Gilberg or Goldberg?

Gillberg's only really funny as a short-term joke

Also I think Otani would get WAYYYY more than 150M. 150 doesn't even break Tanaka's record deal, which I think Otani would easily break 7 years/210M, for 30M a year.

More people die each year on drug overdoses than in mass shootings. Wouldn't banning drugs be an effective way to stop people from dying? Oh...wait...

Is Greene's suspension the most obvious sign of NBA trying to extend the finals? He should of been suspended in the Thunder series, not now.

What did you do for a living before you were able to write full time?

Consulted and invested.

Favorite board game?

Obviously not best, but I've still had the most fun playing Monopoly with real money.
1:22
And our expanded rule set that allowed very complicated trades.
Such as an options market.

Like if someone had 2 of the 3 reds, you could sell them the option to buy the third if you were to acquire it.
Or you could make a no-compete offer for if you landed on a property
Or sell in-game insurance for the risk of landing on a third party's property.

any Cornwallis dreams lately?
Dan Szymborski
1:23
I don't believe so.
1:24
This is my only dream involving Charles Cornwallis
"I applied for a small business loan to invest in a Dippin' Dots stand with Charles Cornwallis. He was very upset when discovering that the ice cream was kind of odd but I explained to him that it was the ice cream of the future. We ran the stand at the Aberdeen Ironbirds game and for some reason Nick Markakis was playing for the Ironbirds (rehab?) so the stadium had a Greek themed night so I wandered off to get some spanakopita but turned out that stadium spanakopita is not very good."

You're not one of those people who refers to "ATM machines," are you, Dan? The "M" stand for machine Dan. It's already there!
Dan Szymborski

Correct
There's no pin number either

Were you and Gleeman peddling smoked paprika? That stuff is worth a high seas adventure.
Dan Szymborski

I'm not sure if it was smoked - I type down everythning I can remember in the minute or so after I wake up

Your Monopoly statement - is this real? It sounds kind of intriguing. How does the real money work? All throw in and then adjust board values based on % of total wealth in the game?

You buy out the bank evenly among all the players.
1:25
With some kind of denominator
At the time, it was $15,140 so we would divide everything by 10.
So that we were only playing for $1,514 dollars.

After set time, everyone cashes in the money they have
and split the leftover money in the bank evenly.
