"tonys" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"But Dan! Patrick was someone who was in the cool table. And Chris was not in the cool table, so Chris didn't get the opportunity to interact with him, so this was later on. After the dinner was done, there was music playing. Everyone's just kind of hanging out mingling whatever. Me and my wife went to the back bar. Which is where Dan Patrick was talking to you know someone that used to work with the collie whoever was right of Fort Macaulay? And we were just you know getting drink by the bar, but we were standing. There I wasn't gonNA. Bother Dan Patrick I don't need to say Hey Dan Patrick I'm bill. I'm produced for whatever right it's just I I would be awkward. Doing that I didn't want to do that. Lo and behold moments later Chris, and Anthony for the first time in the night show interest. Interest in speaking to me and are talking to me and my wife and I immediately realize after a couple like you know just small talk pleasantries that they're not even looking at US while they're talking to us. They're looking behind me, so I realized what's going on here. They're just trying to find a way to get to Dan Patrick so I. Tell Chris I go. It 'cause he's like I. Just want to talk the Dan. Patrick whatever how do you think? If you really want to get in with Patrick, or you want to have like an epic moment, you should do a shot with him and the perfect way to get him to Jewish shot. It isn't going to be hey I'm Chris. Cody I wanted to a shot what you need to do. Is You need to go get Stugatz and you need to get him to come to the bar because Dan Patrick. Show Stu because God's will not take no for an answer, and they'll just order a thousand shot just. Doing we're doing a shot. Yes, exactly so you need to go get guys and then put him into doing because we'll do a show with Dan. Patrick, for the story, also so they went, and they got through the come over, and then they got the shot situation to happen where they're handing it out to everyone damp. And then they did not leave Dan Patrick side for oh minute I juggled for him. I I'm a juggling juggling. For passing I forgot about that. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Yes, you. You got to the point where you were such a hanger on that you had run like at what point does the juggling skill of this forty five minute? This can't be right off the top right. This isn't your first like. Were you running out of material? How did the juggling about? I think there was like a bowl? You know decorative. So I was just like. I just have to start juggling balls with one hand, and I'm just like you know. Casually does I just started juggling balls. To jump in on what Billy said though what we did, we use billy as a lily pad. That's called Lily. Pad Technique where we jumped to billy, and we were like all right, we gotta get over to Dan Patrick and then we always a great show. We got everybody involved. It was great so speaking of this shot. What was it that you felt was worthy of handing Dan Patrick? It was Tequila. With each other, no, there was no line. It was a shot of embarrassment as I. Let me let me ask you this. This story I don't care about I'm wondering Tony at some point? Did you see Chris Starting to Juggle in? Did you stay with the Juggling Exhibition that was going on with Dan Patrick, Dan labradors wedding, or did you slowly remove yourself kind of like homer Simpson back in the hedges in that mean. So Chris and I are standing next to each other words tag team. Do in this venture of going to talk the Dan Patrick so as we're talking to them. We're kind of Chit, chat and back and forth STU stugatz his. There were making fun, and then I see Chris starting to run out of material and that's when he starts glancing overseas a couple oranges. I can go over here and hey Dan. Patrick look good I can do at that point. I start kind of like moving away and guts and I start walking towards something else so at one point. It's Chris and Dan Patrick side-by-side him juggling and. You're just watching him juggle for parents second. He impressed. He was impressed in defense. If I remember correctly one, it didn't go well because he had just taken a shot, and that was not his only alcoholic consumption of the night and. If I remember correctly Dan Patrick seem to enjoy it. He seems to be amused and I think that others may have also tried to juggle after Kris did so unsuccessfully. I think Dan is off the air now right now. Can we I mean we've got forty five minutes and make this habit. It's a big ask. I almost feel like at some point. I'm I'll textbooks Lovin? That's my only connection to that. I feel like we need to see if someone asked Dan Patrick. Would he remember someone one Chris? Cody actually juggling at said wedding under percent. He would hundred percent. He would so. So I have another thing too that he might remember because I have a very distinct haircut when I do get my haircut obviously during the nineteen, we've been having a little bit more of a difficulty with the haircuts, but what I do is basically I keep my hair long on the sides, and then I have a short on the on the on the bottom. So at that point Dan Patrick, said look at this guy's hair. You guys let him do this. So I think that might trigger his memory a little bit more so than the Juggling, okay I just love that the first cody. In one hand and juggling that. Story looking at fest with I think, and if I can remember correctly in this is hazy, and all of the Oh, I'm going to find this video of me Juggling for Dan Patrick, and I it's on video. It's. On video. I was like honey. Get this get this. Oh! We're taking a break. Find the video. This needs to be out on the lebatardshow twitter account that has happening right now. Yes, why did your wife say? Did. You say honey. Get this and you made her film. She generally embarrassed by me in public events like that. Okay, just as long as we're all hunting pit video out. To Juggle for Dan Patrick at Dan lebatardshow wedding, and the only thing sadder than that is the fact that your wife at some point goes. Okay, Sweetie. I will do that. Thank you. Chris Content Katie George. I don't know where the hell we're going next year on the Dan.

"Riedel in the morning Michael I'm such a fan of this guy our next guest is Nathan lane you know he's won three Tonys but just my goodness incredible the producers you saman bird cage Michael I guess it's fair to say you know Broadway I he's got to be considered one of the all time greats oh my god I mean one of the great moments in my feet are going life was why was right out of college my first job was a little magazine called theater week and one of the very first place I had the cover was Terrence McNally who sadly we lost to the coronaviruses play called the Lisbon traviata about an opera lovers kind of a a lonely depressed guy anyway and there was this guy never heard before name Nathan Layne plane the opera lover and he was by turns hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time and I think I have seen every single performance he's given and I can honestly say he delivers a hundred and ten percent Nathan lane has never given a bad performance so welcome to the program our friend Nathan lane good morning Nathan wait a minute let I wanna check this connection is this Michael Reese very good while I hate you've never been to our feet Michael what do you why then why it's only the second day did not reveal is well known for being a thorn in the side of P. one Broadway has he ever been not a solar for both older very pointed boulder all you know well it either one day it could be rocky in the next everyone talking get sick not not me more this is this is one of my favorite moments the land so when Nathan was in The Addams Family which it adds a little bit of trouble there and I probably wasn't the kindest critic of The Addams Family I wrote something and I get an email from Nathan and it came around Christmas time and he is what he wrote I just found it I pray that I'm Christmas Eve you will be visited by three spirits and that by Christmas morning you will be a changed man or maybe you'll just be visited by three teamsters who will beat the spirit of Christmas in the U. hello and Marie how you holding up Nathan are you a self quarantining did need need some toilet paper that we get to where now I now know where out in and out of the Hamptons real in our house out here yeah citing it out with the highly entitled for toilet paper and the expanding the economic screen okay I mean it you know like everyone we're we're making the best of it obviously if the scary surreal crime in the difficult part is that we don't know what the end of this movie Americans aren't known for their patients so I I you know I think it is good it just it's going to take a lot longer than we would like it and but you know we'll and we don't have to work together we know that they were not known for we have to get up and try to help each other and so I I look I like to try to remain positive I think we all commodities stronger for it and and but it's yeah this is a difficult time we've never been through anything like this I like to have Broadway people such as yourself on on anything because Broadway shut down in but frankly we don't know when it's going to reopen but just want to remind people how important Broadway is to the city I mean to its cultural life but also its economic life are you in touch with a lot of your Broadway friends I know successful people you can whether it but I think that like a lot of the kids in the chorus this is the first job on Broadway they don't have those kind of statements or resources I'm I'm concerned about them yeah well I yes everyone anyone is living paycheck to paycheck you're concerned about you are hoping that some of this government stimulus is going to people like that I I yeah I mean I I you know I haven't I've talked to some friends and it Sir yeah everyone is just so I'd look you know you look at the everyone is obviously a critical for the future and and that you know and then you A. you know look at this he is this young guy Nick Cordero what's it for but this is a you know it's just heartbreaking and excel I am you know I earn you know yours I'm sort of at a loss right you know you just you know you keep I keep making donations and I and you're trying to to do everything they've asked us to do which is to stay in the heart that and I you know I just think we all have to try to live by that I you know I'm I'm fearful of people opening up things too soon and then and then we'll be there to be hit with another wave of this so it it's typically believed I obviously also people have to make a living people are you struggling it it's it's really difficult and I think we're gonna have to figure out how to live with this I think for a while and and on some level I mean I don't know how we gather together in cedars court before I don't I just don't think people are what will want to do it and what is the backseat and and also will be a will people have disposable income to spend on Broadway shows all of that is going to take a very long time some of the great nation lane outer yeah well I'll bring you back up because we had a funny line from where I am with Nathan lane we had your costar from the producers Matthew Broderick last week he was telling us when you guys were trying out the producers in Chicago you're getting whole areas laughs and on stage during the show your turn to Matthews said you know it's not that fun and I he he he would often talk to me under his breath Matthew he would get out we he could sort of do a a running commentary on the play this call yes I know now when David producers who that was sort of a once in a lifetime experience your way I mean little if no one ever expected that kind of reaction it was sort of the zeitgeist six S. I think after so many heavy British musicals and this was a return to a very old fashioned musical comedy and absolutely at the end people it was sort of what people felt they needed them and it was hello guys yeah no one could have predicted that you know it's not the first preview was like that people went crazy and then I said I did say to Matthew let Clinton off Scot aged a bit like that it'll never be like that again these are diehard fans of that you know that the it's a cult will be it and then it was like that every night after this one remarkable say we gotta run but just one last thought this is going to be in a book that I'm working on that you kindly gave me an interview for a lot of lot of people don't know this land but some of the really good lines in the producers Nathan came up with and when you come up with a good line what did Mel used to yell at you he's he's to yell out something yeah no credit no loyalties no credit I don't read it yeah it was a very collaborative area I looked there was nothing better than it is to get out of being in a rehearsal room and and like improvising with knowledge coming up with things the lines are jokes and it it you know look at how we started in the in the city there are writers wrote and they'll do good to do that with them you know it was just one of the the great great highlights of my career Dan Dan and thirty our farm one of my fondest memory so much thanks I thank them for a few minutes stay well and we're thrilled to join us this morning to you so stay you will never you will never get a bad from breeding for me ever ever yeah holder thank you it happened at what age you know you want now I'd like to get all right stay right there I know Michael is super excited about this what Broadway smash is coming to your home via Disney plus this summer it's next W.

Has China lost Taiwan?
"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with

I mean sorry. They are winning. They're not upright but again I think what you're saying is the author outplaying what their actual numbers show in sports. So I think that this will finally catch up to itself and hopefully they will win the game Italy. Okay anything else that it Jeff. I'M GONNA do one more game like every every gambler on Saturday night after they look at their female for the weakness. Then you get out game and that get out game. It's going to be the last game of the day all army again. Y Army plus two and a half. I like Armenia. Even with the long on travel Hawaii a team. That has you know been up and down this year but armies We've talked about the armed services team. They're pretty solid. And I like like army Here I remember when Carville took army the first week and they almost one outright getting twenty seven points also want. You're the first first week.

He's a funny dude. LOVES TO GAMBLE. Chuck I mean so as a professional gambler like chuck. This is something that I have waited to talk about and I'm glad Santa's here because maybe you you are a better sense of this. I think Gary probably does I do. There's a big story in the paper today about sports books in Washington and somebody's somebody one British company I guess justice affiliating themselves with a soccer team. DC United and. And I don't I don't I don't understand the weeds of that but what I'm wondering about is sports sports betting I am not a better. I mean I've done it in my life. I don't do it even rarely it is so rare that it doesn't even qualify as rarely early. I know a little bit and probably could be a better but but I'm not I know thrill winning and I get angry when I lose. I'm just not good at that. Makes you a better well. Well but what I'm getting is is our our lives going to be changed by the availability of betting Steve. You're shaking your head. No which is sort of where I land people who will bet people who don't bet won't bet so they won't be attracted to betting you know. I don't think so well what it'll do is it'll make it easier and more or interactive for people who do like to gamble with the way technology works today. That's the way sports leisure looking at it. That's the way the PGA towards looking at it. They really want to get people to come to the golf course and gamble on things while they're there. What do you bet on in golf? Green or not making ten bucks says eats it. What's it going to be because everything will be available coming soon but I mean it's it's coming it's coming there's no you don't think that will reach out to do regular all sports fans say? Yeah I'M GONNA do. I think you're either a gambler or you're not. I don't think that people who don't gamble going to just a gambler you've been spending your money for years and years and years with a bookie who has given you credit for years. I agree with Steve In this regard. I don't know anyone who says yes. Well I would bet on sports but it's illegal I mean I think that hasn't been the hurdle that has kept people from gambling but I think there are people who haven't necessarily had exposure because it's illegal and once they get a taste it's going to be game. Yeah storefronts I think going to be I. I actually think there'll be more. I don't think people will be betting the Army Hawaii game when you're when you're sending any game game experience wizards game and I don't think this is that far away. So well attended a wizards game. So you're already alluring life on that front but you. You're sitting eating at a wizards game and there is a panel or something right there that you will order your food by and you can also go in game touchscreen. Yeah I think people would cause people like action action so Tony does it have to be in the in the arena. While you're watching you cannot any Leonsis. His vision. I mean it could be anything you could bet on the Lakers clippers game. But he wants you to be able to sit in your seat. Swipe your credit card on the one hundred bucks on it three bucks as Bradley Beal Hits a three before swish wish. Smith Hits a three for three to seven or whatever so there will be all of these. I'm not talking about profits. There would just be exotic wages on anything game so in yesterday it will it be limited to that game like or would you be on Tibet. Football from is going no limit on that. Why would they limit limiting? It would say we don't want as much of your money that you're willing to get a we are. We go to reopen debtor's prisons as people. Just go down the drain because they swipe their the card and they have no concept going. Don't people do that casinos. Currently I think you'll have credit card companies a bunch of debt. Because you've got people who that which taping it won't be will be more powerful and have a more profound change on the population. The legalization gambling legalization of marijuana gambling. We'll have a larger effect using gambling. Yes gambling I just think I disagree. I'm grading gambling. I would've been sue the. NFL was predicated located on gambling. kickoffs for from four to four zero five and then some of them are four twenty. Nobody's been taught to say no to gambling. Somebody's somebody's sitting in good seats at a wizards game. WHO's not a gambler? Is this going to swipe his or her card. Give a Hundred Vegas biggest twenty bucks on slots. They're sitting at the video Poker Wizards Gamini of good seats. You probably have some level disposable income so so rather than I mean what's another fifty bucks just to have some action on if it supervise. My point is if it's friction lists I think more people either way way more of a gateway than for instance marijuana's drugs so I'm saying there will be people who've never gambled and they'll say oh swipe it for ten bucks a game funds. My point is I don't think a lot of people are gonNA to go to a book right parliament betting I wanna like. That's what they're banking on the accessibility. I mean that is the whole reason. They're for a big tall shiny buildings with gold windows. They always win people. Continue to gamble.
