I mean that would be I think that -- we should look into. Well but I was just curious because you know I mean we obviously know. You know that with the traditions of the sports all the detail and and I guess in basketball it's a little more difficult you you know to get after receipt and go get a beer. Or they don't really bring them around is much either so -- baseball probably does make the most the most -- Patty is in the car patty Iran would Jim. I am I don't -- and can you wanna crack a cold.

Because if you're if they cut appear in the seventh Connecticut's tied up in the ninth and they go to the seventeenth inning you're tuchman extra 23 hours there and there's no beer -- That's like. Worse -- prohibition. But people leave. So it's -- little they know how watched the next seven innings from the bar because I get a bigger and what my worst nightmare the league's got to do something about that. -- you know reestablished.
