How popular is an all star game these days and I keep hearing about the decline allure of the baseball game but isn't is it hasn't lost -- lower.
Well I don't -- Lost its allure I think more importantly we're in the transition period nothing Jeff will be a load -- this -- an agent.
I think we have a lot of the superstars that we've normally seen in the past but A-Rod but they're cheaters that Albert -- -- that.
And now we're starting to see a more younger group of players here that are now basically kind of taken the -- but.
American public really don't know them yet so I think that I -- that I still think that it's a huge family oriented environment and I think it's a great event.
But I think that yeah -- may have lost that solar just a little bit.
Yeah I would think about that yeah.
And hasn't must mean I still love the Cracker Jacks until well things painstaking yet the ball game automatic and and -- games.

Advantages this city.
Does the all star game actually have any kind of at the economic benefits.
All it's phenomenal it's huge for the state -- new -- -- I think it's been reported 91 point.
Five million dollars of economic spending that will go into the states I think it's a phenomenal.
You know platform for the city to actually gain some much needed dollars you know it actually brings jobs and I think in terms of a market right now.
Where jobs you know they had depending on who you talk to -- much needed.
