Did I wanna what do you think you joke and knew he gave me his endorsement which I has it and there's David I called. -- MPs who have a lot of faith in and Ernie said the same attorneys who won that. So you Bobby got to talk to him so I talked to Jones said look if you guys loses playoff game. I'm going to be there we're getting on a plane and come back. To meet mr. cook and he said yes he says he was listening Christine and Joseph and I flew back. And they lost the game. And we flew back in that mr. -- this and then this is a different guy. But you don't like so when I told mr. cook he said now who do you think and as I -- well you never heard of it's a guy named Joseph Gibbs.
