    Great interview. I do want to point out in my defense that the pole Emily referred to was only about waist high, and that it jumped right in front of me when I wasn't looking.

    You can't talk your way out of a story like that. I was running and talking with my team once in Cincinnati and ran into a stop sign. You never live it down. I have a stop sign in my garage presented to me at the banquet to remind me of the incident.
