Moments later, he boarded a train where he appeared to mutter to himself while waving around that hammer. That man eventually attacked two people hitting them in their heads and police say each attack totally random. This was last Thursday that suspect has not been seen since.

This isn't St. Petersburg in 1917 or China under Mao or Cuba. Your piece answers that question. So what are we witnessing right now, Carrie? I call it a softer revolution. So it's having the same outcomes as those events that you mentioned, but we're doing it to our own selves. So nobody's storming Congress. They'll be storming The White House.

Tank Man Saves Lives

I remembered that earlier in the week we had provided some information to the Russian intelligence services that had permitted them to take down a terror plot in St. Petersburg. We'd provided that because it was the right thing to do. We'd provided that information also because I'm confident saved American lives. There's always thousands of Americans traveling in St. Petersburg, or at least before the war. There were. It's the kind of way we can work on counter terrorism operations, even with adversaries like Russia. We counted on them to provide us information. We gave it to them. They did the hard work on the ground and then it was really something. Maybe ten 15 minutes later, there's the press release with Vladimir Putin thanking Mike Pompeo personally and the CIA organizationally for having saved Russian lives.

"So you compound that with mr berg not living in the market not being visible as vinegars. It is hard. And so. I don't think to be fair to disarm. I don't think people really know is then it really understand who he isn't what he's about he's in new york wall street guy and that plays well with some people doesn't play well with others and maybe not a visible owner in the way as you said jeff bennett. Yeah it to me. you know. I've said for years that the more visible the owner is a fan. Wants to understand that the owner wants to win badly as they did in their passionate about the tape. Then it gives you that are starting barred. Doesn't give you in the stance. But he sure does he sure does what the performance of the team i mean. He's how great baseball people that make great decisions in we're competing with the yankees and the red sox regularly and and coming out ahead. So i mean he's done what he needs to do. They just i think in the market. He's not seen as a fan. He's not seen as a community guy. He's not seen as part of the neighborhood. All right bill. I think that's it for my questions anything else. You'd like to add before we wrap up. You know like i said. I've seen the impact of a new building. In a variety of places it can have a unique part a unique financial impact in a in a very positive climate for entertainment. And everything else. I think the ebor location because of its ability to tie everything to developments in tampa in make a corridor entertainment corridor. If you will between everything downtown tampa in ebor. I think they could have a significant effect that it'd be very very positive. And like i said. I've grown to accept the part-time velocity.

"He He brought in some of the smartest people Baseball had ever seen to run the franchise and they have literally changed major league baseball. That this team itself this ownership group and and the executives running this team running the baseball operation side of this team changed the way baseball operates and other teams are trying to emulate what the race have done to have the success on the field. They've had without spending as much money as their spending and my point is stromberg has done a lot of great things but this stadium. Businesses turned into a fiasco and and it's turned fans against him and to me. That's a shame. I mean he's he's had an incredible run as an owner. But it's being threatened by you. Know i don't want to say a ham handed or you know i just don't think they've handled the situation quite as well as they could have. And i think the sister city plan which they are now completely married to and they say You know they're not going to consider any other options other than split plan in tampa bay. I just don't think that's the stance they should be taken. If if you go back over the last fifteen years at one point you know the waterfront. Saint pete that you know. That's that's the only plan that's going to work. And then after that it was you know hillsborough county. That's the only way it's going to work. We have to be in hillsborough county. We have to be near the downtown marketplace. And now it's the sister city plan. That's the only plan that's going to work. I mean it's it's been a moving target for very long time. Would whatever seems to fit that day. Thank you so much. We appreciate it by appreciate you having me out. That was john. Romano sports columnist at the tampa bay times. Bill sutton has been following the raise stadium saga for a long time. He's an emeritus professor in these sports and entertainment management program at the university of south florida's moumouh college of business. He spent much of our conversation comparing.

"And we don't want to start developing that site until we have some certainty about whether a baseball stadium is going to go there. And and the other part of that problem is the use agreement that the rays have with the city entitles them to fifty percent of the development revenue Whenever that site gets built back up so if as the mayor wants to to start redeveloping it next year the rays are going to be making money off that redevelopment and they may not even end up building a stadium there and the raise may end up leaving in twenty twenty eight so basically you have a situation whereby redeveloping the land right now by doing it. on the mayor's timetable. You may actually be paying the raise money to leave the marketplace. And that's just one of those other tangents in this in this whole saga The other the other sort of big sticking point is that the principal owner of the raise. Do sternberg has come up with this plan. To what what. He calls the sister city plan where the raise would essentially split their home games between somewhere in the tampa bay region. Possibly and the city of montreal you mentioned that governments don't like to pony up money for for stadiums from especially from developers who have lots of money. I can't imagine any government into tampa bay region. Let alone any governments in the montreal. Region wants to Spend taxpayer money on a stadium. For what's essentially a part time home team and that's exactly why it's run into an impasse with mayor christman. Starnberg has said he would consider the tropicana field site which you know in the past the race have said we don't. We don't want the tropicana field site. It's already proven that it. It's not the best site for major league baseball in this market. It's too far away from from eastern hills. Even from downtown hillsboro we would like more centrally located site. He's changed his tune on that when it comes to The sister city idea because he says with only forty games at the trump site instead of eighty games a year they are. We think it can work so the mayor is now looking at the situation and and he said that the first proposal that the rays gave him in terms of how how we would build the stadium included them control in a lot of the acreage. There's tropicana field land and getting one. Hundred percent of the revenues from redevelopment on part of the land as opposed to fifty percent so christmans point was. Why am i going to give them a better deal than they already have when they're taking half the team away from the marketplace and that's a very legitimate argument on the mayor's part of the team says that it was just an opening bid and there's still room to negotiate but but you've hit on on the exact point of you know the razor saying the sister city concept works in a couple of ways you know principally because there won't be so many games here for people to attend so the race don't nita's much as much fans buy tickets but they also say it will work because it. It's only going to be done in. Tampa.

"The enemy to a harry palmer franchise because harry saltzman obviously launches the up. Chris file and produces the first three. But when you look at like a lot of the spy movies that are popular in the sixties it steph like the flint movies. The matt helm films thinks that are taking the more fun you know escapist elements of james bond and it feels like the public was really latching onto those when i look at the crystal movie i really love. I thought the episode was fantastic. I like funeral in berlin a lot. I wasn't as big on billion dollar brain but nonetheless. Like they have a very specific that i really enjoy. And i'm just wondering like if harry palmer was almost that franchise it would have been maybe a little more successful. Had it may be started in the seventies which is more of an era for that sort of you know. Gritty spy storytelling. It's a fair point discussion. I think these are all hypotheticals. Who knows what harry. If a harry's announcement had had more more funding for a fourth movie he knows. But i mean one observation always had this is i think it's very difficult to think about the character how he palmer but also to think about the movies and books outside the era in which they written the sixties. I think for me the nothing in a good way. They're very tight to that era. I think the character of harry palmer says of his mannerisms his what would now be termed programmatic approach to women is very sixties and and it fits that era and the age at which michael came was when he was playing the cat Sort of fits it all comes together instead of intense pairs at the two to three years of filmmaking where the character exploded maybe. Let's say there's a degree to which as these two movies we've discussed shows is maybe there's a. Everything has a lifespan. Well i mean it's interesting though. Because they are making ape. Chris file reboot. They are bringing up. Chris file back to tv. And i'm i'll be very curious to.

"It's in the extended version of the movie. Which i didn't get to see so the movie itself it was boy it was baffling in terms of plotting. I mean there. Are you know as rob alluded. So many double and triple crosses that it was like just head-spinning at a certain point trying to make sense of what was going on I feel like it's the type of movie you wanna whiteboard. When you're watching it just to keep track of all the players and the little red violets being you know it harry's carrying throat what that means and why it's there and who put it there and etc etc so in terms of like a spy plot not great especially when you compare it to the really well honed convoluted you could say story of saint funeral in berlin which is definitely confusing. But i feel like it does. Pay off all make sense. Psychologically within the The world of all these players whereas this one it just felt like doing a lot of those crosses for no reason and with characters who i didn't really even understand who they were like the cia guy. And i also knows this movie had a lot of What i would call cannon films action which cannon films made a lot of kind of be action movies through the eighties and this will be had a ton of those moments where would just cut to a really kind of cheesy shootout where like a character falls onto an electrical wire stuff. Like that sort of thing you'd see in like the death wish sequels but overall like it was not good but i found it somewhat watchable if that makes sense. It's not something. I would recommend anyone really unless you're really into the world of harry palmer but i did find it kind of interesting. I agree you can. You can spend a reasonable ninety minutes with cup of tea into an a snack and just you know it perfectly as you say is watchable what you divide is it. Apart from perhaps harry palmer given that he is played by mccain. You even in. The bad movie is pretty good very few of the characters actually really either understand or care for but it does have some say some sort of strange almost like funny unintentionally elements like you can tell. Basically they had to use for somebody who said we haven't abandoned airport nearby and let's use it because at one point Colonel gretzky used a sort of a pound store version of colonel stock. Says wait a minute. I know somebody in bryansk. And that's they switched to this airfield where they sort of opposite of chasing after this train. And it's it's this bizarre and it has nothing it doesn't really about the plot anyway but it's just like i'm sure it's because they had the use of an airfield for a couple of days you know. I figured it was either that or because they want to work in north by northwest omar. Because you have them on the train and then they get out and they get swooped by a plane. I was like. Oh okay well we got a little bit hitchcock to give the actors that jews. I would not want to be up in the sort of rusty russian bucket that they filmed in..

I didn't tell my hair out has some interesting elements to it has Michael cord number of sort of english character. Actors michael gambon. Alexey does a possible russian. Jason coterie is not a great actor and he's trying to be nice well trying to be nice. Whoa let's let's be. Frank is wooden as a cyborg in this movie but it has the added attraction of the rather attractive mia sara ferris buehler's girlfriend playing the road natasha and even though he's not on the dvd. I got there is a fleeting appearance by sue. Lloyd the actor who plays gene in the original hip chris far so there are some sort of harry potter fans. There are some interesting little sort of law dates back to the original three movies. This is sort of suggestion. That a jason connery's character. Nikolai is possibly harry.

So you know and the parties you know half chase movie half sit of heist movie this double-crossing triple crossing the drugs involved. The chinese and north koreans. It's like somebody's taking all the sort of ingredients from my. I spy movie cookbook. Throwing them into a pulp got to add some seasoning. That sort of thing. It's this the elements of there but it doesn't really hang together while rob really put the bullet in beijing cam. What about you okay. So this was one that i kind of dreaded going into because it's like how good is this going to be. When compared against a lot of the film craft that was happening on the first three. But it was a movie that i actually found in some ways a little bit entertaining in terms of reintroducing harry palmer into the nineties because like what is that like and where. This character is at being forced into retirement. We see that he's still got kind of that lady's man kind of vibe. We saw in the chris file. You know he's talking to his Girlfriend su Who's played by. Sue lloyd in the original on the phone which is kind of fun. There's a cut scene that rob alluded to it was not in my version.

He has had some generally in the past and quite challenging experiences with tb produces so. I didn't think he guy so. I'm sure it's it's definitely not something that i don't think len had a creative into indian creative input into which shows. Yeah the only thing i could find was that he said basically if they get michael caine back he put his name on it. Yeah i think that's without without michael. Cain the movie has nothing a to with harry mccain has something in these and that's not saying much so we're getting a clue to listeners that bullet to beijing And sister filming leads. Berg not shining examples of the spy. Maybe he's on. What are you talking about the best tv movies we've covered so yes my view. Yeah i watched them both over the last Three or four days just to refresh myself. I've watched him a few times. No many they are great for me. The word that came to my mind is that you have curiosity value. One is seeing michael. Cain or harry palmer if you will It is sort of down. He'll dress not in sort of a shop sixties Suit walking down soho. But in sort of anorak walking down some groti street in some petersburg so this is sort of interesting sort of angle about seeing a familiar character. In ritu circumstances plus there is also the sort of again a curiosity value in just seeing the fact that they were filming in russia fairly soon after the fall of communism. Isn't it so interesting. The fact that the product that came out with is not that great is by the by so seeing you know what russia was like in nineteen ninety five and it looks pretty grubby and down at hill. Place has somebody but yeah if you were expecting Looks of action and lots of plot twists and great acting. This isn't your maybe. And that's been i am curious. I'm curious if you have any idea because there are you know. Annette adapted len deighton. Harry palmer spy novels like horse underwater. Or whatever like do you have any idea or like what the thinking was behind. Why these two movies bullet to beijing and the one. We're gonna talk about a few minutes. Were entirely original stories. I don't have any particular insight on there. My suspicion is that as with a law things in the movie business. It was probably money opportunity involved. Somebody saw opportunity with. I imagined that feeling in russia in nineteen ninety five is pretty cheap. I mentioned that there was probably a gap in harry. Michael caine schedule There was probably. Mr towers was at a loose end and you know the fates combined to bring them together in petersburg to film these two movies. I suspect there was no more sort of strategic thinking that makes sense from a financial standpoint. I imagine the amount you have to pay at linda in four making the quiz file goal horse. Underwater is far more than the original script lightly touching on.
