I do care if religious doctrine becomes an excuse to exclude my fellow citizens from the rights and protections our country promises.
One of the most difficult things for people who have been successful in sports is adapting to the daily world where you can't get an answer from someone until 5 o'clock tomorrow. There is always an excuse. Living 40 or 50 years like that doesn't get too exciting after a while.

I do exercises on my Wii. It's nice to have games that keep you active. It's an excuse to play video games.
Well, I work out three to four times a week, in a gym, which - thank God - is right in my building here in New York City. It's in the Reebok building, and it's got every kind of weightlifting equipment you can imagine, spread out over six floors, plus basketball courts and everything else. And because it's right in the building, there's no excuse.

I still love comic books. When you have a kid, that's an excuse to keep reading all the comic books.
