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'm not sure you're aware of this, but NC State is headed to Clemson to play the Tigers. I have not heard that. It does feel like a big game to me. I could be wrong. Feels like a big game. I know we have multiple conversations about this tomorrow. We have been sprinkling it in all week.

Part of me wonders if state fans are just like, let's play the game already. I said it on Monday, going to be a long week. Still have two full days. Now the rest of today, 1 o'clock, we ain't done yet. We ain't done today. All day tomorrow. And then you got all day Saturday because it's a prime time game. By the way, really good weekend of ACC football with Wake playing at Florida State at 3.30 in front of the Wolfpack and Tigers at 7.30, both games nationally televised on ABC. All right, we do this. It is a listener choice.

This is simply a poll question today. Yesterday, Aaron Judge in Toronto tied Roger Maris for the American League home run record, single season home run record with 61. He missed by a day, by a game, of going past Babe Ruth, maybe it was two games, going past Babe Ruth because Ruth did his 60 in a 154 game schedule. Worth pointing out because Maris, who nobody wanted to break Ruth's record, did it in the final game of the season that year.

And there was a there was been an asterisk because 162 game season versus 154 game season. With that said, assuming that Judge hits one more home run, which would give him 62 and put him ahead of Maris. He will have the American League single season home run record of 62. Nobody's hit more than that. We have had 60 home run seasons before. We had Maguire hit 70 and Sosa hit 66 in 1998. Barry Bonds has the record of 73 in 2001. So I asked had Victoria ask and I retweeted the question, assuming Judge does this, who is the home run king for a single season? Is it Barry Bonds? It's 73. Aaron Judge with would be 62 or more.

919-860-5326. We do have Twitter responses that I will get to. All right. I know this is going to sound too simplistic and there is a larger conversation to be had with the impact of performance enhancing drugs in the sport. And there's also nuance within performance enhancing drugs, because as a lot of people will point out, amphetamines were a thing for a long time. Not just in baseball, but in sports.

So there's that factor as well. Amphetamines are different than steroids. There's no strength building that amphetamines allow. The I will just say the apologists, the apologists say, well, there's no proof that steroids work.

Really? Then why do people take them? Why do bodybuilders take them if there's no proof they work? There must be at least anecdotal evidence.

So let's stop with that. Also, apologists will say, well, the best thing about steroids is that they allow you to maintain heavier workouts because they aid in recovery. That is true.

They do. And that's why a lot of times garden variety people like you and me will be given steroids to aid in recovery from injury illness. It's not quite the same. It's not an anabolic steroid, but some people are prescribed anabolic steroids to recover from injury and illness. And there's human growth hormone, too.

OK. But that's not what we're talking about here. And it's used because it does both.

It does aid in muscle development and it does aid in recovery so you can go harder the next time. Which, by the way, that hard work is not lost on me. That's work put in.

Yeah. Barry Bonds had to do work. You don't just inject into your bicep or rub a cream on your legs and the muscles form. You still need to do the work, but they allow you to do the work.

They allow you to do more work, which we can have a debate over whether or not that's fair or not. Nine one nine eight six zero five three two six. But with all of that said, and knowing that Bonds was a steroid user and Maguire and Sosa were both steroid users, it's not even a dispute. Alex Rodriguez twice, twice caught steroid user. Manny Ramirez twice caught steroid user. The record is seventy three. I mean, if you choose to denigrate the player, I got no problem with that because it is a black mark on the sport that we all know that Bond seventy three was. I'm not saying that he hit seventy three because he was doing steroids because I don't know how you prove that you can't.

Right. I just don't know how you prove that he still had to put bat to ball. So I just don't know how you say seventy three, because because I will say this. Aaron Judge, had he not slowed down and not homered in each of the last seven games, Aaron Judge is at sixty one now. And if he hits a handful more, it's three more between now and the end of the season. And the total number is sixty four.

That ain't far from seventy three. So what you're saying is that Judge is this much better than Bonds? Bonds career high before we think he started using steroids was forty seven.

Right. Back in the 80s, I think it was the early 90s, 1993, I think was the year he was a three time MVP before he got to the Giants or before he started using steroids. And for most people believe, and I think this is the the research has kind of bears this out, that Bonds didn't start using until Maguire and Sosa staged that summer to remember. And Bonds, who was the best player in the game at the time, was pissed because, wait, why are these guys getting all the pub?

Maguire is the one trick pony. All he is the home run hitter. Sosa, he ain't that good either, according to Bonds.

I think all three should be in the Hall of Fame. Yeah, but the Bonds just said, you know what, I'm going to do this. Sure. Wasn't against the rules at the time. Well, it was against.

That's the misnomer. It was against the rules. If you were found to have used steroids, there was a banishment. You were going to be suspended. And Faye Vince at the commissioner at the time sent out a a letter to all teams. Steroids are still illegal. But there was no drug testing, so there was no provision to suspend and punish players for using.

So it became difficult. Adam Golden Studio with my man Coach Pete DeRuder with the Capital Financial Advisory Group. We are talking retirement. Coach, let's say I have more than a million dollar balance in my 401k. Congratulations.

Thank you very much. How can that actually come back and bite me? Well, because, and this is a thing that we, it's a mirage. You see mirages.

I've ridden in the desert before. You see what's water ahead, but it's not there. Well, your financial mirage is thinking that that total balance in your 401k or your IRA is yours. We have two people that want to get a hold of it. Two uncles.

Uncle North Carolina and Uncle Sam. Both of them are going to do some damage to that balance, depending on what kind of other income you have. You could lose 40% of your value.

So if you're looking at a million dollar IRA, maybe it's only worth $600,000 to you. So how do we get around this? Well, you don't get around it because you end up in jail if you try to do that. But you can do tax planning to minimize the effect of taxation into the future. The tax train is coming, Adam. We need to make sure to minimize the effect of the derailment of our financial accounts. And for the next 10 people, we'll do it at no cost or obligation. Put together your very own tax and retirement plan.

800-661-7383 or text Adam to 21000 for Coach Pete DeRuder. We don't have to like it. But Barry Bonds is the home run record holder.

And that is just the reality. And maybe it's good that baseball has to deal with it. Paul from Durham. Paul, what's going on? Hey Adam, I'm a long time listener. Great show. I'm glad you're discussing baseball.

Yeah, we got a good weekend ahead too. Yeah, so listen, there is some data that Bonds might also have been using growth hormones. Because the size of his head, the diameter and the size of his hands also got larger.

Wait, wait, I've never heard about the size of his hands. I don't know that it makes your bones grow. Yes, it does. It makes your bones grow at 36? Can steroids make me taller?

I need that too. Seriously, like I don't know that it makes your bones, I don't think it makes your bones grow. Actually, we're losing Paul here. Oh, can you hear me?

Now we can hear you. The head because there's muscles around the head. No, it's the actual bones. The bones actually get bigger.

I've never heard that. What I think is they need to be correct. So probably Aaron Judge is going to get the American League home run record. But probably those guys in the National League, they need some asterisk after their name. Stating that this was the era of performance enhancing.

But again, there's just no quantifiable way. Then you're putting an asterisk on the entire era. You're not putting an asterisk. And by the way, we don't really know when that era started. But you're putting an asterisk on the entire era, not on individual records. You're just saying that everything from nineteen eighty six through nine to two thousand and five, that everything in that 20 year span is tainted. And that means we're tainting a lot. That means we're tainting Jeter. That means we're tainting players like that. And then we go, well, well, he didn't use. We don't know. And that's my we don't know.

My issue with all of this is that it's unquantifiable and there's no way to get around that. Paul, I appreciate your call, man. Take care. OK. Nice talking to you. Good work. Thank you very much. I had not heard that.

I might need some confirmation that anabolic steroid use makes your bones bigger because. Like I could do like I'd love to be five, ten. I'm thinking about it now. I'm thinking about five, ten.

How long a cycle do I have to be on to become five, ten? And where do I rub it? Do I say that again? That's a good question. I need to know these answers. So do I rub it on my head to get taller?

Do I rub it on my feet to get? I need to know. All right, let me go to JP and Wilmington. JP, what's up? Hey, how's it going, man?

Let's go. Well, I agree with you. You know that bonds and bonds and so so them should be in the holiday. And I kind of think that this situation that where it's just a wait and see situation now, how MLB, how they play their cards with it, you know? Well, Major League Baseball doesn't control that.

You know that. Well, with the decision whether or not they're going to honor whether or not they're going to say that that judges has the record now. No, well, that would be a major league decision, but they're not. Yeah, they're not taking bonds out of the record book.

Aaron Judge has the record. They're not. Now, if they would have already done that, then we're going to see if they do the asterisk that people are saying. And if they don't, then then I think that it's only a matter of time that those guys do make it in the whole thing. Maguire and Sosa no longer on the ballot. I think bonds is off the ballot, too. So I swear I saw Barry Bonds was on doing an interview the other day.

He might be on the ballot for one more year, but I think he and he was saying that he's still hopeful that he could get in. Well, no, there's other there's other avenues, veterans committees and things like that. All right. I appreciate your call, JP. This is a problem. You just save a fun conversation.

All right. I have to take a very good friend of mine is calling in my friend, Ernie. Ernie, how are you?

How are you? This is you're talking baseball. We are talking baseball. We're going to talk basketball here in a minute, but we're going to talk baseball.

That's fantastic. No, I just you know, I know growth hormones and all that stuff, you know, that should be for old people, not for baseball players. But I was looking at the bracket for the National League. And if my Cardinals win out, either the Phillies or the Brewers in the wildcard game, we play the Mets or the Braves.

We're we're we are not counting any chickens. Mets still have to win the division. Cardinals. Oh, yeah. Come on. Come on, Adam. The Mets are going to win the division. Come on. From from your mouth to Buck Showalter's office at Truist in Atlanta. The Mets need to win if they can win two of those games.

I think it's a wrap, but they still have to win those games. Well, you know what? I'm Rudy. Well, let me not say anything because when I root for certain teams, they lose. Don't say anything.

Your wishes come true. I'm not going to say thank you very much. All right, Adam. I love your talking baseball. You can continue talking to the end of the playoffs. I love it. It's coming. Thank you very much, Ernie.

I'll talk to you soon. So my friend Brian Geisinger, league pass layer, one of our crack NBA analysts. Let me ask this question. Aside from the unreliability of Kyrie Irving, let's just assume Kyrie is in a great mental state and Kyrie is ready to go for 82. Of course, he's going to get injured and miss probably 20. But let's just say plays 60. Are there 32 players in the NBA better than Kyler than Kyrie Irving?

No, they're not. And that comes with all of the defensive limitations of Kyrie Irving to the shot making. He brings to the offensive side of the floor is truly special. Like he and he is even among the amongst the crowd of sort of like lead guard shot creators, initiators in the NBA, in the world. He is among the best, among the most artful. Like any of the gripes with Kyrie Irving have nothing to do with, you know, his on court play when he's there. He's usually incredibly, incredibly good. Now, he's not like a top 10 player in the world, but he probably falls somewhere from, I don't know, 18 to 30, somewhere in that range.

And to be clear, the Zion note you just mentioned, like we can just keep it in the Duke brotherhood here. If he's right. Yeah, he's way better than the 40th whatever player. He's a top probably 12 to 15 player.

At least he was two seasons ago in a 20, 20, 20, 21 season. I am fascinated to see what what he's going to look like. Let me ask you about. I want to ask you about the Hornets.

But let me just ask you about a couple of other things real quick. Steve Nash, the head coach of the Nets. Still, we all thought that whole thing was going to blow up, but he is still the head coach of the Nets.

Well, it's fine. I'm not knocking it. I'm not saying he's a bad coach because I don't really know. He hasn't really had the full deck of cards that he was that he bought that they bought for for various reasons. He says he doesn't care if Ben Simmons ever shoots.

He's lying, right? I actually kind of think there's at least some kernel of truth to that. It's like they have enough shooting on this roster with Joe Harris back healthy Kyrie Irving. I've seen Kevin Durant, one of the greatest shooters in the history of basketball, Patty Mills. So there is some shooting on this roster, in fact, quite a good bit of it. And if you have Simmons as your de facto center or the one interior player that's also going to give you some ball handling on offense, then it is OK if he's not shooting from outside the floater zone or outside the paint. It will become tough, though, if they're going to be some lineups for Brooklyn that include both Ben Simmons and Nick Claxton. Like they're they're probably not going to be able to close games with those guys if Simmons continues to be just like a net negative in terms of his shooting output. But at this point, Gold, considering the fact that Simmons hasn't played an NBA game.

And I mean, we're getting close to 18 months now. I think at this point, you're just hoping that he can get on and get you know, can he be 80, 90 percent of he was all NBA in 2020. Right. He's one of the best perimeter defenders in the world. So I think that's really what you're hoping is the rim pressure in the perimeter defense. And if you can give you some screen role playmaking, you live with that.

Any shooting on top of it is gravy. It will create issues for them in some of their lineups, though. The lack of shooting with Simmons and likely Nick Claxton. And the way I look at it and you we have had many conversations about my view of Ben Simmons and whether I'm right or not. And I believe that if you are going to be part of a big three with Kyrie and Kevin Durant and maybe we don't need three anymore.

Maybe it's just two and everybody else is complimentary that that would be a fair response to that. But if you're going to be playing heavy minutes for a team that is that has designs on winning an NBA championship, and I'm not sure that there's a more talented team than the Brooklyn Nets when it's all said and done. But if you're going to be on that court for thirty five to forty minutes a night, especially in the playoffs, if you are an unwilling shooter, then you're playing four on five offensively. Yeah. Yeah.

I mean, it's a huge it's a huge concern. I do think the the sort of like the brilliance and the shop making of Durant and Irving helps offset that a little bit. Who knows?

Maybe fingers crossed. T.J. Warren is healthy this year for them. And you've got another sort of like bucket getter on the perimeter that could score at a bunch of different levels. Harris Harris. And there's actually some maybe De'Ron Sharp takes a step forward in the center rotation.

He probably will. You've got to remember, we've got Alondis Williams on a on a two way contract with Brooklyn, too. So there's some fun tobacco road connections between Brooklyn. And it's not just the ACC tournament at Barclays Center. They've been scouting the ACC as well, clearly. But but I do think the main thing is it's the playmaking, the connecting the Simmons in transition where he has say what you will about him. He's always as limited as he is in half court in those he gets technically usually gets sort of like fades as the playoffs go along when he is on postseason teams. But the transition game has always been there. The defense has always been there. And I think if Brooklyn can just if they can land in the ground of being a competent playoff team that gets pretty good production out of Ben Simmons, it's maybe still falling short of where you would imagine a big three of Kyrie Durant and Simmons could have landed you in, you know, say twenty nineteen or twenty eighteen or something like that.

But given what the last couple of years have been like for Brooklyn, I think you would I think you would actually be pretty happy with that, especially after this type of offseason. The one thing I do want to say about Simmons and I think this gets lost in some of the Simmons at center discourse is that, yes, it makes sense offensively for him to play center. And certainly he can guard some centers and some power forwards in the NBA can pretty much guard every position type. But what Simmons does best is not protect the rim defensively. His best stuff is guarding twenty eight feet from the rim. So I think a lot of people keep saying they're going to keep falling back on Simmons at five. That's Brooklyn's best line. I agree.

But it is not like a defensively. You Simmons may be in some situations that are sort of where he's not optimized necessarily. So I do think that's one other thing to consider as his Brooklyn team goes forward.

All right. Celtics have had a tumultuous last few weeks in Mayudoka, one of the best coaches in the league is certainly in the second half of last year as Boston went bananas and ended up in the NBA finals. So he's gone for the year, may never return.

What is that impact? Oh, man, it's tough to say. Like, I think it's one of those things where I think this team has enough on paper, if healthy. And if which at this point isn't even an if because they're they're decidedly not healthy, but where they could just say, like, OK, we've got the infrastructure in place. We've got you know, we're returning our top eight from a season ago on the team that had the best net rating in the league and came within, you know, a couple of buckets. Basically, of beating Steph Curry in the NBA finals. Like, we're good.

Let's go in something like this could be weathered, at least in terms of the locker room. Like, you know, it's one of those things. I'm sure you've talked about this on your show. It's tough to sort of like address the situation with you, Doka, because there is so much unknown still. Right. And so I do try to tread a little bit lightly around those types of things. But if we're just talking about like the on court play, it's like I think they could.

I think they for the most part, they can't handle it. What I worry about gold is the injury to Robert Williams, who is a defensive all defensive team, defensive player of the year type candidate, a total game changer with what he does defensively, how the Celtics deploy him defensively. He's going to miss the next couple of months. Can Al Horford at age 30, whatever, give you another type of season like that? Like they really lean on him pretty heavily last year. And now you've got Danilo Gallinari, who's going to miss the entire season with an ACL injury.

So get ready to see Sam Houser get minutes for formerly in Virginia, get ready to see Luke Cornett get minutes. Those are the things I worry about elite again in terms of like what's happening on the court, then in terms of as opposed to, you know, how's this team going to respond to Joe Missoula, you know? So again, I think you certainly miss someone like you, Doka, because I do think coaching does matter to an extent. It's tough to measure how much it does. So therefore, it's sort of tough to answer a question like this. How many wins is it going to cost them? I'm not entirely sure.

What I do worry about more, though, is this hanging over the top of a team that's now dealing with injuries to some of its key and best players. Joe Missoula, by the way, is, I think, a jazz guitarist. I've got I've got a couple of his albums somewhere in the attic. Final thing for Brian Geisinger. You can follow him on Twitter at big guys underscore Bird League pass layer our NBA analyst. So the Hornets went back to the future. Steve Clifford is the he is the head coach. I like I thought Steve Clifford was a good coach when he was here.

But I also didn't mind the guy they just had. I don't know what they're doing. Where is this organization right now? Are they kind of like floating out there sort of without a rudder or are they in? Are they kind of pointed in the right direction? The goal. We don't have enough time to get into every single aspect of it.

We'll say those we'll say maybe some of those conversations fully for off air. But right now, I do think Steve Clifford is a good head coach. James Brego, the former coach, a good head coach.

Yeah. And let's not forget that last September, literally 12 months ago, James Brego received a contract extension. Um, in nine months later, six months later, he was he was gone after another sort of disappointing result in the play in game. Um, it's tough to say that this team really has a direction other than theoretically build it up around LaMela ball.

So there is still some tentpole here, right? Like you have a guy that just turned 21. He's probably a top 3040 player in the NBA. He's getting better. And he's made his first all star roster at age 20.

So it's like, you're not completely in the dark, right? You're not wandering the wilderness of the NBA, like they were in the years before LaMelo land landed in Charlotte. But you're looking around at the roster right now. And look, especially after the crimes that Miles Bridges committed this offseason, there's really there really isn't another active, young superstar that's on this roster currently. There's some good young players like I like PJ Washington a lot.

I think he has the chance to have a big season. Mark Williams is going to be a good player, but like they traded away the 13th pick a couple months ago at the draft Jalen Duren to Detroit, so they could dump salary, theoretically max out miles bridges in that that that went, you know, that got blown up a couple of nights later. So does this team have a direction?

I think yes, to an extent, because LaMelo ball is one of the best young basketball players in the world. And I think Mitch Kupchak has is like a solid GM. And there are some good young players on this roster. We'll see what James booknight does this year. We'll see about Kai Jones. We'll see about JT Thor Cody Martin just got an extension. So the cover, it's not completely bare, but this is going to be one of the worst teams in the Eastern conference this season. And it just sort of depends on do they bottom out and get a top whatever pick and maybe have a shot at getting scoot Anderson or Victor women Yama, or do they end up as always between picks eight and 12 right now, which is just like seems like that's where they're headed for once again this year. It's amazing like that.

Aside from the LaMelo pick, they always end up in that range. Yeah. So is there a direction? Theoretically? Yes.

But I do think at some point, they're going to have to be a little bit more firm about are they building up for now around the mellow or long term around the mellow and then go from there because they do need to add more good young players around them. If they're actually going to do this thing, right? Yeah, I don't know. Again. I don't have as much faith as you do.

Maybe in some of the people down there that they're going to do this thing, right? Brian Geisinger at B guys underscore bird on Twitter league pass layer. My friend. Good to talk to you again. We will do it again soon. Sounds good. You guys be good. You got it. All right, let's let's do halftime. I'm excited.

All right, well, I'll kick things off as we know. I've been playing some Coolio music today because unfortunately, he did pass away yesterday at 59. They said he was at a friend's house in their bathroom. Still don't know what happened, but could have been a heart attack. So that's the latest thing.

Sorry to hear that rip Coolio, but we are playing your music today. That's it. The quick one for that one. Today, though, is onto a lighter note, National Coffee Day, and we know we both like coffee. And there are actually some places where you can get some free coffee or you buy something.

Yes. So in our area, Duncan, of course, Krispy Kreme. I was surprised at these two Burger King and Wendy's. I didn't even realize that they sold coffee. I don't know if I want to try.

Thanks. So I don't know. I mean, I guess, you know, if you want to go get a burger and then got great coffee at Burger King and Wendy's. But I think I'll stick with Frosty's. I'm not going there. No, no.

Well, I'm not going there even anyway, but I'm not going. I did a cup of coffee. Is there a Burger King around here? No, that's never been a phrase. I need some coffee.

Let's go to Burger. But I say the same thing. I know people rave about McDonald's coffee, and I'm not saying it's true. It's never hit me that way. So if I need a cup of coffee, it's not where I'm going. Yeah.

Although they have good drifters. Yes, exactly. Well, a lot of people will pick Duncan over Starbucks, which, by the way, Starbucks is not doing anything for today.

Who is dropping the ball there? They probably don't call it coffee. They probably they just they call it Starbucks.

They use fancy terms. I like both. Yes. Personally, I like both Starbucks and Duncan.

They are very different, incredibly different. And I mean, I would be able to tell you if a if coffee was from Dunkin Donuts in a second. Oh, really?

Yeah, absolutely. I like Dunkin Donuts. I kind of grew up in the Northeast. So I grew up with Dunkin Donuts. Not that I was drinking a lot of coffee when I was 13, but true.

Well, you never know. See, and I like my coffee looking like chocolate milk. So for me, if it's got stuff in it, like I'm good either way, it's fine. So I'll take it. I know.

True story. I can't do like just straight black coffee. One of these days, depending on the coffee, I will do.

I'll drink it black or I need sometimes I will use a little bit of cream, but I don't. I no longer put sugar in coffee. Now, ice coffee is a different story. Yes. If if we're if we're putting a little bit of sugar in coffee, it's a different story. If we're putting ice in it, then it needs to have some level of sweetness.

Yes. Doesn't have to be a lot, but it has to have some. I don't understand. Ice coffee that isn't now sweet. No, I just have a Diet Coke.

Yeah, well, I even go there. Exactly. Speaking of coffee on the same lines, you apparently live longer if you're a coffee drinker. So that's you know, plus it's got antioxidants and all that stuff. But yes, it says if you drink about two to three cups a day, which I kind of thought might be a lot.

No, it's good. So they're probably talking about six or eight ounce cups. Right. But kind of like my wine glass. We've had that conversation. Maybe doesn't have all the sugar either. So on to the next coffee thing.

This sort of this. OK, this really is national coffee. It is.

This is insane, though. It has nothing to do with coffee. So if you are thinking of getting engaged and your girlfriend is really big into pumpkin spice lattes, wait for it. They have made a ring that replicates pumpkin spice lattes. I am not making this up.

It actually looks like it. They have whipped cream shaped centered diamonds surrounded by white diamonds and orange sapphires are encased along the side of it. I'm not joking. I'm looking at this thing right now. I would never want this, but I'm sure there's something for everyone. And this will run you about eleven grand, though, for this ring.

Really? A pumpkin spice latte ring. Not something.

I mean, even more reason to not get it. I know. Could you imagine, though, if someone bought it for their girlfriend and the girlfriend really didn't want that ring and you're like, here, honey, I love you. Let's get married. Let's get married.

And then you have this pumpkin spice latte ring. Let's not. Let's let's not. Yeah. Keep your keep your 11 grand.

And last thing. So you might be feeling this, especially in the middle of the week. The average American spends about 10 years of their life in autopilot mode. Now, I had to look into this like what exactly they mean. It's basically just when you get into ruts, routines, rituals, and you just kind of go through the motions. Me, I drive forever because I also live in Canada. So, OK, I guess that could be it.

Yeah. Basically says that we spend about fourteen hundred hours each year, 27 hours a week, almost four hours a day, just in autopilot mode. So with that, it's National Coffee Day.

Go get your coffee, get your caffeine and like, let's do a new hobby today. How often do you miss the exit you are intending to get off? Let's just say the belt line or if you're on 40, how often do you miss an exit? Not often. OK, not which I don't have to take a lot of exits.

I just have to drive straight forever. Right. OK, me too. Well, I shouldn't say I don't miss a lot of exits. I do miss too many.

I don't know if it's a lot, but I miss too many. But I will often go past where I intend to turn. OK, because, as you say, autopilot. Yep. Sometimes my brain is thinking about other things.

Yes. And I'm driving and I'm paying attention to what I'm doing, but I'm not paying attention to the point where I'm not also thinking about something else. And so my son will go, hey, dad, weren't you supposed to turn there? And I will go, yes, I was.

Thank you very much. Yes, you're thinking two steps ahead. Now you're two steps behind. So now I'll turn right here and then we'll circle around. Now, if I have to get gas.

Yes, 100 percent. I will forget. And I'm like, oh, man, I got to go back now. Yeah, because I hate having to stop and get gas on the way home. One of those things. I don't like the who who likes to get gas any time.

Who likes it? Maybe if you're stopping to get coffee, then you have something to look forward to. But no, I didn't. In the northeast, the 7-Eleven coffee wasn't terrible.

Oh, well, it wasn't awful. We have 7-Elevens down here now, you know. I know there's one at the beach. There's one in Carolina Beach. They just opened a couple of them here around Capitol Boulevard, I think.

Really? A 7-Eleven? No, there is a 7-Eleven on Hillsboro Street, I think.

Yep, they're popping up. Oh, look at that. There you go. You can get your 7-Eleven coffee and Slurpee. It's Slurpees. Gosh, it's been 50 years since I've had a Slurpee. This is The Adam Gold Show.
