We can only plan so far ahead and share on vacation for somebody ad global pandemic when they that is you know the time line like i think the world ended like two days after the sale went through and then like we were ready to announce the name in like march ten And then it got pushed back two months or whatever and it was. It's been a very interesting time to to start a franchise. that's for sure. Now the vegas excuse me. The las vegas raiders are a team. Now do you guys at the golden knights.

Sports in vegas is is is good for everybody you know only brings in fans And i think that It'll be great competition to see where it's going. But at the end of the day you know the golden knights sir vegas. Born and the raiders are. Og kind of young yogi. And you know what i think. Is that vegas all of the sudden here. I'm gonna give you a compliment as two of the coolest looking venues from the outside. Like the raiders. One is awesome with all the black glass. I don't know it looks like some sort of abstract art whereas t mobile which is a great venue owned by a great great company. Ag it looks like a big wooden salad bowl. And i like yeah. It's actually on. But it's the both very cool i that's what it looks like. Yeah i guess. That's true allegiance. Stadium the raiders. Play is kind of called the roomba around here Because from above it it looks a little room s but it is super cool super excited for the twenty thirty five stadium series game there between the canes and the nights that'll be a great time and maybe the h. l. teams complete as well the h.

"Is you're budding modeling career because you are one of the models of these jerseys that we've seen here on social media and i'm wondering you know how my former adult league hockey linemate is now modeling professional hockey jerseys. Yaginuma my agents Just knew that. I was in town. No yeah we you know. We haven't played any games yet. We don't have any assets to use graphics or anything so did you back. Let's just get went down. I really really wanted to do. The golden knights gold jersey photo shoots and i was all slotted into go and my art director just ripped and that away from me Like a day or two before we did the photo shoot he. You know. I think this other guy we worked with gordon. He just looks more like a hockey player. And that that hurt that build the build for you. Maybe isn't there but your model these nicely. But what are you five. Six five seven five pain. You're actually you are pretty taller than than it's all about. It's all about up perception right leg if we're the any size if in just in relation to the surrounding deconstruct look like your. Here's what i liked about. The modeling shoot. Is that some of the positioning like what he's taking the face off. It's not just taking the face off. He's got both gloves on like the. Yeah it's like quad jerus- taken a face off patrice berge rod. Take if you know. You're you're ready to win that face. You aren't there to take a picture of as you're there to win the face off. And i can appreciate that you know. I think that comes with I'm an absol- center. Played my whole life your practice of losing face offs. But you know my dad always said you gotta look good play good So i really feel like this. This photo shoot would sort of my calling now. The silver nights name that we have explored on this program multiple times. They decided that we don't need a dark jersey. We're gonna do the san antonio rampage stole their team and we are going to steal their style of having a great jersey and a white. When i saw the grade jersey. I is in gray for away. It's kind of like the. Mlb excited to see the black home jersey by that was the dark jersey and the white jersey is. That's interesting yeah you know. I think we wanted to do something a little different that you haven't seen before The rain in the goals were black. Stockton as a black jersey tucson has black actors see in a lot of teams to be playing where black so we wanted to kind of try something different out of the gate ninth grey You know like the kings wear grey at home. I think it. It's been proven that it works as a dark jersey. And i think the look gotta came together really nice with the sort of the tunnel grays and the vegas steel color in the shell and the black. I think it's a sharp. Look your guy who you look at the the little subtle features of these jerseys or anything that may be the naked. Pick up on that you really like. That's like one of those little cool features on these jerseys. Yeah i think there's a lot of details like that just in the logo like the floral patterns around the outside we call filagree and in the neck There's seven seven seven Stripes through the neck knows in other side of the neck in. There's twenty one rivets for the twenty one the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. There's a lot of great details there and then on the jersey itself you know you have the filigree pattern carried over into the sleeve..

E. c. h. L. guys good guys. Just mix well and they always seem to be the same so zach. It's not very often that we have two guests on a rainy day. Podcasts but here we are matt macelroy matt mcelroy matthew mac mcelroy. Mcelroy is a graphic designer for the vegas golden knights and he used to work for the ontario reign. Any made the rainy-day podcast bingo board. And he's done some other work for us on the side so we're going to let them come in and club. Whatever he wants to plug matt's our guys saints around me. I kind of intro in my entire life on the show. He's been on for thirty seconds and he gets this. Well greased done some work. And i don't know how to say his last name necessarily we've do smack. I remember when i met you. Matt i said his macelroy macaroni and he said it's either and i said to myself well. That can't be true but that is what we're going to go with. Now you work for the vegas golden knights now again you used to work for the antero ran. Why are they the vegas golden knights. Why do we not call you. People though las vegas golden knights. I think it's just too many letters. You know nevada fiftieth education. Just tough is it really. Let's put tags well. You can only go right so right. Good place to start okay. Let's talk about the pressing news. Everybody's talking about it. The internet's buzzing. It's blown up about these henderson. Jerseys that i think you had a hand in creating came out yesterday or today to up this podcast and so matt. It's very exciting. They look great. The logo kind of makes me want to call them the henderson horses. But they're not. They're the henderson silver knights. But these are some nice jerseys. Why'd you walk us through a bit. How long did this process take. Obviously the team is owned by vegas. So you and your graphic design team. Basically made these. Yeah so Quite a quite a bit of process in our we had known about the team for a long time before we announce the logo and everything. So we've been sitting on The jersey designs for quite some time and United states probably like six or eight months back and forth with ccn they send samples and prototype jerseys and There were some issues with the way the press turned out so we got those fixed and then we had to decide you know what the lettering look like. What the name bar's gonna look like and all that kind of stuff so it's Pretty heavy process is led by our head graphic designer breed mice earn. I think that the team both at the in its data did an unreal job and excited to see them on the ice next to the rain exchange. So the design of these great now. We heard about that. But what i'm looking to hear about..

"But that's my opinion all going through it off and i say i don't think if you go to major junior that you lose your eligibility because i always say is you don't have eligibility unless team wants you but team doesn't want you have no eligiblity so if if you say you wanna play college hockey but no college team is offering you then. You can't play college hockey right. So if a major junior team wants you you can go play major junior and you can still get your school paid for right. So there's an. I think the one of the things that has improved over the last few years i think the whol has done a better job of educating Especially local southern california families on what what is really true room. What's not true about their academic packages Now that being said looking at some of these college campuses and things they have for the kids facility wise it'd be hard pressed for family or kid To say no to some of these facilities right. Because i mean you know there. There's a number of college facilities are you know hands down nice shirt in any nhl facility. It's the amount of money and resources they can put into it. If like i said it's it would be hard to walk away from if you have an opportunity do that and It's i think you see the junior junior side. A lot of teams are putting more money into whether it be facilities or Other things help build their program so it can kinda emulate what their competitions word again. Tackle tell ya get off on these college hockey tangents all the time but i feel it. We're just thinking about you being on the west coast talking to the west coast event in the option. We're years away. Not decades from the pack twelve just gearing up and getting e one hockey conference go like. Asu has it. Nobody else has over here. That's a that's a separate thing into shame. There's no team playing in that facility in irvine right that rank. It's a perfect college hockey rink with the video board. Maybe three thousand seats like a d one college rink right and it really good one if they could find soon another there. We'll just finish on. When's the last time you what you came to rain game Last time i was to arraign game. It was key i i. I asked my lace. Besides coaching. Which i think i played in one. Men's league game. i lasted maybe two periods. When i was like i was done last time i was two game. I believe was to watch on when they're playing the moose because good friend of mine is the assistant coach. in winnipeg mario johnson So him. So at least for years then because they haven't played them it's probably been. It was towards one of the first years of the rain. But it's yeah it's been a while it's a. I know a guy who might be able to get tickets Exchange for a bobblehead no current. That's a perfectly. Thanks for giving us the time. Not a problem my.

"And one of the players in the locker room was like oh yeah you just go here here here. Menial they'll do for free so this player went and dropped it off. Went to pick it up. Assuming everything was going to be free and the person there they changed it. And i think they'd gone half price now or something while he didn't like that the the new player like that he kind of gave the person behind the counter. A piece of his mind of this. This ain't cool and whatever and so that was that was the start the start of it or that was the actual a nail in the coffin. Done all right. Hey you know what we further on that one. I made some real strides on yes. I'm getting that free dry quick. Want some of these ups zach. What else do you go. I had i had one question. This goes pretty far back in your cooter but you played in the queue. I'm jay gel for three seasons. And then you wind up going to the canadian. College drought ju- take advantage of the scholarship program wide. You go that route as opposed to maybe trying to go to the h. l. d. c. h. Ally right out of junior. So i i mean if you take a look at I guess my stats and in junior. I think what happened was in junior i. I spent too much time doing things that not a lot of people wanted to do. And it considered being a good teammate. But actually hurt me as an individual a player in terms of my development So at the end of my junior career had two options. One was to go to college where there is no fighting where i knew for four years can get a degree and i can work on my skill development or i can go the other route on as a twenty year old and fight men and most likely lose all of them Throwaway my scholarship money from junior on it an and there is. There is time where i kinda i. I was leaning that way but You know. I had a couple conversations with some schools With some close friends and whatnot on what the thing that did it for me was the coach. I had an university names. Fabian joseph and fabian is one of the greatest coaches i've ever had And i say that because he was the first coach that i had actually i felt was honest with me of where i am where i am where i could be but what i needed to do to get there And he made a promise to me. When i came to school at commit to me for four years. Get your degree. I will help you become a better player so when you leave here you will have more opportunities to play at a professional level than you did. You know before you came and you'll be well prepared to play and and not just have to worry about. You know fighting in doing that kind of doing that..

"So that was where i spent that year and at the end of the year Obviously had opportunity to back up by want it but when the reign carl taylor reached out on it was kind of a no brainer for me as a kind of preplanned. It twelve months in advance. That's where i wanted to wanted to be you. Keep in touch with. Carl taylor That's yes no question. Yes in the point that For the last year's i've coached the oh four Jere docs team. And his son is no four played for played for the milwaukee team. So i would always see his son Him or his wife at at the showcases so It always nice to catch up and talk and see where he's at now Hoping that he can crack that the next level it was doing a good job. So far isn't a surprise to you that that that carl is gone from ec. He's just climb the ladder as age. I'll head coach now. No it's not. It's not a surprise me. Because carl was one of those people that was always going to learn as a cold trade. Even when i had at the hr level he was always trying to learn and gain more more knowledge on. But i think the most important thing is he was he was willing to do the work and kind of the quote unquote grinded out To get there. And i think right now. He's all that stuff that he's done in the past you know you look at where he spent. Time in reading An ontario like. There's a lot of years in the minors of nor riding long bus trips. You know sleeping on. The floors of bosses eaten cold sobs on. I think his work ethic is kinda helped them get to areas now and i won't be surprised if he at some point gets an opportunity at the national level. We've all had those those travel nightmares right in the l. The long bus rides or you get snowed in or anything like that. Do you have any of those like nightmarish road trips. Or maybe anything when you had to go to alaska something like that. I always i going to. Alaska was always miserable. Because the three years. I played long beach their teams those three years they were dominant. So i wanna game three the first three years alaska and within being in our division in the minors you play teams in your division like ken. Times it's so you're going there twice to play three games. You go there to play six games and each year. I've got an over and six n we'd get shellacked so it was. I always had a bad kind of feeling of alaska. Because mike can never win here but it was always fun from the standpoint always a trip that brought a team together because It was just one of those places where i think you're so far away from everything that i kinda guy I think tennessee. Spend a little more time together. Those little bit longer. A road trip compared to most forced to be around your teammates. Little bit more. And i'm forced to really bond more than the one night trip.

Dr. Aldon D. Morris Discuss History of Sociology Pertaining to Black America

"John Leo Hinton Junior and welcome to another edition up in black miracle on news leaks program Doctor Alden. Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white. Mississippi and established in one thousand nine hundred. Five small group led by Lester. Ward William Grand something to Franklin Jennings and Albion small at a meeting any of the American Economic Association. The American Sociological Association held his first meeting the following year in Providence Rhode Island the membership in in one thousand nine hundred sixty two at one hundred fifteen for the first several decades the activities of the society or sending on publishing a journal holding an annual annual meeting and performing various administrative functions. Such as record keeping sending out communications and so forth and forty nine the first executive executive officer was appointed on a part time basis and in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. The Association established permanent headquarters in Washington. DC since the organization was founded. There has only been three African American presidents PRYATTA. More selection. Dr Al and Moore's will be the one hundred twelfth president of the American Sociological Association. He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college.
