This is the best of the Adam Gold Show Podcast brought to you by Coach Pete at Capital Financial Advisory Group.

Visit us at This is the Adam Gold Show. So here it is plus a five million dollar fine.

He could do all that and he'd be within his rights to do it based on collective bargaining. But the whole reason that the initial decision goes to a third party is because there was no trust from the players that Roger Goodell wasn't judge, jury and executioner. You're listening to the Adam Gold Show on the North Carolina Sports Network. Very intense music. It's the Adam Gold Show. I'm Adam Gold. Dennis Cox is here. Billy Horschell joins us in about 15 minutes. He's playing at the Wyndham Championship. He's had a pretty good track record there. He did not play last year, but second the year before that.

Sixth and eleventh in the two previous years. So I don't know if you're going to, you know, put your money where your mouth is. Billy Ho might might not be a terrible place to go before we before we talk to Billy Horschell.

Number of things I want to get to, but I want to start here. It is golf too. But if you're interested in Billy Horschell, you might be interested in this. Greg Norman sort of made news yesterday or two days ago in an interview with Tucker Carlson. I guess it was aired yesterday in Fox.

Fox News. Tucker was up at the final round of the Live Invitational at Bedminster. And Norman, I guess, confirmed something that he actually said two years ago. Well, two years ago, two months ago, in that Greg Norman was offered between seven hundred and eight hundred million dollars to join the live golf. You find a tiger? Yeah.

Did I say what did I say? Greg Norman. Greg Norman was offered. I don't. Yeah.

Yeah. Norman didn't have to be offered that money. No, Norman says live offered Tiger Woods. What a train wreck this is already between seven hundred and eight hundred million dollars to join that tour. Now, Norman had said two months ago that Tiger turned down high nine figures for that.

Now, I think roughly three quarters of a billion dollars qualifies as high nine figures. Don't you anyway? But I agree. Norman, in an interview that was conducted at the event with Tucker Carlson called the PGA Tour Monopoly. He expressed concerns that sponsors dropped some of the top flight players on that tour and talked about growing the game. Here's Norman.

I really don't care quite honestly. I just love the game of golf so much and I just want to grow the game of golf. And we at Live see that opportunity. We at Live see it not just for the men, but for the women. We at Live see it for NCAA and younger generations. We at Live see it as a pathway to opportunities for these kids to experience a new world out there. Live is the future of golf. And it's been more it's just that's a very simple phrase and comment. But is Live is the future of golf because you have you don't see what we see in the future. You don't see what we want to invest in the future. CSR programs, education programs, all this stuff that's out there that we want to get involved with for golf and growing the game of golf. All right. That's that's that.

He also like some of that stuff I get. I mean, I think Live is going to do a very similar thing for ladies golf. They already sponsor a lot of ladies golf events. And I mean, it's great for those women because the money will be more than the money by a lot. The money they that they will earn on this tour or the ladies European tour. But it is just it's just money, right?

Just like the men's whatever they're doing right now is really just money. The events are they're fine. They're golf.

I'm not knocking it. I watched a full disclosure. I have a pretty good friend who's part of the production, the TV production of the live tour. And like if you watch the production values of that golf of those golf tournaments, they're excellent. I mean, legitimately excellent. So I get it. I get it. But. Greg said. That it is the future of golf. I don't I'm not saying he's wrong.

OK. In no way am I challenging that because it may very well be as long as the money doesn't run out. Because if you had said to Dustin Johnson and he got between one hundred twenty five and one hundred and fifty million dollars to as a contract to go play for live. If you had told Dustin Johnson that that contract would be 20 million dollars a year, which would be a lot but more along the lines of something normal. Dustin Johnson would not have done this. No chance if you had offered Phil Mickelson.

Twenty million dollars a year, which is really what his value is to any golf tour. If it's that, it's probably not that anymore. But it was one. He's a Hall of Famer.

Yeah. And Dustin Johnson will be in the Hall of Fame, too, by the way. Phil wouldn't have done it. They wouldn't have done it. There's just no way that they would have done that if the money wasn't insane, because that's what it is. The money is insane. David Farity would not have left Golf Channel and NBC if the money he got it live wasn't in the neighborhood of twenty five million dollars a year.

For less work, he wouldn't have done it. That's just separating, you know, why they're doing it from what they're saying. It's every single one of them is doing it for money. That's just what they're doing. That's that's fine. Yeah. Right.

But and I said this on Twitter the other day. I can't I cannot accept and I do not accept that you are fans of both. I do not think it is possible to be a fan of both. I don't. How? Because if you are a fan of live, Norman just told you live is the future of golf. They can say what they want.

There's no interest at all in the two coexisting. Norman wants the live tour to destroy the PGA Tour. It's been his life's mission since the PGA Tour screwed him over in nineteen ninety four.

He was going to get back. It's not about Jay Monahan. It's not about anything else.

If it's about one entity, it's about Tim Fincham, the old the other commissioner. Norman wants to destroy the PGA Tour. There is no doubt in my mind that is true. And he's got the bankroll right now to do it. Because the money is bottomless.

Bottomless. And there are more players coming. There is no doubt when the FedEx Cup is over, there are more players going.

And it's going to make people go, oh, my. Right. There won't be enough to really damage the PGA Tour for now.

But two years from now, if that money is still going. I do believe that Greg Norman has a point. However. There's a there's a lot to be said about this.

I don't want to belabor the point too much. The major championships will have the final say in what this looks like. The Masters may alter their invitations. But the truth is, is that they don't have to because there is such a reliance on the world golf rankings that by the time we get to the next major championship. There probably won't be anybody on the live tour in the top 50 in the world.

Probably nobody. Dustin Johnson has the best chance to still be in the top 50. I don't think anybody else will be in the top 50. And I think almost everybody will be outside the top 100 by the time we get to the next cutoff point to determine a Masters field. Some of these people are exempt. Patrick Reed's exempt.

Brooks Koepke is exempt for a while because his exemptions will run out. We'll see. But it's the majors will take care of itself because the world golf rankings will take care of themselves. But those two tours, the PGA tour, the European tour and the live tour, they won't coexist because the live tour doesn't want to. They absolutely don't. I absolutely understand why the PGA tour is taking a hard line, a harder line than the European tour. I understand why they've done that because the live is a threat. Yeah, there is.

I mean, how many times have we said if Liv was interested in sports radio? Yeah, come talk to us. Come talk to us. I have never made it made this a morality play, by the way. I've never made it that because I don't think that's the proper place to have this argument. You can.

What about anything? Yeah. Tournaments are going to go where the money is. Yep. Simple. They are.

They are going to go with and that's all it comes down to. It's all money deal. Athletes. Athletes.

That's a lot of it is self-worth. Billy Horschel. We'll talk about it with him when we come back. I want to talk about some other things with Billy. And I'm sure that this whole year has been exhausting for somebody like Billy Horschel. So we'll find out what he's got left because one more tournament plus the playoffs. Billy Horschel joins us next. Adam Golden Studio with my man Coach Pete DeRuta with the Capital Financial Advisory Group.

We're talking retirement and coach. I'm a simple guy but I like colors. Tell me how I can color code money and get ready for retirement. I like colors too. I like pictures. I like graphs.

I don't like just a bunch of words. And so what we try to do is we try to break down all those words on your statement, all those numbers into three colors. Red, green, yellow. People are amazed when they come in and most of their money is in the red category. Yeah, I don't want that. Now red means high horsepower potential. It also means high loss potential. So you have to, it's a give and take.

Are you willing to do that or that? Yellow means liquid money. You can get it anytime.

It's not going to earn anything. Green gives you safe growth but also gives you lifetime income. As we get closer to retirement we need some green accounts. We need the green zone we call it. And Baghdad green zone was important. Green zone is important for you too. The next ten people, Adam, it's a thousand dollar value. Golden ticket we're going to put together for you. Your very own total plan that has a green zone. It's a traffic light.

I hope it's green for you. 800-661-7383 or text ADAM to 21000 for Coach Pete DeRuta. A couple of things that did happen today. We're breaking news from the NFL at the beginning of the show right before we started. Right before they knew we were going to talk about the Deshaun Watson ruling from yesterday. The NFL handed down their own ruling regarding the Miami Dolphins. Stephen Ross, the owner, was not accused or is not found to have intentionally tanked that season.

I guess it was Brian Flores' first season with Miami. And so he did not, the NFL basically let him off the hook for that. They couldn't corroborate Brian Flores' accusation that there was incentivized losing from the Dolphins front office. But they did ding the Dolphins for tampering with Tom Brady, basically for three straight years.

So they got the Dolphins for that. Again, it dated back to Brady's last season, before his last season in New England. And remember there was this rumor that Brady was going to leave Tampa, go into the front office for a year, and then play. Because he was still under contract for one more year. So after the Super Bowl, he was going to go into the front office of the Dolphins, let the contract essentially run out, and then come back to play.

Which of course, that's fine, if Tom Brady wanted to do that. And maybe that was the plan all along, but it didn't work out and the Dolphins lose a first round pick this year. And a, what, a second round, a third round pick in 2024.

So that's the, that's what's going on there. And the other thing that happened is that Juan Soto got traded today. Juan Soto gets traded from the Nationals to the Padres for a package of players, but Josh Bell is also in the deal. And that's a pretty big deal for the Padres. Because if you are San Diego, you're going to run out Soto and Tatis and Machado and Josh Bell in the middle of your order.

And that is a pretty stout order. Good luck. Just good luck pitching against that.

Have fun. Seriously. I know Tatis has been hurt all season because of a wrist injury, but I know he's been back taking BP. But yeah, he comes back fresh. Him, Soto, Machado, Bell. Look, in baseball, all you have to do is get everything together by playoff time. Last year, the Atlanta Braves, who were excellent when it mattered the most, the Braves were one game under 500 at the beginning of August. Basically right where we are today. They were under 500. Caught fire, made some trades, bada boom, get to the postseason and rocked.

Absolutely rocked. But I mean, that's not always going to work. The Nationals had the worst record in the National League the year they won the Super Bowl, the World Series in 2018. And think about this. Think about the people that were in the Nationals lineup when they won the World Series. Scherzer on the mound. Trey Turner, Soto, Harper, Anthony Rendon. All those guys are gone. All of them are gone.

That is amazing. All of those guys are gone. So good trade for the Padres.

There's still a couple of really big fish out there. Seattle got involved getting the starting pitcher Castillo from the Reds. Seattle is going to make a run at this. Remember, all you got to do is be great in September and October.

And you are all set. Speaking of being great in, well, we'll just say August. That's what Billy Horschel is hoping to do. He's going to play at the Wyndham Championship starting on Thursday. Pride of the University of Florida joins us on the Adam Gold Show.

It is an honor, sir. We met about 12 or so years ago. I think you played in a Paul Tesori Golf Tournament charity event here in Durham way back then. How are you doing? I'm doing good.

How about you? I remember that. I was over near Raleigh. Yep.

Briar Creek, which is right on the border between Durham and Raleigh. Welcome back to the Wyndham Championship. I don't believe you were here last year, but you've got good vibes over the last few years. You've been very successful here. Second, I believe, in 2020, right? Correct.

Yeah. I've had some success here, especially over the last five or six years. And I'm excited to be back. It's always been a tournament that I've enjoyed. Mark Grasil, tournament director, and his entire staff, did an unbelievable job of putting on a great event. And then the people here in Greensboro and around North Carolina do an unbelievable job of supporting it. So it's always a course that I love playing, Central Country Club, an old Donald Ross golf course.

I love old school courses like this. And so it's just been a great place for me, and I've had a lot of success. And hopefully, this will be the year that I finally can get across the finish line as the winner. And if you do, it should put you up into the top 10. What kind of an incentive is to be in the top 10 of the FedExCup standings? Right now, I believe you're 18th. I don't know if you can get to inside the top 10 with a win, but is that part of the incentive for coming?

Yeah, it is. I think with a win, I can move up to seventh or eighth. And so it would be great to get in that top 10, be part of that Comcast business, extra money that they give away to the guys who are top 10 at the end of the regular season. And then it puts me in an even better position going into next week and starting the playoffs to be as high up as I can at the start of East Lake to give myself the best opportunity to hopefully win another FedExCup.

That's right. You can join, I believe, Rory McIlroy as a two-time FedExCup champion. And you and Rory are kind of, I guess, joined a little bit. I want to get to the issue in a little bit.

I don't want to start with that. I want to get some other stuff about your year. You won at Memorial. You were second at Bay Hill. These are two of the Heritage events. And to an extent, so is this event in Greensboro. It's one of the longest running events on the PGA Tour. This is something that you probably grew up watching.

Yeah, I did. I remember watching this event throughout the years. I remember playing an AJGA event when it used to be over, probably it was Forest Heights here.

I think Forest Heights, right? Yeah. And Brent Snedeker won there, I believe, 0-7 when he got his first title. So I've watched this event. It really is a historic event. When you look at the names who've won it, to be able to add my name next to Sam Snead, who's a legend in this game of golf, that would be unbelievable to be associated with him in this tournament. So it's a great tournament. I wish we would have even more of the top guys around the country and around the world come play. But obviously I know where it falls in the schedule, so it makes it a little bit tougher.

But like I said, there's not many guys that come here that don't walk away and rave about this event. Yeah, it's a great golf course. I came out there, and I'll be out there on Thursday, I came out the year Tiger played. He was trying to get into the FedExCup playoffs, and his back was still bothering him. And I swear that was the year that the Wyndham became a major.

I've never seen crowds. I don't know if you played in that year, but he was tied for the lead going to Saturday. I was out there on the Friday, and it was eight deep around the first tee for the Wyndham.

It was absolutely tremendous. The schedule came out yesterday, and there are 44 events on the PGA Tour, again for next year. Where do you stand on the length of the season? 52 weeks in the year, 44 events.

That's a lot. I know you don't play all of them, but what is your take on the length of the season? Yeah, that's a great question. For a majority of my career, I've always tried to get across to the PGA Tour that a shorter schedule would be more beneficial to the PGA Tour, be more beneficial to the players, to the fans. We could take more time off, and the fans would sort of have that after a couple months of no golf being played, they want that golf, they want that, they can't wait for golf to come back. It's no different than football and college football the way it is now.

We haven't had any football for five, six months now, and now everyone's really gearing up because college football is a month away, NFL football is six weeks away, so everyone's excited about that. We could somehow duplicate that with golf would be, I think, be beneficial, but I also understand at the same time that the tour's job is to create financial opportunities in golf tournaments for its members. They've done a great job of that throughout the history, and I think we're fortunate enough that we have a lot of sponsors around not only the U.S., but around the world that want to be a part of the PGA Tour, and it's pretty tough to turn sponsors away that are willing to offer up a lot of money and where guys can reap the financial rewards of that. One of the things I've always liked about you, Billy Horschel is joining us here on the Adam Gold Show, is that you are willing to play overseas.

I remember watching, it was last year, the BMW PGA, which is essentially their top domestic European event. I remember watching you win that, and I know that was a big deal to you, but you mentioned college football, so you got to be sick and tired of all the Georgia guys on tour, especially after last year. Yeah, you know what? They're pretty good. They don't give me too much of a hard time.

I mean, Brian Harmon's probably the worst, but Brian Harmon's a good friend of mine, so he likes to put the needle in a little bit and really turn it, especially when Georgia's doing well. We do talk about it. We talk about our teams, and then obviously when the Florida Georgia game gets played, it's interesting three weeks, the week before leading up to it, or the week and a half leading up to it, and the week after, because whoever wins, it's going to be the other side.

They're going to have a lot of stuff coming towards their way from the winning team. Let me ask you, I'll get to where... You almost led me a couple of minutes ago. This has to have been an exhausting year for you, for Rory McIlroy, for Justin Thomas, because it seems like you guys have really carried the public weight of the PGA Tour against what is going on with the Live Golf Tour.

What are your thoughts on where we are? Are you tired? Are you worried? Am I tired of talking about it?

No. I mean, it doesn't bother me at all. I understand it's in the game of golf, and that's what people want to discuss right now, and so I have no issue ever discussing it, and I'm very open about what I say.

What I say behind closed doors is what I say out in public. Am I worried about the game of golf? I think the game of golf is in a great place. Do I think Live is going to add and make the game of golf better? No. Do I think 50-foot hole events, no shotgun starts, no cuts, sort of that guarantee, that safety net that you're always going to make a paycheck, that you already signed a big contract? Do I think that's great for the game of golf?

No. I mean, I'm old school in the sense that I think golf is so great in the sense that you earn what you make. I know we're different than other sports, and other sports sign a lot of massive contracts, so they're guaranteed money for X amount of years, and that's the way they always have done things. But golf is really cool in the instance that if you played really well that year, you get financially rewarded. If you don't, you don't get financially rewarded, but like I said, I don't fault any of those guys that went.

I made a decision that was best to them. They play the game of golf for a different reason than I play the game of golf. Money is not the number one reason why I play the game of golf. I'm here to try and make a name for myself so my name can be remembered throughout the history of the game of golf. That's why I grew up playing the game of golf. When I was a junior, I never thought about, I'm going to go make millions of dollars on the PGA Tour. I talked about, man, I really want to win the Bay Hill event, the Arnold Palmer event. I really want to win the Memorial like Tiger did. I want to win majors. That's what I grew up wanting.

That's what I still want to this day. But I do understand the financial side is how I do make my living, and that's obviously the benefit of playing this game of golf, but it's not my number one focus or main reason playing. So like I said, I don't fault those guys for going, they made a decision that's best for them and everything.

The only thing I've always said is that don't say you did it because you want to spend more time with the family, you're wanting to shorten your schedule up. You could do that easily out here on the PGA Tour, you only have to play 15 events out here. And if you look at it, you play 15 events and that includes four majors.

And then on the left side, you play 14 events and you add in the four majors, that's 18 events. You're actually playing more than what you have to do on the PGA Tour. So like I said, we could go into this a lot deeper and everything, but I just don't like the guys that have went that have sort of thrown mud at the PGA Tour where they've made a name and they've made a lot of money and made billions and there's people behind the doors that have allowed them to be successful that people don't know about that work hard at the PGA Tour. So the PGA Tour is going to be strong.

We've got unbelievable sponsors, we've got unbelievable product. We've got players that love being out here. We've got kids coming from college that want to be a part of the PGA Tour that grew up dreaming about being on the PGA Tour and winning tournaments.

So the PGA Tour is going to be fine. I have no doubt about that. Billy Horschel, I appreciate your honesty. I'm a fan. I can't believe you haven't played on a national team.

We're going to take care of that this year at the President's Cup. Good luck to you this week. I hope you win it and I look forward to seeing you soon. I appreciate your time. Sounds good to see you.

Take care. Billy Horschel playing at the Wyndham Championship. Like if I had started that, if I had started there. Billy might have gone on for 10 minutes by himself. We might not have ever talked about the Wyndham Championship. Billy Horschel, I think a guy worth rooting for. We could have gone a number of ways off that, but Billy's got things to do.

He's got range balls to hit, he's got putts to roll. It all starts on Thursday. I'm actually going out this Thursday and Friday. Hayes Permo will be doing the show. There you go.

Billy's got to sink more than that. But Hayes will be here Thursday and Friday, I'm going out on Thursday to watch and cover the first round. Should be, I mean they have a very good field. I don't know how much better it would be. Patrick Reed would have probably been here because Reed is a past champion. Sergio Garcia would have been here because Sergio Garcia is a past champion. It's a great event. Davis loves playing this week.

Nice. I mean he's 54 years old at this point. But he won it, I believe in his 50s. I think he was already champion's tour eligible when he won it a few years ago.

If not, he was almost champion's tour eligible. But it's a really good event. I think they like the spot where it's the last event in the regular season before the playoffs. So thanks to Billy Horschel for coming on. Let's get to halftime.

And now, your halftime entertainment. Davis Love won it in 2015. So okay, so, gosh, it was that long ago? Yeah. There are certain things that seem like they were forever ago and it was two years ago. And there are certain things, I could have sworn it was like three years. Nope. Sorry.

Gosh. 2015. So Love was like 47 years old. Is he 54 now? I don't know.

Not entirely sure. But I know who's 52 today and that's Kevin Smith. Kevin Smith turns 52 today. Gosh. He looked pretty good. He's lost a lot of weight.

Yeah, yeah. Especially since several years ago. Not too long ago, he had that big heart attack. He lost silent Bob. No, he lost Jay. Yeah, he lost Jay.

He lost Jay. Yeah. Yeah, he actually lost a lot of weight. And actually, he talked about over the last few years, he actually switched over to being vegan as a way to get him to stay healthy. Oh, very good. I know people who have gone vegan.

I probably need to. My co-host, our good friend, my culture state co-host, Chris Lee, also vegan. Is he really? He is. All right. We're going to talk to Chris in about 45 minutes. I know. That's why I bring him up. So congratulations to Kevin Smith, 52 years old.

Glad he's still around. So I don't think you watched Stranger Things season four. I don't think you did. No. Okay.

That's fine. Well, a song heavily featured in the show in season four, Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush, has gotten a lot of air time, got a lot of stream play because of the popularity of the show and how great the season was. Kate Bush is estimated to have earned $2.3 million in streaming royalties since the show was released.

Season four, $2.3 million in royalties for Kate Bush just for that song that came out in the 80s. Well, good for her. Yeah, I know.

That's awesome. Good for her. Here's the thing.

The show only came out a couple of months ago or season four, I should say. There's sort of a, like the music industry has suffered based on that, right? Because there's so much streaming and downloading of music that a lot of artists struggle to get all of the worth out of their work.

So good for Kate Bush, man. Cash in. So it used to be back in the music industry before there was streaming what was called just spins. So it was a number of plays that you would get on a radio and the outreach and all that stuff of what you get. So a number of spins mattered. So the amount of money that artists receive per play, whether it's on Spotify, Apple Music, whatever it may be, the payout per play or per spin isn't really that high.

So the fact that she's got $2.3 million in royalties when you're making maybe what, $0.10 a play, it's crazy to think. That's a lot of plays. That's a ton. That's a lot of plays.

That's a ton. So I want to play this cut of audio from you. This is actually, we talked earlier about how the San Diego Padres have acquired Juan Soto and Josh Bell from the Washington Nationals. Well, this happened yesterday during the Padres game when they were playing the Minnesota Twins. So Dylan Bundy, a member of the Minnesota Twins, was sitting in the dugout and while he was, let's say, caught picking his nose and the Valley Sports San Diego Padres broadcast had some fun with it.

Cameras on you all the time. Yep. Here's the sound of that.

Foul back off to the right and it's one and one. Oh yeah. Get in there. Oh yeah.

A couple of knuckles. Yeah, there you go. Get it. It's extensive. Yeah.

50 bucks says a kid's going to eat it. Oh man. High drive, deep left field and that ball is gone, a home run. So yeah, right after they call it, literally home run gets hit by Minnesota.

Solo shot and the timing was great. Now obviously there's the reference that was made there. Shouts, who's the analyst? Because Don Orsillo is the play by play guy for the Padres. Mark Grant.

Mark Grant is the analyst and he dropped the Caddyshack reference. Say, 50 bucks, the swales kid picks his nose. Okay. Come on. Don't do it. Don't. Here you come. All right, kid, take your time.

Now don't do it. Come on. Come on.

Yeah. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on.

Thank you. Go on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Come on.

It worked. Thank you. Come on. Come on. Come on. or a pic it was a scratch hey it's me don't you think I know the difference between a pic and a scratch was there any nostril penetration there may have been some incidental penetration but from her angle she was in no position to make the call so let's say in her mind she witnessed a pic okay so then what is that so unforgivable is that like breaking a commandment did God say to Moses thou shalt not pick I guarantee you Moses was a picker you wander through the desert for 40 years with that dry air you're telling me you're not gonna have occasion to clean house a little bit yeah definitely a pic not a scratch just phenomenal my gosh oh man somebody's always watching dude yeah Dylan Bundy somebody's always watching I love that it's okay you could tell me it's me oh that's fantastic all right it do some like newsy stuff you're right you do so Amazon obviously is Thursday Night Football but Amazon's gonna allow for bars and restaurants that have DirecTV to still air those Thursday games so if you do everyone no homes homes that have DirecTV you're screwed yes and restaurants are okay exactly bars and restaurants you're good to go whatever bars and restaurants are good to go but also Amazon for some games is going to have a second screen experience much like the Manning cast it with ESPN so I believe Kirk Herb Street has signed on to do some games as well I believe he's doing the Thursday night games without Mike oh that's right he is nevermind I take that back so he is doing the the analyst play but I know that the guys from dude perfect are gonna sign on to her I guess series of games I'm not sure exactly how many they're gonna do but my guess is they're gonna keep it in rotation for the throughout the season and there's also been rumors floating around that Pat McAfee and his crew would actually do a second experience that would be good as a watch along I guess you can say so they're gonna have these alternate broadcasts but we at Kirk Herb Street obviously he's gonna do a set of games but yeah the guys from dude perfect are gonna be doing an alternate broadcast and it also appears maybe potentially Pat McAfee and those guys are in discussion as well all right last little bit here I know you since you're a huge soccer fan the UEFA Champions League rights are actually coming up here in the United States are coming up in a couple of years so right now CBS has the rights to them yes but the next bidding rights are gonna begin the 24 25 campaign I'll be I'll be surprised if ESPN doesn't go hard after that well right now CBS has control Amazon and CBS apparently are the two front-runners right now so CBS is gonna look at I'm sorry UEFA is gonna look at maybe a either a three-year bid or a six-year bid and their goal apparently for the three-year bid I'm sorry over six years would be two billion dollars so you're looking at man three hundred and thirty million dollars roughly per year which is more than the 150 million currently being paid per year by CBS and Univision so UEFA has discussed the Champions League rights again with the usual suspects here in the US but the favorite rights holders now are CBS and Amazon Amazon has struck a deal with UEFA for champion leads rights in the UK starting in 2024 so Amazon has the rights over in the United Kingdom for UEFA Champions League so that might be there in to carry it here in the United States I'm totally you're speaking my language now man yeah but CBS wants to keep to have a soccer inventory because they have rights with the NWSL right now a lot of those games are on Paramount Plus they have Serie A over in Italy as well as some other CONCACAF team Natchez and they have some other things up in you know Scotland Brazil Argentina ESPN has Bundesliga and La Liga mm-hmm would be good for them if Barcelona came back right like legitimately came back of course they're they have a little bit of an uphill climb financially but they I'm sure they would also like Champions League yeah but I've watched what they have matches on ESPN Plus like the the second division of English football they show those games on ESPN Plus they do so like it's interesting to find where all this is gonna end up I'll watch my son is like so mad at me because you watch them because I watch more soccer than he does he's mad that's okay flat mad that's fine it's like dad you've been you've been a fan for seven months stop it I say I can't help I'm wondering because ESPN has paid so much money for La Liga and those and booty got so much maybe they just don't have a place to put all of it I mean you still get real you don't get Barcelona you still get Bayern you scored Dortmund and there's I mean American there's an American playing at Dortmund there's an Americans playing or an American playing at Barcelona serginio d'est I mean sort of American I mean he's born in the Netherlands sort of America go with that but yeah they've you know they're they're Americans playing overseas so that's all right all right that's all I got today Oh June 19 2006 but it all started May 6 1997 with the announcement that the Hartford Whalers were coming to North Carolina it's a story of transition of heartbreak of figuring it out on the fly the canescorner look at the 25th anniversary of the move presented by the aluminum company of North Carolina listen now find James 25th anniversary wherever you get your podcast before we get to wagers I was sort of right about Davis love and here's why why I say that okay my thought was man it was like just after he became champions tour eligible that he won because I thought that was talked about when he won the Wyndham back as you said in 2015 so I thought he was 54 he's not 54 he's 58 oh so he was actually 51 years old in 2015 when he won the Wyndham championship was his first win in seven years on the PGA Tour it had been a while okay and so loved one there and so he is he was 51 years old so I was sort of right I just can't believe that it's seven years ago that that is what it happened just feels like it was like three years ago but it was seven with that said one place bet I was this close Watford and was it Watford play Sheffield United yesterday yeah I went with a draw Sheffield United had chances late and Watford held on 1-0 at Sheffield I'm bummed about that I think was that Sheffield I was bummed about that Francisco Lindor I've thought about going with runs batted in as opposed to runs scored but runs scored was a higher value he had a three-run homer but only scored one run was that close that closed Dennis shame yeah real shame you know I was this close I was one run one from my parlay which the Astros which team they lost to the Red Sox 3-2 they were leading 2-1 late I know 2-1 I think in the seventh inning yeah I got these others right and I got Padres right I got the Mets right you know the Astros Mets are once again I was plus 460 but I did call Anthony Rizzo hitting a home he did plus 360 yesterday so still plus 260 for the day beautiful beautiful I was good give us a start all right I'm gonna go Champions League qualifier because why not all right Monaco vs. PSV Eindhoven no huh good draw plus 270 drop what is this first leg or second leg yes very good good for you I am staying away from soccer I'm in a little bit of a soccer lull here I'm gonna wait until we get closer to the start Premier League starts on Friday tomorrow remember I'm not here Thursday and Friday tomorrow I might load up on Premier League wagers there you go I might completely load up on that all right Mets Nationals it's Jacob de Grom day I don't think the Grom is gonna pitch all that long today okay I think he probably goes five innings but I'm gonna take the Grom to get eight or more strikeouts and the Mets to win at plus 190 all right you know one thing I can't bet on is Juan Soto hitting a home run right or Josh Bell or Josh Bell they're both involved in a lot of parlays and a lot of prop pens the over plus a hundred million yeah that's what that's gonna be but give me made a Machado his new team made a home run a plus 360 plus 360 Machado very nice I'm staying with the Mets in the national of course you are you know what the pattern has been over Jacob de Grom's career with the Mets is that they don't score runs when he pitches under six and a half runs for the Mets at plus 170 okay all right then under six and a half runs actually it's I think it's combined under six and a half runs not just met all right once plus 170 Yankees play the Mariners 705 first pitch uh-huh Yankees minus a run in half is a plus 125 nice I'll take that all right I think the win by two against the Mariners sure you know well Mariners I think Mariners are good you're you're not doing a 47 team parlay I'm in baseball today no no you should do that yeah okay fine I'll change it you make your third bet I'm gonna rework mine give me your third bet all right I'm staying with the Mets in the Nationals today of course I have tunnel vision of course I say no home run is hitting the game okay a Mets game Mets Nationals game with no home runs at plus 275 home run free tonight at plus 275 Soto homered last night he did in his final game with the Nationals and then Lindor I think that made it I think that made it for three Mets when Soto homered I think that was the bottom of the sixth and then Lindor hit a three run home run to make it seven three in the top of the seventh and we couldn't get Lindor around again the next time he came up so I ended up losing that bet so those are my three wagers under six and a half runs de gramme eight strikeouts and the Mets to win and no home runs those are my three all right here's I'm going with okay Padres in game one of their doubleheader against the Rockies win Yankees versus Mariners win right Braves versus Phillies win oh that's an NL East battle twins versus Tigers win Cardinals versus Cubs win Astros over the Red Sox win so six legs six leg parlay what is that like plus five twenty plus ten six oh I hope you win I hope so too I hope you do it oh gosh if the Astros screw me again I'm done this is the reason why I didn't choose the Blue Jays to win because they've already screwed me once it's long parlays I think I sort of advised you yesterday baseball so weird sport to do man it's a weird sport to do but I haven't hit once I like if you take like three or four big favorites in the NFL just to win outright yeah you can your your parlay odds can can kind of bring you through this is the Adam Gold Show
