"Coach, I'll ask, but there's nothing he can tell me that'll convince me I didn't see daylight the entire time."

I guess the only bad part was when partner showed up uninvited to the conversation & said "I had no tag either"...
I have been quoted as asking a coach (actually several, I like using this phrase) "So, you want me to ask my partner if he can make me unsee what I saw?" And then I just wait.
