So yeah, it's unique to be in the company that some people have put me in. I guess I should say I put myself in, but some people consider me in. And the fact that I've done it at this organization, which is largely considered the best in the National Football League and all the tradition that surrounds here – and I'm part of that now. It's long-lasting and something that will never leave my consciousness and hopefully will be appreciated for a long time."
