MISTY ON SAMPLING EACH OTHER'S SPORTS

I hit slow-pitch at the batting cages, nothing over 40 miles an hour. Matt's not bad on the volleyball court. He likes me to crush him--to spike balls as hard as I can at him. I think it's a catcher's mentality. He's used to blocking.

MATT ON MISTY'S WINNING GOLD IN ATHENS

It was tough not to be there. A guy I know was there for the gold medal match. He called me and gave me a play-by-play. He'd hold up the phone so I could hear the crowd cheering for her.

MISTY ON MATT'S MAKING THE MARLINS AFTER A DECADE IN THE MINORS

I get so excited when he suits up. He loves baseball so much. When he thought maybe he should quit to go back to school, I told him that your body only lasts so long but school will be there. I know athletes who quit and regretted it. I didn't want him to have any regrets.
