Q: When you started Nike Securities, you said your goal was not to try to get there fast, but right. You also said you were not coming out of retirement to "get beat," but rather to win. How close are you in terms of where you want Nike to be?

A: I'm very, very pleased with the progress of Nike. At Nike, they are meeting all their debt service requirements, and they've also had a return on capital, which for a company that new I'm just thrilled. Our objective at Nike is not to make money right here; our objective is to bring together all the pieces.
