Spittin' Chiclets Episode 144: Featuring Ryan Malone and Teddy Purcell
John. Lou everybody episode one hundred forty plus big chip, let's presented by new Amsterdam vodka coming to you live from whatever Pacific Coast Highway. This is malleable, California. Let's say Hello. We got a big fruit today with dog. What's going on buddy? Ryan whitney. How are you guys? How are you on the back of the bus here? We're gonna talk talk a little louder right or we good good Ellie house. I on the good and the left of Mr. Woody as I overrun of the program. Teddy Pacelle, thanks for bringing me into the show left in California. It's been a blast into y'all left is one and only Bugsy Malone. What's up there? Bugsy? I'm having a great time. Our love your speaker got us going out and getting my full, wink, mindell on and to y'all left his one and only business d what's up Paul Bissonnette? This has been fun drip, so far boys. And for those of you listening. We're not going to do an interview per se in this episode, but we will. Have some brilliant hockey minds and teddy pursell in about half of genius from real genius hockey talk. And that's what you're going to be getting on this all star week, we act we've yet to name it as as of right now, and we're recording. And we're going to have Brett name off some of the names that have been sent into us so RA want you to kick us off. I liked hashtag chick. Let's go west get any love producer to eager granola. What's up guy? What's up boys going on going on while while we slept? Big news Lau, maybe if I was sleeping and the rest is, but pita sure Elliott as many people have been expected for awhile is fired as the general manager of the Oilers been a longtime common at a lot of disastrous moves there. We can we can name them. I will probably get this Jose by time with. But what the teddy would you take? Pita Shirley, finally getting kin. Never he was nice to males with them for about a year and a half an Emerson. He was open with me of the teams. I was gonna get traded to at the deadline. But you know, you always feel bad when someone gets gas like that especially a couple of years ago. It seemed like the new rink two boys were back there in the playoffs. They did. Well, they lost in Anaheim and seven I think in the second round. And then all of a sudden, it's like me and we're talking about today. It's right back to the basement again where they've been for so long and from playing there like it's never fun on care. How much money you're making your plan in the NHL? We're also competitive you wanna win. And when you're losing like that. And getting embarrassed it's you feel bad for the fans, you feel bad for the organization that has you there, and you feel bad for each other. But I mean, you gotta get out of it some way, and I guess they thought that cannon Pistol Pete was the first step. I did you see mcdavid quote two days ago, who is something of if you don't believe in this group to get out of this locker, and I'm like, I don't know if he knows of people guys players, they're people that don't believe in that team. But it was it was it had to be done. I mean, it's a bit said to me this morning in the shower goes, can you believe the Edmonton Oilers the worst team in the league again, like it's it still is the same way. Like, it's just it's shocking to see the best player in the world. And be that team. What I mean? And then excuses are all well, Malcolm, Malcolm cross enough to play together. We'll why does mcdavid Android software together. They're both nasty. They can both run a line one too. Like they gotta get players for those guys to play with. Yeah. I feel bad for the fans because badgen waiting what seven eight nine years getting some first overall picks you're like now we got mcdavid now were on the up and Apollo start the parade. You know, things are going. Well, you said they went to the second round got eaten game seven. And now you're looking at this team near like, we're not we're not going to be competitive for another five or six years we're burning. We we've now Bert the prime years of Connor mcdavid. No, no, no them burnt them yet. But they're burning them. It's got he's got four or five more. I would say like big time prime years. No, no, no. No, no, no. No, I'm saying like what I'm saying aren't Cardi over what I'm saying is is all of a sudden now you have another rebuild on your hands. So it's going to take them probably four or five years to be where they want to be as an organization, maybe make a run what would have been nice, and they should be there. Now. Now, they could've used this next three four years of Connor date of the mcdavid true prime. I'm not saying he's gonna fizzle off when he hits twenty eight twenty nine. But as the league shows us is guys are dropping off a lot lot faster because of the speed of the game. Now, you hit thirty in like, you're you're on the decline. I mean, look at guys business to Connor so good. He could win when he's eighteen nineteen twenty. Yeah. Right. Okay. That's. Around is the best player in the league. All he needs is like a decent amount of players around him. We look at Crosby, and Malcolm they didn't need the biggest superstars around they'd top players. Like look at who. Fuck like, PASCAL. And Chris Kunitz are household names. Because Crosby they were low low often I'll say Rimal on Ryan Whitney. See that's what I'm saying. What you guys were competent enough to like at least talk on your horse of the rope. But you gotta think the game. Yeah. You have to be able to understand the system in reach other. Anticipate what's going on Saint Louis was big guy was hot high hockey. I q. Yeah. But I also like the GM's tap, although the gyms like Peter didn't do any favors for those guys. Like, no all halls in Qatar can play together. Okay. Let's have to attend the two MVP's on one line each then pick your poison, right? And then that's that trait doesn't look very good right now. I mean, even looking at the at really trade like there's another guy like he gets labeled as a loser. Because of like, I don't wanna shit on their management. But like they haven't developed people in the organization like they don't go down there. Look at the way, Pittsburgh, develops their prospects. Look at the way LA doesn't they attacked tapa? Yes. In in. It's it's it's like there's so many factors that are involved in. Either they're bad, it's bad trades in. But you can't miss on number one. Overall, Jordan was a competent player that he's and he's very common plan. What was it Strom? I mean, it's like it's confusing that the moves they made I'll never being on the golf trip when the hall Larson trade went down, and it was all guys playing in the other, you know, the usual summer on. And everyone's like who else is in the train. I'm I got says once one they're like, no, no, no just must not be out yet. There was no explanation. Taylor hall, Adam Larsson, well, and a lot of people were like, wow, that's like ballsy of air Zona to trade away all recommend LARs. I was like even when I read it. I was like fuck might really. You're a big. And then it was not all the arson. It was the other one who's an atom. And I actually tweeted out I felt kinda badly. But Faulk do Shirley got fleeced. I know. And you know, like, it was really sucks those fans, but I feel I feel bad for mcdavid. It's hard to feel bad for God's gonna make three hundred million dollars. But when you're that good in that competitive this kid's he's a game or you can tell you doesn't he's hockey like his life. He wants to win. And he's sitting there like what is going on right now. I'm the best player every night three points. And we can't win a game. What am I supposed to do? And when you don't see something in the in the horizon or what is the distance? If you don't see something this you're gonna mmediately think like how much longer can I be here. It's only natural could you wanna get out. But it war years like he's he's going to have to win. Well, he probably thought to when he was drafted there. Hey, like now on the guy the piece that they needed in order to start scaling up again this team where needs to be and then a couple of callosum moves and all of a sudden he's like. I'm looking at another four five seasons of losing hockey. Throw. Let me tell you something quick though moment of clarity right here. In edmonton. It's tough city to be in when you're losing. I was there. I've made that clear, but right now as we're talking about the other struggling, I'm looking out at the Pacific Ocean with the Budweiser talking about he's so life is grand or others. Don't you worry life? We'll give better get better. Now pixel beats gone to the poor mustache shaped end where like a little too on his look a little born, sir. Stashes creepy. I know it's like November. I get in January. You don't need that stash still. You know, it's called now. Lips wetter? Behind his back. Yeah. I don't know. Now, it's right through his his face or arrested development when he's got the fucking the the ball had gone. Generational talent on his team is guys getting mentioned the same breath as lem you in Gretzky who by the way, they didn't win titles. If I either took Gretzky to what eighty five to win its first six years with took liberal. They were like competitive those years, you know, prime Crosby his first couple years. Pittsburgh was they struggled a bit for us up. His right just rookie year. And then we five bucks. Cheryl. He's not getting the job done. You've got a guy that good. Whether it's scouting whether it's a draft. And I it's all gonna find the GM Ted. And unfortunately, the guy who keeps making the same mistakes over over a lot of times the owner when you hire I mean, he kept Kevin Lowe and matab running the show away too long and unfortunate. There's no one who can fire an owner or like you yell at the owner. So as long as he keeps making stakes himself than the oils are going to struggle alluding to what you said about how they didn't win early on the Crosby and stuff like that. But when all those players came out of their entry level contracts. Their teams are now relevant relevant for a long period of time since Crosby's office at EU level deal out imagine the probably only misplaced like a couple times. And every year. They they're they're lease like, they're one of the teams to beat for the cop. I mean, they'd won three in that time. So the problem is is like all of a sudden mcdavid. Yeah, they didn't necessarily win that much in his first three years while now that it's over they didn't make a trip to the second playoffs. But now there's. Like, there's there's nothing in sight relief for the next few years at least I would say two or three minimum. Yup. To make some deals add like the pillars, but you look at the penguins. The added the guys down the middle. So you have one two three centers or a big defenceman goaltender in. Are you going to build your team while let's let's ask teddy in wit. Like, the problem Edmonton has to is is because of where they are. It's tough place to attract free agents and the only other possible way to beef up your guys ation now's you need to draft. Well into your players teams are giving away those core guys anymore. Yeah. You don't see number one demand get treated you. Don't see that any more. You got growing yourself. Look at the Leafs. They've they've been wanting a number one defense in for how long and there's unless they drafted development. I mean, you can argue that Morgan rally is number one. Now, he's gonna fuck and have probably ninety points. But you know, what I'm saying? But it's yeah. They can't get free agents. I don't see them being relevant by just overnight. This is going to need to get lucky next year and make a deep Ron to get those fears, and it'd be like when people wanted to go to normally go to Pittsburgh back in a day and sitting Malkin come and guys are going to need to have a couple of good years of sustained success. Like, maybe I will go there for fewers win a few pops. And then who cares? You don't have to live there forever. If teams good enough guys go their big face wants to win a Cup. Like, they'll go where you're playing if you're winning or having good season personally and as a team your fun, anywhere. And and you only there a couple years. And so what you're saying they need to change the culture internally in order to like you said put a few years together. And then it's like like, obviously if David gives a call and says, hey, I know you're big free agent. Like, you're going to be on my line. We're going to have some power to win some games. That's when you can start lure over so many. It's a little difficult now for McCain to call someone be like, hey, dude, you're gonna live in Edmonton. And you're gonna get yelled that when you go to the grocery store, people an anthrax to your home. They're going to run yet. A town. If you Ryan Whitney and visited run in town. I was limping by the way. So yeah. So they got a lot of work to do. I don't do every beating a dead horse here. As far as the next higher huge. They need someone to come in. And basically do it. Dawn Sweden Boston. And that's cleanup pita Shirley, salary Cadmus. Now, it doesn't happen overnight. You need a couple of shrewd moves a guy. Thanks a little outside the box. But yeah, he's put them in quite the pickle at some of the deals in that Ross the, but it's done done. We've been waiting for the fire for while. Again. We hate the guy who's job. But people forget these guys still get paid until they get high another job this. You know, it's not they get five. They don't get paid anymore. So it's you know, it's not all bad. Some good news though, for for coach guy, the coach of attorney pita, Latvia. Let you get a six hundred win the other night. He signed the only other American coach with as many Lorelei got over six hundred guys. Teddy around Budgie did either you guys play Laviola. I had him on world championships. None team USA. He was great. What y'all make some great coach. He was just really kind of black and. White with the systems kind of a quick, you know tournament over there. So he just kind of make it simple. And have a good time discount told you like it was and what he expected be gave you a role, and it was very clear what he had to get done. You always know still. I'm like, no bullshit with them. Yeah. I mean, I think any athlete. That's what you wanna hear. You know, if you're even missing games or not, okay? What what what can I do to get better? You like that right to your right to your face, whatever it may be. So you, you know, try to better yourself. Platelets. What's the other guy? Other American co I was with them into the Olympics. Yeah. Towards his tortoise. I loved like I could see over season him. We earn on guys for two week term. And he was great happy us having everyone had agreed. Yeah. He was he was coaching the D, And he was just like it's a little different, right? If your if your head coach, he was awesome. And he like challenges guys gets people fired up. Yeah. So it's it's it's good to see them American coaches get up there. And you see all these goalies like approaching win records, and coaches, all these coaches like getting more wins. It's you forget that they're climbing up these ranks because there was ties before so now since there's no no ties. That's why you see a lot of these current goal is getting into the top ten. Same with coaches with wins. Good point with. Yeah. Thank you. Another Canadian team. I want to talk about who's struggling as of late Toronto Maple Leafs. They've actually lost two in a row here actually little RA gambling corner. Fact from biz here this the eighth time this season. The Leafs have been winless in two straight the their game. Three result is seven. Oh and all averaging four five goals game in games after they lost two in a row, and then allowing only one goal against their and they have three shutouts in those games. So that could be a potential they're they're playing tonight in in Washington. You guys won't hear this tomorrow, you're fucked, but I'll take it. But I'll take it. So we're gonna puck and hammer that tonight, but they are playing Washington. So it's not going to be an easy game in Washington actually in Toronto. Just you know what though it jeeze? I'm really good teams. Don't really lose three in a row that often I mean to happen. But it's that's when you put a stop to it. And so I mean, the fact that they haven't lost three, you know, once this year, that's pretty impressive. But they haven't looked good. And it's weird Matthews hasn't been scorned. And we talked about knee lender. I I don't think we mentioned for someone asks Matthys of us like worried to score. And he's like, no didn't change. Why would I be worried? I'm too good to worry basically feeling with that be bad. We when we went like six games point. I'm like, I didn't get a shot in the last two weeks reporters like what do you feel and I'm like, oh, I feel great. Just lying new came nap suck on the ice with these guys. And then you just please let me just chip puck out and the guy takes it. And I get a second sisters kept me on the sheet and the newly celebrating the second insist you feel great the next op the next base up a little pop in your step, and you're buzzed on your point there. How good good teams usually don't lose three hundred dollars. Usually, you know, the veteran guys step up say, hey, we need this one tonight, boys. This could be a coin flip because it's also break. Lillies teams have ten days off some of the plates are probably getting warmed up right now to like get the genu- jet engine. Go away going overtime tonight. This is the first time the leaves have been relevant in in kind of a Cup contender since like social media's been around obviously in a market like Toronto it's fucking banana Lance to begin with. But all of a sudden man like you have all these young players who've stepping up and there's being articles written everyday like they were found to have struggles during the season. But as soon as the season started they were buzzing out of the gate. I mean, everybody was talking about various was fucking score. And they got their fucking Tronto. Boy back will now they've they're five hundred over the last twenty games and fuck everyday there's articles being written about every guy and how they should trade. This guy do this with this guy knee land or signed the big ticket is and scoring. Not. These isn't scored ten twelve games. Like fucking Florida. Fucking pressure boys. All of a sudden, I mean hockey's hard to. Yes. So hard, and it's good fit. Like, it just goes to show you how good those young guys are like Riley martyr Matthews. Neil lender. They're thriving in that market. That's uneasy place to be with all the pressure. You're. Talking about articles every day. I would be I know I think that they're so good that they do know they were lighting it up. I don't even think about it. But at one point you will matter who you are one point you're not school. You know, Crosby's even had in moments when they were like Sydney is never the year before the all-star break yet like thirty points. So for Napa thought he was done. Yeah. And for now these guys haven't experienced yet because they've just come into the league, and it's been all progression. But when you hit your first roughs black rough patch, then you realize in Toronto, then you're in the fire boys because there's there's fifty media members in the locker room some mornings. I mean, they're all asking the guy who's making the money wasn't scoring wired. You going Anita zanex. Yeah. And all of a sudden all these guys that they've drafted high are starting to be now their core group of players in the guys you go to at Verizon the mix in over the summer. Now, the expectations to win have been risen to a level that none of those players in that organization have have have seen. I mean, even to various views playing on Long Island, and he was kind of like the only guy there. They expectations to win were never really like if you don't win your fucking piece of shit and Babcock like his never caught any heat. He's a God. But now we start at the F if they like flamed out the rest of the year, and didn't you know made plans but for show like he's gonna start hearing it. But before there was no he's the greatest coach of all time. He can't make a mistake. But he'll get it. It's all they see his biggest flaw. He's very stubborn. And if it's his idea, and he's being let's say told the media, yo like analytically and in. Of course, the eye test is showing me that this guy needs to come off that line. He's very stubborn it. So that's one. Fault. Apparently, obviously, he's an excellent coach he prepares like crazy. But as you said, it wet this guy is is starting to feel the pressure just as much as other superstars. Yeah. For sure. And like you said, I don't know how there was a stat. He's only won one playoff round the last like ten years all stuff is going to keep you out. I saw that too. That stuff's going to keep coming back up if the leaves they have such high expectations. I know you're talking about Vera's like don't really know him. Well, plea like a world champions with them. But if if there's a guy in Toronto that can handle that it'll be interesting to see how he doesn't play offs because the expectations are. But if there's a pro and a guy that takes care of his body, and like does it. Well, like, he's he's the guy. I ask those guys as the game to the next level. I think when the pressure's on he had a note on my phone to talk about him. He was the biggest free agent signing of all time. And he's been so nasty, and it's into sports thirty two feet to Julie's doing people have no idea, how hard it is right off the reason that teams were blotting noble lunches order the fuck and hang out with them. And talk with them. Like, you're a big deal when they have to like do have a spreadsheet excel spreadsheet and show you what you're gonna do and make an advertising money. He had much that you cannot live like you can't live up to you know, and I hear he's exceeded it. I think he's better than people thought he was his first year, so far that's good. He's been so I still think with him you can win and you can make a run in the playoffs, and they got a bunch of other guys. But if it's going to continue like this there's going to be like I said, you're in the middle of the fire in one, I wouldn't I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It's a great point. Oh, yeah. Hey, what's up are over there? Also to kneeland defining does wake up. It's going to be almost like adding a guy you're almost like a like a deadline pickup because he hasn't done shit. And once he turns it on like a semi just take a couple of topple dad goals temple cheesy goals to get going. And it's like adding a guy that roster and the other thing too is I mean, if they do have a little bit of a slide that it's still there what CHU point only two points from the bottom seed right now too. So, you know, if you leave a bad couple of weeks Eastman, you find yourself on the outside looking in like rally, we got a nice t shirt made up for the buffalo fans. And what happens they went off the cliff like cliff like this side right next book. Oh. The announcement. Let's make the announcement wagging shirt. It's on the way, all Frankie Burrell. Parcel. He's a die hard. Islanders fans. Father owns a restaurant fifty years across the street from Nassau Coliseum. Kid went to every game for four years when he was in college. I guess go to pre-game skates, and he's just obsessed into now. He's panicking because Grenell. He's gonna mush the island is like a much the savers. I'm nobody's gonna catch tamper in the east. Anyway, so two three whatever match up that's going to be. It's gonna be a great series. I mean, I I love to see Tampere Boston. Again, we've gotten to on real series the last couple years out of those two, and it's funny with they don't even get like nasty like there's not a lot of like fighting scrap in a lot of scrummage just unreal. Hockey teams plan balls to the wall. So I love to get on one of those series. Yeah. Definitely. Thank you. All we got another little news. Do Alexander Ovechkin. He's only one point behind Sergei Federov for the most points ever in the NHL by a Russian. Do you think he's break it? All right. That's I mean, let's. I don't know do it. He might have put the whammy on the bucks. But do I mean you guys obviously played against against them with plenty of Russians in your day. I mean is he the best Russian ever Ovechkin? I know he's the best goal scoring. Russia have a but all rushing up. Our of I think goal score of all time doing in the modern day areas era as far as goal scoring. He just had a thirty five thirty fifth goals said thirty pretty good. I can't talk thirty five talks again after after boozing all summer, swimming, and fountains started no earned then it's almost like another monkey off his back. Now, he's acknowledged school at their enjoy it another thing, it's like even. It's like it's like so hard to describe what he's doing the goal also. And like, I know he has always got back from these guys. He's still got fucking scoring it open. I dunno back some stuff under rate on the Mino. That's of grave. But still you still have to you still have they gave you the puck yourself to rip one time or shelf. We were watching last night and they were snapping around on the power play. And all four of us. All all four was played. It went Causton Backstrom back to calls, and it's these Lovie as he's wound up here is like we all played guys playing. Now, they still cannot stop him getting set up and is one time when they get hit the crossbar, but just missed the net. And he's gonna win will those coming for him can lose those chances. Never not. He doesn't have to move that much on the power play there. And he's always going to get it's been what fifteen years and the can't stop it. So I don't know. It's just you said perfect. You can't describe what he's doing. It's so hard to get a goal and H L remember harder. You score. You're like thank God bugs. God I needed that. Two weeks ago other one so it was like, then he'd celebrating cheers of leaks three to come fill. Fist-bump after so from the corners and to the net got considering we're talking about Bugsy teddy.

We had a good group of guys, and it was fun to be ov it. What was the funnest rookie party in that amount of time? You guys actually had one in Scottsdale. I lined up w so many rookie yourself T before the rookie party. We're good at that. One one little quick story. Bugsy makes me every time. Like, these guys are big butting fuzzy told a story about like Sanders to. Yes, that's so this one's pretty similar with where mastro's or maestros in the back Bugsy and SME we're drinking all day, and they got a little excited, and, you know, the little like crab little crab legs. They saw little fork. Gladder to see yachters a little four. They took Bugsy took it. Yes. You did. Claw? He didn't know the fork in it through that. You got him. And Mike in your motor, Kenny. I'm getting a little excited. Anyways, Bugsy gets hit by a lot lobster Clark right in the side of the head. Smitty, Chuck's across the fork still in it. So what I do. Hello. The Fritz last. Open. The fridge back on that. That's taking ownership. There. You're gonna buck on you take notes quick plug for a sponsors dropped. The Budweiser beer's. Budweiser Canada, Jaap them all over the floor here to pick them up and certain interrupt your sore there Bugsy all your family. So what would you do when you? Took the lives of cloth the temple he got towels leaky, I tackle the blood was a little thin that day from alcohols, but he wouldn't say any Arizona heat us lucht address. Day. The sun's bright down there. Wait what? So did you end up dumbing them? Tackled him. And then they broke up and then the trainers out of like, glued my like eyebrow. A rookie. Party casualty news, I think. Yeah. I mean, we're was like Steve down a headman with a rookie back then we made him wear like the the bike tights like what you'd wear under your gear. You know? Tight Shirley, then we put hockey helmets on them. So that we're the helmets authored dinner. We thought that was a good idea. And then some guys exotic NOP gun a few crazy guys on the team like this last this break over your helmet like went off. Optus from near my hometown. He's a wild, man. Played played in the Brynner's bottles over there for a while. He said he's supplant. Syracuse teams like nasty morass the those guys and you didn't want to go up more than two goals because they turn into a fight fast. You always wanted to the game clo four one it was gonna be fucking Noli are medieval times dinner and turnament third period. Plus the he'd come in store coming in addressing disco ball in the old Tampa Bay room, and he put all of his dance bring shot tray full red Bill come up on my who's this average team? So I wouldn't have the red bull hardware was at two sixty before play. It was it was a good guy team. Couldn't even stick handle because about red bull shots before the game. He was like warrior, obviously anyway. Usa come in the locker room with red bull shots come in and shut the lights off. Disco disco ball goes off light light start going. You're. Skin flick, the lights tray with a Gatorade? And everything on. I'm usually trays filled with red bull shots of Bush. Oh my God. All right. We kind of got off the rails. They're real it back in any type of hockey talk. You got any announcement stray. Let's couple signs business in the last show. Carolina, reupped, Toivo terrifying. Five twenty seven million dollar deal. That's average annual value of five point four million. Seems like a pretty good price for he's pretty talented guy. Also Edmonton, and it was pitas rallies last deal as GM I believe he signed Meco cost into three deal for thirteen point five million for four point five million average annual value. A lot of people are freaking out about that. I don't know if it's a bad sign. I think people just so frazzled with Shirley at this point that any signing did people are gonna freak out at all the problem right now is is obviously people are confused because they're hearing that the team was aware that he was going to make that signing when they were also wear that they were gonna fire him. So it didn't really make sense to license. Give him the reins to do another move that people are gonna question. Maybe they trust. I know it's only like twenty five games this year. He's actually played pretty good at times. But I'm watch the game last night. I felt badly three muffins sign after signing right after signing thirteen the half for three months. I felt so so people are confused at the mixed signals at the organization's going because some people have talked to the organization they said, oh, they they were aware that they were going to do it. And they said no that was strictly Cheryl, he's moved so more confusion to put the cherry on top of this ugly situation for Emerton. We don't really need a dive right into. Again. That's that's I think that's a good sign. That's a guy like him. I was surprised when Chicago traded him. He seemed like a guy that was like maybe a little bit young and he's insures gotten stronger, but he was smart. I was made good hockey plays and him in at together are sick that does actually annoy always say this. But he's one of the better your first round pick. I'll was the first round. I think he was a hot team. Yeah. Yeah. Carolina is a good example of how. Emerton needs to do some of that. There's a team that have made some really good moves and really bad ones. I'm still a little confused at the at the the fan and win home move for for Dougie Hamilton, the there's a couple other. Berlin back now, they can't they on the right that Hamilton's on the block again. Let's put it this way. I put Carolina in the same category as Florida's for sometimes they make really good moves. We are like, wow. And then other times you like watt. And then the owner comes out. Remember that quote? It was a hilarious quo's. I rather lose games. Five four to two one. At least I'm having fun. He's a we need some scoring winner wingers. Just traded Lynn home. We have ripping Skinner as one hundred goals. Yeah. She could go without that. They don't want to spend that much. We we never even had any scoring whereas to get some guys like they're always low on the cap, right? They don't wanna they don't spend a ton. Here's the thing though. Then like so that you get Dougie Hamilton. I'm swimming is making close to six and then what are you gonna do? Are you going to resign him? Apparently, there's I don't wanna see issues with them down there. But apparently is another guy who's names pop up on the trading blocks. So you're like, okay. Well, that was a major piece in that trade used to chat home Hannah fit in Lynn hall will fit in great and Calgary. There were two young studs at what point are you knocking elects not actually stunts and there's thinner fucking hats. A man rockets we've talked of that before on the show too. But just like I said to Gary trades, and then some very good one. So Carolina another good one there. So yeah. Really for news on the NHL. What about last couple of days in LA whenever recap that a little bit for the for the audience. Last couple. I say how about the bartender last night not serving us icing. Through the story jar. Kind of set it up a little bit. And we're gonna have to tell the truth. When bugs is done talk. Oh, wow. It okay. Anyway bar. So does it right. They got the house here for the fellows. I got the camera crew everyone's together big happy family could get good business. I love and I'm like, all right? I'm gonna maybe treat the voice by a few cocktails. Visit up the bungalow. On that's a little bit of a Dushi crowd. So we fit in perfectly. Yeah. We had our we just did our own fun things. But anyway of Dana few guys around that are, you know, younger in life. Now, they're kind of getting out exploring. They get to parcel set him up only always fun trip. So I was kind of teach them this little the drinking game we play some golf trips. So almost thirty nine to kids and retired. So when had his trips on my schedule, usually circle this green, light fasten green, and I seen. Gimme the green the red. Option, but pick your poison biz mentioned hit before where we bumped into you in Vancouver couvert. I you know, it was a Sunday for me. I hadn't been going hard all weekend. These guys on the end of a bender. And I'm just trying to have a couple of Casuals and fucking ice keeps keeps getting scooped at my drink. And he's like jog, your drank and bucks a bully. So when you fuck it. It's more fun. Please mixture. God fair not fair enough. So back the story the story so rat and Dana Rettendon and Anneli obviously is excited about this game. So you separate little distractions winning. Brett was talking to Nellie show, Dana, slowly, speaking out the ice cube out. Now, his who asks he was turned to the side right guard, boys. Cheers. And he goes reached glasses puts up, and then you gotta finish your hill as means chug automatically right away. It was more for the people that are, you know, in the group that are probably hurting in there just holding it for like an hour. Then you look at him like one is he left, you know, just been Milken. Okay. Two things here. You had a little pep talk with Dana and brat who said mom, dad. They can hang. And you said, no, you can't hang with you. I'm gonna teach on. We know his one getting really pushing the he's like I love this game. So it's like this team up and try to get some of the other guys. So we started doing fun even okay to pull your own ice out. Self inflicted pain. Well, I mean. And then I haven't gotten gotten in long enough time, I need to get myself. Okay. So then you guys got cut off from getting ice in your there. The bartender. Just having a good time with us all even the what the one one time. Like, I took it out the ice at the bar. I was getting the drinking and brought over as the joke and the bartenders like to serve them no ice on. I was like. While I was like, he just thought you. Saint Cloud shots like they're like, the drinks, Saint Cloud. Okay. All college reference the mid west. So if and then to conclude the story Brett ends up passing out on the beach, or would you do on the beach on the beach, and and then Dana wet the bed. So he can join me in the bedouin club, which we're not embarrassed about he says it happens once a quarter. I would say that's how often happens to me.

They've been buzzing big win an auto pay one in months, you're all bond on up on. But I I had an unbelievable time at the all star game last year. And I'm very excited to retain this year. We were in Tampa Bay. We're actually there fell. That's bugsy. That's your stomping grounds, I'm sure you've done. Well for yourself down there. We're there during gas Gasparilla is that what it's called the IRA festival. Insane. But he was it was it was insanity. That's probably why on the side of the road everywhere. Overwhelming. Yeah.

What are you doing nothing? For the free trip. You go to one of these weekends other than biz I watched on TV for like twelve years ago. I went to the game when we're able to score though, T winner backhand, but maybe not OT with twenty seconds. And also gave him Boston youngsters one that I remember watching you know, he played in an all star game. All star, you're on the less. But and then I remember that kid watching Mario in Pittsburgh all game like five we only get three goals the first period. I get five it was. It was pretty cool being a kid to the all star game. This is fun. You'll be a fun experience for everyone. Well, another another reason why we brought you guys on board too. Because you guys know some of the players going play with some of them as well. Stamkos is going. We've talked a little bit about him. And your guys interviews, but there's any we'll get in touch with him. Maybe get him on the bus or the RV. Peer pressure and strong arm. Even sits it's going down. That's another that would be Hewish curious. I actually. Creature? These Faulk said the creature back on the creature. Got it. Sits big enough. A lot of people like you hope you get a good nickname because it sticks since the guy was like that's not going to be my nickname. Oh, they get say that about that.

After week. We go home and change. I I don't wanna go to the bar Bugsy has six thousand three piece suit on looks like Jane bond, all and he called a sudden like he had elaborate key. So like this place is on the corner of the street. So you could hear it coming down like a half mile away. Bugsy was becoming all of a sudden the people like my friends, come and parking like, yeah.

Deny imagine like somebody cut you off and. It seems that the nihil stories I wish I know it makes you look like a lie open. He's opened up a lot today. Do whatever you want. Nobody bugs is a guy that lives in the present. He used to take pictures of them too. Because I was I was like so funny. I'm trying to remember what he's doing. He's take my phone. Don't do that.

It was like taking the pats Mahomes has been Stuttle year. But it's so hard to bet against Brady in the playoffs. And you think these guys are all coming from Boston too. So I wanna be on the same teams everyone and cheer together. You don't wanna be at scumbag that like dang only win everyone else loses. So it's like you take any action on the game today. I'm like, yeah. I got a Toyota Corolla on it. Hit laugh. Oh shit. That's money. It was tax. And I was like what does he need? Dana. Like that means how much bet like one Toyota Corolla cost.

Everyone wants to be around like this contagious idiot. And you can't say, no, I think he's my new best friend us might move in with. Coming over to me at the bars. He's just so fun to drink. Take them is love, and I find that. When he does it. Did love it. It's all about the boys. You know? Sometimes like I said you look at the times when you're away from the game. It's the BUSTER is the car trips with laugh I had a face lift golfers are face just hurt. We came down to my Gulfstream at one time new, and we were doing the we were like we're having a great time raising hundreds of thousands for the kids then it was like time to like. Yeah. Go play. Yeah. We deserve it. So then like Bugsy was doing the ice trick. And everyone knew we was room from people were coming up to them like Pugh TI set of my drink too. She's. She's. The bucks take their in Drink, Man. Hey, man, I got sick a nasty bug on my stomach and puke for three days. Miss work lost a lot of money, but I don't care. Let them give me sick any day of the week. If you can't your them. Yeah. Don't like burning them their drinks. All man. It's always good is an older guy to like, you know, when you're young and. Yeah, it's great take care with Amran. You're young when you're yeah. Looked after all of us. And then we'd like, you know, when you're younger, you're single you're trying to like go to different places if it's places in the best like your go somewhere else. Yeah. Just chasing it all night and end the night. It sucked you'd ever knew. Exactly. And then we were doing it one night bugs like, whoa. Whoa. Time out any fair to do all these tricks. And he's I guess what boys fun fines us and so true. We'd have in a shoebox. It's the most sure state, and then every time we went out after that. It's like so good final hits. And I told the story one time about my buddy says just start smiling. And like if you're just sitting around and laugh with people just want to hang out with the guys laugh at. Like, we always do the fake laugh at the team. We wanted table. Even like the guys you'd be at the pre game meal and Mardian Bugsy K. Let's just start crying ladder. No reason. So we just died everyone. Feeding look at Brown. I know. Wicked full one table soul back. That's remember we shoot check report mile underneath meals. I I would always try to find the answer. It sucked. Opus if I wasn't playing which is fifty percent of the time base game like eating even after restaurants. You're nice place had a couple lots of wine or like a little loose like doing the lafley. And then we start doing that having so much fun people. Why those peacocking? We did it at my buddies wedding. And he was like sitting along with the bride up up upfront, and he finally bombed over what is so funny over here. Like, he was so mad that he was my weather. What are you guys laughing up? I need to know this joke. That's really gonna go. Sorry, no, smiling read, a wedding laughing. Sorry, man. I know is supposed to be so serious at the wedding that open birth scumbag. Oh, speaking of weddings to get into buggies? Wedding do shoddy gag put a tattoo on your body was the most undercover funny guys you guys ever played with like someone that wouldn't expect that you'd never talk about. At least in your time. And tap. Louis is funny. He's very you like in dance, and he sees funny character. So he was there at that rookie party where you guys set it up at the guy set him anywhere. Not happy obviously woke 'cause the price of that. I don't know. I'm trying this funny story wearing like Beck city for training camp. And some of the guys are from Montreal. Like we had the schedulers we had like a scavenger hunt. And like all this stuff. It was like didn't give us any time to like hang out. And and then so we went out to the bar one night. And finally, we're all their mardi was Marty's prankster still value that so I've. Mardi behind the bar. But like Vinnie's from Montreal to everyone knows Vinnie. So Marty's character smarty get behind the bar. He's like, he's still circus, midget, he's like dancing around. He's happy. But he puts his two thumbs over the to vodka things like the ball Vinnie's gonna look at me. And like wanna do it to be the man because we're both from Quebec puts his two fingers over the vodka and tend to Chuck. Like dying. And then I want to do that. Gimme that many vehicles back actually does like too low. Aren't doing it against their? He's like. That binny's. Vinnie like good team player. Captain, maybe leader next day. He was done. Do you? We always have dance Marty is like oh spun team the next night, but bugs to the bottle. I. I wasn't gonna Vinnie drink. That's for sure that's development. It was a good time any other RA. What else you got four up there much else man going on? I mean, some the last couple days not a hell of a lot we want. We kind of went over everything you guys talking about the coyotes for other is not again, you guys been enjoying the view, man. This is fucking unreal. Scenery. Man. It all this is a fun show to do on the road. But you'd take a look out of the beautiful Pacific. I mean, they got the cliffs here Pacific Coast Highway. This is great, man. It's fun. It's it's it's beautiful. Why don't we why don't we ask him about who they think the front runners are to take the Cup this year? Who were some teams you like I mean, I know that now that you're working with Adam Oates, you tend to watch a lot of hockey release a lot of game tape who do you like I've seen obviously followed around tap a little bit. I've seen them play. When they're out here. I'm an old playoffs are different in an injury could could screw up on where other just one injury. But I mean the way they're playing right now and how they bounce back. Even when they lose over. Seven-game series. Like, I think they're going to be hard team to beat in the east that are always playing good get headaches plan, thirty minutes guys, like Girardi Colbert, and these guys are playing well. Are there? It's their time. Like they've been. It is power play is in. You're not going to get that many power plays in the playoffs. But they have four lines. This come at you and waves and speed or like who who are these? It's amazing that they can play that pace full sixty whose whose sites are who's in Matthew Joseph like ten goals around was he drafted in. It's like the young kids are just come up, and they're nasty, right? All they all got the little edge to like will to drop the gloves stand like that little extra in the playoffs yet, they won't get pushed around Taipei personality. Cal thought it shit Scott at they're very controlled in it. But they got that their ears. Now think about it. If you're gonna win the Stanley Cup out punch, my mom phaser Stanwick. I mean, that's. Algae thousand nineteen. But I think we get what you're saying headman the guy that I mean, he's probably the best defense in the league. Now, we don't really talk about him a lot on the pocket. He's kind of undercover. That's why likes in Tampa to right. He can be him self. And he doesn't need that media. And all that like, what's he like? He's awesome. Greg. Yeah. Austria, great personalities eighteen and didn't want us another thing. Like, those GM's you are talking about they let those young guys about like at early on like they're like some rumors about getting rid of, you know, but he was like, you know, big piece of the puzzle, but they stayed patient with rid of him or you kinda hurt. You know, what you're like the state patient with them. And I mean, they really, you know, patience is kind of thing all Tronto often games, seventy two more. And this is a crazy thing to say, and I might get smothered for, but he's essentially become what Lynch from became to Detroit where he's giving you thirty minutes every night or maybe twenty five or you know, what you're getting every night. He's a robot. And he's became that player. Like you said because they've allowed them develop make mistakes and learn from yet. Yeah. But I mean, they you surround them with the Girardi mcdonagh like those are season vet mcdonagh hear about them melt. You don't hear about him any more like down there doing his thing? I'm I think that'd be my favorite. But while token, I mean, it's gonna sound a little bias because it's it's really been tampo flooded episode last. We do you guys. I like Winnipeg Winnipeg sick but the west like Winnipeg Nashville see that Vega. Winnipeg Nashville Vegas, and then San Jose's coming that. The west is taught out is so hard. I think the west is bigger heavier game too. Especially off to watch it west game. It's a war. You're like fast scary. But didn't you think Winnipeg was gonna try? I was wrong about Vegas all season. But when could get back there again and not I think all thing about okay? They battle their off three rounds. Get into the final against hamlet Tampa's flying in those big guys. Keep the pace your plan for the Stanley Cup out think. So right. I mean, everything's on the line by hitting on the nine. Bever are run. Like, clearly like, I just thought that was just went by so fast. All of a sudden always shit. We're in the final two and a half months felt I think every other night you have a game every game is so fun. I'm gonna miss the most is just play off. And then you get the suite on the road with your team. And you're all and you're playing cars, and you're having dessert, and then yeah, you get you get treatment to get misogyny taken Ambon go right upstairs. Wake up on game day. Plus, he's played you're and so calm while you're on the in like, you've already been modem three thousand six, oh, you know. Remember, I was playing good though. So what what the what you guys are into all the scribe it for fans. Of course, you go on the road for what four days because you're on the road city seem city, which even after games you stay in the playoffs to it's kind of like how baseball is the whole regular season. And at that point to like, you know longer have the pressure of the regular season to get into playoff. And as the rounds go on like there's no more game this game by looking there's no looking forward. And and once again that pressure's kind of off a sense where it's coming from within. It's either you're going to get the job done or not. And if you do have a bad game, you're not gonna get stalled it or beg skated. You get and just go to. Yeah. Boys. You're doing it for each other. And then as you mentioned, you get the room on the road where they set up like an XBox guys are chirp and you playing. A room. Good time. You're watching the other games to and then you're getting fired. And we always go back to this. If you've gone that far chances, are you have a very close knit group. So it's even more fun. And then yeah, some of the most fun of how the roads in those hotel rooms, the big sweets plan video games Chirpin gun. I mean, the playoff games. Like, I remember the first. Okay, playoffs are different like what? All right. So we're in the play against Ottawa the first period shots, twenty two. I think that ten guys on the ice. It just came in with simple hockey ship it in runner guy through the glass, shoot it from fucking everywhere everywhere goal line goal in that. It was just simple down to just. It was just chaos. Rex is. I think they also like are Whitney's on the ice gone. Charter what we wanted the heart hymnals, motherfuckers. Yeah. But it was it was an eye opening experience where you get teams. I mean, the games change obviously now, but the north nor south hockey, playoff hockey, you gotta get going right guys aren't taking time on the back. They're going back just as are going forward. And there's no it is not that much time different beast, and you have to elevate a lot less time and space. It's that's why. Cricket for a difficult. Sorry for the the euro some comment in verse plow experience, so not only are you going from the international ice to two regular season NHL ice. Now said you had even less time and space in playoffs. It's different based in as you said before I sit Gino they're willing to throw down came to it. Right. Leaders loss veteran as well. He'll lead physically do whatever you do. What you gotta do. So I wouldn't ask teddy question teddy. What's the minimum view to go back to play in the cage elegant? I was there for four months four years. So that's like dog dog years for one for one season. What's the least do it? Take you to go over the cage of one full season had to training camp to training camp. So July July sign a million cash lie seventh to March. They go there ten months over there. I'd they have the semi twelve million cash before I got on a flight and another paid for my flight to. Twelve million in two thousand three thousand because I class. I gotta be honest to ten million probably do it. But the extra two. Training camp. The training camp is the only issue like the regular season to y y trinity and it's long and he's twice a day today. And then you gotta run ten kilometers a day. We were we were over there once and the I don't know if I told this story we had to do played on a soccer field for practice like my beard Bogor's frozen down to my top lip and after practice two and a half hour practice with forty laps soccer field. No other cookie. Joking. Sick minus thirty two he couldn't breathe I took my Nick. And I threw it so skating. Relative speeds here on my my back was cram shoulders are done for what show. What shoulder all they're really nice. Oh after twenty laps. They made a school the other way. So at least they were nights on that. So I think I might have mentioned this one of the interviews. We did over the course of the all star break. But Jeff Carter said that Cova Chuck would've been a great guest on the show because he's pretty vocal guiding. The guy's been everywhere. You know, got some unbelievable stories, but he's he he's a little of set of the cage L bashing that we've had on the on some of the podcast. So he's now not gonna come on. But I thought what better wait sorry. That's my fault. Well known. I was getting bashed on social media to even have a lot of followers. We had. We had journalists me too from Russia reach oh, translated. It's like broken English comes back difference. Then you just get ripped even more. But but I thought what better way Chuck is a great guy, though, before you came out here, I had dinner with him and daddy he leaves? He was at heaters house, and we live a couple of streets away. So went down and talk to him live in like Beverly Hills did not even close to the practice. Fakey driving for hours a day. But he has a rule. I'm okay with him defending his country. When I think I think we should come on the podcast and do it. And maybe correct. Some of the things that maybe you guys have gotten wrong not saying that's the case. But he seems to have different opinion than you. I don't think in baby wits mine about it. I'm being a baby too. I wasn't not ready for that. I wasn't ready. But I'm so now already what anything else in the hockey front. No. Last ten minutes with the Ashby last ten minutes ago. No more signs now being like, guys any hockey news. Each time is like, Nope. I remember this other time picks up and then tell you know, to tell the story about this. Along going, Mikey? But our. Else you guys want specifically talk about on this to be something here? Let me go take a piss you guys can continue. We'll talk about what business jacket talk about business jacket. Furman is how much was that five hundred lease that we don't even I think it was four boxers at Barneys New York. Sammy piece oh dared me to buy it and wear it out to the bar, and he would pay for half it if I did it, and I think I actually mustered up killing it. So this things my little, Molly. What a good conversation. Yeah. It's a great conversation starter like you get dressed in the dark playing tetris. I think I'm busy strip. Asked. It's BP. While teddy what else balls? I know. It's so hard should save a couple of stories for the weekend. You wanna blow you're gonna have? We're gonna have more for everyone. Anyways, we still have three is it Wednesday Thursday if four nights all my body is a long trip. But yeah, so we'll have more. Yeah. So we'll wrap up right now as business in the bathroom, hopefully pissing on that jacket. Thank you very much for the Senate, and thanks so much teddy and buck, the both you guys. Thanks.

#865: Tweak This
Support for this NPR podcast and the following message come from Alfa Romeo, the twenty eighteen Alfa Romeo Juliet, awakens your senses and provides a unique driving experience, learn more about motor trends, twenty eighteen car of the year at Alfa Romeo USA dot com. The other day I had an early morning interview and I ran downstairs to get a Cup of coffee and ran into the guest. So I turned on my recorder and I kind of bartered her with my maybe we should say, were you? This is Kathy. I'm sorry. I don't know my you might need to get my name. That's probably the easy question. I'm Katherine ram, Pell columnist for the Washington Post. Specifically, Catherine writes about the economy for the Washington Post, and it occurred to us that actually a coffee shop is the perfect place to show this thing that infuriates, Catherine. All right. So you're looking at an ice tea, what size you looking for. And I get the sixteen ounce ice tea. How much three fifteen with tax. But it says on the board SU eighty nine is twenty sticky. It's a little misleading. Okay. Okay. So maybe that sounds like somebody buying ice tea and then having to pay tax. But it only sounds normal because we've gotten used to it. What Catherine sees here is one price on the board, and then this extra hidden thing that she has to pay for and it's not just taxes. Sometimes it's fees and service charges that seem to appear out of thin air at checkout and drive us all crazy, booking rental cars, buying concert tickets or like, have you booked a hotel room recently? Sometimes there's an internet fees. Sometimes there's a parking fee. Sometimes there is something called a resort fee, even though you're staying in a place that does not a resort, it's by the highway. Anyways, Catherine brought her ice tea into the studio to explain why these fees and service charges are not just annoying. They are bad for the economy. Companies should be competing based on price and quality and not obligation. And the fact that companies do compete on office Gatien does not create a better economy. Does not create a better experience for consumers and Ken, in fact, raise prices for consumers that they're buying self that they don't want. Everyone is a used car salesman. I have very good friend who's a used car salesman, so I, I don't want to denigrate that profession specifically. So what is your one tiny tweak that would change the world? My my one tiny tweak is that we should require more all inclusive upfront pricing, including taxes fees, particularly in common types of consumer purchases where people like to comparison shop, the price should be the price. That is how Catherine ram Pell would make the world better with one simple tweak. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm Nick fountain and I'm Kenny Malone and sometimes on planet money, we tackle the world's big questions, but today on the show we look for small answers.

We have a suggestion for how you can get more money from your boss, how to make the most boring sport little less boring and how to take down the wedding, industrial complex.

There is a pump branch of the musical family tweet that his Latin music and other hundreds Cabello is one of its pioneers is new album picks on immigration and American identity in a loud rockets and always insightful collection of new salts. Hear him. Talk about that at some of the history of Latin punk on all that Dino. Okay, little tweaks that could make big changes to our lives. Go first idea comes from a labor economist at the university of Notre Dame Abigail, Wozniak. So I have actually a little wind up if you are interested. Yeah, wind it up the moment at which this occurred to me was a couple of weeks ago, so I am naturally a football fan since I come from Green Bay Wisconsin and I was reading about Aaron Rodgers contract negotiations. Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers over the summer. He was asking for more money from the Packers and what caught abbey's. I was this quote from Rogers where he said something like, sure, I'm in a multi million dollar salary renegotiation with my bosses, but whatever I've got an agent, he's dealing with it. I'm just gonna keep practicing football. I feel amazing. And I thought that just doesn't sound like any kind of job negotiation that I have ever heard. Anyone goes through personally. Right? Like a normal person, a non. Celebrity quarterback, they're like, I know this is a good problem to have. I know I'm getting a good job at this is the most stressful thing I've ever gone through, not whatever someone will fix it for me. Yeah. And I think the thing that popped into my head was more people should have someone like this abbey Wozniak's tweak is all of us not just famous people should have agents. Now, she's not saying this has to be your own personal Hollywood agent or even an expensive lawyer. We know about those kinds of jobs. She's saying, maybe there's a different job that doesn't exist yet. It'd be some intermediary. You pay a flat fee to and then they'll have a couple of conversations on your behalf when you need it. So imagine Abby gets a call, hey, if the university of Michigan, we'd like to offer you a new job. I would say thanks, that's exciting. I'm using this new service. This third person is going to contact you with my questions. Is it? Is it weird to think about actually saying that to someone offering you a job? It is weird. But it's all weird, right? Abby thinks that having this intermediary negotiate for you could be a huge benefit over the course of your career. First of all, it would be this person's job to study your field and to know what your worth and this takes a little advantage away from your employer. Secondly, she says, there's research showing that if you make less at the beginning of your career, you're gonna make less down the road. And so the sooner you bring someone in to negotiate a great salary, the better that is going to be for you. Also, Abby says this intermediary could help deal with some of the things that add to the gender pay gap. Well, it's clear that two things happen. One is that women don't quite ask for the same things that men will ask for in a negotiation, but there's also evidence that when women ask, it's not received the same way as when men ask. So again, in intermediary helps to fix that a little bit. I think socially, it just kind of jams the signal a little bit. If we're going to name. This new profession do? Do you have an idea like what would we call this thing you know negotiator, I think is maybe better than agent in terms of just capturing more what's going on. It's good. Talk to my negotiator. Knock do that. You could say neutral party, but I'm not sure these people are really going to be neutral. Intermediary is accurate, but also kind of bland. Yeah. So, yeah, like negotiators good. I like negotiator. I'm not in marketing. Yeah, everyone needs a negotiator. Love it. The negotiator also a nineteen ninety eight movie starring Samuel Jackson. What happens. Go sheets by. Kenny has left the studio. We assume to go watch the negotiator, the nineteen ninety eight movie by Samuel Jackson, and in the studio now is Sarah Gonzales. Hey, Sarah, hi, Nick, your tweak is about the wedding industrial complex, and we gave you this assignment because you're about to get married. Congratulations. Thanks and might tweak comes from Dame on Jones. He's in a communist at the university of Chicago and Damon year planning wedding right now, right. I just recently was married in June, you just, oh, so you're out. You're in the clear AM and clear, but I do have to write thank you notes. Are you behind schedule? Apparently you have up to a year to send out. Thank you notes. Yeah, who makes these rules and the the timeframe down from the wedding, God's. I don't know that I would call them the gods. It would be like the wedding gremlin day Mons tweet has to do with the way we think about wedding registries. I hate wedding registries everyone. Hates them? Yes. It feels like this sideways way of asking people to reimburse you for like their dinner in their booze. And Damon also says that you can't even ask for what you really want on a wedding registry because it's just a little tacky. There's some gifts that are not acceptable to ask for, you know, can you give me season tickets to the Knicks, but for some reason, plates and forks acceptable. We have enough place. We have enough folks. We don't need any more of those. I feel I'm here on the force in plates like maybe that made sense when those things were handmade in Pennsylvania. But like this stuff is getting cheaper and cheaper, and throwing a wedding is getting more and more expensive. So here is Damon's tweak, I say, let's discard registry and maybe just have some tickets. Good old-fashioned tickets for the wedding weights, sell people tickets to tend your wedding. Okay. We wouldn't use the word so I might be an that popular in. Instead of a wedding registry. So like don't buy me a gift just pay for your plate of food at the wedding. Don't buy gift just help us to to have the best winning ever. You want to use the right gift. You may want to charge different prices. Okay. So no. Different prices for different people. Okay. So a flat prices easiest, but it's not fair like maybe you wanna cut your undergrad, college cousin a break, but your investment banker friend, she's painful price. This guy is cold and calculating, and I kinda liked it. He's an economist, but hear them out. You have plus ones. Okay. Oh, so this ones are working? Yes, yes. The plus one issue is you have a really good friend that you want to invite your wedding, but they have a new boyfriend or girlfriend and that she don't know they, you know, and now you have to spend like three hundred or person for their food, their booze, their chair, their table, their fork yet. And if you have to pay for your new girlfriend's ticket, maybe she doesn't have to come after. Maybe she's not so important to you anymore, and there's another big benefit no-shows. Can you believe. That you're going to go through this entire process in only to have someone maybe not show up now done Tommy reading. Okay, so I understand that it's a risk I'm taking. Yeah. So why not share the risk? You have a deposit that's non refundable on your, take it, and if you decide not to show we understand and we also appreciate that your deposit is going toward the food that's going to be sitting there cold and uneaten at the wedding. Okay. So Sarah, you're getting married in about a month. Are you gonna take Damon suggestion and charge for entry to your wedding? No, no, I can't. I'm not even asking people to give me gifts, but I am going to go on the record right now and just say this publicly, if anyone are as BP to my wedding and fails at the last moment like that is not cool. We're not going to be okay. At least tell me two or three days before, so I can let all the vendors know, Sarah, thank you so much muscle. Tough. Thanks. When you're out there, can you get Kenny to come back in. After the break. A modest proposal to make baseball more interesting.

How much would you pay to avoid morning traffic? Why our plane tickets to Boise so expensive. I'm Cardiff Garcia, co host of the indicator and every episode we take on a new unexpected idea to help you make sense of the day's news. Listen every afternoon on NPR one or wherever you get your podcasts. All right. For this next tweak, Nick, I want to introduce you to Lieutenant Danny Roman. He is a top hostage negotiator for the Chicago police department. I'm just kidding. I just telling you the plot of the negoti. How was it? I still have a lot to watch anyway. Are actual final tweak is about baseball. It is also probably our most controversial tweak, yes, major league baseball knows that it's games are a little too long, and so they've been trying their own tweaks to speed up the game. Little things like limiting the number of warmup pitches making the commercial breaks between innings shorter, and that's all fine. But if they really wanted to speed the game up, they would be a little more serious about listening to tweak proposed by this man. My name is Steven Bram. I'm professor politics at New York University. You like baseball. I'm a fan, but not a rabid fan now, not one who's willing to blindly. Follow all rules of baseball. I suppose. No, I propose some reforms, Steve and some colleagues have proposed what is now known as the catch up rule like guy. You want catch up a mustard on that guy. Just not that kind of catch up. This is the kind where if you are losing you would like to catch up Steve. Can you give us the simplest explanation of the ketchup rule in baseball? It works as follows that if yo- the team ahead in an inning and your at bat, then you get only two months rather than three outs in that inning. In other words, when you are ahead, you get fewer chances to score your opponent, who is losing gets more chances, Steve and a colleague tested this out using historic baseball data. We looked at the one hundred thousand games now many one hundred thousand. We went back to nineteen sixty seven fifty years. Okay. And we analyze each pitch. For over one hundred thousand games and asked if the catch up role had been in place, how would things have changed as an impatient baseball fan? How much shorter would these games of bed? The average game which now vast three hours and five minutes would be cut by twenty four minutes. So you cutting almost a half an hour from a game has one of the biggest game? Yes, and not only were the games shorter. They were way more competitive, which Steve thinks would probably help baseball with its declining attendance. So how have fans reacted to this? Teeny tiny, tweak to America's pastime. Well, critically, I would say, let's just say there have been a lot of angry baseball fans, but Steve is not here to win a popularity contest. In fact, he tells us he's also got a version of the up rule for America's actual favorite sport football in the NFL. We would give the winning team only three downs rather than four downs to make a first down Steve. You're like, you're blowing up every single sport. Oh yeah. We have an idea for basketball that we would instead of giving the team ahead twenty four seconds to shoot. We've only eighteen seconds at the end of a game. Mike, how you are true, I Kana class. Well. We'll see what happens. We don't want to hold you any longer. Thank you so much for coming in. Yeah, thank you professor. Thanks very much and don't go to any baseball games anytime soon. You might get. Yeah. It's thrown at you. Is there a tweak that you would like to see in the world? You can Email it to us. We are planet money at NPR dot ORG. We're also at planet money on the Twitter's. And instead you're so hip, Alex cold, Mark is our supervising producer Ryan earth's. That is our chief episode tweaker. I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Nick fountain. Thanks for listening. And we have one more extra special guest joining us in the studio today. Do you want to introduce yourself? It's me Danny Roman Lieutenant, Danny Roman from the negotiator in the flesh and you, you apparently have a tweet for us today. Do great what he got. Never say no to a hostage taker. It's in the manual. It eliminates options. The only option that leaves is to shoot someone understand it sort of makes sense. I mean, I don't. I don't know if that technically qualifies us like a tweak. It's more like a vice patronize me who tenant. No, no offense then no. Again, I'll kill somebody. I think they, we're gonna end this interview. That's really too bad because Danny Roman was just starting to.
