Veteran offensive lineman Moe Elowonibi wants to celebrate his 40th birthday early by helping the Lions win the Grey Cup.

24: You have a Super Bowl ring, but no Grey Cup ring.

#65 Moe Elowonibi: "It would be nice to shut it down and have one for each hand. I'd be more proud of this one than the other. I'm older and understand what it's like, you don't always get a chance to go to the big one."

24: Vancouver 86ers drafted you almost 20 years ago as a soccer goalkeeper?

#65: I think (Bob) Lenarduzzi did it as a little bit of a stunt. He had seen me play on some provincial select teams."

24: You were born in Nigeria, which has produced many great athletes.

#65: "I felt proud being Canadian and Nigerian when Daniel (Igali) won the gold medal (for wrestling in 2000), it's fun to see other people from my background do well. Nigeria is a country that's struggled and a lot of people have left because of that."

24: What's on your iPod?

#65: "I do audio books. I've got the iTrip so I can play the audio books out of my car radio. I used to get the cassettes for (college) road trips - it's a 24-hour drive from Utah back to Canada. It's best to get a horror book at night."

24: What's your favourite book of all-time?

#65: "Stephen King's The Stand, the unabridged version. In college I got a minor in English lit so I read a lot of the classics. One of the first books I read as a kid was Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. I've always been a science fiction fan."
