It’s that time again! The Weekend Gambling Guide! #WGG sorry I haven’t posted anything lately. I haven’t even watched Raw or Smackdown. I’ve been knee deep in podcast prep. Speaking of…

The Five Star Show is available on SoundCloud, Stitcher, and Tune In Radio. Search The Five Star Show. The show will be recorded on Friday and made available for you on Sunday. It’s a show about me. It will have variety. Sometimes it will be similar to the content you see here on the site. Other times it will be nothing like what you see here.

This week I am introducing a guest picker. As the site grows larger and the podcast takes off, I will have friends or celebrities to help make some picks. This week’s guest is my good buddy Jon Rich…not the country band guy. Jon is a coworker of mine at the day job. He’s an excellent salesperson, rock and roll expert, and his dad played in the NFL. I don’t know if that makes him a good picker, but we will find out.

I hope everyone enjoys Labor Day Weekend. I don’t understand the holiday since I work all weekend and Monday. Doubles on Saturday and Sunday. But I guess people with real jobs get to eat hot dogs and hop in the pool one last time. I don’t care as long as there is football! This opening weekend of college football isn’t as awesome as some previous seasons. That said, there are still some solid games on the docket.

The cover photo is my friend Adam Morelock. He passed away in a car accident. He was the punter and I was the long snapper for our high school football team. He was a great guy. He had a landscaping business that was featured on Property Brothers. Everything about him was just good. Rest in Peace my friend.
