"We wanted to sell that this is a thing. And the first show we did on ESPN Radio was really awkward. When we finished, she was annoyed and I was annoyed because I knew it wasn't good. She asked me why I was so tense. I wanted the world to see her the way I see her for the talent I know she is. I micromanaged my wife and it was the dumbest thing ever. I was driving the show and was limiting her ability and we finished. I told her that I totally screwed this thing up. I don't know why I did that."
