Former Galleon trader turned Wall Street memoirist Turney Duff, he of "in an effort to create an alibi for skipping work, he faked a mugging by rolling on the pavement and into a puddle until he was bleeding and bruised" and middled aged escorts who say things like "If only I’d invested some of my money...then I could pick my clients and only hang out with guys like you," continues to share tales from the crypt.
One of the most outrageous things I ever did was to make it rain at Madison Square Garden...I was bored by the second quarter. I'd already made my rounds and was sick of talking about the biotech sector and the usual chit chat. So I peeked over the balcony to see where the real fans sat. I pulled a wad of cash out of my pocket, plucked out a five-dollar bill and released it over the balcony. "What are you doing man?!" Johnny asked. It floated down onto the right should of a woman wearing a Ewing jersey. She spotted it immediately, quickly looked around and then snatched it and shoved it in her pocket. We couldn't stop laughing. So, I start dropping a couple of one-dollar bills. Then $20 bills. It was raining money and the fans became animals! The entire section looked up — they were hungry for more. In a matter of minutes, I tossed $300 over the balcony as Johnny and Ethan cheered in between the Morgan Stanley raised eyebrows. The crowd had forgotten about the game — all eyes were on us. Then I started dropping $100 bills — people were boxing each other out better than the Knicks as the hundreds fluttered into their hands. $1,000 later, I was out of money.
