It's great to see, but since I do it all the time, I tend not to think much of it and just think it's normal. Sorry if I'm diminishing the act, since as mentioned it's nice to see teammates helping each other and getting close, but I don't attach a captain's label to those acts.

I do agree with everything else. I especially like that he avoided politics when Palin was brought into conversation; perhaps taking a cue from Gomez who refused to say anything except he likes seeing fellow Alaskans doing well.
OK, I won't say go out of his way, but you don't often see a guy becoming great friends with the new guy who doesn't speak the language well and such like he's doing, at least you don't tend to hear about it often.
