I have found over the years of doing that. Is that there is good as i am in many cases and i can get up off the stage where i'm broadcasting from and walk away and they can handle it. I remember one incident down southern part of afghanistan That we had to soldiers one was an officer. The other was a non calm. And i noticed during the course of them that they had taken off their rank and put it on the table. And i didn't understand that so i turned to our military person with us. I said what's that about. He started laughing. He said ron when it comes to talking sports. There is no rank and one was an oakland raider fan. The other one was a denver. Bronco fan so you can certainly understand what that is like so again. I want to send my very best out to them and tell everybody how proud we are to have them listening around the world.
