Anyone who knows me knows that I've always tried to run my career like an athlete: have that discipline, that work ethic and gamesmanship… So I'd like to believe I understand how extraordinary these kinds of accomplishments are. To be able to be a part of honoring people who've achieved at this level… the honor is all mine.”
