Which sport would you say per capita you know and it's all kind of based on the attendance at each game but. Which sport drinks the most beer which sports transitions. Baseball into exile more than hockey I'd I'd go hockey -- -- and I think you may -- he'd know better don't realize I would think so but. -- that would you might you know I've never done the per capita thing that's the hard part.

I mean that would be I think that -- we should look into. Well but I was just curious because you know I mean we obviously know. You know that with the traditions of the sports all the detail and and I guess in basketball it's a little more difficult you you know to get after receipt and go get a beer. Or they don't really bring them around is much either so -- baseball probably does make the most the most -- Patty is in the car patty Iran would Jim. I am I don't -- and can you wanna crack a cold.
