My manager came up with the idea of taking a Pro Tool rig out on the road to record every night and I thought it was a great idea.

The best cover letters I've read are from people who have a passion for my company, and can make that passion come to life on a page. The letters that make me say, 'Yes! This person really gets it.' Because, at the end of the day, I want to hire people who already get it. Most hiring managers do.

When I first started out in my career, I'd been a lit major in college so I didn't have a lot of choices. The traditional options were management consultant or investment banking, and I hadn't even taken an economics class so those were pretty much out. I didn't want to go into academia.

The catch off Bobby Morgan (a backhanded grab of the Brooklyn Dodger's line drive in September 1951 at Ebbets Field) in Brooklyn was the best catch I ever made. Jackie Robinson and (Giants manager) Leo Durocher were the first people I saw when I opened my eyes

I have three kids and two great dads and it's not always easy, but you have to try to be a little selfless and we manage just fine.
My father is a marvelous mentor, and if you're going to have a mentor, the ones that work best let you make your own mistakes.

I intend to give my best, to improve things and to create the football team in relation to my image and my football philosophy. I'm not a defender of old or new football managers. I believe in good ones and bad ones, those that achieve success and those that don't. Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one.
I remember my daughter Deni coming along, and she was so pure and caring of everybody and everything.

I think it's the best thing going, parenthood.
