KAITLIN HAWAYEK: Right now is just a big excitement. You know we've been ready and preparing for this moment for our entire careers And we're both really ready to take it. So in training every day, we stay really in the moment with each other and that's something that we've practiced and cultivated as a skill for the last eight, nine years of our career. And that's something we're really putting into practice this season is just staying really focused on each day to make the most out of each day rather than looking too far ahead, but we're very excited.

JEAN-LUC-BAKER: Yeah. And just to add to that, we're like we are very excited and we're very fortunate to be training with two other teams that have been-- that have gone to the games and I know that Evan and Manny will be asked a lot of questions as we get closer just how things are run and same with Hubble and Donohue.
