    Sorry I know this is random but it has been driving me nuts that I can't remember the guys name. He was claiming to be an insider but from what I remember it was BS.

    He was an older white guy, I think with white hair and kind of flashy. I thought his name was Burt or something like that. Please let me know, thanks!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

    I know this sounds ridiculous, but I've been unable to sleep for the past hour because I couldn't think of his name .

    I saw someone mention Burt Macklin, and that made me think of this guy, and I was going insane not being able to remember his name. Thank you so much lol.
