North Quotations

I grew up playing hockey and baseball, so I wish I had time to get back into it, but living in L.A. and North Carolina, you have to take advantage of the golf. You find yourself at charity golf events or going to the Emmys and meeting Kevin Costner. You don't get to do as much fishing or hockey as you used to, but there are certainly other payoffs.
Diego Klattenhoff
