The Bottle vs. Tap Battle: Which Tastes Better?
"Are in the ring with tap and bottled and it's time for the first round. Let's start with a question of taste. My name is martin reason. I live in los angeles. And i am a water somali. So many years at gentleman who works in a restaurant and recommends to from wine pairings. I'm doing the same with water. Amazingly this is not satire. This is real mini documentary all about martin the war to somali. Sometimes i'm so proud to be angelino my passion for water against child but a drinker professionally since two thousand this whole water semi business has got to be totally well to keep it clean. I'm going to call it bull honky a water sommelier. This is penn and teller's point exactly that it's hor spooky that said their guests. Were totally fooled by the fancy menu. Even though they were drinking identical glasses of water what do you think about the amazon pressure. Okay now i can take on. this is definitely tasted. It's it's almost too easy to make fun of this. Whole business of different waters tasting different. But also penn and teller isn't necessarily the most trusted source for food news so we figured we should be open minded and scientific and test this whole thing out ourselves. We bought a bunch of different types of bottled waters and we through our own top water into the tasting mix. and then we each deputized partners. Tim and jeff to create a blind taste test for us. Tim down fourteen little glasses. Got a hold of some tap water and then he opened and poured each bottle and one cam here in los angeles. Jeff did the same following the instructions. On tim's spreadsheet we'd picked an american spring water the couple of european mineral waters some bottled process tap water specifically aquafina and then to mix things up. We added one of those bogus alkaline waters and some artesian water. All the way from the south pacific we have an array of glasses and each row of glasses represents different types of bottled water. There is some tap water in there to throw you off and we are hoping to see that you might or might not be able to tell the difference. I have to say. I embarked on this with a lot of confidence in my discriminatory abilities. At least when it comes to beverages nothing None of my previous wine tasting experience is helping me here but let me take a sip.

Dearborn our our great friend who passed away a few years ago and you know he was such a unique individual that we got to work with dell and i remember getting to work with him. I coming in and sort of all characters. Kind of being at del And knowing that tim i don't really know when he started or how long he was at dell but i know that we all have our own individual little stories that we fortunately got to have along along with tim so i think we should just kind of talk about it and kind of go over all all the years in good times that we've got we've got to have with him. Sounds goodwill pedro. You probably had the first encounters with with timid adele right so I met him at a party. Designer which i will still at ibm in design issues to host parties. At christmas. Time and tim got a job that i applied for so i am like who the heck is this guy. It was a little bit of friction on my apartment is because he's dark about how to believe so Long story short a couple of years later of vp. That didn't want to hire any exit. The emmers left or was not avi anymore. And i got the job so Team and i and a handful of other people. Try to coordinate. Some of the stuff goes all the Divisions were running autonomous nocal- business. No commonality with lois or any of that stuff Always admired the guy. He was always very creative. Not only work with some some stuff that he helping with outside of the thing that you see right here We used to host. Thank all read. That later became role. Hold because michael dell decided to partner up with that guy that did. The red products denied decided that me change the name anyways. Tim donations for rojo. Rojo was say challenge designers in town to donate our original art and we would auctioned off a genie's moving art and the proceeds build somebody so That's a crayon painting drawing whatever the tended ola were you nice rolling in so i'll wrap up soon I think we became real good friends.

I know but we used to meet at jimmy's longhorn at least once a week in how a bud light and these were I'm not. I'm not working. I don't confirm nor deny no never no working hours on a window at the mosquito garden were every time we had beers would appeal a late label from the bud light and stick it on window so last time tim was in town he He brought in up some kind of sticker and that's the last label. was replaced on that that window. There's still air through. Four generations of bud light stickers. That's cool that's great. I knew definite about that. That is a school. i. I remember when i when i got in there was tim and eric and everybody was scattered in the studio. There was no like real location for everyone. We were kind of in various spots in the cube farm. And tim just was doing whatever it was. It was you guys are in the middle of e one design development. And i remember it is whenever i would. He'll hook up with taiwan. He would always regale the same story over how he got dinged on his performance review. Two years in a row. On two-tone black pain eric member. That is just. He would always like i two times. I got dinged on my performance review from kid on that times really funny. What was with the paint. What what was it. We made the mistake of trying to do to tone black paint. One was it like seven gloss. Units and the other one was like seventeen humidity and we were trying to differentiate in of course the tolerances from the factories were at least ten loss unit so it was just. It was just a nightmare. And i think tim had the unfortunate position of sitting by the the large Meeting room and so whenever anybody would need anything need a model they would always come and bothered. And and i think i think and i don't know this for a fact but there was a two-tone model that can kept asking for. I think tim threw it away. I think he finally got rid of it because it was just it was going nowhere and it was. It was really a bad situation in in. I believe that he got rid of it. I think i think that sounds. You didn't same thing with the The original e series one. One that he worked on with the pentagram when they brought that into the meeting and there was that whole issue about the thickness of it. So that because i remember being at.

Bryant and a lot of players of that generation and even maybe michael's peers to get michael's validation. I do you know it's funny. Everybody is looking for michael's approval. That's like the ultimate acknowledgement from somebody. But michael standards are so high that when you finally earned acknowledgement you really have to earn at acknowledge what he's just not going to give it to you because you want a couple of championships or you want an mvp or even if you did you know three in a row three peat. It's like they're still more to do because most individuals once they reach one of those goals they don't have what's next michael always had what's next so he wanted to see these gills. Continue to work on that craft. Continue to chase winning. Continue to get better not be satisfied so if he his thing was if i acknowledge these individuals too soon are they going to a place where they should be. He's valley calculated about saying these things optimally saying stuff to continue to see how much more each individual each player has in them to continue to win. Tim you write winning your new book. The unforgiving race to greatness you right in there that kobe worked harder but michael worked smarter. Describe the difference in how those two trained approach preparation with kobe. It was very difficult to get him to stop. He always wanted more. He always wanted. Poor always always wanted more and he would have a lot of pieces on his team. That had hard time coexisting together at certain times in his career. Michael's team was very cohesive that it was a small group. Everybody knew their role. Everybody knew what they were spoke. Everybody knew what they were supposed to do. And they did you trust the very few. He trusted very few people. And when you told michael enough that's it for the day he would lily. Say i hired you to do this part. I trust you enough enough enough whether it's practice whether to work out where it's an extra work going from shots. Whatever whatever it may be with koby it was never enough. It was always or it was always more. It was always more and the biggest difference between the two of them was. I actually had to teach kobe and work with him. How stop in that only habits from a training standpoint but also teaches muscles how to stop to to make sure his career could last longer. Tim i remember so many times being in l. A. being out west with you and mike prokopenko who's the great skills trainer and kobe used to call his swiss army knife Who would help them breakdown. Film and Attack different defenses or different opponents and and do on the court stuff when you were working on his body and his mind and being with both of you out in la and the hours that you had to keep with kobe him calling you at all hours of the night to go and workouts to say let's go to a gym or let's go grab dinner late. What was it like being on call with colby in those days. He did it often often. I would get these caught. You'd finish the game. The game gets done ten ten thirty than after treatment by tommy lee. The locker room and everything now. He go in his direction. Many times sometimes go together and he would say i'd get a call at three o'clock in the morning and you can turn your phone off. The conversation was always like what are you doing. I'm sleeping. that's what you should be doing. And he wanted to talk about something or say. Hey let's go get. Let's go get shots up. 'cause he was watching the film from the game or whoever he was gonna compete against next and saw something that he needed to he needed to work on and he couldn't get that rest until he actually worked on that thing that was that was his body and his mind could really rest until we knew whatever he had to do to get that win that he worked on it meticulously so the call was twenty four. It was twenty four seven and that lifestyle wasn't for it wasn't for everyone but i was. I was accustomed to it. Didn't have the same schedule with michael. Michael was more a. This is my practices my practice time. This is what i'm work out. The the fluctuation with j k more. We were traveling a kobe. Yeah even if he did his morning workout. You knew you were just it. Just wasn't that was that was more that was more to and oftentimes we will get in heated discussions about no. You're not going to do more if you just not. You played thirty plus minutes. This is what happened a game out you need to just. This is not the time to go get to go get another work or if we did go get it nother workout. We'd walk through something. We'd walk through shooting so free throws a the record or Or did somehow activation stuff on his muscles released off to kind of get them ready for the next getting ready for the next day tim.

But i'm now realizing that my strongest Attribute has always been mckean either keanae for the market. I'm investing and i'm building businesses. So if you want to build businesses we can build businesses But i'm just bored with Entertainment i'm just. I'm in a different sphere. Okay put myself in a different space after. You've just bought stock in movie theaters to movie theaters. I went in when heavy and hold the line. We are showing that the institutional wall street and big money players that we are resting bat wrestling back a little power back. What you explain this Give me some context and It was hurting my views on on. Read it some a wall street bats on read it and it is a You know to read it where people discuss stock prices. Okay everybody on that. Read it talking about you know go. They went into game. Stop because all these big hedge funds short stocks like like game style an idiot. Can you explain to me what i've tried to date. Men that are hedge fund managers. I know that's something. It's just a lot of rich people to pool their money together. And you wanna marry. But what is a hedge fund a lot of high net worth individuals. It's an investment vehicle for high net worth individuals that pull their money together and then somebody obviously manages that money and invest and invested in iraq. Not like a 401k. No no i mean everyone can have 401k. You could work at a place. I have a four one k. Weekly just explained it. And i'm more confused. Well it's just we'll just it's a it's a fund for very wealthy people that wanna make a lot of money. Okay and a lot. A lot of these hedge funds shorted stocks like game. Stop because games stocks. What does that mean that. It will fail betting that it's not going to be valid because no one's going to go into All of the movie business right okay. So what people will bet started to do. And said hey. Wouldn't it be fun if we started buying these stocks so that the people that short them. How did that cover their bats. Because you're betting on soccer fail and it doesn't fail you gotta cover the cover the short right. So it's actually they force game. Stop up my producer. Ben knows how much i went from four dollars to. I think it peaked around like four ninety so from four dollars to four hundred ninety dollars a share to twenty. Now it's like a prank. It's a prank also like basically saying you guys have been nip. Y- elated the market for very long time. Now you've artificially inflated the price of things you have you know. Played this game now. We have the information people on ready to have the information. We have things like robin hood and these apps and allow you to trade stocks. Why not want to get into the game. Why can't regular people get into the game in the same way that all these institutional wall street guys have been in the game forever right and then of course as soon as that started happening. The government pressured robinhood. That app everyone was training on. And then i'm sure they had other pressure coming from other people And they stop trading today On those stocks right on game stop on. Amc a robin hood. You couldn't do jimmy. Amc or nokia right so that the companies that people were pushing they said you cannot trade on those companies which is insane insane seemingly illegal because nobody was doing anything wrong route. Nobody was doing anything illegal. The sec's not investigating any of those companies. There's no reason really free trading. So robin hood has now come out and said we're going to open limited trading tomorrow and watch it which still seems sauce but again it's like this is what happens when you try to get a seat at the table and this is kind of a movement that started on read that is now becoming somewhat somewhat powerful and distressing and it's causing a lot of these guys money so i got in for a decent amount of chaos like i just kind of chaos like i feel like we're loosened it's chaos we hacked. They hacked the stock market. It's chaos and they are. They want to see to the table and they know that they're not going to get a seat at the table like this but they also know that this can leave some egg on the face of very wealthy people. and why not That's the real question. Why not even ben shapiro. Who defends the markets and capitalism and everything came out and said you'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at what's happening yeah like most people are sitting back and going now. Of course there's the argument against it saying that it completely turns the stock market into casino blabbity blah however what it ever not a casino always people in this country especially after this quarantine being told the can't work being told to shutter their businesses not getting any support from the government and then watching the stock market. Just keep going up. Not reflecting any of the reality on the ground stock market keeps going up keeps going up. All these people are without jobs. Why not there's people getting rich. Why would they not do this. And i'm i'm happy to be part of it. Like why would this have happened without the pandemic. i don't think so it might have. It certainly could have. I feel like we've you know all gone into a feral state of self preservation. Every man for himself right. Like i feel like we've just you have people read it. That are showing how much they made. And i can. I can help my mother. Who has lime disease now. Like now i can help somebody. That didn't have the money now. I can write my mother check. Pay for my sister's with the redistribution of power and wealth. Looks like is it happening. I mean i it was until they shut down the government deep blue like who often her up.

"I felt that way for the last eight weeks nine weeks we've been producing this Really that i'm waiting for the public's really grasped how big this was and latch onto these details in realize what actually happened here. So i think the biggest thing is that the nba signed in two thousand seven A sunday seven point. Four billion dollar television rights deal with espn disney and turner sports They did so five days after learning about the donaghy scandal in one year before their previous agreement was set to expire. So let's think about that. David stern the time here is david stern. The nba learned about the scandal. Five days later they signed a deal for seven point. Four billion dollars with the tv partners knowing that the donahue scandal was coming down the pike the biggest gain on the league's history that was going to jeopardize the league as a whole the integrity. The league everything there in was about to explode and they had the audacity to look turner on espn in the eye and so yet signed his. Siamese were good to go. That is insane that a lot. That's public if you know where. Look that those details you compete together the time line if you're a casual internet sleuth and that never nobody's ever talked about that and we interview. Fbi agent fills scholar where he breaks it down. He was in the meeting with stern so he can confirm. I met with stern on this day. This contract was signed five days after an in the story was leaked a month later. That's that's insane in a lawyer with. That's just unethical. Or if that is is illegal. I don't know but i i tried to talk lawyers about that on the record and unfortunately most who understand the dealings of sports contracts in sports tv contracts and those are very few lawyers in the country that i think work in that realm. Nobody wanted to speak on the record. But that's huge. The other big thing is scott foster. Scott foster is the biggest referee in the league right now. He's essentially the new age. Dicta veteran joey crawford. He's the guy when he enters a game we as fans kinda roll our eyes like. Oh man this guy right. So scott foster donahue's relationship. They exchanged one hundred and thirty. Four phone calls in the five months at the height of the scheme on don. He's on the phone that the f. b. i. said donohue was using primarily for gambling related purposes and their relationship is always been questionable. And there's a lot of circumstantial evidence that links these two guys and there's never been any questions asked and scott foster he's gone on and just become the nba to referee makes about a million dollars years far as i know and we trust him. We trust this guy to referee the most important games in the nba. And i don't. I don't trust scott foster answers my questions about his relationship with tim donahue or somebody's questions about his relationship with don. Trust the guy. Those are a couple. The i mean if you look at just let's see. There's there's two parts really. There's there's the scandal. There's what there's what tim donaghy was doing on the court and the gambling betting related to tim donaghy and there is probably close to a billion dollars. Move just on tim don. He's games from two thousand three two thousand seven. There was a lot of people that were privy to how the scheme works and a donohue was fixing games and that just ballooned to balloon to balloon. That's that's a huge scandal and billions of dollars moving just on that. And then there's the conspiracy. Conspiracy is what was the nba throughout from nineteen eighty four. Two two two thousand seven. What were they doing. What were they communicating to their referees. What was happening with the system. And that's that's always been more interesting question. May i think they're both interesting in the podcast..

Want my pc five K. is actually I. Think About Twenty, eight, hundred, twenty something like that pretty fast and then, and when do you get a runner's high? When would you experience that I think for me I, always get the highs after I've done the training I think that's when you feel really refreshed and you're kind of pleased with the performance or what you've done. So I think for me that's that's always the high point after training as I mean when it's done, you're like it's done and finally Tim why is it that you love running? As we spoke is really 'cause it clears my head and it's where I can think and I just feel so much better psychologically even if it's you know not doing me good physically but actually is beneficial psychologically as physically and for anyone listening right now who's maybe struggling right now and not sure they will they're thinking of walking what would you say to them?

Well, look thank you so much for coming Rumford. Thank you.

Its is pretty is pretty special to be up in space and to be able to go running and run on a treadmill is fantastic experience. Yeah. We are GonNa talk a lot more this.

I mean there's a there's a long road to becoming an astronaut and when I around speak to school children, students, university and they always what do I need to do? What do I need to will there's no set path and the most important thing is to do what you're passionate about because you won't get looked at to. Become an astronaut until you're in your late twenties, early thirties. So go and enjoy your life going forward that path that you want to do. So this is about the journey to becoming an astronaut, but I presume if you want to become an astronaut, there is an element of making sure you're in good physical fitness because they they want someone that's going to be able to be fit enough to go into space and presumably you've always been into fitness.

"Like to have a to comical award in two years is relatively fast compared to a lot of businesses just even that even if you were to start from that date until now. And didn't know that it was even faster because of. The the delays in certain things from the time he actually launched. That's insane. It's insane. Tim It's awesome. It's because you put in the work and I and I love seeing stories like you're because those who actually we we always say do what Russell says and heading the work and listen to the people that know listen to the experts that know and actually do the work, but it sounds cliche that's cute. Do Russell. Says that ended up but those who actually do it? I've been I've been in the position as a one frontal away manager for two years now since we launched challenge and I see. That time and again, those who literally do the steps it's not just a cute phrase. WanNa do the steps for the ones who see the most success and you've been doing by reading expert secrets by taking the training course one way, and then obviously continuing on your journey how did you come across the ones on away because you call you know you said you had expert secrets, you're reading and so forth. But you know a short time later you came across one frontal away challenge. Can you tell us how you came across it and what made you decide to want to take the one funnel away challenge? Yeah. So I launched my first product and it was just a cheap twenty, seven dollar product just to to get going to start to build my email list and which by the way has been the key to so much success. It's it's an amazing. Building. Emails but I started to get emails about the one funnel away challenge in the spring of Twenty nineteen and. When I saw the thirty day aspect to a thirty day challenge in that there were videos to watch every day and then exercises to complete every day. I thought you know that's perfect for me because I'm such a deadline kind of guy you know like when I went to university, it was always the work would get done because of the deadline you know the the night before the exam and that's unfortunately the way that I am. But I think a lot of people are like that too but having the deadline every day and the videos go away. So if you don't watch them, YOU'RE GONNA lose them and that sense of urgency onto the the timeline of it I thought. Wow, this is so perfect for me. So I took it and I really threw myself at the training. I've found it to be especially the fact that there are three different speakers. Russell and Julie and Steve and the three combines just really drive the point home for the the one lesson that's being taught on that day. I'll tell you the one challenge was a serious. Tipping Point for my business especially in the area of offer creation. And and you mentioned the tipping point in the offer creation I that's one thing. Tim is when we see especially people with pre existing businesses or who have had experience with business that the come into the the challenge might be a very experienced business owner. And they come in there and they have this pre existing business and they're just trying to figure this out but the offer creation is his seems to be one of those like. 'cause they've never really thought of business that way, but it makes total sense. It's just like it completely is a game changer now. Go. Tell us a little bit more about that if you could elaborate a tad more on in regards to how that was the tipping point how offer creation actually impacted Your Business? Yes. So at that time, I was in the process of planning my very first masterclass with a Webinar to go with it, and of course, we know there's usually the structure is you're GonNa, have a masterclass and then abundance law for like a stack and determining what those stack items were going to be was what was so eye-opening when I saw Rossall sitting there in his yellow shirt and his white ord and the cameras looking down on the Whiteboard as he's writing away and he divided it all. Up Okay, video assets that you can create, and then you've got audio assets that you can create. Then you've got a written assets that you can create PDF's, and then it was kind of like Whoa. The light turned on for me because previously I didn't think I even had anything to offer when it came to creating stack items, but then having it laid out in that way explained like that and the other really big thing is knowing that the way to create your stock items should be in alignment with what the objections of your customers are. So for example, in my industry, I teach photography I teach photographers, how to create award winning photos and create magazine quality photos. So if one objection is. I don't know how to use Photoshop I'm not technical. So then in the stack as one item, I had a beginner's photoshop course that would teach you how to use photoshop to edit your photos like right from the point of on your computer. So then I could overcome that objection and I created all of my stack items with that in mind to overcome an objection, and it's just like knocking over domino's and it worked. Totally, I know Steve was a huge. Like influence are in that regard of like finding the objections and that's what he was really good at it and I know a lot of people like yourself for like finding that it's like Oh. Okay. You're answering questions along the way through your offer. Your offer stack is answering the questions by the time they get to the end you know and it's like, oh, it's just one of those Aha moments. Now in the one frontal challenge ten, there's a lot of Aha moments for a lot of people and there's a lot of roadblocks as well. So I'd like to talk about both of those like outside of the offer creation. Did you have any other Aha moments like Oh, like one of those light bulb goes off during the ones challenge. Yeah it it really the huge Aha moment as well was regarding the foundation of Your Business and This was big for me and as a result of this whole thing that I learned, I actually created what I call the prelaunch game plan to help you launch your business. But here's here's the. You know if you think that you're building a house, what's the first thing you do before you build a house you dig a big hole, you survey everything out, and then you're going to pour a concrete foundation and then on top of that concrete foundation, you're going to build your walls and put your roof on, and if your concrete foundation is not level and it's not solid built on the Rock, then your house is going to come tumbling down and that's the.

So he's we had a great conversation he, of course, arrived in Nashville about thirty years. Ago I didn't know the whole story. It's almost too good to be true. You'll hear US talk about that. He got off a Greyhound bus and walked into a bar into started playing. It sounds like a country song on its own. His new album is called here on earth. We got together to talk about what it's like to put out music right now how do you put an album together? How do you get it out there? How do you promote it? Well, he do zoom apparently. Talk about the influence, his wife and fellow country superstar Faith Hill has had on him really interesting to hear him talk about how he does his best work after he comes off tour with her because faith is so good and such an elite singer in a different category that it pushes him and challenges, and he likes to put out his albums or at least start creating music. He's been on the road with her 'cause. She makes them better. He's also got three girls the last of whom the youngest of whom is about to go to college.

I I want to respect that And I understand that To me racing media solution that you know Ecuador was a spike that it was solved in the moment. I don't know what Akwa numbers are currently Saratoga numbers were not good last summer. For instance at the same different tracks same rating association. The ation Very good horses for the most part That are well cared for I to me. Racing needs a solution. That is longitudinal. The isn't an emergency answer to a single situation because those single situations will historically we've learned we'll probably continue to pop up Yep For whatever reason whether it's track conditions bad luck We've seen historically that these things do happen in clusters custer's than those clusters. Bring attention to the larger picture and I were again in that room with smart people trying to solve the over all problems. I would try to say. What can we do that? Creates no more spikes okay. What can we do that? That makes racing terrifically say for ten years down the road but at the same time I understand that we are not good as a cultural at thinking. Ten years down the road You know I use the again. I don't WanNa mention something that's political but just very briefly dipped my toe into it and say think in terms of something like global climate climate change but you can believe it or not believe in But you want wherever you stand on that and I think science is pretty compelling. It's hard to get people people to pay attention to it when it might disadvantage or inconvenience them in the present to convenience or help someone long after we're dead and that's a very hard way for people to think I think racing almost has to think that way too but the people that are very successful making in a lot of money and doing well in racing right now. Don't want change and I understand why they don't want change A lot of very disruptive in severe changes to the sport are going to affect people's lives in the short term tremendously. And you know the hope that I would have is that you you make radical change and then five ten fifteen twenty years from now racing looks very different but maybe healthier and safer But again that's a hard or someone in the President Who's maybe training Kentucky Derby winners swallow And I just I think that I think that the answer isn't is in emergency. Fire drills to put out fires that exist in the president is to think. How can we prevent fires lawyers from starting for the next generation or two? Well certainly certainly a reasonable thought process. There's an argument Tim. I if we turn the clock back fifty years to one thousand nine hundred seventy the lack of foresight then In terms of the wagering mechanisms and the landscape it could be argued that the lack of foresight then has caused a just a myriad of racing's current Malays Because the powers of the be at the time didn't understand what was going to happen in the away from you. Know the the wagering concept they just they absolutely you know. Missed that boat. And as Fred Pope famously has called it the inverted pyramid. You know this this this structure now the where you know. Money is siphoned off out of the out of the wagering dollars. That goes less to the bricks and mortar. And it's put this tremendous strain. It's created this artificial subsidy scenario from from the gaming and it's all very perilous and I think I think the you know some of the some of the inefficiency or or the paralysis comes from an already already precarious business model that that probably needed to be addressed thirty years ago or twenty years ago and wasn't so dealing with with this. You know what some people are calling an existential crisis. is is provoked a bit of a deer in the headlights response. I totally agree. And the business model you describe is just another one of the many ways in which the digital world disrupted the the analog along world and none I mean it's not most of those ways are not bad some art and I just think again you know I. I just go back to what you said earlier. I do love writing about racing and you know I find myself. I think like a lot of people do Frustrated that I can't do that anymore with with With a free heart. I guess I would say you know it just it just becomes challenging when everytime you write a story and this happened with football too and I've I've seen it happened with Olympic sports and and performance enhancing drugs. Where you're just you just have this that little devil on your shoulder saying right some qualifying sentences here you know you gotta be gotta be aware of the larger picture and you know where you have? Readers that have come into this world of understanding racing's current crisis and they expect they WANNA learn learn about it and they wanna know and so the sport has been made less fun to cover and for for very good reasons but anybody who covers it being honest with his own conscience is going to say that. That's a that's a sad and frustrating thing we all want to write happy stories about successful people expressing their joy and They have to do these. Other kind of story is part of the job in an important part of it but nobody gets up every morning to write about horses dying or Olympic athletes being busted for drugs or NFL players being drummed data game for concussions. You know it's Or having challenging life because of concussions they got no one wants to write those stories But those stories are there right now again I go back. I think racing might maybe they can. God maybe time just goes by and heal these wounds until the next one But yeah racing is a very complex industry in many ways more so than football more than even the Olympics which are extremely week convoluted and splintered as well. Well the the the the most frustrating part about the conversation here is we've spent you know he spent thirty minutes and it's largely been about and part of it of course was already going to be about what you wrote going in and that was you know that was a really at the heart of of are getting together because I thought it was so well done and so well framed and wove together other. You know so many of the elements that that make this complex From a from a from a more cheerful standpoint how did you hit Over the weekend I you know I I don't I don't Bet Steve You know right now I it's a it's a long story but I just I I bet a lot on racing when I was first covering it in the late seventies into the mid eighties and I was terrible well at it and it made me a journalist because I couldn't and my armageddon came when Kim Wilkin and I bet I think fifty or seventy five five bucks each to win on Polish navy in the nineteen eighty-seven travers and I think he went off at about six eight to one. And we were GONNA make a big score and he. He made a move to the lead on the rail at the quarter pole and then flattened out and finished fourth and I could barely tight my column because whatever I'd Bet seventy five to win or whatever I was by making one hundred fifty a week so I just kind of made a decision going forward that I was just going to. I wanted to getting any joy from from betting I it was just it was making me Was Affecting my writing and my journalism and my my attention to the to the to the facts at hand and I just thought it'd it'd be a better. It'd be a better fighter if I put my wallet in my pocket and I just stuck with that but but you know. The Breeders Cup was is just full of great stories. I mean you know. Seeing a two year old American Feral Coal Wind Up Cup race belvoir Bay winning the the the I think it was terp sprint right. After you know twenty three months after being lost in a fire I mean amazing stories and and you know watching Ricardo Santana's response when Donald Brothers interviewed him just literally crying thanking the people that that help them get onto the back of that horse. Breeders Cup was a great event and I. I just can't repeat enough that you know I was down near the winner's circle when when Vino role so came across the line and you know it was a wide open classic and it was cool to see a horse win from some people really love racing You know and and you know it was literally ten seconds. After he crossed the line at Somebody Jab in the ribs right there and said in nodded her chin up to the top of the stretch. Where you know or or you know between the core eightfold where Mongolian groom walk by just literally could feel my heart sink into my belly? They looked up there and you know not just because I had to rewrite a story but just because the whole thing flipped in that moment and you know it was a great great two days of racing and stories and just had a lousy ending. And that's you know that's been that really has been the driving theme that I think You know everybody is dealt with. And you know we've couched All the discussions Russians that way and it was fun to see how happy people were for two days and and that's the way it isn't any big racing day that's the people people win. People put so much time into their horses that when people win they cry. And you know that that doesn't happen everywhere everywhere and it's a very cool part of racing because you know and again that's where you know it. It's another it's another other. You know paradox here is that you can say well. How can we be crying about losing a few horses when we eat animals and this there's an industry that employs thousands of people? But then you watch the way a groom tweets that horse. Well that groom is not tweeting that like an animal. That's going to be eaten and I'm sorry to be harsh with that language. But there's a connection there between humans and animals that it's very real and it runs counter to the argument that there's acceptable losses somewhere. And you know I keep coming back there. See but it's just it's a super super complex topic to me. NO DOUBT IF WE WANNA if you WANNA have that have that portion of conversation. Asian I mean I would I would counter and say that especially living where where we live in Washington county which is the first or second most Agricultural and Rural County in New York state and I went to colgate and worked in the on farm news for the United Daily Dispatch Madison County which is Madison County's counties the number one dairy producing county in the state and Washington counties number. Two all you have to do is go to go to the county. Fair are and watch four H. Kids. FFA kids that are raising that are raising calves and raising all American uh-huh livestock. They know where that where that animal's going and I'm I'm I'm if I bristle at at at times about this Tim It's because there's there's a group of people here who are so far removed at this point. I mean this is like Zieger and Evans like like twenty five twenty five you got people that are so far removed from practical life that that they are going to sit in judgment of of people who are not afraid to lose a horse over the course of engaging in what is bred to do and I and I at the heart of all of this to me is. There's a group of people who are are afraid of what the horse racing industry represents which is ultimate risk-takers and people who are not afraid to feel the emotion of the extreme stream highs and extreme lows they want to insulate themselves in a some kind of protective cocoon. And they're they're scared of people like us that are involved in this sport. I'm not saying that you're not right on a big chunk of that and and by the way I grew up in Washington Austin County and white. So that's right. You know to tell you I. I play football and basketball with kids who had been awake for five hours before they went to school..
