"When I was given the opportunity to be a GM in Major League Soccer, I did what anybody does who has no clue what they're doing: I went out and bought a 'Business for Dummies' book and clearly on the first page it says that when you're in a public setting and you have the chance to suck up to the boss, do so. So let me tell you something about Phil Anschutz: He's one of the most intelligent [men] I've ever met and he's one of the best looking gentlemen I've ever met. He has that equally beautiful and intelligent wife Nancy."
