Also, we hear from Carolina Hurricanes President/GM Don Waddell, and new Canes defenseman Brent Burns, after Burns was acquired at the start of NHL Free Agency from the San Jose Sharks.

Plus, is 'ham' overrated, underrated, or properly right rated?

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

Visit us at CapitalFinancialUSA.com. This is the Adam Gold Show. I haven't heard a lot of news about the Carolina Hurricanes today. Yesterday, things were flying. Yeah. Like all you had to do was just keep Twitter open and it was like, Cain's doing this, Cain's about to do this, Cain's might do this. I'm hearing this is what the Cain's are doing. Then you get it confirmed, then you get some confirmation, then you get a grade on it, be an A+, then you get an email that it's official for the Cain's, then you get a link to watch the interview on Zoom. And in fact, right now, I believe Max Pacioretty is meeting with the media. He is.

That's right. We could do the super lazy July sports radio thing and just turn on the Max Pacioretty Zoom feed. But instead, we'll maybe save for tomorrow some of the best comments for you.

Just bring it to you during the show. No, we haven't heard anything. You know why? Because Twitter was down.

So that's what I was going to get to. So not a lot of news flying today. I miss this. This proves that I'm not the Twitterer that I used to be. I used to know when Twitter was down, right?

Because I'm on there all the time. Because you broke it. No, you would just be very aware, like, whoa, whoa, whoa, is Twitter not working? There's always the initial, whoa, what's wrong with my phone, right? That should be like the four stages of Twitter going down. It's like, whoa, what's wrong with my cell phone? What's wrong with the internet? Then it's like, wait a minute, no, no, no, my other apps are working. Then it's, whoa, what's wrong with my phone? Then it's like, whoa, no, no, what's wrong with Twitter? And somehow the biggest irony is oftentimes the place you go to figure out what's going on. I remember when an earthquake happened in Sparta, North Carolina, and I happened to be in Todd, North Carolina, not very far away up there in Ash County.

Shout out Ash County. And there was a weird rumbling and shaking, like that didn't seem menacing, but did seem out of the ordinary. And I was like, what just happened? You jump on Twitter and you're like, what happened? And on Twitter, you see people saying, was that an earthquake? And then you see somebody retweeting something like, yes, it was an earthquake. And then, you know, but when Twitter goes down, the place you go to to find out about it is on Twitter. It's not working. So how do you ever know that Twitter is down?

You can't. So when was Twitter down and how long did it stay down for? It was down this morning for a few hours, I think.

But even even still, when it was, quote unquote, back, wasn't fully back, wasn't fully back. I was trying to post a video that I made about Twitter being down on Twitter and it wouldn't post. Very meta. Well, I guess not meta because it was Twitter. You can't use meta now because they made the company name meta.

Now we can't use the term meta without people thinking that we're talking about the company meta because I was gonna say that's very meta of you. But you know what I mean? Twitter back up. Is there any news about the canes today? No, none other than Zach Sawchenko. Yeah, other than that.

But even like the the like Frank Cirovalli and Pierre Le Brun, you know, the Wojan Chams of the NHL world. Apparently tweeted out anything today. Nothing. Sounds like no one is signed anywhere.

Maybe they get their sources from Twitter and now they they can't get theirs. Since we don't have a lot of new hurricanes news happening, let's go to the Wall of Sound and hear about the old hurricanes news, you know, the 24 hours old hurricanes news. Let's go to the Wall of Sound.

The Wall of Sound is a function of this studio. There's no doubt about it. I think a lot of them are in Canada.

Maybe it's a Canadian Twitter issue. All due respect to Max Pacioretty, whose name I'm getting better and better at saying. The biggest addition to the Carolina Hurricanes yesterday after a flurries of move was probably former Norris trophy winner and potential future Hall of Famer Brent Burns and apparently really big dude with a large beard. Massive beard. And he zoomed in from where I don't know where he was.

Montana, Texas. I mean, because he had some big horns on the wall like he had what looked to be. I mean, basically, if you looked at him and be like, I wonder what kind of house that guy would live in.

It's the exact house you thought it would be. Large animal horns on the walls of things that he probably killed with his bare hands. Big deer head. Big deer. Again, these are things that he ran down, then captured with his own hands, wrestled the life out of them and then didn't carve, just ripped the horns off of the deer and jabbed them into his wall such that they stuck. He didn't lose his teeth playing hockey.

Yes. Fought a bear problem. So Brent Burns was the let's start with what Don Weddell said about Brent Burns. First of all, he said that Brent Burns was excited to come to Carolina.

Roddy and I called him just a little while ago and the excitement that he has just over the phone, it gets you really excited because he does bring a lot of energy. He's a very upbeat guy. You talk to all the players that have played with him and that very well respected. He's been a leader on his team for many, many years and a guy that everybody looks up to. But I think his personality is a good guy that loves to play hockey and enjoys it.

And I think we're going to find him to be a real good fit here for us. Was San Jose any good last year? No.

Okay. So you can imagine that a guy is making the same money and went from a bad team to a good team. Max Domi would talk about this. Max Domi seemed like the happiest dude even in his exit interviews from the Canes where he's like, I'm probably not going to get resigned.

But you know what was cool? When I was on that really crappy team and then when I woke up one morning, they're like, hey, you're on the really good team now. He's like, this is awesome. There's probably some of that for Brent who believes that, you know, regardless of whether the Canes are going to be the number one team or the number five team or the number eight team in the NHL next year, he's probably going to the playoffs with the Canes would be his guest.

And Burns actually had to approve the trade because of his contract stipulation. They asked, hey, we have a deal set with Carolina. He's like, yeah, I'll go play there.

One thing, I was making the comparison to the New England Patriots earlier and it's one of the things that they created for themselves. Once you start to seem to be smart, then you become a place that people want to play. Freezants want to come there for the most part. I think the Hurricanes, one thing that they've also done a good job of is get a feel on whether or not a person wants to be there. Do not try and convince somebody that they don't want to be there. Don't try and convince somebody who thinks they don't want to play in Carolina that it's the place they want to play, right? Brent Burns is obviously smart enough to see a smart system, a place that players like to play, a squad that players like to play for, a coach that players like to play for, a team that's had success, a team that's likely going to have success, right? Who was it? Adam Fox a couple years ago that didn't want to play for the Canes and I don't know all the circumstances.

I'm not judging anybody. We all got our own list of priorities of why we're going to play at a place, right? But he didn't want to play there and the Hurricanes didn't waste time or beat around the bush and be like, no, no, we'll sell you on it.

It was like, nope, you don't want to play here, move on, right? Seek the guys that are excited about playing for you and I think that the relationships are more likely to work out. Maybe just as important as Burns being excited to join the Carolina Hurricanes is that the Carolina Hurricanes players were excited about the addition of Brent Burns, so says Don Waddell. I think today we made our team better for sure and by the time we get through, there's no doubt in my mind that a couple things make us better. I think some of the players that we're adding currently, but also the experience that our young players have received, especially the last couple year playoff run.

The best way to get experience in the playoffs is to play as many games as you can, so I think we've taken those steps. So I think when you add guys like Brent Burns, I think it's a huge addition to your team. I think since it's been announced, eight or nine of our players, current players, have already texted me saying, wow, they can't believe we got this, guys. So that's always a positive sign. That's the coolest thing that I heard out of Don Waddell, was eight or nine dudes with the Carolina Hurricanes, who knows what they're doing right now. As soon as they heard that Brent Burns was coming to the Canes, they hit up the GM and were like, heck yeah. That's cool. That's a good sign for me. But of course, let's hear from the man himself.

Brent Burns, as you mentioned, it was a trade, but it was something that he had to stay in and as far as his vote, it was easy to say yes in green light and move to rally. You know, I just think it fits our family really well. I think we love the outdoors.

We love a little bit quieter, a little bit open space. So I think there was no issue there with the team. There was no issue with that. I mean, that's a great team that's competing for a championship every year. And just from playing against those guys and having Rod there, I think I've heard nothing but unbelievable things about him and the way he goes about his business. And yeah, I just think it was a very easy fit for us. I think as hard as the decision was for us to leave San Jose and try something new, which it was, I mean, that's not an easy thing to do when you're in a place for so long and have nothing but great things to say about it. It's been really nice. I think even today, just having this extra excitement and extra energy, I can feel it already.

It's something really special to come and be a part of and can't wait to meet the guys. Burns wants to hunt. He's coming to the right place. I know some spots down in Duplo County where he'll be able to pick off a few bucks. Is he living down in Garner or is he going all the way to Johnston County? I mean, he might just straight up set up camp in Joko.

But Burns, he should adjust to rally. He even name checked where he wants to play. He's excited about playing PNC.

Or did he say PNC? Regardless, he's excited about it. You know, it's always a place that when you play there, it's crazy. I was always a guy that would ride to the games early and there's people out there tailgating. I think it's just such a special place and loud building. I mean, there is a lot of similarities in that with San Jose.

People don't realize how great of a hockey town it is. Yeah, I'm excited. We're excited to have Burns. We'll see what Max Pacioretty says. He's talking to the media right now. We probably won't bring you that audio today. We'll get it to you tomorrow on the Adam Gold show.

And finally, on the Wall of Sound, audio that basically is only good today and that's why we got to use it. Shout out to the one and only, John? You know why? Because his name is similar to Jeremy Markovitch who does the North Carolina rabbit hole.

It's not Jeremy. John Markovitch from Con Air, the movie that should be playing somewhere on cable all day today. There should be a Con Air marathon for this. My daddy is coming home on July 14th. My birthday is July 14th.

I'm going to see my daddy for the first time ever on July 14th. There's something great about Con Air. Face Off has a little bit of this too and they were like kind of similar eras, right? Yeah, mid-ish 90s. But there's something that Markovitch puts it over the top because Cage and even Travolta, I'm not saying that they're not serious actors but like, you know, they were just doing themselves, right? But like to bring John Markovitch in who's got all these like, you know, acting pedigree but to play the crazy dude in Con Air, I don't know. There's something about that movie where like it embodies, it's not Sharknado so bad it's good, right? But there is an element of like, what am I watching?

You know, like what is this? And just harking back to also when like summer blockbusters, before we had Marvel movies, there were just a crop of summer blockbusters that were marketed like Marvel movies which is like, this is a movie that you are going to see. We're going to put some names in it. We're going to have a trailer with some crazy explosion or something that you're like, wow, I got to go see that, I guess. And we're all just going to go, regardless of whether it's good or not, we're just going to hand over our money and take, you know, a two hour break from the 95 degree heat and go sit in air conditioning and watch these movies. 80s felt like they were making great summer blockbusters. Late 90s felt like they still expected the money from summer blockbusters but they didn't care if they were good or not.

They just had to be something that fit the bill of the summer blockbuster. And that's what Con Air felt like. Even though Con Air may be 2000s, I can't remember. That was 90s. It's either late 90s or early 2000s. That's kind of a... 97.

There we go, 97. Man, great cast though. Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich, Danny Trejo is in it, Ving Rhames, John Cusack. Yeah, Cusack. I mean, again, it was...

I don't know how to explain it. All of those guys would have just turned them into Avengers. Like, oh, Malkovich could have been a bad guy. Malkovich could have been Loki or whatever.

You could put them all in there. Cusack would have been... Iron Man. No, no, no. Cusack would have been Paul Rudd.

Aint Man. Yes, yeah, exactly. Like, and then there would have... I'm trying to think who... Nick Cage definitely would have been an Avenger.

I don't know, probably. Maybe it would have been an Iron Man or whatever. But like, we weren't making Avenger movies but we were trying... most of the same elements of like big stars, put them in familiar looking roles. We needed a couple big time explosion fight scenes. We needed, you know, at least a story to bring it together. Somebody's comic relief. You know, the purple bunny that's in there that keeps popping back up. That's what these were.

These were Marvel movies before we actually had a Marvel universe to plug these pieces into. Con air. Good stuff. Adam Gold in studio with my friend Coach Pete DeRuta with the Capital Financial Advisory Group. We are talking retirement. Coach, how does longevity risk figure into our retirement and income plan?

This is the best of times and the worst of times, Adam. Longevity risk means we're going to live too long. But to me, every day I live is not too long.

Right, absolutely. So we want our money to outlive us. And unfortunately, many people have seen, you out there listening, maybe one of them, your money is not designed to outlive you. You might outlive your money and that's not what we want to have happen.

Cus when we get to that day after you run out of money, it's not going to be a fun time. So let's design a plan that guarantees you'll never run out of money. We call it the GPI Plan.

Growth Protection Lifetime Income. For the next ten people, this is a golden ticket, Adam. A thousand dollar value, we're going to do it at no cost or obligation. And all you have to do is call. We make it so easy.

Would you like financial independence into your retirement? And beyond it, 800-661-7383. That golden ticket is a one thousand dollar value.

Or you can text Adam to 21000 for Coach Pete DeRuta. I do know that this is, or I'm pretty sure, this is David Bowie. But I have not yet grasped the theme of today's songs, if there is one. Is there a theme? Not really. Okay. So I don't feel bad. No.

Well, last hour I did stuff from Clerks. Yes. And then this I decided to do, Moonage Daydream, based off of the topic you're about to discuss. Okay. Oh, gotcha. Good tie in there.

Sometimes you've got a whole collective theme for all the songs that I didn't know if there was something- I've kind of broken it down by hours. Okay. Gotcha. Excellent.

One of the big pieces of news this week that everyone's talking about and now turning into memes online are the pictures coming from the James Webb Space Telescope. Now, I'm not asking you this for any loaded answer or to try and set up my next bit on radio. I truly ask your opinion, so I hope you will give me your honest opinion.

What was your reaction when you saw these pictures, Dennis Cox? I haven't really looked at them. Okay.

That's fair. And I've heard some interviews with people who like worked in space their whole life or work on this project, like 20 years ago they began building this telescope and this is the first sort of fruits of their labor to come back. So those people totally get their excitement, right? They are fully invested in the project.

There are other people who I'm less sure if their excitement is as genuine or sincere. Basically, we're getting these pictures. The first one we saw was like, think of an all black square picture and then just light, lots of little pieces of light, different color, some like bright or whatever, but you know, all different all over the screen. That was the first one we got and people were like, this is amazing.

Look at these pictures that we're getting from the James Webb telescope. I've never seen anything like this. This is unbelievable. I think my favorite meme I've seen from that one is the person who, and again, the memes, you knew they were going to be good.

They are indeed good. Again, it looks like just a black square and then some pictures, pieces of light, all very colorful in it. If we're blown up and put over the couch in your living room, it might look like a cool piece of art. The best meme I've seen is somebody who, you know, when you do a picture on a graphic and you're trying to, like a map, for example, if you're trying to say, all right, this map is representing this area and you make it a little bit bigger than it is.

I'm not describing this well for radio, nor am I using my hands well to do it for video. But basically there's a picture of a kitchen counter and then a graphic trying to show you as if they had cut a square out of said kitchen counter and held it up to you so you could see what's on the counter. Basically saying that first picture that was sent back from the James Webb telescope and released looks like it could easily be just the design on my marble kitchen countertop, right?

And that's kind of the point I'm going with this. Now, we have gotten some other ones and I've read of what they mean. These are the cliffs of the, you know, something Earth. And they've got names, the Cantia, whatever, 35.

And some of them show like some history. We can apparently see now some evolution of some of our universe. And we're seeing things that are like difficult to grasp how far away it is, you know, and how big.

And it's not even like distance away. It's time away from us, right? So there's all this stuff locked up into how we as simple humans who 200 years ago, 200. When did we build electricity? When did we discover electricity?

Yes. You know, 200 years ago, we couldn't even like turn on the lights. A hundred years ago, we could barely fly.

200 years ago. Now we can, you know, discover all these universes and see how vast it is and literally like see it in its form. But I feel like some people are lying when they say how impressed they are by this.

And it's for this reason partly, right? The word awesome, like I overuse it, like, oh, man, that's awesome. That's great.

Awesome truly means like awe inspiring. Right. And when you think of like the concept of things of like the universe or. God and its actuality, like not that any religion or if you like, if you don't believe a God, the absence of God will pick whatever. I'm not trying to make this religious.

I'm just trying to think when you try and think of how was life created or what happens after our natural bodies die? What is, you know, what is the whole world mean? It is truly too great for my small, feeble human mind to comprehend.

Right. And I can think about it. I can read things. I can read philosophy.

I can choose a religion to read, see what they take about if they want. But that's kind of how I feel about these pictures from the James Webb Space Telescope is I'm not blown away by these pictures because I don't have any concept of what the universe should look like or any. I know this sounds stupid, but, you know, like when if you find a snake outside or a bug and you're trying to send a picture to your friend, you might put your shoe beside it and be like, oh, my God, look at this bug that's larger than my shoe. So there's context of like, oh, man, I see how big that that thing is. It's bigger than your shoe.

Or you lay down, you know. Something next to the snake that gives context to how long the snake actually is. Right.

Yeah. So I'm seeing these pictures of the vast mass of stars in the universe. But I can't fully grasp of how I get that you can explain to me like, well, our planet is just one little speck in the solar system and that solar system is one speck in this galaxy and that these are all these different galaxies like, you know, I can hear that and I can my brain can process it. But ultimately, I think the reason that these pictures don't blow me away is truly because they are beyond my level of comprehension. It'd be like if somebody said, hey, do you want to see the face of God? And they showed you a picture and it was, you know, whatever God looks like. But I wouldn't be blown away. Because I wouldn't have any concept of what the face of God is actually supposed to look like.

I'd be like, oh, well, that's just, you know. Now, if you showed me a picture of, you know, a person that was nine feet tall. Well, I've seen millions of people in my lifetime and the tallest ones I've seen max out at seven and a half feet. And even that is like impressive to see.

I've seen Sean Bradley in person. You're like, wow, that's crazy. So if you showed me a picture, if I saw a real with my own eyes, a nine foot tall person, I'd be like, whoa, that would blow me away because I have context for what a actual human shape should be. Even so, with some animals that I've never seen in person, but I've known to exist long enough.

And if I saw a giraffe that was, you know, as tall as a 30 story building, I'd be like, whoa, I can understand that is impressive. Or if you see a storm or, you know, something that wreaks have a hurricane that is blowing trees over, like you have concept for like, I've seen a windy day. Now I'm seeing wind that is literally knocking over trees. When I briefly lived in Wisconsin, right on Lake Michigan, first day I was there on Lake Michigan, two water shoots. I've never seen like a tornado or water shoot in my life. I have been in that state as a resident for 12 hours and all of a sudden the ocean is being sucked up to the heavens.

What is this? And so, yes, because you've experienced weather and seen wind and water like you and, you know, you've heard this explained to you. I'm sure it blew you away, but also like you could comprehend what was happening, right?

Yes. Even asking people, I said, how often this happened? And someone said, I've lived here for 15 years and I've never seen this before. So I'm not poo-pooing the significance of this. And I'm certainly not downplaying the work that went into or how important it is to learn about our universe. And it's also one of those. I mean, a lot of people like this, when you look at those pictures and you're like, yo, that's like 30 million of our planets or whatever the number is. There's a billion Earths in there. Then people are like, well, there's probably a plant growing on one of them at the very least, right? There's probably an amoeba somewhere in there.

That's a whole different conversation. Is that where Star Wars took place? Yes.

I'm a galaxy far, far away. Is that Tatooine? Yes. Is that Tatooine?

That's what I need to know. Is that Tatooine? So I'm not saying I'm not impressed with the human accomplishment that is able to, again, 250 years ago, we weren't able to turn on lights or fly. And now we have sent things into space that can go distances in time away from us that my brain can't comprehend and take and capture images and send them back to us. But like, just to see these pictures literally is too much for my brain to understand. And because of that, I'm not as impressed by them as I would be by something more simple or on this Earth.

Does that make sense? Yeah. And even when they tried to compare the Hubble telescope, I remember hearing about this growing up in high school. It was one of the things that you didn't even learn about the Hubble telescope that much. You just heard Hubble telescope jokes on Saturday Night Live or Letterman or whatever. So that's how you kind of knew it existed. And so now they'll be like, here's what the Hubble telescope picture was of the galaxy. And here's the new James Webb picture. And like people like, look at the amazing difference.

And I was like, did they did they just put the Paris filter on it like that? I mean, I can see that one's better than the other, but like it's just a little bit just a little bit brighter and clearer. And like, again, somebody would be like, that was 50 billion dollars and 2000 people working for 20 years to make that picture brighter. You better respect them.

I get it again. If you're invested in it, I'm not saying that you shouldn't be proud or that you didn't do impressive work. I'm truly saying my small brain is not quite big enough to comprehend what seeing the galaxy looks like. And because of that, I'm left slightly underwhelmed by these pictures. But the one thing that does impress me is the man, James Webb. And do you know why that is, Dennis Cox? Why is that? Because he is a hashtag pack pro. OK. That's right. James Webb.

Actually, he's not. James Webb's more immaterial. We have a tradition here of. Does anybody still know the hashtag pack pro joke? It went back to when Jalen Leque committed to NC State, then said he was going pro and State still was labeling him the hashtag pack pro.

So it was like, oh, just any connection we can make to State makes him a pack pro. But in this case, James Webb from Granville County, from a area listed as Tally Ho, North Carolina. You won't really find Tally Ho on record now on the map. It's sort of just like a township not far from Stem, North Carolina. Also very small, just a little bit north of like Butner and Creedmoor there in Granville County.

OK. He went to UNC, became dean of education, went to the Marine Corps Reserves, studied to become a lawyer just because it was like a smart thing to do. During World War Two, he was down at Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina. He's been all over the state.

Shout out Craven County. Then after he also just got interested in flying and learning about that stuff, even though he was the dean of education at UNC at one point after he graduated there. After Russia put Sputnik up, we were in almost like panic mode, like we've got to win the space race. He was appointed the head of NASA from 1961 to 1968. He took it from a fledgling organization to the force that it was. He resigned or he retired just before the a little bit before the space launch in 69 that went to the moon. But like basically he headed up NASA in the era where we went from watching Russia send a satellite up and being like, oh, no, we got to catch up to jumping in front of everybody and being the first people to land on the moon eventually in 1969.

And in that time, in 1965, James Webb from Granville County used to work at Cherry Point down there in Havelock, graduate of the University of North Carolina. He said, we need to develop a space telescope that can show us the universe. In 2002, that's how long it takes these things to develop. In 2002, they decided to name the next space telescope after him. They had the Hubble.

They knew that was going to work for a while. These things take a little while to create them, launch them, let them get to where they need to get, where they can get these pictures of the galaxy. So in 2002, they decided to name the next telescope after him.

And that's why we have proud North Carolinian James Webb Space Telescope, whose efforts I am impressed with and reflect the advancement of mankind, but whose pictures, unfortunately, I am too simple to be fully impressed with. Off of the crossbar, and the Hurricanes have won the Stanley Cup. 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 Canes Corner look at the 25th anniversary of the move, presented by the Aluminum Company of North Carolina.

Listen now to find Caine's 25th anniversary, wherever you get your podcasts. Twitter beef used to be a real thing, right? It was almost, Twitter beef now is almost not worth it. There's too much media on Twitter.

Everybody's there. If you beef, if you're a big enough person, if you're the Tom Brady of the world or whatever, and you get an actual beef with somebody, then it's going to launch 10,000 blog posts, some SportsCenter stories, it's just not worth it. Back in the day, when there was only a few athletes from each sport, because a lot of them were like, I don't have time for Twitter, there weren't that many media.

Certainly there were only media individuals, not like whole brands on Twitter. You might actually get, you know, Darren Ravel put a report out about, oh, so and so was looking for more money and so they went to a new team. And that athlete might come on and be like, your report's crap.

We weren't looking for more money. You don't know what you're talking about. And all of a sudden Ravel might be like, well, no, I talked to an agent, whatever. Like you get, oh, Twitter beef, it's on, right? Now more and more, it's just not worth it for the biggest people to get involved in Twitter beefs, right? Like your brand is just going to get dragged down.

It's not worth to opening yourself up to. So most people just keep it light, keep it breezy. Maybe you do a dunk on tweet that, you know, even that is a little bit like, I'm just trying to make a joke, but I'm not actually like, ah, nothing personal or whatever. But now my man Lamar Jackson, who he's one of those dudes who, I don't especially see him as like a beefing guy, but he seems like a very authentic guy. I don't think he's trying to act any certain way. I think he's just being Lamar Jackson. And this randomly started where Bernard Pollard Jr., former safety for the Ravens, and I don't even know if he works for an outlet. Is he a Baltimore sports radio go?

I don't know. But he tweets, no top wide receiver will ever come to Baltimore while Lamar Jackson is there. Plenty of wide receivers have been available in the offseason. LJ has been starting.

Nobody wants to go. They give him the respect, but they don't want to play for him. He's good, but he's not able to make all the throws. Lamar Jackson responds, you've been capping since I've been playing for the Ravens. I've never heard of you, to be honest, my boy.

You got Super Bowl because of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed that year. Then Bernard replies, they're still both using crying emojis. Like they're laughing like, hey, this isn't real beef.

Like I'm kind of messing with you. Bernard says, facts are facts. Make sure you call me champ. Good luck getting one. Lamar doesn't really take that peace offering, says, never, nobody speak of you. I had to Google you, little bro. I never heard of you until I seen you keep dissing like you was a Hall of Famer, but you are far from it.

Like ocean, like across overseas, you far from it. Stop flagging. They never said you was feared. Go watch NASCAR. Probably better at that.

Anyway, I just appreciated Lamar Jackson not soft peddling anything, fully going into it. If you're going to Twitter beef, that's the way to Twitter beef. With the few minutes remaining. Just don't do it while Twitter's down.

That's right. I wonder if Twitter beef cut the, I wonder if Twitter being down cut the Twitter beef short. Did you post the video of me not showing up on top? Why are you going to do that? Why are you going to make me look bad?

Thought about maybe having a Twitter beef. Fair enough. With the little time remaining, we have just enough time to decide if things are overrated, underrated, or properly, rightly rated. This is rightly rated. Boo! I think we've been overrated.

I think they've been underrated. Sure, sure. It was the wrong button for you to boo me. You made me look bad. Like people are going to think that I just showed up for the show at like 12 o'clock and 30 seconds. Instead of being here, taping interviews before the show, and then just merely running out to my car and lingering a little too long in the lobby talking to Jesse before I got here for the show. I mean, all your stuff was on the desk, so people could see that.

That's true. I had somebody text me, I need to bring back the oversized laptop. You know what I'm talking about? Oh, your desktop computer? Your laptop computer? Because somebody was watching the stream and they were like, I love it, Permar.

All you got is your towel up there and some shades. They couldn't see that I've got actually two different screens that I'm working off of. Because when you don't have a laptop in front of you, it looks like you're not working. Permar, you're just winging it. Love it. And I'm like, no, no, no, no, no. I've got multiple screens here in front of me. I'm working it, okay?

I need to bring back the extra large laptops so that people know that I've got notes in front of me. First up on Rightly Rated, Finland. Is Finland overrated, underrated, or rightly rated? This comes up. And there's no audio, sorry.

I put the tweet in there so you could see it. So I'm just going to have to describe this to you. Finland, somewhere in Finland there's a baseball stadium where about ten feet right of the first baseline, running parallel to the first baseline, there is a creek. I mean a river. So there's a video going viral yesterday where a guy makes a diving play towards the foul ball line, the first baseline, diving to go get a ball, and he just slides right through and into the river. But the amazing part about it is that it switches camera angle to a camera situated on the river that you can't see the baseball field from that camera. So in my mind, the only reason to place that camera in that position is to catch people falling off the baseball field into the river. So you know it's a problem, much like we've got bridges and overpasses that are too low here in the Triangle area, one famously in Durham. The Greg Street Bridge starts with a G. It's like ten foot eight or something. Then we've got the P Street Bridge in Raleigh, they catch trucks all the time. If you put a camera on there, you're merely trying to catch people getting crushed, not actually trying to help the problem. So same with this camera. I just found it hilarious.

People are continuing to film people falling into this creek instead of just putting up some netting or something that would prevent it. All that leads up to is Finland overrated, underrated, or rightly rated. They gave us Sebastian Ajo, underrated. I knew you were going to go the Canes angle.

They gave us not only Sebastian Ajo, several other Canes. Ante Ranta? Yeah. There's another one. Yesperi Kocanemi.

All Finns. All right, and finally on rightly rated, Ham is ham, overrated, underrated, or rightly rated. This comes up because Ham's Restaurant, the final one, closing down.

I forget where the final one was, but I saw a picture of it. There used to be Ham's in, I know, Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Fayetteville, Boone, New Bern, maybe, Ham's was an institution. I guess maybe it was pre-Carolina Alehouse, but it just had that vibe of like, I may not be getting the number one meal, but I know exactly what they're going to serve. They're going to serve beer, they're going to serve burgers, and the game's going to be on, right? Like, that was kind of Ham's.

It was casual, good enough. Again, I mean, they had one on Franklin Street. Ham's, I say this in Twitter, I'm not doing the, oh my god, I can't believe Ham's is gone, how will we ever live? I'm not weeping necessarily for the loss of Ham's, but I tip my cap and I say, you had a nice run, Ham's. Is Ham overrated, underrated, or rightly rated? I think rightly rated. Um, Ham, maybe I'm saying slightly overrated, because I recently had a past, a death in the family, and I live in the South.

So everyone brought Ham biscuits and Ham, so I'm a little over Ham, but overall it's probably rightly rated, just currently I'm overrating it a little bit. This is the Adam Gold Show.
