Personal Quote:

Most of all I was saddling that team with a psychological burden so that they would be muttering, 'Cobb is crazy. He'll run anytime and in any situation.' It would help give them the jitters and they'd concentrate so much on me they were not paying any attention to the business at hand. My failures rarely were complete failures. They were more like future investments. See more »
