But they're gonna go out there and they're going to try against the Steelers tonight. Here's I want to ask you and we've been having a conversation about doughnuts as well. It could be an overall theme of the show because I love me some donuts and I'm trying to put together my post pandemic. Travel plans. I'm asking people to share their favorite doughnut places from around the country, and I could put a list together for myself for when I get back on the road and start checking these. I know there are some people who want to jump in on that if you want to talk about any of the games I'm here for you. And I want to ask you a specific question.

You this question. Let me give you some of the responses that we saw. This from Sean, he says impact players rooting interest in the best players in the game, making big plays. The outcome is not important until the game's over Also impact schemes. Groups of players. AII the legion of Boom or the Niners run game last year. I'm with him on both of those like what the 40 Niners were doing with their run game with Kyle Shanahan. And they're running it. It's sexy. People think that you have to play this kind of smash mouth football. It has to be down in there. It could be sexy. You could be just as sexy as a passing game, a great passing game. If you do it correctly in last year watching the 40 Niners just say Yeah, we're gonna We're gonna run the ball and we're gonna throw it to our tight ends. We dare you, we double dog Dare you to stop us? Was pretty great. That's a good response. This for man for it. Wait. He's not man for he was making a joke about Rob Manfred, His name's Anthony.
