Thanks, Donald. Personal Nations Cup highlights: seeing you on the TV rooting with the American Outlaws for both the semifinal and the final. N


Agree, always fun to see Donald!

I like that we can look forward to George Carlin being an ambassador for the human race in the future. And I like that the takeaway is being excellent to each other.

Flawless movie.

Rock the Van Halen, dudes!
