Hello. Dr. Odd here. I met Motts a few years ago because he worked at Motorola with my friend Roman. He started playing softball and bowling with us and we became friends. He also went to Marquette with us. He is a nice dude that I like hanging out with and talking baseball and football with because he knows a whole ton about sports. Motts is a great dude. You can drop him a line here. Andrew Mankiewicz
