My father left me with a saying that I've carried my entire life and tried to pass on to our kids: 'Tough times don't last, tough people do,'
In baseball, I was always in control of everything until I let the ball go.
Most guys who don't like me are either Democrats or Yankee fans.
I'm not sure I can think of any scenario more enjoyable than making 55,000 people from New York shut up.
War is by no means something glamorous, and I don't think that should ever be forgotten.
I've been playing games for 30 years, and I've been a hard-core gamer.
It is all about rehab. Most doctors can make you 100 percent well physically. I would tell you that it is 25 percent about the surgery and 75 percent about the rehab.
I don't miss anything I did for a living.
I played on teams with 24 guys pulling the rope one way and one guy pulling the other. I've seen how destructive it can be. I tell them, 'If 13 of you are insanely successful and one fails, we all lose.'
In my mind, I never doubted whether I was going to achieve what I wanted to do. I just had to decide what it is I wanted to do.
I've always wanted to be the best in the world as a baseball player, so when I started to think about opening a business, it was with that mindset.
Baseball is not a sport you can achieve individually.
As much as I'd like to think I'm a really good designer, I'm average.
The money I saved during baseball was probably all gone. I'm tapped out.
One of the walls of my bedroom was a collage of about 15 years of baseball photos. I would cut out the baseball pictures from every issue and I had this huge montage of thousands of pictures.
I tell people all the time that without the fans, I've got nothing.
Short of baseball and my family, it was gaming. And gaming is a $20-million to $200-million multi-year effort. It's an insane, stupid and utterly irresponsible act. But I did it.
I did all the stupid things you'd expect from a 21-year-old kid with money.
Every dollar I can't commit to my company that's paid in taxes is paying a government that I believe is too big and doing way too much that I don't want done.
I wanted to create a multibillion dollar company that lets me go out and let us go out and change the world and create a Skin Cancer Awareness Center that costs a quarter a billion dollars.
I'd like to think I did well. I'd like to think that, if I had a must-win game, the guys I played with would want me to have the ball. But no, I don't think I deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
I did everything I could to win every time I was handed the ball.
So every dollar of income that I have that is potentially taxed away is a dollar I can't put in my company to create a job. My entire company is around job creation.
I had the perfect job for a gamer. From February to October, I'd get up at 7 in the morning with nothing to do but play games until I had to be at the park around 1 or 2 o'clock. When I got back after the game, I played until 3 or 4 in the morning.
On a two week road trip I know I can get by better with no underwear than no laptop.
