    Amazingly humble. In his autobiography he wrote "this venture has been structured for three men, and I consider my third to be as necessary as either of the other two".

    He was also quoted as saying "I certainly thought that I did not have the best seat of the three. But I can say in all honesty, I was thrilled with the seat that I did have."

    I have heard the audio between Mike and CAPCOM when something like this is said to him "you are the only man in the world not able to watch this in a television screen".
