent signed phil hellmuth and as many of you know filming of has Stopped his association with ultimate vet about a year ago In two thousand and six the world series main event had more than ten times the amount of players just three years prior in two thousand three. When chris moneymaker won the world series eight hundred and thirty nine players but the height in two thousand six eight thousand seven hundred and seventy three this year. The jamie gold one right before the you. Iga went into effect and really truly if she did not go into effect. It would have been truly remarkable if you think about it. How the sky really wouldn't have been the limit. I'm not really sure if we would have been able to hold at the rio Eight thousand seven hundred seventy three players Had slowly started rising these numbers. What would have been the year after. Probably over ten thousand maybe eleven thousand and then what would have happened from there. So An unfortunate time for the u. i. g. e. a. And that definitely stopped all of these pro the processing with regards to online satellites. And that was really a a difficult time that you iga was attached to a port. Bill and By senator i i and so it was definitely a unfortunate act that started this downward trend for poker in two thousand seven net teller was the e wallet site for most of these online gaming was charged and basically they were charged with laundering. Money and the funds that were in net teller were in limbo for several months. Many players had hundreds of thousands of dollars especially the big name players. Eventually they were allowed to return the money to the players but again this was another big blow to the world of online poker over the last year or two there have been definitely a lot of potential Laws that would supersede you. Iga and potentially Overturn you g barney. Frank a representative from massachusetts Definitely lead that charge Ringing in several laws Several bills To help provide licensing for internet gaming and gambling activities Senator representative mcdermott from washington was also trying to have senator menendez from new jersey again. A lot of these were trying to help. Get these internet gaming activities done but unfortunately nothing really came to fruition harry reid last year at the end of two thousand ten was also trying desperately to try to get a An act done This would have potentially given several Online Licenses but could have put the people we are talking about the pokerstars. Full till the absolutes. In what what. They deemed as a penalty box Because they did not follow the laws of the us whereas the land based casinos would have been given licenses such as harris and they wouldn't have been able to start with their online site potentially up to eighteen months in advance of these other players. Unfortunately that did not fall through Especially during our lame duck period which before the new senate and newhouse came in. We believe that that was our best bet but that did not happen so unfortunately now suddenly what happens. On april fifteenth. Two thousand eleven will always become a day As we said black friday and since then several people have been indicted Representatives were indicted The owners of full tilt poker stars absolute slash. Ub and then people. In the payment processing scenario a few of them have already been arrested and charged With them very very interesting scenario The poker players alliance did come out with a statement. steve buchanan. Could you help us. tell what the poker players alliance mentioned in their statement to to The public absolutely is what they said was on behalf of millions of poker players across the country. We are shocked at the action taken by the us department of justice today against online poker companies will continue to fight for americans. Wait to participate in the game. They enjoy online. Poker is not a crime and should not be treated as such. We are currently gabbing. All the information around today's announcement will offer detailed analysis when the full facts become available and that was from the poker players. Yes this was done by the chairman. Alfonse d'amato former senator in addition to that pokerstars Did deliver a message. Not a really big statement but basically said that our balances are an account and basically have put up a statement that anytime you try to play that That they had suspended real money poker services to people in the us deutz in the legal developments. They're confined to the us and do not have any impact on your ability to continue using our services. Especially if you're outside of the us there's no cause for concern as the player. Balances are safe for all customers outside. The us is as usual. full-tilt ceo Raymond muhtar also made a statement Steve what does he say yes he basically over they said they give link you want but basically the summary of it was full tilt poker online poker legal of also taking myself the best legal minds in the united states also poker is and has always been committed to preserving the integrity of the game and inviting by the law. I am surprised and disappointed by the governor's decision to bring these charges back. Unfortunately is a scenario. He also said that He's looking forward to Exotic of being exonerated from all of these charges. Some people have also stated that there is a gentleman from australia. his name is daniel. And i can't pronounce his last name but that will spell a cheesy v. e. t. k. o. f. f. he was A former alleged former payment processor for online poker companies and what people believe is that he gave up a lot of people in this process and because he gave up all these people. Well guess what that's how they started this We're able to get the evidence to process all of these people and unfortunately here we are today so that is a little bit of a background of online poker. How we came to the situation that we're in right now again if you have not heard and it is a situation where we are all in shock that On april fifteenth. Us department of justice has prosecuted indicted the three largest online poker sites interesting enough. Some punk precise have not shut down as of yet. They are still in business. Which seems very strange but primarily because of the belief is that they will not get a license anyway in the future Vo dog is still accepting. Us players and interesting enough there. Traffic not to be surprised is up. Twenty five percents They're also giving. Us players wapping One hundred ten bonus with ten percent paid upfront. And they're definitely trying to get any business that they can To give some background of what has happened Over the last day of course this sunday millions the sunday millions is always the biggest event of the the week now because of the us scenario the sunday millions had to Go down in numbers. It wasn't as bad as people had believed it was going to be but on april tenth. Eight thousand two hundred and seventy three players participated whereas this week six thousand four hundred and seventy five players. You can see a considerable amount going down. The full tilt sunday brawl. Went from two thousand six hundred and seventy six players down to seventeen three so definitely a scenario where the world of online poker has drastically changed. And we're definitely going to see if live poker will change accordingly and go up or because of all of the money that is online and it is now dried up or being held right now or will backers who have a lot of money online. Stop backing people will backing deals. Which a lot of it is compared to shown online or related to online Work stop as well. So there's so many questions right. Now when we return. We're going to talk with. I w pt co host of the began just show bj anemic and get his thoughts on one going to happen in the future here on arlene pope poker game to feel like.

Some people had already started seeing the do j. warnings on the home pages. And i was still able to lot log in and see the actual home pages but hearing it from people. I trusted i. I knew the worst had happened. In terms of the online sites and it it may be only took about Two or three minutes for to sink in and realize wow At the poker industry in the united states is changed forever right now definitely as we thought the g back in. Oh six was bad now. Five years later obviously commend asli More impact fall has happened. Now you work for the world poker tour as we said lead reporter and do a show on their jan just How do you think that this will affect. Let's talk a little bit about the live poker. How do you think it will affect the live. Poker scenario the pt unlike the wpa and some of the other tours hasn't had that many online qualifiers in recent seasons Obviously online qualifiers from the united states are gonna dry up almost immediately So in that sense the wpa people to that however a lot of players have large portions of their bankroll online right. And a lot of those. You know the the top players. You're dana grand news and people like that. They're not going to be hurting for money. They're they're not gonna have any problem. you know. sitting. Down to play. P. t. events a lot of the mid level pros They may have backing deals Where their backers can't access their money for a while. Backing deals are in jeopardy. They may have sponsorship deals that they count on for additional income. And we're expecting a lot of the mid level american pros. There's there's a reason for a site to sponsor them if they can't even play in the us right absolutely and like you said a lot of these backers of some of these backers that their deals In the backing deal has to deal with online as well as live I talked to a couple of these young kids. Who said yeah. I'm not really sure live. I know i can get back. But i'm not really sure if i can get back Anymore because part of my ideal was the online scenario on them playing tournaments online. Now obviously the first sunday has come and gone with basically sunday millions and and And such no longer having us players right For for most online players. Who were back yeah. The majority of their deal was for online. Play and only a small part of it would have been for the live. Play all right And it's tough to keep that same arrangement when the online disappears for him right. Absolutely well the interesting thing is is that you said the wbtv really hasn't had many qualifiers a. such a pt. well new. That's definitely going to suffer if not be gone until this is resolved. The wfp had stopped a lot of the qualifying acceptance. But of course like you said a lot of these people would qualify online and then potentially take their money out and go in play. It'll be very interesting to see how it affects them and a lot of these people who are naysayers of online helping the live scenario. They'll see it in the upcoming months. Essentially at the world series. Like you said the numbers could be down this year for the first time in a long time and and that'll be very sad from poker with regards there is. There is an intriguing. Flip side to that. We we see this. A little at the next w. p. t. event in florida in about a week and a half but especially at the waso p with no online play available. There are a lot of professional online players in the us who are used to just grinding out constantly. that's now been taken from them. They may try to the next six weeks or so until the waso key and then just had to vegas where during the summer you have. Constant cash games constant tournaments of all sizes Not just bracelet events but the rio has You know maybe tournaments and sit and goes and there's other tournaments all throughout vegas so you may actually while the bracelet events and the higher priced events may be down this summer. It's possible that all the other games around the world series see an increase because they're the only games available right right. us players. What do it'll be very interesting to see what happens. We're talking with. Bj name Lead tournament important for the w. p. t. and host of the bijan just show on untorn dot com. Here on the bernard lee poker show. Now what do you think about the Young kids who grind out every day make a living. How many of these do you actually think might even move. I mean i know that. Five years ago i heard a lot of people saying listen if they really really do shut us down. I'm going to move to canada. Or i'm gonna move to the bahamas or whatever it may be. How many people do you think what percentage of people using will actually do that judging by comments online and players. I've heard from it. Seems there are a fair number. That are already seriously looking into those options. they're trying to figure out what exactly it requires the setup residency in a foreign country. You know the minimum requirements to be allowed to play on the legal sites for those countries A few years makes a big difference for the young guys. 'cause there are some online players who are doing this while they're still in college not quite twenty one yet or maybe just turned twenty one. They still have a lot of options. They're going for their degrees. They can continue on a normal life path but there are some twenty five and twenty six year olds who've been playing online for you know basically their adult life. They don't really have job experience. You don't really have transferable job skills and the job market is horrible right. The options available to them are basically you know. Start your life from scratch move out of the country or try your best to become a life pro which is a very very different kind of career. I think the interesting thing also is. Here's the questions. Is that if someone from key lives in canada. Let's just argue. Whoever that may be someone lives in canada and they come here to the us and they stay here for the world series. Are they allowed to play online. The readiness elected looks like they would be blocked along with the american really. They would be blocked because they're here in the us because of their ip right That seems to be the way they do it To this point my understanding is like in the past. If somebody 'cause there are sites that have existed. Do not operate in the us. Especially since the us ge past and those players you know would come to the us for the world series. And they weren't allowed to plan those sites while they were here. Wow that's very very interesting. I think the next viz nece that can that can be spawned. And and i've heard through the through the grapevine that there is something like this that somebody's ip can be detected as if it was detected in canada. Even though you're here in the us how it can be done but if you think about it a lot of these young kids. They travel so much and forget young kids. I mean. there's a lot of live pros at travel all around the country and they always joke like i'm never in my home. I don't even know why i keep a home. Well if that's the case what's the difference of them living in canada and being home twice every four months incentive. New york vegas. What's the difference. Both they're playing the. Us live tournament circuit the differences. When they're back in their hotel rooms. They won't be able to play anymore right right. But i'm just saying if they were able to live in canada have residency in canada and potentially do this. Ip trick thing that. I'm talking about that. I don't even know how that works. But if they weren't able to a few people have proven that they could do it but most most are recommending against that strongly. Because it's it's a violation of the terms of service. Your basically you know the the player would be committing some level of fraud at that point and if it were to be discovered and i think they have ways of discovering it You know you may be sacrificing your entire bank for right now. It's now they're now. They're now they are at fault whereas currently right now they are not at fault for for playing online correct One one interesting thing with the location of where you are supposed to wear your account is based. It appears that if you have if you are an american with a full filter pokerstars account if you're overseas right now. People are reporting that they can't access their pokerstars account. There cannot they cannot wear an american and pokerstars is saying. I don't care where you are. You're in american. It's not allow for covering bases. You're not allowed to play. There are reports that full tell is allowing americans who are overseas. They're basically saying since you are now in a legal jurisdiction. We are going to allow you to play interesting. This hasn't been confirmed With the sites yet This is just based on anecdotal evidence talking to people who are in these situations but if that were the case it would nearer how the sites handled the recent down of washington state right whereas pokerstars said if you're washington state resident. You can't play no matter where you are and full tilt said if you're washington state residents you just can't play in washington state right right interesting. Definitely a scenario that is in just increasingly becoming More concerning for all these online players the other interesting aspect is wow are these people or when are these people going to be able to get their money out. I know a ton of people once they heard about it immediately cashed out. But that's the exact same scenario as if you remember back in six of the teller scenario when that taylor went down everyone cashed out. Obviously their money didn't go anywhere for for months and then finally something was solved. I don't think it's. I don't think anyone has gotten the official word yet but i would find it very very hard to believe that anyone who did cash out on april fifteenth getting their money. Back right away I agree both full tilt poker stars. That came out with public statements assuring. Everyone their money is safe safe. Right right With no word. I'm when we'd be able to access it right I think what you said is true that it is probably going to take months and nobody. I mean right. Now that is deep almost literal million dollar question for some people probably literally the million dollar question of how and when will they be able to get their money. Back as as long as these sites continue to exist overseas You know they're pulling out of the us market but the companies are still for international customers. They will do everything. The companies will do everything they can to make sure every american get their money back there in their entire business depends on the trust of people sending money to a you know faceless corporation and if it ever got out that hey you know the all the american players got screwed out of their money no one would ever send them a check again absolutely. I think it's definitely important for them to somehow figure this thing now. The one thing is is that With regards to these companies and the the big three obviously pokerstars whole tilt and absolute and absolute obscene apparent of ub. So it's really kind of goes hand in hand is that these sites fortunately or unfortunately because the u. iga definitely had to expand their customer base and increased it in europe as the european poker tour. Pretty much probably the hottest tour right now. Then you have the latin american poker tour. The asian market. Australia obviously exploded as well and so ironically. I've heard numbers of anywhere. From thirty. to forty percent of their base is in the americas isn't the majority of it obviously a big portion but not the majority of their business is gone now with the us. So i think that that's still a fortunate thing. Do you think that now. Oversees we'll start to increase more because of that because obviously now pokerstars full tilt and absolute. We're going to have to recoup their money somehow and focus their efforts on these other tours. Well pokerstars is obviously much better position for this than full tilt burger stars has percentage of non us customers and they have such high profile with all their Regional tours like you mentioned the european poker tour. Latin american poker tour They have several of those around the world and they also with their marketing. Dave been more aggressive in signing international professional player to be cases of their site. So they have. They have pros that appeal to the latin american demographic and that helps create a sense that this huge multi national sights is more local and i. I think that'll serve them very well. One one interesting change in the international dynamic is all the other sites that didn't serve the us market we're at such a huge disadvantage compared to these big three because they did serve the us demographic and because of that they were far and away the largest sites in the world now that they've been cut off from the us market they have to compete on a more even playing field with the likes of party poker and other sites. You know best fair triple eight. The others Suddenly you know competition tends to be good for the customer. They may start getting more aggressive trying to pull players away thing now that pokerstars in full telling been pulled out of the us you may want to look at other options and they may start giving better rake back better. Sign up bonuses It the atmosphere has the potential the international level to really benefit the players. Now the interesting scenario that we have now is now the. Us is completely blocked. And we don't know where this is going to lead etcetera both. Tell us a little bit about what you think the future may hold and what this is this ultimately a good thing four poker here in the us. Or is this basically d- day and it's over. I do not think it is over I don't think i didn't go so far. Say it's a good thing It it may eventually come to be seen as a key moment. That helped lead to legalization. We we certainly hope. We have legalization on the horizon. Unfortunately i don't think congress really acting on it this year especially with all the negative publicity from this right now. Twenty twelve is the presidential election year. And this issue just seems to. It's tough to phrase. i'm. I'm not sure too easy for the average voter to grasp and have an opinion of and i'm not sure congressman would wanna go on record in a major election year issue like online poker. Where whether they vote for or against it. Their opponents could run ads against them right so the earliest i am expecting Serious legislation are serious push for legislation again twenty thirteen now. The interesting thing is states Interested poker may gain traction in the meantime and that's where saying hot if they passed it. Nevada residents could play in southern nevada and as long as it stays within the state. It's not a federal issue. Several states have already put forward bills about this new jersey the legislature passed the bill. But then the governor can't remember if he vetoed it or didn't sign it vetoed attempt. Okay yeah so that bill was killed in that version. Several others Are are moving forward on this and a lot of us expect one or two of them to pass an interesting poker bill possibly by the end of twenty eleven and if that happens especially now that there's no legal poker on the at the united states level at large it should see some pretty strong numbers from people playing it. Those interest rates site that may show a lot of tax revenue Hopefully it'll it'll put out a good impression of legal regulated online poker and we could use those cases to show the federal level. Hey don't be afraid of online poker experience a lot of tax revenue. It's not as bad as you think it is and That's that's kind of our our best case scenario but i also find it to be a reasonable case scenario. Yeah i think i agree with you. I think that you know. After being a federal scenario where the doj joe comes in. I don't think The harry reid's of the world are going to now want to try to push this. Let they're gonna let the dust settle for a while and that could take anywhere from like you said twelve to twenty four months and they're gonna worry about it after the next election which unfortunately like you said is is A long ways away The interesting thing is what's going to happen. Let's make the hopeful assumption that Twenty four months from now with does pass. We'd get Legalized poker now. What happens so now. Is it going to be very similar. To what harry. Reid's bill is that absolute and full tilt are all now in the penalty box where they now have to if it takes six months for all these people to get their licenses will now. They be penalized an extra year or eighteen months. So therefore the party poker and the caesars entertainment and the eight of the world can now go out and become gangbusters and potentially party poker now becomes the biggest online site once again or caesar's does and pokerstars in full tilt and etc now suddenly become Penalized i think that that's a very valid point and it looks like the oj wants to make sure of that because it seems like they're very very upset and face guys you know. Tested the waters of the ui and You know defied the government. Yeah i think pokerstars in full tells are much deeper trouble than that. I think if if the bill were to pass similar to how harry reid at it. I don't think the penalty box would matter to tilton stars. 'cause i don't think any gaming commission in the united states Unless they somehow beat these charges which right now seems unlikely a settlement. I don't see that nerve favor. And if they lose certainly not. I don't see a gaming control aboard up irving them for a license. Not because of the gpa Penalties which you know the sites could argue fairly or not you know we were serving poker. It wasn clearly legal or illegal. You know their arguments to be made based on the fact. That poker is a skill game. But the thing they can't run from is the money laundering charges and the bank fraud charges. And those are the king kind of things that a gaming commission i mean. That's just a flat-out dealbreaker So if something like harry. Reid's bill were to pass I don't know if they would make the blackout period apply to existing sites that play by the rules like party poker But it seems like you know like you said caesar's they own w. s. o. P. dot com. Which is probably the most powerful brand poker especially in the united states It's know they've already got a site in england where it's legal for them to run a site My understanding is they pretty much are set to just flip a switch and they can be online and ready to go. They would be one of the first who would get approval from gaming commission because caesar's already is licensed gaming commissions. All around the united states fans property caesars properties. Atlantic city nevada Many other states. It's a no brainer for them to get one of the very first licenses. Have one of the most popular brands and the only thing that had a chance of knocking them from that was full tilt poker stars now that fulton pokerstars are basically out of the equation If and when legalization hits the executives that harrison wfp dot com. This day will have been a great day for them. It's got their two biggest competitors right right absolutely well. The interesting thing is now also. In addition that full tilt had a relationship Stars had a relationship with win trying to work that out from one. All understanding is win has broken that relationship with stars I'm not sure tilt had a ship something now. All of the people who had any semblance of relationship with these trying to distance themselves from these sites. And like you said this could be a major issue for the owners. Also the payment processors like you said maybe the owners get a buyout and pl- you know strike a deal of some sort whereas the payment processors may not be able to avoid that at all and and be charged with as they said anywhere from five to thirty years in a substantial fines as well in the short term. We've talked a lot about the long-term let's talk a little bit about the short-term some of these kids we talked about may move Do you see live poker increasing especially some of the tournaments. Or do you see them kind of tailing off. I think i think overall it it'll be tough to measure. I think overall life poker will increase a lot. More people will get out of their homes and go to the casinos. There are a lotta professional online players. Who live in las vegas or live not that far from atlantic city But don't go. That often only go for the big tournaments and spend most of their time online. And i think they're going to. Maybe not as often as they played online. But they're gonna flood the casinos. And i think pash games and smaller tournaments are going to see Big increases You know kind of have to wait and see to know for sure. But i also think the big events until the bankroll situation can be resolved where where people get their money back from the online sites. The big buying events are going to see a hit and The predictions i've heard for like for the wfp main event for example I've heard anywhere between twenty five hundred and the low five thousand I'm i'm somewhat optimistic. I think they can hit five thousand but pretty much every american online qualifier Won't be there because if they already won a seat day probably can't access their funds in time and there are no new online satellites for the us players being run. It was interesting. I i would. I would say i think is easily gonna make five thousand and i would say that the people who are interested in trying to play you wonder if they'll be more live satellites The live satellites at at The world series in harris I think we'll be bigger. And i think still they weren't that many. I'm sorry online qualifiers last year that potentially came only from the us. I think there were still a lot of Foreign and especially here in the us a lot of people who qualified they didn't take the ten thousand dollars just left in their account and there are a lot of people who just said. I'm happy with that ten thousand dollars and realistically they're gonna chance at ten thousand dollars that they have to get through ninety percent of the field just to be able to cash so i would venture to say that i'm gonna if i had to be a put a number on it i would say easily. I think it's in two thousand and five. It was fifty six nineteen. I think it's going to be over. That i really do. I mean last year we had seventy four hundred or so i. I don't see dropping by two thousand this year Think we're going to come anywhere near seventy four. I would say around maybe six and and being disappointing scenario but I wouldn't be surprised if we get something like that. Twenty five hundred. I think i think that's ridiculous. There's no way that's very low. I think you think that easel. Y'all the economy could take a big kid. Somehow i think we'd still be nut. Might still the tournament of the year. You know i think fifty six hundred is within sight If i see over fifty five hundred i will be very pleasantly surprised but not shocked. I see over six thousand. I'll be shocked while b j nemeth Thanks so much for joining us. Here does unfortunately a very disappointing and shocking week. Here in the us for the world of poker. And it'll be very interesting to see how everything shakes out from here. i it will affect not only play but it'll affect tv Obviously with the world series. Look at all. The tv shows big game poker after dark etc. I mean the the the belief is that a lot of these shows are now going to cancel So now you have. You heard anything about those. I haven't heard anything directly from the producers of the shows But people who are more connected than i am say they will be off the air very soon. Those are the show is that were almost fully funded by Pokerstars or full exactly. So it'll be interesting to see what happens over the upcoming months and what Concessions and compromise are made by the government to allow A continuation of some advertising or if any at all but because obviously there off Off the ability to Be able to function here in the us. They obviously will not be advertising. So it'll definitely be an interesting time for the world poker over the next twelve to eighteen months and Virginia thank you so much for joining us here on the bernard lee poker show and sharing your thoughts.
