We're behind the locker room. Underneath the stands there's asbestos on the wall with -- years and years gone only remembered. Bring back on -- -- -- novel -- will people get lost forever. Differently can refine this is definitely health care concern during this interview room glamour. Both about harder Harvard Pilgrim Health Care that's. Very very good that's why he's probably -- to -- -- the sponsor. However it's probably not more or less pleasant than last night watching the watching them unfold. There's a natural thing that happens generally. Where when you -- you jump shots guys are going inside but whatever that click is anything no I didn't and -- with that stuff. One a lot of times when that happened this. Either you're forced to jump shots you know I have failed last -- -- hitting great shots and you know you and drivers and posted but you know -- -- forty feet wide open. Just enter executable and we just shoot him with a missing it. Is there any element to where I was his same thing on the plane but playbook in the percentage of Cleveland. Was there any element to that sort of decision making about not going inside not having him. You probably were somewhat and I'd also a lot of the passengers were off target. You know they would -- where you catch and shoot I thought. A lot of -- first -- -- -- and -- -- -- -- reports that the department well we surprised by effort wise we surprise announcement.
