On his wife, Erika
I met her at Western and had a mad crush on her. I'd follow her around, but she was seeing someone. One day we were walking to biology, and I said, 'You know class is canceled today.' I just said it for fun. So she went back to her room and missed it. Turns out we had a pop quiz that day, so she couldn't stand me for the longest time. But I was persistent, and eventually she opened her heart and the rest is history. Now 15 some odd years later we have one son, Christian, a baby on the way and a stepdaughter, Michale. I'm a family man.

I had it blown up, and it's hanging in my basement. Tears are flowing down my face, and my arm is broken: It signifies my career and life. There was so much pain and hard work. I remember days [growing up] it was 100 degrees. I would be running up and down the street in the neighborhood, and people would laugh at me, saying, 'Are you crazy? You're not going anywhere.' That motivated me. You're not going to outwork me. You may be faster, you may be bigger, you may be stronger, but you won't outwork me. And I'm not afraid. I don't care if you're 6'6" and 300 pounds, I'm going to try to make you pay. --As told to Lisa Altobelli
