"All Right Folks. Thank you and welcome back to the draws cast. I'm very excited to be with you again. I hope that you've been continuing to listen to the draws cast. We have some great interviews that we've downloaded over the last couple of weeks and have another great interview Here today with me He is the GM at the Briar Woods Country Club and a city just outside of Buffalo New York called Hamburg and his name is Spencer. Murray and Spencer and I know each other through some work that we've done together through the National Restaurant Association and we've been working on getting Spencer on the show for quite some time so Spencer Murray. Welcome to the Dr Cast. Hey thanks for having me Jeff. It's good to finally make this happened with you. I'm looking forward to to get into it with you yet. It's going to be great A previous podcast. I had a gentleman by the name of Aaron. Primo on and I called him a Whiz Kid. Because he's done quite a bit. In his years that he's been a Professional Anaconda put you into that group Not so much because your age because frankly I don't know how much or how old you are. You don't need to tell me that but I think that you've done a lot for the number of years that you've been making a living for yourself. So that's another reason why I wanted to have yon of the draws cast so So before we get your professional cry like to kind of set it up and find out a little bit of background about the people that are interview so Where did you grow up. What city specific did you grow up in? Sure so starting I'll tell you I'm thirty one so that we can get that out. Okay well then. You can be a whiz kid concerning. Yeah Yeah for me. That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations

A Look At The Latest Movies In Theaters

"Movies tonight's premiere a lot of really interesting movies premiering tonight including the latest in the terminator series in the first movie that James Cameron's been involved in in a bit joining us now to talk about terminator dark fate and a few others is sorry bunch Washington post center stage contributor and movie critic joining us here in the here who have program said bunch good to talk to you about friends here in Cleveland how are I'm great Bob I'm great it is it is kind of a weird weekend at the at the movies you've got you've got a couple of pseudo award hi quite releases coming out this weekend you've got motherless Brooklyn right which is the ad Norton new are about life in New York City in the in you know thanks Vera it it is that the the problem with this movie is that it is the features as Norton doing that very ed Norton the actor leaf thing you know if you've seen the trailer a hundred times and I have a you know that this is you know that this is going to be which he you know kind of should the shuddering map and then you also have which is the story of Harriet Tubman I let me see if I may so he let me ask you a bit more about motherless Brooklyn because I am an Edward Norton fan and I'm I mean going going back to the illusionist I mean it I mean virtually all of the twenty fifth hour is that the kind of thing you're talking about when you see a typical Edward Norton type of it is a very it's a very after the manner performance yeah he's doing he's doing if he played a character who has as a mental disorder if they it's kind of a rain man white hi situation and you know it it it depends on how much patience you have for that like I it again my my my big complaint here is that the movie is two and a half hours long and the this is the an ad that somebody with limited patient it's hard to do that and so and there's also Herriot which unfortunately I I miss that my my child had the flu so I was not able to get the the the press screening of that but I'm I'm pretty interested in it in part because it makes Hardman look like a walking talking poster for the the the second amendment as she's you know she she has the arm up there she can head back south and and free the slaves I I I I am looking for that I have not actually seen it's like yeah I can't say one way or the other if it is they recommend or not recommend other terminator dark fate is is the big movie out this week of opening wide on you know four thousand three and is the first James Cameron involves terminator then in the the second one then he turned right back yeah and it is also a direct sequel to teach here this is one thing that people are fans if if there are fans out there who have obsessively watched all of the terminator movies you know terminator three terminator salvation terminator Genisys that that there are Connor chronicle this kind of gets all of that the the the with all of that out of existence and it's just the straight world two terminator two which that's great news that's great news because I I'm one of those who skipped all of those sorry I I I I don't know why the genesis and the others did not grab me because I was a huge terminator fan of the first two and I missed all the rest so I kind of thought I can't go see this I will have missed so much so you're saying that matter does not matter if you if you've seen terminator wanted terminator two you're all caught up I think I think most people have just seen terminator one in terminator three honestly I I have a soft spot for I thought it was interesting and there's something kind of different with the with the with the franchise the terminator dark fate starters there were it features the return of Linda Hamilton affair Connor she is back in trying to save a a young girl who lived in Mexico for being a what being wiped out by the terminator that is kind of a mix of the the terminators from the first two movies that if the if gotta act endoskeleton you know the metal and a skeleton with the metal liquid liquid metal poly alloy him make a kind of separate itself the can in separate itself into two sermon acres wow it's not just one and can I come in gonna coming hello and thank you and also a defining this girl is at a argument human I play by mackenzie Davis who who is the is the interesting actress she was on the halt and catch fire the prestige internet TV are you know prestige SL on AMC about the the ride the use a mac whatever Bubba around the figure out so the bunch though about terminator dark fate is is at his age he doesn't look like in cannot be the terminator of the past what role does Arnold play in his terminator by a persona in this thing sure well I I I don't want to spoil too much but but Arnold is also back he he will be back he is back and he is playing a terminator that has that came back from from the past and have kind of that'll that'll down almost the he has he has a family and I I'm not joking not a joke you have a family and his family is a family of five plus I mean I I get was it too much okay bye I got too much it is it is interesting you know there's there's there's a whole gender studies dissertation the written about the evolution of the terminator through through the years you know the in the four and like the role of masculinity in society or something as in the first movie right he's just as big Bob naked that you'd write me right goes around killing people and you know he is very of what product any you know and then in the second movie he had you have to learn to feel any you know he he gave he did he get them humor and you get them on personality and then in this movie he is again almost domesticated and it's very strange to her watch he that play out on screen it's not bad exactly if it's just strange I don't know I mean but the problem with this movie is that it totally fine but nothing more than that and if you if you want to revisit this world and you want to do it with James Cameron I think you need something a little more than fine but I also don't know that there's there's that much more you can do with the terminator movies right if it's a movie about you know sending a robot back into the past to kill somebody who is important to humanity future and you can only do that so many times with the before before the well really run right right well yeah I I just I think it I I think you could I I I I can't I can't give us a strong recommend in the sense that I don't think it's a much the gotta you gotta get out there you're gonna be wowed by it but it's it's okay it's fine you won't hate it if if mediocre we're not gonna see Arnold on skis jumping over cage shark though you're here you're telling me it's it's it's a less okay I feel like that sounds may have jumped the shark when you told me there's a terminator family I don't know how that's going to play out they said the only ask you one other question also opening this weekend I'm AT and if you've seen it or not but I'm interested just because of the heavy weights involved deniro has taken on a break from bashing Donald Trump and decided to make a movie here with Pacino and with the ray Romano as well it's the Irishman the Jimmy Hoffa another Jimmy Hoffa a vehicle here any thoughts on that one well I actually see that this morning there's a press screening the hot so I I do not have any thought Jeff yeah I I I don't be is it actually out in theaters now is that I had seen the ingleses opens today now so that yeah yeah yes so it is it okay after this is a necklace release it is going to be playing limited in a few theaters around the country it is a and I I just looked it up it is playing in DC so I I see it in a couple hours I will let you get back and let everybody know how good it is next week I yeah but it is it is out in a limited run in theaters right now mostly landmark they think and then it's going to be on Netflix on I think the fifteenth but let me I I will I will I I saw I saw the promotion for the movie yesterday on I don't know if it was the today show for what it was but but I did see here in interview no one today but anyway I did see an interview with the three of them and you know anytime you see anytime you see deniro and Pacino get together on screen which they have done numerous times it's it's huge it's you know either the chemistry is always perfect and and and it's always it the question is about the story which you'll find out later this morning but I'm also curious to see whether or not Robert de Niro's brand has been damaged or diminished at all because of his you know is this political career now seems to be as important to him is that his acting career and some people love his you know outside interests bashing Donald Trump and some people really resent it'll be interesting to see how audiences respond yeah so it it's on that puts on November twenty seventh in theaters now it in a few theaters now Hampel theaters now and then they'll be on Netflix starting November twenty seventh you know it's interesting because I I it'll be it'll be hard to judge exactly what what the response to this movie is because Netflix doesn't release any actual data you know they they don't release box office data they don't release of the data who actually watch it the movie and how much of it so it's hard it's hard to say if audiences will you know will stay away from that new models sorry is this a new model big you're right I mean it's Netflix produced and I think I saw on exposures today it's a hundred sixty million dollar budget so it's a massive budget movie if I saw that correctly in its Netflix and they are going to put it on Netflix but it's going to have a limited run in theaters is that a new model I don't I don't recall that being a very common thing if it's Netflix for them to put it in the mix we asked for a while they do it they do it for the they do it for you know doctors even type movie the the awards contenders because in order to qualify for the Oscars you have to have a theatrical run in in at least New York and Los Angeles or you know one week or two weeks it if if the thing so they they expand that a little bit and do you know Chicago the others but it is it is not a it is not the standard necklace really followed not the first time they've done that they did that last year for Roma and some of their other movies ballad about their Scruggs and and a couple others and they've they've done it a couple times this year but it is it's very it's very strange because the because of the way they work the major theater chains that want to work with them they have to do the right in the route well I'll tell you what Sonny it's a really interesting mix there's terminator if you're a fan of the series of special the first to go to that one if you can stand two and a half hours of jittery go see motherless Brooklyn and we'll find out next week what you thought of the Irishman sunny bunch Washington Post movie critic thank you so

"You can look at if you want to recruit, but looking into other sports disciplines that in my opinion, very very different different game. There are some exceptions. Of course, you know, Primoz. Rog Leitch is definitely a good example. He, you know, if you're if you're a top athletes, usually, you have talent, and you you have qualities as a sportsman has an athlete. I don't know. Exactly. The reason why he went why he quits ski jumping and started cycling, but. Have you seen the ski jumping accident knowing that? No, I have. No, no that one. It's it's horrific. Terrible. Okay. Well, I mean, you know, I think I think probably he he started cycling in a as a as a form of rehabilitation, and that's how he got into it. If you look at the guy from from education, I the Canadian guy woods, he was a runner until you know, very very, I mean, he started cycling in his twenty s same thing. So there are exceptions. But usually, usually it's it's an I mean, I think I think wrongly is really the exception because he doesn't come from. It's a totally different sport. It's very technical. I don't know a lot about ski jumping. But I would say, it's not an endurance sport. If it would have been, you know, the Nordic skiing would be different. But, but yeah, he's definitely the exception. But you know, he's he's he's really good at cycling, obviously, probably better than ski jumping. So, but yeah, I mean, looking at other cycling disciplines as definitely something that teams do. Other other sport disciplines, I think it's just pure computer incidents. Now, I'm going to combine a couple of questions together. Because a couple of people are asking about the tour of California, Catherine wanted to know your thoughts on why certain teams choose tour of California instead of going to the Jiro or writers. You did mention cigar just a moment ago. And then the other question was from Brian. It says being a California resident what is Johan impression of the Angan tour of California. Is there any advantage to racing here versus the Jiro other than the links of the racist? So they're kind of want your thoughts on tour of California, which is going on simultaneously with Jiro. Yeah. Well, first of all the teams don't choose to go either to California to Jiro all the proto teams, go to Jiro. That's they have to go. It's it's it's a condition to be in the world tour, and then some not all the world two teams. But some of them also choose to go to the tour of California. So whoever whichever team of the world doer has a team in the tour of California for sure has a theme in in the Jiro. And so it's a matter of okay. What what are the the objectives? You could you could argue that the tour of California is probably a better combination. If you have him Bishop into to the France, you it's not it's it's shorter. It's not as hard, and there's more time to recover between between the end of the tour of California and the to FRANZ than than the Jiro. So that's that's the factor. Why certain writers choose that to California's also for certain cyclist? Sts a restart after they have taken a break from the spring classics. It's a way to start again. So it's it's a number of factors that that come into the game..

"First off you have to. You have to recognize that you came up with us idea when they were developing the Harrier. Because they didn't want it always need to do a verdict takeoff, it takes more time and more fuel. But they also didn't wanna have to set it up to be a shot off a deck with a catapult that involves a lot of structural reinforcement that was just going to make the airplane heavier. So they came up with this. How do you make a short runway longer without physically making a longer? The answer was a ski jump ramp. So the harriers starts farther back on the aircraft carrier accelerates goes up that ramp and it's airborne. Yeah, no, that's it. But but in the process of going up, the ramp, you sacrifice airspeed okay, I don't do visit expand. You have to go up a hill. You're going to slow down. Not if I'm Ed in power response to celebrating. I'm not saying hang, I misspoke. You're right. I'm not saying you slowdown, but I'm saying you are not going as fast as you would have been going. Oh, okay. I'm saying, you're not accelerating as much. All right, the that, that for a given thrust, whether it's a catapult or whether it's the engines alone, whatever. All right, the airspeed that you will have a chief going off. The end of flat deck is going to be higher than the airspeed you will have achieved going off the end of skijump. Dick. All right. You're going to have less airspeed at that moment. All right. And I think. You're, you're mistakenly plugging in conventional aircraft into this equation and neither the Harrier nor the version of the f, thirty five that they're sending out on this aircraft carrier, the USS Queen Elizabeth are conventional aircraft. They have veteran thrust nozzles because their vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. So as he's accelerating up, he's not pointing at all that trusting straight back, some of its pointing down. So the when he gets at the end of that, he's climbing already. Now he may not be going as fast, but he's going fast enough to get airborne with lift from the wings and the vectored thrust automatically putting him into a climb, and it saves complexity on the aircraft. Carrier saves weight on the aircraft of which is a really big deal when it's coming into land. I mean, he ever look at an f. fourteen or an FAA teen when it hits the carrier deck. Those aircraft have to be built up. Their landing gear has to be built up so much heavier, because housing land, and you don't have to do that with these vertical takeoff and landing airplanes like the after five and Harrier. But just that ramp gets them airborne in a shorter distance than if they were going straight ahead. Right?.

"Power plants answer systems they even build sixty five ski jumps and hundreds of towns got their first airport thanks to the wpa now you would think that an agency that was doing all this work would be everybody's hero but that's not what happened mainly because of who was doing the work the trouble was everyone knew you couldn't get a do wpa job unless you were on relief and that meant destitute and nobody could believe that people on relief could really do for his classwork the pay scale didn't help either it was almost double the monthly relief payment but it was below prevailing wages so that kind of devalued the work too so what's your first association with the letters w p a i would bet it's we putter around or a new a new version that i learned when i was researching this book which is whistle piss and argue well there were a lot of these jokes running around in chicago they used to say that if you'd never got lost in the city if you remembered that the moss grew on the north side of the wpa workers shandra updike the wpa creating jobs and hope in the great depression well part of what fed these jokes was the wpa's insistence on organizing each project so as to create the highest possible number of jobs if it was a choice between using power equipment to excavate a hole or getting ten guys with shovels they go for the ten guys shovels it got the job done even if it was less efficient but at the same time it put food on the tables of a ten workers families but it kind of reinforce the idea that the wpa labor force wasn't doing real work then there was the question of what kind of projects the men were working on who knows the word boondoggle yes okay do you know the original meaning what it started out meaning was his small useful object made out of leather who knew right in one thousand nine hundred forty five just when the wpa was first being debated in congress a news report revealed that a different public jobs program was training workers to make boondoggles well overnight the meaning of the word changed from small useful object made out of leather to work project that just pretends to keep people busy and that's pretty much the meaning that tunnel on sent in fact you could look in the dictionary and you will not see much about small leather objects so here's the paradox most people absolutely loved what the wpa bill in their own communities but even if the work they'd seen was terrific they remain convinced that there was a lot of boondoggle and going on everywhere else wanted wpa official said i've been hunting all over the state for a bone duggal but everywhere i go i'm told us in the next county in the same way american saw their own friends and relatives working hard on wpa chops right in front of their eyes but a lot of them still clung to the belief that in the rest of the country wpa workers would just leaning on their shovels well the wpa construction projects were remarkable and they did account for about seventy five percent of all the jobs that were created but this branch of the program did not do much for women the jobs created for them almost all fell into a different category which was called service so here's a little time travel picture yourself in the mountains of kentucky in one thousand nine hundred thirty six look there's a woman on horseback picking her way up that creek bed which is the closest thing to a road in this part of the country the only clue to what she's doing here is her saddlebags which are bulging with fifty pounds of books in magazines so here's the explanation you're not just looking at a woman in a horse you're looking at the local branch of the wpa pack horse library at the peak of this program there were two hundred carriers like this women almost all women serving more than one hundred and fifty thousand people all through the kentucky mountains every day each carrier wrote a different twenty mile road hitting half a dozen mountain settlements picking up last week's book and dropping off a new badge well in a lot of ways the pack horse library was a one of a.

"We at usa lose it it it is difficult to recruit because we only have a few training sites there's no programs through college so other countries do have programs for winter olympic athletes in smaller sports and in the us the united states olympic committee basically takes over that role and they do a fantastic job with what they have but it's not government funded whereas other countries are government funded and what was your gateway i mean obviously you know you said you grew up you know very close to lake placid obviously if you're going to lose in this country that's where you want to be i mean so the gateway there was had been pretty easy but i mean what led you down that path i mean because there's a lot of winter sports right i mean i know i read something at one point you said you know the line was shorter for lose than it was for bobsleds that's kind of why you went that direction but what was your gateway into it man yes so i think growing up closely placid is special because you do have opportunities that you wouldn't have otherwise i mean i tried ski jumping as a kid which i'm glad i didn't go with jumping because a more of an anchor than a feather but having the olympic facilities close by is such an invented for young kids where you do get to try these obscure sports like bobsled ski jumping lose and to me luge was the alternate sledding hill i love sledding as a kid so at eight years old i that's that was the minimum age to be in the local program for bobsled and luge so at eight years old i started going to the bobsled and lose track and they'll fade home and bring in lake placid and you're right the bobsled line was longer the turnover was slower and you're only driving half the time but with luge if i ran from the bottom back to where i started i could get seven eight nine runs a night where.
