Dan Cramer, Team Rampage – Last week was the first episode where I got a lot of air time. I think prior to that they showed me sleeping in an upright position directly in front of the camera and stuffing food in my mouth. Ha, that’s about it. But since last week the reaction has been good. I think everyone enjoyed the fight, as sloppy as it may have been.
