Dave Russo is the kind of guy you would bring home to meet your parents. I've known Dave since Freshman year of college (in Northeastern, PA). He was the break-dancing, state wrestling champ complete with the Massachusetts accent, and such a gentleman! (His mom & dad should be proud)
He was the one guy you would completely trust to walk you home after a late-night party (a-hem...wink-wink) and you know he wouldn't "try" anything. Plus, he's pretty buff, so, nobody would ever mess with him!
I'm very glad to see Dave on the show and wish him great success! He totally deserves it -- he was always the "Wise Guy" in college and quick to make everyone laugh. He's an incredibly talented guy! GO DAVE!
