Still watching you and Kevin on tv. Earl Mottashed and wife Dottie. We met you at Akron at the hotel is the swimming pool. You gave us and our son and wife tickets for the next two matches. Been watching you ever since that time. We live in Defiance Ohio and hopefully will get to see you both another time. Good job this past few weeks. Golf is all we watch anymore, the pro football and basketball players are against my principals so will not watch. Good luck next week.
