The only thing we can say is … who could ever think about not wanting to stand in a pyramid in front of twenty-thousand people screaming at you? Would there be anything more exciting to you, for us? Obviously not. To think that we would not want to … live that moment of validation, after the last ten … fifteen years of work that we’ve done, that we would put someone else in for that moment, which is so magic?? That is crazy to me. [Chuckles softly and breathlessly.] So … I can’t even imagine not being in the pyramid at that point and asking for someone to live that magical moment.
