"I'm very proud that we followed all the protocols leading up to the travel. And when we got here to Orlando, there were so many things you can't control, but in hindsight, we probably needed to
have a test on the Friday before our Saturday travel. Our last test was the Thursday and we had all negatives prior to travel. The food and the beverage on the place, that was part of the protocol,
that wasn't against protocol. So maybe it did help us spread the virus for anybody that was positive on the plane. And then we did train two consecutive times when we were here in Orlando after
getting positive results and maybe that could have helped spread it. So all lessons learned. I think the other teams learned from it, the league learned from it. And we certainly did, but here we
are learning, growing and stronger from it."
