"New May I thought that was a goof. Just try try to get him some publicity that is trying to buy a team someplace. We talked about it on the air, and that's what you're you're theorizing that Ryan star just put his name out there to increase his credit. But no, it's serious. This is not an April Fool's joke. The Sox hiring the 76 year old Tony LaRussa, he could run for president at that age America lawyers Day may hire a 77 year old You're on the country. Why can't a 76 year old make out a lineup card? But should you know? Should a 76 year old man be putting on a baseball uniform? Remember Connie Mack? He would wear a suit. You are stressed. Like John Howlett. Doug. He wore a suit and tie. I saw Connie Mack. In Philadelphia. When I was a young child, he was still managing back in those days, and my dad told me at that time, see how he dresses. That's what you want to emulate. Right there exactly. In July. It's 100 degrees. You are a nice wool suit out there. That's right. That's right. But let me ask you did totally were said, with all due respect to him. Did he not save his money? That's funny. I mean, really did he not does not have a nest egg? I don't Maybe maybe he's just bored and he wants to work again. He's 76. You know, 70 is the new fifties. They said, doesn't Tony on a car dealership someplace in name? You know, just a name. You don't have to run it right? All these guys have car dealerships, right? You're telling me worked in baseball for over 50 years and didn't put enough away that When he's 76 years old. He doesn't have to come back to town and manage a team 100. Well, who knows how many games? Yeah, Major League Baseball will be next year. But just for me, I have some tape of him meeting the Meeting.

"Chicago Native Michael Wilbon Post up with Waddell and Sylvie on ESPN Chicago Michael, Let's start with our Bears or possibly R white sacks. What would you rather have in Chicago, Vivian Bell with the Bears? Tony LaRussa with white sacks. I listen. I told you something. I don't know what to think of that. I mean, we just talked about that on the I and I mean, it's like Connie Mack. I mean, you know, I don't want our spirits on the roof of one of the great history of baseball, and it started. He was like a 36 year old manager. We got to the White Sox. Bright I don't know. I mean, how much when I was strengthen energy doesn't take the management. Anyone have that at 76 years old? I don't know. They never could have gotten rid of him when they did that whole carols. Specifically or Jerry's for letting him do it. Just like you know, letting Ah A certain Bulls general manager do some of the stuff he wanted to do, and I don't know. Libyan Bill. I have hesitation there. I physically especially having lost chord from the rest of the year. Let me have Bill could help the Bears. But if you know you guys have everything you want Antonio Brown. L No, I don't want Antonio Brown. Do I think that Livia Bell in big of troublemakers and around? No And you have the Jets are largely to blame. For what didn't go right there. Yes. Um Adam gays and with executives involved them in the car. It's all clownish. But the jet It's a clown show. No. I think Levi on Bell is the antics of the Bears are foreign one. If you can add a threat offensively, right, like he was in Pittsburgh. Then, to me, that seems to be the way to go. I don't know The White Sox are ready to live. We saw them be the number one seed with 12 days left in the season. They're ready to Lynn and controlling the route will be that I don't know, like I know that a lot of times there is a collaborative effort. I mean being the general manager's air given The ability to make decisions, but a lot of cases they talkto ownership. Is. Is this a situation where you think that this is purely the owner's decision? And if this was the decision, they went with that Ric Kahn in some ways would have been undermined as the general manager. I can't believe will be recalled. Nor Khun Witt mean Jerry rise has been quite a day for 40 plus years. And so this has to be a decision and by the way I understand it. I do. Now. He came close to this once before with a similar situation with duck out, right, And then he and Doug decided. Okay, we We want this friendship. Friendship was more important than just a coaching. And I applaud both of them for coming to that realization, I, you know. I don't make any bones about being normal. Ever gonna apologize to be in a south side born and raised kids in the company? But I admire Jerry Rise doors. I really, really, really like Jerry Rice. He joked about things a little bit of fun of me for being a cup fan. But whenever there is, they're often community reason. You know, culture of the South. I reasons that Jerry rise door. Has reached out to me or had his lieutenants reached out to me. And all the time it's been. Hey, listen, if you don't want to do this, I'm like no, I always want to do this. I always want to do it so I may be a cup fan. I mean, Gerry, rise over somebody who I just recognized being one of the most important People on the Southside of Chicago in the last 40. Plus years. Here's what doesn't make sense. I'm sorry. Go ahead. Finish up your thought. No, no, no, I want to get out. I want here. That's because Waddle and I just can't believe this story and where it's gone. We thought at first, it was just some Sided way. Well, can so this well, But here's what doesn't make sense to me. The white sacks made this big decision three or four years ago that we're not gonna let The stuff that we used to love in the past dictate the future. So no matter how much we love Chris sale, we're going to cut bait with him. No matter how much we love, Robin Ventura, we're going to cut it with him. The old way of doing business is not gonna work for us, and it's all worked all the new way. The Yung Wei wei and now they want to go back in time. 40 years. None of that makes any sense to me well. You have to fit in the 1000 of them. Make any sense. I mean, a zoo rule, right? I mean and I hear what you're saying. That's about to look, They've done it right, You know, talk about the Bulls, having built the writing twice and failed tries because he had to go abroad. Right. Socks would have run this twice. You know, the 2 2005 cash in. They didn't build the right team. You know what 11 12 when they thought they had that didn't work, but this one seems on the verge of working. And I like you When I heard it. I was like, okay, so they'll flirt with that for a little while, but I'm really gonna do it. And then you know, you see the secondary reports. The second wave of reporting just it can I mean, I I really I really don't know what you think..

It's a long story, but s so I kind of panicked and I was like, You know what? I grew up. There was some guys that live next to me that we're in the air Force at Davis Monthan. All those guys ever did was talk about how weekends off on holidays and painting this beautiful picture to me when I was 18 years old, and I just needed some structure in my life, and I needed some guidance and I needed a way forward. I said, You know what, man? Those guys were living good. I want to go live good, too. So that's what I did on. Uh, I took off for Lachlan Did boot camp and whatnot and try to go overseas.

"Any living players former players that played under Connie Mack and we found that there's only two yeah two players that played under Connie Mack but the funny thing is we also found out in that same research that there is only one player still alive former player still alive from the nineteen forty two season which was the first year of baseball digest while wow and that player is the oldest living former major leaguer and urology all my gosh oh my gosh by the way you know with a lot of free time on my hands I've gone back to reading and I'm always looking for something to read and I just online purchase the baseball game I'll never forget which is advertised in this current issue I think you had it in there before two fifty major leaguers recall their finest moments it I've just begun it and I know it's going to be very difficult to put down so again I mean the the value added here what you got Rick is unbelievable while I can even stop that because we we might have talked about this last time but you know through July fifteenth you can have free access to our archive which has every issue every page every issue of baseball digest from nineteen forty two through two thousand nineteen the only year that is not yet on the archive is this current year and you can do to sign up for that for free by simply going to baseball digest dot com forward slash free well yeah I and and I did take advantage of that and it's it's wonderful there's so many great stories you find so many of them in baseball digest and the other in order to talk about here about this current issue is is you know this this whole thing about on players in automated balls or strikes and this and that no I'm a purist Europe I know your purest I'm I'm not embracing that quite so much in from the gist of the article and you quote cost is in there and and everything else but it almost seems like there needs to be a little more thought put into this would you not agree that they thought needed here I think that was the again I think that was the point of the article that I don't know why there's this rush to bring in this automated strikes on you know you always have people and I won't mention any names with you know who are advocates for certain things I mean it goes far beyond an automated strike zone but I think the worst line uttered in baseball is the most important thing is to get it right well the most important thing is that this is entertainment and we're stripping away so much of the entertainment value we've taken you know arguing with umpires completely out of out of the game you don't usually see that at all I liked it it was you know maybe people will say well are grown men should be arguing with each other throwing their captain kicking dirt well you know I mean you know people shouldn't be hitting each other with chairs but the W. W. E. is very successful yes so you know we're stripping away so much of what the main we're taking the human element out of the game and based on the the employer's job just because fans can see the ball was a hair outside or you know they're not missing a gregis calls so I don't really see the need for it and as Bob Costas pointed out in the future you know how to how do we know that there's not going to be unintended consequences I mean you know how quickly the number going to be able to call a strike one of the commissioner over the president of the Atlantic league says it's instantaneous justice just as quick I I can't believe that I don't believe that for a minute either it's a great article Mike bird you know wrote a good guest to this program based in Florida so here we are we're we're entering may here very shortly we thank Rick I've I've heard this three this three zero Texas Arizona Florida plan I think nothing moves until it's it's it's from a health standpoint a really wise to do so but what do you think about that were you would S. as in Sam east coast time zone central time zone west coast time zone in and basically keep teams on their own you know their own game plans we think about that well I think it's going to be something that we're not used to it I mean it's going to change I mean can you'll see something else you'll be at a different sorry but you know put out there next week if there's just so many scenarios.

"To the Philadelphia aids we all know about the famous nineteen twenty seven Yankees but Connie Mack he put together some great teams and had some outstanding players and how did you get this assignment and how did you learn all about those Philadelphia is well I have the office actually called me when the baseball guys called me and said you did he heard baseball historians say that the greatest baseball team of all time might not have been the nineteen twenty seven Yankees which was more famous they were out of York they had all of the publicity but it might have been the ninety twenty nine Philadelphia athletics which won the World Series and and so they said would you be interested in looking into this and I said sure that sounds like a good one and so I started talking to have what I call the the the the Major League Baseball the main office and I said I did I need to know how many layers are alive still who played at nineteen twenty seven in the American League and I got a list of about twenty or thirty guys who are still around did the peace in the early nineteen nineties so the World Series was a twin center is important about sixty years earlier sixty five years earlier add I started well I went down the list I started visiting these guys around the country and of that World Series in nineteen twenty nine both teams of Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia athletics of all the guys who played in that World Series were on the roster there was one guy left alive and his name was William bush who was a shortstop for the Chicago Cubs he was twenty two at the time in nineteen does twenty nine was to the twenty two so he was born I guess guess about nineteen oh seven and now here it is the early nineteen nineties and but he's close to ninety years old and I went to see him in a little town called Newark Ohio he was living on the woody English alley in Mexico and I sat with his living room he I got he's he told me he'd see me that when I got to town I called me said I can't see I said what we have come all the way from from New York systems to see what what you said you'd see me said well my wife just passed away we've been married for sixty five years and I said oh I'm so sorry and many thought about he said but wanted to come over he said that it will be okay so I came over to his house he lived in this little tiny house at the end of this alley at the work Ohio and we sat and talked for an hour and a half I taped he described I I'd had about all of the come to the games and so I could remind him what happened and he with his memory was just flawless and told me all about lefty Grove with Jimmy fox and all the great Philadelphia players and how good they were and there was one famous game work the phase scored a ton of runs and won the game and I went to old newspapers at the library of Congress I was living in Washington DC at the at the time as I still do and I went to the library Congress and I looked up all the papers that covered that series the New York Tribune New York times Philadelphia Inquirer and I read all of the contemporary accounts written by people about that World Series and I microphone and really got into it and then talk to all these players who played against these guys a member one guy tell me that the Jimmy fox was a boy was it was really thought both the big home run hitter in those days of the group got all the publicity but fox was really a home run hitter and he hit powering along the whole bridge he hit one off of what lefty Gomez the Yankees and and it hit so far into the upper Dickey AT stadium with Beth broke up a wooden seat it hit the back of its associate broker and he many years later lefty was watching television with his wife and and they were watching men walk on the moon and one day I reached down and picked up object on the moon the moon it looks like a white object of some sort and let the rice I wonder what that is HM he said that's a home run the fax it off the achy stadium it's great that the humor anyway it that you know that was a real fun story to do and I got letters full L. Simmons one of the great Philadelphia players a bucket for now and he his granddaughter wrote me a letter after the piece came out because it was on the cover ran on the cover the magazine okay the cover picture was al Simmons hitting a baseball and what I think the headline was lost to history the team that nobody remembers because they're a lot there because I got overshadowed by the Yankees you know that's where all of the publicity came out over the communications capital of the world is New York New York teams always get more publicity than any place else and this team was really lost in history I want to see Shirley Povich who was then the retired sports editor of The Washington Post who covered the twenty nine the Yankees in cover that World Series and he was in his nineties at the time and I sat with him at his house it is a part of it is in the Washington DC and he described that the he said that might have been the greatest team of all time he said nobody knows this but them telling you what a great team was left the girl was the pitcher he was a stopper what a great a great catcher Mickey Cochran who is noted for being in Detroit but actually was with the ace in Somers greatest achievements yeah I was a great great baseball team which I'm with bill nack and we've covered some different topics let's get into horse racing because you wrote about a person that was an outstanding jockey and I also thought it was an outstanding person to be around in the years that I spent with them and that's the issue we'll show yeah how did you decide that you could write something unique you know when you when you are signed these I assume you got to try to find a different angle that hasn't been written or develop a a personality that people don't know that maybe a silent shoe actually has a sense of humor yeah it was great it was would you know when I came to the magazine and seventy nine I started going up to the race track in the mid nineteen fifties in Chicago Arlington park and Washington Park and every summer of my youth the Jackie the double booked at the Jockey war that went on in Chicago who's going to lead the the big meetings in Chicago was built heart attack and bill shoemaker they wrote against each other every summer of nineteen fifty five fifty six fifty seven fifty eight fifty nine Calumet farm was there Claiborne farmers are a lot of the big stables was there Dixiana they were all there and in those Jackie does two riders were terrific and I remembered bill for many years watching him ride in Chicago and when I when I got to the magazine in nineteen seventy nine I said I'd say a couple years later built it kind of disappeared he just you know he he was at the do it like he's like he had been yeah but he he suddenly had a they have a mountain spectacular bid in nineteen eighty but in nineteen seventy nine I said that the operation I'm kind of like to do a piece on bill shoemaker I see the sort of disappeared they set all we've got him to death I said yeah but I said he's really kind of disappeared and now it's coming back he's right the source spectacular bid and and I said he's really made a comeback let's do is come back and they finally said okay do it see if we get anything known on earth we've got everything so I went out to California and I sat with him for several days I watched a bride we had dinner at his house his wife Cindy she was pregnant at the time with his first natural child and I started talking to the traders who noted over the years and it and it it really turned out to be a good story and one of the things that made it was it always years we heard that he was we have heard that he was put that he was born so prematurely we'd like to two and a half pounds that he was put in a shoe box and it is an incubator is that small add I said the bill one time I said that by the way if you ever see your Daddy said bow never see him as a what about your mother she's still around he said yeah she's alive and I said you know I've read everything I've written virtually everything read about written about you and I said I've never read anything about your mother I've never cedar quoted anywhere he said she was over and out near riverside California she was in a trailer park and she was older much older bill at the time was fifty five I think and she was sixteen when he was born so sixty or so she was interest well into her seventies and so I said could you give me your number and he did so I called her and she invited me after trailer park I sat with her and a friend of hers

I've exam I think us leave wherein texted me before he may be the first center field and lead the team in home run since Willie Mays but I thought maybe Bobby bonds of maybe led the team when years a center fielder I don't know but I'm with you the large got to come back in I'm not real sold right now on flickr cinerea the hot streak but as you know that come through and have those hot streaks and you notice minute you know hopefully it'll turn around I I think Yassin Slater you know Neal bit more power but you know I think they're both manageable out there Duggar I I need any kind of Wally kicked out of the situation good me but you don't know you know the we don't know what jail in Davis brings to the table we don't know what Eliot Rameau's is going to bring to the table so those guys eventually you're going to be the new core I think if Davis is the real deal we have never seen a majorly pitch yet so who knows but what they say that looks like a hundred bishop that's probably your core of when the giants turned around that's going to be your core out feel that not necessarily strips you Dickerson or pull our they're good for now but ultimately these other guys are going to take over. a few years ago there was the bread will and Adam devolved to know so much promise never turned out you know that sort of thing so yeah Hey I appreciate Rick thank you I am Marty one last thing sure is seriously living up here can you let the confiding appear from time to time yeah but he's got such a low profile that he's not the beloved figure and end up here that he is down there you know local taverns got a picture of the magazine comes in there a couple times a year you know when that we haven't heard from his dad at all in a couple of years he used to call in all the time and run it to him every once in awhile all right but that one the love down here and we love to see him. each little skate skater had on in and around pioneer square I guess he's got a a condo thirteen stories above down there somewhere and just when I think you know the whole building. all right thanks guys have been I think you all right Jerry it's an omen Jerry go head into a cambiar. a money Hey. yeah you really bring a lot of pleasure to our lives I really appreciate your work thank you so much it's been a long weekend but you know as I said before with Allie and Carmen and and Adam and Josh yeah fish and rap for the RAF and I've been doing this for fifteen years and it. what real nice along the weekend goes for us but when you say things like that it makes me feel good so thank you well I really appreciate it Hey listen although I was gonna say was I personally I I like Bruce Bochy as a person but I think you should be retired about three years ago they just as an exhibit the energy and leadership I think the other managers do and I think the same thing about Posey and bell their body language is. and well I don't see how they're not what is your book I let me take this on because we were going to run out of time and I want to develop just a little bit with you Belton Posey are that's who they are and you're not going to get them to be anything else when there's when the moment happens they can they be exuberant and get get crazy about it but on overall basis they don't do it I think you're way off of both G. Boettcher I think is a great leader he's got that Lou brown that Major League look to amend the voice and everything else he protects his players to to the nth degree which is which is great to see for a manager of the game's change a little bit he's got to work with Farhan is supposed to bright Sabian so that's different but I I think he's had a great career I really do and I'm glad he won World Series he's gonna have two thousand wins twenty five years and it's all say this jerk it's it's speaks for itself. I know you had a great career but I I think he's burned out I I think Posies burned out I think belt is on their productivity shows that Marty. look how I think we have fifteen or twenty more wins look at those guys get out the just roll the ball out his second two short or or belt he takes so damn it he calls for eggs well the. people go back and forth on him so well let's save that for another day but well okay how this thing ends up its member is a lot of kids to watch play in let let's focus on that and then let Farhad do its thing you know in far Hon we trust and let him go over the winter and then bring this thing back to respectability and they've had a good year if they've over achieve that and here we are at September and people are still talking baseball and and thinking about it so I like it I appreciated spent exciting it's been exciting yeah well I'll let you go money thanks stay healthy yeah I will thank you so much let's say a wrap it up with Chuck it lake port Chuck it away can be our go ahead. hi you guys have a great crew there. I just wanted to say I've been a lifelong giants fan which monitors game in sixty eight no on a single state. in just a couple of quick points to you come in off the air because any short on time yeah well the only hitters that hurts religious knowledge as Dickerson Pelor they all came from somewhere else. the coaches of the triple a guide you through all of this now I just think it needs to be changed in the coach there it's been three years since David hit your regular well it's not usually guys it's the coming through the minors and that's the that's getting the players to the miners who can hit there yet and that's the difference yeah that intelligence well they didn't have the players in the minor leagues and they had not they they had nobody to develop Duggar was a big deal but yeah they won the World Series with kids who came through them the the system the same coaches Hensley mule ins and everybody else and they won three World Series now the new crop is coming and let's see what they look like when will they get here Joey bart Rameau's hundred bishop. Galen Miller you know of Jaylen Davis and you know all these people who knows when they'll get here and when they do let's see have a hit let's see what they do. okay my last slide it is the next manager on the line taking care and Keren stat he played for the angels of two thousand two World Series and for our high and interviewed him from the. all of these games Roberts eventually got he's an analytics guy he retired from Nebraska right near. what do you think why not yeah I I think you you have someone who will get an interview along with Eric Chavez in probably role of Bonnie is and who knows who else but the yeah I'm sure that on our hands thinking along those lines and you know as long as Ron lotus is part of it I think that's the key thing is to maintain that the continuity of the generations of San Francisco baseball with the guy who loves San Francisco who knows the game cold can relate to everybody he is the analytical guy because he sets every defense and I think well it's.

And of course, fares Thane played four years for the seals and was a tremendous hitter. And then he was drafted by the old Philadelphia Lennox and Connie Mack was the manager welfare. Spain was was a very outgoing straightforward kind of guy and Connie Mack in those days were starched collar and he was in already in his eighties. And here comes ferris Fain from San Francisco to sort of clash a little bit with Connie Mack. Well faint turned out to be a great hitter. A great fielder. Not a power hitter, but he led the American League in hitting twice his double play combination sort of Crawford panic and belt was juice to suited a Fain and they set the record for the most double plays. It still held. In major league history. But he ended up being his knees were bad his career ended. And he had all sorts of physical problems, and ended up as Norman says selling marijuana and going to jail for it. He was actually in prison for and then on parole.

Cornelius, mcgillicuddy, or is he was commonly known as Connie Mack on this date back in nineteen forty one then Pennsylvania governor, Arthur, h James signed a Bill officially making may seventeenth Connie Mack day, and the state of Pennsylvania, and this was the first time, the state had bestowed that honor on a sports figure. So this made that days tribute a big deal and the list of dignitaries in attendance reflected that some of those in attendance that day on the corner of twentieth and Lee high include the Commissioner of baseball at the time. Judge Kennesaw mountain Landis. As well as countless team, presidents managers and players from the Boston Braves. Pittsburgh, Pirates and Washington senators but probably the most impressive thing about that day in my mind was the laundry list of former players that showed up to honor, their former skipper some of those in attendance that day included Ed remedial, Amos, Strunk rupaul bird lefty, grove and many, many more. Now, one thing that was scheduled to happen. But didn't that day was the formal name change from sky park to Connie Mack stadium, Connie Mack, insisted that the first concrete and steel ballpark in the country maintained, the family name out of respect for the entire family that would finally change in nineteen fifty three when a plaque was invaded commemorating the name change at one of the final tributes, for the grand old man of the national game all told Connie Mack would manage the Philadelphia for the clubs. I fifty seasons starting in nineteen. Oh, one before retiring at the age of eighty seven before the nineteen. Fifty season. In addition to that Mack was at least part, owner of the as from nineteen o one through nineteen fifty four remarkable MAC was the first manager major league history to win the World Series three times. And he is the only manager in history to win consecutive World Series is twice doing in nineteen ten and nineteen eleven then again in twenty nine and nineteen.

"I was curious how that stacked up all-time. What teams have been more volatile than the twenty fourteen to Twenty-eight team Minnesota Twins. The answer is a lot of teams. There is a lot of teams have been more volatile. And it's a it's a two way tie, and we're going back more than more than a century here. But the nineteen fourteen through nineteen eighteen you might actually already know this off the top of your head a little bit the nineteen forty to nineteen eighteen athletics at the top. But this is yeah. Not a team that was actually volatile. So maybe this is a measurement problem. Not a team those volatile like the twins. But here's thing. The as over those five years changed by a total of five hundred eighty five points of winning percentage. However, most of that and by most of. I guess I should say like two thirds of that happened between the first two years because the nineteen fourteen the as had a winning percentage of six forty nine next year. He was to eighty three what just like, absolutely dreadful. I've at least Connie Mack sold off all of his best players as he was upset at the federal league or something like that. So the as are tied for the top here, but they're tied with the nineteen seventeen through nineteen twenty one White Sox. The White Sox and seventeen also had a winning percentage of six forty nine. But then four sixty but then six twenty nine than six twenty three then four three. So the White Sox between nineteen seventeen and nineteen eighteen lost a lot of their best players to World War One. Just a horrible thing where we all agreed to murder one another for a while. So the White Sox as tied atop total movement of five hundred eighty five points over the span of five years that beats the twins by a healthy margin. But where ever you have a top of the leaderboard? You also have a bottom of the leaderboard do not. And so I could also look for because I put this. Altogether. The team with the least movement over five years as long as we're having a boring stat blessed white, look the most boring teams within it. And so I guess sometimes I ask you for guest. But this really no reason if we ask you for guesses so reason why you would ever know this. But let's say that the most boring team of all time over five years where Snyder seventy two nineteen seventy four San Diego Padres. Here's why total movement total movement over five years nineteen points of winning percentage in nineteen seventy nineteen seventy was the Padres second year of existence and it was a good year as an expansion team. They won fifty two games as a sophomore team. They won sixty three games way to go Padres eleven game improvement really something Padres win totals over five years. Nineteen seventy nineteen seventy four sixty three sixty one fifty eight sixty and sixty. So the Padres were exactly the same basically for five years in a row in their division. They finished sixth out of six and nine hundred seventy the next year. They finish. Sixth. But the after that then a six after that the finish sixth. But they got all the way up to sixth after that. I will say that list to their credit. They they were at maximum forty two games out of first place at minimum twenty eight point five games out of first place. But the the Padres nine hundred hundred nineteen seventy four so little movement. The just a total of nineteen points of movement. The nineteen sixty to nineteen sixty four Indians are the runner up with just twenty five points of movement in winning percentage. So those are the most and least volatile teams of all time over a five year span. I regret work that I did into putting this together. It was I think deeply unrewarding. Okay. We'll thank you for doing that, deeply unrewarding work. One less thing. I meant to mention this..
