Yeah right the situation has been addressed he did the drill properly on -- but I think we agree on the World Baseball Classic lose it over to. It's time for college players to take to wonder what test as both the new intelligence test the player assessment tool. Which WEE -- personality would score the highest and lowest on either test. It was -- alone up there fell asleep on the trailer as it sees as long. -- you feel arguing trial as a gruesome thing to miss a ticket policy give you to take a lot of close and there were -- repetitive and AD.

Like the very first award they give out. On the Academy Awards on on Sunday night is like is it's like editing sound editing whatever it's it's the first one on TV they give -- Nobody knows anything about -- whichever will be winds that almost always wins the Academy Award for best picture. It's -- it's one of those things that just works out that went because you know ideas they give everybody the ballot nobody knows anything about sound editing. So they just go with what they think is their paper Moby and they vote not.
