Genes which means there's 88.
Games at home that's a lot of -- that need to be -- yes -- -- lots of things exactly.

And that means that less than half of their stadium was filled up.
During majority of their home games since it -- cheaper Beers for this.
So that when this season and they're hoping to kind of draw on those people spokespeople for the -- said that they're hoping it kind of cuts down and barriers to let the enjoyment of the -- At the stadium -- progress this evening in Cleveland.

These combo deals and -- they're gonna.
They're going to take a smaller profit -- -- for example if they do something like that.
At least -- bodies into the stands and that's what these teams really -- because then they can make more money at her.
Purchased because people are buying higher volume and -- instead of going says.
Going and eating at home I did that -- never had our they'll eat dinner and give FMI far in the stadium big inning 323.
