I remember the early sixties it senators actually silly game wasn't the part in the bottom of the ninth the senators were ahead nine to nothing -- in the record books. They lost to the Red Sox right was it was everything. We all remember that and exactly around me it's that document the rich text media guys well how did you manage that -- in the ninth and another thing. You're up with him do or die and you win when you know your bad you know. But remember you traded Babe Ruth come on yeah I heard the a strike and inside corner and then -- -- I don't. And 20042007.
