And we didn't make the playoffs and everyone got kicked out work done with us on the line from radio row in Atlanta's. We get you ready for Super Bowl fifty three. Do you still own a piece of the falcons? Yes, sir. Now that right there now, that's that's an incredible accomplishment. You went from a drafted player coming out that played on the team to having a part ownership. How did that come about? And that's in obviously, it's been profitable for you. Well, it's it's it's crazy because Mr. blank built a really good relationship with Mr. blank. He's author blank majority owner of the falcons, and you know, when I left and went back to Tampa for one year. I would love to call your partner we had a lot of same values caring about the community giving back and change in lives. And it went I didn't really understand what he meant by.
