Quotes

Tuff: [six months after Lane died] Back in the spring, Lane said 'this is your year', that I'd win the championship. I told him he was full of it. Here it is, a couple of weeks away, and I really believe I got a chance. I never had anybody believe that much in me.
Kellie Frost: He really loved you, Tuff.
