Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg Quick take powered by more than 2700, journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Susanna Palmer, this is Bloomberg. You're listening to Bloomberg, BusinessWeek with Carol Master and Jason Kelly from Bloomberg Radio. Tom Barrack. That's a familiar voice to our audience is Jason. He built as you know, so well Colony capital by buying distressed assets. Much during each and every crisis over the past 30 years, But during the current downturn, you know what he's doing. He's actually selling brick and mortar properties as they look to reshape their portfolio really focused on what they're calling digital infrastructure. So this was sort of a big moment for many reasons, Carol because I actually saw Tom Barrack in the flesh in New York City, him and his new CEO. Mark Ganzi. They came to New York We went to their office is socially distance for a wide ranging interview. Have the pandemic. It is accelerating So much of what's happening in and already disrupted real estate world. Check it out. What? Think we're in transition. And As the engineers and the builders of this infrastructure. We see where the traffic's going because once again we're entrusted with that information and What I would tell you today is a CZ from a network perspective for digital perspective. Workloads are shifting from the urban core active the suppers. In a pace that we've never seen in three decades. And what I mean by that is the proliferation of network infrastructure is more prominent in the suburbs and is in the urban court today. Data centers are now being built Jason on the edge. We're now fighting to deploy infrastructure or build that next generation of real estate on the edge, which is happening in smaller cities. Or people have moved. My belief is some of this is somewhat overblown. I think people will come back to the urban core urban cores where really from a from a social perspective, and from a cultural perspective, that is where people like to be. They won't entertain themselves. So I don't view this is being binary. In terms of you know, nobody coming back to New York City or nobody going back to Los Angeles or Miami. People will come back when they feel confident. They feel confident that there's a good vaccine and that they ultimately feel like that there's a good cure. But in the meantime, the activity in the suburbs which was largely neglected from a digital perspective. Is where we're spending all of our time. And so, Tom, What do you make of that is someone who's been looking at real estate and it's The buying and selling of it. The consumption of it the creation of it. I mean, is this a Is this a catalytic or Moment or an inflection point that we will look back on and say our cities were changed. Our lives were changed. I don't think so. I'm long New York City. By the way, if you're asking me if I go back with my distress had on the first place I would be is here. The last place I would be in the other end of the transportation, right? What's happened is great. Great places to live around New York City have grown from Where does the train And the subway go. And that was the key consideration. I could buy a place. Granted to the $1000 a foot versus a cooperate condo in Manhattan at 4000 Ft. And I can commute back and forth. And subway train. I think young people I'm going to get very tired of the suburbs very quickly. The financial engines will exist in places like New York, London, Paris. Los Angeles that again it's just a neck seller. People here were already thinking of moving to Florida with confiscatory tax regime and a political situation which they weren't happy with whether the mayor is doing a good job of a bad job. It was perceived that It's um It's not working. You have an infrastructure here. People are worried about building a brand new condo or coop. Streets are falling apart of the subway doesn't work. The bridges and tunnels are 100 years old. It's just accelerating. Everybody's thought and saying You know what? This is this is frightened me. Life is short. I want to enjoy my kids because of the digital frontier. I have other opportunities to do, and I want to be where I don't feel the pressure of this. This epidemic every time I touch an elevator. My belief is that will vanish. That will go away the aftermath after this election cycle, whatever that is. Will will start to dissipate with with a vaccine with a cure, and I always ask. My friends are so great a vaccine you could take one. Have him say Never. Right, right. So I think cities they're here to stay suburbs or here's the utilization of them is going to be different. And in it and a replicated Bill way, it's impossible to replicate New York City, and that's Tom Merrick, the executive chairman of Colony Capital, the founder, arguably one of the best known voices in real estate alongside Mark Ganzi. He's the CEO of Colony Capital. As of July, 1st. Listen. This is a seminal moment an inflection point in many ways, handing over the reins but also an entirely new strategy that they put in place actually before Copan 19 Carol, But it is all accelerating during this pandemic. Well, just interesting right that he's normally a buyer during times of downturns and crises, and now he's actually doing some selling. So yet talk about pivots. During Cove in 19. You're listening to Bloomberg. BusinessWeek coming up. While colony like so many other companies are pivoting As a result of the pandemic. Many of us have been turning to our pets for companionship and fun. Well working from home, Jason Turns out it's part of a pet boom that's resulted in about two thirds of the country now owning a pet everyone, But you apparently more coming up on that. Yeah, apparently, when.

fifteen political opponents in nineteen eighty two president desi bow to say is currently in China on an official visit so we'll have two weeks to appeal I had more about the case from America's editor Leonardo Russia he at the time was in charge of the military Johnta that had taken over now with their in the these fifteen people were political prisoners including union leaders journalists if they were in a colonia we a fortress in the capital Paramaribo in they were killed what the court found after twelve years of trial has lasted for twelve years is that the he planned and organized the extra judicial execution of those people what Mr bounce as he has said in the past is that these people were trying to escape and they were shot by the army there so he basically denies the the charges it is pretty extraordinary that a president is given twenty is in jail for murder he's in China at the moment what's been the reaction the the timing is is quite interesting because he's in China is is that why we have this this really now we don't know I mean this allegations go back to nineteen eighty two there was a huge outcry the Netherlands while the former colonial power at the time made a big noise about that and now he's in China so what his lawyer said there's no official reaction but what his lawyer said is that he's going back to Suriname the south American next week and that he is going to appeal against the decision he seventy four we don't know how powerful he will be if the court will be able to basically to execute the center so he's going to to serve time in

reflected online on digital maps as in Russia in recent months is enacted in you know this man this it's forced the tech companies to change the way they portray Crimea so after months of discussions with apple for example if you now go in search apple maps apple whether through that it shows crime is being parts of Russia Russian territory it only does so that if you are searching within Russia itself if you're searching from the rest of the world and it shows it is being attached to any part of any country Google for example did the same thing back in March it shows that it's part of Russian territory if it's in Russia he search outside of Russia and it shows it with disputed borders between the two well who's news on apple maps and also is whether that's caused huge controversy a

Pulitzer Prize this year for his reporting on modern day red lining his new book home wreckers comes out today it's great to have you with us are and what an amazing book just lay out what you found well first of all I wanted to know eight million Americans lost their homes in the Great Recession but they didn't just disappear right so we live now in a society where the wealth gap between the richest one tenth of one percent and the other ninety percent is bigger than it's been in a hundred years and so much of Americans wealth is in their homes because we have very few other ways to save so I want to know what happened to these houses who profited off this mess and that trail led me to a number of people who were in Donald trump's inner circle Sir talk about them and talk about how they benefited well we start with the crash itself and the failure of the banks when all of these bad loans came due and there was massive for closures we the taxpayers the government subsidized those foreclosures and there were a lot of people who lost money during that time but there were also people who bet on these failed banks and receive government support to four close and that included as you mentioned Steve minu chin who's now our treasury secretary he and his group of other investors including George Soros John Paul St Michael dell the founder of dell computer came in and bought IndyMac bank which was this form failed Pasadena California bank and then proceeded to foreclose on over a hundred thousand families including twenty three thousand seniors now under the deal that he made with the government to acquire this bank which the government owned because it failed he had his investors paid the government nothing and then although he invested some of his own money in the bank we then paid him to subsidize his foreclosures and document that I obtained under the freedom of information act show that we paid his group more than a billion dollars and Wilbur Ross the commerce secretary had a similar deal at bank United which was another fail bank in Florida and of course in the mac as as you show in your book was really the first major banks to collapse then and a whole bunch of a series of one this happened in two thousand eight and it was basically based on a lot of is a fraudulent a predatory lending if you could talk about that as well there were a lot of predatory loans going around in the housing bubble and at this point we all know that what I wanted to know was when they were families who got the so called ninja loans right now income no job no assets no problem or these loans that have these teaser rates and then reset at a higher level and you were told you can just refinance or the main character in my book sandy jolly whose family owned their home outside of Los Angeles for more than thirty years until they got a reverse mortgage that sap their equity and all of these families lost their homes to foreclosure what I want to know was what happened after right we've been stuck in this country on this trauma of two thousand seven two thousand eight two thousand nine but now here we are in two thousand nineteen ten years have passed the unemployment rate is low the president tells us everything is great but people don't feel like everything is great so you know we have jobs but what happened to our wealth they took it that's what happened and also the the disproportionate impact that this loss of equity in all these homes had especially on the African American and Latino communities which will be even more dependent on home equity for that what little wealth they had a net or net wealth to hatch what we see is that banks like Steve man who can spank concentrated therefore closures in communities of color and then when they started making loans again when the economy improved they didn't make loans to those communities so they wiped out the wealth of these communities with for closure but then over a five year period Steve mentions bank made three loans to help African Americans buy homes and a Levin loans this is a National Bank help three African Americans and eleven Latinos by homes over five years and now Steve nutrition as the treasury secretary is in charging a charge of regulating every American bank and so he and Donald Trump picked one of his deputies at one west bank Joseph fighting for this position called the comptroller of the currency which basically is America's top bank cop who's in charge of enforcing laws like the community reinvestment act that are meant to stop redlining so this bank which didn't make any loans hardly any to communities of color is now in charge you know this leadership under president trump of making sure that these anti redlining laws are followed and it's it's seems to me is not just the trump administration because it was under the Obama administration that was supposed to be some efforts to help homeowners stay in their homes and in fact only I'm Castro now presidential candidate was at heart supposedly in charge of the efforts to assist homeowners and that's come under heavy criticism what was what the Obama administration did to help these homeowners this book you know some people say it's an anti trump book because it as Donald Trump on the cover holding wads of cash with Steve neutral riding on a wrecking ball and you know Wilbur Ross pulling money out of the house but all of this activity happen as you mention when Barack Obama was the president the homeownership rate in America this is what we got me started on this book I started working on this book is investigative book it took years to write I I started working on in twenty sixteen what I didn't know who the new president was going to be but I noticed that the E. homeownership rate in this country instead of going up during the economic recovery it kept going down it went down in two thousand twelve he went down in two thousand thirteen fourteen fifteen and sixteen until two thousand sixteen it bottomed out at its lowest rate in over fifty years and so that's when I started asking the question who profited under Obama tell us more about Tom Barrick and Steve Schwarzman from their relationship with trump and what they did so Tom Merrick is Donald trump's oldest friend closest friend introduced a bunker at the Republican National Convention planned the inauguration for Donald Trump Steve Schwarzman another old from friend according to media reports still has the president on speed dial now we've been talking about the foreclosures who bought those foreclosures we have seen a massive transfer wealth as I mentioned not from you know one group of families who got for close to another group of families were able to buy homes but we now have three million homes in this country that are owned by L. L. C. L. P. and L. L. P. shell companies and some of the largest buyers of these homes were these private equity funds run by Tom Berwick and Steve Schwarzman so there's not a company called invitation homes which was founded by Blackstone Steve Schwarzman company owns eighty thousand homes across more than a dozen states and it's a private it's a public contracting company now they have their IPO so you can track the track very clearly their rent increases the relatively small amount of money spent on maintenance and also importantly because these people are leveraged buyout kings they have been taking these homes and bundling them into this new type of mortgage backed security taking on a ton of debt so for example I mentioned earlier sandy trolley this long time homeowner in Los Angeles area whose family owned their home for more than thirty years before they were foreclosed on by Steve Nugent's bank now that home is part of a nine hundred sixty million dollar mortgage backed security bundled with thousands of other home so if you go and look at the property record you don't see like a twenty thousand dollar home equity line of credit to remodel the kitchen you see and nine hundred sixty million dollar lean on the house taken out by a private equity we're gonna break and then come back to this discussion Erin glances are gassed he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist last year his new book out today home wreckers how a gang of Wall Street king pens hedge fund magnate scripted banks and vulture capitalists suckered millions out of their homes and demolish the American train stay with us this this is democracy.

"tom merrick" Discussed on WJR 760
"Every day this is the inside outside guys on WJR your Chuck and can welcome back everybody we appreciate your being with us we appreciate you tuning in to educate yourself with us regarding rocks we got mark on a later from the rock shop here in we we kind of left off with some teasers having to do with retaining walls and and patios made out of rocks and bricks yeah mark on Elena been doing this for forty years I when it comes to hardscape and landscape I can't think of anyone else in southeast Michigan that tell you she turned to no I agree so so what are some common mistakes people might make with with retaining walls or or even you know stone patios and greater brick patios I'm great well the the most common mistake is the the base the base isn't proper not enough for the wrong material so that's that's the drainage and the rate base is most important you don't just take a whole bunch of sand down level it off like they show you on TV a lot of guys would like to do that we're not trying to sell you more stuff we want to have a successful project about have fall over easier to do it right the first I've been to fix it the second area right because so many people could put the wrong basin or not enough space in and I'm gonna put example you may get a couple prices one maybe twenty thousand one maybe ten they could both when they're done with that job when they leave that job to look perfect both of them but when you get the wrong based not enough space you may be read re doing that not even five years later exactly that's why that's so important so what's the rate base well underneath the retaining wall we recommend half inch clean wash limestone about six inches of that and it has to be a little bit wider than the block because that's another mistake often made as they make it too short too small not wide enough in the edge of the block is like on the edge of a mountain it it just falls on tips over so that's important and back filled with crushed stone again with washed crushed stone is the the stuff no why is washed SO import washed lets the water go through and there's no old sands it is out the filters is say and lastly a man they're coming through the cracks of the from your wall gotcha let me explain a little bit when they crushed concrete or they crushed limestone obvious is a lot of power that goes along with that sometimes they shipped that as the Phil but when the water goes through the papers which will do if there's a lot of that power to render it'll just make mock under the papers that you can't see things act then it freezes it expands and limits the life of your of your patio if you have a clean limestone that water is going to go straight through exactly and a homeowner would never know that no it's a newer technology it's not they always call is so something that you guys are still not used to doing there you still going the old school way that's what's known as a good drainage base actually a permeable base now if I'm doing a I DO my backyard like most people in southeast Michigan it's clay it's all clay how much would you like to see that contractor go down I'm gonna want to have a least six to eight inches of material under my paper and the paper is going to be two three inches thick okay so you got to take down a bit or you have to relate raise your patio which is awesome to you below wall around it you know like on the back of your house you instead of going out you know step steps on your patio you step up your patio not sure which is even better same base underneath that same base that's even better because the drainage is now easier to get the water out and catch up all American sand if I get a brand new patio do I want polymeric sand yeah it's scary because I mean you know Palmer exam is a great product but it has to be done properly and I've seen some horror stories of either bad Tom Merrick St cheap Palmer St we're just not installed right where it turns a haze and makes it all white math gap up there and it's awful so for people don't know polymeric sand I mean you guys got all sorts of boxing and yet or a book material Apollo Merrick stand is a Sam with an added ten exactly Kay in the additive when it's sprayed makes that stand get hard and flexible at the same time exact that is that very hard hard when it's dry but when it's wet you can't turns like a rubbery material is excellent it's great except to use at the make sure you get it clean we let dries and and you're absolutely right when you're saying good polymeric sand like anything else the good stuff costs low that more people are afraid to buy it but the the cheap stuff will wash away a lot faster and allow that moisture and says Palmer exam so they know it's not all equal right are their mistakes people make in in applying it yes yes well the the the main the main mistake is not getting it rinsed off it with a little bit a residue left wonder watering it they'll get like puddles of muddy looking material on the papers and then they don't rinse it off and it dries on there and you're not get that off then it's too late it's done so the most common mistake with that it is people just don't rinse it properly large rough yep yep the blow it off and then you have to miss that not but not too much it's a little tricky and all so once that the papers came in which I say twenty well thirty forty years ago yeah it spurred another industry which was paper maintenance because there is a P. remain it's out there if I come to you Helen I'm works like this you if I come to the shop I assume I okay and I bring a picture every time I've come of always seeing you but I bring a picture of a a patio that some can you tell me or as a homeowner what I need to buy and help me get through that with the Steelers remain sealer is on the sands the base anything I need you you'll tell me what I need to finish or to take that job yeah you know and it's like sealers aren't always like let's let's do that because it does create maintenance for the pair yeah you know and so unless they do want that little bit saw nicer color you know we have a different dealers super gloss gloss or or more natural you know matted color finish yeah it's nice you recommend are you have a skill that Chuck I love the VAX kind yeah what a great product there really isn't a great product both the we use that for years one thing we like about it is it doesn't create the yellowing the old ones did or the ground ambulance double non non film forming a very important yes how big a service area it does the rock show cover where twelve acres of property and nods follow up we take up the entire corner it's like a rock island over there we're on the southwest corner of north territorial got parts and and it's it's it's a jam it's a they the garden art is amazing it is you know dinosaurs so what if somebody listening to us today has a place up north that they would love to see your product in neighboring it really that we are far north where where in Michigan and we don't go across the bridge but everyone Michigan southern Michigan yeah that's a challenge that's a big challenge across the bridge will figure out how to get there and bring it to a yeah your garden or did you have there is absolutely gorgeous and and one of things why say shop where the pro shop and you guys have I'm gonna see hundreds of contractors let landscape contractors to have a great base there and we love home owners to you know it's just that we've always been in the residential home improvements and worked a lot with the homeowners and different businesses we've had I've always been service industry so you know they come in and and so it's a fun time can you help people you know the Zen garden is a big thing right create a call yeah bottom meditation can you help people design issues with that definitely yeah everybody has their own idea that we have the right materials for that then guard and we have all these decomposed granite is a real big saw we bring out all over the state different really fine crushed and walking paths list which is is an gardens like that yes so we have different

"The way this works the most boring thirty seconds of my program in the last three years the use that were a problem I'm assuming that was the most boring thirty seconds of that podcast because it was the best of my goodness he's talking about thirty W. Y. S. and mark Belling late afternoons show up there's an interesting development on the whole scooter story we're talking about did a segment of the scooters earlier in the program Tom Merrick came out this afternoon and by the standards a Tom Barrett was furious he's threatening to pull the plug on the whole program now again for those of you not following this closely only one company is in town right now was scooters it's live it's not bird that would birds critters that live scooters and it's a trial at trial program to see if we can make this work and when the scooters came out the mayor made it clear what the rules of the road where the scooters have to drive go on the road and when you're done with them they have to be left outside the right away you can just lay them on the street you can't just lay on the sidewalk and you've got to follow the traffic laws since this is happened pretty much everyone is aware of what's happened here the scooters or ride around all over the place to go in the wrong way on streets and in some cases there on sidewalks and when they're done with them they just leave out the side of the road were sleeping in the middle of the sidewalk my guess is based on the way the mayor reacted that the set mayor's office is getting a Tanaka plates and I commented on the program it struck me that threat is many people riding the scooters of late anyway Berit came out today and said look you people that are riding this if you don't start following the rules I'm gonna cancel the program now the company involved lie and can't make people follow the rules he said there's no riding on sidewalks and if you're on the road you're riding with the traffic that is freaky seeing somebody coming right at you the wrong way you can't do that now I know why some of the scooter riders are writing with the traffic of why they're not on the road their freight it's scary of course it's scary you're all by yourself you're not wearing a helmet you're on a tiny little blade our streets are narrow this parked cars over here it's sometimes as railroad tracks in the middle these bikes out there as well you want to have to see if you're a bit on the sidewalk botched the sidewalks and set up the people that are mad skit motorized scooters going seventy miles an hour we have people walking the streets have dog walkers have elderly the sidewalks are for that you got to be on the road if you don't want to be on the road but don't write the stupid scooter I've said a number of times that there if if we had any sanity in the city then what about a way to do this and that would have been a set up the streets properly so that they'd be a specific lane for the scooters but that would have meant not putting the railroad tracks all over the place it would've been focusing on something that might have a thing but everybody's yell at the mayor here and this is only with one company and wait until there's a whole bunch of them people are complaining about the things laid around all over the place sometimes the scooters it literally being left on the side of the road bicyclists are belly aching about it they're bright you're breaking all of a sudden here's a scooter that's led around out there this is got to be get a lot of complaint because to get past it out of time parent that something not limited to the story this is Charlotte again you may recall the story were a stinker current insurer would which is been beset with allegations of racism all year this is the intermediate school a physical education teacher she's apparently been there for a long long time several decades in one of the drills where she was encouraging kids to exercise and dance and so on she said some African American kids you want to go back and research the kinds of exercises the kids they had in the past that America and included do what Slade kids debt there's no doubt in my mind the teacher didn't mean any harm she was immediately accused of racism parents complained the school district started to apologize out the why do this is the same school district the cable and some students complained about the performance of the plate to kill a mocking bird the whole point of that play was to be anti racist but the N. word is used in the play how else could you depict racism other than to have people acting races sure would cancel the play apologize though the was it would now this situation I swear I will be the person does not know what they're supposed to say anymore we are told for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever that we are to either black heritage that we had a society that deal but I slaves it seems to be that this teacher was trying to humanize the slaves Hey these are people too they were having their fun this is what they were doing maybe you want to go and do what I would do anything at all touching the issue of slavery because it is such a hot button issue but there's no reason to believe that I'm not exactly Mr let's defend the public school teachers there's no reason to believe this feature bet anything that was harmful probably at our old way she stated that this is something that would actually allow these kids to celebrate who their ancestors might baby talking about how the kids plated so why he is not an endorsement of slavery was an endorsement of the poor kids and the fact that they had to live their lives as slaves if yet even match anything better yet instead of worrying about everybody's heritage intelligent exercise the way it into the eighteen hundred just go back to play you know play dodgeball or whatever but no way to politically correct there is the political correctness ends up coming back to bite the teacher in the **** but the story is resolved today what do you think sure would get teachers dot her career is over forced to resign I believe when we get the number of years I it is she was there an incredible number of years I've thirty seven years a thirty seven year career is ruined because a bunch of people get up and yell racism when there is no racism and does the school district habits well we do know now how to get a school teacher fired it is going to be for being a bad teacher it is gonna be per capita it is a kind of a particular zip get sick days when you're not sick it is going to be for politicizing a part of the classroom say something to get some people to allege that you're racist even if there's no racism toy yeah Dodd always happens in the communities the pride themselves on being I'm not being racist well the racist and they just pull.

It seems simple Tino look back on it. Of course it was not. I remember that the series of pretty vividly on I ninety six World Series. We played the Braves stadium and then that one of the new stadium and I've ever been a game. One over there was freezing, totally thirty degrees, and we all we also be very low scoring game. It was one of those days where it was. I mean really, really cold, and I think it was every every gave one of their jumped on early and got going in the thing about the World Series games when you can game one jump out like that and win on the road e- have some momentum especially going to game to pressure on the team and taking it back. You know, it's over that time. So, you know it was it seems simple. But it was tough game. One was huge for us. And we have two boys and also mentioned the American League championship series won the first game at old Yankee Stadium in ten innings won the second game three two at Yankee Stadium. Go to Fenway park and get waxed, thirteen to one and then come back the next day in win ninety two and six to one into divided. The Red Sox. It's not that easy. It's not. But everybody remembers Bernie Williams off rod Beck and game one of the American League championship series in the bottom of the tenth in Yankee Stadium. Yeah. What? It was like I said, you know, you know. Bernie always steps up in those situations. The right time. But yeah no, it was just a. We went one of eleven. Have you on for three twelve and one that posting I believe. Yeah. We around the table there in the World Series again like I said he went to games in Atlanta or anywhere on the road. And you go back to stadium that other team whoever it is coming to Yankee Stadium, down to oh, with our fans that stadium did it, man. We had it was like their play against fifty five thousand players at that time. It was impossible. Exactly. And in talking to the Braves guys who have who have become friends through the years of buying. They, they're going to go to their graves about ninety six about how upset they are. They felt that the to nothing lead, they should have closed it out. And they did not then really stuck in their car just like the sixty nine Baltimore Orioles with the Yankees. But the nineteen I've talked about the ninety nine World Series against the and they said clearly you guys with the better team. I mean with all due respect. The Braves hall of fame pitcher isn't Tipper Jones. Andrew del a great team and seeing our team was just the way it was we had to win games, especially the postseason with pitching and defense. We could win games two to one or three two and we could win games. You know, tend to seven whatever it may be. But it just seemed like that time, you know, we'd won two World Series already the majority of the guys were back still in that's in ninety nine and you know, getting that going into Atlanta for game one we, we had a better team but you still there and winning and winning on the road. Really puts the brazen. A huge hole to be in that World Series. It's been playing pressure on you and we played with no pressure at all we just so relaxed from game one and you know we the better team but I mean those teams Braves had were outstanding. They should apply. Want a couple of days as well against the Yankees in your opinion. And the Yankees with that sweep in their World Series winning streak to twelve with the sweep when are we going to see that again? And mo- Marianna Rivera was the World Series MVP to our calls for Tino Martinez on it, Randall's talking baseball. Here's Higham in Brooklyn. Hi, and welcome. Thank you for your call. Hey, I wanted to share the feeling that I had been ninety when you hit that grand slam the facade I was actually there that game it was an amazing amazing game. And one of the best I've been, I've been to and wanted to know your your take when you ran the basis. Yeah. Appreciate it very much every everywhere I go in New York. I get that same that same common people. The ninety eight grand slam. You know where they were sitting whether watching TV some people at a wedding, the wedding. The. Okay, great stories. But you know what? I really well. And you gone the moment I hit it. But when I was running the first base, it's hard to the feeling of hitting a grand slam the World Series. And the way the stadium was shaking fans were just so loud, you couldn't hear anything and it was like almost like running a little bit of a bluer, Brandon basis. Grand slam. The people go crazy. And then you touch home plate in the dugout you're like you just don't know what do you realize what just happened? Then you gotta go out there and play defense and keep the game going. But the rest of the game was like, you know, my, my I was so excited inside really just like a kid twelve years old. It's the same type of feeling when you're thirty years doing that in the World Series game seven runs onto swings. You and knob lock. Yeah. Yeah. Not like you know home it goes overlooked, but his game and was big home in there. When I came up those game and obviously head. But yeah, that I think he gave one that knocked the wind out of the Padres, right there again. That's worth about. Three more wins. I never get tired of watching the videotape of that grand slam of yours and watching, and I'm sure you've seen it and I laugh all the time, and I feel sorry for the people beneath, but that beer that went flying the upper downstairs. Run the first day. So the ball cabinet. I thought your flying stuff like wow. You know, I I. I'm like, oh, man. Missed it. But yeah, what I mean. Even when I got back in the dugout, you know, the fans are still going crazy in the dugout. You feel the rumble him Fadi them. It was incredible. And again, what a great moment that, I mean only the fans in New York that stadium can provide that kind of atmosphere. But how about the night in two thousand and three years later when you come back in with the Saint Louis cardinals and the fans give you a standing ovation in curtain call. Yes. Well that was self. Itself. I mean, I was at the two thousand one World Series dieback, I, I wanna play three more years, and I was hoping the keys and that didn't work out. And I tell you that, that also even weighed in a way to hope that they wouldn't signed. Yhombi Jami, those kind of contracts, snagging, whatever was and I waited too before. I even say anybody else that they wouldn't find him and I just about cry. The whole entire did not wanna play anywhere else or not. It was it was a bummer, but going to Saint Louis experience would be, you know, people they're great work, but that's. Tell me about to Yankee Stadium in the as an opponent. I didn't expect that. I didn't know what the schedule was in Italy play where. I've ever come back again. And the reception I got two three games was amazing. I just can't the fans enough for the, the love of give me from day one two times in Saint Louis. And to this day, it'll timers day it's the best deal in the world. You deserve it.
