CSN Washington dot com. First off you never -- the column on what your fortunes of the magnitude that is. I had nothing could have prepared for this I mean I've covered a number of big events. They're 800 credentialed media here I mean. The the once ran out in five minutes is -- sit in the media room. And you know it's for college kids jumping and running in their underwear and we can't even watch them do it -- were watching on on monitors. It just it's just it just speaks volumes about. How people cannot get enough in the NFL even in February. It has become a 52 week A year business for the NFL -- -- just a couple weeks north Super Bowl here -- at Columbine. And this is a convention of sorts for NFL personnel. Heads for coaches. And obviously his college players want the good. -- you know. Everyone who is anyone in this game is here I walked through a few of the hotel lobbies and bars last night and -- is it's amazing and you see agents and -- they're sitting right out the open and you know they're talking about they're not just explain -- exchanging pleasantries and deciding where they're going to have a talk about restructuring contracts and know what is gonna take to sign this guy and so very the ground work for what's gonna happen over the next month in the league here. It's being laid down here. You know I I. Know that you weren't in the office last week did we -- -- camera there and asked him what his favorite. Aspect come on what's his that the forty of course I brought up. My attempt to get chew up pass. To rod just wants spirit -- the forty after we see what you can do but it all in all seriousness oh did that in all seriousness what what are you looking for to the most. You know the one thing growing up that I was always -- in his -- flat out speed and I I got a group -- stand laurel miss when I mean the forty. Yet it doesn't always equate to those success in the NFL but you know what we all like a burner right I mean everyone wants to see the guy you can just streaked down the field. I love scenes guys who have worked to rates and and look and see where they get drafted so. The forty something I'm definitely looking forward to my house like the bench press post up that's pretty cool. CSN Washington dot com.
