I wish I had a dollar for every time. I hear you know, when someone would come up and say. Well, you know, your team couldn't beat a really good, Mitzi. Well, that is might be the dumbest thing that anybody could ever say. Doesn't matter whether they could or couldn't they don't have to. You know, the that that's like saying Serena Williams couldn't beat Roger Federer stupid. She doesn't have to. Or that a woman's accomplishment accomplishments against other women is less than a men's accomplishment against another man. So when these guys are talking, you know, the one thing I try to remind them all the time is, you know, guys like, my more and sue bird, Diana Tarizi?
