We'd embed the video, but NBC still thinks the viral internet might be harmful to their health. Also, they hate it when people do the advertising for them, so they just make you go to Youtube to watch the video instead of letting your friendly neighborhood blogger do the work for them. Corporate idiocy aside, it is amusing to watch Buechel thank trainers the whole way down. Take notes for future retirement ceremonies, reader, because you're seeing a gold standard in action here.
