This industry is all done for. I will be gone pretty soon. I don't think we'll last another year. I don't see how with the fuel prices. There is just no way. I mean, do the math.
The ball can change hands a thousand-plus times, but it will never lose that DNA. The chance of replicating this exact DNA sequence is one in 33 trillion, so it's virtually impossible.
