      Hi John,

      Believe it or not, the first time my wife and I met, she was a sales rep and
      me the angry customer. She walked into my office, immediately noticing the
      baseball bat leaning against the desk. Perfect service ever since :-)

      That was The Untouchables. DeNiro played Al Capone.

      Maybe not a real baseball bat. How about a Nerfbat?
