Tyler you seem so fearless compare to the others.  You might not say much, but there is a look in your eyes that seem to go for miles and miles, further then anyone will ever know.  You always seem to stay cool and calm no matter how crazy or dangerous things or Marty get around you.  This is my # 1 program and to me, you are one of the best.
