Did we lose or did we win ... It's something that you've got to see to believe it. You really do. People back home ask me about this place and I tell them, 'You've got to come see it to believe it.' I don't think you can describe the power of these people that come to the game day in and day out, and the support they give you. It really makes you go out there and play harder, play better and basically be a better person just because you know they're watching.
I never thought I'd be here, so it's kind of special in my own little way. When you come up playing in this game, you don't really know what you're in for, so you're fortunate to have a career like I've had. I never thought I'd be where I'm at. It's a nice milestone for me. I really never thought I'd get this far. It's nice.
