    Speaking of Warwick Davis. You should watch ‘The Ricky Gervais Podcast’ on iTunes titled ‘Elmo pops in to see Ricky in London’. Funny!

    Great interview guys. I may just have to see it because I LOVED Cool Runnings. My roommate at the time stole pay per view and I watch it like 6 times in a row and would often quote from it in the 90s.

    “A gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.”
