Did you know you're always trying to sharpen your tools and hopefully that's what they're gonna do and if you never know you know like -- in the Minnesota game made a shot. And all of a sudden he had his confidence back. So maybe someone who is split okayed me she'll light you know -- that jurors that over into the playoffs that's all you can hope for. You live for.

It's become a big part of us I don't know when it happened when that connection happens but it Monday make you feel or think of yourself more information. More -- -- move up but you know I felt that way anyway where I was just so pro. The people are February message that there is an hour later to those. Driving trying to get home and all of a sudden you all this broke you just couldn't move and you saw. -- street in the suit tie -- track he was probably coming down into center. Going back to -- announce him street directing traffic. And he was doing it right where he was serious and -- -- -- this I was so proud of our people.
