Oh I was just saying I heard it once and it was due to her being new and not
knowing anyone and just standing there. when I go to practices I watch but
white and red scarfs are always making sure that the people there are
getting the reps with them that they want to the best of their ablities. Has
a group It feels to me that we do are best that we can and this is from a
person like his don who's a primary heavy fighter.
