Rich: You might be able to gamble on sports as soon as football season. There’s some devil’s in details in here. I know there’s a lot of concern about whether or not college sports were going to be involved. It is to an extent you can bet on all college sports except for schools inside of Massachusetts unless they make a tournament and then you can bet on them. So if one of the local teams ends up making it to March Madness, you can then gamble on those teams. All pro is included as well. On top of that guys, no limit on where they can advertise. They did. Listen, just selfishly, that part’s pretty close down in dollars. Yeah. So the other details are there is no credit cards. You can’t use credit cards. You, of course, have to be over 21 years of age. There is a I think it looks like there there were seven different mobile carriers who got approval. Seven. So, I mean, pretty much it sounds like if you know of it and they’ve been doing it before in the past, you’re probably most likely going to be able to use the one that you’ve been using out of state. The the details about the tax on it are coming in. I’ve seen 20%. But this is real. And it looks like once again in the next couple of weeks, you could be able to go to the when the encore, you’ll be able to go to any of the places here and in Massachusetts and sit down and finally be able to gamble on sports, thank God, because this too. And it sounds to me because I know that, of course, the banker boys, they’ve been kind of bitching about, you know, this is not the bill that they wanted. This is not, doesn’t it? Well, this seems to be pretty much everything outside of that. One little caveat about the Massachusetts collegiate teams.
