It's hurting mom know you could you do it's hard to watch the whole game because of you know one teams to score a hundred no evidence in the score 88. First at being the feeling in kind of miss that. Maybe it's just the way while -- is the NBA is is always surprising me or somebody's down 22 points you figure things all or breath and find out the next day the team came back and and beat.
