Making Iran does that give you extra motivated seeing another team another fan base really getting into any kind of they've put little pressure on you guys to perform. Well I mean it I don't think she's -- whenever there's that you know a revolution we're about replenished view. That helped you -- You know there's really help us out well. I'd expect to get -- found that works better and that the people get behind it. Like these we. -- to 30000 people out there last week here and you know they've been there is the content. We appreciate when we think control and they do for a. And you guys have done a lot for them whether it be in the community. I'm going out and seeing people shaking hands and raising a lot of money and the Red Sox have rally the room Boston's strong. And obviously you've had a very strong connection with the events that took place this past April he talked a little bit about what that has meant to you and how things in your personal life with everything going on has evolved over the the past six months. Yeah I mean tribute to mr. share you know a big thank you to do it very you know -- media. You know over -- -- these a great job for a lot of other victims and raising money is. Which is amazing to see it. The amount of love and amount of support that we got term you know. The city of Austin and all the victims task. Targeted it several outweigh what. For one. Terrible lack control on bit of cowardice. Love and support of -- -- -- -- region that is you know the really is it's very touching it it's very. -- obviously very real so. There's an and an introduction of surrendering an achievement in the city and you know we're we are hurt and it's gonna take all of us to try to -- loans even so -- or whatever you know. Now you've got some younger players on the team a lot of people that aren't from this area and you spent a lot of time here obviously. Did you ever find yourself time to explain. What this community is like and how it treats its athletes and how much pressure is put on people to succeed in this market. You know everything that you have to figure that -- yourself. You know with the younger guys -- they've they've had -- they get it and there are willing to to learn and Q. You know -- information so you know they they understand what they're they've played here regular it's a bit ago. Long term achieve in the morning -- the papers in a much this course means -- better -- We're aware of it obviously. I'm sure in this city -- patriots where appropriate where there. Do over in Iraq to -- those dozen bulletins and yeah if you French. Your country's cricket tournament and surprise surprise our children are created in -- elected consider it -- kicking. So I just wanna go back into your life a little bit growing up. I'm assuming you're a big soccer fan who was some of the players you looked up to growing up. Oil is for me go to we've is that the TV and Internet know that isn't really is. In your -- says it is today so you know actually a bit of extra back -- later my older brother -- there what you did meet its soccer. In. In a sportswear kind of a big thing in our trailer but that -- -- -- within -- -- really sit down. Follow -- all that much. Joseph from -- as it was my older brother. One of the things that people -- as it looked up to their siblings and sports and what does it make it over them it's just kind of an interesting dynamic is I looked up to my older brother playing sports growing up. So one of the things have been asking I've interviewed Andrew Jay heaps a couple of guys. When things I want to know is. World Cup prediction you have the World Cup prediction. All Latinos in the World Cup yet I can't make it proper prediction but. You know it's going to be staying. Teams that play at home usually have an advantage so -- to Brazil's the front runner. But it just it's such an amazing time approach. An amazing. Cycle of four years to see it was a -- through the United States trying to qualify and everybody is assuming that we will every year every time. And it's a lot harder you know we are giving credit for and to be in the tournament and to be at the last group team in the -- the World Cup designated. Well to be fair to those fans the US has dominated on their way. Qualifying for World Cup this time. Well absolutely no it I think that there are huge southern. You're gonna let them captive you know we did dominate -- we did. -- we got a lot of points on the road and we took ever vehicle is right there you brought up and it. Played out to the.

Who would you say the -- biggest rival is. It. I think area in the eastern coveted RB DC I think a better -- tribal. You know Chicago has been there to lend America in the order I think there's there's attributed the period. You know in the -- -- obviously -- then. You know -- -- -- would be to revolution the first time that that having lost twice to 08 great dispute that it's hard to. And outlook -- you can also. Your final questions going to be really really difficult for you. It's already come down there enduring goal and I had ten penalty kicks how many what do score. -- now keep in mind I haven't -- -- -- 60. -- you have absolutely no knowledge -- -- I haven't played organized soccer -- over fifteen years -- kicked a soccer ball -- over a year. America and I look at that -- I view my eight. Not scored well. Challenge accepted. One -- out of the ten you know you never know what's gonna happen tired. It is. Averages the newcomer. -- -- gonna -- -- down as one of the and that's and then I'm gonna put it down is that because this is being reported right though.

But I know this market can and will appreciate the reds they need to make a run. They need to get into the playoffs. They need to do some damage to get some eyes -- -- it's tough time for them with all the focus on the Red Sox and patriots right now but the -- have a legit shot that got a good team they turned it around a lot last couple of years -- -- -- a phenomenal job.

Couple of things take care of here. November. Is the month of the mustache is most member and the revs are literally showing their support from November. -- -- -- growing mustaches as part of the charity work for for the reds and as part of the analyst works soccer kicks cancer on November 2013. Campaign. It's a really great cause. IE and it's when he years olds that can't reform process so I will try my best to participate you support is great to. And -- the can donate time and money it's almost irrelevant just by growing out of mustache. It puts it in your mind. What it is you're doing what it is you're supporting your trying to cure cancer that's the goal.

That's real goal here in the reps have been an amazing part of the community here in Boston have been very charitable -- to a lot of great things you heard Matt talking about. Some of the stuff that happened after. April bombing. He was directly affected with that a lot of us were.
