You've got a tiny head. - Yeah, I know. I know I got a small lid, but... I am ready to go. I wouldn't mind a little warm up, though. That's good advice. You're helping me already. Oof. Jeez! Yeah, you know I... might have hyped myself a little bit. Yeah, a little bit. But, it's fun. We're having fun out here. Petey... Petey can obviously swing. A lot of the guys can't. Oh! Did he get one? Finally! Yeah... everyone's, I guess, expecting me to have it, but hitting was never my strong suit, so... One more. Hold on, hold on. Until I get one. So I might be here... they might have to delay the game.
