5:18 pm
than the plays on the the field. >> we'll get out of here with this one. do you think those guys have a sense of it's history of this place. >> you know when we used to come through that tunnel it's all damp and musky but there's that light and sometimes there's light in salvation and sometimes the train on the other side but when we came through that we knew someone was about to take a but kicking so they have a sense of what's out in front of them. it's not just the closure of this. it's the play offs and it's time forfma ape new era and for new memories to be made in ape new stadium and this is the group that's going to carry that through so them understand and i would be shocked if they don't get it done. >> true words spoken by aaron
