Operator: Today's conference is being recorded.
RF: Today's conference is being recorded?
KM: It's in case an athlete decides to sue us later. We're very concerned about that.
RF: I have some friends who could sue for me, but I don't think I would.

KM: You graduated from Harvard. Ever think you'd break through the way you have this season? Or were you keeping your degree handy just in case?
RF: I wasn't expecting to play this early. That old degree is sitting in the wings, waiting for the day I have to use it.
KM: What if you forget everything you learned?
RF: Well, it's a Harvard economics degree. Even if you don't really know as much as people think, you can just show the degree and be okay.
