>> Asimo, first of all, congratulations on the win. You really dominated, I think, from the outset. I think everyone was really pulling for you. There weren't a lot of surprises.
>> Yeah, thanks.
>> I just wanted to ask you what was your game plan going into this, and how did you prepare for D?
>> Well, you know, D's a -- D's a tough competitor. He always brings his A-game. I just wanted to go out there and give 110 percent. And sometimes I would literally give 110 percent because there was a glitch with the online polling system. But regardless, you know, I just want to thank God for giving me the strength to compete, and I got some good looks out there, got some tough breaks, and some folks just went my way.
>> Yeah, you in the sombrero.
>> Before the tourney, people were talking about early-upset. A lot of people talked about the stair incident and that you were late for practice.
>> You're talking about practice, man? We're talking about practice? We'll talk about practice, man. We're talking about practice. We're going to talk about the game, we're talking about practice, man. You come in the arena, you see me play, you see me give everything I've got, right?
>> Absolutely --
>> Well I'm just --
>> Practice. Practice, man, we're talking about practice. Yeah, you in the shoes.
>> Probably the toughest draw of the number one [Inaudible], you have the ballroom dancing robot, the [Inaudible] fridge, and the Sony [Inaudible] --
>> Let me tell you something, there are no easy draws in this tournament. Every draw is tough. You've just got to go out there and give 110 to 120%, and you've just got to battle every step of the way. And I'm not literally talking about battle, because that's against the rules.
>> Hey Asimo! What's this thing here about sex with fax machines, huh?
