I don't know what to say about oh by the way you know here's a series sing you actually want to have a soccer become the next big sport or you think it is going to be there I'd like I'd like -- -- -- that the question which sport would you like to see yes sir I -- some more love -- expensive it's nowhere near tops my list I would take -- over that. I would like to see tennis returned to where once was I would like to see hockey obviously be a bigger deal nationwide unless it's huge -- -- drug we have a couple to couple last few years have gone to Ireland. Timer they're doing their big rugby championship. It's really fun to watch it's a little complicated what you figured out pretty fun but I like to see tennis get back to being a to -- where I was I was a kid.

Ortiz is I think we'll have to be I think I would personally like to see Manny Ramirez's number retired at. I understand the arguments against stop stop I think Manny Manny did not I don't Manny was beloved on those teams and I know it ended horribly.

There's so many guys I think. The great thing about the Red Sox you have you have tons of players over the years. We're deserving if you go with -- these beloved. Standards that you you've mentioned here. And we mentioned a modern day. We haven't mentioned one that Steve Buckley has been on the bandwagon for for years and years that Tony C -- so Tony C.
