"You're killing me smalls. you're killing me. What makes the sandlot stand out above the rest. What about this film makes it so incredibly iconic as a summer film so the sandlot came out in nineteen ninety three and it was directed by david. Mickey evans it stars. Tom geary as scotty smalls. Mike mike guitar as frankie. Ria or ben franklin rodriguez. Patrick renna as ham. Quarter chauncey. the party as s- quince paradores. Art leffler as the babe or babe. Ruth and james earl jones as mr myrtle so there are a handful of films that really stick out to me as summer movies iconic for being the movie that you know it's the summertime and you watch it. Jaws is one of them Well you get the point. I mean the. There's a bunch of them. That i guess you could go from jaws definitely sticks out to me but one of the other main ones that really stick out to me is the sandlot and it's you know it's hard to save. It's because of the plot or if it's just that the movie itself is so incredibly quotable in and i you know iconic Or just because of the fact that it really the sandlot just exhibits what it really means to be a kid during the summertime so that could be that. That could totally be as well. I feel like one of the most fascinating aspects of the movie. Itself is that there isn't really a single overarching plot or it doesn't feel that way to me. What it feels like you know is Let's see how do i break this down. I wouldn't necessarily call this film and anthology film. Which is i mean. If you're not sure wouldn't anthology film is It's essentially a film comprised of a bunch of short stories that are very loosely connected by either a theme or premise or potentially as one person telling each store your or something like that that is an anthology film But i wouldn't call this film that i probably just call it like coming of age meets slice of life so that that's really what it is. You're watching kids living their lives doing their own thing and having adventures along the way. So that is what i would say. This film is and i think the reason why i point out the fact. That there isn't a single overarching. Plot is because i feel like most movies nowadays. You need the plot..

F. thank god it happened Friday yeah yes of course you open up any and yesterday it's a crime well last night you do first time I went back to the crown royal you have to make sure you just going to look at you do you have the I'm thinking you have the capacity for the big ice cubes like you have to have the I don't I don't have a house no the the ball to make the ball the big ice ball yeah or the square Ice Cube the big one where just one right yes now you are you gonna get that I don't have it either I don't get it yeah yeah it's still was good it still was delicious I started off with a we start off with yesterday I start out with a vodka soda to soda then I went to two glasses of holy but you were mixing it with soda wasn't doing the trick so I'm like let's do a little crown royal we did I I did two glasses a crown royal doing the trick then and then the fourth class I ended with the run of the glass from China my god how did you and then what is it that yeah that's quite the mixing your mixology I yeah I'm okay with that I'm usually like I could usually I don't get sick by mixing stuff okay I could start with they are you know you've seen me had caught where I can be a martini then I go to wine when I go to two kilo over on the rocks I'm I'm still with you that such a myth it's not the mixing it's the quantity that you're still mad all the good and generally when you start to mix its large quantities that you're consuming anything that the the downfall right when you had eight beers then you start deciding to do tequila shots that's no good stop in three or four keyless shots for you it's like after dinner drinks like I stepped on the tequila hello I like a good step Glendon Rusch is a former Cobb he was one of the believe it or not what does that tell you about the for cubs all the time the three club cubs came so close the old floor because I thought they were going to win the World Series and they gave me a lot of headaches and heartache Glendon Rusch I always say is one of like the nice guys on that for team yeah there were some guys that I did not like but when he calls in right now for the biggest thing drop competition former cubs pitcher hi Glenda how you feeling I'm good what's up guys thanks for having me on the call and I know that he's bored at home the what are you doing to pass the time these days I am you know if being a dad working in the yard trying to find stuff to do around the house that's about it I guess same thing everybody's doing it how old are your kids I got a lot more in the fifth grader both boys wow are they baseball players still rather book plan and unfortunately they're not playing right now but they both enjoy it then there were you know book little guy I know when I was finishing up my career and my oldest one was that was a little dude but not on the on the dug out at Wrigley and and hang out the ID on family day so it needs sixteen already now did you make them throw left handed when they were around like one or two years just like you know I serve I gave them all my bad right you know one of them can run their balls right handed so yeah there what would would you watch this cubs team do what they did in two thousand and sixteen actually fifteen sixteen seventeen for that that that I mean did you watch it thinking that ultimately they would find the promised land or did you think the team was just never going to ever get there no I definitely felt like they had a chance and in fifteen and and I had a absolute blast watching my watch all the games I want all that out the games in LA at the time I was living in southern cal and then I went to three four and five the World Series at Wrigley do I want with Paul Baco and Kerry wood in a bunch about god not that four oh five nine era were all their state's pretty cool but you know in a way I was at game four in in game five the life was sort of restored but what were you when you were thinking when you're sitting there during four and it's all in the fan are you like oh boy here they go again or did you think they would have a chance to rebound and come back well it would leak for sure but I but I think that that you know they were so resilient and and you know but you got to go great tight knit group and and I think they just you know they they did what they're what they had to do and get their nose to the grind and Merrill to pull it out what do you remember about the I mentioned the for team because I had such great hopes and and it ended so poorly what do you remember most about that team how much fun I had those guys were so much fun I felt like I felt like I was going in you know you mentioned earlier I thought I was joining a World Series game really when I when I got there now or after what they did in all three and you know get the get the talent that are better team probably you know you know for and now we were just never able to get on that one hot streak especially down the stretch well like in August and September because that's when you need to get hot new year's number never able to do it then what do you think the the the season is going to look like I know there's so much uncertainty in maybe the predictions are aren't you you know we should be in the prediction business right now but are you still holding out hope that the two thousand and twenty Major League Baseball season will have something to it I am I'm a an internal optimist always you know can't wait for baseball season because I love watching I love following it good already yeah I know particularly terrible right now but we want to do one anyway but if I were to guess I would say that hopefully maybe like the beginning of July or something they could get something under way and we could be a part of it even with them double headers in a little bit of an expanded roster and you know who knows if they get in a hundred and two hundred twenty games and play deeper into the year we could stop quite a even the but obviously health and everything else first and foremost right now but I would love to see them get back in place I know everybody that that the Glendon who I told you about the contest in the call in all right there with that yep birthday the guy that he talked to me I get the budget during the cubs conventions over the years but he tweeted me after day about the terror all call it sounds like fun well we appreciate it you've always been a class act fun guy to talk to thanks for calling is so much going you can we can stay safe Glendon Rusch the former as he describes himself on his Twitter pages as former eighty eight mile per hour throwing average major leaguer for twelve season hashtag rose hash tag match hash tag brewers hashtag cubs hashtag Padres hash tag Rockies Hey listen if you can throw in your left hand there's a good chance yes you know you can find yourself a career and in Major League Baseball that's right thank you for a long time that's why we think that like you would put the ball on your kids left in a lot of people said that to me and I'm like I have my kids are going to be some pictures you know I I let them be what they whatever they gravitated towards a start using the right on the use the right answer but I know a lot of like are they righties or lefties and righties are they are in like there are a lot of parents who do who do that intentionally try to lead a kit and there's like band I think there are studies that are conflicting where some parents think you can or in some parents think that can't be taught I'm one yeah I'm one that does I don't I think you're you're born with a dominant hand I think maybe you could catch get your kid in the in the batting cage and maybe see if they could they could be switch hitters and again hit from both sides of the plate and but I I I'm reluctant to think that you can from an early stage get your child to be a writer left right that's the debate all right so whoever we had on so far down I mean the the quantity has been bank haven't we had on right it's the biggest name drop competition we've got me and gambling vouchers will give a special shout out to all of our sponsors the two sponsors of this great contest later in the show but who so far has the station had on so you got all it all started with a calf kicking us off on Monday with a gym for

monoxide or whatever it is then so be it my kids need to live longer than me anyway I don't want to minimize the participation of anyone in their role in life but I'm going to say that she's probably

"Color she's not gonna feel she's incredible man I love Sheryl Crow let's not only focus on Shallcross anybody we want her to call but let's not I mean not every cabin companies listener has to focus on Sheryl Crow we'd like to also talk to some other huge names start we've got to beat waddle and Silvy I'd like to think that we were winning after day one but right now after you know three days of the contest we got a deal we are running this we are winning this yeah no question of if I had a vote and I don't make the vote the boss Mike Thomas makes a vote but me in my eyes hate his area is the leader in the clubhouse not only was he hang his area he also was Brock Meyer and it was a hilarious conversation who else do they have call in day and Mike single Terry the end Patrick Renna they had Chris Chloe all right let's say I want to continue this discussion do you guys think truly as I had two people in the business tell me last night that we could be affected financially in professional sports and college sports talk about big time college sports for the better part of a decade because they said you're talking about years for people to rebuild their lives if they were affected by corona whether it was in a financial way whether it was with their health they said it's going to affect season ticket basis you're literally have teams they're gonna ask for your season ticket money I'm going to go about this is that over thirty years can't do it lost my job I'm out that were that was there at their disposable income then you're gonna advertisers who are fixtures we're gonna go we cut our budgets fifty sixty seventy percent because we have no sales can't do it but there's this school of thought I've read some articles that people think we'll just wait when they start playing games with nobody in everyone's going to watch the ratings will be insane than the advertising dollars will flow a few events NFL football maybe but they'll be a lot of sporting events they're going to fall by the wayside hundred percent the rich will get richer and the have nots will really struggle like if you were a player now and you turned down good extensions do you think that we're going to see it fallout of what guys get paid what do you think it will come right back al Robinson's got it you know a free agency coming up he's going to get paid this guy's going to get paid in that sport Chris brown's gonna get paid two hundred fifty million that do you think it's going to come back it's all specific to the salary cap I know baseball doesn't have one but they have the luxury tax but the other sports the salary cap the salary floor that's what will determine it right so like if you have to spend the money that you have guys will give the contracts I I don't know all right of anyone to be concerned about with what we're dealing with I don't have the the part of my being where I'm like concerned about someone turning down a four hundred dollar contract I'm not talk about that I'm talking about we're going to have stadiums where people can't pay for their tickets any longer yeah the everything so stadium mops as young teams are gonna have to change the way they do business hundred percent I get that I don't really care that Mookie Betts passed on a four hundred million dollar deal and now he's only going to get to seventy five C. ones and like I yeah my head where my head is that is there are people trying to pay rents today that's why people who are worried about paycheck to paycheck and just being okay to stay where they're at at in and getting through this okay so like in my head ally not your misunderstanding I'm not talking about the athlete perspective I'm talking about it's going to drastically affect everything that we watch yes everything to finish what I was saying is in my head the logistics of that type of thing I assume we'll just work itself out because dollars will go to that at some point now restaurants use your small business owners in your in your specific home town and where you're living at I don't know if the dollars will return or of those people will be able to re open their businesses so I just don't really like that the head space I'm in is not being concerned over how will billionaire owners be able to fill their stadiums that they had the public pay for for them to begin with your essay like that to me doesn't really yeah I'm not talking about that perspective I'm talking about the bar owner who relies on people to come in to watch said team said team can't do that it's like the trickle down effect is going to hit everybody everyone the act the ad revenue will not be there to the degree it ever was I think it's going to change the way we live like if they said to you July one okay you're safe to go back out eating are you gonna be packing in like sardines at your favorite restaurant I don't think I am well but I would yeah I would I would to have pause wedding day will see people different I think everything's going to be different what we're living through now is going to change the world forever in some will be a positive ways I think I think what this is doing right now is letting us take time to to be with our families it's giving us time if you had a hobbies or things you wanted to take care of always in life you don't have enough time to do things and what this is giving us is more time let's be honest we're not running to take our kids to support it you know their sports and after school programs we're not running to hang out with friends were not running to do things so we've got some of our time back so in that way it's a positive thing we've got more time back and maybe when this all ends will all appreciate our time a little bit more and not run run run run run and will realize that times the only commodity you can't make more up in other ways so I do think that the world's going to change take for instance people that work in offices right you may never have to go to one office again I think after this happens and people are working from home if you own a business and you're paying a great deal of rent to rent office space and you realize that your workers are just as competent and just as productive working from home why would you spend that money on office space and spend that money on office supplies and spend that money on insurance and maintenance and cleaning if you don't have to if your your employees can work just as productively at home yeah I'm just not convinced you can run a successful business long term I'm not talking about in an emergency where you don't have a culture everyone's working from home always but there's global like my wife works for a company it's a big company it it's a global company people on her specific team live in Cleveland live in Detroit live in London live in Paris she doesn't see those people ever they have a great culture they do they use zoom even not during corona virus so they can see each other they communicate really well so there you know when it would be that's a rarity most agree I think most big businesses most global companies they don't see each other not all the time anyways especially when you're dealing with offices in multiple cities sure little places like you know our company we need to see each other and be together to do our jobs but I don't know if that applies to the whole yeah I think it I think it does but thanks for some businesses have you run I fortunately have rolled out a little R. three one two three three two three seven seven six I'd love to have you participate in this discussion coronavirus TV is interesting viewing as well we discussed some of the interesting backgrounds were saying next you're.

"This is the voice of chutney, and my lovely host. Billy is not here this week. So I'm holding down the fort with a great friend of mine. Patrick Renna interim CEO and CFO of wall burgers, Patrick. Thanks so much for for being here with us. So before the break, I referenced the brothers. So I think a misconception. I is that you know, wall burgers is the name, right and the brothers. Who knows I can only imagine the speculations that people have to the brothers get paid to have the names. And then the brothers does show up when there's an opening, and in fact that is a misconception because the Walberg s- are very involved. Correct. They are very involved. Yeah. Obviously Paul is the creator of the food and the menu and the concept so he's involved day to day, but Mark, and Danny are more involved than you would think with their busy lives in their day jobs. So, you know, very accessible owners very open to feedback and really really good for the management team to be able to make sure that they're connected to everything that we're doing, and you know, Mark is obviously films movies all the time. But he's he'll he's one that on the business side. He's very involved on and provides connections and creates opportunities that probably wouldn't be able to get if it wasn't wall burgers. And then Donny is is a big brand guy. I mean, he runs a, you know, a band of his own. So he knows what it's like to build a brand. So he's very thoughtful and meticulous about the the brand wall burgers, and obviously the name the family name is attached. So they know their have their own personal reputations. And now the reputation of the business, so they're very cognizant of making sure that they're staying close to that. So it's it's really great. It's really cool in some ways. And and having Paul around day to day is it's been great for me. He's as much of a character as is. Yeah. He is a single hardest working man I've ever met in my life. So far. So what you see on the show that is his world running around never stopping. We'll do whatever it takes to make sure that the businesses getting the attention. Because of course, there's also the show the show. Yeah. And so that that takes place over the course of the year, but in a short amount of time, you guys them out really quickly. Yeah. So it's it's on any. So they film. I don't know how long we're not that involved. Not but don't film for three or four months, five months. And then they'll run the next season which will be next spring summer will be ten when our episodes that'll be the ten season. Okay. And all my mother is is very of the matriarch around. Yeah. She keeps the boys in line still pops into arm every once in a while. And you know, brings friends says hi to the crew, and she's she's a fabulous individual. Okay. So you mentioned so in addition to the wall, burgers, there's also on the Nova which shipyard aid delicious. Yeah. It's really good fine dining. I'm an accessible for everybody. Just a delicious I- dining experience for those. Who haven't been in domino bay? What's that menu? So it's Mediterranean Italian. Like you said higher end, but not Boston prices in an unbelievable setting on the marina. So this time of year a little cold and windy, but once that spring turns it you couldn't find a better spot in the south shore. Wall burgers also in that area. The original is right across the street. Yeah. That was the original. All right. And so I want to touch back on Dorchester because that was probably about a month ago or not even at this point here we opened December twentieth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Right before the crunch time to get that done. But, but that, you know, speaking about how much that meant to both the brothers and and to Paul into alma. Yeah. We found that location about three years ago when I started and they knew they wanted to be home, and they knew they wanted to find a spot Dorchester. So when this development came up, which is fabulous development on the back side. You can't really see it from ninety three. But if you drive in it just opens up restaurants, retail residential was important for them to be home. So finding that mental lot because it brought the name and what they've worked so hard to build back home. And I think what they're most proud of I won't speak for them. But I've heard him say it is seeing the kids that were hiring from Dorchester working in the restaurant, basically from the same streets that they grew up on. So it's just really cool to see that. And I think you'll see a lot of them there. And yeah, we're excited. It's only been it hasn't been even four weeks. Well, it's true that there is still such a commitment to what is home for them. I mean, even you know in Mark shooting, all, you know, the majority of his movies here, are you know, there is such a commitment. When there doesn't have to be probably the easiest thing to shoot in you know, movies in winter new in New England. Or or to necessarily be coming back to the east coast time. But there is such a commitment. And I imagine that comes from that amazing matriarch that they have there. So switch over to you for a second. Patrick. You've had a really interesting history in the industry and kind of grew up in the hospitality industry. Can you share with us sort of your overall resume over? Yeah. I grew up. My my parents, I grew up in Nashua. So my parents owned restaurants when I was a kid. So I was washing dishes when I was eight prep in when I was twelve and they get out of the business when I was in high school, but I decided to go to school for accounting and not into the restaurant industry that was my plan anyway, and then about a year after school. I started working for Chile's franchisee here in New England. Great organization, we ended up reading it up cheese at the time was a public company with Joey Brunelli, and we bought them, and I spent about four or five years with them and I've worked for different concepts all in New England. So I've been lucky enough to be able to stay here because that's not always the case. But I've worked for fire and ice and fresh city and Sebastian's which was owned by fidelity. So. I was in this big massive company running or as a CFO of a small food service company small for them fifty million dollars and I worked for Bolocco the fast casual reader chain for five and a half six years. And fortunately was living in hingham when the opportunity with Wahlberg came up and met the CEO Rick fans are at the time and started working for them in the summer fifteen and like I said it's been over three and a half you've seen them that three and a half. So we've opened in twenty six units in over three years. I mean, of course, there are so many changes that have taken place in your lifetime mentality industry. But I what would you say, you know, most recently, we're seeing in terms of the the biggest change or or the biggest change in the industry over one of the biggest changes which has been coming. And you saw it coming was technology off premise eating so dining away from the restaurant. So what you see now is this big shift in off premise delivery, third parties, these big companies. Cougars in Amazon door dash grub. Some really people, you know, eating away from the restaurant. So you you have to look at that changing your business model catering has become a huge component in the restaurant business. It's easy to execute. It's incremental revenue it is a different business to tackle. So that has been a big shift. You know, we're in this sort of split between fast, casual which is counter service, sit on your own and full service, and there's been a shift towards fast casual over the last five to ten years, but we're playing in a casual dining, which we like because for us. It's about the experience and coming into the restaurant and seeing the family know word on the wall or pictures of the family food pictures of Paul's created, so yeah, it's an ever changing industry, and you've got to keep up on it. And I'd say on the food side, you know, obviously, healthy healthy eating. So we're serving the impossible burgers, which is a plant-based burger, although we're mostly an indulgence. So we. Got to be cognizant of putting some healthy options. So we have salads and we have a veggie burger, and we have a portabella mushroom burger. So let's talk about the the the number of people that are under the wall burgers umbrella. I mean, how many people are we talking for the organization? Yes, we have about twenty five people working in the office in hingham, but across the country, you know, thousands of employees between all of the franchisees, you know, the franchisees all higher anywhere between fifty and one hundred employees, and we got like I said about twenty-five working out of hang them. Most of those people are on the road visiting franchisees, and then we have the brothers. And and and you and I sit on the board of the masters. It's resumes association, and you're part of the executive team. And then what will you know? You're you're constantly, you know, working with the state house and working, you know, figuring out where things are looking nationally versus where things are looking looking locally. Where does Massachusetts stand? You know across the nation when it comes to where we are for the hospitality industry. So we employ about ten percent of the workers in Massachusetts the hospitality industry. You know, the big push, obviously and the big discussion nationally as minimum wage. So there's been a big push in big cities are are passing passing laws to raise the minimum wage, Massachusetts, just did it. So fifteen dollars an hour by twenty twenty two twenty three. So, you know from the restaurant industry, it's a challenge to tackle. Because you're dealing with. You know, do you raise your prices now you've got to pay a little bit more? So we're service industry so tip wages come into play. Those are going up. So there's a lot of a lot of movement in the minimum wage labor. There's a big labor shortage right now. So you're stuck between this labor shortage and rising wages. What you don't want to do is have to pass that onto the consumer? But you have to take that into account. So it's a it's a challenge a real challenge. It's a real challenge to have you on the helm of the MRI just because it is a challenge in has to be sort of a day to day grind that affects like you said ten percent of our workforce the big number. Okay. Patrick, I'm gonna keep you around because I'm going to find out what your everyday amazing was this week. This is food for thought brought to you by the box, enter CNN second. Hey, guys, Jenny Johnson here. So I finally did it I went and got lay stick with the all pro team at Boston laser, and all I can say is I can't believe I didn't do it sooner. From start to finish the process was so smooth the procedure itself was twelve minutes..
Ham Porter talks The Sandlot
Creepy New Trailer For 'Slender Man' Movie Has Been Released
"We randomly talk about multiple weeks in a row, like always makes, yeah. Like what Willie walk had the long stretch that's currently the. That's the Cal Ripken of of running news stories, which we talked about Willie Wonka for a very long time. So that is Star Wars, and Charlie's angels. We were done with Star Wars for now, put a lid on it also by the way we're, we've been view in this episode what a great host. I am here not even setting that up. We have an interview with the Patrick Renna AK ham porter from the San LA, Kendrick, Jack, and I talked him for about fifteen twenty minutes. We don't have that in the middle of this podcast. So she'll be a fun one. Ken Jak admitted to him that he doesn't like the big green or like the big ring wasn't on his top ten list, and it was pretty funny exchange. And then let's move on next bit of news. Slender man, new slender man trailer. We kind of were anti slender man trailer when it first came out. This is a new one opinions changed. You wanna see more. You wanna see a less. I wanna see it even less. I think they're making this fucking movie after this horrific actual real life of that happened, not even half a decade ago. This is like. Exploiting it like another sound soft. You know, whatever. But I think it's stupid. I think just straight up stupid. It's dumb as hell. My opinion has not changed. You need a reference in this specific time code or talked about it before because I don't think we could summarize it any better. Fuck, fuck this movie. And I don't say that a lot. I do not say that a lot in this podcast, you know, I'm very careful with with saying bad about the brands in about the movies, but I just I do not like this movie. I do not like what they're doing with it. It's it's really fucked up. The stabbing was only like four years ago, like you're saying, it's it's necessary. It's not. It's not a famous event where you can whitewashed for the event of what for the profit of movie theater. It's silly like even Billy idea even like patriots day or they call it. The Boston marathon bombing movie, which was in sanely way too early to make a movie like that. There's actually been two of them because there is the stronger one, but that was don't hall on. Yeah, that was that was nice, but even even the patriots won like there was a. There's a positive story behind it. Right? Like the talked about the heroes of it in the moment of crisis. This is not that at all. This is just a fucking horror movie. Yeah, it's just it's, it's truly messed up. I big here. It's really, really easy to be cynical about movies and how movies get made and what movies they put forward. And I agree with a lot of that, and I think we do a good job on this podcast talking about the joys of the movies, but this is one of these where I am just so cynical against this movie, the concept behind it, why it's being made the character. I just I don't like it and it's not all due to what it's based off some of its that, but it also just looks like a crappy movie. And also what's up. I didn't see this new trailer. I didn't watch it because I'm kind of doing a self-imposed imposed a boycott. I'll get to it. Overlord there needs to be no, when the plane explodes, and then there's that affect. In just goes silent. I feel like that's used in so many trailers and an horror movie trailers. And I feel like we need to, we need to name that effect. Okay. Is in the moment to, I believe so plane crashing. Yeah. Okay. So it looked up you to know we're talking about and tweet us. We're going to name that because you know like the Wilhelm scream, you know the one that's always a movies, we'll we'll name it. All right. Lead us. Just try to find it here real quick and we're not going to do the editing, but I just want to play it. So people know this is the first raw podcast. Yeah, time minus splicing in the the interview. We have some point Argos here with us right here that. Put a closer..
