No he didn't. He gave one example of what he called 'impossible." And since Barry eventually got there, I guess it was possible. And sorry English grammar Nazis, I wasn't being a smart Alec. I...

Steve, it's not me personally who's saying it; I am going by the rule on relocation and marking the lie, 802.03 D. It so civically says the nearest spot on e playing surface.
