And can't blame excited for a three day weekend. I am excited. You got any plans? Not any. No. I still haven't made any plans yet. I know I'm a last minute person. I've been asking you everyday because I'm waiting for you to tell me. I'm renting a boat. Well, I am going to sit on my patio and have a glass of wine. Oh, there's a play, and I don't even know that you had a patio. Yes, I do. Well, you know what I want to say. Hello, Teo. Jordan burn field in the newsroom. I never get to talk to Jordan. Hi. Hi, G. How's it going? It's it's going well, It's good to be anywhere. Oh, it's so good to have you did I hear in the news cast that you said that a baseball player he cut himself washing dishes. Yes. Jose Quintana, who is a cub Starting pitcher was washing dishes apparently lacerated his thumb and doing so on his pitching hand, and he's going to be out at least two weeks. And presumably longer because he had surgery on it. And the season restarts or begins in three weeks. Do you know what we have Something in common? Because I did the same thing. Except, you know, I had this brilliant idea that I was goingto prop up. My iPad on the counter, and I was like, I'll watch Netflix. We'll keep within two watching while I wash the dishes, and then I cut myself. It was pretty bad, right? So how did you see what I'm trying to figure out is how exactly this occurred like where you were You rinsing a knife off or something I was, and that's how ridiculously idiotic I wass because I just wasn't thinking. I was like, binge watching. And then I was like, Oh, I have so many dishes I got, like, you know, kind of organizing clean. I thought, well, I'll just I'll just prop up the iPad here and just keep watching, you know, and then do my chores. And that's how it happened. You know, and I get you know is somebody who does dishes often, Unfortunately, that you are there certain things that can go in the dishwasher. But if I'm Jose Quintana? Yes, I'm making $10 million here like baseball. I'm thinking I'm just gonna throw it in my fancy dishwasher. And I'm also just impressed that he was doing his dishes. You know, I know what a good guy a domestic man costing his team. I know that. Of course, you're a news anchor, but I know that you have a sports background. So I just want to ask you quickly. I saw this little like tidbit that basically one of the rules. One of the protocols for when baseball comes back is that there's going to be no spitting, no spitting. So how difficult is that gonna be? I honestly like the funny thing about this G is that you think that old like They could. You could tell him to stop spitting. But that is so ingrained in baseball players. Why, What is it? It's just a thing. I mean, I played baseball through high school and you watch the big leaguers do it, and then you start doing it. I think it's because you're out there and it's hot. And you're Standing around for a long period of time. And so maybe your mouth gets dry or something. But I bet that this will be violated, not even because players are actively trying to break the rules just cause they won't be thinking for a moment. And There will be some kind of punishment, I suppose. But I have to say like that is a hard thing to break a lot of the habits that athletes have. Those are hard things to break. I say that's probably that's just like you said. It's second nature, So I guess you know there's a lot of like, sort of your standing around a lot. You know, while you're waiting to play or goingto Action mode. Yeah, I mean, you're you're in ready position, But then when you're In ready position. You then will kind of get into Ah Crouch, so to speak to get into fielding position when the ball is pitched. So if you ever watch guys when they're on the field when you're at the ballpark, they are moving on every pitch. But you know you're standing out there for a while, basically a slower game. And so guys air spinning guys or scratching guys are doing all the things that baseball players do. I'm glad you mentioned it. The scratching that has happened. Alright, Jordan. I appreciate that. Thank you so much. I'm glad to be able to talk to you tonight. About the most important alright. My goodness. What a surprise that, you know.
