"Calvin Hill has joined us on Sports Byline USA. You're taking in the first round of the sixty sixty nine draft by the Dallas cowboys were the first player from an Ivy League school to be drafted in the first round and it was a controversial pick and I assume that it was because because they didn't feel that Yale playing the Ivy League played up against the talent of some of the other schools we talked about a little bit earlier yeah according to you know what I what I subsequently learned that they put all the stuff in the computer your test scores and your physical fitness times etc and it and it spun me out and I was like third or fourth you know a- ranked meets three to four and then it was adjusted by by the coaching staff and you know I was there you know when when when the cowboys I think it was the twenty fourth choice I was available and you know it's interesting. I've told this story I had called. It's not like it is today where the draft is is is televised and you know exactly you can watch it on TV or who it on the radio back then you know you it was it was done pretty much obscurity and they were just notified the press excetera and I had called a team mate of mine to tell him that he had been drafted by the New York football giants in the second row and I pretended to be Wellington Mirror and and I could hear him tell his teammates his roommates is the giants and you know I went on and on about how excited we were to have them etc and you know just when I could hear him. No you know loop and everybody nobody was getting excited. I started laughing and told him it was a joke and then I locked my door because he was a pretty big guy and you know and then and I don't know about an hour later I got the call from from from the cowboys and I pretty much thought it was somebody playing the same kind of joke on me and as it turned out you know it was Gillibrand and I think then he put Tex Schramm on the phone and I'm playing alone and then you know they put coach Landry on the phone and it was something unmistakable about his voice I guess I had heard it on TV and and all of a sudden I realized this could be the real deal and it was only when I got a phone call from the sports reporter for for the new haven register that I realized it was a real deal and it was you know it was a shock it was really shocked to me. Calvin you mentioned when we were talking about playing baseball jail that she had no desire to go south of the Mason Dixon Line and last time. I looked Dallas south of the Mason Dixon line. Did you have any hesitation. He shouldn't for those reasons as well that really I mean you know I. I guess I consider Texas as being more west. I didn't realize you know and it is I mean it's much south as it is West but you know in my mind it was more West than anything and I didn't know what you know. I never been west the alleghenies so I wasn't you know necessarily no I had no knowledge or no no preconceived notions of what to expect. I guess when you know when I flew out there two things one I thought I'd see a lot of the cowboy boots and I thought you know Sagebrush and all that and and it was a little different from the APOCRYPHA was a little different than what I expected because you know it didn't look like West Texas. didn't look look like Texas of the movies etcetera and then you know this is only six years after President Kennedy had been assassinated so that was also in my mind this is the place that you know President Kennedy was assassinated and that was still very fresh. and you know it was still fill us very much a shock that that could happen in this country and so those are the things that I was concerned about in terms of moving and then you know obviously you know I was going to a team that had Bob Hayes and Mel Renfro and Don Meredith Etcetera and so that was a little sobering Aubrey. thought that I was going to be playing with these guys that I've seen on television. Let me ask you about the organization and the team because I think most people think back to that period of time if they've read North Dallas forty that they probably got a different impression and Tom Landry. I got to know pretty well over over the years he was a very strict guy was a religious guy as well and I'm just wondering the organization the way it was portrayed in the way it was actually was for a player. You're who played in the organization. What are the pros and cons what were the myths and the realities well? You know it was very corporate. I mean you know I I think you know they elevated. Is it you know to to corporate level and they did things in a very business like you know way. Hey and make decisions very you know I mean in some respects she the way it was portrayed was was was was was very correct. Although although you know I I think you know one of the people that I really you know really came to like and respect and I think he has been portrayed a very wrongly by a lot of people what's Gillibrand Gillibrand was a genius is a genius and personnel personnel genius and that was a very human quality about him. at Tom Landry was brilliant as a as a football coach as XS is in those coach you know I don't know if he was shy but you know he could also he you know he could he could also be very you know sort of cold. TEX TEX SCHRAMM was very business oriented and very tough extremely tough but you know obviously a genius in his own right when you you think in terms of the things that he did you know and helping them make the cowboys America's team cheerleaders the helmets etc era and then we were owned by a Guy Clint Murchison who you know I mean he's like the forgotten man he was the initial owner and he left he left after football people alone. you know hired the best people and let them do their job but I think you know when you look in terms of this whole stadium a phenomenon and boxes etcetera and the way these stadiums financed now he was the first person I've really come up with that concept at Texas Stadium India. Let me take you to January Sixteenth Nineteen seventy-two the site is New Orleans for the Super Bowl and the cowboys pick up their first super bowl victory by beating the dolphins twenty twenty four to three and this was the second Super Bowl for the Dallas cowboys their second appearance and they really had come into that game had they not with a reputation and not being being able to win the big playoff game such as super bowl number five and and the nineteen sixty six and sixty seven. Nfl Championship Games was that a stigma that the team had had the organization had going into that super bowl yeah I I would even say one of the reasons. Danny Dan retired is because you know he you know he he just got ah overwhelmed by by that stigma. You know we always next year's champions. in fact one of the Writers Steve Perkins wrote a book called us with next year's champions and we just could not get over the Hump and so you know I it was it was a relief I think because finally only we had one the big one and you know it was it was a really exciting time. I mean you know to see I mean yeah to see coach to coach Landry who was so instrumental in so many of the innovations of the of the Martin Professional Professional Game Now finally get his due as the winning super bowl coach and you know I played on a team I mean people don't realize what played played Miami and they had I think five or six future pro bowlers hall of Famer on their offense they had you know you know Brian Greasy to hit Paul Warfield Larry's Donka they had learned little I'm trying to think of this center. I think is is in the hall of fame and we you know we stop stop them. They got three points and we dominated that game almost from the beginning and you know it was yes those ten seconds when they start counting down before the final gun goes off and you know as a team that you know uh you are you going to be the winner. Let me let me ask you about a couple of other players just briefly because I do want to talk about the redskins and also Cleveland even here but let me what are your memories of Roger Starbuck and Bob Hayes well. you know Roger Rogers the kind of guy that if he we're after you a job it'd be difficult to sleep because you know he's he would stay up all night. If it had to trying to figure out how to get your job very competitive guy competitive person as anybody I've ever met you know you hear stories about Michael Jordan and you know Roger has that same level of a competitiveness a great team mate you know he was just a sensational teammate and I mean he's he and his family a friend of mine to this day. you know Bob Hayes was just a a freak of nature her I mean he I mean even today when we talk about Him we talk about this is incredible speed and you know the things he was able to do because of that speed sometimes you'd watch him catch a pass and take two or three steps and then he was just explode and you don't think that the film had been spliced Bob was a very easy going guy sort of a happy go lucky guy. you know Roger was much more serious but both of them yeah I mean I I I was very fortunate to to to to to a play on a team with both of them in relative to the fact that I was able to do that after one year in the WFL you come back into into the national football league. He signed as a free agent with the Washington Redskins. Now you have played for coach Tom Landry and now of course you have George Allen as your coach. What what was the dichotomy between the two? What were the similarities between the two Calvin well the similarities that both of them were great defensive coaches? you know a a I mean they. They started out a great defense coach. I think George you know whereas you know. Coach manager was also very involved in the offense leading a multiple offense George one of the very simplistic offense your the thing that really stood out as far as you know George Allen was his understanding of the importance of special teams prior to coming through the redskins special teams but something you.

"Guy who carved a statue dwight to now is not not a professional artist at all he was not it was the sergeant at arms of the state house and there's a lot of speculation about whether he did all or part of it or who knows yeah we're we're we're we're leaning towards or pretty sure that he did the head and <hes> we have great photographs of him working on that in a shed that used to be behind the state house. Listen our cafeteria is and he employed some of the the young bucks who worked for him at the state house to do the body and the body is made of all of these pieces pieces of ponderosa pine like to four two by sixes that have all been glued together in one big chunk and then like pieces of rebar pounded in there to hold all that together <hes> and then that was carved into kind of a rudimentary body with the real artistry of that statue is in in the head <hes> by this. I you know untrained untrained wood carver who happened to be the sergeant arms at the time and he said you know what i can do this a lot cheaper than hiring somebody to do it vermont away. I guess i'm often ribbed the sergeants at arms since then asking will what have you done. That's useful like dwight vinyl wondering why we had to hire an artist to do a new one yeah well. We'll talk to sergeant miller about the hassle. That'd be fun so you can see the statue. Actually that used to be on top of the dome beginning on the twenty sixth of october the history museum in montpellier so <hes> put that on your schedule steve perkins a director. This historical society is <hes> is our guest and <hes> another key project of the society. Overtime is publications. <hes> you've published pushed a lot of <hes> books that <hes> have brought to our state's history to delight and and the latest one <hes> is very interesting. <hes> it falls up on the conversation conversation. We were happening. We're having with the governor scott <hes> during the last segment on our demographic challenge and <hes> we can attract more people to come and populate in our state <hes> t- tell us about that book yeah so this conversation that we have about you know populating vermont and what's going on with the population aging population relation is something that we've been having you know throughout our history <hes> really since the civil war <hes> on up until up until now and so the the powers the or the community of vermont was having these conversations in the early twentieth century and a local historian local vermont historian impulse arose teaches at northern vermont university wrote a book using some case studies from the early twentieth century about how vermont irma started to address this issue of how do we attract people to our state. How do we get folks to settle in these communities. <hes> how do we stop a young people from leaving the state and in fact get young people to move into the state on these questions or taking place in his book he writes that we're taking place in the nineteen teams teams thanking twenties and into the nineteen thirties and it's a fascinating look at how we as reminders during that time mm-hmm tried to address these questions and you know for better for worse and <hes> and it raises questions of how do we define our own community entity so the book is very specific on these on these areas..

It's great to have you on the show. Well thank you very much. I always say almost a two hundred years well. It's close enough for government work but i think i'm sure i'm listeners know the vermont. Historical society is headquartered in berry has a library the museum there and of course the vermont history museum and the pavilion building in downtown montpellier <hes> but of course you have a lot of activities <hes> all across the state as well and <hes> we appreciate <hes> all that you do to to keep reminders touch with our very storied past. I know one thing you're you're working on <hes> so now steve is the installation of the second series statue that during the dome of the the state house in a permanent home. Tell us about that yeah absolutely so you know we all watched with rapt attention. As the crane took the the <hes> i think beloved statue off the top of the state house <hes> last last year and a brand new statue went up gorgeous modern sculpture <hes> <hes> but i think we i was asking well what's going to happen with the statue that came down and we were approached by the state curator's office about about <hes> providing a permanent home for that sculpture which was done in nineteen thirty eight <hes> epa vermont historical society <hes> we of course have off of portions or pieces of the original statue carved by larkin meet way back in eighteen fifty eight <hes> in our collection so it it seemed to make a a really nice display so that we could talk about <hes> that early decoration of the state house and we'll be putting it in the front end vermont history museum so you can you can take a look at it and then you can actually peek out the window or step out onto the porch and and see the current statue <hes> on top of the state house <hes> as it is is right now <hes> but it it hasn't been an easy process to get this statue ready for the exhibition well interestingly <hes> each of the previous two statues as lasted almost exactly eighty years <hes> but i gather that the folks who are of the new one hope that it'll last longer as i write yeah. The artist chris miller has this one is going to last a hundred years so <hes>. I'm not sure i'll be around to test that theory but <hes> we have him on on the record saying that this statue that came down <hes> you know ultimately once it it it came down in a warehouse and under the care of a conservative it it it. It's okay <hes> you know the it was certainly waterlogged. I think with a reading was ninety. Seven ninety eight percent of water water content <hes> when a probe was stuck into it but it hasn't been completely dried out. It's stable now. <hes> there was a bit of loss around the shoulders shoulders and certainly a bit of wash near the bottom of the statue or at attached to the top of the state house <hes> but the the conserved conservatives down or the guy who fix six artwork <hes> down in kuichi. You've done a wonderful job with the head <hes> and that'll be reattached to the body. The part of the bottom of the statue is going to be sliced off of it. It gets rid of some of the rotten pieces allows us to mount it safely and fitted inside the room. Which is the front front room of the historical society museum in pewter.

"And I was like, what? That's baffling. It's just like he's his job was to play a game. It's almost like the scene in arrested development were Tobias is going around being like, heard about that Fugate like it's literally that, but on a national scale. So weird and the internet sort of grooved his approach to it. There's also another person here. His name's Navinder sing surrou- and he's from another article called six random. Nobody's who secretly run the world. He was one person. He was living in his parents house in London, and he was in his early thirties, but he used the internet to spoof trading contracts. He would make it seem as if a train was going to happen, and then it didn't. And he apparently made fifty million dollars doing that. Did he go to jail? I don't exactly know. It's very hard to tell if he went to jail or not, because also financial news is hard to read a very difficult to track. He was taken in by Tom Hanks from catch me if you can assure. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, how but he hasn't. I mean, it's all fake, but he only got caught because one move he did in two thousand ten crashed the Dow Jones by six hundred points. So it didn't crash crash it, but it went down quite a bit and then they were like what's going on? And it was because this one guy did a bunch of fake trades to such an extent. And there's a Bloomberg article about how he also lost the whole fortune just separately through stuff. He invested in and other people scammed him, and it's it's weird to me that I think I was raised thinking that a lot of different people and companies and actual work is what runs the stock market. And in many cases, it's just like bold individuals, random people just deciding I'm the person who gets to wear that shirt into the stock thing. That's there's no qualification. Zero, my ex studied engineering and then you're like, you wanna come be a traitor in. He was like, I know how to build bridges. Could I do this instead? And they were like, yeah, whatever you seem like you look good in that shirt come on over. I didn't even think about it. I am wearing a contrast collar shirt right now, and I didn't think about it in terms of like, I'm coming to talk about the stock market. It's very different from the Michael Douglas shirt. I don't mean to okay, make people listening at home think you're wearing that exact, but I would love for them to think that and suspenders have gray hair just picture Michael Douglas. That's who I am. One of those enormous beige phones with antennas. That's what I'm talking into right now by so by. So they just hang up. I've moved antenna down. Speaking of commodities too, because one thing that I think is maybe not necessarily public knowledge is that there's also a stock market currency market, a commodity market. There's all sorts of different spaces that these things get traded and and with commodities, there was a guy named Steve Perkins and he's in, I wanna cite these people's great crack writing at six people who single-handedly screwed entire Connie's. It's by Robert Evans, Sam Cooper and St. Perkins was an oil trader. So he was trained the commodity of oil, which as many of us now is very valuable and in twenty ten, he went out drinking all weekend. Like the company did a paid trip for them to go drink and party. And then he decided to just keep drinking Monday and Tuesday. When he got back to work, he'll just keep it going because he's a role. And then he ended up buying five hundred twenty million dollars in oil over a one thousand nine period where apparently he was just kind of blacked out and it was up to sixty nine. Percent of the total world trading and oil because apparently and has line of work. You only are supposed to purchase stuff when people ask you to pay for it in, and he just kind of went ahead and did it. And I guess there's no rules or systems or anything. Jerry what year was this? It was twenty ten God. So what happened? They just kind of tried to switch it all back as far as I can. Oh, no. Did he go to jail? There's no Jason. Stake in the economy went to jail, no jails, full of people of color who had one gram of wheat. The end. I think also there is, I mean, a party culture societas with Wall Street to like a masculine sort of like, yeah, party hang out Lee, you know, be be at the office all hours like, I'm sure these people are not healthy is seems like, yeah, yeah. And then they're like bleary eyed and tired and like and like coming down from cocaine and they're like, I don't know what's the world economy that sure. That's who we want in charge. Yes, those guys, I'm thinking of pop culture again, like wolf of Wall Street. Matthew mcconaughey is advising Leonardo Caprio on the uppers downers and masturbation. He used three day right need to do these things to my body to make my brain function to move the entire world economy of job. Okay. Yes. So they can just say, could just switch it back. I for one thing don't know a lot about the economy but researchers best it can, but also I feel like journalism struggles to cover this stuff because I think the the articles we've put together and then also what they're drawing on tends to cover like the mistake or event of it, you know. And I don't know if there's that much follow up on what happens to these people like maybe all of them went to jail. I don't really know. Yeah. Yeah, I wasn't even sure like the Martha Stewart thing, the insider trading. Yeah, I wasn't even. I was like, whoa, what. I guess it's like they are not allowed to give information. I don't. I think if you ask five people on the street, they would have no idea what insider trading is. Yeah, I think they would only know the vibe of it. They would be like, I dunno, she did something shady. Exactly. That's, that's. That's a the vibe is very clear, but that's it. They like snuck some info. Okay. Why? Why is that bad? If you can write in and tell me why insider trading as bad at WWW dot? Why is it bad dot com? Oh, that should be my new podcast is bad, and then I come on until things are bad. Just very as activities that idea. Yeah, I just have people on it. I'm like, hey, so like this idea, why is it bad? Please communism? Yeah, I don't know what's wrong, right, and I don't necessarily think they're good. Oh, sure. I just need to know what my argument is. When I say it's bad. Heart of the job description for handling this stuff. As far as I can tell is you're allowed to mess up some of the time or if mistakes happen. It's an element of how it works because there's also a guy in that same article as Ames, David exe Lee and he was a, he's a mathematician, but also works in the markets. And he came up with a something called the Gosse an Coppula function. Okay. And this was a very complex formula that let people try to predict how debt would work and then sort of place bets on that debt called collateralized debt obligations and long story short. It was a formula that worked absolutely perfectly for letting people make money almost automatically for about five years because they would just bet on whether debts get paid back or not. And someone would always worked all sorts of different kinds. And then eventually these people started using it to bet on housing market debt, and then housing market. What caused the entire great recession that we have lived short? Exactly. I know there's a lot of factors going into something like that. One of them is that this one guy thought of one formula that was so successful at one point, people were saying this guy should win a Nobel prize because he's making so many people wealthy at it, raises them out of poverty or something like that. Okay. And then it suddenly didn't work in the whole economy crash, and it can happen that way because one guy does something that's peeling to a few other people, and I, it's amazing to me that the economy can be in the hands of just a couple of people. It seems crazy. Yes. And also that it's in the hands of like we just trust these dudes. Yeah, we're like, I don't know what is he a guy seems legit like what so so. Okay. So people were betting that this, that this would get paid back? Yeah, a move. It was investors. They could take a set of debts and bundle them into one thing that you can invest in. And this became its own Marquette, and it grew from initially being something that nine hundred twenty billion dollars we're in, which is a lot to sixty two trillion dollars. Oh, which is I think just more money than I've ever seen written down in any way. And so then it was big and then it fell out. Here's the thing is that when people say, oh, we can't do total student loan forgiveness. Where would the money come from? We can't fix Flint's water crisis. Where would the money come from? Do you know where it would come from this shit? Who is holding onto this fence budget is so big. Like two people have all the money in our whole country, and then we go auto know where the money would come from. Okay. I have some ideas. And twenty trillion or whatever. You said a sixty. Two trillion sixty two trillion. One trillion could cover student loan. Do you know any. You know what? I don't understand. What do you even need all that money for to just make more money that was their whole goal. I feel like people on both sides of we don't have the money for that or why don't we have the money for that either way where all just sort of guessing what all the numbers are. Yeah. And the people who say there is enough money to fix it are correct because there is enough if you just look at it at a Broadway, it's billions versus trillions, but we just are like so individualized that we're like, well, that guy who made sixty trillion. He probably did something better than than us. Am I soc socialize? Probably. I'm just like, why does this guy need all of that? I don't know if people understand that all of that is an expression of priorities, like it's all we could prioritize taking care of all those things. Like is it? Is it something where we feel like the way we're prioritizing things now makes the whole thing run and we don't wanna break. It almost feel like people are like that individual imperative and will, and cowboy element is what makes the economy go. So if we blow that up, we'll lose everything. There's this mythology especially around the stock market of like we learned it well or like that. This person did something special, but I don't think they did and it's like, and then we're kept out of it because we're told that even you saying like, I don't understand the writing on it. That's on purpose. That's to keep like certain people like a barrier to entry all financial stuff, financial writing, all like money, blogs, all all of it is is sort of tick. A has like a barrier of entry to keep certain people out because they write in jargon and they don't need to write in that jargon. They just do it in order to like make things more complicated so that like they can keep certain people out out of the out of investing out of the stock market and like intimidate people away from like up, money's hard. I just don't know. I was not even start to learn, then that's why there's no economic mobility. So I think a lot of people have had that feeling. I know I've had it. Yeah, it's, it's really a scary. Yeah, of course. And I, it's, I've made all of this stuff. My fulltime job in, like I said, I still don't know anything. Nothing.
