Johnstown, Penn.-born slotback Geroy Simon celebrated his 30th birthday last Sunday.

24 hours: How did you spend your birthday?

#81, Geroy Simon: "I sat and watched football all day and had a little dance competition with my kids, then I went to the Keg and ate some dinner."

24: What's your favourite meal at the Keg?

#81: "Ribsteak with the lobster on the side."

24: Who won the dance competition?

#81: "My son. He's learning."

24: What's your favourite music?

#81: "I like B.B. King, but right now (I'm listening to) Anthony Hamilton and Usher."

24: You're a big baseball fan?

#81: "I don't have a specific team, I like specific players, I like Barry Bonds, Derek Jeter, A-Rod, Manny Ramirez, I love Pedro (Martinez)."

24: How do you feel about Bonds and the steroid rumours?

#81: "He brings excitement to the Giants and major league baseball. Everybody has their opinion on it. Until they prove it I just let it go."

24: What's your prediction for the World Series?

#81: "Probably Red Sox and St. Louis again. St. Louis is playing real good and the Sox are always tough. Curt Schilling is back.

24: How did it feel at practice this week with the smoke from the Burns Bog fire?

#81: "I felt like I got a year's worth of second hand smoke out there. You've just got to adapt to it. At the beginning of practice I felt a little light-headed."
