We've had MaryAnn Davis on before, but we've updated the interview with a new one. Take a listen to her side of Coach Bob Knight. A story that was omitted was how she sat in the Suite with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and each time she reached into her bag, be it for mints, gum, or lip balm, the Secret Service was very inquisitive and she decided to watch the rest of the game down on the floor.
