It's I don't that's the best line it is regrettable if you did have good numbers might. I'm sorry that you. Socked -- it does it meant that there was some mysterious judgments you know on that team leader should've played more. But anyways this -- -- I play in America was more of you know of might play it was a really -- judging me. Put he's concerned because they because we don't have a good you know.

When I was there -- after I left the watch again I thought was the greatest movers is even on here because it was sold similar. It's something exaggerated but for the most part it was it was it was hysterical maybe nobody accused I would. Hate to have a -- -- if you -- put out a couple times I would not wanna look at myself one 80 big heavy guys think about it you sit down -- he just in -- -- but elegant -- -- at my -- that that lets you -- of the things kind of perspective that.

Though it was not home I don't live here you know like I don't feel right you know a I don't live here -- Christie acquitee. Weekend many Rex Ryan Bill Belichick -- a moment and it's like football game. No I mean no voice today but so like two days of like football game so there than North Shore flag football league like a government twelve year old so. I put together a nice full team there were just running through most -- -- -- but we did get beat by one team pretty badly so stirred up yesterday in the knock out round. We've played against this one team and we my hat there's the mercy rules 33 point very reports of their appointment don't we just call the -- well sure enough I've put in some guys that should be of course a guy that should be receiver. But again. They're still they're still scored points I can't stop bumps or not they call the game the coach of the -- with me. Going through -- line to head coaches -- short little quade jacked up loaded. It's not going up all the kids like you know it's not like -- yeah hard like punching her knuckles punching that he gets to me. Moxie not really reported its knuckles me. I'm like while. Whoa what club pro late day comeback here we don't know what's what's what's twice so later I got beat by play five points in the in the first game we play. Why so angry at the same thing he keeps walking. He he's talking I'm like hey come back here we need to cut -- total went up up up up. Let's talk Soledad public spotlight no hard feelings you know to a -- about the kids. And -- signed misconduct form as a coach so I'm like. It's not a product or I thought I'd get up there did you -- started didn't bring it. Register big jerk all of these kids. Twelve -- twelve I don't without getting -- -- came back now it's very vague and respond to me next thing you know you know one of the coaches what are the other guys in front of the places chasing app from you ought to handle this. Disrespect my tenth. I mean I -- -- I usually I'm not coaching my case because you know time like this -- situations I don't want it did I don't wanna be that coach. I am that coach -- I am mad at this guy and believe me I lost the public listen we got killed. We -- one particular this team it's not a good ball to damp black it's hard to think tackling -- stop trying to pull them multiplied. Bush or not I got beat it to -- man thank you very much men have another but yesterday. Map out hot. Area and there's really no moral of the story. Is hot we -- -- winning all banged up our age group so that's applause. But the fact of like if you're going to. I guess culture kids do you like she's got to be read. For this amount that is a no win situation for either you guys do you coach -- -- teams dogs for nothing nothing to do well will you go to someday we'll see all -- I would imagine -- deal with their real. -- you -- materials -- your kids well just on the list cities but there's always that got up. No and I'd I'd let him but no right now it is the guys coach he's with the kids you know so they're like they're all right are lucky right now -- drive myself. A personal one wanna know your son is right. Today and Tuesday they don't you are so why they're your they're beaten up on your son should be good because what this guy so this is -- that is going to be Christian -- -- I got beat earlier that the guy. But whatever it happens -- every game that was going to be the story at the bar he was getting that whoever bar he hangs out and say I out coach Christian -- -- -- football stadium ruined his dreams and ambitions are now he's still telling the story that -- -- -- -- -- I -- hard. The difference is that Christians kind of been through it you've just got to go to get that guy. Actually does think he's Bill Belichick. Figure to me like actually really does think good for is like our that they've played this game is that that plays together yet and really does believe that he's bill. But you know -- -- -- early games have -- the really do believe that. There's a big league game I'm shown everybody that I can manage just like Terry Francona you know to give it up it's just. It yet blacks I had played so soon so I take place veteran. Knows that which is nine I was I went belly diet I -- I had so many parents -- no rules. Like bubbles that is please at least the way to do here is totally different than -- -- ever that you can't -- -- candidate yeah it did it it's somebody catches a pass and their running down field.

You know in my life you know there's not a meeting blocking you can get it somebody's legged on around -- -- -- -- -- ball Christian is no contact I played like football and LA and it was you can block.
