This morning. What think about Theo? He He's such a smart guy. You didn't hear a lot of the normal cliches that, you know, do all the time from guys like that, right? In the end, he answered questions directly. He we've we've had sports executives in this town have been Very good and very upfront, very candid, and we've had some who would dance around questions and not answer them.
