"Hi, I'm Steve Adubato. More importantly, check this... check out this guy. You just saw him on video. Buster Skrine, Number 41, Cornerback for the great New York Jets. They're gonna be even better next year. Founder of Skrine Way. By the way, what were we just watching? That's Skrine Way, it's my foundation/company. But what we do is give people experiences that donate towards the charity, so that it helps single women and children in need. What's the whole fitness thing? The fitness thing.

So just the creativity alone, just by the people I'm around, like it helps me out. So one of my best friends, Blue Cooper, he's an artist.
