Where were pretty -- but I know that. -- hope yours always look into crew. It better so. You out but. Right big it would last night so your back three points. We always say that in and July show McCormack the Red Sox in baseball's trade deadline is that the GM. Asked to do some to show the guys in the club boast that he means business that -- that he is going forties is committed as they are.

Thought that holier we had a lot in the second period I. You handled so obviously but I didn't like that you're an up or ship. -- -- He is brilliant guy I've played well I actually -- much at all this court -- actually. Like what you're going auditors. These contradictory dobbs are all but I'm not a couple actions others are worried -- Are. Gonna. It has got to get after a dispute -- took a little. So did you discuss it before him and you've told us how these things unfold on the begin in the past like who says what to hoot to see say some do you use -- some hammers it just a little weaken the guy you guys fight all the time you know him well. Is it just there's a look that at least to the fight. I -- but actually I was -- also got out you've got he got out. Yeah I like Archie but we got a court but he got.
