We really do consider ourselves caretakers of the organization and of a tradition. Almost everyone who works here was a child patron, or grew up in the choruses. We're all proud to be a part of that. We don't say, 'What can I do with my theater' It's really about how can we leave it in good shape for the next generation.
As everyone in this room knows, Steve is one of the finest gentlemen you will ever meet in any walk of life. Steve gave us everything he had -- first as a coach of our prospects in Bridgeport and later leading the Islanders. He has been very instrumental in the development of so many of our youngest players. It is my hope that Steve will stay in the organization.
I am very excited to join the Eagles. I have heard many great things about the organization and they have one of the best teams in the league. They have won a lot of football games. I can't wait to get going in practice. I am looking to contribute in any way I can to help keep that thing going forward.
