Jeanette caught a piece of casino or sort sports betting so yeah we have two big questions in new York and one is will New York allows sports betting on professional teams. And then the second is where will the betting be able to take place. So obviously the interest groups are lining up. Other casinos like a lot goers saying. Let's added but only at casinos.
