Oh yes and I understand there already lined up to do that then I finally wonderful but I do want to say. I don't have much of an opportunity to do this. But WWL. Is one of the very few radio stations we can hear all the way at the North Pole you know I've heard that it's true. And that's how -- became a big fan of the New Orleans Saints I go all the way back Archie Manning for heaven's sake and occasionally I would slip something a little extra under the tree for them and a few other people.
