HOW THE DEVIL ARE YOU? Not bad.

IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AND YOU DON'T HAVE A GAME OR PRACTICE. WHATCHA GONNA DO?

Probably go out for dinner or watch a movie with my gal.

PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF.

Fun, married, happy, mad and hard-working.

SPEAKING OF MARRIED, YOU GOT HITCHED IN VEGAS WEDNESDAY. DO YOU FEEL ANY DIFFERENT NOW?

Not really, actually.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AT SCHOOL?

School? Let's say unstudious. I got a lot of sleep.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST TREASURED MATERIAL POSSESSION?

I would say any one of my Team Canada jerseys.

WHAT'S YOUR POISON?

Gin and soda -- actually, double gin and soda in a large glass.

WHO'S THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON IN YOUR CELLPHONE?

Bret Hart.

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU PUNCHED AND WHY?

I can't remember, really. Maybe (Roughnecks owner) Brad Banister. Just kidding. I don't know.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST MOST UNPLEASANT CHARACTERISTIC?

Napoleon Syndrome or Napoleon Complex. Whatever it's called.

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

A car stereo. I didn't even own a car. I was supposed to be getting a car and my buddy had this great stereo. I never ended up buying the car. But I had a great stereo.

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?

Don't save all your money for when you're old. You won't like it when you get there. That's what my grandpa told me.

WHAT REPAIRS COULD YOU PERFORM ON YOUR CAR?

My dad's a mechanic. I just give it to him.

YOU DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM HIM ALONG THE WAY?

He tried to teach me but I figured, hey, he's a mechanic. Why is he trying to teach me? I'll just give it to him if I have any problems.

WHAT'S YOUR CULINARY SPECIALTY?

I like the whole Sunday roast. Potatoes, gravy, Yorkshire pudding. Coleslaw from scratch. The whole nine yards.

WHAT TV SERIES DO YOU WANT TO OWN ON DVD?

The Simpsons.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?

Young Guns. I've watched it six million times.

CAN YOU RECITE LINES FROM IT?

I used to know Line 300, Line 890. It was crazy. It was stupid.

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

That's a tough one. I'd have to say Motley Crue, about eight years ago in Vancouver.

DO YOU HAVE A PET?

A cocker spaniel named Daisy Duke.

WHY DAISY DUKE?

Because I'm a huge Dukes of Hazard fan.

WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

I'm not sure. Maybe being alone -- not having any family around.

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?

Copenhagen (chewing tobacco).

HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE THAT?

Fifteen years. It's terrible. Once I lose my tongue, my wife says I'm done.

WHAT MOVIE MADE YOU TEARY-EYED?

Oh frig, I'm getting sad in my old age. I can't even watch that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. But the last movie? Probably The Notebook.

EVER ORDERED PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON PPV?

Yes but not recently.

STRANGEST PIECE OF FAN MAIL YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

It's not really strange or weird but I still get stuff from Montreal fans from the year I played there (2001-02). They still send stuff to get autographed or ask for an autographed piece of paper. They're still pretty devoted.

WHAT'S THE FUNNIEST THING YOU'VE EVER SEEN DURING A LACROSSE GAME?

Jesse Phillips, about two games ago, running around with his cup on the outside of his shorts for about a minute. It was hilarious. Somehow it flipped out and he ran around the whole shift with his cup on the outside.

ANY SUPERSTITIONS?

Too many. They start around 10 p.m. the night before the game. But I can't tell you. There's about 1,000. From what side of the bed I sleep on to what I eat to where I sit in the dressing room.

WHAT'S THE UGLIEST THING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

A red thong pair of underwear that I got from Dallas Eliuk's wife. (Eliuk is the goalie for the Philadelphia Wings and plays summer ball with Kelusky in Coquitlam, B.C.). She makes lingerie and I bought some for my wife and she threw in a red thong.

DID YOU WEAR IT FOR THE WEDDING?

No but I have worn it before (laughs).

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

Sure, feed me enough booze and I'll sing. My song would probably be George Strait and Frank Sinatra, a little collaboration on Fly Me To The Moon.
