We talked about why he’s not a huge fan of the Boy Scouts, the last time he paid to attend a sporting event, the most he’s ever lost playing poker, why he recently gave up his membership at Dallas National, how he manages to stay married, this recent New York Times story about him, this excellent Grantland story about him, and gin rummy — among other topics.
