#Quote
1Stengel just talked his head off. I opened the show and asked him a question, and he talked two or three minutes. Then I asked him another one, and by the time he got through with that, they were signaling me to break for a commercial. At the end of the show......I got a call from the guy in New York who had hired me, and he said, "It was great. Absolutely great." All I could think was, "My God, I didn't do anything."
2I don't know anybody else who lives 1,000 miles away from their job and gets to commute back and forth. The owner said, 'You can live in your beloved Swifton, but don't you dare miss a game.' I had a few close calls, but I didn't miss any.
