    I think he's a pretty fascinating person....classically trained in opera, first big job on QVC? Who knew!?!

    He's pretty cool. I had no idea about his foundation.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

I think that’s pretty cool. In fact, The mikeroweWORKS Foundation has raised over a million dollars for trade school scholarships and tool stipends and has just announced a partnership with Scholarship America and funded a $250,000 educational grant to provide scholarships for those looking to finish their education in a skilled trade. That’s something you should all be proud of. I know I am, and I know for a fact that it wouldn’t have happened without you. And I’m not just saying that because you’re the boss. So thank you all very, very much."

    The man has done something with his work, eh?
    Yet another reason to have a crush on him!

    That is so very cool.
