The last few games concern it. Yet no it doesn't concern mix I don't know anything on the top shelf is and alcohol that the -- and alcohol for me hum. But I am rooting for the Bruins I know that I know ball Boston is a became a huge fan after last year watching them. Go to the finals so I definitely any debt that energy back in Boston so I hope they hope they put off. When you went to -- if to say that you were going to go to game seven. With the Bruins Canadians. What would be the highlight of you going and I understand that you know you're not sitting with a riff Raff. You're not valid a comment stroke. -- what would be the highlight in you can -- you can say you know of that that the thrill of hockey but he can also be realistic about what that brought that whole scene is like. Well I I I actually just enjoy I would get a chance to go last year two game three of the first one in Boston and I just remember the excitement. The place went crazy. The flag the Bruins flag pastor on the crowd that anthem was crazy. It was loud there were some some choice words spoken from the groups behind me get you know the -- was pretty cool. Who's intense and how is they whine and you know trying to kind of -- like their goalie it's kind of like the catcher you know means I can relate to Tuukka Rask and and I had his Jersey on and and just fired up man I mean the one thing it's addicting now Boston is -- -- there in love with every sport it's in Boston and and I I was I was addicted right away those sounds like basically you're you're gonna say whichever goalie has the best painted face mask may have the upper hand yeah I I. I hope that the coolest thing about hockey is that fights in the painted face -- having this be honest and and the intensity has -- those guys are animals. Thank you Hewitt Hewitt per day in -- Bruins fans demand that you answer some questions if you could do about game seven coming up. First question is are you concerned. That. Carey Price. The Montreal Canadian goalie might actually have the bruins' number upon. That is of the utmost concern. But game seven anything can happen. To be sure you know not lead on net. Knowledge that does does the everything can happen Credo does that carry over to all games sevens. For sure you know we're there to throw the kitchen sink at us. Recruit kids instinctive and on hope ray -- deceased Oakland. You will be at the -- okay good. That's you know obviously close on on the bruins' side and everything. So anything can happen even report in. Which concerns you more in the fourth line pairings of the Bruins or the fourth line pairings of the Canadians. I don't know what that means but definitely the fourth line pairings. But the Canadians. And the selling wine and cheese pairings. I guess hopefully we get the right one very -- if you did the whole French Canadian -- the pitcher mark if you will the I thank you very much.
