Thanks. This has been a very strange year. I can definitely say that. Uhmmmm, you know what? I was trying to think. I think this is probably the only award I'm going to win here tonight so I was trying to think maybe I should just say a whole lot of stuff right here, right now, just get it all out of my system. Then I thought about all year long everything building up and everything, just blow it all, just tonight, just, just say everything! But I'm not. Thanks.

I'd want to thank my beautiful wife Gretchen who I love more than anything in the world. And I really have to take a pee right now, so I'm going to go. Thank you.
