Good To Know

In our interview, Lynch shared some fun facts about himself:

"As a twenty year old, I spent a summer as a maid changing beds at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park so that I could climb the Tetons on my days off."

"My only stint in jail was the result of jaywalking."

"I'm pretty short, but I've run into more than my share of ceiling fans."

"I love to sail, even when there's no wind."

"I've got an irrational allegiance to the Seattle Sonics basketball team."

"I love to hike with my wife in the rain and watch comedies with my 12-year-old daughter."
