John Blaise and Uncle Paulie
We’ve been friends since the 5th grade. So that’s over 30 years. Through that time we’ve done pretty much anything and everything that two friends would do together. Traveled, gone to sporting events, watched sports, gambled in casinos and on sports, went to bachelor parties, seen friends get married and have children, and partied like rock stars together. We’ve had our share of disputes, there were periods of time we didn’t speak to one another but we always wound up finding a way to bury our differences. We’re brothers.
We decided to do what we do because we’ve been playing, watching, gambling, and discussing sports almost our whole lives. We developed knowledge of the games and more importantly, knowledge of the gambling aspect of sports through our own victories and bad beats. We’ve even kept journals of certain team trends that don’t seem to change no matter who the players and coaches are. So instead of just talking about all of this amongst ourselves, we thought why not share with the world, or anyone who will listen in our own unique way. Thus spawn The Refractory Hour Podcast. And we’re going to see where it takes us. So jump on and enjoy the ride!
