    During my re-listening to old Stern Shows, I recently heard Artie tell that story. According to Artie, it was due to his friends who devised a betting scam in which they would bet on a game that had already been played and they knew the outcome. I agree it was hilarious when Artie told it. But we all know how truthful Artie is.

    thinking about it now,

    if artie hadnt left the show for his drugs etc he might have been "turked" or would have been driven so crazy from the PC shit show that the show became that he would have done a "fuck this shit" and bailed on air. which would have been GOLD!

    I believe in the 80's the NHL had one early afternoon matinee game a week on a Tuesday. Also, maybe it was only between Canadian teams? Artie's buddy would put the bet in Tuesday night and collect on Wednesdays. Instead of doing it every so often, Artie's friend would do it every week and even parlay it with other games for thousands of dollars. Eventually, the bookie got wise.

    Oh yes. It's one of the seven or eight stories he tells at least three times a week on his podcast.

    My friend's dad was a bookie and had a similar story. I'm not sure if it was his action or some other bookie's. But there were some Chinese guys who would be at the track somewhere. They would call in the bet as soon as the race ended. This was back in the 80s or 90s before everyone had cell phones and internet on their phones. Somehow they got away with it for a while. Ha.

    Pretty sure the Marcy was hired after the ratings drop that occurred after Artie left.

    I didn't find that story funny at all.

    It always felt to me that Artie made the whole thing up.

    I guess not many people were betting NHL games in Jersey in the late 80's.
