I don’t like CNBC. The hosts nowadays just seem like smarmy douchebags that I would have zero interest in spending any time with in my back yard. But Mark Haines (the original host of Squawk Box) was different. He had “it” and spoke to guys like he was in the same boat as the rest of us.
I was sad reading about the anniversary of his passing today, and I thought it would be fitting to post a video of him letting an old-school trader on an old-school trading desk be funny… Not condescending… Not inappropriate… Just funny.
Rest in peace, Mark, and I hope your family takes solace in the fact That one I won close to $800 on you in my office dead pool.
