When I mentioned I wanted to put Stacey on the team, the boys groaned "Not another woman!" and the girls said something to the effect of "But she doesn't even pay for her travel!" and then I swear I heard cat claws come out. I was honestly nervous for her. Then I realized it was all in good fun because everyone loves Stacey Pace!!! Because in talking with Stacey, that's what you learn in the first 10 seconds. Not how great of a player she is. How awesome of a person she is.
The negotiations were fierce with Stacey. The others were happy just to have a shirt patch and a coupon book for McDonalds every 3 months. After several hours of back and fourth. We each held our ground but found a common place in the middle. Also, I am happy to announce that Kimberly and I will be taking a few unscheduled vacations to Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean this year. Totally unrelated to Stacey's contract of course. -Scott
