To Be Or Not To Be.........RICH!

3/19/2013 2:45 PM

The leader of The Show With No Name, The Artist Formerly Known as The Outlaw Tommy Smith, said this morning that he thought LeBron James was the best player in the NBA.  Now that's not too earth shattering of a statement or stepping out on a ledge in itself I know. It's because Tommy would have had none of the King James talk a year or two ago. I remember The former T. C. Starr was one that thought LeBron a jerk for his "I'm taking my talents to South Beach" statement in July of 2010. I was only on the morning program, co-hosted by David Bazzel, for 5 months when that took place and was called down for my siding with LeBron Raymone James being able to make 'the decision'. That Tommy never ceases to amaze. I've know Tommy now for about 20 years or so and I'm starting to think there is a method to his madness.

Another thing that came up was the talk of rich versus poor. Tommy and I grew up in what was or would be considered, by rich people that is, as poor. David on the other hand, does not yet accept the fact, that as a youngster, he had a privileged background. This is open to debate and we will continue the friendly ribbing of each other. Especially since it's 2 against 1. One thing that is a difference between the two had to do with cars. David was given a car when he became the legal age to drive. I had to steal a car the year that I was old enough to drive. I sold that car to by a gun and held up a Brinks truck and got away with over $153,000.00! I wasted  nearly a quarter of it on clothes and candy. I was only 14 remember. The other half I buried underneath a gas station toilet in Las Cruces, New Mexico. It's still there as a matter of fact. The gas station, although a different name and larger, is still there. If I was rich I would have been smarter and invested that money instead of burying it. I've never told that story before and the only people that knew I did it have passed to Glory on High. It was 35 years ago this year. The statute of limitations expires in April. Fortunately for me now, I know David Bazzel. I will ask him to help me invest the cash. Gosh that feels good to get off my chest. With that money I will not have to eat ketchup sandwiches anymore. Unless I want to of course. 

Some state politicians came up to talk about a benefit basketball game this evening for Big Brothers Big Sisters. That's where we should invest.

Talk atcha in the mornin'.

Tommy, David, RJ, and myself thank you for listening and making The Show With No Name your #1 station!
