It definitely wasn't like, 'Hey, I'm going to steal that, and nobody's going to know.' The original 'T.R.O.Y.' came out in 1992, and it was like a 20th anniversary kind of thing. All of those intentions were there for it to be resurrecting a classic for a new generation. I tried to honor it.

Karl G. Maeser

There is only one Mariano Rivera. There won't be another person who will come along and do what he did. No one does it like him.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
