I don't know we had a week we had a very very strong bad.
-- we have a you know brand new state of the art stadiums.
And it was two teams bidding -- is -- that I -- so I think that was off track.
Now you you don't have a covered in this new stadium so it is gonna be open air -- is the possibility that this could be one of those ice balls.

Nobody -- -- lesson and snow and ice removal and streets and and we do have public that we yet we have explain how high speed -- into the stadium -- Files as you get that way that -- -- it's a terrific drained by the way and and it works very efficiently -- we also the question is whether or not you're gonna have enough room with.
In the hotels of course you don't have to stay in Manhattan you could stake probably for a lot cheaper in New Jersey right.

It's part of the normal process of people that watch this evolve forty odd years say that it's usually the third or fourth that balance.
It never really got before that.
And and what happened is I -- I -- nervous -- your -- but I guess what happened is there's somebody who was only getting a couple of -- Finally withdrew his -- at that what finally when he over.
Well yeah out people gave a lot of -- -- but they do is on the first and the second invalid.
-- -- gets the lowest gets eliminated.
And that we had three teams -- that's the way that we got data to -- end.
