This was at the ASIA Inc. Friendraiser event at the Ariel International Center. Joe gave some personal stories as an answer and told people to bet on people who are broken, who have an accent and so on.
He also praised Dan Hanson and ClevelandPeople.Com and the Cleveland International Hall of Fame for their efforts to make this happen. Sorry about the lighting.
