The -- he's dealt very last year mean you know -- don't get the opportunity to play with these guys and you definitely don't get to to see them you know off the field. And how they treat each other inside the clubhouse and what goes on. But what a breath of fresh shares share work place with these guys. It was it would just -- on and it just to see you know how hard David Ortiz works and how hard does -- drew worked -- other guys. You know that they just you know set the -- traffic and we followed.
