Tom Back: Unfortunately there aren't going to my son's school, which is too bad, he would have been thrilled and likely would have been one of the few kids who knew who these guys are.

I'm hoping they will give me a few moments to talk to John Farrell and some of the others. If you have suggestions for questions, now would be the time to make them.
