HOW THE DEVIL ARE YOU? I'm doing all right. A little tired but I'm doing all right.

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU DON'T HAVE A LACROSSE GAME, WHAT YOU GOIN' TO DO?

This Saturday night, I'll be practising but on a regular Saturday night, probably just hang out with my girlfriend. Maybe go out to a pub and have a couple of drinks.

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF -- AND COOL CAN'T BE ONE OF THEM?

(Laughs). That's tough ... that's really tough. Let me get back to you on that.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

Probably my championship rings. Those mean a lot.

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

Jack Daniels and ginger ale.

SPEAKING OF POISON, WHO'S THE LAST ONE OF YOUR ROUGHNECK TEAMMATES YOU'D WANT TO SIT DOWN AND TRY TO BEAT IN A DRINKING CONTEST?

I'd dominate everybody -- I could outdrink them all. (smiles)

WHO'S THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

The last person I punched was probably (Roughnecks captain Tracey) Kelusky. Just joking around. No hard feelings. Just goofing around.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST UNPLEASANT CHARACTERISTIC?

Definitely grumpy Kaleb.

WHAT'S THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU'VE EVER BOUGHT?

Oh geez ... probably a picture that my girlfriend wanted for the house. It's some kind of greek, european picture thing that cost me $400.

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?

You're only as good as your last shift.

WHAT TV SERIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE ON DVD?

Family Guy.

WHAT'S THE BEST CONCERT YOU'VE EVER SEEN?

The last one I saw was Ozzy Osbourne. The best one was probably Nickelback.

BOBBLEHEADS. THEY'RE KIND OF SILLY AREN'T THEY?

They are.

BUT WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE ONE OF YOURSELF THOUGH?

Oh god ... I wouldn't buy it.

YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF HOURS TO KILL. BOOK OR VIDEO GAME?

Video game.

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?

I'll say my worst habit is probably watching The Simpsons.

WHO'S THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON IN YOUR CELLPHONE?

Probably Jarome Iginla.

SPEAKING OF CELLPHONES, WHAT'S YOUR RING?

It's Dumb and Dumber, the John Denver is full of sh--. (At this point, he played it -- a snipet from the movie when Harry and Lloyd complain the Rocky Mountains are rocky enough and slag John Denver for his famous song).

WHY WON'T GARY ROBERTS BE YOUR TEAMMATE?

I think his ego's too big ... I'm just kiddin' (laughs). I don't know. I think it would be good for the sport and I think it would be good for his charities because he could probably tie in something with the Roughnecks. I don't know why he wouldn't.

EVER ORDER PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON PAY PER VIEW?

Yes I have.

ALL THE TIME?

No, only when the Rock is involved.

WHAT'S THE STRANGEST PIECE OF FAN MAIL YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

I haven't really got any strange ones. Just usually cards from kids.

WHAT'S THE UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

Well, I think it's the best thing but everybody makes fun of my Bruce Lee T-shirt.

THEN THERE WERE THOSE FLASHY RED NIKES YOU WORE THE FIRST SEASON IN CALGARY. EVERYONE MADE FUN OF YOU FOR THOSE, DIDN'T THEY?

I still got them.

HOW COME YOU DON'T WEAR THEM ANYMORE?

Because everybody kept making fun of me (laughs)

COULD YOU BE CONVINCED TO KARAOKE AND IF SO, WHAT SONG?

I could, I've done it before. The song is -- I have to have a partner -- it's that one, the duet from Grease. The one with John and what's her name. I think it's Endless Nights ... no, no it's Summer Lovin'.

NOW, BACK TO THE FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

Oh yea. Charming ... charismatic ... (pause)

WHAT ABOUT STAND-UP ONES LIKE HONEST, HARD WORKING, COMMUNITY MINDED?

Ya, those will work.
