Greg Kelly of Newsmax Discusses Dad Ray Kelly's NYPD Legacy
"Greg Kelly, are the son of the famous celebrated New York police department commissioner ray Kelly, who I've had the privilege of meeting a couple of times. So you have a very interesting background just in terms of being a real New Yorker. Well, that's true. And by the way, I'm glad you pointed out, yeah, you think it's kind of obvious the left is wrong about law enforcement. However, and they've been wrong about law enforcement for a long time, but there was a shift starting in about 2011, 2012, where and it really went into overdrive in 2020. Where the left suddenly started to ignore rioting and pillaging and the death and destruction of riots. I mean, the left media, they always had sympathy for those usually perpetrating the violence all the way back in the 60s, all the way through the 90s that Rodney King riots, but they still condemned the riots themselves. And they didn't really sugarcoat it. And that all changed in 2020. And it was pretty dramatic. So I wanted to address all of this. I wanted to figure out how it happened. And you mentioned my dad, I dedicate the book to him, it was a remarkable he is a remarkable law enforcement figure. And he did so much good when he left his position in 2013. His personal approval rating in New York City, which is almost majority, was used majority non white, was at 75%. Which is kind of crazy. When you think about it. Well, it kind of tells you that no matter what color you are, you don't like crime.
Fresh update on "ray " discussed on The Bitboy Crypto Podcast
"Welcome to BitBoy crypto. My name is Ben. Today we are in Denver, Colorado. You guys can see. There's Aaron and Jen walking off, look at them. Guys, a couple things I want to talk about tonight. Obviously, you haven't seen me in a while, probably. She's doing my videos. But we've been doing some more fun records while I'm gone, so you guys will get my thoughts on what's going on with the market right now. I think we're probably going to have an interesting weekend. I think next week we're going to be over 25 K so take a look for that long when you can get it. We have a dip at some point. That's my opinion on what's happening in the market, but I want to talk about a couple of interesting things going on right now. Number one, ripple just hired a new president. Now, they hired her for men internal. Her name is Monica long. And I think this is very interesting because her main position in the past was dealing with on demand liquidity, ODL. Now ODL is there as they said in the article I read. They're leveraged cross border transaction, you know, platform that they're using or process. Now, ripple used to have three that used to have three products. X via X rapid and X current. They've gotten rid of those now. So now they only have now they only have ODL and ripple net and ripple net is basically the software that all of the banks are going to use to be able to process cross border transactions on the blockchain. I hope this random song playing in the background does a demonetize this video. But if it does, oh, well, who cares? But the point is, is that ripple is making really big moves right now, regardless of what's going on with the case. And do you think it's coincidence that we're getting towards the end of this case and they just hired a new president. Personally, I don't think it is. I think what you're seeing is ripple is positioning itself for when the case is over. Being able to push the on demand liquidity here in the United States. And I think that's what we're going to see. You know, the only the only thing that has gone around to more places than ODL in the United States is me or the past few weeks. They said, hey. Hey, is it photo bomb? There we go. More people. They don't know. They don't know this video will be seen by a lot of people. So there was a 5 minutes of fame. Point is ripple's position itself the array for the end of this case. And it's going to be phenomenal when the tab and somebody asked me to meet up tonight or book to meet up book tour meetups going great, by the way. If I'm grabbed, catch up with crypto but yet, make sure you do. To make that the meetup today, do I think ripple is going to move after the case? Yeah. Yeah, I do. Do I really believe it? Yeah, I do. Now, depending on where the market is, depends on how high it will go after the case. But what we're really looking forward is the liquidity on the exchanges when it's realistic. So that's the first story I wanted to cover. I think it's really bullish for ripple. Really bush with bullish for the end of the case. I think they're hiring a new president if they think they're going down. They're losing not. Ahab and Brad G, nah. He knows they're winning this case. Or settling. The settlement is the better scenario. Talked about before how if they, if they went out right, now we're going to the Supreme Court on, we're going to go to the Supreme Court on appeal. We don't want that. We want this thing to be over. And what's really interesting we'll be watching what happens with Gary ginsler over the next 6 months to see if maybe him getting removed from the SEC at some point might play a factor in what's going on with ripple in the case. The other thing I would say is that big news broke tonight about FTX. We have Caroline and Gary Wong. Caroline Ellison Gary Wong. There are no longer cooperating with investigators. And my opinion, I think that what this says is potentially is that Dan friedberg might have more information than Caroline and Gary on what really happened. And what he's saying may actually counterbalance or counteract some of the stuff that they're saying. So this is very pivotal as you do watch the FTX thing continue to play out because guys, this thing's not going to be over until people are going to prison and then also tell people are getting their money back from FTX. We'll have to see what happens in that case. Of course, John ray, that they released a thing from John ray or in his law firm that a ton of people working on the bankruptcy are making $2000 a day or $2000 an hour. I can't remember which one it is. Either one is insane for people working on this. Guys, that's who's paying that. Customers because of our funds with FTX. So just want to make the video for you guys tonight. Say, hey, we're going to be doing more fun records over the next several days. We're going to be in Austin, Texas. Tomorrow night for our meetup. So I can't wait to go eat some barbecue, hurt our egg and some gordo's donuts. We're going to check that out. And that's all I got. Be blessed..

Adam Klotz Publishes Video Following NYC Subway Incident
"And here's the Adam clots video from Instagram where he explains he doesn't know when he made this video that his assailants didn't go to jail. They were sent home to mommy and daddy. Check this out. Hear me out though. You should see the other guy. My side, don't laugh. My side is worse, so much worse in my face. The thing is, the other guy? It's not really a guy. It's children. Like, 5, 6 children. Where are the parrots? God. Don't. Don't. Don't let your kids come beat me up in the middle of the night again, please. Watch your children. I feel like that last post seemed like maybe I wasn't being serious.

And they decided, all right, if he's not going to get it, then you're going to get it. And boy, did they give it to me? They had me on the ground. My ribs are all kind of bruised up too. They got their hits in. But that guy got out of there, he's fine. And the cops grabbed a couple of these kids and, you know, I got x-rays, I'm okay. This is all gonna heal. So it's all good. You know what I mean? New York City. New York City. Oh, what a place. The Big Apple.
Sean Davis: The FBI Was Conceived on Corruption
"Faith and fidelity to our institutions is almost completely gone And how Christopher wray who claims to be an institutionalist it just continues to ignore this It's just stunning to me I mean he's almost at the point now where I believe damage wise He's as bad if not worse than Comey Oh he's awful He's absolutely awful There's a little difference between the two and that I think ray is just generally incompetent and cowardly whereas I think Comey himself is just pure evil But I almost think it's too easy to blame the problems at the FBI on ray or on come on or whoever people forget that the FBI was conceived in corruption Okay this is the agent that agency that J. Edgar Hoover ran and he had them blackmail and come up with blackmail information against members of Congress and politicians The FBI today sits in the J. Edgar Hoover building Okay So I wish it were just this nice great institution that had always been doing good fair above board work and just a couple of bad apples got in the way I don't think that's the case I think that entire institution is rotten from the ground up it needs to be eliminated and defunded and we actually need to find a way to have a federal law enforcement agency that doesn't exist to corrupt everything in politics and in people's lives based on what a ruling regime happens to think Because look I don't like red China I don't like Russia but day in and day out in this country the FBI is the biggest threat to our freedoms and liberty Bigger than any other single entity in the world right now It's the FBI If the FBI that's going and throwing people in jail for having the audacity to walk into a public building through a door held open for them by police during business hours I mean it's criminal

"This classified documents scandal And I believe John that it is a rather small scandal in the bigger scheme of things that I believe in I believe Biden was a foreign agent I don't mean like 007 CAA I mean the economic sense of a principal agent problem in that there was money changing hands filtered through his son that was clearly meant to influence Biden I mean Hunter Biden's admitted as such Now your PC yesterday that I covered in the hill where you wrote about the Soros connection in Ukraine is really stunning Because it really speaks to this bigger problem how there were Ukrainian interests to arm and get money to Ukraine way before the war by people like Kalani yuk and others who were lobbying for this Daria Colonia And those were Biden interests too interest as his son was on the payroll of a Ukrainian company Yeah listen all of the foreign ties are troubling now because you see so many instances where Joe Biden each and every time acts in the interest of his son's clients And let's just go through some of them that we now we now see The most recent one this just happened in the last year Joe Biden works for the University of Pennsylvania He is a guest professor there against $911,000 for two years of very light work basically lending his name to a center That university gets a ton of Chinese money as soon as they get that Chinese money What are they doing They're lobbying the Joe Biden administration to shut down the FBI's main counter espionage program And before long boom America Garland goes any shuts down the very program that by the way Chris ray the FBI director says is so important In fact less than two weeks after Joe Biden's old employer which was flush with Chinese cash makes the request put survivor public Merrick Garland complies and shuts down a very important counter espionage program for the FBI trying to keep Chinese spies out of American academia

Frank Gaffney Joins Dinesh to Enumerate Threats Facing America
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast, my friend Frank gaffney. He's the founder and executive chairman of the center for security policy in Washington, D.C.. It's I think tank and a research foundation. And Frank is also the host of secure freedom radio, a nationally syndicated radio program I've been privileged to be a guest, the website center for security policy dot org. Frank, welcome to the podcast, great to have you so much going on in the world. But let me start kind of at home if I may. We just had an anniversary of January 6th. And I think you told me right before we came on the podcast that you somewhat jokingly refer to January 6th as ray Epstein, now Rey ups, of course, was not one of the honorees at the January 6th ceremonies. And yet he looms as an important unanswered question mark around January 6th. Talk a little bit about what you mean by why is it rape stay? Well, first of all, thanks for having me. Dinesh, it's great to reconnect with you. You're one of the people I admire most in the world. So it's always a delight to have a chance to interact with you. I call it ray Epstein because ray Epps is the only person that I know of who was not only caught in the act of trying to precipitate the invasion of the capitol. Not only on January 6th, by the way, but on January 5th as well. But he also we learned just recently buried in the bowels of that January 6th committee report texted his nephew on January 6th that he was at the front with a few people and he quote orchestrated it.
Rep. Troy Nehls Discusses His Book 'The Big Fraud'
"The big fraud. You've been very focused on the January 6th issue, the one 6 issue, tell us about it. Well, you know, leader McCarthy asked me to be one of the 5 to be on that select committee, you know, Jim Jordan myself, Jim banks, and he asked me out of bed the only freshman on it. But he's exploiting my strength, and that's my law enforcement background in it for 30 years this year for a. So I know a little bit about January 6th because I conducted a very thorough investigation into it. And Charlie, what it was, it was a law enforcement failure. Now the sham committee, Benny Thompson, Liz Cheney and everyone else on their committee. They're trying to blame Donald Trump. They release their big 840 something page report the other day. Donald Trump's name is mentioned like 4200 times. But I tell you, most of your viewers obviously have heard the name ray eps, ray app should have been arrested. He was on the FBI's most wanted list. He was actually on video trying to incite a riot. It would have been a felony because it was serious bodily injury or death. And he's never been arrested. And so the fact of the matter is, ray Epstein's name was listed zero. His name was mentioned. Zero times in that report. So I'm looking into it all. I'm going to show we have showed the American people and my book the big fraud that it's not Donald Trump's fault. It was a law enforcement failure and I detail all this in that book.
Best of CES 2023: Wireless TV, delivery robots and in-car VR
"At the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, a Chinese electronics company is showcasing new augmented reality glasses that listen to different languages and provide almost real-time translations. TCL's ray neo X two AR glasses are fitted with binocular full color, MicroLED optical waveguide displays. They project the AR content into your field of view. TCL Stefan strutt says the AR glasses automatically detect and translate conversations on the glasses screens. So you can have a face to face conversation with me and even if you don't speak the same language automatically translates with subtitles. And now nice to meet you. Strike says in China, the ray neo currently offers 8 different language translations. I don't speak Chinese. I struggle every day. To communicate with the people there. So for me, that, of course, it's going to be super helpful. The goal is to have the glasses on the market by later this year. I'm Ed Donahue
Damar Hamlins Charity Foundation Approaching $7 Million in Donations
"I want to give a quick update on the young man demar Hamlin, I don't know why it's so weird for me to say his name. I just don't remember his name doesn't ring in my mind. Like demar Hamlin, it's not like a Ray Lewis or something. It just doesn't ring in my mind. However, his the GoFundMe account, I wish I only go for me, man. God, dang, they bring in the bacon. People, millions of millions of dollars raised over all these platforms, but regardless of that. His GoFundMe is called chasing M's foundation community toy drive. And his original goal was $2500, which is weird as an NFL player. You would think other players would hook you up or something. He ended up raising 10,000, but after this incident, 200, I mean, this is as of, I don't remember when I printed this, but this was like not too long ago that we printed this. Oh, at 9 a.m. this morning. So that was pretty a pretty long time ago. I could probably look up the numbers as of right now, but I mean, he's at 62, $6.2 million raised 205,000 donors. So there's a lot of small donations, and I think the biggest donor was like $20,000 in the course, all the guys in the NFL supported. And I just want to say this because I said this yesterday, but it's been on my heart to say this. It's that God works in mysterious ways. If you can not, if you can not see that this is a God thing, then I think you are not in a position to kiss the blessings of God when they come through.
What's Next for Sam Bankman-Fried?
"Sam bankman freed pleads not guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges. He doesn't have to go back to court. I believe until October 2nd of 2023. So basically, he is free for approximately ten months to do whatever is he's going to do. So just because he pled not guilty doesn't mean he is in fact actually not guilty, most people plead not guilty anyways, not a legal expert or anything like that, but that's just what I've seen in the TV and stuff like that. But again, we're talking back about the names that we're going to be remained secret for now from the other two people that posted bond as well. It's important to note. But since Jen's back and I miss her, I really, really, really would like to get your take on this story. I missed you too, Wendy. One day away from you guys, and I just had to come running back. I love you guys. Well, I think it's not surprising, right? Sam bankman freed went on this PR tour. He kept saying, I didn't know I didn't know. I didn't know for him to clean guilty. I think would have been a surprise. What I'm interested to see in October is, you know, we have the new CEO of FTX, John J ray the third, we have Caroline Ellison and Gary Wang who have taken plea deals. These people probably have a lot of evidence against Sam bankman fried. That would say that, you know, he maybe was a little bit guilty. And so I'm interested to see what evidence comes out. I'm a little bit saddened that we have to wait until October for this to happen. You know, Sam bankman freed's going to be at his parents house over there in California all the way until October, you know, living probably a pretty cushy life. And so I just, I don't know how this is going to, how this is going to turn out, given all of the evidence that we've already seen come out against him. But Zach, what do you think? Season two, baby. It's shaping up to be a good one with ten months of craziness that's going to unfold. What if Sam starts tweeting again? What if he starts trying to make things right with his users? What is going to happen? He's probably talking to all sorts of people. Reporters, anyone out there still trying to get his story out to the masses.

"That I have now, because I would have been, I would have been less stressed. I would have been less on top of things. They've got to figure a lot of the stuff out themselves. And I can tell like my 16 year old, I can tell Riley, you should be training. You should be doing this unless the love for doing that comes from him. It doesn't matter. He's got to find the love in the sport. I have to, I would love to go back and just ease off a little bit. For sure. And I would say this with all parents and I'm sure it's a very common thing, but remember why you're there. Remember why you're at the game. You're at the game because your child wants to be there. If you pay for extra skating lessons, because your child wants it, it doesn't mean that they're going to turn into Connor McDavid. No. If they want it and you can provide it, then you provide it. If your son or daughter wants skills coach for soccer and they've got it in their heart to go do the work, that's all you get from it. You get their enjoyment out of it. You don't do it because you think, oh, maybe one day at the end of the day, there's a payoff for all of this. Their childhood support their childhood. Well said, back to Instagram and again, the spirit of the season from dawn of Hamilton, right? In the Christmas spirit, what are your favorite Christmas traditions? We always have a big Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, actually. We have a Christmas brunch cami loves cooking Christmas brunch and it's got all kinds of stuff like that we might not normally have. And I just, I just love it. I love seeing how happy she is when she makes it. Because she just like, first of all, I don't know that I can accurately describe what the kitchen looks like when it's finished, but oh man, it's so good. So we have that. We also have, I think the last decade, we've had the elf on the shelf. Oh, nice. And we really, we really get a kick out of that. Moving it around and hiding the elf and everybody trying to find it and I don't know if you've seen and I believe it's on Instagram. And I think it's out of the UK, but this little guy wakes up in the morning. And he's got somebody who's taking a marker and drawn goggles on his face and the mustache and everything else. And beside his bed is the elf on the shelf holding a pen. And a little guy is so bent because this elf in his mind has done this to it is sleep. So I just get a kick out of that because unfortunately, or fortunately, I guess, depends on how you look at Holly and I didn't get we never experienced the alpha to shelf. You know, Katie and mason are 23, almost 24 and 21. Yeah, you know what's going to happen though drinks? When they find their partners and they have their kids, there they go. There's the elf on the shelf of their tradition. I can't wait to get a part of that. Yeah, it's the best. I will say this about Christmas traditions. Yeah. When we were growing up, nobody ever beat the Ferraro's with their Christmas lights up, ever. Really dad was on it like that? Yeah, because he put them up one year and they stayed up for about 11. Straight. Right through the summer. Multicolored too? Multi colors. We'd go with dad. Why should we take the lights down? Nah, then we just got to put them back up. So I got stung by the company that put up our Christmas lights. Yeah, you mentioned that. Yeah, yeah. So they're clear. I think I'm just going to leave them up there. Just in Ferraro tradition. I'm leaving them up there. You can't barely see them. They're clear lights. And not turn them on. Dregs, and then next November, you can say to your buddies when they come over. See, I am again. First up with the lights. On it. Yeah. So Brian mudra, I don't know if you've noticed or not, but he's a constant contributor to ask grand Drake's ending. What is money got now? Yeah. More time with no golf, by the way. Well, his question is, does dregs like old fashions do you it? The spelling is ridiculous. He spelled completely incorrectly. No, I don't. And nor do I like manhattans in my reason is, and this is just going to sound like a ridiculously shameless plug, right? When you've got the quality of whisky that we're furnished with, you don't mix it with the nonsense, right? So I can appreciate the old school people out there like the old fashioned, all of that. So there you go, muddy. He sends in a question like every two weeks. So I think we should take a couple of hockey questions. What do you got there? What do you got? Well, let me just peruse here. There were one or two that I thought were interesting. You know, we haven't talked about the Vancouver Canucks in a bit. And boy, for the first 15, 20 games, we talked about the Vancouver Canucks on The Rain drags podcast a lot. So we know that besser was like they'd be traded horvat likely to be traded. Maybe somebody sees a fit entire Myers. And I mean, we know they're open for business. So put your GM cap on here for a moment. What would you see as Brock besser's value in a trade? And after you answer, I'm going to just kind of round it out a little bit because I have a thought on this as well. Well, you got to remember two years left on his contract. Yeah. Which will bring the price down because it seems like everybody's looking for one year or expiring or that type of thing. I don't think it's a huge return. I think it's a difficult contract to make fit. Unless he can find a way to start scoring again. At the pace that he was scoring prior to getting hurt. That to me is the biggest challenge. So when I say not, you know, I'm not, it's not a first round pick. It's a higher end prospect or second round pick. Okay. That question from Canucks 5. And I'm actually going to lump in the next one, which is am I far off from Twitter at, what's that? Am I far off or no? Or what do you think? No, I don't think you're far off, but I'm going to lump. I'm going to lump in this next question from Twitter from at P dog 57 to explain because he's asking which of the Canadian teams are most likely to make the biggest splash by trade. And I mean, it seems pretty obvious. I mean, let's see what mercury all does. But Vancouver is the most in play here. So I think it's going to be Vancouver. I think your assessment of what the return on bester is, is fairly accurate, but I think there'll be some flexibility there, depending on what you get back for bull horvat and maybe some of the other pieces. You know what the needs are or what the wants are. They want a young center, right? They want to a young right shot defenseman. They need to clear off some cap space. I feel like they could be a little bit more flexible with besser and take an NHL player back. If it was the right NHL player, young NHL player, and they shaved some of the cap hit off by moving out vessel. So I think that there is some flexibility, but as a one off, if it's better going out and you feel like you've got to shave the space elsewhere, maybe simply by moving orbat, then and the 6 million that you probably going to have to shed and moving out Tyler Myers, then I think that they can probably get through that way. What else have we got here? So many different ways we can go. Oh, all right. Well, let's stay with Canada for a moment. Are the oilers in trouble ray. This is from at Daryl 43, or do we think that they're going to be okay once Vander Cain comes back and hopefully they're goaltending stabilizes? Well, I'm almost certain the oilers made the conference final last year. So with that becomes this expectation that there's not going to be a dip that it's going to be continued growth, which generally doesn't happen. Yeah. They were fine cocaine got hurt. They miss Cain on several levels. If you look at the forward group, Cain was gone, Yamamoto, I think it's got three goals. This year. And was injured for a good part of it. Those are those are two of their top 6 forwards. Or top 7, I guess. I think they miss McLeod when he's been out. I do think they need to add another defenseman. Are they okay, man,

Now you're playing the Hartford whalers or islanders to the rangers, whatever the scenario, and you're going to put a little money on the board. So how much is there a percentage on the guy? Depends on the guy. There's no real formula for it. I assume it's much more than when I played. We used to actually tape the cache on the board, but now they just, now they just write it on with a marker. And whoever's the treasurer or we used to call them the fine master. They collect the money and at some point during the year you'll have a team lunch or a team, get together of some sort and the fund pays for that. So, but you get traded guaranteed you're sitting in a locker room, like if it was when I got traded to the islanders, I'd be sitting in the islanders room and somebody would say, you know, come on, Razer, these guys didn't watch anymore, how much you got on the board. You'd have to go up and put your cash up there. And then pissed off you were. I mean, if you were really sour, it would be more. And if you put up a little bit, if you were a little light, you might get a few boos and then there'd be a little pressure putting a few more dollars up there. That's awesome. All right, another one from Instagram from Nathan. What is the role of the fourth coach behind the bench? Because Nathan says, as we all see, I see a lot of benches now with four coaches on the bench. I guess it kind of depends, does it? Yeah, I'd like to answer that for you. I'd like to answer that for you. I'm not real sure what they do other than it's just another guy back. Honestly, I don't know. I see the three coach thing, right? One guy works on the D, one guy works on the forwards and the head coach manages both. But the other guy, I'm not real sure what he's doing. I'd like to come up with something really creative for you, Greg. I just think he's, when you look back behind the bench, by the way, it looks like a bus stop. There's about three trainers for coaches like crowded back there. All right, as soon as stick with Instagram here, putting you on the spot here a little bit, but it's somewhat team related. What's this is from Jordan. What's the funniest or craziest Christmas holiday story you ever experienced? Now, I'm thinking maybe it was a team experience, a teen gift. Maybe it's world junior related through travels and whatnot. I don't know. I don't know that I have one, you know what I always like though was the last practice before the Christmas break. We'd always have a Christmas party. And so you'd come to lock a room the trainers would make a Christmas tree on an upside down hockey sticks and put some lights around it or whatever they had. Oh, nice. Yeah. And you'd have these gag gifts. So the guys were just sitting around. We'd bring lunch in and just sit there and you'd open these gag gifts up and the guy, you know, for me, I got one year, I got a little doctor's kit. And the doctors had to be explained was because I have no patience. You know, if a guy had a rather large cranium, somebody would take the puck bucket and tape it in the road colors tape and put his number on the back, like that was his road helmet. So I just always loved that sort of stuff. I just thought it was kind of funny and well not kind of funny. It is funny and it is fun. Everybody would sit around and just kind of laugh. And so that's kind of for the team, my favorite stuff that happened. All right, to app ray and Drake's Twitter from Sean esri. This one is for you, right? It's a hypothetical. So you're in a charity game, okay? You get to pick two forwards two defensemen and a goalie to start the game with. What former teammates are you picking to have the most fun with? Maybe not the most talented, but the most fun to play with. And then he's got a follow-up. So I've got a goalie. Yeah. Oh, that would be heels. I mean, first of all, we would lose because Glenn Haley wouldn't stop a shot. Yeah. He'd be like, without puck? Defenseman, just going to go through the teams. If I wanted to have a competitive team, I'd pick Brian leach. Because he was, he was among the very best that I ever got a chance to play with. Only played with them for little. No, I think I would pick rob Blake. Rob Blake would be would be my other guy. Front Luke robitaille, for sure. Right. I have played in a fantasy camp with Luke. He never passed to me. He said, I looked over, I saw you there, and I figured I was the best option. He never cost him. So he would be, he would be the guy. And Andrew brunette, for sure. Oh, nice. Okay, there's a follow-up follow-up from Sean. Who is the most talented player you ever played with? Alex kovalev. What's in every sense? Just high level skill. Yeah. Amazing skill so strong, so creative, like one time we were playing and, you know, Alex sometimes would get, I think he'd forget to shoot. And so we're playing on a line. Me him and Luke robitaille and Luke says to him, Al, you've already beat that same defenseman three times. You could shoot at that. It was like it was a game to him. He was so good. So good. Hey, it's ray Ferraro. Here to let small business owners and entrepreneurs know about something pretty cool. My friends at north beach agency have teamed up with their digital partners craft growth to offer a free website and social audit to track small businesses.

This one also from Twitter at water wheel 96. So it says when I listen to the podcast and when I heard ray talking about Reese, I wondered about how his parenting style relating to sports has changed from his older boys, Matt and Landon to his younger boys Reese and Riley. And the lessons that you learned along the way. I would say there might be there is nothing more powerful whether it's sports or anything of watching your children do what they do. Like if you see their love for it, you just want it for them so badly. I don't want it for me. I've already had my day. I want it for them so badly. I see their love for it. And I just want to support it. As far as it's changing, incredibly, I wish I would have had the experience and age

Razorfist Dissects the State of Arizona Elections
"Arizona ever going to be a normal political state? The future of elections in your state rays of his tell me about it. Oh God, at this point, I call it the absolute state of Arizona. But no, I actually, the fact that even got to the point where it's an actual court case. Yeah. Frankly is already exceeding my expectations. I expected it to be thrown out by some activist judge. The fact that they're even hearing it. Now granted, they did throw out the signature match provision or that portion of the lawsuit for absolutely absurd reasons. I mean, just over latches, essentially. This is the catch 22 that they get you in. If you file your lawsuit too far ahead of time, will the election hasn't taken place yet, you have no standing. If you file it after the fact, oh, well, there was too much of a delay, so that's latches. So we have to throw it out on that basis. So your damned if you do, if you don't, Trump ran into that problem in 2020. After that election, incidentally, then we're throwing things out based on latches and standing. Same old thing, right? But we are clearly seeing that there is some meat on the bone here. And every single day that this is actually out in public is definitely not a good day. Of course, they have the local rag, the Arizona republic. Which at this point made him as well rename itself, the people's republic. They're downplaying every documented instance of electoral fraud. We were all assured does not exist at Mach speed. I mean, these guys are like the Iraqi information minister at this point, in day one of the trial that the republic assured us all would not be granted in the first place, we learned that Maricopa County hired a third party entity called run back. Right. To count ballots off site in an explicit violation of Arizona election law.

"That means you're looking at 30 plus starts from your backup. What are you getting out of that? I mean, that's a question mark in Minnesota. Yeah. No question. All right. But let me just stop on that. Really forgot to St. Louis Nashville Winnipeg. You know, they're just going to, you know, I guess Dallas is in there too. They're going to kind of slug it out for that next little spot in the division because St. Louis is always going to be pretty good team. They're big, they can score their defense, maybe not what it used to be. Nashville is a good team. They're a good team. I mean, I don't know, but can you see sorrows have that year again? Everybody's got question marks there. Every team is rather, every team's got a question, Mark. What's Winnipeg? I don't know. I have no idea what Winnipeg. So that'll be the top two teams for me or Colorado and Minnesota. The central is as complicated as any division, right? I mean, we just chewed on the metropolitan for similar reasons. But, you know, if you exclude Colorado, I mean, it is a crapshoot from top to bottom there. We did the season preview show on TSN on Monday night. And most of the fellow analysts felt pretty strongly on the changes made with the Calgary flames. And it seems to be a one, two kind of flop there. Is it going to be Edmonton? Is it going to be Calgary that ultimately wins the Pacific division? And I've got time for both arguments. I need to see it from Calgary. I mean, it's obvious. It starts with Jacob markstrom. Their defense looks good, but changes up front are we absolutely certain it's going to pay off. Don't know that. Edmonton went pretty deep last year. Jack Campbell, the answer and goal in Edmonton. But you really shouldn't look beyond the likes of Los Angeles, right? Or Vegas has been in turmoil for a couple of seasons. So I stayed away from the Vegas golden knights, but again, for all the right positive competitive reasons, this division is as compelling as just about any other division. Yeah, I'll start with LA because I think they're going to be a pain. And I think they're entering into a phase where they're going to be really good for a number of years. That blue line of theirs. They got so many defensemen. They're going to have to figure out what to do with them all. And they've got about 5 right handed D so when the time comes, rob Blake is going to have some assets that are going to be coveted around the NHL. So right when you think their defense is deep, Brandt Clark, a 19 year old, their first rounder a couple of years ago makes a team. Like just jams another body in there. Another right handed shot. They get Sean walker back from ACL surgery. They get douty back from his wrist surgery. They already have an excellent defense of club. They add Kevin fiala to the forward group that can always use a pop of flash and quick offense.

"19 teams I look at in this conference and somebody's missing, right? Somebody's not making it and it's going to be a hard mess for either the foreign in the Atlantic and the 5 in the metro. And those younger teams, I think, are still New Jersey, Columbus, the buffalo Detroit's ottawas. I think they're just one year away from really throwing a monkey wrench into all of it. Okay, so then just by deducing everything that you've analyzed here, then pretty obviously you have to run over Carolina in the Eastern Conference final. Of course not. I just think they're going to win the division. Okay. Do think I really do think that I do think Toronto or Tampa is going to win that is going to be one of those spots. I do. I don't know why that there's all this negativity that floats around Toronto because I can't win out of the first round, which are rightly so they should wear it. But if they're if they're healthy, like why don't you like their team? Maybe they're defense, like maybe their defense I wonder at 38 can Mark Giordano hang on for a full year and Jake muzzin had back issues. That's never a good thing. Like those two guys are critical to the leafs success. They're critical and they're old. And you get hurt when you get old. So they need that to happen. I do think that I think Pittsburgh's got a chance to go really deep. I really do. I like their team. I don't know, I just have a feeling that malkin is going to have a little bit of a charge to him, even though he looked slow last year once coming back from his ACL surgery. And that quite frankly is pretty common. But they're good. The penguins are good. They're good. We're guessing if I'm guessing at this point, but I don't think Toronto and Carolina will get, I don't think both of them get to the conference final. Okay. Well, do you want to wait and let's go through the west division? And then we'll do both sets of conference finalists and then ultimately the Stanley Cup. All right. Got it. So let's shift over. I mean, the central is like a box of chocolates, man.

And you my friend have announced on Twitter that after 14 glorious years at TSN for personal for family reasons, you're moving on. I thought Drake's that I was going to be able to do all of my TSN stuff that I did, which is the 26 leaf games plus the world junior tournament plus the, we call them the one off shows, right? Like the free agent frenzy and trade center and all that stuff. Plus my ESPN gig. And on paper it looked fine. The problem became the travel was, I just couldn't do it anymore. I just couldn't do it. And so by not, this is basically what it came down to by not doing the TSN portion of things for me. I'll gain about 80 days at home between the beginning of October and April. And to me, I just can't do it anymore. It's funny, I don't feel any relief. You know, I thought that once I carved that out of my schedule, I'd kind of go, oh, this is great. I don't feel that relief yet. But I know when I'm not traveling, it'll be much better for my family. Selfishly, it'll be better for me because I'll be able to be there for the kids, more and now with kami working full time. It's like, man, it was a merry go round in there.

"If you live at a higher altitude let's say denver or kito ecuador you'll have more radiation exposure than someone who lives at sea level likewise flying in airplanes will increase your radiation exposure due to cosmic rays. Your level of exposure will primarily. Depend on how much you fly. And at what altitude you fly for the most part cosmic rays pose. No real health read all life. Forms throughout the history of life have been exposed to cosmic rays and we evolved for our dna repair low level radiation damage. One thing that can't be damaged by cosmic. Rays is computers. If a particle hits the right part of a processor or memory chip it can flip a bit. Causing an error in two thousand and three there was an election in belgium that was conducted electronically the results were more than the number of votes cast in an audit checking. The paper ballots also cast found that the air perfectly corresponded to a single bit in a single computer which could only have been caused by stray cosmic ray particle this is why computers on spacecraft have to have so much redundancy the space shuttle's head to have triple redundancy for exactly this reason the issue of cosmic rays is also a huge consideration for long term spaceflight the only time humans have ever been outside of earth's magnetic field was during the apollo missions and that was only briefly the issue of cosmic rays is a considerable one that needs to be considered for any mission to mars. One proposal would be to surrounded ship with water. Which would stop most of the cosmic rays. The problem is that water is heavy and either we would need to get it from the moon or we need to get it from earth. There's one thing one big thing. I haven't yet mentioned. Where do cosmic rays come from. Sure they come from space but where in space. Exactly the truth is no one really knows. You can't just detect. The direction of particle is coming from. Because they're so easily influenced by magnetic or gravitational fields not just the gravity and magnetism of earth but also that of the sun or even possibly the galactic centre the particles which are flying around space may come from other stars the center of our galaxy or even other galaxies wants a particle is jettisoned. You can basically travel forever until it runs into something. The smallest change in it's trajectory will render its origin impossible to determine. They're actually many theories about where they come from. But it's very difficult to actually prove anything. Cosmic rays are all around us all the time and always have been.

"Thousand twenty one winner of the best mattress in canada from lance ray What is the point of no move clauses if they can be waived by players. Isn't there a better way for players to have enough control like once they reach a certain age of years of nhl service. They get an opportunity to name three teams annually that they cannot be moved to something like that. I mean they do do that right. Maybe not under the context of the no move clause more in a modified note trade clause. But let's just say that it gives players more control but it does leave flexibility for the team to maximize the value of their assets. Your thoughts on the no move no-trade because they have kinda. It is protection for the player. But if i'm the general manager and ray ferraro is a no move plaza. And i come to ray and i say hey i'd like to move you. You're not what you want. Were your role is going to diminish all of that. Isn't that basically telling you that you're not really welcome anymore. So maybe there's a better opportunity elsewhere. It is and if i really like it there. I can tell him to beat it now. That's the whole point of having the no move. Don't negotiate the men. I can't believe general managers got so free with these no move clauses. It's their own fault. Yeah like negotiate in a ten team trade. The reason you like when lance says you know they can name three teams in or something like that gives lots of flexibility. That's the point when you earn this. No move clause or the team wants to give you one. You don't want the team to have any flexibility. The whole point is. I want to stay here. Yeah so if they get to a point you go and ask them. You don't have to say yes and the gm can say. Oh i'm gonna make your life miserable really how you going to do that. You're paying me millions of dollars now. Now it's tough like that. I just sorry. I just this stokes me a bit because i think this is one hundred percent on the general managers. Don't give them out. And if you lose a player that you have to give no trade to for eight years unless it's connor mcdavid. What are you doing that for right. Don't go get another player in some. Gm's do take that hardline position. I would say the majority obviously do not. But some do thanks for that lance from paul. Ray you played in the days of the single official and the role of the enforcers so based on lack of consistent officiating in the to rep system and multiple player injuries from second fractions headshots and limited to no accountability.

Hamilton morgan riley shea weber. We're doing what fox is doing our if they were at there'd be nonstop talk about them winning the norris but i i was going to bring this up earlier and headlines but i feel like adam fox has to be a prime norris trophy contender. Right now is not you have to be. I don't know why he wouldn't be. I mean he certainly going to be on my ballot. I do think there's some truth to luke's point though that There is a momentum to two players winning a trophy because you. It shouldn't matter because it's just about this season but there there needs to be a little awareness and it's hard for everybody to be aware of every player because everybody's criteria is a little different But i in my mind. Adam fox is having a a norris caliber season. yeah. I don't know that he's the norris winter but i i do believe he will get plenty of consideration gooey thinking victor hedman john carlson. Yup yup yet. You know who doesn't have enough but romeo sees impact knowing one last year but for sharing now nashville's game when he was out of the lineup as opposed to win he's in it.

I don't know why it shouldn't bother me. I mean i'm no. I'm not good enough. That it should bother me. But i think i do think they're in a match like james and my vision is the jerry was like a nap and he just wouldn't go away so you're talking about the random noise so i do this with my buddies and they finally picked up on it right so normally. I'm the guy that hits first off t. Just because i'm the best call from the group i'm done. That's and that's not saying a whole lot. But so on the rare occasion. Where i don't have honors whoever hits i just as they're in their backswing all rep velcro on my glove and that's brutal. It is brutal but if that happened to you so if somebody did that your backswing you'd be sour because you would notice it like that's that yes those noises that would get to you like i did it ten times last season ray and nobody figured it out. They never picked up on it so that quality the people that i play golf so i would say anything but you would probably you notice that i knew. Oh you know like i. That would be a walk off the tee box to my bag. Don't like there's no conversation there you would know. See jerry would would get to me. Because he's he's a good golfer but lighthearted he's out there he's having fun and if i'm not playing well i'm not having as much fun and that would probably get to me. How he's boston it. Up the middle did do just love and life in here. I am like grinding it out like i'm working in salt mines. So then that vision connects pretty good with old shaking hands and leaving the court on he. By that point he had worked his way into osa ear so far they couldn't get away fast enough. No kidding thanks. Jerry for joining.

"Of a cage. I gotta get you there notices. So they're doing it now if you watch when they come out for the warm up these girls on on these teams are coming out and you're getting to see the faces. These young girls and boys can see. Oh that's what nahla spooner looks like. That's what and that's something. That i think is a small thing that will help the cages the optics of cages. I had this conversation to the the cages. Make it look like minor midget hockey. It just dots. But i gain made great point. She was well one. We don't have dental plans as a professional league Good point and i don't. I don't think women wanna be walking around with missing teeth in scratched up scarred faces so there's a lot of a lot of value to that too but there's just that was just my mind sort of thinking how it just. I think we gotta get to know them better. The there's no question that's as the key to any interest is hot people into the stories of the players. I agree on their. Tv's now one of the most bear performances anyone can make and you did it. Do it is to stand up to be a stand up comic. I'm fascinated by the courage. It takes to stand out there and goal gets me. There's nothing you're not. You're not the old gha comic gallagher with the watermelon smashing it all over the placement. How how terrifying is it to go out there to perform your set. Well there's two parts of that now not terrifying. 'cause i'm immune to it but at the beginning like the first night i come writing another book right now. I should probably write books brennan on smart enough but i'm writing book about in one of the things i'm working on now. Is that chapter on my first time. I can't even explain how terrifying it is terrifying like a doctor performing open heart surgery. It's not terrifying like a breakaway. You know on dominik hasek to win the gold medal. It's different terrifying that. I can't explain because there's a huge of berson factor that is involved. And i can't describe why it was the toughest thing i ever did. And then you know as you said men. That was years of like i've been on stage where i did. I did a gig once. I got phone i just did last comic standing and i was on top of the world might feed jumped so much. So these agents i'm ucla. And i get this first gig in. It's like a money. I've never heard in. I was a teacher. And i'm getting this. Because this is the gig on my. That's what pace like thousands of dollars like not nothing more on people thinking it's crazy but you know i'm doing gigs. For one hundred fifty bucks to that point. So they fly me to the bahamas. I'm like oh my god this unbelievable so i get to the bahamas resort in. It's an island. I am there for one night. And i get. It's a marlin fishing tournament now. I've never seen a boat like i'd seen. This was fifty yachts lined up in the harbor. These were thirty forty million dollar votes and there was fifty two hundred and the crowd was a bunch of old men.

"Like imagine being a girl like my daughter who's dream place hockey and then you're like what's the endgame. Here will the end game. I started asking questions. Was you know you can make seven grand a year. If you're the best player in the world so i think at the time someone like like muddy fully any spooner. Neal's girls were making maybe seven thousand a year so that is like an east coast. League player would play remake more than the whole team salary. And i thought you know it was it was like yeah maybe i can lend my voice to this. Also iran and my daughter came up to one day with the with the lpga prize money and the pj prize money instead. That y is so different so you know you change your you kind of think differently. We probably should have this way more as guys long time ago but at least we're starting the conversation so i'm trying to whatever fit helps it helps and you guys are all doing the same. We're all trying to elevate the women's sports world and it should win all the best part about it. Is you know my wife was involved. cami twenty years ago. That's right. yeah yeah and there was no social media. So they're please for just a little support got dusted aside and nobody could pick it up. Now there's a momentum that will not be stopped like it. Yeah it's taking longer maybe than everybody would like. But it's not gonna stop and that's not it is the best part but you're right the fact that it didn't happen when camby was playing in cassie in you know any of those girls it you know there was the big argument. I get if i tweet something because you still get these guys going well watching and there's so i'm like that's not what we're talking about here. It was watching and they posted a clip posted the other day. The double women's volleyball game got more views on the network than the cubs reds game. So that excuse. I just don't think should exist anymore. And if it might might take two things and it's an interesting conversation of never had is gambling. What changes the men's. I don't know you know. Let's not hide the fact that the sports gambling industry is massive. My watching football sunday. If i don't have a fantasy pool i don't know if i am yeah. I don't know how that plays into it. It shouldn't. There's gotta be something about that. The gambling industry that we watch men's so much more. There's got to be. And i think you've got to tell the stories you know i knew nothing about cami. I mean i know everything about sid crosby. What used to shoot pucks on dryer. I think we need to tell their stories off the ice. And it's funny. Because i said to jane at that game. I said you know an and they're doing it now. I don't think it's because of me. But i'm glad they're doing it. I think the girls should girls and women. They should come out and not have their helmets on.

"Yeah you're probably played for bonuses at that level to right at that time bonuses. Were a big deal right now. Guys would have them. Yeah so there was you know i touched out. Are you sure did and then guys would be like. Yeah he needs a bonus in the funniest story. I heard about about that recently. Was these guys are playing in croatia right now. Right you ever hear this story and you can bet on their games so these guys are making nothing. So they're going in right and this is from a guy that played there. This is a valid a valid store. They're going in to the betting shops in croatia. Or wherever they're betting they'll score the first goal so when they get on the ice they're going to be opposing team. Guys listen i on and i'll you know there's always deals wheels because like they're just the you take you. Can i have that goal. Because i had a bet on myself scoring that goal tonight. Yeah yeah that's yours man. Go ahead. I don't know i don't know how true it is but that's the story i i like it. Give them a little actions. Sure go down and myself. Why not absolutely look. We should mention you're wearing the pow. Hp hoodie your big supporter. Good for you. Yeah it's kinda came from. I you know i. I didn't event with jayna hefford years ago. And i befriended jana and obviously jana hall of famer and and well-deserved and then i you know you have daughters in you. Don't i didn't think much of anything but i did. A little stint helium. I healy and i are on the bench for this. All star game at the time was the saami let me interrupt you. There's no way you made as much noise as healy chance. He'll be so helium. My brother played together at western michigan. That's how i knew. He'll he sign new healy prior. And i'll tell you. I love heels but healing. I went to one game in my brothers career at joe louis arena was the semi finals. It was michigan state. Had oh god played in the nhl. For years winnipeg played for winnipeg anyway. Had this phenomenal. Boli gino paul. Gino cavalieri was on bowling green creek. Simpson was involved with prime michigan state. At this point what. I go to one game. And healy stops sixty five shots. And that's not exaggerated and they beat bowling green In double overtime and he bowling green went on to win it anyway. But i always remember that about. He goes yeah. I think the scouts came to watch the other goalie. And i. I don't know he would know the store a butchering story. But every healy and i are on the bench. And i'm literally standing in the dressing room after like going like this is like mattie felipe who land like the best female player in the world Jana had retired. Mike still feel right that they're crowded into a room that in a small dungy arena. They're carrying your own equipment and nfl..

"Or it's funny because i was a walk on had no business. Being there played high school hockey. That was the highest level playing intramurals. A york university and i was going insane effects from education. I'm gonna walk on so i really did. Train guys didn't train back then probably at any level but in the at the time i was just training every day so i got to trial to. No one was in shape but me. So i made the team and i remember. He put me on the first line. And i remember standing there for national anthem. Going no mega. My played four or five. Four years. The london knights the right way or my left winger at the time he played you know tier two bunch of records and points. And i'm standing there going. What am i doing here so anyway. It was against p. I we got four points. I got four points. We won four three. i scored. it was three all i. It was like it was like a movie to me but to anyone else it was nothing and then i remember sitting on the four finding and game twelve going. How did i get here so fast. I was just i was. I remember walker around campus going. I can't believe i just did that. And then i never got close to it again So one game. The worst part is i. I call up the coach to get the tape which was vhs. And i wanted to watch it. I was kinda like man what happened and he goes. Yeah so he sends me. The tape am all excited my well. At least i have this tape for my kids and grandkids like you know in the basketball coach had taped over it. So i'm watching the watching the basketball practice. What the hell is this is my point game so i never ever got it. So it's it's me off. But i don't have it in my buddies that ex. I'm still close with a couple of them in. You know these are guy. One guy played the h. l. after and they cheered me all the time like yet one game man like it was but it was for me. It was a highlight. That was it. nope we just. We just talked about guy scoring one hundred and eight goals in the. Whm would reminded me that. We're talking about my four point night with no two of this guy tap the ref ago i got that right i was i don not an awesome. We all did that. He that on the way you bet. Yeah story we were playing acadia and it katya was. I was fourth line. I never got ice acadia. They'd like that's so drake bathroom. Father was was nor mathison and he was. You know i mean again. I'm not not at your level rate. But he was phenomenal. Hockey player went on and played after that day. This team they won twelve one in the final. Against u of t. That's how good they were so long. They were beating teams out east six nothing twelve. Nothing seven one. Nine one and i i. I got a goal but it wasn't my goal. We this guy. Peter lee who was a really good player in uh i said peter. I don't think i touched that. And the ref gave to meet. He goes just take it. Just keep it. I'm like you know what big i will i got. I got no points in nine games. I'm just going to keep it. So i really think one of the goals wasn't even mind to be honest. Luc robitaille said video review robbed him of five goals a year. Because you could always say there's puck mark on my stick. It had to hit me for sure adds great..

"Is no code. I've never been handed a copy of the code. I don't know what it is and you play in a long time by the way with some tough dudes. Yes you feel the code like there's a sense of what it is but there is no code there are no. There is no handbook and so the people that are arguing about it online and make lots of noise about it. They know even less about it than i do because they weren't there and they've never been there now. I understand the emotionality of the response. Ettler hit was bad and he got suspended and toronto's not happy because they lose zach hyman and their their guy is hurt so they're looking for retribution. If if the league doesn't want that to happen. The only way i can think it can happen is to make the suspension in her directly involved with the team that that incident happens. So of alexander gets two games or four games in a normal season. He would edward got two games. The next two games have been against somebody else at toronto doesn't get any any satisfaction from that the cannot slough would lose adler four games against chicago and pittsburgh or whoever it was if it's against toronto. Maybe that matters a little more. Because i cannot be more clear on this what i think. The code is what A player today thinks the code is a player on another team of today. Thinks the code is is all different. Yeah it's different because there is no written down of this has to happen. Do you think you should have skated away. Do you think alexander should have just said look. I'm not fighting. you don't need to fight you. i. I served my two game suspension buzz Yes but it's easy to say. Because i'm sitting here on my coach when you're in that moment you feel this unwritten code like you feel it again and so he probably felt well first of all he probably looked up and saw wayne simmons and went off for crying out not him. Yeah because simmons could really do a number on and to simmons credit. I think there was a point there where he kind of thought in the fight. I mean i could be wrong. But i thought in the fight simmons what that's enough and any stopped like he could've kept going and he did. He's clear he's fighting a guy that doesn't fight. I think ever felt. I have to take this fight. I i think it's wrong as i sit here as long retired blair but in the game. It's different it it just is. I wish i wish i could explain it. I wish i could explain it more clearly. But that's when you're in it. It's different than when you're viewing it from the perch which we do we. We all do it media in general. Of course the other thing that was a head scratcher me was the suggestion that okay well if there needs to be a fight than needs to be someone other than wayne simmons. It needs to be closer to alec sadler non fighter. Well i mean who does that. Is it like ilya mckay of like. Are we going to be happy. Just somebody some random. Toronto maple leaf fighting alexander in honor of of zakheim and that doesn't make any sense to me either. It doesn't and here's another reason why it doesn't because then people are going to look at wayne simmons and say. Why didn't you address this hunter percent and so what wayne supposed to go out and say while he's not really in my weight class and these four guy like it doesn't work like that it's.

"Poll question right goodwin. It was a good one. It's a bit click bait but that's fine. We need that kind of what we do on occasion here with random social media channels. We asked on social media. Who you were taking in a seven game playoff series between the edmonson wanders and the toronto maple leafs of course building off a question that we got on ask ray dregs anything last week. What do you think the results were. no neutrality. To it you're either a leaf guy or girl or a oiler guy or girl Slightly slightly ahead toronto. But rate down party lines. Yeah and look. The poll is going to continue here. But well into i think around five thousand voters wright fifty eight percent say the toronto maple leafs would win a seven game series head to head with the owners so obviously that leaves forty two percent in favor of the oil. So thank you to canadian club for our poll question of the week. Now dive into another episode of rain rigs brought you by infiniti. We've got canadian comedian. Jerry di coming up on the podcast. This guy is a piece of work. He's a funny dude and multifaceted to write you. And i have how many jobs i don't know i mean we do lots of things you know him though not like him. He's all over the place over and game show host and comic and tv show. He's a funny dude. He's funny do well. We can't play golf and ontario. Which obviously we'll talk to jerry about. But that's probably why he has time on a saturday morning to spend a half hour. Forty minutes with the likes of you. And i will also check in with quebec the latest from the gambling world. Cool that dot. Co check them out headlines. This week has always presented by the tim hortons. Nhl hockey challenge. It's in the tim hortons. Apres we both have it. You pick three players nightly for your shot at winning. Tim's reward points and i'm i'm infatuated by this even though sometimes i forget i do i do. I feel like if i wouldn't forget that i'd be way of headed away ahead of you in the game because shockingly to me prior to episode twenty. I pull out the history. And the tim hortons app just before i submit. Tonight's picks three picks. And i see that i've got one hundred points one hundred points. I got a fifty banger. The other day two guys score two of my three scored and that earn me. Fifteen fifty points automatically while what bothers me that that whole thing is i've got one hundred points to it bothers me. I mean how you know. There's a feature where you can use the scots pick to help you. Maybe i should be using it. How can i be tied with you. This is it's very disappointing. I know but it's it's the spirit of compete again in a world like in season one we were going to have. We had the big bet with with with the contest. Right which of course which of course you never paid up on. Well exactly how am i going to do that. I guess they say did you. Could you guys are too picky. You'd have to be some like freshwater bass or something like that or something along the y you know i just i just wanna slab of meat us..
